is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good
work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant,
sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine,
no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not
covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection
with all gravity; (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall
he take care of the church of God?) Not a novice, lest being lifted up with
pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good
report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of
the devil. Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double tongued, not given to
much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; Holding the mystery of the faith in a
pure conscience. And let these also first be proved; then let them use the
office of a deacon, being found blameless. Even so must their wives be grave,
not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things. Let the deacons be the husbands
of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well. For they that
have used the office of a deacon well purchase to them-selves a good degree,
and great boldness in the faith which is in
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:1-3
But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]. Hebrews 11:6 AMPLIFIED
saith the LORD, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy
it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants' sakes, that I
may not destroy them all. And I will bring forth a seed out of
And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation. There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof. Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain. And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken. The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD. Ezekiel 22:23-31
speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that
sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.
“Being then led out by the spirit of the Lord
I saw the barren earth, hard, brown and polluted. Upon this one area the size
of which was immense was an elevated structure that looked as though it were
the ark of
Continuing on in the study of the mystery of the faith, this is the 3rd study in this chapter thus far. One very important thought that the Lord has at this time is the need for His people to come apart unto Him with a small grain of singular faith, like a mustard seed, small and very single in size and shape. The Lord is moving at this time to remove from His true heritage anything that is outside of this singular faith. As He moves this way, all that is surrounding our lives is being removed from us so that we in turn are only just having faith alone in the Lord and in no other thing. The Lord is moving in such a way as to draw us to look up to Him with singular vision and with that hope that cannot be moved or changed, faith that has no other element in it other than the view we have in faith of the Lord’s face alone. Everything else for the Overcomer is being removed; everything that is contrary to this singular faith is being taken away. What the Lord is after is the realization in His people of pure simplicity, a singular faith that is not tainted by anything outside of the person or inside of the person that is contrary to that faith. These elements which “complicate” faith are elements of doctrines, differences, character and character traits that amplify anything outside of that one single element of faith in the Lord alone and in the Lord’s character. So to make us singular the Lord is turning up the heat in our trials, He is increasing the volume of tribulation, He is making the way much harder than it was before and He is increasing in us the shakings and the tumults of daily trial all to the end that we focus our vision on Him alone with faith in nothing else but
~ His very person becomes our only doctrine.
~ His very person becomes our only object in sight.
~ His very person becomes all in us that is all we want or could ever desire.
~ His very person is all we relate to, everything else holds no further value or relation to us.
The trial of this hour is to be brought to this single vision, nothing else is held on to anymore.
“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?”
1) To remove from the body anything that is not of pure faith alone in the Lord’s person.
2) To remove from the body anyone who is not genuine 5-fold ministry to His people.
There have only been a very few Apostles, or Prophets, or Evangelists, or Teachers, or Pastors given to the true Body of Christ in the earth in each generation. There are not hundreds and hundreds of these, but only 2 or 3 or 4 in each successive generation alive in the earth in any given time period. The masses of the 5-fold ministry that is found everywhere and in every corner of the earth HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LORD, even though they think they do. These are self made men who are “kingdom building” for their own little empires, they are not ministering to the true Body of Christ nor do they know the will of the Lord when it comes to ministering that will to His people. These are charlatans, they are not true ones with the Lord’s ordination, it is to these charlatans that the judgment is now falling to separate them from that which is true and from that which is the “in truth” part of His body in the earth. These charlatans minister to the same group that rejoiced in the Lord but then despised Him when He held out to them the cup of suffering by which they would drink His blood and eat His flesh. They killed the Prince of Peace instead thinking they were doing God a service. In our day the masses of Christendom in denominational systems are the fruit and offspring of the false 5-fold ministry, these will be the same ones who will rejoice over the dead bodies of the two witnesses and these are the same ones who in that joy will send gifts one to another. Right now the Lord is bringing them – and us – to judgment TO SEPARATE US FROM THEM.
Do not think for one moment that the coming
of the Lord is far off. It is not, the Lord is coming for a church without spot
or wrinkle, and to do that He must first judge His church to remove those spots
and wrinkles from it. This is happening at this time by the false 5-fold
ministry being judged. In times past I’ve written in prophecy that the Lord is
presently exposing the hearts of world leaders to show the lies and evil things
that have permeated modern society. Now I will also include in those exposed
hearts the false 5-fold ministry. They too will be exposed as lairs and thieves
and not as true or possessing true ordination. The Lord is coming, but He is
coming at this first time FOR HIS SMALL REMNANT. Those who are of the faith
order, those who have forsaken everything to look to
The Lord is going to appear in just that
manchild, that two witness company, those who are but two bowls filled with the
oil of illumination by the Holy Ghost. These very few who have forsaken all
other things in their lives are the ones the Lord is stripping, scourging and
judging right now to remove from them anything that takes their singular gaze
away from looking upon
Going now into depth concerning the vision, the ark that was collapsing is the result of false ministry. These struts, supports, the boards and beams of this false ark are the “counterfeits”, those things which imitate the true. Right now the world is full of counterfeits, the false god standing in the Holy place as God saying I AM GOD. I have never accepted even for a moment that the ordination of people into ministry to the Christian church because of study in a college or university had accorded to it the favor of the Lord. Man’s ordination is something that the Lord does not even recognize. True ordination that comes by the Holy Spirit is given only to a very few people in each generation and all for the purpose of bringing the Lord’s people into a unity of faith in the bond of peace. Now there is the TRUE ARK!
If you look at all those who are ordained of
man’s ordination because of a course of study, their work is to bolster up and
support their man made systems and/or denominations. It never builds anything
The world of Christendom has totally missed the mark when it comes to understanding the Lord’s judgments. They do not realize that the Lord would have us endure the personal cross right up until He comes. Outside of that nothing else matters, if it hasn’t gone through the process of personal crucifixion, then it is not worth keeping. So to sum it up, this singular faith works by singular crucifixion which works by singular motion of the Lord in purifying His elect. Everything that is outside of that is doomed to perish. Those who are upon crosses now will live, those who are not upon crosses now and who do not hold to simple single faith are doomed to utter loss and destruction. The crucified live, the un-crucified will lose everything.
The ONLY thing that pleases the Lord IS SIMPLE
FAITH IN JESUS ALONE. Will
