CHRIST THE ANTIDOTE REGARDING DEATH 

Part 102.

Behold I Am Doing A New Thing!

By Ralph W. Knowles

''Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.'' Isa 43:19. NKJV.

I ask the question when Isaiah made this prophecy what was meant by the phrase ''a new thing'' did it mean the old patched up, or the old what we have known for so long added to? What I see is something that we have never known or had revealed to our spiritual eyes before this time. Let us consider the phrase once again ''Behold, I will do a new thing.''

''Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.'' Isa 43:19. Amplified. Will you not give heed to it?

Can we accept into our thinking that every skerrick of the old is to be exchanged for an experience that is COMPLETELY NEW. Keep well in mind that these wonderful predictions of old were not only to Israel but actually glorious prophecies also meant specifically for us today! We would also mention that these things are verified by the apostles John, Paul & Peter. The salvation to be revealed in the last day, 1Pet 1:5.if any of us think that it has yet been fully revealed I am strongly persuaded that we are sadly mistaken!

''I am going to do something new. It is already happening. Don't you recognize it? I will clear a way in the desert. I will make rivers on dry land.'' Isa 43:19. GOD'S WORD.

A word of warning if we are listening to those who are still teaching the 'part old mixed with part new', forget it, as according to the prophet Isaiah this is not the message. '' I am doing a NEW thing!''

I discern the comment, this is over-stretching things a little; When we mention a spiritual desert we are describing a place that is barren to full end-time revelation, but in the verses that we have perused a startling statement is made by the prophet ''I will clear a way in the desert. I will make rivers on dry land.'' I am more than a little persuaded that this very word is interesting a reaching-out people that are in a dry place, that is they are void of the true perception of what ''a new thing'' really means, they are in a dry land; the promise to you is ''I will clear a way in your desert & I will make rivers to flow in or on your very spiritual dry land''

Many years ago whilst I was the church scene for a short while I proudly thought I knew it all, then a gradual change altered our opinion. A little instruction by the Spirit & also that which 'Implanted Divinity' or shall we say our Christ-conscious identity was revealing things to me that were way out to what we had understood at that time. I needed confirmation & sure enough at the very right time we met Marj Stampa a wonderful woman of spiritual insight & when I would ring her & share what I was seeing she would quite often say something like ''oh I was shown that in 64, or we saw that in 69''. This is how we were receiving confirmation. Today we are passing on to yourselves quite a lot of what we have known for some time plus what Spirit is enlarging upon today & that is a completely NEW THING. The hard thing for most is to leave that which they have been comfortable with for much of their son-ship life. I believe that Deity is rattling our cage & loving it & also telling us that there is a deeper walk yet to come, in a nutshell the truth of what Deity is wanting would be, ''all of your being!''

The reason why? Well to quote the words of a long past well known entertainer. ''You aint seen nothin yet''.

The Attitude That Jesus Was Contending With Was

One Of, Don't Worry She'll Be right Mate!


''Do you not say, It is still four months until harvest time comes? Look! I tell you, raise your eyes and observe the fields and see how they are already white for harvesting.'' Jn 4:35. Amplified.

''Are you not saying that, 'Still four months is it, and the harvest is coming'? Lo! I am saying to you, Lift up your eyes and gaze on the countrysides, for they are white for harvest already." Jn 4:35. Concordant Literal.

I would interpret the word gaze in our case to mean, meditate on it, think about, it or give time in your thinking to saying that we have four months. This was not the attitude that Jesus was looking for even at that time; how much more would this apply to us today?

Way back when this was written, Jesus was holding His listeners to task for their non-compliant attitude; if we stay with the same way of thinking as regards the fullness of our Deity's coming to be glorified within ourselves we will unfortunately not be of the true attitude regarding the words of the very old hymn ''Lord I want to be in that number when the saints go marching in''.

''Now the judgment (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world]. Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world shall be cast out (expelled). And I, if and when I am lifted up from the earth [on the cross], will draw and attract all men [Gentiles as well as Jews] to Myself.'' Jn 12:31-32. Amplified.

The ruler, the prince! Because of our past teachings & understandings our religious acceptances have beguiled us into thinking that these terms have to do with an entity we can put the blame on, in other words man has interpreted much of scripture to please the religiosity of what is most widely accepted & have not even considered that there could be another deeper interpretation, as per a BRAND NEW THING.

''Now is this world to be judged; now the Prince of this world will be expelled. But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself." Jn 12:31-32. Moffatt N.T.

We see that Moffatt would mention the Prince of this world, in another place the God of this world is mentioned, these are all the same thing. Who is it & what is it that man exalts more than anything else? Vanity, all is vanity so says Paul in Rom 8:20 in the KJV. This word vanity is described in the High Road Dictionary as ''Want of reality, fruitless action, empty pleasure, idle show, great conceit of ones self''.

Do you understand the truth of these things? When we leave the religiosity that most have taken for granted we leave our vanity, the prince or the god of this world. If we truly desire the simplicity of unadulterated truth we must put aside anything that smacks of the religiosity of another power. The concept of the exaggerated SAW-TAWN is still the ancient lie of putting the blame on another instead of realising that the most deceitful one of all in this world is man's lower self, his false mistaken identity!

To return to the thought of ''when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself''. The usual way of interpreting this verse is not wrong but let us consider a deeper way, a Most Holy Place way of understanding this verse. As we begin to follow A NEW THING we are lifting up the revelation of Deity & as we dispel the OLD & follow the NEW we are lifting our understandings up from our old religious thought & acceptances, others in turn will notice & also follow & hungry souls will be drawn to yourselves even as the clones of Deity. This is the interpretation that our Loving Progenitor would have you to consider, so when he is lifted up 'from our earth', that is from our EARTHLY way of thinking, ''I will draw all men to myself'' through yourselves, in all of this we are most conscious of the fact that we are, ''Crossing The Line Of Trying To Attain And Letting That Which Is Within Appear As Outward Form!'' Keep in mind that this is in keeping with our title, Behold I Am Doing A New Thing!

There Is Nothing More Religiously Deceitful Than A Man Who Is

Trying To Blame The Dragon For His Own Shortcomings!

''No more much I will speak with you. Is coming for he of the world ruling, and in me not has nothing.'' Jn 14:30. Greek Diaglott N.T.

''I will not talk with you much more, for the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.]'' Jn 14:30. Amplified.

''Hereafter I will not talk much with you; for the prince of this world comes; and yet he has nothing against me.'' Jn 14:30. Lamsa N.T.

In our Most Holy Place experience who & what do we think that the prince of this world would represent? To answer I will pose a second question, who is the prince in most peoples lives? The simple answer is, if we are not too religious, it is our very own self wills. Is the penny dropping yet? Now the next verses should make us realise that our loving Progenitor is drawing & revealing a new thing & taking away all of our past religiosity, not with the idea to harm us! NO! We are being illuminated by being judged.

''Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.'' Jn 16:11. KJV. We would add 'revealed'!

''of judgment, because the prince of this world hath been judged.'' Jn 16:11. American Standard.

And so this is now being caught up & being realised in our thinking!

''Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the

power of this air, of the spirit that now worketh on the children of unbelief:'' Eph 2:2. Douay Rheims

Bible.

Once again who is the prince of this world? The answer is that to the majority it is their very own will their flesh, their mistaken false identities, self will is king, self will is their prince, self will is following the god of this world. Please notice that this is directly opposing many of the accepted religious doctrines that are propounding the son-ship message. No matter truth must & will prevail, our Deity is not wanting to harm anyone but to bring us to the high place of knowing the purity of the experience of a forerunner man-child that is to rule all nations; Something must give & if we are stubborn I assure you Deity will not bend. I recall an experience that I once had when the Spirit lovingly coerced me along a certain line & it was not in line with my plans & I ignored the prompting. I will not tell you what happened next but it was not pleasant, but in short my Guide being Deity did not bend. Did my Wonderful Progenitor stop loving me? No of course not, if you can believe it I was being mightily loved & blessed all along. Do not ever oppose what you know to be Spirit guidance, or you will come out learning a hard lesson that maybe could have been avoided!

''wherein ye once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the powers

of the air, of the spirit that now worketh in the sons of disobedience; '' Eph 2:2. ASV.

''In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the

glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.'' 2 Cor 4:4. KJV.

''in whom the god of this eon blinds the apprehensions of the unbelieving so that the illumination of

the evangel of the glory of Christ, Who is the Image of the invisible God, does not irradiate them.'' 2Cor 4:4. CLV.

The word irradiate is an expressive way of saying that the the simplicity of truth is not penetrating

the unbelieving! The following verses would need to be considered most carefully!

''Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God,

and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;'' 2Cor 10:5. KJV.

''[Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing

that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away

captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),'' 2Cor 10:5. Ampified.

''pulling down reckonings and every height elevating itself against the knowledge of God, and leading into captivity every apprehension into the obedience of Christ," 2Cor 10:5. Concordant Literal.

''There is a class of people who are pure in their own eyes,'' Prov 30:12a. Amplified. XXXX

A Forerunner Who Was Both Zealous And Jealous!

''For I am zealous for you with a godly eagerness and a divine jealousy, for I have betrothed you to one Husband, to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But [now] I am fearful, lest that even as the serpent – our lower mistaken identity - beguiled Eve by his cunning, so your minds may be corrupted and seduced from wholehearted and sincere and pure devotion to Christ.'' 2Cor 11:2-3. Amplified.

''For I am zealous for you with the zealousness of God, for I have espoused you to a husband, that I may present you as a pure virgin to Christ. But I am afraid, that just as the serpent through his deceitfulness misled Eve, so your minds should be corrupted from the sincerity that is in Christ.'' 2Cor 11:2-3. Lamsa. NT. From The Ancient Eastern Aramaic Texts Of The Peshitta.

Paul was no doubt sharing the mind of the Spirit, consider the words ''I have espoused you to a husband, that I may present you as a pure virgin to Christ'' Do you feel the compassion & the caring concern of the Deity who is inspiring these words. This emotion of our Wonderful Author Creator has never ever abated even though at times I/we have felt the love & emotion of Spirit at certain times more than others, keep in mind ''I change not'' ''I am the same yesterday today and forever''. ''I will never leave you or forsake you''. May I also add that when at times for certain reasons you have been low you have known this Loving one or your Christ-consciousness as the ''Glory and the lifter of my head''.

A thought to share with you, all of the blessings of Deity that you have experienced have come from within. ''Out of your belly shall flow rivers of Living Waters''. It is no different today all of our spiritual power & ability is resident within each & every one of us, it proceeds from within our very eternal being. Unfortunately many think in terms of their beginnings at Gen1. You as a 'Christ- consciousness one' existed with the ONE, as the corporate one who quoted these words,, ''And now, Father, glorify Me along with Yourself and restore Me to such majesty and honor in Your presence as I had with You before the world existed''. Jn 5:17. Amp.

We must realise that the Christ-consciousness in the man Jesus is uttering these very words, & this Christ-consciousness in the man Jesus is not one iota different from the Christ-consciousness that you possess. Why? The answer is that we are all one corporate body & as the Godhead which has the

''Father Son & Spirit = representing the Mother-aspect'' would consist as one, we are also in a similar spiritual category. This cannot be understood academically or naturally, neither can the corporate Christ-consciousness Son be understood any other way except in Spirit or by spiritual revelation! Having said that let us return to the above verse which tells us ''restore Me to such majesty and honor in Your presence as I had with You before the world existed''. If you have an open & inquiring heart you will realise that as a Christ-conscious possessor that this is referring to none other than your very own Christ-consciousness corporate self! No wonder our forerunner ''Was both Zealous & Jealous'' also in my in opinion in Spirit Paul was mouthing far deeper truths of the future than he in his mind had yet realised.

Swallowed Up By Life!

''For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.'' 2Cor 5:4. NKJV.

''For while we are still in this tent, we groan under the burden and sigh deeply (weighed down, depressed, oppressed)--not that we want to put off the body (the clothing of the spirit), but rather that we would be further clothed, so that what is mortal (our dying body) may be swallowed up by life.'' 2Cor 5:4. Amplified.

We would ask ourselves the question, what would be the meaning of the words to us today ''but rather that we would be further clothed?'' It would seem more than possible that many would need to lose first some religious garments that they are clothed with at the moment so that there would be room for us to be properly clothed with further new garments, otherwise we would be weighed down & sweltering with being too overdressed! We cannot be too over dressed with our Christ-consciousness Identity but the needless garments of the lower religious trappings are certainly a hindrance to our Most Holy Place experience!

''And He will destroy on this mountain The surface of the covering cast over all people, And the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever, And the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For the LORD has spoken.'' Isa 25:7-8. NKJV.

''And He will destroy on this mountain the covering of the face that is cast over the heads of all peoples [in mourning], and the veil [of profound wretchedness] that is woven and spread over all nations. He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it.'' Isa 25:7-8. Amplified.

The veil of profound wretchedness that is WOVEN and spread over all nations. What a sad truthful description Isaiah is giving us as regards the spiritual state of the world, the word woven depicts such a strong hopeless circumstance, but then we read ''He will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever, and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth''. On the mountain, this mountain I believe is in or on our Most Holy Place understanding;Yes on the mountain of our Christ-consciousness Identity, this is where the enlightenment & victory is taking place TODAY. Wonderful glorious days that we are living in that is in the fact that our lower mistaken identity is being Swallowed Up By Life!

The Cutting Edge Has Never Been Popular As The Blade Is Always Sharp!

Science in the world today is discovering some fantastic things, especially in the medical field, many years ago I was very friendly with a man named Peter Van Wunich who was connected with my cousins family, he was a most talented man & after giving up a musical career he studied to become a Chiropractor. This all happened, a number of years before I experienced the beginning of any spiritual change in my life.

At this time I was experiencing back problems which was the result of not being aware of a receding tide & diving from a boat into shallow water. My friend Peter began giving me back adjustments which were most successful, Also at this time I was attending a well known Melbourne hospital for something altogether different & when the doctors learned that I was being treated by a Chiropractor one of the doctors warned me to stop being treated by my friend Peter or there would be dire consequences.

I was quite offended by her demeanour & thought it was quite an injustice that a doctor would be of this attitude. In those days most of the medical profession had no time for chiropractors & thought they were a scourge. The next time we kept our hospital appointment the doctor did not waste any time & getting straight to the point she asked, did your friend treat you this week, I answered in the affirmative & she dismissed me from the hospital struck my name off the list & told me that I was banned for life. Now to explain fully why we have written the above. Chiropractors, even though in the early days they were badly ostracized always knew that they had much to offer to benefit the well being of the natural man & at that time they were a cutting edge - as it were – we are not only applying this to chiropractors but to all forms of new kinds of medical benefits that have been looked down upon over the years.

The cutting edge as you will have gathered refer to people in many spheres who see something that to them is important & most needful to & for the advancement of mankind but because it is new it is inadvertently met with opposition, yet if it is important enough to the one or ones with the seemingly new or different idea or thought, it along with the messenger becomes what some have termed a cutting edge. I am fully persuaded that the NEW THING in the spiritual sphere even though it is met with opposition will CUT-THROUGH & will be seen to be truth even though it may be hurtful & distasteful to some.

Incidentally over the years things have changed quite radically & nowadays chiropractors are employed by many hospitals, thanks to the sharp cutting edge or those who stuck to their guns! In closing this thought the cutting edge needs to be sharp to be effective this is the reason it is not popular. Why? A cutting edge blade is always sharp!

I And My Father Are One!

''For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.'' Isa 9:6-7. KJV.

''For a child is born to us, and a son is given to us, whose government is upon his shoulder: and his name is called the Messenger of great counsel: for I will bring peace upon the princes, and health to him. His government shall be great, and of his peace there is no end: it shall be upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to establish it, and to support it with judgment and with righteousness, from henceforth and forever. The seal of the Lord of hosts shall perform this.'' Isa 9:6-7. Brenton's English Septuagint.

To understand what we are about to say here you will need to adorn or arm yourselves with an acceptance of a 'cutting edge attitude' as some you will need your revelation eyes to be opened. We have touched on these particular verses previously. The very first words indicate that a child is to be born; in my personal experience the wisdom & the Eternal cleverness of our Great Deity almost boggles the mind but I must add not the Spirit, this wonderful verse has a number of applications, we are most interested in how it applies today to those who are walking in their Christ-consciousness identities. We have in past articles mentioned that ''Ye all of you are God's'' Ps 82:6-8. Jn10:33-35. In conjunction with this, what Child would the mind of Deity be referring to in this verse to us today? I would reply without any hesitation a ''And she brought forth a MAN-CHILD, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.'' Rev 12:5. KJV. Note that the ''government is upon his shoulder'' & His name is called ''The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace'' How could this apply to some of us living today? Deity has foreordained the elect to fulfill this very role. Hear these words to realise our Deity's love & designation for the ''very elect'' ''Rejoicing in His inhabited earth and DELIGHTING in the sons of men''. Prov 8:31. Amp.

It Is The Heart Within That Defiles A Man!

''And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:'' Mark 7:20-22. KJV.

"No," he said, "it is what comes from a man, that is what defiles him. From within, from the heart of man, the designs of evil come: sexual vice, stealing, murder, adultery, lust, malice, deceit, sensuality, envying, slander, arrogance, recklessness, all these evils issue from within and they defile a man." Mk 7:20-23. Moffatt NT.

The following is a direct copy from an earlier article that we wrote, the reason for the repeat is its significance.

Quote. ''For longer than we wish were not true the world of Christendom has sadly accepted the fact that it has been ONE on the outside of us, an actual being known as Satan a SAW-TAWN that has been the problem. If we care to do a little searching we will find that God's solution to what maybe a dilemma to many is always simple to those who are sincere searchers, the more profound the truth, the simpler it always is to the ready earnest seeker.

ש śâṭân saw-tawn' From H7853; an opponent; especially (with the article prefixed) Satan, the arch enemy of good: - adversary, Satan, withstand. Much of the information in our biased references would go to much trouble to prove that it is a Satanic being & not just an adversary in the TRUE sense of the meaning yet the answer is so glaringly simple. The true translation of many theories that most automatically accept from our well known now somewhat out of date references & dare I say it even Concordances which in my opinion are in some ways similarly infiltrated as the Jesus time traditional biased Sadducee-cal & Pharisaical points of view, which can also be compared or likened to our former outer court & holy place understandings. The truth of the majority of what we are declaring can be proved simply by usage, which is the true context of the complete content of whatever the passages of the subject that are in question. Religious tradition in any age has always been an enemy to progressive truth. For instance in the following which we have mentioned previously.

''And there stands up an adversary against Israel, and persuades David to number Israel,'' 1Ch 21:1. Concordant Literal.

''And there standeth up an adversary against Israel, and persuadeth David to number Israel,'' 1Ch 21:1. Young's Literal.

''SATAN [an adversary] stood up against Israel and stirred up David to number Israel.'' 1Ch 21:1. Amp. Who does the Amplified plus the other two above versions clearly point out that the true meaning of Satan is? An adversary. What caused David to number Israel when it was strictly forbidden? If we are honest with ourselves we must condescend to the truth that it was nothing more than his lower fleshly identity.

''But David's heart smote him after he had numbered the people. David said to the Lord, I have sinned greatly in what I have done. I beseech You, O Lord, take away the iniquity of Your servant, for I have done very foolishly.'' 2Sa 24:10. Amplified.

Now the question needed is what caused David to do this? This was all from his Satan, his adversary, his traducer, his slanderer, his false accuser, his impatience, his flesh; Which comes from where? This defiling came from within himself & not from any separate entity from outside himself; which information we have swallowed so glibly in the past. According to Mark 7:20-22, we are told quite specifically that it all comes from within & not from without. We are presenting this mainly from the Most Holy Place position. To remotely understand what we are advocating here we will need to throw aside every skerrick of our former outer court & holy place religiously inspired understandings.

To do this we need to be reminded of the words of Jesus.

''I have still many things to say to you, but you are not able to bear them or to take them upon you or to grasp them now.'' John 16:12. Amplified. This in my opinion would apply to us more than ever in this ''salvation to be revealed in this last era'' 1Pet 1:5. Also. ''a sharer in the glory (the honour and splendor) that is to be revealed (disclosed, unfolded):'' 1Pet 5:1b. The time was not for just then but more than ever intended for the time of even now, this is what Jesus had in mind not just the time of the disciples in which Jesus said that you are not ready ''to grasp them now.'' He knew that there was much, much more than even the disciples - not the apostles - yet remotely understood to be dealt with than their infantile religious understanding could perceive at that time. To what I am seeing the religious world has been steeped in so much fleshly beguiled enticement that it is incredibly-incredible to say the least.

But in the words of Jesus we can say with assurance, ''And he said--That which is coming out from the man, that defiles the man; for from within, out of the heart of men, the evil reasoning's do come forth,'' Mark 7:20.'' End Quote.

The Snake And Its True Identity!

''Now the snake was wiser than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, Has God truly said that you may not take of the fruit of any tree in the garden? And the woman said, We may take of the fruit of the trees in the garden: But of the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God has said, If you take of it or put your hands on it, death will come to you. And the snake said, Death will not certainly come to you: For God sees that on the day when you take of its fruit, your eyes will be open, and you will be as gods, having knowledge of good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and a delight to the eyes, and to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit, and gave it to her husband. And their eyes were opened '' Gen 3:1-7. Bible In Basic English.

Please notice that the above was said only to the woman, also this whole setting is an analogy or type for our instruction. Personally I think that anyone of us would have a hard time proving that any of the first three chapters of Genesis are in exact chronological order. The word serpent or snake carries with it the meanings of (whisper, spell, enchanter, learn by experience, diligently observe) & is surprisingly related to the word Psyche in that the word beast or creature is from H5315 which means SOUL OR PSYCHE . In connection with this, we find at the very end of the 3 rd verse of Amos 9 the words ''there I will command the serpent and it shall bite them.'' If we read from the 1 st verse the context is most interesting. If we think that we can escape from the reality of our mistaken identity & try to reach a higher plane in a snake or 'lower self' inspired way as Eve tried, he will cause the truth of our true fleshly identity the - serpent or snake - to bite us as it were to bring us back to the reality of our lower self our flesh which is the culprit that ''defiles a man'' which is not a separate being a SAW-TAWN or Satan which many think is one who is without. The moment that the psyche – which is not Spirit - tries to entice us to believe that we can be flesh God's & that our eyes can be opened & that we ''will not surely die'' this deception would occur when listening to the snake even the psyche. The whole purpose here is to show us that the snake or serpent represent the natural mind which would try to tell us anything but the truth, yes it would try to tell us that we can be like God in our natural man which has completely confused & led Christendom astray in an insidious religiosity.

The depth of this is still being reached & uncovered; insomuch that our deceptions in the outer court & holy place experiences have become such realities to the religious; Such is the power of the creative mind of man. It is that which is within that defiles a man & not a separate SAW-TAWN that is without which the deceived religious world would advocate that is He is the tempter & not our lower natural man. The truth in this is that the true reality of the word adversary is not a being called a literal Satan who is – as some with different opinions would affirm - on the inside or outside of every man but is simply our lower mistaken fleshly identity! This remains a fact no matter what religious tradition has been passed onto us in the past. I thought that we would once again make reference to the stones.

''And you should not be presuming to be saying among yourselves, 'For a father we have Abraham,' for I am saying to you that able is God, out of these stones to rouse children to Abraham.'' Mat 3:9. CLV.

We also mentioned that the hardest stone is man's lowered identity or flesh nature ''that wage war against the soul'' in opening the word recently I was pleasantly surprised in seeing the following verse staring at me

''A new heart will I give you and a new spirit will I put within you, and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.'' Eze 36:26. Amp.

''and do not think to say within yourselves, We have Abraham as our father. For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.'' Mat 3:9. MKJV.

So to return to theme of the true identity of the snake which represents the stony heart, the lower self or the hard heart. In contradistinction let us thank our wonderful true Christ-consciousness that these things are being seen for what they really are & we are able to discern where Spirit is taking us. The words ''Death will not certainly come to you'' or as in the KJV ''Ye shall not surely die'' This is of course telling us that ''They that live after the flesh shall die but they who live after the Spirit shall live''. Wonderfully if we take this for today those who are following after their Christ-consciousness eternal pre Genesis Job 38:7 identity & are ''Crossing The Line Of Trying To Attain And Letting That Which Is Within Appear As Outward Form'' will be glorified even as a corporate body yes even as those who are caught up unto their Progenitor & His throne & shall rule all nations. Rev 12:5. Ps 2:8-9.

To Bring To Maturity The Human Experience Of Man Necessary

To Be Perfectly Equipped For His Office As High Priest!

To which of the angels has it ever been said, sit at My right hand with me in my royal dignity till I make your enemies a stool for your feet. Are not the angels ministering spirits sent out in the service of Deity for the assistance of those who are to inherit their full salvation that is being revealed right now in this last time. My Most Holy Place rendition from Heb1:13-14. 1Pet 1:5.

''SINCE ALL this is true, we ought to pay much closer attention than ever to the truths that we have heard, lest in any way we drift past [them] and slip away.'' Heb 2:1. Amplified.

''For it was not to angels that God subjected the habitable world of the future, of which we are speaking. It has been solemnly and earnestly said in a certain place, What is man that You are mindful of him, or the son of man that You graciously and helpfully care for and visit and look after him? For SOME LITTLE TIME You have ranked him lower than and inferior to the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor and set him over the works of Your hands, [Ps. 8:4-6.] For You have put EVERYTHING IN SUBJECTION UNDER HIS FEET. Now in putting everything in subjection to man, He left nothing outside [of man's] control. But at present we do not yet see all things subjected to him [man].'' Heb 2:5-8. Amp.

The 'some little time' is actually from the eternal outlook of Deity expressing itself as opposed to man's way of viewing time. In the opinion of Deity even though everything is not yet under the control of man we are promised that very soon it will be so! That day must come to pass & has not our Deity promised that the corporate body will become completely aware of this when the time is right? Thehuman experience of man has been going through his sufferings-judgments to equip him for his

destined office as HIGH PRIEST even after the order of Melchizedek, which of course depicts the power of an endless life; Now in retrospect we realise that in spirit none of us will really die but this endless life that is being referred to here is one that would equate to an Enoch experience ''we shall be changed''. Meaning that we will not have to experience a fleshly death as most do & go to the grave; No but ''we shall be changed from the mortal to immortality''.

''For since [it was] through a man that death [came into the world, it is] also through a Man that the resurrection of the dead [has come]. For just as [because of their union of nature] in Adam all people die, so also [by virtue of their union of nature] shall all in Christ be made alive. But each in his own rank and turn: Christ (the Messiah) [is] the first-fruits, then those who are Christ's [own will be resurrected] at His coming.'' 1Cor15:21-23. Amplified. In Adam all die but in our Christ-consciousness we shall ALL be made alive.

''He might bring to nought and make of no effect him who had the power of death----that is the adversary - or prince – And also that He might deliver & completely set free all those who through the haunting fear of death were held in bondage throughout the whole course of their lives'' Heb 2:14b-15. Amp.


I hear a Word speaking in my soul,

AWAKE, AWAKE!Your spirit is made whole;

I am speaking at this time

In the spirit of your mind,

ARISE AND SHINE! My glory to unfold!

My Spirit is now speaking to your mind,

You can proclaim a Word that is CHRIST-KIND!

O, my Word that's in your mouth

You just have to speak it out----

By impulse, soul & spirit are aligned.

The impulse of the spirit in your mind

Can speak a Word of Life to all mankind;

When your spirit's in control

Of your body through your soul,

I'll draw through you all men my LIFE to find!
