Performance art is the most powerful art form on earth. And it is particularly powerful when it has been written down and recorded on earth to then be sealed in the spirit realm. When a record has been sealed in the spirit realm, into the Kingdom of God, it becomes a legal document to testify of the workings of man. The spirit realm does watch, see, and understand, but God has appointed man to do the recording. For anyone who might not be familiar with the term “performance art”, it can be described as a person or people performing out an artwork or a concept. It is different than speaking in a parable. It is not a stationary “visual art” like a sculpture or a painting on canvas or even on the side of a building. And it is different from “performing arts”, which includes acting, singing, musical performances, theatre, and the many forms of dance. Performance art is lived out. It is without confinement of any sort other than that it happens with an intended purpose by the author. This post will discuss performance art operating in Scripture and in the present day.
Father, thank you for those who work in performance art. We ask for insight into the art form and may our understanding of it expand. May our eyes be open to Your labours that bring us performance art. Thank you Father, that You are not far off. May Your Holy Spirit breathe moist air into us and may we see as You see.
It is to Jesus, the Word of God, whom we run to, fly to, cling to, to find out more about performance art. May we run today in our hopes and in our spirits. May we see what He desires to show us. May we know His presence among us as we study, think, and drink of Him. Thank you, Father. May we learn to bless You, as You bless us continually (Psalm 115:18).
We begin with God to learn about performance art. Performance art with our Lord as the author and director, breathed on by the Almighty, El Shaddai, and performed by Jeremiah. There are others like Isaiah, Hosea, and Jonah with the gourd who also laboured in performance art. Ezekiel was another who was called often by the LORD to labour in the same manner. Below is an example of performance art.
1 Thus saith the LORD unto me, Go and get thee a linen girdle, and put it upon thy loins, and put it not in water. 2 So I got a girdle according to the word of the LORD, and put it on my loins. 3 And the word of the LORD came unto me the second time, saying, 4 Take the girdle that thou hast got, which is upon thy loins, and arise, go to Euphrates, and hide it there in a hole of the rock. 5 So I went, and hid it by Euphrates, as the LORD commanded me. 6 And it came to pass after many days, that the LORD said unto me, Arise, go to Euphrates, and take the girdle from thence, which I commanded thee to hide there. 7 Then I went to Euphrates, and digged, and took the girdle from the place where I had hid it: and, behold, the girdle was marred, it was profitable for nothing. 8 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 9 Thus saith the LORD, After this manner will I mar the pride of Judah, and the great pride of Jerusalem. 10 This evil people, which refuse to hear My words, which walk in the imagination [stubbornness, hardness] of their heart, and walk after other gods, to serve them, and to worship them, shall even be as this girdle, which is good for nothing. 11 For as the girdle cleaveth to the loins of a man, so have I caused to cleave unto Me the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah, saith the LORD; that they might be unto me for a people, and for a name, and for a praise, and for a glory: but they would not hear. (Jeremiah 13:1-11)
Linen refers to the righteous acts of God’s holy ones (The Revelation 19:8) that we are to wear as our flesh to cover our entire body (Exodus 25:1-8; 28:8,39-43; 39:2 are a few examples), and the girdle refers to our loins being girded with the truth (Ephesians 6:14). God’s people are to wear righteousness of truth. It is to be the covering for our loins, which is our power and our reproductive strength. Our loins are to be girded with linen of righteousness and truth that is cleansed in water. It is the water of the Holy Spirit that cleanses us from the dirt of the day, to purify our minds, and to be refreshed by His Word, which also gives us the ability to do righteous acts. There is no power in our loins without the Holy Spirit’s water of cleansing in the Lord’s righteousness.
5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and faithfulness the girdle of His reins. (Isaiah 11:5)
4 He riseth from supper, and laid aside His garments; and took a towel [linen cloth], and girded Himself. 5 After that He poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel [linen cloth] wherewith He was girded. (John 13:4-5)
7 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. 8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and
white [bright]: for the fine linen is the righteousness [righteous acts] of saints the holy. (The Revelation 19:7-8)
Jeremiah hid the uncleansed linen girdle in a hole of a rock by the Euphrates. Euphrates is a masculine noun that means “fruitfulness”, which comes from an unused root that means to “break forth”. We bring forth no eternal power or fruitfulness unless we are clothed in fine linen that is in the color of all of God’s truth and purified by His righteousness.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. (The Revelation 19:14)
The linen that was received at the time of salvation was untouched by the Holy Spirit’s water and Word, and then it was put in a hole of a rock by the Euphrates. This is a picture of what God’s people do by hiding in the Rock of God and refuse to be cleansed (purified). And if they refuse the washing of purification they will not be planted by the river where they must die first as seeds in the ground to then develop to become fruitful trees. They do not want to be planted by the River in the earth. They do not want to hear or see the water, even though it is near. They do not want to cross the Jordan where they learn to fight unto the Lord on white horses. They want to stay dirty and hang tight. And the more they stay hidden, in their own filth, in the Rock, their own air becomes suffocated. They do not see what is going on around them on earth or in the heavens. Oh, yes, they make it clear in their stench that they are saved and will go to heaven, because look, “I am in the hole of the Rock,” but they are also unprofitable. All that they were given has already been taken from them (Matthew 25:24-30).
5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. 7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. 8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:5-8)
Performance art is not just for us to witness and learn from, it is also used to document and register in the spirit realm legal justification for the righteous and just judgements of God.
19 & -1⁄19
The number 19 has a handful of meanings, just like all numbers do, and as we continue to grow in the Lord we find more and more depth to not just numbers and their meanings, but we also learn how God uses numbers for us to understand more of His ways. They openly display and define His concepts and messages. They can multiply or add and subtract with other numbers to further expand their meaning; and they can continue to further expand into formulas and equations. And it is by the Holy Spirit that we can understand His actions and see ourselves more clearly. However, we do not honour numbers as discussed in the heading of “What is happening now” January 28, 2020. “19” in its most basic form means the prolific producers of things that are released in the wind. A beautiful positive meaning of “19” can be seen from the above Jeremiah 13 passage with the Euphrates. The word Euphrates “Pĕrath” is found 19 times in Scripture. And as mentioned earlier, it means “fruitfulness” and comes from a root that means to “break forth” or “rushing”. It is the manifestation of evangelistic prolific production unto the Lord after a new prophetic sprout has been manifested by God’s Laodicean glory “a 17” by and in His grace; that then was diligently ruled by the apostolic ministry as it matures “in 18”, also by God’s grace; to ultimately produce abundant spiritual fruit by the evangelistic ministry “in 19”, which by the grace of God is where and how we expand from strength (army) to strength (army). So the glory of the manifested linen “17” that Jeremiah put in the rock was not diligently ruled and cared for “-18”, which then rendered it to be unprofitable “-19”. Euphrates “Pĕrath” means “sweet water” in Arabic. May we become prolific producers of many things that are pleasing to God that are released by and in the Holy Spirit Wind.
In addition to positive and negative 19’s, there is also a -1⁄19 that exhibits the release of great spiritual evil that is headed by the power and pride of the perverted evangelist’s ministry, the Amorite. The operation of -1⁄19 is found in II Timothy 3:1-5 below that lists the 19 manifestations that occur in man and a society to set up a life that appears to be godly but denies the Holy Spirit’s power of life. Recall that we are currently living in the time of the Holy Spirit’s manifestation on earth as described by the Three page folded pamphlet. The -1⁄19 is using all that we are given by God to remove God.
1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection [love], trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent [without power or dominion], fierce [brutal], despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. (II Timothy 3:1-5)
The number (-)19 is accomplished by the misuse (commissions) and omissions of the five ministries (Ephesians 4:11). And these are the first 10 manifestations listed in II Timothy 3:1-5 above. The first 5 manifestations of spiritual evil are lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, and blasphemers. These are the perversions of the five ministries under the influence of the Amorite, which is the perverted evangelist ministry. They are what occur and thrive when the “covering” of the Amorite is there to protect and defend the perversions of the ministries. These are commissions.
1) Lovers of their own selves is the manifestation when the pastoral ministry is perverted.
2) Covetous is how the apostolic ministry operates when it is perverted.
3) Boasters, empty pretenders, are what the perverted prophetic ministry becomes.
4) Proud, is how the evangelist operates when its ministry is perverted.
5) Blasphemers are what the perverted teaching ministry becomes.
The second 5 manifestations are disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without love (hard hearted), and truce breakers. These are omissions of the five ministries under the covering of the Amorite. When man omits, he withholds the operation of that ministry.
17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. (James 4:17)
6) Disobedient to parents is manifested when God’s teaching ministry is omitted. God given authority and order is not acknowledged.
7) Unthankful is when God’s evangelistic ministry is omitted. No thankfulness to God or others.
8) Unholy is when God’s apostolic ministry is omitted. God’s justice and judgements are not acknowledged or upheld.
9) Without love is when God’s pastoral ministry is omitted. God’s love for others is omitted and one becomes hard hearted.
10) Trucebreakers are what men become when God’s prophetic ministry is omitted. No desire to acknowledge or enter into covenants with man or God.
The commission of perverting a ministry (the first five) will result in the omission of the ministries (the second five) when all ten are driven by and are under the influence of the Amorite spirit. When one or more ministry have been influenced and taken over by the Amorite spirit, the easier it becomes for the others to follow suite. The relationship between commissions and omissions can also work apart from one another and in a variety of combinations or permutations. However, in this working of the Amorite (-)19, they hold to their pattern of perverting a specific ministry initially, like the prophetic, and then omitting God from that same ministry, the prophetic ministry. Eventually all ten operate in their fullest commissions and omissions until all five ministries (apostolic, prophetic, evangelist, pastor/teacher) are under the control and influence of the Amorite. To refresh: the five ministries are to equip, perfect, and edify us in the Lord Jesus Christ, which are available to us because of His descension and ascension (Ephesians 4:8-11).
The last 9 on the II Timothy 3 list are the manifestation of power on earth that results after the first 5 are perverted by commission and the second 5 of the same ministries are omitted. Before the last 9 characteristics are manifested a death occurs where the person, place, or entity can no longer be redeemed, nor do they have any desire to be redeemed. And this is when the manifestation of -1⁄19 appears. It is the negative reciprocal (the opposite and the inverse) of what happens when a person gives himself to God as their tithe. Instead of growing in their relationship with God to become a living sacrifice (Romans 12:1-2) in the power of the Holy Spirit, the person has been actively and passively rejecting all of Him. Their conscience is seared (I Timothy 4:1-5) and they then serve in Satan’s army until their physical death, which the Lord is fully aware of. They are given over and have removed all of God’s judgements from their eyes because they deny that there is One God, deny Jesus Christ as God, and blaspheme the Holy Spirit (Matthew 12:31-32, Mark 3:28-30).
The last 9 are the use of the power of the 9 spiritual gifts (I Corinthians 12:4-11) by the influence and protection of the Amorite. The gifts operate in the negative reciprocal of their design and purpose. And they come to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10) to then set themselves up in power, which is sustained by the corrupted pastor/teacher ministries.
11) False accusers are those who misuse the apostolic gift of the word of wisdom. These are the devil’s advocates who are the stealers.
12) Incontinent means to be without power or without dominion and is the nullification of the prophetic gift of prophecy. These are the killers.
13) Fierce, brutal is what the perverted evangelistic gifts of healing become. These are the destroyers.
14) Despisers of those who are good misuse the pastoral gift of tongues.
15) Traitors are those who operate in the negative reciprocal of the teacher’s discerning of spirits.
16) Heady, rash is how the teacher gift of faith is misused to sustain and operate in incorrect beliefs.
17) High-minded is how the teacher’s operation of the working of miracles is perverted. Ever learning and never coming to the knowledge of the truth (II Timothy 3:7).
18) Lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God is the negative reciprocal of the pastoral operation of the interpretation of tongues.
19) Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof is using wizardry without the word of knowledge to replace intimacy of knowing God.
The full list of the 19 characteristics do the negative reciprocal (the opposite and the inverse) of God’s intentions of His ministries and His gifts. So it is not a “19”, which is when God’s power is released in a prolific way of production for God’s purposes. Nor is it a “-19”, which occurs when the first 10 on the list of commissions and omissions of the ministries happen. A “-19” can be seen in II Kings 25:8-17 when all of the house of the LORD was burned down and the pillars of brass, the brazen sea, and all of the vessels used to minister were taken away. But when it becomes “-1⁄19”, that is when murdering and destroying of the ministries and service occur and the confiscation of all of the gifts and the power of the gifts are utilized to make and secure a kingdom under the Amorite rulers. It is not just the perversion of the ministries and taking away the ability to operate in them (-19), it in addition uses all of the power of the workings of those ministries to serve the Amorite (-1⁄19). An example would be, instead of operating in the true pastoral ministry, which includes the nurturing of a prophetic seed growing in others that are to grow separate from them, the pastors kill prophetic seeds in another person completely (the -) and then inversely the pastors nurture themselves to keep God’s people dependent on them (Ezekiel 34). This is relatively easy to do after convincing someone that there are very few gifts operating today other than “giving” or “hospitality”, and that no other ministries are operating other than becoming a pastor/priest/rabbi or the occasional evangelist. Another example would be using the ministry of prophecy to deem others powerless rather than to breathe power and life into them by His truth in the Holy Spirit (the -), and then at the same time inversely using that gifted power to strip a person’s identity by preventing them to speak words now or even prior to their salvation. In other words, keeping a person living in a vegetative state as though they had never been saved or knew Jesus as their Savior because they are taught to not trust the Voice that brought them to salvation in the first place (John 10:27-28). This is being forced to live under a chaperon even though a wedding has taken place.
The first 3 of the last 9 of the II Timothy 3:2-5 list, starting with the 11th, 12th, and 13th on the list, are the apostle, prophet, and the evangelist that are shifted and neutralized first. They are currently considered obsolete non-essential ministries that must be eliminated; however, their gifts, anointings, and endowments can be used by the Amorite to control people by falsely accusing, removing their right to live, and utilizing their power to become brutal. Once the five ministries are perverted (1st–5th) and then omitted (6th–10th of the list) then the apostolic anointings can be used to steal, and the prophetic anointings can be used to kill, and the evangelistic anointings are used to be brutal, destroy. Once the apostolic, prophetic, and evangelistic ministries are under Amorite power, the pastor/teacher ministries can move in and do their part in upholding the Amorite rule. Recall that the Amorite is the evangelistic ministry in its perversion. So its desire is for headship and to put itself in control in place of God.
After the first three ministries are bound and neutered, the next 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th, and 18th manifestations can take preeminence in their full perversions for serving under the Amorite. They are the pastoral gift of tongues with the 3 teaching gifts followed by the last pastoral gift of interpretation of tongues. So there is a tidy sandwich filled with evil teachings to prevent the ability to discern spirits, using the power of faith to convince people to embrace a belief system without thinking, and using the power of miracles to keep a perpetual thought process going that leads nowhere. Both of the slices of bread, or the bookends, that hold the evil teachings together are the pastoral tongues and the pastoral interpretation of tongues. The pastors are the controllers of the language and the interpretation of that language that can or cannot be used by the teachers who work inside the sandwich (system). There are no words that can be used unless approved and defined by the pastors who adhere to the agenda and guidelines of the Amorite rulers. Once everything is within a sandwich, the Amorite by the pastoral tongues and interpretation of tongues can dictate what goes into the sandwich. If you are outside of the sandwich, you are an “unfriendly”. It is by the power of the two pastoral bread pieces that keeps the separation of church and all other places. Where there is a church life for spiritual things and an outside, in the world, for all things not so spiritual. This is where the idea of doing things as “a necessary evil” gets introduced and where nothing really can be done about anything “out there” because after all, “that” is going on “out there”. It is for God to deal with evil, we do not. However, contrary to what their teaching promotes, our gifts in the Lord are to be exercised all of the time and in all aspects of our life, the life that is real, and the life where there is not a particular place that we act more righteous than in other places. We are either walking in the Lord or we are not.
The more that the pastoral ministry can control our communication about real things, like warfare, bondage, judgements, and growth, and refuse to move beyond the laying down of the same principles over and over again (Hebrews 6:1-2), the more robotic we become. And the church is filled with all members looking and acting the same, no matter what their spiritual growth is whether newborns or old men. All are taught not to deviate from the established lowest common denominational norm, except of course the visiting clergy who come to entertain now and then and seem to know how to talk a little bit differently, yet still say the same thing. Anything that does not look and act like the determined modus operandi is marked with disdain and is not tolerated. Everyone must smile just the right amount, look concerned just the right amount, and care about the same things they are told to care about. No hair can be tousled in the wind; no hop, skip, and a jump are allowed.
If there are people who are not part of the recognized system or its leadership, then those people have to wear face idols all of the time and SHUT UP, as they will not be allowed to contaminate those who obey the Amorite system. We do not want to hear them or see their mouths speak. And if they do talk, their voices will be muffled by our mandatory pastoral tongue idol. In addition, they will be locked down. They are not free to just act like they are a part of the flock of God. They are outsiders and if they act up in any way like they are doing something in the Lord, we will enforce our laws and put them in prison in addition to giving heavy fines for not having a recognized “expert” degree certified and vetted by the SES and/or the governor and the Baptist Convention. In fact, we will call those people unloving because they do not follow the love of our water boy Jesus. HEY! Stay Home and Save a Life! We implement the Safer at Home order because not just anyone who has accepted Jesus should be allowed to talk about Jesus or God; they could really mess somebody’s life up without the proper credentials. False doctrines must be tested by our reliable test kits coming out soon where we can deliberately infect anyone with our doctrine who tries to pass another kind of doctrine other than our own man-made doctrine. Yes, those false doctrines like common sense could bring about a type of thinking that a person could never recover from.
Anything that a person says or does that alludes to code words like judgement, war, or talking negatively about our beloved pastors or agenda will be monitored to make sure they stay within NIH guidelines. The apostle, prophet, and evangelist ministries are deemed non-essential and must stay at home. But we will allow one or two obedient evangelists out every once in a while to let people know what we believe an evangelist looks and acts like. You know, the kind who keep track of your name and number and make sure you get into the correct fold after you accept Jesus. We want to make sure your insurance matches with the kind of care that we think you need to sustain spiritual activity at just the right temperature; lukewarm has been found to be the most efficient for controlling any foreign ideas like growing to produce fruit. Yes, we are “your provider” for abortions at any stage of development. The Bible calls it passing our children through fire (II Kings 16:30), but we call it nowadays making sure that people do not operate in any gifts that they may think they have other than “giving” to us as their leaders and serving in hospitality to keep the parking lot clean. Yes, we like those new born-again fresh ones to harvest all their parts unto us. And we really like how our pastoral propaganda tongues and interpretation of tongues have been so effective that God’s people think that the stuff that happened in the Bible before Jesus came cannot possibly apply to life now. It keeps the Chinese wall up so that nobody connects the dots between the “language”, tongue change. Yep, we are open 24/7 always. We gag and then tie those eager hands and feet up right away. They’re novices and that gives us the right to hold onto their non-essential bicycles or to at least make sure they have disposed of them properly. We also like to make sure everyone is on the leanest protein free diet that is available, soy works and those GMO’s are the preferred. We are unable to provide meat at this time. What’s that? You said you saw us killing the highest quality of living meat at the stockyard? Sorry, you are mistaken. What you saw was the delicate balance of supply and demand. Anyway, back to the real point, we just wait to steal from our fellow Christians if it looks like they come up with something that will taste interesting or be useful to us about the Bible. Yes, we really like those people who seem to know where each book of the Bible is and can turn right to them. That is proof without any shadow of a doubt that they “know stuff”.
Yes, we can steal all of their creative patents by using those clever apostolic anointings to make new and binding legislation, and hand them right over to the crown; they then become weaponized by us and we are all set to cash in. And we can make up new laws and rules where we can lie, but everyone else can be called a liar if we choose. And we will shame our prophets with mirrors to show them how uncomely and displeasing they are to man, and record their words in our books to later pick apart and take out of context to prove that they are mad. We will tell them that they are unnecessary and burdensome and only confuse us. And that they bring us death rather than peace. We will take their power to breathe God’s life by killing them so that no one can prosper except for us. And we will break the spirit of anyone who has a righteous evangelistic anointing and hobble them with our special injections and chain them and parade them around for our circuses. We will have fun poking them after we have caged them and put rings in their noses so that we can control any male energy that is left in them. Yes, we are all about the numbers, all about keeping things in our control to steal, kill, and destroy. “Wish It Was True” by The White Buffalo, from his 2012 “Once Upon a Time in the West” album https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-8eHYpLzok.
Once abortions of eternal calls of the flock have been systematically completed and when personal fellowship with God is downplayed unless it is chaperoned, then the next step is to keep everyone comatose and in as much of a subdued state as possible while waiting for Jesus to come to make everything right again. The dismissal and denial of the Holy Spirit’s manifestation on earth then takes hold. Oh, it is fine for the more charismatic believers to have lively heightened times, just so the activities are approved and kept under the supervisory eyes of the board members. They kind of had to let things be a little more relaxed in order to not lose too many infertile sheep to other pastors/pastures. But the way to keep the flock inactive “out there” in the world and under submission to the Amorite within the church “in here” is to keep everyone on an extreme diet, never satisfied, never being filled, yet upholding the unhealthy doctrines with the perverted use of faith by the teaching ministry that tells us that food has to come from the pastors and teachers who are approved by them, as though we do not have the Holy Spirit operating in our lives. The food that is served is the mandatory fast food with spiritual appetite suppressors to keep everyone drunk, sedated, or in a spiritually dark fog. That way when something of substance does come their way, their bodies will reject it as being “foreign”. Anything can work, just so that it prevents people sitting down at a restaurant being filled by the Holy Spirit in a way that lasts long-term and into eternity. Hey, if I cannot be that way, you certainly cannot (Luke 11:52).
When we are out of the bondage of the distorted pastoral sandwich’s teachings we see things as they are more clearly, with those around us growing and changing. Some of us have braces to straighten out our teacher teeth skills. Some are balding so that they can witness to others of the spirit of Korah, the good Korah as seen in Breakaway. Some are running around with their flippers on because they are learning to deep sea fish in the Lord, or others have zippers sewn on skewed while they are learning to tailor garments for themselves and then for others. This is life, as God intended it to be lived, and it is how we grow and develop in Him. Each of us at our own pace. Each of us with our own set of different combinations of gifts, skills, anointings, and inclinations. Let us torpedo out of the death grip of the corrupted church not allowing ourselves and God’s people to grow and to look as we do when we grow, which our Father and loving brethren do not cringe at when they see us look awkward in our new pair of high heels or have a handful of shaving nicks on our face. And they will not be ashamed of us, or for us, when we have lost an arm in battle; or despise the blood of the battlefield that seemed in vain; or to be embarrassed for those who are willing to stick their neck out and go against the pack because they look too emotional or uncontained. It is the corrupt religious systems that have conditioned man with messages and special reports on how to live on earth according to their will. To live in an unnatural way that reveals us to be only performance art hypocrites, which teaches us that our only assurance is heaven after salvation and nothing more. We are not supposed to know where we stand with God beyond that — it is too vague and way too complicated and for the “experts” to ponder. May we stop listening and watching the news and reports of what corrupt pastors and teachers have promoted of what “good”, well behaved Christians look and act like. May we stop listening to them talk and talk about what we are to tolerate and not tolerate in the name of what their self-love looks like.
The final, 19th, characteristic of Amorite control is having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof. The 19th is the manifestation of the negative reciprocal (opposite inverse) of the word of knowledge. The word of knowledge is an operation of the Philadelphian and Laodicean candlesticks lit by the Holy Spirit. The seeing in the spirit realm and then reporting that there is a disease on your left upper arm that God is healing right now is using the gift as a wizard (Deuteronomy 18:11), which is used by corrupt religions as bait. It is stirring the water for those few who can make it there just in the nick of time (John 5:4) or for the last few minutes of the broadcast, despite Jesus and the Holy Spirit already being in our midst. This is using part of some of the gifts for temporal financial, emotional, or physical healings and is used for dispensing Balaam Band-Aids (Jude verse 11) without doing the internal heart work of the prophet, apostle, and evangelist for eternal purposes unto the Lord. God does not tease, nor should we. The word of knowledge is a gift of knowing the ways of God (Psalm 103:7, Romans 11:33-34).
33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out! 34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been His counsellor? (Romans 11:33-34)
It is knowing with understanding by and through the judgement, logos word, eyes of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. So to have a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof is to deny the power of the Holy Spirit, and then putting on the form of the way a person incorrectly views Jesus as being. It is living as though everything that Jesus had done on earth to bring the manifestation of the Holy Spirit into our lives is not applicable. But if there is any power or value that is at our access, we can certainly use it how we want to. These do not have the knowledge of resting on the chest of Jesus, where a person can look at things and understand in the same perspective that Jesus does. The gifts, the ministries, the performance art, the commandments, the statutes, and so on are not just things we end up “knowing about” with head knowledge in words, rather they are having the Word, Jesus Christ the Lord, knowledge.
In order to operate in a form of godliness but to deny the power thereof, the Amorite is able to consolidate, package, and enforce all of the other 19 on the list. And once all 19 of the list are operating, the Amorite is in power in the form of -1⁄19. Notice that the 19 are all “under” the submission of “1” to negatively control and dominate. They appear to be “above” the law, but they actually control and make “the law” for others to live by. The “1’s” live and function how they want to because they are over everyone else, like playing golf when they implemented for everyone else to be in household imprisonment. Like eating the best food of the sacrifices while not feeding those who brought the sacrifice (I Samuel 2:12-17). Like how all evil government systems work.
The current performance art
Man on earth is currently carrying out a performance art in a grand production. And it is documented by man and submitted into the Kingdom of God for what it is and what it means. It is sickening to see and sickening to write. The performers have been ordained in their assigned places and all have been dutiful to carry out their part. God has given us this performance art to display to the earth and the heavens what His people look like and act like while serving the evil Babylonian system under the submission of the Amorite spirit that has been aborting spiritual calls, preventing the operations of the ministries and gifts given to man by Jesus Christ, and the harvesting of spiritual substance for their own uses to steal, kill, and destroy. May we see and be sober.
Recall, discussed in Faith neutral production, that what is manifested on earth has already been manifested in the spirit realm, which is how the doors are legally opened to become fully expressed on earth. This holds true not just for evil, but it is also how God’s people are to work in the spirit realm to conquer unto the Lord. Warfare always begins in the heart of man. What we see happening is unnatural and void of common sense and God’s people are acting and saying things that continue to be void of understanding. Some say that what is happening is because we have become a nation that aborts babies and that we have become decadent and immoral. And others resort to the wilderness wanderers' favorite II Chronicles 7:14 passage to “use this time” to reflect and humble ourselves before God to hope and pray for things to be restored enough to get our lives back to “normal” and promise to God that we will try our best to do better next time. Others talk about reptilian evil beings that have penetrated into man and descended from the cosmos to bring extra, extra evil that has not been seen on earth before. And others talk about man being connected with satanic forces to become super evil beings that are the enemy of all life and God. But hold on. For those who see in the spirit realm and do see these evil demonic beings, we can and do testify that they have been operating for a very long time in the events of men. Their favorite place of operation has always been among the people who believe in Jesus Christ the Lord, to resist the people of God, and to destroy the people of God. No, what is happening is what has been happening in the spirit realm that is now being shown to us in a very tangible and graphic way. Most will not see, most will not understand, most will not believe (John 12:37-41) that the loss of an eternal call is more significant to God than our physical death. Most will not understand that for God’s people to be starving of spiritual food is more significant to Him than physically being starved and having food purposely withheld.
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell [Gehenna]. (Matthew 10:28)
[Gehenna is where eternal calls perish (Matthew 5:29-30). It is different than Sheol.]
God is currently revealing to us what we look like and act like to Him and to the hosts of heaven while we have been submitted to Amorite control, the Amorite systems, that we have put into power and position as our god to replace God, which is upheld by the perverted pastoral/teaching ministries. These systems started early on after Jesus had ascended and the Holy Spirit descended. They happened because of the refusal to move on to “For ever” and have sprouted doctrines that have tried to skip over, dismiss, or forcibly subdue the manifestation of the Holy Spirit and our individual responsibility to operate in what the Lord has given to us. These doctrines have allowed for the total revamp and redefining of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. And have progressed until what we have today: an impotent, starved, sickly, and insane people who call themselves “Christian”, who abort their own and others’ eternal calls in the Lord and try to prevent personal fellowship with the Saviour.
The early stages of the Amorite control over God’s people started with a subtle desire to stand out among the rest of His flock. Paul warned against it. And it is the first characteristic of the 19 manifestations listed in II Timothy 3:2 above: lovers of their own selves, which is the manifestation when the pastoral ministry is perverted. It is a beginning that establishes a different belief system that has created all of the other “love” for the pastors and eventually “love for my pastor.” Setting pastors over us as a tier between us and God leads to the pastors no longer serving and feeding the sheep as the Lord expects them to (Ezekiel 34), but instead the people end up serving the pastors rather than God. We see that this is what has happened with governments also in all of the supposed free nations on earth.
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. (Matthew 22:37-40)
To be “lovers of our own selves” is to give echoing love back to ourselves rather than echo back God’s beckoning call. We start to like our own voice rather than God’s. We can specify not only how that voice sounds, but the content of what our own voice says. We start to change God’s Words and His sound, a little bit here, and a little bit there, until we hear our own words and our own voice and our own doctrine that we love from ourselves. We then become lovers and doters over those who echo back our own beliefs to us. We cannot increase in God’s love more and more, and we do not go from God’s glory to glory, and forget about diligent rulership or fruit bearing for ourselves and others. What it means to be like-minded (Romans 15:5, Philippians 2:2, II Timothy 4:3) is not to gather with like-minded people, it is to be like-minded to, with, and in Jesus Christ.
Paul warned how this gets started in I Corinthian 3:1-9. Man starts raising up their particular pastor that they are fond of. Then they start packing and forming into denominations. Then they start bickering about “milk” concepts. Then they start fighting and defending “their” pastor or denomination by comparing and contrasting this little thing and that little difference because by then no one is eating meat and all have stopped growing individually in The Church. The One Church that is founded on Jesus Christ.
1 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. 2 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. 3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions [factions], are ye not carnal, and walk as men? 4 For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal? 5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 8 Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. 9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry [field], ye are God's building. (I Corinthians 3:1-9)
The first 10 on the II Timothy 3 list work their way down until they have been manifested and satiated to provide a comfortable bed for the last 9 to operate on. The Amorite few then utilize the power of the gifts of the Spirit (I Corinthians 12:4-10) found in themselves and others for destruction and control.
The virus is the star of the performance art that we are currently participating in or observing. It goes by its openly mocking labeled name of the “Crown” and number “19” so that we are not in doubt about what we are seeing, which is the II Timothy 3:1-5 list working in harmony under an Amorite headship. It has been orchestrated by the same group of people just as the “terror” attack on September 11, 2001, or the carrying out of a mass shooting in Las Vegas on October 9, 2017, and on and on to divert attention to what evil men are really doing. Propaganda and persuasion to bring about greater surveillance and bondage can and has been carried about in a variety of forms. The virus happens to be what is focused on now because the goal it to control all of man’s health resources and medical care in the wealthier countries and to murder vast numbers in the third world by starvation. We will talk about viruses in this post since it is the specific desired tool that the enemy is using now as their poster child for propaganda. And may we turn what men purposed for evil to bring about great good in the Lord. And may many no longer be in this type of spiritual bondage. We pray in and by the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. May God’s people shine more and more.
Viruses can be seen in the spirit realm; they are fairly small, appear to float, yet move in specific directions towards whom and what they can go into. They are lower level functioning spirits, which is why they have the usual 14 day cycle fight against our body until our body, by the Holy Spirit, rejects that particular virus. We have authority to command them to leave from our presence, and they are easier to get rid of before they enter the cavities of our body. So the virus by itself is a picture of how demonic activity works in and around us. Many times it is dealt with without us really knowing the details because we are simply “resisting the devil and he will flee.”
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. (James 4:7)
When our body has been cared for by the pastoral ministry, the teaching ministry within our body by God’s grace teaches the body to fight against and get rid of viruses, and it does. The body becomes stronger as it fights more and more viruses. And this is good and of the Lord.
The virus is a tool currently used to maintain a bondage that represents the plague of boils. Bondages follow a very specific order under spiritual legally binding operations. Each plague, bondage has different operations and components, perversions, that make them up. But all require an internal and external component for them to keep a people or a person in that bondage. When the internal component is removed, then the external component has nothing to hang onto that can spiritually legally allow it to be there any longer. The specific bondage of boils involves the Girgashite and Jebusite spirits, which then produce inflamed pustules that are infected, break open, and never heal. Remember Job had boils also (Job 2:7) and is a picture of a spiritual bondage that he had because of incorrect and undeveloped thinking about himself and God.
To have a bondage of boils would be when a person has a belief that is not correct that then is sustained by the external pressure that confirms that incorrect belief. It could be pretty much anything and would have been taught to us by the perverted teacher. To understand this, we will see how it is taking place by the virus “19” poster child.
The virus, a demonic small force, has been bound together with a Jebusite demonic “infection” that is more complicated than a virus. The virus and the perpetual infection work together to form a Girgashite/Jebusite bondage and are the boils that broke out in pustules in Exodus 9:8-12. Boils depict the bondage of the Jebusite spirit and the Girgashite spirit working together. So the current “19” phenomenon has created the bondage of a societal boil bacterial infection of the Jebusite spirit (perverted apostolic ministry) bound together with the teaching of “fear” by the Girgashite spirit (perverted teacher ministry) of a virus. Keep in mind that it is teaching a “fear” of the virus, which our bodies normally combat without us needing to do any intervention other than to have good pastoral care of our body, which the body then learns to abound and increase in its memory bank the mechanisms to fight viruses.
8 And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. 9 And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains [pustules] upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt. 10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast. 11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians. 12 And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses. (Exodus 9:8-12)
If we have an incorrect internal thought or thinking and then it is exposed to us as being incorrect by God’s Light, we can reject that thinking as wrong in the name and power of Jesus Christ. We know we are in bondage to the incorrect, usually embedded, teaching if when we try to reject it we immediately get snapped or whipped by the Jebusite spirit externally. The external spirit must then be rebuked to be removed from our presence and our house in the name of Jesus Christ. In the case of the Jebusite, they will become the devil’s advocate, the false accusers, who bring proof to defend their right to be present and keep us in their control by declaring that the incorrect belief, like the virus is super dangerous, and we will prove it to you by implementing stiff penalties in your life if you do not adhere to our new rules. The Jebusite component of the bondage will not leave until the internal spirit is broken off first, by faith. This does not mean if we “declare it to be gone by faith” it leaves; it means that your faith, by the Holy Spirit, has persuaded you that the “fear” is incorrect. And that faith has been worked in you to understand that that spirit is lying to you and that you reject its teaching and demand it to leave from your presence. The loop of bondage is broken at that point, but not fully removed until the external component is also removed. This may seem like a relatively clean-cut operation, but when it is carried out there will be a fight. The external spirit will be allowed by God to try us again in the same area. This is not too fun, but it is the way we can see it clearly and a way to know when we are actually free from it or not. The trying to reestablish the bondage will likely be constant at first, yet will become further and further apart until that spirit has absolutely no authority to try us any longer. God does not want to just free us from the bondage so that we can move about easier in the temporal. He wants us to have authority over the bondages so that we can free our brethren for those who desire it.
The way the boil bondage is carried out with the virus “19” is teaching us to have internal fear of it (the Girgashite part), then externally threatening or implementing jail or fines (the Jebusite part) if we do not believe or act like we are afraid of it. For those who are jailed or fined, may they be given the power of the Lord Jesus Christ to bring great curses upon their captors. And when they are released, may they prosper not only in this life but in the next. The power of bondages is to bring fear to us that if we break from them our life will become at risk and that we will be rejected or harmed by others. This may be true, but we do not serve evil men, we serve God (Matthew 10:28). Bondages of the corrupt pastoral church involve things like guilt, shame, peer pressure, conformity, and breeding insecurity or self-righteousness. And when we are in these bondages, we start to stink and carry infections in us that can spread to others, even though it started and maintains itself within a person as just a small thing like a virus that could have been dealt with quickly with just an adjustment here and there in our thinking or understanding. It is good to ask God to reveal to us if we are in a bondage; and then ask for Him to show us how to break it from off of us. He is faithful to answer these prayers and He will explain it to us, by the Holy Spirit, in a way that we can understand.
When we look back to the Exodus 9:8-12 passage above, we see that Moses and Aaron were instructed by God to take handfuls of ashes of the furnace and “sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh” in Exodus 9:8. Let us follow this war guide today. Let us take out the ashes of the furnace that are the burned up and snared eternal calls of our brethren. And let us throw them toward heaven in the presence of our enemies, which are God’s enemies (Palms 92:9, Isaiah 1:24-31). Let us gather all of the ashes of the bodies that have been starved to death and bury our enemies under the weight of them. And may those ashes turn into boils that will not be healed on them or their beasts. Amen and Amen.
Everything that the small group of globalist leaders is currently carrying out has been done to God’s people by faux spiritual leaders that have been upheld by their faithful pastors and teachers. The now empty heavily controlled hospitals speak of God’s people having had scant eternal spiritual healing by the evangelistic ministry. And the schools closing so that 5G can be installed speaks of Biblical teaching that has stopped and was replaced by deadly oxygen depriving thought processes that kill us from within. Making up a weird 6 ft. social distancing is a performance art of showing how we do not congregate in the Spirit realm for others in warfare, prayer, and intercessory labours. The taxes being paid by the working man for this to happen against ourselves is offering our spiritual resources to evil temporal promotion rather than investing in the eternal. And the tragically forced starvation by purposely preventing the distribution of food is the starvation of God’s people to insure that no one grows and matures in Him.
What it looks like in the spirit realm when God’s people have handed over their spiritual resources, abundance, and gifts to the Amorite is as follows: It looks like a huge dark waterfall that has been gathered together as a dense cloud that moves across the sky and then stops. It continues to flow as it funnels onto and into the Amorite camp. The flow is abundant.
Remember the uncleansed linen that no longer was worn but instead was hid in a hole of the rock in Jeremiah 13:4? The word for “rock” that was used in Jeremiah 13:4 is the masculine noun “cela`” that means “rock” and comes from an unused root word that means “lofty”. It is used below in II Samuel 22:2 as being a fortress and a deliverer; and is translated as “is my rock.” But then there is another “rock” that follows in verse 3, and this “rock” is the masculine noun “tsuwr” that comes from the verb “tsuwr”, spelled the same as its noun form and means to besiege, straiten, to press upon, to compress, to form. This noun form of “tsuwr” rock is the word used in verse 3 below and is translated as “of my rock.”
1 And David spake unto the LORD the words of this song in the day that the LORD had delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, and out of the hand of Saul: 2 And he said, The LORD is my rock [cela`], and my fortress, and my deliverer; 3 The God ['elohiym] of my rock [tsuwr]; in Him will I trust: He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. (II Samuel 22:1-3)
The “tsuwr” rock describes a further expansion beyond the “cela`” rock. We first go to the “cela`” rock to be our fortress and our deliverer. We are “captured” by Him and escape from the enemy. We are now in His net (fortress) and He has delivered us from our enemy (death and sin). David moves us further to look into to the “tsuwr” rock where we learn to trust and put our hope in the LORD, where He becomes our shield, where He is our shining power and safety, our lofty place of sight, our place of refuge, our help, and to save us from violence. These things we need because we move on from being saved from eternal death to become warriors on earth. Those who do not grow in God, Elohim ('elohiym) verse 3 above, do not know the “tsuwr” rock because they want to keep God afar off and as personally distant as possible, yet always declaring that they are in the “cela`” rock that saved them. When we know Elohim, we learn how to live on earth as men unto the Lord with the Holy Spirit working in us as Jesus lived. We mature by being straitened, pressed, and formed "of" my rock beyond knowing and declaring that He "is my" rock. Elohim ('elohiym) means “gods”. And this is what Jesus meant when He talked about us being gods: “Ye are gods; and all of you are sons of the Most High” Psalm 82:6, also found in John 10:34-38. This also explains God judging the gods in Psalm in 82:1.
1 God ['elohiym] standeth in the congregation of the mighty; He judgeth among the gods ['elohiym]. (Psalm 82:1)
Both of the words in Psalm 82:1 translated as “God” and “gods” are the same word “'elohiym” and both are in the plural form. It is used the same way for “gods” below.
6 I have said, Ye are gods ['elohiym]; and all of you are
children sons of the most High. (Psalm 82:6)
Let us be very practical about this. Either God means what He speaks or He does not. How could we be expected to live unto God, and live and breathe in Him if we do not possess what He has and what He is? Jesus lived as a man for this very purpose to say, “May your eyes see, this is what it looks like to be god “'elohiym” living in the flesh because, well, I am God.” But man’s thoughts about being a god go right into ideas about lording ourselves above others or thinking of ourselves “better” than others. It is what the corrupted church thinks about being a god. Let us not be intimidated by those who shudder and quiver that we would even talk about this? It is unnatural for them to think about others as being gods, or as one who partakes in the fellowship of Christ’s suffering, or as going out to battle to conquer unto the Lord. To them, it is taking this whole Christian thing way too far. Because if we follow the same thought process we can see that it means we are expected to judge also (Psalm 82:1 above). No, no, no. Who do you think you are?? A Christian? No, “christian” means love and snuggles and sugar and spice and… hold it, wrong rhyme. May we all gently and calmly go back to our “cela`” rock, excuse me, seats.
Recall that “cela`” rock comes from an unused root word that means “lofty”. When we just stay in the “cela`” rock we become “lofty”. We needed to be lifted up to God and raised from death to eternal life. But if we are still alive physically, we then need to operate as a god, who has been saved out of death, and to live in the Holy Spirit life in the fullness of Jesus Christ the Lord. If we stay in our “lofty” place in the flesh and do not grow, we become lofty, high-minded, sterile thinkers about God, life, and our labours. Let us not be ashamed of His provisions for us, because it is the only way we could humanly fulfill our labours in becoming a living sacrifice, which is our reasonable service.
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (Romans 12:1)
When we think about a rock we cannot help but think about the rock that brought forth the water for the children of Israel.
5 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock [tsuwr] in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock [tsuwr], and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not? (Exodus 17:5-7)
All who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior have drunk from the “tsuwr” rock (Exodus 17:6 above). The opportunity is given to us to participate fully in the Lord as He offers to us Himself as the “tsuwr” Rock. In salvation, we are given the spiritual Water and the spiritual manna packed ready to go. We are given complete provision for all that is ahead to grow in Him. The time came for Israel to be exercised, when they needed to develop and trust God beyond salvation. And it is our Father’s right to search our hearts and try our thoughts (II Chronicles 32:31, Psalm 26:2, Psalm 139:23-24, Jeremiah 17:10) to find weak areas or misconceptions. But they said “no” to one thing after another about living and developing in His “tsuwr” Rock, the Rock that they had already tasted and drunk from. And as they continued on, the time came when they needed to drink of Him again to be filled by Him. But they were only given the reassurance of their salvation to drink, which is what they expected and wanted from God: safety and lofty thoughts about having their ticket to get into heaven. This was the time Moses smote the rock twice when he was instructed to only speak to the rock in Numbers 20:11.
Moses was instructed to “speak ye unto the rock” but instead he smote it (Numbers 20:7-11). Yes, He was instructed earlier as we saw above in Exodus 17:6 to smite the “tsuwr” rock. And that was the picture of Christ dying once to bring all of the “tsuwr” rock that God is to us to grow and develop in the fullness of Him. The picture of smiting the rock again in Numbers 20 is crucifying Jesus Christ afresh (Hebrews 6:6), but let us look further into what happened and with what instrument Jesus was smitten with. Moses smote the rock with the rod. This “children’s” Bible story of Moses smiting the rock usually focuses on Moses smiting the rock, leaving an assumption that God just had to make the rock flow of water because??… let’s see, to “save face” for Moses? Or to let us know that God had his back? Or because they needed to have water, and so He gave them the water even though Moses disobeyed Him? It leaves the door open for the false grace teaching that despite Moses or ourselves we are given what we need because God just has to work around us when we are disobedient. No, God did not take action. God did not make the rock produce the water. The water was already in the rock.
The releasing of the water came from Moses using “the rod”, the same rod that contained the power of the Holy Spirit. It started as a rod that Moses already had in his possession that turned into a serpent when God instructed him to cast it to the ground (Exodus 4:1-5) after God told him that he would be delivering His people. God was addressing the concern that Moses had about how the people would not believe him or “hearken unto his voice.” After picking up the serpent by the tail, the serpent became the rod again. God then told Moses to put his hand into his bosom and when he brought it out the hand was leprous; and after God instructed him to put the leprous hand back into his bosom and take it out again, the flesh on his hand was normal (Exodus 4:6-7). The rod was then called the “rod of God” that Moses took in his hand (Exodus 4:17,20). The rod of God was to be used in the hand of Moses. The rod was used from there on out to do signs and to produce some of the plagues to bring salvation and release God's people from the grip of Pharaoh (Exodus 7; 8; 9). God instructed him to lift up the rod and stretch out his hand over the sea to divide the water (Exodus 14:16). And Moses used his hand to accomplish and carry out the other plagues and “he stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong wind” so that the land would be dry for the people to walk over after the water was divided (Exodus 14:21). His stretched out hand was also used at the instruction of the LORD for the waters to return again that destroyed Pharaoh’s army (Exodus 14:26-28). The use of the rod and God working through Moses’ hand is a picture of how we are to labour in the power and gifts of the Holy Spirit and how we are to labour in the hand (ministries) given to us by God. We can see this exemplified throughout Scripture. So when Moses smote the rock twice in Numbers 20:8-11, he was using the power of the Holy Spirit the way he chose to use it (the first hit), and the second hit was to deny the work of God by and through his “hand” (the five ministries), which is why Moses was instructed to speak to the rock. Moses decided to use the power of the Holy Spirit, the power laden rod, and he also withheld himself from using his own voice to operate in the ministry of his call. He did not act like god “'elohiym”, even though all of God was given to him and it was time for him to do so.
After the twice smitten “cela`” rock produced temporal water to relieve physical thirst, we hear from God in Numbers 20:12. Notice that Moses also lifted up his hand, verse 11, which speaks of Him misusing the five ministries while using the power of the Holy Spirit. So he misused the power of the Holy Spirit (the rod was to be used this time to gather and assemble the people), misused the ministries (by lifting up his hand), and then withheld the correct ministry (did not speak to the rock).
6 And Moses and Aaron went from the presence of the assembly unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and they fell upon their faces: and the glory of the LORD appeared unto them. 7 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 8 Take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak [dabar] ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth His water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock [cela`]: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink. 9 And Moses took the rod from before the LORD, as he commanded him. 10 And Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock [cela`], and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock [cela`]? 11 And Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock [cela`] twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also. 12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed Me not, to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them. 13 This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and He was sanctified in them. (Numbers 20:6-13)
It was time for Moses and Aaron to be gods “'elohiym”, rather than to use or withhold God’s power, gifts, and ministries as a man. The way we know this, is not only because God had given them instructions beforehand to do things differently to shift them to exercise and labour differently, but He also gave them the ability to do it. We see this just before the instructions were given by God in Numbers 20:8. Moses and Aaron came into the door of the tabernacle to seek help after the people were chiding again and were coming up in opposition against them (Numbers 20:1-5). When Moses and Aaron went into the door of the tabernacle they were exposed to God’s Laodicean glory (Numbers 20:6), which had brought them into another place of glory. They went from glory to glory. And now they were required to apostolically rule by speaking in a more developed way by operating at the same level of glory that was imparted to them. They were imparted to manifest glory and the power of God by their voice. They chose instead to use the power of the Holy Spirit in the manner that they chose; and use the glory unto themselves by speaking in a high-minded and lofty fashion that they were the ones that must fetch the water from the rock.
When we speak in the glory and in the power of God, He is sanctified (shown as holy) in the eyes of our fellow believers. We want this so that others can participate and be drawn to what we are drawn to, which is the fellowship of labouring in Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit. God becomes sanctified in our eyes when others work according to His will and purpose. God is sanctified when we operate as gods ['elohiym].
God was sanctified, showed Himself holy, in Numbers 20:13. But it was not because the rock produced water; it was because Moses and Aaron were judged accordingly to their actions. This is why and how the LORD was sanctified, showed Himself holy, among the children of Israel even though it was God's desire for Moses and Aaron to sanctify, show God holy, among the people as seen in Numbers 20:12 below. This privilege was given to Moses and Aaron to do, but they did not believe God.
12 And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed Me not, to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them. 13 This is the water of Meribah [strife]; because the children of Israel strove with the LORD, and He was sanctified in [among] them. (Numbers 20:12-13)
The word for rock “cela`” that is used in Jeremiah 13:4 where Jeremiah hid the linen loin cloth is the same word used for the rock in Numbers 20:8-11. It is the “cela`” rock that Moses smote twice that gave the temporal relief from thirst and the reassurance of eternal salvation.
Toilet paper run
Jeremiah, in the performance art of Jeremiah 13:1-11, was ungirded altogether once he put his unwashed linen in the rock. This reveals that he would then be unable to serve in the inner courts as sons of Zadok, who minister to the Lord in His sanctuary (Ezekiel 44:15-16). Zadok means “just”, which comes from the verb “tsadaq” that means to be bright, straight and is often translated as “justify” and “righteous”. “Tsadaq” is an interesting word because it is used in relation to being “more righteous” or being “more justified” and also as “clearing” or “cleansing” ourselves (Genesis 38:26, Genesis 44:16, Ezekiel 16:52). But it is also used to talk about justifying “tsadaq” the wicked (Exodus 23:7, Proverbs 17:15, Isaiah 5:23) or justifying the righteous (Deuteronomy 25:1, I Kings 8:32, II Chronicles 6:23, listing a few). And “tsadaq” is also used when talking about trying to justify ourselves or others (Jeremiah 3:11, Ezekiel 16:51). Recall that when we grow to be brighter and shine more and more it is a result of working in apostolic diligence with and in a newly sprouted Laodicean manifestation of glory. So this work is referring to continuing on in diligently ruling what is given to us in the Lord. When the linen that is supposed to gird us to serve in truth and righteousness is no longer on us, we are saying, “I have no desire to serve You here or in heaven.” And these people are seen in the spiritual realm with no girding to cover their loins. This is found often in Scripture when God talks of His people being naked. Meanwhile, the linen that they think does not need cleansing is also trying to be hid in Jesus’ righteousness. And when this happens, there is no fresh air for the garment to breathe. So we live in a state where we think all of “our” righteousness in Him is safely hidden for another time and place, yet what happens is that we are deemed unprofitable because we refused to do “works” that reflect our faith (James 2:17-20) in the Lord. We only wanted the “cela`” rock to be brought into His net (fortress) and to be delivered from our enemy (death and sin). We are given eternally what we choose to have of God.
Righteousness is directly connected to working in and by righteousness. It is not just handed over to us because Jesus is righteous and we are saved. Recall the verse below that was also given towards the beginning of this post:
8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and
white [bright]: for the fine linen is the righteousness [righteous acts] of saints the holy. (The Revelation 19:8)
When we have no interest in backing up our faith by labours (works) in the Lord and when we refuse to cleanse our linens with water, Christianity becomes a stretching out and misuse of “favorite” Scriptures. Instead of using His flowing and living Holy Spirit water to cleanse us from all unrighteousness, we do unseemly things like use Jesus’ Word for toilet paper. The recent run on toilet paper is the depiction of what God’s people have been doing under the religious systems. It is applying the words of God incorrectly to then declare ourselves “tsadaq” cleaned up and righteous. Below is the verse that has been misused as toilet paper:
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (I John 1:9)
When we confess our sins, the idea is to really know that what we have done is not okay, and it needs to be out of our lives. It is powerful when we come to the point of being convicted of sin by the Holy Spirit. It is a big deal. And the power to remove sin and to be free from sin is accomplished in Jesus and is dealt with by His grace. Confession is the starting point as a submission to the Lord that we are willing for Him to purge us from it. It is an agreement with God that we disapprove of the sin as God does. We reject it. And it takes the power of the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and God’s grace to do His labours in us. When we use I John 1:9 as though it is a toilet paper wipe, thinking that we are doing it to wipe ourselves “tsadaq” clean to just turn around and sin the same way again, it does two things. It redefines sin as though it is simply elimination of waste. And it also allows for the idea of sinning, just to sin again, just to ask for forgiveness again, just to sin again; and we never grow out of it because we have an out in our mind that a quick wipe is always there that we think will restore us to having a clean slate with God.
Toilet paper is great. And the use of toilet paper is a normal part of daily life to utilize when we eliminate waste from our bodies. It has nothing whatsoever to do with sin. Proper disposal of waste is found in Deuteronomy 23:12-14. Elimination of waste is to be dealt with appropriately to maintain holiness in the camp, and is not to be openly exposed. This is no big deal. People are expected to have their digging paddle as part of their daily gear (Deuteronomy 23:13). And there is no shame in how we are made or what our physical needs are. But when we start to view sin as though it is treated like we are merely eliminating waste, when we use I John 1:9 to wipe ourselves with, that is a big problem. And that is how God has been seeing His people “deal” with sin and how it has been taught to be dealt with by corrupted pastors and priests and why it was the opener to the current performance art that we are in the midst of. It was the grand opening to show us what God’s people believe and how they deal with sin by just trying to wipe it away, as though it is as normal as needing to use the bathroom. And they always use the “God knows my frame” to do the flush.
7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you. 8 And when He is come, He will reprove [convict] the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on Me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see Me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. (John 16:7-11)
Notice the connection of sin with not believing Jesus. This is not just talking about believing in Jesus to be saved. And notice that righteousness is connected to us not seeing Jesus because He goes to the Father, which is when the Holy Spirit is doing work to convict us of righteousness.
Let us stop kidding ourselves. We can be dreadfully sorrowful about sin, but we also know when we are not serious with God about it even in our most sincerest times of tears and shame. God knows; the hosts of heaven know. When God’s Word tells us that He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, it means that He is Just. He uses His justice to judge the sin. May the power of the Holy Spirit breathe back the power and truth of His Word into our thoughts and hearts.
It is a given that we should wash our body, just like it is a given for us to use the bathroom. But when we turn over our responsibilities to wash our linens, we forfeit our ability to labour in His righteousness. We then regress and become slaves to things like sin because we have removed the very thing that is our source for dealing with sin, which is the Holy Spirit’s personal work in us because of Jesus’ labours in conquering sin and death (Romans 8:2, James 1:14-15). When we labour unto the Lord and grow in Him, God deals with one thing after another. We wash our fine linen, wear it afresh, and then it gets dirty by living, and then we wash it afresh. Each cleansing results in a deeper purging and sometimes a needed prune now and then. We progress in His righteousness that He works in us; we do not merely wear His righteousness and then say, please change me.
To find out what happens to those who decide to forgo cleansing their linen cloth and then hide it in the “cela`” rock, we go back to Jeremiah. They will be hunted. Just as the recent toilet paper hunt. Let us be very sober, God and His Word is not mocked. He has revealed to us what we look like to Him when we serve corrupt religion and have given our wealth that He has given to us into the hands of them and the Amorite Crown rulers.
16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks [cela`]. (Jeremiah 16:16)
The nature of performance art
Have you had situations where you are going about your daily life and then weird things happen? This was likely a time when you participated in a performance art on earth to have it displayed not just on earth but in the heavens. It reveals itself as something that stands out and becomes a contrast to a “typical day” of events. It could be seeing a certain number of animals that are not often seen, with the importance of the kind and the number. It could be getting a flat tire at a certain location just when new tires were installed a few days before. It could be stopping in the desert to rest, noticing the road name or highway number, and then seeing one lone black cow that had just given birth. We become a Jeremiah, one “whom Jehovah has appointed,” which is the meaning of the name Jeremiah. Or it could be coming across a person with an unusual story to tell and being the ears to hear it. And that is when we become an observer of their particular performance art given to them by God.
Jesus’ life was full of performance art. He often explained it before He performed it. This is not referring to the much suffering in His life and His death. Those things provide pictures for us and they are not performance art; in the same manner that each person who is dying today by purposed starvation is not carrying out a performance art. But the deaths as a whole are carrying out the performance art reflecting the deaths of eternal calls of God’s people. Performance art is living out a concept that is real. It is not the real thing itself. Below is a mini-performance art performed by Jesus in the last half of John 12:36 below. It goes by fast, try to catch it. Jesus is the Light.
35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth. 36 While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide Himself from them. (John 12:35-36)
The next time something out of the ordinary takes place, try writing it down, either with your finger across the skies or down on paper; and then commit it into God’s kingdom where it will be documented and utilized by God in a mighty and unexpected way. Do we have to have the full understanding of what happened? No, we rarely do. But it is like what happens with a good story or movie that we later think more about or watch over again and see new depths to it. And the Holy Spirit will reveal deeper understanding of God in all things. And this is good and quite beautiful.
Jeremiah was asked to do many odd things, and he was willing to look ridiculous to those who watched. Sometimes we are in that boat with him. We can look pretty crazy, and can even be declared as foolish by others (1 Corinthians 4:9-10). But let us not play the fool for evil men by wearing face idols, because it is God who gives us mouths to speak and to be heard on earth and in the heavens. And let us be willing to eat at restaurants that have well-prepared food that we can take our time to eat and enjoy. And may all of the ministries go back to work so that the Church may grow and edify Him. We pray these things in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
May your days ahead become unusual in the Lord.
