Col 3:16  Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

This is a place to post comments or ask general questions.  I frequently post here on topics the Lord has given me some new understanding on and over time some of these are turned into official blog posts.   God willing some sheep may be fed and lambs nourished.  It is all in the hands of the Potter.

    The old man is our condition as a marred vessel of clay, made that way purposefully by the Lord. In our carnal and natural condition, we are incapable of doing good and obeying His commandments. Those deluded by the lie of free will and that is up to us to stop sinning based on our supposed free will have not a clue and are in utter darkness and how great is that darkness (Mat 6:23). We all come into this world not created perfect and sinless as the churches of men teach. No we are created marred.

    Jer 18:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
    Jer 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.
    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.

    and this is all His work. We are purposefully made marred, we have no choice in the matter.

    Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
    Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

    Psa 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

    The word translated marred in Jeremiah if you look it up how it is used most of the time, it is the word destroyed. The first vessel, the old man is made to be destroyed and this on purpose. This destruction comes by living thru God’s judgments and having His wrath poured out upon our carnal mind and sinful ways. That is how we are saved, this is how we as the people of God (and ultimately all people) are redeemed.

    Exo 6:6 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the LORD, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:

    Being judged now in this life, is what happens to the chosen few of the Lord. This is His church, the little flock, His Elect, the bride of Christ, many names and symbols in Scripture. But it is not those in Babylon that are still under the influences of the harlot and her 200 million lies (Rev 9:16).

    1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

    The wisdom of God is foolishness to the natural man (1 Cor 2:14). We gain our live by loosing our life. We avoid judgment (the wrath to come) by going thru judgment right here and right now. God’s Elect are the first to go thru this process in this life. For everyone else it will be when they are resurrected in spiritual bodies then they will be judged and that judgment is what will save them (redeem them).

    1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
    1Co 11:32 But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

    This all seems so contradictory to the carnal mind. This is why it must be given for us to see and to hear the mysteries of the kingdom of God.

    Mat 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
    Mat 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
    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:

    I am hoping you are hearing some Steve. Only the Lord can do this. He must MAKE KNOWN His words to you and me. He must cause our ears to hear as Jeremiah 18:2 at the top of this email also says.

    Pro 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

    Psa 10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

    How do you think we obey the Lord? We don’t choose of our own free will, we have no free will. We are caused to obey Him with time by learning He really is the Lord and is in charge of all things. The scourging grace of the Lord, HIS JUDGMENTS is what saves us, it is what delivers us from our sins. Maybe now some things will begin to fall into place for you.

    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.

    Christ does not come to make peace with our old man. He comes with a sword. He comes to divide and separate us from the world and our wicked ways. This is the true grace of God and what a loving Father does to teach us.

    Heb 12:6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.

    That is the definition of the Love of God.

    1Jn 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

    2Jn 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.

    The old man aka the beast will always be there while we are in these marred vessels of clay. Like Christ we will not be perfected until the THIRD day which is when we get new bodies. That beast was, is not yet is and here we see that Scripture.

    Rev 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

    There is no healing in Babylon, that healing is superficial (Jer 8:11). The only true healing is for our old man to be crucified with Christ and suffering many trials and us losing our old way of life. There is no other way. Here is the only way to enter the kingdom, the temple which is Christ. All that bad stuff in the book of revelation must be lived out by you and me. That is the judgment of God and that is how Christ is revealed in us. The kingdom of God is within you!!!! It is not out there, look inside.

    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.

    The real Jesus is not attractive to flesh. We would never willingly go there, we must indeed be dragged just as Jesus said.

    Joh 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me drag him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    Just ruminating on the topic of the clouds some more. Once one begins to see the truth hidden in the spirit then they indeed have a new bible to learn and a lot of false doctrines to unlearn.

    Isa_5:6 And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.

    The rains that comes from the clouds is the word of God that waters the land, washes us clean and gives life to the new man within us. As we see time and time again, whether or not someone has ears to hear the word is indeed given to them. So the Lord commands His Christ (the clouds) on whom we are to speak with and who we are not. We don’t engage with heretics that is for sure and only feed the few sheep and lambs the Lord brings our way, but in any case, we wait upon the Lord. So here in ISAIAH 5 we see this truth again that the Lord will command the clouds not to rain on the earth, which is not speaking of this physical planet. Oh earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the Lord! (Jeremiah 22:29)

    Isa_14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

    Here we have a verse showing us how we (not Satan) will be puffed up and think we actually bring something to God, denying we are all His work. While those in the Body are Christ, they are not the head and when we get puffed up like this, the Lord cannot use us and we are headed for a fall. The Nicolatian spirit is one that wants to rise above the clouds, to be the head of the witnesses that make up the body of Christ.

    Nah_1:3 The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

    This is speaking to the Lord working every aspect of our life, including the good and the bad and using that to bring judgment to us. That primarily comes from hearing the WORD, the words of fire spoken by the His Body (Jer 5:14). The Elect of God are these clouds and are the feet of the Lord, being His very body.

    Mat_17:5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.

    The manifestation of the sons of God will come from the CLOUD. It will come from the Body of Christ who will recognize who is of God and who is not by trying the spirits and testing their doctrine. Anyone that denies Christ IS come in the flesh of this Body is the antichirst and a liar.

    Mat_26:64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.

    All of us in our day of the Lord, in our day of judgment, in our day of salvation (all one and the same); will see the son of man, Christ in the flesh, coming in the clouds of heaven which is the BODY OF CHRIST. We will get it and a door to heaven in our mind would have been opened up by being given this understanding.

    Luk_9:34 While he thus spake, there came a cloud, and overshadowed them: and they feared as they entered into the cloud.
    Luk_9:35 And here came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

    The whole story of the transfiguration is about seeing Christ in the spirit while still being in a body of sinful flesh. We all see this but not until we are on the mount and in the body of Christ, IN THE CLOUDS. These truths of course will be foolishness to the natural man who cannot receive the true things of God even though they may fancy themselves a student of the bible and a religious person.

    1Th_4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

    This is Paul speaking of what happens to us spiritually the day we are brought together in Christ with ears to hear and eyes to see. It happens in the clouds of course and while this does have an outward application as well, the word of God always being IS, WAS and WILL BE, the point I am making is what happens in the here and now when we coming into the marvelous light that is THE BODY OF CHRIST. The same cloud that is sheer darkness to those on the other side of the veil of flesh, being YET CARNAL.

    Jud_1:12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

    Here we see clouds in the negative sense. There are many of the mixed multitude spirit that have a lot of truth but are not given to move beyond on to maturity. They get puffed up and hang around the body of Christ, warming themselves by the fire but yet deny Christ continually by not separating from the world and its traditions or fearing men more than fearing God. These kind, whom I have mad many dealing with, are clouds without spirit, there is leaven in their doctrine, they are carried about by lies, their fruit does not last and ….We are to get these kind OUT OF THE BODY if we cannot convert them from their errors and that is exactly why we have church discipline, the need for watchman etc

    Rev_10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

    Christ dwells in His people and is this mighty angel. He is clothed in the clouds which means resides in HIS body (dwells among and within HIS people), he is our covering. Collectively the body is Christ and are these pillars that keep the way to the tree of life. Nobody enters the temple that is Christ except by coming thru the pillars.

    Rev_11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

    When we are truly born again with the true spirit of Christ, we ascend into the cloud that is the Body of Christ and from there are enemies will behold us. This may well be our families as it may cost us everything to follow Christ just as told the Apostles.

    Rev_14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
    Rev_14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
    Rev_14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

    The saints shall judge the world in righteousness. We do this of course by the words we speak that are fire and that is what consumes the adversaries of God. These verses from Revelation tell of what happens to us when we abide in the eternal fire of His word while in the BODY OF CHRIST, in the clouds of heaven.

    Hope this was edifying to some. PETE

    I wanted to add a few other verses to my already long post on Meeting Christ In The Clouds.

    Here are some witnesses from the old and new about being fed with judgment, the verse I cited from Ezekiel 34

    Eze 34:16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.

    This is what the word does when we “hear” it in Spirit and a door is opened in heaven (in our hearts and minds). This happens to precious few as you know. But here are other witnesses to this same mystery, the one Babylon has completely flip flopped.

    Rev 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
    Rev 10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

    John eating the book is referencing him hearing the word in heaven and that word which is a fire coming to consume and ultimately destroy his old man and carnal nature. Ezekiel said the same, the sum of God’s word does not waiver or contradict.

    Eze 2:8 But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
    Eze 2:9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
    Eze 2:10 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

    if one can understand these things and come to know that being afflicted, IS THE WAY, it is the trials that are the hailstones that sweep away the refuge of lies and dis-annuls the covenant we all make with spiritual death (being yet carnal), then one is blessed indeed. This is the strange work of the Lord!!!!!

    Isa 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
    Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:
    Isa 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
    Isa 28:17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. (THE TRIALS IS WHAT WRITES LAWS ON OUR HEART AND BURNS UP THE LIES)
    Isa 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

    Judgment is sweeter than honey and more desirable than gold. It is how we learn true righteousness and it must begin with God’s Elect in this age.

    1Pe 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
