IN THE NOW with JIM SWILLEY – Ep 1 & Ep 2

I am so very excited to share this with all of you. Recently, I was invited to be apart of the groundbreaking web-series “In The Now with Jim Swilley” and what came out of my appearance on about 12 of the 14 programs was nothing short of remarkable.

Now more than ever before the things myself and others share, which years ago was condemned, I now find being embraced as truth and expressed openly and freely. This year alone I have seen an explosion of growth. More people than ever before reaching out to me about the things that have been quickened within them.

This is incredibly exciting to me, as I know it must be for you. Because if you have found this site, and have gotten to know me personally, and what I share intimately, then you know the time is now indeed for us to be set free.

My sole purpose here is to not just to inspire you to dig deeper, to live for more, to love unconditionally, and to create as big as you dare to dream, but I am also here to be confirmation for many of you. Many of you, have felt so alone and didn’t know where to turn. Many of you have prayed to find others who saw what you saw, felt the way you felt, and who had known what you were coming to know yourself, and that is also why I am here. I am proof that you are not crazy, but that you are waking up to who YOU REALLY ARE WITHIN and what you are truly capable of.

Awakening, of course is a process like anything else. It starts in darkness but it ends with rest and so this website is here to help you with that. There are hundreds of essays, videos, poems, etc on various topics that will lead you into things you have desired to know. This is why I hope you subscribe, download the Jacob Israel APP, and share this free resource with the world.

With that all being said, the “In The Now with Jim Swilley” web series is a great place to start.

Below I have shared Episode one and Episode two, appropriately titled “I Can See Clearly Now”. Please do enjoy them, share them, and if hungry for more I do encourage you to watch my first ever speaking engagement on Metron, also found here under the “More Essay” section. (click on drop down menu). As you know I said this would be the year I began to speak publicly and I am so very proud of the work being done and of those who followed inspirations cue to allow me to do such. Please do enjoy and thank you all so very much for your encouragement and support. Without you I would not be who I was born to be. Now go and have the best week ever, I love you all dearly, Jacob

Jesus, The Anti-Christ, And Fruit

Jesus, The Anti-Christ, And Fruit

Recently, on other social networking sites, like facebook, youtube, etc, I have been sharing powerful mini-versions of essays I have written in the past on topics that are very timely. I thought that I should share three of these with all of you, because within them you very well may find the truth of who you really are. If you have read them already, please do read on here as I have added much to them and wonderful things were revealed in the process.

If you are new to my website, or have been here before, you know that my work is dedicated to revealing the SPIRIT of the scriptures. Because it is given to us to know the “mysteries of the Kingdom of God” and unto those “without recollection of the truth” ALL THINGS ARE DONE IN PARABLE! So, my work and my passion is sharing the hidden meaning of these mysteries written long ago.

It is the SPIRIT of these stories that gives us life, just as it is the SPIRIT within us all that IS OUR LIFE, which IS also what I dare to share with all of you as often as I can.

If you don’t know this already, I have well over one hundred critical essays I have written over the years on various topics that are available here for all of you, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and at no cost to you ever.

I put in countless hours, and pay for these sites, as well as their maintenance, because I know these WORDS WILL NOT RETURN VOID! They will accomplish what I sent them out into this world to do…

TO SET AT LIBERTY THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING IN THE HELL THAT HAS BECOME OF THEIR LIFE!

My friends, it is the TRUTH that sets a person free… the TRUTH! The problem is, each and every one of us has been delivered a well dressed lie instead.

The naked truth is far more valuable than a well dressed lie, however, the world has taught us all entertainment is far greater than content, drama is more exciting than peace, and the latest religious/fashion craze is always better than what you came into the world with (WHO YOU ARE) and became ashamed of.

So in my effort to continue to share with all of you, I have but one favor to ask. PLEASE SHARE MY SITE WITH OTHERS. Encourage people to come here and explore some of the things found here. It is my belief and hope that this year we will reach more people than ever before. CHANGE IS HERE! THE DAY WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR HAS ARRIVED!

There is no need to WAIT any longer… Don’t make Martha’s mistake.

John 11
24 Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.
25 Jesus SAID unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth IN me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

BY THE END OF THIS ESSAY you may just SEE that you have been living a life of death, and you, like Lazarus, will rise from your grave of ignorance and LIVE! Or, you will be like Jesus telling others to stop putting their faith in the future AND their worries in the past. YOUR WORDS, like Jesus’ words they may just believe. And if they BELIEVE IN YOU, if they BELIEVE the words WITHIN YOU, as they did with Jesus, then THEY TOO WILL RISE AND TRULY LIVE THEIR LIFE!

Together we can truly live our lives and change this world. It is the TRUTH that sets us free, so freely we must share it. So please do share and subscribe if you haven’t already… In the mean time, please do enjoy these three short teachings.

TEACHING 1:
BY THEIR FRUITS

When it comes to knowing a person’s heart, scripture states that we are to judge others by their fruit. Fruit is known for the seed it produces. The fruit of something is it’s seed and it’s seed, or offspring, will always produce THE FRUIT it came from.

For example, an apple seed gives birth to an apple, an orange to an orange, the seed of a dog becomes a dog, the seed of a human will become human… and the seed of God is God. The same was in the beginning with everything, if you have “ears to hear that”.

Whatever is within us we bring forth and cast out into the world. This is our seed, and when our seed, whether it be words or deeds is cast into the world it will produce what it was sent into the world to do.

If you speak words of hate or express hate, hate will be felt. If you speak words of love or express love, love will be felt. Both love and hate are seeds, and both of these seeds produce fruit, whether it is anger and loathing or peace and joy.

This is why we so often are taught that we will be judged for every word and thought. That we will reap what we sow. If we sow righteousness we will be rewarded with that fruit… If we sow hate, we will know the same.

Isaiah 3:
10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.
11 Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.

FRUIT is what we produce, it is what we MANIFEST and REPLICATE into the world.

There of course is physical seed like that of plants, and animals, and then there is the metaphorical meaning of the word FRUIT… which deals with how someone thinks and behaves.

Matthew 7
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

By their FRUITS they shall be known. So the question I want you to ask yourself is what type of fruit are you bringing to the table?

You want to know how to test the spirits? Scripture says we must test the spirits to see if they be of God or not. It goes on to state that anyone who does not state that CHRIST IS COME/REVEALED IN THE FLESH is ANTI-CHRIST, which I will explain about later in the third teaching here.

However, let us first understand what SPIRIT is.

Proverbs 1:23
behold, I will pour out my SPIRIT unto you, I will make known my WORDS unto you.

Let me explain what a spirit is, it is a spoken word which originates from within you, called thought. Jesus said, “my words are SPIRIT”, love is spirit, compassion is spirit, encouragement is spirit, patience is spirit, and tolerance and acceptance are spirit. Some thoughtS are of God and there are other spirits like greed, hate, judgment, pride, lust that are spirits of a different kind.

So, which fruit do you bring to the table?

The most Holy Spirit or thought is said by every holy book to be LOVE.

These very same books define love.

The bible states that love is patient, kind, gentle, meek, long-suffering, it does not boast, it is not proud, it does not condemn, it does not strive, and love most certainly does not cast out… Love never fails.

So if you are impatient, intolerant, self-centered, judgmental, condemning, if you are some one who loves to debate and tell others how wrong they are, if you are one who would turn your back on another because of how they believe or behave… Then guess what… You are NOT ruled by a God of love, the one and only true God, you aren’t one with God, you aren’t a creation of love, you are ruled by the god of this world… WHICH IS YOUR CARNAL EGO THE ANTI-CHRIST!

So, which type of fruit are you bringing to table?

A heart of love produces love… A corrupt and hateful heart produces hate and corruption.

Sadly, most are ruled by another god indeed, and by their fruit you shall know these hypocrites, for they too are accusers of the brethren, they too judge, they waste, they too roam about seeking whom they may devour…

In fact some of these Jesus shouting, devil loving, children of ignorance may even want to come on here and make their presence known. Because the darkness hates the light. Liars hate the truth because they believe their lie is the truth. Yet, the truth cannot be offended and does not need to be defended… SO WHY DO THEY GET SO ANGRY? Why did the religious elite of Jesus’ day want him dead for simply telling the world to love and be who they truly are?

The answer is CONTROL!

The children of the god of this world (ego/anti-christ) hate the children of the kingdom because their fruit shows them just how misled they are.

Millions of you are children of your ignorant carnal devil of an ego and you don’t even know it.

A tree is known by its fruit, and salvation is now, wake up and smell the coffee because the army Joel spoke of is here, the “greater things than these” is being done now, so study to be quiet and go within and LOVE!

Test your spirits (thoughts/words) to see if they be of God and Love which is truth or not!

Live, laugh, love, together we are going to change this world… For we are ONE!

Change is coming and we are apart of it… AND TO DO THIS WE MUST KNOW WHO THE REAL ENEMY IS!

TEACHING 2
THE ANTI-CHRIST IS WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE!

The Anti-Christ sits on the Throne of God, declaring himself to be God… I got news for you… THAT ANTI-CHRIST is WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE.

The Anti-Christ is the exact opposite of what and who CHRIST is… Hence the title, “ANTI” — The origin of the prefix anti- and its variant ant- is an ancient Greek word which meant “against” or “opposite.”

So people, the ANTI-CHRIST would be a force that works against CHRIST. It would be the exact opposite of CHRIST.

One sees the Christ and Anti-Christ in the YIN YANG symbol. But to understand the “anti-christ”, to understand the enemy hiding in plain sight, let us first examine what and who CHRIST IS.

CHRIST is explained as the power of God, and the wisdom of God in 1 Cor 1:24

CHRIST is OUR POWER AND WISDOM as well. For God said, “all that is mine is thine”… All that is God’s is ours. So God’s power and wisdom is OUR POWER AND WISDOM.

Christ is not Jesus’ last name. The Christ, or the Messiah, is a TITLE of one who has overcome the world. Christ is one who has risen from the death of ignorance. The Christ is the title of ONE who is ONE WITH GOD.

Christ is the POWER and WISDOM of God being manifested through a VESSEL/MESSENGER in the temporal world. CHRIST is the POWER behind the enlightened individual. There is POWER and TRUTH and LOVE and HOPE and SALVATION in CHRIST. It is the POWER AND WISDOM OF GOD… So when someone says, CHRIST is a literal man preaching somewhere on the planet the scriptures teach us to NOT GO AFTER HIM. Because CHRIST is NOT A MAN. The Kingdom of God does NOT come with observation.

Luke 17:23
And they shall say to you, See here; or, see there: go not after them, nor follow them.

Christ is the power and wisdom of God that gives life, freedom, and the power of creation to man.

Remember, CHRIST IN YOU is the hope of Glory. Not Christ coming again soon, as many of you have been told.

When CHRIST COMES, as we read earlier about “Christ coming in the flesh”, the word “comes” does not mean to come again in the future or from the east or the west, it means to be “REVEALED/UNCOVERED/MANIFESTED”

So when we read the words, “CHRIST COMES” we understand it to be… The POWER AND WISDOM OF GOD BEING REVEALED WITHIN US and EXPRESSED INTO THE WORLD.

So now that we know what Christ is, let us look at what the ANTI or OPPOSITE and OPPOSING force of Christ is.

If Christ is the POWER and WISDOM of God. Then the ANTI-CHRIST would have to be something that has NO POWER and is IGNORANT.

The opposite of WISDOM is IGNORANCE… The Opposite of Power is having NO POWER over your life.

Do you believe you have no control over your life? Do you believe that things happen to you and not for you, because of you? Do you think you are not in control? Do you worship a God outside of you, far away, coming again soon?

Well, if this is true, you are ANTI-CHRIST… Which simply means you are existing in an ignorant state of powerlessness.

1 John 2:18
Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

This ANTI-CHRIST has a NUMBER, scripture tells us to calculate it. Six Hundred and Sixty Six… The liars of this world have tried to convince themselves that their CARNAL EGO was not the problem, and so they allowed their carnal ego to weave a tale. The DEVIL is the father of all lies after all.

And so this “anti-christ” of an ego created a spooky monster and said that this anti-christ is some coming world leader, etc. Yet, the number of this ANTI-CHRIST is explained plainly in the very same scriptures these ignorant anti-christs quote…

Revelation 13:18
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

Let me put this in scientific words as well… We are NOT our carbon based shell of a body. We ARE the POWER and LIFE within this VESSEL. We are NOT this vessel just as we are not the car we drive but the DRIVER of the car.

The problem is most begin to believe their dying, decaying body is who they are. This is what it means to be dead/ignorant in ADAM (mankind’s 1st state). There are many that believe their carbon based bodies are who they are. However, this carbon based body belief is in fact “ANTI-CHRIST.” – the opposite of truth, the opposite of who and what you really are.

Think it not strange that 666 is also the number for CARBON BASED LIFE FORMS. 6 electrons, 6 neutrons, 6 Protons… the physical form that dies is the EXACT opposite of the LIFE FORCE within in, that creates it and kills it.

So, we can see 666 is nothing really of a mystery. IT IS THE NUMBER OF CARNAL MAN as scriptures states!

The ENEMY is not some being outside of us. A man’s enemies are they of the man’s own house. The lies of the carnal ego/ID/devil/Anti-Christ is the enemy.

The ANTI-CHRIST sits on the THRONE OF GOD, which is your heart/mind, sitting in the TEMPLE of God which is YOUR CONSCIOUS LIFE, declaring “himself” to be God, WHICH IS WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE but ARE NOT!

CHRIST is who you really are within… YOU REALLY are the power and wisdom of God manifested in this world. Each of us part of one body, united, co-creating as we believe. The problem is, many have forgotten who they truly are… Which is why the scriptures call for your REMEMBRANCE.

Your MIND is the throne of God. Your BRAIN is the THRONE that God sits on and rules from… The 24 elders pictured are the 24 cranial nerves that sit around the throne of God, in the Temple (which is you) worshipping 24/7 because your 12 pairs of cranial nerves, or 12 disciples, always carry out the functions of the ghost in the machine, which is God, which is EXPRESSED through CHRIST, which is WHO YOU REALLY ARE!

Now, when we come to this world we all TAKE UPON OURSELVES the CARES/SINS of this world. We start putting our faith outside of us, we stop believing we have POWER and we become IGNORANT of who we truly are. In so doing, WE DIE TO THE TRUTH and become ANTI-TRUTH.

Who you think you are is actually in control of your life. Your fear, your doubt, your hate, your worry, your shame, your pride, ALL OF IT is ANTI-CHRIST and if you think all of that noise is YOU, then you are anti-christ my friend. However, don’t worry because in the end EVERYONE is saved from their ignorance. Because you can only play hide and seek with yourself for so long. (Pictured in Genesis when Adam was hiding)

2 Timothy 2:13
If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

So the wrong idea of who you are will eventually be destroyed completely, by the TRUTH… Or should I say, by the COMING (REVEALING) OF THE TRUTH OF WHO YOU REALLY ARE.

2 Thessalonians 2:8
And then shall that Wicked (EGO) be revealed, whom the Lord (the one who really exists) shall consume with the spirit (true thoughts) of his mouth (truth spoken and heard), and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

The ANTI-CHRIST is destroyed by the BRIGHTNESS of the TRUTH being revealed to you. When CHRIST COMES… When the power and wisdom of God is revealed to you, you will know who you TRULY ARE and what you are truly capable of…

When this happens, the ANTI-CHRIST (your carnal ego/who you ignorantly believe yourself to be) is DESTROYED!

This is SALVATION! You are saved from the lies you have believed and delivered from the chains of your false identity.

So, then the question becomes for many… Who does the saving?

It is a man from thousands of years ago that died for us… or is this man our example who spoke the words of truth that SETS US FREE?

TEACHING 3
BELIEVE IN JESUS OR IN WHAT JESUS TAUGHT?

Many will try to convince you that Jesus TAUGHT that we are all to worship Jesus, and Jesus alone. That our faith should be in what a man from two thousand years ago did. That only by believing in Jesus will we know salvation. However, if one truly studies the scriptures you will find this is not the case.

Jesus taught us that the greatest of all was the servant of all… the master, or the one who receives praise and service is less than the one who serves… Jesus ALWAYS directed people with. He never asks for worship or praise, when people asked him how they should pray, he spoke of going to the source directly, within! The Messenger of Truth ALWAYS directs the disciple to GOD. It is not about the literal man, it is always about the SPIRIT within the man. Jesus knew this, ignorant religion corrupted this, and now many need to be set free from this.

Rev 22: But he said to me, “Don’t do that! I am a fellow servant with you and with your fellow prophets and with all who keep the words of this scroll. Worship God!”

Jesus made it clear, we are all the same, the difference was Jesus knew who he was and who God really was.

Jesus never taught that he was greater than another. In fact, Jesus taught the opposite. The greatest of all is the servant to all. Jesus never wanted to be worshipped, much less wanted people to think they could sit on their egotistical buts and just believe on him and do nothing to finally experience eternal life.

Jesus never wanted people to pray to him or to idolize him, Jesus wanted people to take his name (which means to take on his nature)… To ask things in Jesus’ name, never meant to ask for literal things and then literally say, “in jesus name we pray” how foolish this would be.

People are constantly asking Jesus for this and that, yet he was clear, we were never to “pray” to jesus… In the day people wake up from this nonsense they will go directly to the father.

John 16:23
And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

To ask for something in the “name” of Jesus means to exist in the NATURE of Jesus… which means everything we do is salted with love, truth, and faith…

Jesus was not trying to get people to go against the commandment in scripture that warns us to NEVER compare God to anything in the earth, beneath the earth, above the earth, or in the sea… Much less, the IMAGE OF A CORRUPTIBLE CARBON BASED LIFE FORMS 666.

Romans 1:23
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Jesus was NOT trying to get people to believe in HIM… NO! Jesus wanted people to believe in the WORDS he spoke. These words held the key to eternal life (righteousness, peace, joy, power, unity).

People today picture a man named Jesus with his beard and sandals and they believe HE, the FLESH MAN is salvation for what HE physically did… But this could not be farther from Jesus’ message. HIS WORDS WERE LIFE, not believing in his flesh and bone body.

THE TRUTH SETS YOU FREE, NOT THE ONE DELIVERING THE MESSAGE. IT IS ABOUT BELIEVING THE THINGS THAT HE SAID.

John 6:63
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

Jesus was sharing the truth of who we all are. When people wanted to know the way to find eternal life, or wanted to know the “father” Jesus said, you know the commands follow them, get rid of everything that you put your faith in besides the truth.

Jesus also said, HE WAS THE WAY! This last statement many misunderstand. Jesus went on to explain to know God you must know what he knew, do as he did, live as he lived and love as he loved… He said, to know God you must follow my example. Jesus said, I am the way and you too must take up your cross and do what I did.

Jesus knew the ONLY way to know God was to be as he was, for as he was and is so are we. Jesus knew the truth of who he was… He said, I am in the father and the father in me… He said, that he and God were one, and went on to say… So are we!

Jesus even prayed that one day we (ignorant carnal dead carbond based life forms 666) would wise up and believe his words… Words that led those who believe to eternal life.

His spoken words were the TRUTH that set people free, for it is the TRUTH that sets people free from
lies they need saving from. Jesus, wanted everyone to know that, “as he was in the world so are you,” and that, “we are all one”. He even explained the day would come when you wouldn’t look to him for answers because one day you will know the Father for yourself… As the scriptures state, the day will come when you won’t need to go door to door saying know The Lord, for all will.

Jesus didn’t want to be worshipped the way people teach today…. He wanted people to ARISE, to BELIEVE and be BORN AGAIN!

Jesus, wanted people to know as they were known… Which means he wanted people to know who they truly were… Jesus wanted people to know who they were deep within… Which he explained was the only way to salvation….

The scriptures teach us that the hope of Glory is realizing the CHRIST within… This great title is the hope of every man, that we all realize who we really are. Which is also, a savior in this world. Those who enter the sheep gate who hear his voice, which means who understand his words, the same becomes the shepherd of the sheep. And today many are coming forward.

Jesus taught the very same things I share as well… That we REALLY need to have faith… It is our FAITH that makes us whole… Jesus said things like, “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them… Whatever a man believes he receives, all things are possible with faith”… Now mind you Jesus also said with GOD all things are possible. Almost as if to say that God and Faith are linked and forever united… And that God and Faith and TRUTH and LOVE is in fact within us all! WHICH IT IS!

So to believe the way many believe, to put your salvation in the future and in the arms of another man instead of believing the truth of who you are, you are in fact dead in your trespasses.

Jesus, and many others make it clear that no man, much less Jesus himself is to be worshipped or idolized.

The bible was never about a single man, it was always about MANKIND as a whole. The first and last ADAM.

The story has always been about Adam (mankind as a whole) taking upon themselves the sins (lies) of the world and dying to the truth of who they were, being cast out of themselves and cast out of the unity they once shared with the “Father” and then finding there way home through Christ (the 2nd MAN they become in this world)… But Jesus, like I and others know, “who will believe our report, and unto whom is the arm of the Lord revealed.”

This is why Jesus said people must believe his words to leave the ignorance of the first man and enter into the life and peace of the second man… The risen man… The man of the heart, Christ in you!

So you see it has never been about believing that something died for you, but it has always been about LEARNING from our “older brother, first-born among many, first-born of the dead… The one who went before us who also is risen in our hearts when his words of truth become our words of truth. Because the word has always been within us all…

Jesus wanted you to know what he knew, just as I and others want you to know what we know… It’s all about knowing the truth and faith comes first by hearing it!

Eternal life is hearing, believing and knowing where it all comes from.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (John 5:24 KJV)

We pass from the death of ignorance into the life of possibility the instant we believe the words that Jesus shared… That I am now sharing… That many will share as we are all.

The WORD of God is within us all… For we are all, as Jesus said, the word and lights of the world, the words of our life are meant to be read of all men… We are all living epistles people… We are all more than we have known.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” (John 14:12 KJV)

Start reading between the lines and beneath the black and white of ye literal… It is the spirit of the story that gives life… Now believe already, be born again into the reality of who you are, and produce fruit for the whole of the world to feast on!

THE TRUMPET SOUNDS – FEAR NO MORE!

THE TRUMPET SOUNDS – FEAR NO MORE!

This short powerful mini documentary will take your breath away! You have been lied to by this world your whole life, you have been fed a constant diet of fear, worry, shame, greed, and pride. Because of this cruel brainwashing you took upon yourself the sins/lies of the world and WHO YOU TRULY ARE IN ESSENCE DIED… but that is about to change!

You are more than you know! This short mini movie will open your eyes to a great enemy hiding in plain sight. “Roaming to and fro seeking whom it may devour”. This “enemy” disguises itself as “god” and most worship this liar as god. For your enemy is most certainly the god of this carnal ignorant world. Yet, this enemy is not your god anymore… because now the truth you have begun to see clear.

This enemy, your adversary, the devil is also called the carnal ego/id of mankind. This is the JUDAS that dines with you, sits at the table with you, and betrays you for THE LOVE OF MONEY AND POWER. This “enemy” is the root of your fear and it has stolen your life away with it.

The “god” of this world, the devil, the serpent, which is man’s carnal ego or the “ID”, is the very enemy people have been worshipping their whole lives unaware. Because of this few know how to truly live their life. Life has become more of a chore, it is about suffering and fear and worry and doubt instead of righteousness (right thinking), peace, joy and power…

HOWEVER, THAT IS ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE!

It’s time to wake up to the new day we are in and LIVE our life!

After watching this video you may just see “SATAN, FALL LIKE LIGHTENING FROM HEAVEN (your higher thinking)!”

The TRUTH sets you free from the lies you believe about yourself and others. When the DAYSTAR rises in your heart you will know which voice to listen to, which words to bring forth, which thoughts to manifest and which thoughts to cast away and you will FEAR NO MORE.

Please enjoy this short mini movie called “The Trumpet Sounds – Fear No More” and enjoy a poem I wrote on this topic called, “Two In One Bed” – the double minded man is unstable in all his ways. It’s time to be of ONE MIND, ONE HEART, ONE SPIRIT, ONE TRUTH, ONE LOVE, AND ONE LIFE TOGETHER! Please do share with others and subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already. Much love to you and yours, Jacob


“TWO IN ONE BED”
There are two voices in everyone’s head.
The quieter voice is always the better choice, because the louder offers only fear and dread.
The quieter voice is love and truth, the louder voice will lie to you and make you wish you were dead.
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
This is why you must find the quieter voice today.
The louder voice will shout and pout and will do everything to make you believe these thoughts are actually coming from you.
The Louder voice will demand action, demand revenge, and will always make you do what you should not do.
The quieter is your hope, salvation, and great reward, this you will find.
The louder will grind hope and peace to powder if you allow it each and every time.
This is why the still quiet voice you must find.
You can choose to win or lose, whether to fall or rise.
The loudest is the room is always wrong, while the one who thinks before he acts and speaks is wise.
So take your thoughts captive and see whether they be true or lies.
In the end, my friend, you will thank me, because the quiet voice is peace, power, purpose and perfection finally realized.

ELYSIUM NOW

ELYSIUM NOW

Today I took my son to see the movie Elyisium. I couldn’t help but see the writer’s ambition to show the world as sad as it is today and warn us of where it may be tomorrow. The earth in Elyisium was a place most miserable, which is very much like the lives most people are living today. The miserable on Earth turned to violence, drugs, and theft to finally make their way to Elysium, who of course is ruled by the wealthy, who only dangle that carrot of paradise to keep the poor earthlings at bay.

Isn’t this the way we are all living now? Like slaves? What if I told you the way out of your suffering is not electing the right leader, waiting for the government to make things right. Nor is freedom found at the end of a gun or revolution.

What if I told you, you hold the key to paradise within? Would you listen?

So what does it mean to “come” in the name of the Lord? And who is the one who does this? Is it Jesus? Is it a prophet? Is it us? Is it God? Well, as always many religious organizations believe they have this figured out. However, and of this I am certain, not everything you hear from religious leaders is true. In fact, in my years of study I have found much of what is commonly held as the “gospel” truth couldn’t be farther than the good news I know many of you reading today have come to know. (Not of your doing of course!)

Matthew 16:17
Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.


You don’t “come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the truth” by your own egotistical effort. As so many like you quote…

2 Peter 1
20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.


YES! It’s all about the REVELATION of things. And this is not of our own will, but these revelations are gifts given to us by God, reveald to us by that Holy Spirit within us which brings all things to our remembering. In other words, these are righteoues thoughts that flood our mind with truth, separating the DARK (ignorant thoughts) from the LIGHT (thoughts of truth), helping us to distinguish between them, and more importantly which thought we should heed and which we should discard.

To find out what it means to truly “Come in the name of the Lord”, I couldn’t just sit down and begin to write what “I believed” to be true. First I had an idea of what it might mean. Some people call it an epiphany (which by the way is defined as “something manifested”). And what a revelation I had. It began with the following scripture.

Matthew 23:39
For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.


At face value, this scripture sounds like it is speaking of Jesus the man. And that the unbelievers wouldn’t see JESUS the man, again until there were happy to see… Jesus the man. RIGHT?

Sorry but that is not the case. That is not even close to what that scripture means. So let’s go up a couple of verses here in Matthew to put some things in perspective.

Matthew 23:37-39
O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

38Behold, YOUR HOUSE is left unto you desolate.

39For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.


Did you notice what is left Desolate? It is THE HOUSE of God which is left DESOLATE. And of course, we are the HOUSE OF GOD, for those that don’t know that, God dwells in us, we are the TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD… But let’s stick with that word, DESOLATE for a moment.

Now that word sounds like it means, God departs from us completely. UNTIL, of course, we say BLESSED IS “HE” that comes in the name of the Lord. First let me point out the WORD DESOLATE translates better into “SOLITARY, LONELY” – Like a wife left by her husband, OR sheep no longer being led by a Shephard…

Now why does a Hen gather her chicks under her wings? Well there are many reasons, warm is one, but the main reason is protection. Under the wings of a Hen, a baby chick which doesn’t know any better will bot follow after the fox and end up as lunch. And so this is a great allegory for us. Because without the guidance and protection of the Hen, the chicks lives are always in danger. Under the wing of the Hen, the chicks really cannot go where they want, they are fed, warm, and secure. But once they decide to follow after their own will and not after the will of one that knows better, they become lunch!

This is exactly what is happening in Religion today. It is no different than thousands of years ago. In Jerusalem, they were buying and selling in the temple, saving the choice seats for the important people in the temples, making long prayers, wearing expensive and gaudy outfits, bragging about all they do for the (body of believers), condemning those that aren’t part of their particular faith, the list goes on and on. Today we see the same thing, right outside of the “sanctuary” we see tables sets up with all sorts of books, videos, dvd’s, oils, tamboreens, etc. Today they are still selling the sacrifice in the outer court, within the choice seats are still saved for the “important people”, the leaders are still dressing to the nines and living like rock stars, and yes they still brag to their congregations about how important it is to give your money, and how much they themselves give. As the scripture says,

Ecclesiastes 1:9
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.


So it is nothing shocking that the HOUSE (mankind’s soul) is left desolate (LONELY, FEELING ALONE, DESERTED and WITHOUT GUIDANCE) … And the reason is simple. Religion teaches Man is in control, God teaches man has not control. So when man goes about to establish his own righteousness (which is as filthy rags) he begins to live out of the assumption that HE OR SHE is in control and that God is somehow far away, or waiting to come again. (Sound familiar?)

But in this scripture, Jesus said,

Matthew 23:39
For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.


Now does this mean you won’t physically and literally see Jesus the man until you can say, YEAH JESUS YOU ARE THE BEST AND BLESSED? Once again the answer is NO!

Jesus is not speaking of literally SEEING HIM, what he is speaking of is understanding what he understands, knowing what he knows. It never EVER had anything to do with literally SEEING Jesus, as Jesus was always focused on showing GOD WITHIN!

John 14:9
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father


And since NO ONE CAN LITERALLY SEE GOD at any time, this has nothing to do with literally seeing Jesus as God. But it has everything to do with Jesus the man Revealing God through his words, his actions, and most importantly his fruit, LOVE!

John 1:18
No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him


So no one can literally SEE GOD, but the SON declares him, reveals him to others. And THAT is what Jesus was sent to do, as we are sent to do, to be LIVING EPISTLES READ OF ALL MEN!

So while this scripture may seem to indicate that Jesus is saying, “You won’t see me literally, physically again until you are happy to see me,” the truth of what is REALLY being said is far from that. In addition is has more to do with you, me, and humanity as a whole than it does one single man named Jesus.

Let’s look at the last part of this scripture, UNTIL we can say, “BLESSED IS “HE” THAT COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD”.

As I wrote earlier, this does not mean JESUS doesn’t return until we are excited and want to see him, WAITING FOR JESUS TO RETURN IS ACTUALLY THE PROBLEM. One of the biggest problems there is today. Because it takes our eyes off the true relationship with God within us, and places God outside of us, far from us, making this God not only seem distant for a God who forsakes us and leaves us. Which, many Christians teach today, sadly.

But what this REALLY MEANS is we WON’T SEE (UNDERSTAND/PERCIEVE) the TRUTH (that Jesus revealed)until “we” UNDERSTAND that IT IS US that WILL REVEAL CHRIST.

We will continue to believe we are ALONE in this world if we believe that God is somehow far from us. And the lies of religion aren’t doing us any favors, by teaching everyone to “invite” Christ to come in OUR HEART, as if WE DON’T ALL HAVE OUR EXISTENCE IN GOD AND CHRIST TO BEGIN WITH.

Acts 17:28
For in him we live, and move, and have our being.


Our life is HID in CHRIST. Which means WE HAVE LIFE! The problem is the ONLY WAY TO FIND THIS LIFE IS TO UNDERSTAND WHO WE ARE, AS CHRIST! To find our life, we must find Christ first! And we don’t have to look far.

Colossians 1:27
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:


So for those religious leaders that teach that God’s holy Spirit which is Christ is somehow far away in a distant galaxy, waiting for you to say a certain “sinners prayer” you’re sadly mistaken. That belief is a believing in another god, one that hates, one that is distant, and one that is easily thwarted by man’s will. This distant Angry God Man created, so CARNAL MAN (who killed the TRUTH) could continue to rule, as God.

This is what the whole fall in the garden is all about. The Fall takes place in us, the instant we start eating from the TREE OF “WE ARE IN CONRTOL, WE KNOW WHAT PLEASES GOD AND WHAT DOESN’T, WE KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT AND WHAT IS WRONG” – Eating (becoming one with the fruit of this line of thinking), eating from this TREE (the carnal mind) indeed makes man believe man is god, in control, and that everything is dependent on the decisions man makes. But that is what the problem is.

If we begin to say that God is far from us, Christ is waiting to return, and we choose when and how. That makes us god in our deceived minds and keeps us from trusting God, as Jesus did.

Here are some of his greatest hits, “I can do nothing of myself”,”Not my will but thine”, “the words I speak the Father tells me to speak”, “the things I do the Father shows me to do”… Truly nothing can thwart God’s will, and this is what WE MUST UNDERSTAND! That God is in control of EVERYTHING, once we accept this than we enter into his rest, we cease from our labour and accept who he says we are… HIS CHILDREN!

I know this is very hard for many of you to receive, but WE are the VERY BODY in WHICH CHRIST will APPEAR! That is the mystery, CHRIST IS IN YOU, CHRIST IS YOU, CHRIST IS ALL THERE HAS EVER BEEN. The anointing of God’s Holy Spirit is our life! But if we are waiting for a separate man to return, we will be waiting a long time. We need to be excited about this, we need to accept who God has made us to be, and be with who made us to be by simply resting and trusting God is in control.

Now once you realize that WE are the BODY OF CHRIST, the MIND OF CHRIST, and have the NAME OF CHRIST… once we understand we are CHRIST, then we will be able to TRULY SAY, “BLESSED ARE THOSE that COME (ARE REVEALED) in the NAME (true nature) of the LORD” – We will see that those who understand the TRUTH of who they are, “GOD’S CHILD”, are blessed.

Now I know in scripture, we see Jesus arriving many different ways, in the clouds, (clouds are witnesses by the way), riding a white horse, as lightning, rain, etc. etc… But I want you to understand that each and every one of these are allegories, ARE US!

When Jesus came into town, many flipped out. They were so excited to see and hear this man, that they had heard was coming. Others expected to see a conquering savior riding a proud white stallion, yet this Savior came in riding a meek ass and colt.

Matthew 21:5 Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.

Okay, here’s a little nugget you might find interesting, a COLT is a HORSE under the AGE OF FOUR. The number four, forty, etc… are symbolic numbers of testing and trying, (a pregnancy of sorts (40 weeks)) before you WAKE out of your slumber of death (Ignorance). Lazarus was dead for FOUR days for example.

John 11:39
Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.


You see the ANIMAL, Jesus comes riding in on in scripture isn’t yet fully mature, and we are not fully mature. This is an allegory of how that TRUTH begins its ministry in our heart.

Now even though it sounds like I am putting all the focus on the symbolism here. You have to remember that the physical, literal world is needed to relay these spiritual truths. That’s right, I am not saying there wasn’t a literal Jesus, sitting on a literal ass, not at all. I am simply stating what may, or may not, have literally happened, happened for us to UNDERSTAND the SPIRITUAL MEANING OF IT.

The Temporal (SEEN) world always bears witness of the ETERNAL UNSEEN world within.

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:


And yes, that goes for your life as well. From how you live your life, to where you work, how you behave, who you befriend, to what car you drive, pets you have, etc… All symbolism of what is going on SPIRITUALLY.

I know it sounds far out, but there is significance to whether your bedroom is a dirty mess or not. If it faces the sun or does not. If you live in a basement apart, or own a two-floor home.

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING is here to teach us about the only TRUTH there is, GOD and HIS CHRIST (us) who we FORGOT WE ARE.

The CHRIST that DIED for US (Who we think we are/ Our CARNAL Ego).

The truth of who we are was killed by who we think we are. As Cane killed Abel, our first natural carnal man (OUR EGO), killed the spiritual nature (OUR LIFE/CHRIST).

The good news is, the first Man (Adamic thinking) will be last, and the last man (Christ is/as Us) will be First into the KINGDOM OF GOD.

Acts
4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom YOU crucified, whom God raised from the DEAD, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.


People see this scripture and believe it speaks of something that happened two thousand years ago. That other’s crucified Christ and God raised Christ from one man’s death, as opposed to seeing that the DEAD that are raised is ALL OF HUMANITY (lost in Ignorant Carnal THINKING). We are the “DEAD” God raises Christ from.

1 Corinthians 15:22
For as in Adam ALL die, even so in Christ shall ALL be made alive.


We are the “GRAVE” Christ rises from.

Matthew 27:52
And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose.

Luke 11:44
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for YOU ARE AS GRAVES which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.


This is why when he (WE) is RESSURECTED, the BODY OF CHRIST, comes out of their GRAVES (tombs of false beliefs)

John 5:28
Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which ALL that are in the graves (IGNORANCE/HELL) shall HEAR his voice.


Look a GRAVE is something that helps people remember THE LIFE THAT ONCE WAS… This is humanity in a nutshell, walking around DEAD wishing for LIFE. But those that are DEAD in their GRAVES (IGNORANCE) will HEAR (PERCIEVE) the Truth (his voice) and will LIVE! – Obviously this scripture is not talking about literal dead people, literal dead people cannot literally hear anything.

No the DEAD, are the CARNAL MINDED!

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


Notice as long as you are ignorant (carnally minded) you are DEAD, but once you come to the TRUTH, you finally know LIFE AND PEACE! This is what we are all coming into, this day, this resurrection, REJOICE ALREADY!

John 5:25
Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live


To be CARNALLY MINDED is DEATH. This is the DEATH Christ rises from, the TOMB of our false beliefs that CHRIST is LOOSED from.

We’re not talking Night of the Living Dead stuff here, we are talking about SYMBOLISM.
Just as the COLT’S ASS is also symbolism of US, in our IGNORANT state.

Job 11:12
For vain MEN would be wise, though man be born like a wild ASS’S COLT.


Mankind is BORN like an ASS’S COLT… An immature BEAST OF BURDEN.

John 12:15
Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass’s colt.


This is the way CHRIST comes into the world, riding US. But first we must be LOOSED of the ignorant chains that keep us bound.

Matthew 21:2
Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me.


This is also our job as Sons and Daughters of God, to find those that are BURDENED and TIED and BOUND by the lies of the world, to LOOSE them and BRING THEM TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH, which is CHRIST IN THEM.

Salvation is not belief in a man from thousands of years ago, salvation is here and now, WITHIN YOU. You cannot find freedom believing in something OUTSIDE of yourself, or waiting for someone to come again. You can only know FREEDOM by understanding YOU NEED NOT WAIT to be Free.

Acts 4:12
Neither is there salvation in ANY OTHER: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.


You WILL NOT FIND SALVATION in any OTHER. You will ONLY FIND SALVATION WITHIN… Yet, so many are trying to find salvation in ANOTHER. As opposed to the TRUTH that is WITHIN.

The ONLY way to be saved is to let go of everything that is NOT TRUE, AND TAKE HOLD of the TRUTH of GOD, which is ALL IN ALL.

We need to stop believing the lies we have been taught, we need to put our faith WITHIN GOD and stop placing GOD without. Stop waiting for someone to save you and understand that SALVATION is for ALL.

Luke 3:6
And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.


And ALL carnal people shall come to the KNOWLEDGE OF THIS GREAT TRUTH and the STATURE OF THE PERFECT MAN (CHRIST).

Ephesians 4:13
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ


This is our SALVATION, to have the KNOWLEDGE of WHO WE ARE… We WILL BECOME THE PERFECT MAN (image of God)

Luke 1:77
To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins.


The whole point of Jesus’ ministry was to GIVE KNOWLEDGE of SALVATION to others, to show them that the only way to SALVATION was the REMISSION of SIN. But what does that mean?

The DISEASE of SIN must go into REMISSION, as any disease goes into remission. It’s signs and symptoms must go away.

So we must first understand what SIN is, to see why it needs to go bye, bye.

Psalm 69:5
O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.

Proverbs 24:9
The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.


It is our FOOLISH thinking that needs to go away. The lies we believe, the thoughts that God is far away, and not OUR LIFE. Who is the FOOL AGAIN?

Psalm 14:1
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.


To believe in a DISTANT God is to NOT BELIEVE in God, and to BE A FOOL. To believe MAN is GOD is to NOT BELIEVE in God and be a FOOL. Many say Jesus the man is God. But we know…

Numbers 23:19
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?


Now, God may not BE A MAN, but GOD IS IN THE MAN. Because God is in CHRIST (the ANNOINTED ONE) and CHRIST is IN MAN.

2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself.


Now, let’s use simple Logic. “Christ IN you” “God in Christ” – there is no need to be waiting for any return, God never left us, our thoughts left GOD. But even this was part of the plan.

So, to find salvation we need to stop putting faith in a dead flesh man named Jesus (OUTSIDE OF US), and UNDERSTAND we are in fact the DEAD JESUS thinking God forsook us, and the CHRIST that will RISE FROM OUR DEATH (ignorance) – We need to start putting our faith in the God that is WITHIN us all… this is our HOPE OF GLORY, CHRIST.

*The Glory by the ways is “The hidden thing” – It is the GLORY OF GOD TO CONCEAL A THING. Christ comes (is revealed) in the glory of God (the which was hidden within us)

John 17:22
And the glory (revealed truth) which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one.


THERE IS NO DIVISION IN ONE. ONE is ALL THERE IS. And until you understand this, your house will be left DESOLATE – (you will believe God is far from you, and you will be as the prodigal starving from unity and love in a land of famine) – But once you understand that BLESSED IS HE (anyone) who COMES (who is revealed) IN THE NAME (nature) OF THE LORD… Then you will SEE THE SALVATION OF YOUR HEART. And YOU will know who you are, and GOD’s CHRIST will be GLORIFIED WITHIN YOU!

2 Thessalonians 1:10
When he shall come to be glorified IN HIS SAINTS, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.


SO COME IN THE NAME OF THE LORD ALREADY WILL YOU?

CHURCH OF FACEBOOK

Below is a thread that began on my page a couple of nights ago. One of my friends asked me to post it on her page, I thought I would share the whole thread here as I know there is a lot of great stuff in here. My friend Dean, told me he once came across a woman’s post (he didn’t remember her name)… but she said on facebook: “why pay for the hotdog of religion when people are giving away juicy steak for free.” — I really love that, and have learned so much over the last two years from all my wonderful friends on here. — So please enjoy this, and please add to the conversation here in the comment section. Enjoy Jacob ( I did not edit this, so excuse any mistakes. 🙂

Jacob Israel: ‎”It is the Glory of God to conceal a thing” = God’s glory is to hide something. Christ (the truth) comes (literally means “reaveled”) in the hidden thing. We have this TREASURE HIDDEN in our EARTHEN vessel. What did God conceal? “Isaiah 45:15 Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour”…. No longer I (ego) that lives. Because you give away all you have (all you think you are) to obtain the TREASURE that is HIDDEN in YOU

Glenda Jolly: got it..love it…saving it….much love and healing..keep us posted

Anastacia Hatcher: will be praying 4 ya. thanks 4 the fire balls.

Jacob Israel: Christ comes in The Glory of God = The Hidden thing which is God is revealed by the Power and Wisdom of God… which is WITHIN us. Because our LIFE (God is Life and Love ) is HID in CHRIST (The wisdom of God) – Christ (the wisdom of God) is the Hope of Glory (The hidden thing (God)
meaning – The Wisdom of God in you is the hope of understanding that God is HIDDEN IN YOU! “Ps 82:8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations” — look who else inherits the nations…. Revelation 21:7 “He” that overcometh shall inherit all things

Gayla Masterson: Word/ God/ Jesus/ Us= One. As One you are healed you just need to catch up to it for it is done. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Jacob Israel: When GOD wakes…. OVERCOMES your EGO, God will be ALL IN ALL. Everyone and all things is GOD’S INHERITANCE

Joe Danna: Oh, what must be waiting to be known.

Glenda Jolly: Jacob it is a gradual awakening yes?

Jacob Israel: Glenda, when we wake up from natural sleep, most times we fight it, othertimes it is gradual, for some sick of a NIGHTMARE it is QUICK! 🙂

Jacob Israel: Now here is the riddle? – If God inherits all things, and if we overcome inherits all things… who are we? And what else must be overcome beside the Veil of who we think we are, which God is HIDDEN within. … Hhhhmmmnnnn 🙂 … And who REALLY does the OVERCOMING? …. Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil (THE VEIL/EVIL), but overcome evil (THE VEIL) with good — GOD IS GOOD.

Glenda Jolly: He/God/us – Word/God/Jesus/Us=One. God rises up and overcomes.

Glenda Jolly: God does the overcoming..I can of myself do nothing…right?

Jacob Israel: Jesus said “I” (Ego of Jesus) can do nothing of My “self/ego of Jesus”

Joe Danna: How can we do something that’s already unchangeable/Omnipresent? It was never done in our time/space concepts. It just is. So we need to stop “doing” and just BE (still and know I’m God).

Joe Danna: Is=Mother Ra=Father El=God

Christine Ikenberry Molina: AMEN!! AMEN!! AMEN!! I think some will “leave out” the part where Christ must wake / rise / be formed in you in order for the spirit of God to “Dwell in you”, in order for you to have “eternal life”. They forget that “Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground AND DIE, it abideth alone: but IF IT DIE, IT BRINGETH FORTH MUCH FRUIT.” There is a “resurrection” that must take place. And when HE IS RISEN, we are RISEN WITH HIM! Then we come to know THE POWER of HIS RESURRECTION… by having “part in” THE FIRST RESURRECTION. PTL!! Good luck with your surgery tomorrow, Jacob, and GET WELL SOON!! So you’ll be able to take of that little one that will be arriving soon. It is getting close, isn’t it?

Jacob Israel: The trap is thinking who you think you are (your ego) is God. Who you think you are you must Deny – meaning you don’t really exist as your Ego, Your “Ego” Is not really you. So trust that all things are happening exactly as planned. All things work together indeed. You (your ego) will never be like God…God is hidden in Your Ego, and for many their Ego right now is their god. (god of this world = our lusts, all that is in the world (lust of the eyes, flesh, pride of life))…. Your Egos god is a your Ego (A projection of your Ego)… Your Ego made a god in It’s image (wrathful, angry, hypocritical, not in control, impotent, doesn’t finish anything in victory, jealous, etc.) But the ONE TRUE GOD, which is OUR LIFE, is merely hiding behing the VEIL/EVIL (ignorance) which is man’s ego… “The Veil that is to say, the flesh (carnal thinking/ego” – and the good news, is “that which was, and is not, and yet is” doesn’t really exist, and a lie (who you think you are) only lasts until the BRIGHTNESS (enlightenment) of Christ’s coming (The power and wisdom of God is uncovered, revealed, risen)—- SOOOOOO, ‎”Let go of YOUR ego” for you wafflers out there.

Joe Danna: The ego is just a shell of encapsulated thinking within the One. There would be no sense of limited ego identification, or anything, without the One. The One is in ALL and all is in the One (In you I live and move and have my being). There is NO two sides. There are degrees of wakefulness all within the One. We never really left. Only our sense of identity can be misplaced…and I certainly am not fully SELF-Realized like Jesus and the Avatars. I can’t think who I think I am is God because God is Omnipotent and “I” can’t even control my digestion.

Marie Baker Can you please put this link on my page? I can copy your post but, not all the comments… SPEAK BROTHER~ PS. Pray all is well with you and fam~

Wanda Lee Farlow: There is some might good word here,wow wow ,wow, and truth wow

Ann Trapp Hall: Fabulous!All of you are awesome! I have tasted and have experienced incoruptiblity.. It is amazing and it is all God no us. Prayers for you Jacob.There is still time for that miraculous healing . Come on God..

Dawn Davis Hairston: God Hid Himself in us…..The us who we think we are (ego/carnal man) doesn’t even exist,,,its an idol….and when we (god) rips/ removes that …The true Christ in us is revealed!….good stuff Jacob….great comments too

Suzette Swart :‎….yes, who we think we are does not exist, it is a lie…’The Carnal Mind is no longer within the New Creation, it was crucified with Christ- Golgotha, the place of the Skull, WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST. Then why do we have carnal thoughts and reasonings, because those thoughts of the first Adam are spirit that are outside of us now, that come against us… People think they are not changed because these thoughts come, but the body and soul still maintain contact with the “WORLD” ,, from which these thoughts come to rule the body and soul as they had in Adam just before the fall and all mankind before the unveiling that Christ was slain before the foundation of the world. Those thoughts are just rememberance of the former way of life, but if not taken captive, we will believe they are still our present state, but they are not, they are a lie. (Joseph Black says it very well) JACOB, ALL THE BEST FOR TODAY! Bless you Jacob Israel!!! Awesome thread!

Daniel Fraser: I agree Jacob, The Christ & our Father is hid from the world in all of us, & it is our place to reveal Them to the world. Jesus said in John 14:23 that Him & His (or our) Father will live in us.


Joe Danna
: ‎…and there will be many who are surprised on that day.

Ann Trapp Hall: Right on Suzette.. Daniel that is so true we are the book of Revealation.

—- I hope we all continue to share and learn from each other. Just want to say thank you all for being in my life. Even those who never comment at all. Much love, Jacob Israel

ENTER THE STRAIGHT GATE

ENTER THE STRAIGHT GATE

This video is straight from my heart. It is by far one of my favorite to date, which is ironic considering I thought it would become one of my worst. That alone is a great revelation, sometimes the things that we ignorantly (carnally) believe to be the worst thing for us, when looked at with different eyes (non-judgmental) become one of the greatest things for us and others. Find out the truth of who you are, set your sights on things that are higher, believe all things are possible, and start looking at your life and the life of others as precious. Enter the straight gate and become the shephard of the sheep. Enjoy and feel free to share, Jacob

THE PRINCIPAL THING

THE PRINCIPAL THING

Over the years many Christians have been taught that the most important thing for them to do is to go around and get people to come to their particular churches, and then get them to confess Jesus as Lord. It doesn’t matter if you are Catholic, Pentecostal, Baptist, Lutheran, Jehovah Witness, Mormon, Non-denominational, shoot the list goes on and on, there are so many division in this faith we call Christianity, but the point is, every single denomination teaches the same thing, “get those people to our faith, and get them to confess Jesus.” Now of course, each have different ways of doing this, different means of getting people into “heaven” as they say. For the Catholics its infant baptism then confirmation, for the Church of Christ baptism as an adult is the key, for the Pentecostal’s it’s all about confessing and then getting “spirit filled”, as if somehow the spirit of God is outside of us just waiting for us to say, “Come on in.” For many Evangelicals it’s the same, it’s the sinner’s prayer. You simply ask Jesus to come into your heart. Which of course places the spirit of God’s son somewhere far away, and renders God’s spirit powerless unless you first ask for it and want it. Let me let you all in on a little secret, God doesn’t need an invitation, and the Son of God is closer to all of you then you have ever thought. In fact, this essay is about getting that understanding for yourself. Because it is Wisdom and Understanding that brings you into the Kingdom of God, which by the way is NOT some Kingdom in the sky like the palaces and kingdoms man has made. The Kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU, and scripture tells us clearly what it is.

Romans 14:17
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost

The word “Kingdom” in fact doesn’t mean a literal kingdom, but denotes a RULE OF AUTHORITY. The literal translation is “Reign or Rule”. Here is the Greek word for it, “basileiða” and it’s definition, royal power, kingship, dominion, rule not to be confused with an actual kingdom but rather the right or authority to rule over a kingdom

I know that alone is a wake up call for some of you, but look it up. The Kingdom of God, simply means the RULE OF GOD, and that is WITHIN YOU ALREADY. But back to our essay.

So, for many the key is getting people to come to their places of “worship” and getting them to go up for an altar call, or to “accept Christ in their heart”. Then some churches, ironically will put these people through a training program and test them to see if they are “ready” to truly be baptised in their churches tap water. But the question I have, and you should have, is this what God meant when we read about preaching the Gospel. Is the good news to simply accept a man from two thousand years ago into your heart, get dunked, go to Church, tithe, and scour the earth to find others to join that church?

Matthew 23:15
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves

Back in the day, it wasn’t much different. It was all about getting people to join the club. The problem Jesus saw with this is that these religious leaders were actually doing more harm than good.

Ecclesiastes 1:9
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

Is Solomon right, could the same thing be happening today? Are religious leaders really bringing people into the Kingdom of God, which is the Rule of God, which is the Righteousness, Peace, Joy, and Power of God’s spirit? Well, for many that I know in the “religious system” the answer is no. Of course that doesn’t mean that everyone that goes to man-made “church” is in error, but let’s just say many, many people are missing the PRINCIPAL THING, many are missing the TRUTH, many are missing SALVATION. In fact, many people believe they are saved from some future event, they think that since they literally said “Jesus is Lord” that their afterlife is secure. How wrong they are. Salvation has nothing to do with avoiding a place of infinite torture (since such a place doesn’t exist read my article “to hell with hell” or “lake of fire revealed” for more info on that topic). No Salvation is for the HERE AND NOW!

Luke 19:9
And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham

2 Corinthians 6:2
(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

Yes, SALVATION is for the here and now. And if truth be told Salvation and Resurrection go hand in hand. In fact they are two sides of the same coin. Because to be Saved is to be Born from Above, and to be Born from Above (which means, a higher understanding of the things of God), is to be Resurrected. And like salvation it is in the HERE AND NOW!

John 11:25
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

So if we are not saved from some scary place after we literally die, what are we saved from?

Revelation 12:10
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

We are saved from our CARNAL OLD MAN, the FALSE IMAGE, the FATHER OF ALL LIES, we are saved from OURSELVES. The reason is, we have become ignorant of the TRUTH of who we are in Christ. We have forgotten who we are and believed ourselves to be something we are not. Ephesians puts it beautifully, both how we became LOST and what is done so we are SAVED.

Ephesians 4
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

Notice what the problem is, and was? Our understanding, like the Gentiles of past, was DARKENED. In other words we no longer understood the Light of the Truth, and because out understanding was Darkened, because we became ignorant we became ALIENATED from the LIFE OF GOD through our ignorance. And we began to believe God was somehow far from us, angry at us, we believed ourselves to be unworthy and because of this insecurity and fear we began to act ignorantly.

And unfortunately, religion perpetuates this darkness. As the scripture states, making the congregation TWICE THE CHILD OF HELL (ignorance) that their leaders are. Most churches only reinforce the belief that you need to work for God’s approval, when the OPPOSITE is true. We need to stop believing we are in control and simply put off the WORKS of the OLD IGNORANT MAN and come to the knowledge of the TRUTH OF WHO WE REALLY ARE!

Ephesians 4
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.

We MUST come to the measure of the STATURE of the FULNESS of CHRIST. We must become the PERFECT MAN. And you can’t do this if you only believe there is one from two thousand years ago. We can’t do this if we continue to believe Jesus is somehow special and we are not AS HE IS IN THIS WORLD. And we only come to understand this when we put off the former conversation of the OLD MAN, when we stop accusing ourselves and condemn ourselves and others, when we finally LOVE GOD, AND LOVE OTHERS, and our love is perfected. When this happens we understand, there is no difference between Jesus and Ourselves, in fact we are all ONE.

1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because AS HE IS, SO ARE WE in this world.

If you have brothers or sisters, you don’t esteem one greater than another. The First Born isn’t somehow better than the middle child or the youngest. They are all the same.

Romans 8:29
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren (siblings).

Now, I know this is new for a lot of you. Jesus was condemned for saying he was God’s son. Years later, Christians said, okay, “It’s okay for Jesus to be God’s son, but he’s special and we are definitely not (as he is).” – You see today a greater mystery is unfolding. Many are coming to the knowledge of the truth and the stature of the perfect man. Many are beginning to see that Jesus is the pattern son, meaning we are the same, his story is our story, what he did we must do. And no I don’t mean literally be crucified, but spiritually we are to crucify this Flesh (carnal thinking).

Matthew 16:24
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.

Look at that verse carefully. Jesus took up the Cross, so must we, sure that is easy to see. But what you are missing is the most important part… YOU NEED TO DENY YOURSELF (old belief/ego/carnal nature).

Now this doesn’t mean DEPRIVE yourself which many have taught. It doesn’t mean that at all. In fact the definition of the word a DENY according to any dictionary is to “REFUSE to acknowledge something or someone EXISTS” – (de·ny/diˈnī/Verb 1. Refuse to admit the truth or existence of (something).

Now that opens the floodgates of revelation for those who have eyes to see. If any many will come after me, he must first deny that HE AS HE THINKS HE OR SHE IS does NOT EXIST! And then after the great revelation that who you think you are is nothing, and doesn’t really exist, you TAKE UP THE CROSS and you put that old nature to death and FOLLOW THE SAME PATH AS JESUS. – This my friends is how salvation is found, it is in PUTTING OFF your former beliefs and the belief in who you once thought you were and understanding that YOU ARE GOD’S CHILD! And if a child a JOINT HEIR IN ALL THINGS!

Ephesians 4
22That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23And be renewed in the spirit of your mind.

We have to stop thinking of ourselves as less than, and start seeing ourselves through the eyes of grace. We need to stop condemning ourselves and listening to people who say “you aren’t worthy, you’re worthy of hellfire you darn sinner.” We need to stop listening to people who say, “Do this, join us, and you’ll be saved.” Because the truth is not found there and it never will be found there.

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

You can say Jesus is your Savior until you’re blue in the face. You will never KNOW SALVATION in you don’t know who you are in CHRIST, and the only way to do that is to DO THE WILL OF THE FATHER. And notice how Jesus DOESN’T say, whoever does the WILL OF THE FATHER is my servant or slave.

Mark 3:35
For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother

Once again we see, Jesus saying, WE ARE AS HE IS, brothers and sisters. The question is, what is GOD’S WILL?

John 7
16Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but His (FATHER’S) that sent me. 17If any man will do GOD’S will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

To do God’s Will is to know the DOCTRINE OF GOD, to know the TRUTH of GOD! This, this is the principal thing. This may come as a shock to you, but the PRINCIPAL THING, means MOST IMPORTANT THING. And according to the scriptures, the PRINCIPAL THING IS WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING.

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

This is what we MUST get. WISDOM! It is a TREE OF LIFE! We MUST understand who we are and DENY who we thought we were to know Salvation. I know many will say, “Oh this is gnosticism!” and to be honest it doesn’t matter what you think, what matter is what you know and can confess!

When Jesus was saying “I am the way, the truth, and the life”, he was saying YOU MUST BE AS ME. He wasn’t saying worship me Jesus, he was saying BELIEVE IN ME AND WHAT I AM TELLING YOU! Many looked to Jesus (the man) as being the most important thing there is. The Rich man said…

Matthew 19
16And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God

Jesus always pointed to God, always pointed away from himself. He taught us how to pray “Our FATHER” not as some churches have you praying “our jesus”. We must come to the understanding the ONLY HOPE for our salvation is WITHIN US ALREADY! This is the mystery that has been hidden. Not Christ outside of you, but Christ within you.

Colossians 1:27
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory

Yes my friends it is all about wisdom and understanding. Some will say NO! It is about Christ, to which I will point out 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

To which I will point out what Christ BECOMES for us.

1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption

OF HIM YOU ARE – in Christ Jesus! Jesus means (God is Salvation) – And in understanding you are God’s child and in no need of having to WORK YOUR WAY TO HIM. God delivers you IN HIM, through wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.

The very SPIRIT of God is WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING! When God’s spirit is revealed in you, it is UNDERSTANDING THE TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE IN GOD THROUGH CHRIST that delivers you.

Exodus 31:3
And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.

So many people are waiting for their savior to come. They wait and they wait. But the longer you believe in salvation outside of you to come, the longer you will be deceived. Many are questioning to this day, WHEN WILL JESUS COME, and they did the same thousands of years ago.

Luke 17
20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

In other words, STOP WAITING AND LOOKING IN THE SKY and start looking within, because salvation is here and now. And it is only found in understanding and having the faith that WITHIN YOU is every answer you will ever need.

Jesus never said, I MADE YOU WHOLE… He always said “YOUR FAITH” made you whole.

Luke 8:48
And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace

It’s time for everyone to stop listening to mankind and religion. It is time for people to turn to God and ask God to teach them the truth, to lead them into the truth. You don’t need to check with your Pastors or Religious teachers to find out if what God is revealing to you is truth, you simply need to continue to ask God and seek God and have faith. Because it is your FAITH that makes you whole. And that FAITH comes from the CHRIST IN YOU! The POWER AND WISDOM of God WITHIN YOU!

This is what every single apostle, disciple, prophet, etc, desires for you to know.

Colossians 1:9
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding

Like them, I too want you to know the TRUTH, I desire to know the TRUTH. But the only way to know the TRUTH is to have WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING.

Psalm 51:6
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

And why does God desire us to have WISDOM and TRUTH? Why is WISDOM the principal thing? Because without it, you can never be free.

John 8:32
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free

The TRUTH is, YOU ARE GOD’S CHILD and you died (became ignorant) as Adam did when he began to think he had to do something to be like God, when Adam was like God all along!

So pray for wisdom already! And don’t go to man for it, go to God!

James 1
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

REAL RESURRECTION OF CHRIST NOW!


REAL RESURRECTION OF CHRIST NOW

Recently, I, and a group of new friends, have been discussing a very important topic, the resurrection. I posted an essay on this subject awhile ago which laid out many reasons that I believe the resurrection takes place inside of us, and may not necessarily be something that happens after we physically die. Not that I don’t believe in an after life, or that we may in fact return to earth in a new body, as Elijah did, to carry out our purpose if not complete. The truth is no one really know what happens after we die, but there is plenty of evidence out there with Near Death Experiences and the study of brain activity to prove that after we die physically, who we are spiritually lives on.

But today’s paper is not about what happens after we physically die, it is about what is happening in the here and now. I believe the problem with most religions is they are too focused on what happens after you die. What they don’t teach is that experiencing Eternal Life and the Kingdom of God is not a future event but a NOW event.

Luke 17:19-21
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. 20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you

So while many religious leaders and religious organizations focus everyone’s attention to what happens after they die, I will focus people to the here and now. Because NOW is where salvation is, it has nothing to do with something you experience after you die.

Luke 19:9
And Jesus said unto him, THIS DAY is salvation come to this house

And what is salvation? Is salvation being set free from something that happens in the future? Or is salvation something that saves you now? Use your head, if you are drowning you don’t need a lifeguard after you drown, you need to be saved in the here and now. And SALVATION is a now event. It is the moment you cross over from the death of your suffering, ignorance, fear, and struggle, into the life of liberty, peace, truth, and hope.

You will find that this is what the resurrection of Christ is, as well. You become a new creature, the old you was dead (ignorant) and the new you is born again (resurrected)…. This essay will show you how that is possible.

Now I will not condemn anyone as ignorant if they say there IS a literal flesh and bone resurrection. You never know, the ways of God are beyond us all. But once again, I am not focused on the future which is not here or even real, I am focused on the here and now, which is all we have. And so is God…

However, regardless of whether you believe in a literal physical bodily resurrection from the literal grave there is still much that can be spiritually learned from this essay. And if you understand that the TOMB is mankind’s ignorant soul, that Christ (The power and wisdom of God) rises out of than, yes indeed this essay is for you as well.

Matthew 23:27
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited tombs, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.

So regardless of what your particular belief is you will benefit from this essay. Personally I am moving past the old teaching of resurrection unto perfection (the whole truth and wholeness of God) – This is my desire, to know the truth no matter what the cost. I pray it is the same for you.

Hebrews 6
1 Therefore LEAVING the principles of the doctrine of Christ, LET US GO UNTO PERFECTION; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD…

We do find clearly spelled out in scripture that FLESH can never inherit the Kingdom of God, so I question why so many believe there will be a physical flesh resurrection after literal death. With that being stated, if you’re still with me, we’re about to move on to some insight that I hope will open your eyes wide and get you saying, “Wow, I never saw that before!”… Then again you may not say that at all, but I ask only that you read with an open heart, and if you really want to know the truth I know you will one day KNOW the Truth/Word/Christ.

First of all, I am neither better or worse for stating there is no literal resurrection (the way it is taught in churches I mean). For, if there is a literal physical resurrection like something out of the movies than good, and if not, well then… good. I cannot prove either and neither can anyone of you. It all boils down to what we’ve been taught or what we have been allowed to see and believe. Seeing as I cannot prove there is not, and neither can anyone prove there is a literal flesh and bone resurrection I will instead make a strong statement of my faith using the scriptures. I will say that the RESURRECTION of CHRIST takes place WITHIN US and while many are CRAVING THE DEAD BODY OF JESUS to return again alive and well, I understand that Christ is resurrected in HIS BODY, but that HIS BODY IS ALL OF US. We are the hosts, the lord of Hosts is revealed in. Our life is Christ, Our life is hid in Christ. Christ IN US is the Hope of Glory, not Christ outside of us coming again in the future. Christ is not returning, for…

Hebrews 13:5
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I (CHRIST) will NEVER LEAVE YOU, nor forsake thee

Since, Christ (The power and wisdom of God) NEVER LEFT, that means it is still within us.

Colossians 1:27
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ INSIDE you, the hope of glory

Notice, this is a MYSTERY, scripture goes on to explain that it has been HIDDEN. After all it is the Glory of God to hide a thing!

Proverbs 25:2
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing

And Christ comes (which literally means REVEALED) in the Glory of God. In other words, the Truth of who we are in Christ is revealed in our understanding of this great mystery. WHICH believe it or not is the mystery of who we really are.

I believe it is more important for us to consider what this resurrection means in the here and now. What does any doctrine benefit me, if it is a future thing. Christ said, I am the resurrection and the life, he who believes in me, THOUGH HE WERE DEAD, will live! I hope you understand literal physical dead people cannot believe anything, because THEY ARE PHYSICALLY, LITERALLY DEAD… I hope you can see the allegorical DEATH Jesus was talking about is mankind’s ignorance, or being ruled by their carnal mind.!

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

It’s simple really, for many life is more like death than living at all. For many their days are filled with misery and no hope at all. When trouble comes they think the worst and believe “well that’s just my life”.

Everyone that is not LIFE that is DEATH. Life is understanding who you are, that all things (even the bad) work together for the good. LIFE is following the desires of your heart, loving others, and knowing love yourself. LIFE doesn’t mean you’ll always be happy, but it does mean you understand that there is a reason for all things and that all things are meant for our learning and our enlightenment.

So DEATH, in scripture is not explaining the literal physical decay of the body, where the LIGHT (Life force) of that body has fled and only a dead shell remains. NO! The Death scripture explains is very clear, it is being ignorant to the truth of God and who you are. But there is hope for those who are living a life of Death. The Dead will RISE as scripture promises. The way for this to happen is when you are enlightened to the TRUTH/WORD of GOD, and the Power and Wisdom of God (which is Christ) is active in your thinking and evident in your life. The Dead RISE, when the Ignorant to BELIEVE the TRUTH OF GOD and become spiritual minded.

Romans 8:6
For to be carnally minded is DEATH; but to be SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE and peace.

Now I understand, a lot of you are waiting for JESUS to return in his LITERAL BODY. To which I say, you need to fully understand just who JESUS CHRIST’S BODY IS. YES, Christ will be resurrected in His literal Body… which is ALL OF HUMANITY.

“Know you not that YOU ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST” 

Oh I know, some will say, “How can that be, there is only ONE JESUS… and that is not ALLEGORICAL but LITERAL.” I in no way am saying that there was no Jesus of Nazareth. Not at all. In fact without his example, and the gospels we would not be able to discern who we are. His life was a pattern of our life. he clearly said, if you do not take up the cross and follow in the same steps you are none of his. the scripture go so far as to say, AS JESUS IS SO ARE WE.

1 John 4:17
Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because AS HE IS SO ARE WE in this world.

Jesus said he is the Light of the World, and told his disciples WE TOO ARE THE LIGHTS of the World.

Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid

Now this many people aren’t ready to handle. But it doesn’t make it any less true.

1 John 3:2
Beloved, now are WE the SONS(offspring) of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM

At the moment it may not appear that we are who we are in Christ. But when THIS GREAT TRUTH, this GOSPEL is revealed to us, this LIFE IS RESURRECTED in us, then WE SHALL BE LIKE HIM. Because AS JESUS CHRIST IS SO ARE WE.

Pay attention to this next verse. Right now we are as sheep following a Shepherd, but look WHO WE BECOME when we enter into this understanding.

John 10
1Verily, 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. 2But he that entereth in by the door IS THE SHEPHERD of the sheep.

Now here is the reason that we must all come to the UNITY OF THE FAITH. Because in fact we are all ONE IN CHRIST.

Romans 12:5
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another

We are ALL ONE BODY! This is why a majority of scripture teaches to do unto others as you want done to yourself. In fact, when you hurt others you are indeed hurting yourself. When you love and lift up others you are loving and lifting yourself up. Notice how scripture states, Love others as you love YOURSELF.

Romans 13:9
YOU shall love your neighbour as YOURSELF.

The entire law rests on these two things, Loving God, Loving Others. And the others you love are to be loved as yourself, for you are ONE WITH THEM!

According to scripture God only has one SON (child of God) – ADAM & CHRIST, the 1st child and the last child. But ONLY ONE begotten SON of God.

Adam, which literally means MANKIND, is the first NATURE OF MAN (Ignorant) and the second ADAM (Mankind) is RISEN, ENLIGHTENED…. So even though you see many, many people, we, the MANY make up the ONE SON (CHILD OF GOD)

Romans 12:5
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.

Should the hand say to the foot, you’re not Christ. Should Bob say to Bertha, you’re not Christ? I think not… Although, not all have CHRIST RISEN (revealed) in them… HOWEVER, CHRIST is in all.

Meaning most are still DEAD IN ADAM (ignorant of who they are, which is of course God’s child) but when you BELIEVE THE TRUTH you will LIVE (Be resurrected in Christ, as Christ) — too much for some to comprehend, I understand. But think about it, we are given the NAME OF CHRIST, THE MIND OF CHRIST, AND WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST… who truly are we?

The instant we ate of that TREE OF KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL. The POWER AND WISDOM of God was buried underneath the lies of who began to believe ourself to be. Then we put God outside of us far away from us and we DIED (Became Ignorant).

Look, the Hope of Glory is not Christ outside of me returning soon. The Hope of Glory is CHRIST IN ME. It does not say the Hope of Glory is for Christ to resurrect in a separate literal flesh body outside of our own. In fact, before Jesus died he told everyone where he was going and where he, and we, would be.

John 14
1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

Now many will say THE FATHERS HOUSE is some place far away, a place called Heaven, where Jesus (the great carpenter that he is, will be building us a mansion of gold) — However, people the FATHERS HOUSE is not outside of us, in fact, WE ARE THE FATHERS HOUSE. The Temple of God – US!

Luke 19:46
Saying unto them, It is written, My house (the Temple) is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves.

This is an allegory. Jesus, had to go before his followers made him God himself. And today that is exactly what a majority of Christians have done. Made Jesus separate from us, and called him God, instead of seeing Jesus as a brother.

Romans 8:29
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

This false belief takes the focus of God and finding the truth of who we are in God. Jesus always put the focus on the Father, and he also said we would do greater things than he, “Greater things than these we shall do”, that as he is a Light in this world, we are the Lights of this world, that as John put it “As Christ is, so are we in this world”. Jesus understood that we were no different from him, he was just the First born among the DEAD (Ignorant), the First Born among many brethren… – which means people, we are all ONE IN GOD. Which was the very nature of Jesus’s prayer in the Gospel of John.

John 17:11
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

The prayer basically means, God let them understand that WE ARE THE SAME!

There is NO DIVISION in ONE. Meaning we are ALL ONE, all the SAME, all united. Think about how much better the world would be if we saw each other as a part of ourselves. If we knew what we did to them, we do to ourselves. This is a great mystery, because so many people are selfish and think they are separate from others, when in fact, as Jesus said, “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.” – Meaning what you do to others, will most surely be done to you, because we are all ONE.

In truth, Hosea puts the 3rd day resurrection wonderfully and it paints a clearer picture of how this truly speaks of all of us.

Hosea 6
1 Come, let US RETURN to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces but he will heal us; he has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. 2 After two days he will revive US; on the THIRD DAY he will restore US, that WE may live in his presence.

The resurrection spoken here is about restoring ALL OF US to the Power and Wisdom of God (Christ), after being stricken by the darkness of our vain imagination. It is all about RETURNING TO GOD (Truth).

But, I will answer, in a nutshell, why I am not worried, or concerned, that I do not hold onto a belief that “Literal Decaying Bodies or skeletons in the ground” will rise again in the judgment. And why I am only concerned with our RISING from the DEATH of our ignorance, as judgment begins at the house of the Lord. (ME and YOU). And if judgment begins IN US then that means God is going to destroy everything IN US that is not IN HIM (GOD/TRUTH/SPIRIT) until CHRIST is formed in us, as Paul said. Every false belief (portrayed as goats, tares, etc in scripture) will be destroyed, burned away (spiritually), when Christ is RESURRECTED IN US.

Galatians 4:19
My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you

Look at a very similar passage in Revelation.

Revelation 12:2
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

Just who do you think that WOMAN is… The WOMAN is our SOUL, who is going to deliver CHRIST. So the WORD will be RESURRECTED in our FLESH.

I spent a good deal of my life in carnal practices and principles. There was a time that I believed I had to baptize my son thanks to Catholic guilt. But I wised up and did not do the same for my daughter Shiloh, who according to the Catholic church is damned until she does so. Ah, the foolishness of vain traditions built on fear and shame.

Carnal mankind has made a god in their image. A god they can control. A god they can give birth to every year, persecute and crucify every year, and raise again every year. This is what many are celebrating today. The resurrection of Jesus, which takes all of the focus off the TRUE RESURRECTION that is to take place within us all. They look OUTSIDE OF THEMSELVES and WAIT. When God looks WITHIN and MADE CLEAR through Jesus RESURRECTION IS IN THE HERE AND NOW! So please tell me why everyone is looking to the sky and waiting and not wanting the kingdom to come (be revealed) on earth (in our waking life) as in heaven (the true spirit life/God’s ways and wisdom)

Ephesians 3:10
To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God

But now, I am moving unto perfection and I challenge you all to at least question and possibly do the same. Even though I understand “Each Man in His Order”.

Look, like Paul, there was a time that I, too, knew Jesus after the FLESH (My carnal mind) but No longer. Now I find it hard to know anyone, or anything, after the Flesh. In fact, if you’ve read my articles enough times it should be pretty clear I’m all about the “spirit” of a thing. I look for the “spirit” of what the scriptures teach, and I leave the literal (letter) because it doesn’t profit me, or anyone, at all.

In the discussion I mentioned earlier a new friend raised an important point. “What about those that witnessed Jesus placed in the Tomb, and witnessed his disappearance and ascension, etc.”

This point is the genesis of this essay and deals specifically with what was “quickened” to me about this event. Quick note of that, look again at what I wrote, “what was QUICKENED to me”. You when reading this had no problem understanding I meant, what was revealed to me, what was made clear to me. Yet, there are many people who will say a “Quickening” spirit is a spirit that will re-animated a literally physically dead body. As opposed to understanding it is all about QUICKENING (giving understanding and wisdom which is a tree of life to one who had previously been ignorant.)

1 Corinthians 15
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. 46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

Our first nature is all about our five senses, it’s all about the temporal, sensual world. The first man, in other words, is NATURAL. (Get it?) Our second nature (after the truth has been RISEN within us) was made a quickening spirit. In other words, we don’t look to the nature, literal letter of things, we see to the SPIRIT of things. We don’t say the parable is literal, we say, “this is what the parable is teaching us.”

But I digress, I am going to attempt to show you that the events after Jesus’ death, where Joseph and Nicodemus begged for the dead body of Jesus from Pilate and buried him is ACTUALLY a picture of carnal Christians who CRAVE that DEAD JESUS (who they continue to worship today as a Dead Man from two thousand years ago). You find an image of that Dead Man hanging from crosses in Churches, in paintings, in movies, on tv, on tee-shirts, jewelry, etc… And then many go so far as to say that Dead Man Jesus is God. Knowing full well, Jesus never taught this, and that the scriptures are pretty clear we are not to place an image to what God looks like at all. He shouldn’t be likened to anything in the sea, in the air, in the earth, beneath the earth, and most definitely not in the IMAGE OF CORRUPTIBLE NATURAL MAN!

Romans 1:23
And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man

You see God is not Man, God is the SPIRIT WITHIN MAN! God was IN JESUS, God is in CHRIST reconciling the world to himself.

2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was IN Christ, reconciling the world unto himself

You see, most today ignorantly worship a Dead Flesh Man from 2000 years ago, as opposed to worshipping the LIFE GIVING SPIRIT that is the SON OF GOD, which is the WORD OF GOD, which is the LIGHT OF ALL MANKIND, which we ALL HAVE OUR LIFE HID IN (Christ). This WORD is what LIVES and is RESURRECTS WITHIN US and BECOMES US and we BECOME HIM.

John 17:22
And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one

This is like me praying, God please let them understand what I understand that we are one, so that they can understand that they are one, that we are all ONE! You in me, I in them, etc, etc. ONE! Please tell me how this leaves room for a resurrection outside of us, separate from us?

No, Christ is FORMED/BIRTHED in us. Christ is revealed in us! Christ is resurrected IN US!

“Until Christ be formed IN you.”

But the many that call themselves Christians today, are just like Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus. They don’t want CHRIST resurrected WITHIN THEM! They want the DEAD JESUS MAN. And so they take this belief and tuck it away in their Tomb (hearts/soul/ignorant understanding) and of course when people come looking for the WAY, TRUTH, AND LIFE it is nowhere to be found. Because you can’t find the LIVING (enlightened) among the DEAD (carnal/ignorant).

 John 19
38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus. 39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pound weight.  40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.

Here we see the picture of two men, Joseph and Nicodemus. Let’s first look at Joseph of Arimathaea.

JOSEPH OF ARIMATHAEA

1) Joseph was a disciple in SECRET – He was ashamed of knowing the living Jesus. — And we know how that goes over with Christ.

“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed”

2) Joseph was STILL WAITING for the Kingdom of God to come.

“He was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself WAITED for the kingdom of God.” Luke 23

I guess Joseph missed Jesus’ lesson that the KINGDOM of GOD is here now and WITHIN. Perhaps that is why he was still waiting.

Now onto Nicodemus.

NICODEMUS

1) Nicodemus was also ashamed of the TRUTH (Jesus) this is why he came to Jesus at NIGHT. A symbol of seeing Jesus in the DARK (carnally)

“There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  The same came to Jesus by NIGHT” John 3

2) Nicodemus was ignorant of the truth, much like Joseph of A.

Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?  

Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?

Both Joseph and Nicodemus were ignorant and ashamed of Christ. But BOTH CRAVED THAT DEAD BODY of JESUS. Isn’t this what so many so-called Christians are doing today. Aren’t they waiting for that Dead Jesus to return. Isn’t that REALLY what the Easter celebration is all about. One day every year getting together to celebrate something that happened in the past (whether literal or allegorical) it is obvious this was something that happened in the past. And Mankind re-peat the past again and again. Yet, we are clearly instructed to FORGET ABOUT THE PAST and MOVE UNTO PERFECTION.

Philippians 3:13
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are BEHIND, and reaching forth unto those things which are before

Paul said, he FORGOT what happened in the past and reached for what was to come. Why do most people today continue to live in the past. Why does mankind continue to look back and wait for the future, instead of looking within in the here and now? The reason is, “they know not what they do.”

So in their ignorance, ignorant mankind does what Joseph of A and Nicodemus did. They dress up dead Jesus, by wearing dead Jesus jewelry, talking about how Jesus died, acting it out and getting everyone to put their faith in past events instead of NOW. It’s a faith based on Death (THAT WHICH NO LONGER EXISTS/LIVES). Yes, carnal/ignorant mankind also CRAVES THE DEAD BODY OF JESUS…

They just can’t wrap their minds around the truth of the resurrection which is unto LIFE IN THEM. But the DEATH of someone in the past, and that dead man’s resurrection they say is literally true. And so instead of reaching for Christ within, they keep looking behind and say he is coming again.

Like many today, Joseph, and Nicodemus, didn’t have a clue about the things of God. If they did, they probably would not have been so concerned about “preserving” and “storing” the DEAD BODY of Jesus after following a bunch of vain religious burial rites and traditions. However, many today elevate these men as faithful disciples. They talk about how AWESOME NICK AT NIGHT AND JOSEPH A are, for taking that Dead Body of Jesus and parading it around, wrapping it all nice with sugar and spice and burying that dead body away in their new tomb. But people, they didn’t know the first thing about the truth. They wouldn’t be seen in public with the LIVING CHRIST, but the DEAD JESUS they were all about. That should say something.

Just like I will say, look we are all ONE WITH CHRIST, CHRIST’S LIFE IS OUR LIFE, CHRIST IS YOU AND I when that Daystar is risen in our heart(understanding)… people don’t want to have a part of this LIFE! No, they only want the version where Jesus is dead and gone and coming again. Just like Nick at Night and Joseph A.

These two ignorant men followed the ritual LAW for burial. Something that they would NOT DO had they the slightest understanding of CHRIST WITHIN. In Fact, I don’t think they would have paid much attention to the Dead Flesh Body of Jesus at all, if they knew the truth.

But, Joseph and Nicodemus are like many today that focus on the OUTWARD MAN which perishes, and ignore of the inward man, that is renewed. They worship the Creature, as opposed to the CREATOR. Which NO MAN can literally see!

“No one has seen the Father at any time” “God is spirit and truth”

Now a side note about what Jesus said we will be like in the Resurrection, for those who are waiting for us to rise again as immortal flesh bodies that we have right now.

29Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do ERR, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. 30 For in the RESURRECTION they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are AS THE MESSENGERS of God in heaven.”

In the Resurrection we are AS THE ANGELS (MESSENGERS OF GOD’S TRUTH), not as we are now (SELFISH CARNAL SOULS)… When we are RESURRECTED we are as God’s messengers, as Sons and Daughters of the most high! (United in God’s spirit) 

So, now that we have a clearer picture of Joseph and Nicodemus. We see that they were two ignorant, howbeit well-meaning, good men, who CRAVED the LITERAL DEAD BODY of Jesus, and then followed the DEAD LAW and BURIED their DEAD JESUS in a TOMB for the DEAD.

Had they paid attention in the “Living” Jesus school, they would not have done such a thing.

Matthew 8:22
But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

Joseph and Nicodemus must have missed that day. Since they were BURYING DEAD JESUS. And as I mentioned earlier many today are the same. On Easter many are acting out the death and resurrection of that man who died two thousand years ago, never once understanding that Christ and they are in fact one.

There are carnal people who will wrap, bury, and protect that DEAD JESUS, they crave that DEAD BODY (The flesh man) and yet, they will NEVER admit that CHRIST Resurrects IN THEM. Like Nicodemus and Joseph they are ashamed of the LIVING CHRIST. Because this wisdom has not yet been quickened to them. But one day it will, each man in his order. They see themselves separate from Christ, not realizing it is impossible to be separate from Christ, as everything has its existence in the Power and Wisdom of God’s Holy Spirit.

Romans 8:39
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Look we can NEVER be separate from CHRIST (which is God’s word/truth/wisdom/spirit/son). We can only be DEAD (ignorant) to the TRUTH of that.

Now, I want to tell all of you what and who CHRIST is. We know many say, it means annointed ONE. But really, what does CHRIST MEAN, and what does CHRIST DO, and why Christ? Well check out what scripture says, Christ is made to become for us!

1 Corinthians 1:30
But OF him are YOU -IN- Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

Re-read that people. The WORD OF GOD is TRUTH, a LAMP to our FEET, LIFE. And Christ is MADE to become for us, WISDOM, RIGHTEOUSNESS, SANCTIFICATION, AND REDEMPTION. Christ is TRUE LIFE. And we are OF HIM meaning our very essence is GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT revealed in CHRIST. But no one seems to want this, they want and crave that DEAD BODY OF JESUS.

The Natural man cares only about Natural things. So it makes sense that so many are waiting for a literal natural appearance of Jesus Christ. But the Spiritual Man, which is our SECOND NATURE, knows nothing naturally, waits for nothing, and looks for nothing, for everything is WITHIN!

2 Peter 1:19
We have also a more SURE WORD of prophecy; whereunto YOU DO WELL THAT YOU LISTEN, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the DAY STAR ARISE IN YOUR HEART.

Notice, it doesn’t say, the DAYSTAR coming again from a far off distant place. This SURE WORD OF PROPHECY speaks ONLY OF Christ RISING IN YOUR HEART to become Wisdom, understanding, righteousness, redemption, sanctification. CHRIST ONLY RESURRECTS IN YOU PEOPLE!

Few will believe Peter’s “SURE WORD” of prophesy. Because they have been taught since they were children, the same error they continue to teach today to their children. And if you dare say a word otherwise, you will be threatened, attacked, torn down, because the Darkness (Ignorant) hate the Light. (Truth)

“Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city:”

“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.”

It’s all about the OUTSIDE with those stuck in Adam (The natural carnal man). They worship the Flesh, which is why they condemn and attack, as these are fruits of Carnality. To the carnal religious it’s all about the Flesh. They are right in their own carnality and pride and the rest who believe differently (In “their” eyes will burn for all of eternity)

Now, does that sound like they worship a God of Love? A God, who teaches humility, long-suffering, patience? A Teacher is to be apt in these areas, not quick to judge and condemn. Christ did NOT come (rise/revealed) into the world to CONDEMN it but to SAVE it. And when Christ RISES in each of us, we too will be saved! Saved from our own ignorance, not some future torture.

Today on Easter, many may dress up their DEAD BELIEFS and do all they can to make their false beliefs look, and smell good. They want to “PRESERVE” their error and hold unto it forever. No matter how you slice it, the Jesus they are working so hard to “PRESERVE” is DEAD. Then, like the ignorant and ashamed Joseph and Nicodemus, MANY want to make sure their TOMB is sealed so they can KEEP THAT DEAD JESUS safe, so no one will take what they now own away. And they do this by ROLLING A GREAT STONE in front of the TOMB.

And what does this stone represent? Their works, beliefs and laws!

Consider, how the STONE needs to be rolled away to water he sheep. The STONE needs to be thrown to kill the Giant. The STONE is used to KILL and PUNISH. The STONES are what the LAW is written on to begin with. Joseph, and Nicodemus are pictures of those who worship a DEAD JESUS and keep that DEAD JESUS tucked away and covered by their works of the law, which is all death.

How do I know this? Well, what did the ANGEL say when everyone was looking in a TOMB (Carnal soul) for the RISEN CHRIST? Mind you they were NOT looking for the dead Christ at this point but the RISEN CHRIST and they could not find Christ there… and what did the ANGEL SAY?

“Why seek you the living among the dead?”

You cannot FIND THE TRUTH in DEAD BELIEFS or CARNAL UNDERSTANDING. You will NEVER find the TRUTH if you continue to look for DEAD FLESH to be raised. No matter how many Easter services you attend.

The good news is even this GREAT STONE (works, carnal beliefs, laws and traditions) will be rolled away when the TRUTH descends from a higher place of understanding and is revealed to us. And it will shake our beliefs and traditions to the very core, breaking apart every foundational belief we once put our faith in.

Matthew 28:
2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

And when that day comes, we will know Christ as we are known by Christ!

1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

News flash people, when you know as you are known, YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE SELF!

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