David Eells - 9/26/21

Photosynthesis Parable

David Eells - 9-3-21

In a dream or vision night before last. I saw my back porch, which had green leaves spread out all over it and nothing else. The backdrop for this scene is the tippy top of Son-shine Mountain, as we named it years ago, with its trees. I knew that this spoke of giving life to the creation including man.

From a Britanica article: (David’s notes in red)

Photosynthesis is the process in which green plants use sunlight to make their own food. (God’s people are likened to green trees and plants because they must take in Son Light to have life. They must take in the light of life everyday and as we will see, they must give it out to the creation or the process of receiving stops. We are a river of living water not a pond of stagnant water. (1Jn 5:12  He that hath the Son hath the life; he that hath not the Son of God hath not the life. 2Jn 1:9  Whosoever goeth onward and abideth not in the teaching of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the teaching, the same hath both the Father and the Son. Joh 8:12  Again therefore Jesus spake unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.  Mat 5:14  Ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. This is speaking of our responsibility to others in the fallen creation.) 

Photosynthesis is necessary for life on Earth. Without it there would be no green plants, and without green plants there would be no animals. (or humans and there would be no fruit of the Son without which no man can have eternal life. As Jesus showed in the parable of the sower, three out of four receive the Light of the Word for a limited time and depth but it is not long or deep enough for them to bear fruit and they fall back into death and are not able to pass on the Light to others.)

Photosynthesis requires sunlight, chlorophyll, water, and carbon dioxide gas. Chlorophyll is a substance in all green plants, especially in the leaves. Plants take in water from the soil and carbon dioxide from the air. (Carbon dioxide is death to humans but plants clean the air by taking this in and putting out water and oxygen, which is life to the creation and humans. This water and oxygen are released from the stomata, meaning little mouths, underneath the leaves. When we take in the Son we can speak water of the Word and oxygen of breath or spirit to the creation. Breath and spirit are often the same word in scriptures. We are God’s evangelists to exchange death for life through our Words. Pro 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. First through our words we receive the reconciliation, meaning exchange of the Sons life for ours and then we are able to give it to others. We are ministers of reconciliation, meaning exchange, to the creation. Through the gospel we put their old life on the cross and give them the Life of the Son from the cross. 2Co 5:18-19  But all things are of God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and gave unto us the ministry of reconciliation;  19  to wit, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself, not reckoning unto them their trespasses, and having committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2Co 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.)

Photosynthesis starts when chlorophyll absorbs energy from sunlight. (As Gods plants we receive energy from the Son’s Light to walk in life and give life to the dying creation.) Green plants use this light energy to change water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and nutrients called sugars. The plants use some of the sugars and store the rest. The oxygen is released into the air. (When we receive nutrients from the Word of the Son “death [carbon dioxide] is swallowed up of life [oxygen, the breath or spirit of life]”. Like the plants we make from this Spirit and Word sugar for fruits which have the seed to reproduce the fruit of the Son in others.)

Photosynthesis is very important because almost all living things depend on plants for food. Photosynthesis is also important because of the oxygen it produces. Humans and animals need to breathe in oxygen to survive. END (We were created to be God's breath, or spirit of life, to others.)

(As Revelation 22 shows, the river of the waters of life flow from the throne of God in Zion to feed the tree of life, which is the tongue of the righteous whose leaves are "little mouths” for the healing of the nations.)

{Rev.22:1} And he showed me a river of water of lifebright as crystalproceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb(Jer 3:17  At that time they shall call Jerusalem the throne of Jehovah; and all the nations shall be gathered unto it, to the name of Jehovah, to Jerusalem: neither shall they walk any more after the stubbornness of their evil heart. (As John was told by the angel in Revelation, Jerusalem is the Bride who is being born out of the Word from heaven. The righteous Bride is born of the water of life, the Word, which is Christ. The Bride is the people of the name, meaning nature, character and authority of the Lord, who is the Word of Life.)

{2} in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was the tree of life (In Hebrew - Pro 15:4 The healing of the tongue is a tree of life...)bearing twelve [manner offruitsyielding its fruit every monthand the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nationsThe Words of life proceed from the throne of God through the “little mouths” of spiritual Jerusalem, the Bride, to heal the receptive people of the nations. Jas 1:26  If any man thinketh himself to be religious, while he bridleth not his tongue but deceiveth his heart, this man's religion is vain. Pro 18:21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.  Psa 37:30  The mouth of the righteous talketh of wisdom, And his tongue speaketh justice. Joh 8:47  He that is of God heareth the words of God: for this cause ye hear them not, because ye are not of God.)

{3} And there shall be no curse any more (These waters of the Word deliver the receptive from the curse listed in Deu 28 because Jesus became accursed for us.): and the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be therein: and his servants shall serve him; {4} and they shall see his face(1Jn 3:2-3  Beloved, now are we children of God, and it is not yet made manifest what we shall be. We know that, if he shall be manifested, we shall be like him; for we shall see him even as he is.  3  And every one that hath this hope set on him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. 2Cor 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit.  Jas 1:23  For if any one is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a mirror. Those who bear the fruit confess the Word and not the curse because they see the face of Jesus in the mirror.  He will live in them because of this vision of faith.)

and his name [shall beon their foreheads. (They have the mind of Christ, which is His name meaning His nature, character  and authority.) {5} And there shall be night no more; and they need no light of lamp, neither light of sun; for the Lord God shall give them light (They need not the natural light but the light of Christ's Word so they walk in the light as He is in the light.): and they shall reign for ever and ever. {6} And he said unto me, These words are faithful and true: and the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, sent his angels to show unto his servants the things which must shortly come to pass

If we walk in the light of the water of the Word, we will be blessed to take the land of rest; God's promised land of milk and honey. If we continue to rebel against the Word and speak contrary to it, we shall see a terrible Babylonish beast bondage.

(Let us examine a similar river of the water of life and its effects.) {Eze.47:1-12}  And he brought me back unto the door of the house; and, behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward (for the forefront of the house was toward the east); and the waters came down from under, from the right side of the house, on the south of the altar(The Word is the waters from the House of God out of Zion the Bride to bring salvation and healing to the peoples. This was as Jesus spoke the Words of life to his first fruits disciples whom John called the Bride telling them. Joh 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water.  (Then this river of the water of the Word went out from them to build the Church.) Isa 2:3 And many peoples shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of Jehovah from Jerusalem.  Joe 3:16  And Jehovah will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but Jehovah will be a refuge unto his people, and a stronghold to the children of Israel. Amo 1:2  And he said, Jehovah will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the pastures of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.)

{2} Then he brought me out by the way of the gate northward, and led me round by the way without unto the outer gate, by the way of the gate that looketh toward the east; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side. {3} When the man went forth eastward with the line in his hand, he measured a thousand cubits, and he caused me to pass through the waters, waters that were to the ankles(I spoke to a woman years ago who had a dream that she was trying to get into deeper water as she walked out from shore but she kept coming up on sand bars to ankle deep waters. She had a very shallow understanding of God and His Word. Then the water suddenly came up deep enough to swim in. Then she asked her apostate pastor, Who dynamited the levy? He said it was the giant in the mountain.  Then she saw a giant stooped over and running through a tunnel in the mountain. Next to him was dinosaur who was running upright.  She asked me what this meant. I said the waters are the shallow waters of the Word that you are walking in and the deep waters are the Word you shall walk in. The dinosaur is the doctrine you and many think is extinct. I am the giant who outgrew that understanding many years ago but am stooping down to share with you deeper understanding of the mountain, which is the Kingdom of God. 

She told me she had a dream that she went to the door of four houses and nocked.  In the first three houses a harlot answered the door. The forth house you answered the door.  She asked what this meant.  I said, how many religions have you been in?  She said, “Three". I said, “Thats what I thought". Of course the denominations that believe all the supernatural parts of Christianity passed away with the apostles are harlots and that was all she had been a part of. Well she was at my door then so I taught her for quite a few years about the deeper water.)

{4} Again he measured a thousand, and caused me to pass through the waters, waters that were to the knees(Representing 30-fold fruit of the waters of the Word walked in.) Again he measured a thousand, and caused me to pass through the waters, waters that were to the loins(Representing 60-fold fruit of the waters walked in.) {5} Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass through; for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed through(Representing Waters of baptism unto the death of self, which go over the head to put to death the mind of flesh. Representing 100-fold fruit of the waters walked in.)

{6} And he said unto me, Son of man (This name represents Jesus in the Man-child walking in 100-fold fruit. Ezekiel was the Man-child who was caught up to the throne of God and then sent to the children of captivity in 1:26-2:4.), hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the bank of the river. {7} Now when I had returned, behold, upon the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other(Those who swim in the deep waters are able to bring the healing waters of the tongue to heal the peoples. The greatest revival will spring forth in the coming days as we are about to see in this text.)

{8} Then said he unto me, These waters issue forth toward the eastern region (Jesus returns to the Temple from the east.), and shall go down into the Arabah (The wilderness tribulation); and they shall go toward the sea (The Dead Sea represents the spiritually dead peoples of the world and their waters are dead.); into the sea shall the waters go which were made to issue forth; and the waters shall be healed(The spiritually sick will be spiritually and physically healed through the deep water people. Many spiritually dead people will come to spiritual life.)

{9} And it shall come to pass, that every living creature which swarmeth, in every place whither the rivers comeshall live (A great revival of the Word and Spirit is coming.); and there shall be a very great multitude of fish; for these waters are come thither, and the waters of the sea shall be healed (The word and understanding of the lost, including the lost in the so called Church, shall be cleansed.), and everything shall live whithersoever the river cometh(Joh 7:38-39  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water.  39  But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet given; because Jesus was not yet glorified. (As we see here, the Son of Man was the beginning of the New Creation man and His glorification and resurrection life is what we accept in the mirror as ours. This is the gospel.)

{10} And it shall come to pass, that fishers shall stand by itfrom En-gedi even unto En-eglaim shall be a place for the spreading of netstheir fish shall be after their kindsas the fish of the great seaexceeding many(Many evangelists will fish for a great multitude brought out of all nations as the waters of life heal them.) {11} But the miry places thereofand the marshes thereofshall not be healedthey shall be given up to salt(Drain the swamp! Living waters are moving waters; dead waters are stagnant waters, like the Pharisees and apostates of “Christianity" walk in. Those who do not receive the living waters from the “little mouths" will be reprobated, like Lot's wife, who turned to salt when she looked back to the life she loved.)

{12} And by the river upon the bank thereofon this side and on that sideshall grow every tree for foodwhose leaf shall not whitherneither shall the fruit thereof failit shall bring forth new fruit every month, because the waters thereof issue out of the sanctuaryand the fruit thereof shall be for foodand the leaf thereof for healing. (As it was with Jesus and his first fruits disciples, the waters of the Word of the Man-child body will give life to the trees whose leaves become "little mouths' speaking healing to the nations of the elect.)

(Rev.22:2) … And on this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve [manner of] fruits, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (So, how do “leaves” heal the nations? The leaves of a tree are for photosynthesis. They take in the sun and they let out oxygen and water, which is life, because you can’t live without either one of those. It’s life, and each leaf is like an individual within a corporate body. We take in the Son, the Word of God, and we’re able to give life. There wouldn’t be anything on this planet without leaves; without leaves, everything would be dead. In fact everyone who does not take in the Son is eternally dead because eternal life comes from the Son and it comes through many "little mouths". “He that is of God hears the Words of God."

If we walk in the light of the water of the Word, we will be blessed to take the land of rest; God's promised land of milk and honey. If we continue to rebel against the Word, we shall see a terrible Babylonish beast bondage.

 Giraffe: Judgment and Restoration Ministry

Eve Brast's Giraffe dream - 8/12/2011 & update Giraffe dream below - 3/6/2016
(David's notes in red)

Eve had this first dream shortly after the faction began and it is about their fall and judgment and now she received the healing update dream below this. This also applies to the larger apostate church.

David had called me and another woman with dark hair into a living room. (Eve represents the Bride of the last Adam, Jesus. The dark-haired woman represents those who are submitted to darkness since hair is a sign of submission to our husband, Jesus, in 1 Corinthians 11.) The room was unfamiliar to me and I didn't recognize the surroundings. It had wood paneling and the lights were off. I knew the wood paneling was the same as that of the Terra Delphi dream David had years ago. (It was a revelation of the apostate church and its worldly leadership in which I received the pulpit as a David taking the place of a Saul. It was a sign that the David/Man-children will have fruit out of the apostate church.)

The only light in the room came from an old black and white TV set with rabbit ears to my right(In the natural, there is normally nothing good about a TV but in this parable light represents truth and purity while black represents lies and evil. Black and white TV represents seeing things as wrong or right and differentiating between the two. Rabbit ears represents good hearing or wisdom and fruitfulness. Right here represents the sheep in Jesus' parable, not the goats on the left.) There were no channels on the TV(There is only one station we should be tuned in to in order to hear and see -- the Father who teaches the clear difference between light and darkness.)

There was only a static screen with the volume turned down. (This old TV represents the truths of the ancient path and Word that we should desire.) The woman with dark hair (those submitted to darkness) and I were sitting together on a dingy couch. She was on my right and her presence interfered with receiving a clear signal from the TV. {1Co.5:6} Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? {7} Purge out the old leaven that ye may be a new lump....

There was a recliner across from the couch with a coffee table in the middle. I was concerned that David (Representing the Man-child David reformer ministries) had called me to this room and I felt like a child waiting to see the principal. I looked at the woman next to me on my right. She considered David her enemyShe was upset with David and had a grievance with him(The factious apostates of all kinds.) She sat with her arms folded over her chest and her lips pursed in pride with her back and neck stiffened(Representing stubborn unforgiveness and bitterness that turns one and their house over to tormentors -- Matthew 18:34,35.)

David entered the room and sat in the recliner. He then leaned forward with piercing eyes (eyes that see in the darkness) and asked a rhetorical question: "The two of you have had a dream. What was it about?" I was hesitant to tell David the dream because there was some confusion as to what it meant. So I whispered to the woman on my right to ask her if she had dreamed about a giraffe and she nodded yes. (Both the Bride and the factious had dreams about David and the Man-child ministry, represented by the giraffe, but the factious rebelled against their own dreams when they became demon possessed.)

Before I could answer David, he asked, "It was about a giraffe, wasn't it?" I immediately started sobbing and was so remorseful that I hadn't told David about my confusion concerning what the giraffe in the dream meant. But the other woman remained as she was because she was convinced that the giraffe meant something evil or bad. (The Father revealed to me that this woman represents a spirit of always having to be in the right. This is why she was seated on my right in a place where she didn't belong and interfering with the black and white TV reception of the truth.) I immediately got up and fled away from that woman and the paneled room. Once I had left that room and got away from her out in the fresh airI felt much better. Then I woke up. {Tit.3:10} A factious man after a first and second admonition refuse; {11} knowing that such a one is pervertedand sinneth, being self-condemned. {Rom.16:17} Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them that are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which ye learned: and turn away from them. {18} For they that are such serve not our Lord Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and fair speech they beguile the hearts of the innocent. If you will "turn away from" these spirits and the willing vessels that they speak to you through, you will be saved. We have seen deliverance come to those who repent.)

I asked the Father to reveal to me what I represent in this dream, what the other woman represents, what David represents, what the overall dream represents and what the giraffe represents. These are the verses that fell to each by faith at random:

For myself: {Pro.11:6} The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them; But the treacherous shall be taken in their own iniquity. (As David was teaching about the Bride, he had said this position is not guaranteed and that we must love the truth.)

The dark haired factious woman: {Jer.46:22} The sound thereof shall go like the serpent: for they shall march with an army, and come against her with axes, as hewers of wood.

For David: {Isa.21:10} O thou my threshing, and the grain of my floor! that which I have heard from Jehovah of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declaired unto you. (David is a tool from the Father that He is using to thresh the people of God.) (Threshing represents separating the wheat from the chaff or fruit from the flesh or righteous from among the wicked. {Isa.41:15} Behold, I have made thee [to bea new sharp threshing instrument having teeth; thou shalt thresh the mountains [the heavenly places like a long necked giraffe with teeth], and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.)

God will use Zion (the Man-child and Bride) to thresh the wicked who fight against His people. {Mic.4:11} And now many nations are assembled against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye see [our desireupon Zion. {12} But they know not the thoughts of Jehovah, neither understand they his counsel; for he hath gathered them as the sheaves to the threshing-floor. {13} Arise and threshO daughter of Zion....

Jesus in the Man-child/Davids will burn the chaff (of the old man and the wicked) and save the wheat. {Mat.3:12} whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his threshing-floor; and he will gather his wheat into the garner, but the chaff he will burn up with unquenchable fire.

For the overall dream I received Ezekiel 20. (This chapter is about God's dealing with His rebellious, idolatrous and polluted people with chastisement to bring them back from captivity.)

But the lesson the Father revealed to me about the giraffe was supernatural to me! David is the giraffe in this dream. The Father had my finger to land on {Psa.71:24} My tongue also shall talk of your righteousness all the day long: For they are put to shame, for they are confounded who seek my hurt. (Giraffes have long tongues that can reach high up into the trees.) When I read this, the Father brought to my mind a scripture I had read in Ezekiel just the day before: {Eze.47:12} And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow every tree for food, whose leaf shall not wither, neither shall the fruit thereof fail: it shall bring forth new fruit every month, because the waters thereof issue out of the sanctuary; and the fruit thereof shall be for food and the leaf thereof for healing(Because of their height, representing maturity, giraffes can harvest food that no one else can reach [they can "thresh the mountains of Israel"]; they feed on the high and Heavenly food and feed their young from this Heavenly nourishment. Giraffes find it very hard to feed from the ground while standing up. Standing, of course, is spiritually positive. They have to splay their front legs in an obviously unnatural way to reach the ground. Or they have to lay on the earth which is spiritually negative.)

The Father had given me a dream about a giraffe that represented David and when viewed through the scripture with spiritual eyes to see, the giraffe is a beautiful creature and an instrument of the Father. The giraffe has a long-reaching tongue to bring leaves of healing to the needy saints! (How prophetic, considering the updated giraffe dream almost five years later below.)

But if viewed through fleshly eyes that are deceived by an evil spirit (pride or always having to be right), the giraffe is viewed in a negative light. In the flesh, you see a long-necked creature with spots that strips the leaves from trees. (This is what the other woman saw about her giraffe.)

I hope the brethren will take warning and be diligent to always pray for the truth and desire it above all else.

Man-child and His 12 Giraffes Bring Healing and Revival

Eve Brast - 3/6/2016
(Notes: David | Deb Horton)

I dreamed I was in the spirit floating in the main hallway of an old hospital that looked similar to the hospitals they had in the early 20th century. (The restoration of the ancient and true Church that was a spiritual hospital to heal wounded souls of the damage of their wrong choices.) Everything was white: the walls, the ceilings, the floors, the metal hospital bed frames and head boards, the sheets, and blankets. (The restoration of all things spoken about in Joel 2 brings the purity and holiness represented by this whiteness. Jesus in the Man-child, the Bride and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit will come together to bring about this restoration of this healing for the Church.)

The rooms were all on the right side of the main hallway from the direction I was facing, but would have been to the Man-child's left, from the direction he was coming, as he came down the hall toward me.

These rooms were like small infirmary wards with four to six beds each. There were very tall windows from waist-high all the way up to the high ceilings with brilliant light streaming through them onto the sick people. (The light of God's healing Word permeates the restored Church to bring this healing power.) The brilliant light from the windows was so Heavenly in nature and not at all like earthly sunlight. (Like the ancient Church, the restoration will be open to much more light of the Son, which is the light of the Word and Spirit.) It was white, warm, sweet and softly caressed and surrounded everything I saw. It was impossible for any shadows to form because the light wrapped itself around everything in the space that it occupied. The warmth it provided wasn't a surface warmth like sunlight; it was a permeating warmth.

As I looked down the hall, the "little prince(the Man-child son of the King) from the slaughter dream came around the corner. He had such an air of confidence and purpose and walked in short, quick strides as he was leading his 12 giraffes down the hall. (Representing Jesus in the Man-child's 12 apostles who were raised in his giraffe image to raise up the Church to its former state and beyond.) He never said a word but only gestured his commands to the giraffes with his arms and hands. The ceilings were so high that the giraffes only had to lower their heads a little to go into the different infirmary wards. I wondered what the giraffes were going to do.

Deb Horton: A giraffe is the tallest living terrestrial animal (representing the most mature and Heavenly-minded) and the largest ruminant; i.e., it chews the cud. (Representing those who meditate on God's Word day and night.) There are nine subspecies and 9 is the number of the fruit of the Spirit. They primarily eat acacia leaves and acacia wood was used in constructing the Tabernacle. (Digesting the Word, the material of the wilderness tabernacle of God's people makes one a giraffe.) A giraffe can run through thorn bushes without its thick skin being punctured; i.e., it is untouched by the curse.

Some idioms that can apply are "to stick your neck out" or "don't stick your neck out too far" as in "to take a risk"; "put your neck on the line" again as in "to expose oneself to danger" or "put oneself in a vulnerable position"; "to be up to one's neck" as in "being overburdened"; "neck and neck" as in “running even or very close"; and "to win by a neck" meaning "by a small margin". (Like this repetition of history, the early Man-child and His 12 apostles all stuck their neck out, putting themselves at risk for souls and died the death of the cross for it. The factious were always the crucifiers.)

Then I noticed that they were carrying something that was brilliant green in their mouths. I then had a vision in the dream of the brown paper bag of herbs and leaves, that Don (meaning "world ruler") had received from Michael Hare's garden, in Merlene's dream(The brown paper bag represents the natural life of God's servants, which is biodegradable, carrying that which is much more valuable, the fruits of the eternal life of the Word. Representing the fruits of Michael's labors for the saints. Michael means "Who is like God" i.e., those who receive the fruits of those who are like God will be world rulers, as the scripture says. {Rev.5:9} And they sing a new song, saying, Worthy art thou to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou was slain, and didst purchase unto God with thy blood men of every tribeand tongueand peopleand nation, {10} and madest them to be unto our God a kingdom and priestsand they reign upon earth.)

The bag was fully opened up and its edges were rolled down outwardly. It came toward me and stopped about a foot from my face. The color of these herbs and leaves was so brilliant that it popped out at me as if it were 3D color or something. It was a color that seemed alive and moving or sparkling. {Heb.4:12} For the word of God is livingand active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and quick to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart. I've never seen that color of green here on earth before. (Green represents life. {Joh.10:10} The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.)

When the vision of the bag ended, I saw each of the giraffes go to the different hospital beds and bend their long necks down and feed all the sick people the herbs and leaves from Michael's garden by dropping them into their mouths. As the sick people ate the healing herbs and leaves, they became alert and coherent and completely overjoyed and amazed at the healing transformation they had received. (And so it will be when the backslidden people of God receive the healing power of the true Word and Spirit of God.) They began laughing and crying and praising the Lord as they raised up from the hospital beds and let the light from the windows completely envelope them. Then I woke up. (They now stood in the light of God's Word as an army to conquer the Harlot and Beast in the people.) {Eze.47:12} And by the river (of living waters of God's Word) upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow every tree for food, whose leaf shall not wither, neither shall the fruit thereof fail: it shall bring forth new fruit every month, because the waters thereof issue out of the sanctuary; and the fruit thereof shall be for food and the leaf thereof for healing{Mal.4:2} But unto you that fear my name shall the sun of righteousness arise with healing in its wings; and ye shall go forth, and gambol as calves of the stall. See the sign of the sun with healing wings.

Revival Beginning at UBM
Charlie Smith - 12/12/12
(David's notes in red)

Notice the date of this dream: 12/12/12.

In the early hours of the morning, the Lord gave me this dream. In it, suddenly, I appeared in a large room where I saw brother David (representing the David Man-child reformers) and about 10 or 12 brethren standing around. (I asked the Lord if this was 12 and got a yes, which fits with Jesus and his 12 when revival began then.)  I knew David but his features had changed some. I mean, he really looked great. I could really see God in the man like I never had before. (David here is a type of the Man-child ministry which will start this revival, just as Jesus, the Son of David, did in His time. The things that have been are the things that will be.) 

And I knew him but the other brethren I did not recognize, although I really knew who they were. As I stood looking, a man came over to me and He was the Lord! The brethren were being taught how to minister to the needs of the people. I believe brother David walked across the room to pray for a man who came for healing. And he stood before the man and said, "Be healed", and the man was healed instantly. David turned and walked back to the other side of the room. (God's power is made perfect in man's weakness, so that no flesh can glory.) The brethren, as well as myself, were amazed that the man was healed and we started praising God and giving thanks.

As we rejoiced, another man came forward for healing. I believe the man was blind. One of the brethren came forth and laid hands on the man's head, saying, "Receive your sight". And the man cried out, "I'm healed and I can see!" Other people in the room who were in need came forth immediately, some with missing or deformed limbs, twisted bodies, crippled, all such of humanity that was so pitiful; they came up and every one of them were healed instantly. 

I said, "Oh, God, how is it that everyone was healed instantly, so fast, so easily? Some had hands laid on them and others did not, but they were all healed". The Lord smiled and said, "You could not see". The Lord opened my spiritual eyes and said, "Now look". And He showed me again the part where David said to the man, "Be healed". This time I could see the words "Be healed" coming out of David's mouth, like a mist, and entering into the man. And as the word went into the man, he was instantly healed. 

I received a few scriptures that go with this dream: (Isa.55:11) So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth. It shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please; and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Jer.1:12) I watch over my word to perform it(Eze.12:25) For I am Jehovah and I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall be performed. (Rom.10:8) The word is nigh thee, in thy mouth and in thy heart. And I was still wondering about the mist that I saw and I got (Joh.6:63) The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life. So I understood, like Jesus spoke the Word and it came to pass, so did these brethren operate on that level.

Then there was a scene change. This time in a different, larger room, David and about 100 or more other brethren were gathered together. The brethren were being taught how to minister and were then sent forth. They went forth preaching the Word and healing the sick everywhere. The brethren covered much of this area. You couldn't go anywhere without seeing these brethren. 

And then the scene quickly changed again and we were at another place outside. It was a large, grassy area with parking nearby, but I don't know where it was. Brother David and maybe as many as 500 brethren were gathered together and crowds of people were coming from everywhere. It looked like thousands or even hundreds of thousands were coming. The meetings ran day and night. One night, all the people saw a pillar of fire burning in our midst. They were being drawn by the Lord and it definitely was a holy move of God. So many saints were now coming together.

Again, the scene quickly changed and I was lifted up, looking down on the earth, and I saw the saints running through all the earth, spreading the gospel and the light shining all over the earth. I think what I saw was a revival to prepare the saints to manifest sons of God in the earth to do the will of the Father. I also believe that this is a revival for the Man-child because every one of those scenes David and the brethren were gathered but they were being taught how to minister the Word and heal the sick. 

And I noticed that everything was on a higher level than what we're used to now. They didn't spend a lot of time, a lot of words when they prayed; they just commanded it and it was immediately done. And when they gave the Gospel, they didn't have to stand there for hours trying to nail a point down. It was just like the glory of the Lord fell. When these brethren got around people out here on the streets to witness, the glory of the Lord was so strong that they just automatically fell down and cried, "Save me!"

This was definitely a sign to us all that God's getting ready to do something wonderful here. I'm just like my brothers and sisters here. I want to be a part of it because I know God's going to do a fantastic work here and it's going to spread worldwide because I saw the lights cover the whole earth. I don't know when this is going to happen but I know it will. Amen.

We are informed by the Lord in many more dreams and scriptures that there is coming a great revival here and across the country and world. It will be in the midst of darkness and turmoil and many will come out of darkness. {Isa.60:1} Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of Jehovah is risen upon thee. {2} For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Jehovah will arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. {3} And nations shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. {4} Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: they all gather themselves together, they come to thee; thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be carried in the arms. {5} Then thou shalt see and be radiant, and thy heart shall thrill and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned unto thee, the wealth of the nations shall come unto thee.

We have a part in this. The principalities and powers of darkness have been put under our feet but we must fight the good fight of the faith and cast them down from over UBM and this area and the U.S. {Luk.10:18} And he said unto them, I beheld Satan fallen as lightning from heaven. {19} Behold, I have given you authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall in any wise hurt you. {20} Nevertheless in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.

Let us have fasting and prayer and praise meetings and confess our sins and cast down these powers. Let us decree freedom from bondage and darkness. I received this a few days ago: {Job 22:28} Thou shalt also decree a thingand it shall be established unto thee; And light shall shine upon thy ways. {29} When they cast [thee] down, thou shalt say, [There islifting up; And the humble person he will save. {30} He will deliver [even] him that is not innocent: Yea, he shall be delivered through the cleanness of thy hands.

Overcoming Thoughts and Words

Debbie Horton - 9/13/21 (David’s notes in red)

I dreamed early this morning that I was fighting the god Ares.   

(According to Mythopedia.com in Greek Mythology Ares was the son of Zeus and Hera and one of the twelve chief Olympian deities. Ares was the god of rage, terror, and violence(The more we study this spirit the more we recognize it as a spirit of faction.) Known as the “shield-piercing” and “city-sacking,” god, he was often portrayed in the midst of battle. Though he was often portrayed as the all-encompassing god of war, Ares traditionally represented only the most brutal, impulsive, and unrestrained aspects of combat(These people under these demons never quit fighting. Isa 48:22  There is no peace, saith Jehovah, to the wicked.)

Ares’ impulsiveness, temper, and eagerness to cause wanton destruction made him perhaps the least appreciated of the Olympians. 

The name of the god “Ares” came most immediately from the word ‘are', which in the ancient Greek means “bane,” “ruin,” and “curse” or “imprecation.” (The factious never cease to curse others so they reap what they sow. Psa 109:17  Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him; And he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him.

In the Mycenaean Greek, it was used in the form 'a-re'. This word also formed the basis of the Sanskrit word irasya, meaning “ill-will,” and it survived to the present day in English words such as “ire,” and “irate.”) (This is the demon of faction in Government and Church.)

Back to Deb’s dream: Ares was standing motionless in full battle gear and looking straight ahead, but everything was pitch black except for him. He was all I saw. (This spirit doesn’t have to do anything but be present because his host lives in gross darkness and does his dirty work for him.) 

I walked around behind him and realized that he seemed to be frozen in something like glass, although you couldn't see the glass, maybe the image was just all made out of glass(The Holy Spirit makes things that are transparent or invisible to our natural eyes visible so that we know how to wage spiritual warfare against our enemies, so do so saints.)

I took my sword, which seemed clunky and had a weird sort of bubbly, dull, gray finish on it, and slammed it into the center back of Ares with all my might like a sledge hammer. That's when the frozen-in-glass image began to crack. I hit it again and again, on the right and on the left. (When our sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, is dull and in disrepair because of neglect, it takes much longer to defeat our enemies. Ecl. 10:10 If the iron be blunt, and one do not whet the edgethen must he put to more strength: but wisdom is profitable to direct.)

Pieces began to fall to the ground. I kept slugging at it until most of the bottom half had fallen apart and the top half of the image was finally starting to crack. How it was still standing without the bottom to hold it up, I have no idea. Then I woke up. (We must come against this railing, angry, critical spirit that makes war against the saints and cut it off at the knees so that it doesn’t have any power over lives any longer. The Word of God says that Love is the greatest of all. Love conquers all. 

1 Co. 13:1-13  If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 And if I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profiteth me nothing. 4 Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not provoked, taketh not account of evil; 6 rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with the truth; 7 beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Love never faileth…13 But now abideth faith, hope, love, these three; and the greatest of these is love.)

Policing Our Thoughts

Andrew Gelinas - 8/15/21 (David’s notes in red)

In my dream, I was reclining on my parents bed(Representing abiding in the continual rest that God commanded our forefathers in our New Testament Covenant.) My mother suggested I do a little fishing. As I thought about fishing, my parents bedroom expanded into a vast hanger-like space, similar to an indoor water park(Andrew’s mother represents the original Church and the Good News of the Gospel that we heard from the beginning. The water is the word, which is what we go fishing for souls with.)

Now I was standing with my bare feet on the sand of an indoor beach. (God promised Abraham that He would multiply his descendants as the sands of the sea. We are Abraham’s descendants when we walk by faith.) I cast my line out a good distance, and it was only a short moment before I felt something on the line. At first, it felt like it was only a hand-sized runt of a fish(As we will see, this runt of a fish turns out to be an empty Police boat which I believe represents the absence of Policing our thoughts and controlling our tongues.) 

But right as a wave started to form way out where my line was, I thought for a second that the little fish had locked itself into some rocks when my pole began bending almost to the point of snapping. (When we don’t police our thoughts or we get tangled up with factious slanderers, then the waves come and make our battles harder to fight. The hidden rocks could represent what is described in Jude 1:4  For there are certain men crept in privily, even they who were of old written of beforehand unto this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ… 

Yet in like manner these also in their dreamings defile the flesh, and set at nought dominion, and rail at dignities… 10 But these rail at whatsoever things they know not: and what they understand naturally, like the creatures without reason, in these things are they destroyed. 11 Woe unto them! For they went in the way of Cain, and ran riotously in the error of Balaam for hire, and perished in the gainsaying of Korah. (They are bribed by the pleasures of the flesh to do wrong.) 12 These are they who are hidden rocks in your love-feasts when they feast with you... clouds without water, carried along by winds; autumn leaves without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; 13 Wild waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the blackness of darkness hath been reserved forever.)

I remember thinking it was a miracle the line wasn’t breaking. I soon realized my line wasn’t snagged on a rock or log at all when it began to race from right to left with fierce strength and agility(Our thoughts affect our mouths. Racing from right to left with fierce strength and agility reminds me of a tongue wagging out of control.) Then, I felt the strong sensation that if I didn’t plant my feet firmly enough into the sand, that I was going to be dragged into the surf by this thing(If we don’t get our feet firmly planted in the Promises in the Word of God and have the faith of Abraham which makes us a part of his seed like the sand of the sea, then our tongues will drag us under the curse represented by the waters.) 

So I quickly leaned back as I dug my heals into the sand as deep as I could get them. Then, I committed myself wholeheartedly to landing whatever it was that I had on the other end of the line. (We must be wholeheartedly committed to obeying the Word and quit wavering back and forth with fear, uncertainty, doubt and unbelief by being firmly planted in the Word. This allows us to police our thoughts and ‘land' or ground our tongues from speaking curses on ourselves or others around us.)

As the fight went on for a short while, I could just make out the shadowy silhouette of a huge shark-like fish scuttling just beneath the surface of a large wave. It looked to be at minimum twenty feet in length(20 Represents Judgment multiplied. 10 x 2 = 20.  2 is a number that multiplies but also represents division. The shark, like factious predator people, multiply division with their tongues.)  

Just as I was beginning to feel the slightest sense of dread about the thought of continuing to reel this beast in, it suddenly burst over the peek of the wave and settled on the calm surface a few yards off shore from me. Only, it was no Moby Dick, or Jaws, but an empty police speed boat(So this predatory large mouthed beast is really the unmanned police boat. This un-manned police speed boat again represents the trouble we get ourselves into when we lose our awareness and ability to police our thoughts and reel in our tongues to tame them. Our flesh man turns into a beast and puts up an awful fight when we allow vain imaginations to overtake our minds and our mouths. James 3:2-11 For in many things we all stumble. If any stumbleth not in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also 3 Now if we put the horses bridles into their mouths that they may obey us, we turn about their whole body also. 

4 Behold, the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, are yet turned about by a very small rudder, whither the impulse of the steersman willeth. 5 So the tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire! 6 And the tongue is a fire: the world of iniquity among our members is the tongue, which defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the wheel of nature, and is set on fire by hell. 7 For every kind of beasts and birds, of creeping things and things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed by mankind. 8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is a restless evil, it is full of deadly poison. 9 Therewith bless we the Lord and Father; and therewith curse we men, who are made after the likeness of God: 10 out of the same mouth cometh forth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. 11 Doth the fountain send forth from the same opening sweet water and bitter?)

I stood there perplexed for a moment. Then I thought that I should call 911 to let them know what I’d found. Before I could even dial 9 on my flip phone, a police officer appeared walking my way on the beach to my left. He was very grateful that I had found one of their boats, and said something like “These things keep turning up everywhere.” Then I woke up. (Many lose their policing abilities over their minds and then mouths. In this case finding the boat and putting it back under the authority of the police brings one back under the authority of God, who provides for us the fulfillment of the promises.)

UBM: Yellow Birds on a Wire

Eve Brast - 9/20/21 (David’s notes in red)

I dreamed that all of us from UBM were gathered together in one place. (Representing unity in the Spirit.) Michael, whose name means: “Who is like God?” (Representing God our Heavenly Father.) was going around and coordinating all the details for our trip into the wilderness. (This represents the 7 year tribulation period that we are about to enter into.) 

He was going around to different people in our group and making sure they were ready for the trip. He was like a coach going around to all his players asking them if they were ready for the game and clapping his hands and encouraging us and getting us all stoked for the event. 

I was standing in a circle with everyone and all my belongings were packed in boxes about 10 feet behind me. (This represents forgetting those things which are behind and being justified by faith. Php 3:13-14 Brethren, I could not myself yet to have laid hold: but one thing I do, forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, 14 I press on toward the goal unto the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.) 

I saw that many of the brethren were all sitting around in small groups of families or friends on top of their baggage and bedding. (The baggage and bedding could represent a mixture of being in the rest but still sitting on some baggage from the past that needs to be put behind us. ) 

This room was without walls. (Without walls represents transparency, nothing to hide, all sins confessed. Vanessa said this room without walls reminded her of Est. 9:19 Therefore do the Jews of the villages, that dwell in the unwalled towns, make the fourteenth day of the month Adar a day of gladness and feasting, and a good day, and of sending portions one to another. This day was a victory over the factious beasts who threatened them.) 

This room had royal blue, textured carpet that had tiny, little, white pieces of paper or trash that I knew would have to be vacuumed up before we left for the wilderness trip. (Representing that there is a little cleaning up for us left to do before Jesus, in the Man-child, returns to lead us into the wilderness tribulation.)

Michael came over to me and asked if I was ready to go. I said, “Yes. I’ve got everything packed up behind me here and I’m ready to go.” (The Bride is ready now, her baggage behind her, but some others are not ready.)

Then I looked over to my right and upwards and saw a vision of us all as pale, yellow swallows with white bellies and long tails like swallows have. (The yellow coat represents putting on the works of Jesus. The white bellies or breasts represent the breastplate of righteousness.)

We were all sitting uniformly and equidistant apart from one another (Representing military type discipline and respecting one anothers space.) We were on 3 power lines or communications cables that were strung between two old, wooden telephone poles. (The 3 power lines represent the power of the Father, the Son, and His Holy Spirit indwelling us. The old telephone poles represent the original word of the gospels; the Word that we heard from the beginning. (The telephone poles were also our boundaries, which are the Word.) Our power comes when we communicate the Word of God between each other and others.) 

In the dream I was encouraged by this vision but thought, “Why are we so pale?” (The Bride does not go into the wilderness with 100 fold fruit which is Sun/Son glory. They are close to 60 fold fruit whitch is moon glory, which is pale. The Man-child reformers job is to raise them to Son glory.)

Then I suddenly received a call from my oldest son, Noah, on my cell phone and I asked him, “What’s going on?” He replied, “I’m packed but I’m not ready to go yet because I have the Mumps, so I’ll be delayed.” I was disappointed because I thought that we would be able to leave at any moment.  (Eve's first born son, Noah, represents the first fruits people who are born of the Bride body. Those whom the bride is nurturing are slower to be prepared.)  

Noah having the Mumps means that there is still an infection in their mouths and throats representing their words spoken contrary to the Word and promises of God. We have to align our thoughts and our mouths with God in agreement and faith with His promises for us or we will not survive the wilderness just as the Israelites didn’t in the Old Testament.) (God prepares those whose words are purified by a sacrificial life of denying our own words for His. Isa 6:5  Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of hosts. 6 Then flew one of the seraphim unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7  and he touched my mouth with it, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin forgiven.)

Then a vision of a black woman who was sick with a swollen neck appeared. She looked weary and defeated. (Representing those who walk in darkness. Pro 13:15  Good understanding giveth favor; But the way of the transgressor is hard.)  She was standing in front of me and to my right but was standing crooked and leaning to her left. Then I woke up. (What came to me was Jer. 12:5  If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and though in a land of peace thou art secure, yet how wilt thou do in the pride of the Jordan?)

I asked for a word by faith at random for the dream and my finger was on 'throat' in Psalm 5:9. (Mumps is an infection of the throat.)  For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; Their inward part is very wickedness; Their throat is an open sepulchre; They flatter with their tongue. (The Bible commands us to be patient in tribulation, Rom. 12:12 rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing steadfastly in prayer… If we aren’t doing these things when we let our flesh rule us with complaining and self-pity.)

Without policing our thoughts our tongue speaks things that bring judgment and curses on our lives and our families.

Rom 12:2  And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Luk 6:45  The good man out of the good treasure of his heart (or thoughts) bringeth forth that which is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Jas 1:26  If any man thinketh himself to be religious, while he bridleth not his tongue but deceiveth his heart, this man's religion is vain.

Pro 18:21  Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Mat 12:36  And I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.

Jas 3:5  So the tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire! 6  And the tongue is a fire: the world of iniquity among our members is the tongue, which defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the wheel of nature, and is set on fire by hell. … 8 but the tongue can no man tame; it is a restless evil, it is full of deadly poison.

1Pe 3:10  For, He that would love life, And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips that they speak no guile:

 We’re not Playing the Enemies' Game

Claire Pienaar 9/16/21 (David’s notes in red)

I dreamed I was in an indoor arena, and I was standing on a purple tennis court. (I think the purple tennis court represents the royal court (in Heavenly places). Our Father has ordained every trial for us, so that we can learn our lessons and be refined).

There was a separate box drawn on the right side, outside of the tennis court, on my side of the court. This is where I was supposed to stand during this supposed match or practice. I was inside the little box outside the actual tennis court lines. (This represents our protection from the enemy’s arrows; as long as we stay in our boundaries of having clean hearts and walking in the light He’s given us. We do not fight in the flesh, or return any of the “balls” that are sent to pummel us in the flesh. Vengeance is reserved for God alone.)

My children’s tennis coach picked up his racquet and started pummeling me with tennis balls. He was aiming them directly at me. This was no game. His intention was to hurt me. (The demons will often times use the spiritually stunted and immature to stir up strife, division and confusion to try to hurt the corporate body of the Bride. Many of these are people who refused to go on any further in the truth and the light of God’s Word and so they fell into faction and slander.) (Riaan: The coach represents factious and slanderous spirits that use the old man who is very good and proficient at fighting in the flesh, he has been doing it for years!)

I’ve never been much of a tennis player in the natural, but in the dream I was equally useless. I could not return a single ball. It would have looked like it was tremendously unfair as I could not leave my little blocked off area on the right, but he was allowed full access to the entire court. (It seems unfair to our flesh when we make it submit and obey the Word of God, but ultimately this is our strength in the battle for if we resist not the evil God will repay them for He says in Rom 12:19  Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath of God: for it is written, Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord. Mat 5:39  but I say unto you, Resist not him that is evil: but whosoever smiteth thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. Jas 5:6  Ye have condemned, ye have killed the righteous one; he doth not resist you. Mat 5:44  but I say unto you, Love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you.) 

Riaan was cheering me on, but not in the way one would think. He seemed to be building me up without telling me to “try harder” or “hit the ball”. (The old man would want us to fight back with all our might, but our spirit man builds us up with meekness, humility, patience and self-control). (Jude 1:17-23 But ye, beloved, remember ye the words which have been spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; 18 That they said to you, In the last time there shall be mockers, walking after their own ungodly lusts. 19 These are they who make separations, sensual, having not the Spirit. 20 But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And on some have mercy, who are in doubt; 23 and some save, snatching them out of the fire; and on some have mercy with fear; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.)

I am left-handed and my arm was so weak in the dream I could hardly lift it. (His power is made perfect in our weakness.) I told Riaan, “I have no desire to compete with him. I don’t even like this game”. I put my racquet down, and then we got ready to leave. (For those who are used to fighting in the spirit, we don’t have any real-world ammunition anyway. Our left arms are weak!) (Riaan: We don't fight with the arm of the flesh. Although the old man is tempting us to fight in the flesh and return his curses to others, but we fight in the Spirit. We must mature so much that the left arm is weak and loses muscle memory so that we can no longer even remember how we used to fight).

To leave this venue, we had to walk through some kind of jungle exhibition. It was basically a hallway that was decorated like a real-life amazon jungle. So we started walking through it. (Riaan: representing the wilderness of trials).

There was a green snake on the right-hand side of the corridor, pinned like it was dead, but as we walked past it, it flared its fangs at us. We didn’t even blink and just kept on walking. (Riaan: Just keep walking in faith and resist the enemy's lies.)

Then we saw two more snakes, but they were nothing to us. As I walked, I thought “Oh. Something’s bitten me”. It was a fat python on the floor and it sunk its fangs into the left tip of the toe of my boot. (But many pythons don’t have fangs so this represents a lying symptom.) (Ball pythons are not venomous,  but they have up to 100 inward-facing teeth – four rows on top and two rows on the bottom. A Ball python’s teeth are very sharp. They are designed to capture and restrain their prey(Wearing boots: represents being ready for action, for fighting in the Spirit, which means sharing the Gospel of peace.)

I waited and thought, “Mmm. I’ll just continue on.” I did not exhibit any symptoms and it was like nothing had happened. All of this happened during the first 1/3 of the exhibition. The remainder seemed to be “smooth sailing”, as they say. (When were don’t give into fear and doubt those demons give up trying to ensnare us and our walk is much smoother and we are not tossed about any longer because we are firmly planted on the Rock which is Christ.)

We walked out of the exhibition where the entrance and exit met at the same point. I saw two young girls who were terrified to go into the jungle corridor exhibition. I told them, “If you have no fear, you’ll be more than fine. But be warned, there are snakes and spiders”. They squealed and shrieked with fear, and I just shook my head to get the noise out. Then I woke up. (Riaan: This walk cannot be attempted with fear, it must be done in faith.)

CHAPTER ONE: Authority Over the Curse

We have been given authority over the curse and we must be careful what we do with it. “Authority” is “the right to use power.” Adam was given this authority and he lost it. (Rom.6:16) Know ye not, that to whom ye present yourselves [as] servants unto obedience, his servants ye are whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 

The Bible teaches that the Lord Jesus was the “last Adam” Who came to restore that authority and we can tell by the awesome promises that He has given unto us. (1Co.15:45) So also it is written, The first man Adam became a living soul. The last Adam [became] a life-giving spirit. In fact, to most people, these promises are too good to be true and they say things like, “they had to be talking about someone else”; “we don’t experience them”; or “they were made toward the apostles in the past.” But, the truth is, He’s talking to you and me. 

The reason I know is because as I believed the promises, I started entering into them, as have many others. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. There is a saying that goes, “The guy with an experience is never at the mercy of the guy with an argument.” Folks, there are multitudes of Christians who are experiencing the authority and power of God and they are rejoicing. There are still people out there denying it, but it’s “to him that believeth” (Mar.9:23). (Heb.2:5) For not unto angels did he subject the world (Greek: oikoumene, “the inhabited earth”) to come, whereof we speak. Notice our dominion in this verse is not about the “world to come” but the “inhabited earth” here and now. In other words, God gave Adam and his seed authority. According to Psalm 8:6-8, he was given authority over all the works of God’s hands, over all of creation. 

So Jesus is not called the “last Adam” for nothing. He is the Father of the born-again creation and came to give us authority. What I want to go on to show is why we have to be so careful about this authority. (Heb.2:5) But one hath somewhere testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? Or the son of man, that thou visitest him? Don’t be deceived here. “Son of man” is spoken not only toward Jesus; we also are “sons of man.” Jesus merely pointed out that He was the Son of God dwelling in the son of man and we are, too. The Bible says that He was made like unto us in all things. (Heb.2:17) Wherefore it behooved him in all things to be made like unto his brethren…. Jesus came as the Son of God in the son of man. 

When you accept the Word of God into your heart, that Word of God is Jesus Christ (John 1:1-14). He is manifesting more in you the more you accept and believe the Word. Why would God pay attention to us, the little ants that we are? Well, it’s because we are important to God. We are His sons, who represent Him on this earth and He has delegated His authority unto us. (Heb.2:7) Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; Thou crownedst him with glory and honor, And didst set him over the works of thy hands. This authority has been delegated not only to man but also to the Son of man; however, we know that this authority is only for those who are sons of the Son of man, Jesus Christ. Both the first Adam and the last Adam were given this authority. Yes, Adam received authority over the works of God’s Hands, but also Adam’s seed would have received this authority if Adam had not fallen into sin. Since our Lord Jesus didn’t fall into sin, He was able to pass on this authority to those who believe. 

It is very important to believe that you have this authority, but also that you renew your mind with the Word of God so that you know how to use this authority properly. Of course, it is the Word of God that gives you faith to exercise this authority. We are ambassadors of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20), so we are here to exercise this authority, not for us, but for Him, according to His purposes. Many people want to take faith and the power of the Word to indulge their flesh because that’s what they’re interested in, but God is not. We are here to lose our lives in this world and God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Php.4:19). But this is not for the satisfying of our lusts, since God wants our lusts to die. 

(Heb.2:8) Thou didst put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he subjected all things unto him, he left nothing that is not subject to him. But now we see not yet all things subjected to him. We don’t yet see this, but we are coming to the time when God’s people will stand as sons of God and manifest His power. The Word of God will be living in their hearts and that Word is Jesus Christ. He will be doing the works through them. As you put the Word of God in your heart and come into agreement with the Word, it is “Christ in you” that does the works (Colossians 1:27). It is “Christ in you” that lives the Christian life, and so on and so forth. We know this is true, based on what Jesus told us in the Scriptures. (Mat.18:18) Verily I say unto you, What things soever ye shall bind (forbid) on earth shall be bound (forbidden) in heaven; and what things soever ye shall loose (permit) on earth shall be loosed (permitted) in heaven. That’s real authority. 

You probably won’t have faith to do something really strange; most people don’t. So it’s the faith that causes you to be able to exercise the authority. However, quite often, unless you believe that it is something that is God’s will, you won’t have any faith for it. As you see, it’s not really dangerous for God to make statements like these, even though it may appear that way. Most people are not going to exercise faith in the Word, but the people who do will do it because the Word lives in them. If the Word lives in them, then it’s Jesus doing it, and if Jesus is doing it, then He’s doing it according to the will of God. That’s the way it works. God has given us His authority. 

I know that people say, “Well, that was only for the original apostles.” That doesn’t make any sense. (Mar.11:23) Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou taken up and cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that what he saith cometh to pass; he shall have it. “Whosoever” shows that He wasn’t only talking to His disciples and apostles at that time, but that He was talking to all disciples because disciples are the only ones who will take Him seriously and recognize this authority as a gift of faith. Again, Jesus was not only speaking to the apostles and disciples back in His time, but to anyone, from them to us, who believes he can have this authority. 

Is this just a silly statement that no one will ever really take Him up on? No! There have been many people who have commanded their personal mountains and giants out of the way. Multitudes of people have exercised this authority over Satan, over the flesh, over their circumstances and over the curse. God is faithful to stand by His Word, not because we deserve it, but due to His mercy and grace. He has said, According to your faith be it done unto you (Mat.9:29) and Go thy way; as thou hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee (Mat.8:13). “Whosoever” includes you and me and any other believer, so this authority has been put in our hands as sons of the last Adam, and not only given to those disciples in Jesus’ day, as some say. (Mar.16:14) And afterward he was manifested unto the eleven themselves as they sat at meat; and he upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them that had seen him after he was risen. (15) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. (16) He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned. Jesus is referring to the disciples of the disciples. “Disciples” (Greek: mathetes, meaning “learner and follower”) are learners and followers of the Lord. He is our Master, our Lord, our Example, and He is the One Who does the works through us. (Mar.16:17) And these signs shall accompany them that believe: in my name shall they cast out demons; they shall speak with new tongues; (18) they shall take up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 

Now we see that these signs will accompany those who simply believe and not only great apostles. That is authority! Jesus is giving authority to the people who believe these first disciples, or forefathers of Christianity, who wrote these pages to us. He has given us this authority to do good in the name of the Lord. Do you suppose we have this authority also to do evil? Is Satan taking advantage of those who are exercising faith that is not according to the Word? Yes, he is, and he receives his authority from us. All principalities and powers have been put under Jesus (Matthew 28:18), even “his feet” and we are “his body” (Ephesians 1:20-23). We have this authority but it can be negative or positive. For example, when the Lord brought His people out of Egypt and into the wilderness, they continued to speak negatively and exercise their faith in a negative way. Faith is just what you believe. You can believe what God has spoken to you or you can believe the things which you see in the world, but Jesus said, According to your faith be it done unto you (Mat.9:29). Faith is both negative and positive. Even fear is faith; however, it’s faith in the curse, or faith in reverse – having faith in adverse circumstances and in the devil. 

The absolute proof in the world is that what people believe happens to them. Doctors say that approximately 90% and higher of sicknesses are psychosomatic (Greek: psuche, meaning “soul” and soma, meaning “body”). This implies “soul over body” and your soul is your mind, will and emotions. Therefore, your mind, will and emotions are making your body sick. Can I say the doctors are wrong in stating that 90% and higher of sicknesses are psychosomatic? Yes, I can because that number is 100%. What makes people sick is what they believe. In fact, what you believe can kill you. As we saw in Matthew 18:18, you are the one who binds and who looses, and you are the one who creates your own future. You are the one who gives authority to the devil or gives authority unto God. 

Jesus needed authority but when He went to His hometown, he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief (Mat.13:58). They had authority to say no to God and they did; they did not believe in Jesus and His Gospel. They believed in the sickness and the curse and they spoke it. We can believe in the blessings of God and speak the blessings or we can believe in the curse and speak the curse. We will have what we believe because that’s the Word of God. (Num.14:28) Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord, surely as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you: (29) your dead bodies shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, that have murmured against me. They complained to the Lord that they were brought out into the wilderness to die and the Lord heard this too many times. The Lord basically gave them what they said. The Lord still does this today and the Bible declares that He does. 

One of the fruits of a believer is that they believe in their heart and confess with their mouth (Romans 10:10). There are many people who profess to be believers, yet don’t confess their benefits in Christ, so God says what you say is what you will receive. (Num.21:5) And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, and there is no water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. What is “against God”? It’s when God has spoken these awesome promises and we think we know better and continue to agree with the curse. For example, the 10 spies who spoke and agreed with the curse and brought the bad report led to the threats made by God to those who believed those spies. Joshua and Caleb were the only two who brought the good report, in agreement with God’s promises. So, speaking against God can be more subtle than what people might think. When God says you’re healed and you say you’re not, then you will remain sick. When God says He’s taken away your sins but you confess what you see and feel in the world, you are speaking against God. (Num.21:6) And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. 

Once again, what they spoke is what they got. I believe the fiery serpents represent the curse. The cure for this was that God commanded Moses to make a “fiery serpent” out of brass and put it on a pole, and as people got their eyes on the serpent on the pole, they were healed (verse 8). As we know, the cure was Jesus Christ, since He was the One made sin and was crucified on a cross. So we have a cure from the curse but we must confess God to receive this cure. Those who profess Christianity but do not confess the benefits of the Kingdom, so that the curse, which was put upon Jesus, doesn’t come on them, cannot gain the promises in Scripture without faith in those promises. Or, in other words, what we profess must be mixed with faith. (Num.21:7) And the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, because we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. 

When people pray, God is merciful, especially if they believe their prayers. But do you have to continue to live under the curse? Is it necessary, when you can agree with God, to have the “fiery serpents” bite you? These serpents are the curse manifested in so many ways. The serpent is, obviously, also the devil, who is a vessel of dishonor that administers the curse on God’s people, especially when they don’t believe the benefits of God. Jesus told us, According to your faith be it done unto you (Mat.9:29) and Go thy way; as thou hast believed, [so] be it done unto thee (Mat.8:13). You can speak things into coming to pass. If you speak life, you receive life; if you speak death, you receive death. It depends on what you have your faith in. If your faith is in agreement with God’s benefits, then you receive those benefits. If you agree with what is in the world, then you don’t receive God’s benefits and have loosed the devil; you have loosed emissaries to continue to administer the curse on you. Many people are learning this and experiencing what I’m saying. This is nothing new but is the same Gospel which is from the beginning. 

We have to have a renewed mind so that we understand what to believe and what we should speak. Faith can be both positive and negative. (Pro.18:20) A man’s belly shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; With the increase of his lips shall he be satisfied. Would you like your needs to be met because of what you say? We would like our lips to come into agreement with the Word of God and learn more and more to walk in His benefits by confessing Him before men. Jesus is the “High Priest of our confession” (Heb.3:1) and He offers that confession before the Father. As we confess Him before men, He confesses us before the Father (Matthew 10:32). The word “confess” (Greek: homologeo) means “to speak the same as.” There should be an increase in our lips; that is, we should learn more and more to agree with His benefits so we don’t have to continue to live under the curses of this world and give the devil authority over us. 

The devil is motivating many people to turn to God because he doesn’t understand this verse: (Mat.12:25) Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: (26) and if Satan casteth out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then shall his kingdom stand? The thing that he does is just what we need, which is chastening, so we can repent, turn to God and agree with His Word and speak those things that are beneficial. If we believe in our heart and confess with our mouth the curse, then that’s just what we’ll have. But if we believe in our heart and confess the Gospel, the Good News, then that’s what we’ll receive. (Pro.18:21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. 

I remember back in Louisiana, where I came from, there was a church which had a minister who was preaching about death and how it was not to be feared. I know the church and its circumstances; the minister was actually going to show them how simple it was to die. He pulled up a chair, sat down and said it was as simple as going to sleep. He nodded his head and stayed like that for a while, until the pastor got nervous and went up to touch him on his shoulder, and then shook him. He was gone. He talked himself right off of this earth. There are some people who talk themselves right into the grave. Many people die before their time because their faith is to die; their faith is to be cursed and to receive the things that are around them. Their faith is not in what the Lord Jesus has given to them freely. Truly, “death and life are in the power of the tongue.” This is God’s Word and nothing is being taken away or being added to it. We need to agree with God’s benefits to have them and God will supply your every need to do His will, if you learn to agree with Him. 

The tongue doesn’t speak on its own. It gets its direction from your thoughts and the words that are in your mind. We need to watch our tongue so we can correct our mind. That’s one reason the Lord is telling us to be careful with what we say because when we are careful, we are correcting our thoughts. (Mat.12:34) Ye offspring of vipers, how can ye, being evil speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. If we want to speak good things, we need to put good things in our hearts and reject the other things that are there. I am sure that your mouth has spoken things that have slipped out, that you wish you hadn’t said. It’s an automatic thing with some people, but we need to slow down and give the Lord time to correct our thinking. Good people speak good things and bad people speak bad things. In some ways, we are both since we are both son of man and son of God, but we also have authority over that part of us which is still man. The Son of God in us has authority over that man. As the outer man decays, the inner man is renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16). That spiritual man is taking over as we walk by faith and believe more and more of the Word of God and, as we do, more and more of Jesus Himself is being manifested in us and He is taking more and more ground from the enemy. 

(Mat.12:35) The good man out of his good treasure bringeth forth good things: and the evil man out of his evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. Those who get this revelation about the tongue spend much time talking about the tongue, but we must really begin with the heart. We have to repent – change our mind – and believe what the Bible says. Changing your mind and repenting is renewing your mind with what the Word says and agreeing with what it says, but we must do it enough so that it overcomes our natural thinking. Our natural thinking is killing us and all those whose tongues are connected to their natural man. (Mat.12:36) And I say unto you, that every idle (Greek: argos, meaning “unfruitful, barren”) word that men shall speak, they shall give account of in the day of judgment. 

The Lord obviously wants His Word to bear fruit in us, but there are many words that are unfruitful and don’t bear the fruit of Christ in us. Every idle word will bring judgment upon you. The day of judgment is not that day down the road, the corporate judgment, but it is the day of judgment that you come into. Your idle words, unfruitful or vain, will bring you into judgment. Many people have spoken the curse upon themselves, like the Israelites did. They confessed continuously that they would die in the wilderness and it happened. (Mat.12:37) For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. The words that justify are those words spoken in agreement with God. They are words confessing Jesus before God and men, saying what He said and agreeing with what He has taught us in the Word and also by what He put in the disciples to teach us in the Word. We are accounted righteous, or justified, if we agree with God. But if we don’t agree, we fall under judgment, for “by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” If you disagree with God’s Word, it’s like calling Him a liar.

God told the Israelites that He was going to bring them to the Promised Land and they basically claimed that God was a liar and that He brought them to the wilderness to die. They spoke it from their mouth and He finally said, “as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you.” There are a lot of people who don’t make it through the wilderness – what we call the “world” today. (Hos.4:6) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…. They agree with the curse and they receive the curse. It’s what they believe; it is their faith. There are people who feel very self-righteous in believing the curse. They believe they are too humble to be presuming upon God’s goodness to believe what God says is true of them. That’s not humility; that’s foolishness. Those people will receive exactly what they believe. We want to be justified, or accounted righteous, before God. (Pro.23:7) For as he thinketh within himself, so is he…. (Luk.6:45) The good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and the evil [man] out of the evil [treasure] bringeth forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. There is a spring welling up out of every individual and some of those waters are good. The Bible speaks of water as the Word (Ephesians 5:26). 

The dragon also sent forth a stream of water to take away the woman (Revelation 12:15). So, the dragon also has words that he uses to deceive God’s people and the people of the world with. (Joh.7:37) Now on the last day, the great [day] of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. We are to drink waters, or words. (Joh.6:63) It is the spirit that giveth life; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I have spoken unto you are spirit, and are life. The Lord has given us supernatural words that are the promises or benefits that have been given in the Scripture. They are spirit and life. He tells us to drink of these words, which are spirit and life; it’s His water that He gives unto us. (Joh.7:38) He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water. (39) But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were to receive: for the Spirit was not yet [given]; because Jesus was not yet glorified. 

The Scriptures are the words of life, from which the spring comes, and they who believe have them down in their heart and in their thoughts. The Spirit of God brings to our remembrance all things that He has said unto us (John 14:26). Many people have received this anointing whereby the Word of God, these words of life, come gushing forth out of their innermost being. They come forth out of us to meet the situations around us, so that we may share the Gospel with the lost and those speaking against their own life and to exercise authority. So out of you is flowing this river of living water. It’s God’s plan; He wants us to put the Word inside of us. He wants us to not deny any of the Word. He wants us to be justified, or accounted righteous, because of the words that are coming out of us, which will deliver us from destruction. 

When God is seated upon the throne of your heart, where all of your thoughts and words come from, then you have this river of living water. (Rev.22:1) And he showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb, (2) in the midst of the street thereof. And on this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve [manner] of fruits, yielding its fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. In the previous chapter, John speaks about the throne of God in the Temple of God. Where is the Temple of God? We are the Temple of God. God doesn’t dwell in temples made with hands anymore (2 Corinthians 6:16; Acts 17:24). His Throne is in our heart. This “river of water” is coming up across the “tree of life” and coming forth to heal the nations. This is what Jesus did and that’s what He called us to do: Let that river of living water, the words of Almighty God, come forth out of us and bring life to everything around us. 

The “tree of life” is the tongue: (Pro.15:1) A soft answer turneth away wrath; But a grievous word stirreth up anger. (2) The tongue of the wise uttereth knowledge aright; But the mouth of fools poureth out folly. We know that there is negative knowledge, called worldly wisdom, that the world passes on to everyone. Of course, if we don’t have this worldly wisdom, we’re on the outside looking in and the people around us may think we’re crazy. And when we confess God’s blessings before they are seen, the odds are good that people will look at us like we’re crazy. But God will not let us make fools out of ourselves because when we step out by faith in Him, He manifests His goodness. (Pro.15:3) The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Keeping watch upon the evil and the good. What doesn’t come out of your mouth and is not in your actions, He still sees. Not one hair on your head, or one sparrow, falls to the ground without Him knowing (Matthew 10:29,30). Nothing gets by Him and when we proclaim that we are now disciples of Christ, we are walking that crucified life. We’re giving up who we were and taking on what He is, and He expects us to do this. 

However, it is He Who does it in us and we can trust in Him, since it is by grace. (Pro.15:4) A gentle (Hebrew: marpe, meaning “healing”) tongue is a tree of life; But perverseness therein is a breaking of the spirit. Devastation and destruction come from a perverse tongue speaking against God. I would assume an overwhelming majority of what we call Christianity speaks against God every day and thinks nothing of it. They are speaking against His benefits, which we must receive by faith. So we do what God does: we calleth the things that are not, as though they were (Rom.4:17) and we agree with God, even though we don’t see it. This is God’s method of bringing the promises off of the page and into God’s physical creation. He has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly [places] (Eph.1:3); but when we confess, it becomes ours in these physical places around us. And so, this river of living water should be coming over our tongue to give healing to the nations, just like it did with Jesus. 

It’s sad to say that sometimes it’s the old man talking and the river is a polluted river. Of course, we don’t want what the curse brings upon us; we want the benefits of the Kingdom. There is only one way to get these benefits and that is to believe in your heart, where that spring comes from, and to confess with your mouth as that river of living water passes over your tongue to your situations, to the world, to your body, to your children and so on and so forth. This is how it comes to pass. We see that the opposite can also come to pass. (Jas.3:10) Out of the same mouth cometh forth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. (11) Doth the fountain send forth from the same opening sweet [water] and bitter? (12) can a fig tree, my brethren yield olives, or a vine figs? neither [can] salt water yield sweet. 

Many times the problem with our mouth is that a mixture of blessings and curses are coming forth. But with the increase of the lips, we should be growing with the knowledge of God in our heart, speaking and agreeing with this knowledge and denying those things that exalt themselves above the knowledge of God by casting them down (2 Corinthians 10:5). We grow into confessing God’s Word and into righteousness because He imputes righteousness when we agree with His Word. We should be growing into the sweet water, the river of living water coming up from us, and not a mixture of blessing and cursing. (Jas.3:5) So the tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire! People think that the things that they say are insignificant and that they don’t count. Not so before God and, I might say, not so before the devil because he gets his authority from you. 

Remember, the devil doesn’t have authority, except what we give him. Jesus said that all authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth (Mat.28:18). And He put that authority under His feet and gave Himself to be the head of the body, the Church. (Eph.1:20) Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and made him to sit at his right hand in the heavenly [places], (21) far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: (22) and he put all things in subjection under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church, (23) which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. Who has the authority? Every principality and power has been put under the feet of Jesus, which is the lowest member of His “body,” so we have the authority. The devil has to get us to give him authority and, of course, he works constantly to sow the seed of the world into our hearts. 

That is what a harlot is – a person who receives the seed of the world in their heart, rather than the seed of the Kingdom. (Jas.5:6) And the tongue is a fire: the world of iniquity among our members is the tongue, which defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the wheel of nature, and is set on fire by hell. The tongue defiles the body when our faith is in what we are told by the world and by the devil; therefore, it is what we believe and what comes out of our mouth that defiles the body. The “wheel of nature” or, as otherwise interpreted, “cycle of life,” is sowing and reaping. You speak things that are a curse and cursing comes upon you. You speak things that are a blessing and a blessing comes upon you. There is a cycle that tends to be upward and a cycle that tends to be downward. (Jas.5:7) For every kind of beasts and birds, of creeping things and things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed by mankind: (8) but the tongue can no man tame; [it is] a restless evil, [it is] full of deadly poison. 

When one disagrees with the Word of God, it is a “deadly poison” and no man can tame the tongue, but the Lord can. The Lord has tamed the tongue and will tame the tongue. (Mat.15:11) Not that which entereth into the mouth defileth the man; but that which proceedeth out of the mouth, this defileth the man. It is what we say that defiles us and not what we eat; therefore, the curse comes because you agree with it and believe in it. However, when we believe the Word of God and the benefits of the Kingdom, we are accounted righteous and we are no longer under the curse because Jesus became a curse for us. Therefore, it’s what you believe and what you say that keeps you, as a Christian, under the curse or in God’s blessings. (Mat.15:18) But the things which proceed out of the mouth come forth out of the heart; and they defile the man. (19) For out of the heart come forth evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, railings. The spring comes forth from us. For instance, the germs around us do not defile us because we have to give the devil, or the curse, authority; however, the Scriptures say that they have no authority over us because Jesus has already overcome the world and He has borne the curse. (Gal.3:13) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us; for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: (14) that upon the Gentiles might come the blessing of Abraham in Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. 

Everything that you consider detrimental to your life in this world, both physically and mentally, as well as emotionally, are all considered the curse, but Jesus bore the curse upon Himself so we could be free. But to walk in this freedom, we need to confess Him before men and agree with His Word. He asked, Why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? (Luk.6:46). He was our example and, if we are a disciple, we are a learner and a follower of Him. We study Him in order to know what we should say, do and so on. People are defiled by what comes out of their heart, out of their thoughts, in words and over their tongue. They are made unclean and are cursed but God has a cure. 

We discussed the serpent on the pole, which represents Jesus Christ, Who gave His life for us, so we can see that Jesus is the cure. (Exo.15:22) And Moses led Israel onward from the Red Sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. (23) And when they came to Marah (Hebrew: “bitterness”), they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. (24) And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? (25) And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord showed him a tree, and he cast it into the waters, and the waters were made sweet. There he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them. Remember what water is; God likes to hide parables in His Word and there is one in here. We read about the bitter and sweet waters, which represent thoughts and words coming out of your heart and over your tongue to the world around you. In this Scripture, the people murmured, or spoke, against Moses, who was led by God. So, in essence, they spoke against God. 

We have this miserable problem. We say things because of our old nature and they’re out before we can bring them back. We need a sacrifice because we need some way to conquer this tongue, since man cannot conquer it. The tree represents the Cross. What Jesus did was to make reconciliation. He gave us deliverance from this tongue, from this curse and from this old life. So now we reckon the old man to be dead and the new man to be alive, on account of what Jesus did for us on the Cross. He gave us death, burial and resurrection. Now we understand that the first thing that we need to do to turn our tongues around is to repent – change our mind – and agree with what the Word is saying about our circumstances, our families and those we have authority over, and to speak accordingly. The Bible tells us in Romans 12:1 that we present our bodies as living sacrifices, so we take part in the Cross, as well.

End of Part:1

CHAPTER TWO: Agreeing With God

We have discovered that coming out of the heart of man is a spring and its waters can be bitter or sweet. We also discovered that the sweet waters are the words we speak in agreement with the Word of God and are a blessing to the people around us. They are a healing to the nations and they spring forth out of our thoughts and hearts, and over our tongues to become words of life. Lastly, we learned that if we want to bring our tongue into submission, we must first repent – change our mind – and agree with the Word of God. In other words, we must ‘reprogram our computer.’ (Mat.12:36) And I say unto you, that every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. In this Scripture, the Greek word for “idle” means “barren or unfruitful.” It is also used in James 2:20, which states that faith apart from works is barren. 

What is the fruitful work of one who believes? The most important work of one who believes is what they say. (Jas.2:18) … I by my works will show thee [my] faith. There are people who say they have faith, but their works don’t agree with this. That is not impressive to God, it doesn’t save and it won’t deliver. Remember, we give account in a day of judgment because of those idle, or unfruitful, words that don’t bear the fruit of Christ in you, the hope of glory (Col.1:27). (Mat.12:37) For by thy words thou shalt be justified (“accounted righteous”), and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. This should make us fear the Lord because God is telling us that what we say is very important and He will hold us accountable for our words. 

In some cases, if we are paying attention to what we are saying, as we read the Scriptures, we become aware that we are speaking contrary to what God is saying. We must understand that this contrariness is coming out of our heart and that we need to repent. Watching your tongue is watching your heart because your heart is where it’s coming from. (Rom.3:4) God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. It is words that bring us into judgment, but it’s righteous words that are in agreement with God that cause us to prevail when we come into judgment because they justify us. These things should make us fear the Lord, depart from evil and train our lips. (Pro.18:21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. This can be just your death and life or the death and life of the people around you, as we saw in the last chapter. 

The tongue can bear either fruit unto death or fruit unto life. We are all going to prove whether we love death or whether we love life. We are going to eat the fruit of the one that we love. If you love life, you will obviously pay very close attention to what you say and you will begin to train your tongue to come into agreement with the Word of God. Our minds are like computers; they need to be programmed so that what we see on the monitor reflects something that is beneficial and a blessing. A computer by itself is worthless without a monitor. Basically, God is saying that the monitor is the tongue. It reflects what is inside the programming. If you say that you’re a believer and everything you say is contrary to what God says, then that’s a lie. We need to reprogram this computer so what comes out of our mouth is the Word of the Lord and is effectual in changing us and the world around us. 

The Bible says the tongue is like a rudder that is able to turn the whole body (James 3:4-8). It’s a very powerful tool that God has given us. (Rom.12:1) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, [which is] your spiritual service. Obviously, we came here to die, just as our Lord Jesus did. It’s not necessarily physical, but it is spiritual, the death of the old man. It’s the death of the old tongue, too. That old tongue is a very destructive, powerful force that burns down great forests, according to James 3:5(Rom.12:2) And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God. We must spend time in the Word of God so we can program it into our hearts and we have to put it in there often enough so that it begins to overcome what is already there. Some people touch the Word of God once or twice a week, but they don’t really put it in their hearts and minds enough to empower them to overcome and to bring it back to their remembrance. Wouldn’t you like to show forth what the perfect will of God is in your life? It’s not going to happen without renewing your mind. You will never walk in perfection without the renewing of your mind. 

According to James, it’s not just the mind, but what comes out of the mind that matters. In other words, it’s not just the computer but the monitor as well. (Jas.3:2) For in many things we all stumble. If any stumbleth not in word, the same is a perfect man, able to bridle the whole body also. We have just discovered in Romans 12 that if we transform our mind, we will prove what the perfect will of God is in our life. We walk in the perfect will of God because we reprogram our computer, but James is telling us that faith without works is dead (James 2:17,26). Many people worry how they’re going to bridle this body or how they’ll bring it under submission to the Lord. If you’re worrying about that, then you don’t really have the Gospel down in your heart because the Lord has already taken care of it for you. All we need to do is exercise faith in what He has already done. 

(Jas.3:3) Now if we put the horses’ bridles into their mouths that they may obey us, we turn about their whole body also. If you have ever ridden horses, it’s amazing what that bit will do to make that horse turn. This great big horse is under the control of a little man. God is saying the tongue will do the same thing with your life. (Jas.3:4) Behold, the ships also, though they are so great and are driven by rough winds, are yet turned about by a very small rudder, whither the impulse of the steersman willeth. (5) So the tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how small a fire! How do we steer this vessel with the tongue? First, we need the will to do this. He whom the Son sets free is free indeed (John 8:36). The Lord sets us free by giving us His will. Nothing can restrain God’s will. He does what He wants to in the armies of Heaven and upon the earth (Daniel 4:35).

We are frustrated because we have a schizophrenic will. His will is fighting in us against our will, but as we walk by faith, He works in us both to will and to work, for his good pleasure (Php.2:13). Then, when in this way His will has overcome ours, we are free to do what we like to do. Then His will in us will steer the body with the tongue. When we hear ourselves speaking words that do not line up with the Scriptures, we can back up and say, “No, I don’t like what I said there. I don’t accept that, Lord. Forgive me. I’m going to agree with your Word.” (Rom.3:4) God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. Now, folks, we are about to come into judgment and some of you are in it and don’t even know it. And God is saying that the most important tool is a renewed mind speaking out of your mouth the Word of God. That’s the powerful tool that you have. 

Jesus and His disciples turned the world upside down with the things that they said (Acts 17:6). The things that they said, they commanded; and the things that they said agreed with the Word of God and brought repentance and deliverance. We have to change our mind and we must be careful about what we put in our computer. We must be anxious for nothing and let our prayers and requests be made known unto God with thanksgiving (Philippians 4:6). Paul tells us something about being at peace with what we put in our mind and what we program our computer with. (Php.4:8) Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Everything we put in our mind is still there but recall is the problem. We don’t want to be polluted by the things of the world. We want to put things in our mind that will cause us to think and speak properly in agreement with the Word of God. 

We don’t want a leaven that leavens the whole lump. (1 Corinthians 5:6; Galatians 5:9). We don’t want to fill up our minds with the television, the things of the world and the love of the world. We want to fill up our minds with the Word of God, fulfilling His will and walking as a disciple. He tells us to think on the good things, not the bad news, not the conspiracies, not studying the false doctrines. The Gospel is the Good News and the power of God unto salvation (Rom.1:16). Paul tells us that I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple unto that which is evil (Rom.16:19). In other words, stop studying the evil in the world and start studying the good because when you sow the Word into your heart, it brings forth Jesus Christ. That’s why we are told to “think on these things.” These things have the power to bring forth Christ in you and Christ in you can take care of evil so it will no longer be a problem or temptation for us. 

Christ within you cannot be tempted with evil. It’s the old man that can be tempted by evil; that’s the part that needs to die. So think on the good things, the things that are true, honorable, just, pure, lovely and the things of good report. (Php.4:9The things which ye both learned and received and heard and saw in me, these things do: and the God of peace shall be with you. We have been given awesome examples, not only in Jesus, but in the apostle Paul and many others. They’ve gone out before us, filled with the Word of God, the love of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Spirit of God. It’s a death experience of self, but it’s a resurrection experience of Jesus Christ living in us. He wants to use our tongue to do the same thing that the tongue of His first body did, which brought deliverance and blessing to the world. It turned not only the body but everything around them. In order to do that, we have to fight this warfare that we’re called to fight. He tells us that this warfare is not of the flesh. (2 Co.10:3) For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh (4) (for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the casting down of strongholds). 

One of those weapons, the most important one, is the tongue. When you agree with the Word of God, you are accounted righteous. Then you are entitled to the benefits of the Kingdom. One of the benefits is the reconciliation, which is the exchange between you and the Cross. God has taken away your sins, your sinful life and your sinful tongue and has nailed them on the Cross. He has taken the righteousness of Jesus Christ and has given it to you. Now He’s given this to you as a benefit but, in order for you to receive this benefit, you must be accounted righteous. That’s why you speak what the Bible says about you. For instance, you were crucified with Christ and it’s no longer you who lives, but Christ Who lives in you (Galatians 2:20). Can you confess that? You might think that people may think you are proud but it makes no difference. This is what the apostle Paul taught us to believe, think and speak. We don’t live anymore; Christ lives in us. That’s the Good News, which is “the power of God unto salvation,” but if it doesn’t come out of our mouth, it’s not going to work. 

We have to agree with the Word and refuse to say anything that is contrary to the Word. There is no fruit in speaking contrary to the Scriptures; they are “idle” words. (2 Co.10:5) Casting down imaginations (Greek: logismos, meaning “reasoning”), and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. The more we are able to do this, the more we’ll be able to speak good things. The more we speak good things, the more our heart is going to change. Remember, the tongue has the power to turn the whole body (James 3:2,3). If we agree with the Gospel, we’re entitled to the benefits. If we’re entitled to the benefits, Christ’s life is our life. His life in us can discern and judge correctly. (2 Co.10:6) And being in readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience shall be made full. Don’t worry about this. Leave that until Christ is manifested in you. He’ll take care of it. He can judge and we can’t. So we need to rest and trust in Him. We need to renew our mind so that our mouth will say good things. 

At the same time, we need to study the Word and begin to say these things because our tongue is the pen of a ready writer (Psa.45:1). We can write the Word of God upon our hearts. We can speak these things down into our hearts so that they come out of us naturally and they will turn our vessels like a rudder turns a ship (James 3:4). (Pro.4:20) My son, attend to my words; Incline thine ear unto my sayings. Obviously, we have to pull away from the world, if the Word of God is going to be important to us. If the world is more important, God knows it and it will be proven by what we say. (Pro.4:21) Let them not depart from thine eyes; Keep them in the midst of thy heart. Think on them, meditate on them. We know that we love the Word when we wake up in the morning and the first thing we think about is God. (Pro.4:22) For they are life unto those that find them, And health to all their flesh. If we want life, we must devote ourselves to the Word of God. Put aside everything else that is a distraction. 

The Bible says that He sent His Word and it healed them (Psalm 107:20). The Word of God is health; it will deliver us from the curse of this world. (Pro.4:23) Keep thy heart with all diligence; For out of it are the issues of life. There it is again. Out of your heart are the issues of your own life. In other words, be careful what you put into your heart because what you’re putting in is what’s coming out. (Pro.4:24) Put away from thee a wayward mouth, And perverse lips put far from thee. Put away a mouth that is “out of the way” or not in “the Way.” The Book of Acts called it the Way' (Act.9:2). We are to follow Christ in the Way that He has said to follow Him. His very life is our example, for He said, I am the way (Joh.14:6). (Pro.4:25) Let thine eyes look right on, And let thine eyelids look straight before thee. (26) Make level the path of thy feet, And let all thy ways be established. In many ways, we go somewhere with our eyes before we go with our feet. If we have wayward eyes, we will have wayward feet. Eyes are windows to the heart, which rules our feet. (Pro.4:27) Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: Remove thy foot from evil. (Pro.5:1) My son, attend unto my wisdom; Incline thine ear to my understanding: (2) That thou mayest preserve discretion, And that thy lips may keep knowledge. We need to be careful to agree with God. 

The High Priest of our confession is Jesus Christ (Hebrews 3:1). “Confession” comes from the Greek word homologeo, meaning “speaking the same as.” He offers our confession before the Father (Matthew 10:32). It is very important that you are confessed before the Father. If you “speak the same as” Jesus, He’s going to speak that to the Father and the Father will deliver the benefits that are needed. We may say things that are acceptable to the world but rejected by the Kingdom. (Pro.5:3) For the lips of a strange woman drop honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil. In this verse, He is talking about the Harlot. Some of you know about the Harlot because you have come out of harlot churches. “The lips of a strange woman” are sweet to the flesh but not to the spirit. When we find God’s words, they’re sweet in our mouth but bitter in our belly (Revelation 10:9). The flesh doesn’t like God’s Word. Let not God speak with us, lest we die (Exo.20:19), was what the Israelites said when they were at the foot of the mountain. When we receive His Word into us, the old life dies and that old harlot will die in us, too. (Pro.5:4) But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword. (5) Her feet go down to death; Her steps take hold on Sheol. 

Apostate religion doesn’t lead us to anywhere but death; it’s a deception, a strong delusion. We want to come out from among her (Revelation 18:4) and come into agreement with the Word of God, where God says we’re righteous. We need to be justified in our words and prepared to go into judgment because we are ready to conquer, not be conquered. We need to keep the lips of life, the words of life. Now we can go to God. You may lament, as Isaiah did, that you are a person with unclean lips and dwell in the midst of others with unclean lips (Isaiah 6:5). Well, the Lord will help you. If this is important to you and you want to live a holy life, He’s listening, so pray. (Psa.141:3) Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips. “Lord, don’t let unclean things come out of my mouth.” You pray that and believe it. It’s all by grace and not by your works. 

We learned that the tongue can no man tame (Jas.3:8). It’s the Lord Who tames the tongue. First, you need to repent. You need to know that you need to agree with Him and in agreeing with Him, you can walk together with Him. (Amo.3:3) Shall two walk together, except they have agreed? The Lord is going to be with you in this; just agree with Him. It’s your faith; it’s not your works. King David understood that it’s by grace. He knew that he must trust in God to tame his heart because He’s the only one Who can. (Psa.141:4) Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practice deeds of wickedness With men that work iniquity: And let me not eat of their dainties. David wanted a heart that was in agreement with the Word of God, so that what he said was in agreement with Him and, thus, he was doing His work. Your heart teaches your mouth and your mouth gives grace to your heart. We are commanded to teach our mouth. (Pro.16:20) He that giveth heed unto the word shall find good; And whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he. (21) The wise in heart shall be called prudent; And the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. 

We see in Exodus 15 that when Moses and the children of Israel were going into the wilderness, they went to Marah (Hebrew: “bitterness”). They couldn’t drink the bitter water there because it was death to them; it was killing them. Think about that. The words coming out of their mouth are killing God’s people. (Mat.15:11) Not that which entereth into the mouth defileth the man; but that which proceedeth out the mouth, this defileth the man. It’s the spring that comes from out of man that is both blessing and cursing. (Jas.3:10) Out of the same mouth cometh forth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. (11) Doth the fountain send forth from the same opening sweet [water] and bitter? Out of the same mouth should not come forth sweet water and bitter. So “the sweetness of the lips” here is referring to the words transformed from a renewed mind and in obedience to the Word of God. 

If you speak the Word of God, it will increase your life. (Pro.16:22) Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it…. How is that? It’s because what we understand comes out of our innermost being and flows right over our tongue. Jesus said, It is the spirit that giveth life; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I have spoken unto you are spirit, and are life (Joh.6:63). (Joh.7:38) He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, from within him shall flow rivers of living water. (39) But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believed on him were to receive … How is it that the Spirit gives us these living waters? Well, as Jesus said, “the words that I have spoken unto you are spirit, and are life.” These words go into us and, as they do, the Holy Spirit brings to remembrance all things He said unto us (John 14:26) and brings them out of us. Many of you have felt that anointing to speak to people and it is really sweet when you are able to give them a good word, something that they need. It comes flowing out of you; it touches their heart and you are overjoyed by that. That’s that wellspring of life coming out of you and God has a lot more of that for us. 

We need to instruct our mouth. (Pro.16:23) The heart of the wise instructeth his mouth, And addeth learning to his lips. It’s very important that we come into agreement with God. We need to train our mouth and we can get our friends, our mate or our children to help us do it. We need to help each other to say things that are in agreement with the Word of God. 

In Numbers 30, the Lord explains that a husband in authority can disallow, or not accept, rash utterances spoken out of a wife, so don’t be offended if someone helps you. Sometimes we make mistakes and we need to back up and say, “Lord, forgive me. I don’t want to talk that way. I want to agree with Your Word. I want to speak the blessing and not the curse.” (Pro.18:21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue…. It’s supernatural. When we speak the Word and calleth the things that are not, as though they were (Rom.4:17), we may be speaking something that we can’t see with our eyes, but our tongue has the power to bring it to pass. God hears our tongue and He hears that we are agreeing with Him and so He imparts grace. (Pro.16:24) Pleasant words are [as] a honeycomb, Sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. Your life proceeds from your bones, from the bone marrow where your blood is made. Speak and agree that you are blessed, healed and delivered from the curse of the world, so God can bring it to pass. Your faith goes up to God through the “High Priest of our confession,” the Lord Jesus Christ (Hebrews 3:1). When we speak in faith, He offers this before the Father (Matthew 10:32). It’s our sacrifice. We are sacrificing the old life when we say these things because they are contrary to our old life and our human nature. Then the Lord Jesus will offer these words of faith before the Father and we will receive His grace for it to manifest. 

(Pro.15:28) The heart of the righteous studieth to answer; But the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things. Study the Word to know how to answer people and how to agree with God in faith. People wonder how they can answer others when believing with God in faith that they’re healed and others can see that they are not. Remember what Jesus said: (Mat.10:32) Every one therefore who shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father who is in heaven. “Confession” means to “speak the same as.” The Word says by whose stripes ye were healed (1 Pe. 2:24). Are you going to confess that? Are you going to confess that you believe God and that you trust His Word? Will you confess before men, “I’m not walking by sight; I’m going to accept His healing”? When people do that, they see miracles and power. And if you will do the same thing with your soul, if you will reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God (Rom.6:11) and begin to speak it out of your mouth, God will give you grace. It’s not because you’re trusting in your power, but in His power. You’re coming into agreement with Him and you’re walking together with Him. 

Many Christians are wicked. They do not agree with God and are contrary to His Word. They are calling God a liar every time they open their mouth. God is our Savior and He has already taken care of these things. He has delivered us, healed us and He has blessed us. He is our Savior in all things and He will protect us under the shadow of His Wings (Psalm 17:8). Who are the righteous? The word “righteous” in the Hebrew is equivalent to the same word in the Greek for “justification.” (Rom.3:4) God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy words, And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment. 

The person who is righteous (justified) is determined to agree with God. We need the justification of the Lord to prevail in judgment. The person who is walking in the light, as He is in the light (1Jn.1:7), receives understanding from God. He wants to agree with the Word and speak it as much as God wants to hear it. The Lord doesn’t hold anything against us; rather, it is the words that we are speaking that are bringing us under the curse. Therefore, as we add understanding to our soul and learning to our lips, and as we begin to speak in agreement with what the Bible says, then we will come out from under the curse. That’s God’s plan. We need to learn to be quiet in many instances until we can speak the Word of God. 

We’re far too impulsive. People who are ruled by their emotions are impulsive and often say things that they wish they hadn’t. Whenever this happens, we need to repent quickly before God teaches us a lesson. This takes practice. (Ecc.5:1) Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of God; for to draw nigh to hear is better than to give the sacrifice of fools (to speak impulsively): for they know not that they do evil. We know that we are the house of God and everywhere we go we need to keep our walk and our mouth humble. This is especially so in the midst of the brethren. It’s better to hear than speak “the sacrifice of fools,” which is speaking rashly out of your mouth. This also includes speaking of things that we don’t know about. Even Job, who was a perfect and upright man (Job 1:1,8) in the eyes of the Lord because he was justified by faith, spoke things he didn’t know about and repented “in dust and ashes” for the self-righteousness that was coming out his mouth (Job 42:1-6). It would be better if we would learn to be quiet and speak when spoken to by the Lord. (Ecc.5:2) Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thy heart be hasty to utter anything before God; for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few. 

God is an awesome Ruler and He doesn’t get the respect that He should get from us. (Pro.9:10) The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…. I like to speak and teach the Word of God a lot because you can’t really improve on what the Lord has already said. Anybody who tries is probably getting into some bad areas. Let your words be few. Since God is on the Throne, He is sovereign and a man can receive nothing, except it have been given him from heaven (Joh.3:27); and He worketh all things after the counsel of His will (Eph.1:11). We need to be careful of what we say in front of Him. We need to honor Him, humble ourselves and just keep the old flesh silent. You let the flesh talk and soon he thinks he has a right to, but he doesn’t have a right to talk since dead men can’t speak. Your flesh doesn’t have any rights in this world anymore. (Rom.6:11) Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin….

I remember what a brother told me years ago: “You take a dead man and slap him on the cheek, he turns the other way.” With the tongue, it should be the same thing: shut up and let the Word of the Lord come forth out of your spiritual man. (Mat.12:37) For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Now, some people think that this is referring only to speaking “ugly” or speaking curses. Well, anytime we disagree with the Word of God, it’s a curse. Jesus said, if we aren’t for Him, then we are against Him (Matthew 12:30; Luke 11:23). We are either in agreement with Him or we are not. There is no gray area. 

I’m not saying that we necessarily have to quote the Word of God but we should be in agreement with it. This is pleasing to our Father. Power is coming forth out of us when we are in agreement with the Word. This power is healing the sick, delivering, turning our heart and so on, but our words should be few. (Pro.17:27) He that spareth his words hath knowledge; And he that is of a cool spirit is a man of understanding. Learn to be quiet. You can’t hear anything when you’re talking. You want to listen to the Holy Spirit. He knows what’s going on around you and knows what’s there before you get there. We need to listen to Him. (Pro.17:28) Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise; When he shutteth his lips, he is [esteemed as] prudent. This gives hope to each of us. God at least imputes some righteousness for being quiet! (Pro.10:19) In the multitude of words there wanteth not (no lack of) transgression; But he that refraineth his lips doeth wisely. In other words, if you talk a lot, there is a likelihood that you are doing a lot of sinning. 

A person who talks all the time because they just enjoy hearing themselves talk should be careful. (Pro.10:20) The tongue of the righteous is [as] choice silver: The heart of the wicked is little worth. The righteous choose what they’re going to say. Their words are valuable, like silver. (Pro.10:21) The lips of the righteous feed many; But the foolish die for lack of understanding. Spiritually and physically, our words are powerful. 

In the coming wilderness, we will see how spoken words are going to deliver to us everything that is needed and necessary for life. The righteous are once again going to live by faith in the days to come because God is designing it that way. (Pro.29:20) Seest thou a man that is hasty in his words? There is more hope of a fool than of him. Why is it that a person is hasty and speaks before he thinks? They’re ruled by their emotions and not ruled by the Spirit. People who are ruled by the Spirit are listening a lot. They want to know what God has to say and what He wants to say through them. They want to know what the Word of God has to say and they want to speak from the renewed mind. (Pro.21:23) Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue Keepeth his soul from troubles. 

We can ask the Lord to put a watch before our lips (Psalm 141:3) but, at the same time, we need to restrain words and thoughts that are of the world. When you get in among worldly people, if you are apt to join them in speaking in their worldly ways, the best thing to do is repent and separate yourself from them until you’ve broken that habit. And begin to get in the Word of God and train your lips; give knowledge to your lips. The trouble comes out of your mouth. You agree with the curse, you get the curse and give it to everyone around you. You agree with the blessing, you get and give the blessing to those around you. We must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath. (Jas.1:19) Ye know [this], my beloved brethren. But let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: (20) for the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 

If we will slow down and give up impulsiveness, we will have time for the Holy Spirit to speak to us. Our conscience will guide us if we are slow to speak. The impulsiveness does not come from a Spirit-led life, but comes from a fleshly-led life and from the impulsiveness of emotions. The Lord wants to wean us away from being ruled by emotions. Sometimes God has to do things to stop us from speaking because He has an agenda that He wants accomplished. We are supposed to be His vessels through whom He speaks this agenda and, if we speak contrary to that, we can hinder it. I think that’s one reason Jesus put people out of the room when they spoke unbelief, so that He could perform a miracle. He didn’t want anyone speaking against it, nor did He want to give any credit to their foolish talk with this miracle.

In the story in Luke, Zacharias, the priest, was promised a miraculous child, John the Baptist. The problem was Zacharias spoke against it. (Luk.1:18) And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. (19) And the angel answering said unto him I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence God; and I was sent to speak unto thee, and to bring thee these good tidings. In other words, “Don’t you have any respect? They are the words of the Almighty God.” We should have some respect but Zacharias wasn’t having any respect. He was questioning whether the blessing would be fulfilled. The angel was in the presence of God when he had given him this blessing. (Luk.1:20) And behold, thou shalt be silent and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall come to pass, because thou believedst not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. The Lord had to shut him up. Zacharias was speaking a curse and he was going to hinder the blessing. 

God stands behind His Word and when He says that what you say makes a difference, He means it. Not that you’re so great, but that He has given us authority on this earth to do these things. The Lord has delegated His authority and He’s not taking it back. Jesus came to show us how to do mighty works and people may think that He was an exception since He was the Son of God. (Joh.5:27) And he gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. He was given this authority because He was Son of man. Why? Because God gave authority on earth to man. (Psa.8:4) What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? (6) Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands…. God has given authority on this earth to man and that’s why He wants to move through man, just as He moved through Jesus, the Son of man. Now, Jesus had authority to exercise judgment because He was the Son of man.

The sons of God – those who, like Jesus, are manifesting their Sonship – exercise authority through the sons of man. Zacharias was given authority to execute judgment or blessing, depending on what came out of his mouth, but he didn’t believe and negative words came out of his mouth that were hindering God. How can man hinder God? It’s because God has given authority and He won’t take it back. However, sometimes He has to move people out of the way in order to do what He wants because they are just a hindrance. We want God to be able to speak through us these blessings, miracles, signs and wonders. 

Everything Jesus did He spoke before it came to pass and we do, too. We need to call the things that are not, as though they were (Rom.4:17); we need to speak them before they happen. Jesus wants to be able to do this through us but we can’t speak against what His will is because, if we do it with our authority, something negative will come to pass. Sometimes the Lord has to move us out of the way and use someone else. Sometimes being moved out of the way isn’t pleasant; it wasn’t for Zacharias, since he lost his tongue for a while.

 Demons Take Over if You Open the Door

Claire Pienaar 8/27/21 (David’s notes in red)

I dreamed Riaan and I were living on a hill(Riaan means, “little king” and Claire means, “brilliance”. They are being used as a type of the Man-child and Bride.) We had a large property that was very vast with well defined boundaries(This hill represents Mt. Zion, the city on a hill, that is located in our spiritual promised land. Zion represents the Bride from which the Man-child rules as King David ruled from the throne of God in the midst of Jerusalem. This property has well defined boundaries because being a member of the body of the Bride requires sanctification and staying on the narrow path which is confining because of the commandment that Jesus laid down for His disciples in the New Covenant.)

At the bottom of the hill a new family had moved in right next to our fence. They had at least 5 children but maybe more. These children were everywhere, climbing over everything and intent on wrestling with my children. I tried to keep my children as separate as possible but it was very difficult. (This family with all their unruly children who want to wrestle with our fruit, Christ in us, represent lukewarm apostate Christians. They have religious demons and unclean spirits from living un-sanctified lives. They are disturbed by the Real Jesus that lives inside of us and they always want to contend with or deny the whole Word of God.)

They had moved in from somewhere in Australia, and both the husband and wife had black hair and sparkling black eyesTheir mother (not sure whose mother) was also with them, and she had black hair too. (The mother-in-law represents the mother church of religious sects and denominations. She is the mother of the harlots. Their hair is black because black hair represents being in submission to darkness and their eyes being black represent Mat.6:22-24 The lamp of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is the darkness! 24 No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.)  

They were all professors of some sort. The man was a professor of marine life(Professor is a play on words. A “professor” can also mean: a person who affirms a faith in or allegiance to something. Marine life could represent the study of man’s ways and methods which are all under the curse represented by the water. Jer. 17:5 Thus saith Jehovah: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Jehovah.) 

The grandmother was a professor of psychology(Psychology could represent man's methods to bring healing and restoration to the mind rather than relying on repentance and believing the Word of God to transform the mind and bring the supernatural healing of the mind of Christ. Many people including so called Christians are in idolatry with education and humanistic reasoning. They value the intelligence and understanding of men with their degrees and they are puffed up with intellectual demons. They are proud of their educational achievements.) 

They assured me they were only renting for a time, and then they would be going back to Queensland(The demons always assure you that their presence in your life or promised land is not so bad and they try to convince their victims to let them stay awhile. Queensland could be a play on words. The Bible describes Babylon the Great as a Queen in Rev. 18:7 How much soever she glorified herself, and waxed wanton, so much give her of torment and mourning: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall in no wise see mourning. Some try to join the Bride but soon return to Babylon which suits their nature.)

The wife opened up a take-away food store in my yard(Take-away food store is a play on words. Babylon DS is in the process of taking away our food supplies to create a global famine. Spiritually the Babylonish words and thinking is what they feed.) All these really scary-looking, drugged, tattooed, weapon-wielding men were buying food(This could represent those who belong to the body of the Beast and who have his Mark.)  I was so hungry in my dream, but I could not eat anything that she sold. I was flummoxed as to why she thought she could sell food on my property. (The vax mandates are the first step in a process to disenfranchise people and Christians from being able to buy and sell without the Mark of the Beast. Spiritually we see their apostate thinking and that it is leaven.)

The woman had a huge black dog with her, larger than life. The dog was unpleasant and it kept on coming for me. I kept on leading the dog back to her, but then she’d command it to follow me. I really got quite fed up after my 3rd attempt at taking it back to her. (This represents the woman that uses the Beast to persecute the saints. Rev. 17:3-6 ...and I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and decked with gold and precious stone and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations, even the unclean things of her fornication, 5 and upon her forehead a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.)

I then walked to the front door of my house and the old grandmother pulled up in a black car and said, “Let me look at your palm. Ah, that’s why you’re scared. I am also like that…” She trailed off but I stopped listening and pulled my hand away and said, “Stop it. Stop trying to come into my life”. (Those who are in submission to the Harlot always try to use witchcraft against the righteous and they are constantly speaking word curses on us and praying witchcraft prayers against us. We should cast these attacks down and not listen to their seductive words that take away our faith.)

Their kids were in our yard, and my children were crying and saying, “They’re evil! Help us!” I had tears in my eyes. I felt like it was coming from all sides. I could only have two of my children in my arms, and one was crouching at my feet. We stood there, unsure of what was happening. (These spirits bring chaos and confusion and they bombard us with attacks from all sides to get us out of the rest and distracted from faith. They try to cause us to lose our spiritual balance so that we are not effective in doing spiritual warfare against them and getting them off of our land.)

Our property was so large but it was over-run with these badly behaved children. They acted like monkeys, defecating everywhere and swinging from the light fixtures everywhere. I just stood there, praying silently. I wondered why I had thought it good to invite them in to meet them. Then I woke up. (Once we open the door to the enemy, he will expect it is his right to come back and defile us at will.)

I received by faith at random for this dream Ezekiel 7:6, (in context 5-8) Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: An evil, an only evil; behold, it cometh. 6 An end is come, the end is come; it awaketh against thee; behold, it cometh. 7 Thy doom is come unto thee, O inhabitant of the land: the time is come, the day is near, a day of tumult, and not of joyful shouting, upon the mountains. 8 Now will I shortly pour out my wrath upon thee, and accomplish mine anger against thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways; and I will bring upon thee all thine abominations. ) (God is going to Judge the Apostate leadership in the Church for all the confusion and havoc they have wreaked because they were greedy and didn’t love the truth more than they loved the world and their own lives. 1 Pe. 4:17 For the time is come for judgment to begin at the house of God: and if it begin first at us, what shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel of God?)

I asked The Lord for another verse by faith at random for myself in this dream. I received Acts 27:35 “God in the presence of all” (in context 34-35) Wherefore I beseech you to take some foodfor this is for your safetyfor there shall not a hair perish from the head of any of you. And when he had said this, and had taken bread, he gave thanks to God in the presence of all; and he brake it, and began to eat. (When the storms of the enemy fall upon us like a flood we must stay in the Word and build up our faith. This is the only salvation for us and for our fruit as well as our loved ones that we are believing for household salvation.)

The Apostates Abort Christ, Our Fruit

Adriana Santoro - 9/26/21 (David’s notes in red)

I dreamed I was heavily pregnant. (We are pregnant with Christ in us our hope of glory. He is our fruit that we must bare 30, 60, and 100 fold in order to enter the kingdom of God.) I was walking through, what looked like, an eery forest that was also a graveyard. It was extremely misty, dark and damp. (The eery forest with the graveyard represents our wilderness trials of death to self and the exercising of our faith in order to bare the fruit of Christ. 1 Pe. 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial among you, which cometh upon you to prove you, as though a strange thing happened unto you: 13 but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy.)

I was walking through this forest and graveyard barefoot, with a dress on, but the dress looked somewhat soaked(Walking barefoot represents not walking in sanctification and separation from the world and its worldly ways. The dress being soaked represents being subjected to the curses of this world represented by the water.) I was walking as though I was lost, but searching for help(We are all lost in degrees as we are searching for truth and help to understand God’s Word and His ways.) 

I was miscarrying(When we aren’t walking a sanctified, separated life from the world, we, who are like Mary, Jesus’ mother, will miscarry Jesus, our fruit, and lose the seed which was sown in the womb of our hearts. Mat. 13:18-23 Hear then ye the parable of the sower. (Jesus was the sower) 19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the evil one, and snatcheth away that which hath been sown in his heart. This is he that was sown by the way side. 20 And he that was sown upon the rocky places, this is he that heareth the word, and straightway with joy receiveth it; 21 yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while; and when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, straightway he stumbleth. 22 And he that was sown among the thorns, this is he that heareth the word; and the care of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23 And he that was sown upon the good ground, this is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who verily beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.)

At first, when I was walking around, there was no one there and I found this hidden bath that was carved out of the earth and the water was clear, and there was a lot of steam coming out of it. (As we will see this bath represents religion and religious practices and idolatry that will stunt the growth of our spirit man and cause us to miscarry Christ, our fruit. Because the apostates don’t preach faith only man’s works to save themselves.) 

I then saw a woman (I don’t know who she was, nor could I even see her properly), who advised me to get into the bath because of the miscarriage. (The steam obscures our ability to see the woman Harlot Church clearly. Many start out in religion because they are still growing in their discernment. Many get trapped there and never escape her delusions and deceptions and they will go on to miscarry Jesus, the seed that was planted in their hearts.)

She told me to pray, but the unusual thing was, next to this bath was a dirt wall that had framed dull images of religious deities. Sort of like a shrine for every type of ‘god, or goddess.’ There was Buddha, Ganesha, Mary etc. (This is why this woman is called the Mother of the Harlots because she encompasses all the religions of the earth. From Babel peoples departed from the true God because of religious spirits. Since the dawn of Christianity many so called Christian religions have departed from the true God so we see that there are actually two Mothers of Harlots that branched into many daughters. In both ways satan sought to dilute the truth and lead people away from it. None of these daughters can bring forth the fruit of Christ who is the Word.)

I remember asking the woman, “Who she expected me to pray to, why this was happening and why there were so many conflicting religious photos on the dirt wall?” (The mother church is in idolatry with demonic religious spirits and receives their seed instead of the seed of Christ only, who is the rightful husband.)  I asked her if I would ever be able to carry a child again and she said, “No.” (In following the directions of this false mother church there is no way to bare the fruit of Christ. The Apostate church always gives out the bad report because they aren’t believers. They have no faith in the promises of God and they don’t teach faith. They don’t believe that Christ can be birthed in us. They even preach that we have no hope of being holy and that we will always be sinners.)

I had no blood signifying that I was miscarrying, nor did I even feel excruciating pain. I just remember feeling sick and extremely depressed as though the child had been murdered, and I knew I had lost my child. (Spiritually speaking, our fruit is murdered by the apostate Church who steals the Good News of the Gospel from our hearts with their false doctrines and the worship of another Jesus. 2 Co. 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we did not preach, or if ye receive a different spirit, which ye did not receive, or a different gospel, which ye did not accept, ye do well to bear with him. In parallel, the faction in the church imparts spirits of faction and witchcraft which puts to death the seed of Christ in all who listen or read their words.)

At the same time, It felt as though all women (although no one else was around) were experiencing this globally; losing their children and their fertility also(In the natural, which in Jesus’ parables is always a type for the spiritual, the mandatory vac/cin/es are causing a huge increase in spontaneous abortions and the spike proteins attach to the ovaries and the endometrium of the uterus causing infertility and an inability for the egg to implant itself inside the uterus. In this way the DS is de-populating the earth. In the spiritual, the leaven of religion leavens the lump of Christianity and is also de-populating true Christianity. Those who fall away leave a sanctified body.)

All I remember from there is laying in this steaming bath looking up at these photos. I was extremely confused as to why I couldn’t see God and had been told to pray to everyone else, as if He didn’t exist at all and mourning the loss of becoming a mother. (If we listen to another gospel then we will never become the mother of Jesus and will not be able to enter the kingdom of heaven. If we behold the face of a false Jesus we can never become the mother of Jesus. Mark 3:31-35 And there come his mother and his brethren; and, standing without, they sent unto him, calling him. 32 And a multitude was sitting about him; and they say unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. 33 And he answereth them, and saith, Who is my mother and my brethren? 34 And looking round on them that sat round about him, he saith, Behold, my mother and my brethren! 35 For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.)

Think and Speak the Things of the Kingdom

David Eells 

The Bible tells us that Death and life are in the power of the tongue (Pro.18:21). Let’s study how we can cooperate with God in this process of sanctification so that we are those who speak life and partake of the benefits of the Kingdom. (Jas.3:8-12) But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] a restless evil, [it is] full of deadly poison. (9) Therewith bless we the Lord and Father; and therewith curse we men, who are made after the likeness of God: (10) out of the same mouth cometh forth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. (11) Doth the fountain send forth from the same opening [sweet water] and bitter? (12) can a fig tree, my brethren, yield olives, or a vine figs? neither [can] salt water yield sweet. 

We want to learn, by the grace of God, to bring forth those “sweet waters.” When Moses and the children of Israel came up to Marah, meaning “bitterness” (Exodus 15:22-25), they couldn’t drink the water. God commanded that a tree be cast into the waters so that they would be made sweet. Marah represents the bitter waters of the fountain, or mouth, which were cured by the tree, which represents the Cross. The Cross has conquered our tongue and has given us this gift of the sweet waters so we can bring forth blessings, instead of the cursings, out of this spring of our mouth.

But the Bible also tells us, The heart of the wise instructeth his mouth, And addeth learning to his lips (Pro.16:23). So we want to educate ourselves to be swift to hear, slow to speak,and slow to wrath (Jas.1:19). We need to think about what we are saying and disagree with the devil because he tempts us from birth to speak the things of the world and not the things of the Kingdom. The Lord is helping us and He has already conquered the tongue, which no man can tame, but the Lord can, through His Word and promises. Jesus was the sacrifice Who gave us a new tongue through the reconciliation.

(Jos.1:6) Be strong and of good courage; for thou shalt cause this people to inherit the land which I sware unto their father to give them. (7) Only be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest have good success whithersoever thou goest. Notice that God said that Joshua (which is Hebrew for “Jesus”) was going to cause His people to be brought into their inherited Promised Land. As we have discovered, the Promised Land is actually us! (Hebrews 6:4-8 For as touching those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come, 6 and then fell away, it is impossible to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. 7 For the land which hath drunk the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them for whose sake it is also tilled, receiveth blessing from God: 8 but if it beareth thorns and thistles, it is rejected and nigh unto a curse; whose end is to be burned.)

The Son of God is being manifested in His people. (Col.1:27) ... Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is a product of the Word of God being assimilated in your life; Christ is the Word of God (John 1:14). We crucify that spiritual man when we walk in the flesh and for the Christians who have the power to do otherwise, who have been filled with the Holy Spirit and enlightened, who have tasted of the heavenly gift, this will become a curse unto them. (Heb.6:7) For the land which hath drunk the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them for whose sake it is also tilled, receiveth blessing from God: (8) but if it beareth thorns and thistles, it is rejected and nigh unto a curse; whose end is to be burned. 

We discovered that the word “rejected” is adokimos, meaning, specifically, “reprobated.” The apostle Paul said that he kept his body under control if, perhaps, after he had preached to others, he himself would be “rejected” or “reprobated” (1 Corinthians 9:27). God doesn’t reprobate land; He reprobates people. The Bible is very plain that we are God’s "tilled land". (1Co.3:9) For we are God's fellow-workers: ye are God's husbandry (Greek: “tilled land”), God's building. God wants to plow this earth, our bodies, and plant His seed in the midst of it, bringing forth the fruit of Jesus Christ in us. 

The land that ‘Joshua' wants to cause us to inherit is referring to our life. The spiritual man, the Israelite, is to conquer this land with the edge of the sword, the Word of God. The spiritual man is to take the land from the Canaanite and live in his house, our body, and plant his crop and bear the fruit of the spiritual man, rather than the fruit of the carnal man, the Canaanite.

(Jos.1:7) Only be strong and very courageous, to observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest have good success whithersoever thou goest. Notice that turning to the right or left would cause failure to take the Promised Land.

I had a dream many years ago where I was standing on a mountain, looking down into a valley and a road that went down the side of this mountain. The road had a ditch or trench down the middle of it. I was in a car, with one set of tires on one side of the trench and the other set on the other side, going down this road to the bottom of the mountain. I realized I couldn’t turn to the right or the left because, if I did, two wheels would fall into the trench and that would be the end of it; I wouldn’t go any farther. I steered very carefully, not to the right and not to the left, as I went down this mountain. The Lord gave me the understanding of this afterward that this mountain represented the kingdom of the world or man, self or the old life. I was to navigate this road and not turn to the right or left, until I got off of this mountain. Going down it represents humbling ones self.

As soon as I was at the bottom, I immediately realized that there were enemies everywhere. To the extent that we humble ourselves to the Word of God, going down the mountain of “self,” the more enemies we will have, even religious enemies or so-called “Christian” enemies. (2Ti.3:12) ... All that would live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. Most of the persecution toward Jesus and the disciples came from the people who called themselves the “people of God.” 

When I got to the bottom and knew that the enemy was everywhere, I went under a bush and there I found tools that I picked up, as if they were treasure. These tools were hammers, screw- drivers, wrenches and so on. The Lord later revealed to me that these tools represented the authority to bind and loose, as all of these tools do. (Matthew 18:18 Verily I say unto you, what things soever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and what things soever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.) The Lord was basically telling me that I was coming to a time, when under the bush, that I was going to pick up this authority. This also is the authority to permit or forbid. What we permit of the leaven in our lives will be permitted but it will make us powerless.

At the time of the burning bush, Moses was given authority to go into Egypt to act for the Lord. I’ve been binding and loosing for many years but I believe that we’re coming to a time of real power from God. It’s only going to come to those who humble themselves to the word and don’t turn to the right or to the left, but stay on God’s road, a self-crucifying path of obedience to the Word of God. 

When I picked up these tools, I went up another mountain, which was Mount Zion. I went through the front doors of a great temple, which I believe represented the New Jerusalem on Mount Zion. Whom did I see there? I saw Jesus sitting on His throne. I went over and sat down next to Him, as He said overcomers would do. (Rev.3:21) He that overcometh, I will give to him to sit down with me in my throne, as I also overcame, and sat down with my Father in his throne.

As I was speaking with Jesus, I heard people trying to come into the throne room by a back way and not through the door that I had come through, similar to John 10:1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. Jesus saw these people and said, “Don’t worry about them; they can’t come in here.” Basically, it was people looking for “throne room” authority but they wouldn’t humble themselves to the Word of God and pick up that authority to bind and loose. We talk a lot about faith and speaking faith but you can’t disconnect it from obedience to the Word of God. God will give authority only to those who overcome according to Revelation 2:26.

(Jos.1:8) This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate thereon day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. Speaking the Word so that you walk it will bring good success when conquering our Promised Land for the Lord. Let the spiritual man conquer the carnal man. We must think and speak according to God’s promises, even in the midst of the fiery trial. 

Do we speak according to the promise or do we speak the things of the world? Are we moved by our carnal senses to speak against what we have in heavenly places? As Christians, we are to call the things that are not, as though they were (Rom.4:17). We speak the things we have according to promise and not according to what we see in the world. This faith that we have and speak changes the things around us. This is God’s plan. We let the Word, or our agreement with the Word in what we say, come from our mouth so that we may have good success in conquering the Promised Land. We must take our land for the Lord.

Further on in Joshua, we see that he is still leading the people of God to conquer their Promised Land, in order to put to death their enemy. In this particular case, the head of God’s people, Joshua, is conquering the Amorites. (Jos.10:12) Then spake Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel; and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; And thou, Moon, in the valley of Aijalon. I believe God is showing us here to what extent He would go to give our enemy into our hands, if we would speak the Word with boldness. He will go to great lengths to give us victory over our enemy. (Jos.10:8) And the Lord said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thy hands; there shall not a man of them stand before thee. 

We discovered that the “man” He was referring to was the old man who lived in the Promised Land before the new man took possession. The old man represented the lusts of the flesh, which would not be able to stand. Joshua and the children of Israel were having victory over the Amorites but they were running out of time. Remember, the Lord said that if we confess Him before men, He shall confess us before the Father in Matthew 10:32. Likewise, Joshua confessed this in the sight of Israel. He didn’t hide and speak this, in fear that it wouldn’t work or that he would be made a fool. Joshua was bold and full of faith and he spoke it right in front of Israel, (Jos.10:12) Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; And thou, Moon, in the valley of Aijalon(13) And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, Until the nation had avenged themselves of their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jashar? And the sun stayed in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

Think about this. At first, I thought God just stopped Earth from spinning, but I later realized that the moon stayed in the same relative position as the sun and Earth didn’t spin, so the whole solar system had stopped. This is a very dangerous thing to do, unless you also control the rest of the universe! Things would tend toward collision down the road somewhere. Can you imagine that God stopped the solar system and more, just so Israel could conquer their enemy? What kind of other big miracle can you imagine that God would do for us to give us victory over our enemy? God gave the Israelites an awesome victory over their enemies! Of course, they needed the time and, for a whole day, the system was frozen. 

People claim that God only did that back then and does not do that today, simply because of the verse right after it. (Jos.10:14) And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the Lord hearkened unto the voice of a man: for the Lord fought for Israel. Well, the Lord still hearkens unto our voice, for many people speak miracles today and they come to pass as they did in the Bible long after Joshua. But I want to point out that he that is but little in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he (Mat.11:11). This is speaking about John the Baptist, whom the Lord said was the greatest of the Old Testament prophets. 

In the Old Testament, His people hadn’t entered into the Kingdom yet. By the way, who is it living in us? Is it God or man? It is Christ in you, the hope of glory (Col.1:27). Who was Christ? He was the Word made flesh (John 1:14) and He is still in His body. He also said, the words that I have spoken unto you are spirit, and are life (Joh.6:63), meaning they are His Spirit and His life. In other words, it’s the life of God living in us; it’s the spiritual man who speaks in agreement with the Word of God. Also, remember that it is the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Eph.6:17)

Therefore, it’s not as if God is hearkening unto the voice of a man, but He is hearkening unto the voice of His sons. That spiritual man in us is not man, but God. The Son of God is manifesting in His people and He speaks words out of us. When we come in agreement with the Word, we can be trusted. The Lord said, If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatsoever ye will, and it shall be done unto you (Joh.15:7). Why? The Word in you is trustworthy to God. If you fill yourself up with the Word and you desire earnestly to walk in agreement with it, God believes you are trustworthy.

A long time after Joshua, the Lord wrote this: (Isa.45:11) Thus saith the Lord, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker: Ask me of the things that are to come; concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands, command ye meDoes God really do that? When you command something to be done, like when His disciples commanded healings, deliverances, provision and so on, who is it, who fulfilled that? It was God. It wasn’t their power but the authority they had been given by God.

Authority is the right to use power. Authority is also what we do when we speak in agreement with the Word of God and God brings it to pass. In effect, what we are doing is commanding God, since He said that if we do, He will do it and Jesus said the same.

To whom did God give the power over the work of His hands? Psalm 8 was spoken concerning natural Adam and his seed, but also in type to spiritual Adam, Jesus Christ, and His seed. (Psa.8:6) Thou makest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; Thou hast put all things under his feet. This was said of man and the Son of man. Jesus said that God had given Him authority because He is son of man (Joh.5:27). Man was given authority on the earth but we lost it through Adam because he sinned giving his authority to the devil. God said, “his servants you are whom you obey.” However, we gained it back through the last Adam, Jesus Christ, because He was tested and remained faithful. 

Once again, we have been given this authority over the works of God’s hands and when we speak in agreement with the Word of God, God fulfills it. God still fulfills the Word of God in our mouths and has put everything under our feet. (Lam.3:37) Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not? Even the devil has no sovereign authority; he has to get permission, as we see in the book of Job. Who gives him permission today? "What we loose on earth is loosed in heaven. When we speak against the Word we permit the devil. To reiterate the point, Joshua exercised dominion and authority given from God, even to the extent that the solar system was frozen in place so God’s people could conquer their enemies.

The next thing we see in Joshua is that he went after the five kings who were ruling the Promised Land. (Jos.10:16-19) And these five kings fled, and hid themselves in the cave at Makkedah. (17) And it was told Joshua, saying, The five kings are found, hidden in the cave at Makkedah. (18) And Joshua said, Roll great stones unto the mouth of the cave, and set men by it to keep them: (19) but stay not ye; pur- sue after your enemies, and smite the hindmost of them; suffer them not to enter into their cities: for the Lord your God hath delivered them into your hand. The first thing they did was trap the five kings in the cave and then they rolled great stones over the mouth of the cave. 

Remember that Adam was created from the dust of the earth (Genesis 2:7) and this old man is earthly, but as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly (1Co.15:49). We are both earthly and heavenly, a spiritual man of the heavens and the carnal man of the earth. The carnal man of the earth has a mouth and here it’s called “the mouth of the cave.” The Lord made the spiritual men roll these great stones over the mouth of the cave. What’s the purpose of that? The five kings represent the five senses and the spiritual man put stones, that represent the Word, over the mouth so the carnal senses are not permitted to speak. If they are permitted to speak we will lose the battle.

Let me explain further. The Bible says that senses must be exercised by the Word of God so that we understand the difference between good and evil. (Heb.5:13) For every one that partaketh of milk is without experience of the word of righteousness; for he is a babe. (14) But solid food is for fullgrown men, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil. As born-again people, we must have born-again senses. As spiritual men, we must have spiritual senses. 

Our carnal senses trapped us and ruled over us and our land because people lived according to their carnal senses and they saw and felt and heard as the world did. They couldn’t walk by faith or see the end from the beginning, as God is teaching us to do. (2Pe.1:3) Seeing that his divine power hath granted unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that called us by his own glory and virtue. 

Can you see that God has already provided you everything that pertains unto life and godliness? You don’t have to fight and struggle for it anymore. Now you have the eyes of a dove (Song of Solomon 1:15). You have the eyes of the Spirit when you begin to see that the promise is true but the world is transitory. It’s passing away but the promise is true. (2Pe.1:4) Whereby he hath granted unto us his precious and exceeding great promises (the stones at the mouth of the cave); that through these ye may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust. 

So, if we have eyes to see, we can partake of God’s nature, we will have spiritual eyes, spiritual ears, spiritual touch, spiritual smell (or discernment), spiritual taste and words; we will have those spiritual gifts that enable the spiritual man to take over. The Israelites had captured the five kings who ruled the Promised Land in a cave and they closed up the mouth with great stones. As you know, Jesus is the Stone; He’s the Rock which is the Word of God. These great stones represent the great promises of the Word of God. We’re adding learning to our lips, which are the “mouth of the cave.”

When we study the Word of God, we learn and see what we are supposed to say and what we’re not supposed to say. The Word of God gives us restraint to not say things that would permit a curse upon our life. The Israelites knew that to conquer the Promised Land, they had to conquer these senses first, these kings that rule over the carnal man and bring the curse upon him. And this is what the parable points to; rolling out those stones in front of the mouth. (Eph.4:29) Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying (building-up) as the need may be, that it may give grace to them that hear. If we see and walk in the Spirit, then we speak in agreement with the Spirit. (2Co.7:1) Having therefore these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 

We have the power to change our nature and this is accomplished by the Word of God. As long as you agree with the world and see your natural face in the mirror, you are never going to be any different. But we need to behold in the mirror the glory of the Lord so we can be changed into that same image. (2Co.3:18) But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are transformed into the same image from glory to glory, even as from the Lord the Spirit. If we have eyes to see only in the natural, then we are not going to conquer the curse for the Kingdom. When we see a need, such as someone living under the curse, we should speak things that answer the need. What we speak should give God’s people grace to overcome, grace to meet that need, whatever it may be. When we speak according to the Kingdom, we are meeting someone’s need for God and His benefits.

(Col.3:17) And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, [do] all in the name (Greek: “nature, character and authority”) of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Whatever you do, in word or in deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus. Do it as if you are representing Him because you are an ambassador of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:20), so speak His words to this world. That’s what we’re called to do. We’re called to confess Him before men always and to speak in His name, meaning nature, character and authority. (1Pe.4:11) If any man speaketh, speaking as it were oracles of God; if any man ministereth, [ministering] as of the strength which God supplieth: that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, whose is the glory and the dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 

When we speak as an oracle of God, that is His Word coming out of us. We’re letting Him do the speaking. We’re letting the spiritual man, who is in communication with God through our spirit, do the speaking. We are not to let the carnal man, who is in communication with the world through the flesh, do the speaking. As Paul said, Let no corrupt speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is good for edifying as the need may be, that it may give grace to them that hear (Eph.4:29). This is what it means to roll the stones in front of the cave’s mouth.

To walk holy is to walk separate. The Greek word for “holy” is the same word for “sanctified” and it means “separate”; that is, separated from the world, separated from sin, separated unto God. We speak His words, we think His thoughts and we do His works because He lives in us. The more we do that, the more we grow in holiness. It’s the place of Holiness. Without holiness, no man can see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14). Holiness is what we grow in when we bear the fruit of Jesus Christ. It is separation from the old man, who is moved and ruled by the carnal senses, unto the new man, who is ruled according to the spiritual senses. 

(Isa.11:2) And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. (3) And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears; (4) but with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth; and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. (5) And righteousness shall be the girdle of his waist, and faithfulness the girdle of his loins. We are to be walking in the Lord’s steps, if we abide in Him (1 John 2:5,6). 

Isaiah is speaking here about the Branch in Isa. 11:1 which is being raised up in our day, called the Man-child. This is Christ in His first-fruits in the end-time. We are not to walk according to our carnal senses because he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither decide after the hearing of his ears (Isa.11:3). Instead, we are to have our senses exercised to discern good from evil (Hebrews 5:14). We are to have our senses exercised by the Word of God, which is the washing of water with the word (Eph.5:26). As our senses are exercised, we begin to see and hear spiritually; we begin to hear and speak the Voice of the Spirit.

Joshua told the Israelites to go after their enemies, since the five kings were already trapped in the cave and they couldn’t command their subjects from there because the mouth of the cave was closed off with the stones. Now the Israelites were able to conquer those whom the kings had ruled over. If you don’t stop those kings from speaking, you will never be able to conquer those that they rule over, the carnal man. (Jos.10:20) And it came to pass, when Joshua and the children of Israel had made an end of slaying them with a very great slaughter, till they were consumed, and the remnant which remained of them had entered into the fortified cities, (21) that all the people returned to the camp to Joshua at Makkedah in peace: none moved his tongue against any of the children of Israel. (22) Then said Joshua, Open the mouth of the cave, and bring forth those five kings unto me out of the cave. (23) And they did so, and brought forth those five kings unto him out of the cave, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon. 

(24) And it came to pass, when they brought forth those kings unto Joshua, that Joshua called for all the men of Israel, and said unto the chiefs of the men of war that went with him, Come near, put your feet upon the necks of these kings. And they came near, and put their feet upon the necks of them. They let them out of the cave and they had to keep them from speaking, so they put their feet on their necks. 

This reminds me of the dream I had about being in a war with a giant and not letting the old man speak. When he did, he said, “Bigger, bigger, bigger!” We have a lot of giants around us; a lot of big problems and a lot of big enemies. We can’t let the old man, whom I captured in the dream and who was in bondage to me, speak out of our mouth. I’ve been ruling over him for many years but it used to be the other way around; he was ruling over me. I didn’t want to let him speak because the old man has the authority to make the situation worse and make the enemy stronger and bigger. But I refused him and demanded that the giant be reduced, saying, “No! Smaller, smaller, smaller.” So the giant that I saw ahead of us, standing before us, was not able to conquer me because I corrected the old man. 

Similarly, the Israelites put their feet on the kings’ necks, causing the five senses to not speak or to rule over the body. (Jos.10:25) And Joshua said unto them, Fear not, nor be dismayed; be strong and of good courage: for thus shall the Lord do to all your enemies against whom ye fight. (26) And afterward Joshua smote them, and put them to death, and hanged them on five trees: and they were hanging upon the trees until the evening. Notice that all of our enemies will be conquered in this way. Jesus Christ was hanged upon a tree, or cross, and they wanted to take Him down before evening, too. 

Jesus also was buried in a cave. So why is God applying this to the senses of the old man? We were crucified with Christ in Gal. 2:20 and that includes our five senses. We, too often, get caught up in the idea that “I” have to conquer my senses, “I” have to conquer this tongue. Well, you are putting all the responsibility upon yourself, instead of remembering that the Lord has already taken care of this problem. He was crucified on that tree and you were crucified with Christ and you don’t live any longer but Christ lives in you. (Gal.2:20) I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me. 

Remember that your old senses were crucified with Christ. You have been given this gift of the new man, for by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified (Heb.10:14). This gift comes along with these new spiritual senses. We walk in the spirit according to these divine senses, the senses that are attuned to the Kingdom of Heaven, the senses that see how to walk in the Kingdom, instead of how to walk in the world. It comes quite naturally to us to walk in the world but it comes supernaturally to us to walk in the Kingdom; that is, to have our senses exercised by the Word of God to see and hear the way God sees and hears, and to smell, or discern, the way God does. It is also to have our emotions in communication with God.

(Jos.10:27) And it came to pass at the time of the going down of the sun, that Joshua commanded, and they took them down off the trees, and cast them into the cave wherein they had hidden themselves, and laid great stones on the mouth of the cave, unto this very day. So why cover the kings now? Well, the old man is still in the inside but he’s dead now and that’s the whole point. We are to come to the place that we don’t let that old man speak ever again. If you let him speak, let him live, let him come down off that cross, he will continue to live, to grow and to rule your life. 

You need to remember that the Lord has crucified him, including his senses. God has already taken care of this and we get to rejoice in the victory that has been given to us already. The victory is that the old man and his senses are dead and the new man, Who is Jesus Christ, lives in you. Because of your faith and speaking that faith, God will bring it to pass. It’s not that we are able to do so by our own power and ingenuity; the old man is not going to put the old man to death. It’s through faith and not by works. (Eph.2:8) For by grace have ye been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, [it is] the gift of God; (9) not of works, that no man should glory. 

We really can’t help ourselves but we know Someone Who can. We know we can turn to the Lord, Who gave His life for us. We also know that He has given us these spiritual senses and we can claim them by faith. We claim that God has given us a new tongue and a new life, that by one offering He has perfected us in Hebrews 10:14. “I accept your perfection, Lord. I accept that Jesus lives in me. I accept that you will put a watch upon my lips and you will not let anything go forth out of my lips that is not in agreement with your Word.” He tells us to do just that. (Psa.141:3) Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; Keep the door of my lips. (4) Incline not my heart to any evil thing, To practise deeds of wickedness With men that work iniquity: And let me not eat of their dainties.
