A WARNING TO EVERYONE!
THE TRUMPET SOUNDS!
Seriously… please do read this and share this far and wide if you feel the same.
Bare with me everyone because for many what I am going to SHARE may sound a bit crazy… But I promise you, I am of sound mind. (I know all crazy people say that… right? … Well, I am not one of them.)
I do know this post will sound out of place on my site here. I have never been one to share gloom and doom. And I am NOT starting now.
So I am fully aware that what I am about to share may be a bit out of the ordinary, but today I am very much in agreement with “Inspiration” that what I am going to share MUST be shared.
And this is only the first post on this.
Tomorrow, a video most likely will follow, and if what I feel in my heart is true, then I expect many more dreams and visions and ideas on the subject to give me plenty of material over the next couple of weeks.
You have to understand, I am NOT a conspiracy guy. I had no idea of what was going on in conspiracy chats or blogs or whatever, about military exercises, peace deals, climate warnings, or even a comet that might hit the earth before recently. But I DO know, that I was woke up last night inspired once again, with something new to say.
That being said, I have learned from experience to listen and to simply act upon what I am inspired to share, ONLY AFTER I know without a shadow of a doubt that I MUST SHARE IT.
So here it goes,
For months now I have been telling others by September 15 there is going to be a huge change in my life, possibly the world.
My wife, my colleagues, friends close to me, and other spiritual men and women I know on here will attest to this.
So try and follow me here…
Last couple of nights I have had dreams and ideas/visions that I should start telling people that now is the time to truly LOVE and to CHANGE the way they live their life.
I have been feeling lately like I needed to warn people that if we don’t come
together and live for each other as opposed to living Godless/Selfish lives things are going to get much, much worse.
Why? You ask.
Because things in this world are going to change very drastically, very soon… And I must add, over the last couple of years they already have. The storms, earthquakes, and more we are facing is like nothing else we have experience in our generation before.
The President has said, “we are the first generation to experience the effects of Climate Change and we are the Last generation to be able to do something about it.”
I saw a youtube video, that followed his speech on Climate Change with the quote, “this generation shall not passed until all is fulfilled.”
And so, I want to let you all know that things are going to seem to get much, much worse in the world.
That’s right I am talking like end of days worse… Earthquakes, massive flooding, famine, wild fired, war, disease, and more.
Fun, right? … Not at all. And neither is this essay an ear tickling one.
THE GOOD NEWS is, I know this leads to something truly beautiful.
Now for years, I have written that the things we read about in Revelation as well as the entire body of scripture are meant to be taken allegorically.
And while that was true for me, and for many like me, who have woken up to the reality of “God” and Love, for the rest of the world I have now come to believe these events may also be quite literal.
Which is why, I have been haunted by “Inspiration” telling me to WARN THEM…
Sounds a bit odd, I know. But, you have to trust me, I do believe in a little while as the scriptures state, “God will once again shake the heavens and the earth, and shake all nations, and the desired of all Nations will come, so the HOUSE of God (us) may be filled with glory”
In others words, things in the world are going to get much worse if we don’t return to LOVE … But if we do, as Ninevah was spared, so may the wicked in this world as well. So may this world be spared from, what my dream would seem to imply, could be the beginning of sorrows, also known as Jacob’s trouble ironically.
I know that sounds nutty… But that doesn’t mean it isn’t true. I have a history of saying things will happen before they happen, not bragging just stating a fact. If you know me, you will know this to be true.
So, I want you to know that to say, I have ruled out the possibility that this is simply an over active imagination on my part. I am rational very successful man both in life and business… So I don’t consider this a flippant post but one that I believe must be shared, and considered immediately.
My faith and passion to serve God (inspiration, love, peace, truth) will always trump public opinion of me.
So last night, after a dream of my wife preparing a fatted calf, and hearing the words, warn them of what is to come in my heart. I woke up Danielle and we spoke for about an hour. I told her of my fear, and explained of the many coincidences that have led me to this BELIEF that the world was going to go through a terrible time…
I mean, let’s be honest we are already going through a terrible time, but perhaps things will be speeding up soon if we don’y change.
I wrote about this in my novel, in fact the whole “fiction” led up to the main character stating… SHAKING WAS COMING UNLIKE ANYTHING THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN.
As I said, for awhile now SEPT 15 I thought was about me, about everything changing for me… BUT NOW I KNOW IT IS NOT JUST ABOUT ME… it is about the world as a whole.
Throughout the day, I had unnerving coincidences that continued to point me into this direction, where I am sharing with you all tonight.
I will share some…
Today, I found out, as it turns out this SEPTEMBER 15 I have been talking about, also happens to be THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES (literally). Not to mention according to Catholics it is known as the Feast of Seven Sorrows.
But it gets better, on Sept 13, 14 it is time for the the FEAST OF TRUMPETS … This is ironic considering I have been writing about this very moment recently, my 144,000 essay, my videos about it, my “Trumpet shall sound” Video and more leading up to this moment.
But it gets more surreal.
Before this day according to scripture the MOON will not give it’s light …
“Immediately after the distress of those days “‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light…
And coincidently on Sept 13,14 there is a NEW MOON! (GOOGLE IT)
Which means, the Moon before this day sept 15 literally will not give off its light.
Not to mention also on September 13 there is going to be a partial Solar Eclipse. That is a whole heck of a lot of coincidence. But read on, there is more.
This is how Jonah must have felt … I on the other hand, prefer not to be swallowed by the great fish and brought to the depths of hell before realizing I should of said something to begin with.
And as I prayed SHOULD I REALLY COME ON HERE AND SAY SOMETHING… I get an email from my good friend Bob, who is asking me to do a voice over for the trailer of his novel, whose lead character is loosely based on me “Noah Israel the voice in the dead woods” — Take a look at the voice over copy I receive.
Bob Souliske 8:26pm
We tried to warn them, so many times in so many ways.
They would not listen. Now the price has been paid.
The darkness has fallen and the long night has descended.
There is still hope, it flickers softly.
Even in the darkness there is always a shimmer of light.
Hope has sparked our conviction and our conviction has strengthened our resolve. We will be the light that shines in the darkness. We will be that voice that echoes through out creation.
“We will be free.”
My prayer… should I warn them… answered quite literally within seconds of me praying it.
Everything is about to change, unless everyone changes, these are the words I keep hearing.
So please LOVE LOVE LOVE
We shouldn’t need a major natural disaster to turn us back to the Lord of Love and Peace, we shouldn’t need earthquakes and or the quote on quote “star” falling from the sky to remind us that it is better to love than hate.
So for lack of a better word, and at the risk of sounding like that guy … Repent (turn back to love)
I am not saying the world is coming to an end, just an fyi, but I DO know an END OF SOMETHING IS COMING… and I believe that to be MAN’S WICKED WAYS.
I have been saying September 15 for a long while (i thought that had to do with my career, as I said before) however, I am dedicated to following what many consider to be Inspiration, I call it GOD…
I think the coincidence is too coincidental … Call me what you will… But before doing so, take these words to heart.
AFTER THE DISTRESS… the scriptures also speak of a STAR FALLING from the sky… In scripture it is known as wormwood…
AND GUESS WHAT… On September 15, 2015 — A COMET (star) many conspiracy theorists are saying may indeed fall from the sky… right after the literal moon is literally darkened (new Moon)
And so, before posting any of this it took a lot of interesting and downright scary coincidences to get me to finally take this seriously.
Now, I am adding to make this clear, I am NOT saying I know for a fact this is happening, I am only sharing all of the coincidences and all the things I found out “other people” are saying are going to happen on or around that day.
That is a lot of energy from many different people all pinpoint focused on CHANGE… And CHANGE is what I believe is going to happen. An awakening of a sleeping Giant if you will.
I invited my friend Charlie to help me research the date and time further. And it was then we found out quite a bit more “coincidence” surrounding
this day. More of which you will find as you read on.
How is this all possible? Why was I woke up from this dream and vision and inspired to warn the world?
I KNEW NOTHING, NOTHING ABOUT ALL OF THIS… I never heard of star or comet approaching the earth… I didn’t know about the timing of the Christian and Jewish Feasts, not to mention the HUGE Jade Helm military exercises going on and ending on September 15 — google it…
Many are saying Jade Helm 15 is set in place because our government knows something we don’t and they are setting up precautions to keep order and to keep those in power, in power.
Which leads me to the discovery of Shemitah, google that too… Taking place at the end of September. It is an event that took place after seven sabbath years where everyone was released of their debt.
Ironically, many are predicting a global economic collapse. More coincidence for sure.
SO I AM HERE TO WARN YOU… after all of that, and more that I can’t even begin to explain in this one post… I KNOW THIS IS MORE THAN A SYMBOLIC EVENT… so please let us get together and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
Think about it… What if God is real? What if THIS is the time of his “coming/revealing”? I know those who claim to believe, don’t really believe, which is why even your religious leader commit unspeakable acts in the name of God on a regular basis.
Well the time of God winking at such behavior is over….
Think what you want about me… But I know what I know and what you do with it is up to you… I know there will be more to come…
The following information below I added as new information came to me.
24 hours after sharing this I have received a huge outpouring of support and of course my fair share of attacks.
Readers of mine also opened my eyes to the the Blood Moon Tetrad — which of course is also an unlikely celestial event, also taking place in September…
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord,” – Joel 2:31
“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord.” – Acts 2:20
There seems to be a feeling out there that something big is about to happen. Another reader informed me of Shemitah, more confirmation of what I had already known. In fact, three different readers brought this to my attention.
The Shemittah year ends coincidently in or around September 15th as well… Which is outlined below…
At the end of seven years you will make a release. And this is the manner of the release: to release the hand of every creditor from what he lent his friend; he shall not exact from his friend or his brother, because the time of the release for the L‑rd has arrived. (Deuteronomy 15:1–2)
Many people are making their rounds saying that there will be a financial collapse … The culmination of the Shemitah Year “the release of debt” happens at the end of seven years …
Side note: I recently did a video about the Gypsy Moths that appeared everywhere in my back yard recently, after seven years of hibernation Mind you.
In any event, many are saying (just found this out) that they believe there will be a global financial collapse…
Now if there be an event, that possibly wipes out of power grid… Well, everyone’s debt would be wiped clean indeed… That would be nice, but where would my blog be then. 🙂
And of course, Yom Kippur (day of atonement) happens Sept 22,23
Let me also add, CERN running their hugely controversial experiment. Many are saying they are trying to open a dimensional gate. Please do google all of this to find out more, I have not had time to throughly investigate all of this.
My friends, that is a WHOLE LOT of coincidence. None of which I was aware of until the night before last when I woke up understanding that I needed to warn the world that EVERYTHING IS ABOUT TO CHANGE… And I do believe it.
As I have been saying on social media, credibility be damned, public opinion be damned, Let God be true and I am committed to doing what inspiration tells me to do.
I have nothing to gain by sharing this. Up until this point the majority of what I shared was to reveal the symbolism and the allegory of scripture to understand the spiritual … But now, I am here to say I believe we LITERALLY will see a Global shift, crisis, event, etc that we have never before seen.
So we need to LOVE now more than ever before. We need to repent. We need to return to the Lord.
So keep watch, because very shortly, things are going to get very interesting. I love you, PLEASE DO SHARE THIS MESSAGE and the ONES TO FOLLOW, Below you will find a Video I did to further explain my heart, which I hope helps you understand why I am doing what I am doing.
In conclusion, I have taken a lot of flack from people about this recent “warning post”. (Ironically, all of those doing the mocking and condemning have not even read my post.)
Do you honestly believe the guy who speaks of the importance of symbolism and has NEVER in ten years written something like this would do so now, for no reason at all?
I shared this because for months I had been saying BIG CHANGE was coming by September 15 (which I thought had to do with my life alone) then I had a dream that was troubling. I woke up from it disturbed about it, began to pray and meditate on it, and then one day later began finding out ALL OF THE EVENTS said to be transpiring on and around that time.
1) New Moon
2) Solar Eclipse
3) Feast of Trumpets/Tabernacles
4) Four Blood Moons
5) Jade Helm
6) Possible Comet Strike
7) Pope addressing UN in NY for first time in states
8) New Peace Deal signed – Global Sustainable Development
9) Shemitah – predicted Global Economic Collapse
10) CERN – crossing over experiment
11) Yom Kippur – Day Of Atonement
And today as I was researching everywhere on the NASA site to actually find the organization refuting the “comet claims”, which one would think would be easy to find, instead of links on snopes that only lead to links of so-called quotes taken from a Nasa representative (nothing on record, and nothing on Nasa site mind you) all I find is a youtube of the French Foreign Minister announcing over a year ago of impending GLOBAL CLIMATE CHAOS. He then gave us a 500 day count down to such…
Which, is quite a precise time frame don’t you think? Considering the 500 days comes to an end on or about September 15, 2015… So you tell me?
If you were woke up, and believed in God, and knew God inspires and warns his people, and believed a time of Great Change was coming, and then FOUND OUT ALL OF THIS INFORMATION immediately afterward… and YOU believed you were supposed to warn people, regardless of what they thought, expecting NOTHING out of it in return, what would you do?
Would you be like Jonah and turn in the opposite direction, or you would learn from that story and trust that EVERYTHING is meant to be.
I don’t know if any of it will happen or not, but I have a feeling that I am meant to tell you all about it. What you all do with this information is up to you.
I pray that you all RETURN TO THE LORD, that everyone LOVES, FORGIVES, PUTS OTHERS BEFORE THEMSELVES, HUMBLES THEMSELVES, and HELPS TURN THIS WORLD INTO THE PARADISE it is meant to be.
Here is a clip of the French Foreign Minister talking to Congress visit… And below I have a video which expresses my heart and further information about all of this.
So, you tell me … Am I imagining all of this? Or based on all of the evidence, am I here indeed to wake you all up to what is possibly to come?
Immediately after the distress of those days “ ‘the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.’ “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. “Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door. Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. (Matthew 24:29-34 NIV)
I Love You All, Jacob
Please do share this for all to see.
FISHERS OF MEN
17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
18 And STRAIGHTWAY THEY FORSOOK THEIR NETS, and followed him.
In the gospels there is a wonderful story about how Jesus found men toiling under the sun trying to catch fish, but only catching some, with their nets.
Many have taken the story to mean that Jesus came over and told them that they should give up on their careers, follow him and spread the gospel instead. But this my friends is not only what this story means. In fact, what the revelation of this story could mean for your life is quite profound.
You see, not everything that you read about in Scripture is as it seems. There’s a hidden treasure that when revealed can change the very lives of those who read the stories to begin with.
For those of you new to “Jacob’s Ladder” you will find much of what I write here deals with the hidden mystery of scripture. For it is the SPIRIT of the scriptures that give life (enlightenment) to the reader. As the apostle Paul wrote, “the letter/literal kills”. The MEANING/SPIRIT of the story teaches a person something, while focusing on the literal aspects of the story (which were never meant to be taken that way) kills the very LIFE/ENLIGHTENMENT found within the revelation of what that story means.
So much of what we read in the scriptures are an allegory. Which is why Jesus said clearly to his disciples in the gospels, “it is given to you to know the MYSTERIES of the Kingdom of God and unto them who do not have this insight ALL THINGS are shared in PARABLE”.
Now does this all mean that there were not literal events that happened that we read about? Well, that is not really the point is it? What REALLY matters is what a person gains from the story. I often use the parable of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” to illustrate this point. It does not matter whether there was a boy or a wolf, what matters is the SPIRIT of this story, which is of course that one should not lie or exaggerate.
The same is true for the events surrounding these “Fishermen”. It does not matter whether there were literal fisherman or literal nets, what REALLY matters is WHAT THE STORY MEANS FOR US. What TRUTH is hidden within these verses. What is it that “GOD” is trying to say hidden within the context of these stories? That is what matters!
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. (Proverbs 25:2 KJV)
The TRUTH is hidden within these stories and it is our great honor to find these treasures for ourselves. The revelation of which, comes only when one looks beyond the literal story until the spirit of the story clicks within and is revealed. When this happens it is like the “lights go on” and one finally understands the depth, and freedom, of the revelation that was once hidden within what seemed to be a pretty cut and dry story or a man telling a bunch of other men to follow him.
Now when this revelation hits it is like a LIGHT finally shining in a dark place allowing an individual to finally move about with the confidence, and wisdom, of where they should go next.
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. (2 Peter 1:19-21 KJV)
Now I do want to point out that the truth can’t be forced. It must come from deep within, it must be revealed. And when the TRUTH is revealed it is like being healed of blindness spiritually. The TRUTH gives SIGHT to the blind, EARS to the deaf, strength to the lame, a tongue to the mute, brings to life what has been dead/ignorant, casts out the lies/demons that possess men and women, and much, much more.
We see this happening time and time again with every “miracle” Jesus performed. It DOES not matter whether they were literally healed or not, what mattered is that they HEARD THE TRUTH and UNDERSTOOD THE TRUTH.
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
So it is the TRUE MEANING of this story that I wish to share today…
What does it really mean? Why did these men leave their chosen profession and forsake their nets? Are their nets symbolic of something else? Are the Fish A METAPHOR for more?
The answer to all of these questions is YES, YES, AND AMEN!
For years we have taken this story to mean that men and women everywhere should leave everything BEHIND to go out and preach the “message” their particular church says people must adhere to. Basically, bad religion has given people the idea that they should give up on all of their responsibilities to further religion’s agenda/message. Because “saving souls is more important than time with your family, friends, interests, or current employment.” The irony found when Jesus tells the bad religious elite… Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. (Matthew 23:15 KJV)
Bad Religion takes scriptures and twist them. Scriptures like Luke 18:29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake, 30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting. … Bad Religion has used these scriptures to manipulate people into focusing on serving bad religion and bad religion alone regardless of how many families or lives are torn apart in the process.
And the ignorant fish in the sea take the bait and believe these passages are literal… but as Paul states, “These things are allegory!”
Sadly, people today have taken these things literally and have used even these scriptures to justify not living up to the responsibilities of being a parent or spouse. A great example of how the LETTER/LITERAL kills.
The tricks, snares and nets of religion can convince people that they would be rewarded for such nonsense like leaving jobs, homes, family and friends behind to serve Bad Religion’s version of the Kingdom of God. Which they present as some FUTURE award… when the KINGDOM OF HEAVEN AND GOD has always been and NOW EVENT.
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
The salvation of our souls is finding this RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE, AND JOY within us. This is HEAVEN ABOVE. A higher form of thinking. RIGHTEOUSNESS, PEACE AND JOY are not found in selfish ambition, but by LOVE! If truth be told this HEAVEN that Bad Religion is selling today does not exist!
BEHOLD THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS WITHIN YOU. The POWER AND WISDOM OF GOD (Christ) saves us from the lies/nets bad religion has cast upon us to control us.
In Isaiah is the best example of what HEAVEN, and what EARTH, is…
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
HEAVEN = God’s Thoughts/TRUTH = PEACE
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
EARTH = Man’s ignorant/carnal thoughts
God has thoughts of peace, power, and a sound mind. God does not give us the SPIRIT OF FEAR, yet man’s ways are below God’s ways… And one of the greatest NETS Bad Religion has used for far too long is FEAR. “Do this or that OR ELSE!” But the TRUTH delivers us from these nets, as Jesus delivered these men from their nets.
It is the TRUTH that sets a person free. No NET is needed to DRAG anyone to the truth. It’s YOKE is easy, it is not the NET/YOKE OF RELIGION which is a heavy burden. Jesus said, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest Matthew 11:28 and again when Jesus said… For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:30
THESE NETS THE FISHERMEN WERE USING BECOME THE YOKES AND BURDENS we all suffer with today. Which is why we are told to… Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14
There was no joy, peace, and righteousness/right-thinking found in casting net after net into the sea of ignorance we call this world for these men. This is the reason that when the TRUTH (Jesus) appeared to them they were ready to FORSAKE their nets once again for all and become fishers of men!
So it becomes clear, the story of the fishermen leaving their nets behind to follow JESUS is a symbol of so much more. Every piece of this story is rich in meaning and hope. These NETS have more to do with the lies of religion and this world than literally catching fish as you will soon see.
As Micah recalls…
The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright/honest among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a NET.
You will soon see these NETS are everywhere today, and they mean one thing for those caught and that is DEATH/SUFFERING. While the captors can enjoy the spoils of the catch (their money and devotion).
You see these FISH HAVE GOLD INSIDE! Controlling people means more than just devotion and blind faith, it means their wealth is your wealth. BAD RELIGION knew this and JESUS KNEW THIS.
Jesus proved this point when the religious leaders demanded temple tax and he told his disciple to catch a fish (which you will soon see is an ignorant person) and take the gold from its mouth.
Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee.
BAD RELIGION wants that money, and to get it you had to HOOK or SNARE one of the ignorant fish/people in the sea to do so.
Let’s talk about some of those NETS
1) Net of FEAR- HELL, DAMNATION
2) Net of PRIDE – you are better than others
3) Net of Prosperity – You will be healthy and wealthy
4) Net of Power – You can become a super human
5) Net of future reward – You go to Heaven and it is all worth it
6) Net of Family or Friend pressure – If you aren’t like the bad religious you can’t be with them
7) Net of miracle healing
8) Net of prophetic words – people telling you they have heard from God directly
The list goes on and on… and they are ALWAYS CASTING THAT NET OUT ON THE WRONG SIDE
It’s all about money and power for the Bad Religious, and those NETS had to constantly be mended, because they were easily broken. Which is why in each encounter in the Gospels we see the fishermen either using their nets or tending to their nets. These NETS were important to their financial well-being. Yet, immediately following their encounter with this man Jesus they all left their nets. Mind you, they did not just leave their nets, they FORSOOK them.
Now why is this important? You may ask.
Well, these NETS by now you should see offer nothing in return but DEATH for fish. The NETS these fishermen were used to make their living is still practiced today, until the TRUTH shows up and shows them a better way.
Jesus came along and showed them THAT better way… the WAY… THE TRUTH… and LIFE! Jesus promised to make them fishers of men instead.
The difference being what Jesus offered did not mean death for these “fish/ignorant people” it meant life. And this LIFE was something that bad religion and politics has stolen away from them all.
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10 KJV)
So you see, those who have gotten the masses on their bad religious hooks, and caught the unaware in their bad religious nets only came to steal from those they catch and in return kill their true hope and peace.
For MAN also knoweth not his time: as the FISHES that are taken in an evil NET, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
These thieves continue on this day using their lies and promises and fear to keep the ignorant FISH buying into their religious and political lies. These thieves who say as long as their FISH do as they say, give, obey, serve, make followers and don’t question, promise that when the FISH are finally in the grave they will finally enter the gates of heaven.
But these thieves that call themselves religious leaders offer nothing but the death of a fulfilled life. No one, and I repeat no one can enter into the kingdom of heaven under their rule. Mainly because they have twisted everything we read about in scripture into something else. They have created a fantastic narrative that only offers them the power and wealth they crave.
These thieves make false promises and put on grand shows tickling the ears of those who hear and like a net dragged in the sea anyone they catch finds nothing but promises that are never kept, pride, bigotry, intolerance, greed and much worse. One can never find Righteousness (right thinking) Peace, Joy and Power in corrupt thinking. And anyone who tries to enter into the kingdom any other way but through Loves gate and denying one’s self, the same becomes a thief and robber as well, who too will find themselves dragging the allegorical net trying to kill more in the name of a god bad religion made up.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. (John 10:1, 10 KJV)
But Jesus showed them a better way. He revealed the truth to them and he did so using the bait of love and a more abundant life.
So right away they left their nets and followed him. They followed him not for worldly gain but for that peace that surpassed their current understanding.
I would like to state that they did not just leave their NETS behind to follow Jesus, they FORSOOK their nets!
That is quiet an interesting word used to describe them leaving their nets behind, if that is all we are meant to take from it. Let us look at what the word “Forsook” means.
Forsook in Greek – Aphiemi
Literal meaning: “to abandon, leave desolate SO ONE CAN GO FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER.”
This word, “forsook” offers us insight into the deeper meaning of the disciples leaving their nets to become “fishers of men”.
To get to the place of wisdom, to return to their first estate, to move from their current understanding to where they truly wanted to go they had to leave the LIES OF BAD RELIGION behind.
The apostle Paul spoke about this very thing, when he considered all he had learned from religion, all he had done in the name of religion, he called DUNG! Paul knew the snares and nets of bad religion as well as anyone. Paul and well as David knew how deadly these NETs could be. He knew a NET of LIES cast unto the ignorant fish of the world, meant death and hell (ignorant suffering)for the people.
For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul. Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
The “FISH” by now, you should understand are symbols of the ignorance holding MEN AND WOMEN EVERYWHERE captive. It is their carnal ignorance.
Jesus compared ignorant men and women to FISH, when promising to make his new recruits “Fishers of Men”.
Jonah was swallowed by a GREAT FISH, and resided in the FISH’S BELLY for three days much like Jesus did in the belly of the EARTH. Here we see a connection that must be made. The first obvious connection is that the belly of the fish is also a symbol for the belly of the earth, which we also now know from earlier, is also a symbol of MAN’S CARNAL WAYS AND THOUGHTS. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are Gods ways higher than man’s, God’s thoughts higher than man’s thoughts.”
Jonah is an allegory of the SPIRIT MAN trapped within the IGNORANCE OF THE CARNAL MAN (fish). Look also what the BELLY OF THE FISH is called by JONAH… HELL!
2 Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish’s belly,
2 And said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me; out of the belly of HELL cried I, and thou heardest my voice.
In this verse we see the Fish’s Belly also called the belly of HELL. We know that HELL is the word used to describe the suffering that accompanies ignorance. The FISH are those that are ignorant and lost to the ways of this world (lust of eyes, flesh, pride of life).
We also find that Jesus was found in the belly of the EARTH.
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the fish’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
We are also told that when Jesus died he entered HELL (Ignorant suffering) to set the captives free in 1st Peter 3.
THE BELLY is also a punishment for the SERPENT (carnal ego man) who goes about on his belly digesting only dust/lies. The BELLY is a great symbol for the “womb of the carnal mind”. The BELLY of the FISH is a person’s carnal lust and ego. This is why we see the lying serpent cursed to go about on his belly.
And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
THE BELLY is a symbol for the “womb of ignorance and carnal thinking” indeed as Job puts it… Job 15:35
They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their BELLY PREPARES DECEIT.
But just as JONAH was freed from his ignorant hell, just as Jesus was freed from the sins of the world that cast him into the depths of the earth/hell/grave, just as these fishermen were delivered from their miserable lives, so also are we when we stop trying to rule over others, make money from others, or get others to do what we want them to do. The instant we forsake the NETS of our past and become fishers of men ourselves by sharing the truth without wanting anything in return, then the heavens open up and we find the rest Jesus promised.
There are those who kill their FISH – The bad religious do this. There are those who fish men out of their ignorant despair and offer them life and hope.
When Jesus asked them to follow him he was leading them to the kingdom of heaven, and I pray we can do the same for others! Which are we? Fisher of Men or Killers of Fish?
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
IT’S TIME FOR THE FISH TO COME OUT OF THE WATER! IT’S TIME TO HELP OTHERS WALK UPON THE WATERS INSTEAD OF DROWING IN THEM… ONCE WE PULL THESE FISH OUT OF THEIR IGNORANCE, THE HEAVENS WILL OPEN UP AND THEY TOO WILL KNOW WHO THEY ARE AND WHAT THEY ARE CAPABLE OF.
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
It’s time for Bad Religion to forsake their nets, let’s help them all become fishers of men by showing LOVE!

So please enjoy this latest essay of mine. Let me begin by sharing a poem, that sums this paper up beautifully.
THE GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY
They say, there will be a day, when some will be tricked into endlessly weeping and gnashing of teeth.
They say, there is a place of endless torture beneath, but this place is merely one’s lack of peace.
They say there will be a day like this for you and me.
However, we were born free and were tricked into thinking peace and joy was outside of us, you see?
Cast into this land, where ignorance has an upper hand, believing our ego is who we were born to be.
Tricked, fooled, deceived to allow lies and fear to rule, in a place where weeping and gnashing of teeth has become the experience of you and me.
You believe, you believe in those who deceive, and this is why you think salvation is far away, instead of knowing it is within you this day.
Outer Darkness is the darkness of living without instead of within.
This is the crown of thorns placed on the horn of truth that has been hidden by this great and terrible sin.
This is all your creating, this is all your imagination to begin.
You’re not the slave who behaves like your nine to five keeps you alive, no, that is not you, no, that is not true, that is what the ancients meant when using the word sin.
You have simply missed the mark, which is always in the center of the heart, which is love’s spark and keeps beats with the world.
You have believed you were simply a helpless boy or girl, lost in an unending whirl or worries, fear, and doubt.
This is why the herald shouts, “GO WITHIN, GO WITHIN, GO WITHIN AND YOU WILL FIND YOU ARE THE END AND THAT WHICHS BEGINS!” So arise oh sleeper and stop putting your faith in that which is WITHOUT!
I have titled this essay, “Let Us Make Man In Our Image”, then I changed to the “Seals Are Loosed” as I wrote it, as if I was meant to do so.
So let me start at the beginning, because if one understands the beginning they will understanding the end.
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
When I was a child I was taught, by people who presented themselves as knowing better, that this passage in Genesis meant there was some God out there in space, or another dimension, that looks very much like Santa Claus on Steroids and that he made mankind to LOOK LIKE HIM. That is what I was told the IMAGE of God was. An image many say is like a picture, or a painting, or something that basically LOOKS like something else.
Now where this theory falls apart is that the very scriptures we have been taught are the inspired word of said Creator, are infallable, which means if something in these scriptures says NOT TO THINK of GOD in such a way, we shouldn’t. In fact, there is a clear instruction in scripture against picturing God as this MAN in the sky who created us all.
1 And God spake all these words, saying, 2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:
I want to point your attention to verse 4, where the “commandments” clearly state, not to make ANY GRAVEN IMAGE or LIKENESS that is IN HEAVEN ABOVE, or EARTH BENEATH…. – Meaning, we shouldn’t be picturing God like us, now should we? — And again in other places we find the same…
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Yes, that’s right, we have been tricked into believing in some God in the sky, who looks like us, acts like us, and thinks like us… which is why we have all accepted the HORRIBLE DOCTRINES of the day, like infinite torture, the rapture, the trinity, speaking in tongues, the list goes on and on…
Yes, God created man IN HIS IMAGE and then the IMAGE of God, created a GOD in the IMAGE’S IMAGE… (Hope that wasn’t too confusing.)
And my friends, this is the BONDAGE that is written of in the scriptures… Pictured as Egypt, Hell, the pit, the sea, and much more… The BONDAGE that we are RELEASED from.
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
And what is that BONDAGE you ask?
The BONDAGE IS WHO YOU THINK YOU ARE BUT ARE NOT…. This is the beast that IS and is NOT and yet IS… your EGO!
The BONDAGE is our IGNORANCE, it is the FEAR this IGNORANCE (DEATH) CAUSES. It is our IGNORANCE that causes all of our pain, this is the very HELL we read about, which is also called the GRAVE, THIS IS THE CORRUPTION of man… But one day we will wake out of our slumber into the TRUTH of who we REALLY ARE.
Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
That scripture that speaks of becoming incorruptible has nothing to do with getting super human bodies that never break down… we are not our bodies people… The CORRUPTION is the THOUGHT that we ARE and the BELIEF that we are SOMEONE AND SOMETHING we are NOT. OUR MINDS, our thoughts, have been corrupted.
This is pictured in the allegory of of Jesus being crusified at Golgatha… Jesus = TRUTH, LIFE, The WAY put to death at THE PLACE OF THE SKULL= YOUR MIND.
In between TWO THIEVES — These THIEVES are the TWO MEN AND WOMEN in your bed (body) — the ying and the yang, the good and the bad… You are neither good not bad, YOU SIMPLY ARE. You became CORRUPT (Ignorant of the TRUTH) the MOMENT you starting EATING from that TREE. Believing there is a good part of you or a bad part of you.
You see the THIEF is anyone who tries to get into the Kingdom any other way, but WITHIN!
You see we became corrupt the instant we forgot who we truly were and began to believe in this IMAGE that we are not. And out of this ignorance we created more lies to believe in, further pushing into the outer darkness of this thing here we call life. And in this OUTER DARKNESS. In this OUTER DARKNESS there is suffering, weeping and gnashing of teeth (anger/back biting/etc). We were cast into this horrible ignorance after we bought into the lie that we are what others said we are, and when we began looking for our salvation and peace OUTSIDE OF US.
What is OUTER DARKNESS?
But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth
The OUTER DARKNESS is the IGNORANCE that OUTSIDE OF US is where we should place out faith. And sadly, everyone does this. They WAIT for a SAVIOR outside of them, WAIT for a HEAVEN after they die, WAIT for a bank statement to feel secure, WAIT for someone to treat them right to feel loved, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT…
Everyone has been tricked into WAITING for something that is ALREADY AVAILABLE within them.
And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house
Once the TRUTH is revealed, the day of SALVATION is HERE! And what we need to be saved from is the false belief that we are something we are not, and that it is blasphemous and terrible to even think about who WE MAY BE…
The TRUTH to who you are is revealed… EVERYTIME you ask… “WHO AM I”… “I AM” is the answer… yet we have added more… We have said, “I AM (Jacob)”
Now how did this happen? Well I have written about this many times before, but let me further explain how this MAN named JACOB was created… FORMED FROM THE DUST OF THE GROUND
“Jacob” is a name given to me by parents, my experiences “FORMED” me into this man I know to be Jacob. There I was a little baby, pure, just out of the womb and within moments, my earthly mother and earthly father (OR LACK THERE OF) began to imprint me. They gave me my name. They said, “You are Jacob” but was that really WHO I WAS or WHO I AM?
Go up to anyone today and ask them, “Who are you?” and EVERYTIME they will say, “I AM Bob, or Helen, or Tyrel, or Eunice… BUT IS THAT WHO WE ARE?
The answer is unequivicably, NO!
And what is our reward for being misled, by OURSELVES/EGO… We end up sick, suffering, cast into OUTER DARKNESS/ignorance… This is pictured in every story of scripture… But watch, how even the most innocuous scripture… which means a scripture that seems less harmful or meaningless… That even a scripture we don’t pay much mind, below, is first read as if the only thing that mattered was that they LITERALLY HAPPENED… Oh, what foolishness to believe in the letter which kills the truth within, instead of the LIFE GIVING SPIRIT the story has to offer.
Read with blinders first…
5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,
6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented.
7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him.
8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but SPEAK THE WORD ONLY, and my servant shall be healed.
No, we are not worthy of the TRUTH ARE WE? Yet, the truth is ALREADY WITHIN, it was already within for the centurian, he just needed someone to tell him the TRUTH/THE WORD!… the power to heal the illness that ignorance causeD was within… no need to go to anyone, OR WAIT ANY LONGER.
THE BLIND BELIEVE in stories of miracles and fairytales… like Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and many other such tales… the reason this happened is because those in power locked the truth up. This continues today, the television, church, politics, news, tradition, etc, etc… the TRUTH which is hidden within the SCRIPTURES WAS LOCKED UP… sealed tight until the time appointed to be revealed to the masses to see. And that TIME is now.
And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed
This vision, is what a man who sees, believes about those who don’t believe….
Those that believe they are helpless, hopeless, and in need of rule or future salvation have NO VISION at ALL. They can’t see past their circumstances. The vision of who they really are and who they can create themself to be is nowhere to be found… As Isaiah says, it’s like it has been SHUT UP! Sealed, locked away, everyone has lost their ability to SEE THE TRUTH that has been HIDDEN from our once uninterested eyes… Until now…
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field
You see, the TRUTH can be bought… BUT IT CAN NEVER BE SOLD…
In other words, you can BUY INTO the belief… but you can’t SELL IT! I cannot show you the truth, until you purchased YOUR FIELD… Until you KNOW that within this body and ego is YOU! Christ.. The POWER AND WISDOM of GOD/I AM. Oh friends, this is great treasure indeed.
The TREASURE of the word, which is TRUTH… the TRUTH which sets you free… the TRUTH of who is the GREAT I AM, and to NEVER TAKE THIS NAME IN VAIN… Now, see that with different eyes… You are given the NAME I AM, don’t take it for nothing… Don’t you dare BURY THIS TREASURE worried that you might lose it, or someone may steal it and harm you because of it. Today, is not the day for this… No, today is the day to GRAB HOLD of this treasure within! The treasure that has been hidden IN YOUR IGNORANCE.
And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, I am the God of Israel.
Did you catch that?… Let me translate, or put into my own words, WHICH ARE YOUR WORDS…… “And “I” will give you truth of this ignorance, the wonderful truth that has been kept secret from you (who you think you are/ego), that YOU (who you think you are) may know the one who REALLY EXISTS, who actually gave you your name and believed it was all you were, is THE GOD OF ISRAEL!
But the day WHEN the BLINDERS and LOCKS ARE TAKEN OFF is the day we will all SEE THIS GREAT TREASURE.
This day is a WONDERFUL DAY. It is also great and terrible, because it is scary at first to hear who you REALLY ARE and what you are REALLY capable of. Before this terrible day, it was like the SUN was darkness, and the MOON was BLOOD, showing the violence and fear of ignorance played out on this world’s stage. That is what life is like BEFORE THIS GREAT AND TERRIBLE DAY!
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.
But the DAY OF THE LORD — the day of the EXISTING ONE, which is what the word LORD literally means, is HERE and the SEALS have been LOOSED… As these seals are LOOSED, the blinders are taken off, the lies/demons are cast out, and this happens by the one who BRING THE TRUTH. It is the messengers power to explain these mysteries to you and set you free from them, as the messengers were once set free from.
30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
This was ALL PART OF THE PLAN… The SON (mankind) was SENT INTO THIS WORLD to have their TRUE IDENTITY put death so that eventually the SON (MANKIND) could also raise from this ignorance and teach others to do the same… For we are ALL ONE… As Jesus was the firstborn among many brethren… we are ALL ONE CHILD – One CREATION — One IMAGE that is CONTROLLED and CREATED BY WHO WE REALLY ARE TO BEGIN WITH.
But this TRUTH has been sealed away, hidden, in the grave, and it must be RISEN FROM…
Pictured here in the book of Revelation…
2 … a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
Now, here is a GREAT REVELATION… prepare yourself for what you are about to see….
WHO IS WORTHY TO LOOSE THE SEALS? Is it JESUS? He was a man on the EARTH? Wasn’t he? Well what does that passage say about those in heaven and in earth?
3 And NO MAN in heaven (Jesus was in Heaven, wasn’t he), nor in earth (Jesus was in the Earth wasn’t he?), neither under the earth (Jesus went into hell, the pit, the grave didn’t he?), WAS ABLE TO OPEN THE BOOK neither to look thereon (UNDERSTAND IT).
Are you catching on yet? Is it me? Am I the one found worthy to OPEN THE BOOK? Is it Jacob?… Is it YOU?
Hang in there you’ll get it in a second, the seals are loosed by the one within us all, the one who is in control typing these words…. The ONE who came to SPLIT IN TWAIN AND MAKE ONE NEW MAN… And the TWO BECOME ONE, IN AN INSTANT IN A TWINKLING OF THE EYE… as above so below, whatever is bound in heaven is bound in earth, whatever you believe becomes! BECAUSE THAT IS WHO YOU REALLY ARE!
No ONE EGOMANIAC is worthy to open the book, NO ONE IS WORTHY TO KNOW THE TRUTH in the EARTH… because THEY DON’T EVEN EXIST! They are characters nothing more, avatars, like the video games the IMAGES created, in their image. Who you think you are is going to end, your body, your ego, is a creation of the SPIRIT OF LIFE AND CREATION WITHIN YOU… THE REAL YOU hidden in who you think you are, even giving life to this creation for a time, that is the POWER THAT YOU HOLD WITHIN… Can you even grasp these words?
Your salvation is NOT FOUND in another, and your SALVATION is NOT A FUTURE event, it is of upmost importance for you to WAKE UP out of your slumber and see that who we really are is creating this nightmare we call earth…
Consider this, what is impossible to the human race? The farther we seek and the more we look for, the more appears out of thin air… MUCH LIKE THE BIG BANG THEORY… much like this life…
1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
Right now, we can’t see the big picture… we look into the mirror but can’t SEE who we TRULY ARE… But after the SEALS are loosed, after the LIES are stripped away… we will KNOW as we ARE KNOWN. We will KNOW as we are KNOWN. If we KNOW as others KNOW US then we KNOW OURSELVES.
Consider what is possible today… science fiction is now science…man can fly, reach the heavens, create organs in a plastic dish, cure disease, create mass quantities of food, communicate instantaneously anywhere around the world in an instant, as a signal travels thousands of miles at the speed of light… Consider that we accept this things because we have convinced ourselvees we had to create things to do so, never once considering we have the power to do everything and anything we desire… Because who we REALLY ARE gave us that desire. IT IS OUR DESIRE TO DO SO, to be who we want to be, to see what we want to see…
Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips.
There is NOTHING that is restrain us or holding us back, truly! The ONLY THING holding us back are the beliefs that we cannot do this or that. These are the seals… THE SEALS WHICH TODAY HAVE BEEN LOOSED FOR SOME.
You, my brothers and sisters are in control, but not YOU who is reading this right now, not the one IN THE WORLD, who is putting their faith outside of them in the world, YOU, THE ONE IN CONTROL… THE EXISTING ONE… THE ONE WHO EXISTS AND HAS ALWAYS EXISTED… YOU… YOU WITHIN THE YOU YOU CREATED…. YOU NEED TO WAKE UP… ARISE!
5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.
6 I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.
7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.
8 Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
ARISE TO WHO YOU ARE! AND ALL YOU CAN ACHIEVE! This is the truth, the wonderful truth of this MYSTERY that has been hidden from the ages… CHRIST IN YOU… But the word Christ, just means, the WISDOM AND POWER of God!
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory
The WISDOM AND POWER OF GOD IS IN YOU!
Forgotten, after entering this world, and taking on the sins of it… Believing you are a baby, a son, a daughter, a name you were given. We have been imprinted.
We are told how to act, what to wear, when to go to bed, how to eat, how to think, how to speak. EVERY aspect of our lives, CONDITIONED, and slowly we begin to believe this is who we are. But this so called PERSON that we think we are, is a LIE. It is a creation of MEN/WOMEN, it the creation of ourself… and WE EVEN GAVE IT LIFE.
So that it now exists SEPERATE FROM WHO WE ARE!
It was formed from the DUST, the DEATH, the IGNORANCE of this world, values, beliefs, all forced upon us. But now it is time to RISE FROM THE DEAD! Rise from your ignorance and see!
We were all MADE in this DUST OF DEATH. The FIRST MAN is FORMED out of IGNORANCE.
“To be carnally minded is DEATH”.
This is why, my friends it is time to PUT OFF that former conversation you have with the image you created. Which is CORRUPT according to the LIES IT WAS BORN OUT OF.
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts.
Regardless of what lies we have believed ourselves to be. We are MORE than our experiences, we are MORE than what others claim us to be. We are MORE than we have ever thought overselves to be.
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
A life of ignorance is a life of DEATH. If we believe we are someone, we are NOT, then in fact, then WE ARE ACTUALLY DEAD to who we REALLY are… and WHO WE REALLY ARE is hidden, waiting to RISE AGAIN… So the TWO CAN BECOME ONE!
To wake up and be able to say… As I say
And now I am no more in the world, but these (who read these words) are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father (ONE WHO CREATED the ONE IN THE WORLD) keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be ONE as WE ARE!
And the FIRST IDEA of who you think you are, is LAST into coming to the truth. The LAST IDEA of who you are has always been HIDDEN in the FIRST!
But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.
The first idea of who you are is of this EARTH… IGNORANT… FORMED FROM LIES… Even though who you REALLY ARE breathed life into this IMAGE… BUT THE LAST YOU, IS ACTUALLY THE LORD FROM HEAVEN!
1 Corinthians 15:47
The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
So isn’t time to come to the TRUTH and put the image away…
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Now, my friends, I know life has been hard… But you knew it had to be so you would wake up!
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
AND THAT GLORY is at HAND!
I must add after reading this to my friend Dean, something he shared about this day. “I taught many years ago on the Flood, and it is not the rain that floods the earth, it is the opening of the fountains of the earth… which is the truth within, after being watered for forty years, the SEED within is finally ready to BURST THROUGH… and in that moment, THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD SHALL FILL THE EARTH AS THE WATERS COVER THE SEA… AND HOW DO THE WATERS COVER THE SEA?… The answer is completely.
WELCOME TO JOEL’S ARMY EVERYONE!
KEEP THESE WORDS CLOSE AND SHARE THE TRUTH WITH THOSE SO THEY MAY BE SET FREE!
Peace to you all, Jacob

“The Truth Will Change You”
BOOK OF REVELATION
The book of Revelation, written by the Apostle John in exile on the Isle of Patmos, is perhaps the most misunderstood book in the entire canon of scripture. The amount of confusion that has come out of the teaching of this, New Testament book, is more than just a little disturbing. As a child growing up, I was terrified. You see, when it comes to the things of God, Ignorance is NOT BLISS it is dangerous.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:
It would be some 30 years later that the truth of this wonderful book opened up to me, and now I am going to attempt to share some of that with you.
Without proper understanding people will believe any old thing that comes out of the mouths of the Religious Leaders of the world. For example there was a time I believed without a shadow of a doubt that I needed to have my son baptized when he was born, for fear that if he died, he would be sent to a place of endless torture. How sad it is that man has twisted the Good News of God in such a way, that everything we now do is simply because we are motivated by fear to do it instead of being motivated by love.
There are so many voices out there today, saying so many different things that it would be hard for anyone to truly know which way is “The Way”, which of course is another description of Christ (The power and wisdom of God). So instead of going right to God, mankind has been taught to go to “church buildings”, perhaps they were raised in a certain philosophy and brainwashed since birth that what their particular faith states is the only truth there is, regardless of how wrong it could be.
As I said, I bought into many religious doctrines and fear tactics as a child, but when I became a man I put away these childish things and I searched for the truth for myself. I simply hungered for God’s truth, I was thirsty for the truth, so I begged God daily, “TEACH ME THE TRUTH NO MATTER WHAT THE COST!”
I didn’t want to be wrong, I didn’t want to be misled, I wanted to know the truth. And this led me to the study of many holy books, as well as the scriptures which I cut my teeth on and till this day still use as my main source to relay what I now know to be true. But I always leave open the possibility that I could be wrong, the moment I think I know it all and that I alone have the answers is the very moment I will learn no more, and become deceived.
17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.
18 Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud
So, today we examine a book that people for years now have, in my opinion, truly misinterpreted… that of course being the last book in the cannon, “The Revelation Of Jesus Christ to John”.
First a brief history lesson: You see, people don’t know that their beliefs today actually were designed to contradict another belief that was designed to tear a certain religion down. In other words, the enduring beliefs about revelation today were simply strategic moves by members of RELIGION to further their RELIGIOUS agenda. And in doing so millions have now fallen into these erroneous teachings. SO LET’S TEAR THEM DOWN SHALL WE?
In the 3rd century AD, the dispute began over whether or not this book of symbols, and prophesies, written by John should be taken literally or figuratively.
Clement of Alexandria and Origen (two of the greatest theologians of their time) taught that Revelation COULD ONLY be seen as an ALLEGORICAL and that it DOES NOT REFER TO HISTORICAL OR FUTURE EVENTS. You’ll find I agree.
However, after the Reformation in 1517, The Book of Revelation became a weapon in the hands of religious men, using it to discredit those in opposing faiths. Three new interpretations came out of this, Historicism, Preterism, and Futurism.
“Historicism, states the prophesies of Revelation has begun to unfold in ancient times, and basically claimed the Papacy and the Pope were the Anti-Christ. ”
In defense of this, three Jesuits created two differing views, Luis de Alcasar, Francisco Ribera, and Robert Bellarmine came up with these two doctrines, Preterism, and Futurism.
Alcasar originated “Preterism”, which states the whole of Revelation was fulfilled by the fall of Jerusalem in 70 A.D, or, in another reading, by the fall of Rome in 410 A.D.
Ribera came up with the view that is wildly popular today, “Futurism” which states that the Apocalyptic events will occur at the end of time/humanrace, hence the idea of the Final Days or End Times. And today you don’t have to go far to hear about these dreaded “End Times” we are living in.
So which is it? You ask.
Well I will tell you that, the CLUE as to what is going on here is found right smack dab in the middle of the first page, THE TITLE.
You see many people will call it the “Book of Revelation”, this is why I titled this essay as such, but that is NOT the title JOHN gave. The title John Gave offers us GREAT INSIGHT. I want you to just look at that title for a moment. REALLY LOOK AT IT.
“The Revelation of Jesus Christ unto his servant John”
This is the ACTUAL title of the book. The Title does not say, the Future vision of scary things to befall mankind, or the past events of the fall of Rome, BUT, it states… this book is the… REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST UNTO HIS SERVANT JOHN.
Let me put this in words you best can understand. The title of the book LITERALLY refers to how the truth of Jesus Christ was REVEALED TO JOHN.
Dictionary.com defines REVELATION as such:
the act of revealing or disclosing; disclosure.
2. something revealed or disclosed, especially a striking disclosure, as of something not before realized.
3. Theology a. God’s disclosure of Himself and His will to His creatures.
b. an instance of such communication or disclosure.
c. something thus communicated or disclosed.
d. something that contains such disclosure, as the Bible.
If you are still unclear on what revelation is. Well, think of it like this, imagine a chair is covered with a blanket and all anyone knows is that blanket, but the chair is always there waiting for that blanket to be pulled off it. Revelation is what happens when that blanket is pulled away and the chair is revealed. You realize the chair was always there, you just didn’t know it until it was revealed, until the very thing keeping it hidden from you was pulled away.
You see, there is a great TRUTH within us all which has been HIDDEN and one day the VEIL/EVIL (the flesh=carnal mind/ignorance) which was keeping this great truth hidden is removed. Once the Veil/Flesh/Carnal Mind is removed the TRUTH is known.
This is what this last book in the scriptures is about, the revealing of the great truth which is CHRIST, which is IN YOU, which is the HOPE OF GLORY.
But how does one explain so great a truth? Jesus always taught in parable. There was a great reason for this. If Jesus were to come out and say things plainly it would not be received very well. Those that have had the revelation of Christ know that you can’t just go up and tell someone what you have learned, they would attack you, tear you down, and put you out. So, like Jesus, John wrote symbolically.
And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, ALL these things are done in parable
So “Revelation” is a book of allegorical symbols and shadows written to try to explain, that which cannot be literally explained. This book is John’s account of how HE finally understood the truth. It is a poetic documenting of his journey from Ignorance to Revelation (understanding).
Why so many people take this book literally is beyond me. I know how Elijah must have felt, everywhere he turned people were worshipping Baal and he alone had the wonderful truth, which was simple and wonderful, not filled with all the hocus pocus and yet the world wanted him dead.
Nevertheless, God prepared 7000 (not a literal number people) who have not bowed down/FOLLOWED/WORSHIPPED Baal (this LORD the world loves). This remnant is standing up today and shouting, “WAKE UP WORLD YOU ARE BELIEVING LIES!”
Throughout the years there have been “Profits” of doom, claiming the world would end, or Christ would literally appear. Whether it was Jim Jones, Benny Hinn, The Hale Bop cult, or most recently Harold Camping, we see the terrible fall out because of it all. People are desperate today to find peace, they want to escape a world where they only know misery and pain. So they believe in fairy tales where they are whisked away and everyone who is not like them is tortured. This belief is the very heart of the Carnal Man (do as I say, believe what I believe, OR ELSE).
The spiritual man knows that God is LOVE and will have ALL come to the knowledge of the truth.
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ
There Religious Leaders SEEM TO speak with such authority, that those who are desperate for a way out of the misery of their lives, they will buy into what they are selling hook line and sinker. And boy do these Religious leaders serve it up, itching people’s ears and giving them exactly what they want.
The sad part is, deceived and deceiving religious leaders will tear down and attack other deceived and deceiving religious leaders for their deceit. As we recently saw with the Harold Camping fall out. Almost every Evangelical teacher condemned the man for his false prediction of the Rapture, stating that they know scripture says no one knows the day or the hour, not even the son.
The irony is the Rapture teaching is a lie as well, and they are no better than the Harold Campings of the world. They are selling escapism, as opposed to teaching the truth which is the only path to freedom. There is no quick fix, no prayer to pray to be saved, no way out of our suffering without GOING TO THE CROSS (symbolically of course of crossing from our ignorance into enlightenment, hell to heaven). We need to put the son of man (ego man) to death, and allow the SON OF GOD to be revealed. For that is who we all actually are. But that is not what this paper is about.
So back to REVELATION:
This is what this book deals with, symbolic and allegorical stories of how Christ is revealed to MAN. And what wonderful symbolism John used. So let’s start diving in, by looking at one of the most misunderstood, fear inspiring, chapters. Chapter 10. I will simply state the verse and beneath it reveal what I believe is really going on there. I do this by searching the scriptures for witnesses of the words stated. For example if you want to find out what a “Thorn” represents go through the scriptures and read everything that is written about that thorn, and you will find it is an allegorical representation of “the cares of the world” – the Thorn strangles the Word/Logos/Logic/Wisdom/Truth/Christ.
1And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
Who is this angel, what is an Angel? Well the word, ANGEL is literally translates as MESSENGER/MESSAGE/ENVOY. Look it up. 🙂
You see, an Angel is not some winged creature. An Angel is simply a messenger of God, it could be anyone who has been brought into a higher (heavenly) realm of understanding. An Angel is one who has the revelation of Christ and then relays this information to those in the Earth… In fact in most literal translations, the word Angel is never even used, it is replaced by Man or Men or Messenger, or Envoy…. Meaning an Angel delivers Gods truth to those who haven’t ascended into the understanding of God’s truth yet.
This is what Jacob’s Ladder is all about, going up to a place of enlightenment and then coming down to reveal it to others.
I want to remind you, Revelation is a book of “symbols” and so this description is symbolic as well.
This Angel is Clothed in a Cloud… A cloud is symbolic of the witnesses in the world. A literal cloud hangs directly in between Heaven and Earth. It receives the WATER (doctrine) and Releases the RAIN (doctrine/teaching). Clouds are a GREAT SYMBOL of the believers. Don’t believe me?
Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a CLOUD of witnesses.
The CLOUD (Those who witness to the world the things of God) led Israel through the wilderness during the DAY (a symbol of understanding/being about to see. When people can see what is beinG said they can follow it). As Many Men and Women of God lead others through the wilderness of this world. But not all CLOUDS (Witnesses) have the revelation of Christ and deliver truth.
These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots.
Those witnesses (clouds) had not the TEACHING/DOCTRINE of the Truth.
So we see the CLOUD is symbolic of the people who WITNESS the things of God to others. The ANGEL is the Message of Truth. So it is easy to see, that this ANGEL CLOTHED WITH A CLOUD, a WITNESS who had the TRUTH OF GOD (message of God) within to share.
The Glory of God was always found inside a CLOUD, clothed with a cloud…
While Aaron was speaking to the whole Israelite community, they looked toward the desert, and there was the glory of the LORD appearing in the cloud.
A lot of people don’t understand what this GLORY of God revealed in the cloud is. Well the Glory of God is to CONCEAL SOMETHING. God’s Glory is the HIDDEN TRUTH within us all.
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter
This Angel (Message of truth/Messenger of truth) REVEALS the GLORY (hidden things) OF GOD to others, because it is first revealed to them, and it resides WITHIN THEM.
This great treasure is in EARTHEN VESSELS! Let’s look at that verse again with new eyes.
1And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
Now for the second part of this verse… A rainbow is upon his head. Now a head represents the thinking of a person, the authority of a person. So to understand what a rainbow on someone’s head means, we must first understand what a rainbow represents. A RAINBOW shows all the glory of the light, it reveals the entire color spectrum. And hows does this do this? Because the Sunlight hits the water just right. Do you see the allegory? … The head represents the thinking or the authority of a man. So this Witness, reveals all the glory of the light (TRUTH/CHRIST) and by looking at him it was as if we were looking at the Son of God…
This Angel is A MANIFESTED SON OR DAUGHTER OF GOD. Their FEET, which is a representation of our WALK with the LORD. And witness in the world, is as a FIRE which is symbolic of purification. Fire burns away everything that is not true. So the Feet as pillars of Fire another symbol of this Messenger’s walk and witness in the world.
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things
So now that we know, this Angel is not some supernatural creature, but simply a Manifested Son or Daughter of God sent to witness what they themselves have learned we can move on.
And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, m>
The book, or scroll, is written so whatever is DOCUMENTED will be REMEMBERED and NOT FORGOTTEN.
A CLOSED/SEALED book is one whose knowledge cannot be known until it is OPEN… An OPEN BOOK is easily read, it is a TRUTH that is no longer hidden from men. It is an Epistle read of all men.
This MESSENGER of God is not keeping anything away from mankind. “He or She” is an OPEN BOOK to be read of all MEN.
They will set their Foot (ministry or walk) on the Sea (those who do not know God) and on the Land (those that may know God but still live in the carnal realm of the earth)
Let me show you, that the SEA AND WATERS are always a representation of the multitudes that don’t know God. This is what we must FISH MEN OUT OF, their ignorant thinking.
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
The whore of Babylon which sits upon the waters, is simply mankind’s Carnal Beliefs. Which keeps people drunk (intoxicated), and when people are drunk they can’t think clearly can they. False Beliefs and Ignorance is the very essence of what we find in the Sea. Which is why this Angel stands on both the Sea and the Land. These Manifested Sons and Daughters of God, Messengers of God will put their FOOT on both, in other words they will bring the GOSPEL of TRUTH to both, with authority.
Yes, these messengers are just regular old people, like you and me, who have the truth revealed to them, so they in return can reveal it to others, freely. As Jesus did, (as He is so are We in this world “1st john”) This is what John learned and tried to reveal in symbolic language, so those who were meant to understand would, and those that weren’t couldn’t. Because there is an order to God’s plan, and each man comes to the truth in his or her order.
3And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
These SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD boldly proclaim what the Lion of Judah proclaimed when he cried out on the cross… FORGIVENESS and LOVE! Seven, of course the number of completion. Thunder is what you hear after you see lightning. In other words these messengers will bring a completed and perfected message of truth and people will HEAR IT!
When the truth is sounded, as scripture tells us (God’s words are like THUNDER)… and these SEVEN THUNDERS are the “perfected and completed” total all-encompassing truth of God’s message TO ALL. On the seventh day God rests. This is the FINAL MESSAGE OF TRUTH, that is declared.
His Messengers DECLARE this TRUTH to all.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
Now this message isn’t for everyone. There are MANY that cannot HEAR THE TRUTH, SEE THE TRUTH, or WALK IN THE TRUTH. For some, it just makes complete sense, for others, however, the book is SEALED. Here John is basically saying, he had to write the book of Revelation symbolically, it had to be sealed up. The completed and perfect message of truth came to him, but he knew not everyone would receive it, so he understood it had to be sealed, or should I say concealed from those that would probably kill him for saying what today many are beginning to say.
Mark 4:12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
A mature believer understands who he or she can share the TRUTH with. A Mature believer never wastes their pearls before swine (carnal believers). In your walk you have to veil you revelations for many. Moses did this, he veiled his face, which was symbolic of hiding the truth from people. Listen the fact of the matter is you can’t just go into any old church and say, HEY EVERYONE, ALMOST EVERYTHING YOU ALL BELIEVE IS A BIG LIE! Can you? No, you can only share the truth with those that can hear the truth. To those whom have been prepared to hear it.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Despite the simplicity of Gods all-encompassing love and forgiveness… This is why this Message of seven thunders (God’s perfect Truth) is sealed up… Each man in his order will receive it when they are ready. And remember, God is no respecter of persons. If you have this understanding don’t get all puffed up with pride thinking yourself to be special. Don’t believe you have done better, or more, than those who do not understand. For God blinds those he blinds for good reason.
For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
God makes EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL in IT’S time. So for some, the BOOKS (understanding of God’s truth) are closed, for others they are wide open. And one day, they will be OPEN FOR ALL.
5And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, 6And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
This messenger, when he or she speaks, the hearer of his or her words knows that this message of God is true… The HAND is symbolic of AUTHORITY… There is power in these MESSENGERS WORDS. So those who hear what these SONS AND DAUGHTERS of God say, have no doubt that this “Angel” is telling the absolute truth.
And when we hear the TRUTH of the MESSAGE as John heard it … that is when the great MYSTERY of the KINGDOM OF GOD comes to an end. It is no longer a mystery to us but now it is OPEN and CLEAR. This is the time, we will UNDERSTAND that the MYSTERY is “CHRIST IN US”. And when we understand this, the THINGS WE LEARNED before ARE NO LONGER VALID.
This last passage and the next are really a throw back to what Daniel said. Notice the similarity.
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished
When there is TIME NO MORE, then people understand that all we have is the MOMENT! And in that MOMENT as Jesus said before giving up the ghost, we understand IT IS FINISHED. Meaning, if you can hear it, whatever is now has already been. No one will be lost, nothing can fail, because it is FINISHED!
and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
We don’t have time for the lies we once believed. The TRUTH is at HAND (in our grasp/understanding)… The Hope of Glory is finally understood. “Christ IN YOU”. Old things (traditions/beliefs) pass away and EVERYTHING BECOMES NEW (Alive) And we exist only for the MOMENT!
7But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
Well, that should be confirmation for you. All of this is a symbolic telling of how the TRUTH is revealed to us, and how it is revealed to others who in return share it with the rest of the world. Shouting, IT IS FINISHED!
This next verse, really proves this article. The SEVENTH ANGEL (which is the complete/finished message of God understood) when it is HEARD (believed) … THE MYSTERY OF GOD IS FINISHED… There is no more mystery, no more spooky demons and ghouls, no more worries of eternal torture, or fears of monsters crawling out of some literal pit. No more being tossed too and fro with every WIND OF DOCTRINE. No more worrying about what to eat, what to wear, how to act, how to pray, fasting, etc etc… When you finally understand the TRUTH as John did… IT IS FINISHED.
You become as GOD’S CHILD, because that is who YOU HAVE ALWAYS BEEN but forgot (died) the instant you took upon yourself the cares of the world/SIN mentality/ignorance. But in this moment we understand that everything that came before this moment MUST BE PUT AWAY! As God revealed his truth to the Prophets of the past, now that TRUTH is revealed to us and we no longer need to go back and forth looking for it.
Now we must BECOME ONE WITH IT (assimilate it)… We must digest it and make it known to the world.
8And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
The day God enlightens us with the TRUTH, the day the BOOK IS OPENED FOR US to understand… is the SAME DAY that we MUST TAKE that BOOK… We must TAKE THAT KNOWLEDGE… In that moment, we want to TAKE WHAT WE’VE LEARNED, and share this great REVELATION to all.
9And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
And when we take this book, we then have to DEVOUR IT WHOLE! We can’t pick and choose which part of the truth we want to believe… We have to take the ENTIRE MESSAGE and we eat it up.
When you eat something, like an apple, the APPLE becomes YOU. The same is true for the THINGS OF GOD. We must allow the truth of God to become ONE WITH US… Christ MUST take over.
John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.
We must BECOME ONE with it, we must CHEW ON IT (think about it, contemplate it)… we MUST DIGEST IT! And this truth, when we first take it in is sweet as honey, this TRUTH is the PROMISE LAND, it is ENLIGHTENMENT… It is a LAND FLOWING OF MILK AND HONEY and at first yes we embrace it and we revel in the wonder of how much God loves us, and how God will complete creation in Victory… And when those Words are in our mouths and they are spoken to others… They are sweet indeed.
But when that TRUTH hits our bellies (Our carnal nature, our worldly side) It makes it bitter. Your old man is not going to want to give up the throne. This GREAT FINISHED TRUTH AND WORK will make your belly bitter. Who you THINK YOU ARE (your carnal soulish nature) is your BELLY! God formed you there, as he formed Adam in the Dust. But the BELLY (who you think you are, will not readily and happily receive WHO YOU REALLY ARE) – because that means the OLD CARNAL MAN must be cast off.
For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth
The serpent (carnal soulish nature of man) goes about on it’s belly.
And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life
The Truth is not EASILY digested. At first it may sound great, but when you really take it in (Ingest it) it changes everything. Your carnal nature has only known deceit, it won’t readily receive TRUTH.
They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit
Our lives become different after eating this Book… Our lives now seem to be filled with trials, and loneliness, and suffering… But we must remember, it is the path of the cross that leads us into the kingdom and this is what makes our bellies bitter… we don’t want to be filled with the knowledge that we must love all, put others first, and forgive even the most heinous of criminals.
strong>And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter
When we first hear the truth, we understand how life may be hard, we hear how we may be persecuted, hated, forsaken, and despised for simply knowing and preaching a GOD OF LOVE. We hear how will be become men and women of sorrows… But when the TRUTH is heard much like JOHN, we DON’T CARE!
Give us the book we say… Give us the TRUTH… When we hear the Truth of the Kingdom it doesn’t matter what we suffer because it will be nothing compared to the glory that will be revealed in us after the dust has settled and the light is shown.
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
Now we have the Truth, now we know everything there is to know about God… Now we ARE the SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD… and NOW we MUST PROPHESY to EVERYONE…
We MUST become A MIGHTY ANGEL ourselves! The First thing that happens is we begin to look at the world through different eyes… We begin to see everything that is right and everything that is wrong with humanity.
1And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
Now we begin to measure, examine, test and try everything inside of us. We measure the TEMPLE (OUR SOUL)
1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Judgment begins IN us, for us. The MESSAGE OF TRUTH casts out all that is a LIE. We begin to see the worst parts of us, and slowly the Temple is rebuilt (we are cleansed)
2But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
We understand that anything OUTSIDE OF US, is of no importance. We no longer put our faith in something far from us, our faith is now SOLELY PLACED WITHIN. We don’t need to JUDGE OTHERS outside of us, we only judge and measure WITHIN THE TEMPLE.
The outer court is ALSO our Flesh, or carnal and worldly desires. This is OUTSIDE THE TEMPLE and it is NOT TO BE MEASURED… it is NOT TO BE COUNTED! The Flesh profits nothing… and this is why the Flesh is left to destroy itself… And yes for a time the FLESH does trample and torment THE TRUTH OF GOD… The Flesh does persecute the Spirit… But, at this point in our walk, God tells us, his MESSENGERS, HIS SONS, HIS ANGELS! To leave the FLESH, LEAVE worldly thinking people alone, for NOW! He only wants the REMNANT, the first fruits. We are told to MEASURE the TEMPLE and only the TEMPLE.
I hope you enjoyed this look into Revelation Chapter 10. I encourage you all to visit my dear friends, Mary and Ernie Kroeger’s website… http://www.thegoodseed.org. They have been studying and dissecting the book of Revelation for years. We may see some things differently, but I believe their breakdown of the book of revelation is definately worth a look, as I probably won’t break down the entire book as they have.
Peace to you all, Jacob

Who are we? Why are we here? What is heaven? What is hell? A short video blog by Jacob Israel about the mystery of life and who we are in it all. And Who we are is AMAZING.
