"Let me show you, says the Lord, that which shall come forth at the close of this age. It is even that which you read about in my Word. And what says it? 



'Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it; that He might sanc­tify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.' (Ephes. 5:25-27). 



Hear now the voice of the Seventh Messenger speaking. Seven is the number of my church—those who have been called out of this world and joined to me; therefore I speak in the power or essence of the number Seven to those who will hear my voice and become a part of that which I am preparing to bring forth. For the time is now, and all things are leading up to the coming forth of this glorious church.



You will notice that it is a glorious church that I will present to myself; I will not present it to myself and then make it glorious. It will be glorious on earth before it is glorious in the Heavenlies. Let me take you, therefore, to my Word and unveil the type that I have enacted to portray this glorious church.



You shall turn to the 28th Chapter of Exodus and there behold the High Priest and the garments that were made for him. It is written that the garments were ‘for glory and beauty’ (28:2). They were especially fashioned that the High Priest might minister to me in the priest's office. Now hear my word! 



The garments portray the glory and beauty which is to come forth in my church in this last day, for the High Priest and the garments are one picture of that which shall be fulfilled in a people who have been completely joined to me. The High Priest is a type of the entire Body of Christ, both Head and members. The primary fulfillment of the ministry of the High Priest was realized in the person and ministry of Jesus Christ: His life, death, resurrection and glorification. 



But the complete fulfillment is to be manifested in the 'mystery' of His Body—that people who shall show forth His glory and beauty on the earth, and then be joined unto Him in the heavenly Kingdom: who have been made ONE with Him in His high priestly ministry; who are 'mem­bers of His Body, of His flesh, and of His bones' (Ephes.5:30).



 This unity is portrayed in the Psalmist's picture of the anointing oil which was poured on the head of the High Priest and flowed down on his garments. ‘Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment on the head, that ran down on the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments' (Psalm 133:1-2).



 In order to show that the garments of glory and beauty with which Aaron was adorned represent the ministry of a glorious church on earth, I would call your attention to the ceremonies enacted on the great Day of Atonement. There you will notice that the High Priest, in order to minister beyond the veil, which is a type of the heavenlies, divested himself of his beautiful garments and changed into garments of pure white from head to foot (Lev. 16:4). These white linen garments were to be worn only in his ministry beyond the veil, and when this was finished he removed them and put on his regular garments (Lev. 16:23). Now what does this portray? 



It portrays the fact that when the Body of Christ has finished its ministry on the earth, there shall be a 'put­ting on' of changed and translated bodies which will no longer be flesh and blood but flesh and bone (Luke 24:39). 



Such bodies or garments are for those who are completely clothed in the white linen of righteousness (Rev. 19:8, 14). In their own native heavenly realm, these changed bodies glow with a soft white light. But behold the type! The garments of glory and beauty made for the High Priest out of materials of blue, purple, scarlet, gold and precious stones, were for ministering in the Holy Place outside the veil, picturing con­ditions on the earth. Therefore a glorious church must come forth on the earth before entrance beyond the veil into the heavenlies.



[The Clothing in Detail]



Now let us examine each of the articles of clothing or apparel with which the High Priest was clothed, and in doing so I shall unveil that which will come forth in the people of my choosing. First, I would have you note that it was Moses who was commanded to make 'holy garments' for Aaron (Ex. 28:2), and it was Moses who placed the garments on Aaron at the time of his consecration (Lev, 8:6-9). Here again is a double type. Even as the High Priest was a type, both of Christ and His Body, so is Moses a type of Christ and a certain portion of His Body. Basically, the garments of 'glory and beauty' portray provisions of Christ in His atoning and redemptive work, but the adorning or bringing forth of the glorious church is also dependent on the ministry of certain chosen ones who make up the Moses company in contrast to the Aaron company.



Who are these that must be brought to a place of power and authority ahead of the coming forth of the glorious church? They are the ‘manifested sons' who will put on im­mortality and be no longer subject to death. And because of their spirit-powered ministry, they will be used mightily to bring the rest of the Body of Christ into a place of spiritual unity and power. There will be a two-fold manifestation: 144,000 first-fruit saints shall be translated at the beginning of the tribulation period. They will have the ability to ap­pear and minister to the saints remaining. A much smaller group will put on immortality in physical bodies, remaining on the earth to minister in a realm of power to help bring forth the glorious church. Although the beginning stages are even now evident in many places, the full glory of the church will not come forth until the tribulation period has begun.



[The Ephod]



The first garment mentioned in the order of instructions for fashioning was the ephod. (Ex. 28:6-14). From the per­spective of your God, this was the basic garment of the High Priest's clothing. The ephod was the outermost garment cov­ering the upper body. It was the most decorative item of his apparel. More than anything else it was the mark of his office. The ephod was made of two pieces of variegated material—of gold and blue and purple and scarlet and fine twined linen—joined together at the shoulders and slipped over the head. 

It was fastened around the body by means of a belt-like sash woven as a part of the garment. A part of the ephod were two engraved stones, set in gold filigrees and sewn on the garment where the shoulder pieces came together. (Ex. 28:9-12). Also an integral part of the ephod was the breastplate of judgment (Ex. 28:12-30). It was made of the same variegated material as the ephod. The material was folded twice forming a pouch about 9-1/2 inches [24 cm] square. It was secured to the ephod in front, over the heart, by be­ing tied with chains of gold at the top. The chains were slipped through rings of gold, which were sewn on the borders at the top of each side of the breastplate, and fastened to filigrees on the shoulder pieces. It was secured to the ephod at the bottom by ribbons of blue. The ribbons were slipped through the rings of gold, which were sewn on the inside borders at the bottom of the breastplate, and tied to other rings of gold sewn on the sides of the ephod just above the belt-like sash.



Twelve stones, one for each of the tribes of Israel, were set in enclosures of gold and attached to the front of the breastplate, making four rows of stones (Ex. 28:17-21). Each one of the stones was to have the name of one of the tribes engraved on it. The two stones on the shoulder pieces were also to have the names of the twelve tribes engraved on them, six on each stone. It was a part of the function of the High Priest to bear these names on his shoulders and on his heart when he went into the tabernacle to minister before the Lord. (Ex. 28:12, 30). Inside the pouch-like enclosure of the breastplate were placed the Urim and Thummim, by means of which the High Priest secured direct an­swers from the Lord God concerning the affairs of the nation. 



The Urim and Thummim were special objects given to Moses when he was in the mount receiving the instructions for the tabernacle and the priesthood. They were received from the hand of the Lord God even as the original tablets of stone on which were written the Ten Commandments. 



The Ten Commandments were the basic precepts-in-righteousness which were to form the foundation for the life of the nation; therefore they were engraved on specially prepared stones. The Urim and Thummim, in the possession of the High Priest, provided the means for direct guidance in the application and implementation of the basic precepts. They were there­fore an important adjunct to the tablets of stone. When used by the High Priest they would emit the basic colors that form light, much the same way that a prism refracts the light of the sun and breaks it down into the seven primary colors. The very word 'Urim' means light. 

No natural light was needed to use the objects; the light was within them; but they had to be used together in order to produce the effect indicated by the name 'Thummim' which means perfection. The word shows the basic or primary answer received for a perfect application and implementation of the Ten Command­ments. There was no excuse for uncertainty. The mind of the Lord could easily be received on any question and it would be a perfect 'break down' of the truth or light given in the Ten Commandments. These objects will be considered later, for since all things pertaining to the High Priesthood were typical, and have their spiritual counterpart, it is not necessary for you to understand just how the Urim and Thum­mim were used.



Since the ephod was the basic garment of the High Priest, let me show you what it typifies. All the garments of the High Priest portray various aspects of the human tab­ernacle which houses the spirit begotten of God. Just as the tabernacle pitched in the wilderness consisted of two basic parts: the outer court and the tent enclosure; so are there two parts to that which houses the human spirit: the outer physical body, and the inner soul body. Contact by the hu­man spirit with the Divine Spirit is made through the vehicle of the soul. The soul partakes of the life forces of the phys­ical, but is a much more highly tenuous vehicle which is sensitive to impressions from the spirit world. 



Since the ephod was the garment which enabled the High Priest to communicate with Deity, it is a type of the soul of the born-again Christian. Before the soul can be a medium for com­munication with the Divine, it must first be cleansed from the defiling effects of sin; this is effected through the blood of Jesus Christ. Then it must be infused with Divine life, making it possible for its forces to be oriented God-ward, and providing the means for its complete restructure in the likeness of the Son of God. A soul which is steeped in sin is naturally attuned to the vibratory impingements of the enemy - Satan. It is extremely susceptible to the thought-impressions and desire-pulls of invisible evil forces. There­fore, in order to become a medium for Divine-human com­munication, it must be thoroughly purged and purified, so that it will receive and entertain only those vibratory influ­ences which are uplifting and edifying.


I shall speak to you concerning each part of the ephod and its accompanying breastplate, and show its typical mean­ing as it pertains to the soul of the born-again Christian. To be 'born again' means to be regenerated within by the in­corruptible seed of Christ (I Pet. 1:23, James 1:21), receiving LIFE into the soul; and causing the soul to become a death­less vehicle for the human spirit. 



In the unsaved person, who has not received LIFE through Christ, the soul is subject to death even as is the physical body (Ezek. 18:20, Matt. 10: 28). But in the saved person, the soul has been flushed through with eternal life, and in the event of the death of the physical body, the soul then becomes a functioning body or vehicle for the spirit in the celestial realms. Now the powers or functions of the soul, which constitute man a liv­ing personality in the objective world, can be used either independently of God or in subjection to the mind and will of God. The purpose of this word of revelation is to show how the soul becomes attuned to Divine life and conscious­ness, becoming no longer a vehicle for self-expression, domi­nated by uncleanness through the powers of darkness; but a vehicle for the expression of the very nature and being of the Christ of God.



After the initial cleansing of the soul through the blood of Christ, and the receiving of LIFE through the incorruptible seed, a point of contact has been established within the soul which becomes a conductor for the Spirit of God to flow to energize and uplift. Also, since the 'seed' which has been engrafted into the soul is from the glorified body of the Son of God, it contains all the essence of His very nature and being, and thus becomes a 'perfection vortex’ for the com­plete restructuring of the fabric of the soul into His likeness. Therefore the Living Word (the engrafted seed - the Christ within) and the Spirit (the Holy Spirit) work together to weave and furbish with 'cunning work' (Ex. 28:6) the 'ephod' or soul garment of the born-again Christian. The basic material for the ephod was fine linen. 



This fine linen is a type of the righteousness of Jesus Christ (Rev. 19:8) which is imparted to the soul by the Word and the Spirit (I Cor. 1:30, Il Cor. 5:21, Rom. 8:4). The soul is 'made righteous' only through Christ; there is no other way. The righteousness of Christ which is first imputed to those who believe in His atoning work, caus­ing them to be justified freely by His grace (Rom. 3:22-24, 4:5-11, 22-25), must thereafter be imparted and 'woven' as an integral part of the fabric of the soul.



Other elements are also to be 'woven' into the soul-fabric, as indicated by the fine linen being supplemented by gold, blue, purple and scarlet (Ex. 28:6). The 'gold' represents tried and proven character which comes only through the crucible of experience, as the grace of Christ, working by means of the Holy Spirit, causes one to rise above tempta­tion, pressures, and various fiery trials, weaving in the beauty of steadfastness, patience, and faithfulness, without bitterness, wrath, or turning back (Rom. 5:3-5, James 1:2-4, I Pet. 1:6-8, Heb. 10:35-39). The blue in the ephod is a type of heavenly aspirations: that which causes one to set his mind on things that are above where Christ is seated at the right hand of God the Father (Col. 3:1). 

'Thinking' is an important function of the powers of the soul. The crea­tive ability of the mind can greatly determine the warp and woof of the soul's texture. Through the power of the risen Christ within, the mind must be quickened to the present reigning of Christ as Lord over one's entire being, causing the entirety of one's thoughts to be centered in the continu­ous reality of His presence, so that nothing is seen apart from His providential working. 



If this concept can be inculcated and practiced daily, the mind will be continually renewed and the life transformed, enabling the 'blue' of heaven's aura to become an integral part of the soul's beauty (Ephes. 4:23, Rom. 12:2). The purple in the ephod is a picture of the crowning glory of one who is to be a king-priest with Christ, to rule and reign with Him in His Kingdom (Rev. 5:10, 20:6). Closely related to this, and indispensable to it, is the scarlet of sacrificial love; the willingness to give one's all to the Savior in devotion and obedience. For it is only love poured out that enables the Holy Spirit to 'weave in' these qualities which partake of the scarlet and purple of the ‘royal priesthood’ and the beauties of maturing sonship. (I John 3:16).



[The Robe of the Ephod]



Before looking further, at the typical significance of the ephod, the related garments must be considered. Immediately under the ephod was a garment known as the 'robe of the ephod' (Ex, 28:31-35). It was made completely of blue material. It was slipped over the head as was the ephod, providing a complete covering for the upper body and reach­ing down to just below the knees. Since it was a more com­plete covering than the ephod, it could be seen where it reached down over the upper arms in the form of short sleeves and where it reached below the ephod at the bottom. Being of a coarser material than the ephod, all of one color and unadorned, it is a type of the physical body which is the outer covering or 'garment' for the human spirit in the objec­tive world. 



This might be difficult to understand since it was worn under the ephod. But the garments of the High Priest are seen from the point of view of contact and com­munication with God; and the chief instrument which re­ceives and transmits thought-impulses, and becomes sensi­tized to Spirit awareness and Spirit workings, being fashion­ed and adorned with the very beauty and character of Jesus Christ, is that highly tenuous vehicle or body called the soul. 

The soul interpenetrates the physical body and forms a liaison substance between the human spirit and the physi­cal body. Because its consistency is of a finely attenuated texture, it enables the indwelling spirit to 'seat' or make contact in the physical body and use the physical body as an expressive vehicle in the objective world. Also because of its highly tenuous nature, the soul is very sensitive to im­pressions made upon it, much the same as a sensitive record­ing instrument; thus feeling and response function through the soul, receiving and emitting mental-emotional reactions and attitudes. 



It becomes then the sum and substance of a person's nature or personality; and also woven into its fabric is the essence of one's character. Since the beauty and adornment of the High priest's garments were in the ephod, and not in the robe of the ephod, it portrays by type that the Christian-priest in the Body of Christ is to manifest the beauty of Christ's life and character from the inner man of the heart or soul, and not be primarily concerned with the adornment of the outer or physical man (see I Pet. 3:3-4). 



Also, since the ephod was worn on the outside and its beauty seen, while the robe of the ephod was under it and only par­tially visible, it portrays the truth that what others should ‘see’ and be conscious of is the beauty and glory of the Christ within, shining through in expression of a soul com­pletely re-shaped and fashioned in His likeness, rather than the outward or exterior appearance of the physical man.




Around the hem of the robe of the ephod were sewn replicas of pomegranates made of blue and purple and scar­let. In between the pomegranates were placed bells of gold, designed to make a sound as the High Priest ministered before the Lord in the Holy Place (Ex. 28:33-35). The pomegranates are a type of fruitfulness because of their multitudinous seeds. Since they were on the robe of the ephod they indicate that ‘fruit’ or seed which is engendered by the life forces within the physical body. Only a small fraction of the billions of seed-cells produced within the body of a normal male are ever used to beget children. 



Therefore it should be obvious to all that there is another purpose for this seed. It is be­yond the scope of this 'word' to fully detail the hidden func­tion and purpose of this life seed, but in the coming era of the manifesting sons of God, it will become common knowledge. And even in the closing stages of this age, those who are to fully enter into the glory of the priestly ministry of Christ on the earth will come to know the mysteries involved. The ‘mystery’ of the pomegranates is closely related to the golden bells which alternated between them on the hem of the robe of the ephod. Gold is a type of the Spirit and things Divine. 



The bells, functioning as the High Priest ministered before the Lord in the Holy Place, indicates, by type, that all of the life forces must be channeled to the 'gold' of Spirit, ‘that he die not’ (Ex. 28:35). In other words, this is the key to immortality in human flesh. It was in the Holy Place OUTSIDE the veil that the High Priest ministered with these garments - with the pomegranates and the bells. Thus they portray a secret for those who would enter into the full­ness of Christ's redemptive work while still on the earth in bodies of flesh and blood. Even the Lord Jesus alluded to this mystery as recorded in Matthew 19:12.



[The Tunic]



Having considered the robe of the ephod, let me now show you the typical significance of that garment which was under it, next to the body of the High Priest. A white tunic, woven of fine linen, and covering the entire upper and lower body was placed on the High Priest first. On top of this was worn the robe of the ephod, and then the ephod itself was put on last. (Ex. 28:39, 29:5). The tunic reached to the feet and also covered the arms with long, tight-fitting sleeves. It was large enough to hang loose on the body, but was gird­ed to the body by means of a specially made sash, decorated with various colors. I have already shown you how the ephod represents the soul of the born-again Christian, and the robe of the ephod the physical body. 



Forming a connect­ing link between the highly tenuous soul and the body of flesh, is what is known as the 'autonomic nervous system.' The various nerves and nerve ganglia are represented by the strands of finely twined linen of which the tunic was woven. This self-acting nervous system, with its sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, causes the physical organism to re­spond and react to desires, feelings and emotions that arise as a result of soul-powers resident within. This is why it is so important to have the right mental-emotional attitudes at all times. 



The power of the soul to affect the condition of the physical body is great. For example, anger arising in the soul has its effect on certain organs in the physical body by their being activated through stimulation of the sympa­thetic nervous system. Thus, a wide variety of negative and destructive emotions and ingrained feelings can greatly wea­ken the body's normal functioning and make it far more sus­ceptible to the inroads of predatory organisms which are ever ready to take advantage of areas of weakness in the physical body. The finely twined linen of the tunic, which covered the entire body of the High Priest, is an apt picture of the fine and delicate nerve fibers which act as a communications system throughout the entire body. No person can adequate­ly and effectively minister as a Christian-priest in the ser­vice of the Lord without a healthy influence of soul powers on the physical body. This comes only as the Christ within is allowed to control and direct all the mental and emotional processes into channels that will spiritually uplift, and increase the flow of the life of the Spirit to the quickening of the physical body through the sympathetic nervous system. Otherwise the reactions of mental-emotional stimuli on the body will be destructive and harmful.



Although the tunic itself was entirely of white linen, the sash with which it was girded was decorated with needle­work of various colors. This again is to portray the typical relationship of the tunic with the ephod, for the ephod was variegated with the same colors. In other words, the ephod, or soul, is closely connected to the tunic, which represents the autonomic nervous system. Through this system, the soul affects the body of flesh, or the robe of the ephod, which was worn between the ephod and the tunic. Can you not see, my people, that the priesthood ministry involved the whole man? 



It is my purpose that there should be a perfect relationship between the functions of soul (the mental-emotional faculties) and the physical body. For only then can the physical body be a perfectly healthy vehicle for the priesthood ministry of My saints. Think not that the physical body was fashioned to be subject to death. It is a necessary part of the total man in the service of his God. Its com­plete redemption is a necessary part of my total plan for man, and that redemption provides for the perfect relationship and functioning of both body and soul.

[The Breastplate]



Now let us look more closely at the 'breastplate of judgment.’ Aaron was to ‘bear the judgment of the children of Israel upon his heart before the Lord continually.' (Ex. 28:30). This was by means of the twelve precious stones ­on which the names of the twelve tribes were engraved (Ex. 28:21). Primarily this portrays the judicial sentence which Jesus Christ, the true High Priest, took on Himself in order that those who believe in Him might be free. The High Priest's bearing them on his heart continually portrays the continuous intercession of Jesus Christ at the right hand of the Father (Rom. 8:34, Heb. 7:25). But there is a further meaning as it applies to the life of the Christian-Priest. Pre­cious stones are cut to reflect the beauty of light as it casts its beams into the various color formations - causing each stone to sparkle with its own unique characteristics.



 As each stone on the breastplate was engraved with a name of one of the tribes of Israel, so does this portray the fact that each stone is a type of a particular characteristic or virtue which is to be imparted and 'engraved' into the very soul structure of every true Israelite. Such 'precious stones' will reflect the beauty of the very life of Jesus Christ which fills the inner being of every Spirit-sanctified Christian. The typical and spiritual significance of every tribe and every stone should be fulfilled in the inner life of every Christian who desires to enter into the full priesthood ministry of Jesus Christ. For every part of the High Priest's adornment is a portrayal of that which can become an integral part of the Christian's life and experience.



[The Urim and Thummim]



Placed inside the pouch-like fold of the breastplate of judgment were the Urim and Thummim. I have already shown you that these were objects given to Moses by which the High Priest could discern the mind of the Lord on specific issues relating to the application and implementation of the Ten Commandments. But what is their antitypical signifi­cance in the life of the Christian-priest? The breastplate of judgment with its Urim and Thummim was an integral part of the ephod. I have already shown you that the ephod is a type of the regenerated soul of the born-again Christian. Such a soul has been 'attuned' to the Divine consciousness, and if kept free from contaminating influences, is increas­ingly sensitive to communication from the Spirit of the Lord. 



In its basic or fundamental aspects, this communication is received in the form of impressions, spiritual discernment, dreams, and the spiritual awareness of parabolic experiences which are a part of the daily providential oversight of every Christian. This is the Christian-priest with the ephod as he ministers unto the Lord, and as he receives from the Lord communication beamed through the glands and sympathetic nervous system into the soul or inner consciousness. To this basic communication can be added the Urim and Thummim. This involves an increased sensitivity to the voice of the Lord, speaking more specifically, and not in general im­pressions.



Such increased sensitivity is first brought about by the Urim, which means light. The 'light' is the increased white­ness, or purity, of the soul body, plus the adjustment by Div­ine intervention of certain internal 'cords' which make it possible for reception in the human organism to be 'stepped up' to a higher intensity. Thus the ability to ‘tune in' to the light-rays beaming the 'voice of the Lord' to those who have come into possession of the 'Urim’ is greatly increased. The 'Urim' first comes into initial functioning when a Christian submits himself to the operations of the Holy Spirit in that which is known as the fiery Spirit baptism. But most Chris­tians are so woefully ignorant of the true nature and purpose of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and so ill taught on how to maintain their Spirit sanctification, enabling the soul to be kept free from defiling influences, that they receive lit­tle benefit from the spiritual operation of the 'Urim’ within.



The ultimate in communication from the Lord can be experienced only as the Thummim is also working with the Urim. Thummim means perfection or completeness. It comes into operation in the human organism only after the entering into immortality. As long as mortality is working in the physical body, there cannot be the ultimate in perfection within the life of the Christian-priest. Neither can he fully minis­ter to the Lord in the antitypical adornment of the priest­hood. 



The 'Thummim ' functioning within causes certain changes to take place in the glandular system, enabling the immortal to be attuned to vibration waves and impulses that are not within the range of the mortal. The immortal thus not only 'hears,' but also 'sees' that which mortals cannot. 



There is not only an increased reception of vibratory im­pulses conveying the words of the Lord to the inner con­sciousness, but there is also the opening up of a whole new realm of sight perception, as previously unseen visual im­pulses convey to the newly keyed receptors a vast range of color formations emanating from within the souls of men. 

This is why it is said of Jesus that 'he knew all men, and needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.' (John 2:24-25). Jesus walked on the earth as an immortal, and He could see the thought formations and emotional patterns which came forth in vibratory color-tones. Such formations and patterns vary greatly from ex­tremely ugly and grotesque to very beautiful. Thus the 'Thummim' added to the 'Urim' within the immortal makes possible a realm of experience and ministry far beyond that of the mortal.

[The Tribal Name Stones]



There is yet one more part of the Ephod which needs to be unveiled in its antitypical fulfillment: the stones on which were engraved the names of the tribes of Israel, and which were fastened upon the shoulder pieces of the ephod. There were two stones, and each one was to have six tribal names engraved on it. (Ex. 28:9-11). Aaron was to bear these names before the Lord on his two shoulders for a memorial. (Ex. 28:12). In Biblical symbolism, the shoulder stands for strength. (Isa. 9:6). 

The High priest bearing the tribes of Isra


el on his shoulders is a picture of the sustaining strength of Jesus Christ, the true High Priest, in the impartations of His divine life and power to all who avail themselves of His grace. In its individual fulfillment in the Christian-priest, the engraved stones upon the shoul­ders is a type of the overcoming grace provided through the strength or power of the Holy Spirit's infilling. This 'fulness' is portrayed by the engraving of all of the tribal names on the two shoulder stones. The stones on the shoulder pieces and the stones in the breastplate were symbolically connected by means of the chains of gold which were secured to the settings of the shoulder stones and slipped through rings of gold attached to the borders of the breastplate. Thus connected, both sets of stones indicate the two-fold work of the Spirit in regeneration and impartation. The stones in the breastplate are particularly indicative of the work of regen­eration, and the stones set on the shoulders are especially representative of that impartation which comes at the time of the Holy Spirit baptism.



[The Mitre]



The final part of the High Priest's garments to be con­sidered is the head dress with its plate of gold engraved with the words 'Holiness to the Lord.' (Ex. 28:36-37). The head ­dress, or mitre, was made of fine linen to portray the totality of the righteousness of Jesus Christ which 'adorns' the Christ­ian-priest as it controls every aspect of his being, including the mind. The plate of gold with its engraving is symbolic of a special work of divine grace in preparing those who are to come forth with a ministry that relates to the Word being 'sealed' within, that the mind of Christ may flow through to minister LIFE. The ‘gold’ of the plate signifies a divine work of the Spirit whereby the 'holiness' or separating to the Lord is fully accomplished, that the mind might be an open channel for the living Word of the Lord. This is symbolized by the fact that the plate of pure gold was always on the High Priest's forehead (Ex. 28:38). Even so are the servants of God to be sealed in their foreheads, to be made ready for a ministry in the power of the living Word (Rev. 7:2-3).



You have now seen, my people, how I must clothe you in garments of beauty and glory, that you might be ready to minister to me. I am even now bringing my people into a further understanding of that which has been partially hidden or veiled, but is now to be revealed. There is much yet to be made known concerning the priesthood ministry of my saints on the earth, and as you are able to receive, I will reveal it to you. Therefore I call to you to make yourself completely available to the workings of my Word and Spirit, that you might be fully adorned for the mighty end-time harvest which is coming. Let me fulfill in you all that is portrayed in the garments of the High Priest. Even so shall you be used for my glory in the days that are ahead.”

Let me try and expound a little on what I shared earlier on the Ancient Doors and the Keys,…

..Please understand that there are some things we see in the realm of the Spirit that are extremely difficult to explain in words,..while in a Vision or Dream encounter often times the one receiving it understands what is taking place because the Spirit of Revelation gives understanding and a supernatural knowledge to grasp what is happening but then to explain in natural terms can be a challenge. 



..While in my most recent encounter where I was being shown the Ancient Doors and what I called the “Living Keys”…which I knew and saw by Revelation that they were the Righteous Remnant,…the Servant Kings and High Priests of God,..those that are the Redeemed of the Lord,…



…These Ancient Doors are also ALIVE,..Living Doors,..everything that I am shown in the realm of the Spirit possess LIFE,..it’s living and has its being in the LIFE OF THE ONE THAT CREATED ALL THINGS,..EVERYTHING IN THE SPIRIT HAS LIFE,..these Ancient Doors were Alive,..these Living Doors have their being within the the ANCIENT OF DAYS,…(like wheels within wheels within wheels)..Hope that makes sense,..HE IS THE DOOR,..ALL GLORY AND REVELATION RESIDE IN HIM,…(Doors within Doors within Doors)…



…Now as the Living Keys stood before the Living and Ancient Doors so there was what I can only describe as a SPIRITUAL RECOGNITION,..(In simple terms similar to a facial recognition on your mobile phone that would recognize your facial dimensions or your Identity and OPEN UP)…



…So it is and was with the Ancient Doors,..as the Living Keys stand before the Ancient Doors there is a SUPERNATURAL AND DIVINE RECOGNITION that takes place that causes the ANCIENT DOORS TO SWING WIDE OPEN,..(but here is what’s important and vital to understand)…these Living and Ancient Doors that are found in the DEEPER REALMS OF THE SPIRIT,..WILL ONLY OPEN TO THOSE WHO ARE WALKING IN THEIR TRUE KINGDOM IDENTITY AND AUTHORITY,…









..,The Living and Ancient Doors would swing wide open as these Servant Kings and High Priests stood before them,..because they had their being deeply rooted in the revelation of WHO THEY WERE IN CHRIST,…AND THEY RULED OUT OF THAT PLACE.,.


.,Walking in this level and Understanding of their Kingdom Identity is what gave them ACCESS TO ENTER IN AND SIT FEASTING AT THE TABLE OF GREATER REVELATION AND KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST,..



…Even the Banqueting Table was LIVING,..the Scrolls that adorned the Table were LIVING,..Living Revelation,..HE IS THE BREAD OF LIFE,…the Servant Kings and High Priests were SITTING AND FEASTING,..EATING THE LIVING SCROLLS,..EATING OF LIVING REVELATION,..that brought DIVINE WISDOM,..AND KNOWLEDGE OF CHRIST…!!


…So friends hoping I explained it a little clearer and pray by Gods Grace you can understand what I’m sharing and imparting to you by the revelation and understanding I have received in these encounters,…






This is why Satan will endeavor to keep you blind to your true Identity because he knows that this is KEY,..THE KEY to giving you ACCESS TO RECEIVE GREATER AND GREATER LEVELS OF REVELATION,..UNDERSTANDING,..AND WISDOM,…Satan will seek to distort your Identity in order to stop you from ever accessing the DEEPER MYSTERIES AND HIDDEN SECRETS because he knows that when you do they become POWERFUL WEAPONS IN WHICH TO BRING UTTER DESTRUCTION AND THE ULTIMATE DEATH BLOW TO THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS..!!!

Read It. Memorize It. Treasure It.

By Greg Laurie






“They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.”

—Psalm 1:1-3



Sometimes, as Christians grow in their faith, they think they no longer need to read the Bible as much as they used to. But that isn’t true. We need to read the Bible every day. We should start the day with it. We should end the day with it. Psalm 1 tells us, “Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the Lord, meditating on it day and night” (verses 1–2 NLT). The psalmist goes on to say, “They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do” (verse 3 NLT).


If you want to be a happy person, read the Word of God. Meditate on it. In Eastern meditation, people seek to empty their minds. But in biblical meditation, we fill our minds with the Word of God. This is how we will grow spiritually. This is how we will be able to resist temptation. Psalm 119:9 says, “How can a young person stay pure? By obeying your word” (NLT). We stay pure by listening to what the Word of God says.


The apostle Paul wrote to young Timothy, “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15 NLT).


We need to read the Bible every day because success or failure in the Christian life depends on how much of the Bible we get into our lives on a regular basis and how obedient we are to it. So, read the Word. Memorize the Word. Treasure the Word. I’ve never met a strong Christian who isn’t full of Scripture.

"A Time of Divine Visitations and Promises Fulfilled" 

By Yvon Attia




Around late August, my husband Mina came to me and said, "I feel the time of fulfillment. I have a burden that with the start of the new month of September, promises will begin to manifest and be fulfilled in many lives.”


I knew God was saying something, with a specific direction to pray, but the Lord often will reveal little by little. As we press in, He reveals more and more.


As September started to approach, I began to seek God for what was on His heart. One morning, I woke up to the sound of a gentle whisper telling me to open my Bible to Genesis 21. In total obedience, I ran to the Word and started reading.


"And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had spoken." (Genesis 21:1)


Divine Visitations


As I read these words, a sense of excitement began to fill my being, and as I started to take this verse into prayer, I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit clearly point out that the month of September will be a month of divine visitations. Yet the purpose of these visitations is not to deliver a new promise, but rather to fulfill what was previously promised. I went back to read this powerful verse again. The Lord visited Sarah, and the Lord did for Sarah as He had spoken.


At that time, God started to take me on a journey and teach me about divine visitations. He pointed out that each divine visitation must always have a purpose. For example, God visited Abraham and promised him and his descendants the land of Canaan and to make him a great nation, and that the families of the earth would be blessed (see Genesis 12).


Clearly, the time to fulfill these promises had not yet come. Later, God visited him again in order to assure him that He was going to have a biological child (see Genesis 15:1-5; Genesis 17:15-19). Another powerful visitation took place in Genesis 18:10 when, through one of His messengers, God said to him, "I will return to you about this time next year, and your wife, Sarah, will have a son!" Once again, Abraham needed to wait before he could see the fulfillment of this promise. 


Interestingly, he was ninety-nine years old at that time, and so it was impossible to see the fulfillment of the promise come to pass. Previously, Abraham tried to get God to agree that his servant, Eliezer of Damascus, would be his heir. God said, "This one shall not be your heir..." (Genesis 15:4). Once again, Abraham contended with God, saying, "How about Ishmael?" Once again, God said, "No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son..." (Genesis 17:19). In other words, "Abraham, you still need to wait and see the fulfillment of what I have promised you.”


At that time, God started to remind me of old promises which I had forgotten – impossible promises, dead promises, scary promises and unbelievable promises too. I was also reminded of people in my life who promised certain things and never fulfilled these promises. Then I heard God say, "I am unlike those who promise and never fulfill. When I promise you, I come to fulfill also – no matter how impossible the situation may seem, or how dead the situation looks.”


My spirit was so full of joy, and I continued reading. The Word clearly tells us, "For Sarah conceived and bore Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him" (Genesis 21:2). The Bible is clear to specify that it was not Hagar who bore Issac; rather, fulfillment took place through the woman with a dead womb.


"And Sarah declared, 'God has brought me laughter. All who hear about this will laugh with me. Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse a baby? Yet I have given Abraham a son in his old age!'" (Genesis 21:6-7)


Promises Fulfilled


Toward the end of August, as I was sharing this with my husband, he became overjoyed as the Lord was saying the same thing to him also. The Lord spoke with him clearly about the promise of the Father and how Jesus promised the disciples that He would never leave them, and He would send them another equal to and like Him. But they had to wait for the fulfillment of the promise. When Jesus ascended, the Father poured out the Holy Spirit; so there was a fulfillment and manifestation of the promise!


My husband confirmed that just as this almighty promise of the Holy Spirit was fulfilled with a clear manifestation, so will many promises be fulfilled that have been delayed, hindered and even dead like Sarah's womb. But the Lord will visit many with divine visitations for the fulfillment of their promises.


At that time, I found myself laughing with joy. God will visit His people to fulfill what He has previously promised them. There is no situation that's too hard for God. Nothing is impossible for Him. 


I lifted my hands into the air and started to give Him praise for the month of September, and as I started to praise Him, I started to hear His sweet voice downloading this gentle word:


The Time of Blessing


"Are you ready to receive the month of divine visitation? Are you ready for divine fulfillment? You have waited long enough to see your promises come to pass. You have prayed, you have believed and now is the time.


"In the natural, it's impossible; but when it's impossible for the world, it's possible for Me. When your promise is dead, that's My chance to show you that I am God Almighty, full of power and full of might. For Issac shall be born. I will be on time, not too early and not too late.


"The fulfillment of My promises will bring laughter to you. You will no longer laugh because of unbelief, but because of bewilderment. You will be bewildered at My goodness; you will be bewildered at how those promises will unfold. You will laugh and others will laugh at what I am about to do.


"Do not ask Me how. Is there anything impossible for Me? Trust Me with all your heart. Trust Me with your mind and know that I am opening a way; I am making room for you to prosper, making room for you to thrive. You will no longer be broken down. You will be receiving your breakthrough. For the King has desired your beauty; He has chosen you to show His glory, His majesty, His power.


"Get rid of the work of the flesh. Cast out every scoffing thought of unbelief; cast out every doubt, for the time of your visitation has come. The time of blessing has arrived."

[Exhortations From The Father]




*       Rebellion and the "spirits of disheartenment" work hand in hand.


"dismay" - to fill with consternation or apprehension; dishearten and depress; an onrush of reproach causing downheartedness;


        ...."Then He said to me, "Son of man, stand on your feet that I may speak with you!" As He spoke to me the Spirit entered me and set me on my feet; and I heard Him speaking to me. Then He said to me, "Son of man, I am sending you to the sons of Israel, to a rebellious people who have rebelled against Me; they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day. I am sending you to them who are stubborn and obstinate children, and you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD.' 



As for them, whether they listen or not - for they are a rebellious house - they will know that a prophet has been among them. And you, son of man, neither fear them nor fear their words, though thistles and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions; neither fear their words nor be dismayed [disheartened] at their presence, for they are a rebellious house. But you shall speak My words to them whether they listen or not, for they are rebellious".... Ezekiel 2:1-7 NASB


        ...."I have sent you to them who should listen to you; yet the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, since they are not willing to listen to Me. Surely the whole house of Israel is stubborn and obstinate....."Go, shut yourself up in your house. As for you, son of man, they will put ropes on you and bind you with them so that you cannot go out among them. 



Moreover, I will make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth so that you will be mute and cannot be a man who rebukes them, for they are a rebellious house. But when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD.' He who hears, let him hear; and he who refuses, let him refuse; for they are a rebellious house".... Ezekiel 3:6b-7, 24b-27 NASB

Word of Encouragement

By Cindy Jacobs



Hello, everyone! I'm here in my office at Generals and I was just asking the Lord for a word for you today. These are times where Satan is trying to bring chaos to our emotions. But the word that I got today was “confidence”, and the scripture that I got is Hebrews 10:35, which says, "Don't cast away your confidence which has great reward." "Recompense of reward" is how the King James Version says it.

Satan is trying to demoralize and bring disappointment to you. I see that he's sending thoughts into your mind that things are never going to get better, that your finances are never coming, that things will not change, that that child will not be saved. There were times when I've had disappointments and thought that things were going to go one way, but they didn’t, and it was demoralizing. But the thing is that we've got to be very conscious of our thought life and cast down imaginations that are coming against us.

The Lord would say, "Know this. I have given you great authority over all the works of the enemy." Don't let Satan put you in a place where you begin to believe lies about yourself, lies about your friends, and lies about your destiny. Satan is the father of lies, but the Lord says, "Be confident in this thing: the things that I have given for you to do, the plans I have for you are going to come to great fruit.” So, though the visionary waits for it, God's going to bring you through. 

I know this is so simple, but sometimes I have to think, “Am I confident that God is going to help me? I know He loves me. I know He's working. But is my confidence sure?” And I want to say to you: make your confidence in God sure! Come back to that place where you know that you know that He is fighting your battles and that He's surrounding you with His love. That's the word for today. God bless you all and I love you so much! Keep your confidence!

Face Your Day Calmly And Peacefully

By Russ Walden


The Father says today, make it your determination and choice to face your day calmly and peacefully from a position of total rest. If the works were finished before the foundation of the world, then what are you sweating for? Don’t let your troubles cause you to be anxious in your mind or spirit. Focus your internal attention upon Me and look at all challenges from the inner man of your spirit where My rule and rulership proceed from.


Live in My rest today, says the Father. Go ahead and enjoy complete confidence in Me, despite some unfinished business. You know at the end of the day I will have delivered and set you free and met every expectation you have of My faithfulness. Go ahead and laugh and dance in advance, for failure is not your portion. Heartbreak is not My chosen paradigm for the life that you are now living. Trust Me, says the Father, and let Me take it from here.

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]


        ...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB 






Words of prophecy:


*____"Mental ascension" to My Word [Will] leads to an ever increasing darkness and lack of understanding in the life of the one seeking in their "own" understanding.


"mental ascension" - the reaching out ["up"] to understand the Word [Will] of God in one's "own" [soulish] strength and understanding [intellect];


____...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. Be not wise in your own eyes; reverently fear and worship the Lord and turn [entirely] away from evil".... Proverbs 3:5-7 The Amplifed Translation


____Revelation supercedes "mental ascension" - and the "preconceived notions" and darkness that are its spontaneous fruit.


"supercede" - to replace in power, authority and effectiveness;


____...."[I, Paul] do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come".... Ephesians 1:16-21 NASB


Prayer of Proclamation:


____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who refuse to be found "mentally ascending" to Your Word/Will - a people who, rather, continually position ourselves to receive revelation from Your Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation] abiding within us. And we it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.


        ...."But as for you, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which you received from Him abides [permanently] in you; [so] then you have no need that anyone should instruct you. But just as His anointing teaches you concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so you must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him]".... 1 John 2:27 The Amplified Translation
