This is a very good article by Ralph W. Knowles. A man in my opinion who God has used to help us have a better understand of the Third Day. I place it here for all to see May the Creator open the eyes of all people worldwide. To the truth! At the bottom you can find more information at

I have come to this conclusion that satan is our flesh and not a separate being. But has dwell in us. In Genesis it said that God told the serpent (you shall eat Dust all the days of your life) Adam was made of DUST of the earth.

In Reality, In Christ The Sins Of The World Have Been Taken Away!

Part 77.

''The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world!'' John 1:29. Amp. [Exod. 12:3; Isa. 53:7.]

In the Most Holy Place understanding the perception of sin or - the deeds of our mistaken identity - rises to another level of comprehension. In the earlier understanding of forgiveness or even remission found in our outer court & holy place understanding we find that the word forgiveness & remission are from the exact same word aphesis which interestingly are interchangeable. G859 aphesis af'-es-is From G863; freedom; (figuratively) pardon: - deliverance, forgiveness, liberty, remission.

Now as wonderful as the experience of forgiveness & remission happen to be there is a higher more deeper understanding & that is a more complete exoneration, namely an Acquittal; When we move into what many would term a third realm or the Most Holy Place experience which is referred to by many as the salvation that is now being revealed & was referred to by Peter in 1Pet 1:5. 5:1, a higher & more wonderful comprehension & understanding than the word forgiveness or remission arises, a word which is not very often used comes to the reality of our spirits & that is ACQUITTAL!

Now if it is true that because of His death & resurrection we are informed in John 1:29 that the sin of the world was taken care of namely taken away why have we not been in our experience been taking greater advantage of this, in the following we intend to share with & give you all something quite wonderful to consider. The question is asked again; Is it true that Jesus Christ ''takes away the sin of the world''? If this is so we have no reason to exclude anyone. We have mentioned the woman taken in adultery who was caught in the act. Notice that Jesus inferred that she was guilty according to the law but He also added as one has stated that; ''The first one to throw a stone must be without sin for if Christ has taken SIN away; What right have we to hold anyone guilty of any deeds of their mistaken identity?'' The mind of Christ is certainly needed in this last day.

A Higher Understanding Than Aphesis, Is ACQUITTAL!

The reason that the wonderful word ACQUITTAL is not used enough is that it is not fully understood by the majority as it is in my opinion a beyond the veil Most Holy Place understanding & is found only within ourselves, it cannot be experienced any other way. I am convinced that because of our mistaken identity - our Adamic flesh - our consciousness has been ''seared as with a hot iron.''

One thing that we need to realize is that the opposition to the wonderful redeeming truth of God is that it is not coming from another being known as Satan - which simply means adversary - who in mythical misunderstanding withstood God's throne & was kicked out of heaven; In truth God has no enemies, the enemy that would hinder ourselves is simply & purely - our adversaryour lower Adamic flesh self; in our deeper experience & the wonderful truth of complete ACQUITTAL our enemy is none other than the lowered flesh of man, this may not go down well with some of us but the greatest adversary we will ever find is the one between our own shoulder blades so to speak & the greatest opposition that we will ever know is the unbelief of the natural Adamic man. As we move on, our props of the religious fleshly understanding will be increasingly exposed.

It is our wonderful privilege to expose positive truth & in so doing this will automatically reveal that which is error. We are now going to delve into why many would find it hard to accept that in our pre-Adamic Christ self we are in possession of a complete acquittal especially in the light of this following seemingly condemning well known verse. By the way just because we have an enemy to truth, 'the flesh' does not mean that God has any enemies if He did how could He still be God of all, it would mean that God created His own enemies which He has trouble controlling, this is ridiculous & in my opinion is religiosity in its worst form. The well known condemning verse as referred to above is!

''And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done

evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.'' John 5:29. KJV.

The word damnation has over the many years been very misunderstood & condemning but very interestingly it is actually from the Greek word krisis from which our word CRISIS is derived & is actually in truth very little or no different in its meaning. It also carries with it the meaning of ''for or against'' so with this understanding let us look at this portion of the verse with a little more light ''and

they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of a CRISIS.'' A crisis is also quite often the time that a

decision is made either one way or another & this is what we are faced with whenever Christ judges us & please remember that His judgments are always righteous judgments & are judgments not only unto mercy but hear it, unto victory. ''Mercy and loving kindness and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.'' Ps 85:10. Amp. In contradiction to what we were

earlier taught judgments are not necessarily after we die literally, this is both outer court & holy place

understanding, we are all in the middle of experiencing judgment unto victory right now. Yes may I say that we are being judged into a higher place in God today. To to put all of our minds at rest, in Christ or the realm of Spirit there is really no such thing as death when we move on it is into a higher realm minus the hindrance of the flesh. Either way Christ has only good planned for us in all of His judgments.

The word resurrection is from the Greek anastasis '' G386 anastasis an-as'-tas-is From G450; a

standing up again, that is, (literally) a resurrection from death (individual, general or by implication (its author)), or (figuratively) a (moral) recovery (of spiritual truth): - raised to life again, resurrection, rise from the dead, that should rise, rising again.'' Keep well in mind that an important & major meaning of this word resurrection carries with it the RECOVERY OF SPIRITUAL TRUTH ; And this especially includes the full truth of who we really are. The old religious lowered Adamic condemning understanding of this verse is being abrogated by further end-time truth.

An Open Hearted Higher Way!

''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. Amp. We can see by these words that Jesus was preparing the followers of both then & especially now for further higher & deeper truths. The following is some of what I see that He meant. Where it mentions ''And as it is appointed to men once to die, but after this the judgment.'' Heb 9:27. MKJV. Most interpret this to mean that all men are going to die & go to the grave which is not true as we have at least three men that did not, possibly four. You ask who are they? I for one do not believe that Enoch experienced the grave, nor Elijah nor Jesus for long, incidentally there is no reliable record of Johns death. Some tried to boil him in oil but failed. There are at least five records of his death in various places, of which none are reliable.

Facts Concerning John's Death And Subsequent Existence!

This may be new & surprising to some but I am of the opinion that John was our first full forerunner & that he did not die but like some others before the resurrection did not go via the grave. We have written on this some time back & since then we have done considerable research, the reason for this is that we have felt strongly that there was more to Johns final outcome than many of us to date have realized.

According to the ''Questions on Bible Time line Product.'' regarding the subject of John the Apostle; ''No death date given by early writers. Death date is by conjecture only and is variously assigned as being between 89 AD to 120 AD.'' So there is no reliable positive death date on John anywhere in history Biblical or otherwise.

Please consider that at the time that we are referring to, that the veil had been rent in every man & whether he, man in general realized it or not Jesus had already pronounced ''it is finished''. I ask the question is it possible that John was our first full forerunner? Here are some more facts for you to consider! I will ask the question who could be more qualified to have filled the role that we are now presenting? Who more than John would realize the full meaning of the words of Jesus ''it is finished''?

He no doubt more than any other man knew the full implication of the renting of the veil, yes even within himself; Take into consideration all the books that he wrote & the deep truths that he expounded to us, this of course includes the wonderful book of the Revelation which was given to him by Christ Himself. The big point I wish to raise is that he was on the right side of the cross. All that is being opened to us today has been finished since Christ rose to sit on the right hand of power in the full presence of God. Now in closing if there is no record of John's death; I ask the question where did he go & what happened to him?I would also add if I am to believe the writings of Paul, the sons of God who are to be fully manifested are not going via the grave! Rom 8:23. Rev 12:5. If we look closely at ''And she was delivered of a son, a man child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and unto his throne.'' Rev 12:5. American Standard. When we read 'caught up to God & His throne' this is no doubt referring to the corporate body of the foretold Christ manifested sons of God who if we look at closely are the direct fulfillment of the following verse, those who are both on earth & a higher realm at the same time. ''and through Him to reconcile all things unto himself, having made peace through the blood of his cross; through him, I say, whether things upon the earth, or things in the heavens.'' Col 1:20. ASV.

Whether upon earth or in a higher realm. Also to iterate the revelation that John Bunyon received as mentioned in our last article ''In this land the Shining Ones commonly walked, because it was upon the borders of heaven. . . And this the gardener said, even to me. --- John Bunyon.

The 'all men once to die & go to the grave' understanding is an outer court holy place in part concept. Now there is a deeper third realm beyond the veil Most Holy Place concept which is of spirit only & is only within ourselves & if taken in context, to my mind answers the question perfectly & that is the ''once to die'' is a death of separation.

When do we begin ''once to die''? When we first obey the promptings of the Spirit we begin to die to self & then ''after this - comes - the judgment'' yes thank God the Spirit of Christ begins to judge us with His wonderful judgments of righteousness unto victory.

This is fully coming to all, every man. I think that a good old Hallelujah would not go amiss right now. ''And all mankind shall see (behold and understand and at last acknowledge) the salvation of God (the deliverance from eternal death decreed by God).'' Luke 3:6. Amp ''The whole human race will see God's salvation!'' Luke 3:6. Good News Bible. ''And the glory (majesty and splendor) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.'' Isa 40:5. Amp.

''That in (at) the name of Jesus every knee should (must) bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, And every tongue [frankly and openly] confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.'' Php 2:10-11. Amp.

The word confess in this verse is from the Gk Exomologeo & means to PRAISE & THANK, to my understanding I see no force whatsoever here, only a glorious realizing & revelation of a truly merciful God. The following verse brings out that this understanding is coming to all beings in all areas of Gods wonderful creation.

''So at the name of Jesus everyone will bow down, those in heaven, on earth, and under the earth.'' Php 2:10. CEV. The Concordant would tell us that ''every knee should be bowing, celestial and terrestrial and subterranean,''

As unbelievable as it may seem the day of the sword is passing, the Christ of our universal identity is now on earth instead of mortal man. In true infinite pre-Adamic consciousness we are sharing this. We are a part of a pioneer movement with no special teacher needed. As one has well stated. ''Every one of us is the temple of God and our relationship has to do with an activity of our own consciousness in which we realise that we are heirs of God, joint-heirs to all the heavenly riches, to the omnipresence, and omnipotence, and omniscience of God.''

''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. Amp. For many generations the majority have not yet had access to this understanding but soon comes the very imminent time when ''at the name of Jesus everyone will bow down, those in heaven, on earth, and under the earth.'' ''every knee should be bowing, celestial and terrestrial and subterranean,''

A True Experience Of Faith And Trust!

When peace like a river attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll;

Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,

It is well, it is well with my soul.


It is well with my soul,

It is well, it is well with my soul.

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

Let this blest assurance control,

That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,

And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

My sin ---oh the bliss of this glorious thought!---

My sin, not in part but the whole,

Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul.

For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:

If Jordan above me shall roll,

No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life

Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.

But Lord, 'tis for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,

The sky, not the grave is our goal;

Oh, trump of the angel! Oh voice of the Lord!

Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be sight,

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;

The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,

Even so, it is well with my soul.

The above written by Horatio G Spafford was first a poem & then became a hymn, it was very popular several years back & has quite as history as to the reason it was written. We felt that it would be good to share it with you & I am sure that when you read this that you too will be blessed. The following profile was written by someone who knew both Spafford & his wife many years back.

''In the 1860s life was good for Horatio G Spafford and his wife Anna. They were living in a suburb on the North side of Chicago with their five children when tragedy struck. Their four year old son Horatio, Jnr, died of scarlet fever. Disaster struck again in October of 1871 when the Chicago fire broke out and the Spafford family lost most of their real estate holdings. Even then, they did not despair. They had their home and their four remaining children. God was good.

In 1873 Spafford planned a trip to Europe. At the last moment an urgent business matter arose and Spafford could not leave. He sent his wife and four daughters ahead aboard the steamer Ville du Havre and planned to join them soon. In the wee hours of the morning November 22, 1873, the Ville du Havre collided with an iron sailing ship. Anna survived but their four daughters perished. When Anna arrived in Cardiff Wales, she telegraphed her husband, ''Saved alone what shall I do?''

As soon as he received Anna's telegram, Spafford left Chicago to bring his wife home. Sailing across the Atlantic Ocean the captain of the ship called him to the bridge. He informed Spafford that they were now passing the spot where the Ville du Havre collided with the iron sailing ship. That night alone in his cabin he penned the words to his famous hymn, ''It is well with my soul.'' His faith in God never faltered.

Following their reunion in Europe, The Spaffords returned to Chicago to begin their lives again. God blessed the Spaffords with three more children, two daughters and another son. They again named their son ''Horatio'' not for his father but for their lost son. Tragically when little Horatio reached the age of four, just as his brother before him, he died from scarlet fever. After the loss of little Horatio, the Spaffords decided to leave their home in America and settle in Jerusalem. In September 1881, the Spaffords left America for Israel.

In 1876, P.P Bliss put Spaffords words to music. This hymn is still sung in Protestant circles today. ''It Is Well With My Soul'' was first sung in public by Bliss on November the 24 th in 1876 before an assembly of ministers hosted by Dwight L. Moody in Chicago's Farewell Hall. Ironically one month later, Bliss and his wife were killed in a horrific train wreck. It is believed that Spafford took the words ''It is well'' from the Shunammite woman that lost her only son who was later raised from the dead by Elisha. 2Kings 4:26. Spafford was born on October 20, 1828 in Landsingburgh, New York and died of Malaria on October 16, 1888 in Jerusalem. Anna continued to work in the surrounding areas of Jerusalem until her death in 1923. The Spafford's were laid to rest in Jerusalem. It can be said that ''It Is Well With Their Souls.''


''To believe that we of ourselves have chosen a spiritual pathway would be egotism in its final stage. No, God has chosen us. The finger of God has touched us, not because we have earned it, deserved it, or are better than the rest of mankind, but for reasons that have to do with evolving consciousness which always comes to fruition in its own time.

''Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you. . . I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.'' As we evolve from state to state of consciousness, at last we return to where we were in the beginning with all the glory we had with God before the human sense of world was. It is not our human efforts that draw us back to God: it is the primal Substance, Consciousness, drawing us back to itself.''

The above is an excerpt taken from a portion that Joel Goldsmith very ably wrote. As we can see he was very much 'right on the mark'. ''because whom He did foreknow, He also did fore-appoint, conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be first-born among many brethren; and whom He did fore-appoint, these also He did call; and whom He did call, these also He declared righteous; and whom He declared righteous, these also He did glorify. What, then, shall we say unto these things? if God is for us, who is against us? He who indeed His own Son did not spare, but for us all did deliver him up, how shall He not also with him the all things grant to us? Who shall lay a charge against the choice ones of God? God is He that is declaring righteous, who is he that is condemning? Christ is He that died, yea, rather also, was raised up; who is also on the right hand of God--who also doth intercede for us. Who shall separate us from the love of the Christ? tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (according as it hath been written--`For Thy sake we are put to death all the day long, we were reckoned as sheep of slaughter,') but in all these we more than conquer, through him who loved us; for I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor messengers, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things about to be, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of god, that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.'' Rom 8:29-39. Young's Literal.

I Will Then Know Fully My True Corporate Identity!

''For I know that my Redeemer and Vindicator lives, and at last He [the Last One] will stand upon the earth. And after my skin, even this body, has been destroyed, then from my flesh or without it I shall see God, Whom I, even I, shall see for myself and on my side! And my eyes shall behold Him, and not as a stranger! My heart pines away and is consumed within me.'' Job 19:25-27. Amp.

He the last one will stand upon the earth as his true self, as his/Christ's full corporate glorified self, my eyes shall behold Him as my/our true self & not as a stranger; Why?

For the Adam man, the flesh, the adversary will be taken out of the way, you & I shall see Him within us, as us as the Christ who we truly are! ''And as for me, I know that my Redeemer liveth, and the Last, he shall stand upon the earth; And if after my skin this shall be destroyed, yet from out of my flesh shall I see, God; Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another: --my reins are consumed within me.'' Job 19:25-27. Darby.

My redeemer who now lives, in the last day or when the change takes place He shall stand upon the earth as His very own corporate self of who I/we are. Out of my changed glorified flesh, for I will have returned not only to my pre-Genesis experience but now with the true understanding I shall truly know that He Christ is not another but in fact has always been who I truly am; The burden & deception of the Adamic flesh will have disappeared once & for all.

''[For it is He] Who delivered and saved us and called us with a calling in itself holy and leading to holiness [to a life of consecration, a vocation of holiness]; [He did it] not because of anything of merit that we have done, but because of and to further His own purpose and grace (unmerited favor) which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago]. [It is that purpose and grace] which He now has made known and has fully disclosed and made real [to us] through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, Who annulled death and made it of no effect and brought life and immortality (immunity from eternal death) to light through the Gospel.'' 2Ti 1:9-10. Amp.

We are informed that this calling is not because of any merit of ourselves but to further His own purpose of increasing Himself through a wonderful plan which incorporates the glorious GRACE of Himself & has been in His heart since before the the world began in the eternal aeons which is mentioned in Job 38:7 & is now being disclosed made real to us by & through the appearing of the Christ Himself in His saints – separated called out ones – which is happening even NOW. Take note this Christ has already annulled death & has already brought life through the truth of the Gospel.

''Who saves us and calls us with a holy calling, not in accord with our acts, but in accord with His own purpose and the grace which is given to us in Christ Jesus before times eonian, yet now is being manifested through the advent of our Saviour, Christ Jesus, Who, indeed, abolishes death, yet illuminates life and incorruption through the evangel" 2Ti 1:9-10. Concordant Literal.

The Concordant Literal would say that we are called in accordance of His own purpose & grace which incidentally includes the ''lowering into disobedience that He would have mercy on them all alike'' Rom11:32. Why? That mankind would rely wholly on the His grace & not our own Adamic fleshly self righteousness of what we think we can earn by our own goodness which is absolutely taboo. Even though this was given in times eonian it is now being manifested, this Great Christ is presently having us realize that He has 'abolished death and is illuminating life and in-corruption through the gospel.'

The Religiosity Of The World Is Now Being Laid Bare!

''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.

When we look closely at the phrase God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones. These words of Jesus Himself are very pertinent and in the light of what we are seeing today what stones could He be referring to? The hardest stone in the Most Holy Place way of understanding is man's Adamic fleshly mistaken identity. The stone which is of any other way of perception other than the full truth that is only within man; Not having faith in a God somewhere up in the sky apart from the He that is within. In connection with this thought let us peruse this next verse in 1Peter both in the Amplified & the Concordant.

''Beloved, I implore you as aliens and strangers and exiles [in this world] to abstain from the sensual urges (the evil desires, the passions of the flesh, your lower nature) that wage war against the soul.'' 1Pe 2:11. Amp.

''Beloved, I am entreating you, as sojourners and expatriates, to be abstaining from the fleshly lusts which are warring against the soul,'' 1Pe 2:11. Concordant Literal.

These passions & worldly lusts have to do with that which would keep us from our true Christ identity which is only within which is a corporate organism & not an organization. I would repeat that these verses in our Most Holy Place understanding is referring not so much to the outer court & holy place understanding of doing good but to the deception of our lower nature perception which would try to keep us from the simplicity that we alone are the temple of God, the word alone is meant in the corporate sense as in reality there is really only one, God plus Himself of who we truly are as an identity. What is it that we are told is warring against the soul, the passions of the flesh, the lower nature? But good news, God is able to raise up children from these very hard stones to the one who Jesus said that he rejoiced to see my day even the day of our great forerunner Abraham who was described by One Who mattered, as being the father of the faithful.

''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. Amp.

When Jesus mentioned this verse He knew that He had a lot of embedded religious mythology & tradition to be uncovered in the future, so as far as the truth of a being or a person called satan He would have to leave many things where they were at that time, hence the statement, 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. Today is the grasping day of third day STRONG MEAT. ''And the LORD stirred up an adversary unto Solomon, Hadad the Edomite: he was of the king's seed in Edom.'' 1Ki 11:14. KJV. This word adversary is from following. śâṭân saw-tawn' From H7853; an opponent; especially (with the article prefixed) Satan, the arch enemy of good: - adversary, Satan, withstand. H7854, is also part of this & gives even more strength to the meaning of SAW-TAWN or adversary. We do not need a lot of insight as to how the beguiled O.T adherents gave this adversary a name apart from their own fleshly selves as they allowed this name saw-tawn to become - as it is still in religiosity todaytheir literal satan, unfortunately they thought they needed & still think that they need someone other than their own lowered flesh identity to take the blame. Such is religiosity which is still in vogue today & is still insisted upon by many. To substantiate this truth let us look further on in the same chapter.

''And God stirred him up another adversary, Rezon the son of Eliadah, which fled from his lord Hadadezer king of Zobah: And he gathered men unto him, and became captain over a band, when David slew them of Zobah: and they went to Damascus, and dwelt therein, and reigned in Damascus. And he was an adversary to Israel all the days of Solomon, beside the mischief that Hadad did: and he abhorred Israel, and reigned over Syria.'' 1Ki 11:23-25. KJV. So to my my mind God has given us much in these days good reason to search out a matter. If we were to interpret these verses the way that some would believe, to be consistent we would have to believe that Rezon was himself satan, he surely was an adversary or opponent in the true sense but not what tradition & religiosity has handed us over the many, many thousands of years. As one writer of the past has stated. O consistency thou art a jewel.

The Spirit Will Guide You Into All Truth.

One of the chief strongholds that is used to substantiate the understanding of saw-tawn - which simply means adversary – is the book of Job. What a lot do not realize is that this book was written over a period of many, many years. Some of the language used in the book comes from the second millennium B.C. (2000-1000), while other words date from the period of the kings. Most likely the story of Job is an ancient story (with its setting perhaps late in the second millennium) that was put into its present written form around the time of Solomon. This data that I am giving you is from the preface of Job as given in the Amplified translation.

The conversation of God with the sons of God is in the 7th verse of the 1st chapter. ''And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.'' Job 1:7. This word translated Satan is from the same word as is found following verse in Numbers 22:22. ''And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary or opponent against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.'' Num 22:22. Amp.

In both verses the word satan & adversary is found in the same root 7854 meaning saw-tawn or simply adversary or opponent. We ask the question did the angel of the Lord become a literal satan or simply an an opponent or adversary which is the simple true translation. How come that this word is translated sometimes as adversary & at other times when a blinding religious traditional occasion is overruling the literal word Satan is used. We cannot have it both ways & be truthful.

We will deal with a number of further references & in the light of what is being revealed let us dissect each of them closely one by one & see what we can find, incidentally we do not have the space & time to deal with every text but with a number that we think would be the most important in uncovering truth. ''And there stands up an adversary against Israel, and persuades David to number Israel,'' 1Ch 21:1. CLV. ''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. Both the above CLV & Young's translate this verse 100% correctly. The Amplified explains what the word satan means which is of course an adversary meaning an opponent. What caused David to number Israel? If you read carefully, in the context you will find it was because of his impatience.

Can we guess where his impatience, his adversary, his opponent, his satan originated from, his flesh of course which is the adversary or the mistaken Adamic identity of each & every one of us.

There are some very seemingly strong opposing statements which would seem to support that the adversary or devil or Satan would be a separate entity, one is the following.

''Now when Michael, the chief messenger, doubting the Adversary, argued concerning the body of Moses, he dares not bring on a calumniating judging, but said, May the Lord rebuke you! Yet these indeed are calumniating whatever they are not acquainted with, yet in whatever they are naturally adept, as the irrational animals, in these things they are being corrupted." Jude 1:9-10. Concordant Literal.

The meaning of the word calumniate is to spread false harmful statements. Now being a searcher for truth & not wanting to undo that which is true, we have diligently researched this verse & found that there is no corresponding verse any where else in the Bible including all of the O.T. The majority of researchers agree by far that this verse is from a very, very disputable source called the '' Assumption of Moses'' this title alone should raise suspicion. The Assumption of Moses is not recognized by a majority by far, both those who are promoting the last day salvation & many others who are not, namely those who are familiar with the source. There are other theories regarding this verse that we have perused but to myself they are far less than convincing. So in my opinion anything that would try to make the adversary into anything more than a lowered fleshly opponent carries no sway.

In verse 6 in Ps109 we read ''Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.'' My King James margin would term the word Satan as simply adversary, in verse 20 we read ''Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the Lord and of them that speak evil against my soul.'' Please notice that adversaries are plural showing clearly that if this word was to literally mean a Satan it would mean that there would be more than one. To make it clearer verse 29 would tell us ''Let my adversaries be clothed with shame.''

To my mind to this leaves no doubt that this is referring to the fleshly lowered nature of the mistaken identity. Note that these are the very same words that in other places are used to wrongly describe the adversary as a satanic separated being rather than our own real adversary the lowered fleshly identity. There is much more that we could write to support what we are being shown in this Most Holy Place day but we will close on a most important point, let us now turn to the 12 th chapter of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

''And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, CALLED the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.'' Rev 12:9-10. KJV.

''And the huge dragon was cast down and out--that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who is the seducer (deceiver) of all humanity the world over; he was forced out and down to the earth, and his angels – cohorts - were flung out along with him.

Then I heard a strong (loud) voice in heaven, saying, Now it has come--the salvation and the power and the kingdom (the dominion, the reign) of our God, and the power (the sovereignty, the authority) of His Christ (the Messiah); for the accuser of our brethren, he who keeps bringing before our God charges against them day and night, has been cast out!'' Rev 12:9-10. Amp.

I would describe part of the above as. Then I heard a strong loud voice in the heavenly places within our very own being. I would also add that this issue we are writing would have a very small part in the accuser of our brethren in being put in the rightful place of our understanding. What to man has really been the age old serpent? Please notice carefully that he has been called & known by most to date as ''the Devil and Satan'' just because he has been called by these titles does not necessarily make it true. The true seducer was forced out in other words the true identity is exposed & his agreers were flung out with him, for the accuser of our brethren has been uncovered, revealed, cast out.

Let us iterate as to what has been revealed, the true arch enemy of man is not & has never been a separate being that has been called Satan - this has been man's scapegoat all along it has been his very own mistaken identity which despite seemingly very strong religious beliefs to the contrary that have beguiled us, I truly believe by rightly dividing the word of truth, this what we are presenting has been there for us all to see the whole time, especially since it was declared ''it is finished.'' We iterate the heading. The spirit will lead and guide you into all truth.

As we have shared previously the small snake in Genesis eventually became a great red dragon in Rev 12. How did this happen? First in the minds of men who wanting a scapegoat created a religious power other than themselves, believed it & eventually became empowered by their own delusion.

''But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to worship Him. God is a spirit, and they who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.'' John 4:23-24. MKJV.

I would add that even though the usual interpretation to what we are declaring would be some-what different it has not been our intention that this would be presented in a wrong spirit, especially with those who have not yet reached the same conclusion.

''He said to them, To you it has been given to [come progressively to] know (to recognize and understand more strongly and clearly) the mysteries and secrets of the kingdom of God, but for others they are in parables, so that, [though] looking, they may not see; and hearing, they may not comprehend.'' Luke 8:10. Amp. We repeat! O consistency thou art a jewel.

In Reality, In Christ All The Sins And Misunderstandings Of The World Have Been Taken Away!

So all of the truth which is in the Christ within us is being worked out until it becomes our reality also & then God becomes ALL IN ALL. Despite world events there is nothing other than a wonderful future for all of us in our Great & caring concerned God. As David Wilkerson the author of the Cross And The Switch-blade who was a proven Prophet in the Pentecostal realm told us when once prophesying of future events, ''God has given me five words & they are.'' God Has Everything Under Control!
