The Sons of Aaron

Sons of Aaron, notes compiled from prior teachings

Introduction

Christ speaks to us today spiritually and as always as we have seen in all of our previous studies on the milk doctrines and Offerings, the OT shadows points to the spiritual realities for us today in order to know the Father, Christ and those whom He is sending Luk 17:3). This is age abiding life.

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.

Joh 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.

The tribe of Levi

The Levites who served and are serving that cannot touch the holy things of the temple, are from the same tribe as the priests. Who then are Aaron and his sons, and why were they chosen as priests? Aaron and his sons are Levites but they form the priesthood and are set apart to God to minister and serve. Christ is our High Priest and we are like Him. Aaron which typifies Christ ministers in the Holy of Hollies.

Exo 28:35 And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound shall be heard when He goeth in unto the holy place before the LORD, and when he cometh out, that he die not.

Exo 28:36 And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.

When we love, i.e. keep the commands and teach others to do so, we, serve each other as His priests.

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.

Priests, sons of Aaron, come out of the Levites, like we, are coming out of spiritual Babylon. In other words, spiritual Levites, represent hearers only before our Day of the Lord versus sons of Aaron, sons of Christ, BEING MADE into His Image through our baptism of fire. Levites have not been tested and tried yet.

  • Priests are hallowed
  • Priests are anointed

The Lord establishes Aaron and his sons as priests for the purpose 0f ministering to God and His people by hallowing them for the job.

Exo 29:1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest’s office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish,

Priests are BEING washed with water first (our first BAPTISM).

Exo 29:4 And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water.

Then, priests are being anointed with oil, baptized into His DEATH, a process.

Exo 29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.

Mat 20:22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

God, the Father uses Christ and His Christ, those with wisdom to ordain His ministers.

Exo 28:41 And thou shalt put them uponH3847 (H853) (H853) AaronH175 thy brother, H251 and his sonsH1121 withH854 him; and shalt anointH4886 them, and consecrateH4390 (H853) H3027 them, and sanctifyH6942 them, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s officeH3547

The first appointments to any office with Christ in His tabernacle was done with the laying on of hands of Moses to Aaron and his sons. For us this has a spiritual meaning, found in Timothy.

1Ti 5:17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
1Ti 5:18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
1Ti 5:19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
1Ti 5:20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
1Ti 5:21 I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
1Ti 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.

The Hebrew concept of consecration is to “fill the hands” with the one you are placing yours hands on. In other words, in order to ordain anyone to an office of the Lord, one must give their full confidence to the one being appointed and also recognize that by doing so they too will have their “hands full” and be able to lay hands on others.

Ministry of the sons of Aaron

Num 18:1 And the LORD said unto Aaron, Thou and thy sons and thy father’s house with thee shall bear the iniquity of the sanctuary: and thou and thy sons with thee shall bear the iniquity of your priesthood.
Num 18:2 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee shall minister before the tabernacle of witness.
Num 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.
Num 18:4 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.
Num 18:5 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: that there be NO WRATH ANY MORE upon the children of Israel.
Num 18:6 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you they are given as a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Num 18:7 Therefore thou and thy sons with thee shall keep your priest’s office for everything of the altar, and within the vail; and ye shall serve: I have given your priest’s office unto you as a service of gift: and the stranger that cometh nigh shall be put to death.
Num 18:8 And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Behold, I also have given thee the charge of mine heave offerings of all the hallowed things of the children of Israel; unto thee have I given them by reason of the anointing, and to thy sons, by an ordinance forever.

The priests of God were and are BEING anointed so that they can be set aside and consecrated to SERVE the Lord, and by SERVING the Lord they are being used so that NO MORE WRATH comes upon the children of Israel WITHIN first and then without. For us today, it means we are being made into kings and priests, being saved if we endure.

Rev 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1Pe 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

MINISTERING to the people, within first, we judge ourselves and love our brethren without. Remember love is the bond of perfection.

Act 5:25 Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are STANDING IN THE TEMPLE, and TEACHING THE PEOPLE.

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

1Co 9:13 Do ye not know that they which MINISTER ABOUT THE HOLY THINGS live of the things of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar?

And here is what the priests of God, who have been ORDAINED by the Lord, speak and preach about the temple among other things:

2Co 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2Co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

God uses the FOOLISHNESS OF PREACHING to spread His Word and to confound/confuse those who are “wise in their own hearts” within and without.

1Co 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

Being saved is a continuous process just like preaching and teaching is. “Spiritual priests” in this role are given to train up other kings and priests who will all be joined together in the fullness that is to come later after the 1st resurrection. Priests have no dominion over anyone’s faith but rather persuade and declare all the counsel of God Acts 20:27 – 30).

Heb 13:13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.
Heb 13:14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.
Heb 13:16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Heb 13:17 Obey (better translation be persuaded) them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

Spiritual priests feed the church and declare, with the Words of God, the counsel of God to the flock of God, because they are overseers. As women, first looking within and then without, we do not teach in the church but rather apart from prophesying do this:

1Ti 5:10 Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints’ feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.

Tit 2:3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;

Tit 2:4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,

Tit 2:5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

The iniquity of the priesthood

 The iniquity of the priesthood falls on us all, to learn and be raised up as kings and priests. However, it is God, via His Spirit, who anoints those in whom He would have serve the TEMPLE, the body of Christ, by being overseers NOW in this present age. Think spiritually, it is the man child within that oversees the old man. Without, the Lord appoints elders and overseers of the flock and we as women prophesy and do not teach our elders.

1Ti 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

We no longer know no man after the flesh, and just as Christ was a son of man and the Son of God, we must recognize that the Lord still has us all living in temporary tabernacles that we must endure with the guidance and counsel of the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Head and anyone following Him will always be pointing to Him in all things. God set some in the church in different functions with different gifts and that includes those that today fill the role of being chosen, anointed and given to “bear the iniquity of the sanctuary” being in service to “bear the iniquity of the priesthood” without in the Body. What is the iniquity of the priesthood? Remember those spiritual words we are to speak?

Teaching, being overseers, speaking the Truth about Life and the Way and pronouncing the commandments of God are all roles which are fulfilled by those given to fill the spiritual function of being a priest in the temple and ministering to the people of God, speaking words of truth and soberness.

Act 26:24 And as he thus spake for himself, Festus said with a loud voice, Paul, thou art beside thyself; much learning doth make thee mad.
Act 26:25 But he said, I am not mad, most noble Festus; but speak forth the words of truth and soberness.

1Co 14:19 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue.

The honor of being part of the priesthood is found in these Scriptures and that is to be part of the holy first resurrection, when the fullness of times has come, we experience it now in down payment form (2 Cor 1:22).

Rev 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand

Suffering for Christ

 As the sons of Christ, sons of Aaron in type and shadow, we suffer with Christ. This is the calling of all kings and priests, there is a price we are paying:

2Ti 2:12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him, if we deny him, he also will deny us:

Rom 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

1Pe 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

High priest

Christ is our High Priest and we are being made into His sons. As He is, so are we (1 John 4:17).

Heb 3:1 (ESV) Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession,

Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Understanding the connection between Christ and His sons, the Christ, always entails knowing how the High Priest is chosen.

Heb 5:1 For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins:
Heb 5:2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.
Heb 5:3 And by reason hereof he ought, as for the people, so also for himself, to offer for sins.
Heb 5:4 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron.
Heb 5:5 So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee.

The body is made up of “many members in particular”, those members are given gifts, not of themselves but given by God.

1Co 12:14 For the body is not one member, but many.

1Co 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

1Co 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

Like Joseph in type and shadow, priests are called out from their brothers and are given special clothing and placed and 1) anointed above their brothers. 2) Priest are to teach their brothers. 3) Priests bear the ark. 4) Priests are to blow the seven trumpets of judgment, and 5) Priests are to blow the two trumpets of witness.

1) Priests are anointed “above their fellows.”

Psa 45:7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed [mashach – #4886] thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, [even] thy God, hath anointed [chrio -5548] thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

2) Priests are faithful teachers:

1Sa 2:35 And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever.

2Ki 17:27 Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land.

Mar 8:31 And he [Christ] began to teach them, that the Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

3) Priests bear the ark;

Jos 3:8 And thou shalt command the priests that bear the ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan.

2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

Priests stands firm on the doctrine of Christ:

Jos 4:10 For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of Jordan, until everything was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to speak unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and the people hasted and passed over.
Jos 4:11 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over, that the ark of the LORD passed overand the priests, in the presence of the people. [Or to put this in New Testament terms:]

Col 1:23 If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and [be] not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;

4) Only the priests blow the seven trumpets:

1Co 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1Co 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Jos 6:13 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of the LORD went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rearward came after the ark of the LORD, [the priests] going on, and blowing with the trumpets.

Jos 6:16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the LORD hath given you the city.

Rev 8:2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets. …….. Rev 8:6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

5) Only the priests blow the two silver trumpets. These trumpets announce general gatherings, alarms for journeys, special gatherings, and to go to war in our land Num 10:1 – 7,9).

Num 10:8 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow with the trumpets; and they shall be to you for an ordinance forever throughout your generations.

Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Conclusion

God’s anointed priests who live in “the day of small things”, are those who are being made faithful to His Words.

1Co 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.

Jesus Christ IS making holy garments for His prophets so that they too can be used to show the glory and beauty of the work of the Lord.

Exo 28:3 And thou shalt speak unto all that are wise hearted, whom I have filled with the spirit of wisdom, that they may make Aaron’s garments to consecrate him, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.

Moses as type and shadow of Christ, will do the making by “speaking to the wise hearted who have the spirit of wisdom (Christ)” so that they can make these garments of consecration. We are prophets the Lord uses to minister to others. Priests wear holy garments to approach the Lord properly. We see six different items being made: A breastplate, and ephod, a robe, a broidered coat, a mitre and a girdle.

Exo 28:4 And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest’s office.

Priests, sons of Aaron, have been ordained by God and are being clothed with items that the children of Israel are using to create to give God all the glory. We, the spiritual Jews, the Bride of Christ, come together to represent all the many membered functions and gifts of the body of Christ. The image of the items given to the priests to wear and what they represent tells us that Christ takes His judgments seriously. Sons of Aaron, minister inside the vail and are the covering cherubs guarding the Words of Life (John 6:63), doers of His Word, coming out of the Levites who coming behind in no gift are yet carnal. We are all spiritual Levites and sons of Aaron in our seasons and times because we live by every Word of God (Matt 4:4). Look inwardly is, was and will be as the Lord is working with us through Christ and His sons (Heb 13:21).

Spiritual Levites have the appearance of godliness but the sons of Christ have the POWER of Life which are ……. the Words that I am speaking (John 6:63). They continue to abide in Christ and is being made faithful.

Lying Signs and Wonders

beast withinMat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

The end of the age (AION) comes at midnight the darkest part of the night.  It comes at the very peak of our spiritual deception when we are madly inflamed on wine and staggering in spiritual drunkenness.

Mat 25:6 And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Our falling away into God’s strong delusion must precede the coming of the Lord to us the second time for salvation without sin. We will be spiritually dead worshiping the beast within before the Lord will drag us to Him and suddenly appear and bring salvation to us.

Heb 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

We will never understand any of this until after we have lived it.  We will look behind where we have come with new God given ears to hear and then we shall also see the plan and purposes of the Lord.  None of us will see spiritually until our day of judgment. All of us will be shut up in spiritual darkness until then. Judgment first comes to the house of God as Peter wrote and it is this process that will awaken us to the true righteousness of Christ.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God

In the meantime those called of God will be deceived by lying signs and wonders and the many false prophets The Lord sends into our lives.  Christ said His purpose in coming was for judgment and that would be brought by making those that claim to see blind.

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.

God’s Elect, the chosen few will be the first redeemed from the earth and will live by every word God has spoken. This means they will first be deceived by the false ministers of Babylon and the lying signs and wonders that God causes that make the deception and spiritual blindness so pervasive. We as His Elect will first claim we see but will be totally spiritually blind just like all of Orthodox Christianity.  However, in our appointed time, those few chosen of God will come out of the harlot.  It will take some time for all the plagues of God to destroy our carnal mind and all the deceptions we had trusted and had learned.

This woman is the apostate church that represents orthodox Christianity that will be very appealing on the outside arrayed with all the fine things of God yet her hands hold a cup full of all her impure and defiled doctrines of devils that mix the things of God with the things of this world.

Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

The harlot and the signs and wonders we see while part of this harlot are very convincing. This post will focus on these lying signs and wonders that are used of God to deceive us and keep us in the bondage of Babylon for our appointed 70 years. Some may have an ear to hear and will be edified by knowing these things are true.

The Falling Away (ours) Must Come First

Evening always precedes the morning.  Darkness comes before the light.  God is calling light out of the darkness He purposefully creates.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

The way salvation comes and the eternal (“aionious” in the Greek) life that comes with it, that is knowing Christ and the Father is that we individually must fall away first into great spiritual deception. There is no avoiding it. All who come in the presence of Christ first fall backwards.

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.

Paul who himself had an astonishing experience of first walking in strong delusion, mentioned this often to the early believers. The falling away must come first!

2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,

2Th 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

2Th 2:5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

Living by every word includes falling away. The beast that we all are has to first be exalted onto God’s throne in our hearts and worshiped by us and then this same beast, the man of sin will need to be revealed to us in our day of judgment. These words of Paul and all the words of Christ are living words that is, was and will be. These were not speaking to some future event regarding orthodox Christianity 2,000 years in the future. That is what the carnal man believes yet the truth is the corporate church had already fallen away before the Bible was even finished being written.

1Jn 2:18 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Act 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Act 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Act 20:31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

Each supposed reformation (i.e Martin Luther) just formed a new layer of deception and built more lies upon the false foundation of another jesus. Major heresy and damnable lies such as eternal torment, the fall of man, the trinity, man having free will were just covered up with more lies and the truth was totally blotted out of the orthodox churches. People like to quote “early” church leaders from the first few centuries, yet these were of the apostate church that had already blossomed from the days of the Apostles.

In fact late in Paul’s ministry, he told Timothy that ALL those in Asia, in all the churches he had started had forsaken him and had fallen into apostasy.  The great falling away was not some event set 2,000 years out that had no effect to the generations that have preceded us here in 2013.

2Ti 1:15 This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.

Talk about a lonely road!  Even Demas and our beloved Titus who Paul wrote a letter to in our Bibles fell away and went back into this present world.  The deadly wound to his beastly head was healed and he fall away from the truth going back to the elementary principles of this world.  Which is what we all will do until we are dragged out by God.

2Ti 4:10 For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia.

The lying signs and wonders will deceive every man and it is only God’s Elect who will be rescued from the deception by the mercy of the Lord.  But this is God’s plan, His will has been done in this regard, and we are going to look at some of the ways God uses to keep the multitudes bound in total spiritual darkness with a veil over their eyes.

God’s Elect will only come to know the truth by looking behind themselves and seeing after the fact what God had done all along. We all live the examples given us of ancient Israel. They and you and me will rebel against God all the while thinking we are doing Him a service and are in good stead. Those stories were not written for them that lived then, nor are they a history lesson, they were written for our admonition upon whom the end of the age have come.

1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.

Out of Egypt Into Babylon/Assyria

The plan for the people of God is to go into Babylon when they first come out of Egypt. Here they will spend their appointed years in captivity and bondage to the carnal doctrines of Orthodox Christianity.

Hos 11:1 When Israel (God’s Elect) was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

Hos 11:2 As they called them, so they went from them: they sacrificed unto Baalim, and burned incense to graven images.

Hos 11:3 I taught Ephraim also to go, taking them by their arms; but they knew not that I healed them.

Hos 11:4 I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love: and I was to them as they that take off the yoke on their jaws, and I laid meat unto them.

Hos 11:5 He shall not return into the land of Egypt, but the Assyrian shall be his king, because they refused to return.

This indeed is one of the spiritual lessons that the Old Testament is given to tell those with ears to hear what will have been their journey before Christ is revealed to them.

1Co 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages (world) are come.

We all are snared by that woman Jezebel, spending time in the all seven churches of the book of Revelation which is just bible speak for one church. Seven being the number of completion in the Scriptures. We will think we have arrived and need not anymore repentance.

Rev 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Jezebel represents the spiritual whore Babylon and her doctrines, a.k.a. the ninety and nine who thought they do not need repentance. They truly believe that they are the true church of God with all their signs and wonders and all their good works they count for their own righteousness.

Pro 30:20 Such is the way of an adulterous woman; she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, I have done no wickedness.

But when in Babylon we are fornicating with the harlot, we are eating poisoned food and bitter waters all the while claiming to not be a widow and that Christ is our husband. We will not yet know nor believe that we are a wretched man and the chief of sinners.

Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Luk 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Only God’s Elect Shall Eat True Bread

To be in Christ we must eat of His body.  When Christ dwells in us we are in Christ and He is in us.

Joh 6:54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
Joh 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

Yet only the few, not the many called are given this bread to eat.  It is not up to man or his delusion of free will to choose to eat this bread, it is indeed given to us.

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’s plan and purposes is to call a few out of the many to be His Elect and continue the ministry of Jesus Christ. As the body of Christ, only God’s Elect are given the right to eat at the altar. Jesus Christ is the true bread from heaven and this is only given to His chosen few to partake of in this life.

Heb 13:10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

None of this is based on any merit, it is all given to men based on God’s purposes and declarations regarding Election. His counsel shall stand not matter what the wise men of Babylon or the reasoning’s of religious men say.

1Co 2:6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:

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:

Those in Babylon will hate us for these words and for the coat of many colors we are given by God. The story of Joseph tells of God’s dealings with His Elect.

Gen 37:3 Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

Gen 37:4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.

I have learned this lesson. Being persecuted and hated for simply speaking the truth of God’s word. This is the walk of God’s Elect who are blessed when they are persecuted for righteousness and His name.  Those that remain in spiritual darkness cannot bring themselves to speak peaceably to God’s Elect. God put enmity in their hearts and is working all things for the counsel of His will. All things a man has or does not have is all the Lord’s doing. There is nothing any man has received that was not given to us by God.

1Co 4:7 For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

The Levites versus the Priests

Many are called and few are chosen. It is the very Elect, who are the only priests of God. Only they can handle the instruments of the temple of God, which is His word. The Levites who are in type and shadow, those in Babylon only serve the tabernacle of the congregation, but they cannot go past the veil (the flesh) nor handle the instruments in the temple, lest they die.

Num 4:15 And when Aaron and his sons have made an end of covering the sanctuary, and all the vessels of the sanctuary, as the camp is to set forward; after that, the sons of Kohath shall come to bear it: but they shall not touch any holy thing, lest they die. These things are the burden of the sons of Kohath [the Levites] in the tabernacle of the congregation.

Lev 10:13 And ye [Aaron and his sons] shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons’ due, of the sacrifices of the LORD made by fire: for so I am commanded.

The altar in the holy place is the golden altar of incense, and no mere Levite who is not the seed of Aaron the high priest was ever to eat at that altar. The high priest is a type of Christ as our high priest.

“They which serve the tabernacle” but “have no right to eat” with us, are those who are “carried about by different and strange doctrines” because they fear offending their brothers who think nothing of eating “meat offered to idols” and thereby causing weak brothers to think there is nothing wrong with eating meat offered to idols. Meat offered to idols is the doctrines of Babylon and the doctrines of those who serve the tabernacles, and are “carried about by different and strange doctrines which Paul calls “the cup of devils”.

1Co 10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.


Num 18:2 And thy brethren also of the tribe of Levi, the tribe of thy father, bring thou with thee, that they may be joined unto thee, and minister unto thee: but thou and thy sons with thee [shall minister] before the tabernacle of witness.
Num 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.
Num 18:4 And they shall be joined unto thee, and keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, for all the service of the tabernacle: and a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.
Num 18:5 And ye shall keep the charge of the sanctuary, and the charge of the altar: that there be no wrath any more upon the children of Israel.

Those so blessed to be given the faith of Christ and the revelation of Jesus inwardly eat at the altar of God for which the multitudes have no right to eat. Those in Babylon have no right to eat of the true things of God. Such treasures must be given only to those God has chosen since before the foundations of the world. Those in Babylon will hate us for the favor God has shown.

Heb 13:10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle.

It is the stark contrast between the Levites who are the priests, the sons of Aaron, as opposed to the Levites, who are not priests, but who are commanded to “keep the charge of the tabernacle”, which demonstrates the spiritual meaning of “Many are called but few are chosen”.

Mat 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

Only the priests, the sons of Aaron are able to enter into the tabernacle to do the service “within the vail” of the tabernacle.  Getting past the veil is getting past the flesh and the carnal mind and that only by the gift of God in our appointed times.  Until that day comes, we and the all the spiritual Levites will think the things of God to be foolishness.  They are blinded as that is God’s plan.

2Co 3:14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
2Co 3:15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
2Co 3:16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

The mission field of the disciples is the many called that are in Babylon. God’s Elect are not to bash Babylon as Babylon serves a very valuable purpose in God’s plan for the ages. Babylon is there doing exactly what God has it doing which is keeping the multitudes that come to Christ blinded from the truth. We are to speak against their doctrine however and stand up to the truth and they in fact are the mission field for God’s Elect. We are only sent to the lost house of Israel.

Mat 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

Mat 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel

Mat 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

We are not sent to those God has blinded for now. We are not sent to the 99 who claim they need no repentance nor those that say they do not need a physician. Those in Babylon will think they already have repented and are serving God yet they are yet carnal and know not the true grace of the Lord at this time. God’s Elect will move on when it is clear that God has not prepared someone’s heart to receive the truth.

Mat 10:14 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

God Keeps the Multitudes Blinded

Despite what we learn in Babylon, the plan of God is give light to very few and blind the rest of the world. Of course those that are blind will claim they see yet those words will be revealed for the lie they are at the appearing of the Lord in judgment.

Rom 11:7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

All of us will be spiritual blind and YET CARNAL all the days we are in Babylon and participating in its activities and following its various doctrines all of which contradict the word of God. The whole world is deceived and only by the mercy of God are the few chosen dragged out of this deception and given the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

The deception is complete, it is total. There is not a single doctrine we learn in Babylon that is true. All the gold and silver has been tarnished and cankered by Babylon. The word has been corrupted and turned into wormwood that we all shall certainly drink before we ever know the truth. And this is all part of God’s plan to blind the world and only give sight to a few.

Isa 3:1 For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water

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.

The Lord uses signs and wonders both within a person’s life and external in the world to lead the carnal minded into thinking they are in the truth, have the Holy Spirit and are not part of the whore harlot church that is Babylon. There is nobody better than God in sending strong delusion and making it stick. The Scriptures tell us how God does this and it is through lying signs and wonders. These signs are how our beast receives a deadly wound to one of its heads which is healed as we fall for the lies and carnal doctrines of Babylon. The beast that all men are will continue to rule in our hearts, our day of judgment has not yet come.

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

The signs and wonders are actual signs and wonders, they are real. People actually see miracles happening, great deliverances and healings, outward changes in their lives, but the heart has not been circumcised. They are lying signs and wonders in that they are designed to mask the greater truth from those involved. As Jesus said, His words are used to keep the multitudes in spiritual darkness every learning but never able to come to knowledge of the truth. Babylon does not appreciate these words of Scripture.

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:

Yet this mystery of how Christ can be both total darkness to one side and total light to the other is in the Scriptures for those that are given the understanding.

Exo 14:20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

Psa 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

Good Works and Preaching Will Deceive Us

The whole counsel of God makes clear that the performance of good works, doing good deeds and helping people in the flesh will not get us into the kingdom of God and are also used by God to keep us under strong delusion while we are in Babylon. Many will say to Christ on their day of judgment these words and the Lord will answer.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

The Book of JOB is in type and shadow the story of God’s elect. JOB like all of us when we are in Babylon will put great trust in our good works and use them as justification of our own righteousness. Yet our righteousness as JOB found out is really truly just filthy rags. It is not our UNRIGHTEOUSNESS that is filthy rags to God, it is the good stuff we do, it is our own righteousness.

Isa 64:6 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, like the wind, have taken us away.

Secretly it is all about ME, MYSELF and I or my church and my ministry during our days of being deceived by our good works which become lying signs and wonders. Just look at the boasting JOB held in his heart over all the good works he did before he knew the real God. The insidious sin of self righteousness is one we all will commit and it will be at the peak of our Babylonian service that we like JOB will be thinking such self righteous thoughts and boasting of our goodness and service to God.

Job 29:7 When I went out to the gate through the city, when I prepared my seat in the street!

Job 29:8 The young men saw me, and hid themselves: and the aged arose, and stood up.

Job 29:9 The princes refrained talking, and laid their hand on their mouth.

Job 29:10 The nobles held their peace, and their tongue cleaved to the roof of their mouth.

Job 29:11 When the ear heard me, then it blessed me; and when the eye saw me, it gave witness to me:

Job 29:12 Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

Job 29:13 The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.

Job 29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

Job 29:15 I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

Job 29:16 I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

Job 29:17 And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

Job 29:18 Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.

Job 29:19 My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.

Job 29:20 My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

Job 29:21 Unto me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.

Job 29:22 After my words they spake not again; and my speech dropped upon them.

Our zealousness and participation in many good works are used to blind the multitudes that are in Babylon. They (which is all of us at one time) will think they lack nothing and are rich and increased in goods and need not any repentance. The good works are the proof text they are part of the Body of Christ, or so they think. God uses all of this to keep the multitudes, the many called blinded in Babylon.

2Th 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

2Th 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Fire from heaven is the word of God being spoken in heaven, and that heaven in inside of us. Those in Babylon do have the word of God, which is the fire but it is perverted. Still Babylon is full of many ministers some with great oratory skills and excellent communicators. They will speak on the word of God eloquently but with error and will lead the people astray prophesying smooth deceits to them.

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Rev 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

God used many a false preacher, gifted men with talents and great seeming miracles to prove it to preach the word to me and turn me over to the idols of my heart.  Great men of God preached many a fiery sermon that called fire down from my heavens but only served to take me deeper into the bottomless pit within.  We will be so convinced of this we will vigorously defend our false teachers and prophets just as I did in promoting and defending the false gospel and idols of Milton Green, Derick Prince and David Wilkerson to name a few that had be bound in Babylon long after I had left the building.

What is particularly a compelling lying sign and wonder is the outward changes we make in our lives and the very real deliverance from sins and various addictions. I have heard very compelling testimonies from people who have been delivered of drugs, overcame alcoholism, defeated pornography, turned from thief to good Samaritan.

Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

Rev 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

I don’t doubt any of such miracles as that is what they are, a miracle from God, yet the Lord uses such things to keep the multitudes of Babylon blinded held in chains of darkness awaiting their day of judgment.

Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

God does indeed heal also. He sends all sickness and disease and He heals in many cases. Such healings are also used to help bind the multitudes in darkness. God is good and is working all things, including blinding the whole world for good per the counsel of His will. We are that beast which becomes that false prophet that is actually working against God all the while we think we are serving Him when we are in Babylon.

Rev 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Rev 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

We must remember that it is appointed that man will live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. So all of us, you and me will walk under strong delusion long before we come to know the true Lord. This coming out of Babylon, being dragged to Jesus Christ is a process and there are many stops along the way. This is what makes it that much harder for carnal babes to receive our true testimony when we do come out because it will have been obvious to all the folly of our earlier beliefs, all when we were certain we were in the truth but were actually in total spiritual darkness.

Here is the truth and words we will live by. We can’t know Christ until we first drink of strong drink and get drunk with wine. We can’t know Christ until we first fall backwards and be ensnared into the false doctrines of Babylon. This is true whether we go to a building or belong to a denominational church or not. The mother of all harlots lives within us.

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.

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.

Being a good Samaritan is not about doing many good works in the flesh. Loving our neighbor is obeying God and He has commanded His Elect to go speak His word to a rebellious and stiff necked people who think they lack nothing and are not in need of repentance. The oil and wine we pour out in their wounds bring spiritual healing which are the greater works that Christ said we would do.

Luk 10:32 And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

Luk 10:33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

Luk 10:34 And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Christ no longer calls His Elect servants. He calls them friends because He has made know to us the mysteries of the kingdom and what His plans and purposes our.

Joh 15:14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.

Joh 15:15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.

The Levites of today do not know what the Lord is doing. They are those who God has blinded and shut up in spiritual darkness. The light that is in them is actually darkness and how great is that darkness. It is not their fault or place as such understanding is only given to us if the Lord wills and has determined beforehand.

Deliverance Will “Finally” Come VIA Judgment

A day will come for each of us if we are God’s chosen when the rock that is Christ will fall upon us. I was given this mercy last year and it has completely destroyed the old me as the Potter has turned upside down and is reshaping the new man. It is not pleasant and it will not be popular with friends, family and foes. But if we are faithful, God will finish the good work He has begun in us. The true circumcision is made without hands and our works will have nothing to do with it.

When we begin to see that all that believed were lies. All of it. When we begin to realize that God had purposefully made us drunk with the wine of the harlot which mixed the things of God with the things of this world, then we will begin to awake to true righteousness. We will be shown what a wretched beast we truly are in this vessel of clay. It will be quite humbling and we will be ashamed of all the blasphemy we did against God, all the denying His doctrine and the persecution and false charges we had laid against His very Elect. But when that day comes, the walls and idols that have kept us safe and secure will come tumbling down as all of our doctrines are burned with the fire that is God’s word.

Jer 51:57 And I will make drunk her princes, and her wise men, her captains, and her rulers, and her mighty men: and they shall sleep a perpetual sleep, and not wake, saith the King, whose name is the LORD of hosts.
Jer 51:58 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary.

The people that make up the professing church will labor in vain but the Lord will build His church on His timeline.

Psa 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

Our pride will hold us back from admitting our error. We will play along with the harlot long after we see the truth. We won’t want to endure the shame of the cross and the rebuke of our carnal friends. But like Jeremiah found out, the fire that the Lord has set inside of us will be too strong for our flesh. We will not be able to remain silent for long.

Jer 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.

What a great calling and election this is. I pray all being stirred by the spirit of God will endure thru the trials of life and be found worthy to stand with Christ and rule and reign with Him in the age to come. That is the upward calling of God for which we strive to stay on the narrow path.  God is not at rest, our Father is working and the work He is doing will not be believed by us even if one declares it to us.  It awaits the day of our judgment when the lying signs and wonders will be exposed and the truth of God’s word will be made manifest to us.

Act 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.

The beast will be destroyed.  That is how salvation come and the first Adam is destroyed, making way for the second one, which is Christ in us, the hope of Glory.  Pray the rock falls and breaks you, that is the only way for Christ to come.

Mat 21:44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

beast destroyed
