Children or Sons?   2 comments

Hebrews 5:13.

This is from the blog A Word in Season:

“Beloved, now are we the sons (Greek: children) of God,
and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that, when he shall appear,
we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

And every man that hath this hope in him
purifieth himself, even as he is pure”
1JOHN 3:2 – 3

This powerful, liberating truth of God speaks to all those who by FAITH have been born anew into the family of God; “…we are God’s children NOW”! This is not determined by the feelings or circumstances of life; this is the certainty of God. We are now children of His, whereby we cry “Abba, Father”. To much of Christendom this is as far and as deep as things get. The beginning has become the end; we have manufactured a doctrinal thesis to keep this as the status quo. We read here in First John that there is to be a living hope that beats within our hearts of growing into a full, undimmed expression of HIM in our lives; so that when HE appears we SHALL BE LIKE HIM! This is manifested in the maturation of a growing purity within the hearts of those who know of this living hope.

“And every man that hath this hope in him
purifieth himself, even as he is pure”

While a living hope infuses the passion and pursuit of purity, a doctrinal hope has no power to convey this quest for life. It is simply a belief that lays no claim to our personal lives; a religious concept that robs the WORD of its power and authority (Mark 7:13). There is little or no cost associated with such a “belief” and the adherents of such go through life with very little change. They are children of God, loved of Him, yet bereft of the experience and privilege of growing and developing into the sons of God. In the New Testament the Greek words used to differentiate between these two (children and sons) are distinct*. As a child develops, added responsibilities are given and with these responsibilities the added privileges of life. We do not give a three year old the car keys. God measures out to His own the pounds and the talents according to their “ability” but  we see the withholding of truth to those who are unexercised in the development of true spiritual discernment.

“For every one that useth milk
is unskilful in the word of righteousness:
for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them
that are of full age,
even those who by reason of use
have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil”
HEBREWS 5:13 – 14

And again:

“And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual,
but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
I have fed you with milk, and not with meat:
for hitherto ye were not able to bear it,
neither yet now are ye able”
1CORINTHIANS 3:1

Strong meat belongs to those who have grown from a child toward that full-aged development by the exercising of their senses to discern “good and evil”. Discernment is developed by growing into a pure heart so that we can see clearly and objectively (1Corinthians 2:15). “Then you shall again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him” (Malachi 3:18). It is only by us becoming pure in heart that we shall see God and have the ability to discern between good and evil.

“And everyone that has THIS hope in him
purifies himself as he is pure”

The revelation of our hope is verified in a growing purity. That hope is the bridge between what we are now and what we will be when HE appears. All we need to do is to look at the parables of Jesus. They all speak of faith as a living, growing, dynamic filled with HIS very life. The parable of the sower clearly states that the fruitfulness of a life is completely dependent upon the soil of the heart into which the precious seed falls. The seed that fell on the stony ground is the same seed that fell into the soil that brought forth the hundred fold harvest. The only difference is the soil, not the seed.

We need to take responsibility for our growth and development in God. A living hope, burning within the hearts of those who are in full pursuit of purity, is the means of growth from an infant unto maturity.

The heart is the lens through which we see God.

“Blessed are the pure in heart:
for they shall see God”
(Matthew 5:8)

*NOTE
Huios (son) at times refers to a legal heir and thus, by implication, an adult. It seems to underscore the character or maturity of the individual. Teknon (child or children) is a more general designation for offspring and contemplates the individual as one who is parented, one who has been born to another. For example, Jesus is never designated as teknon or teknon Theou (gen. of Theos (G2316), God), Son of God, but always ho huios, the Son, the Son of God or the Son of Man

Also:

“The difference between believers as “children of God” and as “sons of God” is brought out in Rom. 8:14-21. The Spirit bears witness with their spirit that they are “children of God,” and, as such, they are His heirs and joint-heirs with Christ. This stresses the fact of their spiritual birth (vv. 16, 17). On the other hand, “as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God,” i.e., “these and no other.” Their conduct gives evidence of the dignity of their relationship and their likeness to His character.” (Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testaments Words, by W.E. Vine)

Exposure of Corruption in USA   1 comment

Falling Dominoes

This is from the blog Richard’s Watch:

Thank you Lord for Veronika West’s posting this morning in tandem with news further confirmation of the exposure of corruption, as in my hunch of May 2016 (Is The Lord Exposing Rotten Politics? UK, USA – next EU??). Interesting that this was concurrent with a Godly version of the domino effect for that month, as seen by Patsy Southway.

Here’s today’s word from Veronika:

AMERICA; A LITTLE BLACK BOOK WILL BE OPENED CAUSING A DOMINO EFFECT; THE SOUND OF HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE WILL BE HEARD!

IN MY TIME WITH THE LORD THIS MORNING AS I WAS PRAYING FOR THE NATIONS, THE NATION OF AMERICA WAS BROUGHT BEFORE ME AND, AS I BEGAN TO PRAY, SUDDENLY I SAW A NUMBER OF LITTLE BLACK BOOKS STANDING ON END IN A LONG LINE LIKE DOMINOS, AND THEN I SAW THE FINGER OF GOD COME INTO THE MIDST OF THE VISION AND HIS FINGER LIGHTLY TOUCHED THE FIRST LITTLE BLACK BOOK AND I WATCHED AS A POWERFUL DOMINO EFFECT TOOK PLACE.

THEN I HEARD THESE WORDS, “WATCH! AS MY SPIRIT OF TRUTH IS NOW MOVING TO BRING EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE, EXPOSURE AS THE LITTLE BLACK BOOK IS OPENED, ALL WILL BE UNCOVERED AND REVEALED FOR THE SOUND OF THE GAVEL OF MY JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS WILL BE HEARD GOING FORTH ACROSS THIS LAND”

Veronika West, 7th July 2019

With this word she republishes the following extract from A Warning to the All Nations of the Earth! as received on 8th December 2018:

‘I hear the Spirit of God say, “WATCH AND PRAY FOR THESE ARE THE DAYS OF ELIJAH, THESE ARE THE DAYS OF SUDDEN AND SEVERE SHAKINGS IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, FOR A DIVINE DISMANTLING IS NOW GIVING WAY TO EVEN GREATER DESTRUCTION IN THE NATIONS, BUT FEAR NOT FOR MY RIGHTEOUS ANGER BURNS HOT AGAINST THE ENEMIES OF THE LIVING GOD, WATCH! FOR NOW I AM DOING A NEW THING IN THE MIDST OF YOU, A THING THAT SHALL ASTONISH AND ASTOUND, A THING THAT SHALL CONFUSE AND CONFOUND, A THING THAT IS STRANGE AND MYSTERIOUS, EYES HAVE NOT SEEN AND EARS HAVE NOT HEARD AND MINDS COULD NOT CONCEIVE WHAT I AM ABOUT TO DO IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, NOW WATCH!

“AS THE MOLES ARE DRIVEN OUT OF THEIR HOLES AND THE BLACK SNAKES EMERGE FROM THE DARKNESS OF THEIR CAVES, LISTEN! FOR MANY WILL CRY OUT “THERE IS NOWHERE TO HIDE, THERE IS NO WAY OF ESCAPE”, BUT SURELY I TELL YOU THAT THEIR WORKS OF WICKEDNESS AND THEIR ACTS OF EVIL HAVE COME UP BEFORE ME ONCE AGAIN AS AN ABOMINATION. WATCH AND PAY ATTENTION! FOR THE GAVEL OF MY JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS NOW FALLS UPON THE HEADS OF THE WICKED SENTENCING THEM TO AN ETERNAL SEPARATION, I TELL YOU THE TRUTH I SHALL EVEN FORGET THE DAY THAT I CREATED THEM”, says the Spirit of the Living God.

‘When I received this word today I was physically shaken to my core as the Spirit of the Fear of the Lord came upon me. I began to cry out to the Father to show Mercy for it was shown to me in but a fleeting moment what lay in store for those who have killed the unborn and those who have defied the ways of the Living God in the Nations, and then suddenly I saw into the realm of the Spirit where I saw two Archangels of the Lord, one had the appearance of a pillar of blazing Fire and the other held a sharp sickle in his hand, as I dared to look upon them I saw that they were standing between heaven and hell they were standing READY TO GO INTO THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH!’

This is the comment I left on Richard’s Watch:

[8 July 2019]

Praise the Lord! This word from Veronica West really bears witness with my spirit.

I was hitchhiking in Idaho a a couple of days ago and this guy from Southern California picked me up. He told me about the 6.4 and 7.1 earthquakes near Ridgecrest, California that happened a few days ago. I hadn’t had any access to the news for a few days, so I thought it was Providential that a Californian told me about the earthquakes in California. The 7.1 earthquake was the worst earthquake to hit California in over two decades.

“WATCH AND PRAY FOR THESE ARE THE DAYS OF ELIJAH, THESE ARE THE DAYS OF SUDDEN AND SEVERE SHAKINGS IN THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH, FOR A DIVINE DISMANTLING IS NOW GIVING WAY TO EVEN GREATER DESTRUCTION IN THE NATIONS.”

View of Mount Hood from Portland, Oregon

Last night the Presence of God was very strong as I slept on the floor at my friend’s place in Montana.  This morning, he told me that he had a dream last night about Mount Hood having a volcanic eruption.  Mount Hood is just over 50 miles east of Portland, Oregon.

A Hay Field in Iowa   Leave a comment

Dreams from the LORD 2011-2019
2 July 2019

Last night I had a dream where I was at the Jerry Shey farm in Iowa. I noticed that the gravel around the garage was very rough and had a lot of potholes in it. So I hooked up this grading implement to the small tractor and began to grade the area around the garage. I then drove down the lane north of the house and graded the lane to the highway. I got to the highway and turned around to drive back up the lane. I then noticed around a hundred head of cattle in the hay field and some cattle in the ditch along the highway. So I jumped off the tractor and ran into the ditch to get the cattle out of the ditch and back into the hay field. The cattle weren’t ours; I saw a few of the neighbors running around trying to keep their cattle in the hay field. When we got the cattle back into the hay field, I then noticed that the whole herd of cattle ran to the lane that I had just graded and ran north up the ditch along the highway. We then ran up the ditch to try and get the cattle back in the hay field. Then the dream ended.

This dream reminds me of the phrase “letting the cat out of the bag.” This dream also reminds me of the scripture in Numbers 32:23: “and be sure your sin will find you out.”

Spiritual Discernment   4 comments

This is from the blog A Word in Season:

DISCERNMENT AND RELATIONSHIP

“But he who is spiritual discerns all things,
and he himself is judged by no one.”
1 Corinthians 2:15

Discernment has nothing to do with intellectual prowess. True discernment is the aggregate result of an individual’s walk and life in Christ. Many today have confidence in their spiritual condition due to the overflow of teachings readily available to all. Any teaching that does not bring a corresponding measure of the “fear of the Lord” is bereft of truth. The foundation of a discerning life is built upon the fear of the Lord. (Proverbs 2:3-13)

Discernment requires a walk and an abiding in Him; the things of God will always culminate in the character of Christ. The very essence of truth is Christ who is the Truth. Whenever an expression is in conflict with His nature or character, it will be exposed.

Discernment is a consequence
of our abiding in Him.

Discernment is a faculty developed over time (see note below). It is the natural function of a life which has grown in its relationship with Christ Himself. This sounds trite, but it is a knowing which is the fruit of relationship; not an accumulation of knowledge about Him on an intellectual level. A carnal familiarity with God produces pride, self-assurance and an inflated view of self, whereas a true knowledge of God fills the heart with the wonder of Christ Himself. It is from this place of vital, intimate relationship that all things are compared with Him who is true.

“Which things we also speak,
not in words taught in human wisdom,
but in Words taught of the Holy Spirit,
comparing spiritual things with spiritual things”
1 Corinthians 2:14

Words, apart from the power and unction of the Holy Spirit, will leave people incapable of true discernment. Knowledge is a deceptive thing because it gives the perception that having a familiarity with the things of God alone is a safeguard. Words taught by the Holy Spirit produce a life of obedience which alone brings us into relationship with the living Christ. Obedience is the way into a life of friendship and relationship with God.

“You are my friends,
if you do whatsoever I command you”
John 15:14

A disobedient life will never have the true faculty of discernment because it is does not have an experiential identification with Christ. Friendship with God is revealed in an obedient life. Obedience is the fruit of a life that loves God more than itself. True discernment cannot be disassociated from obedience and the fear of the Lord.

Note: Discernment of a diligent believer is developed over time by its constant use from which a growing sensitivity to Him and His ways is fostered:

“But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age,
even those who by reason of use
have their senses exercised to discern
both good and evil”
Hebrews 5:14

This is from the blog The Wisdom of Faith:

“Whenever you find a man of God, you will also find an overwhelming passion for God that is almost beyond control. Not a curiosity about God, but a deep passion to experience God in all of His fullness.”

–A.W. Tozer, Delighting in God
