Come To Order Please

Today's message is one that if you have been attending a fundamental evangelical church, will be very foreign to you.

In fact you might outright reject it.

We present it to show that there is more beyond the basic principles that you may have been taught over and over again without any further progressive growth into some of the deeper things of God.

This is the kind of apostolic teaching that some Christians have been receiving for years. In fact this message comes to us from January 15, 1978.

There were and are some Christians who declared war upon unbelief.

They issued a clarion call to the sons of God, sons of the Kingdom of God to possess their inheritance now.

This was their time of transition, they took a step out of old order influences into the Kingdom era.

Truly these kind of messages set the stage for the coming years.

A step into the Kingdom...


 One of the beautiful things seen in the fresh birth of the early Church was their spontaneous moving into divine order.

It was not something difficult which had to be taught to them.

Because they had not learned a wrong way that had to be unlearned, they readily came into line with the true pattern that they were to follow.

The second chapter of Acts describes it:

So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and there were added that day about three thousand souls.

And they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the
breaking of bread and to prayer.

And everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles.

And all those who had believed were together, and had all things in common.

Acts 2:41-44.

  In that beautiful togetherness, in their dedication to the apostolic Word and their continual practice of fellowship, the family of God came forth.

The divine order in all things was natural to them.

  At today's stage of the restoration of the New Testament order, Christians have many traditions to unlearn.

During the five or six hundred years since the Protestant Reformation, the restoration has been progressing slowly.

In fact, most of the Protestants still need some reformation.

The restoration can no longer be identified as only the Protestant Reformation, because at this time we are truly seeing restoration among the Roman Catholics also.

There never has been a time like the present, when millions of Roman Catholics are being filled with the Holy Spirit and are speaking with tongues and entering into the gifts pf the holy Spirit.

  We must understand what is taking place.

The living Word that God is speaking in this day is so revolutionary and so battled that only a small minority of Christians are willing to accept it.

As a remnant of God's people move on to deeper revelation, they will be looked upon as speckled birds ( Jeremiah 12:9 ).

However, the restoration will continue to accelerate, and the present truths which are being battled today by principalities and powers will be accepted tomorrow by a greater segment of people.

  Large basic segments of apostolic foundational truths are being restored to the Church so rapidly that many will probably find it difficult to apply them.

In the early Church, the believers walked in truths much more readily than believers do today, for they have so many traditions to unlearn.

God must erode the false foundation from under them until it collapses.

His living Word is doing that very thing.

  Believers who are walking in divine order today must look to the Lord for the expanding vision of what His order is to be.

God is raising up an end-time company of believers, a remnant who will not become a denomination; neither will they become a law unto themselves and form some independent walk.

They will not become segregated and isolated as a little group who think they are the only people of God and that wisdom will die with them.

They will recognize that they are simply an ordained segment in the Kingdom of God.

  God has many ways of working to bring to pass His purposes.

In the Old Testament times He chose Ezekiel to be a watchman on the wall ( Ezekiel 3:17 ).

Today God again has prophets who visualize the things that are coming, lest the enemy should overtake His people or deception be their portion.

Lest the purposes of God be frustrated, men again give warning and guidance in directive prophecies.

God is raising up a prophetic community upon whom the anointing of the Lord is to rest.

They are to go out and position themselves so that those who are hungry and looking for light can find the way.

  In the days of American history before the Civil War there was a system called the Underground Railroad.

It was not really a railroad.

Sometimes it was a ferryboat crossing a river or a lake.

Sometimes it was just a little hunter's cabin tucked away in the wilderness.

It provided a way for the slaves who were breaking through to freedom to find help as they made their way up into states where they would be recognized as free men.

The stigma that was upon the black people was also suffered by many who were seven-eights white; they, too, were sold into slavery because of that small Negro heritage.

They suffered the same barbaric cruelties as the black people, cruelties which were sometimes perpetrated by their white relatives.

People who loved God and hated slavery provided a way to get those people through to freedom.

  This illustrates the way that God will bring people out of Babylon.

In the coming days, we will find that divine order, like an 'underground railroad,' will be the means whereby hungry people can be smuggled out of Babylonian traditions and brought into freedom.

They must be conditioned to freedom and literally liberated because Babylon is slavery; it is not just an organization.

It has placed mental and spiritual chains upon its people.

These chains are invisible, but they are there, nevertheless; and the people must be liberated from them.

That will not be done unless God has a people who are moving on in the grace of God in divine order.

Then they will be able to liberate others to move in this grace.

  In order to walk with God now, we must become revolutionaries in the true sense.

Revolutionaries without submission give birth to anarchy, but revolutionaries who are under divine order will bring in the Kingdom.

We must keep that firmly in mind.

There has to be a way whereby we become wholly submissive to the Lord.

Although it will be difficult, we must live with continual intense determination against slavery, bondage, and oppression of every kind, and at the same time find ourselves totally and irrevocably dedicated to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the perfect rule and order that He is bringing forth in His Kingdom.

  The Communists have a way of achieving their purposes.

They train men to become revolutionaries, wholly dedicated to revolution; but these men are not permitted to be a part of the new government that is set up.

When the Communists move in and take over a country, they kill the revolutionaries.

They did this in Cuba and in other countries too.

Why do they kill them?

On the human level, it is almost impossible for a man to destroy one order and still have real dedication to build a right order.

Most revolutionaries are not dedicated to building; they are only dedicated to destroying an establishment.

We must have a dedication that exceeds their dedication.

 While continually crying against that which is out of order, we must cry to God for that which is in divine order.

This is not a middle-of-the-road process; it requires a true vision of God's Kingdom.

  As you read about Isaiah, Jeremiah. and Ezekiel, you will find them crying out against the system that was wrong, proclaiming judgment, and prophesying its fall.

Their eyes were upon the future.

They saw the coming kingdom, and they were prophesying concerning it.

Get this vision clearly within your heart: down with the old and up with the new that God brings forth!

It is not easy to see.

Only an incurably naive and romantic person, one who lives in the past with his head in the sand of traditions, can accept the present state of affairs in the world.

This is an age in which people make much ado about nothing.

While the world is going berserk, some are even becoming so stirred up about ecology that it seems they would actually dedicate their whole lives trying to perpetuate certain endangered species of animals.

It is true that the world is ready to die in the midst of its own garbage and pollution, but why not forget about that and work to bring forth the Kingdom.

When the Kingdom comes into full manifestation, God will bring forth species of animals that we have never thought of before.

Why try to cling to an age that is dying?

Let us give ourselves to bringing in the Kingdom.

Cease to merely exist.

Live your days with purpose and direction.

Keep on top of the spirit of this age in your thinking.

Keep your spirit focused upon the Lord.

Redeem the time because the days are evil ( Ephesians 5:16 ).

  Whether or not you understand everything that God is doing, your spiritual protection will be found in being a part of the order that He is restoring.

It is essential to realize that every ministry that God raises up will have some area of weakness.

This is deliberate on God's part because the ministries are not to be infallible.

They are to have an area in which they can be complete only by what others members of the Body of Christ supply.

This s true of an apostle as well as a prophet or any other ministry.

They need your prayers, and you need their ministry.

There must be a mutual submission and exchange in order that God's plans can be fulfilled.

  Endeavor, above everything else, to find the leading of the Lord, because there must be a breakthrough into another dimension, much like the mirror in Alice in Wonderland.

There is a way to walk through into another dimension, on the other side of the mirror.

Now we see through a glass dimly, but on the other side of it we are going to know even as we are known.

Then we will no longer prophesy in part, but there will be a perfect revelation to our hearts ( I Corinthians 13:9-12 ).

This breakthrough into another dimension will be achieved by the individuals who move collectively as a body.

The breakthrough into the next age will be made by a company of the sons of God, not by an individual son here and there.

The great victory over Satan and the great manifestation of the Kingdom will come about through the unity of the Body of Christ and the oneness with which we love one another and stand together.

  Do you have a dread or a fear- like icy hands gripping your heart- of the days and weeks and months slipping away from you?

Do you find that the truths which God has shown you are becoming so elusive that you cannot really walk in them?

Promises that were very real, hopes and visions that burned in your heart, may become dim as you go along and become distracted.

If the devil cannot defeat you, he will try to distract you and use all of your time against you.

His strategy resembles that used by the basket ball team which is winning the game.

With only a few minutes of time left, they start stalling, passing the ball back and forth.

Their objective is to keep it out of the hands of the opposing team.

They do not need any more points; so they just pass the ball back and forth so that the time will run out and they will win by their margin of points.

Let us not fail to see that the enemy will use the same tactics with us, keeping us so busy and preoccupied doing so many things that we fail to set our hearts to the true course, with a determination to win the race.

Apply yourself and give diligence to God's promises concerning you.

Pray over them.

Cry over them.

  Every member in the Body of Christ has an individual ministry to fulfill, and while they fulfill it collectively, they still attain it by a personal dedication and by having the work of the cross worked in them individually.

The responsibility cannot be shifted to the pastor.

Each one must learn to command his day.

Each one must determine how he is going to fulfill his ministry.


Currently in the news:

●Obama signs into law the US – Israel Strategic Partnership Act. This is a most important and surprisingly positive move by the US. It effectively strengthens the US – Israel alliance and in fact makes it law. Immediately weapons supplied to Israel will increase by $200 million. The new bill will also free up trade in strategic products. This is good news for the US and its position with God. Let’s see how it lasts!
●Obama signs a bill preventing suspected Nazi activists or sympathisers from receiving Social Security benefits!
●What a war or two! A cyber war with North Korea and they threaten to attack the White House. An economic war with Russia and they threaten to attack the US. Well at least there are no bombs flying (yet!) Oh yes, almost forgot: North Korea has 100 nuclear warheads sitting pretty atop inter-continental missiles.
●Hamas is at it again. They've been firing rockets into Israel again and are rebuilding their terror tunnels with EU aid money! Israel is not responding yet.
●The so-called peace process and talks relating to Israel dividing the land and the city of Jerusalem may break down soon over the settlements issue. There are new war drums beating in the background. Either way, we need to look for a peace treaty to be signed. this may come through these current negotiations or in an attempt to end a war not yet on the go. It is the signing of a seven-year peace treaty that kicks off the tribulation period. It will most probably happen on a feast of trumpets.


As the coming of our great Lord and King gets nearer, all of His attributes get nearer and everything He has laid up for us gets closer. As the coming of the antichrist nears, the more he will deceive people including Christians who are not well armed and prepared! He comes in camouflage, as an angel of light, but with him comes hell eternal.
If you don't have spiritual light and insight you won't even see your own need for light. You will carry on into oblivion.
Have you ever wondered why some people just can't see what you see? You can explain spiritual things till you're blue in the face and they just can't see. There's nothing wrong with their intelligence, they're just blind to many things of God.
The main reason many can't see or understand is because they are not born of God in the first place. The new birth is the starting gate.
John 3:3 "I say to you, unless one is born again you cannot see the kingdom of God."
Acts 9:18 "Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales and he received his sight at once and he arose and was baptised." This verse relates to Paul receiving his natural sight after being struck blind, but it most certainly also relates to spiritual sight. Note that as He "saw" he was obedient and went to be baptised right away.
After salvation and adult baptism comes a whole new world of following our Lord as we are led by His spirit.

Self righteousness, self dependence, or pride is the big problem. Trusting in yourself and your own good works rather than the saving grace of the living God is the reason God will hide His Face, His Kingdom and His ways from you. God then comes in and makes sure that you will not see, by blinding your eyes.
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 "Our gospel is hidden to them that are lost in whom the god of this world has blinded the eyes of them who believe not."
Now, in this verse (above) it teaches that Satan "the god of this world" has blinded the eyes of unbelievers. It's not a contradiction. Of course Satan would not want anyone to see into God's glorious kingdom or to see his own workings for that matter.
Spiritual blindness is a monumental problem because you will not see that there is a war on the go. You won't see demonic forces at work in the world. How can you defeat an enemy that you don't know exists or can't see?
God will also not not let unbelievers with hard hearts participate in, or even see His Kingdom as well.
What incredible difficulty for unbelievers to see and understand spiritual truth. Both God and the devil have darkened their hearts and understanding.
Blind teachers and preachers:
Matthew 15:14 "Leave them alone, they are blind leaders of the blind, and if the blind leads the blind they will both fall into the ditch."

A very good way to ensure continued spiritual blindness in your life is to cling to religious traditions.
Mark 7:13 "You make the word of God of no effect through your traditions which you handed down."
Mark 7:7 "Their heart is far from Me and in vain they worship Me teaching as commandmensts the doctrines of men."
Colossians 2:8 "Beware lest anyone cheat you you through empty philosophy and empty deceit, according to the traditions of men, according to the basic principles of this world and not according to Christ."

John 8:12 "I am the light of the world. He that follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

Liberty Or Love

The issue of eating meat that has been sacrificed to idols is no longer a problem in the Church.

Therefore, Paul's exhortation in I Corinthians 8 may seem to be most irrelevant for us today.

However, this chapter contains certain principles about spiritual liberty that are important for us to know and that will be a tremendous blessing to us.

  Now concerning things sacrificed to idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies. 

If anyone supposes that he knows anything, he has not yet known as he ought to know; but if anyone loves God, he is known by Him.

Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that[b]there is no such thing as an idol in the world, and that there is no God but one. 
 For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords, yet for us there is but one God,the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him.

However not all men have this knowledge; but some, being accustomed to the idol until now, eat food as if it were sacrificed to an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled.

 But food will not commend us to God; we are neither the worse if we do not eat, nor the better if we do eat. 

 But take care that this liberty of yours does not somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. 

For if someone sees you, who have knowledge, dining in an idol’s temple, will not his conscience, if he is weak, be strengthened to eat things sacrificed to idols? 

For through your knowledge he who is weak is ruined, the brother for whose sake Christ died. 

And so, by sinning against the brethren and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.

Therefore, if food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, so that I will not cause my brother to stumble.
 I Corinthians 8:1-13.

  Paul presented a different kind of thinking than most people are prepared for.

Even today the issue in Christianity often seems to be legalism versus freedom in the grace of God.

Freedom can be misunderstood by those who have been delivered from legalism.

Legalistic teaching dictates what a believer can do and what he cannot do.

But when the revelation of grace comes to a believer, the prohibitions are suddenly removed and are no longer an issue of sin.

Then he feels free to take certain liberties.

  Paul wrote in Titus 1:15: To the pure, all things are pure, but  to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure, but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.

The impure look upon everything differently than do the pure.

Former legalistic teaching often dictated a certain manner of dress.

The young people of this generation have no idea how many sermons were preached condemning bobbed hair and short dresses, particularly in the twenties.

When a woman was converted to Christ, she was required to "clip the stitch and let down the hem."

Only then was she considered truly converted.

  When the grace of God is preached, styles of dress are not an issue.

In warm weather many Christians wear very little, thinking that in the free grace of God it does not matter.

Actually, many problems can come from dressing in that manner.

In her will to be free, a girl may decide to dress in a provocative manner, thus turning some weak brother to lustful thoughts and becoming the occasion of a great deal of condemnation within him.

Then she cannot justify herself by saying," Well, that's his problem.

My liberty is one thing, and it is up to him to look out for himself."

They recognized that by sinning against your brother and wounding his conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.

  Anyone who becomes a part of the restoration of the New Testament Church, and desires to walk with God as a son of God, must realize that his personal liberty is not to be the issue.

It is true that Romans 8:21 speaks of the glorious liberty of the sons of God, but those who walk in that liberty must understand that they are bound by a law of love from which there will never be any liberation.

After the Lord has liberated us from all other legalism, then the law of love binds us, and we recognize that the Christ in our brother must not be offended.

  In I Corinthians 8 Paul was talking about one or more individuals who perhaps had some very serious problems.

Behind the heathen temple where animals were sacrificed to an idol, there was a little concession.

Here people could buy meat for a low price, or eat a meal that had been prepared by the temple attendants.

They cooked the meat from the sacrifices, adding a few spices.

Sometimes the Christians who did not have much money came here to get a good meal or to buy some meat.

These Christians looked upon themselves as free and not under the law.

But when a brother came along who had formerly worshiped in that idol's temple, and he saw the Christians eating the meat of the sacrifices, it was a big occasion of stumbling for him.

God had delivered him from the power of the demons that were associated with that idol; and when he saw the freedom of these Christians, he stumbled.

For that reason Paul wrote, " If food causes my brother to stumble, I will never eat meat again, that I might not cause my brother to stumble."

  On the other hand, there is also a danger of insisting on extreme conformity, in which you do certain things because everyone else expects it of you.

Some people will try to make you measure up to their standards.

At times you must absolutely go against their demands, because they are trying to lay down rules that are a stumbling block to the whole issue of liberty in Christ.

  Many Christians will be offended because God's present moving in the earth is non-denominational.

In reality, denominationalism is not even scriptural; it is antiscriptural.

There are many areas that are open issues on which Christians must take their stand in the Lord.

When you come into a walk with God, you are delivered from Babylonian denominations.

So if someone is offended when you criticize Babylon, you can not allow that to become an issue.

  In the matters of food and dress and similar issues, you should have freedom and liberty.

Yet you should not demand conformity, but rather have a compassion for your weak brother, so that you do not cause him to stumble in his weakness.

Many illustrations could be given of areas where liberty can be taken too far.

One man may insist on his freedom to drink wine.

His brother, who has been delivered by God from alcoholism, may associate drinking with devil power.

Be careful with your liberty.

Do not offend your brother for whom Christ died.

Realize that the law of love supersedes your liberty.

  If you come from a background of legalism, you may need to assert yourself to break through the chains that have been lad upon you.

But realize, also, that after you have broken through, you no longer have a point to prove.

Therefore, back off and be considerate.

Have enough love in your spirit to appreciate the freedom you have in the grace of God, but realize that with this freedom one rule governs your heart- and that is love.

Do not make an issue of your liberty when that liberty is definitely going to wound Christ.

  Christ is identifying Himself thoroughly and completely with each one in the Body of Christ.

Therefore if you offend a brother, you sin against Christ because Christ is in him.

Regardless of how foolish he may be, Christ is in that brother to such an extent that everything you do to him as a human being you are doing to Christ.

  Paul wrote in I Corinthians 6:5:

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?

Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot?

May it never be!

Christ today is not one individual.

As the body is not one member, but many members, so also is Christ ( I Corinthians 12:12 ).

He shed His blood to redeem you from your sins, in order that as He comes forth in your life, you can be thoroughly and completely in Him, a living part of Himself.

Jesus did not shed his blood to save you as an individual.

He came to save you from your individuality.

He shed His precious blood to release you from your sins as an individual, to release you from your individuality, and to bring you into absolute oneness with Himself.

The first thing He had to do was to pay the price and get rid of all the debt that was against you, and then to swallow you up in Himself.

Every day that you live, you become a little bit less of a human being, and a little more of Christ than you were the day before.

  When a brother first accepts Jesus Christ, he may have many strange ideas, but you still must see the Christ coming forth in him.

No matter how confused he is mentally, God is getting his heart together, and down in his heart Christ lives.

Regardless of how inadequate, immature, and undeveloped that person is, he is a member of Christ; and what you do to him, you are doing to Christ.

  That man must also be convinced that what He does to himself, he is doing to christ.

During a time of discouragement, he may go out and get drunk.

This means the he got Christ drunk.

Perhaps you object to that kind of thinking.

Do you prefer Paul's way of expressing it?

He said, " If you have sexual intercourse with a harlot, you are bringing Christ into an adulterous, fornicating situation."

What you do to the body, the temple of the Holy Spirit where Christ dwells, you are doing to Christ.

  There will have to be a new respect and reverence for the Christ who dwells within us.

We shall come to know one another not after the flesh, bt as fellow members of Christ.

God's end - time move is more than restoration of the New Testament Church in a many membered body.

Only to see individuals move in a ministry was never God's plan, but rather to see the Body of Christ come together, to see the Son of God manifested in many sons.

It is not the manifestation of you as a son, but the manifestation of Christ, the pattern Son, in you.

Every member in the Body will conform to Him.

Every member will take on the same life and the same being, the same nature and the same oneness.

  Ask God to give you a Kingdom conscience so great, that although you would give your life for the liberty that is yours in Christ, you would also relinquish, as Paul did, great segments of your liberty so that you never offend Christ in a brother.

To the Jews Paul was like a Jew; to the slaves he was like a slave; to the free he was like a free man; to the Gentiles he could talk like a Gentile.

What was his key?

He said, " I have become all things to all men" ( I Corinthians 9:19-22 ).

He was not saying, "I am a man of a thousand faces."

Rather, he was saying, "I conform myself as a man who shall be restrained.

The Christ within me can relate to the Christ in my brother, even though that brother is warped in his concepts, and his background leads him in another direction completely."

  When your relationship with your brother is right, then your liberty is not threatened.

Do not make an issue out of the liberties you have which your brother does not have.

Realize that Christ died for him.

Come to the place where you love Christ so much that yo will not be an offense to your brother.

The issue is never liberty; the issue is love.

There Was Great Joy!

Unusual Air Bus Formation

Big Thursday


Violin Joy

I Will Awaken The Dawn

God wants to give us an immunity for the days ahead, and He wants us to understand the nature of that immunity.

It is not an immunity from the battle or from assault, but from the vulnerable, but He does not prevent the attack against us.

He only sees to it that we are not wounded or cast down.

We are to be immune from everything that Satan brings us in this hour.

  More than ever before, Romans 8:28 is to apply in the days ahead of us.

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

We are called according to the purposes of God for this generation.

We are a unique instrument in the hands of the Lord to bring forth His Kingdom in the earth.

We are to speak as the oracles of God.

In what generation has the believer been called upon to rise to such a high spiritual level as God is calling us to fulfill?

Because of this, we must understand that we are not going to be without satanic assault.

But I believe that we will be in a position that I John 5:18 talks about when it says, "The wicked one touches him not."

This I believe will be our portion.

It is necessary that we go through things; but it must also be true that only good comes out of it, that there is not the harassment, that we are not vulnerable, that we are not placed in Jeopardy or in any real danger.

  When we read in Luke 10, we see a prelude of this in the immunity that was visited upon the seventy who went forth to preach in the days of Christs ministry.

They were told that nothing could harm them.

They were told that they would be released even from economic necessity.

They were not to take along any extra paraphernalia, clothes, or money.

What a stark contrast to some of today's "Ministries." )

They were to trust God with all their heart.

And as they went forth, they walked in authority over all the power of the enemy; nothing hurt them.

This was very significant.

Of course it was based upon the fact that they were going to do the will of God.

Our immunity stands until moments of rebellion or disobedience.

Then we become vulnerable.

Once we give in to Satan, we throw down the walls of protection to some degree, and the enemy is quick to take advantage of it.

  At this time the world is facing a perilous hour which is described in James 5:1-8.

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you.

  Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire.

 It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! 

 Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth.

 You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. 

This speaks of a situation that we see today, where people are making millions of dollars through war.

Politicians realize that many jobs are available and money will be pumped into the economy by a war.

There have been wars without cause, started deliberately, probably more for economic reasons than any other.

  You have condemned and put to death the righteous man; he does not resist you. 

Be patient, therefore, brethren, until the coming of the Lord.

Behold, the farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains.

You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand.

Just as soon as the Lord gets what He is after with us, then the coming of the Lord and of the Kingdom will proceed at a rapid rate.

It is the preparation, the gathering of the precious fruit of the earth, that is holding up the whole process.

  We know that we are going through a very difficult time.

Two things are happening: the first is that the world is being prepared for many judgments, and these coming judgments have already cast their shadows before them and are already upon the earth.

The earth is dark with the clouds of coming judgments.

These clouds are freighted with all the plagues and disasters that are outlined in the book of Revelation, and more besides.

The earth is going to see many things happen to it.

The Lord describes it as a time of trouble such as there has not been since the world began ( Matthew 24 ).

With these judgments pending, we might question what future there is for the believer.

The Lord is urging His people, trying to do a quick work within their hearts to bring them fort into what He wants.

He is waiting for the precious fruit of the earth.

He has long patience for it.

He is waiting until we reach in to all of the Kingdom provisions that God is looking for us to walk in.

He is looking for a people.

This is the second thing that God is doing.

And we have been called to be that people.

  Do not be afraid; but also, do not bury your head in the sand.

Be open in your heart for God to lead His people right through the time of judgment.

Men's hearts will be failing them for fear as they look after those things which shall come to pass upon the earth because the powers of the heavens shall be shaken ( Luke 21:26-28 ).

Mark 13:25 
the stars of heaven will fall, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.

While the above scripture is about another event, if the earth suddenly stops rotating as it was designed to do, the stars at night will appear to be falling to the horizon. All of the HARRP type experiments going on around the globe are currently having an effect on the earth's natural mechanics...

What are you to do?

You are to lift your head, for your redemption draweth nigh.

This is not a time to be fearful.

It is a time to rejoice.

It is necessary that you go through this period of travail as clearly described in I Thessalonians 5:3.

It shall come upon all of the earth as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

Although travail may be the most intense pain that a human endures, it is not the pain of disaster.

No matter how intense it is, travail is not disastrous.

It comes because there is no other way to see life removed from one particular realm into another.

  A little baby, living within the womb of its mother, completely submerged in the fluid in which it is sustained, is fed, nourished, and grows in a fantastic way which is entirely different from the way it will live later.

When that little life is to be projected into another realm, then the pains begin.

No longer will it be sustained in the fluid.

Now that child will begin to breathe.

It has already had a strong heartbeat for several months, but now it will actually begin to live and survive apart from the mother.

The cord is to be severed, and that child is to live in another realm.

  God is saying that something else is going to happen in this world.

He is bringing His sons to birth.

They are going to be brought to maturity.

They are going to be thrust into another realm.

Satan, the old dragon, is right at the womb, ready to devour the man child as soon as it is born.

Satan desires to hold us back because the people of God are coming to birth.

This new age that is being born is bringing to a conclusion another way of life.

The establishment, as we have known it, must come down.

It must be brought to an end.

Everything at the present time in the economy, in government, in laws and their enforcement, in the attitude of people, has to change completely.

The kingdoms of this world are to become the Kingdom of our Lord ad of His Christ.

He shall reign.

He shall be Lord of lords.

He shall be the King of kings.

These lords and kings must be brought into their place.

  That is why you are being tested on your faithfulness.

God is not concerned much about the little things you are being faithful in now; He is concerned about the preparation of your heart to be a king and a lord under the King of kings and Lord of lords.

He is not so much concerned about your immunity from an occasional devil attack; He is concerned about bringing you forth into the immunity that belongs to sons so that you can lead your family in a great exodus out of a period of relative slavery, bondage, and harassment into the freedom of God's dear sons.

To see this take place is not easy.

It is true that in this walk with God you have been subjected to some very intense dealings.

Why is God putting you through it?

It is not just to see what your tolerance level is or to see how much you can endure, but it is to take you way beyond that and bring you into a new age, to help you to be the sons of the Kingdom who shall live in triumph.

  Do not complain about being harassed, saying that you cannot endure it.

You will have to.

You will have to learn.

You will have to develop immunity to that harassment.

You will have to rise to a new level and determine that you are going to do the will of God.

There is no other way for you to go.

You are going to be the expression of His will in this generation.

  We are studying about the immunity because we do not want to become the victims.

We want to be the instrument of change.

Some people will become victims because they are old wine skins.

I believe that the bulk of the Christian churches and movements are going to be plowed under because they are already old wine skins.

If they cannot adjust themselves with a flexibility to receive new truth and light as God is bringing it forth now, they will not be able to adapt themselves to the difficulties of the day ahead.

Many a person today realizes that he is completely incapable of change.

I often meet fundamental Christians who are more than a generation behind the times.

They are living in another world, a kind of dream world.

They put on blinders, figuring that if they do not look at it, this whole scene is going to disappear and go away.

It will not go away!

Their refusal to adapt themselves to a new age is indicative of the fact that they will also not be able to adapt themselves to the things that are just ahead.

If they cannot run with the footmen, how will they contend with the horsemen ( Jeremiah 12:5 ) ?

  That is why it is very difficult to introduce this walk in the Spirit to some good established Church.

It is like asking a group of Pharisees to start a New Testament Church.

The whole idea is incomprehensible to them.

They are not able to adapt themselves.

They cannot think that way.

They cannot relate to it and therefore do not want it.

  As new wine skins, many have learned the flexibility.

They have learned to hunger after the truth and to walk in it.

They are learning to adjust to all the changes that are taking place round about them.

They feel as if they have been stretched out of shape, but it is only helping them to be new wine skins, capable of receiving the wine within them a whole new day.

The Kingdom of God is coming forth within a remnant first.

It is not coming by observation.

It is coming within a people and it is preparing them ( Luke 17:20,21 ).

The kingdom of God is flexible and expandable, and it is going to grow until it fills the whole earth.

Like a stone cut out of the mountain without hands, it is going to smite the nations and grind them to powder.

Then it will expand until it fills the whole earth.

The prophecy of Daniel indicates it.

  God is preparing you to walk victoriously with every need supplied.

When this world can no longer touch you, you will be surprised how immune you are to its assaults and its necessities.

It is a good time to be eager to serve Him with all your heart.

If things have been terrible for you lately, that is a good indication that we need not worry about you; you are a part of the walk with God.

Anyone who is walking with God now is walking through days of preparation for the future.

The immunity is coming by a process similar to a vaccination or immunization.

You are going through a little of the tribulation period now, but just enough that you can develop an immunity.

When the rest of the world is coming down with it, you will be loosed from it.

  When the United States was being settled and the white settlers wanted to kill the Indians, they would give them blankets that had been used by white children with measles.

When the white people had the measles, it was not deadly.

But they knew the Indians had not been exposed to measles, and consequently, they had no resistance built up against the disease.

Therefore when the Indians became infected with the measles, whole villages were destroyed.

  You have been exposed to many things, and in the days that are coming, you will walk right through those situations without them bothering you.

But the world does not have the immunity, and their hearts are actually going to fail them from fear.

There will be days when the wicked will cry for the rocks and the mountains to fall on them.

It is a great day to walk with God and to enjoy His great love.

Do not be concerned about how you will be able to stand.

You can endure much more than you think you can.

God will bring you to the end of your limitations and you will stretch a little more, again and again.

  When you came into a walk with God, you could probably hold a half-pint of blessing.

Then the old wineskin stretched and stretched until now you are able to hold a barrelful.

The Lord is expanding your capacity for Him.

He is expanding your faith.

He is developing an immunity within you so that you can walk with Him.

If you want to be discouraged about that, you are deceived as to what is really important.

God is preparing you for His best.

It may seem as if He has given you nothing, but if God is preparing you for His best, you accept the fact and walk with Him in the days ahead.

Perhaps you want to be a prophet, but all that you see happening is that you are getting stomped on.

This is a good indication that you are being prepared for a prophet's ministry.

  Psalm 57 : Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in Thee; and in the shadow of Thy wings I will take refuge, until destruction passes by.

I will cry to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for me.

He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who tramples upon me.

God will send forth His loving kindness and His truth.

My soul is among lions; I must lie among those who breathe forth fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

  Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let Thy glory be above the earth.

They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down; they dug a pit before me; they themselves have fallen into the midst of it.

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing praises!

Awake, my glory; awake, harp and lyre, I will awaken the dawn!

  If I were to select a motto to use on letterheads or business cards, it would be a phrase from this psalm: 

"I will awaken the dawn."

Someone must get out there like Orpheus in Greek mythology, who arose and played his lyre until the sun came up.

We can begin to prophesy and sing and see the dawning of a new day.

God wants us to be like a spiritual Orpheus and awaken the dawn.

When all of the other events are taking place, we are believing for the new day to come forth.

  I will give thanks to Thee, O Lord, among the people; I will sing praises to Thee among the nations.

For Thy loving kindness is great to the heavens, and Thy truth to the clouds.

be exalted above the heavens, O God; let Thy glory be above the earth.

  In spite of the heaviness of the day and the hour, be encouraged.

Believe that we are getting dominion over the principalities and powers.

Be ready for another battle and another step.

If your hands are hanging down and your knees are feeble, this is a good time to take your strength from the Lord and press on.

Satan tries to hinder and slow down the things that God has set before us.

Satan tries to put the believer in a position which he is utterly crushing him, but by this word a man can look to the Lord and take new courage.

  One of these days we will learn to trust Him.

One of these days we will learn to lie down and rest because there is One who is watching.

He never slumbers nor sleeps.

We can cast our cares upon Him and let Him worry about them.

One of these days we will learn to walk with the Lord.

He is trying to teach us not to be moved by circumstances or events, not to carry a bitterness in our spirits.

The deeper limits of faith are only attained by pressures that are almost unendurable.

  Many of us have been almost bent out of shape in the dealings of the Lord.

He wants us to submit to what He is putting us through.

He wants us to voice the faith, that in the dealing His purpose will be done.

This does not mean that we must submit in any way to the situation; we submit to His putting us through it.

Daniel did not submit to the lions; he submitted to God putting him with the lions.

The three Hebrew children did not submit to the fire; they submitted to God putting them through the fire.

We do not have to submit to Satan or what he is bringing against us, but we must submit to God who is allowing it in order that greater immunities can come forth.

If He turns loose a devil on us that is bigger than we have ever handled, we do not submit to the devil, but we submit to the fact that God wants us to overcome the devil.

We go into the battle with faith, and we resist that devil with everything that is within us.

Because of such resistance, we will learn to be greater men of faith.

We must submit to the fact that God is putting you through it, but we do not submit to Satan or to the world.

We do not become passive in this attitude of being an over-comer.
