The Harvest Is Ripe!
"He will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner"
"How be it, we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory" (1Cor. 2:6-8).
Behold it is written, "eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it come to the heart of man what God has prepared for them that love him", but he has been revealing the same to us through the Holy Spirit which he has given us. Yea, even the deep things of deity, that we also may look for the city which had foundation whose builder and maker is God, like the faithful Abraham (Heb. 11: 9-10, 1Cor.2:9-end).
Even as it is written that, "unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places it might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God." (Eph.3:8-11,1:18-20).
Therefore, brethren, I pray that as you follow on to know the Lord, and as you read from this ministry, your eyes of understanding be open to be able to comprehend with all the saints (who have known) the riches of His inheritance toward us. Praise the Lord.
The Purpose of God
Thus has the Lord God said: "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last. Before me there was no God formed and after me there shall be no God formed, yea the beginning and the end."
Brethren, have you learnt the secrets of God? Behold his secrets are with the righteous. (Job. 15:8; Prov.3:32; Isa.43:10). Daniel 7 verse 18 says, "But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever and ever". Also verse 27 says: "And the kingdom and dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the most high, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominion shall serve and obey him".
Behold this is the plan and purpose of God, to deliver this earth to the Holy people after He had allowed the children of Cain (unholy seed) to inhabit it for 6000 years. But he has prepared a place for them (hell) after He shall remove them from the earth; No wonder the Lord said, (Isa.45:18) "I have created the earth not in vain, It shall be inhabited." But only the righteous shall inherit the earth. For this purpose Christ died and rose to redeem us from sin and to put inside us the righteous nature. So, live holy to keep your garment white, which is the uniform of the redeemed.
In summary, Saints will possess the kingdom for ever and ever. Therefore, be a saint. Love not this world. Our kingdom is coming.
The Millenial Day
Brethren I want you to take note of something: one of the mysterious books in the bible is the book of Genesis, because it takes God himself to reveal to Moses all that he wrote in it, since nobody was there when God created the heavens and the earth. Hence it is to be noted that God hid mysteries of his work and purpose throughout the ages in the book of Genesis, as it were, in symbols.
Gen.2:1-2 says, "Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day, God ended his work which he had made and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made."
The word of God is understood only by revelation of the Holy Spirit, and not context-wise, because Christ said of the revelation of himself given to Peter, that "upon this rock, I will build my church".
By revelation we know that it was written: "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." (1Pet. 3:8). Therefore the understanding which God gives shows the seventh day as the coming "Millenium" of the thousand year reign of Christ, physically on earth. (Rev.20:4).
"For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day rest on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief." (Heb.4: 4-6).
In Heb. 8:9, "For if Jesus had given them rest , then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God". (Read psalm 95; Heb. 3:7-19; Heb. 4:1-11).
Thus, as the sin offering and burnt offering which the Lord instituted for the Jews in the old testament was typing the lamb of God (Christ) who was to come, so also the sabbath day was typing the "millenium" rest to come. (Heb.10:1).
By this revelation we know that the world has 6000 years before God is finished with mankind. The first man, Adam, was created about 4000 B.C according to bible chronology and historical findings, and we are in the last phase of the 2000 years A.D.
In this message I will bring forth each day's creation of the 6 days, by revelation, as a symbol of the major spiritual happenings in the respective thousand years. From this, you will realize the wisdom of our God and his omniscience, because anything that physically happened upon this earth has its link to the millenial-activity of the age as prophesied in genesis chapter one.
Gen 1.1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth". Meditate on these verses: (Gen 1:2; Psa. 97:2; John 1:1-3; Heb. 11:3; Psa. 18:9-12; and 2 Sam. 22:10-12).
(Gen. 1:3-5) "And God said, let there be light; and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good: and God divided the light from darkness. And God called the light Day and the darkness he called Night, and the evening and the morning were the first day."
Note that there was light before there was the sun, because the sun came up in the 4th day, and yet as it were now on the earth, it seems (and it is so) that all lights, physically, is from the sun at all its angles.
So is it spiritually, for Christ said, "Ye are the light of the world". Hence the seed of Adam through the line of Seth typified the light and the seed of the serpent through Cain typified the darkness. God himself separated the light from the darkness when Cain became a Vagabond. In the end, there shall not be night, nor darkness because the serpent's seed shall be wiped off the earth (after the Millenium). (Gen. 4 & 5; Rev.21:25).
(Gen.1:6-8) "And God said, let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters and let it divide the waters from the waters ".
All activities in the 2nd millenial day worked its way into the water baptism of the earth as it is in the plan of God to redeem the earth in similar process of water baptism, sanctification, and baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire. Thus Genesis 6 recorded the flood as the climax of the spiritual events of that age which occurred 1656 years after Adam was created according to bible chronology.
(Gen. 1:9-13) "And God said, let the waters be gathered together and dry land appear . Let the earth bring foth grass, the herb yielding seed, after his kind .. it was so, and the evening and the morning was the third day".
The bible often symbolize men by trees (Gen 2;17; Mat. 3:10; Jn.15:1). The bringing forth of trees after his kind in the 3rd "millenial" day points to the dispersion of men in that age during the tower of Babel episode of Gen. 11:1-9, which resulted in the variety of races, colors, languages, and tongues "after their kind", till today.
Summarily, all men originated from the east (Gen.11:1-2). "As they journeyed from the east ", being of one language and of one speech, the tower of Babel episode made God scatter both their language and their locality . (Gen 11:8). You will now not be surprised to know that when the European voyagers reached the Americas (which is, as it were, an island with respect to the known world of that time) they met human beings. Color changed due to environment, and it affected the reproductive glands also. God indeed used bodily transportation to scatter them upon the earth. (Gen. 11:8) "So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city."
(Gen.1: 14-19) "And God said, let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night and let them be for signs to give lights upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day; and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also to divide the light from the darkness".
Read Jn.1:1-9. "That was the true light which lighteth every man that cometh into the world." (Jn.1:9). That is the Christ. See Malachi 4:2. Also see Mat. 14-16; Jn.11:9-10; Jn.12:35-36.
The greater light, the sun, as I said earlier, is the source of all lights on earth physically. Even though it was manifested in the 4th day, there had been light since the 1st day. Similarly, it typified the appearance of Christ in the 4th "Millenial" day , who has been ever the source of the lights which spiritually have appeared since Adam. Christ - the Sun of Righteousness (Mat.4:2). The lesser light, the moon, draws its light as a reflection of the sun, and thus typified the bride of Christ, the church, manifested in the absence of Christ (the Sun), to rule the night. (1Jn. 1:5-7, 2:8). The climax is seen in Rev.12:5 as the Sun and Moon uniting to give birth to the first fruits, the sons of God, at the end of the ages. Hitherto, the moon appears when the sun disappears. At the end time, like in an eclipse of the sun, the bridegroom and the bride meet, resulting in a birth. Eclipse of the sun is accompanied with darkness upon the earth (when the moon stands between the sun and the earth). Similarly, the birth of the man-child, (Rev.12:5), is during a time of spiritual darkness.
(Gen. 1:16) "He made the stars also ..". Stars symbolize the righteous and the servants of God (Dan.12:3). As if an afterthought in the way the sentence "he made the stars also" was written, it signified that even before the 4th day, there had been stars manifested as it is known in the scripture, by the appearance of prophets of God from Adam unto John the Baptist. The church began to manifest from the Apostles.
Gen. 1:18 reveals one of the major works of the greater and lesser lights, which is to "divide the light from the darkness". This is to separate and call out the seed of God from the world. (Jn.17:18) "As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world". Jn.11: 51-52 talks about Jesus "should gather together in one, the children of God that were scattered abroad."
Hitherto, in Gen.1:4, God himself divided the light from the darkness, and in Gen.1:14-19, God in the human form as Christ the light, and the church are the greater and lesser lights to do the dividing. (2Cor.5:18 - the ministry of reconciliation). (Jn.5:26,27).
(Gen.1:20-23) "And God said, let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth And God created great whales after their kind and every winged fowl after his kind and God blessed them, saying Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. And the evening and the morning were the fifth day."
One thing you must note is that, out of all the creatures brought forth by the sea, only the fowls of the air required salvation during the flood in the ark of Noah. All others remained in the sea and did not die. (Gen.6 & 7).
(Rev.13:1-3) " .. a beast rise up out of the sea and all the world wondered after the beast".
(Isa.27:1) "In that day, the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish Leviathan the piercing serpent, even Leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea."
These verses are to give an insight into what the sea-breeds could symbolize. In fact it has to do with the powers that instituted false religions; as in the beast from the sea, symbolizing "Rome", where idolatry was christianized, and in the 5th "millenial" day caused the dark ages of the church. It started from "the deeds of the Nicolaitanes" and the doctrine of Balaam, causing lukewarmness and worldliness to creep into the fold from the Ephesian church age, whereby opening the door to the fowls of the air. (Lk.13:19; Mat.13:4,14).
These are the "certain men that crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation; ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness " as written in Jude 4. "These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water " (Jude 12).
Thus, you can see that God blessed them to multiply in their time. For unto them "is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever". (Jude 13). They will be gathered (and they are being gathered now) and will go into their own lots at this time of the end, for their time is fulfilled.
( To be Continued .)
Don't miss the 6th & 7th day wherein God completed his work.
"Blessed is he that waited and cometh unto the thousand three hundred and ninety days". (Dan.12:12). Amen!
