The Word of God always used a man's name to reveal HIS character, his nature, what he was, and his bloodline. When a man's name changed, he took on a new nature and personality. For example, God changed Jacob's name to Israel. In Genesis 32:27, 28, it says, "[The Man] asked him, What is your name? And [in shock of realization, whispering] he said, Jacob [supplanter, schemer, trickster, swindler]! And He said, Your name shall be called no more Jacob [supplanter], but Israel [contender with God]; for you have contended and have power with God and with men and have prevailed."
God changed Saul's name to Paul in Acts 5:34. When the name Paul was said, the people understood that this was a new man, a new image, a man of God. A change had taken place and a name was given to show the change.
Even as God used a man's name to reveal his character, God discloses the characters of the seven churches through their names. Revelation 1:1, "The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John." So, this is the unveiling of the Resurrection (life out of death), "Jesus." When we were born again, we became part of His Body. It is a progressive work, a revealing, of His Nature within. The principle of resurrection is life out of death. When we are born again into life out of death, the principle of that new nature has to be disclosed and developed within us. We are going to be like Jesus. We are heirs of His Nature, all His attributes. Not until we are born again, can we realize the mixture of life and death in our members (Romans 8:2). THERE IS A WAR GOING ON BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH IN THE MIDST OF EVERY BELIEVER. Just as John saw the seven-fold Holy Spirit nature before the throne, he also saw the seven churches of the earthly mixture that must be overcome and come out of the Resurrection body. So, we identify that nature and character and we look at what is revealed in a name and the authority and dominion that we have received to deal with each of those controlling spirits.
This book is about God's dealing with fear. So often we don't identify our root problem immediately because of the extenuating circumstances that we are involved in.
Gideon had a need. The people were starving and there was no food available for the people to eat, that was the immediate problem, but the underlying root was his fear of Midian. God's mercy in allowing him to work through his problem shows us the kindness of our Heavenly Father.
Gideon's name meant he was a "destroyer, a deliverer." His name represented his character and nature, but he was not walking in its authority. Fear was keeping him bound. It is good to consider here, since we know that man likely does more because of fear then because of love or any other emotion. God had to expose fear and let Gideon walk through each stage of it.
The Strong's Concordance describes two kinds of fear: Prime root: To be apprehensive of evil. To be afraid. To feel anxiety on account of some expected evil. To be timid: wanting courage. Awful; state of being afraid. Terror.
The other kind of fear is described as awe (i.e.) to stand in awe. To revere. This kind of fear demands obedience and discipline on the believers part. When your Godly reverence becomes more precious to you than the power of fear, when you make the decision to serve God first - - then in His mercy you deal with your emotions. Proverbs 15:16 says, "Better is little with fear of the Lord than great treasure and trouble there with." The Hebrew word for fear here is yarah. It means to reverence, to trust. Exodus 14:31 says, "When the people saw the great works of God they trembled and believed."
The other word for fear in Hebrew is pacbad. It means tremble, to be in trepidation. Isaiah 12:2 says, "While fear can make a man tremble, trust in the Lord will save a man from fear." If God inspires terror that will lead one to trust and reverence Him. Then such terror becomes a blessing.
Disobedience had caused Israel's problem.
Obedience set them free.
I pray this message will be a tool to each reader in identifying and dealing with our emotions.
The generation of Jesus Christ, the Last Adam, is coming forth in this last day. Changes are taking place as this "just man", the container of the Holy Spirit, is maturing and walking in his inheritance. None can stop God's plan of the ages. Time is running out for the natural realm and a supernatural day is fast set to dawn. It is time for the sons of God to be birthed from the womb of the morning and to be seen in this earth, (Ps. 110:3). Glory to God, we are a people God has chosen to fill with His Glory. NOW is the day of salvation! Surely creation is standing on tiptoe waiting to see the manifestation of the sons of God. (Rom. 8:19-22 Amp.) None will be able to stand before them. All enemies will tremble and be defeated as this dust man, putting on immortality, takes his authority in the Name of Jesus Christ.
The purpose of this writing is to reveal, teach, and bless all. Our generation has seen great and mighty things take place. Knowledge has increased more than in any generation before us. The capability of the natural mind has greatly expanded, but it can never surpass the Wisdom of our God or His plan for the ages. He is revealing mysteries and secrets never before understood in His Mighty Word.
We have a rendezvous in Arm'-a-ged'don, on the plain of Jezreel. Arma means: A "Hill", Megiddo means: "A crowed place", and Jezreel is: "The Seed of God." The battle zone is being revealed between the forces of good and evil. The battle is set in array and the mind of man is the prize. Rendezvous means: "A scheduled meeting place." IT WILL HAPPEN! What is seen in the natural has to first be seen by the Spirit. There is a spiritual battle in the midst of man. There is much mixture in the Seed of God. . . in you and me. We now begin to see mysteries of this generation man unfolding in our day.
Demons were known in the Old Testament as an evil spirit. Some of the Assyrian temples or palaces had a large bull image at the entrance. The Hebrew word is like SED with a root SDD, which means "destroy, devastate, be black like the "Satyrs" or hairy ones, devils." They were represented as he goats,or goat idols. The Old Testament often mentions the presence of demons as evil spirits. The Hebrews worshiped satyrs in the wilderness (Lev. 17:7), and later at the bidding of Jeroboam (II Chron. 11:15).
Though their worship at times involved spirits that resembled goats, they did not develop a systematic demonology. God's chosen people were warned against such worship. (Deut. 32:17) "Yes, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons." (Psalms 106:37) The children of Israel worshiped in the very way in which they had been forbidden.
Two demons were given personal names: Azazel, a spirit of the desert to which the sacrificial goat was sent on the Day of Atonement, and Lilith, the night hag which dwelled in ruins. (Isa. 34:14)
The New Testament, which presupposes the intertestamental development of demonology, depicts demons as evil spirits exercising malevolent influence on people or as foreign deities worshiped through idols (Acts 17:18). Jesus' ministry of healing encompassed deliverance from physical and psychological disorders and from demon possession. Though the gospels usually distinguished between the two, they occasionally come close to equating one with the other. (Matt. 17:15-18). In Luke 9:39, epilepsy is also called demon possession. In Mark 1:26, 9:18,20,26, a demon is held responsible for a person's seizures. Jesus healed such demoniacs as the Gerasene in Mark 5:1-20 and Mary Magdalene, in Luke 8:2, who was controlled by seven demons.
God's Word is very clear in the exposure of demons and that Jesus is able to conquer satan's dominion over people (Luke 10:18 and John 12:31). Jesus did not hold the person with a demon personally responsible for their actions and utterances. Jesus commanded and the person was set free.
As we look around us today, we are becoming more and more aware of the oppressing demon forces that are being beckoned to by the world in rebellion against God's Laws, (which are our protection). This booklet is being written to help us to recognize our authority in "the Great Commission" and to "cast out demons" in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Dwelling in the Lamp Lamb. God is calling a people to dwell in the Light of Truth - to reside - be at home in the presence of God.
Our lives are unfolding daily through the things we have given ourselves to - when we choose to serve Jesus. He begins to teach us His ways. As His ways are being understood, we must change from worldly holds and powers of control.
Jesus is the Light - God's Lamb - that is the Truth, the Life, and the Way. "Therefore you are no longer outsiders - exiles, migrants and aliens, excluded from the rights of citizens; but you now share citizenship with the saints - God's own people, consecrated and set apart for Himself; and you belong to God's [own] household." Ephesians 2:19
This book is to encourage every believer in their walk with Jesus.
So often we forget that we are in this world, but not of it. The reactions to our problems of life often discourage and depress us, when God is just trying to teach us to be an overcomer and come over all of death's defeat and be healed in mind, soul, and body.
We find ourselves under condemnation during our learning process, with the enemy hoping that we will accept defeat and quit the battle. Elijah, who this book is about, was God's "man of the hour". He could hear and understand in the Heavenly realm where the Word is stored up. Mighty miracles followed this Prophet of God, until he listened in the natural realm. Jezebel spoke and he listened, letting the enemy drive him in fear. It was so consuming he could no longer listen and obey in the Heavenly realm. Fear had seemingly closed the door!
The Spirit World is very real. There are battles scheduled in this realm that are taking place as we read. God is tuning the ear of the "last day manchild" with great understanding and wisdom. There is a "breaking through" taking place for the "believer". We are recognizing the Voice of the Lord, as we hear the battle cry, and He sends us forth to set creation free!
I believe that, as Spiritual and knowledgeable as we are, we cannot afford to listen to the sounds of defeat in this natural realm. God is calling this generation to defeat the enemy! Our ability to hear is being taught by the Holy Spirit through crisis and problems. We run to God and he delivers us. He makes US deliverers. This dust man, in the natural realm, has been equipped to obey and serve, in the authority of the Name of Jesus.
Our prayer for you, is to encourage you to "listen in the Heavenlies," and carry out God's Great Commission. AMEN!
Behold, a company of people. A foot company with feet that will stand in the brink of the Jordan, the "Descender," the anointing of the Holy Spirit. This is an hour when discipline must come into focus in the church. As good as the programs of man have been, we must obey God's Word so the Divine Order of His plan will be fulfilled in our life. Much is taking place to fill the mind and heart with the desires of an earthly order. But Beloved, God is grooming a people with a heaven mind, a heaven understanding, a heaven hope, and a heaven glory, to possess their inheritance "in Him." God is making ready a people who will keep His commandments, know His voice, and follow Him "whithersoever He goeth."
Today is a day of many changes. The time frame of life is running out and as we look into our Father's Eternal Plan, knowledge is being taught by the Holy Spirit. This "last-day Manchild" is at a transition time. The Word of God requires change through discipline and obedience. This "many membered body" shall walk forth...free...perfected...into the image of Godliness and transfiguration. This little booklet is for you to use as a tool...a guideline...to help us understand the complex mixture our generations have become. IT IS IN NO WAY COMPLETE! It seems to be necessary for we, the Church, as we begin to understand that we belong to a vast host being prepared for the victory of "Millennium" and the Day of the Lord.
Our prayer is for the seriousness of this great moment to be revealed to you. May the preparation of Faith and each area of your life be examined with the Love of God through His Holy Spirit. The authority of the name of Jesus will always set you free!
Much of this information has been gathered from the numerous people who have been willing to recognize the enemy and fight the battle. As we have said, "It is by no means complete, but it is a starting line to recognize your battleground and win the victory!"
In today's busy society and culture, our time is so precious and the coming of our Lord seems so very soon. Our hearts are searching for Truth. This last day generation man must examine himself by God's Word - which is Jesus our Savior.
As the light of Jesus is revealed, we are finding a supernatural force of divination. This is one of Satan's counterfeits for the Holy Spirit's gift of discernment. This counterfeit of the enemy is being accepted as the way of God. This must be exposed.
Curses are upon the people. Lives are being controlled by witches and warlocks who, through Satan's strategies, are telling lies to the people. An unsuspecting church system is being manipulated and dominated by strong-willed Jezebel spirits. They are working to encapsulate the mind to bring control - like the caterpillar who is working to be free. This divination is like a cocoon around the people. There is a wrestling taking place, as in the caterpillar nature. Divination's control is being exposed as the battle rages.
Jezebel was a Phoenician princess. She very cleverly brought her idolatry into Israel. Paganistic worship was brought into Ahab's court on a grand scale. This was an abomination in God's sight, yet it was accepted.
Today we are beginning to realize this same demonic spirit is raging out of a blind, rebellious generation. This is being exposed because man sought other sources for his life, other than the covenant blood of Jesus.
Satan has seen to it that fascination and excitement can bring on the power of control of another person's being. The execution of this force is out of hand. Many church people are shouting to rap mind control music. A frenzy is being produced and God's Word is being neglected. What is happening? People are sick, weak, and are being forced into this deception's control.
What must we do? The only person you can change is yourself. By examining our self, our attitudes, and our personality tendencies, we must look for Jezebel and her curse in our bloodline. We must take the command of "The Great Commission" and cast out this demonic force, and break every curse, in Jesus' Name.
John 5:24 - "I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, the person whose ears are open to My words [who listens to My message] and believes and trusts in and clings to and relies on Him Who sent Me has (possesses now) eternal life. And he does not come into judgment [does not incur sentence of judgment, will not come under condemnation], but he has already passed over out of death into life." (Amph.)
John 6:63 - "It is the Spirit Who gives life [He is the Life-giver]: the flesh conveys no benefit whatever [there is no profit in it]. The words (truths) that I have been speaking to you are spirit and life." (Amph.)
The Word says:
Romans 8:2 - "For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death." (Amph.)
II Timothy 1:10 - "[It is that purpose and grace] which He now has made known and has fully disclosed and made real [to us] through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, Who annulled death and made it of no effect and brought life and immortality (immunity from eternal death) to light through the Gospel." (Amph.)
I John 3:2 - "Beloved, Now are we the sons of God, but it doth not yet appear what we shall be: we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is." (KJV)
In this last day generation man, God has planned with all of us in mind. We are the heirs of salvation (deliverance). "God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living soul." (Genesis 2:7) Jesus Christ took the keys of death and hell, giving man the gift of eternal life.
What do we mean - the mind of man? Webster states it is "the intellectual or intelligent power in man; the understanding; the power that conceives, judges or reasons." Sometimes the mind is spoken of as "sound," "disordered," weak," or "strong."
A changing world is of a changing mind. Like our "computer tech age," the mind is being searched with programs which are expanding its abilities. However wonderful and great this is, the enemy knows our capacity. In this last day battle satan is vying for all the ground he can gain.
Our land is full of demon activity, murder, violence, hatred, death, etc. It seems we are being bombarded with everything that is comprised in evil. The mind of man is the prize. An identity change is trying to take place. The end will be possession if satan has his way.
I believe we are very near to the coming of the Lord. The "spiritual man" must be developed and ready. We have been bequeathed the "mind of Christ" as part of our inheritance. Jesus is the Truth, the Life, and the Way in this last day. There is a preparation taking place. Transition is occurring by walking out of death into life.
Satan works in the death realm. His plan is the destruction of God's image. But praise God, we are going to become God's image. However, it takes travail and pain. We are groaning, and creation is groaning, waiting for the manifestation of God's sons. (Romans 8:19)
This is a word of encouragement to the Body of Christ. We are living in a day when great and mighty changes are scheduled to take place. The plan of God is continuing to unfold in this age. Like the travail of the birthing principle, we are travailing - "wrestling, struggling, to win the victory," over this death realm.
Everything in God's Word is written to be complete and perfect. It all fits together. Every word and action describes Jesus. We see Him walking out our inheritance in this earth, right in the place where perfection can be understood geographically and supernaturally. Dwelling in the city of the Comforter, Capernaum (Matthew 17), is not just a coincidence, or because He liked living by the water. (Sea of Galilee)
Our Great and Mighty God spoke a word into space with such energy and power that it brought forth a perfect creation day. All that is needed to understand and complete us in Him, is in His Word. Some would say it is a mystery... and yes, it is hidden... reserved in readiness for each person who is willing to receive it and be perfected. Our inheritance belongs to us. (Romans 8:14) We are Kingdom Seed - God's divine order seen in us who are ready to wrestle unto victory. (I Corinthians 15:49) Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, so shall we also bear the image of the MAN of heaven. We have inherited Eternal Life....VICTORY!
"To Him Who ever loves us and has once [for all] loosed and freed us from our sins by His own blood, and formed us into a kingdom [a royal race], priests to His God and Father..." This is what is happening today. He is forming us into this kingdom priesthood by causing us to understand, we are separated from the world and we have been bought with the price of the blood of Jesus. When we go through deliverance and get set free, we become Kings and priests. Deliverance for us is coming before the Lord to wash ourselves as the priest had to do before they could enter the presence of the Lord. Ex. 29:35-37.
The priests were all members of Aaron's family. Aaron was the first high priest and he was succeeded by his son and so on, generation after generation. Only one high priest held the office at a time. The only reason for the change was his death.
Exodus 28:1 says, "From among the Israelites take your brother Aaron and his sons with him, that he may minister to Me in the priest's office, even Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar, Aaron's sons." The meanings of Aaron and his son's names show the use of the five-fold ministry necessary to bring forth this office of the priesthood.
1. Aaron means, "the light bringer." He was like the apostle ministry, showing forth the Truth of God.
2. Nadab means, "the willing one." He was like the prophet who was willing to be used of the Lord.
3. Abihu means, "God is Father." He is like the evangelist who brings the ministry of father nurturing and understanding and growth as a father looks at his children for growth and maturing.
4. Eleazar means, "God is helper," like the pastor who is always aware of the needs of his people. He is not seeking his own, or building up kingdoms. He is always willing to pour out, to help the people, so they can stand.
5. Ithamar means, "the land of the palms." The palm tree is symbolic of victory. It grows successfully in very dry places because it has the ability to put its roots deep enough to find the hidden springs of water. This is the teacher who is rooted in the Truth of the Word of God.
This precious anointing of the high priest cannot be handled loosely. When Moses was commanded to anoint Aaron and his sons for the priesthood, the Word says, "They stood before the congregation and Moses washed them." Nothing in the natural realm could keep them from being prepared to minister to the Lord.
The Word shows us several distinct differences between a prophet and a priest:
1. A prophet speaks for God to man.
2. A priest speaks for man to God.
3. A prophet acts for God before man.
4. A priest acts for man before God.
Hebrews 5:1-2 gives us the definition of a priest:
1. He is taken from among men.
2. He is ordained for men.
3. He is ordained, set apart for men in the things of God.
4. He is to offer gifts and sacrifices for men.
5. He is to be full of compassion for the ignorant and those who have fallen by the way.
Aaron was a high priest appointed by God. His sons were priests under, and in association with him. Aaron and his sons constituted a priestly family. Aaron was a shadow and type of the priestly ministry which was to come. Aaron was a priest after the order of mortal man, while Jesus Christ was a priest after the order of Melchizedek, the deathless, immortal man. Melchizedek was the King of Righteousness and the King of Peace. Hebrews 7:1-4 tells us he had no "record of father or mother or ancestral line, nor beginning of days or ending of life."
Aaron was on the earth as the priest of an earthly tabernacle. Christ was never a priest on earth, for there were already priests who offered the gifts in accordance to the law. (Hebrews 8:4) Aaron ceased to be the high priest when he died. Christ became our High Priest only after He died, by and through His resurrection, as it is written in Hebrews 9:12 and 24, and Acts 13:33.
Just as Aaron was a type and shadow of the priestly ministry that was to come through Jesus Christ, Jesus is the pattern that has been set before us. I Peter 2:9 says, "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God's] own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."
Beloved, God is calling forth a people who will answer the call of the priesthood, so the priestly ministry will come forth in this last day.
All the days of our lives we are experiencing some kind of authority. As we meet Jesus, and He changes our lives, we must become obedient and disciplined to His ways. God's Laws are our protection. Thus, we begin to understand what the parenting process has taught us. The Lord, our God, wants His household to be full of love, peace, and joy. ALWAYS! His intention is to fully equip us to mature and grow up with this great understanding! This message is given with the prayer that God's Government, the authority of the Name of Jesus, will change your life, and that you will begin to take on the image of a mature son...a manchild, and overcomer, the image and likeness of Jesus. With our inherited authority of the Name of Jesus, we can realize Blessings that will flow through our lives. As His Name is relied upon, our life will become A SANCTUARY OF HIS PEACE!
Isaiah 1:27-7 - "Hear, O Heavens, and give ear O Earth, for the Lord has spoken; I have nourished and brought up sons and have made them great and exalted, and they have rebelled against Me and broken away from Me. The ox instinctively knows his owner, and the donkey his master's crib; but Israel does not know or recognize Me as Lord. My people do not consider or understand. Ah, sinful nation, a people loaded with iniquity, (rebellion), offspring of evildoers, sons who deal corruptly! They have forsaken the Lord, they have despised and shown contempt and provoked the Holy One of Israel to anger, they have become utterly estranged - alienated. Why should you be stricken and punished any more (since it brings no correction)? You will revolt more and more. The whole head is sick and the whole heart is faint (feeble, sick and nauseated). From the sole of the foot even to the head there is no soundness or health in the nation's body, but wounds and bruises and flesh and bleeding stripes. They have not been pressed out and closed up, or bound up, or softened with oil. [No one has troubled to seek a remedy.] (Because of your detestable disobedience) your country lies desolate, your cities are burned with fire; your land, strangers devour it in your very presence and it is desolate, as overthrown by aliens."
There are coming events, End-Time events that are being fulfilled before our very eyes. This great mystery - A Pale Horse as if made so by "bruising," must be understood. Bruised blood seen in the earth and only the perfect blood of Jesus can change its identity and heal its wound. We see a bruise in this last generation man. The skin is not broken. You can still see the family resemblance. However, the mixture within shows the wound without.
God is unfolding His mysterious plan. There is an expectancy in His people. God is our source and none can separate us from His love. Behold, the sons of God as they stand in the fullness of Jesus as inheritors of perfect blood.
A true temple is being built. Zechariah 6:15 says, "And those who are far off (our day) shall come and help build the temple of the Lord. And you shall know that the Lord sent me (Zechariah) to you. And (your part in this) shall come to pass, if you will diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God."
God is doing great and wonderful things in this earth, isn't He? The closer we get to this climax and final hour in God, the more mighty and majestic and glorious are His people... His ecclesia, His called-out sons, out of the womb of the morning, "at the beginning of your understanding." God is making a people ready to know how to feast in His presence.
Let's pray: Father, I thank You that Your word is neigh us, even in our mouth. And I thank You Father that it never returns to You void, but it does all that You sent it to do. Now Father, we command our being to Your attention, and we ask You God to write Your word indelibly upon our hearts. We pull down vain imaginations, everything that would set itself up against truth, for we would hear from You, Lord. For Your word is mighty and You have come and You have chosen this earthly container as Your dwelling place. So Father, we make ready for learning, and we ask You to teach us. Let our understanding be fruitful, Lord. The very nature of the Holy Ghost – wisdom and understanding, let it rise within us that our spirit is taught of the excellent things that are so glorious to this Omega people, this end-time people, this finished word people. And Father God, we just praise you and we thank you Lord that we can glorify Your name and to handle the things of truth and be fed at Your table. So Father, we bless You and Praise You. We ask now Jesus – be all in us all You want to be! AMEN!
The disciples looked at the Master with curiosity and amazement. They had never seen him like this before. What was he going to do? He stood in the great door of the Temple, feet spread apart, and breathing deeply as he surveyed the scene. He had climbed the steep paths of Mount Moriah with his disciples in great anticipation. They were approaching the house of God, the Temple of the most High, and the Spirit of God that rested upon him quickened his pulse as they came near to this great symbolic structure. He had just recently defeated Satan and returned from the wilderness in the power of the Spirit. Water had been turned into wine at Cana, and now it was the time of Passover, and they had gone to Jerusalem to worship. The Passover lamb was to be offered, and this time was especially of much significance to Jesus. He had come to the Temple with great expectation in his heart.
