Gideon And The Army

 “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”    Matthew 7:21


“Boys (lads), it is the last time (hour, the end of this age). And as you have heard that the antichrist [he who will oppose Christ in the guise of Christ] is coming, even now many antichrists have arisen, which confirms our belief that it is the final (the end) time. They went out from our number, but they did not [really] belong to us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us. But [they withdrew] that it might be plain that they all are not of us. But you have been anointed by [you hold a sacred appointment from, you have been given an unction from] the Holy One, and you all know [the Truth] or you know all things. I write to you not because you are ignorant and do not perceive and know the Truth, but because you do perceive and know it, and [know positively] that nothing false (no deception, no lie) is of the Truth. Who is [such a] liar as he who denies that Jesus is the Christ (the Messiah)? He is the antichrist (the antagonist of Christ), who [habitually] denies and refuses to acknowledge the Father and the Son.” 1 John 2:18-22 AMP


“Then Jerubbaal, who is Gideon, and all the people that were with him, rose up early, and pitched beside the well of Harod: so that the host of the Midianites were on the north side of them, by the hill of Moreh, in the valley. And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people that are with thee are too many for me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel vaunt themselves against me, saying, Mine own hand hath saved me.” Judges 7:1-2

Gideon’s name meant “He that bruises or breaks, a destroyer”. He was sent as the 5th judge of Israel to bruise, break and destroy Baal who was supported at this time by Jerubbaal who was a representative or priest of Baal. In this scenario in Judges chapter 7 Gideon is sent to destroy the Midianites who were arrayed in formation against Israel in an outward fan from the well of Harod. Harod was the place of a great expanse, a large place, a field in a valley is it were wherein much was contained. So Gideon is here at Harod with his army of over 32000 men.


In this hour we have come to the wells of Harod. It is a fearsome thing for I see by the Spirit that we have come to a great and a terrible time. This writing on the Tabernacle of God is a fearsome writing for by it you will surely measure yourself to see if you be in obedience to the Lord or to see if you will indeed fall away.


In this study I was going to begin to study the structure of the Throne of God, the feet of that Throne the braces, the base and elements of it that supports the weight of God. As the study was being contemplated there came to my mind the understanding that the discernment of that which is antichrist in this world is sorely lacking. There is much speculation on that subject, but the actual understanding from the Spirit of Truth is missing from the Body of Christ. Not only that, but many of the Sons of God who come to the Lord to appear before Him as He sits upon His throne are actually coming before the antichrist, and not the true Christ. Before a lying entity and not God in truth. They come and worship and receive instruction and doctrine from a spirit that is not the Spirit of the Lord.


I have warned repeatedly in the studies past and in the Ephod studies that there is an entity called “The Son Of Perdition” which looks, acts, talks, walks, has power and glory and moves JUST like the Lord and looks EXACTLY like the Lord. What amazed me is HOW FEW READ THAT. Now when I was contemplating the Throne of God in the midst of the New Jerusalem the Lord once again revealed to me that there is a false viewing of the Lord upon this Throne and there is in our very hour a spreading forth of vanity and pride in the company of Sons and overcomers who are falling short of the will of God in the scriptures. There are those in our midst who are erring very badly and who are falling away into complete darkness and are becoming depraved of spiritual understanding. Their discernment is off, they are not seeing true light but false light and they are misleading God’s true people into realms of darkness and separation. All this is being done BEFORE the Throne!


There is in our hour a great falling away. This falling away is unto delusion and false doctrines based in scriptures but twisted by carnality and by the minions of hell who rejoice when a child of the King does not have their helmet on securely with a strong chin strap! For the minions of hell have been given full permission by God to deceive the world and to lay the world, including those with faith, into realms of deception and discord which cause heartache, sorrow and a severe lack of purity. And the minions of hell work hand in hand with two things in God’s people.

1)     They work with those who have a ‘desire’ for God and His word to deceive them so that these will by that desire become off tracked.

2)     They work to ADD TO THE SCRIPTURE AND TO OUR HOPE the elements to make truth ERROR.

So the Lord stopped me from studying the structure of the Throne to studying what exactly it is that some of the Sons of God are viewing when they look AT the Throne. And I dare say that they are viewing the ANTICHRIST. They are not viewing God in truth, but the false god in error! Some of the Sons have done one simple sin. They became “passive”. This passivity led them to great error.


I am speaking of those who have heard the call to overcome and to conquer and to put down in their own lives all rule, power and authority. Those who have come high in understanding and in the Spirit and who knew at one time the voice of the Shepherd speaking in their hearts. But then because of passivity they skewed off the right straight and narrow path and have ended up looking at a false Jesus who is not the Living resurrected Christ. I am now going to show you these and to warn each reader who reads these papers of the malady now facing us in this very hour. For there is a great falseness taking place, one which I was mystified to find an answer for and to hopefully fix. In attempting to fix some of these doctrines prophetically or by the scriptures themselves I found that the results were totally futile. And once, not long ago the Lord spoke to me to quit for I had lost the war. I did, and the falsity of false worship and of the spirit of antichrist is only reinforced and growing in those thus deceived.


The Lord revealed to me that the story of Gideon in Judges chapter 7 is the story of this very hour. That Gideon is a type of the Army of the Lord who is called to destroy Baal, or if you will, to conquer in the world all things. The Midianites happened to be the targets of Judges 7, but in our day, it is anything at all that is outside of the will of God in pure truth and holiness.


Let’s look deeper at what these verses mean to us.


“Now therefore go to, proclaim in the ears of the people, saying, Whosoever is fearful and afraid, let him return and depart early from mount Gilead. And there returned of the people twenty and two thousand; and there remained ten thousand.”       Judges 7:3 KJV


So 22,000 left Gideon’s side. These are those sons in this hour who are afraid of bearing full to the end the power of the in-worked cross in their lives. Who were finding “shortcuts” to the cross. Who would bear this cross only thus far and no further. These invented doctrines which stated that there is no more old nature to overcome, that carnality and sin are not an issue with God and that the Mystery of Iniquity does not apply to them because they cover this up with OVERBEARING DOCTRINE. They take the doctrine of being in Christ as a New Creation and they go one step too far stating that because of this, THEY HAVE NO PERSONAL INIQUITY. The fruit of this are lives which state that they are THE CHRIST, that to see them is to see Jesus. That to know them is to know only that which is NEW and of THE NEW ORDER IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Nowhere can I see that as we abide in bodies of flesh and blood that the cross is over. The “fearful” part of this is that they lay down the denial of self and they return so that no effort needs be made to deny themselves daily, take up their cross and follow Jesus. They depart from Mt. Gilead which means “heap, or mass of testimony”. 


Now there is good testimony and there is bad testimony. Good testimony would be words of comfort and encouragement which builds up the faithful to know that God is with them in spite of their trials. That even though they bear the cross in this world, they are enjoying the presence of the Lord. Bad testimony is when a doctrine is pumped up beyond what it is meant to be and it is shared as though everyone was to know it and believe it and walk in it even though it is an OVER EXAGGERATION OF THE TRUTH. For the minions of hell and the carnal mind will always seek an easy escape route from the cross. The lips of the scorners will always tempt you to come down from the cross in your life by taking an easier route, such route Jesus did not even consider for Himself. So these ones with “itching ears” are sons and overcomers who heap new doctrine through certain key Kingdom ministries in this hour who promote a high standing in God and who do not deny any further their own carnality.


“And the LORD said unto Gideon, The people are yet too many; bring them down unto the water, and I will try them for thee there: and it shall be, that of whom I say unto thee, This shall go with thee, the same shall go with thee; and of whomsoever I say unto thee, This shall not go with thee, the same shall not go. So he brought down the people unto the water: and the LORD said unto Gideon, Every one that lappeth of the water with his tongue, as a dog lappeth, him shalt thou set by himself; likewise every one that boweth down upon his knees to drink. And the number of them that lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, were three hundred men: but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.”                                                                      Judges 7:4-6 KJV


The next group to be whittled off of Gideon’s army were those who lost their defensive position. They were divided into two groups. The group who dropped to their knees and drank right out of the water with their mouths right on the water, with their heads down, they were cut off. Only 300 remained who either held the water in their hands to drink and lap it or lapped it while on their knees albeit still holding it up to their mouths. For if you put your head down in this walk and do not keep yourself erect and true and wearing the full weight of your armor you will not be in the final 300.


The ones that lost here represent in our hour those who have abandoned themselves to receiving every single doctrine, word, measure of grace, measure of “new” things and anything in the spirit at all without FIRST TESTING IT. They TRIED NOT THE SPIRITS TO SEE WHETHER THEY BE OF GOD OR NOT. With glee these ones accept every “new” revelation that comes along as being a new revelation somehow hidden in the Lord and now because they are “special” they get to have the “new” thing. Gleefully with the giddiness of ignorance they band together into groups and meetings and gatherings and conferences and they build themselves up together, confirming to one another amongst themselves that what they have received they received from God and therefore they are “special” and to be “envied” because THEY are the selected ones to receive the highest prize. How contrary to Jesus who said that the greatest among you would be your servant!


These ones who are cut from the Army here who lost their defensive position look square into the face of the antichrist ( The son of perdition ) and they think it’s the Lord. All the while they are getting more and more revelation from this one who sits on the Throne AS God but is NOT God. For there is the I AM THAT I AM that Moses met and there is the I AM AS GOD that the Apostle Paul warned us about. Alas, but I hate to say it, this is not talking about denominations and those who hold the truth in kingdom building efforts, but these are those RIGHT FROM OUR VERY RANKS. Those who knew the anointing of God to break every yoke and to hack off every fetter of iron. These ones cease to wear the Armor of God used for both defensive and offensive warfare. Their swords have become rusty as they set aside scripture for conjecture and the Word of the Lord for fallacy. Doctrines come forth from them that Jesus is now in EVERYBODY and that NO ONE is outside of God. It is true that God created all people but it is equally true that not all people are SONS OF GOD. These have bypassed being born of the Spirit, have concluded that Christ is in everybody and it is now NEW AGE. For this is NEW AGE DOCTRINE infiltrating those who cast off discernment by the sword and who do not don continually their armor!



Now listen to my words. I am about to prophesy to you the reader of these pages. My prophecy will be inside these brackets, ({[ and end with ]}). All that you read in those particular brackets will be Kenneth B Visscher prophesying UNTO YOU.

({[ Those who are gleaned off of the picture given to us of Gideon’s army WILL NOT BE A PART OF THE MANIFESTATION OF THE SONS OF GOD. They will MISS TOTALLY the coming of Christ to manifest and glorify HIS OVERCOMERS. )}]


And I will now prophesy further.

({[ There is fast approaching a time when God will not strive with these who were called to overcome to repent of their false walk. For the day will come when they will be cut off and they will not be part of the finished work of the cross in the lives of those who finished their courses. They will not be as those who overcame even as Jesus finished His course as the pattern son and overcame and was granted the right to sit with God upon His Throne. These who obey not the Lord in bearing their crosses of self denial and who allow themselves to be deceived by antichrist will not finish their courses and will not come into their calling. )}]



Here is what will happen. These ones I speak of, these who look at antichrist thinking it is Christ will be given a portion with the denominations and the rest of humanity to be taught the first principles of the doctrine of Christ. They will be found during the time of the Kingdom of God on the earth outside of the New Jerusalem still coming to the place of entering the gates through the processing of the lake of fire and brimstone. They will not be part of the Mount Zion. They will not be part of the living walls of Jasper. They will not be granted the right as overcomers to sit upon the Throne with Christ the 1st Fruit resurrection of them that slept. These are the ones who knew better, but fell into fallacy and every bloated and false doctrine. As a result, they will miss the prize of the high calling.


So the Lord stopped me from sharing the depths of understanding about the Throne because some are not seeing THE TRUE JESUS. How serious a matter this is!

Do not speak or believe or walk in this:

1)     That there is no more old nature

2)     That there is no more warfare

3)     That there is no more iniquity

4)     That we are already Christ in the earth

5)     That Christ is now in every soul on earth, every man, woman and child

6)     That we are without imperfection in our daily faith

There is probably much more, but those are the key elements which are EXAGGERATIONS of true scripture, for the carnal mind and the minions of hell will stretch truth just as much as they will shrink truth.


The Lord is the only one upon the Throne. We are told we are seated in Heavenly places in Christ, and we are according to NATURE, but in experience, where the real need is the truth is much different. We must walk TOWARDS our position AS the Lord brings this to pass in us. There is a definitive time when He will appear and it will only be in the picture of Gideon’s 300. So to view this any other way would remove you from the Throne of His ruling power.


God will have His way in His company of Sons, those who abandon fallacy and walk in purity. The 300 man army is a figurative number representing full maturity in WITNESS. Not a literal number, but figurative. Examine yourselves to see if you are bearing your cross for that is the key to knowing whether or not you are indeed walking in the Light of His Word.
