OK, we’re on Chapter 12 of the book of Revelation. Glory to God. But before we start, I’d like to read you the recap of the alternate translations from Chapter 11, Verses 17 to 19 from last week. “Saying we are grateful for receiving,” -- These are the 24 elders, I believe. Let me just get that straight for the message. These are the 24 elders. “Saying we are grateful for receiving life, oh Lord God Almighty, who lives now as the Holy Spirit, who lived as Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and who shall live as Christ Jesus because you, Jesus Christ, have laid hold of your miracle-working power and have established a new base of power in the Earth, even the soul life of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the heathen were enraged that Jesus Christ had established a new base of spiritual power in the Earth, and their violent passions vibrated forth from their minds to make war against the Christ, and the time set to discern the difference between Adam and Christ and to separate them into different categories arrived, and the time that men, both little known and well known, who have spoken your word faithfully under the imputed anointing and those with the imparted anointing and those members of Jacob which turn away from their sins shall receive the reward of my spirit and my word, and the time that you should restore the corrupt mind and morals of the fallen living soul back to the righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ has arrived.”
OK, and now up to Verse 19 -- “And one at a time, the many-membered body of Christ performed the function they were created for, even to reproduce the image of Jesus Christ, and he appeared in his many-membered body, and there were spiritual communications between the Lord Jesus Christ and the minds of his many-membered body, and the sons of God heard the word of the Lord and the word of the Spirit was communicated to the souls or minds of men, and the sons of God pierced through into the realm of appearance, and they appeared as mighty spiritual beings which had brought the criminal spirit of their Adamic minds, even Satan, into submission, and Satan was the spiritual skeleton around which the spirit of God was formed, and the Spirit of God appeared in the realm of appearance.
Now we’ve been teaching here for almost 2 years, and there’s probably a lot of doctrine that you haven’t heard, so I’ll take questions and answers at the end if you want to, you know, make any record, OK?
OK, we’re starting in Chapter 12, Verse 1. “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her head, a crown of 12 stars.” Now, to date, through the end of Chapter 11, we found out that the sons of God have appeared in the realm of appearance, and now in chap- -- starting with chapter 12, the scripture begins to paint a picture of the spiritual condition of the balance of the living soul as it appears at their appearing, and the conflict of the ages, which is in reality the swallowing up of the living soul by Jesus Christ begins, so we have this small company of men that have become spiritual men and have been raised up to full stature, and because of that, we see this panorama of the sun-clad woman, which is the balance of the members of the living soul.
Now, I don’t believe that at this point, every member of the living soul is included in the sun-clad woman, but the way the Lord set it up in the scriptures, we all know he looks at everything as if it’s completed. He knows that the whole living soul is going to be saved, so he says “I saw a woman,” and we know that the soul is female. I saw a woman. I saw the living soul, and this is what she looks like, and each member of the living soul as he draws them gets swallowed up into this company of members of the living soul whose spiritual life is in the correct moral order. We’ve talked a lot about the moral order, that before Adam fell, he was not dying. He was innocent because he was in the correct moral order, and when he fell, Satan came up out of his place and the moral order of our spiritual being was reversed, and that is why man is dying. The equivalent in the natural would be of a baby being born with his heart on the outside of his body. The human race cannot live with Satan ruling. We must die, and we are indeed dying unless the life of Christ has entered into us, and what Jesus is doing is restoring us to the correct moral order with Jesus Christ as our head and our ruling force. Glory to God.
And Satan shall be brought into a position of servitude. His function is that he gives form to the creation as it appears. We know that God is a spirit. He has no form and shape, and the Lord has formed a creation that will give him form, and he said that he will wrap himself in darkness. The function of -- or at least one of the functions of Satan or the function of Satan is to be the form -- we call it the spiritual skeleton that is going to give a shape to the Spirit of God. Just like this liquid would have no shape. The glass is forming the liquid, and Satan is the spiritual skeleton of the creation that God has formed to give a shape and a form to his spirit.
OK, “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven.” The word appeared, we’ve had that so many times. I haven’t gone into too much detail because we’ve gone through 11 chapters, and a lot of these words are repeated. This word appeared is Strong’s 3700, and it clearly states if you study it in Strong’s -- It clearly states to -- it refers to spiritual sight.
And the word great, we’ve had that several times. It’s from the Greek word mega, and it means mighty. It’s talking about powerful. It’s large with regard to power, and it also can mean just plain big.
And the word wonder is Strong’s 4592. It means a supernatural sign. Now the Hebrew equi- -- the Hebrew equivalent of this word, wonder, is Strong’s 226, and it’s translated sign, and Strong’s says it is used in the sense of appearing. It’s a signal, a flag, a beacon, or a monument or evidence, and it’s the same word that appears in Isaiah 7:14. “Therefore, the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son and shall call his name Emanuel.” That Hebrew word, sign, is the equivalent of the Greek word that’s translated wonder, and I point out to you that Isaiah said “Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign.” And we’re told in Revelation 12, “There was a great sign in the heavens.” The heavens typifying the spiritual realm of God.
And I just want to declare to you -- there’s two points I want to make here -- I want to remind you that Jesus Christ of Nazareth was the first member of the living soul to be glorified. He is the head of the body. He has many brethren, and there are many brethren coming into glory that are going to go through the same process that he has gone through and who shall be glorified, so when Mary -- when the virgin Mary conceived, because the Holy Spirit hovered over her, that was just the first member of the living soul in whom this prophecy was fulfilled. Behold, I shall give you a sign. Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son. And I declare to you that the Lord has a virgin, brethren, a virgin of whom Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the head. There’s a church, a body of Christ, that in this hour is filthy, that the Lord Jesus Christ has the power to restore to spiritual virginity, and she shall conceive even with the son of the Lord Jesus Christ, Christ Jesus. Hallelujah.
And there was a sign in heaven, a great wonder, a woman, the whole living soul shall be restored to virginity and shall conceive and shall bear a son, Christ Jesus, the 42nd generation. Glory to God.
And the second point that I want to point out to you is that the appearance of Christ in you and in me is in two stages. We know that it’s in two stages. It was in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and now it’s going to be in Christ Jesus, but in each and every one of us, the appearance of Christ is in two -- or shall be in two stages, and I read this verse to you again, Isaiah 7:14. “Behold, a virgin shall conceive” -- point one -- “and bear a son” -- point two, and we’ve been preaching for months in this ministry now that you have to birth Christ and then he has to appear in you, and that was a poor choice of words on my part, but the Lord didn’t correct me until now.
We must conceive Christ, and then he must be birthed or appear in us. We must conceive him. We must conceive him, and where are we conceiving him? Are we conceiving him in our eyes, in our ears, or in our arms? Where are we conceiving the son of God? Does anybody know? In our mind. Amen. He’s being conceived in our mind, and more specifically, in the human spirit.
It’s just like you would take a natural woman and say, sister, you’re capable of bearing a child, and I know that you’re going to conceive in your ovaries. No, you cannot bring forth a child from your ovaries. The child must be conceived in the wo- -- well, the actual conception takes place in the fallopian tubes and it roots in the womb, and the spiritual womb is the human spirit, and that is where the fertilization is taking place.
If you have received the Holy Spirit, you have received the Holy Spirit of promise, which is the vehicle that has the power to bring forth Christ in you, in your person, and what his job is, is to fertilize your human spirit so that you can conceive, and from the moment you conceive, this Christ in utero that is in you is so powerful that he already starts working wonders and miracles in your life, but he’s not supposed to stay there. He’s supposed to continue to grow until he reaches full stature, at which point he shall appear in you or he shall be birthed in you, the equivalent of a woman conceiving a child and 9 months later giving birth to that child, but because we’re talking about spiritual things and because Jesus Christ is the Son of God, our Lord and Savior, from the moment of his conception, he has power that can be imparted to you that is not in the sphere of influence of the Holy Spirit. He can do things for you and through you that the Holy Spirit before your human spirit is fertilized cannot do. From the moment you have conceived, you have moved into a new realm of spiritual development. Hallelujah.
OK. Did I -- Does anybody have a question on that? Did I make that clear? The appearance of Christ in the individual is in two stages. You -- actually, it’s in three stages -- well, you have to receive the Holy Spirit. You cannot conceive without the Holy Spirit. He’s the -- He’s the sperm, OK? Then you conceive, and then you give birth. Hallelujah.
OK, so the phrase that we’re dealing with is -- “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven.” And before I gave you the alternate translation on that phrase, I just want to go a little bit ahead.
The next phrase is “A woman clothed with the sun, and that word woman is Strong’s 1135. Thayer’s says that it’s a woman of any age whether a virgin, married, or a widow, and I declare to you that this is the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy and that every manifestation, every fulfillment of the prophecies of messiah that are in Jesus Christ, that people say were satisfied in Jesus Christ, I declare to you they were satisfied in him but they shall be satisfied and fulfilled in the fullness of his body. It’s not over yet, brethren. Just like when you give birth to a natural child, first the head comes out and then you wait for the neck and the arms and the torso and the legs. The rest of the body is coming. It’s sure following the head, but it doesn’t come out at the same time as the head, and I declare to you that every prophecy that was fulfilled in Jesus Christ shall be fulfilled in Christ Jesus.
And this is an Alternate Translation of the first third of Revelation 12:1. “And a supernatural evidence of God’s ability to reproduce his image in the hearts of men was seen in the realm of God’s spirit.” Heaven is the realm of God’s spirit. And a supernatural evidence, a wonder, of God’s -- and what is this wonder? It was in evidence of God’s ability to reproduce his image in the hearts of men. That’s what the supernatural wonder was. It was a sign. And behold, a virgin shall conceive, and it’s happening in heaven in the superna- -- in the spiritual realm of God, which has now been birthed into the human spirits of men, because when the Holy Spirit joins with your human spirit and Christ is formed there, your spirit is now Christ, and the spiritual realm of God has now become a part of your spiritual being. Hallelujah.
OK. I just want to give you some witnesses on this. The first stage of this supernatural evidence is the vehicle which will fertilize the human spirit. The first stage of this wonder, of this sign, it’s the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 1, Verses 13 and 14. This is Paul speaking to the Ephesians. “You trusted us. After that, you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise. Brethren, the Holy Spirit, if you received it, that’s not the end of it. All you’ve gotten is the promise, the vehicle that’s going to bring forth the life of Christ in your life.
Verse 14. “Which is” -- the Holy Spirit -- “which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.” The Holy Spirit is the earnest -- that means the down payment of our inheritance, and what is our inheritance? It’s eternal life in Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit is the down payment, it’s the promise. It says here’s a taste of what’s waiting for you until the redemption of the purchased possession. Who remembers what the purchased possession is? What’s being purchased back? Anybody? It’s our soul, right. The living soul. The living soul is being purchased back, and until that is completed, we have a down payment. There’s a binder on us saying you’re mine, and it’s the Holy Spirit. Glory to God.
OK. Continuing with “A woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet.” I’m going to talk about the phrase the moon under her feet first. This is pretty simple. We’ve talked about this a lot over the last few months. The moon typifies the soul realm, and I remind you that there’s a scripture in Genesis where Joseph had a dream that the son and the moon and the stars bow down to him, and in that dream, the moon typified his mother, and we also know that there is a scripture in Job -- I didn’t look it up again, but if anyone wants it, I could get it for you. There’s a scripture in Job where Job teaches that the Earth is the mother of all men. The Earth is the mother of all men, and the Earth typifies the soul. Glory to God. So the moon -- what I said was the moon in Joseph’s dream typified the mother, and in the book of Job, we’re told that the Earth is the mother of all men, so I’m saying the Earth typifies the moon.
Does anyone know who our father is? Who is the father of the Adamic soul? Who is Adam’s father? Who was Adam a son of? He’s a son of God. Adam is a son of God. We’re told that in the -- one of the gospels. Adam is the son of God. This whole living soul is made out of the substance of Almighty God. That’s why every man is worth redeeming. There is no one that’s not redeemable. Why? Because the very life substance that we’re made out of is the son of God. However, he has been lowered into this realm, and he’s in a fallen condition, but that which we are made out of is the son of God, so our father is the Spirit of God, the substance of God, and our mother is the Earth. The son of God was joined to the intelligence in the Earth. Remember? Anybody remember his name? Who was the intelligence in the Earth? Satan. The son of God was joined to the intelligence in the Earth. The son of God that was spirit that had no form or shape was joined to the Earth because God is forming a creation whereby this spirit shall be seen. He put it together with a bunch of mud.
And if you’re double-minded. If you have the Spirit of God, and if you’re tormented by ungodly thoughts, I declare to you that your unconscious mind is named Satan, and the reason you’ve got a problem is that the intelligence that existed in the Earth that’s giving form to this creation is your unconscious mind, and if you have received Christ, they’re at war with one another, and that’s why you’re double-minded, and that’s why there’s conflict in your mind. And if he’s tormenting you, brethren, he’s not dead. He’s dead for Jesus Christ of Nazareth, but so long as he’s alive in your mind, he’s still alive. That crucifixion has to be appropriated and take place in the mind of every human being on the face of the Earth. It has to happen to everybody.
So the moon typifies the mother. The living soul is our mother, and our father is the son of God, and we are? Anybody? We are? Christ. We are Christ. We are the offspring of the Spirit of God and the living soul. Jesus Christ walked up and down the streets of Jerusalem, and one day he said I am the son of man, and the next day, he said I am the son of God, and the Pharisees said the man doesn’t even know who he is the son of. Well, he is the son of the living soul, and he is the son of Almighty God. The living soul is his mother, and Almighty God is his father. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
OK, so the moon typifies the living soul, and the phrase that it’s under her feet means that it’s in submission to. We’ve talked about that a lot. We know Paul said in one place that he promised that Satan shall be bruised under your feet. It merely -- this expression of putting something under your feet merely means that you will have authority over it, so the fact that the moon was under her feet means that now that Christ is ruling and reigning in her mind, her un- -- the ungodly thoughts that come from the Adamic soul, which is ruled by Satan, are under her feet. She doesn’t have to listen to them. Satan’s screaming his head off, but we don’t have to listen. When we have Christ, we have power to not do what he says. If you don’t have Christ, you’re virtually subject to anything he tells you to do. There’s no power in your life.
OK, going on. The phrase that we’re dealing with is -- “A woman clothed with the sun,” and I told you before the word woman is a woman of any age, whether a virgin, married, or a widow, and this word clothed is Strong’s 4016. We’ve studied here. There are two words in Strong’s concordance that are translated clothed. One refers to putting on a garment that you can remove again, like our regular clothing, and the other word means to be clothed with something that you become one with. For example, our skin. We are clothed in skin. We are a spiritual being that is clothed in skin, and if we try to separate our skin from our spiritual being, this body and this soul will die. So the word that’s translated clothed here is the word that means you can remove the clothing that you put on, and I suggest to you that it is the imputed anointing. She was clothed with the sun. She was wearing like a garment or a covering or a protection, the sun.
And the word sun is Strong’s 4016. It can also be translated the light or the rays of the sun or the light of the day, so she wasn’t -- that sounds like a strange thing -- she was clothed with the sun. It doesn’t make much sense, but if you could say she was clothed with the light that was shed by the sun, well I find that much easier to understand, and I want to suggest to you that the light of the sun typifies the imputed anointing.
And does anyone here not remember the difference between the imputed and the imparted anointing? The imputed anointing is delegated authority. It is given without repentance, the gifts and the calling of God, is given without repentance. That’s why you see all kinds of people up there moving and the Spirit of God casting out demons, healing the sick, prophesying, preaching, and they’re committing adultery, and they’re hating their brother, and they’re lying and they’re cheating and they’re stealing. That’s if it is indeed God on them, which it may not be. If it is indeed God, they have an imputed anointing that was granted to them without repentance. Why? Because God had a function that he wanted them to perform. He had a group of people that he wanted to be ministered to, and there was no holy man around that was capable of doing it, so we took an unholy man and gave him authority to do it, but you can only continue so long with an imputed anointing, and the Lord will come to you and say confess your sins and be holy as I am holy and continue in your ministry to me, and if that man will not confess his sins and get deliverance and change, that anointing -- you can be sure -- will lift off of him and his ministry.
The imparted anointing, it only comes with holiness, and it is indeed the Christ that is being formed in you after your human spirit has been fertilized. One of the changes that should be occurring in your mind is that you should be more holy than you were last year. You should desire holiness. You should desire righteousness. It’s a sign that Christ is being formed in you, and spiritual authority and power that’s coming forth from a Christ that has been conceived within you, that you can never lose, that becomes one with you just like your skin becomes one with your spiritual being, that anointing is called the imparted anointing. It is intimately associated with holiness and righteousness and cannot be separated from it.
So when you come up against somebody that claims he’s manifesting the anointing, you have two questions that you have to answer. Is it the anointing of Almighty God or is it a lying wonder? And the second question is -- is it the imputed anointing or is it the imparted anointing? And if it’s the imputed anointing and it is indeed God, you take everything that God has for you in that ministry, but don’t you stumble when you see the wickedness in the heart of that man, because it’s only the imputed anointing. And know that the imputed anointing is going to manifest in the Earth, and the fullness of the -- I’m sorry -- the imparted anointing is going to manifest in the Earth, and the fullness in the imparted anointing is the manifestation of the sons of God, Christ in full stature. And we have people on the Earth today that are ministering the gospel that are sons in part. I don’t know anyone that’s standing in full stature in this hour, but I do know some ministers that desire righteousness, and they’re seeking God for righteousness.
You go where God sends you, but he wants to be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. He does not want us blown about by every wind or doctrine. Wind meaning spirit and doctrine meaning word. You have to try that spirit, brethren. And you have to try that doctrine, and if you can’t, you tell God that you can’t, and he’ll give you what you need to survive in this world.
And the spirituality of the church today is a minefield. It’s dangerous. There’s a warfare going on. Christ is apprehending the living soul, and the living soul which is ruled by Satan would not hesitate if he could to destroy the soul in the body that you’re living in now. He’d destroy you before he would see Christ appear in you. Don’t make any mistakes about it. Don’t make any mistakes about it. The warfare is very real.
OK. So I’m suggesting to you that the light of the sun is the imputed anointing. She is clothed with the [AUDIO CUTS OUT], and I have a witness for you. 1 Peter 1:19 [AUDIO CUTS OUT] imputed anointing and not the imparted anointing? Because she hasn’t given birth to the child yet. The first -- the conception -- well, not even the conception. The first stage is the imputed anointing. It’s without repentance. If she had the imparted anointing, she would’ve delivered the child. That’s how I know it’s the imputed anointing.
1 [sic] Peter, Chapter 1, Verse 19. “We have also a more sure word of prophecy whereunto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a light that shineth in a dark place until the day dawn and the daystar arise in your heart.” What is Peter talking about? He said we have a more sure word of prophecy whereunto -- in other words, he’s saying we have prophecy -- whereunto you do well that you take heed. It would be wise for you to listen to the prophecy as if -- as unto a light that shineth in a dark place. What’s the light? The prophecy. The word of the Lord. And what’s the dark place? Your mind. Your mind. When the prophecy -- when the word of God enters into your mind, the light has entered into the dark place, and Peter is saying here you would do well to take heed. Why? Because when the prophecy -- when the word of God enters into your mind it’s going to be opposed by the thought that -- the thoughts that are darkness that are in your mind.
The church is filled with people today that will not even pray about something. They reject reconciliation. They reject the kingdom message. They reject everything. They won’t even pray about it. They’re so sure they’re right. Well, brethren, the light of the Spirit of God has entered into the darkness of their minds, and the darkness of their minds is prevailing. You don’t have to have a full revelation of the kingdom, but if you’re not willing to pray about something, if you’re not willing to admit that you might be wrong, you are in darkness, brethren, and if you have the spirit of God, he is dwelling in a dark place.
And Peter said you would do well to listen to the light that’s in the dark place of your brain until the day dawn. What’s the dawning of the day? Anybody? The dawning of the day. The appearance of Christ, OK? And we know that when the day dawns, it starts at the east and it takes 12 hours -- Isn’t it 12 hours? Or is it six hours? It takes six hours -- approximately six hours. The dawn of the day is approximately 6 o’clock -- it changes -- and high noon is 12 o’clock, and it takes six hours approximately for that sun to be at high noon, where nobody could deny that the sun is in the heavenlies.
So Peter says until the day dawn, until conception, OK? Until the sun of righteousness, which is Jesus Christ in your own heart, appears just above your horizon. He’s just glimmering. He’s conceived, and he starts to ascend, and Peter says -- “And the daystar arise in your heart.” The day dawns with the conception, and at the moment of Christ appearing in full stature, brethren, the daystar has arisen and is standing at high noon opposite you in your heart.
Opposite you. Opposite your soul. This is what it’s going to be like, brethren. He’s going to stand opposite your soul. We’ve done a lot of teaching here about mirror images, and this is ultimately what it’s going to be. The daystar, Christ, is going to be standing directly opposite your Adamic soul. And what’s going to happen because of that, he’s going to appear. He cannot appear without your soul. He needs a soul to appear in. Glory to God. And the spirit is standing directly opposite of the Adamic soul. [AUDIO CUTS OUT] OK. It’s going to stand opposite you this way. I’m sorry.
The natural man is the linear man. We exist on the circle of the Earth. We go round and round the Earth, and we will be a linear man or a carnal man for the rest of our life, for the rest of the days until the living soul is destroyed, except for one thing. Why? Someone is standing exactly opposite than us, and he’s bending us upwards. We are being bent upwards towards heaven, and we’re becoming a right triangle man. He is standing diametrically opposite us this way, and he’s forming a right angle. OK? He starts over here. We’re the linear man. We’re a straight line. That’s some straight line. And when Christ appears -- when the dawn breaks, he’s going to look something like that. And as he continues to arise in us, his position continues to change until he’s standing at an exact right angle, which is high noon, and that is the rising of the daystar, at which he sh- -- at which point he is appearing in such a measure that nobody can deny it.
I don’t know about you, but people deny that he’s appearing in me every day of my life. They don’t want to believe it, but I know that it’s true. But the day is coming that he’s going to appear at high noon in my soul, and he’s going to be directly opposite than me, and nobody -- there will be so much power flowing through me -- and you and whoever this happens to. It will be so obvious, Jesus said, as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, there’s going to be such spiritual power flowing through us that nobody will be able to deny that Christ is standing opposite us. Glory to God.
OK, so the light of the sun, in this scripture -- in Chapter 1 -- Chapter 12, Verse 1, I’m suggesting to you is the imputed anointing. Why? Because we know that the child has not been born yet, and prophecy also typifies the imputed anointing in this last scripture, because we know that prophecy is impart, and it’s passing away. Anything that’s passing away is the imputed anointing. The imparted anointing abideth forever. It is Christ. It is Christ in the Earth, and it abideth forever. Glory to God.
OK, I have another reference for you here. Let me read my notes so I don’t miss anything. Prophecy typifies the imputed anointing. It’s a supernatural sign that will result in the conception of the human spirit, and it is impart, and it shall pass away. When the human spirit joins with the Holy Spirit and Christ appears, both the human spirit and the Holy Spirit shall be swallowed up, and your spirit, the spirit that’s in you, shall be Christ. Hallelujah.
2 Corinthians, Chapter 4, Versus 3 to 6. “But if thou gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost. In whom the God of this world hath blinded, the minds of them which believed not lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ” -- There’s that light again -- “lest the light” -- So we see the light is the imputed anointing, and it’s also the gospel of Christ -- “lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ who was the image of God should shine unto them, for God who commanded the light to shine out of the darkness of our minds hath shined in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” So we see that the light is the imputed anointing, and the imputed anointing is the light of the knowledge of the glory of God, and it’s also the light of the glorious gospel of Christ. Hallelujah.
Now, there’s something here that disquiets a lot of people. Even though God is reconciling the whole world within himself, we’re just told that some can be lost back in Verse 3, but if thou gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost. So the Lord just told me to take this time to go over a few scriptures with you. We’ve talked about it, but we’ve never gone over this scripture. Excuse me a minute.
1 Corinthians, Chapter 4, Versus 11 through 15. [sic] “For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, or stubble, every man’s work shall be made manifest for the day shall declare it because it shall be revealed by fire, and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built there upon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss, but he himself shall be saved yet so as by fire. 1 Corinthians 4, 11 through 15. Did I have the wrong scripture down? OK, that was 1 Corinthians, Chapter 3, Verses 3 -- I’m sorry -- 1 Corinthians, Chapter 3, Verses 11 to 15. OK, so I just wanted to go over that a little bit, this concept of suffering loss and what Jesus was talking about.
OK, Verse 3, “But if our gos- -- “ -- Well, I keep getting in the wrong place here. Verse 11 -- “For other foundation can no man lay that is laid” -- And I hope we all know that the foundation is Jesus Christ of Nazareth. And what are we building? What are we building that we need a foundation for? We’re building a man. We’re building a man. A spiritual man that’s going to appear in the flesh in the realm of appearance, and this man is going to have a spirit and he’s going to have a soul, and he’s going to have a body. God is building a man, and he’s building a man of which each of us is a member. We’re supposed to have a spirit, which is Christ; a soul, which is Christ; and a body, which is the manifestation of the spirit of the Father. The Adamic man has a spirit, which is the weak, beggarly human spirit, which has married Satan and produced the carnal mind. She has a soul, which is the Adamic soul, which the scripture calls made of wood, capable of being burnt and destroyed, and it has the beggarly body, which is the image of the spirit of Satan. This body is not the image of Almighty God. This image -- this body is the image of the ruling spirit of the Adamic man, which is Satan.
And don’t panic if you’re listening to this message; you just don’t have a revelation of who Satan is. He’s not red with a tail and horns, he’s the natural man. That’s what he is, and he rules in your unconscious mind; and he is the beginning of what will ultimately be the creation of God. It’s as if God wanted to make a man, and he took a r- -- an iron rod, which is Satan, and then he picked up some lumps of clay, and he just globbed it on the iron rod, and that’s Adam. That’s the soul.
And we’re still in the process of being made, and He’s adding his Christ to us. He’s adding the life of His Son to us that’s going to make us incorruptible, and we’re all going to be together as a part of the new creation man, with Adam and Satan in total submission to the ruling Christ, performing their function of being the form, which gives -- the substance which gives form to the Spirit of God. God wants a shape -- a form and a shape. He’s a Spirit. He has no form or shape. He’s invisible, and he’s wrapping himself in darkness, which is Satan and Adam. And Satan’s going to be castrated, and Adam is going to be redeemed, and we’re going to have a fully functioning organism known as the creation of God, all working together. Glory to God.
OK. So that’s what we’re building, and the only foundation that’s going to survive is Jesus Christ. You see, you have to be built on a spirit, a foundation must be a spirit. If your foundation is the spirit of Satan, you shall not survive, because the spirit of Satan and the Adamic soul is being judged. It’s been condemned unto death, and if the foundation that you’re building on, if the spirit that you’re building on is the spirit of the natural man, you are going to be burned, and you shall not survive. You must be building on the foundation of the Lord Jesus Christ. Hallelujah.
We have all kinds of people looking for eternal life in this world, but they’re building on the foundation of Satan. They’ll never make it. They’ll never find it, not through science, not through magic, not through witchcraft, not through anything. They will never find eternal life outside of the Lord Jesus Christ.
So the foundation that we build on -- that we’re building what on? This creation that we are. It has to be the Lord Jesus Christ. Now if any man build this foundation upon gold, the deity of Jesus Christ; silver, the redemption of his soul; precious stones -- that’s the life of Christ -- and it says here he can also build it on wood -- that’s the Adamic soul -- hay and stubble -- those are the three elements of the Adamic soul -- every man’s work shall be made manifest. What does that mean? What are you building on? What are you sewing to? If you sew to the flesh, you shall reap corruption. If you sew to the spirit, you shall reap the life of the ages, and every work that you’re doing is going to be revealed for what it is. Are you building on the spirit of Satan? Are you building on good works? Are you looking for the life of the ages through good works? Are you looking for the life of the ages because you cast out demons or you heal the sick or because you prophesize? Do you think you’ve got it made for those reasons? Brethren, you’re going to be burned because there’s only one thing that’s going to get you into the age of the kingdom, and that is the appearance of the Lord Jesus Christ in you. You’re not going to get in because he cast out demons or because you do any form of work, even if it’s spiritual works. He must appear in you. Your human spirit must be fertilized. You must conceive. He must appear in you, and when he appears in you, he shall swallow up your soul, and life as we now know it shall cease to exist. He is all that there is. Glory to God.
Every man’s work shall be made manifest. It will be revealed what you are basing your hope of salvation upon, and how is it going to be revealed? God is going to put your work in the fire. You’re building a house, brethren, for your spirit. And that house -- the house of the spirit is the soul, and the house of the soul is the body, and everybody, whether they know it or not, they’re building a house. They’re doing things that they think are going to get them in right with God.
And the Lord is going to reveal to you what you’re building on through trials and tribulations. When the fiery trial comes upon you, brethren, you should have a choice. Whether you respond out of your Adamic soul or whether you respond out of Christ. When they persecute you, when they hate you, when you lose a loved one, whatever the traumatic trial in your life is. Do you hate? Do you -- Are you bitter? Are you filled with unforgiveness? Or are you manifesting Christ? Do you forgive? Do you love? This is the purpose of the trial. What is operating in you? I don’t care how many good works you do when everything’s good in your life. What do you do when the bottom falls out? Do you scream like a witch? Do you curse your husband out? Do you blame everybody around you or do you fall down on your knees and pray to Almighty God that you shouldn’t sin in your heart and reap death?
That’s the purpose of the trials. Satan is just doing what he’s supposed to be doing. He’s a good guy. He’s serving God, and if you’re getting beat up all over the place. What it means is that there’s sin in your heart, brethren, and the fire is proving it. Satan’s doing exactly what he’s told, and if he reveals sin in your heart, that doesn’t make you the bad guy either. The purpose of it -- let’s get our minds up out of the gutter, brethren. We’re supposed to be Christ, the purpose of the trial, no matter what the fire reveals, is that you should confess it, that you should repent, that you should receive deliverance, and that Christ should grow and appear in you. That’s the whole purpose of the trial, to show you what’s in your own heart so that God could cut it out, but he’s not cutting it out until you confess it and repent. It’s just not that easy. You must repent. You must give up your sin.
OK. Every man’s work shall be made manifest. He’s going to show you what’s in your own heart for the day shall declare it. What’s the day? The day is the time period in which the light appears. Brethren, when Christ is conceived in you and starts to rise, the day has risen in your heart. It’s the day, and the day shall declare the sin and the darkness of your heart. When Christ takes up residence in your heart, he will shine his light on ev- -- excuse me -- every evil work in your heart, and if you want to get through this labor and you want to have this baby as fast as you can, the best favor you could do yourself is say, yes, Lord, it’s true. I thought that wicked thought. I have envy. I have pride. I have rebellion. I hate my brother. I have unforgiveness. I have bitterness. Oh, she didn’t mention sexual sin. That’s the least of it, brethren. That’s easy. You know whether you have sexual sin or not. Well let’s go out and get the homosexuals, and let’s beat up the adulterers and the [AUDIO CUTS OUT] and the fornicators. What about your pride, envy and rebellion, bitterness and unforgiveness, and don’t tell me it’s not there because you got a white -- oh, your own white garment on of self righteousness. God’s going to put the fire on you, and you’re going to know what’s in your heart, and if you don’t confess it, he’s going to set a bonfire under you, so you better confess it when he first shows it to you. I’m trying to help you.
OK. “And the day shall declare it,” Christ, when he appears in you, he’s going to declare the work that your life is built on. Are you reaping death or are you reaping life? Because it shall be revealed by fire. The hope that you have to enter into the life of the ages shall be revealed by fire, fiery trials and also the spirit of God. Fire is the spirit of God. What are you basing your hope on, brethren?
And the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. Is it hay, wood, or stubble? Is it works or is it gold and silver? Is it the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, which has appeared in your spirit and the redemption of your soul. Only the metal will abide the fire. Your spirit has to have birthed Christ, and your soul has to be redeemed if you want to enter into the life of the ages. If any man’s work abide, which he hath built there upon, he shall receive a reward. What’s the reward? Life. If God puts you through the fire and your work still abides, well what is your work? What is the spiritual man building? He’s building a house which is a soul. If your soul survives the chastening, you will receive a reward, the life of the ages.
Verse 15. “If any man’s work shall be burned” -- If God puts you through the fire, brethren, and your work is burned, you’re going to suffer loss. If God puts you through the fire and there’s no gold in your spirit, Christ hasn’t appeared there, and there’s no silver in your soul, you haven’t been redeemed, OK? You’re going to suffer the loss of your house, which is your soul, but he himself shall be saved. His spiritual substance shall be saved. We are spirit, brethren. We are spirit. We have to know who we are. We are spirit, and we are building a house for our spiritual being. That house is the soul. If for whatever reason in this lifetime each man is coming in his own order. If for whatever reason in this lifetime Christ has not appeared in your spirit, and your soul has not been redeemed, you’re going to lose the house that you’re building. This personality, possibly this body, but the spiritual substance of which you’re made shall be saved. The spiritual substance shall be saved yet so as by fire. You see? If in this lifetime the fire of God comes upon you and Christ is not found in you, your spiritual substance shall be saved, but you still have to go through the fire, and the Lord is going to arrange situations for you that will result in Christ appearing in your human spirit. The salvation of your spirit is the appearance of Christ in you, and it’s possible to lose the personality that you’re living in, in this lifetime and still have your spiritual substance saved by the appearance of Christ in it. The soul and the body are just paraphernalia that are assisting in the appearance of the spiritual life which we are, which is Christ. Hallelujah.
OK, now the word loss -- it says he shall suffer loss -- the word loss is Strong’s 2210, and it means to sustain damage, to receive injury, and Webster says that loss is the harm or privation resulting from separation. What’re you going to lose? Your soul, brethren, your soul. Your human soul. If Christ didn’t appear in your spirit, your soul wasn’t redeemed. When the fire touches you, your soul is going to burn up. Glory to God.
OK. I have a comment for you. The house that the spiritual man is building is a place for his spirit to live that is his soul. If his spirit is resting in his Adamic soul when Christ appears, his soul will not survive. If his spirit is resting in the soul of Christ when Christ appears, that soul will abide the fire. And we’ve been teaching here for months that there’s a new foundation of power in the Earth. There is a new soul, that if you have Christ, you have a new soul. You are now double souled. James calls it double-minded, but if you look it up in the Greek, you’re double souled. You have an Adamic soul and a soul of Christ, and that spiritual substance which we are, that which is the substance of Christ, not that which is the intelligence in the Earth, but that which is of the son of God that was joined to the intelligence of the Earth from the beginning of time, that substance, that life of God must transfer out of the Adamic soul into the soul of Christ. We must exchange our soul. We must exchange the soul of Adam for the soul of Christ. We must get into Christ, because it’s the soul of Christ that will not be destroyed. And the way you exchange your soul from Adam into Christ is that you confess your sins, you repent. You get deliverance, you get the curses broken, and by the power -- and this is the only way you can enter in, brethren, by the power of Almighty God, the day is going to come -- we’ve studied in recent chapters in the book of Revelation -- that the power will be imparted to us and we shall cast ourselves forth from the soul life of Adam into the soul life of Christ into the age of the kingdom, into an eternity of peace and contentment. World without end. No more tears, no more curse, no more misery. It’s in Christ, our spiritual substance must be transferred. I don’t know anyone that that’s happened to yet except Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
We must prepare ourselves. There is a preparation. Do you remember the parable of the 10 virgins? Five wise and five foolish. There is a preparation. When the season comes that the power is made available to believers to transfer out of the Adamic soul into the soul of Christ, only those that are prepared are going in, and those that are not prepared, their soul -- their Adamic soul is going to be burnt up and their body. The spiritual substance of which they are shall be saved, but this personality of this lifetime will never rise again. Hallelujah.
OK, and I want to touch on another question here, going back to this earlier scripture in 2 Corinthians 4:3. We just read it before and it says “But if thou gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost.” What do you mean if our gospel is hid? To whom is the gospel hidden? What do you mean it’s hidden? Why does one man understand it and another man not? Why does one group of believers in the church understand it and another believer don’t [sic] understand it? Why not?
Matthew 13:19. “When anyone heareth the word of the kingdom and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away what is sewn in his heart.” When you don’t understand it, you lose it, OK? When you sit in a meeting like this, if you don’t understand it, you should ask for prayer. You should come up for deliverance, because if the seed of this gospel is falling upon your heart and you walk out of here and say I don’t understand it and don’t ask God to help you, it’s going to be clawed away by Satan. So it’s possible for people to be sitting in churches with heavy anointing for 10-15 years and walk away with nothing, and the scripture says that when Christ appears, the door is going to be shut, and there are going to be all kinds of believers out there saying Lord, Lord, why didn’t you appear in me? I cast out demons; I healed the sick. I did everything you told me to do. How come you haven’t appeared in me? Why? Because I never got inside your heart. It’s not works. My image must be impressed and be conceived and be birthed in your own heart. I don’t care how many demons you cast out, Christ must appear in you, and he’s not appearing without holiness, and holiness is not appearing without repentance, and repentance is not appearing without confession of your sin. Examine yourselves, brethren, and purifyeth yourself as everyone that [UNINTELLIGIBLE] that you might be holy like Jesus Christ. Must be purified. There’s a preparation for this, brethren. Glory to God.
OK. Why don’t they understand? Luke 8, Verse 10. “And Jesus said unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God.” Unto you it is kno- -- I’m sorry -- “said unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God but to others in parables that seeing they might not see and hearing they might not understand.” It is given to one group that they will understand, and it is given -- it is determined by Almighty God that another group, they will not understand. Would God really do that? Yes. Why would he do it? Because each man is coming in his own order, and he knows that even the soul in the body of this lifetime, if it’s destroyed, that he still has the ability and the power to save the spiritual substance that you are.
Now, that phrase that I just read, that seeing they might not see and hearing they might not understand, that comes from Isaiah 6:9, and I want to read you the three verses that Isaiah speaks after that. It’s Isaiah Chapter 6, Versus 11 through 13. “Then said I, Lord” -- this is Isaiah talking -- how long? How long is this going to go on, that people are going to be blinded and they’re going to be deaf? How long? And the Lord answered, “Until the cities be wasted without inhabitance” -- that’s your body -- “and the houses without man” -- that’s your soul -- “and the land be utterly desolate.” God is destroying the living soul. Why? Because he is in sin. In fact, he is sin and the judgments of Almighty God are upon the natural man. God said he’s not going to stop blinding them and plugging up their ears until they’re utterly destroyed. What is he talking about?
Verse 12. “And the Lord have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.” And the Lord have moved men far away from where? From God. What separates God from man? Sin. And the Lord have removed men far away from him, and there was a great forsaking, a great desolation, a great destruction in the midst of the land, which is the living soul, because when we’re separated from God, we’re dying. We’re under judgments for sin and being separated from his life. We’re dying.
“But” -- God says, in Verse 13 -- “But yet in it” -- in what? In the living soul -- “shall be a tenth” -- a tithe -- “and it shall return and it shall be eaten.” The 10 percent of the living soul that God demands, that is his -- that’s the spiritual substance which is the real life of men, that came from the spiritual son of God that was joined to the intelligence in the Earth. He is going to rain destruction on this living soul. He’s not going to let them understand, and he’s not going to let them hear, because why? They’re unrepentant, and he’s going to rain down judgment upon them until the tenth is all that’s left, that which is him which is in you which is capable of repenting, which is capable of confessing your sin, which is capable of purifying yourself, which is capable of producing Christ, which is capable of returning unto God. He’s going to burn away everything that’s sin in the minds of man. “And as a teil tree and as an oak whose substance is in them,” -- if you have Christ, brethren, your life substance is in you. “When they cast their leaves so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.”
Brethren, if you are a human being or if there is a human being that you have loved that you have seen die, what this script- -- and you’re grieving because either you think that they’re not saved or you don’t understand what God is doing, I suggest to you that this scripture is saying when that tree -- and we know that God refers to men as trees -- when it casts its leaves, when the personality and the body is cast down, the holy seed shall be the substance thereof. That part of every human being which came from the son of God that was propelled into the Earth. That shall be our substance. When our bodies and our souls burn, when they deteriorate, when they destroy that which was in us which was of God from the beginning, that shall be our substance, and the Lord is working in that.
OK. God just told me to diverge on that, and that was -- what we got off on was that the light typified the imputed anointing, and then we went on in this teaching as to -- the fact that the light meant the word of God and the spirit of God, and then we went in on a little teaching to try and impart some understanding as to why, in this hour, we see people dying when we know there are many scriptures that say all men shall be saved. So the Lord just told me to review that a little bit.
And I would like now to give you an Alternate Translation on that second third of Verse 12 of Chapter 1. “A woman was clothed with the son and the moon under her feet, and the living soul in right standing with God because of the spirit of Jesus Christ and an understanding of the gospel of the kingdom and the passions of her soul realm were in submission to the Christ which had been conceived in her.” The living soul is in right standing with God because the imputed anointing, the spirit of Jesus Christ and an understanding of the gospel of the kingdom, and because of this, the passions of her soul realm were in submission to the Christ which had been conceived in her.
Now what I’ve tried to convey to you is that the Lord is saving the whole living soul. The living soul is a spiritual entity. The living soul is a spiritual entity, and God is saving the whole living soul. If you see a human being die, lose their body and their soul, that spiritual substance, which is the reality of their life, is still a part of the spiritual entity known as the living soul, and that is what is being saved. Glory to God.
OK, going on with the last phrase of Verse 1 of Chapter 12. “And upon her head, a crown of 12 stars.” The head, we’ve -- all of these symbols we’ve studied through the first 11 chapters, so I’m going through it quickly.
The head typifies the mind. That’s where our soul is, in our mind. The crown typifies -- and, well we -- when we studied that at the beginning of the book of Revelation, we found out that it was not a crown like you would see in a fairytale, a gold crown. It’s more like a crown that you saw in ancient Greece made of vines that were woven together, and the crown typifies the weaving together of the mind of God with the Adamic mind, and when the mind of God is woven together with the mind or soul of Adam, the mind of God overpowers the Adamic soul, inhibits it from sinning, prevents it from sinning, yet keeps it as a part of the creation because the Adamic soul or the mind of the Adamic man is that which is causing Christ to appear. It’s necessary. It’s a part of the creation, but it must be pacified. So the crown typifies the weaving together of the mind of Christ with the mind -- with the criminal mind of man, bringing that criminal mind into servitude to the mind of Christ.
And the number 12 -- she had a crown of 12 stars -- the number 12 typifies the government of God, and stars typify -- we got that, I think, in the second or third chapter of the book of Revelation. The stars typify spiritual men, and spiritual men possess the truth of God’s word, and the truth of God’s word is where? In the mind of Christ. So what do we have here?
Alternate Translation. This is the third part of that first verse in Chapter 12. “And her mind was woven together and one with the spirit of God.
Alternate Translation, Revelation 12, Verse 1. “This is now the condition of the living soul as God sees her after the sons of God have manifested,” -- and I just want to remind you that God sees her like this. Every single member of the living soul is not in this condition. This is in the mind of God, and what happens after God sees it in his mind? It comes to pass. First God sees it in his mind. He imagines it. Then it comes to pass in the realm of the spirit, and then it comes to pass in the realm of appearance. That’s how God creates. He imagines, it appears in the realm of the spirit, and then it appears in the realm of appearance. So this panorama of the living soul exists in the realm of the spirit. We said the wonder was in heaven. It does not mean that every member of the living soul on the Earth is partaking of it at this moment. Each man is coming in his own order.
OK. Alternate Translation, Revelation, Chapter 12, Verse 1. “And a supernatural evidence of God’s ability to reproduce his image in the hearts of men was seen in the realm of God’s spirit. The living soul in right standing with God” -- This is what the wonder was -- “The living soul in right standing with God” -- And she was in that condition because the spirit of Jesus Christ -- “because she had received the spirit of Jesus Christ and an understanding of the gospel of the kingdom, and as a result of receiving the spirit of Jesus Christ and an understanding of the gospel of the kingdom, the passions of her soul realm were in submission to the Christ which had been conceived in her, and as a result of that, her mind became woven together and one with the spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ.”
You see, first you get the mind of Jesus Christ, and He goes to war with your Adamic mind, but when He wins the war, brethren, He joins himself to the Adamic mind and weaves himself together with it and makes the Adamic mind the substance which will give his invisible spirit form. First he wages war against it, then he joins with it after it’s subdued.
OK, the above -- Verse 1 describes the first stage of the appearance of Christ, the conception of his image in the human spirit of the living soul. I’m going to do Verse 2. It’s very short, but it’s really a part of Verse 1, so I’m going to go ahead and do it. “And she being with child, cried, travailing in birth and pained to be delivered.” This word cried, we’ve studied it many times, it’s Strong’s 2896. It’s used in many of the previous chapters, and when we studied it, we found out that it’s a word that describes harsh sounds, and we went into a deep study on it. I don’t want to take the time to do it now, but it really means the sound of spiritual communication, and it’s also used to describe preaching. If you look -- I use two lexicons, Strong’s and Thayer’s Lexicon, and it can be translated to be preaching. They cried out loud. It means to say something with strength and with force -- with force, and with knowledge, and that word is used to describe preaching, and it’s also used to describe spiritual communication.
So she being with child, this group of believers that have conceived Christ, one of the signs that you’ve conceived Christ is that you’re going to preach. Now you don’t have to be sitting up here with a microphone. I was preaching for years before God gave me this ministry. He sent me to people in church; he had people call me. I met people in the streets. I only did it when the anointing moved upon me, but I was preaching for years. You don’t need a ministry like this to be preaching. If God sends anyone to you for an explanation, and it’s God, you’re preaching, and that is a sign that Christ has been conceived in you. That is one sign that Christ has been conceived in you. So she being with child, she preached the gospel, and brethren, you can’t preach the gospel of God if you don’t have Christ, because Adam doesn’t know the gospel of God. He knows the gospel of the cross and a lot of false doctrine, but the truth of the word of God is in Christ, and I’m telling you that you can’t get this word -- even if you sit in a ministry like this -- you can’t get this word if Christ has not been formed in you. Now if God brings you to a ministry like this and you haven’t conceived if God wants you here, you’re going to conceive. But you can’t get this gospel in your spirit -- you can get an intellectual knowledge of it -- but you can’t get it in your spirit if Christ has not been conceived in you because the truth is in Christ. He is the truth, the way, and the life; and the Adamic mind, even if the Holy Spirit is present, cannot bring forth this doctrine and truth in your spirit.
So she had conceived Christ, and she was preaching, and she being with child, cried and travailing in birth and pained to be delivered. Now, this word travailing is Strong’s 5605, and it means the pains of childbirth, but I remind you, I know we’ve talked about this before, that the same Greek word that’s translated travailing is translated sorrows in the dissertation by Jesus in Matthew 24:8 and Mark 13:8 where he tells us these are the beginning of sorrows, talking about the signs of the tribulation, and I declare to you, brethren, that the truth of the tribulation is that it’s happening in your mind.
Now, I don’t doubt that there’s going to be great upheaval in the world. I’m not going to say the world’s going to be a fairyland. We know that whatever happens in the spirit usually breaks through -- it always breaks through into the realm of appearance, but what I’ve been preaching here for almost 2 years is this -- if ant- -- if a man that’s manifesting a spirit of antichrist appears in the Middle East, well, that’s nice. What does that have to do with me? I don’t believe in the rapture. I’m not being caught away. I’m not flying away in the sky. What does it mean for me? Nothing. It means nothing to me. If there’s a common market over in the Middle East, what does it mean to me? Nothing. You see, the church, they have it backwards. The tribulation is in your mind. Christ is defeating your Adamic soul. He is putting Satan under his feet. The arch enemy of your soul is being defeated by the spirit of Jesus Christ, which has produced his own image in your soul, in your mind, and it’s so traumatic, there’s such a shaking going on that it’s piercing through into the realm of appearance. What’re you looking at the Middle East for? Look at your own brain. What good is what’s happening in the Middle East doing you? If you want to look at both -- if you’re interested in the happenings in the Middle East, that’s fine, but I declare to you that if you are a believer and this shaking is going on in the Middle East, and it’s not going on in your mind, that means Christ is not appearing in you, and you are very likely to be one of the people banging on his door saying you appeared and not in me. I checked out every current event. I kept newspaper clippings. I watched everything. I have every article ever written on the antichrist in the common market. Why did you leave me out? Because, brethren, the only way that you’re getting in is if the spirit of Jesus Christ is reproduced in your soul. No form of work is going to get you in. Nothing. Not even casting out demons and healing the sick. He’s got to appear in you. It’s a spiritual happening, and it’s a work that you can’t do. Only Jesus can do it.
We know that science says women can get pregnant without a man, but she can only produce women. She can only produce a female child. If you want a man child born in you, and you shall be saved in childbearing, and it has to be a man child, brethren. If you want a man child born in you, you have to get close to the Lord Jesus Christ, you have to have intercourse with Him, and His son has to appear in you, and the fact that you’re monitoring the Middle East or casting out demons or healing the sick does not ensure the consummation of your marriage to the Lord Jesus Christ. What will make it very likely is the examination of your own soul, the confession of sin, repentance, and a burning desire for union with him. And if you don’t have it, if you hear this word and you believe it, and you don’t have these abilities, tell God that you want it but you’re not even desiring it in your heart. Level with the Lord. You can’t fool him. He knows what’s in your heart anyway. Level with him. It’s your only chance. There’s no work. There’s no work that can do it. It’s an act of his mercy and his grace, and if you think you’re getting in by works, it’s nothing but pride. We are helpless. We are helpless. We shall be saved by his mercy or we shall not be saved at all. There is nothing that you can do except humble yourself and follow his rules, of course, but you must humble yourself. There’s nothing you could do to get it for yourself.
OK. So she being with child cried. She conceived and she preached -- one of the signs that you’ve conceived -- and she was travailing in birth. Now Jesus said that these are the beginning of many sorrows, so she was travailing in birth. She was in tribulation. Many trials and tribulations and great pain upon her. And brethren, there are people all through the church world that are in great pain, and they’re condemned by the church world. All that it means is they’ve entered into tribulation, and the condemners have not. That’s all that it means. Your number isn’t up yet.
Now if you see someone in a lot of tribulation, it doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve conceived the Christ child. You have to see if they’re preaching the gospel of the kingdom. You have to meet all the criteria, you see. Some people have the gospel of the kingdom, but they’re not travailing, and they don’t even believe in the travail. They don’t believe in Satan. They don’t believe in the warfare, but God’s going to get to them. We don’t have to go there and tell them that they’re wrong. God’s going to witness it to them in due season, and the truth of the matter -- I preach this all the time -- the average person couldn’t -- cannot bear this ministry. It’s too painful. You need to be prepared for this ministry. Either you have to be called by special dispensation of God or you have to have had years of deliverance to even sit here and listen to this message, I’m convinced of it. People can’t bear it. There are thousands of people out there. They love the kingdom message. They embrace it. It’s wonderful, but you start telling them what they have to go through to get there, and they’re out of here. They’re out of here. They have a demon, a curse, trials and tribulations, pain and torment. Not me. I’m a king’s kid. Oh really? But that’s not my job. My job is to preach, God’s job to chase them. I don’t chase them unless a special anointing rises up in me to say something. I certainly don’t bring tragedy into anybody’s life. The only thing that I do when God anoints me is to -- I could give a rebuke. Glory to God.
OK. So she -- those members of the living soul that had conceived Christ preached the gospel of the kingdom -- not the gospel of the cross -- the gospel of the kingdom, and they were in great tribulation, and they pained to be delivered, and the word pained is Strong’s 9:28. It means to torture, to be in torment. It means to test metals by the touchstone, and it’s the same Greek word that’s translated torment in Revelation 9:5 and Revelation 11:10, and those versus describe the tormenting power of the two witnesses or the sons of God. It says the sons of God shall have the power to torment men. What it means is they shall have the authority to bring judgment upon them, the judgment that will bring forth confession of sin and repentance and ultimately bring forth the formation of Christ in them.
So this char- -- this woman that’s in the heavenlies, she’s the living soul, she’s conceived, she’s preaching the gospel of the kingdom, she’s in tribulation, and she’s being -- and she’s in torment -- the torment that is resulting in the deliverance that is going to result in the appearance of Christ in her, and that means deliverance from curses which are ungodly thought patterns and demons which are the fruit of those ungodly thought patterns that have been birthed in your own mind that must be cast out. And this is the process that will lead to Christ appearing in you.
When I first came to the Lord, I read at the back of the book of Revelation, and it says no more tears and no more curse, and I said “What is he talking about? No more tears.” And then I started to cry. I’ve been crying for about 10 years. There’s a lot of tears in this process, but we’re told in the scripture that in the morning when the man child is born -- you had a rough birth, Debbie, right? Debbie had a really rough labor with her baby. In the morning, when that child was born, you wouldn’t have not gone through it for anything, Amen? You want that baby. Glory to God. And our salvation is in that child. Hallelujah.
OK. Alternate Translation. This is the second verse of Chapter 12 of the book of Revelation. “And the pregnant living soul was preaching the gospel of the kingdom.” -- sounds funny, but it’s glorious -- “And the pregnant living soul” -- do you hear this? She was preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and she was laboring to live out of the spirit of God. What is that? What did I say before? She was travailing in birth. I said she was having great tribulation. Well why was she in great tribulation? Because she wasn’t yielding to Satan in her mind. She was endeavoring to live out of Christ, to forgive, to manifest righteousness, to do honor. She was endeavoring and enduring the painful testing which was proving that her spirit was bringing forth Christ, when men cursed her, when they hated her, when they despitefully used her, what did she do? She blessed them, and she prayed for them, and she helped them, and she raised them up to where she was. I’m going to read it again. “And the pregnant living soul was preaching the gospel of the kingdom” -- Glory to God. -- “And she was laboring to live out of the spirit of God and enduring the painful testing, the purpose of which is to prove that her spirit was bringing forth the Christ.”
You’re not entering into the kingdom, brethren, without being proven. God’s not giving you power. He’s not giving you kingdom power of life and death over men unless he is fully satisfied that your motivating force is not Satan but Christ. That’s what the trials and tribulations are all about. Glory to God.
Recap. Revelation 12, Verses 1 and 2. “And a supernatural evidence of God’s ability to reproduce his image in the hearts of men was seen in the realm of God’s spirit. The living soul, she was the wonder, and she was in right standing with God because the spirit of Jesus Christ” -- “Because she had received the spirit of Jesus Christ and she had received an understanding of the gospel of kingdom -- of the kingdom, and the passions of her soul realm were in submission to the Christ which had been conceived in her, and her mind was woven together and one with the spirit of Jesus Christ, and the pregnant living soul was preaching the gospel of the kingdom” -- Hallelujah -- “And she was laboring to live out of the spirit of God and enduring the painful testing which was proving that her spirit was bringing forth Christ.” Glory to God.
Does anybody have any questions tonight? Anybody? If there are no questions. I’ll ask you again -- if there are no questions. I’d like to quickly go over Matthew 24:8, where he talks about the signs of the tribulation. No questions? OK, let’s try and get this in.
Matthew 24:8. Glory to God. Hallelujah. OK, I’m going to back up to Verse 5. Matthew 24:5. “For many shall come in my name saying I am Christ, and they shall deceive many.” -- And we’ve been preaching in this ministry that God has revealed to us about the lying wonders that exist -- at least we know -- at least I know of -- I believe God has spoken to me about one church today. I’m told deliverance takes place there, and the Lord God has told me that it is a lying wonder and that these people are saying I am Christ, and it says right here, they shall deceive many.
Verse 6. “And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars,” -- and brethren, I declare to you that these wars are between believers. These wars are between believers. When you enter into the ministry of the two witnesses, it is the mind of God against the mind of the Adamic soul ruled by Satan, and it is warfare, and if you’ve entered into it, you have experienced spiritual warfare, brethren, that could knock your socks off. It’s glorious when you see God prevailing, but it’s no fun because we still are a natural man, and we get beat all the time -- we get cast down, but we’re never destroyed. We’re never destroyed. Hallelujah. So, and ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars. You’re going to hear that other people are in spiritual warfare too, but see that [UNINTELLIGIBLE] for all these things must come to pass but the end is not yet. Brethren, these are signs that Christ is appearing in you. When you go from the conception of Christ to the appearance of Christ, you are going to be involved in warfare, brethren. There’s no other way to go. Don’t run from it. Don’t fight it. You can’t beat it because you’re coming whether you choose or you refuse. He’s going to appear in you if he’s chosen to do so, and there’s no getting away from it, so don’t be trouble and don’t fight about it. These things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Verse 7. “For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.” Nation is a gentile; it’s a non-Jew. The non-Jew shall rise against the non-Jew. It’s all over the news, brethren. And kingdom against kingdom. If you have a king, you are a kingdom, brethren. If you are ruled by Christ, you are a kingdom. It’s -- gentile shall arise against gentile and nonbeliever -- I’m sorry, and believer shall rise against believer, and if you don’t believe it, brethren, hang around with me for a couple of weeks, because I get it at least several times a week. You should’ve been with me last Friday. The guy had the Holy Spirit. I don’t doubt it for a second. He waged war against me. God gave me a word of wisdom. I was going to be beaten with a cat of nine tails, and the next day, I was beaten, brethren, and so was Paul. I’m no better than him. And so was Jesus, and I’m no better than my master. Hallelujah.
Verse 7. “For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines.” Brethren, the church is starving for this word. This -- the chur- -- and they’re not getting it on two levels. The first level, it’s shrouded. You can only get it if God gives it to you. And the second level is that the darkness in their own mind won’t even let them receive it. Only by special dispensation of Christ can you believe this word, because in this hour, he’s not coming forth in every man. In this hour, he’s coming forth in a first fruits company, and everyone else was blinded. Glory to God.
Verse 7. “For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there shall be famines and pestilences.” Brethren, you better believe there are spiritual pestilences going on, because we get hit from time-to-time in this ministry, and there are spiritual pestilences coming against us, curses, and demons, and you better believe it, that Satan is the pestilence, and he’s being flung at us by workers and witchcraft, not in the servitude of God, OK, but out from under the dominion of God, waging war in accordance with his own determination against the servants of God, and he shall be apprehended. Pestilences. And earthquakes, brethren, and we’ve been preaching in this ministry for months that an earthquake typifies a piercing through from one realm to the other. Earthquakes, spiritual power, piercing through from the realm of the soul until the realm of appearance, and it’s not always the spirit of God. It’s witchcraft power, and it’s also the spirit of God. Spiritual power. Piercing through into the realm of appearance and into the realm of the soul.
Verse 8. “All these are the beginning of sorrows” -- Which is the word pained, and she pained to be delivered. All this is the beginning of your labor, the result of which is that Christ shall appear in you.
Verse 9. “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted.” Brethren, they place me on alters -- There are people placing me on alters. Do you know that that’s how they pray? They pray the psalms against me, that my back should be broken, that the judgment should be executed against me. Brethren, they have delivered me up. They deliver me up frequently to be afflicted by the spiritual authorities. They might believe they’re giving me up to God, but when God rejects their prayer, they’ve turned me over to ungodly witchcraft power to be afflicted, and because I’m not in full stature yet, I suffer a great deal. There’s nothing I can do about it. There’s nothing I can do about it. They deliver me up to be afflicted, and they shall kill you. Jesus said if you hate your brother, you’ve killed him. My enemies are more than the hairs of my head, and I don’t mean to be just talking about me, brethren, this is happening to a lot of other people at this time, and if it’s not happening to you yet, it shall be happening to you. They will hate you because Christ is being formed in you. They will hate the doctrine you preach. They will hate the fact -- the people in deliverance will hate you for preaching reconciliation. The people in reconciliation hate you for preaching deliverance, and both of them hate you for preaching whatever else God has given us in this ministry that they don’t like. They will hate you, brethren. “And ye shall be hated of all nations, all non-Jews for my namesake.” God’s calling them heathens, you see. When you’re manifesting Christ and they hate you, even if they have the Holy Spirit, God calls them heathens, you see, because Christ cannot hate Christ. Well what does that mean? They have the Holy Spirit? It means that Christ in them is tread underfoot. They might have -- Christ might even be conceived in them, but at the very least, they have the Holy Spirit. Well then how could they hate you? Because Christ has tread under foot, and they’re living out of Adam. God calls them nations, gentiles, non-Jews.
1 Tim. “And then shall many be offended.” -- They’re going to stumble -- “And they shall betray one another. Brethren, I know this is happening to me, and I know other believers, we are the stumbling blocks prophesied in Isaiah. God sends us to other believers to try them, and the evil that manifests in their heart is unbelievable, and they curse us, and they hate us, and they stumble. What did the Jews stumble at? Why were the Jews turned away? What did they stumble at? Anybody remember? I’m running out of time. They stumbled at his flesh, brethren. They couldn’t believe that this man, Jesus Christ was the Son of God. It didn’t matter that he had the gospel. It didn’t matter that he had the word. It didn’t matter that he had the spirit. They couldn’t believe that he was the Son of God because of his flesh, and the same thing is happening today. They cannot believe that God is appearing in man in this hour. They won’t believe it. No matter what kind of sign you give them. Why? Because their hearts are hard and filled with darkness, and they love their evil deeds, and when you come up against them, the righteousness that’s appearing in you is showing up their evil deeds for what they are. Glory to God.
[AUDIO CUTS OUT] And shall betray one another and shall hate one another. When they cannot cause you to fall, brethren, they’re going to be so frustrated, they’re going to turn on somebody else. Did you ever see this? Think. You must’ve seen it in the world. Somebody attacked somebody. They can’t win. A man on his job. He can’t win with his boss. He comes home and he attacks his wife. It’s all through society. Think about it. You’ve got to see -- you’ve got to have seen it somewhere. They won’t be able to destroy you, brethren. They’re going to pray against you. They’re going to curse you. They’re going to do every witchcraft work that they know how to do, and you’re still going to be standing there. This ministry is still standing there. They’ve been -- they’ve shut it -- they’ve tried to shut it down. They’ve astral projected into these meetings. They’ve lied about me. They’ve worked witchcraft. They’ve cursed, they’ve bound and they’ve loosed, they’ve fasted and they’ve prayed, and we’re still standing here, and they can’t figure it out, and the scripture says they’re going to turn against one another out of sheer frustration and start eating each other’s flesh, and they shall hate one another, and what’s suggested in that they shall hate one another is that any Christ that was in them is so tread under the foot of their Adamic soul, they so love their sin, they’re so in agreement with the darkness in their mind that anything of Christ that’s in them is so tread down under the feet of the Adamic soul that they’re hating because Christ is love. They are fully manifested in their Adamic souls. So what good does it matter if you have the Holy Spirit? What good does it matter if you have even conceived Christ? If you have such a love of your evil deeds and your evil ways that Christ is tread under foot, he’s doing you virtually no good at all, and we’re told in the book of Hebrews there’s nothing left unto you but fiery judgment. The evil in you, the reprobate in you, the darkness in your mind is so strong that it’s overtaking the young Christ that may have appeared in you, and he, lying down under your feet in his weakened condition -- he’s young, he’s newly birthed, he’s -- I’m sorry -- newly conceived in utero, not strong enough to overtake Adam in you; he, nevertheless, has enough spiritual authority to rain down judgment on you, to weaken your Adamic soul by executing judgments against you that will weaken the Adamic soul and permit him to rise up and put the [AUDIO CUTS OUT] to rain down judgment on you to weaken your Adamic soul by executing judgments against you that will weaken the Adamic soul and permit him to rise up and put the Adamic soul under his feet. And we see it -- those -- a lot of us in this ministry are seeing it today, people that God gave several years to, of deliverance, of deep teaching, of all kinds of ministry, and they’re still so messed up, it just boggles my mind. And you know, let me just put this in here -- it doesn’t matter how messed up you are. The only thing that matters is that you’re moving. You’ve got to be making progress. You’ve got to be changing. You’ve got to be getting better, because you can’t take somebody that came to the Lord in a pretty decent condition an someone that you picked up with a [UNINTELLIGIBLE] and two years later or five years later say the person that started out 15 miles ahead of him is doing great and the other guy is still a mess, you can’t day that. The measurement is, are you progressing? I don’t care where you are. Are you moving in the right direction? That’s all that matters. Nothing else matters, because the turtle that’s moving in the right direction is going to finish the race, and the guy that’s lifted up in pride that looks like he’s got it together, he’s got the good job, he’s got the car, he’s got his health, he’s got a happy marriage, his kids are all right, he may not make it. God, at somewhere along the line, might say you’re not moving. There’s darkness in your mind, judgment, and he’s going to lose the marriage, and he’s going to lose the house, and he’s going to lose the kids, just like Job. So don’t look at people’s condition. Look at where they were and where they are now. Be wise, brethren. Don’t move in the ignorance of the world. The church is filled with the ignorance of the world. Glory to God.
OK. And they shall betray one another, and they shall hate one another.
Verse 11. “And many false prophets shall rise and shall deceive many.” Now that’s the second time he’s said it. He said it back in Verse 4, “Take heed that no man deceive you, for many shall come in my name saying I am Christ and shall deceive many,” -- “and many false prophets,” -- Verse 11 -- “shall rise and shall deceive many. He said it, and most Christians quote this scripture if it were possible, the very elect would be deceived, and they say it’s not possible. Brethren, I declare to you. It’s possible. I declare to you, in this late day, in these last days, it’s going to take more than trying the spirit to determine the false prophet. You’ve got to try the spirit, you’ve got to try the word, and you’ve got to try the character of the minister. God is shutting down the imputed anointing. He’s moving us into an age of holiness. The man has to have all three, all three. Now don’t worry about it. Now don’t worry about it.
God is -- God is bigger than our carnal minds, brethren. OK? He’s bigger than our carnal minds. How can I explain this to you? If there is a preacher out there, and his life isn’t in order, but it really is the spirit of God, he’s still under the imputed anointing, and God has ministry for you in that church, he’s going to blind you to his character. I know a lot of people that this happened to. He will blind you to this man’s character until you get everything that God wants you to get from that ministry, and then when it’s time for you to pull out, he’ll show you the sin in the man’s heart -- and we’re not talking about sin now, we’re talking about unrepented sin. Everybody’s got sin. We’re talking about unrepented sin. Now, brethren, I don’t care how anointed that ministry appears to be to you, in the hour that God comes to you in whatever way he comes to you and shows you the sin in that ministry, you better get on your face before God and say, Lord, are you telling me to get out? And I’ll take it a step further. I know some really sweet people that are involved in this, and they tell me God didn’t tell me to leave. They know the man’s in adultery. They know the man lies. They know the man cheats. They know he condemns people; he curses people. They know everything that he’s doing, and they stand there and they say God didn’t speak to me. How old are you, brethren? How old are you in God. He who doeth not righteousness nor loveth not his brother is not of God, and in the hour that God reveals it to you, you are responsible to make a judgment that God wants you out. Now if he hasn’t revealed it to you, don’t go getting condemned, if he hasn’t revealed it to you. There was ministry there for you. This church has got to get up on its feet. It’s not even crawling, it’s slithering on its belly. Glory to God.
Verse 12. “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Now we’ve pulled that apart a word at a time, and what we found out that it means is Because iniquity shall abound, because men shall love the evil in their own minds and in their true heart, they shall desire evil, that’s the abounding of the iniquity, because that shall happen, the love of the many shall wax cold. The agape love, the soul of the Lord Jesus Christ shall go under foot. That’s the treading under foot of the soul of Christ. Everyone that’s in the church has two souls. Only one can be on top, brethren. If you confess your sins and repent, you better believe Christ is on top. If you love your sin and you won’t repent, there’s a good chance that Christ is going to be tread underfoot, and from his prostrate position, he is going to rain judgment on your soul until he stand up again. Glory to God.
Verse 13. “But he that shall endure” -- “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be said.” I thought I was saved when I got the Holy Spirit. No you weren’t. You received the promise of salvation. And he who endures everything we’ve just been talking about for the last hour and a half until the end. What is the end? We have a whole message called the end of the commandment. What is the end? Anybody remember what the end is? Anybody? What? Godliness. Godliness and all godliness is in Christ. The end of everything is that Christ shall appear in you. So he that endureth until Christ appears shall be saved, because salvation is in the appearance of Christ and not in anything else. Salvation is not in the casting out of demons, brethren. I used to go to a church and they taught if you just keep casting out those demons -- cast them out, cast them out, cast them out, cast them out -- you’ll be OK. No, you’ll just die. The demons are the natural man. They’re an inherent part of the natural man. Something must be added to you. Christ. Glory to God. You just cast out evil and cast out evil and cast out evil, what you’re implying is that there is good in you too. Well, if there’s no Christ, there’s no good in you. There’s nothing good in you. You’ve got to get Christ. Everything in you is evil at its root.
OK. Verse 14. “And the gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all the non-Jews and then shall the end come.” Well what end is that? Every last man on the face of the Earth shall manifest Christ. And in the end, Jesus Christ shall offer up the kingdom unto the Father, and the Father shall be all and all. Glory to God.
Is anybody straining here? If you’re not, I’m going to take another few minutes to just go to Mark 13:8. There are a few scriptures that are different. Anybody pressed by this? Is it too much for you. I’m on a second message already, so let me do it.
Mark 13, Verse 8. OK. It’s just a little different over here. Starting up at Verse 5. “Take heed, lest any man deceive you, for many shall come in my name saying I am Christ and shall deceive many, and when ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, be not troubled, for such things must need be, but the end is not yet.” Christ hasn’t appeared yet.
Verse 8. “For gentile shall rise against gentile and believer against believer, and there shall be piercings through from one spiritual realm to another in many places,” and there shall be a great famine for the word and great trouble and heartache, and these are the beginnings of the process, the end of which Christ shall appear in you.
Verse 9. “But take heed for yourselves, for they shall deliver you up to councels” -- and I want to tell you that that’s happened to me, brethren. I was called before a councel of believers for manifesting the anointing. They didn’t recognize it for what it was, but that’s the reality of it. “For they shall deliver you up to councels, and in the synagogue,” -- what are the modern-day synogogs? Who knows what the modern-day synagogues are? The churches. Amen. “And in the synagogues,” in the churches, “ye shall be beaten. I was beaten with the cat of nine tails last Friday, and let me tell you something, brethren, it could’ve been in the natural. It hurt that bad. I had to get deliverance two or three times until I came out of it. You shall be beaten, brethren. They’re going to talk about you. They’re going to lie about you. They’re going to hate you in your heart, and you’re going to feel it in the spiritual realm of your soul. You’re going to be whipped as you become a spiritual man. You’re going to become sensitive to these things. “And you shall be brought before rulers,” -- the pastors of the churches -- “And kings for my sake for a testimony against them.
Has anyone come up against a pastor that was not manifesting Christ? The king of his own dominion. A few of us here have. And Jesus said that you’re going to -- it’s going to happen to you for a testimony against them. If you come up against someone that’s making himself a king in the church world, brethren, and you walk out of there, and your carnal mind says I was utterly defeated, what was this all about? You should know that you were there to witness against them, and Jesus Christ saw the witness. He saw Christ in you, and he saw sin in them. That’s why it’s happening to you. Brethren, it’s not going to be tolerable if you don’t have an understanding of why it’s happening to you. This is painful. I’m not lying to you. I’m not preaching you a cinderella story that’s going around in the kingdom message today. This thing is painful. It hurts. And if you’re going to survive it, you’re going to really need an understanding of what’s happening. It’s glorious. It’s glorious. You’re being used to try them, and the end of your pain is that Christ shall appear in you. You have to understand that. Glory to God.
Verse 10. “And the gospel must first be published among all nations” -- that’s the true gospel of the kingdom. It’s not the gospel of the cross, and it’s not the icky, gooky, sticky stuff that says everything is wonderful and just hang in there and Christ is going to appear in you. Well, everything is wonderful, you know, but not in the -- in the ultimate, it’s wonderful. Not this icky, gicky gospel that says we won’t talk about the devil. He’s not really even there. He doesn’t exist for us. I don’t know about you, brother, but he sure exists for me, and me thinks that you’re deceived in your mind. He’s real, and this thing is tough, and that message is a message without power. It’s the truth. It preaches the kingdom as it shall appear in the Earth. I believe it’s a true word, but there’s no power in that word to help people that are laboring under curses and demons and have problems in their life and don’t know how to deal with them and God. That message that promises what’s coming, God only knows when, has no power to help these people. And it has no power to help them when the judgements fall and they can’t figure out what’s going on. It’s a powerless message. They confess Christ but not the power, but the power thereof, they deny.
Verse 11. “But when they shall lead you, no thought beforehand what you shall speak, neither do ye premeditate.” I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in that spot. I’ve been in that spot. In a moment’s notice, I was before authorities, and in their hearts towards me was murder, and Christ manifested. Glory to God. Don’t try to do it with your own soul. Sit still and shut your mouth, and he’ll speak through you. Sit still. He wants to manifest, and if you try to manifest, you’re tripping him, and he’s not going to get into a boxing match with you in a crisis situation, and if you come out and you’ve been slaughtered, ask yourself, did you sit on Christ so that he couldn’t manifest and deliver you. Ask yourself. Maybe it’s true. Shut your mouth and let him manifest. He won’t fail you. “But whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye for it is not ye that speak but the Holy Ghost.” And brethren, he’ll do it. Just sit still. Sit still.
Verse 12. “Now the brother shall betray the brother to death and the father, the son.” Brethren, that’s just [AUDIO CUTS OUT] son. The brothers in the [AUDIO CUTS OUT] unto death. How’re they betraying them? They’re not telling them the truth. They’re not telling them the truth. They’re telling them they can’t fail. They’re telling them [AUDIO CUTS OUT] the kingdom no matter what, and I believe it’s true that all men shall be saved. The spiritual substance which you are shall be saved, but you cannot go out and willfully sin because you could lose your soul or your personality. In this glorious hour that Christ is appearing, you could lose your soul in the body that you’re in now. Your spiritual substance shall be saved, but you’re going to lose your house, brethren, and there was a whole doctrine burning through Long Island a few years ago. All men are going to be saved, just go out and do your thing, you can’t fail. Yes you can. You have to resist sin. You have to fight with your carnal mind not to do it. You have to cry up to Jesus to manifest so that he would put Satan in your mind under foot. You have to wage war by power of Almighty God. So brother shall betray brother to death. It’s happening right now. And the father, the son. The spiritual fathers, they’re just devouring the fruit of their own wombs. The people that’s rai- -- the that are being raised up in their own church. They’re not letting them manifest Christ. They’re crushing prophecy. They’re putting the people in bondage. They’re working witchcraft and mind control on them. The spiritual fathers are betraying the fruit that’s coming forth in the ministries, and they’re, in many instances, trying to kill them out of envy and pride.
The children shall rise up against their parents. I find most believers don’t even have a revelation of what rebellion is. They can’t even discern it when it rises up in them. Why? Because the teaching preachers have not taught them to discern rebellion. You see, one sin leads to another. One sin leads to another. They haven’t been taught. They haven’t been taught, brethren. Glory to God. And children shall rise up against their parents and shall cause them to be put to death. Glory to God. Hatred is murder. They shall kill them in their hearts.
Verse 13. “And ye shall be hated of all” -- that word men is in italics -- “Ye shall be hated of all.” -- That means you shall be hated of the satanic unconscious mind. You shall be hated of the human souls, and ye shall be hated of the unsaved people that have a spirit that has not been quickend by Christ. And the reason for it is for the namesake of Christ. It’s nothing about you. He said they hated him first, and surely, they’re going to hate you. Don’t think Christ is going to appear in you without you being hated, brethren. You are not going to dance into the kingdom, and if that’s what you’re being taught, you’ve bought a lie.
There’s a scripture where Jesus is talking about the parable of the seeds, and he says some people birth the Christ, but when persecution rises up, they can’t bear it, and they turn away from the things of God. It’s happening all over the church world. People have conceived Christ, and they’re being pursecuted, and they can’t bear it and they run away. I personally know people that have gone through this. Brethren, you’re supposed to overcome. You have to overcome. How? Through forgiveness? Through the love of God. Through praying for them. Hallelujah.
“And ye shall be hated of all.” the whole living soul is going to hate you. Why? Because Christ is an invading organism that is entered into this world system bent on destroying life as we now know it, and the living soul ruled by the spirit known as Satan is fighting for his life, and if Christ is appearing in you, you shall be hated by everyone in whom the living soul is manifested. Only those walking in the spirit of Christ on a day-to-day basis will love you, and even those people will find ungodly thoughts cropping up in their minds towards you. You must crush them. You must identify them as ungodly, evil, thoughts of the satanic mind and crush them. The whole living soul is going to hate you, brethren, and by those who love you, you’re going to know who has Christ in their heart, and you might be surprised. It might be some people that aren’t even in a deep walk with the Lord, that they’re a [?lure?] unto themselves. They have the [?lure?] of God written on their heart. Anyone that loves you, loves Christ.
I don’t know about you, but there are people that can’t even look at my eyes. The first time I meet them, they can’t look at me, and there are people -- believers and nonbelievers -- that just love me. There’s something of God in them. Hallelujah.
OK. Verse 13. “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake, but he that shall endure until the end,” -- the end of what? The end of the procedure which results in the appearance of Christ, the same shall be saved. Why? Because when Christ appears in you, he shall swallow up your soul, and your soul shall be saved. The salvation of the soul is in the appearance of Christ. It’s in the joining to Christ. The salvation of your soul is in the marriage of your soul to the Christ that has appeared in you. That’s his salvation. Glory to God.
“But when” -- Verse 14 -- “But when he shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel, the prophet, standing where it ought not, let him that readeth understand, then let them that be in Judea flee to the mountains.” That abomination -- I’m not going to take too much time on it, brethren -- but that abomination of desolation standing where it ought not. Brethren, it’s the carnal mind. It’s the carnal mind, and if it’s standing where it ought not, it means that Christ is under its feet. That’s what it means. Glory to God.
When that happens, let them that are in Judea -- if you’re in Christ, you’re in Judea, you better flee to the mountains, brethren. When you see your carnal mind so powerful that it’s standing where it ought not to be, you better flee into the soul of Christ, brethren. You better call on the name of the Lord and say my carnal mind is too powerful. I’m in sin. You better flee to Jesus so that he puts that carnal mind under your feet before it’s too late and there’s nothing left for you but judgment.
Verse 15. “And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house.” If you’re on the housetop, Christ is manifested in you. Don’t go back down. Don’t go back down. This is the hour, brethren, of the exchange of souls, and we talked about that. There’s a season for everything. There’s a season for everything. We are on the verge of entering into the season where the power is going to be imparted to us to propel ourselves out of our Adamic soul into the soul of Christ. When this happens, brethren, those that are in Christ flee to Christ. Those that are on the housetops, if you’re living out of Christ, don’t go back down to Adam. Neither enter therein to take anything out of his house. Remember Lot’s wife. Don’t desire the things of this world. Brethren, entering into Christ means giving up the things of this world. Don’t even desire them. Don’t look back. You could lose it in this lifetime. Your spiritual substance shall be saved, but you could be left ashamed in this lifetime. There’s going to be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Verse 16. “And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.” The garment -- what garment is that? That’s the garment of his body. Don’t worry about this body. Flee to Christ, brethren.
Verse 17. “But woa to them that are with child and to them that give suck in those days.” Now what is this talking about? All of this is happening under great tribulation. There’s going to be great pain, and this is not just natural women that are pregnant, it is believers that have conceived the Christ who was very imature and is not moving in great power in their life. They’re going to get caught up in a spiritual warfare, brethren, that’s going to be very, very viscious. That’s what this is talking about. And pray that your fight be not in the winter [AUDIO CUTS OUT] Brethren, when you have the spirit of God, it’s the summer. That means there’s great tribulation coming. It’s going to be in the minds of the people. It’s also going to be in the world, and if you get caught in it with Christ not appearing in you or not having been conceived in you. If you are living in the coldness of the winter of the darkness of the carnal mind, how are you going to survive this thing? You’ve got to get into Christ, and how do you get into Christ? You start thinking with his mind. And how do you start thinking with his mind? You’ve got to hear this thing preached, brethren. What they’re preaching out there today is going to kill you as sure as someone’s going to step on you like you’re an ant. Glory to God.
“For in those days shall be affliction such as was not from the beginning of the creation, which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved.” And how is he going to shorten those days, brethren? But for the very elect’s sake, whom he has chosen, he has shortened those days. He’s going to shorten the days because Christ is going to appear in you. That’s the end of the conflict. I don’t care what’s going on in the world, when Christ appears in you, it’s the end of the conflict for you. You’re under total protection. Hallelujah.
Verse 21. “And if any man shall say to you, lo, here is Christ or, lo, he is there, believe him not, for false Christs and false prophets shall rise and shall show signs and wonders.” They’re going to show signs and wonders, brethren. Why? To seduce, if it were possible, even the elect, but take ye heed, behold, I have told you these things. I’m not going to go on. Well, for in those days after the tribulation, the sun of your spirit shall be darkened, and the moon of your soul shall not give her light. Why? Because Christ shall appear in you, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in the heavens shall be shaken, and then they shall see the son of man coming in the clouds with great power. Where? In your soul, brethren. In your soul. So the tribulation is going to be in your mind, and it’s also going to be -- you know, you’re going to be confronting people. People are going to be confronting you. This thing is not separated. It’s not only in the world, and it’s not only in your mind, because as Christ appears in you, you’re going to be coming up against other people. You’re going to have confrontations with people, and God is going to require you to manifest his spirit no matter what they say or do to you. Glory to God.
Any questions on any of this today? Hallelujah. Anybody? OK. Glory to God. OK. Just a minute. Let me put this on the message. Hold on. I’m tripping on the microphone here and everything. What am I doing here?
I didn’t catch what you said 25 was? I know you stated what it said before.
OK. Verse 25? Glory to God. Verse 25. “And the stars of heaven shall fall.” Those are the spiritual men. Those are the spiritual men. Stars are spiritual men that are not serving God. They’re coming down. When we studied that in earlier chapters of the book of Revelation -- I think it was the fifth seal -- we drew the conclusion that those were the ministers that were preaching by the imputed anointing and would not -- would not yield to Christ. They’re coming down. Did I answer your question? OK. Glory to God.
