Those whom our Lord Jesus will teach to relinquish death are sons. One must have some sonship capacity to be able to receive the tutelage of deliverance from death. Death is an opposite or negative beginning material that was designed by Satan from the beginning. The things that made up iniquity in Satan were a multitude of things; Satan was trafficking in iniquity. 

 

“For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.” (2 Thess. 2:7‬). Satan will be taken out of the way. Satan is the one stopping the beast from going into the Holy of Holies. God wants Satan to fall to the alternative, which is to raise a man who will help him fulfil his course. The antichrist is not Satan’s best option because Satan wants to go to heaven and not to earth. However, he will become a footstool creature and would be expired. 

 

To make Satan ash is to make his thoughts and soul ash. The ash of Satan is more dangerous than a natural man’s. This is why we must be fed with everlasting life. Iniquity is not an ordinary thing, for Satan did a lot to birth it. Sin and death are not the same but they work for the same cause; sin is what death sends. If death wants to get a man, it will send him sin. 

 

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned…” (Romans‬ 5:12‬). Men were dying outside the import of sin; they were doing things that caused them to die. Death is in stages, but the original death is that of a cherubim.

 

“If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?” (1 John‬ 4:20‬). God is love. To love God is more difficult than loving our brothers, for loving God is a higher love commandment. A man must have loved his brother well to be able to love God. We are taught to love our brothers through commandments, but there is a higher love code of God. 

 

Commandments are revelations and they are also judgments. God has prepared things for us because we love Him. We have not really loved Him but we showed Him an indication that we can love Him, so He gives things. 

 

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, Neither have entered into the heart of man, The things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” (1 Cor.‬ 2:9‬). We cannot have this hidden wisdom except we love God. We have not yet loved Him but we have shown an indication that we can. We show this capacity to love God through the faith, hope and charity (1 Cor. 13:13). The Sanctuary has the capacity to prepare a lover for God. 

 

To be brought to glory is to hear the wisdom of God. It is through the materials of the wisdom of God, which is in charge of the glory of God, that one comes to glory. What makes a man a peculiar person is the hidden wisdom of God. This is what makes a person glorious. A glorious person is a peculiar people. A person of glory is someone who is yielding to becoming the image of God. The image of God is the glory of God, which is called the truth of God. 

 

The glory of the incorruptible God is His image (Rom. 1:23). Truth is glory and glory is also image. Glory is taking on image; a man cannot be a doer of image and not become a glorious person. 

 

“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.” (Rom. 8:18-19‬). Glory, in this scripture, is not Eternal Life but everlasting life. Eternal Life is a manifestation of the Eternal weight of glory and without conforming to the image of the Son, one cannot come into Eternal glory. The world of glory is upon us and we should not trivialize this season. Another word for glory is presence. 

 

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; And renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; And take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; And uphold me with thy free spirit.” (Psalm 51:10). The first being that was cast away from the presence of God was Lucifer. This is what makes Lucifer dangerous; he was not cast away from the presence of God on the earth, he was cast away from the brethren of the heavens that fellowshipped with the presence of God. 

 

Satan has wisdom of the presence which he used in the season of the temptation of Job. Presence can be said to be closeness to God; it means closing the gap of death. The wisdom of presence that Satan possesses makes him have knowledge of things that can take a man away from the presence of God. 

 

Joshua’s filthy garment was a glory – the glory of Babylon. This garment was not the garment of the high priest but the garment of the soul. You do not take upon yourself the glory of a high priest, it is God that calls the high priest (Zech. 3:3). Joshua could hinder the whole of Israel because they are being represented in the high priest as a garment. A garment can constitute a mountain (Zech. 4:7). 

 

Satan casted the mountain because of the garment of the high priest. Although the garment of the high priest seemed glorious to men, it was filthy before God (Isa. 64:6). This filthiness calls for us to put them on. Filthy garments refer to certain images or likeness that we want to look like.

 

Something was hung on the high priest that prevented the expression of one who was being raised from the dead. Jesus is raised as a High Priest for our protest; He will intercede for us to the uttermost until every unclean garment upon us is taken off. Jesus intercedes for children who ought to be brought to glory. Another man who sinned against presence was Balam the son of Beor (Num. 25:18)

 

Satan has mastery at tempting beings from presence. Thus, we must rely on Jesus and look up to Him. We must never boast in the season of learning; we must employ the meekness of this season to escape the adversary (James 1:21). We must stay in meekness until the work is complete.

 

God is love (1 John 4:8). This also means that God is jealousy. God does not divide His allegiance and He also wants full allegiance from us. We cannot say that we love God and love another. We must love Him wholeheartedly (Mark 12:30). God is whole; He is all. 

 

There is no man or angel that can serve two masters (Matt. 6:24-25). Gentiles define God as a means to getting their needs met, not as someone worth living for. A servant, on the other hand, defines God as life and as worth living for. We live for whatever we love. God wants to be our everyday life, not an object. To many men, God is not yet a profession. Professions to men are their jackets of life — their gods. God is a profession and He can be done.

 

Jesus is the High priest of our profession (Heb. 3:1), that is, Jesus is the High Priest of our God. We have been called to come and do God. Man lost a profession in Genesis, which was stolen by someone whose profession was once God and who wanted to become a god himself. Satan wanted to be love just as God is love. This shows that love is glory. This is why we are asked to love our brothers. If we do not love our brother, we can be cast away from the presence of God and we will not be able to fulfil our vocation.

 

God is still hidden, unseen and invisible because of who He is. God is jealous (Deut. 6:15); that is His name. This name is a very high name. Every god is jealous. The idols the Gentiles worship are not the gods themselves but the things they seek to acquire through them. God does not want to be an idol; He wants to be our flow of life. He wants to determine all aspects of our lives. 

 

When Satan does things, he sins from glory. Sins are glorious products and that is why they are enticing. What carnal men call sins are not exactly sins. We call them faults, wrongdoings or offences, but the original sin is not those things. People commit faults because of a sin that they see. Sin is life, and as such, cannot be taken away without offering life or glory. We have to be shown glory to buy our commitment. Glory causes us to repent.

 

When we see the Kingdom, we see life and glory and make a commitment to repent. Without the implementation of dominion, sins cannot be remitted. Sin is a kingdom; it is the life of a dominion. Satan was preaching sin in heaven; he was teaching a life upon the mountain. 

 

Sin is a life form that is different from the life form that God is. Sin is lustful and able to entice lust (Jam. 1:14-15). Sin pulls lust out of a person. Lust is what we dream to be but are not given permission to become. We lust after things because they are not ours. It is possible to carry sin whilst in the presence till it cuts you out. It was Satan who cut himself off, not God. 

 

Satan was the father of Cain who also left the presence of God. Satan left and the vision of Satan was no longer God’s vision. He wanted a kingdom and knew that he could not get one in God’s name. 

 

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18). Reasoning together is judgement. God tries to reason with us on how our sin can go. He wants to give us a new way of thinking and present an excellent life before us that will show us how low the life we have held onto is. Instead of scarlet, He will give us snow and wool (Isa. 1:18). 

 

What Satan created was a different love that has the ability to pull us throughout our lifetime. Satan left a dominion to create another. We are troubled because we have an opposing kingdom that is fighting a dominion that we have sworn to love. Satan’s dominion is passing away and to break Satan’s strength is to break sin and destroy death. God should be able to teach a critical number of people on earth the ability to turn completely from sinning. When we sin, we establish Satan’s dominion here.

 

“For every high priest taken from among men is ordained for men in things pertaining to God, that he may offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins: [2] Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.” (Hebrew 5:1-2). Sin is complete allegiance to Satan’s life. Satan left heaven as a high priest. A high priest is a lover of glory. A priest gives gifts while a high priest gives greater gifts. 

 

The ability to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins is reserved for priests and high priests. These gifts are things he will offer up when we come near. We are the gifts that Jesus is going to offer up to God. In addition, He will give us gifts that we are to offer up to God. Jesus will teach us how to offer up in righteousness. He wants to teach us how to take gifts and offer them. He will give us gifts against sins. 

 

Jesus gives us the gifts of light and revelation. We sacrifice for sin when we live contrary to sin. Every gift and sacrifice ends in us suffering. No sins  can leave us without suffering. Jesus suffered so that He will not sin at all points and, at the same time, gain skill on how to succour those who are tempted (Heb. 2:18). If He did not do anything to sin at the altar, He cannot come back to put an end to our own sins. The reason for purging sins in the heavens is because those sins are heavenly. Those sins are spirits; they are not sins of the living soul but are heavenly products.

 

Jesus took the blood to purge the heavens for our sakes. Only blood can be an antidote to sins in our conscience. We cannot find the blood of sprinkling by ourselves, for we have to get to the heavens. This is why the doctrine of Christ must first be obeyed to bring one to the place where the blood is. One must first be made pure by water and then the blood. 

 

We are meant to journey to the mountain upon which is the blood of sprinkling, where people are written in heaven (Heb. 12:23). We are asked to rejoice for our names are written in heaven (Luke 10:20). Our names are written in heaven because of the sins that need to be taken away from us in heaven; such sins cannot be taken away in the earth, hence the soul must be taken up the mountain. This is an uphill task and can be discouraging.

 

The Church of the firstborn is upon Mount Zion. The blood that can handle sins is called the blood of sprinkling that speaketh better than the blood of Abel. The blood of Abel, though powerful, could not remove sins because it could not write people in heaven. The blood was able to make men just (Heb. 12:24). Although the blood of bulls and goats did speak on mount Sinai, they do not speak in Zion because at the mount, there is the voice of He that shakes the earth (Heb. 12:26).

 

There are two escapes; one that originates from the speakings on the earth and then the one in heaven. The water of Christ speaks to us and raises us to heaven to hear the spoken word of God. That water also speaks and what it speaks is Christ.

 

We must not refuse Him when He speaks. The voice that shook the earth is of the same person whose voice shook the heavens; His earthly portion shook earth. Gratefully, He did not leave it there without resolving the heavenly conflict. When sins are leaving people, there is a shaking. It takes a lot for a soul to turn from Satan. Before a person turns, he may have caused a lot of trouble in the society. God uses such troubles to shake even others. 

 

There are certain things called heavens. Heavens are materials of the adversary that men carry. Everything in men, even the smallest, have a connection with Satan and he can tell when they are broken. When people remain the same, even in the face of abundant teachings, they are yet to be shaken. Some others, after they have been shaken, rise up again. 

 

It is good to allow shaking. What shakes is the blood. Minute particles have sounds that are very high. Similarly, unseen things cause big bangs in the heavens. The Bible records things that are unheard as if they are being heard so that we can know the things that take place in heaven. High powers are behind sins and it takes higher powers to remove them. 

 

What Satan did from the beginning was steadfast (Heb. 2:2-3). Even in disobedience, his disobedience was steadfast. Such things cannot be removed except by Jesus’ heavenly voice. To make people disagree for Satan to go, he must have done something great. We should not play with any little sin, not backbiting nor fornication. We do not know what we do with ourselves when we consider fornicating at this level. We are meant to be talking about the feast. We have to cry and ask God for grace upon this mountain.

 

When everlasting life is really our pursuit and we are passionate about it, every work of the flesh will disappear. There are certain gifts that will be given to us that will immediately make us know the laws that will keep them. The Godhead gave us Their treasures out of trust. God is giving us these things, knowing that we have problems and that the way to deliver us from them is to place a weight on us. Heaven wants to bring our hearts to a place where we appreciate weight. 

 

The ministry of glory is the ministry of reconciliation. What makes us accept reconciliation is the standard of glory that we see. When this happens, then the repentance that will allow iniquity to go will follow. Death is anything that can take us away from God. Death is what makes us not to obey God fully because of how we love it. Death is love, just as God is love. God is life and life is love. Death is love because death is an opposite life. Cain saw a life and he died.

 

“And God spake all these words, saying, [2] I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. [3] Thou shalt have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:1-3). Anything you cannot tie your life around is not a god. Those who hate God love something. A hater is a maker/lover of another god.

 

“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; [6] And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. [7] Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.” (Exodus 20:5-7). The mercy unto thousands is the giving of everlasting life. To hate God is to make a graven image and bow to it. To make an image is to birth your own vision that would take you away from God. If the water of Christ cannot deal with that graven image, it would take the blood of sprinkling to cleanse the soul from such.

 

“Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work…” (Exo. 20:8 -11). The revelation of the six days is the revelation of the works of everlasting life. These commandments are a reminder to the people of the New Testament that instead of making images and bowing down to them, they ought to be conformed to another kind of image and then rest on the seventh day. This makes up the works of God. Without these works being done, one cannot enter into rest. This is what translates to the reconciliation of iniquity written upon the tablets of stonehence, they are called the commandments of glory. 

“But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away…” (2 Cor. 3:7). Although the ministration of reconciliation had death and delivered some glory. However, there is a ministration that has an exceeding glory. There is a work going on in us that is intended to lead us into rest. Anyone who does this work will be blessed indeed (Rom. 1:25). To do other works would lead to a curse.

There are many glories that have held men in bodage. The things that men fear hold them in bondage. Men fear to lose what they love, hence, they continue in bondage so that they can retain their love (glory). As we interact on earth, we should do so out of love, not fear.

 

Blessings!

 

 

Transcript Summary

 

1. Though sin and death are not the same, they work for the same cause (Rom. 5:12). Sin is what death sends. If death wants to get a man, it would send sin to such a man. 

 

2. It is more difficult to love God than to love your brother (‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:20‬). Loving God is a higher love code because God is Love (1 John 4:16). A man must have loved his brother well enough to be able to love God (Matt. 22:37-40; 1 John 4:20-21). 

 

3. The hidden wisdom of God makes a man peculiar and glorious. A glorious person is one who is yielding to become the image of God. The image of God is the glory of God; it is also the truth of God (‭‭Rom.‬ ‭1:23-25). 

 

4. Eternal Life is a manifestation of the Eternal weight of glory. Glory entails taking on the image of the Son. This means one cannot come into Eternal glory without conforming to the image of the Son. 

 

5. Another word for glory is presence (Ps. 51:10). Lucifer (now Satan) was the first being to be cast away from the presence of God. Satan was a being of presence but is now perverted and dangerous with death. 

 

6. The wisdom of presence that Satan possesses is what makes him have the knowledge of things that can take a man away from the presence of God. Presence originally is closeness to God, and this is the only way you can close the gap that death wants to create between man and God.

 

7. (Zechariah 3:1-4). Satan stood to resist Joshua the high priest in God’s presence because of his filthy garment. Although this garment seemed glorious before men, it was filthy before God and he had to put it off. In like manner, we are expected to put off our filthiness (Isa. 64:6). Filthy garments refer to certain images or likenesses that we desire to look like outside of God.

 

8. God is love (1 John 4:8) and God is jealousy. God does not divide His allegiance; He wants full allegiance from men. We cannot say that we love God and still love another thing; we must love Him wholeheartedly (Mk. 12:30; Matt. 6:24-25).

 

9. Jesus is the High priest of our profession (Heb. 3:1), and our profession is God. God is Love, and love is glory. Hence, we are asked to love our brethren. If you do not love your brethren, you can be cast away from the presence of God and you would not be able to fulfill your vocation – God. 

 

10. God is still hidden, unseen and invisible because of who He is. Our God is a jealous God (Deut. 6:15; Exo. 34:14). God does not want to be placed in the category of idols that men worship. He is not a Being to be put aside for your carnal needs; He wants to be our flow of life; He wants to determine all aspects of our lives. This is because God is the future.

 

11. There are sacrifices for sin, which are sufferings for sin. God gives us the gifts of light and revelation so that we can make sacrifices for sins. We sacrifice for sin when we live contrary to sin (Heb. 5:1). As such, sins cannot leave us without suffering. 

 

12. The ministry of glory is the ministry of reconciliation (1 Corin 5:18). What makes us accept reconciliation is the standard of glory that we see. When this happens, then the repentance that will allow iniquity to go will follow.

 

12. God instructed the Israelites never to have any god besides Him (Ex. 20:1-7). Whenever a man makes a graven image and bows to it, such a man hates God. To make an image is to birth your own vision that would take you away from God.
