Chapter #19




The Liguire Stone - The Banner Unfurled


“O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.

Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.

Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.

God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.”

                                                                  Psalm 60:1-6



Further on the Liguire Stone we have an even deeper revelation of the coming of the Lord to the Nations of the Earth. For that coming to happen, the Lord must first be revealed IN A PEOPLE. These people are those who have learned in reality the truth that their place in life outside of God is one of desperation, but then when they begin to walk in God once again, the personal dealings become prominent.


I wish to show you Jehovah Nissi, the banner over the people of God. This very same banner represents God’s completed work in them as well as that standard by which all the Nations of the earth will be judged, set free and will come to the Lord and into the Kingdom of God.


This banner is a DECLARATION as to WHO ARE AND WHO ARE NOT THE PEOPLE OF GOD. For this banner will only fly over the Overcoming company, the Army of the Lord. You will never see it wave in the wind of the Spirit over any other company of people.


This banner represents two vital things we need to know, these are not simply just “words” or a new “doctrine”. The banner represents two realms. The first being the earth, abiding under the curse of the fall, and the second being the Nations, those who are bound to death and decay who long to be delivered.


Here are the two things this Banner - Jehovah Nissi - represents to us.


1} The work of God in total and complete Holiness {In-worked Brimstone (Divine Holiness) } is accomplished in a people who have overcome all things and have nothing else left to conquer or overcome. They are glorified in glorified bodies and they will never die.


2} The banner represents THE END OF ALL THE MYSTERIES OF GOD that are listed by the Apostle Paul in the New Testament. The End of these Mysteries will set free creation {and the Nations, alive or extinct} to live completely in the New World, the 3rd World which I covered in previous writings.


The study of the Word of God in the life of an Overcomer cannot become in them just black ink on white paper. They must LIVE OUT that very word. In the scripture above from Psalm 60 we see that the people of God begin in a state of disarray, but end in a state of full salvation in Shechem and Succoth. Shechem in simplicity represents OUR LAND {the complete being or nature} , or OUR LIFE as it is presented to the Lord. The Land being your human life, coming to God for salvation to be cleansed and delivered of the Old Nature that came from our father Adam. Succoth represents the shining of the coming of the Lord from the East to the West. From the place from whence man departed from Jehovah to the place where man returns to Jehovah - or if you will - COMPLETE REPENTANCE.


{When we get into the next stone on the Ephod, the Agate, we will see that the Agate Stone represents an inward work done in the life of the Overcomer who allows the sword of the Lord to discern in them the variance of bone and marrow, flesh and spirit.}


When you read this writing, you may think “This is for the future, what God WILL DO in the earth at the Manifestation of the Sons of God”. But I want to show you that THIS IS PRESENT REALITY. The banner of Jehovah Nissi is over the Army of God, the Army of Joel chapter 2 and it is there NOW. True, the army and the individuals in that army are still in the throes of processing, but the banner IS displayed in a measure in them now and there is now a removal of the veil of death off of the nations by our simple testimony of the life of Christ within this company of Overcomers.


{Vision}

“I saw as this Army in Silver marched forward that they came to a place finally where the entire sphere of the Earth was covered and the Earth was now fully alive. And I saw the Nations, small and great, dead and alive, extinct and existing stand before this Army. And I saw the veil and the pall of death that was on them being torn off, not layer by layer, but completely as if it were one black sheet of death and darkness, and the Nations were delivered alive to occupy the New World which had been created by this Army’s mighty march.......And over the Army I saw the yellow banner of Jehovah Nissi...... {End Vision}


And in this mountain shall the LORD of hosts make unto all people a feast of fat things, a feast of wines on the lees, of fat things full of marrow, of wines on the lees well refined.

And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.

And it shall be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, and he will save us: this is the LORD; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.

                                                                                   Isaiah 25: 6-9



Right now, in this present lukewarm Christendom rich world steeped in denominationalism and cults and sects of every kind the Overcomer is abiding in simple truth, waiting for the Lord to finish His work in them. They have become a bad sore spot to Christendom. The denominations around the Overcomer hate their testimony. They do not agree that the Overcomer sees that the Lord will restore all things let alone that the Lord will do this through this small Overcoming troop. At the same time the Overcomer does never have anything but humility as to their high calling. The Overcomer is too busy running this race to win the prize to be proud about what they WILL become when God is revealed through them. They do not say to those in Christendom’s denominations that they are the “special ones” that God has set aside through whom He will reign as King over all the earth. They do not draw any attention to themselves at all. But in humility they seek that they may be totally obedient to their calling if that is what indeed gives Glory to the Lord, they seek not glory for themselves.


They follow Christ who made Himself of NO reputation.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. “

                                                                          Philippians 2:5-8


 And these ones, standing outside the walls of denominationalism are a bad sore spot to those bound by the systems of man. So then, those in the systems of man reject and cast out the true Sons of God at this time.


This is typified in the Book of Revelation 11:7 as we see the two witnesses {The Body of Christ in the earth} overcome and killed by the Beast. As well in Revelation 13:7 we see those tied to the beast as overcoming the Saints. The saints in both instances are rejected and cast out or aside. They do not fit the pattern the wild beast is creating!


And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

                                                                                                               Revelation 11:7

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

                                                                                                               Revelation 13:7


But it is over these rejected ones that God unfurls his Banner - Jehovah Nissi. And this same banner when displayed over this army will cause all nations, as well as the works and religions within the nations, to be destroyed. The vail of death that is upon the Nations will be destroyed by the display of the very NATURE AND NAME of Jehovah Nissi! And that is HAPPENING NOW ALSO. We do look for this to happen in a greater way in the future, but it is happening now BY THE PERSECUTIONS YOU ENDURE. By the rejection you partake of they are judged, by the persecution they put you through because they receive not your doctrine or testimony they become discomfited! The rejections of your person and the judgements that the Nations and denominations put you through fall back upon those who do so! In other words, NOTHING can be done to destroy this Army, even if for now it is still in training or remains in obscurity!


The most annoying thing that Christendom endures is the flat out refusal of a small insignificant Overcomer to bend and agree with their programs, doctrines or kingdom building efforts. It irks the denominations horribly that the quiet confident Overcomer won’t be a part of their plan. The little Overcomer won’t partake of their assemblies, their plans, their programs, their exaltation of denominational pastors and preachers, missionary programs and kingdom building efforts of every kind. But quietly and silently the little Overcomer stands outside the walls of their cities and bears Christ’s reproach, gladly accepting the inworking of the cross to cancel out all that relates to their life in this world. Yet it is to these little insignificant Overcomers that God unfurls His banner first, judging them, correcting them through years of chastisement and scourging, fitting them into that perfect place where they thrust not with shoulder nor compete for position, because the relationship the Overcomer has with God is LOVE, not love that is based on false programs and kingdom building efforts, but Love for God who is creating all things new.


The Liguire Stone on the Ephod of the Overcomer is proof of God’s inworking power. They know that they are being “marked” as the Army of the Lord, part of His rank and file membership which cannot pass away.


Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. Joel 2:8


Then later, the company of Overcomers, now fitted perfectly together by the working of the Spirit of God and by the revelation of His power in them has that banner waving in the winds of His triumphant coming. They come forth in perfection, in unity, in the full unbounded measure of God so that God alone is seen in them and at last, a true unified company is revealed as an army in perfect array!


***************

The lack of the Liguire Stone on the Ephod of Lucifer is proof that they have no part in the Army of the Lord and that they cannot ever have a part unless the individual within the Lucifer mentality repents of religious effort and asks God to prepare them also as Sons.


Lucifer does not want the banner of the Lord over him because Lucifer thinks that he is already the true and complete expression of God in the earth. The opposite is true. Because the Lord’s banner is not over those with the false Ephod lacking the Liguire Stone, Lucifer on his own volition, creates an army, but it is in complete disarray.

********************


When we get to the 3rd stone of this row, the Amethyst, we will see the deliverance of the Overcomer from INTOXICATION. And how that this INTOXICATION has overtaken all the systems of man, political, economic and religious. {Babylon}. There is during the study of the Amethyst first a revelation of God’s true assembly, then that very same assembly DISAPPEARING AND BEING SWALLOWED UP INTO THAT WHICH IS GREATER. That the final assembly seen in Creation is GOD HIMSELF as the final eternal temple in the New Jerusalem.


The second thing above I mentioned about the Unfurling of the Banner - Jehovah Nissi - was the COMPLETION of all the Mysteries of God.


Once the Ephod Study is completed I plan on revealing these mysteries as they were laid out by the Apostle Paul. Oh how we need men today who are like Paul, that mixed not the truth of God’s Word and the revelation of His Spirit with man’s traditions! For the unfurling of the Banner of Jehovah Nissi ENDS FALSE TRADITION.


False Tradition is one of the hardest pitfalls for the Overcomer to conquer. We see tradition in all we have in today’s society, everything from celebrating Christmas to perceptions concerning doctrine and Christian behavior. The banner of Jehovah Nissi will bring the Overcomer to TRUE TRADITION, tradition that was delivered to us by our elders.


“Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;

But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you, “

                                                                          1 Peter 1: 18-20


“Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.”

                                                                          2 Thessalonians 2: 14,15


Let me ask you. From what tradition did the doctrine of the rapture and the slanted doctrine called The 2nd Coming of Christ come from? It was NOT from the true tradition of the elders in the New Testament, namely The Apostles. The tradition that teaches the rapture or the 2nd coming is full of holes and the arguments around it are pure speculation at best. True tradition however covers one very important thing which finds its consummation in God becoming All in All. God is working in creation to restore all things to HIMSELF. The work was completed - finished - by Christ on Calvary, but now God is BRINGING IT TO PASS. The world has not yet arrived at that perfect place, and neither has the Overcomer, but we are closer now than we ever have been before. God has promised A NEW WORLD, a NEW EARTH with Christ reigning as King of Kings and as Lord of Lords over it and all of Creation including the constellations and The Kingdom of God. True tradition IS INCLUSION, NOT EXCLUSION. Religion excludes according to belief systems, but the life of God LEAVES NO ONE BUT THE SON OF PERDITION {The fallen nature in man} EXCLUDED and INCLUDES ALL. And this inclusion that God is doing will bring all Nations, and the glory of those Nations into the Kingdom of God.


Of the Triumphant Overcomer it is stated -

And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.” Revelation 15: 3,4

 

I saw no temple in the city, for the Lord God Omnipotent [Himself] and the Lamb [Himself] are its temple.

And the city has no need of the sun nor of the moon to give light to it, for the splendor and radiance (glory) of God illuminate it, and the Lamb is its lamp. [Isa. 24:23; 60:1, 19.]

The nations shall walk by its light and the rulers and leaders of the earth shall bring into it their glory.

And its gates shall never be closed by day, and there shall be no night there. [Isa. 60:11.]

They shall bring the glory (the splendor and majesty) and the honor of the nations into it.

But nothing that defiles or profanes or is unwashed shall ever enter it, nor anyone who commits abominations (unclean, detestable, morally repugnant things) or practices falsehood, but only those whose names are recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life.

                                                        Revelation 21: 22-27 AMPLIFIED BIBLE


The world at no time in it’s past has ever known true joy. The 1st World, which perished in Noah’s Flood, and the 2nd World which we are in now and which is imploding from within and is perishing by fire, has never known the Joy of the Lord.


But when this Banner is seen unfurled over this Overcoming company, over the lives of those whom the world had rejected, then TRUE JOY will come to the earth and to the Nations within it, extinct or alive at His appearing. Truly this will be the Joy announced by the angels at the birth of Christ that is yet to come. The Joy of Israel, the Joy of the whole earth. The banner by which the residue of the Gentiles will seek after God. The banner announces the brand new world, the brand new earth, the beginning of Christ’s reign IN PERSON IN A PEOPLE over all the earth. The Government of God without bound or measure but by which all men will be bound and all men in that binding will be truly free. True joy which cannot be undone, all because the Overcomer allowed God to perfect His will in them.


This banner is the completion of the mysteries. The completion of them, not their destruction, but their fulfillment! All the Mysteries from the Mystery of God to the Mystery of Iniquity to the Fellowship of the Mystery, all fulfilled at the unfurling of this banner represented in the Liguire Stone upon The Royal Ephod. The Mysteries are displayed as fufilled with this banner because there is nothing more to be revealed! The entire truth of God’s Word is expressed by the viewing of this Army, and it is because of them that the Nations of the Earth will come to submit themselves to the Kingdom of God. All the rulers of the Nations, the Kings and Queens, Lords and Princes will cast their crowns down in favor of the Crown of the Overcomer. This banner is the DECLARATION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.


And they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

                                                                          Jeremiah 31:34


The unfurling of this banner also represents perfection for all creation as to the ages that remain.

That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:7



{Vision}

The Angel then took me up in the spirit and I stood upon the Earth in the Lord’s Day, and I looked, and saw from the firmament above the earth the coming forth of the Army of the Lord upon white horses. And I saw the King of Kings and the Lord of Lord’s coming forth from the firmament above to the firmament below. Terrible was the sight of this army which came riding with a great noise and with the thundering of the horse’s hooves. Ever so quickly did this Army come.


And I saw Jesus.


And He was upon the first horse, a beautiful white steed with a flowing mane and tail that was the most beautiful creature I had ever seen. And Jesus was as He was wounded, with the scars of crucifixion upon Him. But He did ride as the Master of All, the one who did bring forth His answer to the earth He had redeemed by His blood. And I saw His robe and his thigh beneath His robe with the name written upon them, The King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.


And I beheld the Army that did ride behind Him, and they all also BORE THE SIGNS OF CRUCIFIXION. They were also wounded in their hands and in their feet. They too had been thrust to the impaled death upon the cross, but they also had ENDURED THE SWORD OF JESUS UPON THEIR PERSONS. The Sword of Jesus had finished its work in them for it had divided asunder the bone and marrow, the soul and Spirit, and nothing was hidden or obscure from His light and judgement, they had endured all the Judgement of God upon them.


And I saw beneath the hooves of the Horse Jesus was upon: the Agate Stone, the same Stone I had seen upon the Ephod, and understanding came to me, and I saw and beheld HIM THAT WOULD DISCERN THE THOUGHTS AND THE INTENTS OF THE HEART.

And there was from the contact of the hooves of Christ’s horse upon the Agate, lightnings and thunderings as the Horse did stride forward upon this stone.

And I saw that this discernment first had happened to those who had Overcome....... and I was struck with awe at the sight of this terrible army..............
