Real & Spiritual Applications
18At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into captivity. KJV
Egypt is in the mind of God's people: first in the natural, then in the spiritual. God broke the yoke of natural Israel to deliver the Hebrew children, and now it is happening in the spirit. God's people, Jews and Christians, are in bondage in their mind to spiritual Egypt, which is now manifesting in the whole Western culture. Wherever spiritual Egypt manifests, the culture becomes Egyptian.
The Lord is about the break the yoke of Egypt, and everyone who is in bondage to Egypt in their mind will experience tribulation. The Church believes that they will be delivered from the tribulation, but Christ is coming to break the power of witchcraft in God's people.
We are the property of the Lord Jesus Christ. He has the right to inhabit us and to have the use of our members, to be our mind, and to use our bodies as He would use them. The truth is that, at this time we are all possessed by the principalities of this world that are both good and evil. Even those who were under the influence of the righteous mind of God are incarnated by the Woman, which is fallen Adam.
We will either leave Egypt willingly, or we will be dragged out, but no one is leaving without the understanding that we are being given in this ministry. The Day of the Lord is at hand, and it is now. When God prophesies a special message like this, it means something very big is happening. He never does anything without telling His prophets.
If you are in this ministry, you are either a priest of God, or are called to the priesthood. There are rules which apply to priests which do not apply to the rest of the people. The Bible says that we are all kings and priests.
6And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. KJV
However, just because you pick up a Bible and read it, answer an altar call, or speak in tongues, does not make you a king or a priest. To be a king or a priest means that you have an office. A priest wears a particular type of garment to be recognized as a priest, and a king wears a crown and other regalia to be recognized as a king. In the spiritual world, we are recognized only by spiritual discernment. Those who do not recognize us, and fail to act accordingly, suffer the spiritual consequences. Unfortunately, the average person does not relate the misfortunes that come upon him to his disrespect of God’s royalty.
8In the same way, these people—who claim authority from their dreams—live immoral lives, defy authority, and scoff at supernatural beings.
9But even Michael, one of the mightiest of the angels, did not dare accuse the devil of blasphemy, but simply said, “The Lord rebuke you!” NLT
This is a day of spiritual darkness. It is a day of judgment and tribulation. Nobody is being raptured. The tribulation is coming to God's people to deliver them out of Egypt in their mind. The Hebrew children were delivered out of Egypt as a nation, but this time each spiritual Israelite will be delivered by a personal tribulation.
I am not a preacher of destruction, but when there is an earthquake or some other tragedy, even though it is happening to many people at the same time, each man will be saved from that destruction, based upon his personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. In this dispensation, salvation is happening, one man at a time, even though the circumstances of tribulation may affect more than one person at a time.
1Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
The land is His people.
2A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. KJV
A great people and strong are the people of God.
3A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. KJV
Nothing shall escape them, refers to the human followers of Jesus being brought into their priesthood. It is Christ within the people. In order to go back to the Garden of Eden, everything that is not of Christ, is being burnt up and left behind us.
The purpose of the tribulation is to bring spiritual Israel into right standing with God. The Lord will deal with the evil nations after the sons of God stand up in full power. This will not happen before the tribulation, though, which is the war between Christ within you and your carnal mind. If you are learning this message, you are called to be a priest of God.
4The Lord hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. KJV
1 Tim 2:5
5For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; KJV
The Kingdom of God is coming. Christ Jesus, the only Mediator between God and man, will be appearing in a company of believers who will speak His words. They will be believers who understand the Doctrine of Christ, the message God is teaching us here in this ministry. Jesus will be revealed by His Son within us, and we will be standing between God and the people, who are without understanding. But, before we can stand up, Christ Jesus within us has to burn up everything in us that is not of God.
16Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.
Those who are skillful of lamentation to wailing are professional mourners.
17And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I shall pass through thee, saith the LORD.
18Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
The whole Church is waiting for the Day of the Lord. Are you going to be liberated, or are you going unto judgment? Will you be experiencing the tribulation, or will Christ Jesus be standing up in you?
19As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.
20Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? KJV
There will be destruction everywhere. The transition from being a layman believer to a priest, is a day of darkness and gloominess. When God calls you to serve as His priest, it is a day of the destruction of life as we know it. He starts by changing us from within, before he changes our environment. We experience pain, suffering, and loneliness, because we are dying to everything that we were born to believe is good in life. The darkness and the gloominess is in our mind and emotions.
The life of Christ is being born in us. Our outer shell is being changed from an unholy garment to a holy garment, and the only explanation that we have for our pain, comes from our understanding of the Doctrine of Christ.
The end is very near and the Lord is about to appear. He is going to appear in people who are understanding this message first. Then tribulation will go to the Church and to the Jews. There will be thousands, if not millions of people in pain, holding their loins like a woman in travail, not understanding what is happening. According to Daniel, we will be among those who will teach the many, but will not be easy. It is a birth.
14The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
15That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
16A day of the trumpet and alarm against the fenced cities, and against the high towers.
The fenced cities are the carnal minds of God's people who will not hear the truth. They are believing the doctrine of the carnal mind, which is Satan and Leviathan, who are presently occupying all of humanity.
17And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.
That Hebrew word men is Adam (mankind), which means fallen Adam.
18Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the LORD'S wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of his jealousy: for he shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land. KJV
Satan, Leviathan and all of their cohorts have to be cast out of the land; and we are the land.
The Book of Ezra, Chapter 10, begins with the Jews' return to Jerusalem to rebuild their temple. There is a clear distinction in Ezra between the people and the priests. You need to know who you are. A priest offers sacrifices on behalf of the common people, so that God will forgive their sins and hear their prayers. But, you say, Jesus is at the right hand of the Father and already does that for us. The answer is that, the priest is Christ, the seed of the Lord Jesus Christ, in you.
The process begins when you recognize your sins, confess them, and sorrow unto repentance, because here is no forgiveness without repentance. Then Christ forgives your sins and purges them. The Blood of Jesus is not His Blood that fell out on the ground, nor is it up in heaven somewhere. The Blood of Jesus is the spiritual male seed of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is applied to our soul when he forgives our sins.
We are a priest when Christ dwells in us, is active in us, and we minister to others. We will have the ability to show the people where there is sin in their lives, not out of the fear of hell and death, but by the spirit of righteousness. We will be able to convince them that troublesome circumstances in their lives are actually the consequences of particular sins, and when they sorrow unto repentance, the Blood of the Lamb, in the form of Christ, Jesus’ seed within us, the perfect sacrifice, will cleanse us from all sin.
You can do this yourself. You can be your own priest if Christ is revealing sin in you and that revelation is producing a change in your life -- not just a change of behavior, but a change of heart and mind which produces behavioral change. Behavioral change alone is just on the surface, but when Christ responds to your pain and aggression, rather than Satan and Leviathan, you have entered into the priesthood.
The death and resurrection of Jesus are exposing the roots of the evil events in our world, which have been getting worse and worse over the last 2,000 years
When Jesus hung on the cross, He said, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. Many Jews believe that ever since Jesus was born, there has been more bloodshed and war than there ever was at any time in the whole world.
34Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. KJV
The entire world went under conviction for sin when Jesus was crucified. We are destroying ourselves because the hidden sins of humanity have been exposed. I said that to a rabbi once, but he did not receive it. Jesus forgave the world, and the sins of the world have manifested to a degree that we have never seen before. We are facing global destruction. The Illuminati has been revealed. The powers and principalities that are ruling at the very top (the world calls them aliens) are foreign to humanity.
Cain, the spiritual offspring of the Snake has been revealed to the world, all in the last 2,000 years since Jesus said the words, Father, forgive them. He was not only talking about the Jews. He was also talking about the Romans. He was talking about the whole world. When Jesus was being crucified, He said, The prince of this world is judged. What did Jesus mean?
7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. KJV
He meant that circumstances and events were about to unfold which would completely reveal the truth about the prince of this world. He is not some little demon called Satan. Prince always refers to a spiritual entity, a high principality that was involved with the incarnation of this world, and the seed of the Woman who rebelled against Adam, her husband, and married the Snake, who is also called the prince of the power of the air. King refers to the man that the spiritual entity is being revealed through.
Our bodies are proof of the sin of adultery, which, according to the test in the Book of Numbers, is that the woman’s belly swells up. Well, the spiritual Woman swelled up and gave birth to humanity, a spiritually deformed child – so there it is!
The troubles of the world will not go away until the adultery between the Woman and the Snake come to an end and the transgression ceases. The transgression is the incest between the Woman and Cain, the illegitimate spiritual offspring of the Woman and the Snake.
When the adultery and the transgression end, life as we know it will cease to exist. The first step of deliverance is to divest the spiritual Woman of her throne, which are the people of humanity. She is the harlot of Revelation, and has to be thrown out of our vessels. Then, there will be a transition from this physical body, which is the product of the adultery between the Woman and the Snake, to a spiritual body, which will be filled with Jesus’ life.
27And when he hath made her to drink the water, then it shall come to pass, that, if she be defiled, and have done trespass against her husband, that the water that causeth the curse shall enter into her, and become bitter, and her belly shall swell, and her thigh shall rot: and the woman shall be a curse among her people. KJV
The transition begins with the Lord Jesus Christ fully occupying us in our present form, and will take place, one man at a time, within a timeframe designated by God.
Adultery is the foundational sin that produced the mess we have today. It is a very serious offense. We laugh at it in this country, but Marriage was not given to us to make us happy. Marriage is an institution that God gave to humanity to keep order in society. It is a vehicle by which we raise godly, healthy-of-body-and-mind children; a vehicle by which we can keep our sanity; a vehicle by which people can deal with the natural instincts of their fallen state, without sin. Marriage is given to control sexual activity.
I am not against sex, but when you see the fruit of unbridled sexual pursuit, you will start to understand what I am talking about. Take a look at what is happening in the world today, people selling their 8-year-old little girls into sexual slavery for money, for example. The degenerates of society are not happy with a woman, so sometimes they want a man. When they are not happy with a mature woman, they want a little girl. Then, after they get the little girl, they want a little boy; but they are not happy with him either, so they torture and murder. All these evils are associated with the sex act.
35But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: KJV
Jesus said, there is no marriage or giving in marriage in heaven. Human, physical sexual intercourse is an activity of the body, which is the fruit of the adultery between the Woman and the Snake. What is the spiritual root that produces the pressure in this world to turn the act of sexual intercourse into an act of adultery? Is it the intention of the spiritual Woman to deliberately produce adultery in this world? Or is it the natural outplaying of the act of the spiritual adultery that produced these bodies?
Why are people not happy with sex in their own marriage? Why commit adultery? The act of spiritual adultery between the woman and the Snake is the driving force that produced humanity, so people have a natural built-in inclination towards both spiritual (worshiping other gods) and physical adultery.
Bigamy (having two husbands or wives at the same time) and polygamy (having three or more husbands or wives at the same time) are forms of adultery. They are different, however, because the concept of cheating, deceit and betrayal are not present, and the man (usually the man) accepts responsibility for the women and children of the marriage.
Marriage is God's answer to help us live a godly life while we are still in this flesh. He has given us families, but marriage and family life is difficult. You have to fight against your own sin to make marriage a positive experience. Women have to yield, and the man should yield also.
If you are a woman, and your boss, your pastor, or your husband says something to you which you do not agree with, go into your prayer closet and talk to God about it. If He vindicates you, fine, but if He does not vindicate you, shut your mouth. God wants peace. If you are the one who steals the peace, you are wrong, and that is the end of the discussion.
Human beings have a natural, built-in inclination towards sin, which is inherited, and the root of sin is sexual in nature. We are pre-programmed, through that built-in drive to sin, toward sexual sin, and every other sin breaks down our resistance to sexual sin. There was a time when we raised our children to resist sexual sin, and the great transgression of teenagers was to act out their rebellion by badmouthing their parents. When I was a teenager, the big sin was smoking a cigarette.
The point is, that after you break every other rule, the ultimate violation of God’s Law, which is given to keep humanity from destruction, strips the conscience of every sexual restraint. When Cain, the product of spiritual adultery and incest, the root that mortal humanity is incarnated upon, is completely free, it will take more and more to satisfy you sexually, until you sink down into the depths of depravity. You will not even know what happened to you.
Adultery is the root sin that destroyed the creation of God, and is seeking today to destroy all of God's attempts to restore us to the immortality of innocence. Adultery, both spiritual and physical, is the bottom line. It is a major step in the personal and societal descent into hell.
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. KJV
The Scripture clearly says, one man, one wife. As soon as there is a child born of the marriage, divorce is no longer an option, because divorce rips apart the soul of the child that is the spiritual fruit, a hybrid if you will, of the souls of the husband and wife. The husband and wife and the child are now one flesh, or one soul. For the husband or the wife to join with another partner while their first mate is still alive creates conflict and spiritual and emotional chaos in the universe of the family soul. The Jewish wisdom of the Zohar teaches that, even a legitimate second marriage for a widow can cause spiritual chaos if the soul of the woman is still attached to her first husband, in which event the second marriage fails.
The laws of this land say that you can kill babies, marry homosexuals, and get divorced at will, but God says otherwise. God says that once you have a child, divorce is no longer an option. Further, should you divorce and marry again despite the prohibition, you become an adulteress, and your children are illegitimate.
This is the word of God to the whole Church. The entire Church is called to be priests, but in particular, this message is for anyone who is being raised up as a spiritual priest at this time. The Lord is about to appear very soon, but He will not appear in anyone who is in adultery. Divorce is not permitted, except through the death of your spouse.
I heard this word twenty years ago when I was still hoping to get remarried, and I thought, it is crazy to think that you have to give up the rest of your life because your marriage did not work out. But today I know that this is the truth. Your personal happiness is not the most important thing in the world. The most important thing is the child that you brought into existence.
What if there are extenuating circumstances? What if your husband is a criminal? What if he has been violating your children? Then you leave, but you stay alone. There is no remarriage. Did your marriage go bad? Then your primary concern should be towards your children, because our children are the next generation, the future of society and civilization.
The Christian world lived this way for a couple of centuries in England and here in the US, but, after that, we thought we were smarter than God. We said, This statute cannot be true, so we are going to change it. We will allow people to get married a second time, and a third time, etc. So, today, some have married two, three, and four times, with a child from each of those marriages. Children, stepchildren – families that are all mixed up. The culture is deteriorating into chaos.
You and I are not the most important thing in the world. Society is more important than the individual. The preservation of a Godly society is more important than personal happiness. God will give you personal happiness, but not in the way that you think or desire. If you insist that your personal happiness depends upon being married, and your marriage is not good, you will be disappointed.
God's Word is clear: Do not break up families, and do not bring your children to live in a house that is under another man, or another woman, while their mother or father is alive. If you do, you are an adulteress or an adulterer.
I saw the spiritual principles that we are discussing here in a movie recently -- a true story, about a British countess whose mother married her off to an aristocrat who was in love with a woman that was not qualified to bear his children. This young, delightful girl thought that she would be happy for the rest of her life, but her husband did not want anything to do with her other than to impregnate her.
The movie took place in England in the 16th or 17th century, and portrayed the emotional torment that the young woman went through. Then, when she could not bear it any longer, she went to her mother begging for help, asking her to agree that she should get a divorce due to her terrible circumstances of her life. But the answer was no, even though her husband’s behavior was appalling. Her mother agreed with her husband that, if she left, she would never see her children again.
The count had moved his mistress into the marital residence. It was a very big house, but they were all there together, and her mother would still not agree to a divorce. Apparently, the mother had that kind of power in those days. Today, parents have no power at all in such matters. The countess was denied a divorce, and she made the adjustment. Of course, she stopped sleeping with her husband, who lived in the same house with his mistress, and, eventually, she got involved in politics and activities that benefitted humanity. She made a whole new life for herself on the foundation of that torture, and raised her children in the same house that she and their husband and his mistress lived in. At the time that I told you about that movie, I said, I do not think I could have endured that.
This, of course, is an extreme example, but it demonstrates the principles upon winch a stable society is founded and maintained. It is a glaring contrast to the individual-based narcissism that society is experiencing today, which has produced a generation of emotionally unstable, drug addicted, latch-key children, and young adults who are incapable of raising their own children.
I recently wrote a book called, What About Marriage? In that book I said that after about ten years you should be eligible to remarry (that is how long it takes the marital soul tie to dissolve), but today I understand that this is only true when there are no offspring of the marriage, which is rare. The truth is that divorce is not allowed when there are children. You do not break up the household unless your lives are in danger, and if that is the case, then you abide alone. That is what Paul said.
1 Cor 7:10-11
10And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
11But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife. KJV
Things have changed in this modern world. Divorce and gay marriage are now legal, and the U.S. Supreme Court says that you can kill babies and sell their aborted body parts. What is coming next?
God’s Law says that when you marry, a new entity, a family soul is born. To put your children under the authority of a step-parent when their biological parent is alive, is a spiritual and emotional perversion that tears their young souls with divided loyalties. Children never recover from divorce. They may think that they do, but they do not. The wounds are very deep.
The law of man cannot discount the law of God, which says that service to God and humanity should be a man or woman’s primary concern and goal in life. This is not a very popular word, because our whole culture, today, is built upon a false belief that our personal happiness is number one in this life.
Do you want to prosper? Do you want your children to prosper? Do you want to live in a free country and a free world? Then, your life must be dedicated to God, His righteousness, His holiness, and the order He establishes. Man has no right to change that order. You hope for the best. You pray for your children. You pray they should be happy in marriage and that you should be happy in marriage. Maybe if you try a little harder when there is no way out, you can make your marriage work. Your life might get better, and it might not, but divorce always results in chaos.
The Lord is about to stand up in His people, but He is not standing up in anyone who is in adultery. You ask, What if somebody really loves God and is serving Him with all their strength, but they were divorced twenty years ago, remarried, and have children with another person? The answer is, They are in adultery, and their children are illegitimate.
When I first came to the Lord, there was a woman in the church I was attending who had been living with a man for twenty years. Back then, the Church preached, if you want to be in right standing with God, either marry him or leave. If he will not marry you, then you have to leave. Nobody had a problem with that message, and she left that man.
If you are in adultery, your marriage is not legal and you cannot marry another man until your first husband dies. You need to leave. This is the word of the Lord today to the priests. I do not know how this will affect others who are not called to the priesthood at this time, but in the Book of Ezra the message is to the priests.
A rabbi I know denies that (according to the Book of Ezra) the men had to leave their wives and children in order to be in right standing with God. He told me, their illegal wives converted to Judaism, but the Scripture says otherwise.
17And they made an end with all the men that had taken strange wives by the first day of the first month. KJV
2And Shechaniah the son of Jehiel, one of the sons of Elam, answered and said unto Ezra, We have trespassed against our God, and have taken strange wives of the people of the land: yet now there is hope in Israel concerning this thing. KJV
In other words, we did all these things because we thought we would never be returning to Israel. The church is in all kinds of sin today, because they think, Nothing has changed since our fathers went to sleep, so why worry?
44All these had taken strange wives: and some of them had wives by whom they had children. KJV
The Pharisees came to Jesus asking about divorce. They said, Divorce was legal under the laws of Moses, so why are you saying it is illegal? Jesus answered, Because of the hardness of your hearts.
7They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?
8He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
Meaning, their hearts were not responsive to God. They did not understand what marriage was all about.
9And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery. KJV
Marriage is not about pleasure. If you are not happy with your wife or husband for any reason, you should know that marriage is about living an orderly life that is acceptable to God. So, happy or not you should continue to be His representative in holiness.
If you married to satisfy your sexual needs, there is no condemnation, but you should deal with your mate in a godly manner.
You should understand that your wife, or your husband, is not a prostitute. You have to make a life with them and treat them properly, respect them and try to make them happy in accordance with the rules of God. Sex has to be a part of a whole package, a Godly lifestyle and the part that you are responsible for, if you to be in right standing with God.
People get married and stay married for many reasons. As long as you fulfill your obligations to your partner, God does not look down upon those reasons. If a woman stays with a man because she cannot afford to support herself; as long as she does not mistreat him and fulfills her obligations to him, and does everything she can to make that marriage positive, there is no condemnation.
I know three women right now who went out on their own to get their sexual needs met. One of the three women married. Her husband turned to pornography and became impotent, and that was the end of their sex life. That is one of the dangers of pornography. Once you develop a taste for it, you can only be satisfied by pornography. Now she is married to a man that she is not happy with.
All three women entered into a relationship primarily for sex, and all three men became impotent.
What has happened to this Christian nation that we live just for ourselves and for our own personal happiness? What about the extended family? Who cares about the culture or the country? The price we have paid for the right to be happy, is the destruction of the culture, our children, and the nation. This nation cannot continue the way we are going. If the Lord does not intervene, we are slated for complete destruction. We will either be conquered by another nation, or even swallowed up as if we never existed, which is what happened to Israel. My belief is that He will intervene.
You may have been told when you were in Pentecost that divorce was okay, but that was because your hearts were still hard. You had an anointing, a gift of God which was poured upon you from the outside, but your heart was not converted. Christ, the vehicle by which you can be married to God, was not born in you yet, but God had mercy on you because your emotions were in pain and your mind was filled with chaos.
Once Christ is grafted to you and you start coming closer to God your heart is supposed to soften, because Christ is your new heart. You now have the vehicle by which God can truly comfort you. The Holy Spirit is a gift; she is not the Comforter; the Spirit of Truth is the Comforter.
26But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: KJV
For years, I asked, Why would the Spirit of Truth be the Comforter? I did not understand until today that this Word that He has given to me is my whole life. It is my everything. It is the Spirit of Truth that has taught me all of these wonderful things that comforts me.
I am never demeaning the Holy Spirit, but the truth is that the Holy Spirit is female. She is the lower half of the Shekinah, the Spirit of Grace, Jesus’ Spirit in the earth. The Holy Spirit is great in her office, but she is just the beginning.
The outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon a group, where you dance and sing, comforts your emotions. There is also emotional comfort when you are alone, praying in tongues, but not as much as you receive when you are in a group. The Holy Spirit is a taste of the world to come. But this Word of doctrine goes with me wherever I am. It never leaves me. It never dries up. It is oil rather than water. In my moments of great distress, God gives me a study in my mind.
Do you want to marry Jesus? Are you waiting for some single event where He comes down and joins with you?
Marriage to Jesus is a process that develops this Word in you. At some point, it is the Word in you that joins with the Lord Jesus, and forever you will be with the Lord. But the Spirit of Truth is not joining with you if you believe that divorce is okay.
The Lord has been revealing Truth to us here, in these last days, about every error in the church, and we are anticipating the joining of Christ within us to the Lord Jesus, above. This joining is described in the Scripture as, His feet landing on the Mount of Olives.
4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. KJV
What is the Mount of Olives? It is Christ in you. The Tree of Life is an olive tree. It not an apple tree. You can eat apples without processing them, but you cannot eat raw olives; they need to be cured. The food from the Tree of Life has to be processed in you, so the marriage is an ongoing process. When the Lord exposes an error in our heart, and we receive the truth in in its place, it increases the blending of the Malkhut of the Lord Jesus Christ with the Sefirot that are growing out of Christ within us. It is a process which has been going on inside of us for years, but one day, suddenly, we will experience that unity.
Jesus told the Pharisees, Moses said that you could divorce your wives because of the hardness of your hearts. This means that you were not yet capable of marriage to the soul of Messiah, because the bride (Christ) was not in you. There was nothing for Him to join to, so you could be comforted in your natural, physical life. If you want to divorce the woman, divorce her.
But now Christ is coming to live in you, so you cannot commit those sins anymore. They will work against the development of His nature in you. They will also work against your opportunity to become a spiritual priest for God, and to end the transgression in your life which hinders our return to the immortality of innocence.
But, you say, I am unhappy. I am miserable. I am sorry you are unhappy, but you should ask God how He would have you deal with your problem. I do not mean to sound heartless, but your unhappiness is not the bottom line. Find another way to be happy. Be happy with your children. Educate yourself. Do something good in the world. Help other people. I think the divorce rate is beyond 50 percent in this country. Will a second marriage really make you happy? Even in the event it does, the spiritual reality is that you are in adultery.
1Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
2For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
You have a soul tie with your husband as long as he lives. The big question is, is this only true for the woman, or is it true for the man as well?
The requirements to be a godly woman are different than the requirements to be a godly man. This is because the culture, civilization, revolves around the woman. She is the one who bears and raises the children, and maintains the home.
3So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
4Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God. KJV
We are born with obligations to everybody around us. Every human being has an obligation to the family that he is born into. He is obligated to the woman who bears him, to the father who begets him, to the culture, etc. We are not born in a vacuum.
Women, however, are different than men. When women violate the scriptural laws the Lord has set in place for them, the culture falls into adultery, witchcraft, and sexual sin, and that is exactly what has happened in the Western world today. It started when the Women’s Liberation Movement began, around the end of World War II.
Men have committed adultery and polygamy, have had concubines, and have fallen into all kinds of sexual sin for thousands of years, and the culture does not fall apart. God does not honor that behavior, and if you are a servant of God, there will be consequences for it, but He does winks at it.
I used to tell you that I was divorced, but the Scripture was honored in that I never remarried. I wanted to remarry, but the Lord never gave me a husband. My husband did not remarry either.
Last week my husband died and this whole teaching, that divorce is not okay, has grown out of that event. I felt I had very good reasons to leave him at the time. If I had to do it over again, I would not have left him. Maybe the Lord let me leave him because my heart was still hard. I do not know.
I remember crying out to God, saying, Lord, I am so miserable here. I cannot bear it anymore. I am between a rock and a hard place. I have been sick for years, and I do not know that I can work and take care of my daughter if I were alone. Two weeks after that, I found the courage to leave him, and I always believed God gave me the strength to do it. I never remarried, so the Scripture was fulfilled in my life, If you cannot live with the man, you can leave, but you cannot remarry. Maybe it was God.
1 Cor 7:11
11But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife. KJV
Back then, I did not understand the spiritual principles we are discussing here today. I was looking for another husband, but it never happened. I had been praying for a man I liked to get saved, when the Lord told me I was praying for the wrong person. He said that I should be praying for my husband, my daughter's father. The Lord was telling me at that time, that there was no chance of another marriage for me. But I did not understand what He was saying to me.
I left my husband almost 40 years ago. It has been a long time, but the Lord showed me that I should pray for him because he is my daughter's father. He is the one who helped my daughter when she needed help, because I was in the ministry and was not able to fulfill my duties as a mother. My daughter is divorced. With two children, so God raised up her father to do what I should have been doing.
When he died last week, the Lord spoke to me very clearly. He said, Your husband is dead. You are a widow now and can marry again. I thought, what a strange thing to say to me. From now on, if anyone asks you what your marital status is, you are to say that you are a widow. In the past, instead of saying that you were divorced, you should have said that you were separated. The Lord told me that I had left for some very understandable reasons, but He never acknowledged or recognized the divorce – only the separation. I do not believe I am to be married again, but I do believe that a divorced woman could not do what I am doing for the Lord.
Another woman might have stayed married and lived with the situation, and maybe he would have gotten better. Maybe I could have helped him and he would have changed. But I left and I stayed by myself, and now I am a widow. I asked the Lord, What does this mean? There is no way God has a husband for me, or that I want one, so it must mean that I am eligible for marriage to God. I am ready for our full blending into one consciousness.
COMMENT: I have a confirmation to your message. Many years ago there was a woman named Kathryn Kuhlman, who had a valid ministry of miracles and healing. But, when she married a divorced man, the Lord said to her, You have to leave your husband if you want to continue to have miracle services. He also told her He would have used her in mighty ways if she had been obedient and not married. She did leave him.
PASTOR VITALE: He was still considering her an adulteress, even though she left him. Wow. A friend was talking to me about Kathryn Kuhlman last night.
I believe the Lord is coming within our lifetime. I think it could be very soon. Everything seems to be coming to a head. I do not see how the complete fall of America could glorify Him, although we deserve it. But we are still a nation in which He can move freely, and we can have a meeting like this. It is not over yet. They are not breaking down my door to arrest me, thank God, for holding a meeting like this. I do not see how letting us fall completely would glorify Him.
It is my opinion that the Kingdom of God is going to be built upon the ashes of the sins of this nation. The Kingdom of God is spiritual, so it has to appear in the people. The people have to live in a society, so it has to be somewhere, some place.
I think life, our existence, is practical. God has placed us on the earth and the Kingdom of God will be manifested through humanity, or through a nation, or maybe through a one-world government in God, but not at the beginning. The world has to first be reconciled unto Him.
The Lord calls the people in the church and the Jews, fortified cities, meaning, the truth cannot get into their mind. It has taken 2,000 years to bring Western culture to the point where Christ is starting to come forth in one corner of the world.
I would be shocked if we were to get our spiritual bodies right away. I believe that is a fantasy. We have to change inside first. The Lord gave me the most extensive explanation I have heard to date about why we need to change inside before our exterior changes. It is because the transgression has to be reversed first. The transgression is twofold: The fallen Woman’s adultery with the Snake and then the spiritual incest with Cain, their offspring, which brought our physical bodies into existence. These transgressions of the law must be dealt with before we receive our spiritual bodies.
The adulterous union must be broken for each individual, which is the destruction of the animal body, but when it is broken at the primordial level, this world will cease to exist. The plan is to join humanity so fully to the Lord Jesus Christ that, at the time the union between the Woman and the Snake is broken, the union with the Lord Jesus Christ will provide a new, spiritual body. That is God's plan, so there is no way we are getting spiritual bodies immediately, even when the Lord appears in power. My opinion is that we are not getting spiritual bodies for quite a while, at least 1,000 years or more. But we will be moving in power much sooner, and our lifetimes will be extended – perhaps up to 1,000 years, as it was on the other side of the Flood.
For 1,000 years the sons of God will be reconciling humanity to God through Jesus Christ. We will be teaching the Doctrine of Christ and imparting the seed of the Lord Jesus to as many members of humanity as we possibly can, to prepare them to birth Christ and marry the Lord Jesus. When the day comes that the Lord severs the tie between the Snake and the Woman, everything that exists because of that unity will cease to exist, and everything that exists because of the union between Christ and the Lord Jesus will take its place in millions of people.
We will be living in a dual world. We are living in the Kingdom of God right now, but you cannot see it. The Kingdom of God is not physical meat or drink; it is spiritual meat and drink.
17For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. KJV
We are in the Kingdom of God in our mind, but it may not have affected our external surroundings. In any case, it is definitely in our emotions. It has to swallow us up completely before it affects the external world.
The Kingdom of God may not grow rapidly because the Kingdom of God grows internally first, and is not, initially, powerful enough to expand outside of the walls of the mind of God and the material body. The appointed time arrives slowly. There is an appointed time for Christ Jesus to be revealed to Israel, which may be synchronizing with the maturity of the Church. When that happens, the Kingdom of God will be revealed in an external way.
The Scripture tells us the prophets did not understand what they were prophesying. I did an Alternate Translation in the Book of Daniel, where Daniel asked, How long until we are delivered? And the angel answered, Until the end of the adultery and the end of the transgression. I remember asking the Lord, what adultery and what transgression? I did not understand it, but I knew that the Lord told me that it was the correct Alternate Translation of that Scripture.
Dan 11:35 - AT: But, some [of those] who have spiritual intelligence shall stumble [anyway, when it comes] to making the brick [foundation that the Prince of the Covenant] fuses [with] to purify [them], until the time appointed to end [the adultery between the Woman and the Snake, and the transgression of spiritual incest between the Woman and Cain], and (ATB)
24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. KJV
Today the Lord has made it clear that the transgression is both spiritual adultery and spiritual incest. The spiritual Woman is inside of humanity, the illegitimate child that she brought into existence. Humanity is doubly cursed, but where there is faith in Jesus Christ, there is a positive influence. Things are good considering the situation we are in, but we still suffer, have problems, and die.
So, the first thing that needs to be corrected is the transgression. The transgression is the spiritual incest by which the fallen Woman and the Snake produced our exterior bodies which have an animal mind. Then she got inside of us, made us a defensed city and gave us her maniacal mind. The fallen mind is the first thing that has to go.
I believe the end of the adultery is associated with the spiritual circumcision that is coming on the eighth day. There are about 230 years left until the end of this age. At the onset of the next age, of the seventh 1,000-year day, there will be the opportunity for many believers to re-enter the immortality of innocence. For those of us here, whose bodies will not hold up another 230 years, the Lord is offering us the opportunity to extend the life of these bodies beyond the normal lifespan for this age. We are from the future. The message preached here and the mind that preaches it, is from the seventh spiritual day.
I cannot promise longevity to you and I cannot promise it to myself, but this is my hope for every one of us. This is God’s message. We change on the inside first; our mind changes first. It is that mature mind, grounded in the Doctrine of Christ, which is no longer fortified against the Lord Jesus Christ, a mind that believes the truth, which is our eligibility for longevity. Of course, only the Lord Jesus can grant it.
What is longevity and how will it be accomplished? Longevity is the man, Christ Jesus, in the midst of us, the Mediator that joins us to the Eternal One, who will preserve this flesh. Christ in you and Christ in me has to mature to the required degree of maturity that will preserve our flesh. That is what longevity is. Christ in us that is not yet fully blended with the Lord Jesus dies when our physical body dies, and Christ in us does not want to die.
About 20 years ago, I went through a period where I was crying out to God, Please, I want to live! But I was not physically dying at that time. Years later I realized it was Christ within me crying out to God saying, Mature me to the point that I can sustain the flesh of this body so I do not die! It was Christ, the spiritual fetus of the Lord Jesus Christ within me saying, I do not want to die! But if this woman dies, I will die with her. In the natural world, a fetus that is seven or eight months old will survive the death of the mother, but I do not know of any such possibility spiritually, because the fetus needs a host to dwell in.
Longevity is Christ maturing to a degree that He receives the power to sustain the flesh of His host body, until the onset of the 7th millennium. The offer to return to the immortality of innocence will be given to the church at large, but those of us here, who are prepared for the transition, will just slide over into it. It is because of the maturity of the Christ mind in us that we become eligible for longevity.
I cannot emphasize this enough. God does not respect our exterior. He is not a respecter of persons. Everything He does, every privilege He grants, is based upon the reality of our spiritual condition. Do you measure up to the degree that makes the prize yours? If you are tall enough to grab the ring, the ring is yours. If not, the ring is not yours. Do I favor you over me? No. Whoever matures to the point they can grab the ring, they are the ones who get the prize and enter into longevity.
34Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
35But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him. KJV
God has standards, and whoever reaches that standard will get the prize. It does not matter whether you are male, female, green, orange, yellow, black or purple. It is all about Christ in you and the degree to which He has matured. There are certain benefits for every degree of maturity. Everything God does has to do with His Son. It is all about Christ, and not about us.
Christ cannot mature in a chaotic culture where the exterior shell, which is female humanity, the womb that Christ is gestating in, thinks she is alive for her own pleasure. Christ survives in a culture of responsibility, respect, honor, and a clean sexual life. He cannot survive in any other atmosphere. It kills Him. Chaos produces spontaneous abortion and Christ dies.
The whole society is about Christ; it is not about us, our happiness, or our pleasure. We have to be in right standing for Him to join with us. Christ is joining with the Spirit of Truth in us, which is the Spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am convinced this union will be in our lifetime.
I preached earlier that there is no such thing as divorce. Ladies, so you think you left your husband or your husband left you, and now you are living a godly life? No. You are living in adultery, and if you want to be in right standing with God, you have to leave that man’s bed.
Men have been committing adultery for generations, and they seem to be okay with it, as unfair as that might seem to our carnal mind. But there is no divorce for the man, either. He is supposed to make it work with his wife. The one who has authority and a direct connection to God has to deal with his wife and his children. God is saying, There is no reason for you to leave your wife. You need to bring your family into right order.
If you have authority, if you are a husband, a pastor, or an employer, you are supposed to bring your house into order, because you have the authority of God to do it. It is the woman who is given permission to leave if she cannot bear living with the man who has authority over her, and then God deals with the man.
This is what I have heard from the Lord: It is not acceptable for a man to leave his wife, live with another woman and give her children. It is not acceptable, yet He winks at the man’s adultery as long as the man fulfills his obligations to his wife and children. But the man in adultery is not eligible to be a priest when the Kingdom of God appears.
God does not like it when a man leaves his responsibility and gives up. To leave your wife and go to another household is denying your manhood, your headship over your wife and the family. You are supposed to be dying to save your wife’s life, like I, as your pastor, am supposed to be doing whatever godly thing I can do to save you from destruction, which is the male role.
COMMENT: In the natural world we see men of God got involved with alcohol, even drug addiction and adultery, and still there are able to move in the anointing, because the anointing is given without repentance.
PASTOR VITALE: The issue is responsibility. You either give up, or do not give up your responsibility. The men who did the things that you name above did not abandon their congregations. There was a local preacher who had a really exciting church, bur ran away with his secretary. The Lord told me that he will never be a pastor again because he gave up his manhood. Now, he is under another man’s authority as an assistant pastor
Men and women are not the same. When you have authority over a ministry, or over a family, and you abandon them, it is the same thing as engaging in a homosexual act, because you abandon your manhood. You have become a spiritual homosexual and God will not trust you with authority again.
We have authority on all different levels. A woman is supposed to be in submission to her husband, but she has authority over her children. If somebody wants you to do something you do not want to do, you have authority over your own life to say, No, I cannot do that; that is not right. If you have authority over a family, a ministry, a business, or anything that has to do with responsibility, and you give up that responsibility, someone has already been assigned to dominate you and bring you under their control.
This spiritual principle is operating as a curse on America today, where it is very hard to make a living and be prosperous without submitting to the corporate structure, which makes you a spiritual woman. God has set it up that every man should be the head of a family and answer directly to Him, whether he is a farmer, or a small business owner, or are a shopkeeper, for example. The Lord wants the man to answer directly to Him, and He will give him a way to earn a living.
I have watched what we call mom-and-pop shops, small businesses, disappear from this country. Everything used to be a small business. There were stationary stores, candy stores and hardware stores. We used to have newspaper stands in the city, people doing all kinds of things to make a living, and believing that God would prosper them. But, the corporate structure has swallowed up the small businesses, and now everyone that works for the corporate structure is a slave to a slave master. They can fire you, reduce your salary, or do anything they want to do to you regarding your finances. There are some small businesses around, but they are very few and far between. People are afraid to go out on their own because the corporations offer either free, or reduced rate medical insurance.
Manhood has been cut off at the knees in the Western culture. It is the same old story, fair or not. If you are a woman and you want to work for the corporate structure, it is okay. But, if you are a man, you need to know you have given up your manhood, and now there is an authority over you that stands between you and God. The international corporate structure is very ungodly and is in bed with the government. It is not about money. It is about power.
QUESTION: What can the children of a second marriage hope for?
PASTOR VITALE:. There is always hope in Jesus Christ, but those children are illegitimate. One of the first things people should do when they come to Jesus Christ is break the curse of the bastard back 10 generations, because nobody knows whether or not they have an ancestor who was illegitimate. Who knows their ancestors from 10 generations ago?
Everything is correctable in Jesus. You can say the words, I break the curse of the bastard, but the way you get rid of the curses on your life is to change your lifestyle and start living for God. Start pursuing a godly lifestyle by finding out what God wants for you, and make changes in your life. The curses break as your reality changes.
The heavier the curses are on your life, the more urgent it is to give up your old life. Of course, it has to be little by little, as God takes it from you. The curses on my life were strong enough to be killing me at 11 years old, but look at what God has made of my life! Not only was I dying, but many things were wrong in my life. When I read about the curses of God in the Book of Deuteronomy I realized that, even though, to the best of my knowledge, I had not committed any of these sins, every one of the consequences for those sins, were in my life. Then I said to the Lord, I do not know where these curses came from, but I am very sorry for anything I did, and I confess the sins of my ancestors. Please, have mercy on me, and His mercy on me manifested in burning up my existing life and giving me a brand new life
You have to give up the life that produced the curse. God does not remove the curse and let you stay in the life that produced it. That is how I wound up where I am today. This is my new life. There is nothing left of my old life.
I know you are thinking about your children. There is a wound there, there is no getting away from that. Your two sons are really fine young men. They may not be fully healed for the rest of their lives though, depending on the call on their lives, because that wound is a scar. It goes away only through a whole new life in Christ. But let us say they are not called to a lifestyle of service in Christ. Then their goal should be to defend their children by marrying a godly wife and serving God to the best of their ability. Their hope should be that the wound will not transfer from them to their children, and that their children will be blessed through their parents’ commitment to Christ. The curse that resulted from the fracture that is manifested as a wounded soul, is stopped by raising the children up in Christ.
The bottom line is that everything can be corrected in Jesus Christ if you are willing to pay the price, but it is more or less difficult, depending upon how serious the curses are.
QUESTION: What happens if one spouse wants the divorces, but the other spouse does not want it? If it is against their wishes, Paul said in 1 Corinthians 7:15 that they are not under bondage. What does that mean? Does it mean they are free to remarry?
1 Cor 7:15
15But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace. KJV
PASTOR VITALE: This Scripture means that a husband or wife does not have to live with their believing spouse if they do not want to. In other words, if your spouse is an unbeliever and really wants to leave you, you should not try to make them stay. Bondage means you would be bound to that person who really does not want to be with you. What I said earlier, is that if you are in the male role, you should be dying for your wife. You should be, in every possible, godly way, humbling yourself to make that marriage work. Paul is saying here that, if the reason they do not want to stay with you is that they are offended because of your service to God, you are called to peace; let them go.
Maybe your wife wants to leave you because you are not doing everything you can to make her happy. Maybe you can be kinder to her, or maybe she wants something that you think is stupid, but that is what she needs to be content. Give it to her to keep the family together. There is a difference between situations like that and a spouse saying, I cannot bear your service to God; I simply cannot bear all of this religious stuff in the house, so I really have to go. The Lord says, in that circumstance, you should let them go because you are called to peace. The issue is that, in this instance, there is no resolution to the problem.
If your mate wants to leave you, you should do everything you can to try to give them what they need so they can be at peace with you. But if the problem is your service to God, and there is no chance there is any way that you can possibly bring peace into that marriage other than to give up serving God, in that instance, you should let them go.
QUESTION: My sister, for example, remarried, but she did not want her spouse to leave. If she finds out the truth about her situation, that she is in adultery, can she repent of it? I am just using her for an example. Can she repent while in adultery and become eligible for the priesthood, or does this just set it across the board, that she will never be able to become a priest?
PASTOR VITALE: No, she cannot be a priest while she is in adultery.
COMMENT: Yes. I was never married, but my husband was, and his ex-wife left against his will.
PASTOR VITALE: Your husband is not eligible to be a priest. I do not recommend that the woman who is married for the first time to a divorced man leave her husband unless the Lord tells her to, like in the case of Catherine Khulman. But she cannot be a priest while he is alive.
As I said earlier, although it is not fair in this world, men have been committing adultery for generations, and it does not destroy the culture. What God has against men leaving their wives is they have given up their responsibility as a man, so God has to deal with them as one who did not live up to his responsibility. But the man’s adultery is not in the same category as the woman committing adultery.
The whole issue about the adultery, is that a child comes forth, a group soul that is made up of the man, the woman, and the child. When men commit adultery, God winks at it because it does not seem to rupture the new soul that ties the three souls together. But, when the woman commits adultery, it causes a rupture in that new soul, which is actually the soul of the child, and damages the child for ten generations.
It is the woman’s adultery that damages the children because she has the egg; she carries the fetus. Even though the father is involved, she is the root of that soul. If you want to think of it in terms of an egg, she is the nucleus. When she goes to another man, and commits adultery, the spirit of the other man enters in to the group soul, which is actually the soul of the child, and fractures it. When the man commits adultery, the spirit of the woman does not enter in to him, or the group soul. That adultery does not break the spiritual egg (group soul), but it is still a sin, and God does not like it.
God prefers that the man should stay with His wife and brings her into submission in a Godly way, which is God’s first desire. But when the man leaves, he fractures the family unit, which is a material expression of that group soul, and is not eligible to be a priest since he abdicated his responsibility to the family unit.
In the event that the woman forces the divorce, and it is granted by the State, the man becomes the spiritual woman in that marital conflict, because his wife has taken authority over him and forced him into the female position in the marriage. That man, then, becomes subject to God’s instruction to the woman, You may leave your mate, but you must abide alone. You cannot remarry. The woman, on the other hand, becomes the spiritual man in the marital conflict, and is subject to God’s disapproval for not meeting her responsibility to keep the family together.
In your personal situation, where this is your first marriage, but your husband is a spiritual woman because his wife divorced him, my understanding right now is that the Lord would not require your husband to leave his present wife, which is you, because you are married in the eyes of the State. However, you cannot be a priest as long as your husband lives because you are joined to an adulterer.
3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man. KJV
Jacob married two women, and the servants of the two women, and all the children they bore were legitimate in the Old Testament. Even the concubines, which were actually slaves, were considered legitimate, although second in social position to the wives, because they were sanctified by the family they served. So even though the man was polygamous, his wives, concubines and children were all legitimate.
In the Book of Ezra, however, the Judean men were married to Babylonian women, unsanctified women of the land, and these marriages were not acceptable to God.
Today, the question is, is the divorced man married to a Christian woman or a pagan woman? The Lord says the Godly wife sanctifies her husband. If the man is divorced but the woman was never married before, it does not make the woman an adulteress because God winks at it when a man has more than one wife, even though it is not acceptable to Him in the New Testament. Secondarily, the New Testament says that the woman sanctifies her husband. If a husband and wife are living together in a Godly union, there is no need for a separation, but neither of them can be an elder, deacon or a priest.
QUESTION: If I would have left my husband and remarried, would there have been a more powerful curse on my family line? You were talking about the egg and also the relationship of my children, that it could have been much worse than it is.
PASTOR VITALE: There is a difference between committing adultery and abandoning your family. A woman’s adultery has a more destructive effect on the children and the whole family, than a man’s adultery, but divorce, whether it is the man or the woman who leaves, fractures the family soul, which is the spiritual child of the marriage.
QUESTION: You have taught, if the physical body of the person who is carrying the fetus of Christ dies, Christ dies too. You also said Christ is having experiences through multiple incarnations. If He is having experiences through multiple incarnations, are these experiences alive and do they go on from each incarnation?
PASTOR VITALE: Yes, but they are not individual people. They can be likened to the experiences that we have growing up and maturing after we are grown. All of our experiences, and all the people we have been over the years, at different times of our lives, are always appearing as the one person that we are, at every stage of our development.
QUESTION: So, what part of Christ is dying if His experiences are still alive and going to the next incarnation?
PASTOR VITALE: The person having the multiple incarnations is the First Adam who died in the previous age, but was resurrected as the Second Adam in Jesus of Nazareth. Today, since Jesus was glorified and became the last Adam, it is the spiritual seeds of the glorified Jesus Christ having all of these experiences through many people, who are female wombs. Every time someone who is pregnant with a seed of the Lord Jesus Christ dies, where Jesus’ spiritual male seed is not fully born (Christ has not yet been fully born yet in anyone except for Jesus), that manifestation of Christ, which is one of the glorified Jesus’ experiences, dies also.
The Lord Jesus Christ is attached to His seed in the individual, so every experience Christ is having through a human person, the Lord Jesus Christ is having also. The Lord Jesus Christ is the same person as Christ in you because Christ is not divided. I have asked the Lord, Who do I pray to? Do I pray to Christ in me? Do I pray to the Lord Jesus up there? How do I pray? And His answer to me is, there is no separation. Christ is a spiritual entity; He is not a single point; He is not a single man. The Lord Jesus Christ is a spiritual entity, and He is omniscient. He is everywhere at once.
The experience Christ is having in you, the whole Lord Jesus is having, not just His spiritual male seed. When the seed does not come to full maturity because the person dies, the Lord Jesus still had those experiences, even though His seed died.
Yes. It is like, God forbid, you lose a finger, or you lose a hand. The whole body still exists.
QUESTION: Are you saying there is a different standard for the laity and the priesthood?
PASTOR VITALE: Yes, according to the Book of Leviticus, that is the case, but according to Jesus and Paul, they were talking to the Church in general. Jesus and Paul were saying, if you are operating in the New Testament, which would be the Jew or Christian; if you are of the Israel of God, you are called to the priesthood.
The Scripture says we are all kings and priests, so both Jesus and Paul were talking to the body as if they were priests, because everyone has the potential to become a priest, but that does not mean everyone in the body of Christ is will actually attain to being a priest, or is moving in that office at any given time. The distinction between the office of the priest and the laity is determined by the anointing.
Whoever ministers by the indwelling Christ (not the gifts of the Holy Spirit), is a priest. Jesus’ condemnation of the Nicolaitans, was directed at self-appointed priests lauding it over the people. There is a legitimate distinction between the five-fold ministry and the Church Elders who are moved by the Spirit of God, and the people that they teach,
COMMENT: Ezra specifically spoke about strange wives, too.
PASTOR VITALE: Strange meaning foreign; meaning not Israelites.
The Scripture teaches that the creation is cursed, and that physical men and physical women are not equal. We have just established that the whole society falls apart, and goes into witchcraft and sexual sin when women go out from under the authority of the Scripture. Women need to be in submission to a Godly authority. Of course, abuse is never acceptable to God.
This is the spiritual principle: If you do not want to be married, or if your father turns out to be a cruel man, you can submit to God. My authority is God; I do not have a physical man over me. I am directly under God. A woman can be anything that she wants to be. Do you want to be a doctor, a lawyer, an Indian chief, a head of state? You should pursue your dream, but you have to be under a Godly authority.
A woman can be directly under God, that is, no husband or father over her, but in that event, she must remain celibate.
A man can be directly under God, no father, Elder or employer over him, and still have a wife and family.
Not fair, you shout, and so it is in this fallen world.
What is interesting is the teaching in the Church, which I think is a false teaching, that every pastor has to be in submission to another pastor. People used to ask me, who is the pastor over your church? And I would say, God ordained me. They did not really accept that, but the truth is, in my case, God really did ordain me. It has become a religious structure in the church that you have to be ordained by another minister, or you are not legitimate, because God can raise up whoever He wants.
I am not your typical pastor. I am an apostle, who is bringing forth doctrine directly from God. If God raises you up, you do not need a pastor over you. Your cover is God directly, but maybe God does want a pastor over your church. It depends on the spiritual maturity of the pastor, because the pastors today are not really pastors. To be a pastor means The Pastor dwells in you, which makes you a shepherd of the people. It means you are directly connected to God through Christ (not the Holy Spirit).
When God reveals an apostle, all of the churches are supposed to come under the headship of the apostle and learn what God is teaching through him.
The Church is female. We have already established that when women come out from under the Godly paradigm, the culture eventually goes into witchcraft and sexual sin. Included in witchcraft is the sacrifice of the babies, and we have out of control abortion right here in this country. Eventually, the judgment of God falls, and the whole culture goes into destruction.
The bottom line is that women and men are not equal. However, Paul teaches us that there is now no male or female in Christ Jesus. This means that for the purposes of spiritual ministry, the Spirit of God can overshadow whoever He wants to speak and minister through. But this anointing does not raise the woman above the man in the home and family.
The Church is female. Twenty years ago, there was a revival, and the Church came under the authority of the Shekinah. But now the Shekinah is gone in most instances, and the Church is uncovered. The pastors are praying for another revival of the Holy Spirit, because they do not understand that Christ Jesus, the spiritual man is already here with an anointing to teach them wisdom. This lack of awareness means that the female Church is in rebellion, out of order, and will be uncovered until such time as she recognizes her husband in the new way that He is relating to her, through the ministry of the Son of Man, which is replacing the five-fold ministry of Pentecost.
