Heart of God Ministries International
A Global Ministry to reach the Nations
with the Gospel and Light of Jesus Christ...

Jesus commissioned the Church to reach the nations
with the Gospel of the Good News!
Our ultimate objective of ministry is to impact cities and nations
with the Banner of Christ's Love over all !
Therefore, our vision embraces an International call for New Testament Evangelism and embraces the Edification of the Church Body of the Lord Jesus Christ through valid Scriptural teaching and building Kingdom culture relationships.  (Rom. 16:1-16;  1Cor. 16:13-20).
 
Our ministry work is instrumental in the equipping of dynamic "apostolic teams" to reach and teach those uninformed of the scriptural Kingdom message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Holy Bible entrusted to the Lord's apostles of the Lamb and His ascension-gift apostles.

We are committed to working
diligently to pull down strongholds that purpose to defeat the pure work of the Gospel.
(Acts 11:19-30; Acts 13:1-5)

The prophetic platform of the Word of God as recorded in the Old and New Testaments
and the inspiration, illumination and enlightenment of the Holy Spirit
is the foundation from
which we springboard
across the depth, height, width and length of the "Virtual City of Lights"
with the Love message of God!  (Jn. 3:16)

 
Ephesians 3:18-19  AMP
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints
[God's devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height
and depth [of it];

19[That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves]
the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience];
that you
may be filled [through all your being]  unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body
wholly filled and flooded with God Himself] 

God's visionary functions are carried out by the Holy Spirit in the earth! 
Figuratively, and as a biblical "type" we are earth!
Man is made from the earth...80% fluid and 20% earth elements.
For a deeper study, see Genesis 1:26, 27 & 28 and read of the creation vision and the actual formation
of man... you will also find many more insights as you glean the webpages of the City of Lights. 

It is in the presence and works of the Holy Spirit that enables the spiritual gifts to work effectively through us and transcend across the nations!
He is all present, all powerful and all knowing!
The promise of the Holy Ghost is here.  It is time to hear Him! 
He has some things He is doing in the "earth"(physical realm) to administrate the purposes of God
for this "time in the earth" (spiritual realm of mankind).


John 16:13-15    Jesus said, 
13 But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes,
He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth).
For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority];
but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father;
He will give the message that has been given to Him],
and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come
[that will happen in the future].

14 He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine
and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.

15 Everything that the Father has is Mine.
That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit] will take the things
that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you. AMP

 
=======================================

We can take Great delight in seeing God's plans and purposes come forth! 

God is faithful to His Word and His chosen. 
We have caught the VISION of God
(that which God intends to do through His people),
Our hearts and minds are focused on Him in all that we do to His cause. 
We are intently determined to do His will for the expansion of
His Kingdom in the "earth!"

Old Testament: Habakkuk 2:2-3  AMP
2 And the Lord answered me and said, Write the vision and engrave it so plainly upon tablets
that everyone who passes may [be able to] read [it easily and quickly] as he hastens by.

3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment];
it will not deceive or disappoint.

Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for it, because it
will surely come;
it will not be behindhand on its appointed day. 


New Testament: Hebrews 10:37-38  AMP
37 For still a little while (a very little while), and the Coming one will come and He will not delay.
38 But the just shall live by faith [My righteous servant shall live by his conviction respecting
man's relationship to God and divine things, and holy fervor born of faith and conjoined with it];
and if he draws back and shrinks in fear, My soul has no delight or pleasure in him.
39 But our way is not that of those who draw back to eternal misery (perdition) and are utterly destroyed, but we are of those who believe
[who cleave to and trust in and rely on God through Jesus Christ, the Messiah]
and by faith preserve the soul.

 

Throughout the Bible we are presented with symbolic language.
and in large measure with spectacular imagery!

The works of Heart of God Ministires International is not based upon a "literalist" interpretation.
A premillennialist woud find that the language of the Bible (in that it is a record of prophecy) is highly
figurative and has nothing to do with the 'reality" of the events predicted. They would further project
that symbolism is not a denial of historicity but a matter of literary style. Even dispensationists are
aware of the inaccuracies of "doomsday prophets."  They fail to grasp the interplay between prose and poetry thus, overemphasize the literal meaning to the neglect of the symbolic.

HGMI in our presentation of the LIGHT of TRUTH, LIFE and SPIRIT is careful to distinguish between 'figurative" use of language (a legitimate function of the "grammatical-historical method"..
seeking out the Hebrew and Greek meanings of words and the setting of the time (historical) and cultural (ways and beliefs as people lived). It is of absolute necessity to know the practices of the Jewish nation at the time of Christ and their acute understanding of the scrolls of the Old Testament.

Our Prophetic Voice web page studies and the City of Lights Prophetic Voice Newsletters are careful
to present the Bible in a balanced manner based upon the "grammatical-historical approach to getting clear understanding.  We also understand the pretext of overly "spiritualizing" the scriptures.
Figurative expressions portray historical events by colorful, dramatic, and overdrawn descriptions.  Spiritual interpretation. however, is a system of presenting the scriptures disregarding all historical
sense from the text in order to replace it with an abstract "spiritual reality."
Let us apply what has been discussed about interpretation.
Both focus and structure are important for a coherent understanding of the prophetic Word of God.


He is the Sovereign God Who existed before the unfathomable universe. Revelation 1:8  AMP
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all).

PASSOVER
(See FEASTS). Pecach  (Ex 12:11, etc.). The word is not in other Semitic languages, except in passages derived from the Hebrew Bible; the Egyptian word pesht corresponds, "to extend the arms or wings over one protecting him." Also she'owr, "leaven," answers to Egyptian seri "seething pot," seru "buttermilk," Hebrew from sha'ar  something left from the previous mass. Pass-over is not so much passing by as passing so as to shield over; as Isa 31:5, "as birds flying so will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem, defending also He will deliver it, passing over He will preserve it" (Matt 23:37, Greek episunagon, the "epi" expresses the hen's brooding over her chickens, the "sun" her gathering them together; Ruth 2:12; Deut 32:11). Lowth, "leap forward to defend the house against the destroying angel, interposing His own person." Vitringa, "preserve by interposing." David interceding is the type (2 Sam 24:16); Jehovah is distiller from the destroying angel, and interposes between him and the people while David intercedes.
So Heb 11:28; Ex 12:23. Israel's deliverance front Egyptian bondage and adoption by Jehovah was sealed by the Passover, which was their consecration to Him. Ex 12:1-14 directs as to the Passover before the exodus, Ex 12:15-20 as to the seven days' "feast of unleavened bread" (leaven symbol(sing corruption, as setting the dough in fermentation; excluded therefore from sacrifices, Lev 2:11). The Passover was a kind. of sacrament, uniting the nation to God on the ground of God's grace to them. The slain lamb typified the "Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world" (John 1:29). The unleavened loaves, called "broad of affliction" (Deut 16:3) as reminding them of past affliction, symbolized the new life cleansed from the leaven of the old Egyptian-like nature (1 Cor 5:8), of which the deliverance from the external Egypt was a pledge to the believing. The sacrifice (for Jehovah calls it "My sacrifice": Ex 23:15-18; 34:25) came first; then, on the ground of that, the seven days' feast of unleavened bread to show they walked in the strength of the pure bread of a new life, in fellowship with Jehovah. Leaven was forbidden in all offerings (Lev 2:4-5; 7:12; 10:12); symbol of hypocrisy and misleading doctrine (Matt 16:12; Luke 12:1). The seven stamped the feast with the seal of covenant relationship. The first and seventh days (the beginning and the end comprehending the whole) were sanctified by a holy convocation and suspension of work, worship of and rest in Jehovah, who had created Israel as His own people (Isa 43:1,15-17). From the 14 th to the 21 st of Nisan. See also Ex 13:3-10; Lev 23:4-14.
In Num 9:1-14 God repeats the command for the Passover, in the second year after the exodus; those disqualified in the first month were to keep it in the second month. Talmudists call this "the little Passover," and say it lasted but one day instead of seven, and the Hallel was not sung during the meal but only when the lamb was slain, and leaven was not put away. In Num 28:16-25 the offering for each day is prescribed. In Deut 16:1-6 directions are given as to its observance in the promised land, with allusion to the voluntary peace offerings (chagigah, "festivity") or else public offerings (Num 28:17-24; 2 Chron 30:22-24; 35:7-13). The chadigah might not be slain on the Sabbath, though the Passover lamb might. The chagigah might be boiled, but the Passover lamb only roasted. This was needed as the Passover had only once been kept in the wilderness (Num 9), and for 38 years had been intermitted. Joshua (Josh 5:10) celebrated the Passover after circumcising the people at Gilgal.
First celebration. On the 10 th of Abib 1491 BC the head of each family selected a lamb or a kid, a male of the first year without blemish, if his family were too small to consume it, he joined his neighbor. Not less than ten, generally under 20, but it might be 100, provided each had a portion (Mishna, Pes. 8:7) as large as an olive, formed the company (Josephus, B. J., 6:9, section 3); Jesus' party of 13 was the usual number. On the 14 th day he killed it at sunset (Deut 16:6) "between the two evenings" (margin Ex 12:6; Lev 23:5; Num 9:3-5). The rabbis defined two evenings, the first the afternoon (proia) of the sun's declension before sunset, the second (opsia) began with the setting sun; Josephus (B. J., 6:9, section 3) "from the ninth (three o'clock) to the 11 th hour" (five o'clock). The ancient custom was to slay the Passover shortly after the daily sacrifice, i.e. three o'clock, with which hour Christ's death coincided.
Then he took blood in a basin, and with a hyssop sprig sprinkled it (in token of cleansing from Egypt-like defilements spiritually: 1 Peter 1:2; Heb 9:22; 10:22) on the lintel and two sideposts of the house door (not to be trodden under; so not on the threshold: Heb 10:29). The lamb was roasted whole (Gen 22:8, representing Jesus' complete dedication as a holocaust), not a bone broken (John 19:36); the skeleton left entire, while the flesh was divided among the partakers, expresses the unity of the nation and church amidst the variety of its members; so 1 Cor 10:17, Christ the antitype is the true center of unity. The lintel and doorposts were the place of sprinkling as being prominent to passers by, and therefore chosen for inscriptions (Deut 6:9). The sanctity attached to fire was a reason for the roasting with fire; a tradition preserved in the hymns to Agni the fire god in the Rig Veda. Instead of a part only being eaten and the rest burnt, as in other sacrifices, the whole except the blood sprinkled was eaten when roast; typifying Christ's blood shed as a propitiation, but His whole man hood transfused spiritually into His church who feed on Him by faith, of which the Lord's supper is a sensible pledge. Eaten with unleavened bread (1 Cor 5:7-8) and bitter herbs (repentance Zech 12:10). No uncircumcised male was to partake (Col 2:11-13). Each had his loins girt, staff in hand, shoes on his feet; and ate in haste (as we are to be pilgrims, ready to leave this world: 1 Peter 1:13; 2:11; Heb 11:13; Luke 12:35-36; Eph 6:14-15), probably standing. Any flesh remaining was burnt, and none left until morning. No morsel was carried out of the house.
Jehovah smote the firstborn of man and beast, and so "executed judgment against all the gods of Egypt" (Ex 12:12; Num 33:3-4), for every nome and town had its sacred animal, bull, cow, goat, ram, cat, frog, beetle, etc. But the sprinkled blood was a sacramental pledge of God's passing over, i.e. sparing the Israelites. The feast was thenceforth to be kept in "memorial," and its significance to be explained to their children as "the sacrifice of the Passover (i.e. the lamb, as in Ex 12:21, 'kill the Passover,') to Jehovah" (Hebrew Ex 12:27). In such haste did Israel go that they packed up in their outer mantle (as the Arab haik or burnous) their kneading troughs containing the dough prepared for the morrow's provision yet unleavened (Ex 12:34). Israel's firstborn, thus exempted from destruction, became in a special sense Jehovah's; accordingly their consecration follows in Ex 13. This is peculiar to the Hebrews; no satisfactory reason for so singular an institution can be given but the Scripture account.
Subsequently (Lev 23:10-14) God directed an omer or sheaf of firstfruits (barley, first ripe, 2 Kings 4:42), a lamb of the first year as a burnt offering, with meat offerings, on the morrow after the sabbath (i.e. after the day of holy convocation) to be presented before eating bread or parched grain in the promised land (Josh 5:11). If Luke 6:1 mean "the first Sabbath after the second day of unleavened bread," the day on which the firstfruit sheaf was offered, from whence they counted 50 days to Pentecost, it will be an undesigned coincidence that the disciples should be walking through fields of standing grain at that season, and that the minds of the Pharisees and of Jesus should be turned to the subject of grain at that time (Blunt, Undesigned Coincidences, 22). (But see SABBATICAL YEAR.) The consecration of the firstborn in Ex 13, naturally connects itself with the consecration of the firstfruits, which is its type. Again these typify further "Christ the firstfruits of them that slept"; also the Spirit, the firstfruits in the believer and earnest of the coming full redemption, namely, of the body (Rom 8:23); also Israel, the firstfruit of the church (Rom 11:16; Rev 14:4), and elect believers (James 1:18).
"The barley was smitten, for the barley was in the ear ... but the wheat was not smitten, for it was not grown up" (Ex 9:31-32). The seasons in Judaea and Egypt. were much the same. Therefore in Deut 16:9 the direction is "seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the grain," namely, at the Passover when the wave sheaf was offered, the ceremony from which the feast of weeks was measured. By "grain" the barley harvest is meant: had Moses written "wheat" it would have been impossible to reconcile him with himself; but as "corn" means here barley, all is clear, seven weeks still remaining until wheat harvest, when at Pentecost or the feast of weeks the firstfruit loaves were offered (Blunt, Undesigned Coincidences, 1). Moreover, the Passover lambs were to be slain at the sanctuary, and their blood sprinkled on the altar, instead of on the lintel and doorposts (Deut 16:1-6). The Mishna (Pesachim, 9:5) marks the distinctions between "the Egyptian Passover" and "the perpetual passover." The lamb was at the first Passover selected on the tenth day of the month (not so subsequently: Luke 22:7-9; Mark 14:12-16); the blood was sprinkled on the lintels and side-posts; the hyssop was used; the meal was eaten in haste; and only for a day was unleavened bread abstained from. The subsequent command to burn the fat on the altar, and that the pure alone should eat (Num 9:5-10; 18:11), and that the males alone should appear (Ex 23:17; Deut 16:16), was unknown at the first celebration; nor was the Hallel sung as afterward (Isa 30:29); nor were there days of holy convocation; nor were the lambs slain at a consecrated place (Deut 16:2-7). Devout women, as Hannah and Mary, even in late times attended (1 Sam 1:7; Luke 2:41-42).
The fat was burned by the priests (Ex 23:18; 34:25-26), and the blood sprinkled on the altar (2 Chron 35:11; 30:16). Joy before the Lord was to be the predominant feeling (Deut 27:7). The head of the family or anyone ceremonially clean brought the lamb to the sanctuary court, and slew it, or on special occasions gave it to Levites to slay (2 Chron 30:17). Numbers at Hezekiah's Passover partook "otherwise than it was written," "not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary" (Num 9:5-10). Instead therefore of the father of the family slaying the lamb and handing the blood to the priest, to sprinkle on the altar, the Levites did so; also at Josiah's Passover (2 Chron 35:6,11). Hezekiah prayed for the unpurified partakers: "the good Jehovah pardon every one that prepareth his heart to seek God ... though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary." Hezekiah presumes that those out of Ephraim coming to the Passover were sincere in seeking Jehovah the God of their fathers, though they had been unable to purify themselves in time for the Passover. Sincerity of spirit in seeking the Lord is acceptable to Him, even where the strict letter of the law has been unavoidably unfulfilled (Hos 6:6; Mic 6:8; Matt 9:13). Hezekiah kept the Passover as "the little passover" in the second month, for "they could not keep it" at the regular time, "because the priests had not sanctified themselves sufficiently, neither had the priests gathered themselves to Jerusalem." They kept other seven days beside the first seven, (1) because Hezekiah had given so many beasts that there was more than they could use during the ordinary seven days; (2) so many priests bad sanctified themselves as to be able to carry on the altar services with such numerous sacrifices. Josiah's Passover is the next recorded (2 Chron 35). Then Ezra's (6).
The Pesachim (7:1) say a wooden (pomegranate) spit was thrust lengthwise through the lamb; Justin Martyr says (Trypho, 40) another spit was put crosswise, to which the front feet were attached; so do the modern Samaritans in roasting the Passover lamb; type of the cross, it was roasted thoroughly in an earthen beehive-shaped oven, but not touching the sides, that the roasting might be wholly by fire (Ex 12:9; 2 Chron 35:6-13). The modern Jews use dry thin biscuits as unleavened bread; a shoulder of lamb thoroughly roasted, instead of a whole one; a boiled egg, symbolizing wholeness; sweet sauce to represent the sort of work in Egypt; a vessel of salt and water (representing the Red Sea) into which they dip their bitter herbs; a cup of wine stands all the night on the table for Elijah (Mal 4:5); before filling the guests' cups a fourth time an interval of dead silence follows, and the door is opened to admit him.
The purging away of leaven from the house, and the not eating leavened bread, is emphatically enforced under penalty of cutting off (Ex 12:15-20; 13:7). The rabbis say that every corner was searched for leaven in the evening before the 14 th Nisan. The bitter herbs (wild lettuces, endive, chicory, or nettles, all articles of Egyptian food: Pesachim 2:6) symbolized Israel's past bitter affliction, and the sorrow for sin which becomes us in spiritually feeding on the Lamb slain for us (Luke 22:62). The sauce is not mentioned in the Pentateuch, but in John 13:26; Matt 26:23. Called haroseth in the Mishna: of vinegar and water (Bartenora). Some say it was thickened to the consistency of mortar to commemorate Israel's brick-making hardships in Egypt. Four cups of wine handed round in succession were drunk at the paschal meal (Mishna, Pes. 10:1,7), which the Pentateuch does not mention; usually red, mixed with water (Pes. 7:13). (See Luke 22:17,20; 1 Cor 10:16; and LORD'S SUPPER.) The second cup was filled before the lamb was eaten, and the son (Ex 12:26) asked the father the meaning of the Passover; he in reply recounted the deliverance, and explained Deut 26:5, which was also connected with offering the firstfruits. The third was "the cup of blessing." The fourth the cup of the Hallel; others make the fourth, or "cup of the Hallel," the "cup of blessing" answering to "the cup after supper" (Luke 22:20). Schoettgen says "cup of blessing" was applied to any cup drunk with thanksgiving (compare Ps 116:13). The Hallel consisted of Ps 113; 114, sung in the early part of the Passover, before the lamb was carved and eaten; Ps 115-118, after the fourth cup (the greater Hallel sung at times was Ps 120-138). So the "hymn" sung by Jesus and His apostles (Matt 26:30; Mark 14:26).
The ancient Israelites sat. But reclining was the custom in our Lord's time (Luke 22:14; Matt 26:20; John 21:20 Greek). A marble tablet found at Cyricus shows the mode of reclining at meals, and illustrate, the language of the Syrophoenician woman, "the dogs eat of the crumbs." The inhabitants of Jerusalem accommodated at their houses as many as they could, so that our Lord's direction to His disciples as to asking for a guestchamber to keep the Passover in was nothing unusual, only His divine prescience is shown in His command (Matt 26:18; Mark 14:13-15). Those for whom there was no room in the city camped outside in tents, as the pilgrims at Mecca. In Nero's reign they numbered, on one occasion, 2,700,000, according to Josephus (B. J. 6:9, section 3); seditions hence arose (Matt 26:5; Luke 13:1). After the Passover meal many of the country pilgrims returned to keep the remainder of the feast at their own homes (Deut 16:7). The release of a prisoner at the Passover was a Jewish and Roman custom which PILATE (which see) complied with (Matt 27:15; John 18:39).
As to the reconciling of the synoptical Gospels, which identify the last supper with the Passover, and John, who seems to make the Passover a day later, probably John 13:1-2 means "before the Passover (i.e. in the early part of the Passover meal) Jesus gave a proof of His love for His own to the end. And during supper" (ginomenou, the Vaticanus, Sinaiticus manuscripts, even if genomenou be read with the Alexandrinus manuscript it means when supper had, begun to be), etc. Again, John 13:29, "buy those things that we have need of against the feast," refers to the chagigah provisions for the seven days of unleavened bread. The day for sacrificing the chagigah was the 15 th, then beginning, the first day of holy convocation. The lamb was slain on the 14 th, and eaten after sunset, the beginning of the 15 th. Also John 18:28, the rulers "went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover," means that they might go on keeping the Passover, or that they might eat it even yet, though having suffered their proceedings against Christ to prevent their eating it before, or especially that they might eat the chagigah (Deut 16:2; 2 Chron 35:7-9); the Passover might be eaten by those not yet cleansed (2 Chron 30:17), but not so the chagigah.
Joseph however did not scruple to enter the praetorium and beg Jesus' body from Pilate (Mark 15:43). Had the Passover supper not been until that evening (John 18:28) they might have been purified in good time for it by ablution; but as the feast had begun, and they were about to eat the chagigah (or the Passover lamb itself, which they ought to have eaten in the early part of the night), they could not. Lastly, John 19:14, "the preparation of the passover," is explained by Mark 15:42, "the preparation, the day before the subbark" in the Passover week; the day of holy convocation, the 15 th Nisan, not "before the Passover." So John 19:31, "the preparation for the sabbath" began the ninth hour of the sixth day of the week (Josephus, Ant. 16:6, section 2). "That sabbath was a high day," namely, because it was the day (next after the day of holy convocation) on which the omer sheaf was offered, and from which were reckoned the 50 days to Pentecost. It is no valid objection that our Lord in this view was tried and crucified on the day of holy convocation, for on the "great day of the feast" of tabernacles the rulers sent officers to apprehend Jesus (John 7:32-45). Peter was seized during the Passover (Acts 12:3-4). They themselves stated as their reason for not seizing Him during the Passover, not its sanctity, but the fear of an uproar among the assembled multitudes (Matt 26:5). On the Sabbath itself not only Joseph but the chief priests come to Pilate, probably in the praetorium (Matt 27:62). However, Caspari (Chr. and Geogr. Introduction Life of Christ) brings arguments to prove Christ did not eat the paschal lamb, but Himself suffered as the true Lamb at the paschal feast. (See JESUS CHRIST.) The last supper and the crucifixion took place the same (Jewish) day. No mention is made of a lamb in connection with Christ's last supper. Matthew (Matt 27:62) calls the day after the crucifixion "the next day that followed the day of preparation." The phrase, Caspari thinks, implies that "the preparation" was the day preceding not merely the Sabbath but also the first day of the Passover feast.
All the characteristics of sacrifice, as well as the term, are attributed to the Passover. It was offered in the holy place (Deut 16:5-6); the blood was sprinkled on the altar, the fat burned (2 Chron 30:16; 35:11; Ex 12:27; 23:18; Num 9:7; Deut 16:2,5; 1 Cor 5:7). The Passover was the yearly thank offering of the family for the nation's constitution by God through the deliverance from Egypt, the type of the church's constitution by a coming greater deliverance. It preserved the patriarchal truth that each head of a family is priest. No part of the victim was given to the Levitical priest, because the father of the family was himself priest. Thus when the nation's inherent priesthood (Ex 19:6) was delegated to one family, Israel's rights were vindicated by the Passover priesthood of each father (Isa 61:6; 1 Peter 2:5,9). The fact that the blood sprinkled on the altar was at the first celebration sprinkled on the lintel and doorposts of each house attested the sacredness of each family, the spiritual priesthood of its head, and the duty of family worship. Faith moving to obedience was the instrumental mean of the original deliverance (Heb 11:28) and the condition of the continued life of the nation. So the Passover kept in faith was a kind of sacrament, analogous to the Lord's supper as circumcision was to baptism. The laying up the lamb four days before Passover may allude to the four centuries before the promise to Abram was fulfilled (Gen 15), typically to Christ's being marked as the Victim before the actual immolation (Mark 14:8,10-11). Christ's blood must be sprinkled on us by the hyssop of faith, else guilt and wrath remain (Isa 53:7; Acts 8:32; 1 Peter 1:18-19). Being first in the religious year, and with its single victim, the Passover stands forth preeminent.

His presence is to be experienced in a new dynamic and dramatic way!
This is the 21st century! We have entered God's prophetic 3rd day.
This is the century in which we experience His resurrection power!
It is the century for the restoration of all things and the advance of the Great Harvest! 
It is time for the Church to find Unity in the Purposes of God and His Agenda. 

The Lord Jesus was
Messiah's Day began with the Feast of Penetcost, the Day of God's promised Holy Spirit being
poured out upon flesh!

2 Peter 3:8 KJV
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.


      0 to 1000 = 1st day
  1000 to 2000 = 2nd day
   2000 to  .....  =  3rd day

God pours out His Holy Spirit symbolically as the rain as in  the "Deluge" of Noah's day.
Remember, the Bible instructs: first the physical, then the spiritual.
Expect outpourings in both realms!
Don't expect to see the work of the Holy Spirit in the exact form or pattern
He has demonstrated in the past out-pourings! 
The presence of God always represents the sign of new things!
Remember that the earth was bringing moisture to water it's surface from deep within before Noah completed the Ark and the "Physical Deluge" manifested upon the earth's surface as rain from the heavens. It came as a torrent flood!  After the flood was a time of restoration.
It was a time for increase and God moved by His Spirit, the Holy Spirit to birth new vision and purpose for mankind through 8 individuals. 
Eight represents new things, new beginnings, new relationships... resurrection!


 
Prophetic Insight:
  The number 7 represents perfecting... 
   Perfecting is an action of progression. 
   To perfect something or some one,
the old has to be stripped
   away back to the foundation.

   Then, comes the restoration work of establishing the "NEW THINGS."
   The year 2008 was a time of continued progression of the spiritual process working in 2007 and
    transcended into the works of "New Things."
   
In 2009, we entered a time of consolidation of the moves of the Holy Spirit.
    The special sent church is God's envoy to build and expand the Kingdom!
    The King has commissioned us to bind together on His foundation to reach the territories
     of the earth to convert multitudes of people and to incorporate them into the Kingdom of Heaven! 

  
Spiritually in the immediate years ahead, we will see souls flow into the the Kingdom of God
   as the rains were in the days of Noah!
   Word of the Lord received  June 2013  

   "This morning I was awakened to the sound of the Abundance of Rain ,

    I heard the Spirit saying this :

    For I have begun to do a new thing in your midst , these next few weeks and months
    will be the greatest out pouring of my Spirit you will have ever encountered .

    Now is the time to prepare that which I have given to release thru you.

    For I shall bring many in your midst to come and work with you to accomplish
    all that a have put in your hand to do. 

    Great Signs and wonders will be released thru those who have heard my voice ,
    My Bride who has made herself ready will now reap the harvest of my outpouring.
    Many will stand in awe of all that I will accomplish , For I have many who have not bowed
    their heart to a lost and decaying world.  My Heart is tender so donít surrender your season
    is here , open your eyes and you will see the Abundance of rain from my Spirit. "

                                                                                                           received by Tom Hill
 
A Spiritual Deluge!
This is a time when God is demonstrating Greater Things in the Spirit regarding our placement in Him! To accomplish these great exploits the foundations of the church will continue to be restored, revived and renewed!                          
=======================================

   [The following is the operational gift of the Word of Knowledge
   delivered through Ron Gann  December 2007.]


  Be Holy for He is Holy.
  The citizens of the earth are going to see and feel the Almighty
  Presence
of a Holy God in the acts that transverse the globe! 
  These acts will be beyond the abilities of mankind to conceive little alone to control. 
  God is the God of Grace and Judgment.
  God is sovereign and in charge regardless of any man's designed movement to save or protect
  the processes of the earth's environments.


 
These are marked days in God's calendar of Grace...
  •  Days of great commercialization bringing Great wealth into the church.
  •  Days of excessive consummation centered on personal human desires.
  •  Days when the deification of man is at an all time thrust in the earth as man is exercising his powers to "dethrone" the Son of Man, the Son of God.
  God's favor is focused on the families of the earth... those of the spiritual... 
  God's Kingdom family; the visible church and the invisible church. 
  God's family is going to experience the revelation of His Love
like never before! 
   His love is demonstrated as it pertains to His order of Life.
 
His order of Life is that of increase!
  Isaiah 9:7
  Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David
  and  over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from
  the [latter] time forth, even forevermore.

  The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
[End of Word of Knowledge]

See these references; Dan 2:44; 1 Cor 15:25-28; Heb 1:8. AMP
     

=======================================

  Jesus is setting on the Throne of David and has been ruling the nations for over 2000 years!
   We are going to see an exponential increase of His government!

  Increase is seen and experienced in His power of Multiplicity!
  His spiritual multiplication powers are being magnified
in seedtime and harvest.

  On to the review 2008!   Eight represents "new beginnings!"
  The church is basically spiritually dead... it is dry and expresses very little thirst for the work
  of the Holy Ghost. 
It is resurrection time! 
  Keep in mind that Jesus is in charge of the Church!  He knows all.

  All power and authority in heaven and earth belong to Christ Jesus!
  The Church is His instrument on the earth and He administrates through us.

He is the King of all things and the Church is being renewed!

   Matt 16:15-18 
AMP
   He said to them, But who do you [yourselves] say that I am?
   16 Simon Peter replied, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.
   17 Then Jesus answered him, Blessed (happy, fortunate, and to be envied) are you, Simon
   Bar-Jonah. For flesh and blood [men] have not revealed this to you, but My Father Who is in heaven.

   18 And I tell you, you are Peter [Greek, Petros--a large piece of rock], and on this rock [Greek, petra--
   a huge rock like Gibraltar] I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (the powers of the infernal
   region) shall not overpower it [or be strong to its detriment or hold out against it]. 

 

   Matt 16:18  
KJV
   And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church;
   and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 


  
In these two scripture references, we need to grasp the full significance of what the Lord has
    spoken.   In what follows, you will see a demonstration of how wonderfully the Amplified Bible
    enables us to better interpret the Holy script.


   Jesus is referencing that Peter has grasped the spiritual knowledge and revelation, that Jesus
   is the Christ.   Greek,
christos,  CHRIST "anointed," translates, in the Septuagint., the word "Messiah,"
   a term applied to the priests who were anointed with the holy oil, particularly the high priest,
   e.g., Lev 4:3,5,16. The prophets are called hoi christoi Theou, "the anointed of God," Psalm 105:15.
   A king of Israel was described upon occasion as christos tou Kuriou, "the anointed of the Lord,"
   1 Sam 2:10,35; 2 Sam 1:14; Ps 2:2; 18:50; Hab 3:13;

   (from Vine's Expository Dictionary of Biblical Words, Copyright (c)1985, Thomas Nelson Publishers)
   It is on this revelation ... Jesus is the Son: the Anointed One; King, High Priest and Prophet that He
   declares to Peter how He is going to build His Church.
 
   The Lord was not talking about Peter, an individual person,
building the Church.
   He was talking about the keys to building the church being conveyed to appointed men who would
   govern or oversee the building of it on earth. It would be Peter as one 12special messengers along
   with the ascension apostles and prophets who would be entrusted with the keys and mysteries to
   build the Church.  (Not the churches)

  Christ
was speaking about the name Peter as defined in the Greek... it means petros or piece of rock
  as you see above.
  Peter in Aramaic is Cephas also means rock and is a surname.
  Peter would be one part, small piece of the Rock that Christ would leave in the earth as part of the
  apostolate of whole Rock.  It would be an ascension-gift apostle, Paul, who would see by revelation
  of Christ as the Head and His Body of many parts making complete the Spiritual Rock, Mount Zion,
  the one Holy Apostolic Church!
 
  The revelation Peter received declares the builder...
Jesus is The
Rock!  He is the foundation.  The word rock means petra,
a mass of rock, the strength given to Christ's church. 
Rock is Hebrew tsur which means mighty God, (one) rock, strength, strong... figuratively "refuge."
Jesus is the foundation...themelios, literally something put down, substructure as under a building.  Build...oikodomeo, to construct or confirm, edify, embolden.
Church...ekklesia, community of believers...members, assembly, church.
Peter had the revelation that Jesus was the Son of God.  Jesus said that Peter's mind did not deduct the significance of the revelation.
Christ states that it was spiritually given to Peter by the Father. 
God the Father is Spirit and Truth.  We see the spiritual reality of this
revelation of Jesus on the Day of Pentecost  when Peter again declares that Jesus is the Son of God.  Peter as the petros, a piece of the "Rock" becomes the Lead Apostle appointed to introduce the Kingdom on earth to both the Jews and the Gentiles.  Peter worked as one of the 12 Apostles
of the Lamb to carry the Good News message to the Jews.
Paul, the Apostle was called to carry the Good News to the Gentile world.
Paul was extended the right hand of fellowship by the apostles in Jerusalem extending the Kingdom and the government of the Church.
 

Contextually, Jesus continues to prophesy stating that the gates of hell shall not prevail against His Church.  The emphasis of the context is on the church being built, not on Peter being the one who builds it.  Jesus commended twelve to initiate the building process.  Jesus worked with them daily adding to the church.  He empowered them with the anointing
of the Holy Ghost to do the work and to prevail against the wiles of the devil, Satan.
He gave them the authority of all that He is... in His Name!  He is the Rock:
steadfast, unmovable, can be trusted, relied upon... faithful.     
 Prevail...katischuo,  to overpower.  Hell...haides,  the place of departed souls and powers of the infernal region. 
Jesus defeated Satan and took back the keys to hell and death.
He gave the keys of life to the Church through the power of the Gospel!
Today's churches must once again become the Church.  Inorder to do this, there must be a regaining of the true Gospel to the Church... all of it!
Rev 1:18
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.  KJV 
Jesus gave us the keys to the gateway!  Jesus is the door! He gave the keys of the Good News, the New Covenant...
the promise of life everlasting of soul and spirit!
The Kingdom of God is everlasting.  The Kingdom is in us.
Christ dwells in us through His Word and the Holy Spirit.
It is only the body , the flesh of man that cannot inherit nor enter the Kingdom of Heaven.   On the earth, we spiritually cannot enter into the Kingdom with the thoughts and training of humanism.  The "carnal" spiritually depraved  "fleshly mind" cannot receive the things of God.

Only through transformation of mind, soul and action can we enter into the Kingdom of Christ's Light.
Once we are transformed consisting of repentance, faith, baptism, reception of the Holy Spirit and yielded to discipleship in the "community of Christ," we live in His spiritual Body on earth today for we have entered the Kingdom and now receive the Truth of the truth-giving Spirit of God.
We have been loosed of bondage to the Law of Sin and Death by the power of the Gospel of Christ through the Light of His Testimony!

Matt 16:19  AMP
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind
(declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven. [Isa 22:22.] 

Jesus gave all He could give that He might fill all things in heaven and
in earth.  It is time that the whole Church receive His Gift of the Holy Ghost! It is time to unwrap, discover, appreciate and receive
His person, the Holy Spirit  that we might do Greater Things...
Great Exploits while we are here on earth in our allotted time!
The Kingdom of God is ... in the Holy Ghost.  (Romans 14:17 KJV)

It is time for the full Body of Christ
to awaken to the revelation of Jesus Christ!
He gave the keys to the church to do as recorded in His instructions to Peter!   The person, Holy Spirit had declared and disclosed the revelation to Peter!  Jesus rewarded Peter both with participation of building the church and the assurance that the work would be cared for, tended to and protected!
 
The gates of hell shall not prevail!
Jesus has promised to finish that which he has initiated! 
What more could we ask?
We are to live by the Law of the Spirit of Life!

We have once again entered an era that will be superseded
by supernatural signs, miracles and wonders of God!  
They will manifest in the physical: the earth and heavens.
They will manifest through the spiritual Church! 
Jesus will demonstrate His power as King and Lord
of all things through His Church!
We have been given the Keys to the secrets and mysteries
of the Kingdom of God!

=======================================

There is much more that must be done.  The Church must learn about its proper form of government.  We will build upon the works of the Holy Ghost sent by Christ for the edification of the Church and the maturing of the saints.  The foundation of the church was the fellowship of the apostles with the Father, Son, Holy Spirit and each other.
A measure of faith is being released in the church today that is restoring the revelation of Christ to lead God's plan for the Church
to the final victory. 

God intends to demonstrate His glory in all things to a dimension that will overtake the spirit of men's minds across the globe!
We are in the beginning days when our Heavenly Father
repossesses the earth... both the physical and the spiritual!
He will do it through His people as they are led by the Word of God,
the Holy Spirit led to the restoration patterns of the biblical New Testament Canon as given to the Church of the 1st Century.!
You can learn of this restoration movement by reading the documents of the CAC
The link is in the first paragraph of this web page.


The restoration movement will be relational and demonstrational and will not be according to plans devised by men and promoted in traditional, orthodox and denominational doctrines.

If you cannot receive this.. please read the awesome account of God in the Book of Genesis, then the Book of Exodus, then the account of the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John,  the Acts of the first century church and the epistles.  What does the Bible reveal?
It reveals that God has a plan and what he purposes becomes both physical and spiritual realities!

Heb 11:1-3
1 NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the
things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].

2 For by [faith--trust and holy fervor born of faith] the men of old
had divine testimony borne to them and obtained a good report.

3 By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages]
were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible. AMP

Rom 4:17b
...God...calls those things which be not as though they were... KJV
(This is one key to spiritual destinies/spiritual realities.)

Let the link below help to demonstrate that which is being disclosed and transmitted in the realm
of both spiritual and physical destinies!
Dr. Scott Mcleod adapted the copyright work of Karl Fisch
into a Flash movie
as presented in    "Did You Know" 
This flash movie was initially received through random broadcast distributed to my personal email.   It is a very credible production!
It will bless and inform you in a mighty way! 

My impression of the work is that it beautifully defines and conceptually portrays the creative work of God working in the creative powers He imparted into mankind as He empowered Adam with the dominion mandate. It is a Way of access to the global souls of humanity!
Through spiritual eyes of understanding, you can see God as He reveals Himself in His triune Majesty:  Authority, Greatness and Dignity.

He is Awesome!
God is the Blesser, the Increaser, the Multiplier in all good things!

Spiritual acts have physical consequences!
We can either walk in Blessings or Curses depending upon our choices and actions.  God desires that we walk in His purposes, His will, and His acts.  [This three (3) part cord is not easily broken. (Ecc. 4:12)] 
We shall be intently determined to do God's will as we link together in one accord as He reveals His purposes for our lives and we take actions to accomplish them.   (Psalms 133:1)
This is the pattern that Jesus demonstrated with the twelve.
This is the pattern that the apostles demonstrated as they built the Church as the Lord added daily to it! They built it upon His foundations!
 
=======================================

The following insights in the remaining parts of this letter were released into my spirit in February 2005.  The year 2005 was a year of Great Favor on God's people.  It also began a year of great calamity on the earth, especially climatically and therefore economically and spiritually as well!  
Lives and souls were dynamically affected in exponential magnitudes. 
There was a great cry that went forth from the earth for God to intervene.   God heard the cries as the hearts of people were turned to prayer and great service of compassion was rendered for rescue and human needs. Hurricanes (including Katrina), 1000's of tornadoes,
expansive flooding, unbridled fires, earthquakes and wars.
No these do not alert us to a time of false rapture theology.
The great tribulation of the Scriptures are behind us not in front of us.
The year 70 AD was the Sign that all had been fulfilled and that Jesus was ruling with the scepter of iron raising up nations and taking down nations.  70 AD was a perfecting year for the Old apostate church of Law of Moses closed out and the consummation of the New Church, the New Covenant founded on the Law of the Spirit.
(Read The Sign of the Kingdom by Dr. George Kouri available through
the CAC website.)
 
Christ Jesus has established His pattern for evangelism. 
Under the guidance of His ascension-gift apostles, prophets,
evangelists, pastors, and teachers working together in apostolic order,
His Body is to move and act in unity of purpose to reach cities, and nations! 

War and calamity opens the hearts and minds of mankind to reach out to the Greater Power of the Creator. 
Just as there was a tremendous window of opportunity for God's people to minister to the Body and the lost through the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 devastating times, these times are not over.  God set in place the Laws of the Universe before the foundations of the world!  Physical and moral calamity will always be a present in this physical world until the Church is matured and the Lord returns for the day of resurrection in the final day. (see1Cor 15:51-54)

Through the restoration of divine government of the whole Church will come the Great Harvest!

=======================================

Do you recall the attention to prayer that came forth in 2005
and the nation's attention given to the helping hands
of the Body of Christ due to the Hurricanes?


Jesus, personally, demonstrated the divine privilege and power of prayer while He was on earth.  Prayer is spiritual power that we can exercise at large against natural calamities and to war against the works of darkness. 
1 Kings 18:42-45; Josh. 10:12-14;  Mark 4:39;  Eph 6:10-18

Prayer is a spiritual reality that impacts spiritual and physical destinies!
        (John chapter 17)


The internet enables us to participate in God's governmental patterns throughout the world.  
The dimension of reaching nations in nano seconds would be unimaginable to generations
that occupied planet earth before us!  Consider the technical advances in just the past
100 years!  In the past 20 years, the dynamics of living on planet earth have changed dramatically!  We live in a season of signs, wonders and miracles exponentially happening everyday! 
Population of the earth will soon break into the 7 billion range.
There are a million babies born every four days!
New energy sources and ways to travel are on the horizon! 
There are changes coming that will baffle the minds of men in Greater measures than anything yet imagined! 
In like dimensions, the apostolic (special mission) work to bring the
Light of Jesus Christ to the unseen world of the internet becomes a pure function of Heaven by the leading of the Holy Ghost!

Of most importance is that we minister the same revelation of Christ and His church according to the Word of God and not the designs of men.  We must believe the VOICE of the Scriptures!

What  awesome opportunities we have!

As demonstrated by Christ's apostles, God's Kingdom order,
structure, and spiritual government are set in place by the Holy Spirit
working in apostolic appointment. (ordained and sent of God)
He receives what the Father desires and has been given to our ruling King, Jesus.  The Holy Ghost then anoints those whom the Lord Jesus
Christ commends as ascension gift ministers for placement
in the church to lead and guide the building processes in the
Kingdom of Heaven on earth!
This is an act upon men and is a pure function of the Lord's reign. 
The gifts of the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher are given to also appoint elders and thus be exercised in unity of purpose to establish spiritual government within communities all over the world.
We are living in the times of the restoration of the divine plan of God.
The office of the apostle is now a viable function of the church and the
role and dominant emphasis upon the pastoral office is being put into
divine order. Apostolic government is coming forth to replace
the undue pressure of the shepherd office doing every task to bring forth the "works of the ministry."  Apostolic balance is being restored.    

The spiritual man is to guide and control the physical man. 
This truth applies both to each individual as well as to the corporate masses of the world. 
There are great changes coming in the earth!
Did you grasp this last statement?!
Please do not miss the full prophetic message of Charles Capps
on the 
TEAM Leaders  web page.

These apostolic appointments are based on God's principles of Kingdom rule:
Remember that Jesus is the King of all the universe!
He is alive and active in His rule! 
He is ruling on David's eternal throne!
Jesus is not looking for a throne on earth from which to rule!
He is ruling spiritual Jerusalem NOW!
The promise to Abraham is our promise...the spiritual Israel, given to those in Christ...not the physical Israel.  You will never see an earthly Jewish Kingdom again. Jesus said before Pilate (before His crucifixion, death, burial, descent into hell, His resurrection, ascension, and enthronement to David's eternal throne) "My Kingdom is not an earthly Jewish Kingdom. 
It is an eternal heavenly Kingdom."
"And you will never again see an earthly Jewish Kingdom!"
Let us look at the scripture to see that this is accurate...
John 18:35-37 
AMP
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Your [own] people and nation and their chief priests have delivered You to me. What have You done?
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom (kingship, royal power) belongs not to this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My followers would have been fighting to keep Me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, My kingdom is not from here (this world); [it has no such origin or source].
37 Pilate said to Him, Then You are a King? Jesus answered, You say it! [You speak correctly!] For I am a King. [Certainly I am a King!] This is why I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the Truth. Everyone who is of the Truth [who is a friend of the Truth, who belongs to the Truth] hears and listens to My voice.

Since the very words of Jesus are that His Kingdom is not of this world, why receive the false doctrines of John Darby widely circulated through the printing of the Scofield Bibles? These Bibles had comments and references that did not point to the truth of what Jesus said and what David said and what Peter said and what Paul said and what Isaiah said...  Today, it is the leadership of pentecostal and charismatic churches that continue the "rapture theology."  The Scriptures do not support nor proclaim such doctrines.

God's Will has been spoken and written in His Holy Word!
It will be done on the earth as it is in Heaven!
  • Conversion from sin and repentance from dead works.
  • Faith to believe in, trust in, rely on, and adhere to Christ.
  • Baptism in all its dimensions including  Water, the Word, Holy Ghost and Fire.
  • Equipping for the works of the ministry: preaching, teaching and impartation as by the Holy Ghost and the Word of God...
  • God's Word brings Light and Life to our lives!  By doing what He says (obeying) and by being led by His Spirit, we fulfill the call to the Greater Works destinies in the work of the Kingdom!
Christ's Body, the church, is both dynamically physical and spiritual. 
We labor in the work of Christ moving in the process to fulfill what He
has already filled and made ready for us.
Ephesians 4:11-16.

Those who connect with Heart of God Ministries International move in
a special grace.  They are active in the wonderful Christ-centered entities which care for, network with and develop structures, strategies and services for:  the Body of Christ and mobilization of God's people to reach the uninformed and the rebellious.


We are seeking men, women and youth that are firm in their convictions to the King and who wish to learn what the scriptures reveal.
Then, have a heart's desire to work in the Kingdom of God and a desire to do Great Exploits!
These are not super spiritual individuals.  These are the people of God with a heart searching for His will to be done in their lives.

Ministries are encouraged to contact us to learn more about the
scope of the International works of Heart of God Ministries and to connect with us to minister and equip the people of God.

The Lord has prepared some "fresh" things for the nations!
We must have God's perspective on His biblical approach to building. 
We must see God working progressively triumphantly in our actions as He matures the church.  
When we see Him doing something new,
it should gain our attention!

Ex 3:1-4
NOW MOSES kept the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian; and he led the flock to the back or west side of the wilderness and came to Horeb or Sinai, the mountain of God.
2 The Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the
   midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush burned with
   fire, yet was not consumed.
3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside and see this great sight,
   why the bush is not burned.
4 And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see,
  God called to him out of the midst of the bush and said,
  Moses, Moses!   And he said, Here am I. AMP
The spiritual gift of the Word of God then reveals the plan of God for Great Exploits using an apostolic TEAM composed of Moses and his brother, Aaron.
God endows Moses with prophetic insight as a type of apostle and shadow of things to come. Aaron is an apostolic worker being prepared for the work of the ministry. Both are sent as special messengers by God.  Later, God ordains Aaron as the high priest of the nation of God and institutes the Law of Sin and Death through the ten commandments given to Moses to establish the Church of the Wilderness.

These ten commandments are given as God's Covenant with His established Hebrew nation. Two thousand years ago God closed out the Mosaic Covenant with its physical sacrificial blood offerings to cover sins and trespasses.  He established the New Covenant of the Law of the Spirit of Life through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Heb 1:1-12
1:1 IN MANY separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the Truth] and in different ways God spoke of old to [our] forefathers in and by the prophets,
2[But] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [the person of a] Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order].
3 He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God's] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high,
4[Taking a place and rank by which] He Himself became as much superior to angels as the glorious Name (title) which He has inherited is different from and more excellent than theirs.
5 For to which of the angels did [God] ever say, You are My Son, today I have begotten You [established You in an official Sonship relation, with kingly dignity]? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He will be to Me a Son? [2 Sam 7:14; Ps 2:7.]
6 Moreover, when He brings the firstborn Son again into the habitable world, He says, Let all the angels of God worship Him.
7 Referring to the angels He says, [God] Who makes His angels winds and His ministering servants flames of fire; [Ps 104:4.]
8 But as to the Son, He says to Him, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever (to the ages of the ages), and the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of absolute righteousness (of justice and straightforwardness).
9 You have loved righteousness [You have delighted in integrity, virtue, and uprightness in purpose, thought, and action] and You have hated lawlessness (injustice and iniquity). Therefore God, [even] Your God  (Godhead), has anointed You with the oil of exultant joy and gladness above and beyond Your companions. [Ps 45:6,7.]
10 And [further], You, Lord, did lay the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the works of Your hands.
11 They will perish, but You remain and continue permanently; they will all grow old and wear out like a garment.
12 Like a mantle [thrown about one's self] You will roll them up, and they will be changed and replaced by others. But You remain the same, and Your years will never end nor come to failure. [Ps 102:25-27.]  AMP

God's approach to history is one of continuity.  It is also one of change!
We have work to do!  Nothing Happens until Something moves! 
The direction and intent of our movement is paramount to our working together in His vision!  Even though we serve an invisible God to the natural eye, we can see his hand and works in the visible "records of history."
We must hear what the Spirit is saying to the church about God's
continuous plan. The work we accomplish will be by the direct guidance
and anointing of the Holy Ghost and the infallible Word of God.

We are not an advocate of a weak God. 
Therefore, we are not an advocate of a weak church!
We are not an advocate of a church that runs away to party for seven years and then returns to a war scene.  The picture of the revelation of John does not depict the saints with warrior uniforms.   He saw
the armies of heaven clothed in white linens and riding white horses.
They are riding following "the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords,
as he rides forth to conquer Satan's kingdom.  White represents righteousness.  We conquer the world of darkness as we seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.   Who is the King?
What is our call and charge?  It is to receive, seek the Lord with all of our heart, soul and mind and obey His commands.
 
Jesus has made it quite clear as to His evaluation of victors and conquerors!  We are admonished by the Scriptures not to "hook our wagon" to doctrine that promotes false or weak interpretations of
God's Word.

We are more than conquers in Christ Jesus!
Nine motivational Gifts of the Spirit and Nine Fruit of the Spirit are magnified through God's obedient people throughout the earth! 
They are magnified exponentially through relational destinies!
Magnification represents increase
which is a proponent of strength!
It is not by our power of intellect or our might
in physical endeavors to which I address...
it is by the power and might of the Holy Spirit
that we are to move and have our being!

There will not be a historical break that removes believers from history on the earth until the end of history! And, there will not be a continuous decline in cosmic and cultural influence of the Gospel in history!
We should expect a God who brings forth victory in His people!
God is moving apostolically through called and chosen vessels sent and appointed to restore the church to its foundational truths and to build and expand the Kingdom on earth!
The Church of Jesus Christ is the Victorious Church!
The Holy Bible only demonstrates this one scenario... 
We are not destined for retreat!
Our God will fight the battles through His people! 

He is the One who brings the Victory!
We just have to take the steps of faith!
God established faith and there is not a shortage...
He has multiplied faith... in exponential power!

The Holy Bible demonstrates a Covenant God with expectations that His sons be strong and courageous...not fearful of terrible things that destroy the earth and minds and souls of mankind.  The Holy Bible tells us to be strong in the Lord, to reverentially fear Him (love Him) and obey Him (respect His will in our lives).  He has given assurance of eternal life.  His instructions are for us to focus on the eternal and not on the temporal because He is faithful to fulfill His promises!
Our fight is not with flesh and blood, but with spiritual forces of darkness.  God has made the way for our victory!
We are to be like Joshua!  Josh 24:15 
KJV
"...but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

We set our sights to remain faithful to God's revealed Laws of Truth, Life and Spirit through the power of the Word of Faith, the Blood of Christ, and the empowering of the Person, Holy Ghost!

The year 2007 confirmed just how mighty and wonderful that our Lord is in all that He has established for those who love Him with a pure heart!   Purification of the heart is a perfecting process!
God is never late, He is a God of Faith and an on time God!
The Holy Bible cautions that the very elect shall be deceived! 
Please do not be one of them.

Let us prepare our hearts for the rewards God has promised in the visions He has released into each of us individually and corporately.   Watch Him! 
2008  promised New Things!
2009 
released "birthing" a dynamic wave of signs, wonders and miracles! 
2010  His ways are not our ways. 

God wants to Stir a NEW Fresh Hunger in our hearts. 
He has called us to be Great! 
These are the days for acting! 

God has given visions and He fulfills them!  
In different times through His prophets
of this 21st century day of visions,
He has spoken!


Today's visions are confirmed by His Word looking to the pattern
of the prophets of old... (Hosea 12:10)
"I have also spoken [to you]

by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions [for you] and
{have appealed to you] through parables acted out by the prophets."
  

We are a blessed generation...the generation of the Church age! 
We were created for Greatness!

Receive God's special anointing of His presence
for Greater Works!
 

Will you answer His call?

 Not everyone shall read this letter.
God had a divine appointment set for you and made the way for you to travel His path to these words! 
Will you participate with us to facilitate God's vision?  
 God wants us to see through His Heart!
Want to learn more? Team Leaders

God has put the City of Lights vision in our hearts!
The potential for Great Exploits by God's people is breathtaking!
