Revelation 14 Revealed


The Lamb and the 144,000

If you are anything like me, lately you have felt an extraordinary excitement within, a feeling like something big is about to happen. And if you are anything like me, you know that means CHANGE is no longer coming, it is here now!

As you know I am one who submits himself to the power of inspiration…
Another way of saying that is, I am one who is totally and completely submitted to the Lord of Hosts. Which is to say, who I am in this world is “Host” to a power and spirit much greater than my own.

That’s right I am talking about “God”. That spirit that is IN me, and the spirit I am in. The beginning and the End, the creator of us all. Existence. Source. Light. Love. Whatever name you have for the “Father” us all … I am here to declare “Him”. I am here to declare what Father Inspiration has to say.

And so when recently, I began seeing the numbers 144 everywhere, almost immediately after turning 44 years old myself, I knew there was something to it. I knew I was meant to share with all of you.

However, if you know me, you also know I consider what I share a weighty thing. And so, I don’t just immediately jump on something and tell the world what I believe it means, I wait until I KNOW what it means.

It wasn’t until receiving a check for 144 dollars by my Mother and receiving and email to look into the 144,000 of scripture that I finally understood…

The Day That We All Have Been Waiting For Is Here!

It should have been obvious to me, the caterpillar infestation in my backyard, the subsequent revelation and video that followed, my wife revealing to me my suffering was as the patience Job before entering the double fold, and then of course the countless Gypsy Moths rising from their tombs and following me everywhere I seem to go…

All true…

And so I knew, I was meant to deliver a message.

Below you can find this message in the form of a youtube video, if you want to forego the deeper meaning of Revelation Chapter 14, which speaks of the Lamb and the 144,000… But I do encourage you to gird up your loins and allow Inspiration to open your eyes to the great and “terrible” (to stand in awe) day of the Lord.

If not simply scroll down to the 144,000 video… Don’t forget to subscribe it is free, and please, please share this if it has encouraged you.

To try and be brief, as I know this message to be of great importance. I simply am going to share chapter Revelation 14 and after each verse, enlighten you to its meaning.

So let’s begin shall we … For within these verses you will see YOUR LIFE!

Rev 14:1
Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.

What St. John is describing here is highly symbolic. The book of Revelation is meant to be taken very much like the interpretation of a dream.

In fact, a majority of the scriptures are nothing more than allegories for us all to learn from.

This is why the apostle Paul maintained that the literal interpretation of the holy scriptures kills the life and truth found within the SPIRIT of the scriptures.

It is the SPIRIT of the story that gives LIFE (enlightenment/wisdom).

So with that being said the “LAMB” we see here is clearly symbolic of CHRIST (the power and wisdom of God).

A Lamb is a baby Sheep, it is the sacrifice, it is a symbol of casting off the old nature of man.

This is why the Lamb we read about in scripture is slain. For more info on the lamb Slain check out my essay on the subject.

Notice the place where the Lamb stands … Mount Zion. This is a symbol of true enlightenment. The height of understanding and wisdom. It is a place of complete TRUST in the Lord.

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. (‭Psalm‬ ‭125‬:‭1‬ NIV)

Now this Lamb that St John saw standing firm before him was also with 144,000 overcomers.

Each of the 144,00 had the “Name” of the Lamb and the Father written in their foreheads.

Quite literally, the word “Name” means Nature. And so to picture anyone with the Name/Nature of God written in their foreheads, is to see someone who has the Nature of God written in their minds… In their foremost thoughts, a person will find Love.

This 144,000 is a first fruits if you will.

It is the remnant chosen to stand up today. They TRUST in the Lord (Mount Zion is where they stand) and in their minds, (written in their foreheads) one will find the true nature (name) of God. (love, truth, power, creativity, light)

Now why this chapter is important is because the 144,000 that John saw in his vision are now being revealed to all.

That’s right these are the chosen vessels meant to declare the new day.

Strategically placed these 144,000 individuals will together speak only the truth of God. Which is why John goes on to say,

“And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. “

We know that Heaven is within us all.

So what John says he hears from heaven, we know it is actually coming out of the mouths of this remnant (144,000) of people who have been enlightened to the truth.

The sound came from like a roar of rushing waters and a loud peal of thunder.

Well what John heard was God’s WORD …. The truth… As Ezekiel 1:24 states, the sound of a “roar of rushing water” is as the voice of God. Which is Wisdom spoken from our heart.

And Proverbs states a fountain of WISDOM is as a rushing stream.

Not to mention, according to Job, thunder announces the coming of a storm.

His thunder announces the coming storm; even the cattle make known its approach. (‭Job‬ ‭36‬:‭33‬ NIV)

John saw a day when Messengers would stand up all over the world and share the light of truth, and in so doing also drawing all of mankind to them…

As I am declaring a new day to you, so too John saw a day when men like me would do the same. Isn’t that interesting?

Quite a coincidence, one might say. 😉

And so these 144,000 (messengers submitted to God’s will, not by choice, but by election) John sees declaring what is to come, as thunder declares the coming storm.

But there is something beautiful about this sound John hears. He describes it as the sound of Harps.

The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps.

A Harp is symbolic of laughter and joy.

These messengers will talk quite a bit about peace and joy. Also a coincidence don’t you think?

Do we not hear today love, peace, and joy declared in the land?

The HARPS John hear was Laughter, Joy!

In a land, that Isaiah woefully explained, where Joy (harp) was cut off from the land of the ignorant…

The joyful timbrels are stilled, the noise of the revelers has stopped, the joyful harp is silent. (‭Isaiah‬ ‭24‬:‭8‬ NIV)

… Now John hears joy.

Do you hear the laughter? I sure do.

Even though today it seems
Laughter is gone… To the “144,000” with the Lamb (Christ/sacrifice) in their midst, a NEW SONG of praise is SUNG.

This SONG (message of truth) no one else can sing (share). The 144,000 alone will teach the world to sing it.

And they won’t need to buy the world a bottle of coke to do it. 🙂

And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.

The four living creatures we find in the book of Revelation as well. Ezekiel also speaks of them. There is a difference in their number of wings. And Ezekiel these living creatures have four wings. And revelation they have six.

So these 144000 with the lamb they sing this new song in front of these living creatures and in front of the throne of God.

The throne of God by now you must know is the human brain. I have an article on that called the white throne of judgment on this site please do look it up for more information.

But who are these four living creatures? What does the lion and the ox and the man and the eagle represent?

I believe these represent the different nature’s within man. In Scripture, we see very often animals being used to describe the symbolic of the natures found within the heart of man.

The stubborn OX, who is worthy of it’s hire. The wicked man whose mind is on evil each and every day. The LION that goes to and fro seeking whom it may devour. And the Eagle who rises above all, known both for its ease of flight, cunning vision, the greatest predator of all.

And, of course the 24 elders that sit around the throne of God, symbolic of the 12 pairs of cranial nerves that surround the brain.

This is a two-pronged approach. Symbolic of the song being one that is found in heaven. And the song that they sang being found in the earth.

This is not just a natural, temporal work but it is a spiritual work as well.

Which is really a fancy way of saying that when these individuals stand up and share this message of truth and joy and express their laughter and love. Those words will then affect those who hear it without and within which will bring about a change for all to see.

The chapter goes on to describe the character of these individuals that John sees.

These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.

This verse obviously has nothing to do with sexuality. It is symbolism once again. The women these individuals do not defile themselves with is man’s ignorant soul.

The woman is not a literal woman obviously. The woman that is not supposed to speak in church that Paul spoke of is man’s intellect. EVE

EVE is what brought all of this suffering upon us. Man’s intellect is a dreadful thing, and it, like EVE gives birth to all things. For out of our EGO and our Intellect do we shape the worlds.

These 144,000 no longer rely on their intellect… They don’t become ONE with the weaker vessel (intellect) they FOLLOW ONLY THE LAMB!!!!

They are as VIRGINS … I sure hope you have eyes to see this.

These individuals, that I know are in the earth today, are not to be congratulated for their good heart and their charity. They have no choice but to be they are meant to be. They understand that they are predestined according to a greater purpose than the intellect would say. This is why they will not mess with the woman anymore. This is why they are as virgins. Because they have been purchased to be a first fruits.

These are they that I’ve called Jesus Christ on earth. If the name Jesus explains the nature of these individuals better. However, one must stop trying to label everything to explain it.

That was Adam’s job… To label things… But now only one thing matters at all. Submitting to the Lord. Submitting to love. Standing in awe of the spirit that is and was and will always be.

Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people.

The day John saw is the day you are witnessing right now.

Today, even my blog can be read all over the world. Because the eternal gospel of truth, of love and peace MUST be declared everywhere.

And so it is, we MUST submit to TRUTH.

He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.”

And isn’t that what I have been saying all along?

Listen, if you are reading these words right now then you should know they are the fulfillment of John’s vision.

Isn’t that incredible?

Do you see the day we are in?

Not just that …

We are moments away from the whole Religious System falling.

And before that happens the 144,000 declare that we must give God, and God alone, whether you know him by that name or not, the Glory.

The first, is what I have been saying from the beginning.

This is why many who first loved me and celebrated me now abandon me.

Because I declared, “I am IN the Father, and the Father is IN me, but I AM NOT THE FATHER, but you shall only know the Father by knowing me. And no one will know the Father by any other way, than by hearing what I say and doing it.

And so those who abandoned me, those who reduced the everlasting spirit within us all to a mere word, “love” and have declared there is NO GOD while not realizing they have made their own INTELLECT’S GOD, and those that declare there is a GOD and condemn those who do not agree,

who they have made their Ego (Intellect) God while screaming there is no God beside their Ego/Intellect, ironically.

A second angel followed and said, “ ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,’ which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.”

And NOW you will hear me say the same… As Babylon once fell away within me, now it falls away without…

The religious system was first beat spiritually and now it will fall temporally … Sort of me saying, what John said, that i too have said before…

If anyone follows after the lies of religion, if any worships their intellect, their carnal ego, and keeps greed, selfishness, lust, judgment, hatred, fear, shame, in their heart, these individuals will find no rest day or night.

A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.”.

We have been patient, we have endured hardship, and we have lives a restless life before, but as we have been woken up from our ignorance, so too will those who worship their Intellect/Ego ignorantly.

This is the patience of the Saints. That we remain faithful to the way, the truth and the life within us.

This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.

Next John understands that once we enter into the REST of God that we are blessed.

Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.”

Our deeds will follow us truly. Everything we say will return to us. We are held accountable after all.

Now this last part, is what I am perhaps most excited about. Watch how the beautiful symbolism comes to life clearly before your eyes.

I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand.

When John describes white cloud he’s actually describing the great cloud of witnesses.

He is describing the chosen group of people meant to stand up. He is saying they are as Jesus in the earth.

Isn’t that interesting? Isn’t that what I’ve been saying all along?

The difference is now the number is far more vast that will now LEARN this NEW SONG they sing.

Gold is symbolic of Divinity. A crown is symbolic of authority. And the sickle is symbolic of the truth been cast into the world to reap.

The time is now my friends. The Time is Now!

Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, “Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.” So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested. Another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle. Still another angel, who had charge of the fire, came from the altar and called in a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Take your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the earth’s vine, because its grapes are ripe.”

Now here is what I am inspired to write about this last portion. The first part of this essay dealt with the first fruit, the overcomers, and since the first fruit is deemed holy, so is the rest.

Those who, to us, seem lost will not be lost for long. For the ax is laid to the root of their wickedness. This means, those that denied the truth and allowed their ego’s to rule will now be plucked off the Earth’s vine and gathered as grapes.

Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe: come, get you down; for the press is full, the fats overflow; for their wickedness is great. (‭Joel‬ ‭3‬:‭13‬ KJV)

The time is now indeed. So get ready to see a great upheaval in the land. Get ready for those who do not trust in the law of Love to put thrust into the winepress of God’s wrath…

This is symbolic of correction. None of us is a stranger to suffering. Scripture teaches that through much tribulation we enter the kingdom of God… And so even though this may seem a grievous time for those who have not yet been enlightened to the truth, because of their hardship, they will.

People everywhere will be humbled, and when they are, the spirit of Love and truth will be able to restore it all. Kingdom of God on earth, heaven on earth. The prayer as it is in heaven, it will be on earth.

So, the harvest has begun and that my friends is a good thing. So think it not terrible when we see those baptized with the fire around, so hardship and struggle will pave the way for eternity.

The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. They were trampled in the winepress outside the city, and blood flowed out of the press, rising as high as the horses’ bridles for a distance of 1,600 stadia.

And Behold the day is here!

Episode 4: “Good Vibrations Part 2”

Speckled Sheep

Jacob's Sheep
Speckled Sheep

Just this past week we witnessed History. The Supreme Court ruled that Gay Marriage is a RIGHT. And as you can imagine, it has set off a firestorm of debate worldwide, especially among those who claim to have faith.

I, for many years, have been very vocal about my support for gay rights. I have made it clear, that this understanding is not just to appease societal pressure, but God given, if you will.

There IS a reason ten percent, or so, part of the population, is attracted to the same sex.

There are many reasons behind this. But for some, well… They just are not reasonable.

That being stated, there are many faiths that could simply explain same sex attraction.

The idea that a person may have been female in a past life and was still attached to that form, could explain their attraction. Oh sure, I know reincarnation is something that most religious minds cannot fathom. However, the scriptures point strongly toward incarnation of some sort.

Jesus, when asking the disciples who he was, many of them believed he was one of the prophets back from the grave.

Jesus also said John the Baptist was actually Elijah reincarnated.

However, it is a fruitless effort to try and explain why things are… They simple ARE! And simply pointing to passages in Holy Books to prove why things are the way they are is indeed a vain task.

It is my belief that everyone of us are intrinsically connected to each other. And so to see another as shameful is to actually hate one’s self.

The fact that we are all different and yet the same is important. Because it teaches us of the futility of intolerance and hate.

On the surface we may seem different, but spiritually speaking we are all the same. Scientifically speaking we are in fact part of one vibration, what many minds like Einstein would call the unified field… We all are connected. The scriptures teach us that we are in fact ONE!

There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (‭Ephesians‬ ‭4‬:‭4-6‬ NIV)

And so I think it is a beautiful thing that together we are no longer looking at others as somehow less important, less righteous, less moral, or just less than ourselves.

Religious People are angry because a set of other people were finally given the right to take part in a very misunderstood vain tradition of man, “Marriage”

Especially when marriage, according to scripture, has nothing to do with marriage in the traditional sense. Far from it. And yet, what we know as marriage today is a great allegory for us. Two becoming One, and being fruitful and multiplying. (Which is completely spiritual if truth be told.)

Because the two that become one is the CHRIST and the INTELLECT of man. Or the SPIRIT and the SOUL if you will.

It is actually about heaven and earth being bound together… So that whatever is happening spiritually will also be happening tangibly and naturally. And boy is it ever happening today … Exactly, as planned I must say.

And yes, those who know me, I long saw this day.

Many do not understand why I said one day everyone would be allowed to marry, and many more don’t understand why I am so excited to see this come to pass…

And it would be easy for me to not understand, why they don’t understand, because LOVING OTHERS as yourself (even though they are you, or a reflection of you) is the ONLY WAY to paradise….

But I do understand why they can’t simply understand this because there is a Great Famine in the land.

You see Religion had seven years of plenty, if you will, but as prophesied there is a great famine in the land. There is a great hunger for the wisdom, and power of God, which IS Christ.

Now there is a great hunger for truth, like never before.

And NOW, people are going to start looking, and what they are going to find… You first found here with me…


Religion’s god has forsaken them, religion’s god has failed them… Because LOVE IS LOVE, do you see?

And so I wrote this poem recently, which poetically explained why I see many of those hurt by religion my speckled sheep, if you can receive that? … That I won fair and square from Laban, much like the kingdom for simply making a meal for my “hungry, irrational, older brother” 😉

In any event, please do enjoy the Poem and Enjoy the Video that further explains this vision. Videos are easier for me because my AS makes it hard to type sometimes. So please do share this labor of love of mine.

Please, please subscribe, and share this free resource with others. Hope this poem and video resonates with you and I look forward to hearing back from all of you.

I love you Jacob.


“Like the “JACOB” from scripture, I too am a Shepherd, and I was a Shepherd for Laban, otherwise known as Christian TV.

Yes, like Jacob, the one from scripture that I must confess is me.

And when I was there, prosperity was in the air, and yet I declared the knowledge of the LORD, and the WISDOM OF LOVE was not found anywhere… and this is why I ULTIMATELY had to leave. But not before taking with me the SPECKLED, the SPOTTED, GOATS and SHEEP.

Like LABAN, Religion sees THESE type of SHEEP as undesirable, and so they were given to me.

My desire, which burns inside me like a fire, is to lead. And so I went through Laban’s flock and chose… all of those… who LABAN loved to beat.

To which LABAN replied, and for the first time had not lied, “I have no problem you taking those undesirables away. I never liked those Speckled, Spotted, Sheep and goats anyway.

Laban said, “Jacob, you can have the fag, the whore, the addict and the poor. You can take the broken, the hippie, the crazies, and the marijuana token. You can have the weak, and all of those sinning disgusting forsaken goats and sheep!”

And so I did when I left Religious TV… and NOW BEHOLD THE FLOCK SURROUNDING ME!

Laban, Religious TV, today the world has spoken… BECAUSE GOD HAS FORSAKEN THEE!”

The days we find ourselves in today are perhaps the most concerning to us all. Never before has there seemed to be so much on the line. Never before has there been so much uncertainty. Most importantly, never before has there been such a opportunity for us all to grow into the life we all have been purposed for. Truly, the days we find ourselves in today are perhaps the greatest days there have ever been.

A day when we see the Promise Land… no longer far off… but in our grasp.

I often use the example of giving birth to describe spiritual breakthrough. What better example is there for us? In fact even the scriptures teach us that we shall learn about spiritual things by those physical things surrounding us.

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

Your experiences and your surroundings are your greatest teachers. From the car you drive, where you live, to what is growing in your backyard, what kind of neighbors you have, how you dress, everything in your life, names, addresses, people, animals, everything you see and experience is a physical representation of what is going on within you spiritually. I know that sounds far out, but start looking for the road map within your life and you will be amazed. And what better allegory is there for us all to learn from, then giving birth?

Giving birth is indeed one of our greatest lessons to learn from. Why do you think we are told to be “born again”? Why does Paul speak about travailing in birth until Christ is formed in you?

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

The answer is simple, we are all PREGNANT WITH POSSIBILITY! And d-day is here… delivery day that is. 🙂 But let’s look a bit more into the womb of scripture.

Have you ever questioned why there are so many “barren wombs” described in scripture? Have you ever wondered why one of the greatest miracles written about has to do with a “virgin birth”? This is all allegory for us to learn from. The child that is born, who has the government of the world on his shoulders is the child that is born WITHIN YOU! It is the true you! It is the Christ In You, as You. This is the hope of Glory, Christ In you! Until, as Paul writes, Christ is formed in you.

There is so much symbolism that revolves around “birth” that it is hard to avoid. 40 is the number of testing and trying many state. 40 years in the wilderness, 40 days of temptation, 40-year-old Kings, Kings ruling for 40 years… The number 40 is repeated again and again, and at the end of the 40 days, or 40 years, something great always happens. Israel enters the promise land, Jesus overcomes his time of temptation, etc, etc… And the physical application is as wonderful, for it takes 40 weeks for a typical pregnancy to come full term. We also see the trimester represented in the 3 day resurrection.

So why all of this emphasis on proving the significance of pregnancy? Why am I trying to show you that physical birth is a great lesson we should all pay close attention to? The reason is simple, we are all about to give birth.

And what happens right before we give birth? It hurts… It hurts real bad… to the point that you want it all to end. It hurts so bad you feel like you would rather die than give birth to the very thing you have waited for, for nine months. And yet, after that child is born, your suffering is not counted as worthy to be compared to the glory that you now have in your loving arms.

John 16:21
A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world

This is such a great lesson for us all. Because life has been so, so very hard for so many of us. We try so hard and we step out in faith and yet we still struggle, we still suffer, we still are condemned, attacked, and forced to face great hardship. For many, it can get so hard you just want to give up… just like that woman when her hour of delivery is come.

The woman we see here, is YOUR SOUL! Your sense of being, your understanding, your intellect, whatever you want to call it. The woman is ALL OF US… and right, for many reason, we find ourselves dealing with a good amount of sorrow and uncertainty. We have all gone through things before, but now it feels different. Now the stakes seem so much higher. This, mark me, is for good reason. The reason is, the stakes ARE HIGHER THAN BEFORE! BECAUSE OUR TIME HAS COME!

In addition, I promise you once that Child (The Second You, The Born Again You, The Hopeful you, The Faith-filled You, The ChristInYou)… once this new life of yours is born, you will have JOY UNSPEAKABLE! You will see that nothing shall be impossible to you with FAITH! And for once in your life, you will have the FAITH to back up the belief in faith.

Matthew 17:20
If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Because if you are truly honest with yourself, you may say you have FAITH! But if you REALLY are honest with yourself, you will see you still suffer because your faith is not yet whole and complete.

It is truly one thing to say you have faith and another thing to actually see it at work in your day-to-day. A lack of faith is what has been the cause of our suffering. Because if we had faith and it was at work in us, regardless of what came our way, we would not doubt, we would have no fear, we would trust that everything is working together for our greater good. We all know tha scripture in Romans that teaches us, that “all things work together” but there is evidence of this throughout the scriptures.

Do you think Joseph when he was rejected, abused, cast into a pit to die, then sold off into slavery, only to rise above his station to then be accused of a crime he did not commit, be thrown into jail, only to rise against his station again and be beaten for his interpretation… Do you think Joseph had any real idea of what God had planned for him? Well, if truth be told… HE SURE DID! He dreamed about it, spoke about the sun, the moon, the stars, all bowing before him. His brothers knew he was predestined for greatness, his father knew Joseph was special which is why he gave him that wondrous coat of many colors (a pledge from God, a covenant, a covering)… So Joseph knew, others knew, but I guarantee like you and me, each time Joseph was cast down, each time things got harder and worse, I GUARANTEE Joseph worried and had fear, as we had fear and worry. But in the end, JOSEPH RULED EGYPT, and we too SHALL RULE our own personal EGYPTS! The very place we were once enslaved in, the very place we were accused, condemned, imprisoned, we shall RULE! And all those that did us wrong, we too will be given the change to FORGIVE and FEED THEM the truth that set us free and shall also set them free.

We, like Joseph have been storing up the treasure of wheat in our store house. And our barns are filled with understanding and truth so we are not going to suffer during this famine (of truth) we see in the land. We laid up this treasure as we have suffered through our lives, and now is the time when those who persecuted us, who turned their backs on us, will return to us seeking what we have had all along… FAITH and UNDERSTANDING.

Matthew 6:20
But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal

A QUICK note on this scripture… The Treasure that we are laying up, is Wisdom, which is a tree of life, it is our salvation, our hope, and this Wisdom is stored in the Kingdom, which is within us, and it is our Righteousness, Peace and Joy, and POWER of the Holy Ghost, it is CHRIST! The thieves cannot break in and steal it away from us… Remember the Thieves according to scripture are those that do not know the gospel, the Thieves are those that try to get into the Kingdom other ways.

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

We must enter the Sheepfold… the place where the Sheep enter to be sacrificed, we must DIE TO OUR EGO to be born again into the Life of Christ (power and wisdom of God). So it is impossible for a Thief (those who do not know the truth, and believe in lies and teach lies) to steal the treasure that we have stored.

Many of you believe yourselves to be poor, weak, insignificant. You say things like, who am I? I am fooling myself to believe I somehow have greater insight than others, look at my life, I am lost, I am hurting, HOW CAN I BE STORING ANYTHING UP… MUCH LESS TREASURE!

Well let me show you, how WHEAT (truth) is gathered and stored. For the WHEAT is who we are at heart! the children of the kingdom, and our glory is not known until we are picked, shaken, beat, ground, dried, and then set aside until an appointed time.

While we slept (a symbol of being ignorant of what is really going on) and enemy (our ego/works/man’s ways) planted tares (lies) along with the wheat. And our lives have been spent with both the truth of who we are, and the lie of who we think we are, growing up together within us. And it isn’t until the wheat is fully matured, filled with seeds in its head, that it can be known from the tares. And it is my firm belief, that this time of harvest is now.

Matthew 13:30
Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn

This process we have been through has been a painful one. The lies had to be burned away, but our wheat (our true nature) was never harmed. We have been through the storms, we have been through the winepress, ground under the wheat stone, we have been set aside for a time appointed, a time that we have doubted we would ever see. But now that time is here, nearer than ever before, and it is our faith that will bring us home.

Romans 13:11
And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.

Now is indeed the time for us to WAKE UP out of our slump, cast aside our fears and worries for tomorrow. How many times are we going to recite those scriptures that command us to “take no thought for tomorrow”, and then in the next breath we speak about our fears of what tomorrow may bring. It is time for us to have FAITH! To trust and fully believe that THERE IS A GOD! TO BE STILL AND KNOW GOD! To trust that God’s arm is not slack that it cannot save… To BELIEVE that God’s creation is finished in VICTORY! And we are that firststripe that the Master will pick from the vine to prove how holy the rest of creation will be.

We already know Salvation is not about being saved from what will happen after we physically die. We know Salvation is being delivered from our own fears, worries and lust our carnal ego demands. This is what we are being saved from. And the only way to do this, is with FAITH!

2 Timothy 3:15
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith

It is IMPOSSIBLE for us to be set free and to rule and reign without faith! It is IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD WITHOUT FAITH!

Really think about that for a second… If God is pleased, you are pleased, if God is at peace with you, you are at peace with God… Without Faith it is impossible for you to know joy!

Even though we have had seasons of pain and hardship, even though now it seems our troubles are as the sands of the sea, WE HAVE BEEN KEPT BY THE POWER OF GOD THROUGH FAITH UNTO SALVATION… which is ready to be revealed in our lives!

1 Peter 1:4-6
4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations

Ask yourself, how are the sick in scripture healed?


How are the blind given sight? How are the deaf given sound? How do the lame walk? How do the dead raise? How did David kill Goliath? How did the walls of Jericho fall? How were kingdom’s overthrown and risen up? How were enemies defeated and children birthed from barren wombs? How is a man justified? How is a man saved? How is anything possible at all?


And what is FAITH?

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen

Faith is made from the very things we hope for, what we hope for is what makes up our faith… and our Faith is the evidence of these things. In other words, what we have hoped for, the peace and salvation we wish to have, we will have, and our FAITH is the evidence that this is true… In other words, we wouldn’t hope for it, if it was beyond our reach. BECAUSE GOD IS THE ONE WHO GAVE US THAT DESIRE TO BEGIN WITH!

So it is time that you put away your fears, and cut off the flow of negativity from your tongue. It is time to trust God, to know you are about to give birth, that you are about to be free. It is time to HAVE FAITH like never before! A faith in God so strong that it doesn’t matter who believes or doesn’t believe in you, it doesn’t matter how big your troubles seem to be!

Romans 3:3
For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

We shall know the incredible joy of hope, we shall taste the perfection of peace and never let it go again. Because we have chosen FAITH!

Romans 5:1
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ

And if you believe your faith is weak, or you wish you could find faith in the midst of this final hour of travail… THEN ASK FOR IT! But when you ask, HAVE FAITH that your faith will be increased!

James 1:6
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed

Our problem has always been our wavering, not really standing on that firm foundation of Faith. This is why we have suffered for so long, but now we have learned that our wavering has produced our pain and we are choosing a new path! One where FAITH is our breastplate… (The breastplate SHIELDS your HEART 🙂 ), one where we know we cannot faith! And by knowing this, we finally enjoy the moment!

“LORD” (which literally means, the existing one) INCREASE OUR FAITH!

Luke 17:5
And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith.

And when our faith is increased, and when we stand solely on our faith, we will finally be whole!

Luke 17:19
And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole

The day of your deliverance is here, you have permission to enter in, and all it takes is believing that you can… and you will regardless of what you believe or have believed, because THIS WORD WILL NOT RETURN VOID!

Pioneer and Perfecter

The Pioneer and Perfecter of Faith!

Idolatry, is the greatest of all sins. To put your faith in a lie, well nothing good can come of that. How could it? If you believed the moon was made of cheese and set out to land of the moon with that belief, you would most likely never land on the moon. We only accomplish building something truly on a foundation that is true.

Idolatry, is more than just believing in a false god, or believing a carved piece of wood or stone can save you, idolatry is living a lie and calling it truth.

So in fact, if you aren’t living to your full potential and you believe yourself to be something you are not, you my friend are an idolator and the truth of who you are you forgot.

And nothing good comes of that.

For example, if you believe you are miserable and depressed your belief hardens into fact. Because truly you are an infinite creative force capable of all things, if you are willing to receive all that.

If your faith is in such idols as depression and misery, then a miserable depressed person you will be. Because you are capable off creating everything, lack and abundance, curse and blessing.

Aren’t you exactly where you believe yourself to be? And if you say you are not capable today of being anywhere else, perhaps its time to take those idols off your shelf, to begin intentionally creating heaven instead of ignorantly creating hell.

Can’t you see you are under jealousy, hypocrisy, and idolatry’s spell? Killing, condemning, shaming, complaining, un naming and taming everyone and everything your idol of a God says is not well.

This is the reason every child of God fell.

People sacrifice much to idols today. They sacrifice their joy, their peace, and their loved ones many times they even throw away. People even sacrifice their own children I must say.

That is why, A pioneer am I, for the whole of the world today. My desire is to lead the way. To leave behind the waisted time, and to live a life of unimagined play. I am sad to see all of the idolatry in the land today.

Friendship sacrificed for jealousy, love for lust, profit preferred before family, and the such. Slaves to the chains and staves of idolatry’s touch.

The true danger of idolatry is, if you believe yourself to be someone who you really are you missed. Because you are the creator of both misery and bliss. Freedom is found in knowing this.

Now let me speak on one idol in particular. Jesus of Nazareth.

Who, by the way, would turn over in his grave, if he knew what religion about him had to say.

This is the great idol in the land. He is the blue eyed, long haired, crucified, bearded man, whose image can be seen in churches, parks, schools, and universities, in pictures, in paintings, and of course on tv.

You are taught that only believing on him can set you free. Even though a literal image of God there should never be. Not on heaven, on earth, above or beneath, not like a bird in the sky, corrupt man in the land, or like a fish in the sea.

God is not a man that he should lie, or the son of man that he should repent. And yet, this is the idolatrous message that the devil of an ego of yours sent.

Now they have said, that for our salvation he wound up dead, and that we would need do nothing but believe on his name, that he, and he alone accomplished something that none of us could ever attain. This was the lie that the liars knew could keep us deaf, dumb, blind and lame.

We were told we would have to hold unto the faith that one day we would be set free. That Jesus was something that we could never dream to be.

We were told that Jesus was the pioneer and finisher of our faith. But once again this idolatry is a disgrace, because the story was never about another man literally being murdered in our place.

The story is about a man who came to understand that there was a bigger plan who simply set the pace.

You see, Jesus was actually a pioneer in what I like to call Radical Faith.

And he perfected it and shared his life as a living sacrifice for the entire human race.

It has never been about what Jesus would do, it is about knowing religious lies from the truth, that as Jesus was and is in the world so are you. This is the faith it takes to understand at your command every mountain will move.

This is the faith that can erase any shame, past sin, or fear. The same kind of faith that motivated me to come on and share with you all here.

Like those ancients who were praised for the kingdoms they helped raise simply because of their faith.

All of whom had to rise from the tomb of all they had to endure. All of whom knowing what their hard times were for.

If not for the eventual discomfort of the eagles nest the chicks would never take flight and explore. This is why we need idols no more. This is why you will often hear me cry, you are more, you are more, you are more.

And so, I want you to know, into your faith you will always grow, whether that be idolatry or peace and harmony, the fruit of your life is always dependent on the seeds you sow.

So, after watching my latest short video please remember “You are more than you know”.

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.

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.

IN THE NOW with JIM SWILLEY – Season Two – Episode One

IN THE NOW with JIM SWILLEY – Season Two – Episode Two



MY LIVE APPEARANCE on “METRON” is AVAILABLE NOW for FREE! However, that was not the miraculous part… How it came to be and what came out of it, was. You see, this was the very FIRST TIME I have even spoken publicly… But wait there is more… I also purposely prepared nothing ahead of time… I simply had faith that the heavens would be open and that the rains would come… And boy did they.

What happened after that microphone was placed in my hand is nothing short of a miracle, and I have been waiting five years for this moment. And I am so very happy to finally share it with all of you.

To go directly to the video, scroll down and watch on Youtube… I begin speaking around 38 minutes in. For more, information and the history of how this came to be… read on and then enjoy! Don’t forget to subscribe and share with the world. Love Jacob


Six months ago, (symbolically appropriate) as you know I began telling readers, friends, co-workers, and family, that this would be the year people began inviting me to share publicly what I have shared on-line for years.

I made this point publicly, documenting my belief such an EVENT was possible, without me ever having ask anyone to allow me to do so. I documented what would happen, as I have other things, as a great proof of sorts.

I explained this wonderfully in an essay called “Inspiration Rules” which I shared right before the New Year speaking of what would come in 2015.

“Jesus once said, if you don’t believe me… believe the works. Sort of like saying, if I tell you something is going to happen and then it happens maybe it’s time you start thinking outside of the prison of a box you are in.”

My life is an epistle if you will… to be read of all men. Because I know the things I have come to understand are life… These words are LIFE… this IS FREEDOM… you are MORE THAN YOU KNOW and can do ALL THINGS WITH FAITH.

And if you don’t believe me, if you don’t believe my words… BELIEVE THE WORKS… and by clicking this link you will indeed BELIEVE and enter into the realm of infinite possibility…


Please enjoy, and please do share this with others… I begin speaking at 38:00 minutes, but do encourage you to watch it all!

Special thanks to Jim Swilley, the Metron Community, and all those who were moved by the great spirit of love within them, that they paved the way for such a miracle to be performed. 🙂

Much love Jacob Israel




Have you ever heard the expression… “I turned the tables on them.” This is what my wife Danielle would remind me, is called an IDIOM.

Now, why would I take the time to point that out?

Well, the reason is found in the definition of what an IDIOM is.

IDIOM: a group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words.

That is sort of an educated way of saying… An Idiom is an expression used to describe something else, which cannot be understood literally. Like the expression, “its raining cats and dogs” — if you were to read this literally you would not understand that someone was simply expressing that it is RAINING HARD in a poetic way.

So, now that my English lesson is over, perhaps I should explain what this essay is about. An essay, mind you that I PROMISE to keep short. I have learned that people need short bursts of insight today and I hope to provide that to the ever-growing, ever-changing, multitasking generation of seekers that visit here and just don’t have the time to read a 20 page article.

So here it goes… This essay is about JESUS AND THE MONEY CHANGERS IN THE TEMPLE.

Let me briefly explain why I chose this topic.

For awhile now, for years, decades in fact, I have seen people condemn other people using the bible as not just ammunition but to justify their judgmental behavior. And one of the favorite stories in scripture used to explain away attacks on others is THE STORY OF JESUS IN THE TEMPLE.

It REALLY is so sad. Because these self-appointed judge, jury, and executioners that use such a story as ammunition to condemn, and tear down, others are MISSING THE MARK (sin) …. THAT’S RIGHT, I called them SINNERS. But not sinners the way you think. Because all “SIN” means really, is to MISS THE POINT, or to MISS THE TRUTH in regards to something.

Like thinking the EARTH IS FLAT — that would be A SIN. And the only way to be set free from this is the TRUTH. The TRUTH sets you free from the LIES you bought and sold in that temple of God, which is YOU.

In fact, proverbs states, “the thought of foolishness is sin” – yes, SIN is foolish thinking and nothing more.

THAT BEING SAID… it is down right sinful for people to shout the words love, unity, and freedom out of one side of their mouth while also tearing down people, gossiping, and condemning out of the other and using ALLEGORIES like Jesus and the Money Changers as excuse for their hate.

So, in this essay I am going to open your eyes to WHAT THE STORY REALLY MEANS… and how it is a PICTURE of an INTERNAL BEAUTIFUL WORK being done in us all, “as we speak” <- another idiom 🙂

So why did I TITLE this essay, TURNING THE TABLES? — well, you are about to find out.

If you want to understand what the expression "I turned the tables on them" has to do with Jesus and the money changers, then you will be happy to know that I believe it has EVERYTHING to do with that very biblical story. In fact, it is my belief that the TURNING OF THE MONEY CHANGERS TABLES in the TEMPLE is the birth place of the IDIOM "I turned the tables on them" itself.

Now just why is this important? you ask.

Well, look at the definition of the IDIOM: According the Oxford English Dictionary, if you “turn the tables” on someone, it is generally understood that you have reversed the fortunes in your favor to some capacity, so as to “reverse one’s position relative to someone else, especially by turning a position of disadvantage into one of advantage.”

"Reversed fortunes" could be explained in the allegory of the RICH and POOR man… when the TABLES are turned, the POOR man is taken care of and the RICH MAN is tormented. (of course this is not a story of a literal place called hell)

And so to "TURN THE TABLES" means you have reversed one's position, reversed one's direction, reversed one's decision, and of course reversed one's belief system. THIS IS THE STORY OF THE GOSPEL. The tables are turned on us. From DEATH to LIFE.

The TRUTH sets us free from the LIES we have believed. The TRUTH is revealed within us and it TURNS THE TABLES on us returning us to a place of peace, power, and perfection.

THUS, today with this essay I WILL TURN THE TABLES on those who have used this BEAUTIFUL STORY OF SALVATION as a story of condemnation, judgment, violence, and wrath… while also revealing some pretty cool insight about the Marriage in Cana of Galilee!

So, let us begin by reading the passage in John's gospel that started it all.

John 2
2 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. 4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. 5 His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. 7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. 8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. 9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, 10 And saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now.

Now that we have read all of that… please pay close attention to the verse below that follows this story excerpt above…

11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.


And what is it that BEGINS, Jacob?

THE BEGINNING OF MIRACLES… which ironically has nothing to do with what we know MIRACLES to be today. Seeing as the literal translation of MIRACLES in this passage means “a sign, mark, or token by which a PERSON is distinguished from others and is KNOWN.”

Miracle = shmeiÛon = a sign, mark, token that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from others and is known

And so the MARRIAGE is the BEGINNING of the SIGN that distinguishes the TRUTH from LIES and is REVEALED.

On the 3rd DAY (TRIMESTER) there was a marriage, and THE MOTHER of Jesus (the way, the truth and the life) was there.

Now, that is important because WHO IS JESUS’S MOTHER? – check out that article next. Well, the long and short of it is, ANYONE WHO HEARS THE TRUTH… and DOES THE WILL OF THE FATHER is Jesus’s MOTHER.

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

I hope you are catching on that this is an ALLEGORY for us all to learn.

Let us break down the story for a moment, 1st there is a Marriage where everyone wants WINE (which is a SPIRIT that makes one joyful), no such joyful spirit/wine is found, all anyone can find is SIX WATER POTS of STONE used for ritual washing. (to get clean from sin)…These water pots contained NO WATER…

Let me unravel this for you… the fact that there are only SIX WATER POTS OF STONE is our first give away. Seeing as SIX SIX SIX is the number of MAN, that MAN was MADE on the sixth day… The next give away is that they were WATER POTS OF STONE.

Water pots of STONE is a mysterious way of describing man’s heart… STONE is what the LAW is written on. Tablets of Stone or one could say “TABLES of STONE”.

You see a STONE doesn’t bend, it is rough, callous, unforgiving, and this my friends was found at the marriage in Cana. And what was it that was being married?

Ezekiel 36:26
A new heart also will I give you, and a new SPIRIT (thoughts of truth) will I put (reveal) WITHIN you: and I will take away the STONY HEART out of your FLESH, and I will give you an heart of flesh

SPIRIT AND SOUL/FLESH/IDENTITY is married — Just like that water being poured in, the TRUTH is poured into you… because FAITH COMES BY HEARING… and things change.

Joel 2:28
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh

The TWO become ONE.

And when this happens, first MEN’S HEARTS are AS STONE … which is why the TABLES NEED TO BE TURNED… which is REALLY what this whole Chapter is about. Not a literal marriage, not a madman condemning religion, and not a bunch a people wanting to get drunk and Jesus changing literal water into literal wine. THIS IS AN INSIDE WORK. And the TABLES need to be turned. For men’s hearts are stone. And this is the way it is in the BEGINNING. But when the tables are turned, so DOES ONE’S POSITION IN LIFE return. If they be dead… they come alive again!

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

AND if a man’s heart be stone the TRUTH will flip the script and breathe new life into them all.

2 Corinthians 3:3
Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.

This is what is revealed in the WATER being poured in first.

We see the SIX BARREN WATER POTS OF STONE (ignorant mankind – dead in Adam), and Jesus says, FILL THEM UP!

It is important to note, that he first states… “HIS HOUR IS NOT YET COME.” And why is that? Because this is ONLY THE BEGINNING, so HOLD ONTO YOUR SEATS because you haven’t seen anything yet.

John 1:
50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these. 51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

And so Jesus says, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. Which is a picture of the moment our hearts are FILLED WITH THE WATER OF TRUTH… Once again, we are not talking about literal water. It is WISDOM.

John 4:14
But whosoever drinketh of the WATER that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

AND AGAIN… the water is the WORD OF GOD which is TRUTH.

Ephesians 5:26
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of WATER by the WORD


But remember, this is but the beginning. At the “marriage” which of course is an ALLEGORY OF the TWO BECOMING ONE FLESH.

Let that sink in… A MARRIAGE is where TWO BECOME ONE FLESH.

Ephesians 5:31
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

YES, THAT IS RIGHT! This whole story is about GOD and MAN becoming ONE.

This is what JESUS prayed for after all.

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

Jesus saying, “I am in the father and the Father is in me” would be a good way of describing this event. My latest article that compares the SUBCONSCIOUS MIND and the CONSCIOUS MIND with God and Jesus is another way of expressing it. At this MARRIAGE the SPIRIT OF TRUTH becomes ONE with WHO WE THINK WE ARE (our identity).

And so this ALLEGORICAL marriage party is expressing how this resurrection and union begins. It begins with us being filled to the BRIM with the TRUTH. Which in turn becomes a LIVING SPIRIT within us. And yes that is exciting, BUT this is ONLY THE BEGINNING!

The TRUTH in us, then has a job to do… IT FIRST BEGINS TO REVEAL THE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN HIDDEN from our eyes. Notice, verse 11.

11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him.

The TRUTH manifested (revealed) “his glory” – and it is the GLORY OF GOD to conceal a thing.

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

In the beginning the TRUTH MANIFESTS what has been concealed (glory) before the marriage of SPIRIT (who you really are) and FLESH (who you think you are) and after that happens THOSE THAT FOLLOW THE TRUTH (disciples) BELIEVE!

And once you believe the TRUTH, it is TIME FOR THE LIES to be CAST OUT OF YOUR HEART! Which brings us to JESUS and those TABLES BEING TURNED. Not an event to justify grievous acts towards others, but a poetic mystery explaining our resurrection into the light of truth and life.

Let us continue…

12 After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.

It is interesting to note that CAPERNAUM literally means “VILLAGE OF COMFORT”.

You see we have been too comfortable in our ignorance. At the wedding the people LOVED JESUS (the truth) because it TURNED the WATER (THEIR DOCTRINE) into WINE (AN INTOXICATING SPIRIT)… But Jesus was honest… HIS TIME had NOT YET COME. Jesus still had work to do. THE TRUTH needs to TURN THE TABLES on us all! And this is EXACTLY what takes place when the TRUTH hits us in the heart to set us free.

It is important to note that THIS ALL TOOK PLACE when PASSOVER was at hand. Which is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the LIBERATION OF THE SLAVES from EGYPT.

13 And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Which, of course is another wonderful allegory… as EGYPT is a person’s confusion, which is why GOD’S CHILDREN live as slaves and need to be delivered from it. In Galatians 3 and 4 we read that the HEIR differs nothing from a slave when he is immature/young even though HE IS LORD OF EVERYTHING.

This is so true, before the truth is raised up in our hearts we are men most miserable indeed. We all live a most pitiful life when we are as empty barren waterpots of stone… And after the beginning of miracles (the sign, the distinguishing mark that sets us apart from the word), we find the PASSOVER is near.

Yes my friends, we are indeed are about to be set free from our SHAME AND FEAR… just as the JEWS were set free from PHAROAH (shame) and EGYPT (confusion)

Isaiah 30:3
Therefore shall the strength of Pharaoh be your SHAME, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt your CONFUSION.

Passover was at hand… People were about to be delivered from their SHAME and CONFUSION. And for that to HAPPEN, the things that were polluting our hearts NEED to be driven out.


And so, the TRUTH (Jesus) goes down to Capernaum(place of COMFORTABLE IGNORANCE) and FINDS the TEMPLE OF GOD… (POINT TO YOUR TEMPLES, what is between them — YOUR MIND) – and within mankind’s thoughts were beasts of burden being bought, sold, and sacrificed.

14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

You see, in the Temple RELIGION has set up shop. And that doesn’t jive well with THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE.

If I have said this once, I have said this a thousand times… THE LETTER/LITERAL kills…. the SPIRIT gives life.

And so we have come full circle… because for years religious people have LITERALLY KILLED others in the name of their “god” using the following verses to back their actions up. That’s right, even today, I see people everywhere… Christians, Universalists, New Though, Oneness, and New Agers alike using these next verses to prove that they have EVERY RIGHT to JUDGE AND CONDEMN ANOTHER!


15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

And so I want to put an end, for once and all, of the EGO in the religious man USING the story of Jesus turning over the money changers tables, and chasing those that SOLD sacrifices in the Temple with a whip, as an EXCUSE to be a real condemning jerk to all those they ignorantly believes knows less.

No, those who tear down others and use such an event as ammunition for their attack, are not only “NOT AN AUTHORITY” on such things BUT they are the farthest thing from the truth themselves. Instead, the CONDEMNERS are insecure people who want to trick themselves into feeling better about themselves by condemning, and ruling over others. And in using this story as an excuse to bash others, they in fact prove how far removed from God (love, truth, spirit, inspiration, existence) they really are.

For if you say you know God and do not completely love others the same is a liar and a thief.

1 John 4:20
If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar:

The story of Jesus clearing the Temple is not an excuse to attack others and force people to see things your way… God forbid… It is an ALLEGORY of BEING CLEANSED of all the LIES YOU HAVE BOUGHT AND SOLD over the years.

Consider where the whole scene TAKES place… THE TEMPLE

1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

The TRUTH finds that within the TEMPLE is nothing but LIES… Sheep, Oxen, and Money (all symbolic of Beasts of Burden bought and sold for the only thing we put our faith in today….MONEY)

On one literal level we ironically see this in the natural as well… Step into the outer court/lobby of any Church or Temple and you will find books, oils, dvd’s, coffee, and other such MERCHANDISE sold for FILTHY MONEY. Let’s face THE GOD BUSINESS is BIG BUSINESS… and we have ALL been slaves to it… BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT THIS STORY IS ABOUT.

After the MARRIAGE of SPIRIT AND FLESH, after the TWO BECOME ONE, after the HEARTS OF STONE are filled with LIFE, the TABLES ARE TURNED… and we rise from DEATH TO LIFE. And for this to take place, we must first SWEEP THE HOUSE CLEAN.

So I pray you are beginning to see that this isn’t a LITERAL STORY but an ALLEGORY. Here is the reason, if I were to go in like a madman and scream, “you have turned my Father’s house into a DEN OF THIEVES (which according to scripture, a thief is anyone who tries to enter the kingdom through ANY OTHER WAY THAN the straight gate (truth)) … I would be arrested.

And what is a DEN OF THIEVES… Well, a THIEF is anyone who doesn’t enter through that straight and narrow gate of TRUTH. A thief is someone who takes something that wasn’t theirs as well.

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

The Thief in this case would be man’s EGO. And this THIEF comes to STEAL AND DESTROY…

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.

An interesting side note here… who was JESUS crucified in between? DING DING DING… that is right, TWO THIEVES. The double minded man is unstable in all his ways. — And what kind of man would that be… well, a double minded man is one who sees things as GOOD and EVIL.

And yet, right there in between the duality of it all… IS CHRIST (the power and wisdom of God) driving the LIES out of our hearts.

Now let’s consider, if Jesus literally cleared house and that gives me the right to do such a thing… IF I did what JESUS supposedly, literally did in that temple I would most likely be arrested. I would be called a madman and tried as a criminal and rightly so. Because violence and breaking the laws of the land is a clear violation of the law of love (which is actually what this story is about)

THIS PARABLE IS NOT ABOUT JUSTIFYING YOUR WRATH ON THOSE WHO BELIEVE DIFFERENTLY! And how do we know this for sure? Well, the revelation comes in this final verse where Jesus answered and said unto them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.” (John 2:19 KJV)

And goes onto to explain that the “Temple” that the TRUTH TURNED THE TABLES ON was… “HIS BODY” (All of us)

This whole allegory FROM WEDDING TO TABLE TURNING is a picture of what happens to us the moment our soul marries the spirit of life… (Who we think we are becomes one with Who we really are within)

After the lights go on within us, THE ONLY WAY TO TRULY LIVE YOUR LIFE (Christ) drives out all the lies, and destroys our faith in money and man-made tradition, and we realize that the FATHER’S HOUSE (who we think we are) is in fact meant to be a place of peace, prayer, encouragement, and joy… not a MARKETPLACE of DEN OF THIEVES

THE TABLES ARE TURNED on us all… They have indeed been turned on me.

And after our whole religious world is TURNED upside down, we realize that the OLD MAN (filled with fear, lies, and shame) needs to be torn down so the NEW MAN can rise in its stead… TEAR DOWN THIS TEMPLE AND IN THREE DAYS I WILL RAISE IT UP AGAIN.

All symbolic of being BORN AGAIN (a trimester) as the REAL YOU.

And why did the disciples remember the scripture that states, the ZEAL OF YOUR HOUSE has eaten me up?

17 And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

People have taught that it means JESUS WAS PASSIONATE and ANGRY at those who DID SUCH THINGS in the LITERAL TEMPLE… However, the reason the disciples remembered this is because THEY EXPERIENCED THIS…

They experienced THE REPROACHES OF OTHERS had fallen off them. REALLY READ the psalm they remembered and it should open your eyes to IRONY of it all. THE VERY STORY that people use to justify their DISAPPROVAL of others, is in fact, the story that SETS US FREE from SUCH REPROACH.

Look at what FALLS OFF THEM…

Psalm 69:9
For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

When the LIES that we have bought and sold are cast out of our hearts. Then we are FREE INDEED! And when we are free, it doesn’t matter how many people attack us, or tear us down… you see, their REPROACH simply falls away.

So please don’t use the scriptures to condemn another, use them, as I have just used them to SET PEOPLE FREE FROM THE REPROACH AND LIES of the world. (lusts of flesh, lust of eyes, and pride of life)

I want to share something quite profound with all of you. I really want you all to hear what the spirit (inspiration) is saying here, because it could be the very thing that helps you to finally live a fulfilled and wondrous life. This will be a much shorter essay, as I felt I needed to keep this brief for those who are not yet hungry enough to invest a great deal of time.

Today, I kept hearing two scriptures again and again in my head. “Faith comes by hearing” was the first. Followed by, “with Faith all things are possible.” Now, some of you may have caught that already. But for those that are just coming to the morning light that is being shined abroad let me expound on this for you because it truly is a remarkable and extremely important revelation for such a time as this.

So let’s begin with the first part, how our faith is formed.

Romans 10:17
So then FAITH comes by HEARING…

Simply stated, we BELIEVE the things we HEAR again and again.

For example, if we are told black is white and white is black… that becomes our reality. Even though ultimately, black or white are simply words we attach to our experience. There is neither in reality. But that is for another day.

FAITH COMES BY HEARING… why is this important? some may ask.

The reason is, our lives are being shaped by our faith, and our FAITH is formed by what we FIRST HEAR. Not just auditory hearing of course, as we can HEAR our thoughts within.

A rudimentary example of this is to understand why children believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. It is because they first HEARD SUCH. FAITH comes by hearing. The same can be said for those who believe in demons and devils… Not because they ever experienced such, but because they first heard of such and then had faith in such, and so a world where spooky evil lurks becomes their experience.

However, this concept goes much deeper. YOU ARE WHAT YOU BELIEVE ABOUT YOURSELF. In addition, WHAT YOU BELIEVE ABOUT YOURSELF IS WHAT YOU HAVE FIRST HEARD. (whether from the lips of others, your own, or the thoughts swimming in your head) Whichever words YOU HEAR (focus your attention on) forms the FAITH that what you “hear” is your reality… and so YOUR REALITY BECOMES.

As a child if you are told that you are no good again and again. You will begin to have FAITH that YOU ARE NO GOOD. This is why people must understand that SHAME and FEAR are not good teachers. If you don’t want children who misbehave, STOP TELLING YOUR CHILDREN THEY MISBEHAVE!

Now the opposite is also true… If a child hears again and again that he or she is loved and highly favored, that child will have FAITH that he, or she, is loved and highly favored… and “works” shall follow.


This is why it is so important to bridle our tongues. The tongue seems to be the smallest muscle but it is quite powerful. So much so, that the scriptures state, “the power of life and death is in the tongue.”

NOW, WHY IS THAT? Why, is the power of life and death in the tongue?

Well, my friends, the answer is simple… because FAITH COMES BY HEARING… and with FAITH ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE… so, whatever you hear again and again you WILL BEGIN TO PUT FAITH IN… which in turn has the POWER TO MANIFEST THAT IN YOUR WORLD… and all of that starts with the TONGUE (either spoken words, or written words, or thoughts)

Faith comes by hearing… With Faith all things are possible.

This is why, I SAY again and again what will be… and again and again IT BECOMES. This is why I SPEAK the desire of my heart, so I can HEAR what is being said, so I can then believe such a thing is not only possible, but REALITY…. and since “with Faith ALL THINGS are possible” – whatever it is I have focused on BECOMES!

I am not a psychic, I don’t hear from some far away God who speaks to me, I hear what inspiration within me has to say… and what it is saying I THEN REPEAT… OUT LOUD… FOR EVERYONE… INCLUDING MYSELF to HEAR!

And when I hear the words that I speak, somewhere along the line, regardless of how seemingly impossible such a feat sounds to be, I begin to believe it. I begin to put my FAITH in it. And with FAITH ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE! Which is why, the things I say will happen… HAPPEN!

I would be lying if I SAID I HAVE SEEN ONLY the good manifested in my life. You see, I ignorantly have created some terrible and awful experiences for myself, and for others. And during those times, I did not see that I WAS THE ONE to blame. I would tell everyone how terrible things were, and why wouldn’t I, because (I believed) that was my experience. Instead, of seeing that it was only because I BELIEVED such terrible things that it BECAME MY EXPERIENCE.

Thankfully, I also spoke LIFE from this faucet that at times would spout DEATH. And soon, I learned to SPEAK AND THINK ONLY ON THE GOOD! Because that is a KEY TO HEAVEN ITSELF.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

And soon the WORDS OF DEATH I once ignorantly spoke were swallowed up in the WORDS OF LIFE that I HEARD and HAD FAITH IN, which in turn created the LIFE I am sharing with you today.


Isaiah 45:7
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

Side note: the word “Lord” means “the one who exists”

So, it can also be said … I form the light (life, joy, peace, wisdom), and the darkness (death, fear, chaos, ignorance) – I MAKE PEACE AND CREATE EVIL… because FAITH COMES BY HEARING, and what we hear and begin to believe becomes… because with FAITH ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.

Now, with all of that being said. I want to get to the cross (point) of this article.


This whole essay began with as a simple Facebook post. As I wrote more, and my fingers frantically typed away as if inspired by something higher and greater than myself, this essay you are reading now took shape.

So let me continue by taking you to Matthew 6:22 which states, ” The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.”

There is a huge KEY hidden in this verse. It is the key to a peaceful and fulfilled life. This great truth hidden right there under our noses.

I sure hope the “spirit” of what I share, opens your EYE to the LIFE within us all…. Please pay attention to this next line.

The LIGHT of the BODY is the EYE!

Please grab hold of us, by connecting the two below.

The LIGHT of the BODY is the EYE. The EYE is the LIGHT OF THE BODY.

LIGHT=EYE=YOU (lights of the world)

You are LIGHTS in this world… And that LIGHT comes from the EYE… But the EYE is not the LITERAL EYE as you have been told. It is not the PINEAL gland as some might say. It is not the THIRD EYE as some might say. THE EYE is the LIGHT of the BODY. And it is much more than what you are using to read these words.

The EYE very clearly is an allegory for a PERSON’S PERCEPTION

However, don’t take my word for it. Let us go to the literal translation of the word ‘EYE” in this passage. Here is the literal translation below.

EYE: o)fqalmo/v — metaphor. the eyes of the mind, the faculty of knowing

So, clearly, the EYE is the faculty of KNOWING. And what you KNOW is what you PERCEIVE/understand/judge things to be.

Here is an accurate definition of “Perception” – Perception is the way we interpret information


How you PERCEIVE things determines whether or not that LIGHT (which YOU really are, which is YOUR LIFE) SHINES or NOT.

Only when you understand why “your eye should be SINGLE”, and what “YOUR EYE BEING SINGLE” really means… will you begin to see the more beautiful picture.

The word “SINGLE”: a(plou=v – literally translates into “WHOLE, COMPLETE, FULFILLING IT’S OFFICE, SOUND in UNDERSTANDING”

So we find a more excellent understanding of this misunderstood passage of scripture.


– I will share the scripture and then reveal the “spirit” behind the words if you will. And IF you put to practice what you learn here… IF you being to see your life through a different EYE, a SINGLE eye, an EYE that sees one’s life as perfect, complete and lacking nothing… then you will have LIFE INDEED.

And to do this first we must understand, that WHERE OUR TREASURE is there our HEART (mind) is also.

Matthew 6
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

THE physical HEART sustains our PHYSICAL LIFE. So metaphorically, as it pertains to our SPIRITUAL LIFE, the HEART is in this instance is OUR MIND.

Whatever we value (treasure) reveals our heart (mind/what we think).

Let me explain this further… whatever we give the most attention to (our treasure) becomes what sustains the life of that “treasure” in our lives. Meaning, what we believe becomes our experience. What we focus our attention on is our treasure. What we value the most and focus on the most is soon manifested in the world. Good or bad.

So, whatever OUR EYE be on, whether that be LIGHT or DARK, becomes our LIFE EXPERIENCE.

Because the LIGHT/LIFE of the BODY is the EYE (OUR PERCEPTION)

So, where our treasure is… whatever we VALUE… whatever we pay the most attention too… BECOMES (because it is then revealed to the world AS OUR LIFE (whether dark or light, wrong or right, filled or lacking, peaceful or chaotic)

Now, treasure is NOT just what you WANT FROM LIFE as you have been told….

Treasure, is what you VALUE the most in each and every moment, of each and every day.

So, you see, TREASURE does not have to be a good thing. You can TREASURE THE ROSE PEDALS or the THORNS. And what you treasure you will speak about, and hear again and again, and what you hear will turn into faith, and your faith can create anything and everything YOU TREASURE.


Many ignorantly “treasure” their misery.

And when you tell the SUFFERER that they VALUE and TREASURE their SUFFERING and then get angry and tell you, “go to hell!” remember, THEY CANNOT SEE THIS… because THEY ARE IN DARKNESS, great darkness. And DARKNESS is ignorance.

23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

It is impossible for anyone to see that they value their misery, IF THEY ARE MISERABLE… because that is what they TREASURE at that moment.

In addition, until their EYE BE SINGLE… until they begin to SEE that THEIR LIFE is FULL, PERFECT, LACKING NOTHING, and that WHERE THEIR HEART IS defines their LIFE EXPERIENCE they cannot feel fulfilled, perfect or whole.

If their EYE… If their PERCEPTION is that their LIFE is LACKING… this is what they will experience… BECAUSE THEY VALUE IT ENOUGH TO CONTINUE GOING ON AND ON AND ON ABOUT IT.


So, you see, there is a much-needed word within these simple passages for us all to lay hold of.

In closing, in what, is perhaps my shortest essay to date, which I know is not that short after all… I would like to break down these three verse so you too can allow your EYE to be SINGLE WITH ME.

Matthew 6:21-23
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also

(What ever you FOCUS ON, whatever you VALUE enough to THINK about and SPEAK about is your treasure. And where your treasure is, there your heart will be.



22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.




23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

HOWEVER, if your PERCEPTION is that your LIFE is NOT COMPLETE, NOT FULFILLED and LACKING then you will become IGNORANT of the fact THAT IT IS NOT!

If you only dwell on (value/treasure) misfortune then misfortune becomes the life you live, and you will be blind to the fact that IT NEVER HAS BEEN.


In closing, I simply ask… to LET YOUR EYE BE SINGLE… and see what happens next.

PERCEIVE YOUR LIFE as FULFILLED, COMPLETE, AND LACKING NOTHING and you will enter the kingdom of heaven before those with their eye on evil all the time.

FAITH COMES BY HEARING… so speak life!

Finger of God


Recently, a new Facebook friend of mine who I believe has some interesting insight has been testing me, to see if I knew what he knew. The test revolved around the woman caught in the act of adultery. The questions were as follows, who was the woman, who was the man that she was caught with, why did they not bring the man to condemn him, who were those prepared to stone the adulterous woman, what did Jesus write in the ground, and what did Jesus use to write these words… I know, that’s a tall order. And yet, I always try to give every man an answer. We are instructed to be in, and out of, season always when it comes to the “word of truth”. Now, just to be clear that doesn’t mean that you have to use scripture to answer a person. Because the TRUTH is written already in the hearts of those who have woken up. However, some people believe that if you cannot answer them using scripture you don’t know the “Lord”. I learned many years ago that I would have to be a bridge of sorts. And so, as the disciples were called to minister to certain groups of people, it could be said I am here for those who have been raised on the scriptures. So when someone tests me about the scriptures I must be ready to use those scriptures to lead them to the truth that is within us all.

Luke 6:30 – Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

Over the years I have had many pastors, bishops, priests, evangelists, gurus, and religious leaders in about every denomination and school of thought possible cross my path. Some of them, I have grown quiet fond of and still fellowship with to this very day. And then there are others who offer nothing but complaint, ridicule, threats, tests, demands and the like. Now, this new friend is not like the latter but it would have been easy for me to judge him as such and cast him, and possibly what he had to offer, away with a click of a mouse. However, I am patient and it takes a whole lot to provocation to move me away from those engaging me.

I have learned not to be upset by those who tear down what they don’t yet understand. The reason is, most who get angry at the things I share are operating out of a place of insecurity. The TRUTH cannot be offended, and it doesn’t need to be defended. So when people get upset and angry and go into attack mode when they see something I share they disagree with, it is usually because the truth within my words has stirred something inside them that their ego does not want revealed.

John 3:20
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

So I am not easily offended or put off when people cross my path with questions or tests. Instead, I continue on in a cordial fashion even after they turn their words to cursing and ridicule, because I know good things can come out of such back and forth… eventually.

Our words have power and if our words be truth when we share them, even with those who cannot yet hear them, they will begin to grow inside and produce the very same revelation within.

Isaiah 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

With that being said, I want everyone to know that I continue to seek the TRUTH. I do not believe I have somehow arrived and that there is nothing left to learn. I also know that one day I may see that what I know to be true today may not be true tomorrow. We must be open minded and allow the spirit of truth to lead us. We cannot build our own kingdom in this world on a belief system that was never meant to stand forever. In other words, just as we evolve physically, we also evolve spiritually, so we must not become too prideful thinking WE KNOW BEST. We must instead continue to seek the word of truth and TEST THE SPIRITS to see whether they be of God or not.

The instant we say, I KNOW IT ALL… is the beginning of OUR FALL!

Proverbs 16:18
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

We see people killing in the name of God all the time. Not here in the states, but in far away countries who have different laws. Don’t think people in this country would not do the same, if the law of the land weren’t to keep them from doing so.

I truly believe that if we did not have the laws we have in place right now, it would be like the wild west all over again. People will KILL and DESTROY anything that threatens their precious “Carnal Ego”. It was done years ago and it would happen again if things were different. People would cut off another’s head in the name of “Jesus” just as quickly as some we have seen doing this in the name of “Mohammed”.

If you don’t believe me look up the crusades, the KKK, Hitler, and many other Carnal Ego possessed “Christians” who have done horrifying things in the name of God.

Let’s take that a step farther, when any country goes to war, they state “God” is on their side and to this day many religious leaders will lead a nation in prayer about winning this war…. My point with all of this is, is there is not a huge leap that needs to be taken from threats, condemnation, judgment and debate in the name of God, to killing in the name of God….


And this my friends, is why I think it is appropriate for me to share the answers I gave to this precious man who tested me awhile ago.

The story of the adulterous woman indeed shows how the power of love, truth, and faith can overcome the blood thirsty lust of those who simply WANT TO BE RIGHT.

Let me remind you, the moment we shut the door to the possibility that there is more for us to learn we lose much more than what we pridefully thought we knew to begin with.

The one who says their cup is filled and needs no more, is the one that will never has a cup that is overflowing.

Now we are called to be both MASTER and SERVANT. But not a wicked Master, who rules treacherously and demands service, money, and attention from those he rules over. But a MASTER SERVANT.

In scripture, the GREATEST OF ALL IS THE SERVANT OF ALL! That my friends is THE MASTER in this world. One who lays down their life (their desires) for those they serve.

In fact scripture declares this.

Philippians 2:5-7
5 LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU, which was also in Christ Jesus….
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But MADE HIMSELF OF NO REPUTATION, and took upon him the FORM OF A SERVANT, and was made in the likeness of men:

Many today claim to “further the gospel”… and yet all they seem to do is go about it by making a REPUTATION for themselves. The EGO of man wants attention, fame, fortune, influence… YET, this is NOT the mind of a true servant.

A servant does not care who knows his name. A servant does not desire to have others bow down before him or her. A SERVANT FINDS JOY IN SERVICE ALONE.

Many skip over the part in the above passage where it states, Jesus “MADE HIMSELF OF NO REPUTATION”

Many times after Jesus healed someone, or performed a miracle he also instructed… “GO NOW AND TELL NO ONE OF WHAT I HAVE DONE” — Of course, this is not what would happen, as those he healed would immediately go and tell everyone. However, it does not take away from the lesson that is found here. A great miracle is performed, and Jesus says…

Matthew 8:4
And Jesus saith unto him, See thou TELL NO MAN; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

A SERVANT does not desire fame or fortune. A servant desires to SERVE. The more the servant is allowed to serve, the greater the joy this servant receives.

Matthew 10:44,45
44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
45 For even the Son of man came NOT to be ministered unto, BUT TO MINISTER, and to give his life a ransom for many.

A servant doesn’t need people to make them feel like a King or Queen, a servant makes himself or herself of no reputation. GIVING THEIR LIVES AS A RANSOM FOR ALL THEY SERVE.

NOW, there is a revelation for you waiting in that word “RANSOM”

That word RANSOM literally translates from the word origin “To loose from bonds” – and translates into English as “to liberate many from misery” — and isn’t that what the true SERVANT OF GOD (Love, Truth, Power, Spirit, Life) does?

Now this doesn’t mean to be a servant you cannot also have a position of authority, or name, or even fame… The true Kings and Judges of God in the Old testament were also called Servants. Servants, HOWEVER, do not follow after selfish gain, servants instead follow after peace, compassion, love.

Everyone of God’s chosen were called his SERVANTS! “O ye seed of Abraham his servant” – “But thou, Israel, art my servant”, – He called David his servant, – AND YES JESUS TOO

Matthew 12:18
BEHOLD MY SERVANT, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

And SERVANTS as meant to SERVE. Servants are meant to pick up the work given to them and accomplish their task, without complaint, without fear, and without anger. Michael never brought a railing accusation against Satan. Job never cursed God. David prayed out of the belly of hell. Joseph always kept his eye on the prize and never let his circumstances dictate his mood. The disciples sang praises in jail. And I don’t even have time to write about ever other servant of God who faced hardship before accomplishing the task at hand.

We are the children of the Kingdom, but more importantly we are SERVANTS OF THE MOST HIGH (the spirit of love and truth, the inspiration and creator of all that is and is not). And servants are meant to serve.

We are instructed to think THIS WAY… To not think higher of ourselves than others. To make ourselves of no reputation and to be in the FORM and FUNCTION of a SERVANT.

And a servant SERVES people, they don’t complain or tear down those they are serving.

Philippians 2:5-7
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

A good parent is a great example of a good servant. A parent would lay down their life for their CHILD’S life. And so will the SERVANTS in the land.

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.


1 John 3:16
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

This means, we don’t need to hear the words “I’m sorry”. We don’t need others to suffer after they spitefully use us. We forgive. And to forgive means WE LET IT ALL GO AND RELEASE OUR ACCUSERS AND condemners OF ANY DEBT THEIR ACTIONS COULD HAVE CAUSED US.

tHIS IS A HARD SAYING INDEED… and one, I myself continue to strive for. As must we all.

SADLY, today, the expression… Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. is well-practiced in the land.

For who can say truly that they LOVE THEIR ENEMY?

It is common practice today to KILL YOUR ENEMY with war, or words. This war rages everywhere, in the battlefield, in the governments, in the media, in society, and yes SOCIAL NETWORKS as well… Many religious people, who declare themselves far from religion will quickly take up arms to defend or attack anyone who disagrees with them.

This my friends is the very cause of all the great suffering in the land.

SERVANTS ARE MEANT TO LOVE, LOVE, LOVE even those that hate them.

Matthew 5:44
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you

If we would only practice what we preached, this world would change before our very eyes. If we would only show the light of truth and love to those lost in the darkness of pride and ego the STONES would be released from their grips and NO ONE WOULD BE LEFT TO CONDEMN THEM.

In closing, I would like to simply reveal a deeper meaning found in the story of the woman caught in the act of adultery.

You all have heard the story, Jesus was writing in the ground beneath him, when the religious leaders came to him to tempt him. They brought a woman who was caught in the act of adultery, of course they didn’t bring the “man” to stone him (but there is a lesson in that as well)… They brought up the Mosaic law and said, what should we do? To tempt him.

Please re-read these verses to familiarize yourself with the story before continuing.

John Chapter 8
1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.
2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?
6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Let me break down the meaning for you line by line, to see the beauty that is hidden within this ALLEGORY

Verse 2, we find it is EARLY IN THE MORNING… this means the SUN (truth) HAS JUST RISEN… an allegory of the truth just beginning to shine it’s light in the hearts of men and women everywhere. Notice the scripture states ALL people came to him…

Now when the TRUTH is revealed, we begin to understand that we must NOT JUDGE OTHERS, or condemn others. Many people don’t like this. So they look high and low for reasons to still tear down others and condemn others (to feel better about themselves).

This is exactly what the scribes and Pharisees were doing by bringing the “woman taken in adultery” to Jesus’ feet to condemn.


The answer is YOU, YOU, YOU, AND YOU… You are every character in this story, and every character is you.

Many don’t see the whole story, this WOMAN is a symbol of our SOUL (sense of being). I want to first point out that the WOMAN WAS NOT CAUGHT IN THE ACT OF ADULTERY… the scripture states… she was TAKEN — brought unto him a woman taken in adultery;

The literal meaning of the word TAKEN here means “to lay hold off” “to lay hold of to lay hold of so as to make one’s own, to obtain,”

This is important to understand, because we ALL were TAKEN by religion. We were tricked into becoming it’s adulterous woman if you will. In addition, adultery has less to do with having relations with a man or woman outside of a person’s marriage and more to do with “cheating on the truth with lies”

Let me briefly explain further, ADULTERY is a symbol of “CHEATING ON THE TRUTH” — meaning, you have MISSED THE MARK… adultery is leaving your TRUE SPOUSE (GOD, TRUTH, LOVE, INSPIRATION, PEACE, UNITY) for another.

Scripture reveals that those who commit adultery “LACK UNDERSTANDING” and destroy their OWN SOUL.

Proverbs 6:32
But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

We find in many places in scripture that to commit adultery really has nothing to do with cheating on a husband or wife, but has to do with following after, and worshiping IDOLS (lies)

Hosea 4:13
They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery.

We begin to see the allegory played out in the lives of literal marriages… Just as it is devastating to cheat on a true relationship, it is more so to cheat of THE TRUTH…

Ezekiel 23:37
That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery

Now, with that being said, isn’t it interesting that the WOMAN TAKEN with adultery… was ACTUALLY “in the midst” of the PHARISEES? Her fate was in their hands, they condemned her, abused her, used her, and wanted to STONE HER!

This is our story too people… When the SUN (light of truth) began to rise, we were brought before the truth, ashamed of who we were, abused by those who said “they know better” … in their eyes, leaving their religion would also be an act of adultery and for this she was condemned to die.

The STONES they were going to use, are more than LITERAL STONES… The law was written on STONE… And yet, the TRUTH could get those stones to sing if need be, and that is exactly what Jesus did here. People today love to pick up their stones and stone others that they say are incorrect.

But Jesus, pretended not to hear their request… he continued to write in the GROUND with his FINGER —

This too is very symbolic, love DOESN’T listen to such nonsense.

The FINGER is a symbol of much more, as is the ground he wrote upon…

Ironically, God wrote into the STONES with his finger once before… and now Jesus writes in the ground.

Luke 11:20
But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.


When ONCE the finger of GOD wrote on TABLETS of STONE… now we see a picture of JESUS writing with his finger in THE GROUND. (hearts of man)

Proverbs 7:3
Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.

The GROUND that JESUS was writing in was the GOOD GROUND — the HEARTS of those with ears to HEAR!

Luke 8:15
But that on the good GROUND are they, which in an HONEST AND GOOD HEART, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.

Notice, how after JESUS wrote in the ground, he immediately ROSE UP and spoke to them… 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Immediately, after he stooped back down and continued WRITING IN THE GROUND… 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

It was then that HIS WORDS WERE HEARD… Not just by the woman, but by the religious elite as well. In that moment, the TRUTH of love hit them smack dab in the middle of their heart, and they realized they could no longer condemn the woman, or anyone else for that matter. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

The WOMAN was delivered from RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION as we have been delivered.

The story begins with the adulterous woman standing in the midst of the Pharisees… 3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, and the story ends with the WOMAN no longer called an adulterous, no longer condemned STANDING IN THE MIDST OF JESUS… and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

AND THEN THE PRECIOUS WORDS ARE HEARD… 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

When we are delivered from religion, we realize NO ONE IS LEFT TO CONDEMN US! So there is no need for us to SIN (THINK FOOLISHLY) ANYMORE!

11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

And now we come full circle and realize that when the LIGHT OF THE WORLD RISES IN OUR HEART… Life and peace waits for us all!

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Ironically, this was the answer I had given to the man who challenged me… he told me that I DID NOT GET IT… that God had not revealed the truth to me yet… The irony is, when I finally got his answer, which was a beautiful answer indeed… mine and his were not mutually exclusive, as they both dealt with the power of love.

There are many sides to TRUTH my friends, don’t get stuck on your side, evolve to, and explore every side and you will be counted rich in spirit indeed.
