LAY YOUR HEAD ON THE STONE
Then Jacob departed from Beersheba and went toward Haran. And he came to the place and spent the night there, because the sun had set; and he took one of the stones of the place and put it under his head, and lay down in that place. And he had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven; and behold, the messengers of God were ascending and descending on it (Genesis 28:10-12).
I received an e-mail from a lady, expressing what was taking place in her after reading the marvelous truths here that Yahweh is opening the eyes of His Remnant Bride to see. Here is what she said:
Sometimes I feel lately that God is just ripping apart my life, and that the reality that I once knew as "Christendom" no longer exists. God is changing so many of my viewpoints, and everything is happening so fast. (I like the fast part though - it certainly is not dull.) It is almost like I am becoming a new person, that sometimes I do not recognize.
That which is taking place in this lady's mind is exactly what took place in my own mind in June, 1994. The Spirit of Yahweh came upon me and an earthquake took place in my thinking, in my ideas. Much of what I had believed quickly came tumbling down, as Yahweh began speaking to me and opening His word to me, showing me things neither I nor anyone else had ever considered, seen, or understood before.
What took place in my head beginning in 1994? What is happening in this lady's head? What is happening in the heads of many others as well? And what is it that must happen in your head? Here is your answer: We have laid our heads on the Stone and we are seeing a dream of messengers ascending and descending!
What is this stone on which we lay our heads? Yahshua said in first Remnant Matthew 21:44 and second Remnant Luke 20:18 - "Every one who falls on that stone (Himself) will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust." What then will happen today when one places their head on the Stone, Yahshua? Exactly what happened to me in '94. Exactly what is happening to this lady. Much of the things one formerly held to be true in Christianity, in your life, will be "broken to pieces"!
If you are the Bride and as the beloved John you desire to place your head on Yahshua's breast, then while reading these writings, the same thing will happen to you as He foretold - many of your old thoughts and ideas will be "broken to pieces"!
But equally important, while the Stone is having its changing affect upon your head, you too, like fleeing Jacob, will dream! What will you dream? You will dream of a people, messengers, who will be given a ladder from heaven that allows them to ascend and descend - to ascend to Yahweh, to receive from Him, and return again.
This is the ultimate hope of and promise to specifically the Remnant - to occupy immortal bodies that will ascend and descend. But then and even now, we, the Remnant Bride, need a mind that will equally ascend and descend. This is what Yahweh is doing for His Bride now, in advance, as an attesting prelude, even while we remain in this flesh. We are receiving things from Yahweh which no man has ever before received. But in order to receive these things, many old ideas and thoughts and even plans will be "broken to pieces" and come down.
In fact, dramatic imminent change was precisely the issue when Yahshua spoke these very words about Him being the stone. In Matthew, Yahshua preceded this statement by saying - "Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken away from you, and be given to a nation producing the fruit of it." This was a shattering and most unsettling idea for the Jews, so much so that they sought to kill Him. But this is precisely the message we are now once again receiving from Yahshua - the kingdom of God is taken away from Christianity and is being given to the Remnant. "And he who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust."
In Malachi 3:1 we read - "'Behold, I am going to send My messenger, and he will clear the way before Me; and the Lord, whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple. And the messenger of the covenant, in whom you delight, behold, he is coming,' says Yahweh of hosts." The Hebrew word here for "messenger" is the same word used in describing the "messengers" ascending and descending. Why is this? Because Elijah, the messenger, is the same work seen in Jacob's dream. The Remnant is the Elijah who prepare the way for the soon coming King.
Yahweh must perform a work that makes this "rumination" of man possible - his ability to ascend and descend, qualifying him as "clean" (Deuteronomy 14:6-8). He must provide to the Remnant Elijah the ladder, the capability, of receiving and delivering Yahweh's truth regarding His kingdom. That which is written in Jeremiah 3:15, we are seeing fulfilled today - "I will give you shepherds after My own heart, who will feed you on knowledge and understanding." This is the knowledge and understanding Yahweh is providing His Bride today.
This is likewise the knowledge and understanding which one receives only by laying one's head on the Stone. This is the knowledge and understanding foretold when the beloved John laid his head on the Stone in order to learn who it was who would betray the Son of God (John 13:21-26). This foreshadowed betrayal is by Christianity, as you too will soon see when you lay your head on Yahshua's breast.
We invite you now to lay your head on the Stone, or even as the beloved Bride to lay your head on Yahshua's breast, and receive from Him that which is from above.
