1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. (KJV)
This is a great time to be alive in God! It is a truly wondrous period in the timeline of God’s plan for the ages. Remarkable changes are taking place in the heavens and the earth and we are witnessing a great cleansing of the heavens and the earth carried out by a predetermined and destined order of God, birthed out of the Church and caught up into the throne of God to be incorporated within a company of sealed, transformed, and transfigured sons of God. What a great honor to be chosen by God to be a participant in the most glorious event in all the annuls of time, the unveiling of the Lord Jesus Christ in His saints!
As has been aptly demonstrated by many writers of present truth, especially the current study by J Preston Eby, “From the Candlestick To The Throne”, the book of Revelation is the account of the unveiling of Jesus Christ that is taking place right now within earthen vessels of believers. All of the events, characters and symbols are descriptive of actual happenings taking place in the hearts of believers.
So, when we read in the 12th chapter of the 2 wonders in heaven, the woman and the dragon, and the birth that delivers a man child unto God, then we must understand that all of these elemental characters are first and foremost to be recognized as a part of our being. We all have the woman, we all have the dragon and we all have the man child contained within our entity and there is being acted out in our lives this great event of birth, war, separation, judgment, dominion, power and rule.
Personally, I see the great red dragon as the seat of power upon which the carnal, religious mind sits and operates from. I don’t see it as being a spirit of the air around us or as something that is entirely set apart from the events that are surrounding us in the heavenly places of God’s dealings in our lives, but I do see it as being very much a part of God’s workings in us and in all of mankind.
Throughout the history of the world, from the offerings of Cain and Abel on through the present day we live in, man has portrayed an inherent religious nature. The Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary describes the word “religion” as meaning: “supernatural constraint; sanction; religious practice. To restrain, tie back. The state of a religious person. The service and worship of God or the supernatural. Commitment or devotion to religious faith or observance. A personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs and practices. Scrupulous conformity, conscientiousness. A cause, principle, or a system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith.” The dictionary also describes these other words that are relative to the word, “religion.” Religionist – A person adhering to a religion; a religious zealot. Religiose – Religious, excessively, obtrusively and sentimentally. Finally, I would like to give the definition to the word, “religious” from the dictionary. “Relating to or manifesting faithful devotion to an acknowledged ultimate reality or deity. Example: a religious person, or a religious attitude. Of, relating to, or devoted to religious beliefs or observations. Scrupulously and conscientiously faithful. Fervent. Zealous.”
For some, especially those of the kingdom persuasion, if you were to mention the words religion or religious, they would immediately describe an image of religious institutions such as the Catholic Church or the Baptist denomination or perhaps the Buddhist religion. But, the definitions of the words religion and religious do not mean something exclusive to these types of religious institutions, but it relates more to the personal attitude of the actual person, rather than strictly the institutions themselves. Today, many kingdom teachers are vehemently waging a war on the word, “Christian”, and are presently asking their listeners to turn their back on everything that has to do with Christianity. For some, they give much more credence and respect to other religions such as Hinduism or Buddhism and even the concepts of the most unlikely religion of them all, The New Age Movement. Yes, the word religion is not a word that is exclusive to the belief in Jesus Christ, although many of these ministers would have everyone think it is.
As we can see from the definitions above, being religious does not even have to be about God at all. In fact, the following statement would be entirely proper given the above definitions. “The man religiously practiced not being religious.” Atheists are religiously devoted and given over to the thought that there is no God. In fact, Atheism would qualify as a religion, by the definition of the word religion. Atheists are just as religiously set in their ways as the Rev. Jerry Falwell or Pope John Paul are set in their ways. I am always meeting kingdom believers that are religiously practicing not being religious! Some are more faithful to their cause than some holiness Pentecostal people I have known. Just as some self righteous saints would never be caught going into an establishment that sold liquor, there are those religiously non-religious kingdom folks that wouldn’t darken a church door or stand behind a pulpit. Either way, it is a religious mind set at work, and it robs all of the participants of being able to let God be God.
To me, it is really funny to hear such ministry belittle anyone that would call themselves a Christian, as though that is more religious than someone that religiously avoids the term. The truth is that the religious mind is in every one of us and we all have operated under it’s spell. It is an inherent condition in man, a religious mind that demands his devotion to serve something other than the true image of God. Cain was a very religious man trying to earn God’s respect, the Tower of Babel was built out of a religious mind set, wanting to build a tower that would “reach to heaven”. See what I mean? Men have an inherent mind set to show impudence to God. That is why the purveyors of deception always bring God into their agenda. It isn’t enough to sell ocean front property in Arizona to the naïve, every con man eventually wants to give due devotion to the religious practice of trying to misrepresent God Himself.
Most of the wars fought in the history of the world, if not all of them, have been waged out of a religious motivation, and it is not exclusive to Christianity. The Middle East is a prime example of how the Great Red Dragon of the religious mind can drive people insane. This region of the world is not only the very throne of the religious mind, it is the habitation of the most violent and warring peoples in the world. The Red Dragon that resides in all men has wreaked destruction on all of the generations that have lived on this planet. From the great lecture halls of Athens to the temples of Buddha to the Hindu temples to the secret rooms of the Vatican to the heart of the city of Jerusalem, the Dragon has been devouring the children of the true Mother Church, disguising itself as the True Cause for every religious system in the world. Every group of people that have taken upon themselves an agenda to promote their religious concepts and practices have done so thinking that they had a responsibility to exert their viewpoint upon others. Greed, power, lust, destruction, and prejudice have all been disguised by the Red Dragon as virtues of religious piety. Even today, there are many deceivers that are on a full scale agenda to strip everyone of their present concepts of God, in order to drape their “higher truths” over the minds of the victims of their assault. Every one of them feel justified in doing so by the same standards of the most religious warmongers the world has ever known.
For some, there is no such thing as eternal truth, but they see truth as the next “new thing” being postulated by some religious zealot. For that person, truth is an ever changing concept, constantly changing forms according to the latest “revelation” being dreamed up by the Red Dragon, but for others, including myself, we see truth as a Person, unchangeable and immutable. Truth for us is not a thought pattern or an exercise of vain imaginations, but we see truth as Jesus Christ, the Person, not as an idea birthed by a “higher consciousness”. For us, truth is only being revealed, not changed. As truth is being revealed, our vision of truth is being clarified and what we once saw as trees, we now see as men, and although our interpretation has been clarified, that which we are interpreting remains the same, regardless of how we are able to conceive of it. A religious minded man will seek truth in everything, whichever feeds his lower, soulish nature, and he will draw from the landscape of plural “truths” and use them as they benefit his own desires. Whereas the true seeker of The Truth does not come to their own conclusions, but they seek to know Him as He IS, not as they desire Him to be. In the past, some people have reached such proportions of notoriety that men began to create a false image of the person themselves, and created a Legend of the person. This happened quite a bit in the American West in the 19th century. Legendary outlaws like Billy the Kid and the Dalton Gang were made out to be such men of legendary prowess and stature that when people saw them in person, they were dismayed at their actual presence, something far less than the legends described. But, for us, we are not following men’s legends about God, but we have come to know the Truth, and we have a daily walk with Jesus Christ, experiencing Him in a living relationship of Lord and King, and we don’t need exaggerated concepts about Him to feed our religious Dragon, but we have come to know that He is beyond all legendary descriptions, and He is beyond all the titillating phrases that people dream up about His presence and substance, for He is simply and profoundly, our life.
So, in my opinion, man is seen to be inherently religious concerning everything in his life that demands his devotion, whether it is in an institutional system of religion, or an avowed non-conformist, we are all bound to this religious Dragon. But, something has begun to change in heaven! Whereas in times past the Dragon has been free to do his dragon thing in the minds of men, we have recently had a door opened up in heaven that will bring the reign of the Dragon to an end. The one single element that will bring this to pass is the birth of the Manchild Order.
If we were to look at this event in the 12th chapter of Revelation, we would see that all of this that transpires is located in the heavens, not in the depths of darkness and despair, and the Dragon is as much a part of heaven at this point as the Woman is. The Woman is a powerful figure, not the beaten down, religious church order of today, which so many seem to make her out to be, but she is the True Church, the overcoming church, clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, a posture of great power and position. She is crowned with twelve stars and she is impregnated with a word, an order of such magnitude and destiny that the Dragon has taken notice of it and is positioning himself to devour the child as soon as it is born. Notice, by saying that the Dragon wants to “devour” the child, I do not mean that it wants to destroy the child, but it wants to incorporate that child into itself, to ingest it and to “dragonize” it. The Dragon relies upon the ability to take truths about God and redefine them. Erroneously, some think that the Dragon is out to “destroy truth” to hold it back from being birthed, but that is not it’s intention. The Dragon itself is religious! It loves to take the truth and camouflage it, to disguise it and give the truth a Dragon identity. The Dragon needs truth in order to live and be viable. The Dragon takes concepts of truth, ingests them and then changes them into the Lie. Without truthful concepts there would be no lies, for therein lies the power of the Dragon, to deceive and corrupt truthful things.
Notice, the Dragon is not concerned about the Woman herself. In fact, the Dragon needs the Woman to give birth to conceptual truths of God so the Dragon can feed it’s religious nature and so it has done since it’s inception. I do not believe that this is the first time the Dragon has positioned himself in front of the Woman to devour her offspring. In fact, if the truth be told, every order birthed by the Woman has ended up in the belly of the Dragon, a religious mindset that drags every truth of God into the murky depths of the religious, carnal mind. Every great move through the ages has eventually succumbed to the Dragon’s power, from the glory of the early church which ended up under the religious-political rule of Constantine on down through the corridors of Catholicism and Popery, on down through Martin Luther and the subsequent branching off of the many aspects of Protestantism and Denominationalism all the way through the present time of this century with the outpouring of the Pentecostal movement and the Latter Rain and sons of God movements, all have eventually gone away from the original spontaneous glory into a stagnation of religious mindsets. It is an inherent condition of man, to bring the things of the spirit into a manageable, logical, religious mindset that can be structured into precepts and concepts that are relatable to our finite mind.
As a result, there have been numerous moments of heavenly births by the Woman, but they have all come short of the fullness that is contained in Father God. So, the Dragon has been here before, has been positioned before the woman before and is expecting to devour the child the moment it is birthed from the woman, but this birth will be different from anything else the Woman has ever birthed. This is not conceptualized truth, nor is it representative truth, nor is it type and shadow truth. This is a birth of The Truth, which has nothing to do with the religious, carnal mind of men, but is the offspring of the loins of God, Present Truth, Unchanging Truth, Irresistible Truth, Life-Giving Truth. It is not going to be given to the Dragon like all the other truthful concepts have been given, and allowed to be devoured according to the plan of God. It will not be used as Israel was, given to the law to show the need for grace, nor is it to be used like the early church, to be an earnest of something that was to come in the ages ahead as a full possession, but this child is to be untouched by the Dragon. That is why the Dragon is so wroth, so full of rage at being cheated of it’s usual due, devouring this most precious of all births, because the Dragon has always before been given the things of God to corrupt them and make them his own, but not so with this birth. This child is marked with a destiny of change and disruption, because after it is caught up, all hell breaks loose in heaven and earth and nothing will ever be the same again!
The Manchild is not the Woman, although it is OF the Woman. This is not a church order that is being birthed by the Church, but it does come out of the womb of the Church, so it is OF the Church and BY the Church, but it is not coming forth to continue the work of the Church. It has a specific purpose, a very defined and focused destiny attached to it and there has never been anything like it in heaven or earth. The Manchild is gender specific, MALE, and it bears all the genetic characteristics of any male species. The Woman is feminine, gender specific as female, and she RECEIVES the word of God. The Manchild GIVES the word of God. The Woman adapts to the will of God, the Manchild establishes the will of God. The Woman maintains the order that God has set before her, the Manchild changes the present order and instigates a new order. The Woman keeps the house in order, feeds, clothes and instructs all in the house, and she keeps the house secure and safe. She operates out of a posture of defense, building walls of safety, avoiding the enemy, staying in the light. The Manchild operates outside of the house, seeking out the enemy, stalking death, pulling down strongholds, invading the enemy gates, overthrowing thrones and dominions. The Woman is a bearer of seed and a nurturer of that seed. The Manchild is a pro-creative order, and he makes war against all other strange seeds. The Manchild is a predator, a Lion of Truth, territorial, dominating.
The Manchild contains another genetic ingredient that the Woman lacks. In natural biological terms, it is called the “Y Chromosome”, which determines in all natural creatures whether the creature is female or male. Without this chromosome, the creature will be female, which is the base gender for all creatures. But, when the Y Chromosome is added, there are certain genetic changes that take place in the creature that give the male creature different perspectives and attitudes, even different genetic drives.
In every female, there are both male and female hormones, but there is more estrogen at work in the female than testosterone. When the Y Chromosome is present, that is reversed and the male hormone, testosterone, begins to produce in abundance and this hormone begins to make changes in the physical and emotional state of the creature. Whereas the female creature would be given physical attributes to help her bear children and nurse them to maturity, the male creature is given physical attributes to assure his ability to procreate himself. That is a very specific and important difference that we must be able to see and apply to the Woman Church and the Manchild Order. The Woman is only concerned about her ability to RECEIVE seed and bring it to birth. For her, the seed is only secondary to her ability to bear that seed to full term. For the Manchild, it is all about the SEED, the genetic drive to see that SEED reproduced without any mixture.
The Manchild is not intended to be a “feel good” order, one that everyone is going to be thrilled to see and to come to know. The Manchild is not going to be the type of order that tries to find middle ground that everyone can feel comfortable at. It does not intend to call for a “group hug” and it’s message isn’t, “Can’t we just all get along?”, but it is an order of establishment and restoration, back to the original intent of the Father for creation. For those that teach there is no further judgment for the sons to be instructed by, and for those that teach that there is no such thing as good and evil, the Manchild Order will not be a welcome sight. He is all about judgment, setting things right, shining the light upon the darkness, cutting off the house of flesh, setting the captives free, conquering, overcoming and he is all about righteousness.
The Manchild is a catalyst for war, separation, division, cleansing, purifying, kingdom dominion. He does not expect to have the Dragon throw his arm around him and work out a compromise so that the people don’t sense some kind of conflict amongst the two forces. No, the Manchild is all about conflict with the Dragon, and is not here to give him any space of operation. His birth foretells the demise of the Dragon’s reign, and no longer will the Woman and her seed be subject to the Dragon’s voracious appetite of deceit and deception of the Truth. The Manchild is here to re-establish the original mission statement of the Father, that He is a jealous God and He is the Supreme Authority and Creator of heaven and earth, and His seed is the only seed that will live in the hearts of men. The Manchild is birthed to bring that reality to pass, first in heaven and then in earth, until in all things, and through all things, the one true nature of all things comes from the seed of God. God, all in all.
Now, I realize that many people are pacifists when it comes to the kingdom of God, and the thought of disruption, discord, battles in the heavens, cleansings by fire, washing in the blood of the Lamb, and other cataclysmic events are taboo for them to even ponder. They have convinced themselves that God is only LOVE, and they interpret that to mean that God is incapable of being displeased with the behavior of His children and correcting them in any way, but He actually accepts them just as they are and He has no further expectations out of them. As one homosexual kingdom teacher once said, “If God didn’t intend for me to be this way, He wouldn’t have created me as such.”
In other words, don’t correct anything, just ignore it and hope it goes away. Reminds one of the famous three monkey’s that are known the world over as “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” but this type of conscious prevention against evil does nothing to solve the problem of evil, unless you want to go around with your hands over your eyes, ears and mouth. In fact, there is a factual account of the seven types of Pharisees, birthed out of the strict edict of how to avoid doing evil. The following is the listing of these actual types of Pharisees trying to avoid sin and evil, typified according to the Talmud.
“The Pharisees, according to the Talmud, were of seven kinds: (1) the Shechemite Pharisee, who simply kept the law for what he could profit thereby, as Shechem submitted to circumcision to obtain Dinah <Gen. 34:19>; (2) the Humbling Pharisee, who to appear humble always hung down his head; (3) the Bleeding Pharisee, who in order not to see a woman walked with his eyes closed, and thus often met with wounds; (4) the Mortar Pharisee, who wore a mortar-shaped cap to cover his eyes that he might not see any impurities or indecencies; (5) the What-am-I-yet-to-do Pharisee, who, not knowing much about the law, as soon as he had done one thing, asked, "What is my duty now? and I will do it" (cf. <Mark 10:17-22>); (6) the Pharisee from Fear, who kept the law because he was afraid of future judgment; (7) the Pharisee from Love, who obeyed the Lord because he loved Him with all his heart (Delitzsch, Jesus und Hillel).
(from New Unger's Bible Dictionary)
(originally published by Moody Press of Chicago, Illinois. Copyright (C) 1988.)
Notice, that even the Pharisees could serve God with a pure heart and out of love, but for the most part, they served Him in a defensive manner, avoiding the appearance of sin and evil and separating themselves from all other people that did not follow the teachings of the law after the order of the Pharisees. I am sure that you can even today see the similarities between certain types of Pharisees and people that you may know personally serving God out of such short sighted aspirations. My favorite is the “Bleeding Pharisee”! To be sure, most of these archetypes are readily recognized amongst the lawful, organized religious systems, but I also see it as a type of those that think as long as evil is not recognized, then evil doesn’t exist. In my view, this type of thinking is on the same order as those that think their denial of the existence of God would mean that God would go away. The fact is, none of these forces need us to believe they exist in order to be viable, as they exist on their own merits, whether it be good or evil. What we have come to in our dispensation of the Day of the Lord, is the hour to be able to deal with the very force of death and to see it put under the feet of the overcomers.
The Manchild is the order that will fulfill that destiny. When it is birthed, it’s purpose for being birthed is clearly stated, “Who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron”. Oh yes, this is not your gushing bride order, but this is the warrior order of God, an order that will possess the land, drive out the enemy, and establish the throne and dominion of Father God. It does not compromise, call in an arbriator, seek middle ground of agreement, barter a deal, and try to get everyone to feel alright about themselves. The Manchild Order is being birthed today to bring us to our right minds, to change our nature and our earthly existence and to establish in us the heart of our true Heavenly Father.
The Dragon is immediately confronted after the birth of the Manchild. Not by the Manchild itself, but the birth of the Manchild releases the angelic host to confront the Dragon and initiate a war upon it and the dragonian angels with it. Now, one must qualify what is meant by the word, “war”, here. It is not a long, drawn out battle, where the Dragon is raging against the heavenly host and Michael and his angels are barely hanging on, and then, at the last second before being defeated, the good angels win out and though bloodied and scarred, they hoist up the victory flag. No, actually it is short and decisive, with no sense of struggle at all.
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (KJV)
This account is so void of any drama or any sense of the possibility that things could have gone any other way for Michael and his angels, that we have to ask ourselves why this did not take place sooner. The answer would be that God used the Dragon for His own purpose, and for that period of time that the Dragon held sway in heaven, God allowed deception to reign in the minds of men, but only UNTIL, until the pending birth of the order that would bring heaven into divine order, and all other dominions and thrones and powers would have to come under the ultimate rule of the Manchild’s rod of iron. Today, I believe we are in the beginning phases of an order of God that is unlike any other order the world has ever known, and it is being established in the first fruits first, and then it will be established in increasing dimensions throughout the realm of the Woman and then to the nations and finally to all creation.
We must not understate the importance of the rule of the Manchild, one that is likened unto a “rod of iron.” This means His rule is one of unflinching determination and one that will beat down all resistance. This tremendous order does not come to us with an olive branch, or a willow branch, something supple and gentle. It’s rod is of unbending iron, a determination of will, not to be resisted by any other rule or authority.
The Manchild Order is not going to be concerned about being involved in a popularity contest. It is not out to make friends, to network with other orders, or to make people comfortable. It is endowed with a single eye, a singularity of vision and purpose, unlike any other order that has come before it. Mixture is not in it’s makeup. It is not about blending with other orders, but it is about separation and division. I know that for many people in this Kingdom word this seems to be an extreme definition of what they have had pictured in their minds concerning the last, defining order of God that has been foretold for many generations, but this is why I am writing this letter to you, so you may understand that we are about to meet a different order than any other order we have been involved in before.
Thank God for those orders that have worked the wonderful grace and love of the Father and have been able to hold the Body together in times of great stress and persecution. I praise God for the wonderful and necessary work of the Mother Church, which has given of itself to the Body and nurtured it throughout the ages. But, we have now come to the predetermined part of the Plan of God for there to be definite changes in the heavens and the earth. The time of birth is upon us. We can no longer remain in the womb of the Mother, but we must now come to the birth, the miraculous event that presses that which the Woman contained within her body for a season, out from her, into the atmosphere to be a fulfillment of all the Mother represented. The Manchild must come forth now, for he is destined to be the deliverer of the Woman and her seed. In order to do so, he must be redefined as something other than the Woman, although he has come FROM the Woman.
Deception has reigned in the minds of mankind for millenniums, but in this present day, the Lord is ready to bring an end to all religious deceptions and it is now time for the Truth to stand upon Mt Zion, embodied within a company of sons that has no equal. It is the time for the Kingdom of God to be fully manifested and demonstrated in a people, and they that have been qualified for this high honor are those that have come out of great persecution and testing and purification.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.(KJV)
Oh, yes, dear ones, these are those that stand before the throne of God and serve Him day and night, and those that are sealed in their foreheads are those that have come out of all the tribes of Israel, from all orders and all realms. God is separating out to Himself a people that will be one in spirit, purpose, mind, will and desire. They are the army of Joel, the saviors called forth from Mt Zion to cut off the house of Esau, the firstfruits, the elect, the remnant, those that have been called first, but manifested last. They are the priesthood of the coming of the Lord, called after the order of Melchizedek, having lost their life, they only have life in the Lord, they have given up their free will and choice and are servant-sons, going where the wind of the spirit blows, doing only those things the spirit says do, they are totally consumed into the fiery presence of the Lord.
I know it is hard for many to envision what such a company would be like, but I think you should know that this company is not your typical lovey-dovey, feely-touchy, cuddly-wuddly ministry. I doubt if this company of sealed sons would get many doors open to their ministry. In fact, I would think that most Pastors would bar the church door and gather everyone into the church basement if they came to service, because they would have an aura of such power and dominion that most people would feel afraid and nervous around them. They would not make good dinner guests, nor would most people want them to come over for a cup of coffee and a chat. No telling what they might do, or what they might say. They don’t go by the rules of civility and have no social graces about them. They are totally without regard for flesh, and have no measure of grace for things that are dead and corrupt. They could care less about how your day went, or if you were in a good mood or a bad mood, they would not be looking on your outward mask of disguise, but their eyes would burn a hole through you and your heart would be bare and naked before them. In them is the spirit of deliverance and everything that is not of God would be endangered by their presence.
Is this not how the true Old Testament prophet was perceived? Do you know that when a true, Old Testament prophet approached a city, that the whole city was put into an uproar? When the watchman on the walls saw a prophet of God approaching the city, he immediately went to the ruler of the city and announced that the prophet was close to the gates. Most times, the ruler of the city would send out a messenger to the prophet before he actually entered the city with a simple and to the point question. “Are you for us or against us?” In other words, no one really knew the prophet’s intent, whether he came with a blessing or a curse, but all knew for certain that the prophet was coming for one or the other. Are we ready for this kind of messenger to be in our midst again? If not, I am afraid that we will have to get ready nonetheless, for the Day is upon us and we must meet it face to face. Our prayers are being answered in the birth of the Manchild Order!
