Under the Law if a man digs a pit and does not cover it to make it safe, and an ox falls into it and is injured or dies that man must “make it good.” In other words that man is responsible to restore what he caused to happen. He went to sleep that night and every night knowing that he had dug a pit and someone or someone’s property could fall into it…yet he let it happen. He is now obligated by the Law to make it good.

Ex 21:33 “And if a man opens a pit, or if a man digs a pit and does not cover it, and an ox or a donkey falls in it, 34 the owner of the pit shall make it good; he shall give money to their owner, but the dead animal shall be his.

God does not break His own Law. And Paul tells us that the Law is spiritual.(Rom 7:14) Thus we can see the spiritual meaning and application.

God placed his own property into the garden in Eden knowing that the Serpent would be there and that the Serpent would deceive them, knowing that they would fall. In a very real sense God had dug a pit and did nothing to cover it over. God deliberately involved Himself in Mankind’s fall to PUT HIMSELF UNDER OBLIGATION to “make it good” one day..

Of course sending Jesus to die for us was the first part of God making good what He had a part in causing. The final part is when we are all restored to Him and all have put on immortality.

God speaks about this also in Romans 8 when He says…

Romans 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

Please realise or at least consider that the phrase “the creation” is not only speaking of the animal kingdom and the plant kingdom…but includes and primarily speaks about MANKIND!! It is Mankind that has an earnest expectation of deliverance from the futility of an existence without hope. It is mankind that shall be delivered –the whole creation groans–every single human heart is crying out to God to save them–and God is under obligation to do just that–and He is and will do it—for ALL CREATION!! Hallelujah!!


The odd thing is that I wrote this today on my Facebook page– being the 18th August 2018. Okay so what? In the post I used Romans 8:18 and a little later I read somone’s post who told the story of two saints who died for their faith in Flanders 100’s of years ago. One of them stood firm upon that verse.

Rom 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Just a coincidence? I think it is a little prophetic alert. It is nearly time for the sons of God to be made manifest and to set creation free from the bondage of decay. But in that same time many will suffer for their faith who have not previously had to. That is to say that those believers in the west are soon to be tried by the fire.

Stand firm in Christ Jesus and look not to the world to confirm your words, but stand upon my anointing and look fear in the eye and declare those things that He has put in your heart and mouth to say. For God shall not fail you even though it looks like He does. Fear not–fear not – fear not! I am coming to fill my house with glory says the Lord.

These are the days, these are the days, these are days!! Be joyful in what I create for I create Jerusalem in the hearts and lives of my people–rejoice and be glad in it.


 

I get the sense that we are in between two ages–the outward church age and the inward age of Tabernacles. For two thousand years the church in her immaturity has tried very hard to be like Jesus. But that time is coming to end.

I believe that I like many others have been called even as Isaiah was called to see the end of Christianity come to pass.

When Isaiah saw the LORD high and lifted up on His throne God called him to a peculiar work.

Isa 6:8  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. 
Isa 6:9  And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. 
Isa 6:10  Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed

Great calling isn’t it?! That is my calling. Christianity fits right into these verses. They see, they hear and they know.

Isaiah recognised that he was a man taken from among men, he was just the same as everyone else. So God did something in him to make him different than all the rest. A live burning coal touched his lips and purged him. He was now different from his brethren.

His ministry was to keep Israel in the dark about God’s purposes. Isaiah heard this terrible news and cried to the LORD …

Isa 6:11  Then I said, “Lord, how long?”And He answered: “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, The houses are without a man, The land is utterly desolate, 
Isa 6:12  The LORD has removed men far away, And the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land. 
Isa 6:13  But yet a tenth will be in it, And will return and be for consuming, As a terebinth tree or as an oak, Whose stump remains when it is cut down. So the holy seed shall be its stump.” 

Who can understand the mind of God? Who can instruct Him? God is so multifacted and all wise that the greatest chess players who can plan many moves in advance have nothing on Him. We think we know what He is doing and we think we are right…but in the end God is. Let God be true and every man a liar. What is going on?

There is a visible outward form of Christianity that has sufficed for two thousand years. But the inward kingdom has not been seen very often. That is about to change.

The cocoon  which is Christianity with all its outward forms is perishing and the New Man is about to emerge.

The cocoon has served its purpose but is about to be split apart and discarded.

Many many many are in love with the cocoon and have not caught sight of the movement within. But that cocoon called Christianity is about to die. Many shall continue to gather around the cocoon trying to get some sort of life from that dead discarded thing. But the tomb shall be empty and the New Man shall have risen and walked on from that encasement.

Do you know what I am talking about?

This is my calling.

Until the cities–churches are laid waste and without inhabitant.

Christianity shall die and be replaced with a holy Seed.

And from that Seed shall grow up unto the Lord many sons of glory. The outer husk shall be split open and be discarded….Then the true purpose of God shall be revealed.

But not until the old order is dead and empty…..for even now it is dead and empty!

The Lord is removing men far away and the forsaken places are many in the land.

Men are trying to establish churches when all they are doing is establishing dead cocoons and things of the past. Worshiping an outward Jesus who they imagine to be up there somewhere in heaven, Longing for the day that they will see Him come again. A Jesus far away. That is Christianity–a striving to perform for a far away Jesus–a striving to please a far away Jesus. THat is what God is finished with for good.

Tabernacles of God –that is what we are.

Tabernacles of Him

That is who we are.

In My Fathers house are many mansions

I go that I may prepare a place for you.

If I go..I will come again that you may be where I am.

Where is Jesus?

Christianity says He is up there somewhere and will come back someday.

Truth says He never left, but returned to the Father who is SPIRIT…and those who received His Spirit have Jesus 100% in them.

Christianity cried to God to take them to be where Jesus is…but all the time He is in them!! They want to see Jesus…He is in them. They want to know Jesus…He is in them. They want to love God more…He is in them, in their brother and sister and mother.

Jesus says If you have seen Me you have seen the Father.

Christianity says Show us the Father!!

Jesus says back to the church…if you have seen me you have seen the Father….Dont you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me?

Where do you think the Father is dear Christian?

HE IS IN YOU!!!!

There is no trying to do anything for God up there…..you are as He is right now. You are in the heavens and the earth as HE IS.

All outward thinking that separates you from Jesus is passing away.

Many are fighting this saying it is new age teaching…You bet it is!!

NEW AGE!!

NEW MAN!!

JESUS CHRIST MAGNIFIED AND GLORIFIED IN HIS BODY ON THE EARTH.

JESUS CHRIST walking and talking just being himself AS YOU.

 

In 15 years we have been in churches 2 years. The whirlwind of the Lord turned us out towards the wilderness instead. In early January 1998 I was given a very clear dream in which the choice was made clear:- Stay in the church as it is or seek God in the wilderness. It was some 5½ years later that we left the Pentecostal church we had been married in and in a place of leadership.

Many lessons have been learned over the years since then. We have had to learn to stand on our own and to trust God when it seems that all is pear shaped and wrong. I would not change the past for anything.

A day ago while contemplating going to “church” again the Lord very clearly said not to go. Also he explained that when the darkness has reached it’s peak then you will return for then they will be ready to hear what is in your heart. Until then they cannot hear nor do they want to hear.

This is a rerun of Jesus lamenting over Jerusalem in His refrain…Jerusalem O Jerusalem.

Mat 23:37  “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 
Mat 23:38  See! Your house is left to you desolate; 
Mat 23:39  for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘BLESSED is HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!’ “ 

What business does a prophet have in going to Jerusalem to fit in with them? None. If I were to go it would not be long before I spoke contrary to what they are all believing for. I would have to leave again.

So outside the camp I remain…and not just I, but my wife and children.

When Isaiah saw the LORD in His Temple in ch.6 he was given the calling and mandate of all true prophets.

Isa 6:8  Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” 
Isa 6:9  And He said, “Go, and tell this people: ‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; Keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’
Isa 6:10  “Make the heart of this people dull, And their ears heavy, And shut their eyes; Lest they see with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And return and be healed.” 

This is what happened to Judah and Israel. But sad to say it has also happened to the church. The church have also refused to hear the word of the Lord and have been blinded. They prefer to believe lies and darkness. I was just the same of course. But in 2010 the Lord dealt with me and spoke clearly to me out of the story of Jesus healing the blind man in Mark 8. As a result of that we left our Bethsaida and have not returned.

Mar 8:22  Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him. 
Mar 8:23  So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. 
Mar 8:24  And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.” 
Mar 8:25  Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly. 
Mar 8:26  Then He sent him away to his house, saying, “Neither go into the town, nor tell anyone in the town. 

This story which came alive to us in 2010 and the dream in 1998 have ruled our lives to this day. The town is the church…we have not returned nor have we been able to speak to anyone. They do not hear, nor do they see. This is scary but is all the work of the Father.

Isaiah asked the LORD how long must he blind people? The answer was…

Isa 6:11  Then I said, “Lord, how long?” And He answered: “Until the cities are laid waste and without inhabitant, The houses are without a man, The land is utterly desolate
Isa 6:12  The LORD has removed men far away, And the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land

This is what is going to happen to the Christian church as it is now. God has new wine and the old wine skins cannot contain it. The old order will die off. Churchianity must die and will be desolate JUST AS JESUS said to Jerusalem in Matthew 23…

Mat 23:38  See! Your house is left to you desolate; 
Mat 23:39  for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘BLESSED is HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!’ ” 

As Jerusalem goes so will the “church.” Natural Jerusalem is not our Mother and never will be. Natural Jerusalem is in bondage with her children and can only produce bondage. Her children are contrary to all men.

1Th 2:14b…..the Judeans, 
1Th 2:15        who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men

The children of natural J/Lem are contrary to all men…this is the nature prophesied of Ishmael.

Gen 16:12  He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, And every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.” 

This connection between the children of Jerusalem and Ishmael is made by Paul the anointed Apostle of Jesus Christ. The Church also seems to think it’s mission is to be contrary to all men…and she also vehemently supports the Zionist State aligning herself with natural Jerusalem in it’s murderous rule over those who live alongside her. Thus the church and Jerusalem shall become a stench in the nostrils of all men if not already. These brothers and sisters of mine also think Jesus is in support of all this as well.

Their collective houses shall be left to them desolate and empty and forsaken…..ONLY then shall they begin to be ready to hear the Lord’s word.

Behold! Blessed is He that comes in the name of the Lord.

Thanks to the remnants of tropical cyclone Marcus we had a full day of rain yesterday- 26th March. Back on the 13th February a farmer had randomly told me that the Easter Lillies had sprung up from the ground meaning that it would rain in about 6 weeks time. We have not had a drop of rain until yesterday…and it took a wandering cyclone which tracked all the way from Northern Queensland , through Darwin and down the coast of Western Australia to bring it.

I wrote back on the 13th Feb:

These lilies are also a sign of coming rain–or so I was told today. A farmer told me the rains will begin in around 6 weeks…..27th March.

Good Friday is the 30th March…so we shall wait with expectation for the rains of the Holy Spirit to begin falling in a fresh and powerful way!

Come Holy Spirit, Come…fall upon this dry land of Australia! Fall upon the thirsty hearts and bring repentance and faith in Jesus the Christ. Come sweet Spirit and cleanse this land –raise up the Lord Jesus on High over Australia. Let a mighty revival begin…let it begin in me O Lord! Save your people–save your people with your mighty arm.

The Cyclone formed in the Timor sea on the 14th March as a Low pressure system then hit Darwin as a Category 2 cyclone on Saturday 17th March. Then tracked WSW out into the Indian Ocean before travelling 3000km down the coast towards Perth where it turned back into a low pressure system. It got to level 5 as a Cyclone out at sea.

Marcus means Hammer.

Jer 50:23  How the hammer of the whole earth has been cut apart and broken! How Babylon has become a desolation among the nations! I have laid a snare for you; 

Jer 50:24  You have indeed been trapped, O Babylon, And you were not aware; You have been found and also caught, Because you have contended against the LORD.
Jer 50:25  The LORD has opened His armory, And has brought out the weapons of His indignation; For this is the work of the Lord GOD of hosts In the land of the Chaldeans.
Jer 50:26  Come against her from the farthest border; Open her storehouses; Cast her up as heaps of ruins, And destroy her utterly; Let nothing of her be left.
Jer 50:27  Slay all her bulls, Let them go down to the slaughter. Woe to them! For their day has come, the time of their punishment. 

God says He has laid a snare for Babylon because she has been proud against the LORD (Jer 50:29) The Babylonian Empire which is headed by the USA and it’s allies in nearly every country are falling into God’s snare. The outcome shall see the Babylonian Buffaloes humbled and put down. The time of their rule has finished! The Kingdom of the Saints of the Most High God has come.

The very pride of believing that God is on their side in all that they do shall be their undoing. The hammer of all the earth. Yes yes…ho hum…so America is mighty …big deal! They have been allowed to become mighty so as to be God’s enforcer of prophetic judgements on different nations etc…but that time is come to an end.

Marcus means Mars – god of war,  as well as Hammer. Which to me means a BULLY!

It is time for the Bully to be snared and trapped and put in it’s place. How that plays out is anyone’s guess. One thing is certain though…the MEEK shall inherit the earth and delight themselves in the abundance of peace. Ps 37. Bullies do not inherit the earth. Those who are always trying to dominate others shall find themselves being humiliated. Those who always spout off about being the First, the greatest…shall be the put down lower and be the least…just ask Cassius Clay.

Every world champion should know when to retire…but unfortunately pride goads them on to fight another war. But this next war will see them shamed and humbled for God shall stand up against them and knock the weapons from their hands.

Slay the bulls–bullies.

This does not have to end in bloodshed…but bullies can be saved and war averted.

I wonder how many Christians realise that some kinds of prayers for other people cause headaches and fever and other symptoms of sickness? Many times in my short Christian experience I have come under attack not from demons but from well meaning brethren.
Whenever we pray that God would make someone else do this or do that…that is witchcraft. The true God does not force anyone to do anything.
When we pray at other people instead of to God for them this is also dangerous. There are those who will hold a person in their minds eye and pray at that person, releasing what they imagine to be the Holy Spirit…or the anointing.  Show me where that is in Scripture. These are binding prayers which release energy at the person…soulish energy.

Prayer – from “The Latent power of the soul” Watchman Nee – 1928

The prayers in the Bible are intelligent and not silly. When the Lord Jesus teaches us to pray, His first words are: “Our Father who art in heaven”. He teaches us to pray to our Father in heaven, but we Christians often pray to the God in our room. Our prayer should be offered to the heavenly Father for Him to hear. God wants us to send
our prayers to heaven by faith, regardless if our feeling be good or bad, or even if there be no feeling. If you pray to, and expect to be heard by, the God in your room, I am afraid you will receive many strange feelings and miraculous experiences and visions from the God in your room. These are given to you by Satan, and whatever you receive from Satan belongs either to consciousness or sub-consciousness.
Someone may not pray to the God in his room. He may direct his prayers instead towards the person for whom he prays. This too is most dangerous. Suppose you have a friend who is over two thousand miles away from you. You pray for him, asking God, as the case might be, to either revive him in the Word or to save him.
Instead of directing your prayer towards God, you concentrate on your thought, your expectation, and your wish and send them out to your friend as a force. Your prayer is like a bow which shoots your thought, desire and wish as arrows towards your friend. He will be so oppressed by this force that he will do exactly what you have asked for. You may think your prayer is answered. But let me tell you, it is not God who answers your prayer, for you have not prayed to Him. It is merely an answer to a prayer which you directed towards your friend.
Someone claims his prayer is answered because, says he, “I have piled prayers on my friend.” Indeed, for you prayed towards him, not towards God. Your prayer is answered, but not by God.
Even though you do not know hypnosis, what you have secretly done has fulfilled
the law of hypnotism. You have released your psychic force to perform this act.
Why is this so? Because you have not prayed to the God in heaven; instead your prayers are projected towards, piled upon, and laid seige to, the person for whom you pray. In appearance you are praying, but in actuality you are oppressing that person with your
psychic power.
If you use your soul force in praying for a certain one—say you pray that he should be at least disciplined if not punished—the prayer of your soul force will dart out at him and he will accordingly be sick. This is a fixed principle of the soul. It is as sure as the fact that a person will be scorched if he thrusts his finger into fire.
For this reason, we should not pray a prayer that asks that a person be punished if he does not do what is expected of him. Such prayer will cause him to suffer, and thus make the one who prayed such a prayer the instigator of his woe. If we pray, we should pray to God and not towards man.

Watchman Nee tells of the time Christians “prayed” for him

I personally have experienced the ill-effect of such prayer. Several years ago I was sick for over a year. This was due to the prayers of five or six persons being piled upon me. The more they prayed, the weaker I became. Finally I discovered the cause. I began to resist such prayers, asking God to disengage me from what they had prayed for. And so I got well. In this connection, let me quote from a letter written by a believer:
*I have just come through a terrible onslaught of the enemy. Hemorrhage, heart affection, panting and exhaustion. My whole body is in a state of collapse. It suddenly burst upon me while at prayer to pray against all psychic power exercised upon me by(psychic) ‘prayer’. By faith in the power of the Blood of Christ, I cut myself off from it, and the result was remarkable. Instantly my breathing became normal, the hemorrhage stopped, exhaustion vanished, all pain fled, and life came back into my body. I have been refreshed and invigorated ever since. God let me know in confirmation of this deliverance, that my condition was the effect of a group of deceived souls, who are in opposition to me, ‘praying’ about me! God had used me to the deliverance of two of them, but the rest are in an awful pit ….

My experience

I have learned that headaches and temperatures are not always natural. I can discern when well meaning brethren pray for me. I feel it on the top of my head like someone trying to drill a hole through my skull. My young daughter who is sensitive always gets a headache and a fever and prickly skin when this is occurring.
As I begin to cut us free from the psychic/soulish prayers aimed against us all of us sense a release and relief come.
I know without a doubt when this is occurring. Sometimes I know where it is coming from usually I don’t. But simply by cutting us free from the psychic prayers we get relief.
When I went to India to preach –afterwards we encountered a lot of these attacks. The man who hosted me was praying at us with his soul. He was also getting all the orphans in his care to pray that I would give them money.
We would come under attack every pay day! Then at night he would phone me and tell me his needs and tell me, “We are all praying for you brother Dennis.”
My reply was, “Yes brother I have felt it all day!”
The funny thing is that before I went on that trip I was given a vision whilst in worship.
I saw a huge black spider bouncing towards me and my family.
I took it as a warning but had no clear discernment about it.
Only afterwards did it become apparent that the Spider(represented a web of lies and of getting stuck in a predator’s web, entangled with him unable to get away as he slowly sucks all the life out of us.
Last night, 24 hours ago I went to go out our front door to take the garbage outside and there on the porch right in front of the door was a large black spider! (Pic at the top)Now today we have been attacked all day since about 10am WST.
God is good who gives us light in the battle that we may face for speaking truth in His name.
