PAIN is not defeat, but a reminder this mortal BODY is temporary, “For which cause WE FAINT NOT; but though our OUTWARD MAN PERISH, yet the INWARD MAN IS RENEWED day by day. For our light AFFLICTION, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and ETERNAL WEIGHT OF GLORY;” [2 Corinthians 4:16-17] ...

EXODUS IN THE AIR

1. EXODUS is a Greek word, means “GOING OUT” and mostly used to describe the “GOING OUT” of Israel from Egypt, “Now the sojourning of the CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, who dwelt in Egypt, was FOUR HUNDRED and THIRTY YEARS. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and] thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the HOSTS of the LORD WENT OUT from the land of Egypt” [Exodus 12:40-41] Four hundred years did not become 430 years because God was unfaithful; God did not add 30 extra years to bring out His people. He is God Almighty and will neither change His word nor falter His deed; it was exactly 400 years by His reckoning of time and 430 years by the measure of Egypt’s calendar. God also appointed us 6 DAYS, amounting to 6,000 years on earth and the 7th DAY for their REST, in His Presence. In the “NIGHT” of the 6th DAY is our EXODUS IN THE AIR, when we shall be clothed with the glory of the SON of God [Hebrews 4:3] Natural calendars tell us 6,000 are over by 21 years, God’s clock is perfect; He alone knows the DAY and HOUR of our “GOING OUT” of this world, “WATCH therefore, for YE KNOW NEITHER the DAY nor the HOUR wherein the SON OF MAN COMETH” [Matthew 25:13] 

2. EXODUS means SH’MOT, that is, NAMES; BOOK of NAMES of every SOUL that went down to Egypt [Exodus 1:1] God also had our NAMES in His BOOK before we were born and CHOSE us in Him, to conform to His SON “For whom he did FOREKNOW, he also did PREDESTINATE to be CONFORMED to the IMAGE of his SON, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren” [Romans 8:29] The PASSOVER LAMB slaughtered in Egypt represented the SON; as many as ATE the FLESH and splashed the BLOOD on their door posts were CONFORMED to the IMAGE of the SON [Exodus 12:1-13] We are the “OTHER SHEEP” whose progenitors did not EAT the LAMB in Egypt, but CONFORMED to the SON, when we ATE His FLESH and “DRANK” His BLOOD, as it is written: “… Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye EAT the FLESH of the SON of man, and DRINK HIS BLOOD, ye have no LIFE IN YOU” [John 6:53] His FLESH of Christ is the GOSPEL preached in the NAME of Jesus Christ and His BLOOD, GRACE to take our place in the “.. GENERAL ASSEMBLY and CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN, which are WRITTEN IN HEAVEN, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect“ [Hebrews 12:23] We are the “OTHER SHEEP”, who HEARD His VOICE in due season and shall be TRANSLATED as ONE FOLD, as it is written: “And OTHER SHEEP I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall HEAR MY VOICE; and there shall be ONE FOLD, and ONE SHEPHERD” [John 10:16]

3. The “GOING OUT” of Israel was at NIGHT, and God called them out by a Prophet, “And BY A PROPHET the LORD BROUGHT ISRAEL OUT OF EGYPT, and by a prophet was he preserved” [Hosea 12:13] The people required a Prophet because they knew not the WAY and it was NIGHT. NIGHT is the SEASON of grand DECEPTION fueled by CONFUSION, such as we find ourselves today. EAVENS” are shaken, earth’s axis is out of place and all permutations of nature are out of order, as it is written: Therefore I will SHAKE the HEAVENS, and the EARTH SHALL REMOVE OUT OF HER PLACE, in the wrath of the LORD of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger” [Isaiah 13:13] Hordes of malevolent entities displaced from “HEAVENS” lay siege to our world, nations are clueless to stem the tide of social disorder, economic instability, terror, famine, pestilence and imminent anarchy. DECEPTION looms large over a traumatized world and not a few have fallen back who were once in the Lord. No man knows the route of EXODUS IN THE AIR, because “… NO MAN HATH ASCENDED UP TO HEAVEN, but he that came down from heaven, even the SON OF MAN WHICH IS IN HEAVEN” [John 3:13] The Lord Himself shall appear to take us home and has sent His Prophets to make us ready. His Prophets are WATCHMEN of the age, warning all men to prepare for His imminent appearance, but some would not yield, “And for this cause God shall send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should BELIEVE A LIE: That they ALL MIGHT BE DAMNED who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” [2 Thessalonians 2:10-12]

4. EXODUS IN THE AIR is the fulfilment of promise Jesus made to His disciples, saying: “LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED: ye believe in God, believe also in me. … . I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN, and RECEIVE YOU unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” [John 14:1-3] He foretold a time of TROUBLE, such as Israel endured in Egypt but worse. It is increasingly difficult to abide in the FAITH, as the WICKED ride roughshod on the earth, “And ye shall be HATED of all men for MY NAME’S SAKE: but he that shall ENDURE unto the END, the same SHALL BE SAVED” [Matthew 13:13] Brethren, “END” is in sight, when every man conformed to Christ shall be TRANSLATED to be with Him forever, “… in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the DEAD SHALL BE RAISED incorruptible, and WE SHALL BE CHANGED” [1 Corinthians 15:52] Friend, are you CONFORMED to Christ? Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour and inscribe your NAME in His BOOK OF NAMES, amen

	

ETERNAL PURPOSE

1. God created man to be like Him, saying: “… Let us make MAN IN OUR IMAGE, after OUR LIKENESS: and let them have DOMINION …” [Genesis 1:26] We were in Him from the beginning, otherwise we could not be like Him in FORM and LIKENESS. In conformity with His ETERNAL PURPOSE, He chose us to be like Him in GLORY and HOLINESS, “According as he hath CHOSEN US in him BEFORE the FOUNDATION of the WORLD, that we should be HOLY and WITHOUT BLAME before him IN LOVE” [Ephesians 1:4] To accomplish His PURPOSE, God put a measure of Himself in us, an “EARNEST” of His GOODWILL, “And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and BREATHED into his nostrils the BREATH OF LIFE; and MAN became a LIVING SOUL” [Genesis 2:7] God is ETERNAL, and by His BREATHE gave us mandate of ENDLESS LIFE,  “And this is the PROMISE that he hath promised us, even ETERNAL LIFE” [1 John 2:25] God’s ETERNAL PURPOSE for man is to KNOW Him as He is, the ONE TRUE GOD, and REIGN with Him forever, ”Beloved, now are we the sons 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” [1 John 3:2]

2. To step into God’s PURPOSE, we must do away with SIN, “For the WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH; but the GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE through Jesus Christ our Lord” [Romans 6:23] Jesus Christ is the SON, the fulness of the FATHER; the TRUE GOD and author of ETERNAL LIFE, “Beware lest ANY MAN SPOIL YOU through PHILOSOPHY and VAIN DECEIT, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For IN HIM DWELLETH all the FULNESS of the GODHEAD bodily” [Colossians 2:8-9] The FATHER was manifest in the SON, that all men may KNOW Him and be reconciled to EVERLASTING LIFE. If any man claims to know God and has not received the SON as LORD and SAVIOUR, he deceives himself, “But as many as RECEIVED HIM, to them gave he POWER TO BECOME the SONS OF GOD, even to them that BELIEVE IN HIS NAME” [John 1:12] In Christ, we receive POWER of adoption as SONS of God, fulfilling the basic condition of our ETERNAL PURPOSE. Be not deceived, if any man thinks he is a SON by persuasion, cogitation or religious indoctrination, he is mistaken. ETERNAL LIFE is not a shared experience, but Christ revealing Himself to you and in you, as it is written: “All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and HE TO WHOM the SON WILL REVEAL HIM” [Luke 10:22]

3. We are SONS of God because we know Him, yet are we not established in His ETERNAL PURPOSE until we give up the “OLD MAN” to LIVE and DO His COMMANDMENTS, “He that saith, I KNOW HIM, and KEEPETH NOT HIS COMMANDMENTS, IS A LIAR, and the TRUTH IS NOT IN HIM” [1 John 2:4] Why do we struggle to obey Christ’s COMMANDMENTS? The answer is simple; We did not experience POWER of His RESURRECTION, either because we did not DIE with Him or DIED in part, as it is written: “That I may KNOW HIM, and the POWER OF HIS RESURRECTION, and the FELLOWSHIP of his SUFFERINGS, being made CONFORMABLE unto his DEATH” [Philippians 3:10] The evidence of “KNOWING” Him is conformity to His DEATH on the Cross, that is, giving up everything we were and ever wished to be, to become like Him in total submission to the WILL of God, “Therefore we are BURIED with him by BAPTISM UNTO DEATH: that like as Christ was RAISED UP from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE” [Romans 6:4] When we empty our hearts of SELF, the SPIRIT of Christ fills up the void and we are BORN into “NEWNESS OF LIFE”, as it is written: “I am CRUCIFIED with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but CHRIST LIVETH IN ME: and the life which I now live in the flesh I LIVE by the FAITH of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me [Galatians 2:20] His SPIRIT in you is proof you were in Him from the foundation of the world, “For whom he did FOREKNOW, he also did PREDESTINATE to be CONFORMED to the IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN” [Romans 8:29]

4. God’s ETERNAL PURPOSE for you is moderated by TIME and JUDGMENT, and “… to every PURPOSE there is TIME and JUDGMENT, therefore the misery of man is great upon him” [Ecclesiastics 8:5-6] TIME is limited and fast running out, when the Lord shall appear to receive His BRIDE and we shall be translated “… unto the measure of the STATURE of the FULNESS OF CHRIST” [Ephesians 4:13] Brethren, let us be vigilant, WATCHING and PREPARING to be ready for His imminent appearance; putting aside every shade of DISTRACTION, “WATCH YE therefore, and PRAY ALWAYS, that ye may be accounted WORTHY TO ESCAPE all these things that shall come to pass, and to STAND BEFORE the SON OF MAN” [Luke 21:36] “WATCH” requires we study to align our lives with God; turning our lives over to Jesus Christ, PRAYING night and day for strength both to fulfil ETERNAL PURPOSE. Friend, take the first step into your ETERNAL PURPOSE today; accept Jesus Christ as your LORD and SAVIOUR, amen.

PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE

1. FIG is the first tree mentioned by name in the Bible, “And the EYES of them both were OPENED, and they knew that they were NAKED; and they SEWED FIG LEAVES together, and made themselves aprons” [Genesis 3:7] Adam and his wife were on site for fellowship with God, presumably under shade of the FIG TREE, but ill-prepared to WORSHIP Him, “And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?  And he said, I HEARD THY VOICE in the garden, and I WAS AFRAID, because I WAS NAKED; and I HID MYSELF” [Genesis 3:9-10] The apron of FIG LEAVES simulated man-made RELIGION, an outward show of piety, “Having a FORM OF GODLINESS, but DENYING THE POWER thereof: from such turn away” [2 Timothy 3:5] God established the precept for TRUE RELIGION on the BLOOD of the LAMB and made “COATS OF SKINS” for Adam and Eve; a sure cover from SIN, through shedding of BLOOD [Genesis 3:21] PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE drew inspiration from Eden to foreshadow events leading to the END, ”Now learn a PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE; When her BRANCH IS YET TENDER, and PUTTETH FORTH LEAVES, ye know that SUMMER IS NEAR” [Mark 13:28]

2. Israel was the FIG TREE in Luke 13: 6-9, to which Jesus spoke in PARABLES, “He spake also this PARABLE; A certain man had a FIG TREE planted in his vineyard; and he came and SOUGHT FRUIT thereon, and FOUND NONE” [Luke 13:6] The PARABLE was dramatized in Mark 11:12-14, where Jesus came to a FIG TREE, “… if haply HE MIGHT FIND ANY THING THEREON: and when he came to it, HE FOUND NOTHING BUT LEAVES; for the TIME OF FIGS WAS NOT YET” [Mark 11:13] Christ’s expectations were not misplaced; FIG TREES bring forth twice in one season. EARLY FIGS arrive about April/May and the main HARVEST in SUMMER [Revelation 6:13] Jesus came seeking “FIRSTFRUITS” from Israel; the nation had the TEMPLE and the people went to great lengths to demonstrate their love for God, but were NAKED and like Adam and Eve covered in LEAVES of man-made RELIGION, as it is written: “This people DRAWETH NIGH unto me with their mouth, and HONOURETH ME with their lips; but their HEART IS FAR FROM ME. But in VAIN THEY DO WORSHIP ME, teaching for doctrines the COMMANDMENTS OF MEN” [Matthew 15:8-9] Man-made RELIGION is the craft of vanity and a snare; it seems right and sensible, but the end is destruction, “There is a WAY WHICH SEEMETH RIGHT unto a man, but the end thereof are the WAYS OF DEATH” [Proverbs 14:12] Jesus is not coming for RELIGION but FAITH, “… Nevertheless when the SON OF MAN COMETH, SHALL HE FIND FAITH on the earth?” [Luke 18:8]

3. Peter, James, John and Andrew asked Jesus, “Tell us, WHEN SHALL THESE THINGS BE? and what shall be the SIGN WHEN ALL THESE THINGS SHALL BE FULFILLED?” [Mark 13:4] Take note, “THESE THINGS” occurred twice in the verse; the first mention signifies JUDGMENT of the old FIG TREE and of which Jesus said: “… LET NO FRUIT GROW ON THEE HENCEFORWARD for ever. And PRESENTLY THE FIG TREE WITHERED away” [Matthew 21:19] The old FIG TREE indeed began to wither and was cut down in AD 70 by a merciless Roman army; the Temple was destroyed as foretold, “… Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down” [Mark 13:2] The second part of Mark 13:4, refer to the SIGN preceding the HARVEST of the world, ”Now learn a PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE; When her BRANCH IS YET TENDER, and PUTTETH FORTH LEAVES, ye know that SUMMER IS NEAR” [Mark 13:28] Thee old FIG TREE was cut down and for close to two thousand years the stump was unattended, but against all odds Israel sprang up in one day “Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a NATION BORN AT ONCE? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children” [Isaiah 66:8] Israel was BORN AGAIN in 1948, the “BRANCH” is “TENDER” and there is yet no TEMPLE, that is the SIGN. Watch closely, as David made a deal with Araunah, so shall Israel do with her neighbours [2 Samuel 24:24] When you see the STONES in place, “… ye know that SUMMER IS NEAR” [Mark 13:28]

4. PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE illustrate the HARVEST of the world. EARLY FIGS or BREBA crop are concurrent with FIRSTFRUITS and were gathered some 2,000 years ago, when “.. graves were opened; and many bodies of the SAINTS WHICH SLEPT AROSE, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many” [Matthew 27:52-53] Main HARVEST is SUMMER, when the Lord shall appear to receive His BRIDE. SUMMER indeed is upon us, “THESE THINGS” in the second part of Mark 13:4 are running wild before our eyes, “And when THESE THINGS begin to come to pass, then LOOK UP, and lift up your heads; for YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH” [Luke 21:28] GLEANING is the end of HARVEST, correlating to the GREAT TRIBULATION, when they should be beheaded for their FAITH, as it is written: “… I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held. … and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled” [Revelation 6:9-11] Beloved, let us WATCH and PRAY to be counted worthy of a place at the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the LAMB, “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God” [Revelation 19:9]

Watch “CALLING OF GRACE” on YouTube

Listen well, SALVATION is not a RELIGION; It is FAITH in the CALLING OF GRACE, by which we are initiated and established in the MYSTERY of godliness, “And without controversy great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” [1 Timothy 3:16] …

MYSTERY BRIDEGROOM AND HIS BRIDE

1. MYSTERY BRIDEGROOM AND HIS BRIDE is God’s PURPOSE concealed in plain sight, ”It is the GLORY OF GOD TO CONCEAL a thing: but the HONOUR of KINGS is to SEARCH out a matter” [Proverbs 25:2] God “CONCEALED” the WOMAN in Adam, separated her from his RIB and afterwards joined them in MARRIAGE, “Therefore shall a MAN LEAVE HIS FATHER and MOTHER, and shall CLEAVE UNTO HIS WIFE: and they shall be ONE FLESH” [Genesis 2:24] We were chosen in God before the foundation of the world to be His BRIDE “According as he hath CHOSEN US IN HIM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:” [Ephesians 1:4] Here is a MYSTERY, the WOMAN was joined to the MAN to TEND and INHERIT Eden, not to fuel PASSION, “And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an HELP MEET for him” [Genesis 2:18] We, likewise, are joined by PREDESTINATION to God as children and BRIDE, as JOINT-HEIRS with His SON, our MYSTERY BRIDEGROOM ”And if children, then heirs; HEIRS OF GOD, and JOINT-HEIRS WITH CHRIST; if so be that we SUFFER WITH HIM, that we may be also GLORIFIED TOGETHER” [Romans 8:17]

2. When a man leaves FATHER and MOTHER to “CLEAVE” to his WIFE, He bears WITNESS of the SON, who in due season came out of the FATHER to “CLEAVE” to His BRIDE, “For GOD SO LOVED the WORLD, that HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM should not perish, but HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE” [John 3:16] God gave us Himself, hid in the SON, our MYSTERY BRIDEGROOM; the fulness of God clothed in frame of man “For unto us a child is born, unto us A SON IS GIVEN: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and HIS NAME shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The EVERLASTING FATHER, The Prince of Peace” [Isaiah 9:6] A MAN is joined to a WOMAN in MARRIAGE to become ONE FLESH, so did God become like us that He might RECONCILE us to Himself in ONE BODY through Jesus Christ, “And without controversy great is the MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” [1 Timothy 3:16] God was born, a lowly carpenter, our BRIDEGROOM was hid in MYSTERY to redeem us and there was “… no beauty that we should desire him. He is DESPISED and REJECTED of men; a MAN OF SORROWS, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and WE ESTEEMED HIM NOT” [Isaiah 53:2-3]

3. We are His BRIDE not because we first loved Him, but He loved us first and “… GAVE HIMSELF FOR US, that he might REDEEM US from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a PECULIAR PEOPLE, ZEALOUS of GODD WORKS” [Titus 2:14] We were drawn to His Cross by the hearing of GOSPEL to DIE as He did to the FLESH “… BURIED with him by BAPTISM into DEATH: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE” [Romans 6:5] At the Cross, we forsook ALL we ever wished to be to be raised as His BRIDE in “NEWNESS OF LIFE”, “And that he died for all, that they which live SHOULD NOT HENCEFORTH LIVE UNTO THEMSELVES, BUT UNTO HIM which died for them, and ROSE AGAIN” [2 Corinthians 5:15] We are alive in Him and live for Him as “MEMBERS” of His BODY and He, the HEAD, “From whom the whole BODY FITLY JOINED together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the EFFECTUAL WORKING in the measure of every part, maketh INCREASE of the BODY unto the edifying of itself in love” [Ephesians 4:16] While Adam was absent, his BRIDE was deceived; let us, therefore, WATCH and PRAY not to be DECEIVED while He is away, but be “FITLY JOINED” to Him, “For this cause shall a MAN leave his father and mother, and SHALL BE JOINED UNTO HIS WIFE, and they two shall be ONE FLESH. This is a GREAT MYSTERY: but I speak concerning CHRIST and the CHURCH” [Ephesians 5:30-32]

4. His BRIDE has waited long and the BRIDEGROOM is at the door, saying: “And, behold, I COME QUICKLY; and MY REWARD IS WITH ME, to give EVERY man according as HIS WORK shall be” [Revelation 22:12] He has prepared a place for us, an everlasting inheritance beyond human or angelic imagination “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God PREPARED FOR THEM THAT LOVE HIM” [1 Corinthians 2:8] Now, we are joined to Him in this BODY, but when He shall appear, we shall be WEDDED to Him in the fulness of glory. Let us, therefore, prepare our WEDDING GARMENTS with RIGHTEOUSNES and, “Let us be GLAD and REJOICE, and give honour to him: for the MARRIAGE of the LAMB is come, and his WIFE HATH MADE HERSELF READY. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNES OF SAINTS” [Revelation 19:7-9] When He shall appear, the veil of MYSTERY shall be removed and we shall SEE Him as He is at the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the LAMB, “And he saith unto me, Write, BLESSED ARE THEY WHICH ARE CALLED to the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the LAMB. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God” [Revelation 19:9]

5. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and book your seat at the MARRIAGE SUPPER of the LANB, amen.


PARABLE OF CHURCH IN SODOM

PARABLE OF CHURCH IN SODOM
1. PARABLE OF CHURCH IN SODOM is the story of a Church weighed in the balance and found wanting.
Lot started so well, but Sodom was something else, ”… (For that RIGHTEOUS MAN dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, VEXED HIS RIGHTEOUS SOUL soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)” [2 Peter 2:7-8] Things got so bad in Sodom, the Lord decided it was time to deliver JUST Lot and separate WHEAT from CHAFF, “And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because THEIR SIN IS VERY GRIEVOUS; I WILL GO DOWN NOW, and see whether they have done altogether according to the CRY of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know” [Genesis 18:20-21] A rejuvenated Sodom is taking shape before our eyes; an evil and adulterous generation has redefined and repackaged ABOMINATIONS for global consumption and the Church is not immune. We are at the cusp of another VISITATION, when the SON OF MAN shall be revealed to DELIVER and RECEIVE His BRIDE, “… AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF LOT; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; … Even thus shall it be in the day when the SON OF MAN IS REVEALED” [Luke 17:28-31]

2. PARABLE OF CHURCH IN SODOM is the hypocrisy of a generation entrusted with unsurpassed revelation of GOD’S WORD but totally lacking in HOPE of His PROMISE, “For WE ARE SAVED BY HOPE: but HOPE THAT IS SEEN IS NOT HOPE: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?” [Romans 8:24] The pedigree of CHURCH IN SODOM was in the WORD; when God called Abraham to receive the PROMISE of SALVATION through FAITH, Lot went with him, “So ABRAM DEPARTED, as the LORD had SPOKEN unto him; and LOT WENT WITH HIM … “ [Genesis 12:4] Lot dwelt with Abraham as strangers and PILGRIMS in the Promised Land, and flourished in HOPE of God’s PROMISE, for they desired a “… better country, that is, an HEAVENLY: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath PREPARED FOR THEM A CITY” [Hebrews 11:6] When Lot went down to Sodom, His FAITH was intact but no longer in HOPE of God’s PROMISE. He saw in the plains of Jordan the end of his pilgrimage, the “HEAVENLY CITY” of his dream was in sight, as it is written: “And Lot LIFTED UP HIS EYES, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, … EVEN AS THE GARDEN OF THE LORD, … “ [Genesis 13:10] We are the CHURCH IN SODOM, a generation whose EVIDENCE of FAITH is GAIN and every mention of HOPE in God’s PROMISE is the subject of “Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, SUPPOSING THAT GAIN IS GODLINESS: from such withdraw thyself” [1 Timothy 6:5]

3. PARABLE OF CHURCH IN SODOM is the tragedy of the Church whose cup is filled with INIQUITY and PRIDE is her undoing, but she would not relent, “Behold, this was the INIQUITY of thy SISTER SODOM, PRIDE, FULNESS OF BREAD, and abundance of IDLENESS was in her and in her daughters, NEITHER DID SHE STRENGTHEN THE HAND OF THE POOR and needy” [Ezekiel 16:49] We are the Laodicean Church, rich in goods beyond measure, whose heart is lifted up in PRIDE, as it is written: “By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou INCREASED THY RICHES, and THINE HEART IS LIFTED UP because of thy riches” [Ezekiel 28:5] No Church has ever been this rich, there is “FULNESS OF BREAD” and sadly, “ABUNDANCE OF IDLENESS”; the sort that made Lot to relocate his seat from the altar to the gate of Sodom, “And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and LOT SAT IN THE GATE OF SODOM: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground” [Genesis 19:1] Shepherd of CHURCH IN SODOM left his flocks, “POOR and NEEDY” of instruction, to fraternize at the “GATE OF SODOM” with rulers of the land. Are we not the CHURCH IN SODOM, whose Pastors disdain their “FIRST LOVE” to hobnob with politicians? “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because THOU HAST LEFT THY FIRST LOVE” [Revelation 2:4] When a man leaves his “FIRST LOVE” to follow others, he becomes an ADULTERER, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the FRIENDSHIP WITH THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” [James 4:4]

4. PARABLE OF CHURCH IN SODOM is the dilemma of men like Demas, “For Demas hath forsaken me, HAVING LOVED THIS PRESENT WORLD, and is departed unto Thessalonica … “ [2 Timothy 4:10] When the angels arrived Sodom, Lot was quick to call his flocks to ESCAPE looming damnation, “And LOT WENT OUT, and SPAKE unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But HE SEEMED AS ONE THAT MOCKED unto his sons in law” [Genesis 19:14] The angels are here and the MESSAGE is the same; the Lord is calling His SHEEP to ESCAPE to higher grounds in preparation for His imminent appearance, “But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE, and I know them, and THEY FOLLOW ME” [John 10:26-27] When Lot was done speaking, only his wife and two unmarried daughters believed; even so, Lot’s wife fell away and was damned. “REMEMBER LOT’S WIFE”; it is not enough to BELIEVE for a while, only those who HOLD ON to the end shall be saved,” [Luke 17:32] Anchor your FAITH in sure HOPE of His appearance and you will not be ashamed in the day of His VISITATION.


PARABLE OF MASKS AND THE MARK

1. Jesus taught the multitudes with PARABLES, but to His disciples, He said: “… Unto you it is given to know the MYSTERIES of the KINGDOM OF GOD: but to others in PARABLES; that seeing they might NOT SEE, and hearing they might NOT UNDERSTAND” [Luke 8:10] He chose PARABLES and used common SYMBOLS, because the multitudes were dull of hearing and “BLINDED” by their teachers, “Therefore SPEAK I TO THEM IN PARABLES because they seeing SEE NOT; and hearing they HEAR NOT, neither do they understand” [Matthew 13:13 His PARABLES were the BREAD of LIFE, “ … profitable for DOCTRINE, for REPROOF, for CORRECTION, for INSTRUCTION in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” [2 Timothy 3:16-17] The MASK on your face is the PARABLE; a “REPROOF” to those who have not EARS and a WITNESS to those who have EARS,, “HE THAT HATH AN EAR, LET HIM HEAR WHAT the SPIRIT SAITH unto the churches; To him that OVERCOMETH will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God” [Revelation 2:7]

2. MASKS symbolize DECEIT, where the “… VOICE is JACOB’S VOICE, but the hands are the HANDS OF ESAU” [Genesis 27:22] Adam and Eve were well aware of Satan but were not prepared for the MASKED ONE. The MASK was the SERPENT, to conceal his identity and the rest is history [Genesis 3:1] Four thousand years down the line, the MASK was on Caesar Augustus, “And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a DECREE from CAESAR AUGUSTUS, that all the WORLD should be TAXED” [Luke 2:1] It was no coincidence the DECREE came while Mary was heavily pregnant with Jesus, and required everyone to be registered in his place of birth. The world was in commotion, many were DISTRACTED who waited in HOPE for the birth of Christ and most shocking, Jesus was born without the knowledge of the HIGH PRIEST! Those who had the BOOK were caught unawares, but not the WISE MEN, “Saying, Where is he that is born KING of the JEWS? for we have SEEN HIS STAR in the east, and are COME TO WORSHIP HIM” [Matthew 2:2] As we look forward to the appearance of Christ, the MASK is on the face of every man as WITNESS the DECEIVER is here, “For many DECEIVERS are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a DECEIVER and an ANTICHRIST” [2 John 1:7] The mandate of MASKS, LOCKDOWNS and VACCINES is the HAND of men, the VOICE is Satan calling to DISTRACT you from the imminent appearance of Christ.

3. A MARK is a SYMBOL of OWNERSHIP, IDENTITY or both. When Cain and Abel came of age, it was apparent they were not of one spirit, as it is written: “Not as Cain, WHO WAS OF THAT WICKED ONE, and slew his brother. …” [1 John 3:12] The certificate of his IDENTITY and OWNERSHIP was a MARK, “… the LORD set a MARK UPON CAIN, lest any finding him should kill him. …” [Genesis 4:15] Very much later, God found a friend in Abraham, made a covenant with him and branded him and his generations with the MARK of circumcision, "And ye shall CIRCUMCISE the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a TOKEN of the COVENANT betwixt me and you" (Genesis 17:11) God has a MARK for who belong to Him, joined to Him by FAITH in the WORD of TRUTH, “In whom ye also TRUSTED, after that ye heard the WORD OF TRUTH, the GOSPEL of your SALVATION: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were SEALED with that HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE” [Ephesians 1:13] There is also a MARK reserved for those who are of the WICKED ONE [Revelation 13:16-18] Regrettably, this generation focuses on the MARK of the BEAST than the SEAL of the Holy Ghost, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and MEN LOVED DARKNESS RATHER THAN LIGHT, BECAUSE THEIR DEED WERE EVIL” [John 3:19] This is the season of the MASK, many shall be DISTRACTED and DECEIVED; while they entangle themselves in needless controversy, the BRIDE shall be TRANSLATED, then and only then shall the MARK of the BEAST be enforced [Matthew 25:10]

4. PARABLE OF MASKS AND THE MARK is the story of a man blinded by the MASK on his face turning up his nose at another for taking the VACCINE on his shoulder, “DO NOT YE YET UNDERSTAND, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught? But those things WHICH PROCEED OUT OF THE MOUTH come forth from the HEART; and they DEFILE the man” [Matthew 15:17-18] COVID-19 is real, but the DECREE of MASK, LOCKDOWNS and VACCINES is not SCRIPTURE and cannot determine your ETERNAL RELEVANCE. This PARABLE is a WITNESS and a REBUKE to a Church DISTRACTED by “BODILY EXERCISE”, at a time God is “SEALING” His children with the Holy Ghost, “For BODILY EXERCISE PROFITETH LITTLE: but GODLINESS IS PROFITABLE UNTO ALL THINGS, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come” [1 Timothy 4:8] Let no man deceive you, God will MARK His BRIDE before the MARK of the BEAST is enforced. It is the MASKED ONE inflaming you with needless DEBATES and CONTENTIONS about MASKS, LOCKDOWNS and VACCINES, “WATCH ye therefore, and PRAY always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN” [Luke 21:36] Cease STRIVINGS, returns to Christ today and be SEALED with the MARK of the Holy Ghost, [Ezekiel 9:4]

5. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen

MANIFESTATION OF SONS OF GOD

1. A little over two thousand years ago, the world was gripped with fearful concern, “And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a DECREE from CAESAR Augustus, that all the WORLD SHOULD BE TAXED” [Luke 2:1] The world was in turmoil, but Joseph and Mary were not perturbed; they looked forward in HOPE to the BIRTH of Jesus. They went to be COUNTED and the MAN CHILD was born, who gave His LIFE to raise us as SONS in His own LIKENESS, “… in the unity of the FAITH, and of the KNOWLEDGE of the Son of God, unto a PERFECT MAN, unto the measure of the STATURE of the FULNESS OF CHRIST” [Ephesians 4:13] The “PERFECT MAN”, manifest in the STATURE and FULNESS OF CHRIST is the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle of PROPHETIC AGENDA. Two thousand years later, the world is in the throes of another DECREE of global instability; concomitant groanings in the Church are BIRTH PAINS of SONS OF GOD, “For the earnest EXPECTATION of the creature waiteth for the MANIFESTATION of the SONS OF GOD. … even we OURSELVES GROAN within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the REDEMPTION of our body” [Romans 8:19-23]

2. The world has waited long, “For the CREATURE WAS MADE SUBJECT TO VANITY, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in HOPE” [Romans 8:20] HOPE is turning to fulfilment, but not without resistance from the MASQUERADE in Luke 2:1, Satan. He was the unseen hand behind CAESAR and author of LOCKDOWNS, MASKS and VACCINES to DISTRACT you from witnessing the MANIFESTATION OF SONS OF GOD and the appearance of Christ, “For yourselves know perfectly that the DAY OF THE LORD COMETH AS A THIEF in the night” [1Thessalonians 5:2] Listen carefully, Priests in Jerusalem read the Scriptures every day, but missed the BIRTH of the MAN CHILD because they were fixated on CAESAR’S DECREE. You must not be unduly DISTRACTED by the DECREE of MASK and VACCINES, but be a WISE MAN, WATCHING with PRAYERS to be manifest in the LIKENESS of the SON OF GOD and be TRANSLATED at His appearance, “… with open face BEHOLDING AS IN A GLASS the GLORY of the Lord, are CHANGED INTO THE SAME IMAGE from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord” [2 Corinthians 3:18] Mary, heavily pregnant, refused to be DISTRACTED; she went ahead to be COUNTED because Jesus must be born in Bethlehem. Likewise, you must not be DISTRACTED, “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]

3. MANIFESTATION OF SONS OF GOD is by PREDESTINATION, “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be CONFORMED to the IMAGE OF HIS SON, that he might be the FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN” [Romans 8:29] When God promised to pour His SPIRIT in the LAST DAYS, He had His SONS in mind to prepare the way for the appearance of Christ, as it is written: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful DAY of the LORD: And he shall TURN the HEART of the FATHERS to the CHILDREN, and the HEART of the CHILDREN TO THEIR FATHERS, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse” [Malachi 4:5-6] John the Baptist and the Apostles turned the HEART of the “FATHERS” to the GOSPEL, the SONS OF GOD are at work restoring the “CHILDREN’ to the MANDATE of the Apostolic “FATHERS” by the TEACHING and POWER of the HOLY GHOST, as it is written: “And when HE IS COME, he will REPROVE the world of SIN, and of RIGHTEOUSNESS, and of JUDGMENT: Of SIN, because they BELIEVE NOT ON ME; Of RIGHTEOUSNESS, because I GO TO MY FATHER, and ye see me no more. Of JUDGMENT, because the PRINCE OF THIS WORLD IS JUDGED” [John 16:8-11] The LATTER RAIN is falling as appointed, the SONS OF GOD are here and the axe is laid to the root of SIN, “And now also the AXE IS LAID UNTO THE ROOT of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire” [Matthew 3:10]

4. SONS OF GOD are as BOLD as lions, “They shall run like MIGHTY MEN; they shall climb the wall like MEN OF WAR; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they SHALL NOT BREAK THEIR RANKS” [Joel 2:7] The Lord’s “MIGHTY MEN” are here, in every nation, telling the world how God was manifest in Jesus Christ to expose the root of SIN in DECEIT, “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH. This is a DECEIVER and an ANTICHRIST” [2 John 1:7] They are “MEN OF WAR” and the adversary is religious HYPOCRISY in those who set standards of RIGHTEOUSNESS in tithes, offerings and sundry earthly things, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” [Romans 10:3-4] SONS OF GOD are the VOICE of PROPHECY, as in the days of Noah, calling all men to REPENT and escape imminent JUDGMENT, “They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the FLOOD CAME and DESTROYED THEM ALL” [Luke 17:27] Let every man that has ear hear, “The LION HATH ROARED, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?” [Amos 3:8
