Chapter 10 The BRIDE Must Make Herself Ready!
Usually, mysteries roll around and around in us and when they do, the Holy Spirit can sort them out. And as our hearts seek the answers to these things, the Holy Ghost is ever bit by bit and precept by precept building the understanding in us concerning these secrets of the Kingdom of God. It is more apparent every day that because men have tampered with Revelation before the time, the church is in a great darkness and even in many darknesses, they not even agreeing on their darknesses. And it is more apparent with every passing day that more and more people are tampering with the interpretation of Revelation, blanketing the entire body of Christ with doctrines that have no strength, no power, no truth, no deliverance or healing, and certainly no salvation from death. I am looking for a saving power from death, not dying and then getting resurrected, but a literal saving power to die not, and that is in the coming of the Kingdom of God, and in the Manchild. For we say as the Apostle Paul, we who are alive at His appearing, at the appearing of the Manchild and the Kingdom of God, and remain alive through the judgment of the living, remaining alive through the fulfilling of Revelation, remaining alive to the coming of the LORD Jesus Christ, shall die not, but we shall be changed. The dead in Christ shall rise first in the resurrection, and we, the living, shall then be changed into our new bodies, all being cloaked with the white raiment of immortality, and all together shall rise up with and in the City of God to meet Christ in the air, to forever be with Him.
The Apostles had to go on without Christ. How could they? Where could they go? When the Apostles realized Jesus was really going to die, they could not bear it, could not understand it. Jesus is immortality in the flesh, and He must die? Jesus is eternal life in the flesh, and He must die? Jesus is the resurrection power in the flesh, and He must die? How can Jesus die and yet give us life if He has to die? Will we not die also if He dies? The agony and pain that the Apostles must have endured when learning of that truth that Jesus would die, can no tongue tell. Their hearts broke. Their very flesh melted. Their strength was poured out like water. They had nowhere to go and no one to turn to, not being able to go on without Jesus and not being able to return to the temple because of Him. Sometimes we are as water poured out into the sand that cannot be gathered back together again. We mourn and we grieve and we hope and we pray and we fast and we sorrow and we cry and we simply are poured out as water sometimes that cannot be found. We long for the Bridegroom!
I would not know what to minister if I were not ministering the coming Kingdom of GOD, for it is not yet present or we would not have been taught by our LORD to pray, Thy Kingdom come. So the church teaches exactly what? For, yes, when I first came to Christ, I was concerned with escaping damnation and hell. But afterward, I was concerned only with entering into the Kingdom of GOD. And we are speaking about entering into, not simply an escaping from. For I realize that when Christ takes our lives, He literally takes them. When we gave our lives to Christ, they were taken away from us. We no longer have a life in this world, but our lives have been taken away, and every day we realize more and more and more yet, that they have been literally taken away, and the urgency and the flurry of activity in the Kingdom of GOD and heaven alike is moving at a rapid pace, the flesh being unable, not even barely able, but unable to be sustained with enough strength to get through each and every day. We would joy in having but fatigue. For in being tired one also is refreshed, but we seem to stay in a state of exhaustion without refreshing. Our refreshing lies in hope and in engaging in a supernatural faith that sustains us when breaking, holds us up when falling, and girds us up when unable to stand in our own strength.
Yesterday is gone and today is the day, and the moment. Today is the day to joy in, for it may be the day that eternal life is born into the world. For now, death reigns on all flesh. But that day in which the Manchild is come, and eternal life comes again into the flesh, and is born again, it is that day we hope in and live in, that hope alone. That is the day we rise every day to hope in and to greet. Where the church lives to rise up from the earth, we live to deliver the earth. Where the church lives to escape the earth, we live to heal the earth. Where the church lives to flee all things and has its strength in the hope of seeing the world and all men destroyed, we live and have our hope in seeing the world cleansed, healed, delivered, and saved. So we have a hope unlike the living. We have the hope of the dead. The hope of the dead is the resurrection, and the hope of the living is immortality, for they are One.
So we hope in the little things, for the big things come seldom but the little things come day by day by day and like the rain, falls upon those deserving of her refreshing. Learn to breathe hope, be sustained by hope, refreshed by hope, strengthened by hope, for those that serve the living GOD shall live and those that serve gods that are perishing shall perish with their own gods. Rise up every day with the hope of immortality in you, and not the agony of death, the fear of death, nor the thoughts of it. For it is written . . . . .concerning the Lamb . . . . Rev. 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. 17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
And later on, it is written. . . later on, after all that is said is done . . . . .Rev. 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 6 And he said unto me, It is done, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
As the river runs to the sea, float with it and go with the tide and get not out upon the shore to wait for others that are upstream somewhere, you hope. Hope not in flesh nor in the desires of it nor in the dreams of the foolish. Hope only in the truth that bears in its own self, the powers of deliverance. For the same Word that spoke and all things became formed, speaks and again, they shall become unformed. That is the God men shall bow to, the living Word that has the power behind its sound to create or destroy, save or damn. Look up, for redemption draws nigh.
We often forget that the church is appointed to give her power, her voice unto the beast, until the words of GOD are fulfilled or completed in the earth. We know not all those things that were not written that must be completed that John did not write. Therefore, Revelation said, Thou shalt prophesy again before many nations, and tongues, and people. When John prophesied, he was not prophesying at that time to many nations, and tongues, and people. He was prophesying to the church, to the believers. John was prophesying to the then age of believers, attempting to set straight all the myths, and undo the false doctrines, and to settle once and for all, the truth in the earth that men might not be ensnared in tares sown in the Kingdom.
Every servant of Christ is called according to ability, talent, and anointing, and each one called is anointed according to those self-same birthright abilities. No anointing is the same as was from the beginning of time, each anointing and calling being according to grace, and that grace is by ability and talent, not setting aside generation. For a man would not hire someone to plant his field if he owns no field, nor would he hire harvesters for crops he has not planted. Neither would a man set up a business in a hot country to make snow suits, nor would he travel to the north pole to sell men ice. If ignorant men would not behave foolishly in the affairs of this world, God would be foolish in the affairs of His Kingdom? According to the need and necessity, do anointings come upon men to do the will of God, God not being a slothful or a foolish business man.
Yet those with little ability and talent, give not what little they have because of envy and jealousy upward in the body of Christ toward the heavily anointed ones, and they by their own neglect and wickednesses and jealousies and envies fulfill not even so much as their little, and they would walk the pathways of the greatest? They would hoe a hundred lines in the field and harvest a hundred fields where they would not tend to but one bush?
We find it easy to cast aside the cares of this world, and the cares of others. We find it difficult to cast aside the cares of this life. And we find it more difficult to cast aside the cares of the flesh, the flesh being ever present with us, demanding our attention, hating being denied, even being denied rest or eating or simply a moment to do something different than being on the grinding wheel night and day like Sampson, night and day and day and night, crawling out of bed to be chained to the grinding wheel. And if we stop, the whip across our backs of poverty, or debts, or business, or food, or shelter, or cares of this life, quickly draw our attention back to the wheel and we are the ones that must grind it or it stops.
We do not find that the world attracts us, or its baubles and trinkets and pleasures and all that it contains. For we have long ago passed that testing long, long ago. But the testings of life, and the testings of the flesh, these things walk with us every day, we being of this world, and of this flesh, and caught in the cares of its own survival.
We want someone to care. We want someone to take the wheel just for a moment or an hour. We want attention, and caring if we hurt or are sick or are bound up in self-pity with the labours being so heavy, and here the load is so heavy on each one, that we find that we are filled with condemnation toward our own selves in having a need to have someone care if we vomit or hurt or cannot get up or have a headache or bellyache so badly we cannot go on. We fall alone and we rise up alone. That is the state we are in. It is not that we do not care about one another. We grind the wheel. That is caring. We cease not to grind the wheel. That is love.
We feel condemned if we complain and condemned if we work only ten hours today and not our usual fourteen or fifteen. If we are only able to work a few hours, or even work less than yesterday, or work sixteen hours and the work is still growing and not decreasing, we feel condemned. If we gauge ourselves by a carnal gauge, we would be amazing bionic women. But we gauge ourselves by the workload and that brings condemnations so great that we utter a complaint and then bite our tongues. We utter a criticism and then give mercy. We judge and then judge more harshly our own selves. We are disquieted continually concerning our own righteousnesses because we fail to have the time to do all that must be done. So we do what we can do, and fail not to do what we can do, and must simply rest our own souls in that, every day.
The scriptures say when a woman grows wanton against Christ, she shall forsake Him. How is it that we grow wanton against Christ? Christ is a Spirit and we worship and love a Spirit, not flesh and blood, not flesh but Spirit. Where therefore, does wantonness originate? in the flesh? in the soul? the mind? the heart? the spirit? where? Where is wantonness anchored?
I have thought long, hard, and many, many years as to why I love God, and I can think of a hundred or thousands of reasons, yet there is but one reason. I am commanded to love Him. The scriptures command me to love Him. That’s the way it is. It is a commandment. The scriptures command me to love the brethren. That’s the way it is. It is a commandment. A commandment is without choice or reason. It just is. A man is commanded to love his wife. It is a commandment, not a choice. A man is commanded to lay down his life to his wife. It is a commandment, not a choice. That’s the way it is. A woman is commanded to submit to her husband. It is not a choice she has. It is a commandment. That’s the way it is. If we seek to reasons, when those reasons disappear, so does the love. If we seek to reasons, and to the whys, we are simply preparing our own escapes from the responsibilities of love, for then we justify our not loving, and we blame the failing reasons for our not loving.
Love hangs in there when everyone else is running, because love stands on the commandment and not on reasons. Love will not quit, because love does not love on reasons, but on commandment. Love is not a choice. It is a commandment. Since it is a commandment, it cannot be set aside, or overthrown, or cast away, or excused away. It just is. That’s the way it is. There is no choice. It just is. Love God because He commands it. That’s it.
Our hang-up comes when we fail to realize that we are completed works. It is finished. There comes a time when Christ is finished in us. In Hebrews it says that God works in us that which is well pleasing to Him, to make us perfect and formed perfectly in Christ. Now if the heat cracks the pot when baked that it leaks, or must be broken or must be cast away, unable to take the furnace fires, that is sad for the pot.
We keep thinking we can change and will change and perhaps we can change. But we must change and be changed while the clay is soft. For once the forming comes by the potter’s hands upon the wheel, and the pot is formed, it is then cast into the oven to be baked and then finished. The same Word comes upon and in us all and forms in us that which we allow it to form and that which we will form with it, casting ourselves upon it with all of our strength to be formed into it and it in us. But those that take the Word into the mind and not the flesh and the heart, deceive their own selves unto damnation, having cracks in their pots that will not hold the waters of life. Salvation is not from the neck up. Salvation is from the crown of the head all the way down to the tips of the toes.
The Word comes to us, and says certain things, and at that time, we obey, and we soften ourselves that other words will be easier and easier to obey, and as we obey we become stronger and stronger in righteousness, but if we obey not, we become hardened in rebellion and unbelief and disobediences. If we reject the Word, the Holy Spirit will convict us that we have sinned, and if we reject then that conviction, we harden ourselves and we damn our own selves by hardening ourselves against, not repentance, but righteousness. For those that disobey are always sorry, always crying boo hoo tears, always reasoning away their own disobediences. They are always crying because they have to do what they do not want to do, and they cry and cry and cry, being continually angered by having no choice but to obey. There is no choice. Thou shalt and thou shalt not are not multiple choice questions. Thou shalt. That is the way it is. Thou shalt not. That is the way it is. These are commandments. And commandments are without choice. That’s the way it is.
The good we know to do, we do it not. The Word that we already know, we obey it not. If we disobey the Word and have no conviction, we are already in a working damnation and are already in a life of a hardened conscience where no light of repentance works. And without repentance, there is no salvation at work. It is astounding to me that those who believe in Christ are more disobedient to the scriptures than those who believe not.
I know you are weary of being told what to do, and what not to do, and what you should have done, and what you should not have done. Words of chastisement and instruction that come from the Holy Spirit, are not intended as a personal attack upon any living soul, nor are they a personal disapproval of rebuke or discipline. The Word is a sword of offense, and is not a sword of defense. We need to learn that. The Word cuts us going in and coming out. It offends the flesh. It smarts the pride. It wounds the heart. Truth is spoken because all flesh is the same. It is ignorant. It is dark. It is rebellious. It is unrighteous. It hates teaching, instruction, obedience, being lorded over, being told what to do, being told what not to do, and unless we come to a full and complete realization that nothing good dwells in us, in the flesh, God will continually scourge us until we understand our iniquity and behold His righteousness. The pure in heart do not revile the truth. The pure in heart do not justify the flesh.
When we get filled with knowledge, it puffs us up till we think the flesh is something when it is nothing. And our heads are puffed with self, and with knowledge, and with prides, and with air, and right in the middle of our heads sits this cesspool, the mouth. Rejoice in being beaten by the Lord. He has a great work to be done in the earth and He needs great ones to do it. It shall not be given to the likes of children or babies of the faith, but to those who have been exercised on the wheel in Sampson’s dungeon. We must be able to be nailed to the cross and not cry out in the pain of the nails. Sampson simply had a mouth that spoke what it should not have spoken. Satan first got ahold of Sampson’s loins and then his mouth uttered perverse and disobedient things. I cannot imagine the horror of losing the Holy Spirit and then having my eyes gouged out, like Sampson. Sampson turned his own self over to his enemies. That is the power of the mouth. It brings hellfire upon us with a rage.
For look at the church! Look at the body of Christ! Look at its softness and at its tears and at its ease and comfort and at its inability to suffer! to have pain! to take loss! to take rebuke! to take sorrow! They cry at every graveside, despising God. They weep at every splinter. They eat and drink and dance and sing, and fill their bellies, and put upon themselves all manners of trinkets and baubles and grand clothing and expensive attires of this world. They are not strong. They are weak. They have not learned to suffer, but to find ease and safety in the things of this world. They have sought out the flesh and have made the flesh strong. Whereas God has taken our flesh and made it weak that we might know His strength and His power that cannot be broken or held back when unleashed.
We shall come to hate the flesh and love the Spirit, or come to hate the Spirit and love the flesh, or we shall come to a lukewarm state, loving neither, and hating neither. We will be filled with angers, bitternesses of the soul and total depletion of joy in the carnal and the spiritual as well. The scriptures command us to awake to righteousness and live. We do not want to wake up to righteousness. We want to slumber and have our ease, and without effort slip into the Kingdom of God. The scriptures say, awake to righteousness, and Christ Himself shall give us light. We must first awake to righteousness, and then will Christ take us unto His bosom. Light is righteousness. Truth is righteousness. Light is no lie. Light is being able to see the truth, hear the truth, and obey the truth. That is being awakened to righteousness. Those that never awake to righteousness are given by God the grand delusion that they should believe a lie, those that love unrighteousness. God Himself will harden one who hardens himself to the quickenings of the Spirit of righteousness.
Loving the loins is being in love with unrighteousness. For loving the loins will castrate one from the Holy Spirit. Jesus did not give the week-ends off to the Apostles to go and satisfy their earthly urgings. The love of the loins is like a continual dripping of water upon a great ice cap, but in time, the ice cap will give way to the dripping of the water and become melted and be washed away by its own self. It can melt the strongest of faith and cause them to be carried away by their own melting.
Christ is the door to salvation. We must walk through that door. He is a door. We must ourselves change and are changed from image to image by the Word. But the Word of God sowed into those who love this world and this flesh, becomes unfruitful in righteousness, producing thistles and briers and thorns and hatreds and bitternesses, the main root being envy and jealousy. These believe if the unsaved can have everything, they can more so have the everything, the all things of this flesh and this world, and even at that, in abundance.
All we have to do is to endure, and to wait, and to occupy, and to abide, occupying our places in the Kingdom of God till He appears. If He does not appear during our occupying, then we shall none-the-less have fulfilled our prophetical destinies and be ushered into His everlasting Kingdom with great glory and reward. For all we have to do is be faithful to obedience and to our places in His works in this earth. The fruits of the works are in His hands to deploy, employ or destroy. There is no greater power at the throne of God than a broken will to do His will.
It is amazing that as long as those that are around us do good unto us, we feel we are loved and if they do evil, we feel we are hated, and what matter either place or either thing? To be loved or hated, what matter it? What profit to us in this life to be loved or hated? Can we put it in the bank or write a check upon it to gain entrance into the heavenly Kingdom of God? What profit to have the whole world bow down and kiss our feet, and we perish in the ending having had the whole world bow down?
Who has rights? Those that take and declare they have rights, are the very same ones who are taking the rights away from others. To have the love and adoration of men is something to demand? to seek after? to lust for? to acquire? to sacrifice for? Then what? Can man give us healing or salvation or forgiveness for our sins? or give us immortality? or give us everlasting life? or breathe one breath into our bodies after we die, and they even then having the power to grant us life again? Men may open many doors in this life to us, and close many doors upon us, but when the angel of death knocks on our door, who is to then open the door to life for us in that hour of uncertainty? When we knock upon the door of death, who is going to be there opening up the door, and who is going to receive us at that moment?
Who shall resurrect us? It is to that one, Christ, that we bow down to and forfeit all things and suffer all things because of Him and by Him and through and for Him, that He might have mercy upon us and save us and grant us life and not condemn us. For what profit Christ in this life? Being His child brings tribulation, and persecution, and sufferings, and untold agonies of the soul and spirit, and what profit, therefore, in this life? What lover of God in the scriptures dwelled in a mansion on the hill?
We have a spiritual fault in that we believe that love saves. We believe that by loving others we can save them and cause them to turn to righteousness. Our love of them will cause them to despise us. Now no one would be damned or lost if love saved. Love cannot nor does save. Those that are saved love and those that are saved forgive others through that love, for love is a fruit of salvation, not the highway of deliverance. Love is the fruit of salvation, not the root. Those born of God are born of love. Love is the fruit.
We need the Spirit of life. For without the Spirit, there is no life, only the pre-determined fruit of death that shall surely claim the flesh of all men. The Spirit of life is the Spirit of righteousness. That is the Spirit that saves from both damnation and death.
Understand the parable of the sheep and the goats. When the Son of man shall sit in all of His glory upon the earth, He will gather all nations before Him and the goats shall go to the left and the sheep to the right, the goats to those things prepared for the devil and his angels, and the wraths and tribulations appointed to the children of wrath, and the sheep will go to the right, those appointed unto the Kingdom of God and all the inheritances of the City of God. For if you consider the judgment throne of God, you have the Father, and on His right hand is Jesus, and on His left hand is satan. There was a time written down in eternity past, when Christ was at the left hand of God, He being the younger brother, and satan was at the right hand, he being the elder brother. It is satan who is the goat. It is satan who is the rebellious one. It is satan who first led heaven to rebel against God, and then the earth likewise to rebel against God, being a son of God also yet rebellious to obedience to his Father.
When Christ was crucified, and satan molested Christ, and God raised Him from the dead, at that time satan was judged and was taken from the right hand of God and Jesus then was seated at the Father’s right hand, and took the scepter of the Father’s right hand of power, being greater than the left hand of power, all power in Christ now being greater than the power of the left hand, satan.
There are powers, the left hand and the right hand. The goat that sits at the left hand of the Father, satan, has power above men and angels alike, yet is lesser than the power on the right hand. We are not speaking of the trinity but of the parable of the sheep and the goats. For the sheep are divided into sheep and goats, as the wheat field is divided into tares and wheat. The unbeliever and the wicked all go the way of damnation. The judgment of the earth is not for the damned. It is for the believer. The damned are the damned are the damned. But the believers, those who have heard the words of salvation, are they who shall enter into judgment. The damned have no judgment seat. They are simply damned and lost. They are judged for wickednesses and evils and sins done, whereas the believers or those who have heard the words of the Lord, are judged as having obeyed or not obeyed. These are they for whom the judgment seat therefore has been prepared. The judgment seat is not prepared for the damned but for those who shall receive either salvation or damnation by those things that are written of them in the books of God. The damned are not written in the Lamb’s book of life and have no hope of judgment and no hope of appearing before the throne for petition of salvation. For only those who come through Christ Jesus, and through the Word even have a hope of appearing before the throne of God for judgment, one way or the other. All shall come up from the graves, some to damnation and some to life. But all those that come up to the throne for judgment have first been believers in Christ in this life. The scriptures say that those that have not the law, perish without the law.
The throne of God is there for the believers to be judged whether they obeyed the Word or not, whether they did their works or not, whether they forgave or not, whether they forfeited the life to gain it, or not. The thrones of God are set for those who have the laws of God, who have the law, who have heard repent or perish, who have heard the words of love the brethren, forgive all men, and repent for all wrong doing. That is the left and right judgment, and it is a judgment of works, of faith, of obedience, and by loving not the life unto the death. When Jesus tapped each one of us on the shoulder and called us to follow Him, He said, Forfeit the life. Deny the self. Give up all things to enter into life. Once one enters into righteousness, or into life, then is the spirit and mind in that soul able to discern between evil and good and choose salvation and righteousness with every single thought.
Ever since the Kingdom of God was lost in the garden of Eden, men have looked for it, longed for it, sought for it, lived for it, died for it, yet has it come and gone again, the whole earth now travailing and crying out for the appearing of the Kingdom of God, for the Kingdom to return again to the earth and make itself known. We are commanded to seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness. To seek the Kingdom of God, we have to seek where it was, where it went, and how are we to find it again? In the beginning, in the Alpha, it was in the garden of Eden, and was lost through sin, and then found in Christ Jesus, it having returned in Christ, and then when Christ was crucified, it was taken away a second time. That is where we are now. We are looking for that Kingdom, waiting for that Kingdom, and travailing as a woman in birth for that Kingdom to again come into the world. We are praying for the Omega to come, the ending to be as the beginning. Jesus said . . . . .Matt. 6:9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
We are praying for the salvation of the world, not for its destruction. You have those who are believing they are going up and out, and you have those that tell you, you have no responsibility to defeat satan and to cast him from the earth, and you have those that try to scare the crumbs out of you that you believe the grand delusion and the lie sent from God Himself to deceive those who love the flesh and the world and the prosperities of it. And you have a great image that speaks all manners of blasphemies against the blood of Christ, enticing you to buy of her wares. The commandment is, Fear not men. That is not a choice. That is a commandment. The commandment is, No man shall be given the interpretation of Revelation, no man living or dead. That is not a choice. That is a commandment.
Rev. 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. There is a generation, a living generation that shall fulfill every single word of Revelation, from the least to the greatest, and from the most glorious to the most horrible. There shall be those who inherit the City, the living City, new Jerusalem, it involving a marriage, and a supper, and an offspring, and a glorious Kingdom come. And there shall be those who see not, nor hear, nor believe, nor care to believe, and these shall suffer great tribulation and judgments and wraths. And there shall be those who literally have their names blotted out of the book of life, having their portions of the City taken from them, and all the glorious gifts that come with the City. They were once in, and then were cast out, having not on the wedding garment. Those that tell you to fear the beast, and the mark of the beast, and to fear men, are deluded. For it is written . . . . .Rev. 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. And it said before this . . . Rev. 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. There is no greater a sorcerer than one who adds unto and takes away from Revelation. There is no greater of a liar than one who conjures from his own imaginations and from lying angels, the interpretation of Revelation, calling themselves prophets. There is no greater a murderer of souls than one who calls you to fear men. There is no greater an unbeliever than one who calls the Woman a liar and the Manchild a myth.
And again is it written . . . . .Rev. 21:10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God. And concerning this great City . . . .24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Jesus said . . .Matt. 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcass is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
The coming of the Manchild . . . . . . Matt. 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. The coming of Christ . . . .30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And when shall these things occur? . . . .when the all things are seen!
There is no secret taking out. Heed the warning from the mouth of Christ concerning the rapture, a secret taking out. Follow them not! For He comes in a new name, first, the Kingdom descending down into the world in the Manchild. The City of GOD shall first come into the world, and cast open its gates, that all who will, may enter in and drink of her crystal, running waters, freely! no tithes! no offerings! freely drink of immortality and eternal life! There is a wedding, an offspring, and . . . . Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. Blessed is that generation!
