The Urim Stone - Light Arising
And thou shalt take two onyx stones, and grave on them the names of the children of Israel: Six of their names on one stone, and the other six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth. With the work of an engraver in stone, like the engravings of a signet, shalt thou engrave the two stones with the names of the children of Israel: thou shalt make them to be set in ouches of gold. Exodus 28: 9 - 11.
And thou shalt put in the breastplate of judgment the Urim and the Thummim; and they shall be upon Aaron's heart, when he goeth in before the LORD: and Aaron shall bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the LORD continually.
Urim Stone: “LIGHTS”. A flame as being denoted THE LIGHT OF GOD from THE EAST, for restoration of all creation will arise FROM THE EAST and move forward UNTO THE WEST until ALL CREATION IS CREATED BRAND NEW.
“For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matthew 24:27
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, 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. Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. Jer 31: 33 - 36
For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold, And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions. 2 Timothy 4:3,4 AMPLIFIED
Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first [unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come], and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition), [Dan. 7:25; 8:25; I Tim. 4:1.]
Who opposes and exalts himself so proudly and insolently against and over all that is called God or that is worshiped, [even to his actually] taking his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming that he himself is God. [Ezek. 28:2; Dan. 11:36, 37.]
2 Thessalonians 2: 3,4 AMPLIFIED
During the course of events in this world there is one particular malady that is playing itself out in the lives of God’s Overcomers. And that malady is the multitude of voices. Unlike the true trumpet that should sound a singular tone, there is a multitude of sounds that are being proclaimed with a multitude of teachings and words and doctrines from various realms of understanding. It is during this declaration of words to the Sons and Daughters of God that much confusion is being created. Certain “pet” doctrines are being emulated more than others and the result is that much has become very unbalanced in the light of the simplicity of the Gospel. An “overemphasis” is the result and the end of this is a severe departure from plain truth.
The Urim Stone means “lights”, which we understand to be progressive, both historically, and individually. However, there is a very wrong turn that has taken place in the lives of some of the company of God’s Overcomers. Some have wondered if I am too critical of the systems that claim Christian standing. But how can one be critical of that which they would be lukewarm with if they walked in agreement? I have seen by the Spirit a great falling away. Forget that this falling away is in Christendom, the falling away I am seeing is in the very lives of those who confess Sonship, who know the restoration of all creation, who know that God will manifest His Sons and Daughters and set creation free from the fall. Even in the company of those who deem themselves to have the hope of being “Overcomers”. Those who hold a deeper appreciation of God’s Word and have a greater depth in Christ than nominal Christians.
The Ephod IS A PERSON. Even a perfect picture of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AS THE GLORIFIED RISEN LORD AND SAVIOR. For it is one part of the pattern of the Tabernacle of Moses, and is part of the furnishings of that Tabernacle which instructs us as to the truth of God and the revelation of God to the Nations. This furnishing happens to be borne in person by the High Priest and is seen in its splendor by those who can discern such by the Spirit, and now, it is borne by Christ Jesus the Lord in Glory as a testament to His completed salvation. In this study, we are going to look at the Urim Stone alone as it lay opposite to the Thummim Stone upon the shoulders of the High Priest. And in looking it is my prayer that the eyes of your understanding may be opened to see the true light that now shines in the face of Jesus Christ.
There are two “I AM’s” in the scripture. The first “I AM THAT I AM” is God who revealed Himself as such to Moses. This is the true revelation of God to man. The second “I AM” is the one that says “ I AM “”as”“ GOD” and sits “AS GOD” in the TEMPLE OF GOD in HEAVEN. Even the seducer, this LUCIFER that I am speaking about since the beginning of this study! For there is a true light according to the “I AM THAT I AM” that Moses met and there is a light of imitation that is the “I AM AS GOD” that is described by the Apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2: 3,4. For the true light of God that shone from the foundation of the world also had an imitation, a seducing light which came from Adam giving it place in his life, even the beginning of carnality in “spiritual form”, even this light of a lie that came from the suggestion of the snake who lied to Eve in the garden promising that they would be “as gods” if they partook of the forbidden fruit.
Regretfully, the statement made here is a fact that many of the Overcomers are worshipping and following the “I AM “”as”“ GOD”, the seducer and NOT the Lord in truth! For this Urim Stone is testament to this very fact that there is “TRUE LIGHT” and there is “FALSE LIGHT”. And many of the Sons and Daughters of God are caught up worshipping false light! Even this lying entity that is puffing up knowledge against the true knowledge of God. It is my hope in this one writing to give you simple understanding of this and to show you the means test you must do to know if you are beholding the true or the false light as is warned in the New Testament by the Apostle to the Gentiles, even Paul.
God has allowed this to come to His Overcomers to test them, to see if any could discern
the rising of the Urim Stone within their Spirits. There is a false light I am seeing just as
there is the true light that now shines in the face of Jesus Christ. But we are in the time
when men are not enduring sound doctrine but are heaping to themselves teachers,
having itching ears so they may hear what sounds good to the palate, and to that which
gives them a “place” and a “name” with God. For the doctrines that have come forth in
the last few years of time in the company of sons has had two effects.
1} The doctrine that has come forth has: - “forgotten” the bearing daily of your personal
cross and of death to this world. The thought is that we have now entered this eternal
state of total victory and completed growth in our spiritual walk and therefore the
preaching of the cross, which the Apostle Paul gloried in, has been left aside.
2} The doctrine that has come forth has: - “also bypassed” the instruction for wearing
the Armor of Righteousness that The Apostle Paul described in Ephesians 6: 10-20.
Many of the Sons at this time are accepting all the writings and proclamations that are
coming from all sides as “truth”, when in fact many of these so called truths are not
scripturally sound at all, but rather are spin offs from basic doctrine.
For that is what the false light does. It adds, or detracts, from basic truth. False light will add just one more element to established doctrine to make it error, or it will detract just one small part from established doctrine to cause it to become another area of subtlety. Part of the problem we are having in this hour was the seemingly strong need for “new” revelation and “new” understanding in present truth. That God was in the business of revealing “new” things to us. It seemed that every paper that was sent out, or writing posted on the Internet was almost as if in competition to who would have the next greatest and newest revelation from God. Most of the “new” things that God supposedly revealed were never established in the early church in the book of Acts and were therefore not included as present true doctrine. These things of error came by the Sons speaking to one another rather than the Sons communing alone with the Lord in their closets of prayer. Much error is now in the midst of the Son company which the Urim Stone rises in testament against and which if we will not see this rising will cause us to miss God. For God is jealous over His people with a Godly jealousy!
Here are the two areas of deception that are hitting the Sons at this time. Both of these areas are being touted as common truths of knowledge as though they were “new” revelations from God when in fact they are skewed truths, off the straight and narrow path that leads to life. These proclaimed so called truths are being preached even by key Kingdom Ministries and are being sold out as common doctrine but they cannot be supported scripturally. Again, this is just a further extension of doctrine which has become commonplace, those doctrines being based on our “place” in God and in the restoration of all creation - the restitution of all things, which has led now to this error. It is my hope that the display of these errors will bring repentance to our walk so that we can indeed know the truth of the Gospel in simplicity and not in lukewarm acceptance.
These unscriptural errors are:
1} That we were with God in the beginning before the foundation of creation was
established and that we beheld God creating the world. That we agreed with God to this
creation and to our descent into a godless state so that we could experience redemption.
2} That somehow the “seed” of Christ is in every man, woman and child that is alive on
the earth at this time, in which that seed will germinate and grow when God ordains the
time for that to happen.
Both of those doctrines are areas of deception which have sidetracked the Sons in their walk at this time and have watered down and made lukewarm the truth of the Gospel. Not only so, but I also believe that the firm grip of these areas of deception will disqualify one for the prize of the High Calling of God in Christ Jesus. They lead to a skewed walk! Not a walk in simplicity and in the pure truth of the Gospel of Jesus!
There is a very simple means test to see if you are beholding the true light of Jesus or are following the light that looks like the Lord, acts like the Lord, talks and walks like the Lord, BUT IS NOT THE LORD. For the things I am writing about are the very things the Apostle Paul warned us about in the scripture verses posted at the beginning of this writing, that there would come this great falling away and this son of perdition would be exposed and revealed.
The problem that is happening in doctrine is really quite simple to explain, but keen discernment is needed to get past it to the truth of God’s Word. The time has not yet come that God is being fully revealed and preached in all the Gentile nations. For we still abide in Acts 15 wherein Simeon has declared God visiting first the Gentile nations to take out of them a people for His name. This work of God in visiting the Gentile nations is not yet done, it is still an ongoing process. When it is done, then the rest of the Gentile nations will seek after the Lord, for those whom God is taking out of the nations will be Glorified, in bodies which cannot die, and they will be revealed as the true Army of the Lord. Acts 15: 13-18.
There has been a “building upon” which has happened to established true doctrine. This
“building upon” is part of the extension of false light. A skewed path that has been
introduced to true doctrine. For there are two true doctrines, but they were “added”
unto, “built upon” by this which was just a simple measure that went “too far”. For that
is the work of the seducer, to take 99% of truth and add 1% of error thus contaminating
the truth of God’s Word, and this is the very thing that God revealed to the Apostle in
the early church as to what would take place in the last days of this age. Think not that
this cannot happen to the Overcomers! Indeed it can! For when we nurse a doctrine that
we hold as precious, then build upon it according to “future hope”, we can “add” to that
doctrine thus throwing it out of balance, and that is what has happened in our time.
The two true doctrines are based on the one commandment that Jesus said He received from Father, even LIFE ETERNAL. “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.
Here then are the two TRUE doctrines:
1} The doctrine of the restoration of all creation, including all humanity into the family of God.
2} The doctrine of God becoming All IN All according to 1 Corinthians 15: 20-28.
HERE ARE THE SKEWS AWAY FROM TRUTH THAT HAVE HAPPENED.
For 1}, the skew that has happened: - was due to the added element of the “seed” of Christ being in every man. NOT SO!
For 2}, the skew that has happened: - is that we PRE-EXISTED with God from before the foundation of the world! NOT SO!
Both are ADDED DOCTRINES which are in error! If you believe these skewed elements then you are looking at the false light! For that which started as true, ended as false! Exactly what we have been warned against in scripture!
It seems that those who reject the added elements to these two doctrines are more cut off and alone, not part of the crowd that is believing these recent additions. For these truths when alone do not detract from denial of the self life and bearing of the personal cross. Neither do they place man up where God is nor do they bring God down to where man is. The separation of Spirit from Natural is still intact. But when the added elements of false light are introduced, the cross suddenly becomes bypassed and man and God somehow had a similar past prior to the foundation of the world being created. This places us up where God was and is and brings God down to where man was and is! And that simply is the means test to see if you are viewing true or false light!
Just that simple introduction of false light caused such a great falling away. In this present time much of what is being proclaimed as truth is rife with “added” doctrine, “words of God” added to “truth”. And it seems as though there is NO LIMIT. Once, I heard a preacher say that God did not stop speaking when the last verse of scripture was penned! So then, how would one TEST this to see if God was speaking in added revelation to scripture? Since when does the scriptural standard have to be laid aside or added unto? What if my opinion and your opinion differed? What would test our individual opinions to see which one was true and which one was false?
The Urim Stone arises and witnesses to the YES of God in TRUE LIGHT. It arises in your Spirit as the Stone of the witnessing of “light”, not delusion or darkness. The false light will arise in your spirit the very same way as the true light! How can you tell the difference?!?!?! The false light SKEWS OFF SCRIPTURE. It ADDS or DETRACTS from established scriptural doctrine laid down by the fathers of this overcoming walk, people who have laid the foundations of our doctrine in pure belief, proven by the person of Christ. The elements of the two doctrines I have mentioned above are ADDED ELEMENTS, they are not ESTABLISHED ELEMENTS. If you were to allow the Sword of the Lord, the Word of God to discern your heart, those elements of the “seed of Christ” in every man and of our original pre-existence in God would fall.
Remember that in the earlier parts of this study on the Ephod that Lucifer had every precious stone as his covering. Even this carnality in man. Carnality empowered by the forces of the realms of principality and power. But Lucifer lacked the 3rd row of stones, the Liguire, the Agate and the Amethyst. But he does not lack this which would testify to the rising or falling of the light of God in your spirit! His is a FALSE RISING AND A FALSE FALLING. A duplication. A skewing off from the walk of truth. And this skewing off of true and false is working in those that give it place!
How do you know if the true Urim Stone arises in you? How do you know if the false duplication of this Stone arises in you instead? It is simple. Does it ADD or DETRACT from the Word of God? If it does ADD or does DETRACT then it is FALSE. For that which God has established and determined in the Heavens is the very Word of God which He has confirmed and tested and given to us in completion. The walk in this hour by the Spirit of “present truth” will still not detract or stray from the basic truth of God’s Word, it will not contradict or lay aside any portion of scripture. Anything in this very hour in which we live that comes to us in Spirit will be confirmed again and again by the scriptures which are rightly divided in truth by the Spirit of Truth. And the word of God does this alone - it Glorifies alone The Lord Jesus Christ as the Head of His body, even His ecclesia, those who are called out of the present disorder into His order!
The day will come when God will be All IN All. The day will come when Christ will be in every man. BUT THAT DAY IS NOT YET. If you state it is, you have viewed the false light arising deceptively in your soul! The false Urim, the false Thummim. The witness of these Stones falsely will cause you to be UP WHERE GOD IS AND GOD WILL BE DOWN WHERE YOU ARE. For that is the fruit of falseness, that God and man lose their division. The added unto doctrines are not sounded forth in scripture! They are not solid in their foundation, they are added elements that will not stand the testing of His Sword!
So to you who are following this imitation of the Lord, TEST YOUR WALK BY HIS WORD WHICH IS ESTABLISHED AND CONFIRMED AGAIN AND AGAIN. The interplay of good and evil is not yet done in the company of Sons, the Mystery of Iniquity is not yet fulfilled in us, we are yet in the throes of overcoming daily by taking up our individual crosses and following Jesus. Only when we enter Glorification will this process end!
It is my hope that you will understand the Love of God that urges me to write in this strong manner. It is that we would have a “repentant” walk. A walk based in humility. Jesus Himself kept His humility right to the end of His cross experience, to the end of His life in this earth in His natural body. That too is our portion. We are not yet at that place, neither is the world, where God is All IN ALL. But that IS our very hope! We are not yet in that place where His word is finished going forth, but when it does, it will bring the entire creation into a brand new day!
