|The Coming Of Jesus|
“But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1Th 4:13-18)
“For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe. For ye, brethren, became followers of the churches of God which in Judaea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost. But we, brethren, being taken from you for a short time in presence, not in heart, endeavoured the more abundantly to see your face with great desire. Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us. For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? For ye are our glory and joy.” (1Th 2:13-20)
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (Rev 20:7-9)
( Prophecy )
“I would speak unto you my people says your Lord, and give comfort unto your souls. Yeah, I would speak to the years that have passed you by, and the time of tribulation you have endured, the scourging of my love and of my purposes for you. As your Lord, I have required much for you to endure my precious Saints, you who have remained faithful unto Me and who have not forsaken me as your first love. Although many times you have wondered at the strangeness of your testings and the length of time needed for my will to be produced in you, even so, I have accomplished much, and the fruit of my Spirit is bearing forth on the branches of the Living Tree within your very souls. For it is to those who would Overcome that I, the Lord Jesus Christ, would address this Word.
Yeah, I stand in the midst of the seven candlesticks to bring forth from within you a completed purpose. For I am in your midst, the years of your tribulation have brought me to the surface so that my life can be seen, and I am right on time with my purposes in manifesting my Church to this world. Behold, I do indeed come, and my reward is with me to reward each man as his work shall be. Yeah, I am coming, hold fast for my promise to you is sure, I will not tarry. I will cut short this work in righteousness and I do come in Holy myriads of myself in a great cloud of witnesses, and my coming shall manifest you all in bodies of Glory which shall never pass away.
Heed the Word I am sending you in this season, for it is not of man or of man’s mind, but it is of the Mind of the Living Christ through the vessels I have chosen for this specific task. Heed this word and apply it unto your understanding. Cry out to understand and know my purposes in you my people, for I have redeemed you for such a time as this. I am coming to reward you with the right to Rule and to Reign and to triumphantly set this creation free for the even greater purposes of God in the ages yet to come. The time has not yet come for you to lay down your swords and to put off your armor, for indeed, this is the time wherein you need to stand even more strong in the armor my word does provide to you, and to have an even keener discernment by the Sword of my Holy Spirit. This is the time of great delusion and the time of the revelation of the Son of Perdition who imitates the true and the living Christ. Consider carefully the steps your feet are taking my people, for I have not yet released you to cease bearing your personal crosses, nor to denying your lives unto death. For it behooves you to seek me in the righteousness of my life and to separate in each of you flesh from Spirit. This is not the time to become complacent in your walk, but it is the time to earnestly seek my face and to hold fast to that which you has received of me that no man take away your Crown. My work in each of you is not yet completed, nor for those who have passed on before and are abiding in me now in Spirit, for I am continuing to work in them a Holy work as I am for those yet in bodies of flesh and blood. Fix your gaze upon me and bear the weight of your crosses until the work of separating old from new is accomplished and you have fully laid down all that is but death in you to the wielding sword of my Judgments. There is yet a path for you to traverse my people, a place wherein you must learn to stand fast in me. You have not yet completed your courses, but I say unto you that as you hold to my Word and as you faithfully deny yourselves daily and take up your crosses to follow me, I will complete in you that Holy Work you desire of me and will fit you for dominion in the Kingdom of God.
You must learn in this hour to discern between what is of me and what is of the antichrist nature that is in the midst of those who claim oneness with my Name. For I am putting a difference between my Saints and those who claim to belong to me but who compromise with lukewarm doctrines of devils and of carnal men. For my Spirit will not strive with these, but to those who live in abandonment to me I will give the full measure of Grace and they shall indeed Overcome the enemy of their souls. It is my good pleasure to give unto you my Kingdom, but it must come with a price and with obedience unto my perfect will. So listen not to any person who would preach unto you that the cross is a completed work in your lives, for it is yet being unfolded and the division of flesh and Spirit is yet being worked out by my mercy. I will complete this work, and I will finish it by my Spirit alone and none will be able to deny this Army that I bring forth in the perfect image of my Grace when I come to be Glorified in my Saints.
Yeah, I am The Lord.

(Note, underlines in the following scriptures in this writing were done by me.)
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day. Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 1:7-12
This is the manner in which the Lord Jesus Christ will come again.
Note that the Lord comes to be admired in all them that “believe”. There are really only a very few who believe IN TRUTH. Many believe all kinds of things about the Lord, about His coming, but few BELIEVE in Jesus as He truly is. In fact, I will be so bold as to say that only those who are overcoming truly believe in Jesus in the correct way. Belief abounds in this day, but it is belief that is not according to the pure Spirit of Truth that is the Lord Himself, that the Lord Himself has revealed Himself to a very “few”. Even those who are constrained on the narrowest part of the pathway unto life, the “few” who found that path.
In my understanding from the Lord I see that in the life of they who overcome, the coming of the Lord FIRST will be to them, NOT the rest of the world, but the rest of the world will benefit from the Lord’s coming to the Overcomers. In this part of COME UP HITHER the true coming of Christ to catch away His church is what I want to study. For this coming of Christ will be to catch up to the Throne of Glory the manchild, the Overcomers FIRST, to manifest them in Glorified Bodies IN the earth. For this catching up will happen HERE, but also be in the full realm of Spirit in the Kingdom of God at the very same time. This is completely compliant with the descent and settling of The New Jerusalem to the dust of this earth. The New Jerusalem being the Church of the Living Christ. However, the coming of the Lord at the first is to those who form the “church within a church”, the company of those who obeyed the Lord in complying completely with the gospel in bearing their personal crosses right till the time of His appearing or till the time came when their course in faith was finished. I do not believe otherwise. The Lord Jesus Christ is about to come to Glorify those who are His Overcomers. Those who bore the pain of personal self denial.
I also see that there were some elements of the purposes of God working in the lives of they who overcome, for I see that the dual nature of man in their walk with God comes to full growth in them. We have the fallen Adamic nature on one side of our lives, and the new born again nature which cannot sin or die as the other part of our natures. Both of these grow together. In you are two trees, the Tree of Life and the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil. In fact, there are more than just those two trees for there are many plantings of the Lord in each of us. However, these two trees are the trees I identify with the old and new natures in those who desire to obey the Lord and overcome all things.
In the old nature which Christ conquered by His cross, we have working in accompaniment with that nature the “mystery of Iniquity”. Iniquity means “self will”. This is the mystery that was found in Adam when he fell in the Garden of Eden. This mystery is mentioned by the Apostle Paul as one of the mysteries of God. In fact, God created this mystery to accompany the fallen state to make that fallen state totally reprehensible.
“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:” 2Thessalonians 2:7-8
This mystery is the power behind the maladies that effect the world. The pollutions, the corruption, the death and dying of all things. God has ordained that all the mysteries He created BE COMPLETED. Each one has to come to full completion in us so that each part of our lives ends in a flourish of totality which is unique to each one of us. And the mystery of Iniquity, the power of sin in the fallen nature must also be completely fulfilled with that mystery running full course. The old nature must grow up completely in our lives if we are to overcome it. We cannot “mortify” the base elements of our fallen nature if those elements are still hidden in the clay. They must be brought to the surface by the trials of life so we can conquer each element which would oppose the new nature of Christ in us.
The New Nature has two mysteries I see working in it. The mystery of the faith and the fellowship of the mystery. “Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.” 1Timothy 3:9
“Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:”
These two mysteries in unison grow up with the New Nature in us. That part of our lives which is born of God and cannot sin, for it is the nature and life of God in us. BOTH MUST GROW TOGETHER. So those of you who have read my studies before know why I am opposed to the teachings of this hour which say that the old nature is dead and gone and that the cross is over and completed. It is not completed, it must run its course in us until He appear! For the nature which is of the fall and under the curse of death, and the nature which is born of God and is eternally life and light GROW TOGETHER IN YOU.
**** But then THIS HAPPENS WHEN THE LORD COMES! ****
“Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.” Zechariah 14:1-5
When Jesus comes, His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives and will cleave that mount in two. DEAR OVERCOMER – YOU ARE THAT MOUNT!. When He comes, CLEAVED IN TWO WILL BE THE TWO NATURES IN YOU, THE TWO TREES, THE DUALITY WHICH YOU ENDURE. Gone from you will be the old nature and the mystery of Iniquity, for that mystery will have been fulfilled. The full growth of the depravity of the fall will have come to full negative fruit and fruition. The cross will have brought it to a full canceling. And when Jesus comes IT WILL BE REMOVED FROM YOU. For the wicked will be cut off, the dark part of your life, the part you loath will be forever removed from you. Those who have read my studies know that I believe in the reconciliation of all things. But this is the one thing that will NOT be reconciled! This is that perdition that Jesus won’t save! This perdition is destined to be put off of you ETERNALLY. But first it must grow up in you, even though you loath it, it grows, and you continually put it down in your faith by battling it with the impaling of your personal cross. But when Jesus comes, IT WILL BE ETERNALLY REMOVED FROM YOU.
Your nature which is eternal will shine forth from within your soul and you will walk forward in a Glorified Body. This happens WHEN HE COMES. Jesus HAS COME in the past in realms of revelation, understanding and Glory. He IS coming presently in our hope and understanding of spiritual things, BUT HE WILL COME IN HIS PHYSICAL GLORIFIED BODY IN THE TIME IMMEDIATELY IN FRONT OF US. For He will come, and He will remove from us by His descent to us that nature which we hate, the fallen state of death in us that we long to conquer completely. At that time, when He appears, it will be conquered and the gamut of testings you will have endured through your life will come to an end. There will be nothing left in you except the explicit fashion of a son or daughter of God! There will be nothing in you to any longer wait for! All that is in you will be a completed whole! God will move you forth into this fallen world in a GLORIFIED STATE.
There is a literal day approaching of a literal coming of the Lord Jesus Christ unto us. This coming is the day when He will catch us up! In other words, He will move us out of duality and into a singular nature. And we with an open face will behold the Lord in the fullness of the Glory that God gave Jesus when He gave Him a Name which is above every name. He is literally coming in the same Body He ascended in that we read about in the gospels. His coming will be to those who overcame, they alone will see this. His coming will be to Glorify the Overcomers. But listen carefully. This coming will be to bring you into full Spiritual stature so you can walk about in this earth in Glorified bodies amongst the Nations and fallen creation, and by your walking you will END DEATH. For the catching up of the Overcomers happens IN THE AIR. We are caught up to where the realms of principality and power abide to deceive and contradict the motion of God’s Spirit. We are caught up into their realm as FULL VICTORS over them also! For not only are we separated from duality, we also conquer fully the atmosphere in which principality and power, the spirits of wickedness do work, so that they will be subservient TO OUR GLORY. They will be misplaced, by the catching up of the Saints! Their realm of dominion WILL END. With complete triumph in resurrection life the Overcomers will conquer them and destroy the power of deception to deceive in the earth. Mankind will see the real thing! They will see the Sons and Daughters of God in full manifestation in Glorified bodies and when the earth sees this, DEATH WILL END.
“We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the earth; neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen. Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise.Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.” Isaiah 26:18-19
This verse is talking about our resurrection. The coming of Jesus IS THE RESURRECTION FOR THE 1st FRUITS. ***NOTE THIS*** I only want to concentrate on the catching up OF THE OVERCOMERS in these studies! For God has ordained that their Glorification will end death and bring the world INTO THE EARTHLY REIGN OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND ALL THOSE WITH HIM IN THE EARTH. The earth WILL CAST OUT HER DEAD! We are going to be THE FIRST ONES CAST OUT. And I pray that I do not have to set my natural body in a coffin first! If I do, I will simply watch God work out His purposes from the vantage point of being in the Heavens, but what I really want IS TO STAY HERE. I WANT TO COME TO COMPLETION WHILE I AM IN MY MORTAL BODY AND I WANT TO EXPERIENCE MY MORTAL BODY CHANGING TO A GLORIFIED BODY WHILE I WALK THE EARTH. This is my real hope as one who is shut away with the Lord, unseen, unknown, what I want IS FOR HIM TO APPEAR IN ME IN TOTAL GLORY. I feel this glory every day arising in my chest, it is a real thing, not just an emotion, but a real measure of the Spirit of Jesus arising in me, this tells me that this coming IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN!
