The Hidden Unveiling
... PDF Version
And though they found no cause of death in him, yet asked they of Pilate that he should be slain. And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a tomb. But God raised him from the dead: and he was seen for many days of them that came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are now his witnesses unto the people. And we bring you good tidings of the promise made unto the fathers, that God hath fulfilled the same unto our children, in that he raised up Jesus; as also it is written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee. And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, now no more to return to corruption, he hath spoken on this wise, I will give you the holy and sure blessings of David. Because he saith also in another psalm, Thou wilt not give Thy Holy One to see corruption. For David, after he had in his own generation served the counsel of God, fell asleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption: but he whom God raised up saw no corruption. Acts 13:28-37 ASV
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Genesis 1:26-31 KJV
<David's Psalm of praise.> I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts. I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works. And men shall speak of the might of thy terrible acts: and I will declare thy greatness. They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness. The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works. All thy works shall praise thee, O LORD; and thy saints shall bless thee. They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power; To make known to the sons of men his mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of his kingdom. Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. Psalms 145:1-13 KJV
( 2 Visions )
“Immediately I was caught up with the Angel and found myself standing at the end of the sixth day of creation. As the Lord then finished creating man on the sixth day I saw the Lord with His hand outstretched over the created earth, His right hand with the palm facing down upon that which He had made. After awhile the Lord then slowly turned His hand up, so the palm faced upwards. As He did a gathering cloud formed behind Him and He receded back into the gathering cloud with His hand facing upwards until the Lord was totally enveloped in the cloud and He could not be seen because of the thickness of the cloud. As this cloud enveloped the Lord as He withdrew from being viewed by His creation iniquity sprang up in the earth and evil began immediately to increase.”
( End Vision )
“Standing then upon the lower firmament I beheld the Lord above the clouds, hidden from view and from the eyesight of men who began to multiply upon the earth and who began to set up for themselves their own rule and authority. As the Lord lay hidden behind the clouds in the heavens I saw that He brought forth and instituted at the same time from the beginning of creation the mysteries of His love which worked in succession and in a repeated manner by His Spirit above the clouds. I could see the ages displayed upon the earth as though they were laid across in a time line from the creation of the world unto the ages which are yet to come. The cloud which shielded the Lord from being seen by man remained over the earth and the ages until our time. In our time the cloud dissipated and the Lord was clearly seen establishing His Kingdom upon the earth and in full eyesight of men. No longer hidden, His very person was seen and His nature including all mysteries was known by the nations which dwelt upon the earth. No one was left wondering who the Lord was for all men everywhere saw Him and with joy accepted His Kingdom which was now being built up upon the earth. It was from this time of His manifestation to men and then through the ages yet before us that this cloud of hiding was removed and the Lord was seen in holiness as the creator over all the works of His hands.”
As this age is drawing fast to a close and as we anticipate the dawning of the age of His Kingdom upon the earth, we note that the pressures of our time are increasing. There are many who have prophesied of destructions from nature and other forces all from the hand of God in judging the earth, tossing it to and fro in shakings and bringing all the works of men to naught. Many words have gone forth concerning storms, fires, earthquakes, floods, wars and rumors of wars, nuclear weapons, ungodly dictatorships, failing political systems, failing money systems, failing health, lack of foods or abundance of the wrong foods, pollutions and global warming, lack of love for the love of many due to increased iniquity is waxing cold. It is in this time we are in that the pressures are more than at any other time in history. In some ways history is repeating itself, however this time we have the added abomination of that one who imitates Christ, sitting in the temple of God as God saying I Am God. Into all of this we add in non- discerning believers of the gospel who are taken away by every fanciful doctrine and teaching that comes and thus believing in strong delusions which are based in lies. With itching ears we have multitudes of Christians as well as many in sonship circles falling away into deluded doctrines of every sort and the way of the plain narrow path is strewn over by the reasonings of religious carnal minds.
It is the Lord who is doing this shaking, whether by His Spirit or through the natural elements of nature or by the ungodly works of wicked men. The shakings are happening. However, I would like to add that the Lord will not leave this unbalanced. At the very same time He will answer this earth and mankind and all of that which He created with great mercy, great forgiveness for the sake of the atonement and a massive move of His Spirit during this time which will break forth in waves upon waves of national repentance amongst all the nations; hearts turning unto the Lord as though a great harvest were being gleaned. No one that has lived in this world will be exempt from this shaking and those very same ones who are not exempt from this shaking will also not be exempt from the restoration that comes by way of the mercies of the Lord. Every soul is a candidate in this time for this to happen. No one will be left in a state of being perpetually undone. All will be restored and all will be brought to holiness, for the Lord at the same time as judging this world and ending the ways of man will also bring that same man into absolute holiness. Even the holiness of His very person. You cannot have the shakings without also experiencing the mercy. You cannot experience the mercy without the fruit of mercy which will come in a transformation, and that transformation will end in absolute holiness. This is what is coming to this world. Do you see a wicked man in the earth? Do you see an ungodly nation in the earth? Do you behold much evil and the increase in lawlessness and wickedness at every turn? Are your newscasts filled with woe as to the day we are in? It is to that wicked person, that wicked nation, that nation which increases in lawlessness and perversion, those depressing newscasts and television broadcasts which speak of the negative power of this day, to all of these the shakings will come. To all of these will be the transformation from one humanity to another, even the pure holiness of the Lord in His very person upon each and every life.
So then the Lord will manifest His Army in the midst of this shaking storm. But He will also reveal through that Army not just His person, but the mysteries that these studies are all about. For the Army of the Lord will bring to naught anything left that has not been shaken, but at the very same time the greatest blessing upon mankind since the beginning of the fall, and that is restoration and rectitude in His Kingdom come. Not only will the Army of the Lord be seen by the nations on the earth as destroying all that is of the rule of man, they will also be seen with the full glory of His person, the mysteries revealed and the mystery of God being completed upon them as they march forward and run upon this earth in that day that is soon to dawn.
The Army of the Lord will come forth first in absolute holiness. But I dare say that the Army of the Lord will be two things in the day that is just before us.
1) They will be the most powerful force ever known in this creation. No Army before it will have ever had the power and force of this Army. Unstoppable and inviolable they will finish off the age of man and man’s forceful dominion.
2) They will at the very same time bring to all nations and to all the earth reeling under the duress of total loss the comforts of the hidden mysteries found in the holy Epistles. For upon them will not just the measureless glory of the Lord be seen, but also these mysteries written plain upon their lives as living testaments to the love of the Creator.
The Lord chose the fall of man as part of His greater purpose. In restoration circles we have believed that the greater purpose was the restitution of all mankind, that is indeed a true word, each soul bought by the precious blood that Jesus spilt upon Calvary. However I would like to add that part of the reason for the fall of this creation into depravity and distance from the creator was to reveal the hidden mysteries of the Lord into plain view. For this view of the mysteries of the Lord will be seen by all men at the same time upon the company of Overcomers who come forth in a glorified array that has not been seen since the resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ. The mysteries of the Epistles which find their roots throughout the pages of God’s holy Word are part of the reason for the fall. For when the mysteries of the Lord are openly revealed then all mankind will come into the light of understanding and the curse of the fall will end. All at the same time will this happen. The end of the curse, the revelation of the glorified Army of the Lord and in full view of all the open mysteries seen for all to behold. Not just to those alive on the earth at that time, but also to nations past and extinct, to men who once lived and died in this world. All men will awaken to behold this working of the Lord which will take place as sure as Jesus is risen now and sits at the right hand of God expecting till all rule, power and authority is brought beneath His feet, the last enemy being death itself until there is no more death anywhere in the domain of the living Christ. He expects a full harvest and that is exactly what He shall receive, a full harvest of those filled with the holiness of the Lord.
When the Lord allowed this creation to fall into the curse, He became hidden to it, a Lord that was present, yet seemingly absent. Right up to this present hour many of the Lord’s people pray and seek the Lord but for the years of their lives they receive very little in the way of words or revelation of His presence other than a small inner knowing He is there by faith in their inner man. This knowing that the Lord is present in them is sometimes small reward when a gruesome trial is assailing them. Such trials as are enough to harm seriously their joy when things seem to overtake them. I have seen trials afflict some people which are hard to understand as to why the Lord would allow such difficulties to come. It must be noted that the Lord is not absent from His creation, but rather our view of the Lord is clouded, obscured, blinded by the circumstance around us and by the deceptions we find in our own flesh. But He is there. The amazing thing is that in every instance that the Lord has moved in the earth, He moves according to the revelation of these mysteries written in the Epistles. That the Lord moves in accordance with them and the fact that they are mysteries say unto us that they are mysteries TO our understanding, not to the ability that the Lord has in motioning His Spirit towards His creation. This is important to note, that the mysteries are the mechanisms by which His Spirit moves. As He moves in the world to prepare the Overcomers for the manifestation of the Sons of God, He does so WITHIN the scope of these mysteries themselves. As He moves in them, the mystery of His Spirit and person is revealed albeit as lines upon lines. When the day comes for His full appearing and the coming promise of Jesus returning again, that motion of His Spirit will display in full intelligence the mysteries with no other question surrounding them. At that time the mysteries will be mysteries no more, they will be open revelations of the Lord and of His very person and more importantly, of our place in Him for eternity.
As an example of the mysteries working in the flowing of the Holy Spirit, I will lay out this scenario of a person born in sin and death in this world, then coming to salvation, then finally to enter the Kingdom of God. This will give you a type and a shadow of how these mysteries work. What I will do is write this down in a few points and in (brackets) write WHICH mystery or combination thereof are in operation. Please refer to the Introduction of these writings for the list of mysteries and associated scriptures.
Thus we see that the items in (brackets) are motions of the Lord’s Spirit in the past and future in His dealings with mankind and with individuals who chose to conquer all things in the name of the Lord. May the Lord quicken our step as we begin to study each mystery laid out in the holy Epistles.
