8 Again, the devil took Him (Jesus) up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world (all of man's systems) and their glory. (All the collected wealth and pleasures the world has to offer.)
9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” (He is singing that same old song to man today!)
Side note: Did you know that the word translated as tree
could have just as easily been translated as carpenter? To know that definition is helpful as we see Satan cannot create anything
, he can only build from what God has already brought into existence. He can construct, not create. For those that enjoy studying, the number for tree is 6086 in the Strongs Hebrew dictionary. The number for carpenter is 2796 and says its the same as the number 6086. The other definitions for carpenter by the way are, master craftsman, mason, engraver, and fabricator. However we translate it, or which definition we choose to use, the point was, don't touch him, don't let him give you food for thought
. Don't let your mind feed on the fruit of his intellect. To do so caused Adam and Eve to break the law of God
, warped their thinking
, ruined their relationship with Father and put them outside the Kingdom
, making them law-less
. Seeing man's fallen state and defenselessness, other angels following Satan's example took advantage of mankind also
. Although created a totally different species, these angels fathered children through the daughters of man
! The resulting fruit of this union, were half angel, half man creatures
that were evil, hard and cruel, giants in stature
and in Satan's mind superior in quality to Adam and Eve.
3 Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men (these women were not holy, they were descendants of Eve nor were they of their species) and taken to yourselves wives, and done like children of earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons.
Genesis 6:2 says it this way.
2 that the sons of God (angels) saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
8 And now the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon the earth, and on their earth shall be their dwelling.
9 Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men, and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin; they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. (They are not of God!)
[10 As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.] (Destroys the theory that we live in a city up in heaven in the end!)
11 And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless hunger and thirst, and cause offenses (They live through mankind! They need our bodies to function here on earth. They are spirits).
12 And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them (they will especially attack women).
Understanding these spirits exist
and the nature of them helps us to understand the evil events happening
around the world. Stories of people randomly killing strangers in mass murders grace the headlines of our newspapers. Children killing parents, parents killing children, children killing schoolmates are demonstrations of how an evil spirit can cause its human to carry out Satan's plan
to rid the earth of the human species. Many times the killer takes his own life as well! The evil spirit or spirits that caused this atrocity simply look for another human to live through, sadly leaving a trail of death behind.
Unfortunately as surely as man interacted with the fallen angels
before the flood, there are some deliberately interacting today with their offspring! What do we think we are doing when we seek counsel or wisdom from a fortune teller or psychic
? Ouija boards, tarot cards, séances etc. are all a part of the dark side
of the supernatural, Satan's domain! There are actually so called intelligent people that knowingly seek direction from these spirit guides
! Many are in high places of government and places of leadership
! The evil ones may even choose to prosper them
as Satan would have Jesus, but at what cost? Looking to an evil spirit for advice is the same exact thing Eve did! A huge, huge mistake! Mankind not only lost their intimate relationship with God because their spirit died
, but as stated before, ownership and dominion of the earth! Man gave away all God's promises! Our nature changed, we entered time and lost our immortality
. Man became his own worst enemy starting with Cain, the firstborn of Adam and Eve, who killed his innocent brother. Satan probably saw to that murder personally. He would much prefer the likes of Cain to populate the earth. God however according to His plan gave Eve another son named Seth to add to the human family so one day He could reclaim a remnant of humanity
that would once again be His. Through the line of Seth, Noah was born thus saving us from extinction
! Through the bloodlines of Noah's son Shem, Abraham was born whose seed once more saved man
from extinction. Then through the bloodlines of Abraham's son Isaac Christ was born, and through Christ, we too become the seed of Abraham
thus again saving us from extinction!
27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
Psalm 102:18 shows us this new creation.
18 This will be written for the generation to come (hadn't been created yet), that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord.
4 Now I say that the heir, as long as he is a child, does not differ at all from a slave, though he is master of all,
Proof again is found in Ephesians 4:13.
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; (The promises were not made to the seeds of Abraham as of many, but to one, the Seed of Abraham, Christ!)
II Thessalonians 2:10-12
10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved (this is the second chance the born again are given).
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, (you won't die, once saved always saved, you're just going to rapture out of here anyway, lies, all lies!)
12 that they all may be condemned (or damned) who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness (went on with their former knowledge and worldly life after baptism).
12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword (the Sword is God's truth, His knowledge, the Word!), piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Revelation 19:12-13, 15
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword (God's Sword, His knowledge), that with it He should strike the nations (with truth that will dispel the lies of Satan). And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron (through His government). He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
He became a Spirit again that returned to enter man at the Feast of Pentecost to be shaped into a Body that will bring restoration to all creation, returning its ownership to the Father.
So who are those
that make up His Body and what is required of them? Those walking in the message released for yesterday
are sure not it! Although it may have been truth that was needed for the past age of the church
to move forward towards restoration, much more has been recently released and the old church is so very far behind. He has a plan
for a new heaven and earth
and to be a part of it we must be willing to eat fresh manna
and allow the adjustments in our lives that truth will bring about. We have to be willing to chang
e to remain a part of His Body. Those walking according to false doctrines and the traditions of man
are obviously not a part. The evil ones would try to convince us “everyone that knows the Lord is a part of His Body”, but not so. He is Jehovah Rohe, the great shepherd through His Body
and there are the sheep that follow, some of which He will shed off. His Body consists of office holders as His head, His government
, through whom comes direction for the establishing of His Kingdom
and dedicated devotion to the protection and growth
of the sheep. He also physically functions in all areas of life through the rest of His body members to set the example for others
to follow in preparation to build the new heaven and earth
. They too are set aside from the world
however. They, like the head, do their best to walk in faith and love, united in purpose
, not allowing the enemy to come in through petty arguments or echoing the voice of the accuser of the brethren
. Above all they walk in repentance
where they fail and trust the blood of the Lamb
for forgiveness. His Body is the house or tabernacle of the greater David
that is, Jesus. Isaiah prophesied:
6 For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder (the head). And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this (through His body).
Acts 2:29-30 says:
29 “Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.
30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne,
Acts 15:16-18 was written after Jesus ascended to the Father.
16 ‘After this I will return (a second time) and will rebuild the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down (the early church failed, Christianity became a part of Babylon); I will rebuild its ruins (from living stones), and I will set it up; (He is the corner stone.)
17 So that the rest of mankind (those different from the body) may seek the Lord (for direction), even all the Gentiles who are called by My name, says the Lord who does all these things.’ (the flock, God's sheep, children of God)
18 “Known to God from eternity are all His works (God had a plan all along).
7 The cow and the bear shall graze; their young ones shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
8 The nursing child shall play by the cobra’s hole, and the weaned child shall put his hand in the viper’s den. (Restoration of all creation!)
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain (Zion, spiritual home of the greater David), for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
This evil mountain is built from black living stones
, ones who turned their backs on truth, did not develop a taste for the knowledge of God, ones chosen and etched into Satan's house
, his body by evil spirits. Many of these black stones were called of God, but not chosen for they were found unfaithful. The mountain unfortunately is exceedingly high, remember the scripture we opened this blast with? Its name is Mt Seir, its stones are Esau's
who give up their new birthright
bestowed on them at baptism for the world's food, Satan's knowledge. The city, Babylon is made of complacent stones, ones satisfied with moldy bread
and yesterday's message. Pew sitters in a lukewarm or dead state
, that hope to pay their way to Paradise through tithes and gifts, ones that grace her huge edifice as her little “give me that old time religion” groups. She harbors hypocrites, extortioners, the sexually immoral along with the world's secret religions
that back her secret societies. In fact, in her are all the world's abominations
and attached to her are all the world's systems belonging to Satan
I Peter 2:5
5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth (better translated world) had passed away. Also there was no more sea.
2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband (designed in heaven, perfected from heaven, created on and for earth).
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. (So God protects this City!)
Isaiah 11:9 prophesies God's victory.
9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all My holy mountain, for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. (God's Word protects this mountain!)
Revelation 18:21 shows us the demise of Satan's city.
21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not
be found anymore
2 “Son of man, set your face against Mount Seir and prophesy against it,
3 and say to it, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, O Mount Seir, I am against you; I will stretch out My hand against you, and make you most desolate;
4 I shall lay your cities waste, and you shall be desolate. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.
