The Mount Of Olives


~ The New Jerusalem ~ COME UP HITHER

The Mount Of Olives
Part Three

Zechariah 14:1-12 KJV

1  Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2  For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3  Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4  And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

5  And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

6  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

7  But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

8  And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem ; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

9  And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

10  All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.

11  And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

12  And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

The most powerful ambition any true Son or Daughter of God has at this time is to be found ready and perfect at the coming of the Lord. This readiness and perfection is only worked into those desiring the Lord alone by the power of the Holy Ghost. Some are turned aside in this hour unto fables. For the enemy has come in like a flood and has deceived some in our midst. The truth of the gospel is that Christ is the redeemer of the entire world of men. No one will be exempt from this redemption. The trick of the minions of hell in their intelligent traps of deception is to either add too much to doctrine or to hide doctrine in religious effort. My heart longs to reveal the walls, bulwarks, beams and foundations along with the jambs and Gates of the New Jerusalem. However the Lord continues to pull me back to what WAS so we can see WHAT WILL BE.


At this present time the deception that is amongst the company of sons has been brought up before me yet once again by the Holy Ghost. And that is that the truth of the restoration of all mankind has been taken mainly from Colossians 1:27 which has been lifted out of the context of scripture into a fray like never before seen in our day. Here is that verse:

“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:             Colossians 1:27 KJV

So now there are Sons listening to a few Kingdom preachers who are saying that Christ is NOW in every man, woman and child on the earth. Not so. For if it were so there would not be such stringent requirements for man to enter by the Gates into the New Jerusalem where there is nothing that can defile. For just a few verses up in verse 21 we have this:

“And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled”                                                    Colossians 1:21 KJV

There was once a time when you were ALIENATED because you had WICKED WORKS IN YOUR MIND thus making you AN ENEMY OF GOD. You were not born in this world with Christ already in you! If you believe that, then you have fallen under the guise of one of the most powerful and subtle deceptions yet known to the Overcomers. For the enemy not only detracts, he adds! And he has added to this doctrine to make one think that Christ is now present everywhere. If that is so, then there is no further need for the progressive revelation of His Kingdom. For the enemy of God who is Satan has added to this doctrine of total restoration one small part of a sentence. That being that it is already done! It is not done, it is still a work in progress.


Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things. Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Acts 15:14-18 KJV

God is still working AT THE FIRST. He is still TAKING OUT OF THE GENTILES A PEOPLE FOR HIS NAME. Or if you will, for occupation of His Holy City. If Christ is now in everybody, then who is left to take out? And if everyone is taken out already, then who are the residue of the Gentiles that will learn to call upon the name of the Lord?


What has been stressed to me by the Spirit of Truth is that the Lord is still building up the lives of they who would overcome. He still has a ‘church within a church’. There is yet a small band, a tiny group who are in fact the mighty Army of the Lord. These are the few that form this fallen Tabernacle of David. These are they who shall in time know the manifestation of God in their mortal bodies without measure. They will FIRST BE CAUGHT UP TO WALK SOLELY IN SPIRIT AND IN GLORIFIED BODIES. These will then deliver the rest of the Gentiles and eventually Israel back into the life of God. One cannot be in the Lord UNTIL THEY ARE BORN FROM ABOVE. I know of some here in the town where I live that definitely know not God nor are they born of the Spirit. But some Kingdom preachers nowadays are attesting to these verses from Colossians and are mistakenly teaching that it is a done deal for everybody. NOT SO. God has ordained who will and who won’t be SAVED in THIS WORLD. But He at the very same time ordained that ALL WILL BE SAVED IN THE NEXT. So please note this at the beginning of this study, not all men have the Spirit of the Lord.


“And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?” Romans 10:15-16 KJV


“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.” 1 John 2:18-19 KJV

Now on to the study of the coming of the Lord. For Jesus will come, it is a sure as our salvation, He will appear for the sake of His church and to complete what He began.

The first few verses from Zechariah 14:1-3 above are poignant with meaning for those who are overcoming. In the natural we see the World War 3 probably beginning in the mid east around Jerusalem . But that is just speculation at this point. So then we would think that verses such as this attest to the condition of the world at the coming of Christ. I would rather not make a statement on that because there are thousands of opinions and thousands of explanations and no one really knows what exactly will happen. But when it happens, it happens! The fact is the Lord has promised to come and I believe it will be IN HIS ARMY. That we are the ones who are set aside, hemmed in, shut up in solitude, kept apart because of the working of God in perfecting us and preparing us for the full revelation of the coming of Christ. As I had said in just the one previous writing prior to this one, the Overcomer IS the mount of Olives. It is to us that His nail scarred foot will first descend and touch. It is our flesh from our spirit that creates this great divide of the mountain splitting in two. Forevermore the flesh nature will be GONE. What I want to concentrate on is the fleeing to the valley of mountains, to AZAL, before the great earthquake comes as it did in the days of King Uzziah of Judah . The coming footsteps of the King of Kings shall set a quake in the earth like nothing before, and it is IN THE COMPANY OF OVERCOMERS that this coming will be displayed. I want to show you AZAL.


To do this you need to see that the foot of Christ touching the mount of Olives creates a huge valley, it is this valley I wish to concentrate on because it is the division of flesh from spirit, death from life IN YOU. The valley creates a division which cannot ever be joined again. One end of this valley goes to AZAL, the other end the “former” and the “hinder” sea, or if you will, the residue of humanity! This coming of Christ in the lives of they who overcome reaches to the masses of mankind that are yet in duality or in a state of total death. This valley will be FULL OF LIVING WATER.


So now I will show you both ends of the valley created by Christ’s feet when He comes and descends to the top of the mount of Olives. The place of His ascension.


AZAL was a named place near the east gate of Jerusalem . In Hebrew it meant “adjoining”. Some say it means also “departed” or “ceased”. The understanding was that it was the gorge of a valley that reached the eastern Gate of Jerusalem so that anyone fleeing the city under a siege would go through that valley. The depiction of the coming of Christ cleaving the mount of Olives in two is showing this valley extended so that the escapee’s can have a place of refuge. In other words, those that flee to the valley of the cloven mount of Olives are FUGITIVES. They have escaped their captivity from the earthly Jerusalem . THIS IS A PICTURE OF THE ROUTE TAKEN BY THOSE WHO WOULD OVERCOME THIS WORLD AND BE PREPARED FOR THE COMING OF CHRIST. For we are fugitives FROM the world because we forsake it. And we are fugitives from the RELIGIOUS because we don’t’ bow to their shrines and idols. We are fugitives from POLITICAL LEADERS because we have no stock or weight in worldly matters and we care not for the process of earthly governments. We are FUGITIVES FROM ALL OF THIS. And to us is given the valley of escape, even to AZAL.


Now listen further, for there is a mystery in this which when understood will set your feet to dancing and your voice to great rejoicing. AZAL was a place named after a descendant of Israel named AZEL. They form the same name. AZEL is mentioned twice as having had 6 sons in this very location where the Overcomers flee to. This is one end of the valley.

 1Chronicles 8:38  And Azel had six sons, whose names are these, Azrikam, Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan. All these were the sons of Azel.

As the Lord began to open this up to me in my studies I was amazed. For out of this comes the prophecy of those who will come forth in the precise image of Sonship as THE LIVING CHRIST, each member joined vitally to it’s head, even Jesus Christ, each member becoming saviors in the earth. For the 5th son was Obadiah who’s writing was canonized in scripture as one of the minor prophets and who prophesied of the end of all flesh of Esau and of the dominion of The New Jerusalem and the Kingdom of God!

Here then are the names of the sons of AZEL.

~ Azrikam - help, revenging – “Set your negative experiences to positive ones which end up becoming the full weight of Glory in your eternal reward. A far greater exceeding weight of eternal Glory. Exchanging trials and testings for Rulership and Governing power.”   

~ Bocheru - the first born – “There is first the company of those who are deemed as 1st born sons of God. These however are the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. It is in these that Jesus Christ will first appear when He comes.”

~ Ishmael - God that hears – “It seems that the effectual answer to prayer and to God’s favor falls upon the lives of those who God has first chosen to display openly His Government, even to the corporate sons of God who will be manifested along with the Lamb of God in His dominion. These are the 144,000, not literal, but figurative.”

~ Sheariah - gate of the Lord; tempest of the Lord – “Interesting indeed is Sheariah for He does reveal the two aspects of Jehovah worked into those who fled to AZEL. The Overcomers in their walk with God learn to SEPARATE THEMSELVES unto God in prayer. They enter a state of solitude. But to them is given the right to enter the Gate of the Lord, the main entrance into the Throne Room of God when God comes to catch them up. However, they also at the same time will display the Terror of the Name of the Lord and the tempest that comes from that Terror will discomfit the masses of humanity that still abide under the fallen creation. They also judge they who hold the truth in unrighteousness, having a form of Godliness, but denying the power thereof. Two aspects of God’s working in giving honor to those who obeyed God and overcame the enemy of their souls.”

~ Obadiah -  servant of the Lord (Obadiah later prophesies of the Overcoming Army of the Lord) – “Nothing stated in servant hood can be separated from the testimony of Obadiah. For the Overcomer bears the heart of a bondservant. This heart guides them, possesses them. So it is they come on to the world scene as those who have been separated from the rest of mankind as servants unto Jehovah. For Jehovah dug around the Tree of Life in their souls and dunged it by their trials and experiences on the cross. Their sole purpose then is to judge humanity to end flesh and to bring about the Kingdom of God in the earth. Thus the descent and settling of the New Jerusalem.”

~ Hanan - full of grace – “The final son of AZEL. That grace will bring everyone to a full end in God. No one exempt. Nothing left undone. No one falling short of what God has best designed for them. The Gates of the New Jerusalem made of pearl are Gates of Grace, and by these those who are defiled are entering into the City of God because grace corrects their shortcomings.”

Now for the other end of the valley created by the touch of the foot of Christ.

8  And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem ; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

9  And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Amazing indeed the living waters from Jerusalem . Might I add that the Throne of God is SET in the New Jerusalem and under the threshold of that Throne flows living waters? Revelation 22:1. The Living waters that flow from the Throne of God and of the Lamb flow to the ‘former’ sea and the rest to the ‘hinder’ sea. They flow in summer and in winter. Oh the depth of the riches of the Lord, how unsearchable His wisdom and His ways past finding out! The former sea being mankind past, those who lived and died. The hinder sea being mankind still alive but in the throes of ungodliness, religiosity, political ambition, abiding under the mark of the beast, rife with flesh and in a state of demoralized decay. Man subject to death and dying. Two seas, one kind of humanity. The Lord Jesus coming in the lives of the Overcomer causes the division of flesh from spirit to reach even unto these two seas. In points of compass the former sea would in the natural creation be the Persian Sea , humanity in the east, the hinder sea would be the Mediterranean Sea , humanity in the west, either way, the sea represents HUMANITY DEAD OR ALIVE.


The true coming of Christ to they that overcome will constitute the true catching up of His Church to the Throne of God. All this in simplicity is the removal of our flesh nature completely and forever. We walk then in the Born again nature only. And to do that we receive Glorified Bodies. For the fallen creation relates to this mortal flesh, but the nature born from above represents itself to us with the new bodies the Lord has promised, even a body fashioned like unto His body, risen with the power of an endless life. These new glorified bodies we will exchange our flesh bodies for are wonderful. They look like us completely, yet they cannot die, age, hurt, or have any malady whatsoever effect them. With this body you can appear before or on the Throne with God and be walking on this natural earth at the very same time. The time that is coming will see the Overcomers in these bodies ON this earth, natural man repenting of everything to come into this same state of Glory.


The coming of Christ TO this earth is not to take away from the earth those who are of value to creation, but to fill creation with His presence. To restore all things. To redeem all things. It is through those who have borne the mantle of the Overcomer that this coming shall be, but through them the restitution of all creation shall take place. I prophecy to you that this is now just in front of us. I care not for politics around the oil industry, for advances in technology, for denominations prospering in a false prosperity, for governments and kingdoms rising and warring, for the progression of depravity. I care not for it at all because my eye sight is FIXED on one thing only, the COMING OF CHRIST. This coming WILL STOP THE WORLD IN IT’S TRACKS. Mankind will cease from their own way when the Lord pulls back the veil on those who have had the cleavage of the mount of Olives take place in their own souls. You are qualified to be one of these if you are simply enduring your testings. That is the only requirement, to walk faithfully through each thing in front of you, then God will reward you with His righteousness and Glory when He comes. Obey the laws of faith and purity and go through your trials, run through them with great joy for the end of your faith is right in front of you, the finish line is in sight, the Lord is coming, HOLD FAST DEAR OVERCOMERS!
