Hallelujah. Glory to God. OK. I have a couple of comments for you on the last message. We are in the Book of Daniel. Glory to God. And with regard to Verse 12 of Chapter 7 of Daniel, one of the words in that verse was translated waste away and I related it to the idea of menstruation, but I don't think that I made the idea of spiritual menstruation as it's used in Verse 12 clear. In the event described in Verse 12 the entire egg or -- what is the egg, does anybody remember what a spiritual egg is? Talking about menstruation. It’s the member of the living soul.

 

OK. In the event described in Verse 12 the entire egg or the member of the living soul is not utterly wasted away as in natural menstruation. Because what happens in natural menstruation? The egg is not fertilized and it’s passed from the body in the form of blood and it’s never seen again, but in spiritual menstruation the egg which is a primitive form of spiritual life is wasted away and that it shall no longer exist, but shall be converted into the higher life form of Christ. That's the sense that it’s used in Daniel 7:12. The egg is wasted away and that it's been converted into the higher life form of Christ.

 

So everything that God does turns out to be positive, so our natural example would be an ovarian egg that is not passed from the body in menstruation, but still no longer exists, why, because it's been converted into a higher life form. An embryo, then a fetus and eventually a human being. For all intents and purposes the ovarian egg no longer exists. Hallelujah. So, although the Scripture uses a word describing menstruation to put the idea of wasting away across, it is not implying in this instant. The total destruction of the egg as in natural menstruation, but the wasting away of a primitive life form that is swallowed up by the greater life form. Does anybody not understand that?

 

OK. The second point on the last message. OK. The second point of correction is on with regard to Daniel 7:14 where I talk about the word people. And I told you on the last message that the word people means of group of people gathered together for any purpose, but I forgot to tell you that in the Scripture for scriptural purposes this work typifies only two groups. Those that have a relationship with God and those that do not. The third point is with regard to Daniel 7 there's a phrase that says, “And they shall serve him.” And I told you that the literal translation of that phrase was to serve himself and I translated it should break open that they -- that the many members of the living soul should break open their Adamic souls and pierce through into the realm of God’s spirit.

 

And I just want to remind you right now that the word serve can be translated pierce through. So, we’re talking about the phrase they shall serve him. I told you it means they shall serve him -- to serve himself and I translated it that they should break open their Adamic souls and pierce through into the realm of God’s spirit. But I don't think that I made my point very clear, so what I was trying to say is that the spiritual life buried within the fallen Adam who was the -- who was in the form of his many members, all of which are Christ in his humble condition if you remember that. That these many natural members of the living soul should pierce through their own fallen human souls into the realm of God’s spirit where their spiritual life will rule over their soul life or the soulish or fallen Adam.

 

So, when I say that they should serve himself, what they're saying is that the natural man should serve the spiritual man. Oh, God, I think I messed that up again. What I'm saying is that we are a spiritual man, there's a spiritual man buried deep within us. And this phrase to serve himself what it really means is that we should pierce through, come into our own being, what we’re really supposed to be; the spiritual man and bring ourselves, our natural man into submission, so that the spiritual man should serve himself. Who is himself? Himself is the spiritual man. We’re both the same. Glory to God.

 

OK. If you have any questions about that I'll be glad to answer them for you. I don't know about you, but I am continuously reviewing old messages, and I put on what I considered one of the most difficult messages preached in this ministry today. And it was just so clear to me and I don’t -- I've told you many times. I don't know whether you remember or not, but I'm learning just as you are and I'm growing spiritually just as you are through these teachings. And what I'm trying to tell you is that I find the spiritual growth in me so intense that when I went back to a message that was maybe 6 months old that I found extremely difficult at the time, I just found that my mind received it with much less of a problem than 6 months ago.

 

So, what I'm trying to tell you is that I really perceived the spiritual growth in me, and I believe I don't -- that there must be some spiritual growth in you. I don't know what measure it is, but it doesn't matter what measure it is. Beware of spiritual competition. It doesn't matter if one person is growing a mile a year and you're growing a quarter of a mile year. It doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is that you're growing. Get your eyes off of the other person. Put your eyes on Jesus and whatever he does in you be grateful for. Beware of spiritual competition. It is pride. It will destroy it. And if you're envious of another person's ministry you are not hurting that person, you are only destroying your own ministry and you're own walk with Christ. Beware. Beware of pride. It is the greatest enemy of the spiritual man.

 

I have a little cold tonight, so if you hear some empty spaces on the message I'm just unfortunately blowing my nose. Please bear with me. OK. We're going to recap Daniel Chapter 7, Verses 11 to 14. “Then I continued to look at the vision, because of the utterance of the powerful things that Christ spoke of. I continued to look within my own mind until the threefold spirit of the fallen Adam was cut off and his spiritual authority over the living soul dispersed and lapped up by the fire of God. And the other part of the fallen Adam, even the sin-stained human soul, they had Christ added to them. Nevertheless their soulish lives were prolonged until the season appointed for them to waste away.” Glory to God.

 

“I continued to look into the realm of the spirit, because my soul was prostrated before the Lord and there he was the offspring of the Spirit of God and mortal man, and he was appearing in and becoming one with many human souls that had been cleansed from sin. And they were set free from the realm of time and they drew near to the Father and appeared in front of Him and became His body in the realm of appearance. And they were set up within the fallen Adam, a foundation that gave him mastery over his own soul. A spirit that produces life from within itself and a glorified body. Even Christ, so that all the peoples who know God and all the peo- -- all those that don't. All nationalities and all groups of people with different ethnic backgrounds, but who speak the same language should break open their Adamic souls and pierce through into the realm of God’s spirit. Adam’s mastery over his own soul is for the life of the ages. He shall never lose it and his glorified body shall not be destroyed.” Hallelujah.

 

OK. We're starting with Verse 15 and I would like to call your attention to the fact that Verse 15 begins the Daniels request for an interpretation of his vision and the answer which is in fact the interpretation. We've gone through Verse 19 today. Hallelujah. Verse 15, “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.” The word grieved is Strong’s 3735. It means pained, sorrowed. However Strong’s says this word, which means pained and sorrowed, which can be translated pained or sorrowed. Strong’s says this word corresponds to number 3738. In other words that's the root that this word came from. And that word 3738 is translated to dig a well or to open.

 

In other words Daniel spirit was open to the instruction of God. And Thayer says -- this word I’m hesitating, because Thayer is my Greek Lexicon. I probably made a mistake that should be sentenced [?Gesenius?]. And [?Gesenius?] says this word corresponds to 3742, which means cherub, in other words, Daniel. At this moment that he was saying he was grieved -- I'm saying that that's a misinterpretation for this Scripture and what he was really saying was at this moment Daniel was cherubised. Daniel was made into a cherub. And what is a cherub? A cherub is the holy creature that surrounds the throne of God. The two cherubs were over the mercy sea if you recall.

 

So, at this moment Daniel was made into a cherub. He was made holy or holiness was imputed to him. Why? So that he could receive the word of the Lord. So what am I saying? This translation, “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit,” is an inaccurate translation in view of the context of the Scripture Verse. Hallelujah. The King James translators did not understand what God was saying and they chose translations that satisfied their carnal minds, but did not express the intention of the Lord in this Scripture. Daniel was not grieved in his spirit; he was open in his spirit to receive the word of the Lord. “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit.” The word spirit nearly means spirit.

 

And I have a comment for you here. Let me see what I said. More than 6 years ago I did a study on the word spirit and soul. Yes. More than 6 years ago I did a study on the word spirit and soul and I was very surprised at that time to find out that very frequently the Scripture used one of the words translated soul. There's more than one word translated soul. And very frequently the Scripture used a word translated soul to express what according to the sense of the verse should have been the spirit of a man. And I could not understand it. It is very rare in this Scripture to find the Hebrew word that is translated spirit, which is ru'ach. It’s very rare to find that word describing a man’s spirit. It's usually one of the Hebrew words that are translated soul. Or that if you look it up and study the word to its root. It mean soul, it doesn't mean spirit.

 

Well, I couldn't figure that out, so I put it on the shelf. And more recently the Lord has shown me that he will use one of the Hebrew words translated soul to describe man's spirit when the intent of the verse is to express the spirit of the fallen man, which is joined to Satan. If God wants to express the spirit of a fallen man, he will use a Hebrew word that really means soul, because if your spirit is not attached to the spirit of God, in God's eyes its soul. Anybody having a problem with that? OK. So, what am I trying to tell you?

 

Strong's 7308, which is translated spirit in Verse 15 is always the Hebrew word used to describe the Lord ru'ach and it is also the Hebrew word used to describe man's spirit when that spirit is joined to God, even temporarily, such as when the Spirit of God is imputed to a man during a specific visitation. What kind of a specific visitation? When a man prophesies, when a man speaks in tongues he may not have an imparted anointing. He may be a very natural man, but in that moment God has imputed his spirit to him and if that event was being described in the Hebrew language, the spirit of the man would be Strong's 7308. It would be described as ru'ach, because in that moment man's spirit is joined to the spirit of God.

 

And here in Verse 15, “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit.” That word spirit is the Hebrew word 7308. The word that describes and indicates the fact that Daniel’s spirit at this moment was joined to the Spirit of God. And we know that Daniel could not have possibly had the imparted anointing, because there was no imparted anointing before the crucifixion. The greatest of God's prophets never had more than an imputed anointing. Jesus said the least in the kingdom of God is greater than the greatest of the prophets. Why? Because if you are to be in the kingdom of God you must have the imparted anointing. And here's another error in the church today. Many Christians going around thinking they’re in the kingdom of God, because this is the new covenant, but, brethren, the new covenant is spiritual. The kingdom of God is within you, and in this day and age, 2,000 years after the crucifixion we have some Christians, most Christians with just an imputed anointing. Why? Christ has not yet been formed in them. Hallelujah.

 

OK. Let's get back to this message here. Glory to God. OK. “I, Daniel, was grieved in the midst of my spirit.” Well, we're finding out that it means that I, Daniel, was open to the Holy Spirit of God in my spirit, which we know that his spirit was joined to Spirit of God, because of the Hebrew word used to describe that spirit. So, Daniel was in a spiritual condition where he was open to receive from the Spirit of God. Why? Because the spirit of God had joined himself to Daniel’s spirit in that moment. Hallelujah.

 

In the midst of my body and the word midst is Strong's 1459. It means middle. And the word body is Strong’s 5085. This is the only time this Hebrew word is translated body. And what it really means is a sheath, a receptacle. Both, [and Strong’s say this word describes the body as the sheath of the soul. In other words, as a sheath holds a sword, you know, this is a description given in both [?Gesenius?] and Strong’s. As a sheath holds a sword, and we know that a sword is a type of the spirit. This word body is used as the receptacle that holds the soul. Glory to God. But we suggest to you that the soul, as the sheath of the sword holds the spirit.

 

He said -- let me give you that again, I think I confused it. “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body.” He is -- “I, Daniel, was open to the Spirit of God in the middle of my body.” What I'm suggesting to you is that the human spirit is in the midst of the soul that the soul is acting as a sheath for the spirit. And that even though this word is described body, it's really talking about the soul, because the soul is the receptacle that holds the human spirit. And Daniel is saying, “I, Daniel, was open in my spirit that was attached to God and I was -- and that spirit of mine was in the midst of my soul.” Now, why would Daniel say that? Daniel is emphasizing that this is the human spirit he's talking about. He’s saying my spirit that was in the midst of my soul was open to God and divisions of my head.

 

Well, let me give you an alternate translation on that first half of Daniel 7:15. “I, Daniel, was made holy in the spirit, which is in the midst of my soul, even my human spirit.” Daniel is saying that his human spirit was made holy. Why? Because the spirit of God joined to it. Hallelujah. Continuing with, “And the visions of my head troubled me.” This word visions is Strong's 2376. It is the same Hebrew word previously used in this chapter and it means to dream or gaze upon, to see in the spirit. And for the purposes of this Verse we are going to translate this word spiritual communications. We're going to translate this word visions, spiritual communications. Why? Because the Spirit of God is imparting understanding to Daniel by the means of visions. God is not speaking in an audible voice to Daniel. He is showing him visions. Giving him spiritual symbols.

 

And we have several teachings, I do not have the message numbers for you where we describe the fact that when God communicates with you in an audible voice, you should not be lifted up in pride, because that is an immature form of communication. God communicates with -- the more mature you are the more likely God is to communicate with you through symbols and visions. God does not speak in language. It’s just fallen man that speaks in language and God will frequently come down to our level, but it’s his ultimate plan to bring us up to his level and he doesn't speak in language. He speaks in symbols and vision. “And the visions of my head troubled me.” The word head is Strong’s 7217 and it means head as a physical head or head as a chief or a leader.

 

[?Gesenius?] says, “Visions of the head, which are presented to the mind.” The King James says, “Visions of my head troubled me,” and [?Gesenius?] expands that and says what this verse means is visions of his head were presented to his mind. Or visions were imparted to Daniel which were not of the mind or the soul, nor of his own human spirit which has already been described as open. In other words the visions must have come from Daniel's master, the Spirit of God. The visions of my head were presented to my mind. Well, the human spirit is a part of the mind. So, we’re going through all this to try to establish to you that this vision that Daniel was receiving was not from his own mind, but was indeed from the Spirit of God that had joined to his human spirit, opened his human spirit. And that we are talking about two totally different spirits here; Daniel’s human spirit and the Spirit of God.

 

These visions were from God. “And divisions of my head troubled me.” This word troubled is Strong’s 927 and it means terrified, to haste. And the intent of the verb is that when you're frightened enough you run fast. Strong’s says that it corresponds to Strong's 926, which means to tremble. And we mentioned on several other messages going back a while that the word tremble, maybe going back a year ago. This word trembles suggests vibration, which is the way that the spirit moves. Spirits don't walk, they don't have legs. They vibrate like light waves and radio waves. And this word trembles suggests vibration, which suggests spiritual movement.

 

“And the visions of my head.” The visions that Daniel was receiving in his mind vibrated towards him. They didn't trouble him, they vibrated towards him. The only witness I could find in this Scripture does not translate -- that does not -- this -- the only witness that I could find to this does not translate the word vibrate, but it translates the word thrust. This word troubled -- I have found a Scripture that translates it thrust. And what I'm trying to establish is that the Spirit of God thrust itself into the mind of Daniel. Second Chronicles 2, Verse 20. “And Azariah, the chief priest and all the priests looked upon him. And behold he was leprous in his forehead and they thrust him out from thence.” Those words they thrust him out, that's the same Hebrew word translated troubled.

 

Alternate translation. Second half of Daniel 7:15. “And spiritual communications from the Lord were thrust into me.” Daniel was not afraid nor did Daniel tremble. Daniel had a spiritual experience with the Spirit of Almighty God.

 

Author translation. The whole of Daniel 7:15. “I, Daniel, was made holy in the spirit, which is in the midst of my soul, even my own human spirit and spiritual communications from the Lord were thrust into me.” I declare to you he was neither afraid nor troubled. He received a visitation from Almighty God. Verse 16, “I came near unto one of them that stood by and asked him the truth of all this, so he told me and made me to know the interpretation of the things.” The words came near are Strong’s 2127. This is the same Hebrew word translated brought near and it means to approach for whatever purpose. I see didn't put down the verse. OK. These words brought near are discussed. It's from a Scripture in Isaiah. And it’s discussed on message number 10.

 

If you would like a deeper understanding of the spiritual significance of this word to come near and it’s really talking about the ability to approach near unto God. I hope everybody knows that God cannot be approached without permission, brethren. You cannot find God unless he gives you special dispensation. He is hidden from most of the world in this hour. You cannot approach near unto him without his power. If you try you could die. Hallelujah. “I came near unto one of them, I approach near unto one.” This word one is Strong's 2298 and it means one, it means the first. It also can mean together.

 

The two were one, the two were together and it's from a root 2580 -- I wasn't feeling too well this week, my notes are a little botchy. This number might be wrong. It's from a root 20 -- 258 and 259, if that's correct. And it means United, a numeral from the verb unify; one. The two were one, the three were one. It can also be translated United, together or unify. And I'm suggesting to you that Adam in both his innocent and fallen conditions have not been and shall not be cast away. We know that the innocent Adam was swallowed up by the fallen Adam. The innocent Adam no longer exists. He is one with the fallen Adam that we see in the world today.

 

And when Christ appears in the fallen Adam the fallen Adam shall cease to exist. He shall have been swallowed up by Christ. Neither the innocent Adam, nor the fallen Adam shall have gone away anywhere. We shall exist as a part of their new form. So, what am I saying to you? Strong's 259 is the Hebrew word -- well, let me say this first. What am I saying to you? I'm saying to you that this phrase that says, “I came near unto one of them.” I'm trying to establish that what the verse is really saying is that Daniel approached the unified man. He approached the unified beast. He approached the unified living creature. He approached the fourth beast which was all of them together. That's what I'm suggesting to you. And I suggest that you read these verses. There is no one else there for Daniel to have approached to ask for the interpretation of his dream. There was no angel; there was nobody there.

 

Who did Daniel approach to? He approached to the fourth beast who had swallowed up all of them and was now -- the all four beasts were now one and Daniel went to the one -- to the fourth beast. Daniel approached unto Christ I suggest to you and said unto him I want to know the truth of all this. Strong's 259 is the Hebrew word used in the phrase the Lord your God is one -- oh -- is one God. I guess that number was right up there when I said number 258 and 259. Strong’s 259 is the Hebrew word used in the phrase the Lord your God is one God. The Interlinear reads, “I came near to one of those who stood by.” Back to Daniel now. The Interlinear reads, “I came near to one of those who stood by.” The King James says, “I came near unto one of them.” But the Interlinear says I came near to one of those who stood by. Well, who stood by? Daniel. The beast.

 

Brethren, Daniel was in a trance. His vision was so real that he was in it. That he could talk to the members of the vision. Glory to God. “I came near to one of those who stood by.” And I suggest to you that Daniel had more than a vision, that he had actually entered into the realm of the Spirit of God and that these things were not only not as real as we are here, but more real than we are here. We are the illusion. We are the lie. The things and the sights in the realm of the spirit are what is the reality.

 

OK. We're going to translate this verse, “I approach the united of those who incarnated. I came near unto one of them. I came near unto the united of those who incarnated.” Now, remember all of these beasts have incarnated. If you go back and study the prior teachings, they’ve all incarnated. “I came near unto one of them. I came here unto the unified beast that had incarnated. I approach the united of those who incarnated or I approached the man in whom all of those who incarnated were unified, or I approached the unified man or I approached the completed creation of God, which is the fourth beast, even Christ.” Daniel approached unto Christ to ask him the truth of his vision.

 

Alternate translation. The first third. Daniel Ver- -- Chapter 7, Verse 16. Glory to God. “I approached the completed creation of God which is the fourth beast, even Christ.” Continuing with, “And asked him the truth of all this.” This word asked is Strong's 1156. It is the only time it is translated asked in Strong's Concordance and it means to seek, to ask, to petition and it comes from a root that means to ardently desire and long for something. So, Daniel was not just curious, he asked the fourth beast or Christ the truth of this, because there was a burning for the truth of God in his heart. Did you ever have a burning for the truth of God in your heart, brother, brethren? I declare to you if your heart is burning with a desire, with a longing, with a Godly lust to understand the things of God you shall not be ashamed. You may or may not have to wait a season, but you shall not be ashamed.

 

I've had a burning and a longing, and a lust in my heart since I was 10 years old, and the Lord did not honor that longing and that lust until I was about 29. But when he answered my prayer, brethren, look at the glory that He’s imparted into me. But I declare to you, you cannot have that longing and that lust in your heart unless God puts it there.  If you don't have it and you want it, ask Him for it. Don't fake it, brethren. Don't fake it. Ask Him for the real thing. The church is filled with people bound by religious spirits that want God so badly that they fake it. As God who giveth to all who petition Him liberally. Don't be jealous of someone else. God has enough for everybody. Hallelujah.

 

“And I asked him the truth of all this.” The word truth in Strong's 330, it’s the only -- 3330, it's the only time this word is translated truth in Strong's Concordance and it means certainty, truth, established, firm, valid. Daniel wanted to be assured that his vision was from the Spirit of God and not from his own mind.

 

Alternate translation. Second third Daniel Chapter 7, Verse 16, “And ardently, and Daniel ardently asked to know what the vision really meant.” Glory to God. Continuing with, “So he told me and made me know the interpretation of the things.” The word told is Strong's 560. It means to tell, to declare, to explain. So, he told me, he declared it to me, he explained it to me and made me to know the interpretation. The word to know is Strong's 3046 and it means to certify, to make known, to teach, to legally assure one that something is true. So Daniel wanted two things here. He wanted to know what the vision really meant and then he wanted to be assured that the vision and that the un -- that the understanding that was being imparted to him was of the Spirit of God and not of his carnal mind. Glory to God. Hallelujah.

 

This is a lesson for all of us that get dreams and visions. First we should petition the Lord to see if it is of Him, then we should ask for the understanding and to be asked to be assured that the understanding that we have is not from our carnal mind. Did you know that you could receive a vision from God and be snared in receiving and understanding or in interpretation from your own carnal mind? Getting the impartation from Christ is not enough, you've got to get the understanding that He is imparting to you by this vision or a dream or whatever form of visitation it is. So he told me and made me to know the interpretation of the things. The word interpretation is Strong’s 6591, and it means to open up the understanding.

 

So he explained it to me and he made -- and he legal -- and assured me that what he was telling me was the legal truth of God’s word and he helped me understand -- you see someone could explain something to you, but that doesn't mean you're going to understand it. Did you know that? That someone could explain something to you for 24 hours straight and if God doesn't open up your understanding you will not understand it. I heard a preacher preach once. You could sit in this congregation five nights a week, but don't think that's going to assure you're getting this thing, because your physical body and your intellectual ability has nothing to do with it, brethren. If God blinds you, you are blinded. You could attend every meeting, you could listen to every message 60 times, if God has blinded you, give it up now. You're wasting your time.

 

Repent of your sin whatever it is and ask God to give you vision. God help us. The carnality in the church. They really think they could fool God. They think they could rebel against God and they're going to get this thing anyway. They're not. I assure you they're not. Hallelujah. Glory to God. Hallelujah. And on the other hand don't think that if God has given you dispensation to receive his deep doctrine that you’ll get it without working. You have to work. You have to submit yourself to the teaching. You have to submit yourself to the anointing.

 

You have to sit here, even though you don't understand everything and expose yourself to it. And little by little, surely by surely your ability to understand shall increase. Don't worry if you don't understand everything, but expose yourself to it. Put in the time, put in the hours, review the message. You got to do the work and you need the dispensation from God. You need both, brethren. God doesn't give this away. You’ve got to do your part. The only thing that's free is the free gift of salvation. After that he calls you to work, brethren. He calls you to work. Glory to God. “So, he told me and made me to know the interpretation of the things.” The word interpretation means to open up the understanding and the word things is Strong's 4406 and that means the word, the discourse or the subject that we're talking about here and that subject is the vision.

 

Alternate translation. The third third of Daniel 7:16. “So Christ explained the vision to me and assured me that the understanding that I had was of God.” Glory to God. “So Christ explained the vision to me.” Must think I left something out here. “So Christ's explained the vision to me and gave me the understanding of the vision and assured me that the understanding that I had was of God.”

 

Alternate translation Daniel Chapter 7, Verse 16. “I approached the completed creation of God which is the fourth beast, even Christ, and ardently asked to know what the vision really meant. So Christ explained it to me and gave me the ability to understand it and assured me that the vision was of God.” Hallelujah. Verse 17. Glory to God. “These great beasts which are four are four kings, which shall rise -- which shall arise out of the earth.” The word great is Strong’s 7260. We've had this several times through Chapter 7 of Daniel. It means domineering and character. And I ask you to remember that this Hebrew word is translated great signs in Daniel 4:3 and what I'm suggesting to you is that when this word which is primarily means domineering and character are overbearing or powerful in character when it's applied to Christ it has to -- the translation has to become positive.

 

So these great beasts which are four, which have now become Christ. What it means is when the -- what the word great means is great in the power and authority and overbearing this of God. God overshadows everything else, but it’s glorious and it’s good. These great beasts, the word beasts means living creatures and it says these great beasts which are four. The word four is the number four Strong’s 703. You might want to review message number 40, part two about being squared in the spirit and squared in the soul. And I’ll remind you that to be squared in your spirit means spirit -- the completion of your spirit which is spiritual maturity coming forth in your human spirit which is in fact Christ and that being squared in your soul refers to the full potential of the soul in the individual. It means soulish maturity and a mature body and to be squared for the entire living soul means that the living soul shall come to the fullest number of members that God has ordained for it to have.

 

“These great beasts which are four are four kings.” And the word king is Strong's 4430. It means royalty and it is from a root that means to ascend to the throne, to induct into royalty. “So these great beasts which are four are four kings.” Glory to God. I'm suggesting to you that this -- these great beasts which are all one, which is Christ; they are squared in their soul and they are squared in their spirits and they have ascended to royalty. They were natural men who have matured into spiritual men. They have ascended to the throne of Christ. “And these great beasts which are four are four kings which shall arise out of the earth.” Now the word arise is Strong's 6966. It means to stand up, to set up, to incarnate and we’d had that word several times in throughout Chapter 7.

 

Alternate translation. Daniel Chapter 7, Verse 17. “These wonderful living creatures which have matured to their full spiritual potential and increased to the.” -- Well, I use that word wonderful, there I see. I turned great into wonderful, because they are powerfully, wonderfully strong in Christ. “These wonderful living creatures which have matured to their full spiritual potential and increased to the number of souls and bodies that complete the living soul are human beings who have ascended to the throne of Jesus Christ and become spiritual men. They shall stand up in the authority of Jesus Christ and rule the earth of their souls. These great powerful wonderful living creatures which have matured to their full spiritual potential.”

 

They are four; they have matured to their full spiritual potential and increased to the number of souls and bodies that complete the living soul are human beings who have ascended to the throne of Jesus Christ, their King. The human beings that have ascended to the throne of Jesus Christ have become spiritual men. They have been inducted into the royalty of the kingdom of God. They shall arise up out of the earth. They shall stand up in the authority of Jesus Christ and rule the earth of their souls. We are speaking here about the appearance of the man-child. Even the incarnation of a many-membered Christ in the flesh of carnal man.

 

Chapter 7 of the Book of Daniel. “But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.” The word but here is Strong's 235 and that is a Greek reference. This is one of those words which is so similar in Greek and Hebrew that Strong's does not make a Hebrew listing for it, so we looked it up in the Greek and we are told that this word translated but by the King James translators can also be translated indeed. And for the purposes of Verse 18, we are going to translate it indeed. “Indeed the saints of the Most High.” Saints mean holy ones. It’s Strong’s 6922. The Most High is Strong's 5946, and that's the word that means Supreme Most High, when it’s used throughout the Scriptures describe God and we are going to call the Son of God Jesus Christ in this case.

 

The holy ones of the Most High or the sinless ones that belong to the Most High or Jesus Christ. Or the sinless ones that are a part of Jesus Christ or the sinless ones that are one with Jesus Christ. But the saints of the Most High -- the sinless ones that have become one with Jesus Christ, because, brethren, you and I -- neither you nor I shall be without sin until we are joined to Jesus Christ. Where? In our minds. Hallelujah. Glory to God. If you like to you might want to review message number 36, parts three, five and six. Message three of part six to do -- to review the concept of man being joined to God in his mind. But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom. This word take is Strong’s 6902. It is the only time translated “take” in Strong's Concordance and it means to acquire, to take hold of, to enter into. To acquire, to take hold of or to enter into. 

 

“But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom.” This word kingdom is Strong's 4437. It means dominion, kingly realm, kingdom of God. And I'm suggesting to you that the kingdom of God is indeed the mind of Christ. “Behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Matthew 12:28, “But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God then the kingdom of God is come unto you.” The kingdom of God was within Jesus and it was in his mind, and it was in his mind because his mind was joined to the mind of the Father. Matthew 25:34, “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, come ye blessed of my Father inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” And I'm suggesting to you that the saints that have become one with Jesus Christ have inherited the kingdom in our minds that was prepared for them from before the foundation of the world.

 

Luke 10, Verses 8 and 9. “And whatsoever city he enter and they receive you, eat such things as I set before you and heal the sick that are there in and say unto them; The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.” Then Jesus is speaking to the apostles. The kingdom of God is within the apostles and it’s within their mind, because their mind had become intertwined with the mind of Jesus Christ. Glory to God. “The saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom.” The word possess is Strong's 2631, this is the only time it's translated possess, and [?Gesenius?] says, “The primary idea is binding together thus to heap up or lay up to possess something by joining it to you.” To possess something by joining it to you. Matthew 16:19, “I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven and whatsoever thou shall find on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

 

And I'm suggesting to you that what's being bound to heaven is the minds of men. Glory to God. Luke 17:21, “Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” Glory to God. The kingdom of God is within you and possessing the kingdom refers to being joined to it. The kingdom of God is in the joining of our minds to Christ and if you'd like to review binding and loosing, and the keys to the kingdom, that's on message 35, part three; both of those issues binding and loosing and the keys to the kingdom. And if you’d like further review of binding and loosing that's on message 36, parts five and part six, message three. “And they shall possess the kingdom, glory to God, forever, even forever and ever.” And this word ever is Strong's 5957. It talks about remote time, the past or the future indefinitely. Glory to God. It's talking about world without end. Hallelujah. It's talking about a period of time that is without end.

 

Alternate translation. Daniel Chapter 7, Verse 18. “And indeed the men who are joined in their minds to Jesus Christ shall take authority over their own souls and become sinless. They shall enter into the kingdom of God, which is in the mind of Christ and they shall be joined to the mind of Christ for an indefinite period of time even for the time period or age which shall be the greatest of all ages. But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom and indeed the men who are joined in their minds to Jesus Christ shall take authority over their own souls and become sinless. And they shall enter into the kingdom of God and they shall possess the kingdom forever and ever. And they shall enter into the kingdom of God which is the mind of Christ and they shall be joined to the mind of Christ forever and ever for an indefinite period of time, even for the time period or age which shall be the greatest of all ages.” Hallelujah.

 

Note the phrase, possess the kingdom, which I translated joined in their minds to Jesus Christ appears in the alternate translation before the phrase, take the kingdom, which I translated enter into the kingdom of God. I reversed those two phrases that's what I'm telling you. The original Greek says, “But the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom.” And in the alternate translation I translated it, “But the saints of the Most High shall possess the kingdom and take the kingdom.”

 

I reversed it, because it's one of those situations we’ve talked about it several times where the Scripture seems to have it backwards and the reason the Scripture has it bac- -- it doesn't really have it backwards, it looks that way to us, is that we are on the opposite side of a mirror of the spiritual realm of God. And what appears to be happening first to us -- what appears to be happening last to us is really happening first from the other side of the mirror, which is the realm of the spirit. But for us to understand it I have to switch it around.

 

So let me read that to you one more time. “And indeed the men who are joined in their minds to Jesus Christ shall take authority over their own souls and become sinless. They shall enter into the King,” -- well, let me give it to you the other way. I don't know why I didn’t break this down into two parts. Forgive me, please. I guess I didn't do that good a job this week. I really was pretty sick. “And indeed the men who are joined in their minds to Jesus Christ shall take authority over their own souls and become sinless. But the saints of the Most High shall possess the kingdom. They shall be joined in their minds to Jesus Christ and take authority over their own soul and become sinless. They shall also take the kingdom.” Glory to God. “They shall enter into the kingdom of God which is the mind of Christ and they shall be joined to the mind of Christ for an indefinite period of time even forever and ever. Or for -- even for a time period or age which shall be the greatest of all ages.” Glory to God.

 

And you might like to review no more need for a mediator on message 38, part eight and message 36, part six. Message one. Glory to God. Hallelujah. “They shall be joined to the mind of Christ for this indefinite period of time, but this indefinite period of time shall come to an end, because the day is coming that man shall become so purified, so totally without sin that he will no longer need Christ and in that our Christ shall offer up the kingdom to the Father and the Father shall be all in all. Glory to God. And if you'd like to review this concept of the greatest age of all the ages, also known as the age of ages, we talk about that on message 49, part two. Glory to God. Hallelujah.

 

Now, we're going to go through Verse 19. It's going to be very long and very involved, and I suggest anyone listening to the message, unless you have a lot of confidence in yourself. I suggest that you stop here and you review Daniel 7:7, which is on message 71, part three. And the reason I'm suggesting that is because Verse 19 is asking Christ for the truth that is revealed in Verse 7 and the two verses are very similar. And I'm not going to -- well, we're talking about Verse 7 and Verse 19, and I'm not going to take the time to go into the depth that I went into in Verse 7. In Verse 7 is a very involved Verse. So, I’m just going to give you a few highlights of Verse 7 for those in the meeting, so that I won't lose you.

 

But I suggest even when you're reviewing the message of this meeting you might want to stop here and go into message 71, part three and just listen to Verse 7; you don’t have to listen to the whole message. OK. Let me read Verse 19 for you. Daniel saying, “Then I would know the truth,” now, he's talking to Christ now. The fourth beast that has swallowed up the three before him. The three being Adam before the fallen, his state of innocent. That was number one. The second beast was threefold spirit of man. That was the second. And then there was another part to the second beast and that was the sin-stained human soul. And then the fourth beast is Christ and he swallowed up all the other three and he's God’s glorified man; the creation of God.

 

Then Daniel says to the fourth beast to Christ, “I would know the truth about the fourth beast.” He wants to know about Christ, he wants to know about the kingdom of God. This beast which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful post teeth were of iron and his nails brass, was devoured break in pieces and stamp the residue with his feet. Glory to God. Then I would know the truth. This word know is Strong’s 3046. Hallelujah. And it means to certify, to make known, to teach, to legally assure one that something is true. Daniel wanted to be -- he wanted to know the truth, but he wanted to be assured that this was coming from God. Hallelujah.

 

“That I would know the truth.” The word truth is Strong’s 3321 and it means to be certain. He not only wanted to be certain, he wanted to be legally assured. He wanted legal assurance. And we know that everything about God is -- relates to legality. He wanted the authority of the Spirit of God upon this interpretation. Hallelujah. Glory to God. “That I would know the truth of the fourth these.” And well, we've already talked about that, that the fourth beast is Christ and then he swallowed up the other three. “The one which was diverse from all the others.” This is Strong's words of verse -- is Strong's 8133. It means to alter, to change. And Verse 7 discusses how the fourth beast is different from the other three.

 

Now, that doesn't mean that the fourth beast is different from the first one and the fourth beast is different from the second one, and the fourth beast is different from the third one. We established on when we did Verse 7 that the Scripture is looking at the first second and third beast as one. They are all man without the imparted anointing. They’re either Adam in his stage of innocence within imputed anointing. Adam fallen with no anointing at all. Or Adam in the condition that we’re in today with still an imputed anointing. Hallelujah. Glory to God.

 

So the forth beast was different than the other three together. There was only thre- -- for the intents and purposes of what I'm trying to convey to you. There were just two beasts. There was Christ and then there was all the others. And God lumps all the others into one category. So this phrase, “Diverse from all the rest,” OK, it means to alter or to change. Glory to God. I’ll just read you my note. I don't want to miss anything here. Verse 7 discusses how the forth beast is different from the other three. The first three are the original creation. The fourth is the fullness of the creation; the first and natural man within imputed anointing. The second, which is in two parts; a fallen natural man and the fourth is a spiritual and glorified man. Hallelujah.

 

Alternate translation. The first third of Daniel 7:19. “Then I asked to understand about the fourth living creature and to be assured that I was being taught God's truth about the one which is so different from the other living creatures that he appears perverted to them. That he appears perverted. And you’ll -- if you review Verse 7 you’ll find out that that word diverse means to be so different that to be appeared -- to appear to be disfigured and we know that there are people in the church today. Forget about the people in the world, there are people in the church today. When Christ appears in an individual he is so offensive to these believers that are bound with religious spirits that they usually throw them out of the church. He's perverse to them. They say he's not of God. They say his doctrine isn’t of God. They say the way he lives his life isn't of God.

 

He's an abomination to them. Jesus was an abomination unto the Pharisees. He broke every one of their ritualistic rules. Then I asked to understand about the fourth living creature and to be assured that I was being taught God's truth about the one which is so different from the other living creatures that he appears perverted to them. Christ appears perverted to the natural man. Continuing with. “He is exceeding dreadful whose teeth were of iron and his nails of brass.” Now the wording of Verse 19 is very similar to the wording of Verse 7. I'm reading my note and I told you this already. I suggest you review Verse 7 on message 71, part three. OK. I’ve told you all this. OK. Exceeding dreadful, the word exceeding is Strong's 3493. It means preeminent, excellent.

 

And I remind you that Verses 7 and 19 are the only times this word is translated exceeding. It is usually translated excellent, meaning a man manifesting the Spirit of God and we established that on part three of this series. He was exceeding dreadful. The word dreadful is Strong’s 1763. It means terrifying. And I just copied this from the other message. Now the English words terrible and strong appear in Verse 7, but they do not appear in Verse 19. “Exceeding dreadful whose teeth were of iron and his nails of brass.” These two verses are almost word for word, except the English words terrible and strong appear in Verse 7, but they do not appear in Verse 19. And the phrase in Verse 19, “And his nails of brass,” does not appear in Verse 7. So what are we saying? We have two words in Verse 7 that do not appear in 19 and those words are [?lost my place?] terrible and strong. They are in Verse 7 and not in Verse 19.

 

And in Verse 19 we have the phrase, “And his nails of brass,” and that phrase does not appear in Verse 7. What is going on? We're going to try and find out. We're going to do the phrase, “Whose teeth were of iron.” And I'm going to leave the phrase, “And his nails of brass,” to the end of this -- to the total end of Verse 19. I'm going to run through the comparisons of 7 and 19, and I'm going to put nails of brass at the very end. It’s a very involved study. OK. So, he was exceeding dreadful, he was excellent and he was terrifyingly excellent. He was so glorious that he was fearsome. Men were afraid of him. Glory to God. And his teeth were of iron. The word iron is 6523. I remind you it's a metal-ore that’s found in the earth. It typifies spiritual strength coming out of the earth.

 

And Strong’s says it corresponds to 1270, which is the implement of iron itself. It’s used to denote hardness and firmness. And he had teeth me of iron. The word teeth is Strong's 8128 and we spent a lot of time on part three of this message establishing that what God meant in Verses 7 and 19 is that he was talking about the teeth of the flesh hooks, which are used in the Levitical sacrifice. And that these Verses 7 and 19 are talking about Christ bringing the living soul into submission. And the way the Lord describes Christ bringing the living soul into submission is that he says that Christ is sacrificing the living soul. He is boiling the human soul and using the flesh hooks to stir it up in the pot and he is burning the human spirit. And we spent a long time on that, on part three of Verse 71.

 

Alternate translation. The second third of Daniel 7:19. “He” -- this is the fourth beast now. “Is gloriously terrifying. The one who has the spiritual strength necessary to boil the souls of men as a sin offering.” Glory to God. “Exceeding dreadful whose teeth were of iron.” He is gloriously terrifying, who ha- -- the one who has the spiritual strength necessary to boil the souls of men as a sin offering unto Almighty God. Gloriously terrifying typifies the terror that the living soul feels as Christ puts her underfoot. She is indeed terrified, but the outcome of being brought into submission is glorious. Everything God does is glorious. I don't think I made it clear on message 71, part three that this strength of Christ, the strength to bring the living soul to sacrifice is specifically referring to Christ which is the Son of God in the flesh. And that is the intention of the iron teeth.

 

OK. This is a spiritual strength that is underneath the earth. We are not talking about an abstract Spirit of God. We are talking about Christ, about the Son of God in the flesh overcoming. That’s what we’re talking about. Now, remember it's the flesh of the living soul that has been corrupting God’s sons since the beginning of time. God's purpose is to bring forth a man who will be able to live in the realm of appearance without sin and the only way he could do that is by keeping his own soul in submission. God's been trying for all of these thousands of millions of years to bring forth a man-child. All that's come forth today is women that have failed to keep the living soul underfoot. So this concept of the teeth being iron specifically refers to the victorious man-child being born in the flesh and putting the soul underfoot. Hallelujah. Glory to God.

 

And if you’d like to understand this a little better, this concept of God bringing forth the spiritual son that will rule his soul, you might want to review Jacob's prophecy to Jo -- Joseph, which speaks of that and that is on message -- I guess I was really sick this week, I didn't get it down. Message -- this has to be wrong. Well, it's part six and seven. If you wanted -- either if you -- if you have a Cyclopedic Index look it up yourself. If you don't and you want to contact me I'll get the number of the message for you. Glory to God. I didn't write down the number. I just put down part six and seven. Hallelujah.

 

Now, the phrase, “Nails of brass,” will be dealt with later. I told you that already. OK. Continuing with, “He devoured and break in pieces,” -- now this is the fourth beast, this is Christ. “He devoured and break in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet.” Now, I'm going through this quickly. We took a long time on part three if you want to review this. The word devoured is Strong’s 399. It means to devour or to eat and we established on part three of this message that the Lord is consuming us, but God is so glorious that when he consumes us, we still live. We’re not destroyed forever. This great era that the whole church believes in, that the whole world that knows anything about Christianity at all, knows about these flames and this vicious destruction of fire that the living God is supposed to bring upon mankind.

 

Brethren, this is the God that cons -- that burned the bush, but the bush was not consumed. And God shall burn us, brethren, we shall not be consumed. We shall live as a part of the life of Almighty God. We shall be consumed to the -- our soul life shall be consumed, but we shall live in another form. Hallelujah. This is the glorious God of all time. Everything he does including destruction is for our good.

 

OK. This is the fourth beast which devoured and break in pieces. And the words break in pieces is Strong's 1855 and it means to separate human spirit from the spirit of Satan. That's all established on part three. Where he’s breaking in pieces is the soul and the spirit. He is separating the soul and the spirit. He is separating our human spirit from Satan, from our marriage to Satan and he’s separating our also from the offspring; the carnal mind. And the fourth beast also stamped the residue with his feet. And the word residue is Strong’s 7606. And we established on part three that we’re talking about that which remains after the human soul is boiled. And what remains after the human soul is boiled? The threefold spirit of man. The threefold spirit of man, Satan, Eve and the carnal mind. Glory to God. They are being separated. Satan, Eve and the carnal mind are being separated. Glory to God.

 

And he stamped the residue with his feet. And the word feet is Strong’s 72 -- 7 -- 7271. And we found out on part three that that means pudenda, and pudenda refers to reproductive parts. Glory to God. And I remind you that the reproductive parts of the living soul -- anybody remember? Reproductive parts of the living soul? Glory to God. What? The human spirit. Amen. Yes. She's producing all kinds of blasphemy right now, because she is married to Satan. Glory to God. Hallelujah.

 

Alternate translation. Well, of course the reproductive parts of Almighty God is the human spirit also and she's joined to him. Hallelujah. The whole living soul is the reproductive parts of Almighty God. She's just often running doing her own thing right now. Glory to God. She is God's wife. The living soul is God's wife.

 

Alternate translation. The third third of Daniel Chapter 7, Verse 19. “The fourth beast, which is burning living soul separating Eve from Satan and the carnal mind, then joining himself to Eve and bringing Satan into submission to the authority of his male spiritual strength. He is putting her under feet. He is bringing her into the authority of his male spiritual strength. This is done in detail of part three of this series. OK. Now, the only phrase in Verse 19 that is not in Verse 7 is, “And his nails of brass.” So first, Lord willing I'm going to establish for you what this phrase means and then Lord willing I hope to convey an understanding to you of why two words are in Verse 7 that are not in Verse 19 and why this phrase is in Verse 19 and not in Verse 7. I hope everybody knows that nothing that God does is an accident or a coincidence. He has a reason and a purpose and a meaning behind everything.

 

OK. Going on with the phrase, “And his nails of brass.” Glory to God. The word nails is Strong's 2953 and it means fingernail, hoof or claw. [?Gesenius?] shows this word as corresponding to 2952, which means the walk with short steps like children. It's also used of women loving display. Strong’s shows this word comes from a root corresponding to 6852. Well, let me back up. To walk in short steps like children and also used in women loving display. I'm suggesting to you this is referring to the soul realm, brethren. This is referring to the soul realm. OK. Strong’s shows this word is from a root corresponding to 6852, which means to dance in a circle and I'm suggesting to you the circle of the earth. We've had many teachings on this. Man just goes round and round and round and it takes the power of God to bend him upwards. And when Jesus Christ comes and joins himself to a man he bends him upwards and he makes a spiritual man out of him. Glory to God.

 

And this word also has the same meaning as Strong’s 6856 and it speaks of scratching. From the root 5833, it means a little bird is hopping. We're talking about scratching in the earth, a little bird that hops. A living thing that has the ability to fly, it has wings, but for some reason it's just hopping. And I'm suggesting to you that this whole concept of nails is talking about an entity, a life form. The creation of God that one time had the authority to soar in the heavenlies of the Spirit of God, but that has been taken down by God and is now relegated to this soul realm. Glory to God. Hallelujah.

 

Nails of brass. And brass is Strong’s 5174. We've had this many times. It typifies the judgments of God which come by the serpent. And if you like to review that you could review message number 31, part seven and eight or messages 32, part four. Or message 38, part seven. Glory to God. Now, the Hebrew word translated nails appears to signify spiritual immaturity and spiritual child-likeness. Both of which typify the soul realm. We also know that the soul realm is the place where God judges his spiritual sons. The place also known as Hell. We are thus going to translate the Hebrew words brass and nails. The Hebrew words that are translated brass and nails. We are going to translate them to walk or live in the soul realm as opposed to flying in the realm of the spirit.

 

To be -- to exist in a realm of spiritual weakness under the judgments of God, which is the condition of the whole human race. So what am I saying? The Hebrew word translated nails and nails of brass in particular are referring to a living soul that is existing under judgment. A living soul that once soared in the realm of God’s spirit that is now living under judgment. And the Hebrew word translated nails appears only one other time in the Scripture in Daniel 4, Verse 33. Now, what I am going to do, Lord willing is -- I want to go into that verse in an attempt to impart to you God's intention of using this phrase nails of brass. I'd like to give you a better understanding of it. And we're going to read Daniel Chapter 4, Verses 19 to 33 and then I'm going to do an alternate translation on Verse 33. And we’re going to plug that alternate translation into Verse 19 of Daniel 7. Hallelujah.

 

Well, we're not going to plug in the whole of Verse 33, but we’re going to plug in the alternate translation of nails of brass that is in Daniel 4:33. We're going to use it in Daniel 7:19. Glory to God. OK. Daniel Chapter 4, starting with Verse 19. “Then Daniel whose name was Belshazzar was astonished for one hour and his thoughts troubled them. The king spake and said Belshazzar let not the dream or the interpretation thereof trouble thee.” Now, this was another dream, not the one we're talking about. “Belshazzar answered and said, my Lord, the dream be to them that hate thee and the interpretation thereof to thine enemies. The tree that thou soused, which grew and was strong, whose height reached into the heaven and the site thereof to all the earth, whose leaves were fair and the fruit thereof much and in it was meat for all under which the beast of the field dwelt.”

 

“And upon whose branches the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, that tree is you, oh king. Thou art grown and become strong for thy greatness is grown and reacheth into heaven and thy dominion to the end of the earth. And whereas they king saw a watcher and a holy one coming down from heaven and saying, Hue the tree down and destroy it, yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass in the tender grass of the field and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field till seven times pass over him. This is the interpretation, oh king, and this is the decree of the Most High which is come upon my Lord, the king.”

 

Now, in King I don't think I said it. King Nebuchadnezzar typifies the Adam before his fall. And this is the judgment, if you can't receive it pray about it. If you can't receive it put it on the shelf, but I declare to you the judgment that was declared upon King Nebuchadnezzar is the judgment that was declared upon the living soul of which we are all a part. OK. Verse 25, “And they shall drive thee from men and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field.” Adam who was in his glory was going to become like an animal. “And they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen and they shall wet thee with the dew of heaven and seven times shall pass over thee till thou know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men and giveth it to whomsoever he will.” Adam is going to be in this humiliated condition until he gets a revelation that God is God. Look around the world it doesn't look very encouraging, but God's going to do it anyway.

 

Verse 26. “And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots, thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee.” God's going to restore it. “After that thou shall have known that the heavens do rule.” After Adam every member of him is convinced that God is in control. He's going to be restored back up to this realms of the heavenlies. Verse 27, “Wherefore oh king, let my counsel be acceptable unto the and break off thy sins by righteousness and thine iniquities by showing mercy to the poor. If it may be a lengthening of thy tranquility.” All this came upon the King Nebuchadnezzar. Now, if you want to take some counsel from that, brethren, if you have great curses on your life and great travail and great pain show mercy to the poor and seek God for his righteousness. That’s your only help.

 

Verse 29. “And at the end of 12 months, and he walked in the Palace of the kingdom of Babylon. The king spake and said is not this great Babylon that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power and the honor of my Majesty?” Even after he had a dream that was interpreted for him. Nebuchadnezzar was still lifted up in pride. The living soul, mankind across the face of the earth, it has the Bible. It has its profits, it has its men of God and he still thinks that he's done this big thing. He thinks that man has evolved from fishes and lizards and monkeys. He thinks that everything that's in its order is an accident. He thinks the trees just happened to appear. And he really thinks he's going to save himself in this world from the destruction that has been pronounced by Almighty God. May God have mercy on our souls.

 

31. “And while the word was still in the king's mouth there fell a voice from heaven saying, Oh King Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken. The kingdom is departed from thee and Adam left his age of innocence and became the fallen Adam that we see today. This was Adam's sin; pride. Glory to God. He didn’t acknowledge that God made him what he was. He thought he was going to ascend to the heaven and rise above the clouds of Almighty God as we hear in another Scripture. Verse 32, “This is your judgment Adam, and they shall drive thee from men and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. They shall make thee to eat grass as oxen and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men and giveth it to whom so ever he will.”

 

Now, brethren, this is really important. I'm telling you that this is Adam's sin and is Adam's sin, but it’s also your personal sin. Brethren, if there's any problem in your life at all. If there's any hardship, if there’s destruction upon your children. Any -- if there’s sickness, if there's financial problems, brethren, square root your sin and somewhere along the line you have denied that God is in control of this entire planet including your life. Hear the word of the Lord. These judgments shall abide upon you until you acknowledge that God rules in the heavens. And I've got a flash for you, brethren. You might be a Christian, you might have the Holy Spirit and if you're out there using the power of God like some backstreet witch, you have not acknowledged that God rules in the heavens or in your life.

 

If you're out there at war with the demons in your own strength, because you think God said occupy until he comes, brethren, destruction is upon you until you acknowledge that God rules in the heavens. And that you are his servant, he is not your lackey. May God have mercy on your soul. If you believe that way. Get ready. Judgments already upon you. The Lord is already teaching you the error of your pride.

 

Verse 33, this is the one we’re going to do an alternate translation on. “In that same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar. And he was driven from men and did eat grass as oxen and his body was wet with the dew of heaven until his hairs were grown like eagle’s feathers and his nails like birds claws.” So, right off the bat we see to have nails like birds claws is a condition of the fallen natural man. Now, how in the world or why in the world is a condition of the fallen natural man described as a part of the fourth beast, which is the glorified Christ. Now, remember Verse 19 is describing the fourth beast and all of a sudden there's a change from Verse 7 and we get the phrase that this fourth beast which is Christ has nails like birds claws which we just found out in Daniel 4:33 is a judgment that's upon the fallen natural man.

 

Well, we have a mystery here and I hope that those of you that have studied with this ministry for any length of time know that whenever there is an apparent contradiction in the Scripture, the problem is your carnal mind. God does not contradict himself. He does not make mistakes. There are no errors in the Scripture. You simply don't understand. So, let's find out what God is saying here.

 

We are going to do an alternate translation on Daniel Chapter 4, Verse 33. “In the same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar and he was driven from men and did eat grass like oxen. And his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hairs were grown like eagle’s feathers and his nails like bird’s claws.” OK. Glory to God. We’re going to start with that he was driven from men. This word driven is Strong’s 2957. It only appears twice in Strong's translated driven and it means to expel. It means to expel. And the phrase is he was driven from men. This word men is Strong's 606 and it means mortal man. Well, that confused me when I did that. And I'm suggesting to you that the Scripture implies that Adam in his condition of innocence is called mortal man.

 

Now, Adam in his condition of innocence he was a mortal man. He just had an imputed anointing. So, what are we saying? We’re saying that Adam that was expelled from men and became the fallen Adam which we are. God doesn’t even see us a man, he sees us nearly brute beasts. The man that God created was glorious and God called him Adam. When Adam fell, God doesn't even call a fallen man man [sic], he calls him beast. He calls him beast, brethren, the beast of Revelation is fallen man. Leviathan is fallen man. God doesn't call him man, he calls him animal. Glory to God. Did you ever see a man going crazy? Ripping things up, smashing things and people will say, look at that man what an animal.

 

I have a flash for you, brethren. The most sophisticated of you, the most cultured of you, if you don't have the spirit of God, though you might bathe every day, go to every doctor, get your teeth cleaned, use perfume, mouthwash and underarm deodorant God perceives you as an animal and a beast. Glory to God. So, he, the innocent Adam that was glorious was driven from man. He was no longer men. He became an animal and in that condition he did eat grass as an oxen.

 

Well, let me give you an alternate translation of the first third of Daniel Chapter 4, Verse 33. The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar and he was driven from men. God's judgment upon Nebuchadnezzar came to pass in the same time period that it was pronounced and he was driven out of the spiritual place where he was living as a man and he became an animal. Continuing with, “And he did eat grass as oxen and his body was wet with the dew of heaven.” This word eat is Strong's 2939. It is only translated eat twice. It's not the typical translated eat and it means to taste. To make to feed. It means -- it's from -- it's corresponding to 2938, which is the infinitive, which means to try the flavor of. To taste daintily. To try the flavor of. To eat a little bit. And it means to perceive by the taste or flavor. Perceive what the substance is.

 

If you look at something and you can't recognize it, you’ll taste just a little bit to see if you could recognize the taste. Well, this word also has a spiritual interpretation and it means to perceive mentally, to experience. When you perceive mentally you experience something. I want to give you an example of this word being translated that way. Proverbs 31:18, “Speaking about the godly woman says, she perceiveth,” that's the word translated eat. “She perceiveth that her merchandise is good, her candle goeth it not out by night.” Now, what does this word merchandise mean? It’s Strong’s 5504 and it’s used of any gain. And strangely enough if you may recall we have two messages, which we did -- which we spoke about the earth being divided in three different stages and one of those stages was the earth being divided into male and female whereby they started having sexual intercourse. This is the same word.

 

So what are we saying? This word merchandise means to have intercourse. This godly woman, she perceiveth, she eateth, she tasteth that her intercourse is good. She's having intercourse with the Spirit of God, brethren. Instead of with the living soul and the fruit that is produced in her lifetime is the proof of it. So, this is -- now [?Gesenius?] translates Proverbs 31:18 as follows. “For her gain or for wisdom's gain is better than that of silver. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good, for wisdom's gain is better than that of silver.” So the whole point here is, I don't want to get lost, the whole point is that this word to eat can and is used to describe a mental experience. And I'm suggesting to you that it talk -- it’s talking about spiritual copulation.

 

And I have one more example for you. Psalms 34:8 says, “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good.” That word taste is the same word translated eat. And, “Oh taste and see that the Lord is good. Copulate with the Lord and see how good he is. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord.” OK. So we’re talking about and did eat grass as oxen. What we're saying is that he copulated with the grass. Well, what does that mean? Grass is Strong's 6211 and if you recall we did a series on grass. It’s -- if you want to review this on message 33, part three. This word grass 6211 is the mature kind of grass which is glistening with the life of God and I'm suggesting to you that this phrase, and did eat grass as oxen, means that the fallen living soul continued in some measure to have a form of intercourse with God, but that form of intercourse was as a brute beast. So, apparently there's a big difference between having intercourse as God when you're in right standing with him and having intercourse with God when you are a brute beast.

 

So, this phrase is indicating that God has never abandoned man, but continued to copulate with him or communicate with him as a brute beast. And it’s not clear in the Scripture and as a matter fact this thought never occurred to me until right now. I believe the Lord has just spoken to me and told me that the way the Spirit of God copulates or interacts with brute beasts is in the form of judgment. God just told me that now. When you're in right standing and you copulate with God blessings are poured out upon you. When you are a brute beast and in utter darkness and you can't tell good from evil, God still interacts with you in the form of judgment. Thank you Lord for that word. Hallelujah.

 

OK. So he did eat grass as oxen and the word oxen, glory to God, is Strong's 8450. It's a cust- -- it's a castrated bull, and I'm suggesting to you that it’s referring to a man that has lost his spiritual power. This bull which was a -- a bull is a raging wild powerful animal, but this is a castrated bull. A man that has lost his spiritual power and is now nothing more than a brute beast. And the form is in the plural, because Adam is in many members and he did copulate with the Spirit of God. Or the Lord did copulate with him in the form of judgment, interact with him in the form of judgment and his body was wet with the dew of heaven. Now, this word body is Strong's 1655 and it's the same word used in Daniel 7:11, which you could review on message 71, part 4.

 

And it doesn't mean body at all. It comes from the idea of hard rain and on that message we translate this word spiritual power. We translate this word spiritual power. And his body -- and his spiritual power was wet with the dew of heaven. Well, what does that mean? The word wet is Strong’s 6647 and it means to wet, to dip, to die. And the idea is to change the color of something or to chan- -- and to change the color means to change the character of. So what are we saying here? And his spiritual power, the nature of his spiritual power was changed. The color of it was changed. The nature of it was changed with or because of the dew of heaven. Glory to God.

 

Oh, I have a comment here for you. If you would like to review a study on this concept of having one’s spiritual nature changed, being expressed by a color you might want to review message 32, part one, which teaches that the Scarlet colored beast of Revelation 17 is man in the realm of appearance, which has been dyed red; the color of the living soul. The dyeing of his nature indicates possession by the living soul instead of possession by Christ, which is indica- -- because when the living souls possessed by Christ it's indicated by the white of righteousness. Glory to God.

 

Now, I know this is a very long message. I don't know if I want to put this in here. I'm not going to put this in. OK. “And he did eat grass as oxen and his body was wet with the dew of heaven. And his spiritual power, the nature of his spiritual power was changed, because of the dew from heaven.” And this word dew is Strong’s 2920 and it's a covering for vegetation. It's from 2926. It means to cover over, to plate, to lay beams upon. And I'm suggesting to you that the Lord covered over or layered over the living soul. And if you like to review the living soul being jailed in [?ledefa?] you can do that on message -- by reviewing message number eight.

 

The dew of heaven. Heaven is Strong's 8065. I ask you to note that. The word heaven is singular and we know there is more than one heaven. And it’s the word for heaven, but I'm suggesting to you it's the spiritual realm of the soul, because of the context of the entire verse which is judgment. So, if the spiritual power was covered over, the spiritual power of the Adam that was soaring in the realm of the spirit was covered over by the spiritual power of the realm of the soul got put him in jail.

 

Alternate translation. The second third of Daniel Chapter 4, Verse 33. “And this fallen living soul could only experience God as a helpless brute through judgment. And his spiritual authority was covered over and made subject to the spiritual authority of the living soul that is Satan.” Adam fell and he became subject to Satan and his authority. Satan was made the prince of the power of the heir. Continuing with. “Till his hairs were grown like eagle’s feathers and his nails like birds claws.” This word hairs is Strong's 8177 and it's the same Hebrew word used in Da -- Daniel 7:9 and it typifies -- the word hairs typifies spirit. The word is plural, because of the many members of the living soul. Each one having a human spirit.

 

“Till his human spirits were grown like eagle’s feathers.” This word grown is Strong's 7236. It's only translated grown three times in Strong’s and it means to increase. “Until the spirits of the many members of the living soul were increased like eagle’s feathers.” Now, this word fathers is not in the original Hebrew. They were increased like eagles. The word eagles is Strong's 5403. You can review eagles on message 23 if you like. And eagles typify the sons of God. Till the spirits -- the human spirits of the many members of the living soul were increased to sons of God or to spiritual men, or until Christ appeared in the human spirits of the many members of the living soul. This judgment, brethren, is only until Christ appears in the human spirits of the living soul. It is not forever. It is until. God delivers us. Glory to God. Hallelujah.

 

The implication here is that the living soul shall remain in her fallen condition until her many spirits or many human spirits have increased from being in a fallen condition that the Scripture describes as red worms. To the spiritual maturity of the sons of God. And if you have never heard this before or if you would like to review the reality that this Scripture describes fallen man as red worms, you can review that on message 31, parts three and four. “Till his hairs were grown like eagles and his nails like birds claws.” We finally got down to his nails like birds claws. This wo- -- English word claws is not in the Hebrew. So we’re dealing with the phrase and his nails like birds. And this word nails is Strong's 2953. We already talked about that.

 

I’ll review it. It means a fingernail, a hook or a claw and it talks about femaleness existing on the soul realm, dancing in the circle of the soul realm. And it’s talking about a bird where birds have the ability to fly, but these birds are hopping. We’re talking about someone that once had the power to fly or dwell in the Spirit of God and is now a prisoner in this wicked soul realm which is really Hell. So, we're talking about the nails, the bird’s nails. We're talking about fallen man in his state of bondage in this soul realm. Glory to God. Hallelujah. And I put the question to you again. How could, if this is what nails, claws means how could this appear in the description of the fourth beast, which is Christ? OK. I just want to finish up here.

 

Alternate translation. The third third of Daniel 4, Chapter 33. “Until the fallen living soul, he's going to stay in this condition until he became like one who used to have spiritual power, but has fallen down to an existence on the soul realm. Glory to God. Let me just look at my -- Hallelujah. “Until he became like one who used to have spiritual power, but has fallen down to an existence on the soul realm and until the spirits, the many human spirits of the many-membered living soul mature into Christ.” He's going to stay here until. Until. Glory to God. OK. Now, please note that the Scripture states maturity in Christ first. Until his hairs were grown like eagles feathers and the fall of the soul realm second. He's going to stay in that condition. Glory to God. Hallelujah. He’s going to stay in that condition. In the condition of being a fallen living soul.

 

Now, this sequence makes no sense in the realm of time saying that maturity in Christ comes first and then the fallen Adam comes second. That makes no sense at all. So, all that I could say to you is that we have another situation here where the Scripture sees it as a mirror image. So we have to reverse it, because what comes second for us is really coming first for the realm of the spirit.

 

So, in the alternate translation I am going to reverse the order and I'm going to say that the fall of man comes first and the restoration, the maturation in Christ and the restoration comes second. OK. This is a mirror image realm.

 

Alternate translation. Daniel Chapter 4, Verse 33. “Judgment -- God's judgment upon Nebuchadnezzar or the living soul came to pass in the same time period that it was pronounced and he” -- and that what time period is that? The time period before Christ appeared. “And he was driven out of the spiritual place where he was living as a man and could only experience God as a helpless brute beast. And his spiritual authority was covered over and made subject to the spiritual authority of the living soul until, until he was in bondage until he became like one who used to have spiritual power, but had fallen down to an existence on the soul realm.” And until the spirits of the many-membered living soul mature into Christ.

 

Do you hear this? God puts it in the Scripture like its five minutes apart. And it’s been thousands and thousands of years. Let me give you this again. God's judgment upon Nebuchadnezzar came to pass in the same time period that it was pronounced and he was driven out of the spiritual place where he was living as a man. And he could only experience God as a helpless brute beast. And his spiritual authority was covered over and made subject to the spiritual authority of the living soul until he became like one who used to have spiritual power, but have fallen down to an existence on the soul realm. What is this talking about? Brethren, I remind you about our series number 60, parts 1 to 3, where we talk about the fall of man after the flood.

 

Brethren, it took a long time. From the time the pre- -- the judgment was pronounced upon man for him to descend to the condition of fallen man. If I'm not mistaken it took four or five generations. We have this on this series. And those four or five generations, these men were living close to a 1,000 years. I suggest to you it took 4 to 5,000 years at least for men after the judgment was pronounced for him to fall into the condition where he was existing on the soul realm without spiritual power. And man has been in this condition for thousands of years and then we leave the writ -- the last phrase.

 

He's going to be covered over by Satan's power until the spirit of the many-membered -- the human spirits of the many-membered living soul shall mature into Christ. There's two phases to God's judgment, brethren. First he has to fall -- man has to fall all the way down to becoming a brute beast and then Christ has to appear in him. And God considers all this part of the judgment. The judgment that brings you low and the judgment that raises you up. Can you see this in your own life? I can see it in mine. I can remember the years of my life that God was bringing me down to brute beast. And after he brought me down to brute beast, after I hit bottom, brethren, he started moving to form Christ in me. It's happening in the individual and it’s happening on the level of the entire living soul. Glory to God.

 

OK. Now -- Hallelujah. Where were we? I said all that to say this. I'm going to give you an alternate translation of Daniel Chapter 7, Verse 19 and when we come to the phrase of nails of brass I'm going to include that in the translation. And after I read you this alternate translation I hope to impart to you an explanation as to what fallen man is doing in the midst of the fourth beast which is Christ.

 

Alternate translation. Dan -- Chapter 7, Verse 19. “Then I asked to understand about the fourth living creature and to be assured that I was being taught God's truth about the one which is so different from the other living creatures that he appears perverted to them. He is gloriously terrifying. The one who has the spiritual strength necessary to boil the souls of men as a sin offering and he is like one who used to have spiritual power, but had fallen down to an existence on the soul realm. Nevertheless, he is the one which is burning the living soul. Separating Eve from Satan and the carnal mind and then joining himself to Eve and bringing Satan into submission to the authority of his male spiritual strength.” This verse is saying the fourth beast is glorious. He looks like one who fell from heaven in disgrace, but nevertheless he is now revealing all of the spiritual power and glory of God. Because why? Because he has been redeemed. Glory to God. And he's in there and fallen man is a part of the fourth beast. This is another witness to the fact that the fourth beast has swallowed up the other three and that they are living within the fourth beast which is Christ. Hallelujah.

 

OK. We're almost done. Now, let's see what we've got here. Daniel 7:19 reads the same as Daniel 7:7 with four exceptions. In describing the fourth beast in Verse 19, the words terrible and strong which are used in Verse 7 are omitted. The English word great appears before the phrase iron teeth in Verse 7, but is not included in Verse 19. Number three; in describing the fourth beast in Verse 19, the words nails of brass which do not appear in Verse 7 are included and the fourth difference is that the phrase diverse from all the rest appears at the beginning of Verse 7, but at the end of Verse 19. Hallelujah.

 

OK. The three words describing the greatness and glory of the fourth beast even Christ. Those words being terrible, which means strong Almighty. Strong which means powerful and huge referring to the iron teeth. Those are three words describing the greatness of Christ. Huge meaning great in character have been omitted from Verse 19 and replaced by a verse which shows that fallen man has been absorbed by Christ. I believe the two versus are meant to state the same message expressed in two different ways. And I therefore suggest to you that the significance of this variation in words is to demonstrate that the fallen living soul typified by the nails of brass after being consumed by Christ has become great in character, powerfully strong and mighty.

 

So, we have Verse 7 simply saying great, mighty and powerful and Verse 19 we see a deeper view into the fourth beast and we see that this great mighty and powerful beast includes the redeemed soul that was fallen. So, both verses mean the same thing and they -- but God expresses it in two different ways making two different points, but they both mean the same thing. Glory to God. And with regard to the phrase diverse from all the others being at the beginning of Verse 7 and at the end of Verse 19, I suggest to you that Verse 7 is coming forth from the realm of the spirit. Remember Daniel was opened and he was receiving a communications directly from God and that phrase came at the beginning of the verse. But in Verse 19 its Daniel in his humanity saying to Christ tell me about this fourth beast. And because Daniel is in the soul realm he sees it from the opposite end. And we've had that several times in this -- message. Glory to God.

 

Recap. Daniel Chapter 7, Verse 15 to 19. “I, Daniel, was made holy in the spirit, which is in the midst of my soul. Even my human spirit and spiritual communications from the Lord were thrust into me. I approached the completed creation of God, which is the fourth beast, even Christ and ardently asked to know what the vision really meant. So Christ explained it to me and assured me that the vision was of God. These wonderful living creatures which have matured to their full spiritual potential and increased to the number of souls and bodies that complete the living soul are human bodies that complete the living -- are human bodies that complete the living soul” -- I'm sorry. Let me start that over.

 

“These wonderful living creatures which have matured to their full spiritual potential and increased to the number of souls and bodies that complete the living soul are human beings which have ascended to the throne of Jesus Christ and become spiritual men. They shall stand up in the earth -- in the authority of Jesus Christ and rule the earth of their souls. And indeed the men who are joined in their minds to Jesus Christ have taken authority over their own souls and become sinless. They shall enter into the kingdom of God, which is the mind of Christ and they shall be joined to the mind of Christ for an indefinite period of time, even for the time period or age which shall be the greatest of all ages.”

 

“Then I asked to understand about the fourth living creature and to be assured that I was being taught God's truth about the one which is so different from the other living creatures that he appears perverted to them. He is gloriously terrifying. The one who has the spiritual strength necessary to boil the souls of men as a sin offering and he is like one who used to have spiritual power, but had fallen down to an existence on the soul realm. Nevertheless, he is the one which is burning the living soul separating Eve from Satan and the carnal mind and then joining himself to Eve and bringing Satan into submission to the authority of his male spiritual strength.” Glory to God. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
