~The New Jerusalem~
|Matthew - Given A Reward|
And as Jesus passed by from thence, he saw a man, called Matthew, sitting at the place of toll: and he saith unto him, Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. Matthew 9:9
The voice of thy watchmen! they lift up the voice,
together do they sing; for they shall see eye to eye, when Jehovah returneth to
And even now the axe lieth at the root of the trees: every tree therefore that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. I indeed baptize you in water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit and in fire: whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing-floor; and he will gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire. Matthew 3:10-12

high mountain and the mountain was the Lord. As a strong stalwart of the

Not only so, but the Overcomers reject any doctrine that gives a false glory to Jesus, one that tickles the ears and gives men an automatic avenue into the Holy things of the Lord. They do not accept shortcuts. Overcomers know that the cross must be carried, whether the bearing of the cross is a long term thing or a short term thing to them, it still must be carried. False doctrines in our day give a sense of an automatic work being accomplished and therefore no one is excluded from the Spirit of the Lord. These have forgotten that the Lord is HOLY and that one cannot just approach the Lord as one would a next door neighbor or a person on the street. It is true we have access to the Lord because of the grace He manifested in our salvation, but this approach to the Lord comes after the heat of testing and trial has removed iniquity from your life. For you cannot come with iniquity upon your lips and deceit in your heart. The Lord is not to be taken so lightly, but He is to be feared, especially in this time of much delusion.
The Overcomer is separated
more and more from all those around them, especially from those who also
profess to know the Lord in truth. Even from these, it seems that the
separations are happening as if it were a great cutting away of their lives
from even being seen or known in the world. Instead of coming together into
unity to worship the Lord with one heart and mind, the Overcomer finds
themselves separated more and more, alone more and more, cut off more and more.
They do not rejoice in meetings or gatherings, nor do they wish to hear any new
word from any preacher or prophet if that word given does not spark worship
unto the Lord. They have fixed their gaze solely upon Jesus and nothing else
will do for them. These stand alone, lost as it were to the world, gone from
the assemblies of men and from the institutions men make to arrange their lives
around the grace of God. The Overcomer is not found in this hour out there
exposed for others to see. They are hidden, alone, cut off, separate. They may
be meeting in little groups of a very few people, but they are not taking part
in any other thing. They know that the will of God will cost them everything,
and they are presently paying that very price to be found perfect in His will.
The true Overcomer has entered into a realm of silent suffering in fellowship
with Jesus who did the very same. They commune with Him in the midst of this as
He perfects in them His will. No one else on earth can even perceive this work
that is being done in the lives of the Overcomer who looks like an ordinary
person in the world, seen day by day, but not known for their true identity in
The reason the Lord relates Matthew to the cut off Overcomer is because it is the Overcomer which will receive the reward of the inheritance in God who will withhold nothing. “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ. But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons.” Colossians 3:23-25. Matthew represented one who was thus separated, as was the Amethyst Stone from the false Ephod, so was the life of this man who DID overcome and who will indeed be a part of this great thing the Lord is about to do in the earth.
Hear this well dear reader. This is not just another writing, but it is a test for you to test your own heart to see if you are indeed in the will of the Lord. For if you are heaping to yourself teachers who are telling you doctrines not founded in scripture nor by the Spirit of Holiness, then you are not going to overcome in the end but will be found wanting. If the doctrine you hold to gives an “automatic blessing”, then you have not heard right, your life is bound in deception, and your attitude is one of a false joy and a false hope. True Overcomers are not going to listen to doctrines that give men place without having the Holiness of the Lord worked into them. They know that if the doctrine does not glorify the Lord IN TRUTH, it won’t also at the same time work in them the cross. The Overcomer DOES NOT SHIRK THE CROSS. Doctrines that tickle the ears has the cross removed from you. When the Spirit of the Lord is quenched, it is quenched by the removal of your personal cross. Overcomers know the power of the cross to save, and to them it is the only standard they have when weighing ‘new’ doctrine as to its impetus in their lives to make them more of an Overcomer than they were before.
The world’s top physicist has made a statement that man needs to find another planet in the solar system which can support life. That migration from this planet is the only way man can survive. Now science has found a planet several trillion miles from the earth that has a 13 day year and can support life. Man in his vanity will point to that as the hope for man being saved in this hour. Even if man did migrate to this new planet, they would do so with the same level of personal iniquity as they have now.
Man is also doing what ear tickling Christians are doing. They are trying to preserve life. They are trying to ‘live’. Instead of laying down their lives for each other, they are attempting to preserve their own life. To extend their days, to pile up wealth against the day of famine. Opposite to the example of Jesus, modern Christians, even those who deem themselves to be part of this latter motion of God’s Spirit, are saving themselves rather than laying down their lives completely for the sake of the love of God. New age spirits are having a heyday with the ear tickling Christians in this very hour.
The Lord is building the true Overcomer into rank in the Army of the Lord. That is indeed the true reward, the true inheritance. Here is a description of what is going to take place. The Lord will appear in full glory and in the brilliance of His glorified body to these who have overcome. Suddenly this shall be. And these will be glorified with Jesus, raised from the dead, no more any sinful nature or duality shall be in them, but as complete new created people these FEW will begin their march. Their march will be more fearsome than anything seen before. There has never been nor will there ever be seen in the world of men the Army which will be in that day. These will march forward and they will destroy EVERYTHING that man has built. Not one thing of the initial building of men will survive the march of this Army. And any army of men, any force of nature, any bomb or bullet or flame thrower or munitions of men will effect them in any way. No shot fired at them from a gun will cause them to have any effect, for these will be in bodies which cannot die. The march of these who are glorified with Jesus will end completely what man has built. And this is not just wishful thinking, this is part of God’s overall purpose. Jesus who left this world, is coming back, and He is coming back as an uttered voice before His camp, and His camp is very great.
Man has built again this
1) It is built by men making a name for themselves because of worldly wisdom.
2) It is built by men making a name for themselves because of tickling ears.
3) It is built by men who make a name for themselves by the invention of new doctrines which bypasses the cross.

“I saw then another mountain,
one high and lifted up, created not by the rocks and stones and foundations of
the structure of the earth, but a mountain created by men for men and for the
cause of men. This mountain was the accomplishments of men in every area, in
governments, in economies, in social structures and the mores of society. I
also then saw the true Overcomers, hidden away by the Hand of the Lord. The
Lord began to arise in them and also before them, appearing as the risen Lord
to them, even though they were but a few. I saw then that those who formed the
company of Moses withheld from the North American continent the rain. The Lord
sent to the continent of
