The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed.  For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the One who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.[1]  I say to you, the time has now come, and now is …

“See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare; before they spring into being I announce them to you.”[2]  “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”[3]  “Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.  And the glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind together will see it.  For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”[4]

What and how much is it about our Lord God Almighty’s mighty plan of creation, which has been seen, yet not seen in the details of, and therefore has neither been received nor understood as we have neither sought to discover and locate, nor have we searched to make a thorough examination and investigation of in order to find that which was lost to us, and so has been concealed until the time of the sons of God is revealed and now is?                             

For we have now been given to see with the eyes of our heart that we may see in the Light of the Truth, the Light of His Love, the Light of His Glory, and the Light of the Resurrection, and now, all things are to be resurrected by the power of The Spirit of the Resurrection and of The Resurrection Himself, as given to the sons of God who are now being revealed, even as the darkness is settling like a dense heavy blanket of all enshrouding fog upon this world… so that the glory of creation will be revealed in all its majesty and superabundant magnificence of superlative design at such a superior quality and quantity of creative intelligence in every way as not known nor yet comprehended by man… to now be uncloaked by the Light of The Resurrection that it may once again bask in the now-being unmasked radiance of the Light of the Resurrection of the Glory of the Perfect Image of God… a light that will pierce even the uttermost thickness of the terrifying darkness that is coming upon this world and has now begun… 

And what is it that has been hidden under the canopy of the thick dreadful darkness wherein the Lord has dwelt that may be revealed only to those who throw off the Light of Fear so that they can see by the Light of Love, and of which the hearts of those who will not receive Him can only reflect, for God did say, “I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.”[5]?   

For if each and everyone of us would stop to take notice and observe the creation freely given all around us, we may espy one of the tiniest creatures of the family of aphids, so small that it appears to be not more than a mere speck, yet we find it living on the most glorious of landscapes, that of the fragile petal of one of the most humble and smallest of flowers… a petal of which its skin houses myriads of reflective delicate pearls… A treasure field to be sure, at no cost to the aphid, and considered not with the appreciation it deserves nor priced by man as of any value… yet a treasure of the highest of value, because it came directly from the Father’s heart and now reflects back to Him the incredible depths of the frangible beauty of His heart in all its glorious softness, intricately woven and held together with a tensile substance of unbreakable strength of a matter not discovered and thereby unknown by man…  

And as for this tiniest of creatures, which has eyes that appear to be like large mulberries, and legs of translucent topaz covered in an even more miniscule pattern of filigree and pearls, that has been given to live in the midst of the treasures of the Father’s heart revealed… the unmatchable magnificent all glorious yet most humble Master Craftsman who is our beloved God… did not leave it dressed poorly with clothing which is not fit for the king it is, that it is given to live on this priceless field, but did swathe it in multitudes of what appears to be like round chrysolite gems of which the Lord Jesus’ own body was in the appearance of when He revealed Himself to Daniel in a vision…

And rather, what is it now, which is being revealed, that if we cannot see with eyes that see in the Light of Love, we have become blinded, for so glorious is its radiance …the same terrifying radiant energy of lightning that whip-cracked as the thunder roared commandingly behind the loud hail call of the trumpet as it saluted the Lord God Almighty’s Presence, and the mountain billowed with smoke as the Lord descended on it in fire… and did that day sift the hearts of the Israelites who trembled in fear?  Yet no one other than Moses dared to desire a personal relationship with He who spoke directly to them from that Mount to give them the 10 commandments[6] …one commandment for each miracle of deliverance they had been given, at no cost to themselves.  That day their hearts mirrored not a reflection of God’s splendorous shining radiance… He who was their Deliverer and Saviour, who brought them and the silver and gold of the Egyptians out of a land of slavery with only 10 mighty miracles as had never been seen or heard of before or since until this day… but rather their hearts were a reflection of the thick darkness of the dense clouds which cloaked Him as they encompassed the mountain whereon He ascended to meet with them, that He might… just might… draw near to them…

And though the Lord would speak to Moses face to face as a man speaks with his friend[7], Moses was to only see God in the thick darkness[8] and then in the cloud of the glory of the Lord, which appeared to the Israelites to be like a consuming fire.[9]  Yet the plumb line had been drawn in Mosesheart that separated him unto God because his love of God had overcome the fear of the darkness that he and the Israelites were tested with, and brought him to that place that he did commit himself to be submissive in learning with such a consuming desire to please the Lord that he boldly requested, “…teach me Your ways so I may know You and continue to find favour with You…”  And his reasoning was so for the honour of the Lord that Moses told Him, “Remember that this nation is Your people…  What else will distinguish me and Your people from all the other people on the face of the Earth?”[10]  And so Moses in his growing confidence, said to the Lord, Now show me Your glory.” 

And the LORD said, “I will cause all My goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim My Name, the Lord, in your presence.  I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.  But you cannot see My face, for no one may see Me and live.  There is a place near Me where you may stand on a rock.  When My Glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.  Then I will remove My hand and you will see My back; but My face must not be seen.”[11]

And again on the following morning, the LORD came down in the cloud and stood there with him and proclaimed His Name, the Lord.  And He passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin…”  Moses bowed to the ground at once and worshipped.[12]  Then Moses asked the Lord to go with them and the Lord said, “Do not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose Name is JEALOUS, is a jealous God.”[13]  And Moses was there with the Lord forty days and forty nights…[14]  He spent so much time in the Lord’s Presence that the emanating radiance of the Lord left such a reflection on Moses’ face,[15] it caused those very same people who had freely received the deliverance they had been crying out for, yet who were now with darkened hearts, to even fear the reflection on Moses’ face of the radiant glory of The Lord God Almighty, of which Moses’ face was so shining that he had to place a veil over it so they would see not even that very reflection of their Saviour, who is the same yesterday, today and forever…  

This very same radiance caused Peter to become so flustered, that he spluttered about building shelters because, he did not know what to say, they were so frightened[16] as he, James and John were in the presence of Jesus who was transfigured before them.  His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light, dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them, as bright as a flash of lightning.[17]  And of whom, Daniel wrote of his experience:  I looked up and there before me was a Man dressed in linen, with a belt of the finest gold around His waist.  His body was like chrysolite, His face like lightning, His eyes like flaming torches, His arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and His voice like the sound of a multitude.  I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; the men with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves.  So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale… and my heart trembled… and I was helpless.[18]  Ezekiel recorded:  Above the expanse over their heads [the four living creatures] was what looked like a throne of sapphire, [or lapis lazuli] and high above on the throne was a figure like that of a Man.  I saw that from what appeared to be His waist up He looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down He looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded Him.  Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around Him.  This was the appearance of the likeness of the Glory of the Lord.  When I saw it, I fell facedown… upon my face[19]

And John the Beloved who had spent three years with Him, wrote of his own experience:  I saw seven golden lampstands, and among the lampstands was someone “like a son of man,” dressed in a robe reaching down to His feet and with a golden sash around His chest.  His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes were like blazing fire.  His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and His voice was like the sound of rushing waters.  In His right hand He held seven stars, and out of His mouth came a sharp double-edged sword.  His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.  When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as though dead. [20]

And the LORD asked [Amos], “What do you see, Amos?”  “A plumb line,” [Amos] replied.  Then the Lord said, “Look, I am setting a plumb line among My people…  I will spare them no longer.  The high places of Isaac will be destroyed and the sanctuaries of Israel will be ruined; with My sword I will rise against the house of Jeroboam.”[21]  The house of Jeroboam was that of he who reinstated the golden calf[22]… not just one… as Aaron had carved when the people would not wait for Moses whilst Moses was in the presence of God… but two, even though Jeroboam knew how vile this was to the Lord and how the Israelites were punished for this cruel, apathetic act of rebellious indifference and careless, impatient ingratitude to their Saviour who is the only true God!  And Jeroboam added insidious insult to insidious insult on He who also is our Lord God… who gave him the 10 tribes of the Kingdom because Solomon, his King, had forsaken the Lord and not walked in His ways, and neither did what was right in God’s eyes, nor kept His statutes and laws[23] …by mimicking the words Aaron said to the whinging people when Aaron carved for them the one golden calf, “Here are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”[24]  Yet, this time, Jeroboam himself, seeing only by the Light of Fear, led the people astray by defiant treason, that he may take over and control for himself this kingdom, which was generously and freely given to him at no cost to himself to look after and guide carefully in the ways of the Lord God Almighty…

And today this house is alive and well in the church, the one given the 10 shares, the 10 tribes of the Kingdom… shares that were taken away from the former caretakers who forsook the Lord God Almighty and who recognised not His Son, nor gave careful ears to hear correctly what Jesus did say… shares that had been given to the previous house, the house of Jeroboam, with this covenant:  “ ‘If you do whatever I command you and walk in My ways and do what is right in My eyes by keeping My statutes and commands, as David My servant did, I will be with you.  I will build you a dynasty as enduring as the one I built for David and will give Israel to you.  I will humble David’s descendants because of this, but not forever.’ “[25]  And the church was given its own new command by God the Father for the New Covenant of the Son, “This is My Son whom I love.  With Him I am well pleased.  Listen to Him!”[26] 

The Lord asked Jeremiah: “What do you see, Jeremiah?”  And Jeremiah replied, “I see the branch of an almond tree.”  The Lord said, “You have seen correctly, for I am watching[27] to see that My word is fulfilled.”[28]  And Jeremiah the prophet said to all the people of Judah and to all those living in Jerusalem:—the word of the Lord has come to me and I have spoken to you again and again, but you have not listened.  And though the Lord has sent all His servants the prophets to you again and again, you have not listened or paid any attention.[29]

“Now be strong, O Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, Be strong, O Joshua son of Jehozadak, the high priest.  Be strong, all you (remnant of the) people of the land, and work, for I am with you.  This is what I covenanted with you when you came out of Egypt.  And My Spirit remains among you.  Do not fear.  In a little while I will once more shake the Heavens and the Earth, the sea and the dry land.  I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory.  The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine.  The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house.'”[30]

So who is the High Priest, and who are His sons and who are the remnant of the people?  Jesus… has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek.[31]  And Abraham gave Him a tenth of everything.  First His Name means “King of Righteousness”, then also, “King of Salem” means “King of Peace”.  Without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, like the Son of God He remains a priest forever.[32]  For Jesus said, “Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing My day, he saw it and was glad.”[33]  Is not this High Priest God Himself, of whom we have been brought into Sonship through the Spirit of Sonship, and by Him we cry, “Abba, Father”?[34]  We have a great High Priest who has gone through the Heavens, Jesus the Son of God…[35]  “You are My Son; today I have become your Father.  You are a priest forever…”[36]  Yet Jesus declared, “I and the Father are One.”[37]  “I have given them the glory that You gave Me, that they may be one as We are One: I in them and You in Me.” [38] 

For who is Judah now, this tribe that is not of the house of the church, but of the original line of the royal blood of the King of kings, from which the King came from of whom David called Him Lord[39]?  Is it not those who are grafted into the Vine that is Jesus who said, “I am the true Vine and My Father is the Gardener.  Remain in Me, and I will remain in you.  No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the Vine.  Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in Me.”[40]  “If you remain in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given you.  This is to My Father’s glory that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples.”[41]  “You did not choose Me, but I chose you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last.  Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in My Name…”?[42]  And the people are the remnant from the whole tribe of the former Israel that was delivered with 10 mighty miracles from Egypt… a people who have held onto what they know and have seen or heard of the glory of God, and are unable to accept the golden calves presented before them by those who wish to reign over them that they may maintain a form of kingship, yet without the power and glory of God…   And what is this Egypt that this present remnant doe come from, which has enslaved them that the Lord has once again said, “Come out of her, My people”?[43]  

Then the angel… asked [Zechariah], “What do you see?”  [Zechariah] answered, “I see a solid gold lampstand with a bowl at the top and seven lights on it, with seven channels to the lights….”  So he said to me, “This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty.  “What [Who] are you, O mighty mountain?  Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground.  Then he will bring out the Capstone to shouts of ‘God bless it!  God bless it!’  The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it.  Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent Me to you.  Who despises the day of small things?  Men will rejoice when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.”[44]  And the governor of Judah now is the one to whom the Book of Law has been reinstated for the task to rebuild the Temple.  When Josiah had sent his secretary Shaphan to the high priest to collect the money that had been brought into the temple of the Lord, the high priest gave Shaphan a book, saying “I have found the Book of the Law in the temple of the Lord.”  Though the officials paid out the money that was in the temple of the Lord and entrusted it to the workers and supervisors at the temple,[45] the true temple of the Lord is our flesh, and it was here that the Temple was rebuilt with the Book of the Law and is now being rebuilt as the law of the New Covenant is being re-established in the hearts of the people and they devote themselves to the narrow path of diligent fastidious listening to Jesus and the humble obedient practice of His words.[46]

At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour… for the sun stopped shining.  And at about the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” – which means, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”[47]  … And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, with a loud cry, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit,” He breathed His last and gave up His spirit.[48]  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.  The earth shook and the rocks split.  The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life.  They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people.[49]  When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, heard His cry and saw how He died, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely He was the Son of God!”  And the centurion praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous Man.”[50]    

And what are the preparations being carried out behind this covering of the thickest canopy of darkness that did come and is now again coming upon this Earth, and even now is, that are to be unveiled upon the arrival of our Lord Jesus Christ, for is it not written:  Will not the day of the Lord be darkness, not light— pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?[51]  “After the suffering [anguish] of His soul, He will see the Light of Life and be satisfied…”[52]  Is it not the demolition of the old and the construction of the new?  See, a King will reign in righteousness and rulers will rule with justice.  Each man 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.[53]

For the creation was subjected to frustration… by the will of the One who subjected it in hope.  For the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God[54] that our Father may never again live within a canopy of darkness, but live in the fullness of the freedom of the glory of the Resurrection of the All of Light…

Go now for:  “The Spirit of the Lord is on you, because He has anointed you to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent you to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”[55]   Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes.  He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts.  At that time each will receive his praise from God.  For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.[56]  For He said, “I have come into the world as a Light, so that no one who believes in Me should stay in darkness.[57]

And again I say, go now:  “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.  See, darkness covers the Earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and His glory appears over you.  Nations will come to your light and kings to the brightness of your dawn.  Lift up your eyes and look about you:  All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm.  Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy…”[58]  And your eyes will see the King in His beauty and view a land that stretches afar.  Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken.[59]
