SEE THE CHURCH DIVIDED FALL. SEE HOW GREAT THE FALL IS TO BE; FOR THE CHURCH DIVIDED IS THE CHURCH THAT IS DIVIDED FROM ME.

 

Matthew 12:25 “And Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every house divided against itself shall not stand”.

 

II Timothy 2:19-21 “Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure having this seal, The Lord knows them that are his (Gal.5:24). And let everyone that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor (wise) and some to dishonor (foolish).

 

Matthew 7:21-27 Jesus said, “Not everyone that says to me, “Lord, Lord”, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, “Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? And in your name have cast out devils? And in your name done many wonderful works (the vessels of dishonor)?” And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me you that work iniquity. Therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man (vessel of honor), which built his house upon a rock; and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not because it was founded upon a rock. And everyone that hears these sayings of mine and does not do them shall be likened unto a foolish man (vessel of dishonor), which built his house upon the sand; and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”

 

Matthew 25:1-2 “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise (the vessels of honor), and five were foolish (the vessels of dishonor).”

 

Luke 6:46 Jesus said, “Why do you call me Lord and do not do the things I say to do?”

 

Matthew 22:36-40 “Master, which is the great commandment in the law?” Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment; and there is a second like unto it, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

 

I Corinthians 3:1 “And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto you were not able to bear it, neither yet now are you able. You are still carnal because there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions are you not carnal, and walk as men?”

 

James 3:14-16 “But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not; and do not lie against the truth. This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish; for where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

 

VISION: WATCH OUT FOR THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTI-ELBOW!

 

I was praying and asking the Lord if he would answer some of the questions that I had, as well as some of the questions that I have been asked concerning the last word the Lord gave to me entitled: “It all begins in Lakeland”. [Lakeland – 7 Seals – The Revelation of Jesus Christhttp://www.etpv.org/2008/ll7trojc.html] I have received some really sincere e-mails from brethren that have agreed that the last word was from the Lord, but they, along with me, either still have some major issues with some of the things that were taught by Todd Bentley and some of the other prophets, or evangelists, or apostles that he brought into the move in Lakeland, as well as what has happened to Todd since. This now is the vision and the interpretation that the Lord gave to me that has at the very least, answered the questions that I had.

 

In this vision, I saw the form of a human body that was standing in an upright position, with its arms slightly bent at the elbow so as to allow both hands to rest on its waist. At first I thought that I was seeing some kind of mannequin because it did not appear to have any gender or any distinctive figures such as hair, or a mouth, or nose, or eyes, etc. While I was observing this figure from a distance, I began to hear what sounded like buzzing noises coming from this body. So I walked closer to see what it was that might be causing these noises. As I drew near I was startled at what I saw located at every joint of the body, as well as at the eyes, the ears, the hands, and the feet; for in each of these locations I saw a tiny little church that greatly resembled the little one room churches that I have seen scattered throughout the countryside here in the southeastern part of the U.S. Where each eye and each ear was supposed to be on this body, there was one of these tiny churches; and where each foot and hand was supposed to be, there were these tiny little churches; and where each joint in the body was supposed to be, there was one of these tiny little churches.

 

I then drew even closer to further examine these little churches, and when I did I saw that each of these little churches had 3 or 4 windows on each of its sides. I then observed at least two or three people hanging out of each window, as well as several people hanging out of the front door. It was then that I was able to determine where all of the buzzing was coming from; for all of these people that hanging out of these windows and doors were all fussing, and arguing, and pointing their fingers towards the churches that were located at the other parts or joints located throughout the rest of the body. Not only did all of these church buildings look alike, but so also were all of their church members acting alike towards the members of the other churches. As I listened, I could clearly hear what all this fussing was made of and why they were pointing their fingers at each other; for all their words were filled with accusations, or gossip, or complaints, or fault finding, or blame, or comparing one against another, or jealousy, or nit-picking, or hatred, or talking behind their backs, or condemnations, or looking down their noses at the others, or arguments, or envy, or judging one another, or contentions. What was also clear to see by the countenances on their faces was that each member of the body that was accusing the other members and joints of the body, completely believed that he or she was right and just in that which he was fussing and pointing the finger at other members of the body for. It was not hard to see or discern the coldness, the anger, the hardness, and the contempt that each one of these members had towards the others.

 

As I listened, I began to distinctly hear one voice becoming clearer than the others; and it began to rise above all of the other fussing voices. It was the voice whereby one joint or one member of the body was accusing another joint or member of having the spirit of antichrist in them. But instead of accusing each other by saying the word antichrist, they were saying it in the following manner. The church that was located at one of the elbows was pointing its finger and accusing another church that was located at one of the hips saying, “You are not like us; therefore you are possessed with the spirit of the anti-elbow”. I then heard one of the churches located at the foot saying to one of the churches at the knee, “Your purpose is not at all like our purpose; you are possessed with the spirit of the anti-foot”. Then I heard one of the churches located at the eye fussing with one of the ears saying, “You do not see as we see; you are blinded by the spirit of the anti-eye.” And so it was with all of the other joints and body members, accusing the other joints and members of the body with a continual fussing of, “You are possessed with the spirit of the anti-ear”, or, “You are possessed with the spirit of the anti-hand”; or, “You are possessed with the spirit of the anti-hip”.

 

Luke 9:49-50 And John answered and said, “Master, we saw one casting out demons in your name; and we forbid him to do so because he follows not with us.” And Jesus said to him, “Do not forbid him because he that is not against us is for us.”

 

1 Corinthians 12:7-20 “The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit all. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another various kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: but all of these work by the one and same Spirit, distributing to every man individually as he wills. For as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of that one body being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have all been made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, “Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body”; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, “Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body”; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, then where would the hearing be? If the whole were the hearing, then where would the smelling be? But now has God set the members, every one of them, in the body as it has pleased him. And if they were all only one member, then where would the body be? But now they are many members, yet but one body.”

 

I Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment…13 Is Christ divided?”

 

The Lord then brought into my remembrance of that which he had once asked, “Mitt, what function does the foot perform that the eye also performs?” I answered, “None, Lord”. The Lord then said, “So then, why does the eye judge the foot according to the functions and abilities of the eye; or, why does the elbow compare the hip according to the functions and abilities of the elbow; or, why does the knee measure the functions of the ear against the functions and abilities of the ear? Have not I called you and made each one of you to be different members of my body, equipping each of you with different gifts, functions, and abilities? Have I given these blessings to my people so as to bring division and separation in my body? I think not! All those who judge and compare the other joints and members according to their own gifts, their own functions, and their own abilities have not removed the beam of self-righteousness from their eyes. They are blind and their own pride has deceived them. These are they who think that the whole body of Christ, with all of its gifts, and functions, and abilities are contained in their own member of the body. Is the whole body just a foot or is just an eye? These are they who also lust to judge the others according to themselves, and not according to Christ himself. If a man, who I have set to be eye, or to be foot, or to be hand, thinks within himself that he understands and knows me because of the gifts, and the functions, and the abilities that have given to him, he is deceived of himself and rejects me. He rejects me because when he rejects the other members and joints of the body that I have also anointed with different gifts, and functions, and abilities. I am the head of all of the members of my body, and when one rejects the other members, he rejects me because I am he who gave the other parts of my body their gifts, their functions, and their abilities. Though the hand is of me, it is not me; and though the eye is of me, it is not me; and though the hip is of me; it is not me; for though all of the joints and members are of me because I am the whole body. He who is deceived of himself does not know me.

 

Obadiah 3-4 “The pride of your heart has deceived you; you that dwell in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high, that says in his heart, “Who shall bring me down to the ground?” Though you exalt yourself as the eagle, and though you set your nest among the stars, there will I bring you down”, says the Lord.

 

Jeremiah 9:4-9 “Take you heed every one of his neighbor, and trust you not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant (judging others according to the righteousness of their own gifts and abilities) and every neighbor will walk with slanders (fault-finders; accusers). And they will deceive every one his neighbor and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies and they weary themselves to commit iniquity (the works of being lord and god over their own Christianity). Your habitation is in the midst of deceit, and through deceit they refuse to know me”, says the Lord. “Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts, “Behold, I will melt them and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people? Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaks deceit: one speaks peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he lays his wait.

Shall I not visit them for these things?” says the Lord. “Shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?

 

I Corinthians 3:1-3 “And I brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for until this time you have not be able to receive it, and still you are not able; for you are still carnal because there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions. Are you not carnal and walk as men?”

 

Romans 12:4-10 “For as we have many members in one body, and all members do not have the same office, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another. Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith; or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teaches, on teaching; or he that exhorts, on exhortation: he that gives, let him do it with simplicity; he that rules, with diligence; he that shows mercy with cheerfulness. Let love be without hypocrisy (play-acting). Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectionate towards one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another.”

 

I Corinthians 1:10 “Now I beseech you brethren by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

 

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus beheld them and said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

 

When I first saw these people hanging out of the windows and doors pointing their fingers and fussing with each other, I laughed; and I laughed even more when I heard the words of their accusations that said, “You are not like me; you have the spirit of the anti-elbow”. I laughed because it just seemed like a bunch of spoiled little kids playing, and then fighting over nothing. But then the Spirit of the Lord reminded me that all such strife, and arguments, and the pointing of the finger, and the accusations that were coming forth were only doing do because the wisdom of this world ruled over their minds; the same wisdom that is of the Devil.

 

James 3:14-16 “But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not; and do not lie against the truth. This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish; for where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

 

DEVIL: accuser, fault-finder, slanderer

 

Revelation 12:9, 10 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world. He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, he who accused them before our God day and night.”

 

John 8:44 “You are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do (accuse, point the finger, find fault with: see John 8:3-12) He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie (his accusations), he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

 

1 John 3:15 “Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.”

 

Then the Lord said, “Be as gentle as doves but as wise as serpents; for when Satan/Devil attacks my church, he tempts them with words that bring forth arguments and strife that in turn bring division and separation among the members of the body. There is great reason why Satan/Devil attacks the body for this purpose and that is because he knows that when the body of Christ finally comes together in the unity of my love, then all of the powers of Satan are going to be completely broken; and all of the kingdoms of this world are going to become the kingdoms of our God. It is for this reason that my church has his complete attention, to keep divisions and strife alive. Satan equips his prophets and ministers with the lies that allow for his ministers and prophets to take control over the members of my body that are deceived by his seducing and enticing lies. Once his ministers and prophets become the head, they then work to keep control over the flock with false doctrines, with the commandments of men that put heavy burdens upon the shoulders of my people, and with all manner of fears. These are they who will use blame, slander, accusations, fault finding, condemnation, the pointing of the finger, intimidation, the judging according to appearances, false prophesies, and hypocrisy to keep control over the flock with their lies. These are also the same tactics and lying words that they use to keep their flocks divided and separated from the rest of the body. They compare and judge others according to those things that seem right in their own eyes; and they think evil of those who do not measure up those things which are right in their own eyes. They esteem, and honor, and think, and love only themselves, and they that are like unto them. They mock and scorn at my commandment to love one another.

 

Matthew 10:16-20 “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: therefore you be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues, and you shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what you shall speak; for it shall be given to you in that same hour what you shall speak; for it is not you that speaks, but the Spirit of your Father which speaks in you.”

 

Acts 20:28-31 “Take heed therefore to yourselves and to all the flock, over which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to feed the church of God which he has purchased with his own blood.

For I know this, that after my departing, the grievous wolves shall enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your ownselves shall men arise, speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them (that which allows them to be the head, or in control). Therefore watch and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn everyone of you night and day with tears.”

 

Isaiah 30:9 -13 “This is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord (love fulfills the law): which say to the seers, “See not”; and to the prophets, “ Do not prophesy to us right things, but speak to us smooth words; prophesy deceits. Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path and cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.” Wherefore, thus says the Holy One of Israel, “Because you despise this word and trust in oppression and perverseness, and rely on them, therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.”

 

Jeremiah 5:30-31 “An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land: The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule by their own power, and my people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end?”

 

Many will come in my name saying that they are Christians, and those who do not know me as well as those who think that I am like unto them; but you shall know them by their fruits. The fruits of hatred are clearly seen in those members of the body who find fault with others, who judge, who accuse, who point the finger, who slander, who blame, and in those who condemn others without any mercy or compassion for their weaknesses, or their faults, or their sins, or for their mistakes. These desire that you only believe as they believe, and they use lies, judgment, threats, hypocrisy, intimidation, deceit, accusations, and finger pointing to subdue and overcome the flock. The fruits of love are seen in care, in mercy, in forbearance, in edification, in giving, in patience, in encouragement, in truth, and in forgiveness towards one another, especially during the times when the weaknesses, the faults, the sins, and the mistakes of their brethren are brought into the light.

 

Matthew 12:33-37 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can you, being evil, speak good things; for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks? A good man out of the good treasure of the heart brings forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that every idle word that men shall speak they shall give account thereof in the Day of Judgment; for by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned.”

 

Romans 16:17-18 “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine (love is the commandment) which you have learned; and avoid them; for they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own desires; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”

 

Only love is able to unify my body; the unification that Father finds very pleasing. But as long as the members of the body hold on to the righteousness of their own judgments, and use them to fuss and point the finger at others, then it shall not be possible for any of the fruits of the love of God to come forth in them. By the righteousness of man’s own judgments will each man walk in the way that seems right in his own eyes; and when each man walks in the way that is right in his own eyes, he then judges and compares all others according to the way he sees. How can two walk together in unity if they do not agree on how they see things? All walk after their own righteousness have no unity or love for the other members of the body, and Christ has no where to lay his head. The world will not know any of these to be my disciples because they will not see any love among the members of his body; for they will only see the slander, the fault-finding, the accusations, and the pointing of the finger that the rest of the inhabitants of this fallen world walk after. So then, the house that continues to be divided against itself shall not be able to stand in the judgment that is now coming; for all are going to be judged according to the love that you have been commanded to walk in. The hand is not going to be judged by the functions and abilities of the eye; and neither is the eye going to be judged according to the functions and abilities of the foot; and neither is the foot going to be judged according to the functions and abilities of the ear, but according to the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. There will be no reason or excuse to be found that will have any power to justify one for not loving and forgiving his brother; for reasons and excuses are the righteousness that the willfully disobedient lean on to justify themselves.”

 

*Side note: For 29 years I have daily sought after Father’s heart so that I might know him so that I might know of the divine nature that he desires to change me into. He has revealed much to me concerning the things in his heart, as well as things in my heart that I did know. Yet, in all these things, the Lord has never revealed anything to me that he hates more than the reasons and excuses that men use to justify themselves. Just look at how Jesus responded when he spoke and said follow me, and how each began to reason and make excuse as to why they could not. Reasons and excuses are nothing but an illusion of lies that are used to make the words of God to be nothing.

 

John 13:34-35 Jesus said, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another as I have loved you. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one to another.”

 

Matthew 6:12 “And forgive us our sins, as (in the same manner) as we forgive those who sin against us.”

 

I then immediately quit laughing and my heart filled with grief, knowing that the Devil, the accuser of the brethren, was the architect behind all of these accusations, and fussing, and finger pointing that I saw one member of the body coming against another member of the body. In all my years of seeking after the Lord, the most common question that I hear coming from the saints is, “Why are we not walking in the power and the love that Jesus Christ said that we should walk in?”. The simple answer is because we are a house divided; and we each have been holding strong on to our own righteousness; and when we see a gifting or a function of the body that is not like unto own, then we ourselves over to evil suspicions rather than to seeking the Lord and asking him if this one of those members that is not like unto ours. What, is it not like over 1600 different Christian sects or denominations, and every one is supremely confident that the manner that they worship the Lord is the right manner that God wants to be worshipped; but in truth, which there is only one of, they are only worshipping that which seems right in their own eyes; the righteousness that comes forth from their own judgments.

 

Proverbs 12:17 “He that speaks truth shows forth righteousness but a false witness deceit.”

 

Jesus said that we should love, that we should forgive, that we should be one, and that we should even esteem one another’s lives above our own; and he also warned us that the Devil would come to tempt us to judge and accuse one another, just as the grievous wolves tempted Jesus to do as they would do, to judge and accuse the woman caught in the act of adultery. Are we not all tempted when we are enticed to believe other counsels other than that which Jesus instructed us to follow after? Many of those who the Lord has called will forget the words of our Lord Jesus Christ so they may follow after the lying words of their false prophets and false teachers; thinking within themselves that it is more righteous to find fault, to judge, to accuse, to point the finger at, and to condemn others rather than to love and to forgive one another. We are in the midst of the “falling away”; and it is the instruction of the words of our Lord Jesus Christ that Christians fall from. Many of those who the Lord has called have chosen rather to esteem, to honor, and to believe these lying counsels of the Devil rather than to regard the truth concerning the love of God that is in Jesus Christ towards our brethren. You will never find the true love of God among those who fuss and point their fingers at their brethren.

 

John 8: 10-12 “When Jesus had lifted himself up and saw no one but the woman, he said to her, “Woman, where are your accusers? Has no man condemned you?” She said, “No man, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.” Then Jesus said to them, “I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.”

 

John 10:2-5 “He that enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep; and to him the porter opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. And when he puts forth his own sheep he goes before them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.”

 

Matthew 22:14 “Many are called but only a few are chosen.”

 

II Peter 2:1-3 “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways (judging and accusing others that only brings condemnation & destruction on their own selves) because of whom the way of truth (love) will be blasphemed.”

 

Jesus did not accuse any because the desire to accuse only comes forth from those who walk in darkness; those who are led by the spirit of antichrist to accuse, to blame, to find fault with, to point the finger at, and to judge others for their sins, their faults, and their weaknesses. It is through these lying words of the Devil joined together in agreement with the carnal wisdom that keeps the church destroying and killing each other with words that kill and destroy. Just let one of us translate one scripture wrong, or fall in a moment of weakness, or say the wrong thing, or not have an agreement in doctrine, or commit a sin, or offend another, or not live up to the expectations of others, and then watch fault finders jump out of their chairs with much finger pointing and fussing. These are works of Darkness, the works that come forth from those who have not crucified unto themselves the desires of the Devil. How is Satan able to make the people of God so easily forget the words of our God who has instructed us to forbear with one another, to forgive one another, to be patient with one another, to help one another, to encourage one another, and show mercy towards one another? As I listened to the words in this vision, these venomous accusations being spewed out, one against another, and one church against another, I also realized that I was able to hear another voice coming forth, from where I do not know. It was the voice of the most wicked and sinister laugh that I have ever heard; it was as a laugh that was coming from some one being that believed that he was in complete control; a laugh from one who seemed to be completely confident that there was nothing that anyone could do to break the power of control that he possessed. I knew that this laugh must have been the same laugh that Goliath mocked Israel with, especially when he saw David come forth as Israel’s champion; and we all know what Goliath’s end was. But even more than Goliath’s laugh, this laugh that I heard was far more sadistic; more like that intimidating voice that

 

John 6:46 “Why do you call me Lord and do not that which I say?”

 

Galatians 5:24 “Those that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh its affections and desires.”.

 

John 8:44 Jesus said, “You are of your father the Devil and the desires (to accuse and find fault) of your father you will do…”

 

2 Kings 18:28-33 “Then Rab-shakeh stood and cried with a loud voice in the Jews’ language and spoke saying, “Hear the word of the great king, the king of Assyria: Thus says the king, “Let not Hezekiah deceive you: for he shall not be able to deliver you out of his hand and neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD saying, “The Lord will surely deliver us and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria…33 Has any of the gods of the nations delivered at all his land out of the hand of the king of Assyria?”

 

While I was still meditating on this vision when the Spirit of the Lord brought to my remembrance the condition that Paul found the church at Corinth to be in; that is, he found a body there also that had not yet beheaded its carnal mind, still subject to the natural wisdom that desires to strive, find fault with others, accuse, argue, and point the finger at one another. Paul then wrote to them saying in I Corinthians 3:1-3 “And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with meat; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; for you are still carnal. For when there is envy, strife, and divisions among you; are you not carnal and behaving like mere men? Paul had obviously found in Corinth a church that was a identical to the body that I saw in my vision; one where the children of God had no shame in their fussing or pointing their fingers at one another, even though Jesus commanded us only to love one another. O if the carnally minded church understood that there is truly another state of mind that the Lord has called us into; a state of mind where the wisdom of God rules. When the wisdom of God rules over the thoughts of the mind, then there shall not be found any fussing or pointing the finger; and neither shall there be found there any judging or accusing, even when one is caught in the act of adultery. For the mind that the wisdom of God rules over is the spiritual mind that was also in Christ Jesus, who thought it not robbery to be equal with God. Is not the wisdom of God the same as or equal to the wisdom that is in God? But who is willing to make his own wisdom and understanding a sacrifice before the Lord, laying down the righteousness of his own judgments, his own comparisons, in his own understanding, his own accusations, his own contentions, his own doctrines, and his own unforgiveness so that the love, and the mercy, and the forgiveness of God might be resurrected in the thoughts of his heart? Who will allow for himself to be offended of his own judgments of others rather than to be offended by the mistakes, the sins, the faults, and weaknesses of others?

 

James 3:14-16 “But if you have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, do not glory; and lie not against this truth. This wisdom descends not from above, but is earthly, sensual, and devilish (of the Devil); for where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.”

 

I Corinthians 1:18 1 “For the preaching of the cross (the daily cross) is foolishness to them that are perishing; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent (Isa.29:13,14).

 

Romans 12:1 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service; and be not conformed to this world: but be you transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

 

Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts shall be established.”

 

Why is it that the love and goodness of God leads his people to repent of the evil and wicked thoughts of the carnal mind, but many are led to point the finger and fuss at them who have such thoughts? Are we not his workmanship? Does no the Lord have power to transform the thoughts in our mind? Is it not written that there is no greater love that a man can have for his brethren than to lay down his life for them; that is, the life of the old man who walks after the righteousness of his own judgments that do nothing but bring forth harmful accusations, strife, hatred, hurt feelings, bitter arguments, hopeless condemnations, and that merciless pointing of the finger? Only the wisdom of this world uses the tongue as a sword to pierce, to wound the heart, to separate, and to divide with such wicked and poisonous words; and only God himself can destroy this wisdom for those who are willing to lay it down before him. Jesus said in Matthew 8:20 “Foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has no where to lay his head.” Is not Christ to be the head of the body? How can any man have the mind of Jesus Christ when he continues to hold on to, honor, trust, believe, and esteem the old wisdom and natural understanding that only desires to believe the lies that lust to fuss and point the finger? How can Christ become the head except in those who are willing to submit themselves to be beheaded, allowing and asking the Lord to destroy the wisdom and the natural understanding that instructs them to do these evil and wicked works. Only after the beheading shall Jesus find a place to rest is head; a head filled with the spiritual thoughts of God’s wisdom and understanding that leads us to love and forgive one another.

 

Romans 8:13 “If you live after the flesh, you will die; but if you, through his Spirit, do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live.”

 

Romans 2:3-5 “And do you think this, O man, you who judge those who do such things and you do the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?”

 

John 8:10-12 “When Jesus had lifted himself up and saw no one but the woman, he said to her, “Woman, where are your accusers? Has no man condemned you?” She said, “No man, Lord.” And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more.” Then Jesus said to them, “I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.

 

Colossians 1:9-13 “ “For this cause we also, since the day that we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that you might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding so that you might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with might according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; giving thanks to the Father, which has made us ready to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son”

 

1 Corinthians 3:19 “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God; for it is written, “He takes the wise in their own craftiness. (The wise of this world are going to be judged with their own judgments and accusations).”

 

Romans 15:5-7 “Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus so that you may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Wherefore receive you one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.”

 

I was continuing to inquire of the Lord concerning more about this vision when the Lord spoke in a loud voice to me and directed me to read the letters to the seven churches.

 

Letters to the Seven Churches

 

Revelation 2:1-3:22 “Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things says he that holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks; “I know your works and your labor, and your patience, and how you cannot bear them which are evil: and you have tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and have found them to be liars: and have borne, and had patience, and for my name’s sake hast labored, and have not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against you because you have left your first love. Therefore remember from where you are fallen and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come to you quickly, and I will remove your candlestick out of his place except you repent. But this you have in that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches: To him that overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

 

And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These things say the first and the last, which was dead and is alive: I know your works, and tribulation, and poverty, and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which you shall suffer: behold, the Devil shall cast some of you into prison so that you may be tried; and you shall have tribulation ten days: Be you faithful unto death, and I will give you a crown of life. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; He that overcomes shall not be hurt of the second death.

 

And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things says he which has the sharp sword with two edges: I know your works, and where you dwell, even where Satan’s seat is: and you hold fast my name, and have not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwells. But I have a few things against you, because you have them there that hold to the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So have you also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. Repent, or else I will come quickly to you, and I will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches; To him that overcomes I will give to eat of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written which no man knows except he that receives it.

 

And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things says the Son of God, who has his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know your works, and charity, and service, and faith, and your patience, and your works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against you because you suffer that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give to everyone of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you no other burden. But that which you have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcomes and keeps my works to the end to him will I give power over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

 

3:1 And to the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things says he that has the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know your works, that you have a name that you live, and are dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast and repent. If therefore you shall not watch, I will come on you as a thief, and you shall not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy. He that overcomes, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

 

And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things says he that is holy, he that is true, he that has the key of David, he that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens; I know your works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it: for you have a little strength, and have kept my word, and have not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews (Rom.2:28,29), and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which you have so that no man takes your crown. Him that over-comes will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

 

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, “These things says the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot: I wish that you were cold or hot. So then because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot I will spew you out of my mouth because you say, “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing and you do not know that you are wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel you to buy of me gold tried in the fire so that you may be rich; and white raiment so that you may be clothed and that the shame of your nakedness does not appear. And anoint your eyes with eyesalve so that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcomes I will grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

 

After I got through reading these letters, the Lord then said to me, “As you read these 7 letters, did you see what I saw in my churches? Did you see all of the faults, the errors, and the sins that I found in my churches? But did you see the hand of my love extended towards each one of my churches with the instruction to repent? Is it not written that I correct all those who I love? Did you see in any of these letters where I accused, or pointed the finger, or condemned any, even those that had allowed for Satan to establish his throne among them? Did I accuse, or point the finger, or condemn any of those who have lost their first love for me? Did I even accuse, or point the finger, or condemn any of those who of those who had allowed the spirit of Jezebel among them? If I did not accuse, or point the finger, or condemn any of these, my people, then who have I given permission to accuse, or to point the finger, or to condemn at any of these, my people? From where did the instruction come from for any to do such a perverse thing? Is there anything more perverse and out of order than for a sinner to accuse, or to point the finger, or to condemn others for their sin? Has not my word testified that if there is any among you that thinks he has no sin, then he is deceived of himself? Have I not told you that your adversary the Devil would come in amongst you dressed in sheep’s clothing? It is he who speaks the lies that deceives the carnally minded Christians to fuss and point the finger at their brethren. I told you that he was the most cunning of creatures; and seeing that his only desire is to bring destruction and death on all the saints, he then speaks the lies that tempt those who are wise in their own eyes to judge and condemn others, even without any mercy, knowing that those who doing nothing but bringing destruction and death upon themselves through their judgments and condemnations of others. I correct”, says the Lord. “Do I bring divisions and schisms among my own people. Never; and neither do I bring damnation or condemnation to any, even though many of my people are deceived to think so; but the deceived are ignorant and do not understand the judgment of their Lord. It is not my will that any should be destroyed or perish, but that all should be saved.

 

Hebrews 12:6 “For whom the Lord loves he corrects, and scourges every son whom he receives.”

 

Matthew 7:1-3 Jesus said, “Judge not so that you be not judged; for with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

 

Romans 2:1-4 “Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whosoever you are who judges; for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge do the same things (have faults, sin, and make mistakes). But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who do (judge, accuse, point the finger) such things. Do you think this, O man, you who judge who do those things (have faults, sin, make mistakes), and you doing the same that you will escape the judgment of God?”

 

1 John 1:8 “If we say that we have no sin, then we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us”.

 

Matthew 12:34-37 Jesus said, “Brood (children of) of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the Day of Judgment; for by your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.”

 

Jeremiah 5:3-4 “O Lord, are not your eyes on the truth? You have stricken them, but they have not grieved; you have consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction. They have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return. Therefore I said, “Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the Lord, nor the judgment of their God.

 

Jeremiah 8:7 “Yes, the stork in the heaven knows her appointed times; and the turtle, and the crane, and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people do not know the judgment of the Lord.”

 

Proverbs 28:5 Evil men do not understand judgment, but those who seek the Lord understand all things.”

 

If the Devil seeks to satisfy his lust in bringing damnation and condemnation on my people through finding fault, accusing, blaming, and condemning the faults, the sins, and the weaknesses of your brethren, then shall not his children, who are subject to the same lusts, desire to do the same? Is it not written that in every house there are vessels of honor and vessels of dishonor? Who told them to judge, to find fault with, to accuse, and to point their finger at their brethren? There is only one Judge. Come out from among them, my children, come out from among these vessels of dishonor that call me Lord but do not do that which I say; for did I not command you to love one another? Come out from among them that dishonor the name of love. Come out from among them that are ensnared to fuss and point the finger at their brethren; who judge and accuse those who are covered by my blood. Does not my blood cover a multitude of sins? Did I ask any of those in the seven churches to come out from among those who were weak or that had fallen sin? No; I only asked them to repent. It is my will that none should perish but that all should repent. As my will was then, so is my will now. I am still asking my people to repent of their faults, their sins and their weaknesses, but I am also asking my people to come out from among those who accuse, who find fault, who would blame, and who point the finger at others for their faults, sins and weaknesses; those who choose to judge and accuse rather than to love and forgive. Come out from among those who by their own lusts have appointed themselves to be God and judge over my people.

 

John 8:44 “You are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father you will do (accuse, point the finger, find fault with: see John 8:3-12) He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie (his accusations), he speaks of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”

 

1 John 3:15 “Whosoever hates (thinks evil of) his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.”

 

Isaiah 58:9-11 “If you take away from the midst of you the yoke of putting forth of the finger and speaking vanity; and if you draw out your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall your light rise in obscurity and your darkness shall be as the noonday: And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy your soul in drought and make fat your bones. You shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.”

 

James 4:11-12 “Do not speak evil one of another, brethren. He that speaks evil of his brother and that judges his brother speaks evil of the law and judges the law. If you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is one lawgiver who is able to save and to destroy: who are you that judge another?”

 

Titus 3:1-2 “Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities: to obey, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility to all men.”

 

O, if those vessels of dishonor had just come to me and asked me to remove the beam out of their eyes. I would have done so! Do not be afraid of their fussing or the pointing of their finger, but come out from among them and ask for me to remove the beam from your own eyes, lest you also be made a partaker of their sins. Seek for, cry out, and call for the wisdom that comes from above; the wisdom of God that desires and delights in loving your brethren unconditionally: the wisdom that delights in showing mercy to all, the wisdom that delights in forbearing with those who are weak in their flesh, and the wisdom that only knows to forgive and forget. My wisdom is that loving spirit that loves all those who are in these seven churches, even with their faults, with their sins, and in the times of their weakness. My wisdom yearns to lead them all into repentance. Those who love to fuss and point the finger will not find anything to be desired in her, for they only delight themselves in the strife and divisions that are birthed out of this world’s wisdom. This world’s wisdom is the matrix that births all the wicked and evil desires that delight in judging, in finding fault with, in accusing, in blaming, in pointing the pointing the finger, and in condemning others. Only those who have followed me, having taken up their crosses and crucified unto themselves these Devilish desires to accuse the brethren, shall find the way to escape from the darkness that inhabits the wisdom of this world.

 

I Corinthians 1:18,19 “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness, but unto us who are being saved, it is the power of God; for it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

 

Isaiah 47:10 “For you have trusted in your wickedness: you have said, “None sees me”. Your wisdom and your knowledge, it has perverted you; and you have said in your heart, “I am, and none else beside me.”

 

Luke 18::9-14 “Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus within himself, “God, I thank you that I am not like other men….”

 

Zephaniah 3:15 “The Lord has taken away your judgments; he has cast out your enemy. The king of Israel, even the Lord, is in the midst of you, and you shall not see evil any more.”

 

James 4:2 “…you have not because you ask not (the taking away of the pointing of the finger and our judgments of others).”

 

Then the Lord once again took me back into this same vision, where I saw again these same churches that are located at the different parts and different joints of the body. This time I could more clearly hear what they fussing about: “You have allowed the spirit of Jezebel and other religious spirits into your church; surely God is done with you. You have the spirit of antichrist and you are not of us”; and, “You have lost your first love and surrendered the affection of your heart to the spirit of antichrist; surely the Lord has now abandoned you”; and, “You follow after the spirit of antichrist and work the works of iniquity; you are possessed with religious spirits and you are not of us. Surely the Lord is finished with you”; and, “Antichrist has deceived you with his lies and God is going to spew you out of his mouth because you have become lukewarm; you are not of us.” On, and on, and on the evil suspicions, the accusations, the blaming, the arguments, the fault finding, the strife, the slander, and the pointing of the finger continued, one member of the body against another. By now I could not believe that I had originally laughed at anything that I was now seeing in this vision; it was just plain sickening and disheartening to see and hear the words that were spewing out their mouths. In fact, I have never seen saw such finger pointing, such anger, such envy, such criticizing, such division, such blame, such jealousy, such contention, or such endless arguments anywhere. It was not hard to see that though these churches were only members and joints of the body, they each thought that they were “the whole body of Christ”, and none could see any need at all for what the other members of the body might be able to supply. What grieved me more than the words that I heard was the appearance of disgust and contempt that I saw on each person’s face as he or she continued to spew out these wicked words out of their mouths. I could also clearly see that each person was very strong in his belief that he was so righteous in the judgment that he or she was using to accuse and point the finger at the faults, the sins, and the weaknesses of his brethren. I neither saw any grace nor did I hear any truth in any of their words.

 

Isaiah 65:2 “I have spread out my hands all the day to a rebellious people that walk in a way that is not good, after their own thoughts.

 

It was also on this revisit back into this vision that heard another voice coming from the midst of all of this fussing; a small voice that was as quiet as a whisper. I then tried to block out all of that fussing from my ears so that I could solely focus on this small voice and what it was saying. Suddenly I heard it, and even though it was a soft voice, I could clearly hear it saying, “Come out; come out of her my people. Come out of this harlot church that does not cease from fussing or from the pointing of the finger. Come out of her lest you be made a partaker of her sins by fussing and pointing your fingers at others; thus bringing damnation upon your own heads. Come out from those who seek to control my flock with their fussing and their pointing of the finger. Come out from those who seek to control my people with judgments and intimidations. Come out of her for this is the hour of her judgment; and great is the Lord who judges her. Come out, and come to me, and I will be your God. What fellowship do those who love one another have with those who judge and accuse one another? What fellowship do the faithful have with the doubters? What fellowship does light have with darkness? What fellowship do the righteous have with the whorish hypocrites? What fellowship do those have allowed for God to make them to be the work of his hands with those who work the works of their own hands? What fellowship do the humble have with the proud? What fellowship do believe my instructions with those mock and scoff at them? Come out from among those who refuse to behead the enmity of the carnal mind. Come out and separate yourselves unto me and I will be your Father, and you will be my people. Come out!

 

Revelation 18:4-8 “And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you do not receive her plagues; For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. How much has she glorified herself and lived deliciously. So much torment and sorrow she gives: for she says in her heart, “I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow”. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day: death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judges her.”

 

Romans 2:3-7 “And do you think this, O man, you that judge them which do such things and you do the same, that you shall escape the judgment of God? Do you despises the riches of his goodness, and his forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance? But after your hardness and impenitent heart you treasure up to yourself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God: who will render to each one according to his works”.

John 10:2-5 “He that enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter opens, and the sheep hear his voice; and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.

 

II Corinthians:14-18 “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion has light with darkness? And what concord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has he that believes with an infidel? And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God; as God has said, “I will dwell in them and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be you separate”, says the Lord, “and touch not the unclean thing and I will receive you, and I will be a Father unto you, and you shall be my sons and daughters”, says the Lord Almighty.

 

Isaiah 64:6,7 “But we are all as an unclean thing and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities (self-righteousness; being Lord and God over your own Christianity), like the wind, have taken us away. And there is none that calls on your name, that stirs up himself up to take hold of you. For you have hid your face from us and have consumed us because of our iniquities.”

 

Matthew 23:27-28 “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whited tombs which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within you are full of dead bones and of all uncleanness. Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men but within you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.”

 

II Timothy 3:1-5 “Know this also, that in the last days perilous times shall come; for men shall be lovers of their ownselves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unholy, unthankful, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God and having a form of godliness (outward appearance of righteousness) but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

 

II Thessalonians 3:6 (AMP) “Now we charge you brethren, in the name and on the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) that you withdraw and keep away from every brother (fellow believer) who is slack in the performance of duty and is disorderly, living as a shirker and not walking in accord with the traditions and instructions that you have received from us.

 

II Thessalonians 3:6-7 “But we command you brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw from every brother who walks disorderly and not according to the tradition (love) which he received from us.”

 

1 Timothy 6:3-5 “If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ (love), and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words (division and strife), from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, constant friction between men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.

 

As I heard these words, the Spirit of the Lord brought into my remembrance something the Lord taught early in my walk. One Sunday I had attended a church that I had never before attended; and while I was there, the pastor railed on accused, and without any mercy judged and accused a certain politician. Even though I was still just a baby Christian, I sat there thinking within myself how this man could think to do such a thing when the scriptures clearly state that we should not judge others. Then the Lord spoke to me and said, “Do you see what this man is doing?” I answered and said, “Yes Lord, he is judging another.” The Lord then said, “No, he is sowing fear in the hearts of his congregation. He is doing this by ruthlessly fussing and pointing his finger at this man so that if anyone in his congregation does not do as he says, he is getting them to believe that he will stand behind his pulpit and ruthlessly fuss and point his finger at them. He is doing this to gain control over the flock; for he knows that if the congregation fears him, they will follow after the counsel of his words rather than the counsel of my words. This is the man who intimidates and threatens with his words to get the people to believe his words. My ministers always obey the counsels of my words, and they also steer the hearts of my people to do the same.”, says the Lord. “If I said, “Judge not”; then my ministers will also agree and say, “Judge not”. My ministers walk with me; and two can not walk together except they are in agreement. Herein is the difference between my ministers and teachers and the false ministers and teachers.”

 

John 14:26 “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you.”

 

1 Peter 5:2-4 “Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. And neither as being lords over God’s heritage (as one in control), but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear you shall receive a crown of glory that fades not away.”

 

Amos 3:3 “Can two walk together except they be agreed?”

 

I then cried out, “O Lord; where are the vessels of honor? Where is the real love of God that goes beyond that which man corrupts with his play acting? Where is the patience and forbearance that we are to have towards one another? Where is the encouragement and edification? Where is the mercy and forgiveness? Where is the body where every joint and every member supplies for the lack of his brother? Where are those who seek to believe your words rather than trying to overthrow them with their reasonings and false doctrines? Where is the body that has Christ for its head and the brethren that are united in love? Where are those who will not settle for anything other than the true love that Father has promised his people? Oh Lord, how big is that beam that blinds the eyes of the self-righteousness? One speaks in tongues, and then criticizes his brother; and he thinks that he is righteous. One offers up his tithes and offerings, and then speaks evil of those who disagree with him, and he is still confident that how he sees things is the righteous way they should be seen. One helps out in a soup kitchen, and then accuses another of committing adultery; and he thinks within himself that he is like Jesus. I reckon Paul, he who was not blinded by his own righteousness, said it best; “Though I have spoken in the tongues of angels; and though I have been taught understanding in all mysteries; and though I have faith to move mountains; yet, if I have not love, I am nothing (especially not a judge and ruler over God’s people).”

 

Ephesians 4:11-16 “And he gave some, apostles; and some, evangelists; and some, prophets; and some, pastors and teachers: for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ until we all come into the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ so that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men and their cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive. But speaking the truth in love so that we may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: from whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, making increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”

 

Then the Lord said to me, “Have I not paid a great price for my people? Does not the blood that my love shed for my people cover the multitudes of their faults, and their sins, and the weaknesses, even those that still remain within them? When fault, or sin, or weakness abounds in my people, what do I bring forth: the fussing and the pointing of the finger or the grace of my love? Do I give up on my people or do I extend to them the hand of forgiveness and mercy? Do I degrade, or belittle, or shame, or mock any of my people in these times or do I allow for my goodness to come forth and lead my people to repentance? I did not come for a righteous people, but I came for the sinners who believe on me; and it is their belief in the truth about my love and mercy that I account for righteousness. If in these most troublesome of times my love is able to stretch out the hands of my mercy towards my people, then why would not the rest of the members of my body do the same as the head does? Am I the head of the members of my body that do not respond to the counsels of my thoughts? Foxes have holes and birds have nests, but where shall the Son of God rest his head if my people refuse me?

 

1 Samuel 12:20 “And Samuel said to the people, “Fear not: though you have done all this wickedness see that you do not yet turn not aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart.”

 

Matthew 8:20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man has no where to lay his head.”

 

Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

 

Proverbs 10:12 “Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all sins.”

 

Romans 5:20 “Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound; but where sin abounded, grace abounded much more.”

 

If the members of my body had just believed my words and removed that beam of self-righteousness from out of their eyes, then they would not have fussed and pointed their finger; for they would have ceased from doing these works of the Devil: to accuse, to find fault with, to point their finger at others, and to condemn. Every man is going to be judged according to his works; and those who have judged and accused are going to be judged according to their own judgments and accusations; and those who have not judged are not going to be judged. Would he who has lost his first love have accused another member of having the spirit of Jezebel except that he has a beam in his own eye? Would he who has been deceived of himself have pointed his finger at him who had become lukewarm except that he was blinded by the righteousness of his own judgments? Is it possible for any man to judge righteously who judges according to appearances; seeing that he judges according to that which seems right in his own eyes? Did it not seem right for them to take that woman who was caught in the very act of adultery, and then judge her, accuse her, and condemn her? Consider also this: Was there one man in Israel who was able to rightly judge of himself who the Son of God was? No, not one. Shall the elbow judge righteously when it judges the foot according to the functions and abilities of the elbow? Would the ear be able to judge the hip correctly if it compares and measures the abilities and functions of the hip according to the abilities and functions of the ear? What body member is able to rightly judge of itself the other members of my body when it does not even understand or comprehend the abilities and functions of the other members and joints in my body? What member of my body is able to judge correctly another member when it does not understand or know the grace of my love? I alone am the head of the body; I alone am Judge over my body! I alone understand and know all of the functions and abilities of my body. I did not ask you to understand these all of these functions and abilities, but I have asked you all to understand and know how to love one another.

 

Romans 2:1 “Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whosoever you are who judges; for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself… 7 For God will render to each one according to his works”.

 

Matthew 7:1-5 Judge not so that you be not judged; for with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged; and with what measure you measure, it shall measure you. And why do you behold the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the beam that is in your own eye? Or how will you say to your brother, “Let me pull the speck out of your eye; and behold, a beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite; first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the speck in your brother’s eye.”

 

Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of man is right in his own eyes…”

 

I Corinthians 2:14-16 “But the natural man (carnally minded Christians) does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one.”

 

So again, whose head is it that counsels and directs my body saying, “Judge your brother; point out all of his weaknesses and faults; measure your brother against your own righteousness; accuse him at every opportunity you get; show him no mercy; blame him when he offends you; do not forget his sins; and be always suspicious of the beloved? Remember that which I said, that whatsoever you do or say to the least of my brethren, you do it unto me. Did you not know that I am that member of the body, and that I am he who the ignorant fuss and point their finger at? Do you see now how the divided church is divided against me? My people do not know me; for the knee thinks within itself that I am only like unto the abilities and the functions of the knee; and the elbow thinks within itself that I am only like unto the abilities and the functions of the elbow; and the eye thinks within itself that I am only like unto the functions and abilities of the eye. The abilities and the functions that I have given to the eye are outside the box of the abilities and functions that I have given to those who are at the knee; and the abilities and functions that I have given to the elbow are outside of the box of the abilities and functions that I have given to the knee. I am the body, and all of the members and joints of the body are me because the body is mind. I am outside of the box to all the members and joints, and there are none who can know me in my fullness except those who come together in oneness with the rest of the joints and members of my body. You are all members of my body; but those who think that I am only like the image of their member or joint is blind, and he does not know me.

 

Romans 1:18-25 “The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God (his love) is manifest in them; for God has showed it to them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful. But they became vain in their imaginations and their foolish heart was darkened; and professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image like corruptible man (an accuser, a fault finger, slanderer), and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness (self-rightoeusness/Isa.64:6) through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God (his love) into a lie, and they worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

 

The blind, the foolish, and the ignorant are those who have not allowed for me to remove the beam from their eyes; that beam of self-righteousness that judging and accusing others. It is only this beam that keeps them imprisoned to the blindness of the false church: Mystery Babylon. These are they who through the desires for their own glory keep exalting themselves through fussing and pointing their finger at others, not knowing that they are only building and storing up condemnation and wrath against their ownselves because of the perverse judgment that remains in their eyes. They have refused to be beheaded, thus allowing themselves to be grafted into my body. Did I not say that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the Pharisees, you shall in no way enter into the kingdom of God? Did not the Pharisees delight in using the very scriptures themselves to accuse, to hate, to judge, to find fault with, to blame, to think evil of, to look down their nose at, and to point their finger at others? And did they not also attempt to use these same scriptures to accuse and judge me of; me, the only begotten Son of God in whom Father was well-pleased with? Oh, the wicked works of spirit of antichrist; that spirit that moves to tempt my people with unbelief, with rebellion, with doubts, with reasons, and with fears. This is the spirit that entices my people to save their own lives, to keep their own heads. This is the spirit that speaks these lying words for no other purpose than to keep the members of my body separated and divided. Who will lay down his life for my sake, allowing for my love to remove the beam of his own self-righteous judgments from his eyes? Who will lay down his life so that he may receive my life; to love, to do good, to think no evil, to forgive, and to show mercy towards all men. Who will allow for me to raise up my love in their hearts and minds; a love that loves regardless of the weaknesses, or the sins, or the faults that may be seen in their brethren?”

 

Titus 3:3-6 “For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another; but after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior.”

 

Romans 8:13 “For if you live after the flesh, you shall die: but if you through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, you shall live.”

 

Ephesians 4:21-32 “If it be so that you have heard him and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus, that you put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying and let every man speak truth with his neighbor: for we are members one of another. Be you angry and sin not. Let not the sun go down on your wrath and neither give place to the Devil29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying so that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice: and you be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake has forgiven you.”

 

1 Timothy 6:3-5 “If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, the words of our Lord Jesus Christ (love), and to the doctrine which accords with godliness, he is proud, knowing nothing, but is obsessed with disputes and arguments over words (division and strife), from which come envy, strife, reviling, evil suspicions, constant friction between men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.

 

Those who have followed after me will not be found among these rebellious children who accuse, who judge, and who point the finger at their brethren because they have been delivered from the desires of the Devil. What fellowship do those have who delight in doing the will of God with those who only delight in doing their own will? Remember that I said, “Do not look for the living among the dead”; so also, do not look for those who follow me to be found in the house that is divided against me; for they have come out. Do not be troubled, for I always have a remnant that has a heart for me; that is, a people who delight in knowing me and who desire for me to change their hearts and minds into my likeness. These will not bow their hearts to serve the counsel of any words that do not come from my head. Many are called, but only a few are chosen; for only a few will take up their crosses and crucify the enmity of the carnal mind so as to allow their minds to be surrendered to me. Just as the members and joints of your body are surrendered unto your thoughts, so also do those who love me surrender themselves to me, the head of my body. Those who have beheaded the enmity, have beheaded that beastly nature that inhabits the thoughts of the mind with doubt, with scorn, with hate, with reasonings, with pride, with strife, with all fear, with rebellion, with unbelief of my words, as well as with all manner of fussing and pointing the finger. Only when the enmity has been slain will I be allowed to be the head of my body; and only then shall the brethren be able to dwell in unity, having no division or schism among them. I am one; and my body is one. I am one. I am love. I am your one and only Lover. I am the love that makes all to be one. Come out; for it is impossible for any who stand against me, that is, against the members of my body, to be able stand in the days ahead. The house that is divided shall not be able to stand against that which is coming on the earth. Come out and come to me”, says the Lord. “Remember, it is only when the brethren come together in unity that all of the powers of Satan are going to be broken; and I have a remnant that greatly desires to see the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of their God.”

 

Matthew 12:25 “And Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every house divided against itself shall not stand”.
