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…

Unity.

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.

BEHOLD MY FLOCK

“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!”

RADICAL FAITH

FAITH MAKES YOU WHOLE

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?

FAITH!

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?

FAITH!

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!

LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY


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

LAND OF MILK AND HONEY

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read Acts 2, you will see Peter says…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And what GLORIFIES GOD people? Read on.

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

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

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

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

The CLOUDS are the WITNESSES of TRUTH.

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

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

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

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

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

When you find this out… THEN YOU ARE SAVED!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let’s first look at Honey:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

AND NOW FOR THE MILK!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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