Chapter #17




The Liguire Stone - Behold He Cometh In The Clouds


EPHRIAM.... The seventh manifestation of GOD as HIS names are revealed. This is a FRUITFUL BOW....(Son) whose BRANCHES (Daughters) run over the WALL....

He who does not sit in the confines of denominations, but as SONS and DAUGHTERS breaks free to become fruitful....He shall be the DOMINION of GOD.


Liguire....Time and Dimension....(deep yellow). It attracts light particles.


JEHOVAH NISSI.... The LORD our BANNER....

A standard, a signal or warning.... To let the enemy know.... God will ADD time and dimension.... HIS banner will attract and draw men to it...

Isaiah 11, Numbers 27:1-11.


This manifestation is a BRANCH with SEVEN branches on it. It shall have a double portion; shall be of quick understanding, drawing light unto itself. Shall not judge by the SIGHT of its EYE (intellect), nor decide by the HEARING of the ear.

With RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE He shall judge....He shall smite the earth and the oppressor with the rod of His mouth....


He shall stand as SIGNAL (ensign) to My people. In this DAY ADONAI shall deliver His people from the second time. He will raise up a BANNER, a sign, a signal, a warning, and assemble the outcasts of ISRAEL, gathering all those who have been scattered and bring EPHRIAM and JUDAH together to appoint one Head.

With this BANNER, God is going to bring JUDGEMENT and restoration. 


From Adam Clarke’s Commentary:

“LIGURE, לשם leshem, the same as the jacinth or hyacinth; a precious stone of a dead red or cinnamon color, with a considerable mixture of yellow.” End Commentary

           **************************

 

In this hour there are two prominent themes in the masses of Christianity. Both themes are using two words or phrases that are totally unscriptural. Not only are they unscriptural, but serious study of the scriptures will show that the doctrine behind them is also equally unsound.


The two terms are “The Second Coming of Christ” and “The Rapture of the Church {Or just the word “rapture”} ”.

Both of those are not found in the Word of God. But they are religiously held as “hope” by all the denominations.

 

There is no such thing as THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST nor is there going to be a catching way or RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH or as some think, THE BODY OF CHRIST.


In this study of the Stones of The Royal Ephod, we have come to the row which is complete on the High Priest’s attire, but are missing on the false Ephod that is upon Lucifer. This stone, the Liguire, represents to us the coming of the Lord as the hope and Joy of all nations.


In Christendom today, and in the denominations, all their doctrine and hope is laid upon the coming of the Lord as was promised in the gospels. The thought is that when the Lord comes, they will be caught away and the world and all the nations in it will be left to “the beast” or if you will, “the antichrist” or the anger of Satan. This coming that holds them entirely in their hope is known as “the rapture” which will occur at the second coming of Christ, both unscriptural but which are in this hour the main doctrine and the most powerful doctrine of all time. To enforce their doctrine, they have branded various denominations including Catholicism and those who don’t obey the letter of the Old Testament Law as the ones who will miss out on God and what God will do. These denominations are called the beast or the antichrist assemblies or many other such things.


I assure you reader, God is not going to abandon this world nor anyone in it. But He will bring correction through judgement.


When one comes to God to seek God for HIS LIFE to be all that is in them, the first thing that happens is they are set into a processing. This processing if responded to correctly and if it is not branded as some sort of motion by a demon or satanic spirit will cause that person to be put on a path of cleansing. I have seen some come to God in years past who wanted all God had for their lives, then when God put His finger on something in their lives, they claimed they were being attacked by the forces of evil. That “Satan” was after them when in fact God was placing His finger on an area of their lives that they needed to submit to His dealings. Their discernment as to what is the Spirit of God {I sometimes call this The Spirit of Truth} and the spirits of delusion and discord are somewhat mixed. They cannot decide what is of God and what is not of God immediately after they decide to walk in TRUTH. To overcome this confusion, one must come to a place wherein they make a covenant with God to “put” them in truth and to “keep” them in truth no matter what the cost.


But if that very first hurdle is overcome in them, then the next step is the breaking down of all doctrines and barriers to pure truth. It is amazing how God comes to destroy all that is of the doctrine of Christendom in someone who wants to get “close” to God. Not only is all their doctrine discomfited, but they find that they must learn again the foundational doctrines of Christ.


“Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. And this will we do, if God permit. Hebrews 6:1-3

It is not my purpose in this writing to explain The Second Coming of Christ according to true doctrine nor to refute the notion of the rapture. Suffice it to say for now that these will be covered by the Lord Himself if a person comes apart to seek His face ALONE in their closet of prayer. The first thing a person will realize if they truly seeks God is that God removes from them any thought of a work being done elsewhere, and that what God is going to do will be done HERE ON EARTH. Jesus said that it would be the wicked that would be removed, the righteous would remain to inherit it.


“Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.” Psalm 37:34


“Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”                         Matthew 24:40-44 {**NOTE** The one taken in the above passage are the wicked, not the righteous!}


There is not going to be a rapture. The term - The Second Coming of Christ - is not in the bible at all. But this is!


“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. “              Hebrews 9:28


“And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”               Acts 1:10,11



His appearing HAS BEEN - WILL BE - and SHALL YET BE.


But the coming of the Lord that I see in spirit and in reality HERE on the earth is typified by the Liguire Stone. It is the coming of the Lord as ONE MAN, a CORPORATE MAN from Heaven’s Throne to the realm of this earth, wherein the natural creation will be swallowed up into the spiritual creation and the natural creation will come once again into an “Edenic State”. The only one exalted in this appearing will be Christ alone, in HOLY MYRIADS OF HIMSELF.


“It was of these people, moreover, that Enoch in the seventh [generation] from Adam prophesied when he said, Behold, the Lord comes with His myriads of holy ones (ten thousands of His saints)

To execute judgment upon all and to convict all the impious (unholy ones) of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed [in such an] ungodly [way], and of all the severe (abusive, jarring) things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.

 These are inveterate murmurers (grumblers) who complain [of their lot in life], going after their own desires [controlled by their passions]; their talk is boastful and arrogant, [and they claim to] admire men's persons and pay people flattering compliments to gain advantage. “         Jude 14-16 AMPLIFIED


The Lord IS COMING but His comings WILL BE IN AN OVERCOMING PEOPLE. It is IN THEM that the Lord will appear and EVERYONE WILL KNOW IT. This company of people that are ON THE EARTH at the time of Christ’s unveiling will be GLORIFIED in GLORIFIED BODIES. They will come FROM THE THRONE for they will have learned in their processings that THEY ARE SEATED IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST.

THIS IS THE “TRUE” RAPTURE.


“And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus (the Messiah, the Anointed One).” Ephesians 2:6 AMPLIFIED


There are two things about the Liguire Stone that stand out to me when I view it upon The Royal Ephod.

1} That God comes to JUDGE THE WORLD IN RIGHTEOUSNESS

2} That God comes IN A PEOPLE as ONE MAN to bring forth the desire of All Nations.


The name of God upon this Stone is Jehovah Nissi, The Lord our Banner. But not just a Banner over a Glorious Army, but a declaration of THE TIMES OF THE RESTITUTION OF ALL THINGS. This is now the time wherein great relief comes to mankind through the coming of the Lord - through an Overcoming Company of Sons and Daughters.


Note what will happen in the world. The hope of denominational circles will fail at the revelation of the Glorified company of Sons. Instead of being left however with no hope, they will see the finished handiwork of God upon those who have conquered all things in their own lives and will stand in awe at the Glorification of God’s Army. The doctrine of the rapture and the 2nd coming of Christ will fall to the ground unfulfilled when God moves through His troops to bring forth the long awaited promise of the restoration of all things.


Thus we now have the beginnings of two mysteries. The Mystery of His Will and The Mystery of Israel’s Blindness. For it is God’s will that creation see His fullness SO THAT creation, and man in it CAN FINALLY BE IN THE COMPLETE IMAGE OF GOD. And the mystery of Israel’s Blindness, which will now become part of the suffering of Christendom during the age that is coming. Both will be covered in the Mystery Studies at a later date, but for now we will understand that it will work towards total restoration of all things.


The lack of the Liguire Stone on Lucifer’s Ephod happened that way BECAUSE THAT IS HOW GOD CREATED THIS LACK. {Covering - “Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Ezekiel 28:13}. Adam was created perfect until iniquity was found in him. “Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.” Ezekiel 28:15 {Please read The Diamond on the previous writing. }

 

Those of the shortened Ephod which lacks the Liguire cannot fathom that they will be subject to the judgement of God. How can that be - they would state? For we sit “perfect in our doctrine and in our calling”! Those of this Ephod, lacking this stone believe that they have escaped the world and are abiding in the very same escapism doctrines. They believe that they will bypass the terror that the world will endure and they have invented doctrines which will cause them to escape and be in a “special place” in God or because of their assemblies. There is no thought in them that God will in time restore all things and they have set themselves up as those who will be the bride of Christ according to what they perceive are His promises to them. Revelation 19:9.


But judgement begins at the house of God! “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 Peter 4:17 The sole difference between the Overcomer bearing the Liguire Stone and the Lucifer assemblies who do not is that the Overcomer has submitted themselves to the judgement of God! That is how they overcame all things and were seen as a part of this Army of the Lord. They yielded to God’s Judgements. Lucifer will not. His mentality is that of escapism. The entire lack of the Liguire on Lucifer’s Ephod speaks of SELF PRESERVATION. Whereas the Overcomer lays down and denies their lives, takes up their crosses daily and perishes as to their lives in this world, the bearers of the false Ephod do not. They invent doctrines of escapism which will cause them to bypass any of the deep inner dealings of God in their lives. Escape doctrines such as the Rapture and The Second Coming of Christ. They re-enforce these doctrines by their fellowships, agreeing one with the other until they are convinced that their doctrine is scriptural and secure.


It is these very escapism doctrines that make them think that God will not come forth to restore all things.
