25.2 All Provision
25.2 All Provision
© 2017 Christ Revealed Bible Institute
I am assuming fully that you, as a reader, KNOW every line in Revelation Chapters 10-15. I am drawing from every line all through this section of Kingdom, though I will not include all of that in this short space. Read those chapters to refresh that Word, allowing what God Himself says to enter your heart without imposing definitions. These chapters are only for the manifest sons of God; they do not belong to anyone else.
And I saw… those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark… (Revelation 15:2). – Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman… (Revelation 12:13).
To Whom Will I Write?
Father brought me to a resolution of the struggle He and I were sharing over the last couple of weeks. You see, I made the commitment to “write the vision and make it plain.” The first rule of writing is to know your topic, but the second rule of writing is to know your audience. To whom, exactly, will I be writing? When I saw the answer to that question, I saw peace as well.
We began Symmorphy I: Purpose by laying out Word – Spirit – Jesus as all the same One, that is, Christ. Many who teach “union with Christ” as a philosophy reject the Holy Spirit and some even reject Jesus; they only want “Christ.” Few of those are interested in what I teach.
Treating God Like Dirt
On the other hand, many who embrace the things of the Spirit, see the Word as the enemy, mostly because they imagine that Calvin was “correct” in his use of the Bible. Thus, in throwing out Calvin, they also throw out much of the Bible. Many of those don’t want Jesus either, just Christ. And some don’t want blood. Then I look at those who teach that hades is only for a season, and I find some who remain Calvinists in all else and some who drift into Spirit-only, no Jesus and no Word.
Those who reject the fullness of the Spirit are treating God like dirt. Those who reject the Bible as the Word God is speaking are treating God like dirt. They are not this woman of whom we are speaking.
The Face of God’s Woman
But here is the big one. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is anti-Christ who denies the Father and the Son. – Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God (1 John 2:22 & 5:1).
I have nothing for those who want Spirit without Word or Word without Spirit, but I especially have nothing for those who want a Christ without Jesus. I do not know those people.
Then I consider Lakewood Church, and looking across the faces of 10,000 people. I see a people who have embraced the fullness of the Spirit as part of their lives. I see a people who honor the Bible as God’s word to us, yet a Bible alive by the Spirit. I see a people who love Jesus and speak of Father. And I see a pastor pointing them in the right direction – to CONFIDENCE in God.
Across the whole earth, there are millions of these people, a people who have entered into the Holy Place and found the Bible to be living bread and the light of the Spirit to be a knowing of all truth, a people who draw near to the holiest and who see the entrance into Christ through the altar of incense. These people are God’s woman in this hour, and all those who are part of her but have not yet arrived. These are my brethren; these are the ones I know. Yet they lack one thing. And they carry one piece of baggage that will destroy them if they do not let it go.
Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it (Revelation 11:1-2).
A Weight of Stumbling
The one thing they lack is the knowledge of union with Christ, a Jesus and a Salvation here and now, not being dead in heaven, but rather Salvation revealed upon this earth.
There are also many in the Holy Place who have drawn near to the Holiest, but who have a second piece of baggage, the mental arguments of Calvinism turning them to good-and-evil. Some dear ones will escape that iron helmet preventing them from the helmet of salvation, but many will not.
But the piece of baggage carried by most Spirit-filled Christians today who hope in Jesus and honor God’s word, is a complete misunderstanding of this world and their role in it. And even worse, their complete miss-interpretation of the natural Jew and the nation of Israel.
The World Hates Me
All who speak against Israel are being cut off by the big companies. Amazon is banning many books, now, that it once carried. Google is censoring true news more and more. The enemy and target of this world is not those who “speak against Israel,” however, but the name of Jesus. The world …hates Me because I testify against it that its works are evil (John 7:7).
And so, I know now to whom I will write booklets. I will place the Lakewood Church congregation in my mind, knowing that as such, I will be writing to all similar Spirit-filled believers. The problem is, however, that they will eventually see that I hold to Paul’s gospel regarding the natural Jew, and they will not continue reading.
Only One Goal
For that reason, one of my first booklets must be Paul’s gospel and the two covenants, made as gentle and as clear as I can. Yet the declaration is held that those who are the sons of God in this hour will give full support to the nation of Israel and those who speak against Israel cannot be of God. Earth is for the Jews – Christian are relegated off to death in heaven.
How, then, will God’s people enter into the Feast of Tabernacles if there are no “leaders” taking them there?
I want to get right at what is really going on in the centers of power on this planet, what is really the focus and intention of the last 110 years of history. There has only been one goal – to eliminate the name of Jesus from human thinking.
The Kingdom Arising
Yet I have to walk a tightrope in this session. This is not a study of the “end of the age,” but rather of the Kingdom. At certain points, these two topics coincide, but using John’s vision to understand things we see in this world is a different subject. It’s not what is happening in the world that is critical to us, but rather the Kingdom of God arising inside that context.
The flood from the dragon’s mouth flowing forth right now and ever increasing includes many things. Yet the largest and most effective underlying strategy of the evil one and those humans who share his designs is the strategy of Balaam.
The king of Moab had hired Balaam to curse the people of Israel encamped on the borders of his land. When Balaam attempted to do so, all he could speak was blessing. Balaam was crafty, however, and was determined to earn his pay, thus he advised the king that since man could not curse Israel, whom God had blessed, the trick was to get God to do the cursing Himself by drawing Israel into wickedness.
The television is the greatest mind control change agent in all the human experience. Those who control what comes through the television have had one purpose from the beginning – to draw Christians into wickedness, that they might become cursed by God. The level of wickedness now coming through TV shows and movies is beyond all belief.
You see, the purpose of WWI was to eliminate Christianity in Russia and to shatter it in the rest of Europe. And the purpose of WWII was to eliminate Christianity in Germany as well as the rest of Europe. Both wars served those purposes well. This is one reason why such anger is now being expressed against Putin’s Russia. The man has dared to restore Christianity in Russia, the first victory, and they hate him for it.
Destroying Christianity in America is a much bigger problem. Break Christianity in America and the rise of Christianity in Africa and Latin America can be dealt with. The total disconnect between the reality of America’s endless wars of murder and carnage across the earth and the “beliefs” about the “goodness of America” by Christians is also beyond understanding.
The Law of Sowing and Reaping
We can see a determined drive to link the American Christian church together with the greatest of war crimes. In fact, I can see the possibility that the attack dogs tearing at Donald Trump are really attempting to draw out the bulk of American Christians who support him into a foolish attempt to “fight” by carnal means and thus be openly ridiculed and condemned. Yet Trump has abandoned all thoughts of peace and seems to be driving for war as hard as Clinton threatened.
By God’s law of sowing and reaping (Galatians 6:7), America should already be destroyed as she has done so often to others. If American Christians murder the Iranian people who are innocent of the charges leveled against them, then I don’t know what would prevent justice.
The central key of the strategy of Balaam is not war crimes, however, but money. 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).
I have no interest in predicting the future, but only in understanding the present. The future does not and never will exist; we live always and only in the present Today. Forever, it will be Today. The future can be fantasized, but today is common and familiar.
The RFID Chip
The drive towards a cashless society is on the increase across the whole earth and in every nation. Already, the radio frequency identification (RFID) chip inserted under the skin to mark and identify a human person by their body is becoming common in many countries. Companies in Spain require their employees to receive an RFID chip under their skin. Australia is at the forefront of proving out these technologies. India is at war with cash, even to crippling their growing economy.
You now have an RFID chip in your debit card and passport, possibly your drivers license as well, if not, coming soon. Common and familiar is the goal.
Free from this World
It seems to me that over the last several months a demonic spirit of irrationality has gripped the political and news media scene across the world openly as I have never seen before. Everyone is lying; nothing is what it seems.
But God’s woman, in all naivety and foolishness, continues to believe that the world is telling her the truth. To face the fact that the world is all lies, that everything about this structured story of life in this world is hideously fabricated deceit, to admit that one has built one’s life entirely on not just things that are not true, but on lies meant to destroy Christ in this world – this realization is simply too shocking for most. God must set His Church free from this world.
What Will You Do?
It would be better if the explosion of nuclear bombs or a blast of electricity from the sun took out the electrical grid across the earth and shut down all modern systems of supply than the fulfillment of what seems to be the real plan. The real intention seems to be to threaten such a complete breakdown and then provide the alternative.
Right now you buy everything you need from the store, and you earn your income only because other people are buying your work. All of this is common, familiar, and easy. What will you do when the only way you can carry your groceries out of the neighborhood store is to possess an RFID chip under your skin – a reality that is moving in very fast?
Marking the Body
It’s easy to implant RFID chips into everyone; it’s likely already happening in many arenas. All you do is fill a vaccination shot with thousands of nano-sized chips, all of which can track and identify the human body. Soldiers are the front runners for such practices. Anyone joining the military today is giving his or her body to the Beast to use it as it will. Soldiers will be the first ones to be required to take the RFID chip under their skin. Their oath will not allow them to refuse.
Balaam’s strategy is simple. Take the chip and be cursed by God or refuse the chip and starve to death in a homeless ditch, but not your children. Anyone who refuses to buy food from a store is obviously a child abuser and will lose their children.
Fulfilling the Booths of Tabernacles
Now, my purpose in laying out these scenarios as being very real and upon us is to position the fulfillment of the dwelling in booths as relating to the natural needs of God’s people. And they shall nourish her there. – And don’t think, “Oh, I don’t think anything bad will happen.” If that’s true, then history has never happened. If that’s true, then Cambodians did not awaken to their children being burned in their beds by American war criminals and their country turned to abject horror as a result.
But back to our purpose. And they shall nourish her there. Something incredible is about to happen in our lives on this earth, and I am getting excited.
Divine Provision a Third Time
In wisdom, we ought to have extra food and water on hand and specific survival things, just as a matter of course. BUT without garden land and seeds, water and hoes, it’s only a matter of time before there is no more food. And those things can easily be taken away.
God provided for His people twice; I am convinced that the opening salvos of His Kingdom arising on this earth will be such an open display of God’s provision coming to His church as she flees in horror from all the hatred of this world targeted directly at her. And that provision will be coming out of our bellies, out of our continual practice of turning all the little problems of our lives into goodness by our confidence in Father with us.
The Expectation of God
And, of course, God does not limit Himself to us, but He has many across His church whom He is preparing in surprisingly different ways for just such an hour. But here is where our knowledge of God’s overflowing abundance, not head knowledge, but true knowing, comes into the picture. Practice the expectation of God. That’s what Joel Osteen taught me to do, to practice constantly thinking that God is arising in me, to expect God in all confidence in every direction.
So it was, whenever the ark set out, that Moses said: “Rise up, O Lord! Let Your enemies be scattered, and let those who hate You flee before You” (Numbers 10:35). We may be little people, but our God is pretty BIG – and that’s the whole point of symmorphy and covenant.
Her Success IS Our Victory
We are that Ark of the Covenant, vessels of weakness, clothed with God inside and out, bearing in our hearts the very Covenant of Christ Himself. Writing the next series, Symmorphy IV: Covenant is growing in me as a deep and exhilarating excitement. I can hardly wait.
Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there (Revelation 12:6). I have no idea what this will look like outwardly. What I do know is that the Church of Jesus Christ, our brethren, His Beloved, is caught in a trap she does not understand. And her success in all things IS our victory.
The Riches of Christ
Those who have written off the church have written off the Lord Jesus Christ – not a good idea – not a successful approach.
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). It is here that our great weapon of all the riches of Christ becomes the proving of Jesus faithful and true. The outer circumstances are not important; it is this supply, walking in union with this Christ that counts.
But my God fills you full towards your needs first, but more importantly towards your task (and they shall nourish her there), and He fills you full down to the finest details of His abundance and wealth as they are found inside all the sphere of glory inside all the sphere of Christ.
