Rosh Chodesh Kislev is the moon that Jesus, the Messiah, made to mark the darkness of months, darkness that only he can destroy and bring a rebirth of Light. So, the darkness is merely the part of the pangs for rebirth. Birth is sacrifice for a legacy, both in the material and the spiritual realms. Also, now is often referred to as “the month of dreams,” for it contains more daily portions concerning dreams than any other month. It begins the season of hope for the return of the Light.
The daily portion today concerns “fire gifts” inaugurating the time of dreams, for all creation and her Creator. He, our only High Priest tells me, ‘speak to the people of our Logos in all things. Tell them, charge all of them about re-presenting my food, my Fire-Gifts of pleasing fragrance, at the all times. Tell them this is the Fire-Gift that all are to present to God, not the ones that please themselves.’
So, we will speak in flame and dreams, of bad then good, the whole that lays bare the reality of earthly things, now recalled into obedience for rebirth into a promised union. We speak to empower those who are free to serve the Lord, children of our God sacrificing for reconciliation. We speak to correct those who still disobediently occasion disorder upon the footstool. Lastly, we speak to warn the dark ones who are still enthralled to gentile lusts, for they are bewitched and enslaved by a filthy existence.
After Israel left Egypt,
the clan of Jacob left those barbarians behind;
Judah became holy land for him,
Israel the place of holy rule.
Sea took one look and ran the other way;
River Jordan turned around and ran off.
The mountains turned playful and skipped like rams,
the hills frolicked like spring lambs.
What’s wrong with you, Sea, that you ran away?
and you, River Jordan, that you turned and ran off?
And mountains, why did you skip like rams?
and you, hills, frolic like spring lambs?
Tremble, Earth! You’re in the Lord’s presence!
in the presence of Jacob’s God.
He turned the rock into a pool of cool water,
turned flint into fresh spring water.
So Isaac called in Jacob and blessed him. Then he ordered him, “Don’t take a Caananite wife. Leave at once. Go to Paddan Aram to the family of your mother’s father, Bethuel. Get a wife for yourself from the daughters of your uncle Laban. “And may The Strong God bless you and give you many, many children, a congregation of peoples; and pass on the blessing of Abraham to you and your descendants so that you will get this land in which you live, this land God gave Abraham.” So Isaac sent Jacob off. He went to Paddan Aram, to Laban son of Bethuel the Aramean, the brother of Rebekah who was the mother of Jacob and Esau. Esau learned that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him to Paddan Aram to get a wife there, and while blessing him commanded, “Don’t marry a Canaanite woman,” and that Jacob had obeyed his parents and gone to Paddan Aram. When Esau realized how deeply his father Isaac disliked the Canaanite women, he went to Ishmael and married Mahalath the sister of Nebaioth and daughter of Ishmael, Abraham’s son. This was in addition to the wives he already had.
Jacob left Beersheba and went to Haran. He came to a certain place and camped for the night since the sun had set. He took one of the stones there, set it under his head and lay down to sleep. And he dreamed: A stairway was set on the ground and it reached all the way to the sky; angels of God were going up and going down on it.
Then God was right before him, saying, “I am God, the God of Abraham your father and the God of Isaac. I’m giving the ground on which you are sleeping to you and to your descendants. Your descendants will be as the dust of the Earth; they’ll stretch from west to east and from north to south. All the families of the Earth will bless themselves in you and your descendants. Yes. I’ll stay with you, I’ll protect you wherever you go, and I’ll bring you back to this very ground. I’ll stick with you until I’ve done everything I promised you.”
Jacob woke up from his sleep. He said, “God is in this place—truly. And I didn’t even know it!” He was terrified. He whispered in awe, “Incredible. Wonderful. Holy. This is God’s House. This is the Gate of Heaven.” Jacob was up first thing in the morning. He took the stone he had used for his pillow and stood it up as a memorial pillar and poured oil over it. He christened the place Bethel (God’s House). The name of the town had been Luz until then. Jacob vowed a vow: “If God stands by me and protects me on this journey on which I’m setting out, keeps me in food and clothing, and brings me back in one piece to my father’s house, this God will be my God. This stone that I have set up as a memorial pillar will mark this as a place where God lives. And everything you give me, I’ll return a tenth to you.”
I just found this pic of my baptism. Pappaw Brooks took the pic, the Trinity is in the background while my mother and father are facing the camera. The two elders are the reason I am posting it. They prayed for me for decades, despite all my ups and downs, ins and outs. I thanked them. All they said in return was that they did it so I would do the same for “many” others. They stressed “many” and I laughed. I am such a fool, because only now I know what it feels like to pray for the ungrateful apostates and ignorant others for decades, only so that they might come clean before it is too late. They, unnamed but raised from death, offer a legacy in our sufferings and anonymity… all for God’s name alone.
Shiloh, Limestone County, Texas
Shiloh, also known as Lo or Luther, is on Farm Road 1953 six miles south of Mexia in northern Limestone County. The name Lo may have been an abbreviation of Shiloh. It is a shambles of a wide spot in the road today. But it will always be the soil of my identity. In the early 1800’s my fraternal blood was among the first anglos to settle there. My grandfather purchased the best land, it held the only artesian wells in the area. They fed the creeks for the Navasota. He dammed up a part of them for that lake in the background, which, I believe, still feeds the creeks.
Shiloh will always be “my happy place,” even though my sisters out-voted me to sell the farm. I am still sad about that but the lessons, memories, and dreams I had there have sheltered and fed me at the worst times in my life. And they still refresh me in crucial times. Recently, I discovered that many of my experiences there echoed those of a hero pappaw handed down to me, Omar Bradley… not Eisenhower, he’s a politician, or Patton, he’s a “jerk.” He served under all of them and said, “Be the one nobody talks about because that’s the man that God talks to.” He was convienced that God worked through Omar for operation Overlord.
I learned to hunt squirrels with the same kind of weapon, the same way, and at the same age. I love that; the small things fitting together just right mean the most in God’s time. It’s an edifying comfort to always have a sure point of origin and summation. No matter how far afield I’ve been called or taken, I have always been able to triangulate with those two points in order to set a new course for home. More importantly, on the best of trips, God has granted me to help some of the captured or sick or lost along the way.
About a decade ago, I had occasion to trace family origins through Scotland in person, to a unique clan of “traditional healers” and obstreperous warriors (typical Scots) prior to the Christianization of British Isles. Our surname was shortened when we came to the isles and again when we acrossed the ocean to the New World. Family folk lore (handed down by the males) is about our whole lineage making a vow to defend the rule of Judah long before then. But who believes stories from family folklore? What does that mean? As far as I know, at least every other man in the fraternal line has been a minister. Not sure of the accuracy of folklore, but so far, by the Spirit, I’ve always been stood up again after getting knocked down in defense of Christ Jesus, his reality and truth. It appears that I am the end of the line. Maybe it is because I never got the paperwork or acknowledgment my forefathers did, but I am good with that because I forsook those dubious glories in obedience of God’s word to me.
The men of my line have always been “deliberate.” That would explain the number of my kin who went mad, drunk or sober, seeing all the counterfeits rising up in American churches. Looking back, I was on rails all along because as I shared before, I got it from the other side too. I do know God takes vows seriously, while too many “special” people switch allegiances at the whims of their “special” material culture agendas. My pappaw lost a lung in Italy to a fascist bullet and he, as a medic and officer, was one of the first to care for those liberated from the Nazi death camps. Even at seminary before the war, he was troubled by what he saw. After the war, especially when the fraudulent “culture wars” started in the 70’s. He decided never to go back to church or finish his seminary training, even after he made some money. He made a lot for a boy who couldn’t afford shoes growing up. If he was good, then his father let him put his cold feet in the grain on the way to market on cold days.
“When they started hanging flags in response to the Soviet threat,” he told me, “then I knew that one day this country and apostate churches would cheer the construction of camps to become just like the Nazis and Soviets.” His point was that people called by God should never sellout to the powers that be. For then, instead of being salt and light, they’d be darkness and salt the earth just like the Romans did to call their murderous work “peace.” That is the semblance of anti-christ, from age to age. He was a real prophet because he died just as the Soviet wall fell and many Americans in apostate churches started rising their blasphemous walls to divide people and rule the world for profit. “The Patriot Church Movement” for example is obvious and overt idolatry in false-fatherhood. How can all that not be going to hell? But trying to teach idolaters latin or what words actually mean isn’t my job. I have orders to grind on the chaos or cut away the darknss, not descend into their black hole. I fear for them. As my great-grandfather used to say, ‘you cannot preach heaven and raise hell, then expect to be saved.’ And I would’ve pitied any fool who tried to put any flag in his church.
Our Lord refused to tempt our God; he flatly rejected Satan’s overt offer for material wealth and earthly rule. Who told all these “special” people that they should openly tempt God? But for decades they’ve been saying, “yes, yes, thank you Satan! More please!” But for me and mine, we will follow the example of Jesus Christ. It won’t take 1700 years to witness very different results for the world and the Church. Just now, I know the better part of 70 million Americans haunt social clubs that either actively support, or passively abide, the same Satanic rules of hate and arrogance of those other, godless nations (waiting for Barna’s number and final advanced election analytics). And who told them to put a thumb on the scales of justice? Wisdom calls them doomed…Talk about a common Caananite woman? C’mon man! A Righteous Jewish Father (the only real father) would never, ever let any of those skanks near his only Son, forget thoughts of intimacy.
Pappaw and the Word of God are right, “the Kingdom of Jesus would never be a republic or single people because God Word’s ordained it after his own rejection.” Damn I miss that man. Where are the men like him?…not many about these days. I don’t image anyone could’ve ever called him a liberal, but I know he would’ve punched any tyrant or any of their supporters in the throat and crushed their balls stepping over them, if any of those frauds ever blasphemed the name of our Lord and God to his face. I’ve done marginally better, yet been rejected more often than he. But, after awhile, what can you say to people that committed to delusion and sin? How does one curse a curse or cursing people? Are they going to have to lose everything in complete horror before they realize that the only thing they are at war with is the Lord God Almighty? Christ Jesus relieved me that burden by giving me orders offer peace first. But soon, if they love war and hate so much, then they will be given what they want eternally. I fear for them.
The forms of godlessness that the enemy has seduced too many American churches into, we discussed in a past posts. None of it can be bound in heaven, for they’ve been abused by the enemy to fail and frustrate the havest. You know all those rainless clouds that lying weather men talk about, “it will rain once we have complete control of the powers be, one more judge, one more president, one more war, etc...” That’s the same motto that godless people used to rule godless peoples with apostate churches for 1700 years. So, I see the wisdom of stoning false prophets in the OT. Anyone else tired of their legacy of lies and false prophecies?
I am looking far down the tracks and high up to Glory, trying to triangulate how long it will take to recover the fields of human florishing and other important social issues, after they’ve been salted with hate, arrogance, and legislation, so that a holy Church might heal all that terror with God’s power in Jesus’ way. “Cleanse the water to save the fish, cleanse the faith to save the nations”…righteous orders from the Righteous One. Many “special” people will argue that’s two different orders so they might split them and insert theirown “special” mission creep overtime, but the orders are one in the same according to my Lord and God. Can you image the owner and sower of a field sending a harvester only to find a multitude salting the earth while screaming the sower’s name? What is Jesus’ way to rectify that type of abomination? What does that look like? How do the righteous come out of them to get to the promises of the owner?
No matter how it works out over time, I promise God’s way is always the same, unlike the ways of the nations and apostates. The enemy always realigns to seduce the weak, but God’s way remains the same, despite the prognostications of fraudlent schemes for global horror and spectacular self-righteousness. If they were right, then it is they who’d be left behind. So let’s hope it doesn’t come to that, for their sakes.
“And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye bind on earth, shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.”
“This is no time for ‘fancy Dans’ who won’t hit the line with all they have on every play, unless they can call the signals. Each player on this team-whether he shines in the spotlight of the backfield or eats dirt in the line-must be all-Jesus*… We have men of politics*, too few men of God… We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. The world has achieved brilliance without con-science. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living… And if we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant will prove to be our executioner.” — Omar Bradely
I will trudge it out from humanity’s desirous delimmas to Jesus’ desired resolution, darkness to light, in fire and dreams, all for Jesus’ ultimate delight. The primary focus of my work is not concerned with the conviction of sins but rather with the approach to the Spirit, who is the Spirit of Jesus Christ (he who judges) and our Father (the One from whom all righteousness flows and returns). The myriad erant perspectives of sin (the way God’s enemey’s rearry their forces from age to age in humanity’s sins) are a momentary obstacle meant to kill, steal, and destroy in the maximum. But in “God’s time,” the enemy and their captives’ flithy redress is fleeting in the grand scheme.
Over the long haul, the Great fact is that growth in the Spirit is the maturation of faith and inasmuch as you attune to the Spiritual realities and experiences, you release and are released from the curse of sins in numinous mitigation (our Lord’s prayer), while Jesus Christ alone puts away the sins themselves. So by his Grace that the very disease, the leftover consquences and repricussions, take on a spiritual character, as a challenge to grow up. No other spirit nor people can do that, apart from those serving with(in) the Spirit sent by Jesus into his people: overcome all challenges to grow, heal, and fulfill His Logos according to our Father’s design for living.
But first, we begin, we must circumscribe the darkness and the power of a “special” people, in order to expose them in the light, so that the Light might scatter the power that underlies their fallen forms of godlessness. So that the Light may reorder all things and arrive in the fullness of time on his earth as he has in the heavens.
Delimmas: man’s towers
Please listen to Rabbi Gordon (5 minutes): Just to be clear of complaint… if you cannot accept the words of a rabbi for occasional instruction and edification, then you’ll have lasting problems with Jesus for your salvation. He is the Rabbi of rabbis.
Important divinely ordained spiritual principles to remember: God uses the devil and his forces to challenge the righteous, holy people. God’s holy people work in God’s good things to make them better, but evil challenges us and gives the righteous the opportunity to overcome. Conversely, to become the destroyer of God’s good things marks you as God’s enemy. You may present yourself as kind and gentle yet feelings of arrogance in pursuit of worldly power mean you are serving evil, by any name. Righteousness comes through repentance, as Jesus Christ called to you first and last during his first earthly ministry. Cast out the enemy in God’s house, his good work, because your eternal life is at risk. No matter what your authorities say, my God and my Lord will judge you by your hearts. Do not let the thoughts of your head or the work of your hands belie your hearts to be marked in service to the liar and destroyer or you will be destroyed with him. My God and Lord are always just and trustworthy, nothing is hidden from them so all souls will go to their true master.
Tower of Babel: The whole world had the same language and the same words. When they were migrating from the east, they came to a valley in the land of Shinar and settled there. They said to one another, “Come, let us mold bricks and harden them with fire.” They used bricks for stone, and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky, and so make a name for ourselves; otherwise we shall be scattered all over the earth.”
The Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the people had built. Then the Lord said: If now, while they are one people and all have the same language, they have started to do this, nothing they presume to do will be out of their reach. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that no one will understand the speech of another. So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel, because there the Lord confused the speech of all the world. From there the Lord scattered them over all the earth.”
Remember this portion concerning what you have built up from earthworks to pierce the heavens and destroy the good work of the Creator. This power of the “special” greedy and arrogant people must be scattered before the Lord returns, or else…
They enjoyed three years of peace—no fighting between Aram and Israel. In the third year, Jehoshaphat king of Judah had a meeting with the king of Israel. Israel’s king remarked to his aides, “Do you realize that Ramoth Gilead belongs to us, and we’re sitting around on our hands instead of taking it back from the king of Aram?”
He turned to Jehoshaphat and said, “Will you join me in fighting for Ramoth Gilead?”Jehoshaphat said, “You bet. I’m with you all the way—my troops are your troops, my horses are your horses.” He then continued, “But before you do anything, ask God for guidance.”
The king of Israel got the prophets together—all four hundred of them—and put the question to them: “Should I attack Ramoth Gilead? Or should I hold back?” “Go for it,” they said. “God will hand it over to the king.”
But Jehoshaphat dragged his heels: “Is there still another prophet of God around here we can consult?” The king of Israel told Jehoshaphat, “As a matter of fact, there is still one such man. But I hate him. He never preaches anything good to me, only doom, doom, doom—Micaiah son of Imlah.” “The king shouldn’t talk about a prophet like that,” said Jehoshaphat. So the king of Israel ordered one of his men, “On the double! Get Micaiah son of Imlah.”
Meanwhile, the king of Israel and Jehoshaphat were seated on their thrones, dressed in their royal robes, resplendent in front of the Samaria city gates. All the prophets were staging a prophecy-performance for their benefit. Zedekiah son of Kenaanah had even made a set of iron horns, and brandishing them called out, “God’s word! With these horns you’ll gore Aram until there’s nothing left of him!” All the prophets chimed in, “Yes! Go for Ramoth Gilead! An easy victory! God’s gift to the king!”
The messenger who went to get Micaiah said, “The prophets have all said Yes to the king. Make it unanimous—vote Yes!” But Micaiah said, “As surely as God lives, what God says, I’ll say.”
With Micaiah before him, the king asked him, “So Micaiah—do we attack Ramoth Gilead, or do we hold back?” “Go ahead,” he said. “An easy victory. God’s gift to the king.” “Not so fast,” said the king. “How many times have I made you promise under oath to tell me the truth and nothing but the truth?”
“All right,” said Micaiah, “since you insist.
I saw all of Israel scattered over the hills,
sheep with no shepherd.
Then God spoke: ‘These poor people
have no one to tell them what to do.
Let them go home and do
the best they can for themselves.’”
Then the king of Israel turned to Jehoshaphat, “See! What did I tell you? He never has a good word for me from God, only doom.” Micaiah kept on: “I’m not done yet; listen to God’s word:
I saw God enthroned,
and all the angel armies of heaven
Standing at attention
ranged on his right and his left.
And God said, ‘How can we seduce Ahab
into attacking Ramoth Gilead?’
Some said this,
and some said that.
Then a bold angel stepped out,
stood before God, and said,
‘I’ll seduce him.’
‘And how will you do it?’ said God.
‘Easy,’ said the angel,
‘I’ll get all the prophets to lie.’
‘That should do it,’ said God.
‘On your way—seduce him!’
“And that’s what has happened. God filled the mouths of your puppet prophets with seductive lies. God has pronounced your doom.”
Just then Zedekiah son of Kenaanah came up and punched Micaiah in the nose, saying, “Since when did the Spirit of God leave me and take up with you?” Micaiah said, “You’ll know soon enough; you’ll know it when you’re frantically and futilely looking for a place to hide.”
The king of Israel had heard enough: “Get Micaiah out of here! Turn him over to Amon the city magistrate and to Joash the king’s son with this message, ‘King’s orders: Lock him up in jail; keep him on bread and water until I’m back in one piece.’” Micaiah said, “If you ever get back in one piece, I’m no prophet of God.” He added,“When it happens, O people, remember where you heard it!”
The king of Israel and Jehoshaphat king of Judah attacked Ramoth Gilead. The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Wear my kingly robe; I’m going into battle disguised.” So the king of Israel entered the battle in disguise. Meanwhile, the king of Aram had ordered his chariot commanders (there were thirty-two of them): “Don’t bother with anyone, whether small or great; go after the king of Israel and him only.”
When the chariot commanders saw Jehoshaphat they said, “There he is! The king of Israel!” and took after him. Jehoshaphat yelled out, and the chariot commanders realized they had the wrong man—it wasn’t the king of Israel after all. They let him go. Just then someone, without aiming, shot an arrow randomly into the crowd and hit the king of Israel in the chink of his armor. The king told his charioteer, “Turn back! Get me out of here—I’m wounded.”
All day the fighting continued, hot and heavy. Propped up in his chariot, the king watched from the sidelines. He died that evening. Blood from his wound pooled in the chariot. As the sun went down, shouts reverberated through the ranks, “Abandon camp! Head for home! The king is dead!” The king was brought to Samaria and there they buried him. They washed down the chariot at the pool of Samaria where the town whores bathed, and the dogs lapped up the blood, just as God’s word had said.
The devil re-arrays his powers from age to age to better seduce and destroy the arrogant. The false prophets and vainglorious teachers fail to grasp this fundamental principle threaded throughout the Word of God. So, God used them and lying spirts to challenge a “special” people and they failed too… so far. The enemy is elemental and subtle and offered the same deceptions he did to Christ, but “special” people still accept Satan on all three counts… grasping at power and choosing affluence for worldly rule, and they still tempt my Lord, their claimed God. Satan is wicked not stupid; he would not appear in this age as he had before. All their prophets’ schemes arose from the wars of past ages, not this present one.
Repent do not be destroyed with the false prophets and their masters. And if “Nicolae Carpathia” ever shows up, that’s on me, so I’ll go punch him in the throat and crush his balls while I step over his dying corpse. Sorted! Do you really think the enemy would make it that easy?
Recall the Temptation of Jesus, the only Lord of all things: Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. He fasted for forty days and forty nights,and afterwards he was hungry. The tempter approached and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become loaves of bread.” He said in reply, “It is written:
‘One does not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God.’”
Then the devil took him to the holy city, and made him stand on the parapet of the temple, and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down. For it is written:
‘He will command his angels concerning you’
and ‘with their hands they will support you,
lest you dash your foot against a stone.’”
Jesus answered him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord, your God, to the test.’” Then the devil took him up to a very high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in their magnificence, and he said to him, “All these I shall give to you, if you will prostrate yourself and worship me.” At this, Jesus said to him, “Get away, Satan! It is written:
‘The Lord, your God, shall you worship
and him alone shall you serve.’”
Then the devil left him and, behold, angels came and ministered to him.
Who said that anyone claiming Jesus Christ as their Master (by lived example) could respond differently to these demonic offers today? Turn from those devils and liars and ally with the Ministry of my Lord’s angels, by/in obedience to our standard, Jesus Christ.
Today’s material, last dark tower for earthly powers
To begin, I apologize if this is news to you, a “special” people failed or rejected doing anything about it over 14 years ago, nothing beyond transitory lip service anyway… but do not fear, nothing escapes God. They will be dealt with justly in due course. To those who this word is new, you don’t have 14 more years to waste. I would not wait even 14 more minutes, but don’t panic. I am here to tell you that anyone can be rescued to union with Messiah Jesus, if you trust God and clean house, each according to their willingness and honesty. We didn’t get here overnight but we need to take steps, big or small, everyday.
Please listen to Rabbi Raskin (28 minutes):
We outlined the structures of apostacsy that give form to godlessness in previous posts. Remember all the willy waving, er rape and murder? Now, the power of death and lying spirits that took captive a “special” people, who still desire still to be giants upon the earth, must be exposed then dispersed. Jesus Christ will bring the Right summation to all things, after the oppressive and destructive regime of economic worship of these people is brought down.
It is the power of the leauge of nimrods who suceeded the fall of earth’s last great empire. Their uncritical fans and sycophantic prophets are wrong about more than just the beast and the purpose of Grace… they never even admitted theirs’ was the last empire either. But fear not, because they also failed to incorporate the major spiritual principle concerning God’s character. No matter how the enemy shuffles the cards, God is always present to offer peace and rescue to those who earnestly seek him, no matter the depths of their depravity wrought from spiritual illnesses. The battle we are called to is spiritual, not their obssesive contest of issues concerning material culture. In the Spirit, ours is always a plan of peace, sacrfice, and fidelity in the material to purify our spirits in witness to the oppositional powers.
Below is the counterfeit dark circle of Satan, presently ruling the entire earth materially empowered by spiritual famine and sickness. This filty power is meant to mock the Holy Spirit’s last disclosures to humanity, materially destroy our Father’s favored adorment, and diminsh the souls of Jesus’ true Bride. Again, we present the seducing power that kills, both hands and heads, and has driven a “special” people to the brink of eternal destruction. It is the last dark tower that humanity will raise to blaspheme its Creator. With its base within the earth, they have ripped the skies all about the earth… and it came as a dream of fire by fallen angels and lying spirits to complete the arrogance of men.
This age knows it by a human knowledge, by an abuse of man’s power to name angels, the benzine ring: 6 hydrogen, 6 carbon, 6 strong bonds (12 elemental wings as material body), “6-6-6” is it’s notation. It is the archangel of waste in the last age of fallen humanity ruling over a defiled earth– the last abomination, the global false king for desolation, brought up from beneath the earth just to be burned, after God struck it down ages ago, empowered exclusively by the lusts of men that destroys all life just as it is raised just to be destroyed by fire.
Kekule’s Dark Dream: It was very much the same with the Benzene Theory. During my stay in Ghent, Belgium, I occupied pleasant bachelor quarters in the main street. My study, however, was in a narrow alleyway and had during the day time no light. For a chemist who spends the hours of daylight in the laboratory this was no disadvantage. I was sitting there engaged in writing my text-book; but it wasn’t going very well; my mind was on other things. I turned my chair toward the fireplace and sank into a doze.
Again the atoms were flitting before my eyes. Smaller groups now kept modestly in the background. My mind’s eye, sharpened by repeated visions of a similar sort, now distinguished larger structures of varying forms. Long rows frequently close together, all, in movement, winding and turning like serpents. And see! What was that? One of the serpents seized its own tail and the form whirled mockingly before my eyes. I came awake like a flash of lightning. This time also I spent the remainder of the night working out the consequences of the hypothesis.
If we learn to dream, gentlemen, then we shall perhaps find truth
—To him who forgoes thought,
Truth seems to come unsought;
He gets it without labor. —
We must take care, however, not to publish our dreams before submitting them to proof by the waking mind. “Countless germs of mental life fill the realm of space but only in a few rare minds do they find soil for their development; in them the idea, of which no one knows whence it came, lives as an active process.” As I have told you before, at certain times certain ideas are in the air. We hear now from Liebig that the germs of ideas are like the spores of bacilli which fill the atmosphere. Why did the germs of the Structural and Benzene ideas, which have been in the air for a period of twenty-five years, find a soil particularly favorable to their development in my head?— http://web.mit.edu/redingtn/www/netadv/SP20151130.html
The new understanding of benzene, and hence of all aromatic compounds, proved to be so important for both pure and applied chemistry after 1865 that in 1890 the German Chemical Society organized an elaborate appreciation in Kekulé’s honor, celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of his first benzene paper. Here Kekulé spoke of the creation of the theory. He said that he had discovered the ring shape of the benzene molecule after having a reverie or day-dream of a snake seizing its own tail (this is an ancient symbol known as the ouroboros). — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_Kekul%C3%A9
“That’s what this generation is like: You may think you have cleaned out the junk from your lives and gotten ready for God, but you weren’t hospitable to my kingdom message, and now all the devils are moving back in.”
Do not misunderstand me, I preach only the Gospel of my Jesus Christ crucified. You need to read John 3:16 right. His Sacrafice is first and foremost about His order of all things (cosmos), then, collaterally with trusworthiness (any) everyone may join into reconciliation. Reading yourself into the true Gospel as the primary or exclusive cause of his suffering is a common abuse of a most basic scripture. You have to really stretch the meaning of cosmos and ignore the structure of the text. God is about his glory, not yours, not unless and until you align with that same will for his Glory, which no creature will share in… eternal life upon that crystal ceiling is the best anyone can hope for… If you claim otherwise, then you have one hell of a fall coming.
To me John 3:16 is a one line catacheism that requires a lifetime to unfurl. First, I’m perteptually awed by what God has done and what my Lord did in life, death, and resurrection for his right governance of all things in summation. Second, I learn real grace, really amazing on his behalf, because I know that I’m barely a comma in a footnote within a library too vast too imagine, yet he still invites me to read all his books. Lastly, because of that grace I’m encouraged and invited to endure all things, in a covenantal faith, like he did, from all people with humility and patience, seeking only to reflect his gracious work in me… only for his reason, not my own interest, that he may attune me in my petty sufferings within the Great Forge of his creative heart. It is a death sentence for me and my way to follow him and his way for eternal life in his divine reharmonizing of all things and everyone else. Even when he raises me, time and again, it is never about me, always less about me. Grace cannot be a badge for me to flash in pride if I am not there. For me, Grace is evidence left in wake of his divine action of where I once was.
But we see, the lost and the sinners see, everyone sees the church of the harlot’s reading. Drunk, choking, and adorned in the blood saints yet shedding none of her own. Wow, they ride high and put themselves first in the passage… all of God’s work and works, the whole story, has led up to being about them. They claim to be already high and lifted up. Grace is a badge to prove all claims and all things are about them, and it their a licence to dictate eternally no matter what they do. Then they argue or apologize that all others must be like them or their neon god will smite and judge everyone else. They endlessly sell the image of the sufferings of Jesus Christ like mature apostles while sitting painlessly in their affluence. Yet, in the very next minute, they rise up to whine and stomp their feet like spoiled brats and demand that their false fathers protect them from the unimaginable pain of being paid to bake a cake for someone they were taught to reject by liars. To them John 3:16 is a flimsy banner, a decrorative token or an enchanting tasliment, to veil a “special,” lethal kind of spiritual arrogance that justifies all their acts against all others, only amongst only themselves. In truth, nothing will ever be about them again because nothing of them will survive the Fire. And even worse will come to their low-filter prophets and vain-glourious teachers because nothing about them is right for sacrifice.
Not enough? Too edgy? Then I call a second witness, God’s longest speech from the Word’s oldest Wisdom, please read Job 38-41. Man, do you see yourself in there? Can you see how small you really are in the big picture? God responds to a man, but where does He place Job in the order of all things? How does Job feel and respond? Do you think yourself more trustworthy or greater than Job, even with repentance? If so, man, prepare for the trials of Job because they are upon you. Look on your works and despair because God is displeased with them. At best, the Spirit calls them “incomplete,” and that’s on a hard curve. I am talking a Satchel Paige curve!
I was ordered to be personal, not too pedantic here (maybe later somewhere else). But yes, the number and image is also about past wicked men and their puppet priests, but their age has long passed. Satan is not stupid. So, the enemy rearrayed and God gave them different names, but they remain the same in the type of their works: greed, rule, death and destruction all by bad faith in temptation of God’s Word and contempt for his good works.
In God’s real stories it is always about types for accurate identification, over time the signed and signifiers recombine for actualized meaning (material fruits) according to Spiritual principles. In this way it remains an honest test of every person’s conscience and spirit, no matter the age… and yet God has never changed, not one aspect, not a single jot or tiddle. He is so freaking amazing! Who else but God could unfurl such a plan?!
John saw telescopically, through a few patterns superimposed across time, the most misundertsood dimension. We bumped into each other before, and I feel for that beloved, ecstatic hippie because there’s no way that any first century eastern-meditteraian mind could have adquately concieved the process by which myraid exotic and extinct forms of life, their spirit images become set free in mid-air by oblation… all so wicked people and self-absorbed churches could live in affulence and oppression over the least of the earth. The background illumination from the incandescent alga burn off alone is overhelming in sight. I am amazed he did as well as he did with his descriptions.
Still not sure? Well then, ah… you might just be made for the Fire. I get it. I relate and understand that you’re spiritually ill, so I am here to burn it into the conscience of all that anyone can recover if they are honest. As the Lord of spirits comes in to rest in fullness of his time, I hope and pray that all are given enough time to turn, yet I know that it is written that many will not. So I grieve.
Personally, we’ll return to Shiloh… In the mid-eighties the oil and gas companies really turned the screws in that neck of the woods. My grandfather and a few others fought for a time but Satan’s forces then were much greater and more insidious than the Nazi’s, and even more destructive. First the ground water was destroyed. Then the artesian wells were posioned. Then the lakes became toxic and most of the fish were killed off. Finally, the woods were destroyed and the creatures were scattered as even more pumps came in upon fields of gravel. They destroyed life, made a desert, and called it a really profitable deal… ‘good for everybody!’ Pax Americana come home to brood and rot and trash. The last and greatest victims of every empire are it’s native inhabitants of the homeland, just ask all the “good Gremans.” Here the death is more than material; the worst effects are spiritual and primarily within the ones claiming to be the most spiritual.
I have always feared judgment and prayed for sinners. But my God and my Lord have done a very interesting work in my heart over the years. And today, as I write this post, I must confess that a holy sense of comfort, and the judgment of many that I came out of is not causing me to lose sleep any longer. You must see that my Lord is enthroned now in the very place where he judged the first great tower, and I want to see him move… and God help me, he has made me okay with any time and any way in which it pleases himself, even if it pleases no other, to drop the hammer. I couldn’t say that 14 years ago, even though I had been already rated by multiple agencies as ‘focused and dynamic’ even in ‘the most kenetic circumstances.’ So I am ready. Are you? Better check yourself before you wreck yourself man, the time for honoring yourself is over, especially if you have blasphemed the name of Jesus Christ to do it. Honor God, now.
I am simply a co-worshipper, so I have great empathy. Perhaps that’s why I am the worst of men, so that there will not be a single person that I cannot identify with in all their depravity. For example, just a couple of years ago I was at a conference with a good church fellow who paid for my dinner, the whole group in fact. By all human accounts he is a “godly man.” Kind and friendly, engaging and often grateful, he’s a great guy to visit. Mid-way through dinner I learned he had gained his wealth in oil and gas, not unusal in Houston. And I know he gave money and time to the church, a decent church too. When I shared the story of Shiloh, in a kind and comfortable way (I can be charming if the situation affords), he became sullen. He had a hard time facing me but did not argue the facts. He was ashamed, and that’s good because we can fix that with time and action. He might even shine in time. I would be fully committed to that. But if he had become proud and denied the truth to protect his ego and defend his insults, then we’d have a different issue before the court:
And if some bullying Assyrian shows up,
invades and violates our land, don’t worry.
We’ll put him in his place, send him packing,
and watch his every move.
Shepherd-rule will extend as far as needed,
to Assyria and all other Nimrod-bullies.
Our shepherd-ruler will save us from old or new enemies,
from anyone who invades or violates our land.
Your legacy? Are you going to be the last generation to prop-up nimrod bullies who destroy the land or the third generation to usher in Shepard rule? Death or Life? Will you be the last of the darkness or among the first to host the Light?
Do as you please, it is your life and personal will to cast lots with. But as for me and mine, we’ll push as hard as possible, as long as we have breath, to cleanse a place, a people, and a faith to joyously host the returning Light.
We’ve had the worst harvests in 25 years, and even worse… too many of the worst churches in annals of human history. So now, we are transtioning from the captivity of self-will to the freedom of God’s Will. Despoil Eygpt if you please but you won’t need any of those things… their allure should begin to dim, in dawning righteousness.
Two years passed and Pharaoh had a dream: He was standing by the Nile River. Seven cows came up out of the Nile, all shimmering with health, and grazed on the marsh grass. Then seven other cows, all skin and bones, came up out of the river after them and stood by them on the bank of the Nile. The skinny cows ate the seven healthy cows. Then Pharaoh woke up.
He went back to sleep and dreamed a second time: Seven ears of grain, full-bodied and lush, grew out of a single stalk. Then seven more ears grew up, but these were thin and dried out by the east wind. The thin ears swallowed up the full, healthy ears. Then Pharaoh woke up—another dream.
When morning came, he was upset. He sent for all the magicians and sages of Egypt. Pharaoh told them his dreams, but they couldn’t interpret them to him.
The head cupbearer then spoke up and said to Pharaoh, “I just now remembered something—I’m sorry, I should have told you this long ago. Once when Pharaoh got angry with his servants, he locked me and the head baker in the house of the captain of the guard. We both had dreams on the same night, each dream with its own meaning. It so happened that there was a young Hebrew slave there with us; he belonged to the captain of the guard. We told him our dreams and he interpreted them for us, each dream separately. Things turned out just as he interpreted. I was returned to my position and the head baker was impaled.”
Pharaoh at once sent for Joseph. They brought him on the run from the jail cell. He cut his hair, put on clean clothes, and came to Pharaoh. “I dreamed a dream,” Pharaoh told Joseph. “Nobody can interpret it. But I’ve heard that just by hearing a dream you can interpret it.” Joseph answered, “Not I, but God. God will set Pharaoh’s mind at ease.”
Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “In my dream I was standing on the bank of the Nile. Seven cows, shimmering with health, came up out of the river and grazed on the marsh grass. On their heels seven more cows, all skin and bones, came up. I’ve never seen uglier cows anywhere in Egypt. Then the seven skinny, ugly cows ate up the first seven healthy cows. But you couldn’t tell by looking—after eating them up they were just as skinny and ugly as before. Then I woke up.
“In my second dream I saw seven ears of grain, full-bodied and lush, growing out of a single stalk, and right behind them, seven other ears, shriveled, thin, and dried out by the east wind. And the thin ears swallowed up the full ears. I’ve told all this to the magicians but they can’t figure it out.”
Joseph said to Pharaoh, “Pharaoh’s two dreams both mean the same thing. God is telling Pharaoh what he is going to do. The seven healthy cows are seven years and the seven healthy ears of grain are seven years—they’re the same dream. The seven sick and ugly cows that followed them up are seven years and the seven scrawny ears of grain dried out by the east wind are the same—seven years of famine.
“The meaning is what I said earlier: God is letting Pharaoh in on what he is going to do. Seven years of plenty are on their way throughout Egypt. But on their heels will come seven years of famine, leaving no trace of the Egyptian plenty. As the country is emptied by famine, there won’t be even a scrap left of the previous plenty—the famine will be total. The fact that Pharaoh dreamed the same dream twice emphasizes God’s determination to do this and do it soon.
“So, Pharaoh needs to look for a wise and experienced man and put him in charge of the country. Then Pharaoh needs to appoint managers throughout the country of Egypt to organize it during the years of plenty. Their job will be to collect all the food produced in the good years ahead and stockpile the grain under Pharaoh’s authority, storing it in the towns for food. This grain will be held back to be used later during the seven years of famine that are coming on Egypt. This way the country won’t be devastated by the famine.”
This seemed like a good idea to Pharaoh and his officials. Then Pharaoh said to his officials, “Isn’t this the man we need? Are we going to find anyone else who has God’s spirit in him like this?” So Pharaoh said to Joseph, “You’re the man for us. God has given you the inside story—no one is as qualified as you in experience and wisdom. From now on, you’re in charge of my affairs; all my people will report to you. Only as king will I be over you.”
So Pharaoh commissioned Joseph: “I’m putting you in charge of the entire country of Egypt.” Then Pharaoh removed his signet ring from his finger and slipped it on Joseph’s hand. He outfitted him in robes of the best linen and put a gold chain around his neck. He put the second-in-command chariot at his disposal, and as he rode people shouted “Bravo!”…
…During the next seven years of plenty the land produced bumper crops. Joseph gathered up the food of the seven good years in Egypt and stored the food in cities. In each city he stockpiled surplus from the surrounding fields. Joseph collected so much grain—it was like the sand of the ocean!—that he finally quit keeping track…
…Then Egypt’s seven good years came to an end and the seven years of famine arrived, just as Joseph had said. All countries experienced famine; Egypt was the only country that had bread. When the famine spread throughout Egypt, the people called out in distress to Pharaoh, calling for bread. He told the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph. Do what he tells you.” As the famine got worse all over the country, Joseph opened the store-houses and sold emergency supplies to the Egyptians. The famine was very bad. Soon the whole world was coming to buy supplies from Joseph. The famine was bad all over.
But wait! The goodness in the story comes in return…
Joseph couldn’t hold himself in any longer, keeping up a front before all his attendants. He cried out, “Leave! Clear out—everyone leave!” So there was no one with Joseph when he identified himself to his brothers. But his sobbing was so violent that the Egyptians couldn’t help but hear him. The news was soon reported to Pharaoh’s palace.
Joseph spoke to his brothers: “I am Joseph. Is my father really still alive?” But his brothers couldn’t say a word. They were speechless—they couldn’t believe what they were hearing and seeing.
“Come closer to me,” Joseph said to his brothers. They came closer. “I am Joseph your brother whom you sold into Egypt. But don’t feel badly, don’t blame yourselves for selling me. God was behind it. God sent me here ahead of you to save lives. There has been a famine in the land now for two years; the famine will continue for five more years—neither plowing nor harvesting. God sent me on ahead to pave the way and make sure there was a remnant in the land, to save your lives in an amazing act of deliverance. So you see, it wasn’t you who sent me here but God. He set me in place as a father to Pharaoh, put me in charge of his personal affairs, and made me ruler of all Egypt.
“Hurry back to my father. Tell him, ‘Your son Joseph says: I’m master of all of Egypt. Come as fast as you can and join me here. I’ll give you a place to live in Goshen where you’ll be close to me—you, your children, your grandchildren, your flocks, your herds, and anything else you can think of. I’ll take care of you there completely. There are still five more years of famine ahead; I’ll make sure all your needs are taken care of, you and everyone connected with you—you won’t want for a thing.’
“Look at me. You can see for yourselves, and my brother Benjamin can see for himself, that it’s me, my own mouth, telling you all this. Tell my father all about the high position I hold in Egypt, tell him everything you’ve seen here, but don’t take all day—hurry up and get my father down here.”
Then Joseph threw himself on his brother Benjamin’s neck and wept, and Benjamin wept on his neck. He then kissed all his brothers and wept over them. Only then were his brothers able to talk with him.
The story was reported in Pharaoh’s palace: “Joseph’s brothers have come.” It was good news to Pharaoh and all who worked with him. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Tell your brothers, ‘This is the plan: Load up your pack animals; go to Canaan, get your father and your families and bring them back here. I’ll settle you on the best land in Egypt—you’ll live off the fat of the land.’
“Also tell them this: ‘Here’s what I want you to do: Take wagons from Egypt to carry your little ones and your wives and load up your father and come back. Don’t worry about having to leave things behind; the best in all of Egypt will be yours.’” And they did just that, the sons of Israel. Joseph gave them the wagons that Pharaoh had promised and food for the trip. He outfitted all the brothers in brand-new clothes, but he gave Benjamin three hundred pieces of silver and several suits of clothes. He sent his father these gifts: ten donkeys loaded with Egypt’s best products and another ten donkeys loaded with grain and bread, provisions for his father’s journey back.
Then he sent his brothers off. As they left he told them, “Take it easy on the journey; try to get along with each other.” They left Egypt and went back to their father Jacob in Canaan. When they told him, “Joseph is still alive—and he’s the ruler over the whole land of Egypt!” he went numb; he couldn’t believe his ears. But the more they talked, telling him everything that Joseph had told them and when he saw the wagons that Joseph had sent to carry him back, the blood started to flow again—their father Jacob’s spirit revived. Israel said, “I’ve heard enough—my son Joseph is still alive. I’ve got to go and see him before I die.”
Solution: God’s Ladders
Finally, the upstroke, what is all this family folklore about a ladder and angels from the portion above in this post? There are many answers and a few good ones. For this discussion, we’ll connect and contrast the portion with another, often neglected passage that seems short and simple, but those are the best places to slow down and dig in. Nothing in the writings should be ignored. It is wise to appreciate and attune to the small things, from applied chemistry to biblical narrative, if it is true that “we don’t want to miss a single thing.” This least one is hung between two that are often conspicuously discussed portions.
My rabbis taught me to connect the overlooked bits with other similar points, and let then narrative raise the meanings. Let’s begin with the least then close with the first, big one above. I’ll keep it as short as I can so that, the pattern, not the terms, can arise and multiply with the other stories presented in this post. The pattern is repeating today in a new way, but in God’s plan that is a dynamic pattern he established before he created us, so he, only he, might recreate us in like manner in the seasons to come.
And Jacob went his way. Angels of God met him. When Jacob saw them he said, “Oh! God’s Camp!” And he named the place Mahanaim (Campground).
Short and very sweet, isn’t it? What are the parallels and what are the differences with the one at the top of the post? Here are just a few for meaning because brevity is the soul of wit and this post is already so long it might be called witless in form, but we want substance.
Jacob is on the move. He’s going from point A to point B first and then returns years later to point A from point B. On both occasions, there is a middle ground, a place in between places, in which he encounters angels. On the journey from home to a yet unknown place of foreign enrichment and alien blessings. He names the middle ground “place” and there is a ladder, God’s ladder, not a human construction, with angels traveling like him. But their trips are vertical not horizontal. Years later in return, there’s no mention of the ladder but he encounters angels, not a place. All of them are moving for God’s purpose in a spiritual place he names “camp.” Where’d the ladder go? How can a man interact with angels this way?
Both times Jacob is moving in proper authority, so the journey is important and it will occur according to the plans of the only proper authority if Jacob is obedient. Some teachers argue that every challenge Jacob overcomes arose by departing form the plan set before him. Today we’d call that “mission creep,” a potentially catastrophic error that occurs when a servant loses sight of his master’s established objective for any reason. In both lands he had fathers as authorities. Interestingly, it is his own father who blesses him and sends him from his homeland to point B, burdened somewhat like a punishment, as he was at loggerheads about deception and familial rank with his brother. Interestingly, when Jacob returns to his homeland, it is God alone who orders him to return, not his father-in-law, the proper authority in the land of enrichment. In fact, he leaves his in-law’s land, again, with some seeming deception and irreverence to familial rank. But the second time he would’ve preferred to stay and not take the journey fearing more troubles with his family of origin. But both times Jacob clearly acts according to God’s will, despite his fear of loss.
My theory, based on my experience and hope, is God was exposing things were “a miss” in both places even though they were run by the proper powers that be. And he was doing something surprising and wonderful for God, as long as he struggled to serve God under imperfect authorities…Why? What’s God doing? Where’s the ladder? And what of these now “groupie” angels?
Let’s answer the questions in reverse… Jacob no longer just sees angels but he walks with them in order, which could only be by God’s will. It certainly wasn’t a familial desire at either place. He moved from a place of observation to participation in God’s will and solely for God’s agenda, obviously apart from, yet in, his travels under other authorities for their personal agendas. Jacob learned God’s agenda and movements. Afterall, it was he who sent out the messengers in return. Believe me, there is no better teacher of God’s will than the acts of angels who mostly remain silent, while even “righteous” people, who seldom shut up, often twist off in dark ways with the powers that be. Angels do not fail in acts ordered, either glorious or terrible, because their separation from unrighteous angels has already occurred. All that obedience in spite of will of fallen, contested powers is for God’s renown.
The ladder? God, by his own acts and direction in trials and through service to fallen powers, made Jacob a ladder. Nonsense? I have it on the highest Authority. I can prove it by the way things worked out in the biblical stories across the history of God’s interactions with various “special” peoples. God wants to bless all people through a people obedient to him, beginning to end, in his own words throughout his Word and with his Word, Jesus… Alpha to Omega and back. It creates a chain of righteousness, a coveyance of blessing and promise fulfilment from God, through his people, and out to all peoples. Moreover, we know the angels didn’t change, but Jacob certainly did. The proof was in the promise of legacy imparted to Jacob. What Joseph did in the material, Jacob did in the spiritual, and Jesus is doing in both today. I am a witness to that activity and a servant to anyone who wants to know him.
Even more understanding can come from God’s ladder if we briefly contrast it with the towers of men. First and foremost, in the writings we know that men build towers for their own renown, some even put their name on it. In fact, one is right to say their desire to rule is embodied in that activity. Whether it was Babel or the cipher exposed again above, both towers embody the disobedience of men to make a way for themselves from earth to rule in a heaven of vain imagination, a utopia, a name that actually means “nowhere.” And if you participate in those works that is where you will reside forever because you are deeply committed to a corrupt connection between heaven and earth that presents an abomination before the Creator. Even the idea that a human, using a human language, could build their own connection with God is a wicked ideological tower of its own as a corruption of God’s Word, as if any creature could ever compel its Creator to act…it boggles the right-minded.
One of the greatest horrors I’ve had to learn to suffer and live with is the visible truth to me that many American churches have no angels over them. In fact, over 50 years I’ve seen fewer and fewer as the messages of “glory” about the powers that be have occulted God’s message and Spiritual linkage. Who is the only one who can separate you from God? Only you can. The enemy gives tantalizing offers, just as he did to my Lord. The enemy does it all the time but people have to choose the disobedience to God to bear all this filthy fruit. Oh, I know there’s world full doctrinal ego-defense out there for all the wrong reasons, but that’s not God, it is a rape of scripture, and it certainly wasn’t Jesus when he took on flesh.
A value, no matter how divine or wicked, requires human activity to manifest (to fruit) in the world, for better or worse. It is great to announce erudite values and effete beliefs, but until and unless you die to self and follow Jesus you’re just a fool sallying about for your own name. Regardless to personal cost, the righteous embody Jesus only in the way Jesus acted, and that builds a name for God in the world… no matter what other powers do or say. The purpose of God’s linkage to his people is to act through them as a blessing to other people, not to brag about and announce their own blessedness. That deeper truth of Jacob’s ladder is the sap that blossomed into the Greatest Commandment.
The self-righteous abuse the smallest deposit of God’s Power that they were entrusted with to win their wars, fortify their towers, and plead for the restoration of their flesh. For 1700 years this has disturbed and driven away angles, so God’s Power has receded from them to the point of cessation and rumor. But there is a remnant, there is always a remnant, who remain on point working like a rhizome, within and below, like humility Himself, manifesting miracles out of sight of the wicked and beyond the minds of corrupt churchly authorities. The power of God is not stomping about the earth starting wars, defiling the earth, and advertising his greatness like the giants of old or the disobedient elect gentiles of today. That is not God’s way. Why would he act out of such insecurity? He never willy waves!
God’s Power is coming afresh like the dew of heaven, each drop directed by angels to the trustworthy, or like an IV administered by the great Physician for sure, steady, and sustained growth… to be vouchsafe, for the fruition in those the Holy Spirit may trust. This is a surprise to the enemy, the abusive ones who crave earthly power, and craven prophets who got rich on lies. God’s plans always are strange fire to them. Those that plan tommorow’s battles like yesterday’s wars always lose. At present it is not a waterfall, but Jesus’ returning ministry will end up being a billion times more impressive. You must understand that God’s Power is not about winning wars, Jesus already did that. The Spirit of God is coming to rest in the truely faithful now so that one day his people, a people unsullied by earthly grandiosity and pride, will end all wars, be God’s ladders, and restore all things to his order. It is happening, it may take a long time and the wicked may even appear to regain some “advantage” at times and in places, but those pyrrhic victories will only further insure their ultimate shame and eternal destruction. It is happening now or I would not be writing to you now.
Personally I did the opposite of worldly wisdom. When the inherited authority came to me, I quickly sold the mineral rights to restore my family of origin. Many have called me a fool because of the “riches” I gave up. But dear reader, I am the richest man, in God’s eyes, that I’ve ever met. My doctor tells me that if I were any fatter it would be a sin, and my “supervisors” tell me that if I were any happier I’d probably just walk away and take a nap, instead of following orders. I finally have everything I ever wanted and too much more. I never have to live or die for the wicked or the disobedient elect (in my unique but not one of a kind role). I can just walk away and that is a right witness for my God and right service to my Lord. I can feel good about acts now that I once felt as a burden. I serve and witness only so that Jesus may have better. Sure, I don’t have all the trappings held by many of my neighbors, but I am free and growing in Love every day. That is a life’s work and retirement plan all in one. I’ve rejoiced and been honored to work with the angels and “unclean people” in service to my Lord and my God all my days, even in sufferings. You would be too, and now is your time.
Publically I encourage you to work with those you think are wrong in authority, as I did for the disobedient elect, if they are doing God’s will concerning the beast and God’s creation. There is not another 14 years of grace for that tower, that power is bound for judgment and will be scattered economically as God scattered the linguistic power at Bable. Do not mark yourself for eternal damnation just to appear to be in the “right crowd” in this world. Jesus tells us in hard sayings what happens to that crowd, and he has many folds that crowd will never acknowledge. Believe Jesus, I beg of you all. Keep your feet on the ground and your head in heaven to be a ladder of spiritual blessing and material restoration, because the poor and humble will inherit the earth and all God’s riches, no matter what the “special” people in that ‘greatest crowd ever’ say. Know now, Jesus’ angel armies and a lot of peoples, Christian and many more others, who some Christians call “unclean” or “common,” have been out there doing the Lord’s work for decades now. In reality, most of the world and most Christians overseas already get all this… except the last, “special” ones. Who will you be numbered with?
I am here for the righteous… and anyone we might call ‘righteous curious,’ only as long as my God wills it. But for all of us there is only one standard for faith forever: it is obedeince to Christ, in his acts and to our Father’s commands. Jesus said that if love him, then you should know that already. From the garden to the last words of Jesus spoke to everyone in the bible, the elect mark themselves for judgment or reward, for better or worse, based on their obedience to God. Therefore we never brag about election or rule in this world, especially as our Kingdom now arrives and grows. Like our King, we are fully commited to service in our Father’s Kingdom. It’s the only place that matters. We do not judge sinners because Jesus came to serve them and to save any that might become curious enough about him. Did he not come to us all while we were and are sinners? We do not destroy God’s good work, instead we labor in Christ and with his Spirit to restore and reconcile without contingency.
Jesus tells everyone that ‘it is better to serve in heaven with one eye than rule in falleness with two eyes,’ all so we might glorify our Father. Better to be honored by God and despised by people that abuse His name than be loved by people who abuse His name to who make war on God, his work and design for all things. It is better to be consumed by Fire than rebel against your Creator. Disobedence always ends in the Fire. Obedience to God is refined in the same Fire. It never ends, for it is eternal life.
As my Lord promised to all long ago, he and his are now fulfilling the promise in a growing blaze:
“The servant who knows what his master wants and ignores it, or insolently does whatever he pleases, will be thoroughly thrashed. But if he does a poor job through ignorance, he’ll get off with a slap on the hand. Great gifts mean great responsibilities; greater gifts, greater responsibilities!
To Start a Fire
“I’ve come to start a fire on this earth—how I wish it were blazing right now! I’ve come to change everything, turn everything rightside up—how I long for it to be finished! Do you think I came to smooth things over and make everything nice? Not so. I’ve come to disrupt and confront! From now on, when you find five in a house, it will be—
Three against two,
and two against three;
Father against son,
and son against father;
Mother against daughter,
and daughter against mother;
Mother-in-law against bride,
and bride against mother-in-law.”
Then he turned to the crowd: “When you see clouds coming in from the west, you say, ‘Storm’s coming’—and you’re right. And when the wind comes out of the south, you say, ‘This’ll be a hot one’—and you’re right. Frauds! You know how to tell a change in the weather, so don’t tell me you can’t tell a change in the season, the God-season we’re in right now.”
Now, in the God-season, more than ever, please know there is only one standard to be pursued by any one claiming salvation in the name of Jesus, from the moment of conversion to the instant of perfection within his Ressurection, from lay person to leader, and no matter the role God assigns to each of us. But those selfish believers and every false messiah can be seen miles away, for none of them can approach this example. They reject his sufferings because they adore their own dark glories. Only Jesus lived and died perfectly, so he is the only judge of the living and the dead; it is by his own standard that all is weighed following him, both in rewards and punishments.
Jesus Took on the Status of a Slave
If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.
Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion. Because of that obedience, God lifted him high and honored him far beyond anyone or anything, ever, so that all created beings in heaven and on earth—even those long ago dead and buried—will bow in worship before this Jesus Christ, and call out in praise that he is the Master of all, to the glorious honor of God the Father.
No one can follow Jesus without worshippimg him right, but you can worship him a lot, a whole lot, without ever following him and that’s wrong. This is true simply because Jesus’ singular plea to anyone he ever calls is “follow me.” He never says “worship me.” Churches say it, but if none, or only a few, among their assembly are actually following Jesus, then he will judge those churches accordingly. He alone tempers judgment and weighs reward for those he calls solely by how they respond to his unique plea, not how they talk about his uniqueness.
Meanwhile the dead are being judged and I am willing to help anyone else that is willing to be re-made right by the Holy Spirit as part of reconciling the Law of Christ into our Father’s creation. Ours is strictly a volunteer army, as always. So sinners and those who call themselves elect are free to do as they please, some in obedience others in disobeience.
Praise of God the Creator
O my soul, bless God!
God, my God, how great you are!
beautifully, gloriously robed,
Dressed up in sunshine,
and all heaven stretched out for your tent.
You built your palace on the ocean deeps,
made a chariot out of clouds and took off on wind-wings.
You commandeered winds as messengers,
appointed fire and flame as ambassadors.
You set earth on a firm foundation
so that nothing can shake it, ever.
You blanketed earth with ocean,
covered the mountains with deep waters;
Then you roared and the water ran away—
your thunder crash put it to flight.
Mountains pushed up, valleys spread out
in the places you assigned them.
You set boundaries between earth and sea;
never again will earth be flooded.
You started the springs and rivers,
sent them flowing among the hills.
All the wild animals now drink their fill,
wild donkeys quench their thirst.
Along the riverbanks the birds build nests,
ravens make their voices heard.
You water the mountains from your heavenly cisterns;
earth is supplied with plenty of water.
You make grass grow for the livestock,
hay for the animals that plow the ground.
Oh yes, God brings grain from the land,
wine to make people happy,
Their faces glowing with health,
a people well-fed and hearty.
God’s trees are well-watered—
the Lebanon cedars he planted.
Birds build their nests in those trees;
look—the stork at home in the treetop.
Mountain goats climb about the cliffs;
badgers burrow among the rocks.
The moon keeps track of the seasons,
the sun is in charge of each day.
When it’s dark and night takes over,
all the forest creatures come out.
The young lions roar for their prey,
clamoring to God for their supper.
When the sun comes up, they vanish,
lazily stretched out in their dens.
Meanwhile, men and women go out to work,
busy at their jobs until evening.
What a wildly wonderful world, God!
You made it all, with Wisdom at your side,
made earth overflow with your wonderful creations.
Oh, look—the deep, wide sea,
brimming with fish past counting,
sardines and sharks and salmon.
Ships plow those waters,
and Leviathan, your pet dragon, romps in them.
All the creatures look expectantly to you
to give them their meals on time.
You come, and they gather around;
you open your hand and they eat from it.
If you turned your back,
they’d die in a minute—
Take back your Spirit and they die,
revert to original mud;
Send out your Spirit and they spring to life—
the whole countryside in bloom and blossom.
The glory of God—let it last forever!
Let God enjoy his creation!
He takes one look at earth and triggers an earthquake,
points a finger at the mountains, and volcanoes erupt.
Oh, let me sing to God all my life long,
sing hymns to my God as long as I live!
Oh, let my song please him;
I’m so pleased to be singing to God.
But clear the ground of sinners—
no more godless men and women!
O my soul, bless God!
Concluding confessions and hope for the next season with broader boarders…
So, the godless structures and power of a “special” people exposed covertly, again, only to spare some shame and encorage repentance, with their nimrod seemingly down, while his master, another nimrod, has been struck in the head by Michael to slow plans for their long schemed invasion; a plan that was made possible by the downed nimrod removing the stops (militarily and by ending the rule of the petrodollar) for other nimrods to invade the middle east for the beast… a slight of hand performed while “the greatest elect ever” were enchanted by moving a “post office” from one part of the greenzone to another. Spiritual blindness always ends in the abscence of stragegic understanding. Despite that, Mel and Michael have things well in hand for Jesus there, while here, Raphael and a few “other angels” have delivered a balm for the plauge as per divine plan/promise, not nimrod’s but he’ll try and put his name on it too. Not bad for one season, huh? All done neither too fast nor too slow and just in time for the season of Light, who is the only real promise keeper.
For complete disclosure I was shown many of these things decades ago. So, I am real earnest in grace and forgiveness now. Because only recently, for my humilty, Jesus told me that all the delay, rejection, and suffering was, in part, about his prepartions in me not just to make judgment simple. I’ve never known the dubious blessings of atheism nor chosing/constructing my own god. We need apologists, but I am the worst apologist. I am with the raised Rev. Lockridge, neither the disobedient elect nor death bed confessions are our “cup of tea,” but trust me, Lucifer be there to stake powerful claims on them in judgment. Believe me, it is best to avoid that situation whole hog or you might just soil your diapers.
I’ve only ever known One, the One no one else seems to talk about, the One they left behind in a rush to worldly riches and rule, so I talk to him and he to me. So much so that the weight of those sustained Disclosures across a lifetime led me to run in sin a few times. I’ve done things that made demons proud, but I knew I was sinning and why. Sound’s bad but it makes the necessity of repentance obivous and it’s articulation very simple. Also, Omar liked to covertly walk among the soliders on the frontline as long as possible before he ever developed an opinion to share with his old friend and commander Ike, because he wanted the truth and knew you go to war with the soilders you have, not the ones you want. Again, I was taught to adore the smallest things and plan for the least among us first.
Many I see refuse to see theirown sins, continue to play the righteous victim, and swear they’ll never be held accountable… and watch… they, the arsonists, will blame the fire department while the house burns down in the coming season. Devils always do… but I am not the Judge. I am a lowly officer of his court for help and guidance. So please, allow me to suggest that until you get the first thing right the last thing will never be right for you. Or please permit me to ask, if you cannot be faithful with the small things of earth, then how can you be trusted with the great things of heaven? I hope at least a few more might turn, for Jesus, but I’ve already exceeded my nominal quota and now I am being called out (praise Jesus!), beyond their isolated small worlds of hate, exclusion, and self-righteousness in which they have wrought so much death and desolation for Satan and his world of sin. I bid them adieus and good luck because I cannot bless them to curse God.
Don’t get me wrong, there will be many more challenges, some will even seem impregnable (been there, done that, got the t-shirt too), challenges to seperate the disobient from the sincere, the righteous from the frauds, but all in all… it’s been pretty fair reboot to the Greatest story and it’s best moments to come. In three and a half months, we’ve already far exceeded my expectations, based on what took three and a half years in secret singleness last time. Still a bit of a head scratcher… but I am greatful for it now, because only anti-christs are adored and exaulted from lying start to filthy finish.
First we all must pass through the sea of dark legacy, filled by a “special” poeple; its is their great natural experiment in human sacrfice to honor their gods, mammon and pride of self-rule. While the sober and rigtheous in the world looked on in terror and fear, for decades actually. I do not balme nimrod but all those who supported him until today. Yes, these human sacrifices they demand by their “rights” will scar generations (materially and spiritually in myriad ways), but the brunt of the eternal consequences will be on those people who kept making bad choices. In democracies, social debts like public health and war are all communally or nationally shared, whereas personal sin, those made by indidvidual choice, go on strictly indvidual accounts. But God will do something predicted yet unexpected, terrible yet glorious, through it all. We serve in sacrifice to mitigate the social sins and witness in humily about the individual sins, because that is what Jesus does. In the Kingdom there is no holy nation, only a holy people who heal all nations in service to all people.
I have been looking forward to raising my eyes again beyond the grim boarders of the contumacious elect in this next season. I don’t want to feed their collective narcissism beyond a warning, again, if only to alleviate my own fear for them. As I said before, I am not angry at any of them, but I am fearful for them because many are today in worse shape soteriologically than they were 14 years ago. For me, appearently, God used what I lamented so much then as the seal of our authenticity now, just like my awful spelling and confusing syntax. Believe me, repeatedly, I told Jesus to send someone else, a poet or bona fided scribe, but he wants to prove that our Father’s Kingdom isn’t about any of that.
In his Light, he makes me cry and keeps telling me that he only wants someones who have the story right in their hearts (where the unseen fruits of their heads and hands cannot be hidden) for the intimate things. Sure you many might be in heaven, but why settle for the cheap seats or risk hellfire outside? “Many are called but few are chosen”… all his sayings are true, so I blame him in my ignorance and he can take it. No one can ever be forced to love, or even like, Jesus enough to follow him… but my testimony remains that if you truly know him, not any one of the commoditized tyrannical knock-offs… If you know him for real, then over time you will only want to adore him more in your following, even on bad days and across seasons of seeming powerlessness… talk about an easy yolk and glourious contract.
Now facing the Light, I know all these things have been done just so that we may turn up joy and devoution to Jesus, beyond all these fallen walls that do not exist in his Kingdom, in the time to come globally. Please, let’s keep taking it easy and keep moving in humility to walk gently for God’s good earth, his house, and his glory alone. Darkness away, no feelings of arrogance and his filthy works allowed… all thanks and praises to the Lord Jesus Christ, now bring God honor and glory in his house at warp speed, but only factor 1, just to take it easy.
