The Purpose of “The Revelation”

Important:  This Post along with “Dreams, Visions, Messages & Conspiracies” was sent out to our email subscribers on April 4, 2015.  We did not send it out.  They are both old Posts from 2013 and apparently were sent out by the Spirit of the Living God together on one page even though they were both posted originally on separate pages.  This shows the importance of both of these Messages at this time.  We are re-posting them for those who read this Blog.

The Purpose of “The Revelation”
 
          "As those who are seeking that Life, that Truth, that understanding from the “Book of Revelation”, the Blessings of My Spirit and My Kingdom are released to reveal the greater understandings and to receive the Life of those understandings into your beings.
          This Book reveals that Kingdom Life; that Life that is coming into the earth; that is establishing the Truth of Heaven into the earth that those forces of the enemy can no longer withstand the Light that is being brought forth.
          This “Book of The Revelation” opens the spirit and the soul to hearing more clearly and seeing more clearly the Word made manifest and the Word brought forth.  It is a Book of symbolism that the soul is aware of…the mind is not.
          The Power of the Spirit opens the way for the soul to receive the Truth and the understandings of this Book.  So the Spirit which understands all things in Me is projecting those words, those elements of this Book into the soul that it is lifted into the Realms of the Spirit and is able to discern the Truth of that Life that was given unto you by that One Who is the Son of The Most High.
          These forces, these angels, these beings that are revealed in this Book, these are as messages to the soul, to the understandings of the soul, to the cleansing of the soul.  The upliftment that takes place into the Spirit, into the Holy of Holies, into the very Presence of The Most High God, into the Realms of Understanding and Glory that the mind cannot comprehend.
          As you study this Book, as you open your hearts to this, the words become alive and the Blessing is released."
 
 
Rev. 3:1 (KJV)  Blessed [is] he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time [is] at hand.

Dreams, Visions, Messages & Conspiracies

Important:  This Post along with “The Purpose of ‘The Revelation’" was sent out to our email subscribers yesterday.  We did not send it out.  They are both old Posts from 2013 and apparently were sent out by the Spirit of the Living God together on one page even though they were both posted originally on separate pages.  This shows the importance of both of these Messages at this time.  We are re-posting them for those who read this Blog.

Dreams, Visions, Messages & Conspiracies
 
          “Those things which are given unto men in the forms of dreams, in the forms of visions, in the forms of messages, these are ways in which My Spirit is accessing those upon the earth who seek My Will, who seek after My Word, for this is the time that My Spirit is prevalent in manifesting through these avenues through men, through women, through children.  These are avenues of My Spirit to reveal My Will and to open the way for the Kingdom Life to be expressed and manifest in the earth.
          There is much confusion in these areas, for those things which come to men must come in Purity, in Holiness, in Righteousness, and as there is the seeking of these things, the purity of the message, the dream and the interpretation of dreams, the visions are clear in the projection of that which I Am doing in the earth at this time.
          The discernment of these things to the hearts and minds of people as they are presented to the world through many avenues at this time, the consciousness of those who seek understanding must be focused on My Word and My Kingdom.  To receive all things as from Me is to create confusion in the hearts and in the minds and in the souls of your beings. 
          To discern what is of Me and what is of those forces of deception that are in the earth, these are ways in which your heart is able to receive the understanding and the discernment of these things: if they create anxiety, if they create fear, if they create a wanting to hide yourself and a giving up of those things which are True, these are of deception and of the enemy.  If they create in you a desire for that closer walk with Me, for that deeper trust in Me, for that complete surrender to Me, these are of My Spirit and are openings for My Word to be manifest in and through you.
          As there is the upliftment and the looking up and the focus upon the Kingdom Life, this is a great expansion of your beings in opening the way for the Truth of Oneness with Me to be accessed in your life in the manifest world.
          Those forces of deception and of fear and of doubt and of confusion, these, no matter what they come through, if it is a dream, if it is a vision, if it is a message that is purported to be from Me and it creates doubt, confusion in the mind, fear in the heart and a depression of the soul, know that this is not of Me and it is to be cast off and destroyed by the Word of Righteousness that I have placed in you.
          In the area of the conspiracies, know that there is one over-riding conspiracy and this is to keep the souls of men in bondage and to prevent the souls of men from entering into the Kingdom Life.  This is taking place on multitudes of levels: through governments, through financial institutions, through those forces of deception in the earth that are creating the fear in the hearts of men that have no solutions only doubt, only hopelessness, only depression.
          There are many ways that these conspiracies are activated in the hearts of people, and are being brought forth through those who are as Watchmen for My Kingdom.  To view these, there is the need to access the Spirit of Truth within you and to realize that they are to bring you into a deeper relationship with Me and a deeper walk with My Spirit.  If they create anxiety in your hearts, it is well to keep them from you and not to project them into the Reality of My Kingdom.
          The preparation for these times by the souls of men are to be wise in discerning the leading of My Spirit.  The wisdom of being prepared is the Wisdom of the Spirit in your hearts.  This creates the understanding of “Occupy until I come”, for the Words that I have spoken unto you are Words of Life and Hope and Victory.”
 
Q.       What does it mean regarding the conspiracies: “If they create anxiety in your hearts, it is well to keep them from you and not to project them into the Reality of My Kingdom”?
 
          “The projection of these fears and doubts and concerns into your souls, into your spirits.  This is the Kingdom Life avenue in your beings, and as you take them into your being as fears and doubts, you are polluting the Light and Love and Peace that I have for you within you.”
 
Q.       Would You clarify and amplify on the understanding of that Scripture: “Occupy till I come”?
 
          “As in this parable likening the Kingdom of Heaven to the situation, in this, there is the lesson of your souls to continue in the works of the Spirit.  Those things that are as talents to be used for the purpose of the Kingdom and to gain and to receive greater understanding.
          It is through this occupation of this earth by those of the Kingdom that the Kingdom is released through them and manifest in them to reveal My Love, My Grace and My Truth into the earth.
          When the times of this world become dark and oppressive, it is for those who are of My Household to occupy through the Power of My Spirit: being Light, being Truth, being Hope, being Faith, that the world may see and know and many turn to the Truth and the Way of My Kingdom.”
 
          “The attitude and the understandings of the dreams, visions and conspiracies, those things that are brought forth into manifestation in the world through those who trust in Me and those who are of My Household, these open the consciousness of My People to that which is taking place in the earth.
          It is for My People to discern and develop discernment concerning the message that is given to them through these and through those who are having experiences and sharing experiences, to take them within your beings and to allow My Spirit to give forth the message that is for you in these things that there is the acceptance of them by My Spirit that is in you that creates a strengthening of your beings, a determination, a greater depth of understanding and a greater hope in My soon Return.
          As you acknowledge that these things that are coming upon the earth must be according to My Word, according to the Plan of My Salvation in the earth, there is that Joy that springs up within you. 
          For those who are not connected to Me, there is a fear that springs up in them.  As they experience this fear and this panic within the being, it is for them to turn to Me and trust in Me and receive of My Love and My Grace and My Mercy.  This then breaks the bondage that is used by the enemy to manipulate the emotions creating a pattern of fear and doubt and care that opens the way for greater deception and greater manipulation by those who are used by the enemy in the world at this time.
          As your hearts are free from the fear through the trusting in My Love and the surrender to My Will, there is that anticipation and that opening for the heart to be filled with greater Peace, with greater Love, with greater Compassion.
          The enemy of your souls brings forth much deception in the earth in the area of conspiracies, for there is false information being presented, even to My People, that, at times, these are used to create a greater deception in the world. 
          As there is that Life that is from Above and the turning of your souls to that Life, these conspiracies and these manipulations are discerned by your spirits, and those who trust in Me and who work the works of My Spirit: these watchman, these dreamers, these visionaries are giving forth the Purpose and the Will of My Spirit to open the way for the salvation of many souls.  Even though there are those who fear and care concerning these things, it is the opening for them to receive My Love and the Truth of My Kingdom.
          As you move forward in whatever you do through the guidance of My Spirit, do it with the understanding that I Am with you and I Am working through you to reveal that Life from Above.  In this, there is access to My Spirit through all avenues that are sought in this world.
          As the darkness comes, know that it is a precursor to the more Glorious Light.  The understanding of this relieves the consciousness and the mind of the being to release the judgments and the fears and concerns of this world system.”
 
 
Joel 2:28 (NKJV) "And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. 29. And also on [My] menservants and on [My] maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” (Also repeated in Acts 2:17,18)
 
Luke 19:13 (KJV) “And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.”  (Read Luke 19:11-27 for full Parable.)

The Truth About Relationships

April 20, 2001
 
Q.       I feel that I need to make some changes in this relationship with our friend, Dannie.  Is there something that would help me understand this relationship with him and how I should relate with him? 
 
          “This is a difficult area of understanding, for all relationship that you experience is within your own consciousness.  For it is that Life that is projecting itself through the Creation and the creatures of Creation that opens your understanding to patterns of self, patterns of the world, patterns that are discernible through the Spirit. 
          These then are always handled through the surrender of that which is the outward manifestation and focusing upon that Life that is the Reality of all things and is directly connected to your being.
          In this, there is the freedom to move through the world in Power and in Love and in Peace.  This is being brought forth at this time for you to gain this understanding and to be freed from the relationship of others and have One Relationship with The One Who is all things throughout the Universe from the beginning of time, Ever-Present, All-Loving Spirit of The Living God.”
 
Q.       When I am able to do this, how would this be different then with Dannie?
 
          “When you step into the Spirit of that Life, when you are that Life, when you know that you are that Life and that Life is the Life of all, there is that release of that sense of personal manifestation of being and there is the operating and functioning in the Power of the Love of The Christ toward all through you.
          This then, as you are in Him and He is in you, you are moved by that Life to be and do to others for others those things which The Father wills.”
 
Q.       I assume that what comes forth then I should not judge, but just trust that it serves His Purpose and Will?
 
          “This is the goal, for that Life that is the All in all is capable of bringing forth the harmony.  But those patterns of consciousness of the mind of man seek to manipulate, to understand, to judge, to confuse the energy flow of others and of self. 
          There is a Higher Way that you have chosen, and you are walking toward that way and that which serves the way will be manifest in you and through you according to the Will of The Father.”
 
Q.       That won’t mean that everybody I have contact with will always act and react in perfect harmony with me, will it?
 
          “The Perfect Harmony is with the Spirit.  Those of the world, those in the world, those in human form always are in the process of finding that balance and that harmony within self.  So there will be difficulties in understandings and in relationships, as there are difficulties within each individual finding their path to the Freedom of the Spirit within them.  For there are the deceptions, there are the aspects of this world that have colored their consciousness.  
          They who seek to know the Truth will find the Truth, but those areas of consciousness will be rooted out through the Truth, and those of the earth oftentimes rebel against the Truth.
          The Harmony you seek is that Complete Peace that is within you from Above.”
 
Q.       Would You please expand on the statement You gave that “all relationship is in our own consciousness”?
 
          “Those patterns of the world and of self that have been brought forth through this life on the earth, through those activities, those perceptions, those understandings.  In this, all relationship resides, for it is as a filter through which you see, but through that filter, so the clarity and the understanding and the purpose of all things is not readily discerned.
          For it is through that Life that you Truly are that you become aware of that greater Purpose, that greater Will of The Father, that you are transformed into that Creature that is the Newness of His Word.  The patterns of self, the patterns of this earth are released.
          As you are in relationship with another, they do not know you and you do not know them, for it is all colored by that pattern, that life which is transposed over the Truth of your Being.
          Those relationships as you have with your husband, this then is of greater clarity, a greater understanding, a singleness of purpose.  You have merged into One Being in Christ.
          This is a relationship that He wishes to have with you, that He alone is, which takes away all delusions, all the inferiority complexes, all the judgments of self.  This is, indeed, freedom from that life of this world.”

          “Let your hearts be filled with My Joy that the Life that I Am in you shines in Power in this earth, for it is My Life that is the Essence of your being.  It is the Victory over all things of this earth and it is the Power that lifts you into My Kingdom. 
Feel that surrender into My Peace, and know that Life beyond measure living through you and in you.”
 
Q.       When Pamela came back into my life, I had this idea of having this friend in this world to share with and grow with.  However, it just doesn’t seem to be working out that way.
          This idea of friends in this world…  I feel like maybe there is something I need to know about that.
 
          “The concept of this within you is somewhat distorted.  It is the immature consciousness that seeks to have companionship in this earth.  There will be companionship, but it will be moment to moment, not a continual communion with others, in that, there would be a gathering together for purposes that are not of the Spiritual nature.
          It is a deeper relationship in the Spirit that is the goal of these meetings.  There are many friends that you are unaware of that you meet for a moment that that Life is passed to, that that Love is released to.
          It is in capturing these moments that there is the fulfillment of this desire, for the communion is always with the Spirit.  The attachment to the outer, to the physical is as a bondage to the flow of the Spirit.  So you must release all to the Freedom of the Spirit, and when they appear, there is that communion, that release, that flow that takes place.”
 
Q.       So the friendship is with that One Spirit that manifests in all people as they allow it, and it’s more of an intangible friendship through the Spirit at the moment and not a particular physical embodiment.
 
          “This is correct.  In this way, those that are drawn by the Spirit will receive from the Spirit. 
Those that are drawn to the personality, to an idea of a friend, this then becomes limited and detrimental to both parties.”
 
Q.       When You say that there are friends that I am unaware of, was that more the soul level is the friend, not the personality level or…
 
          “Everyone you meet, everyone you see:  storekeepers, people in the Mall, everyone that is brought into your awareness.  These are friends.”
 
 
          “As you build that House upon the Rock, there is the fulfillment of that Perfect Pattern from Above.  As you build the House upon the Rock, you are brought into that Life that is stable, harmonious and undamaged by those forces of the world.
          You have chosen to build upon the Rock.  Keep the mind and the heart and the soul in alignment with this choice, and you will see the Completion of the Word of Life within you.”
 
 
September 2, 2002
 
Q.       I want to especially thank You for what was given to me about this understanding of friendship.  That feels like it’s been such a freeing for me.  I think it will make a big difference for me in relationships.
 
          “It is the Universal Friendship, the Universal Trust, the Unlimited Life that is allowed to flow when there is the release of attachments to the emotional realm of this world.
          This is a great receiving on your part, for the consciousness that finds this, finds Freedom in that Spirit of Truth.”
 
 
John 8:32  "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."

1 Corinthians 6:17  But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

1 Corinthians 12:13  For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body--whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free--and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.

Ephesians 2:18  For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. 

Ephesians 2:22  In whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. 

Ephesians 4:4-6  There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling;  One Lord, one faith one baptism,  One God and Father of all who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Ephesians 1:22,23  “And He put all things in subjection under His Feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the Church, which is His Body, the fullness of Him who fills All in all.” 
 
1 Corinthians 15:28  “And when all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, that God may be All in all.”

Renew The Mind and Receive The Kingdom

            “As you trust in Me and as you surrender all care to Me, the Power of My Spirit is released to do My Will in and through you.
          The pattern of the mind, the pattern of the soul in the renewing of the mind is the pattern of focus…beginning with the completion of My Spirit in you by receiving into your beings, receiving My Life and My Gift.  This is the first step in the renewal process.
          As your spirit and soul are bound together, as your body and soul are bound together, so the mind that is from Above is connected to your beings through your mental activities, through your soul, through your body, through the brain.  These elements are all in play for the renewal of the mind.
          The next step in this renewal process is to obtain understanding of the Words of Life that I have given.  As you focus on these in your beings, as you meditate upon these in your hearts, as you prepare your beings to that understanding of the Truth of My Kingdom that is in you.  This takes repetition.  This takes focus.  This takes discipline to the consciousness, and the complete trust in My Spirit to do the work that is to be done in you.
          As you move forward in this and as you focus upon the Words of Truth and the Words of Life, taking time to write down, to read aloud, to meditate upon those Words which I give you by My Spirit to create those patterns in the body and in the mind that are of Truth to the being, that are of Truth according to My Words.  This breaks the bondage of the deceptions of the past, of those deceptions of the enemy, those deceptions of inadequacy according to your belief, according to the self of you. 
          This begins the renewal and is to be accomplished step-by-step, precept upon precept, line upon line.  Changing the very physical aspects of the way you think, the way you act, the way you perceive.  These things are all brought into alignment with My Kingdom, My Word and My Love.
          The pattern that grows within you is the growth of My Spirit, influencing the very particles of your body, the very atoms, the very life of the blood.  Changing your DNA to match the Kingdom Life from Above.  This opens the doorway.  This allows the free flow of My Spirit in and through your beings making you a Child of the Kingdom, an Heir of Grace and Truth, able to do and be whatever My Spirit leads you to.  Able to walk in the Power of My Presence, surrounded by My angels in this world.
          Through the Power of this Presence, through this Kingdom Life, you are transformed and translated into the Glory that I have prepared for you.  The doorway is the openness of My Spirit to receive you into the Kingdom and project the Kingdom in and through your beings in the earth.
          As you pray, “Thy Kingdom come and Thy Will be done”, so it shall be in you as you follow these steps and trust all to My Care.”
 
Q.       When You referenced the Words that You would give us, would they be like Scripture words out of the Bible or would they be possibly other Words?
 
          “As they are from the Word that is given in the Book, they are the useful words for the understanding and for the focus, for they have been empowered by My Spirit to do My Will.
          Words that correspond to these that come from My Spirit to your consciousness are as effective in the use in this pattern.”

 
          “The Life that I Am, the Life that is the Truth of your Beings breaks forth in Power and in Majesty allowing My Glory to fill your beings, to fill the atmosphere, to reveal My Kingdom in this earth.
          Cast aside every doubt and every fear of self and receive the Fullness of My Life in you.”
 
 
John 10:10  …I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
 
2 Corinthians 3:18  But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
 
Romans 12:2  And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
 
2 Corinthians 5:17  Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
 
2 Corinthians 4:11  For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.
 
2 Corinthians 5:21  For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
 
Luke 12:32  “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
 
Matthew 6:33  “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
 
Matthew 18:4  “Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
 
Luke 17:20  Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation;
21.  “nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”
22.  Then He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it.
23.  “And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them.
24.  “For as the lightning that flashes out of one part under heaven shines to the other part under heaven, so also the Son of Man will be in His day.
 
Matthew 13:43  “Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

As the World Rejects the Truth…

          As the world rejects the Truth, as the world despises My Righteousness, as the world ignores My Holiness, so the Power of My Spirit is released in greater measure into those who seek My Will, to those who trust in Me,
          As the world flows in the paths of deception and receives the Deceiver’s lies, the tribulations of the systems of the world are increased and the confusions of the world are amplified.
          As your hearts seek My Will and trust in My Love, the Glory of My Presence and the Power of My Spirit is brought forth through your beings in greater measure.  As you seek My Will and trust in My Love, the Glory of My Presence is manifest in and through you.
          Come unto Me.  Trust in Me.  Releasing all care to Me and receiving My Peace, My Love and the Glory of My Presence.
 
          As you allow your hearts to be filled with My Joy, the Joy of My Victory and the Power of My Peace, your beings are transformed moment by moment and your minds are free to receive the greater understanding of My Love and My Presence that is always with you.
 
 
Daniel 11:32  “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.
 
Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
 
Nehemiah 1:7  The LORD is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and He knows those who trust in Him.
 
Romans 8:14   For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.
 
I Corinthians 15:57  But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Steps to Completion

Rest always in My Peace,
Releasing all care.
Putting aside all things of the world that strive to intrude,
That attempt to hold you back.
Let your hearts be free in the Joy I give.
And let the Power of My Spirit direct your thoughts, words and deeds.
 
          As you do this, you will find the Fullness and the Completion of your souls, for you will be walking in the paths that I have laid for you from the foundations of the earth.
          And the Joy, the Peace, the Wonder will bring forth much fruit in and through your lives.
          Rejoice and be glad, for I Am with you always.
 

John 14:27   “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
 
1 Peter 5:6,7  …casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
 
Matthew 6:31-33   “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’  “For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
 
John 17:13   “But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.”
 
Romans 8:14   For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.

Be Free in the Power of My Spirit

          “As you release all care to Me, as you surrender all fear and all doubt, as you place your trust completely in My Word and in My Love, you are freed from the bondage, freed from the deceptions of this world.  Your beings glow with the Power of My Spirit.  Your hearts are filled with My Joy and your minds are completely at rest in My Peace.
          Be free in the Power of My Spirit, continually rejoicing in the Victory that I have given.  Let your hearts be full of compassion and forgiveness as the Deceiver uses those of the world, as the Deceiver brings forth lies and confusion upon the people of the earth.
          Have compassion on the tools that he uses, forgiving them and praying for them that they be freed from the deception.  In this, you release yourself from the ties that bind you to the negative aspects of their continual deception.
          As you forgive and release, as you pray and give thanks for the Victory, the Life that I Am in you shines forth in Power and in Love, that there is a Completeness and there is a Oneness and there is a Communion that is so far above the consciousness that you can barely imagine. 
          As you walk with Me, know that I Am ever with you.”
