The Sixth Essential Foundational Experience

The Anointing With the Holy Spirit

The Fulness Of the Seven Spirits of God

The Fulness Of Him Who Fills All in All

The Basic Introduction to the Sixth Foundation.

Part A

Exodus 40:12 "Then you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the doorway of the tent of meeting and wash them with water. 13 "And you shall put the holy garments on Aaron and anoint him and consecrate him, that he may minister as a priest to Me. 14 "And you shall bring his sons and put tunics on them; 15 and you shall anoint them even as you have anointed their father, that they may minister as priests to Me; and their anointing shall qualify them for a perpetual priesthood throughout their generations."

This is one of several key verses in the Bible that defines the ordination of the Old Covenant priests.

(1) Chosen By God (Circumcision) (Repentance)

(2) Shedding of Blood

(3) Removing the old garments

(4) Washed all over with Water

(5) Putting on the Priests Garments; (a complete exchange of garments; the Old for the New)

(6) Anointed With Oil

(7) Consecration of the Priests.

These seven (7) steps were necessary to be qualified for the earthly Priesthood.

For example; without first removing of the Old Garments, putting on the New Priests' Garments, the putting on of the Bonnet was not possible.

Could the preparation for the Eternal Priesthood be less?

In the New Covenant, God is preparing a corporate Kingdom of Priests with Christ Jesus as our Great High Priest.

Christ Jesus has already been appointed as High Priest and He has taken His seat at the Right Hand of God!

He is not waiting to rule because He has already been given all authority over both Heaven and earth.

This fact alone (where He sits at the Right Hand of God) has tremendous significance because it also relates to His Body!

Our emphasis here is upon the "Body" of our Great High Priest.

Jesus Christ is the prototype to reveal something about the Kingdom of Priests that are being prepared today.

The Old Covenant and the natural priesthood is a copy or shadow or picture for us of how God:

(1) Chooses us

(2) Cleanses us

(3) Anoints us

(4) How Man Responds

(5) Consecrates Himself

(6) Qualifies for Priesthood

(7) Functions in the New Covenant Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek.


By functioning within the Body of Our Great High Priest!

My theory is that this is how God is preparing us to function in the world yet to come.

That "future world" is defined as "the Tabernacle of God" as we see in Revelation 21: 1-3.

None of this is hidden nor is any of it complicated nor is any of it too difficult for even ignorant and unlearned fishermen to understand and participate in by doing the Will of God.

We are presenting all seven (7) of these preparations as the "Normal Christian/Kingdom Life."

None of these foundations are optional.

Making these foundational experiences optional is a very serious error of the visible church systems.

The Sixth Foundation for the "Normal Christian / Kingdom Life"

is the Anointing With the Holy Spirit.

The First "down payment" (the earnest) of the Anointing is the Baptism With the Holy Spirit.

This "small beginning" is our immersion in the Holy Spirit, individually!

Act 1:7 He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His Own authority; 8 but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."

The sequence of experiencing the Holy Spirit that is given is

(1) with us

(2) upon us

(3) within us!

Too much of the visible church has focused upon the "with us" dimension!

The Pentecostal Church has focused upon the "upon us" dimension.

The "down payment" dimensions is "upon us!"

The two stages of functioning within the Holy Spirit can be seen in Like 4.

Luke 4:1 And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led about by the Spirit in the wilderness.

Luke 4:14 And Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit; and news about Him spread through all the surrounding district.

The difference between these two dimensions is in the Consecration Offering given in the wilderness experience.

Jesus "returned" within the Priesthood Ministry after the Order of Melchizedek.

We will take all this into account in this document but our purpose is to write about the Anointing WITH or IN the Holy Spirit. Why?

The 6th foundation for every believer is this New Covenant Anointing.

It is this "Anointing" that defines one of the qualifications for the Priesthood!

Without the Anointing, there is NO universal priesthood ministry.

It is this "Anointing" that:

· teaches us all things,

· leads us into all Truth, and

· reveals to us the Christ of God.

The error of the Evangelical Church is that she has rejected this basic beginning.

The error of the Pentecostal Church is she has accepted this down payment (or a little bit) as the whole package.

The Pentecostal Church has short-changed herself by not going on from the primary Anointing to the full universal Priesthood function.

First we must take care to establish that the anointing of the Old Covenant, which was with oil, is fulfilled in the New Covenant by the Baptism with the Holy Spirit.

While the oil was special, just technically or chemically analyzing the physical qualities of the oil is a big waste of time. Why?

It is just a type or shadow (a poor replica) and not the reality.

What we need to know is this;

Act 10:38 "You know of Jesus of Nazareth, how God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed by the devil; for God was with Him.

The fact that God anointed Him with the Holy Spirit, should take away any doubt that the ANOINTING is the Holy Spirit, Himself.

The Holy Spirit does NOT anoint us with "something" other than Himself! Why?

He, Himself, IS the Anointing.

Putting oil on the foreheads of believers in the shape of the cross and calling that the "Anointing" is not really stupid it is ridiculous.

Since the natural "minister" has no way to know the reality of this New Covenant Anointing, he must revert back to some useless ritual.

I have seen the worthless ritual done even in Charismatic meetings.

The first Anointing is with the Holy Spirit for:

· gifts,

· correction,

· consecration, and

· preparation.

This is what we see happening in the Book of Acts.

If we grow and develop in the First Anointing this should lead us to full experience of consecration!

It is this full Consecration that should lead us to being fully invested in the Purpose of God.

Being fully invested in the Purpose and Kingdom of God should prepare us to function in the Lampstand Church.

The next dimension of the Anointing, which is essential, is WITHIN US and is upon the New Inner Man.

1John 2:20 But you have an Anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.

1John 2:27 And as for you, the Anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His Anointing teaches you about all things, and is True and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.

This Anointing is essential for us to function within the New Covenant Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. Why?

This is because it is this Anointing that changes our instruction from man to the Holy Spirit, Himself.

It is this inward work of the Holy Spirit that corrects and disciplines us to share His Holiness.

It is these qualities that qualify us to function in the Eternal Priesthood.

Why is this teaching, correction and discipline essential?

That is because in the Body of our High Priest there is ONLY ONE HEAD!

Every member of His Body MUST have their heads covered.

Why the bonnet?

This indicates that they fully acknowledged that they are not the ultimate Head so they:

· make no decisions,

· set no direction

· nor do they even have an opinion.

All the Old Covenant priests (even Aaron) ministered to God as priests with their head fully covered.

This is a clear and wonderful type recognizing that God was their only Head.

Heb 7:1 For this Melchizedek, King of Salem, Priest of the Most High God, Who met Abraham as he was returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him.

This New Covenant Priesthood, after the Order of Melchizedek, is directly responsible to God Most High.

There is NO appointed man that can stand between.

Of course our Great High Priest functions as Sovereign Head over His Body of Priests.

As Sovereign Head He is responsible to God, Most High.

As Sovereign Head He makes all the decisions for His Body of priests.

Without all the foundational experiences, it will not be possible for the "believers" to function under these Kingdom restrictions and to keep their head covered.

Without the "first" Anointing there can be NO "second" Anointing upon the New Inner Man for ministry and function!

Without this Anointing that abides in you, this essential:

· teaching,

· correction and

· discipline

will not equip us to fulfill the Purpose of God.

We define the "Will and Purpose of God" as that which comes directly from our High Priest, the Head.

To be perfectly clear, for someone to speak about the second Anointing with or in the Holy Spirit without the first Anointing, the Baptism with the Holy Spirit, is just more religious fantasy.

The Bible evidence of the "first" Anointing is "speaking with tongues!"

The evidence of the "second Anointing" is:

· the teaching,

· the correction, and

· the discipline,

that comes from within.

It is "from within" that the New Covenant ministry emerges.

Even though this has been debated since the Pentecostal Movement began in 1906, the Bible facts cannot be changed or modified by various explanations about Apostles passing away or that "tongues will cease" or that God has replaced the great power of Pentecost with an abundance of grace.

It is just ridiculous to say that now that we have the Bible we don't need Apostles or the Power of God.

The "FACTS" are very clear to anyone who wants to see and understand how God has designed the ministry to function during the Church Age.

To those who have closed their eyes and their mind to this dispensation of the Holy Spirit, nothing can convince them.

This is exactly how it should be. Why?

It is necessary to prevent the functioning Priesthood from being cluttered up with a bunch of casual Christians who have refused to qualify for the Priesthood.

These casual, relaxed and unconcerned "ministers" have eliminated themselves from the race to the High Calling!

Therefore, this message of the Sovereign Kingdom experience is NOT for them.

The message of the Kingdom and its Absolute Government will infuriate the casual leader and this is exactly how it should be!

However, the purpose of this document on the Sixth Foundation is to present more of the FULLNESS rather than rehash again and again, the "partial" or the "down payment" portion of the Holy Spirit.

While hundreds of books have been published on the "partial" very little has been recorded about the "fulness."

Why are we concerned about the "fulness" at this time?

Because, many of the commonly read Scriptures speak of higher dimensions of the Anointing than we are now familiar with or are experiencing at this present time.

John 5:20 "For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and greater works than these will He show Him, that you may marvel.

John 14:11 "Believe Me that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me; otherwise believe on account of the works themselves.

12 "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father.

13 "And whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.

These things are revealed as Absolutes and NOT as possibilities or as options.

Defining the true believers as those who are doing the "greater works" is an Absolute!

In other words; they WILL do greater works.

Either the "greater works" have been done and have not been recorded, or the church has failed to do the "greater works!"

Of course, it should be an obvious fact that this "prophesy" of "greater works" has not yet been fulfilled by the corporate church.

I have searched hundreds of years of church history and so far I have seen there is NOTHING recorded that even faintly fulfills what Jesus said.

This then is a valid question:

If this "prophesy" has not yet been fulfilled, WHY has it not been fulfilled?

What needs to be accomplished so it can be fulfilled?

Must it be fulfilled before Jesus can return?

My thesis is this:

This Prophesy will be fulfilled by the functioning members

of the Body of our Great High Priest!

But what is the delay?

We need to back up to all Seven of the preparation stages for the assembly and perfection of the Body of our Great High Priest to get the answer.

At the present He is still building His Pure Gold Lampstand Church as we saw in Revelation 2 and 3.

It is obvious that there still could be much work yet to be done.

Of course the Lampstand Church is not visible EXCEPT within the illumination of the Seven Spirits of God in the Holy Place!

In this natural light the Lampstand Church is invisible.

But what has that to do with the Body of our Great High Priest?

I am guessing that it is the Lampstand Church that will supply the members for the Body of our Great High Priest.

Every member of His Body will do the Absolute and Sovereign Will of the Head.

But how is this even possible and isn't such a concept just another idealism that can never happen during the church age?

This question creates another question.

Are the "GREATER WORKS" just another idealism that can never be fulfilled during the church age?

This appears to be another ridiculous excuse which is given but ignores such a straight- forward statement!

Another question is this:

Are the greater works an Absolute expectation or just another possibility, if we agree?

Rather than work up some more excuses why the greater works are not possible, isn't it more practical to investigate why Jesus' statements are not working?

My theory is this:

Until the ALL the Foundations are securely laid in the actual experience of the believers, God will not permit us to go on to this NEXT perfection.

The next question that needs to be answered is this:

To whom has been given the responsibility to lay these Foundations

in the experience of the saints?

And the answer is found in Ephesians 4 :11.

That work is clearly the responsibility of the "five-fold ministries!"

"But, Brother, won't the next restoration be the perfection of the Glorious Church that is" without spot or wrinkle, holy and blameless?

Is it not true that He will return for the Bride, the First Fruits of the final Harvest, which is the Kingdom of Priests?"

That appears to be true.

However, as Jesus said "The Father has kept most of this information for Himself, Alone!" Why?

That is so we will not get this whole thing figured out.

Then what do we know?

The Glorious Church is made up of those "perfected" saints that will fulfill His Eternal Purpose and bring joy to His Heart.

God has established His Own requirements and set His Own standards of perfection for this group.

Therefore, WHEN it will happen is NOT a date that has been set but a perfection to be attained.

I am speculating that the Glorious Church will be functioning as the Body of our Great High Priest in the Holy Place realm in this dispensation!

The real question we are asking in this document is this;

Is there any possibility that the Glorious Church can exist

without all the Foundations being laid as Life experiences?

Can the Glorious Church be built upon a frail base of sand?

Of course not!

Then what IS the base upon which the Lampstand Church rests?

Pure Gold.

Another question that could be asked is this:

Will the Greater Works be done by the Glorious Church

before the snatching away of the Bride of Christ?

What if the Glorious Church is also the Body of our Great High Priest and it is this corporate group that is called to do the Greater Works?

It appears from what Jesus said that these Greater Works will be visible, someday.

Of course, these many speculations may not be helpful at this time!

By now it should be clear that there are many more questions than we have received valid answers.

It should also be clear that unless God reveals these things, there is no way we can know what the reality really is.

However, the next question must still be asked:

Has God made any solid and proven provision so we CAN know these mysteries?

Is there a "solid, experiential Foundation" in which the hidden Wisdom and the Mysteries are revealed?

Nevertheless, even though we are guessing, this is our vision for today!

Eph 3:8 To me, the very least of all saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unfathomable riches of Christ, 9 and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God, Who created all things;

10 in order that the manifold Wisdom of God might now be made known through the Church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places. 11 This was in accordance with the Eternal Purpose which He carried out in Christ Jesus our Lord,

This is the Purpose of this next Fulfillment - the Sixth Foundation!

That is the Indwelling Holy Spirit, because it is His joy

to reveal these Mysteries and to impart this Wisdom from above.

John 14:15 "If you love Me, you will keep My Commandments. 16 "And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;

17 that is the Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you, and will be in you.

If we fail to recognize the "Eternal Nature of the Holy Spirit" we may underestimate the Eternal value of this New Covenant Anointing which IS the Holy Spirit, Himself.

The "indwelling Holy Spirit" has come to participate with us in fulfilling the Eternal Purpose of God!

Therefore, He will be with us FOREVER!

To resist or ignore this "in-filling" of the Holy Spirit today is uninformed, extremely naive or just plain stupid.

Both the casual minister and the casual Christian seem to have misunderstood, rejected, ignored or have been persuaded that this "indwelling Holy Spirit" was just for the Apostles or the early church and is not necessary today.

Some of the things that have been preached and the dozens of books that have been written are so anti-Holy Spirit that they must be the work of one of the many anti-Christs.

Nevertheless, there is no reason for all this "religion of confusion" because all we need do is just read the Bible.

This is certainly NOT complicated.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our abode with him.

The "We will come" indicates that:

· the Father,

· the Word and

· the Holy Spirit

intend to dwell in us or with us!

But does that include EVERYBODY that believes?


""If anyone loves Me, he will keep My Word; and My Father will love him" is the qualification.

"But, Brother, you always make everything so difficult that it discourages us from trying!

Since our sins have been forgiven and we are guaranteed heaven, why would we even be interested in these things?

Didn't Jesus pay the full price for our redemption?

Isn't receiving the Holy Spirit optional and just for those who are after the gifts or for doing the ministry?"

These, and hundreds of other questions, have been asked over the last 100 years.

It seems incredible that when the Bible is so clear, why we are confronted with all this "religious confusion." How is this possible?

I blame the "ministries" for all this "religion of controversy and confusion!"

It has always been God's Purpose to reveal the Mysteries and the manifold Wisdom of God through the Church.

That should correct all the confusion!

How is He going to do that?

He accomplishes that by sending the Holy Spirit for the complete dispensation of the Church age!

If we refuse to use God's provision to reveal the Mysteries then this "religious confusion" is the result.

The problem, as I see it, is that God reveals by the Inner Anointing upon the New Inner Man.

This Anointing IS the Holy Spirit!

1Cor 2:10 For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.

11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God.

12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit Who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God,

13 which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.

My theory is this;

ALL these things are designed to be revealed by the Holy Spirit

and He will freely reveal these things, WHEN WE ARE READY!

"But, Brother, when will we be ready?"

I am guessing that all these things are revealed by the Seven Spirits of God to the Lampstand Church when our personal Holy Place is fully illuminated.

This Illumination (Eternal Light) will be the Anointing upon the Living and Abiding Word of God seen in the 12 loaves of the Showbread.

It appears (I am guessing) that this will first happen individually "within us" and in our personal Holy Place, when God (the Father, the Word and the Spirit) actually dwells there!

I am assuming that the Holy Spirit will reveal corporately, in a much fuller way, within the Collective Function of the Holy Place Priesthood.

This is the Sonship maturity and the Priesthood experience that is inherently linked to the functioning of the Body of our Great High Priest.

This Inner Anointing, functioning corporately, is what we are referring to as the FULNESS of the Holy Spirit!

In this present time, during this dispensation of the Holy Spirit, NO ONE should be content with the "down payment or the little bit" of the full Anointing!"

Surely "the Seven Spirits of God, the Seven Flames of Fire, and the Seven Eyes of the Lord" speak to us of a seven-fold fulness.

This FULNESS is the fulness of illumination within the Holy Place dimension of function!

Actually, equipping each believer to "see" and to function in this invisible realm is surely the duty and responsibility of the five-fold ministry.

This higher ministry is central to the next restoration that we are focusing upon now.

Acts 3:18 "But the things which God announced beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that His Christ should suffer, He has thus fulfilled.

19 "Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;

20 and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you,

21 Whom Heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time.

The "watchmen" are announcing on worldwide radio programs that this is the birth pains of the Great Tribulation and that Jesus will soon return.

Terrible things have already begun to happen and foreign troops are already on American soil.

The UN has permission to kill our citizens and the drones are already in place to destroy our homes. They are equipped and authorized to kill anyone who dares to resist.

The time is upon us NOW and nothing can be done about it.

America has been sold out to devilish interests.

Prepare now for the disaster.

I certainly reject this as a valid ministry within the church. Why?

The "New Covenant ministry" will be focused upon the perfection of the church and not upon preparing the believers to go through the Great Tribulation.

My question is this:

Has everything that the prophets spoken already been fulfilled?

If not, then the Heavens will still retain Jesus.

We can find several things from Isaiah 59 to 66 that have not yet been fulfilled plus many things all the other prophets spoke about.

But are bad things going to happen?

Yes! But is that the end? We don't think so! Why?

Because Jesus is NOT coming back for a baby Bride!

1John 2:20 But you have an Anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.

1John 2:26 These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. 27 And as for you, the Anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His Anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him.

All the provision for this Inner Anointing has ALREADY been made.

God does not need to do one more thing to provide this Inner Anointing that will teach us all things and reveal all the things that have been given to us by God.

"Then, Brother, why doesn't He just do it? Why is He withholding these things?"

He is NOT withholding ANYTHING.

The problem is NOT with Him but with us!

When the Seventh Foundation (Consecration) is firmly laid experientially in our life, the "Eternal Lights" {the Seven Spirits of God} should begin to illuminate [reveal the Mysteries] by the Inner Anointing.

"Then why doesn't everyone know these things?"

It is simply because so few have advanced to the Inner, Holy Place Life, and this Inner Anointing that teaches all things.

"But, why is this just now being made known?"

All this has been written down since the Bible was given and the New Covenant was established.

NONE of this is new!

"I will put My Spirit within you and you will not need any man to teach you!"


"For the Spirit will teach you all things."

"I will put a New Spirit it within you and then I will put My Spirit within you and I will cause you to walk in My Ways so you will be careful to keep My statutes and My ordinances and do them.

I will put My Laws in your mind and upon your heart I will write them."

This is the New Covenant which has already been established.

This Covenant has been built upon much better Promises!

Jesus is the Mediator and Overseer of this New Covenant!

This understanding has been given since Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Isaiah and confirmed by Jesus and by Paul.

The understanding of the Kingdom of Priests was given as far back as Exodus 19 and onward to Daniel 7.

These things were confirmed by 1 Peter 2:5-10 so there is NO EXCUSE for ignorance!

"But isn't this just Brother Leo's revelation?"

Of course not!

This is freely given to all those who have received the Holy Spirit according to 1 Corinthians 2.

"But why hasn't all those who have received the down payment been given this understanding?"

Simply because they were satisfied with the down payment!

Cor 1:21 Now He Who establishes us with you in Christ and anointed us is God,

22 Who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in our hearts as a Pledge. (Down Payment)

2Cor 5:5 Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, Who gave to us the Spirit as a Pledge. (Down Payment)

G728ἀῤρʽαβών arrhabōn ar-hrab-ohn' of Hebrew origin - a pledge, that is, part of the purchase money or property given in advance as security for the rest: - earnest.

In other words, the pledge or down payment or the earnest is just a small part of the whole thing.

What we received in the Baptism with the Holy Spirit was a little portion of the total that was always available to us.

The Gifts of the Holy Spirit is a portion of the total but NOT the fulness of the Holy Spirit.

Therefore, the Sixth Foundation must incorporate much more of the Fulness of the Holy Spirit as our personal Life experience.

It is this fulness that will adjust our experience, in order to effect our maturity, so we can participate in the Lampstand Church.


· a subtraction of negative hindrances to our development and

· the addition of the positive corrections,

are necessary for this next and fuller dimension of our "growth to perfection."
