The Mystery of Iniquity – Ahab and Jezebel
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin so that grace may abound? Let it not be! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? Do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father; even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been joined together in the likeness of His death, we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection; knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be destroyed, that from now on we should not serve sin. For he who died has been justified from sin. But if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that when Christ was raised from the dead, He dies no more; death no longer has dominion over Him. For in that He died, He died to sin once; but in that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise count yourselves also to be truly dead to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. Do not yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but yield yourselves to God, as one alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under Law, but under grace. Romans 6:1-14
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. [Seeing] then [that] all these things shall be dissolved, what manner [of persons] ought ye to be in [all] holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 2 Peter 3:7-13
So Omri slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria: and Ahab his son reigned in his stead.And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years.And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him. 1 Kings 16:28-33,
And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.And Ahab called Obadiah, which was the governor of his house. (Now Obadiah feared the LORD greatly:For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)And Ahab said unto Obadiah, Go into the land, unto all fountains of water, and unto all brooks: peradventure we may find grass to save the horses and mules alive, that we lose not all the beasts.So they divided the land between them to pass throughout it: Ahab went one way by himself, and Obadiah went another way by himself.And as Obadiah was in the way, behold, Elijah met him: and he knew him, and fell on his face, and said, Art thou that my lord Elijah?And he answered him, I am: go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.And he said, What have I sinned, that thou wouldest deliver thy servant into the hand of Ahab, to slay me?As the LORD thy God liveth, there is no nation or kingdom, whither my lord hath not sent to seek thee: and when they said, He is not there; he took an oath of the kingdom and nation, that they found thee not.And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here.And it shall come to pass, as soon as I am gone from thee, that the Spirit of the LORD shall carry thee whither I know not; and so when I come and tell Ahab, and he cannot find thee, he shall slay me: but I thy servant fear the LORD from my youth.Was it not told my lord what I did when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD, how I hid an hundred men of the LORD’S prophets by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water?And now thou sayest, Go, tell thy lord, Behold, Elijah is here: and he shall slay me.And Elijah said, As the LORD of hosts liveth, before whom I stand, I will surely shew myself unto him to day.So Obadiah went to meet Ahab, and told him: and Ahab went to meet Elijah.And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.
1 Kings 18:1-18,
And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.And I will give him the morning star.He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Revelation 2:18-29,

Elijah confronts Ahab and Jezebel after the murder of Naboth in the city of Jezreel
Jezebel killed by Jehu’s servants throwing her out a window.
“In current time there was an explosion of the spirit of Ahab and Jezebel in the world of men. The spirits of these two were in a continuance in opposition and in contradiction to the Lord and to His purpose in restitution of all creation and of the exultation and honor that belongs to Christ alone. The spirits of Jezebel and Ahab were demonic forces which arrayed themselves against the holy purpose of God. As they were arrayed, the high mystery of iniquity worked in the lives of those who were easily distracted from the things of the Lord by the things of this present world and thus many were deluded by these strong spirits. Ahab’s spirit manifested itself in vain oppositions of science and in the governing bodies of nations in a vile contempt against people who lived in these nations. Jezebel’s spirit manifested in an explosion of base morals and high idolatry which would turn hearts completely away from the standard of righteousness which the Lord had made by His word. This turning away of hearts was accompanied by the comforting thought that what people did in aligning themselves with vile traits was in fact a righteous act. It gave a false sense of peace and safety to mankind as though they were now right with the Lord by following these vile ambitions of the spirits of Ahab and Jezebel. Only they that overcame by the blood of Christ and by donning the armour of the spirit were able to discern the Ahab and Jezebel spirit in the world of men. All others were overcome by it and thus fulfilled the full scope and power of the Mystery of Iniquity which the Lord has ordained to be filled up even in these last days.”
“At this point the Lord caught my vision back to the time when Jehu’s servants cast Jezebel out of the window to her death. I saw as she fell that the spirits within her formed a conglomerate mass of demonic entities which arrayed themselves against the purpose of the Lord in granting unto His people their full inheritance. That inheritance was the land flowing with milk and honey, the land of Canaan, the promise of a life owned and maintained by the people of the Lord in the midst of all the nations on earth. The spirits in Jezebel were in this array in an intelligent manner and in such a way as to turn the hearts of the Lord’s people away unto this vanity of the worship of Balaam. For it was the children of Israel that she deluded into the worship of Baal in contradiction to the Lord who had redeemed them. In our time, it is a turning away unto the vain jangling of distorted doctrine and of all that which would give place to a life of escape rather than a life which would identify itself fully with Christ and in the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death that His life might also be manifest in our mortal bodies. As Jezebel’s body died, the spirits did not, they departed her physical body at her death but then they continued on in the world without so much as a brief interlude, their machinations against the Lord continued unabated and they went forth all this time through history right up unto our present day with the purpose of throwing the faithful off of their course in obedience to Christ’s commandments and in seeing Him complete the building of His church. That is how vile these entities have become. I saw Overcomers come away from this influence by willing obedience to the things of the Lord including the personal cross.”
“Ahab was standing at a wooden table in his council room with many papers and documents upon it. He was writing down commands and orders which would convey the wishes of his authority dominated by Jezebel his wife and controlled by these spirits of delusion which caused Baal to be worshipped. The governance of his people was based on a false unity that came of the ambition to serve falsehood rather than truth and dishonor in exchange for the dignity that comes by being people whose God is the Lord. I saw Ahab writing with a pen upon these papers, then as time progressed the pen was exchanged for a computer mouse, an electronic device which dictated the course of human events. Literally in time I saw Ahab progress from the antiquated means of writing to the electronic means of writing we have in our day. This means of writing was based on controlling the lives of men and to make them follow pernicious ways rather than holding to the steadfast traditions of the early church fathers who gave us the proper word of God to walk in without discord in the world of they that believe in Christ. This that I saw in Ahab was a distinct departure from righteousness and a filling up of that which bases itself in evil works in this present world. As strange as this vision sounded, that is what I saw, the pen change to the mouse of a computer.”
(4th Vision from Chapter 21, The Wrath Of The Lamb, The Mystery of Christ.
“I saw Jezebel in the bed of fornication. She lay there in the state of absolute apostasy and she delivered many children. I saw the Lord Jesus Christ standing in the Holiest place. He was clothed down to the foot and girded with a golden girdle, His hairs were white like wool and His eyes as a flame of fire. I saw a sword come forth out of His mouth and He killed Jezebel’s children, slaying them all with the sword of His mouth and not one of her children born of idolatry and fornication survived. The children were killed even upon their mother’s bed and not one of them escaped the sword that came forth out of the mouth of the living Christ.”

(5th Vision from Chapter 76, The Cross Of Separation, Mystery Babylon the Great; The Mystery Of the Great Whore. http://overcomers.ca/Epistle_Mysteries/MBTG_001_The_Cross_Of_Separation.htm)
I saw seated at a wooden table that great whore Jezebel who hated the people of the Lord. She sat at this table very fat with great heaps of bones stacked up in piles on the one side of the table to her left while on the other side of the table to her right were cut up pieces of the bodies of the Saints, those whom Jezebel had persecuted and taken and killed and who were now flesh upon which she feasted. These limbs and torsos of the bodies of the killed were her meat and her delight. As she chewed off the flesh from the bones she would stack up the bones as though they were a great prize. She sat at this table with the walls of Babylon behind her. Servants would come to her bringing her more limbs and torsos of the dead which she would ingest quickly getting fatter on them all the while. The servants were in great fear of the great whore Jezebel and when they would come to give her more food they feared for their lives because they were in danger of her wrath and in some cases if a mistake was made or if the dead were not delivered to her fast enough then some of the servants were killed by her and ingested by her along with the bodies of the dead Saints. I saw that the dead bodies she was ingesting were Overcomers who had not finished their course in faith, they were called, but they had not fully obeyed the Lord and therefore the Lord did not choose them. All of the Overcomers who had fully obeyed the Lord and were therefore chosen by Him were hidden away from the wrath of Jezebel and were in caves and in holes in the earth hiding away from her servants and her wrath against the true people of God. These obedient ones waited for the Lord to judge this whore. The servants of Jezebel would go forth into the world of men to try to find the obedient Overcomers to kill and to feed to Jezebel but the Lord had hidden them so that they could not be found.” For many are called, but few are chosen. Matthew 22:14
(End Chapter 76 Vision)
“Then saw I a flow of beautiful oil, the kind of oil that would be used to anoint and to heal, flood the entire world of men. The oil flowed and coursed down through the courses of the earth, down into the layers of sediment, it flowed wherever the earth once stood before its elements had melted with a fervent heat and before it had been consumed by unquenchable fire. Everywhere that the fire had once gone to consume and to melt all the elements, even to there did the oil now go. A healing balm from the Lord, an endless supply. Coursing down through the areas where the fire once consumed creating new the earth, the animal kingdom, and mankind. All that lived in this world and that was cursed under it now became fruitful again and gave this world a new creation, one that had not been before, a new life of the Lord animating it causing it to live and to breathe and to be as it needs to be for that age that does dawn, even that age where the Kingdom of God will fill the earth and all things will be made new. So great was the healing of this oil that all the former things destroyed in the great heat was forgotten and all the sorrow that mankind had found himself in was a grief no more.”
Understanding The Mystery of Iniquity has to become relevant in your ever present faith as a purpose that the Lord must fulfill. Just as the Lord has ordained that all 18 mysteries must be brought to the full, even the mystery of God in such a manner as to exemplify the handiwork of the creator in such a magnificent fashion as to bring His glory and character to not just the realms above where the Heavens behold Him and the Angels sing in worship, but also to bring to the full this same power and glory of the creator to even this natural earthly creation, the creation in the firmament below and above and throughout the cosmos itself. Such an ordination from the Lord can only be brought about by His spirit and not by some motion of His might or of some power greater in magnitude than God’s own creative nature. The fulfillment of the mysteries must come because of WHO THE LORD IS. He is all that we see in these mysteries combined in the ever present creation which came forth from the breath of His mouth. “Let there be”, was the breath of His command and out of nothing substance was created.
Even so one of the more hard mysteries, the Mystery of Iniquity, is also part of His very nature. The Lord said unto Isaiah, “I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things. Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.” Isaiah 45:5-8. Be assured that The Mystery of Iniquity must not only be brought to the full and completed, but it has arrived! This mystery has now in it all that darkness needs to be dark and all that the carnal mind in the present world of man needs to embellish itself in every rendering of wicked desire that man can devise. Although much of the world lays in an impoverished state, the mind of carnal wickedness which is the root and base for this mystery to be produced has come now to full measure with no more to be added to it. There is not going to be any further depth of darkness created in the world of man any more. Even though the distress of nations may rise, know from this word of prophecy that the darkness is now fully dark and the depth of that darkness cannot go any further than it already has. “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.” Isaiah 60:1-5,
So then this mystery in its magnitude has within it the fully matured seed elements of prior existence in a world that was sown during the fall of Adam and nurtured in the life of Jezebel and Ahab who went whoring after the false god Baal. This magnitude of darkness we are now engaged in during this time in the world of men comes first by the Edenic eviction due to the fall of disobedience, but also later in the nation of Israel which had gone whoring after false gods and Baal through unclean marriages and mixed assemblies which were contrary to the command and the law of God. Yet Jesus later comes on the scene and says “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew 5:18. Even so this law once broken by such apostasy of a nation called and ordained failed to be left unfulfilled but was filled to the full by the atonement Christ made to bring it to fruition. So then at this time we still not only have this mystery enveloped in the fall of Adam, but also in the governance of it by two main spirits of this hour, the spirit of Jezebel and the spirit of Ahab. Jezebel represents the demonic powers which would cause man to lose faith and fall into religious ambitions and programs and to make a name for themselves rather than the name of God. A sort of modern day Baal which exults men in pulpits and programs and schemes all which are there to denote needed salvation of men by an angry God. The truth taken by the spirit of Jezebel in this modern world causes the souls of men to attempt to climb up into heaven by some other means and not by the door of Christ who fulfilled all that the law did once require. Ahab takes these measures out to the world at large and causes the nations and the governments and the infrastructure of our modern world to fall into a category that is self sufficient and not God sufficient. Man through political posturing and self governance maintains no need of the Kingdom of God when their own kingdoms suffice. These two elements work in this very hour to create the gross darkness mankind is now enveloped in. Add to this the power of the false monetary system and trading of good and you have man completely separate from God and holding his own ability to make a name for themselves with no help at all from any divine providence.
The Mystery of Iniquity is a passed on generational working of spirit that the Lord ordained should come to the full in our generation. Father passes on to child not only the iniquity inherit in themselves, but amplified in the child’s birth by their own created temperament in resistance to anything that would nullify their own rights as individuals to exist on their own accord and under their own power. Rather than to trust the Lord to bring them through their lives they live according to the rules set out in this modern world by realms of technology and finance and self exalted waves of personal power and personal gratification. So then the child born and grown has within it The Mystery of Iniquity (self will) with ancestral concentrations as well as their own rebellions all brought to bear upon a heart that deludes itself with the ability to exist without any help from the Lord at all.
The spirit of Jezebel combined with the spirit of Ahab gives birth to many offspring all of which are designed in the dark elements of carnality to drag the soul downwards unto the confinements of religious effort and worldly self sufficiency. That is the whole gamut of their work, to make one fall away from God and to make a name for themselves. By wisdom of invention and the power of math and physics a world has been created which is far from God and far from His Throne yet full of self gratification. Enter into this the heart of the Overcomer. The lowly Overcomer emerges out of this world scene breaking off of themselves the bondages that would cover them from the cords of religious effort in Jezebel and in her children which are found in all denominational systems. High regard is paid to clergy of the cloth who lord it over the sheep, but few there are who find a true pastor who will feed them from God’s own heart, a pastor such as that is near impossible to find. So to a true prophet, teacher, apostle or evangelist are impossible to find except for a very few in the world of men. Then when the Overcomer find that these cords that would bind them to Jezebel are broken when they come away separate unto the Lord, Ahab steps in to bind them yet again back unto the elements of man’s governance and control. The spirit of control in this day is beyond scope of even measuring how man has made a name for himself just as the bricks of the tower of Babel were mashed together with slime from the pits of Shinar. Shinar means “the watch of him that sleeps.” What better description of this hour! For the soldier who is to watch the gates and the wall is fast asleep because of the rich full increase of goods and because Ahab’s spirit has given him a self sufficient self governing body of life which cannot fail! Engineering marvels, manmade systems, walls that are broken down by political measures of peace which convey nation to nation as though no strife would exist because the whole purpose of the spirit of Ahab is to reduce the fall of Adam and the subsequent curse to nothing! Man by political and monarchial means has removed God’s curse so they think and have made peace themselves without God’s input! Such is the day we are in! Such is the world that the lowly Overcomer must overcome!
The very first thing the Overcomer learns in earnest having come apart unto the Lord to be cleansed and to bring their will into alignment with God’s perfect will is that there is a war on. This war is very real, it is in the spirit and its ground and field of operations where the battle grounds are filled with blood up to the horse’s bridle is in the carnal mind. The Overcomer in the midst of a world filled with the spirit of Jezebel and of Ahab finds themselves first bringing their lives back into the orbit of God where God rules in every situation of their lives. They forsake all that is in the world of men to be one with the Father. So the very first thing they find is that they must don the armour provided to them through the sixth chapter of Ephesians. This armor is used not so much on an external basis although it is should demonic activity come in subtlety to lead them to delusion, but more in the actual ground and field of battle, the carnal mind that they still carry within their own thinking minds. This battle then become a battle for success or for failure. It tests their mettle to see if they are indeed part of the company of they that would Overcome and the true measure of peace and safety for the Overcomer during the battle in carnality is the all consuming power of the cross. You cannot overcome without the cross working exactly along side of you. It is in this battle ground of the carnal mind that the spirits of Jezebel and Ahab or if you will, all principality and power in the “air”, finds its foothold. The lowly Overcomer then finds their battle is more internal than external and more complex than just thinking, it becomes a matter of faith mixed with works.
So then with the armour fully engaged and the battle fully on and the sword fully extended the Overcomer who stands for the most part in areas of deep loneliness battles an array of darkness that envelops much more than their own sphere of thought and carnality, but has the whole of the world enveloped in such a gross state that is magnified by the thick darkness of this hour. This immense world sized envelope of darkness is what the Overcomer takes on in battle. As such the battle becomes severest when determination is made to quell all the assaults against their faith by pure obedience to God. Their armour then enters into the picture as impervious to all demonic attack through the forces of Jezebel and Ahab who have taken the rest of Christendom into a land of lull and tarnish and false hopes and failed joys. Christendom relishes in their doctrines of escapism and of their ability because of who they think they are in God to look for a way out of this darkness by another means. So then they too wear armour provided in Ephesians 6. Indeed, Christendom wears the same! But they do not use it as does the Overcomer. The Overcomer uses it to brandish the sword in the land of the carnal mind where the enemies arrayed against them would find foothold. But Christendom does not war there, they war against anything and everything which would confront their escapism doctrines. Any doctrine of their escape must be true they think! They are after all God’s special prospered people and all they think and do is blessed by God no matter what and so they abide in this fake light as though it were light when in fact they are grossly overcome with a darkness that in world history has never been so dark! They use then their armour to assault and attack and defend itself from any motion of spirit from God which would confront their escapism lukewarm mentality which would, if fully exposed, find them also to become Overcomers. So then God comes to Christendom with the purpose of removing that bad escape mentality from them and God finds that entrenched in their minds and hearts is Jezebel and Ahab which gives them the power they need to call right wrong, light dark, dark light, good evil and evil good. They end up warring AGAINST GOD WHO WOULD DELIVER THEM. So their armour is used for negatives, not positives. For dark things, not light things. They use the armour twisted by the conjuring of Jezebel and self sufficient by the compromise of Ahab to war against the spirit of truth which would prick their conscience.
So then, Christendom finds itself warring against the Lord in the middle of a dark day in a dark sky with no light and no element of truth which would begin to emanate any sort of true or real light. They war against the Lord because their pet doctrines of escapism from this hour are being touched by His mighty convictions and moved aside by the power of His drawing. As such, Christendom has declared this spirit of God that comes to them to take from them their escape an antichrist Spirit and Christendom has declared that this antichrist spirit has its root and power in Satan. This means dear reader that Christendom has blasphemed the Holy Spirit and has relegated themselves in the next age to the little red schoolhouse of learning which they will not be able to emerge from until they have fully learned the first principles of the doctrine of Christ. What is the doctrine of Christ? LIFE ETERNAL. Not life escapism. Jesus said a very interesting thing in the gospels, one thing which is part of the most interesting part of the scriptures. He said, “He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.” John 12:44-50. His commandment was and is still ONLY life everlasting! This will work and work and work until all creation has come into full restitution including they that have blasphemed the Holy Spirit!
The final defeat of Jezebel and Ahab will only come when two things are in place. First of all, the Overcomers will be in full armour reigning over their carnal minds which cannot bring any rule or right to God. They will have learned to not use or listen to their own carnality. And second, Christ must come again bringing the Kingdom with Him. These two factors will end the working of Jezebel and Ahab casting them with Satan into a pit with no bottom, no more place to stand. The world will suffer great loss in only one area, their own carnal thought. Yes the systems of man will be destroyed, yes the nations will rage together against Christ and against His anointed, but that will not be the worst of it. The worst of it for them will be the loss of ability to use their own minds to reason their own way. The coming of Christ and the victory of the Overcomer over the carnal thought will spell the end of this present world system.
If you are called as an Overcomer, here is the exact place you should be in right now in this very hour, this is where you should be found. You should be found separated, apart, aside from all others and all places and alone unto the Lord allowing His fire to burn the chaff in your life and allowing His arm and mind to teach you how to disregard your carnal thinking mind. The carnal mind is the mind that thinks in this fallen world. As an Overcomer that mind is not removed from you, but you remove yourself from it. You learn by wearing your armour to not regard it, to not listen to its thoughts, to not hear it rant and rave over how good and right it is and to not give its ground the enemy forces which would contaminate you and bring you to strong delusion. This carnal mind is the very mind which could not discern Jesus in the midst of Israel but could do all the religious activities that were prominent to self righteous workers of the law yet who could not know the author of the law. This carnal mind has no concept of grace nor can it understand how grace can freely give them victory in this world even though the world lays in the darkness of the hour waiting for the manifestation of the Sons and Daughters of God. An Overcomer thrusts their Jezebel out of the window of understanding so that the dogs can eat her and they do not do anything that would soil or contaminate Elijah and the mantle he wore. They stand as exemplary of the pattern of the Lord against carnal ambition, yet they do so when no one else even notices them. The Overcomer stands against a wind storm of blasting proportions which would assail their bark to attempt to make them fall. Even so it is from there that the Overcomer learns how to not use their minds at all but to use the mind of Christ, something the world at this time cannot discern.
The Apostle Paul wrote: “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.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. It is not a question of escapism as does much of the carnal mentality of Christendom dictate, but rather a remaining IN that counts in this verse. Remaining IN the world of man, WITH a carnal mind that one does not operate in. A carnal mind that is ignored. We await the coming of Christ which will catch us up into the “air”. This air is none other than the full resurrection victory of the risen Jesus. In my doctrine, the coming of Christ is first for they who are firstfruits of the resurrection order. They that have followed Christ into full redemption and full obedience and who have faithfully borne their armour and have laid down all rule and all authority and all power in their own lives before the feet of the Lord. These who will rule and reign with Him. These are the ones when Christ comes again who will be caught up into the air. They will have Christ’s victory over all principality and power and all the spirits of wickedness in high places which were concentrate upon Jezebel and Ahab. These who are caught up in the air are caught up in nothing less than full victory of Christ over all the power of the enemy. The true element of this is not a catching up into the sky, but rather a change of body, a change of fashion, a clothing again by an even greater element of God in the inner man. The glorified eternal body. This coming of Christ will spell the end of the spirits of Jezebel and Ahab and will destroy this perdition with the brightness of Christ’s coming. These who are bound by these spirits will then be bound to Christ. They will be brought subservient into His house and His city and they will come to learn of Him and to walk outside of their own carnal ability. It is into this victory that the Overcomer is caught up to, and they rule and reign with Christ forever in this with no ending of days or ending of life, they are granted the full power of resurrection as was Jesus.
So then The Mystery of Iniquity will then be completed. The Mystery of God will be the only one remaining at the beginning of the millennial age wherein Christ rules over the world of men. Ages to come after will reveal this rule and reign and great rejoicing will be in the lives of men who behold it. Not only will this mystery be done, but so also will be the end of man’s own kingdoms and monarchies. This will spell the end of all of man’s own carnal ways but it will all be exchanged for the rule of His Kingdom in the world of men wherein no more curse will dwell and no Jezebel or Ahab spirit will circumvent. Man will be free in this age that is dawning and it will be a wonder to all nations to come into The New Jerusalem of the Lord’s body there to abide forever in the joy and rejoicing of The Kingdom of God.
Forever in Christ…..
