Praise the Lord. Hallelujah.

Father we bless You, we thank You for the opportunity to be counted worthy to come into Your presence. Lord we thank You for the precious blood of Jesus, the very precious blood of Jesus, that sacrifice that You give to us. We want to say that we do not take it lightly, for we were sick, bleeding and dying and You reached down and You came to us right where we were. Lord we want to thank You for saving us, we want to thank You for all that You have done for us. Lord we thank You for the sweetness of brotherly fellowship, of the unity in the Spirit. Lord we bless You for what it is that is on Your heart and where You want to take Your people to.

Lord as we sang that song “At this midnight hour, when You come looking for a bride”, it is our prayer and our cry that there will be oil in our lamps. Not only in our lamps, but that there be oil in our vessels and that we will be ready.

We ask Lord that You might cause Your Spirit to flow, to come down to us, to bring fresh oil, to bring a fresh anointing, do something new in our midst. We ask Lord that You would touch us, touch us one more time O Lord. We need a touch of the Master. We need Your touch Lord. We need a refreshing from Your presence. We need an empowerment.

We ask Lord that You might sanctify our hearts, that You might circumcise our ears. We come against every covering, every contrary spirit, every distraction. We ask Lord that Your Word, that which You have will be bread to the eater and will be seed to the sower. Blessed be the name of the Lord.

Father that You might instruct us, that You might teach us, that the man of God may be truly furnished to receive Your rebuke, Your correction and Your instruction and Your direction. Lord we bless Your name. Thank You in the name of Jesus. Amen. Amen.

It is a very big opportunity for me to be here. You may not know how important it is for me. I am a bit emotional. I hope you don’t mind if I am crying. In Africa good men don’t cry. I’m not good. I remember many years ago (I told Brother Burt or Brother Peter, I don’t know who it was.) I think it was in the summer of 1986.

They were saying, “We would like you to come to Mahomet.”

That was in 1986 and it was then impossible to come. Hallelujah.

Lord Jesus, Lord we thank You. Lord we thank You for giving us these brethren and for causing them to be such a blessing to us. Lord we just ask that You might bless them. Thank You for causing them to be such a strength to us. Thank You for giving us direction in the way that we should go. Bless Your name Lord.

You say, …he that watereth shall be watered also… (Proverbs 11:25).

We just ask Lord that You bring fresh waters. Open our souls, that as the rivers flow in the dry places You will do something new O Lord. Thank You Lord Jesus. Amen.

I would like to read some scriptures from 2nd Corinthians Chapter 4. I’m very sorry for taking your time. 18While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

The other scripture is in 1st Corinthians 6, reading from verse 12: All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. Verse 13 is of interest, it says: Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them…. That is 1st Corinthians Chapter 6, verse 13. Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

Some of the thoughts that are expressed may not be very palatable to us. But the thing is that the things that are important to us are not important to God. Those of us who are married, we have our wives and the wives have their husbands. God also needs a wife. So as a wife is personal to you, that is how it is with God. You know, so the things that we do and that we are doing (church business) for us it erupts differently. You know, it is a good time to fellowship with the brethren. If you don’t have a car, God can buy a car for you. If you don’t have a job, God can give you a job. If you have problems, God can sort it out for you. So the scripture says: Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats:  The truth of the matter  is as Brother Paul said, If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable (1 Corinthians 15:19). Some of the things that I hear God saying really brings us to that point – that we are in danger of being labeled as a miserable people. Not because we intend to be miserable, but because of our perspective and attitude to life and to the things of God. In this scripture it says the body is…for the Lord and of course it says the Lord for the body.

The other day God was saying to me, “Marriage is a privilege. It is a privilege because I am giving to you my body to have fellowship with for some time.”

But we take it for granted: you take your husband for granted; you take your wife for granted.

But God is saying, “Be very careful because that person is the Lord’s body and whatever you do to that person you are doing to the Lord.” You can also translate it to the fellowship, to brethren as He said to Paul, “You are kicking against the pricks” (Acts 9:5).

Now the body was made by the Lord for Himself and the time has come for us to begin to come into the right perspective of what God is saying to His people and what He expects of us. He says that the things which are seen, the world we see around us, they are just temporary. The things that are real are the things we are not even aware of. While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).

While we were out traveling I got a rude shock.  I think I shared it with the brethren in London and what I am talking about this afternoon. I got a text message and God began to speak to me. In the text message you have voice. In the text message you have data. In the text message you have visuals. You know, they call it multi-media. I didn’t see the text message coming, but I was able to receive something, voice, audio.

God said, “The people of God have chosen to remain where we are and while we are there the world is becoming spiritual.”

The world of ICT (Information Communications Technology) is based upon spiritual principles. We all use cell-phones, but those wave lengths don’t touch us. You don’t get hit by all of those things, but they are all around. If you put on a television set you will probably hear Obama speaking. Isn’t that so? Now those voices, those words, those pictures are all in this room. But you see, for we as a people it is very convenient for us to put that aside, to use it outside the church. But when it comes to the things of God we switch OFF. Hallelujah. Those are the things that the Devil is using to attack us. We have lost our children. Okay, maybe, let me put it this way: We are losing our children.

God said to me, “You are telling cock and bull stories.”

You are telling children, “Don’t steal” at home. They see fallen activity on the internet. When they think of the internet they are excited. When they think of the things of God they say:

“It is so dull.”

You know, “It is mommy’s church.”

“It is daddy’s church.”   

They come with you, but while they are in church they are on the internet. They are actually opening their computer. They are sitting down in church, but they are working at home. Some of those of us who are here now: we are probably cooking at home; we are probably doing dishes at home; we are planning what we are going to do after the camp meetings.

The truth of the matter is that the church is disconnected with God or from God. The church is disconnected from the reality of the time.

Because of that, many are sick. I’m very sorry, but I have to say, many are falling asleep and some have fallen asleep (1 Corinthians 11:30).

God is saying, “We need to wake up!”

So I am going to ask you to forgive me. I am going to be direct. Some of the brethren know that I can be direct. Amen. Just pray for me. I don’t really mean any harm, it is just that I have heard some things and it is my responsibility to tell you. Some of the things I need to even sit down and listen to them because it is more for me than probably for you. I have issues, I am really not there at all.

While I was in London last year God began to speak to me. God was speaking about the end time church.  

God was saying, “The end time church are confused.”

We have two lives. Okay, not really two lives. God said, “It is either you are hot or you are cold” (Revelation 3:15-16;). “But the end time church has chosen to be hot and cold.” God said, “The people who are hot and cold – you are actually cold.”

The Bible says either you are darkness or you are light. The end time church has chosen to be both, to stand in the middle. If you are a little bit dark, it is still darkness. If it is not light, then you are not light. He was talking about Elijah who told the people,  …How long (why) halt ye between two opinions?… (1 Kings 18:21). So we are in a place where we want to go forward, but at the same time we really want to stay where we are. That is that we want the things of the world. We love the world. I love the world, I don’t know about you. But God is showing me something and I am seeing pictures and I am hearing voices. I am receiving data – I am seeing visuals from God and I also want that.

God is saying, “You can’t have both.”

As I look around, I see that my brethren are right in the same situation as I found myself. That is that we want to go forward and we also want to go back at the same time. So we find that we are a people that are between and betwixt. That we have come out of the outer court, but the outer court is not the destination. There is a destination and for that destination we are not ready.

God used a very hard word for me. He said, “You are a Sadducee.”  

God told me I am a Sadducee. Well the Pharisees believed that there are spirits and that there is a resurrection. The Sadducees don’t believe any of them, they don’t believe in the resurrection and they are afraid of spirits. And God told me that I am a Sadducee.

Well I preach resurrection, I believe it. But the thing is that that belief is in my head.

God said to me, “If you believe resurrection then you would be ready to change.”  

The man that believes resurrection is the man that is ready to change. His life is ready to change, ready to lose his life. Hallelujah.

God said to me, “You are not ready.”

In fact, not just me, He clearly said you too.

He said, “The end time church is not ready to change.”

Hallelujah. So we have come out of the outer court and we have gotten into the vail and we have turned back.

In the soul Elijah had issues. He said, …How long (why) halt ye between two opinions?… (1 Kings 18:21). But that is not really what I heard, what I heard.

I heard, God said, there is a sound of abundance of rain (1 Kings 18:41). That is what God said, He said, “Rain is coming. There is visitation that is coming.”

But the truth of the matter is that not everyone will be a part of that visitation. There is a qualification and there is a measurement. Hallelujah. I want to talk about what the Lord has been speaking since then and I can testify that there is a visitation of God that is coming.

Looking at Elijah’s story one of the things that he had to do was to rebuild the altar. The altar was broken down. One of the basic things that he had to do was to rebuild the altar. When he rebuilt the altar the fire came down, then the rain also came.

We are in the time of midnight and you better believe this, it is going to get worse. Of course people say that we are always saying it is going to get worse. It is worse this year than last year. The months ahead are going to be dark days. I am not trying to frighten you, but the reality is that dark days are ahead. But the end time church is not aware of that, because if we were aware that there is going to be destruction then this would be a war conference. This would be a war conference, it would be a boot camp. We would be here to learn: principles of warfare; principles of survival; principles of understanding the strategies of the enemy; principles of being ahead and being in the position where we would not just be defensive, but we would be offensive. We would be the ones in a sense that the gates of hell will not prevail! We are at the gates of hell. The gates of hell are in that cell phone that you have, they are in the mind and the emotions, in your desires and in your will, those are the gates of hell. Hallelujah.

I want to talk a little bit about that dimension. Brother duCille spoke so much about it. I hear so much about it as he talked on the old tapes and in the old texts, because at that time he lived and talked on some of those basics. But you know we have a way of growing out of the heavy things, so with time we have gotten used to some of those things, so we have gone to more familiar, more comfortable grounds. Then the foundations we will find that we have lost. Hallelujah.

I want us to look at the scripture Hebrews Chapter 6. Some of the things I want to talk about are very basic things. I’m sure you know them, but I just want to talk about them. Hebrews Chapter 6 talks about the foundational doctrines of Christ. I want to look at the 2nd verse at the one he calls the laying on of hands. Hebrews Chapter 6:

1Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.    

It is important to come to these basics because of the more serious issues that are built on these basics.

Somebody says, “You don’t live in the foundation. You live in the house, the house has the foundation.”

But if the foundations are removed then the house cannot stand. So if you are going to war, then we have to check our foundations. Then we have to make sure that the house, that we can make adjustments. So I really want to encourage us to be ready to make adjustments, because there are adjustments to make.

Now looking at laying on of hands and I am looking at coverings, the principle of coverings. Hands speak of ministry, I am sure we all know that. But in a much more important dimension we are looking at the coverings that are over us, more importantly the coverings over the soul of man. That takes us to another scripture, 2nd Samuel Chapter 22. [We are going to look at a lot of scriptures, when I get less nervous I will move faster. It is not easy to minister to those who have ministered to you, those who brought you up. Amen.] 2nd Samuel Chapter 22, verse 6:

I study a lot of Hebrew and Latin because they bring the depth of the Word. So I want us to do some word study.

Verse 6 says: The sorrows of hell compassed me about; the snares of death prevented me; So when you look at that scripture ordinarily, I mean it is a casual scripture. The Hebrew word for sorrow is (#2256) chebel “kheh’-bel”. Now the word translated for sorrow means rope. The word translated as the sorrows of hell means: rope or chord; a measuring line; a band; a region; a company; (America; Nigeria; Kenya;) destruction; (Mahomet;) region. Hallelujah.

Now we have the impression that hell is very far away.  You know:

“When I die I will go to heaven very far away.”

“Those who are unbelievers, when they die, they go to hell, also very, very far away.”

NOW THAT IS A LIE OF THE DEVIL and that is why we are Sadducees. That is why we don’t want to change, because it is very comfortable. Hallelujah. But that is the opposite of reality.

Now it says that “the ropes of hell compassed me about”. Now the word (for hell) <sh@’owl> means “sheh-ole’” and it means the regions of the dead. Okay, but that is a very polite way of putting it.

You can say, Brother Cec would have said, “It is the region of disembodied spirits.”  

I said that you could have said that. If you accept that it is the realm of disembodies spirits, then that becomes very wide. Hallelujah. But I will even make it wider. I will say it is the realm in which rebellious spirits dwell. Every rebellious spirit, that is where God (in His mercy) will allow them to be, because they cannot take in the kingdom of God, they cannot dwell in light. So God will allow them to go and to dwell in that realm of darkness, lawlessness, wickedness, destruction, ruin, disease, sickness. This is admission that they are around us. Hallelujah. Amen.

Now to move faster, the scripture says, …thou has delivered my soul from the lowest hell (Psalm 86:13). Is that in the scriptures? Is that in the scriptures?


“Thou hast delivered me from the lowest hell,” meaning that there is also a highest hell. That is the English language, isn’t that so. Am I still in order? Of course I have to be in order because there is a lowest heaven and then highest heaven. Hallelujah. So we have the outer court, the holy place, and the holiest of all. Hallelujah.

Now Paul says that we are seated in Christ where? …in heavenly places…(Ephesians 2:6).

“In heavenly places.”

Okay, so you are the ones that are preaching now. So if you are seated in Christ in heavenly places – it is also possible for you to be seated in hellish places. Hallelujah. As a matter of a fact, when a man is born, he is born into hell. He is born into a realm of hell, the lowest hell. One thing about the outer court, what the outer court really is, is a reception of those who are being delivered from hell, that is the first place that they come to. So the outer court is the closest dimension of heaven that is in communion with hell, with the lowest hell. Hallelujah. In other words, when it is 6:00 PM – well in Africa it is maybe 6:00 PM and around here it may be 8:00 or 9:00 PM – there is something that must happen. Darkness begins to come and overtake the outer court. The scripture says that “Hell hath enlarged her borders”. Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without measure:…. (Isaiah 5:14). Hell is enlarging its borders and it is swallowing. Hallelujah. Amen. Can you say, “Amen”?


Hallelujah. Now I am looking at something. Let’s look at Acts Chapter 2. I am just trying to establish some of the principles, then we can move a bit forward. Acts Chapter 2, 26Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope: 27Becuase thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Okay, let’s read down a bit to verse 30 and 31. It says: 30Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne: 31He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, (He is trying to explain what the resurrection of Christ is.) that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.  

Resurrection is not resurrection if it does not affect the soul. When you say the soul, it is very fine, you can’t relate to soul. When it does not affect my manner of thinking; when it does not affect my response; when someone mashes on me, steps on me, says something evil about me (hallelujah) resurrection begins to speak. Hallelujah. Now Christ in His soul had to go that He might deliver us. He went to the lowest hell, He went down. Hallelujah. He partook of that nature that He might bring deliverance to us.

The resurrection speaks of a change that must come in the realm of the soul. Now that we have said that we can make progress. Resurrection means change and that change must be progressive. That is, if I am where I was one month ago, or a year ago, or ten years ago, or twenty years ago, that means that there is a problem and that is why God says that we are Sadducees. If we really believe in resurrection then we should be a people that are changing and we should be changing …from glory to glory… (2 Corinthians 3:18). Hallelujah. Now if we take that then it would be safe to say that Adam fell in three dimensions. The fall of Adam, the death of Adam was in three dimensions, therefore the salvation of man will also be in three dimensions. In other words the resurrection, the manifestation of resurrection, the experience of resurrection has to be in three dimensions. Hallelujah.

When the God was speaking to me, I always ask questions. The Bible says, If we walk in the light, as he is in the light… (1 John 1:7). Where is our fellowship? In light. Hallelujah. Amen. Now Adam walked in the realm of light. Hallelujah. Adam walked in the realm of light. Adam did not need cotton like me. He didn’t need to eat food. He didn’t need to do those other things that we have to do. Today they say I am a Doctor and I have to do this and that. Now those are the result of an event. It is a distraction, it is not the real issue. That is why it says, Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: (1 Corinthians 6:13).

Now if my vision is to be a good wife, have children, drive cars around, picking children up from school, dropping them off at school, they go to the university, they come out, they marry, they have children, I’ll be a grandmother. That is a miserable life.

Okay, they say I’m a Doctor. Every day I go to this, I read this, I do this, as a professor I do this. At the end of the day I walked into the University Senate and I saw old men that are professors.

So I say unto God, “You mean in the next 20 years I will be like them?” I said, “That is not the way I am going to go.” I told God, I said, “That is not where I am going to go to.”

Hallelujah. Brethren, if our goal is a good life, peace and prosperity, tranquility?  America has a good President. In Nigeria we are doing well. We have roads, you know. We have everything. Africa is progressing and developing and all that. That is a miserable life. Hallelujah.

So if we are concerned about politics and government and international trading and  international relations and the space program, ALL THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PURPOSE OF GOD. Hallelujah. Amen.

He says, …Make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them (Exodus 25:8).

If I may tease you a bit? God is one that dwelleth where? Between the wings of the Cherub. Hallelujah. Brethren there is a standard. IF WE DON’T MEET THAT STANDARD THEN WE DON’T QUALIFY.

God dwells between the wings of the Cherubim. There is a nature that we must have in our soul. Now the Devil can get you running all over the place making money, having a good time. For the young people, I have a burden for them. I have four young people in my house and you know, we have to contend with them. Young people are distracted by computers, by cell phones, by i-pods, i-pod 4 – i-pod 5 is coming. Before that one comes, i-pod 6 will come.

We are not addressing the matter of the soul. The Bible says, We are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe (of those who go on) to the saving of the soul (Hebrews 10:39). Now how can the soul be saved from the course of hell when there is no definite action being taken to deliver the soul. Hallelujah.

God has a program to save the soul. If I want to go to Bloomington, there is a road to Bloomington. If I get onto another road to Farmer City or somewhere, I am not going to get there. The truth of the matter is that the church is heading the wrong direction and we will never get to the point of the salvation of the soul. So we as a people, we have to decide where we are headed? The eldership must decide. The brethren must decide. Why I know there is a problem is because we are not talking about it? It is not a burden. We got saved and He made an impact in our lives, but it is not a matter of life and death. Because God knows that it is not a matter of life and death He is really not bothering us. So He can’t give all the things to us that He would normally have given to us, because it is not our heartbeat.

I believe that there is a time of visitation that is coming to us as a people.

So here he says that the resurrection of Christ was that He was not going to leave His soul in hell. Hallelujah. He was not going to leave it in that realm and the things that bind him that have kept him in that situation.

Let’s look at 2nd Corinthians Chapter 3 talks about Moses and the Law. It says that when the Law is read, the vail is over their heart. 15But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. 16Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away.

Now the Bible says in Matthew 27, when it was midnight, so that He gave up the ghost. What happened in the temple? Brethren, it is possible to be an Old Testament Christian in the dispensation of the New. I don’t know if you understand? There was a man called Isaiah, he was a New Testament Christian in the dispensation of the Old. He lived ahead of his time. But you in this time, you can also operate in the time of the Old when you ought to be operating under the laws and the principles of the New Testament. There is a hallmark of the New and that is that the vail must be broken. If the vail is not broken then it is the Old. Hallelujah.

Okay, you all agree with that?


Amen. The difference between the Old and the New put in summary is that the vail has been removed. We see that in the tabernacle of David, isn’t that so. It says that “this is the tabernacle of David that is fallen down, that I am going to restore it” (Acts 15:16). Hallelujah. But David has this tabernacle in the Old Testament. Even though he was living in that dispensation he was partaking of an experience that actually belonged to a time that was yet to come as a prophetic declaration that it is possible to walk in it. Hallelujah. Yes, we talk about the tabernacle and the holy place and all like that. You know, you talk about the vail. That is true.

But in reality what does Hebrews say? 19Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, (by the blood of the Lamb), 20(He has made) a new and living way… to enter into the holiest of all (Hebrews 10:19-20;). Now if in your mind you are thinking that the holiest of all is something that you will enter in 2015…but that is our attitude. That is a great error. Some are entering in and I am determined to be a part of that company that are entering in.  God is calling us to enter in, not tomorrow, but NOW. Hallelujah. Why? Because the vail has been broken. The problem I know is that we have not broken through our own vails. They are two different things. Christ broke through His own vail as an example that we also must break through our own vails.

So if you are here playing religion, dancing around, this is beyond that. It is a matter of breaking through the vail. You are not a New Testament Christian until you have broken through. Okay, that is a bit hard. That is a sweeping statement. Hallelujah. I will say it in a minute. 

I went to Israel. I was there Brother Burt. I went to the temple mount twice. I was there on Yom Kippur, that is October 10th. I was there. I was at the temple and I was observing them. (I think it began on the Wednesday before I left.) Jesus was not a Levite. He was not, is not a Levite. Hallelujah.

Now, you are not a Levite except you are the son of Levi. The priests were those who were sons. Those who were from that tribe ministered, but those who were priests had to be sons of Aaron. Jesus did not enter the holy place, He couldn’t enter the holy place because His own priesthood was not according to that Old Testament order. Yes. So He didn’t bother, He didn’t struggle to enter in. Hallelujah.

He said, “I will make you a priesthood according to the order of Melchisedec” (Hebrews 7:11).

The entering according to God, God says that we are confused. We don’t know what priesthood to follow. Are we following Aaron? Or are we following Christ?

Now to break it down a bit, in John Chapter 2, Jesus did not wait for long. Right from the beginning He told them, 19…Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. 21But he spake of the temple of his body. So right from the beginning of John He was already declaring that there was something new that He was bringing. The temple and the priesthood and whatever He was doing was something New – different from what had been in the Old. Hallelujah.

So in the church today we have a mixture in our minds and in our practice and  I’m very sorry to say, in our structures of the church. Hallelujah. God has been saying to me that He has tolerated it for some time, He has allowed.

This mixture has gone on for long and God is saying, “I will no longer support it.”  

Hallelujah. So if you have Old Testament structures in your fellowship, you are going to have trouble in the flesh. Hallelujah. Okay, I will say that again. If we have, (I know that in my fellowship we have and as I look around I see things,) we are going to have trouble in the flesh – because the economy of God will no longer sustain that. It is a wastage to Him. Hallelujah. I mean, why would you spend you money supporting something that is of no use to you? Hallelujah.

Who is God’s temple? Okay, can I ask another question? Who is the priest under this New Dispensation? So when we say “we” you are really not sure what I am teaching? I am a teacher so don’t mind me, I like to zero in. So who is the priest in this New Dispensation? I am hearing Christ. Who is the priest in the New Testament?

“We are.”

When we say “we” what does we mean? Okay then, I will ask you a question? Is it my leg that is the priest? Is it my leg or is it my hand that is the priest? Which part of me is the priest? OUR MIND. But when we come to fellowship we leave our minds at home. The priest is at home and the carcass is at church. The priest is watching a ball game in New York, but his body is here. The emotions, we quarrel with our emotions. It says, “If an animal has been torn by a wild beasts, don’t bring it as an offering.” Isn’t that so? We are caught with emotions that are battered and quarrelling and telling one another and we are bringing that as an offering. This only gets in the way. So the instructions that we have cannot sustain us in this midnight. The Devil knows that and that is why he is confident that he is going to beat us. If we would put our act in order – the Devil would not stand one hour. He would not, because there is so much power that we would have.

There are scriptures that say that there was a man that was armed for war, but on the day of battle he was weak. We are being armed for war. We know what to do but we can’t function because of our structures, our practices, our attitudes. The things that we do are outdated, outmoded, old fashioned. Hallelujah.  So God is asking for repentance. We have to dismantle the structures.

God asked me a question. He said, “What is Babylon?”

What is Babylon? What is Babylon? When you leave the Assemblies of God Church and then you come to Mahomet, the Assemblies of God Church is now Babylon. Isn’t that so? When you leave the First Southern Baptist Church in Alabama and then you come to Mahomet, you have left Babylon. Isn’t that so? Hallelujah. There was a time that was acceptable. Isn’t that so? It was acceptable at the time, but not anymore. Hallelujah.

The definition of Babylon has changed, it has not really changed, it has progressed. What will now be the new definition of Babylon? Revelation Chapter 18, can we read Revelation 18, verse 2 and 3. 2And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. I wonder if we go on further? That is Babylon. Babylon is your soul and my soul. When it is the habitation of spirits, that is Babylon. Hallelujah. Babylon is not a geographical location, it is the state of my heart. It is what the kind of spirits are that are dwelling in your heart that determine if your heart is Babylon or not. Hallelujah.

When I asked God, He showed me a scripture. It is really frightening. 43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man… Hallelujah. I am hearing very little “hallelujahs” here. Amen. 43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, (Let’s not even talk about the man, we will come back to it.) he walketh through dry places, (He uses a very important word) seeking rest, and findeth none. 44Then he saith, I will return into my house… (Matthew 12).

I said, “God, can you imagine you being the house?”

God said, “The soul is the home of idols.”

The soul is the home of idols.

I said, “The idol that you see is the manifestation of what is in the man’s heart, isn’t that so?”

He takes a lump of clay and He shapes it. He is expressing what is within him. It is a reflection of what is in his soul.  

He said, “There are two things and They created them.”

Then they …became vain in their imaginations… (Romans 1:21). Isn’t that so? Hallelujah.  

So God is saying that we have to change our operations, our understanding. He is saying, “COME OUT OF BABYLON!”

It is a word I am hearing again brethren. It is a word we need to go to back again? Hallelujah. I think we are too many. If that Word comes again then we can tame down a bit. J  Hallelujah. What do we really want? Do we want the salvation of the soul? Or do we want blessings? Hallelujah.

The soul is a captive of spirits. When Adam fell he came into the realm of rebellious spirits. That is what Psalm 18 says, He says that “The dogs have taken hold of my soul.” He said, “O Lord deliver my darling from the snare of the dogs” (Psalm 22:20). Hallelujah.

When a man is born, his soul is born into the realm of darkness and that soul must be saved. Hallelujah. It must be brought out, but if you bring the soul out without changing the nature of the soul – then you haven’t really don’t anything. Therefore He said, …I will make a new covenant… (Jeremiah 31:31). And …I will put my law in their inward parts… (Jeremiah 31:33).

God is saying, “I will change them from within.”


I was walking on the street about a month ago. I had to go buy a small notebook because sometimes when I go by tube or by train I begin to get some Words (from the Lord) and I try to write them so that I don’t forget.

God said, “My kingdom is within you” (Luke 17:21).

The kingdoms that outside, God is limited in what He can do now. I know that you will not agree with that, but when Jesus was going to cast out those creatures, what did they say to Him? …art thou come hither to torment us before the time? (Matthew 8:29). The world is going to go down. Wickedness is going to increase. God intervenes when the wickedness is very bad, He has to cut it short. BUT this is the hour of darkness given and authorized to the Devil because he says he is the king of this world.

It is not to say that we don’t have a responsibility. We do. But you see, how can you bind a spirit that you submit to? 

So we are born into the kingdom of the Devil. Hallelujah. We come under the curse: the regions; the nations; the tribes; the divisions. You know, he uses different machinations. Some of us are caught by one fancy or another. He comes different, differently.  All he does is to bind the people.   

God has His own way of bringing deliverance. What does He do? To go into the heart.

So He says, “My kingdom, My dominion is within you” (Luke 17:21).

Hallelujah. So if God comes to a man and that man accepts Him – then God goes in and begins to build His kingdom. But that man must come out of the outward kingdom. Hallelujah. So you are “in the world but you are not of the world” (John 17:14). Hallelujah. So because we are in their territory, of whose dominion we are not, we must “give to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and then give to God the things that are God’s” (Matthew 22:21). When there is a conflict it is very clear who is going to have dominion, we will have dominion to the nation of which we are. Hallelujah.  

So God is saying that we must understand what He is doing. The world has to go dark because midnight, the darkness must come to the full. If darkness does not come to the full then God cannot judge it. What God is doing, as darkness is going to the full, He is working within His people to also come into the full. As the people of God begin to rise, at the point of midnight that light in the people will be released and that is what is going to bring a judgment and a check to the dominion of darkness. Hallelujah.

We saw that in Egypt, is it not so. Pharaoh, if you know what Pharaoh was, you can look at the history and read all the things about it. These guys, the things we see now, we are no match. Pharaoh ruled greater domains. Can you imagine Greece going bankrupt that once ruled the world. Hallelujah. Amen. God brought Egypt to its knees. God broke the spine of Egypt. Hallelujah. They were completely devastated. If it would have had the second earthquake in Japan it would have been bankrupt. If there were a second earthquake the week after – Japan would have gone under. Hallelujah.

So you see, God is not really interested in those dominions. He is interested in the kingdom that is within us. But the people of God, we are still sleeping. So what we are saying brethren is that there is something that God is doing. There is a NEW KINGDOM, there is a NEW TESTAMENT, there is a NEW PRIESTHOOD that is coming forth and God is asking His people to come into the holiest of all.

We must leave this realm, you know these experiences that we have known. The pentecostal system really is a temporary situation, it is a temporary arrangement. It is the second feast, there is a real feast which is part of what I am trying to figure out how to introduce. Hallelujah. Let me quickly try to get to the meat of where I am going to.

I am concerned with the change, this change that is to take place in the soul, how is it going to be? How will it work? How will it function? Hallelujah. In Genesis Chapter 1, the best way that I can explain it is to say: When God made Adam He said, …Let us make man in our (own) image, after our (own) likeness… (verse 26). The question is what is the image and likeness of God? What is the image and likeness of God? …God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). Hallelujah. …God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. When God made the soul He did not make the soul to be independent of the spirit. The heavens water the earth. Hallelujah. Okay, there is meaning for that. The heavens water the earth. The earth cannot function without that which comes from the heavens. Hallelujah. So when God made Adam He made him in a certain nature. God did not make the soul to function the way it is now functioning. Hallelujah. Hallelujah. He said, “In our own image”, in His own likeness (Genesis 1:26).

If you look at Ezekiel Chapter 1, it gives us some indication as to what this change will be. You can summarize it that it showed the four creatures. It said they had the nature of light.

Now if you go to Proverbs 20:27 it says that the spirit of man is the candle, or the lamp – giving light is the candle of the Lord, or the lamp of the Lord giving light to the inward parts of the belly, or the soul. Hallelujah. But you see to understand that you need to go back to Genesis. What was it that happened in Genesis? The Bible says that God took a lump of clay, which is earth, the ground, you know, <adamah> [Hebrew 0127] (Genesis 2:7). Hallelujah. Then He breathed into it, there was a breath that came from God. We are the earth. (Sorry, you know I can’t learn some of the phonetics so just be patient with me please. I’m really trying to make sure you can understand. I think I’m really doing great – thank you. J) So we are the earth made with the heaven, a new reality came into being and that is you. Hallelujah.

The soul of man has two natures, heavenly and earthly. Hallelujah. In fact the word translated breath, there are two types of breath. There is animate breath and what the Bible would call inanimate breath. The air is inanimate breath. It is this air, this breath that you see that gives life to the plants and all like that. It gives life, it waters it and causes it to grow. Hallelujah. But there is the breath of God that is within us. Or you can take it that goes into the animals. Animals also have soul, but a lower dimension of soul. In fact there are three dimensions of the soul. The first one is that which you find among beasts which the Greeks will call <phusikos>. Now the second one is what you call the living soul, isn’t that so. But there is the real one, the real one is pneumatical, the spiritual soul. Hallelujah.   

  1. Beast soul
  2. Living soul
  3. Spiritual soul

Now 1st Corinthians 15 says something. It says 49(If) we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. That earthy means <psuche> [Gr. 5590] which is the first realm and dimension of soul. It says, so must we also bear the image of the heavenly. Hallelujah. So there are two types of dimensions of spiritual of soulishness, the first level and then the second level.

As Brother Cec would say, “The Adamic man is in hell, but Adam is in heaven.”

Do you understand that? The Adamic man is in hell and is going to hell, but Adam his brother is in heaven. Hallelujah.

The purpose of the gospel brethren is to cause us to change. It is to bring about a change in the nature of our soul. Hallelujah.

Now this natural soul dwells on the carnal level. It feeds on carnal things. But the real soul does not receive life but from the Spirit. It feeds on the light of God. It feeds on the energy of God. So for instance, what gives us energy when we watch a football match? So for instance what gives us energy when we hurt someone? When we speak evil against someone? We are actually feeding on darkness. That is the low dimension of soul.

That is what Brother Cec would call, “Low-patch, low-bite.”

Isn’t that so? 

He says, “Low-patch, low-bite.”

For a long time we have specialized on low-bite. Hallelujah.

God is saying that, “If we have borne the image of the first Adam, we must also bear the image of the second Adam.”

Now God explained it to me in a way. He said, “Man is a spectrum.”

<Protos> [Gr. 4413] Adam, that is the first Adam and <eschatos> [Gr. 2078] Adam, that is the last Adam. In between you determine where you will reach.

So it says, …one star differeth from another star in glory (1 Corinthians 15:41). Hallelujah.

The end time church is being put on the spot. We are on the spot. Which kind of nature do we want? It is either the lower nature or the nature of Christ. Now the nature of Christ is a nature that is fed, nourished, directed by the Spirit. Now those living creatures, it says that they will not move except by the Spirit (Ezekiel 1:20). Where ever the Spirit of God will go, they will go. When it will lift up, they will lift up. When it will go this way, they will go this way. Hallelujah.

Brother Cec would tell us that, “We must walk by the Spirit.”

But you see, now where we are is not only a matter of opinion or suggestion, it is a matter of life and death. The sons of God are those that are led, nourished and you know, encouraged to walk in the realm of the Spirit (Romans 8:14).

Now when the soul of man fell he didn’t have access to the life of God. Hallelujah. Because he didn’t have access to the life of God, what could he do? He began to function independently of God. Hallelujah.

Adam actually took part in a coo. Yes, Adam took part in a coo. Yes, there was a coo, there was a rebellion in heaven and Adam was part of it. He (Satan) said, …ye shall be as gods… (Genesis 3:5).

Brethren the issue that God has with the end time church is the issue of self. Self, that is the issue, self. You can pray from today until the end of December and if we do not address the matter of self – then we cannot measure up. Self is the greatest threat to God and it must be laid down before God. Hallelujah. So Paul says, …..Yet not I, (no longer I) but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live…I live by the faith of the Son of God…(Galatians 2:20).

Now God is not going to entrust you into this new priesthood until He is ensured, until He is satisfied that you will no longer partake in another coo. I don’t know if you got that? God will not bring you into this new dimension of priesthood until He is sure, until He is secured in His mind that you will not partake in another insurrection, because self is a god. It says that (antichrist) …he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God (2 Thessalonians 2:4). Where is the temple of God? Here! sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Brethren, that is the problem that I have and God says that we must deal with that matter. Hallelujah. The Bible says that, we all, with open face beholding…the glory of the Lord…are changed…by the Spirit of the Lord (2 Corinthians 3:18). Now how can you be changed by a Spirit you resist? Hallelujah. We cannot be changed by a spirit we are resisting. So if we resist the Spirit, if we quench the Spirit then we will be unchanged, then we will be rejected and God will choose another. Hallelujah.

Now in the Old Testament Aaron had to be consecrated. Did you see Aaron automatically begin to function in priesthood? He had to be washed. He had to be dedicated. He had to be consecrated. Above all that they had to put oil over him. Brethren there must be the oil, the anointing of our souls. Our mind must be anointed. Hallelujah. Now how will it be anointed if we are not walking in that process?  There must be a consecration of the soul and our mind must be consecrated as a priest.

Esther didn’t just wake up and walk to the king. It was twelve months, six months with sweet odors, six months with bitterness, sorrows, with oil of myrrh. There was a dealing within her, within her nature and person before she could be presented unto Christ. Hallelujah.

God is calling the end time church to a place of atonement, because on the day of atonement you must begin to break up the soul; you must begin to afflict the soul; you must break up the soul. You must not do any servile work.

I asked God, “What is this servile work?”

He said, “It is feeding spirits, giving life to spirits, unclean spirits.”

Those spirits that we have lodged within us, we are feeding them and they are growing big. Hallelujah.

He said, “On the day of Atonement it will no longer be permitted.”

Hallelujah. Brethren, where we are now you cannot feed these wrong spirits. If you have a wrong spirit you must get it out. If you don’t get it out you will be disqualified. It says, “Whosoever will not atone for his soul”, what will happen to him? He will be cut off. There is going to be a separation brethren. I didn’t say division, but there is going to be a separation. Hallelujah.

He said, “The sons of Zadok, put them aside, but the other ones, they shall minister to the people” (References: Ezekiel 44:15,11;). Hallelujah. Amen. Priesthood is by birth: you must be born of the flesh, or born of the spirit, before you can become a priest. Hallelujah. Priesthood is by birth. A child that is born in the natural must break through the matrix, is it not so. So if you are also going to be a priest then you must also break through the spirits that are covering the soul. If you don’t break through you cannot. You must break through the covering of carnality; the covering of uncleanness. In the dimensions of the mind or emotion, those coverings we must break through. If my mind is to be able to bring an offering to God then we must break through the coverings over the mind.

The Bible says that Melchizedek is a priesthood without beginning, without end (Hebrews 7:3). It is a priesthood of the Spirit. Hallelujah. So the priesthood that God is bringing has nothing to do with: where you are born; who your father is; who your mother is; your circumstance of life; the color of your skin; what happened to you, whether you were abused when you were a child; where you grew up when you were a child; whether you went to school. All these are mundane issues. Hallelujah. Every man is going to be held responsible for his circumstance, you must determine what you would do with this priesthood. Even Jabez was born in bitterness and sorrow. What happened? He broke through (1 Chronicles 4:9,10;). So wherever you are coming from, whatever your situation is, God is going to hold you accountable.  

Priesthood is by birth. You must be born by the Spirit. To be born by the Spirit you must break through the coverings over the soul. That is the Melchizedek priesthood, in fact it is the priesthood of the firstborn. The firstborn is the first child to break through, isn’t that so. The firstborn of God are going to be what we will call the firstfruits. That is really what you mean. The firstfruits company is not gotten by singing and dancing to become firstfruits. You become firstfruits by breaking through something. You must overcome something to become firstfruits.   

Guess when God will bring His firstborn? The firstborn of God was brought forth at midnight in Egypt. Hallelujah.

God is not going to take us out of this world. God is not going to take you out of: your circumstance; the problems you are having; the issues you are having; the challenges you are having.

You say, “Okay God, when it changes then I am ready to serve You.” 

NO. In that situation you must break through. Hallelujah.

“So my wife is not good.”

“My husband is not good.”

“My children are this.”

“My job is this.”

Those are not the issues. The issues are that we must break through. God has the measurement brethren. The soul must be oiled. One of the basic components of tabernacles is oil. We have the first one, Passover. We have the second one, Pentecost. Now the feast of Tabernacles has three major  components. One was the harvest of the olive, the harvest of the vine, and the harvest of the fig tree. Those three things. Now I am just concerned about the harvest of the olive.

  1. Passover
  2. Pentecost
  3. Tabernacles (feast of the harvest)
    1. Harvest of the olive
    2. Harvest of the vine
    3. Harvest of the fig tree

It is from the olive, the olive said in Judges 9:9, “Should I leave my fatness and come and be king over you?”

Hallelujah. It speaks of the fatness, the oiling, the anointing that comes on the soul. …Let your soul delight itself in fatness (Isaiah 55:2). Now the soul cannot be anointed unless it receives the light that comes by the Spirit.

Now God said something to me. You know we used to teach that the wise virgins had oil in their lamps, but didn’t have oil in the vessel (Matthew 25). Read your Bible again. The wise virgins had oil in their lamp and in their vessel. But there is breaking news: the foolish virgins didn’t have any oil, their lamps were empty. Hallelujah. Many of us (I’m very sorry) are backslidden. The oil is run dry, our Christian life is dry. We don’t hear from God. There is no quiet time. There is no sweetness of communion because the oil is dry. Hallelujah.

God says, “I will bring a new baptism of the Holy Ghost.”

Brethren, I believe that God is going to pour it out in this camp. We need a fresh baptism of the Holy Ghost. Oil must come back to the vessel. How do you know that there is no fire? Do you know why? Because there is soot; soot; smoke; smoke. When there is smoke what do you have? Tears, ash, also fighting, a lot of sweat, a lot of carnality, because a lie has come in. The lie was dim, the vision was dim, he couldn’t hear again. Hallelujah. He couldn’t recognize the voice of the Lord and that is what happens when the oil dries up. The lamp of the Lord had gone dim, had gone out. Hallelujah. Brethren, this is what is happening to the end time church because we are staying too long in the place of bringing forth children. We are not positioning ourselves properly to be able to function. So God is calling for repentance.

I am in need of repentance. I need to pray for it.

I am asking God to “Bring a new fire.”

He says, “I will baptize you” …with the Holy Ghost, and with fire (References: Matthew 3:11; Luke 3:16;). Where is the fire brethren? Where is the fire? Hallelujah. He says, “I will baptize you” …with the Holy Ghost, and with fire.

When the baptism of the Holy Ghost comes it comes into the realm of the spirit. The baptism must get to the soul, because the soul is the priest. It is the soul that brings the offering to God. But for the oil to get into the realm of the soul you must go through the barriers. The barriers, the vails must be broken.

So God said to Abraham, “You must come out of your nation, you must come out of your country, out of your tribe.” …Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: (Genesis 12:1).

There are coverings over my soul that are specific to my personality. Hallelujah. Now how can I move forward when I don’t have a mind and an attitude of change, of resurrection? That is that I am coming to God and I am not prepared to drop the things. That is that I should come with an open heart and whatever God is touching, or whatever God is touching, then I know that has to go. But if I come to God with a self-righteous attitude then nothing can change. But we all, with open face beholding in a glass the glory of the Lord… (2 Corinthians 3:18). Are what? Are changed…

To come to God there must be an attitude that, “I am going to change.”

So if we came to this conference then we must have an attitude that we are going to go out different people. Hallelujah. When we go back to our homes: our husbands will see a new wife; or our wife will see a new husband; they will see a new priest at home. Hallelujah. Children will be changed, the rebellion that we are seeing will be judged. But do you know what? The children are being troubled by the rebellion in our own hearts because we are rebelling against God’s standard.

God has called you to be His dwelling place and whatever we have in us is going to spill onto the children. Hallelujah.

So God is saying that, “There has to be a change.”

We must come to the place of atonement. We must begin to break up our fallow ground. We must begin to stop servile work. We must begin to, you know, cry out to God.

One more thing if I may. In Leviticus 25 it says, 23The land shall not be sold for ever: … Hallelujah. That is Jubilee. So if a man has sold himself into slavery, he sold his land, he sold his property, he even sold himself. On the day of Jubilee, when the trumpet begins to sound – that man is free to go home. Hallelujah. God says therefore, The land shall not be sold for ever:…

What is that saying? Yes, these spirits have taken advantage of us. They are ruling over us: you know, there are besetting sins, there are natures that people know you by. 

You say, “Well that is me.”

The Bible says that it will not always be so. The prodigal son must find his way back. Hallelujah. I feel that God is bringing a Word to His people. He is speaking to me, He is speaking to you, that the land shall not be sold for ever… It is possible for us to come home. It says that every man will come back to his father’s house and when you come back you will find the Lord waiting. He was standing up, it is speaking of readiness (Luke 15:20).

Just as I stood up I could feel a sweetness, there was something that happened in this hall, there was a sweetness that came in. Hallelujah. I don’t know if you noticed. There was a sweetness. Hallelujah. I feel that it’s a visitation of God upon us. It is our opportunity for change. Hallelujah. There is a new wine that He is bringing.

Yes, we have had the old experience, we have seen the things that have happened, but I believe that God is doing a new thing. He is bringing new priests. He is bringing in new trumpets. You know, there is something new that He is bringing. Yes, we have drunk the old wine, but I think there is a new wine that is coming, a sweetness that is coming. There is going to be a priest that will stand.

Now God is saying to me, “If you don’t do it, others will.”

If you don’t pay the price, another person will pay the price. You see, …there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left (Luke 17:34). Hallelujah. So I think we are being called to make a choice and the choice is to stop church. Hallelujah. It is to realize that the goal posts are changed. The goal posts are changed, the rules of the game have changed, God will no longer tolerate Old Testament where we don’t bring to Him. He says, …give me thine (your) heart…, bring the inward parts (Proverbs 23:26). That is the sacrifice that God wants. It says, thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first (and the greatest) commandment (Mark 12:30). Hallelujah.

The question is what are you giving to God? Have we given God our mind? Have we given God our emotions? Or are they just locked up? Is there somebody that you are holding, that you haven’t forgiven the person? Maybe a husband, maybe a wife, or your children, or your relations, you are just binding them. For as long as you are holding them you cannot be a priest. That is how serious it is, because no offering that is torn by wild beasts will be accepted of the Lord. Either you have torn others, or you are being torn – that completely puts you out.

So I am believing that God would have us, brethren, to come to a new experience. It is not that we don’t know about them, these are things that we have known, but somehow we have gone past and God is saying that we need to come back again. Let’s come back again to the foundations, let us consider these matters, to realize that God will have a people that MUST break through.

He says, “I will meet you between the wings of the Cherubim, between the mercy seat,” (Exodus 25:22).

The Bible said that when Moses was there he heard the voice of God speaking to him out of from between the Cherubims. The Cherubim speaks of a life that is self-less. That is just a summary of self-less, there is nothing of self in it, it was holy, holy. It was a ministry to God completely, there was nothing held back. That is the nature that will be a place of fellowship unto God.

So I figure I am going to stop at this point and just pray that the Lord will help us to make a response. I believe that yesterday as we were praying I began to see doors open. I believe that there are dimensions in the spirit that God is going to allow us to get in, but brethren there must be brokenness. Brokenness is something that the end time church has lost. The Bibles says, The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise (Psalm 51:17).

Brethren, there is worship and there is worship. The worship that comes from a broken heart, it releases oil. You can feel the oil of the Holy Ghost come upon your heart. When it comes from a heart that is torn by wild beasts you can feel the dryness. Hallelujah.

Brethren, let’s allow God to break us. Let there be brokenness, brethren. It says, Let nothing be done in strife or vain glory… (Philippians 2:3). Let us have a meek and a quiet and a humble spirit, that is the sacrifice that God is looking for. I believe that as we begin to bring this right offering that things will happen. God will speak. There are a lot of things that God will do, both on the individual and on the corporate level that will equip us to be able to deal with the issues that are coming.

Praise the Lord.
