Nurturing the Woman
In my declaration at the end of the last lesson, that I will write the vision and make it plain, Father and I together, as Oour weapon of power in this first critical step of shattering that false image, by speaking those words in that way, I am speaking power in the heavens. Those aren’t “just” words. Words are Spirit, and they are Life. Word and Spirit are always together, and they always bring forth Life.
The ministry of Elijah is to set forth the truth in power. And you who are reading this are very much part of this same task. I received a reply from a reader to my last letter on commitment in which she spoke that same commitment back to me. Oh, the strength her words have established in me.
There is one thing I can do; I can write. And if writing is all Father and I are able to do together, then, with your strength given back to us, by gum, Wwe will write. And Wwe will write in the full confidence of Spirit Power; Wwe will write laughing uproariously.
May I suggest that you read Revelation 12 over and over, for I am thinking constantly of it as I write these sessions. Memorize the chapter, place it in your heart and in your gut. For you are its fulfillment now upon this earth in the fullness of times. Let its words become essential to the fabric of your consciousness.
And they shall nourish her there. – And they shall nourish her there.
And so what happens when Spirit-filled people who love Jesus embrace with all their hearts that He is appearing in them as the revelation of Father? What happens when millions of precious saints run into Tabernacles Day One? What happens when there is a spontaneous arising of a fully successful Christian church upon this earth, something NO ONE is looking for, something the whole Bible says nothing else BUT!
May I suggest that the reaction of men and angels will not be pleasant. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood (Revelation 12:15).
A Spirit of Darkness
This serpent “water” operates at two levels. The second is through the world-beast, and that level we will consider in the next session. But the first level is in the heavens, a spirit of darkness sent forth in a last-ditch effort to stave off for a few more moments that GREAT chain looming large.
I have no resource better to give you a clear picture of this reality than the Annie Schissler visons. And so I will share two visions, two among many, from I Looked & I Saw Visions of God, edited by R. Edward Miller, 1972. I did not think of these recently, now until now. You will see I am not speaking on my own.
From “The Coming Persecution”
Today He showed me strange, strong pains and sufferings that shall accompany that Holy Thing that He is bringing forth, as it were, out of His own being. The tremendous storm of pain and suffering accompanying this coming manifestation shall break forth simultaneously with it, and shall be provoked by that holy, new beginning – the manifestation that He is going to bring forth and place in His chosen ones. …
The thought occurred to me that it was almost a deceitful thing which He was about to give His own ones, for although it was so high and holy, nevertheless, it would bring forth strong provocations, terrible reactions, and much suffering, pain, and persecution. The chosen ones who receive this Holy Thing from Him shall also receive the pain and suffering provoked by it, for that Holy Thing shall be tremendously shocking to those who are in opposition to God.
From “Coming Fiery Trials”
He caught me away into His cloud, then talked to me concerning the intense trials that are coming, which it is necessary for His children to pass through in order to become the overcomers that He has promised they will be. He said that He will permit many things to rise up in great fury against all His own ones – things which will appear to consume them completely. Yet at the very moment when this happens, God will give them a strong force and power, just as he has promised, which will be a manifestation of His power in its fullness. Thus will they overcome and not be defeated. I understood that this uprising would be in the political, physical, and spiritual realms as well.
In spite of the great fury of the coming trials, God did not allow them to operate freely. These powerful waves of forbidding forces of the powers of darkness were completely controlled. Evolving, developing, and extending out to all places, they were then drawn together and enclosed.
These forces of evil and destruction from the powers of darkness desired to encircle, enclose, and drag all His own ones into themselves, but these were too firmly rooted in Him to be plucked up and dragged into the encompassing action of these hateful, destroying forces of evil. They completed their cycle of allowed action without accomplishing their intentions or purposes, and God’s own ones emerged from all these fiery trials as triumphant conquerors. …
In the midst of all these fiery trials, Christ arose with two things in His hands: a crown and a sword (not of fire or of wrath, but of power), and proceeded to reign over all in powerful dominion.
A Full Confirmation
The bold print in the two visions is my own emphasis.
Now, as you read and understand these visions, and all of Annie’s visions, know that neither Annie nor Ed Miller possessed the same understanding of God as He is that we possess. For that reason, the Word given to us, our full union with Jesus as the revelation of Father, stands above and rules over every line in these visions. Nevertheless, you see in these visions, a full confirmation of what I teach. And of all that I have taught you, rooting you into the love of Father in which you live, stands above all.
“That Holy Thing” IS the fulfillment in us of Tabernacles Day One, God now dwelling IN His Body, walking upon this earth.
Utterly With Us
Now, Annie sees these things as most Christians see, as incidental to us. All that God does, He does utterly WITH us. Thus we see ourselves inside of God, doing with God whatever God is doing.
Annie positions this flood as “in the political, physical, and spiritual realms.” Political and physical are together in the next session, here we want to see our response to the spiritual flood of darkness out of the dragon’s mouth. And fully in our view are millions of precious Spirit-filled believers in Jesus scattered across the entire planet. And I will give power to my two witnesses… These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands (Revelation 11:3-4).
The Anointing Oil
I want to talk more about that oil, for it is by that oil, that power flowing out of God’s very Heart, His throne, by which we shatter the image of the serpent and establish the image of Christ as the revelation of Father inside of this arena of our victory. That oil is the covering of our spirits over God’s people.
We never again think of ourselves as separate from Father or as separate from Christ our only life or as separate from Our Holy Spirit flowing out of us, for such a consideration is impossible. We are symmorphosed with Christ as the dwelling place of Father forever. Let’s get used to being what we are.
The Oil that Lights the Church
My wife told me of an Avon customer of hers, a little old Hispanic woman who is Catholic, loves Jesus, listens to Joel Osteen, but who won’t go to any church except Catholic Mass. This dear saint of God finds herself weeping in great sorrow very often. She thinks it’s because there is some problem with herself. I told Maureen to tell her that her weeping was the Father Himself, sharing His own burden and travail together with her, including her in His own Heart over His people.
I’m talking about the oil that lights the church. How many dear ones, tucked away here and there in secret, are sending forth that oil right now, though they know it not.
The Oil that Breaks
What is the position of any one happening to stand before the God of the whole earth? On his or her knees in awesome wonder that he/she is granted the unbelievable privilege of serving this dear one here or that little one there who is of such VALUE to our Father. As I mentioned, even Jesus wept.
It is broken hearts out from which this oil flows, hearts that are meek and lowly, hearts that see all others as better than themselves, sharing Heart with God. And it is that oil of power that breaks the spiritual flood of darkness as the serpent tries so desperately to keep his game afloat and his head away from that LOOMING chain. It shall come to pass in that day that his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck, and the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil (Isaiah 10:27).
Replacing with the True Image
Here is what is happening. This is a BIG deal. You see, we are talking about removing a false image by replacing it at every point with the true.
Consider this calling in God, remembering that the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. God never withdraws a gift or a calling He has already given – except through a specific legal path. You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God… You were the anointed cherub who covers; I established you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked back and forth in the midst of fiery stones (Ezekiel 28:13-14).
The Anointed Cherub Who Covers
Those who claim that Ezekiel was not referring to the serpent, the highest of all heavenly beings, only rob themselves from understanding the glory God is releasing now through us.
You, the anointed cherub who covers, I established you. Look around you at the world. God has not yet removed this gift and calling from the serpent. God will remove it ONLY as there is another taking his place.
Now, we have established clearly that Jesus replaced the serpent in all things – BUT only in substance. There is no appearance of Jesus as the covering over all things in the earth. And Jesus will never be found as He is except in the Body of His elect.
The Flow of Spirit Power
Here is what I am driving at. Our service (I am replacing the word “ministry,” which has become corrupted) under (not over) – our service under God’s people is to be that covering flow of anointing oil out from the throne of God that causes their lamps to burn as the very face of Jesus Christ.
I am in no way alone. David and Moses, John and Paul, Madame Guyon and John Wesley, Sam Fife and Charity Titus stand now towards me and towards you. Their hearts are burning with passion, right now, and you and I are the focus of all their desire. That flow of Spirit power comes forth from all God’s holy ones.
The Covering Oil
And that flow is towards this precious Church of God, now in her greatest hour of need, fleeing before the flood of darkness poured out against her. We break that darkness as one part of our breaking the image of the serpent by replacing his false covering with the tender compassion of the revelation of Jesus Christ.
And we do so by that same anointing oil flowing out of us to lift up and strengthen, to fill and keep, to fight for and win for all of these millions of Spirit-filled people MOST precious to Father, to provide even for those whose lamps are going out all the oil that they could ever need.
I can’t explain that covering oil to you. It is a reality you know only as you travail in the Spirit utterly together with Father.
