SPIRIT AND TRUTH MODERN DAY WITNESSES

     "And a certain scribe came, and said unto him, Master,  I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus saith unto him, the foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head(Matt.8:19). Before we go feeling sorry for Jesus, as needing a bed, see this by Spirit. This is all about "headship" our glorious head at this time is desperately seeking a BODY! It begins with: "follow me" and I will make you fishers of men, and a great body had begun! Next on the day of Pentecost, 120 followers who understand prayer, create a supernatural nucleus for the body of Jesus to lay His Head!

     Watch as the wind of the Spirit blows: "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls"(Acts 2:41). Keep reading; "Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand"(Acts 4:4). Again the power of one accord: "And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both men and women"(Acts5:14) "And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith"(Acts 6:7). And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved! 

     After the destruction of Solomon's temple, God ordained a replacement by the hands of "two witnesses". Examine first Joshua and Zerubbabel, God promised these great men victory and completion despite the great mountain of obstacles. "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"(Zac.4:6) "Then said he , These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth"(Zac.4:14) "For who hath despised the day of small things for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth"(Zac. 4:10). The perfect intensified vision of God is in charge from this point on! At one point the two anointed ones were two prophets Haggai and Zachariah. Without them no day of small things could have begun! Then we see two more anointed ones; Joshua and Zerubbabel, establishing the principle of two witnesses!

     This day of "small things" has now evolved into a glorious temple not made with hands! If you can receive it; the two anointed ones and the seven eyes of perfect vision now abide in the Elect of God! The mystery of the ages is (Christ the anointed one with seven eyes) is in us the Hope of Glory! From Genesis to Revelation, the great unfolding of the mystery is by "two witnesses" that is God's pure Truth riding on Wings of the Spirit! It has brought us to Jesus a Living Stone! "Ye also as lively stones are built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ"(II Pet. 2:5).

ONE ACCORD -- A PRINCIPLE OF POWER

     What a glorious day for Israel of old, when Solomon brought the "ark of the covenant" into the newly finished temple. The best singers were there arrayed in white linen with cymbals, psalteries and harps. Asaph the chief musician was there, he was known for igniting powerful worship for King David! One hundred and twenty priests sounding their trumpets in unison! They sang about a Good Good God, whose mercy endureth forever!  Solomon prays a beautiful notorious prayer emphasizing a God who always keeps His promises! And the Bible says: "The Glory of the Lord filled the house of God". (See IIChron. 5:12-14)

     There's just something about the promises of God that brings peace, knowing that God cannot lie! His promises are unbreakable and are a foundation of strength! To the "early church" Jesus talked frequently about "the promise of the Father". Way beyond "type and shadows" this church of the First-Born experienced something greater than the dedication of Solomon's temple. After all. did Jesus not say a greater than Solomon is here? I'm talking about the dedication of a living-breathing temple not made with hands! We have 120 believers gathered in one place in one accord. Can you see by the Spirit as 120 Levitical Priests in a temple made with hands are translated into 120 witnesses in the upper room. And  that by the infilling of the Holy Ghost now have "tongues of fire" with a single voice as a trumpet declaring the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ! And this time the Glory of the Lord filled a "living -breathing Temple! I can hear the words of the Ole Prophet; "lift up your voice like a trumpet and show my people their transgressions"!   WOW what a MIGHTY GOD!!

     Emphasis needs put on the "sacred secret" of one mind and one accord. Look how this worked; "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls". This is a prefect example of Jesus coming in the Sound of a Trumpet! The true mind of Christ must begin to think only in terms of Spirit ! Jesus said I am come to set Fire to the Earth! Watch this "consuming fire" spread; "Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed: and the number of the men was about five thousand"(Acts4:4).  This Fire is out of control: "And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch"(Acts5:12).  "And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women. Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one". Guess what happens next?  The Apostles get arrested by religious people!

APOSTLE PAUL A BREED APART

     "And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time"(ICor.15:8).  Even though the "zeal of the Lord" in the heart of Paul was not according to Spirit, Jesus recognized the kind of heart He is always after! Jesus knows how to turn a heart towards Himself. To the Philippines, Paul cataloged his credentials; "Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of Hebrews as touching the Law, a Pharisee":  A true overcomer loves Jesus more than both worlds; that is the secular world and the religious world! Listen to these powerful words; concerning every one of his natural reasons that would certainly allow him to boast he said "I do count them but dung, that I may win Christ". Israel as a worldly nation and Pharisee as a religious nation! When Apostle James tells us not to love the world, you should know there is two destructive worlds!

     There came a supernatural drive in Paul to preach Jesus among the heathen. Immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood neither with the apostles before me. He needed what all true overcomers need; alone-time with Jesus!  Paul chose Arabia a large desert, isolated and suitable to kill the flesh and provide meditation. Apostle John adds: "the whole world lieth in wickedness"(IJn.5:19). This word "world" in Strongs Concordance specifies "ordered arrangements"! Not talking about our beautiful creation, but any man-made systems that opposes the "anointing" is against God and these are the anti-christs  John was talking about!

     Now consider the times relevant to the days of the Apostles, and compare those days to our own. In Colossians chapter two, Paul writes a master piece! "Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world (SYSTEMS) and not after Christ"(Col.2:8). This exposes the Greek system. Their philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle expressed views similiar to our "new age movement" One such movement  called "syncretism" picked out highlighted pieces of many different religions and merged them together. This creates a monstrous HYBRID!

     Next, "Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days":(Col.2:16) Here Paul exposes the legalism of the Judaizers . They were just as bound at that time as if they were still captive in Egypt. Bondage is still the enemy of our freedom in Jesus. Here's what Jesus did: "After these things Jesus walked in Galilee: for he would not walk in Jewry,...(Jn.7:1) Jesus separated himself from their system which desired to kill him and returned to Galilee.

     Since three's a charm we conclude with Paul exposing Roman influence. "Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind"(Col.2:18). God loves humility but it must be genuine, seeking Jesus alone without wanting reputation! "For there is one God, and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus" God is against all "mysticism" our mediator is not an angel! Likewise God chooses "saints" not Rome! Beware of "angel worship" and "saint worship"!

THE CALVES OF OUR LIPS

     The words prophesied by Isaiah must be connected to Jesus' actions in showing his disdain for the buyers and sellers in the "soon to be " destroyed temple! Thank God, the old would be replaced with the new. "Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon my altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people".(Isa. 56:7)  How can "burnt offerings" be accepted and not rejected? Hosea chapter fourteen begins with a prayer of repentance for Israel. The prayer stresses "turning around" leaving the strength of flesh and finding the "Calves of our Lips"! A powerful deliverance available for "all people"!  "...Take away all iniquity, and receive us graciously so will we render the calves of our lips"(Hosea14:2).  Judaism gives way to a SPIRITUAL HOUSE FOR ALL NATIONS!

     Did you catch that word "graciously"? Here comes the Grace of God for "all people" and when it becomes a reality the calves of our lips create a sacrifice acceptable to God! King David understood: "Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. Then said I, lo, I come in the volume of the book it is written of me"(Psms. 40:6-7). Powerfully followed up in the epistle to the Hebrews: "By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name"(Heb.13:15). This is vital in participating in bringing forth FRUIT!

     Jesus elaborates on Isaiah's words: "...It is written, my house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves" This should help us understand Jesus cursing the fig tree just after his angry reaction in the rejected temple.This is fulfilling the prophecy of Jeremiah! "And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say we are delivered to do all these abominations? Is this house which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold even I have seen it, saith the  Lord. But go ye now unto my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of my people Israel"(Jer.7:10-12).   SHILOH'S RESULT WAS NAMED ICHABOD !

     Early one morning Jesus travels to Jerusalem and he is hungry! I have an idea he was "spiritually hungry" for his own people to receive him. He passes a fig tree looks really pretty, full of nice leaves but no fruit; "Let no fruit grow on thee hence forward forever"! Here's the revelation; this fig tree represents Jerusalem and all of its surrounding idolatry! Just as the name of God was removed from Shiloh, the name of Jesus is taken from this situation. Plenty of leaves (religious activity) but zero fruit! "And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore displeased. And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, have ye never read out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise"? Jerusalem's result was BROOD OF VIPERS!

DISCOVERING THE TRUE ISRAEL

     By the Spirit there is simplicity in Christ but man-made doctrines tend to distort spiritual clearness.  In the parable of the wicked Husbandmen the vineyard of the Lord is so abused the Lord of the vineyard takes a drastic step indeed. (see Matt.21:33-43)  "Did ye never read in the Scriptures, The Stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing and it is marvelous in our eyes? Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof".  Here's the revelation; the nation that receives the kingdom of God is not a natural nation, it is now a "holy nation a Royal Priesthood"; the True Church of the Living God! 

     "Now will I sing to my well beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a wine press therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes. And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, between me and my vineyard. What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: And I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. For the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgement, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry (weeping). (Isa. 5:1-7)

     It should be obvious the rejected stone is Jesus who came unto his own, and was not received. The drastic step of the Lord of the vineyard was to reject the wicked generation that rejected him, and give the True Spiritual vineyard to Spiritual Israel!  Hear the words of Jesus: I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. JESUS IS THE NEW ISRAEL! "Every branch in me that beareth not fruit, he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it that it may bring forth more fruit"(St. John 15:1-2) In-Christ no more wild grapes; "Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing".

     Jesus' powerful ministry along with His crucifixion and resurrection are well documented in history. His victory over Satan and hell is well established! But the time is now to awake and fully know that these things must become EXPERIENTIAL inside those who profess His Great Name! "For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh (Phil.3:3). "And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, upon THE ISRAEL OF GOD" (Gal.6:16).
