TEARING DOWN THE HOUSE!
The Jews asked for a sign from Yahshua. His answer to them was in truth the first sign given to Moses to cause men to believe (see, The Signs That Cause Belief) - the staff that turned into a serpent, and then back into a staff. Yahshua declared to them:
"Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up" (John 2:19).
John tells us, "He was speaking of the temple of His body." On the one hand, Yahshua gave His earthly body over to Satan in death; but in greater and more complete fulfillment, it is the body of Christ, or Christianity, that is spoken of here. Yahshua, in the first sign given to Moses, will tear down the body of Christ, Christianity, and in three days, or 3,000 years, He will raise it up again. The end of Christianity's promised third day places its resurrection on its "Sunday Sabbath," or the first day, the day following the Millennial rest. It is then that "His body," Christianity, will be raised up to immortality.
And even as we see the tearing down of Christianity promised here as part of that first sign causing belief, this identical message is equally provided in a similar type and shadow, explicitly signified by the Spirit, as stated in Hebrews 9:8-9, and that is - the holy place must be torn down so the way into the holy of holies can be revealed. We find here a second testimony of Christianity being torn down. The old house of God, the Bethel, the holy place, or Christianity, must be torn down in order for the second Remnant to enter through the new way into the holy of holies. Whether it be spoken of as "the temple of His body," or the "holy place," the message is the same - the house of Christianity must be torn down!
When men look upon this temple of Christianity and marvel at its entirely false and corrupt structure, declaring as did one of Yahshua's disciples - "behold what wonderful stones of teachings and what wonderful buildings of doctrines" - Yahshua declares - "Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone shall be left upon another which will not be torn down" (Christianity's Mark 13:1-2)!
The false teachings and doctrines of demons in Christianity are as written of and as often quoted and claimed by Christians:
"Order on order, order on order,
Line on line, line on line,
A little here, a little there,"
That they may go and stumble backward, be broken, snared, and taken captive (Isaiah 28:13).
"Line upon line," "a little here, a little there," stone upon stone, Christians have built their temple of false doctrines and false church structures for 2,000 years; and they all stumble backward, are broken, snared, and taken captive by the enemy (evidenced in the end by their own deaths). And as promised by Yahshua, not one stone of their false teachings and doctrines of demons will be left upon another; they will all be torn down!
This is the purpose of this writer - to tear down this "temple" of the body of Christ, corrupt stone of false teaching by corrupt stone of false teaching. This is first effected in the minds of the second Remnant, where old stones of error have stood ridged with tradition. The teaching of the second Remnant will be the work that tears that temple down, first in the minds of individuals, a Remnant, then at large at Yahshua's return! Yahshua must tear that temple down; the staff that has turned into a serpent must be restored once again to become a staff in His hand. The false doctrines of Christianity that lead to death must be destroyed!
This same wall-shaking power and testimony is evidenced in the fall of Jericho, which we learned in the writing, Tabernacles And Devoted Things, is a clear prophetic foretelling picture of the first fruits Remnant. And how is that Remnant taken? Once again, by tearing down those stone-upon-stone walls of false teachings. As sure as the walls of Jericho came down with a shout, the second Remnant of Yahweh will shout, and the false teachings of Christianity that stand against the work of Yahweh will have to come down! This is the third evidence that the teachings of Christianity must come down, and come down suddenly!
This sudden fall of Christianity is reminiscent of Yahshua's words regarding the fall of the house built upon the sand - "and great was its fall!" What house is this that must come down because it was built upon sand? It is the house of those of whom Yahshua had just spoken - "Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. ... Not every one who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness'" (Matthew 7:15, 21-23).
And how is it that this house that falsely calls out, "Lord, Lord," comes down? Yahshua declared that it will come down when the rain descends, and the river comes, and the wind blows, and they burst against that house, and great will be its fall! Is it not obvious what is being spoken of here? These are not rains and rivers and winds of adversity (although for Christianity, they will be). These rains and rivers and winds that burst against this house are the waters and winds of the latter rain!
The latter rain will suddenly come and burst against the house of Christianity that prophesies, casts out demons, and performs many miracles in the name of the Lord; yet that house will come down with a great fall! This is already occurring in the minds of Yahweh's second Remnant, but it will occur at large with Yahshua's return!
So as a fourth witness, we see that the house of Christianity, which is built upon the sand, will suddenly, like the walls of Jericho, with a shout, with a burst of great waters and wind, fall to the ground - and great will be its fall!
As a fifth and final witness to the necessity of tearing down Christianity, the law of the cleansing of the house in which the "mark of leprosy" has become visible, is added with exceptional weight! You will be amazed to find how clearly this law reveals what Yahweh has already performed and what He will perform in His church!
From its beginning, Christianity received the "mark of leprosy," or the mark of the beast, in its house. (Attested to by the mark of the beast "seven" in Acts 6.) Christianity is an unclean work, corrupted and disfigured by the leprosy of sin and error. In Leviticus 14:33f, Yahweh's law regarding the house in which is found the mark of leprosy, requires first that the house be quarantined and in seven days the presence of leprosy confirmed. If confirmed, then the stones with "the mark" were to be torn out, thrown out into an unclean place, the walls in the house scraped, and the plaster dumped in an unclean place. With this cleansing process completed, the extracted stones were to be replaced with new stones, and the walls replastered with new plaster.
This is precisely what Yahweh did to the house of Christianity in the 1500's! Right in the middle of the church's 3,000 year allotted period, Yahweh tore out the stones that had "the mark" of the detestable leprous teachings of the Catholic Church, and replaced them with new teachings; then He replastered the walls. Thus in the 1500's, Yahweh carried out in the church the first part of His law concerning the house where the mark of leprosy breaks out - He cleansed the house of Christianity!
But there is more to this law; for we read that if "the mark" breaks out again in that house after the stones have been torn out and the plaster replaced -
"He shall therefore tear down the house, its stones, and its timbers, and all the plaster of the house, and he shall take them outside the city to an unclean place" (vs. 45).
This is exactly what must now take place in the leprous house of God, Bethel, or Christianity. In the 1500's Yahweh carried out the required first step in the law for the house with the leprous mark. Now, it is very obvious that "the mark," the mark of the beast, that was on Catholicism, the city set on seven hills, has broken out as well in the new stones and plaster of Protestantism. The leprous "mark" was not cleansed from the house, though Yahweh performed His first required procedure. Both Catholicism, as well as Protestantism, have evidenced the mark of leprosy. Yahweh's law regarding the attempt to cleanse the house of the mark of leprosy was fulfilled; and in the year 2000, it is now legally required that Yahweh tear down the house!
This tearing down of the house of Christianity is precisely the promised and foreshadowed event spoken of in Hebrews 9, which has been briefly addressed. The 1517 Reformation was a prelude to what must now take place. That first work was only a partial removal and replacement of leprous doctrinal stones and old plaster; but the house itself was left standing. The true 2000 Reformation, which is already beginning, is the fulfillment of the required second step in dealing with the leprous house. It is the second Remnant Reformation of the tearing down of the house of God - the required tearing down of the holy place, in order that the way into the holy of holies may be revealed. The second Remnant is being revealed, and this is the Elijah work that will ascend alive into the holy of holies.
But in the year 2000, no longer is the required thesis announcing the Reformation nailed to a church door. In 1517, that was the accepted place for making announcements. Today things are different, on a much larger scale, and that thesis is nailed to the gate, to the Bill Gate of the internet. But nonetheless it is nailed for everyone in the entire world to freely read; and it is nailed there by a nailer, a Gary Naler at remnantbride.com. Let the world know:
the 2000 Reformation has begun!
We have thus conclusively seen five of Yahweh's clear testimonies of what MUST now take place with Satan-dominated Christianity. But there are others as well. For example, little David with his five smooth stones brought down with a great crash the giant, Goliath. The examples we have here are simply our select "five smooth stones" with which to bring down the Philistine Goliath in your mind. For some, a smooth stone will strike the Philistine teachings squarely on the forehead, precisely where there is the mark of the beast, and that stone will sink into the forehead, slaying the giant, who will fall "on his face to the ground" (Samuel 17:49). Just as the stone from David's sling sank into the forehead of Goliath, so these truths will sink into the minds of a Remnant and cause those Philistine lies to fall on their face before Yahweh. (Or likewise, one must sneeze "seven" times to get the "mark" out in order for their eyes to be opened - 2 Kings 4:35.)
• Stone # one:
Yahshua will tear down "the temple of His body," the body of Christ, and raise it up after their third day - John 2:19.
• Stone # two:
The holy place, Christianity, must be torn down in order that the way into the holy of holies may be revealed for the second Remnant - Hebrews 9:8.
• Stone # three:
The walls of Jericho must come down with a shout in order to obtain Yahweh's Remnant first fruits - Joshua 6.
• Stone # four:
The house of Christianity is the house built upon the sand; and when the flood waters and wind of the latter rain burst against it, great will be its fall - Matthew 7:15-27.
• Stone # five: (the heavy!)
The house with the mark of leprosy, the mark of the beast, must now be torn down, Yahweh having first performed His required cleansing in the 1517 Reformation - Leviticus 14:33f.
This tearing down has already begun. In Passover, 2000, the old building stones of doctrinal error began to fall in the minds of a small rib bride who came out of the sleeping body of Christ. Now, Yahweh is taking that little rib and He is fashioning a bride for His Son. As that bride grows and develops, as that bride is strengthened by His power, more and more, others will come out of Christianity; and in their minds the stone walls of Christianity's corrupt teachings will continue to come down, and great will be their fall!
