Chapter 17 How Much Do We Believe? only what we want to? or what we must?
Understand, dear reader, that GOD is weary of sin, weary of hatred, weary of bloodshed, weary of the world loving evil and wickedness, and GOD is more than weary of His own pains and sufferings concerning Golgotha, and the great price He paid there, the sacrifice of His only begotten Son for the sins of the world! His whole being is exploding with anger, exploding with His own sufferings and agonies, exploding with His own love of this world that has turned itself over to all manners of sorceries, and sins, and wickedness’, and abominations. For the law is righteous. The truth is righteous. The laws of GOD from the beginning have always been righteous. To infer, or preach, or teach, that the Gentile is not under the laws of Moses, or the laws of righteousness, is an abomination indeed. To say the Gentile has never been under the laws of Moses, is blasphemy, for the laws of Moses are righteousness. All flesh ever born or created has been under the laws of righteousness, and under the divinity of a holy GOD who judges all iniquity. Men who know not GOD, false prophets are they, divine illusions and doctrines of peace and safety, fantasies, dreams, visions of lies that always say, Be at peace, brother. You shall see no judgment. Be at peace, sister, for you shall see no wrath. Be at peace, all believers, for you are not under the law, not under judgment, not under condemnation, and not under the guilt of a conscience that cannot be judged for knowing right from wrong, sin from holiness, nor evil from good. So, be at peace with GOD, children, for you shall see no judgment. Be happy. Be joyful. Be reconciled to GOD who shall not judge you in CHRIST.
The scriptures say, Because we are in CHRIST shall we be judged, as the whole world shall be judged, by the righteousness of CHRIST JESUS, (Acts 17:31 Because he (GOD) hath appointed a day, in the which, he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.) who is the perfect image of the law in flesh, the perfection of GOD’s righteousness in flesh, and that same righteousness that saved CHRIST JESUS shall save all men. That is the way! That is the truth! And that is the life that saves! And that is the resurrection unto life in CHRIST, righteousness. And GOD has given an assurance unto all men, a testimony unto all men, by raising CHRIST JESUS from the dead, that He shall judge the world and all men by that righteousness. We know that all men shall be judged, it is written, because GOD has declared it to be so by the raising of CHRIST from the dead.
Rom. 2:5-10 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of GOD; who will render to every man according to his deeds: to them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: but unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; but glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile. By no other avenue or way can or shall a man be saved from wrath, damnation and death, than by that way, righteousness, wrought in CHRIST, and perfected in CHRIST, His righteousness being the author and the finisher of our faith, and our salvation, the ending of our faith being the salvation of our souls. CHRIST JESUS is the ending of the law, the perfection of the law, the fulfillment of the law in flesh. And the ending of a perfected faith in CHRIST JESUS is the forming in the flesh, of the Son of GOD in us, CHRIST in us, the hope of eternal life, and the hope of the resurrection to life, which is righteousness! Rom. 8:3,4 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, GOD sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
As the scriptures testify of their own selves, All scripture is given for the instruction in righteousness. So, GOD sent His only begotten Son into the world, that all men might know, and might see, and might behold that righteousness that saves, and that only holiness that shall enter into the gates of heaven. 1st Pet. 1:3-9 Blessed be the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of GOD through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of JESUS CHRIST: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Rom. 10:4 For CHRIST is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
No man could obey the law perfectly, without sin, but had to have sacrifices for sin ministered upon the altar, to grant forgiveness, yet it could not cleanse the soul nor grant any power to be healed from the curse of sin, the curse being a power unable to be broken. Yet when the Son of GOD hung upon Golgotha and died, and shed His holy blood for a sacrifice and an atonement for the sins of the world, and all men, and all flesh, that curse and power was broken. Therefore, does it say, CHRIST is the ending of the law for we who believe. For we are given POWER! We are given power to overcome sin and become a son or daughter of GOD! And that power given will crucify our sins. It will purge our sins as by fire. It will scourge our sins as with salt on an open wound. It will preserve us as with smoke. It will grind us to powder and then form us again on the potter’s wheel into a new vessel, fit for His divine use in this world, and grant unto us immortality and eternal life, and that assurance is in that righteousness that is formed in us, that by no efforts of our own strength could we achieve. It will stripe us. It will wound us. It will bind up our wounds. It will be gentle. It will be harsh. It will never forsake us but will begin and complete our salvation’s in righteousness and truth. It will break us if we will not break ourselves. It will crush us if we will not yield to its authority and power. It will torment us if we do not follow. It will cajole us if we hesitate. It will depart us for a season if we grieve it. It will abandon us in a testing to eat of suffering and judgment if we do not repent and turn from it. It will keep us, guide us, smite us, heal us, do all things necessary to serve the truth and the Kingdom of GOD that we might enter into it and receive it unto our selves. It is a hard, hard taskmaster to the disobedient, and a gentle yoke to the obedient. It will teach a soul to depart evil or be turned over to it. But it will not abide disobedience. It will cause a soul to hate righteousness, or love it. It will cause a soul to turn away, or to follow. But it will not remain barren. The WORD does not go forth and come back void. It will save, or it will damn. It will do what it has been sent forth to do. Jn. 1:12,13 But as many as received him, (JESUS) to them gave he power to become the sons of GOD, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of GOD. We are saved His way, by His will, by His WORD, by His SPIRIT, by His righteousness, or we shall not be saved at all.
Chapter 18 Who Is Ordained To Unseal Revelation?
Rev. 5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6 And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne, and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, STOOD A LAMB AS IT HAD BEEN SLAIN, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of GOD sent forth into all the earth.
Look again and read it again . . . .verse 3 AND NO MAN IN HEAVEN, NOR IN EARTH, NEITHER UNDER THE EARTH, WAS ABLE TO OPEN THE BOOK, NEITHER TO LOOK THEREON. Without arrogance and without headymindedness, I humbly ask you to realize that this includes JESUS CHRIST. No man, living or dead, in heaven or hell, or anywhere in existence, is able, was able, will ever be able to open the book, or to look thereon. So therefore, where are all the doctrines coming from in this world and in this ending age, that are expounding such great and grand interpretations of Revelation? Revelation itself declares that even JESUS CHRIST who sits at the Father’s right hand is not the one that the FATHER had chosen to open up the book or to look thereon. So therefore, who is this one chosen from the foundations of the world to open up the book and to look upon its pages?
To open up means to fulfill. To open up means to become manifested. To open up means to become formed. To open up means to be created into or born from. He was first spoken of in Gen. 3:15 And 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. JESUS CHRIST was Himself already born of the WORD, and was the WORD and entered into flesh into this world. So then and therefore, who is this one also who is of the WORD, who shall be born of the WORD and enter into this world? He is the Offspring, and the bright and morning star, He whom CHRIST JESUS said He would send, would prevail to send, to do judgment. And He shall do judgment through and by the words of JESUS CHRIST Himself.
Jn. 8:50 And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth. So therefore, JESUS said, there is one to come that shall exalt my glory, and seek to exalt my glory, and He shall do judgment. Jn. 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. Jn. 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. Reader, we are yet to see this One, and this judgment take place in the earth.
All things are of GOD, are of the Father, even the Spirit and all of His and Her many dominions and powers. For in the very beginning of time, GOD said, let us make man in our image. And GOD created Adam and Eve, and called them one Adam. GOD drew Eve from Adam’s side. Adam in the beginning was created into a male-female creation, and GOD looked at Adam, and said concerning Adam as he was first created, This is not good. So GOD caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam and removed from Adam, Eve, and Eve became a separated, living soul, none-the-less, being called by GOD, this male-female creation, ONE Adam. Therefore, by GOD’s own creation in the beginning, there being a male and female and they being called ONE Adam, likewise, in the ending of time, there is a second male-female creation, called ONE Adam, He being called the LORD our righteousness, and she being called the Lord our righteousness, He being a male fig, and she being a female fig, there being in the ending, an Offspring of this creation, the Heir, of whom GOD speaks of, One born after the eternal priesthood.
For we know that GOD has seated CHRIST JESUS at His own right hand, and calls Him his Son, yet there is another that GOD speaks of as calling Him also, His Son. Rev. 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his GOD, and He shall be my Son. This coming One, formed by the WORD, coming from the WORD, shall inherit also, all things. For JESUS said in Lk. 22:29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me. For JESUS CHRIST is both KING of Kings, and LORD of Lords, and if there be no Kings and no Lords, He is LORD and KING of nothing. Therefore, why should it marvel us that He should so bestow such honours on flesh and blood, on living men, and grant them Kingdoms, and cause them to be KINGS and PRIESTS in the earth, and to cause them to triumph and overthrow satan and his kingdom in this earth, and to cast down all the works of evil, sin and corruption? Why should it marvel us that He also bestows these honours on women, seeing as women are co-heirs in the Kingdom of GOD, equal heirs in the Kingdom of GOD, and of CHRIST?

Book Two of Two
DEDICATION To the blood bought saints of GOD, both living and dead, who have suffered for decades with me, through persecutions, abasement’s, rejections, hatreds, evil speakings, jealousies, poverty’s, sorrows, losses, following in lack, believing without evidence, and abiding without substance. The faith hoped for, is still hoped for. And the evidence believed for, is still believed for. And the love sown in our hearts for the LORD JESUS CHRIST and each other, is our refuge and strength and eternal hope, joy and glory! To the Sons of GOD, to the Daughters of GOD, the New City, the Heavenly City of Jerusalem, and to JESUS CHRIST be the glory, honour, praise, now and forever more. LORD, let there be a special crown just for Mama. Let those that sit at your feet bearing the scars of their watches, be crowned with everlasting glory, these that have borne your truths in this evil and unbelieving world, and died, not having seen the fruits of their sufferings, though not understanding, yet believed unto death. Let the name of JESUS CHRIST, LORD of Lords and KING of Kings, ring down through the halls of eternity, and let our names be inscribed on His cross of death as a tribute to His sacrifice for our sins. Glory, praise and honour, to the FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, and to all the living and dead saints who bear His shame, His name, and His sufferings in this world. Amen.
