Spiritual Passover - Part 2
Scriptures Commented On (In Order Of Appearance): 1 Cor. 5:7, Rom. 7:4, Ex. 12:7, Is.41:14, Gen. 2:18, Rev. 19:17-18, Ex. 12:8, 1 Cor. 5:7-8, Psalms 149:5-9, 1 Cor, 15:42-45, Job 14:7-9, Lk. 11:23-26 02/03/99 - The Spiritual Passover - Part 2
<LivingEM>: As I was saying.... The Feast of Tabernacles is a Latter Rain doctrine which the Lord has never directed me to. I am not saying that it is untrue, just that the Lord has never spoken to me about it, so I am not qualified to comment on whether or not it is synonymous with glorification.
I do know, however, that Tabernacles, as it is being preached today, is not the spiritual feast that the Church is waiting for, because we have not experienced the spiritual Passover yet.
The Lord just reminded me that the physical feast of Tabernacles is the time that the Hebrews build booths in their backyards and live in them for a period of time. This could indicate glorification, the liberation from our present earthly house. But it could also mean liberation from our Old Man, or the body of sin. That is all the information that I have on the subject.
The Church is waiting to experience the spiritual Passover. It makes no sense to me to say that Jesus experienced the first two feasts for us, and now we are waiting to personally experience the third feast. If this is true, why didn't Jesus experience the third feast for us also?
1st Cor. 5:7, purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us.
<LivingEM> This verse means that we should purge ourselves of our sin nature because this is the reason that Christ was sacrificed for us -- that we should receive what we need to purge ourselves.
Paul is telling us that Jesus did His part to give us what we need to go on, so now that we have it, we should go on. What did we receive as a result of Jesus' sacrifice? What is our inheritance in Christ Jesus?
<JSNGSNG>: To become his sons
<LivingEM>: What do we receive that makes us sons?
<LAMB4114>: The way was opened for us to come forth in the mind of Christ.
<LivingEM>: Yes, the mind of Christ, and the power to overcome our present condition of sinful mind. We, the personality, are married to our mind. Who is the mind that we are born with?
<LAMB4114>: The carnal mind, the offspring of the serpent.
LivingEM: Yes, the carnal mind is our husband. This is why Paul tells us to live as though we were already divorced from her.
Rom 7:4, Wherefore, my brethren, ye also have become dead to the law, by the body of Christ, that ye should be married to another, even to him that is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
<LivingEM>: We are to reject our present husband, the carnal mind, and live as though we were already married to the body of Christ-- that is, The Lord Jesus wherever He is appearing -- so that we can bring forth fruit -- so that Christ Jesus can be conceived and matured in us also. Brethren, you must be impregnated by Christ Jesus before you can bring forth the manchild.
But getting back to the spiritual Passover and the reason that Jesus, the Christ, was sacrificed for us -- He was sacrificed so that He could be liberated from His flesh body and ascend into a higher, spiritual life form which could be imparted to all of humanity at the same time.
We have recently found out that the "body of sin" is the combined etheric and astral bodies. The body of righteousness, or the body of Christ, then, is the combined higher centers of the true timeline: That is, Christ Jesus in the individual ascended to the mental plane, joined with the glorified Jesus in the 7th energy center. The Body of Christ is Christ Jesus in a man who is in continuous communication with the Lord Jesus, who is above.
The man, Jesus, went to the cross so that all of humanity could receive the needed equipment and strength to ascend into the heart center, where we join with the Lord Jesus. I told you previously that we join with the Lord in the brow (6th) energy center, but the Lord tells me that Christ Jesus in the individual joins with the Lord, Jesus, in the air, or ariel center, which is the heart center. Our carnal mind is consumed in the brow center.
So our equipment and strength is available to all who truly seek Him today, in the form of Christ Jesus. But we must use the equipment we receive it for the purpose that it is given, or we are in danger of losing it.
First, we are given the seed of the Holy Spirit, and that seed must produce something greater that itself. You may remember from a previous on-line meeting that the seed of the Word of God is the catalyst which begins the process that separates our human spirit from Satan. The seed of the Word of God can be likened to the enzyme that causes milk to curdle and separate into cheese and skimmed milk [curds and whey].
In the natural, the cheese is the object of desire, and the skimmed milk a byproduct of the process, but in the spiritual, it is the granules of earth that clump together so that the liquid [human spirit] can be liberated.
The Holy Spirit is given to point us to Christ, but the Holy Spirit is not the beginning and the end. Christ Jesus is the beginning and the end. The personality must go through the process of spiritual change and conversion which regenerates Christ Jesus, to become His reflection.
Each one of us must experience all three of the spiritual feasts, but we must first be cleansed. We must purge out the old leaven. If the old leaven, or the sins of our old nature, are not purged out, Christ Jesus will not regenerate and cover our carnal mind, the first born of the Primordial Serpent, Mother Earth. The carnal mind must either be covered, or slain. The personality whose carnal mind is covered by Christ Jesus receives eternal life, and the personality whose carnal mind is uncovered, physically dies when the carnal mind is slain.. Does anyone know what this means? Who is the first born?
<DANIEL42>: Carnal mind
<Myprecous1>: Carnal mind
<LivingEM>: Yes, the carnal mind is the first born of the Earth, the mother [womb] that bare Christ, the living one (Gen. 3:20). When the Earth impregnates herself she brings forth the carnal mind, but when the Earth is impregnated by Elohim [who is appearing today as the Lord Jesus], she brings forth Christ, the manchild.
So we see that in our natural example, Abraham had two sons, Isaac, the child of the promise, and Ishmael who was cast off, but became a great and spiritually powerful nation. But in the spiritual, which is the reality, it is reversed. The Mother Earth has two offspring, the second born, the child of promise, and her first born, the one who will be cast off and ultimately destroyed.
The firstborn of Mother Earth in every man shall be destroyed. The question is, will you be one who has the honor of destroying your own carnal mind and fighting on the side of righteousness in the battle of the ages? Or will you be among those who will be caught off guard, whose carnal mind will be destroyed without knowledge or understanding? Will you be a victim or a victor? The prosperity of this world is only an illusion. The only true security is in Christ Jesus. Does anyone remember what the blood on the doorpost means?
<JSNGSNG>: Angel of death passes over
<DANIEL42>: It represents Christ Jesus?
Ex 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts, and on the upper door post of the houses,
<LivingEM> The blood is the Spirit of Christ which is in Christ Jesus. Who is he passing over? Who is he overlaying? Who is He striking into?
<LAMB4114>: The carnal mind
<JSNGSNG>: Carnal mind
<LivingEM> The carnal mind is being destroyed. What part of us is the tenth that is being saved?
<LAMB4114>: Our personality.
<LivingEM>: Yes, our personality is being saved, but what part of our personality is Christ Jesus striking into and joining with?
<LAMB4114>: Our spirit.
<LivingEM>: He is joining with our spiritual virginity. Who is our spiritual virginity?
<JSNGSNG>: Fiery serpent
<DANIEL42>: Fiery serpent
<LAMB4114>: The fiery serpent
<LivingEM>: Yes. Christ Jesus wants to join with the fiery serpent, our spiritual virginity, and this joining covers her and us, the whole personality. Satan and Leviathan will be defeated and eventually destroyed, but we, the personality, are the worm that has the potential to be born as a dragon fly in the serpent's image, or a butterfly in the image of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Is. 41:14 Fear not thou worm Jacob and ye men of Israel, saith the Lord and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.
<LivingEM>: The promised help is that Christ Jesus will join with the fiery serpent, our spiritual potential; that we will be born in the image of righteousness, as Elohim's civilized, spiritual man, and not in the image of death, which is eternal torment.
Gen 2:18 And the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone, I will make him a help which is what he needs [meet] to stabilize him in the image of righteousness.
<LivingEM>: Sorry, all you guys that think this Scripture means a physical woman.
Let's go back to Ex. 12:7. We will use the Hebrew word translated "strike," Strong's 5414, twice, "to strike" and "to deliver up." Christ Jesus will strike into and join with the fiery serpent, and then He shall deliver her up to the second energy center which is above.
The energy centers are doorways into other spiritual planes, or worlds, or dimensions. Jesus said that He is the door, meaning the door to the Kingdom of God. The "energy centers above" are the energy centers of the true timeline.
The Hebrew word translated "side post," Strong's 4201, is derived from Strong's 2123, which means "the moving thing" or the "wild beast."
... and you shall deliver her up to the "upper door post" of the houses.....
<LivingEM>: The "upper door post" is speaking about the part that "overhangs." The brow (6th) energy center hangs over and protects the 5th and 4th centers. Who is waiting in the brow center?
JSNGSNG: Fortified Adam
LivingEM: Yes. What is his symbol?
Rev. 19:17, And I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God,
18, That ye may eat the flesh of the kings [of the lower energy centers], and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, ....
<LivingEM>: The horse is the personality, and the kings, captains and mighty men are the beings who inhabit the higher energy centers of the counterfeit timeline. The glorified Jesus Christ joins with Christ Jesus who is joined to the fiery serpent in the individual, and delivers her up to the eagles in the brow center.
How so? The fiery serpent is converted into a form which is incapable of joining with Leviathan [who will not exist anymore anyway] when the eagle consumes her. Therefore, the powers formed by Leviathan and the fiery serpent's perverse union, will cease to exist.
You see, the fiery serpent continues to be a wild beast after she is joined to Christ Jesus and ascended into the 5th energy center of the true time line, but the eagle consumes the fiery serpent and all of her potential offspring when Christ Jesus delivers her up to the brow (6th) center [the "upper door post" that overhangs all of the other energy centers], and she becomes a renewed creature.
The "upper door post" is the brow center, which is the 3rd energy center of the true time line, and the "two side posts" signify the 2nd energy center of the true timeline, where the fiery serpent is still a wild beast. The true timeline begins in the aerial center, which we know as the heart (4th) center. So when counting the energy centers of the true timeline alone, we say that the heart (4th) center is the first, the throat (5th) center is the second, and the brow (6th) center is the 3rd.
Ex 12:8 And they shall eat the flesh that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread, and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
<LivingEM>: And they shall eat the flesh of Leviathan, the night [the Primordial Serpent's dark shadow], because the eagle in the brow center shall burn the fiery serpent with fire, and they who are leavened bread [filled with sin] shall become unleavened bread [holy], as they go through bitter trials and experience the pain of facing their own sin nature.
1 Cor 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened, for even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us,
8, Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity of truth.
<LivingEM>: Brethren, those who are preaching "Tabernacles "are way ahead of themselves. Most of the Church has not even begun to experience the bitterness that comes from perceiving the depths of their own sin nature, weaknesses and shortcomings. And as far as I can see, the same men who are preaching that we are waiting for the Feast of Tabernacles, are also preaching against the exposure of sin.
But, on the other hand, I do see elements of the Passover in the Feast of Tabernacles. The Day of Atonement, for example, could signify the Passover. It is possible that the Feast of Tabernacles encompasses the whole experience of conversion. But if this is so, the Passover will still have to be experienced by the individual, one way or the other.
Psalms 149:5 Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud upon their beds,
6, Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hands,
7, To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people,
8, To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9, To execute upon them the judgment written, this honor have all his saints, praise ye the Lord.
Alternate Translation - Verse 5, Let the saints be joyful because of their hope of glorification, and let righteous spiritual speech vibrate forth from those who have risen out of their beds,
Alternate Translation - Verse 6, And let them enter into the street (mouth) of Adam, Elohim's thought form, and let the sword that has two teeth (Leviathan and the fiery serpent) become the phallus (hand) of King Adam,
Alternate Translation - Verse 7, That Jehovah should take vengeance upon Satan, the Heathen who inflicts (executes) punishment upon His people.
Alternate Translation - Verse 8 , That they might restrain the kings [of the counterfeit timeline] with spiritual chains, and the mortal men who they manifest through (nobles) with fetters of iron.
Alternate Translation - Verse 9, To execute upon themselves (their other, evil side) the judgments written, this honor have all the saints.
<LivingEM>: All of this comes after we receive the Holy Spirit. But Satan waits as an Angel of Light, to lead the ones who have not gone on down the path of destruction. Those who have used the strength of the Holy Spirit to force unwilling men to believe their doctrine, instead of purging themselves, are open to the seduction of the false revival that is overflowing the Christian world today.
I read a letter today from a man who spoke in tongues for many years. He has decided that tongues are not of God and will not use this "gift" any more. He goes on to say that the man who laid hands on him and imparted this "gift" to him years ago, struggles with character disorders, and, in particular, sexual problems. He says that the man yields to character flaws in many areas, yet, still has the ability to lay hands on people and impart tongues, slay them in the spirit, etc. He believes that the Pentecostal Church is going towards the false revival.
According to what I hear, it is very hard to find a church that has not not been touched by the false revival. I received a newsletter recently from a ministry that prayed me through a serious trial which almost killed me. I was shocked and disappointed to see that they are now selling books which promote the false revival. This is a deliverance and Sonship ministry which has been faithful in ministry to the Lord for more than 40 years. I sent them books and tapes several years ago, but they rejected this message. I thank God for everything that I have received from Him that keeps me rooted and grounded in the truth.
Did you know that there is an idolatry for the Holy Spirit in the Church.
1 Cor 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead, It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.
<LivingEM>: The seed of the Holy Spirit is sown into our corrupted carnal mind, but must join with the Spirit of Christ to regenerate Adam. [Christ Jesus], the Tree of Life. Those who refuse to give up "the gifts" when the Lord calls them to go on, are in danger of being seduced by the false gifts of the false revival..
43, It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory, it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.
<LivingEM>: The Holy Spirit joins with our human spirit which is flowing with Satan, to empower him to separate him from Satan, and to be joined to Christ. The word "dishonor" is used to describe Satan in our Alternate Translation of Jonah.
44, It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body, There is a natural body and there is a spiritual body.
<LivingEM>: The Holy Spirit is sown into the body of sin -- the combined etheric and astral bodies -- and is an integral part of the process that regenerates the Body of Christ, which is Christ Jesus in the individual joined to the Lord Jesus, above.
45, And so it is written, the first man Adam was made a living soul, the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
<LivingEM>: At first we are a carnal man under the influence of the Holy Spirit, but we cannot stay that way. We are called to be converted -- that is, transmuted into a new creature, a quickening spirit. This means that the spirit which imparts [quickens] the life of Christ Jesus in other men, is supposed to be formed in us. And, so, Adam, the living soul is regenerated in us. Adam [Christ Jesus] is the Tree of Life. The Holy Spirit is not the Tree of Life. The Holy Spirit is the cleansed waters of the glorified Jesus Christ.
Job 14:7-9, For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease, Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground, yet THROUGH THE SCENT OF WATER IT WILL BUD, and bring forth boughs like a plant.
<LivingEM>: The Holy Spirit is the water that regenerates the Tree of Life. What is the Tree of Life? The Tree of Life is Jehovah's virile seed grafted to the cleansed waters of the Holy Spirit. Adam [Christ Jesus] is another name for the Tree of Life. The mind of Christ alone is Jehovah's virile seed, but he is weak without the waters of life, because the waters of life are spiritual energy.
Christ Jesus in the mortal individual is no match for the high witchcraft power of evil immortals, even when Jehovah's virile seed is grafted to the waters of life. Christ Jesus in the individual must pierce into the heart (4th) energy center and be joined to the Lord, Jesus, to overcome the powers and principalities of this world. And what else is necessary? We talked about it in this very message. Our sin nature must be sacrificed and consumed by the eagle in the brow (6th) energy center.
Well, now, this is one involved process of conversion into the promised nature of the Lord, Jesus. Yes, indeed, and the work is not done after death. It is done in the here and now.
So we see that there are small pockets of believers who are withdrawing from "Pentecost," which is being swallowed up by the false revival. An even smaller group is willing to look at the hidden sins of their own heart and deal with them, and even most of these are waiting for the rapture, which is a false hope. How can this be? The Church is in disarray! We are being overrun and very few are aware of it. Brethren, those who can see it and hear this message have a great responsibility, because great tribulation is already descending upon this country and, in particular, upon the Church.
Why don't you say "the whole world" Sheila? Because wrath has always been upon the non-Christian world. It is nothing new for them. But the unclean spirit of paganism is descending upon the Christian lands at an alarming rate of speed.
Brethren, this is Noah's flood waters! Satan, signified by the sea, is overflowing this land. Some will survive and be caught up to the spiritual authority of the brow center, and they will teach and help the other survivors.
Our responsibility is to work our own program so that the blood of Jesus (Spirit of Christ) joins with the fiery serpent, our spiritual virginity. We must cooperate fully with Christ Jesus to raise the fiery serpent up into the brow center where the eagle will consume her, and seal off the centers of the counterfeit timeline, the doorway for impure spiritual life.
Luke 11:23, He that is not with me is against me, and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth.
Luke 11:23 - Alternate Translation, The one who does not gather his sin nature together with me in the brow center, scatters his energy, and scattered energy opens the lower energy centers.
24 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest and finding none, he saith, I will return unto my house from whence I came out.
<LivingEM>: The Greek word translated "man" signifies "Adam." Adam rises from the dead when the virile seed is grafted to Satan, the waters of creation. Adam's energy boils Satan and the water/energy of the individual ascends into the higher centers of the true time line. Satan, the unclean spirit in the individual, "departs" from the lower centers when she is distilled.
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, SEEKING REST
none, he saith, I will return unto my house from whence I came out.
<LivingEm>: The Greek word translated "seeking" can also be translated "to plot against one's life," and the Greek word translated "rest" can be translated "intermission" or "cessation of motion." The significance of the word "rest" is that the unclean spirit is motionless without water - like a fish on the shore - and "to move" signifies the vibration of spiritual speech, which engraves the personality with Satan's nature.
1/2 Luke 11:24 - Alternate Translation, [Leviathan] plots to kill Adam, [the one who] separates [the fiery serpent from Leviathan], and silences [Satan], the impure spirit, by drying out the lower energy centers,
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest AND FINDING
NONE, he saith, I will return unto my house from whence I came out.
<LivingEM>: We are translating the word "none" the fiery serpent, and the Greek word translated "find" can also be translated "to perceive." There is an untranslated word here which means "at the time that."
2/2 Luke 11:24 - Alternate Translation, And when [Leviathan] finds the opportunity to communicate [sexually] with the fiery serpent, [Satan], the impure spirit, says, I will return to my house that I was forced out of,
<LivingEM>: The significance here is that sin creates the opportunity for [Leviathan] to communicate [engage in spiritual intercourse] with the fiery serpent, which re-establishes their marriage and empowers Satan, the impure waters, to flow back into the lower centers where she "moves" or "vibrates" to engrave the personality with her nature (thought life).
Luke 11:25 - And when he cometh, he findeth it swept and garnished.
<LivingEM>: "To sweep" can mean "to pass over, or through, a surface or medium with a continuous movement," "to clear," "remove" or "carry off" or "wipe" out. I suggest to you that "to sweep" in the context of this verse is talking about the removal of the marks of Satan's nature. "To garnish" can be translated "in the correct moral order."
Luke 11:25 - Alternate Translation, But when [Satan], the impure spirit, arrived in the lower energy centers, she found that the marks of her nature had been removed [from the fiery serpent], and that [the whole personality] was in a righteous relationship with Christ Jesus.
Luke 11:26 THEN GOETH HE, AND TAKETH to him seven other spirits more wicked than himself; and they enter in, and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. (KJV)
<LivingEM>: The Greek word translated "goeth" can also be translated "to remove," and the Greek word translated "other," means "the other one of two."
<LivingEM>: The word "more" as in "more evil" is not in the Greek.
Satan and Leviathan are the two major parts of the carnal mind.
<LivingEM> The word "seven" means "to complete," or "to fill up." "Enter" can be translated "to come to life." "Dwell" can be translated "divine powers." "Man" is "Adam."
Luke 11:26 - Alternate Translation, Then [Satan, the impure spirit] who [Adam/Christ Jesus] removed, associated herself with [Leviathan], the other part of her hurtful, spiritual self, and the Serpent's completed timeline came into existence, and the supernatural powers of that place, and the last Adam [who backslides] is worse off than the first Adam [who never advanced spiritually].
<LivingEM>: When the fiery serpent that is married to the resurrected Adam [Christ Jesus] departs from Him and remarries Leviathan, that personality becomes more evil than when she was first married to Leviathan.
I have been saying this for a long time. Someone who is spiritually powerful in Christ Jesus becomes a witch when they give themselves over to their evil inclinations. Your spirituality does not decline when you depart from Christ Jesus. It remains with you. The only difference is the spirit that you serve.
This is happening today in the false revival. All of the gifts of the Holy Spirt are transferring over to the Angel of Light, which is Satan. The higher you ascend in Christ Jesus, the more dangerous you will be if your lower nature recaptures you. You are also very dangerous if your judgment is wrong and you pray against or criticize someone who is manifesting Christ.
We are to be harmless as doves, but as wise as the serpent's crowd, and the only way we can accomplish this is by dying to our sin nature and giving our thought life over to the Lord.
How do we give our thought life over to the Lord? We tell Him that we desire to live out of His mind, and He helps us to identify our sin nature, and reject her. He will help us, but we must do the work. God help us all in this difficult hour.
Father, in the Name of Jesus, I forgive the sins of the many. I pray for your mercy upon us all, oh God, which I know will manifest as corrective judgment. Do what must be done, oh God. Help us all to be strong to work with you, and to fulfill our responsibilities and obligations to your Kingdom. Give us wisdom, oh God, and help us to hear your voice and follow after you. Let it be known that quiet, steady righteousness is our solid foundation. The gifts are profitable, but must be under the control of righteousness. Engrave us with your image, oh God, and deliver us from the gripof the evil one. Let your will and purposes be done in the earth, Lord, and let your Name be exalted forever. Amen and amen.
Good night all. God bless you
