Chapter Six – My Life and Anointing

People mock me over my use of the word “messiah” but that is because they are ignorant and have not been “born again.” For if they were, they would be functioning and judging from the divine nature within them and they would understand me and know why I speak as I do. “Messiah” is simply the Hebrew word for “anointed,” and the specific word that Father chose to use when He anointed me for my mission. I know by experience the force of God that has come upon me, but they do not. When I speak to them it is only speaking to the wind, for even a stone would hear me before they would. If one rose from the dead or translated to heaven and then went to tell them, they would not believe.

MANY FALSE CHRISTS

But it is also true that there are many false Christs (messiahs) and false prophets in this day, as it is written, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matt. 24:24. The pulpits of America are filled with those who falsely claim that they are “anointed” to preach the gospel. And there are many false prophets who preach “prosperity” and “peace and safety.” They work wonders and sometimes speak in false tongues, and these men and women are followed by their people who build wonderful edifices for them to preach pleasing deceptions for their itching ears. They are kindled by their own “common” fire but not the fire of God. Even the devil is “converted” after the modern order of things, for righteousness has been replaced by being nice, flattery, and vain display. The masses follow men and fables rather than be filled with the lightning of God that flashes in the soul from the east even unto the west. Those with the lightning believe my words and know that what I have said is true. “But the dead know not anything.” Ecc. 9:5.

For the time will come when they will not tolerate (endure) sound doctrine; but after their own lusts (natural human desires) having ears itching for something pleasing and gratifying, they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold; And they shall turn away their ears from hearing the truth, and shall be turned to fables and man-made fictions. 2 Tim. 4:3, 4, KJV AMP.

And so it is. The people are not being prepared for heaven but for the world of the flesh, money and human relationships. “Don’t bother me,” they say, “I am too busy getting a good life. God is blessing me with many wonderful things to enjoy.” Yet all the while they determine to kill the true Anointing.

But my word is true and my purpose settled in heaven. From the time that the Anointing of the Holy Spirit came down upon me with power in July of 2000, I have been instructed to share this heavenly gift (Messiah), to give souls a taste of the Word of God and “the powers of the world to come,” (Heb. 6:5) and to repeatedly enlighten souls until they could once see for themselves. This I did through speaking about and writing out the supernatural prophetic events which the Father Himself initiated and brought to pass in “Strong City”: the “Consummation” of “the marriage of the Lamb,” the “seven angels” pouring out the “seven last plagues,” and the “seven women” taking hold of “one man” (Messiah) (Isaiah 4:1). I was to explain what these physical events actually represented spiritually and what they fulfilled prophetically.

These events, along with an innumerable host of other living-parables which Father orchestrated in our land during our first seven years here, were all designed by Him to make known a key spiritual mystery which had been previously unknown, but which Messiah had come to give. In order to leave this earth and be translated to heaven without dying physically, it was a prerequisite that this mystery be understood and experienced. This key mystery, which He anointed me to enlighten the souls of this final generation with, was the clear message that heaven’s requirement for every soul who desired to enter there is that they must be married to God alone. This I described in detail, what that marriage to God, or consummation of the soul into God looks like, and what it costs the soul. The parables that God sent served to offend the wicked so that they would not believe, and be damned. But God’s children, His disciples, all understood the mystery of “Christ (Messiah) in you, the hope of glory.” Col. 1:27.

Only those souls whose hearts were pure before God could recognize the parables and prophecies that God Himself brought to pass, fulfilling those things which had been written for this final generation. These had the oil of the Holy Spirit in their lamps which lit up these events with God’s point of view. The prerequisite of seeing through God’s eyes and discerning His events with the divine faith that He Himself gives, was the same when the Anointing came in human flesh 2000 years ago.

The Jews had faith of a similar character to that of many professed Christians today. They believed the prophecies predicting the advent of Messiah; but their faith was not of that spiritual nature which discerned in the Son of God the Saviour of their expectations. They could not accept the work of God for their time, and they rejected the truth because their faith did not see the relation of the shadow to the substance. They clung tenaciously to the offering of their sacrifices, to the rites of the church and the traditions of the fathers; but they refused the Lamb of God, the great antitype of all the services of the past…. He who had inspired the words of the Scriptures, and whose life was the fulfillment of their prophecies, was a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offense. He did not meet their ideal of what the coming One should be…. When Jesus unfolded to them the character of his kingdom, and what his disciples must possess in order to be elect, and favored of God, they said, “This is a hard saying; who can hear it?” The Saviour was invested with the credentials of Heaven. The word of God sustained his claims. His miracles, his holy character, his power over men and devils, all spoke conviction to the hearts of his hearers; but they refused him. He came in accordance with the prophecies they professed to believe, but he was “despised and rejected of men,” as the prophets had foretold he would be. The Jews could not give up their dreams of a great Prince who would rule all nations. They could not relinquish their hopes of temporal power and glory to take up with the Man of Sorrows, to follow in his steps of self-denial and purity. They loved darkness rather than light and the errors they loved wrought out their destruction. Ellen White, Signs of the Times, March 30, 1888.

So it has been in our day since the beginning of the Anointed Spirit’s coming down again in the year 2000, until now. The hearts who loved the world went away from the light of the Anointed Spirit and the events He had carried out through me in “the SIGN of the son of man,” crucifying Him again and holding Him to an open shame.

If one is once shown the power, and yet rejects that power, that one cannot be enlightened again, because it is that very power which converts the soul. If that power is rejected, then there is nothing to convert the soul with. This is what happened to the state at my trial. After God’s light shone there and was rejected, total darkness came over the state’s “seat” (power), and over the highest seats of government, and it accused me of the grossest motivations in the testimony of the “expert witness,” just as they did with Yeshua (Jesus) centuries ago. When God anointed me, He anointed me with “the powers of the world to come,” the powers of the next world. There were some healings and hundreds of other miracles, and visions which all came to pass as shown me.  But the greatest miracle was the fulfilling of the time prophecies. That could not be faked, for the fulfilling of them was in the hands of the state and others.  The circumstances were not under my control.

During the beginning months of experiencing the events in our land which came from “the powers of the world to come,” while on my bed I was given a vision of the resurrection of the dead and a vision of Christ coming in the heavens. And while I was in the very midst of seeing this vision, Father spoke to me regarding the otherworldly events we were experiencing, and connected them with the vision He was giving me with the words, “This is the coming of Christ!” Father was showing me that the physical images I was seeing in vision were the outward symbols of the inner spiritual realities we were beginning to witness. What we were seeing was Christ beginning to come IN His people, just as had been written. (2 Thess. 1:10) The dead in trespasses (Eph. 2:1-5) were being “quickened” – “made alive together with Christ” the Anointed Spirit – by “the powers of the world to come.”

At the very beginning of our time in the land, the Woman in the wilderness had given her word that she wanted to be married to God and be the bride of Christ. But she had only experienced human marriages and had put those ideas onto what it meant to be married to God. She actually had no clue of the total change that was required in herself in order to be transformed into a divine being who could have a divine marriage with a divine Being, and be totally at home in a divine world. It was about a month later that the Anointing appeared in the land. He had come to show the Woman in the wilderness what it was like to be taken out of her natural human realm and the normal commonness of human interactions and relationships, and into the realm of His divine interactions and relationships.

So what happened to us during those first seven years, was that I, along with other witnesses, were used by God to demonstrate in real life experiences how we were going to live in the next world. All day long we were in direct connection with God. Continually we were experiencing all of these awesome mysteries that were revealing themselves. Day and night we were receiving heaven’s communications and unctions and point of view coming down upon us. Continually we found occurring between us, supernatural connections and divine appointments. We were being used to show what we were being taken to in the next world where we would be married only to God. (Luke 20:35) “The powers of the world to come” were revealing how we were being given to live now, in preparation for being taken there. Here and now we were being brought into marriage with God alone, where we would follow only His unctions, and experience only His divine interactions and relationships.

“The powers of the world to come” were resolutely purposed to bring each person who would be brought, to the place of experiencing the full appearing of the Anointing in their own soul. Each person who was willing to bear the overturning of their natural human ego and its world, would be fully freed from its soul control to follow the Anointing (Messiah) within their own soul. They would begin to personally experience within their own person the Anointing’s bonded connection with the Father, and witness the reciprocal divine interactions and intimate relationship between Them. They would be brought into the Anointing’s Life and out of, and divorced from, their own natural human life, and in their own soul they would experience “the marriage of the Lamb” – the consuming of their own human self (ego) into the Anointing’s divine Self and consciousness.

In one’s spirit, in heaven, the light of the Anointing brought great rejoicing. Yet in one’s earth, one’s humanity, there was a great overturning, and this brought times of great consternation. This was because we were being taken away from Satan’s power to influence our humanity and he was having fits over it. And, he was given certain rights by God to test us.

THEN THE POWER ENDED

So after our first seven years of power, the visions and all of the otherworldly events that we were being taken through by God, ended, and we had seven years of testing and suffering. As God did with Job, and with Yeshua, He consented to give me over to the devil so that I might be tested. For the devil told God that if he could touch me with great humiliation and dishonor, bringing the contempt of the whole world against me, I would reject God. I would give up my anointed mission and agree with the devil, and take his point of view that everything I had done in the land was really not of God, after all. I was also tested to see if under pressure I would hide my testimony so that those around me would be my friends. I would be tested to see if I would be ashamed of the Anointing. So God permitted Satan to come against me with great humiliations. For seven years, using the powers of the state, the mob, and the media, the devil was given permission by God to test me to the uttermost. With great agony at times, I suffered the torturing ordeal and the wrongful charges. I was abused and accused and pressed in every way Satan could conceive, except to take my life. My suffering was extraordinary.

Satan was also allowed to accost my spirit. For thousands of hours on my prison bed I bore the humiliation and intense distress under Satan’s continued abuse. He was given permission to contend and contest all of the otherworldly events in our land, every event that the Anointing had carried out through me during the first seven years, putting them to me in the most distorted and perverted view possible, just as he did with those who hated the light of our events. Those thousands of hours were bone crushing. The mental agony and anguish was intense and grueling. I was pressed far beyond what a human could possibly bear by himself. It was the Anointing alone Who kept me and Who was my ability to bear the extreme testing. When dark heavy clouds of satanic “earth views” came up in my face and clashed against each other and eclipsed everything else, the one clear place of settled glory whence came the voice of God like many waters, was the Anointed Spirit within me, bringing back to my memory Father’s clear instructions in every event, and bringing His point of view into focus once again after each time of testing.

Yet through this very injustice the prophecies were fulfilled, for I was brought into my rest through “the death.” I have come to my innocence and the Anointing in me has come to His “rightful place.” It was written that at the 1335 days I would “rest, and stand in my lot at the end of the days.” (Dan. 12:12, 13) The Anointing brought me to “rest, and I stand in my lot.” My “lot” is “God alone.” He is “the portion of my inheritance and of my cup, and He maintains my lot,” His Life in me. (Psalms 16:5) The Anointing in me brought me to “the Lord Himself.” I “rest” in Him, and I “stand” in Him. And prison and persecution were my way there. “Blessed, happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous, and to be envied is he who waits expectantly and earnestly, who endures without wavering beyond the period of tribulation, and comes to the 1,335 days!” Dan. 12:12, Amplified.

The beginning date for the 1335 days was June 19, 2012, the midst of my seven years of confirming the covenant in prison, when I caused the sacrifice and oblation to cease because of the “overspreading of abominations.” My great time of trouble continued on until the end of the second 2300-day Day of Atonement when the Ancient of days gave His judgment during the hours of the blood moon eclipse on April 4, 2015. The 1335-day prophecy continued on for another ten months, ending on February 14, 2016, when I stood in my lot and began publishing my testimony.

I have received my inheritance, and only God do I possess. I do not possess or cling to any earthly wealth. And more than that, I have no desire for anything but God and to only follow in His steps. My extremity was God’s opportunity to erase any remaining love of the world, even the “good” world, and my natural human earthiness and consciousness. Before this, I still retained some love for my country and believed that there was still some justice in the courts. But after what they did to me and to my children, it all disappeared and my heart is not drawn to anything of the natural world anymore at all, because the experience taught me what the world actually is. My eyes were opened to the lie of it and I let it go.

The “rest” that the Anointing entered me into after “the death” is “His rest” described in Hebrews 3 and 4. This is the complete rest from their human selves that God’s people must fully enter into. This is the rest of “being made a partaker of Christ (the Anointed Spirit)” by “holding the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end,” (Heb. 3:6, 14) no matter how great the test. Clear to the end of my time of testing the confidence of the faith of the Son of God within me was my anchor. With His faith I held fast to the words of the Father to my soul and I was sustained by the agencies of heaven. Now Satan’s kingdom is doomed, for I have borne my “crucible of humiliation.” I did not flee from the face of the dragon, but faced him with clear determination.

The devil was given seven years to try and kill me spiritually. And I didn’t die. He did everything in his power to break my connection with the Anointing in me, and he couldn’t. The devil has lost the argument, and the great controversy between the Anointing of God and Satan is over. I have won the great struggle of all time by the grace of God which showered me with His comforts and sustaining strength. His comforts were in the form of light, as He revealed to me what was actually going on. I sometimes shared these revelations with others.

THIS IS WHAT “SAVED BY GRACE” MEANS

The victory of Yeshua (Jesus) was given to me for this final battle. It was through the power of the Anointed Spirit that I won the great controversy. And the victory was, I didn’t curse God and die during the intense struggle, or run away in order to get a “normal” life. I bore the time of “Jacob’s trouble” and “endured to the end.” (Jer. 30:7; Matt. 10:22) Christ’s victory in Yeshua was that he didn’t kill everybody and go back home. He bore it. What I’ve had to work out has been a much longer work than what Yeshua had to work out. I know that from the time we entered into our Son of God ministry after our baptisms – his by water and mine by fire – his was 3½ years, and mine has been seventeen years.

The human nature which Mary gave birth to was being “set apart” for a holy purpose from conception. And that holy purpose was to be the yielded human sanctuary for the Spirit of Messiah to tabernacle within and live out His divine Life from. And then at the end of Messiah’s earthly life, he would be Messiah’s human sacrifice on the cross of Calvary as the Lamb of God. His human body would be feeling the physical pain, bleeding the physical blood, and by his physical death would ratify Messiah’s covenant with His Father to pay the price of saving fallen humanity from itself.

During Messiah’s earthly life, his fallen human nature that he had inherited from Mary would be continually crossed by the daily personal instructions He received from His Father. But Messiah had come to tabernacle in the fallen human flesh of this “set apart person” for the very purpose of showing all yielded human beings how He would live His divine Life in them, as well. He was revealing how He would always obey His Father’s voice while living in their fallen human nature, laying it down instead of acting on it, always sacrificing it on the altar of His Father’s crucifying will for them, instead of hardening His heart when He heard the Voice. Messiah would be demonstrating in the “set apart” human body of Jesus of Nazareth, how He was going to messiah (anoint) every human being who yielded to Him. And while living within their fallen human flesh, just as He had lived within Jesus’ fallen human flesh, He would prove that “Jesus revealed no qualities, and exercised no powers, that men may not have through faith in him.” Ellen White, The Desire of Ages, p.664.

Being this “holy thing,” this “set apart person” bearing the Holy Spirit, is the privilege of everyone who is saved, and must be their experience. Yeshua (Jesus) showed us what God does when He’s living in a human. Those who came against us and persecuted us don’t have that, they only have their own flesh that they judge me with. The so-called ministers of God who are not “that holy thing” are the false christs and false prophets that deceive the people. They are an unholy thing, they’re common, not “set apart” for God.

Yeshua was “set apart” from conception. Then when he went to the temple for the first time at age 12 for Passover and witnessed the bleeding lamb on the altar and felt such inner identity with it as his mission began opening up to him, he became “set apart” by choice.

From the time the parents of Jesus found Him in the temple, asking and answering questions among the doctors, His course of action was a mystery to them, they could not understand it. Quiet and gentle, he seemed as one who was set apart. His hours of happiness were found when alone with nature and with God. Ellen White, condensed from The Desire of Ages p.89 & Youth Instructor 12-05-1895.

Yeshua knew he was a “set apart thing,” set apart wholly for God’s purposes, a “holy thing.” But he knew he was not a “good thing.” He conveyed this when he said to the rich young ruler, “Why do you call me good? There is only one good and that is God.” He knew very well that he of himself, his flesh only, was not good, but he did know that he had been “set apart” for the divine Spirit of Messiah to live in. He keenly understood that his fallen human nature was not good, nor was anyone else’s, and that he continually laid it down instead of acting on it or giving agreement to it, so it always remained subservient to Messiah Who lived within him. The tabernacle in the wilderness made of animal skins was called a “holy thing,” prepared, set apart and dedicated to God for the Shekinah light to tabernacle in. It was designed to be a symbol of God’s Shekinah Light dwelling in our prepared and set apart skin.

People get trapped in thinking that they’re good if they do good things, or they profess “Jesus,” so that makes them good. A person says, “Well, I’m a good person.” But they’re just not. Nobody is. No, not one. Our natural humanity is evil, period. But, the flesh can be set apart by God for a holy purpose, and then that flesh is crucified again and again by the events that He arranges for the soul until it is quiet and still, always yielding to the leading of the Spirit of God dwelling within it, instead of its fallenness.

FULLY HUMAN AND FULLY DIVINE

“Messiah [in Yeshua (Jesus)] was the first-fruits [‘set apart’ for a holy purpose]; afterwards, they that are the Messiah’s, at his coming.” 1 Cor. 15:23. Like Yeshua at 12 years of age, when he consciously yielded to be “set apart” as the sacrificed Lamb,” so “they that are the Messiah’s at his coming” consciously yield to God to be “set apart” for His holy purpose when they hear His voice opening up to them their calling, and they don’t harden their hearts at the cost of the sacrifice. I was “the first of many” of the “set apart ones” that “are the Messiah’s at His coming.”

Indeed, this is the end of the world. The children of light follow me on white horses of conquest, for it is written: “His name is called the word of God.” Rev. 19:13. And, “I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse and he that sat on him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.” (v11) In the beginning of our sojourn in the wilderness, the Father told me that I was “Faithful” and “You are the word of God.” The Scriptures testify of me and the work God gave me to do. My posts and this “Little Book” is how I have judged and made war.

Those who believe my testimony, those who let the divine power of my words from the Anointing go into themselves, will receive into their very experience of life the benefits of my crucible of testing, and the complete victory and rest from my human nature and flesh that followed. They will be empowered to yield fully to the Anointing within them, and He will be allowed full expression in them. He will bring them through their crucible of testing and “the death” into Himself, into the same victory and rest into which He brought me, and He will “come to His rightful place” in them, as well. Then this same Anointed Spirit Who has taken each soul through their preparatory process and has come to His rightful place in them, will Himself complete the final step of “the change”:

Who shall transform our body of humiliation into conformity to His body of glory, according to the working of the power which He has even to subdue all things to Himself.” Phil. 3:21, Darby.

To the people in Yeshua’s (Jesus’) day, he appeared to be just a man; a man they judged as crazy, mad and whom they accused as having a devil. Nevertheless, the Anointing Spirit of Christ spoke through this “man” and He gave Yeshua’s generation of professed worshippers in God the same warning He is giving this final generation of professors:

You have your heads in your Bibles constantly because you think you’ll find eternal life there. But you miss the forest for the trees. These Scriptures are all about me! And here I am, standing right before you, and you aren’t willing to receive from me the life you say you want. John 5:39, 40, MSG.

THE MIRROR OF JUDGEMENT

I know of the many thousands of negative comments on the internet about me by people who imagine that they understand me and are sure they know all about me. Their puffed up and entirely distorted minds put their own perverted spin on everything I have carried out in obedience to the plain command of God to my soul and spirit. Even those who profess the name of Christ have had some bright ideas about me, as well as all the doubts that the Jews had concerning Yeshua. But what they don’t realize is how God has set up the judgment so people pass judgment on themselves, and expose their own selves, by the way they judge and condemn me, or anyone else they accuse and condemn. They hand over to God their opinion of me as the truth, while what they made up about me in their imagination is only true for themselves.

So then God holds up to them their own measuring rule that they created to judge me by. But, instead of measuring only their outward deeds by it, He’s measuring their innermost thoughts and feelings, and the hidden impulses and desires deep in their souls that created their measuring rule by which they measured me and passed judgment on me. “And there is no created thing hidden from before him, but everything is naked and exposed before the eyes of Him to whom we give an account.” Heb. 4:13, Aramaic Bible in Plain English. God says to them, “For as you have been judging, so you will be judged, and with your measure will it be measured to you.” Matt. 7:2, BBE. He observes deep within them the precise science of what it was in their own selves which created me to be who I am to them in their imagination. They created this out of who they are of themselves, out of those specific traits in their own human nature which are on a subconscious level and hidden from their own awareness. God knows that for a person to have negative internal thoughts and reactions of condemnation for anyone, for whatever they did, it is an accurate indicator that that person is guilty of that thing themselves. For a person doesn’t feel condemnation for someone else when they’re not guilty of the same crime themselves, even if the crime is only in their thoughts or feelings.

A CONTROLLING CULT LEADER

A person may say, “But I’m not guilty of being a controlling cult leader using my authority to coerce people like Wayne Bent does.” Yet as God looks deep into his heart and soul and traces his condemnation of me to its root cause within him, He asks him respectfully and with deep interest, “Where did you get the idea that he is like that? What caused you to interpret what he did in that way?” As He is observing the inner workings of his own natural human traits, whatever they are, perhaps for example, like his own efforts to adjust, manipulate or control people and circumstances in his own life, or even the desires or impulses that he feels but he doesn’t act upon, He says to them, “Your perception and judgment of Wayne Bent has nothing to do with who he actually is or what he actually did. It comes out of who you are inside. Your own self-imagined superiority over other people and circumstances, and the prerogatives you feel you have a right to exert over them, expose the place within you where your imagination of him came from. Your innermost soul reveals why you imagine him in that way, for you are the very things you imagine him being and doing, and which you condemn him for.”

When a soul has allowed God to come very close to him and He has become very intimate with him, showing him in vivid and minute detail his own fallen human nature which has been hidden from him in his subconscious depths, there remains in that soul no condemnation in his heart for anyone. That soul knows what he is capable of doing, of himself, if he didn’t have God’s Spirit within him keeping him in His Life and nature. That soul has genuine understanding for others, and personal insight born out of deep self-knowledge which has come from God’s illuminating Spirit.

But when a person can condemn someone else without any evidence, or with “evidence” that is contrived, or imagined, that person can know that he is actually talking about himself, and that he is guilty of the very crimes he is condemning in someone else. He can know that God arranged circumstances to bring that person into his life as a very helpful mirror to him with which he could now look deep into the hidden places of his own soul that he hadn’t been able to see before, and see what was down in there. He was being given the opportunity to look at himself in the mirror (with the other person’s face in it) and to objectively observe the judgments and opinions that were issuing forth out of his heart about “them,” and in this way he could get a very accurate picture of his own soul. Because it is only out of his own character that those perceptions were issuing. They had nothing to do with the other person, who they actually are or what they actually did.

Those who post on the blogs around the world can know that, too. They can read their own blog postings about me or anyone else, and learn to know themselves. This is particularly true with my legal case where certain motivations were ascribed to me. How would it even enter my accusers’ minds except that’s where they were coming from? The accusations were coming from their own motivations. Their own soul was the source of the black tarballs they were throwing at me.

Someone else may say to me, “Well I’m not judging you, it’s the Word of God that judges you.” Well, the written Word of God records that God instructed Hosea the prophet to marry a whore because God was going to use Hosea’s marriage to her as a parable for His people at that time. (Hosea 2:2) Yet this personal command of God to Hosea went directly against the specific written Word of God that He had given His people hundreds of years before, “They shall not take a wife that is a whore…” Lev. 21:7. So is the person who is saying that God’s Word judges me, going to say that God’s Word judged Hosea, also? “Hosea, I don’t judge you, but the Word of God in Leviticus 21:7 judges you.” Or, would they say to God, “You weren’t supposed to do that, God. You were going against Your own Word that You gave before, and Your own Word judges You for this. Jesus named that behavior adultery.” Or would they say to Hosea, “I can’t believe your testimony, Hosea, that God told you to do this, because it goes directly against His written Word.” Or did Hosea tell God, “No, I can’t do that, God, because you told us in Leviticus 21:7 that we are not supposed to marry whores?” No, Hosea didn’t hold God to His former written Word when God’s personal, current, living Word was sounding in his soul. And, the only reason Hosea was able to recognize God’s current Word to him was because God’s Holy Spirit was very present within his soul, giving him eyes to see and ears to hear God giving preeminence to His current Word, over His previous written Word, and Hosea obeyed. It is written, “Hosea did it.” Hosea 1:3, MSG.

The person who feels that God’s Word is judging me for the events which God Himself instructed me, and then forced me to carry out, is being given the opportunity to look at himself in the “mirror” that God has put in front of his face (himself with my face on him). In it, he may objectively observe that he is the person that the Word of God is actually judging. And what is the Word judging him for? For not believing the testimony of the One that God sent to him in human flesh,” as it is written:

This is the work of God that you believe on him whom He has sent. John 6:29. The Father himself, which has sent me, has borne witness of me…. And you have not His word abiding in you: for whom He has sent, him you believe not. John 5:37, 38.

Satan knows the specific deceptions he has brought to a soul that he has fallen for. He knows his faults and failings and can make suggestions to him in order to keep him firmly in his camp. He brings to him his own fallen thoughts and misapplications and puts them in first person, thinking his thoughts in him as though he were that person, “I’m not judging you but the Word of God judges you.” This person has revealed his ignorance of the Word of God and that it is not abiding in him. He has been deceived into thinking that his perception of me is God in him thinking His thoughts in him. But his perceptions of me are not coming from God Who sent me, but from his own human nature and its religious faith and perverted ideas actuated by the spirit of the god of this world. So God has set up the process of judgment during this time so that it exposes a person to himself if he has been sincerely deceived. Thus he has an opportunity to see and know himself as he actually is. “For when thy judgments [God’s divine Opinions which He is issuing in The Little Book] are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness.” Isa. 26:9.

THE DEVIL LOVES TO QUOTE THE SCRIPTURES

Only the Holy Spirit Who inspired the written Word can illuminate it and make it alive to a soul and apply its principles to the right time and right place and to the right person. The devil cites the written Word freely, but he never applies it aright. He quoted it at the end of Jesus’ 40 days of temptation in the wilderness following his baptism, but it was for the purpose of derailing Jesus from his anointed mission. It is the same now. The devil quotes the written Word and misapplies it in order to derail a soul and distract his attention from God’s light shining on him and its current, personal and actual application to himself. Concerning me, after one hears my testimony, Satan immediately repeats Scripture to derail the soul. He says, “It is written”:

Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matt. 24:23, 24.

This Scripture is speaking of those who draw men to themselves. The pulpits of America are full of them. The world is full of them. But my message is not for people to follow my flesh, but my Spirit, the Spirit within me that I am following. The Life of God flashes upon the soul from the east even unto the west. It is not a man but a Life and it is God’s life. Yet it is through humans that God reveals His Life. That is the way He has chosen to do it. But Satan does not want the reader to catch God’s Light. He would have the reader run away from the Life, for he names it a “false gospel.”

Sometimes people reject me because instinctively they know that by believing my testimony, they would have to give up their own souls to God and they do not trust God with their souls. But every son of God, every soul who has been born of God’s Seed, is anointed. “For as lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” Matt. 24:27. I desire that all men would have the Messiah lightning in them. THIS is my message and THIS is what my message has always been. It is a GIFT. But those who love self and the world “cannot go there.”

But the anointing (Messiah, lightning) which you have received of him abideth in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing (messiah) teaches you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide in him. 1 John 2:27.

There were thousands in Yeshua’s day who were sincerely deceived by Satan and their religious leaders and who didn’t believe Yeshua’s testimony that God had sent him. But when God’s increased light shone upon their hearts and minds after Pentecost, they humbled themselves and welcomed the light. Those who had been deceived but who decided that they wanted to keep their deception out of self-interest, because the increased light had also revealed the cross it would bring to them, hardened their hearts in pride against it because they loved their own lives. The deception gave them a license to keep their own heart.

HE TEACHES IN PARABLES

In the events of the Consummation of the “marriage of the Lamb” that God brought about in the year 2000, He was desiring to give His people in this final generation a parable that would show them the key to translating to heaven without seeing physical death. God’s people would have to be married to Him in a very real way, not just a theoretical or theological way. There would be certain crucial, pivotal steps and signs in this process of a human becoming bonded to God in this way, which would reveal that a person had entered into the kind of relationship with Him that was required for translation.

God designed that this crucial and pivotal process be revealed by two witnesses, because “at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.” Deut. 19:15. So Father married two witnesses to the Anointed Spirit in me, the Lamb of God. And in the steps and signs He unfolded as He brought about His Son’s literal, physical “marriage of the Lamb,” and provided two witnesses to testify of its process and fulfillment, He revealed the steps and signs that occur in the very real spiritual process that Father takes every desirous soul through when He marries that soul to Himself in order to take him from this earth by translation.

I have given clear testimony that what I carried out at Strong City was by God’s express command. If it were not true that God dictated my events, I would say so. God was the One who Himself arranged “the marriage of the Lamb” that He had foretold. Everyone should follow God’s expressed command. When God draws the soul and bonds the soul to Himself, the soul’s “old marriage” with its flesh is dissolved. “If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26, 27, NAB.

A soul who is living by the divine faith that God has given, understands and believes my testimony because of his own personal experience of being forced and impelled by God. For when a soul is no longer living by its human faith and will, it is no longer in control of its own life, but can be forced by God to always do His will, instead. I know very well that after the Anointing appeared in me in 2000, my life was not about getting blessed by God, my life was about being forced by Him. He said, “You told Me before I brought you to the new land here, ‘Father just put Your footsteps down and I will step in them.’ You said you would just do whatever I did, so this is what we’re now doing.” I know I was forced. And I know I was forced anyway, no matter my resistance, no matter my thoughts that there was no way I was going to do something, no matter my conscience or my salvation. He forced me to do His will, anyway, because this is what my heart actually wanted to do. Paul said he was “constrained” by Christ. He understood. That Greek word means, “to impel the soul,” and impel means “urge, drive or force someone to do something; propel.”

THE EVILS OF SELF-MANAGEMENT

There are souls who have a very precise and careful management of themselves. They carefully follow the rules most of the time. They have a strong force of the will. But the force of their will is carefully managed for their own best self-interests, even the self-interest of going to heaven when they die. These souls may have a powerful influence in the world or in their church. But this careful force of the will is not good enough for heaven. It is tainted with the self and the strong will of the soul, swallowed up and consumed by the intense desire to have things their way. Self-interest does not enter heaven – even if it good self-interest. But God draws even the weakest and the most unworthy and ungifted, as I am, and offers us an opportunity to simply follow His Voice. When we follow His righteousness and not fall into our own strong force of the will through rebellion, we are counted righteous, as righteous as He is. But of our own selves we know that we are “wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” Rev. 3:17.

The wicked have a strong force of the will that they count as righteousness, but God counts as “filthy rags,” because they use their force of the will to keep themselves alive and under their own control. They will not die to themselves, they cannot go there. They do not know that they are wretched and miserable and naked. The strong force of our will should only be used to follow God’s instructions to our souls and never used to protect our self-interests and self-protection. Yes, we will suffer at the horns of the beast, and we will be persecuted, but that only serves to take from us the last of our earthliness and our love of the world.

Yeshua (Jesus) did not go to the cross so that we would not have to go there. He did not go to the cross so that we could go party with our worldly friends without any salvation concerns. No. He went to the cross so that we would have His life and we would be enabled to go to our own cross and bear the trial and suffering that comes with it. I would have never been able to bear the cross of my imprisonment without the Life that Yeshua provided for me on His cross. Without this Life I would have immediately changed my behavior to please the other inmates and try to impress them. I watched many professed Christians do that. There are many professed Christians who try to be friends with the world by adopting their ways. God’s anointed never do that. Yeshua gave me the strength to face the force of the beast and patiently bear that force to the end.

Humans have no idea how interestedly and intricately their innermost thoughts and feelings are being studied and judged by heaven, but God is recording everything within them. It is all on God’s recording, His divine memory card. And not only are their thoughts and feelings recorded, but their true heart. And our human nature doesn’t have any idea what its true heart is. But God has it on record and it is indelibly etched in time. If people really knew that what they think while they’re standing in line at the local store is being recorded by God, they would realize how interestedly heaven is observing them.

True, intensely humble repentance, which can only come from God, is the only nullifier of all the charges against us. Deep repentance, acknowledging one’s crimes that God has shown the soul, and agreeing with Him, takes away all of the condemnation when the process is completed. God erases it from His record book. Humble repentance eliminates our condemnation, because no one would be saved otherwise. This humble repentance comes only from God, and it comes as a gift after He has broken open the soul to need it and receive it. And God truly knows when that “humble repentance” is only an act, contrived for the purpose of the strong will and force of one’s self-interests. Some poor souls walk around all “humble” while they are just full of themselves. They notice their humility and that notice turns it into gross and self-interested pride.

THE STATE ACCUSED ME FOR THEIR OWN CRIMES

Some souls, such as the district attorney in my legal case, accused me of using my “authority” to coerce people, imagining that my “cult” followed me because I forced them to do what I wanted. But the truth is, I have never used force or coercion or manipulation against anyone at any time in our land. It is against my nature. I have always said, “Follow your heart.” I have always supported any soul to do what they desired. And, I have always helped souls to be honest with themselves about what it was they really wanted, even if it was to leave God. Whatever their options were that they were considering, I would show them what the effects would be from what they were deciding between so they could intelligently choose for themselves what they really wanted. And then I would support them in their decision.

There have been some souls who heard the truth from me and then forced themselves against their own will to try and follow what I said. This caused them to believe that I was forcing them. I have no such unction in me. This force over others is a power in the world. The earth and the world may use force, but I never do. This force is easily seen in the military from the drill instructor. It is easily seen in the tax man who will take your house if you don’t pay up. The world uses force against one’s will and conscience, but I never do.

The state has revealed over and over again that it uses the very force and manipulation that it accused me of. For example, in these days the state has “thought police,” and the state will kidnap a family’s children if it feels that they’re not being taught along the proper social lines or they don’t think right. They will force and enforce punishment on those who don’t speak according to the current social norms. People will be fined or put in prison for assumed offenses, as I was. And this motivating spirit of force that possesses the state, it placed upon me, which is entirely wrong. I am not coming from where they’re coming from in any way. The state’s mentality is truly the mentality of a cult.

Our present “Democracy” has been described as a “benevolent dictatorship.” I believe that is true. But the “benevolent” is misunderstood. What that actually means is that they smile and act nice while they force us, instead of yelling and cursing while they force us, as all normal dictatorships would. They “benevolently” kidnap our children instead of kidnapping them violently. The state has replaced righteousness with being nice. It is truly alright to be nice, but “nice” is not justice and truth.

Another simple example of this force is, when I was young and the United States was a free country, you could decide whether to use a seatbelt or not in your car. Now the state thinks for you and doesn’t give you freedom to think for yourself. It decides for you that you must use a seat belt in your car. You must use certain kinds of car seats for your children. They have assumed ownership of your children. And they have applied their own motivations of force and coercion and ownership of people, onto me, and accused me for what they do. Those in government and law “enforcement,” projected onto me, what they’re guilty of, imagining that I am as they are. God judges them by the judgment with which they have judged me, and so God will now “force” them and “accuse” them, as they have done to me.

Therefore wait for Me, says the LORD, against the day when I arise as accuser. For it is My decision to gather together the nations, to assemble the kingdoms, in order to pour out upon them My wrath, all My blazing anger. For in the fire of My jealousy shall all the earth be consumed. Zeph. 3:8, NAB.

Modern religion has become utterly slovenly in its faith and its gospel. They don’t pray to be married to God, but instead, they pray to get some designer furniture, or a college education, or some vain relationship. Can you imagine Jesus preaching to the five thousand and saying, “If you give me money, then God will give you money”? It’s time for this evil to pass away. In an hour it will be gone. (Rev. 18:19)

When a nation such as the United States, and especially New Mexico in my case, departs from justice after so much light of evidence and witness from God has been given, the Lord declares of that nation, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen and is become the habitation of devils and the hold of every foul spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Rev. 18:2. The willing injustices and evils perpetrated by state and national leaders, and those who vote for them, are making their mark. It is the mark of men, the mark of the beast. But it is written of the beast, “…he shall be broken without hand.” Dan. 8:25.

The question is asked in Scripture, “Can unjust judges be your allies, those who create burdens in the name of the law, those who conspire against the just and condemn the innocent to death? Surely the Lord Yahweh our God will destroy them.” Psalms 94:20, 21-23, NAB.

For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land [of Travesser]. Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it [we have seen that he is a controlling and violent sex offender]. This [accusation] thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me. Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord. Psalm 35: 20-23.
