The Secret Of The Stairs-Christ In You


THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS, GENETICS TRANSFERED.

JUDE: “Lord , How is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?”
JESUS: “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.”

Isa 26:20
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Sgs 2:14
O my dove,  in the clefts of the rock, in the secret of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

Gen 28:12
And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

Jhn 1:51
And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

This link contains a very good interactive graphic that takes you through the complete, codependent life cycle of the fig and wasp:

When it comes to accidental insect consumption, any 12-year-old boy can set you straight: the black dots in bananas are tarantula eggs, three centipedes crawl into your mouth every night while you sleep, and, of course, fig bars are full of baby wasps. A simple Internet search easily puts two of these grade-school urban legends to rest. However, an inquiry into the world of figs turns up images that many people might find more than a little troubling: figs plants teaming with insects; fruit split open revealing hoards of small wasps. While these images may not be all that appetizing, there’s no reason to swear off figs quite yet. Those little insects are fig wasps, and they play an essential role in the fig’s life cycle as the plant’s only pollinator. That means that for pollen from one fig plant to reach another plant, fig wasps must do all the leg work. In return, the plant provides fig wasps with their only sources of food and shelter. This arrangement is called mutualism. Both plant and wasp depend on the arrangement to survive, and without one, you wouldn’t have the other. But what happens when it’s time to harvest the figs? Are the wasps still inside? Do the food companies scrape them out before they turn figs into jam? Or were the 12-year-olds right all along — are we really eating a mouthful of sweet baby wasp paste?

To really understand the wasp-eating dilemma associated with figs, you have to first look at the closely connected life cycles of both the plant and the insect. The current mutual relationship between the two didn’t happen overnight. It’s the result of millions of years of evolution. The fig plant and the fig wasp both have the same goal: reproduction. For this to happen, a fig plant needs to share its genetic material (in the form of pollen) with another of its kind, and the fig wasp needs a place where its larva can grow and feed. Think of the fig wasp as a tenant, and the fig plant as a landlord who takes payment in the form of pollen. What we call a fig (a structure called the syconium) is more inverted flower than fruit, with all its reproductive parts located inside. After a female fig wasp flies over from the fig plant she emerged from, she must travel to the center of the syconium to lay her eggs. To get there, she climbs down through a narrow passage called the ostiole. The passage is so cramped that the tiny fig wasp loses her wings and antenna during her claustrophobic trek. Once inside, there’s no getting back out and flying to another plant — but is she in the right place?

Fig plants boast two kinds of figs: male caprifigs and female edible figs. If a female wasp enters a caprifig, she’ll find male flower parts that are perfectly shaped to hold the eggs she’ll eventually lay. The eggs will grow into larvae, which will develop into male and female wasps. After hatching, the blind, wingless male wasps will spend the remainder of their lives digging tunnels through the fig. The female wasps then emerge through these tunnels and fly off to find a new fig — carrying precious pollen with them. If a female fig wasp enters an edible fig, she eventually dies from exhaustion or starvation. The female flower parts include a long stylus that hinders her attempts to lay her eggs. She may die, but she succeeds in delivering the much-needed pollen first. So a fig farmer winds up with caprifigs full of wasp eggs and edible figs full of seeds. Though edible figs may not be filled with baby wasps, doesn’t this mean that these figs contain a lot of female wasps who died of loneliness? Read on to find out what (or whom) you’re munching on when you grab a fig treat.

Most commercially grown figs are pollinated by wasps. And yes, edible figs wind up with at least one dead female wasp inside. But it’s still not quite the childhood myth of fruits squirming with insect meat. It’s all part of the mutually beneficial relationship that exists between fig wasp and fig plant. A few points worth remembering about the wasp content:

1. When a female wasp dies inside an edible fig, an enzyme in the fig
called ficin breaks down her carcass into protein. The fig basically digests the dead insect, making it a part of the resulting ripened fruit. The crunchy bits in figs are seeds, not anatomical parts of a wasp.

2.  Fig farmers want to keep the number of wasps entering edible figs to an acceptable minimum. While the insect’s cooperation is mandatory for the fig to ripen, too many wasps entering will result in over-pollination. Then this fig might be filled with so many seeds that the fruit-like syconium bursts open. While this is good for the plant, it hurts the finished harvest for farmers. To prevent this, farmers separate male and female trees over great distances. Farmers also supply a controlled number of new wasps, often delivered in paper sacks, to dictate exactly how many females have access to a given plant. This means fewer wasps inside when the time comes to harvest.

In a day when there seems to be no secrecy, no sanctified place for the individual, where his or her thoughts are known to his or herself and God, all the more do the words of the proverb ring true, “Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life”.( Proverb 4). There is a secret place of the Most High, expounded perfectly in Psalm 91. The Secret Place is in the relationship between the Father and the Son. To this fact does the apostle John boldly state that, truly, our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:3)

The disciples were once asked a question by Jesus:

“Whom do men say that I the Son of man am ?”

They gave a mixed bag of answers, consisting not of what each man thought of his own, but of what others were reported to say:

“And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.”

Jesus replied:

“But whom say ye that I am?”

Peter gave an answer, an answer seized upon and perverted, becoming the great snare and stumbling block in the age we live in:

“Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus did not coerce this answer from Peter, He did not lead Peter into the answer, nor does He coerce or lead any of us into that answer, from that time until this. Jesus does, however, look for this answer. And finding the answer He looks for, Jesus said this:

“Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Barjona means “son of Jonah”. Jonah means “Dove”. Peter (Stone) received via the Holy Spirit (Dove), the revelation of the foundation (rock, here from the word for “boulder”), Peter within himself, received the revelation, from the Father, by the Holy Spirit, of who the Son, Jesus, is. This revelation can not flesh and blood reveal, but ONLY the True, and Heavenly Father. Peter was no more the rock and foundation of the Church of the Living God, than was Jacob, who received, in essence, the same revelation in Luz, when he fled from Esau. Jacob poured oil upon the stones and pronounced them the “House of God”, he did not pour oil on himself. To Jacob, as to Peter, were revealed the Rock, the foundation which alone is laid of the Father, and other foundation  can no man lay. The resurrected Son of Man, Jesus Christ, is the foundation. The keys of the kingdom, given to Peter, as pertaining to the binding or loosing of things in heaven,or in earth, for Peter, went no further than Peter. The same is true for us. God is no respecter of persons. We must also receive of Christ, the same keys, and we must exercise the use of them. We are entering into a kingdom. We are not building , altering or tampering with it. We are given no power to include or exclude any from God. It is important to understand these things, and to dispel from the mind, any notion that the Lord has  replaced His own person and Self in the heart of any individual, with any “vicar” , or representative in absentia. Before his passion, the Lord said He would not leave us orphaned, but that He would come again unto us. On the full day of Pentecost, the Lord, who is as good as His word (and the only worthy of that saying) CAME.

The Lord had warned that the adversary desired to have Peter, and to sift Him as wheat…to make bread; teaching; doctrine of Him. The adversary has accomplished this, though Peter himself has no part in it, his name and experienced being fallaciously set upon by the usurper. The Lord has appointed no man on earth to be in His stead, or to be the vessel and repository of the bread of heaven. Peter is no more the foundation of the Body of Christ, than Christ is David’s son, or Mary is the mother of God (who has no mother). The Church was taken out of His own RESURRECTED body, and is flesh of His flesh…bone of His bone. That bread of heaven is Christ in you, the hidden manna Jesus promises the over comer, and the responsibility of threshing, winnowing, and eating, falls upon every disciple, as prophetically depicted in Matthew 12. Beware of anything that sits on a chair and claims to be the infallible word of the Lord, except that person be the Lord, and that chair be in you. Rightly divide the scripture of truth. Pluck, thresh, winnow, eat. Christ in you by faith, is the superior sheaf of Joseph, to which all other ideas will bow the knee.

The Gospel of John begins with the answer to Jude’s question concerning how the Lord reveals himself to the individual, and to ANY individual, who asks (numbers are no obstacle with God), and yet this goes unseen in the world:

  “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

The revelation, in you, of who Christ is, is a conception. It is a conception of the very body of His resurrection. It is the power to become. It is the conception of a new man, and is the only man that will receive these things. Flesh and blood can not receive them. Not Abraham’s flesh, not Gentile flesh, not any flesh. This comes by the Father. It comes no other way. And lest any be deceived, Jesus emphasized to Peter , “My Father, which is in heaven” has revealed this to you. If simple common sense will not prevail, this saying alone, destroys any notion of a man sitting on a chair being anything akin the the Holy Father.

The question of the Revelation of Christ, and the Lord’s ways are beautifully set forth in the scriptures in places innumerable. But one of them may be searched out in an oft repeated saying, a saying that addresses both the revealings of God, and the manner in which He reveals:

“ In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbor under the vine and under the fig tree.” (Zec 3)

The Godhead is depicted in Judges 9. A son of a concubine of Gideon, Abimelech, using intrigue and lies, conspires and has all the sons of Gideon, his half brothers, all free born of wives, murdered, and himself instilled and set up as king over his people. A concubine is a bond woman. Remember…no son of a bond woman may be heir together of the Promise, with the son of a free woman. This is a spiritual truth, and an immutable one. We MUST be born again. We MUST be born free.

One free son of Gideon survived. His name was Jotham… “Jehovah is Perfect”. This surviving son of many brethren, all heirs of their Father’s body, rebukes the usurper:

“Jotham went and stood in the top of mount Gerizim, and lifted up his voice, and cried, and said unto them, Hearken unto me, ye men of Shechem, that God may hearken unto you. The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us. But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honor God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us. But the fig tree said unto them, Should I forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted over the trees? Then said the trees unto the vine, Come thou, and reign over us. And the vine said unto them, Should I leave my wine, which cheers God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees? Then said all the trees unto the bramble, Come thou, and reign over us.”

The bramble knows only one way to rule. Tear flesh. The Lord reigns differently, internally, and by revelation.

The Olive Tree gives the oil, Jesus said “I am the vine, (ye are the branches), which leaves the Fig. In Jesus dwells all the fullness of the godhead bodily AND ye are complete in Him. Keep your heart with all diligence.

The Olive, the Vine (and your branch), and the Fig…a complete depiction of the garden of God. A secret place, not known to the world. Not seen of the world. Certainly not known among the kingdom of the Bramble.

It was under the Fig tree that Nathanael received the revelation of who Jesus is. Jesus told Nathanael that after this (revelation) that he, Nathanael, would see greater things:

“And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

I strongly encourage all to make a study of the fig. You will see written in it’s marvelous way, the fig wasp, as the messengers, from fig to fig, conveying the eternal nature, in secret.

Be encouraged. Take heart. The Spirit takes the things of the Father and the Son, and shows them to us. This is in order that we may be like Him. Remember that Gideon, when called, was threshing secretly by the wine press, to hide his activities from the Midianites, who were sent to oppress Israel because of their rebellion and unbelief. Midian means “strife”. You have a secret place of the Father, a Garden of God in your heart. Keep it. Strife  is not your inheritance, nor flesh tearing usurping sons of bondage. We are joint heirs with Christ.
Within the book of Ecclesiastes are found descriptions of the fact that we are bound, as the fetus is bound by the umbilical, to the body of flesh, and to the body of resurrection. Paul wrote of the body of resurrection, that it is fashioned like the glorified body of Jesus. That it is sown in this vessel of humiliation, but that what is raised is not what is sown. He wrote that it is (by faith) not afar off, but in you now, saying that if at what moment this tent (of flesh) were dissolved, we have (present tense) a house (a body) eternal in the heavens.

Ecclesiastes 12 defines the loosing of the ties to the carnal house:

“…man goes to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets: the silver cord is loosed,  the golden bowl is broken, the pitcher is broken at the fountain, the wheel broken at the cistern. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”

By these is the spirit bound to the flesh, the silver cord, the golden bowl, the wheel.

Ecclesiastes 4 defines another sort of cord:

“…Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

Paul also expounds the threefold cord…that which binds us to the Lord within us, that which is not quickly broken, spilled out, or left at the well:

“…When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abide faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” (1 Corinthians 13)

The composition of this cord is unseen, but is more substantial than what is seen. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man sees, why doth he yet hope for? Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (Heb 11,Rom 8)

I am not a builder. I am a rester. I believe God. I believe Jesus.  I accept that it is the Father’s good pleasure to give to the little flock, the kingdom which is His own. I accept and believe that Jesus has accomplished all, and that I enter into HIS rest by faith.

I reject the council of the adversary, sent to try King Hezekiah, and the people, saying:

“Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me, and then eat ye every man of his own vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his cistern: Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die: and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuades you, saying, The LORD will deliver us.”

There is no land “like” the kingdom of God that interests me in the least. The world and everything in it, have no place in Christ, and I want no place in them. In this time of every thought, word and deed becoming part of the public domain, I will (by the grace of God) remain hid (encrypted) with Christ in God. The body of Christ is not a Borg-like collective…it is a company of individuals. I have no problem fellowshipping with my brethren, But the world has no right to any message from me, save the words, “Repent toward God”. “Believe Jesus and live”. In their last days, the Hebrews judged themselves unworthy of life. They rejected the Son.

The plagues and judgments of the Great Whore of Revelation, are being poured out and drunk deeply now. Organized “Christianity” is in the same state the Hebrews were in , in their last days, resisting the Holy Ghost, embracing a lie.

To stand, to over come, is accomplished as an individual.

The Lord bless and keep all who seek Him in Truth.
THE SECRET OF THE STAIRS, GENETICS TRANSFERED.

JUDE: “Lord , How is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?”
JESUS: “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.”

Isa 26:20

Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Sgs 2:14
O my dove,  in the clefts of the rock, in the secret of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely.

Gen 28:12
And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

Jhn 1:51
And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

In a day when there seems to be no secrecy, no sanctified place for the individual, where his or her thoughts are known to his or herself and God, all the more do the words of the proverb ring true, “Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life”.( Proverb 4). There is a secret place of the Most High, expounded perfectly in Psalm 91. The Secret Place is in the relationship between the Father and the Son. To this fact does the apostle John boldly state that, truly, our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:3)

The disciples were once asked a question by Jesus:

“Whom do men say that I the Son of man am ?”

They gave a mixed bag of answers, consisting not of what each man thought of his own, but of what others were reported to say:

“And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.”

Jesus replied:

“But whom say ye that I am?”

Peter gave an answer, an answer seized upon and perverted, becoming the great snare and stumbling block in the age we live in:

“Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus did not coerce this answer from Peter, He did not lead Peter into the answer, nor does He coerce or lead any of us into that answer, from that time until this. Jesus does, however, look for this answer. And finding the answer He looks for, Jesus said this:

“Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Barjona means “son of Jonah”. Jonah means “Dove”. Peter (Stone) received via the Holy Spirit (Dove), the revelation of the foundation (rock, here from the word for “boulder”), Peter within himself, received the revelation, from the Father, by the Holy Spirit, of who the Son, Jesus, is. This revelation can not flesh and blood reveal, but ONLY the True, and Heavenly Father. Peter was no more the rock and foundation of the Church of the Living God, than was Jacob, who received, in essence, the same revelation in Luz, when he fled from Esau. Jacob poured oil upon the stones and pronounced them the “House of God”, he did not pour oil on himself. To Jacob, as to Peter, were revealed the Rock, the foundation which alone is laid of the Father, and other foundation  can no man lay. The resurrected Son of Man, Jesus Christ, is the foundation. The keys of the kingdom, given to Peter, as pertaining to the binding or loosing of things in heaven,or in earth, for Peter, went no further than Peter. The same is true for us. God is no respecter of persons. We must also receive of Christ, the same keys, and we must exercise the use of them. We are entering into a kingdom. We are not building , altering or tampering with it. We are given no power to include or exclude any from God. It is important to understand these things, and to dispel from the mind, any notion that the Lord has  replaced His own person and Self in the heart of any individual, with any “vicar” , or representative in absentia. Before his passion, the Lord said He would not leave us orphaned, but that He would come again unto us. On the full day of Pentecost, the Lord, who is as good as His word (and the only worthy of that saying) CAME.

The Lord had warned that the adversary desired to have Peter, and to sift Him as wheat…to make bread; teaching; doctrine of Him. The adversary has accomplished this, though Peter himself has no part in it, his name and experienced being fallaciously set upon by the usurper. The Lord has appointed no man on earth to be in His stead, or to be the vessel and repository of the bread of heaven. Peter is no more the foundation of the Body of Christ, than Christ is David’s son, or Mary is the mother of God (who has no mother). The Church was taken out of His own RESURRECTED body, and is flesh of His flesh…bone of His bone. That bread of heaven is Christ in you, the hidden manna Jesus promises the over comer, and the responsibility of threshing, winnowing, and eating, falls upon every disciple, as prophetically depicted in Matthew 12. Beware of anything that sits on a chair and claims to be the infallible word of the Lord, except that person be the Lord, and that chair be in you. Rightly divide the scripture of truth. Pluck, thresh, winnow, eat. Christ in you by faith, is the superior sheaf of Joseph, to which all other ideas will bow the knee.

The Gospel of John begins with the answer to Jude’s question concerning how the Lord reveals himself to the individual, and to ANY individual, who asks (numbers are no obstacle with God), and yet this goes unseen in the world:

“He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

The revelation, in you, of who Christ is, is a conception. It is a conception of the very body of His resurrection. It is the power to become. It is the conception of a new man, and is the only man that will receive these things. Flesh and blood can not receive them. Not Abraham’s flesh, not Gentile flesh, not any flesh. This comes by the Father. It comes no other way. And lest any be deceived, Jesus emphasized to Peter , “My Father, which is in heaven” has revealed this to you. If simple common sense will not prevail, this saying alone, destroys any notion of a man sitting on a chair being anything akin the the Holy Father.

The question of the Revelation of Christ, and the Lord’s ways are beautifully set forth in the scriptures in places innumerable. But one of them may be searched out in an oft repeated saying, a saying that addresses both the revealings of God, and the manner in which He reveals:

“ In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbor under the vine and under the fig tree.” (Zec 3)

The Godhead is depicted in Judges 9. A son of a concubine of Gideon, Abimelech, using intrigue and lies, conspires and has all the sons of Gideon, his half brothers, all free born of wives, murdered, and himself instilled and set up as king over his people. A concubine is a bond woman. Remember…no son of a bond woman may be heir together of the Promise, with the son of a free woman. This is a spiritual truth, and an immutable one. We MUST be born again. We MUST be born free.

One free son of Gideon survived. His name was Jotham… “Jehovah is Perfect”. This surviving son of many brethren, all heirs of their Father’s body, rebukes the usurper:

“Jotham went and stood in the top of mount Gerizim, and lifted up his voice, and cried, and said unto them, Hearken unto me, ye men of Shechem, that God may hearken unto you. The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us. But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honor God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees?And the trees said to the fig tree, Come thou, and reign over us. But the fig tree said unto them, Should I forsake my sweetness, and my good fruit, and go to be promoted over the trees? Then said the trees unto the vine, Come thou, and reign over us. And the vine said unto them, Should I leave my wine, which cheers God and man, and go to be promoted over the trees? Then said all the trees unto the bramble, Come thou, and reign over us.”

The bramble knows only one way to rule. Tear flesh. The Lord reigns differently, internally, and by revelation.

The Olive Tree gives the oil, Jesus said “I am the vine, (ye are the branches), which leaves the Fig. In Jesus dwells all the fullness of the godhead bodily AND ye are complete in Him. Keep your heart with all diligence.

The Olive, the Vine (and your branch), and the Fig…a complete depiction of the garden of God. A secret place, not known to the world. Not seen of the world. Certainly not known among the kingdom of the Bramble.

It was under the Fig tree that Nathanael received the revelation of who Jesus is. Jesus told Nathanael that after this (revelation) that he, Nathanael, would see greater things:

“And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”

I strongly encourage all to make a study of the fig. You will see written in it’s marvelous way, the fig wasp, as the messengers, from fig to fig, conveying the eternal nature, in secret.

Be encouraged. Take heart. The Spirit takes the things of the Father and the Son, and shows them to us. This is in order that we may be like Him. Remember that Gideon, when called, was threshing secretly by the wine press, to hide his activities from the Midianites, who were sent to oppress Israel because of their rebellion and unbelief. Midian means “strife”. You have a secret place of the Father, a Garden of God in your heart. Keep it. Strife  is not your inheritance, nor flesh tearing usurping sons of bondage. We are joint heirs with Christ.
Within the book of Ecclesiastes are found descriptions of the fact that we are bound, as the fetus is bound by the umbilical, to the body of flesh, and to the body of resurrection. Paul wrote of the body of resurrection, that it is fashioned like the glorified body of Jesus. That it is sown in this vessel of humiliation, but that what is raised is not what is sown. He wrote that it is (by faith) not afar off, but in you now, saying that if at what moment this tent (of flesh) were dissolved, we have (present tense) a house (a body) eternal in the heavens.

Ecclesiastes 12 defines the loosing of the ties to the carnal house:

“…man goes to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets: the silver cord is loosed,  the golden bowl is broken, the pitcher is broken at the fountain, the wheel broken at the cistern. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”

By these is the spirit bound to the flesh, the silver cord, the golden bowl, the wheel.

Ecclesiastes 4 defines another sort of cord:

“…Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falls; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

Paul also expounds the threefold cord…that which binds us to the Lord within us, that which is not quickly broken, spilled out, or left at the well:

“…When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abide faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.” (1 Corinthians 13)

The composition of this cord is unseen, but is more substantial than what is seen. Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man sees, why doth he yet hope for? Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (Heb 11,Rom 8)

I am not a builder. I am a rester. I believe God. I believe Jesus.  I accept that it is the Father’s good pleasure to give to the little flock, the kingdom which is His own. I accept and believe that Jesus has accomplished all, and that I enter into HIS rest by faith.

I reject the council of the adversary, sent to try King Hezekiah, and the people, saying:

“Hearken not to Hezekiah: for thus saith the king of Assyria, Make an agreement with me by a present, and come out to me, and then eat ye every man of his own vine, and every one of his fig tree, and drink ye every one the waters of his cistern: Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards, a land of oil olive and of honey, that ye may live, and not die: and hearken not unto Hezekiah, when he persuades you, saying, The LORD will deliver us.”

There is no land “like” the kingdom of God that interests me in the least. The world and everything in it, have no place in Christ, and I want no place in them. In this time of every thought, word and deed becoming part of the public domain, I will (by the grace of God) remain hid (encrypted) with Christ in God. I have no problem fellowshipping with my brethren. But the world has no right to any message from me, save the words, “Repent toward God”. “Believe Jesus and live”. In their last days, the Hebrews judged themselves unworthy of life. They rejected the Son.

The plagues and judgments of the Great Whore of Revelation, are being poured out and drunk deeply now. Christiandom is in the same state the Hebrews were in , in their last days, resisting the Holy Ghost, embracing a lie.

To stand, to over come, is accomplished as an individual.

The Lord bless and keep all who seek Him in Truth.
