As God’s prophetic time clock ticks down to midnight, what Christians need to be aware of is the immergence of what the Bible calls ‘Mystery Babylon,’ not the Antichrist. Once you get the dramatic imagery used in scripture behind you, the major ideas are quite simple to understand. Long before the Antichrist is revealed, Mystery Babylon will take center stage, completing her mission of seducing and luring naive and un-watchful Christians away from the love of Christ. ~ “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Matthew 24.12,13).

Babylon the Great

Time and time again, Christians are warned to be soberly watching for the signs and events that will signal the end of the age. The sequence of the events makes it clear that at this moment Mystery Babylon is what is to be on guard against because it is taking place now, before the Antichrist and the mark of the beast. ~ So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast…the woman was…adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls…And on her forehead a name [was] written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Revelation 17.3-5). The harlot is the wayward church that has committed spiritual adultery by turning away from the true faith and leading her children (Christians) into her whoredoms. Notice, the woman is riding on the beast, indicating her collaboration with the Beast System… the one world government of the Antichrist.

The Tower of Babel

Now, the only thing remaining is to extrapolate Babylon the Great, which is revealed in the book of Genesis. ~ “Now the whole earth had one language…and they said, go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top [may reach] unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. Therefore, is the name of it called Babel [Babylon]” (Genesis 11.1,4,9). In brief, Babylon the Great is the worship of human power and ingenuity and dependence upon it, instead of God. They built “…a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven,” which is to say that they became their own ‘gods,’ even building a tower reaching unto heaven, by the works of their hands. They became their own gods by worshiping the work of their own hands. This is the basic definition of idolatry. The prophet Isaiah decried ~ “Their land is also full of idols; They worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made” (Isaiah 2.8). The Beast, which carries the woman, is the ancient Babylonian system of human government and economics that has seduced the woman (church) into harlotry and corruption. The ‘mystery’ is how the beast system appears at the end of age and once more gains control of the entire earth, as it did in the beginning at the tower of Babel, which also was a one world system which was believed to reach unto heaven.

The Global Reset

The World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland is at this moment using the Covid19 virus to initiate what they call ‘The Great Reset,’ a one-world-government, which is established by the installation of a new single global economic system that controls the economy of every man and woman on earth (https://www.weforum.org/great-reset/). Notice, Mystery Babylon is a ‘One World’ system that pretends to reach heaven upon the earth. This is what is presently happening to Christians at this very moment. This is what believers need to be alert to, against permitting themselves to be seduced and coerced away from God and the Bible by this demonic and Satanic system, which is the Beast itself. The Beast IS the one-world-government by which the Antichrist will eventually rule the world—the ‘Mystery Babylon’ is the revival of the one world beast system at the end of the age.

The Great Apostacy

The word ‘apostasy’ means to ‘defect’ or to abandon something. The origin of this term is found in the book of 2Thessalonians ~ “Let no one deceive you by any means; for [that Day will not come] unless the falling away [of the church] comes first, and the man of sin [antichrist] is revealed, the son of perdition” (2Thessalonians 2.3). At this moment, hundreds of millions of so-called Christians are being seduced into spiritual adultery by the Great Whore through the riches of her fornication with Beast, the riches of this world. Let’s have another quick look at the Great Harlot. Remember she is carried by the Beast, who is comprised of many kings of the earth, and she is adorned with gold and silver. ~ “The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication” (Revelation 17.4).

The Chosen

Even now Christians and churches all over the world are conforming more every day to the beast system. The first thing most Christians look for is a church with the appearance of money and that conforms closely to the ideals of the world, not a church that follows closely to the model set forth in the Bible of the early church. Instead of being the family of God, the business model with the norms and characteristics of the world system, which is run by money and human government, become more evident. Those who are called and chosen and form part of the elect of God, who are counted1 worthy to escape the Beast system and overcome the temptations of the Great Whore, are those who have no fascination with conformity to the world, which operates on money. They are the holy ones who God has set apart, who hear and obey the voice of the Good Shepherd and ~ “…they will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him, for they do not know the voice of strangers” (John 10.5).

Revelation 18:3,4

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

The one thing theologians agree upon is for immortality genuine faith is the only imperative. However, the fact remains 99% of Christians have no real idea as to what the Bible is talking about when it speaks of ‘faith.’ We only know natural faith, human faith — not the faith of God. Scripture plainly states that ‘not all men have faith.’ ~ “And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for not all have faith” (2Thessalonians 3.2). All men have natural, or human faith, but not all have the kind of faith that Jesus talks about, the faith that raises the dead, stops the wind, and moves mountains. The Bible says that this kind faith, the ‘God’ kind of faith comes from the word of God.  It is not until an individual comes into contact with the word of God that he is he able to obtain the Bible kind of faith. Faith is communication with God.

The Spirit of Faith

Faith is the Spirit of God speaking to the spirit of man, revealing things to his spirit. The Apostle Paul wrote ~ “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God” (Romans 8.16). The Holy Spirit is revealing something to our spirit, something that is still not visible to the natural eye, but it is just as real as other physical things that are visible to the natural eye, Because… ~ “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible” (Hebrews 11.3). Faith lifts us up out of the limitations of the natural world and catapults us into the spiritual world where ~ “… all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9.23).

How Faith Works

The Bible defines faith ~ “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11.1). From where does this divine conviction come? — It comes from the Holy Spirit through the word1 of God. Jesus explained it this way, He said ~”However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come…He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare [it] to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare [it] to you” (John 16.13-16). Faith is the key to understanding God and the Bible. Most people fail to recognize that it is impossible to even ‘come to God’ without faith. In the book of Hebrews, it is written ~ “But without faith [it is] impossible to please [Him], for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and [that] He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11.6).

Your Ticket to Paradise

God richly rewards those who seek Him by Faith. Faith is the chief requirement in the New Testament. The writer of the book of Roman’s states that ~ “…for whatever is not from faith is sin” (Romans 14.23). Mankind is saved by faith alone and condemned to eternal judgement for unbelief. ~ “knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified” (Galatians 2.16). Learning how to have faith is much more than only discovering how to ‘receive’ from God.

Why God Demands Faith

God is a spirit, but our physical nature (consciousness) obstructs us from contacting Him; thus, faith is imperative if we are to know God and be reconciled to Him. Real faith is a spiritual exercise that brings us into relationship with God. Faith brings us into the very presence2 of God and totally transforms us to the point that we become one spirit3 with God. As you learn to live by faith, you begin to walk each day in closer communion with God. In a world where there are more questions than answers, it is nice to know that at the end of the day God only requires one thing. Stay tuned because building and maintaining a strong foundation of faith upon time-tested biblical principles will be examined in a number of coming blogs.

Romans 5.1-2

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Why wait for the millennium? You can escape the evils of the end of the age now; no quantum leaps necessary. There are no pandemics, shipping crisis, or inflation issues in heaven. God has enabled His children to access the blessings and security of the world to come right here and now. The only thing necessary is to know what is given and to understand how to access it. The Christian has already been delivered from the violence, corruption and economic ruin we now see being poured out upon the lost of this world as we draw on step closer to the end of the age with the passing of each new day. ~ “Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father” (Galatians 1.4).

Taking the High Road

It is nothing more than understanding what Christ actually did for the believer when He rose from the dead on the third day and following His instructions. Jesus is the prototype. He demonstrated to us the fruit of the true Christian life. He was not subject to the evils and constraints of this present age. Like a time-traveler, Jesus was living in this present, but he was not restricted to the limitations and curses of the present age. He was already living according to the laws and blessings of the millennium, the thousand-year reign of Christ in the age to come where there is no curse and man is transformed into the image of God. ~ “Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9.23).

Escaping from the Ruins

Jesus demonstrated to us how to enjoy the privileges of time travel which operates by faith so that we could be saved from the evils of this present age, and so that we could save others by teaching them how to operate the powerful spiritual laws that can catapult anyone out of the weakness and suffering of this present age, which is cursed of God, and transport them into the benefits of the world to come. This is what Jesus was doing when He walked on the water, multiplied the bread, spoke to the wind and the waves, and raised the dead. But this was not a special privilege that belonged exclusively to Jesus because he was the Son of God. No, this was something that Christians in all generations have understood clearly and practiced every day of their lives. Consider the words of the Apostle Paul writing to the Christians in the church of the Galatians… ~ “But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?” (Galatians 4.9).

The Bondage of the World System

These were Christians who, like so many in our present generation, were born again and began their time travel into the blessings of the age to come and had been set free from the ‘beggarly elements’ that bring people into the bondage in this present age;’ however, false teachers had destroyed their faith and robbed them of their blessings. ~ “I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off!” (Galatians 5.12). Like the Galatians, the solution was the removal of the false teachers. Paul is saying that the cause by which these people lost their faith and had fallen back under the bondage of the beggarly elements of this present world system was due to their complacency and apathetic addiction to false doctrine. Like leaven, only a tiny amount can stop the wheels of time from turning in your favor. These people have the dishonor in the Bible of being those who listened to false teachers, to men who had no personal revelation of the Spirit of God because God had not sent them.

The Lost Key

The Bible say that it is easy to know if someone is really sent by God or not. Scripture tells us… ~ “For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God” (John 3.34). And the Galatians knew it, but they refused to follow the Spirit and continued listening to the leaven until their spirit grew cold and their faith faded away. Notice what the apostle Paul told them to do ~ “A little leaven leavens the whole lump” (Galatians 5.9). There will always be plenty of false ministers. However, only those who choose to listen to them will be affected by their jargon and be judged for aiding and abetting the promulgation of false doctrine. Paul gives them the key. He said it’s their responsibility, not God’s, to remove all human teaching, which is the leaven, and only permit that which is obviously anointed and directed by the Holy Spirit. The key to deliverance from the evils of this present age is ‘pure’ doctrine, the teaching of the unadulterated word of God under the fire of the Holy Spirit.

The Truth Behind the Lies

Only a tiny amount of leaven destroys the faith that is necessary to fuel the spiritual time machine. In closing, the object is to first perceive with the spiritual eye the power and privileges granted to the child of God in this present age by Jesus Christ. The only way to do this is by the anointing of God ministered to the believer via the preaching of the word of God. Notice the method Christ used and what happened to these young men Jesus preached the scriptures to them. ~ “He [Jesus] expounded to them in all the Scriptures. Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him” (Luke 24.27,31).

Deuteronomy 11.21 That your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth.

Most believers don’t think of their local government as the arm of the Antichrist, but that’s exactly the way scripture tells us it will go down. The antichrist is a politician. He is called ‘the beast’ in scripture, and his governmental administration is called the beast system. The mark of beast is an insignia or superscription of the regime. This tyrannical body quickly ascends to a place of global dominion, to the extent that it will eventually control even the smallest financial expenditure.

The Rise of Authoritarianism

With the dawn of each new day, we see this infernal autocracy emerging before our eyes. Who would have dreamed that by taking advantage of a synthetic crises a politically driven media would be the primal tool used in the implementation of one global governmental institution with the power to control whether churches can congregate, whether people can work, whether they can go to the store or even leave their home? Speaking of the Antichrist System of the last days, the Apostle wrote: ~ “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13.16,17).

A New Method of World Domination

Neither hyperinflation nor the Russian-Ukraine war are concrete evidence that antichrist has arrived; however, the disintegration of human rights and the augmentation of government control over the free citizens of the world could easily prepare the way for a one-world government that exercises police enforced control over every man, woman, and child on earth as is mentioned will occur shortly before the return of Christ.  ~ “It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation” (Revelation 13.7). The world has never seen a single Governing body with absolute control over the entire globe, which is one of the unique characteristics of antichrist. The WHO (World Health Organization), for example, is now functioning in a very similar capacity to that which is described in the book of Revelation.

The Fall of Modern Civilization

Countries who have long been considers stalwart bastions of free and democratic rule, like Australia, Canada & Ireland have hastily morphed into a fatal mixture of socialism and fascism. Millions of the worlds’ most outstanding yet unsuspecting citizens from every corner of the globe have suffered the unconstitutional loss of such basic human rights as using public transportation, traveling out of state, entering public schools, or public places, or even grocery stores. Christians must be vigilant and resist the erosion of their constitutional rights of freedom of religion, freedom to congregate, and freedom of speech. These human rights have already been greatly infringed upon over the last ten years with the rise of alternative lifestyles, the green movement, and the government usurping control of the public education system. ~ “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 24.9, Mark 13.13). However, Christians are not to fear the things that are coming upon the earth, as Jesus1 said.

Who will be Saved?

God promises special protection and provision through faith in his promises to those of His children who inhabit the earth at the end of the age. ~ “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But not a hair of your head shall be lost” (Luke 21.17,18). As is always the case with God, the key is true genuine faith in the promises of God by which the believer becomes partaker of the divine nature and the new2 creation created in the righteousness3 of God, as perfectly as is stated in the New Testament. The only righteous person, true believer, is he who has his faith developed, as is taught daily in our blogs and ministry publications, to the point that his life is genuinely sustained by faith, everything he does is done by faith. He literally lives by faith alone, putting no trust in the arm of the flesh and the transformations and characteristics of his life demonstrate the authenticity of his faith.

God’s End Time Escape Plan

Jesus plainly stated that only the family of faith will be saved from the outpouring of the wrath of God upon the final generation. He said ~ “I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18.8). The Apostle John in the book of Revelation, makes it clear that millions of believers in the last days will lose their faith and be rejected by God. ~ “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” (Revelation 3.14,16). It is time to become part of the family of faith in the earth, those men and women who understand and live by faith and are not ashamed to take their place in communion with the family of faith in God’s house, leaving the luke-warm church in the last days that John prophesied about behind. It’s time to get serious about faith and the word of God.

Ephesians 6.16

Above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

What could be much worse than the China ailment is the complete collapse of the global economy, which for all intents and purposes is already well underway. People all over the world are already feeling the pain of what 2,000 years ago Jesus prophesied would happen in the last days of the present age we are now witnessing. The prophecy of Christ of the signs of the end of the age says… ~ “And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven” (Luke 21.11). The Biblical term for economic upheaval is ‘famine,’ and the word for plague is ‘pestilence.’ In short, what is called ‘The Recession’ of 2007-2009 has never really ended — federal banks back then all over the world simply began printing fake money (Quantitative Easing – QE) and injected that false currency into their economies, which is now producing what most economists predict will be a more severe global Economic Depression than the Great Depression of the 1920s, when ‘the money failed.’

The Crown Conqueror

The world has now entered uncharted waters. ~ “So when the money failed in the land of Egypt and in the land of Canaan, all the Egyptians came to Joseph and said, “Give us bread, for why should we die in your presence? For the money has failed” (Genesis 47.15). The Apostle John confirmed the prophetic words of Jesus and provided a few additional details in his prophecy of the Four Riders of the Apocalypse, which are the first events that comprise the beginning of the last seven-year period known as the ‘The Tribulation.’  Many Bible scholars are now saying that the crown on the first horse, the white horse, refers to the ‘corona virus.’ The word ‘Corona’ means ‘The Crown Virus.’ And the ‘bow’ of the rider of the white horse refers to setting all the nations of the earth at enmity with one another, preparing them for the great War of Armageddon which is symbolized by the fourth house, the Pale Horse. ~ “And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer” (Revelation 6.2).

Lawlessness & Anarchy

The red horse speaks of the violence, rioting, and social unrest in the streets and the black horse means famine or economic disaster. ~ “Another horse, fiery red, went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword. When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand” (Revelation 6.4-5). The phrase “…  take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another,” refers to social violence, lawlessness, and anarchy in the street of every major city in the world caused by economic crisis. And the phrase “…  pair of scales in his hand,” refers to poverty.  As is always the case, God has already carefully prepared His chosen people for the approaching economic storm.

The Hour of Spiritual Deception

By divine providence God engineered the great spiritual awakening of the Western Church that took place in the 1980s, when God sent special revelation to his people to develop in them the faith necessary to believe specifically for healing, protection and financial provision. However, as is always the case, Satan defamed and mocked that which was the greatest spiritual movement of God since the revivals of the early 1900s. The false priests and spiritually dead leaders of a small number of organizations became jealous of the huge multitudes of the faith movement that formed the first megachurches, and Christian television ministries, and with the help of Satan they blasphemed this special ministry of the Holy Spirit, and many naive Christians lost their faith and fell back into mediocre luke-warm Christianity. But what will they do now, those who mocked the word of God for financial provision? What will they say now that their people are starving for food? Jesus forewarned about these false prophets and the fate of the simpletons who follow them and participate in the propagation of their religious lies. ~ “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the kingdom of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in” (Matthew 23.13).

The Only Safe Heaven

All of our publications are focused on equipping and instructing those who follow them as to how to prepare for the financial crisis by learning that God is the faithful provider of His people, how to live by faith, and that the only safe place on earth is in His presence. Even if the signs we are now seeing are not those of the end of the age, it is clear that we entering dangerous times and witnessing disturbing events worldwide. Jesus said ~ “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock” (Matthew 7.24,25). The storm clouds paint the horizon and rise into the blackness of night; it is time for the chosen few to return to God and get serious about Jesus Christ, who is The Word of God.

Luke 18.8

“I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?”

The golden table inside the Temple is one of only three objects in the Holy place. Each one of these sublime objects reveal venerable hidden truths about entering into the presence of God and all of the benefits that accompany such divine privilege. Innumerable books could be written about the golden table alone; however, today we will try to cover as much as we can beginning with the main points. Before anything else can be said, it must be made clear that the laws of proper biblical exposition dictate that all symbolic interpretation must be supported by scripture itself. This is to say that the Bible must interprets itself. Everything must be confirmed by scripture. Let’s read what Paul wrote about biblical interpretation keeping in mind that Christ is THE WORD OF GOD. ~ “Attaining to all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge… the unsearchable riches of Christ” (Colossians 2.2,3, Ephesians 3.8).

In the Presence of Holiness

Now let’s take a look at what the Bible says about the Golden Table that is in the Holy place In the Temple of God. ~ “Thus Solomon had all the furnishings made for the house of the LORD: the altar of gold, and the table of gold on which was the showbread” (1Kings 7.48). The first thing that scripture tells us is that the table represents the table of Passover and the communion table which are the same. This is what is meant by the words: ‘The Lord’s Table.’ The New Testament mentions The Lord’s Table speaking of Communion as well, but let’s look at the book of Malachi as the prophet speaks about how Israel defiled the Feast of Passover… ~ “You offer defiled food on My altar… By saying, ‘The table of the LORD is contemptible” (Malachi 1.7). Remember, Passover is called Communion in the New Testament. The two words together ‘Passover’ and ‘Communion,’ when we put them together then, mean deliverance and protection by communion with God.

The Bread of Communion

Through Passover the children of Israel were protected from the plagues and catastrophes of Egypt (the world). And the word ‘Communion’ tells us that the Passover Feast brings us into intimate communion with God where we are protected.  Let’s take another look at the Golden Table ~ “You shall also make a table… And you shall overlay it with pure gold… And you shall set the showbread on the table before Me always” (Exodus 25:23,24,30). Notice, God says, “… the table [is] before Me always.” Also, we see that the Golden Table is located in the very presence of God in the Holy Place in the Temple of God, where absolutely no evil can enter at any time. Notice, that the bread on the table is the bread of Communion, which is also the bread of Passover. The fascinating thing is that the bread is literally called ‘The Bread of the Presence’ or even more literally the word means ‘The bread of the Face.’ This word is probably the most erroneously translated word in the Bible. Almost every version of the Bible translates it differently. The best Bibles call it “the bread of the presence.”

The Golden Table

The Spanish Bible calls it ‘the bread of propitiation.’ However, and interestingly enough, anyone can consult a good Bible dictionary and see that the true definition is — ‘The Bread of the Face of God,’ or/and ‘The Bread of the Presence of God.’ Vine’s Dictionary, which is widely considered one of the best, defines the Hebrew word here as this — “bread of the face,” i.e., the presence, referring to the Presence of God” (Vine’s Expository Dictionary). So, what does this mean? What is the bread of the Face that is set on the Golden Table that is always before God in the Holy Place in the Temple of God? What it means is — when Communion is properly understood and put into practice, it will bring believer right into the very presence of God, even into the Face of God. It will put him face to face with God Almighty. All of those who desire to truly know God intimately should pay special attention to that which is here written. Let it be said that, as in the case of any table in any house, the table is the principal place of Communion in the house, which is usually accompanied by food (the bread).

Face to Face with God

Let it be clear that the bread that conducts the child of God into His presence must be completely free of leaven. As we have already demonstrated in previous blogs in this series – unleavened bread in the Bible means 100% pure doctrine that is COMPLETELY pure of all human contamination by men. Most people cannot enter into the presence of God because they are addicted to leavened bread. They are not diligent about the doctrine that they consume. They are unclean because they constantly consume unclean food. God will not permit one crumb of leaven (erroneous doctrine) or human story-telling, etc. into His presence. Moreover, all unleavened bread must be cooked by holy ‘fire’ by the divinely ordained priests of God. The fire representing the Holy Spirit which removes every trace of human corruption, leaving only what is inspired and directed by the pure anointing fire of the Holy Spirit. Now you know how to sit down and commune with God face-to-face. ~ “Therefore you shall sacrifice the Passover to the LORD your God, from the flock and the herd, in the place where the LORD chooses to put His name. You shall eat no leavened bread with it” (Deuteronomy 16:2,3).

Revelation 3.20

Behold, I (Jesus) stand at the door (of the heart), and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

When God changed Jacob’s name to Israel, He was telling all of His children those who serve effectively are royalty, they are indeed royalty as soon as they realize the truth and appropriate it by faith into their lives. The word ‘Israel’ means “Prince with God.” The fact is that most of those who follow God do not ‘know’ God. Many of them have spent countless years or even decades in some cases hearing about God, but they don’t ‘hear God.’ They study, analyze, and memorize; but they don’t ‘know’ God intimately because they have never taken their place at the King’s table as His royal linage. ~ “They seek Me daily, And delight to know My ways…you search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life… but you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life” (Isaiah 58.2, John 5.39,40).

The Intimacy of Father & Son

They love to know all about God, but decline to come to God so they can know Him. ~ “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” (Matthew 7.22,23). Note that the condition here was ‘knowning God,’ not knowing about Him. These ‘so called’ Christians were so deceived by their religious routines that they actually thought they knew God, when in reality they had worked against Him their entire life. How could anyone think they were a child of God without knowing Him and living in communion with Him every day. Jesus demonstrated what a true child of God is ~ “I do nothing of Myself; but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things” (John 8.28).

The Father & His Children

Jesus didn’t do anything except what the Father had told Him to do. His communion with Father was constant. He lived in the Father’s presence day and night. Jesus said He is ‘the1 way’ and He is ‘the Son.’ — He is the only way to be a son, a child of God. The only children of God are those who are in relationship with God, in communion. These are the true children who leave all behind and come into communion with the father and the son. ~ “Then they also brought infants to Him that He might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to Him and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God” (Luke 18.15,16).

The Family of God

How did the children come to the Father? They had to come to Jesus by His true disciplines (children), which symbolizes the church. Every true child of God is born by the virgin mother, the³ church. Never confuse a servant from a prince. If one desires to enter into the house of God, it can only done by entering into communion with His children first. This is clearly taught by both the Passover celebration in the Old Testament and the Communion sacrament in the New Testament. ~ “And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever” (John 8.35).

In the Father’s Presence

It is impossible to have communion or Passover without first assembling correctly with the family of God. Every child of God will take his place at the table of intimate communion with the Father and the Son, they will not follow servants, only children. The Apostle John as with the other ministers of our Lord spoke of this many times. Let’s have a look at the first epistle of John the Divine… ~ “That which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ” (1 John 1.3). What kind of a child would refuse to live in his father’s house, or worse refuse to come to His Father’s house, when He called him to come home to his house and stop living with the neighbor? No wonder they have no communion with Him.

The Manifestation of the Sons of God

All intimacy with God begins at the ‘Lord’s table,’ which is the table of true ‘Communion,’ and it only takes place in the house of the Father and with the rest of His sons and daughters. The first thing Jacob did after the Creator pronounced him ‘Prince with God’ was reconcile his relationship with Esau, his brother. As the final hour human history unfolds, God is raising up and releasing a level of power and authority that has never been seen before. He is unveiling what all of creation has been waiting for since the resurrection of Jesus Christ ― The arrival of the Sons of God, His holy princes, who will manifest the matchless brilliance of the Bride of Christ, the glorious church without spot6 or wrinkle.  

Romans 8.19

For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.

Why wait, when you can get to the root of the issue and head off tragedy before illness of some sort begins to take root in your life? Throughout the course of a lifetime, the average person spends a large part of his income, time and energy on health-related concerns; including medical insurance, health foods/meds, and exercise related activities. In the end, the illusive trajectory of the pursuit of good health in the material realm is because the root of disease is spiritual, not physical.    

God Protects His People from all Plagues

According to the Bible all sickness derives from a spiritual root. The solution as well as the cause of disease according to the Bible can be resolved by understanding and practicing the spiritual laws of health and healing that God has revealed in scripture. Every child of God must first be aware of the fact that, not only is God capable of delivering from sickness, God has provided a way for all of His children to protect their entire house. Moses had more experience with sickness caused by plagues than anyone else in the Bible, so we must begin by looking at what he wrote on this precise subject. ~ “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” (Psalm 91.9-10).

Invite God into your Home

The word ‘dwelling’ means “house” or “home.” Here, God has provided every serious-minded Christian with the tools necessary to spiritually inoculate his home freeing it from sickness. Notice, the specific word mentioned here is ‘plague,’ which in simple terms means a type of disease that is affecting an entire community. So, what is the cure and how is it applied? Let’s have another look at what is written. Moses said, ~ “Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” (Psalm 91.9-10). God is not unreasonable, neither is his plan of protection too difficult to adhere to. It is really quite reasonable and quite logical. — If you want God to protect your home, God must first be ‘in’ your house. The plague only comes to the house that God has been evicted from.

The Highest Level of Protection

Those who would prefer to banish sickness from their home instead of banishing God need only to follow God’s simple two step plan — 1. Invite God into your home, and 2. Keep him in your home. The first step is to do as Moses said… ‘make God your permanent residence,’ which literally means to make God your home or as the Bible says it — make God your abode. How is this done?… by following the instructions that Jesus has already given to every born-again believer. If Christians would only follow what Jesus said, they would already be healed and divinely protected. Most of them don’t believe this because they have never been taught it to be true. Exactly the opposite, they’ve been taught to think and believe the opposite! Jesus plainly taught that God becomes our spiritual abode (home) when we abide in His word. Consider the book of John. ~ “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15.7).

Lock the Door

Jesus said that we abide in God, make God our home, when we keep His word abiding in our heart at all times… This is what the word ‘dwell’ (abide) means; it means to stay, to remain, to persist and not leave. So, God abides in our home to the same degree that we have the word abiding in our heart. Take another look at the words of Moses. He said, there are ‘two steps.’ We have already covered the first step, which is when we abide in God. The final step is to make God ‘our refuge.’ A refuge is a place of permanent protection. It is a fortress in which the enemy is absolutely forbidden and cannot enter even for one minute. When the serpent (pestilence) cannot enter your home, he cannot bring sickness with him.

Sanitize Your Home from Disease

It should be obvious that God will not share His castle with the devil, and anyone who secretly traffics the enemy into God’s fortress will be guilty of treason and suffer immediately ejection along with the evil one. Just as the ancient Israelites had to clean out all leaven1 (evil) from their homes in order to be delivered from the plagues of Egypt (world), so it is that God only becomes our refuge when all evil — every evil book, video, word, or thought — has been cast out and kept out. Leaven in the Bible means false doctrine,2 lie, or deceptive concept.It’s time to get your house immunized before for the seven plagues of the last days are poured out in this epoch.

Exodus 15.26

“If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight…I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

God says one thing; the devil says another. Only you can decide, and whatever it is that you let shape the way you see yourself determines the sum total of all you will ever be. Before the Spirit begins doing new works in and through us, His job is to first bring us up to date on the actual realities that are already ours in the spiritual realm. There is no point in reinventing the light switch. All that is necessary is to flip the switch on and one can immediately enjoy all of the modern conveniences that accompany electric light. Imagine the absurdity of someone insisting that God would have to miraculously re-create the light-switch exclusively for him alone or he would refuse to use electric light. That’s how some Christians are today.

The Work of God’s Hands

They refuse to let the Holy Spirit ‘enlighten’ them as to the spiritual realities that God has already given to them. The Bible says, ~ “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God” (1Corinthians 2.12). From the beginning of creation, God’s intentions are clearly set forth. In the first chapter of the Bible, God is seen working and creating the entire universe. As soon as the work of creating the earth and cosmos is completed, immediately God gives everything to man. ~ “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth” (Genesis 1.26).

What is Man?

It is important to emphasize here that the Book of Genesis is not part of the Law of Moses. Moreover, the entire Bible, every one of the sixty-six books that comprise the Bible, all teach the fact that God prospers all of His children who seek and serve Him for “the abundance of all things.” The book of Deuteronomy states outrightly that God desires His children to serve him with joy and gladness ~ “… FOR THE ABUNDANCE OF ALL THINGS” (Deuteronomy 28.47). The idea that God wants His people to live in lack or in need is preposterous and in direct contradiction to the entire word of God, which states thousands of times God’s desire for His children is to reign over all things that He has created. ~ “But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him? You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor, and set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing [that is] not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him” (Hebrews 2.6-8).

All Things have been Given

The arguments put forth to support the theory that God does not prosper His people are simplistic and without Biblical foundation. Those who espouse these false doctrines demonstrate their ignorance of scripture and their opposition to God and His word. The Bible says that God sent His only begotten1 Son to suffer and die on the cross, so that the Father could give “all2 things” to His children. In the book of Romans, we read ~ “He [God] who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?” (Romans 8.32). It says that God “delivered him [Jesus] for us all”3 so that He could “freely give us all things.” God has gone to great trouble and has paid a great price so that He could freely give all things to His children. How it must hurt Him to see his children suffering the lack of things he has already given only because they have never learned how to receive what is theirs, what has already been bought and paid for with the precious blood of Jesus.

Spiritual Knowledge

The first step to receiving from God is to ‘know’ what has been freely given. One cannot have faith to receive something until that which is given has been plainly identified. To make sure we know with certainty all of the things that are ours, the Father has commissioned none other than the Holy Spirit. In 1Corinthians it is written ~ “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.” (1Corinthians 2.12). Jesus said, ‘It will always be done4 to you according your faith.’ So, it’s up to you. Who knows better what you are than your Creator? Are you the weak, sick, limited, hideous mouse the devil has made you out to be, or are you the child created in the image of God who is destined to reign with Him forever?

Proverbs 23.7

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Some things in the Bible are so big, so gargantuous, the mind can’t get around ‘em. It just spits ‘em out. They’re simply too far removed from finite everyday life; albeit, they are indeed true and life-changing if you sit down and let the syntax sink in. Most of us are aware of the verse “great and precious promises” (2Peter 1.4). Well, let’s see if this will fit on your plate!

Hidden in Plain Sight

Since everyone will eventually die, there is only one true escape, and that would be from physical death itself. It is an epic feat, that according to the Bible, only two people have accomplished, and it has been hidden squarely in front of the eyes of all who have embraced the New Testament. Even though, having been read by countless millions, it remains invisible to their consciousness. It is so big, so powerful, so outrageous that it cannot be admitted into the mind and spirit of the average person. Fortunately, if you have been reading this blog for more than a week — you are no average person. Take a look at the book of Hebrews… ~ “By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God” (Hebrews 11.5).

The Greatest Feat in History

We are considering, second only to the resurrection of Messiah, the greatest feat (miracle) recorded in the Bible, or for that matter… recorded in all of the annals of history, and it has a very important and vital connection to every believer who inhabits the earth at this present day as the prophecies of the end of the age fulfill themselves before us. For those who are not familiar with this verse, the term ‘taken away so that he did not see death’ is referring to something very similar to what many people know as ‘the rapture’ of the children of God out of the calamities of the final generation. Referring to God’s great escape plan by which He will miraculously deliver His people out of the midst of the catastrophic events that comprise the final great tribulation period (the final 3-7 years), the Bible states. ~ “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God… hen we who are alive and remain shall be caught up…in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord” (1Thessalonians 4.16-17).

In the Twinkle of an Eye

Two mind-boggling events will occur here. First, as the aforementioned verse reveals, we’ll be ‘caught up together to meet the Lord in the air.’ Millions of true blood washed Christians will instantly disappear from the face of the earth and be translated in the twinkle of an eye into the presence of Jesus Christ ‘in the air.’ Second, their physical body will never die. The last generation who attain unto the ‘catching away’ (rapture) will never die. Their physical body will be transformed, just like Jesus’s resurrected body was. When He rose from the dead on the third day, there was no body left in the tomb because His body had been transformed into a celestial, eternal, and incorruptible body. This transformation will happen at the end of the age to every believer who is alive and called in ‘the first resurrection’ of the church, the rapture. The Apostle Paul writes about this in the book of 1Corinthians. ~ “Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep [die], but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed [raptured].” (1Corinthians 15.51-52).

The Greatest Escape

One must be accustomed to biblical terminology to correctly understand this translation of the Bible. When it is says that ‘we shall not all sleep,’ it means we shall not all suffer the pain of physical death. The last generation will escape part or all ofthe great tribulation upon the earth as God pours out His furious wrath, and the chosen few escape death through the rapture, in an instant… as it is written — ‘in the twinkling of an eye.’ The rapture is called the ‘blessed hope’ in scripture because the child of God can rest assured that the Father has a glorious flight plan out of the darkest moment in world history. ~ “looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ” (Titus 2.13). The only thing that could be greater than this is what is mentioned in the opening lines of this blog. To cut to the chase, your Bible reveals in Hebrews 11.5 that Enoch similarly to the rapture was transported from earth into the presence of God in a heartbeat, and he never tasted death.

How Big is your faith!

What makes this totally beyond what most people can fathom is that Enoch was not raptured by divine providence like the church will be — Enoch was transported ‘by faith.’ Now, that is unquestionably the most monumental act of human faith recorded in the Bible, and it is written in the New Testament because it corresponds to you. Are you tired of waiting for the rapture? Who said you have to wait? God is no respecter of persons. (Call me crazy.) If it was written in the New Testament, Enoch’s walk of faith is your ticket outa here, whether it be before or after the rapture. As the ominous clouds of darkness begin to cover the earth foreboding of the arrival of Antichrist, God is calling His children to get serious about faith. To stop playing games with their faith, so they can escape the things that are coming upon the earth and stand in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mark 9.23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things [are] possible to him who believes.”

Everything comes back to the two trees in the Garden of Eden. The entire Bible and all of the works of God transport us back to Eden and enable each one of us to choose for ourselves what Adam and Eve rejected — to partake of the Tree of Life or of the Tree of Death. ~ “The tree of life [was] also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 2.9). Sin had already contaminated heaven when Lucifer committed the original sin and one third of the angels with him. In order to deal with the sin problem, it was necessary for each person to reject sin and overcome its temptations. Thus, the Tree of the knowledge of death was placed in Eden. ~ “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12.9).

The Key

The two trees correspond to God and Satan. The question of sin must be eternally laid to rest, which requires every man to decide to which of the two trees he corresponds, to the tree of eternal life or to the tree of eternal death. Far too much time is spent focusing on the tree of death and ignoring the Tree of Life, which is by far the most important. It is the Tree of Life that opens the door back to God, eternal life, and all of the blessings of heaven. The power of death is the ‘knowledge of evil,’ and the power of eternal life is the knowledge of love (God), which ~ “has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, [who] has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men” (2Timothy 1.10, John 1.4). The key that opens the door back into the garden paradise is the reality of ‘oneness’ of God. The power and brilliance of God rests in the unity of the divine godhead, the all-glorious three in one God.

Oneness with God

The Tree of Life brings man into eternal life, which is unity with God. Jesus is the ‘True Vine,’ the Tree of Life, by which we are made ‘one’ with the Trinity, the Holy Angels, the glorified saints, and the rest of creation. By Jesus, the anointed (living) word, we enter into and abide IN the divine Trinity, the True Tree of Life. Christ said ~ “I am the true vine. Abide in Me, and I in you. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you” (John 15.1,4,7). The key to understanding God and the entire Bible is the single nature of God, the divine Trinity. 183 times in the New Testament, the term ‘in Christ’ or ‘in Him’ or ‘in His body (etc.) appear in the New Testament. All of these terms refer to man’s reconciliation into complete oneness with the Father and the Son through the Holy Spirit, who gives life to our human spirit, making us one spirit with God again. ~ “But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him” (1Corinthians 6.17). We become ‘born’ of God, partakers of His divine nature. ~ “through the knowledge of Him…may be partakers of the divine nature” (2Peter 1.3-4).

Hearing the Anointed Word

So, how does the believer enter and abide in this blessed state of oneness (unity) with God? Jesus gives us the answer to that question. He reveals that it is by the anointed Word of God that one returns to Eden and partakes of the tree of life. Jesus is the way. Jesus said ~ “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me” (John 14.6). His name is the ‘Christ’ (Greek), which means ‘anointed’ by the Spirit of God. Jesus is the Anointed Word,1 which is the Way and the Truth that lead to the hidden Tree of eternal Life in the Garden. Notice, He said ~ “The Spirit of the LORD [is] upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel (Luke 4.18). Every day, the Jewish priests preached from the same text that Jesus did. They preached what the Bible calls the ‘dead letter’ of the word of God at the same time that Jesus was preaching the anointed, life-giving, word of God. Those who listened to the word preached without the anointing died spiritually, a little more each day, while those who listened to preaching of the anointed word by Jesus were healed and received eternal life.

Choose the Tree of Life

The Bible says the signature of God upon His ministers is the anointed word ~ “For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God does not give the Spirit by measure” (John 3.34). The Tree of Life in Eden is the Tree of the Spirit of Life, the Anointed Word, the True Vine.2 The Apostle Peter in the book of Acts demonstrates how through the anointed word the child of God becomes ‘One’ with the Spirit and partakes of the Tree of Life in this present age. Notice how the life-giving Spirit of God is ministered through the anointed word of God as it is preached. ~ “And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning” (Acts 11.15). Don’t let spiritual death through the sin of Adam rule your life for one more minute. Begin now to partake to the Tree of Life, Jesus Christ, by giving yourself daily to the anointed Word.

1John 3.24

Now he who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.

Life proceeds from the heart. The thoughts one chooses to permit to occupy the heart determine what that individual will become. The Bible says ~ “For as he thinks in his heart, so [is] he” (Proverbs 27.3). What you are today is the sum of what you chose to think about yesterday. The biggest lie of the devil is convincing people that they are a victim of circumstance when in reality they are victims of their own thoughts. Jesus said you will become what you think about. ~ “So Jesus said, “Are you also still without understanding? FOR OUT OF THE HEART PROCEED EVIL THOUGHTS, murders, adulteries…” (Matthew 15.16,19). The good news is that you do not have to continue meditating on the lies of the devil for the rest of your life. The Apostle Paul wrote, ~ “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes” (Romans 1.16).

You Decide

You can choose to think God’s thoughts, and they will produce faith in your heart, which is the power of God working victory in every area of your life. ~ “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things” (Matthew 12.35). He said the only difference between a good life and a bad life are the thoughts the person has chosen to permit to occupy the spiritual soil of his heart. You become what you think about. This is what Jesus meant when he said the good man ‘BRINGS FORTH good things.’ The truth is the devil does not decide. You decide what you are going to bring out of your heart tomorrow. Your heart is the production center of your life. It will produce whatever you decide to put into it. The devil likes to tell people that he has the power to make their lives good or bad, but the devil1 is a liar.

The Product of your Life

He knows that God has placed the control of your life into your own hands. This is what Jesus meant when he said, ~ “The kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17.20). The power of the kingdom of heaven and the power of the kingdom of darkness are in your heart. God has given this power to you; now it is your decision what you will plant and what you will harvest. Jesus said, ~ “And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground” (Mark 4.26). The reborn human spirit is very powerful. By sowing the word (seed) of God into it, the heart of man will produce faith which will bring those words to pass in your life ~ “nothing will be impossible for you” (Mateo 17.20). What you decide to put into your heart in ‘abundance’ is what your spirit will eventually produce, and this will be the product of your life… what you ‘BRING FORTH’ from your heart. Jesus said, ~ “For out of the abundance of the heart… a good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things” (Matthew 12.34-35).

Begin to Reign in Life

Your life is a product of the thoughts you put into your heart. It is for this reason the Bible teaches that man is to guard his heart above all things. ~ “Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it [spring] the issues of life” (Proverbs 4.23). The devil only has the power that you choose to give to him. The sum of his power in your life is determined by how many lies you permit him to sow into your heart. For this reason, the word says that you are to ‘guard2 your heart above all things.’ Jesus demonstrated how Satan gains access to people’s lives by sowing thoughts of sin, sickness and death into their hearts when they are not on guard. ~ “He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this’ (Matthew 13.28). You will never reign in life until you begin to reign over your own mind. Take control of your life and close the door to the enemy by doing what the Bible says. Begin today to bring every thought into the obedience of Jesus, the Word3 of God.

Protected: How to be Healed

To view it please enter your password below

Jesus taught a new kind of faith, a faith that is strong enough to move mountains yet is as simple as a seed is to understand and to operate. He called it ‘Seed Faith,’ and throughout the New Testament He demonstrated how this new kind of faith could raise the dead, feed the hungry and heal sick. To understand what the ‘seed’ is, one need look no further than to the Master himself. Jesus repeatedly taught that the mystery of the Kingdom of God is the ‘seed of the word’ of God. In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus says ~ “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God… Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God” (Luke 8.10,11). The mystery, or the thing that people didn’t understand, is that the word of God is spiritual seed and is capable of growing up in the heart and producing the faith necessary to receive all of the promises of God.

Guaranteed in Blood

People have tried to have faith on their own, without understanding how to use the word of God like a seed to produce the ‘seed faith’ Jesus taught. We must now take a look at the New Testament as a legal document. It is a Covenant or a contract that Jesus has established between God and His children, a sworn attestation defining every aspect of God’s relationship with His children. This legal document is a binding deposition that is guaranteed by the blood of Jesus Christ and the very thrown of God itself. The New Covenant is the last Will and Testament of the Lord of lords and King of kings. In this sworn affidavit, God has delineated how His possessions are to be managed after His decease. He has decreed that the supply for every need of His children has been preauthorized1 and itemized in one or more of the promises.

God’s Delivery System

The only condition is that the promise must be received2 by faith. The Apostle Peter ratifies this truth stating ~ ”As His divine power has given to us all things that [pertain] to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption [that is] in the world through lust.” (2Peter 1.3,4). God’s method of administering his property is as practical as it is sagacious. Through His written word, He governs exactly what is given and who is capable of receiving it. Everyone knows that faith comes by the word of God. In the book of Romans, we read ~ “So then faith [comes] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10.17).

The Source of Divine Origin

So, let’s summarize; we see that 1) faith comes by the word of God (Romans 10.17), 2) the seed is the word of God (Lukas 10.11), and 3) everything is given through the promises/words of God (2Pedro 1.4). Now, it becomes obvious that when Jesus said to have ‘faith as seed,’ He was talking about how the seed of the word of God would produce the faith that does not doubt when it is planted and cultivated in the heart of the believer. We see, then, how the same promise [word] contains the faith within to reproduce itself in the life of the believer, just like a natural seed has the life within itself to reproduce itself when it is planted and properly cared for. Similar to a seed, the word of God contains the faith within itself necessary to produce whatever that particular promise says. In the same way, the life within a natural seed has the energy to produce whatever the particular genetics in that seed indicate.

Luke 8.10,11

And He said, “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest [it is given] in parables, that ‘Seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.’ “Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.”
