Mystery Of Unknown Tongues
The Ruling and Reigning Overcomers
Follow after charity, and desire spiritual [gifts], but rather that ye may prophesy. For he that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth [him]; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men [to] edification, and exhortation, and comfort. He that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater [is] he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying. Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine? And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? So likewise ye, except ye utter by the tongue words easy to be understood, how shall it be known what is spoken? for ye shall speak into the air. There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them [is] without signification. Therefore if I know not the meaning of the voice, I shall be unto him that speaketh a barbarian, and he that speaketh [shall be] a barbarian unto me. Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual [gifts], seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church. Wherefore let him that speaketh in an [unknown] tongue pray that he may interpret. For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. 1 Corinthians 14:1-15
Yea, truth faileth; and he [that] departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw [it], and it displeased him that [there was] no judgment. And he saw that [there was] no man, and wondered that [there was] no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance [for] clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloke. According to [their] deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence. So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD. As for me, this [is] my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that [is] upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever. Isaiah 59:15-21,
Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through [thee], I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD [am] thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob. For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, and for wood brass, and for stones iron: I will also make thy officers peace, and thine exactors righteousness. Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise. The sun shall be no more thy light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee: but the LORD shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory. Thy sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself: for the LORD shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended. Thy people also [shall be] all righteous: they shall inherit the land for ever, the branch of my planting, the work of my hands, that I may be glorified. A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the LORD will hasten it in his time. Isaiah 60:15-22,
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Isaiah 60:1-3,
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 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. The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven? Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us [his] flesh to eat? Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. John 6:35-58,
“Supported under my right arm and carried close to the place of the Throne I beheld Jesus at the right hand of the Father wearing beautiful robes covering a white garment as well as a white robe with crimson embroidery. Underneath His robe on His right side of His chest issued forth water and blood in a steady stream, infinite, a never ending stream of water and blood from His side which had been riven by the Roman spear. The water and the blood mingled together and became a mighty river at His feet flowing forth from the place of the Throne. Down went the river of water and blood, down over the paved work before the Throne and down through the gates of the Heavenly City, down unto the earth and to the nations therein. The water and the blood of His riven side covered all nations, all peoples, no one was left untouched by the flow of water and blood from the riven side of the risen Christ. So great was the flow and so all encompassing and so full of peace and joy as all nations came into the flow of water and of blood, the water and blood of The Lord Jesus Christ.”
“I then beheld The Father upon His Throne in the height of His Glory. With His arms strong and outstretched He reached to the left with His left arm and to the right with His right arm. With both arms outstretched He reached and did gather back unto Himself the masses of humanity with His left arm. I saw the masses of humanity, the nations, the individuals in the nations as though they were clay jars being gathered by His outstretched left arm. With His right arm He gathered the individuals from humanity who had been separated from their fellows by trial and by tribulation and by being redeemed from the earth. I inquired of the Angel which held me as to whom these were? He said that “These are they who have forsaken all their lives to be found together with the Lord in full measure.” So the Father gathered all together unto Himself by His outstretched arms and then said “Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.” (Psalm 50:5) I wondered that The Father would say this also unto those who were in the earth in the world of men yet I saw this as an act of full redemption. It was the full measure of the Father’s redemption through Christ enabling all men to be gathered together unto His everlasting Kingdom, no one left out or exempt because of the frailty of carnal flesh. So great was this redemption that they all were made holy by this word of the Father.”
The following writing is a treatise concerning revelation given over many years to Kenneth Bruce Visscher of the work and placing of Sons and Daughters of the Father in the Age of the Kingdom of God that is yet to come. The following is prophecy based upon these revelations.
What the Father is going to do in the next age is an act of complete restoration of all humanity for the duration of time and for the comfort and peace of all nations. No nation will be excluded from the working of the Lord in both correcting and cleansing mankind from the frail condition each inherited from the fall and from the implementation of the Mystery of Iniquity into the hearts of all men. We are told very emphatically that they who commit acts of obedience to the flesh will not inherit the Kingdom of God. Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now [are ye] light in the Lord: walk as children of light: Ephesians 5:1-8. Those practicing such shall NOT inherit the Kingdom that the Lord promised to bring to this earth which means that those who do such SHALL FIRST BE CORRECTED. The next age will start off with two things taking place.
1) The manifestation of the Sons and Daughters of God in bodies fashioned like unto His risen body, glorified with the weight of the personality of the Father and filled with the life of all the ages in a continuance. These will be granted immediate right to rule and reign with Christ upon the Throne for eternity. This company is but a small number represented by the “manchild” or the company finally chosen under Gideon.
2) The severe and utter correction of the nations alive in the earth at the time of the manifestation of the Sons and Daughters of God. This correction will also entail the complete collapse of all of the systems of man governed by man and by man’s kingdoms, monarchies, governments and ruling authorities. All such rule of man ordained for a time by God to keep peace in the earth will give sway to the rule of the Kingdom of God and they that overcame instead.
There were four elements to the life of Jesus which revealed the character of the Father. He was the “bread of life” given for the life of the world. Whosoever eats that bread will never hunger again. “Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst”. John 6:32-35, He was the “water of life” given to quench the thirst of the world. Whosoever drinks of that water of life will never thirst again. “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” John 4:14. He was the “light of the world”, that whoever sees this light would never again walk in darkness. “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life”. John 8:12, And finally, His words were spirit and they were life, whoever heard His voice and His words would walk in everlasting life. “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are spirit, and [they] are life”. John 6:63, They would never lack the understanding needed to know the Father and to know of their place with the Father.
For they that overcome, who are also the ones who will be manifested at the coming of Christ to bring His Kingdom to this world, they too become that bread of life, that water of life and that light of the world. But to the point of this treatise, they become the WORD of the Father. They become the express image of the living Christ as THE WORD OF GOD. Now for a time we see this word as a gifting of the spirit. A gift of other tongues speaking forth in intercession and in power. But that is only a foretaste! The true new vocabulary that is to come cannot be fully known or understood until the human bodies of the Overcomers have taken upon themselves the full measure of immortality. Their corruption must put on incorruption; their mortality must put on immortality. Then their tongues being cleansed of the power of personal iniquity will speak henceforth only that which is the pure Word of God.
These who are thus called to inherit the Throne with Christ as raised with Him and who will be henceforth speaking these words of life unto all the nations are the Overcomers. That small insignificant number of people who at this point in time are separated one from another by time and distance. Some of this number lived and died waiting for this promise to come not seeing it in their day. Some alive now are elderly having waited many long years for all that the Lord has for them. Some are the youth of this day. In every case and by every means the Father has in the power of His resurrection life these that will come together to form this risen body of manifest people, people who have become eternal and never dying. Those who did die will Jesus bring with Him on white horses as part of His Army, and these alive and remaining will join them in this completed redemption. When they are glorified there will be no more trial, no more test, no more tribulation, no more death; for them, the former things will have passed away. They will have entered the eternal state. Know this that this company are “few”, they comprise a very small number by which the Lord will do all His will in the world of men. These few will the sum total of they that are granted the right to sit with Christ upon the Throne ruling and reigning over the entire cosmos and the world of men forevermore. Never ending will be their rule. Now on to the ways in which the Lord will use these ones who have been raised up as the manchild company.
The Overcomer found now in a glorified eternal body exempt from death and dying will have no harm come to them. They will be completely restored in both power of thought in the mind and in their reasoning abilities. The very mind they use will be the mind of Christ and the mind of Christ will be their mind in exchange. What I mean by that is that as one Overcomer in a glorified body thinks, so the entire mass of Overcomers and Christ will think. Their thoughts and the thoughts of Christ’s own mind as it is now will be the very same thought in a continuance, they will all be of the same thinking mind with no part of that mind ever being outside the full measure of Christ’s mind and power of thought. It will be a mind that thinks with the thoughts of the Father and of His will which is the life of the ages. Jesus said “For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. John 12:49-50. So then, the commandment or “mind” of the Father was LIFE EVERLASTING. From the writing in The New Jerusalem chapter #29 called “The Gate of Asher”, and from the writing in The New Jerusalem chapter #30 called “The Gate of Manneseh” comes the following visions to confirm these words. This was a foretaste of the glorified body I had at that time experienced.
“From the place wherein I was held in the atmosphere I could behold within the City the Mount Zion and upon the top a fire enfolding in upon itself and within the billowing fire a Throne set and ONE who sat upon the Throne, even the Ancient of Days. As I entered into oneness with the company of those who were HOLY I found that I had come into a pre-taste of the Glorified Body. For this was a company who walked in the earth in bodies of light and glory which was promised by our inheritance in our Heavenly Father. The same body of light and glory which Jesus arose with from the tomb and which is promised to those who would inherit everlasting life. These who took part in the 1st resurrection were in these bodies of glory. And I looked out through eyes of my own glorified body and beheld the cursed earth and the spiritual entities of principality and power who were round about the earth’s inhabitants. As I looked out through these eyes in the new body, I could see both the natural realm of this creation as well as the world of spirit at the same time. I saw the influences of spirit upon those who dwelt on the earth in natural bodies. These influences were both from the power of carnality and principality as well as Holy or demonic forces which pulled each person into a walk of instability. I could see men walking as though they were in a wrestling match with themselves, being torn this way and that by the influences of that which was good verses that which was evil. Great wrestlings in the world of spirit were taking place over the life of each one. The thing I noted about the spiritual eyes in the glorified body was that I could discern accurately each thing which came into my vision. It mattered not if it were that which God had originally formed from dust, or if it were that which had come from the realm of spirit and all the entities therein. This discernment was not based on time but on continual knowledge of that which was of God and that which was of this lower element in the earth.
At the same time I was aware of the life of resurrection flowing through my new body of flesh, the very life of The Lord Jesus Christ flowing through the veins of this body. That the animations of my body were according to His animations and His workings, that which He in sovereignty purposed to be done in full accord with the Will of God was passed, and that which was the final perfection of His life in a vessel thus glorified was the force of life that flowed through my being, even in my veins.
What interested me the most was the thoughts of the mind in this new body. For the thoughts of the mind were implicitly accurate and complete, there was no partiality or anything that was not in full faculty. As I had seen the Ancient of Days upon the Throne, so I had His thoughts. My mind in this Glorified Body was MY MIND, and I could think as I willed to think. But the thoughts I thought and the choices I made WERE MADE IN PERFECT UNION WITH HE WHO SAT UPON THE THRONE. As God thought, so I thought. As I thought, so God thought. Within this mind was the power of thinking which had no limitation or restriction or falseness or shadow of lack or lack of understanding. Each thought was resilient in the Wisdom of God without any measure of restriction. This was a mind much more intelligent than the one I possessed on earth in my first natural body. The thoughts in this mind were the very thoughts of God, or rather, God thinking in me.” (End Visions)
This is how the Overcomer will walk in the next age while ruling and reigning with Christ.
They will be able to be in multiple places in their glorified bodies at the very same time. A glorified Overcomer, one who now bears the entire character of The Father, will be seated with Christ upon the Throne with the Father in the very heaven itself. At the same time they will be down in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone ministering the life of the Father to those who are thus being consumed by those flames. Theirs will be the ability to reach through the flames to remove from the damned the hidden areas of iniquity within their hearts. As this is being done so too shall they at the same time while there they will judge the false prophet, the unclean spirits and those who fell from their first estate thus cleansing them also from their fallen condition. For the Lord will have the enemies of His person in the spirit world to also know full redemption. The Overcomers in this place of the lowest hell will also be the flames of the lake of fire, they will be used of God to remove by the spirit of burning iniquity off of all they that are in that place. With full power and authority of the creator, they will burn off of mankind, off of the demon spirits and Satan, the false prophet, all that hold to antichrist spirituality and all they that loved and believed a lie, from all of these will the Overcomer as a flaming brand burn away all such dross. Many do not believe that the enemy spirits of Satan and the minions of hell will be redeemed, but when Satan himself bows his knee to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, then truly God will be All in All.
While the Overcomer is seated with Christ and the Father upon the eternal Throne they will be ruling over the Mount Zion, the highest place of heaven as well as all the lower firmaments in heaven. All realms of the heavenly realm will come under their rule for they are called to rule with Christ not just over the nations and the world of men, but over the very heaven’s themselves. With identical authority of the Father they will rule over the heavens to bring restitution and regeneration to all they that dwell in the heavenly realms. Up until this time the heavens themselves have suffered the mighty wars of spiritual conquest and subjection unto God. Heaven itself has been subjected to war just as the spiritual world over the earth has been subjected to war. The warring factions in the heavens are as they are in the atmosphere of the earth at this present time. In this age that is dawning all such heavenly wars will also cease by the rule of the Overcomer over the very heavens. One might ask as to the validity of this thought that there was war in the heavens as well as on the earth. Yet it is to be known that the spiritual armor that is to be obediently worn must also cover those in the heavenly realms if their course of faith has not yet been completed. If it was completed they will henceforth rest in their finished course and in the promise of the crown of life as testified by The Apostle Paul. Their redemption which is of Christ is also coupled with another trait that must be learned by each individual Son and Daughter of God, that trait is obedience. Until full obedience is obtained, wars will continue, the warnings of scripture about inheriting perfection in Christ by obedience will also continue.
The Overcomer then will also reign over all the regions of the earth. Each individual Overcomer will be given geographical territory to rule over in that age. They will rule in the places they lived their lives of faith in and they will do so with a rod of iron. A rod of iron defined means that the very nature of God in demanding full obedience to the spirit of life as found in the commandment Christ received – life everlasting – must be done by this rule. Nothing outside of that rule will be allowed to remain. What is that rule? The rule of ONLY that which is Holy. One time I inquired of the Lord as to why we needed to be holy as He is holy? My question was based upon the thought that God was ultimately responsible for the lack in Adam’s heart in the Garden of Eden so that when Adam fell into the Mystery of Iniquity, he did so because God orchestrated that very fall. Mature Sons and Daughters of God know that God planned the fall of Adam, it was part of His greater working. So then if God compressed creation into this futility, then required holiness for us to return to Him, then why or how was this to be done? The answer was that holiness like righteousness is not only “imputed” to us who believe, but it literally becomes part of our new character. We not only have imputed righteousness acceptable to The Father granted to us, but we also have holiness as part of who we are in Him. It is an act of redemption. So my question went further and I asked the Lord how it was that we were to have this redemptive holiness to become part of our character? The answer was the only one that made the most sense to me. That during the time of tribulation in the earth when the Overcomers life is consumed with test and trials which can be rather severe, that they by those same trials LEARN OBEDIENCE. As they learn this obedience to the Lord the very nature of holiness and of righteousness becomes their very character and nature.
So the Overcomer in the age that is coming will be in an eternal deathless body ruling and reigning with the Lord in heaven, on the earth and under the earth in the realms of hell and of the lake that burns with fire and brimstone – all at the very same time. But that is not all. For the very cosmos itself infinite in scope and size and of grandeur, that also shall be ruled over completely by the Overcomers who bear within themselves the very mind of the living risen Christ. Their words which they once used in tongues to speak forth other tongues will now speak forth a new language which all creation from the highest place in heaven to the lowest place in hell and all creation in-between including the very cosmos, all shall hear this NEW LANGUAGE which will be words of life and power and everlasting life. There is not one single thing originally created by God that will be left out of hearing these words of life. All that is in the world, under the world and over the world will come into these new words by the new language which can only be spoken out of glorified new bodies given eternally to they that had overcome. These will bear these words just as Jesus words were when He rose from the dead.
The company that comprises the Overcomers ARE FEW. There are not very many who understand or know that they are of this company, all they know for now is that they have been separated from their fellow man by trial and by testing. They have no part in the escapism theories of Christendom or of words not based scripturally that is the basis of modern doctrine. Theirs is obedience through trial, obedience through testing, knowing that the full measure of the cross being done in them now will yield a new created man in the end of all things at the very coming of Christ when He comes again to glorify His own. The Lord alone knows the number of this company, these few who found the straight path that leads unto life. Such is the future state of the Overcomer in this age that is promised. May the Lord hasten it in His time.
