~ The Mystery Of The Faith  ~ Prepared By The Lord
....PDF Version
- MP3


Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. Hebrews 11:1-3


But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]. Hebrews 11:6 AMPLIFIED


Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding. At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. Daniel 9:21-27


And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 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. For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Matthew 24:4-28


You will then say to me, Why does He yet find fault? For who has resisted His will? No, but, O man, who are you who replies against God? Shall the thing formed say to Him who formed it, Why have you made me this way? Does not the potter have power over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel to honor and another to dishonor? What if God, willing to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much long-suffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction; and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy which He had before prepared to glory; whom He also called, not only us, of Jews, but also of the nations? As He also says in Hosea, "I will call those not My people, My people; and those not beloved, Beloved." And it shall be, in the place where it was said to them. "You are not My people; there they shall be called sons of the living God." Isaiah also cries concerning Israel, "Though the number of the sons of Israel is as the sands of the sea, a remnant shall be saved. For  He is bringing the matter to an end, and cutting short in righteousness, because the Lord will make a short work on the earth." Romans 9:19-28 MKJV


Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.  Galatians 5:19-26


For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee. And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedek.  Hebrews 6:13-20

(2 Visions)

(1st Vision)

“Then beholding the Holiest place of all, even the position of the Throne and the Lord upon the Throne, even in the Holiest part of His Sanctuary, from there did I behold the HOLINESS of the Lord God Almighty, even the Ancient of Days. He did sit in the midst of the Throne consumed with billows and waves of fire which enfolded in upon itself, fire so mighty that there was nothing before it that was not utterly consumed, nothing before this Holy Fire that was not completely and utterly taken in by the fire, purged, purified and made HOLY as HE WHO SITS UPON THE THRONE IS HOLY. This fire was even the Ancient of Days, Holy, completely all that the spirit of the Lord is and is nothing short of His complete person as LORD. Before Him lay the Tabernacle, the pattern and the vessels and instruments. These same vessels and instruments were gathered up before the Lord and brought into the billowing flames and purged, purified, cleansed, and stripped of their dross and their clay. Then to the right of the Throne were the vessels and instruments laid in order although they looked as though they were gathered in a heap. As I looked at the vessels and instruments I saw that they were covered with the heat of the fire, they were all of them miscoloured, faded and tarnished even though they were clean. No clay was left upon them, but they were nevertheless tainted in coloration from the heat of the fire which had done the cleansing. This was the cleansing of the vessels and instruments of the Tabernacle. As they lay beside the Throne they began to cool and to remain with the view of being “unpolished” upon them. Before the Lord now was the rest of the Tabernacle and His fire then folded in upon itself and reached forth out unto the Tabernacle to cleanse it and to purge it and to strip it from its own filth and clay from contamination with the world. As the fire billowed out from the Ancient of Days the earth under the Tabernacle quaked greatly and the clay of the earth was burnt and disintegrated and became separate from the foundation of the Tabernacle which was upon it. So the earth then gave way and collapsed into utter ruin under the weight of the Tabernacle which was now suspended above the earth, but consumed in the fires of He who sat upon the Throne, even the Ancient of Days.”

(End Vision)

(2nd Vision)

“Beholding the vessels and instruments that where in a heap beside the Throne I saw that as the fire of His cleansing went forth into the Tabernacle, that the vessels and instruments, each one individually, had a swirling whirlwind of fire from within the center of it, even though the vessels and instruments remained cool to the touch, yet the same fire that was the spirit of the Lord rose up in each vessel and with the velocity of a whirlwind it did cleanse and purge away the DROSS that was left from the initial burning when the vessels were gathered unto the Lord. I saw by this that the dross of the first residual heat was now removed from these vessels and instruments and the purity of gold and silver and precious stones and their shapes did emerge with brilliance and beauty and with no filth of any kind upon them, but these vessels and instruments were now HOLY UNTO THE LORD. These are the vessels of the sanctuary of the Lord, even those after the order of Melchisedek, the Lord Christ who is made a High Priest forever and who intercedes forever on behalf of all humanity. This is a declaration of this order even unto the Overcomers who are these same vessels, once burnt and cleansed by fire, but now purified and made pure for the Lord’s use. The purpose of this cleansing and this alliance with the order of Melchisedek is so that the world of men may enter into the Kingdom of the Lord which will now come to this earth and to this humanity. These two visions were in present time, they are not future in their scope nor are they to be taken as that which has been, but they are to be taken as that which presently is.”

(End Vision)

All around us in the Christian world we hear sounds that do not hold true, sounds that are supposedly those of the witness of the spirit unto the Christian world about the ‘soon escape’ of those who trust in Christ out from this present evil world. But this sound does not find place on the ears of the Overcomer. The reason is that the Overcomer, even in this late hour, is still following the pattern son Jesus, the same path that He took they take. The same realm of suffering He partook of is now become their portion. The Christian world today in this part of the world does not understand that the place of fellowship in the sufferings of the cross is equal to the fellowship of resurrection at the very same time. Jesus suffered here in this real world, died within it and rose again. When He comes again He will not come all the way back to this realm once more, but will remain “above” all the powers of the air, those things which work in disobedience and rebellion to the pattern and path that Christ laid out for us to follow. We are not outside of this pattern if we understand that the fellowship of sufferings must continue along with the fellowship of being raised from the dead, we have both death and life still working in us until this hour. Keep in mind that the heavens must retain Jesus in His glorified body, “UNTIL” the times of the restitution of all creation. “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.” Acts 3:19-21


The biggest temptation we have now is the one Jesus first warned us of. If they say unto you, Lo, He is here, or Lo, He is there in this place or that place, BELIEVE IT NOT. This is the focal point of our walk at this time, to discard and not listen to anything that would cause one to GO somewhere to FIND the presence of the Lord or the action or motivation of the Lord’s spirit that some claim they have. Be warned, you cannot find the Lord in a “location” other than at the right hand of the Father. It is there that He remains UNTIL the times of refreshing (true revival, not the fake ones), happens when the Lord begins to restore all things. I believe however that we have now entered that very time. I believe with all my heart that the Lord is now reversing the order, that the decay that the world of man and the world of Christendom has descended into has hit rock bottom, that from this point on the Lord will now begin to move in this long anticipated refreshing. This writing however is a warning to each one who chooses to read it that the “refreshing” spoken of in Acts chapter 3 is still not based on location.


We have entered our jubilee, our time of being restored, but it is not what we think it should be, it is a gradual process, a period of time culminating in the first resurrection for those who are grains of barley. It is not going to be shared with everyone at this time but only for those who have been chosen from the foundation of the world for this appointed time by He who alone is the Almighty Sovereign. There is nothing you or I did to deserve place in the first resurrection, we were only responders to the motion of His spirit to walk higher in understanding and in a greater manifestation of suffering and then glory. Anyone who hears the call to be an “Overcomer” must also hear the call to suffering the full infamy and shame of the cross. In our day the entire gamut of our walk is overtaken with a very strong motion of the Lord’s spirit. In the Christian world they are anticipating the Lord to move strongly to “catch them up”, but for the Overcomer something entirely different is happening. For them the motion of the Lord’s spirit is severe, strong as the sharp edges of His sword, He is cutting them off again and again from everything and from everybody around them. The true Overcomer is being singled out, shaken apart, and taken away from all other leaning posts or doctrines of rest and relaxation. Instead they are being presented with hard judgments against their persons, a powerful cutting of the edge of the Lord’s sword, divisions away from those you never thought you’d ever be divided from and joining together with those you never knew existed.  Instead of the prosperous doctrine of being caught up to bliss the Overcomer is caught up into greater tribulation than ever before. This is the current state of the true Overcomer. They do not know which way is up from down nor do they understand which way is in from out. They are in a quandary, a state of feeling or being “empty”, the edge of the sword is what they feel unlike those caught up in escape doctrines and doctrines which pamper the soul.


Speaking prophetically, there is nothing right now in our lives that truly resembles the Lord except for two things, our patient waiting for Him and suffering in silence not always aware of the presence of the love of God in our lives. It is too bad that I must sound so negative, but warnings are needed more now than at any other time in our history, that we are not caught up in “looking” for Christ in some location or motion of spirit. He is not in any other location of spirit than at the right hand of the Father and the motion of spirit towards each and every Overcomer at this time is the edge of His sword in judgment; He is “judging us”.

This judgment seems strange. It is quite unusual to look at. Instead of unity and fellowship we are finding estrangements and separations. Instead of close ties that bind us together in Christian love we find ourselves singled out and left to stand alone before the Lord who discerns our hearts and thrusts us through with every form of judgment imaginable all to expose the hidden areas to His gaze. We do not see yet the measure of the perfect man into the full stature of Christ, but if we submit to this present judgment, we will see that perfect man. This singling out and judgment upon the Overcomer IS the necessary element to bringing us into fully matured faith and into the measure of being ONE in perfection and unity, or in the case of those who will be first raised from death, being made one in perfection and unity in rank and order in the Lord’s Army. It is HERE on this terra firma that all this must take place before we can even know what it means to ascend, but it is now going to happen. The sooner we submit to this judgment of isolation, the sooner we will experience the spirit of the Lord bringing us into true undividable unity one with another and in perfection.


Coupled with this judgment of the Lord is the permission the Lord gives to the spiritual authority on high, those powers of wickedness in high places to also assault and attack your thinking mind, to accuse you day and night continually before God. How opposite is that from those who lay wait for an escape? Rather than resisting the escape doctrine, we lay it aside and resist instead these assaults on our lives from these higher powers. These assaults that come to us are warded off by the armor of the spirit we bear while the Lord judges us. So then on one hand we have the Lord judging us continually and applying His gaze into the inner recesses of our very souls, and we have in our understanding the attacks of the minions of hell all to thwart our forward progress in the things of the Lord. The “air” we will be caught up into is the spirit nature of Christ in defeating all these powers which abide in that high place, that is the true rapture, and it will be definitive and real when the Lord brings it to reality, that will be the only “sudden” appearing we will know of. This will THEN be the end of the cross, NO ONE CAN CLAIM THEY ARE THERE YET.


I would mention that we are made to sit together in heavenly places in Christ as to JUSTIFICATION. But our SANCTIFICATION is what I am writing about. The SANCTIFICATION PROCESS IS ONGOING. Don’t confuse the two. Christ’s atonement has made you just and saved before the Lord, now the act of discipline in making one into a disciple IS THE ONGOING PROCESS OF FAITH IN THE INNER MAN. It is learning to “walk” in the spirit and not in the confusion of this modern world.


To sum up then this writing one must carefully examine the facts. We have entered into our jubilee, we have entered also into the sharper edge of the sword and the greater manifestation of being singled out, separated and judged by the Lord. We are also still in danger of looking for the Lord in some location. He is in ONE location, at the right hand of the Father, which is exactly where He is. The motion of His spirit in us right now is the continual stripping, processing, scourging and corrections daily that the true Overcomer endures. It is not yet complete! But it will be complete! It is going to then be the “sudden” culmination of the appearing of Christ to those who awake in His likeness and in the revelation of His person in them in fullness forevermore. At that point in time the Overcomer will share in His glory and will rise with Him in full triumph over all that has beset their lives until that time and perfect unity will be the result. This I have from the Lord. When the judgment is done, we will all see it end together, the barley Overcomers. The shaking of the barley sheaf which will be the first resurrection, the time is now before us.
