And, what does the Lord want us to do?

prophecy-bible-end-times

QUESTION:

If Adam and Eve (and therefore all mankind) were removed from the Garden of Eden because they were tricked into following satan’s EVIL WORDS (lies), what do you think God wants us all to do in these “End Times”?

ANSWER:

You’re right!

He wants us to know and follow God’s Holy Words, His Holy Spirit and His Ways.

153 Holy Words
See John 21 – the catch of 153 Great Fish which is symbolic of 153 Holy Words.
Jesus has the Words of Eternal Life (John 6:68)
Who wouldn’t want to know them? 🙂

Examples of His Holy Words:

Field = World
In Matthew 13:38 Jesus tells us that the “field” is the world.
See what’s available to us in Matthew 13:44! (The Treasure of His Holy Words.)

Bread = Instruction
Bread in John 6:22-40 is not just bread for your stomach.
It’s “Manna from Heaven” and is symbolic of instruction from God in Heaven.
Breaking bread enables the Holy Spirit to give us instruction.
It’s a way of communicating to the Lord that you want instruction from Him.
notice-sm
This is what makes these Holy Words so powerful.
They are a Way of Communicating with the Lord.

Fish = His Holy Words
Fish are symbolic of His Holy Words.
He wants us to take a few fish (Holy Words) and feed (teach) His people.

Oil = Knowledge
“Oil” is symbolic of Knowledge. Knowledge of God, His Holy Words, Spirits, etc.
Fill your lamp with oil (knowledge).

The 7 Spirits of the Holy Spirit
See Isaiah 11:2 for the list of His 7 Spirits.

Take the Victory in the Natural by Winning in the Spiritual First

Are you trying to overcome challenges in your life?

Win in the Spiritual first, to take the Victory in the Natural.

David and Goliath

david-goliath

In the classic story of Good vs evil we know as “David and Goliath“, David defeated the enemy (Goliath) in the Spiritual Realm first, by using the Name of the Lord. (The Lord’s Name is the “Word of God” – Revelation 19:13) Then, he defeated Goliath in the natural realm (the world).

Before you go to battle, put on the whole armor of God:

armor-of-god

Ephesians 6:13-18
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

notice
The “Whole Armor of God” includes Spiritual weapons of warfare, not physical.  We take victory in the natural world by  first winning in the Spiritual.

Victory is assured when we Follow these 2 steps:

1) First Defeat the Enemy in the Spiritual Realm
2) Then Victory is Assured in the Natural Realm (the World)

satan is a liar and all he can do is COPY the Lord.

In 1 Samuel 17:4-7 notice that Goliath has armor and weapons that COPY what the Lord has given us as listed in the “Whole Armor of God” verses of Ephesians 6:13-18 (see above).

1 Samuel 17:4-7
4 And a champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, from Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 He had a bronze helmet on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail, and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of bronze. 6 And he had bronze armor on his legs and a bronze javelin between his shoulders. 7 Now the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam, and his iron spearhead weighed six hundred shekels; and a shield-bearer went before him.

Goliath was Missing the Most Important Piece of Armor!

Compared to the “Whole Armor of God” (listed in Ephesians 6:13-18), what was Goliath missing?

The belt of Truth

belt-of-truth

David challenged Goliath in the one area where Goliath was NOT protected: The belt of Truth. (See Samuel 17:45 below) What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17) The belt of Truth is the first item listed because it is by far the most important!

Samuel 17:45
45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

  1. First Defeat the Enemy in the Spiritual Realm
  2. Then Victory is Assured in the Natural Realm (the World)

David defeated the enemy (Goliath) in the Spiritual Realm first, by using the Name of the Lord. Then, he defeated Goliath in the natural realm.

  1. David said to Goliath “I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”
  2. Then David used his sling and Sent that Rock, and God did His part by having it hit Goliath right in the temple which brought the giant down. (In the Bible, the “Rock” is symbolic of the Lord… who IS the Word of God.)

david-goliath2

ACTION STEP:
To win our battles, we need to do the same thing. What happens in the physical realm is a manifestation of the Spiritual Realm. The Lord has given us Spiritual weapons of warfare that give us victory over the Spiritual Realm which will then affect the physical realm (the world).

So, stop focusing on what is happening in the natural realm in our lives and start winning in the Spiritual Realm so that the victory comes into our lives and the world around us. As it says in Zechariah 4:6 , the Battle is won with His Spirit.

Zechariah 4:6

6 So he answered and said to me:

“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:
Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
Says the Lord of hosts.

Let’s get out there and let’s win this battle!

His Word: Oil

Oil is symbolic of Knowledge.

Using Oil is symbolic of our desire to enable the receiving of knowledge from God. Using oil is a way of showing God you desire knowledge from Him. In the Bible there are many different types of oils used such as:

  • olive oil,
  • frankincense oil,
  • and myrrh oil.

Olive Oil

oil-olive
The dipping bread in oil is symbolically saying that we want to receive knowledge from God.

bread-jesus-break

You should also put a little salt on your bread before dipping it in oil because of the instruction given in Leviticus 2:13 (every grain offering to be seasoned with salt). Salt is symbolic of being humble.

Frankincense Oil

oil-frankincense
Frankincense Oil is used for enabling us to build the knowledge of Wisdom – the 2nd Spirit of God – the Spirit of Wisdom. (See the 7 Spirits listed in Isaiah 11:2)

The application of the Frankincense Oil is a communication to the Lord that you desire that your heart know His Words of Wisdom in your heart and that your mind be caused to be able to receive understanding of His Ways. That way the mouth will speak in the Ways of His Holy set apart Words and the hands will be doers of the Ways of His Holy set apart Words. Therefore this is extremely important oil.

Frankincense Oil is so important that the Father sent foreign wise men to Bethlehem to provide this gift for the use of the Lord Jesus. Jesus became the wisest to have ever lived.

Frankincense oil is used by applying it to both temples of your head.

head-temples

Myrrh Oil

oil-myrrh
Myrrh Oil is for enabling us to plant a firm foundation of the fruit of Good Works.  This reveals that they are desiring to walk in the Ways of God to do Good and not evil so that we will complete the Work that God has for us to do.  That is the work of the 3rd Spirit of God – the Spirit of Understanding.  (See the 7 Spirits listed in Isaiah 11:2) This is why the Myrrh Oil is used for anointing our feet that we will be able to walk in the Way that the Lord has made known and that is the Way of the Will of the Father for us.

The “End Times” (Day of the Lord) is Now!

The Day of the Lord (“End Times”) is Here!

QUESTION: What does the Bible and Bible prophecy say are the signs we are in the “End Times”? What does the Lord want us to do?

ANSWER: In the “End Time” (Day of the Lord) we are to be Sanctified by “Truth”.
What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17). This article explains how we are to be set apart by Truth so we can get through the Judgment as the Lord wishes us to do.

day-of-the-lord

Mankind was removed from in the Garden of Eden when Adam and Eve followed satan’s words (lies). Now the Lord is calling us to come back to Following His Holy Words and Ways of Righteousness, Wisdom and Peace. Jesus has the Words of Eternal Life (John 6:68). He wants us to hear His voice.

The Day of the Lord has ALREADY Began:

It was foretold in Zechariah 14:7 that the Day of the Lord would begin with the entrance of Light – and His Words give Light – See Psalm 119:130.  The Day of the Lord began with the opening of His Holy Words that give Light and Understanding so we can increase in Wisdom. We are to bring forth His Kingdom on Earth. See the following verses which explain:

Judgments of the Day of the Lord are rendered
by our hearing, or our rejecting, of God’s Words:

In John 12:48, the Lord testified that all the Judgments of the Day of the Lord are according to the Words of God that He was sent into the world to bear witness of.  It is a requirement of God that we are to choose to be set apart from the world by “Truth” which is His set apart Holy Words. See the following verses which explain:

  • Deuteronomy  18:18-19 (God sent Jesus to earth to bear witness to God’s Words and we are REQUIRED to hear His Words. God made all His Creation with His spoken Word. See Genesis 1);
  • John 18:37; (Jesus testifies to Roman Pontius Pilate that He came to bear witness to Truth. “What is Truth?” His Word is Truth – Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17);
  • John 12:48 (We are Judged by whether or not we hear His Words);
  • John 17:17 (His Word is Truth);
  • John 5:24-25 (He who hears Jesus’ Words and believes in God has everlasting life);
  • Psalm 119:130 (His Words give light) & Hosea 6:5 (Your judgments are like light [His Words give light]);
  • Proverbs 1:20-33 (Don’t miss Proverbs 1:23 which says “Turn at my rebuke; Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.”).

Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of understanding the “symbolism” in His speech and knowing what Words like these mean: Ask, Arrow, Blood, Bow, Bread, City, Cup, Door, Field, Fish, Flesh, Food, Fruit, Gate, Gather, Light, Milk, Meat, Mountain, Oil, Ox, River, Rock, Sabbath, Seed, Sent, Stand, Sword, Table, Truth, Vine, Voice, Walk, Wash, Way, Wine, Word, etc. (These Words are woven throughout the scriptures of the whole Bible. For example: “Ox treading grain” is symbolic of a teacher of His Words. (See Deuteronomy 25:4, 1st Corinthians 9:9-12, 1 Timothy 5:18) His Words “Seal” us, get us through this Time of Judgment (John 5:24), and keep us safe (Revelation 12:17).

The Father Gave Us Specific Requirements
that His elect must accomplish in His Day:

His Word: Bread

bread-from-heaven

Read the “Bread from Heaven” verses in John 6:22-59 and you will see bread is much more than food for your stomach. Bread is symbolic of instruction from God in Heaven.

In John 6:27 Jesus says “Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life” This is because:

He wants us to know His Words so we can follow His voice.

bread-jesus-break

Why did Jesus “Break Bread” with others?

Bread is a simple word, but it’s also very powerful. Breaking bread and eating it releases the Holy Spirit to draw people to seek instruction from God. This is why Jesus broke bread.

When you Gather with your assembly of people, it is a wise idea to break bread before you start studying so the Holy Spirit will guide you while learning the Word of God.

Pray that your flight may not be in winter…

Are YOU ready? Pastors, is your flock ready?
Winter starts on December 21st – less than 3 months away.

winter

Matthew 24:20-22 – Great Tribulation
20 And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

Great Tribulation is coming soon. We are in the time of Judgment… judgment on who’s WORDS we follow. The Words of God or the words (lies) of satan.

We have a choice:

  1. Follow God’s Holy Words and come into His Kingdom and be Sanctified by Truth. If we follow the Lord’s Words and Ways we are following His Righteousness, Wisdom and Peace and He will Bless us and Protect us.
  2. But, if we follow the world’s words and ways (satan’s words, which are all lies!) we will continue down the wide path of destruction filled with evil, lies, sickness, war and death.

Which do you choose?

God sent Jesus to Earth to Bear Witness to His Words:

Deuteronomy 18:18-19
18 I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. 19 And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.

(NOTE: God is speaking to Moses here about the Prophet who is to come speaking God’s Words. This is Jesus. Jesus IS the “Word of God”! Revelation 19:13)

Jesus Testified of the Words to Pontius Pilate:

John 18:37
37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

(NOTE: What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth. (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17)

We are all judged by His Holy Words:

John 12:48
48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him –the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day.

notice
Notice in John 12:44-50 below how the Pharisees did not confess Him as being the Son of God who came with God’s Words like was told to Moses in Deuteronomy 18:18-19. This is the SAME THING that the Shepherds (Pastors) of today are doing!

They do not recognize that in the “Day of the Lord” (also known as the “End Times”) the Lord would open up His Holy Words to us (allow us to know them) and we are REQUIRED to be Sanctified by Truth. What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth. (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17)

John 12:44-50
42 Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

44 Then Jesus cried out and said, “He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. 45 And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. 46 I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness. 47 And if anyone hears My words and does not believe, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him—the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. 49 For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak.”

Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of knowing the meanings of His messages in His Parables, Sayings and Words so we hear, understand and follow His “Voice” and His “Way”. He wants us to know what He means when He speaks His Words like:

  • Blood,
  • Bread,
  • Flesh,
  • Food,
  • Fruit,
  • Gather,
  • Milk,
  • Mountain,
  • Oil,
  • Seed,
  • Stand,
  • Table,
  • Truth,
  • Vine,
  • Voice,
  • Walk,
  • Wash,
  • Way,
  • Wine,
  • etc.

153-fish-blue
In John 21:11 the 153 Great Fish are symbolic if His 153 Holy Words that are woven throughout the scriptures of the Bible and bring forth greater knowledge of Truth.

kingdom-of-heaven-is-at-hand

The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand!

Do you remember WHY Adam and Eve got removed of the Garden of Eden? Because they followed satan’s words (lies). Now the Lord wants you to Come BACK to His Kingdom. His Kingdom is His Words in you. In His Kingdom, He will take all the darkness out of your heart and soul and you will be filled with happiness, love that you have never known and joy that you never even considered you could have! Plus, the Blessing of understanding how to enable all the Good to come forth from calling upon His Words and knowing it will be done (John 15:7).

John 15:7
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
