The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 1Corinthians 15:47-55

 

And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. John 2:17-22

 

All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:37-40

 

And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Revelation 20:1-5

 

From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day. Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. Matthew 16:21-28

 

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 2 Peter 3:9-13

(2 Visions)

(1st Vision which is a continuance from “Thy Body, Thy Blood” at http://overcomers.ca/Epistle_Mysteries/TMOHW_007_Thy_Body_Thy_Blood.htm  )

The Lord then proceeded to rain down upon the earth the hailstones of fire and brimstone. Upon each continent of the earth the stones did fall, seven larger ones, one per continent. The covering upon the ground of land masses and of the buildings which man had made disappeared under the flowing fire of these stones which buried the element of the earth in this consuming fire. All the elements of the earth were buried from view as the fire extended like a wave of unstoppable heat consuming all things that man had built and all things that man had made in an effort to make a name for himself. Nothing that man had created for himself since Noah emerged from the Ark of safety was left remaining after the fire. All was covered in a hot heat, such as has not been seen before as the world of man was discomfited from his own way and from his own rule. Nothing in the world of man survived the melting of these elements. When I looked upon the surface of the earth, the entire surface was covered in this molten mass of this judgment so that nothing was left outside of the fire, everything was consumed. The fire looked as though it were red-hot boiling coals with masses of black stringy branches through it so that anything that was left not burnt was slated for and set into the burning. This indeed was a tremendous display of the judgment of this second world which must end by the fire of the jealousy of the Lord and by His promise to melt the elements with a fervent heat.”

(End Vision)

(2nd Vision)

“Upon the earth saw I the lives of the Overcomers, those who had yielded to the power of the inworked cross in their lives and who loved not their lives unto death. These stood upon the earth in the midst of the nations where they were set and by which they lived crucified lives following the Lamb of God withersoever He led them. Then saw I suddenly, within a moment of time, a bright swirling cloud of the glory of the Lord envelop them from without and also from deep within their very souls where the Lord dwelt as one with their spirit. The Lord from within and from without massed Himself suddenly upon them as a whirlwind fully encompassing their flesh bodies upon the earth. As the Lord did this their flesh changed and they received, new bodies, which had veins as did once their former bodies in which veins flowed this same bright light and glory of the glory of the Lord which now had taken them fully in all respects as to who they were in identity with the risen Lord. These were thus glorified, their bodies changed in an instant in this time that is now closing in upon this world and by which the first resurrection will happen. These walked forward in eternal bodies filled with the light and glory of the Lord.” (End Vision)

“My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.” Proverbs 2:1-8

 

When one sets their heart to seeking after the Lord and has purposed in their thoughts to find out the secret things of the Almighty, that person must be willing to lay down all other preconceived ideas in order to find out the will and the mind of the Lord. When one seeks after the Lord in this way of abandonment, one must also find that what they discover about the Lord will be confirmed to them in a very plain and sure way by His spirit which indwells them. The more one seeks for understanding from the Lord, the more they will recognize that the Lord is jealous for this, that He desires that we run after Him, seek Him, cry out to Him for wisdom and understanding to “know” and to “perceive” every counselling word of wisdom that comes from His spirit within. The Mystery of Our Change comes in a simple wave of understanding when one has thus sought after the Lord this way. This type of wisdom dictates to us that the Lord is not going to withhold any good thing from the earnest seeker, but will, along with their heart’s desire, meet their every need and accomplish in them the need for their full identity with the living Christ. When we study this next mystery, it is important to realize that we are not grasping after “wishful thoughts”, but are basing our hope upon sound words that come from the scriptures themselves and are testified to by the risen Lord. The fact is that the Lord, in the power of the resurrection, will bring the Overcomers into the very same promise. It is the future of the Overcomer.

 

Get this first point straight in your understanding. To get this straight, one must not have any lukewarmness in themselves in any area, they cannot love this present world, they cannot be a part of this present cosmos other than just “passing through it.” This is the understanding. That just as the Lord destroyed completely the first world prior to the safe passage of Noah and the souls with him in the ark, so this world you see now will not pass over into the millennial age of Christ either; except those who are in the ark of safety in this hour, that ark being the true church of the living Christ. The body joined expressly to the head. That body, that church, that group joined without schism to the head, receiving its life and power from the head will be the ONLY THING that passes from THIS WORLD to the next.

 

There are three worlds. The first world perished in the flood in Noah’s day. This second world will perish completely at the manifestation of the sons of God. This is true prophecy. The third world is the millennial reign of Christ wherein through the process of TIME in the third world, all men will come to know Christ and to be taught solely by Him. We are now at the end of the second world.

 

Absolutely everything you see in the world around you, everything being man’s politics, man’s economies, man’s religions, WILL UTTERLY PERISH. Not ONE SINGLE PART OF THIS WILL ENDURE THE FIRE OF TESTING THE LORD IS NOW BRINGING UPON THE WORLD. There is NOTHING but the bare naked souls of men that will come through this testing that has begun in the earth, the tribulation of this hour is designed by the creator to destroy all the ways of man. The Holy Lord God Almighty who dwells in the height of heaven and by whose name all the families of the earth will be named will not allow one particle of this present world you see now to enter into the next age. By one particle I mean all that man has made in his carnal wisdom. The next age is the age of the Kingdom of God in the earth, the Throne of His Kingdom swallowing up and consuming all other things including nations and the souls of men. It is the millennial reign of Christ. Do you see that nation over there? Do you see this accomplishment of man over here? IT WILL NOT SURVIVE THE BURNING.

 

Now hear me well. When I say that a nation will not survive the burning, I mean that part of the nation that exists outside of the life of the Lord. That part of their person which does not know the Lord. That part is to be eternally destroyed. But THE SOUL of that nation will be kept IN SALVATION. Understand that the nations are like individual souls, each one as a separate entity is dealt with as a person. The glory and honour of each nation, AS they were created, will enter into the Kingdom of God in the time of the millennium, MINUS THEIR OWN CARNAL WAY. So hear this. All you see about you in the world of men, in the news, in the politics, in the religions, in all realms of Christendom which have twisted the word of God to suit lukewarm ear tickling doctrine, all of this WILL BE DESTROYED.

 

Here is what is about to happen. Bind these words to your heart for they are prophetic utterances from the spirit of the Father and from the counsel that comes by His will.

 

The Lord will, for a time, shake everything that can be shaken. He will be fought against by the political leaders of the earth, by the religious leaders of denominations, by the economists and those who trust in man’s money and wealth. These will rise to resist and invent methods and means by which they will combat the shakings and not submit to the discomfiting that the Lord is doing. Every negative thing you see now in the world in every area is being done BY THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD TO SHAKE APART ALL THE SYSTEMS OF MAN. It matters not what man legislates or what law political officers create, the Lord is shaking it. Each time the Lord’s spirit begins to move He will allow the evil devices of man to eventually self destruct, each thing being frustrated and thwarted by the Lord undoing all man tries to do. Every corner of the world of men, every area, every nation, all of them are presently enduring this process.

 

Now just as Noah while the ark was being prepared preached to and warned the world that then was, so now the Overcomer IS THE ONLY ONE whose presence is convicting and warning and showing forth TRUTH verses everything else which has waned from truth. The Overcomer stands now as Noah did, preaching truth and displaying truth in the midst of all the mockings of man and nations. Noah’s name meant “rest”. The Overcomer who enters into rest with the Lord trusting fully that His will shall be done, will labor in that rest to prepare the ark of safety for this time. That ark IS the body of the living Christ . The time came when Noah ’s preaching ended. He and his family were shut up into the ark by the Lord and the judgement of the Lord in that day ended all that lived in the first world. We are not yet in our day shut up in our ark so to speak. There is still a bit of time for the Overcomer’s to preach, warn, correct and build the ark of safety for the end of this second world.

 

Now when I say that the Overcomer “builds” the ark for this day, which ark is the body of Christ, I do not say that to disagree with the words of Jesus who said “I will build my church”. This said He when referring to the rock foundation of the church as He addressed Peter and the other disciples. The actual act of Jesus building this church IS AGREED TO BY THOSE WHO HAVE ENDURED THE PROCESSINGS OF DAILY TRIAL AND TRIBULATION. For those who form the body of Christ and who are part of the ark of safety for this hour have become a questionable lot. They look very strange to the rest of the world and of Christendom. Yes, that is right, I am equating the body of Christ to being those who obey the Lord and who do not entangle themselves in religious effort of any kind. I do not accept the notion that those who live in disobedience to the Lord are actually living parts of His body in the earth! Those who are vital members of His body have taken heed to how they build upon the foundation which has been laid, the Apostles and Prophets of old, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone. These are THE TRUE BODY OF THE LORD. Some are very angry with me that I have stated this many times in the past over the years, that there is a true and a false church in the world today. The true church of the living Christ LOVES NOT THIS WORLD NOR THEIR OWN LIVES UNTO DEATH. The false church builds in this world, gets tax breaks for their shrines from lawmakers and is recognized as god-men when they wear the denominational cloth. THESE ARE NOT THE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. I say unto you that these who live thus as friends of the world WILL FALL UNDER THE SAME JUDGMENT OF THE LORD AS WILL THE NATIONS. Nothing they have built will endure the shakings.

 

If you recall Revelation chapter 11, you will remember the Lord giving power unto His two witnesses. This was first mentioned as the two olive trees in Zechariah chapter 4, same word. These two witnesses, these two olive trees ARE THE OVERCOMERS. Those who in their lifetime obeyed the Lord took up their personal crosses, died to this world and all that is in it, died to their own lives, died to their own ambitions plans and schemes, died to anything of their own life, AND LIVED SOLELY UNTO THE LORD. These never made a name for themselves but by the processing of long hard trial and tribulation came unto the Lord as fitting one of two categories; Moses and Elijah. They became like Moses or like Elijah AS TO THEIR CALL. These bore witness TO THE LIFE OF CHRIST IN THEM. I daresay unto you the reader that these who form the Lord’s two witness company in the earth ARE THE TRUE BODY OF CHRIST. The rest just don’t fit in! These who are the Lord’s two witnesses in the earth live in the present realm of witness, BUT THEY CONTINUE TO LOOK FOR THE GREATER WITNESS YET TO COME.

   

The very next thing is the literal transformation of your physical frame, the body with eyes that you are in right now reading this paper or listening to my voice with your physical ears. Your body will change into the same cell structure and the same light and glory as Jesus had when He rose from the dead out of the cold hard stone tomb. The Overcomer will rise as part of the two witness company and will stand upon their feet, the voice will be heard worldwide, “COME UP HITHER”, and the Overcoming company will rise to be enveloped in the clouds, the same clouds that enveloped Jesus when He rose, the conglomerate spirits of those who from the heavenly realm witness to these things.

 

When you note this happen, you know the time has come. Very quietly, very securely, all your inner tribulation and outward circumstance will suddenly come into great peace. That is the sign of His soon appearing and of you receiving The Mystery of Our Change. You are about to receive your eternal glorified body.
