Finding the Kingdom we seek, and Identifying the 2 Witnesses

The Two Witnesses/The Kingdom of God 
 
Part 1-- The Beginning Gifts of the Kingdom to the witnesses
 
Most understand that the two witnesses that Father had before the Son was manifest unto us were the Law and the Prophets.

But, the Son, with His Holy Spirit provided two different, but agreeing witnesses for us of all the Father’s mighty deeds even from the beginning.

Now, the Son has left to us, in addition to the Grace we now enjoy in the physical world, an unspeakable Gift. This Gift we know as the Holy Spirit. Thus two witnesses remain, not for all, but for all who are His children, and members of His Kingdom. We have them through Faith in His Grace.

Thus, realizing this, we also should observe that as Father’s written Word is pregnant, most portions of it frequently brings forth at least 3 truths. These are triune in nature. He is, as in one, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. His truths are thus also three. These are: physical or real, prophetic and spiritual. This format is more easily discerned in His parables, and in the miracles He performed. It is not so easily seen in other passages, but sufficient light by Faith will prevail over mystery. Clearly, we know God’s Word interprets God’s Word.

For His children, for the sake of us, Jesus added another thought, which confused the mystery further for the learned, for He said to those whose job was to venerate the Law and Prophets above all else, the Pharisees:

Luke 16:16-17
16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail. (KJV)

Note that the ‘church’ of the time truly understood that the Law and Prophets were God’s witnesses. Yashua’s statement must have infuriated the ‘church’, but here we can safely assume that He meant that the provisions of the Law and Prophets are to be contained within the whole of a ‘new thing’, namely the Kingdom of God. However, we must carefully note that the Law and Prophets are neither disposed of, nor altered. Thus the Law and Prophets are still and always intact, and they are thus glorified as the foundation of the Kingdom of God. The capstone of this Kingdom is none other than Yashua.

But then, since it is the Kingdom which is to eventually rule, it must take over the job of ‘witnessing‘, using as a sure foundation, the written Word.

So what are the meanings? Simply that we can safely refer to all aspects of the written Law and Prophets, and thus know the intent (parables) of the Kingdom, through the gift of the Holy Spirit. We have Power available in Him.

The first Christian church as in Acts, understood this well, as documented in the discernment, judgments and healings, restoration of life, sight and other miracles done by mere flesh men, with the power of the Holy Spirit which indwelled them. So what happened? Did the Spirit abandon the earth? By no means, for He has said, He would never leave nor forsake us. Do we have the Faith to believe? YES we do.

That mustard seed size grain of faith will eventually grow into the Kingdom of God. This fact is clearly written. That selfsame Holy Spirit which fell on that Pentecost day so long ago will again fall on devout men and women of God. We are the children of His Kingdom. Go look in the mirror. Learn to have faith in what you are. You are His children. It is His children who will become giants of the Faith, and deliver the same punishment to the system of Babylon, the seat of Satan, that this system has used for so long in persecuting the Kingdom, In fact, the punishment is doubled.

Does Father need to roust Elijah and Moses? No indeed, though He could surely if He chose. But why would we think so? Men may say, ohh they did the Works that are mentioned in Revelation. No they did NOT. The Holy Spirit did those works. The Holy Spirit can use anyone with Faith to do greater works than that.

But, friends, If you read the Acts carefully, you will see that a Peter and John would do just as nicely. Did these really have more faith than any member of the Kingdom? I wonder. In accord with the Words of Yashua, one does not need much faith to start with. Just a witty bit. How about it? Moved any mountains lately? Tired of  talking? Well, then get into the Word, The time is shorter than it was when I typed this.  This Kingdom is within YOU.
 
 
 
Two Witnesses/Kingdom of God
 
Part 2---ICHABOD
 
The name Ichabod in the Hebrew language means "the Glory has departed". It is only used one time in the Word. Perhaps so we would notice. It is given as a name to a child, who was born just as the enemy had captured the Ark of God, and taken it to themselves. It is an interesting tale. You may want to read of the situation in 1 Samuel ch. 4. We have let ourselves, WE, the Children of the Kingdom, be the prisoners of this same situation. We have let the earth and pagan traditions change the concept of our Ark, to the point that it has 'departed', to a place of rest. That place of rest is in the Kingdom of God.

In the words of pogo possum, ‘We have met the enemy, and he is us."

Now, note that the people at the time had their faith in a physical Ark. Though Father allowed them to regain this physical ark, it was not by any of their actions, such as physical war, for they were "powerless" to regain it.

If you study, you will see that Father convinced the captors of the Ark themselves, pagan though they were, that they had better give it back, quickly and with reverence. He did this by physically making it a pain in the backside parts for these pagans. Father has those same sentiments today, be assured. He just needs His Children to wake up, for He needs someone to give His gifts to.

Now this physical Ark rests not at all on this earth today. It is located in Heaven, in Father’s Glory, as He says in Rev 11:19. Men make their fairy tales about where it is, and that it is in Ethiopia, or buried under the Mount, or in whatever place. Nope, when God, through His Spirit named the child Ichabod, this was a prophecy of final warning to the Kingdom. When the King of Babylon captured the city, the Ark was not there. The king of Babylon has no access to the Ark, nor will He ever have.

So the lessons are plain.

1) Father does not want you to worship and honor a physical ark.
So in His Wisdom, and for His Children, He has provided a Spiritual Ark, which cannot be entered nor taken away by pagans. Now, that the Ark is not your local ‘church house‘ should be obvious, for they are certainly entered into, even taken away by pagans.

2) As He Has prophesied, in due time we shall see the Ark, when we see the Kingdom of God.

This Ark for the last times is none other than the Person and Grace of Yashua.

So here we are today, even knowing this, and we sit like spoiled little brats in the banquet hall of the richest King the world has ever not known, staring longingly at a table loaded with Spiritual goodies, just waiting for the Master to utter the invitation to ’come and dine’ .

Shame on us. He has already given that invitation to all. If you did not hear, you certainly must have had your attention attracted by something else at the time.

We argue and contest that "my food tastes better than yours", without the realization that some children have a different prescription given by the Physician.

Don’t let some other child of the Kingdom wonder about and toss away those vitamins you need to grow. Have faith that the One who gave His life for you must have had you in mind. Study His Word for yourself.

Look in that mirror again. Do you like what you see? Well, then get up and do something about it. You don't need any special invitation. You are His Child, and you have enough Faith to believe it, or you would not be spending time on the Web, looking for vitamins.
 

Part 3--  A parable of the last Judge
 
The story of the last Judge of the yet undivided nation of Israel is given in the Books of First and Second Samuel..  At the time of  the birth of "Ichabod" above, Samuel was but a young child, a product of  miracle birth story.  He was 12. The age when Hebrew lads even today become a man with the ceremony of  "Bar-Mitzvah".   The mere news of the Ark’s capture had caused the death of Eli, the second to last Judge and Samuel’s tutor.  This Eli only saw the Glory go, But Samuel, the last Judge would hear from God, that it’s return was only temporary..  
The story surrounding this birth of "Ichabod", causing the death of  his mother, the way the Ark came back, and the present state of us today has many similarities.  Samuel was not a perfect flesh father, for he would witness the death of  2 of his sons, who would not obey the rules of the Priesthood.   His third son, Eleazar would be the last Priest in the line. The name Eleazar is the Hebrew equivalent of the Greek name Lazarus. (See the resurrection of this Priesthood in John 11)
Allow me to share some of the simple ones, but look for yourself, for some pearls.
 Now the reason for, and the actual return of the Ark paint a familiar picture.  As with His Glorious things today, their denigration will result in blessings being removed and pain substituted.  These are not things for His Children to worry about, for the ones who play church with pagan ideas, have no part in the Kingdom.   The Ark remained in pagan darkness for seven months.  (A month or "moon" is virtually always indicative of the children of the darkness)
For the return of the Ark, Father could not find anyone worthy in the pagans, so in His humor, He used His creation.  His two witnesses for this task were animals.  That His spirit had shown them the way is evident for anyone who has ever tried to separate a nursing cow and her calf.
As the 2 witnesses went along, protesting with sounds, They came up to workmen going about the harvest of Wheat, on the outskirts of a town called Bethshemesh, which is literally in Hebrew, City of the Sun, or the City of the Eastern side.  (The sun or "days"  virtually always points to Children of the Light).  Thus the witnesses with the Ark, arrived from the Eastern direction.
The workers in the harvest rejoiced at the sight of the return of the Glory.  
Now just as all the workers in the Harvest to come will not be Children of the light, we see that the "two witnesses" were slain for the burden they bore.  Even though they bore the Glory of the Lord, even the cart they carried their burden upon was with themselves offered as a sacrifice to the Lord.  It was offered on a Rock, in a wide place, or field .
We can see a parallel to the 11 th chapter of Revelation here, and one of the many Ways Father has of teaching, even teaching pagans to keep their hands off of those things that belong to His Children.
 One lesson from this, as all look for the 2 witnesses to come, and that Glory to split the Eastern Sky, is surely that Father can use anything He wants as His witnesses, He surely does not NEED any particular man.  He does need us to obey, and find Faith in Him through His Word.  If we cant realize this, we may not get to find and enjoy all the Grace, or even the fact that the Glory seems to have departed from earth, signalling something close to happen.  We know it will return.  We know as Children of the Promise. Our Faith will triumph, and Yashua will reign.    
 
Check your rear view mirror again.  
 
 
Part 4--- Time out for understanding

Let's pause here for a moment and just think a bit how we could possibly begin to deserve the right to take on this job of being witnesses of the LIVING Word, we being mere flesh persons.

The main reason we must be witnesses is because Yashua has told us that is what He expects of Children of His Kingdom.  "Ye are my witnesses to the ends of the earth".  We see the witnesses in Rev 11, as they face the seat of Satan, allowing the Holy Spirit to do His Work, through their hands and mind. They, as mere flesh persons have earned the right to help conquer Satan, by offering their total Faith. How did they get it? The same way we can. By listening and acting in faith solely on what Father has given us, HIS understanding of HIS WORD, and working against everthing else.


We can ONLY succeed if we increase our Faith, by UNDERSTANDING.
Now to make this thought plain, and the experience real, let's look at the falsity of a current teaching, which discernment-ignorant sheeple accept.

Namely that the "mark of the beast", is a chip, a bar code or a 666 stamped on you.

The understanding of Father’s Word is our DUTY, as children of the Kingdom. We cannot be the effective witnesses for Him without such understanding. This is how Faith must be increased, and His Kingdom come.

We have most certain surety that a proper understanding is available to us in His written Word. We have but to believe the clear statement that this promise is indeed given to us. Yashua has clearly said:

Luke 8:
17 For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have. (KJV)

This promise is a means to both give us confidence that we CAN understand, but also a warning that we MUST hear only His truth, or we as individuals will LOSE what we think we have of understanding. Again, as with the simplicity of directing this concept to a small child, which we are in His Word, we are admonished in the letters of Paul and others that even though we as believers are granted the possibility of having the “mind of Christ”, remember that:

1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. (KJV)

Thus Paul says the same thing as Yashua said, but places the warnings in the form of admonishments throughout his letters. This admonishment by Paul is basically to ‘be not carried away with every wind of doctrine’, but ‘prove those things we hear by the Scriptures’.

So what is this “MEANS” for understanding the scriptures? Well, for children of the Kingdom it had better be your MIND, your thinking processes, or you will surely become an orphan, as many do daily become orphans of the Kingdom, primarily due to laziness.

See, as children, lacking confidence, we are too often “peer pressed” into accepting what happens to be false doctrine, which of course has no Truth in the clear WORDS and INTENT of the ‘mind of Christ’, which He has given to us in the Written Word and that only.

This discernment, if you will, can come to us only one way. We must have the sure KNOWLEDGE that our minds, our thinking processes, are not darkened by “words without Wisdom”, and the CONFIDENCE, or FAITH that we can DISCERN the difference as necessary between mans thoughts and Christ’s thoughts.

As He has said, ’my sheep know my voice, and another they will not follow’. Thus children of the Kingdom will not accept lies.

The simplicity of this statement best not mislead you, for Christ taught us as little children. We have but to heed His words and believe them. To do this we first must have confidence and ask, as did David and Solomon for UNDERSTANDING. Understanding is what most young children cannot properly use, it’s their THINKING process, is it not?  Did you ever get frustrated with your children not listening?  Well, think how Father feels about us!!


Ps 119:73
73 Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments. (KJV)

Prov 2:2
2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; (KJV)

Prov 4:7
7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. (KJV)

Eph 1:18
18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, (KJV)

I Jn 5:20
20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. (KJV)

But, in spite of this vast storehouse of knowledge we have for the asking, many LAZY children who will not Study to become approved of God, listen instead to the ignorance hatched in the MIND of some man, putting confidence where it must not be for a child of the Kingdom. In doing so, they lose the ability to properly discern, and their status as Children of the Kingdom.

As Paul says:

Eph 4:18
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: (KJV)

Again, now, what is understanding? Simply put, your thinking process.

Test and exercise your own “thinking process” or understanding now, on this passage:

Rev 13:16-18
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (KJV)

Do you have understanding? Do you have a mind? Can you read and comprehend?

Lets look in the Word. The very fact that we cannot find a second witness to what the ‘mark of the beast’ actually is in words that are pleasing to us, has resulted in the certain lie. This lie is that, somehow, something physical and mysterious can defile you so that you become unacceptable to God.

Fortunately, we CAN prove from the WORD, however, what this ‘mark’ IS NOT, so lets see what Yashua said about physical things, to the “learned TV preachers of the day“, the Pharisees:.

Mark 7:13-16
13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
14 And when he had called all the people unto him, he said unto them, Hearken unto me every one of you, and understand:
15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear. (KJV)

Now hear this. Do you have understanding? What comes out of a man but the thoughts of his mind, and their product in the physical world, his works?

Further reading will show the obvious. The mark is the mark of a man. See that ?
The mark of a man.
Rev 13:
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (KJV)

Thus whether the mark is or is not physical is of no consequence to the children of the Kingdom, either way, for we know the truth.

We need to continually mature in the Word of God, as Children of the Kingdom, because a prime duty we presently have is to show the falsity of the words of man. Do you need more understanding? Then keep studying with your mind, really its OK, not only that, its required to enter the Kingdom. Use your 'forehead'. God Gave it to us to use for Him, not to bang it against a wall.

Keep looking in that mirror

Part five-- The message

Through the past 4 parts we have asked and been shown through the Word of God, that indeed, flesh people, even animals, as well as all His creation are used to accomplish His will.

We have found glimpses of understanding in places He has hidden them. We must now look at the meaning of the following with understanding:

Isa 43:9-10

9 Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled: who among them can declare this, and shew us former things? let them bring forth their witnesses, that they may be justified: or let them hear, and say, It is truth.

10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. (KJV)

Acts 1:

7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;

11 Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. (KJV)

Acts 13:47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. (KJV)

Well, now what do you think? Who are the witnesses of Rev. 11? Do you still believe that He needs to send some back that are now in their Rest? They have already paid their dues to Him on this earth. It is our time now. Face it, “We is IT.” Look in that mirror one last time. Are we going to remain so deceived by men that we sit here “gazing into heaven?”

Zerubbabel literally means “born out of Babylon”, Babylon is as we know, “confusion”. Mans thoughts., but look how we shall be witnesses, if we come out of Babylon, into the Light.. At this time, especially, He needs some to depend on, and many to wake up to their call.

 

Zech 4:1-9

1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,

2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:

3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.

4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?

5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.

The challenge of deficiency we face in witnessing is manifest not in verbal difficulty. It is simply that we LACK FAITH that we are even capable of doing His Work. To gain faith, we have the only sources available in this earth. His Grace and The WORD as written. Man can tell you what it says, but there is no way man can tell you what it means. Only His Spirit can do that.

Now remember from the first, We had 2 faithful witnesses, the Law and the Prophets. With Yashua’s Advent, this sure foundation was the beginning of the ‘new thing’, namely the Kingdom of God.

The two Witnesses to this, His Will, is simply Grace and Faith. That’s it folks, that’s all there is past Salvation, Faith and Grace. If you want to be useful to Father, though, we as witnesses must not forget the foundation of the Written Word. We make Him live in the understanding of all by witnessing His Word. That is the only way His Spirit will be with us.

Father made this change for a specific reason, we can be sure, but we do not understand it all yet.

There is perhaps more than one specific reason why Father chose to make this change at the time He did.

For example, consider that Satan, from his experience as an eyewitness to God’s majesty is a great ‘scripture lawyer’. He can read quite well, and he knows the written word better than any flesh man could ever hope to. He twists and distorts the word to the extent that more and more today ’churches’ bring in unspeakable abominations and lies for which the ignorant sheeple have great affinity. They have their “feel good” time. I can’t imagine that the “feel good” Christ put Himself through for us was exactly the same as this, can you? There is no possible way a flesh man can stand up to Satan, without the Holy Spirit dwells within him.

Look in the mirror, again.

As opposed to the Physical written word, the Kingdom of God, Jesus says is ‘within you’. (Luke 17:21). Satan is therefore permanently excluded from this Kingdom, can’t you see? Satan and his minions can read your written words, and hear when you talk, but if you are a member of the Kingdom, he cannot get inside your mind. You have as Paul says, the mind of Christ. Thus, as a member of the Kingdom, you have the “Seal of God” in your forehead, that is to say, in your mind. A very simple, real, truth. As a member of the Kingdom, a person has God’s mark in their forehead, and there is no room for the mark of the beast, Satan.

So now, if this Kingdom is within you, is the physical ‘church’ necessarily a witness of it? The Kingdom is within you, and if you want to be a part of it, you must first accept the gift of Salvation, which is freely available. Then (and this is the part many just don’t get), you must keep that mark in your mind. The only way this is properly done is through a thorough understanding of the written Word, not the word of a man. The job of a ‘church’ should be, therefore to teach you HOW to study for yourself. Unfortunately, many churches only teach what worked for the originator of that denomination, and stress church rituals. Since each member of the Kingdom has individual gifts that Father has given, they are all for the glory of all. They are not all the same gifts, else it would tend to boring. As a member of the Kingdom, your first and prime responsibility is to keep Satan and things of this world out, else you lose your membership immediately, and sometimes permanently. There are many examples of lost membership in the Word. This action on an individual’s part is a continuous housecleaning. At first it is not easy. Like everything else, though, it gets easier with practice. The key is discernment, which you get only through the Word, through diligent and thorough study.

This does not mean you must sacrifice things you enjoy, and are pleasures for you personally, and are also those which God gave to be enjoyed. As Paul stated, (paraphrased) ‘what is a sin for one, is not with another‘, with the caveat that the strong must not make another member weak through their actions. (Works). Solomon, the wisest flesh man ever, in his lecture, Ecclesiastes, states that the greatest pleasure of man is to enjoy the fruits of his labor, and basically, leave the future to God, for we know not what will be.

Eccl 5:18-19

18 Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.

19 Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God. (KJV)

So, being a member of the Kingdom does not necessarily require “sacrificing” on the orders of a ‘church‘, so long as we do not lead another to sin. This is most important for the mature member of the Kingdom.

Such ‘freedom’ is both a blessing and a curse. It is a blessing as long as your mind continues to measure with the Word. If you lose this ability, or let it fade, or forget and lead another astray, it will turn into a great personal curse, do considerable damage to the Kingdom, perhaps even permanently canceling your membership, as it did for some of the first members of the original church.

So, the ‘burden’ one sometimes feels from ‘church’ orders are not from God, if you are a member of the Kingdom, for Christ has told us, “my yoke is easy, and my burden light” (Matt 11:30). Now, we must be very careful here, to be sure. This ’freedom in Christ’ as Paul says, carries the price of eternal vigilance.

So now, we have answered one question. That is the ’church’ is not a physical witness of the Kingdom, but YOU are.

Ok, now consider that others (members of the Kingdom or not), know you by the way you act and do things. It is most natural to observe the works of others, and form opinions based upon those works observed. Are you an effective witness for the Kingdom? Are the works you do works which would encourage another to “want some of what you have“?

It should be obvious that if the mind of a natural man tells his hands to steal, then those hands will indeed steal. Thus the works of the hands reflect those thoughts of the mind. If the mind of a member of the Kingdom tells the hands to help pick someone up and comfort them, then the hands indeed follow the mind’s orders. The works of the hands reflect the thoughts of the mind.

Never forget this simple truth. The ’mark’ in the mind (forehead) is the spiritual reflection for the physical ‘mark’ you leave with your hands, or works. So look one last time in the mirror.

Beloved, make no mistake. We can and will, by His Spirit, ONLY, stand up to the evil one Satan, IN PERSON.

We will also succeed, as is written in the Revelation of Jesus our Lord. We will do it as written, as true zerubbabels, for we choose to be indeed, “born out of confusion”. We will do it through our mustard seed size faith, by His Grace.

Now, break that mirror, for you will never need it again. Tell pogo possum we have found the witnesses, for they are US. Let’s get to work.

 

Thy Kingdom Come--- Part 6

Beloved, What I am about to write here pains me to an extent. But truth is truth, and it must out. Some of us are called to witness to those things we are sure of. Whether you can accept is or not is a matter of your own conscience. The following explains where we are, how we got there, and finally, most importantly, what we can do about it.

We live in a Nation (Israel) blessed by the Covenant given by our Father to our fathers. We cling to the mercies of our Master Jesus Christ, who has for 2000 years stood alone in the gap separating this world He so loves from the righteous wrath of the Eternal Law-Giver.  Lets honor Him by showing we know the reason.

We enjoy the diminishing freedoms we hold so dear by our fathers who established this Nation with their blood and personal fortunes, who, wresting it from the powers of the world, passed it on to us, their heirs.

We have helplessly watched as the kings and princes elected by us have become illegitimate masters, owned by someone other than ourselves and controlled by mammon and greed. It has become the norm that daily we are guilty of financing the murder of unborn children, satiate the unholy desires of sodomites and protect the ill-invented ‘rights’ of convicted criminals, most of whom eat and live better than we, the violated. We pay for these things with money we earned for our own families which is extorted by our ‘princes’ under color of ‘law’ they imagined.

As a society, we stand by like sheep while wages extorted from us pay the health care costs and ‘education’ of illegal aliens, and those members of society who choose not to work, but to breed.

As citizens, we have been bought by the lie of ‘free benefits’ and government programs, promising something for nothing, everything now, and we are thus owned by the system, slaves for life due to usury and taxes.

As Christians, we have let the Satanic lie of ’separation’ of church and state, a totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL premise, get a foothold in the vocabulary of the unlearned. This Nation was founded as a Republic, under God, with only liberty and justice for all, with the PERSUIT of happiness available for all.

How we got here MUST be blamed on us as ‘Christians’. How we get out is Written for us in Father’s Word. We will discuss that shortly.

As so-called Christians we have stopped believing in the truth of the Word. We have been lulled to sleep by the lies pushed on us by the servants of Satan who wear sheep clothing. Many ignorant sheep accept as truth the damnable lie of the “Fatherhood of God, and the brotherhood of man” God is NOT the Father of all man kind. Neither are all men brothers.

John 8:39-44

39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham.

40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham.

41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God.

42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (KJV)

As if this were not enough, the damnable ‘rapture’ lie, and the lie of the ‘any moment’ doctrine has deadened the ignorant sheeple to the fact that they have through their own laziness been deceived. Thus they ‘don’t worry’ about the sorry state of the world and their precious National heritage, for they are told that “Jesus” will save you cause you “love him”.

As preposterous as this is for any thinking individual, many will never see until the final 2 witnesses are slain, the last 2 in the whole world in which is any trace of the Holy Spirit.

Deut 32:36-37

36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. (KJV)

Even so, the majority of the ignorant sheeple will not see until even 4 days after that event.

Matt 7:22-23

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. (KJV)

If these words shake your faith, is it any wonder why Yashua said of those who would escape by their ‘rapture righteousness‘:

 

Luke 18:7-9

7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?

9 And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: (KJV)

Thus let us seek His will, for He has said we will find it.

Faith is that quality the 2 witnesses have which will usher in the Kingdom of God. Their faith is manifested in their works, which come from inside them, where the Holy Spirit dwells.

Thus the Kingdom of God to shortly come is thus born from their faith; It is not a gift to them, it is a gift from them to us all, for as Yashua says:

.

Luke 17:20-21

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (KJV)

Now it is written that God wishes the Kingdom come, and surely it will.

God's "Will" is to say, is to be INSIDE each child of the Kingdom. Hence, we either learn this lesson now, or there is no way to stand when we will have to.

People "pray for His will", as if to admit, without even knowing, much less claiming the promises He has already given to those of His Kingdom. There are written for us many examples, if we look, and they are not necessarily inclusive..

Folks think that God gave the Apostles "faith" as it in written in the Acts. Nope, not so. Faith cannot be a gift from God. Faith is a gift from inside you to the Kingdom. God gives Grace. God gives His "Will". God teaches in His Word. But, we must seek Faith if we want to be Children of the Kingdom. Once found, it can be stolen by the world, but it can be regained.

Consider that Peter, regained the faith to know the Spirit could heal the lame at the beautiful gate, Acts 4. That faith grew over many trials. Where did he get the grain to start with? Ol Pete, the fisherman probably always wanted to walk on water, so he asked. He did it, too, until he took his spiritual eyes off the source.

He let his faith slip at the crucifixion. He even had a hard time believing the resurrection. He did, however have enough faith to go look for himself. This is a lesson for us. go look for yourself.

That is what we need to do, look for ourselves. When we seek the Living Word we will find a way to renew our faith. It is written in His "last Will and Testament". We are the inheritors.

Pete found the way to increase his faith. He knew the "Will". He did not say, "Father if it be your will, cause this man to walk".

He knew the Will. and had sufficient faith inside to share it. Children of the Kingdom need to find their little grain of faith.

Here is a little boy who was apparently the only one of the 5000 to bring his lunch, when he went to hear the Master teach, for he did not know how long he would be there. He wanted to be prepared. Do you have the faith of the little boy who willingly shared his lunch? Or do you harbor the doubt of Phillip?

 

John 6:5-11

5 When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?

6 And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do.

7 Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little.

8 One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him,

9 There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many?

10 And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand.

11 And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. (KJV)

1 Chr 29:17

17 I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee. (KJV)

Ps 26:2

2 Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart. (KJV)

Ps 81:7

7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah. (KJV)

Matt 13:19-22

19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;

21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.

22 He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. (KJV)

Lets sincerely decide to be prepared ground, so that together we can usher in Our Kingdom.

I sincerely hope this study has caused you to rethink your perspective on the signs of the times. It is not May,1948, nor June 1967, nor the NWO, nor the EU. It is NOT ’this generation’. It is not ’any moment’. Since the Kingdom of God is ISRAEL (rulers with God) and it comes not by observation, it may be even closer than ‘any moment‘. Father has a very close eye on His nation, especially at this time. A word to the wise is sufficient. Start wondering where your faith is. Is it in what is written or in what you perceive?

Luke 17:20-21

20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:

21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (KJV)

Father WILL continue to Bless us and in this time, especially

Bob
