CUT IT OUT!

CUT IT OUT!

In my latest essay “The Two Witnesses Revealed” I stated ” … within two weeks there will be a partially thwarted terrorist attack at major hub of travel, like Grand Central or Penn Station… an attack that could have been worse…”

This essay, which I shared on Dec 2nd, and the video shared on Dec 3rd, (below) spoke of a partially thwarted terrorist attack on a major hub of travel, like Grand Central which the Tube is… And it COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH WORSE… Sadly, a couple of days after posting this I read “A Terrorist attack is thwarted in “London’s Underground” today!”

A man with a machete screaming, “This is for Syria” slashed a man’s throat and went after more. Thankfully he was stopped. This attack could have been so much worse. Women and children and many others could have been killed. I did NOT want to see this. I did NOT want to hear about this. I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD LIKE THIS ANYMORE!

It seems everything I have said would happen soon, has happened, and from a worldly perspective it does not seem to be showing any signs of coming to a peaceful end… Ultimately, it will ALL work together for the good of those that love the Lord, but for right now, the world has become a scary place.

You cannot turn on the news without hearing of terrorist attacks, climate change, riots, shootings, intolerance, or war. Even those who are running for the highest office on our country prove to be hateful, bigoted, greedy, and corrupt to the very core.

This is why I am taking a more proactive role in trying to bring awareness to the NONSENSE that is fueling this scourge in the earth.

Hate, prejudice, fear, lust, greed, and corruption is rampant today… and that is all we seem to be hearing about. And that is NOT a good thing, because instead of people everywhere saying, “WE HAVE TO STOP THIS INSANITY AND COOPERATE”, we see people on all sides applauding attacks oF the other.

Just yesterday, I cannot tell you how many comments from supposed Christians I read, how many hateful posts filled with savagery and venom I read. It literally brought tears to my eyes.

I REALLY had no idea when I warned everyone in July of what the world would soon become. You should go back, to my “warning essay” read it and watch the video and see how very accurate this feeling I had was. It was a sinking feeling in my chest that led me to believe if I didn’t stand up and bring awareness to what might become, all would be lost.

Back then we didn’t hear about WW3, or worry about ISIS at our door and we didn’t think climate change was going to do us all in. People simply weren’t aware of how out of control it has all gotten.

I have many times been accused of spreading fear, and condemned for what I share. I have found that I am constantly trying to open people’s eyes to their own pride and hate, while also showing them there is a better way.

People don’t want to hear about how bad things have gotten, or how much worse they still may get… I understand this.

However, we cannot put our heads in the sand and simply let things get worse.

WE CANNOT GIVE INTO FEAR AND HATE!

We HAVE to rise above the madness we see today and we need to SHOW LOVE more than ever before!

I have said many times, that you cannot overcome hate with hate. It seems like that is the only way of dealing with problems today. THIS NEEDS TO STOP!

I pray, “Lord please open their eyes, and my eyes to a brighter world. Father, help us to forgive, to have compassion, to bring an end to war, famine, and all unrighteousness.”

Jesus did the same. How many times did he CRY, because he only wanted to wake people up to the power of UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. They, like those who hate today, put their faith in a corrupt system that is doomed to fail.

Politics will not save us. Religion will not save us. Democracy will not save us. Socialism will not save us. Communism will not save us. ONLY LOVE WILL SAVE US!

Psalm 85:7
Show us your unfailing love, Lord, and grant us your salvation.

SALVATION IS HAVING LOVE REVEALED WITH YOU. UNFAILING LOVE. LOVE THAT DRAWS A MULTITUDE TO CHANGE!

1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.

The PEOPLE have forgotten that we are to LOVE our enemy, do GOOD to those who mistreat us and use us, to OFFER the other cheek, to GIVE more than another wants to take… THIS IS THE ONLY WAY HEAVEN WILL BE REVEALED ON EARTH!

I am fed up with the hateful hearts of those who claim to LOVE. I am fed up with the ignorance of those who claim wisdom. I am fed up with the intolerance of those who preach tolerance. I am fed up with the hypocrisy. I am fed up with the hate. I am fed up with the lack of love I see today.

Those who should be preaching COMPASSION, UNITY, AND LOVE are dividing us further. And this is true for EVERY RELIGION!

They Neither Know the God of Abraham, the Father of Jesus, Brahman, or Allah if they hate their brother or sister!

Today, “so-called good Christians” on the internet have taken to celebrating the defaming, and torching of Mosques.
Today, “so-called” good Jews are celebrating the death of Palestinian attackers.
Today, “so-called” good Muslims have taken to celebrating the terror attacks in the United States and elsewhere in the world.
This says nothing about all the other sects in these religions killing and condemning each other in the name of their “so-called God of War”

And yet these who hate and who kill each other and condemn each other and look down the nose of each know nothing about what their “so-called holy books” have to say about LOVE. Which is the highest spirit, and the one thing all are to strive for.

FAITH has never been about hating others! The only thing these holy books teach about hate, is HATING the IDEA of HATING OTHERS.

Jesus was accused and did not defend himself. Jesus was condemned and did not fight against it. Jesus was beaten and put to death and he only raised his voice to ask for FORGIVENESS… because he understood … as I UNDERSTAND … people today, just like then, KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO!

And so I am asking the Lord to help them to see. To guide us into the paths of righteousness. To lead into the land of promise. TO HEAL OUR BROKEN HEARTS, TO TEND TO OUR WOUNDS, AND TO WIPE AWAY OUR TEARS!

I am asking the Lord to wake the people up, to quicken everyone to the SPIRIT OF LOVE within us all.

And I am offering the Lord my life, as a living sacrifice… I do not go to Church, I do not fast, I do not sacrifice or make offerings on an altar, but A BODY I HAVE PREPARED… and of course I pray that these many years a BODY HAVE I PREPARED in all of you.

You can be IN the world but not OF the world.

The word “world” of course is a symbol for the LUSTS within mankind.

1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Jesus said when he was taken into custody, that if he were OF THIS WORLD an army would FIGHT FOR HIM… Because that is how things are handled in THIS WORLD!!!! But Jesus is NOT of this world, and neither are we.

We DO NOT have to be part of the problem, we can be the SOLUTION. We do not have to be infected with the disease of hate, we can be the CURE!

Those who hate, those who refuse to offer the other cheek, those who refuse to love and have compassion for the downtrodden and displaced, those who have decided every Muslim, Christian and Jew is their enemy, have never known the True God, regardless of what name the TRUE GOD which is LOVE is called.

PEOPLE TODAY NEED TO CUT IT OUT! This is a message that I hope spreads like wild-fire…. WE ALL NEED TO CUT IT OUT!

If you don’t do unto others as you want done unto yourself, YOU ARE NOT RIGHTEOUS, I don’t care what your religion tells you.

Because the “Creator of all” is telling “us all” to CUT IT OUT and LOVE!

Two Witnesses Revealed

TWO WITNESSES
“Two Witnesses Revealed”

The revelation I just received about the TWO WITNESSES is revolutionary. This short essay will not only decisively prove, and clearly explain who the TWO WITNESSES are, which has never truly been done before this point, and most certainly NEVER REVEALED TO BE what you will soon understand the TWO WITNESSES to be.

This is quiet exciting. This whole week, the “Witnesses” of the Book of Revelation, and more, have been haunting me. I even used a passage about being sent to “measure the Temple and Altar”, ignoring the outer court, with a REED in the YouTube video I shared below. Which is not only a life changing bit of advice, but the only wisdom that will deliver you from the hard times ahead of us all… You can view that video after finishing this short paper,which by the way will also declare that the TWO WITNESSES ARE HERE right now! You and I are PROOF of this.

And soon you will agree.

For many years, the two witnesses of revelation were portrayed as men that walked around shooting fire from their mouths. They were said to be TWO LITERAL MEN like Elijah or Moses. But this never sat right with me. There was part of me that always believed the TWO WITNESSES were sooooo much more. However, before today I had no idea how incredibly remarkable the revelation of who they truly are really is.

Let us start simple. Let us see who scripture declares these “TWO WITNESSES” to be. Let’s take these a couple of LINES at a time.

Revelation 11
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two OLIVE TREES, and the two CANDLE STICKS standing before the God of the earth.

First of all, what is a WITNESS? Well, think in legal terms. A Witness is someone who has “witnessed something”, “understands something that others do not”,”saw something others have not seen”,”heard something that others have not heard”. A WITNESS is then brought before the Judge and Jury and COURT ROOM and EXPLAINS TO EVERYONE what they saw, heard, understood, and know to be true (so help them God).

And who is called to be a WITNESS in the world?

Isaiah 43:12
I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore YOU are my WITNESSES, saith the Lord, that I am God.

Well according to Isaiah, the WITNESSES of God, are those who KNOW of NO STRANGE GOD among them.

But, let us take this chapter in context. WHO was God speaking to? Who did God literally call his WITNESSES? – NOTICE it is a PLURAL WORD (witnesses) – MEANING TWO — Two witnesses NOT ONE.

Ironically, (because I am Jacob Israel literally) God was speaking to JACOB in scripture.

Isaiah 43
But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O JACOB, and he that formed thee, O ISRAEL, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

Literally, according to scripture JACOB – ISRAEL – these are the TWO WITNESSES of scripture.

But how can this be? You will say. For there is ONLY ONE Jacob, who became ISRAEL. We understand, when looking deeper that Jacob is the first man, and Israel is the last man. Much like Adam is the first and Jesus is the last Adam. We understand by these stories that there are TWO IN ONE BED. One is taken AND one is left. – the first IGNORANT MAN (who you think you are) and the last Man (who God declares you to be) – Howbeit, the FIRST MAN is earthy (ignorant) while the LAST MAN is from HEAVEN ABOVE. THESE are the TWO MEN we read about in Revelation if truth be told. But most aren’t ready to understand this. And so, the man JACOB ISRAEL became an allegory for everyone to learn from. It is a picture of ALL OF GOD’S CREATION. His first and last born if you will.

Hosea 11:1
When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my SON out of Egypt.

Here we see JACOB ISRAEL is quite clearly called God’s SON. But it was the people of Israel that were called out of Egypt. And guess what? Those are Jacob Israel as well. This is why, I was given this pen name. Why I was inspired to use the last name Israel, and chose to be called Jacob.

Isaiah 44:5
One shall say, I am the Lord’s; and another shall call himself by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe with his hand unto the Lord, and surname himself by the name of Israel
.

The name JACOB ISRAEL is a symbol… It is a WITNESS for everyone. In these two names Jacob and Israel, we see the story of a changed life. The man who wrestled with God (1 witness) and with man (2nd witness) and who finally overcome.

So, am I saying I am ONE OF THE TWO WITNESSES? No, I am not saying that, not ONE of two at least.

I am saying ALL OF GOD’S CHILDREN ARE THE TWO WITNESSES THEMSELVES. Just as JACOB ISRAEL (one man) was called WITNESSES in Isaiah.

Stay with me, it will all soon become clear.

I am not just ONE WITNESS… Today, I understand I am “TWO”. The FIRST MAN and the LAST MAN. The EARTH MAN and the SPIRIT MAN.

These are the TWO WITNESSES. A witness in the physical plane, the carnal plane, and a witness in the spiritual plain. One witness in the earth and one in HEAVEN above.

Because in the mouth of TWO WITNESSES everything is established.

You will say, “Jacob, you are ONE man. How can you be the two witnesses? How can I be?”

Well, look at what Jesus said about himself.

John 8:16-18
16 But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. 17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of TWO WITNESSES is true. 18 I am ONE who testifies for myself; my OTHER witness is the Father, who sent me.”

(TWO WITNESSES right there)

Can you see?

This is why Jesus said, I am IN the Father and the Father is IN me. TWO IN ONE. The TWO SHALL BECOME ONE. CHRIST IN YOU! This is the hope of glory. The TWO WITNESSES becoming one in the land, walking hand in hand, saying only what the father says, doing only what the Father inspires, and TELLING THE WORLD what has been witnessed, so they too will turn from their ways.

I AM THE TWO WITNESSES of SCRIPTURE, AND SO ARE YOU!

But wait there is more.

The Two Witness shall PROPHESY — not what does that mean?

Well according to scripture, PROPHECY IS…

19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day-star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
21 For the prophecy came not in old-time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

the TWO WITNESSES will be as lights to those in darkness. They will be given revelation and inspiration and they will be MOVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. Much the way I am. For a long time now, I have declared that God is INSPIRATION and I can only share as I am inspired to share. This is why I know now that those things that I say and declare are not just possibilities, they are absolutes, for just like me, if you are the TWO WITNESSES whatever you bind in heaven will be bound in earth, and loosed as well.

5 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.
6 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.

Now, this passage is not just humbling it can become down right frightening if you believe that these TWO WITNESSES literally have the power to bring any plague to the earth as often as they will, to prove to a sickened, and blind, lost world, that there is more to the Father then they have been told.

These TWO WITNESSES were given the power to shut up the heavens and create all sorts of devastation on the earth. Well, if this be the end times (the end of the corrupt worldly system) then these two witnesses should begin to revealed to the world. Soon, THESE TWO WITNESSES would be known by almost everyone in the world because of the things they say, and the declarations “they” make that convicts the world of it’s truly wicked ways.

It would be like this…

Let’s pretend for a moment that I AM the Two Witnesses (as you also are but don’t yet believe)… If the story is primarily literal. Than I could say, within two weeks there will be a partially thwarted terrorist attack in the east coast, that could have been much worse… I could be as specific as to say it will happen near one of our major hubs of travel, like Grand Central or Penn Station… If it were meant to be taken literally I could say, there will be a massive earthquake in the south that will leave millions without power if the world does not humble themselves and follow after peace… If this were literally true, than I could say all of that, document it, prove that I declared such and IT WOULD HAPPEN! (This is the way we sort of believe these Witnesses work right?)

I know what you are saying… “well Jacob, you sort of have been doing just that since July, and all of it has been coming to pass as you said.” — To that I reply, I have thought the same thing, but honestly, who am I to say that I KNOW THE WAY OF GOD… I only share what I feel inspired to share. I only put my faith in the words given to me to share. I pray that I have the truth and only the truth, that I be used for God’s will and that I follow after peace and love instead of greed and wickedness. I am only a servant, just like you… So, even though I could make those claims and they would literally come true, IF THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS ALONE, but I believe there is more to learn.

My friends, this story is on TWO LEVELS for there are TWO WITNESSES… and the SPIRITUAL is what we must CONCERN ourselves with.

For example, it will not be LITERAL FIRE that comes out of the WITNESSES MOUTH… if will be a purifying word of truth/fire.

The FIRE that comes from their mouth is not LITERAL FIRE… these are WORDS, that when HEARD will burn away any lie that resides in their enemy’s heart. These WITNESSES in effect, can kill off the carnal nature of man, simply by telling their enemies the truth. Much like how Jesus cast out the devils. Their words will be as fire. Remember, CHRIST BAPTIZED with FIRE… he never used water, SIMPLY HIS WORDS.

Jeremiah 5:14
Wherefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.

The WORD is TRUTH in their MOUTH.. and this is “FIRE”… which is why Jeremiah compared the people to WOOD in the above passage.

Our (two witnesses) words are going to burn the lies people have believed away… FOR WE ARE THE TWO WITNESSES. Me and You.

If you don’t yet believe me, let me offer you more.

These TWO WITNESSES are God’s servants. AND SO ARE THE DISCIPLES.

Acts 26:16
I have appeared to you to appoint YOU as a SERVANT and as a WITNESS of what you have seen and will see of me.

I am the SERVANT and the WITNESS. You are the SERVANT and the WITNESS.

The TWO WITNESSES are not two literal men… Just as they are not TWO literal CANDLESTICKS/LAMPSTANDS

Matthew 5:15
Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house
.

I am, you are, the LAMP STAND AND CANDLESTICK!

Notice, the beautiful description of what it was like for Zacheriah to understand what the LAMPSTAND AND OLIVE TREES (two witnesses) were. Like a man waking from a dream.

Zechariah 4:1-3
Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. 2 He asked me, “What do you see?”
I answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”

What is this describing, besides the TEMPLE OF GOD – which is what WE ARE!

1 Kings 6:32-34
32 The two doors also were of olive tree; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubims and palm trees and open flowers, and overlaid them with gold, and spread gold upon the cherubims, and upon the palm trees.
33 So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall.

NOTICE the DOORS of the TEMPLE are made of TWO OLIVE trees… You ever wonder why? the OLIVE is a great allegory for the EYE of man (they even sort of look like an eye). If the DOORS to the TEMPLE are OLIVE TREES and the DOORS to our SOUL are our EYES, and EYES are a symbol of WISDOM AND “SEEING THE TRUTH”. It becomes easy to know why the OLIVE TREE was so often used to describe the TWO WITNESSES. As well as all of JACOB/ISRAEL (God’s elect according to grace lest any man should boast)

Psalm 52:8
But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever

But if that isn’t enough scripture to prove that JACOB/ISRAEL – God’s Children – are the OLIVE TREES… Then take it up with Paul, who very clearly calls Israel the OLIVE TREE… both Natural Branches and Wild Branches which were grafted in.

Romans 11
17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert grafted in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the OLIVE TREE; 18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee
.

It should be clear that the OLIVE TREE is Me and You as well.

Now, let us put it all together.

WHO ARE THE TWO WITNESSES OF GOD according to scripture?

1) Jacob/Israel (WITNESSES) – I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore YOU are my WITNESSES, saith the Lord, that I am God. Isaiah 43:12

2) Jacob/Israel (WITNESSES) = God’s People delivered from Egypt. When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my SON out of Egypt. Hosea 11:1

3) The TWO WITNESSES are the OLIVE TREES and CANDLESTICKS — Me and You.

4) The TWO WITNESSES are not two literal people at all. But TWO WITNESSES in the world… one a natural/earthen witness and one a spiritual. Just as Jesus said… John 8:16-18 – 16 But if I do judge, my decisions are true, because I am not alone. I stand with the Father, who sent me. 17 In your own Law it is written that the testimony of TWO WITNESSES is true. 18 I am ONE who testifies for myself; my OTHER witness is the Father, who sent me.”

I and YOU are the TWO WITNESSES of Revelation. And today is our revealing to the world. We have been given POWER and we shall PROPHECY a thousand two hundred and three score days. And why is this AMOUNT of TIME important… because 1260 days is also mentioned as the time of the woman fleeing into the wilderness. That’s right, this is where is gets freaky… THIS IS THE DAY WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW! It is the day I wrote about back in July and I believe it is happening right now. A great time of trouble, while the CHILD OF PROMISE is still in the womb, the birth pangs getting closer and closer together.

Revelation 12 – The Woman and the Dragon
12 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”[a] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

This is also the time Michael and his army begins its great war with the Dragon… whatever is bound in heaven is bound in earth indeed, and whatever loosed in heaven loosed in the earth.

1260 days — this will be the length of the Two Witnesses prophecy in the earth. 42 months. 3.5 years. Ironically, the exact amount of time of Jesus’ ministry.

One last scripture before closing this essay and asking you to not only watch my video posted below for a very important message, but please do subscribe, comment, share, let people know about what you have learned here… DON’T HIDE YOUR LIGHT UNDER A BUSHEL… YOU ARE A CANDLESTICK that needs to SHINE for all to see.

WHO ARE THE WITNESSES? — I am and You are! So let’s prophecy together until that CHILD IS BORN! To some the words you receive may seem foreign, but as you know (if you read my article on speaking in tongues)

Acts 1:8
But ye shall receive power, when the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea and Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

The Good Samaritan and The Refugee

The Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan and The Refugee

Yesterday, I posted a video called, “Why Fear Refugees?” it is a video that is meant to provoke thought and hopefully inspire healing around the world. Of course, privately and publicly some people took issue. I understand that. The day we are living in, as I said months ago, is a different one. Recently, I posted a video and an essay titled “No Peace for the Wicked” where I explained that I believed shortly we would be struck to the very heart with fear. Fear of terrorist attacks right here in the un-walled countries like the United States, England, France, etc. It was not long after that, in fact just under two weeks, that we heard of the Paris attacks. This troubled me, because I knew that mass hysteria would follow. And it has. Many are fighting to keep refugees out of their countries, not just the men, but the women and the children too. I understand this. I worry for my children as well. However, in times like these we must never lose sight of LOVE. We who call ourselves children of the most high must not be ruled by selfish fear.

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

God has not given us the spirit of selfish fear and yet the world’s narrative is fighting to have us all jump on board.

Let me remind you what fear gave way to in Nazi Germany. Not to mention, how fear is used to turn brother against brother, son and daughter against father and mother. Fear is the enemy of truth and peace. This is why it is so important that we turn within and seek a true answer, a true path, instead of blindly following the path of fear laid out for us all by a greedy corrupt carnal system.

In this video, I simply shared my heart and I pray that it does some good. For that is all anyone should want in this world.

Before reading the rest of this essay, I pray you take a moment to watch the video posted here. If you already have your mind made up, I don’t judge you, there is enough of that in the world already, I simply ask that you scroll down and read my exposition of the Good Samaritan story below. I have shared this years ago, but it definitely needs repeating. So please click the video link first and then read, or scroll down and enjoy.

Luke 10:30 And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbor unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

You got to love how Jesus always starts his parable off with “a certain man” –

There is a good reason for this. The words “CERTAIN MAN” is analogous with EVERY MAN/WOMAN – it is no one in particular and everyone in particular.

Now, upon a simple reading of this above passage of scripture you would think this story is about some poor guy who got robbed and only one person helped him. But like I always says, not everything is as it literally seems.

This parable has more to do with FAITH and BELIEF than it has to do with literally being robbed. The thieves more to do with those who steal from our faith, then our pockets.

So, let’s tear these scriptures apart and SEE (understand) what is REALLY going on.

Luke 10:30
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves.

We can learn something from the description of where this “certain man” left, Jerusalem, which in HEBREW means “Teaching of PEACE”.

So this “certain man” left the “TEACHING OF PEACE “(Jerusalem) to go to Jericho, which means “It’s MOON” – Symbolic of the FALSE LIGHT. The MOON is symbolic of MAN’S SOUL as it simply REFLECTS the SON/SUN. The MOON is not the SOURCE of LIGHT (Truth) it is a very dim reflection of it.

The SUN is to the SON as the Moon is to MANS WAYS/TEACHING.

This is interesting to note because this CERTAIN MAN left Jerusalem to go to JERICHO…

This certain man LEFT THE TEACHING OF PEACE for the FALSE LIGHT. And this is what so many people are ignorantly doing today. God wakes them up inside, they want to know God, and unfortunately they leave what is being taught within and go to “religion”. AND THEY GET ROBBED AND BEATEN AND ABUSED FOR IT!

Been there, done that myself.

Another clue to this are the word’s “went down” — whenever we read about people ascending in a story or descending in a story there is a spiritual reason. The CERTAIN MAN went down… he descended… he left HIGHER THINKING for LOWER THINKING.

You see, this story is an allegory of MANKIND leaving the TRUTH of God for the IMITATION/Religion – BADDDDD RELIGION…. And yes, most of us do this very same thing. I did it, you probably did it, or you are doing it now.

I know what you’re saying, “That’s a stretch, Jacob.. Jerusalem and Jericho are literal places, the meaning of their names isn’t significant at all…

Well, lets look at the next line…

Luke 10:30
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves.

This CERTAIN MAN left Jerusalem for Jericho and fell among THIEVES. Oh, sure you could say that he was just robbed literally… BUT, THAT DOESN’T HELP YOU SPIRITUALLY DOES IT?

Our literal possessions don’t matter to God, do they?

Matthew 6:20
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt…

Let’s remember, Jesus was just asked a question about how one inherits eternal life. This is the way Jesus chose to answer.

Jesus is TEACHING about how to inherit ETERNAL LIFE not about how to avoid getting robbed, or some self-defense technique…

As I said earlier, this is a story of “MANKIND” leaving THE TEACHING OF PEACE (Jerusalem) for MAN’S TEACHINGS (The Moon/Jericho).

Now we know, there is only ONE WAY to find the FATHER and that is THROUGH THE SON. (Becoming the SON(child of God) that is)

This is what Jesus is telling the lawyer. He is actually showing the lawyer that the LAWYER was a THIEF to begin with.

Of course, the Lawyers and Pharisees of the world could never see this because they are too busy keeping people from the Kingdom. That was their thing, all about straining for gnats and swallowing camels… Making long prayers, taking the choice seats, and pointing out everyone’s sin, while never really coming to the knowledge of the truth.

So, let’s entertain the idea that I am correct here. Let’s imagine that this story is about Mankind leaving the TRUTH for MAN’S TEACHINGS and getting robbed spiritually… If this be so, who then are the THIEVES?

Well, Jesus tells us…

John 10:1
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

Look at that, Jesus says THOSE THAT TRY and ENTER THE KINGDOM ANY OTHER WAY than the way, truth, and life… Is a THIEF AND A ROBBER.

Isn’t that something? This paper is about MANKIND leaving GOD’S TRUTH for MAN’S LIES and they FALL AMONG THIEVES… and Jesus says, the thieves are liars who promise entrance into the Kingdom another way, without CHRIST, without the TRUTH.

Now, let me just point out.

Just because you “Literally” say “Jesus is your Lord and Savior” and go to church every Sunday and read your bible and pray… that DOES NOT MEAN you worship GOD. Don’t get angry, these aren’t my words… Take it up with the scriptures.

Matthew 7:21
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

That means a literal belief in a literal Man is not what it means to have the TRUTH. The hope of Glory if CHRIST IN YOU. Salvation is believing on his name (nature) … Salvation is UNDERSTANDING THE TRUTH about God. Salvation is always LOVE.

There are hundreds of denominations in Christianity that claim Jesus as their Lord and Savior, who are as lost as those who worship the bark off a tree. This is why we MUST ask God, “Teach me the Truth, no matter what the cost” and daily seek His Face (NOT LITERALLY HIS FACE). To seek God’s face, is to RECOGNIZE the TRUTH.

And when we SEEK GOD we MUST get rid of EVERY THING else we have held unto and believed to be true, that was not TRUE.

We must let go of everything man has taught us for what the Holy Spirit WITHIN US teaches us.

SO, to be saved we HAVE TO LET GO OF ANY THING THAT IS NOT TRUE. We must be purged of the OLD MAN, the OLD THINKING, WE MUST PUT ON THE MIND OF CHRIST, and get rid of everything else.

We saw how Paul had those on his Prison Ship get rid of everything in the boat that was WEIGHING them down so the STORM would not overtake them. A perfect picture of how we have to get rid of all the lies we have believed over the years and allow Christ the TRUTH to set us free.

But back to our story here.

Luke 10:30
And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves.

You see, when we first enter religion… many of us, fall among THIEVES. We enter in thinking we will get closer to God but these so-called Teachers end up stealing from us. They rob us of so much, our spirit, our finances, our friends, our fun, our routines, like the FROGS that plagued Egypt (if you have eyes to see this) these CROAKING RELIGIOUS LEADERS get into everything, our food, our bedroom, every aspect of our lives these Religious Leaders try to control. This is what Jesus’ parable is about, Bad Religion.

Let’s go to rest of this verse.

…which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead

RAIMENT is a key word here people… Once again, we are not talking about some real life thugs robbing a guy and stealing his clothes. No, we are talking about a covering, “spiritual Raiment” – and all we need to do is going to scripture to find out what it really is.

Revelation 3:5
He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment;

RAIMENT is another word for clothes. Clothes we put on and take off. God clothes us with TRUTH and HUMILITY.

1 Peter 5:5
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

You see, here is another allegory for us to uncover. Many people, wanting to have a relationship with God, ignorantly leave Godly beliefs like humility, acceptance, forgiveness, for the love for Religious pride, condemnation, judgment, and more.

So, this “Certain Man” went to Religion to find God and ended up being robbed and stripped of every good thought he had when he was in Jerusalem (the teaching of peace)

These Thieves are bad, bad, bad, RELIGIOUS leaders, who lure you in and take, take, take from you. And they leave you HALF DEAD (Carnal and ignorant) – As the LAWYER in this story, most certainly did on a regular basis.

Whenever you leave the TRUTH OF GOD for the WAYS OF MAN, you will always find some Thief waiting to rob you.

This puts a whole new spin, however on the crucifixion. As Christ was right there IN BETWEEN TWO THIEVES…

You see, even the THIEVES can repent and find their dwelling in paradise in Christ.

Moving on:

“And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.”

By now, you should understand why the Priest and Levite passed the robbed, naked, beaten, half dead man on the other side. They weren’t going to help this “certain man” at all. For they were THIEVES themselves. If however, the man had something to OFFER THEM, they would… But at this point, he had nothing.

Bad Religious Leaders cannot help those abused by other Bad Religious Leaders. The Priest and Levite, claimed the things of God, claimed to know God, but ignored the hurt member of their faith. They can’t see the pain bad religion causes, they can’t see the damage they are doing to their blind flock. Because they are blind themselves.

Jesus said, when I was naked you DID NOT clothe me. This is a picture of the BODY OF CHRIST, being robbed of the TRUTH of God they should be CLOTHED IN!

WISDOM is what the half dead need. And this parable speaks it clearly.

“But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.”

This is the NEIGHBOR who we must LOVE AS OURSELVES. Those being abused and robbed of the TRUTH in BAD RELIGION. And that pretty much sums up everyone, from every faith, and those without faith, bad religion has robbed the world blind!

We, are to be like the Samaritan which comes from the Hebrew ROOT word “GUARDIANSHIP” – We appear to the Lawyers and Pharisees of the world as “Heretics” who don’t know the God of the Hebrews, but a TREE IS KNOWN BY ITS FRUIT… And this Samaritan’s fruit was SWEET.

We are to be the GUARDIANS of the day. We are to be the bringer of LIGHT, if CHRIST be in us. There are many hurting today, many that Religion has robbed and abused, WE MUST PICK UP THE PIECES FOR THEM WITH LOVE.

The word COMPASSION, means to SUFFER WITH. We MUST ANSWER their SUFFERING and BIND UP THEIR WOUNDS.

How do we do it? You ask.

WITH OIL AND WINE! – Yes, this is another allegory. Of course, Neosporin would help a healing wound better than oil and wine, so we must see what is truly being USED TO HEAL here.

OIL is a symbol. It is used on the sick and used to anoint Kings. First consider how oil is made, it is the ESSENCE of the OLIVE, and our symbolic “OIL” that WE must pour out is the ESSENCE of CHRIST, which is TRUTH/WISDOM.

OIL is a symbol for WISDOM.

Psalm 104:15
And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.

OIL makes a face SHINE …Want to see what else causes a man’s face to shine?

Ecclesiastes 8:1
Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine,

WISDOM makes a face to SHINE.

This puts a whole new spin on why Moses’ face was shining after coming down from the mountain of God. And why Jesus’ face was shining on the Mount of Transfiguration. WISDOM IS THE KEY, A TREE OF LIFE, OF ALL THERE IS TO GET, GET WISDOM! 🙂

OIL = WISDOM

WINE = SPIRIT OF TRUTH

This is what we use to heal the wounds of those who have fallen among THIEVES (those who try to enter the Kingdom any other way than Christ)

When BAD RELIGION steals, we BIND UP.

When they are left NAKED, we CLOTHE THEM with the WISDOM OF THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH!

This is what it means, to LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF. Now go and do likewise.

So the question really becomes, when you see the Refugee beaten, and half-starved, will you pass by because of irrational fear or will you feed him, or her, clothe him or her, and shelter him or her? That question I leave to you.

I try and live by the golden rule… Do unto others as you would like others to do to you. If we all lived by this simple principal there would be peace on earth indeed.

A World Of Illusion

illusion

LOSE YOUR LIFE TO SAVE IT

Matthew 16:25
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

So what does it mean to save your life or to lose your life? Some have taught it means we must give up everything, home, clothes, life, fun, etc. etc. and live only for God. Others have said, we die to our ego and desires and seek only the things of God. And yes, even more have taught that we stop receiving and we live a life of giving.

Now all of these are all well and good, but what really do these scriptures mean? What is the great advice Jesus is giving us here? You see scripture is good for our instruction, and in it, is hidden the very KEY to living a fulfilled life and overcoming this world in Christ (the power and wisdom of God). For that is what CHRIST is…

1 Corinthians 1:24
But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, CHRIST the POWER of GOD, and the WISDOM of God.

And the scriptures tells us the only way to find TRUE LIFE is in CHRIST.

Colossians 3:3
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

Our LIFE is hid with CHRIST (the power and wisdom of God) IN GOD… So our life is IN GOD, and the power and wisdom that comes with knowing this… What it means to be dead would be the opposite of life, if life is in the power and wisdom of God, then death would be the opposite. Death would be ignorance. In fact, that is what death is… it is to be carnally minded.

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.

To be focused on CARNAL things, temporal things, worldly things is IGNORANCE… Which equals spiritual death. Meaning when we are focused on things that don’t truly matter, instead of the TRUTH that does, we are not living our life, we are existing in darkness.

The world we live can almost be looked upon as an illusion. The world outside of us is TEMPORAL, SENSUAL, meaning it is not INFINITE, it will dissolve away. And the only way we know and experience this world is by our five senses. (sight, touch, taste, smell, hearing) There in lies the trap.

We focus so much of our attention on the cares of this world, which are the very THORNS that strangle the life within us. We worry so much about the cares of this world, the bills, the thrills, the lies, the ties, the ups, the downs, the smiles, the frowns, that we have been tricked into being it’s prisoner. These THORNS which were placed on JESUS’ head, are the same thorns thrust into ours. (Our Thinking)

Luke 8:14
And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.

There is not peace or hope in the sensual world. We are IN THE WORLD but we are NOT OF THE WORLD. Which is why this world will never bring us joy. Our joy must be found in LOVE and LIFE, in Christ (the power and wisdom of God)… but as long as we are IN THE WORD (which is the lusts of the eyes, lust of the flesh, and the pride of life) we are meant to be LIGHTS OF IT!

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world

And we must find a way to let that light shine, we must find a way to LIFE OUR LIFE by finding the TRUTH that is HIDDEN WITHIN US…
Now, despite what many say we can find the TRUTH hidden away in many things, not just scripture. We don’t need the bible to know God, we don’t need the Torah to know God, or any other holy book. Abraham did not have a bible, nor did Isaac or Jacob, or many others for that matter. You see, God is within us all, and His HOLY SPIRIT is our teacher.

Let me briefly explain what the HOLY SPIRIT is… First of all, the word HOLY simply means “SET APART, SEPARATE”… The word SPIRIT literally translates into MIND… in fact Jesus said, his WORDS, which are spoken thoughts” are SPIRIT…
So the HOLY SPIRIT is a MINDSET that is SEPARATE from the world. The POWER and WISDOM of God, which is CHRIST, which is our LIFE is our guide, our savior, and our great reward.

And it is within us all… so it doesn’t matter if you have a bible or any holy book or not, what matters is the truth being revealed from within you… WHICH IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

The truth is taught/remembered regardless of where and when a person lives. In fact, God says, the time will come for us when we will need no other teacher than God Himself…

Jeremiah 31:34
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.

So is this world an illusion? Are we like Neo from the movie the MATRIX, slaves in a prison we cannot see? The answer is YES. The Result is death and the only way out is CHRIST. But here is the rub, you see humanity has been conditioned to put their faith on what their senses tell them is true. For most, SEEING IS BELIEVING… For me, however, Believing is UNDERSTANDING and seeing the world around me can also be looked at, as if a man be walking through a dream.

“Row, Row, Row, Your boat, Life is BUT A DREAM.”

A MAJORITY of scripture deals with SLEEP. Humanity spends 1/3 its life ASLEEP… Believe it or not, 1/3 of scripture deals with the SLEEP put on man.

When we sleep we are no longer CONSCIOUS of the temporal world. We drift off into nothingness (it seems) or we drift off and our mind creates new wonders, new worlds, our experiences in these dreams can be terrifying and wonderful, and in those moments we believe our experience to be real. yet the moment we wake from our SLEEP, we understand the NIGHTMARE OR DREAM was a FIGMENT of our IMAGINATION. It was not real. No loved ones were ever lost, no crimes were ever committed, no adultery, no sin, nothing, it was all MAKE BELIEVE.

But when we wake and re-enter this world, we call EARTH. We are snapped back into what we call REALITY. But the question should be asked… IS IT REAL?

THE LIFE WE LIVE HERE, regardless of what, and how, we live it. Is a mere shadow of eternity. It is whisp, here today and gone tomorrow. So what is it about OUR LIFE here that we should LOSE, so we can SAVE ourselves?

Many interpret dreams and their significance, but few pay attention to the SYMBOLS in the sensual world, the SYMBOLS and PARABLES humanity is living in. You want to find out what is going on spiritually, look at what is going on physically. For everything around you, where you livem, what you drive, how you eat, your relationships, how your children act, who you love, what you hate, to the name of the street you may be living on… THEY ARE ALL PIECES TO THE PUZZLE called THE MEANING OF LIFE!

Romans 1:20
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

We understand the things of God, also by understanding the things God has made. No matter where you turn, there is a lesson, God is teaching. Think of your life as a great adventure. You are lost in the Matrix of TEMPORAL THINGS. We know everything we see around us, will one day perish… But who we are, in ESSENCE does not and cannot end. The question we should ask, is, why then do we continue to put our faith in things that will fail us.

The great trick of the CARNAL MIND (Our ignorance/enemy/liar) is the belief that things of this world can save us. Jesus told us, to be in the world, but not of the world. We are commanded to OVERCOME THE WORLD.

And what is the WORLD? What are the CARES OF THIS WORLD? What is this WORLD we must OVERCOME as Christ overcame?

1 John 2:16
For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

The world is our SENSUAL CONNECTION to the ILLUSION created by the FALL.

Ephesians 5:14
Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

We need to WAKE UP from the DEATH of our SLEEP. (Our ignorance) the dream tells us GOD IS FAR, FAR, AWAY. The DREAM tells us, we are horrible, terrible, sinners, doomed for destruction. But CHRIST came to SAVE not to CONDEMN.

As the LIGHT OF THE MORNING wakes us up after the long sleep in the NIGHT. The LIGHT of CHRIST wakes us from the IGNORANCE we have existed in.

Genesis 28:16
And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not.

When you wake up, when CHRIST (The power and wisdom of God) GIVES YOU LIGHT (THE TRUTH) you will know GOD is IN YOU. And you will no longer look outside of yourself for a SAVIOR, for you will know that CHRIST IN YOU is the HOPE and the GLORY.

So what does it mean to LOSE YOUR LIFE, to SAVE IT?

Does God want us to give up our homes, families, and lives pack our bags and become a missionary? Does he want us to turn our backs on our hopes and dreams of being a singer, actor, architect, chef, etc. etc… Does God want us to live a life that is not a life at all, OR… Does God want us to live a life that is full, filled with peace, and every one of our desires met, because it is God who placed those desires in our hearts to begin with?

There is more to us than we have believed. Who we THINK WE ARE, is NOT WHO WE ARE. Like NEO in the MATRIX, one day we will wake up and find out all of our labor, suffering, hardship, and pain, was in vain. We will LET GO OF THE REIGNS of our LIVES, FOR THE REIGN OF HEAVEN (God’s ways)

Which by the way, is the proper translation for KINGDOM. The KINGDOM (reign) of God, is not a literal castle, it is being bridled and led by the LORDS OF HOSTS.

In scientific terms, A HOST is simply a VESSEL used by ANOTHER. That is what we are in a nutshell, we are the HOST that GOD uses to fulfill His great purpose in OUR LIVES. But we have been conditioned that GOD IS SEPERATE FROM US, and that WE (our ignorant) ego is in control. We have been conditioned to seek salvation without, not within. It is this ANTICHRIST nature that sits in the TEMPLE of GOD (OUR MIND) and declares HIMSELF to be GOD. Mankind, in their SLEEP OF IGNORANCE (DEATH/CARNALITY) believes HE IS IN CONTROL of his LIFE. But he is A LIE, a creation of IGNORANCE.

You are not who you think you are, you are MORE.

Want to find out who you are? Seek first the Kingdom of God and EVERYTHING will be added unto you. And what is the Kingdom (Reign) of God that God commands us to seek? John tells us, The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.

We are meant to be ruled by Righteousness, Peace and Joy in God’s Holy Spirit. God desires us to live the life that he has ordered for us to live. So how do we achieve Righteousness and joy?

By dying to who we THINK WE ARE, and SAVING who we REALLY ARE in CHRIST.

2 Thessalonians 2:8
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming (revealing)

Scripture states, Christ cannot COME (be revealed, manifested in the flesh) UNTIL the ANTICHRIST (son of perdition) = OUR CARNAL EGO is revealed for what it is.

In other words, people, who we think we are, is the ENEMY OF GOD. And once we learn, that the OLD MAN MUST DIE, the NEW MAN is renewed within, and the OLD MAN (EGO/CARNAL MAN/1ST ADAM) is destroyed with the BRIGHTNESS (TRUTH) of his coming (revelation)

To find this, is not easy. It is not even an easy thing to write or tell. But God has a plan. Like a winepress, we will be tested until pure.

Jesus taught, there WILL be tribulation in this world. He told us to endure until the end, he taught us that to know the Kingdom we MUST pick up our cross daily and follow him. So there will be hard times, there will be pain and suffering, but how we react to those trials will directly affect whether we inherit the kingdom on earth. We will learn that we REAP WHAT WE SOW, we will learn, there is NO OTHER WAY IN, but the DEATH TO SELF (ego) and the RESURRECTION of Christ.

In the book of Hebrews 12:11, Paul writes, no chastening for the present seems joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

You see suffering, and enduring, produces humility and peace. Sounds crazy, but the truth is THERE IS SUFFERING AND TRIBULATION in the world. Everyone has hard times. We cannot control the tough blows that come our way. However, Jesus in the scriptures above was giving us great wisdom. Wisdom that will SAVE us, Wisdom, that will produce that joy and righteousness, wisdom that will lead us to the Kingdom of God. Everything in our lives, is a symbol. Look at it, pray about it, seek God to see why this or that has come upon you. Nothing happens by chance, and nothing is meaningless in this life.

OUR THOUGHTS are the key to freedom. The FREEDOM is found when OUR THOUGHTS ARE GOD’S.

“I only say what the Father tells me to say”

This is why, scriptures tells us that we will be judged for every idle thought and word. We must allow GOD TO TAKE THE REIGNS… We must LOSE OUR LIFE (EGO/CARNAL/THINKING WE ARE IN CONTROL) and WAKE UP and realize, “God is GOD and there is NO ONE BESIDE GOD.”

God has long promised a day of rest that he prepared for man where he will cease from his own labors. Pay close attention to those last words… CEASE FROM OUR LABORS… This is the Sabbath day rest and on this day we are to rest from OUR WORKS. That’s it. We are to REST. We are to CEASE OUR LABOR.

When Christ says, he that will save his life will lose it, he is not telling us to give up living the life God gave us. It is merely giving up the thought that we are in control, IT IS GIVING UP THE ILLUSION that salvation and TRUTH is found outside of us, FOUND IN MANMADE DOCTRINE AND RELIGION.

We are told “do NOT put our trust in man”. But, when trouble comes we immediately begin to work out how WE can fix these situations. We work out every twist and turn, and usually we enter into a wicked thought and way, where we begin to manipulate and lie, and most of the time we get angry and take our frustrations out on others. We put our trust in MAN, we put our trust in OURSELVES not God.

When trouble comes, WE try to SAVE our lives, but in our own pathetic effort, we end worse than we were to begin with. We end up LOSING the life God wants us to live, one filled with Righteousness, Peace and Joy.

You see this passage, found in all the gospels is teaching us that God is in control.

When we put on the flesh of our older brother Esau (self effort, carnal thinking, works) to try to trick the Father into delivering us our blessing, we end up suffering greatly because of it. We in fact, Lose our life by trying to save it.

Now I want to point out what our LIFE is to begin with. This will add yet another layer hidden from view to the literal scholar as opposed to the spiritual seeker. Scripture teaches us clearly, what our LIFE is…

Colossians 3:4
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Through self effort, we lose Christ, we lose the Truth and the Way into the Kingdom. Through self effort we put our faith in man and not God. This is why Jesus was so clear when speaking on this subject.

Paul understood and declared in Romans 14:7 “None lives to himself, and no man dies to himself.” You see, it is error to believe we are in control. We live unto the Lord and we die unto the Lord. We must give up the belief that this is “Our” life, and that we can rule it.

24Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

To find the Kingdom we must give up TRYING to find the Kingdom to begin with. We must learn our lessons. We must willingly reap what we have sown. We must forgive those who hurt us, pray for those who use us, and love others as we love ourselves, do unto others as we would want done… This is a great truth and until we do these things we will never know that peace that passes understanding… Which means, we MUST first UNDERSTAND this lesson to find peace.

Truly, it shouldn’t matter if we lose out job, our relationships, if we get sick, if we are used and abused, if a storm takes our homes away, but it does matter to us and when tragedy comes, when hard times knock at our door, it hurts. But if we continue to put these Burdens on our own shoulders, and continue to try to “save our life” instead of understanding God is in control, and taking the yoke of Christ whose burden is light, we will only make things harder for ourselves.

Matthew 16:25
For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

We need to lose our own efforts, we need to stop worrying about everything that happens, we need to give that up and let our suffering go. We need to LOSE OUR LIFE to save it. Jesus taught us we must lift up our cross and follow him.

We must do as Christ did, for he was our example. He didn’t blame others, he forgave them, he didn’t fight against his situations he gave into them by giving them over to God. He didn’t want to suffer and die, he prayed for the cup to pass, but Christ knew it was beyond his control. He knew to SAVE HIS LIFE was to ACCEPT that HIS LIFE WAS NOT HIS OWN. Which he so eloquently stated to his disciples, I can do NOTHING of myself. Without the word of God I can’t do anything, but with the Word of God I can do all things!

This is good advice that Jesus is giving us. It is given to us, so that we too can have heaven on earth.

In Romans 8:8, we are taught that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that will be revealed in us.

You see, we must realize that our trials are there for us, not to hurt us, but to teach us to GIVE UP THE REIGNS. The more we kick against the “pricks” the more we will suffer.

No one literally needs to die to have life, but we must get rid of the thought that we are in control, we must stop going to that tree of good and evil, and saying if I do this I get good, and when bad things happen believing we are being punished.

Look, it ALL works together for the good of those that love the Lord. If you Love the Lord you UNDERSTAND that EVERYTHING, even the bad, is there for YOUR GOOD!

In closing, if we take Christ’s advice to heart and if we TRULY give up our LIVES (Our efforts, will, worry, doubt, fear, anger, hate, etc. etc.) and believe that God is in control, than we WILL HAVE A LIFE INDEED.

“No Peace For The Wicked”

grandcentral
“No Peace For The Wicked”

There will be no peace for the wicked.
There will be no rest for those who hate.
There will be no compassion for those who have none,
and no laughter for those who do not appreciate.

For no man is an island, we each determine each other’s fate.

Flooding, drought, famine, wildfires, massive storms becoming the norm, fish dying in every sea and every lake.

Disasters of every kind, the source of which you will always find, the wicked did orchestrate.

This is why, no matter how hard we try, as long as one of us is selfish,
there will be war at every door and every gate.

There will be terror in the land, where time passes and the gods stand, because there is always a price that has to be paid.

A price, for every heartache and strife, for every penny stolen and for every life, the wicked take.

And for those who trust in riches, their hands will callous from digging the ditches, that will eventually become their grave.

For there will be no peace for the wicked, and for the wicked there will be no escape.

Return to me, return to me, for I alone am the only one who can save.

I am hope, I am love, I am compassion, I am forgiveness, I am inspiration, I am wisdom, I am kindness, I am patience, and I am grace.

For no man is an island, we are each collectively tied to our fate.

Jacob Israel


Hello my friends,

I hope you enjoyed my latest poem. I have found it is best to express important ideas through poetry.

There is a great truth in the words that only those with ears may have heard, but I believe the spirit of the poem speaks volumes.

The day we are living in is a direct result of how we have lived.

If collectively we don’t change, and put an end to the way things have been in this corrupt world, an even greater price than we have paid so far waits us all.

This is why we need to open our eyes and no longer follow after the greedy ways of this world.

The scriptures often speak of the many hearts in the world that have grown cold. What a terrible day it is, when everyone you meet seems to miss, that life can be wonderful and exciting once again.

If we enter into God’s rest, if we cease from our labor, if we stop acting like we are God and everyone else somehow deserves less than a new day we will see.

Sadly, the day we are in seems to be darker for those in the world than the day before it.

This is part of the reason I took a short break from social media. I posted that I would be taking a short break, but I found out many people thought that I deleted or blocked them, for that I am sorry.

I want to let all of you know I would not do that to you, unless enough dust had collected on my shoe that I simply had to.

The reason I took this break is simple, it was a timing thing.

I am preparing for what is coming next professionally. My novel “The Book of Thomas James” – a reboot of my award winning “The Calling” is in the works (at Publisher). This novel is a game changer, for those that have read the original, well they haven’t seen anything yet. The timing is, as they say, the Lord’s (existing one/inspiration/creator of all).

And while I am very excited for what is to come for me personally and professionally, I am troubled for what is to come for the world, especially the United States.

The video I shared recently on Youtube (below) goes into more detail about this, it is posted below. Please do watch it in its entirety, it’s important. And then share what you have learned.

But I digress,

As you know I have been concerned about many things happening around the world. Not to mention the things that I have said will continue to plague us, like Catastrophic Flooding, war, and more, which many at first ignored is now as obvious to everyone.

And what is obvious to me, perhaps not to any of you reading this right now is, I clearly see on the Horizon, unfortunately, terrorism becoming the norm here in our un-walled cities.

I have noticed a pattern in the world. Now even the holy places, those recognized as major holy places, like the Temple Mount, Mecca, etc, are safe. They too are now a terror among men.

We have seen tragedy at almost everyone of these sites. Not to mention most of the sites, like Josephs Tomb, monuments, and many other “sacred” altars and buildings that are being systematically destroyed, by rioters and terrorists like ISIL.

As I said earlier, the days of idolatry and hate are coming to an end. This is why, I now see these terrors coming to us here in the states as well as other “un-walled” nations like us.

Mankind is going to learn that they can no longer put their faith in their “high places”, like banks, established universities, holy sites, churches, altars, temples, mosques and of course the economy.

We have seen war, natural disaster, violence, murder and more in Israel, In Mecca and in important Holy sites around the world. We have seen scandal and more as well.

However, before this day TERROR was only experienced outside our door, on a daily basis I mean. This is why I see terror coming to the United Stated and other Un-walled Nations around the world. We will see this happening at major Universities (man’s education) , Churches (man’s so called spirituality) and of course attacks on the things we all put our faith in “money” (Man’s greed) and everything that goes along with it. An attack on everything keeping us “entertained and ignorant” from movies theaters to concerts and yes even malls.

It makes sense to me. This would drive people from the very institutions that are programming them into living selfishly, greedily, and hatefully.

We may even see war.

I believe very shortly we are going to see events popping up, all around us here in the states.

Soon, there will be a feeling that no place is safe, just like the attack at the Peace Rally in Turkey recently.

Now that all being said, I do believe eventually good will come out of this, but it may be a long time coming, because man is slow to realize the error of his ways.

In one of my most recent videos I said, “when you see violence in our city streets and martial law know that the day of the Lord is near.”

I want everyone to know that although we are entering a very difficult time for our country, as well as around the world, there is hope for those who return to the Lord (Love, Peace, Truth, Spirit, Life).

I am also here to remind all of you to FEAR NOT…. we, those who have submitted ourselves to love and have placed the needs of others before our own, WE, who have died to who we thought we were in this world, may see war in the world but WE WILL HAVE PEACE WITHIN it.

We can be IN the WORLD and not be a PRODUCT OF IT.

So, only the wicked need fear. Because God is not mocked, whatever a person sows they shall also reap… FOR THIS REASON, WE MUST SOW LOVE!!!!

In any event, for those who have missed me on Facebook, please do know that I am always available here. If you haven’t already subscribed to my website (which is FREE) please, please, please SUBSCRIBE and CONTACT ME with what YOU are feeling. This way we will always be in touch and you will have access to everything that I am inspired to share where I share it.

I so do love you all, and I am so grateful for you all, I hope you appreciate my latest video and you take these words to heart.

A WARNING IGNORED

A WARNING IGNORED

WAR

JULY 18, 2015 – I wrote an essay called “A WARNING TO EVERYONE” which cost me many friends, my reputation in certain circles, and gave many envious people the opportunity to poke fun and go on tell just how very wrong I was. Yet, there is no denying that the world has changed exactly as I said it would. From flooding, to earthquakes, to migrant crisis, to martial law, to war, and economic troubles as well as possible collapse. I have never called myself a prophet, but I have said very clearly that I was inspired to share what I shared each and every time. Not to mention, I had been given the gift of having my blinders taken off so I could truly see the signs of the times.

“THE DREAM”

I had a dream the night before last that I feel inspired to share. It was a different dream than my typical ones, I felt it held great importance. I want to begin this very important essay by sharing it.

TEMPLE MOUNT

“I found myself standing in Israel, in what I believed was the Western Wall Plaza but it could have also been the Temple Mount. I just knew it was an important “holy” site in Israel. It was daytime. Thousands of people were there behind gates all around me. I was standing in the center of it all. In front of me I saw a huge Statue in the distance that reminded me of the Nebuchadnezzar’s dream Daniel interpreted.”

idol

This IDOL stood tall overlooking all of Israel. I stood in the center of this open air plaza and noticed the thousands behind me, they were anxious to see the PRESENTATION. I understood in the dream that everyone was there to watch what many in Christianity would call Witchcraft, as the presentation was called “Harry Potter 3”. (It was a dream people, think of it in terms of symbolism.) I remember thinking about the scripture that states, “the spirit of rebellion” is witchcraft”.

I was then told by someone I did not see that the Statue was called Laiash and the name meant “Lion”. Next, I realized that I did not have my wallet so I left. At that point the gates came down and everyone started running around chaotically. As I walked away I found a reader of mine who was with someone carrying a briefcase that was opened and inside it LOOKED VERY MUCH like I complex BRIGHT RED bomb. I was told by the man holding it it was a “Bong” (to get high with) disguised as a laptop that they were going to use within… he called the fake laptop the “NEW SUSSMAN” … I remember thinking in the dream that I was worried there would be a terrorist attack and I woke up.”

I knew there was more to the dream so I did some research. I found out that “Laiash” is actually found in scripture, it become DAN. I also found out that believe it or not it actually means LION, which surprised me.

I immediately drew a parallel to the LION that goes about seeking whom it may devour (the devil/carnal ego of man) as being the IDOL worshiped there.

I also looked up the NEW SUSSMAN, which also was strange as I found a woman named LILY SUSSMAN had visited Israel with her laptop a couple of years ago and it was shot up because they thought it was a bomb.

laptop

This dream troubled me, but I did not immediately tell anyone publicly about it.

It did scare me to think that there might be an attack during a Jewish Holiday or a bomb going off at or near the Western Wall or perhaps Temple Mount which of course would be devastating… so I instead am praying that since I did not witness an attack, perhaps an attack may be prevented or not happen at all, and the dream was simply there to inspire me writing to you all. Of course, I would be lying if I didn’t feel like an attack in the Western Wall Plaza was imminent.

That all being said, the dream at least inspired me to finish this essay. To bring you all up to speed and to encourage you as the world has indeed changed since I first warned of such things.

THE WARNING

In my July 18, 2015 Warning Essay, I explained how in the month of September I had felt that the world the way we knew it was about to change. I explained that like Jonah I had felt that I was meant to warn everyone. That warning was shared from my heart after much prayer and I did not take this lightly. I knew the consequences of sharing such, but I was not worried about maintaining a following, I was concerned about the state of the world and how to adequately follow the will of God.

I did not know the days or the hours that these things would happen. God did not literally speak to me. I simply woke up one night after a troubling dream and knew what I had to do. I believed that if I did this than like the people of Ninevah we would not see such terrible things visit us around the world. However, I did know that UNLESS people everywhere began to love and chose positive Godly change in their lives that these things would come to pass because THIS CHANGE was happening one way or the other.

HERE IS A DIRECT QUOTE from that essay “A Warning For All” July 18, 2015.

And so, I want to let you all know that things are going to seem to get much, much worse in the world.
That’s right I am talking like end of days worse… Earthquakes, massive flooding, famine, wild fired, war, disease, and more.
Fun, right? … Not at all. And neither is this essay an ear tickling one.
THE GOOD NEWS is, I know this leads to something truly beautiful

Before I had written this essay we hadn’t yet scene such devastating things. Sure we had seen them in the past, but not in the amount, and progression, that we have seen the last couple of months and coming into the month of September through today.

JULY 19, 2015 – Shortly after writing this essay I followed it up with video that I shared from my heart. You can tell by my expression that I was not truly comfortable talking about such things. However, I knew I had to bring people’s attention to the things I believed would soon happen in the world.

Following the release of this essay and video I began to share (as promised in the July essay “A Warning to Everyone”) more videos and feelings on other events that would follow, and boy did they… From Flooding, Earthquake, Martial law, Economic Collapse, Migrants, War and more.

JULY 30TH, 2015 – I was invited to share about my “Warning” essay on a Pod Cast called “The Wondering Pilgrims”. At that point I was already familiar which much of the conspiracy theories surrounding the month of September. Up until sharing that essay, I knew nothing about any of it. In fact, I was very focused on things that pertained to the inward man, as you all are aware.

Up until July 18th, 2015 I was not very focused on the END OF DAYS as many call them. In any event, I shared many insights on their program, but I focused the people’s attention to the change I knew was coming. I even used the example of a Nightmare having to get worse to wake the dreamer up. BECAUSE PEOPLE WERE SLEEPING EVERYWHERE IT SEEMED.

Below is the link for this program, around 53 minutes in I began speaking about this specifically.

Shortly after this appearance I began to feel differently in my day to day life. I began to walk around with a feeling of expectation. I did not truly know what to expect but I knew change was coming one way or another. I just never thought three short months later we might be returning to the COLD WAR.

Many people from everywhere were privately and publicly trying to persuade me of how wrong I was, and how I was spreading gloom and doom. These people did not truly care about me, nor did they really have a clue as to what I was saying they simply loved the opportunity to attack my insights.
You see, I was kindling a fire in the hearts of people about what was happening in the world and the vipers came out to bite my hand because of it. They not only told me I was wrong, but tried to convince others that I was something of a heretic.

Like Paul, I simply shook it off. A sign that follows believers is they can be bit by any poisonous snake and not be hurt by it, they can drink any deadly thing (as many have tried to poison others against me) and it will not hurt.

The truth is, it did hurt my personally and professionally but it did not stop me from sharing what the Lord (existing one) inspired me to share.

Along the way, I had written an essay about Jonah. I explained that JONAH was the sign for the people. THE SIGN WAS JONAH himself. I knew in my heart, that I TOO WAS A SIGN FOR THE PEOPLE.

In this essay, “No Sign But Jonah” I shared about how Jonah did not want to warn Nineveh, because he knew of God’s Love and that God wanted good and not evil for his people… and when Nineveh was spared Jonah was upset because HE WARNED THEM OF ALL THE BAD THINGS TO COME and THEY NEVER CAME… That made the prophet look foolish. This was a great lesson for me.

I learned also that God took pity on Nineveh not just because they repented but because they were ignorant. They didn’t know right from wrong and that is why they were acting so rebelliously. And so I held out hope that if only I shared that LOVE would be inspired in the hearts of people everywhere and WORLD WAR 3 would be avoided. Yes, that’s right I did a video at the beginning August titled WAR IS COMING. But I am getting ahead of myself.

I, of course, do not want to see war, flood, earthquake, heartbreak, I want to see a world united, I want to see freedom, joy, love, and peace. At the time, North Korea and South Korea were about to come to blows, and when they came to an agreement I felt like reconciliation was possible for us all. Even though, back then World War 3 was unimaginable.

So let me tell you how this all played out.

FLOODING

August 5, 2015 – I shared a video entitled, “THE FLOODGATES ARE OPENED” — as I was doing this video I found it odd that I began talking about the Flooding the whole of the world was about to see. I explained that it was going to happened naturally and then spiritually. I shared this video on facebook alone… you can watch it here.

I did not know at the time of the devastating Flooding we would begin to see ALL AROUND THE WORLD within 24 hours of me posting such. Major storms like Typhoon Soudelor, Etau and many many more… I began each day searching out floods around the world and I began sharing links to flooding everywhere… The comments contained flooding from all over, here are a few from the list of major floods that began after my video.

There are many more that took place around the world, many remember the floods that Colorado experienced and the tragedy in Utah, but this was just the beginning of the labor pangs I believed we would begin to see in the as we approached the month of September.

EARTHQUAKES

AUGUST 5, 2015 I began speaking of the shaking that would be felt around the world. I was still in a bit of shock as to how accurate the flood video was and to do a video and to now talk about earthquakes so soon, just seemed overwhelming to me. I did not know at the time if my Earthquake video, entitled “Will The Earthquake” that we would actually see more earthquakes then before, and larger earthquakes like the one in Chile we all experienced recently. Below is the video.

It was at this point that I began to understand my purpose in sharing about these events. I realized I needed to draw people’s attention to Climate Change, and the affects of corrupt governing and the rule of greed.

There would be a shake up, this much I knew. I knew spiritually soon the foundation of what everyone believed was about to be broken up, and before that happened I also believed we would see it take place in the world. I had hoped that after sharing this video people would become concerned with the state of the world and perhaps try to find out what they could do to help bring attention to others as I had done, so together we could turn from our corrupt ways and change this world for good, with love. Because honestly, what could someone like me do on my own?

ALL I CAN DO IS FOCUS ON LOVING MORE, FORGIVING MORE, AND LIVING FOR MORE. If we all did this, the world would change peacefully.

Well, some did criticize me, one of which was a dear friend of mine in California. Ironically, my friend in California that made me feel bad for what I had been sharing, actually experienced a Earthquake the very next day, in his own town. I had woken up in the middle of the night and sent him an email to assure him I wasn’t crazy but had faith there was a reason for what I was sharing.

September 5th, 3:12am
Good talking with you (?????). Love you my friend and I promise I am not crazy. My best to your lady. But I think you know that by now. Just woke up thinking about you. Peace J

Ironically, around that time an Earthquake struck Marina Del Ray, which is where that friend lives… it was a strange coincidence, but thankfully not one that brought damage to his home.

http://mynewsla.com/crime/2015/09/05/no-damage-after-2-7-magnitude-quake-shakes-marina-del-rey/

That all being said, once the Earthquake in Chile hit, which once again could have been much worse thank God, some people began to take some of the things I was sharing seriously. Others went so far as to say I was ignorantly creating it by sharing what I was sharing. This did not dissuade me, I went on to speak about the wild fires, the drought, the migrants crisis, the economy and of course war, all of which I saw coming and now we all have seen revealed this month of September.

“MARTIAL LAW”

AUGUST 12, 2015 – I began talking about CONTROL, Martial Law… in the video I explained that when order seems to be lost, when people can take no more, than we would see those in power taking action in the form of CONTROL. I was surprised at how quickly we began to see Martial Law in other countries, police states, and more because of extreme weather, economic issues, and the migrant crisis… even last week the word “Martial Law” was set in motion in Congress to force the hand of some who are in disagreement over passing legislation.

Below is the video, and once again, after sharing the video I began sharing links to help people to understand how serious this is. The governments of the world are doing everything they can to maintain CONTROL right now, and as I shared in the video, it will still get worse if things do’t change peacefully within us all.

WAR

AUGUST 20, 2015For days I had worried we might soon see a war unlike I have known in my lifetime. I felt like World War 3 was on the Horizon. Of course, once I share that many people told me such a thing was not possible… AND YET today both President Obama and President Putin are saying we are on the verge of such. Below is that video.

SEPTEMBER 1, 2015 I had about had it with the way some so-called spiritual teachers, religious leaders/pastors/evangelists/gurus/etc were treating me. I was surprised that the media was not reporting on some of the terrible things happening around the world, I was angry at many of peers for criticizing me for what I was sharing and saying that THE THINGS I WAS SHARING WOULD NOT HAPPEN… I was also tired of watching many religious and spiritual teachers talking about how they were GOD and there was no GOD but them. And so I shared this video below called “THEY SAY PEACE THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION”.

A COMMON THEME in each of these videos is that good will come out of all of it… ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

SEPTEMBER 9, 2015 I shared a video on Facebook about how I had felt that the Economy was indeed going to take another major stumble. I had briefly touched on this in July but really felt that turbulent times were immediately ahead. I saw all of the things that I had been sharing up until that point as connected. As if God was trying to show us that everything carnal man creates will fail. Ironically, since then we have had some pretty disturbing news with the economy. Bio-tech price gauging, fraud, major automotive companies and other industry announcing major lay offs. We have heard about how China’s economy is unstable and losing ground fast. Not to mention the migrant crisis and the failed economies of countries we all depend on. I am not an economist but I do know many economists are now saying the exact same thing. People like Ron Paul and Presidential hopeful Ben Carson acknowledge martial law is also on the horizon because of how dire the consequences are for us all today.

I have shared many more poems, posts, and the like, on Facebook and to many who email me on a daily basis. My message has never changed. It is one of love and submission to the God of us all.

THE END IS THE BEGINNING

SEPTEMBER 20, 2015 I was inspired to do a very different video. I started with the creation story and the second part of the video I used only footage from this year. I wanted to somehow convey to those who are not aware of the crisis we face today worldwide just has important it is to become actively involved in peaceful change… THAT STARTS WITH YOU… Scripture teaches us, Judgment begins at the house of the lord… and that judgment is upon us all… and it is a beautiful thing when PEACE is the result.

I want to close this entry with the video I created today. And with my prayer that perhaps the Lord will inspire love everywhere and that people everywhere will lay down their weapons and open their arms in love so that together we will finally know peace.

SEPTEMBER 28, 2015

In July when I warned everyone of what was to come, the world was a very different place. Within two short months we have seen such devastation around the world that even for me it is hard to believe. However, I am hopeful and so should you be. It is the FEAST OF TABERNACLES after all. And God promised all of us, that he would wipe every tear from our eye. And God does not break a promise like carnal man. So I want you all to also be hopeful, hold your families tighter, forgive those who have done you wrong, and get ready… because the world may not be coming to an end… But the way things are in the world and have been is at it’s end.

Please do share this essay and any essay or video you find on here with others. If you haven’t already SUBSCRIBE it’s free. Together we can change, and together we can make sure we will never again no war or hate or lack in this world or any other. I love you all, Jacob

Follow The Signs

signs
FOLLOW THE SIGNS!

I wanted to kick off the new and improved look of my website, which I hope makes it easier to read and navigate, with an essay I wrote many, many years ago. This is one only a few close to me have seen. It is indeed an eye opener and a reminder that not everyone who says, “Lord, Lord” is for the truth of the Kingdom.

First, I want to personally thank all of you for your great support and encouragement. It is so very needed today, we must all lift each other up especially when facing difficult times. And the times for many have been difficult, which is why I am always available for your emails, comments, and even phone calls. For those who want to email me personally, who are not already connected to me on facebook, please do send it to Thomascalls@aol.com. I so look forward to hearing all you have to say and being there for you in your time of need. Remember, of course, I am only one man and it may take time for me to respond, but I will.

In any event, I have been sharing lately about the Signs of The Times. I have taken some criticism about this but this is nothing new to me and I know that criticism will come, but the truth lasts forever and cannot be moved. Anyone who takes the time to investigate all that I share will see that it is more important now, than ever before, to have faith, to love, to forgive, and to fear not. – I know this is easier said than done, but those who practice make perfect and perfect is a place we all are already seated in to begin with.

In church I was told miraculous stories about Jesus and his disciples. I was also told that one day, I too would be able to accomplish such feats. Many of you reading this today most likely, at some point in your life, believed that one day, like Jesus, you could literally walk on water. Like me, as a child, perhaps you have even dared to walk across the pool at the local YMCA only to find that you can’t do these things regardless of how hard you tried to believe you could.

We are even taught that these stories, these wonderful miraculous stories about how the enlightened could walk on water, heal the sick, speak foreign tongues, drink any poisonous thing and not be affected, and more, are signs of sorts.

It seemed to me when I was younger that many who call themselves Pastor, Bishop, etc, wanted to prove they had this “POWER”. And yes, every church I went too, supposedly had someone who “knew someone” who was healed, or experienced such power, like sight being given to the blind… and that is a beautiful thing. But the question I always had was, do these men and women who make such grand claims have the powers they claim?

Do they have the SIGNS that FOLLOW?

We have for too long been the victim of charlatans like the some big stars on Faith Based TV, who have made an extravagant living supposedly healing the sick and performing these “signs”. Of course, they lack actual tangible proof. And when proof is sought after those that prove it is a con, a sham, a business for liars, as many exposes have shown, these investigators are called instruments of Satan and they are condemned.

And sadly, many who have put their faith in these men and women continue to follow blindly. Yet, many of these men and women, according to me are trying to the enter the kingdom another way.

John 10:1-2
1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.

And I am one, however, who HAS entered in… 3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out….

So, I am here to say, the TRUE MIRACLE isn’t a literal healing or miraculous spectacle, it is actually hiding away within the heart of man. And as I have said time, and time again, is that the TRUTH of these passages of scripture that literally describe such feats, is hidden away within the text.

The things of the Kingdom are a mystery. This is a puzzle people and we are given the noble task of putting all the pieces back together again.

It is the GLORY OF GOD to CONCEAL A THING and the HONOR of KINGS to SEARCH OUT A MATTER!

When the prophet was told to seal up the book. It would take a KEY to open it once again.

Jesus spoke about giving us the KEYS TO THE KINGDOM… KEYS UNLOCK DOORS… don’t they?

Keys are also used to interpret and reveal the mysteries hidden in scripture. Keys are used to solve problems and after decades of study and experience I am now going to share a KEY with you that will forever change the way you see things in scripture. For some this may not be new, but for those new to this site, this will change your life.

Matthew 16:19
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.

So did Jesus give us the KEYS to supernatural powers… Can we really bind in earth what is bound in heaven? Well, to a certain extent we can. For example, whatever a man believes he receives. If you believe your life is miserable it will become miserable and vice versa. Now, that my friend is one KEY to living a life of wonder indeed. But how many truly believe that their thoughts and prayers and ideas can influence the world around them? I for one do. But that is another essay for another time. Not to mention, something I have written and spoken about completely over the years. Use the search bar for more.

But the question remains, is NATURAL man able to do what the scripture state Jesus did? Are we endued with the ability to phase through walls, raise people from the dead, and more? Or is there more for us to understand?

Years ago, I would say, most likely… not. Because as you will find with this essay, the more important lesson is to understand the allegorical meaning of these scriptures. However, I will add… I do not believe anything is impossible. And scripture literally agrees with me.

“With Faith ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!” “With God nothing shall be impossible for you”

So let’s take a look at these “signs that follow” those enlightened to the truth and find out what the deeper meaning is.

I challenge you from here on out to approach the scriptures as if solving a puzzle… Look for the hidden treasure within the “field of each verse”.

Let us see with new eyes the meaning of such accounts and learn how we eventually can do the same.

MARK 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Sadly, many today take these words as literally true. Some go so far to “prove their faith” that they hold poisonous snakes and actually drink small amounts of arsenic, to show the world how GODLY and SUPERNATURAL they are. This in my opinion is not the brightest thing to do. That being said, we are not living in the brightest of times. There is more darkness in the land today than many are aware of. And those in that darkness (ignorance) hate the light (enlightenment of truth) but as far as the above scripture goes, the misinterpretation can end here.

These essays I write are meant to open the windows of heaven that many religious leaders, and years of indoctrination from family members and friends have closed shut.

Today, we look at Mark 16 in a new light.

Now, while there are a host of false claims about the “signs that follow believers” out there, today I will deal very specifically with those snake handling, poison drinking, tongue speaking believers we read about in scripture.

So, let’s begin:

MARK 16: 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

I’d like to simply address this passage in Mark by pointing out that what we are seeing here is what I describe as “word pictures”. 

The author is painting a picture for us. It would be a mistake to take this literally. If one takes this literally, one might find themselves dancing with rattlers, getting bit, and dying because they were trying to prove an egotistical point built upon ignorance.

We must instead seek wisdom…

Proverbs 4:7
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.

WISDOM is the TREE OF LIFE… We eat from this TREE we are set free indeed!

Proverbs 3:18
She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

Happy also are those with a wholesome tongue (Those who speak out of wisdom). By our words we are judged. Meaning, if you judge your life to be miserable… it will be!

We do indeed have power to shape and reshape our lives, and the world, this you will find… however, it has nothing to do with being able to drink real poison and live… (that would be silly and unwise)

I want you to understand that when you know the TRUTH (about who you, and who others are) it sets you free from the lies you have believed. These lies hurt you, not just physically as is the case for those who believed they could drink arsenic and live, but emotionally as well.

When you have the wrong understanding it is the death (ignorance) of TRUTH, and ultimately who you really are.

Ignorance is not bliss… it is the beginning of every evil thought and deed.

Ever since there was a “Holy book” mankind has grabbed hold of it and used it as a sword. The scriptures warn of this, how many would forsake the truth for the power the LIE offered…. “If you bow down and serve the Carnal Ego of man, you can do whatever you want and step on anyone in the process”… The carnal ego of man (the devil) will also convince you that you can KILL to get what you want, while using the Bible as justification. As evidenced by the hundreds of thousands of years people have been murdered in God’s name, and worse.

Being ignorant of what scripture means is the reason wars have been fought in the name of God, people have been tortured in the name of God, crosses have been burned in the name of God, and people are condemned on a regular basis in the name of God…. And while this one article may not open the world’s eyes and end all of that, perhaps it can open the eyes of some young man in the South who is about to take hold of a rattler at his father’s service.

Jesus said, the Kingdom of God is a Mystery… So when we read about miraculous and supernatural events we must use the KEYS given to us, to see what these passages really mean. Considering, to those without understanding, Jesus only spoke in parable.

Matthew 13:34
All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them

So I will try to unlock the meaning of this passage in Mark by using these very same “keys of the kingdom”.

Quick recap: What does a key do? … A KEY opens doors, treasures, gates, and more, as well as locks them. In geography to understand a map once must use the “Key”. For Math a Key is used to solve any and every problem. The same is true for scripture. The KEYS of the Kingdom are tools given to us within the body of scripture, and within our heart(spirit/mind), to interpret and understand what is being shared.

So, why all the mystery, shrouded messages, and allegory, you say?

Well, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a TREASURE hidden in a field (US) and in this life we are given this great adventure to rediscover the very meaning of life, and rediscover who we really are in it. The TRUTH, when found, sets us free from the ignorance of who we think we are, and what we have believed… Mind you, the TRUTH sets us free from all ERROR.

From the moment you were born, the FIRST YOU (Adam) was formed. You were given a name, told what is acceptable and what is not, how to act, what to eat, when to go to bed, to get up, what to wear, what to learn and how to learn it… the list goes on and on. That’s the TREE OF THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL that we are made subject to. NOT WILLINGLY MIND YOU…

Romans 8:20
For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

We were force-fed lie after lie, “good boys do this”, “bad girls wear their hair like that”, Santa Claus, Easter Bunny, God in the literal sky, hell, and a host of other nonsense man created to cover their own shame and ignorance. (Fig leaves). By now, you must know this FIRST PERSON you have been formed into is NOT THE SPIRIT you truly are…. Who you think you are is an image, nothing more… and it merely appears to be alive. The LIFE is the spirit within you!

Now, in the ignorance of the FIRST MAN – FIRST YOU – ALL DIE. Meaning, the instant we believe we are mere moral human beings we become only that and we physically die… Spiritually, this is significant because it means WITHIN we DIE as well. “To be carnally minded is death”

1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ (power and wisdom of God) shall all be made alive.

If you have a mountain of worries and fears, you can thank the fear that has been passed down from generation to generation for that.

YOU have been POISONED since birth with lies, insecurities, and bias from your parents, friends, and the world at large.

This is why Jesus said, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN! Because the FIRST YOU is an ignorant shame filled, fearful, horns-waggled wretch… BUT THAT IS NOT WHO YOU ARE! YOU ARE SO MUCH MORE! YOU ARE GOD’S CHILD!

And when you see this, you will understand that you don’t need to prove anything by doing the impossible. You don’t need to prove the existence of God by pretending people are being healed, you just KNOW GOD IN TRUTH AND SPIRIT and you LOVE… THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS!

The TRUTH of who we are has been HIDDEN WITHIN US. And now is the day when we are being pulled out of such foolishness to REVEAL the TRUTH TO ALL!

After all, it is the GLORY OF GOD to conceal a thing… And CHRIST (power and wisdom of God) does indeed COME (is revealed) in the GLORY OF GOD (the concealed thing) … ahhh but that is a different topic for a different day…

So, let’s us begin to use  the Keys found in scripture to uncover the meaning of …

MARK 16: 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Let’s take it in parts. Let’s start by finding out, once and for all, what DEVILS are. Oooooowww a spoooooky subject, especially since we are just about to celebrate Halloween, which of course, some would go so far to condemn people for celebrating.

Back to the DEVIL… Interesting to note, DEVIL spelled backwards is LIVED… A great side note: The DEVIL is the accuser of the brethren… So is Moses (anyone see that?) – but think about it, do you accuse yourself of the things you do in the future of those things you did in the past.

LIVED=DEVIL – That’s just a cool thing to ponder. Moving on….

So, what are these DEVILS, that Jesus and company love to cast out? Are they some spooky demons flying around possessing people, making them vomit pea soup and make their heads spin all the way around? … Are devils spirit beings that possess people to worship Satan by convincing people to dress up as a favorite super hero for Halloween? 🙂 Well, of course not!

Demons, devils, etc, these are not literal evil beings outside of us and Jesus agrees. There are no spooky devils flying around outside of us, fighting literal battles in an invisible realm in the worlds… No one is literally being possessed by creatures outside of them, that go into them…

You see, Jesus said “Nothing that GOES INTO A MAN defiles him.”

People there is nothing OUTSIDE of us can possess us unless we allow it. And NO BEING possesses us, we are only possessed by WORDS. And from birth we have been poisoned with every one of them out here in the world. In ADAM all die… We are all programmed into worshiping fear and suffering. This is why every wicked thought is already in the heart of carnal man, whose mind is on evil all the time. You see our carnal nature is a “hot mess” and we enter sin when we are drawn away by OUR OWN LUSTS, not when we are possessed by things that simply aren’t true.

James 1:14
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

SOOOOO, it is our LUST that TEMPTS US…. Wait a minute! Hold the phone…. I thought only SATAN tempts…

1 Corinthians 7:5
Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your inconsistency.

Is it possible that SATAN the father or ALL LIES, is OUR CARNAL LUST? The very same SERPENT placed in the GARDEN (Within us) tempting us to continue to EAT of the wrong tree. (the Temporal world and all its trappings and vain traditions and beliefs)- It is interesting to note, the BRAIN STEM IS called the REPTILIAN BRAIN – and it is in fact hanging on the TREE of our NERVOUS SYSTEM (controlling our sensual sights, sounds, tastes, touch, etc) — Now, that is interesting. The REPTILIAN BRAIN (Brain stem) which is known for dealing with our LOWEST AND MOST CARNAL FUNCTIONS… isn’t science fun?

Our LUST is what draws us away from the truth, our LUST for power, acceptance, wealth, and more… this is why people will believe about anything they are told so long as they can hold unto the idea that “they are somehow more important, or smarter than another” — The ego can make you punish someone for simply seeing things differently, and convince you to turn your back and banish this person, and then pat you on the back for doing such to even your own son or daughter. Ask the Catholics, Jehovah’s witnesses, Mormons, Baptists, Muslims, etc etc

These devilish beliefs are the cause of our suffering. These devils (lies we believe) cause us to hurt ourselves and others… And so, when we read in scripture that one of the SIGNS that follow the believer is that you will have POWER OVER DEVILS… it really means you have the power to rise above your carnal ego and petty fears.

Mark 16:17
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils

When you believe the TRUTH, you will be able to share it… as I am sharing it. And when you come upon those who are possessed by lies, you can share that truth and set them free from the lies they believe, which ultimately do great harm.

These “DEVILS” that we are to have power over are not spooky creatures outside of us. They are lies, false beliefs and mindsets we have inside of us… A result of years of brainwashing and gullibility.

Today we see people how far a lie can be taken. People will kill in the name of God. People will kill themselves because they have believed the lies inside them that says “it’s better to end it all”… When Jesus came across people who did not know the truth and they, because of their ignorance stood against him, he said… “You are of your father the Devil” — meaning these people were a result of the lies the carnal ego within man declared them to be. Satan’s seed, is not “Rosemary’s Baby”, the seed of SATAN are the lies people ignorantly believe.

The below scripture describe what Devils and Demons are.

DEUT 36:17 They sacrificed unto DEVILS, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.

The people were sacrificing unto GODS THEY MADE UP, Gods they CREATED. God’s their FATHERS FEARED NOT… These devils were creations of the carnal mind. They were false beliefs, like Santa Claus, etc. New religions pop up every day. All a result of the clever carnal ego within mankind. The world is FILLED with DEVILS (False BELIEFS) because of it. And this is why those who have the good pleasure of calling themselves “Believers” are given the power to CAST OUT SUCH!

THE LIES KEEPING MANKIND IN CHAINS need to be revealed and destroyed by the truth.

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Notice, the word “Imagination” here. Anything that is MADE UP, make-believe, fairy tales, etc, any imagination that exalts itself ABOVE THE KNOWLEDGE of God needs to be cast down.

DID YOU CATCH THAT PEOPLE?

This means, the MOST IMPORTANT THING THERE IS FOR YOU TO FIND OUT IS THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD!

Anything that takes precedence in your life, over this… anything you consider more important than this… must be CAST DOWN. We need to cast out the LIES people, rid ourselves and others of false beliefs… these are the DEVILS we are giving power over.

Let me give you a good example of how the DEMONS “LIES WE BELIEVE” are cast out.

There was a time people believed the Earth was the center of the universe and that the EARTH was flat… Anyone who said differently was condemned as a heretic, and those people who believed the LIE (demon) did not want to hear different. No one wants to admit they are wrong. The ego of man, will not take that lightly.

People would rather continue on in their ignorance rather than question and seek after the truth no matter what the cost.

And yet, the DEMON of a lie (that the earth is flat and the center of the universe) is eventually cast out once the TRUTH IS is expressed and understood.

You see the TRUTH is the only thing that is eternal, the LIE is temporal (temporary). That is good news, because no matter how long the TRUTH lies buried beneath a lie it will always RISE and DESTROY the LIE with the BRIGHTNESS of its coming (revealing).

2 Thessalonians 2:8
And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

A better translation for that verse would be: When the truth is known and spoken, the words of truth shall consume the lies believed and forever destroy them.

Like proving the world is not flat by showing someone deceived satellite imagery … Once people are presented with the TRUTH, the DEVILS are cast out.

This is one of the signs that follow… Once the believers SEES the truth… the LIE which seems to be, but truly is not… is DESTROYED.

Revelation 17:11
And the beast that was, and IS NOT

Christ, who is TRUTH, casts out Demons left and right. This is what the stories of Jesus casting out demons really means.

Jesus said, I am the way, the TRUTH, and the LIFE… A devil is a LIE… Notice, how Jesus puts those possessed back into their RIGHT MIND (which actually means “RIGHTEOUSNESS”).

Mark 5:15
And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind

Many LIES have been cast out of me as well over the years. (SYMBOLICALLY) I too cut myself with stones (I abused myself with the Laws AND lies of Men), and I was in chains (Fear) dwelling in Tombs (my carnal mind) … But these LIES are no longer welcome in me, the TRUTH freed me of the lies, and now only the SWINE (carnal people) have a place for these false beliefs.

So YES, we have power over Demons and we can CAST THEM OUT! But DEMONS are simply the FALSE BELIEFS people have, and it is the SPOKEN TRUTH we have been given (within us) that FREES THEM!

Matthew 7:5
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Before we can cast out the DEMON (LIE) SPIRITS (THOUGHTS) of others, first we must be rid of our own. And believe me, it is easy to find fault in others, as opposed to really searching one’s own heart. The carnal EGO (devil) of man, doesn’t want that. And when you find a false belief, and you know that you know that it isn’t true… PLUCK IT OUT! If anything you believe OFFENDS YOU… If anything you do, brings you suffering or shame, rid yourself of it.

Matthew 18:9
And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire.

Now, this above passage is not talking about cutting out your EYE, but your “perception” of a thing. If your perception of God is offensive and condemning to you, “GET RID OF IT”, otherwise you will continue to suffer from the LIES you believe. It’s better to get rid of your false beliefs rather than to suffer because of them.

Galatians 4:30
Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.

CAST OUT THE LIES THAT KEEP YOU BOUND! And use the TRUTH AND LOVE to rid yourselves of these DEMONS.

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

When we cast out the LIES in these people, we return them to their RIGHT MIND. And in so doing, we HEAL them. Remember God does not care about the OUTWARD MAN, but the INWARD MAN — THE CHRIST IN YOU.

2 Corinthians 4:16
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

Now let us look at another part of this scripture… the part that states, that we can take up serpents and not be hurt… What is this sign that follows those that believe?

MARK 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Does God give us the power to pick up a rattler, be bit and shake it off without the need of anti-venom? Or is the serpents a symbol of something else? The answer is not hard to find.

Another key I offer to you is using a bible search engine… Look up certain words, and read everything you can about what those words are. For example, when you see the word “serpent”, look for other passages and SEE if the word “serpent” might actually be another “word picture” that describes something else completely.

FOR EXAMPLE: Here it is easy to find the word SERPENT used to describe religious people.

Matthew 23:33
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

How many times did Jesus call the Religious leaders serpents? MANY.

When Paul was adding sticks to the fire and a serpent bit him and he shook it off and was not harmed, do you really think Paul was attacked by a literal poisonous snake? Or could it be that he was sharing the truth and as he did so, some religious people came along and sank their teeth into him? Could it be instead of getting upset, Paul simply SHOOK it off?


Acts 28
2 And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
3 And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
4 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
5 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.

Look at that again… the PEOPLE were angry and attacked Paul because they “kindled a fire” – THAT FIRE being the TRUTH – and Paul started this FIRE because of the PRESENT RAIN/TEACHING and because it was COLD (NO LOVE IN IT) — This is a story that means to show us a greater truth.

The signs that follow a believer is a FIRE will be started in their present teaching, the truth will be shared, and it will anger some, and the believers may be attacked, defamed, discredited and worse from these “barbarians”, however when BIT this venom has no effect… WE CAN SHAKE THE ATTACKS OF OTHERS AWAY when we BELIEVE!

SHAKE IT OFF! We have power over the lies of Religious men and women.

Is not more plausible that when you believe and know THE TRUTH (Christ) the SIGN THAT FOLLOWS is that you can meet with, debate with, speak with, be condemned by, love, and forgive those who believe lies and preach lies.

We know scripture is clear, the SERPENT was more subtile than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. The serpent is and was a liar. For many years, SERPENT preacher/priests/spiritual guru’s/ and more/ have come and gone in my life. They sunk their fangs deep into me, told me that I was possessed, in error, lost, condemned, I have been called many things… But I always sat back and SORT of knew… they knew NOT what they do. I shook it off.

Doesn’t it make more sense that when we know the TRUTH if we meet a SERPENT preaching lies (venom/demon) we can endure their false teachings and slander and not even feel be hurt by it all… – OR do you believe that this scripture is stating to prove we believe we must get bit my literal poison snakes and not die?

LOOK, we can hear all the lies from these snakes, we can visit with those who believe their lies, we can have the lies shouted into our ears and watch them on TV and yet, the poison that comes out of these serpents mouths, the LIES of the Religious and Worldly can not hurt us anymore. Because we KNOW THE TRUTH.

Which brings us drinking any DEADLY THING.

First of all… let’s look again what PRODUCES DEATH, before we get into this.

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is death

That’s right, once again, DEATH = IGNORANCE = BELIEVING LIES

And again… “the wages of SIN is death” — And from other essays I have written by now you should know that SIN simply means to miss the mark, or to miss the truth… proverbs calls the thought of foolishness SIN…

Once again, DEATH is the result of IGNORANCE — LIFE IS WISDOM AND BEING ENLIGHTENED TO THE TRUTH

SO, if the serpent is the LIAR, than the poison must be the LIE! And once again, we find this in many places in scripture.

Romans 3: 11
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used DECEIT; the POISON OF ASPS is under their lips:

You see, DECEIT = LIES = POISON to the SPIRIT, WHICH produces DEATH (ignorance, carnal thinking). Notice how their THROAT (where our words become vibration) is called an open tomb… meaning THE LIES THEY SPEAK invite people to experience the DEATH (ignorance) they exist in. This is why Jesus said of the deceived Pharisees, “you scour the earth to make one proselyte and make them twice more the son of hell you are yourself.”

For those who DON’T know the TRUTH, and only know LIES we find “poison” under their lips. We find poison on their tongues. Not LITERAL poison mind you… LIES!

PSALMS 58:
3The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, SPEAKING LIES. 4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent:

It’s all there in two verses, the WICKED (IGNORANT) speak LIES, and these LIES ARE POISON, and it is like that of a SERPENT.

It should be very clear that another SIGN that follows believers is that the Lies of Man and this world cannot hurt them.

The Devils (False Beliefs) the Serpents (Those who spread lies) and the Poison (The lies themselves) cannot hurt those who believe… Nor can those who are enlightened to the truth speak these lies, or believe them anymore… IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!

BELIEVERS have been given a NEW MIND, and it is the TESTIMONY OF CHRIST. And when you are given the TRUTH will be given a NEW TONGUE! A Cloven (separated) Tongue of Fire… Your WORDS (sword) will be separated from the lies of the world and they will be like a fire burning down the lies inside of all mankind.

These are the NEW TONGUES we are given. Not gibberish, God is not the author of Confusion.

MARK 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall SPEAK WITH NEW TONGUES; 18They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

These New tongues are actually our NATIVE language. THE TRUTH can only be heard by those who KNOW this NATIVE LANGUAGE OF TRUTH. Which, basically means… WE ALL KNOW THE TRUTH FOR WE COME FROM IT, and when the time is right we will RECOGNIZE it AS TRUTH! To some of you reading this essay, the words I write make such sense. They are great confirmation. To others, it sounds like a foreign tongue.

To others, we, like the apostles before us, might even seem like drunk fools. Many people won’t be able to understand the words of the Kingdom, which is why it is so important for us to INTERPRET the TRUTH carefully and without condemnation, with patience and in all meekness.

Not everyone will agree with this paper I have written, but that’s okay, one day EVERYONE WILL KNOW THE TRUTH AND IT SHALL SET US ALL FREE FROM THE LIES OF THE WORLD!

This is why when Religious people attack me, I shake it off, it doesn’t hurt me. When I am told I am wrong and that I must believe what others say, I drink that poison in and it doesn’t hurt me because I know the truth and it has set me free. And when I see people who are spiritually sick and hurting, I can tell them, it’s going to be okay, and that Truth spoken becomes the very OIL (wisdom) that can heal them.

Our words do not return void… Whatever we put out there returns to us, and accomplishes what we sent it out to for to begin with.

So don’t throw that Holy Water on someone who you think is possessed, they are merely confused and ignorant of the truth. Love them, comfort, and lead them into TRUTH and watch those LIES (demons) disappear. Put down that Rattler Bob, John, and Ruth, be like the STICKS;that are bundled together and hear the truth just don’t bite the messenger like that “viper” did when;the preaching got to hot to handle. And stay;away from any and all POISON that causes you to fear.

There is torment in fear and God has not given us the spirit of it. So that means… FEAR IS A LIE and you, the believer, are meant to CAST IT OUT! Because these are the signs that follow!
