Last week, I had intended to branch off for a bit into a discussion on faith that wasn’t a part of where we had been, but because of time constraints, I decided to leave that discussion for today instead. In past discussions, I have commented about the number of man being 6.
The body of Christ needs to come to grips with the truth concerning our dealing with unbelief. Family, we all do. We all fail in this way, depending on the circumstances. Can we please start speaking to situations in stead of praying about them? OK. That’s just the preface for today’s discussion and time of sharing. Let’s begin again with what Paul wrote to the Hebrews:
In order to maintain the continuity between last week’s discussion and this week’s, Let’s pick up with some of the statements we wrapped last week with. We go back to Isaiah’s prophecy. In Isaiah 28:13, we are told, “But the Word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept, line upon line, line upon line, here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.”
Many of you have heard me say the following statements in the past, but for the sake of today’s sharing, it is imperative that they be shared again. The Body of Christ has been through several generations of teaching and learning what I have come to call "escapism." Escapist doctrines are those which permit God's people to "hang on" by the skin of their teeth with salvation and baptism doctrines, waiting for that day when they will be "changed in the twinkling of an eye," and raptured out of here. Escapist doctrines do not teach or recognize the necessity of thlipsis.
Our unity with the Lord Jesus Christ is something that Jesus determined from before the foundations of the earth. Stop and think about it! We are told that Jesus “was the Lamb slain before the foundations of the earth.” Why?
We still have some territory to cover before we can get to the Covenant that our early forefathers made with the Lord for the founding of America. Without wasting any time….
Today, if possible, I want to finish the part of our discussion dealing with ãñ•ç• kheseed. When I first began this part of the sharing, it didn’t dawn on me that it was going to become so exhaustive but buckle your seatbelts, when we start to expand on this concept with regard to the establishing of the United States of America, you will see Covenant repeated again and again and again.
We are continuing today with our discussion on the kheseed aspect of Covenant. Guess I didn’t think it would take this long to cover the various aspects of it, but it is too important to simply brush over. Let’s pick up with the last couple of paragraphs from last week so as to connect our thought processes.
The topic of kheseed is one rarely covered in the body of Christ. In my 77+ years, I’ve only heard the topic discussed one time. Because this is part and parcel of all that is real Covenant, it is critical that everyone really get a grasp on this. It is important for us to understand Covenant – especially within the framework of God’s economy, and what He is doing among His people.
The prophecy to the Ekklesia in Philadelphia is one of the most germane prophecies in the Word concerning the Tabernacle of David. What we see in this prophecy is the actual fulfillment of the heart’s desire of the Lord for those who have overcome the Enemy, his tricks, his machinations, the various evil spirits by which he seeks to destroy them – and in reality, destroy God’s objective to have a family like Him.
