Wisdom and Revelation

Scripture: Ephesians 1 v 17 -19:  "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: 
18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened: that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.
19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,"

This is the perfect prayer from Paul and can be used to pray for everyone we know and cause many to come nearer to God. Let's look at it more closely.

Our Father wants us to know Him through spiritual revelation, because He is a Spirit and can only be known when we seek Him in the same manner. It takes wisdom to discern Him in Spirit but it opens our spiritual eyes to know what His true calling for us is, which He hopes we will achieve.

Through achieving our true calling we will gain the riches of His inheritance and how it works together with all the other saints (born again Christians) to effectively accomplish His will on Earth. 'Our Father which art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven ...'

The highest and best achievement of His children is when His perfect will is done on Earth as He sees it in Heaven. When we maintain a holy lifestyle, walking in love towards one another, united in prayer and obeying sound doctrine, then our photos get put under His fridge magnets.

James 1 v 5 - 6: "If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
 6  But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed."

As long as we ask in faith without doubt and wavering, we will receive wisdom. We kill it when after it has been given we say "I wonder if this is really from God?" Rather rejoice that He has opened our hearts and eyes to understand deeper things.

Revelations come when we are very desirous of knowing God more deeply. Peter was very close to Jesus, and when Jesus asked His disciples, Who do men say that I am?  Peter replied, "You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God."

Jesus said to Peter, Flesh and blood humans could not have revealed this to you but only My Father in Heaven.  Upon the rock of this revelation the church will be built.  The church was not built on or around Peter and he was not the first Pope of the Roman Catholic Church.  In fact, the Church of Jesus Christ has no Pope, no Pontiff, no Vicar of Christ.

It has no Archbishops, Cardinals, Monseignors, Fathers, or any such titles.  It has no celibate priesthood nor Mother Superior and celibate nuns.  Be not deceived, the Catholic Church has elevated Mary to Co-Redeemer with Christ and that she was ascended into Heaven like Jesus.  

They call it the Assumption and it is just an assumption.  All these things are false revelations to bind the souls of their adherents to keeping them faithful by saying they are the only way of salvation.  In Christianity there are no Confessionals, no Mass, no transubstantiation of a wafer into the actual Body of Jesus, or wine into His actual Blood.

Millions of people died in the Spanish Inquisition who refused to believe the Roman Catholic deceptions.  And God says in Revelation 17 v 4 - 9: 
"And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: 
 6  And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
 7  And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
 8  The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
 9  And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."

The mind that has wisdom will know this is the Catholic version of "Mary" who is really the Babylonian witch and self-appointed goddess, Semiramis, to whom the rosary beads and prayers are said by over a billion Catholics every day.  She is the one of whom statues are worshipped in processions and cathedrals like Notre Dame "Our Lady" are built.

The world mourns the fire that consumed that Cathedral so recently, but it could be that God is judging the cult worship of "Mary" whom He refers to as "the Beast".  When the Antichrist arrives, his unholy trinity will consist of himself, the Beast and the False Prophet.
Revelation 19 v 19 - 21: "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.
 20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
 21  And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh."

The image of the Beast is the statue of Mary in thousands of churches and millions of homes.  The False Prophet is well known for ruthless violence and murder of Christians, Jews and innocent citizens all over the world.  They are all deceived that worship these.  The world governments are controlled by the Antichrist who is rapidly rising.

We are facing the end times and who knows it and who is prepared.  This is a prophetic warning that should be broadcast world wide but the powers that be are keeping silent.  They know what's coming and warn no one.  This is revelation and wisdom and some will be shocked.  It's easier to ignore it and pretend that the future is filled with everything good.

David Wilkerson prophesied it years ago in his book, The Vision, which tormented him for many months.  He said it starts when the price of gold reaches $800 and beyond. We are well beyond that now.  The Word of God is more relevant than tomorrow's News Bulletins.  The prophetic word from the mouths of true prophets is being ignored and it is time to listen up.

The people prophesying a bright future for those who keep their bank accounts filled is believed and there is no wisdom in it.  The people continuously electing Godless communists as good rulers with great promises, are deceived and enslaved to poverty.

To those who take heed of this blog and others who are brave enough to withstand scorn and ridicule, truth is stark but real and they have time to prepare their hearts and lives and families to be ready for the coming of Jesus.

It opened my eyes to much more spiritual reality and the spiritual treasures have never stopped coming. When we enter into the heart of God we find true wealth. We need all the treasures in His storehouse to be able to make a real and permanent difference in the lives of those He sends our way. You don't need a degree in theology to minister to people. In 1 John 2 v 27 says:

"But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, ye shall abide in Him."

We need the anointing of the Holy Spirit every minute of every day so we may stay connected to God for wisdom and revelation teaching. It is fully trustworthy and true. God hates lies so there will be no untruths in His revelations. The end result is that we abide or stay secure in Him.

After Paul's conversion on his way to Damascus, he spent 3 years in the desert learning about Jesus through revelations given to him by the Holy Spirit. Through what God revealed to him he was enlightened to write most of the New Testament, which is such a blessing to us today.

In Proverbs Solomon encourages us to seek wisdom and understanding; to lean not on our own understanding but trust in the Lord. This is how we find favour with God and man so let us obey these words and be blessed.

So don't think we can handle what is coming upon us without God's help and guidance.  He loves us and we are saved and ready to be rescued on a day, hour and minute that only He knows.  Many will come to be saved in the days ahead and we must all be alert and ready to do our part in helping them make it into God's Kingdom.

Prayer: Father God, You are so vast that the Earth is Your footstool. Our finite minds struggle to know You but through revelation in our spirit we know Your love for us, Your hopes for us to fulfil our true calling. We pray this day for our eyes to be enlightened with Your wisdom so we can find favour with You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
