There are two things that natural Israel obtained by way of concession. These were never in the Lord’s mind because both things supplanted the Lord’s purpose. One was to have a king like the rest of the nations. The other to build a “house” for the Lord.

In the person of Samuel, the Lord responded to the nagging and pestering for a “king”, and told Samuel to give them a king. But the Lord clarified to Samuel that the people were not rejecting Samuel, but the Lord Himself, who was their King. But in giving them their desire, the Lord told Samuel to make them understand the oppressive, liberty destroying thing that they were asking. It was explained and they said “give us our king anyway”. You may directly compare this episode to Abram and Sarah, who failed in faith and patience concerning an heir to be born to them. They conspired and produced Ishmael, via Hagar, which was none of the Lord’s doing. When Isaac was born, they now had a problem. It was a problem the Lord solved with as much equity as possible, but the problem was a lasting trouble that survives to this day. Israel, in getting their “king”, created lasting trouble that persisted and drove them to the final declaration. When confronted with their true King in the flesh, they utterly rejected Him, declaring, “we have no king but Caesar”. Whenever you read of the kings of Israel and Judah, whether “good or bad”, you do well to keep in mind, that this was never the Lord’s intention. “Christianity” today mirrors nearly exactly, all that was shown before in these shadows.

When David was king, he hatched up in his mind, the idea to build a house for the Lord. The Lord had amply declared that He dwells in the heavens. The Lord went so far as to say, “the heaven, and the heaven OF heavens are not sufficient to contain Me. Where is this house you propose to build me?”. Then the Lord told David, “I will build you a house”. The Lord declared that this would be accomplished in one who would be born in David’s house, and that this one would assume the everlasting throne. This was not a throne yet to come. It is the throne referenced in the declaration, “Thy throne , O God, is from everlasting”. Later Christ would point out that David saw this in the Spirit. David saw and recorded, that “The Lord said to my Lord, sit at my right hand until I make your enemies to be your footstool”. And so the perplexing and abandoned question, “If David calls him Lord, how is he David’s son?”.

When Solomon assumed the throne of David, another mistake was made. They blew the trumpet and declared that God had, in Solomon, fulfilled all His promise to David. And so, another mistake was made, and a temple was built in concession. But when this pile of sticks and stones was completed, the ark of the covenant was brought into it with pomp and ceremony. Notably, the only thing in the ark was the tables of the law. Conspicuous by absence; Life (manna) and resurrection (Aaron’s rod). So many generations later, when the heir of all the promises made to David (and to all flesh for that matter), was made flesh and tabernacled among them, they had another problem. This Christ, in whom all of the fullness of God dwelt, who had declared “the Father dwells in Me”, and who declared, “I am the life (bread) and the resurrection (Aaron’s rod), stood in front of the pile of stick and stone that housed nothing but the handwritten ordinances, declared, “Destroy this temple and I will build it again in three days”. Jesus completely and 100% was identifying Himself as the heir of the everlasting throne, and the house the Lord promised David. The accusation that He had blasphemed the temple was 100% a lie because Jesus was not in the remotest sense referring to the pile of sticks and stones. he was speaking of Himself. And so, when He declared that “in my Father’s house are many houses, and I go to prepare a place for you, and going, I will come again and receive you to myself”, in so declaring, Jesus was telling us that we would be added to Him, the Father’s house. A house not built with hands. Sadly, many have not this knowledge. Paul had to write to believers, “Do you not know that you are the temple? and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? (which is the irreducible minimum definition of the temple). Today many erroneously call the modern day high places and groves, “the Lord’s house”, and they foolishly look for “the temple” to be built again, meaning another pile of sticks and stones.

All of the promises of God are “yes and amen” in Christ. All. There remains nothing more to be fulfilled outside of Him, or in Him. It is finished. You are complete in Him. Either you see it or you don’t. Those that don’t or won’t, are in the precarious state that John the Baptist was in for a short time, “Are you He? or do we look for another?”. The flesh is weak indeed, but we do not any longer halt between opinions. The day is fully come. True worshipers worship God in the Spirit. Not hailing Him from afar, but from His very bosom.

[Jer 31:31-33 KJV] 31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Another critical point of correct language in scripture, of correct application of names and identities, is the name “Israel”. The name was given to Jacob when he wrestled with God and prevailed. Because Jacob prevailed, he was called “Israel”, which means “to prevail as a prince with God”. A prince is an heir. He is in line to the throne. It is of note, that having said in Jacob, “Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed“, having said this, it is important to observe that the man Jacob was called Jacob many, many times in scripture. So, to whom did the Lord speak, in saying, “Israel shall be thy name”? Was it Jacob himself? or someone who was yet in his loins? Allow me to make an example. Abraham was blessed by Melchizedek before Isaac was born…Isaac in whom the Lord would say, “thy seed shall be called”. And Abraham gave to Melchizedek tithes. The apostle Paul would later write, that Levi, yet in the loins of Abraham, paid tithes to Melchizedek, testifying that Melchizedek was a priest of a higher and eternal order. Even so, this “Israel” to whom the Lord spoke, was yet in the loins of Jacob. Again, the Lord had said to Abraham: “He that shall come forth out of thine own bowels shall be thine heir“. And again: “And the angel of the LORD called unto Abraham out of heaven the second time,And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the LORD, for because thou hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only [son]: That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which [is] upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice”. But again, what does the apostle Paul show us? “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ“. Therefore this blessing available to all the nations is in one who came out of Abraham, and not all.

Let us examine the Gospels, the good tidings, the word of God which can not be broken, the gospel which records Jesus speaking to the subjects of the old covenant, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me”. Matthew 2 says this of the young child Jesus: “And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.
” Let’s find the prophet and his words, of whom Matthew quotes. His name is Hosea, and in chapter 11, here is his prophetic word:

“When Israel [was] a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt”.

The unbroken word of God, in Matthew 2, tells you that these words of Hosea were fulfilled in Christ. If they were fulfilled in Christ, then they went unfulfilled UNTIL Christ, and Jesus Christ is declared and revealed to be the Israel of God, the prince with God, and the heir of all things. Therefore, Jesus Christ, yet in the loins of Jacob, is the one who was named Israel. Let there be no confusion about this.

So, when the Lord spoke by Jeremiah, of a new covenant with the house of Israel, let there be no confusion about the Israel to whom the Lord referred. Again, in the unbreakable word of God, we can search and read every place in scripture that the words “new covenant” appear:

[Jer 31:31 KJV] Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

[Heb 8:8 KJV] For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:

[Heb 8:13 KJV] In that he saith, A new [covenant], he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old [is] ready to vanish away.

[Heb 12:24 KJV] And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel.

The days were fulfilled when Jesus rose from the dead and became the mediator of the new covenant. And the new covenant is in Him and all His house, whose house we are, as said said Paul:

[Heb 3:6 KJV] But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

So, what again are the terms of this new covenant with Christ? But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

And so, the new covenant is effectual in them in whom the Lord Jesus dwells by the Spirit of God. For the scriptures declare that He, the Spirit of God, The Teacher, is spread abroad in our hearts. And the new covenant goes on to say, “They shall no more teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying “know the Lord”, for they shall all know me, from the least of them, unto the greatest of them: for I will forgive there iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more”.

And so, the Lord’s House are not “many teachers” , but we have, all of us, The One Teacher. The Spirit of Truth. And from this understanding of who the Israel of God is, and how we are made heirs with Him, by the indwelling Spirit that raised Him from the dead, and who now dwells in us by faith, from this knowledge can every one of us be brought to the fulfillment and highest place of the covenant, “they shall all know me”.

I strongly encourage everyone to read again, the things Jesus said in John’s gospel concerning the ratification of this new covenant in you, by the Holy Spirit. Also in John’s epistles, where he said that if the Spirit dwells in us, the knowledge of all things dwells in us.

[1Jo 2:20 KJV] But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

This is true, if so be the Spirit of God dwells in us, because in Him, is the knowledge of all things. The knowledge is ours for the asking.

God bless you, and blessings upon The Israel of God.

The Measuring Stick

“A reed like unto a rod”

Often men have the power to change the proper name of something, and so, change and bend it’s meaning, or rather, not it’s meaning, but what many will think it means. The Sea of Galilee became the Sea of Tiberius. Jesus was presumed to be the son of Joseph, Jerusalem was called the City of David for so long, that even today it is called the City of David. But in the true and pure language of heaven, when Christ was born, the angel proclaimed, “Unto you is born, this day, in the city of David, a savior, which is Christ, the Lord”. Bethlehem Ephratah is the city of David, where Rachel was buried, and where the House of Israel was revealed in Ruth 4, to be built in Rachel and Leah (Not in Bilhah and Zilpah, the slaves who built the house of Jacob, as per Genesis 37).

So, what is the true name of Jerusalem beneath? In the pure language of heaven, the city is named, “Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified”. (Rev 11) The two faces of religion: willing participation and forced participation. Both abominations.

The scriptures declare that Jesus did not rise alone. In the prophets it was declared, “Together with my dead body shall they rise”. (Isaiah 26) And, “we are lead as sheep to the slaughter; we are killed all the day long”. (Psalm 44). Also, “I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live”. (Gal 2).

Rev. 11 reveals the adversarial relationship between them born of Jerusalem beneath, spiritual Sodom and Egypt, and Jerusalem above, the mother of us all…them born of the Spirit.

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty [and] two months.

And I will give [power] unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

And their dead bodies [shall lie] in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

The application of the reed, the measuring and comparing Jerusalem beneath to the Resurrected, glorified Christ, is a torment to it, and to them who dwell in it. To be beheaded for one’s testimony is not necessarily corporeal. But it is ALWAYS to be silenced. The extinguishing of any contrary voice is not a new phenomenon. It has been going on since the fall. But in this present age, there is one TRUTH. And there is but one authorized to declare it. If the same Spirit which raised Christ from the dead dwell in you, you are authorized.

From the time Solomon built the Temple at Jerusalem, it was called just that, “The Temple”. Jesus, who had said “The Father dwells in Me”, said this because it was the truth. He was The Temple, because all of the fullness and Spirit of the Father dwelt in Him. And when Jesus said the words, “destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days”, there was an assumption made by them that heard Him, that He was speaking of Solomon’s temple. It was a false assumption. He was speaking of His crucifixion and resurrection. And according to all of the law and the prophets, Christ was not raised alone. Paul had to write to a group of believers who were apparently in ignorance or confusion about the matter. He wrote and asked them, “know ye not that ye are The Temple, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”. This true definition of The Temple, as the dwelling of God by the Spirit, is the ONLY true definition. If one desired to search and find The Temple using the process of elimination, one would begin by eliminating anything or place where the Lord has said He DOES NOT dwell. He does not dwell in a house built with hands. To this very day, the religious houses and systems that are built by man remain at complete odds with the true house that the Lord built in resurrection, and not man:

For we know that if our earthly house of [this] tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

” Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Thus saith the LORD, The heaven [is] my throne, and the earth [is] my footstool: where [is] the house that ye build unto me? and where [is] the place of my rest? For all those [things] hath mine hand made, and all those [things] have been, saith the LORD: but to this [man] will I look, [even] to [him that is] poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.

“I Can’t Believe My Eyes”

[2Co 5:7 KJV] 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Daniel was an interpreter of dreams, a dissolver of doubts. One dream he interpreted was of the great wondrous image that Nebuchadnezzar saw. It was revealed that the dream had to do with the dissolving of kingdoms and the setting up of the everlasting kingdom, a kingdom that would never be removed or dissolved. The image was struck in the feet and reduced to dust; blown away by the wind like chaff on the threshing floor. All of it’s components were disassociated, de-constructed and most notably, not reconstructed or rearranged into the everlasting kingdom, but completely scattered. The everlasting kingdom came in the form of a stone, the same stone that the builders reject. That stone grew into a great mountain and filled the earth.

It is also most notable that Daniel was shown that the everlasting kingdom had a peculiar trait about it…it would “not be left to others”. There is no line of succession, not generations coming and going, in fact it is no work of flesh at all. Every building material from gold to clay were never again enjoined under the guise of a kingdom. Jesus said “flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God”. When would this everlasting kingdom “come”? I suppose conventional wisdom teaches that for one kingdom to “come” and be established. the previous kingdom must first be eradicated and replaced with the everlasting kingdom. And so humanity moves from kingdom to kingdom, empire to empire, one form of “understanding” to another, always looking over the horizon for something to “come”. But what does Daniel say?

This [is] the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
Thou, O king, [art] a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou [art] this head of gold.
And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all [things]: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And [as] the toes of the feet [were] part of iron, and part of clay, [so] the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

The everlasting kingdom, which has no line of succession, is set up in the very days of the kingdoms it destroys. It is not just another image cobbled together, rearranging the same old constituents into some new experiment. The eternal kingdom is Christ, and is entered into in faith. What did Daniel try to convey to Nebuchadnezzar about the purpose of the dreams Nebuchadnezzar saw? Daniel told him that the intent was that Nebuchadnezzar understand the Lord rules NOW among the kingdoms of men and flesh. The Lord sets up kingdoms and throws kingdoms down. And in the midst of all this chronology and change, the Lord is operating and establishing the everlasting kingdom. Not after the former are destroyed, but while and as they are destroyed. If one sees this, and recognizes that he/she has received an everlasting kingdom which will never be destroyed, he/she has experienced the truth and certainty of what the apostle wrote, saying:

“That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated [us] into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, [even] the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.”

Notice that the apostle did not say “will deliver”, but “hath delivered”, which is a very notable difference. So, where is the destruction of the former kingdoms in this? for now, it is in the one delivered. The one who walks in this in faith is not looking for another kingdom. Jesus Himself sits in power and absolute authority while His enemies are made His footstool.

Daniel offers a unique perspective. You can walk in faith while many things come and go in your time of sojourn. Daniel lived through many regimes. The Kingdom of Judah, the Kingdom of Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar, The Kingdom of Babylon under Belshazzar, the Kingdom of Media under Darius, and into the Kingdom of Persia under Cyrus. Daniel lived through these things, but only truly lived in one Kingdom. I promise you that Daniel never confused any of these houses of flesh with the Kingdom of God. The book of Daniel begins with the carrying away captive, the vessels of the Lord’s House. The vessels were carried away and place in the treasure house of the “god” of Babylon. Is the Lord concerned with pots and cups? Daniel, Hananiah, Azariah and Mishael were the vessels. And regardless of surroundings, they never permitted themselves to lose that identity. This is a great lesson to us. If we have received a kingdom in faith, then let us walk in faith, the times, seasons, kingdoms, religions, social thinking dujour notwithstanding. If you have received the Lord in faith, and nothing in the world looks any different, don’t believe your eyes. If you know that we, in Christ, are the Temple of God, then don’t look for another. Have faith in the operation of God, who knows how to preserve the faithful while simultaneously reserving the faithless for judgment.

Daniel lived through much of what was represented by the image he interpreted. Another individual lived through the Iron Kingdom, long after Daniel. And if you are reading this, you too live in the Iron Kingdom. Nathaniel was everything Daniel, Hananiah, Azariah, and Mishael were. True Jews. That is, inwardly. Nathaniel lived in a time of Roman occupation. The Romans kept Judah and Israel divided and conquered, as they do to this day. Nathaniel understood that it was the time Messiah was expected. In fact, many false messiahs had already come and gone. It is worth noting the scriptural definition of Messiah. It does not mean savior, or political hero. It means The Anointed. As Nathaniel sat under a fig tree, he wondered how he would know Messiah if Messiah were to appear. Nathaniel was considering in his mind, how that Jacob had seen the Lord at the top of a ladder in a dream. It occurred to Nathaniel that as Jacob was seeing the Lord, the Lord was certainly seeing Jacob. This thought entered Nathaniel’s heart by Jesus putting it there, Jesus who was “seeing” him at that moment under the fig tree. Nathaniel knew this experience was from God. Nathaniel had his answer. Messiah would find him. No sooner had Nathaniel had this experience of revelation, than did Jesus appear and hailed him as an Israelite in deed…someone whose heart had no guile…no hidden motives. Nathaniel asked Jesus, “where do you know me from?”. Jesus said, “before Philip called you, I am the one who was watching you under the fig tree”. Nathaniel did not say anything about Rome. He did not say anything about the temple, the priests or Herod. He did not ask when everything would be straightened out in the nation. He said “You are the King of Israel, you are the Son of God”. Jesus said, “because I reveal that it was I you experienced under the fig tree, you believe? I tell you the truth, hereafter you (like Jacob) will see the angels of God ascending and descending upon the son of man.”

We should be seeing this too.

If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

“Hid” is the word “krypto” …encrypted, concealed. And so will we be in this world…as He is in this world. When He is revealed in glory…we will appear with Him.

Don’t be deceived by the natural appearance of things. All will be revealed together. We have received a kingdom that can not be moved. Beware of the folly of looking for another in this world. The rock has smitten the image. All the king’s horses and all the kings men, will never put Humpty together again. The kingdom which did this is within you. You are a vessel of the Lord’s house, no matter where you find yourself now. Faith and patience.

Aluminum And Silicon

The two most common elements in the earth’s crust, are Aluminum and Silicon.This has become a thing of study for me in the scripture in recent days, as the constituent components of clay are aluminum and silicon. Clay is not dirt. It is a mineral.

The thing of interest to me, is the great image that Nebuchadnezzar saw, and which was explained to Daniel by God. It consisted of what I previously only saw as four elemental metals perched upon clay, with increasing specific gravity as you went up the image. Copper (brass) weighs more than iron, silver more than copper, gold more than silver. I had never seen, nor considered the presence of aluminum in the image. But clay contains aluminum. In fact the most common, and most commonly used form is a chemical layering of silicon and aluminum compounds. Clay contains aluminum and silicon, and is not clay if you separate the two from the clay.

What strikes me is that the image contains the elemental metals that are craved by humanity, highly sought after for sheer wealth by reason of their scarceness. The Gold, silver, copper and iron, represent certain things in the image, things pertaining to kings and kingdoms, commerce and power, and ruling over the human race. The clay is the the least valuable, least esteemed, and most fragile component of the image. And it’s use as a foundation in a system as represented by Neb’s image is insanity. It is structurally predestined by the laws of natural physics, to come down. Gravity, and elemental exposure will destroy the foundation as designed.

Until science revealed to us, the constitution of clay, we, as students of scripture, were not even aware of a fifth metal in the image, in the form of aluminum. But it is there. Because without it, there is no clay. And a particular principle of truth of the scripture, is revealed in the statement, “I am the potter, ye are the clay”. In Ephesians, there is a beautiful expounding of another truth in the clay/potter relationship. Namely, that if a work of clay in process, becomes marred or deformed upon the potter’s wheel, the potter has the ability and the right, to squeeze it down to a basic lump again, and form it again, as He sees fit.

[Isa 64:8 KJV] 8 But now, O LORD, thou [art] our father; we [are] the clay, and thou our potter; and we all [are] the work of thy hand.

[Jer 18:4 KJV] 4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make [it].

In Ephesians, the Lord defines the “New Man” as being reduced down to the basic commonality of humanity, devoid of religious institution, and the application/ imposition of powers, principalities, systems of social, political and religious application, basically a lump of unformed clay again, with a new constituent introduced. You and I , a human being with Christ dwelling in us by faith. The new man. (This being neither male nor female, but a new “race”, a peculiar people, not contaminated with anything that was in the former and marred lump).

Jesus Christ, by the great work of redemption, has struck the feet of the image. There is only one power, and one throne. Only one seat of authority that exists, and will exist, both until this is understood, and long after. Because every eye will see, every knee bow, and every tongue will wag in confession to this. For all the hubbub in the earth about legitimate or illegitimate government, all the fighting, murdering intrigue surrounding it, there is only one situation that exists now, and will survive when all other contenders have been exposed and eliminated. Christ in you, the hope of glory, and the shared throne. Christ in you, the Teacher, who is not preoccupied with that which passes away, but with that which is established and eternal in the heavens. Christ the Teacher who takes the things of God, which are His and ours by faith, and shows them to us. This Teacher teaches me to sit with Him in faith, expecting until His enemies be reduced to this understanding. And they will. Psalm 2 offers us three places of belonging. You must find yourself either among the raging nations, the vain imagining people, or seated in heavenly places in Christ. If you are in the latter, you are not a participant in either of the former.

Silicon and Aluminum, the two most abundant, light weight, and economically diminutive of the constituents of the image that is defeated and coming down.

[1Co 1:26-31 KJV] 26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, [are called]: 27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; 28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, [yea], and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: 29 That no flesh should glory in his presence. 30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: 31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

[2Co 5:17-19 KJV] 17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.In Christ and in us, the Lord does a new thing. He does not do it with the former, forgotten things.Seen by 5

Jesus, the perfect work of the potter, destroyed the image. He grew into the great mountain that filled the earth. This work is in us. The mountain of the house of the Lord. It says of what Daniel saw, that the iron and clay cannot be mixed. They will attempt to mingle themselves with the seed of man, but will not be able. Iron is the imposition and application of the will of the image, to the clay. There is an attempt to replace the aluminum with iron. To make the will of human and devilish authority, an accepted and constituent part of the human psyche, replacing the rightful seat of Christ, but it will fail. Sadly, many will fail with it. The new man will never accept the mark in his/her mind, or in his/her deeds…the forehead and hand. If once a mind accepts and involves itself in the demonic image forming itself in this world, that mind ceases to be a new man.

Beauty For Ashes

[Jhn 19:1-3 KJV] 1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged [him]. 2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put [it] on his head, and they put on him a purple robe, 3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

Considering this morning, the crucible of flesh, the clay pot that we live in, and wherein all that we know is under constant and severe test, ground and broken down into it’s basic and irreducible constituent, which is Christ in us, our hope of glory. Jesus arrived at the absolute knowledge of who He was, is and was to come:

[Jhn 13:3 KJV] 3 Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God;

[Jhn 18:4 KJV] 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?

[Jhn 19:28 KJV] 28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

The image that Daniel interpreted for Nebuchadnezzar bore down with all of it’s weight, power, authority and sheer gravity bound downward force. The book of Revelation refines and clarifies the nature of the image, listing in greater detail, all of the things that the world system values and predicates itself upon, expounding in the matter of the point on which all are perched, the thing of least value to the system, the very souls of human beings. In completely contrary fashion to the world and it’s system of ‘values’, Jesus was/ is completely concerned with the salvation of said souls, to the disregarding of every other thing represented in the image. The point of contact, the field of conflict, the mind of every man and woman, where the knowledge of the truth must be presented. The truth is, that Jesus is King of kings, the only Potentate, the only wise God, the Heir of all things. This truth must be arrived at in every singular mind to which it comes. And with the knowledge, immediately comes the crucible, the crown of thorns.

Once asked by the disciples, “what must we do to work the works of God?”, Jesus said, “This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent”. The question was in the plural. The answer in the singular. All that one might do going forward must spring from the work of God.

Jesus was filled with absolute knowledge, and in the process of his mockery and murder, crowned with a crown of thorns. Thorns represent many things in scripture. The reluctance of the world to simply yield pleasant fruit of one’s labour. The flesh rending authoritarian systems of man’s systems of government. The temptations of flesh. The constant effort to keep one’s treasure in heaven, so that the heart may reside there too. As Jesus faced the un-faceable, everything He knew He was, and was to be, was challenged in His mind by the fact that all of the thorns now gouged and rent at His mind, in an attempt to dislodge Him, if possible, from His task. Knowing that there was no possibility of ‘this cup’ being taken from Him, it was inescapable that He must drink it. And through it all, He had to retain His knowledge, that He came from God, He went to God, and that God had given all things into His hands.

In Him, the first crack appeared in the bound-but not mixed, iron-clay interface. In in Him was set into being and motion, via the coming of the Holy Spirit of Promise, the repeated process of separation by knowledge, of a multitude of individuals, a generation in whom He would fulfill all things, a new people, newly created, gathered out of every national, religious or genetic distinction of humanity; gathered out of all, and belonging no more to any.

This knowledge of who and what you are, sealed to you by the Great Seal of the Holy Spirit of Promise, in the day that you believed, will be tested as it was in Him. It is inescapable, but not unbearable. And with it comes the promise of great reward. Let no man take your crown, the seat of knowledge and understanding. Though all of the fallen Adamic race would wind it’s crown of thorns about your head, to make it a painful mental conflict at times, rest in the knowledge of who you are in Him, and He in you. The crown of life will devour the crown of thorns.

[Isa 61:1-3 KJV] 1 The Spirit of the Lord GOD [is] upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to [them that are] bound; 2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3 To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

This fantastic truth is set forth from the very beginning. When God created the heavens and the earth, He created them of unseen things. The unseen things are known to exist by how they interact and are manifested on a scale we can see, both with the natural eyes and the spiritual eye and mind. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and, it says, the earth “was” without form and void”. Careful consideration and searching of definitions leads to the understanding that the earth “became” without form and void, rather than having been created that way. The earth was created with form and content, and something happened, such that form and content were lost. And immediately the Spirit of the Lord set about to restore form and content. I am persuaded that when we read how that Man walked in a place provided, a place of illumination, man had form and content tangible to God. Something happened, such that as the Voice of the Lord walked in the garden, the tangibility was gone, and the Lord asked, “where are you?”. Man was not created without form and devoid of content, he became that way. And immediately the Lord, though He was not responsible for this tragedy, the Lord set about the work of redemption and restitution. And that work would be perfected and completed in one who would be born of a woman. In the interim, the Lord clothed man with skins…with what you are holding when you pinch a bit of your skin between thumb and forefinger. It is a tent. It can never inherit the kingdom of God.

It is completely in order to read genesis, the opening chapters, and view the distinction between the “heavens and the earth” as the same distinction set forth in Einstein’s famous equation: E = mc2. It is an account of creation, and all of creation is taken into account. In the equation, E is energy, or “light”. Natural light is of vast energy levels, frequencies, spectrum, etc. It is far more than what little bit the human eye can perceive. “mc2” is the speed of light squared. The mathematical truth of the equation simply states that energy and matter are in essence, the same thing. E=m. The constant, the speed of light squared, gives quantity to the truth. It tells you how much matter equates to how much energy. A very crude and inaccurate analogy would be to say that ice and water vapour are the same thing. A little math would be needed to say how much energy is required to cause a quantity of ice to become water vapour. The example is crude, but I think helpful.

Notice in the account in Genesis 1, that the stars, the sun, the moon, etc., were created some time after light. Think about that. Light existed in abundance in the creation, all the light that was created, before the wonderful engines called stars, which we attribute with making light. What they do, is convert some matter back into light, along with producing heavier elements from lighter, via fusion, and in their death, via fission. When a star begins to produce iron, it dies. It dies swiftly, and violently. Iron is a worthy study in scripture, and when Jesus saw a star fall, He could not at that time have conveyed to humanity, the natural occurrences, as humanity did not possess the knowledge at that time, to comprehend it. But once a star enters into iron production, it falls and produces all of the natural heavy elements craved by fallen man…gold, silver, etc., the materials of Nebuchadnezzar’s vision, but that is another study. Another place to think/meditate on this general truth, is in the book of Jude. Wandering stars are not stars. They are “planetos”…planets, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness. They produce no light at all, they only reflect it. Planetos means “wanderers”, a name derived from them being seen to move about in the night sky seasonally, which a true star will not do. Thus they are falsely given esteem and are included in the heavenly message recorded in the stars, but do not belong in it. To rightly read the heavenly gospel, one must learn to discount these usurpers. Daniel saw that those who lead many to righteousness, will shine as the stars of heaven. Not as the planets, which have no place in the message.

Fusion in Stars

Swirls of hydrogen and helium gas condensed into huge clouds. The gravitational force at the core brought the matter closer and closer together until some of the nuclei coalesced. This produced energy, the heat and light of the stars.

What is Fusion? Fusion a type of nuclear reaction where two nuclei come together to form the nucleus of a different element. Each element has a particular number of protons in the nucleus. Isotopes of an element all have the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons.

In the core of a star, gravity produces high density and high temperature. The density of gas in the core of our sun is 160 g/cm3, much higher than the densest metal, and the temperature is 15,000,000 K (27 million degrees Fahrenheit). At this temperature, the hydrogen and helium gases become a plasma. That is, the electrons separate from the nuclei to give a mix of positively charged ions and electrons.

Under these conditions protons (H-1) react with other protons to make deuterium nuclei (H-2) and positrons. The deuterium nuclei can merge to form a helium nuclei (He-4), or they can interact with other protons to make another isotope of helium (He-3). Two He-3 nuclei can fuse to make a nucleus of an unstable beryllium nucleus (Be-6) that breaks apart to give He-4 and two protons. Energy is released at each step.

The fusion of hydrogen nuclei uses up hydrogen to produce helium and energy. Hydrogen is the fuel for the process. As the hydrogen is used up, the core of the star condenses and heats up even more. This promotes the fusion of heavier and heavier elements, ultimately forming all the elements up to iron.

Energy from Hydrogen Fusion In going from hydrogen to iron, energy is released as nuclei fuse to make bigger ones. Why?

The protons and neutrons are held together through a type of energy called nuclear binding energy. The nuclear binding energy for H-1, a proton, is zero because there is only one particle in the nucleus.

As the number of particles in the nucleus increases, energy is released. This is the same amount of energy that is required to break them apart.

Energy in this table is reported in units of MeV or mega-electron volts. A MeV is equal to 1.602 x 10-13 joules.

From Hyperphysics:

Another way to think of the energy released by fusion is to look at the change in mass. The total mass of the helium nucleus is less than the sum of the mass of the 4 particles that make it up.

Why stop at Iron? Adding additional protons and neutrons to iron doesn’t release energy because the binding energy peaks at this element. For element heavier than iron, fusion requires energy.

How did the heavier elements form?

It was from the energy of other explosions. A large, exploding star or supernova releases the energy needed to fuse all of the heavier elements.

The Earth and all of the material on it were formed from stardust!

When we look at the night sky and say it is dark, we are not seeing the truth. Space is full of light. It is bathed in it. When the moon is in the night sky, we speak of “moonlight”. But what is moonlight? it is reflected sunlight. The moon can not produce light. It is the lesser light of the sky to reflect the light of the sun in time of darkness. But when it does this, it does so because the matter of the moon and natural light are of the same thing. Because of the unique relationship between matter and light, matter is able to declare the presence of light, and to reveal much of light’s properties.

E = mc2

“I and My Father are one”

John 7:28-29 ” Then cried Jesus in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye know not. But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me”.

2Co 5:17-19 “Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation”.

The equation Einstein gave us tells us how much energy is bound up in a quantity of matter. But in the case of Jesus Christ, the question is, “how much of God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself”? The answer is ALL. In Him dwelt ALL the fullness of the Godhead bodily. And now in resurrection, it is written of Him, that in Him dwells all the fullness of the godhead bodily AND ye are complete in Him”…we are added to Him in resurrection.

In the old times, a covenant was often accompanied by a meal shared between the parties to the covenant. The appearance of covenants take two initial forms in the old testament. The covenant with Noah, and the covenant with Abraham. In Moses, the particulars of the covenant were spelled out. But they were not kept or fulfilled. In Jeremiah, the Lord said this, reiterated by Paul:

[Jer 31:31-34 KJV] 31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day [that] I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this [shall be] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

[Heb 8:10 KJV] 10 For this [is] the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

[Heb 10:16 KJV] 16 This [is] the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

Christ in you is the new covenant. He is the Israel of God. He and them begotten to God in Him. He was the WORD made flesh. He was also THE LIGHT made flesh. The nature of the covenant includes the never ending breaking of bread we participate with in Him. The true bread of heaven that is in you, the Hidden Manna that can not be found or duplicated in the world. Not the reflected light of religion and religious authoritarian mediators, scholars and interpreters, all of which Christ has taken out of the equation. Christ Himself in you, the new covenant and the new and living way. He Himself, your teacher and your inheritance. He spoke in some places of the undesirable condition of being found naked. If and when the tabernacle of your flesh is dissolved, you will not be found naked if Christ is in you. You have the house eternal in the heavens, the Father’s house of many houses, which He has come again and received you to. And though this tent be dissolved:

[2Co 5:1 KJV] 1 For we know that if our earthly house of [this] tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Jesus Christ came from the Father and so, as declared in the gospel of creation, is able to declare to us the Father, precisely because He is of the Father…as matter revealing light teaches us.

[Jhn 14:21-26 KJV] 21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world? 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me. 25 These things have I spoken unto you, being [yet] present with you. 26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Standing Fast In An Occupation

Since it was spoken in my heart, before the onset of the recent man made microscopic scourge, to “Be mentally prepared to live in an occupation”, that has been my mindset. It continues to be my mindset.

The book of Daniel has risen to the top in the place I read and meditate on living in an occupation. This is not to imply it is the preferred place in scripture to read about the subject, as there are many places. But it has emerged repeatedly to me in considering the matter.

Daniel lived in Jerusalem and was among the princes of Judah when the nation fell to Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon. Daniel was carried away to Babylon along with many of the royal seed, as well as many of the treasured vessels of the temple. The two things, individuals of royal seed, and precious vessels. are synonymous. They are a picture of the form that the Temple of the Lord takes in this age and world. Namely, individuals in whom the Spirit of God dwells. But suffice it to say that if one is born of the Spirit…begotten to God in Christ Jesus, and sealed with that Holy Spirit of Promise, then his/her citizenship is in heaven. His/her origins are in heaven, he/she is dead to one age, and his/her life is hid with Christ in God. Paul had to write to a group who had accepted the gospel, and ask them: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”

Many may need to be told to “remember from where you are fallen”, as is shown in the book of Revelation, but what we are by spiritual birth is not what we were before. It is much more. And with it comes among many things, power to become sons of God. Jesus spoke in a place to all who were wearied in laborious seeking and observing after a religious sort, yet were unfulfilled, “Take my yoke upon you and learn of me”. The word “yoke” is “zygose” or “joined”. A yoke of oxen is a good picture to reveal two joined together in the same work and endeavour. A zygote is a better picture to shed light on the saying “of both twain, one new man”. A sperm is a single celled organism. An egg is a single celled organism. A fertilized egg is a zygote. It is a single celled organism now empowered to become everything it has been made to become. It does not begin as two cells. It is created and made in the moment of conception, the new and unique single cell containing all of the genetic information it was uniquely created with. What is the easier path? to be born and grow into what you can be? or to try to imitate something you read about in a medium that can not produce it alone? His Yoke is truly easy and His burden light.

Daniel was of the royal seed. This seal is upon him for life. He stands as a tremendous example of one who did not forget this. His true heritage was sealed in him no matter that he passed through four kingdoms. His earliest test was Nebuchadnezzar’s seminary, a three year program to convert Daniel and his three fellows into useful implements in the court and kingdom of Babylon. It is worth doing a little research into the word “seminary”. It has it’s root in the word “semen”. Daniel and his fellows were compelled to go through this, but they flatly refused the daily ration of the “king’s” meat and drink. No matter what these four men endured in the occupations they lived through, they remained true to what they were born. None of them ever waived any of that in order to fit in to the occupations they found themselves in. Though pressed into service through no design of their own, they never relinquished who and what they truly were, even under threat of death. Another test of Daniel came in the first year of Darius the Median. To be cast into a den of lions, and be taken up with no form of injury the next morning because he “believed his God”, is a figure of resurrection. These men endured much in their lives, that was brought to bear via political and religious intrigues. Thankfully none of them ever abandoned who and what they were. A way was always made for them. Joseph being cast into a pit and lifted out of it, and David emerging with a company from the cave Adullam, are also figures of resurrection.

Daniel’s experience transcended several regime changes, a whirlwind of political, religious and military maelstrom. But Daniel had experiences that were chronicled as apart from and above these earthly experiences. His spiritual walk and scope of revelation spanned four earthly realms. And so does ours. In the end of the Book of Daniel, things seem, at least to me, amazingly parallel to our times. The scriptures of truth are little understood. Few stand with Christ in who, what and where He is now.

"But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and [there is] none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince."
— Daniel 10:21 (KJV)

Curiously, for all that Paul would later speak and do in Asia, Paul eventually would tell Timothy that “all they in Asia have forsaken me”.

One thing Daniel saw was the Western Church given as a bride to another kingdom. It may interest some to read and think about. This takes place in an age where the art of lying is elevated to the norm.

In the final analysis, we like Daniel, do not belong to any of the things unfolding in the consummation of the age, but to the kingdom and age to come.

Daniel 12:13 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days. (Dan 12)

Another thing of interest Daniel saw concerning the world system and image doomed to failure, the attempt to manipulate human genetics.

40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. 41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

In any event, hold fast what you have (and are) and let no man take your Corona.

Finally, wherever you are in the world reading this, understand that what is taking place is not specific to your country. It is global. The final vision that Nebuchadnezzar had taught him that the Lord sets the basest of men as rulers. The vision was global. Nebuchadnezzar’s mind was depicted as a great tree reaching up toward heaven (filling all religious structure in the earth) and was seen everywhere on earth (filling all political structure). It was when Nebuchadnezzar professed how wise and glorious he was, and that all this power was because of that, that his mind was taken from him. We, all of us on the planet, are made of one blood, and have one creator. We are living through the revealed madness of self absorbed, self worshipping political and religious elitists. It is absolute insanity, but it will end. It will come down. They will be taught that it is God in heaven and His Christ who reign in the heavens and in the earth. The knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters do the sea. This will be brought to pass. The seat of authority within everyone of us belongs to Christ. Not to any other. Hold fast what you have.

The Treasures Of The Snow

[Rev 1:7 KJV] 7 Behold, he comes with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they [also] which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.

[Job 38:22 KJV] 22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,

[Psa 148:8 KJV] 8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

[Deu 32:2 KJV] 2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distill as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:

[Job 36:28 KJV] 28 Which the clouds do drop [and] distill upon man abundantly.


Job was asked a question; “Have you entered into the treasures of the snow”?

As improbable as it may seem, the common saying that no two snowflakes are exactly alike is true. Over the millennium, countless trillions upon trillions of snowflakes have been formed in the clouds, and made their way to the earth. In one snowfall alone in your back yard, you would be astonished at the number. There is in these facts, a tremendous witness and statement about the Lord. That He is not a proselytizer…He does not crank out clones or duplicates, or adherents to doctrine. In a place, He said that the Son of man was not made for the Sabbath, but the Sabbath for the Son of man. Therefore nothing formed, or proclaimed to bear witness to Him, can supersede Him.

The creation of a snowflake is a marvellous study. There is one common denominator in all the process. One constituent in every snowflake. Simply put, it is water. In it’s basic constitution, every snowflake consists of water molecules arranged and assembled into the final product. And while every snowflake shares in this identical constituent, no two snowflakes are ever identical in their final expression. They differ because the trillions of molecules in each snowflake are never arranged and assembled in the exact same configuration.

The Lord has said that His word and teaching distill as the clouds, the dew and the rain. Clouds which float so lightly in the sky are composed of water droplets. The droplets are so small that they are held aloft by the motion of the air. The droplets are typically about a million times lighter than a raindrop, and a very small fraction of the diameter of the typical human hair. Clouds, like snow, appear white because they do not absorb light. They are transparent, as is a snowflake. The sun provides the energy to cause water vapour to rise from the land and the seas. It’s like vapour rising above a boiling pot of water, only on a far grander, and perpetual scale. The process of distillation separates water from land and sea, into it’s true essence, that of water molecules. This process is described in a way by Peter, who said to desire the sincere, or unadulterated milk of the Word, that you may grow thereby. This is the Word unfolded to you by the Author, the Spirit of Truth and of God. It is not fact checked by religion, by politics, by society, nor any other facet of human existence. It is exactly what Jesus said, that He would come to you and lead you unto all truth. John also said that the anointing that you have received of Him abides in you (not comes and goes, but abides), and you need not that any man should teach you, for the anointing Himself shall teach you of all things.

When the conditions of temperature, humidity, etc. In a cloud are right, a water droplet freezes into a crystal. As the crystal gathers vapour from around itself, this too freezes and is added to the crystal. The process in each snowflake take it’s own unique path through variations of temperature, humidity, etc., resulting in a unique and one of a kind flake that drifts to the earth. This, in my mind, is absolutely astounding…how every flake is made of water, but none are made exactly alike.

There is a phrase often used in the scriptures to describe this in a person. It is written in several places that in Him, every one of us sits “Under his own fig and his own vine”. In scripture, the Fig, the Vine (Grape) and the Olive are often used to depict the fullness of God, the Father, the Son and the Spirit , who are all one. Jesus said that if any love Him, he will keep His words, and He and His Father will make their abode with him. It is also written that our fellowship is truly with the Father and with the Son. But in the saying of sitting under the Fig and the Vine, it does not in any place say anyone sits under his own Olive. This puzzled me for years, until I understood that each of us has his/her unique, and absolutely unique relationship with the Father and with the Son, shared with none but the Father and the Son. But what we all have absolutely in common, is the Spirit. By one Spirit are we baptized into one body. We are not “many teachers’, because we all have the Teacher. The treasures of the snow are the perfect example. All are 100% water. No two were lead down the same path of creation, making each unique and gloriously different.

Jesus said that if you have seen Him, you have seen the Father (and so, how can you say, “show us the Father”?) Similarly he said to the seat of religion, “You will see my face no more until you say , blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord. I suppose it not robbery to say, IF any has seen someone in Christ, they have seen Christ. But if one confines the thinking to bodily form, one will likely not “see”.

There is a lot of speculation about the Lord’s coming. And among the speculators, one aspect of it has been totally overlooked, in that He said He would come to you in the Spirit. But the Lord has not given to us a spirit of speculation, but of knowledge in the revelation of Him. It does not say the Spirit will lead you into speculation, but into knowledge.

So when we read that “He cometh with clouds”, we may KNOW he is not talking about water vapour, but them who are begotten to God by the Spirit. The clouds of heaven are not water vapour, they are a people. So inseparably one are we with Him, that it says when He shall appear, we shall also appear with Him in glory. The temple is in the earth now.

Jesus warned of the mechanics of religion, that it compasses sea and land to make one proselyte, and when that conversion in complete, it is two-fold the child of hell that the converters are. Jesus hate both the deeds and doctrine of them. There is one instance in which snowflakes can look alike. It is in the simplistic snowflakes formed artificially in a laboratory.

Be encouraged and be yourself in Him. Have faith in the operation of God, who has no desire that you be made conformable to one another. Read and pray. The one thing that makes you all one, is the One Spirit who makes you all different and unique.

A Short Word

Some things Jesus says are easy to gloss over, but deserve careful consideration (as does, of course, everything He says). “If your eye is single, your whole body is full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body is full of darkness. If therefore, the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!”The scriptures, the entirety of them, conclude and culminate in a people restored to the very thing man kind began with and lost. Genesis refers to a tree of life, a bad choice, and the immediate setting about of the Spirit of God to effect redemption and restoration. This is further described as a river going out of the “garden” to water the earth. It is branched into four flows. Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and Euphrates. The names form a statement of the work of the river, the Spirit of God: “Increase Bursting Forth Rapid Fruitfulness”. It speaks of a people being filled with the Spirit of God. In the concluding book of the Bible, the Euphrates is dried up…indicating that them who shall be born of the Spirit is a finite work. It is not limited to a certain head count, but to a certain time. The possibility to be born of the Spirit is not an open ended thing, but will come to a close, as “drying the Euphrates” signifies.

The prophets referred to Christ and His people collectively as “I and the children my Father has given me”. Jesus spoke and said, “fear not little flock, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom of God”. Matthew’s gospel also perfectly details these things, calling it’s opening declaration, the “book of the generation of Jesus Christ”. The overshadowing word is “Christ”. Any time you see the title “Christ”, you may understand it is speaking of the dwelling of God by the Spirit. It is not speaking only of a man to whom the Father gave the Spirit without measure, but all who would be made participants in that. Matthew details in a count, that from Abraham to Christ are 42 generations. It begins not with Adam , but with what was in Abraham by faith. It lists names, father to son. When you get to the man Jesus, you are not on the 42nd and final generation. It is not possible to give that final name and number until Jesus would be raised from the dead. Here is the truth. From the time Jesus came out of the grave, until this very moment, and until the Father sums all things up at the time of His own choosing (no man knowing the time), everyone added to Christ and born of the Spirit in Him, is the 42nd and final generation. There will be none following this finished work. It is not a physical generation, but Spiritual, spanning the duration of the work of the resurrection.

Many presently seek and desire healing for the nations. This is commendable. But many do not pursue it according to knowledge. The conclusion of the Bible is a people firmly identified with the Tree of Life, whose leaves are for the healing of the nations. There is no healing for the nations outside of it. The river of life flows from it. Contemplate a tree, if you will, that has no roots because it does not drink water. It contains and disperses it abundantly and endlessly. It has no need of light of sun, moon, star or candle. It is filled with light. It’s leaves do not receive light from any external source and attempt to interpret it. It’s leaves convert endless, inextinguishable, inexhaustible inner light into healing for the nations. This describes the man Jesus, yes, but it does not stop there. It also describes a people that the scriptures say the very creation groans and murmurs in pain and travail, awaiting their manifestation. The scripture calls them the Sons of God. This is not gender specific. Whether male or female, this remains your possible inheritance in Christ. An apostle wrote to women, that they might be strengthened in their inner man. I do not venture into today’s gender debate, as I care nothing about it. I simply encourage and implore all to understand that the things Jesus admonished Nicodemus about, expounding these things, will not be available to humanity forever. When the Lord shuts a door, no man can open it. Esau recognized his folly too late and sought a place of repentance with hand wringing and tears. But once he lost birthright and blessing, he lost them. He lost them because he valued the immediate satiation of his belly with a bowl of bean soup, over inheritance and birthright.

If the light that is in you is intimate and perpetual knowledge of all the evil in the world, to the point that you are little more than a sounding board for it, well, how great is that darkness. No patient has ever been cured of a disease by shoving more of it down his throat. The healing of the nations, spoken of in the conclusion of the book, comes from a tree born in the one who declared, “the prince of this world is coming, and he has nothing in me”.
