FISHERS OF MEN

FISHERS OF MEN

Mark 1:17-18
17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18 And STRAIGHTWAY THEY FORSOOK THEIR NETS, and followed him.

In the gospels there is a wonderful story about how Jesus found men toiling under the sun trying to catch fish, but only catching some, with their nets.

Many have taken the story to mean that Jesus came over and told them that they should give up on their careers, follow him and spread the gospel instead. But this my friends is not only what this story means. In fact, what the revelation of this story could mean for your life is quite profound.

You see, not everything that you read about in Scripture is as it seems. There’s a hidden treasure that when revealed can change the very lives of those who read the stories to begin with.

For those of you new to “Jacob’s Ladder” you will find much of what I write here deals with the hidden mystery of scripture. For it is the SPIRIT of the scriptures that give life (enlightenment) to the reader. As the apostle Paul wrote, “the letter/literal kills”. The MEANING/SPIRIT of the story teaches a person something, while focusing on the literal aspects of the story (which were never meant to be taken that way) kills the very LIFE/ENLIGHTENMENT found within the revelation of what that story means.

So much of what we read in the scriptures are an allegory. Which is why Jesus said clearly to his disciples in the gospels, “it is given to you to know the MYSTERIES of the Kingdom of God and unto them who do not have this insight ALL THINGS are shared in PARABLE”.

Now does this all mean that there were not literal events that happened that we read about? Well, that is not really the point is it? What REALLY matters is what a person gains from the story. I often use the parable of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” to illustrate this point. It does not matter whether there was a boy or a wolf, what matters is the SPIRIT of this story, which is of course that one should not lie or exaggerate.

The same is true for the events surrounding these “Fishermen”. It does not matter whether there were literal fisherman or literal nets, what REALLY matters is WHAT THE STORY MEANS FOR US. What TRUTH is hidden within these verses. What is it that “GOD” is trying to say hidden within the context of these stories? That is what matters!

After all…


It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. (Proverbs 25:2 KJV)

The TRUTH is hidden within these stories and it is our great honor to find these treasures for ourselves. The revelation of which, comes only when one looks beyond the literal story until the spirit of the story clicks within and is revealed. When this happens it is like the “lights go on” and one finally understands the depth, and freedom, of the revelation that was once hidden within what seemed to be a pretty cut and dry story or a man telling a bunch of other men to follow him.

Now when this revelation hits it is like a LIGHT finally shining in a dark place allowing an individual to finally move about with the confidence, and wisdom, of where they should go next.

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:19-21 KJV)

Now I do want to point out that the truth can’t be forced. It must come from deep within, it must be revealed. And when the TRUTH is revealed it is like being healed of blindness spiritually. The TRUTH gives SIGHT to the blind, EARS to the deaf, strength to the lame, a tongue to the mute, brings to life what has been dead/ignorant, casts out the lies/demons that possess men and women, and much, much more.

We see this happening time and time again with every “miracle” Jesus performed. It DOES not matter whether they were literally healed or not, what mattered is that they HEARD THE TRUTH and UNDERSTOOD THE TRUTH.

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 it is the TRUE MEANING of this story that I wish to share today…

What does it really mean? Why did these men leave their chosen profession and forsake their nets? Are their nets symbolic of something else? Are the Fish A METAPHOR for more?

The answer to all of these questions is YES, YES, AND AMEN!

For years we have taken this story to mean that men and women everywhere should leave everything BEHIND to go out and preach the “message” their particular church says people must adhere to. Basically, bad religion has given people the idea that they should give up on all of their responsibilities to further religion’s agenda/message. Because “saving souls is more important than time with your family, friends, interests, or current employment.” The irony found when Jesus tells the bad religious elite… 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. (Matthew 23:15 KJV)

Bad Religion takes scriptures and twist them. Scriptures like Luke 18:29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, 30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting. … Bad Religion has used these scriptures to manipulate people into focusing on serving bad religion and bad religion alone regardless of how many families or lives are torn apart in the process.

And the ignorant fish in the sea take the bait and believe these passages are literal… but as Paul states, “These things are allegory!”

Sadly, people today have taken these things literally and have used even these scriptures to justify not living up to the responsibilities of being a parent or spouse. A great example of how the LETTER/LITERAL kills.

The tricks, snares and nets of religion can convince people that they would be rewarded for such nonsense like leaving jobs, homes, family and friends behind to serve Bad Religion’s version of the Kingdom of God. Which they present as some FUTURE award… when the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AND GOD has always been and NOW EVENT.

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

The salvation of our souls is finding this RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY within us. This is HEAVEN ABOVE. A higher form of thinking. RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY are not found in selfish ambition, but by LOVE! If truth be told this HEAVEN that Bad Religion is selling today does not exist!

BEHOLD THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS WITHIN YOU. The POWER AND WISDOM OF GOD (Christ) saves us from the lies/nets bad religion has cast upon us to control us.

In Isaiah is the best example of what HEAVEN, and what EARTH, is…

Isaiah 55:9
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

HEAVEN = God’s Thoughts/TRUTH = PEACE
Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

EARTH = Man’s ignorant/carnal thoughts

God has thoughts of peace, power, and a sound mind. God does not give us the SPIRIT OF FEAR, yet man’s ways are below God’s ways… And one of the greatest NETS Bad Religion has used for far too long is FEAR. “Do this or that OR ELSE!” But the TRUTH delivers us from these nets, as Jesus delivered these men from their nets.

It is the TRUTH that sets a person free. No NET is needed to DRAG anyone to the truth. It’s YOKE is easy, it is not the NET/YOKE OF RELIGION which is a heavy burden. Jesus said, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest Matthew 11:28 and again when Jesus said… For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:30

THESE NETS THE FISHERMEN WERE USING BECOME THE YOKES AND BURDENS we all suffer with today. Which is why we are told to… Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14

There was no joy, peace, and righteousness/right-thinking found in casting net after net into the sea of ignorance we call this world for these men. This is the reason that when the TRUTH (Jesus) appeared to them they were ready to FORSAKE their nets once again for all and become fishers of men!

So it becomes clear, the story of the fishermen leaving their nets behind to follow JESUS is a symbol of so much more. Every piece of this story is rich in meaning and hope. These NETS have more to do with the lies of religion and this world than literally catching fish as you will soon see.

As Micah recalls…

Micah 7:2
The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright/honest among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a NET.

You will soon see these NETS are everywhere today, and they mean one thing for those caught and that is DEATH/SUFFERING. While the captors can enjoy the spoils of the catch (their money and devotion).

You see these FISH HAVE GOLD INSIDE! Controlling people means more than just devotion and blind faith, it means their wealth is your wealth. BAD RELIGION knew this and JESUS KNEW THIS.

Jesus proved this point when the religious leaders demanded temple tax and he told his disciple to catch a fish (which you will soon see is an ignorant person) and take the gold from its mouth.

Matthew 17:27
Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.

BAD RELIGION wants that money, and to get it you had to HOOK or SNARE one of the ignorant fish/people in the sea to do so.

Let’s talk about some of those NETS
1) Net of FEAR- HELL, DAMNATION
2) Net of PRIDE – you are better than others
3) Net of Prosperity – You will be healthy and wealthy
4) Net of Power – You can become a super human
5) Net of future reward – You go to Heaven and it is all worth it
6) Net of Family or Friend pressure – If you aren’t like the bad religious you can’t be with them
7) Net of miracle healing
8) Net of prophetic words – people telling you they have heard from God directly

The list goes on and on… and they are ALWAYS CASTING THAT NET OUT ON THE WRONG SIDE

It’s all about money and power for the Bad Religious, and those NETS had to constantly be mended, because they were easily broken. Which is why in each encounter in the Gospels we see the fishermen either using their nets or tending to their nets. These NETS were important to their financial well-being. Yet, immediately following their encounter with this man Jesus they all left their nets. Mind you, they did not just leave their nets, they FORSOOK them.

Now why is this important? You may ask.

Well, these NETS by now you should see offer nothing in return but DEATH for fish. The NETS these fishermen were used to make their living is still practiced today, until the TRUTH shows up and shows them a better way.

Jesus came along and showed them THAT better way… the WAY… THE TRUTH… and LIFE! Jesus promised to make them fishers of men instead.

The difference being what Jesus offered did not mean death for these “fish/ignorant people” it meant life. And this LIFE was something that bad religion and politics has stolen away from them all.

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10 KJV)

So you see, those who have gotten the masses on their bad religious hooks, and caught the unaware in their bad religious nets only came to steal from those they catch and in return kill their true hope and peace.

Ecclesiastes 9:12
For MAN also knoweth not his time: as the FISHES that are taken in an evil NET, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.

These thieves continue on this day using their lies and promises and fear to keep the ignorant FISH buying into their religious and political lies. These thieves who say as long as their FISH do as they say, give, obey, serve, make followers and don’t question, promise that when the FISH are finally in the grave they will finally enter the gates of heaven.

But these thieves that call themselves religious leaders offer nothing but the death of a fulfilled life. No one, and I repeat no one can enter into the kingdom of heaven under their rule. Mainly because they have twisted everything we read about in scripture into something else. They have created a fantastic narrative that only offers them the power and wealth they crave.

These thieves make false promises and put on grand shows tickling the ears of those who hear and like a net dragged in the sea anyone they catch finds nothing but promises that are never kept, pride, bigotry, intolerance, greed and much worse. One can never find Righteousness (right thinking) Peace, Joy and Power in corrupt thinking. And anyone who tries to enter into the kingdom any other way but through Loves gate and denying one’s self, the same becomes a thief and robber as well, who too will find themselves dragging the allegorical net trying to kill more in the name of a god bad religion made up.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:1, 10 KJV)

But Jesus showed them a better way. He revealed the truth to them and he did so using the bait of love and a more abundant life.

So right away they left their nets and followed him. They followed him not for worldly gain but for that peace that surpassed their current understanding.

I would like to state that they did not just leave their NETS behind to follow Jesus, they FORSOOK their nets!

That is quiet an interesting word used to describe them leaving their nets behind, if that is all we are meant to take from it. Let us look at what the word “Forsook” means.

Forsook in Greek – Aphiemi
Literal meaning: “to abandon, leave desolate SO ONE CAN GO FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER.”

This word, “forsook” offers us insight into the deeper meaning of the disciples leaving their nets to become “fishers of men”.

To get to the place of wisdom, to return to their first estate, to move from their current understanding to where they truly wanted to go they had to leave the LIES OF BAD RELIGION behind.

The apostle Paul spoke about this very thing, when he considered all he had learned from religion, all he had done in the name of religion, he called DUNG! Paul knew the snares and nets of bad religion as well as anyone. Paul and well as David knew how deadly these NETs could be. He knew a NET of LIES cast unto the ignorant fish of the world, meant death and hell (ignorant suffering)for the people.

Psalm 35:7,8
For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul. Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.

The “FISH” by now, you should understand are symbols of the ignorance holding MEN AND WOMEN EVERYWHERE captive. It is their carnal ignorance.

Jesus compared ignorant men and women to FISH, when promising to make his new recruits “Fishers of Men”.

Jonah was swallowed by a GREAT FISH, and resided in the FISH’S BELLY for three days much like Jesus did in the belly of the EARTH. Here we see a connection that must be made. The first obvious connection is that the belly of the fish is also a symbol for the belly of the earth, which we also now know from earlier, is also a symbol of MAN’S CARNAL WAYS AND THOUGHTS. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are Gods ways higher than man’s, God’s thoughts higher than man’s thoughts.”

Jonah is an allegory of the SPIRIT MAN trapped within the IGNORANCE OF THE CARNAL MAN (fish). Look also what the BELLY OF THE FISH is called by JONAH… HELL!

Jonah 2:1-3
2 Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish’s belly,
2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of HELL cried I, and thou heardest my voice.

In this verse we see the Fish’s Belly also called the belly of HELL. We know that HELL is the word used to describe the suffering that accompanies ignorance. The FISH are those that are ignorant and lost to the ways of this world (lust of eyes, flesh, pride of life).

We also find that Jesus was found in the belly of the EARTH.

Matthew 12:40
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the fish’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

We are also told that when Jesus died he entered HELL (Ignorant suffering) to set the captives free in 1st Peter 3.

THE BELLY is also a punishment for the SERPENT (carnal ego man) who goes about on his belly digesting only dust/lies. The BELLY is a great symbol for the “womb of the carnal mind”. The BELLY of the FISH is a person’s carnal lust and ego. This is why we see the lying serpent cursed to go about on his belly.

Genesis 3:14
And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

THE BELLY is a symbol for the “womb of ignorance and carnal thinking” indeed as Job puts it… Job 15:35
They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their BELLY PREPARES DECEIT.

But just as JONAH was freed from his ignorant hell, just as Jesus was freed from the sins of the world that cast him into the depths of the earth/hell/grave, just as these fishermen were delivered from their miserable lives, so also are we when we stop trying to rule over others, make money from others, or get others to do what we want them to do. The instant we forsake the NETS of our past and become fishers of men ourselves by sharing the truth without wanting anything in return, then the heavens open up and we find the rest Jesus promised.

There are those who kill their FISH – The bad religious do this. There are those who fish men out of their ignorant despair and offer them life and hope.

When Jesus asked them to follow him he was leading them to the kingdom of heaven, and I pray we can do the same for others! Which are we? Fisher of Men or Killers of Fish?

John 10:10
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

IT’S TIME FOR THE FISH TO COME OUT OF THE WATER! IT’S TIME TO HELP OTHERS WALK UPON THE WATERS INSTEAD OF DROWING IN THEM… ONCE WE PULL THESE FISH OUT OF THEIR IGNORANCE, THE HEAVENS WILL OPEN UP AND THEY TOO WILL KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF.

Matthew 3:16
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

It’s time for Bad Religion to forsake their nets, let’s help them all become fishers of men by showing LOVE!

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 DEATH OF RELIGION


THE DEATH OF RELIGION

Samuel said to Saul, “You’ve done foolishly… Now YOUR kingdom shall NOT continue. The Lord is looking for those after his own heart!”

If this above passage doesn’t speak volumes to you about the state of religion today then you must revist this story again. Saul’s Kingdom was in the wilderness, David’s Kingdom was established in the land of promise. Saul was consumed with pride, tormented, no longer cared for God’s timing or ways. Saul could not kill the GIANT carnal nature within him, because his man made armor did not fit. Instead of recognizing the new day and the way of love and faith, Saul sought to kill the “beloved of God/David”. David (Those beloved of God) would not take the Kingdom by force, but waited on God. In the end Saul would perish, as would those who stood with him. David would assume the crown of Righteousness. This is the day we are in. The Death of Religious abuse and persecution is at it’s end. And we, Like David, will dance into the land of promise naked (free from the religius beliefs that hid our true nature from sight)

This is a wake up call for all of us. We must ask God “teach me the truth no matter what the cost.” Because LOVE, ACCEPTANCE, PEACE, AND SHARING is what will bring the greatest riches to mankind. I pray this speaks directly to those who need to hear it.

ROAD TO EMMAUS



THE ROAD TO EMMAUS

Yesterday while driving, as my custom is, I turned on Christian Radio to listen to the preachers there. Now, I do not do this to hear their interpretation, but over the years I’ve learned God can reveal things to you through even the most lost and confused in the world. God spoke through an Ass, He spoke through a Bush, God can speak, and does speak often if only we have ears to hear.

Mainly I listen to Christian radio because now and then a Pastor or Priest will quote scripture. Often times when a scripture is heard, a LIGHT (Christ) goes off inside me and shows me just what that scripture means. It finally makes sense, like I remembered what I had long forgotten. And that is exactly what happened to me yesterday.

It has to do with the ROAD TO EMMAUS, and I am going to share that with you(God Willing and Leading hopefully) to help open the eyes of those who also are on their way to the VILLAGE of EMMAUS…

In the Greek, the word “VILLAGE” translates (to the common SLEEPING place to which laborers in the field return) – Why is this important you ask? Well, because their “Savior” had been crucified before them, they knew Jesus after the Flesh and were waiting for him to Return (AFTER THE FLESH). And after three long days, the TWO on this road found NOTHING… So they were GIVING UP… They were going to a place of SLEEP (becoming unconscious of the Truth/ignorant)

Now people this is exactly where most are today. Walking down that road to EMMAUS which translates to “AN UNCERTAIN PLACE” … Most don’t know where they are going, they have lost hope and simply want to go to sleep and forget it all… “WHERE IS THE PROMISE OF HIS COMING” they ask?

So many Christians are waiting for Jesus to return to make everything right. So many Christians are waiting to be Raptured and whisked away so they can finally be free. SO MANY CHRISTIANS are lost, they are like the son in my below poem.

The Son waits outside for his Father to return. He looks for Him high and low. He says he will come soon, this he knows. However, the Son is scared and alone. He thinks his Father will come from the east or west. In the sky on a plane, riding a white horse is the belief he likes the best. Nevertheless, the longer he waits, the longer he is sad, lost and alone. If only the Son knew his Father never left and was waiting for him within, If only the Son knew that he was never alone to begin. Then the Son would enter happily in and would know fear, pain, and suffering never again.

It breaks my heart when people write me and ask me “Are you saved?”. It tears me up when they claim Christ and I see how they behave.

So I continue to seek and I continue to pray God will allow me to find. As I always say in my papers, I never claim to have answers, I can never say for sure if these words be true that I write, God knows. The reason I give this disclaimer is because the charge is YOURS. God’s ways are above Man’s, and we should NEVER take the word of a man. So whatever I write here, know that I am simply a man who desires with all my heart to know the things of God, and whether these things be true or not, that is for the Lord of Hosts (we are the Host) to decide and reveal to you. (Of course in my heart, I believe them to be absolutely true… but this is what you MUST find for yourself, or it will FIND YOU 🙂 )

Good now that I have my weekly disclaimer out-of-the-way we can begin.

As I was saying, I see many today, as those TWO (double minded) men walking on the Road to Emmaus… They are headed toward a place where they can SLEEP not a place where they can WAKE. And they don’t know where they are going. But then something happens. Out of nowhere, a Messenger appears, and everything changes for these poor, sad, hopeless fools (the fool in his heart says there is no God)

However, before I begin this essay I want to touch on something that lately I can’t seem to get away from. It has to do with the way things are today. The way they are in religions around the world, those with, or without faith, those who have not “tasted of that heavenly fruit”, those who are yet still in their SIN (Foolish thinking/ignorance)

About two weeks ago, I kept opening the scriptures to Daniel the second chapter.

DANIEL 2

1And in the second year of the reign of Nebuchadnezzar dreamed dreams, wherewith his spirit was troubled, and his sleep brake from him.

Let me first point out what the name “Nebuchadnezzar” means, as it will open your eyes to the great parable this story has hidden.

“Nebuchadnezzar” means “may Nebu protect” – Now Nebu is the god of Man’s Lofty Prideful Intelligence, Nebu was a god worshipped back in the day. So truly, the KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR means “Man is RULED by The wisdom of Men, the prideful lofty intelligence, that they believe will PROTECT THEM” = May Nebu Protect.

News flash “Church” good old Nebuchadnezzar has been ruling a long time, but all of that is about to change.

So he has this troubling dream, and no sorcerer, magician, prophet, etc… can tell him this dream and it’s interpretation, so he KILLS THEM ALL!

2Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams. So they came and stood before the king. … 5The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if ye will not make known unto me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, ye shall be cut in pieces, and your houses shall be made a dunghill.

You see, there will come a TIME in EVERY MAN’S life when the Vision of God will visit them. And their MAN MADE WISDOM will fail them, they won’t understand what God is saying to them. So like King Neb. they will turn to those they once put their faith in. But in those place, the sorcerers, magicians, preachers, priests, friends, imams, etc, they won’t find answers… FOR THERE IS NO TRUTH IN BABYLON PEOPLE!

So like King Neb. these people will do what he did symbolically. They will understand these Religious teaching NEED TO BE DESTROYED and are FIT FOR THE DUNG HILL (That’s a big old pile of poop everyone!)

Then comes along Daniel, little Daniel.

26The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?

May I point out HOW AWESOME Daniel’s real name is, in HEBREW… Belteshazzar means “Lord of the straitened’s treasure”

Daniel, was one who could MAKE STRAIGHT where only the CROOKED has been. Daniel came to inform King Neb. that God was about to make everything right again!

Now this is what struck me so. I finally understood the vision of King Neb. Daniel says, this statue he saw represents five different kingdoms that will rise and fall.

Now don’t go listening to those who say these are literal kingdom, like the US, CHINA, RUSSIA etc… God doesn’t deal in literal, as Daniel said…

22He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

These are SPIRITUAL KINGDOMS, strongholds, Principalities, that we wrestle against. And it was the last Kingdom in particular that drew my interest and sent shivers up my neck.

Take a look at King Neb.’s dream.

32This image’s head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, 33His legs of iron, his FEET PART IRON and CLAY. 34Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his FEET that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

Daniel, goes unto say, that each represents a Kingdom. Now I am not going to interpret each and every Kingdom for you, but it is the LAST KINGDOM that you need to pay attention to. Because this LAST KINGDOM IS ABOUT TO FALL RIGHT AROUND YOU!

FEET are so SYMBOLIC HERE. Notice what FEET are called in scripture.

Romans 10:15
… as it is written, How beautiful are the FEET of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Ephesians 6:15
And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
The FEET is the WITNESS of God.

This is why JESUS (truth revealed in man) WASHED their FEET. (Their witness and understanding of Truth was dirty, corrupt)

We even see scriptures that speak of those whose FEET are quick to do evil. Which represents most Religious leaders today.

THIS IS THE KINGDOM MIXED WITH IRON AND CLAY!

41And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

THE FEET, King Neb. saw in his dream was DIVIDED. Partly strong, partly brittle. Iron and Clay.

What does IRON represent you ask?

Psalm 107:10
Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

Ignorant CORRECTION/PUNISHMENT…

And what does CLAY represent?

Psalm 40:2
He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry CLAY, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.

CLAY is the very ignorance of HELL that is being preached today as truth. Iron is the very cruel ignorant punishment and judgment that is being used to bind and break the spirits of those who NEED GOD MORE THAN EVER.

THIS IS THE FIFTH and FINAL KINGDOM in this world. RELIGION.

The FEET = Those that bring a perverse message of lies and condemnation is the last Kingdom. And then I say GOD DESTROYING IT as Daniel did.

44And in the days of these kings shall the GOD OF HEAVEN SET UP A KINGDOM, WHICH SHALL NEVER BE DESTROYED: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

This is the TRUE MESSAGE that you MAY BE HEARING today. Our God of LOVE is tearing the MOTHER of ALL HARLOTS down. This is why we are told to FLEE from Babylon, because what is about to happen to the RELIGIONS of the world is COMING TO A CHURCH/ TEMPLE/ MOSQUE/ KINGDOM HALL/ MEETING HOUSE near you!

45Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

THE STONE is the TRUTH (CHRIST) which is WITHIN US ALL!

A remnant are standing up now, declaring this truth. THIS IS THE ARMY JOEL SPOKE OF. This is what my Novel, THE CALLING is all about. I just never knew, I would see the day when it all came down.

You see this TRUTH is not made with man’s hands, no, it is cut from the MOUNTAIN called GOD. And if you have faith, the size of a mustard seed, you shall say to this GREAT MOUNTAIN OF LOVE AND TRUTH be thou cast into the SEA (Humanities ignorance) and IT SHALL BE. — As I pray I am doing now.

This LAST KINGDOM, is about to fall. It’s true colors are being shown wide and far. Their god is money, their worship is their belly (carnality). They are not setting people free, no, they are making them TWICE THE CHILDREN OF HELL the RELIGIOUS LEADERS of the day are already.

The TRUTH is going out “Church”. The Time is now, it will be SHOUTED FROM THE ROOFTOPS!

“The Kingdom (reign) of Heaven (God’s ways/truth) is come (revealed)”

God has made known to KING NEB. (Carnal Man) what shall come to pass… THIS DREAM IS CERTAIN and the interpretation you all have just read is SURE!

And it is time for people to get in line, take a healthy serving of the love, truth and spirit being poured out today!

You see, while everyone is up in arms over whether or not we have universal healthcare, gay marriage, Christ in Christmas, God’s name on the coin at the Post office or said in the Pledge, I am sitting back and marveling at how God is wiping the slate of lies clean.

God is not money, he is not reserved to one nation, Christ is not something we can sell every December, marriage is a man-made tradition, and bias and prejudice will no longer stand. Your churches will be taxed, gays will be allowed to marry, the name of god (Man’s god) will be taken from every high place, and everything carnal man truly puts his faith in, MONEY, POWER, AUTHORITY, IS COMING DOWN! What has been done in secret will be secret no more. So speak up, confess and repent, for the KINGDOM IS HERE!

The world is about to change everyone. Praise God for that. We will know a God of love, not hate and condemnation. We will learn that we reap what we sow, we will turn from our wicked ways (false beliefs and ideas) and understand that God is in control.

Yesterday at lunch I called a friend, a mighty man of God, named Dean Dosher. You may not have heard of him, but I have sneaking suspicion the world soon will. As we spoke, I joked about how sometimes, when I don’t know what to write I simply pray, flip through the bible, and write on what I find.

So I grabbed my bible, and after talking about the state things while I ate my awesome hot Roast Beef Sandwich (MEAT) I asked him to stop me as I flipped through my bible… Then I gave him a choice of four columns of which I could read from, he chose FOUR.

It was in the Book of Jeremiah, and both Dean and I shook in our hearts as I read it aloud.

For this chapter, described the state of the world and religion today to a tee. It expressed the heartache of God, because his creation had become so corrupt that even when exchanging pleasantries with a neighbors, their hearts were devising evil ambush.

So true and compelling was this chapter that I want to share some of the verses with you. Because this was yet more confirmation that EVERYTHING WE KNOW IS ABOUT TO CHANGE!


JEREMIAH 8

5Why is this people of Jerusalem slidden back by a perpetual backsliding? they hold fast deceit, they refuse to return.
9The wise men are ashamed, they are dismayed and taken: lo, they have rejected the word of the LORD; and what wisdom is in them?
10Therefore will I give their wives unto others, and their fields to them that shall inherit them: for every one from the least even unto the greatest is given to covetousness, from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.

(The Wives are CONGREGANTS, God is saying, he is going to take the Blind flock away from these false teachers and give them to ANOTHER)

11For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.

(Religion makes grand promises that are never kept.)

12Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.

(That Time is NOW!)

15We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble!
18When I would comfort myself against sorrow, my heart is faint in me.
19Behold the voice of the cry of the daughter of my people because of them that dwell in a far country: Is not the LORD in Zion? is not her king in her? Why have they provoked me to anger with their graven images, and with strange vanities?

JEREMIAH 9

3And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD. 4Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. 5And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. 6Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the LORD.

Is this NOT the way things are today? Are there any of you that truly trust those that say “Lord, Lord” in Religion. Are there not many in Religion that do not frown upon, or look down upon, or condemn others to feel better about their own pitiful existence? DOES ANYONE WANT TO PRAY, GOD TEACH ME THE TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT THE COST?

8Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait. 9Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the LORD: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

What has been done in private will be revealed openly. The time is now, God will visit, as he has with Me, with all the wrong I have done in my life, and continue to do. I am no better or worse than the most lost in this world. For we are all one. And those God corrects, he loves. Your sufferings is God’s love poured out on you, so you will wake up and realize you are NOT IN CONTROL.

12Who is the wise man, that may understand this? and who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD hath spoken, that he may declare it, for what the land perisheth and is burned up like a wilderness, that none passeth through?

ARE WE GOING TO DECLARE IT? Who is going to stand up for this generation and say I AM!

Our Road to Emmaus REVEALED

Luke 24
13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. 14And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 15And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 16But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

(The Interpretation)

The double minded man is unstable in all his ways, he walks with no hope toward uncertainty, leaving the Truth behind. And along this journey the TRUTH is revealed within them, it is the Hope of Glory, Christ within. But the double minded man does not understand what TREASURE lay within. The double minded man does not understand the TRUTH that is within.

17And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

Why have you worshipped a god that can be killed, and cannot save. Why don’t you have the hope, that is only found within?

18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days? 19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 22Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

Cleopas translates to “Of a Renowned Father” – This is who we are God’s child. The Double minded man trusted that a man named JESUS would redeem Israel. They looked for this literal man high and low, many wait for his return.

“Don’t you understand?”, the Child of a Renowned Father says ignorantly. “We heard this Jesus was ALIVE, but in the TOMB we could not find him”… Because you will NEVER find the living among the dead.

“Church” you will NEVER find the TRUTH among the DEAD. Leave the carnal death of religion and vain tradition, the TRUTH is not found there. YOU WILL NEVER FIND THE TRUTH IN THE IGNORANT ONES. In ADAM all die. And the DEAD (Ignorant) know not God.

25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

Jesus called the double minded man a FOOL (doesn’t believe the Truth). They did not believe. And then, through the scriptures the TRUTH was revealed to the double minded man. He began to see, what the prophets had spoken concerning CHRIST. They saw what they couldn’t see before… They did not know WHO THEY WERE or what the PROPHETS had said of the COMING (REVEALING OF) Christ.

Do you know, what the PROPHETS said about the COMING (REVEALING) of Christ? – Let’s take a look at some.

2 Samuel 7:12-16 (NIV) When your days are over and you rest with your fathers (WHEN YOU DIE TO YOURSELF) I will raise up your offspring to succeed you, who will come from your own body (WITHIN YOU), and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He is the one who will build a house for my Name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. When he does wrong, I will punish him with the rod of men, with floggings inflicted by men. 15 But my love will never be taken away from him, as I took it away from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me ; your throne will be established forever.'”

Psalms 2:7 (NIV) I will proclaim the decree of the LORD: He said to me, “You are my Son ; today I have become your Father.

(Notice, it doesn’t say I was ALWAYS YOUR FATHER, Today I have become your FATHER, because before we know the Truth, our Father is the DEVIL (our egotistical carnal mind)

Isaiah 11:2 (NIV) The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him– the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD—

The Son (Child) of God, understands the TRUTH of who He is.

Isaiah 61:1 (NIV) The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,

Psalms 45:7-8 (NIV) You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy. 8 All your robes are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia; from palaces adorned with ivory the music of the strings makes you glad.

Deuteronomy 18:18 (NIV) I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him.

Isaiah 7:14 (NIV) Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel. (WHICH MEANS GOD IN ME)

The prophets spoke of CHRIST that would rise from within the loins of ISRAEL… The Hope of Glory is CHRIST WITHIN. The Glory is the concealed TRUTH of God.

“It is the Glory of God to conceal a thing.”

Christ comes in the Glory of God = The TRUTH/SPIRIT OF GOD (Christ) comes (is revealed) in the HIDDEN THING.

Now follow these scriptures and SEE!

Matthew 13:44
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

2 Corinthians 4:7
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Matthew 13:11
He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

The Double Minded man, does not understand this mystery. Until the TRUTH begins to reveal it from WITHIN.

Can you see? Can you hear the glorious trumpet ringing in your ears right now? COMMENT AMEN AND AMEN!

28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

The CHRIST within wants to go farther, to explain more, but the doubleminded man was not ready. He wanted to stay where he was, he did not want to go farther, because these words and truths were dark to him, he did not understand.

The double minded man can only go so far with revelation alone You see, SOMETHING ELSE IS NEEDED so the TWO can become ONE WITH GOD. And that is, HE MUST LEARN OBEDIANCE THROUGH THE THINGS HE SUFFERS.

30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

We are the BREAD that is BROKEN.


1 Corinthians 10:17
For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

Through much tribulation we enter the kingdom (Ruled by Truth and Spirit of God.

And after we are broken we will SEE! We will know the truth, and it will BURN WITHIN US, and it will SET US FREE!

32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

We will RISE and RETURN to the place of TRUTH we left and find others to share THE GOOD NEWS of what we now know!

33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

We will say, CHRIST IS RISEN INDEED! And that this great truth was made know to us, by what we suffered.

34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed… 35And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.

This “Church” is the GLORIOUS DAY we are in. What God has done for one, he does for all! He is no respector of persons and does not esteem one man greater than the next.

The Hope of Glory is no longer something we need to hope for… For, we no longer “hope” to understand that which is hidden, we will KNOW that which is hidden WITHIN US and it is CHRIST!

And we will know as we are known…. WE WILL FINALLY KNOW OUR TRUE SELF and as King Neb saw in his dream, this STONE within us, will grow into a great mountain whose rule shall have no end!

LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY


Note to reader: You HAVE to read this, there is something in this paper that will blow your mind away. So don’t give up, stick with it, I promise you will be amazed at what God reveals to you.

LAND OF MILK AND HONEY

It is the land of promise, the Land Flowing with Milk and Honey. Mmmmnnn sounds yummy doesn’t it?

Now if this were to be literal, I would prefer a land flowing with cookie dough ice cream, hot fudge, peanut butter and jelly waffles and a tall glass of cold skim milk… But by now, I’m sure you’re aware, this “Land Flowing With Milk and Honey” is an allegory.

Some will say, the “Milk and Honey”, represents abundance. Well… THEY ARE WRONG! HA HA! Take that you, wrong believing person you! 🙂

Look, the problem is, these people consider this abundance to be “temporal abundance” like food, clothing, riches, a roof over their heads. Now trust me, God knows what we need physically, and God provides, unless we somehow are reaping what we have sown and for the time being need to learn a lesson or two.

But God always cares for us, and believe me, God is in control of ALL THINGS. And ALL things work together for our good. But let’s get back to the Promise Land.

Exodus 3:8 And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey.

This was the promise God gave to his people Israel when they were in the bondage of Pharaoh and the Egyptians. If you read my article on “The Plagues of Egypt” you would understand the allegory of Egypt, Pharaoh, and the Plagues. But for those who haven’t read it, I will simply translate what the word Pharaoh means, “Their Nakedness/shame.”

You see, Israel, LIKE US, were/are slaves to their Nakedness, to their flesh, to their shame and carnal nature. They were in the chains of ignorance, as are many in the world today. And yes, I am in some of those chains myself. For I know in part for now. You see, it is our shame, created by our DEATH (Carnal ignorance) that becomes our taskmaster. We condemn ourselves, we hate ourselves, some even kill themselves. It is because PHAROAH (their nakedness/shame/ignorance and fear) is ruling the roost.

Ezekiel 36:31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.

This is what we need to be saved from “Church”. We do NOT need to be saved from some infinite torture down the road. Which of course, is a bunch of nonsense created by Meat-heads who were out to make a buck at the expense of the ignorant peasants around them. Unfortunately, many still believe in this “controlling fear tactic” today. And we wonder why there is so much hate and pain in the world?


Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge.

Now I’m going for SHOCK FACTOR right now, so buckle up!

Most who believe that they are SAVED right now. They believe this because they said a few words, did an altar call, got dunked in some water and started to work for their Religious Temples, Churches, etc… Well guess what, THEY AREN’T SAVED! They are so far from being saved it is ridiculous.

Ridiculous, because it is their very belief that they are SAVED by their man-made rules, traditions, and hogwash that they don’t SEEK AND FIND the PROMISE OF GOD, which is TRUE SALVATION.

They ask Christ INTO their heart. As if Christ exists outside of them. Never once realizing the Hope of Glory which is CHRIST WITHIN!

Not only that but most do not even know what it they are saved from. Because religion has poured so much pride, fear, and guilt into them. Mainly Religion uses FEAR, not only of FUTURE DAMNATION, but of excommunication, expulsion, etc… many churches, temples, mosques will kick you out if you don’t get in line and do as the Religious Leaders say.

The Religious, Atheist, and Carnal don’t realize they are already condemned to begin with. That is the irony. It is their false salvation belief that is keeping them in the chains of HELL. Not the Hell they are so scared of. You see, Hell is NOT a place where a GOD OF LOVE sends people to be tortured endlessly, HELL is where those “Who don’t believe and know God” exist in right now. Even those, who don’t miss one church service and pray every night can be DAMNED, if the know not the truth (Christ in them).

John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

And we are all guilty of this. No man is born without SIN. Our physical parents brought us DEATH, our SPIRITUAL parents God and Christ/Wisdom, gives us LIFE!

1 Corinthians 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

This is the good news. Especially for those hearing the WORD OF TRUTH in this day. And I don’t mean WEDSNDAY, I mean the DAY OF THE LORD.

And yes “The Day of the Lord” is a scary one. But NOT the way many have taught it. The Jews believed their Messiah would come and give them a great kingdom and then utterly destroy and torture their enemies… They rejected Jesus, because he came and said, “Love your Enemies, Forgive them, Pray for them” – Now here is wisdom, the Jews were wrong for thinking that the Messiah would come and DESTROY THEIR ENEMIES… Well don’t most Christians believe this is how the Messiah will come again? Some preachers go so far as to say Jesus is a blood thirsty murderer, that the blood of the “Christians” enemies will reach the Horses Neck (of course this too is allegory) but don’t tell the Carnal Religious this. They want their God to murder and torture their enemies, because their heart is filled with such. They are not saved!

Now look the DAY OF THE LORD, is not some future event where the moon literally turns to blood, stars literally fall from the sky, etc…

Now before I get into this next part, I want to give my usual disclaimer, I am simply a man who wants to know the Truth of God. I am not a Pastor, Prophet, Rabbi, Evangelist, Priest, etc. who will say, “what I am teaching is word!” I believe all of these words to be true but you must always seek God and Christ Within if anything I write troubles you. Especially this next part.

Read Acts 2, you will see Peter says…

Acts 2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh…. 19And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

We see here CLEARLY, that the SUN and MOON are allegories. Peter is explaining to the crowds that when the HOLY SPIRIT came upon those men and women in the Upper Room, (When God’s truth was understood and revealed)… Peter said, it was the day Joel spoke of, that SCARRRRRRY DAY of the LORD, he explained, had just happened.

But what REALLY happened? Is it allegorical? You bet your sweet asparagus its allegorical.

So let’s look at that Parable for a moment shall we?

Acts 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

They all came together in the UPPER ROOM (Higher consciousness). They were seeking MORE. And the TRUTH came (revealed) to them. The TRUTH was REVEALED as a RUSHING MIGHTY WIND…

And no! It wasn’t A LITERAL WIND. “Church” Wind is an allegory for DOCTRINE, TEACHING, INSTRUCTION.

Ephesians 4:14 : That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine,

They were being TAUGHT by GOD, and then they were given CLOVEN (Separated) tongues.

Acts 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Now unless your into sci-fiction, I hope you DON’T believe their tongues were literally split down the middle and caught on fire. I’ll write it again, This is ALLEGORY “CHURCH”!

A separated (cloven) tongue is a LANGUAGE and UNDERSTANDING that is separate from the WORLD (Carnal understanding). And these words of TRUTH that they know spoke PURIFY (FIRE) those they speak to.

And NO! They didn’t begin speaking different languages so those in foreign countries could understand them, THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS A MYSTERY, Jesus ONLY spoke in Parable, it is the SPIRIT that reveals the TRUTH… They were NOT speaking foreign languages at the same time, they began speaking their NATIVE TONGUE (which is TRUTH)

First of all, if everyone was speaking at the same time in literal different languages, no one would understand anything. That really is beside the point. However, there is a great treasure hidden away, in the meaning of these “places” that heard their “native tongue” – Which again is GOD’S WORD (TRUTH).

So when you hear those stories of people all of sudden speaking perfect German or Hebrew, etc… it may not be true.

God opens the minds and hearts of those in every city in every country, so there will always be someone to speak the TRUTH, in a literal native tongue, so there is no need to give someone the “magic” power of speaking a language they don’t know.

But I also want to point out something about Tongues. As I used to “speak in tongues” as well back in the day, when I was taught that was “evidence” of the Holy Spirit. Even though, now I know, evidence of the HOLY SPIRIT is the remembrance of TRUTH (God’s word) and it doesn’t say anywhere that it is speaking what appears to be gibberish. Putting that aside, let’s remember what “Tongues” are for…

1 Corinthians 14:22
Wherefore tongues are for a sign, not to them that believe, but to them that believe not

Tongues are a SIGN. And we learned in my Jonah article, there is NO SIGN given, but Jonah’s. (which is coming out of our carnal thinking and knowing the TRUTH/CHRIST) – This is the SIGN to unbelievers, SPEAKING THE TRUTH.

Now here is the problem, many won’t be able to understand the TRUTH, unless it is broken down for them (interpreted) that is why if you speak the wonderful WORKS of God, you must interpret it for those who are hearing it. Otherwise it will make no sense to them.

The last thing I want to put out about Tongues, is they are ONLY mentioned in 1 Corinthians, nowhere else in scripture (that I’m aware of) was this talk about speaking a literal language you don’t know. Now, I do know that “Tongues” will cease, so perhaps this understand of literally speaking in other languages has ceased for me, and I no longer believe it to be what I used to believe it to be, however. I believe the NATIVE TONGUE that each man heard, was the WORD OF GOD.

But let’s look DEEPER at how God gives us our NATIVE TONGUE (The WORDS OF THE KINGDOM). By looking at the meaning of each of those places that HEARD the wonderful works of God.

Acts 2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, 10Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, 11Cretes and Arabians,

This is going to blow your mind! Here are the STRONGS definitions of these words.

Parthia = “a pledge”, Mede or Media = “middle land”, Elam = “eternity”, Mesopotamia = “between two rivers”, Judaea = “he shall be praised”, Cappadocia = “province of good horses”, Pontus = “the sea”, Phrygia = “dry, barren”, Phrygia = “dry, barren”, Egypt = “double straits”, Libya = “afflicted or weeping”, Cyrene = “supremacy of the bridle”, Rome = “strength”, Judah = “he shall be praised”, proselytes = “a newcomer”, Crete = “fleshy”, Arabia = “desert or barren”

Those are the meanings of those that HEARD THEIR NATIVE TONGUE (truth) Now let me put this all together for you and it will give you chills. Mind you I am doing this in the exact order as it is written. You will see this is another hidden treasure showing us God will bring us into the Land of Promise.

“A Pledge (Promise) was made in the middle land of eternity between two rivers (Truth and lies). In the Province of Good Horses (Saints) God shall be praised. In the Seas (carnal mankind), in the dry and barren, in the double straits, those that are afflicted and weeping shall know the supremacy of God’s bridle and Strength. GOD shall be praised by the newcomers to the faith, by the fleshy and the barren.”

Now, I dare you to tell me that is NOT a wonderful coincidence. Then I dare you to tell me that there actually is such a thing as COINCIDENCE!

So now, what was that PLEDGE, or PROMISE, that God made to those dwelling in between heaven and earth, between lies and truth?

The PROMISE is the PROMISE LAND! A Land Flowing with spaghetti and meatballs! I mean, Milk and Honey!

Before I close, showing you exactly what the MILK AND HONEY represent and are. Which has NOTHING to do with temporal abundance, but spiritual abundance… I want to point out that when the TRUTH OF CHRIST hits you, it knocks your socks off, and it gives you a new mind, new words (tongue), and praise God a NEW LIFE!

Now it is a MIGHTY WIND (TRUTH/TEACHING) and many will run from it and want nothing to do with it. Most carnal men and women don’t want to give up hating, debating, worrying, tearing down, and most importantly, they don’t want to give up CONTROL! They don’t want to KNOW THE SUPREMACY OF GOD’S BRIDLE. They don’t want God to be in control, they want to be god themselves. That is what is happening today is Religion everywhere. Man is teaching Man how to be a god themselves (Read my article on the Tower of Babel for more clarity on this)

Carnal man does not want to believe in a God of Love and forgiveness. Because if they do, that means, they must LOVE AND FORGIVE.

No, carnal man wants to believe in a God that condemns and punishes those that do not agree with Him. Why? You ask… So then THEY TOO can condemn and punish those that don’t agree with them!

Nevertheless, when the TRUTH HITS YOU, it changes everything. Look at what happened to Paul, he was STRIKEN BLIND. When the TRUTH comes (is revealed to us), we realize we know NOTHING ABOUT GOD – get it? We understand how BLIND we really are.

However, most today, do not understand that THEY are the ones that are LOST AND DAMNED (which isn’t what the literalists of the world think that means).

These Lost “Dead Men and Women walking” will actually condemn those with the TRUTH as Paul did, before his conversion. They would rather say, GOD WILL NOT SAVE ALL MAN then take a moment to say, “Lord if this be true please show me?” Most believe God’s arm is slack that is cannot save, even the most lost and ugly. They will say on one hand God finishes his creation in Victory, and then say only a small percent of God’s creation will know Him.

Meanwhile, in the land of HEAVEN and TRUTH, we know “Every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess Christ (God’s Truth and Spirit) as Lord TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER!

And what GLORIFIES GOD people? Read on.

Luke 18:43 And immediately he received his sight, and followed him, glorifying God: and all the people, when they saw it, gave praise unto God.

So for those who say, God is glorified when the Ignorant of the world are sent off to an eternity of torture, the bible says, GOD is GLORIFIED when those that did not SEE (know Him) received their sight (understanding/wisdom) – This is how God is glorified, when the BLIND (Ignorant) SEE (Have the revelation of CHRIST IN THEM)

That is the GOOD NEWS, that GOD will deliver ALL from the Bondage of PHAROAH and the EGYPTIANS… God will deliver us ALL and SAVE us ALL from the Hell of our IGNORANCE, PRIDE, and Carnal EGO.

And there is but ONE way to that Salvation and that is CHRIST, which is the TRUTH of God. WHICH IS IN YOU! Not coming in the CLOUDS outside of you.

The CLOUDS are the WITNESSES of TRUTH.

Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of WITNESSES.

This is how Christ comes (Revealed) – The TRUTH sets us FREE from WITHIN.

In the Gospel of Thomas there is a great line that Jesus says, “If you bring forth that which is within you it will save you. If you do not bring forth that which is within you it will destroy you!”

But Salvation is more than just believing IN CHRIST, to be saved you MUST BE IN CHRIST, and CHRIST IN YOU!

Ponder those last words. For, if you are in something, and something is in you, who are you?

When you find this out… THEN YOU ARE SAVED!

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

Pay attention to that last line. THE TRUTH SETS US FREE. Not a believing in a literal man, but believing in the WORD OF GOD that is revealed in a literal Man. You will not be saved by religion, tradition, tithing, or anything man-made or created by man.

Okay, so after writing six pages this morning I will finally get to the point of this essay. Call me “Captain Segway”!

Salvation is of and from God, it is by HIS GRACE and our Faith in Christ that we are SAVED… And to get there, we have to inherit the promise land.

Exodus 3:8
And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey

So what is this land that God delivers us for and brings us to? Is it a literal place? Is it a good job, new car, nice home? Or is it something better even than that? To understand this further we must look at what scripture tells us the LAND, MILK, and HONEY actually is.

Let’s first look at Honey:

1 Samuel 14:27
But Jonathan heard not when his father charged the people with the oath: wherefore he put forth the end of the rod that was in his hand, and dipped it in an honeycomb, and put his hand to his mouth; and his eyes were enlightened.

(The taste of this honey, gave Jonathan revelation… but revelation of what?)

1 Samuel 14:43
Then Saul said to Jonathan, Tell me what thou hast done. And Jonathan told him, and said, I did but taste a little honey with the end of the rod that was in mine hand, and, lo, I must die
.

(It is the Revelation that he must DIE. We must DIE to our CARNAL EGO)

PROVERBS 24: 13 My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: 14So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.

It should be pretty clear, that “Honey” is the Knowledge of Gods Wisdom.

Isaiah 7:15
Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

Eating (assimilating = Becoming one with) this “Honey” (God’s wisdom) helps us to know how to refuse EVIL (lies) and Choose Good which is Truth.

AND NOW FOR THE MILK!

Isaiah 28:9
Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

You see to get to the “Honey” (Understanding we must die to ourselves and become one with God’s truth) we must be weaned from MILK. So, it stands to reason, “MILK” is something we start off with before coming to complete HONEY (Enlightenment)

1 Corinthians 3 1And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.

You see here, MILK is fundamental teaching, so rudimentary that the carnal can glean from it. (Look at all those big words I just used LOL)
MILK is the rudiments of understanding. Milk is for BABES in Christ. Newcomers to the Faith.

1 Peter 2:2
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

So Israel wasn’t entering a LITERAL LAND of ABUNDANCE at all. This PROMISE LAND is our PROMISE LAND as well. And God will bring us into it.

The LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY. God will teach us as babes, lead us into maturity, and gives us the greatest of all gifts, the ENLIGHTENMENT of CHRIST!
