Gen 18:14 Is any thing too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
We must and we will learn to wait upon the Lord and trust in Him. If we are God’s Elect this process of being dragged to Christ and being taught the truth will teach us thru chastening grace to trust in Him alone. Salvation is all the Lord’s doing and as we come into knowledge of this truth we will be taught patience which is how we walk in the “IS”, “WAS” and “WILL BE” time frames of Christ. This verse will take on a huge meaning.
Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Those words uttered by Christ mean very little to most but they are powerful words of great peace for God’s Elect who are given the understanding of the mysteries of the kingdom. All things are ours Paul said, we will spiritually experience all the words of the Lord.
1Co 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
1Co 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
Paul had come to understand the plan and purposes of God in putting us in these marred vessels of clay and giving us the life experiences we have to humble us and to teach us good and evil. The thinking of the carnal and rational mind is vanity and God uses these very experiences in their appointed times to accomplish His purposes. Carnal man will never understand God’s plan and two step process to save all men.
Jer 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.
1Co 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power
We are the clay and He is indeed the Potter and we are told that out of each lump of clay, God will bring forth two vessels. First the marred vessel of dishonor and then the vessel of honor, molded into the image and likeness of Christ. All in God’s timing. This is such a huge truth, one that will break the yoke of bondage of the carnal mind if we are given the faith to believe it.
Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?
Flesh and blood will not inherit the kingdom of God. Not now or in the future. God’s plan, ways and thoughts will be foolishness to all of us until we are given our spiritual ears to hear. God works this deception as He does all things for good.
1Co 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1Co 3:20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
The purpose of life has puzzled men for centuries yet we have a great Scripture that captures the essence of why we are here in these marred vessels of clay. We are not here to be robots even though we are mere pieces of clay in the potter’s hands.
Ecc 1:13 (CLV) I applied my heart to inquiring and exploring by wisdom concerning all that is done under the heavens:it is an experience of evil Elohim has given to the sons of humanity to humble them by it.
So there it is. What is being worked in our heavens, which is inside of us and on our earth, which is us the marred vessels of clay formed from the dust of the earth, is all an experience of evil whose purposes is to break our prideful spirit and humble us. These are the very same travails of childbirth and how God brings forth His Elect, the sons of God. This remaking process did not begin until Christ ascended into the “heavens”.
Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
This same process of God bringing forth His children through much judgment and great tribulation was spoken of here by Christ.
Joh 16:20 Verily, verily, I am saying to you that you shall be lamenting and wailing, yet the world will be rejoicing; yet you shall be sorrowed, but your sorrow shall become joy.”
Joh 16:21 A woman, whenever she may be bringing forth, is having sorrow, seeing that her hour came; yet whenever she should be bearing the little child, no longer is she remembering the affliction, because of the joy that a human being was born into the world.”
Joh 16:22 You then, also, now, indeed, will be having sorrow, yet I shall be seeing you again, and your heart shall be rejoicing, and your joy no one is taking away from you.”
It is indeed thru much tribulation we shall enter the kingdom of God. There is no other way except to follow Christ and the temple is entered into only as all the vials of wrath are fulfilled in our lives.
Rev 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
This is indeed the purpose of God’s Elect. To save many through our mercy and to bear the burden and afflictions for the sake of the church. Such spiritual truths of following Christ and filling up in the afflictions of Christ is foolishness to the natural man and the orthodox churches of men.
Isa 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Isa 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
The LION of Judah will come to make war with the flesh of the men He has chosen since before they were even born (the earth being formed). The carnal mind is enmity with God and will be destroyed as this is how new life comes forth, thru death and destruction. Of the wondrous works of God to the children of men.
Isa 42:13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.
Isa 42:14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.
Isa 42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isa 42:17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed
Christ will prevail against all enemies and this will be done by making them (causing them) to submit to Him. That is exactly what the Scriptures declare yet carnal minds will continue to exalt men and When we are blessed to see that we are the chief of sinners, and the self righteous beast within all of us is exposed, then the time is nigh and salvation stands at that very door. How blessed are those who trust in and wait upon the Lord to accomplish His work.
Ecc 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
God is orchestrating all of these things in the lives of all men. He is the potter, we are truly the clay.
Ecc 3:2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
God has determined not only the days of our physical birth and death but also the times where spiritual death and rebirth will take place. A time will come when the tares planted in the land will be gathered and burned with the fire of His word. Let him hear who has ears to hear.
Ecc 3:3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
Ecc 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
James told us to let our laughter be turned to mourning and our joy to gloom. God has determined when these things shall take place and when we will live those words.
Ecc 3:5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
Ecc 3:6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
Even our gathering and fellowshipping with men are all ordained of God. There will be times when we are loved by this world, times when we are isolated and feel we are like Elijah, all alone and there will be times where God will put us together with the saints. To everything there is indeed a season as all things written are ours!
Ecc 3:7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
Ecc 3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
Ecc 3:9 What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
God’s process of bringing forth HIS SONS is likened unto child-birth and travails. This is how we are humbled and taught to learn good and evil as we mature into the faith. We like Christ will learn obedience through the things we suffer.
Ecc 3:10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
Ecc 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
We are all born spiritually blind so that we cannot see the kingdom of God nor understand these mysteries. But in our appointed times, if we are God’s Elect, these things will be revealed to us.
Ecc 3:12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.
Ecc 3:13 And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.
Even while we walk in the flesh oblivious to the true workings of God we are being blessed. Christ promises to bless Ishmael even though that seed of the many called shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Gen 17:20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation.
During our appointed times in Babylon, we will be blessed and this great nation will think they are serving God. While they do profess His name, they know Christ only in the flesh and are walking in strong delusion following the millions of carnal doctrines we all initially learn. Yet the few chosen will come out of these many called and it is these that will inherit the kingdom of God in the here and now.
Gen 17:21 But my covenant will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.
But God is doing it all in His appointed times by sending His clouds, His very witnesses to send the rain that brings new life onto the land.
Act 13:48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.
It is simply not in a man to know his way or to direct his steps. God is working all things for the counsel of His will.
Ecc 3:14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
Ecc 3:15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.
Ecc 3:16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
Solomon like all the prophets of old, was given to write of these spiritual truths and mysteries of the kingdom. One being that salvation comes through judgment and with great wrath. It is by coming to see and to understand that all men are beasts and we were created in these marred vessels of clay in purpose, so the Lord can remake all things in the appointed times.
Ecc 3:17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
Ecc 3:18 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
All men will die, all flesh and carnal minds shall be destroyed. God created it to destroy flesh in its appointed times. We came from the dust and to dust we all shall return. But this is where the gift of faith comes in and brings the peace that transcends all understanding. When we believe that even though men perish all men shall live and be resurrected and made new, then we are in the faith and standing on the rock that is Christ.
Ecc 3:19 For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.
Ecc 3:20 All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
Ecc 3:21 Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
Ecc 3:22 Wherefore I perceive that there is nothing better, than that a man should rejoice in his own works; for that is his portion: for who shall bring him to see what shall be after him?
Christ is the answer. He will bring us all to see what shall come after. For a blessed few, His Election, they will come to see these things now. For all the rest, they will come to see it later at the resurrection of the dead. But in any event, this is the blessed hope which will radically change lives and perspectives if one is given the faith to believe it.
Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
We don’t know what will happen tomorrow or even today. But we do know the end as the Lord has declared it. All flesh shall see the salvation of the Lord! Through Christ, ALL men shall be made alive. How blessed are those given the faith to believe these things now. God has spoken it and it will come to pass. In our patience we will possess our souls.
Exo 9:5 And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, Tomorrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.

A brother in the Lord, being taught and remade into the image of God by fiery trials
There are very many false gospels and other jesus’s preached throughout Babylon. Given there are 200 Million false doctrines, there are a seemingly innumerable number of denominations and sects that promote doctrines opposed to the doctrines of Christ. I want to share a particular false gospel that has some very zealous followers who do speak of Christ but without knowledge. This pertains to those who insist that faith in Christ is additive to the law of Moses. This issue was dealt with and put to bed early in the church’s history for those with ears to hear and eyes to see.
Act 15:5 But there rose up certain of the sect of the Pharisees which believed, saying, That it was needful to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the law of Moses.
Act 15:6 And the apostles and elders came together for to consider of this matter.
Act 15:7 And when there had been much disputing, Peter rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago God made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.
Act 15:8 And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;
Act 15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
I was engaged recently with a so called brother that has been ensnared and bound tightly into the carnal doctrines espoused by the Jewish Messianic movement. In our immaturity as babes in Christ we can easily get into the mindset of thinking worshiping God relates to what we do on the external in the flesh. This includes many flesh rituals the least of which is those that think they are pleasing God and Christ more by using what they believe to be His Hebrews names in their speech. The far bigger error is the one that has them believing that the Torah (Law of Moses) and its observance is for Born Again Christians, God’s very Elect. God’s Elect, the chosen few, are no longer bound by the law of Moses and all of its carnal commandments and ordinances. Christ is the new priesthood and with that comes a change in the law.
Heb 7:15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
Heb 7:16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
Grace and truth that came thru Christ has totally replaced the worship of God in the flesh. Yet despite many Scriptures that speak plainly to the old being done away with and the total folly of trying to add the law of Moses to faith in Christ. Paul called such gospels foolish (the foolish Galatians) . Those to whom Christ has appeared and imparted the gift of faith are no longer under the law of Moses. Old things such as that law have passed away and all things are new for them.
Gal 5:18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Paul and the Apostles (ACTS 15) had many a wrestling match with carnal minded believers in the early days of the church and we are promised to have them today. Paul wrote about those that have swerved into this egregious error who teach these things and put their followers into bondage. Such teachers of the law, are deceitful workers, false Apostles and are to be avoided if they insist on their heresy.
1Ti 1:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
1Ti 1:7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.
We are to reject such heretics after the second or third admonition, which I have been slow to do in the past. Such foolishness to be arguing over the law of Moses. It is so vain and useless.
Tit 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
Tit 3:10 A man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;
Tit 3:11 Knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.
The law and its carnal commandments are useful and are good as indeed it is thru the knowledge of that law that we are dragged to Christ in our appointed time. Yet once Christ has come, we move on in our new found freedom and no longer bear that burden of the law of sin and death. And NOBODY in the truth will never then say or think, let’s go sin so grace may abound. Yet that is the false accusation that will always come from those in the flesh when we speak of our freedom in Christ.
Rom 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
Gal 5:13 For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
It would take a very long paper to lay out all the Scriptures and reconcile the arguments used by these Torah promoters. Thankfully other brothers have already prepared such papers (www.iswasandwillbe.com) and I would be pleased to share those links with any who should ask. But I want to share something I see that very simply explains this if we have some spiritual understanding. Christ said this.
Mat 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
Mat 5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
The law is fulfilled in the lives of God’s Elect. When judgment comes, our old heavens and old earth are destroyed by God’s fire. All things are new and the spiritual man is Born by the power of God.
2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The fulfillment of the law in our lives is accomplished when we are judged. This begins at the House of God, His very Elect. The heavens and the earth of a true born again believer have passed away. That is what this says and it validates the true message Christ was given but the carnal minded did not understand from Matthew 5 and His Sermon on the Mount. When we are born again by the gift of faith, then our heavens and earth pass away. We are a new creature! The Law of Moses brings this judgment and when we are judged, then comes salvation and the fulfillment (earnest deposit) of the promises given to Abraham.
If we can understand where heaven is, then these words of Christ will begin to tell a consistent story of God bringing salvation to all men thru judgment in the appointed time.
Luk 17:20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
Luk 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
God’s throne, His kingdom is in our hearts. That is where Christ sits at the right hand of God. As Christ says, we all will live by every word and will be judged, reaping what we have sown. Salvation by no means has any man avoiding the wrath of God. That wrath will be revealed in our heavens against all the ungodliness and unrighteous lies we once believed as the truth.
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
It is by experiencing this wrath and going thru this judgment that we will enter into Christ and come to know Him in the Spirit. The story of JOB tells us of God’s plan to bring judgment and great wrath upon us and in doing so be remade into a new creation.
Rev 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
Isa 54:7 For a small moment have I forsaken thee; but with great mercies will I gather thee.
The Scriptures and prophets of old all prophesied things for us living today that have been blessed to receive the Spirit of God and be judged now. It is these marvelous works of God to the children of men.
2Co 3:3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.
The circumcision is without hands. No flesh is involved in purifying our hearts by faith. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LAW. It is by faith that we will all be saved in our appointed times.
I am still learning how to deal properly with these heretics that are bound by these legalistic bondages and claim to be teachers of the law and know not of the true grace of the Lord Jesus. God has given us power and great boldness to speak His truths, we shall know the truth Christ said and it is this truth that has set us free from the law of sin and death that defines the Torah aka the Law of Moses.
Gal 3:2 This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Gal 3:3 Are ye so foolish? having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh?
Babylon has perpetuated many a carnal ritual that puts the emphasis on the external, what men do in the flesh as evidence of one’s standing with God. Yet God looks to the heart and it is HIM doing the work, the circumcision is truly without hands.
Col 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
You can’t put new wine into an old wine skin. You can’t sew a new patch onto an old cloth. All things are new if one is truly in Christ. God is not looking for fleshly worshipers and has not for 2,000 years.
It takes God given ears to hear to come to know and believe these truths. God’s Elect speak these truths among much opposition because that is our commandment and faith only comes by hearing and for that reason God sends us to do His work.
Jer 22:29 O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.
Act 17:25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things
This is because God is working ALL THINGS in our lives. I had a busy day today, wrestling with beasts and contending with religious spirits that stand in opposition to Christ and His doctrine. I wanted to remind and encourage all that still doubt the sovereignty of God to review the promises of the New Covenant and remember how God made covenant with Abraham.
Heb 6:13-14 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
The Abrahamic covenant is the covenant of faith and is the one God swore on an oath to fulfill and will bring to pass. This quite simply is the salvation of all men. But all of us will walk in unbelief not believing nor understanding this covenant promise that God swore by. We will think it is up to us to take actions to save ourselves. The salvation of all men, the very essence of the good news and the promises of God is foretold to us in many places and the first of those are shown below.
Gen 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Gen 28:14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
Any time you see a reference to the dust of the earth, God is speaking about ALL MEN. Few shall be saved in this life, God’s very Elect but in the end, all men shall be saved and their numbers shall be as the dust of the earth, the stars of the heavens and the sands of the sea. These symbols foretell God’s purposes and His plans to save all men in the appointed times for each. Here are just a few more of the hundreds of witnesses for the salvation of all men. May those with ears hear these wonderful truths.
Gen 13:16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
Hos 1:10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
Gen 15:5 And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
The truth is right here. All shall be sons of the living God in the end. We cannot count the stars, the sand, the dust, this is God telling those given ears to hear that all men shall be saved. The salvation of all men in God’s appointed time is the blessing that shall come, not might come to all the families and nations of the earth. God swore this on an oath and He is not a man that He should lie.
Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
God will make good on His promises to save all men. That is the gospel of good news and it depends not upon man’s free will.
If we go review the promise of the new covenant, which is really the fulfillment of the promise made to Abram, it might surprise some to see that there is no YOU involved in making any of it come to pass. All things are of God and it is especially true that salvation is all of the Lord.
Jon 2:9 Salvation is of the LORD.
This fact that the delivery on the promise of the new covenant is 100% of God and 0% man is seen on both Jeremiah and Ezekiel version of the promise. Let’s take a quick look at each.
Jer 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
Jer 31:32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:
Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Jer 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
There is no YOU DO ANYTHING here in Jeremiah, it is all I WILL says the Lord. The Lord does it all, He works in each of us according to His will to accomplish all of His good pleasure. This should be no surprise because that is what Paul repeated many times in his epistles to the early church.
Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will
Now let’s take a look at what the prophet Ezekiel was given by God to speak.
Eze 36:22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name’s sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
Eze 36:23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
Eze 36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
Eze 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
Eze 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
Eze 36:28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
Eze 36:29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
Eze 36:30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
IT IS ALL OF GOD – GOD DOES IT ALL
What perfect consistency. There is no YOU WILL any of this. NONE. God is doing it all. All the things essential for salvation are the work of God. The giving of faith, the granting of repentance, the filling with an earnest deposit of the Holy Spirit, all things are of God. None of it is the work of man. Our job is to believe and even that is given to us by God.
Joh 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
God even tells us why He does it here in Ezekiel 36:22. The word says He does it to sanctify His great name. Nothing delights the Lord more than to show mercy, He delights in mercy and it is only by His mercy that He reveals Himself to us and brings salvation upon our house.
Nothing brings more glory to God than to turn all of His enemies into His friends and that is exactly what God is going to do.
Psa 66:1 To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm. Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:
Psa 66:2 Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious.
Psa 66:3 Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee.
Psa 66:4 All the earth shall worship thee, and shall sing unto thee; they shall sing to thy name. Selah.
This is all the work of a great God who created us flawed on purpose to teach us and to remake us and to bring great honor for His namesake. Christ is the Savior and it is HIM doing all of it. He gave us the wicked deceitful hearts all men are born with and only He will change those hearts when the day and hour ordained for us to be changed arrives. Oh praise God for His goodness and His mercies which endure forever.
Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
We can take the promises of God to the bank. God is faithful even when we are not. All men shall be saved which means delivered of their sins and washed clean. Even right now Christ is seated in the heavens and is not imputing our sins and trespasses against us. He is working all those things to bring about His good and perfect will in our lives in the times ordained of the Father. This is the good news and it becomes real to us only when we are granted the faith to believe it. If only men would trust in God and not in their delusion of free will and their own strength, initiative and carnal understanding.
Isa 26:4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
Yet all of us will at first deny the Lord and will lean on our own understanding and think it is about us choosing and doing all these things to save ourselves. But that is not the way of God. He is the Savior and the Deliverer and His arm is not too short to save all men. He has declared that from the beginning and He will bring it to pass. Far greater blessing to believe that now and trust in HIM.
Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.
Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
The days are coming and now are that the dead are hearing the voice of Christ and are awakening to the righteousness that is found only by faith in this good news. I hope you will join me in believing this report.
Isa 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
The circumcision of all men will happen. It will be accomplished without hands and flesh and the free will of man will have no part in bringing it to pass. Until we are brought to the place to believe this we will continue to oppose the true work of God.
Col 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
Jer 22:29 O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD
To follow Christ we must be able to “hear” His words and obey His commandments. Christ Himself must give us these ears as chosen by God. Eventually, we all will be taught of God as we are given these ears to hear.
Joh 6:45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
Yet God’s ways are not our ways. The way to coming into the truth first leads through strong delusion. This fact itself is a great deception that has ensnared many of God’s called people that are chosen but have not yet been given their spiritual ears. This deception which like all deception and of course ALL THINGS are ordained of God. We all will drink of strong delusion before we ever come to know the true Christ. THIS IS THE PREREQUISITE.
Deu 29:6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.
Before we will know Him, we will first get drunk which is bible speak to living under strong delusion. When we first are drawn to Christ, all of us will initially fall backward and be ensnared in deception. To come out of Babylon, we all must first go into Babylon and we all do.
Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
One cannot simply pick up a Bible and give themselves ears to hear. That is what the church teaches but that is far from the truth. Still handing out Bibles and encouraging others to read it is a necessary path we all must take. We must first be drawn to Christ and learn about Him and this is often done with Bibles and the Babylon churches. They serve God’s purposes quite well.
Many of my former YouTube and Facebook friends have been greatly influenced by this deception or downright ensnared totally by it. That delusion is that hearing the voice of Christ is hearing a literal voice in your head. I am certainly not going to say God cannot literally speak an audible word to any man, as indeed He did in some of the Scripture events recorded for our admonition.
But when Christ spoke about hearing HIS WORD, He is speaking about being given the spiritual understanding. This takes God given ears to hear.
Mat 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Christ made this statement which is an amazing powerful truth if one is given the depth of the understanding. The flesh profits it nothing, His words are SPIRIT and we must stop thinking about them with the limits of our natural carnal mind. Hearing things spiritually has little to do with the flesh and what is audible.
Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Christ Himself spoke audibly to many people that it says even believed on HIM (John 8:31). These heard literal and audible words spoken by Christ as many did in all the parables. Yet they did not hear Christ, they heard nothing that He said and understood not anything. Christ told them plainly they were not of God and could not hear His word and were still of their father the devil
Joh 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning.
Remember this was spoken to those that claimed His name and believed on Him! But they were not of God as Christ made clear.
Joh 8:47 He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
So believing on Christ and claiming His name and even audibly hearing His words does NOT mean someone has true ears to hear. That is only given to a man in the day and hour appointed by the Father. The mysteries of the Kingdom of God are indeed hidden wisdom that is purposefully hid from the carnal ears and minds of the many called of God. It is only revealed unto Babes in the times appointed.
1Co 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Mat 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.
The mystery of how Christ is formed in us, the few there be that shall find it in this life, is called a mystery for good reason. It can only be revealed by faith given to us and thru the discernment of the Holy Spirit and the spiritual ears that come with it. This is why the truths of this gospel, even simple things like salvation for all and God working all things are rejected as heresy and foolishness by these carnal babes in Christ. There is no surprise to any of us that have been blessed with ears to hear.
1Co 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
This is done on purpose as God’s plan is to save the many thru the few. The Christ of Christ will be the saviors that will judge the world in righteousness in the future in the lake of fire. So to accomplish His plan, God purposefully blinds and makes deaf those that claim they see and say they hear but do not.
Joh 9:39 And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
Only the chosen disciples are given the revelation in their appointed time. To them it is given to hear and to see. To everyone else it is not given. These are not Pete’s words, they are the words of Christ.
Mat 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
Mat 13:12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
Mat 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Mat 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
This sounds very arrogant to those outside of the covenant. But it is just a simple fact and nobody that does hear His WORD will boast in anything except to say they know the Lord, which is the definition of eternal life. In the face of great opposition to the true gospel, Christ has put His words in the mouths of HIS CHRIST which is HIS BODY. He has put these words of fire in our mouths and commands us to go speak them to the lost house of Israel. This lost house is the very ones that believe on Christ and think they already hear, just like those jews described in John 8.
Eze 2:7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
CHRIST speaks His words thru HIS CHRIST. Whether they hear or not we do not know. Yet we speak them anyway.
Jer 5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
This is what doing the works of Christ is all about really. My last post was on this topic and the works of Christ is to speak His words and no longer in parables. The Christ of Christ speaks His words and ears prepared to hear them hear them in the day and hour appointed by the Father. This is what Christ wanted kindled on this earth and in our earths. HIS FIERY WORD THRU HIS BODY.
Luk 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
The stories of the prophets, of which the Elect are His prophets, are to go speak this word to the lost house of Israel. As His Father sent Christ, He also sends us (John 20:21).
Eze 3:4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.
Eze 3:5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language, but to the house of Israel;
Eze 3:6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they would have hearkened unto thee.
Eze 3:7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
So my motive in speaking these words and these truths is to obey God who has commanded that we speak them. We will do it even though we are told very few will hear and the rest will reject us and eventually learn to hate us and speak all manner of evil about us.
2Pe 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
How much more Christ told, us we would be accused of being from Beelzebub given our Lord was accused of the same!
The Christ of Christ, the Elect will go speak these words of fire. And this is why we do it and how Jesus builds His church thru His Chirst. Paul made this clear that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
But nobody will hear if THE CHRIST is not sent to speak these words. But we are sent thankfully and those appointed to hear will hear.
Rom 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
Rom 10:15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
So hearing the words of Christ is not related to hearing a voice in your head. That is a great delusion that sadly has many horribly bound in deception. Some of this group even call the Bible the Mark of the Beast. They will even deny the Scriptures as not being the WORD OF GOD and only say the red letter in the gospels are the WORD of GOD. Such utter nonsense of the carnal mind.
The way of salvation is thru much judgment and great wrath. That day of judgment will not begin until we can first hear the word of God spiritually. It is the WORD that Jesus said will judge us in the last day of our carnal age. But until we are given ears to hear, our judgment cannot begin since we are spiritually dumb. I do not know who will be given ears to hear today, but I am hoping it will be some, maybe even some that read this message. If so, we give praises to the Lord who will have begun the process of bringing back to the fold one of His lost sheep.
There is a day coming Christ said, and is now for a few, when the dead shall hear and they shall rise to eternal life. Far greater blessing to have that day of judgment begin here and to be an active part of the Body of Christ.
Joh 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
All of us, you and me will be SPIRITUALLY DEAD until the day we can hear the Spiritual words of Christ. Until HE gives us ears to hear. It is only those that have an ear to hear that will be the overcomers in this life as told to each of the 7 angels of the churches of revelation, which are all ONE CHURCH that is within us. If we hear now, our judgment is now and we will not be hurt by the second death which is the lake of fire at the 2nd resurrection for everyone but the Elect.
Rev 2:11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
We are told this repeatedly for all seven churches. Being given ears to hear is required to overcome and receive the blessings that are promised to overcomers.
Rev 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
The Elect of God will continue to give food and drink to our enemies and those who oppose this gospel of good news for all. It is that food and drink that shall nourish the least of the brethren when they are given the blessing to hear this word.
If any man hears these words and believes them not, then they are not now being judged. But we all will be judged on the day we do begin to hear and how wonderful are the judgments of God, sweeter than honey and more desirable than gold.
Joh 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
Joh 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.
I pray there are some earth’s within some folks that are beginning to hear these words.
Job 33:16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction
