Chapter #11

The Carbuncle Stone – Continuous Revelation


“And I looked, and behold upon the Breast Plate of this High Priest from Heaven’s Love, the Carbuncle. And understanding came to me and my mind and my heart were opened, and Behold, I came to A CONTINUOUS REVELATION!”


ZEBULIN.....A dwelling place.... A training ground. A haven in time of storms (troubles).... A harbor. A continuous light for the safety of ships.
CARBUNCLE.... A continuous revelation....(light or life)


From Adam Clarke’s Commentary: “Carbuncle,   bareketh,  barak, to lighten, glitter, or glister; a very elegant gem of a deep red color, with an admixture of scarlet. From its bright lively color it had the name carbunculus, which signifies a little coal; and among the Greeks ανθραξ anthrax, a coal, because when held before the sun it appears like a piece of bright burning charcoal. It is found only in the East Indies, and there but rarely.


El Shaddai... The third name of God that denotes His NATURE....
El.....Strength and sovereignty (might and power).
Shaddai....NOURISHER; supplier, satisfier....He who continually reveals Himself as a safe harbor. A nourisher and supplier of STRENGTH and courage, the power of FAITH which is our dwelling place.... the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD (Elohim). Used 200 times as He who gives strength in every situation.....
Genesis 21:1-2, Exodus 6:2-3. ABRAHAM received the strength of EL SHADDAI to bring forth ISAAC .....SARAH received strength to conceive.
God said to MOSES, "I AM JEHOVAH. I appeared to ABRAHAM, ISAAC and JACOB as EL SHADDAI.... I am your Savior, and SUPPLIER of their STRENGTH......"
The third identity of the NATURE OF GOD, the HOLY SPIRIT..........



There are 3 stages in the life of an Overcomer, the third stage causing them to enter into the walk of a mature Overcomer. All three stages can be related to in anyone’s experience if they desire the Lord alone in their lives and if they have learned to not lean upon the arm of flesh or anything of man’s systems.




The first stage is that of COMING to the Lord for salvation. This stage may have come about by certain pressures brought to bear upon the individual so that they learn both the calling and the need to surrender to God’s hand upon their lives. For the Overcomer, the life they have lived can often be related right back to their childhood where one or more experiences of their lives can be related to God’s drawing power. There are certain points in the childhood of the Overcomer that they can recall which shows them that God has had His hand upon them from the beginning of their lives. These memories are precious yet fraught with danger as the life so separated unto God is often attacked by the powers of darkness that abides upon mankind.


The drawing of the Overcomer to come to Christ for salvation is unique. It is not according to the systems of christendom or by what men call “salvation”. In the systems, man is brought to the Lord at some altar call or crusade only to be mortared into a brick structure of man’s system and distorted revelation. Although the Overcomer may have come through a denominational church for a time, they would not last long there, but would eventually come apart unto God to seek His Face alone. The person who is thus drawn this way will learn very quickly that they cannot lean upon parentage, or pastorships or any other such thing that comes from the help of man. They learn very early that God is their true source, that God is all they need and that in coming to God they have all the tools and promises of His spirit in them to carry them through their lives.


“But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb, and called me by his grace,

To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:  Galatians 1:15, 16




The second stage of an Overcomer’s life is one of being EMPTIED. This is the drawn out long process of God’s dealings, the interplay of good and evil combined with much tribulation that is now endured. Every high place is being abased, every low place is being exalted, the rough places smooth and the crooked straight. Luke 3:5. This is also the time of life wherein things within the life of the Overcomer are dealt with in such a way by the Lord as to remove from them any taints of “ground given” to wrong spirits or influences as well as any visage of religiosity which would view Christ in a distorted manner. Isaiah 52:14.


The race that is described in 1 Corinthians 9:24 - 27 and Hebrews 12:1,2 now becomes a race of ENDURANCE – not – DISTANCE.


“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:

But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.   1 Corinthians 9:24-27



THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,

Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also it’s Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. [Ps. 110:1.]    Hebrews 12: 1, 2 {AMPLIFIED}


Onwards and upwards is the battle cry for those in the systems of man, for the denominations, for those bearing the false Carbuncle Stone in the Ephod of Lucifer. The kingdom building efforts of denominations during the second stage becomes phenomenal. Not only does the system of man protect his pet doctrine and beliefs, but the one so deceived by this effort of kingdom building cannot be free to be “EMPTIED” out for the Lord.


Not so for the Overcomer. During the second phase in the development of an Overcomer’s life the Lord has one aim. To empty them completely as vessels of His choosing.  The Overcomer who comes through the processings of God during this time will not attempt to “build” anything or “be” anything other than one who simply desires all that God has for them in the New Nature. They recognize that there is nothing in Christendom or in the world that can help them achieve this measure in the Lord so they abandon themselves to God WITH MUCH WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING.


This is also the time of life in the Overcomer where that which comes to them in spirit is tested to see what sort of spirit it is.  They do not accept everything that comes to them in spirit as being from God.


BELOVED, DO not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world.

By this you may know (perceive and recognize) the Spirit of God: every spirit which acknowledges and confesses [the fact] that Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [actually] has become man and has come in the flesh is of God [has God for its source];

And every spirit which does not acknowledge and confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh [but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him] is not of God [does not proceed from Him]. This [nonconfession] is the [spirit] of the antichrist, [of] which you heard that it was coming, and now it is already in the world.

Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.   1st John 4: 1-4.


They that bear the false Carbuncle stone in the Ephod of Lucifer will accept whatever comes to them in spirit as being from God. They are open to whatever revelation or doctrine or motion of spirit that comes to them as being a “new” thing, a thing that cannot be cast aside because the base element of their walk is based in fear that if they reject something, they will miss God. Not only do they accept everything that comes to them as being from God, but they will wrest the scriptures to fit this new revelation, and will associate themselves one with another to strengthen their determination to know this as TRUTH. Should the true spirit of Truth from God come to them to convict them of this, they reject it as demonic and as untrue because they have become deluded. Those who walk this way persecute the Sons of God who are being emptied of all that is in them during this time. The Sons of God only have one doctrine, one commandment, and that is 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


The true Overcomer knows that God will in time complete His entire will in the earth.

“And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? ”    Daniel 4:35



Those bearing the false Carbuncle will not allow any doctrine in that does not go according to their religious works. But those wearing the true Carbuncle of God’s anointing will know that this is ALL God’s works and NOT ours.


Those wearing the false Carbuncle will have the thoughts of father Adam in their minds and the works of father Adam in their right hands.  Revelation 13:6

Those wearing the true Carbuncle will have exchanged the thoughts and the works of father Adam for the Mind of the Lord during this second phase and they will not have effort in the works of God because they know that this is all God’s doing and it is marvelous in their eyes.  Revelation 14:1


Those bearing the false Carbuncle during this time on the earth will be BOUND TO THE EARTH and to THE BEAST which is the Adam nature in mankind. There are 2 beasts, one wild, the other tame. The wild one is Adam’s fallen nature in mankind. The tame one is Adam’s fallen nature in mankind IN HIS RELIGIOSITY. These persecute and kill the saints who would not follow the fallen nature, but who would only be found in Christ not having any of their own righteousness.  Those bearing the true Carbuncle in the Royal Ephod know that they cannot of themselves bring forth true “religion” except that the religion they have will help their fellow man to also be free of THE BEAST(S).


And so the Overcomer at the end of the 2nd phase of their life is now emptied of all that pertains to their own personal lives, but at the same time they wear completely the full armor of God


Further in the 2nd stage of an Overcomer’s life is the battle over the submission of the “will”. The Overcomer desires to be one with Christ as He laid down His will in the Garden of Gethsemane.


{From The Visscher Family Homepage – Prophecy Of The Elijah Company – QUOTE: And thou shalt continue to serve God in obedience, taking each day at a time. Even as thou shalt be afflicted, even at times thou shalt feel weak, thou shalt have pain to bear. But I say unto thee that thou shalt be identified with Christ. Yea, even as He walked upon this earth, He did bear the weight and the burden of sin. Yea, He did pray in the times of fasting and prayer before His God. Yea, the Lord Jesus Christ, thy Lord, did fast and did die to self, yea, and overcame, and yea, thou shalt indeed follow this pattern son. For His is thy pattern. And as thou shalt keep thine eyes, yea, firm upon the Lord Jesus Christ, Yea, I say unto thee, that the power that is in the power of the blood of Jesus, yea shall flow through thy veins !! And yea, thou shalt experience this flow. The power that is in the blood of thy savior is in thee also!! And thou shalt experience this flow as a mighty river of God.” END QUOTE}


One of the grandest battles of the 2nd stage in an Overcomer’s life is determining what exactly is the Overcomer’s own will and what exactly is the Lord’s will, then how do I line up MY WILL with HIS WILL?


Lucifer says:” I am the fullness of God, there is nothing in me that needs to be done more because God and I are one”.


What is the difference between what Lucifer says in this above statement and what the Lord Jesus said?


That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:” John 17:21, 22.  


The difference is simple.


Christ’s prayer was a prayer of submission. One of quiet confidence. No naming and claiming, no coercion or demanding. Just a prayer of simple submission confessing the truth that God was indeed His Father and that He was one with Him. That God in time would be All in All.


But Lucifer’s prayer is such that he claims who he is OUTSIDE OF GOD. That God is “distant” from him. That God’s perfection in his life is because OF WHO HE IS – APART FROM GOD. Lucifer states that he is one with God, but still maintains his separation. This is a form of self-exaltation that is based in spiritual pride. This is how we discern who is of God and who is not.


The Overcomer learns that his will, when submitted to God is not removed from him, but that it comes into a state of quiet submission and oneness which cannot be broken. God’s will and the will of an Overcomer in this second stage cannot be separated. Obedience is the fruit of it, and joy is the end result of that same fruit. Lucifer loses his will, but keeps it in another form. The will of those bound in the false Ephod becomes a will that is bent upon a false perception of God based on false doctrine. Doctrine that shows forth God in a light that is not according to the Tree of Life. Lucifer’s people state they have laid down their will, but in fact they have strengthened their will in INIQUITY {self will}. I will cover this in detail when we study The Mystery Of Iniquity.


The main emphasis of those under the symbolism of the Carbuncle Stone in Lucifer’s ephod during this time is one of being BUILT UP and gaining PLACE IN GOD. It is most imperative that numbers of people, ground gained and doctrinal standards be paramount during this time for those bearing the false Ephod. Not so for the Overcomer. The Overcomer during this time is seeking to be EMPTIED OF SELF. He does not want anything of his/her own life to interfere with the motion of God’s Spirit within them or in God’s plan being worked out in the earth. The Overcomer is far more concerned during this time to be found in that place of quiet submission and emptied of self before God than ministering to others in the earth. The attitude of abandonment to God during this time becomes the chief separator from the true Overcomer with the Carbuncle Stone in the Ephod of the High Priest verses those who bear the false Carbuncle in the Ephod of Lucifer who is building his own Kingdom.


The Overcomer during this 2nd phase of life is very serious about God’s Will being accomplished, so much so that they care not for their own lives at all. If there be any taint in them of any sort, it becomes an obsession to them to have that taint removed. Quite often the taint in their lives is unperceived and is hidden from their discernment. It is during this time that God works in them to deliver them from all these taints and stains of the self nature by allowing the enemy of their souls, the powers of darkness and the forces of evil through Satan and his minions to attack and take His people captive. Should there be something in the life of an Overcomer that is poison to the soul, the Lord Himself will command the enemy to take them into deception. I personally know many that are being used mightily of God in this hour that have been through phenomenal deceptions prior to being used mightily by the Lord later on in their lives. Once the poisons in them is surfaced, the Lord will then open their eyes and through REPENTANCE the Overcomer will be delivered and set free to once more walk in that perfect place in God free of the taints of deception, sin and death.


To qualify this however, I must say that deception and being carried away into delusion can be thwarted if one seeks TRUTH in God’s Word, not according to man’s doctrine, but TRUTH as is sought by an earnest heart.


The experience of the Overcomer during this 2nd stage sharpens the sword they bear to yield it effectively against the powers of darkness that do yet hold God’s people captive. The wild animals that have broken loose and are rampaging in the hearts of the brethren of the Overcomer are slain by the skillful use of his sword which has been sharpened through deception and discernment, the two hard stones used for sharpening the sword of the Word of God in the heart of the Overcomer.


The flip side of this open ministry and skillful discernment is also noteworthy. For the Overcomer will also come into an even newer desire to be even more separated unto God as a harbor of safety from the storms of life. The Carbuncle represents God as the Great El Shaddai, who is a safe harbor from storms. So then the Overcomer seen in their natural life is hidden away, captivated by the Lord, and set aside during this 2nd stage until they come into the third stage where CONTINUOUS REVELATION becomes their constant portion. The Overcomer thus chastised will not attempt to reveal themselves to others in any way but just to abide quietly in God in safety and in contentment until the time comes for REVELATION to be openly displayed in their lives.
