You Can RUN, But You Can't Hide!
Isaiah 30:8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: 9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord: 10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: 11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us. 12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon: 13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant. 14 And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a sherd to take fire from the hearth, or to take water withal out of the pit
Psalm 2:7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. 10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.
You can run from the WORD of the Most High God all you want, but you cannot hide from the Judgment of the Heavenly Court. Whether you like it or not, you will face the written judgment. You will "take it" even if you are frightened and intimidated. Flights of mental fantasia will not help you. There is no hidden corner to which you can run, Psalm 139:7-12.
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. 17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. 19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report. 20 For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it: and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it. 21 For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act. 22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord God of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
REALITY is here and the WORDS of judgment are in effect NOW! Every man must come to grips with reality. This world is "the pits" and demons do dwell on ALL human beings. We carry them as "monkeys on our backs". Hiding your head in the sand and saying, "I don't want to see that or hear that" cannot change the fixed conditions for all men. Devils on your body do not want to face reality that their demise has come. They may persuade you to "Delete that email from GOOD NEWS and tell them to take you off their email list"! THAT CANNOT HELP! "NOW is the judgment of this world and NOW shall the prince of this world be cast out". When YOU READ the GOOD NEWS, the devils on your body are forced to face the judgment verdicts of the Heavenly Court! This torments them!
KJV John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
KJV John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
Enoch 55: 3 When I have desired to take hold of them by the hand of the angels on the day of tribulation and pain because of this, I will cause My chastisement and My wrath to abide upon them, saith 4 God, the Lord of Spirits. Yet mighty kings who dwell on the earth, ye shall have to behold Mine Elect One, how he sits on the throne of glory and judges Azazel, and all his associates, and all his hosts in the name of the Lord of Spirits.'
II Baruch And it will come to pass when the time of its consummation that it should fall has approached, then the principate of My Messiah will be revealed, which is like the fountain 8 and the vine, and when it is revealed it will root out the multitude of its host. And as touching that which thou hast seen, the lofty cedar, which was left of that forest, and the fact, that the vine spoke those words with it which thou didst hear, this is the word.
40 1 The last leader of that time will be left alive, when the multitude of his hosts will be put to the sword, and he will be bound, and they will take him up to Mount Zion, and My Messiah will convict 2 him of all his impieties, and will gather and set before him all the works of his hosts. And afterwards he will put him to death, and protect the rest of My people which shall be found in the place which 3 I have chosen. And his principate will stand for ever, until the world of corruption is at an end, 4 and until the times aforesaid are fulfilled. This is thy vision, and this is its interpretation.'
You coward humans, who are learning why this earth is called "spiritual Egypt" and why the Bible calls men "slaves and captives", cannot reverse the reality. This world is "hell", the prison chamber of devils, and we cannot shake these prisoners off our bodies. "Pharaoh will not let go". All men carry devils no matter how shocking and detestable this seems to your senses! You now have another incentive to leave this place. This world is not a playground! You ought to be very anxious to leave this earth and enter freedom, the promise land of Heaven!
Like Joshua and Caleb, we are not afraid to take on our enemies "where they are". The very thought of demons might frighten most men, but we have nothing to fear. They cannot do any greater harm to us than God allows. You have "carried" your enemies every day of your life. You were not afraid before you knew this, so do not be afraid now! Showing cowardice and fright now that we have told you these things is a bit ridiculous! Your fright will give the devils on your body greater confidence over you and they will mock you!
I want to point out the reference to the "potter's vessel" in both HEADLINE texts. "Potter's vessel" refers to human bodies.
KJV Isaiah 64:8 But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.
KJV word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. 3 Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 5 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the Lord. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
Do not assume that your Father has pleasure in cowards and weak children. You must honor the WORD (Son) that we have shown you in the GOOD NEWS. All "clay vessels" can be broken by the demonic iron rods. "He shall not spare, but he shall break the potter's vessels into shivers and pieces", Revelation 18:24. If YOU are chosen to be a jurist-witness and to hear the case of God VS the kingdom of devils, I suggest that you bear with your selection for JURY DUTY! I have told you before, this is not a man's work! God is doing ALL the work HERE! If you cannot accept that, maybe your body (clay vessel) will be used to convince you.
If you are a "chosen man of God selected by the Father", you cannot back away from the fray! The "anointing" is on you, and YOU WILL dance to His "music".
Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.
Jeremiah 20:9 Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
Jonah 1:2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me. 3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord, and went down to Joppa; and he found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go with them unto Tarshish from the presence of the Lord. 8 Then said they unto him, Tell us, we pray thee, for whose cause this evil is upon us; What is thine occupation? and whence comest thou? what is thy country? and of what people art thou? 9 And he said unto them, I am an Hebrew; and I fear the Lord, the God of heaven, which hath made the sea and the dry land. 10 Then were the men exceedingly afraid, and said unto him, Why hast thou done this? For the men knew that he fled from the presence of the Lord, because he had told them.
Because the Spirit of God endows you, YOU will not become an embarrassment to Heaven! You will be forced to STAND AND FIGHT! Do not take on Jeremiah's initial attitude, and do not flee like Jonah! Devils are a bunch of 6-inch tall, midget terrorists attempting to bind us by use of brain and central nervous system control like the Lilliputians bound Gulliver with ropes. We are a lot more powerful than they are because God is with us! Coward soldiers cannot carry the banner! It is better to send the "wimps" upstairs for refitting (remolding)! "Iron rods" will be more than happy to accomplish this!
Born to Live… Eternally!
You were born to live eternally as a member of the FAMILY of God. The Father chose this method of comparison and contrast and precept and example as a means of educating us. As a result we must all face the contrast presented by the kingdom of darkness on the earth-stage. All generations preceding us went through this trial and so will we. There is no way to escape our destiny of LIFE. Devils were born for adversity and extinction. They are "fall-guys" and negative, non-living, teaching tools, robot machines, which supply the contrasting experience to our true nature and ways.
In explaining God's "use" of demonic android "tools" a co-worker wrote:
"With respect to demons, you can help people out by telling them that in the final analysis demons are a masterful piece of thinking by God. Since all sin will be ascribed to them, we will be judged to have been 100% pure without an ounce of sin laid on us. In other words, He has been merciful to us in designing demons so there will never be a hint of evil within the real family. A worse case would have been if there were no demons and we had to bear the actual stigma of sin on our own shoulders. Then shame would trail us for all eternity. It is much more of a comfort knowing that one's true spirit is defect-free, 100% pure, can do no wrong and fall apart".
Every devil including Lucifer and Babylon was born to die, that is to be erased by fire permanently forever with no memorial, not even as a memory. God will erase the memory of the earth-experience from our minds as He "makes all things new", Isaiah 54:4, 65:16-18. There is no way possible for any demon to escape his planned "termination". These things are fixed by the Creator, and they shall be done!
RSV 4Es 7:1 When I had finished speaking these words, the angel who had been sent to me on the former nights was sent to me again, 2 and he said to me, "Rise, Ezra, and listen to the words that I have come to speak to you." 3 I said, "Speak, my lord." And he said to me, "There is a sea set in a wide expanse so that it is broad and vast, 4 but it has an entrance set in a narrow place, so that it is like a river. 5 If any one, then, wishes to reach the sea, to look at it or to navigate it, how can he come to the broad part unless he passes through the narrow part? 6 Another example: There is a city built and set on a plain, and it is full of all good things; 7 but the entrance to it is narrow and set in a precipitous place, so that there is fire on the right hand and deep water on the left; 8 and there is only one path lying between them, that is, between the fire and the water, so that only one man can walk upon that path. 9 If now that city is given to a man for an inheritance, how will the heir receive his inheritance unless he passes through the danger set before him?" 10 I said, "He cannot, lord." And he said to me, "So also is Israel's portion. 11 For I made the world for their sake, and when Adam transgressed my statutes, what had been made was judged. 12 And so the entrances of this world were made narrow and sorrowful and toilsome; they are few and evil, full of dangers and involved in great hardships. 13 But the entrances of the greater world are broad and safe, and really yield the fruit of immortality. 14 Therefore unless the living pass through the difficult and vain experiences, they can never receive those things that have been reserved for them.
(Also II Esdras in the Oxford Annotated Apocrypha)
As you can see from this, you were born into the fray and placed in your mother's womb by the Father. Only death is the exit from this "iron furnace" and that will certainly come for everyone in due course. Get it fixed in your mind that crying, pouting, becoming angry and bitter, or saying, "I refuse to read the GOOD NEWS" cannot change the format of your life, nor your destiny fixed by the Almighty. He consulted none of us for our opinion about the execution of His PLAN. All we know is we woke up after popping from our mother's womb. We became conscious, and now we have discovered a double-world of visible and invisible reality.
RSV 4Es 6:1 And he said to me, "At the beginning of the circle of the earth, before the portals of the world were in place, and before the assembled winds blew, 2 and before the rumblings of thunder sounded, and before the flashes of lightning shone, and before the foundations of paradise were laid, 3 and before the beautiful flowers were seen, and before the powers of movement were established, and before the innumerable hosts of angels were gathered together, 4 and before the heights of the air were lifted up, and before the measures of the firmaments were named, and before the footstool of Zion was established, 5 and before the present years were reckoned; and before the imaginations of those who now sin were estranged, and before those who stored up treasures of faith were sealed -- 6 then I planned these things, and they were made through me and not through another, just as the end shall come through me and not through another."
You may march to the beat of a different drummer for the time being, but you will be made to straighten up and fly right! You will dance to His music. You are not "a free mortal agent" who can do your own thing! You are a child of God and you belong to Him. YOU WILL do His thing! Ezekiel 20:32-38. A tombstone says, "You will"! Ecclesiastes 12:7; Jeremiah 18:1-6, 31:31-33; Luke 20:36-38; Hebrews 12:22-24.
Values and Priorities
Are you enjoying life in "the pits"? What time is it?
II Kings 5:25 But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither. 26 And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants? 27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.
Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Matthew 10:28 Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. 29 And Jesus answered and said,Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, 30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life. 31 But many that are first shall be last; and the last first.
Luke 14:16 Then said he unto him, A certain man made a great supper, and bade many: 17 And sent his servant at supper time to say to them that were bidden, Come; for all things are now ready. 18 And they all with one consent began to make excuse. The first said unto him, I have bought a piece of ground, and I must needs go and see it: I pray thee have me excused. 19 And another said, I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to prove them: I pray thee have me excused. 20 And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come. 21 So that servant came, and shewed his lord these things. Then the master of the house being angry said to his servant, Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in hither the poor, and the maimed, and the halt, and the blind. 22 And the servant said, Lord, it is done as thou hast commanded, and yet there is room. 23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.
Ecclesiastes 12:13; Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
What is your purpose for being? Is it to spend your days working all the time and seeking entertainment? Is it to be a slave in the pursuit of money and to suffer paranoia every time the stock market quivers? Do you think this world is "a nice place to be", where you should seek fun and enjoyment? Do you want to "live on earth as long as I can"? Are you "too busy" to wake up to reality and see what God has designed this world to be? How do you value your life? What have you done for God lately? I am sure you want to remain in a constant state of blessings, but the question is "Are you fulfilling YOUR WHOLE DUTY"? Do not make yourself overly concerned about making a life in "this pit", so that you cannot attend the feast of the Most High God! Tomorrow on this earth is promised to no man! Learn who and what your first love is! (Hint: "What is the first great commandment?). It is not your job, or your fortune, or your wife, or your family, or your "self"! You must deny your "self"! Only what you do for God is worthwhile. The measure of a man is not what is in his bank account or how esteemed he is to men. It is how close you come to the fullness of the stature of Christ. "Love not the world; neither the things that are in the world" is advice from one of my favorite teachers.
Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. 25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
How you set your priorities in this life determines your value and worth to God. If you give your Father the best of your service, He will return the best to you, Luke 6:38. If you are slow to perform and you do it half-heartedly, how can you expect God to bless you abundantly in all things? I think we need to learn "how" to treat God with the love we want and expect for ourselves. If you have your priorities in the right order, you may feast with us in the GOOD NEWS. Do not be too busy with "other things" so that you cannot create time to READ our four volumes of light. So much peace, joy, and discovery await you there. When you learn how to suffer, you can turn it into a plus. Devils are a bunch of very short jerks, and you need to treat them that way. The best way to torment them is to keep the GOOD NEWS before their eyes. They DO NOT want to see it and when you read it, you force them to face the Court verdicts written in it, justification for ALL MEN and annihilation for devils only. They need YOU to get it from before their eyes! You ought to see how they cry! That is what they get for hanging on to our bodies! When you are busy doing other activities you provide them relief from the fire! Are you a soldier of the cross? Then examine your priorities! Act like this is the WAR zone that it is! You cannot afford to sleep and become distracted by "the cares of this life". Serpents patrol your perimeter! Your body is under constant siege, Habakkuk 1:4; Matthew 12:43-45.
II Chronicles 16:9 For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.
Psalm 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.
If your service and your offering to God are like Cain's offering, you will have a problem. Jealousy over the offering of others is asinine especially when it is "God in us doing all the works"! Philippians 2:13. What ever you do for God must be done with a willing and contrite heart. Hopefully you will do it out of love for the whole FAMILY.
This world is a battle-ground, and a war-zone for humanity. It was cast as such from the beginning when God sent the kingdom of darkness into a circuitous fall. Devils discovered they could break their fall by climbing aboard the bodies of men and animals. They re-established their kingdom on the backs of men and animals. Men born into this earth have been extremely naïve, because they cannot see demons, nor feel them hanging on. They presume devils are not on them. That presumption is far from the truth! Every human body is a "temple of God". We comprise the building blocks of the spiritual City of Jerusalem. In the ancient acts, enemies always surrounded the City and its walls in siege to make it fall. This tactic had to approximate the true human condition. Devils dwell on the bodies of men and lay siege against each person to overcome and enslave him. Men do not consciously think of the entire earth as a battle-zone because they associate "war" as a conflict between visible men and military forces. But the WAR began with Michael and his forces in Heaven and it continues daily in this pit, Revelation 12:7-11,17. Jesus taught us that we carry our worst enemies on our very backs. They consider our bodies "their house" and property, Matthew 12:43-45. Habakkuk wrote, "Because devils surround us, wrong judgment results", Habakkuk 1:4. Most men are content to remain in spiritual slumber and ignorance of spiritual reality. To them the world is a neutral place and "life is what you make of it". Nevertheless devils have made hell in the lives of men on earth. Peace is always temporary followed by bloodshed and hot-wars. Men are slaughtered individually in our communities by other men controlled by their demons, Revelation 18:24. Rapes, fraud, oppression, greed, miscarriage of justice, lying, thefts, brutality, drug addiction etc., are the kinds of abuses men face daily in all nations. Because these things may not happen to you personally, you may not think of this life as "hell". But these are the kinds of tortures humanity suffers as a result of being in the pit with these demons. Yes! We dwell in hell and devils see to it that our human family catches hell! We suffer ethnic warfare and religious warfare and racial pride and prejudice, and we think this world is OKAY. Worse than that is most men are blind and asleep to the reality that this place has always been a battleground and a testing place. The world is not "all there is" and this life is not the end when we die. This world is only the first step in our march to our eternal destiny. God created it as a "kindergarten", and those who seek understanding will wake up and face the reality of our true purpose for being. God is first and foremost on our list of priorities, and we have learned what really counts. The things of this life can become veils and blinders to detract us from seeing and understanding spiritual reality. There is a feast of light going on in the GOOD NEWS. Men may run from the truth and close their eyes to what is really happening. But devils are on us and hope to keep us blind and ignorant of their presence. Everyone will not wake up. But blessed are your eyes, who see and participate in the feast of the Lord. You will have more real joy NOW than the rest of your captive brethren. To our other readers, you might as well face it, "you can run, but you cannot hide". You carry a "badger skin veil" of devils over your temple body! Exodus 26:1,14.No one can escape God and opt out of these things planned for this FAMILY. How do you deal with it?
