As the seals of Revelation are opened, the truth flows to God's revealers. They in turn release it into the minds and hearts of the fivefold ministers who then feed this knowledge to God's sheep.
5 But one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David(Jesus), has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals."
In other words, the fivefold ministers will lead God's people to victory over this world and its ruler through the Wisdom they receive from the revealers.
Another way of saying it is: truth containing the Wisdom of God will well up or spring up from the fountain head, Christ our King and High Priest. He will pour this Wisdom through the revealer and into the fountain, the fivefold, who will in turn release it on down the mountain to the streets of New Jerusalem, body members, to give living water to the nations as they come to eat from the tree of life.
1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne ofGodand ofthe Lamb.
2 In the middle of its street(New Jerusalem), and on either side of the river, was the tree of life(omnipresent Jesus), which bore twelve fruits(12 is the number of government), each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
There is a fountain of knowledge that flows from the house on the top of Mt. Zion that we studied in Part One of this series.
18 And it will come to pass in that day that the mountains shall drip with new wine(the blood of the new covenant), the hills shall flow with milk (foundation knowledge), and all the brooks of Judah(Judah means praise, water is symbolic of the Word and the Wisdom contained therein) shall be flooded with water(Wisdom released through Prophetic Praise); a fountain shall flowfromthe house of the LORD(through the revealers to the fivefold) and water the Valley of Acacias.
The valley of Shittim, or Acacias is a very dry valley, like the valley of dry bones in Ezekiel 37. The anointing on Wisdom from the Tree of Life will awaken the dead church to stand to its feet as prophesied in Daniel 12 and Revelation 11:11.
If we want victory over the black mountain that we taught about in part one of this series, a mountain where the Beast and Babylon mentioned in Revelation now have full sway, then we must shout grace, grace to the capstone. The Capstone is Wisdom. In other words, if we want to see the new heaven and new earth appear and the Kingdom of God reign on earth we must embrace the Wisdom that the Lord is sharing with His church to be overcomers and the church victorious. We cannot continue eating the fruit of the knowledge of the Tree of Good and Evil and be functioning through our intellect that has been nourished by that evil fruit and see victory. The carnal religious intellectuals, without knowing it, are fulfilling Satan's desires for the church. This evil knowledge is in fact the foundation of the whole world and its systems that are crumbling around us.
You see, knowledge from the Tree of Good and Evil is a complete counterfeit of God's Capstone. It is depicted on the United States dollar bill! There it represents the lie that we can be like God and dictate our own destiny as taught by the false prophet of Revelation (the counterfeit prophetic revealer), who feeds black mountain's church leaders in the world's religious systems along with the heads of governments that back it. This evil capstone's mission is to level society, bring about one world religion and be the banking system for the world, through a one world government and has the audacity to say "In God we trust". We know the god of this world is Satan! All is counterfeit of the Kingdom of God.
So let us begin to close our eyes to the world and its ruler, and our ears to the world's intellect, and feast on Wisdom from the Tree of Life. Let us eat of this Tree only, obeying the voice of the Lord as spoken from the very beginning concerning the Tree of Good and Evil.
3 but of the fruit(lies) of the tree(good and evil) which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, 'You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
Unlike Eve, let us make the correct choice of fruit. Let us choose the fruit of the Tree of Life, Wisdom. It is our only hope for man to go full circle back to God's original order of things when He said, "it is good".
For a better understanding of Wisdom let us read Proverbs 1:20-33.
20 Wisdom calls aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares. (Where the dead church lies.)
21 She cries out in the chief concourses, at the openings of the gates in the city(Babylon) she speaks her words (to call our Zerubabbel)
22 " How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity? For scornersdelight in their scorning(they love to wrongly accuse those that walk in truth), and fools hate knowledge. (Wisdom produces a knowledge that demands change from the ways of intellect.)
23 Turn at my rebuke(don't be afraid of change); surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. (Our understanding will be opened if we are obedient. If not...?)
24 Because I have called and you refused, I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded, (wouldn't hear through the prophetic voice or God's Trumpet)
25 Because you disdained all my counsel, and would have none of my rebuke, (unteachable)
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm, and your destruction comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.
28 " Then they will call on me, but I will not answer(it will be too late); they will seek me diligently, but they will not find me. (the spiritually deaf and blind cannot see Wisdom or hear truth. How did they get that way?)
29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the LORD,
30 They would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way(lies from the Tree of good and evil), and be filled to the full with their own fancies(their intellect)
32 For the turning away of the simple(those involved with worldly ventures) will slay them(they will lack Kingdom principles and revert to Adamic ways), and the complacency of fools will destroy them; (the Tree of Good and Evil that comes to kill, steal and destroy gets its way!)
33 But whoever listens to me(Wisdom) will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil."
Proverbs 3:18-19 answers us:
18 She (Wisdom) is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are all who retain her. (Now, look at this next scripture)
19 The LORDby Wisdomfounded the earth; by understandingHe established the heavens;
Is this not exactly what we want to happen again?
2 Peter 3:13
13 Nevertheless we,according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
Revelation 21:1-7 describes this event also.
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem(the Bride of Christ), coming down out of heaven from God (selected and chosen by God), prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. (Jesus)
3 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. (Christ in us the hope of glory)
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away."
5 Then He who sat on the thronesaid, "Behold, I make all things new(once again through Wisdom)" And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful."
6 And He said to me, "It is done(it was all completed on the cross)! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life(God's Wisdom) freely to him who thirsts. (So they can overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word, with the Wisdom it contains, that their testimony is shaped from)
7 He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and heshall beMy son.
All these promises, by our choosing to accept Wisdom, the Capstone, are ours! Remember the definition of the capstone in Zechariah in the Strongs Concordance is number 7222 in the Hebrew Dictionary? It is feminine of 7218 which is: head, the beginning (of a new time), principal ruler, top. As we walk in Wisdom, a new culture, a new Kingdom is birthed through us and a new refurbished earth soon will appear. The original earth was founded by the Lord through Wisdom and "it was good" God said. Mankind unfortunately let Satan ruin it through beguiling our original parents into choosing his intellect. But, by us renouncing the knowledge of the Tree of Good and Evil and choosing Wisdom, all can be restored. Is this promised renewal not good reason to shout grace, grace to the Capstone, or favor, favor to Wisdom from the Tree of Life. Again, let us read from Proverbs 3:19.
19 The LORDby wisdomfounded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens;
The Bride of Christ overcomes the world through choosing Wisdom, and the Body of Christ functions victoriously on earth executing God's predestined plans through the understanding that comes from walking in Wisdom. Because of walking in Wisdom, they are united, have the same vision and become one in His approval, His love, and love conquers all things. Through Wisdom, God's ways become our ways. So let us ask ourselves, do we as individual members of the Body of Christ, the Last Adam and His Bride, choose the fruit of the Tree of Life, or like Adam and Eve, do we choose the fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil? Which Capstone do we shout grace, grace, to?
