Those that dwell in Zion.
THE GOSPEL OF DENOMINATIONALISM vs THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S KINGDOM?
Matthew 4:23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
This is the Gospel of the Kingdom unveiled.
Please understand and consider that this revelation is in agreement with Philippians 2 and 3 and Hebrews 12 that speaks about the upward call of God in Christ unto mature sonship.
Through a prophetic encounter while I was ministering to a pastor and his wife by the Spirit of God, the Father commissioned us and said – You go from this place into the Valley of decision spoken of in Joel 3 and you bring the rest of My people to this mountain.
1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.
2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of YHWH’s house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, to the house of the Elohim of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of YHWH from Jerusalem.
4 And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
5 O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the light of YHWH.
6 Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines, and they please themselves in the children of strangers.
7 Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots:
8 Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made:
9 And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not.
10 Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of YHWH, and for the glory of His majesty.
11 The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and YHWH alone shall be exalted in that day.
12 For the day of YHWH of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low:
This hill is none other than mount Zion the mountain and Kingdom and Jerusalem of God, the Lord’s holy habitation Heb 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.
We are brought forth into manifested sonship as a well equipped, well trained, discipled and disciplined people for our God is a holy God, as Yeshua Jesus declared to me in 2009 when I complained about the suffering of these purifying fires “I AM HOLY AND I HAVE TO LEAVE YOU IN THE FIRE UNTIL YOU ARE COMPLETELY CLEAN, THEN I CAN RECEIVE YOU INTO MYSELF. YOU MOVE FROM SPENDING TIME, TO BEING WITH ME, WHICH SPEAKS OF THE MARRIAGE AND HOLY UNION OF THE MESSIAH CHRIST AND HIS PURIFIED BRIDE.”
We become one with Him in vision, desire and kingdom purpose, for there’s a massive international harvest that must be reaped through the latter house outpouring of His Spirit before the end can come as the Apostle James admonished us in James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Master. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. 8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Master draweth nigh.
Those who shall dwell with Him in His manifested Presence and blazing glory through manifested sonship does not lift up their soul to the vanity of carnal things and desires through the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of this life spoken of in 1 John 2:15 -17,
for as He declared in Luke 12:15 Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
WE CANNOT LOVE THE WORLD AND CLAIM THAT WE ARE LOVERS OF GOD. WE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON WHOM THE FATHER DECLARES TO BE THE GOD OF MATERIALISTIC FORCE.
The eternal King of glory sets up His kingdom within those who allows themselves to be conquered by His love.
God says; “My kingdom is not of this world, (meaning an external carnal kingdom) like the carnal religious empires that men have built in My name. My kingdom is a spiritual kingdom that subdues all other kingdoms and I came to set up My kingdom inside of people’ s hearts in order to set them free from the influence of the external kingdoms of this world through which Satan as the god of this world operates to
plunge men into perdition.
Did I not rebuke Satan on the mountain in Matthew 4 when he tempted Me with the glamour of these carnal kingdoms and did I not declare that I am the
only One to be worshiped and not the works of men’ s hands?”
Luke 17:20 And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of YHWH should come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of YHWH cometh not with observation:
21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of YHWH is within you.
2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of YHWH with idols? for ye are the temple of the living Elohim; as YHWH hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be My people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith YHWH, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith YHWH the Almighty.
We are not to love nor esteem the vanities of this life. We are called to discover Him as our life and greatest of treasures.
Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! (Deuteronomy 15:9)
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve Elohim and mammon.
THE WEALTHIEST HAPPIEST MOST JOYFUL MAN IS HE WHO ENJOYES INTIMATE CLOSE COMPANIONSHIP WITH GOD. THIS INDEED IS THE FINE RAIMENT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE GOLDEN CHARACTER OF SPIRITUAL MATURITY AND ENLIGHTENED EYES BY WHICH HE CAUSES YOU TO BEHOLD THE BEAUTY OF GOD.
He spoke the following through J Leland Earls:
There is a great need now for the three things which I offer.
The first is gold tried in the fire.
Gold is a symbol of true spiritual character, brought about by the working of My Spirit and forged in the crucible of testing experiences.
I must have a people who are completely receptive to My workings in their inner being and thoroughly purged from the dross of their own ways.
The second is white raiment. This is symbolic of that righteousness and purity which only I can impart.
Only those who are fully clothed with this raiment can enter into the end-time ministry of that spiritual Body which I am raising up.
The third is eye-salve to anoint thine eyes. Only the revelation of My Spirit can cause you to see the mighty truths which I would have you know in this hour.
Since I counsel you to ‘buy’ of Me, there is a price which must be paid.
The price is simply the willingness to let Me have your life to do with it as I please. Only as there is complete yielding and obedience, can I be the means of bringing forth in your life pure gold, impart to you white raiment, and anoint your eyes to see My truth.
‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.’ (Rev. 3:20).
My people, I long to have that intimate communion with you which is described in these words.
But so few want to invite Me in to take complete control of their lives. This is the day that I am offering to make myself real to a people as never before in history.
Will you not open your heart and let Me have My way in you?
I am ready to show myself strong on your behalf. No other generation has had as great an opportunity as I am offering to you in this hour. I stand at the door and knock; the choice is yours.(end of quote)
The wealthiest man that ever lived King Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 2
1 I said in my heart, Come now, I will test you with mirth, therefore enjoy pleasure: and, behold, this also is vanity.
2 I said of laughter, It is mad: and of mirth, What use is it?
3 I sought in my heart to give myself unto wine, yet acquainting my heart with wisdom; and to lay hold on folly, till I might see what was good for the sons of men, which they should do under heaven all the days of their life.
4 I made myself great works; I built houses; I planted vineyards:
5 I made myself gardens and orchards, and I planted trees in them with all kind of fruit:
6 I made myself pools of water, with which to water the forest that brings forth trees:
7 I got myself male and female servants, and had servants born in my house; also I had great possessions of great and small cattle more than all that were in Jerusalem before me:
8 I gathered for myself also silver and gold, and the special treasures of kings and of the provinces: I got men singers and women singers, the delights of the sons of men, and musical instruments of all sorts.
9 So I was great, and increased more than all that were before me in Jerusalem: also my wisdom remained with me.
10 And whatsoever my eyes desired I kept not from them, I withheld not my heart from any joy; for my heart rejoiced in all my labor: and this was my reward of all my labor.
11 Then I looked on all the works that my hands had made, and on the labor that I had expended on it: and, behold, all was vanity and like grasping the wind, and there was no profit under the sun.
The thing is that so few Christian people realize that we are to go through a serious sanctification cleansing and and preparation to become this living, walking, moving tabernacle and dwelling of the Most High, for He asks the question in verse 3 and 4 of Psalm 24, Who shall ascend into the hill of YHWH? or who shall stand in His set-apart holy place? 4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
The Spirit of prophecy in Malachi reveals the purging of His priests – Malachi 3
1 Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Master, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to this temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith YHWH of hosts.
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap:
3 And he shall sit as a refiner and purifer of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto YHWH an offering in righteousness.
4 Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto YHWH, as in the days of old, and as in former years.
5 And I will come near to you to judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not me, saith YHWH of hosts.
How will you become His resting place, His holy habitation and dwelling if you keep following the desires of your carnal nature?
Jesus was clear when He said in John 14:23 If a man loves Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and We will come unto him, and make Our abode with him.
24 He that loves Me not keeps not My sayings: and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
Understand then beloved that if you desire to become this abode and dwelling place of the Lord then you need to heed the following scripture in 2 Corinthians 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
The practical application of these truths is to cry out in desperation on your knees before Him and ask the Lord to fulfill His promise in 1 Thess 5: 22 Abstain from all appearance of evil. 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 Faithful is He that calls you, who also will do it.
Only a perfect all powerful God can accomplish such an awesome work in a surrendered people for it is written in Phil 2: 12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. 13 For it is God who works in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.
The secret is to stop resisting and to allow Him to do His work in us because He is the builder of all things. We need to stop going our own way doing our own thing. How will the Lord build His house if we refuse to submit to His ways?
We are called to become a Jacob Generation and to explain this Holy Spirit revelation we need to go back and read again from Psalm 24.
We dealt with the questions asked in verse 3; Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? And who may stand in His holy place?
Then we find the requirements in verse 4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. 5 He shall receive blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face.
God is raising up a people in whom these truths will find it’s complete fulfilment and they are known as the bride of Christ, the sons of God, those that follow Him wherever He leads, His true disciples that have been disciplined in the ways of their Master.
This is that end time body of sold out believers through whom and in whom the glory of God will be revealed – Isaiah 60-66.
Psalm 24:6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face.
Why is Jacob’s example chosen?
It’s because prophetically his encounter with God at Bethel is a type and shadow of the Gospel of Jesus.
Genesis 28:10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.
11 And he lighted on a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. 13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac: the land where on you lie, to you will I give it, and to your seed; 14 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in you and in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. 15 And, behold, I am with you, and will keep you in all places where you go, and will bring you again into this land; for I will not leave you, until I have done that which I have spoken to you of.16 And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place;
and I knew it not.
17 And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.18 And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil on the top of it.19 And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. (Compare) 20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on,21 So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: 22 And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that you shall give me I will
surely give the tenth to you.
Has the Lord not also been just as faithful to us as we followed Him where He leads?
Has He not also always been with us?
Has He not also preserved and kept us until now?
Has He not also faithfully fed and clothed us as with our forefather Jacob?
God wants to establish your life as a Bethel, as a gate and living portal of heaven. Bethel means “HOUSE OF GOD”
Are we not called to be build up as living stones into a spiritual temple, tabernacle and habitation of the Lord our God?
Did Jesus not declare in Luke 17:21 that the kingdom is within His true followers?
In Psalm 24:7 we read, Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
Jesus declared to me about the latter rain outpouring through the final pentecost ” “I am suddenly coming into the upper chamber of the heart of My surrendered bride through whom My final Pentecost will be poured forth and Me and My beloved shall reap the fruits of our devotion and sacrifice as we gather the children of the final great harvest. Only those that love the truth shall be brought into My barn through the sickle of My word that I will speak through the mouths of My sons and daughters”
I was fellowshipping with a prophet friend of mine a while back and suddenly the Spirit of God spoke powerfully through her and revealed to me that the bride of Christ is the gates of the city of God through whom He is going to enter. In her surrenderedness to Him she becomes the city, the gates, the Jerusalem and habitation of God.
Exactly as God says in 2 Corinthians 6: for you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
Also very interesting to note that in Revelation 21: 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls: 12 means the governmental structure, administration and operation of the ruling kingdom of God through a mature overcoming people that will rule and reign with Jesus as kings and priests.
In Matthew 13 the Lord spoke the following; 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking fine pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
Did Jesus not pay the price by giving up everything to purchase us with His precious blood? We are indeed to Him that pearl of great price.
The Lord also revealed to me that this temple, tabernacle and habitation of God is raised up in the same manner and order as the temple of king Solomon. In it we find a pattern as we read in (1) 2 Chronicles 5:1 Thus all the work that Solomon made for the house of the LORD was finished:
(2) 11 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place: (for all the priests that were present were sanctified) (3) 13. that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD; 14 So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.
As with Jacob at Bethel, a people yielded and laid themselves down on the Rock Christ Jesus as God said to me, the principle of yielding oneself to the Rock opens the portals of heaven and you become the gate of heaven through whom He will enter to shake this final generation and receive the end-time harvest of souls.
God showed me the open door through which the sons are about to enter. Please compare the letter to the church of Philadelphia in Rev 3:7-13 to Isaiah 26. There is much that agrees and collaborates in these two scriptures about this prophetic time. He opens doors that no one can shut. He sets an open door before us in Rev 3 because we have kept the truth and persevered through our trials which has purified us and qualified us to enter into the bride-chamber through the key of David and this key is the heart of worship and thanksgiving and there is no greater worship to offer than a obedient heart.
The door for Him as the King of glory to enter in now is the HEART OF THE SURRENDERED BRIDE. In other words our hearts are the gates through which He will enter in and He is the gate through which the bride enters in and through this UNION OF LOVE WE BECOME ONE WITH HIM AND EACH OTHER AS THAT ONE BODY PROPHESIED IN JOHN 17.
Then notice in Isaiah 26 the decree goes forth that says… OPEN THE GATES that the righteous nation that keeps the truth may enter in, praise the Lord. In Rev 3 He promise that He will write on us the name of the city of our God (THE NEW JERUSALEM) which means the bride as God’s eternal dwelling place is that city. In Isaiah 26 it is declared that WE HAVE A STRONG CITY. We have waited for Him through His judgment on our lives through which God has purified us (verse 8 of Isa 26) the same as 2 Thess 1 where the bride is commended for her faithful endurance through His judgment and purification of her. Then it talks about when He comes in that day to be glorified in His people.
Then in verse 20 of Isaiah 26 God calls the bride into her chamber until the indignation is past. This is none other than passing through that open door of covenant protection that is set before her. The same as the 5 wise virgins that went in to meet the Bridegroom. This same event of the marriage and release were prophesied in Joel 2 because it is through the prepared bride that the latter rain outpouring shall occur. The same thing is mentioned in Rev 3 where God declares “I WILL KEEP YOU FROM THE HOUR OF TRIAL.
We are in a time where the sons of God who have followed the Lord wherever He leads will be caught up exactly as John declared in Revelation 4:1 After these things, I saw a door standing open in heaven. The first voice that I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.” Once this has happened we will operate from the throneroom which is the realm of constant revelation. We will then realise what it truly means to reign with Him as all of creation will see Him in us. We in Him and He in us.
This is that wheel within the wheel in Ezekiel as the corporate company of overcomers move in sync with the Lord as His Spirit moves. It will be like a divine dance of love as He said to me from the throne.
THE ESSENCE OF WORSHIP IS I AM THE MUSICIAN AND THE
COMPOSER, YOU ARE THE YIELDED INSTRUMENT IN MY HANDS THAT I PLAY AND YOUR LIFE IS THE MUSIC AND YOU ARE THE ETERNAL SONG I WILL SING TO MY FATHER. THE HOLY SPIRIT LEADS THE DANCE, SO LET US MAKE SOME MUSIC BRIDE OF CHRIST.
