The mystery of the 144 000 firstborn.
EPHRAIM COMES BEFORE MANASSEH
Acts 15:13 And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:
14 #Simeon has declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for His name.
15 And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
17 That the rest of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, says the Lord, who does all these things.
18 Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.
19 Therefore my judgment is, that we trouble not them, who from among the Gentiles are turned to God.
Did you realize that King David’s army was 288,000 men strong?
King David maintained a standing army consisting of 12 divisions, each one representing one tribe of Israel. Each division numbered 24,000 men. Thus, King David’s army totalled 288,000 men.
This is a prophetic picture of the 2 groups of 144 000 Jew and Gentile One New Man manifested sons of God in this final generation.
In the Old Testament (1 Chronicles 27) we find that king David had an army that totaled 288,000 men (2×144,000). David also had a choir that was made up of 288 people. A military of 288,000, and a choir of 288 (2×144,000 and 2×144).
There are two groups of 144 000 in the book of Revelation and through this revelation, you will see and understand that it’s the restored tabernacle of David made up of the firstfuit Jews and Gentiles , which are the Melchizedeck royal priesthood according to 1 Peter 2 and Isaiah 61.
These are kings and priests unto God that reigns in righteousness because they have been brought into agreement with God through the order and similitude and pattern of Christ according to John 12:23:26, Philippians 2 and 3, 1 Peter 4:1-5 and Romans 8:12-19.
Out of the natural and Spiritual jews God ordained that there shall be a firstfuit company of kingdom forerunners during the time of the harvest. This was His plan right from the beginning and through their function and Holy Spirit apostolic and prophetic ministries a great host of saints shall be schooled, trained, equipped and nurtured as with the first 12 Apostles. God needs faith in the earth to move.
Ezekiel 37:15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, you son of man, take you one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel, his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in your hand.
18 And when the children of your people shall speak unto you, saying, Will you not show us what you mean by these?
19 Say unto them, Thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in my hand.
20 And the sticks on which you write shall be in your hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus says the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, where they are gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:
23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places, in which they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, in which your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell there, even they, and their children, and their children’s children forever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
28 And the nations shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them forevermore.
Ephesians 2:10-16 (NKJV)
“For we are His workmanship, CREATED IN CHRIST JESUS FOR GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED BEFOREHAND THAT WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM ……….But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the Blood of Christ. For He Himself is our Peace, who has made both ONE, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, ……… so as to create in Himself ONE NEW MAN FROM TWO, thus making peace, and that he might reconcile them BOTH to GOD in ONE BODY THROUGH the CROSS, thereby putting to death the enmity…”
This is the MANCHILD company of kingdom forerunners and firstfuits unto God that shall be brought into the glory and fulness of the Deity through manifested sonship.
These sons of God are the Governors of JUDAH, because they move and operate in the Governmental authority of the kingdom.
Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like a hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in sheaves; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
A mighty harvest shall be reaped through this end – time army of God of which it is written in Joel 2:
1 Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD comes, for it is near at hand;
2 A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great and strong people; there has not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, through the years of many generations.
3 A fire devours before them; and behind them a flame burns: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.
4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run.
5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devours the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array.
6 Before their face the people shall be in great pain: all faces are drained of color.
7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march each one on his way, and they shall not break their ranks:
8 Neither shall one jostle another; they shall walk each one in his path: and when they lunge between the swords, they shall not be wounded.
9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.
10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:
11 And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executes his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can endure it?
Psalm 110 speaks of the same.
God’s been building and raising up a people and preparing us to minister to the nations during the time of the harvest, which comes in during the time of the tribulation shakings and judgments of the sounding trumpets – Joel 2 and 4 and Revelation 14, yet so many are completely ignorant, complacent and expecting to be raptured.
Jesus said to me that He is establishing His bride, living temple and tabernacle as a beacon of hope during the time of the tribulation for the nations to flee to – Isaiah 60-66.
Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together grows unto a holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom you also are built together for a habitation of God through the Spirit.
I saw Jesus standing as big as the Empire States building years ago in the realm of the Spirit and a mighty whirlwind came forth from His left hand. Then I saw Him raise up a temple and as soon as the building was completed, He went into it.
God showed me that He is building His temple after the same pattern of the temple that was dedicated to Him by king Solomon.
First the house was built, which means we as the living stones were chiseled into shape and cut according to the different facets of God’s word to perfectly be joined together into that desired body and living temple.
Then the priests were consecrated unto God, being purified, raised up, set apart, discipled and disciplined to only follow the voice of the Master.
Now we are in the season that His Presence, power and glory is suddenly going to fill and permeate the temple.
The following word was spoken through – Larry Wilson.
A word from the Father unto His BRIDAL MANCHILD COMPANY of mature sons.
Unto the sons of God
“My precious Sons, you were predestined by Me before the foundation of the world to be My Sons and bear My Glory. You were chosen Spiritually by Me before you were conceived. The human mind does not understand this because it will only accept things that are factual, but I formed you in My heart before you were conceived naturally in your mothers’ wombs.
When I spoke creation into being, so too you were created and sang with Me in the heavens on the day of creation, and you will sing with Me again on My Kingdom Day as it comes to earth. Your song will be the New Song of praise and worship from the tabernacle of David.
Now you live on the earth as My Manchild company of Sons, Faithful Ones and Elect. The world does not know you, My church rejects you but this is because they do not understand the things of My Kingdom. When they reject you they reject Me to their own judgement.
All times are in My hands. Again I have kept the revealing of the best wine until last. You are the choicest wine. You are mellow, you are rich, and your aroma is a delight to My nostrils. My Choicest and best wine, I have kept preserved in My Secret Place until the last Feast and I will bring it out with great pride and joy to share with the world.
Do not concern yourselves with your earthly circumstances, for they will change. Some of you are feeling that you have made wrong decisions in your lives and are allowing the enemy to condemn you. Do not listen to this for you are in My hand. Believe this and be at rest. I have allowed you to make mistakes in order that I might perfect and change you. This is My business. Accept yourselves with joy. The enemy will try to attack you because he knows that you are an army to be feared.
Not as in My church day where I gave them Spiritual weapons for their warfare, but you are My weapons. You are My New army which I will unleash upon the earth. Man thinks of an army in terms of war and destruction, but My New army are warriors of peace and rest.
You are My New priesthood anointed to birth My Kingdom Day on the earth. You are My New prophets and teachers. You are My New creation with My Glory and Immortality in you.
Rest in who you are and do not be concerned with your temporal circumstances. These will change. You have a High calling and the cares of life will be loosed from you as shackles from a bondman. I am finishing My work in you.
I came forth a Spiritual man from a natural womb. You will come forth as natural people from a Spiritual womb. I forsook My Glory to be born a man; you will forsake your natural to be born a Glory people.
My Kingdom Day will be a day of rejoicing and praise. A day of great peace and joy never yet seen on the earth. You are My ministers of these things as you introduce the Feast of Tabernacles after the order of David. The earth is travailing under the influence of darkness but as you arise in My Light the darkness will be expelled.
Let Me be seen in your faces now. Let your New man come forth as the Day is dawning.
You are yet to experience a full personal intimate relationship with Me where I will call you by another name as I did with Solomon.
You have joy, responsibility, service and rewards set before you which you do not yet fully know. Be strong and overcome in My victory. Be a rock as mighty people of valour. Your travail is not in vain. I hear every cry and stand by you in every trial. I guide you even as hear My word to you. Your today, your tomorrow and eternity is laid down by Me. Have confidence and trust Me in this. My sheep hear My voice.
The day of your revealing is at hand. What Glory will fill the earth. You will have the joy and privilege of representing the Lord of the whole earth. Those who have rejected and hurt you, I will make them to confess that I was in you. I will not have My priesthood trodden down, and the honour I afford to you will Glorify Me for surely you will proclaim that I never left you or forsook you”.(end of quote)
Now notice the prophetic sequence of events revealed in Revelation 12 – 14, and during the reign of the anti-Christ we are reaping a mighty harvest.
You need to understand that the ‘Gentile’ Ephraim part of the MANCHILD shall come forth first because this was God’s plan from the beginning. Ephraim, although he was naturally born last being the youngest, was declared prophetically to be God’s firstborn son SPIRITUALLY.
This means that the Gentile sons of God shall now break through first into the mountaintop glory realm of God.
Genesis 48:13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near unto him.
14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands knowingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.
15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God who fed me all my life long unto this day,
16 The Angel who redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be perpetuated in them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father’s hand, to remove it from Ephraim’s head unto Manasseh’s head.
18 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put your right hand upon his head.
19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations.
20 And he blessed them that day, saying, In you shall Israel bless, saying, God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.
According to the Hebrew Bible, the Tribe of Manasseh (/məˈnæsə/; Hebrew: שבט מְנַשֶּׁה, Modern: Shevat Menashe, Tiberian: Shevaṭ Mənaššé, “who makes to forget”) was one of the Tribes of Israel. It is one of the ten lost tribes. Together with the Tribe of Ephraim, Manasseh also formed the House of Joseph.
After the death of Saul, all the tribes other than Judah remained loyal to the House of Saul, but after the death of Saul’s succeeding son Ish-bosheth to the throne of Israel, the Tribe of Manasseh joined the other northern Israelite tribes in making Judah’s king David the king of a re-united Kingdom of Israel.
Then about the time of the tribulation God says the following in Jeremiah 30
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2 Thus speaks the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write you all the words that I have spoken unto you in a book.
3 For, lo, the days come, says the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, says the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.
7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
8 For it shall come to pass in that day, says the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and will burst your bonds, and strangers shall no more enslave them:
9 But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
10 Therefore fear you not, O my servant Jacob, says the LORD; neither be dismayed, O Israel: for, lo, I will save you from afar, and your descendants from the land of their captivity; and Jacob shall return, and shall be in rest, and be quiet, and none shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with you, says the LORD, to save you: though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you, yet will I not make a full end of you: but I will correct you in just measure, and will not leave you altogether unpunished.
12 For thus says the LORD, Your bruise is incurable, and your wound is grievous.
13 There is none to plead your cause, that you may be bound up: you have no healing medicines.
14 All your lovers have forgotten you; they seek you not; for I have wounded you with the wound of an enemy, with the chastisement of a cruel one, for the multitude of your iniquity; because your sins were increased.
15 Why cry you over your affliction? your sorrow is incurable for the multitude of your iniquity: because your sins were increased, I have done these things unto you.
16 Therefore all they that devour you shall be devoured; and all your adversaries, everyone of them, shall go into captivity; and they that plunder you shall be plunder, and all that prey upon you will I make a prey.
17 For I will restore health unto you, and I will heal you of your wounds, says the LORD; because they called you an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeks after.
18 Thus says the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places; and the city shall be built upon its own mound, and the palace shall stand in its proper place.
19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
20 Their children also shall be as before, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
21 And their nobles shall be from themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that devoted his heart to approach unto me? says the LORD.
22 And you shall be my people, and I will be your God.
23 Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goes forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.
24 The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he has done it, and until he has performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days you shall consider it.
Now notice, as we’ve learned about Ephraim (THE GENTILES) that although he was born last naturally, he shall be SPIRITUALLY born first at the time of Jacob’s trouble into manifested sonship.
1 At the same time, says the LORD, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people.
2 Thus says the LORD, The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to give him rest.
3 The LORD has appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn you.
4 Again I will build you, and you shall be built, O virgin of Israel: you shall again be adorned with your timbrels, and shall go forth in the dances of them that make merry.
5 You shall yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.
6 For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.
7 For thus says the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: proclaim, give praise, and say, O LORD, save your people, the remnant of Israel.
8 Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the ends of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travails with child together: a great company shall return there.
9 They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, in which they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, #and Ephraim is my firstborn.
Ephraim Is Identified With The Gentile Peoples Of The World!
Ephraim, An Important Type Of Blessing To Non-Hebrews…Gentiles!
Much of Ephraim had been scattered and assimilated into the gene pool of gentiles, while Judah had remained a separate and identifiable Hebrew culture.
Thus we see the firstborn standing with the Lamb on Mount Zion in Revelation14, which is the Gentile firstfuit manifested sons of God that dwells in the glory of their Father according to Psalm 24:3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?
4 He that has clean hands, and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek your face, O Jacob. Selah.
Hebrews 12:22 But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, who are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.
It’s interesting to notice that the purified army of God now coming out of the fires of purification by the Spirit of burning in Joel 2 and 3 is the same army through which the harvest is reaped in Revelation 14.
Also this one new man that makes up the MANCHILD COMPANY of mature Jew and Gentile firstfuit sons are the 2 anointed ones in Zechariah 4:11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the lampstand and upon its left side?
12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What are these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes pour out the golden oil?
13 And he answered me and said, Know you not what these are? And I said, No, my lord.
14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
Are we not the wild olive that was grafted into the natural olive as recorded in Romans 11:17 And if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them, and with them partake of the root and fatness of the olive tree.
This prophetically also happens in
Genesis 48:13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim (GENTILE SONS) in his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh (JEWISH SONS) in his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near unto him.
God causes His SPIRITUALLY firstborn son Ephraim to stand on the right to be the predominant one.
Now see how the Holy Spirit confirms all of this through J Leland Earls;
And now consider the second application of the two olive trees. It is a further mystery, but now to be revealed. Does not the olive tree provide the oil for the lamps? The lamps could not be lit without the oil which flows through the golden pipes. Even so does this show, says the Lord, that there are those which must precede others.
There are those who must first receive the anointing of my Spirit that they may in turn channel it to others. Who are these two olive trees? I say to you, the two olive trees represent two anointed companies which must come forth first. These are the two anointed ones which stand before the Lord of the whole earth. (Zech. 4:14). They are the first-fruits of that which shall later come forth in the two lamp-stands or candlesticks. One shall stand on the right and one on the left.
The anointed company that stands on the right shall come forth in power at the very beginning of the tribulation. For the right stands for that which is active and predominant, while the left stands for that which is recessive and secondary. Therefore the right shall come forth first. For I am now anointing a first-fruits company which shall come forth in power at the very beginning of the tribulation period, and then shall follow very shortly the second anointed company which shall come forth in power after the tribulation period has begun. For the one shall precede the other even as the right takes precedence over the left.
Now consider further says the Lord. That which is on the right shall manifest as a first-fruits on the earth after a sheaf has been received into the heavenlies. And then shall follow that which is on the left. The left stands primarily for that earthly and physical portion of my people, even the seed of Abraham. For out of that people known as the Jews shall 144,000 be converted as a first-fruits of that which shall come forth during the tribulation. For during the tribulation period there shall be many of the physical seed of Abraham who shall turn unto the Lord and become a mighty witness to my truth.
After 144,000 Jews have been sealed and anointed as the olive tree on the left, then shall I begin to move by my spirit to bring forth the candlestick on the left. For the oil of my anointing shall flow through those that are sealed and they shall be used of me to light a flame amongst their own people. Then shall come into being the candlestick on the left as a spirit-filled body of called-out ones from that which shall shine brightly during the tribulation.
For they shall receive the power and anointing which was first upon the sealed ones, even the fruit of the olive tree, and it shall cause that which is symbolized by the candlestick to light up and burn brightly as others are turned to the Lord.
(End of prophecy)
If God lives inside of His people then why don’t we see His power and freedom manifested in the church?
Why are so many still bound by fleshly lusts and worldly desire?
I say to you that it’s because God’s people need a reformation and revelation and a divine impartation from the Spirit of wisdom of the power and ability of God to crucify the sinner in His children and to raise, train, divinely equip and discipline His offspring and cause the body of Christ to come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
I DECLARE, PROCLAIM AND DECREE BY THE SPIRIT OF ALMIGHTY GOD THAT THIS GENERATION SHALL WITNESS THE GLORY OF GOD UNVEILED WHEN HE SUDDENLY COMES TO MANIFEST HIMSELF WITHIN THE FINAL GENERATION, FIRST FRUIT SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
Yeshua of Judah declared to me “the life of My Spirit is coming to you. I have to leave you within the fires of My cleansing until you are completely clean, then I can receive you into myself. You move from spending time with Me to BEING WITH ME.”
THIS SHALL BE THE RESURRECTION SHIFT AND CATCHING UP OF THE MANCHILD COMPANY TO THE THRONE OF THE FATHER.
God the Father declared “YOU HAVE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE FATHER”
You shall see the glory of the New Creation, created after God in true righteousness and holiness, unveiled in the mature firstfuit sons and daughters.
THE TIME OF FULFILLMENT IS UPON US.
Ezekiel 37: 26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set My sanctuary in the midst of them forevermore.
27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
28 And the nations shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary shall be in the midst of them forevermore.
WE ARE MOVING INTO AN OPEN HEAVEN.
Ezekiel 36:23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the nations, which you have profaned in the midst of them; and the nations shall know that I am the LORD, says the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
24 For I will take you from among the nations, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and you shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.
27 And I will put My spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you shall keep My judgments, and do them.
GOD SHOWED ME THE IMMORTALITY AND GLORIFIED BODIES OF THE 144 000 FIRSTFRUITS SONS THAT SHALL STAND WITH HIM ON TOP OF MOUNT ZION.
Hebrews 12 shall be fulfilled in them as Father cause them to break through into His fullness which the top of Mount Zion, the realm of His glory.
This is what the Lord revealed to Annie Schisler about this hidden place: The Place of His Shared BeingThrough a new encounter of my spirit with Jesus, I entered a place I had never been before. It was very special and high as it was an exclusively separated place for someone very special and loved.
Upon entering, He let me know this place was for the beloved. The beauty was overwhelming and great peace and security emanated everywhere. The incomparable holiness of Christ Himself could be felt. It was a place without a single spot of contamination, purer than the purest crystal and impossible to be described with words. There was a complete absence of sin.
I could ascertain that not only Jesus was in that high place. But also the Father and the Holy Spirit were there in perfect harmony and unity! How can the holiness of that place ever be described?
No adequate words can be found. That translucent purity was the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit that permanently flowed together in perfect and high love and unity. This infinitely high and sublime place was captivating and attractive beyond all description.
Afterwards I saw how Jesus Himself was that place. It was actually inside His own being. Then I was able to comprehend that the Father and the Holy Spirit were actually sharing the place that had been prepared for His beloved.
That place had been set aside for those who were completely surrendered to Him, the beloved who had absorbed Him as a sponge absorbs water. Just like the sponge has nothing in itself, it is empty in itself, but with great absorbing capacity, the beloved that enter into that place can draw into themselves the essence of the Trinity while being contained in the Trinity.
What a precious reward for those lives that walked the way of surrender! Being attracted by such pure and high love held in the Trinity and prepared for His beloved, is the most precious reward that can ever be imagined. I then saw how His beloved changed from being like sponges into becoming liquid itself.
They had undergone a metamorphosis so Christ Himself, being wholly integrated into His nature, could absorb them. They experienced this transformation for they had given themselves in love to Him.(end of quote)
A word by J Leland Earls.
You shall note that it was the Lion of the tribe of Judah who prevailed to open the seven-sealed book (Rev. 5:5), yet it was a Lamb who took the book, or scroll, from the hand of Him that sat on the throne and opened the seals thereof (Rev. 5:6-7, 6:1). What does this portray? It portrays the truth of Jesus’ ministry as King-priest (Heb. 5:10, 7:1-2). As a priest, He is the Lamb of God who gave Himself as the perfect sacrifice on the cross and who ever lives to make intercession for the redeemed (Heb. 7:25-27). As a King, He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah who reigns on the throne of David (Isa. 9:6-7, Luke 1:31-33). Now, during this dispensation of redemption, His Lamb ministry predominates; that is why He is seen as a Lamb (Rev. 5:6).
But as the present dispensation draws to a close, and the seals of judgment are opened to bring to an end the mis-rule of man, it is the Lion ministry that begins to prevail; for Jesus the King begins to actively take over that which is rightfully His. He begins to exert the power and authority which was given to Him after His resurrection (Matt. 28:18), in such a way as to completely eliminate the usurpation of Satan-controlled man, and exercise His own right as King.
It is during the end-time period of the seals and the trumpets that forces of judgment are set in motion, so that man’s civilization will utterly collapse, and thus finally it becomes fulfilled that ‘the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and he shall reign for the eons.’ (Rev. 11:15). The lion nature of Jesus’ ruling authority must be made manifest, and this begins to prevail as the seals are opened, but it does not completely predominate until all rival rule and authority has been put down. First, His Lamb ministry of redemption must be completely fulfilled for the present age, even though His Lion ministry of Kingship begins to come to the fore.
This, my people, must also be the pattern in your own lives. First, you must fulfill the pattern of the Lamb. You must learn submission, meekness, sacrifice, and willingness to hear and follow the voice of the Shepherd (John 10:27), or you will never enter the Lion ministry of joint-rulership with Christ. If you are fully yielded and prepared as a Lamb, then you shall come forth in that end-time ministry of power, boldness and authority which is symbolized by the Lion.
The fact that the Lion of the tribe of Judah has begun to exercise His prerogatives will be manifested on the earth, not only by judgments upon man’s civilization, but also by the bringing forth of a people who shall enter into spiritual realms of ‘ruling with Christ’ that no people have ever experienced before, and which shall cause a spiritual ‘shaking’ and revival unprecedented in human history. Great shall be the glory, power, and dominion which shall be shown forth by a people who have first come into the fullness of the Lamb nature of full submission, and then are moved into the Lion ministry of the Lord’s end-time glorious church.
