Prize of the High Calling

Scripture: Philippians 3 v 13 - 15: "Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
 14  I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
 15  Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you."

From 1979 to 1985, the Lord gave me two momentous prizes that are still ongoing in my ministry today.  These two "prizes" formed the foundation upon which Jesus established the rest of my life.  I have written of them before and more can still be said as there is no end in sight of what God can make out of nothing.

The first was the ministry to Karen Ann, a young woman in an irreversible coma for ten years, who was in a clinic 12000 miles away.  The Lord led me to pray for her and while I was driving on a newly opened highway in traffic, downloaded her entire history into my mind!  

Together with my prayer team we made intercession for Karen and by God's amazing grace, we broke through her coma and could talk directly to her, giving her the gospel and leading her to commit her life to the Lord.  We had a powerful ministry with her for the 18 months left of her life.  I mourned at the loss of her and Jesus gave me John 12 v 24: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit."

He likened Karen to that grain of wheat and that her death would bring forth much fruit.  The knowledge of what this meant only came to me gradually but without any doubt, it enabled us to minister to people in coma and lead them to Jesus.  Some wake up, some die, but they all have the opportunity to make right with the Lord, and deny Satan their eternal souls.  The Lord extended this work and enabled us to reach other inaccessible people and encourage them to escape their captors.  There have been miracles over the years to which the Lord gets all the glory.

Concurrent with this precious and unexpected ministry the Lord began downloading the revelation of the events that took place before the foundation of the world.  For days, months, years, I was caught up in this mystery and there was absolutely nobody I could share it with.

A few days ago, in blog "Making Crooked Places Straight", I shared a testimony of a lady with the initials KKK and the astonishing ministry to her.  That very same day when I prayed further with her, I realised that many of her problems were a text book case of her being a hostage in the Six Days Realm before being born on Earth.

I did not have time to share it all with her as there was an urgency to pray so I said that no matter what I said that she did not understand she must not resist or reject it and I would explain later.  I proceeded to pray and cut off false memories from the Six Days Realm, things that had been brainwashed into her mind.

To my astonishment she went into a trance state and out of her mouth came a deep, dark, male voice full of venom and hate.  It was Satan himself!  He said to me, "No one will ever believe you! I will make sure of it!"  Strangely, it was the first time I had ever spoken of it to another person.  I was shocked but by this reaction I knew it was all true.  It was difficult to concentrate on praying but Jesus gave the victory.  She and her family moved that same day into my home for 18 months.

And the few people I shared the whole revelation with did believe and rejoice in the wonders of God.  My search for truth started with a word God gave me, Ransom.  Jesus was our ransom.  Matthew 20 v 28: "Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many."
1 Timothy 2 v 5 - 7: "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
 6  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. 
 7  Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity."

This word ransom was not explained - just that He was the ransom.  I associated the word with kidnapping, hostages, people held for ransom.  I found some verses, especially one that broke my heart.  Revelation 13 v 8 - 9: "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.   9  If any man have an ear, let him hear."

I had to work backwards from the foundation of the world to the realm where Satan had held us hostage, where even the Lamb of God was slain as the ransom.  Everything that happened in that Six Day Realm (I called it that because God made this world in six days for us while we were still hostages.)  I really needed some confirmation.  I was in chartered territory and I did not want to go wrong.

Then came my son's prize-giving night at school.  You had to be invited and only if he would be receiving an award.  He bagged the Science prize!  But it was another person the Lord had me gawking at.  Her name was Brenda just like mine!  She won every prize and award that night.  A clean sweep!  Her full name was Brenda Ransom!  The Lord used her to encourage me that this revelation was absolutely spot on.  Brenda, the Ransom is not a theory, it happened and you have got it right.  It was such a relief!

In a nutshell.  The Bride of Jesus, in Heaven, was kidnapped by Lucifer on her wedding day.  War broke out in Heaven and Lucifer became Satan.  He and his angels fell from Heaven taking the Bride with them for leverage.  She was a spirit being like them and they abused her in every way.  Her soft spirit became hard like glass and eventually shattered into millions of pieces.  I heard God's voice instruct that no fragments should be lost and they were collected into twelve baskets.

In Heaven Jesus said He was going to rescue her and be the Ransom in exchange for her.  When asked if He was sure, He said "I Am".  He put on her filthy garments (Zechariah 3) and left Heaven bearing her sins and crying, "My God , My God, why have You forsaken Me?"  When He arrived in Satan's new kingdom He suffered the same fate as His Bride.  He was slain and His spirit shattered into billions of fragments.  The fragments of Him and His Bride are the origin of our souls.  God's voice came again, Let no fragments be lost.  They were collected into 7 baskets.  (The twelve baskets became the 12 tribes of Israel, and also a visual to the Bride after the feeding of the 5000!  The 7 baskets became visual in wedding the four thousand, and then the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3.)

The Bride is manifested first on Earth as the Jewish nation of Israel, to whom a covenant was made, a betrothal.  Later Jesus was manifested, and we are the fragments of His Body.  His body was not broken on the Cross, but it was in the Six Days Realm.  And He said before His arrest, at the last supper, Take Eat this is My body broken for you, do this in remembrance of Me.  

Our memories were wiped out so the horrors of that hostage experience could be taken away.  However, Jesus wants us to remember what He did to save His Bride, Israel, who still rejects Him.  Ecclesiastes 1 v 10 - 11: "Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us.
 11  There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after."

The former things refer to the Six Days Realm.  In Peter it says one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  So every day we were hostages in that realm is equal to a thousand years on Earth.  The verses above tell us that everything we experience on this Earth is not new, but happened before the Earth was formed.

Our time here on Earth is the beginning and end of the rescue.  We have to overcome the lies and false memories that were brainwashed into our souls.  If you ever wondered what Satan did that God would never forgive, now you know.  How did he cause the first two humans in Eden to betray their Creator?  They were pre-programmed!  Why did God repent of making Man? Because He had destroy them in the Flood for the evil corruption they became capable of.

Many humans will live and die without knowing Jesus the Saviour.  They are brainwashed into a fugue state to put their faith in idols and false religions for which they gladly die.  Their souls are twisted and bent out of shape and they no longer resemble what God intended.  Only He can fix every soul and as the Psalmist says, He restores my soul.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, You sent Jesus as the only one who could save us.  He is the way, the truth and the life and the only path to You.  Every other way is a blind alley and You want us to be the light in the darkness to turn the lost onto the right path.  There is no other reason for our existence except to know Jesus and the power of His resurrection.  Help us, Lord, to make the right choice.  In Jesus' name. Amen.
