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
they were eating,
The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good. Proverbs 15:3
finally, all be of one mind, having compassion on one another, loving the
brothers, tenderhearted, friendly. Never give back evil for evil, or reviling
for reviling, but on the contrary, giving blessing, knowing that you are called
to this so that you might inherit blessing. For he that wants to love life and
to see good days, let him restrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from
speaking guile. Let him turn aside from evil and do good. Let him seek peace
and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears open
to their prayers. But the Lord's face is against those who do evil. And who is
the one who will harm you if you become imitators of the good? But if you also
suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. And do not fear their fear,
nor be troubled, but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and be ready always
to give an answer to everyone who asks you a reason of the hope in you, with
meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that while they speak against you
as evildoers they may be shamed, those falsely accusing your good behavior in
Christ. For it is better, if the will of God wills it, to suffer for well-doing
than for evil-doing. 1
And we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. And not only so, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruit of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, awaiting adoption, the redemption of our body. For we are saved by hope. But hope that is seen is not hope; for what anyone sees, why does he also hope for it? But if we hope for that which we do not see, then we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:22-25
err, my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth,
that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. Wherefore, my beloved
brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: For the
wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. Wherefore lay apart all
filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the
engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word,
and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
“The Lord then from His seated position upon the Throne of Glory leaned forward overshadowing the earth. With deliberate power and strength in His arms he struck the top of the earth, first with the right arm, then with the left arm with His hands extended. As he struck the earth the earth would shake, and veer left, then right and back again, back and forth by the continual blows of the arms of the Lord upon the earth causing the earth to shake and to be moved out of its place over and over again in a continual successive pattern. This shaking the Lord controlled, but it was nevertheless hard for the earth and the nations within it to be thus so shaken and moved by this pattern of the Lord’s impending judgments upon it. First one arm, then the other, back and forth the pounding continued, the earth continued to shudder, shake and be moved from side to side with its axis being continually moved in severe patterns and shakings. This judgment of the Lord was being done in present real time and did not reflect the centuries or ages past in time that has been thus far, but as to the time which the world has now entered. What has taken place in the world of men in the way of dismantling the systems of man is only at its beginning, the dismantling and the shakings and the utter destruction by the Lord’s judgments are going to continue now in a very rapid and increased rate.”
“Out of the nations of the earth back unto
the Lord was a flowing river. This river had flowed as a trickle, as a small
stream for many periods of time, but now the river widened and flowed back to
the Lord to come unto Him as a mighty river. When the river was later seen its
waters were brown with pollutions and with the contaminations that the world
carries within it. The affiliation of this river with the kingdoms of the world
caused this river to be ever so polluted and made defiled so that there was no
purity of water within it as it flowed back unto the Lord. The river did not
flow back unto the Lord of its own volition, it flowed back unto the Lord because
the Lord was the one that caused this to happen, He drew the river back unto
Himself. I saw that in times past the trickle of the river, the smaller parts
of it were pure, holy, and clean with no pollutions. But as time progressed the
waters had begun to increase in size, began to be polluted and began to return
unto the Lord in power albeit unclean. As it returned to the Lord the cleansing
power of Jesus would drop onto the river and the pollutions in it would
dissolve instantly so that the river was cleansed of its pollution and made
pure and clear and clean and so that it would in the end of its flow be a pure
river of clean water which came back unto the Lord out of the world of men. These
are the Overcomers. The firstfruits unto God and the Lamb, they that will take
part in the first resurrection being conformed first unto His death and dying
in this world, then coming alive out of this world back unto the Lord. A clear
line of distinction has been drawn between the world and the company of Overcomers,
it is not “still” being drawn, it “has been” drawn. When the Lord appears this
cleansed company will know who they are in
The intensity of our times is a complete understatement, a bold declaration that holds within it the power to either make a person stronger or completely break them apart. We are in a time of great flux, a time wherein the pressures of this day are almost incomprehensible, where we find more and more the loss of knowing which way is up and where our hope is supposed to be. There is fraud everywhere in the spirit world as the antichrist forces of deception have raised even stronger munitions against the saints of the Most High. There are so very many who claim they are hearing and following the voice of the Lord, but when it is tested, we find that it is the voice of the imitator, that perdition which stands in the holy place as God saying I AM GOD. The most subtle of deceptions in our time is “passivity” which leads to “complacent stances in faith” with no boldness to stand strong in the faith first delivered to us. A stance that is made sure by being lukewarm seems to be the norm for this hour, thinking that the passive acceptance of the things of the Lord is equivalent to overcoming victory. It is during this passivity that we lose touch with the reality of the war we are truly in when it comes to our current spiritual position.
In the natural world the systems of man are collapsing. This mirrors what is happening in the spiritual world as the indoctrinated systems of man are also collapsing. The entire gamut of Christendom is being overrun with deceptions of every sort, nothing is as it seems when it comes to those who claim they have a hold on something valid in the Holy Spirit. When tested, the validity vanishes and those holding on to what they thought was truth end up knowing they were deluded and the recourse of recovery seems to be impossible to them. Many are waking up to the fact that they have been asleep in deception which came by this same passivity.
We are in a war, if you think you are not,
then delusion is your portion. Tell me, why would the Lord in this hour be
preparing His Army? Why is it His will to form His Overcomers into the
Here is the current “state” of the Overcomer right now in our time. Although you may vary a bit from this triple definition, you will nevertheless bear witness to these words. For those whom the Lord calls “Overcomers”, there is a very distinct pattern, right now, today, in this time.
* First, the knowledge or awareness of the presence of the Lord has “waned” from them. They are unable to accurately perceive the presence of the Lord in their hearts, it is there in a very small extent as a still small voice, but it is very minute, very distanced from the scramble of thoughts in the mind.
* Secondly, the Overcomer is not sure which the next step to take is. Where do we go from here? How do we continue to OBEY the Lord when we know not what that step is? The Lord, for the firstfruits manchild company, has taken from them the ability to know what is or is not the current course their faith is to take them in. They have no idea as to where and how they are to currently walk.
* Third, they have no clue as to when the promise of the Lord’s coming and the reception of their glorified bodies is to actually happen, this too seems distanced from them.
As the true Son and Daughter assembly of the Lord, these who are seeking to be part of this great manifestation are finding that they are also “estranged” from one another. The camaraderie that they were supposed to enjoy with each other is instead fraught with separation, division, discord and disharmony. I am not speaking of those who have continued on in lukewarm assemblies getting “new” revelations all the time and having “new” words all the time which support their lukewarm new age condition. I am speaking of those who have abandoned everything to follow the Lord, forsaking everything and everyone in the process. These have found themselves utterly abandoned to the Lord, their eyes fixed on Him alone, but estranged from their fellow Overcomer. Each one is singled out by the Holy Spirit to be “separate” and “alone” with their Heavenly Father while He corrects everything about them. In other words, the thought they had of unity and unbroken fellowship with others is actually opposite at this time, they are singled out by the Lord, held apart from all others and they seem to be completely alone.
The other part of this experience is that in this condition of being alone with the Lord, alone from all others, and apart from any other external supports, that it seems like the Lord removes His hand of protective covering from you. Instead of being held under the shadow of the Almighty in contentment and peace, we find the railing accusations of enemy spirits hounding us in our thinking minds from every direction, from every source imaginable and from every circumstance that surrounds us. The “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High” found in Psalm 91, and the “abiding in His shadow”, is exchanged just now for the railing accusations of the forces of darkness. These forces couple themselves with your own personal carnal mind and they tell you that you are a total and complete failure and that your life is overcome with grief because the Lord has forsaken His promise to you! “You won’t make it as an Overcomer”! , is their railing accusation! This is a very real experience! It is happening right now, TO THOSE WHO WILL BE FOUND PERFECT AT HIS COMING! I say it again; this is a very real experience!
So what is happening to those who have chosen to obey the Lord and come apart unto Him?
They are eating the flesh body of The Lord Jesus Christ, consuming all His flesh.
They are drinking the filled up cup of the
The Lord is requiring us to “drink ye all of
it”. This is part of the overall plan of the Lord, that all external supports
be removed and that faith alone carries us to the point of His return. Or if
you’d rather see it another way, that faith alone brings you unto the Lord IN
PERFECTION. What the Lord is after is PURE FAITH IN HIM ALONE. To bring this to
the forefront is necessary as He prepares to return and to take us unto Himself
in glorified bodies in the first resurrection. To do this FAITH MUST BE FIRST
COMPLETE, THEN HE SHALL COME. To have this complete faith, the cup of
Then He shall come. And His coming will end this separation one from another as we in perfect rank and order are formed into the Army WHICH IS YET TO MARCH. At this present time however we are still in the same outward circumstances, the same problems of life, the same current tide of disintegrating systems of man and the unanswerable problems between nations. As individuals we are still working in this world, doing what is necessary to survive, trusting in our faith for the Lord’s promise to be fulfilled in us. At the same time, THESE PRESSURES ARE INCREASING. The pressure of longsuffering and patience waiting for our change to come and of our lives to see the forward motion of the spirit of the Lord sweep us up into the fuller unveiling of His purposes in the next age that is dawning. Ours is not to “plan” a future, ours is to “live it”, by walking out this perplexing time with our faith alone to carry us, that is exactly what the Lord is after. He wants us to not only exercise and walk in faith, but to be examples of it in the Lord’s eyesight having fully partaken of Christ’s body and blood, eating all of it, and the phrase “drink ye all of it” as being our sole purpose now until His promised appearing. Then we shall eat the new feast which will be given not just to the Overcomers, but to all those in the world of men who will need to be fed the righteous things of the Father.
Those in delusion will live opposite to the scenario painted in this writing. They are content and ok and have no serious distresses to affect them. They claim they have a word from the Lord, but that word is fraught with whatever doctrine they hold to which allows them to live in such utter contentment with no real hard tribulation to endure. The Overcomer is sometimes overcome of heavy trial, heavy testing, not knowing at times which way is up from down. They are held in such a place in the Lord because FAITH keeps them, their trust is ONLY in the Lord and in nothing else, they do not have any crutches to their walk nor delusions to feed them. The Lord is LORD in all they do. The deceived ones have brought the Lord down to their level and have lifted themselves up to the heights of the Holy. But the Overcomer has made themselves of NO reputation and are only able to have faith at this time. This is the final stage before He comes!
