The Children of the Wilderness

Children of the Wilderness

Let us read God’s Holy Word

Joshua 5: And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt. Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised. For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the Lord: unto whom the Lord sware that he would not shew them the land, which the Lord sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey. And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them Joshua circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way. And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were whole. And the Lord said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day. 10 And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho. 11 And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day. 12 And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

Moses led Israel out of Egypt. There were approximately 2,000,000 of them. But in the wilderness as they traveled, we find out that the boys were not circumcised on the eighth day as required.

Now that Moses had passed the torch to Joshua, the Lord was using him to be his mouthpiece to Israel. Now as they were crossing the Jordan we find a couple of things happen.

  • He had to circumcise them.
  • The reproach of Egypt is removed.
  • The ate the Passover.
  • The manna ceased.

We, today, had a Word Prophet as foretold to us by Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7. He called people out of modern Egypt as well; spiritual Egypt. He had a message from the Lord God just as sure as Moses’ message was from God. He even had a sign in his hand. He spoke into existence as Moses did. But the people rejected also rejected him just as Moses was rejected, just as Jesus was rejected. They rejected the man, they rejected the ministry, they rejected the message, and most importantly, they rejected the Lord God who sent him.

The United States was judged in the 1950’s for rejecting the Message of the Hour. And just as God judged Amelek and they waited 400 years to bring the judgement to pass, so too is he waiting on America. There are born again spirit filled Christians there. The Lord won’t let a spark of fire fall until they are gone. And the Lamb Beast still has some prophesy to fulfill before she becomes smoking holes from one coast to the other. But she shall burn!

So what of the Children of the Wilderness, those who have grown since the Prophet left? What of the Promised Land?

   55-0119 – This Great Warrior, Joshua – William Branham

6 Now, many people has regarded that typologist, as myself, has said that was represented after the wilderness journey, then going into glory. Now, there may be someone here that teaches it that way tonight. That wouldn’t make any difference, my brother, or sister, whatever it is. I may be wrong in my theories of it, but I never could liken the promised land to being heaven because they had wars in the promised land. I’m a millenialist. I believe that there’ll be a Millennium, a thousand years on the earth that mankind will go right back to God just as he come out from God. And I believe that the promised land represented the Millennium, the thousand years in the Millennium.

 7  If you notice, as soon as they crossed Jordan, which means separation from this earthly journey into the other land, they—the manna, which was a spiritual thing, ceased, and they eat of the old corn. They eat of the fruit of the land again. And in the Millennium… See, we are eating spiritual manna now, but will be back—won’t need spiritual manna in that time, we will eat the fruit of the vine again, and of the field, the corn. And the Bible said we would build houses and inhabit them, plant vineyards and eat the fruit of them. When we come into the Millennium, that thousand years of rest, when there’ll be wars and troubles and sickness and death will flee from the world, we will return here on this earth and be with Christ a thousand years, right here before we go into glory. That’s the teaching of the Scripture.

8  Now, see how beautiful it’s typed out. It was a type of Egypt, being settled in Egypt. Many people was left in Egypt. Now, as far as we know, Joseph was brought out, his body. But in Egypt there was to be a resurrection in Egypt, because the patriarchs, as far as we know, are buried in Egypt. Many believers were buried in Egypt.

And in the second phase of the journey in the wilderness, many died, and many righteous men, Miriam, Aaron, and many of them, died here in between, in the journey, and there’ll be a resurrection there. And then also, over into the promised land there will be the resurrection.

But those three things typing, Luther age, justification by faith, Luther bringing out the people from Egypt, the garlic pots, flesh of the world; secondly, John Wesley through sanctification; and third, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, where they are free again.


Now that is a good point. We know that the Jordan types death, and as such it would be easy to think that Israel crossing into the Promised Land was the heaven, the eighth day (moving into eternity after the Millennium), but as the Prophet points out, we must line up everywhere, not just on a couple of points. So we see here that the Promised Land is the Millennium, the Seventh Day, the Sabbath. At the Rapture we enter in peace. We are at the door, ready to enter the Millennium. The Millennium will be peace.

God made the world in six days (six thousand years), and on the seventh day he rested. We have been on earth 6,000 years, six days. The Millennium is the Seventh Day, the Sabbath.

There is also an eighth day. We gather and assemble around the word on Sundays. This is not the First day of the week to us, this represents the Eighth Day, Eternity. For after the Millennium, after the second resurrection, after the white throne judgement, the holy city, 1500 miles east to west, 1500 miles north to south, 1500 miles tall, the holy mountain of God, the Bride’s City will come down and we will move in for eternity. Time shall be not more. The Eighth Day is an eternal day. But we have to get there. And we are not there yet. We are physically still in the sixth day.

We are at War! We are still in the Wilderness.

Every moment of every day is a war! It was a war to get this message. It was a war to arrive here on time. It was a war to come to the pulpit. It is a war to bring this message. It is a war to receive this message.

But we are moving into the Promised Land!

Joshua 1: Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

Branham my servant is…. Asleep. But as I was with him, so shall I be with you! Bride of the Lord Jesus Christ! Every place you set your foot, spiritually, is yours. But you must fight for it. Fight! We are in the Joshua day. We are moving into the Promised Land! But we ain’t there yet.

Every promise in the Bible is for you. Put your name there. Make it personal. Consider every name written in the Bible as a placeholder for YOUR name. “By his stripes Paul Brake is healed”. Put your name in every promise. Children of the Wilderness, we have arrived! Make it Personal! It has to be personal!

We keep coming back to this scripture, but there is so much there to cover.

Matthew 25: 1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.

Notice there are two different, separate calls here. In the beginning they all grabbed their lamps and went forth to meet the groom. But he did not come at that time. He tarried. Then they all fell asleep. At the midnight hour, he came. The second call!

At the beginning of this age the call went out at the mouth of the Prophet. The world came. Hundreds of thousands if not millions came out of Egypt by the Prophet’s message. They had water, blood and spirit just as Moses did. They came out under the Blood of the Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Baptism we restored. Manna has been falling for over 100 years now, since 1933. But the Lord tarried in our day. Every sheep must come, every child of God must be positionally adopted as Sons and Daughters of God. Christianity has been wandering in the wilderness of sin of the world. The Bible says that we are pilgrims and strangers!

It has been 50 years since the Prophet Messenger went off the scene. A Jubilee has come and gone. The manna is still falling, but one day soon it will cease. Soon we will be preaching to the lost.

Don’t miss it!

The Groom is tarrying. The Bride is napping in a Laodicea slumber; fat, lazy, half asleep, battle weary. We are at the door, as they were in Joshua’s time, but just like in that day, the Children of the Wilderness were NOT circumcised!

The Second Call is about to come. We are at the midnight hour! Even the scientists tell us we are a minute to midnight. Did you think that was a coincidence?

NEVER!

Hebrews 3: Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years. 10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways. 11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.) 12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. 13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end; 15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation. 16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. 17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? 18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

The rest of God, the SABBATH, is the Holy Spirit. On the seventh day God rested from his works. He did not start up again on day eight. On the seventh day he rested from his works FOREVER. It is not another day. The day was given as a type to show what was to come, just as a lamb was used to type Christ.

The Israelites had the Sabbath every single week in the wilderness, but failed to enter The Sabbath, through unbelief. When we enter into His Rest, when we enter The Sabbath; WE REST FROM OUR OWN WORKS FOREVER!

The works of the flesh cease. Full stop! Have you entered into His Rest? Are you ready for Promised Land today? Are you circumcised of heart and ears?

The ministers are standing in the Jordan. The waters are pulling back. Have you ceased from the Works of the Flesh!?

The Holy Spirit is standing ready with the two-edged sword to circumcise your hearts and ears right now.

Galatians 5: 19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

What are some of those works of the flesh? What do those words mean?

  1. Adultery: moicheia, Adultery
  2. Fornication: porneia, sexual immorality of any kind.
  3. Uncleanness: Akatharsia, State of moral filthiness, sexual sin
  4. Lasciviousness: aselgeia, lewdness, debauchery, dirty jokes
  5. Idolatry: eidololatres, worshipping or honoring false gods
  6. Witchcraft: pharmakeia, DRUG USE!
  7. Hatred: echthra, hostility, antagonism, enmity
  8. Variance: eris, dissention, quarrels, discord
  9. Emulations: zelos, jealousy, morally corrupt zealous ill will
  10. Wrath: thymos, intense displeasure based on real or perceived wrong focused on a righteous punishment.
  11. Strife: eritheia, selfish ambition.
  12. Seditions: dichostasia, divisions, dissention
  13. Heresies: hairesis, factions, cults, cliques
  14. Envyings: phthonos, envying
  15. Murders: phonos, killing
  16. Drunkenness: methe, getting drunk
  17. Revellings: komos, carousing, orgies

How many of the 17 did you know? We have to know by revelation what the Bible says, not just to read the letter of it, but to know what it is saying. It is the same for the Message of the Hour. We hear these terms, the token, the seals are open, Daniel’s seventy weeks, standing in the gap etc, but do you really know what is being said?

Did you notice how many are sexual in nature? Five of the seventeen! That’s about 30%. Why? What was the original sin? Ever committed adultery with the serpent, then went to Adam. She had two sons, twins. Adam knew his wife Eve (one sexual act) and she bore Cain, and then again Abel. Twins. Fraternal twins. Two eggs were fertilized, one by Adam, one by the Serpent. The Blood Line was polluted.

1 Corinthians 6: 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

And:

1 Corinthians 3: 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

Now do you see why it is so important?

If we are still steeping in these things, then we have not entered into His Rest. We are not yet fit for the Promised Land. We cannot yet cross the Jordan. We are NOT Circumcised!

Remember for everything physical, there is a type spiritual.

Spiritual Fornication! Spiritual Adultery!

We can be living clean physically, and be steeped in spiritual fornication. We’ll come back to that in a bit.

Now we find that Joshua had to circumcise them!

We cannot enter into the Promised Land until we are circumcised. But ours is a circumcision of the heart and mind. The works of the flesh are the sign that we are not yet circumcised. We need to have the flesh removed from us! The Lord God circumcises with his word, which the Bible says is sharper than any two edged sword.

The works of the flesh, are THE FLESH!

53-0325 – Israel And The Church #1 – William Branham

And God had Abraham circumcised in confirmation of his faith. And the—what was it? What is the Holy Ghost? Somebody tell me what the Holy Ghost is for. It’s a sign. Is that right? What was circumcision? A sign. Is that right? A sign. God give a sign that He had accepted Abraham, for circumcision. And when you say, “I believe God; I believe Jesus Christ,” then God gives you the baptism of the Holy Ghost as a sign that He’s accepted your faith. Hallelujah. And then you’re sealed in the Kingdom of God, not till the next revival, but until the day of your redemption: Ephesians 4:30, “Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God whereby you’re sealed until the day of your redemption.” There you are.

There were two groups with Moses, those who died in the wilderness, and those who entered the Promised Land. Those who could not enter, the Bible says, failed through unbelief, sin. We just covered that. We can only enter by F•A•I•T•H.

FAITH!

If we are full of sin, full of unbelief, then we simply do not have faith. And our lives will prove it. It is easy to testify, to talk big, but what do we live? Do we forgive or hold grudges? When we get sick, do we call the elders according to James 5:14-16, or do we rely on the arm of flesh and head to the doctors. I have nothing against medicine, it is God’s love gift to the unbeliever. But for the Christian we have Thus Saith the Lord “by his stripes ye were healed”.

If our lives are full of unbelief, full of the flesh, then we are not yet circumcised of the heart and mind. If our minds are constantly thinking on worldly things, if worldly songs are playing in our heads, if we identify with cultures, traditions, creeds, dogmas, associations, organizations, denominations, countries, political parties etc etc etc, then we are yet carnal and uncircumcised. None of those things are of God. Verily the Bible says that if we love the world or the things of the world, the love of God, Agape, is not even in us. Check yourselves!

The Prophet told us that the evidence of the Holy Spirit is being able to say “amen” to every word of Scripture. But that is not just with our mouths, the devil can do that; we have to say AMEN with our lives!

We must APPLY the Token!

We know the parable of the sower, we hear that many times. They all received the exact same word. But they did not all equally apply it. We all sit here and listen to the exact same message. We read the same Bible. But only in a few did the word take, and grow and bear fruit. Only a few entered into the Promised Land. Only the Bride enters the Promised Land!

The Bride’s Revival happens as we cross the Jordan!

If we ain’t crossing over there we won’t even know it is happening. It does not happen in the world, in the realms of the flesh. The Bride’s revival is spiritual. It will happen among the foolish virgins, right in their midst, and they will miss it entirely. Lot knew nothing of Melchizedek!

The Brides Revival will be the Third Pull, the Supernatural Manifestation of the Spoken Word of God in the Bride during the Squeeze when the gospel will be preached to the lost.

56-0408A – What Is A Vision? – William Branham

And I was pulling the line like this, and I was trying to straighten my line out; and He looked at me; He said, “Now, don’t get your line tangled up in these kind of times.” And I thought, “Maybe He’s going give me another try.” And I was—I said, “I’ll sure be careful,” and was winding my line in, and seen it taken up all right; and then when He said that, just then I felt myself go higher, way up. And when I was set down, there I was beneath and standing up above a great tent; I never seen such a tent. And I’d just made a altar call, seeming like, down at the altar; and when I was down there, I looked, and there were hundreds of people standing around the altar weeping because they had accepted the Lord Jesus. And they were just weeping out loud. And I said, “Oh, that’s more like it,” like that.
   
And we’ll jump ahead a moment:

And just then… Now, here’s something. Notice close. There’s a difference between the Angel of the Lord and that Light, because I heard something a moving, as it does when it comes here at the platform at night, kinda like a—[Brother Branham makes a sound “whew”—Ed.] and like a fire whipping around—licking blaze. And It left me, and it went right down over the top of that audience and went and stood over the top of that little building, and then settled down on top of it. And then when It did, this One that was standing by me, behind me, the same voice, the Angel’s voice, He said, “I’ll meet you in there, and this is the third pull, but nobody will know nothing about it.” And I said, “Well, I don’t understand why in there. Why there?” He said, “It will not be a public show this time.” And I said, “I don’t understand going into that closet, like that.”

And He said, “Is not it written by our Lord, ‘when thou prayest, be not like the hypocrites who like to be heard before men, but enter into the secret closet and pray to the Father Who seeth in secret, and He Who seeth in secret shall reward thee openly?'” It’s perfectly to the Scripture; every time it is.

And I said, “I understand.” Then He took me to this place and set me down in this room where I was at, and then He told me what to do for the third time. Now, Christian friends, that’ll—when I leave this world, that’ll still be in my bosom. When I… But you mark my words what’s going to take place 

There was a big show, in a big tent, with a big emotional movement. It was a message based church movement. There was a giant altar call. People appeared to be accepting Jesus, and many even were. They were getting Justified, they were getting Sanctified. But they were in the outer and inner court. They were not in the Holiest of Holies; that was in the little room. That seems to be the standard today. Hundreds of thousands were coming.

But right among them was that little cabin, little room, little building; the Holiest of Holies! And in that building the Angel of the Lord will work and the big show won’t know nothing about it. Signs wonders and miracles, the Third Pull, right under their noses and they will miss it. Don’t think you can miss that?

I saw a doctor miss a miracle happen in the palm of her hand!

When my last son was born it was through a planned cesarean. One of her ovaries as 5cm dilated. The doctor took one ovary in each hand and said that the one was quite obviously in serious condition and considerably dilated. Then with the ovaries in her hands she turned her head to speak to the medical staff and tell them what they would have to do to deal with it.

While she was talking, I cursed the devil in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. When she looked back, the ovaries were both perfectly healthy. She looked, paused, and said, “they are both normal, there is nothing to do here” and proceeded to close everything up. The miracle of God by the Spoken Word happened in the palm of her hand and she missed it.

If the Foolish Virgins will miss it, what of the world? What of the denominations? What of the secular world?

So now be part of the Bride! Don’t get mixed up with anything else.

Psalm 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Stick with the Bible. Stick with the Message of the Hour. Stick with the Prophet. Stick with the Lord Jesus Christ! Stay with the Groom! Do not wander out of line, not even for a moment.

Avoid the ungodly. Avoid the denominations. Avoid cliques. Avoid unrighteousness. Avoid clubs and societies and associations. Stay away from sports teams. Don’t join worldly bands or play that music. Don’t discuss philosophy. Don’t listen to paganism and heathenism. You have been called away from all that. Cut it out of your life!

A Christian walk requires a complete separation from SIN! Period!

1 Corinthians 6: 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

Do not get entangled with them. That includes both the worldly people, and the religious folks. If they have not accepted the Revealed Word of God, testify to them, but don’t let yourself get bogged down by them. If they are not called for eternal life, they will pull you down to hell with them. If you lay with the dogs, you will get flees.

You call them out, but do not let them call you in.

It don’t matter how sweet they are. It does not matter how religious they are. It does not matter how moral and ethical they are. Those things don’t save a person, they are just forms of self righteousness. They are the wool, the works. We are not saved by works. Our self righteousness is filthy rags. We need the pure linen, the Wedding Garment of the Bride!

We will not be part of the Bride’s Revival without the Message of the Hour.

Not one soul who has rejected the Message will be Bride!

Galatians 4: 30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.

The Bride will not be bound! We will not be part of the system. She will not be in the Image of the Beast nor receive the Mark of the Beast. We will not be yoked to them.

The tares are being bound together for the fire. That is what this big worldwide ecclesiastical, interdenominational blah blah blah thing is, the tares being bound together for the fire.

And today many who claim the Message are bound with denominational spirits as well. They form cliques, even among the ministers. They will invite this one, but not that one, will preach here, but not there. Preach where the money is. Preach where the popularity is. Preach for politics.

POLITICS! STRAIGHT FROM THE PIT OF HELL!

Mathew 6: 24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Men getting rich preaching the gospel, so called. They won’t preach the gospel, the Message, only the parts that make people feel good. They tell you that you are the Bride, when they themselves don’t even believe there is one.

They will tell you that if you believe that William Branham was a prophet etc, that you are saved. WE MUST BELIEVE ON JESUS CHRIST!

WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!

The Children of the Wilderness must be Circumcised by the Holy Spirit!

A whole denominational world is learning to use the language of the message. And today a whole bunch of people “in the message” are learning to live like denominational people, and accept denominational dogmas. They are letting down the bars. Holiness has gone out of fashion among them.

The Great Falling Away Has Begun. It is in full swing!

Remember, the devil don’t come with a horse tail and a pitch fork, he comes with a Bible in one hand and a message book in the other. Literally, everybody except the Bride will be fooled.

We will be having the Bride’s Revival. And the world will miss it.

The squeeze is starting. It will put so much pressure on the religious world that only the Bride will overcome. The squeeze will fuel the Bride’s Revival. But the squeeze will be subtle, allowing a way of “escape”. We will be made to look as though we are insane, dangerous people for not accepting the “way out”. But the Lord will be moving.

And mixing with it is Spiritual FORNICATION!

Physical fornication sins against your physical, flesh body.

Spiritual fornication sins against your very Theophany!

Stick with the Word, the Bible. Stick with the vindicated Message, Stick with the Groom. No matter how tough it gets, no matter how sweet they try to make it look, stay with the Word.

We will have the Third Pull in Full Manifestation!

   63-1229E – Look Away To Jesus – William Branham

Now remember, there’ll never be an impersonation of that, ’cause it can’t be. See, it cannot be. Now it’s in existent. And I have… I am warned of this, that soon… Right at this time now it’s just happened, so it could identify its presence among you, see, but it will not be used in a great way until this Council begins to tighten up. And when it does, when that does… The Pentecostals, and so forth, can almost impersonate anything can be done. But when that time comes, when the squeeze comes down, then you’ll see, what you’ve seen temporarily, be manifested in the fullness of its power. See? See? See? See?   

It is only for the Bride. It is only for the Spiritually Circumcised. It is only for those who will go in the Promised Land.

But you gotta get circumcised in the heart and mind FIRST!

The Lord will not fill us until we are completely Sanctified! A Holy God cannot dwell in an unclean vessel.

Balaam was a Prophet. He was not a heathen, he was a prophet. God spoke to him. But he was not following the Lord. He rejected the Message and the Messenger of his day, Moses. We got lots of preachers, teachers, evangelists, apostles and yes even prophets in the world. But are they lined up with the Messenger? Or are they like Balaam? God have Mercy!

Balaam was more interested in money and popularity. He had more respect unto the opinion of the world than the opinion of the Lord God Jehovah. He did not curse Israel, he blessed them. Think about that. Many from the Evangelicals like Donald Trump himself, will stand and bless Israel with their mouths. Trump even attended the Wailing Wall and placed a “prayer” in it. To the blind world this makes him holy.

This Prophet, Balaam, stood for all the world to see and blessed Israel openly and publicly. Yet he was a scoundrel. And through deceit, politics and his sly ecumenical move, he almost completely destroyed them. And had it not been for ONE righteous boy, they would have been wiped off the face of the earth.

Praise God! He always has someone on this earth that He can work with.

Numbers 25: 1 And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel.

 And the Lord said unto Moses, Take all the heads of the people, and hang them up before the Lord against the sun, that the fierce anger of the Lord may be turned away from Israel. And Moses said unto the judges of Israel, Slay ye every one his men that were joined unto Baalpeor.

 And, behold, one of the children of Israel came and brought unto his brethren a Midianitish woman in the sight of Moses, and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping before the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand; And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.

 And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand.

We have too many Balaams. The pulpits of full of them today. We need more Phinehas’s. We need someone willing to go after the evils in the camp. We need men willing to cry and sigh for the abominations in the city.

We need preachers who will stand in the pulpits and call out sin and condemn it! We need preachers with sharp, two edged swords, who are willing to sacrifice all, to circumcise the Children of the Wilderness. We need men with spines, men who honor God, men consecrated to serve the Lord. We need Holy Ghost filled, called, anointed preachers to stand in the waters of the Jordan.

We need men who will preach black and white. There is NO grey! 

A fountain produces either good water or bitter water. It cannot produce both.

Deuteronomy 22: Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled. 10 Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together. 11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

We talked on that last week. We cannot mix the two together. The Word of God is PURE. The moment we try to mix ANYTHING with it, we create a hybrid. It is an abomination. Culture, philosophy, tradition, dogma, creed, logic, reasoning, humanities, psychology, politics, science so called. It is all to perish with the using.

To do so is to pollute God’s Sanctuary. Mix it together, even in our own minds and thoughts, is to defile the Temple of God which ye are!

Cast down imaginations!

Deuteronomy 12: 10 But when ye go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the Lord your God giveth you to inherit, and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety; 11 Then there shall be a place which the Lord your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the Lord: 12 And ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God, ye, and your sons, and your daughters, and your menservants, and your maidservants, and the Levite that is within your gates; forasmuch as he hath no part nor inheritance with you. 13 Take heed to thyself that thou offer not thy burnt offerings in every place that thou seest: 14 But in the place which the Lord shall choose in one of thy tribes, there thou shalt offer thy burnt offerings, and there thou shalt do all that I command thee.

As the Bride of Christ, we cannot just go anywhere. We cannot attend any gathering, any fellowship, any church that suits our fancy. There is a place appointed for each of us to gather, to worship, to tithe to.

But this only applies to the Bride. If we are not Bride, it don’t matter where we go.

If the Lord places you somewhere, go there. Don’t wander. If the Lord gives you a ministry, serve it. Don’t always be looking at the other guy’s job. You can’t do his job and he can’t do yours.

We are members of the Body of Christ. We have a set position. Fingers are on hand, noses on the face, eyes in front, ears on the side. It is all for a purpose. I can scratch my nose with my finger, but I can’t do it with my kidney. Trying to do it would make an awful mess. There was an anointed King once who went into the temple and tried to do a priest’s job. He got leprosy!

When we enter into His Rest, he places us positionally!

It is not enough to simply be born again, we must be adopted! The Bride is NEVER placed in a denomination. We are not heirs with the children of the bondwoman. The wheat will not be heirs with the chaff. The chaff exists to protect the wheat. It looks a lot like the grain, but it is empty and has no life in it. It is propped up by the life of the seed. But the life is in the seed! When the seed ripens, the heat of the sun tightens up the chaff, and it squeezes the seed and pulls back from it. The chaff will pull back from the seed, and verily already has.

Deuteronomy 31: 15 And the Lord appeared in the tabernacle in a pillar of a cloud: and the pillar of the cloud stood over the door of the tabernacle. 16 And the Lord said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.

So here we have the Lord speaking to Moses and Joshua as he prepares to lead the people into the Promised Land. These are the Message People of the Day. Yet look at the rebuke from the Lord.

He says, yes, I’ll bring them over, but it won’t take long and they will turn against me, rise up, and break my covenant. Laodicea!

The self same thing happens today! God sent a vindicated prophet messenger to reveal the entire written word to us. We have been given light on all of it. And we rise up against it. The denominations turned against it. Now from our own have risen ravenous wolves devouring the weak and poor, murdering the Prophet’s character. Pure Evil!

Matthew 13: 24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

The tares will be with the wheat until the harvest. The tares are being bound. That is the big interdenominational ecumenical move today. They are even reeling in the Muslims and Buddhists etc into it. It is the doctrine of Balaam! Make sure you don’t get bound with them. A denominational spirit is afoot. The doctrine of Balaam is creeping in. Avoid it. Run from it. Expose it. Rebuke it. We are NOT all the same and no we do NOT all worship the same God.

There will be the three kinds of believers, the un-believer, the make-believer and the True Believer until the very end. Two shall be working together, one left and one take. Two shall be in bed together, one left and one taken.

Be the right one! Be the Bride!

Circumcise your heart and enter the Promised Land!

The Bride’s Revival is at Hand, and Yes may have already begun. Would you know if it had?

When the Bride crosses the Jordan, and the waters return to block the way, they will leave the 12 stones as a memorial. Those 12 stones represent the 12 Tribes of Israel. Moses and Elijah will be preaching to those 12 Tribes after we leave. And if you are looking at that happening from this side of the Jordan, I truly feel sorry for you.

Do Not Miss It!

Get Circumcised of Heart and Ears!

Children of the Wilderness, the waters of the Jordan are parted:

Get yourself ready for the Exodus today!

 

Kinsmen Redeemer

KINSMEN REDEEMER

Glean in His Field
Glean in His Field alone

“Handfuls of Purpose”

I got a shorter message tonight and I think for the most part a familiar one to most. We are going to look at types, metaphors, allegories. We are going tonight, by the grace of God to look into the book of Ruth and see our Kinsman redeemer first hand. We are going to glean the word and find the “handfuls of purpose” he has left for us.

Ruth 2: 22 And Naomi said unto Ruth her daughter-in-law, It is good, my daughter, that thou go out with his maidens, that they meet thee not in any other field. 23 So she kept fast by the maidens of Boaz to glean unto the end of barley harvest and of wheat harvest; and dwelt with her mother-in-law.

May God add His blessing to the reading of His word.

Ruth kept fast by the maidens of Boaz. A little background, a reminder I hope to most, Ruth types the Bride of Jesus Christ for today. She is the born again, Holy Spirit filled, called out elect gentile Church. Boaz, her kinsmen redeemer types Jesus Christ, the groom. Ruth, a Moabite woman, was brought back as the daughter in Law of Naomi, and Israelite, and went to work in Boaz’s fields. Boaz, according to the law redeemed Naomi and her inheritance and purchased Ruth to be his bride and redeemed her, as the Bible says in Chapter 4, verse 10 “to raise up the name of the dead upon his inheritance, that the name of the dead be not cut off from among his brethren, and from the gate of his place”.

He redeemed the dead so that they would not be cut off. Did not Jesus do the same for us? We, the gentiles, were the dead. We were all lost, separated from God and from his kingdom, separated from his heritage. We were cut off from or brethren and from our own gates.

Colossians 1:21 And you that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled.

We gentiles were total aliens. The Lord God reconciled us back to him through the man Jesus Christ. He redeemed His bride who was lost and cut off from her rightful place beside him. And not only alienated and lost but verily we were already dead.

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience.

Did you ever stop to think about that? Without Jesus Christ we are dead on our feet today. It is not enough that he paid the price, we have to accept that payment. He quickened, gave life to, us. He is the resurrection and the life. He is our Kinsmen Redeemer. We walked as do other gentiles. Ruth was a Moabite. She was not a Jew, she was a gentile. She had no natural inheritance in Israel. To them she was a dog and a heathen. She lived as a Moabite. And she was not alone. Naomi had two daughter’s in law. Do you remember that? They were Orpah and Ruth. Both women had the right to return with Naomi, both women could have been redeemed. Only Ruth cleaved to Naomi. Ruth is the type, the allegory or metaphor, of the Bride of Jesus Christ. Orpah is the type of the backslidden denominational churches today. Orpah is the Sunday church going “christian” who is too full of the world to surrender completely to the Lord Jesus Christ. She returned to Moab and to her false gods.

Moab looked good to Orpah. She had friends and family there. She had a church there. She felt comfortable in the fellowship there. The preaching was easy and appealed to her flesh. The pastor didn’t hammer on sin. He didn’t call the people out for their worldliness. He didn’t harp about women cutting their hair. He didn’t pound the pulpit telling the people that they needed to be born again. She had the good, comfortable life in Moab.

But there was something different in Ruth. She recognized that there was more. She thirsted for that spiritual extra and would not be turned away. Just like Elisha the Tishbite, she recognized something more and refused to let go. She was willing to endure the hardships. Do we recognize something more? Are we willing to endure the hardships or are we going to turn back. Lot’s wife turned back and she is still there at the dead sea. She turned into a pillar of sin. And now the Dead Sea is where all the Hollywood Jezebels go to party. It is a great big resort, full of the world’s debauchery and all the people who promote it.

So we were all dead and our Kinsmen Redeemer it says “raised up the name of the dead upon his inheritance”. Where is you name? In the book of life? In the Lamb’s Book of Life? Jesus Christ, our Kinsmen Redeemer broke the seals on the book of life and only He could break those seals, and if he had not broken those seals, we would all be dead forever. He raised up our dead names and made them to live.

And where did Ruth and Naomi go to in Israel? Bethlehem! Talk about a Xmas message I think I could have saved this one for December, even though Jesus Christ was born in April. They went to Bethlehem. Her Kinsmen Redeemer came to the same place as our Kinsmen Redeemer came, to the “house of God’s bread”, to the city of David. And what did her Kinsmen Redeemer say unto her?

Ruth 2: 8 Then said Boaz unto Ruth, Hearest thou not, my daughter? Go not to glean in another field, neither go from hence, but abide here fast by my maidens: 9 Let thine eyes be on the field that they do reap, and go thou after them: have I not charged the young men that they shall not touch thee? And when thou are athirst, go unto the vessels, and drink of that which the young men have drawn.

My. We are sitting in heavenly places tonight for sure. God is truly present; at least he is here, I hope he is there where you are too. The Bible says that he is closer to us than our own breath. Reach out to him. This manna is from him. These are not my words, they are God’s Words. Do you recognize them? Do you feel His presence? Angels all around. And devils too so be on guard spiritually.

Go not to glean in another field! There is not another message! There is no other messenger! There is not another Bible! There is not another Word of God but this Bible is the only authority and do not go astray from it! Who are the reapers? Angels! Sent to reap the earth. Jesus told us. I hope everyone is getting this. Is this making sense?

Revelation 14: 14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the son of Man, having o his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. 16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. 17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. 18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying Thrust in thy sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. 19 And the Angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the Wrath of God. 20 And the winepress was trodden without the city and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

Boaz said to the men, to the reapers, not to touch Ruth. The Bride was taken by the one on the cloud. We are caught up and meet Him in the clouds. Jesus Christ reaped the Bride personally. Do you see it. Jesus will personally take His Bride away in the rapture, and the world won’t even know it happened. The angels will cast their sickles and reap the earth but the Bride will not be touched for the Groom, the Kinsmen Redeemer, will already have reaped her home himself. She will be safe when the rest of the earth is reaped. Boaz told his young men, his reapers, do not touch that one, she is mine. Do not reap of her for that is for me to do alone.

And Boaz told Ruth that when you get thirsty, drink of the water from the vessels that the young men drew. Drink from the living water. Drink from the water provided by the angels, the Holy Spirit.

St. John 7: 37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink, 38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. 39 But this spake He of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.

Drink from the vessels, from those who have the Holy Spirit. Drink from the five fold ministry. Drink from the testimony of the Bride. Drink from the Message of the Hour. Are we drinking tonight from the Holy Spirit? Rivers of living water are flowing. Did you realize that? Rivers are flowing from the Holy Ghost filled vessels. And the bride is to drink whenever she thirsts from those vessels. That is why we have a ministry. That is why you have a pastor. That is why God does not rapture each person as they receive the Holy Spirit. They are sealed but still they must abide that rivers of living water can flow to the rest of the thirsty Bride. That is why we have the message, to feed and water the bride. That is why we were sent a prophet in our day with the ministry of Elijah to fulfill the prophecies of Malachi 4:5-6 and Revelation 10:7. The Bride is one and the Lord Jesus Christ, our Kinsmen Redeemer, will reap her as one unit. We all go up together, young and old, men, women and children, alive and dead.

Ruth 2:15 And when she was risen up to glean, Boaz commanded his young men, saying, Let her glean even among the sheaves, and reproach her not 16 and let fall also some of the handfuls of purpose for her, and leave them, that she may glean them, and rebuke her not.

Let her, the gentile stranger feed from the Holy Stock, from the Word of God, from heavenly manna. Let that gentile dog eat of the Lord’s bread. We are not fit for it but the grace of God grants it to us. And not only has the Lord God allowed us to feed from His Holy Scriptures, He has commanded that “handfuls of purpose” be left for us to gather.  God didn’t just allow us to look into His Word, He provided messengers to show us what to look into. He purposely sent handfuls of ripe grain to us, laid it right in front of us, and sent his angels to do it. Why do you think the seven church age messengers (Paul, Irenaeus, Columba, Martin, Luther, Wesley, Branham) are called angels? They were sent with “handfuls of purpose” for us! The message of our hour is not by accident. God, in His grace and wisdom, laid every grain of truth in the message in place for us to come along and find. Grain by grain in progressive revelation, each one at the right time in the right order. Every handful in its proper place for the Bride to glean at the proper time and in the proper order. No mistakes. No coincidence. No accidents. God, sovereign and supreme, all knowing, all powerful, all merciful. And he did not tell them to toss a few grains. He told them to provide handfuls of grain. Justification. Sanctification. Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Water Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ. Rapture. The seven seals. Daniel’s seventy weeks. Serpent’s seed. etc etc. Handfuls of seed for us to glean in our time.

And Ruth is told to keep fast by the maidens of Boaz. Most importantly, she is told not to glean in another field. Do not look anywhere else but this blessed revealed word of God for the hour. Do NOT go to any other field. Ruth is safe from the reapers in the field of Boaz, but if she wanders from that field they are free to reap her. And if she wanders, into another field, there are reapers there who do not answer to Boaz.

Wander from this blessed Word of God and you get reaped with the world!

Go into any other field and you will not find the handfuls of purpose. There aren’t any there. You will only find grains of weeds, briars and thorns. Go into any other field and you will be defiled! You will not be fit for your Kinsmen Redeemer. Stay with the maidens of the Master. Stay with the born again, Spirit filled Church of the Living God.

All the maidens belonged to Boaz but only Ruth was taken as a Bride. Only she was redeemed. Boaz did not tell his men to leave handfuls for the other maidens. Did you see that? Only for Ruth! This Message of the Hour is only for God’s Bride. The maidens will glean in the field but only Ruth will find the handfuls left by Boaz and his angels. The Church will all sit and listen to the message but only the Bride will get the spiritual revelation on that message. They will all get grains but She alone gets the handfuls of purpose. But she will only get them IF she stays with the other maidens and IF she stays in the masters field.

Ruth 3: 3 Wash thyself therefore, and anoint thee, and put thy rainment upon thee, and get thee down to the floor; but make not thyself known unto the man, until he shall have done eating and drinking. 4 and it shall be, when he lieth down, that thou shalt mark the place where he shall lie, and thou shalt go in, and uncover his feet, and lay thee down; and he will tell thee what thou shalt do.

Wash yourself! Repent and be baptized by full immersion in water in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins. Look at Acts 2:38-39. That is the only way to get clean. Anoint yourself! Get sanctified. Put on the rainment! Get filled with the Holy Spirit.  Get the wedding garment. Get filled with the Holy Spirit. Then go to the threshing floor. It is harvest time. What did John the Baptist say?

Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance; but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: 12 Whose fan is in his hand and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

The threshing floor is ready. Get yourself ready for it. Uncover His feet. Go to your Kinsmen Redeemer. Worship him. Lay down at his feet. He is God alone. He bled and died for you. He purchased you with his own blood. He will purge the threshing floor. The squeeze is coming where he will fan away all the chaff from the wheat. He will gather His wheat in the garner. He will reap His bride. And the chaff will be reaped for the fire.

The wind is about to shift. Nations are breaking, Israel’s awakening, the signs that the prophet foretold, gentile days numbered with horrors encumbered, return oh lost flock to the fold. When Jesus redeems His bride back, then He goes to take care of Israel.

Ruth 3:17 And she said, These six measures of barley gave he me; for he said to me Go not empty unto thy mother-in-law. 18 then said she, Sit still, my daughter, until thou know how the matter will fall: for the man will not be in rest, until he have finished the thing this day.

This day. Today is the day for there may not be a tomorrow. The very day God redeems His bride is the very day He returns to Israel. Sit still till it be done for He will not rest. Jesus will not rest until every single last sheep is in the fold. He will not rest until his Bride has been redeemed from the earth. And when he is done he will have handfuls of purpose for Israel. God has prepared handfuls of purpose. And how?

Ruth 3: 15 And he said, Bring the veil that thou hast upon thee, and hold it. And when she held it, he measured six measures of barley, and laid it on her: and she went into the city.

Do you see it? Bring the veil. The veil of unbelief that sits over the eyes of Israel. Bring the veil. Remove the veil! And she went INTO THE CITY! I feel like dancing. Do you see it? God will remove the veil from the eyes of Israel and feed them six measures of seed all in one day. And the Bride went into the city. God will rapture the Bride away and remove the veil from the eyes of Israel and feed them measure upon measure of His word. And notice it is not his young men doing it anymore, it is God himself providing the grain.

Ruth 4: 6 And the kinsmen said, I cannot redeem it for myself, lest I mar mine own inheritance: redeem thou my right to thyself; for I cannot redeem it. 7 Now this was the manner in the former time in Israel concerning redeeming and concerning changing, for to confirm all things; a man plucked off his shoe, and gave it to his neighbor: and his was a testimony in Israel. 8 Therefore the kinsman said unto Boaz, Buy it for thee. So he drew off his shoe.

Now let’s turn to Revelation to Chapter 5 verse 7.

Revelation 5: 7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

God could not redeem us. He is spirit and to redeem us our Kinsman Redeemer had to die. God being spirit cannot die. He had no way to make it happen in the office of the Father. So he came in the office of the Son. Jesus, the lamb of God, came and took the book from the right hand of God, and redeemed us back to himself. Boaz typed Christ and the nearer Kinsmen types God. As God the Father and Spirit could not redeem us so to could this man not redeem Ruth. So as Boaz took the shoe from the man, so too did Jesus take the book of redemptions signifying that He was taking the full right of redemption upon Himself redeeming us with His own blood. That was the purchase price.

Ruth 4: 9 And Boaz said   elders, and unto all people, Ye are witnesses this day that I have bought all that was Elimelech’s, and all that was Chilllion’s and Hahlon’s, of the hand of Naomi.

Revelation 5: 8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and the four and twenty elders tell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the saints.

Boaz redeemed all that was for Ruth. Jesus redeemed all that was for the Saints. They both had the elders as witnesses. Notice here that Boaz redeemed that which was for Ruth’s husband but also that which was for Orpah’s husband. Orpah backslid back into idolatry, into denominationalism, dogmas and creeds, back into multiple gods, trinity. She never again was mentioned. When she backslid and rejected to move forward in the Message of her Hour, she died spiritually. When the denominations refused to move forward with the message and turned back to trinity they died spiritually and are never again mentioned in the book of redemption. They had a place. They had an inheritance with the Bride. But they sold out to denomonationalism and lost their inheritance.

Luther was sent with a message and they all came out. Then Wesley was sent with the next message to build upon Luther’s message and some came out. Those who did not, those who were content to go back to their gods, lost their inheritance. Then when the Lord God restored the gifts in 1906 at the Pentecostal Revival, those who refused the gifts lost their inheritance. It was for them. It was given for them and they had every right to take it. Orpah had every right to go back with Ruth and Naomi and claim her inheritance. Esau, the carnal church of his day sold out to carnality. So to did the denomonations in our day. When God sent the Prophet some came but the rest refused to go all the way and turned back to denomonationalism, and died. They lost their inheritance and have no more position. They are chaff to be bundled and burned.

Ruth received all that was for her and all that was for Orpah. The Bride receives all that is for her, plus all that would have been for the carnal, worldly church that backslid and rejected the word of God, the message of the hour. Remember the parable of the rich man and the talents. He said take the one talent from him and give it to the one who has ten. He which has shall be given and to he which hath not even that which he seems to have will be taken away.

The Bride gets it all!

Revelation 5: 9 And they sung a new song saying, Thou are worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people and nation; 10 and hast made us unto our God kings and priests; and we shall reign on the earth.

The Bride doesn’t just live here forever, she reigns forever. She is His Bride! Jesus Christ is the King and She is the Queen. If He is the King of Kings then she is the queen of queens. If He is the king of heaven then she is the queen of heaven. Redeemed from all the earth. She gets it all, heaven and earth. She will sit in His throne with Him. And what did they say of Boaz and Ruth?

Ruth 5:11 And all the people that were in the gate, and the elders said, We are witnesses. The Lord make the woman that is come into thine house like Rachel and like Leah, which two did build the house of Israel: and do thou worthily in Ephratah, and be famous in Behtlehem. 12 And thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which the Lord shall give thee of this young woman.

Like Rachael and Leah who built Israel. Israel, the prince of God and Rachael and Leah his princesses. All of Israel came from them. The nation of promise came through them, of their flesh and blood. The nation of heaven comes from the Bride of Jesus Christ made of her. The royal seed of Christ in His Bride brings forth the fruit of the seed.

And in

Revelation 5: 11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands and thousands; 12 saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. 13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour and glory, and power, but unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14 And the beasts said AMEN! And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

This is not just a type but the type. In detail, God led Ruth and Naomi and Boaz to a life that perfectly typed Christ and the Church. Boaz, as a Kinsmen Redeemer to Ruth, typifies Jesus Christ as the Kinsmen Redeemer to the gentile Bride.

We have gleaned a few handfuls of purpose here. Let’s not lose them. We are to glean only in HIS field, nowhere else is acceptable for only in His field has He lain those handfuls of seed for us, and only in His field are we safe. Leave that field, wander from the Word of God, from the message of the hour, and we run the risk of being defiled.

We are also told to stay with the maidens of Boaz. Stay with the Church. Glean the seed from the word by the message and find those handfuls that He, our Kinsmen Redeemer, has placed there for us. Get ready, Wash yourselves! Anoint yourselves! Put on the wedding garment! Get down to the threshing floor for the time has come for Jesus to separate the wheat from the chaff. Are we wheat? Are we Bride? Are we going to be like Ruth and keep pressing forth looking for our Kinsmen Redeemer or be like Orpah who was content to go back to the gods of the gentiles? If we love the world or the things of the world, then the love of the Father is not even in us.

Have you been gleaning with the maidens in the field? Have you found the handfuls of purpose or do we just have an intellectual understanding and knowledge of quotes? Do we have revelation, or creeds and dogmas? Do we have a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, or a membership in an organization? The handfuls of purpose are there waiting for you. They have been placed by God’s angels. Revelation is waiting for you Ruth! Get to you master! Go to your Kinsmen Redeemer. The harvest is ripe, Jesus is coming on that cloud with a sharp sickle, the Word of God, to reap His Bride away. You don’t want to be left for the other reapers. They reap the weeds and the thistles and cast them into the fire. We want to be Bride, not chaff, not thistles. We want to be Ruth, not Orpah.

Your Kinsmen Redeemer awaits.
