In the last letter we spoke of the woman in the 12th chapter of Revelation. This vision is in Spirit so let us look to the Holy Spirit to open our understanding. All of these visions interact with other visions and cannot be understood except by the Holy Spirit.

Let us first refresh our minds on things that have been and the things which are.

Romans 8:14 "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God; they are the sons of God."

Romans 8:18-19 "For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God."

The apostle John says in his first letter 3:2 "Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is." The word sons here means as a child is produced. It does not matter whether we are male or female; in Jesus God will see us in body form as His Son.

In the book of Hebrews 2nd chapter we find that God has from the very beginning 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 see not yet all things put under him. What we do see is Jesus who suffered death for us that our sins may be forgiven when we come to except Him as our savior. He was resurrected by God. He was seen by many for some time. He then went up to be with our Father preparing a place for us within Himself. "For it became him, (for whom are all things, and by whom are all things,) in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

"For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified is all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren."

It has been 2000 years of reading these scriptures; seeing not all things put under Him but now the generation is here for that statement to change. God is about ready to harvest His fruit from the earth and there is only one person worthy to open the book and bring to pass the things written about the book and within the book. It is Jesus the Lamb of God and all power and Glory are given to Him. They sing a new song, saying, "Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation."

In the days of old when Israel began to come out of Babylon to build Jerusalem and the temple; they were met with a lot of resistance. In the last 2000 years a lot of resistance has been also. Hear what Paul says in 1 Corinthians 3:10-11 "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

According to the Words of Jesus; few there has been that have completed the walk on the narrow road and entered in to be a pillar in the heavenly Temple of God while they still lived on the earth. Great resistance has been upon us in this darkness we live in where no one could work. The enemy of our souls has done quite a work keeping the Temple from being built.

At any moment the power of God will begin to change that. A quick work will the Lord do to build the Heavenly Temple of God. The Door of the Temple will be opened; the sickle will come forth to harvest the Lords people, angels will be sent to do the work of separation. The call goes forth saying to His own, (come up here and I will show you what must be from now on. The 69th week of God�s timing will begin and He will confirm His covenant with many during all of the 69th week. The first seal will be opened as the Lord comes forth to conquer and bring to pass the beginning work to the building of His Temple and also putting His enemies under His feet. The restoring of correct thinking by the Lord to Jerusalem, the holy city of heaven; His bride, and His Sons will come about and many will come to understanding in how to prepare for the coming of the Lord.

In Revelation 6:1; the opening of the first seal; the Lord has a bow. This bow is not a bow and arrow type word. The word bow means (simplest fabric). You are the threads that will come together to make this covering. The fabric is the covering just as the building of the Temple is a covering. It is made from the simplicity of the Gospel of Christ. The word translated into bow also comes from a base word which means (bring forth from seed in mother, to be born.) Which really means delivered from within the Vail of flesh, harvested.

In Exodus one of the things God spoke to Moses was let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. "According to all that I show thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it;" Exodus 25:8-9. Moses was also instructed to make an Ark which I know you are aware of covered with gold with two cherubim on the top. It is interesting to know that the curtains of the tabernacle had wings of the cherubim on the walls and ceiling.

In Exodus 25:16 the Ark would be the( Ark of the testimony) because He said to Moses thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee. A little later on in Exodus the tabernacle would be called the tabernacle of the congregation and within this tabernacle of the congregation would be the Ark of the testimony. We know there were two areas; the first wherein was the candlestick, and the table and the showbread which is called the sanctuary. After the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all. It had the golden censer and the Ark of the Covenant overlaid round about with gold wherein was the golden pot that had manna and Aaron's rod that budded and the tables of the covenant. Hebrews chapter 9 spoke of this.

God made a way for us, the congregation, to come to Him by removing the veil when Jesus paid that terrible price for our sins.

We can now come to Him as a child to its Father all because of Jesus.

In Hebrews we are told... this that Moses made is only a shadow of the real Spiritual outer court and true tabernacle which the Lord pitched and not man, chapter 8:2. When Jesus came with the new covenant; it would be as Hebrews 8:10 speaks of. "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:"

A place built of people (the congregation) with Jesus as our head and High Priest. The Ark became the Ark of the testimony or Ark of the Covenant only when Moses placed the Ten Commandments on the inside.

When Jesus came to the earth; He came as the Spiritual Ark of the testimony with the ten laws written on His heart and in His mind. He said in Matthew 5:17-19 "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill."
"For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."
Jesus showed us how to fulfill these laws, not by letter, but by Spirit, with a heart of love for God and other people. When you read in the beginning of Matthew you find He talks of these laws. All of the other laws of Moses would be done away with except these ten that was placed inside the Ark.

There were two stones these laws were written on. Five of the laws spoke of our relationship to God and on the other stone the five laws spoke of our relationship toward mankind. This is the reason Jesus said you fulfill all the law by love, first to love the Lord God with all of your heart, mind and soul and the next one is to love your neighbor as yourself. True love is keeping the Lords commandments. All of what Jesus spoke is what the Father gave to Him to speak. I agree with the apostle John; anyone who does not keep His commandments; does not know God. Every time I read about what Jesus said; I think of Isaiah 8:20 which says "To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."

I believe these things needed to be spoken before we begin with the man child of the12th chapter of Revelation. The reason being the Ark and the two witnesses of the covenant speak also of the coming man child of which I hope to show to you.

The picture is like a repeat of the first generation with Jesus as the man child unknown by the children of Israel. He came forth preaching the Kingdom of God as the Spiritual Ark of the new covenant of God.

Where as the man child to come will fulfill these scriptures, Revelation 14:6-8 "And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication."

When the writer of Hebrews was explaining the difference between the temple made with the hands of men and the Spiritual Temple which the Lord pitched and not man. He came to the Ark and said in Hebrews 9:5 "...and over it the cherubim of glory shadowing the mercy seat; of which we cannot now speak particularly." The understanding of the Ark was not known back then but would be revealed to the last generation who would be actually living it. The Ark is important as we will see and is spoken of in Revelation 11:19 "And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

As we have spoken in the other letter about the woman in Revelation 12:1 'as the wise ones that come to understanding.' She is the wise side of the congregation of the 12 tribes of Spiritual Israel that is in pain and tribulation fulfilling the first 5 seals and Rev 12:2 which says "and she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered." She has a child; a man child within her that is also suffering to be brought forth. Both of them will come forth fulfilling their places in the Temple of God.

The man child has always been a mystery just as the Ark in the midst of the Church of the congregation is a mystery. Satan does not want this child to be born and he wants to devour the child as soon as He is born. He knows that this child with the help of heavenly forces will kick him out of heaven and he will never again be able to go back and accuse our brothers and sisters before our Father. Without getting into great detail; the natural Israel when they harvested the ripe grain, a first fruits was hand picked and given to the High Priest first as a wave offering. Seven weeks after the offering of the wave sheaf, after the Passover we come to Pentecost which marked the completion of the wheat harvest. This feast is also called the Feast of Weeks, the day of the First Fruits and the Feast of Harvests. The characteristic ritual of the feast was the offering and waving of two loaves of leavened bread made from the ripe grain which had just been harvested. This was done by the priest in the name of the congregation. In addition to these wave offerings the people were enjoined to give the Lord an offering of the first fruits of their produce. The amount of the offering was not designated. So we see two groups of first fruit; the first ones brought in are a hand picked group which is waved by the High Priest to God and the other a multitude with out number brought into the temple.

The harvest that is about to begin to bring this age to a close and complete the building of the temple; we see these two groups in Revelation. One is hand picked and is numbered while the other is a multitude without number. Both of these groups are in the Temple of God, (5th seal). The group that is numbered is Revelation 7:3-4 "Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed (a hundred and forty and four thousand) of all the tribes of the children of Israel."

The group without number that is in the Temple before His Throne is in the same chapter, Revelation 7:9 "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;"

I would like for you to hear more about this women of Revelation 12 because these scriptures are also talking about her.

Revelation 7:13-16 "And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, what are these which are arrayed in white robes? And whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, these are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat." There is a reason why palms are in her hands.

When the Lord was showing me something about the first fruits; He showed me a scripture in James 1:18 "Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures."

In the first generation we also find a numbered group of 12 personally picked by God in the midst of a multitude called the nation of Israel. A harvest of the nation had begun with the preaching of John the Baptist. These 12 men were called apostles and would be the leaders when it came to the harvesting of the nation. The other nations could not be harvested because no seed had been planted yet, which is Jesus Christ, the seed of Abraham. Peter would be the first one to plant the seed of Jesus and see also the receiving of the Holy Spirit in a gentile home by the name of Cornelius. Later Saul renamed Paul was made into the Lords apostle to plant the seed of Christ unto the nations. All of these men were a kind of first fruits but not the real first fruits that was yet to come. I believe the 12 apostles were the wave sheaf the High Priest ; (which is Jesus) waved to God His Father.

If it took a lot of the Lord's people with 12 leaders called apostles to harvest one nation. Think of how many it will take to harvest all the nations of the earth? The man child in the midst of the unnumbered multitude is the numbered one called 144,000 chosen men. 12,000 from each of the 12 Spiritual tribes of the Spiritual nation Jesus has been building for 2000 years. The man child goes a little further than the congregation of the Temple because they make up a body and fulfill the witness that the inside of the Ark speaks of.

Lets look a little further at this body of men. Revelation 14:2-5 "And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being (the firstfruits) unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God."

To be not defiled with women means God has kept these men from being defiled... from the churches which are spiritually called women; producers of children; and kept them virgins before God. The building of the Temple is not just bringing in the congregation but also the fullness of the Ark of the testimony. The Ark is Christ the firstfruits because inside the Ark are two witnesses of the covenant of God. Inside the Ark was also Aaron's rod that budded and brought forth fruit. The rod is Jesus when He was cut off, (crucified) and the fruit that came forth from the rod is 144,000 called the firstfruits unto God and the Lamb. Inside the Ark was also a golden pot with manna inside. I do not believe Moses picked up just a couple of manna to be placed inside the Ark. I believe Moses gathered a full pot of manna and if we were given the opportunity to count them we would count 144,000.

The witness of the Ark proves the witness of the covenant of God comes by two witnesses yet many. The 144,000 first fruits are made into two loaves ;( two witnesses) of leaven bread baked in the fire and is the wave offering. When Jesus comes with the opening of the 6th seal I believe He not only measures those in the Temple when the 7th seal is opened Revelation 11:1-2, but verses 3 to 6 says "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will."

The man child is these two olive trees and two candlesticks; they are the same two witnesses the Ark of the testimony speaks of and are the firstfruits that come forth from a cut-off rod; (Jesus). A 144,000 of them which is in the golden bowl of manna; the Word of God coming with the blowing of the trumpets. I believe the olive trees have many branches on them. This is why you can say there are two of them and at the same time a 144,000 of them. I know I am repeating some things but I'm doing it for a purpose.

Not only do these have special power as part of the Ark of the testimony to spear head the war but also Jesus fulfills his promise to the wise in the Temple, (the congregation) in Matthew 24:45-47. They are given power to rule His household and over all His goods as they abide under our Fathers wings. With the 7th seal open; it means the book is open and the war begins. These scriptures come to pass Revelation 12:5-12...

"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."

When the book is opened and the fulfillment of the parable of the ten virgins has come to pass. The door of the Temple is closed with a congregation and the man child inside; they are one with Jesus and God our Father. We see palms in the hands of the congregation in the scripture of Revelation 7:9. This is for the same reason that the people laid palms in the way for Jesus to walk on 2000 years before believing that Jesus would take His place as King. The difference between then and now is; now Jesus is going to finish it, Revelation 14:1 "And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him a hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads." The war begins at Jerusalem.

In every war there are those on the front line with others as a support group.

Jesus said to those that were with Him 2000 years ago, "some of you will not taste death until you see the Son of man coming in His Kingdom with power and great Glory." A few days later some of them see Jesus on a mountain top transfigured with two witnesses with Him, Moses and Elias. Matthew 17 speaks of this as well as Luke 9th chapter. Notice when Jesus said the Son of man is coming in His Kingdom;" ( it means He is coming in His people which are the Kingdom.)

Luke 9:29-32 "And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elijah: Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem. But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him."

Revelation 11:7-8 "And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified."

Yes 144,000, (the man child) will be killed in the same place Jesus was killed. I saw this in a vision; a large and great people going to Jerusalem to be slain and I remember when I saw this it was a shock to me.

Revelation 11:8-12 "And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and a half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them."

Think of what it will look like to see all of these men stand up on their feet and rise up into heaven! These are the man child, the two witnesses of the Ark of His Covenant, the firstfruits that branches forth from the Rod of God ;( Jesus). The golden bowl of manna, the two olive trees that stand beside the God of the whole earth. This happens just before the 7th and last trumpet blows. Revelation 11:15 "And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever."

Revelation 11:19 is the scripture that shows you the firstfruits is the Ark of the Covenant for when God called them to heaven He opens the temple so the Ark may be seen. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail."

1 Corinthians 15:22-23 "For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order ;" (Christ the firstfruits;) afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.

In Jesus Name

"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" Rev 18:4.

Over the past 50 or so years, multitudes of believers have answered the call to come out of the religious systems and follow Christ. For many it has cost them very dearly on a personal level. There is a price for bucking the system. No one is going to give you a pat on the back for going against the flow. If you are among this number, then you know exactly what the repercussions are. Shunning is still alive and well in this modern age we live in, and is used against the wayward seeker by family, friends, and those whom they formerly worshipped with. I remember well what I encountered when I left my Church home. Rumors were flying... outlandishly ridiculous accusations were made... all in an attempt to humiliate and intimidate me into complying with their way of thinking. One of the things that I was struck by, was the fact that not one person from the Church "family" I had been faithful to for so many years ever even called to ask if any of what they were hearing was true, or if I was alive or dead. It was a traumatic experience; one that I could not have weathered if not for the comforting presence of the Lord. One day when I was reading the Word, with all of these things churning around inside me, the Spirit of the LORD quickened this passage to me:

Psalms 55:4-14 My heart is grievously pained within me, and the terrors of death have fallen upon me. Fear and trembling have come upon me; horror and fright have overwhelmed me. And I say, Oh, that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest. Yes, I would wander far away, I would lodge in the wilderness. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]! I would hasten to escape and to find a shelter from the stormy wind and tempest. Destroy [their schemes], O Lord, confuse their tongues, for I have seen violence and strife in the city. Day and night they go about on its walls; iniquity and mischief are in its midst. Violence and ruin are within it; fraud and guile do not depart from its streets and marketplaces. For it is not an enemy who reproaches and taunts me--then I might bear it; nor is it one who has hated me who insolently vaunts himself against me--then I might hide from him. But it was you, a man my equal, my companion and my familiar friend. We had sweet fellowship together and used to walk to the house of God in company. [Ampl.]

This Psalm of David expressed exactly what I was going through... what every believer encounters sometime along the way if they continue to follow Christ. We are not going to encounter anything that others before us have not faced. The Word tells us that there is nothing new under the sun. Yet when it is happening in 'our life,' it takes on entirely new dimensions. All these things that we suddenly find ourselves being confronted with are only happening because we stepped out of the 'accepted' religious comfort zone and answered the Master's call.

According to most of today's Shepherds, 'Sheep' aren't supposed to listen to anyone but them. Conflict inevitably arises when sheep begin to develop a living relationship with the One True Shepherd of their souls... and those earthly leaders cannot keep themselves from exposing that they are in fact 'hirelings,' who care nothing for the welfare of the sheep. Jesus addressed this in John 10:12-13 But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling, and careth not for the sheep. To the hireling, the sheep are his bread and butter, they feed his ego as well as his bank account. Insubordination will not be tolerated. Any rebellious sheep will be dealt with speedily, so that the rest of the flock doesn't get any ideas that there might be another way of doing things, outside the control of all of the religious camps.

So, now that your out... what's next?

Well, if your expecting that the Lord is going to raise you up and send you back in to 'set the captives free'... first there are a few things that the Spirit of God must deal with in this (His) little sheep. He does take us out to bring us closer to Himself. But the process is often times not even remotely as we imagined it would be. First of all, we must get our bearings, which includes suffering many things. Sometimes there are breakups in families over this kind of rebellion, with great pain and heartache for all concerned. Some 'outsiders' lose everything that they loved in this world... Home, Family, Reputation, Livelihood... all can be included in the price to follow Christ. This may sound very strange to you, if you have grown up in the 'Prosperity - Bless Me Camp.' In fact, this entire piece will be unintelligible to all who are comfortably satisfied with the forage provided by the Mega-Churches across the board. Don't worry, this isn't addressed to you folks. This is addressed to those souls who have been called to step out into the 'Wilderness'... to leave all that is familiar behind and step out in faith much like Abraham did.

As you journey along, 'loneliness' may well seem like your stalwart companion. The WORD may be your only source of comfort and guidance, pointing the way where there seems to be none. Your beliefs and attitudes will be tested, tried, and brought into conformity with the 'will of God'.. whether you like it particularly, or not. You had a choice when you were still part of the dutiful flock. You could have refused the call of the Shepherd, and remained where all appeared to be comfortable and secure. But there comes a point in this walk that you no longer have a choice. Your love for the Shepherd is so all consuming that it supersedes and overrides all else. Your own will, wants and desires are gradually shaped, molded, transformed even, until you don't even recognize yourself anymore.

There will be battles, in all shapes and sizes, on a regular basis. But if you continue along the path set before you, (we each have our own path you know), you will discover that the greatest battles are within... in our own heart, mind and soul. There are things inside of us that we don't even know about. But God sees them, and He knows exactly how to bring them to the surface, and get them out in the open, so we are forced to deal with them. Anger, jealousy, bitterness, strife, unforgiveness, covetousness, pride, vanity, selfishness, the list can go on and on. Yes, even at this stage of our walk, these seeds can be buried deep down inside of us. But never fear, nothing that is there is a surprise to God. He loves us in spite of them, but He is not content to allow them to remain. As we travel along this strange new pathway, we learn pretty quickly that there is no such thing as coincidence or chance. God is in absolute control of everything that happens. And yes, He allows some pretty painful, unpleasant things to happen in our lives.

"Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered" Hebrews 5:8. Jesus is our only example. Suffering is part of 'taking up our cross and following Christ.' What for centuries has been common knowledge among believers, has been nearly obliterated from the Christian mindset in this generation. The struggles those being called-out today face have a great deal to do with letting go of everything we have been taught... all we thought we knew. Its one thing to come out of the Church, now the struggle is to get all the bad attitudes, false teachings, and self-righteousness out of us, and only the Holy Spirit of God can accomplish this task in us. We soon learn that we can do nothing of ourselves or in our own strength. No indeed, we are dependent upon the LORD for each step we take. There are many pitfalls and snares awaiting those who step out in faith and obedience. Just conquering the initial obstacle of breaking out seemed monumental! Not caving in to the peer pressure, the loving admonitions that "God wouldn't do that." "If you leave this Church you are going to hell." "Touch not God's anointed," (that would be in reference to disagreeing with those leader shepherds who would stand in your way and block your progress). You may have already been there and done that, and though you may have acquired a few battle scars, your inner man has grown. You are being fed from the Word and recognizing the Spirit's witness in a wonderfully new way. But this was just the first leg of the journey dear friend. There is more to be overcome.

You May Call Me Father If.......

(Romans 8:11-18) But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised up Christ Jesus from the dead shall give life also to your mortal bodies through his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

(12) So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh: (13) for if ye live after the flesh, ye must die; but if by the Spirit ye put to death the deeds of the body, ye shall live. (14) For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God.(15) For ye received not the spirit of bondage again unto fear; but ye received the spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. (16) The Spirit himself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are children of God:(17) and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified with him. (18) For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us-ward

MORE by Guy Morris


There are so many in this wilderness that are asking the Lord for direction and understanding. May the Lord speak to you and help you during this dry time as you wait with us for the things Jesus is about to do. We have come out of the leadership of the organizations like leaving a city of bright lights and dancing. Their leaders are blinded by there own lights; they have not entered
into the Kingdom of God and will seek to keep you out if you stay with them.

Our Father really wants to give you His Kingdom which the life of this world and its churches cannot give you. In the days of old when the children of Israel were in bondage to Egypt; leaders cracked the whip over them to sacrifice; giving more, more so they could build their monuments. Today is no different; except instead of Egypt its spiritual Israel in bondage to spiritual Babylon the city of confusion. They are women having many children with no knowledge of God's Kingdom. The only knowledge is building their own worldly kingdoms. The Lord said to me that there will not be anything left that will not be thrown down.

Many have left the organizations and are walking through dry places looking for more. Their heart tells them that there is something more God has for them. You are right; there is something more for you. I want to commend you on your decision. Please keep reading the scriptures and look to the Holy Spirit to teach and guide you. There are so many still in the organizations but take heart the Lord has not forgotten them. In fact when the Lord is done bringing them out the only thing left in it will be devils and a hold for every foul spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird; Rev 18:2.

The wilderness may seem lonely with not much going on but the Lord has called you out for a reason. He wants you to find the truth of His covenant He has made for us. When you find it; it will be like a treasure of great price. It is very important to read the scriptures with a focus on the Words of Jesus. I want to prove this to you by the words of the apostle Peter. He was the one Jesus spoke to saying that he would receive the keys to the Kingdom.

In the letter of 2nd Peter he is talking to us who have received life from God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We who are already a living child of God's household. I'm going to start at the end and work backwards with this.

Notice what he says to us in 2Peter 1:10-12 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so(AN ENTRANCE SHALL BE) ministered unto you) abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In other words you become a child of His Kingdom before you grow up to be in His Kingdom (One with Christ Jesus).

Now let's look at what he says to do before this entrance is given to you. 2Peter 1:3-8 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; and to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

When you add to your faith virtue; Peter wants you to work on making your faith strong, or manly, in the Words God is speaking through Jesus. His Words and His commandments are the words of the Kingdom. If we expect to grow up to be one with God and His temple; we must be in agreement with all things the King of the Household has spoken.

Jesus also spoke of a growing process that happens before an entrance through the door of the barn or (KINGDOM) is given. Mar 4:26-29 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.

Perhaps now you will understand the Words of Jesus when He said John 3:5-6 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Jesus Words are Spirit; the water is Living Water which gives life to the seed planted in you. In the flesh the pattern is the same; the seed is planted in the women and is born into life. Even though the child is in a developing time inside the women it is already a child of the household. Only the Father knows by His Spirit when His child is ready to be harvested; born and the cord cut. This time is a painful time but when the child comes forth; there is much joy and Father is full of joy that another child is born in His Household. The child for the first time can open its eyes and see its Father.

Jesus said few would find it because He knew darkness was coming when no one could work at it. Most died old as Spiritual babes still in the field in their developing stage and I know the Lord finished developing them on the other side with Jesus.

Most people who have not experienced what happens at harvest will think and teach that it is when people have first received Jesus Christ as savior; this is understandable but incorrect. We need to repent and change our thinking because a lot of wrong teaching has come from the churches of the world. A farmer who plants his seed into the earth will not call it harvesting. The apostle Paul planted; 1Co 3:6-7 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

The churches with the enemies help have kept the children babies and feeding them polluted milk; for this reason the children are sick and not able to grow.

I will also show you another way to see it; in fact it's the way the Lord showed me. In 2 Kings 2:19-21 And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren. And he said, bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.

The cruse is a new container which is a picture of Jesus and the salt is every Word spoken by Him. The Word of the Kingdom of God.

The churches have lost the flavor of salt therefore it is good for nothing and ready to be cast out.

When Jesus spoke of the Kingdom as a treasure in Mat 13:44 The kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

When Jesus said he hides; it is true. The Word means to conceal, kept secret or covering. This does not mean you stop talking about Jesus and give out testimony of the Savior, (NO). We all look for opportunity to plant the Seed of Jesus into the hearts of others. Sometimes we may water the Seed someone else has planted, but it is always God who gives the increase. Perhaps you may understand why you hide it if I tell you what happened to me. I don't like to talk about myself; may the Lord forgive me this.

I was spiritually born in 1965, received the Holy Spirit and witnessed for Jesus for ten years; also preached on occasion. In 1975 while at home I saw a door. It was like looking up into heaven and seeing a door opened to me. I had no idea what this was but I had a strong desire and calling to go through this door. If I went to anyone of my church they would only tell me that I was already in the door which is Jesus. I prayed along with my family that I might understand this door and enter it. I knew by witness of the Holy Spirit that this was the same door that Revelation speaks of in the 4th chapter and also to the church of Philadelphia but I did not understand one thing about this.

To make a long story short; it was not long that a lot of things happened and I was in this wilderness separated from all things religious. I was in the wilderness for years not understanding the dry loneliness of what was happening to me. I missed the fellowship I once had and the singing. I was out of money, out of gas for my truck and sitting alone in a house I was about to lose. I started to pray; telling the Lord how sorry I was for being such a failure and I just didn't know what to do next. Then it happened.

I saw a vision of a Man standing behind the candlesticks that is inside the Temple. I could not see too much about Him except I knew it was Jesus and He was looking toward the east which was on my right side. The fire on the candles was bright and I didn't move; all I could do was look. My Bible was on the stand beside me. It was a red letter type which you know means all the Words of Jesus are in red letters. He then slowly began to turn His Head towards me and when He looked straight at me the light from the candlesticks entered my heart. I saw the red lettered Words of my bible come off the pages toward me. I saw the Kingdom for the first time in my life.

I had read the words so many times but never heard them like this before. I was shocked and realized that of all the years and all the churches I have been in I never heard the Word of the kingdom preached to me.

I did just what Jesus said I would do, I hid it and began to sell all of my fleshly life to buy it. Every church or organization has rules and commandments that rule themselves. If you do not keep their rules that they have set up; will they not press you out? Every one of you has rules of conduct that govern your households. They are there to protect your children and have proper order. They may not be written down but they are there.

The reason I hid it is because the swine are all around us and if they knew that I now was keeping the commandments of God's household by turning the cheek if struck, giving to all who ask me without wanting any thing in return, forgiving everyone the wrongs they did or will do and etc. Some would take advantage of me by not only stepping on the Word but also me. I needed time to work this out.

I now am old and have nothing left but what I do have I can give whenever the Holy Spirit wants me to say what He wants said.

The Kingdom of God is within you but so are the giants which are the lusts or wants of the flesh. There is no temptation that is too great for you to overcome for the Lord will make a way for you to escape it. Every time you obey one of His commandments the flesh will hate it and not want to do it because it dies a little bit every time you obey them. There are some people who will say it is impossible to do what Jesus said to do. To these I will say they are full of unbelief and are like the ten spies Moses sent into the promise land which came back with evil report saying the giants are too big for us.

There is a rest for the people of God. The more you overcome the greater the rest. Have faith in the Word of God; the faith that was once spoken to the saints in the beginning. There is a labor to enter rest and the labor is the working out His commandments in you. Read the letters sent to the 7 churches in Revelation and you will see that this is the works the Lord was looking for and only found it in one of them.

Mat 6:33 Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

We can understand now why James said I'll show you my faith by my works. Not every one will be 100%; some will be 60% and some 30%. To go on to perfection is working at becoming one with Jesus Christ and the Lord will finish the job when He comes.

True light cannot be hid, you can only hide it when other people don't know why you are full of good works. It's love with God, with every thing in you and your neighbor as your self.

May the Lord give you understanding.

In Jesus Name


Search Me, O God

Search Me, O God

Lord, You have formed me and know every part,
You wove me inside of the womb.
Lord, I will praise You with all of my heart,
How marvelous the works You do.


Search me, O God, and know all of my heart;
Try me and know every anxious thought;
See if there is any wicked part,
Lead me in Your righteousness.

Your eyes were on me when I was unformed,
My frame was not hidden from You.
My days were ordained, and were all written down,
How marvelous the works You do.


You are holy,
You are holy,
You are holy, Lord
