PUT UP AGAIN THY SWORD

     Take a look at Micah's prophecy in Chapter 4:  "And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; (Gentile nations) and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks : nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it. For all people will walk every one in the name of his god (small letters), and we will walk in the name of the Lord our God (capital letters) forever and ever "(Micah 4:2-5).  As for the people of God we must "put up again our sword"  and take up the SWORD OF THE WORD! In this day of Revelation, our mindset has to be in the present tense, because the deceivers place everything in the future, centered around the "rapture doctrine" that is a damaging mindset! Here's what Jesus said:"But all this was done, that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled".
 
     Then said Jesus unto him, "Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword"(Matt.26:52).  Here's the Revelation: God's Mighty Man of War, who commanded "legions of Angels" came and established a "powerful gospel" by sowing seeds, and revealing the principal "Parable of the Sower"! Can you see by the Spirit how Jesus right before our eyes is beating swords and spears into Farming Equipment!  A far-off nation has been transformed into "a holy nation" and a royal priesthood! The Kingdom has been taken from those who refuse to bring forth fruit, and given to those who cherish "fruits of the Spirit"! We will walk in his paths, for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. This New Zion, and this New Jerusalem, is God's True Spiritual Church, built from "lively stones" oozing with Anointing! The Hebrew word for law is Torah, and is not talking about Moses' Law but means "instruction" . We show the way and lead the way!  Thank God, I can hear the Word of the Lord as it rings out from New Jerusalem, declaring  "rest under the fig tree"!
 
     Although the "parable of the sower" gets extensive, I want to make a point. In the explanation Jesus tells us the field is the world. Then he goes on to say while men slept his enemy sowed tares among the wheat. So we now have "children of the kingdom" along with "children of the wicked one". Jesus said in order not to damage the roots they must be left alone to grow together until harvest. True kingdom children have their roots drawing from the Spirit of god and are in love with the supernatural anointing! We know our dependency is on Jesus, together our relationship has proven many victories. Children of the wicked one draw from all other kinds of spirits except true anointing. Along with the Name of Jesus, they would like to snuff out the anointing and the Name of Jesus!  It is the root system that makes one established in Christ and standing tall clothed in white linen which identifies those "in Christ" for white linen represents righteous acts and righteous footsteps ordered by the Lord!  So we plainly see two different kinds in the world.

     Another parable will reveal two kinds in the so-called church!  The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a dragnet used for fishing. The parable of the sower has no mention of evangelism, Here we do,  for Jesus told the disciples he would make them "fishers of men". When the net was full the good went into the vessel and the bad were cast away (Matt.13:48). So just as in the world were wheat and tares now we see good and bad in evangelical circles! We love being around Saints with true relationship with Jesus, however many just go through the motions.  The prophet said: "all people walk some in the name of his god, but we (God's Chosen) will walk in the name of the Lord our God Forever and ever  (Micah4:5).
