These are the Things That We Know!

Knowing the Things Revealed.

Revealing the Things that are Known.

Is the Church Destined to Become Victims?

That Is NOT What has been Revealed!


December 31, 2016

Deut 29:29 "The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law."

They are so many things we don’t know about God’s Eternity and that leads to speculation and strange and twisted doctrines. If we really focused upon the things that God has revealed it should limit the speculation and give us strong insight into Gods Eternal Purpose. There is wonderful hope in just knowing the things that have been revealed!

There is really no excuse for ignorance of the things that God has revealed. Why? That is because the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever. We are guessing that the “Gospel of the Conspiracies” is the result of this ignorance! My complaint against the “Gospel of the Conspiracies” is they have made the church the VICTIMS of evil conspiracies that seem to increase and get more violent on a regular basis. They seem to ignore the fact that Jesus is Building His Church in the midst of all conspiracies and the work of the evil one. Of the 50 or so conspiracies that I have heard over the last four years NONE have actually happened. A few weeks ago the Conspiracies Prophets were saying that December 12 was supposed to be a disastrous day in USA and everyone should be on the alert. Three weeks ago the word given is this; The Queen of England (the conspirators say) announced this would be the LAST CHRISTMAS. In searching for conformation on the inter- net I can find NO QUOTE like that so I consider this fake news. What the Queen of England knows about prophesy is not known! I personally think that what God is saying is about our preparation for Eternity and NOT about conspiracies designed for our destruction.

I want to focus upon WHAT HAS BEEN REVEALED!

Just to list the things that have been revealed in Scripture will require a very large document. Of course we cannot list EVERYTHING that has been revealed in Scripture but at least we are familiar with quite a lot that will be helpful. The secret things are held within God’s Sovereignty and He only reveals those things to further His purpose. However, throughout church history He has revealed certain things to those who were chosen.

Acts10:41 not to all the people, but to witnesses who were chosen beforehand by God, that is, to us, who ate and drank with Him after He arose from the dead.

Rom11:7 What then? That which Israel is seeking for, it has not obtained, but those who were chosen obtained it, and the rest were hardened;

If we chose to list the things that have been revealed, we might use a numbering system but there is no logical order to list them. Therefore, we will use a random method to record at least a few of things that has been revealed. Our “system” has always been to begin with God and then reason down to man and how man adjusts to God’s Will and to His people fulfilling His Purpose! We generally begin with God in Genesis one or in Ephesians one and then add other scriptures.

As many of us have discovered, those who begin with man or with earth and this fallen society, and then try to reason up to God, generally create a man centered or earth centered gospel. Most cults began that way.

IF we can understand some of the things that have been revealed from scriptures it should prevent this error! We set the correct viewpoint WHEN we begin with God and then reason down to man.

Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will,

Eph 1:9 He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him 10 with a view to an administration suitable to the fulness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things upon the earth. In Him Eph 1:11 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, after the counsel of His will, 12 to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ should be to the praise of His glory.

Rom_8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

Rom_9:11 for though the twins were not yet born, and had not done anything good or bad, in order that God's purpose according to His choice might stand, not because of works, but because of Him who calls.

Col 1:28 And we proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man

with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ. 29 And for this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me.

2Timothy _1:9 who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity.

Here we learn that God determined the End from the beginning and that “end” is called God’s Eternal Purpose! All those “who are saved” are also called; Not to Go to Heaven but “called” according to His own purpose!

Therefore, fulfilling God’s Eternal Purpose is our absolute first priority after being “saved.” Why? That is WHY God saved us and then predestined us to His Purpose, after the counsel of His will. To ignore His Will, His Way or His Purpose is a terrible mistake!

The one purpose for Christian ministry in all ages is this; “And for this purpose

also I labor, that we may present every man complete in Christ.”

Each of us were selected and chosen BEFORE the foundation of the world as is revealed in Ephesians 1:4! If we were chosen to fulfill God’s Purpose before the world began then any deviation from this plan is gross error!

Another of the errors being preached is this; When we are born again we are as righteous and as holy as we will ever get. Why? That is {they say} because God declares us righteous. Of course, He has imputed to us, righteousness. Imputed Righteousness is NOT experiential Righteousness nor is it Righteous Acts. That is declared Righteousness until He has the opportunity to make us Experientially Righteous and then for us to complete Righteous Acts.

Eph 1:4 He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will.

One of the mysteries that is often mentioned is the “mystery of His Will” but it is already revealed that growing up to completeness or to perfection or to the finishing, IS HIS WILL. Thinking about DOING SOMETHING before BEING SOMETHING is a common mistake! How do you know that? That is because every man was predestined to a glorious end as sons! God has predestined us to His Purpose, after the counsel of His will.

What has been revealed by the Counsel of His Will is that “Before the foundation of the world, before there was anything, God already had predetermined what would meet His Desire and fulfill His Purpose! This is our first priority and an absolute that is revealed. To focus upon anything other than fulfilling His Purpose, and to bring joy to His heart, is a big waste of time and a serious missed opportunity. Preaching more or irrelevant messages is a BIG waste of time.

If we focus upon Genesis 3 and man’s desperate situation, being dead in sin, being without God and without a covenant, and then focus upon how God can meet man’s need but totally neglect and ignore God’s Plan and Purpose for creating and saving man, is very common today! By ignoring God’s Eternal Purpose we miss the very reason for Calvary, Salvation, the Kingdom and the Holy Spirit’s arrival. This is the primary mistake of the visible church and this is what creates this pitiful “man centered Gospel.” What is revealed that the Kingdom Within, as a vital and disciplining Government, is the method God uses to make us Righteous.

This is already revealed; God’s Purpose for “man” or the Church IS to come to the measure of the Stature of the fullness of Christ or to come to “perfection”! WHY? This maturity is essential to participate in God’s Predestined Purpose! It is not enough to know that God has a Purpose for Man but it is essential to know that God has predestined man to participate as King / Priests (Mature Christians and Sons) in His Purpose!

Christ Jesus has ALREADY set specific ministries in the church for the perfection of the saints! What we find is that the “Gospel of Salvation” has been substituted for the “Gospel of the Kingdom” and has come to mean “to Save man so he can go to heaven.” This is THE “Man Centered Gospel that we hear, everywhere.”

The God Centered Gospel is that God has redeemed man to “do His will, to be obedient and to fulfill His Eternal Purpose! Why? That is so we can participate in His Eternal Government.

Most every Evangelist has limited himself to this “man entered gospel of accept Jesus as personal Savior, pay your tithe and go to heaven when we die”. All of this gospel is “man centered Gospel” and just a small part of the Gospel of the Kingdom! The Gospel of the Kingdom is a “God Centered Gospel” and deals with WHY God saved us. Just a shallow reading of Ephesians 4:11 and many other Letters will reveal that fulfilling God’s Eternal Purpose is our goal and our calling. Why? ALL ministries are called for the completion or for the “perfection of the saints!” Any “ministry” that says “that is not my calling” is ignorant or confused.

Eph 4:10 He who descended is Himself also He who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) 11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a mature {perfect} man, to the measure of the stature which belongs to the fulness of Christ.

Of course none of this is new but IT HAS BEEN REVEALED, therefore, it is for us and our children forever! In this same way hundreds of things have already been revealed even if we have NOT discovered or experienced them yet!

Well, brother I understand what you say but what difference does it make because “WE ARE ALREADY SAVED?” This is another error of “ministry” that insists that “What has been revealed, plus all the promises, now already belongs to us because we are already saved!”

This gross problem of a “Man Centered Salvation” exists because the focus has been upon “BEING SAVED” rather than upon “redeemed man” fulfilling God’s Eternal Purpose.

This question is asked as a portion of My Thesis; Has the church been predestined to become a victim? Has the Church been predestined to become “OVERCOMERS.”

Isa 59:20 "And a Redeemer will come to Zion, And to those who turn from transgression in Jacob," declares the LORD. 21 "And as for Me, this is My covenant with them," says the LORD: "My Spirit which is upon you {the Redeemer}, and My words which I have put in your {the Redeemer} mouth, shall not depart from your {the redeemer} mouth, nor from the mouth of your offspring, nor from the mouth of your {the Redeemer}offspring's offspring," {sons} says the LORD, "from now and forever."

If redemption is supposed to result in this Isaiah 59 experience, we should NOT deny the possibility!

From Isaiah 59 to Isaiah 66 God has already revealed very much concerning His

Eternal Purpose for man and by association for the Church He is Building ! For example;

Isa_65:17 "For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind.

Isa 66:20 "Then they shall bring all your brethren from all the nations as a grain offering to the LORD, on horses, in chariots, in litters, on mules, and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem," says the LORD , "just as the sons of Israel bring their grain offering in a clean vessel to the house of the LORD. 21 "I will also take some of them for priests and for Levites," says the LORD.

Isa 66:22 "For just as the new heavens and the new earth Which I make will endure before Me," declares the LORD, "So your offspring and your name will endure. 23 "And it shall be from new moon to new moon And from Sabbath to Sabbath, All mankind will come to bow down before Me," says the LORD . 24 "Then they shall go forth and look On the corpses of the men Who have transgressed against Me. For their worm shall not die, And their fire shall not be quenched; And they shall be an abhorrence to all mankind."

2Peter_3:13 But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells.

Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven

and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw

the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, "Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be among them, 4 and He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." 5 And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He *said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true."

These are things that have been revealed and these things are FOR US and Our Children! Those who insist that these things are only symbolic and not literal have not bothered to investigate what Has Been Revealed. Isaiah has already revealed much of what we see in the Book of Revelation that was revealed by Jesus after His Ascension! That means that the Father wants us to KNOW the things that are revealed!

Dan 7:10 "A river of fire was flowing And coming out from before Him; Thousands upon thousands were attending Him, And myriads upon myriads were standing before Him; The court sat, And the books were opened. 11 "Then I kept looking because of the sound of the boastful words which the horn was speaking; I kept looking until the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and given to the burning fire. 12 "As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, but an extension of life was granted to them for an appointed period of time. 13 "I kept looking in the night visions, And behold, with the clouds of heaven One like a Son of Man was coming, And He came up to the Ancient of Days And was presented before Him. 14 "And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations, and men of every language Might serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion Which will not pass away; And His kingdom is one Which will not be destroyed.

Dan 7:25 'And he will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. 26 'But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever. 27 'Then the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of the Highest One; His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.'

This is part of the Gospel of the Kingdom (and God’s Eternal Purpose) that has been revealed, therefore, this Revelation of the Predestined glory of the Saints is for us and our children. However, His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions will serve and obey Him.'

That all the dominions will serve and obey Him is also a curent requirement even though this is NOT even mentioned in the Gospel of the Give-a-ways or the Gospel of the Bargains!

When we introduce the Gospel of the Kingdom, this other Gospel of the Half-Priced Sale is finally exposed as some aberration of truth.

John 3:35 "The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. 36 "He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him."

This is another thing that has been revealed that belongs to us and our children forever. We may easily accept the first part of John 3:36 but even reject the last part of the same verse. We may have heard the excuse that this verse was before Calvary but now salvation is simply by believing and confessing.

Heb 5:8 Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. 9 And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation, 10 being designated by God as a high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.

Jesus, the Savior, has now become our “source of eternal salvation” because He is our “high priest according to the order of Melchizedek.”

This is another thing that has been revealed that belongs to us and our children forever.

Now Christ Jesus is no longer revealed as just “the Savior” but as the King of a Kingdom that has absolute Sovereignty over both Heaven and Earth . The Sovereignty of the saints depend upon their serving and obeying the Absolute Sovereignty of the King. It this “revelation” that reveals why the Kingdom Government MUST be a functioning Government within us before we can Obey the King and exercise our God given rights to Kingdom Authority! Attempting to exercise Kingdom authority out of a ego centered life to promote a “ministry,” did not work for me and now I know that is a big waste of time!

Now we can make an application to the Church He is Building. Why? That is because the “church that men are building” is functioning far below their predestined “Life, Ministry, Authority, Dominion, Calling and Purpose!”

But, Brother, aren’t you criticizing the church that is doing the best it can in this corrupt world system? Yes! However, this is NOT the church that has focused upon the “Gospel of the Kingdom” but upon the “Gospel of the Half- Priced Sale.” But, brother, isn’t that just who we are? I certainly hope not! Why?

The Kingdom Church that He is Building will serve and obey Him. It should be obvious that the baby saints, confined to and housed in spiritual nurseries, cannot qualify for obedience to the Kingdom Government and that is why the “saints” must come to the Measure of the Stature of the Fullness of Christ Jesus! But what if they are ignorant or refuse to grow up into the fullness of Christ?

But, brother, it seems that you always imply that the visible church is not growing. How do you know that?

That is true that I do not believe the visible Church is growing up in ALL things into Christ! That is simply because, and I think it is obvious, that the visible church is living far below the standards and requirements of the Kingdom Government of God! But, brother, why do you think that “Kingdom Requirements” are a necessity for Real Christianity and why are you so concerned? Isn’t Christianity just about believing something about Jesus and then telling somebody about Him?

Even though that is a popular concept and an Evangelical message, that is not what has been revealed as God’s Eternal Purpose! What HAS BEEN REVEALED must become the center of our message to a corrupt and disgraceful world!

When we add the Kingdom requirements to our gospel, certain demands are revealed. For example; The requirements for Discipleship and our obedience to what has been revealed. In order to participate in the Kingdom and in God’s Eternal Purpose there are certain “Requirements related to Growth and Maturity” that are clearly revealed! These are the things that belong to us AND our children. If the “visible church” is ignoring these requirements, we can assume that is NOT THE CHURCH HE IS BUILDING!

But, brother, our salvation is behind us and we have accepted Jesus as our personal Savior! Since this is our experience, brother, why should we be concerned about anything since we are already “saved?” This “partial gospel” assumes that being “saved or born again” is the ultimate goal. However, Growing up into Kingdom Maturity will determine each Christian’s personal and eternal destiny!

Rev 19:5 And a voice came from the throne, saying, "Give praise to our God, all you His bond-servants, you who fear Him, the small and the great." 6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude and as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty peals of thunder, saying, "Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns.7 "Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready." 8 And it was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints. 9 And he *said to me, "Write, 'Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.'" And he *said to me, "These are true words of God."

This warning is something that is revealed and is for us! There are multitudes upon multitudes of saints (saved ones) in heaven but these are NOT THE BRIDE! Why? They are invited guests! Why? These did not grow up in all things into Christ! Of course some of these, like John the Baptist, are also from the Old Covenant Dispensation. Still, all these, who are Not the Bride! At least, these multitudes are ones who have qualified to be invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb. The distinction that is clearly given is that the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready." 8 And it was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

The distinction between the great multitude (the saved) and the Bride is REVEALED and that is related to her garments and to her Righteous Acts. I hope everyone can understand this distinction is not about forgiveness of sins but about her preparation, her maturity and her function! Since SHE is His Body (the Body of the High Priest) SHE will sit with Him on His Throne and be part of that Eternal Kingdom Government!

Even John the Baptist recognized that he was from the earth and could only speak from the earth dimension.

John 3:29 "He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. And so this joy of mine has been made full. 30 "He must increase, but I must decrease. 31 "He who comes from above is above all, he who is of the earth is from the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.

While John the Baptist is a close friend of the Bridegroom, he is not and cannot be the Bride! Why? He died before Calvary, before the New Creation, before the Christian era began. However, he was one of the greatest of the Old Covenant prophets.

Luke 7:28 "I say to you, among those born of women, there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he."

When we look at John’s life, this does not seem fair, but the Kingdom Dispensation for the preparation of the Church is NOT about fairness but about God’s Eternal Purpose! John lived and died before this dispensation began! He was a great prophet but he was only “born of woman” and not yet BORN OF GOD! Still, John will attend the Wedding Feast but not as the Bride but just as a friend of the Bridegroom. [Maybe, as the Best Man]

Isa 66:20 "Then they shall bring all your brethren from all the nations as a grain offering to the LORD, on horses, in chariots, in litters, on mules, and on camels, to My holy mountain Jerusalem," says the LORD , "just as the sons of Israel bring their grain offering in a clean vessel to the house of the LORD. 21 "I will also take some of them for priests and for Levites," says the LORD.

Of course the Kingdom will be made up of a Kingdom of Priests (mature Saints) and, as we have been sharing, these New Covenant King / Priests must be prepared to function in a corporate Priesthood After the Order of Melchizedek. It is clear that some will be received into the Kingdom function but only as Levites and not as Priests of this Eternal Order. This, also, contains a warning about Calling, Growth, Development and Function. There is not just one Heaven where all are equal, as is being falsely taught. Only the Priests could enter into and participate in the Holy Place (New Heaven) dimension. The Levites were from the same genealogy (Levi) as the Priests but were Not of the Grown, Mature, Sons of the High Priest. The Levites were all sons of Levi but the father of the Son / Priests was Aaron, the High Priest. All the Son / Priests were forgiven of sins through the blood, they were bathed, clothed, anointed, and consecrated but the distinction is that each was a Son of Aaron, the High Priest.

The application to the New Covenant Priesthood is this; Being a grown child of God is required to be qualified as a “New Covenant Levite” but to become a functioning Priest in the Kingdom we must be SONS of the High Priest and that means Growing up in all things into Him!

Our Living and Functioning Position in the Kingdom is based upon our ability to participate in His Government by serving and obeying Him. If we cannot obey Him, during our preparation, how will we obey Him in Eternity?

The New Covenant application of the Eternal Kingdom can be quite disturbing when we realize that it is “Our Great High Priest and His Sons” who are of that Priesthood after the Order of Melchizedek. It is even more disturbing when we understand that Melchizedek is the earth name of the Holy Spirit and the Kingdom of Priests are ALL after the Order of Melchizedek. The Kingdom of Priests is not just about the Gifts of the Spirit but about the Discipline of the Spirit! The understanding that The Holy Spirit is KING of Righteousness and Priest of the Most High God, ETERNALLY, is essential to understanding the Eternal Kingdom Government!

It is when we fully understand that when the Holy Spirit was sent, that He came as “the Priest of the Most High God and as the King of Righteousness,” that we KNOW our Obedience to Him is REQUIRED, as Jesus said. Why is this so important? That is because He is the direct representative of God to the Church and for the Church Age! But, why has He come as the King / Priest of God? That is because He has Come to dwell in us to establish the Kingdom Government within us!

What s revealed is this; Christ Jesus is OUR HIGH PRIEST, taken from among men, to be the mediator of the New Covenant. He holds BOTH His Kingship and His Priesthood for all eternity! He will always be OUR HIGH PRIEST and King Eternal.

This is just part of what has been revealed that belongs to us and our children, forever. Why is that important since we are already saved?

All your “Brethren” (from ALL Nations) will “be brought” as a “grain Offering” to His Holy Mountain, Jerusalem. However, this will also be for judgement as well as for reward. It is at the Judgement Seat of Christ Jesus that we will be assigned to our eternal position in the Tabernacle of God. Some will inhabit the New Earth, some the New Heaven and some the New Jerusalem. The Kingdom Message is designed for the Bride, the New Jerusalem.

Dan 7:25 'And he will speak out against the Most High and wear down the saints of the Highest One, and he will intend to make alterations in times and in law; and they will be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. 26 'But the court will sit for judgment, and his dominion will be taken away, annihilated and destroyed forever.

I wish to point out that what is revealed, which belongs to us, is both good and bad, both positive and negative and either for reward or for punishment. Jesus never hesitated to point out the negative things.

Rev 3:14 "And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God, says this: 15 'I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I would that you were cold or hot. 16 'So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. {Vomit you out of My body}17 'Because you say, "I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing," and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, 18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. 19 'Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; be zealous therefore, and repent.

Mar 9:43 "And if your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life crippled, than having your two hands, to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire, 44 [where THEIR WORM DOES NOT DIE, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.] 45 "And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame, than having your two feet, to be cast into hell, 46 [where THEIR WORM DOES NOT DIE, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED.] 47 "And if your eye causes you to stumble, cast it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into hell, 48 where THEIR WORM DOES NOT DIE, AND THE FIRE IS NOT QUENCHED. 49 "For everyone will be salted with fire.

If we just remember that Jesus was speaking to a Jewish People who had a Covenant with God, the warning comes closer to home. Of course this is very offensive to many ministries to suggest that there is more to New Covenant salvation than forgiveness of sins! The Kingdom message relevant to our preparation and has many warnings!

Rev 3:21 'He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne. 22 'He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'"

Many of the things that have been revealed contains many warnings about the radical changes IN MAN that are essential for participating in the High Calling. These “warnings” belong to us and to our children, forever.

We intended to answer the question; Has the Church Been Predestined to become

Victims of the World System as the Conspiracies Theories imply? Is the term “OVERCOMERS” just another term for being “saved?” Are the “OVERCOMERS” just victims who are saved?

Why has our Great High Priest insisted that those in the Lampstand Churches MUST OVERCOME to be advanced to the next dimension of Christianity, which is revealed in Revelation Chapters two and three?

Son of Solomon 6:8 "There are sixty queens and eighty concubines, And maidens without number; 9 But my dove, my perfect one, is unique: She is her mother's only daughter; She is the pure child of the one who bore her. The maidens saw her and called her blessed, The queens and the concubines also, and they praised her, saying, 10 'Who is this that grows like the dawn, As beautiful as the full moon, As pure as the sun, As [The Bride] awesome as an army with banners?'

Of course there are many groups that achieve to some category that corresponds to the “perfection” required for one of the Three Heavens. It seems clear that not ALL are “OVERCOMERS.” There are (1) the Queens (2) the Concubines and (3) the Virgins or Maidens, plus the Old Testament Saints that grew up like John the Baptist to become a prophet of the Old Covenant standards. It seems clear to me that those in either the New Covenant or the Old Covenant that have NOT grown beyond the dirt realms of their original creation from the dirt, will surely be on the New Earth. This will be a wonderful place to spend eternity. This “place” is called the “first heaven.”

Of course, we should point out that Paul was caught up to the “Third Heaven” and saw unfathomable things that he could not relate. Since all Christians can achieve to the “third Heaven, the New Jerusalem”, by “the upward call,” this is our Kingdom Message! It is this Kingdom Center that we are concerned about. Why is this different from the “Gospel of Salvation?” The “difference” lies in our eternal destiny!

However, our message has always been focused upon the Bride Company who will “overcome” and sit on His Throne, as He OVERCAME and now sits on His Father’s Throne, in the New Jerusalem! The Virgins or Maidens, of the Song of Solomon, recognize their place and call the Bride Overcomers, BLESSED. The other two groups, The queens and the concubines also, and they praised her, saying, 'Who is this (1) that grows like the dawn, As (2) beautiful as the full moon, As (3) pure as the sun, (4) As awesome as an army with banners?'

We are assuming that the Virgins or Maidens are “saved” but only achieved to the shallowest group in First or maybe the Second Heaven.

Mat_25:1 "Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps, and went out to meet the bridegroom.

2Cor_11:2 For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin.

The Bride is always presented as ONE Unit and never as Plural in number as in 10 or 5 or as Queens or Concubines.

It is in this understanding of Matthew 25 that it is clear that the Bridegroom had ALREADY RETURNED for the First group, the Bride! Why? That is because “He left the Wedding Feast” to welcome the FIVE Wise VIRGINS as guests. The FIVE are obviously “saved” but not yet perfected. How do we know that? They had barely enough Oil in their Lamp to last until the Bridegroom arrived. The FIVE VIRGINS are NOT part of the First Fruit Harvest but only resurrect at the Midnight Hour in the middle of the Tribulation. They, plural, are part of the Main Harvest and are numbered as “FIVE.” The other FIVE were not qualified to attend the Wedding Feast because the door to that event had closed. However, they were VIRGINS and had lamps and oil but not enough oil to fuel the lamps! However, they were not ready nor could they qualify to be guest at the Wedding Feast. We might speculate they will be part of the Last, Final Harvest of the Gleanings!

The warnings, that we always try to present, here are focused the Three Harvests.

Luke 12:35 "Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps alight. 36 "And be like men who are waiting for their master when he returns ‘from’ the wedding feast, so that they may immediately open the door to him when he comes and knocks. 37 "Blessed are those slaves whom the master shall find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them. 38 "Whether he comes in the second watch, or even in the third, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves. 39 "And be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 40 "You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect."

The ten Virgins missed the First Watch, the Bride, but the Five Wise Virgins whose

lamps were still barely burning, were ready at the END OF THE Second Watch, which is from Nine O’clock (PM) until the Midnight Hour! The Five unwise Virgins were part of the Third Watch, which is from Midnight until Three PM. This final part of the Harvest is called the Gleanings. The Gleanings were when they picked up what was dropped (left behind) in the Main Harvest! The First Watch is from six to nine (PM) just as it is getting dark. That is the First Fruit Harvest or the Harvest of the Man Child in Revelation 12 or the catching away of the Bride /Overcomers!

In Revelation 19 we see the Bridegroom, the Bride and multitude of invited guests from different dispensations already in Heaven and attending the Wedding Feast of the Lamb. The Queens, the Concubines; the five wise Virgins are invited guests!

The Lamb, Bridegroom left the feast, while it was in progress, to return for the five wise virgins. They, of course, were late for the feast but barely qualified to meet the requirements for participation as late guests.

The Bride / Overcomers / Manifested Sons / Kingdom of Priests group, that have heeded the SUMMON to the upward call of God in Christ Jesus and have qualified to sit with Him on His Throne, are certainly NOT victims. How do you know? They are As awesome as an army with banners?'

Well, brother, what is your point? My point is this; These are the things that are revealed and these things belong to us and to our families. Does that mean there are no Christian who are victims. Certainly NOT. However, VICTIMS are not part of the Church He is Building. The “Gospel of the Christian Victims” is popular on the Radio on the West Coast but that IS NOT the Gospel of the Kingdom.

There is the “gospel of the victims” that proceeds from the Outer Man but there seems to be another Gospel that proceeds from the New Inner Man. The Gospel of the Overcoming Church that Inherits All Things! That is the correct Gospel for today. Still, preaching that “Gospel of the Overcomers” to the casual and lukewarm church is a big waste of time. Why? Well, “we are already saved” so your gospel is offensive to us!

Rev 21:5 And He who sits on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." And He *said, "Write, for these words are faithful and true." 6 And He said to me, "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. 7 "He who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.

I hope everyone can see that Overcoming and Inheritance and Son-ship are intrigately linked together!

It is because of this “Gospel of the Half-Priced Sale” that we must point out that there is no promise of an inheritance given to the “under-comer!” However, if the “half-saved” makes the cut to inhabit the first or the second heaven, he will always rejoice! Why? He will only recognize that he went to heaven! This will also be a wonderful place with flowers, music and festivals with dancing and whatever other things the present hype can imagine. If the “under-comer” rules, it will be over one square foot! Of course if the under-comer produces nothing during his stay on earth, his eternal destiny is terrifying!

Mat 25:28 'Therefore take away the talent from him, and give it to the one who has the ten talents.' 29 "For to everyone who has shall more be given, and he shall have an abundance; but from the one who does not have, even what he does have shall be taken away. 30 "And cast out the worthless slave into the outer darkness; in that place there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

My concern that the “worthless slave groups” are always relying upon the confession of “but, we are already saved” Matra, as their excuse for being worthless! Outer darkness is reserved for those who had light but didn’t walk in it”kingdom” because they preferred darkness.

Hebrews 6:9 But, beloved, we are convinced of better things concerning you, and

things that accompany salvation, though we are speaking in this way. 10 For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love which you have shown toward His name, in having ministered and in still ministering to the saints. 11 And we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, 12 that you may not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

While too many Christians think this “kingdom” message is disgusting, too demanding, irrelevant, non-productive and one who refuses to acknowledge new souls as Mature Fruit, ready for harvest, I will rely upon that which has been Reveled about the Kingdom as my message to the church. I will accept that it is these “strange things” that have been revealed and belong to us and our children, forever!

If we are judged by our Eternal Preparation, Growth and Fruit rather than by what we believed about Jesus and forgiveness of sins through the blood, then the Gospel of the Kingdom Requirements will be justified!

Even though many have died in faith but without receiving the PROMISES, this does NOT INVALIDATE THE PROMISES or make them irrelevant. Since the PROMISES are for us, that should be our priority. Whatever cost is required to inherit the PROMISES should be seen as the greatest bargain that we could ever expect! However, the contrast is terrifying.

Rev 21:7 "He who overcomes shall inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. 8 "But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

But, brother, my goal is to just get in the first gate and “be saved.” I cannot be

bothered about all this “overcoming” stuff! I am just depending upon the Grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ, and His all inclusive Sacrifice as my salvation and ticket to heaven. When Jesus said “IT IS FINISHED” He meant everything was complete and finished so there is NOTHING left for me to do except to believe it!

Well, saved and satisfied saint, that confidence may soothe your conscience until you read the Bible but it s not too cleaver to just believe the popular gospel. The “Gospel of the Bargains” contain some strange and twisted doctrines that boarder upon lies.

Mat 24:12 "And because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. 13 "But the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved. 14 "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world for a witness to all the nations, and then the end shall come.
