I have a feeling that that Scripture -- I know that Scripture is really talked about as, like, we should never stop assembling together. But people that are really called, sometimes, are alone. And to say that Scripture, you know -- I mean, because, does it real- -- does it mean that? What does it mean when it says -- like, if we stop -- if we don't have anywhere to go, it's like we don't feel, you know, the spirit calling us to a certain place, and we're out in the wilderness, and we're reading the Word. Are we disobeying the Word by not assembling ourselves together like that Scripture? You know the Scripture I'm talking about?
See, this is the problem that we have with almost everything -- every question we are going to ask. It is legal if it is the Spirit of God doing it to you. It is illegal if it is your soul man. If it is your soul man refusing to fellowship, you are breaking the law of God. But if it is the Christ in you isolating you, He has the right to do it to you, and there is no sin.
So -- but the verse that people would use to say, like -- I mean, recently I had someone say that to me, that if you don't assemble with anybody, then you're -- even though you're saying you're going to get into the Word, you're disobeying the Word.
Unless God has called you to isolation. God continuously breaks His own law. Jesus continuously flew in the face of the Pharisees. He broke the Sabbath laws continuously. Jesus Christ will break His own law any time He pleases. And when Adam rises up to condemn the believer that's in his will in an area that, to the carnal mind, looks like he's breaking the law, that person is killing Christ.
Yeah. All I know is I'd rather -- no matter what that condemnation might be from that believer, which I believe is -- I can te- -- I'm beginning to tell the difference when somebody's using the Scripture and they're in the Adam.
I'd rather be in Christ, no ma- -- even if they're -- they'll condemn me and I lose [CROSSTALK] they think that -- whatever they think about me.
That's how [?I'd be?].
I'd rather be in Christ. I mean, that's more comfort, then, to me than to have these friends that [CROSSTALK]
-- [?out of the letter?].
They'll kill you.
They'll -- you know what they'll do? You know what happens in situations like that, if you are a spiritual person and you yield to the mind of a soul man -- of the soul man? Almost invariably, it's just a matter of time that you have now become a soul man because you've yielded to these people, and they've become a spiritual man, and you're locked out, happens all the time. It happened to Esau. He sold his birthright. He yielded to another mind. He knew it was wrong, what he did, but he yielded to another mind. And that other mind, the one who was the usurper, the thief, he inherited the promises, and Esau was locked out. And the Scripture says, even though he travailed and much -- with much tears, he was not granted another chance.
That is a word, today, to the spiritual man. The soul man will rise up in whatever human being permits him to rise up, to try to drag you down from your high place. You are likened to Elijah sitting up on the mountain. And the soldiers are coming saying, come down, come down. And if you come down, it's really har- -- I can't tell you you can't ever get back up again. I can't tell you that. But once you come down, it's real hard to get back up again. And it's very common that you're sitting on the floor and you watch the guys that pulled you down just go zooming right ahead, very common. That's a heavy word. It's the truth.
I tell you the truth.
Isaiah 63, recap, Verses 1 to 2 and two thirds of Verse 3. "Who is this one who is separated from his unrighteous, violent and treacherous, sin-stained wife, which is his flesh? That woman who is pregnant, because the beast which is dwelling within the multitude of the human beings which he has generated has had sexual intercourse with her. It is I, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is saving the living soul from death by arranging her many members in the correct moral order. Why is Adam, the treacherous wife that you've been intimate with, appearing in this world system as a man? Because I'm the only human being which has brought His Adamic soul into submission."
This is the Lord Jesus Christ speaking. "Because I'm the only human being which has brought His Adamic soul into submission to the Father, by overcoming her military strength, and each and every one of the people, which are My companions, is nothing in comparison to Me, therefore, because of My passion for My wife, I shall oppress the many members of the living soul and lead them forth."
You may recall that at our last meeting I added the words at the very end there. I just said, "And lead [?her?] forth." I added the words to the soul of Christ, making the phrase read, "And I shall lead them forth to the soul of Christ." But as I studied for today's message, the Lord told me that that word -- that that phrase should not be there. It's going to be in the beginning of the work we're doing tonight. So I didn't -- you may have heard it on the message last week, but I took those words out, "To be led forth to the soul of Christ." I took "to the soul of Christ" off for that reason. We'll be putting it in another place with a different context to it.
I just want to comment on the fact that I did add those few words, "To the soul of Christ." "And I shall lead her forth," and I added the words, "to the soul of Christ." And I want to tell you again, those of you that may be questioning, I didn't do anything that the translators of the amplified Bible have not done. It is true in the Greek, but it is much more true in the Hebrew, that, for whatever reason -- I honestly don't know whether it's the Hebrew language or whether it's the way the prophecy comes forth, but there could be one or two words and 50 or 15 or 50 words left out, that if you have the revelation of the gospel of the kingdom in your heart and you hear these few words, you know what the Lord is saying. And there's so much that's not written down in the letter, but if you know the words, you know that it goes together.
For example, if I were to say to you, and Jesus shed His blood. If you read that in a book, and Jesus shed His blood, would not you know that Jesus Christ shed His blood, that He was crucified, that He hung on the cross for six hours, that the soul just parted His garments, that the veil of the temple was rent from the top to the bottom, that there was a great earthquake? Do you not know all these things? Well, if you were translating from one language to another and you wanted the people to understand, can you understand, when you read the -- how when you read the words, and Jesus was crucified, that you would continue in explanation? And that is what amplification is, and that is what the amplified Bible translators have done. Although, in all honesty, I don't know what spirit they've done it by. I really don't know, but this is what I do, in particular, when I'm translating in the Hebrew, OK.
So those few words that I added -- we were talking about Jesus Christ leading the living soul, and I just put in where He's leading them to. And does anybody here dispute the Jesus Christ is leading His people to His life in heaven? OK, so that's what I did. It's called amplification, and it's legitimate, and it's part of translator's license.
Glory to God. OK, we're continuing with the phrase -- it's the third third of Verse 3 of Isaiah 63. And the phrase reads, "And their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments." Now, the Hell and damnation people want you to believe that Jesus Christ is being very destructive and malicious towards His people and He's drawing their blood, and He's going to sprinkle their blood upon His clothes. And there's going to be so much blood that it's going to be up until the horse bridles. That means there's going to be 5 feet of blood flowing through the streets. Now, to have 5 feet of blood flowing through the streets, you have to have a tidal wave of blood. It has to be like a river of blood flowing at a depth of 5 feet. Do you know how many people you have to kill to do that?
I rebuke you, Hell and damnation. I rebuke you, you lying devils that make our God a monster. I condemn you. I curse you at your root, and I command you to dry up and die, that the truth of the word of God might come forth, which is His love for us.
OK, we're dealing with the phrase, "And their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments." The word there, in the Hebrew, is Strong's 846. There is no -- I'm sorry, that word -- that number 846 is in the Greek.
I've told you this before. I'll repeat it for this message. Frequently, when it comes to simple words like you, me, there or thy, they mean the same exact thing in the Hebrew as in the Greek, so Strong's only puts the information in one language. This word there, there is no Hebrew number for it, just the Greek number, meaning that the meaning is the same in the Greek and the Hebrew.
And in the Greek, the number is 846, and Strong tells us that it can be also translated my. It can be translated there, or it can be translated my. So we see that the King James translators, once again, had the option, under translator's license, of choosing the pronoun, of deciding who this Scripture is talking about.
Now, I declare to you they made a wrong choice. And for our purposes this evening, we are going to translate that word, there, my. And I'm suggesting to you that the Lord Jesus Christ is talking about sprinkling His blood. He's sprinkling His blood. Have you not heard of the expression, you're under the blood, you're covered with the blood? Have you not heard about the spirit being poured out from upon high? Have you not heard of the Shekinah Glory? Do you not know that the blood is an expression to describe the life of Christ. And have we not been teaching in these meetings, recently, that the Lord God Himself shall scatter or sprinkle forth from the grapes when he pierces through the grape skins?
And, in fact, the next word, blood, "And their blood," is Strong's 5332, and that is exactly what it means. It means juice, juice of the grapes. Liquor, that which comes out from a fruit when it's pressed. And it is typifying that which is scattered from grapes when they are trodden in the press. That's what this word blood means. It's from the root 5331, which means splendor, glory, sincerity, truth, faith, confidence, perpetuity, eternity, forever, perfection, completeness. Do you know anyone to whom all these words refer, other than the Lord Jesus Christ? This blood -- this Hebrew word translated blood is the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is not their blood, brethren. It is His blood, because we already know that their blood has fallen from the prior verses, that the blood of the living soul is wicked and treacherous. There is nothing glorious, perfect or complete about it.
And if that hasn't convinced you, let me also tell you that this is the only time that this word, Strong's 5332, is translated blood. Every other time, the Hebrew word used to -- the Hebrew word used is translated blood, it is Strong's 1818, and that word means blood, as that which one sheds to cause death. So, once again, we see the King James translators have taken a very extreme translator's license. They have taken a word that obviously means the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and they have declared it to be the fallen, treacherous, wicked blood of the living soul.
Hallelujah. Glory to God. The word sprinkled is Strong's 5137, and it means that, sprinkled, or to be sprinkled, or to fill anyone with joy. This is the word used to describe the holy sprinkling of blood in the Levitical sacrifices. And in Isaiah 52:15, which is openly acknowledged as a prophecy of Messiah, this word speaks of the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ, the same word. Gesenius says when this word, translated sprinkled, is followed by Strong's 5921, which it is in this verse, the phrase can be translated, on a count of something.
And Gesenius goes on to say that Isaiah 52:15 can be translated, "So shall He fill many people with joy because of Himself." The phrase, "Christ shall sprinkle Himself," is speaking of the purifying judgment of the lake of fire, which brings us to full stature. We're dealing with, "And their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments," and I'm suggesting to you that this is saying -- it's Jesus speaking, and He's saying, My blood shall be sprinkled upon, and that word sprinkled, we have found other Scriptures where it is talking about the sprinkling of the blood of Christ. It's used to describe the sprinkling of the sacrificial blood in the Levitical sacrifices, and I just gave you a Scripture in Isaiah. I guess I should have read that Scripture to you. Let me read you Isaiah 55:15.
You said 52.
You're right. Thank you, 52:15. "So shall He sprinkle many nations," and in my open Bible, there's a big star next to that, acknowledging it as a prophecy of Messiah. And if you read the previous verses, you'll see that it's a prophecy of Messiah. So the word is saying that Messiah shall sprinkle many nations. And what it's saying is that He's going to scatter His life over the nations. And I'm suggesting to you that this word is describing the scattering of His life that comes forth when He circumcises the carnal mind and is pressed out of the carnal minds of the first fruits company, forming the lake of fire over the creation.
Now, we have a Scripture that sounds very similar to this in Joel. You might want to turn there. We're going to be in Joel for a while. It is not the same word, but Joel, Chapter 2, Verse 28 and 29 sound very similar to this, that Jesus Christ is going to sprinkle Himself. And this is what it sounds like. "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out of My spirit upon all flesh; and you sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out of My spirit."
Now, I want to suggest to you that the phrase, "Christ shall sprinkle Himself," is speaking of the purifying judgment of the lake of fire. Sprinkling means scattering. Sprinkling, scattering, it's the same Hebrew word. And this word is referring to the lake of fire which brings us to full stature. This is the imparted anointing. The Scripture in Joel, that I just read to you, however, is speaking out both the imputed anointing and the imparted anointing.
And just to put it on the message -- I know everybody here knows this, but let's get it on the message. The imputed anointing is the anointing of God that is given without repentance. It is given. It is powered authority with God that is given to an unregenerate man, someone that has said, yes, I repent, but has not repented with regard to the individual character defects in his life. And aside from that, repentance is not complete until we change. There is a difference between confession of sin and repentance. Repentance can be in two stages. One can feel remorse. One can feel conviction. But the word inherent in the word repentance is conviction and change. Your repentance is not complete until you have resisted that thing and Jesus Christ has imparted the power to you to stop doing it. So that is the imputed anointing. It is power and authority with God that is given to men whose personality is still fallen.
And the imparted anointing is the very Christ Himself manifesting through a human being. And as Christ ascends in any one of us, we have areas and moments in which we experience His righteousness and express His righteousness. Until we're in full stature, we're in and out. But there is a power and authority that goes with the Christ that's being formed in you. That is a different anointing and a different authority than that which is given to men whose personality has not even begun to be worked upon by the Lord.
So what am I saying? This being sprinkled, this expression that we find several times in the Old Testament, to be sprinkled or to be sprinkled with the blood of Christ, is referring to the lake of fire judgment. It's referring to the scattering of His blood when the grapes are crushed, and that grape is your carnal mind. The Scripture in Joel that says, "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out of My spirit," that word pour out is not referring to the lake of fire judgment. It is not referring to scattering. It is in fact referring to pouring forth, and it's talking about an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
And most of us here have experienced some form of outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We've been in a group, in a meeting, where He's poured His spirit out. That's what we're talking about. It is the imputed anointing. It is the blessing of God because He has willed to bless us, and for no other reason. It is not resulting from the fact that Christ has been conceived in you, that Christ has been formed in you, that Christ has grown to full stature in you and that this glorious spirit, the Lord Jesus Christ, has stood up and crushed your carnal mind. That's not why there's been an outpouring. There's been an outpouring because God has sovereignly chosen to visit you.
We're going to do these two verses in Joel because I -- the Lord told me to do it. That's why we're going to do it. And we're going to start with, "And it shall come to pass" -- I just want to apologize for stopping after 5 minutes in Isaiah 63, but the Lord told me to do it. I hope I haven't confused you. And we're going to go on with it.
I've -- this is a very exciting Alternate Translation here. Starting with Joel, Chapter 2, Verse 28, "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out of My spirit upon all flesh." The phrase, it shall come to pass, is one Hebrew word, Strong's 1961. And it can also be translated -- the same word can also be translated to show oneself, to reveal oneself, to show what you're really made out of. I Samuel 4:9 says, "Quit yourselves," or behave yourselves or act like men and fight, and that's that same Hebrew word translated, "it shall come to pass."
I Samuel 18:17 says, "Only be thou valiant for me, and fight the Lord's battles." It's the same idea. I don't know who's speaking here. I didn't write it down. But whoever is speaking here is saying show yourself valiant. Show yourself brave. Show that you've got what it takes. It's the same Hebrew word translated it shall come to pass.
The word afterward, "It shall come to pass afterward," is Strong's 310, and it's speaking of place, of location. It's speaking of that which is behind, that which is in the background. It's also speaking about extremity. And in the Hebrew language, the word extremity is applied to the Lord Jesus Christ. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that. The word extremity is applied to Jehovah. [UNINTELLIGIBLE] applied to Jehovah. He is, as far as you go, in any direction, up, down, sideways or backwards, the extremity will be God.
Genesis 22:13 says, "And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught." That word behind is the same Hebrew word translated afterward. Exodus 3:1 says, "Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert." This word -- this Hebrew word translated backside is the same Hebrew word translated afterward in Joel 2:28. Judges 18:12 says, "And they went up, and pitched in Kirjathjearim, in Judah: wherefore they called that place Mahanehdan unto this day: behold, it is behind Kirjathjearim." That Hebrew word translated behind is the same Hebrew word, #310, translated afterward.
So what am I saying? I'm suggesting to you that this word should be translated -- this word in Joel 2:28 should be translated the hidden parts, the backwood place, the extremity, that which is behind of God's spirit, the hidden parts of God or the unseen parts of God or the part of God which has not formally been revealed to men.
"And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out of My spirit upon all flesh." The word, pour out of, is Strong's 8710, and it means to be poured out as a drink offering. And this is referring to the soul life of the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you've been studying with us for a while, you may remember that the Lord Jesus Christ, the spiritual Son of God is the Lamb which was slain from the foundation of the Earth. His spiritual life was slain so that this creation could be formed. Jesus Christ, the soul man, was crucified. His soul life, His Adamic soul life was crucified and glorified so that it could be poured out from on high. His spiritual blood could be poured out from on high upon us and root in our hearts and be a ransom for us, for the life of the ages. And because that blood is in us, we should live and not die. So first His spirit died at the foundation of the Earth, and His soul died at the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ.
And this word, "To be poured out," is referring to the death of the soul of the Lord Jesus Christ, of course -- His soul and His human body of course. Thank you, Jesus. Glory to God.
"And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out of My spirit upon all flesh." The word all is Strong's 3605. We've dealt with this before. It can -- it means that whole. It can also be translated the whole or all of, the whole of flesh, the whole of mankind, the whole of the creation, all of it. And the word flesh is Strong's 1320, and it's used of all living creatures, not just man. It's the whole creation. The whole creation is going to be covered by the overflowing flood of the life of God.
Now, I know in Acts 2, Peter said that the anointing that came down upon the apostles was that which Joel has spoken of, but I don't know about you. But I don't see the power of God or the spirit of God flowing over this whole creation, so there's something that I don't understand, but the Lord explained it to me today. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
Alternate Translation, the first quarter of Joel 2:28, "And I shall pour out" -- this is the Lord speaking. "And I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation." Glory to God. "And I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation."
Continuing with, "And your sons and your daughters shall prophecy." The word prophecy is Strong's 5012, 5-0-1-2, and it does in fact mean prophecy. Glory to God. The word sons is 1121, 1-1-2-1. This Hebrew word is sometimes used of children of both sexes. It could be translated sons or children of both sexes. The word your is not in the Hebrew. The King James translators added it in. And the word daughters of -- the word daughters is Strong's 1323, and this is referring to daughters of men, specifically human women as opposed to the sons of God. And I'm going to suggest to you that the spiritual significance here is that the word sons is referring to spiritual males, in relationship to Jesus Christ, and the word daughters is referring to spiritual females, in relationship to Jesus Christ.
And I'm sorry, church world, if you think that you've already been joined to His spirit, but that is not true. You're in the process of being joined to His spirit, because he who is joined to the Lord is one's spirit. And if the spirit that raised Christ from dea- -- from the dead was dwelling in you, you wouldn't have the problems that you have. It hasn't happened to you yet. You are in the process of. It has not happened to you yet.
So we're not talking about human bodies here, but we're talking about one's relationship to God. And we know whether we're or a son or a daughter by measuring whether or not He's appearing in us or the extent to which He's appearing in us or the basis upon which He's appearing on -- in us. Is it an imputed anointing? Is it a gift that is without repentance? Are we still desperately wicked and yielding to that wickedness in our heart, thinking that we're going to fly away to heaven and walk on streets of gold? Or has the Lord already started to bring us into obedience and to chasten us for out imperfections and bring forth the peaceable fruit of His righteousness in us? If you are being chastened, brethren, you are a son. Glory to God.
Alternate Translation, second quarter of Joel 2:28. "And spiritual men as well as spiritual women shall prophesy."
Well, what does that mean? "And spiritual men as well as spiritual women shall prophesy." What is he talking about? He's talking about the gift of prophecy, which is imputed. Spiritual women have the gift of prophecy. They are anointed to prophecy without repentance. They usually don't know what they're saying. The word comes out without their agreement. Their word, which can be glorious, does not come forth from a personal knowledge of their own soul, but they are a chosen vessel through which the Lord will speak His words. The son who prophecies is the believer in whom Christ is being formed, who speaks the words of God with knowledge, with wisdom, with understanding and from experience, from the experiences his Father brought him through.
And the spiritual women that prophesy from the floor of the church are obvious. How do I know they're obvious? Well, all of a sudden, you'll hear somebody yell, thus saith the Lord. And hopefully it is the spirit of the Lord, and everybody listens to the word of the Lord. But when the son prophecies, brethren, he doesn't usually say, thus saith the Lord. He might, from time to time, but the more mature he is and the more he's able to handle and deal with the problem at hand, the less likely he is to say, thus saith the Lord. And a son will speak with the wisdom and authority of God in areas where he is qualified. And if you can't discern that it's Christ speaking through him, you're going to miss what God said to you. So if you used to prophecy all the time and you hardly prophecy at all anymore, before you panic, ask the Lord if He isn't bringing you into the prophecy of the Son.
And I remind you of Hebrews 1:1, which says that in times past, God spoke through the prophets. But now, in the new age of His life, He speaks through His Son. And I declare to you this is not speaking about the gift of prophecy which is brought forth by spiritual women on the floor of the church. And that is a blessed gift. It is a wonderful gift, but it is a gift that is given without repentance. Hallelujah. Thank you, Jesus.
Glory to God. Continuing with, "Your old men shall dream dreams." Now, God's going to pour out of His spirit. Spiritual men are going to prophesy. Spiritual women are going to prophesy, and old men are going to dream dreams. The word translated, old men -- the Hebrew word translated, old men, is Strong's 2205, and it means chief men or fathers. This word can also be translated to describe an old nation which has become weak.
Isaiah 47:6 says, "I was wroth with my people" -- the Lord speaking. "I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst show them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid the yoke." That Hebrew word translated ancient is the same Hebrew word translated old men, and it's talking about an old man that has grown so week that a yoke has been put upon him.
And I'm suggesting to you that the old men of Joel 2:28 is the present fivefold ministry, which is -- had the imputed anointing of God, and there have been many men of God that have been powerful under this imputed anointing, but that they are waxing old and that they shall shortly find themselves utterly powerless. Why? Because the sons of God, with the imparted anointing, are arising on the scene. Only those with eyes to see and ears to hear recognize them, and by and large, most of the church world not only has no idea that they exist, but if they come in contact with them, usually reject them and think evil of them.
I'll say it again. I'm suggesting to you that the old men that are dreaming dreams are the present or the temporary fivefold ministry which is a type of that which is to come. And what is coming? The Melchizedek priesthood.
Well, why would they be dreaming dreams? Let's find out. This Hebrew word translated dream is Strong's 2472, and Gesenius says it's used to describe a trifle or a light thing. Ecclesiastes 5, Verse 7 says, "For in the multitude of dreams and many words there are also diverse vanities: but fear thou God." And the intention of that Scripture is ungodly dreams. "For in the multitude of dreams," and a lot of talking, "there are also diverse vanities," vanities referring to soulish things. And then the warning, "But fear thou God."
So these dreams that these old men are dreaming, they're not godly dreams. What has happened to them? The Spirit of God has withdrawn and has instructed them to submit to the new fivefold -- the new and the truly only legitimate fivefold ministry that is appearing in the Earth, and they have refused to do it. They refuse to heed the word. They refuse to acknowledge the government of God. They have refused to accept the fact that they have been replaced. And the dreams that they dream are now by a spirit other than the Spirit of God. He has left them, and they're blaming Satan.
Alternate Translation, the third quarter of Joel, Chapter 2, Verse 28. "The temporary fivefold ministry, which is to be replaced by the sons of God, shall dream dreams by a criminal spirit. The temporary fivefold ministry, which is to be replaced by the sons of God, shall dream dreams which are generated by a criminal spirit."
Continuing with, "Your young men shall see visions." The Hebrew word translated young men, Strong's 970, means young man, young warrior. This word denotes a young man of mature age but who is unmarried. He's old enough to be married, but he's not married, and he's a hero. And I'm suggesting to you that this word is referring to the spiritual male eunuchs for Christ. Remember, the church and the world sees them as male, but in relation to the Father, they are female. They are virgins for Christ. They are not fornicating with this world or the things of this world. They are male to us, but to God, they are his virgins. Hallelujah.
The word to see, we've had that word many times. It simply means to see in the realm of the spirit. And the word visions -- the Hebrew word translated visions is Strong's 2377, and it means divine vision or revelation, especially prediction. Prediction is something different from prophecy. Prophecy is the word of the Lord, whatever He wants to say to you. Prediction is that which will occur at a future date. Prediction frequently works with prophecy, but they are different, and many people think prophecy is prediction. Prophecy is not prediction. Although, sometimes they appear together. So this word, visions, it means a prediction, a revelation of the word of God, an oracle. And an oracle is the spoken message of God, of the type that we find in the prophets, in our Bible. It is a word that comes straight from the mind of God in the believer. It is not a gift from prophecy.
One of the primary differences between the gift of prophecy and a prophecy brought forth as an oracle or by a son is that, most of the time, the prophecy brought forth by the oracle or the son is very somber, very serious, frequently warning -- a warning frequently, frequently of disaster and unhappy things. The pro- -- the gift of prophecy that's brought forth by the daughter, by the spiritual female, is ho- -- talks about the blessings of God and the love of God and how God's going to bless and take care of you. And if a son stands up in a church that's been exposed to women prophesying for a long time, that if a son stands up and prophesies a true word of God with a serious warning, he's taken down as a false prophet. I tried the spirit on that prophecy, brother. It's not God. Did you ever hear anyone say that? You better try the spirit and not the words. Try the spirit and not the words. God speaks warning. God speaks judgment. He most certainly does.
And if you're wondering about the Scripture that says a woman shouldn't prophesy, I remind you that the whole Scripture says a woman shouldn't prophesy unless her head is covered. If you are a spiritual daughter to whom the gift of prophecy has been imparted, your head is covered by the Lord Jesus Christ. You are covered by the spirit who is speaking through you. And if you have opened your mouth to speak and it is not the Lord Jesus Christ speaking through you, you have yielded to or submitted to or committed adultery with an angel. And we've had teachings recently that have revealed that there are good angels and evil angels. The good angel is the Lord Jesus Christ, and the evil angels are the natural man or the mind of man or the spirit of Cain or the carnal mind or the spirit of anti-Christ.
If you are a spiritual daughter and you have many spiritual weaknesses and you are lacking knowledge in many areas, only speak the word of prophecy when the Lord Jesus Christ comes upon you. Do not yield to the urges of your carnal mind, which might tempt you to speak up out of your own heart.
And I saw this happen. I witnessed it. A whole congregation witnessed it. The pastor was out of town, and there had been something -- it was a true problem in the church that had been bothering this man for a long time, and I believe it was unconscious. I don't believe It was contrived, but he brought forth a prophecy from his own heart, which rebuked somebody in the church. And everybody with any form or any degree of spiritual maturity in the church recognized it as a false prophecy. An angel, his own natural man, his own carnal mind had risen up, and he had prophesied, and this was a natural man. He had prophesied with his head uncovered. Jesus Christ is the cover of our head. He is our cover, and if he is not the one speaking through us, it is an angel, the angel which is our natural man.
Alternate Translation, the fourth quarter of Joel 2:28. "Your spiritual virgins shall see visions from God and predict future events, and they shall faithfully repeat and explain God's messages to men. Your spiritual virgins shall see visions from God and predict future events, and they shall faithfully repeat and explain God's messages to men."
Message 49, Part 1 discusses how the sons of God shall faithfully repeat God's messages to men. And we have a bit of a discussion on that message, how when someone tries to impart the word of God to another human being, that person, having a carnal mind that is still in a position of dominion, how that word of God becomes perverted. When someone sits under a teacher that's bringing forth -- if even it's not 100 percent pure, but if it's a 90 percent pure word and they go out and repeat it in a perverted way, what has happened is that that pure word has passed through their carnal mind, and it has been corrupted. But the sons of God shall faithfully repeat the word of the Lord that is coming out of the realm of the spirit in a spiritual form. And it's going to come out of their mouth in a way that the people can understand it without losing one iota of the intent that the Lord wants to impart to His people. And these are the young men that Joel was talking about.
Glory to God. Let me read that whole verse for you. " And I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation, and spiritual men as well as spiritual women shall prophesy. The temporary fivefold ministry, which is to be replaced by the sons of God, shall dream dreams which are generated by a criminal spirit. Your spiritual virgins shall see visions from God and predict future events, and they shall faithfully repeat and explain God's messages to men." Glory to God
Going on with Joel, Chapter 2, Verse 29. "And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit." The word servants can also be translated slaves. It's Strong's 5650, and this Hebrew words means the servants of a king. This word is also sometimes translated, God's ambassador and friend. The word handmaids is Strong's 8198, and it means a household servant who tends to the family. And I'm going suggest to you that a slave is one who recognizes -- a slave or a servant is one who recognizes the sons of God, submits to their teaching and ministry and becomes a spiritual man after God's government is established in the Earth.
God is telling us that He's going to pour out His spirit. The fivefold ministry's going to lose their power. The sons of God are going to appear. And when the anointing flows out from the sons of God, millions and billions of people that could not receive Christ before are going to be touched by His spirit. And of those people in the Earth that are not in full stature, there are going to be two categories of people, one called servant. They're still going to be a natural man. They're not going to be a son of God yet, but they're going to recognize the government of God when it appears, and they're going to submit to their ministry and teaching, and they're going to start moving into spiritual things and be a spiritual man. And there's another category called handmaids, another group of people that will recognize the sons of God and also submit to their teaching and their ministry. But they will not be as spiritual as the servant. They will be carnal but still under the teaching of the sons of God. And my Bible says that the Lord's going to pour out His spirit upon them too.
Hallelujah. All human beings will fall into one of four categories after God's government appears in the Earth, unbeliever, carnal believer, spiritual believer or son of God in full stature.
Alternate Translation, Joel, Chapter 2, Verse 28. "And I shall also pour out of the hidden part" -- I guess that's Verse 29. I'm sorry. "And I shall also pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the carnal and spiritual human beings who recognize and submit to the government I shall establish in the Earth, saith the Lord. And I shall also pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the carnal and spiritual human beings who recognize and submit to the government I shall establish in the Earth"
And I'm going to remind you, I've told you this before, that out of everyone in the church today that's serving Christ or not serving Christ -- or if you're in the church in any manner, shape or form, even if you're moving in some measure of the imparted anointing, when Christ stands up in full stature, when the first fruits stand up, if you are not a part of that company, I don't care how anointed you are, if you're not in full stature, you will be lumped together with the remainder of the church world who is not in full stature. And you will either be a servant or a handmaid, but you're no longer going to have -- you're no longer going to be in the category of the son of God. If you don't s- -- do you understand what I'm saying? If you don't stand up in full stature, you will be a part of the people of the company that are subject to the ministry of the sons of God, no matter how anointed or gifted you think you are right now. And you may very well have a measure of the imparted anointing. I'm not saying that you don't.
What I am saying is that if the Lord Jesus Christ does not choose to increase you to full stature, at the time of the manifestation of the first fruits of the sons of God, you will fall into the two categories we just discussed, servant of God or handmaid of God, and you will not be in the governing force of God's government at that time in your life. I'm not telling you that you cannot enter in later on. I don't have any of the details about how it's going to work, but I know that God loves you and that all things will work for your good and that you should waste no time with ungodly, negative thoughts of any kind. You should not be drawing any negative conclusions from what I'm preaching to you. This is a glorious word. If you're ready, you're going up. If you're not ready, you're not going up, but you're still going to get there. Just serve God and be faithful.
Alternate Translation, Joel, Chapter 2, verses 28 and 29. "And I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation, and spiritual men as well as spiritual women shall prophesy. The temporary fivefold ministry, which is to be replaced by the sons of God, shall dream dreams, which are generated by a criminal spirit. Spiritual virgins shall see visions from God and predict future events, and they shall faithfully repeat and explain God's messages to men. And I shall also pour out of the hidden parts of my spirit upon the carnal mind and spiritual human beings who recognize and submit to the government I shall establish in the Earth, saith the Lord."
So this is what the prophet Joel was saying in Chapter 2, verses 28 to 29. Now, we are going to try -- or I am going to try, Lord willing, to relate this to Isaiah -- to the end of Isaiah 63, Verse 3, where we read about the Lord Jesus Christ sprinkling Himself as opposed to the Lord pouring out of His spirit. So we were saying that the phrase, "Christ shall sprinkle Himself," is speaking of the purifying judgment of the lake of fire, which brings us to full stature. This is the imparted anointing. But that the above Scriptures from Joel are speaking about both the imputed and the imparted anointing. Joel is saying much more than Isaiah is saying in Verse 3 of Chapter 63.
Please note that the Lord has promised to pour out of His spirit upon all flesh twice. The Lord has not repeated Himself because He likes to repeat Himself. He said, I shall pour out of My spirit twice. He's going to do it twice. And I suggest to you that this means once before the manifestation of the sons of God and again after the manifestation of the sons of God. The first outpouring came out from the realm of the spirit and fell upon the apostles. Peter said, in Acts 2:16, "But this is that which was spoken of by the prophet Joel." But I'm going to suggest to you that the anointing, which was upon the apostles in that day, is not the same anointing which is upon the church today. We go into this subject in more detail on Message 113, "The Truth About Baptism."
I don't think many believers would dispute that the anointing which is upon the church today is not the same anointing which was upon the apostles. But because they don't understand it, they either explain it out of their carnal minds or ignore the truth. It's also pretty obvious that the first outpouring is not abiding upon all flesh today. So they will tell you -- the preachers of the temporary fivefold ministry will tell you it was poured out upon all flesh, but men with wicked hearts have not received God's offer, and God is therefore going to burn them in Hell forever, eternal torment. That is their explanation as to why this outpouring has not cleaved unto or stuck on or stayed with every human being on the face of the Earth. That's their answer to it. This is God's answer to it.
Glory to God. This situation exists where we see many people, they just seem to be unable to respond to Christ. And if they are unwilling to respond to Christ, we do not see the Lord doing anything to influence them. So the carnal minds of men, again, will tell you that Jesus Christ is a gentleman, that He will not take you whether you chose or refuse, that He would rather let you burn in Hell forever than take you by your hand and whack your behind and bring you into glory. And my Bible says, if you don't chasten your child, you hate him. And I declare to you that my God has never hated His own flesh. He's the one that told us no man could ever hate his own flesh, that we are so close to Him that we are indeed His flesh, and He shall restore us back to the spiritual realm of God so that we can abide with Him forever.
So this first outpouring that came out of the realm of the spirit, which is in fact and was in fact and is in fact the very glorified spirit of the Lord Jesus Christ, pouring out of the realm of the heavenlies upon the apostles. This was the fulfillment of Scripture in Joel which said, "I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation. And spiritual men as well as spiritual women shall prophesy. The temporary fivefold ministry which is to re- -- be replaced by the sons of God shall dream dreams which are generated by a criminal spirit." That's it. The anointing that poured out on the day of Pentecost, that's it.
Now, you can't tell me that that anointing has caused spiritual virgins to see visions from God and predict future events and faithfully, without error, repeat the word of God. Can you tell me that that anointing that was poured out at the day of Pentecost has already poured [?in out?] -- has already poured out on the servants and the handmaidens which are minister- -- or sitting under the ministry of the sons of God? How could that have happened? The sons of God haven't manifested yet. The Lord said He's going to pour out of His sprit twice. He said He's going to do it twice.
Have you heard of the Latter Rain and the Former Rain? I have heard it preached that the Former Rain was that which was poured upon Israel. And the Latter Rain is that which is poured upon the church. But I declare to you, the Former Rain is that which came on the day of Pentecost and that the Latter Rain, the heavy rain, the overwhelming rain, is that which is about to pour out of the fully manifested sons of God. Glory to God.
The outpouring on the day of Pentecost, it was poured out upon the whole creation, but it wasn't intended to bring salvation to the entire creation. Its purpose was to raise up those who were to prophesy and to also raise up the temporary fivefold ministry. "And I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation, and spiritual men as well as spiritual women shall prophesy. The temporary fivefold ministry, which is to be replaced by the sons of God, shall dream dreams which are generated by a criminal spirit." That's all that's happened so far.
And I want to tell you something else. The human mind, which is -- the church world is filled with the carnal mind of the natural man. It's continuously drawing conclusions. Read what this says. "And I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation." Where does it say the whole creation shall receive salvation? Where does it say some of the creation shall receive salvation? Where does it say salvation? It says, "I shall pour out of My spirit upon all flesh, and spiritual men and women shall prophesy, and a temporary fivefold ministry shall be raised up." Where does it say, if you don't receive an experience with Christ, you are burning in Hell forever? Where does it say it? It is the mind of man that has read into the Scripture that has drawn inferences, that has supposed, that has imagined in the darkness of his mind and brought forth the doctrines of men, from the pit of Hell, which is in fact the mind of Adam, which is ruled by Satan.
The second outpouring shall pour out of the sons of God after they stand up in full stature. In Acts 2, Peter quoted the verses we've just studied, plus a few more. And I'm suggesting to you that those verses only began to come to pass at the time that Peter quoted them. They began to come to pass 2,000 years ago. So I've already pretty much done this, but I'm going to follow along my notes. So if I'm repeating myself, forgive me.
Let's look at our Alternate Translation of Joel 2:28-29 again. And we'll see that the -- that only about half of it has come out pass in this hour. "And I shall pour out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the whole creation, and spiritual men as well as spiritual women shall prophesy." Nothing about anyone getting saved, and of course nobody's saved yet except the Lord Jesus Christ. We are in the process of being saved. We are in the process of being resurrected from the dead. We are in the process of being raised out of this realm of death. We are in the process of breaking out of Hell. We are in the process of. We're not out yet. And the mind of man has fantasized. He has imagined. He has thought his own thoughts, and he has preached millions, to millions of people, that we are already out. And of course everybody knows we're not out, so he makes up the story that when your body dies, you shall enter into glory. He imagined the answer to his question because God didn't answer him right away, so he imagined his own answer.
The doctrines of men shall surely kill you. Reject them, for the light has risen in you. Turn to your God, and turn away from the darkness of this world system, saith the Lord.
Now, the next phrase about spiritual virgins is manifesting in part in this hour. What phrase is that? "Spiritual virgins shall see visions from God and predict future events, and they shall faithfully repeat and explain God's message to men." It's manifesting in part. It's manifesting here in part, but it's not perfect. How do I know it's not perfect? Frequently, I come in and tell you I had to make a change from the last message, but we're getting more truth here than any place I know of. It's manifesting in part. It's manifesting, but not in total perfection, but it's manifesting.
Glory to God. Spiritual virgins -- I'm sorry. Now, as I've told you many times, you can't be a little bit pregnant. Spiritual virgins can fulfill the Scripture -- they can fulfill it only when they are in full stature. They cannot be perfection without full stature. Either you're in full stature or you're not in full stature, and if you're not in full stature, which I'm not, there's going to be imperfection.
And the next phrase certainly can't come to pass until God establishes His government in the Earth. "And I shall also" -- second outpouring. "And I shall also pour out of My hidden parts -- out of the hidden parts of My spirit upon the carnal and spiritual human beings who recognize and submit to the government I shall establish in the Earth." There are going to be people who recognize the sons of God, and there will be reprobate people who will not respond even to the sons of God. And I declare to you, they will live out their lives, and they will pass out in the draft as a menstruous egg.
Hallelujah. And what is a menstruous egg? A human being that has not been fertilized. You have not served your purpose. You have not brought forth the Christ. There is no more use for you. Without your life, there's no eternal torment forever without your life, and your human spirit goes back to the Father, and that is the end of this personality in this world system. The human spirit shall live again as a part of the Lord Jesus Christ in maturity. Hallelujah.
OK, we're still trying to get through the phrase of Isaiah 63:3. "And their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments," the Lord Jesus Christ speaking. Remember, please, that we translated the word their as My and the word blood as Christ and the word sprinkled as scatter, to describe the scattering of the wine or the liquor that is expelled from the grape when the skins are crushed. It's referring to the outpouring of Christ as our human personality and soul is destroyed. And that outpouring of Christ, also known as the Shekinah Glory, shall cover over the entire Earth and everything in it. This is the second outpouring spoken about in Joel 2:29 that is going to cover the whole Earth and shall touch the servants and the handmaidens of God.
Hallelujah. Glory to God. I've suggested to you, then, that the phrase is Isaiah 63:3, "And their blood shall be sprinkled upon," should be translated, "And my Christ shall sprinkle Himself because of," "And my Christ shall sprinkle Himself upon humanity because of."
Well, let's find out because of what. Glory to God. This word upon -- let's talk about this word upon. "And their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments." This Hebrew word translated upon is Strong's 5921. Gesenius says that it means upon or when anything is put on the upper part of another so as to stand or lie upon it or have it for its substratum. What is a substratum? It's a foundation. Glory to God. It's also used to describe a state of rest.
Now, for those of you that are saying, well, Jesus Christ is my foundation. How can you say Jesus Christ is lying upon a foundation? I want to remind you of the Scriptures about using the expression pillars. A pillar is a human being upon which or in which the Spirit of God rests. There's Jesus Christ as our foundation, and there's no other foundation laid. But He's also coming in another form, to rest upon the foundation that He has woven, which is Himself. Hallelujah. He is the foundation, and He's the cover. He is the Father, and He is the Son. He is the Spirit, and He's the soul. He's the alpha; He's the omega. He's everything. And without Him was nothing made, and He didn't make it with His hands. He made it out of His very own spiritual substance. He's everything. Glory to God.
So we're saying that the Hebrew word translated upon means that which lies on top. And the Hebrew word translated garments is Strong's 899. We've had that in verses 1 and 2 of Isaiah 63, and it means covering or clothing, treacherous or pillage. And it's referring to the treacherous cover or the treacherous flesh or the treacherous, rebellious, wicked wife of the Lord Jesus Christ. And I'm suggesting to you that the Alternate Translation of this phrase in Isaiah, Chapter 63, Verse 3, which reads, "And their blood shall be sprinkled upon My garments," that the Alternate Translation and that, in fact, the true translation, with the meaning of God, is, "And my Christ shall scatter Himself because of My treacherous wife."
The Spirit of God is divorced from the living soul, and what He's going to do to get her back is He's going to give His Christ a ransom to the living soul. She's wicked. She's adulterous. She's rebellious. She's evil. He's not going to burn her in Hell forever. He's going to give her Christ, and after He gives her Christ, He shall sprinkle Himself. He shall permit Himself to be crucified. He shall permit Himself to be cut into millions of pieces, a drop of Him in each of us. He shall permit Himself to be the ransom which will be joined to us, to each and every surviving member of the living soul, to each and every human being alive at the time on that last day that He's doing this. He has agreed to be joined to us, the wicked living soul, for the life of the ages, because without Him paying that price, we would be in eternal torment. We found out in a recent message this world is not self-destructing. This is eternal torment right here.
And if you're thinking in your mind, well, how could it be eternal torment, because people die eventually? I will answer your question. It is eternal torment for the soul man, Adam. It is eternal torment for Adam who is killing all of the bodies that he's living in. And when he kills your body, he'll continue to live in your daughter's body, and when he kills her body, he'll continue to live in her son's body. It is eternal torment for the spiritual man that dwells on the soul realm. His name is Adam, and his God is Satan. Hallelujah. Glory to God. And he comes out of the water, and he's all covered with scales, and he looks like a crocodile, just like in your dream. Hallelujah.
And my Christ shall scatter Himself. Why? Because of my treacherous wife, not to burneth ever but to save her life.
Continuing with the last phrase of Verse 3 of Isaiah 63. "And I will stain all My raiment." The Hebrew word translated raiment is Strong's 4403, and it's -- that's pretty accurate. It's translated raiment several times, but Gesenius says this word -- and in case you don't know it, raiment is clothing. It's another word. We've had the word clothing. We've had the word apparel. We've had the word garments. Now we have the word raiment. And I declare to you, when the Lord uses four different words to describe clothing, He is saying -- with each word, He is saying something different about the clothing. And the clothing of the Lord Jesus Christ is the living soul. It's the same principle as the wine press as opposed to the lake of fire. They're both the judgment of God. The wine press referring to the separation of Christ from Adam and the lake of fire referring to the preservation of the Christ that is imparted after the separation.
Four words meaning clothing, describing four different aspects of the clothing of God, OK. Apparel referring to the act of sexual intercourse. Garments referring to the treacherous nature of the woman. Were there three or were there four words? Maybe there were only three.
And now this word raiment, let's find out what it means. Gesenius says it can also be translated clothing or a garment. Well, we had that before. But the number 4403 does not appear in Strong's for either word. If you look up Strong -- in Strong's, the word garment or the word clothing, there is not one entry under the number 4403 which is translated raiment here. This number is translated vestments, however, in Kings -- in II Kings 10:22, where the word is associated with worship. This word is also translated apparel in I Kings 10:5 and twice in II Chronicles 9:4. It appears twice in that same verse, each time referring to royal garb. Now, we know that the clothing is treacherous and wicked. We know that it's committed adultery, from the prior verses. And now we're seeing a reference to God's garment as being royalty.
And last but not least, this word, Strong's 4403, translated raiment, appears -- well, it is translated raiment in Ezekiel 16:13, where it descries Israel's glory when she was married to the Lord. And it also appears in Job 27:16 where we're told that the hypocrite -- we're talking about Satan -- talking about Adam, who is ruled by Satan, has generated clay souls and bodies but that the just, meaning Christ, shall wear them. Do you hear this? Job 27:16 says the hypocrite, referring to Adam ruled by Satan, has generated the human souls and bodies across the face of the Earth, but the just shall put them on.
This is what I've been teaching you for months when I say to you, Jesus Christ has not generated your body or your soul. Satan has generated all of our bodies and our souls, and Jesus Christ is apprehending us as a spoil of war. But until He -- until the Lord Jesus Christ is mature enough in us to sustain the life of our soul and our body, if He kills Satan, if He destroys the Adamic soul, this body will die. So we must abide in the tribulation until Christ is strong enough to sustain our life.
And here's another witness to it. I feel to read it one more time. Job 27:16, where we're told that the hypocrite, meaning Adam ruled by Satan, has generated clay souls and bodies, but that the just, meaning Christ, shall put them on.
I want to give you the exact word in the King James. Job 27:16, let me get that Scripture for you. Thank you, Jesus. The exact verse in Strong's reads, "Though he heap up silver as the dust," silver referring to the soul, "and prepare raiment as the clay," the raiment, the garment, the royal clothing, the clothing. It's being prepared as clay. Verse 17, "He," who? The hypocrite, "may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent," he who's without sin, "shall divide the silver."
And if you want to know where I got the word hypocrite, it's in Verse 8 of Chapter 27, where the so- -- where the Holy Spirit starts to address this subject. For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he heap up silver as the dust. He forms the souls, and prepare raiment. That's the body. That's the clay. He may prepare it, but the just shall put it on, and the innocent shall divide the silver. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
So I'm suggesting to you that the Hebrew word translated raiment in Isaiah 63:3 means more than clothing, and in fact, it speaks of both royal and priestly coverings. As further proof that this Hebrew word speaks of royal and/or priestly clothing, it is derived from the root, Strong's #3847. Gesenius says this word is used to describe the Spirit of God being put on anyone or filling someone. It's a root that means to cover over or fill someone. Judges 6:34 says, "But the Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon, and he blew a trumpet." This is the same Hebrew word translated 3847, which is the root of the word raiment.
I Chronicles 12:18 says, "Then the spirit came upon Amasai," and in Luke 24:49, we find the Greek equivalent of this Hebrew word used, "And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you," to send upon, to cover over. And we know that when a spirit covers us over, it also fills us. The Spirit of God shall be a fire within us and a wall of fire with -- around us. And the darkness was over the people, and the gross darkness was within them. Spirit is within us and without us. Hallelujah. Glory to God.
The Hebrew word translated stain is Strong's 1351, and it means polluted, impure or defiled. So we're dealing with the phrase -- and I can hear the little voices screaming out there, well, what are you going to do with this one, Jesus Christ is going to pollute His garment? The word stain means to pollute. Well, what have you got to say about that? This is what I've got to say about it. Have you heard of the death of death? Have you heard of death being killed and life arising out of it? Have you heard of that which has already been polluted being polluted and cleansing coming out of it? How can you pollute what is already polluted? The carnal mind of man sees God's judgment. He sees God's spirit has pollution, and indeed it is polluting the pollution that already exists, and it shall result in righteousness.
When God pollutes, it brings forth life. When God kills, it brings forth life. When God torments, it brings forth peace. There is nothing that He does that does not have a good end, and He does not do eternal torment. That is the expression of the Adamic man. Everything he does is wicked. Everything he does results in destruction. Everything he does results in torment. Everything he does results ultimately in hatred and corruption. How can a God who brings forth life and righteousness from everything He does burn you in Hell forever as the carnal mind understands it? Impossible, I say, impossible. Glory to God.
I also want to show you something very interesting about this word stain. Do you remember our teachings on the fact that our human spirit is stained with sin, just very recently on this very series? The Lord has show us that the reason so many believers have a problem that this personality is not resurrected is that our true reality, which is our human spirit, is diluted in the spiritual water known as Satan, and we have totally lost our identity. And one of the ways the Lord expresses this is we are stained with him. When you take a piece of fabric -- and we are the fabric or the garment of God, and when you take a piece of fabric and you die it, you try to change its color. It penetrates every fiber of the garment. We have been penetrated in every fiber of our being by the overwhelming, domineering, mind controlling, witchcraft spirit known as Satan. And we are so overtaken that when we look in the mirror, we see him, and we think that we are him. But we are not him. We are Christ. And the Lord Jesus Christ shall boil him as a sin offering, and we shall be separated from him, and we shall go into solution with Christ. And then we shall see ourselves as we are.
When we see Him, we shall be like Him. And when He appears, we're going to appear with Him. What does that mean? We're going to be dissolved in the water of His soul, and we're going to be so much like Him that we won't even be able to remember -- well, I don't know if that's true. We won't be able to identify with Satan in any way.
We are a garment that has been died, who is about to be separated from the die. In the natural, this is impossible. You die your garment; it's impossible to get that die out. But for the Lord Jesus Christ, for Him, nothing is impossible. Thank you, Lord, for your Son and for your Christ. Glory to God.
Also, we have another interesting point. This word -- this Hebrew word, Strong's 1350, we're dealing with the word stain, the Hebrew word translated stain, Strong's 1351. The number before that, in Strong's, 1350, is spelled exactly and pronounced exactly as Strong's 1351, and we've had this situation many times. And I've explained to you that the variation of meanings of many Hebrew words is so great that they could mean the exact opposite in varying contexts, that the writers of the lexicons frequently give one word two numbers, because they can't cope with the variation of meanings, with the total contradictions of meanings.
So this is one of those cases, and we find that Strong's 1351, as well as Strong's 1350, are spelled exactly the same and pronounced exactly the same way. However, Strong's 1351, we're told, means to pollute, to make impure or to defile, and Strong's 1350 means to redeem, to be the next of kin, to buy back a relatives property, to marry his widow. This is the word used in the Book of Ruth where we hear about Boaz redeeming Ruth. And we all know that this is a type of the redemption of the creation. This is the word that is translated to redeem. So we find, in this instance, that we could fit this word, in this Scripture, either way, to mean to pollute or to mean redeem. They're both appropriate.
Glory to God. So we're dealing with the phrase, "I will stain all my raiment." The word all, again, is Strong's 3605, and it means the whole.
Alternate Translation, the last phrase of Isaiah 63:3. "And I shall penetrate my glorious, priestly wife, and she shall be redeemed." I shall penetrate her. I shall stain her. I shall pollute her. Th- -- I shall penetrate her in every fiber of her being. And the result of it is that she's -- this wicked, treacherous living soul is going to become glorious and priestly. The Lord's going to penetrate her. She's going to become glorious and priestly, and she shall surely be redeemed, in every fiber of her being, in every fiber of the creation.
And you are a fiber, and you are a fiber, and I am a fiber. How do I know that? Because when we -- I know it, because when we first started in this series, we found out that the Lord Jesus Christ called Himself a fiber in the garment of God. And we found out that that -- that by calling Himself that, He identified Himself with the human race. And every fiber of this garment shall be stained with the very life of Christ, and the result of it is that we shall be redeemed. Glory to God.
Alternate Translation, the third third of Isaiah 63:3. "And My Christ shall scatter Himself because of My treacherous wife. And I shall penetrate my glorious priestly wife, and she shall be redeemed."
"My Christ shall scatter Himself," He's going to go through everything that He's going through so that He can be scattered over the whole creation, because God's wife is treacherous. And the Lord shall penetrate her, and she shall become glorious and priestly, and she shall be redeemed.
Or we can say, "And My Christ shall purify my treacherous wife in the lake of fire." What did I just do? I took the phrase, "And My Christ shall scatter Himself." We know what it means, but let's put it in more clear English. "And My Christ shall purify My treacherous wife." What do you mean? "My Christ shall scatter Himself." Well, His scattering of Himself is the formation of the lake of fire. Does anybody not understand that? OK, so I'm changing it. I am amplifying this phrase to make it more understandable. "And My Christ shall, by scattering Himself, purify My treacherous wife in the lake of fire, which is the scattering of His life. And I shall penetrate my glorious, priestly wife, and she shall become glorious and priestly, and she shall be redeemed."
Glory to God. Or we can say, "And My Christ shall purify My treacherous wife in the lake of fire, and she shall become glorious and priestly. And I shall penetrate her, and she shall be redeemed." I just moved the words around a little to make it clearer. "And My Christ shall purify My treacherous wife in the lake of fire, and she shall become glorious and priestly." I expanded it. [UNINTELLIGIBLE] let me go back. I -- originally, I said, "And My Christ shall purify My treacherous wife in the lake of fire, and I shall penetrate My glorious, priestly wife." Well, I've just explained it to you three times. What it means, I'm just changing the words so when someone reads this for the first time, they're going to know what it means. "And My Christ shall purify My treacherous wife in the lake of fire, and she shall become glorious and priestly. And I shall penetrate her. I shall stain her with My righteousness in every fiber of her being, and she shall surely be redeemed."
Now, in case you hadn't noticed, the deeper the revelation, in particular in the Hebrew -- the Hebrew is incredible -- the more frequently we find verses or phrases or words in the reverse order. And I'll put it on the message. What this means is that we find things stated as if they're seen from the realm of the spirit and not from the realm of the soul. And depending on whether or not something is viewed from the realm of the spirit or the realm of the soul determines which thing occurs first. Is Christ going to scatter Himself first, or is the Lord going to penetrate her first? Very frequently, the sequence of events is reversed.
So, what we have here, I'm going to suggest to you, is that the order of the -- the order of progression from this soul realm is this. Before Christ can scatter Himself upon the living soul, He must be formed in her. I hope we all know that here. Well, before Christ is going to be formed in her, she has to be penetrated by the Father. First, you have spiritual intercourse, and then you bring forth the child. So we find it in this Scripture, speaking about Christ scattering Himself, before we read about the Father penetrating her. And that is because this verse was seen -- or these phrases were seen or written -- seen and written with a view from the eye of the spirit. But we're going to rewrite it, OK, translator's license there. I'm not changing any of the words. We're going to put it in the right order, and we're going to say that she was penetrated before she had the baby. Does anybody have a problem with that, that you have to be penetrated before you have the baby, OK? Everybody knows that, I hope.
So let's say it this way. "A-" -- the Father speaking, "And I shall penetrate My treacherous wife and impregnate her with Christ, and He shall purify her in the lake of fire, which is His very own life. And she shall become glorious and priestly, and she shall surely be redeemed." Or we can say, "I shall penetrate my treacherous wife and impregnate her with Christ, and He shall purify her in the lake of fire. And she shall become glorious and priestly, and she shall be redeemed." From what? From spiritual d- -- the spiritual death of this world system, which is Hell.
"And I shall penetrate my treacherous wife and impregnate her with Christ, and He shall purify her in the lake of fire, which is His very own life. And she shall become glorious and priestly, and she shall be redeemed from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell."
I'm going to suggest to you that what we're just -- what we've just discussed, which is the last part of Isaiah 63:3, is the fulfillment of Revelation 20, Verse 14, which reads, "And death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."
"And I shall penetrate my treacherous wife and impregnate her with Christ, and He shall purify her in the lake of fire. And she shall become glorious and priestly, and she shall be redeemed out from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell."
"And death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death," which is the death of death which results in life. Hallelujah.
Alternate Translation, Isaiah 63:3, "Because I'm the only human being which has brought His Adamic soul into submission to the Father, by overcoming her military strength, and each and every one of the people, which are My companions, is nothing in comparison to Me, therefore, because of My passion for My wife, I shall oppress the many members of the living soul and lead them forth. And I shall penetrate my treacherous wife and impregnate her with Christ. And he shall purify her in the lake of fire, and she shall become glorious and priestly. And she shall be redeemed from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell."
Glory to God. I'm not finished with it yet. Once again, we find a reverse order. I'm going to move the phrase, "I shall oppress the many members of the living soul and lead them forth," and I'm going to place it after the phrase, "And impregnate her with Christ." Now, we're just putting things in the order that our carnal mind can understand them logically. Glory to God. You have to be impregnated with Christ before He can lead you forth. Amen.
This is what it sounds like. "Because I'm the only human being which has brought His Adamic soul into submission to the Father by overcoming her military strength, and each and every one of the people, which are my companions, is nothing in comparison to me, therefore, because of my passion for my treacherous wife" -- she's treacherous over here -- "I shall penetrate her and impregnate with -- her with Christ, and He shall" -- and who -- and He who? Christ. "I shall penetrate her and impregnate her with Christ, and He, Christ, shall oppress, after He's born in her -- shall oppress the" -- I'm sorry. He starts that after He's conceived. "And I shall impregnate her with Christ, and once He's conceived, Christ shall oppress the many members of the living soul and lead them forth and purify them in the lake of fire, and they shall become glorious and priestly." They're not going to be treacherous anymore. "And they shall be redeemed from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell."
I'm going to read this one more time. "Because I'm the only human being which has brought His Adamic soul into submission to the Father by overcoming her military strength, and each and every one of the people, which are my companions, is nothing in comparison to me, therefore, because of my passion for my treacherous wife I shall penetrate her and impregnate with. And He shall oppress the many members of the living soul and lead them forth and purify them in the lake of fire, and they shall become glorious and priestly. And they shall be redeemed from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell."
Glory to God. You may have noticed that in the translation we worked up at our last meeting, the Father is the one oppressing the living soul. But in the above translation, it's Christ oppressing the living soul. I -- in case anybody noticed this, I want to tell you that I can legitimately make this change. What am I saying? I'm saying, the way we worked up the translation last week, it was the Father doing the oppressing. Today I'm making it the Christ doing the oppressing. And someone out there is saying, who do you think you are? And I'm telling you, this is the authority under which I do it.
The authority is that no pronoun, whatsoever, appears in the Hebrew. It is not clear in the Hebrew who is doing the oppressing. And as a translator, I can make my choice, and I make my choice based on what the verse -- upon the content of the verse and what the verse is trying to say and in view of the doctrine that the Lord has already brought forth. We know that the one that crushes the grapes is the Lord Jesus Christ. All judgment has been given unto the Son. Glory to God.
Also, please note that it's the Lord Jesus Christ using the pronoun I in the first phrase of our Alternate Translation, but it's the Father saying, "Therefore, because of My passion," the Father's passion, "for My wife, I shall penetrate her and impregnate her with Christ." So what am I saying? I'm saying that this verse shows us that the spirit of Christ and the Father are the one and the same. Glory to God.
Hallelujah. Now, as I told you when I started, this message is a little long. We're already on a second message. I just have a little bit more. You're both -- you all seem like you're doing fine. If you're OK, I'd like to finish it, OK.
And the rest of the message is that I'd like to point out to you that in the verse that we just read, the Lord is revealing to us the seven stages of redemption. There are seven stages of redemption. How do I know that? I just spent an hour and fift- -- an hour and 45 minutes telling you that the living soul's going to be redeemed because the Father's going to penetrate her, and Christ is going to be formed in her, and He's going to judge her sin-filled soul, and He's going to stain her in every fiber of her being. With what? With His righteousness, and that she's going to be redeemed. And in what I just said are revealed seven stages of redemption, that we, each and every one of us, must go through to be redeemed.
So this is what they are. Number one, penetration of Adam, or our Adamic soul, by the Holy Spirit. And I take that from the phrase, "I shall penetrate her." The Father says he shall penetrate her. II Corinthians, Chapter 1, Verse 22 says, talking about the Holy Spirit, "Who hath also sealed us and given us the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts." And another witness, if you can receive it -- and what are we talking now? We're talking about penetration. I said, the Father sealed. Well, how do you seal somebody? You penetrate them. What does the sealing mean? Job says we're going to be turned under the seal. The intention of this -- the understanding if this expression is that we are soft clay and that a hard, metal object, a die they call it -- isn't that what they call it? They -- is being forced into the clay and cutting the clay so that we're formed in a particular way. That's penetration. Is it not? It's a form of penetration. I'm giving you witnesses to the fact that penetration is the first stage of redemption. You must be penetrated by the spirit of the Father.
And the second witness, if you can receive, is the scorpions of Revelation 9:5. "And to them it was given, that they should not kill them." Who? The Adamic men in whom they are being formed. "But that they should be tormented five months." But who? The Adamic men in whom the sons of God, also known as the scorpions, are being formed. They should be tormented five months. And we have messages on this if you want to get this in detail. To be honest with you, I don't remember, at -- off the top of my head what the term, five months, means. "And their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man."
And when you study those messages in the Revelation series of Revelation 9, about the scorpions, you will hear the descriptions that the Lord gave us of how the sons of God will function as a scorpion and that the scorpion, in particular the sting of the scorpion, is referring to the mind of Christ in the son of God. That mind will penetrate the Adamic mind and will bring it into submission. As a scorpion stings a natural man, the mind of Christ in a son is going to penetrate believers in whom Christ is not being formed. And they will have a travail or a tribulation that the Scripture likens to being stung by a scorpion in your body. It is painful. I'm not trying to scare you, but I will not lie to you.
But I declare to you it is a very rare woman that would refuse to go through the pains of childbirth, if it meant never having a child. And no matter how -- I've heard women moan and groan and complain. I've heard all kinds of stories, and 2 years later, they're back in the labor room having another one. You don't stop having your kids because it's painful. And you certainly don't refuse to bring forth the child that's going to save you in childbearing because it's painful. You're going to go through. And the Lord Jesus Christ is going to get you through. Hallelujah. And you shall surely be redeemed. Glory to God. I feel wonderful tonight. This was one good message. Thank you, Lord.
The second stage of redemption, conception of Christ. Christ must be conceived in you, and we find this in the phrase -- and of course this is all Isaiah 63, the first three verses. "I shall impregnate her with Christ." We hear the Father, in Isaiah 63 saying, "I shall impregnate her with Christ." Galatians 4:19 says, "My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you." Well, if Christ is not formed in you yet, if it's until He be formed in you, being formed in you is a process, and there has to be a start and a finish. We know that the finish is what? That He's formed in you. So what is the start? That He's conceived in you. [UNINTELLIGIBLE]
Philippians 2:6, "Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God." "Who, being in the form of God," speaking of Christ, speaking of the man, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the soul of Christ was fully formed in Him. It came to full term. The baby came to full term in the man, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and when He was crucified, the Father raised Him from the dead. Oh, boy. Are you OK?
I feel the Lord really wants me to put this on this message. There is a difference between the spirit of Christ and the Holy Spirit. They are both the Father in a different form. The spirit of the -- of Christ is the Father that dwells with His Christ, because we know that where the Christ is, the Father is, because the two are one, right? Well, when you're looking at Christ, who was a soul, the Father, the spirit that's with Him, the spirit that rules Him, is called the spirit of Christ. When you see the Father without His Christ, He calls Himself the Holy Spirit. And the spirit of Christ does things that the Holy Spirit doesn't do. Same spirit, different function. Same spirit, different administrations. Glory to God. The Holy Spirit impregnates. The spirit of Christ raises you from the dead. The Holy Spirit does not raise you from the dead. The Holy Spirit heals. The Holy Spirit delivers. The Holy Spirit sings. The Holy Spirit dances. The Holy Spirit doesn't raise you from the dead, man.
Did you ever ask yourself why, if you believe that in the condition that you're in now, that the spirit that raised Christ from the dead, if He dwells in you -- did you ever ask yourself why you're not raised from the dead? I asked. I asked why no- -- I didn't even ask why I'm not raised from the dead. I asked why I'm not healed. Forget about being raised from the dead. I'll take a little bit of health here and there. Because the spirit that raised Christ from the dead isn't in you. He's in the Christ that's in full stature. Hear it, man. It's the truth. No lie ever raised you from the dead. Glory to God.
Just hold on for a minute. I think maybe there's something else about that the Lord wants me to say. Thank you, Jesus. [SPEAKING IN TONGUES]
I'll say it again. Same spirit, different administration. The Holy Spirit, the Father, the Holy Spirit, the Father, the spirit of Christ. The spirit of Christ was upon Israel. It was not the Holy Spirit upon Israel. There is a Scripture that says that. I can't quote it to you right now. It was the spirit of Christ that was on Israel. Christ was formed in Israel. It wasn't just the Holy Spirit. It was not the anointing that the church has now in Israel. They had Christ. Well, what happened to them? It was an imputed Christ. They had Christ but not in a form that was going to permanently raise them from the dead, but it served the purpose that God assigned to it in that day. The Father that was with Israel was the spirit of Christ. He split the Red Sea. He fed them manna in the desert. He brought water out of the rock. Where do you see the Holy Spirit doing that?
You know, there's got to be some answer to these questions, why isn't it happening today? It's not the same administration of the spirit. Stop making excuses out of your own imagination. There's got to be an answer. You're dealing with the creator of the universe. Don't drag Him down to where you are and where I am. We have pea brains next to Him. Don't drag Him down to where you are. You do hurt to yourself. [SPEAKING IN TONGUES]
They went into battle. Not only was no one killed, no one was wounded. No loss was suffered whatsoever. It wasn't the same spirit that's on the church today. They were never sick, never wore their shoes out. Same spirit -- sorry, I said it wrong, different administration, different manifestation of the spirit. You have to know this, because people are going to want to know why, people that you're witnessing to. They're going to want to know the answers to these questions.
I want to tell you, there's a group of people in the church today that the Lord has revealed Himself to, that He has apprehended, because our lives have been so terrible that we know that He saved our life. Even those of us that are walking in all of the error of the rapture and things that are so basic to us, they know their God because they have had a spiritual experience with Him that have saved them out of some terrible destruction. So they know their God, but they're not doing exploits, and they're not being made white. Glory to God. Hallelujah.
My Bible says, they shall knew their God, and they shall do exploits, and they shall be made white. [?Aren't?] the whole world full of people out there that aren't desperate enough to recognize Christ, and they're not going to receive this thing because an emotional need is met. They're not as needy as the people that have received Christ with false doctrine. Any intelligent person knows a lot of what's preached doesn't make any sense. They don't believe it. They know it doesn't make any sense.
So there's a group of people that received the false doctrine because the spirit was revealed to them, and their life was saved or they were saved out of destruction. But the rest of the world is out there, and their life isn't all that bad, and they're not going to receive this thing without the truth. They're not fools. They're not going to receive this thing without the truth, and we have to know the answer, we that are called to know the answers. We can't be forcing deep doctrine on people that aren't ready for this. We can't be forcing deep doctrine on the people who know their God because He's saving their life without deep doctrine, because they're so desperate that He's saving their life.
You've got to know who you're talking to, in the church and out of the church. As the Lord who you're talking to, and minister to them on their level. Ask the Lord what they need to hear. Say, Lord, I'm in this conversation with this person. Pray silently. I know I'm not here by accident. What do you want to say to them? Please, speak it out of my mouth, because words that I speak that aren't from Your spirit are vanity, and I'm wasting my time and his time and Your time. What am I doing here? What do You want to say to this person? And of course He doesn't tell you, don't say it. Say it. Glory to God.
I'm going to try and finish this thing up. So the second stage or redemption is the conception of Christ. The third stage of redemption is the tribulation of the Adamic soul. Christ is not in tribulation, brethren. Adam is in tribulation. Christ is the one that is causing him to be in tribulation. Adam is the clay, and Christ is the hard metal tool that is forcing His image upon the clay. And we see this stage of redemption, tribulation, expressed in the phrase of Isaiah 63:3, "He shall oppress the many members of the living soul."
Acts 14:22, "Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God." I think that's pretty clear. So when you hear somebody preaching that you're going to fly away one night and wake up in a mansion on streets of gold, I ask you to recall this Scripture and to understand that you've got a contradiction here.
Matthew 24:21, "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be." And we talked about that at the beginning of the meeting. I don't -- at this point, I don't know whether I'll have it on the message or not, so I will repeat it. The tribulation that Jesus spoke about, that the world has never seen and will never see again, is not referring to the severity of our carnal understanding of tribulation. He's saying, I suggest to you, that it's a different kind of tribulation.
To the carnal mind of man, tribulation is war, sickness, death, disease, financial disaster. Usually they think of soldiers and warfare and anti-Christ standing up in the Middle East. That's what the carnal mind of man thinks of. Jesus was not talking about this. He says there's a new kind of tribulation. No one's ever experienced it before. It's the tribulation that comes upon the Adamic man when Christ brings him into the image of righteousness. It's never happened before, and it shall never happen again. And I heard somebody say once, well, how do you know that when Christ does -- finishes this whole creation that He won't go and do it again? My Bible says it will never happen again.
The fourth stage of redemption is sanctification, also known as separation. The mind of Christ is being separated from the carnal mind. The carnal mind typified by the grape skins and the mind of Christ typified by the fruit. And the fruit, which is the soft and more vulnerable part of the fruit in the natural, is crushing the grape skin and casting the whole vine into the lake of fire. Glory to God. Where He shall preserve it for the life of the ages.
I Peter 3:15, "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of this hope that is in you with meekness and fear." Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, separate your thoughts. Separate Christ from Adam in your mind. And what does this mean? If you don't have an answer to every man that asketh you why you're so hopeful if you're not hopeful, what does it mean? It means you have not sanctified your mind or your mind is not sanctified. If you are not hopeful, it means that you have not separated from you Adamic mind.
How do I know that? Because Jesus Christ is hopeful. So if you are not hopeful, you are thinking with your Adamic mind, and you are not separated from him. You are Christ. If Christ is separated from you Adamic mind, every thought that you think will be the thought of Christ, because you are Christ. But something's wrong. You have been stained with sin, and His mind is still thinking through you. You have not been separated. You have not come out of solution. You are still dissolved in the water of Adam's soul, which is ruled by Satan. And the Lord says, well, we'll bring a few more trials and tribulations along. We're going to boil that water of your Adamic soul until Satan evaporates and you are released. Hallelujah. Thank God for trials and tribulations. The result of it is that we shall separate from our Adamic soul.
Hebrews 10, verses 9 through 10, "He taketh away the first, that He may establish the second. By which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all." Ha taketh away that which we were given first, the Adamic soul, our Adamic ways, our Adamic thinking, that He may establish the second, the Christ soul, the Christ ways of thinking, by which will we are sanctified. By which? By the second. We're sanctified by the second, Christ, through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all.
And I declare to you -- I really can't -- I really don't feel to get into this in any depth, but I'm going to put it on the message. That expression the body of Christ, it's not referring to His physical body, people. It's not referring to His physical body. That word body means container. Our physical body is the container or the bottle which holds our soul. Our soul is the container or the bottle which holds our spirit. The offering of the body of Christ is the offering of the soul of Christ, not His body. His body is dead. It has been dissolved, and His soul, His glorified soul, is being sprinkled upon all of humanity. Glory to God. Hallelujah.
Now, for all you religious people out there who are getting nervous because I just said that His body is dead, I remind you that we're saved by His life, that glorified life which was revealed on the Mount of Transfiguration. We're not saved by His resurrected human body, which He inherited from the seed of David, which is in the image of Satan. Jesus Christ of Nazareth was an Adamic man. He had a human body. He was different from the rest of creation in that, in addition to His Adamic soul life, He was also born with the life of the Father. And He brought His Adamic soul into submission to that sinless life which was also within Him. There is a place in the glorified creation for the human body, and that is for it to be the spiritual skeleton of the spiritual man.
The human body shall be forced inward and be the visible form of the spiritual man. The glorified soul life, which was within the man Jesus Christ, could have internalized His human body and lived for the life of the ages as an individual spiritual man. But He chose instead to give that individual soul life up so that He could be the corn of wheat which would fall into the ground and bring forth a great harvest. The man Jesus Christ gave up the soul or personality known as the man Jesus and the human body which came with it for this reason, so that He could return to the Father, become one with Him again in pure spirit form and then pour out of His spirit upon all flesh. In this hour, the glorified spirit of Jesus Christ is sprinkling Himself upon the children the Father has given Him, the 42nd generation or the second generation of Christ, if you will, and He has become their new mind.
The Adamic personality and human body of the man known as Jesus Christ of Nazareth has been dissolved, but the glorified spiritual life that was within Him, which the Father raised from the dead, the Christ or the spirit of Christ, lives on in a new form. He is now the glorified mind of the many membered second generation of Christ. His glorified soul life is the bread which was broken so that He could become the new mind of the sons of God.
And because He chose to give up the glorified personality of the man Jesus Christ, there is no longer any need for the human body, which was to be the spiritual skeleton of that individual glorified man. In this hour, the Lord Jesus Christ has become a many membered man, who is living in the next generation, the second generation of Christ. He now has many new souls and many new bodies, your soul and body and my soul and body. And the many crowns that He's wearing in Revelation 19:12 are on the many heads of His many membered body, you and me. The offering of the body of Jesus Christ is the offering of the soul of Christ, the offering meaning the being broken into so many pieces that a drop of Him can be in every human being alive. It's His soul. It's not His physical body.
The fifth stage of redemption is the purification of the human spirit, which is Christ in full stature. And the phrase in Isaiah 63:3 or of our Alternate Translation of Isaiah 63:3, which we're relating this to is, "And purify them in the lake of fire. He shall purify them in the lake of fire."
Malachi 3:3, "And He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and He shall purify the son of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness."
Now, the silver, of course, refers to the soul, and purified silver refers to a redeemed soul. If you're unredeemed in your soul, you're reprobate silver, and if you're purified in your soul, you have a redeemed soul. And He shall purify the sons of Levi. Levi refers to the tribe of priests under the Levitical law.
So we are, those of us who are kings and priests through Christ after the Order of Melchizedek, we are the sons of Levi. You have to realize that when this prophecy was brought forth, the prophet did not know anything at all about the priests after the Order of Melchizedek. He knew of the priesthood, and the word came forth as the sons of Levi. But the New Testament application of this is those of us who are the church, who are being raised up to full stature to be kings and priests with Christ after the Order of Melchizedek. And we are -- those who are being purified shall be the sons of Levi or the offspring of Levi. We are the spiritual offspring of Levi, just as Christ is the spiritual offspring of the nation of Israel. We are -- we who are kings and priests in the New Testament are the spiritual descendants of the priestly tribe of Levi. And the way the Scripture expresses it is that we are the sons or the descendants of Levi.
Glory to God. "And He shall sit as the refiner." Jesus Christ is the one that is purifying us, "and purifier of silver." And He shall purify the priesthood and purge them as gold and silver. And I remind you that gold and silver is being purified by being passed through the fire. Wood, typifying humanity or the soul, must be washed, but it is our human spirit that is likened to gold, and the silver that is coming out of Christ, the soul of Christ, that can only abide the fire. Glory to God. Hallelujah.
A soul that is a natural soul -- and what is a natural soul? It is one to which Christ has not been added. The natural soul is likened to wood. And if it's put in the fire, it will be destroyed. So what is this saying? Before we can go unto judgment, Christ must be appearing in our soul. Christ, the precious metal of purified silver, must be joining in some measure with our soul, or the fire, which is the life of the Father which burns up sin, will destroy us. Therefore, the judgment cannot start until we have some preserving measure of Christ in us. Hallelujah.
And He's going to do this -- He's going to purify us, our human spirit, which is gold, and our soul, to which Christ has joined, which is now no longer wood but has become silver, so that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness. And I remind you that the offering is our own soul, which is being boiled as a sin offering, for the specific purpose of evaporating Satan or causing the impurities to -- the spiritual impurities to separate from Eve, which is our human spirit.
I'd just like to speak to you for a minute more about reprobate silver and purified silver. The human soul to which Christ has joined Himself is no longer called wood but is called silver. The Scripture is telling us that there are some men whose souls have been joined to Christ, and are now called silver and no longer called wood, who will not be purified. Even though Christ is joined to them, the judgment will not do the work. And we're told, in another place in the prophets, that the billows are burning, that the fire is hot, but the wicked is not plucked out, and the Lord shall call them reprobate silver.
I'm going to say it again. There are a group of believers out there who even though Christ has begun to be formed in them, because the judgment will not start unless Christ is conceived in you. So even though they have Christ, the judgment will not do its work. The wicked will not be plucked out, and the Lord will reject them, calling them reprobate silver. But those believers who have conceived Christ who are submitting to the judgment, who are working with the Lord, who are confessing their sins and repenting and going forward in Christ, rejecting their Adamic soul, destroying it and having Christ increased in them, that group of believers are called purified silver. Hallelujah. And these believers who are going on with God who have become purified silver, they are making an offering to the Lord in righteousness. They are the ones who have conceived Christ that are destroying their own Adamic soul as a sin offering to the Lord so that Even can be separated, purified, made a virgin again and be joined with Christ. Hallelujah.
James 4:8 says, "Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded." So James is admonishing us to draw close to God, but I remind you, when you draw close to God, to our God which is a consuming fire, that is the going into the fire. Our God is a consuming fire, so when you draw near to Him you're entering into the fire. Who will be able to dwell with the fire and with eternal burnings? We had that on another message in this series, in Isaiah 33. Who shall be able to abide the fire? Who shall be able to draw nigh to God and not be destroyed? He in whom Christ has been conceived and who is offering up their soul as a sin offering to the Lord in righteousness. He is the only one who will be able to do this. And of course, we're told in Isaiah 33 that he is the one who hates sin and loves the righteousness of the Lord.
Glory to God. "Drawn night to God, and He will drawn nigh to you." Cleanse your hands in the purifying fire, ye sinners; and purify your hearts. And I remind you that -- I believe it was on the last message. I explained to you that we either have the heart which is the carnal mind -- the mind and the heart is the same thing, so either you have the carnal mind or you have the mind of Christ. And I'm going to suggest to you that the mind of Christ in you does not need to be cleansed. So when the Scripture says purify your hearts, James is really saying purifying your carnal mind, ye double minded. And you can only be double minded if you have two minds, which would be the mind of Christ and the carnal mind.
So when James admonishes the people to purify their carnal mind, what he is saying is that t- -- it must be dismantled. The carnal mind is purified by dismantling it. I remind you that she is the illegal, bastard offspring of Eve and Satan, and she is female. And she is joined to Satan, her father, and Eve, her mother, and the three are one, and they're appearing as a human per- -- as the human personality of the individual, and she must be dismantled. She must be separated. She must be slain. The -- and she is the enmity in the flesh that must be slain so that Even can be separated from Satan. Why? So that Even can be joined to Christ. Hallelujah.
Glory to God. Titus 2:14, "The great God and our savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." The Lord Jesus Christ our savior and the great God gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity. And I remind you that the Lord Jesus Christ gave Himself twice. He gave His spirit at the foundation of the Earth. He gave up His spiritual life. He became poor so that we could become rich. He gave up His spiritual life so that we could come into existence. And then He gave Himself for us again. He gave His soul life that we spoke about earlier on this message. He gave His glorified soul life by which He could have existed in the soul realm without a human body for the life of the ages, but He gave that up and has permitted Himself to be broken into millions of pieces so that He could be a drop in all of us and do the same work in us that this glorified soul life did in the man, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He's now going to be in many membered man called Christ Jesus. Hallelujah.
"The great God and our savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity," and what is iniquity? Iniquity is the fruit of sin. And I declare to you that sin is Satan, and the fruit or the offspring of sin is the carnal mind. And Jesus -- I'm sorry. Jesus, through Paul, tells us, in the New Testament, that the carnal mind is death. So if Jesus Christ is redeeming us or purchasing us back from iniquity, He is purchasing us back from death.
And I remind you that the Lord Jesus Christ has sold His creation unto sin. He sold us to Satan. And we go into this on the si- -- the first three parts of the number 60 series. He sold us to Satan by joining us to him in chains of darkness, to be reserved unto the judgment which would restore us unto righteousness. The Lord had two choices. He could have whipped us out because of sin, or He could have sold us to Satan, waiting for the manifestation of the glory of Christ to redeem us from all iniquity. Hallelujah.
"That He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." So He purchased us back. To redeem means to purchase. He's purchased us back, and now He's purifying us. He purchased us back with His own blood, and now He's purifying us because that blood is in us, and that blood is that which is purifying us. And when the purification is complete, we will be able to say the prince of this world cometh, but He hath nothing in me. Glory to God. "To purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works." We're going to no longer love evil, but we shall love the good works of the living God.
The sixth stage of redemption -- I will call it redemption. It's redemption within. It's a stage of redemption within the whole experience of redemption. And the phrase that we're referring to in Isaiah 63, or the Alternate Translation of Isaiah 63, is, "They shall be redeemed from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell." Glory to God. And this is in two stages, the redemption of the human spirit through union with Christ and the redemption of the dead Adamic soul through the death of Adam and the resurrection of Christ.
We'll start with the redemption of the human spirit through union with Christ. Now, I remind you that purification of the human spirit qualifies her for union with Christ, which joining is her redemption. When she's joined with Christ, that is the fulfillment of her redemption. And every -- all of the stages that we've gone through up until this point are leading to the human spirit being joined to Christ, which is the end or the outgrowth or the outcome of all the prior steps, which is her redemption. Glory to God. Hallelujah.
And I'm going to suggest to you that redemption is complete when Christ stands up in us in full stature. And then you'll see there's one more step after that, which is the glorification of Christ through circumcisions. Right now we're dealing with the fulfillment of our redemption, the result of all the previous steps, and this redemption is in two phases, the redemption of our spirit and the redemption of our soul. Glory to God.
So as I just said -- let me say it again. The purification of the human spirit, which was the prior step, qualifies her for union with Christ. And when she joins with Christ, she is totally redeemed.
I Corinthians 6:17, "But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit." That's pretty self-explanatory. When she becomes one spirit with Christ, she is Christ. Right now, we are Christ in a fallen, weakened condition. We are Christ, but we are fallen, and the Scripture s- -- likens us to servants. And He says the servant -- I'm sorry. I got that backwards. And when the Lord says that the king, who was a child, is likened unto a servant and is under tutors and governors until he is raised up and taught and trained to be a king. So we are Christ, those of us in whom Christ is being formed, but we are likened to servants, and we are under tutors and governors. And we are under instruction, and the more severe the instruction and restriction and chastisement that you're under, the closer you can recognize you are coming to Christ. The hotter the fire is, the closer you are to Christ. Glory to God.
And when we are -- our human spirit is fully joined to Christ, we shall be fully redeemed, and we shall be in full stature. So I can tell you, quite frankly, that my spirit is not fully joined to Christ. And as you know, we have many people in the church today that preach many of these Scriptures as if we -- as if they are a reality in our life now, and they are not a reality. They are a promise.
When you go to the doctor, ladies, and you find out that you're three months pregnant, you have the promise of a child. You do not have a child, but you have the promise of a child, and all kinds of things can go wrong until that child is brought to full term, and childbirth is a natural example of the experience of the son, in this hour, in whom Christ is being formed. Glory to God.
Isaiah 1:27, "Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness." And I suggest to you that this Scripture is confirming that redemption is brought forth through the judgment which purifies. Redemption is the next step after purification, which purification is a result of judgment. Brethren, there is no other way. And I suggest to you that the second phrase, "and her converts with righteousness," is referring to the ministry of the sons of God. We shall be redeemed with judgment, and when we stand up in full stature, those that come after us will be redeemed with righteousness.
Let me make that more clear for you. Those of us that are being raised up to full stature in this hour, the judgment that the Lord is using, the vehicle through which He is executing judgment against us, is Satan. He is the prince of the power of the air of this -- and he is the God of this world system, and he has authority to execute judgment upon sin. And because we are still fallen, there is sin in our life. The only difference between a man that has no relationship with Christ and the man that has a relationship with Christ or a man in whom Christ is being formed is that when the God of this world executes judgment upon sin in the man that -- in whom Christ is not being formed, it is unto his destruction. But when Satan executes judgment upon sin in the man in whom Christ is being formed, it is used for his good. It is used to destroy the Adamic soul and to build Christ. Glory to God. Don't shut off the message. I'm telling you the truth.
So we are being redeemed with judgment, and our converts with righteousness. What that means is when we stand up in full stature and the sons of God start executing the judgment upon the creation, it will no longer be Satan executing judgment upon the sin, but the righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ through the sons of God. A different order will be bringing forth spiritual maturity in the world than the order which is bringing it forth in the sons of God, a different authority, a different government. The result will be the same, full stature, redemption, a different government bringing it to pass, a different plan, a different set of rules.
And I want to tell you I don't know what the difference is, but I sure would like to know. And as soon as the Lord tells me and as soon as He lets me, I most certainly will pass it on to you.
We're still under the sixth stage of redemption, which is actually redemption itself. And now we're under the s- -- we're up to the second category under that heading, redemption of the dead Adamic soul through the death of Christ and the resurrection. I'm sorry. Oh, I rebuke you. Through the death of Adam and the resurrected of Christ.
And we'll start with the death of Adam. Revelation 20, Verse 14, "And death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." And I really don't think I want to take the time to go into it in much detail, but we have established on messages in this very series that Adam is death. The carnal mind is death. The Adamic soul is death. And, in particular, the personality that is appearing in this world system, which is the carnal mind or the heart of the natural man, that -- around which everything that we are is built. Glory to God.
And Hell is the image of death, which is this world system. And, also, we've gone into that in this series, how now that the carnal mind is ruling in men and reigning in men, the world is the way it is. It is the reflection of the s- -- of the minds that is ruling in this world system. And when the mind of Christ is ruling through the sons of God, it shall be powerful enough or He shall be powerful enough to change the whole world out there. And I remind you that the Scripture says 12 apostles turned the world upside down. This whole world has never been the same since Christ rose from the dead. And I declare to you, when the sons of God stand up in full stature, they will radically change this world. Glory to God. And it is in their reign that we shall see the fulfillment of all the Scriptures that have not yet been fulfilled, such as the lion shall lie down with the Lamb. Hallelujah.
Revelation 2, Verse 23, "And I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works." And this is Jesus speaking .He's going to kill her children with death. Whose children? The children of this age, human beings, men, you and me. We're going to be killed with death. This is the second death, the death of death. If somebody is dead, you cannot kill them, but we will die to what we are, and what we are is death. So what shall we be? We shall be life. By the power and authority and the mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ, every one of us that is a dead spiritual child shall be killed, and then we shall be raised from the dead. Hallelujah.
And the Lord says all the churches will know that the Lord Jesus Christ is the one that searcheth the reins and the hearts. He's the one that tries the motives of your heart. The -- He does -- Christ does not respond to your words. Neither does He respond to your deeds, but He responds to the true motive of your heart, and there is no way to hide when He is shining the light on you.
And we have found out here that there are men and women that spend their whole life doing heroic, notable, good works, and they're doing it to cover over the wickedness that they know is in their heart. And there is no salvation in good heroic works. Salvation is in the life of the Son, and His life must appear in you and swallow up that wickedness, or there is no salvation to you, saith the Lord. Hallelujah.
OK, we're now going on with the second stage of redemption or the second part of the second stage of redemption, which is the resurrected of Christ. When Christ appears in full stature, when He is fully joined to your spirit so that you are one spirit, one of the results of it shall be that He shall preserve your soul. How will He do that? He will bring it into submission to His righteousness, as we read in Romans 1:4, I believe the verse is. When He is in full stature, He will be strong to prevent your Adamic soul from sinning, and He will purify it. And wi- -- through that purification, will impart life to it.
And the phrase in Isaiah 63:3 that indicates preservation is, "He shall purify them." Who? The many members of the living soul, "in the lake of fire," which is His life in full stature. Matthew 9:17, "Neither do we put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved." Brethren, the wine is the spirit that's ruling. The new wine is the spirit of Christ. You can't put the spirit of Christ into the Adamic soul. It will destroy it. The spirit of Christ, which is going to raise you from the dead, must abide or rest in the soul of Christ. Therefore, the Father cannot and is not raising you from the dead until His Christ is formed in you. The Holy Spirit is not raising you from the dead. The spirit of Christ is raising you from the dead, but He dwells in His Christ, and that event shall not happen until Christ is fully formed in you.
Mark 9:49, "For everyone shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt." Preservation, the salt is Christ in you, and that which He is preserving is your soul life. Now, He is not preserving -- if I said this earlier -- I may have said this earlier. I didn't say it right. He is not preserving your Adamic soul. Your Adamic soul shall surely die. It shall surely die. It shall be saved through death. It is desperately wicked and sinful. He is preserving your soul life, and the way He's preserving your soul life is that He's giving you the soul of Christ, which is perfect and therefore does not die. He is preserving your life by killing your Adamic soul. He is purifying it and making it sinless by destroying it and replacing it with His sinless soul life. So it's not your soul, per say, that's being preserved. It is your soul life, your ability to dwell in this soul realm. OK, everybody got that?
Glory to God. The seventh stage of redemption, glorification of Christ through circumcision. And the phrase in Isaiah 63:3 that describes this is, "They shall become glorious and priestly." Glory to God.
Let me say this. Your soul is preserved when Christ stands up in full stature and He's still inside the grape skin. That's preservation. He's still inside the grape skin. He has not circumcised the grape skin or cut His way out or crushed the grape skins yet. That is preservation. Glorification occurs when the Christ, which is in full stature, crushes the grape skins or circumcises the Adamic soul and the carnal mind which is lying on top of Him. When Christ pierces through the carnal mind and crushed it and forces it within and takes up full, dominant rulership, that is glorification. Hallelujah.
Colossians 2:11, "In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ." And again, this word body is not referring to the human body. The body of sins is the Adamic soul. It's the soul which is filled with sin, and it's going to be put off when Christ circumcises it or cuts it or crushes it or kills it and forces it within and becomes the sole ruling law of your life.
Romans 2:29, "But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter." Glory to God. So the circumcision is a spiritual circumcision, and it's a circumcision of the heart. And I would like -- I don't even know if I ever taught you this. I was going to say I'd like to remind you. I don't even know if I ever taught you this. In the Greek, there are two different words, mind and heart. We hear that expression a lot, mind and heart. But in the Hebrew, there's just one word that means mind and heart. It's only one Hebrew word, and it's a Greek teaching that breaks it down into two separate things. And the heart is -- in the natural man, the heart is the carnal mind. And i- -- with regard to the Son, the heart -- with regard to the Father and with regard to the spiritual man, the heart is Christ, and the heart is referring to the mind. The heart of Christ is the mind of Christ, and the mind of Adam is the carnal mind. Glory to God.
So when Romans 2:29 says that the circumcisions is that of the heart, it's clearly saying that it's the carnal mind that's being circumcised, which is another witness to what we've been teaching here. Glory to God. Hallelujah. Thank you, Jesus. And of course it says of the heart, in the spirit, and of course the sharp instrument that's within Christ is the Father. And we found, when we did the Daniel 7 series, that the little horn is the spirit of Christ, is the spirit of the Father in Christ or the spirit of Christ. He is the spiritual authority and the spiritual power. He is greater than the Son. Yet, they are still one. The Father is greater than I, the Lord Jesus Christ said. Yet, nevertheless, they were one.
Hallelujah. The seventh stage of redemption, the resurrection of the dead Adamic soul through death. And the phrase of Isaiah 63:3 that refers to that is, "They" -- who? The members of the living soul, "shall be redeemed from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell."
Revelation 20:14 says, "And death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death." Revelation 2:23 says, "And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works." So the resurrection of the dead Adam- -- is the resurrection of the dead Adamic soul, and that resurrection occurs when it dies. He who seeks to save his life, his soul life, shall lose it, but he who is willing to give it up to Christ shall live in Christ. If you resist Christ, if you resist the crushing of your Adamic soul, you'll lose your life in this -- your soulish life in this hour. But if you're willing to let Christ kill you -- of course, we know that if He's called you, He'll take you whether you choose or you refuse. But that's what Jesus said, if you lose your life, you'll live, because the resurrection of the dead is when Adam dies and Christ -- and you enter into Christ who is in full stature. Glory to God. OK, we're closing out.
I would just like to read to you our Alternate Translation of Isaiah 63:3 before we -- as we close -- as a closing to the message. "Because I'm the only human being which has brought His Adamic soul into submission to the Father, by overcoming her military strength, and each and every one of the people, which are My companions, is nothing in comparison to Me, therefore, because of My passion for My wife, I shall oppress the many members of the living soul and lead them forth and purify them in the lake of fire. And they shall be redeemed from spiritual death and this world system, which is Hell. And they shall be glorious and priestly."
And of course, we've placed the phrase, "And they shall be glorious and priestly," at the end of the verse in accordance with the order of the seven stages of redemption that the Lord has shown us. Any questions tonight? Praise the Lord.
