“Anytime is right for you’’ Jesus said…“but the right time for Me has not yet come’’…

But the right time for Jesus did come…for Him to go to the feast…for Him to go to the cross…for Him to return back to the Father….and now for Him to return in the same way He left.

And so on this day…the right time has come to loose on Earth and in Heaven what will begin the harvest that was denied the Lord 2000 years ago.

And now, as it is the right time, all who have ears to hear…hear the message…so you may appreciate His trials, that you can live the moral of the story, as we mark out the journey our Lord took with His disciples and without His disciples from the first time He sent them out….so as to fully appreciate the true amount of work Jesus really did in the short 3 years given Him to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven….and then see what happened to all of what He sowed.

See it with a clean heart, and a willing spirit…so you can go where no one has been before as we step into His footprints and set out with staff in hand to trace, and hopefully embrace, the journey He took beginning from Matt 10…which is where Jesus sent out His Twelve disciples for the first time and with blinkers off, continue to follow it through so as to prove just how many times Jesus did sent out His Twelve disciples, and see the purpose of it…the result of it…and then ultimately why we are here now, called and chosen by the Holy Spirit to be His Elect in these final years before the Lord Jesus returns to Earth in the same way He left.

And if your heart is for the Lord then it will be broken as the truth is now clearly seen.

And so this my testimony of what I have seen, and what I have come to realise as I took this particular journey through the gospels, and so can also stand up and testify, that when you eat of the confusion that is within the gospels…the confusion that is the direct result of no one listening…you then have that same confusion as you read what has been permitted to be written, in the way it was written…with gaps in the time line, disjointed accounts, and even what appears to be discrepancies and contradictions…wording that confuses the true sequence of events, even to where it seemed that it was a purposeful effort by the writers of each gospel to keep the full truth from being uncovered.

For the refusal to go to Galilee by the Eleven introduced then a line of confusion right through every church, as it was right through every gospel.

But He is the God of Truth so how can there be conflicts in His word?

There are no conflicts in His word, but the Lord allows this for the purpose of showing people it is all not as it should be.

For how many cared enough for God to investigate for God’s sake, the truth of what really happened resurrection morning.

But we know the truth of it now, for someone who loves the Lord with all his heart, soul, mind and might…cared enough for Him to find out the truth of what really happened…for all those who had previously tried to investigate the truth of Galilee, the truth of resurrection morning, were either discouraged, distracted or destroyed…but the Lord bided His time, until finally there was one whose zeal for the honour of the Lord would not let him rest until the truth was fully exposed…for God’s sake…for God’s reputation…not for the sake of his reputation, for such exposure does not reward you with a favourable reputation, for there is no reputation to be made from the exposing of the errors of the first disciples and so the errors of the church they raised up.

But from the fullness of the truth, did come the correction of the time line, and so the emergence of the Galilean lineage…the Galilean congregation…and so what would be the cause of the days of distress unequalled since the foundation of the world.

For that is the power of the truth…the full truth…and the truth of the power when the fullness of the Kingdom of God comes on Earth as it is in Heaven.

And so now in the honesty and ignorance and ability of knowledge that I have, I give this testimony of what I have found, what I have seen, and then what I have concluded in regard to how many times did Jesus really send out His Twelve disciples…and can testify that from this initial search did come much more then I had set out to find.

And so can also testify to the truth that when you eat of the confusion that is the direct result of disobedience to Jesus, then if nothing else avails from it, it will make you cry out with all your heart, soul, mind, and might for understanding, for He who is Understanding…in a situation that is beyond ALL understanding.

So this is my report, as I have seen it, of the trials of Jesus Christ in and around the period of time when He was sending out His Twelve disciples by themselves – with this process reaffirming again to me the Law of Revelation, which is, ` When you do what the Lord tells you to do, it will show you much more than you thought it could’…And how true that is!

And so as we take this journey just keep in mind that this was before their refusal to go to Galilee…and to know that this is what would have been negated if they had gone to Galilee, what going to Galilee on resurrection morning would have set right…before God and before men.

And it begins at Matthew 10…the first time Jesus sent out His Twelve disciples giving them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.

And the names of those He sent were:

Simon, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James, Thaddaeus, Simon, and Judas Iscariot. They all know who they are…for they are the Twelve disciples chosen by the Lord Jesus Christ.

And all these men who were from Galilee, Jesus sent out to preach the message that the Kingdom of Heaven is near. Sent out to heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, and to drive out demons.

He instructed them not to take along any gold or silver or copper in their belts. He told them not to take a bag for the journey or extra tunic or sandals or a staff for the worker is worth his keep…and with other instructions He sent them.

This is the first sending out of the Twelve…which is clear enough to see.

And in those days to be sent without a staff meant that the journey would be short…and so gone only for a few days…just as to take a staff signified that the journey would be longer, and so gone for at least a week, and so a staff needed to aid you in your longer walk as you wearied – and for the disciples it would have been from one Sabbath to the next, for they always returned to be with their Master on the Sabbath.

And so after the first sending out of the Twelve by Jesus, He then went to teach and preach in their towns…that is, in the towns of Galilee. (Matt 11:1)

And while He was in one of those towns, with His disciples still away, the disciples of John the Baptist, who was now in prison, came to Jesus to ask if He was the One to come or should they expect someone else…and Jesus replied to them…“ Go back and report to John what you have heard and seen, that the blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor…and blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of Me.”

And on that same day, in the same instance Jesus then spoke to the crowd in Galilee about John, saying: “From the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven has been forcefully advancing and forceful men lay hold of it”…for John who had been preaching the Kingdom of Heaven was now in prison.

So from the day John had begun preaching it until that day…Jesus was saying the Kingdom of Heaven had been advancing and forceful men had been laying hold of it…men who were doing as they were commanded to continue the preaching of the Kingdom of Heaven at His command.

For at the command of Jesus His Twelve disciples went, when they were sent, and were forcefully laying hold of the Kingdom of Heaven by doing the things Jesus had been doing…that is the forcefulness…the driving out of demons, the battle and setting free of those who are infirmed.

Jesus was speaking about His own Twelve laying claim to the Kingdom of Heaven…forcefully…and evenly violently, for they were also preaching by getting into all sorts of arguments.

And then still on the same day, in the same conversation, Jesus denounced the unrepentant cities…the ones in which most of His miracles had been performed and yet still had not repented…denouncing Korazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum…all cities situated in Galilee, the land of the Gentiles.

This one continuous flow of conversation came to an end with Jesus…`giving an altar call ’ we could say…by saying in Matt,11:28 “Come to Me you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me for I am gentle and humble in heart and you will find rest for your souls, for My yoke is easy and My burden light.’’

Then by Matt 12:1, and confirmed again in Mark 2:23 and Luke 6:1…His disciples are back…having returned from the first sending out by Jesus.

For it is written…`At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. His disciples were hungry and began to pick some heads of grain and eat them’…and so they are back, and having just gone out and done work , work to be finished by the Sabbath, they were hungry for they hurried back to be with their Master on the Sabbath, so hungry that they picked the grain to eat.

The disciples were gone less then a week for they were instructed to take no staff and so would have been sent out some time after the last Sabbath to return by the morning of the next, to be with their Rabbi.

And so it can be firmly established that they were sent out at least once by Jesus to preach the Kingdom of Heaven and that they returned from that first sending out to be with Jesus again on the first Sabbath.

But how many times did Jesus send them out…once, twice…three times?

For the scriptures are written in such a way that it appears an event only happened one time…and written in a way that it seems one event occurred immediately after the other leading us to make assumptions on the word and not investigate the word, which in turn would bring into the open what has been hidden amongst the confusion, hidden so brilliantly by the Holy Spirit, for He alone permits what is written…as He alone permits how it is written, that we may learn the lesson, which is : be careful how you read and what you read, for only then can you receive the understanding that every little word in there means something.

For if the least stroke of a pen will not by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished, how much less the description of what is done by the Lord, for the Lord, not be taken away.

And so we move on after their first return…to where…after Jesus declared to the Pharisees that the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath, He went on from that place and went into their synagogue and healed a man with a shrivelled hand (recorded in Matt 12, Mark 3, Luke 6 ) which caused the Pharisees and Herodians to then go out and plot to kill Jesus for this was not the first time He had done such a miraculous healing on the Sabbath.

Aware of this, Jesus withdrew (Matt12:15, Mark 3:7 ) to the lake with His disciples and a large crowd from Galilee followed…and when they heard all He was doing, that He was healing all the sick, many people came from Judea, Jerusalem, Idumea and the regions across the Jordan and around Tyre and Sidon to be healed by Him…which means He was in that place for at least 3 or 4 days for that is how long it would have at least taken for those people to travel from where they were to where Jesus was…for even Jerusalem was more then a 3 day walk. (Mark 3:8)

For we have to account for the time to prove that the sending out of the Twelve was not just the same event recorded in each separate gospel.

So now we have come from the Sabbath of their first return to Jesus…which is the Saturday…to approximately the next Wednesday, when Jesus, after He had healed all those who came from near and far, left the lake side and went up onto a mountainside to pray spending the night praying to God…not His Father, but God, so He could identify with sinful men who pray to God and not the Father.

And then when morning came He called His disciples to Him and chose Twelve of them whom He also designated apostles. (Mark 3:13, Luke 6:13)

So now, Thursday morning of the same week, Jesus entered a house and they brought to Him a demon possessed man who was blind and mute (Matt 12:22) and Jesus healed him so that he could both talk and see…the same day also being accused of driving out demons by Beelzebub (Matt 12:24, Mark 3:23) the prince of demons with Jesus saying to them…“If I drive out demons by Beelzebub by whom do your people drive them out, but if I drive them out by the finger of God then the Kingdom of God has come to you”…and with many other words Jesus spoke to them finishing with these words…“But I tell you that men will have to give account on the day of judgement for every careless word they have spoken, for by your words you will acquitted and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matt 12:36)

Then after that, but still on the same day some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to Jesus : “Teacher we want to see a miraculous sign from you”…to which Jesus answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah, for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth” (Matt 12:38 ) , and while Jesus was still talking to the crowd, on that same day His mother and brothers arrived and stood outside for they were not able to get near Him because of the crowd and so sent someone to call Him for they wanted to see Him and speak to Him.

(Matt 12:46, Mark 3:31, Luke 8:19)

Jesus replied to the one they sent, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?’’

Pointing to His disciples He said, “Here is My mother and My brothers, for whoever does the will of My Father in Heaven is My brother and sister and mother’’. (Matt 12:46)

Then He looked at those seated in a circle around Him and said, “Here is My mother and My brothers! Whoever does God’s will is My brother and sister and mother’’. (Mark 3:31)

And then He said, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practise’’.

(Luke 8:18)

Then that same day, approximately Thursday of the same week (Matt 13, Mark 4, Luke 8:4), Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around Him that He got into a boat and sat in it while the people stood on the shore, and He began to teach the crowds, speaking to them in parables.

(Matt, Mark, Luke)

When He had finished these parables it says in Matt 13:53, `He moved on from there’…but as there is a time gap in the gospel of Matthew at this point…then we have to pick up the time line in Mark 4:35 and Luke 8:22, to see what happened after the teaching of these parables.

`That day’ it says, in Mark 4:35 , that is the day of the parables, `when evening came Jesus said to His disciples’, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake’’ (Mark 4:35 , Luke8:22 ) and leaving the crowd behind they took Him along just as He was (for He was already in the boat) and as they sailed He fell asleep…and while He was sleeping a furious squall came up with the waves nearly swamping the boat, so the disciples who were terrified woke Jesus up and He rebuked the wind and told the waves to be quiet and be still…saying to the disciples :

“Why are you so afraid, where is your faith….do you still have no faith? ‘’(Mark 4:40, Luke 8:25).

For this was the second time Jesus had calmed a storm for them…the first time recorded in Matt 8:23.

When Jesus had calmed the storm they sailed across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes, a region in Galilee where a demon possessed man, who when he saw Jesus from a distance, (so it is was now the next morning ) ran and fell on his knees in front of Him shouting at the top of his voice…“What do you want with me Jesus, Son of the Most High’’ and Jesus proceeded to healed him of his demons giving the evil spirits that came out of him permission to go into a herd of pigs, causing the pigs of which there was about 2000 to rush down the steep bank into the lake and be drowned…which in turn caused those tending the pigs to run off and report this in the town and countryside with the people then going out to see what had happened, and so asking Jesus to leave that region of the Gerasenes because they were overcome with fear…and so He got into the boat and left.

And for all the people to have time to come from the town and countryside to see what had happened would again confirm that it was the next day.

And then the man who was healed of his demons went away and began to tell in Decapolis, that is in ten other cities, how much Jesus had done for him.

And then again Jesus crossed over by boat to the other side of the lake where again a large crowd gathered around Him while He was still by the lake, for they were all expecting Him. (Mark 5:21, Luke 8:40)

Then one of the synagogue rulers named Jairus came and fell at the feet of Jesus and pleaded earnestly with Him to come and heal his dying daughter. So Jesus went with him while again a large crowd followed Him and on His way a woman who was subject to bleeding for 12 years was instantly healed when she reached out to touch just the edge of His cloak…and then even though the daughter of Jairus had since died, Jesus still continued on His way to the ruler’s home to raise his dead daughter and give her back to her mother and father.

So it is still approximately the Friday following the first Sabbath that the disciples returned to Jesus after their first sending out…so still not one week has past.

Then as it is written in Mark 6…`Jesus left there’, that is the home of the synagogue ruler,` and went to His hometown’, that is Nazareth, `accompanied by His disciples’.

Then it says…`When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue and many who heard Him were amazed’.

Now from the timing of events up to this point…it would have been at least Thursday but most likely Friday so Jesus could not have reached Nazareth yet…for Nazareth is about 20 miles from Capernaum, and so at least a 3 day journey.

So in Mark 6:2 when it says…`When the Sabbath came’ which is the Saturday…`He began to teach in the synagogue’…it was not the synagogue in His hometown of Nazareth He was preaching in, but the synagogue in Capernaum, for while on His way to His hometown of Nazareth the Sabbath came and so Jesus began to teach in the synagogue as was His custom…where He was…for He could not have even reached Nazareth by the time the next Sabbath came, but yet in this place which was not His hometown it was said to Him :

‘’Where did this Man get these things? What’s this wisdom that has been given Him that He even does miracles ! Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon?

Aren’t His sisters here with us?’’ And they took offense at Him.

And Jesus replied to them, “Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honour’’…and He could not do ANY miracles there except lay His hands on a few sick people and heal them….and He was amazed at their lack of faith, amazed because they had already, in this place, seen so much, for they had seen many miracles performed by Jesus AND His disciples.

So what does this mean? If He had not yet arrived at His hometown of Nazareth, why does He speak as if He has, and why is it written as if He has…written as if there is only one incident where He is a Prophet without honour when in truth there was two…and so this is how it unfolds…

What Jesus was saying was this: Only in His hometown is a prophet without honour and yet here in Capernaum, where the greater measure of His miracles had been witnessed and experienced, here in this place where what He had said His disciples could to…they had done…He was receiving the same dishonour and unbelief as a prophet would only receive in his hometown…that is the town He was brought up in.

For even though Jesus had moved from Nazareth to live in Capernaum after John was put in prison (Matt 4:12) Capernaum was not referred to as His hometown but His own town…and so there were NO miracles done in His own town of Capernaum that day, for they had seen far too much to still not believe.

So significant was this incident in Capernaum, that it became the catalyst for the second sending out of the Twelve by Jesus.

So significant was it because of Deuteronomy 13 which says: “If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams appears among you and announces to you a miraculous sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder of which he has spoken takes place…AND he says `let us follow other gods (gods you have not known) and let us worship them’ you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. “

And as all that Jesus had told them that the disciples were able to do…the disciples did…so Jesus should have been honoured as the Prophet who said what would happen…did happen…AND pointing them not to another god but to His Father.

And so after this incident Jesus went around teaching from village to village…(Mark 6:6) and calling His Twelve to Him He sent them out two by two giving them authority over evil spirits and sending them out with the following instructions:

“Take nothing for the journey EXCEPT a staff, no bread, no bag, no money, no extra tunic’’ and they went out from there and preached people should repent…in other words they went out and preached the Kingdom of Heaven…for the message of the Kingdom of Heaven is “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near ”and they drove out many demons and anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

And as they were instructed to take a staff this time it meant that they would be gone for the whole week…being sent just after the same Sabbath that Jesus was deemed a Prophet without honour in the synagogue in Capernaum, making it the Sabbath after their first return, and they would again return to Jesus by the following Sabbath…just as they had previously done…for even though there is no record of the second return, the proof of it is that since they returned to be with Jesus on the first Sabbath then they would return to be with their Master on subsequent Sabbaths.

So by the time Jesus arrived at Nazareth, His hometown, His disciples were no longer with Him.

So this is the second sending out of the Twelve by Jesus to again preach the Kingdom of Heaven.

And then to pick up the journey at the correct time line again we have to go back to Matt 13:54 where it says, `Coming to His hometown He began teaching the people in their synagogue and they were amazed.’

But yet Jesus did not go directly from Capernaum to Nazareth but He went around from village to village (Mark 6:6) as He made His way to Nazareth…teaching in all the villages as He went through the land of Galilee which would have made His journey to Nazareth at least 2 or maybe 3 days longer…allowing Him time to stop and teach at each village on His way. For the Lord did not waste the journey to Nazareth by taking the quickest and most direct route, but sowed His word and deeds in every village along the way going around from village to village until Nazareth was the next town He came to.

For such was the sowing of His word and deeds in the towns and villages of Galilee.

And then He arrived in His hometown of Nazareth and was again confronted with the same dishonour, and again Jesus gave this reply, “Only in His hometown and in His own house is a prophet without honour”…and He did not do MANY miracles there because of their lack of faith, which means He did some.

For in Nazareth He was not amazed at their lack of faith for they had not seen as much as Capernaum.

But in Capernaum He was amazed at their lack of faith because of the measure of what they had already seen being done by Him and by His disciples.

But we must note that before He got to Nazareth, and even before He got to Capernaum, John was already dead even though the news had not yet reached Him, for Herod was already saying that Jesus must be John the Baptist who he had already beheaded. So even before Jesus sent them out the second time, John had already been killed at Herod’s command. (Matt 14:1, Mark 6:14, Luke 9:7)

But then after that written account of John’s death, Matthew goes on to record for us the account of the feeding of the 5000 as does Mark, but in Luke before the feeding of the 5000 there is another account of Jesus sending out His Twelve disciples.

So is it a different sending or is it one and the same as the first or the second…even though their instructions were different, and the first time John was still alive, and the second time John had already had been beheaded?

For in Luke 9 it is written…`When Jesus had called the Twelve together, He gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases and He sent them out to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.’ …instructing them to “take nothing for the journey…NO staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic”, and `they set off and went from village to village preaching the gospel and healing people everywhere’.

This time it was to preach the Kingdom of God, but were this time instructed not to take a staff…for although Jesus already knew without being told that John was dead, the news had not yet reached Him or His disciples.

But as Jesus was already aware of John’s death, He knew that this third sending out of the Twelve would be interrupted when the news reached them, for they would then hurry back to be with Him even before the Sabbath arrived…and they did, for they returned before the feeding of the 5000 which was on Preparation day. `The Jewish Passover Feast was near’.

So we now have three separate times they were sent out and have proof of their three returns back to Jesus…proving that they did go when they were sent.

Twice they were sent out to preach the Kingdom of Heaven and once they were sent out to preach the Kingdom of God…so what does this reveal…if anything…

So to find out what it does reveal…we must move to what happened next which is the miraculous feeding of the 5000. An event recorded in all 4 gospels. (Matt 14:13, Mark 6:30, Luke 9:10, John 6:1)

And it reads : When the apostles returned, that is from their 3rd sending out, they gathered around Jesus and reported to Him all they had done and taught…and then because so many people were coming and going they did not even have a chance to eat so Jesus said to them…“Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest’’ (their Sabbath rest, for as Jesus was Lord of the Sabbath, then the Sabbath for Him was any day of His choosing) and so they went away by themselves in a boat to the far shore of the Sea of Galilee to a solitary place, to a town called Bethsaida. But the crowds learned about it and followed Him on foot from the towns, because they had already seen the miraculous signs He had performed on the sick, and they got there ahead of Him. Jesus welcomed them and spoke to them about the Kingdom of God and healed those who needed healing.

Then He went up onto a mountainside…somewhere outside of Bethsaida…and sat down with His disciples.

And as evening approached, the disciples came to Jesus to find out how they were going to feed so many people saying…“This is a remote place and it’s already getting late, send the crowds away so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food’’.

But as we know, Jesus already had in mind what He was going to do, and so from five barley loaves of bread and two small fish, in that remote place outside of Bethsaida, Jesus miraculously multiplied five loaves and two fish to feed 5000 men plus women and children…so miraculous was it that there was twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish left over by the thousands who had eaten and were satisfied.

And then immediately after this display of The Kingdom of God…The Kingdom of Power…The Kingdom of Miracles…Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side.

It was late afternoon, early evening on Preparation Day…when Jesus sent the disciples out for the fourth time.

This was the fourth sending out of the Twelve disciples of Jesus Christ, but this time it was to a particular destination, Bethsaida.

Jesus sent them ahead of Him while He dismissed the crowd, who after they saw the miracle of the loaves and fishes, began to say “Surely this is The Prophet who is to come into the world’’…and Jesus knowing that they intended to come and make Him King by force, withdrew again to a mountain by Himself to pray.

But this time when He sent the disciples out, they did not go as commanded as they previously had, but took what they had now witnessed and learned from the three previous times they were sent out by Jesus and decided it would be better, for them, if they went to Capernaum…because of what they had experienced in Capernaum the last time they were there.

So they went down to the lake, got into a boat and set off across the lake not to where Jesus commanded them to go but to where they wanted to go.

And so the Twelve disciples were not sent out once, or twice, or even three times BUT were sent out four times by Jesus.

The first two times they were sent to preach the Kingdom of Heaven, and the last two times were to preach the Kingdom of God.

BUT they never went the fourth time, and because they did not go to Bethsaida as commanded, they ended up in the middle of the lake straining on the oars with the wind against them, and going nowhere – blown 3.5 miles from shore, the same distance from where they were to Capernaum!

And at the fourth watch of the night Jesus approached the boat walking on the water…fully intending to pass them by.

For what need did Jesus have of a boat to get to where He wanted to go!

What need did He have of disobedient disciples when He could do the job Himself!

What need did He have of anything…other then to see the Kingdom of God established on Earth before He had to return to the Father.

And when the Twelve saw Him walking on the lake they thought He was a ghost, and they cried out because they all saw Him and they were terrified. But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said,“Take courage ! It is I, don’t be afraid’’…and yes, after that Peter walked on the water for one fleeting moment before his faith ran out…just as it was the same lack of faith that saw them head for Capernaum and not Bethsaida…the same lack of faith that led them to cry out to Jesus to calm the storm for them before they were drowned!

They were not afraid because they thought they saw a ghost, they were afraid of Jesus, who was now walking on top of the water towards them…afraid of Jesus because they knew it was a direct result of their disobedience to His command to go Bethsaida, that they were where they were.

For they were given no other instructions this time, so it seemed, but to go immediately to Bethsaida.

But their instructions, this time, were held in the miraculous feeding of the 5000…but their hearts were stubborn and hardened for they did not understand the miracle of the loaves and fishes…and then to see Him walking on the water coming in their direction…with nowhere for them to go, to hide, or run to.

It was the presence of the Lord Jesus that they were afraid of, for they already had seen Him calm the storm and quieten the waves and still the wind…but this time, He did not say a word to still the waters or calm the wind…for why would not the Spirit of the LORD, the Spirit who is the LORD, not be against those who are against Jesus, against those who are disobedient to the word of God.

For Jesus did not say “take courage’’, so they would not be afraid of a ghost…they had already been sent out 3 times…they already had witnessed and experienced the miraculous life of the Lord, and experienced what they had done themselves because of the Lord Jesus…what reason had they to be afraid of a ghost !

None !…But were afraid of Jesus for they knew that what was now happening was the result of only one thing, and that was their refusal to go where He had sent them…their refusal to go out the fourth time they were sent.

For the other three times they had gone when sent and they had seen the results of that obedience, but now they had taken it upon themselves to decide where to go – because of the former glories – and perhaps still not realising that any success they had, and would have, was dependant on their obedience to their Master’s command.

But they knew it, when they found their plans had come to nothing…when here they were in the boat in the middle of the lake buffeted by the waves and the wind…unable to go anywhere…least of all Capernaum.

They knew it, but did not admit to their disobedience or repent of it…but knew this was the result of it, and it made them afraid…afraid of Jesus, the all Powerful One, the all Knowing One, who already knew what they would do even before they did it…already knew that they would desire the former glories even before they reached for it.

And to walk on water to Jesus, and to let Him come into the boat with them, and to worship Him, did not take courage. WHAT takes courage, and good courage at that…is to repent before God.

That is why the first thing Jesus said to them was “take courage’’…He did not say that as a response to their fear that they thought He was a ghost…it was take courage and repent…don’t be afraid to repent, for it takes more courage to repent then it does to step out on the waters and walk to Him.

For if they had repented, immediately the boat would have landed at Bethsaida and not Gennesaret, where Jesus was headed.

For even though Jesus sent them to Bethsaida He never told them He was coming with them.

But how hard it is for men to repent before God, but repentance is the only way to make it right again with God.

For the courage to step out and walk on water to Jesus is not the same courage it takes to repent, but will only leave you amazed that when you are willing to take Jesus into the boat, all is calm again…but it will never take you to where He intended for you to go.

The disciples were completely amazed because they had not understood about the loaves…their hearts were hardened…and so when Jesus did enter the boat, it immediately reached the shore of Gennesaret where Jesus was headed…not where they were meant to be headed, for now it was not the right time…the right time had past.

And with the Holy Spirit against them, no matter how they strained on those oars, they could never steer a clear path to where they wanted to go…and who can say what adverse effect may have resulted from it, if the Holy Spirit had let them have their way and go that night to Capernaum.

The fourth planned sending out of the disciples by Jesus Christ could now not be completed, the cycle not finished because the last sending out DID NOT HAPPEN…for they did not go when they were sent, for they thought it was something else.

The four times they were sent out is the four sowings in the `Parable of the Sower’.

The same parable, that when they asked Jesus to explain it to them, He said : “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? ‘’

For in their first sending out, they encountered resistance…by Satan.

The second sending out, produced no report…and so no root, which meant not much fruit.

The third sending out, was interrupted by the cares of the world…interrupted by John’s death.

The fourth sending out, never happened…because their hearts were hardened and remained hard.

For what does it take to yield the 100 fold ? It takes a noble heart, and their hearts were still stubborn and hard…as it is written “They had not understood about the loaves; their hearts were hardened.’’ (Mark 6:52)

This fourth and last sending they thought was something else, and they wanted to go back to Capernaum for they were in Capernaum the week before when they had been sent out the third time and they wanted to go back to where the Lord had a good reputation, not to where He had no reputation, like Bethsaida.

They wanted to go back to the former glories, not the new…not realising what Jesus had prepared for them in Bethsaida…`the man born blind’…so that the cycle that began with Him saying to John’s disciples:

“The blind see’’, would be completed with His own disciples without Him having being there.

For the first time Jesus recorded He would meet them somewhere, was in Galilee on resurrection morning, (Matt 26:32, Matt 28:10, Mark 14:28) for even though He sent them to Bethsaida He never told them He was coming with them, so His words which He would later say “As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you’’ would in Bethsaida, now be proved true. (John 20:21)

They never bore the 30, 60, 100 fold for the Kingdom of God.

What they did there was for the Kingdom of Heaven, for twice they preached the Kingdom of Heaven and the second time John died and went to Heaven…and as a result of that the Church raised up by the Eleven is very proficient at preaching the message of the Kingdom of Heaven but NONE are proficient in the Kingdom of God for they never completed their full sending out that was planned, no more than Moses completed the cycle that was planned for him. The striking of the rock, the speaking to the rock, and then to just think and water would have come forth from the rock. Three times for Moses, with the third never completed.

Four times for the disciples, with the fourth time never really completed.

And so from tracing the right time line we can come to where we better understand, and so have a greater appreciation of the years Jesus spent here on Earth and of His efforts while He was here to establish in three short years the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven.

For how many times did Jesus go to Capernaum, to Nazareth…how many times did He go around from village to village all over Galilee?

Backwards and forwards…across the lake and back again…for the Son of Man had no place to rest His head for as the Father was always working so was He, for that is why He was sent…that was why He came when He was sent.

So how many times did He sow the word, and how much fruit did He get out of it?

How much belief did He get out of it, and how much did all those people in all those places in which Jesus sowed His word and His deeds again and again return His word or take up the practise?

Did Capernaum or Korazin or Bethsaida become a centre for doing miracles?

For to those who have, and they had received much, more is given until they have more then enough…until they have an abundance.

For Capernaum, Korazin and Bethsaida received miracles but they did not believe Him…so what was He doing going to those places with His disciples doing miracle after miracle when all He received back was unbelief?

It WAS to have towns and cities where He had done His miracles who could then testify to His life.

He was raising up centres…raising up strongholds of His word and deeds.

Raising up towns that could testify that Jesus was here, and He opened that man’s eyes…

Jesus was here, and made that lame man walk…

Jesus was here, and that little girl lived once more…

Jesus was here, and that man was set free of his demons…

Jesus was here, and 1000’s were healed, fed, and set free…

And notice all those towns are in Galilee…and He told His disciples to meet Him in Galilee…so what would have happened to the town like Nazareth, or Nain, or any of those towns in Galilee if they had gone that morning and saw the fire on top of the mountain.

It would have been Galilee gathered around the Mt. of Transfiguration.

It would have been men and women who already had seen His miracles…men and women not even realising Jesus had been crucified in Jerusalem.

Men and women not even knowing what it cost Jesus to establish such a Kingdom on Earth.

So what was Jesus really preparing in Galilee in the land of the Gentiles?

What was all that work He did in Galilee really for?

All that work and effort that Jesus put into Galilee, was so they would have known the Eleven better than those of Jerusalem…so if they had gone to Galilee on resurrection morning and then have come down after 40 days from the Mt of Transfiguration, which is somewhere in Galilee, then the Galileans would have recognized the Eleven…that they were the disciples of Jesus Christ…!

For Galilee was not yet a nation, for it had no king, but they were known as Galileans because of where they lived.

So imagine the towns of Capernaum, Bethsaida, Gennerset, Nazareth….and all those other towns Jesus sowed His word and deeds in. All those towns that already knew His miracles, for the Lord healed 1000’s of them, fed 5000 of them who came from Galilee and some from afar.

For if there was any land and people that had been cleansed by the Lord it was Galilee NOT Jerusalem, for fewer miracles were done in Jerusalem then in Capernaum…and Jesus did many, many miracles in Capernaum before they ran out of faith.

The amount of work done by Jesus in Galilee has not been appreciated by anyone in 2 millenniums.

For everyone assumed in Jerusalem He did greater miracles BUT it was not in Jerusalem that He did His greater miracles but it was Galilee.

For the Lord had 1000’s who had experienced the power of the Kingdom of God in Galilee, and He wanted the Eleven to meet Him at Galilee BECAUSE Galilee was to be the FIRST OUTPOST of the Kingdom of God…having witnessed whose eyes were opened by Jesus…whose legs were restored by Jesus…whose sons were returned by Jesus…whose mothers, and brothers and sisters were healed by Jesus…and so on…and so on !

Men and women for whom the miracles of Jesus were nothing new…so that if the Eleven had gone up to that mountain on that morning and then came back down after 40 days with their faces radiant like the sun and preached the gospel of the Good News of the Kingdom of God, the Good News that those Galileans would have loved to have heard, those Galileans who are a people without a nation.

For there is no nation called Galilee…it is like a rubbish dump…for NO ONE valued Galilee, for they even said…“Can anything good ever come out of Galilee ‘’.

It even had pigs there, herds of them. The Galileans were less then the Samaritans and not well liked or respected by the Jews of Jerusalem and the surrounding areas.

They were men and women without a nation, without a King!

And what is the Gospel of the Kingdom of God that they would have loved to have heard?

“Believe and be baptised by Jesus…be born again that you may see and enter the Kingdom of God, and that no one who comes to Him will He ever turn away, for He offers the waters of life free.’’

The citizenship of the Kingdom of God is free…you are not born into it, nor do you have to purchase it, but it is free to all the Lord Jesus would give it…in a world where men and women are merely slaves, born into a family of slaves…or a family not a nation or part of an empire but NO NATION.

The Gospel of the Kingdom of God offers to all a nation of their own, where there is no servitude, where there is no cost, granted by their King for free…for they only have to ask.

IMAGINE…those Twelve coming down that mountain in view of all the people of Galilee and imagine in those days a woman leading them.

A woman more powerful then the men they had known, the men who had fed them and did miracles amongst them.

IMAGINE…if you were there, and it was your son who was returned to you by Jesus…and it was you who had heard of His male disciples doing miracles when sent out by Jesus.

IMAGINE…if you were there, and amongst the men who had reputations of being miracle workers like Jesus, there was a woman amongst them…a woman who once lived in Magdala though she came from Bethany, even one who would seem a doubtful representative when in Magdala.

A woman who some know as Mary Magdalene, some as Mary the sister of Martha of Bethany, and yet here she is…more powerful then the men, speaks with more authority then the men, and has such love of her King! Your King too, if you just ask to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire.

And you, a widow from Nain, with no citizenship worth speaking about, who can now be a citizen of the Kingdom of God because you believe!.

What a KINGDOM, in which women are as powerful and more powerful then the men.

The Kingdom of Miracles…THE KINGDOM OF GOD, IN GOD FORSAKEN GALILEE !!

Galilee, situated between Samaria and Judea…a bridge between Gentiles and Jews…to be the NEW NATION that would breach the gap between Gentiles and Jews making them one.

The land where Jews and Gentiles were to become one was to be Galilee, for it was to be the FIRST OUTPOST OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

The first Kingdom of God established on Earth as it is in Heaven.

The sending out of the Twelve disciples the fourth time had to be made known.

For we must understand just how many times Jesus sent them out to sow the seed of the Kingdom of God in Galilee, where the reputation of the disciples of Jesus Christ being miracle workers, was established by the Lord Himself in only 3 years.

THEY HAD NO BUSINESS BEING IN JERUSALEM ON RESURRECTION MORNING!!

They had no business being anywhere else but in GALILEE!!

That is why the Holy Spirit is resurrecting the Galileans…not the Galileans of the flesh but those who are Galilean in spirit.

For how many of the Lord’s disciples came from Jerusalem?…none.

How many came from Galilee?…all of them.

And yet with one stroke of unbelief the Eleven disciples of Jesus Christ destroyed the 3 years of sowing by the Lord…and when they did not go the fourth time to where they were sent, that is to Bethsaida, they denied themselves the fruit of their own harvest…and when they did not go to Galilee as commanded, they denied the Lord, His harvest.

That is why the Holy Spirit is resurrecting His harvest…and that is why He has called all of us…why He is calling all of His Elect, from the least to the greatest.

For not one of His elect, regardless of what we may think, would have amounted to much in this world…just as the Galileans, the rejects, who were not Jewish enough to be a Jew and not Gentile enough to be a Samaritan.

That is what He has called us for, what He has called His Elect for…

Because this time His harvest will NOT BE DENIED HIM, NOT BY ANYONE…

His harvest…is having the Kingdom of God come into the people.

The Kingdom of God within them as it is within God…as it is within the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

They sowed Themselves…Jesus, Their seed, has the Kingdom of God within Him and He who is the Kingdom of God, yielded forth the 30, 60, 100 fold of the Kingdoms of God.

Their dreams of Empires will be fulfilled through kings and lords of the King of kings and the Lord of lords.

The Holy Spirit’s Elect will raise up the disciples again and once more the disciples of the Galilean congregation will walk this Earth as His first disciples did and heal the sick, raise the dead, drive out demons and preach the gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God…and those who wish to be born again and receive the Gospel will be born again, for free…for the asking.

For the Lord did not get His first harvest from Galilee, as it was intended.

He did not get His harvest for the Kingdom of God, but merely got a harvest of the Kingdom of Heaven.

That is why they all died…and those who believed enough to die for their testimony and the word of God kept out of the Kingdom of Heaven, but under the altar, for they will come back and raise up the harvest of the Kingdom of God when only those accursed will die no less then 100 years old.

For the DAY OF HIS VENGEANCE – is the MILLENNIUM OF JESUS.

His vengeance on death for 1000 years when no one will die unless they are accursed.

The Kingdoms of the Earth will become the Kingdom of Christ until He hands the reign over to God as a foretaste as what is about to happen in the New Heavens.

A foretaste of the eternal torment that awaits Satan as he watches from the Lake of Burning Sulphur.

For he will have a foretaste of that, as he watches from the Abyss. For even though he is aware of the 2nd chance that is available for him he will not take it up, cannot take it up, for he knows the Millennium is a foretaste of the eternities that will come to glorify God and the Lamb of God, as the Kingdom of God reaches out through the eternities of the New Heavens without end.

And with God’s love, joy, peace, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, patience, self control, righteousness, truth and the sacrifice of praise…it will be filled, and so overflow, that even eternity and infinity will not have enough room for it and THAT…IS THE GLORY OF GOD.

For even now leading up to the Lord’s return and the Millennium of His reign, no matter how we desire and love to look forward to experiencing what God has for us even in this age, and then the next, it is but a grain of sand compared to the eternities and infinities of the dispensation of the Empires of God.

And so great He is, so unchallengeable He is, that no matter what…the Kingdom of God will still come.

The journey may have been different, but the end the same.

For going to Galilee would have fulfilled the parable of the “Growing Seed’’ (Mark 4:26)

“For the Kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up the seed sprouts and grows though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain, first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head, and as soon as the grain is ripe he puts the sickle to it because the harvest has come’’. The four parts of the plant is the four sendings. So it is the fourth sending that was to give forth the harvest.

But day or night whether he sleeps or gets up the seed sprouts and grows…so even if no one obeys or goes the Kingdom of God will still have its harvest, God will still have His harvest.

For neither men’s ignorance of how the Kingdom of God grows, nor his actions against it makes any difference, for the Kingdom of God will still have its way.

But it is good if that man does go out to the fields and seeks to know how it did grow.

So then we might say, what does it matter then if they did not obey or go, if the Kingdom of God still would come anyway?

It matters, in that the truth sets you free from the idolatry of the disciples and into the true perspective that their teaching and conduct of the church, came from men who did not go to Galilee and see what was meant to be seen, so it then resulted in `THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND’.

For when they did not go when sent out the fourth time by Jesus, they only received the power of one who can hear, not one who can see. And the actions of a man who can hear but not see is different from a man who can hear and see…for they could not see but had heard, so their actions of ones who had heard of the Kingdom of God but had not seen it.

For if they had been at full power before the day of Pentacost arrived, coming down that mountain 10 days before Pentacost, they could have finished preaching the gospel in those 10 days beginning at Galilee.

The preaching of the Kingdom of God to be heard by Gentiles first, and they could have gone through the entire Earth in 10 days and arrived back in Jerusalem at Pentacost to preach the Kingdom of God where the Jews were, and started such a riot that persecution broke out, and then to flee to all the cities and before it was finished, that is in less then 12 days, Jesus would have been back – back in 50 days from the day He left.

For the Feast of Pentacost stands for the Jubilee Feast…the 50th day, which stands for the day for cancelling of all debts and the returning of all lands…every nation back to its proper place because the Lord has come back with POWER !

But now we must understand that the amount of work done by the Lord Jesus in Galilee has never been appreciated by anyone in 2000 years.

And if we can see the amount of work He did in 3 weeks then how much more did He do in 3 years.

If we can see how many times He sowed His word and deeds in Galilee…

And how much fruit He got out of it…

How much belief He got out of it…

How much a return of His word He got, and how many took up the practise…

If we can now clearly see why there had to be a fourth sending out, and why they had to go to Bethsaida, and why they had to go to Galilee…then maybe we can truly see why Jesus put so much work and effort into that land and those people…and see with a clean heart and a willing spirit what He was really doing in GOD FORSAKEN GALILEE, the land of the Gentiles.

Galilee, situated between Samaria and Judea, chosen to be the new Nation that would breach the gap between Gentiles and Jews making them one.

The ` FIRST OUTPOST OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD The first Kingdom of God established on Earth as it is in Heaven…and then come back to this present day called Today, and appreciate much more the amount of work done by the Lord Jesus in the three short years He had to do it, and understand that it only took one stroke of unbelief by the Eleven to destroy the 3 years of sowing He had done in Galilee…and that when they did not go the fourth time when they were sent, they denied themselves the fruit of their own harvest…and then when they did not go to Galilee as commanded, they denied the Lord His…His harvest of the Kingdom of God.

But now it is time, for the time has come…for what did not happen…to now happen.

And so this has been my testimony, of what I have seen, and now what I know.

And as the right time has now come, then all who have ears to hear…hear the testimony…hear the message, that you may appreciate His journey…so that you can live the moral of the story…as you hear it, and as you understand it.

For it is not just about the details of the journey, but also about the spirit of the journey…about all that still remains unwritten, unspoken, and unknown…about all that still remains beyond ALL understanding.

For the Lord has bided His time and waited for His Day of Vengeance.

And so the time has come, when we must Glorify Christ, glorify the Father and glorify each other.

For if Christ is not glorified the Holy Spirit will destroy this creation as if it never has been and there will be no one…NO ONE….to stop Him!

So hear the message…heed the message…embrace the message…and look up, for your salvation is near.

AMEN
