It is important that we know God's ordinances and His statutes and His judgments. It is important that we know what He requires of us. It is important that we know and understand what he expects of us because if we do not understand it, we leave doors wide open. We leave big holes in our hedges for disaster to come upon us. I remind you that when Israel sinned, Israel was judged. I am not talking about the Israel in the days of the kings, but the Israel that crossed the Jordan, that was an undefeated nation; no one was even wounded, no one was sick. I remind you that God told the children of Israel not to take any of the spoil from the enemy, and when Achan took it and buried it in his tent, the whole nation was judged.
This whole nation is under judgment. The whole church is under judgment, and I believe that some ministries are under judgment because of the unconfessed sins of the leadership. That is not how it is supposed to be. We are supposed to be undefeatable. The only guidelines that I can give you if you want to get to this place in your life is to come before the Lord on a daily basis, if not more often. Ask him to show you every sin, every error in your reasoning, every error in the way you lead your life, every error in the way you relate to other people, and repent.
You see, the Hebrews had it easy. They had priests that told them the law, and they had to keep in line or they were stoned. The priests in the pulpit today do not even understand the things themselves. That is why the church is a disaster. We have to get the mind of God and this is much harder than the Levitical law. The Levitical law was real easy. You just brought your pigeons, and your cows, and your goats to the priest for sacrifice, and you kept the Ten Commandments, and then there were a smattering of other laws as to how you related to your neighbor.
If you had a bull that harmed your neighbor's property or your neighbor's bull, you were told what you had to do. There are all kinds of laws. Do you know that there are laws like that? That is in the Levitical law; what to do if your animal hurts your neighbor's property, what you have to do if your animal hurts your neighbor's wife, what you have to do if he hurts your neighbor's wife and she was pregnant. Do you know that, that is all in the Levitical law? The problem with the church today and the reason we are in trouble is the law is not written down, and the people do not even believe it when they hear it.
They do not believe what God requires of them. They just do not believe it, and there is all kind of destruction on their life. God is a God of judgment; that is the message for tonight. It is an unpopular message in the church. They do not want to believe it, but they are going to believe it when that cinder block of God's judgment falls on their head. They are going to believe it. God is a God of law and judgment. Ignorance of the law does not exempt you from the consequences of breaking it. Your only hope is repentance and to receive the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ, and you just keep doing this. You have to find out His laws.
You have to get an understanding of what he expects of you in your relationship with your fellow believer. You have to find out what he expects of you in your relationship with unbelievers, with your parents, and with your children. You should know how he expects a mother to relate to her children. You have to find out what he expects of you in your business dealings. Do you know that there are laws in the Levitical law that says if you cheat somebody, under certain circumstances you have to restore them fourfold? Under certain other circumstances, you have to restore them fivefold? There are specific things that you have to do to prevent the judgment from falling on you.
Nobody in the church knows about these things, only a very few. I mean, no one that I know of knows about these things. They think they can do anything that they want. When the judgments fall they tell you it is a demon. "It is a demon, God sent it." Well, I did not really mean to go in this track tonight, but there is a spirit of judgment here. The Lord has declared that the world shall see Him, and they shall know Him; He is a God of righteousness.
I declare to you that the true message is not being preached today. We have preachers preaching deliverance, but with a false doctrine, saying that you take no responsibility for what happened to you. They say that you have no responsibility for the condition that you are in, just cast the demon out. "God is not dealing with you, just cast the demon out." Then we have the preachers that preach hell fire and damnation that scare the people half to death. Then we have the Kingdom preachers that are preaching only the good things of the Bible. I do not hear any call for repentance. It is a beautiful message, "Christ shall appear in you."
I do not hear any call for repentance, and I do not hear one word about the procedure and the pain that you are going to have to go through as Christ appears in you. They are not preparing the people for the labor. They are telling them about the glory of the child after He is born, but they are not preparing the people for the labor, and the people are just not prepared. Judgment is falling left and right across the world in the church, and everyone is blaming Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. Well, this cannot continue, brethren. It cannot continue.
The true Gospel of the Kingdom is appearing in the earth in this hour, and I do not know how God is going to prosper it. I know it is being preached here. I do not know where else it is being preached, but it has to go out to the church and then to the world. God is a God of love, He is a God of righteousness, He is a God of judgment. He intends to appear in the living soul that died, but not without judgment of that living soul that died. Why? Because the living soul that died is evil in its state of being, and we have been practicing and living evil for so many years, for so many generations, that it is a part of our mind.
It is a part of our mind, and a righteous God is going to impress His way of thinking upon our mind and His way must prevail; His way must prevail. We cannot continue to think in thoughts of rebellion, and in thoughts of pride, and in thoughts of error, and we cannot continue to relate to our fellow man in a manner that is unacceptable to God. The message that I have for you tonight is Isaiah, a preacher of the Gospel of the Kingdom.
God has shown me that the prophet Isaiah preached the Gospel of the Kingdom. I went through from Chapter 1 to Chapter 33, and I just pulled out one to four verses in each chapter which emphasized that this is the Gospel of the Kingdom that is being preached. What I am trying to say to you is that, in this hour, God is bringing forth the true Gospel of the Kingdom again. I declare to you that the Kingdom message that is being preached in the church today is not the true Gospel of the Kingdom, because the true Gospel of the Kingdom includes judgment.
You cannot leave the judgment out, it includes repentance, and this is not being preached. This is what I am going to do. I am going to go through the first 33 chapters of Isaiah if I have time (I might stop sooner), just picking out a few verses showing you that Isaiah preached the Gospel of the Kingdom. I got very excited when God showed me this. Let us get going because I am rambling tonight.
From Chapter 1 in the Book of Isaiah, I picked out Verse 3, Israel does not know her God. That is an indictment. Verse 11, He wants a personal relationship with her. Verse 20, judgment for disobedience, and Verse 21, redemption. This is all in Chapter 1. I am just going to comment on these verses.
Verse 3 of Chapter 1, "The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider." Brethren, the church today does not know her God. She does not know her God, and she is under judgment. All kinds of things are happening. The Scripture tells us that the Hebrew children in captivity in Egypt dropped healthy babies. There is nothing in the Scripture about stillborn births, there is nothing about cesarean sections, and there is nothing about birth defects. Brethren, the church is under judgment.
Verse 11, "To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me, saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullock, or of lambs, or of he goats." God does not want your religious works, brethren. He wants a personal relationship with you. He does not want your sacrifices, He does not even want your fasting, not necessarily. If I am shocking you, I am sorry. He does not care whether you fast or not. He wants a personal relationship with you whereby you obey Him, not whereby you go before Him and tell him everything that you want and need and get mad when you do not get it.
He wants a personal relationship with you whereby He is the husband, you are the wife, and you are in submission to Him. He does not want your religious works. If you want to go to church three, four nights a week that is wonderful, but do not think you are right with God because you are sitting in a church seat three, four nights a week. He wants you to talk to Him, and He wants you to listen when He talks to you.
I am sorry, brethren, but by and large in the church today, people are only concerned about what they want. I just heard it tonight, "I am praying to the Lord to send me to this kind of church." Well, what about what God wants you to do? You are fasting, you are going to church when you do not want to go, you are making a sacrifice; maybe that is not what God wants from you. Maybe He wants a different kind of sacrifice from you. You better find out, because if you are giving Him a sacrifice out of your own heart, He is not receiving it. He wants you to do what He wants you to do.
He wants you to go to the church that He wants you to go to. If He puts you in a church where you can cast out demons, that is wonderful, but if He calls you out, He wants you to go where He sends you. He does not care that you are not eating dinner tonight. Maybe the fast that He is putting you on is six months of not casting out demons which gives you glory in your own eyes, which puffs up your pride and tells you what a wonderful Christian you are. Maybe He wants you to fast from satisfying your pride. Did that ever occur to you? Glory to God.
Verse 20, Chapter 1, "But if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword." Well, let me go back to Verse 19, "If you be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land." You have to be willing to do what God tells you and to obey Him, "but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it." God is a God of judgment, He wants you to do what He tells you to do. Glory to God, this is a shock to a lot of people. That is the judgment for disobedience. Then as He brings you into obedience, as He delivers you from the sword (and the sword is the demons that you get when you disobey), the end of the whole process is redemption.
Verse 21, "How the faithful city has become a harlot. It was full of judgment, righteousness lodged in it, but now murderers." Well, I guess I picked a wrong verse. You will have to forgive me for that. We will just go on, but I am going to tell you that the Gospel of the Kingdom includes all these elements. God requires you to know Him, and He wants a personal relationship with you. If you are disobedient, He shall judge you, and He shall bring forth righteousness and redemption in you. It is the Gospel of the Kingdom. You must repent of your sins and submit to the judgment that will impart God's thinking to you. I do not hear this being preached anywhere except here.
Chapter 2, we are going to do Verses 2 and 11. We start with Verse 2. "And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the Lord's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it." Isaiah is preaching about God living in man. "And it shall come to pass in the last days," that is now, "that the mountain of the Lord's house," that is the soul of Christ, "shall be established in the top of the mountains," the mountains of the nations, and the top is your mind. The soul of Christ is going to be established in the mind of fallen Adam and shall be exalted above the hills, and all nations shall flow unto it.
The soul of Christ shall appear in men's minds and shall be exalted. After you get to know your God, after you form a personal relationship with Him, after you are brought into obedience through judgment, God shall appear in you. All you preachers preaching that God is going to appear in all these people without preparing them for the difficulty of the labor, you are selling them short! You are doing them an injustice! You are preaching half a message.
Chapter 2, Verse 11, "The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day." That is the Gospel of the Kingdom. The Lord shall be exalted. How? By putting down the pride of man. By putting down the pride of man, the haughtiness and the pride of men shall be trodden under the foot of the Lord Jesus Christ and He shall be exalted. Brethren, you cannot manifest pride towards God, He will not tolerate it. If you cannot control it, ask Him to help you. Ask Him to help you. You have to repent.
Chapter 3, Gospel of the Kingdom in the Book of Isaiah, Verses 5 and 12. Verse 5. "And the people shall be oppressed." This is the prophecy of the condition that is happening right now, today. "And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honorable." The base are those that do not have the Spirit of God. That is the natural man, and they are going to be behaving themselves proudly against those that have the Spirit of Christ.
Do you think this is not happening in the church, brethren? If you do, you are mistaken. The church is filled with people that cannot control their children. The children are rebellious, the people are not obeying the Scriptural laws of discipline, and the children are killing their parents. Why? Because if your children manifest rebellion and it is not dealt with, they are guilty of murder of their parents. You must discipline your children, brethren. Paddle them with a stick on their behinds until they are blue, if necessary, when pride and rebellion manifest in them. Glory to God.
This is in the church, brethren. "And the people shall be oppressed..." Did you ever come into a service, and say, "Oh, I am so oppressed, I am so depressed." You are not supposed to be oppressed and depressed. If you are, it is because there is sin in your mind. Christ is not ruling and reigning in your mind, and He has not trodden the fallen adamic soul underfoot. If He had, you could not be oppressed. The warfare has not been accomplished in you. Christ is on top one minute and underneath the next minute. What does that mean? It means there is need for judgment in your life.
Not judgment to burn in hell forever, but judgment that can be likened to the paddling of your children. You must change your mind. You must change your mind, and I am going to tell you from personal experience, if you are oppressed because someone has offended you, or hurt you, or betrayed you, or disappointed you, I am going to tell you something - if you truly have forgiven those people you would not be oppressed. I am going through this right now, I am talking about me. If you truly forgave them for what they did to you, if you are not manifesting pride, if you are not saying, "How dare they," you would not be oppressed. You are oppressed because someone got the best of you, and/or because you cannot forgive them, your mind is killing you. You have to change. You have to change! Glory to God.
We are in Chapter 3, Verse 12. "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths." Brethren, this is not just in this country, it is in the church. "As for my people," that is the church, "children are their oppressors." I see it all the time. We had a family in this church where the children ran the parents. The children were utterly undisciplined. The parents just could not deal with them, little children, a two-year old child and a five-year old. They could not keep them.
"And women rule over them." Well, that could be taken on two levels. There are families today where the women rule the men. It is very ungodly, brethren, but it also could mean that if you are a man that your soul realm is ruling you. We have tapes on this, I cannot take the time here. If the woman is actively manifesting Christ, both the husband and the wife are supposed to be under Christ. If the woman is a carnal Christian, she is under her husband and pray God that he hears from the Lord. You men, if you have a carnal woman, it is easy. If you marry a Son of God, it is hard. It is hard because the lines are not drawn, but you can do all things in Christ, Amen?
"And women rule over them, oh my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err." Brethren, the ministers in the pulpit are leading the people right over the cliff. They are leading them right over the cliff. They are teaching them wrong things. They are not ministering judgment to them. They are not doing it, and they are certainly not preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. Either they are condemning them with the judgment and not giving them the vision of the truth of Christ, they are preaching the rapture, or they are preaching the Kingdom and they will not execute the judgment.
We are crippled, brethren, but not for long. Hallelujah, we are still in Chapter 3. I want to do Verses 16 to 26. I am going to run through that quickly. I want to give you some of the positive aspects. I just want to make a comment here. It just seems as I went through these chapters in Isaiah that there really is just as much of the promise of the Kingdom as there is of judgment, but for some reason when you read it, the judgment stands out more than the promise. I think what God is saying to me is that because we are natural men, the Scripture says we are going to be afraid of God when He manifests in a Spirit of righteousness.
Because we are still so human, our own humanity is afraid of the judgments that we read about in these Scriptures; the judgments stand out more and overshadow the promise, simply because of our state of being. There is so much of the Kingdom in here; there are many Scriptures promising the glory, but Isaiah is called the "Prophet of Doom" because, to us, the judgments stand out more.
We are in Chapter 3, Verses 16 to 26. "Moreover, the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty," that is the church, brethren, "and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes," well, this is not a positive one, this is still the judgment, I am sorry, we are still talking about the judgment here, "and they walk with stretched forth necks," pride, " and wanton eyes," lust, not only sexual lust. God does not want sexual lust, but the church cannot get past sexual lust. There is lust for all kinds of things, brethren. Lust for the things of this world, lust for prestige, lust for position, and lust for possessions. It goes way beyond sexual lust, brethren, so do not point your finger at the one that is fornicating and think you are okay, because you are probably not.
"With stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet." Trying to attract attention. "Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crownlets of the head of the daughters of Zion," that is the church, "and the Lord will discover their secret parts." Now, the secret parts are their reproductive organs. I suggest to you, if you fit into this category and you are proud, when God smites you, the result of it is that He is going to discover your secret parts. Well, what is He going to do with you when He exposes your reproductive parts? He intends to copulate with you and bring forth Christ in you so that you have power over this pride. Glory to God, glory to God, hallelujah!
Verse 18, "In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls and their round tires like the moon," I am not going to get into that, he is going to take away "the chains and the bracelets and the mufflers, the bonnets and the ornaments of the legs and the headbands, and the tablets, and the ear-rings, the rings, and nose jewels," he is going to take away "the changeable suits of apparel and the mantels...."
I am just going to skip down to Verse 24, "And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle, a rent, and instead of well-set hair, baldness; and instead of a stomacher, a girding of sackcloth," He is going to humble them, brethren "and burning instead of beauty." He is going to take away all of the beauty that they receive from their own man-made ways, their clothes and their own glory, but He is going to give them the beauty of Christ.
Verse 25, "Thy men shall fall by the sword, and thy mighty in the war." The war with who? The war between the natural man and Christ. He is going to defeat you. Verse 26, "And her gates shall lament and mourn; and she being desolate shall sit upon the ground." The church that had enjoyed the glory of the Spirit of God is going to be laid low. The Lord is going to strip her of everything that she has applied to herself to make herself beautiful, and she is going to become a natural man. God is going to bring her down to the ground. Glory to God. That is the judgment that is coming upon the church that would not repent and work out their own salvation.
Chapter 4, Verses 2, 4 and 6 talk about the purification of the church and the Lordship of Christ in the earth. This is a well balanced ministry of the Gospel of the Kingdom. Verse 2, "In that day shall the branch of the Lord" that is Jesus, "be beautiful and glorious," hallelujah, "and the fruit of the earth," Glory to God, that is Him in you and me, "shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel." What do you mean escaped of Israel? Brethren, those that escape the judgment, those that escape the judgment. This thing is real, and it is hard and it is harsh, and not everyone is going to make it. Some people might even die, I do not know how severe this is going to get. Well, you know, if the judgment is infirmity and you do not get healed, you die, do you not?
Pastor Vitale, how can you preach that all men will be saved and then say something terrible like that? I am not going to get too deeply into it on this tape. It is on Tape 21 if you want to study it. Brethren, God is saving the living soul that died, the spiritual entity known as the living soul. That does not include every leaf on that tree in this hour. He is saving the tree trunk, He is saving the roots that go deep down into the earth, but the leaves that appear on the tree, the people that appear for a season, every one of them is not going to be saved. The tree is going to be saved. Glory to God.
Chapter 4, Verse 4, "When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion," deliverance, brethren, "and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem," now check this out, it is a two-prong process. He is going to wash away the filth. That is, as we have taught it in this ministry, the separation of your mind into two camps, of the thoughts of God and the thoughts of fallen Adam. Throughout the church world, we see people who have a mixture in their mind of Christ and fallen Adam. They cannot separate the thoughts of Christ from fallen Adam.
There is no deliverance for them because the fallen adamic soul and the soul of Christ is so joined together that the evil spirit cannot be cast out. Preparation for the casting out of evil spirits is the separation in your mind of what is right and what is wrong. If your mind is all confused about what is right and what is wrong, there is no casting a demon out of you. The first step is that you have to get washed.
I believe we are in Verse 4 of Chapter 4. "When the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem," after you are washed, brethren, after your thoughts are separated into two camps, then you are purged. Then the demons are purged out "from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning." Brethren, if you cannot separate your thoughts in your own mind, a spirit of judgment and a spirit of burning is upon you, the end of which, Lord willing, is that your thoughts shall separate into two camps and the demons shall come out.
As I understand these Scriptures, brethren, there are going to be some members of the church that are not going to make it. Glory to God.
Verse 6, "And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain." That is Jesus, glory to God! "And there shall be a tabernacle," where? In your mind, the soul of Christ, "for a shadow in the daytime from the heat," from the Spirit of God, that it does not burn you up and consume you, "and for a place of refuge," from what? From the fallen adamic soul and from the judgments of God until you are completely purified. " And for a covert," well, let me go back over that.
"There shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the daytime" that is Christ, "from the heat" of the fire of God "and for a place of refuge" from the judgment of God, "and for a covert from storm and from rain." This is probably Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, although I am not too sure, I did not go into this word by word. It could be either the Satanic mind, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, or the judgment of God. We are not teaching tonight, we are just preaching. Glory to God, we are talking about a well-balanced Gospel of the Kingdom. This includes a knowledge of God as He really is, not as you would like Him to be, a personal relationship with Him, the reality that God will judge sin in your mind, and then the promise of the Glory of His presence. A four-pronged Gospel, brethren.
Chapter 5 of the Book of Isaiah, Verses 13 and 15. Verse 13, "Therefore my people are gone into captivity," my people, the church, are gone into captivity, "because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished." The Christ in them is famished. Why? They are not hearing the Gospel of the Kingdom. There is only one thing that is going to feed the Christ that is birthed in you, brethren, and that is the Gospel of the Kingdom. He is not goingto grow up on this false doctrine that is being preached in the church. Once He is birthed in you, He needs to be fed the Gospel of the Kingdom.
"Therefore my people are gone into captivity," Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, is ruling, though you have the Holy Spirit, "because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished." Christ in you is starving, and we have a woman in this ministry that when she first came here she used to have dreams all the time of a very skinny, straggly baby that she had. My interpretation of that dream is that she had birthed Christ, and it was starving to death. God helped her to study the Gospel of the Kingdom. Glory to God.
"And their multitude dried up with thirst." This refers to the lack of the Spirit of God. You cannot get blessed by God when you are going one way and He wants you to go the other way. Brethren, there is nothing left for Him to do but judge you. Verse 15 of Chapter 5, "And the mean man shall be brought down," a mean man in the body of Christ? You better believe it, brethren, "and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty" or the proud "shall be humbled." God will not tolerate pride in His people. He is going to judge sin in your behavior and sin in your mind. Glory to God.
I see I left a couple of verses out, I am sorry. I wanted to do 13 through 15, so let us do 14. "Therefore hell hath enlarged herself." This is Isaiah preaching that hell is in the mind. Let me back up to Verse 13, "Therefore my people," this is the true definition of what hell is right from the prophet Isaiah, "therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men," Christ in them "is famished and their multitude is dried up with thirst. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself." Well, what does that mean?
In their minds they have gone into captivity. They have no knowledge of God and Christ is famishing. The result of this is that "hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure: and their glory," whose glory? The glory of the church, "and their multitude and their numbers and their pomp and their pride, and he that rejoiceth, shall all descend into it." There is not one word about dying before you go to hell, brethren. Isaiah knew that hell is a condition of the mind. It is a spiritual condition. It is your relationship to Christ. Hallelujah.
Verse 15, "And the mean man shall be brought down," where? To hell, "and the mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled." Where? In hell. They are not living out of Christ. They are living out of the fallen adamic soul. It is right here in the Book of Isaiah, the true preacher of the Gospel of the Kingdom.
Going on to Chapter 6, Verses 8 through 10 tell us about the manifestation of the Sons of God and prophesy the long period of time before Christ appears. We are waiting and waiting and waiting. Verses 8 to 10, Chapter 6, "Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send and who will go for us? Then, said I, Here am I; send me." God appearing in men. Glory to God. Verse 9, "And He said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not." God is sending preachers, but He is saying it is just not time for you to understand.
Verse 10, "Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed." Brethren, these people cannot hear God until He takes the veil off of their eyes. This teaching is a part of the Gospel of the Kingdom too. We see Christians everywhere out there beating people over the heads with the Bible. They do not understand what this Bible says. They do not understand the Lord, they do not even know Him. I would go so far as to say that many of them do not even have a relationship with Him.
Do you know that because you have the Holy Spirit that does not mean you have a relationship with him? He can be resident in you, you can speak in tongues but does that mean you have a relationship with him? Do you know that it is possible to live in the same house with somebody and have no relationship? Take rooming houses, you could have fifteen people living in the same house, everybody goes into their own room, nobody knows anybody. Just because you have the Holy Spirit, it does not mean that you have a relationship with the Lord.
There is going to be a long period of time between when the Sons of God start preaching and when Christ appears, and that happens in Verse 13, "But yet it shall be a tenth, and it shall return," and that means that after God rains down judgment and burns up all of the wickedness in your soul there is going be a tenth left, the tithe of God. We just talked about this at the last meeting. That which was of God from the beginning in the natural man, "And it shall return," to whom? To God, "and it shall be eaten," by whom? By Jesus Christ as the Scripture says, "If you are neither hot nor cold I am going to spit you out of my mouth."
Jesus Christ wants to eat you, He wants to consume you, He wants to join with you, He wants to become one with you... where? In your human spirit, in that place, in that area of your heart that was given to you right out of the heart of God from the beginning of time, "as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof." If Christ is in you, you shall survive the judgment, brethren. I declare unto you, take heart, you shall survive the judgment if you have Christ in you. Glory to God.
Chapter 7, Verses 14 and 15 prophesy the coming of Messiah. In this dispensation, in the year 1989, Messiah is coming for the second time in the form of the Sons of God. Chapter 7, Verses 14 and 15, "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign: Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son and shall call his name Immanuel." I know I preached this before, does anyone remember who the virgin is in this hour... anybody? Glory to God. It is the human spirit purified. She is a harlot, but she is going to be a virgin again because God is going to make her clean. God is going to make her clean.
Do you know that man counterfeits everything. I mean, this is really a barbarous practice, I do not know why I am even saying this, but in the Middle East (I do not know whether they used to do it in Europe or not), but, in the Middle East there are people that earn their living by performing operations on women to make them virgins again. It is a fact. They perform operations on women to make them virgins again (chuckle). Just a counterfeit. God shall make our human spirit a virgin again. She was a harlot, and we know that once we are polluted spiritually, there is no way to become a virgin again except by the supernatural power of Almighty God. The virgin that is going to conceive, brethren, is the church of Almighty God and she is going to conceive the Christ child. "Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son," Christ, "and shall call his name Immanuel." God within you, for the life of the ages.
Verse 15, "Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good." Butter and honey, honey typifying wisdom. The Lord told me what butter meant just the other day, and it is just slipping my mind. "Butter and honey shall He eat, wisdom and the oil of the spirit. "Butter," the oil of the spirit, "shall He eat that He may know how to refuse the evil and choose the good." He is birthed in you, brethren, and He has to grow up in you. He needs the ministry of the Spirit, and He needs the wisdom that comes through the Gospel of the Kingdom to bring Him to full stature in you. It is not enough to get the Holy Spirit, and it is not enough to birth Christ. He has to appear in you. You have to make yourself available to the ministry that is going to cause Him to grow. Glory to God.
Chapter 8, Verse 18 prophesies the Messiah and the Sons of God. It says, "Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of Hosts, which dwelleth in Mount Zion." Glory to God. "I," Jesus Christ, "and the children whom the Lord hath given me," the Sons of God in whom the Spirit of Jesus Christ shall rule and reign "are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of Hosts which dwelleth in Mount Zion." Mount Zion, the minds of men that dwell in Christ, that is, the mind of Christ. Hallelujah! A full, well-rounded Gospel of the Kingdom. Isaiah was a preacher of righteousness, not a preacher of doom! He preached the whole thing, brethren. He preached the whole package.
Chapter 9, Verses 2 and 4 prophesies deliverance for the fallen adamic man. Chapter 9, Verse 2, "The people that walked in darkness," these are you and me, "have seen a great light." That is Christ coming forth in you and me. You cannot see Him, brethren, unless He is within you. "They that dwell in the land of the shadow of death," that is right here, brethren, that is right here. We died when we entered into this realm of death, "upon them hath the light shined." Glory to God. He is shining in our minds. Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus!
Verse 4, "For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor," even Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, "as in the day of Midian." The Lord Jesus Christ shall appear in us and he shall break the yoke of the oppressor, the Satanic, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, that has ruled us for all of these thousands of years. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Verses 6 and 7 prophesy Messiah. Chapter 9, Verse 6, "For unto us a child is born," where? In our hearts, "unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder," what government, brethren? The government of God, the government of God is His law, brethren, and once He is birthed in you He wants to rule, and He is going to cast down every other law in your heart that opposes Him. Warfare. He is birthed in you and a warfare ensues. Preachers, you have got to preach the warfare! You are selling the people short!
"And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." He is going to dwell within us, but, brethren, He is not going to dwell within us without punishing the natural man. It is just not going to happen. There is a war that is going to come after He is conceived in you, there is a labor that is going to bring Him forth into full stature, and it is not going to be easy, I am not going to lie to you. It is hard, and it is painful, and not everybody is going to make it. Yes, I believe that all men shall be saved. I cannot take more time on this tape to explain this. Get tape 21. If it sounds like a contradiction to you, ask God to elevate your thinking, brethren. Carnal minds have problems dealing with the promises and the ways of God. Hallelujah!
We are still in Chapter 9. I have something else here for you. Chapter 9, Verses 18 and 19 prophesy judgment. It is not in the right order. We had Verses 2 and 4 talking about deliverance for fallen Adam, Verses 6 and 7 prophesying the coming of Messiah and Verses 18 and 19 prophesying the judgment. Well, of course, the judgment comes after Messiah appears in you, so maybe it is in the right order.
Verse 18, "For wickedness burneth as the fire," wickedness, that is fallen Adam. He is in your mind, and he is in my mind, and he is going to burn like the fire, brethren. "It shall devour the briars and the thorns," that is the demons in your brain, "and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke," our spirit is going to be released and ascend into the heavens like smoke, brethren. Verse 19, "Through the wrath of the Lord of Hosts is the land darkened." Brethren, this is hard. Do you know when I first read in the Book of Revelation, "There is going to be no more tears," I said, "What do you mean, no more tears, what tears?"
Then I started to cry. I have been crying for over 10 years. I cry a lot, brethren. This is hard. This is hard. "Through the wrath of the Lord of Hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire," that is us burning, brethren, in the fire of Almighty God, "no man shall spare his brother." Judgment is coming on everything that is of the fallen adamic man. Christ must rule and reign, and fallen Adam must be put underfoot and all wickedness destroyed.
Chapter 10, Verse 15 is a rebuke against the pride of man. It says, "Shall the axe boast itself against him that heweth therewith? Or shall the saw magnify itself against him that shaketh it?" Brethren, we are here for the pleasure of the Lord. I have heard the most perverse comments about what that means. We are here for God's pleasure. God's pleasure, brethren, is that He should appear in us. It is that He should manifest through our minds, our thoughts, our words, our deeds, and our very behavior. That is the pleasure of the Lord.
We are the implement or the instrument of God and this Scripture says, "Shall the axe," we are the axe, "boast itself against Him that heweth therewith?" Do we think that we are better than God? A lot of Christians do, brethren. "Or shall the saw magnify itself against Him that shaketh it? As if the rod should shake itself against them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself, as if it were no wood." The instrument is raising up its head against Almighty God and saying, "I know better." God is going to put all of that rebellion and pride down.
Verses 24 and 25 of Chapter 10 are comforting Scriptures telling the people that God is with them. Verse 24. "Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Hosts, O my people that dwelleth in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt." I am not teaching tonight but preaching, so I am just going to tell you the Assyrian is Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, and the Egyptian is fallen Adam, your conscious mind. (Maybe someday I will teach on that.) Be not afraid of Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, he will smite thee with the rod and shall lift up his staff against thee after the manner of Egypt, that is in the ways of the world.
The judgment that is coming through God's servant, Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, is going to come through the ways of the world. Do not expect lightning to strike you, expect judgment to fall in the ways of the world. It could mean loss of material possessions, it could mean loss of relationships, it could mean loss of jobs. It is going to come through natural means. Do not think the judgment of God is going to be some "way-out," supernatural thing. Recognize it when it comes, because if you do not see it as God, you cannot learn and if you do not learn, the judgment shall abide upon you over and over again until you learn what God is trying to teach you.
Chapter 10, Verse 25, "For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall cease," brethren, you are not going to cry forever, the pain is not forever, "and mine anger in their destruction." It is not forever, it is for a set time period. it will come to an end, take heart, be encouraged, there is no other way, but there is a cut-off time. There is a cut-off time. God will not give you more than you could bear. Glory to God.
This is a very important Scripture. God is telling you how to get through this thing, how to survive this thing so that Christ can appear in you. He says it is not going to last long, "for yet a little while and the indignation shall cease and mine anger in their destruction." It is only for a little while. Christ in you is for the life of the ages. Contentment and peace and the glory of God is for a world without end. That means no matter how long this is lasting in your lifetime, no matter how many thousands of years the living soul that died is living in a pain-wrapped world, the Lord says, it is a little while. Because once He appears, His appearing will never cease. Glory to God.
In Chapter 11, Verses 6 and 7, Isaiah preaches about the Kingdom. "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb," the fallen adamic soul shall dwell with the soul of Christ, in its proper moral order, no other way, "and the leopard shall lay down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child," Christ, "shall lead them." Glory to God. Hallelujah. Verse 7, "And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox."
Those of you that remember our teachings in the Book of Ezekiel, the lion typifies Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, "The lion shall eat straw like the ox." Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, is going to be domesticated. He is going to be castrated, and he is going to be brought into submission and serve the spiritual man. The service that God has ordained that he should provide is that he should give form to the creation. Hallelujah. Glory to God. In Chapter 12, Verse 6, God promises that He would dwell within man. "Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion," that is the Sons of God, Zion is the mind of Christ, "for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee." Glory to God. Hallelujah. Thank you, Jesus.
Chapter 13, Verses 8 and 9. It is the battle of the day of the Lord, and all these preachers out there are not telling it as it is. THeY are either saying that there is no battle at all or they are preaching a battle that separates Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, from God. They are saying the battle is against Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, and the demons when, in fact, the battle is between Christ and fallen Adam, the mind of man. The preachers are selling these people short, and the people are going to get caught without any defense at all when this judgment falls. They are not going to know about it. They are not going to be equipped to deal with it. They are not going to know how to take the victory. THeY are going to lose faith in God and not all of them are going to make it.
Verse 9 of Chapter 13,(for some reason I put Verse 9 first) "Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate," that is the land of your fallen adamic soul, "and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it." Verse 8 in Chapter 13 talks about the slaughter of the soul, "And they shall be afraid," who shall be afraid? The natural man, and "pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them," that is childbirth, that is the birth of Christ. They are afraid because Christ is appearing in them, "they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames."
They are going to be burning in the fire of Almighty God. They are going to bear birth pangs, spiritual birth pangs, as Christ comes forth in them, and they shall be afraid, either because they would not know what is happening, or their fallen adamic soul shall fear. We were studying the Two Witnesses, and we are told that when they see Christ they shall tremble with fear. Glory to God. Verse 11 in Chapter 13. Judgment is for the whole world, not just the church. Verse 11, "And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease," there is your pride again, it has got to come down, God would not tolerate it, "and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible."
That is pride again. Most of the world, and a large portion of the church does not even have a revelation of the most serious sin in God's kingdom. It is pride, brethren, God hates it! Why? Because if anything is going to lock you out of the kingdom, it is pride. Why? Because pride lifts its head up against the Word of God, lifts its head up against the minister of God, lifts its head up against the Spirit of God and utterly prevents you from receiving the ministry that is going to bring forth Christ in you. That is why God hates it. It stops you from repenting. You can fornicate and repent, you could steal and repent, you could lie and repent, but that rotten pride would not let you repent, and if you do not repent, there is no mercy. There is just judgment.
God hates it! He hates it more than sexual fornication, which is the big thing in the church today. Now, I am not giving you license to go out and fornicate. What I am trying to impart to you is an understanding of how serious a problem pride is. It is serious! It is serious, it could cause you to lose the appearance of Christ in you. It can cause you to lose your salvation. Yes, I believe all men are going to be saved. The whole living soul that died is going to be saved, but not necessarily every member of it. Glory to God. I am sorry if I am confusing you, though I do not think anyone here is confused. If you want to write to me, if you are listening this tape, I will be glad to answer your letter.
Chapter 13, Verse 19 talks about the destruction of the fallen adamic soul. "And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms," that is the fallen adamic soul, Babylon, "and beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah." God is going to burn her to the ground. Well, Egypt refers to the fallen adamic soul, and Babylon is more or less referring to the religion of man. God is going to burn it to the ground. Hallelujah!
Chapter 14, Verse 25 is a promise that God will defeat Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. "That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot." That refers to fallen Adam and Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, going under the foot of Christ in your mind and in my mind. "Then shall his yoke depart from off them," when? When Christ treads him underfoot, "and his burden shall depart from off their shoulders." When? When Christ treads him underfoot. Until that day, brethren, you are required to wage war, you are required to resist his whispers. You are required to resist and not perform the sin that he commands you to perform. Glory to God.
Chapter 16, Verse 4 promises the destruction of Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. "Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler: for the extortioner," that is Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, "is at an end, the spoiler ceaseth, the oppressors are consumed out of the land." The land of your soul. Hallelujah. Chapter 16, Verse 5 prophesies the Messiah. "And in mercy shall the throne be established," that is the soul of Christ, "and He shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David." That is the body of Christ. David was a natural man. The tabernacle typifies his body, and in this hour the tabernacle of David is the many-membered body of Christ.
"And in mercy shall the throne be established and he shall sit upon it in truth in the tabernacle of David, judging, and seeking judgment, and hasting righteousness." "You have a judgmental spirit, sister." You better believe I do, brother, and you better get the ability to discern what spirit is judging you. Glory to God! He shall sit there judging and seeking judgment and hasting righteousness, and bringing forth righteousness in your soul. Hallelujah, Glory to God.
Chapter 18, Verse 7 talks about fallen Adam being subdued and given as a gift to the Lord, the Lord Jesus Christ. Chapter 18, Verse 7, "In that time," or in that day, "shall the present be brought unto the Lord of Hosts." God is getting a present, and that present is "a people that has been scattered and peeled, and from a people terrible from their beginning hitherto." That is us, brethren. You are not okay because you put on clean underwear everyday. You are not okay, spiritually you are terrible. The living soul is dirty. "A nation meted out and trodden under foot," and that word "meted out" means "bound out." It means it is a spiritual nation around whom bounds have been drawn. Brethren, you are spirit and you are bounded out by your body.
There are boundaries to your spirit and it is your body, you are bounded out and trodden underfoot, that is the fallen adamic soul trodden under the foot of Christ, "whose land the rivers have spoiled," the spiritual life of the fallen adamic soul have spoiled the land of our soul, "to the place of the name of the Lord of Hosts, the Mount Zion." In that time, in that day, shall the present be brought to the Lord of who? Of Hosts, a people, the fallen adamic people scattered and peeled, a people terrible from their beginning hitherto, a nation meted out and trodden underfoot, whose land, whose soul the rivers of Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, have spoiled.
These people are going to be given as a present "to the place of the name of the Lord of Hosts, the Mount Zion," and we shall serve Him. Hallelujah. Glory to God. The end of the judgment is that we shall serve Christ, and He shall rule and reign over us in a mercy that shall far surpass the greatest that you could not possibly accomplish in a natural lifetime. Your servitude to Christ will be so much greater than the greatest you could ever hope to accomplish in this world that I cannot even fathom it myself. I just know that the Bible preaches it.
Chapter 19, Verse 15 is the promise of no more labor. "Neither shall there be any work for Egypt," Egypt is the natural man, "which the head or tail, branch or rush, may do." No more labor, brethren, every need shall be met by spiritual power. No more labor. Glory to God. How many people moan and groan before God, "Oh Lord, I have to work all day, and I am in church three or four nights a week. I just want to serve you all the time."
In this dispensation, God requires us to work, but the day is coming, brethren, when there shall be no more labor. We shall serve the Lord, and have communication with God, and have intercourse with God Almighty everyday (we will still be in the realm of time), every second of every minute of every day. There shall be no more need for labor. Every need shall be met by the spiritual authority which is dwelling within you. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
Chapter 19, Verses 16 and 17 talk about the two souls. We know that there are two souls, fallen Adam and Christ. Verse 16, "In that day shall Egypt" that is the fallen adamic soul, "be like unto women." Well, now what does that mean? Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, has been raging, and he has been in a masculine role, but when Christ appears, he is going to come down to his female role. He shall not be a man. When Christ appears, Christ becomes the man and Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, and Adam, shall come into submission to their husband. Glory to God.
"In that day shall Egypt be like unto women: and it shall be afraid and fear because of the shaking of the hand of the Lord of Hosts," that is judgment "which he shaketh over it." He is going to trod underfoot the fallen adamic soul, and the soul is going to be terrified, both the conscious mind and the unconscious mind. Brethren, the reaction of the natural man to the Sons of God shall be fear! Do not think this ministry is going to be easy, because at first they are afraid of you, they will not recognize you, and then they will attack you. The Lord was speaking to me about this today.
Paul was stoned to death while he was in full stature. The apostles stood around him and raised him from the dead. He was already in full stature. They stoned him to death. They had to put him in a basket over the wall of the city because the men were trying to kill him. These wild beasts would not know who you are, brethren, and we are still going to be in natural bodies when Christ stands up in full stature. This is no "namby pamby" ministry, brethren.
We are still in Chapter 19, Verse 17, talking about two souls, "And the land of Judah" that is the soul of Christ, "shall be a terror unto Egypt," Christ in you shall terrorize fallen Adam in you, "everyone that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself." There is going to be great fear in the people that are being brought into submission to Christ. If you are experiencing great fear and tribulation and hard times after Christ is birthed in you, that is normal. Somehow God is going to get this message to the church.
"And the land of Judah shall be a terror unto Egypt: every one that maketh mention thereof shall be afraid in himself, because of the counsel of the Lord of Hosts," that is the soul of Christ, "which he hath determined against it." That is judgment. When Christ is birthed in you, the first thing He is going to do is judge your fallen adamic soul, and it is not going to be fun. Even if you fully throw yourself in agreement with Christ, it is not going to be fun, but if you know the truth it will get you through.
I can see believers that are not prepared, that have been sold down the river by the preachers that think God is only goodness and mushy love, losing their faith completely when this judgment comes upon them. I can see them giving up all hope, thinking that God has forsaken them. God help us. We are in Chapter 19, and Verse 22 tells the people that the purpose of the judgment is restoration. God is giving us understanding. Verse 22, "And the Lord shall smite Egypt," that is the natural man, "He shall smite the land and heal it."
He is not just beating you, brethren, He is going to heal you also. "And they shall return even to the Lord." After He smites you, brethren, He is going to heal you, and then you are going to return unto God. I suggest to you that you would not have been able to return unto God unless you were smitten. Your pride was welling up so mightily in you, and your rebellion was so overtaking you that if God did not smite you, it would have prevented you from returning to the Lord. Hear this promise! Oh God, it is a miracle!
Who can defeat Leviathan? Who can defeat the mighty Leviathan? None other than God's mighty one, the Lord Jesus Christ. "And the Lord shall smite Egypt: he shall smite and heal it: and they shall return even to the Lord, and he shall be entreated of them," they are going to ask him for help, "and he shall heal them." Glory to God. We are still in Chapter 19. Verse 24 talks about Christ, fallen Adam and Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, in the Kingdom. "In that day," in the last day (it is now), "shall Israel" that is the soul of Christ, "be the third with Egypt," which is Adam "and Assyria" which is Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind.
What our spiritual make-up is going to be in that day when this process is completed is that we shall be made up of Christ, ruling and reigning over a conscious and an unconscious mind that have been totally brought into submission to Christ. "And in that day shall Israel be the third with Egypt and Assyria, even a blessing in the midst of the land." The correct moral order shall have been restored. Hallelujah.
Verse 25 of Chapter 19 talks about God's people, Israel, being the whole world. This is a very controversial message. I was shocked myself when God showed it to me. We have a couple of tapes on it if you want to study it. When natural Israel was God's people, they were called out from the world. In this hour, Israel is every member of the living soul that died, but all Israel is not Israel. Christ is not manifesting in every member in this hour but He shall.
This is Verse 25 of Chapter 19, "Whom the Lord of Hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people." That word "people" in the Hebrew is Strong's #5971, and it means "a tribe." What God is saying is that Egypt, all of Egypt typifying the whole living soul that died, has now become one tribe and He says (well I guess they always were one tribe except that they were divided because of the curse of dispersion), but now the Lord says, "Whom the Lord of Hosts shall bless, saying, Blessed be Egypt my people," this signifies the end of the dispersion, brethren, "and Assyria" the Satanic mind, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, "the work of my hands," God forms the light and creates evil, "and Israel, mine inheritance." Egypt, Assyria and Israel shall exist together in one vessel in the correct moral order under the rulership of Christ, and God shall be the blessing in the midst of them. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
Chapter 21, Verse 3 discusses the labor of the living soul that died. Now, this is just not preached today. "Therefore are my loins" and where are your spiritual loins, anybody know? If you were talking to someone that did not know all that, where would you tell them your spiritual loins were? Anybody? In your mind. Paul said, "Gird up the loins of your mind." It is in your mind, glory to God. "Therefore are my loins filled with pain." My mind hurts me a lot, brethren. Should I do it this way or should I do it that way? Is it the voice of the Lord or is it not the voice of the Lord?
Let me measure this opportunity in my life by everything I have learned about the mind of God. Is it God or is it not God? My mind hurts me a lot, brethren. "Therefore are my loins filled with pain: pangs have taken hold upon me as the pangs of the woman that travaileth." Why? Christ is being birthed in my mind. Well, He is birthed, He is appearing in my mind. "I was bowed down at the hearing of it; I was dismayed at the seeing of it." When I say Christ is birthed, it can be likened to conception in a woman and His appearance can be likened to the birth of a child that the woman brings forth.
Chapter 24, Verses 5 and 6 talks about the condition of the world and the necessary judgment. Chapter 24, Verses 5 and 6, "The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof." Brethren, we are defiled. The church is just as defiled as the heathen. We are defiled, brethren. Where? In our minds. Our thinking is corrupted. Our consciences are seared. In some instances, we have received a delusion. We are defiled, "because they have transgressed the laws." Brethren, either you or your ancestors have transgressed the laws of God, and you have received corruption and defilement in your mind.
Yes, you need deliverance, but first you need to repent, first you need to confess that it is there, you need to repent, and you need to receive the mind of Christ in that area. When the Mind of Christ is established in righteousness in a particular area, and you are functioning in it and laying hold of it, God will cast out the demon. "The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant."
I am not sure what that everlasting covenant is. As I said, I did not study this out, but I suspect it might be the correct moral order. They reversed the moral order. Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, is on top. Christ is tread underfoot. We are still in Chapter 24, Verses 21 to 23 prophecy the judgment of the unconscious and conscious mind of man. Chapter 24, Verses 21 to 23, "And it shall come to pass in that day," that is today, the last day, "that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones," the proud ones, "that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth." I am suggesting to you that the high ones that are on high typify the unconscious mind, and those that are on earth typify the conscious mind of fallen Adam. Glory to God.
Verse 22, "And they shall be gathered together," this is the unconscious mind and the conscious mind, "as prisoners are gathered in the pit." Remember, Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, is going to be chained in the bottomless pit for a thousand years, "and shall be shut up in the prison, and after many days they shall be visited." Glory to God. Verse 23, "Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of Hosts shall reign in Mount Zion." When the Mind of Christ is ruling and reigning in Mount Zion, Glory to God. The moon, which is your natural soul, and the sun, which is the spirit of the fallen adamic man, shall be ashamed. They are going to be covered over by Christ.
"Then the moon shall be confounded, and the sun ashamed, when the Lord of Hosts shall reign in Mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously." Your human spirit and your human soul that are giving you all this trouble are going to be tread underfoot of the Christ in you. Glory to God. The end of all your problems is the appearance of Christ. Chapter 25, Verses 7 to 9 talks about the veil that is over the minds of the whole world. Brethren, the people of the world, they cannot see Christ. Why? Because there is a veil over their minds.
Verses 7 to 9, Chapter 25, "And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all the people, and the veil that is spread over all nations." Did you know there is a circumcision coming, brethren? There is something that is going to be cut away and what it is, is the veil that is over the minds of all the people. Are you having trouble understanding, brethren? Are you having trouble seeing? There is a veil over your mind, brethren, and you need to be circumcised, and the Lord has promised to do it. "He will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all the people, and the veil that is spread over all nations." Hallelujah. Glory to God.
Verse 8, "He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off of all the earth; for the Lord hath spoken it." He is going to take your shame away, brethren, He is going to take away your humiliation, and He is going to give you the joy and the life of his Spirit. Verse 9, "And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the Lord, we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation." Hallelujah. The promise of full salvation. Hold on, He has promised it and He will perform it. Glory to God.
Chapter 26, Verse 19 talks about the resurrection of the dead through the soul of Christ. Brethren, if you are a fallen adamic man the resurrection of the dead shall be accomplished in you when you transfer into the soul of Christ. "Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise." Thy dead men," the members of the fallen adamic soul, "shall live, together with my dead body they shall arise." They shall appear with Christ. When he appears, brethren, we shall appear with him. Glory to God. "Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust," that is us, "for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out her dead." Hallelujah. Glory to God.
Chapter 28, Verses 2 and 3 talk about the warfare between God and the living soul that died. Brethren, they do not want to preach this. Most ministries do not want to preach warfare. If they preach warfare, they tell you it is between God and the demons or God and Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. No, it is not. Well, it is between God and Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, but you have to have a revelation of who Satan is. Satan is us, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. You cannot be absolved from the blame. You cannot be absolved from your sin, you must take the responsibility for your sin if you want to get out of this.
The church does not want to take the responsibility for their sin. They would much rather blame it on a red-horned, long-tailed, Satan, the unconscious part of the carnal mind. Well, it is not true, it is you! Chapter 28, Verses 2 and 3, "Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and a strong one," Christ, "which as a tempest of hail" remember that we found out that hail typified the Sons of God, "and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters, overflowing," that is the Spirit of God, overflowing what? The Satanic mind, the unconscious part of the carnal mind, in the fallen adamic soul, "shall cast down to the earth with the hand."
"Behold, the Lord hath a mighty strong One, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters, overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand." Brethren, the ministry of the Sons of God is judgment. It is judgment. It is judgment. Glory to God. Verse 3, "The crownlets of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim shall be trodden underfoot." The crownlets of pride, the fallen adamic soul, shall be trodden under the feet of Christ. Hallelujah.
Chapter 30, Verses 1, 9, 10 and 14 talk about the condition of the church and judgment. Chapter 30, Verse 1, "The World of Emanation to the rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my Spirit, that they may add sin to sin." That is talking about what is going on in the church today. They call themselves God's people, but they take the counsel that is not of God, and they cover themselves with a spirit that is not God. It is really their own spirit, because they are not hearing what they want to hear from the Lord.
Verse 9, "That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord." They want to follow after their own law. Well, you cannot, you cannot. Because if you do, judgment will fall upon you. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Chapter 30, we are in verse 10, "Which say to the seers," this is the rebellious children which say to the seers, "See not and to the prophets, prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits." This is what the rebellious house of Israel is saying, "See not and to the prophets, prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits." It is all through the church. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
Verse 14, this is what He is going to do, "And he shall break it as the breaking of the potter's vessel that is broken in pieces," that is the fallen adamic soul, He is going to break it to pieces, "He shall not spare," and He would not have mercy because He is going to be saving your life through this judgment, "so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit." There is not going to be anything whole left of this fallen adamic soul. He is going to break it to shivers. Glory to God.
Also in Chapter 30, Verses 20 and 21 talk about the fact that all shall hear the instruction of the Lord clearly. We just spoke about the rebellious children in the church that are lying and receiving lies in their hearts, and I mentioned a few minutes ago how hard it is sometimes to hear the voice of the Lord, but the promise of God is that all shall hear the instructions of the Lord clearly. Chapter 30, verses 20 and 21, "And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity," that is judgment, hard times, "and the water of affliction, yet shall not thy teachers be removed into a corner any more, but thine eyes shall see thy teachers."
It Is going to be clear, it is going to come to the realm of appearance, that is talking about the Sons of God. There is going to be authority in men that you are going to know that it is the authority of God, that you can trust it. It is a terrible condition we have today. You go to a church and you have to listen to every word that minister says and say, "Is it God? Is it not God? Should I believe him, am I being deceived? Am I falling into idolatry? Am I becoming the victim of witchcraft?"
That is what you have to do in the church world today because the ministers are still natural men, and large numbers of them are moving in the spirit of witchcraft, but the day is coming that the counsel of the Lord shall appear in men that you shall be comforted and assured are the full ministers of God. You can rest and believe the word that they give you in peace and in truth.
Chapter 31, Verses 1 and 3 talk about God rebuking man's trust in the flesh. "The World of Emanation to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!" They trust in their ability to earn a living, they trust in their education, they trust in their medication, they trust in their knowledge, but the Lord says, "The World of Emanation be unto them." Verse 3, "Now the Egyptians," that is the natural men, "are men, and not God."
I just had someone up here talking about abortion to me. He said, "The scientists have not proven that there is life at conception." I say unto everyone that is involved in that mind set, "The Egyptians are men, and not God; and their horses flesh and not spirit." When the Lord shall stretch out his hand, both he that helpeth shall fall, and he that is holpen shall fall down, and they shall fail together." God is bringing down the institution of the natural man. If you are a Christian, and there is any area of your life in which you still seek help from man, you better get on your face before God and ask for deliverance before he destroys that institution.
Because, brethren, if in the hour that God tears down that institution, whether it be the medical institution, whether it be the way you get your money, whether it be the way you get your emotional needs satisfied, in the hour that God tears it down, if you are not in a spiritual condition where you can get that need met from God, you are going to be a spiritual orphan, and great stress and travail shall come upon you. Get it now while grace is still flowing. Ask God for it, ask Him to help you, brethren, because He is tearing down these institutions of men, He is tearing them to the ground. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
Going on to Chapter 32, Verse 14 talks about the end. The end of what? The end of everything that we have been talking about. It is judgment that brings forth righteousness. The end is righteousness and righteousness is a man. His name is Christ Jesus. Glory to God. Chapter 32, Verse 14, "Because the palaces shall be forsaken; the multitude of the city shall be left; the forts and towers shall be for dens forever, a joy of wild asses, a pasture of flocks." I do not know what I did there. Chapter 32, Verse 14. Glory to God. I think I put down the wrong verse. That was a judgment in Verse 14.
Verse 15 says, "Until," the living soul is going to be desolate until, "the spirit be poured upon us from on high," that is Christ, "and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be counted for a forest. Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field." That is the verse I wanted, Verse 16. "Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness," that is the living soul, "and righteousness remain in the fruitful field." The end of all your travail, your pain, your torment, and your distress is righteousness, the peaceable fruit of righteousness. Glory to God.
Chapter 33 (this is the end), Verse 2 talks about the trouble that comes when God deals with you. "You mean, God would let trouble come upon you?" You better believe it, brethren. Chapter 33 Verse 2, "O Lord, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble."
