Every Christian needs to understand further truth

Introduction 2/13/2011 6:49 PM
What is this?
This is a journal of the spiritual guidance given by God about deeper truths. Nothing is left hidden, for all that was kept secret was meant to be revealed at the right time (Mark 4:21).

The information is in chronological order with notes and links to related information. It demonstrates how we cannot jump to conclusions about interpreting guidance or just follow things blindly, whether it is guidance from Scripture or live guidance. We need to see the whole picture and connect the right pieces together to understand the full truth. It can only be done with God's help because man cannot interpret correctly on his own. Interpretation belongs to Him (2 Peter 1:20, Genesis 40:8).

The enemy fakes guidance and forces bad interpretations, so it is important to examine things closely, but do not just reject everything because the Lord still anoints servants to speak for Him and continues to do so until there is unity in the faith (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21; Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22-23; Ephesians 4:11-16).

What is the guidance?
Guidance can be Scripture, Words, visions, dreams and other things the Lord gives or makes us notice. Most of the guidance here was given directly to me. Guidance from other parties is noted appropriately.

God works through many people in His Church Body and our guidance needs to go together to get the whole picture, so we should not limit ourselves to getting information from a few favorite sources. However, because we cannot just follow blindly, we cannot simply believe everything said or taught even if it seems to come from the Lord, saints, angels or established preachers and even anointed servants, because there are imposters misleading the church, and even true servants of the Lord can be misled (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22).

Examine and test things with wisdom (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21). We cannot get that wisdom without a lot study of Scripture and guidance from good teachers who correctly handle things (2 Timothy 2:15).
Terms 2/13/2011 7:27 PM
Bride/New Jerusalem - the church in general and God's People - all who are saved into eternity; She is symbolized by New Jerusalem in Revelation 21 & 3:12; In the Christian age, She is engaged to be married to Christ (see Bridegroom below). More loosely the Bride is any sect of Christianity including Judaism (Isaiah 49:18), who were the first betrothed nation with God, but technically any sect who do not believe in Christ as Lord and Savior is not betrothed to Christ.

Bridegroom - Jesus Christ, the Son and God; Jesus is referred to as the Bridegroom or Husband in the New Testament many times (Matthew 9:15; Matthew 25; Mark 2:19; Luke 5:34; John 3:29; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Revelation 19-22).

Harlot Bride, Harlot Church, Harlot - the church walking in sin or who conducts ministry in the wrong ways. Some people take offense to the "harlot" term, but realize that God is pointing to the institution of the Harlot Church. He is not pointing fingers at individuals or condemning the church, but pointing out that His people as a whole need to change.

Pure Bride/Spotless Bride - the perfected church or People of God who walk with Him correctly having removed sin from Her, and so moved from engaged Bride to married Wife - prepared and refined as prophesied in Revelation 19 and 21. All the gold and gemstones in New Jerusalem symbolize the resulting refinement and sanctification of God's People after they're gone through the righteous acts that are symbolized by the Bride's wedding clothes (Revelation 19:8). The Pure Bride is being perfected now, and since she comes with the New Heaven and Earth in Revelation, the Pure Bride will only be complete at that time. That goes with the tares or weeds in God's Kingdom (false servants planted by Satan and their teaching) being removed at the end of the age (Matthew 13:24-30,36-43), so is a long process to perfect the Bride as a Body. The process to become pure as individuals is also long and full of failure because no one is without sin except for the Lord Himself (Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrew 4:15). God has us go through sin and failure so that we learn through them and look to Him for salvation (Romans 11:32).

River of Life - Spiritual guidance from God, the Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost (Living Water). The River is also the great outpouring of His Spirit prophesied for the Last Days - "In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people..." - which has been happening since the first Pentecost (Acts 2:17, Joel 2:28, see 3/23/2009).

1/18/2009 Sunday
I noted the sermon at church was about King Josiah (
see next day 1/19/2009)

1/19/2009 Monday
I was spiritually guided to 2 Chronicles 34 about King Josiah, which was exactly what the sermon yesterday was about. This was one of the first instances I noticed the gift of direct Bible guidance where my Bibles would open directly to Scripture that pertained to events in the moment. I thought it was a coincidence at first, but it kept occurring over and over again with a scary precision. This precise guidance lines up with other guidance to give more detailed pictures of the truth.

These were my early days dealing with spiritual gifts. Now through many years learning about them, I found we must not blindly accept spiritual powers as always being from God. Some spiritual powers are not from God (through His Spirit or heavenly host of angels), so we must be careful not to blindly accept anything that is supernatural.

alse gifts come from the enemy who usually get hooks through sin, such as divination can bring demons like Python that can prophecy through you (Acts 16:16). Always test spirits by having them acknowledge Jesus came in the flesh as Christ the Messiah incarnate (1 John 4:1-3). But even testing this way may not be enough because God can send lying spirits that will pass that test. He uses lying spirits and the enemy for various purposes, such as to test and teach us (1 Kings 22:19-23; 2 Chronicles 18:18-22; Job). God created all spirits, including Satan and demons, and He commands them all (Hebrews 12:9). He allowed Satan to attack Job with limitations so that Job would be tested and learn from it.

Even if spiritual gifts are from the Lord, they must be used with wisdom, humility, and discipline. Doing things the wrong way or for the wrong reasons will backfire and can turn a gift into pride and attention seeking.
Remember that God gives spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit for the common good, not for personal profit or the success of a particular ministry or church (1 Corinthians 12:7).

Seeking spiritual guidance in the wrong ways can be divination that brings the enemy and false guidance. Don't use things like fortune telling, tarot cards, astrology, horoscopes, spiritualists/mediums, guided meditation, etc. to get information. People of God should be inquiring of Him on things (Isaiah 8:19).

We also should not rush to get guidance or understand it. Jumping to conclusions has brought the church to many errors. I learned this in my first years of serving the Lord. It brought me to many errors as well as the church, which I often noted in my early teachings. It is better to let God guide in His time, but even if you are patient and try to give God time to guide, it can still be messed up by the enemy, because they often give conflicting guidance and can try to flood you with it so you fall to error.

This is the flood of water from Satan in Revelation 12:15 that is used to overtake the Bride. If you are not knowledgeable about spiritual guidance, Scripture and the enemy then it is very easy to be mislead. And worse, if you accept false guidance from demons, it can give them hooks into you so they are difficult to get rid of.

If you have demons trying to mislead you, it is impossible to get direction from God completely correct. How can you get things right when you take lies and false guidance from the enemy and include it with the truth God gives? It makes an incorrect, skewed picture of the truth. We have to be able to get rid of the enemy and false guidance completely to follow God correctly.

God knows this, but He has us go through trials of working with the enemy and false guidance so we can learn and mature. Trying to follow God with the enemy interfering will not make the church free of error, but it does help perfect us individually as we go through the spiritual warfare and learn. Our fight is not of flesh and blood but against the powers of spiritual darkness (Ephesians 6:12). Still, we must be rid of the enemy to continue into a life free from their darkness and lies, so combating the enemy includes taking out whatever hooks they have in us and getting deliverance.

1/26/2009 Monday
I was guided to Luke 1, which is about witnessing, recording and John the Baptist preparing God's people. Like John the Baptist and Luke, we are preparing the Bride and called to be witnesses/historians with accurate testimony, such as given here.

John the Baptist is foretold in Luke 1 but very important is Luke 1:17 says, John will come "in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous - to make ready a people prepared for the Lord," which goes with how we are preparing God's people for Christ's return and wedding (Revelation 19:7-9; Matthew 22:1-14).

Being righteous, such as by following God's commands, keep from sin and fulfilling terms of His covenants, brings blessings and protection. These blessings and protections are also given to our children
. That is one reason why Scripture says, "the hearts of the fathers will turn to the children." It is because the heads of a household who walk in righteous acts and out of sin will bring blessings to family members as well (Exodus 20:6; Deuteronomy 5:10). It is a trickledown effect similar to the inheritance of sanctification that believing spouses impart to their unbelieving spouse (1 Corinthians 7:14).

The hearts of parents turning to their children also refers to walking in fuller knowledge of God's laws and covenants, so we can avoid committing sin and bringing the consequences on our children through generational curses (Exodus 20:5; Leviticus 26:39; Numbers 14:18; Deuteronomy 5:9; Jeremiah 2:9,32:18,36:31; Hosea 4:6). If we know and walk in the details of God's laws and covenants, we can prevent these generational curses. It may not seem right that our children and descendants be punished for our sin, but God wants us to see how serious it is to sin and that we need to think about more than ourselves when we are tempted to do wrong.

This goes with John 7 in future guidance (2/28/2009) to show the misconceptions many people have when they interpret Scripture, like still expecting Elijah to come today, but Jesus said John the Baptist was that Elijah (Matthew 11:14) even though John denied he was Elijah in the flesh or the Messiah (John 1:21), which is true. John was Elijah in power and spirit, not Elijah reincarnated. He was also the fulfillment of the one to come before Christ in the Last Days (Malachi 3:1,4:5).

1/28/2009 Wednesday
I was guided to Ecclesiastes 3 and John 7 and noted they have a common theme - a time for everything, which refers to having patience to correctly get revelation from God. It refers to guidance not being understood immediately or with only one or two pieces of information. This goes with Ezekiel 24 because Israel was sent into exile as a discipline for her unfaithfulness (harlot acts) just as the Harlot Church today is being refined and changed by going through the hardships of our time.

This plan for God's people has the purpose of renewal behind it (see 4/17/2011). It happens by getting rid of the wrong ways of doing things and changing direction to align with what God wants. Don't confuse the reality of hardship with condemnation. This is not about eternal salvation, but has to do with keeping God's commands and the judgment from breaking them (sin). Having eternal salvation never negated God's laws (Matthew 5:17-19) or the requirement for people to walk in them. The New Covenant of Grace in Christ unshackles us from the need to keep God's commands in every way to have eternal salvation (Romans 8:15; Galatians 5:1), but there are still serious consequences to sin or breaking God's commands (see 12/16/2011).

1/31/2009 Saturday
I was guided to Zephaniah 3 and the beginning of Haggai about the future of Jerusalem, restoring God's people, bringing all the nations to acknowledge Him, and finish building His temple. This goes with Revelation 21 because the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem is the future for God's people and He is calling all of us to help build her by coming out of sin.

2/15/2009 Sunday
I was guided to Psalm 1, which highlights the differences between the righteous and the wicked. Their paths will end up in opposite destinations as it relates to being with God in eternity. It also notes we should always keep God's laws in heart and mind (Psalm 1:2) and the righteous should "live and let live" - "Blessed is the man who... does not stand in the way of sinners..." (Psalm 1:1)

The church is generally doing things wrong because of ignorance in God's laws and what He wants. She suffers from sin committed in ignorance because of her lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). To keep from doing this, the church must go back to God's laws and covenants and understand them correctly so she can grab her full inheritance in heaven. The church can understand her errors if she sees she is focused on incomplete pictures of the truth.

She can get to God's planned destination (the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem), but she can only do that by seeing the bigger picture and include His live guidance instead of only focusing on her selective view and interpretation of Scripture.

The true and correct interpretation of His Word, whether it is Scripture or live guidance, cannot be gotten by selecting only the pieces that we think we understand or that peak our interest. All the pieces are needed, as well as God's interpretation (see 5/4/2010), so we can see the complete picture without errors.

2/26/2009 Thursday
I was guided to 1 Corinthians 11 about what is proper and God's order of things - God is the Head of Christ, Who is the Head of the church, and everything comes from God and if we judged ourselves we would not come under judgment and receive His discipline. This goes with the ring given to me on
11/7/2010. Go there for details.

2/27/2009  Friday
I was guided to Titus 2 about waiting for the return of Christ, conducting a life of faith properly, and not arguing over Scripture. We should simply witness and present, and make an effort to correct believers who do not understand correctly. The enemy perpetuates the Harlot Church with unsound doctrine by twisting the truth and encouraging bad interpretations. This keeps the church from seeing the more complete picture God gives in Scripture and live guidance.

This goes with guidance about the number 213 representing the end of this age and preparing for the return of Christ (Titus 2:13). Walking as His Pure Bride is the ultimate goal God has in mind for us. We who've been given the guidance and experiences to witness this  are not to argue over interpretations. We must simply give our testimony and help where we can, but everyone must decide for themselves whether they wish to proceed towards that goal.

2/28/2009 Saturday
I was guided to John 7 about drinking from God's Spirit and people's misconceptions about Scripture, which leads them astray. There is a parallel about how confused people were about Jesus being the Messiah in that day and today with how God is directing the church. Our preconceived ideas and interpretations of Scripture are blinding us like the Jews were blinded.

In John 7, the people were divided about who Jesus was. Was He the Prophet predicted in Malachi or the Christ-Messiah? But isn't the Christ to come from Bethlehem, they asked? Why does this Man come from Galilee? (John 7:41-42) And so, many rejected Him without further investigation.

They knew God's Word as the church today does, but because of their linear thinking they dismissed Jesus, who grew up in and apparently came from Galilee (Nazareth is in the district of Galilee), but He also came from Bethlehem farther south where He was born. The secular world is blinded by the same kind of linear thinking. They dismiss the little details giving evidence for God, and unfortunately, most of the church today is wrong about doctrine like the Pharisees were about Jesus. The church has been overlooking the details brought to light through God's live guidance.

I was given the Scripture of John 7 many times, so it is very important to understand the themes related to it. Don't let a linear mindset blind you to our Living God who is moving and speaking now. Investigate further...

3/1/2009 Sunday
I was guided to 1 Kings 18 where Elijah, the last true prophet after Ahab and Jezebel killed the others, gathers all the false prophets at Mount Carmel to show that the Lord is the one true God. All the false prophets are killed afterwards.

This guidance goes with
3/4/2009 and how the church's erroneous paths need to be corrected. The Harlot Church believes she understands God, but the truth is she is in error because she jumps to conclusions and misinterprets live guidance and Scripture. She doesn't let God interpret by looking at all the pieces of guidance. They can be given to many people and must be connected properly.

The church's incorrect way of interpreting things has created wrong notions of God's Kingdom, because she overemphasizes the wrong things, like feelings, passion and judgment. Things like love for God and having a personal relationship with Him are valid parts of walking with God, but they are only a part and not the most important things to understand.

The relationship the Harlot Church has with God is unhealthy because she has an excessive focus on romantic notions of God and His love. It makes her believe in unrealistic and untrue versions of His Kingdom that place God's laws and covenants behind her notions of love. She has to turn that around, because law and covenant are the framework creating the structure behind His Kingdom and everything else in Creation - everything works within laws or rules God created.

There is a lot of evidence for the importance of law and covenant, but the church dismisses it because she overemphasizes God's love and focuses more on emotions, joy and celebration (see 8/10/2011). She needs to understand how God's laws and covenants work to have a healthier relationship with Him now and into eternity.

Jumping to conclusions about guidance prevents us from seeing the correct picture. Patience and discipline must be learned to teach as God intends and that same approach is needed to successfully become the perfected Pure Bride and put on our wedding garments. The proper way into spiritual maturity is to progress slowly, while not overemphasizing emotions and worldly interpretations.

However, false beliefs and false guidance from the enemy can blind us and keep us from changing, which is a reason why the church finds it difficult to change. Getting rid of those false beliefs, false guidance and enemy influences is important for us to more into a truly united and perfected church.

Another reason for the church's difficulties in seeing the truth is given on 12/20/2010 where an analogy is given to show how our worldly interpretations keep us from seeing the truth.

3/3/2009 Tuesday
I was guided to Job 28 to 30 about true wisdom only coming from God, who appraised, confirmed, and tested it - "The fear of the Lord - that is wisdom and to shun evil is understanding" (Job 28:28). Job also recalls how God blessed and watched over him and his family, but now laments and is mocked by those he considered "lesser" (Job 30:1).

This goes with guidance about untrue notions of what the church calls the Rapture. The enemy helps perpetuate false notions of the Rapture and that it will save the church from the Great Tribulation. Those ideas have been shown to be untrue because Scripture states the Rapture comes AFTER the Tribulation when Christ comes back to destroy the Antichrist.

God's people are to suffer great hardship by the Antichrist during the Tribulation as foretold in Daniel 7:21 and Revelation 13:7, but the church takes statements in Scripture out of context about the Rapture that note how God will "snatch away" His people, using a word often meaning "to grab suddenly from harm" (1 Thessalonians 4:17, Revelation 3:10). Even though the "snatching away" or Rapture is true, we cannot jump to conclusions about how or when it happens. Some words referring to keeping us from the Tribulation can also be translated as keeping us through it. This shows how putting more meaning into God's Word than is stated leads to error.

The truth about the Rapture is shown by including more information. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 says our gathering up to God will be after the Antichrist or "man of lawlessness" is revealed and 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 notes how the dead in Christ will rise first and come with the Lord, then we who are still alive will be caught up in the air. This is the part of the Rapture the church believes will save her from the Tribulation. This sequence of events means the Rapture coincides with the first resurrection of Revelation 20:4-6.

If we continue that logic, then we can see the Rapture occurs after the Great Tribulation because the first resurrection comes after Christ returns to defeat the Antichrist, False Prophet, and nations gathered together against God in Revelation 19:19. After understanding the truth we can see that the church's notion of being saved by the Rapture is an unrealistic expectation.

Like Job, the church will be proven wrong and will need to get her understanding from God (Job 28). God will spare His people during the Tribulation, but it will not be how she expects. It is by righteousness or more specifically, acts of righteousness and keeping from sin that will save us from the worst of the Tribulation (see
10/25/2010 and 1/19/2011). These acts are the Pure Bride's wedding garments (Revelation 19:8), and this protection is given to those seeking the Lord's ultimate goal of making the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem a reality, like the Church of Philadelphia who receives the name of New Jerusalem (Revelation 3:12, 21:2).

They are protected from the Great Tribulation (Revelation 3:10), because of certain righteous acts - the most important of which is to get and keep eternal salvation through Christ. That is the door no one can open or shut in Revelation 3:7-8. It is very important because no one is considered the Lord's unless he is truly saved which means we must be reborn with God's Spirit (John 3:5-7; Romans 8:9).

That happens when we confess our belief in Jesus to someone else "by the mouth" since the terms of the New Covenant are to acknowledge Jesus before men AND not to deny Him before men, otherwise you can be denied in heaven (Matthew 10:32-33; Romans 10:9-10; 1 John 2:23,4:15; Luke 12:9; 2 Timothy 2:12).

The Church of Philadelphia was faithful to uphold those conditions because they kept His Word (the command to confess belief in Jesus and not to deny that belief; Revelation 3:8). They held fast to those terms (Revelation 3:10), which kept the door to eternal salvation open. This door cannot be shut by anyone or anything except for yourself if you deny the Lord in front of others (Revelation 3:7-8; John 10:28-29; Romans 8:35-39).

Even committing sin will not shut the door. The man living in sin by marrying his mother or step-mother could still be saved in eternity if he would not deny the Lord (1 Corinthians 5:1-5). Apostle Paul gives the man over to Satan so that he would die (the "destruction of his flesh") before he could deny the Lord so that he would be saved in eternity in the day of the Lord (
1 Corinthians 5:5), which refers to the first resurrection of believers or the Rapture in Revelation 20:4-5.

Now you can see how important it is to understand the truth in whole. Keeping eternal salvation in Christ by confessing our belief in Him and never denying Him should be our highest priority. Nothing, even threat of death, should have us deny the Lord. Christians around the world are being killed by terrorists and religious extremists because they would rather die than deny the Lord. That is how the Lord wants us to behave. The end of John 12 talks about how believers can be condemned in eternity because they did not keep His Words or command to get eternal salvation by acknowledging Jesus and not deny Him (John 12:42-50).

Having eternal salvation in Christ is not the only thing giving us protection, though. Sin affects us in bad ways and it can have us come to judgment and die prematurely, like for the man Apostle Paul gave over to Satan. The enemy also constantly accuses us of sin (Revelation 12:10) and so brings us judgment and curses when the Lord must judge our sin.

This goes back to the Scripture of Job given today,
"The fear of the Lord - that is wisdom and to shun evil is understanding" (Job 28:28). Shunning evil or keeping from sin and not supporting it are important (Romans 1:32). In Revelation 3:8, to the Church of Philadelphia the Lord said, "I know your deeds." Our righteous deeds or acts or lack of them can affect us (inaction can be sin; 2 Chronicles 19:10, Ezekiel 3:18-21, 33:6,8-9; Proverbs 24:11-12), so to prevent judgment or curses coming on us and our families we need to try and eliminate sin from our lives. Some sins are not obvious and are discussed in this document and other writings on this site.

3/4/2009 Wednesday
I was guided to Zephaniah 3 - "The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing... At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home. I will give you honor and praise among all the people of the earth when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes." (Zephaniah 3:17-20). The rest of Zephaniah 3 is about restoring Jerusalem in the Last Days.

I was also guided to the original Maltese Cross. It defines the knighthood that protects the full truth and goal of perfecting and preparing God's People. This knighthood represents God's anointed servants who promote the truth and correct error in the church to make the perfected Pure Bride or New Jerusalem a reality. Without people to do this, the Bride will continue to fall prey to her own faulty wisdom and the misleading of the enemy and world.

When I looked up the Maltese Cross I found the original cross was a symbol of the Knights of Malta (also called the Knights Hospitaller or the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem). They were knights working in Jerusalem charged with the care and protection of the Holy Land. After Jerusalem was taken by the Muslims, they relocated to the island of Malta, which is where the name comes from. The symbolism in this is that the knighthood nurtures and protects the Pure Bride and God's Kingdom by upholding the truth.

Without this knighthood working to correct the church, she will continue to follow the wrong paths with God and promote incorrect doctrine. The skewing of good doctrine is even worse in religions that promote love and peace over the Gospel of Jesus. These religions are strongholds of the enemy using the misdirection of universal peace, love and spiritual fulfillment without the salvation of Christ. Some even claim to be more enlightened by trumping "divine knowledge or secrets" gotten through spiritual experiences like visions, but reveal themselves to be misled because they also teach that Jesus is not Lord and Savior (1 John 4:1).

The the ways of the Harlot Church is like these New Age and Asian philosophies because she also focuses too much on love, peace and other comforting things from God's Word, whether it is Scripture or live guidance. Focusing too much on love and peace guidance turns us into grasshoppers who are small in our own eyes and so turn away from God's directions like the Israelites did in Numbers 13:33. It goes with the peace and love philosophies making God's people ineffective in His plans because they turn away from anything that doesn't fit their ideas of God and His Kingdom. The Christian who doesn't focus on God's greater goals won't change from the Harlot into the Pure Bride because she views the difficulties of the transition as too great despite being told what God wants.

We may have to go through difficult times and accomplish the near impossible, but God encourages us to prepare the Pure Bride. "The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you..." (Zephaniah 3:17). He calls us together to do this, so we may be fully restored in the Kingdom He planned, "At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home" (Zephaniah 3:20). That Kingdom is the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem because the perfected Bride knows how eternal salvation actually works through Christ. Without truly being saved then you do not belong to God and cannot enter His Kingdom
(see 3/3/2009 for details).

I couldn't understand further until I understood how eternal salvation worked and that our acts brought us to different levels or rooms in God's Kingdom (John 14:2). They are separate notions, so let's not be confused about eternal salvation and God's Kingdom. The church has assumed they are the same thing, but they are not. They are linked to each other because entering God's Kingdom through Christ requires having eternal salvation through the Gospel of Jesus or New Covenant.

The Harlot Church does not prepare to become the Pure Bride because of false beliefs she won't let go of, like how we are saved in the New Covenant by fulfilling its covenant terms. Those false beliefs are often represented by "pets" in guidance. Once the church lets go if these false beliefs and tries to sync with the truth and what God wants, she can ensure she belongs to the Lord and become the Pure Bride.

This also goes with guidance about how love and romance cannot cure everything. It is an unrealistic view of reality that mirrors the unsound doctrines of the popular church because love alone will not fix everything. We have to understand why by leaning on God's understanding instead of our own. We cannot use our own interpretations and reasoning to understand things because our worldly views can make us misinterpret. We need God's mind and view of things to get the correct interpretations.

3/6/2009 Friday
I was guided to Ezekiel 24 where the siege of Jerusalem by Babylon begins and results in Israel's exile. This goes with breaking the Harlot Church's enterprise as we continue in discipline with spiritual warfare by using precision in rightly dividing God's Word whether it is Scripture or live guidance (2 Timothy 2:15). Rightly dividing means interpreting God's guidance with correct context and by connecting the right points together as well as using God's mind instead of our own.

This goes with guidance about the Harlot Church being an "industry" that conducts ministry like a business enterprise, which is not how God wants His church run. He calls the church to rectify this by changing her ways. Some of that involves changing how we treat God's money or the tithe, which will be discussed later.

3/8/2009 Sunday
I was guided to Matthew 1 about the genealogy of Jesus, which highlights an important message about focus and inheriting the royal Kingdom of God through Christ. I was also guided to King Solomon who is in that line from Abraham to Jesus. He symbolizes a parallel focus problem that the Harlot Church has.

Solomon took many foreign wives and perhaps most notably a daughter of the Pharaoh of Egypt (1 Kings 3:1, 11:1). He did these things despite being told by God not to (1 Kings 11:2) because their foreign mentalities would turn him away from God's path. But because of a focus on carnal things, Solomon took a vast harem of foreign wives and they did turn his heart away from God (1 Kings 11:4).

The Harlot Church, too, falls to this focus problem, because she interprets God with a carnal mind and worldly notions of love. It's led her follow "foreign wives" and false kingdom paths like King Solomon did, such as the beliefs that faith in Jesus alone is sufficient to be saved into eternity and that getting into God's Kingdom is only a vague concept of faith and/or walking without sin. She's missing the important details in the mechanics of salvation and the effects of walking righteously within God's laws and commands.

The church has lost sight of this and that
walking in righteous acts towards the goal of becoming a perfected church and people is how we prepare for the Lord's return. These righteous acts include living life and conducting ministry in ways that agree with the Lord.

3/10/2009 Tuesday
I was guided to Isaiah 57 and Zechariah 1 to 5 - "Comfort For The Contrite," which starts, "Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people!" (Isaiah 57:14). The Lord accuses His people of being rebellious and indifferent to His commands and wishes. God's people do not know how to truly fast and work righteousness, but He is showing us how to correct ourselves (Isaiah 58).

In Zechariah 1 Israel is newly freed from bondage and exile. The nations that oppressed her feel secure but will be disciplined and the Lord's new temple is measured out and He Himself will protect and dwell with Her (Zechariah 2). Joshua the High-Priest is saved from Satan (Zechariah 3), the coming of Jesus and the New Covenant are foretold (Zechariah 3:9) and sin is removed from the land (Zechariah 5).

This is linked to
3/1/2009 and started guidance about the numbers 111 and 213. 213 has a promise I did not understand at the time because 13 represents promise from the Lord, but after many months of getting guidance about 213, I finally understood it was a message of building God's new temple of the Pure Bride - a people prepared for the Lord, blessed with the promised union with Christ that stems from God the Holy Trinity (111, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, see "The Meaning of Numbers"; see Chapter 5 in 3rd Compass for an explanation of the Holy Trinity). This rebuilding is meant to remove sin and correct the church so she can regain her purity (Zechariah 5).

We are building up God's people to walk as He wants (Isaiah 57). Those of us who've witnessed the cause and effect of fulfilling or breaking God's laws and covenants can attest to the importance of understanding them (see 10/25/2010). If we understand how they work, such as the New Covenant, we can understand other deeper mechanics of God's Kingdom and walk in them.

The guidance is part of a larger chain of intertwined themes linking to the Great Tribulation and the church's problem of spreading the wrong messages based on incorrect interpretations. This problem makes her blind to God's plans for building His new temple of the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem.

The beginning of Zechariah, like many prophecies, was written with multilayered meaning in mind. It not only prophesies about future events for the people at the time (past for us), but also prophesies farther into our time and future during the Last Days now (see 12/14/2011 for more about God's fingerprint of multilayered prophecy).

The parallels in Zechariah are easy to see when you understand the picture the church is in today. She is in "bondage" like Israel was for disobedience, but instead of being literally held captive, she is being changed and refined as she goes through the Great Tribulation (see 1/28/2009). This path through hardship makes the church face the truth that she needs to change and go farther with God than she has, which is to move closer towards becoming the Pure Bride.
We can see that clearly in Zechariah 2:3 where God says, "Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the great number of men and livestock in it. And I Myself will be a wall of fire around it... and I will be its glory within." This goes with descriptions of New Jerusalem in Revelation 21, which also states She is God's Bride wearing Her wedding garments, which represent Her righteous acts. She has no walls because She is the people "married" with God. She is not a physical, worldly city. And She is protected by God Himself ("I Myself will be a wall of fire around it") because She earns the protection by walking righteous with God.

However, the church is not seeing these connections and instead makes the wrong conclusions about Scripture and God's live guidance. She is teaching in error and overemphasizing a physical relationship with God. The woman in the basket of Zechariah 5:7 symbolizes this sin as well as others. God will take them away, but the church must acknowledge His directions for doing it in His live guidance and not just in Scripture.

The only way the church can break out of her cycle of breaking God's commands and covenants is to acknowledge the direction He gives to anointed servants who were taught to understand more of the truth through live guidance, such as given in this document. Acknowledging God's live guidance is important. We are supposed to live on every Word of His and not just Scripture (Deuteronomy 8:3). If the church ignores God's live guidance, she will continue to wander endless paths that do not end up where He has planned.

3/15/2009 Sunday
I was guided again to John 7 about drinking from His Spirit and people's misconceptions about Scripture leading them astray (see 2/28/2009). It goes with walking with God to destroy the misleading of the enemy through proper teaching and sowing of the correct and unskewed truth. The correct knowledge nurtures God's kingdom so that misconceptions about God and His Kingdom can be destroyed and corrected.

The church has a common misconception that simply having eternal salvation is sufficient to be a full participant in God's Kingdom. Having eternal salvation is only the starting point and prerequisite. To be a complete participant in God's Kingdom, we also need to
follow live guidance from God and go farther into those righteous acts that perfect the Bride.

We need industrial strength, no nonsense, military grade methods from different angles of attack to get rid of the enemy. We can't mess around with this, because the enemy has a tight hold on the church and misleads her to stay in harlotry. Home grade tactics will not affect how the enemy perpetuates false, unsound doctrine. This means we need to be firm with and hold to truths about how God, His Kingdom and spiritual warfare work (see 7/28/2009).

3/22/2009 Sunday
I was water baptized by submersion today and guided to Luke 1 about witnessing and recording and the coming of John the Baptist. Water baptism is a righteous act that every person in the church should go through after they've attained eternal salvation through Christ. It was something I did not want to do because of my introverted nature, but after getting guidance to have it done, I scheduled for it.

The importance of water baptism is noted by Jesus in Matthew 3:15 where He asked John the Baptist to do it for Him, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Jesus insisted on doing it despite John's hesitation to show that even though it is not a requirement, it is a righteous act that shows our desire and commitment to God, "the pledge of a good conscience toward [Him]" (1 Peter 3:21). This act of witnessing our faith in Christ is considered righteous because of the outward display of belief in Jesus. It parallels the covenant terms for eternal salvation, which require confession of belief in Jesus to another person. Luke 1 is referenced with this guidance to go with that witnessing theme.

Another important note about water baptism is that as long as someone, even a child for instance, understands their belief in Jesus as resurrected Lord and Savior and wish to follow Him, they can go through water baptism. Some churches restrict water baptism to people of a certain age or use other criteria to determine if they can go through the ritual, however, water baptism should not be restricted by any means whatsoever. It is not the church's responsibility to control the rights of individuals who wish to be water baptized. The church only needs to confirm that the individual understands their belief in Jesus and why they want to be water baptized (to express commitment or righteousness to Christ).

The importance of water baptism should not be exaggerated to be a requirement for eternal salvation, though. It is a separate act from attaining eternal salvation and does not grant eternal salvation. Understanding that is a part of being an "approved workman" in handling God's Word correctly by using correct context and proper interpretation (2 Timothy 2:15, see 1/19/2011).

3/23/2009 Monday
I was guided to Joel 2 - "The Day of the Lord" about the Last Days and River of Life. Joel 2:13 in this guidance started the 213 part of the 213 Promise guidance because I noticed 2:13 repeating like 1:11 did before
(see 3/10/2009).

This Scripture is where the "The Day of the Lord" is written, which prophesies about events of the Last Days.
It goes together with the 213 Promise (the promised return of Christ) and the Tribulation as part of the events of the Last Days (Joel 2). The church will mature by successfully going through the hardships of the Tribulation as she is directed by God and protected by her righteous acts (see 3/3/2009).

Joel 2:28 prophesies the River of Life and all the prophetic things people will experience in these days, "And afterward, I will pour my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. I will show wonders in the heavens and on earth, blood and fire and bellows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said among the survivors whom the Lord calls."

Exciting images and prophetic validation are awe inspiring, but the focus on shocking information has us miss the bigger picture. We overlook the 213 Promise that calls us into change and prepare for Christ's return. God wants us to focus on that instead of all the traumatic events happening during the Tribulation. It goes with other guidance about the church's focus problems preventing her from seeing the truth (see 3/10/2009, 12/20/2010, 1/19/2011, 8/10/2011, 10/13/2011), so the Lord is noting how the church is also focused on the wrong things. She needs to refocus on moving towards becoming the Pure Bride by moving out of sin and towards the perfected Bride.

4/21/2009 Tuesday
I was guided to Proverbs 26, which notes, "Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest" (Proverbs 26:2).
It means there is always a reason for a curse or judgment, which is what a curse is - judgment for sin. Curses coming from breaking God's laws and commands is important to understand, however, hardship may not be a curse for sin, but testing and trials to refine and mature us, like Job went through or noted in Romans 5:3-4, and to have us share in Christ's sufferings (Romans 8:17; Philippians 3:10) as well as that of our brethren (Romans 8:17; 2 Corinthians 1:3-7,4:8-14,6:4-10; 1 Peter 4:12-19; Colossians 1:24).

4/27/2009 Monday
I was guided to John 21 where the section titled "Jesus Reinstates Peter" begins (see 1/19/2011). This guidance begins a chain pointing out the full meaning of the Scripture that talks about Peter denying Jesus (Matthew 26:34,26:69-75; Mark 14:30,14:66-72; Luke 22:34,22:54-62; John 13:38,18:15-18,18:25-27) and Peter's later reinstatement (John 21:15). It gives further Scriptural support for the true mechanics of eternal salvation. See 1/19/2011 for the final summary.

5/2/2009 Saturday
I was guided to Ecclesiastes 4 - "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken".

It emphasizes how people strengthen each other. However, it is not for companionship or safety that this guidance was given. God is noting how the spiritual guidance of His anointed servants reinforce each other by intertwining, not just people and spiritual guidance, but events and physical things that show God's fingerprint of authenticity. See
5/4/2010, 11/23/2010, 12/20/2010, 8/10/2011, 10/28/2011 and 12/14/2011 for further examples and insight showing this fingerprint. When the details are examined, it is easy to see that only God could have woven so many separate elements together to speak the truth.

However, we must also understand that the enemy can also orchestrate things. They can give many different people the same thoughts, even at the same time over thousands of miles, to try and get them to do things that go against God's plans. Satan tried to prevent Paul and others from returning to Thessalonica (1 Thessalonians 2:18). How Satan did that is not known, but some ministries today have experienced person after person coming to them to oppose something God wanted them to do. Demons give and manipulate peoples' thoughts and feelings, so that is one way the enemy tries to work against us.

Demons, like the Python spirit of Acts 16:16, can prophesy and give false guidance that appears to be from God because it predicts future events. They can give false guidance, such as visions, words, dreams, etc. that can be misconstrued to be from God or may even seem to go with true guidance from God, but this false guidance must be identified and dismissed. It is important to examine and test things closely, especially spiritual guidance, because the enemy can counterfeit nearly any type of spiritual guidance, power or gift (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21; 2 Thessalonians 2:9).

5/14/2009 Thursday
I was guided to Isaiah 27 about slaying Leviathan, which symbolizes Python, and God's power coming, which symbolizes the Great Tribulation, and moving God's people into safety by His call to listen to His directions.

This is telling us to notice the times we are in and how to handle them. We start in Isaiah 27, where it says, "In that day, the Lord will punish with His sword, His fierce, great and powerful sword, Leviathan the gliding serpent, Leviathan the coiling serpent; He will slay the monster of the sea."
This refers to how God is moving to rid the church of the enemy's influence on her. One of the ways He is doing this is by correcting knowledge that the church has wrong about the truth, Scripture, the enemy, and so on. Having false beliefs or untruth is a hook Python and other bad spirits have, so we need to replace false beliefs with the truth.

The Great Tribulation coming by God's power links to Isaiah 28:2 where it states, "See, the Lord has One who is powerful and strong. Like a hailstorm and a destructive wind, like a driving rain and a flooding downpour, He will throw it forcefully to the ground." This goes with other guidance announcing that the times of the Tribulation have arrived. This reality means there are things the church needs to do, but it is not the trauma or hardship of the times that we need to focus on.

Our focus should be on moving towards becoming the Pure Bride by moving out of sin and conducting our lives and ministries righteously. However, the church is letting that fall away because of misconceptions. One is that the church thinks she does not need to do anything to prepare for God's wedding plans when He returns. They're a very important part of this age (Matthew 22:1-22:14, Revelation 19:7-19:8), but God is noting here that action on our parts is required to be perfected because the Bride's (Church's) wedding garments are righteous acts (Revelation 19:8).The church prepares for her own wedding - the Wedding of the Lamb.

The process of becoming the Pure Bride follows that of a traditional Jewish betrothal and wedding. One of the "before" acts the Bride must perform is to cleanse herself before the ceremony. This is the same cleansing referred to in Revelation 19:7, "His Bride has made herself ready," which says she (we the church) did it ourselves. However, most of the church has not prepared herself because Scripture doesn't say how to do this.

But we have a clue in the next verse, "Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear. (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints.)" Now we see our clean wedding gown is the "righteous acts of the saints," but who are the "saints?" The Biblical definition of a saint is simply anyone who believes or one of God's people. That's all of us, the Bride herself, so it's our acts that must be considered righteous to make us ready for marriage.

But what are those acts? They involve getting rid of sin and understanding how we are truly saved. How can the Bride participate in her wedding if she does not truly belong to Christ? We must be reborn with God's Spirit to be in His Kingdom (John 3:3-7; Romans 8:9; see also 3/3/2009) and that only happens after we confess our belief in Jesus to another person, because faith is only our justification or righteousness for being saved (Romans 10:10). But it is "by the mouth" that we are actually saved, which refers to giving our confession of faith to someone, such as by telling them, "Jesus is Lord" (Romans 10:9-10).

This demonstrates the mechanics of salvation and goes with Matthew 10:32-33, 1 John 4:15 and 1 John 2:23, which state the terms for the New Covenant - acknowledge Jesus (confess our belief in Him) to other people AND do not deny that faith to other people. Denying your faith in the Lord to others is how we actually lose our eternal salvation. It is not through sin alone, though sin can affect us so badly that we end up denying the Lord (see also 3/3/2009).

Once someone sees our confession of belief in Jesus then we are reborn and sealed with the Holy Spirit and therefore belong to Christ in His Kingdom. It allows us to have God's Mind through His Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:16) and to bare fruits of the Spirit as wells as receive gifts of the Kingdom that cannot be given unless you belong to the Kingdom.

Getting and keeping eternal salvation are righteous acts we need to do to become the Bride. Other righteous acts will be shown later.

6/9/2009 Tuesday
I was guided to John 7:33 again about drinking from His Spirit and people's misconceptions about Scripture leading them astray (see 2/28/2009). There is a misconception that today's church is healthy and vibrant, but she isn't. The signs are not obvious, so she doesn't see the shape she's in or what she's doing is bad. Because of this she thinks she is doing things correctly since she has many signs of prosperity - wealth, influence, large congregations, spiritual gifts, and members full of His Spirit. However, those measures are man's, not God's. The church cannot see what she is doing wrong.

The only way the church can see the truth is to pay attention to what God gives to His anointed servants who have correctly learned about the truth. We are sowing the seeds of truth (3/15/2009), but the church needs to listen and accept it if she is to understand her situation.

6/25/2009 Thursday
I was guided to Jeremiah 27 where Jeremiah tells the king, priests and people not to listen to prophets who say everything is safe and that Babylon will not take them. The king of Judah is told to submit to Babylon.

The prophets and spiritualists who God did not send spoke lies, which goes with how the church and its leaders are also speaking the wrong messages from false guidance or misinterpreting valid guidance. The world is flooded with the wrong messages from the church and enthusiastic believers, but unfortunately there are religious spirits, like Python, that make people overly religious and jump to the wrong conclusions about Scripture and guidance, and then have them constantly spread bad messages or lies.

People should have a good understanding of Scripture and guidance before they run with things or share things from others. We are called to be approved workman for the Lord who understand and use God's Word correctly (2 Timothy 2:15). We cannot do that if we haven't studied Scripture and guidance enough, and especially we do not know how the enemy can interfere with valid guidance and create false guidance.

Studying and recording false guidance or bad teaching is not something I recommend, though, because it can give the enemy hooks in you. A ministry was told by God to erase false guidance from the enemy, which helped deliver them and a 3rd party from demonic influences. I got guidance myself to not study atheist material when I was trying to see how to combat their arguments. I also do not believe the Lord wants us to read or study material from demons, such as Islam's Koran/Qur'an, other Christian writings from sources that do not believe Jesus is the true Son of God and Messiah, and even some translations of Bibles because their interpretations are faulty and skew God's Word too much (see Choosing a Bible for help in selecting good Bibles).

False guidance also includes things like prophecies from Nostradamus, fortune tellers, astrologers and other seers who use divination and so likely get their prophecies from prophesying spirits, like Python. Things that predict the future can be very interesting but like using a Ouija board invites demons, so can believing in and using the products of divination, sorcery and such. We should be inquiring directly of God and not go to mediums, fortune tellers and such (Isaiah 8:19). I would even avoid games to get anything about the future even though it seems like harmless fun, it can still be divination, such as using tarot cards and fortune telling machines or kiosks. Getting information through demons is not worth the risk of having them infect you and your life. They can be very hard to get rid of, so it is better to avoid things that demons can hook into you from.

False guidance may also be "validated" from a God-given test, like in Deuteronomy 13:1-4 where God notes if a sign or wonder confirms to follow other gods then the guidance should be rejected. So if we do not know enough, how can we reject bad interpretations and teaching? Search the Scriptures for back up on guidance like the Bereans did in Acts 17:11. Our Bibles are a foundation for the truth we believe, so use them, but also be aware there are Bibles that have bad interpretations that we should not use (see Choosing A Bible). We also cannot fully understand everything in Scripture without understanding given by God through His Mind/Spirit, so we need to be sure we are truly saved or reborn with God's Spirit and work with people who also confess belief in Jesus.

Even having God's Spirit and working with His true servants can lead to error if we or they simply follow things blindly, though, so if guidance is given that urges sin or contradicts authenticated Scripture then the guidance must be rejected. However, we cannot dismiss everything from people or ministries that give bad guidance because God may have given them valid guidance (1 Thessalonians 5:19-22). We should keep their guidance at a distance and evaluate it.

We may also not understand the correct meaning of Scripture and other guidance so that is another reason we should examine things closer. This is very difficult to work through, so we need to be knowledgeable about Scripture and spiritual things and become approved workman so we can evaluate guidance and teaching.

Being enthusiastic about the Lord and His guidance is commendable, but the enemy also uses peoples' ignorance to spread lies and bad teaching. Muhammad, the found of Islam, blindly followed and believed the demon claiming to be from God. Other false teachers and prophets do the same, so if you are called to teach or minister for the Lord, then be sure to examine things very closely. Simply praying on things is not enough because the enemy can interfere with your thoughts and guidance if they have hooks in you because of false beliefs or sin. Demons can even prevent you from understanding Scripture or guidance correctly so deliverance from them may be necessary for you to serve the Lord correctly.

There are times when God just wants us to do something without question, but when it comes to teaching and defining doctrine we should evaluate and test thoroughly (1 Thessalonians 5:20; 1 John 4:1). There are many false teachers, false prophets, false christs and even true servants of the Lord can be deceived by the enemy, so we should not simply follow blindly (Matthew 24:24).

2009 July, August, September 2/13/2011 8:37 PM
7/7/2009 Tuesday
I was guided to 2 Chronicles 35 where God gives Neco, king of Egypt, instruction to do His will. King Neco was not a prophet or part of the Holy Nation of Israel, yet he was chosen to do something for God. This refers to how God uses people outside the "typical" church, like myself, to accomplish His goals. I was a foreigner to Christ when I first started getting guidance from God. It led me to believe and then change my life to serve the Lord (see Chapter 3, 3rd Compass).

We should never judge anyone because of their background or apparent level of experience, and should evaluate what they say. It is important for the church to listen to all of God's servants because He does not give everything to everyone, but chooses people for certain roles so the entire Body of His church can function properly.

We are also supposed to live on every Word from God (Deuteronomy 8:3; Matthew 4:4), including His live guidance, which can be given to anyone. They don't have to be a minister, but because of the large amount of false teachers/prophets, etc. and the enemy can easily influence true servants of the Lord, we must carefully evaluate anything that is said to be God-given guidance (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21).

Without listening to what God gives through atypical people, the church cannot function as God intends and she ends up falling to error and promoting the wrong things, which hurts her in the end. Things like understanding His laws and covenants (Hebrews 7:9) are foundations for His Kingdom that need to be taught correctly for the church to come out of many wrong paths she is committed to.

However, the church has another problem preventing her from changing. It goes with guidance about how strawberries symbolize stubborn hearts (see 9/2/2009). It's no coincidence that real strawberries look like biological hearts. God uses this symbolism to refer to how people do not want to let go of their ways, like man-made traditions the church doesn't want to change or get rid of.

Man-made traditions, like decorating Christmas trees and giving gifts, should not be the focus of holidays meant to edify God or what His has done. These traditions draw attention away from God and Christ. Because of the focus on decorated trees, gifts, Pascha/Easter eggs and candy, etc., much of the world ignores the true purpose of these holidays. The church must get rid of her stubborn heart so that she can throw away her old ways and bad focuses and accept the full truth.

7/8/2009 Wednesday
I was guided to Daniel 9 - The Seventy Sevens, "...to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy." (Daniel 9:24).
This goes with guidance about the fairytale and showmanship mindsets commonly found in the church today. They lead people to believe in and follow false things (to run after fairytales), while showmanship is the wrong way to present God's guidance or teaching. We should be teaching and witnessing without calling too much attention to ourselves or generating hype. Jesus did not teach that way, and we are supposed to emulate His example of how to conduct life.

The fairytale mindset
happens when people read Scripture or get spiritual guidance that sparks personal interest or makes us feel good. It is a big problem because it can create tunnel vision people get lost in when they lose sight of the bigger picture. An example is how the church often promotes how much God loves us but then forgets faith alone is not enough to save us and that we get and keep eternal salvation by confessing our belief and not denying the Lord (see 3/3/2009).

Showmanship isn't just a problem when information is hyped. It also leads people to share guidance too quickly that is incomplete or misinterpreted, which ends up becoming bad teaching or even false prophecy.

The church needs to remove wrong attitudes and unsound doctrine, and conduct ministry
in ways that God approves of, which also goes with the church running ministry like a business enterprise instead of how God wants His church run (see 3/6/2009).

7/24/2009 Friday
I was guided to Zechariah 13 and 14 about the return of Christ, "The Lord Comes and Reigns". This Scripture talks about how there will be cleansing and refinement of God's people before He comes back to reign. Prophecy is specifically addressed in chapter 13.
The roles of prophets have not changed since Christ came and the church must continue to listen to any servants He anointed to speak for Him. Do not ignore or treat prophecy with contempt, but test and examine everything closely (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21), because it is through God's live guidance that He leads us to be cleansed of sin and false beliefs and refines us into the Pure Bride. The Lord's Bride needs to prepare herself (be cleansed and refined) for His return so that she can reign with Him correctly.

7/27/2009 Monday
I was guided to 2 Kings 9 where Jezebel and the whole house of Ahab are killed here, as well as all ministers of Baal (ministers of idolatry). Earlier at the beginning of chapter 9, Jehu is anointed king and a trumpet is blown (2 Kings 9:13). This also symbolizes a call to assemble and prepare to become the Pure Bride by changing and getting rid of sin (see 5/14/2009).

It is a call to fight rebellion against God's wishes, which is what the rest of 2 Kings 9 refers to. Jezebel is a symbol of rebellion against God, and in the Scripture here, she is killed along with everyone in Ahab's house, which notes that being complacent about fighting rebellion, like Ahab and his house were, can be just as bad as acting in complete rebellion against God. Jehu's appointment is noted here to symbolize a change in leadership that will lead God's people where He wants. This refers to God anointing me and other leaders to move the church into the destiny He has planned.

Listening to God's directions that were properly understood by His anointed servants and committing to making the Pure Bride real shows our heart and love for Him as we faithfully deliver His wishes despite our fears and doubts.

I was also guided to Ezekiel 24 again, which goes with the Tribulation being here now (see 1/28/2009 and 3/3/2009). That is important to acknowledge because it is time to prepare for God's return (Revelation 19:7), which is the focal point He wants His people to focus on despite all the other events in this time.

7/28/2009 Tuesday
I had a dream where I was in a MMA (mixed martial arts) fight with an opponent that did nothing but take a beating and continue to stand strong. When the fight was over it was declared a draw and announced we had to do it over again. I couldn't believe it. The ten minute fight felt like it took hours and I was drained and did not want to repeat it.

This dream refers to spiritual warfare and how it is useless to fight the enemy without first binding the strongman (Mark 3:27), otherwise the struggle will go on indefinitely. Different spirits require different ways to bind or render the spirit powerless. This usually has to do with getting rid of sin and false beliefs because they give the enemy hooks into us. Simply casting a spirit out will only be temporary deliverance if its hooks are not also removed (Matthew 12:43-12:45). This is because they have legal right to come back if we persist in sin. That is why Jesus told the crippled man to "stop sinning or something worse may happen to you" after He healed him in John 5:14.

It can also turn out worse for someone after a spirit is cast out and there is no change in the victim's continued sin or false beliefs, because the demon will come back with more and worse demons (Luke 11:24-26). The reference in Luke 11:25 to the demon coming back and finding things "swept and put in order" refer to how it finds the person continues to have hooks for it to afflict the person again. Things are "swept and put in order" for the spirit to do so, and worse, it brings other demons that hook into the person through other sins or false beliefs he has (Luke 11:26). This makes it clear that we need to get rid of sin for us to be unaccuseable, which will make the enemy unable to attack us.

7/30/2009 Thursday
I was guided to 1 Timothy 4 - "Command and teach these things. Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of the elders laid their hands on you. Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers."

1 Timothy 4:11 says we are to "command and teach" correct doctrine and persevere in them, which refers to the correct truth and principles. The Scripture also emphasizes that the leadership of young or new Christians, like Timothy, is not to be ignored. Many elders in the church discard spiritual things given to new Christians because they don't think an "unlearned" Christian should give counsel. We must remember, though, we can be in error or have false beliefs no matter how long we've believed, how educated we are, or how much experience we think we have. Learning from the wrong things or from the wrong sources has given the church a lot of errors in understanding Scripture and doctrine.

1 Timothy 4 also notes how Timothy was anointed by a prophetic message and laying on of hands. It is a mark of people who are truly anointed by God. In my case, this was fulfilled through prophetic messages that brought me to meet with another ministry where they laid their hands on me during my visit. My anointment was also validated by another event where the purpose of my anointment was made clear (see 3/5/2010). These events occurred outside of my control and through external parties.

Though it is my primary duty to teach the truth, the effort to spread the truth is for the entire church to embrace and uphold. It is the church's responsibility to recognize truly anointed servants and accept the things they were given through spiritual guidance. Without doing this, the church cannot function as God intends or become His Pure Bride because parts of the church Body are not listening to Him.

I was guided to Lamentations 1 where God's people are in sorrow for being exiled because of breaking God's laws and commands. Their sin was exposed
. Today the church will go through difficult and sorrowful times as well. The Harlot Church will be exposed and her incorrect paths and sin will be made apparent.

8/12/2009 Wednesday
I was guided to Jeremiah 9 and 10 where the Lord notes His people follow the "stubbornness of their hearts" instead of His commands. Judgment is coming for those with "uncircumcised hearts," even for God's people because they've broken His laws and commands. God also reminds His people, "Do not learn the ways of the nations or be terrified by signs in the sky..." (Jeremiah 10:2).

This also links to
3/10/2009 and 12/20/2010
about how the church has false beliefs made by faulty interpretations, ignores God's guidance, and continues to follow her own ways. The guidance also notes how the times of the Tribulation are being fulfilled now (see 12/20/2010), but like the given Scripture states, we are not to be "terrified by signs in the sky" (Jeremiah 10:2).

This is a time when all the nations and people of the world need to pay more attention to God and His promise of eternal salvation because of what's happening around the world (Jeremiah 9). But the church, especially, needs to pay careful attention to the guidance God gives to anointed servants who have learned correctly.

The proper focus for God's people is to listen to what He gives through His Spirit, not Tribulation events, "signs in the sky" (Jeremiah 10:2), or the interpretations of those who are not truly anointed servants. God is giving His Kingdom plans through the guidance He gives to servants anointed to lead the rest of the church, so it is important for her to listen closely and align with God's wishes.

9/2/2009 Wednesday
I was guided to Psalm 81 about the Lord delivering His people out of Egypt, but they often would not listen to His ways and so He left them to "their stubborn hearts". If His people would listen to what God tells them, they would be delivered completely instead of being left to their own devices (Psalm 81:12-81:16).

This links to the symbolism of strawberries on
7/7/2009. Strawberries symbolize the "stubborn hearts" of God's people (Psalm 81:12) who won't let go of their ways and traditions.

The church needs to let go of her way of doing things and take up God's ways. However, the church often does not want to listen or examine guidance further, even though He delivered them from bondage (Psalm 81:11). This refers to the church not wanting to listen to God's wishes for her to prepare for His return even though He delivered them through Christ from the bondage of needing to fulfill law perfectly.

If the church would listen to God's live guidance, she would be delivered from the results of being left to her own devices (Psalm 81:13-81:14). This refers to changing her ways so she follows God better and understands sin, law and covenant, so the results of her sin would no longer affect her.

10/1/2009 Thursday
I was guided to Titus 2:13 - "...while we wait for the blessed hope - the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ...". This verse goes with the 111 and 213 guidance that have to do with the return of Christ to complete His Marriage at the end of this age (see
3/10/2009 and 3/23/2009). The verse number aligning with the meaning of 213 (see 3/23/2009) gives another example of God's fingerprint of authenticity and how Scripture is truly God-breathed exactly as He intended (see also 7/7/2010 and 7/30/2010).

10/17/2009 Saturday
I was guided to Jeremiah 6 where Jerusalem is under siege because of disobedience. "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." (Jeremiah 6:16).

This notes how God's people are at a crossroads today as well, and that God is telling her which direction to take - back towards the paths of obeying God's laws and commands. He asks us to take the path to prepare for His return by getting rid of sin and the wrong ways, so that we will find rest.

Jewish author, Amos Oz, stated the Hebrew for "forward", "kadima" comes from "kedeem," which refers to ancient times, so Jews "look forward to the past" in the language. The church as well as the Jews should literally do that and look back towards walking within God's laws and commands so that judgment and curses would not come to them.

11/6/2009 Friday
I was guided to Haggai 1 - "A Call to Build the House of the Lord". This goes with other guidance about the true mechanics of eternal salvation (see 12/8/2010). Salvation in Christ is not based on faith alone, but also requires a confession of belief in Jesus to another person (see 3/3/2009 and The True Gospel).

The church incorrectly interprets Scripture, and consequently has failed to understand the true mechanics of eternal salvation because she uses her varying points of view to interpret Scripture. However, when all the relevant pieces of information are included it is easier to see how the church has erred.

God's Word cannot be understood correctly without knowing all the context surrounding it, so it is important to get God's interpretation by having all the needed pieces of information or guidance connected properly. Without doing this, the church will continue to get the wrong interpretations that do not reflect the truth.

Haggai 1 goes with this because building God's Church must start with each individual getting eternal salvation by fulfilling its covenant terms (see 5/14/2009). No one can be in His Kingdom without being reborn with God's Spirit (John 3:3-7), which happens by confessing belief in Jesus to another person (Matthew 10:32, 1 John 4:15; Romans 10:9-10). We do not truly belong to the Lord unless we have His Spirit in this way (Romans 8:9).

Jesus Himself couldn't even be in the Kingdom without fulfilling those covenant terms, because all men, even Jesus, must fulfill the terms for the New Covenant. John 3:13 notes this by saying, "No man hath ascended up to heaven, but He that came down from heaven (Jesus was the eternal Christ in heaven before He was born or conceived as a man, so He 'came down from heaven'), even the Son of Man... (even Jesus, as a human man, could not belong to the Kingdom or 'ascend to heaven' unless He too fulfilled the terms for the New Covenant, which He did by confessing His kingship and deity to people in the New Testament (Matthew 16:15-20,27:11; Mark 15:2,8:29-30; Luke 9:20-21,23:3; John 8:54-58,18:33-37))." (KJV)

12/10/2009 Thursday
I got guidance with popular musicians and how they relate to the Harlot Church. They are similar because they focus on music that evokes emotion and makes us feel good. They also use gorgeous, showy concert productions, which are great for the music industry and making money, but not for God's church. We should be focusing wholly on God when we worship and not on how the music makes us feel or on musicians, singers or decorations on the stage.

God is making a parallel to the mentality of the contemporary church, who overemphasizes unsound doctrine based on exaggerations of love and passionate worship, and uses showy presentation and merchandising to make a profit. God calls her the Harlot Church because she promotes herself in the wrong ways, moves the focus to herself instead of God, and makes money in the wrong ways from her role as His representative. This prevents the church from representing God as He wishes and makes her dismiss God's ways because she is focused on promoting her own agenda.

Some people take offense to the "harlot" or "prostitute" term, but one must realize that God is pointing to the institution of the Harlot. He is not pointing fingers at individuals or condemning the church, but trying to tell His people as a whole to change. This change is more important than the church realizes because she does not fully understand sin and the mechanics of God's laws and covenants. When she breaks His laws it allows the church to be cursed with all kinds of hardship that bring needless suffering to His people.

In order to properly understand God, the church needs to stop listening to her gut, like dismissing calls to change because she doesn't like the Harlot term or other truths that make her uncomfortable. God can only be understood through Himself (His Spirit, 1 Corinthians 2:11), so without getting the correct interpretations from God, the church will continue to stumble along in misinterpretations (see 3/15/2009).

Without rightly dividing or correctly handling guidance and letting God interpret the Scripture, visions, Words and other things given by Him can have any number of interpretations, most of which would be completely wrong. Even so, the church tries to run with the wrong interpretations just the same as the rest of the world does.

This is similar to how the world embraces Darwinian Evolution. The church relies on her own mind and logic, like the secular world does, to understand reality, making conclusions only from what they see and know, like the world has accepted Evolution to explain life and our existence. So like the secular world, the church falls to error because the things she doesn't know or have overlooked are critical pieces to understand the entire picture.

Evolution makes great sense from a macroscopic viewpoint. After all, there is a lot of physical evidence supporting it. Likewise, the church's interpretations of Scripture also make great sense... that is, until you look closely at the details. The premises of Evolution fall apart when you zoom into the details of how life and biology work. Their mechanics simply cannot be fueled by random or natural selection no matter how much time you give them (see 3rd Compass, Chapters 2 and 5).

The church's premises for her wrong versions of salvation and other doctrine also fall apart when you look closely at the details. God left clues for them in Scripture and live guidance, but no one can connect the dots properly using their mind. The enemy also makes proper interpretation difficult by forcing bad interpretations, having us jump to the wrong conclusions, and/or making us blind to critical information that is needed to understand the full picture.

I've seen Christians do this when they promote homosexuality is ok because they misconstrue love in Scripture and misinterpret or omit other information in the Bible that says homosexual acts are still a sin today. Enthusiastic support for homosexuality, like passing laws to make gay marriage legal is also a sin (Romans 1:32). It is one reason why our nations are coming to judgment (see 2/23/2016).

3/5/2010 Friday
After a friend's Bible Study this morning, a woman who was not involved in the study was moved to pray for me. I accepted and as she started, I felt the energy of the Spirit come upon us. She spoke in tongues intermittently, and said, "Do not doubt the Word given to you" and other things to encourage me to continue in my duty as a minister, such as giving me the power to break chains through the witness of testimony and having the Full Armor of God. The Spirit also said through her, "I anoint your lips to speak Truth." There was so much energy during this, I could tell it was hard for her to keep praying. Afterwards, she said she hoped I understood what was said because she didn't, which points to the Spirit speaking through her. I'd never met her before, so she couldn't know what was going on in my life.

This happened at a time when I was seriously doubting the guidance I got and my role as a prophet, so it was given to me as encouragement and to ensure me that I was anointed as a prophet. I had gotten guidance about "not doubting the Word" given to me, but I had always been reluctant to share my anointment as a prophet publicly. However,
now I understand that it is important to assume our God given roles in full (see 4/13/2011).

2010 April, May, June 2/13/2011 8:44 PM
4/13/2010 Tuesday
I got guidance about how painting with
wide strokes is a problem the church needs to correct. It goes with how the church paints (interprets and teaches) God and the truth with overly broad strokes, which misconstrues the truth if important details are omitted (see 5/14/2009).

5/4/2010 Tuesday
I was guided to 1 Corinthians 13 about "Love" and verse 13:13, "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

The Scripture revealed the meaning of the numbers 5, 4, and 2, which I was called to take notice of. When the Scripture was given, I realized the two thirteens of 1 Corinthians 13:13 was meant to link to previous guidance about the number 213 or two-thirteen related to the 213 Promise, which was later shown to represent the great promise of love and blessing in preparing for the return of Christ by making the Pure Bride a reality. This precise weaving of Scripture related to the numbers is a clue to how exact God is (see 7/7/2010 for another example of Scripture lining up with the meaning of numbers).

I also saw that the meanings of the numbers five, four and two aligned with "faith, hope and love" in 1 Corinthians 13:13, because I was given the numbers in that sequence. Five means Faith, Four means Hope, and Two means Love (see The Meaning of Numbers).

This also goes with guidance about "pets," which symbolize false beliefs that we don't want to let go of, just like the pet animals we love to keep. This was pointing out a false belief related to the Scripture and the world's idea of Love. This Scripture, which emphasizes Love, and others like it, such as John 3:16, are extremely popular, but they are also overused and misconstrued because of the world's fondness for love, especially romantic notions of love.

God is pointing out that misconceptions about Love are very dangerous, because they blind us to the full truth. The "pet" or false belief here was shown to be that "love" supersedes everything else. However, when the knowledge of how God's Kingdom is built on His laws and commands and that the rules they define are the foundation for everything else, we can see how dangerous it is to overemphasize love.

The true mechanics of eternal salvation make this obvious, because its covenant terms must be fulfilled for us to be saved eternally. Love for God or His love for us do not change how those mechanics work. Scripture makes this clear because believers are condemned to eternal death if they do not adhere to the terms of eternal salvation, even if they have faith in Jesus (John 12:42-12:50, see SPARKED for details). Faith and love are simply not enough to guarantee our eternal salvation, so it's easy to see why the world's overemphasis on the incomplete picture creates more harm than good.

Another troublesome issue brought to light here is that of translation of Scripture. The church's assumption that translation is not a large problem is also a "pet" of the church. This is seen in the Scripture of 1 Corinthians 13 when the word "charity" is used instead of "love" in many older translations. There is a reason that word is used, and in many ways it is more accurate than "love" because of modern notions of love overemphasizing its romantic quality. Unfortunately, the constant changing meaning of words is an issue in understanding Scripture, so there may no longer be any single word today that accurately describes what God means by "charity" and "love" in this Scripture.

These problems are important because God has used many translations of the Bible in spiritual guidance, sometimes giving guidance referring to a particular translation because it conveys His thoughts as they were meant to be understood better. This makes it obvious there is no "favorite" version and that the translations of men may not properly convey what God means in the Words of Scripture. Some errors of translation and interpretation are so bad that they actually prevent people from seeing the truth.

6/22/2010 Tuesday
I got more guidance about showmanship, which goes with rushing and jumping to conclusions about spiritual guidance (see 3/1/2009 and 10/13/2011). A showman does things with flare to call attention to himself, and our misconceptions, ignorance and immaturity prevent us from understanding the truth if we do not have all the information needed to understand a piece of guidance, so we should not rush in sharing guidance publicly until it is tested to be truly from the Lord and understood fully.

Another aspect of showmanship is to call attention to oneself instead of God. Some preachers or worship leaders may do this with overly flashy presentation. When flare is added to God's instruction, whether it is in Scripture or live guidance, our focus can shift to the showy elements of a presentation instead of the true message or purpose.

When we focus on the the showman or flashy presentation, it makes it harder to discern the details that God wants conveyed. The details can blur out because overemphasis on dramatic or emotional things send the wrong message about God's Kingdom and how it works. As a result, the flashy strokes of a showman mislead the church into focusing on the wrong things, which often also prevents people from accepting the full truth.

This showmanship theme goes with guidance about leaving behind a "rock star" mentality that uses overly flashy presentation.

6/25/2010 Friday
I was guided to Ecclesiastes 7 - "Sorrow is better than laughter, because a sad face is good for the heart. The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of pleasure." (Ecclesiastes 7:3). "Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked? When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future." (Ecclesiastes 7:13).

2010 July, August, September 2/13/2011 8:45 PM
7/7/2010 Wednesday
A friend sent me Philippians 4:13, "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength". This was another reminder of 4:13 guidance I had been getting. This time I noticed the two numbers, four and thirteen, of the verse had meaning as well. The four linked to Hope from the "5, 4, 2" and the thirteen linked to Promise and Blessing from the 213 Promise (see 5/4/2010 and Meaning of Numbers). Philippians 4:13 was symbolically and literally a statement of hope and promise giving strength to those who have difficult things to surmount.

This link to the meaning of the words and the verse numbers gives another clue that Scripture is as God intended it to be, God-breathed, verse by verse even though there may be translation errors (2 Timothy 3:16). I had seen this connection before in dealing with the numbers 111 and 213 in guidance.

7/30/2010 Friday
I was guided to Exodus 4:13 - "But [Moses] said, 'Oh my Lord, please send someone else.'"

That is where God called Moses to lead the Jews out of Egypt, but Moses balked at the task being someone who was "slow of speech and tongue" and was used to running away and hiding. It goes with my role to speak the truth about what I've learned, because like Moses, I also am not a good speaker. However, God gave me the strength (another 4:13 reference) to continue on the path of a prophet to try and teach the full truth and change the church.

I thought it interesting that the verse number for Exodus 4:13 matched the 4:13 of Philippians. It wasn't hard to understand the message God was telling me, because like Moses, I am a reluctant speaker, yet I was called to this task to help build God's Pure Bride by preparing His People for His return.

I knew then the 4:13 link in Philippians and Exodus was no funny accident. It was more evidence that Scripture is God-breathed as He wanted, because Moses needed the strength to do something unimaginable for God (Exodus 4:13), and he could only do it with the power God would provide (Philippians 4:13). This message helped me face my own reality of doing the impossible for God, even though I was ill prepared and reluctant as Moses was.

8/26/2010 Thursday
While meeting with a pastor who led a church motorcycle group, he brought up a pencil drawing that someone with the gift of prophetic art gave him. The drawing was a gift from God about fond memories of his life before coming to Him. This led to my own remembering of my past during the motorcycle retreat the pastor invited me to.

It was an unexpected time of remembering what God does in our lives, and with other things about remembering, it led me to believe God was building His Book of Remembrance (Malachi 3:16), and so soon afterwards I actively began to move towards changing myself and the church to remember the old ways (see 10/17/2009).

8/28/2010 Saturday
During the Christian motorcycle retreat,
I noticed a wood plaque in my cabin's bathroom quoted Philippians 4:13, "I can do everything through Him who gives me strength", which immediately gave me a smile because of all the 4:13 guidance I got months earlier. I thought it was just a warm reminder from the Lord about pushing through financial hardship, but that evening, the lead pastor gave me a Word that would remind me of the true message God intended.

While we were praying at the chapel after the evening service, the pastor said he got a Word for me, "COURAGE," very clear. It was then I remembered the other parts of the 4:13 guidance and my role as the Lord's prophet to speak the truth and help lead the church to prepare for His return. It was a sobering reminder of my duty that I had often tried to forget and push into the background.

9/9/2010 Thursday
I was guided to 1 Timothy 4:13 - "Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through a prophetic message when the body of elders laid their hands on you."

The Scripture given goes with the 4:13 theme of accomplishing difficult goals (see
8/28/2010). Here it relates to my role in teaching about the full truth.

It is my role to point out the truth and teach the church how to correct herself. The truth being pointed out is that the church is suffering from death, because she is focused on the wrong things and over sentimentalizing guidance.

A prime example is the skewing of Scripture referring to Love, such as in 1 Corinthians 13 (see 5/4/2010). This is a problem because when we overemphasize emotions and worldly notions of love, it prevents us from seeing what words truly mean, which can literally prevent spiritual growth.

9/22/2010 Wednesday
A Christian friend suggested the song, "What If?" by Nicole Nordeman to me
(see What If). The lyrics start "But what if you're wrong? What if there's more?..." The singer is talking about people being wrong about God and His Gospel of Jesus, but this time it ends up being a nudge to me. I was wrong about the information coming from God. It leads into 11/3/2010 where I finally put it all together with other guidance about remembering (see 8/26/2010).

I came upon the song, "Brave," also by Nicole Nordeman when I reviewed the album the song "What If?" came in. I had heard a different rendition of it in church, so I was surprised to see the original artist was Nicole. I was even more surprised to see it was 4 minutes 13 seconds long (4:13) when I transferred it to my music player. This had me recall my experiences with 413 before (see 3/5/2010).

It's no coincidence this number goes with a song about being brave for God and leaving behind the "status quo" in Nicole's terms or the accepted way of doing things. Soon after I got this song, I got guidance to be brave and reach out to a fellow Christian who needed some friendly nudging (see What If). It also goes with the other guidance related to 4:13 about stepping up for God as His servant, for "I can do all things..."

2010 October, November, December 2/13/2011 8:46 PM
10/25/2010 Monday
I was guided to Joshua 7 where the results of breaking God's covenants are seen when Achan and his family do not obey God's covenant terms.

Conditional covenants are promises that come after certain conditions or terms are fulfilled. This means if we do not uphold the conditions of the covenant, the promises of the covenant are not given. Conditional covenants take the form, "You do this and I'll do that". It is only WHEN the conditions of the covenant are fulfilled THEN the promises are given.

This is especially important to understand concerning salvation because the New Covenant of Grace in Christ is a conditional covenant with terms to fulfill and keep. It's a conditional covenant that promises eternal life with God if its terms are met. These terms were spoken by Jesus in Matthew 10:32-33: "Whoever acknowledges Me [Jesus] before others, I will also acknowledge before My Father in heaven. But whoever disowns Me before others, I will disown before My Father in heaven." These covenant terms are restated or reaffirmed in Luke 12:8-9,  2 Timothy 2:12, 1 John 2:23 and 1 John 4:15.

This states how we must acknowledge Jesus to other people to be acknowledged in Heaven (Matthew 10:32), which means we have to confess our belief in Jesus to someone else. That is the covenant condition for getting eternal salvation and why Apostle Paul says, "If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved" (Romans 10:9-10).

We see here that our faith is only our justification or righteousness for being saved - it is the beginning point - but faith alone is not what actually saves us into God's Kingdom. It is our confession of faith in Jesus to someone that saves us since Paul says, "it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."

Without a proper confession, the covenant term for getting eternal salvation in Matthew 10:32 is not fulfilled, so without the confession the person is not saved through Christ even if they believe in Him. The Scripture of John 12:42-50 confirms that believers are eternally condemned for this reason, and this unfulilled covenant term is why Jesus says, "I never knew you" to believers who said they prophesied and performed miracles in His Name (Matthew 7:21-23). Jesus never knew them because they were never saved into His Kingdom through a confession even though they believed in and used His Name.

The Narrow Door of Luke 13:22-30 also speaks about how believers are turned away from God's Kingdom. They say, "We ate and drank with You, and You taught in our streets" referring to having communion (breaking bread and drinking juice/wine) with Jesus and teaching His Gospel, but He tells them, "I don't know you or where you come from" because they were either never saved in the first place, like the people of Matthew 7:21-23, or they lost their eternal salvation.

I talked a bit about how to become saved but only mentioned getting salvation. The other half of the covenant terms for Grace is stated in Matthew 10:33, "But whoever disowns Me [Jesus] before others, I will disown before My Father in heaven." This is reaffirmed in
Luke 12:9,  2 Timothy 2:12 and 1 John 2:23. It says how we lose eternal salvation - by doing the opposite for getting it - which is to deny belief in Jesus or disown Him in front of people. That will have you denied in Heaven, even if you still believe in Jesus.

These covenant conditions for eternal salvation are extremely important to understand. The church's overemphasis on God's love and faith makes people think that only faith in Jesus and having a relationship with Him are sufficient to have and secure eternal salvation. But the full truth is, we need to fulfill and keep our confession of faith in Jesus secure through this life (Hebrews 10:23), no matter the circumstance or threat. Many Christians have died and are dying today to keep that confession secure, whether they know they are keeping the covenant terms for Grace or not. They would rather die than turn away from Christ. That is how God wants His People to act - to put Him before all else, even this present life. There is nothing in this life worth more than eternity with God in the next life.

The Scripture of Joshua 7 is a reminder of the consequences of breaking God's covenants and commands. In Joshua 7, Achan and his family broke the covenant God made for plunder taken in Jericho (Joshua 6:17-19). Items of value were to be put in the Lord's treasury but Achan and his family secretly kept some. This was a sin that took away God's protection in the first battle to take Ai after Jericho (Joshua 7:4-5). It only took one instance to break God's covenant and many died afterwards when God withdrew His protection.

11/3/2010 Wednesday
After I finally accepted there was validity and truth in how we get and lose eternal salvation and other aspects of God's Kingdom, I committed to making the changes needed to remove sin from my life and teach the church to do the same, because I could now see why I got so much guidance about remembering in the last months. I left the Harlot Church to fulfill my roles in Christ, which you can see in this journal and other teaching on this website.

Now that I did remember God's ways that included law and covenant and sought to return to Him completely, I got a wonderful token of appreciation with a ring my ex-wife gave to me. See 11/7/2010 for the meaning of the ring.

11/7/2010 Saturday
I received 7 repeated devotional emails from July of this year and noticed they were centered on July 12th, my birthday, which mirrored the ring I just got on 11/3/2010 because the center gem is a square cut red gemstone, which I related to my birthstone. And like the emails with six devotionals surrounding the central July 12th one (three on each side), my ring has six small diamonds around the center gem, also with three on each side of it. Seven emails, seven gems, and on the seventh of the month.

It was puzzling to get all the references to the number seven and the seven repeated emails from earlier in the year, especially right after receiving my ring, and having them connect through my birthday and birthstone. The emails started coming in one at a time during the night of 11/6/2010. This morning, after checking email I noticed the seven emails curiously centered around my birthday. Then it hit me.

The devotional arrangement matched the gemstones on the ring I just got. The "center" devotional of July 12th goes with the large, center gem. It was about God, The Holy Trinity, which has obvious importance as the centerpiece, but the gem is also square cut, which further symbolizes the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem because squares symbolize the Pure Bride and New Jerusalem and go with the perfectly square dimensions of New Jerusalem in Revelation 21:16.

The red gem, which I believe is a garnet, also has meaning since it's color is a dark blood red that symbolizes covenant and Jesus' blood shed on the cross. With all this symbolism, the center gem represents God's covenant promise of making His perfected Pure Bride a reality, making the ring a signet ring for my role to help build the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem. Further covenant links with the red color go with the knowledge of how God's covenants work being an important part of His Kingdom (see 10/25/2010 and 1/19/2011).

The other "supporting" devotionals, which correspond to the six surrounding gems around the center gem, are as follows:

The July 9th devotional talked about how King Cyrus and King Josiah were prophesied hundreds of years before they were born, even being called by name (1 Kings 13:2, Isaiah 44:28). King Josiah was important in my guidance as an example of a righteous king who repented greatly when he found out he and his people were wrong in their beliefs and actions (see 1/18/2009 and 1/19/2009). He brought Israel back to God without needing proof or calamity. All he needed was hearing what God wanted from the lost Book of the Law (2 Kings 22, 2 Chronicles 34).

King Cyrus was also referenced in guidance through the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, and Zechariah, which all talk about rebuilding God's temple after the exile in Babylon. King Cyrus, though a foreigner to the Jews, was God's instrument and shepherd in getting them back to Jerusalem and providing the resources they needed to rebuild the temple (Isaiah 44:28). This parallels what is going on now with getting God's People to come fully back to Him by building His new temple, the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem, through Christ and the New Covenant. The link to my ring is that I am like King Cyrus because of my role to promote this.

The July 10th devotional talks about how God's power, grace, and peace exceed understanding. It alludes to how His covenant for eternal salvation works and how different the true workings of His Kingdom are compared to what the church thinks.

The July 11th devotional is about "entropy" - the shame or turning inward that goes with failing to witness and speak for God. Speaking up and not hiding is a duty for all Christians, especially for His anointed servants today. We should have no shame whatsoever to speak what is right and true.

The July 13th devotional talks about resurrection, especially of everyone in the Last Days. The resurrections (what the church calls The Rapture) actually occur after the Great Tribulation (see 3/3/2009). I also noted the numbers for the date 7/13 are symbolic of a Full (7) Promise (13) as I noted about the meaning of numbers. It goes with Daniel 7:13 as a full promise He would come as Jesus linking another Scripture to its symbolic meaning in the verse numbers as well as the literal meaning of the words (see 7/7/2010 for another example).

The July 14th devotional is about the good seed of His Word being sown by Christ and the children of His kingdom who took His Seed and were regenerated. It pertains to things here because God is still sowing His Good Seed with His live guidance, and the church needs to accept that Seed to yield the full crops of destiny that He has planned for us.

The July 15th devotional is titled "Learn By Example" and talks about the apostle Paul's example of being a Christian in 2 Timothy. This links to guidance here about rightly dividing His Word and understanding the difference between what was recorded in Scripture as opposed to what God meant when He stated it. See the guidance about 2 Timothy 2:13 on 2/6/2011 for more. It also makes note of listening to the testimony and experience of others who were called to teach correctly. A good deal of faith is required because I know the feelings of uncertainty and not wanting to change or leave they ways of the popular church.

I also noted the devotional for this day (November 7) was about "biblical irony," which goes with the deep mysteries being revealed now. Ironic that so many who believe they are saved, actually are not, because they did not fulfill the terms of the New Covenant. Ironic that the church thinks they know how God works and what He wants, but really know little about what is going on.

All the details of the devotionals syncing up with my ring had me scratching my head. It made me remember guidance some time earlier about this ring that went with the Scripture, "everything comes from God" (1 Corinthians 11:12), which refers to the ring actually being given to me by Him.

With the seven repeated devotionals (sent again because of a "computer error" as the ministry apologized later), the ring is a constant reminder of how real God is and what to hold most dear:
  1. God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and His plans of preparing God's people and make the perfected Pure Bride - front and center.
  2. What He wants - His new temple built, His Pure Bride - us, His people - ready for Him.
  3. God and His ways are much more than our reasoning can comprehend. Don't lean on your own understanding, but on His.
  4. Never shy away from our roles in Christ. Seek your duties in God through His Spirit and walk in them.
  5. Hold on to His promises, no matter how great the troubles are.
  6. Remember His live guidance is just as important as His Written Word. The River of Life is sowing the Good Seed as we speak.
  7. Learn by the example of others. Rejecting witness testimony keeps you confined to a smaller part of the truth, which leads you to the wrong conclusions, just like the majority of the world has done by rejecting witnesses to the Gospel.
Later, I understood guidance revealing the ring to be a signet ring that goes with guidance about the Book of Haggai (see 11/6/2009) and the signet ring in Haggai 2:23. It all refers to my role in building God's new temple of the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem and prepare His people.

Sometime later in 2011, I got another surprise from this ring. During this time I had gotten guidance that one of my duties is to bring high definition detail to the truth. It refers to guidance, like here, that give further details for the truth, God's Kingdom and how to interpret Scripture and guidance.

What does that have to do with the ring? I found inside the ring's band the words "BLU RAY" inscribed (see right photo below). I believe it is the trademark for the jeweler, Hy Spreckman and Sons of Chicago, but the interesting thing is, Blu-ray (BD) video discs are the high definition standard replacing DVD video discs. The Blu-ray disc video standard came many years after Hy Spreckman had their BLU RAY trademark.


11/17/2010 Tuesday
I was guided to John 3 where Jesus talks about needing to be born again, "In reply Jesus declared, 'I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.'" (John 3:3)

The Greek of "born again" here means "born from above." This refers to our spirit needing to be reborn with God's Spirit, which comes from heaven (above), to enter God's kingdom. The moment that happens is when our confession of faith is acknowledged by another person because this Scripture goes with the covenant terms of getting eternal salvation - acknowledge faith in Jesus to other people and He will acknowledge us in heaven (Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9-10; 1 John 2:23,4:15). See
3/3/2009 and 10/25/2010 for details.

11/23/2010 Tuesday
I got guidance about movies and
the Disney movie, Tangled, in particular. After seeing the movie, I realized God was saying something related to the story of Rapunzel, which is a Disney version of the original Rapunzel fairytale. It wasn't until much later that further guidance revealed the prophetic message to be a shocking truth about the Harlot Church (see 12/24/2010 and 10/30/2011). The guidance also shows, once again, how God orchestrates people and their work with precision to give a message, even without their realizing it (see "Refining Wisdom Heals All Wounds" for more examples).

The guidance refers to Rapunzel and her "mother," Gothel, who was a gypsy witch that kidnapped Rapunzel as a baby and deceived her into believing she was her real mother when in truth, Gothel was keeping her prisoner.

Mother Gothel symbolizes the Harlot Church, while Rapunzel is the Bride (the church as well), who was brought up to believe the ways of the Harlot are God's true "home" or "mother" when in fact she is not, or more accurately, the beliefs and paths that the Harlot Church promotes are not truly God's ways or His true path towards becoming the Bride and onward to the perfected Pure Bride. This false mother also refers to Words that tell us to "come out of your mother..." (Revelation 18:4).

In the movie, Rapunzel reluctantly accepts her false mother despite the unreasonable constraints Gothel places on her. This refers to the Harlot Church trying to comfort and keep the church where she is, but when the church realizes how she is really meant to live she will leave the ways of the Harlot Church.

Other guidance about movies refer to the general theme that Hollywood films portray unrealistic, romantic versions of reality that blind people and the church from spiritual truth (see 1/19/2011). We must get rid of these overly romantic viewpoints about God and His Kingdom because over-romanticizing God and our relationship with Him not only blinds us to His true image and Kingdom but it also makes us ineffective in His plans.

This spiritual blinding from false beliefs causes the church to become "grasshoppers" (see 3/4/2009), so she does not step forward out of the ways of the Harlot Church to change into her ways. But once she understands the truth about how God's Kingdom works, the grasshopper mentality will disappear and the church will go on to the purity and glory that is destined for her as the perfected Pure Bride (see 10/28/2011).

This information is being ignored by the church because the enemy pressures her into keeping her false beliefs by leveraging gut response to the full truth. But it's been shown the church cannot trust her gut feelings based on a worldly mindset, because they blind her to the truth (see 12/20/2010, 8/10/2011 and 10/28/2011). The church doesn't realize her blindness and has been unwittingly working against God.

The church doesn't realize she is doing wrong, because she's been misguided by the enemy and her gut feelings. She thinks her teaching is right when in truth she is misleading God's people with bad teaching and doctrine. It's time the church realizes her true destiny to leave sin and bad teaching behind (see 12/24/2010).

One of the first things she must do is shift focus from a Hollywood romance with God towards a more realistic and healthy relationship based on principles that will carry the relationship through eternity. Those principles help us focus on fulfilling righteousness by understanding and walking within God's commands and covenants. They are the eternal foundation for His Kingdom of Heaven. God's laws are eternal (Psalm 119:152) and having eternal salvation is required to be in God's side of eternity.

Seeing past our romantic views of reality and embracing the full truth is the focal point of this guidance, but the romance of the main characters in the movie, Tangled, is the focal point most people naturally zero in on. We have to let go of the warm and fuzzy feelings and bypass our natural, gut reactions to the truth. They not only blind us to the full truth, but also prevent us from acting on it.

The reality of the situation is most people don't have the knowledge to understand the full truth. People must also understand the details of God's laws and covenants and God's "stern and kind" nature (Romans 11:22) to grasp the full truth. Furthermore, the church is kept from accepting it, because she is blinded by her carnal mindset taught by popular notions, which the enemy uses to keep her from going any farther with God, just like Rapunzel was held captive most of her life without her even knowing it.

The church, though, is focused on the wonder and feelings of a romantic relationship with God, which keeps her from seeing the details of His Kingdom. This bad focus also makes her overlook the essential details of God's laws and covenants. God wants to take His people out of the wrong focuses and towards the destiny He intends (see 9/27/2011).

This goes with guidance about how the Harlot Church's focus on traditions and celebration produces false spiritual blooming and growth (see 2/22/2011) because she does not have a clear idea of God's Kingdom or what He wants us to become. The church needs to let go of false beliefs and bad focuses, like overemphasizing celebration, tradition and romance, in order to walk towards becoming the Pure Bride.

We have to remember to keep correct focus to see God and His Kingdom with sharp detail. The broad and fuzzy strokes of romanticizing God and focusing on the intense feelings of joy and celebration, like using love songs and intense emotions in worship, keep the church stuck in a fairytale that won't last through eternity if she doesn't also understand the foundations of His Kingdom that include law and covenant.

Furthermore, focusing on love and celebration doesn't just keep the church physically stuck, but spiritually as well. Ignoring the mechanics of God's laws and covenants prevents true spiritual renewal and growth because the effects of fulfilling covenants cannot be understood without understanding their details. God promises real spiritual-physical change and blessing when we fulfill covenant, like being reborn with God's Spirit when we confess our belief in Jesus is a literal rebirth of our spirit with His. Our bodies become literal temples for the Lord (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). These real changes simply won't happen if we don't take the required actions. Our wedding garments are not given only from loving God. They come from the righteous acts that loving God moves us to complete with Him (Revelation 19:8, see 5/14/2009).

11/29/2010 Monday
I was guided to Hosea 4, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..." (Hosea 4:6). See the blog
"What Was Hidden" for more on this guidance.

12/8/2010 Wednesday
I was guided to Matthew 10:32-33 and John 12:42-50 - two Scriptures about the covenant terms for eternal salvation and that those Words will judge or condemn a person (John 12:48).

Matthew 10:32-33 state the terms for getting and losing eternal salvation in Christ. We must confess our belief in Jesus to other people and never deny our belief to other people.

John 12:42-50 talks about how those covenant terms will judge or condemn a person in eternity because those Words lead to eternal life (John 12:50). However, people who believe in Jesus but deny that belief, like the Jews in John 12:42, will be condemned in eternity because losing eternal salvation in Christ involves denying belief in Jesus before people (Matthew 10:33).

We should never deny belief in Jesus to anyone because we will lose eternal salvation under the New Covenant. We should also remember to confess our belief in Jesus to others because that is how we attain eternal salvation and is when we are reborn by the Holy Spirit, which must happen if we are to be in God's Kingdom and belong to Him (John 3:3-7; Romans 8:9; see also
3/3/2009 and 10/25/2010).

SPARKED for details on how this important revelation about eternal salvation came about.

12/20/2010 Monday
I was guided to notice the total lunar eclipse taking place this night, which turned the moon a vibrant red color. I didn't realize there was an important metaphor in the eclipse until I got other guidance related to it and how the church errors
(see 3/10/2009 and 8/10/2011).

The lunar eclipse goes with Scripture about the Last Days when God says, "The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood ..." (Joel 2:31, Acts 2:20). It is one of the signs out of many in heaven and earth that go with the Last Days (Joel 2:30). However, guidance related to this on 8/12/2009 makes it clear that God does not want us to focus on dramatic signs or worry about the events of this age. Our focus is to walk towards preparing for the Lord's return by getting rid of sin in ourselves and the church, so we can walk closely with God through this age and into the next.

The lunar eclipse paints an ingenious message using a display of "stapling" real world events and objects with spiritual guidance to show how the church is overlooking the full truth. It shows how the Harlot Church lets worldly notions eclipse or overshadow God's wisdom and truth. To see this, you have to understand that a lunar eclipse happens when the earth is in line between the sun and the moon, so that the earth's shadow blocks out the sun's light on the moon, sometimes producing a red hued moon when the conditions are right (see photo below).

Next, we plug in the symbolism given through guidance by replacing the sun with God's wisdom and truth, the earth with the church, and the moon with the correct ways of becoming the Pure Bride/New Jerusalem. Once the symbolism is in place, we can see how the church is ignoring the truth because she is eclipsing God's wisdom with her worldly focus and interpretations (see photo below).

She is not listening to God because she keeps focus on her misinterpretations of Scripture and the truth, and so eclipses and becomes blind to how to become the perfected Pure Bride and belong to God in His New Jerusalem. The Pure Bride is shown standing on the moon to go with God's Wife in Revelation 12 and the 3rd Compass ministry logo. She symbolizes the church and God's people as she gets Her wings (Revelation 12:14) by removing sin from Her and becoming perfected. Satan is enraged at Her in Revelation 12:17 because She becomes unaccuseable of sin and so is protected by Her righteousness. The enemy then goes after others who follow the Lord but still sin in some way so they can bring curses to the church (Revelation 12:17). See About the 3rd Compass Church Name and Logo for more about the logo and its symbolism.

When the church lets her interpretations overrule what God says is true, she ends up reflecting herself in her spiritual walk instead of God, just like popular philosophies do the same thing. This is a reference to other guidance about mirrors and reflective objects symbolizing how the church and world create false kingdoms of God that are only reflections of themselves because they follow their own interpretations (see 10/28/2011).

God wants us to follow His true reflection and wisdom. Learning more precise knowledge about God's laws and Kingdom and how to test spiritual guidance, will teach the Godly wisdom needed to move His people into the maturity and closeness He wants for all of us. It is not just for spiritual growth, but the perfected Pure Bride is the destiny God has planned for us all. This guidance goes with the themes given on 3/10/2009, 8/12/2009 and 8/10/2011 as well. See those dates for more details concerning the reasons why the church ignores the full truth. The reasons cannot be understood without the knowledge contained in the bigger picture.

1/16/2011 Sunday
I got guidance about Python, the prophesying, deceiving spirit (Acts 16:16, 1 Timothy 4:1) that tries to mislead with prophecy. Python often uses truth to mislead by giving interpretations of Scripture and guidance that are out of context and skew its true meaning. It also gives completely false guidance that may seem to be from God because
the visions, dreams, etc. are prophetic.

Python and other demons have real powers of prophecy or foretelling the future, so simply getting guidance that predicts or links to future events does not mean it is from God. The church must understand this and how the enemy works to mislead and perpetuate false beliefs so she can break free of the enemy and mentalities that prevent her from understanding and accepting the full truth.

1/18/2011 Tuesday
I was guided to the following Scripture:

Hebrews 6:19 - "This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek" (NASB). This verse refers to the sure and steadfast hope of eternal salvation, which allows us to have a direct connection with God through our rebirth with His Spirit upon confessing our belief in Jesus Christ to someone (Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:9-10; 1 John 4:15);

Hebrews 6:8 - People going away in faith are in danger of being cursed and end up being burned, which refers to losing eternal salvation. This supports how eternal salvation can be lost through a progression of sin getting worse because it gives the enemy greater influence in that person's behavior and thinking, which can bring the person to deny Christ and thereby fulfill the covenant terms for losing eternal salvation in Matthew 10:33, Luke 12:9,  2 Timothy 2:12 and 1 John 2:23 (disowning Jesus before others has Him disown us in heaven).

Hebrews 10:23 - "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering?"  (NASB). This verse refers to how important it is to hold onto our confession of belief in Jesus to keep eternal salvation. "Hold fast without wavering" means not to let go of it for any reason whatsoever because releasing your confession by denying Jesus results in eternal condemnation per the covenant terms of losing eternal salvation in Matthew 10:33
, Luke 12:9,  2 Timothy 2:12 and 1 John 2:23.

This Scripture was given as reinforcement for the true mechanics of eternal salvation. Matthew 10:32 states that acknowledging Jesus before other people gets us acknowledged in heaven by God (1 John 4:15 and 1 John 2:23 also state this). That is the firm and secure hope that Hebrews 6:19 speaks of. It is secure because once we attain eternal salvation by acknowledging Jesus to someone else (confessing our belief in Him to another person), it cannot be lost except to break its covenant terms in Matthew 10:32-10:33 by changing your mind about who Jesus is or what He did or by denying Jesus in front of other people.

The Scripture around Hebrews 6:8 builds on this by noting how falling away from faith or belief in Jesus puts us in danger of being cursed and ultimately losing eternal salvation. It is not lost simply by committing sin, but can be lost by progressively getting worse through sin that can end up having us break the covenant terms of eternal salvation. See 3/3/2009, 10/25/2010 and
1/19/2011 for more about eternal salvation.

The reference to Hebrews 10:23 notes how important it is to keep the covenant terms for eternal salvation by keeping our confession of belief in Jesus and never denying Jesus in front of others for any reason at all. Holding fast to our confession of belief in Jesus (the covenant terms for eternal salvation) ensures our place in heaven with God.

1/19/2011 Wednesday
The original Passover in Exodus 12 gives a picture of how conditional covenants work. God commanded the Jews to apply lamb's blood on their doorframes, so He would not strike down their firstborn with the rest of Egypt's (Exodus 12:7,22). This act of putting blood on the doorways was a covenant promising protection for the Jews during the last plague of Egypt. When God saw the blood on the door in accordance to the covenant of protection, He would pass over that household and leave the occupants unharmed (Exodus 12:13), which is where the passover term comes from.

The important thing to note from this is, if a family did not obey the Lord by putting blood on the doorframe, He would not have passed over that household and their firstborn would have died just the same as for the rest of Egypt, because the covenant of protection would have been unfulfilled. It was not the state of being Jewish that protected the Jews, but it was obedience to God's covenant of protection that promised safety. This is an example of how conditional covenants work: a promise is given (protection in this case) only when the terms of the covenant are fulfilled or obeyed (applying the lamb's blood to the doorway, see
10/25/2010 for further notes about covenants).

This guidance goes with the greater meaning of Peter denying Christ (see 4/27/2009). It is summarized here and provides a good example of how to rightly divide God's Word to show its full meaning and further reinforce the true mechanics of salvation, which works by a conditional covenant.

In Luke 22, we see how Jesus talks about Peter denying Him three times (Matthew 26:31, Matthew 26:69, Mark 14:30, Mark 14:66, Luke 22:34, Luke 22:56). Many people will bring this up as an argument that denying Jesus before others has no effect on eternal salvation, but remember we cannot jump to conclusions. We have to look at the details to see what is under the surface.

Jesus said Peter would disown or deny Him three times, using the same terminology as the covenant terms for eternal salvation, which state that denying Jesus before other people would result in being denied in heaven or losing eternal salvation
. Peter also denied Jesus in front of other people, which fulfills the covenant terms for losing eternal salvation (Matthew 10:33; Luke 12:9; 2 Timothy 2:12; 1 John 2:23).

We must consider if Peter's denials took his name out of the Book of Life. They did, because Peter fulfilled the covenant terms for losing eternal salvation, but he had time afterwards to secure His eternal salvation again with new confessions of belief. Here's the proof for the deeper meaning in Peter's denials and later reinstatement (John 21:15).

In Luke 22:31, Jesus tells Peter he would soon deny Him as a result of his being tested, because Satan wanted to "sift [Peter] like wheat." That is a reference to sorting out people into the two eternal choices of heaven and hell, with God in His Kingdom or not. Jesus knew it would happen, but He prayed Peter's faith would not fail completely and that he would return to strengthen his brothers (Luke 22:32).

Why would Jesus say those things if denying Him was trivial? From where was Peter to come back from? Was it from the state of shame or was it from something more serious? And for what purpose would his experience strengthen his brothers?

All of it points to the fact that Peter's denials of Jesus flipped his state of eternal salvation from saved to not saved. They took his name out of the Book of Life, because of the covenant terms for eternal salvation (Matthew 10:32-33; 1 John 2:23; Romans 10:9-10; 1 John 4:15; Luke 12:9;  2 Timothy 2:12), "that very Word [Jesus] spoke," which condemns at the last day (John 12:48) if a person denies belief in Jesus in front of other people.

However, it was not Peter's last day, and he got the chance to return to God's Kingdom and help strengthen his brothers to not make the same mistake he did.

Where in Scripture did Peter acknowledge the Lord in front of others again, so his name was put back into the Book of Life and his eternal salvation reinstated by fulfilling its covenant terms? In John 21:15-17, where Jesus gets Peter to confess his love for Him three times. These were acknowledgements of Jesus in front of other disciples. Why would He have Peter confess three times, though? It's an obvious link back to Peter's three denials, but the reason to link them is not obvious. It isn't that you need three confessions or acknowledgements to be saved again into God's Kingdom. Only one will do, because that's how the New Covenant works.

However, there is a different reason why God wanted three confessions from Peter. His confessions needed to balance out or "repay" his three sins of denial because of the Law of Retribution, which requires all sin be judged and compensated for (Ezekiel 33:14-15). God judges all sin, no matter who does it (Romans 2:6-11; Colossians 3:25; Numbers 14:18; Hebrews 12:4-11; Jeremiah 17:10,21:14,25:14,32:19; Proverbs 24:12; Ezekiel 3:20,33:12-13,18,20; 1 Thessalonians 4:6). Even the angels are not exempt (2 Peter 2:4; Jude 1:6).

So the reasons to link Peter's denials and acknowledgements so obviously is only clear if you know deeper truths about God's Kingdom and the true mechanics of salvation. These are dots of knowledge God wants us to connect, so we can see the true picture of how eternal salvation works. We must link how Satan wanted to sift Peter out of eternal life with how that is done by breaking the covenant terms for eternal salvation and see why Peter's return from doing that would strengthen others not to do the same thing.

There is hope for those who believe, but denied their belief, if they just go back and acknowledge their faith in Christ to someone else and keep that confession solid before death takes that chance away "on [their] last day" (John 12:48). Everyone should be serious about the covenant terms for eternal salvation. No one in God's Kingdom should even think about denying their belief in Jesus. Not for threat of death or anything else. The treasure of eternal salvation is infinitely more valuable than anything else in our temporary, physical lives.

Christians are dying around the world still today before denying the Lord and converting to Islam or other religions. They do that because they value their place with Jesus more than anything else. That is how God wants us to act when it comes to placing Him before everything else and fulfilling the Greatest Command to love the Lord. For it's obedience to His commands that is true love for God (1 John 5:3; John 14:15), which in this case is to keep the covenant terms for Grace in Christ even unto death.

2/6/2011 Sunday
I was guided to the following Scripture:
1 Timothy 1 - Warnings against false teachers: The Law is good if used lawfully or properly (1 Timothy 1:3-1:11). It was not made for the righteous but for those opposing God and anything else contrary to the sound doctrine of the Gospel that Paul was given to keep (1 Timothy 1:8).

2 Timothy 2 - Rightly dividing the Word (KJV, NKJV). Translation is very important but men have slipped in it because they do not know God's thoughts behind His Word (its true meaning and context) and lean on their own understanding instead of God's. Godless people will not succeed in coming to the truth because their mistakes will be clear (2 Timothy 3:9). The church will turn away from sound doctrine and embrace unsound teaching that appeals to their ways of thinking and sense of fulfillment.

These Scriptures refer to teaching sound doctrine and other guidance related to the numbers 111 and 213, which I noted in 1 Timothy 1:11 and 2 Timothy 2:13 (see 3/10/2009 and 3/23/2009). 111 symbolizes God the Holy Trinity (see The Meaning of Numbers), and 213 symbolizes His promise to return and make the Pure Bride complete and mature (see The Meaning of Numbers). The numbers also represent the entire age we're in now from the first coming of Jesus to His return (111 to 213; see The Meaning of Numbers).

1 Timothy 1 talks about true sound doctrine, which Apostle Paul knew and which God has reminded anointed servants of today through guidance from His Spirit. God has shown us that the church cannot understand His Word correctly by using her own reasoning. Instead of relying on her own thinking, the church needs to learn how to use God's mind and let Him interpret by His Spirit, because humans are utterly incapable of understanding God by themselves (Romans 8:6, 1 Corinthians 2:14).

The church has assumed she can understand God correctly simply by studying Scripture, but  she also needs to put the right pieces together, use proper context, and have God's Mind/Spirit to interpret things correctly. The church's errors have led her astray and created misleading translations of Scripture and skewed versions of God and His Kingdom, but God has taught anointed servants what is sound doctrine, so the church can be brought forward into correction and the destiny she is meant to walk in.

2 Timothy 2:13 is in the middle of "faithful and trustworthy" sayings that Paul says are important to remind the church of and teach correctly. We are not to quarrel over the meaning of these words because arguing is fruitless (2 Timothy 2:14), which links to guidance given in Titus 2:13 saying the same thing (see 2/27/2009). The sayings in 2 Timothy 2:11-2:13 are all about eternal salvation as Paul is talking about "his gospel" (2 Timothy 2:8), the true Gospel of Jesus, which gives salvation with eternal glory (2 Timothy 2:10).

2/10/2011 Thursday
I was guided to the following Scripture:
Revelation 6 and Zechariah 6 - about the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse and the 4 Chariots of Zechariah mirroring the 4 Horsemen; the end of Zechariah 6 speaks of Christ rebuilding His temple and calling people from everywhere to help.

John 14:26 about the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 2:16 about our finite minds unable to understand God's eternal truths without revelation from Him.

Psalm 138:2 & Revelation 20:12 about acknowledging God's temple, the importance of His Word in every form, and everyone being judged by what is "written in the books" according to their works.

2 Corinthians 5:17 about having God "teach" and without the Holy Spirit, we would be empty of understanding and wisdom.

1 Peter 3:15 & Colossians 1:10 about "not forgetting".

This goes with guidance related to my duty as a prophet (see 4/13/2011 and 4/17/2011). The events of the Tribulation brought by the 4 Horsemen of Revelation 6 and the 4 Chariots of Zechariah 6 should move the church to change towards becoming the perfected Pure Bride/New Jerusalem (see 1/28/2009).

The last part of Zechariah 6 from 6:9, talks about this "new temple" of the Pure Bride that Christ (symbolized by Joshua) is leading to build. The last verse refers to how He is calling everyone, everywhere through the River of Life to help build her, and even more importantly, He says it requires obedience to Him to take part, which goes with the obedience needed to change ourselves and the church. "Those who are far off will come and build the temple of the Lord. Then you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. And it will take place if you completely obey the Lord your God." Zechariah also links to other guidance about building and maintaining God's new temple (see 3/10/2009, 10/1/2009, and 11/7/2010).

In John 14:26, Jesus says, "But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have to say to you." This goes with God teaching and reminding us now through His Spirit about all the lost and hidden things in Scripture being revealed.

1 Corinthians 2:16 quotes Isaiah 40:13, "'For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?' But we have the mind of Christ," which notes how we need the "mind of Christ" to understand certain things.

Psalm 138:2, "I will bow down toward Your holy temple and will praise Your Name for Your love and Your faithfulness, for You exalted above all things Your Name and Your Word" and Revelation 20:12, "And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books."

The passage in Psalm 138 talks about properly recognizing God's temple and how important His Word is, not just what was recorded in Scripture but His live guidance now. Revelation 20:12 talks about the second resurrection when everyone, both the eternally saved and eternally condemned, will be judged by what they've done. This speaks about acts and action being important. Everything we do or don't do matters. This goes with the work of cleansing the church by "righteous acts" to perfect her into the Pure Bride (see 5/14/2009). We the church are responsible for doing this, so remember that righteousness is not a state alone, but defined by the acts we do.

2 Corinthians 5:17, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" This is in God's "Ministry of Reconciliation," noting how we are a new creation after being reborn with His Spirit. This helps us understand the truth, which goes back to 1 Corinthians 2:16 about how to understand God. This also speaks of letting go of our old ways and allowing the new to come, which relates to leaving behind sin and worldly thinking in us as individuals and as a corporate whole.

1 Peter 3:15, "But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect," and Colossians 1:10, "And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God." These verses talk about remembering in our hearts who Christ is and to be ready, always, to witness and talk about Him, but we must always do it with "gentleness and respect," which goes with guidance about simply presenting and correcting, never arguing, about the things we've learned (see 2/27/2009 and 2/6/2011). We are presenting the full truth here so we all "may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way," which goes with making the perfected Pure Bride/New Jerusalem a reality.

The world, but especially God's people, are searching for answers in the turbulent times we're in because evidence is everywhere that the Tribulation is happening now and God's Spirit is moving like never seen before.

God has the answers in the information He gives to anointed servants. The church, though, promotes the wrong notions of God and His Kingdom and misses something important. This was illustrated when I saw a story on the TV show, America's Most Wanted, where a devoted Christian was killed (see 3/19/2011). It illuminates a serious picture of truth that the church needs to pay attention to because she has a focus problem (see 8/10/2011).

In this case, it is the church's overemphasis on the wrong notions of God's Kingdom that come from focusing too much on joy and celebration. It can end up being fruitless. This is because without the correct knowledge of how to fulfill God's commands and covenants, all the passion being expressed does not secure eternal salvation, which results in fulfilling covenant.

God is trying to move us from a shallow, worldly understanding of His Kingdom to a fuller, spiritual understanding by getting us to focus on important foundations of His Kingdom - how law and covenant work. The consequences are serious because we can see that the man who died in the AMW episode did not have to die.

His loss of physical salvation (being saved from an early death) was a result of breaking God's laws and covenants. The man was active in ministry and helped the needy, but because he was also in disobedience or sin, though we do not know what kind, the enemy has legal right to steal, kill, and destroy. They will often try to plague the most active Christians because they are the biggest threat to their work against God and mankind.

2/22/2011 Tuesday
I got guidance about the marquise cut gem or shape, which is like the shape of a small boat when viewed from above. The shape is also made by the intersection of two overlapping circles.
It symbolizes not being fully in line or overlapping God's perfection since you can think of one circle as representing God's perfection, while our matching up to that - the intersection of the two circles - is how far our circle overlaps the first.

The perfected Pure Bride would have her circle completely overlap God's because she aligns with everything God wants, but today's church only has a portion of her circle overlapping God's. That partial overlap produces a marquise shape and represents her not walking completely as God wants, such as having sin in her life.

A pear/teardrop shape or gemstone is similar to the marquise shape but also expresses sorrow because of an imperfect relationship with God due to ignorance or false beliefs. This shape goes with the church who sins largely because she is unwittingly doing things that break God's laws and covenants.

The sharp, slender marquise shape, though, goes with more deliberately maintained sin. This would be a church or person who deliberately interprets Scripture the wrong way to suit her doctrinal viewpoints. She fiercely maintains her viewpoint and false doctrine despite evidence that contradicts her.

This type of Harlot Church lets God's true pearls of wisdom fall because she rejects the truth. She misses the renewal that comes from fulfilling law and covenant because she dismisses their importance or does not understand how they work.

3/19/2011 Saturday
I saw America's Most Wanted tonight where they talked about a devoted Christian man being violently robbed and killed. With guidance about sin and law and covenant, it's clear this Christian died because he had serious sin. So many people, including many Christians believe "stuff just happens," but the reality is there's a reason for tragedies like this. He was a devoted believer and active in ministry, but it did not prevent his premature death.

This man did not have to die when he did, but because of his legal state of being accusable of serious sin, the enemy could legally come to literally kill and destroy.

4/3/2011 Sunday
I got guidance about the symbolism of sharks. They are people who
jump too quickly to the wrong conclusions in interpreting Scripture and other guidance and so misinterpret things.

These people can be over sensitive to things given in guidance because certain stimuli triggers them to jump at information before the complete picture is given or known, such as guidance that appears to be related to a subject the person is very interested in, like their love life or dramatic events. We must have patience to let God give all the needed pieces of information, because jumping to conclusions is a major reason why the church is constantly busy doing things she was not truly directed by God to do.

Other guidance has shown these types of people jump after "flashy" stimuli like fish do by instinct when they see a bright lure. Our instincts or desires can also make us grab after information that is important to us, such as guidance that appears to be about our fortunes.

We must resist the temptation to use gut responses to interpret and focus on spiritual guidance because our carnal ways of seeing the world prevent us from understanding things as they actually are. We have to have discipline, patience, and the complete and correct picture (all the necessary information connected and interpreted properly).

4/13/2011 Wednesday
I had lunch with a new friend who helps lead a class for Christian Asian outreach and seemed interested in my ministry work. My meeting turned out to be an important part of my role in serving the Lord
(see 2/19/2011). I noted the date was 4/13 as well, which went with guidance about 4:13 and the Lord giving me the strength to do His will. This meeting was scheduled the week before at my friend's request and ended up being today because of our schedules.

During lunch, we talked about ministry and he was actually the first person I told directly that I was a prophet of the Lord. Nowhere else had I done this. I always skirted the title and only made the suggestion of being a prophet by stating I had prophetic messages to share. I was performing my duties as a prophet, but I was not outspoken about the title. I felt it wasn't humble to admit my anointment as a prophet (see 7/30/2009 and 3/5/2010), but we also should not run away from our God-given roles because some of us are called to lead. We can't do that effectively if we don't stand firm in our stations.

4/17/2011 Sunday
I got more guidance related to 4:13 going with the meaning of the number eight. Eight means regeneration, renewal, a new beginning, and resurrection because the eighth day (Sunday) was when Jesus was resurrected. Sunday is called "the first day of the week" exactly eight times in the Bible (Matthew 28:1, Mark 16:2 & 16:9, Luke 24:1, John 20:1 & 20:19, Acts 20:7 and 1 Corinthians 16:2), so the link between the number 8, Sunday, and His resurrection has a pre-planned nature to it.

This goes with personal tribulation and the Great Tribulation, because going through severe hardships is also about the positive effects of maturing us further. It is not all about judgment. God wants us to know true spiritual fullness and understand that putting on sorrow is a virtue we should all understand.

When we walk in a very close relationship with God through the hard times, we will be renewed and refined in ways that are impossible with trivial hardships and change. We can see this virtue in Scripture like:

As I compiled the list above, I noticed the last verse is numbered 4:13, which goes with all the other 4:13 guidance I got. It is yet another example of Scripture being God-breathed exactly as He wanted. See
10/1/2009, 7/7/2010, and 7/30/2010 for more examples.

Having sorrow and suffering as Christ did should be an expected part of our Christian walk. It may be a part of maturing with God, but be assured there is the promise of hope in the 4:13 guidance, because the number four means hope and thirteen means great promise and blessing (see 7/7/2010 and The Meaning of Numbers).

2011 July, August September 8/25/2011 8:25 PM
7/12/2011 Tuesday
I got guidance with Colbie Caillat's new album, All Of You. God is a personal God as well as Holy and Revered Lord. I've had numerous experiences relaying how He sends personal messages and "gifts" to give encouragement and show His love and support for us as individuals.

Today, Colbie Caillat's newest album, All Of You, was released on my birthday. I bought it after Colbie announced a song from the album on Twitter the night before.

The song,
"Brighter Than The Sun," had imagery that piqued my interest because of guidance I got about shining bright and witnessing for the Lord. This song was another step in the guidance because I was nudged by the Katy Perry song, "Firework," which stated, "Even brighter than the moon..." while Colbie sings about being "Brighter Than The Sun," a natural progression, though one song talked about shining ourselves while the other was about the spark of new love, which is similar to the wonder we feel when we first discover the Lord is real and become new believers.

Further guidance went with much of the content in Colbie's new album, All Of You, being about love, marriage and hardships, which go with God's plans for having His Bride complete His marriage by perfecting the Pure Bride through hardships in these times of the Great Tribulation.

Around lunchtime while I was listening to "Brighter Than The Sun," I went back to my computer to see an iTunes update window on the screen. It was curious, because it said the new version was "2.13" and stamped with a 2.22. These are numbers with meanings that also point back to the Lord's return and the great promise of love and blessing in that (see 10/1/2009 and The Meaning of Numbers). It appeared to be a normal update window, but the synching with the songs and numbers was very curious.

Later, I got guidance that made it clear that God was also saying He wanted "ALL OF YOU (Colbie's album title)" - every single person, no matter their circumstance or what they've done or are doing wrong. He shows no favoritism with eternal salvation (Acts 10:34).

8/10/2011 Wednesday
I got guidance going with the theme on
12/20/2010 about the church's problem of using too much carnal, worldly focus. It makes her dismiss the truth about God's desire to move her to change (see 12/20/2010). This guidance is also another excellent example of God stapling spiritual things with the physical world in how He uses real people and objects to get His point across (see also 5/4/2010, 11/7/2010, 12/20/2010, and 10/28/2011).

The guidance has to do with Kim Kardasian's enormous 20.5 carat diamond engagement ring and a truth that needs to be conveyed about the church's focus problem and God's plan to change her. She is blind to God's marriage plans because she hasn't learned how to properly see the truth and filter out carnal or bad interpretations (see 7/7/2010).

The church has unbalanced focus on a worldly and physically based relationship with God that overemphasizes celebration, which Kim's oversized gem symbolizes. It makes the church dismiss the truth that God wants all His people to change, understand His laws, and become the perfected Pure Bride/New Jerusalem.

However, the Harlot Church so completely believes the untruths that love and faith in Christ are the only things needed for salvation and a healthy life with God, that she has unwittingly made God's people miss important things, like understanding law and covenant also lets us understand how salvation works.
Sometime after posting this guidance, I found out through friends on 11/1/2011 that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce only 72 days after getting married. She stated that all the excitement of the engagement and wedding prevented her from seeing that she didn't truly love her ex-husband. People everywhere were talking about how the extravagantly funded and advertised engagement and wedding was a sham and farce. I then knew that God had used Kim as a symbolic example of false paths with God before she even wed.

It isn't just a shame, though, but also very saddening to God that His people are not changing from their ways because they're focused on the wrong things, like versions of God and His Kingdom that are not based on the solid foundation of His laws and covenants (see 11/23/2010). He wants our focus to move to these principles of His Kingdom so we can have the blessings associated with walking in them.

8/26/2011 Friday
Moved to 9-11 Prophecy...

9/27/2011 Tuesday
I got guidance about the meaning of "loby" or irregular, distorted hearts (see image below). It connected to a suicide prevention program that singer Colbie Caillat helped promote (see also 7/12/2011 and Refining Wisdom for more about Colbie). The organization used a loby heart in their advertising.

The lobe-like heart represents carnal or fleshy thinking. This focus problem has been shown to blind the church from seeing the full truth (see 12/20/2010 and 8/10/2011). This is further demonstrated by correctly interpreting the guidance here to focus on the larger context of all the connected pieces instead of jumping to conclusions with only the pieces that are easy to connect, like I could have assumed that God wanted me to support the suicide prevention program. However, that would have been an incorrect interpretation of the guidance and not the message God wanted to convey. We have to always allow God to interpret by using all the needed pieces of guidance and not jump to conclusions.

With the greater context given about shadow hearts and how the church is not going after true images of His Kingdom (see 10/28/2011), we can see it's the Church who has become a harm to herself (going with the suicide prevention theme) and needs more complete knowledge and change to bring her the healing and renewal she needs.

10/13/2011 Thursday
The guidance here shows how real destiny is, or rather that we are predestined for purposes by God before we are even born (Psalm 139:16; Jeremiah 1:5).

Today I found my nine year old son had an odd object in his pocket. I thought he was stashing away candy, but he told me it was a flash drive he found outside school. I told him to give it to me so I could find the owner and return it.

I put the flash drive in the computer and browsed the files. The first ones I noticed were lyrics and other files for an old 80's song, "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey. Then in another file, I saw the flash drive belonged to someone named Kim Fate. A big smile came over me because I knew it was no accident "Fate" brought me Kim Fate's files. I knew God had something to say through this.

I didn't know God's intent until I found a story Kim wrote about a tragedy in her life. Her husband suddenly passed away when she was a young mother and expecting another baby soon. It was her darkest day, she said, but the amazing thing was at the end of the story.

After the funeral, she was so tired, she collapsed on her bed and started sleeping. Then she was startled by someone sitting next to her on the bed and an intense bright white light, like nothing she'd ever seen, turned on over her head - a light from an angelic presence, she thought.

She was so scared she didn't move. Then she felt a kiss on her forehead like a tingling electric spark going through her head, like fireworks. It wasn't like any kiss she felt in life. She knew in her heart is was her husband come back to visit her, so she opened her eyes, but only saw a shadow dissipate before her. She cried and laughed at the same time, rejoicing, and felt peace and happiness come over her. It was God's love to comfort her when she needed it most.

I knew the guidance was about pure love from God and keeping focus on the bigger picture instead of only on the parts that interest us, like the wonder of miracles and power of having God in our lives (see 8/10/2011).

The song "Don't Stop Believing" also has significance. Kim's presentation file about the song had the album cover for Journey's Revelation album on the front page. That album contains a re-release of the song. It was originally released in their Escape album in 1981, which I found also contains another interesting alignment that goes with the guidance (see 10/28/2011). These separate pieces fitting together show how God can give revelation in pieces and that we cannot jump to conclusions until all the pieces are given.

10/28/2011 Friday
This guidance goes with
10/13/2011 and the theme of destiny, Godly orchestration, and love. We've all heard of star-crossed lovers and how all the stars seem to line up when we fall in love.

Today, I was having a late breakfast in the dining room when I was struck by an image made from shadows on the wall facing me. I clearly saw a heart hanging from a branch and corals underneath. It shocked me because I knew there wasn't a heart hanging around my house and at the time I had been receiving a lot of guidance about love, so I knew the image was another perfectly timed sign from God.

The shadows were made from sunlight and potted plants that my mother keeps by the window
(photos below). She is the only one that handles the plants. Somehow they had grown and were positioned in exactly the right way to make the shadow scene on the wall in that moment.

Normally, I'm not in the dining room at the right time to see shadows on the wall nor did they ever make a meaningful picture before, but this day everything lined up to reinforce the things God was revealing about love in weeks past. I noticed just a few days later, the leaves of the plants kept growing and changed the shadows so the picture was no longer the same, which shows further that God had timed everything correctly so I could understand the whole revelation in this chain of guidance.

God's amazing level of control isn't the most important thing to see here, though. The precision is simply a Godly fingerprint showing this information is authentically coming from Him. The important information is conveyed by the shadow scene, which is a parallel to the lunar eclipse analogy from 12/20/2010. That guidance spoke about how the church is blind to the full truth because of her worldly mindset and excessive focus on love and celebration
(see 12/20/2010 and 8/10/2011).

The shadows were made from sunlight on green plants, which symbolize God's wisdom (sunlight) and life (green), respectively. They represent true wisdom and life with God, but the world and church are focused on the shadow heart (their worldly notions of love and God), which is only a shadow of the real thing.

Without the real transformation and maturation of knowing and walking in the mechanics of law, covenant and righteousness, the church is only grabbing temporary and fuzzy, shifting shadows of God's wisdom, because she is incorrectly interpreting things with her mind instead of God's and not performing the righteous acts she needs for further blessing and refinement.

Becoming the Pure Bride by changing from our faulty ways so we leave sin behind is the destiny God has planned for us, but the church has been focused on shadows of this destiny, which is the meaning of the corals in the shadow scene. They link to guidance about sorrow and Lamentations 4:7 where corals (or rubies in some translations) refer to the former purity and glory of God's people.

That purity and glory will only return by changing bad teaching and ways into good teaching and ways that eliminate sin and give more detailed knowledge of how the Kingdom works. But because the church is so focused on unrealistic, worldly notions of God and love, she is stuck on the topmost layers of God and not going any farther.

This problem isn't entirely the church's fault, though, because guidance also talks about how the enemy, especially Python, influence the church, so she cannot fully pursue God's purposes and the full truth.

The enemy constantly pressures us and uses our worldly desires to keep us blind and off of God's intended path. The church has to realize this and start focusing more on God's solid foundations - His laws and covenants - instead of generalized love and celebration. She has to let go of the shadows and phantoms of God and love because it gives her false happiness, hope and security when she continues to break God's laws.

That's why all this is linked to Kim Fate's experience with the electric angel kiss (see 10/13/2011). God's love and peace are real, powerful and tangible, just like Kim experienced in her time of need. The church is so focused on the exploding fireworks of God's love that she blows it out of proportion and elevates those things over the rest of God and the truth.

She misses God's fullness in the deeper parts of His Kingdom, which require understanding laws and covenants and walking in obedience with God. That is the very definition of righteousness
(Deuteronomy 6:25; 1 John 3:7), because righteousness is not a belief or state alone. It is action - the result of what you do or don't do.

We must remember all these lessons about the true images of God and His Kingdom.
Our righteous acts promise the results of righteousness that only action can produce, so we have to set and keep our focus on God's goal of becoming His perfected Pure Bride instead of only on the top layers of love and celebration.

That is the link up with the Journey song, "Don't Stop Believing," because the world and enemy keep pressuring us to step farther away from God and the full truth by making us focus on shadows of the truth. B
ut correcting ourselves and standing firm in the full truth will secure our place in heaven. Don't stop believing, because you will be tested and refined. We all are.

Use the full truth to Escape from false ideas of God that are only reflections of ourselves instead of His true Kingdom. That is the message in the album cover for Escape, the original album that "Don't Stop Believing" was released in. It shows a glowing hot vehicle, which symbolizes being refined by "hot" or hard to accept truth. It
breaks out of a mirror ball, which symbolizes false ideas of God's Kingdom, because spheres, circles and arcs symbolize covenant and His Kingdom. And mirrors represent reflections of ourselves. The mirror or reflective sphere represents false kingdoms of God because they are defined by our own ideas of God, morality and eternity. They reflect us, not God's wisdom and truth.

This chain of guidance is an extraordinary example of God stapling spiritual guidance with the physical. Guidance started weeks before correlating with physical signs and objects, many people and objects were orchestrated years and decades in advance from my mother choosing and placing the right kinds of plants by the window, to Kim Fate's files reaching me through my son, to Kim Fate's very name syncing to the theme, to musicians and artists guided invisibly by God's hands (see Refining Wisdom for further examples). All of it pre-planned to shape a bigger picture for God's purposes. How can anyone not believe in destiny and the full truth after so much correlation?

10/30/2011 Sunday
The enemy uses our worldly mindset about love and our tendencies to emphasize emotions to lure us away from God's deeper truths, such as the full truth that makes it clear God's laws and covenants are essential foundations of His Kingdom to understand.

Truths can come from Scripture or live guidance, but because the church hasn't learned how to interpret guidance correctly, she often falls to serious errors of interpretation. She needs to keep the interpretations of her own mind out of the mix, and understand that the enemy uses our nature against us and God's purposes.

A big problem, though, is the church is not listening to God because she has unwittingly become what she was told not to be - an errant teacher that promotes the wrong things.
The church doesn't understand she is doing the wrong things and opposing God's plans because of her worldly mindset.

The only way the church will move quickly into the deep spiritual truth and maturation in the full truth is if she lets go of her old ways of thinking and wrong ideas of God and His Kingdom. She must give complete control and trust over to God instead of trust in her own understanding (Proverbs 3:9).

All this is being revealed and made clear, because God expresses great sorrow for His people being lost to the wrong paths that the church promotes. People are being lost now and in eternity because they don't understand the details of God's laws and covenants and the serious consequences of breaking them or not fulfilling them. He wants us all to understand these truths.

Action is required to change the church as well as to spread the message to the rest of world. The church's destiny is in becoming the Pure Bride, and the rest of the world also suffers from living in and promoting sin, so if you miss what God is trying to teach and correct, you'll miss the very best destiny God has for you now and in eternity.

12/14/2011 Wednesday
I got guidance about SSL, an acronym meaning Secure Sockets Layer, which is a standard of communications encryption over the Internet. This refers to
how God encrypts or "inserts" multiple messages and meaning into His Word that often isn't obvious until He reveals its deeper meaning. God revealing the meaning is important, because anyone can interpret His Word or guidance any number of ways, which would be incorrect. We can never jump to conclusions using our own minds, but allow God to interpret by including all the necessary information and having God's Mind/Spirit.

This deeper layer of encryption is another fingerprint of God that can be seen in Scripture and His live guidance. I've noted this quality in prophetic guidance many times over the years, seeing that God often instructs on one subject in the moment while also revealing meaning or prophesying about another subject using the very same guidance.

I must also note that even though God puts multiple meanings into prophetic guidance, we can never jump to conclusions about that. We must always remember to follow His Spirit correctly and let Him complete the picture with the correct pieces and interpretations.

Examples of this multi-layered prophesying are:
  • Ezekiel 26-27 and Isaiah 23 foretelling the fall of Tyre, which also prophesies victory over Python and the enemy's control of the church (see 5/14/2009)
  • Isaiah 14:12 where it foretells the king of Babylon, which also links to the fall of Satan (Luke 10:18; Revelation 12:9) and the "Babylon" of our time in Revelation 18 - the Harlot Church.
  • Isaiah 33, which is popularly attributed to the fall of Assyria, also prophesies about the Last Days now and the wars in the Middle East
  • The Books of Haggai and Zechariah tell about rebuilding the Lord's Temple in that time and also prophesies about building the Lord's Pure Bride, which is His New Jerusalem "temple" now and into eternity (see 1/31/2009 and 11/6/2009)
  • Jeremiah 2 states how Israel has forsaken God by rebelling against Him and "digging her own cisterns" (Jeremiah 2:8; 2:13), which links to all the prophesying about the 213 Promise of becoming the Pure Bride and correcting the church's false paths today and her "broken cisterns that cannot hold water" (see 3/10/2009 and 3/23/2009); the broken cisterns or leaking water wells refer to the church not listening to God's guidance because the water leaks away
  • Acts 10:9 to 10:48, gives a Biblical example of following God's Spirit correctly by connecting more than one piece of guidance, as well as showing how more than one message is conveyed in that stream of guidance. In Acts 10:9, Peter gets a vision and Words telling him that all manner of food can be eaten. That was the first message and piece of guidance. Then later, Cornelius the centurion meets with Peter because an angel told him to call Peter for a revelation. Peter is then able to connect the visit with the centurion, who was a gentile or non-Jew, with the guidance about not segregating food to mean that God's gift of eternal salvation was also not meant to be segregated. God welcomes and forgives anyone if they fulfill the covenant terms for eternal salvation in Christ, no matter their circumstances or what they had done or are doing wrong (Acts 10:34). An important thing to point out in this is that Peter connected the pieces of guidance with help from the Holy Spirit within him. If we jump to our own conclusions about guidance it can lead to serious errors.
  • In Matthew 23:26 and Luke 11:40-41, Jesus tells the Pharisees they must clean the inside of the cup/bowl first, and then the outside will also be clean. He said in Luke that God made both the outside and the inside and that giving charitably would make them clean. However, it does not make much sense if you take those words literally, because simply giving charity does not make "all things clean" for us as Jesus says there. Common interpretations assume God is only talking about giving out charity to people or having a righteous heart, but God is talking in parable and metaphor to the Pharisees.

    Cleaning the inside of the cup and plate is also a metaphor for the cleansing of our body and spirit through being reborn with God's Spirit when we are truly saved into His Kingdom. The symbolism doesn't just refer to wanting to do righteousness in our heart. This inside cleansing through Jesus's blood and Spirit is noted in Hebrews 9:13-14 and Hebrews 10:19-22. It allows us to come near God behind the curtain where God's Presence is in the Most Holy Place, simply as we are, because we have been cleansed inside by His Spirit if we are saved. This is analogous to how the high priests went behind the curtain in God's temple where the Ark of the Covenant and God's Presence was after they were sure to be ceremonially clean.

    Once we understand the metaphor of truly being clean on the inside through our rebirth with the Holy Spirit, we can see Jesus is telling the Pharisees that they need to acknowledge Him and be saved and reborn by His New Covenant of Grace as well as to have a righteous "charitable" heart. Only then could all things truly be clean for them.

    God's dual meaning of becoming saved and reborn and also of walking with a righteous heart here, is further linked in John 13:10-11 to say that Judas was not saved or "clean" like the other disciples were, at least when he betrayed Jesus. However, there's nothing in Scripture to say that Judas did not become saved after he realized what great wrong he did to Jesus, so I hope in the time between he realized his mistake and his death that he did confess his belief in Christ to someone to gain his eternal salvation. God's Love and Grace is so great such that all our sin is forgiven in the New Covenant if we just fulfill its terms.

I got guidance in the 1996 movie A Time To Kill, which I came to watch because a friend gave me the DVD unexpectedly (see
11/3/2010 and 10/28/2011 for more guidance hinging on physical objects coming from other people), so I watched it at the right time to notice things linking to previous guidance.

The scene of the crippled deputy's testimony goes with guidance about bad, worldly focus causing the church to not understand or accept the true mechanics of God's Kingdom. The specific message here is that the overemphasis of emotions and passion is not how the church should interpret God's laws and covenants.

Overemphasizing emotions and passion prevents people from thinking clearly, and people are not getting true spiritual growth because of focusing on truths that are taken too far, such as thinking that being saved in Christ negates consequences of sin in this life. Truth becomes untrue if it is skewed or misinterpreted. Skewed focus from a worldly mindset prevents spiritual growth because it makes the church overlook details of God's laws and covenants, which still have consequences if we break them.

In the movie, the testimony of the deputy emphasized how he would not hold his friend accountable for murdering the people who harmed his daughter, because he would have done the same thing if that happened to his own daughter. In the end, the friend was acquitted for the murders, even though there was no doubt that he committed the crime. It is a result that did not uphold justice because there was little or no consequence for having broken a serious law (murder).

This is being highlighted because God's laws and covenants do not work in the same way (see 10/25/2010). There are still serious consequences for breaking law and covenant, but the church sometimes misconstrues the forgiveness of sins in Grace to mean that sinning has no consequences to worry about. However, the full truth is that having eternal salvation only saves a person from the consequence of eternal death in sin. Having eternal salvation does not negate anything else about breaking God's laws and covenants, such as the curses coming from sin.

God judges appropriately, though, and can make judgement better or worse depending on the situation. A vigilante murderer would still get judgment since the Lord judges all sin (Romans 2:6-11; Colossians 3:25; Numbers 14:18; Hebrews 12:4-11; Jeremiah 17:10,21:14,25:14,32:19; Proverbs 24:12; Ezekiel 3:20,33:12-13,18,20; 1 Thessalonians 4:6), but judgment may be less or negligible (Psalm 32:1-2; Romans 4:7-8), like when David and his companions apparently were not given judgment for eating sacred bread (Matthew 12:3-4; Mark 2:25-26; Luke 6:3-5; Proverbs 24:12). On the other hand, judgment can be more severe for believers and leaders who should know better than to sin (Hebrews 10:26-31, James 3:1, Luke 12:47-48).

The church needs to understand and accept these deeper truths, so she can get the renewal and blessing that walking in law and covenant promises. An example of this importance is that it's impossible to be reborn with the Holy Spirit and saved into God's Kingdom without having fulfilled the covenant terms for Grace by confessing faith in Jesus to another person (Matthew 10:32; 1 John 4:15; 1 John 2:23; Romans 10:9-10; see The True Gospel).

1/7/2015 Thursday
A woman from Virginia talked publicly about birds that came into her mother's house. It happened two times before and in those two times someone died soon afterward. This time her mother panicked and she also worried and asked for God's safety.

I had tried to move the woman toward the full truth before, but it did not look like she was taking any steps to change her beliefs. In response to her asking for God's safety, I told her:
"We can only have complete temporal safety in this life if we are unaccuseable of sin (see 1/8/2015 for more on this). The enemy not only takes away the Truth from us, but also works hard to accuse us of anything they can. I'm sure the Lord wants you to share what I teach with your mom and family. May you sow those seeds to bear good fruits through Christ Jesus. Amen."
People accused me and/or her of being superstitious about the birds and worrying for nothing. I responded:
"It's not about being superstitious. It looks to me that God is giving her guidance through signs. I'm certain He wants her to connect the dots with other spiritual guidance that notes how birds represent the enemy (Matthew 13:4,19; Mark 4:4,15; Luke 8:5,12) and how someone's home represents their beliefs. Together, God is saying that death comes from letting the enemy take away the Truth given to you so that it is taken out of your 'home' or beliefs, which I'm certain in this case is the life saving Truth about God's laws and covenants that I shared with her. Knowing how it all works helps to prevent curses and bring us out of curses caused by our sin."
The most recent bird was a dove. I don't know what kind of birds the first two were, but I know the dove symbolizes peace and the Holy Spirit, so it was obvious to me the Lord was linking His Spirit as guidance here, so I told them:
"Dove's have traditionally symbolized the Holy Spirit, peace and love. To me, the dove symbolizes God's guidance through His Spirit and has a double meaning with the love theme in that God is noting how our worldly way of thinking about love often has us blind in seeing the fullness of God's character and the full truth of how things work in the world and His Kingdom. That is, we often think that God is only a super-doting parent when we also have to realize He is Judge and He does condemn/punish everyone for their sins. Not even the angels are immune to being punished (2 Peter 2:4, Jude 1:6). God is the same as He always was and has His ways and purpose in doing things, so it is just as important to know Him through the history of the Old Testament as it is through Christ and the New Testament. His laws and covenants are still in effect, of which the New Covenant of Grace in Christ is just one out of many we must understand.

I believe these birds are God's guidance and He wants her family to understand the full truth as well as keep peace (because of the dove symbolism). We aren't supposed to let fear and anxiety overwhelm us, but continue to joy in God and His Kingdom despite seeing so much hardship in the world and despite understanding the more difficult Truths, such as God does punish us for sins we do not know we do. He had the Jews atone for sins they did not know they committed in the Law of Moses (Leviticus 5:14-19).

Through Christ, though, we are atoned for all our sins whether we know we did them or not, but that is eternal atonement for the next life and not temporal for this life. We still need to pay for our sins in this life. You can see that happening everywhere when you see bad things happen to people who seem to be very good in following God's ways, but you still see them being cursed with bad things and dying before their time.

People just don't know what they do wrong, but God still judges them for it. Punishment for willful sin is more severe than for unwitting or unbelieving sin, but all sin is judged. Examples are homosexuals thinking they do not sin in their relationships or that much of popular culture believes that sexual intercourse before marriage is just fine. People think 'karma' just happens, but it is really the cause and effect of blessings and curses from breaking God's laws and covenants or walking in them correctly."
Then the next day I was reviewing guidance from another ministry and looking up the definition of "auspices" when I noted how it is also "a divination or prognostication, originally from observing birds" and immediately recalled the woman's birds.

I thought that was very, very interestingly timed, but I didn't want to jump to conclusions about linking them, so I prayed about telling her about this guidance so she would believe that the Lord was trying to move her into full truth.

Well, hardly a few moments passed when I got a message from her saying thank you for my help. I think she was talking about the tithe money I gave to her because she was in need, but I took the not so coincidental timing of her message as a nudge to tell her about God's guidance, so I replied:
"Thank the Lord He led me to help you and not just in sending the money, but in sharing teaching and guidance. It's very interesting you speak to me just now, because I was looking at the Lord's Words from fellow servants I work with, and I feel some of them are directed towards you and what I said about the birds.

On November 23, 2014, the Lord gave guidance, which I believe He wants me to share with you because of your timely message just now, which answered my prayer if I should share with you.

The guidance noted moving forward and auspices. Auspices means: patronage; support; sponsorship; a favorable sign or propitious circumstance; a divination or prognostication, originally from observing birds.

Obviously, this is no coincidence and confirms what I said that the birds are guidance from the Lord and that He does want you to move forward in the things I teach. May you do so and the Lord bless you in your endeavors to follow Him, through Christ Jesus. Amen."
Then she replied:
"It's interesting when my Mom called and was worried... Her words were... I want you to still "Move forward" with that you are doing... She said you are making good changes and don't stop at that... She said keep moving forward... and then you say those words."
Then I said:
"Praise God for how He weaves everything together. I think it is obvious what He wants you to do. Years ago when I did not believe, the Lord gave me amazing signs and things that lined up inexplicably so that I would recognize His Fingerprint to have me saved and follow on."
This is a wonderful testimony and gives more examples of how God guides people and uses guidance from seemingly unrelated parties and links them up. It is also a good example of one of God's Fingerprints on guidance - that He gives guidance that has more than one message to convey. I wrote about this "encryption" in 12/14/2011.

This is also not the first time I've seen the Lord give "auspices" through birds. I know another Christian woman who was active in pagan spirituality, and the Lord gave her signs through birds that made a spiral design. I recognized the spiral with my own guidance about "swirls of memory" that refer to remembering certain things and the full truth, so I told her the Lord wanted her to leave behind the pagan spiritualism because it is idolatry and He wanted her to change. She did leave behind the pagan spiritualism, but did not seem motivated to move towards other things I teach.

The auspices are unusual and it originally scared me that I could be sinning in "divination" by telling people what God means in the birds, but it is not divination when we let the Lord interpret the signs. That could not have happened if I wasn't already familiar with spiritual guidance from the Lord.

1/8/2015 Thursday

Curses or judgment can come from our actions (or inactions: 2 Chronicles 19:10, Ezekiel 3:18-21, 33:6,8-9; Proverbs 24:11-12; Deuteronomy 22:1-4) that result in sin. Any breaking of God's laws, commands or covenants can give the enemy hooks in us and our families through generational curses (Exodus 20:5; Leviticus 26:39; Numbers 14:18; Deuteronomy 5:9; Jeremiah 2:9,32:18,36:31; Hosea 4:6), which means our children and descendants can suffer for what we do wrong.

We need to remember there are still consequences for our sins in this life and our families' lives even though we have eternal Grace in Christ for the next life. God repays everyone for what they've done (Romans 2:6; Ephesians 6:8; Colossians 3:25; Jeremiah 32:19; Numbers 14:18; Nahum 1:3; Hebrews 12:4-11) and judgment for our sins may come years after we commit them. That long delay for judgment is one reason why the Lord is described as "slow to anger" (Exodus 34:6, Numbers 14:18, Nehemiah 9:17, Psalm 86:15, 103:8, 145:8; Joel 2:13; Jonah 4:2; Nahum 1:3). He does not wish to cause harm (Joel 2:13, Jonah 4:2), but He must act as Judge.

The enemy also works constantly to accuse people of sin so that judgment may come quicker (Revelation 12:10), especially to believers who try to do God's work and expand His Kingdom. The enemy's attacks on people who try to teach the truth correctly is especially pronounced, much like their attacks on new believers to try and turn them away from the truth of God and Christ.

Progress for God's People is stifled when they are lost to curses or leave behind the full truth, so all this is important to remember when we walk towards making the Pure Bride a reality by changing ourselves and the church to get rid of sin. Many people give up on the truth because they continue to be cursed with problems from sin - from sin they did not address or past sins that the enemy brought to the Lord to be judged.
