Peter, when writing to the CHURCH, says: "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, AN HOLY NATION, a peculiar people'' (I Peter 2:9). He calls the church A NATION. He also calls them a RACE, for the word "generation" is from the Greek word "genea" which means "race." The Amplified Bible renders this: "But ye are a chosen race." Nations are generally built up after ethnic lines. The church is both a race and a nation because it is composed of people who have been BEGOTTEN and BORN OF GOD! God is thus the head of an entirely new ETHNIC GROUP which is HEAVENLY! Born of the Spirit! The off-spring of GOD! And God has formed this new race of men into a NATION. It is God's nation. He is the king. And in the scriptures mountains are used to denote kingdoms or nations. So when we read in Dan. 2:45 of a stone CUT OUT OF A MOUNTAIN, it is a stone cut out of a kingdom, out of a NATION! And that nation, or mountain, is GOD'S CHURCH! The stone is, therefore, Christ with all the elect Sons of God.

The very same analogy is drawn in John 's vision of a woman bringing forth a manchild. The woman is the church. The true church. The manchild, born out of the woman, is that company of God's overcoming Sons who are to "rule all nations with a rod of iron" (Rev. 12:5). So the WOMAN of Revelation 12 and the MOUNTAIN from which the stone is cut in Dan. 2:45 ARE ONE AND THE SAME - the church. The MANCHILD out of the woman and the STONE out of the mountain are the very same thing -they are the 144,000 overcoming Sons of God who come to Mount Zion to reign! Immediately following the marvelous description of this 144,000 Sons of God in Rev. 14:1-7, John saw an angel fly through heaven saying, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen." If you read the remainder of the chapter, you will see vividly the process of the destruction of this Babylonish system by the stone which was cut out of the mountain without hands. Furthermore, the manchild, the stone, the 144,000 on Mount Zion are all the same as the OVERCOMERS out of the churches in Rev. chapters 2 and 3. Of these OVERCOMERS it is written: ''And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers" (Rev. 2:26-27). Daniel says of the STONE: "And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever. For as much as thou sawest that the STONE was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that IT brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter; and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure."

So the stone RULES and breaks in pieces all these kingdoms. The overcomers RULE and break the nations into shivers. The manchild RULES "all nations" with a rod of iron. The 144,000 are RULING from Mount Zion, that Mount of kingship and dominion. And each one of these "comes out" of something else - out of a larger group of God's people! They are ALL fulfilling the same function - smashing the kingdoms of this world and bringing the Kingdom of God to pass in the earth! This is God's GOVERNMENT. And THIS IS THE NEXT WORLD GOVERNMENT After Rome, the NEXT WORLD EMPIRE IS THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

Press on, saints of God, for we are on the winning side! We are on the way up, the kingdoms of this world are on the way down! All of the distress and perplexity among the nations today does not indicate the imminent rise of a world dictatorship under the antichrist. Rather it heralds the hour for the final collapse and destruction of this present evil system of things and the victory of God's glorious kingdom. The kingdoms of puny and unregenerated men are growing old and wearing out like a garment. Communism cannot stand. Democracy cannot stand. They are all time worn and threadbare, faded and dilapidated - ready to be rolled up like a worn-out garment and replaced by a new order.

“Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me; and the Lord whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to His temple…behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? For HE IS LIKE A REFINER’S FIRE, and like fuller’s soap: and he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall PURIFY THE SONS OF LEVI, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the Lord an offering in righteousness” (Mal. 3:1-3).

One of God’s promises concerning the Lord who comes to His temple to sit as a refiner’s fire is that He shall “purify the sons of Levi.” The “sons of Levi” in the days when this prophecy was written, were the priests and ministers of God. The “sons of Levi” in these days of the greater spiritual temple of living stones are likewise the priests and ministers of God. Prophetically speaking, the sons of Levi refer to all who have received the call to the Royal Priesthood of Christ after the Order of Melchizedek, which is after the power of an endless life. “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house (temple), an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises (virtues) of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” (I Pet. 2:5,9).

The Lord comes to those elect sons of God who belong to His Priesthood, not first with visible blessings and manifestations which inflate the ego, but as a refiner’s fire to purify and refine them, even as gold and silver are refined. In olden times, the refiner of gold and silver would sit over the burning crucible until the dross and impurities in these metals were completely separated and removed. Not until he could see his face mirrored in the molten metals did he declare them to be pure. So too with us! The Holy Spirit brings to light and deals with every aspect of our lives, separating and removing all that is alien and opposed to God’s nature and character, until the image of His Son Jesus is formed and mirrored in us. Only then will we be able to offer Him those offerings and render Him that service which is pleasing and acceptable in His sight, which will also bring deliverance to groaning creation. The Lord never removes or destroys something without replacing it with something greater and better! He sets us apart, like the sons of Levi, and subjects us to an intense discipline and purification that we might become His Royal Priesthood in the earth.

Every son of God has to be cleansed and purified from the carnal mind which is contrary to the nature of the Lord and is an enemy of His life, filled with all unrighteousness, and is not subject to the will of God and never can be. As William Law wisely said, “SELF is the whole root, branch, and tree of sin.” So for us to be His Priesthood, demonstrating His virtues, expressing His wisdom, pouring forth His love, and manifesting His power, this thing that stands in the way of the priestly heart, nature, and ministry, must be dealt with and taken out of the way. We must be emptied of self and everything that pertains to the earthly-consciousness and Adamic identity, so that only the pure and loving and powerful nature of the divine Christ within may reveal His glory in all its beauty and majesty. All carnality must go through the fire! None can escape it! There is no detour around this lake of fire if we are to arrive finally at the safe harbor of perfection in God.

The sons of Levi in this new Day of the Lord have felt the intensity of that purifying fire! It is not just those “dirty old sinners” out there that must pass through the lake of fire, but truly it is the fear in us, the unbelief in us, the abominable thing in us, the murderer in us, the whoremongering in us, the sorcery in us, the idolatry in us, and the liar in us that must pass through the fire! Oh, yes! Its burning has roused each called and chosen son of God from his lethargic ease as he drifted along the stream of peace with the world; its clear flame has lit up the dark recesses of the carnal mind and the deceitfulness of the human heart, revealing the stark reality of the man of sin sitting in the temple of God; and its blasting flame has separated us from the fleshly follies of the carnal church systems of man. In all who follow the Lamb the fire is effectually doing its purifying work! We have begun to fulfill the prophecy and to “offer unto the Lord and offering in righteousness,” praise His name!

How long will this process continue? I would like to offer you some respite, but I dare not. By inspiration the Psalmist wrote, “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” (Ps. 12:6). Seven is the number of completion and perfection. It reveals the great truth that God’s own nature will be revealed in the fire! He heats up the furnace until we have been perfectly cleansed and purified, nothing remaining but HIMSELF. That which the Lord is receiving unto Himself, and for His holy kingdom purpose in this hour, cannot be of an inferior quality to Himself. The gold — ah, it is HIM! The silver — truly, it is HIM! The life of sonship is pure spirit, divine nature. How marvelous is the grace that birthed us out of His own spirit-substance, for He is the Father of the spirits of all flesh. But there can be no mixture! Only the dross must be removed. Thank God that the Christ comes to us not only on the white horse, but also on the red horse to carry the issue onward to victory! The question follows — Who may abide…endure…wait for…the day of HIS COMING? For He is like a refiner’s fire! Ah, this is not just the blessing realm, it is something beyond the gifts and benefits obtained by faith. This is the purging, cleansing, purifying realm! It is the place of qualifying for sonship, of preparation for immortality, of readiness to rule and reign in the kingdom with Christ as a King-Priest after the Order of Melchizedek. And who shall stand — or who can withstand — who can stand against it, who can stop or prevent His appearing as the refiner’s fire? No one, may I answer, shall be able to withstand or stand against His coming when He appeareth!

Charge on, O horse of fire!

To Redeem Spiritually, it means a return to that place, STATE OF BEING, wisdom, knowledge, life, glory, and dominion which we once had IN GOD before the ages were framed, before this present cosmos or world arrangement began.

This confirms in a beautiful manner the truth concerning the “as it were” the new song learned by the 144,000 on mount Zion; not a new song, but it seemed new, yet the 144,000 overcomers had obviously sung this song before, long before they came to earth from the bosom of the Father.

They can now hear and re-learn and sing again that heavenly song because their carnal earth journey has ended. They are redeemed from the earth, and the earthy way of living life! These now live life from the heavens of the Spirit of life high up in the lofty realms of Mt Zion. That doesn’t mean they have left the earth physically and flown away to some far-off heaven somewhere. Oh, no! It signifies a state of being, deliverance from the power of sin, carnality, sorrow, pain, limitation, and death. Redeemed from the earthy realm of sin and death!


Act 15:14

Simeon hath declared how God at the first "OF THIS AGE" did visit the Gentiles, to TAKE OUT of them A PEOPLE FOR HIS NAME.

Act 15:14 clearly reveals the FIRSTFRUIT OVERCOMERS being called out of the world NOW! From the Day Pentecost fully came calling out of the world his first 120 souls, unto the end of this age God is gathering his FIRSTFRUIT HARVEST! The PURPOSE, PLAN AND ORDER OF GOD "FOR THIS PRESENT AGE" was stated by the apostle James with clearness, power and glory when he, speaking to the apostles and brethren at Jerusalem with the anointing of the Spirit upon him, uttered this remarkable statement: 'Simon has declared how God at the FIRST OF THIS AGE gave us the divine order of THIS AGE! And did declare the visiting of the Gentiles (nations) to CALL OUT of them A PEOPLE for His name. God uses the Apostle James to set his purpose of this age in order! That all with eyes to see that God has predestinated THIS PRESENT AGE according to THE PURPOSE of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Here is a beautiful picture of THE FIRSTFRUITS CALL... Jas 1:18  Of HIS OWN WILL AND PURPOSE begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of FIRSTFRUITS of his creatures. This age has nothing whatsoever to do with the COMPLETE HARVEST OF THE RESIDUE OR THE REST OF MANKIND. This age is completely and totally concerning the FIRSTFRUITS! Why because at the consummation and fulfilment of THIS PRESENT AGE. God has great and wonderful things planned for this OVERCOMING first part of his harvest.

Blessings All!




Jhn 18:9

That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake,  Of them which thou gavest me have I lost none.

Notice we will see the Father has promised JESUS he would INHERIT ALL THINGS. ALL THINGS, ALL MEN, ALL HEATHEN NATIONS and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession! But He knew the age of time he was living in. He knew very well what his Father was doing as he was carrying out his PURPOSE AND PLAN OF THE AGES while he was living on earth. HE KNEW THE SIGNS OF THE TIME IN WHICH HE WAS LIVING.

It was not the Father's purpose in the age he was living to give him all things. Thus he did not ask for all men while he was on earth. HE ASK THE FATHER FOR THE FIRSTFRUITS OF THE HARVEST! Then he said in John 18:9 that all the Father gave him of the FIRSTFRUITS HE HAD NOT LOST NONE ..... NOT EVEN ONE SOUL!

Even though HE KNEW the Father had promised HIM that he would reign in this earth with the divine mission to subdue all enemies under his feet and restore all the universe and present to his Father ALL THINGS until GOD BE ALL IN ALL. Here is the promise ...

1Co 15:28... And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be ALL IN ALL.


Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen NATIONS for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Jesus knew while on earth he was bringing to earth THIS AGE. Which is the AGE OF THE FIRSTFRUITS OF ALL CREATION.... Here is this age of time in manifestation... Jas 1:18.... Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. Thus here it is again... Rev 14:4.... These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

Jesus shall ask the Father for his FULL INHERITANCE in the age to come... Which is the FULL MANIFESTATION OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH. The age to come will manifest the FULLNESS MINISTRY.... The MELCHIZEDEK MINISTRY after the power of an endless life!

Blessings All



Rev 21:5..... Rev 21:1

“Behold, I make all things new!” saith the Lord. “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”

Then the writer to the Book of Hebrews reveals there are MIGHTY WORKS OF A COMING AGE, THE AGE OF THE FULLNESS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD MANIFEST IN EARTH. The revelation of a New Heavens and a New Earth ruling all things. Now our God does a new thing, bringing forth a new heavens and new order in this earth. For the old order with it's rulers are passing away with each passing day. GREATER WORKS THAN JESUS DID TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO are revealed. The Full Manifestation of His power, glory, miracles, and revelation MANIFEST IN THE MIDST OF HIS BRETHREN. We have been merely tasting of the powers of the age to come, a little sampling, of the glory and power of THE FULL MANIFESTATION OF JESUS HIMSELF in our midst!

We have only seen THE FIRSTFRUITS of what God IS DOING NOW through His in-Christed body upon this earth. Behold I make all things new, and I looked and saw a New Heaven and a New Earth wherein dwelleth righteousness. Can you imagine a world where the hospitals have been emptied, the doctors’ offices deserted, the prisons houses closed, the police force all laid off because of no more need, the armies dismantled, thus no more war between the nations on earth, the mortuaries shut down, the dead raised, THE BEAST NATURE CONSUMED IN THE HOLY FIRE THAT JESUS IS. All things drawn and consumed IN HIM! All things in earth losing selfish identities in the glory of his love and power, yes, all things reconciled UNTO AND INTO HIM!

All this earth controlled, and subdued and the new order and power of the New Heavens in the Spirit of God. All nations turned to the Lord, all men transformed into the image and glory of God, and the whole world system and the order of the old heaven and earth transformed into the image of Almighty God. And GREATER WORKS THAN THESE SHALL YOU SEE as the glorious mind of Christ rules and reigns over the earth realm through the manifest sons of God! The fullness of what we have just had a taste is becoming normal works on behalf of humanity in that blessed rule of the New Heaven and New Earth order of things. This reveals the manifestation of the new heavens and the new earth in all the fullness of what that means!


Let me share this! God created time FOR HIS PURPOSE! His ages of time are here Until ALL CREATION IS CHANGED to the point of NEEDING NO MORE CHANGE!

Now the firstfruits shall manifest in his fullness and personally THEY ARE FREED FROM TIME AND DEATH. Just like God is free from TIME AND SPACE NOW! But he manifests himself IN THE AGES OF TIME to bring change to ALL THE UNIVERSE!

Thus the manifest sons of God shall live free from the Influence and limitations of time and death... thus living throughout all the ages to come! But shall also manifest in the realm of time UNTIL CREATION IS FREED from the bondage of death and decay!

God's ages have HIS PURPOSE IN THEM! They shall not pass away UNTIL every man is Completely CHANGED! Then the ages will be rolled up INTO ETERNAL LIFE!

ETERNAL LIFE NEEDS NO MORE CHANGE NOR TIME! Here it is ... he said... I AM GOD I CHANGE NOT! God's ages of time will run their course when he has NO MORE PURPOSE FOR THEM!

THUS WE NOW LIVE IN GODS PLAN AND PURPOSE OF THE AGES!  For the divine purpose of reconciling ALL THINGS unto himself!




GRACE IS MAKING THESE TO SEE GOD'S COMPLETE PURPOSE OF THIS PRESENT AGE! These see with the eyes of his very understanding and purpose in all things.


Rom 11:5

Even so then at THIS PRESENT TIME also there is A REMNANT according to the ELECTION OF GRACE.

God has put in the hearts of the entire Creation a groan in travail for the manifestation and appearing of this company of rulers, delivers and overcomers. These shall never see death but shall manifest into his immortal resurrected life in a moment in the twinkling of the eye as Tabernacles fully comes.

For man's mortality must put on his immortality. These have been made Kings and Priest. And they shall rule with Christ throughout the ages to come. And shall bring deliverance unto his entire creation thus bringing all things into the glorious liberty of the sons of the living God.

Rev 3:21

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

Blessings All!


Phil 2:13.. For it is THE GRACE OF GOD that worketh in us BOTH TO WILL AND TO DO of his good pleasure!

Therefore HIS GRACE empowers us, his grace transforms OUR WILL into harmony and unity with HIS WILL!

It is the working of the Word of God WITHIN that empowers and enables the CHANGE OF HEART! This is a revelation of God's grace that brings forth true repentance and transformation!

Of ourselves we have no ability to add to our own life... no strength to work Kingdom repentance! True repentance is not by the might of man's fleshly will nor strength... but by the POWER OF HIS GRACE FILLED SPIRIT!

For it is the goodness of God working WITHIN that leads to TRUE REPENTANCE AND TRANSFORMATION! We are the works of his gracious hands! As he opens our understanding to HIS WILL we lovingly hunger for TRUE REPENTANCE AND CHANGE! To God be the glory for bringing all men to repentance!
