LOVE NEVER FAILS

  PERFECT LOVE

A WOMAN SHALL COMPASS A MAN

WE DON'T WANT TO BE PREGNANT

Perfect love, have you heard of it? Have you experienced it? Have you felt it? Have you seen it? Perfect love casts out all fear. 1 John 4:18 If you ever heard Jesus, you heard Perfect Love.  If you have ever seen Jesus, you've seen Perfect Love. If you 've ever felt Jesus, you've felt Perfect Love. This Perfect Love lives in a perfect environment: heaven. The paradox about this perfect love,  is that the perfect love of Jesus and God the Father creates the environment. They affect the environment, the environment does not affect them. Perfect love affects the atmosphere, the atmosphere, does not affect perfect love. Perfect love influences the atmosphere, the biosphere, the stratosphere and every sphere, is subject to it's influence. This perfect love desires to be the dominating force and factor in your life. This love has a breadth, a length, a depth and a height. Ephesians 3:17,18,19 Even though it is more than three dimensional, no one can span or decipher it's dimensions. It supersedes all human and natural dimensions. This  perfect love was birthed from a perfect heart to a perfect heart: the heart of the Father to the heart of the Son, Jesus Christ. This love at it's zenith will be manifested in a new heaven and a new earth, that is why it can only be fully experienced in eternity. This love even requires a perfect body, to be fully enjoyed. Remember the Bride of Christ will not have a spot, blemish or wrinkle. This perfection is a reflection of God's perfect love for us.  The mind of Christ, is the only mind that can comprehend this love. The will of God is the only will, that can manifest this love. Jesus exhorts us to pray: thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven, so we can experience the maximum amount of this love on earth. All the seeds and all the fruits of hatred, rejection, malice, fear, terror and torment are disspelled by perfect love. All memories of hatred, rejection, malice, fear, terror and torment will be vanquished in an atmosphere of perfect love. You are accepted in the beloved. Ephesians 6:1 All defense systems and defense mechanisms will be decimated.  There will be no need for defenses, because there will be no offenses. It is possible to experience Perfect Love and not sense it. Remember Judas Iscariot? Had he really known Jesus, he would have repented. Peter may have passionately failed, but he passionately repented. Mary, in contrast, could see, feel, taste, touch and smell this Perfect Love.  It caused her to defy all fear of being stoned. This was a small price to pay for Perfect Love. What alabaster box could compare to Perfect Love?  An alabaster box of oil may have cost a year's wages, but Perfect Love, could all the wages of the eons pay for it? She realized that love was expensive, even priceless, it was much more valuable than a lamb without  blemish or a turtle dove. She gave liberally, because she recognized the liberality of Perfect Love. It was a rich response to a rich gift. It was a bold response to a bold gift. It was a loving response to God's Perfect Love. How much time do you spend allowing His love to be perfected? How much wealth have you  spent appreciating His Perfect Love? What traditions have you defied to get to Perfect Love? What glory have you counted as shame to pick up Perfect Love? Perfect Love is the icing on the cake, the cake and the cherry on top. Perfect Love is the hors d'oeuvre, the soup, salad, entree and the desert. Perfect Love is the bread of life, once you eat it, you will never hunger again; it's the drink of life, once you drink it, you will never thirst again. Perfect Love is the filet mignon of life, it's the best cut of everything. Perfect Love is the pearl of great price that makes the world your oyster. Perfect Love is the Mercedes Benz of life: it's expensive, luxurious, and refined; it turns heads, turns curves and it transports you to your destiny in style. Perfect Love is the consummation of all the sermons from all sixty-six books of the Bible into one.  Perfect Love sees what eyes can't see, what ears can't hear and what the heart of man can't understand. It's just that, it's perfect. It is impossible, for God who is omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent and of infinite understanding to give you love that is less than perfect. HE is love! HE is perfect! He is giving you himself, so you can be like HIM, perfect!!!
For the Lord hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man. Jeremiah 31:22. In Genesis 3:15, the Lord said: I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed:  it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise his heel. This is a prophecy of the bride of Christ, the body of Christ, the church, defeating that man of sin, the antichrist. The first manifestation of the spirit of antichrist on earth is in Genesis 3:1. He manifested through a serpent. If he could manifest through  an animal in the beginning, he can manifest through an animal in the end. His initial manifestation in the terrestrial realm is to a woman.  The same attributes in Genesis 3 are alluded to in 2 Thessalonians 2: deceitful, lying and delusional. His purpose in the beginning was to provoke man to fall, thus strippiing him of the glory of God and sonship. His purpose has not changed, neither have his  strategies and tactics. The antichrist still opposes and exalts himself above God and anyone who worships God. Notice that the seed of the woman shall bruise the serpent's head. The seed of the woman, is the church, the bride of Christ; the seed of Satan is the son of perdition,  2 Thessalonians 2:3. Perdition "apoleia" means 1. destroying, utter destruction a. of vessels 2. a perishing,  ruin, destruction a.  of money b. the destruction which consists of eternal misery in hell.  This is the time for the full manifestation of this seed: the son of perdition to manifest.  This is the seed in Genesis 3:15 that is at enmity with the woman. This is the seed at enmity with the bride of Christ, the church. How long will thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the Lord hath created a new thing in the earth. A woman shall compass a man. Jeremiah 31:22  The word daughter in Hebrew is bath, Strong's H1323. "Bath" indicates not only daughter, girl and female child, but adopted daughter. We are the adopted daughter mentioned in Jeremiah 31:22.  The reason I am convinced of this is in 1 Corinthians 11:3, Paul says, that the man is the head of the woman.  So Jeremiah was not prophesying about a shift in order. He was prophesying about God's chosen people having victory over their enemy.  Another indicator, that Jeremiah is referring to the bride of Christ is he calls this " adopted daughter" a virgin in Jeremiah 31:21. Jesus Christ will consummate His covenant with the virgin, the bride of Christ. When the Holy Spirit reveals to Jeremiah that he will make a new covenant with Israel in Jeremiah 31:31-34, he states that it will be a covenant like that between a man and his wife. This covenant will be based on the heart. God said He will not divorce them for what they have done, so the marriage will continue.     The marriage will continue, because in Jeremiah 31:3, God says He loves them with an everlasting love. "A woman shall compass a man" Compass in the Poel tense of Hebrew means to: a. encompass, surround b.to come out, assemble round c. to march, go about and d. to enclose, envelop. This woman, the bride of Christ who is part of the one new man, Ephesians 2:15, will march like a soldier and ambush the son of perdition. The spirit of antichrist is the root cause of the increased persecution of women. At the core of female genocide and fratricide are:  I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise his heel. Genesis 3:15  Every time he sees a woman, he becomes newly enraged, because it reminds him of that  prophecy. He intends to destroy the woman, the bride of Christ and prevent her from conceiving, gestating and producing seed. The increased persecution of women, is a prophetic sign of the increased persecution of the church.   The massive oppression of women, is a prophetic sign of massive persecution of the church.  The ubiquitous perversion of women, is a prophetic sign of ubiquitous perversion in the church.  The pervasive prostitution of women,  is a sign of the pervasive prostitution of the church. A woman shall compass a man, that son of perdition; yet not any woman or every woman. One of the fiercest battles in the last day will be between the harlot and the bride of Christ. The son of perdition, the antichrist will enlist the Babylonian harlot to oppose, resist, and destroy the church. His ultimate plan is to consummate what he started in the beginning: to deceive multitudes, steal their identity and cause them to fall away.  God the Father will soon consummate what He started and the antichrist will attempt to consummate what he started. There will be a falling away, 2 Thessalonians 2:3, but "A woman shall compass a man" and the gates of hell shall not prevail against her. Matthew 16:18
God is love. Love never fails. The constitution may fail, but love never fails. The government may fail, but love never fails.  The dollar may fail,  the yen may fail, the pound may fail, the (Swiss) franc may fail, but love never fails. The healthcare system may fail, but love never fails. Crops may fail, but love never fails. The justice system may fail, but love never fails. The word fail in the Greek is katargeo: kat-arg-eh-o, which means abolish, cease, destroy, do away, become (make) of no (none, without) effect,  loose,  bring(come) to nought, put away(down), vanish away, make void. God's love never ceases. For God's love to cease, God would have to cease, because God is love. God never ceases to be love and give love. Love, God's love, never weighs you down, oppresses you, burdens you. His yoke is easy , His burden is light. His yoke, is a love yoke.  His love never destroys you or tears you down. Even when He prunes you, He destroys what would weigh you down and destroy you. His love is edifying and encouraging. God's love will never render you ineffective. It will render the works of darkness ineffective in your life. If you are walking in darkness, it may convict you. If you are walking after the flesh you open the door for the devil to condemn you. God never vanishes away. His love never vanishes away. For HE hath said, I will never leave thee,  nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5 We have been conditioned by the lack of love in every circumstance in our life. We have been preconditioned to accept love.  We have been preconditioned to even reject love. Jesus came to defy the conditions. My race: a condition, my gender: a condition, my economic status: a condition, my education: a condition, my city, state and nation: a condition. Jesus does defy the conditions. In defiance of the conditions, He is willing and able to deliver us from all our fears. Because fear prevents us from loving and being loved. Perfect love cast out all fear. 1 John 4:18 Fear causes us to fail. We are conditioned to fail at love. If we fail at love, we fail at everything. Love helps us to succeed, even when we don't possess the natural or acquired ability. The greatest gift of all the gifts is love. If you have enough love, you can attain any gift, because every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from the Father of lights in whom there is no variableness or shadow of turning. James 1:17 All the gifts (good and perfect) are resident in Him. And though the gifts may fail, because the gifts and calling of God are without repentance; Romans 11:29, prophecies will fail  and tongues will fail, but love never fails.  1 Corinthians 13:8 Love always has a 4.0 GPA. Love always graduates summa cum laude. Love always has a full bank account. Any withdrawal from a love account, only tends  to multiplication. In the United States we call dollars, legal tender. In heaven, love is the legal tender, because anything done void of love is illegal. Anything void of God is illegal. Love's stocks are on a perpetual ascension, it is impossible for them  decline. Love never has a famine or experiences a drought. Love's barns are always full of plenty and it's press bursting out with new wine, of more love. Love never aborts it's mission or miscarries it's vision. Jesus never aborted His mission or miscarried His vision. He declared it before Pontius Pilate. He carried it to the whipping post, the cross, the grave and to the right hand of the Majesty on High.  You are HIS mission. You are HIS vision. He carried you to the whipping post, the cross, the grave and now you are seated in heavenly places with HIM, on the right hand of the Majesty on High. Hebrews 1:3, Romans 8:34 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height , nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38, 39 Love never fails. HE will never fail you!!!
The bride of Christ is bone of Jesus bone, and flesh of Jesus flesh; but we don't want to get pregnant. We don't want to lose our shape. The shape of our ministry may have to change. We don't want stretch marks. He may have to stretch our prayer life.  Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear, break forth into singing  and cry aloud, thou that did not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate than the children of the married wife, saith the Lord. Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thy habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strenghten thy stakes. Isaiah 54 :1, 2  We will have to change our diet. There are some things we need to start eating and some things we need to eliminate from our diet. We have to stop eating from the Babylonian smorgasbord. Ye cannot drink  of the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be  partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. 1 Corinthians 10:21 We must stop eating spiritual fast food. Nazarites could not eat or drink what everyone else ate or  drank. Now therefore, beware , I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink,   But he said unto  me, Behold,  thou shalt conceive : and bear a son; now  drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from his birth to the day of his death. Judges 13:4, 7 We have consumed error, apostasy and hypocrisy. Our spiritual diet has been ridden with a lukewarm, homogenized, pasteurized diet of leavened stale bread that has twenty-five ingredients to increase it's shelf life. . .Know ye not that a little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump. Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. for even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness:but with the bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:6-8 If your preaching is for shelf life, God will put it on the shelf and if you don't repent, you will be on the shelf too.  We don't want pregnancy, because we don't want to regurgitate all the junk we have eaten in the past that doesn't nourish the Son of God inside of us. We don't want to be delivered from our religion, status, legalism and programs not to mention the other demons. Religion pertains to habit and routine that are not led by the Holy Spirit.  A pregnancy changes your routine. A baby changes your routine. A baby changes your status. Are you satisfied with the status quo?  We don't want to mother anybody. Mothering, motherhood means waking up earlier so I can feed you as well as myself. Mothering means I can love you and simultaneously smell the poop in your diaper. Motherhood means I can love you and change your diaper fifty times a day, and each time make you smell good. We don't want to disciple anyone: it's too much like motherhood. So, we don't want to be pregnant. We don't anyone crying on our shoulders, calling us at 2:00 am because they are in trouble. We don't want to be pregnant, because we don't want to travail. We want a Cesarean birth, a C-section. All the sons of God are born through natural birth. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth together in pain until now. Romans 8:19,  22 The majority of us in the western world don't even know what it is to travail. Many of us have lost the ability to travail. That is why we have so many things not coming full term in the body of Christ. Our other problem is that we want intimacy, without pregnancy and pregnancy without intimacy. Some of us don't know what intimacy is yet. Yes, there are various levels of intimacy.  Some of us want babies, but we want a surrogate mother. I can't push for you. I can push  with you . I can teach you how to push. In the final analysis, the birth of your baby, your disciples, your ministry, your destiny is dependent on your push.  There is a vacuum  of spiritual midwives in the body of Christ, we need more of them.  A midwife is to assist us in birthing, she cannot birth for us.  When you get pregnant, your external appearance changes, because your internal appearance  is changing.  Verily, verily I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die it bringeth forth much fruit. John 12:24 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so  shall ye be my disciples.  John 15:8 The travail and the push for the final manifestation of the sons of God is upon us now. If you have been too concerned with man's opinions or your own opinions, you can repent now, there are no guarantees for later.  If you are pregnant, make sure your son is getting the proper nourishment. Only the bride of Christ can give birth to the sons of God. The bridegroom has no intimacy with harlots.

   THE BABYLONIAN HARLOT

Who is the Babylonian harlot? What city reigns over the kings of the earth, New York City where the United Nations is located; this is mystery Babylon. And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of ever foul spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Revelation 18:2, 3  Fallen is the word "pipto" in the Greek, it means: to descend from a higher place to a lower place, to fall (either form or upon), to be thrust down; to fall under judgment, came under condemnation, , to descend from an erect to a prostrate position, to fall down, to be prostrated, fall prostrate, of those overcome by terror or astonishment or grief or under attack of an evil spirit or of falling dead suddenly; to fall out, fall from i.e. shall perish or be lost; to fall down, fall into ruin: of buildings, walls, etc; to be cast down from  a state of propserity, to fall from a state of uprightness; to perish, i.e. come to an end, disappear, cease; of virtues, to lose authority, no longer have force ( of sayings, of precepts, etc.) to be removed from power by death. This is an apt description of what will happen to the United States of America and New York city in particular. It will fall under judgment; the skyscrapers which once stood erect will be flattened. The population will be astonished and grief stricken from a terror attack where many die instantly. Nuclear fallout will literally kill millions and numerous buildings will be decimated. America will lose its status of prosperity, authority and power. None of the  precepts  or laws of the United States will be respected.  Babylon is tantamount to Babel: a multitude of tongues, languages and peoples; New York, the world melting pot. Every type of demon, foul spirit and unclean and hurtful bird is housed there. All nations have been intoxicated by and in bed with her. They are drunk with her fame,  her wealth,  her power and her desire for it. they are intimately acquainted with her insatiable desire for wealth, fame and power. She is ground zero for the merchants of the earth; here everything is for sale, everything has a price. She, Babylon, has glorified herself, God did not glorify her.  And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. Matthew 23:12 The world leaders and businessmen shall weep and lament over her for the absence of her merchandise: gold, silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, ivory, precious wood, brass, iron and marble, cinnamon, odors, ointments, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour, wheat, beasts, sheep, horses, chariots, slaves and souls of men.  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich with the abundance of her delicacies. Revelation 18:3 She is eager to exercise her wanton desire, her lust for what pleases her. She eagerly anticipates giving birth to her lust.  The kings of the earth have intimate knowledge of her secret parts and she has knowledge of the intimate parts of the nations. but neither of them have a commitment to each other. They have no intimacy, only  mutual nakedness. It is a city of demonic alliances and confederacies.  This is a market place which runs the gamut from gold to souls, both are bartered and traded with extensively, some overtly and some covertly.  All the leaders of the world have made covenants with her. All the nations have been intoxicated by the fruit of her fornication: war and bloodshed.  The wine of the wrath of her fornication, wine is the blood, wrath is the war launched through negotiation, mediation, arbitration and fornication: her illicit behavior  with all the demons of the nations. This knowledge is perpetuated to manipulate, control and satisfy the desires of the beast and the false prophet. Yes, covenants are made , but only to destroy the poor, the weak, the vulnerable and the righteous. Covenants are made between billionaires, bankers, media moguls, corporations, families, politicians, and satanists, just to name a few. These "kings" control food production and distribution, water resources,  oil production, oil distribution and pricing, educational and medical resources, housing, information gathering and dissemination, religious groups and religious leaders. In their kingdom, they buy and sell souls, governmental and political positions, religious seats and financial rankings. This is a motley crew of those who are in league with the Babylonian harlot. It is only to appease their mutual lust for power, fame and fortune.  It is always, lust and not love at the core of the Babylonian harlot's actions.  A harlot is ruled by lust, not love.  Why does the Holy Spirit refer to it as "wine of the wrath"? Her fornication has the same  effect as wine: it changes your speech,  your eyesight or outlook, your walk and the way you smell.  She has the odor of the blood of innocent people on her garments.  You cannot be intimate with her modus operandi and remain naive. You must make a decision to emulate her or the antithesis of who she is and represents. You cannot operate from a nucleus of love and lust concurrently. Those who were made rich in Babylon and have a large segment of their investments there shall bewail her lost as their investment disintegrates into thin air.  Mariners from across the globe will mourn over the lost of one of the largest ports in the USA,  and a great loss of riches and income. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, for no man buyeth her merchandise any more. Revelation 18:11  The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing. And saying, alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off. And cried when they saw  the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!  And they cast dust on their heads and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas,  that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour she is made desolate!  Revelation 18:15-19

CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS

   IT'S UNCONDITIONAL

  PERFECT LOVE II

Perfect love, unconditional love and love that never fails are subjects that could fill all the websites on the internet, all the books, ever written, all the poems ever scribed, all the short stories ever written with room left for more.  Perfect  love is a perfect exegesis of all the  best sermons of Charles Spurgeon, T.D. Jakes, Bill Winston, Tony Evans, Rod Parsley, John Hagee, Jackie McCullough, Susie Owens, Reinhard Bonnke, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Charles Blake and Benjamin Idahosa comprised into one. Perfect love is a divine lyric written by Andre' Crouch and Terry MacAlmon sung by Larnelle Harris, Marvin Sapp, Dorinda Clark, Sandi Patti, Misty Edwards, Jason Upton, Donnie McClurkin, Whitley Phipps, Sarah Jordan Powell, Rachel Hayler, Freddy Hayler, Tramaine Hawkins, Russ Taft, Wes Morgan,  Kimberly Rivera and Fred Hammond in perfect harmony, with philharmonic orchestration by Paul Wilbur in a opera house in heaven, only better.  Perfect love is all the miracles signs and wonders of Maria Woodworth-Etter, Aimee Semple McPherson, Smith Wigglesworth, William Branham, John G. Lake, Jack Coe, T.L. Osborn, A. A. Allen, R.W. Shambach, Oral Roberts, Lester Sumrall, Ruth Heflin and Kathryn Kuhlman, only more miraculous and wondrous.  Perfect love is all the revelations of Watchman Nee, Apostle Paul, James Maloney, Gwen Shaw, Yongii Cho, Rick Joyner, Chuck Pierce, Mahesh Chavda, Charles Parham and Willian Seymour only 7x7x7, pressed down, shaken together, exceeding abundantly more. Perfect love is all the joy from an impartation from Rodney Howard Brown and Georgian Banov, only more unspeakable and full of more glory.  Perfect love is more than I or anyone else could pen or describe. Of course it is much more than a note, a rhythm, a tune, a lyric, an instrument or a voice: or the compilation of all perfect notes, rhythms, tunes, lyrics, instuments and voices. It is more fragrant than the world's most fragrant perfume, in it's purest form.  This fragrance will never wear off. It is more beautiful than the loveliest bouquet of flawless flowers. That is why Jesus is called the rose of Sharon, only HE is more fragrant and beautiful than any rose or lily. He is the love bouquet to the bride of Christ. A petal never fades or falls off. It is what all the flowers in heaven sing about. Actually, it is He whom all the flowers in heaven sing about. They sing to HIM, they sing about HIS perfect love. Perfect love is greater than the most beautiful painting with exceptional detail, pristine color and refined brushstrokes painted by Monet, Rembrandt, Davinci or Michangelo. Perfect love is better than a wedding, a 365 day honeymoon, 3,650 romantic getaways in your own private villa on your own private island, with the mate of the perfect shape and size, who fits you perfectly: spiritually and emotionally. Perfect love is better than every affectionate kiss and every romantic kiss. Perfect love has to be better than life, if His lovingkindness is better than life, and it is. Perfect love is better than and more than anyone can fathom.  One day being perfectly loved or loved perfectly is like a thousand years, it destroys the limitations of time. A thousand years is like one day, because once you've known it, nothing else satisfies and no one else satisfies or matters.
There are different states of consciousness and varying degrees in each one of these states.  Christ consciousness is a conscious awareness and focus on Jesus Christ, his will his ways and adherence to them. Self-consciousness,  a conscious awareness and focus on flesh or self, this is more inclusive than just the body; it entails the psyche and concerns about  other people's opinions and  feelings toward you. It causes you to behave according tothe precepts of pleasing self and making flesh feel comfortable in a motley of situations. This may entail compromise of what makes you peaceful and joyful to "fit in". Pride has self at the center, and is essentially a worship of self.  A self conscious person may not be prideful, but a prideful person is always self conscious, the focus is on "self". Body consciousness, a conscious awaraeness and focus  on the needs, desires and impulses of the body, consant catering to these needs above everything else or everyone else; the  obsession with  gaining and maintaining the perfect shape,  perfect hair, perfect health, perfect skin and perfect body.  body consciousness entails any obsession for food, exercise and plastic surgery. Anorexia, bulimia and the pervasiveness of unnecessary plastic surgeries stem from body consciousness.  When Peter told Jesus don't go to the cross,  he became body conscious. In a few minutes he went from Christ consciousness to body consciousness Matthew 16:16-23  Money consciousness, a conscious awareness and focus on the need for money, wealth and financial prosperity at the expense of your joy, your peace, your health, good and godly relationships your integrity, self-esteem and good name.  Mammon becomes your God when money is on the throne. Tithing is one avenue of keeping mammon off the throne of yur heart. Jesus said: No one can serve two masters:for he will either hate the one and love the other, or he will cleave to the one and despise the other.  You cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24 When money and financial profit dictate your morals, atitudes, motives and resposes  mammon is on the throne.  Paul says, for the love of money is the root of all evil, which while some  coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10 Jesus knows where the treasures of darkness are located and the hidden riches of secret places. Isaiah 45:3  He also knows how to transfer them to you. He will reveal to us when, where,  and how to make, spend, save, invest and give money.  Merriam Webster defines consciousness as the condition of being conscious; the normal state fo being awake and able to understand what is happening around you, a person's mind and thoughts: 1. a. the quality  or state of being aware, especially of something within oneself. b. the state or fact of conscious of an external object, state or fact. c. awareness; especially concern for some social or political cause.  2. the state  of being characterized by sensation, emotion, volition, and thought: the mind. 3. the totality of conscious states of an individual. 4. the normal state of conscious life. and 5. the upper level of mental life of which the person is aware as contrasted with unconscious processes. There are many "Christ" in the world; I am referring to Jesus the Christ when I mention Christ consciousness. Christ Jesus must always be the focus. When we focus on HIM, he will make us aware of his needs, his thoughts, his emotions and his will. He will make us aware of what we need for our self and provide it.   He will alert us to the needs of our body. The answer to body consciousness is yes,  your body is a temple: it is the temple of the living God. 1 Corinthians 6:19 Therefore the riches and substance in the temple are more vital than the temple. We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians  4:7 For you are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1 Corinthians 6:20  The treasure is inside the vessel. The same one who made the treasure, made the vessel.  All of us have been made in the image and likeness of God. Genesis 1:26,27  Yet only through "Christ" consciousness can we know, develop and perfect that image.  Adam and Eve lost that consciousness  when they lost the glory.  Here we are confronted with   "Christ" in us the hope of glory. To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery ; among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Colossians 1:27 The biggest competitor  against "Christ in us" is self.  Galatians 5:17 You are born with self and die with self.  At three years old most psychologists agree that  our self image  is established or the foundation for it.  Most of the choices we make are in line with our self image or a false self image that we want to project. Paul expounded on his own self image in Philippians 3:3-9.  For we are the circumcision, which worship God in  the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus and have no confidence in the flesh. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh, if any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more. Circumcised the eighth day, of  the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were counted gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea, doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the  knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I  may win Christ. And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith , the righteousness which is of God by faith. He also expounded on the self image of Jesus Christ: Who being in the form of God thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.  Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. Philippians 2:6-9  Jesus Christ nailed body consciousness to the cross when he allowed his body to be nailed to the cross; in spite of the pain, agony, suffering, and mutilation of his body. Jesus nailed self-consciousness to the cross: when he allowed "self" as a Jew, a law abiding citizen, an obedient son, a twelve year old who astounded the doctors of the law, the man who defeated Satan in the wilderness on a forty day fast, turned water into wine and the man who raised Lazarus from the dead to be nailed and die on the cross.   Jesus crowned self consciousness, body consciousness and money consciousness with a crown of thorns. The implication is that the only consciousness that remains is Christ consciousness. How did Jesus nail mammon to the cross? I pondered this same question. Jesus knew who Judas was, the son of perdition, when he chose him as a disciple to be treasurer. He knew Judas would betray him over thirty pieces of silver, thirty pieces for the first thirty years of his life, yet he permitted him to proceed in the betrayal. Jesus said it is hard for those who trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God. Mark 10:23, 24 Judas is proof of that. Jesus was warring against mammon during his entire public ministry, but at the cross he nailed it. Thirty pieces of silver that mammon thought would constitute the demise of Jesus Christ was the stepping stone to his glory. All nations would know HE is the Christ by his death, burial and resurrection. Mammon was defeated, even though it tried to raise  it's ugly head by paying soldiers to lie about what happened to his body  Matthew 28:11,12 Now we have a paradox, "Christ" nailed Christ consciousness to the cross. Previously, I stated that there are many Christs: Buddha, Krishna, and Muhammad just to name a few. Jesus nailed not only them as Christ to the cross, but the Jewish perception of Christ. The Jews  saw Christ as an Abraham, Moses or Elijah. Jewish expectation was a Christ who would deliver them from Roman occupation like Moses; or a prophet like Elijah who would call fire down from heaven on their enemies. He was the living, breathing, oracle, the author and finisher of the faith. Hebrews 12:2  The Red Sea was at the cross, He was their deliverer. On the day of Pentecost, he did release fire fire from heaven on their spiritual enemies.  Christ consciousness-Christ worship, thus Christ is on the throne. Self consciousness-self worship, thus self or flesh is on the throne, Body consciousness-body worship, thus the body or the physical is on the throne and money consciousness- money worship, mammon is on the throne.  Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus Christ, is the Christ, was the Christ and will always be the Christ. Our consciousness must dwell on HIM.
Until HE becomes your beloved, it is just religion. When you get married in the natural, it is your husband or else you are not married. Meditate on that for a moment. There is no polygamy in the kingdom of God.  Jesus Christ only has one bride. It is all personal. It is so personal, that HE calls us His bride, bone of His bone, flesh of His flesh. The bridal chamber is a place for intimacy. The bridal chamber is a place for the Bride. If you are not intimate with the bridegroom, you will never find it. Religion can't enter, tradition can't enter, and demons can't enter. Only the bridegroom and the bride can enter the bridal chamber. It's a love chamber. It's an unconditional love chamber. The walls exude unconditional love, unconditional love emanates from the floor, the divan is carved from unconditional love, the drapes are woven from unconditional love. Everything in the bridal chamber consists of love. If you took the bridal chamber and examined it from every angle: you would see love, feel love, smell love and taste love.  Yes, love has a taste and a smell. What does He smell emanating from you? What does He taste when He tastes you?  What does He feel, when He feels you? What does He see, when  He looks at you? When was the last time He tasted your love?  When was the last time He felt your love, after all you are the bride. After all, you are HIS bride.  Is love your favorite perfume?  It   is His fragrance of choice. Even the walls of the bridal chamber are made of His unconditional love. The glory of God radiates from the walls of the bridal chamber. Is there anything more glorious than love? Is there anything as glorious as HIS unconditional love? The mercy seat is the most expensive seat in the universe, a priceless seat, according to another minister and I agree. The most expensive room in the universe is the bridal chamber of the Bride of Christ. It is the most extravagant room in the Father's house. All of the glories, none of the riches of the other rooms are to be compared to this room. God, the Father, paid with His own blood so Jesus could have a bride. The greatest dowry in this world, or the world to come was paid for the bride of Christ. When He gave us His son, it was a package deal. He who spared not his own Son how much more shall not He not with Him freely give us all things. Romans 8:32  This is an arranged marriage. It was arranged before the foundation of the world. God elected you before the the foundation of the world to receive His unconditional love.The Father's house, is a love house. John 14:2, 3 The proof that it is a house of unconditional love is in John 15:9; "As the Father hath loved me, I also have loved you; abide in my love. Oh what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God. 1 John 3:1 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His son to be the propititation for our sins. 1 John 4:10  In this we perceive the conditions for the unconditional love of God. Yes, God's unconditional love has conditions. The love He shows to us and those who are still sinners is through the propitiation of Jesus Christ. But God commendeth His love toward us while we were yet sinners Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 For those of us who are already  married to Him; unconditional love, deserves an unconditional yes. We love Him, because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19  How did and how does He love us? Unconditionally! Take some time to show Him your love regardless of the conditions.  Remove all the prerequisites of showing Him the full measure of your love. Obliterate all the excuses. Destroy all the stumblingblocks.  Detonate all the distractions. Let Him see, smell, taste and touch the love He first loved you for.  Love on HIM!   

  PERFECT LOVE III

WHOSE BRIDE ARE YOU?

In a previous blog, I concluded with Jesus being in hot pursuit of His bride. What man do you know would be stripped naked, die on a cross after his flesh was ripped from his bones( because he loves you?). That is why the first  work of the flesh  is adultery. Galatians 5:19-21 His greatest concern is His love for us, and our love for Him. Yes, He loves all of us. All of us are not in a position to receive His love. Questions? Is an adulterous woman, engaged in  physical intimacy with another man in a position to receive love from her husband? She can come home and fake it , like so many in the church, but you can't be intimate with the flesh and the Spirit, Christ, and Belial simultaneously.  James 4:4 and 2 Corinthians 6:15 We cannot serve God and mammon. Who you love, you worship, the two are intrinsically linked, tied together, like the helix of DNA. Worship is the love litmus test. Every test is a love test. Who do you love? Who do you love more? What do you love? What do you love more? What are the conditions of your love? You see, even the Father has conditions on His unconditional love. His conditions are the sacrifice of the blood of Jesus and the name of Jesus. By Jesus meeting and surpassing all the conditions of the Father we have access to the unconditional love of  God the Father. The only conditions of our love should be: God said it, the Holy Spirit is leading me to do it. We need to  and must attain an unconditional " yes" to Him. Obedience is the highest form of worship. Every time we say yes, we become more intimate with Him. When we engage is disobedience, we are breaking our engagement with Jesus, and betrothing ourselves to the man of Sin. What authority does the man of sin have over the church? He has no authority. Don't be found guilty of going down to the man of Sin's house. No matter our trials, our tests, our tribulations, our persecutions, our afflictions, it is always a spiral down.

Our beloved is worth the wait. He is worth our time. He is worth our love. He is worth our affection. He is worth our worship. He is worth our faithfulness. He is worth our preparation. He is worth our attention. He is worth our gaze. He is worth our praise! He is our worth. He's wise! He's handsome! HE'S HOLY! He's sensitive! He's kind! He's marvelous! He's wonderful! He's glorious! He's faithful! He's generous! He's loving! He's sweet! He's affectionate! He's our beloved! HE'S MY BELOVED!!! 
God, the Father, does not want us to experience a culture shock when we get to heaven. He wants us to experience the maximum amount of His love possible while we are in the human body. That is one reason he tells us to love even our enemies.  No wonder no one wants to come back from heaven. Would you want to leave an atmosphere of perfect love?  I didn't mention everything, but the sum total of all our best accomplishments are not to be compared with His perfect love. That is why the suffering of this time is not to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed in us. What is more glorious than love? What is more healing than love? Why did He say, through John, God is love. 1 John 4:8 Is anyone more glorious than Him? Is anyone  more powerful than love? Is anyone more powerful than Him? There is so much more I could say about perfect love, but it would not be perfect.  There is so much I could sing about perfect love, but the lyrics and  notes would never measure up. I could attempt to paint a picture of perfect love, but all I have are imperfect colors and imperfect brushes on a flawed canvas. God does not want us to be shocked when we get to heaven. Yes, He does want us to be awed, but His love should not be foreign to us. We are not strangers and foreigners. His love should not be alien to us. We are not aliens, if we are part of the commonwealth of Israel and the household of faith. Ephesians 2:12  We are the love ambassadors from our Father's kingdom, sent to the kingdoms of this world.  We are the love missionaries, sent on a mission to manifest the love of Jesus Christ, our bridegroom. We are kings and priests from our Father's kingdom. 1 Peter 2:9 We rule and reign in love. We offer love sacrifices to Him for the people. A love sacrifice is the only sacrifice acceptable on His altar. Justice and judgment are the habitation of His throne; but love is the habitation of His heart. Psalm 89:14  We are the love temple; the true tabernacle that the Lord hath pitched, not made by hands, the church of Philadelphia. Hebrews 8:2, Revelation 3:7 We are the city whose builder and maker is God: the new Jerusalem. Revelation 21:2 We are His offspring, an offspring of love: love begets love. Acts 17:28 We are the repairers of the breach and the restorers of paths to dwell in. Isaiah 58:12 We repair any place His love has been breached in someone's life.  We restore the straight and narrow path of walking in love.  We cannot walk in a love we do not know.  The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.  2 Timothy 2:6  We must know His love, to give His love. His love is perfect.

 ILLUMINATED or ILLUMINATI

The first battle noted in scripture between the illuminated, the sons of God and the sons of Satan is in Genesis 14. Abram engaged the  kings of Sodom, Gomorrah, Elam and all those in  this alliance in battle. After his victory, Melchizedek, king of Salem brought Abram bread and wine.  Notice that these were all kings who went to battle. Abram is the illuminated one in this instance. These kings represent the illuminati or ambassadors of the kingdom of darkness. Abram doesn't have the title of "King" , but he is a king and priest of the most high God. Abram is met by King of Salem, Melchisedek, with bread and wine as a sign of of his communion with the most high God. Then Abram gives Melchizedek, a tithe of everything as an indication of his covenant with him. This covenant is initiated by Melchizedek with bread and wine, reciprocated by the tithes and established through an offering of a heifer, she goat, a ram , a turtledove and a young pigeon. And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan. Genesis 14:14  And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people. And the kings of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale. And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God,  And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth. And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.  And he gave him tithes of all. Genesis 14:16-20  Notice what the king of Sodom says in Genesis 14:21, And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the  persons, and take the goods to thyself.  The illuminati is interested in the souls of the people as their possessions, the material wealth is secondary. If they can control the souls of the people, the material wealth is a given.  Abram's response to this offer solidifies his authority over the king of Sodom and also Abram's covenant with Melchizedek.  Immediately after a great victory the devil comes to steal it.  And Abram said to the King of Sodom, I have lift up my hand unto the Lord, the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth. That I will not  take from a thread to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take anything that is thine
lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: Genesis 14: 22, 23 Abram escapes compromise and defeats the illuminati at their own game. Buying and selling souls is the "A" game of the illuminati.  In contrast saving souls, is the prime focus of the illuminated, the sons of God; like Abram who was exemplary in saving Lot. Years later we see that Lot is living in Sodom and this time, he is rescued by two angels. Genesis 19 The lesson is the costliness of backsliding effects you, your family and generations. Lot is a type of the Christian, who has been illuminated enough for salvation, but never stops living like the masses.  Abraham is the antithesis of Lot.  The next son of God, we will examine is Moses. Moses' parents even discerned that he was more illuminated than the average baby.  Hebrews 11;23  Moses has a very unique story, he was parented, educated and trained by the illuminati.  Imagine when the moment of illumination came when Moses was in the house of the illuminati. He was still enjoying all the benefits of the social and economic status of the illuminati.  The common train of thought is that Moses'  act of murder was capricious.  My personal perspective is that Moses was displeased with the status quo and he had a protracted sense of justice and judgment which manifested on this day. The difference between Joseph and Moses who were both influenced by the illuminati during their life is: Joseph  was sold as a slave to the illuminati and became a prisoner under their dominion. Moses in contrast lived the formative years of his life as a member of the illuminati. He knew all the intricacies of the house of Pharoah.  Moses was a very strong willed person. This is an observation, not a criticisim. He had to be strong willed to make the decision to leave Pharoah's house. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharoah's daughter. Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. Hebrews 11:24, 25  Moses defies all the odds and stereotypes. He survives a time of great genocide in Israeli history.  The illuminati: the magicians, wizards, star gazers and prognisticators always decree mass abortion whenever a Savior is deemed to be born. Moses is mentored by the Egyptians, not any Egyptian, he goes all the way to the top. He is mothered by Pharoah's daughter, the upper echelon of the illuminati, the royal family. Having full knowledge of the benefits and perks of being the grandson of Pharoah, Moses consciously decided to say, no. Again, this is not typical behavior for the illuminati.  Remember, Moses was part of the illuminati, because he was trained and lived in their household as a heir to the throne. God however is viewing Moses as the illuminated, the son of God yet to be revealed in his generation.  Therefore, Moses defeats the odds because he is able to endure a life of indoctrination by the illuminati and emerge illuminated. From the life of Moses we ascertain some attributes of the illuminati: 1.  These are World Rulers, 2. Entire Families or Bloodlines are members, 3. They are Wicked People and 4. They are Rich and Wealthy People.  So Moses conquers all the odds against him except one. He did not enter the promised land. Moses was barred from the promised land because, he did not reverence God before the people. When he became angry all those demons he had been delivered from in the wilderness rushed back into his life. At that juncture, he adopted the attitude of a King, like the illuminati, not a King and servant like the illuminated, sons of God.  Remember Moses had observed the wrath of Pharoah even  prior to his decision to forsake Egypt. Hebrews 11:27  The same wrath his parents decried, and he defeated marred his behavior in the end. Since, Moses was the Messiah of his age and the people of Israel were also familiar with the wrath of  Pharoah; God could not allow to go into the promised land. God did not want any familiar spirits from slavery entering into the land of promise. Moses was setting a precedent for all  future leaders of Israel. The spirit on Moses would flow down to the entire population. God could not permit the same spirit ruling the illuminati, to rule his people. There are a myriad of things we can learn about the illuminati by studying the life of Moses. One of the most intriguing is that God chose him to institute the Passover. Blood sacrifices and bloodlines were crucial  and remain crucial to the illuminati.  A blood sacrifice and  a bloodline was vital for the illuminated: the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matthew 26;28  Moses was the perfect candidate to  to institute the Passover because he had already learned the power of blood sacrifices and bloodlines from the illuminati. When he was fully illuminated, this knowledge worked for his good. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 God, the Father, uses all the powers of the illuminati against  them internally, but the significance of the death of the  first born cannot be underestimated.  Can you imagine  if God wiped out all the witches, warlocks, stargazers, necromancers for a generation? In effect, that is what God did in wiping out the first born of Egypt. The heirs of an entire generation of demonic power and wealth were killed. Egypt would never be the same.  When Moses instituted the Passover, the first born of  Egypt was destroyed. When Jesus the first born  instituted the Passover, he was killed and Satan thought he had obtained vengeance from the first Passover. Satan, however was wrong. It was only a temporary victory.  The illuminated Jesus Christ, the first born among many brethren completed the job Moses started at the first Passover. Jesus Christ is the Messiah and the Passover lamb. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messiah cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come he will tell us all things. Jesus said unto her, I that speak unto thee am He. John 4:25, 26  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 1 Peter 1:18, 19 Stay tuned for Part II.

THE FIRST BRIDE

PERILOUS TIMES

 THE FIRST BRIDE III

THE FIRST BRIDE II

In retrospect we examined the inception of the antichrist, humanism, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life, the first act of spiritual adultery and the first manifestation of the law of sin and death. We discovered that humanism is anti-love and antichrist. Anything that is anti-love is in opposition to the body of Christ.  For no man ever yet hateth His own flesh, but nourisheth and cheriseth it. even as the Lord the church. Ephesians 5:29 After all, she is bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. Ephesians 5:30   As I stated the entire gospel could be preached from the experience of the first bride, Eve. One of the first things I noticed, is that Adam was absent or Eve was distant.  Eve was distant or absent from her husband when she succumbed to temptation.  Jesus is never absent or distant from us.  We distance ourselves from Him. We go (AWOL), absent without leave from him. Let your conversation be without covetousness ; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee or forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5 For in that He himself suffered  being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.  Hebrews 2:18 Succour in the Greek means to aid or relieve: boetheo (bo-ay-theh-o). The greater the distance between us, the greater our vulnerability is to temptation. Who are we in the presence of, if we are absent from Him?  For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your poets have said, For we are also His offspring. Acts 17:28  What can we accomplish without Him? What do we want to accomplish "divorced" from Him? We need our intimacy restored. If you've never been intimate with Jesus before, try it you'll like it and love Him. The first Adam, and Eve the first bride, lost their intimacy.  That is why they covered themselves with fig leaves. Any covering other than the blood of Jesus, the righteousness of God, or  the glory of God are fig leaves.  It doesn't cover us, it's a facade. If our heart is not engaged to the heart of God, our good works became all leaves with no fruit.  Jesus cursed the fig tree that bore no fruit. Matthew 21:18, 19 & Mark 11:12-14  Herein is my Father glorified that ye bear much fruit so shall ye be my disciples. John 15:8  Abide in me and I in you.  As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:4  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I kept my Father's commandments, and abide in His love. John 15:10  The core characteristic of the fruit of the Spirit is love. Galatians 5:22  If there is no fruit, maybe there is no flow of the spirit.  We have a 21st nomenclature that denotes "worship", but there is no worship; it denotes "Word" but there is little truth in it; it denotes the "Holy" Spirit but void of holiness.  All of this in summation are fig leaves. Many are present at service but we are actually absent: our mind is absent and our emotions are absent. Some of us go to prayer, but there is no prayer in us, unless we are going to receive an impartation, this is just fig leaves.  I am convinced that is one reason the church is so exposed to the subtilty of Satan.  That is why there is distance between many of us and Him.  The bride of Christ is ordained to be a house of prayer.  He said: My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations. Matthew 21:13 & Mark 11:17  No one will dine at the marriage supper of the Lamb wearing fig leaves. The bridegroom has chosen a white linen garment for His bride, any other garment is fig leaves.  Many people in the body of Christ are wearing strange apparel. This is a depiction of the Laodicean church: naked and in need of white garments, lacking discernment, blind to what is good and what is evil.  Revelation 3:17, 18 


This is the state of the majority of the church in the western world. There is a remnant left that has heard His voice and they will sup with Him clothed in white garments. Yes, God slew an animal to cover Adam and Eve. He slew Jesus to cover us.  So our bridegroom, our husband, the Lord Jesus Christ is also our covering.  Let Him cover you. He is in hot pursuit of His church.  He is in hot pursuit of His bride, His beloved. He's wooing! He's pursuing you!!!
In the first lesson we see that Eve did not use her spiritual discernment. but ye have an uction form the Holy One and know all things. I have not written to you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 1 John 2:20, 21 From the life of the first bride we can preach the entire gospel. All that is in the world is the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. 1 John 2:16, 17  When the woman saw it was good for food: the lust of the flesh, pleasant to the eyes, the lust of the eyes and desirable to make one wise the pride of life, she consumed it. Of course, in this case, it was a female but the warning is not gender specific. It is for the bride of Christ. As long as she was engaged in the will of God, there was no limit on her life. Not only did she die physically  years later, but the moment she ate the fruit she tasted death. When she tasted death, she became subject to the law of sin and death. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:2  She was not subject to the law of sin and death prior to her sin.  She was a citizen of another kingdom.  That is why Jesus had to liberate us from the law of sin and death so we could have relationship, fellowship, communion and intimacy with Him. Jesus could not have a carnal minded bride. for to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:5, 6 God gave Eve  only one, "Thou Shalt Not" and she violated it. God has also given us one, " Thou Shalt Not", actually, don't violate my love. Why is what happened to Eve so important ? In order to comprehend the end, we must understand the beginning; in order to identify the fruit, we must know the root(s). Eve was crowned mother of all living. Only someone with the authority over life, could introduce death into the earth. Adam and Eve were the anointed ones on the earth during their reign.  But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9 They were chosen to be Sons of God, a generation of gods.  Only God can produce gods. They were chosen to be royalty, God is the King of the Universe, kings only propagate kings. God is holy, and He created them in His image and in His likeness, therefore, they were holy.  Adam and Eve were heirs to the world. Now the bride of Christ, the seed of Abraham is heir to the world. Romans 4:13  We are a nation of holy kings adopted by the King of the Universe. If we are adopted, then how did we get  royal blood? We received a transfusion of the blood of the Father at the cross of Jesus Christ. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba Father. Romans 8:15 The spirit of adoption was not imputed to Adam and Eve.  They were not adopted. Adam received a direct impartation from God and became a living soul.  If the first bride sinned in the absence of the first Adam who was a living soul? What shall the fate be of the bride of Christ in the absence of the last Adam, the Lord Jesus Christ, who was made a quickening spirit?  1 Corinthians 15:45 That is why we need communion with Him.  It is impossible to have communion with Him, if you don't have fellowship with Him.  There are stages to this communion.  The relationship, fellowship, communion and intimacy with Him has a breadth, length, depth and height. We the bride have to decide what breadth, length, and height of love we want to experience. In Part I, I mentioned the inception of humanism as antichrist. Because God is love, humanism is  not only antichrist, but anti-love.  We cannot operate in humanism and  the anointing concurrently. To demonstrate the agape love the bridegroom has shown to the bride, we must forsake humanism. That is why I know the last outpouring of God's Spirit will be a love outpouring. The mantle of the last day is a love mantle. We have already experienced the faith mantle, faith movement, faith revival. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part shall be done away.  And now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:10,13 It is significant that Jesus is returning for a bride.  Who should love  any one more passionately than  a bride, her groom? Who should know anyone better than a bride knowing her groom, or the groom knowing his bride? He calls her His bride because a trillion years from now she is still beautiful to Him; His passion for her never wanes throughout the eons; He is faithful to her; never ceases to provide for her and always honors her.  Here she comes out of every tribe, nation, tongue, tongue and people: this woman of God, the church, bone of Jesus bone, flesh of Jesus flesh, who has given her best, who has given her all, who has given her love. . . . . ."Here Comes the Bride".
The fact there is a bride intimates there is  a groom.The first bride of course was Eve, the last bride is the church, the bride of Christ. The first bride was deceived. The last bride will escape the deception. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Peter 4:18  The elect is the elect lady, the bride of Christ. The first bride was enslaved through consumption of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. Genesis 2:17 The last bride was redeemed by the fruit from a tree called Calvary. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree.  Galatians 3:13 The first bride was led by her appetite. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. Genesis 3:6 Desired or desirable in the Hebrew is chamad- to delight in: desire, covet, pleasant, beauty, lust or delectable things. She coveted or lusted after a beautiful, pleasant or delectable thing. The last bride hungers and thirsts after righteousness. They that hunger and thirst after righteousness shall be filled. Matthew 5:6 Eve thought she would become wise. In this verse, wise means-sakal: to be circumspect and hence, intelligent; understand, wise and prosper. She already had wisdom, the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom: Psalm 111:10 her reverence for  God and knowing Him was all the wisdom she needed. For the Lord giveth wisdom out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6  Eve was deceived into thinking she lacked something she already possessed. The antichrist will come with the same tactics used in the garden, only this time the elect lady will escape his deception. In Genesis 3:5, Satan told the first bride: for God doth knowin the day that ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. They were already gods. Psalm 8:4-9 God the Father had created them in His image and His likeness. He gave them dominion over the fish  of the sea, over the foul of the air and over every creeping thing that creepeth on the earth. Genesis 1:26, 28 Eve had dominion over the serpent that Satan used to deceive her. In this case, she did not use her dominion. The church, the bride of Christ, also has dominion. Her dominion is over principalities, powers, the rulers of darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 The first bride gave her husband, the fruit of deception, the knowledge of good and evil. Eve and the first Adam knew that they were naked after they sinned. Prior to  sin they were not ashamed, because, where there is no sin, there is no shame.  For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23  Shame is the antithesis of glory. The first bride was clothed in glory before she and Adam sinned. After sin she manufactured her own righteousness: she sewed a fig leaf apron for herself. This is self-righteousness, righteousness she conceived by herself or her flesh, the first manifestation of humanism. The glory of humanity cannot compare to the glory of divinity. The righteousness of humanity can never compare to the righteousness of divinity. The problem is all of our righteousness is but filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6 She created a temporal solution to an eternal problem. Jesus Christ is our righteousness.  But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness and sanctification and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30 The bride of Christ, the church, will be adorned as a bride for her husband in fine white linen. Revelation 19:8 The fine white linen covers her and  in addition, indicates the righteousness she received from her bridegroom, the Lord Jesus Christ. The first bride's restitution is that her seed will bruise Satan's head.  Genesis 3:15 Also, in the last days a woman shall compass a man. Jeremiah 31:22 That man, is the man of sin, Satan. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 The victory Eve failed to obtain  in the beginning she will garner in the end. Lessons from the First Bride 1. Walk in Truth... don't listen to anyone or anything that opposes what God told you. 2. Reverence God...don't dwell on any temptation, guard your eargate and your eyegate. 3. Worship... guard your heart, because what you desire may produce death not life. 4. Stop...don't spread your sin. 5. Repent...don't invent a solution to cover your sin. 6. Run...to God, don't hide from Him. 7. Be Real...don't make excuses, tell God what "really" happened.


This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures, more than lovers of God. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 Perilous times are here. People's lives will be in constant peril. But what is peril? The Greek word for perilous, is chalepos or khalepos: 1. hard to do, to take, approach 2. hard to  bear, troublesome, dangerous A. harsh, fierce or savage. This is the same word used in describing the men in Matthew 8:28, who were demon possessed. This indicates that perilous times are times of gross, massive and fierce demnic possession.  This demonic possession will not be exclusive to the world, but rampant in the church. People's lives will be in constant peril, because many  will love themselves at the expense of everyone else. It is not a sin to love yourself, Jesus said:love your neighbor as you love yourself.  Matthew 22:39  In this time, narcissism will escalalte to endemic proportions, people are in love with the creaature more than the creator. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.  Who is blessed forever, Amen. Romans 1:25 The  "do me" motto is indicative of this time and this attitude.  You as an individual are worthless, contrasted with "I'm all that". Your life is expendable, your respect, your joy, your peace, your health, your money, your name, your reputation, even your destiny and your future. Your life will be in constant jeopardy, because I'm going to live my life at the expense of your life. This seems to be an apt description of the world, until you read  2 Timothy 3:5. This signifies that these are Christians. They have a form of godliness, they have the structure, but no substance. They possess the name, but no character.  They deny the power of the Holy Spirit to live as a Christian. If they deny the power of the Holy Spirit, which is the power of God, they will also deny you. This vacuum of power in the church will make it perilous for good people.  Paul admonishes Timothy to distance himself from these type of people. Consider these traits for a moment: lovers of their own selves,  covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded,  lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. Would Paul  ascribe sinners with the propensity to be lovers of God? Sinners are expected to love sin. Sinners are expected to love pleasure, what else do they have in this life?  Many of them expect greater pleasure in the life to come. When saints become lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, it is dangerous.  The proximity of these people to your life will make it perilous.  Perilous people, put your life in peril. Dangerous people, put your life in danger.  I believe Paul is saying to Timothy, don't develop close relationships with these people. If a robber steals from you, you can forgive and love them without allowing them into your inner circle. There are exceptions however, Onesimus in the book of Philemon. To preach the gospel and be effective, you need great discernment and wisdom during these times. Yes, you have always needed wisdom and discernment, but you need a greater measure of both during these times. As a rule, Paul exhorts us to separate ourselves from ungodly Christians.  The travesty, is that we must fellowship with Christians and during the  very time our fellowship is to increase in frequency, the church becomes a place of peril. Evil  men and seducers shall multiply in number and breadth, length, depth and height of seduction.  But many deceivers will be deceived themselves, by someone more demon possessed.  Be not deceived God is not mocked,  whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7 You must walk in integrity during these times. This will save you from much of the deception, that has been loosed on the earth. If there are any lies or deceptive things you did in the past, that you have not asked forgiveness for, do it now and ask God to  have mercy on you. If you have displayed any of the attributes denoted in 2 Timothy 3 and have not asked for forgiveness, do so now. Remember the antichrist is soon to be revealed and many will be deceived.  All of the minor deceptions are to prepare you for the major one.  A little leaven, leaveneth the whole lump, Galatians 5:9  It's the little foxes that destroy the tender grapes. Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines, for our vines have tender grapes. Song of Solomon 2:15 The truth does not change, though circumstances may  change. The ministry  or congregation that is best equipped to deal with these times are those flowing in the power of God. If you are in a place that seems to have the power of God, but does not have the love of God; it is not the power of the Holy Spirit.  Remember Satan will come with lying wonders (miracles and signs) in the last days.  In this epistle to Timothy, you are warned to turn away from those who deny the power of God. The best antidote for lack of power is to ask the Holy Spirit to pour out His power on you and in you. The church must return to it's full mandate in Luke 4:18. It must preach deliverance to the captives. Those who don't will become captives, themselves, because they deny the power of God.


CHRIST CONSCIOUSNESS II

In my conclusion of "Christ Consciousness" I established Jesus of Nazareth as the Christ. The Jewish perception of who Christ was and who "Christ" would be was alluded to in my final statements.  This is vital in understanding the sermon Peter preached on the day of Pentecost. Peter, James and John were the most Christ conscious of the twelve disciples.  The twelve disciples, with the exception of Judas, were more Christ conscious than the seventy. Luke 10:1,17 John 6:53,66 At the trial and crucifixion of Jesus only the women and John seemed to be Christ conscious. All the other disciples became self-conscious; they allowed their concern about their flesh to supercede their focus on Jesus Christ.  They still loved Jesus, but the reality of a Roman execution became paramount in their minds. On the day of Pentecost, Peter seemed to be the more Christ conscious of the disciples; he preached  and three thousand souls were saved.  In contrast to the time He denied the Lord Jesus, he was no longer concerned about what others thought. Apparently, a shift had occurred from the time Jesus asked him do you love me, to the day of Pentecost. peterr's perception of Christ and his kingdom had changed, it is obvious fro his sermon. That is whyPeter could preach to the Jews about Christ based on the Jewish mentality. Peter was well acquainted with the Jewish mentality and later became the Apostle to the Jews.  Years later, Peter veered off course, he ate with the Gentiles when no Jewish Christians were present, but when the Jewish saints came  he succumbed to peer pressure. He became self-conscious again.  Galatians 2:8-14 Apostle Peter is not my focus, he is only an example of how we must remain vigilant.  Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take lest he fall. 1 Corinthians 10:12 Even one of Paul's disciples, Demas (Colossians 4:14) is turned from Christ to self. In Colossians 4:14, it is evident he is still supporting Paul during Paul's imprisonment. Pauleven commends him as a fellowlaborer in Philemon, v.24. In 2 Timothy 4:10 Paul says Demas hath forsaken him. Paul was respected as the Apostle to the Gentiles: passionate, perceptive and strategic.  His mention of Demason three occasions alludes to the impression he made on Paul. I believe only the best could handle Paul's discipline and passion. Demas apparently was one of the best in his epoch. Demas lost his Christ-consciousness and embraced self-consciousness.  For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica, Crescens and Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. 2 Timothy 4:10 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world are the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he tht doeth the will of God abideth forever.  1 John 2:15-17 I know this was a great lesson for Paul, Jesus had Judas and Paul had Demas, the difference is Jesus knew he would lose the son of perdition. John 17:12 Demas was not the first man of great promise to lose his Christ consciousness. Adam lost his consciousness in the garden of Eden. Adam was the first  man on earth with Christ consciousness. He was the first type of Christ, the first Christ. He was the first man God the Father anointed who lived on the earth, the first son of God manifested on the earth, the first one made in the image and likeness of God to reign on the earth and over the earth. He was anointed with dominion, to be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth and subdue it. Genesis 1:26, 28 He also was anoined to know the purpose of a thing and name it according to it's purpose. Genesis 2:20 In addition, he had the  anointing on his gift to embellish the garden and preserve it. Remember this is a garden God created prior to the curse and "HE" testified that it was very good.  Genesis 1:31 So what type of anointing, gifting and glory can improve on what God created and says is very good?  The anointing, gifting and glory that Adam had in perfect communion with God. Since, God is omniscient and omnipotent, and Adam had perfect communion with God in the beginning there was nothing to hinder his Christ-consciousness. The first Adam lost his Christ consciousness . Genesis 3:6-10 Jesus of Nazareth restored  what the  first Adam lost. For if by one man's offence death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.  Romans 5:17  That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16

FORGOTTEN

FORGOTTEN  II

In "Forgotten I", I concluded with those who seem to be forgotten are the focal point of God's attention. the  book of Luke commences with the saga of the forgotten: Zechariah and Elizabeth. They in similitude to Abraham and Sarah were waiting on the promise of God. Abraham and Sarah set the precedent in waiting on God. Zechariah and Elizabeth had waited their entire lives for the answer to their prayers.  To compound their dilemma, Zechariah was a priest and the Holy Spirit testified that he and Elizabeth were righteous obeying all the commandments and blameless. This is a real conundrum, they were not just obedient, but blameless, yet their prayers went unanswered for years. Until Zechariah was visited by an angel; But the angel said unto him, Fear not Zechariah: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elizabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shall call his name John.  Luke 1:13 In this case, God the Father dispatches an angel to give Zechariah the specific answer to his prayer; he will have a son, and his name will be John. The angel even delineates the character and mission of his son, Luke 1:15-17. Prior to revealing  the character of his son, the angel addresses the emotional state of Zechariah. He said you shall have joy and gladness. Apparently, Zechariah hadn't experienced joy and gladness for a long time. Of all the things an angel could address in heaven and on earth, he addresses the mental and emotional state of Zechariah. He addresses the  mental and emotional state of Zechariah, because it is prominent on God's mind. God the Father wants Zechariah to know it is important to him and he is concerned about Zechariah's mental and emotional state. He is not only concerned, but is about to change it. He wants Zechariah to know you won't always feel like "this". Let's examine the "this" that Zechariah was feeling, a plethora of emotions:rejected, unappreciated, overlooked, depressed, despondent, impotent, abandoned and ashamed. Zechariah felt forgotten.  Forgotten is a state of, I have worked just as hard as my contemporaries or even harder, yet I have no harvest.  I know I have planted good seed into good ground. While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.  Genesis 8:22 The laborer is worthy of his hire (1 Timothy 5:18) and I have labored, yet I have garnered no wages. You said, you are a rewarder of tem that diligently seek you. Hebrews 11:6 I seek you daily.  Where is my reward? When is my reward?  I've been seeking the kingdom and it's righteousness, but I have not seen those things I need or want added to my life. But seek ye first the kingdom of God,  and it's righteousness;  and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 This is the plight of the Forgotten. When is the most painstaking question for the forgotten. Even if you know what God promised you or where it is, time is one of the most important parts of the equation.  Time is what made Zechariah feel forgotten and Abraham and Sarah feel forgotten. Joseph felt forgotten in Egypt, Job flet forgotten in his trial and Naomi felt forgotten in Moab. Isn't it interesting that a little thing call time could challenge our faith in God? The eternal God, the High and Holy One, the High and Lofty One who inhabits eternity. His throne is eternal, His ways are eternal, His judgments and justice are eternal, His love is eternal. His mercy is eternal. His word is eternal. His kingdom is eternal. His power, dominion and authority are eternal.  How could he forget? Zechariah's pain was compounded by the Roman occupation of Jerusalem, his position as a priest and the normal cultual expectations of Jewish men in his life time. Imagine the weight and the pain of seeing your prayers answered for other individuals, but not for yourself. This verse typifies Zechariah's state of mind: But Zion said, The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me. Isaiah 49:4 So when Gabriel says your "prayer" is heard, before the angel can finish his statement, Zechariah is thinking what prayer? Gabriel leaves nothing to conjecture, he states his prayer for a son is being answered and gives the name, describes the character and mission of his son. In the description of his son's mission, the answer to Zechariah's  personal prayers and national prayers for the Jewish people are answered. And many of the children of Israel shall  he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Luke 1:16, 17 The Lord had given  the Jewish people the silent treatment for four hundrend years. The masses of Jewish people felt "Forgotten". Then I said, I have labored in vain, I have spent my strenght for nought, and in vain; yet surely my judgment is with the Lord and my work with my God. Isaiah 49:4 This could be the heart cry of an individual as well as an entire nation. Zechariah had been believing for so long, he chose to forget.  Everyday he chose to forget the spiritual, mental and emotional pain. At some point, while executing his priestly office he chose to forget his personal needs. The normal response for  a person who feels forgotten , is to forget the person who forgot them. The visitation of the angel Gabriel attests to the fact that God had not forgotten Zechariah and Elizabeth. In this same visitation,  he testifies that HE has not forgottenthe Jewish people. This is evident by the assignment  He gave to Zechariah's son, John the Baptist. It is evident that God remembers: HE remembers Zechariah and Elizabeth, the Jewish people, HIS promise of a Messiah, prophecies of the Old Testament and HIS covenant. Notice what Mary says in her prayer of Praise and Thanksgiving: He hath holpen his servant Isrel, in remembrance of his mercy. As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham and to his seed forever. Luke 1:54,55  Mary recognizes that God remembers HIS mercy. And his father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Ghost and prophesied saying. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hat visited and redeemed his people. And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David. As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began. That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us. To perform  the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant. The oath which he sware to our father Abraham. That he would grant unto us that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear. In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life. Luke 1:67-75 God remembers and Zechariah remembers. May God remember  His covenant and His mercy toward you  and all the prophecies HE made concerning you. May you see and feel HIS hand as a testament that HE remembers you. Forgotten or Remembered? He remembers you.
Have you ever felt like God forgot about you? Have you ever felt like God forgot about your prayers, your faith, your obedience, your tithes, your offerings, your fasting, your worship, your sacrifices and all the good that you've done? Did you ever think that God forgot about even when you loved your enemies and prayed for those who despitefully used you, even when you didn't want to pray. It is easy to feel "forgotten". In a fame and fortune, trending, most "Likes", most "Tweets" culture, it is easy to feel forgotten. Some of us  constantly feel forgotten,  so this is  not a new phenomena. As the Holy Spirit began to minister to me about the "forgotten" characters of the bible a few names surface: Abraham, Sarah, Naomi, Mordecai, Joseph, Job, David, Elizabeth and Zechariah.   After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield and thy exceeding great reward. And Abram said, Lord God what wilt thou give me, seeing I  go childless and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold to me thou hast given no seed : and lo one in my house is my heir. And behold the word of the Lord came unto him saying, This shall not be thine heir; but he that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir.  And he brought him forth abroad, and said,  Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. Genesis 15:1-5  Abram lived in the land of Canaan  for ten years prior to having Hagar as a concubine. Genesis 16:3 And Abram was fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram. Genesis 16:16  And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the the Lord appeared to Abram and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; wlak before me and be thou perfect. Genesis 17:1 And I will make my covenant between me and thee  and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham, for a father of many nations have I made thee.  And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee.  Genesis 17:2-6 At this juncture in Abraham's life, Ishamael was thirteen, Isaac was not bron yet. And God said unto Abraham, as for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be. And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her, and she shall be a mother of nations, kings of people shall be of her. Genesis 17:15,16  In this case Abraham had to wait twenty-four years before the Lord returns to confirm the promise He made to give him a son. Abraham was seventy-five when God promised him a heir. He was eighty six when Ishmael was born; and one hundred years old when Isaac was born. Even though he lived to be one hundred and seventy-five years old, I know he felt forgotten. He thought God was playing him. It is evident in this prayer mentioning Eliezer, the steward of his house as an heir. Everywhere Abraham went he built an altar to the Lord. Why would God forget him? God had a specific timeline to manifest his promise: Isaac. One of the first promises we see God fulfil i s when a man is one hundred years old. This indicates that God will do one hundred percent of what he said for Abraham. God also sets a precedent with the Father of the Faith, Abraham, by fulfilling his promise through a miracle. Abraham had to bear a lot of shame, reproach and embarrassment; because he was childless for most of his life. In addition to being robbed of the joy of having a son in his youth, he had to endure the ridicule of contemporaries; speculation about him and about Sarah's fertility. This was compounded by the fact that Abraham was launching out into a new releigion, that was unfamiliar to Terah his father. Maybe the new faith that Abraham embraced was the culprit? We see no  indication in scripture that Abraham waned in faith: he did have questions. Most of us have questions, and I do believe in questioning God. He said: Ask and it shall be given you, seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. Matthew 7:7 Questions are pertinent to seeking. Listening is pertinent to finding. Abraham had been seeking God for twenty-four years before he found the answer he desired.  The precedent that is set with Abraham in fulfilling one hundred percent of his promise, is a precedent that is set for us. The Holy Spirit is still fulfilling the promise that God made to Abraham. Abraham had a protracted wait before he could see, feel, taste and touch his promise. After Isaac was born, he did have seventy-five years to enjoy the promise of God.  For many this may be redundant: Put me in remembrance; let us plead together; declare that thou mayest be justified. Isaiah 43:26 Remembrance means, zakar in Hebrew according to Strong's H2142. The root verb zakar has a nuance of meanings. This verb basically means to call to  remember, Genesis 41:9 and Isaiah 43:26. It is a paradox that we who are finite, could remind God who is  infinite and omniscient of anything.  The interesting word in Isaiah 43:26 is "plead". Plead in Hebrew is shaphat, Strong's H8199. In this verse " plead"     is in the passive tense ro Niphal stem. But who can be passive when they are pleading for their life?. . .for their destiny?. .  for their future? Shaphat means
to enter into controversy, plead, have conroversy together, to be judged. My conclusion is the verb is passive, because God invites us to plead, but there is a caveat. remember that  HE is GOD, while you are pleading, and don't speak to him like he is a man. My prayer for the faithful is that God would heal you of the wounds that  come with being rejected, overlooked, unappreciated and cast aside. Maybe your promise is not a son; but a house, a car, a business, a "dream" job, a marriage or a spiritual promotion. God has a good memeory, a great memory, a perfect memory. He has not  memory lapses, dementia or Alzheimer's disease.  There is no scar tissue on HIS brain. His mind is perfect and so are HIS ways. The people who seem to be forgotten, are the ones God remembers the most. They are always on HIS mind. Remember: My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou  so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. Psalm 22:1,2 Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him: he hath put him to grief, when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. Isaiah 53:10 If that is your cry I can empathize. Again, those who seem to be forgotten are the focal point of God's attention. Abraham is just the first example of many forgotten, but faithful people. I decree that this season will be a time of visitation, miracles, signs and wonders that will attest to God's remembrance of you.

 THE BABYLONIAN HARLOT I

 THE BABYLONIAN HARLOT II

Who is the Babylonian harlot? What city reigns over the kings of the earth, New York City where the United Nations is located; this is mystery Babylon. And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of ever foul spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. Revelation 18:2, 3  Fallen is the word "pipto" in the Greek, it means: to descend from a higher place to a lower place, to fall (either form or upon), to be thrust down; to fall under judgment, came under condemnation, , to descend from an erect to a prostrate position, to fall down, to be prostrated, fall prostrate, of those overcome by terror or astonishment or grief or under attack of an evil spirit or of falling dead suddenly; to fall out, fall from i.e. shall perish or be lost; to fall down, fall into ruin: of buildings, walls, etc; to be cast down from  a state of propserity, to fall from a state of uprightness; to perish, i.e. come to an end, disappear, cease; of virtues, to lose authority, no longer have force ( of sayings, of precepts, etc.) to be removed from power by death. This is an apt description of what will happen to the United States of America and New York city in particular. It will fall under judgment; the skyscrapers which once stood erect will be flattened. The population will be astonished and grief stricken from a terror attack where many die instantly. Nuclear fallout will literally kill millions and numerous buildings will be decimated. America will lose its status of prosperity, authority and power. None of the  precepts  or laws of the United States will be respected.  Babylon is tantamount to Babel: a multitude of tongues, languages and peoples; New York, the world melting pot. Every type of demon, foul spirit and unclean and hurtful bird is housed there. All nations have been intoxicated by and in bed with her. They are drunk with her fame,  her wealth,  her power and her desire for it. they are intimately acquainted with her insatiable desire for wealth, fame and power. She is ground zero for the merchants of the earth; here everything is for sale, everything has a price. She, Babylon, has glorified herself, God did not glorify her.  And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. Matthew 23:12 The world leaders and businessmen shall weep and lament over her for the absence of her merchandise: gold, silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, ivory, precious wood, brass, iron and marble, cinnamon, odors, ointments, frankincense, wine, oil, fine flour, wheat, beasts, sheep, horses, chariots, slaves and souls of men.  For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich with the abundance of her delicacies. Revelation 18:3 She is eager to exercise her wanton desire, her lust for what pleases her. She eagerly anticipates giving birth to her lust.  The kings of the earth have intimate knowledge of her secret parts and she has knowledge of the intimate parts of the nations. but neither of them have a commitment to each other. They have no intimacy, only  mutual nakedness. It is a city of demonic alliances and confederacies.  This is a market place which runs the gamut from gold to souls, both are bartered and traded with extensively, some overtly and some covertly.  All the leaders of the world have made covenants with her. All the nations have been intoxicated by the fruit of her fornication: war and bloodshed.  The wine of the wrath of her fornication, wine is the blood, wrath is the war launched through negotiation, mediation, arbitration and fornication: her illicit behavior  with all the demons of the nations. This knowledge is perpetuated to manipulate, control and satisfy the desires of the beast and the false prophet. Yes, covenants are made , but only to destroy the poor, the weak, the vulnerable and the righteous. Covenants are made between billionaires, bankers, media moguls, corporations, families, politicians, and satanists, just to name a few. These "kings" control food production and distribution, water resources,  oil production, oil distribution and pricing, educational and medical resources, housing, information gathering and dissemination, religious groups and religious leaders. In their kingdom, they buy and sell souls, governmental and political positions, religious seats and financial rankings. This is a motley crew of those who are in league with the Babylonian harlot. It is only to appease their mutual lust for power, fame and fortune.  It is always, lust and not love at the core of the Babylonian harlot's actions.  A harlot is ruled by lust, not love.  Why does the Holy Spirit refer to it as "wine of the wrath"? Her fornication has the same  effect as wine: it changes your speech,  your eyesight or outlook, your walk and the way you smell.  She has the odor of the blood of innocent people on her garments.  You cannot be intimate with her modus operandi and remain naive. You must make a decision to emulate her or the antithesis of who she is and represents. You cannot operate from a nucleus of love and lust concurrently. Those who were made rich in Babylon and have a large segment of their investments there shall bewail her lost as their investment disintegrates into thin air.  Mariners from across the globe will mourn over the lost of one of the largest ports in the USA,  and a great loss of riches and income. And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, for no man buyeth her merchandise any more. Revelation 18:11  The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing. And saying, alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off. And cried when they saw  the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!  And they cast dust on their heads and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas,  that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour she is made desolate!  Revelation 18:15-19
The Babylonian harlot has enthroned herself as queen.  She says in her heart, "I am a queen", it is the gathering place of queens from the kingdom of darkness: The Queen of Heaven, Jezebel, Mermaid and Diana.  Diana is the roaman versinon of the name Artemis: Ashtoreth. The Statue of Liberty is an indicator of this fact. Name sare very significant, and the name of the borough, "Queens" is indicative of the coalescing of demonic entities with feminine attributes in this area.  The Queen of Heaven, Mary or the Madonna depict false maternal instincts. Mother Earth, mother nature, celibacy and a facade of virtue and innocence. In Greek religion Hera was known as the "Queen of Heaven", goddess of marriage, the life of women and  the protector  of children in childbirth. She was marride to Zeus, the Greek god of the sky: ruler of heaven and earth and presiding deity over the universe. Zeus also had a daughter named Artemis.  Artemis is the Greek goddess of chastity, virginity and childbirth. Hera and Artemis seem to combine the attributes of Mary of  the Catholic church. The Canaanites burned offerings and poured libations to the Queen of Heaven: Ashtoreth. In Exodus 23:23, 24 the Lord said; For mine Angel shall go before thee, and bring thee in unto the Amorites, and the Hittites and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, the Hivites and the Jebusites: and I will cut them off. Thou shalt not bow down to their gods, nor serve them, nor do after their works: but thou shalt utterly overthrow them, and quite break down their images. god never intended for them to miscegenate physically or spiritually with other nationalites. Ashtoreth  is known by the name of Ashtarte in Phoenicia, Ishtar in Babylonia and Athtar in Arabia. In Phoenicia, Ashtoreth was the chief goddess of the Sidonians, remember Jesus in the New Testament frequently referenced Tyre  and Sidon: Phoenician cities. Ashtoreth is the old Semitic mother-goddess, worshiped in Tyre and Ashkelon, a city of the Philistines.  One of her prominent rituals were sacrificing of a woman's hair or virginity. The epidemic we have with female hair loss, fornication and rape in this country can be traced to a large degree to worship of this demon. Ashtoreth was also worshiped in the Mediterranean: in Cyprus, in Paphos, Malta and Corinth. In Northern Africa, she was known as the "Face of Baal", considered subordinate to Baal. This gives us an indication of her rank in the spiritual hierachy.  Most of us, know her from her Babylonian identity, as the goddess of sexual love and fertility.  In Babylon she was also worshiped as the spouse of Marduk, and at Agade as the spouse of Shamash, Shamash is the Babylonian equivalent of Chemosh. In Assyria, Ashtoreth was regarded as the spouse of Assur and the mother  of gods and men. According to the Britannica  Online Encyclopedia, Ashtoreth is a confluence of the Greek name Astarte and the Hebrew word boshet "shame". This is an indicator in Hebrew culture of the shame associated with worshiping Ashtoreth. In Hellenistic culture, Ashtoreth, was assimilated with another Canaanite goddess, Anath, who was the sister and spouse of Baal.  Jezebel is the goddess of Baal, the husband god. In the Old Testament, a Phoenician princess daughter of Ethbaal, king of Sidonians who worshiped Baal and named after Baal, married a king from Israel: Ahab. This demon, Jezebel, is known for being controlling, manipulative, religious and inflicting fear into people's lives.  The queen Jezebel, is the  personification of the demon Jezebel. She maintained and organized 400 prophets of Ashtoreth and 450 of Baal.  Even Elijah became afraid after she threatened him. Remember it was not the power of the woman who threatened him, it was Baal. In the city of the Babylonian harlot we see all of the attributes of Ashtoreth,  the Queen of Heaven and Jezebel. The word Babylon, according to Hebrew tradition means "gates of gods". New York is definitely one of the chief gates to the United States and to the nations of the world. Every nation sho comes here carries their gods with them. It is strategic that Cospmopolitan magazine which launched as a family publication in New York later morphed into a journal for single females devoted to sexuality, health and beauty. I am convinced that Helen Gurley Brown who changed focus of the magazine in th sixties, was possessed by the spirit of Ashtoreth with strong Jezebel tendencies. She died at 90 in 2012, espoousing fornication, nudity and the "liberty" of women. Her books attest to her beliefs, which I will not mention here. The female population has embraced the tenets of her religion, evident in the behavior of the masses.  Helen Gurley Brown is just one example of the manifestation of these demonic forces and their influence.  She epitomized the "Babylonian Harlot", though harlotry pertains to more than sex.  In Egypt Isis also epitomizes the Queen of Heaven: mother role model, for women and goddess of protection. Her images precede  Mary of the Catholic church in nursing a baby.   New York is merely a microcosm of the United States of America and the nations. There are nuances  in the attributes of these goddesses, but their connection is apparent.
The other member of the coalition which comprises "Queens"' is the Mermaid.  The Mermaid is the queen of seduction. The Mermaid is so seductive, she is hardly noticed.  The mermaid hides in plain sight on every cup of Starbucks coffee, every bag and every store sign. She is not a cartoon character or a figment of Celtic or Hollywood's imagination. She is the wife of Dagon, the fish god. Seldom do we see images of Dagon, because it would not be attractive or seductive. His wife, the queen in the marine world, the Mermaid, is promoted to attract, hypnotize, and seduce people into submission.  This hypnosis and seduction can be conscious, subconscious or unconscious.  Delilah was possessed with the Mermaid spirit, remember she seduced Samson.  The Mermaid was worshiped by the Philistines, just as Dagon. Dagon was worshiped in Assyria, Babylon, near the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean Sea.  Therefore, I conclude that the Mermaid was also worshiped in these regions, because she is the female counterpart of Dagon.  When Jonah preached in Nineveh it was the capital of Assyria. One of the reasons the people of Nineveh repented, was they believed God ascended from the sea in similitude to Jonah. There are few things known about the worship of the Mermaid. She does not have a temple like Diana, at least not a terrestial one. I believe she has an aquatic temple, her kingdom is in the sea. Though few books are available on the worship of the Mermaid spirit, I can attest to this; she wears a crown just like the image on Starbucks and the Statue of Liberty.  I have encountered her directly in the spirit realm, so nothing I say is conjecture.  She lives in an underwater kingdom, wears a crown and is violent to those who threaten her deception, deceit and lies.  She engages in spiritual, mental, emotional and physicla abuse, rape and other forms of sexual abuse to punish those who will not succumb to her seduction. New York is her hometown in the USA, signified by the name of one of the teams "New York Giants". This is one of the indicators that the principality there is from the Philistines. There are other indicators that New York city is the land of the giants, that I will not discuss here. What I have divulged is to verify that the Mermaid is a Philistine demon, and the stronghold she has in New York city. The Babylonian harlot is comprised mainly of these demonic forces; the Queen of Heaven or the Madonna, Jezebel and the Mermaid, Queen of the Sea. Wherever we find the Jews, we find the Philistines opposing them. In this case, we find the Jewish population fo New York being opposed by the spirit of seduction and, the Jewish people being opposed by the Philistines in the United Nations. In reference to Part !,  the United Nations domiciled in New York is the location of the Babylonian harlot. This is the institution that reigns over kings. It is an epicenter for nations, commerce, trade, media, wealth, sex and souls. The Queen of Heaven dominates the airwaves, Jezebel the terrestial domain, and Mermaid the aquatic and subaquatic realm. These spirits in control of these realms, typify the behavior of the majority of New Yorkers. Copious numbers of Christians in New York worship  the Queen of Heaven as Mary, this does not include those in other religions like Yoruba, Santeria and Candomble, who also have a Madonna. Jezebel stole Naboth's land, thus the exorbitant price of real estate in New York city. 1 Kings 21 This is the scripture that describes New York and the Mermaid spirit prevalent there and in the UN: But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:13  Paul is prophesying that the spirit of deception will increase. The power of the Mermaid demon will be magnified as indicated by her proliferation and popularity in movies, toys and music.   This not only pertains to your hormones, but it mainly pertains to your mind: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.  1 Timothy 4:1 Seduction begins with the mind, often it uses the eyegate in sexual seduction, but for any type of seduction all is needed is an eargate. Doctrine simply means teaching, guiding principles, tenets or commandments of a belief system. Notice the next assertion Paul makes after seducing spirits, is doctrine of devils. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7 For to be carnally minded is death, to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Romans 8:6 The United Nations will be seduced into making many decisions against the nation of Israel. The wickedness of the city and the United Nations dwelling in the city will provoke the wrath of God.  Are there are other wicked cities in the world? The answer of course, is yes.  The size of the population, the scope of the wickedness,  the panorama of nations and the panolpy of deals make it unique to other places on earth. It is revered and adored, that is why the kings of the earth will weep over it. And the kings of the earth who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her when they shall see the smoke of her burniing. Revelation 18:9  And the merchants of the earth shall weep and  mourn for her, for no man buyeth their merchandise any more.  Revelation 18:11 The merchants of these thngs, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing. Revelation 18:15. . .And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, what city is like unto this great city? And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city wherein  were made rich  all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour she is made desolate. Revelation 18:18, 19 All the nations of the earth have soul ties to this city and to the demonic forces in this city.  That is why they are crying  over the city, the demons in them feel the decimation of their powers. They should be weeping in repentance, but they are not. This is proof that they worshiped the city, and the wealth that proceeded from the city.  In Exodus 20:3, the Lord says: Thou shalt have no other gods before me.  The Babylonian harlot is a confederacy of demonic powers with female attributes with the major altar and altars in New York city. The other unique quality of the The Babylonian harlot: she has priest and priestesses of the highest order from every major religion, resident there. God will judge her deception, deceit, lies, seduction, raping, pillaging, castrating and bloodsucking of the nations in one hour. The great cities of the world that remain, are to take notice and repent.

 ILLUMINATED or ILLUMINATI  II

 ILLUMINATED or ILLUMINATI  I

The next person we examine in our history of the war between the illuminated and the illuminati is Joshua. Joshua is famous for  leading the children of Israel into the  promised land and for commanding the victory at Jericho. Jericho, a demonic stronghold, is occupied territory by the kingdom of darkness. This is a headquarters, where the  illuminati mandates and conducts operations. Only those with a revelation of how to enter in and seize the spoils are granted entrance, or those who are members of the kingdom of darkness with sufficient rank. Rahab was a gatekeeper and she was employed  by the illuminati. What I will address is Joshua's defeat of the five kings of the Amorites: king of Jerusalem, king of Hebron, king of Jarmuth, king of Lachish and king of Eglon. Five signifies the hand of God on those kings for their destruction, the hand of God on Joshua for exploits and victory, and the grace of God  on the children of Israel. Therefore, the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, gathered themselves together and went up, they and all their hosts and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it.  Joshua 10:5 So Joshua ascended from Gilgal, he, and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valor. And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear them not: : for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee. Joshua 10:7, 8  And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, unto the camp at Gilgal. But these five kings fled, and hid themselves in a cave at Makkedah. And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found hid in a cave at Makkedah. Joshua 10: 15, 16, 17  And all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel. Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring out those five kings unto me out of the cave,And they did so, and brought forth those five kings unto Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the captains of the men of war which went with him, Come near, put your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near, and put their feet up on the necks of them. And Joshua said unto them, Fear not not be dismayed, be strong and of good courage:  for thus shall the Lord do to all your enemies against whom ye fight. And afterward Joshua smote them, and slew them, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening. Joshua 10;21-26  Joshua defeated five kings of the Amorites? Who are the Amorites? The Amorites denied the Israelites passage through their land. The Amorites were gatekeepers for the kingdom of darkness. The Amorites are purported to have occupied Syria and N. Palestine. The Tell el Amarna letters give information of them at the period of a number of city states. The Tell el Amarna letters  is comprised of letters to Amen-hotep IV and his father, Amen-hotep III, from various kings of Western Asia, from Phoenician and Canaanite princes, written in cuneiform characters, and almost entirely in the Babylonian language, though only one or two writers were Babylonian. The Tell el Amarna is a collection of 296  clay tablets found at Tell el Amarna in Egypt in 1897. They give historical validity to the identity of the Amorites. The approximate date of these letters is 1400 B. C. The Philistines, physical giants, in 1100 B.C. descended from the original giants in Genesis 6. There were giants in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. Genesis 6:4 According to biblical archives, Noah and his family were the only human beings to survive the flood. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the the creeping things, and the fowl of heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth:  and Noah only remained. alive, and they that were with him in the ark. Genesis 7:23 The question is how did giants reappear on the scene since they were destroyed in the flood. When Noah cursed Canaan I believe he gave the demons authority to manifest on the earth. And he said, Cursed be Cannan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. Genesis 18:25 Noah seems to ignore Ham,  and curses the descendants of Ham. Noah only mentions Canaan, but since Noah did not pronounce a blessing on the balance of Ham's bloodline, they were left vulnerable to the curse. This should serve as a great lesson to those in leadership. Noah was the apostle, prophet, pastor, evangelist, teacher, judge, mayor, father and king. His words were extremely weighty.  Canaan was the son of Ham: And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut and Canaan. Genesis 10:6  Nimrod was the great grandson of Noah. And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. Genesis 10:8 Nimrod exhibited some of the same attributes as his great grandfather Noah: the ability to organize, build and lead people. He apparently was a great visionary, but his gift was perverted. In the land of Shinar, the scope of his vision is manifested. God makes a personal visit to Shinar, Babel, and disprupts this operation. A war ensues between the illuminated, the sons of God and the illuminati, the sons of Satan. This is how the cursed descendants of Noah began to war against the blessed descendants of Noah.  The next son of God is a giant killer. David like Samson had a revelationof his identity and the identity of the Philistines. There are many similarities in the stories of David and Samson, but there are also many anomalies. They both battled the illuminati of their generation and prevailed. David however, prevailed on a higher level than Samson. David confronts the affront to God's power with courage and candor.  Israel wanted a king and God gives them a king after his own heart. David slaughters the fiercest opponent of Israel publicly. It was God ordained that he should decapitate Goliath's head, the chief of Philistine military leadership. This was a prophetic sign of the domination of the children of Israel, the illuminated, sons of God, over the illuminati, the sons of Satan. David solidified this by presenting the head of Goliath to Saul. It seems logical that the war between the illuminated and the illuminati would cease after the slaughter of Goliath, but it continues.  The war between the illuminated and the illuminati is protracted. The war continues.  Next......Part III
The first battle noted in scripture between the illuminated, the sons of God and the sons of Satan is in Genesis 14. Abram engaged the  kings of Sodom, Gomorrah, Elam and all those in  this alliance in battle. After his victory, Melchizedek, king of Salem brought Abram bread and wine.  Notice that these were all kings who went to battle. Abram is the illuminated one in this instance. These kings represent the illuminati or ambassadors of the kingdom of darkness. Abram doesn't have the title of "King" , but he is a king and priest of the most high God. Abram is met by King of Salem, Melchisedek, with bread and wine as a sign of of his communion with the most high God. Then Abram gives Melchizedek, a tithe of everything as an indication of his covenant with him. This covenant is initiated
by Melchizedek with bread and wine, reciprocated by the tithes and established through an offering of a heifer, she goat, a ram , a turtledove and a young pigeon. And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan. Genesis 14:14  And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people. And the kings of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale. And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God,  And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth. And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand.  And he gave him tithes of all. Genesis 14:16-20  Notice what the king of Sodom says in Genesis 14:21, And the king of Sodom said unto Abram, Give me the  persons, and take the goods to thyself.  The illuminati is interested in the souls of the people as their possessions, the material wealth is secondary. If they can control the souls of the people, the material wealth is a given.  Abram's response to this offer solidifies his authority over the king of Sodom and also Abram's covenant with Melchizedek.  Immediately after a great victory the devil comes to steal it.  And Abram said to the King of Sodom, I have lift up my hand unto the Lord, the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth. That I will not  take from a thread to a shoelatchet, and that I will not take anything that is thine
lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich: Genesis 14: 22, 23 Abram escapes compromise and defeats the illuminati at their own game. Buying and selling souls is the "A" game of the illuminati.  In contrast saving souls, is the prime focus of the illuminated, the sons of God; like Abram who was exemplary in saving Lot. Years later we see that Lot is living in Sodom and this time, he is rescued by two angels. Genesis 19 The lesson is the costliness of backsliding effects you, your family and generations. Lot is a type of the Christian, who has been illuminated enough for salvation, but never stops living like the masses.  Abraham is the antithesis of Lot.  The next son of God, we will examine is Moses. Moses' parents even discerned that he was more illuminated than the average baby.  Hebrews 11;23  Moses has a very unique story, he was parented, educated and trained by the illuminati.  Imagine when the moment of illumination came when Moses was in the house of the illuminati. He was still enjoying all the benefits of the social and economic status of the illuminati.  The common train of thought is that Moses'  act of murder was capricious.  My personal perspective is that Moses was displeased with the status quo and he had a protracted sense of justice and judgment which manifested on this day. The difference between Joseph and Moses who were both influenced by the illuminati during their life is: Joseph  was sold as a slave to the illuminati and became a prisoner under their dominion. Moses in contrast lived the formative years of his life as a member of the illuminati. He knew all the intricacies of the house of Pharoah.  Moses was a very strong willed person. This is an observation, not a criticisim. He had to be strong willed to make the decision to leave Pharoah's house. By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharoah's daughter. Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward. Hebrews 11:24, 25  Moses defies all the odds and stereotypes. He survives a time of great genocide in Israeli history.  The illuminati: the magicians, wizards, star gazers and prognisticators always decree mass abortion whenever a Savior is deemed to be born. Moses is mentored by the Egyptians, not any Egyptian, he goes all the way to the top. He is mothered by Pharoah's daughter, the upper echelon of the illuminati, the royal family. Having full knowledge of the benefits and perks of being the grandson of Pharoah, Moses consciously decided to say, no. Again, this is not typical behavior for the illuminati.  Remember, Moses was part of the illuminati, because he was trained and lived in their household as a heir to the throne. God however is viewing Moses as the illuminated, the son of God yet to be revealed in his generation.  Therefore, Moses defeats the odds because he is able to endure a life of indoctrination by the illuminati and emerge illuminated. From the life of Moses we ascertain some attributes of the illuminati: 1.  These are World Rulers, 2. Entire Families or Bloodlines are members, 3. They are Wicked People and 4. They are Rich and Wealthy People.  So Moses conquers all the odds against him except one. He did not enter the promised land. Moses was barred from the promised land because, he did not reverence God before the people. When he became angry all those demons he had been delivered from in the wilderness rushed back into his life. At that juncture, he adopted the attitude of a King, like the illuminati, not a King and servant like the illuminated, sons of God.  Remember Moses had observed the wrath of Pharoah even  prior to his decision to forsake Egypt. Hebrews 11:27  The same wrath his parents decried, and he defeated marred his behavior in the end. Since, Moses was the Messiah of his age and the people of Israel were also familiar with the wrath of  Pharoah; God could not allow to go into the promised land. God did not want any familiar spirits from slavery entering into the land of promise. Moses was setting a precedent for all  future leaders of Israel. The spirit on Moses would flow down to the entire population. God could not permit the same spirit ruling the illuminati, to rule his people. There are a myriad of things we can learn about the illuminati by studying the life of Moses. One of the most intriguing is that God chose him to institute the Passover. Blood sacrifices and bloodlines were crucial  and remain crucial to the illuminati.  A blood sacrifice and  a bloodline was vital for the illuminated: the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ. For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matthew 26;28  Moses was the perfect candidate to  to institute the Passover because he had already learned the power of blood sacrifices and bloodlines from the illuminati. When he was fully illuminated, this knowledge worked for his good. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 God, the Father, uses all the powers of the illuminati against  them internally, but the significance of the death of the  first born cannot be underestimated.  Can you imagine  if God wiped out all the witches, warlocks, stargazers, necromancers for a generation? In effect, that is what God did in wiping out the first born of Egypt. The heirs of an entire generation of demonic power and wealth were killed. Egypt would never be the same.  When Moses instituted the Passover, the first born of  Egypt was destroyed. When Jesus the first born  instituted the Passover, he was killed and Satan thought he had obtained vengeance from the first Passover. Satan, however was wrong. It was only a temporary victory.  The illuminated Jesus Christ, the first born among many brethren completed the job Moses started at the first Passover. Jesus Christ is the Messiah and the Passover lamb. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messiah cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come he will tell us all things. Jesus said unto her, I that speak unto thee am He. John 4:25, 26  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. 1 Peter 1:18, 19 Stay tuned for Part II.

 ILLUMINATED or ILLUMINATI  III

As the war continues between the illuminated and the illuminati, David in a prior episode decapitates the Philistine champion. 1 Samuel 18:25,27 The two things that we ascertain from David are effective strategies in defeating the illuminati. The mind control of the illuminati must be severed from the minds of the people and the ability of the illuminati to reproduce must be aborted.  One of the most intriguing times in the life of David is when he dwelt with Achish, king of Gath. 1 Samuel 27:23 Achish gives him Ziklag and David resides there sixteen months. David is shown favor by the ruler of his greatest enemy. David is favored by Achish, king of the Philistines, and invited to come to the battle against Saul.  But due to mistrust by others in the camp, he is not sanctioned to go. This is David's testimony among his enemies: Then Achish called David, and said unto him, Surely, as the Lord liveth, thou hast been upright, and thy going out and thy coming in with me in the host is good in my sight: for I have not found evil in thee since the day of thy coming unto this day: nevertheless the lords favor thee not. and David said unto Achish, But what have I done?. . . . . .And Achish answered and said to David I know that  thou art good in my sight, as angel of God: notwithstanding the princes of the Philistines have said, He shall not go up with us to the battle. 1 Samuel 29:6,8 9 David becomes king and defeats  the Philistines, Moabites, Ammonites, Syrians and Amalekites. 2 Samuel 2:4; 2 Samuel 8:11,12 All these nations  represent powers in the kingdom of darkness. David defeats them because his father is the Father of lights and David is walking in the light. James 1:17 After David sins he wars against the illuminati again; this time he has to be rescued. Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines; and David waxed faint. 2 Samuel 21;15  But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him.  Then the men of David sware unto him saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel. 2 Samuel 21:17 Jesus said . . .I am the light of the world, he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12 The Old Testament displays this by Hebron and  Zion being set on a hill. This entire Psalm is about the war between light and darkness, the illuminated and the illuminati, the sons of God and the sons of Belial. Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his "Anointed" saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath and vex them in his sore displeasure. Yet have I set  my king upon my holy hill of Zion. Psalm 2:1-6 The next person with the illumination and the courage and boldness to confront the powers of darkness is Elijah. And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand  there shall not be dew or rain these years.  1 Kings 17:1    And the word of the Lord came unto him saying, Arise, get thee to Zarephath which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee. So he arose and went to Zarephath. 1 Kings 19:8-10  Elijah could stand before  Ahab because he could stand before God. The Lord sent Elijah to Cherith and to Zarephath, he obeyed in both cases. Elijah does not confront the prophets of Baal in Zidon. Elijah engages in covert operations on Jezebel's home turf. He defeats the spirits of Baal here, prior to confronting them at Mt. Carmel. He defeated poverty, famine and death. They never lacked bread or oil,  apparently they never lacked water, because you must have water to live and to make bread. He overcame death when he raised the widow woman's son from the dead. And she said unto Elijah, What have I to do with thee thou man of God art thou come unto me to call my sin to remembrance, and to slay my son? And he said unto her, Give me thy son. And he took him out of her bosom, and carried him up into a loft, where he abode, and laid him upon his own bed. 1 Kings 17:18,19 And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah, and the  soul of the child came unto him again, and he revived. And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother, and Elijah said, See thy son liveth.  1 Kings 17:22, 23 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? And he answered, I have not  troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father's house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the Lord, and thou hast followed Baalim. 1 Kings 18:18 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel's table. 1 Kings 18:19  So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered at the prophets together unto mount Carmel. And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long, halt ye between two opinions? If the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then said Elijah unto the people I even I only, remain a prophet of the Lord,  but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men. Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no  fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: And ye call on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the Lord: and the God that answereth by fire let him be God. And all the people answered and said, it is well spoken. And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose ye one bullock for  yourselves and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under it. And they took the bullock which was given them and dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, Baal, hear us, But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar that was made. 1 Kings 18:20-26 So prior to defeating the principalities face-to-face, Elijah confronts them in the spirit realm. Elijah utilizes a three prong approach. He confronts the demonic forces, the illuminati who werve them and the people who keep them in power. Elijah repairs the foundations by rebuilding the altars. Altars are fundamental and pivotal to the establishment of power,  the generation of power and the promulgation of power. Altars were also a symbol of who had dominion in a particular region. Notice that Elijah repairs the altar then he goes to battle. The illuminated and the illuminati are cognizant of the power of an altar.  Elijah addresses the core of the matter, because everyone is a servant of light or a servant of darkness, by coercion or their own volition.  A common pattern noted in scripture is the illuminated, sons of God, spend a segment of their life under the rulership of the illuminati. This pattern is verified by the life of Joseph, Moses, Joshua, David, Elijah, Daniel, Jesus and Paul. Prior to addressing the life of Paul and Jesus there is one more person I need to expound on, Daniel. Daniel due to his spiritual insight and wisdom in Math and in the Sciences was favored by the leadership of the Babylonian empire. No one has comparable favor with the illuminati with the exception of Joseph. Daniel excelled in Math and Science and Joseph excelled in leadership and organizational ability. To plan provision for the entire Egyptian nation and the entire world during his tenure, he also must have been a mathematical genius.  Now God had brought Daniel into favor and tender love with the prince of the eunuchs. Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel 1:9,18 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding that the king inquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers tht were in all his realm. Daniel 1:20  The Holy Spirit who has  enumerated all the stars which HE made is wiser than any demon or familiar spirit. When the illuminati was ripe to be slaughtered Daniel delivered them by his propitiation. Daniel 2:24 Daniel exceeds all the wise men of Babylon and is worshiped by Nebuchadnezzar. This is another instance of the illuminati acknowledging that Jehovah is God.  Daniel 2:46 The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is , that your  God is a God of gods, and a Lord of Kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret. Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon. Daniel 2:48 The illuminati, recognizes the greatness in Daniel, the illuminated.  The wisdom,  integrity and intimacy with God provokes Daniel's enemies: Nebuchadnezzar, Darius and Cyrus to elevate him even above their own.  Daniel is in captivity, but is  still acknowledged by his enemies as the upper echelon in all his endeavors. It is apparent God always has a  strategic person to represent him. Often this person is in a tenouous position, between life and death. God always shows up and shows himself strong on their behalf. In the book of Daniel God manifests himself on multiple occasions. This is Daniel's testimony from the emissaries of the kingdom of darkness: Then was Daniel brought in before the king. And the king spake and said unto Daniel. Art thou that Daniel, which art of the children of captivity of Judah, whom the king my father brought out of Jewry? I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom  is found in thee. Daniel 5:13,14  David and Daniel are referred to as children of the light: David as the light of Israel(2 Samuel 21:15) and Daniel as a person with light and understanding. Most of Daniel's encounters with the illuminati transpired in the prayer closet.  When he emerges he extrapolates the wisdom and revelation of Jehovah God before his enemies.  One of the most notable words of knowledge that Daniel gives is the one he delivers to Belshazzar of the handwriting on the wall. His revelation of the handwriting on the wall is one of the most referenced in scripture, especially pertaining to revelatory gifts and interpretation.  Daniel 5:18-31 Favor doesn't always garner popularity. Daniel was favored by Darius, the successor to Belshazzar, but not by his colleagues. Daniel was next to Darius in authority and this garnered hatred and jealousy from other members of the illuminati. One hundred and twenty princes and two presidents conspired to kill Daniel. Daniel was not eaten, scratched, mauled or scared of the lions. Daniel 6:16-23     His enemies and their families however were all killed by lions. Due to Daniel's intimacy with God, at least one hundred and two members of the illuminati were eaten by lions. Daniel 6:24 The illuminati only serves to advance God's promotion of Daniel and his favor with Darius. Daniel 6:25  In the New Testament I will only address Paul and Jesus Christ. Paul was constantly accosting leadership. He had  battles with governing officials in Malta, Philippi, Ephesus, Jerusalem and Rome. Paul purposed in his heart to testify in Jerusalem. The Father purposed in his heart for Paul to testify in Rome. Acts 23:11 Paul was rescued from a mob intent on killing him in Jerusalem and therefore, transported to Caesarea. In Caesarea, Paul gives his testimony not to save himself, but to save Felix. Felix governor of Casearea,  is married to a Jew, Drusilla. Felix interacts with Paul often but he is motivated by money  not by the truth.  Felix is also concerned about popularity so Paul remains incarcerated. For the right sum, Felix would have  favored    money over popularity. Festus replaces Felix and is partial to the Jews just as Felix. Festus desires to judge Paul in Jerusalem, but Paul appeals to Caesar.  Festus grants Paul's request to be judged by Caesar Augustus. In the interim, King Agrippa and Bernice visit Festus in Caesarea.  King Agrippa wants to hear Paul's testimony based on his communication with Festus. Paul details his testimony to King Agrippa and King Agrippa is almost persuaded to be a Christian.  Acts 26:27,28  Festus believes Paul is deranged, but Paul's testimony is similar to the testimony of Jesus Christ before Pontius Pilate. But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus, but speak forth the words of truth and soberness. Acts 26:25 Agrippa and Festus concur that Paul is innocent, but will not be liberated because he appealed to Caesar. This is the plan of God for Paul, and he is transported to Rome by a centurion of Augustus. Jesus was targeted and hated by the illuminati from his birth to his death. Herod King of Judea attempted to kill him at his birth and Herod Antipas cross examined him at his death.  When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilean. And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time. and when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him, and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.  Then he questioned him with many words; but he answered him nothing. And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate. And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves. Luke 23:6-9, 11,12  Each gospel gives a different perspective on the final hours of Jesus. We began this discourse on the illuminated versus the illuminati with Abraham warring against the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah.  We shall conclude it with the testimony of Jesus Christ before Pontius Pilate. Pilate was very highly esteemed in the kingdom of darkness to judge Jesus Christ. Pilate the Roman governor, was intrigued by Jesus Christ, this Jewish king under his jurisdiction.  And Jesus stood before the governor; and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews?  And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest. Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?  And he answered to him never a word; insomuch that the governor marveled greatly.  Matthew 27:11,13,14  For he knew that for envy they had delivered him. Matthew 27:18 As governor of Judea, Pontius Pilate was keenly aware of political conspiracies, plots, plans and sabotage. In Matthew it states the  governor inquires if he is king of the Jews. The gospel of Mark records Pontius Pilate inquires is he king of the Jews: And Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews? and he answering said unto him, Thou sayest it. Mark 15:2 Pontius Pilate is a member of the illuminati, yet he asks about Jesus position in the Jewish nation from two vantage points: power as the governor of Judea and personal as Pontius Pilate.  He was intrigued with how Jesus ascended to power as King of the Jews. The demeanor of jesus Christ and the authority of his responses convinced Pilate that Jesus Christ was powerful. Pilate knew there was express protocol to follow in the Roman empire to gain promotion. How did Jesus adhere to the protocol in Judaism and rise to power, was the question for Pilate. The Jews answered him, "We have a  law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid. John 19:7,8  The illuminati afraid of the illuminated? Pilate was afraid because no one could argue with a genuine heir who has rights to the throne. Political intrigue, games, ambition and even discipline to standards could elevate you, but a genuine birthright could not be disputed. Jesus ends his testimony with a proclamation of His purpose. ......To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. John 18:37  Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. John 18:38  The significance here is that iniquity begins with a lie. There would be no illuminati without a lie. Why didn't He mention that HE was life? I believe it was  because belief of a lie brought forth death and changed the course of humanity. Jesus is laying the axe to the root. When Pontius Pilate asks Jesus, what is truth, this is not a rhetorical question. Pilate had concluded that truth was relative.  The Roman government claimed to know the truth, the Jews claimed to possess the truth and every culture and religion in the Roman empire claimed acknowledgement of the truth.  Pilate never changed his opinion (not in scripture) about Jesus. And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross, And the writing was, Jesus of Nazareth The King of the Jews This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city, and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin. Then said the chief priest of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written I have written. John 19:19-22 

   SIGNS OF THE TIMES

The signs of the times are ubiquitous and obvious. The propagation and legalization of same sex marriage: a sign, burning of churches in the United States of America: a sign, attempts to start a race war in the United States of  America: a sign, the rejection of  Judaism and the embrace of Islam: a sign. These are only a few of the signs of the end times. This is what Jesus said: And he sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be: and what shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world? Matthew 24:3 This is the definition of a sign: Strong's Greek (semeion) 1. a sign, mark, token, A. that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from others and  is known. B. a sign, prodigy portent i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature. 1. of signs protending remarkable events soon to happen 2. of miracles and wonders by which God authenticates the men sent by Him,  or by which men prove that the cause they are pleading is God's.  To continue, this is verse 24:4 And Jesus  answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  Notice he didn't say a demon, because most deception will be perpertrated by demons through men. So be very careful of the relationships you enter into and the level of relationship you have with people in these end times.  Matthew 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Matthew 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations fo my name's sake. Matthew 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, shall hate one another. Matthew 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise,  and shall deceive many. Matthew 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matthew 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for  a witness unto all nations: and then shall the end come.

The first sign Jesus  denoted was deception. This will be a time hallmarked by deception of the masses. The deception will be massive and the deceivers will be massive. This will be a time permeated by fakes, phonies and facades. People will be searching for a "Savior", many will exalt themselves and claim to be the Messiah. The only anointing most will have, will proceed from a bottle of olive oil, though there is a Satanic anointing that is reserved, especially for this end time that proceeds from the "antichrist". Jesus says, be careful, be sober and and listen to what he has to say, so no one deceives you.  Don't be deceived by what you hear, because lies will be perpetuated which will spawn more hatred and unrest. A lie is most effective when it sounds close to the truth. Notice that the antithesis of everything that Jesus embodies will be be burgeoning on the scene.  Don't even be deceived by what you see.  This is a time to have strong spiritual discernment and trust the discernment that you have and not your logic. There will be many that claim, I am the only apostle with the true Apostle's doctrine; I am the only apostle remaining.  I am the only apostle with the real signs of an apostle. I am the only prophet with a rhema word from the Lord. I am the only true prophet left. I am the only the only evangelist with a mandate for evangelizing this city, state or nation.  I am the only evangleist who can garner, the endtime harvest. I am the only pastor who really loves the people in this city. I am the only pastor after God's own heart. Notice Jesus said many will come in my name and say "I am", "I", "I", "I" seems to be the recurring theme and a sign of that which is false.  Lucifer started with "I", I will ascend above the clouds, I will be like the most high. Isaiah 14:14 Every tree bears fruit after it's kind, as it is with Satan, so it is with his disciples. There is only one "I AM", his name is Jesus. Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, I say unto you before Abraham was, I am. John 8:58 During this time of crisis, trauma and trouble, Matthew 24:7, as multitudes want and need help, help will proceed from the wrong place. If help doesn't really "help" you, is it really help? If your Savior save you from drowning in a tsunami, but prostitutes you as payment is that real help? If someone prevents your murder, but makes you their slave in the aftermath is that "really" help? If your "Messiah" feeds you faithfully for a month during a famine, and on day 32 says you better sell this crack and heroin if you want to continue to eat, or I'll blow your mother, your father, your wife's and your children's brains out. After that, I will shoot you up with heroin. Is that really help? This is the quality of help people will receive at this time in history. This will be prevalent  at the beginning of sorrows. If this is prevalent at the beginning of sorrows, what will the end entail? Political conflict, social conflict, national and international conflicts will be pervasive.  Man will be in conflict and nature will be in conflict. Everything that can be shaken, will be shaken. Whose voice then shook the earth, but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also aheaven. And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. Hebrews 12:26, 27 In the midst of these events, persecution will intensify in the church, it has already started. Family members, friends and other Christians will cause the martyrdom of fellow Christians.  The opposition against the most fervent, passionate, committed Christians will be tangible, even to those associated with them. This is an eera when every hardship, clamity, dissent and division will be attributed to Christians, due to the spirit of antichrist. The solution will be to report Christians to gain relief. Some will betray family members, others church members,  church leaders, and some will betray friends.  This spirit of antichrist, will spew out  hatred in the atmosphere. Hatred will be the norm of the day. Hatred just like love has no respect of persons, it will come into any door open to it. This will be a time rife with bitterness, anger, resentment and unforgiveness. The stage will be set for  deception. Bitterness, unforgiveness, and hatred are the breeding ground for deception, deceit and lies. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you; and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then  shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. Matthew 24:9,10  These scriptures also verify that love and truth are connected.  And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. for many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 2 John 1:6,7  In this scripture the deceivers confess that Jesus Christ has not come in the flesh. In these last days, the deceivers confession is that they are the manifestation of Jesus Christ in the flesh. They are the anointed : apostle, prophet, pastor, evangelist, teacher, psalmist, intercessor, missionary, . . .  The connection is between bitterness, anger and resentment; how hatred, will open the door to deception. Hatred will open the door to "the antichrist".  Many will be deceived because they want to soothe their conscious after betraying others. Instead of  repenting and  confessing that they have shed innocent blood, they would rather continue in the facade that they are right. If they are right, they have no sin. they are justified. False prophets will rise and jsutify multitudes in their sins(s). Itching ears will cause many to crave a palatable message, because men shall have no love for the truth. I have no greater love than to hear my children walk in truth. 3 John 1:4 Not only shall sin abound, but the mystery of iniquity shall abound: among old and young, rich and poor, male and female, in all the nations. Prior to the return of Jesus iniquity shall abound,  you will witness the depths of sin, measures of iniquity you didn't know existed.  Sin always destroys people: spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.  At this epoch in history you will see a glimpse of what Satan ordained for the earth from the very beginning. The full measure of the mystery of iniquity, will not be  revealed until the Holy Spirit leaves the earth, when the church is raptured. Lucifer began with the deception of Eve. Due to the curse, he had a brother murder a brother.  In the beginning, so will it be in the end: he will attempt to deceive  the very elect, the body of Christ and he will cause as many brethren as possible to murder each other. The spirit of murder, especially, the shedding of innocent blood will be a hallmark of this time.  Only those who can endure the hatred, betrayal, hardships and suffering will be saved.  Only those who are rooted and  grounded  in love and have a love for the truth will be saved.  That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye being rooted and grounded in love. May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, the length, the depth, the height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3:17-19 Only the love of the Father, the love of Jesus Christ, agape love, will give you the strength to endure to the end that you may be saved.
