BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT

BLESSED ARE THE POOR IN SPIRIT

By Dr. Kiwi S. Kalloo

Matthew 5:3

3Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed: from the Hebrew H1288 Barak Beyt-Resh-Daleth (To be favored or to favor oneself) (the ability to chose) to chose to be favored.

Beyt-House

  • All of creation is a house in relationship to God
  • God’s desire to make for Himself a dwelling place in lower reality.
  • The #2 the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the #2 speaks of a testimony or a rebellion. How can two walk together unless they both agree.
  • Man’s ability to chose between good and evil, choosing to make his body the house of God.
  • The power to bless in fullness, the fullness of God being revealed in his creation.
  • This house is God’s house
  • The Torah teaches “They shall build me a Temple and I will dwell in them”

Resh-Head or Beginning

  • The two letters that fill the letter reish are yud and shin, spelling yeish, which means “something,”
  • we are taught that though the lower “something,” the “created something,” appears to be totally separate from the consciousness of its Creator and the creative force which continuously brings it into existence,
  • As that lower something, God sees value in each of us.
  • The insight of Divine wisdom is the “nothing” between the two states of “something,” whose ultimate purpose is to serve to draw the consciousness of the “True Something” into the experience of the lower “something.”
  • The separation of something and nothing is the first day of our true beginning.
  • Resh is declared by the #200 which declares that
    • Creation begins from the “middle point” of God’s Infinite Light.
  • The evolving of the “Kingdom of the Infinite.”
  • The King and His people.

Daleth-Door

  • Speaks of the door that stands in the opening of the house
  • In regard to an arrogant person God says: “I and he cannot dwell together.” The door to God’s house allows for the humble of spirit to enter.
  • Pride is the result of an exalted ego, man in his rebellious stage, Adam’s inheritance.
  • The door is not intended for us to enter in but for God to come into his house who are we.
  • Lose the pride and God will come in
  • Represented by the #4 which speaks of the elements of the earth, all that is carnal or carnal man who needs to decrease so God can increase or come in.

POOR IN SPIRIT

Root Word ptōchos  from the Greek G4434 which means to crowch down which is the Greek word Akin which comes from

G4422 and the alternate of G4098

1) reduced to beggary, begging, asking alms (I need you Lord)

2) destitute of wealth, influence, position, honour ( I am nothing on my own)

a) lowly, afflicted, destitute of the Christian virtues and eternal riches ( my riches is like filthy rags )

b) helpless, powerless to accomplish an end ( I am nothing without you )

c) poor, needy ( I have room in my inn for you )

3) lacking in anything ( I need you to come and fill my lack of Godliness )

a) Destitute for truth ( that truth is God )

 

LUCIFER, WHO IS HE

LUCIFER, WHO IS HE

We have heard from our elders and those who were before us that “LUCIFER” is the devil and at that name we inflict fear. Lucifer has been taught to be a bad word. To call someone “Lucifer” is a reflection of having an evil nature.

The word “Lucifer” comes from 2 Latin words:

Lux (=light) + ferous (=to bear or carry). Thus the name “Lucifer” means: Light-bearer or Light-bringer.

In the English version of the Bible the name “Lucifer” appears only one time–in Isaiah 14:12. This reads:

1. “How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning…”

2. “Lucifer” is not an English word, but a Latin word.

2 Peter 1:19 reads : “…until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.

2 Peter 1:19 KJV

19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

2 Peter 1:19 Amplified

19 And we have the prophetic word [made] firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dismal (squalid and dark) place, until the day breaks through [the gloom] and the Morning Star rises ([a]comes into being) in your hearts.

The two words “day star” are a translation of the one Greek word “phosphoros.” This comes from the two Greek words:

Phos (=light) + phero (=to bear or carry). Thus the Greek word “phosphoros” means Light-bearer or Light-bringer.

Anyone who knows both, Greek and Latin, can verify that the Greek word “Phosphoros” and the Latin word “Lucifer” are absolutely, one hundred percent identical in meaning. “Lucifer” is the perfect translation into Latin of the Greek word “Phosphoros.”

This 19th verse without a doubt speaks of Jesus for we know that he is indeed the day star, the light bringer. He said “I am the light of the world”.

Isaiah 14:12 is the only verse in the Bible that uses the word “Lucifer” in the Hebrew. The people who translated the Bible for King James were the ones who determined that this word should be “Lucifer.” The Hebrew has no such meaning at all. In fact the word does not even sound like the word Lucifer.

Footnotes:

  1. Isaiah 14:12 The Hebrew for this expression—“light-bringer” or “shining one”—is translated “Lucifer” in The Latin Vulgate, and is thus translated in the King James Version.
  2. Luke 10:18 is an explanation of Isa. 14:12, which many authorities believe is not true. “Lucifer,” the light-bringer, is the Latin equivalent of the Greek word “Phosphoros,” which is used as a title of Christ in
  3. II Pet. 1:19 and corresponds to the name “radiant and brilliant Morning Star” in
  4. Rev. 22:16, a name Jesus called Himself. This passage here in
  5. Isa. 14:13 clearly applies to the king of Babylon.

King:

a male sovereign or monarch; a man who holds by life tenure, and usually by hereditary right, the chief authority over a country and people.

Babylon:

Comes from the Hebrew word H1101 Babel PEY-LAMED-LAMED

Babel or Babylon = “confusion (by mixing)”

Which comes from the Hebrew word “teh’·vel”  PEY-TAV-LAMED

Confusion: the act of confusing. the state of being confused. disorder; upheaval; tumult; chaos: lack of clearness or distinctness:

When we invite confusion in, we lose our distinctness, we lose our identity, we try to become who we are not. See, we came from our Father God and if we really want to become all that we were designed to be, we will need to be identified with our Father. Our maker and creator. The word of God declares that we have all gone our own way, we have all become right in our own eyes.

Psalm 16:11

11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

2 Timothy 3:1-5

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Titus 3:3

For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

Hebrew 11:24-25

24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;

25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

 

1) Babel or Babylon, the ancient site and/or capital of Babylonia (modern Hillah) situated on the Euphrates

Here is the facts; Adam was created by God and made King of the creation that God had made and gave him authority to rule and reign in the garden. Adam became King of the earth, not just King of the garden.

Before the fall of Adam he had all authority and dominion over all of the earth and its creatures.

After the fall of Adam he lost his authority and dominion and became susceptible to the very thing that he once ruled. See, when he ate, or allowed sin into his life, he became confused because his knowledge became mixed and perverted. When we invite and allow the spirit of confusion into our lives our minds go into battle. Right against wrong, sin against righteousness, truth against lies. We become confused, disdained and troubled. We develop what is called an inability to think straight, unable to discern right from wrong.

See, “BABEL” is not a name but a word that was used to describe a condition but in translation the true meaning of expression got lost. This King (Adam) who once ruled the earth with all authority and dominion became confused and began to speak a perverted word. To say this another way, he began to speak “EVIL”.

A corrupt language came forth out of his mouth. He started out as a created good son of God that became a corrupted sinful son of God. He started out as King of the garden but ended up becoming the king of corruption and confusion.

The Hebrew word “BABEL” comes from the root word H1101 balal

Which means:

anoint, confound, fade, mingle, mix self, give provender, temper

A primitive root; to overflow (specifically with oil.); by implication, to mix; also (denominatively from bliyl) to fodder — anoint, confound, X fade, mingle, mix (self), give provender, temper.

 

Tells of an anointing as with oil, a mixed oil, a contaminated oil that is poured out upon the head and begins to corrupt the mind that contaminates the entire body.

1) to mix, mingle, confuse, confound

1) to mingle, confuse

b) (Hithpoel) to mix oneself (among others)

c) (Hiphil) to fade away

So this King of the Garden as he began to mix and mingle with the evil one, his authority and dominion began to fade away and brought confusion to his understanding and knowledge.

BEIT-LAMED-LAMED

 

BEIT: God’s dwelling place below

LAMED: Aspirations of the heart of man

LAMED: the root of the letter “YUD” which speaks of the infinite point

The part of the letter BEIT carries the root of the letter “REISH” which speaks of (process and the art of clarification)

So we see that God intended for man to become his dwelling place and temple on the earth. So he created man with aspirations within his own heart that will bring him through a defining process where he would recognize God and arrive and become one with the infinite God. But Adam lost his ability to see clearly.

Luke 10:18 Amplified

18 And He said to them, I saw Satan falling like a lightning [flash] from heaven.

Satan: From the Hebrew “sä·tän’” (H7853)

1) adversary, one who withstands

a) adversary (in general – personal or national)

2) superhuman adversary

From the Greek (G4566)  “sä-tä-nä’s” from Aramaic origin, meaning is the same as the Hebrew.

1 john 3:8

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

He who breaches the law and constitution of God is guilty of sin which is of the Devil. For the Devil has been a transgressor from the beginning of his existence. And because of his influence upon man and his ability to breach the law and constitution of God, the Son of God has been made manifested, that he would through grace destroy the tasks that was set forth by the Devil to cause men to live contrary to the constitution of God.

Sin: transgression of divine law and transgression is a breach of the law. And the law is any written or positive rule or collection of rules prescribed under the authority of the state or nation, as by the people in its constitution.

any act regarded as such a transgression, especially a willful or deliberate violation of some religious or moral principle.

 

Devil: The spiritual commander of evil.

Comes from the Greek G1228 dē-ä’-bo-los

Which means: 1) prone to slander, slanderous, accusing falsely, a) a calumniator, false accuser, slanderer,

John 10:10

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Jesus declaring that the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. That thief referenced here is the Devil, the slanderer, the accuser of the brethren. See, he has never been holy, pure and true, there has never been any light in him, he has been a Devil from his inception, from the beginning of his existence.

Eph 3:8-10

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;

And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

Ephesians declared that God the Father created “ALL” things by his son Jesus Christ. The word “ALL” meaning; with the exception of none. All means all, no exclusions.

It was also intended for the church to recognize and come to the understanding of the principalities and powers that exist in the heavenly places.

John 1:1-3

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

See, in the beginning “GOD”

All things began with God and from God. All things was made by him, through him, for him and without him was not anything made that was made.

Eph 6:11-12

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

That principalities and powers is the Devil and his ambassadors of darkness who has been commissioned to lure men and women to live contrary to the constitution of our Holy God. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the Devil and his rulers of darkness and against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Collossions 1:13

12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:

13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

According to Collossians we have been delivered from the power of darkness.

Deliver: to give into another’s possession or keeping;

Which comes from the Greek G4506 rhü’-o-mī  Which means; to be taken out or rescued from

Translated: comes from the Greek word G3179 me-thē’-stā-mē

Which means: to transpose, transfer, remove from one place to another, a) of change of situation or place

So we have been removed from the possession of the Devil and placed into the care of Jesus from one realm into another, from one place into another.

For by him was all things created, and by him it refers to God almighty. All things include all things. All things include you, me, the sun, the moon, the stars, the Devil, Adam and everything else. Things in heaven, things on earth, invisible and visible, thrones, dominions, principalities, powers. All things was created by him. All things exist through him. The principalities is the Devil.

Isa 45:5-8

I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:

That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.

I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.

I form the light, I create darkness, I make peace and create “EVIL”.

I the Lord do all these things, I the Lord have created it.

Form: comes from the Hebrew word H3335 yatsar

Which means: to create by a pre-ordained design

Create: comes from the Hebrew H1254 bara’

Which means; to make something of new conditions and circumstances.

Isa 54:16

16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

Jesus said “the thief, the waster comes but to steal kill and destroy”

Until Adam was tried and tested and overcome, and put his foot on the enemy, he could not fully be like God. He had to get rid of the clay.

See, Adam was made in the image and likeness of God but he was not one with God.

John 17:11

11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.

How bold?

Jesus said “that we who were delivered from darkness and placed into his care will become one with him who is one with the Father.

See, Adam was not one with the Father, but here we are on our way there. Who have gained access to the throne and the heart of the Father through our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus gave us access by grace. Jesus showed the way to getting rid of the clay. For he said “ to die is to live” lay down your life and take it back up.

Our spirits have already caught up and is permanently joined as one with God, our soul is in the process of being joined and our bodies will be joined at our full transformation.

John 10:30

30 I and my Father are one.

John 17:22

22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

Profound: The glory which was given to Jesus by the Father has been given to us that has made us and is making us one with him who is one and the same.

2 Corinthian 11:15

15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

For certain, it should not be strange to you if the high ranking diplomatic representatives of Satan also masquerade themselves as diplomatic representatives and executive commanders of the grace and doctrines of our Lord Jesus Christ; who will be terminated at the finish line because of their evil deeds.

Minister: From the Greek word G1249 dē-ä’-ko-nos

Which means:

1) one who executes the commands of another, esp. of a master, a servant, attendant, minister

a) the servant of a king

b) one who carries out the will of another

c) a diplomatic representative accredited by one government to another and ranking next below    an ambassador.

Righteousness: which comes from the greek word G1343 dē-kī-o-sü’-nā

Which means:

1) in a broad sense: state of him who is as he ought to be, righteousness, the condition acceptable to God

a) the doctrine concerning the way in which man may attain a state approved of God

b) integrity, virtue, purity of life, rightness, correctness of thinking feeling, and acting

2) in a narrower sense, justice or the virtue which gives each his due

End: to bring to an end or conclusion, to bring to a finish.

From the greek G5056 te’-los

Which means:

a) termination, the limit at which a thing ceases to be (always of the end of some act or state, but not of the end of a period of time)

b) the end

1) the last in any succession or series

2) eternal

c) that by which a thing is finished, its close, issue

d) the end to which all things relate, the aim, purpose

Works: exertion or effort directed to produce or accomplish something; labor; toil.

From the greek G2041 e’r-gon

Which means:

1) business, employment, that which any one is occupied

a) that which one undertakes to do, enterprise, undertaking

2) any product whatever, any thing accomplished by hand, art, industry, or mind

3) an act, deed, thing done: the idea of working is emphasized in opp. to that which is less than work

Just as we are Ministers of Righteousness, the devil also have ministers who adorn themselves with masks and dresses of disguise to deceive the saints of God. Because of how we are built as human beings, we are always vulnerable to the system and culture of human beings. We are creative in nature and character because we were made in the image and likeness of our creative Father God. And because we are sons, it is in out DNA to submit to a Father.

Father: creator, founder, or author of; originator.

Comes from the Hebrew H1 ab

Which describes the originator or beginning, the creator or ancestor, the start or true generator or life.

See, because we were created by a Father we always seek to submit to a Father, one who is authoritative and influential. When Adam sinned he gave up his authority and dominion over the flesh, he broke covenant and relationship with his Father who is the Father of all life and adopted a replacement, a bogus father, an intimidator, a deceiver even, one who would make him promises that he could not keep, one who would take him to the grave.

Gen 1:1-5

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

In the beginning “God”. From the very start there was only God.  From the beginning of creation there was only God.

Jer 28:1

28 And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me in the house of the Lord, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying,

Here is the same line again “in the beginning” “from the start”

See, when we look at John 1:1 we understand that in the beginning was the Word and the word was with God and the word was God.

jn 8:42-44

42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Jesus made a very bold statement speaking to the Jews saying “I came from God and I did not come on my own but he sent me”.  He also went on to say that the devil was a murderer from his beginning, from his very start, from the start of his existence. He never lived in the truth, because there was no truth in him, when he speak a lie it is because it came from within him for he is full of lies for he is the Father of lies. There was never any good in him for he has always been a devil, a deceiver.

Satan has been a murderer from his beginning, we have been falsely taught and misled by the sleight and cunning craftiness of men. The Church has been falsely taught and misled into believing a lie. What is that lie? The lie is “Satan was not a liar from the beginning of his existence”.

2 cor 11:13-15

13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

False: tending to deceive or mislead; deceptive: a false impression.

Apostles: (one who claims to be an ambassador of Christ) (from the greek G5570 psyüd-ä-po’-sto-los)

Deceitful: intended to deceive;  misleading; fraudulent: a deceitful action.

Transform: (to change the figure of or to transform) (from the greek G3345 me-tä-skhā-mä-tē’-zō)

  • to change in form, appearance, or structure; metamorphose.

 

  • to change in condition, nature, or character; convert.

 

  • to change into another substance; transmute.

 

  • To change the form or nature of.

 

  • FORM: external appearance of a clearly defined area, as distinguished from color or material; configuration, personality, character, traits, representation and nature.

 

For there are deceivers who will come with false intensions masquerading themselves before you as ambassadors of Christ but they are really not. Fraudulent workers having an agenda to deceive, hiding the true nature of who they really are, put on masks of deception that causes others to see them not for who they really are. They through false pretenses appear to be as true ambassadors of Christ the messiah.

 

Our brother Paul did not fail to forewarn us about the carnival of masqueraders that would come before us with the intension to deceive us and they will look and sound like the real thing. Nevertheless, no man can come unto God unless the spirit of God draws him. They hide their true nature and character while they lie in wait to steal kill and destroy all that is good.

 

2 Timothy 3:1-5

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

The word of God declares that they will put on an apparel that looks like God but it is only a resemblance of the real thing. It is very possible for us to be deceived by this form of godliness. This type of godliness gives us good stature and prestige within our community and church, it gains us friends and gets us accepted into the social surroundings which is accepted by all. When we adhere to the look alike instead of the real thing we deny the power of God and accept defeat into our lives. This is the trickery of the enemy, to get us to a place of acceptance, a place that does not require effort and change, a place of mediocrity and status quo.

2 Corinthian 11:14

14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

And because the enemy has disguised himself to deceive you, do not be carried away in your thoughts so as to join in with amazement and admiration of his cunning and crafty ways. For the devil has transformed himself, he has masked himself into the appearance of a messenger of God, declaring that his intensions are all good and definite. Because he projects to be what he is not, many of us run to him with good intensions but wrong convictions.

Conviction

A few years ago I was residing in Queens New York and running the race of heavy construction within the New York area. I got a bit tired of the stress and decided that it was time for me to change my location of residence so I packed up my family and we moved to South Florida. I got to South Florida and bought myself a small business and got a descent job as an executive project manager which paid very good at the time. About two months into all of it and I realized that my convictions to move to Florida had led me wrong so I packed up my family and moved back to New York where I currently live.

Saints of God, we need to be prayerful and allow God to lead us because we can sometimes make the wrong decisions in life because of our convictions. It is possible to sincere and wrong at the same time. We have an adversary who has no limit, he will stop at nothing to take us out and if we continue to act childish and arrogant we will continue to fail because of ignorance.

Being at a place where you can see a ray of light does not mean that you have access to that light, the moon does not give out light but it is a reflection of the light of the sun. In our quest to find that true light we must go directly to the source which is the sun (Son). If we set course to the moon we will be very disappointed because we would find out that the moon is not the source of that true light. So the devil has disguised (transformed) himself as the moon pretending to be the sun. Disguised himself as an ambassador of God gathering men and women to the cause that is not according to the divine order.

See, in the Ark of God there is safety, in another ark there is danger. The true Ark is Jesus and outside of Jesus, even the look alike will not be able to take us into eternal rest. Only the Ark of Jesus is able to sail into the heart of our Father God.

Establishing People in the Heart of God in Worship, the Principles of the Kingdom in Sonship and Maturity.

 

By Dr. Kiwi S. Kalloo

 

 

  1. And when the (devil) dragon saw that he (no longer had access to the heavely realm) was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the (church) woman which brought forth the (overcomers) man child.

 

And when Satan saw and came to the realization that he has lost the war and was cast out of heaven unto the earth or the flesh, he began to press with an unmerciful vengeance against the church that did not overcome, and was remained, and did flee into the wilderness, for it was this same church that did bring forth the man child that was to feed the woman for 3-1/2 years.

  1. And to the (church) woman were given (became matured and ready to enter into) two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into (a prepared realm of people) her place, where (the church) she is nourished for (three and a half years) a time, and times, and half a time, from the (influence and interference) face of the serpent.

 

And this woman church was two great wings of an eagle. That she might fly into the wilderness into her place to be nourished for 3-1/2 years away from the wrath of the devil. See, when Israel escaped from Egypt into the wilderness, there was severe judgment upon Egypt while Israel was being fed with manna from heaven for a time and a season prior to the entrance into caanan. Hear me saints, during this season, this woman will be cleansed from being a harlot and her harlot way of thinking, but after that she will enter into the promise of God.

 

EAGLES WINGS

EX. 19:1-6

1In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai.

2For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount.

3And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel;

4Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.

5Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

6And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

Revelation 4:7

has a description of four beasts that John saw around about God’s throne. One was like a lion, one like a calf, the third with a face like a man, and the fourth like a flying eagle.

 

These same creatures are also mentioned in a vision of God that was described in the following;

Ezekiel 1:10

10As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

Christ is pictured as a ruler, represented by the lion, in Matthew; in Mark he is presented as a servant, represented by the ox; in Luke he is presented as a man, and in John’s gospel, the spiritual or prophetic aspect of Christ is presented, which is represented by the eagle.

The powerful wings of the eagle enable it to soar to a great height, thus it views things from above, and so, scripture uses the eagle to represent the divine perspective on things, as opposed to the human viewpoint. (seeing through the spirit)

Revelation 19:10

10And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

 

In the Exodus, Israel was brought out of captivity with a great deliverance, through Moses. For the Church to be delivered from error, an understanding of Bible prophecy is crucial. The deliverance of Israel from Egypt was a judgment of God upon pharaoh, and similarly the Church’s escape to the wilderness judges Satan, who is typified by the pharaoh of Egypt at the time of the Exodus.

So, it may be, the two wings of the eagle that enable the Church to fly to the wilderness, described in Revelation 12:14, represent new understanding of the message of prophecy, that comes from God, and which was previously hidden from us.

 

Isaiah 40:31

31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

 

  1. And the (devil) serpent cast out of his mouth (a perverted word in judgment) water as a flood after the (church) woman, that he might cause her to be (destroyed with the judgment) carried away of the flood.

 

And the devil will speak from his mouth, or his false teachers a perverted word to try to contaminate the woman that he might be able to entrap her with his lies.

 

  1. And the (overcomers) earth helped the (church) woman, and the (overcomers) earth opened her mouth, (spoke the Word) and (devoured) swallowed up the (judgements and persecution) flood which the (devil) dragon cast out of his mouth. (spoke)

 

And the earth, the new earth, which is reborn man, the sons of Jesus, the brethren of Jesus, helped the woman church by opening her mouth and swallowing up the contaminated perverted words of the devil which came from his mouth and the mouth of his prophets. See, just like Aaron’s rod swallowed up the snake rods of Pharoah, so is the first born sons of Jesus.

 

  1. And the (devil) dragon was wroth (angry) with the (church) woman, and went to make (fight) war with the (remaining) remnant of her (offspring) seed, which keep the (ordinances) commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (the spirit of prophecy) (the Word of God)

 

And the dragon was angry with this woman who was now on her way to her promise. So he went to fight and cause distress and to devour the remnant of her seed which follow after the commands of God and do carry the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12 REVEALED Part Three

 

Establishing People in the Heart of God in Worship, the Principles of the Kingdom in Sonship and Maturity.

 

By Dr. Kiwi S. Kalloo

 

 

  1. And prevailed not; neither was their place found (satan and his ministers no longer have access to the heavenlies) any more in heaven.

 

In this war, this dispute that was beyond negotiation, Satan did not have any chance of winning, for he was losing very quickly and was being taken out of the way, for this heaven was being recreated without him, he was being erased and blotted out as a lost memory.

 

  1. And the (devil) great dragon was cast out, that old (satan) serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the (the fleshly realm) earth, and his (ministers) angels were cast out with him.

 

And Satan was cast out of heaven, he lost all access into the mind of the perfected son of God, the over comers, the man child, that old carnal crooked snake, called the devil and Satan. Cast out “into” the earth, the realm of the flesh or all those who dwells in the flesh for they are all deceived by him and all of his messengers with him.

 

  1. And I heard a (a new Word proclaimed) loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the (the Kingdom is here) kingdom of our God, and the power of (the many membered body) his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

 

And I heard a “loud” voice speaking “in” heaven. “now” in this present time, full salvation is come, and strength and the Kingdom of our God and the power of his many member body. For Satan, who is the accuser of the brethren of Jesus, who is the man child, is cast down and can no longer accuse the brethren of Jesus day and night for he is no more.

 

LOUD;

1) great

a) of the external form or sensible appearance of things (or of persons)

1) in particular, of space and its dimensions, as respects

a) mass and weight: great

b) compass and extent: large, spacious

c) measure and height: long

d) stature and age: great, old

b) of number and quantity: numerous, large, abundant

c) of age: the elder

d) used of intensity and its degrees: with great effort, of the affections and emotions of the mind, of natural events powerfully affecting the senses: violent, mighty, strong

2) predicated of rank, as belonging to

a) persons, eminent for ability, virtue, authority, power

b) things esteemed highly for their importance: of great moment, of great weight, importance

c) a thing to be highly esteemed for its excellence: excellent

3) splendid, prepared on a grand scale, stately

4) great things

a) of God’s preeminent blessings

b) of things which overstep the province of a created being, proud (presumptuous) things, full of arrogance, derogatory to the majesty of God

 

  1. And they overcame him by the blood of the (Jesus) Lamb, and by the (the Word of God come alive) word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

 

And they became victorious over Satan by the life of the Lamb of God who was Jesus the Christ, by the living witness and testimony, the spirit of prophecy and did not hold on to the carnal but gladly gave their lives unto death, with a realization, knowing that death no longer had any power over them.

 

  1. Therefore rejoice, (people of God, temples of God) ye heavens, and ye that dwell in (in God) them. Woe to the (those that live after the flesh) inhabiters of the earth and of the (all of humanity) sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

 

Because of this reason and divine event, “you heavens” and you that dwell in them. You who do carry God within you and you who have a place of rest in the triune God. Much grief unto those who dwells in the flesh or the carnal ream and all of humanity, for the sea speaks of all of humanity. For Satan is come down unto you, he is now in your face and he is angry and does not have any compassion and mercy to give to you, for he knows that his time is but limited even in this carnal realm. This too will come to an end.

Revelations Chapter 12 Revealed Part TWO

Revelation 12 REVEALED Part TWO

 

Establishing People in the Heart of God in Worship, the Principles of the Kingdom in Sonship and Maturity.

 

By Dr. Kiwi S. Kalloo

 

 

FLED

1) to flee away, seek safety by flight

2) metaph. to flee (to shun or avoid by flight) something abhorrent, esp. vices

3) to be saved by flight, to escape safely out of danger

4) poetically, to flee away, vanish

 

Let us understand that there is a difference between the woman and the man child, although the woman who is the church gave birth to the man child, she herself was not caught up to God and his throne, so she had to take refuge in the wilderness where she had a prepared place of God, that THEY should feed her there for three and a half years.

 

Let’s look at the parallel of Moses who took care of his family in Egypt, Joseph who took care of his family in Egypt, Jesus who took care of the church after he ascended.

 

So, out of the woman, a company of sons was born and was caught up unto God, but the woman or the church was yet to overcome and come to perfection. So the man child could no longer be hurt or affected by the enemy, nor was he subject to the earth of the carnal realm, in fact, he has become one with the Father and is now walking in the realm of the greater works ministry of Jesus Christ. So when the entire world sees him, they will be looking at the sons of Jesus, and Jesus said “if you see me, you see the Father” so in essence, when they see this man child, they are looking at Jesus. This same man Child, who is caught up, is also a prepared place for the woman.

 

WILDERNESS (speaks of the process)

1) solitary, lonely, desolate, uninhabited

a) used of places

1) a desert, wilderness

2) deserted places, lonely regions

3) an uncultivated region fit for pasturage

b) used of persons

1) deserted by others

2) deprived of the aid and protection of others, especially of friends, acquaintances, kindred

a) of a flock deserted by the shepherd

 

This wilderness is desolate, uninhabited, lonely, but prepared by God for her, that they, the “sons” feed her for 3-1/2 years. See, Jesus performed 3-1/2 years of ministry and 3-1/2 is half of the number 7 which represents perfection, so the sons of Jesus must now fulfill the remaining 3-1/2 years to make up the full 7 years and bring the woman or the church unto perfection. Israel had to go through the wilderness to get to the promise land.

 

  1. And there was war in (the realm of the spirit) heaven: Michael (Jesus) and his (ministers) angels fought against the (devil) dragon; and the (devil) dragon fought and his angels, (ministers)

 

And there was war in heaven. This place called heaven had Jesus and his angels who fought against the devil and the devil fought against his angels.

 

Michael;

Michael = “who is like God”

1)    the first of the chief princes or archangels

2)    the chief of all angels

 

Angels”

1) a messenger, envoy, one who is sent, an angel, a messenger from God

Now we see Michael who is called the great prince, standing up, and when he does a time of trouble starts and God’s people are delivered. Why is it that God’s people are delivered when Michael stands up? Why not God or Jesus? And why is Michael described as standing for the children of thy people?

Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. Jude 1:9

In Jude we see Michael confronting Satan when Moses was resurrected. Many people think of Michael as being just an angel. If this is true then why would an angel be used in such a direct confrontation as to confront Satan? Why shouldn’t God or Jesus be doing these important confrontations? (By the way, this text can be easily misunderstood. We need to relate it to other parts of the Bible.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

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.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. Revelation 12:7-12

Finally in the book of Revelation, we see that there is a war in heaven. The opposing sides are described as Michael and his angels against the dragon which we know as Satan and his angels. The war in heaven is very important. Why isn’t God or Jesus taking part in the war. Why are the angels described as being Michael’s angels and not God’s or Christ’s angels?

Just reading these few texts from the Bible seem to create more questions than answers. Who is Michael anyway? Michael is the archangel, the chief of the angels. He is described as one of the chief princes and our prince. When He stands up, things happen. He is described as standing for the children of thy people. So when He stands, there is a time of trouble that results in God’s people being delivered, every one who’s name if found written in the book. He contends directly against Satan and the angels in heaven are described as being Michael’s angels.

So, I want to ask you a question. Because Michael does things that we might think God or Jesus should be doing: Is it possible that Michael could be Jesus Christ?

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

In Thessalonians we see that the Lord is descending from heaven and He is shouting with the voice of the archangel. Most people seem to think that it is the archangel that is shouting and not Jesus. Actually there are two possible meanings to the text: (1) the archangel could be shouting for Jesus; or (2) Jesus could be doing the shouting Himself and he is using the voice of an archangel because He is the Archangel.

Some might think there is a third possibility, that two voices are sounding; Both Jesus and the archangel. however, if we look at verse 16 in the Greens Literal translation (below) we will see that this is probably not an option.

Because the Lord Himself shall come down from Heaven with a commanding shout of an archangel’s voice, and with God’s trumpet. And the dead in Christ will rise again first. Thessalonians 4:16 Greens Literal Translation

Now lets see what Christ said when He was on Earth.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.

For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.

Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,

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 5:25-29

If we compare the two Bible texts above (1 Thessalonians 4:16 and John 5:25-28) we see one of the strongest cases for supporting this truth, that Michael is Jesus.

We saw that there were two possible meanings to: “the Lord Himself shall come down from Heaven with a commanding shout of an archangel’s voice” 1 Thessalonians 4:16. They are: (1) the archangel could be shouting for Jesus; or (2) Jesus could be doing the shouting Himself and he is using the voice of an archangel because He is the Archangel.

Which one is it?

John 5:25,28 solves the problem: “the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God“. So in 1 Thessalonians, its the archangel’s voice, but in John 5, it is the voice of the Son of God! One cannot be wrong and the other right. Michael the Archangel must be Jesus!

Now that we know that it is Jesus Himself who is doing the shouting, we can read 1 Thessalonians 4:16 with new eyes. What 1 Thessalonians 4:16 is really saying, is that Jesus descends from heaven shouting with the voice of the Archangel. This comparison shows that the Archangel really is Jesus.

Also, in both Thessalonians and John we see that the voice causes the resurrection of life. The dead in Christ will rise when they hear His voice! This is the same event and Jesus and Michael must be the same person.

Revelations Chapter 12 Revealed Part ONE

Revelation 12 REVEALED Part One

 

Establishing People in the Heart of God in Worship, the Principles of the Kingdom in Sonship and Maturity.

 

By DR. Kiwi S. Kalloo

 

  1. And there appeared a great wonder (miracle, sense of awe,) in (the realm of the spirit where the woman is presently) heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, (the church adorned with the son of God) and the moon under her feet, and upon her (mind) head a crown of twelve stars: (came to the full realization of divine government)

 

WONDER

1) a sign, mark, token

a) that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from others and is known

b) a sign, prodigy, portent, i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature

1) of signs portending remarkable events soon to happen

2) of miracles and wonders by which God authenticates the men sent by him, or by which men prove that the cause they are pleading is God’s

 

This great wonder was taking place in the heaven where the woman was present, and we know that the woman is symbolic of the church, the bride of Christ. This woman had on apparel that was made out of the sun. This sun represents the light that lights the day, we know that God is light and we are the children of light. So the light of God was shining upon the church of Jesus Christ. To be clothed upon, means to be covered. This heaven referred to is a place that was accessible by God, the church and the devil. This heaven was not the third heaven, but the lower heaven. See, we are not yet perfect, so God cannot fill us with all of himself in our present experience and condition, for we are yet carnal.

 

We know that the sun gives light and rule the day and the moon which is a reflection of the sun, looks like it gives light but in reality, it’s not. It looks like the real thing but it is not, however, the moon rules the night. So this moon is also representative of the dragon or the devil which rules in the darkness, will be under the feet of the church, which is the woman. Jesus being the head of the church, the head that is born out first, representing Jesus being the first born among many brethren, and we are the brethren of Jesus. The feet is the last part that is born out of the woman at child birth and we are the last church age, the Laodecian church, the feet company of sons, the man child that is being born out from the woman who is the church. This foot company of overcomers will stand on top of the moon which is representative of the devil.

 

And upon her head, a crown of 12 stars, the number 12 speaks of divine government or Kingdom authority.

 

#1 speaks of God.

#2 speaks of a testimony and agreement, also an opposition.

#3 speaks of completion.

#4 speaks of the world, the 4 elements of the world.

#5 speaks of grace and the five fold ministry.

#6 speaks of man.

#7 speaks of perfection.

#8 speaks of a new beginning.

#9 speaks of fruitfulness.

#10 speaks of testing.

#12 speaks of divine government.

#14 speaks of a melchezidec priesthood.

#18 speaks of anti-Christ or anti-anointing.

#20 speaks of the blood.

#30 speaks of maturity.

#42 speaks of the 42nd generation, the sons of Jesus.

#144 speaks of perfect divine order.

 

1+1=2 God who is 1 added 1 to himself.

1+2=3 God made man just like himself (spirit, soul & body)

2X3=6 Man doubled himself into a rebellion of himself.

6X2=12 God making a perfect man by adding a 2nd man.

 

This woman had a crown of 12 stars upon her head. Stars speak of ministry and the head represents the mind. This tells of the church coming into an experience of the latter church, the ministry that is coming forth from God, the remnant, the called out people from a people putting on the mind of Christ.

 

  1. And she (the church) being (impregnated with the son of God) with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. (as a woman gives birth)

 

And she, the church being ripe and impregnated with the man child, which is Christ in us, the hope of Glory, was travailing with birth pains to deliver this man child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron.

 

  1. And there appeared another wonder miracle, sense of awe,) in (the realm of the spirit) heaven; and behold a great red dragon, (the devil) having seven heads (in his most perfect state of being the devil) and ten horns, (had the power to persecute and devour) and seven crowns upon his heads. (seems to be divine in operation and authority)

 

There was another wonder in heaven and the devil being full of himself in his most perfect state with the power to test the saints, having what seems to be a perfect doctrine, one of influence and oneness, exalting him.

 

  1. And his tail drew the third part of the (ministries) stars of (the realm of the spirit) heaven, and did cast them to the (realm of the flesh) earth: and the (devil) dragon stood before the (church) woman which was (fully enough) ready to be delivered, for to (kill) devour her (man child) child as soon as it was born.

 

And his tail, or his last body part, his last triumph, “drew”

 

1) to draw, drag

a) of one before the judge, to prison, to punishment

 

To say this another way, his doctrine “tail” dragged a third of the stars of heaven which is also represented here as the ministry or church of God, the one part of the man that is made up of three. Spirit, soul and body.

To say this another way, one part of the triune man which is made up of three parts,  was brought down to the earth, or the carnal realm, which is earthly. And the devil stood before the church that was ready to bring forth this son, or the sons of Jesus, the 42nd generation of Jesus Christ, the brethren of Jesus, the foot company of sons who was to rule and reign with Jesus. And this devil stood to kill and devour this child as soon as it was born.

 

DEVOUR

 

1) to consume by eating, to eat up, devour

a) to devour i.e. squander, waste: substance

b) to devour i.e. forcibly appropriate: widows’ property

c) to strip one of his goods

1) to ruin (by the infliction of injuries)

d) by fire, to devour i.e. to utterly consume, destroy

e) of the consumption of the strength of body and mind by strong emotions

 

So we see that Satan could not kill the unborn child but had to wait until it was born out of the woman. And as soon as this man child was born out of the woman, he would kill and eat, squander, strip him of his inheritance, inflict injury, ruin, destroy and utterly devour him.

 

  1. And she (the church) brought forth a (a company of overcomers) man child, who was to (rein as one with Jesus) rule all nations with a (authority) rod of (unshakable) iron: and her (the overcomer) child was caught up (became one with God) unto God, and to his (most holy place) throne.

 

And she, the church, did bear and give birth to this man child, who was to rule and reign with a rod of iron. And her child was caught up unto God and to his throne. See, the moment this child was born out of the woman he was caught up. Transfigured, transformed, glorified, perfected, became one with God. To be with the Father and his throne, means that perfection must have taken place, for no flesh can glory in his presence. See, when Jesus came up out of the water at the Jordan, the heavens gave way to him realizing that he was not the same man that went into the water, see, this man child that was born out of the woman was not like any other, for he is born not after the flesh nor the will of the flesh but the will of the spirit. This man child that is coming forth from the church will be caught up to God and his throne, he will be perfected, he will not be subject to hurt or injury by the enemy.

 

  1. And the (church that did not overcome) woman fled into the (a place of working out, a place of learning and putting off the old man) wilderness, where she hath a (a prepared body of overcomers capable of bringing the remaining church to maturity) place prepared of God, that they should (nurture) feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. (three and a half years)

 

And the church fled,

Coming Out Of Egypt (Part One)

Coming Out of Egypt

Part One

By Dr. Kiwi S. Kalloo

Establishing people in the Heart of God in Principles of the Kingdom in  Sonship, Worship and Maturity.

Genesis 11:27-32

27 Now these are the generations of Terah: (H8646 teh’·rakh means – Station. A station of Israel in the wilderness) (a stopping place for trains or other land conveyances, for the transfer of freight or passengers, a trading place) Terah begat Abram, (H87 av-raham, Exalted Father) (raised or elevated as in rank or character) Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot. (H3826 lōte which means “covering”) (something laid over or wrapped around a thing, especially for concealment, protection, or warmth. )

Terah, the Father of Abraham was a station in his life, the one who gave Abraham purpose and vision, taught Abraham to be a diligent business man and trader.

28 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nativity, in Ur of the Chaldees.

29 And Abram and Nahor took them wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai; (H8297 sä·rah’·ē which means “princess”) (a non reigning member of a royal family) and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah, and the father of Iscah.

Sarah, the wife of Abraham was indeed royalty but laid dormant in her status quo.

like Sarah, we often times get caught up in our situation and circumstances and lose sight of who we really are, see, the Word of God declares that we are sons and daughters of Almighty God, we are heirs and joint heirs with Christ, we are citizens of the Kingdom of God, we are more than conquerors in Christ, whatever we ask for in prayer we will have, whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven, we are Kings and Priests unto God, we are royalty because we belong to the Kingdom of God, see, we are directly in line to receive the promised inheritance of our Father. Sarah in this instance represents the church of Jesus Christ, who has been chosen to be a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people. But we often lose sight of who we are and the promises that belongs to us, so we end up living in defeat and poverty. When we lose faith, or lose heart, we become barren, sterile even, limiting ourselves to reproduce or to bear fruit.

1 Peter 2:9

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

30 But Sarai was barren; (H6135 ä·kär’ which means “barren or sterile”) (incapable of producing offspring) she had no child.

Like Sarah, the modern church of today has become incapable of bearing fruit, incapable of producing an offspring, unable to bring forth a son. The church of today has become barren because she has become faithless and unbelieving. See, the promise that God made to Abraham was by faith, this promise was not intended to be seen via the natural eyes. Sarah, the church has been looking for a sign, she has grown old and does not believe that God is able to restore her youth and cause her to be able to bear fruit and bring forth a man child. The word of God declares that with God all things are possible. When we focus on the negative, we are forced to conform to what we meditate on. Joshua learned a valuable secret in Joshua 1:7-8

Joshua 1:7-8

Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

The law that is mentioned here is not legalism, but the perfect law of liberty whereby Christ has set us free.

See, if we meditate on the word of God we will become what the word says, and based on that principle, we will have good success and our way will become prosperous, But we must take hold of that promise and allow that word to come alive in us and it will make the promise a reality.

Hebrews 11:8-11

By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.

By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur (H218 ür which means “flame”) (combustible, explosive consuming fire with the ability to destroy) of the Chaldees, (H3778 kas·dē’  which means “clod breaker”) (stupid, of no dignity, a mass of earth, carnal and fleshly) to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.

Terah, in this instant represent the Holy Spirit, knowing that Abraham was to be the Father of this great nation, knowing that Abraham was at a crucial place in his life where he could be destroyed and consumed, a place of foolishness, a place that lacked character, integrity and holiness, a place of carnality and pleasures of the flesh only. Terah took him, his wife and nephew who at the time was a cover and support to Abraham, and led them out of that place of destruction. How many times have we ever come to that “clod breaker” in our lives, don’t know where we are going and can’t remember where we have been, then suddenly we find that we are at a cross road, a junction, a place of crossing, a place of change and discomfort that causes us to leave the clod behind and press on to a place of something better. To say it another way, God wants us to press on to a place of growth and maturity.

Lot, the nephew acted as a prop to his uncle Abraham. In our quest and journey to the other side we often bring along what we refer to as a tag along, a middle man, a buffer, someone that can keep us distracted, a chosen distraction, someone who we can relate to, a familiar face, a secret habit or even a best friend. Someone or something that we hold dear to our heart, a distraction that at some point will need to be cut out of our lives.

Many of us have chosen to take with us a “Lot” in our journey, and what happens is that Lot often times end up taking the place of God. For he said in Revelations “you have forsaken me and left your first love and given your love to another.

Revelation  2:4

Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

 

32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years: and Terah died in Haran.
