“Gary, you have a beautiful face.”
There are several reasons Christianity has never been able to defeat Satan, two of which are – timing and legal ineptness. If at any time Christianity had known the things the second Remnant are being shown today, they still could not have defeated Satan. He was given the legal right to enter into and possess the church for 2,000 years, and only now has this time period come to an end.
Yahshua gave him, or at least attested, this legal right when He allowed Legion to enter into the 2,000 swine. Satan also had the legal right to sift Christianity like wheat for 2,000 years. Wheat is always representative/prophetic of Christianity. Pentecost is the wheat harvest, and is observed with two loaves of leavened wheat bread. (Barley does not have the gluten in it needed to rise with the addition of leaven; barley is always the Remnant, the unleavened Passover bread.) So when Yahshua said that Satan had “demanded” to sift Peter like wheat (Luke 22:31), more specifically he had “demanded” to sift Christianity, and that right was granted or attested through what happened to Peter.
These legal actions of Satan are likewise seen when he gained from Yahweh the legal right to afflict and test Job. But as in the case of Peter, once again he was gaining authority per the kingdom realm, actually receiving permission to afflict and test Christianity. You will notice in Job’s life the unmistakable picture or pattern of the church - Job was blessed, then he was sorely afflicted by Satan, then all he had was restored to him in double portion. This is - first Remnant -> Christianity -> second Remnant. And when Satan gained the right to afflict Job, because of the shared pattern with the church, we see that he also had a like legal right to afflict Christianity – the former reflecting and revealing that which was to take place in the latter. Let us see another example of how the court of heaven works.
We will begin by identifying the subject account here specifically with Christianity. In 1 Kings 22:17 we read a most accurate description of Christianity – “I saw all Israel scattered on the mountains, like sheep which have no shepherd.” This has been the condition of Christianity since the Shepard was struck – “Strike the Shepherd that the sheep will be scattered” (Zechariah 13:7). Yahshua’s crucifixion and His being taken out of the midst of the sheep to remain in heaven, had an impact, or even fulfillment, that went far beyond just the disciples scattering when Yahshua was crucified. Like Peter being sifted or Job being tested, their being scattered was a minute representation of a fulfillment that was much larger.
With the Shepherd’s crucifixion and removal to heaven, for nearly 2,000 years the sheep have been scattered, seemingly more so now than ever before. Today, the sheep are now scattered into 22,000 denominations and sects with absolutely no unifying shepherd/government/head over them. Since there is no unifying Shepherd, they continue to remain disbursed, scattered, divided throughout the world, divided in cities and towns, divided in communities, divided in neighborhoods, even divided in families. But even more revealing, we see in the next passages how Yahweh indeed brought the affliction of Satan upon breach Christianity (including the first Remnant). In verses 19 through 23 we continue reading:
“Therefore, hear the word of Yahweh. I saw Yahweh sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by Him on His right and on His left. And Yahweh said, ‘Who will entice Ahab to go up and fall at Ramoth-gilead?’ And one said this while another said that. Then a spirit came forward and stood before Yahweh and said, ‘I will entice him.’ And Yahweh said to him, ‘How?’ And he said, ‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ Then He said, ‘You are to entice him and also prevail. Go and do so.’ Now therefore, behold, Yahweh has put a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all these your prophets; and Yahweh has proclaimed disaster against you.”
This is that which has taken place in Christianity for 2,000 years, but more specifically since the test of Carmel began in 1948 (attested in part by the fact that the World Council of Churches began in 1948, along with an array of equally relevant events). A spirit/Satan gained legal right to enter into the prophets and teachers and pastors of all Christianity as a deceiving spirit so as to deceive them in order that Yahweh might judge them. This deceiving spirit is “the great dragon,” the “serpent of old who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world” (Revelation 12:9).
There is something very important to realize about Satan. People think that he is a very powerful being. Of himself, he is not. Let us go to Isaiah 14 where we find a description of him. In verse 12, he is identified as the one who has “fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn!” Continuing, we find here a most interesting observation. Once he loses his place of authority on this earth and goes to the pit, we read in verses 16-17:
“Those who see you will gaze at you,
They will ponder over you, saying,
‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,
Who shook kingdoms,
Who made the world a wilderness
And overthrew its cities,
Who did not allow his prisoners to go home?’”
Satan, of himself, is not impressive in strength, for the power that he has is not by his own strength. What then is his power? Satan’s power is in his ability to know and practice law. Satan is a lawyer, the best lawyer, and he knows how to use the laws of Yahweh to his destructive purposes. We can in no wise dismiss the power he has in his role as the devil; but, it should be realized that his great ability is not in personal strength, but in his legal prowess.
As we expose this about Satan, it is most fitting that of the four gospels, the ill deeds of the lawyers were exposed only in second Remnant Luke. Why? Because it is only now that the ill deeds and works of Satan as an incredible lawyer are being revealed/exposed – Satan has entirely corrupted the kingdom and brought men to death. And once Satan is revealed, once light comes, he is thereby cast out and defeated – the tent peg enters into his head and pierces even to the cursed ground. Satan cannot exist with his wiles in the light of truth, for his days are relegated to the time of darkness; and with the second Remnant at hand, Light is at the door! An attesting evidence of this light is the fact that “Luke” means “light”!
In light of this work that now exposes Satan, let us see in Luke what Yahshua has to say about lawyers, of which Satan is the chief. When He said these things, He was revealing the heart and purpose of Satan as well. And most revealing, lawyers and religious leaders were the only two groups Yahshua rebuked. But first, let us see an assessment of lawyers in Luke 7:30.
But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected God’s purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John (Luke 7:30).
Today, those who will not enter into the baptism of the second Remnant John work, equally reject God’s purpose, identifying themselves as Pharisees and lawyers. Now let us go to Luke 11 for some revealing commentary on the lawyer, Satan. After sorely rebuking the Pharisees in verses 39-44, a lawyer spoke up.
“Teacher, when You say this, You insult us too.” But He (Yahshua) said, “Woe to you lawyers as well! For you weigh men down with burdens hard to bear, while you yourselves will not even touch the burdens with one of your fingers. Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets, and it was your fathers who killed them. … Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge; you did not enter in yourselves, and those who were entering in you hindered” (vss. 45-52).
And this is precisely that which Satan has done. As a lawyer, he has weighed down man with heavy burdens and killed/silenced the voice of the prophets of truth and taken away knowledge. Christianity has directly suffered under this affliction so that the vital knowledge of the truth has continually been destroyed.
By way of further examination of the wiles of Satan as a lawyer, about which we are gaining vital truth (so as to expose and defeat him), we read in The Passing Over Principle the following point:
We have already stated in The Issue – II and in other places that the mark of the beast on Christianity is the number seven. From where did they receive that mark? From legally killing the first Remnant and coming under the sevenfold curse of Cain. Thus, after Yahshua swept clean the house of God, casting out Satan, and then left and stayed in heaven, Satan returned and found the house swept and in order and went and got “seven other spirits more evil than itself” (Luke 11:24-26). By what legal authority did Satan have the right to do this (for he cannot do anything unless it is legally allowed)? From the curse of Cain. Satan could thus go before Yahweh and by legal precedence have the right to go and get the “seven other spirits more evil than” himself. These seven spirits came via the testimony we see here regarding Cain – the first Remnant was killed by Christianity and thus received the curse of the mark of the beast.
Here we see just one more example of how Satan gains the legal right to perform his works. Hebrews 2:14 says Satan “has (present tense) the power of death.” He has that power because it is legally given to him. Again, Satan’s strength is his legal power. This is the power he obtained when he went into the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and tempted Eve. Satan had a legal right to enter into the garden of God, and he continues to use that right to bring all men to death, even kingdom men!
Acknowledging his great and yet-unsurpassed legal deftness in the church, let us note one more thing concerning him. Though he is a being of great authority, he is also a being under authority. The next point is critical. If we are to ever defeat Satan, we must do so legally. Satan must be defeated by his own power base, on his own grounds – the law. He cannot be defeated any other way. (This does not exclude the testimony of Revelation 12:11, which relates to the first Remnant first bird that had to die [or even Christianity]. The second Remnant cannot die, but must perform the second blow to Satan that kills him. This requires a correct application of law and truth.)
Let me briefly give a personal example of this matter of legal accuracy. Satan once entered into me because I afforded him the legal opening – I cursed and did not repent. I was like Peter, who equally opened the door for Satan when he cursed and subsequently went out and wept bitterly (not for cursing, of course - first Remnant Matthew 26:74 and Christianity Mark 14:71). On an evening after that, Satan began tormenting me to the point that I could not stand it, and I began crying out in agony. Seeking my deliverance, I addressed him – “Satan, in Jesus name, get off of me! Satan, get off of me!” Over and over I said this; but, he went nowhere, and the agony went on undiminished, except for some abeyance secured by the prayers of my now gathering family. Finally, in a cry of desperation, I said – “Satan, get out of me!” Instantly he was gone, and the tempestuous storm inside me immediately stilled to a soothing and greatly welcomed calm.
What made the difference? I had been taught in Christianity that Satan could not possess you, but only oppress you. They were wrong! As long as I addressed Satan illegally, basing my address to him on false Christian teachings that he was only on me, I was not accurately addressing him as to where he truly was; so, legally he did not have to go anywhere. He was not located where I was addressing him, so he did not budge. Only when I addressed him correctly, did he instantly leave me. Thus we see - legal accuracy and truth are essential for defeating Satan. Otherwise, he has every legal right to stay where he is.
This was a very telling experience for me, and points to the essential truth that if we are to defeat Satan, we can accomplish this only with legal accuracy. Otherwise, he has every right to stay where he is and to do what he has been given the right to do for 2,000, even 6,000 years.
Today, there is only one possible way to defeat Satan – by the law! First, legally his time is up. This is crucial. The 2,000 years in which Satan has had the legal right to afflict Christianity are complete, so we have this first essential legal point working for us. But more has to be done! Satan has a legal right both to Christianity and the world, so as long as one is legally associated with these two areas, he has a legal right over you and there is nothing you can do to overturn him. Thus, the only way we can defeat him is to come out from those two areas of his rightful authority. Does this not make sense? But in order to do this, there must be a legal way whereby we can do so – a city of refuge! There has to be another governmental covering whereby we can have legal protection from Satan. Let us consider our “way of escape” in both of these areas.
First, we must come out of Christianity. Satan has every legal right to take Christianity to death, so he can never be defeated from any position within the body of Christ. It is utterly impossible (which has been well demonstrated for the last 2,000 years), insomuch that he has authority over the body, the same authority he equally had to take Yahshua’s own body to death (again seeing a more focused individual representation, that has its fulfillment in a much larger application). As went Yahshua, so has gone the body of Yahshua, Christianity.
Never before has there been a legal opportunity to come out of the body of Christ and remain in the kingdom of God. For 2,000 years, Christianity has been all there is. But today, this is different. Yahshua is opening a door no one can close, and He will soon close this door and no one will be able to open it. This is the way for the Bride to come out of the body. This door of hope affords the Bride the legal opportunity to come out of Satan’s rightful legal authority and corruption, making it possible for us to defeat him.
But we also know that coming out of the body poses another very real and imposing problem. For 2,000 years the body of Christ has provided a vital legal covering for kingdom men and women, and when the Bride comes out from under the covering of the body, then she is uncovered! Something must happen to then place another covering over her. (This is the precise message found in 1 Corinthians 11:1-16.)
Why is Satan a lawyer? For a very important reason – because Yahweh is law! Satan knows how to get power and authority from Yahweh – he obtains it and effects its use through the law. So, if we as the Bride are going to move Yahweh and defeat Satan, we too must be as wise as that serpent and use the law as well. If any one thinks they can be a Bride without Yahweh’s vital covering, they will find out too late they are sorely wrong.
In 1994 when the Spirit of Yahweh came upon me, I saw this problem and asked Him what the vital covering for the Bride was. He waited three days to tell me, but He showed me that it was the same covering that the first Remnant possessed – holding all things in common. There is absolutely no substitute for this. It is the “garments of skin” covering that the Son of God placed upon the first Remnant when He came the first time, and it is the garments of skin covering that must be placed, that we must place, upon the second Remnant as well. This covering is absolutely VITAL in order to legally come before the Father, to pray and to prophesy (1 Corinthians 11:5), and to come out from under the power of Satan’s domain within the body of Christ, the synagogue of Satan.
Thus, we find two vital steps here – first, one must come out of the body of Christ, or Christianity; BUT, in so doing one must then come under the covering of holding all things in common with the Bride. But as we examine this further, there is actually another vital thing this specific covering provides.
For 2,000 years, Christianity has had the partial fig leaf covering of the tithe. By taking some of Satan’s worldly wealth and giving it to Yahweh, they have at least made for themselves a legal way, a future hope, for deliverance from him. While this has proven to be an inadequate covering, it has at least been sufficient to give them legal hope and a right to the future kingdom; but, it has not delivered them from Satan. The legal covering that the second Remnant comes under in order to be fully delivered from Satan, is to hold all things in common. By coming under this covering, the first Remnant was legally removed from this earth and sealed to Yahweh. Their departed souls now wait for their brethren to form – the second Remnant. And the only way we today can legally come out from the rights of Satan who owns this world, is to follow in their way and come out from his cursed system of laboring by the sweat of our brow – laboring to fulfill the demands of this world, the earth. By holding all things in common, we come out of this worldly system that belongs to Satan, which he obtained at the fall. This is his world and his world system (Luke 4:5-6, 1 John 5:19); and once again, no one can ever defeat him by staying under its authority.
This matter of coming out of the world economic system is of no little consequence. Once again, it is entirely legal. In order for us to not belong to Satan, in order to remove ourselves from his legal authority, there must first be a legal break from it. That break is to not be laboring to his world, not being legally indebted to it. Even as it is written that “the borrower is servant to the lender” (Proverb 22:7), so as long as you are gaining your sustenance from the labors and system of this world, his world, you belong to it; you are its servant, and the master, Satan, has legal rights over his servants. If you do not think this is true, go to the cemetery and ask any one there.
Remember, the earth was cursed for your sake (Genesis 3:17-19). By virtue of this, you owe it a debt; and, that debt is so great, that in the end since you have not paid it in full, it claims your body in payment. There is only one way to come out from that debt, and that is to come under a garments of skin covering that legally removes you (again, the legal city of refuge), and you are then not obligated to the payments. (The Moses first Remnant have the rights to their bodes reserved, attested in Jude 1:9. That which the angel attested by demanding Moses’ body, is, as you might now see, a critical legal point for the Moses first Remnant [once again the smaller representing the fulfillment of the larger].)
And remember also, that it is those who have the mark of the beast 7 who buy and sell (Revelation 13:16-17). By coming out of Christianity and the world system, and coming under the legal city of refuge Bride covering of holding all things in common, you are delivered from the requirement to buy and sell and are thereby removed from the mark of the beast.
Therefore, one might wonder how someone in the Bride will be able to handle the money and be responsible for all the finances of the Bride and their well being. Whoever they are, they are going to have to interface with the world; so, doesn’t that corrupt and even doom them? Quite so, unless they are one who has already, like the first Remnant, been legally sealed and set apart under the altar. And, since this man is legally one of the original twelve, I’m sealed with them, and I cannot lose that. I am legally sealed with the rest of my first Remnant brethren.
Also, I am under the covering of Yahshua’s office which He gave to Judas. Now filling that vacated office, I have the legal right to do commerce with the world, since I possess Yahshua’s purse. So I am covered too in order to do commerce with the world. But, the Bride is not covered to do this, and this is yet another vital reason she MUST come out of this world. As long as you yield your labors to the lender, Satan, who owns this world, you remain his servant, and he has legal authority over you to take your body to death, returning it to the cursed earth from where it came.
But most importantly, as pointed out in The Passing Over Principle, page 4, holding all things in common must be more than just another commune or St. Francis of Assisi work. There has to be something else to make this work set apart for a highly select purpose.
We have now seen two areas in which legal deliverance must take place through Yahweh’s garments of skin covering - from Christianity and from the world economic system. But in addition to proper covering, there must be another critical element that is present with this. As we have already begun to see per the importance of having one who occupies the sealed place of Judas, it is of utmost importance that not only do we place upon ourselves the garment of skin covering of holding all things in common, but we MUST EQUALLY have the vital one and twelve government. Proper government, as well as proper covering, are the two essential witnesses, the two parts that make clean, that are necessary to defeat Satan based on legal grounds.
And, many truths exist, not in two parts but in three, or even the third witness. The third part to this legal victory over Satan must be truth. James closes his writing with these words – “My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth, and one turns him back, let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death, and will cover a multitude of sins” (James 5:19-20). Looking at the application of this message in light of the error into which the church has been led by Satan for 2,000 years, and the Elijah need to be saved from death, once again we can see the vital part truth holds. Yahshua said, “If you abide in My word, then you are truly disciples of mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32). The securement of deliverance and the defeat of Satan, must come by the acquisition of truth – truth based on law, and then putting that truth into effectual actions.
This man has spent the last eight years seeking to see Yahshua’s face, His face of truth concerning the Remnant Bride. For the last four years I have placed those truths on the web for all to read. Through them, you too are seeing His face. Now, there are two things that remain to be accomplished – holding all things in common, and establishing the one and twelve government. It is vital that these be implemented by Passover of this year, 2003.
The first thing Elijah did in the test of Carmel was to restore the stones of the altar that had been torn down. We are specifically told that there were twelve stones, and on those stones was placed the evening offering, an oxen. It seems quite evident here that the latter rain twelve disciples must first be set up in order for the rest of the Remnant offering to be placed upon them. This is that which Yahshua did. He selected the twelve stones, the twelve apostles, at the outset of His work. This is now my expressed purpose – to select twelve men as the latter rain twelve apostles. If we are to defeat Satan, if we are to win the test of Carmel, and if this is the latter rain work that must prepare the way for Yahshua, then we must have the one and twelve government, even as was present in the first Remnant while Yahshua walked on the face of this earth.
Thus we see the three essential elements that legally allow the Bride to be set apart from Satan-occupied Christianity, set apart from the Satan-controlled earth, and ascend alive to defeat him:
When we gather for Passover this year in 2003, we will come together here in Washington state to (1) come under the covering of holding all things in common, and (2) come under the government of the one and twelve. More details will be provided as this event draws near. Passover begins on the evening of April 15. This is the Passover that will fulfill all Passovers, legally effecting that which Yahshua purchased as the Passover lamb – deliverance from death. The test of Carmel, which equally took place during Passover (evidenced by the parallel account per Gideon and the barley bread), will begin to have its final required resolution.
May you see Yahshua face to face.
Yahweh of hosts, hear my prayer;
Give ear, O God of Jacob!
Behold our shield, O God,
And look upon the face of Your anointed.
