Two Great Mysteries Revealed

“THE MYSTERY OF THE EIGHTH DAY

HE TOOK ME back into the Chamber of Scrolls, approached the ark, removed the scroll, rolled it out on the table to the passage he was looking for, then began translating it aloud: “‘You will celebrate the feast of the Lord for seven days, with a complete rest on the first day and a complete rest on the eighth day.’ It’s speaking of the Feast of Tabernacles,” he said. “But there’s something strange about it. It says you will celebrate the feast for seven days, with a rest on the Eighth Day. How do you get an Eighth Day from a seven-day feast? Seven is the number of the days in the feast and the days of creation. Every week has seven days. So then what is the Eighth Day?”

“There is no Eighth Day.”

“No,” said the teacher. “And yet there is. If the seventh day speaks of the end, then of what does the Eighth Day speak?”

“The day . . . after the end?”

“Yes,” said the teacher. “Eight speaks of that which comes after the end.”

“But nothing can come after the end . . . or it wouldn’t be the end.”

“Exactly,” he replied. “That’s the point. It contradicts everything else. Seven is the number of the days of the creation. But eight is the number that transcends the creation, that breaks out of time . . . the number beyond numbers, of time beyond time.”
“And so what exactly happens on the Eighth Day of the feast?”
“It’s a mystery,” he said. “It’s called Shemini Atzeret. It means the Gathering of the Eighth Day. The Feast of Tabernacles is the last of the holy days appointed by God, the final feast. So it speaks of what happens after the end of the end . . . after the end of days . . . the end of time. 

It’s the very last of  God’s appointed days . . . the mystery day. And we who belong to God, we are of that day. And when the creation ends, we will enter it. We will enter the day beyond days, when the finite yields to the infinite . . . the age beyond ages . . . eternity.”
He paused for a moment before continuing, “And one more secret.”

“What?”

“Those who live in the Spirit can partake of the Eighth Day . . . even now.”

“How can you do that . . . before the end?”

“Go beyond the end . . . even now . . . beyond the end of your own self . . . and you’ll find out.”

The Mission: Seek today to live beyond your circumstances, beyond the world, beyond the finite, in the day beyond days, in the Eighth Day…

Leviticus 23:39; Romans 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:1–6; Revelation 20:11”

“THE SECRET ISRAEL

WE WERE WATCHING a shepherd leading his flock through a long canyon when we noticed a second flock and shepherd descending the bordering hills to join them. The two flocks then converged as one.

“Two peoples of God,” said the teacher, “have shared this world for the last two thousand years: the children of Israel, the Jewish people, and the followers of Messiah, the Christians, the church. For most of that time they have been at enmity with each other, each seeing the other as an alien presence. But the two are joined together in a mystery. Messiah is the Shepherd of Israel. But He is also the Shepherd of those who follow Him from all nations, the church. So He told His Jewish disciples: ‘I have other sheep that are not of this pen . . .’”
“So the church and Israel are two flocks . . . yet with the same Shepherd . . . Messiah.”

“But the mystery goes even deeper,” said the teacher. “In the Book of Ephesians it is written that the one who follows Messiah, the true Christian, has become a fellow citizen in the commonwealth of Israel. Thus the two are joined together. The church is, in reality. . . a Jewish entity. It doesn’t replace Israel, but complements it. The church is, in spirit, Jewish. It is the Israel of Spirit. What the Jewish people are in flesh and blood and in the realm of the physical, the church is . . . in the realm of the spirit. To the one people belongs a Promised Land of earth; to the other a Promised Land of heaven. To the one belongs a Jerusalem of mountains and stone; to the other, the Jerusalem above. The one is a people physically gathered out from the nations; the other, a people spiritually gathered. The one is born of the promise through flesh and blood; the other, born by the Spirit. The one constitutes the family of Messiah of flesh and blood; the other, His family by spirit. The one reaps a harvest of fruit and grain; the other a harvest of eternal life. And as the spirit is joined to the body, so the two are by nature intrinsically bound.”

“But the two have been separated,” I said.

“Yes,” said the teacher, “to the detriment of each. But the consummation of the one will not come without the other, nor the fulfillment of the other without the one. For when the spirit and the body are separated, it is death. But when the spirit and the body are again united, what is it?”

“Life,” I said. “It is life from death.”

The Mission: Today, seek to find the riches of the Jewish roots of your faith and your secret identity as a spiritual Hebrew, an Israelite of God.

DEVOTIONAL

Remember to not be anxious for anything, for God is in control of all things created. Be courageous and full of confidence that God will rescue you from whatever you might face. God will always take vengeance upon his foes and save His people. God will create an everlasting pathway for His people and an entrance into the New Jerusalem. There will be no evil that will walk upon this Highway of Holiness (Key: Like a perfect stream of water flowing into the sea of Glass). The gate for the sheep will be protected by all of the Holy angels. God will guard this path with all of His might and perfect those that walk in the light. Those that follow this path will discover their inner divinity and become strong branches of God’s tree of life. The memorial of God (Fountains of Living Water) will be an everlasting sign that shall not be dismayed or ruined. It will always remain, along with those who abide by God’s commandments and desires. God’s promise of a new Holy City will be fulfilled.

 

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Righteous One

 

READ Isaiah 44:6-8:

Thus saith the Lord the king of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; beside me there is no God. And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? and the things that are coming, and shall come, let them show unto them. Fear ye not, nei- ther be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it? ye are even my witnesses. Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any. (Concordance Bible)

 

READ Isaiah 32:1-4

See, a king will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice. Each one will be like a shelter from the wind and a refuge from the storm, like streams of water in the desert and the shadow of a great rock in a thirsty land. Then the eyes of those who see will no longer be closed, and the ears of those who hear will listen. The fearful heart will know and understand, and the stammering tongue will be fluent and clear. (NIV)

 

DEVOTIONAL

The Ancient of Days proclaims all truth and pronounces all wisdom. God is very jealous of those who worship false idols and gods. God does not take kindly towards those who worship false gods because they cause harm upon God’s people. They cause confusion and misdirection as opposed to clarity and focus. Any god that causes for attention away from Jesus is evil in its own way. No matter how peaceful they may seem, they are not seeking the truth and serving God. In most cases, this worship of false gods leads to gloom and doom. We do not want to be in the darkness, but in the light—the true light that comes from Christ. We do not want to see days of vengeance and judgment, but days of light and redemption. We want to see the truth come into existence and create a new heaven and a new earth. Seek to find God, and to have Him renew your life. We all must find God along our own personal journeys, and we are to worship God as a way of life. Our worship must help to transform and save lives. We want our tongues to be sharp swords that do away with evil and promote life into eternity. God gives Liberty. True liberty derives from Him, and anyone that tells you otherwise is leading you astray. There are many false gods that enslave you and set traps for you to fall into. Being a ser- vant of God is what we are meant to be. The key here is to not be enslaved by evil, but rather be a servant of righteousness. The righteousness that comes from heaven is that which helps us obtain long life and gives us wisdom. It is important to bear the wisdom that helps one to discern truth from deceit. Do not let yourself be deceived in any way, for the Devil is very sly in his tactics to fool you and mislead you (Who did you expect to reveal the identity of this entity described in the Final Book of the Bible-Revelation?). Run the race for God. Charge and lead the way for God to reign upon the Earth. Help change the world and do away with the evil that has enslaved so many. Do not be afraid to share your personal truth with others by reflecting on your own. Who knows who might be hearing your words as you write them? You may be unknowingly ministering to angels and humans. This is what the Bible talks about: knowing that you are making a difference is key to living a fulfilling life. Living for God is ful- filling; changing the world for God is rewarding.

The Powers of Heaven

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Redeemer (Pages 103-108…)

 

READ Psalm 19:1-8

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, which is a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run

a race. His going forth is from the end of heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof. The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. (Concordance Bible)

DEVOTIONAL

(Key To Understanding) “The voice of God is one that is heard throughout the entire world!”

The voice that we have to guide us is one that we find in our meditation and while reading the Word of God. By quietly meditating, we are able to hear God and be filled with His spirit. The revelations that come from God are sometimes very quiet. This is part of understanding God. In most cases throughout history, God’s voice has been very quiet and most of His revelations have been in secret. This has happened up until the point of the Son of God coming to boldly reveal the truth. This boldness may come through writing and battles in heavenly realms. (For the Angels of God understand in full…) He will make known to all the truth of the Son of God. The power of God is for his voice to be heard unto the ends of the Earth and throughout all of the heavens. Just by speaking, God will transform the world. The transformation that we are looking for is going to happen when all prophecy has been fulfilled. The circuit that God works is one that goes out into all of the Earth. His work echoes for all to hear and experience. The basic premise of God is to make the simple wise and full of grace and truth, for the simple are some of the most godly people.

 

God is simple and wise in his ways. He does not intend to make things complicated or confusing. God is full of discernment. Running the race for the heart of the Lord is what life is all about, and will help you recognize where the true battles are fought. This is how it is in our present world.

Matthew 13:43: “Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.” (Concordance Bible)

We should live our lives shining forth as the righteous. The sun (Righteous), again, plays a very significant role in understanding the brilliance of God and the Son of God.

 

Matthew 13:44-45:

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all that he had and bought that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it. (Concordance Bible)

If you were to discover the kingdom of heaven, wouldn’t you want to move to where you found it? In the end of days, many who are seeking God will find the kingdom of heaven. The powers of the kingdom of heaven will be what control the world. The battles in heavenly realms will be where the true battle is fought and where we should understand the controlling force to be. Remember the powers of the heavens will be shaken, but the Son of God will stand and overcome all adversity. Do not be afraid. Be full of confidence that God will fulfill His purpose and reconcile His people.

Carried By the Holy Spirit

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Most Upright (Pages 60…-65)

Key Reference: John 5:22-23 (Revealing All Things…Nothing will be hidden in the End…)

“For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed “all judgment” unto the Son: that all men should Honour the Son, even as they Honor the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him…”

Key Note: The Father and Son Communicate on a different level…not of this world…Children are much smarter than you think…just imagine the brilliance of the Son of God…as a child…

 

READ 2 Peter 1:19-21:

We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts (Just as the Son arises within the Father’s Heart and He tells His Father EVERYTHING…) Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. (NIV)

READ 2 Peter 2:1

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Sovereign Lord who bought them- bringing swift destruction upon themselves. (NIV)

READ 2 Peter 2:4-6:

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment; if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others; if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly. (NIV)

READ 2 Peter 2:10-12

Bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to heap abuse on celestial beings; yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not heap abuse on such beings when bringing judgment on them from the Lord. But these people blaspheme in matters they do not under- stand. (NIV)

DEVOTIONAL

It is important to remember that at the coming of Christ, there will be justice for the righteous and an end to the ungodly. This is God’s swift redemption that is promised and foretold by the Holy Prophets. In our world today, there are as many prophets as there were in biblical times. Knowing the difference between a false prophet and a messenger of God is a must in perilous times. We must know that there are many fallen angels whose goal is to destroy God’s creation. For these angels that seek out destruction as opposed to discernment, their place is in the lake of fire. There is no excuse for causing strife, worry, anxiety, and destruction. For in the end, God will dwell among his people and they will follow Him wherever He goes. This is prophecy.

A new heaven and a new Earth will be established or created, and it will be a place where God reigns and where there is no end to His truth. In His Son, we find the living and breathing Word of God. This is what we have long awaited. Knowing what the phrase, “A Thief in The Night,” truly means is critical to understanding the new creation. The “Gate for the Sheep,” is also very important in knowing how God’s people come and go (It surely must be overwhelming to witness the gate opening and closing…How might we perceive this or understand this concept of God?). In the end, there will be no church that follows God’s truth and knows God’s Son. This is how one must interpret this piece of scripture and understand what God means when He says this. He is warning people that, even though Jesus is in the world, and the world was created by Him and for Him, pastors may not recognize Jesus. It is important to not fall into deceptive traps set out by false prophets. Trust in the words of God in the Book of Revelation and know that these events are unfolding as we speak. Jesus is the Savior that we have awaited and many have already come to Him and discovered eternal life. Many have already discovered the gate for the sheep and understand what the phrase “A Thief In the Night,” means. It is our job to spread the Word to others and to bring all peoples of all tribes together to Jesus in order that we may be a part of the new heavens and new Earth. Do not be part of the ungodly and adhere to the words written in the Bible.

Key Point: God’s timing is very sensitive…

Sorcery and Darkness Vs The Son of God

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Root Of David (Pages 126…-130)

 

READ Ephesians 6:11-19:

Put on the whole armor of God, the ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breast- plate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Holy Bible-Concordance)

 

READ 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17:

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by which the word of the Lord, that we which remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not pre- vent them which are asleep. For the Lord him- self shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. (Holy Bible-Concordance)

 

DEVOTIONAL

In the time of tribulation, there will be an abundance of persecution unto the people of God. It is key to put on the full armor of God so that you may not be deceived or overcome by your adversary, for the Devil creeps about looking to steal and destroy. The battle between God and Satan can be portrayed as Superman versus the worst criminal in the history of the world. This criminal has kryptonite that he attempts to inflict

upon the Son of God. This is the only weakness of Superman. But, just as it is written in Revelation, The Son of God, condemns Satan to an eternal doom. No one wants to be associated with Satan whatsoever. He is a master manipulator, liar, and illusionist. We have to be able to recognize Jesus. Remember that He was labeled as a criminal during His time here on Earth. Just think about what He had to overcome and understand in order to save the world. The truth is that there is no power left for Satan at the coming of The Son of God. The worst of the worst who have, in a sense, crucified Jesus will be judged and God will make His decision. Remember that God is Christ and Christ is God. The two are one and the same. They have the right to judge. The battle against the opposition exists in high places and in heavenly realms. Knowing what will happen to

them should terrify the rulers of the darkness of this world. The keys of death and Hades belong to God. There is no tolerance any longer for the spiritual wickedness at the coming of the Son of God. The only real hope that the world has will be in the Savior. He is all that Christians have to hold on to, but those who stand firm will inherit the kingdom of God. Just be sure to put your armor on and to be of sound judgment during this time. Jesus is the Son of David, the lion from the tribe of Judah. This simple truth must help those who are lost to find their way home.

The Revealing of Hearts

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Man Of Sorrows (Pages 46-50…)

 

READ Matthew 5:44-46: “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends the rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

READ Romans 10:8-13:

But what does it say? “The word is near to you; it is in your mouth and in your heart,” that is, the message concerning faith that we proclaim: If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.” For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile- the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

 

READ Philippians 1:6:

And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will continue until the day of Jesus Christ {right up to the time of His return}, developing {that good work} and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.

 

READ Ephesians 2:10:

For we are God’s (own) handiwork (His work- manship), recreated in Christ Jesus, {born anew} that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us {taking paths which He prepared ahead of time}, that we should walk in them {living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live}.

DEVOTIONAL

Knowing that we build strength through perseverance is the key to overcoming persecution. We are to be strongholds for one another—not tear each other down, but instead build each other up. However, when you find a brother or sister acting in ways that are not pleasing to God, you must point out where they can eliminate possibility for severe consequences. In the end, it is between you and God. We will answer for all that we have done on this earth and God will judge us according to our hearts and wills for His truth. It is important to know that with God all things are possible, but it is also important to know that there are two sides to God. God corrects those whom he loves, and He understands the invisible battle. The way that I look at it, who is one that attempts to destroy or confuse the Son Of Man, or ANY child of God? Life is a test. God allows for certain things to happen in order for hearts to be revealed. Symbolism is key to understanding God’s Word. Reading books on symbolism helps us to realize people’s motives. We should clothe ourselves with Godly images. Images can be defined many different ways and are very important in the Bible. If you remember anything, remember that God’s image is what we seek.

The Sacred Geometrical Design of A Rose Bursting Into Life…

God’s Secret: Disclosing God’s Hidden Truths of the Bible

Chapter: Majesty On High (Pages 42-45)

 

READ Romans 8:18-23:

Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. (J. NLT)

 

READ Psalm 91:11-16:

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands (train your fingers for battle), so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. Because he loves me, says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.

(NIV)

 

DEVOTIONAL

We eagerly await the day when God will reveal the future glory of the new holy city, which he has planned from long ago. We all suffer as Christians in the world. This is due to the world without God, and the spirits that haunt the Earth. We must always wear the full armor of God in order to deter the temptation of evil and to steer away from bad situations. In the world there are many spirits, but remember to test the spirits to see if they are of God. Many false prophets and messiahs have come, but we must be aware of the deception that is ever present. Look to those who bring you light and truth. Look to those who know how to defend themselves against the evil spirits in the world (Remember that just by using your hands you may eliminate the wicked…for this is how the angels of God battle-Psalm 144:1). It is normal for humans to be tempted and attacked by spirits that are not of God, so be mindful of this fact. Do not allow for them to approach you by maintaining the Holy Spirit within your heart. The Holy Spirit will perfect your mind and keep you from the day of testing that is to come upon the whole Earth. It is each and every person’s job to write about your obstacles and temptations in order that you may not fall into traps laid out before you.
