Kissing, Lips, and Attesting Glory
CONT., page 8
If you think all of this is too hard, you need to embrace it. A king is coming who is not here by virtue of popular democratic choice, but by virtue of theocratic rule. Immanuel is coming in the glory of the Father with His angels, and He will recompense every man according to his deeds (Matthew 16:27). His coming this time will be in His masculine role and not in His feminine role. Instead of bearing a cross, He will rule with a rod of iron. So, you can either change now, or change later. As Paul said, “But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged.”
To Christians who have played church and despised Yahweh’s government, Yahshua has warned:
“Not everyone 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 will enter. 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 7:21-23).
Likewise Yahshua warned:
“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation [particularly relevant to today], the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels” (Mark 8:38).
And He is not just talking about someone saying they are a Christian. It is LIVING Him—not looking like the world, not talking like the world, not acting like the world, not doing the things of the world, but living righteously, godly, according to His government, His ways, and His example. As John stated, “By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked” (1 John 2:5-6).
Christianity has been pathetic in that they teach “grace” to the point of licentiousness (Jude 1:4). “Jesus loves you just the way you are” is not true. This pabulum is an invitation to sin. In contrast we read:
You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in your striving against sin; and you have forgotten the exhortation which is addressed to you as sons, “My son, do not regard lightly the discipline of the Lord, nor faint when you are reproved by Him; for whom the Lord loves He disciplines, and scourges every son whom He receives.” It is for discipline that you endure; God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom his father does not discipline? But if you are without discipline, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate children and not sons (Hebrews 12:4-8).
The book of Hebrews with its message of entering into Yahweh’s rest of the Millennial reign, of entering into the veil as an anchor of hope for others, is unmistakably a book to and about the Remnant. Therefore, we are wise to give heed to its sober instruction. Its message, along with that of James and John, is not what Christianity teaches. They are moreso followers of Paul. Instead of it being “Jesus loves you just the way you are,” in Hebrews we read:
It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God (Hebrews 10:31).
And to those who would think you can do whatever you want to do and live however you want to live, you will come to a disturbing realization:
For if we sin willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries (Hebrews 10:26-27).
Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude, by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe; for our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:28-29).
Is all of this harsh and casting Yahweh and Yahshua into something they are not? Hardly. In fact, we are wisely being realistic about them and their righteous requirements. Grace IS NOT the right to do anything one pleases without consequences; rather, it is the strength to no longer walk in our old nature but to do what is righteous and good. Here are three passages more people should acknowledge:
The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever (Psalm 111:10).
The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction (Proverbs 1:7).
The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding (Proverbs 9:10).
It is not wise to quote all of the fluff scriptures and ignore these that lead to wisdom and true knowledge.
In Until Shiloh Comes, we address that the true translation of Genesis 49:10 is:
“The rod shall not depart from Judah,
Nor the decree from between his feet,
Until to whom it belongs comes,
As noted in that writing, there is no way this passage can possibly refer to Yahshua as the coming of Shiloh. How can the rod not depart from Judah until Yahshua, who is of the tribe of Judah, comes? Yahshua is Judah, so it would never depart from Judah if He was Shiloh. No, the Hebrew word used here must be translated according to its meaning—“to whom it belongs.” And to whom does this rod belong? It belongs to the obedient people. Who are those obedient people? They are the Bride who make themselves ready (Revelation 19:7).
Let us draw to a close with some final revealing testimony from this amazingly attesting temple of God—our human bodies. There is no question that our bodies are as functional as they are prophetic. And why not? The kingdom of heaven is all the more functional, so our bodies are in harmony with that heavenly pattern of usefulness. So, let us ask a question that, upon first consideration, seems to have a very obvious answer. Here is the question: Why is it that women were given breasts that produce milk? Obvious answer, right? To nurse the babies that women bear.
But let us now ask another question. What is the prophetic significance of milk? The answer to this is clearly set forth in the Scriptures—it is the basic teachings that are for spiritual babes, those who are fleshly. Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able, for you are still fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men?” (1 Corinthians 3:2-3).
Now for yet another probing question. To whom did Yahweh give the display of glory on their chest—to the woman or the man? Clearly, Yahweh placed the attesting glory of hair on the man. And what is the difference between a man’s chest and a woman’s chest, other than this difference in glory. The woman’s chest bears the breasts, while the man’s chest, though having nipples, is comprised of strong muscle. Do you now see the testimony, once again in the difference between the woman and the man?
The woman is the weaker vessel and is not allowed to teach. In this weakness she provides milk to the babes. This is what the feminine first Remnant provided, and this is what Yahshua even provided in His feminine coming. Just as He said to His disciples, “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now” (John 16:12). In His feminine coming He gave men milk.
Then what does the male offer from his breasts? Remember, he does have nipples that equally identify nourishment. But as Paul contrasted with milk, the male work that has the right to teach provides, as his strong chest affirms, solid food. This is the food that Immanuel will teach when He comes in His masculine role, and it is the food you are eating right now from the masculine second Remnant. And for both Immanuel, as well as the second Remnant, these have the attesting glory that the former did not have. May Yahweh fulfill His word and glorify His name.
Having noted this concerning milk, and drawing from what we have seen already, why does man’s flesh entice him so to look on the breasts and posteriors of women? You can be certain that the natural once again prophesies of the spiritual. Spiritually, why is the flesh of the man so enticed by these? Because flesh man desires only the milk and dung of Christianity, leading to lack, defilement, and the ruin of the kingdom.
Speaking of a child maturing, Proverbs 22:6 now has a whole new meaning. Literally it says, “Train up a child in the way; moreover, when he is bearded he will not depart.” The first Remnant was called “the way.” They were never called Christians. Moreover, when the Remnant are bearded and bring forth Immanuel, we will not depart.
It is indeed my hope that what is written here will be a burning coal, a rizpah, that will be applied to your lips, your split covenant parts, and cleanse them. As it is written in Amos 4:12, so let us be mindful of the weight and requirement of this sober time. Following Yahweh’s chastisement, He declared:
“Because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God.”
