The Grand Parenthesis
The Age of Grace
Gentiles Access to the Covenant and Promise
The Blessing of Messiah – The Seed of Promise
What about Those Not of the Physical Seed of Israel?
What WAS and WAS NOT Fulfilled by Jesus Christ
Leaving the Necessity for the Second Coming
Confirming the Covenant of God with Israel
And the World for Full Redemption and Deliverance?
The High Priest Must Come Out
And Send Sin Away by the Scapegoat
The Fulfillment of Leviticus 23:22
Apostle Paul’s Ministry to the Gentiles
In Leviticus 23:22 we find a clear indication of those, not being physically part of Israel, remembered before the Lord in these instructions concerning the spring harvest. Earlier in Leviticus 19:9-10, this is understood to apply to all harvests, including the fall, indicated by the “vine” and “grape” which is principally the harvest done at that time of the year. As we have shown the day by day fulfillment of the spring Holy Days and now proceed with how this applies to the “stranger” or those not of the physical lineage of Israel, we will later show the day by day fulfillment of the fall Holy Days and how they apply to the stranger as well. We emphasize that the Covenant of Blessing was with Abraham through Messiah. This was the place of blessing for Israel as well as Abraham’s descendants. When they rejected Moses leadership and therefore God in that relationship prior to receiving the first set of commandments by worshipping the Golden Calf, they went under the Law of Moses given to them in the second set of commandments. This was given to them as self-determined, free moral agents within their current understanding that God was an entity outside of them to which they agreed to do what He said. This secondary Covenant of God which was qualified under the Law of Moses was solely unto Israel and was only fulfilled, IN PART by the First Ministry of Messiah from 26-30 CE. When he was cut off in the middle or half way through, 3 and ½ years into the Covenant Confirmation 70th Week of Daniel 9:24-27, this left the remainder of the Law and the fall Holy Days unfulfilled until the remaining 3 and ½ years of the 70th Week were completed. This translates as well into Israel remaining as a separate people under this Covenant of the Law Moses and Messiah remaining to fulfill that Covenant with Israel BEFORE they and consequentially the world could be introduced in finality to the Covenant of Abraham in its fullness for which they were ordained in the finish of the Plan of God from the beginning.
No Confirmation UNTIL the Second Coming
Nor FULL and Finished Redemption
As we pointed out in our previous Sections the Second Coming would occur AFTER and immediately consequent upon the Seven Times of the Gentiles (7x360 or 2520 years) of Leviticus 26:18-39, Luke 21:24 and Romans 11:25-27 being finished. This long judgment against Israel began in the spring of 537 BCE and ended in spring 1984 with the Second Coming or Secret Coming of Messiah again to solely Israel. As the First Coming was solely unto Israel, and later carried to the Gentile world by the Apostle Paul, so the Second Coming follows suit. Specific dealings with the leadership of Israel, both in the Zionist State, called secularly Israel, as well as the numerous factions worldwide of serious Jews scattered abroad, were in direct contact with Messiah. This began in spring 1984, where simultaneously the Last Half or 3 and ½ years of Daniel’s 70th Week and the countdown of the 2300 days of Daniel 8:13-14 started and continued in intensity through the fall of 1987. Extensive and thorough contact in the Holy Land in Jerusalem and Canaan, during spring of 1987 through that fall including particularly the fall Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippour, and the Feast of Tabernacles was exercised fulfilling Daniel’s 70th Week and the 1290 and 1335 days of Daniel 12:11-12 of the 2300 days. We will show this in detail when we come to Daniel 12 in our exposition.
Daniel’s 70th Week and the 2300
Countdown Must Be Finished
In Order to Bring FULL Blessing
That 70th Week and the 2300 days being finished, other events would occur to bring Israel to repentance receiving Messiah OUTSIDE of the confines of national-physical-Israel as qualified under the Law of Moses, which would then be open to all or “whosoever will.” That blessing and message of revelation of FULL truth in God’s Timing destined for this hour and not before, however, consumes all other messages and ways God has dealt with mankind in previous centuries. This takes us beyond the Age of Grace, the Law of Moses, back to the basis for the Call of Abraham. It positions us at the beginning once again in the Garden of Eden addressing the problem that first ensued with Adam and Eve and their relationship with God. It brings us to that place before the Golden Calf was worshipped in place of the proper leadership of Moses where we are reintroduced to the faith of Abraham prior to the second set of commandments, which was given on the basis of the mindset of Adam of self-destiny. It is in returning here, to the Garden of Eden, that we receive from God afresh and anew the fullness of our faith in God’s Sovereignty, the reality that He controls all things for our good and blessing. Confronting anything less would NOT be the Redemption or the Deliverance promised not only for Israel, but for the entire creation. As specified in the Law and the Prophets, to which the testimonies of the Apostles witness in the New Testament, and in particular Romans 8, this is the hope of the believer in all ages until now awaiting that final revelation that brings the Final or Second Resurrection and Full Redemption.
Review of the 70 Weeks of Daniel 9:24-27
We saw how that from the Decree of Ezra in Ezra 7 in 458 BCE, in comparison with Psalms 122, the TRUE building of Jerusalem was the establishment of “thrones of judgment” or magistrates to govern. This is the real essence of building any city as Psalms 122 points out and in particular Jerusalem. The epitome of this government came according to the Covenant of God with Israel under the Law of Moses, with a traced lineage given in Matthew 1:1-18 back to Abraham, and in Luke 3:23-28 back to Adam. It was manifested in fall of 26 CE with the arrival of Messiah in his public ministry in the 70th Week of that 70 Weeks prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27, which was the final 7 years of 490 years. 483 of those years transpired from fall of 458 BCE when Ezra arrived in Jerusalem to fall 26 CE. They were divided in Daniel 9:24-27 as 7 Weeks or 49 years from 458 – 409 BCE for the building of the streets and wall in troublous times as seen in the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah, under Nehemiah’s governorship which ended in 409 BCE, according to well-recorded archeological records. This left 62 Weeks or 434 years until 26 CE totaling the aforesaid 483 years or 69 of the 70 Weeks of years.
Spring Holy Days Fulfilled, BUT NOT the Fall!!!
We find the spring Holy Days of Leviticus 23:1-21 fulfilled in the final days or 3 and ½ years into Messiah’s Ministry to Confirm the Covenant with Israel as he came into Jerusalem on Saturday the 10th day of Nisan, March 30, 30 CE and was hailed by the people as seen in Matthew 21:1-9, Mark 11:1-11, and Luke 19:28-48. This fulfilled the day when the Passover Lamb was selected on the 10th day of the First Month, as stated in the Law of Moses, Exodus 12:1-7, as a lamb without blemish and set aside for slaying or Preparation Day or the 14th day, which at the time of Messiah was, Nisan 14, April 3, 30 CE. With his slaying on the 14th day, Messiah fulfilled the Law of Exodus 12:1-7, where Leviticus 23:1-21 was fulfilled meticulously day-by-day as we showed in comparison with the testimonies of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in the New Testament. These were explained and covered in great detail in Section II including the fulfillment of Jubilee-year-counts in Messiah’s birth, whereby the actual year of his birth can be determined through the Law of Moses to be spring of 5 BCE in Leviticus 25 and prophecies of Isaiah 37 and II Kings 19, as we explained exhaustively.
Considering Leviticus 23:22 NOW
As we stated, we left Leviticus 23:22 for later consideration. We are now taking that upon us for exposition, including the applicable prophecies of the Law and the Prophets as well as the Ministry of the Apostle Paul to the Gentiles that they introduce, for fulfillment from 30 CE forward until the End of the Times of the Gentiles simultaneously ending the Age of Grace and the Gospel of Grace. We have seen this ends in the spring of 1984 when national Israel is picked back up for the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week running to fall of 1987, fulfilling the fall Holy Days, and Final Full Atonement or Cleansing of the Sanctuary associated with the 2300 day countdown of Daniel 8:13-14 and Daniel 12:1-13. Again, this was all covered extensively in Section I-VII, where the reader will have to return for continuity and complete understanding of that material proceeding forward from there at this time in our publication, IF he has not been reading and following thoroughly to this Section VIII.
And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the Lord your God.
The corners of the field and the gleanings that were left behind or dropped during the mass harvest were to be left for the poor and the stranger. Here is the ministry of the Apostle Paul according to Christ’s words in:
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
Paul was not sent specifically unto Israel but to the Gentiles, to identify a people from among them for the Name of the Lord, as stated in Romans Chapters 9, 10 and 11, as well as Ephesians 2. Notice, this verse 22 comes BETWEEN the spring Holy Days of Leviticus 23:1-21 and fall Holy Days of Leviticus 23:23 on. It is indicative of the 30 CE Cross of Christ and the portion of the same harvest to Israel given unto the Gentiles, in light of the spring harvest of the ministry of Jesus. This ran, in time span, until the completion and termination of the greater time period of 537 BCE – 1984 CE, called the Times of the Gentiles. This judgment of Seven Times of Leviticus 26:18 is displayed additionally in the numerous symbols and descriptions as given in Daniel 2, 7, 8, and 11. This greater period of judgment and Gentile, political domination over Israel had to be finished. The lesser timing, called “the Age of Grace,” we are now extensively addressing, when the Gentiles were given access to the spring harvest of Israel running from 30 CE to that same end of 1984, had to additionally end as well. Upon BOTH of those periods being simultaneously consummated in the Second Coming of Christ in the spring of 1984, we would expect the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th week to ensue simultaneously as well, culminating with the fulfillment of the fall season of Holy Days of Leviticus 23:23-44 that were not fulfilled in Messiah from 26-30 CE. Additionally, the 2300- day countdown would start simultaneously with the start of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week as we covered extensively in Section VII.
The Moment in Time – the Return of Messiah
It is extremely important, in order to retain our bearings clearly, to understand that two periods ended in spring 1984 and two OTHER periods started in spring 1984. 537 BCE to 1984 – the Times of the Gentiles and 30 CE to 1984 – the Age of Grace simultaneously ended on March 18, 1984. On that same day and moment in time, March 18, 1984, 3 and ½ years or 42 months - spring 1984 to fall 1987 – the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and the 2300-day countdown to the cleansing of the Sanctuary of Daniel 8:13-14 simultaneously began.
We are now addressing the time-period concerning spring 30 CE to spring 1984 commonly called the Age of Grace initiated by the national rejection of Messiah by Israel.
The Manifold Wisdom of God
That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs,
And of the same body,
And partakers of his promise in Christ
By the gospel: Ephesians 3:6
There was a dispensational effect to the cross of Christ and the fact that he was rejected by Israel. We wish to expand that aspect in correspondence to the space between the spring and fall Holy Days of Leviticus 23. There we have the gleanings of the field or those pieces of harvested barley or wheat that are dropped in Leviticus 23:22. Additionally there were the uncut or unharvested portions in the corners. Both of these were to be left behind for the poor and the stranger, after any field was harvested. This is the place in the Torah, or Law of Moses, for the Gentile Dispensation called “the Age of Grace,” between the First month and Seventh month of Holy Days given to Israel.
The mystery is before us right within the original blessing to Abraham and Isaac.
1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:
2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:
3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curses thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;
The question is just HOW would the blessing be extended outside of Abraham’s physical lineage? Additionally, biblically it is quite clear that between the rivers Nile and Euphrates, as stated in the promise to Abraham is “the earth.” Prophecy cannot be rightly understood when venturing outside of these boundaries. Even the Gentile kingdoms such as the Roman Empire and others have no bearing in prophecy except how, when, and why they are involved with the Holy Land. China and its great history and ancient dynasties are not mentioned, because they never entered or affected the Holy Land BETWEEN THE RIVERS NILE AND EUPHRATES. This is Prophecy 101 and failure of so called Bible know-it-alls in Christendom to take this elementary course, thus ignoring its strict parameters, is one of the chief ways God has caused the wisdom-of-the-wise to come to naught, as we also mentioned earlier with Judaism as well and their erroneous calendar in Section I. As stated in Isaiah 2:1-4, Micah 4:1-2, and Zechariah 14:16-21, interpreted rightly, one must be in the value of WHAT HAS TRANSPIRED in fulfillment of the Law and Prophets between the rivers, and primarily Jerusalem, to receive the blessing. It does not mean, as extreme literalism may teach, that one must be a nation between the rivers or physically relocate to this area in order to receive the blessing of Abraham, through his seed which is Messiah.
A Monarchy and Not a Democracy
As we understand from Deuteronomy 17:14-20, Israel’s government was to be a Monarchy. They were to be ruled by a King of God’s choice. Moving from the Law into the Testimony to that Law, or the Prophets, we can see the government of Israel was to be upon the shoulders of a special child born or Messiah. Although many scriptures speak of the blessing coming to the nations through Israel, it must always be qualified by Israel under a King and that King being the Son of David and Messiah, according to Psalms 89, 122, 132, Isaiah 9:6-7, 11:1-5, 16:5, 22:20-25, Jeremiah 23:5-8, 33:14-17, Ezekiel 34:24-25, 37:11-28, of which we have reproduced some of these scriptures below in our text. One may follow through with reading the others from his own Bible or Bible online.
6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse (Jesse is King David’s father), and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
2 And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord;
3 And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:
4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
5 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.
Ezekiel 37:11-28 (only selected verses here recorded)
12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
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, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever.
With this king on the throne and God’s Spirit put within Israel by his teaching, counsel, and understanding, we can then see the fulfillment of all nations serving God through this formula according to Isaiah 2:1-4, Micah 4:1-2, Zechariah 14:16-21 as we mentioned earlier. This was the overall vision of Israel and the nations seeking God through the manifestation of Him in Israel with Messiah on the throne and leading the nations. The goal is according to Paul’s quote of Jeremiah 31:34 in Hebrews 8:11, that all may know God from the least to the greatest. This formula remains and has yet to be fulfilled, which fulfillment is now upon us in the end time after the Covenant of God with Israel under the Law of Moses is confirmed and finished in the Last Half of the 70th Week. This will fulfill the consequent Holy Days designated under the Law, returning all mankind, beginning with Israel, to the Covenant of God with Abraham, the completion of our faith to rest in God as Sovereign and walk with Him in harmony and blessing to ourselves and all people and creation around us. This completes ALL factors necessary for those prophecies to be fulfilled once Israel is converted and redeemed under the Covenant of God with Abraham, the Covenant of Promise and God’s Sovereignty for Blessing to all nations.
A King to the People
A Prince from God
One of the things that we would point out in passing here, it will be noticed that many scriptures speak of Messiah as a King like unto David. However, he is also called in the final analysis, Michael the Great PRINCE. The understanding of this, as given by Michael, is that again in the final analysis there is only ONE KING, and that is the Creator God, King of the Universe. Therefore Messiah, as God’s channel to make Him known, is the firstborn of many brethren where we too are ordained to be kings and priests with God. As Paul brings out with respect to the final analysis in I Corinthians 15:24-28, the day will come when the Messiah, the firstborn, will finish his work and return to a lesser place of dominance whereby, from that point, God will be understood as “all and in all;” thus, we have the lesser designation under King which is “Prince.” God is the Eternal King, and Messiah is Prince under that greater Authority, even as a son is subject to his father.
Messiah’s Rejection by Israel
Is the Access to the Gentiles.
According to the Psalms 22:1-18, David prophetically speaking there, one need only read the accounts of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John to see the parallels and prophetic fulfillment of the those verses in Christ’s rejection. According to John 19:15, national Israel, steered to support Caesar’s kingship over them by the leadership represented in Psalms 22 by the “bulls of Bashan” (beasts in a place of honor, not having understanding according to Psalms 49:20 and their verbal accusations, rejected and killed their rightful King and Messiah, the Son of David. According to the Law and the Prophets as we have listed above, Messiah was the mandatory element and source for the successful application of the very formula for Israel’s blessing and consequently the world’s benefit as well.
Considering further in Psalms 22:18-31, consequent upon Christ being delivered via his resurrection, pictured in verses 19-22, David says in verse 23,
Ye that fear the Lord, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him, and fear him all ye the seed of Israel.
Of course, this was only a remnant. National Israel remained in rejection of their King. Yet, we see in verse 27 and 28,
All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the kingdom is the Lord’s: and he is the governor among the nations.
Therefore, this blessing came to the nations when Christ was rejected by national Israel.
In Isaiah 52:13-54:1, here again, as we saw with David and Psalms 22, Isaiah shows the rejection of Christ by Israel and the blessing going out to Gentiles consequent upon that, in particular verses 13-15 of Chapter 52, which is purely Gentiles as is Isaiah 54:1.
52:15, So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.
54:1, Sing, O barren, thou that didst not bear; break forth into singing, and cry aloud, thou that didst not travail with child: for more are the children of the desolate (Gentiles as stated in Ephesians 2:11-12) than the children of the married wife (Israel as seen in Jeremiah 3), saith the Lord.
In verse 11 in our above-mentioned portion, we have both the remnant as historically recorded in Acts, and the Gentiles as it states, my righteous servant shall justify many.
53:11, He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
Moving back to the Psalms combined with Isaiah,
22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
23 This is the Lord's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
13 Sanctify the Lord of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.
14 And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
15 And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken.
16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples.
17 And I will wait upon the Lord, that hides his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him.
18 Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.
19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
21 And they shall pass through it, hardly bestead and hungry: and it shall come to pass, that when they shall be hungry, they shall fret themselves, and curse their king and their God, and look upward.
22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.
9:1 Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.
2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.
Here in Psalms 118 compared with Isaiah 8 and 9, we see once again consequent upon the rejection of the Head of the Corner or Messiah, Israel curses their king and God, yet looks upward to find only darkness and no answer. Therefore, the blessing goes beyond Jordan and the earth, understood to be between the rivers Nile and Euphrates, to the land of the shadow of death. This clearly is another metaphorical reference of the extension to the Gentiles of the truth, or great light, based upon it being offered to, and then rejected by, Israel.
Paul in Romans 10:19 quotes Deuteronomy 32:20-21
20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
Of course, the ultimate provocation of God’s jealousy due to Israel’s unbelief was the preference of Caesar as king rather than the king of God’s choice, Jesus the Messiah, as we have seen from John 19:15. Therefore, as a result, God says here he would provoke Israel to jealousy by a nation not knowing God or a foolish nation. This is exactly the Pharisee’s opinion of taking any truth to the Gentiles, as can be plainly seen in the Act 22 riot that occurred around Paul telling of his calling to go unto the nations. Once all the truth is brought out center stage by Michael of Daniel 10:21 and 12:1-4, it is at that time of the full end of all timings and dealings with both the Gentiles and Israel, now in our days currently before us, that Israel will see that is not to their advantage to refuse it. They will then know that this truth brings to full fruition all that has been foretold by the Prophets.
It is in this rejection of Messiah by Israel and then consequential move to the Gentiles by Apostle Paul, that the cross and blood of Christ have their dispensational significance. The blessing that was to be given to Israel, and was given to the believing remnant as we have seen previously, is the knowledge of God in its fullness or the Holy Spirit. It was essential that anyone being brought into this enlightenment first accept the structural channel for that. This was to accept the Messiah as God’s way to the truth and the life. National Israel, being in blindness prior to Jesus ministry, according to the curse of Leviticus 26:18-39 and verse 19 in particular, “heaven as iron” meaning no understanding from God, rejected Christ and the channel to the blessing. By that rejection in 30 CE we have an end to a 1954-year period of time from the Call of Abraham in 1925 BCE that temporarily ended God’s dealings with national Israel. We are certain this is temporary based upon the 70th Week of Daniel 9:24-27 being only partially fulfilled with the cutting off of Messiah in the midst of, or 3 and ½ years into, that week. This left 3 and ½ years unfulfilled along with the fall Holy Days and, as we show later in this Section, the fulfillment of the Scapegoat or ceremony of the High Priest to take sin away. This fulfillment would come AFTER the Times of the Gentiles with the Second Coming of Messiah.
Abraham<1954yrs>Messiah Cut Off<1954yrs>End Time
Physical Israel 1954 Years>|<Gentile Access 1954 Years
Gentiles Access to the SAME Promise
According to Daniel 7:25-27 and Daniel 12:6-7, that remaining 3 and ½ years or time times and the dividing of time, or time, times and a half, of Daniel’s 70th Covenant Week promised to the nation of Israel would come at the time of the end just before the exposure and removal of the evil domination over the world and the Full Redemption and deliverance. The Second Coming would initiate this process to FULL and finished blessing, the removal of sin entirely, destroying the Man of Sin by the brightness or enlightenment contingent upon Messiah’s coming and full manifestation as stated by Apostle Paul in II Thessalonians 2 which is based upon Daniel 12:1-7 among many Old Testament references. Therefore from 30 CE, the cross and blood, or death of Christ, marked the national rejection by Israel of their Messiah and channel to the blessing. This also marked the beginning of direct access to the blessing for the Gentiles. This blessing came to the Gentiles, as we have seen above in the Law and the Prophets, consequent on the cross and death of Christ. By the way of this rejection, the blessing reserved for Israel could now be given to the Gentiles, even the full counsel of God or the Holy Spirit, pictured as the part of the same spring harvest of Leviticus 23:1-22, fulfilling verse 22 in particular. Hence Paul explains his ministry in his letter to the Ephesians as follows where we again first quote Leviticus 23:22 and then proceed to Paul’s explanation:
And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reapest, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest: thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am the Lord your God.
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers (remember “strangers” is the term used of those who were to harvest the gleanings and corners of the field in Leviticus 23:22) from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. (The blood shed being a witness of the life given up or the cutting off of Christ which was the access to the Gentiles as Paul goes on to say in the following verses.)
14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
18 For through him we BOTH have access by one Spirit unto the Father. (Both receive the same wheat harvest or the Holy Spirit or the Mind of Christ put within the believers of both Jews first on Pentecost and beyond, and then Gentiles from Acts 10 and the conversion of Cornelius by Peter, concerning which the particular commission was then given to the Apostle Paul to go unto the Gentiles according to Galatians 1:11-2:10.)
19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto a holy temple in the Lord:
22 In whom ye also are builded together for a habitation of God through the Spirit.
In this manner or by the cross of Christ marking Christ’s rejection by national Israel, the Jews that received Christ and the Gentiles that received Christ were now one body, both having access, by one understanding or the mindset of God, unto God as Father, or the Holy Spirit indwelling them. This called out company, a remnant from the Jews and all Gentiles who received Christ, commonly called the Church, awaited the fulfillment of the Covenant to Israel or the last 3 and ½ years of Daniel’s 70th Week for the full manifestation and final or Second Resurrection.
Access Does Not Mean They ALL Came
Into the Holy of Holies by the Blood of Messiah,
Receiving the Holy Spirit in FULL Truth.
The Book of Hebrews Shows They DID NOT!!!
In this group, there were Jews and Gentiles that were enlightened with full knowledge as were the Apostles, who were as Messiah fully. They were Sons of God already raised in the First Resurrection of John 5:24-25, in full maturity being indwelt by the Holy Spirit and manifest as Sons Born of God. They, like the Apostle Paul in his argument in the Book of Hebrews, had come to perfection or completion, entering into the Holy of Holies in the spiritual sense or the heavenly sanctuary, with FULL UNDERSTANDING.
What About the Majority?
And Where Are We at the
End of the Age of Grace?
Additionally, for the most part even while the Apostles were physically on the earth, we have a majority of Christians that were only “children” and not full mature Sons. This was due to retrogressive moves by those taking leadership that were not in this ultimate, enlightened position. Jesus stated they would be opposed to the true Apostles, as we see in the false apostles of Matthew 13:18-30, II Corinthians 11, II Peter 2, Jude, and I John 2:18-19 leading the church by the end of Paul’s life as he describes it in II Timothy 3. Paul had already encountered them. With regard to the most informed assembly in Ephesus, as stated in Acts 20:25-31 he classified this pseudo-leadership as wolves not sparing the flock, joined by men teaching perverse things and leading away a following after them; it is thus we have those only potentially sons. They did not enter the Holy of Holies due to this false leadership that put them back under the Law of Moses in some respect and limited the full message that Messiah gave in its purity to true Apostles personally, first of all to Peter, and then to the rest of the disciples on the Day of Pentecost. Those that were short of full truth were limited by having their access blocked under a false view or shortsighted understanding. They are referenced as children, under atonement for sin and having a portion of the Spirit via their understanding about Messiah and his work for them; they have a profession of access to the Father by the way of Messiah being their go-between or advocate. This left them as sinners set apart from the rest of totally, unenlightened humanity by their belief and profession, thereby “saved” in Messiah and the hope of his return. This is the entire state of all of Christendom at the end time, children awaiting the adoption of full deliverance and placing as Sons upon Christ’s return, being ONLY THEN FULLY INDWELT by a complete understanding, the Holy Spirit. They, along with the Israel that had rejected Christ, wait for the fulfillment of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Covenant Week, and those subsequent events to transpire upon which there will be the Final or Second Resurrection to full life and knowledge.
Example or Ensamples to the Rest
That Had Not Arrived
To the Understanding and Status of the Apostles
It is worthy of note here, that Paul and the other Apostles largely wrote their epistles in the attitude of approaching a position they had already, but presented themselves as if they did not have that position. They WERE INDEED TRULY raised from the dead and were new-born, manifested Sons of God having heard the voice of Messiah by a full understanding then placed in them raising them to life according to
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that hears my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
The concept of being sinners and awaiting deliverance was finished for them by having the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This is as Apostle John states it:
I John 3:9
9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
However, they wrote to others that had the potential of that understanding but HAD NOT YET ARRIVED, for it is a higher understanding and revelation than blood atonement and forgiveness under the Gospel of Grace, or the Law of Moses before it, whereby this perfection and completion as a fully manifested Son is attained, entirely doing away with sin as nonexistent, and not by works. Yet, other than predominantly the Apostles, those, which had not arrived at the status of I John 3:9, were still under the concept of having Christ’s work and advocacy in their behalf for what they perceived as sin as stated in
I John 2:1-2
1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not (This means he wrote unto them that they might come to understand and have the mindset that was given to John which is in Messiah received direct from God the Father). And if any man sin (if any man still be immature spiritually having not fully learned Christ and having not come to the statue of the full-grown man as had John and Paul), we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
In this respect, Paul and the other Apostles spoke of the coming of Christ again to complete the Apostles in their development, bringing them to the sinless condition of having the mindset of Messiah, the Holy Spirit, while they attempted during their own lifetime to lead others into that resurrection and the fullness of the new birth. It is in this attitude that most of their writings are stated. We see they transferred concepts to themselves, THROUGH WHICH THEY HAD ALREADY PASSED, counting themselves as if they had not attained, for the purpose of leading the rest of the believers unto the perfection they ALREADY HAD. With no one having that perfection at the end of the Age of Grace, the First Epistle of John, and much of the reason why the Apostles spoke as they did, remains an enigma well-witnessed in the various divisions of Christendom all claiming to be the “right way.” It is only in understanding this transition from spiritual children unto full Sons of God, which is strictly by an understanding of truth fully perceived, that the argument and statements in I John, in its entirety, can even begin to be fully understood. Here is key scripture that presents this transition and how the Apostles, which had arrived, used their experience, picturing themselves as having not yet arrived, for that purpose of leading others in the right direction to full sonship.
10 That I may know him
(We ask the reader: Did not Paul know Messiah??? Surely, he did; read Acts 9 and follow his life in Acts.),
and the power of his resurrection
(We ask the reader: Did not Paul know the power of Messiah’s resurrection, in light of hearing Messiah direct in Acts 9 according to John 5:24-25??? The answer is again, yes.),
and the fellowship of his sufferings
being made conformable unto his death
(According to Galatians 2:20 was not Paul already conformable unto Messiah’s death??? Yes, indeed he was already.);
11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead
(Was not Paul raised from the dead with others according to Ephesians 2:1-10??? Again yes!).
12 Not as though I had already attained
(It is imperative that one see Paul and the Apostles indeed had attained. They only represented themselves otherwise, so that they may lead others to the completion they ALREADY had. The reader need only ask this logical question of himself: HOW CAN ANYONE LEAD ANYONE TO ANOTHER LEVEL IF HE IS NOT ALREADY THERE HIMSELF???),
either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended
(Paul “counted” or reckoned himself not to have what he did indeed have):
but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus
(Quite obviously, Paul had been called an Apostle having met the mark by the understanding or Mind of Christ put within him.).
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded
(Let those having attained, being complete as manifested Sons, born of God, as stated in I John 3:9, be of the mind to lead others on in this manner):
and if in anything ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
Again, the problem today when reading Paul and the other Apostles, Christendom thinks they have what the Apostles are presenting as an accomplished fact . . . WHEN THEY DO NOT! From here or this place of assumed position, they then interpret the rest of the New Testament in such subjects as the resurrection as pertaining to their physical bodies and going to physical places after physical death. The Apostles did not speak of the physical body, changes to same or an after existence upon one physically dying, except to use such references to be applied to spiritually dying to self-determination and being raised in newness of life, thus honoring God’s Sovereignty as in Romans 6. This was accomplished by having Christ’s mindset put within them which raised one from the dead and put them in heaven – the spiritual position of full understanding as stated in Ephesians 2:1-10 which is the same resurrection spoken of in I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11 and I Corinthians 15. This is the same as in II Corinthians 5 where changes are referring to the collective body of Messiah and believers becoming the perfect body in the manifestation of the body’s preordained position and completion according the building of God at the Second Coming. All the scriptures of the Apostles as based upon the Law and the Prophets and not subject to private interpretation. Private interpretation is the false projection of all pulpits as we close the Age of Grace in the disgrace of their pseudo-leadership. One resurrection occurred at Christ’s First Coming according to John 5:24-25 and Ephesians 2:1-10. The other, which is the Final, Full Resurrection or Second Resurrection, occurs with Christ’s Second Coming according to John 5:28-29.
Second Resurrection Is the Same in Nature as the First
Whereas most will agree Ephesians 2 and John 5:24-25 are a spiritual awakening, yet thinking they have that experience behind them, when they do not, they then believe the future resurrection is something different, WHEN IT IS NOT!!! The spiritual resurrection is all there is, and all there ever will be. It happened at the time of Christ and the Apostles and then fell into dormancy with the false apostles winning the contest bringing all of Christendom to stop at blood atonement for sin and forgiveness, while going no further; this is well witnessed by the Book of Hebrews and Galatians. Therefore, the same resurrection at the time of Christ’s First Ministry will happen again on the full, grand scale with Israel and the entire world in due time in the Second Ministry now upon us. It is a spiritual awakening to full truth and has nothing to do with a change to the physical, human body. The change is to the collective “body” of believers that have been left at blood atonement and any concept of self-determination which brings condemnation and guilt, in hope of the final resurrection when Christ is publicly manifested offering completion and perfection through greater enlightenment according to Daniel 12:1-7, John 5:28-29, Revelation 10:7, Isaiah 27:13, Ezekiel 37, Isaiah 29, I Thessalonians 4:13-5:11, I Corinthians 15 and Roman 8, among other scriptures we could name.
Section VIII Epilogue - Practical Application
Moving from the Age of Grace
To the Everlasting Gospel
The Second Coming of Christ
The Time to Attain to the Resurrection or
Second Time of the Resurrection
The Law Unfulfilled of Leviticus 16
The Duties of the High Priest that Are
Left for Messiah’s Second Coming Bringing the
Total Elimination and Not Only the Covering of,
Or Righteous Payment for, Sin
Sinners Saved by Grace Replaced by
Manifested Sons of God
Following the practice as made clear in Isaiah 8:20 that we must bring truth, proving it is indeed enlightenment by aligning with the Law and the Prophets, we will now consider Leviticus 16 in comparison with Hebrews 9. For it is here and later in our consideration of Romans 7 and 8 that we experience with understanding, which is the real point, the Second Coming of Christ Incarnate in Us. Here we will see vividly, removing the dim glass of mist by Divine Design across the era of the Age of Grace. It is NOW clear what Christ did and did not fulfill in his First Ministry and how that was dispensed with limitations accordingly by that Design in the Age of Grace. This allowed only partial insight to those outside of the Apostles, and those directly under their authority. Once they passed on, or physically died, that partial insight was ALL that remained until the Second Coming. The Second Coming will fulfill the Law of Moses and completely remove it leaving only the Covenant of God with Abraham by Promise and not by works of the Law. Only upon that occurring will the Law indeed have served its purpose fully, ushering in the New Heaven and the New Earth wherein righteousness dwells, whereby God is understood as being All and in All. Again, this is by a revelation of truth changing the perception of the individual that receives it. It is not by works or the arrival of a perfect world as the natural man would view it - everyone having new physical bodies, floating from cloud to cloud playing a harp, and other such childish and downright foolish concepts. IT IS TIME TO GROW UP and mature as God’s Sons.
Leviticus 16: What Was and Was NOT Fulfilled
By Jesus Christ and Left for Him to Fulfill
Under the New Name Michael, the Great Prince
The Gospel of Grace – Entering the Holy of Holies
By the Blood of Christ Which Most Did Not So Enter
The Everlasting Gospel – The High Priest Comes Out
Of the Holy of Holies & Eliminates Sin, Not Just Covers It,
Atonement Is Finished and God Is All and In All
We ask the reader to take the time to thoroughly read these passages to which we will refer in our comments, so that he may follow, again, with continuity.
The Earthly Only a Representation, a Teaching Tool
Leading Us unto the Heavenly, the Reality
“…the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ”
In Leviticus 16 we have the Law as to atonement for Israel and the stranger that dwelt among them. This included entering the sanctuary with the sacrifice of one goat as a sin offering and then, upon that being fulfilled by the regimen stated there, the High Priest, in verse 21, came out to perform the yearly doing away of sin by confessing the sins of Israel and placing them upon the head of the scapegoat, which remained alive, in order to send those sins away.
(SPECIAL NOTE: Laid at the feet of the elders of Judaism through their spurious, oral traditions, we have a false teaching that the scapegoat was killed by the man taking it into the wilderness. Some teach the scapegoat is tossed over a cliff. Such a teaching shows their ignorance of the whole point of the scapegoat ritual. The atonement was accomplished within the sanctuary by the death and blood of the first or sacrificial goat, whereby the sins are confessed and placed on the head of the second or scapegoat, which remains alive, removing sin altogether from Israel, thus producing LIFE, OR RESURRECTION TO LIFE, ONCE BLOOD ATONEMENT IS FULFILLED!!!)
The Law as a Teacher or “Schoolmaster,”
Points to a Higher Spiritual Reality
As Paul points out, the earthly sanctuary and these rituals were only a temporary picture and pointing device to the permanent, heavenly sanctuary and what was done by our greater High Priest, Messiah to effectuate eternal, one-time atonement. Therefore, in the completed TWO Ministries of Messiah in both aspects of entering in and coming out, pictured in the sacrificed first goat and the living released second or scapegoat, Messiah does away with sin, once and for all between man and God. The key here is that Jesus Christ only fulfilled the part of the High Priest entering IN the sanctuary by blood sacrifice, in this case - his own blood. This made way for all to enter the Holy of Holies or the Heavenly Sanctuary, receiving that further understanding made accessible through the offering of Christ once and for all. This made it possible for man to be in the presence of God via the perfection and sacrifice of Christ accepted of God giving us the entry into the Holiest of All.
Waiting Outside – We Need a Jewish Mindset
What Paul does not emphasize and sums up in one verse, and in particular Hebrews 9:28, is the second portion of the FULL atonement. It could not be accomplished until the High Priest came out of the Holy of Holies to finish the atonement with the scapegoat ritual. This could only be in the greater fulfillment by the Return of Christ or his Appearing the Second Time!!! “Appearing the Second Time without Sin” is clearly understood by a Jew that fully participated with learning in the Day of Atonement and its rituals. Gentiles and Christianity for the most part do not understand this. When the High Priest entered to atone once a year, atonement was not certain until those outside in the congregation surrounding the Tabernacle / Temple saw him appear again, “the second time,” having seen him the FIRST TIME as he entered the Holy of Holies. The sacrificial sin offering, or the first goat slain, and that part of the ceremony being finished, the proof that the offering had been accepted was when the High Priest appeared the Second Time, coming OUTSIDE of the Holy of Holies to complete the ceremony with the live or scapegoat. If the atonement offering was not accepted, or not done properly, it would mean death to the High Priest. We know that deviation in the sacrificial rituals of the Law of Moses caused death as can be seen with Nadab and Abihu, sons of Aaron, the High Priest in Leviticus 10:1-3.
We notice in the ritual that the High Priest sprinkles the blood of the offering for himself, the bullock, while in the Holy of Holies, Seven Times. When he comes out of the Holy of Holies before, or in preparation for, the Second Part of the ritual, he sprinkles the blood of the bullock which was his personal, cleansing offering along with the blood of the first goat which was for the sins of Israel, Seven Times. The Second Half or Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, the Appearing of Messiah the Second Time, starts immediately when the SEVEN TIMES of the Gentiles of Leviticus 26:18-19, Luke 21:24, and Romans 11:25-27 is also finished. Notice that verse 27 of Romans 11 says: “…when I (God) shall take away their sins.” Now putting that with the fact that Paul instructs the Hebrews in Hebrews 9:28 that “To those that look for him” meaning those that are waiting for their great High Priest or Messiah to perform what is promised as just stated in Romans 11:27, “… take away their sins,” Messiah “SHALL appear the Second Time without sin unto salvation.” The atonement being accomplished in the sanctuary, the High Priest appears the Second Time or outside the sanctuary to “take away their sins.”
In Other Words, . . .
In comparing the Law and the Prophets in Leviticus 16 with what Paul is declaring in Hebrews 9, Messiah in his coming the First Time could only atone for sin by payment or a covering for sins, STILL PRESENT. Hence many will identify with the old Christian adage: “We are only sinners saved by grace.” We are forgiven under the blood sacrifice of Christ, in hope of the sinless state in the Resurrection when Christ APPEARS OR COMES THE SECOND TIME!!! Perhaps we are now getting it home to the reader what we mean by saying that other than the Apostles who entered into the heavenly sanctuary with Messiah by FULLY having his understanding, the rest of Christendom to this day, and most, even at the time of the Apostles, remained outside the Heavenly Holy of Holies awaiting the appearing of Messiah the Second Time to totally do away with sin altogether!!! This is what is pictured in the High Priest putting his hands on the scapegoat and confessing the sins of Israel, ALREADY ATONED FOR within the sanctuary, and sending them away. The atonement accomplished in the heavenly Holy of Holies, left the doing away of sin altogether UNACCOMPLISHED by Messiah’s First Ministry. It awaited the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week and the 2300 days to finish their count to 1335 days as stated in Daniel 12:12 for the blessing, for only then according to Daniel 8:13-14 could the TOTAL cleansing of the sanctuary be completed. This could not be accomplished until Messiah returned and that would happen when the Seven Times more judgment of Leviticus 26:18-39, Luke 21:24, and Romans 11:25-27 ran their course and finished in that Second Coming or when the High Priest Messiah came out of the Heavenly Holy of Holies again on earth for that finish of the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. Again, consider the list of things accomplished ONLY UPON THAT FULL 70TH WEEK BEING COMPLETED:
Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
Therefore, concisely stated:
Entering into the Holy of Holies
The Slain Goat – Messiah Offered for Sins
The Gospel of Grace
Coming Out of the Holy of Holies
The Scapegoat – Messiah Taking Away Sins
The Everlasting Gospel
Only upon BOTH Messiah Ministries in the First Half and later the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week being FINISHED, can Messiah come out with the message that does away with sin altogether in the Everlasting Gospel. We will continue to come back to this point, which is finished with the message from Michael that broadcasts the power of the Holy People, establishing the certain fact that God is Sovereign and controls all meticulously, therefore sin, BY THAT UNDERSTANDING OR REVELATION, no longer exists, negating the need for a payment, a covering, or forgiveness between God and man.
In Summation of the Age of Grace Now Over
Once the Apostles and those taught by them, which had the direct giving to them of the Mind of Christ in its purity called “receiving the Holy Spirit or the Fullness of the Holy Spirit,” died . . . the rest of the believers were left with only a portion of that Fullness and did not enter the Holy of Holies. This is mirrored in the Law of Moses by the congregation waiting OUTSIDE knowing Aaron, the High Priest, was in the Holy of Holies atoning for them, where they could not enter. In the reality with the First Ministry of Christ, believers were left under blood atonement, still sinners knowing Christ was between them and the righteousness of God in atonement for them awaiting the complete removal of sin or the sinless state in the Second Coming. THAT SINLESS STATE COMES VIA A REVELATION OF FULL TRUTH HELD BACK UNTIL THE SECOND COMING. It was available when Christ was here and the Apostles after him and came as the First Resurrection according to John 5:24-25. It was imparted only upon one totally entering, as a king and a priest with Messiah, the Heavenly Holy of Holies by the blood of Christ, as Paul was endeavoring to lead the Hebrews in the Book addressed to them. Again, we emphasize that Paul’s whole argument shows that THEY HAD NOT ENTERED.
Messiah’s FULL Message
Supersedes and Consumes
Confession, Forgiveness or Blood Covering
Notice how there is no mention of confession of sins or the need of forgiveness in that message of Messiah in John 5:24-25, much less any blood sacrifice. In fact, Jesus mentions his “blood” only once and that was in the Last Supper before he was betrayed and crucified. However, as we stated, this message called the Gospel of the Kingdom, once Messiah, the channel for that understanding was rejected by Israel, was no longer preached straight forward as in John 5:24-25. From that point, all was stated with a secondary understanding of confession of sin, forgiveness and blood atonement in the onetime offering of Christ called the Gospel of Grace, carried principally by the Apostle Paul. Jesus never preached such a formula for deliverance, and it will not suffice once he returns the Second Time. When he, and John the Baptist before him, preached repentance, it was with respect to looking for deliverance in something NEW. It was not new however, but different than where Israel was in their understanding during the time of John the Baptist. John told them in Luke 3 “the ax is laid to the root of the trees,” and it was to be hewn down and discarded for what was coming next. Israel had departed long ago from dependence on God’s Sovereignty and their relationship with Him on that basis. In Section III, we traced that departure as far as national-physical-Israel to the 32-33 day out from Egypt when they rejected Moses and therefore the Sovereignty of God represented in Moses’ ordain leadership in exchange for the Mystery of Iniquity manifested at that time in self-destiny accomplished by the works of their hands in the Golden Calf joined to their concept of serving God calling such service and worship a “feast unto the Lord.” They never departed from this concept; additionally, under the Second Set of Commandments called the Law of Moses, to which they subscribed, never allowed them into the Holy of Holies to be in the proper relationship with God. Therefore, it was a return to that relationship prior to the Golden Calf respecting he whom God had sent in Messiah, the ordained leadership under God’s Sovereignty, just as they had under Moses in exiting Egypt, to which John the Baptist and then Jesus Christ were calling the nation of Israel in 26-30 CE, the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week. Once Christ was rejected, the Gospel of the Kingdom via the Everlasting Gospel can only be preached and understood within the fullness and completion of the Second Half or Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, via Michael’s final broadcast of that truth, the only deliverance for all mankind. This was the same deliverance in Messiah’s brief First Ministry, experienced by ONLY those that FULLY entered the Heavenly Holy of Holies WITH MESSIAH. It was also presented as the view of the future as Paul spoke of Messiah’s return, the hope and expectation of those still sinners awaiting full redemption. This occurs NOW that the Law of Moses is fulfilled as of the completed 70th Week of Daniel, here in the end time. The Age of Grace is over and only the scapegoat feature, the Everlasting Gospel on the OUTSIDE, and other side of, blood atonement is available for deliverance.
Again, We Emphasize the SEVEN TIMES
The blood sprinkled SEVEN TIMES in the Holy of Holies and then on the altar once the High Priest comes out for the following scapegoat ceremony under the Law of Moses completing atonement for the doing away of sin, is indicative that the fulfillment of this final part of the FULL atonement is accomplish AFTER the SEVEN TIMES more judgement of Leviticus 26:18-39. Blood atonement under the Law up to Messiah’s blood atonement as well as Messiah’s blood atonement itself, as the provision and covering for the remission of sins, staying the penalty of death, ceases at the end of the Seven Times more judgement ushering in the Last Half of Messiah’s Ministry, the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, beginning March 18, 1984. The High Priest comes out for the doing away and elimination of sin negating the need for any more blood atonement. This is accomplished by the completion of the scapegoat ritual in its greater fulfillment in Messiah returned bringing the revelation of the Everlasting Gospel that makes sin nonexistent from that point forward.
The Everlasting Gospel
Consumes Lesser Understandings
Within that simple message even as it was in John 5:24-25, only NOW enhanced to be clearer without parables and the intended block that was on it when Jesus first preached it, we NOW have FULL Redemption redeeming all from that which Adam and Eve subjected us by their move and belief they imbibed that brought the bondage we all suffer, thus needing said Redemption. The Law fulfilled, entirely by Messiah and the Full 70th Week accomplished, releases the FULL truth without blocks via parables and other contingencies. Previous views of life and God centered around the finite and limited, illusionary concepts which propagate the idea that we can decided our own destiny through self-determination and freewill, solidified in Adam and Eve, and then imbibed as the Golden Calf in the collective body of Israel, have permeated every facet of any Bible related organization and religion without exception and can only be removed by a thorough understanding of the Everlasting Gospel. Those limited and finite views, justified and having temporary remedies within them for their era down through time since Adam and Eve, must give way to a broader understanding in the end time with Messiah’s Second Coming. Hence, we emphasize that the FULL Redemption must take us all the way back to that beginning, thus understanding what occurred there, and how that incomplete view and concept is removed by a more thorough and higher enlightenment in order to accomplish God’s FULL purpose.
Understanding the Transition
In dealing with Gentile Christians that were not in the full value of Paul’s understanding, thus needing to be led to the completion he ALREADY had, Romans 7 and 8, properly understood, present the same transition as the comparison between Hebrews 9 and Leviticus 16 for the Jew. Romans 7 shows the Gentile Christian under blood atonement for sin and trying to live a better life in the practical works that he believes should be the result of his conversion and commitment accordingly. This is indicative of being a believer no longer lost in the proverbial, typical Gentile world of that time. However, rather than trusting God to lead him and learning via that relationship under the concept that God controls all things, even those things that he perceives to be wrong and “sin,” he is endeavoring to measure his life by the Law of Moses. Although this was not given to the Gentiles, it was pushed back upon the people by the false apostles, we have mentioned before, that plagued Paul and eventually prevailed, thus leaving the entire world under its current understanding of religious regimen UNTIL THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL is understood, therefore providing the needed deliverance. This will remove the Man of Sin, the shortsighted, condemnatory doctrines, understandings and views of our existence that have prevailed prior to the giving of this FULL truth.
Under THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL as taught in the Gospel of the Kingdom by Jesus briefly in his First Ministry, there are only two commandments upon which all the Law and the Prophets hinge. Understanding those two, by way of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, the Law and the Prophets are fulfilled in the individual who, FROM THAT POINT is Born of God and can proceed to grow unencumbered by the Law of Moses, as well as instructions from those who, themselves, are still under the concept of self-determination, void of the full and true, new birth as full Sons of God even as Messiah is.
The Law of Moses was given to show it could not be kept. This is well-proven by the Last of the Ten Commandments which Paul uses in Romans 7, “Thou Shalt Not Covet.” It is impossible not to look at something desirable to us, whether it is the opposite sex, a new car, even a new trend or style on someone else, and not find the appeal naturally within our own hearts. Using that, Paul shows:
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
In being part of Christ’s spiritual body, the collective company owning Messiah as their husband, and therefore source of learning, they are cut off as if they had physically died from any other source of learning and authority; case in point is the Law of Moses. This cutting off as no longer existing and therefore dead, however, must be extended to the so-called scholars, commentaries, schools of doctrine, churches, television ministries, seminaries, and religion in any form all together, since they are derivative from the blind leaders of the blind needing instruction and truth within their OWN ranks. They must be put to death quite practically due to being based upon the wrong and illusionary concept of Adam which is self-determination, freewill, and choice to which the Law of Moses IS applied and has viable life. Consequent to that death, or cutting off of all other sources, we are raised again to life under another authority and source of learning, even God directly through His mindset being place within us by Messiah. This is the same as a woman who has lost her husband in death and married another husband. Paul states this as - he himself dying, yet living now by virtue of Christ living in him in the well-known verse of Galatians 2:20. He then transfers this to all true believers as the example, trying to lead them into what he clearly knew. As we will explain later in this Section, this does not mean we discard the Law of Moses as to its purpose, but rather come to a higher understanding through Messiah whereby it is fulfilled in a graduation process to the status with God as His Sons and Daughters. Being dead in trespasses and sins is also treated as being a child under tutors and teachers to lead us unto full sonship once those teachers have served their purpose to bring us unto the greater professor of higher learning the Messiah, Jesus Christ, even Michael the Great Prince.
The Letters of the Apostles Are a Jigsaw Puzzle
Explained but NOT Clearly Seen
However, for one that is reading Paul’s letters, without having fully that understanding he had, is the same as trying to construct a jigsaw puzzle without the picture on the box, while reading instructions from someone who saw it and is trying to explain how to assemble it. Jesus, verbally, in his First Ministry and the Apostles in writing afterward, were not given to speak in FULL disclosure. It was not the time. As Paul states in I Corinthians 13:9-12
For we know in part and prophesy in apart, but when that which is perfect is come, that which is in part shall be done away.
BUT WHAT ABOUT NOW???
In the First Resurrection, we had this limited presentation to the selected few. In Acts, we see how that only upon individuals coming to a particular point of learning, were they then to receive full explanation and understanding called “receiving of the Holy Spirit by the laying on of hands.” They were taken aside and taught more completely from the point they were, and brought to higher enlightenment in that meeting, characterized as the laying on of hands, with the Apostles. As Jesus stated it
He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
Therefore, only with their personal instruction to the individual called the “laying on of hands,” could that individual be brought into full truth or receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit. This has been unavailable since the death of the Apostles and those that saw the physical presence of Christ and first received instruction from him and those that were likewise given his authority. Again, all we have really had since then were those that have not arrived themselves, but believing they have indeed arrived, preaching a message that at best could only bring one to the status of still being a sinner and pointing him to the work of Christ on the cross in blood atonement for that sin and THAT IS ALL!!! The rest of religion past this covering for sin puts people on a false platform called “born again” and “sons of God” which is nothing more than a mirage that fades away in the Romans 7 experience. We are lifted in our human spirit at some revival to pray and study more and rejoice in that for a season, only to fall prey again and again to the wretch men that we are in this condition. Why? Because we are still under the illusion of self-destiny with God outside of us and we as children are trying to attain to our Father under the concept that we are doing the works and He is outside of us requiring more than we can produce where the Law of Moses only accents that inability to arrive.
Caught in the Proverbial Vacuum
Damned if We Do and Damned if We Don’t
All the while we are told, by those overseeing us, it is our fault because we need to come to church more, read and study more, pray more, etc. Therefore, we remain ever learning but never able to arrive at the status of the full-grown man as Jesus and Paul so were. To top all this off, we are told we will arrive only upon physically dying where will be given a brand-new, physical body that lives forever in some place that has streets of literal gold. Notice of course, they go to great lengths to show us these new bodies are sexless bodies, this being well-known to be one of the major places we, day to day in our thought life, find ourselves back in Romans 7, in repeated failure of “thou shalt not covet or lust after etc.,” particularly so with our natural, sexual makeup and attraction thereto. It is in this condition we have been left since the Apostles died and those who were taught by them. The false apostles took over from that point to bring us all to the “last days” where “perilous times have come.” What we see around us and experience in Romans 7, unable to get to Romans 8, is ALL that remains, leaving full truth unavailable. The Romans 8 status, in truth and full understanding, was given to a very few, all things considered, in the First Resurrection of 30 CE.
Coming Out of the Vacuum
Yet, we see that in the Second Resurrection, or the FULL and FINAL Resurrection, the truth is given to all as stated in Daniel 12:1-2, as Jesus also stated in John 5:28-29. There is no categorized and prerequisite attitude before the full message is explained as there HAD to be in the First Resurrection. There can be no deception in, or false apostles associated with, the Second Resurrection as there were indeed associated in the First Resurrection. We say “associated” because unless those of that time fully believed it, exactly from the Apostles and as the Apostles gave instruction, they were not raised to life, and still lacked full understanding, remaining as children trying to teach other children concerning something they had not learned themselves. The Second Resurrection would be so plainly stated, unlike the First Resurrection, that there could be no possible alternate interpretations as clearly was the case associated with the First Resurrection. Again, we state the purpose for the veil, or blinders, prevalent in the First Resurrection was to lead to the open door given to the Gentiles upon Israel rejecting their Messiah as prophesied, as we taught earlier in this same Section VIII above. Here in the Second Resurrection the message identifies those raised to life while at the same time identifies those raised to condemnation.
The Light Exposes:
The Plain and Bare Truth Reveals
In other words, the light exposes all things as they are. Turning on that light exposes what God has made. Is there opportunity to change with this message? Well of course, but only after one is exposed for what they have believed as being short of truth. Once the measure is given and the plum line is drawn, then one can see he is short and receive higher enlightenment and move upward. We here repeat Daniel 12:1-3 and emphasize verse 3 as well as Isaiah 1:18 which show the ability to change and be taught rightly:
1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. (Exposure by the truth being broadcast.)
3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Notice it does not speak of sins forgiven in this verse. It says the very sins themselves are changed to “white as snow” and “wool.” This is by revelation of full truth of the matter and perceiving it from God’s perspective in full disclosure.)
However, once the message is given and rejected, one is sealed out of higher enlightenment and grows no further, until he does indeed receive it. He has identified himself as raised to condemnation; he is still in the mindset of condemnation that condemns himself and others as seen in Romans 7. To put it another way, he has manifested that he believes STILL, no matter what he has been told of the truth, that he is doing his own works, deciding his own destiny, has freewill and a choice by his own perception, which perception only magnifies one’s condemnation when measured under the Law of Moses. If he believes in God, yet remains with this false and illusionary mindset originated in Adam and Eve, God is only a greater power to him. He believes that God only controls the Big Picture and the hairs of one’s head ARE NOT numbered. He believes he makes his own personal decisions which to him are not preset and a matter of God working in him leading him on to further understanding and maturing growth. He is off the foundation altogether, although God enlightened to a certain extent as a child, yet has been aborted from further development until he starts over or is born again rightly from the standpoint of God doing it all or God’s Sovereignty with no other god’s before him, not even oneself. It is in this condition that the Law of Moses has its full bearing to convince one of his inabilities to please God while under this concept of self-determination, freewill, and choice. He believes he and God are two separate entities, whereby the Law only magnifies that he is dead in trespasses and sins, not being able to keep those very things God, he is trying to please, has regimented.
And That Is the Way God Has Made Them
The point here is that God gives one to believe whatever they believe; He controls all things according to Isaiah 45:5-7, whether or not the individual understands God’s meticulous control. It is those raised to life that see that individual, with his shortsighted perception, for what they are, God’s creation, but left as the beast that understands not, NOT having knowledge of the Creator by that very Creator’s design. God has made all things. Starting at the smallest, one cell creatures, we come at last to the intellectually greatest of God’s creations, man. However, within that highest of all species there is a division. There are those who remain as the most, subtle beast of the field. This was the same as Adam once he denied FULL truth. Secondly, there are the Sons of God. They are given to know that they live and move as God in the flesh. THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL exposes both classes plainly:
· One is positive in the value of truth; he is raised to eternal life or manifested as having eternal life in conscious possession.
· The other is negative by virtue of lacking truth; he is raised to eternal condemnation or manifested as not having eternal life as a conscious possession. He is in the state of mind that is forever condemning, accusing him of failure and evil, whereby he accuses and measures his neighbor in the same manner. Why??? Because he is still under the illusion that he is doing, and God is doing separately. In such a mindset, one will NEVER come to the sinless state or be “born of God” and therefore unable to sin. It is the illusion that we are doing separate from God, leaving Him outside of His creation, and as well leaving us the product of our imaginations, again, an illusion.
The foundation of the message of full truth, THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL is impossible to be diluted or mixed into a deceptive doctrine. It is absolute in that it dictates that God does EVERYTHING. Any deviation from that mark and standard automatically exposes itself by making room for man to have his own say and way, thus SOMEHOW apart and separate from God’s direct action and control. Assuredly every lie will teach in some way or in some manner that man acts apart and not directly through God’s puppet strings. Again, the Grand Puppet Master is the Divine measure and any other view is an illusion and a deception given by God to keep that individual, for God’s Purpose at that particular time, away from the FULL Truth. The main reason is that the individual is not in the condition to receive it, and again that condition is preset by God. Separated from the tree of life and therefore in a delusion of false perception based upon self-destiny is the condition of all mankind at this hour of final revelation and the public manifestation of Messiah and the Blessing he brings.
Timing is Everything
However, this does not mean that God has not given the individual to come to truth EVENTUALLY in whatever progression God has ordained for him. The condition of the individual is NOT eternal, but the concept under which he exists IS!!! The concept of self-destiny is eternal and leaves one under a false perception, dead, a child and not a living mature Son of God. The truth of Sovereignty is equally eternal revealing what life really is, a true perception as a living mature Son of God. The individual in God’s good timing must move from one concept of existence unto another called in the Bible “raised from death to life.” Timing is everything where even the simple plants are a testimony to God’s control bringing them to the point that they bring forth fruit, as a matter of growth. The redemption and manifestation of the Sons of God also stated in Romans 8 is the end in view for all creation and is just now beginning to come to full fruition for all humanity in our day starting with Messiah and those that hear / understand him. In the broader spectrum of this change, it is designated to start from Jerusalem at the appearing publicly of Messiah in the change of government manifested there according to Ezekiel 21:24-27 as we have stated and will continue to present.
Kabbalah and Zohar – Kabunka and Zohaha
In short, for those that think they have the inside track with the Kabbalah and Zohar, they are manifested as raised to condemnation, shown up as not having the truth and indeed thinking that they affect God rather than the other way around. This makes such reasoning Kabunka and Zohaha, the worship of the Golden Calf as it ever was. Speaking of arriving at “levels,” shows a spirit of self-measurement which can only bring condemnation and guilt, when one does not arrive. Likewise, it produces a spirit of condemnation towards others, lording over others in pride when one feels he does so arrive. BUT . . . that is the way God has made those under that concept, and they will not change unless they discard the concept and move from death unto life; mark it and categorize it accordingly. We address this again just a few lines down with a serious challenge also given at the end of this entire publication.
The Everlasting Gospel
We here NOW will give that simple message already given at length in the First Link on our website entitled THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. The short version is simply: God controls ALL things, both what is considered evil and what is considered good, ALL being good in that it serves His Purpose. Upon that fact, we have the result of interaction with our fellowman in that we apply that understanding to another, as we would want it applied to us. It has been stated and left to interpretation in the Bible previously as: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all the heart, soul and might, and thy neighbor as thyself.”
Even More to the Point by Example
No matter how horrendous or how honorable, how beastly or how beautiful, how dastardly or how delightful, how ghastly or how good, how evil or elevating, . . . we could go on and on here, but the point frankly . . . if you scratched your head or an atom somewhere in the universe shifted a trillionth of a micro second, IT IS PREORDAINED, ALREADY WRITTEN, PRESET AND TRANSPIRES RIGHT ON TIME PER THE PREDETERMINED WILL OF THE CREATOR. And for those of Kabbalah and Zohar orientation . . . now listen closely . . . IT CANNOT BE CHANGED. If we prayed or did some great deed, or meditation, even pleaded with God as did Moses, and it appears to have changed God’s mind . . . THAT IS AN ILLUSION only more enhanced by one’s preconceived idea that “we pray and God answers.” Such a view is still under the concept of self-determination and for children in spiritual immaturity on the way, but not having arrived, to Son status. Truth is . . . one in this mindset is still operating as a child by God’s will for his development at that time. He prayed at a certain time by God’s predetermined will and received what appeared to be a result of God doing one’s own bidding, per this request. If we endeavor in mitzvot (good deeds) and perceive a good result and outcome (How many have done so and not received or seen what they desire?), then this too was only per God’s preset will unaffected in any, minutest manner by what we perceive is our actions toward that desired end. This is simply because whatever we did by our finite perception was only God acting as well. Again, there is no self-determination, freewill, and choice forming our destiny. That is the illusion. The reality is . . . that it was, is and will forever be God who works in us to will and do His good pleasure. There is no son-status recognition, no spiritual bar-mitzvah, and we remain as children until we are brought to recognition of God’s Sovereignty in all things. It is only from that point we have the true bar-mitzvah of God and are His Sons growing further accordingly. This is the mindset that is called the faith of Abraham and was the end in view of the Exodus from Egypt as Israel was cut-off from all sources in the Red Sea except God under Moses leadership. When they accepted channeling through the Golden Calf as a “feast unto the Lord,” they aborted the process and went under the Law of Moses. This was by Divine Design to bring all humanity, Israel first, to this hour and final stage in His Grand Plan.
Intelligent Design Recognized as Cause and Effect
All things are puppets on His strings operating in prefect harmony per His Purpose, like dominos set up and falling precisely from one to the other in a series of cause and effect, by Intelligent Design and placing. In that view, like a director calling the shots on a stage production by the prewritten script, controlling the white hats and the black hats, the PERCEIVED good and evil is all good and serves His Purpose occurring with fine, pin-point accuracy. Secondly, once in full belief and harmony with that truth, we approach all around us in that spirit and view, addressing each thing and each one with that concern and in that light. This is the Everlasting Good News and Life. Like we said, this is the raw truth of the matter, and no illusion can over throw it, but rather is exposed as just that . . . an illusion, better understood by a mature Son of God within the perspective of God controls all things, even our finite and illusionary perception which keeps us as children unable to get out of Romans 7.
In Contrast . . . The Purpose of the Last 6000 Years
The Last 6000 years since the record of Adam and our Bible beginnings in the Grand or Big Picture is a record of the BAD NEWS of what existence would be eternally, if the real truth were to remain hidden. The apparent and falsely, seeming truth, WHICH WAS and IS AN ILLUSION popularly accepted as THE truth, into which all men are born and consequentially also accept, is that WE decide everything. Therefore, history is a disastrous record that testifies to the continual demise of self-determination and choice of freewill, rendering no peace and no rest, but rather constant turmoil accordingly, rarely rewarded otherwise, all things considered by the eventual outcome.
Not Finding Fault, Just Respecting
What God Has Made and Categorizing Accordingly
All we are saying here is that such beliefs, and all that has come out of them, are also by direct and Divine Purpose to lead us to the next stage well on time and perfectly under God’s Intelligent Design and Plan. In that stage, we are entering what Paul and the Apostles had, as the few of that First Resurrection, but now transferred to all creation in raw and barebones truth as the Full and Final Resurrection or Divine Enlightenment.
Applying This to Properly Understand Romans 7 and 8
If we apply anything from the Bible, while still under the belief that WE are doing anything and are not puppets on God’s strings as the firm reality, we remain deceived no matter how religious and supposedly pious we are. Under this illusion, we are NOT in Christ, we are not a new creation; we are not crucified with Christ, with Christ living in us; we are not seated in heavenly places in Christ, all those things being true ONLY if we understand that it is God working in us to will and do HIS good pleasure. However, short of that understanding of full truth, as the presentation of Romans 7 shows, we MAY be concerned where through avid devotion, fasting and abstinence, prayer and meditation, introspective reasoning, and continual Bible study, we ardently endeavor to make those things true of ourselves. This is the place and position of the person, or even Paul, as he again transfers the example to himself when going through this experience in Romans 7 in order to arrive in Romans 8.
Remembering from Whence They Came
We must understand from where one came, in their minds or understanding, when they first heard the Apostle preach or the first instance of exposure to his message. They were lost in Gentile beliefs such as the Ephesians in Acts 19, worshiping false gods like Diana, or with multiple gods and superstitions as in Acts 20. They would respond to Paul’s message and soon after he left them, they were approached by Jews, for the most part, but also others in the area, as we have mentioned quite forcefully before, that had NOT entered the Heavenly Holy Holies. Therefore, they were NOT in the good of the fullness of the Holy Spirit. YET, they took to themselves this authority, while applying a version of the message of Christ using his name. Thereby coming in his name saying “Jesus is the Christ” within the natural and carnal mind, but NOT in spiritual reality, having not the Spirit of Christ in them, they interpreted and led by their unauthorized authority as Jesus indeed warned they would in Matthew 24:5 and 24. One need only read the letter from Paul to the Galatians to verify this fact, along with Acts 20:26-31, II Corinthians 11, II Peter 2, Jude and I John 2:18-19.
Any Permanent Self-Condemnation
As to one’s Relationship with God,
He Has NOT arrived to the
Understanding in Romans 8
The problem for the last 2000 years is that professing believers want to believe they have full truth and are ALREADY in Christ, having his mind in them. THEY DO NOT, THEY ARE NOT, and THEY HAVE NOT respectively! Hence, we have all the confusion when trying to understand Romans 7 moving to 8. Let us state it simply according to THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL with no holds barred, said bars having remained until now. In Romans 7, the man is God conscious, under some exposure to the Bible or a presentation of it, possibly going forward in a response to a crusade or preaching from the Bible. However, that very preacher which brought this response, has, himself, been stunted in his development. This is a cascading effect from hearing whatever he heard from a source that is immature and unlearned, not having the fullness as the Apostle Paul had, as well. Therefore, on and on it goes with children leading children claiming they have the fullness which they do NOT.
Children Leading Children
The childish view is that same view imbibed by Adam when he left his first estate and relationship with God. The knowledge of Good and Evil of which he partook dictates that God is an entity outside of man only controlling the greater parameters where we are left by our five senses to function for ourselves within those parameters by whatever we perceive we have been given in order to measure Good and Evil. The history of the Bible shows remarkable individuals such as Abraham that had a relationship with God of which one can only guess as to its foundation versus what we clearly experience as to our beginnings from Adam. However, we are told that Abraham believed God and it was counted or reckoned to Abraham as righteousness. What we are not told, and we will make clear here, is what, exactly in CLARITY, that means. Searching for that answer we have gone, in the past, to the so called wise among us that profess to have that explanation. This is, as we have stated before, the blind leaders of the blind, which are now PLAINLY in the ditch awaiting deliverance.
The Faith or Understanding of Abraham
That belief that Abraham had is - that if he raised his hand, it was God that raised it. In God, we live, move, and have our existence. It is God that works in us to will and do His good pleasure. If we can accept the bottom line that we are simply God in the flesh, by virtue of that understanding, then HOW CAN THERE BE ANY ERROR??? There is none, although there remains PLENTY OF QUESTIONS, and actions carried out from on-going education, due to a lack of further understanding as we grow, experience existence, and are maturing in that truth. IF we remain under the belief that God is outside of us and all that we see is not an expression of God in some form, one way or the other, then we are constantly condemned, dead, separated from the truth and the life necessary to live and grow. The standard of the Law of Moses makes it impossible to understand God, or exist without condemnation, believing He is outside judging us where it seems we cannot ever arrive. This leaves us as men most miserable, searching after, if perhaps we may find God. However, thankfully by receiving what Christ REALLY had to give, the Holy Spirit, or God’s way of looking at ourselves and all things, called the “Mind of Christ,” and not the false affirmations of the blind leaders of the blind, there is no condemnation, the Law is fulfilled in us, serving its purpose to drive us to the point of this conversion to see it is God in us and not we ourselves. From that point, we then can learn from Him, directly in confidence by understanding, what is best to do or not do and especially toward others, knowing that nothing is evil in and of itself; hence, we arrive in Romans 8 where there is no condemnation.
Proper Placement; Not Allocating Something as Evil
Whatever we think . . . is only His thoughts in us, whether they be of the opposite sex, anger or love, justice or injustice, building a house, tearing one down, or even our next step. All is of God, yet private at that point, in the great net of our mind that catches all displayed in our psyche, thoughts, and dreams. Now as to dreams, THERE is a real bunch of jigsaw pieces out of which we try helplessly to make sense, much less try and fix blame or responsibility! Yet, at the point that something enters our thought process there is no real challenge and apparent good or evil except by the standard and foundation we are bringing to bear toward those thoughts, privately in our own minds. Our relationship with God remains intact if we know all thought, and therefore our immediate thoughts, are all from the Creator, which in truth all of them are, even that sexually based thought or that anger that makes one think of striking out at someone. If we think they are not from God and come strictly from our own origin, thinking even further that those thoughts are only ALLOWED by Him for our choice and are therefore “evil,” and He is not the Originator, THEN our relationship and confidence with God fails and falls; WE ARE STUCK IN ROMANS 7. If we arrive in Romans 8, we see there can be no evil for all is of God. Now at this point it is private in our mind. Now here is the even harder fact and truth, it is not evil when we let it come out toward all that is around us as far as God is concerned, in that it will serve His greater purpose. However, it is at this point that we learn the lessons in hard facts on the ground if we allocate and act without understanding and get burned. One thing for sure . . . one certainly understands much better, after getting burned, now don’t they??? If there be any condemnation in that, and there always is initially if we offend others, this is quickly eliminated knowing it was God in us where we must do better via waiting for His understanding growing in us as we approach THE NEXT TIME, considering our neighbor as we would ourselves and how we would want to be treated. There is no real error, just lack of arrival at the finished product. If one can see things in that light, WE ARE IN ROMANS 8. THERE IS NO CONDEMNATION, BOTTOM LINE, BECAUSE IT IS ALL GOD AND WE LEARN FROM HIM AS TO WHAT HE DID, AND NOT WE OURSELVES, PERCEIVING WHERE WE ARE IN HIS IMAGE AND LIKENESS AS WE GROW ACCORDINGLY.
The Law Fulfilled
Not Discarded as if It No Longer Applies
At this point we want to make it clear that when we have a proper understanding of anything upon which rules have been applied in the past, we do not discard the rules, but rather, we have matured in light of the rules and fulfilled them by a higher education and understanding not CLEARLY stipulated or propounded within the rules themselves. For example, if we approach a blind intersection on a country road with a tall stand of corn or other vegetation on all sides and in all directions, there will be a stop sign posted. In some cases, we will see a four-way-stop so that everyone must stop and look for traffic in all directions. Now as a young driver attentive to rules that we learn in driver’s education or our parents’ instruction etc., we will stop because there is a stop sign. As we mature we come to understand that we must do the same whether or not there is a stop sign posted. Why? It is because this is a blind intersection and for our own protection and others, either in our car or the one that could be approaching, we will stop and look first before continuing across the intersection. However, it is because of the immature driver that will not consider the fact of the blind intersection, that the stop signs are posted. The mature driver does not need the stop sign any longer having arrived at the knowledge and understanding of what to do at a blind intersection. The purposed of the law of stop signs is fulfilled and not discarded.
In like manner, once we know by the revelation of truth that brings us to maturity as Sons of God, that it is God in all things, even our thoughts and those of others around us, we have not discarded the First Great Commandment to “have no other gods before us.” We know it is God in all things and learn by experience as He teaches us; thus, we indeed have no OTHER gods before us by the revelation that it is God that is all and in all. Therefore, we have, by that higher understanding, fulfilled the Law.
A Very Simple Example
Within the concept of higher understanding fulfilling the Law or purpose of the Law, we, as young children, had a rule for which we would be severely disciplined from our parents if we violated it. Later, due to higher enlightenment and maturity, we could apparently violate it without conscience of wrong doing at all. We refer to literal fire and what is colloquially called “handling matches.” It is called in disobedience to our parents “playing with matches.” It is called this, because to a child, it is the fascination with fire that is the draw to us and appeal to use fire and matches, and not the purpose for which “fire and matches” are designed. However, at some point of “maturity,” higher education, and enlightenment, the same act and handling is not considered playing for the wrong reasons, but rather responsible use for which those things are designated for very real needs in our life such as for heat in the winter and for cooking of food. Here again, the Law of “do not handle / play with matches” is fulfilled and not merely discarded as no longer applicable.
One of the Most Practical Experiences
In Light of This Truth that God is All and in All
Once we understand that someone’s attractive spouse, or other sexual interest that comes before our eyes, and our thoughts about them are exactly of God and the thoughts of God in us, we know WE are not thinking or lusting or coveting, IT IS GOD’S THOUGHTS IN US AND PERFECT. Therefore, the Law of Moses - THOU shalt not covet, is fulfilled because it is God in us with those desires and thoughts and NOT WE OURSELVES. We then apply the Second Great Commandment to treat our neighbor as ourselves. The individual is our neighbor’s spouse, or someone with an abundance of needs and concerns that would not be served by our simple sexual desires, and whereas we may picture in our psyche all manners of things, we understand this scenario by higher truth. This is God in us, therefore we handle such hungers and desires privately, by doing what comes natural, to satisfy the need between God in us and God PRIVATELY, the same way we would go to the restroom for other excretory, bodily processes and not defile our neighbors. It all becomes just that practical. We do not act outwardly on those things which are private between God and God in us, but categorize them as the natural attraction and motivations God has put within all men, to be handled properly in full understanding of truth.
Speaking to the Main Issue for Many
This means feeding ourselves to avoid hunger if we are in dietary deficiency. It means relieving ourselves if bodily waste must be ousted. It means we masturbate to satisfy the need our natural hormones have created by arousal. We can put these things out of our mind by thought control and concentration on other matters in all three of these instances and avoid the immediate need for only so long, where we WILL have to satisfy those needs eventually. Therefore, in the case of sexual arousal, we do not act on those immediate desires, but rather respect how we would want our neighbor to so act toward our own spouse, our son or daughter, and of course ourselves with mutual respect. This is mature love of our neighbor and all they possess, applied even as we love ourselves indeed. However, there is of necessity the eventual relief that is required.
A Muddle Mass of Religious Mess until Now
True love toward our fellowman can only be produced by having a clear understanding and how to categorize and handle ourselves with respect to others. This can’t come by any current understanding until this hour. Additionally, it is not simply compassionate or sympathetic feeling. Love is full understanding whereby compassion or sympathy are attributes and not the root itself. Sexual attraction has been possibly the main point that proves religion does not trust God in His creation, but rather accuses men and women of wrong doing to the point that it will not allow the simple formula above stated to relieve such desires. From here we abuse our spouse claiming they should do this or that for us, when they are clearly not in the mood making these things repulsive much like stuffing down more food of a bland nature when we have just eaten. Our spouse may even accuse us when we relieve ourselves without them privately.
It is because of those lording over us in the pulpit that have not the proper knowledge of God and insist they do. They take just such a subject to bring us under condemnation about something that is quite natural; thus, they block us and themselves from God and the proper understanding we could have if we trusted Him in ALL THINGS. From here we are told we must confess sin and “get right with God.” Again, this is the result of the belief of self-determination, freewill, and choice which brings no understanding, but rather constant condemnation, and provides a place for others to take authority over us with all THEIR remedies. The result is that many in observing abstinence under self-condemnation, end up in an extreme such as adultery and fornication, along with lying to the other party to accomplish their end in view, ruining their marriage with deception and deceit to cover their actions from their spouse, when regular relief for quite natural reasons within the understanding that God is in all things, would have prevented this catastrophe. We all state “we should get married for the right reasons;” yet how many countless millions with raging hormones running amuck, end up in a “must-marry” situation due to unwanted children? How many folks would have decided upon another partner for life or entered a better marriage for the “right reasons,” if they were allowed the above-mentioned avenue regularly without condemnation from some Bible know-it-all, with a doctorate in theology, who knows nothing as they should? Being taught and condemned from their youth, humanity only continues to oppress the next generation with the same mentality spiraling out of control as it manifests in unwanted children, bad relationships ending in divorce, as well as extremes of violence such as injury and murder. Condemnation of what God has given for natural release has led to clergy abusing children, and much homosexuality among them due to failure to trust God in all things and learn from Him accordingly.
No, we are not saying this simple release in bodily respect in private will solve all of this problem. What we are saying is that respecting all thoughts and motivation as coming from God, yea indeed being God in us, will yield to the common sense needed in these apparent dilemmas to respect one another according to the Second Great Commandment by fully trusting God according to the First. Operating without deception and without violation of others to fulfill something that could have been eliminated quite naturally to start with, can only be done with full understanding and that full understanding must come by full dependence upon the truth that God controls ALL THINGS.
The Immaturity and Stupidity Fostered by Religion
Is the Way It Was for the Last 6000 Years
However, the Change Will Come with Full Truth
There is only one mature way to see our existence as mankind, whereby we can grow and learn further and that is - God is in us to will and do His good pleasure and knowing that, we then allocate that understanding toward all around us through considering the other as we would want to be considered and treated.
Let us consider another example that is very readily with us, and how the full truth enlightens it accordingly. What about when our neighbor offends us which naturally causes anger? Here once again, God outside of us in our neighbor is the acting party that has brought disdain to God within us. Taking this approach, which is the ACTUAL truth of the matter, we can quell the anger and wait upon God that has ordained the whole situation and learn from Him as what to do and not do to resolve the matter. We will find as all of humanity comes to this mindset and view in the transition before us, as the full truth permeates the earth, . . . violence and deceit which result in crimes, and yes, full blown war, will begin to subside. Why? It is simply because we no longer understand anything as separate from God’s intelligent design and running amuck, although it may certainly give that appearance via our five senses when we first encounter it. It is all God expressed where we then can apply the Second Great Commandment and treat others as we would want to be treated, in order to resolve the matter. These trials and tribulations will exercise and bring patience to wait upon the Source of the situation – God; thus, we will grow in experience and learn accordingly, maturing as God in us manifests in His Sons and Daughters which we are.
Society then can progress in what Michael has dubbed I.C.O.M and acronym for Inherent, Collective, Objective, Morality. When we yield to Sovereignty and denounce self-destiny, there is a natural, inner part of us from God’s creation of mankind that is then allowed to blossom from the seed form which is stifled and killed by the concept of self-determination, freewill, and choice. It is as Jesus said: “the Kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21). We sometime have glimpses of this even under the concept of self-destiny when we have seen something transpire such as hurricane, earthquake, or other natural disaster. People automatically, due to the pervading trauma across the collective psyche in these ordeals, drop their prejudices and open their hearts to that simple fact within us. By creatorial design to extend help and come together for the mutual benefit of everyone in peace and concern, we treat them as we would want to be treated, . . . indeed, have to be treated just to survive when these catastrophes occur.
Socialist Rather Than Capitalist Government
Whereas we all know by that inner voice within each individual, that sharing and a socialistic existence is correct, we cannot apply that if we are under the concept of self-determination, freewill, and choice. We perceive we acquired what we have by the sweat of OUR brow and the more we acquire and believe WE did it, the more selfish we become. When we see all is of God, we become more giving knowing it is God’s bounty to be shared by all. This results in a benefit of attitude where we would be more apt to do more and work harder if we saw others doing the same to benefit the collective rather than themselves. Sharing then becomes a natural thing, and working hard to help others in that it also helps us in the circle of life. Properly understood, the fact that God controls all, becomes the norm and not the uneven balance of surplus and starvation we see from the concept of self-determination and capitalism today. Again, the reason socialist, also called “communist,” governments do not work is because they are exercised by force under self-destiny and not under the mindset of God’s Sovereignty. Brief success with socialism or communism under proper respect for God’s Sovereignty WAS experienced however, when the full truth was residing through the Apostles as we see in the Bible in the Book of Acts. Again, this was short lived due to the false leadership that soon took the forefront and took over entirely once the Apostles died.
Elimination of All Religion
Those at the other end of the spectrum from this publication saying there is no God at all, understood to be atheists, have long correctly pointed out that religion is the main source of division in society, unrest, and war. What they may not realize, . . . it is indeed a form of atheism that is the foundation of all religion. How so? Atheist say there is no God at all. We are the product of random theory where the universe got its start at the “big bang” spontaneously. The rest of life is a proverbial “crap-shoot” and so here we are. Religion says the same thing but only qualifies the “crap-shoot” within the broader parameters which it yields to the existence of God because of the ease to believe such blindly without any further investigation. Now just imagine a God that started everything and did not have a plan how to get to the end, much less leave His creation to wander without answers. Religion supposes to offer those answers for sure, but eliminates investigation and science of discovery except when discovery has been so clearly in the face of religion, such as the sun being the center of the solar system and not the earth, proven just a few centuries ago. Historical record shows that the famous Galileo only narrowly avoided execution by the Catholic Church when trying to advance this proven truth. Atheists are ready to make science their god and, in their opinion, rightly so because within science there is the investigation and search for answers indeed and not just settling for some rendering of life from the Bible or other religious source.
Atheism and Religion Rowing the Same Boat
So how can we say that atheism and religion are in the same boat? Both deny God – atheism totally and religion partially. The concept of self-destiny within religion, as we have made abundantly clear, says God handles the big picture up to a point, and we do the remaining part within the greater parameters outside of God’s intervention.
What will eliminate religion all together and enlighten atheism is Divine Logic. The logic is indeed that God controls everything and not just a part of it, even has given the atheist to believe as he does. When taking this approach, God can then reveal further truth because He is not limited by atheism in full or predominantly by religion in part. Religion is the main enemy and not atheism, because atheism will yield to logic while religion will not, unless it is forced to comply. What usually forces it to comply is enlightenment of science presenting a truth that cannot be further gainsaid or challenged, as we just mentioned. Now if we trust God in all things then science is our friend and aid and a gift from God. If it differs from our interpretation of the Bible for example, in that God is as much in our current belief for the time and His purpose for that hour, is He not also in a change of interpretation mandated by preponderance of evidence for a future hour? This is the truth of the matter.
Truth Marries Truth
There is no contradiction between truth and truth when we see it all comes from the same Source. Trusting that Source as in control of all things eliminates religion entirely. This will be confirmed when the preponderance of the evidence now coming forth in this publication and the manifestation of the end in view of God’s Grand Design in Jerusalem and the Holy Land extends eventually to all the world. From there we will see the marriage of truth and truth, even as we will see the marriage of the Israel of God with the Messiah. Within the Divine Logic of which we speak, we encourage the rereading of the Second Link on this website home page written directly by Michael. It is entitled PHYSICS OF THE UNIVERSE, AN INTRODUCTION TO GOD. There one will see it IS the visible that proves the Intelligent Design within the visible and the invisible. This manifests in what is visible, thus showing it came from the invisible. Both are God for all is God. The concept perceived as “duality or dualism” is also an illusion, where singularity is the order once one makes the link between sensed matter and energy to that which we do not readily sense, but is however energy in its fastest form, even faster than light, known as “thought.” It is from thought to light, thought slowed down, we have the big bang and Genesis 1:1-2, “let there be light.” This is the point where we can enter with our five senses to perceive the eternal existence unperceived prior to that point: God.
Pure and Thoughtful Atheism
Is Ahead of Religious Minds
Some within atheism understand that through determinate cause and effect there is no freewill. If they can add to that, the truth of Intelligent Design which IS manifested in the visible which proves the unseen Force and Thought in all things, then they are not far from the Kingdom of God. All things are the product of that Intelligent Design of Thought and are perceived via our five senses as light, sound, gas, liquid, and solid - all products of thought slowed down to manifest in time and space. In their original form, they are energy which is infinite and cannot be created or destroyed; they can only change form. The very word creation is, in that sense, a misnomer. All things always were and forever shall be, for all is God. Here, speaking scientifically, this publication directly written by Michael the Great Prince, PHYSICS OF THE UNIVERSE, AN INTRODUCTION TO GOD furthers the end in view of this website – Convergence of Man and God or God visible with God invisible.
Maturity as adult Sons of God really comes down to only two commandments which are really one:
· One – God is in all things, does all things and is all things, or stated in reverse we “have no other gods before us.” Nothing is separate or operating on its own.
· Two – treat all things as we would want to be treated. Realizing it is God in us responding to God outside of us, or God in all things, we take His approach to all things esteeming the other person as we would ourselves, and in many cases even better.
So, in that sense it is again just one commandment and that is to perceive all things as of God, and therefore God. Indeed, God is love; the Law is not discarded, but rather fulfilled by a higher understanding provided through the knowledge now given by Messiah through this publication and THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. God is indeed all and in all; therefore, we live our lives in response to Him, and from Him, in application to all around us, which is also HIM.
Short of This Mindset is Death,
Both Spiritually and Physically Realized
As Hate, Murder and War
Now unless we have God’s foundational mindset, the Holy Spirit or God’s view and perspective, whereby we reside with understanding in Romans 8, we will remain as we have for the last 6000 years. We are constantly accusing and excusing ourselves and others within the concept of children, which believe, as if it is actual truth, that everyone is their own entity and therefore guilty of offending what we think is true. From there, those thinking they have arrived when they have not, generate hate, murder and war. They soon believe they do God a service to eradicate the vermin from the earth, which do not acquiesce to their particular point of view, while they try and forget, “red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in HIS sight.” To top it off they have their clergy affirming that “God is on our side,” thus justifying said extermination.
A Romans 8 Believer
The man in Romans 8 HAS arrived at the proper view of God, and therefore has that tool to measure both himself and others, thus growing in the image of God as first declared concerning man in the Book of Genesis: “let us make man in our image and likeness.” He looks to God direct as we would a loving and diligent father desiring our best, and NOT to a standard of rules and regulations, displayed on the wall or tempered by centuries of traditions. Adam started upon true maturity and development, but deviated by Divine Design for this 6000 years record . . . again, now indelibly showing what it would be like if God was not All and in all, and withheld that truth and full foundation, whereupon His creation is established in the blessing soon released upon mankind with that knowledge. It starts with God Did It, and ends with God Did It. In between, we, as a part of His human expression, his Sons, learn and grow, realizing it is God’s work entirely. There is no end to that learning, even as we close our eyes in physical death for the last time - for of Him and through Him and returning to Him are all things.
There is therefore (based upon proper understanding which fulfills the Law) now (the point at which one is brought by God to this understanding) no condemnation (no sin or guilt due to the fact it is God in us acting and not we ourselves) to them which are in Christ Jesus (those in the anointing or understanding and same mindset and view that Jesus also had), who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (who no longer operate and live their natural life in an understanding that they are doing anything, but operate in the mindset and understanding it is God in them to will and do His good pleasure, and thus grow and learn from Him in all things, applying the same in respect or love of one’s neighbor, extending to all creation, as one would want to be also respected and loved).
Previous Times . . . Previous Understandings
The Key Is . . . “PREVIOUS”!!!
We do not apologize for this lengthy, and probably the most eye-opening, in a practical way, presentation. It is given in hopes of bringing many to understand that the other ways of seeing and observing God and the relationship with man has been in progression through time to this point of FULL, simple disclosure. Those understandings of previous eras or times in history were exactly for those times AND NOT FOR NOW. This is no different than the shortsighted view of the world as being flat, removed by our current knowledge. However, the transition introduced by the voyage of Christopher Columbus and the fact that he did not fall off the earth into oblivion, took time to be understood, proven out, and become fact on the ground. It is time for that transition to move forward in the relationship between God and man in order to see ourselves as God’s children developing into Sons. We can no longer remain under those understandings that “daddy or mommy are going to spank us when they get home, if we do not do thus and so.” Did not, in actuality, they love us and treated us according to our ability to learn in hopes of our arriving to adult status? Yes, surely, they did, although their efforts might have been perceived as pitifully lame at the time, all things considered. How much more so, yet in perfection, as to the development from childhood of the whole human race approaching maturity as God’s Sons in this due time and hour! We may have had an opinion that God is “out to get us” with our needing a covering of animal skins as did Adam and Eve, later a blood sacrifice under the Law of Moses, with the supreme one being the blood of Christ and his advocacy for us under the Age of Grace. Added to that is all the hoopla of superstition, taught as fact as a motivating factor, about an unseen after-existence when we physically die, nowhere taught in the Law and the Prophets, but privately interpreted out of the New Testament. Getting down to the nitty gritty, so to speak . . . IN TRUTH . . . all of that was perfect in the Mind of the Creator and was needed FOR THE TIME, level of development, and apportioned knowledge He granted civilization. That is over, and it is time to move on with higher enlightenment even as first glimpsed, previewed, and witnessed in Jesus Christ and the Apostles in the First Resurrection, PROPERLY UNDERSTOOD FROM THIS PRESENTATION. What THEY had, is NOW released to the world in this day of instant messaging via the airwaves and the internet, mid-heaven as it were, bringing the Second Resurrection in THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. The High Priest has come out of the Holy of Holies, sin is removed and full salvation is here. Again, we encourage a thorough reading of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL in the concise message given by Michael directly as the beginning and end to this extensive and detailed publication. Additionally, as far as a scientific approach, we encourage Michael’s treatise that is also on the first page of this website: PHYSICS OF THE UNIVERSE, AN INTRODUCTION TO GOD. Both of these documents are especially enjoyed and come home to one’s inner being AFTER reading this in-depth publication BABYLON HAS FALLEN. The purpose here with this presentation has been to proverbially “take-out-the-trash” of previous views and concepts of basically religion. This leaves the room of the heart and mind ready to move on with God directly with no more need of religion, church, synagogue, mosque, and their plethora of ever-learning but never able to arrive to the truth upon the foundation to properly begin any real education – the Sovereignty of God.
We will now, in our next Sections, return to Daniel 11 and 12 and address the events that mark the End Time and give a full account as a witness to the visit of Messiah in Jerusalem and the Holy Land in the fall of 1987. This will show the fulfillment of the fall Holy Days not fulfilled by Messiah’s First Coming. We will give the significance of the 1290 and 1335 days of the 2300-day countdown and bring other scriptures to bear that will lead us to the Book of Revelation for the final showdown of what is perceived as good and evil, as it has been occurring within the perception of self-determination since fall of 1987. This will bring us to the declaration of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, where all these Sections addressing Daniel and Revelation show the history, timing, the how and the wherefore, whereby it all came about.
