Strangers in the Ministry
Isaiah 61:5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
KJV Leviticus 10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.
KJV Numbers 16:1 Now Korah, the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On, the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took men: 2 And they rose up before Moses, with certain of the children of Israel, two hundred and fifty princes of the assembly, famous in the congregation, men of renown:
3 And they gathered themselves together against Moses and against Aaron, and said unto them, Ye take too much upon you, seeing all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is among them: wherefore then lift ye up yourselves above the congregation of the Lord? 4 And when Moses heard it, he fell upon his face: 5 And he spake unto Korah and unto all his company, saying, Even to morrow the Lord will shew who are his, and who is holy; and will cause [him] to come near unto him: even him whom he hath chosen will he cause to come near unto him. 6 This do; Take you censers, Korah, and all his company; 7 And put fire therein, and put incense in them before the Lord to morrow: and it shall be that the man whom the Lord doth choose, he shall be holy: ye take too much upon you, ye sons of Levi.
Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. 2 And they said, Hath the Lord indeed spoken only by Moses? hath he not spoken also by us? And the Lord heard it. 3 (Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.) 4 And the Lord spake suddenly unto Moses, and unto Aaron, and unto Miriam, Come out ye three unto the tabernacle of the congregation. And they three came out. 5 And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they both came forth. 6 And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will speak unto him in a dream. 7 My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house. 8 With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses? 9 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against them; and he departed.

Leviticus 16:12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail: 13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the Lord, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:
Job 41:18 By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. 19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out. 20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron. 21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.
2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
KJV Exodus 3:2 And the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Acts 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Crown of thorns
KJV Isaiah 28:1 Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! 2 Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand. 3 The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:
II Samuel 23:6 But the sons of Belial shall be all of them as thorns thrust away, because they cannot be taken with hands:
Matthew 27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
Matthew 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

KJV Genesis 40:1 And it came to pass after these things, that the butler of the king of Egypt and his baker had offended their lord the king of Egypt. 2 And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers, against the chief of the butlers, and against the chief of the bakers. 3 And he put them in ward in the house of the captain of the guard, into the prison, the place where Joseph was bound. 4 And the captain of the guard charged Joseph with them, and he served them: and they continued a season in ward. 5 And they dreamed a dream both of them, each man his dream in one night, each man according to the interpretation of his dream, the butler and the baker of the king of Egypt, which were bound in the prison.
Body of Christ
Psalm 40:6 Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. 7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, 8 I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.
KJV John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
History of Usurpation of the Priesthood
No one can become a minister of God just because he wants to be one. You cannot go to school to become a "man of God". You cannot trust dreams, visions and unctions urging you to spout your limited knowledge before men and assume you are "called" by God! There is an important reason for these words. It is because God has allowed devils to continue to compete with Him. God "set two ways before us" starting with Adam and Eve in the Garden.
"See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil, Deuteronomy 30:15. "Two ways hath God given to the sons of men, and two inclinations, and two kinds of action, and two modes of action, and two issues. Therefore all things are by twos, one over against the other. For there are two ways of good and evil, and with these are two inclinations in our breasts discriminating them", Testament of Asher I:3-5 (LBB).
What happened with Pharaoh's magicians and Moses was just the beginning. Always in every generation God has allowed the devil to compete with Him for the leadership of His children. Angels assigned to men always have to fight competing devils for control of men. Elijah had to fight with the false prophets of the temple and the groves. Jesus had to fight devils on the mount of temptation and in the Pharicees and chief priests. And today devils have "sent" a plethora of ministers into the world masquerading as men of God. Just because you feel there is a need and a cause for helping men and you feel compelled, that is not a sign that you should get involved. Devils may be urging you to become a minister to help them spread their lies. God ONLY chooses His men and elevates them to the priesthood when He is ready.
Psalm 75:4 I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn: 5 Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck. 6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. 7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
God does not send His students to a seminary or Bible school or a theologian for training. He does the teaching Himself!
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
Isaiah 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths [that] they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Psalm 23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psalm 25:4 Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. 5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Psalm 50: 16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or [that] thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son. 21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set [them] in order before thine eyes. 22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
II Baruch 15: And as 4 regards what thou hast said "Man knows not Thy judgement" -- On this account hear, and I will 5 speak to thee, and hearken, and I will cause thee to hear My words. Man would not rightly have understood My judgement, unless he had accepted the law, and I had instructed him in understanding.
There is not one man on earth now or in the past who can teach you the Word. "The Book" is sealed from men and only Jesus could open it, Revelation 5:1-5. All "talents" come from God and He gives them to those whom He deems to be "worthy"! You can go to Bible schools and seminaries and read all the theological books from past writers, or read in context, or any other scheme you choose and it will not help you! NO man can open the Book, loosen the seals, open it, and read and understand its content. Your DD degrees and credentials will avail you nothing! There is no way anyone can defeat Revelation 5:1-5 despite human arrogance and vain pride! God and Christ and the Archangels are masters and keepers of the Word and they teach select men ONLY at God's command.
Now let us go to our HEADLINE. Nadab and Abihu, Dathan, Abiram, their company of men, and even Miriam and Aaron got into trouble by presuming God had chosen them or that they had equal authority with Moses. No man can elevate himself before God! God elevates whom he elevates and every one else will do well to keep low, Isaiah 2:10-17. Those who challenge God's will are soon cut down!
The devil does not care whom he uses. He will use a common man as a prop or the chosen such as Aaron and Miriam to cause trouble. The fact of the matter is devils are "briars and thorns". All men carry a cross and all men are "crowned with thorns". The objective of the angels is to prevent the crown of thorns from piercing our thoughts and misleading us. Our HEADLINE shows a series of incidents God allowed for tutorial purposes and for our learning today. These incidents are affects in the ministry today. There are many persons in the ministry who are doing the same thing as Nadab and Abihu, Dathan, Abiram and their company, and Aaron and Miram. Their behavior is due to the influence of their "crown of thorns" as they are actively being crucified! This letter is designed to explain the process.
Isaiah 61:5 And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
This part of our HEADLINE is terrible! It is true! And because the scriptures cannot be broken, it helps explains how the "Dragon overcame the saints" and befuddled the churches, Daniel 7:21-22, 8:8-13; Revelation 13:4-7. "Crowns of thorns" are leading the preachers and feeding the flocks in their congregations.
Isaiah 9:15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. 16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.
These are the mammon loving man-made "elder son" preachers in the churches, the "hirelings" of men. Lucifer has become a "strange fire" for these men. He has given then corrupt incense to burn in their censors. Devils are alien entities forming a crown on the heads of preachers as in our definitions above.
Habakkuk 1:4 Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.
They pierce the minds of men by imputing wrong thoughts and misleading words.
II Corinthians 10:3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
One senses things through his brain. Hence the human mind is the "sensor" referred to by the allegorical "censer". Incense in this case is justifiable anger at sin or wicked behavior (not men victimized), again from our definitions. Sweet incense is CORRECT wrath. Corrupt incense is perverted wrath as exemplified by the "elder son", who was angry at mercy the Father showed to his "prodigal" brother. This "screwball" refused God and would not JOIN Him in the feast of love and FAMILY reunion! All preachers who are angry at "sinners" and cannot rejoice with the Father over the salvation He gives them at the point of death ů. do carry "strange incense"! This incense is burned when devils kindle their wrath to such an extent that they cannot forgive them and instead petition God to burn them in the lake of fire in the penalty of the kingdom of darkness. Devils have power to create "strange fire" as in our definitions above.
Many corrupt "doctrines according to the commandments of men" have been spawned in sermons by these preachers who feed them to their congregations every Sunday.
Matthew 15:8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Isaiah 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the Lord, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
These men speak against their "prodigal brethren" supposing that God is like them!? But the Father will reprove them all and set ALL PRODGALS in their Order of Angels on the day they die!
Psalm 50:16 But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth? 17 Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee. 18 When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers. 19 Thou givest thy mouth to evil, and thy tongue frameth deceit. 20 Thou sittest and speakest against thy brother; thou slanderest thine own mother's son. 21 These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes. 22 Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.
Thieves on crosses
Jesus was crucified with two thieves for a very good reason. It was a prophecy about what would happen in the ministry. Of course devils are against all human beings because we are the children of God. Pharaoh (Lucifer) is not inclined to let go of anyone. Therefore the best way for him to wage warfare against Mother Wisdom, the woman of Revelation 12, is to attack her children on every front. Those who seek God are a particular threat to their power. To neutralize this threat devils became false Gods, fake Christs, and imitation Holy Ghosts. They give men dreams and visions and speak with tongues through their mouths. Those seeking a sign from God are stool pigeons for this ploy in particular charismatics and Pentecostals. Just as God let devils produce miracles in competition with Moses, He has also allowed them to compete with the Holy Spirit. Speaking in tongues is no sign that the Holy spirit is upon you. More than likely it is Lucifer and company acting on you. If that spirit has convinced you that most of humanity will be destroyed with devils; if that spirit has you taking tithes and offerings; if that spirit has you preaching the doctrine of death and condemnation of men even though Jesus did away with it ... then you are definitely a stooge being used by devils to blindfold men through the ministry. The prophecy of the lamb-like beast coming out of the earth who speaks like a dragon is about YOU! Revelation 13:11. Devils abuse all human beings even those who willingly obey their policies. There is a cross for everyone. Therefore thieves in pulpits get crucified too. Lucifer is not too dumb to use the ministry to his advantage. If he is to attack the seed of the woman, the best way to do it is to control the preachers. These scriptures show his success over the churches: KJV Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; 22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
Daniel 8:8 Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. 10 And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. 11 Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. 12 And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
Revelation 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
The churches are corrals where devils employ "hireling" mammon-loving preachers to blindfold and fleece the sheep!
The WORD (all of it) is the BODY of Christ!
The WORD OF GOD is a collection of His thoughts delivered by the angels or "Holy Spirits" throughout time to certain chosen or elect writers who may be described as prophets, priests, scribes, wise-men, and psalmists. These WORDS came as dreams and visions, imputed thoughts, and words heard in the ear. In the case of Moses God also wrote with His own finger. In the case of Enoch, he was taken up and given dictations which he faithfully recorded and brought down to the earth for men. Starting with Adam and ending in the apostles' times there has been a drought of "hearing the Word of God" until the very end of time when God dictated again very deliberately to one man named "John". Men have heard "pretenders to be God" who imitated His style of communication and deceived men. These are demonic "men of sin", who sit on the bodies of men and "show themselves that they are God"! These have imitated the Holy Spirit and the Pentecostal experience. They also come to men in dreams and visions as phony Christs. There is a plethora of writings of this sort in human religious literature masquerading as truth, but it is darkness on paper. Those words are not the WORD of God but the writings of "unauthorized" men who have usurped the priesthood.
Whether it is the Archangels, who are the true Ark of God, or Jesus, or all the collection of writings God left for posterity, one thing is constant, no man can touch the WORD, nor open it or read it with understanding. Men still cannot see the Archangels, neither can they see Jesus. They still cannot understand nor appreciate the work of Jesus and they deny the depth of what that work means. Jesus is a name in the mouths of religionists, who fail to recognize the success of his accomplishment. The WORD of God in written form is filled with similes, metaphors, word parables, and living parables which are incidents in the lives of certain special actors which must be analyzed and interpreted. In the priesthood of Moses, these are the equivalent of the multicolored cloths, which covered the "holy things" in transport. The WORD OF GOD is the Tree of LIFE in another sense, and men still cannot eat the fruit even though they go to Bible schools and chew very hard. Four Archangels with fiery swords bar the way to it.
Devils have convinced men that they can break God's WORD about the seals over it and defeat the seals by intense study and reading in context. They have convinced men that going to their seminaries and Bible schools will give men power to understand the WORD which they need to become teachers of men. But I have news for all you preachers with DD degrees, all you Bible school graduates, and Christians everywhere. The WORD of GOD is all the writings of the Bible, the Apocrypha, and other apocryphal works you reject. And YOU STILL CANNOT BREAK THE SEALS nor understand the WORD no matter how hard you try. All the churches are under the claws of the Dragon, Daniel 7:21-22, 8:8-12; Matthew 24:1-2; Revelation 13:4-7,11. Much of what you think is true is devilish dribble of accusation and condemnation of men, which is impossible because it is "the doctrine of devils" and not the will of God. "Burning men with fire never entered His heart," Jeremiah 7:31, 19:5.
ALL of the WORD is the body of Christ . It is specifically "food" for the priest that God teaches. It is called "the Holy things" and unauthorized men cannot touch them, because it is not given to them to understand them.
John 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. 58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.... 63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Since Jesus is the Word in written form also, it is easy to see where the analogy of the baker and the butler who were imprisoned with Joseph fits. The baker offended in the "bread" area, and the butler erred in the "wine" area. There are many cooks in theological seminaries and in churches behind pulpits who are offending the Word-body (bread of) Christ. Abominable church councils a few hundred years ago started by "limiting the Holy One of Israel" (Psalm 78:41) by passing judgment on certain true works and denying their authenticity as legitimate words from God! They discourage men from reading and studying them. In the GOOD NEWS we use those very works that theologians have slandered because we acknowledge and recognize them as holy food for "US"!
The blood of Christ is also Word-wine. The "wine of joy" is something Jesus described in the parable of the prodigal son. The "elder son" was so angry with his brother that he boldly refused to enter into the Father's joy and celebrate the salvation of his brother whom he called a "sinner". There are many who have become "anti-Christ" by fighting and denying the salvation of all men through the blood of Christ shed on Calvary. There are men who sincerely hate the thought that God would show love for men like Hitler, Goliath, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffery Dahmer, devil worshippers, gays, atheists, agnostics, witches and men of other religions that we know are ridiculous. They say all men will not be saved and thus offend in the blood of Christ by "denying the power there of", II Timothy 3:5. Go to any church or Bible school. There you will find the "bakers" and "butlers", the thieves on crosses. Satan is not prejudiced! He crucifies them, too! He communicates with them via their crown of thorns.
Habakkuk 1:4 Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth.
Men are misled by these men, because they have not chosen the Lord for their Shepherd. They pay these men to lead them. That is why we refer to them as "hirelings of men" and "Judas-priests". God calls them "elder sons" in the parable of the prodigal son. You know them as your pastor and preacher or the Rev. next door or across the street. This is the meaning of two thieves crucified with Jesus.
There are many unauthorized men in the ministry sent there by demonic"strangers". These alien spirits control the preachers and have impaled the saints and the churches beneath their claws. Pharaoh has imprisoned them and will not let go! Therefore "strangers stand and feed the flocks and alien vinedressers keep God's vineyard". "Elder son" man-made hireling preachers are "instruments" and pawns devils employ. They crown their heads and pierce their thought while crucifying them. Devils give them strange incense (unjust anger) in their censers (heads) and set it afire. This results in many sermons pronouncing death and hellfire to our prodigal brethren who do not listen to them or join their churches. The Word calls this the "doctrine of condenmation and death" to men which Jesus voided, II Corinthians 3:7-12. To God it stinks! They teach their listeners to fear God according to their precepts and their commands. By doing so, they do a disservice to the Word-blood of Christ. By denying certain books God really gave to some of His writers, they offend in the Word-body of Christ by "piercing him in the side", Zechariah 12:10. By doing these things, they persecute the Word-Jesus and they think he is pleased with them, Daniel 9:26! They have slandered authentic works and labeled them as "apocrypha" and worse, "pseudepigrapha"! Some even counsel men not to read or to study them! To all of you readers, recognize where we are in time. It is time to wake up and "get real". This is HELL for us, and the devil is doing a "number" on all men, not just the churches. Satan's seat and any devil's seat is the head and body of men, Matthew 12:43-45. They form a crown of pride and a crown of thorns. See your fellow man as God views him. God has no respect of persons! God, your Father will deliver every captive from spiritual Egypt including all thieves on crosses along with human all "prodigals".
Luke 16:15And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
Can you say, "AMEN"?!
