This is a standalone message, but it really is preached after another message called, what is it called? "A Wondrous Edifice", and the reason I am giving this message a separate name and number is because in itself it is an important message that people might want to search for with key words on our web site, or even in our catalog, but this message does follow the introduction of the message called "A Wondrous Edifice". We are going to do a study in Genesis chapter 14, and I think I intend to do the whole chapter, which we will not be able to do today, and this chapter is in preparation for a study that we will do on Lot and his escape from Sodom, which also we be a sequel to "A Wondrous Edifice", but also we will give it a separate number and let it be a standalone message. I found some very interesting things as I have, it is very interesting information, as I have prepared for this message, and I just have so much, so many thoughts in my mind, that I have not yet researched and put down as notes in my book, but I will tell you this, that the Lord is showing me that account of Lot's escape from Sodom is analogous to Noah's escape from the world on the other side of the flood, and that leads to the count in the New Testament or the statement in the New Testament that the last days will be as it were in the days of Noah. The nation of Sodom because of an interpretation of the Scripture is known to be a nation of Sodomites, male homosexuals to such a degree that the word Sodomite is in the English dictionary referring to homosexuals, I hope to convince you today that this is a false understanding of who the Sodomites were, and to show you the men of Sodom and the kings of Sodom in any event, and as the kings go so the subjects go, that the king of Sodom and the king of Gomorrah and the other nations that they were confederate with, actually were kings and people who had been chastised by the Lord and come under the control of the imputed Christ mind, they were converted kings that were living under the benefit of having a right relationship with the Lord, and we are told, we are told in chapter 13 of Genesis, that when Abraham went to Lot, and talked about separating, we are told in verse 8 of chapter 13, "And Abram said unto Lot, let there be no strife I pray between me and thee, and between my herdsmen and thy herdsmen, for we be brethren, is not the whole land before thee? Separate thyself I pray from me, if you will take the left hand, then I will go to the right, or if you depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left." Verse 10, "And Lot lifted up his eyes and beheld all of the plane of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere."
Before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah it was a well-watered plane, water signifying the water of the spirit, it was a blessed land, even as to the garden of the Lord. Sodom and Gomorrah could be likened unto the Garden of Eden before they were destroyed, "like the land of Egypt, as that cometh unto Zohar. Then Lot chose him all the plane of Jordan and Lot journeyed east." East signifies the eternal plane, the land of Sodom and Gomorrah was a blessed land, and I want to suggest to you that in today's world, the church which is under the Holy Spirit can be likened to Sodom and Gomorrah, a well-watered land, a church drenched with the water of the Holy Spirit, a church that has received the blessings of the Holy Spirit for years, but they are still in their carnal minds under the influence of the Holy Spirit, many members of the church today have the imputed Christ mind formed in them, that means the fruit of the spirit has appeared in them, to a point that in many areas of their life they are manifesting the nature of Christ, okay, but they are still the female seed, and for that imputed Christ to endure in that person, for that imputed Christ mind to endure to not be seduced by the Serpent and get thrown back to their carnal minds, it is necessary for that imputed Christ mind to be rooted and grounded with the imparted Christ who must be grafted to them in accordance with the instruction of James, who says, "Receive ye with meekness the grafted word." You have to have the male seed and the female seed, and the product of that union inside of us, the male and female seed of the glorified Jesus Christ, and the product of the union, which is the imparted Christ mind, which has the ability to mature spiritually to the point that it will impart immortality to the flesh that it dwells in, the female seed no matter how powerful the fruit of the spirit is developed in that person can never preserve the flesh of that human being, it is only the imparted seed of the glorified Jesus Christ, after he is married to the female seed which is the Holy Spirit that can grant, that has the ability to impart immortality to the flesh that it dwells in. What did I just say? That Sodom and Gomorrah and their confederate nation can be likened to the church today, the church is in some measure of correction, there a lot of aspects of the church where the other people that have learned obedience, that have learned submission, and whose mind has been rectified, drug addicts that do not drug anymore, alcoholics that do not drink anymore, adulterers that do not cheat anymore, okay.
This is who Sodom and Gomorrah and their confederate nations are, the corrected kings, and we know that when we come to Christ, we become kings and priests. We are the corrected kings, the traditional church, the female church is Sodom and Gomorrah, and this concept that has been reigning for probably two thousand years, this interpretation of the Scripture, okay, because of the account of the men banging on Lot's door saying, We want to know these two men, the two angels that came to visit Lot, a conclusion has been drawn that the men of Sodom were homosexuals seeking to physically have relations with those two men who were angels that visited Lot, and this conclusion has been drawn with such strength that as I said earlier, the word Sodomite exists in the English dictionary, but I am here to tell you that this is not a correct interpretation of the Scripture.
I am giving you really a preview of what I preach on Lot because the messages are completely intertwined, the account of those men banging on Lot's door is analogous to the account of ten virgins, five that had oil and five that did not have oil. The five virgins that did not have oil that asked the five virgins that had oil for their oil, can be likened to the men that were banging on Lot's door. You see, the men of Sodom and Gomorrah and their confederate nations had an imputed mind of Christ, they had blessed life, they had, were imparted the ability to throw off the bondage of the carnal mind and lead a blessed life because of the power of the living God within them, but after they were delivered from the bondage of subjection to their carnal mind, after they were set free, they misused their freedom, and they joined with that carnal mind to do the same evil deeds that the carnal mind did, that the carnal does. Therefore judgment fell upon them, they were judged in the valley of Siddim and they lost their Christ mind. The two men that came to visit Lot represented Lot's opportunity to have the mind of Christ reformed in them, and the men banging on his door were, I have to really study this and work it out, but I believe it was two fold, the men banging on their door were the men of Sodom saying, We want our Christ mind back also, but they were not willing to repent, they were trying to force the angel to restore the Christ mind to them.
We want to know these men, we want to have a spiritual intercourse with these men which will regenerate the Christ mind in us, is that not interesting? We will get to that in the next message. Praise the Lord, the message today is to establish that the kings of Sodom were not homosexuals and that there is nothing in this account or the extended account that I have just outlined for you to suggest that these men were homosexuals other than a carnal interpretation of the Scripture which I do not believe is valid, okay. The reason this message is being preached today is because the Lord is putting out a warning to the church, He is telling the church, I have given you my Holy Spirit, many of you have the imputed Christ, but you must go on, you must flee this city, you see, you have the Christ mind formed in you but you are still living in the world, see. You may not be drinking anymore, you may not drugging or committing adultery anymore, but your heart is still in this world, your heart is not longing for the things of my Spirit, well this is my interjection, probably because they have not heard it preached, the message in the church is the rapture, they do not, you cannot long for the things of the Spirit until you hear about what God has to offer you, and the church has not heard the truth about the kingdom of God, the church has not heard the doctrine of Christ, the church has not heard about immortality in the flesh, the church has not heard about the genius, the righteous genius that we are to ascend into, that we are the policeman of the world, saving the world from the evil of the powers and principalities that afflict humanity every single second of every minute of every day, someone is getting raped, murdered, mugged, dying, hurt, damaged, violated in some way.
We are being raised up to deliver the world, to break the bondage on the world, they do not hear this message, so without a vision my people perish. The message of the Lord today is, you cannot stay in this condition of living in the world under the influence of the Holy Ghost, if you do not go on, if you do not embrace the doctrine of Christ, and do what is necessary to prepare yourself to receive the grafted word with humility, you will go backwards, the imputed Christ that is formed in you will unravel, and the basic elements that wove together within you to form that imputed Christ will be reformed into your carnal mind and you will start thinking like the world, and you will agree in your mind with the world. Brethren how many Christians voted for the wrong candidate four years ago, how many Christians are planning on voting for the wrong candidate today, why? Because they are making the decision out of their carnal mind and not out of their Christ mind, if they ever had the Christ mind, it has unraveled and the basic elements reformed into a mind that is in agreement with the world.
We have clergymen from many Christian denominations fighting politically, they are taking political positions that are completely anti-Scriptural. This is what this message is about, the warning is going out, as the Lord has explained to us many times in the past, it does not matter how many people hear this message, something happens in the spirit when we preach a message like this which is specifically ordained of God to be taught and to be preached, if you do not go forward, you are going backwards, if you do not go forward, you will go backwards, and you will lose everything that was formed in you that you were not born with, everything that was added to you, everything of the kingdom of God will be stripped from you and you will be returned to that which you entered into the world with, the basic elements of creation formed into a carnal mind. That is the message, that is the message.
Noah escaped from the world before the flood, and the Christ mind by which he escaped unraveled on the other side of the flood, Satan overtook him. Lot escaped from Sodom after Sodom fell, but the Christ mind that recognized the angels when they came into see him, that Christ mind unraveled and he returned to his carnal mind and brought forth Ammon and Moab, two violent nations that were enemies of the Jews as long as they existed. We do not really know who they are today or what their descendants are or where they are today. Today the Lord says, I have made provision that this should not happen to you, Noah, and Lot did not have an imparted Christ, so their Christ mind unraveled. The church today has the help that Jehovah promised to Adam, Christ in you the hope of your glorification, the mechanism is available to the church, to secure your Christ mind so that it will never unravel again, so that you may have a different testimony than all who have gone before you. Time is short, saith the Lord, you must ground yourself in Christ or you will go backwards.
Let us take a look at our text, Genesis chapter 14, today I have prepared for you through verses 10, actually through verse 8, but I expect to do one or two more verses during the meetings. I think I did verse 9, right I did verse 9, and I will finish up verse 10 between the services. I will read through verse 10.
"And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations. That these may war with Bera king of Sodom, and Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Adamah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela which is Zoar. All of these were joined together in the vale of Siddim which is the salt sea. Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer and in the thirteenth year they rebelled. And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim. And the Horites in their mount Seir, unto Elparan, which is by the wilderness. And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar. And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim; With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five. And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain."
That is all I have for today, but we are told that after that, well maybe I should do verse eleven too. “And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way." Starting with verse 1 of chapter 14.
"And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations."
I hope you all know that a name in the Scripture anyway describes the person, so if we want to know who we are dealing with, we have to look up the Hebrew word and the roots of the names to find out who these kings represent, what they represent and to find out the message that God is trying to tell us. What caught my eye with this verse, was the last phrase Tidal, king of nations. I said, Lord who is the world is the king of nations? Prior to that, we have names, specific names of kings which are the king of specific lands, what is this king of nations, and as I prayed about it, I got the answer, which I will share with you, I am telling you this because I am trying to point out to you that when you try to understand the Scripture, you really have to pick out things that do not seem to make sense and ask the Lord what they mean, because when you see something in the Scripture that on the surface appears to not make sense, you are dealing with a mystery. Usually there is a very interesting spiritual truth operating there. Let us take a look at some of these names.
Amraphel, he is the king of Shinar, a plane in Babylonia, so we know that Babylon is the Genesis of false religion, and therefore it is not a good king, Amraphel, he is a king of false religion. The second king is Arioch king of Ellasar, and again, Arioch, well Amraphel is Strong's #569, and Arioch is Strong's #746, it means a foreign origin, the name of two Babylonians. We see a second king here, another Babylonian king, a king of false religion. The third king is Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and he is a Persian king. You know, this is very interesting because the modern rendition of the descendants of the Babylonia are the Iraqis, you know Iraq is the modern day Babylon, and Iran is the modern day Persia, so we have so much with Iran and Iraq in the news today, it is just so interesting to see their antecedents in the Scripture. The third king, Amraphel, Arioch, and Chedorlaomer, the third king is Persian or Iranian and the fourth king, I am just looking at the, okay and this is interesting, the Chedorlaomer is the king of Elam, and Elam means, and that is Strong's #5867, and that means hidden or distant and Elam is the son of Shem and his descendants, and so this word could mean a son of Shem or it could mean the country that Shem's descendants occupied. I find that so interesting that a descendant of Shem is associated with two Babylonian kings and a Persian king.
Judah was captured by Babylon and Israel was overtaken by Media-Persia, and now we see a son of Shem associating with them, which to me is a witness to what this ministry has been preaching for years now, that Shem turned evil, that Ham was cursed by Noah, and that Shem and Japheth were in an unholy agreement with Noah at the time that Noah was overtaken by Satan and cursed Ham. We see the descendants of Shem in an ungodly company, and the fourth king is Tidal, that is Strong's #8413, which means fearfulness, it also means a Canaanite, and that word is from Strong's #1763, which can be translated formidable, which makes me think that this word fearfulness, it is really talking about a king that people were very afraid of. If he was a formidable king, people were very frightened of him. People had fearfulness of this king, and he was a Canaanite, so we see too Babylonian kings, false religion, one Persian king, one son of Shem, and one Canaanite king, what an interesting combination.
Alternate translation of Genesis 14:1, "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Babylon, Arioch king of Ellasar, a country in Asia, Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal who was ruled by Leviathan the formidable king of the nations." I have amplified in there, Tidal who was ruled by Leviathan, the formidable king over the nations, and this was the answer that the Lord gave me when I questioned him why there were three kings associated with or linked to specific countries, and one king that is the king of all of the nations, what does that mean? This is what the Lord told me, that Tidal was ruled by Leviathan, the formidable king of all of these nations, Leviathan was ruling over all of these nations. We have a motley crew here, these are not good guys. Verse 2 of Genesis 14;
"That these may war with Bera king of Sodom, and Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Adamah, and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela which is Zoar."
Did you ever wonder why Abraham was defending Sodom and Gomorrah when Sodom and Gomorrah was nations of Sodomites, homosexuals and evil people? Of course we are told that wicked people did live in Sodom and Gomorrah, but brethren let me tell you something, there are wicked people in the church. I heard someone, I have a testimony recently which is my testimony which I have never heard from another person before, which is the most wicked people I have ever met in my life I met in the church, I have never met such wicked people in my life before I came to the church, because being under the Spirit of God exposes who you really are. We might say, Well Abraham went out and fought with the kings of, and fought with these wicked kings to save Sodom and Gomorrah because Lot was taken captive you know, but I want to suggest to you that there is more to it than that, I want to suggest to you that the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and their subjects were in right standing with God. Abraham went out to fight for Lot, but he really went out to fight for the whole nation of men who were in right standing with God. I want to suggest to you that Abraham represents the male seed, the spiritual male in the church that went out to fight for the female church, and who is the female church? The church that has the imputed Christ, the church that has Christ formed without repentance, they had Christ formed in them, but they were wicked, but they had that Christ mind formed in them. Abraham, the spiritual male went out to fight for them when they were captured. We see that the female church, the female spirit filled church goes into captivity, and the female church today is in captivity, she has very little power, she does not have a fraction of the power that she should have.
That is not to say that there are not ministries within the church that are powerful, and that is not to say that the church is doing many good things and many good works in the earth, but she is not at the level of supernatural power that she should be. The Lord is sending forth the male, the spiritual male to set the female church free, and the way the spiritual male sets the female church free is by exposing her sins, that is the process. When repentance comes forth, Christ increases and spiritual power increases in direct proportion to righteous thinking. There is a difference between the imputed righteousness which says, because I have a relationship with God and I am reconciled to the Lord Jesus Christ, I am the righteousness of God, I hear this preached on many of the tv shows, I am the righteousness of God. I am the righteousness of God by faith, but spiritual ascension and spiritual power is directly proportionate okay to righteous thinking, not imputed righteousness, but the righteous thinking, righteous reasoning, and righteous choices that a person makes. Therefore deliverance from any form of bondage in your life has to do with finding out what is the wrong thinking that has put you in this position, that is keeping you in this position, and what is the analogous righteous thinking that is going to get you out of this condition, and then doing whatever you have to do to change that thinking so completely that the manifestation of that change is a change of a difficult situation in your life, that which is changed in your mind now changed in your projected life, this is the deliverance of God and this is how it works, and this is the process that results in a mature spiritual man rising in a spiritual power that equips you and is the official badge as law enforcement agent of the Lord over all of the powers and principalities that seek to and do in fact afflict his people and the whole world.
These four kings that we just named, may war against Bera king of Sodom, Bera, Strong's #1298, of uncertain derivative, a Sodomite king. It comes from #5467, an unused root meaning to scorch or to be burnt, a volcanic or bituminous, that is oil, oil lays district. Sodom is a place near sea. We see that the king of Sodom is a burnt man, he has been in the lake of fire and his carnal mind has been scorched, and he is in the place of oil which signifies the anointing. Brethren, the anointing is a two edged sword, either it sets you free or it brings judgment on you, one or the other. We see the king of Sodom which tradition tells us would be a homosexual, on the contrary is a converted believer, and Birsha the king of Gomorrah, Birsha is #1306 and that means wickedness, and Gomorrah, Strong's #6017 means a ruined heap. We see that Birsha the king of Gomorrah was wicked but he was wicked man that was ruined, that means the anointing got a hold of him and ruined his wickedness, and we see that the word Gomorrah was further from a root #6014, which means to chastise or to gather grain, so we see that Birsha the king of Gomorrah where the wicked man who was chastised, and now he was in a position to be grain that could be harvested, and Shinab king of Admah, Shinab, Strong's #8134, is from two roots, one meaning a father that has turned, and that is from #8132 which means to alter, so who is the father that was turned, who is the father that was altered? Does anybody know? Who was the father that turned, who? No, not Jesus, but you are close. Adam is the father, the first Adam the father of all of we who are his ascendants, okay, and he turned, he was righteous, Adam had an imputed righteousness who was destined to bring forth a many membered creation but he turned towards the Serpent and he was altered and became evil because mortal mankind is evil, good and evil but even the good of mortal man in relationship to the righteousness of God in you. He is the king of Admah, and Admah means the earth. We have an alternate translation here, Oh I left something out, I am sorry there is one more king, Shemeber, which means illustrious, and that is a good word, so he is the king of Zeboiim, which is #8034, which means, I am sorry I think this #8034 is the root of Shemeber, the king who is illustrious and his name comes from a root that means to be of renown, to be of a report, illustrious, so we see Shemeber was a great man, he was a king of Zeboiim which is Strong's #6636, which means gazelle. It is interesting, because I have read in Kabbalistic writings that Israel is the gazelle of God. I am going to go with that opinion of the Kabbalists that this man Shemeber is an illustrious man who was a gazelle or what does that mean the gazelle of God? That means an animal that God's spirit lived through, that is what it means, because human beings are all animals. This man Shemeber, he was illustrious, he had, and I told you that, that word meant renown, reportable, so it means a mark or a memorial, it means he had the mark of God, and therefore he was the gazelle or the animal that the Spirit of God lived through.
We see that these kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and their associates are good kings, even if they were wicked, they have been birthed and chastised and now their manifesting the life of God, how could you be manifesting the life of God and be homosexuals? It is not possible. I repeat again, church theologians have drawn a conclusion from a carnal understanding of the account of Genesis 19 that is incorrect. The kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and their confederates were kings and nations, kings representing nations of people that have repented and were under the protection of God, of Jehovah God. Praise the Lord, and lest but not least, we have, it says, and the king of Bela which is Zoar, so we do not know the king of Bela's first name, the king of Bela, the name of the place also of an Edomite, and it is from a devouring, and it is from #6819, I think I did this wrong, let us see, I said from Bela, and from, okay, where it says, Strong's #6819, I said from tsaar, that is wrong, that is a new word, #6819, this word from should not be there, okay, that is tsaar, a primitive root, to be small or to be ignoble. We see that Bela is the name of a king which means he was a devourer, he was an Edomite which is a descendant of Esau, which was a reprobate son of Isaac, and he was a devourer, but that devourer was made small, he was the king of Zoar which means to be made small and ignoble. This devourer, this person, and Esau let me remind you was a veracious consumer of other people's energy, that was the weakness of Esau, he was out seeking other people's energy. This man was an Edomite, he was a devourer, a veracious man, how do you take other people's energy? You take other people's energy by defeating them, you either defeat them in sports which is acceptable, you defeat them in business which is acceptable, or you defeat them spiritually by rejecting them and humiliating them which is not acceptable to God or by tricking them and conning them which is not acceptable to God, robbing and stealing from them. This man was a devourer but he had been made small, he had become ignoble because he was under the chastisement of the Lord.
We have four kings that are criminal kings, two Babylonian, one Persian, and one the offspring of Shem who had turned to the other side, and we have five kings associated with including Sodom and Gomorrah which are all converted kings that are under the protection of Jehovah God because they have repented and been purified and changed, nothing about homosexuals or sin at this time, and we will find out what the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah were, they were not homosexuality, the sin according to this account of Sodom and Gomorrah were that after they were set free, what does the Scripture say? After you are converted what are you supposed to do? You are supposed to, what are you supposed to do? Do you have an answer? You are supposed to strengthen your brother, the Scripture says, As you are converted strengthen your brother. These men after they were converted, after they threw off the yoke of the oppressor, actually made themselves equal to the oppressor and became confederates of the oppressor and when out to do the same thing as the oppressor.
What is this saying? Brethren, this happens in the church, I have seen it happen in the church, people who come in and they are in desperate condition, they get set free and they rise up and they become oppressor of the weak to try to take advantage of the weak? How? Either they exalt themselves to make themselves feel big, by, in many ways okay, they could have a false ministry, they could rise up to be in ministry not to help the people but to take money from them, okay, they could be in ministry to exalt themselves, they do not have to be in ministry, they could be someone in the church that is just saying, I am this great one and I learned all of this and now you are the little one and you better humble yourself before me, it is just human nature, it is all a manifestation.
How many people in the church are set free from the Lord by the Lord and have no compassion on the people that are still in the condition that they were set free from. How many people get set free and run from the other people that are still in the same trouble that they were in. Personally I think when that happens, it is because that person that has been set free is afraid of being drawn back in that problem, but you can have that concern and still have compassion on the people, but it is human nature, it happens so often that people that are delivered then despise the people that were in the condition that they have been delivered from. You know what I am talking about, that is the sin of the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and their confederates, nothing whatsoever about homosexuality.
It is so interesting because one of the aspects of the ministry here is that we expose false doctrine, this is one that I never expected in a million years, that the Sodomites were not homosexual, they were not homosexual, they were men, okay, now we are drawing a conclusion that the men of the Sodom and Gomorrah were as the king was, that the king signifies the spiritual and moral condition of the men, that they had an imputed Christ mind and when they were set free, instead of strengthening their brothers, they exploited the other people that were weak see, and they lost their Christ mind, okay, and when the two angels came to see Lot to give him the opportunity to be restored to his Christ mind, the men of those cities who were aware and brethren this is a true manifestation of hell, to have experienced the life in Christ and the victory of that resurrected life and to lose it, to be living a life on a lower scale knowing what you have lost, the men of Sodom saw that there was an opportunity present around Lot, to have the Christ mind restored and they were banging on the door saying, we want to know those men, we want to have spiritual sexual intercourse of the mind with those men so that Christ will be raised in us again, that is what is was all about, not physical intercourse brethren.
I want to tell you that in a measure I have experienced that level of hell, I was in a church for years where we had an outpouring for deliverance and healing, I was healed of many things including internal bleeding and many of the serious illnesses, that church was closed down by the Lord, when He pulled me out, I became very concerned about whether or not I would need a doctor to take care of me because I was not a well person. I made a fleece with the Lord that I would go to a doctor if necessary, and indeed I wound up in the hospital for three months and I had surgery, and I want to tell you brethren, that the mindset in the country and it is not true, I mean it is not wrong that if the only medical care that is available to you is the medical system in our world, well it is certainly better than dying, there is no question about it, but I want to tell you that once you have experienced being under the care of the Lord Jesus Christ, and receiving healing from simply having hands laid on you, to submit to the manipulation and invasion of your body and the humiliation of everything that you go through at the hands of the doctors, it is painful, it hurt me brethren, it hurt me to go. I had a vision of what human beings submit themselves to, the invasion of being poked in all parts of your body, the nudity, to be fully exposed and at the hands of other mortal men, to save your life, I realized how humiliating that was, because I had experienced something higher, healed of many major serious problems just by having hands laid on me.
If the medical society is the only help that is available to you when you are ill, you do not think of it in terms of being humiliated, you just submit, you lay down on the table, you open your legs, if you are woman, if you are man, you turn over, you stand up on your knees and you expose your rear end to another man who is going to penetrate you. You do not think anything about it because that is what you have to do to save your life so that you can support your family and go on with life.
I want to tell you something brethren, it is a tremendous humiliation. This medical system is Satan's medical system, and it does us good but you pay the price to whatever degree that these examinations affect you emotionally, and we just do not think about it because we say, well that is what we have to do to live, so we do not think about it, but it affects you emotionally, you know and that is the price that we pay for Satan's healing, you see.
Praise the Lord, it is the truth, and I would go to a doctor if the Lord sent me, I have not gone to a doctor in a while, but I would do it if He sent me, and I was in the hospital for three months, and I was exposed to everything that I am talking to you about, but I was exposed to it with a memory of what it was like to be healed by God, and that is hell brethren to be in a place where you know that there is something better because you have already experienced it but you no longer have access to it, that is the truth of how, see, this world is filled with people that are relatively happy because they do not know that they are in hell, but once you receive a memory through the preaching of the doctrine of Christ of what you have lost, and what human beings are supposed to be like an the power we are supposed to have and the freedom we are supposed to have in this world, once you get that revelation, it is difficult to be content with this world. If you have the best things of this world, it is difficult to be happy with it when you have a revelation of where you were and what you fell to, and what you have a potential to be again in Christ Jesus.
Praise the Lord. We see that the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah and their confederates were chastised people, chastised of the Lord, walking in imputed righteousness, but their mind was still carnal so when they were set free instead of strengthening their brethren, they exercised an ungodly authority over their brethren, they became criminal in their freedom and their freedom was taken from them, and they were now in an existence of carnality with a memory of what the quality of life was when they were under the protection of Jehovah, and it was so painful for them that when they saw the opportunity, the potential opportunity to have the Christ mind restored within them, they were almost ready to knock down the door to lay hold of the people or the two men who they thought could restore that condition to them.
Brethren there is a Scripture that says, In that day, people will be chaining themselves to you, they will be following you everywhere to get what you have, now that is not what is happening in the church today, on the contrary many people despise the church and look down upon it, and do not believe that it has any power and mocks it mercilessly, but in that day brethren that the church is restored to obvious power, there will be people chaining themselves to us, saying, What must I do to get what you have, and that is what the account of the two men visiting Lot was about.
You know if you stop to think about it, the King James translation says that Lot was trying to defend these men, the King James says that Lot was speaking to these men of Sodom saying, Do not do this, do not hurt these two men, and then these two men turned around and blinded, this is the King James translation, turned around and blinded all of the people that were trying to attack them. We see that according to the King James translation, they did not need Lot defending them, they did not need Lot offering his two virgin daughters to two men that had the power to blind all of the men that were trying to rape them according to the King James translation. Something is wrong with this picture. If you want to say that Lot did not know that these two men had the power to blind the people who were attacking them, why did the angels not say, Oh do not offer your daughter, do not offer your daughter, we can take care of ourselves, why is that not in the Scripture? Because that is not what was going on. Praise the Lord. That is the next message, but they are overlapping.
Alternate translation of Genesis 14:2, "That these may war with Bera the king of Sodom, who was burnt", let me take this out, I want to take that word continually out, I decided to take it out, "who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment and the wicked Birsha, the king of Gomorrah who was chastised, Shinab the father who turned to the other side and was altered, king of Admah, all of the earth, and that is really Adam who became king of all of the earth as it exists today, and the illustrious Shemeber, the king of Zeboiim, the spiritual gazelle who had the mark of God, and Bela the king of Zoar who was brought very low so that Satan within him could be swallowed up. Praise the Lord. I wonder where I got that swallowed up from. Verse 2. That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, one of these words must have something to do with swallowed up, gazelle, okay here it is, the word Bela, the name Bela is from Strong's #1105 which means to be swallowed up. Of course we are applying spiritual principles that we have learned over the years and we know that Satan is the one that is going to be swallowed up by Christ Jesus so I have added that in.
Alternate translation verses 1-2, "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Babylon, Arioch king of Ellasar, and Asia, Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal who was ruled by Leviathan the formidable king of the nations, that these made war with Bera the king of Sodom who was burnt continually in the purifying fires of judgment", and I wanted to take continually out, although that really is the suggestion, I do not know, I will have to decide whether I will leave it in or not. The significance of being burnt means that if Christ abides in you continually, your carnal mind is continually burnt, it means your carnal mind is continually under judgment and incapable of harming you, so I will have to decide whether I want to amplify that word continually or not, but for now I am taking it out. "That these made war with Bera the king of Sodom who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment and with the wicked Birsha, the king of Gomorrah who was chastised, Shinab the father who turned to the other side and was altered, king of Admah, all of the earth, and the illustrious Shemeber, the king of Zeboiim, the spiritual gazelle who had the mark of God and Bela the king of Zoar who was brought very low so that Satan within could be swallowed up. And all of these were joined together in the vale of Siddim which is in the salt sea."
I want to check something out, the word that I went to check was a word in verse 2 which says, That these made war with Bera the king of Sodom, and that Hebrew word translated "with" can either be translated "with" or "against", and when I saw that I had included the word "with" here, I was thinking that it really should have been "against", that these enemy kings may war against these kings that had been chastised and were now in submission to Jehovah, and I am still not sure but I am going to keep that in mind, it is possible that, there are two possibilities that the criminal kings representing the carnal mind made war against the Christ mind that came into existence when these men were chastised, or it could mean that even though these kings were chastised, they were still in league with their carnal mind making war, and who were they making war against, they would be making war against Christ. I am really not sure we are going to continue our study, and we are just going to do one more verse then I am going to stop and let you have dinner, and I will try and see if I can get an answer to this before you come back for the evening service.
Let us go on with Genesis 14:3, "And all of these were joined together in the vale of Siddim which is the salt sea." It sounds like they made war with, it sounds like these men who were chastised and serving Jehovah and under the protection of Jehovah, were joined together with the kings that made war, so that means, it would mean that the imputed Christ mind was joined together with the carnal mind, and that is not so way out, that happens. A lot of Christians with the Christ mind are still, even though the Christ mind is in existence, they are still living out of their carnal mind and in agreement with their carnal mind. This is the whole purpose of the judgment, this is very common that Christians have the Christ mind present, a lot in a lot of cases, I know we had that case in this ministry that the Christ mind equipped the person to understand what I preached here which is very difficult, but when it came to judging righteous judgment, that person refused to judge righteous judgment and continued to view moral and ethical issues with their carnal mind, so that could be what we are talking about here, that even though these people were chastised and now the Christ mind appeared in them, they were still living out of their carnal mind.
The Hebrew word translated "to join" is Strong's #2266 and it can also mean "to fascinate", that is a first level translation of the word. This is a primitive root, to join specifically by means of spells, to fascinate. We see that the Christ mind was fascinated by the carnal mind, the carnal mind was still exercising authority over people that had been chastised by God and had a measure of the Christ mind, we just had that right here this morning, that is what happened to you here this morning, you were fascinated, okay, the Serpent seduced you, amen.
They were joined together in the vale of Siddim, Siddim Strong's #7708 means flat, and it is from Strong's #7704 which means to spread out as a field, flat, country field, ground, land. I know from our previous studies that it is Leviathan who rolls out this flat world, it is Leviathan who has rolled out this visible world, and it is this visible world that is going to roll up like a scroll when the kingdom of heaven is rolled and takes over this visible plane.
I suggest to you that because we are dealing with the valley of Siddim, we are dealing with something that is low, okay, that we have to be talking about the world that Leviathan rolled out which is this present world, and the word "salt", "and they were together in the vale of Siddim which is the salt sea", the word "salt" is Strong's #4417, and it is from the Old Testament #4414 which properly means powder, specifically salt has easily pulverized and dissolved. It is also from Strong's #4414, which means to pulverize, intransitively to disappear as dust, it can also mean to vanish away, to be so ground to powder that you vanish away.
Alternate translation Genesis 14:3, "All these kings who made war were dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea by Satan's witchcraft, which exists and the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died. I am wondering, I may have amplified incorrectly here, all of these kings who were chastised were dissolved in Satan, I bet you it should be all of these kings who were chastised were dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea by Satan's witchcraft which exists in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died. I think that has to be, I think I got the kings backwards. You see, amplifying in the Scriptures is a challenge, I remind you there are many verses where we do not have personal nouns, just pronouns, and it is up to the translator to figure out who the Scripture is talking about, so sometimes they get it wrong on first time around, and I am preaching this after the first time around, so let us make a change here that is saying, and all of these kings who were chastised and made clean, all of these kings who had the mind of Christ, I am going to have to work on this, all of these kings who had the mind of Christ, the mind of Christ formed in them, were dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea.
Remember Jesus saying, If your salt is not salty, what are you going to salt anything with? Well I will let you in on a secret since I have not preached it yet, in the account of Lot escaping from Sodom when we are told his wife looks back and turns to salt, this is a question that I have had before the Lord for years, the significance of that is that, first of all, the wife of Lot, she is not named, so that means she is his spiritual wife, which is Cain, okay, which is in this case Satan, and when she looked back she turned to salt. What that means is that, that part of Lot which was looking back when she looked back, judgment fell on her, because looking back was going to hurt Lot, and that was Satan within Lot looking back, Satan within Lot longing for the carnal life, and fire fell on his wife, fell on the sea because the symbol of Satan is the sea, Satan was boiled, the water evaporated and the only thing that was left was salt, so it means that Satan lost her power to seduce Lot from going forward.
When Jesus said, If your salt has lost its saltiness, what are you going to be preserved with? It means when Satan, when the Lord comes and chastises you and separates you from the carnal mind, it means that Satan in you is boiled and she is separated into salt, and vapor, see. If the salt is dissolved in the sea that means Christ is dissolved, are you following me? You are not following me, I can tell you are not following me, let me tell you again. The symbol for Satan is the sea, the salt sea, the symbol for Christ is the crystal sea, Satan is the salt sea, so we are talking about the symbol of salt, what does salt mean? It means when Satan is boiled the liquid of the sea is vaporized and the only thing that you have left is salt. When we talk about salt, we are talking about Satan being disabled, we are talking about the destruction of Satan, she has no power when she is separated in to vapor and salt, she has lost her power, okay, and I told you that is what happened to Lot's wife which was not a human being, it was Satan in Lot, Satan in Lot that looked back and was lusting for the things of the carnal world, but Lot, either Lot or the angels executed judgment on her, Satan was evaporated and Lot's wife turned to salt, okay, she was Satan and she became Christ, the salt that preserves, can you hear that? Okay. In this account right here, we have salt which would mean Christ, and Jesus said that salt was the preservative and Christ is the preservative. We see that all of these kings that Christ was formed in were dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea. They were, I guess I have to change that, all of these kings who were chastised, kings who were chastised by Jehovah, Christ was not formed in them yet because they were dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea, are you following me? They were under judgment but Christ was not formed in them, this is the church, this is the spirit filled church. A large part of the spiritual filled church does not even have an imputed Christ formed in them. All of these kings who were chastised. Well, I have to change that, I really do, I have to change that, this is not talking about the spirit filled church, this is talking about the discipleship church that is under chastisement, this is talking about disciples who are having their sins exposed and Christ still is not formed in them, and why would Christ still not be formed in you when you are having your sins exposed? Because even though you are having your sins exposed, you are not confessing them and repenting. That is what this is talking about.
All of these kings who were chastised were dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea because of Satan's witchcraft which exists in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died. We know from previous studies that this whole world is a black hole that Adam fell into when he died, is everybody okay with that? Okay.
This is interesting in verse 3, we are not talking about the Pentecostal church or the spirit filled church, we are talking about the discipleship church whose sins are being exposed, who have been burnt, who have been corrected, okay, we are talking about, and all of these five kings that are associated with, including Sodom and Gomorrah and associated with them, each one must be talking about a different aspect of the church. The first king, the king of Sodom is someone who has burnt, someone that has really been under corrective judgment, and then I would have to go over the others, let me see if I can find that here, see as I preach it I get new revelation, I did not see this before. We have Bera the king of Sodom who was burnt, his sins were, his sins were exposed okay, then we had the wicked Birsha the king of Gomorrah, who was chastised, he was under judgment from God and we do not know whether that means the sowing and reaping judgment or well it must mean the sowing and reaping judgment, because the white throne judgment, I do not think it was available here, although it may have been available in an imputed form. We have someone who had his sins exposed, then we had someone who was chastised, then we have Shinab the father who turned to the other side, then we have the man who was, or the group of men who actually were converted, they turned to the other side, and then we have the illustrious Shemeber king of Zeboiim who was a spiritual gazelle, someone that God actually lived His life through, and then we have Bela the king of Zoar who was not only chastised but actually completely humbled like what you are going through now, for the specific purpose of Satan being swallowed up in him, so do not forget that okay.
I think I have to put that on the board, this is very exciting, let us get this on the board. I have got this alternate translation here, my original perception was correct, that I am just going to read you what I have here, "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel, king of Babylon, Arioch, king of Ellasar in Asia, Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal who was ruled by Leviathan the formidable king of the nations, that these kings made war, or these kings went to war against Bera, the king of Sodom who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment, and went to war against the wicked Birsha, the king of Gomorrah who was chastised by the sowing and reaping judgment, and Shinab the king of Admah of all of the earth, who was the father that turned to the other side and was altered, and they also made war against the illustrious Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, the spiritual gazelle who had the mark of God which is the mind of Christ, and Bela the king of Zoar who was brought very low so that Satan within him could be swallowed up. And all of these corrected kings after the other kings made war against them were dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea by Satan's witchcraft which exists in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died."
we have drawing #1 on the board, now according to the way it looks, in the King James translation, even in Interlinear Text it says that these four kings made war against these five kings, but when I really look at what each king's name means, I see that there is really only four kings that were under judgment and that the fifth king which really is third as they are stated, the fifth king simply says that these are the experiences of the descendants of the fallen Adam who turned to his other side, so one of the kings, the king of Admah is talking about the fallen Adam who turned to his other side and became the king of all of the earth, he turned and he literally became Leviathan, but there are four kinds of descendants, four experiences that we the descendants of the fallen Adam can have in this earth, and these four experiences that we can have, if we are a descendant of fallen Adam which all of humanity is, are as follows, we can be a Sodomite, which means, that our sins have been exposed by an anointed man of God and we are a burnt man because the lake of fire has burnt us, we have been immersed into the lake of fire, we have been exposed to the mind of Christ, and our sins have been revealed. We can be a Gomorrahite which means that we are wicked men who have been chastised by Satan the enforcer of the sowing and reaping judgment. And of course we can have all of these experiences, okay, as far as I know most of us and this is certainly my experience that I was chastised by Satan through the sowing and reaping judgment before I came into the white throne judgment which is the burning by the lake of fire.
Probably all of these experiences, actually I may even have to change that, it is not, well it is four experiences that the descendants of fallen Adam who turned to this earthen side have, but it is not that you have only one of those four experiences, these four experiences are sequential, this is what we go through as we become mature in Christ at which maturation returns us to our first estate of perfection that Adam was in before he died, of course we know that it will be in a higher state of perfection than Adam was in.
I see that the order is wrong here, I have it on the board and I am not going to erase it, the first experience that we have is that we are chastised by Satan the enforcer of the sowing and reaping judgment because most people do not know about the white throne judgment, so we are under the spiritual law that rules in this world, you reap what you sow. The second experience as we mature in Christ is that you are exposed to an anointed man of God, who exposes your sins and burns you, burns your fallen soul, you see, and of course the suggestion as to the purpose of the lake of fire and the burning of your fallen soul is revealed in the New Testament, let me just read that Scripture for you here, and II Peter 3:10, "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night..." That means you are not going to know it is coming, it is going to be a surprise, "...in the which the heavens...", and the heaven is a mind, so we are talking about the carnal mind, in which the carnal mind will pass away with a great noise..." that means there is going to be a lot of yelling and shouting and complaining, "...and the elements shall melt with fervent heat." What are our spiritual elements? Cain and Abel are our spiritual elements, Cain and Abel, Cain killed Abel so now Cain in his fallen condition has the preeminence over Abel and rules over Abel her husband, and Cain is married to Leviathan and under the dominion of Satan and the Serpent, so our basic foundational spiritual elements, Cain and Abel are malformed, they are formed into the carnal mind, that is why they have to be cast into the lake of fire, the false prophet which is Abel, and the beast which is Cain and the Devil which is the personality that is in agreement with Cain and Abel will all be cast into the lake of fire which is the mind of Christ to be burnt, so that this unholy union will separate so that Cain, so that Abel can be raised from the dead, and put Cain under, and of course Cain has to be broken away from Leviathan and Satan, that is the purpose of the melting, that is the purpose of the burning, to separate the malformed elements so that they can be reformed into the mind of Christ. That is the second stage of returning home, of returning back to our first estate, there is no way we are getting back to our first estate which is immortality without pain, the immortality in Christ, there is no way we are getting back without the judgment, the rejection and the destruction of our sin nature, there is no other way that we are going.
The first step is the sowing and reaping judgment which hopefully helps us to cry out to God and say, help us, because the sowing and reaping judgment is without mercy, the second element is the white throne judgment which is having your sins exposed by a man of Christ and of course it is backwards on the board, but I am not going to rewrite it, and then the third experience of the descendants of fallen Adam is that we receive the mark of God, after judgment you receive the mark of God which is the mind of Christ, and become a human expression of God, because when you think with the mind of Christ, you become a human expression of God and the fourth experience of the descendants of the fallen Adam are that we are burnt, and this I have definitely experienced, I do not see all that many people experiencing this yet, but the day is coming that we are going to see a lot of people having this experience where you are brought very low for the specific purpose of having Satan the unconscious part of your carnal mind swallowed up by your Christ mind which is the process that catapults you into immortality, it is the carnal mind that keeps us dying and being reborn, dying and being reborn, it is the carnal mind that is responsible for all of the cycles of birth and death in this world.
The day is coming and it is very close that more and more Christians will be brought very low so that their carnal mind can be swallowed up by Christ, and how are you brought very low? By hardship, your power has to be broken, we are told in Daniel 7 that the little horn makes war against the saints, the little horn is Christ, He is making war against the witchcraft power of the saints because all human beings are born with witchcraft power, it is the power of the carnal mind. We must discover our helplessness, we must discover our powerlessness, therefore whatever it takes, whether it be disease or financial loss or whatever it takes to help us really believe, not intellectually but really believe that apart from Jesus Christ we do not stand a chance, whatever it takes, that is what the Lord is going to do when our time is at hand. Praise the Lord, I have a Scripture for you to witness what I am suggesting to you with this translation, that these kings were corrected okay, were still swallowed up by the carnal mind, Jeremiah 6:29, "The bellows are burned, the led is consumed of the fire, the founder melteth in vain but the wicked are not plucked away." The judgment was a failure, the wicked were not plucked away. Galatians 4:9 explains it very well, "But now brethren, after that you have known God or rather are known of God, how can you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements?" How can you turn back to your carnal mind? What is the weak and beggarly elements? The elements are Cain and Abel, so the weak and beggarly elements are Cain having dominion over Abel, the strong element are Abel having dominion over Cain, Abel being joined to Christ.
He says, How can you turn back to your carnal mind? "...wherewith ye desire again to be in bondage?" How did that happen to you? How could it happen to you? Your sins were not judged, or they were judged and you did not take the judgment to heart, you did not believe it, a true or complete confession and repentance did not come forth in you and Satan lay hold of that weakness in you and robbed you of whatever you had of Christ, and brought you back to your carnal mind, and I tend to think that this message is primarily for someone who was put out of this ministry a year and a half ago, and I think this message is going forth in the spirit, Satan has robbed that believer of everything that Christ did for them, all of this doctrine and the maturity and wonderful wisdom that, that person received in this mature ministry is almost all gone from their memory, how did that happen to you? I am talking in the spirit to this person, how did that happen to you? How did that happen to you? The bellows burned, the led was consumed of the fire, but the founder melteth in vain. Your sins were judged, your sins were exposed and revealed to you and you fought the fire, you fought it like it was your enemy and you returned to the weak and beggarly elements, that is how it happened to you, that is what happened to you. Praise the Lord.
I just want to finish up verse 3 and we are going to break for dinner here, I guess I did that already, I already read the alternate translation of verse 3. Let me do it again, "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Babylon, Arioch king of Ellasar in Asia, Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal who was ruled by Leviathan the formidable king of the nations, that these kings went to war against Bera the king of Sodom, they went to war against the descendants of Adam who were under the white throne judgment, and they went to war with the wicked Birsha the king of Gomorrah who was chastised, they warred against the people that had benefitted somewhat from the sowing and reaping judgment, they went to war against Shinab the father who turned to the other side, that is Adam, and was altered. In general, they went to war against the descendants of Adam the father who turned to the other side and was altered, and they also went to war against the illustrious Shemeber, the king of Zeboiim, the believers who had benefitted from the judgment and become the spiritual gazelle, who had the mark of God, who had the mind of Christ and they also went to war against Bela, the king of Zoar, the people who had been brought very low so that Satan within them could be swallowed up." We see that these four kings, two of Babylon, one of Persia, and one a descendant of Shem, represent the armies of the Serpent, who are sent out, the armies of Satan and Leviathan who are sent out to retrieve all of the believers that have received any benefit from Christ in the earth at all, they are sent out to get them back into their carnal mind, and their major weapon is pride, resistance of the judgment is pride, refusal to receive the correction is pride.
All of these corrected kings, this is what happens to you when you refuse to take my correction seriously. This is what has happened or is going to happen to you, "and all of these corrected kings, or the mind of Christ or whatever measure of Christ these corrected kings had, was dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea by Satan's witchcraft which exists in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died." All of you people, this is not just for this fellowship, as I told you when I first started preaching this message, the way it works is that this is going out into the spirit, the Lord has a lot of people that this message is being ministered to by the spirit.
All of you Pharisees that think that you are so smart, that you just listen to me or whoever your authority is, just listen to us and yes us to death and let us think that you receive the correction but go home with a prideful thought in your mind, Oh my pastor was just having a bad day, I am going to forgive her for talking to me like that, all of you that think you are so smart, the Lord is telling you and I have a feeling that this is a last warning or certainly a late hour warning, the end of you will be that Satan will overtake whatever you have acquired in Christ, and dissolved you right back into your carnal mind and you will lose all of your household and your goods and all of the blessings and riches that you have acquired in Christ, and we know someone right now that this is happening to, and we pray that this message is designed to wake them up before it is really too late in the name of Jesus, I pray that prayer.
I hope you have a good dinner and Lord willing we will do verses 5-9 when we get back and I do not think I made this a part one, I will have to make this a part one, okay enjoy your dinner, God bless you.
Praise the Lord, we are back from dinner and we are up to verse 4, I will read you the alternate translation of verses 1-3 to begin with, I am on page five of our notes for those who are following with their notes. "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Babylon, Arioch king of Ellasar in Asia, Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem and Tidal the expression of Leviathan the formidable king of the nations, that these kings made war with Bera the king of Sodom, who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment, and with the wicked Birsha king of Gomorrah who was chastised, Shinab the king of Admah, the father who turned to his other earthen side, and was altered, and illustrious Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, the spiritual gazelle who had the mark of God and Bela the king of Zoar who was brought very low so that Satan within him could be swallowed up. And all of these kings who made war were dissolved is Satan's spiritual sea by Satan's witchcraft which exists in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died."
Just in case that I did not mention it, the black hole that Adam fell into when he died is this world, it is this world.
4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer and in the thirteenth year they rebelled. KJV
That is talking about the corrected kings. According to Jewish law and tradition a young male becomes a man at the age of thirteen, but also according to our studies in the Gate of Reincarnations, at the age of thirteen, one receives their Ruach, one receives their spirituality. We see that becoming a man is associated with receiving one's spirituality or becoming spiritual. Alternate translation of verse 4, Genesis 14, "And these corrected who were in right standing with God served Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and in the thirteenth year when they became a spiritual man, they rebelled." We see that the corrected kings in the year that they received spiritual strength, rebelled against the kings that represent their carnal mind and their flesh. You know we have a flesh also, we have lusts of the flesh, lust for sex, lust for food, lust for power I think comes out of the mind, but the body definitely has its own lusts, so these kings represent different aspects of the lusts of the mind and lusts of the flesh. I am not going to read the whole alternate translation every time, I just repeated it in your notes because it is just good for a quick reference.
Genesis 14:5, King James translation, "And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaomer, and the kings that were with him, and smote the Rephaims in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim."
Forgive my pronunciation. Some of you may have heard of the Rephaims, this is one of the words that is translated "giant" and we see that it comes from Rapha, Strong's #7497, which means in the sense of invigorating, in the sense of empowering, and it means giant. This word is derived from the Hebrew word #7495, which means to mend by stitching, to cure. That is interesting because in Isaiah 53 where we read about Jesus, and I should have looked up the Scripture for you, I do not have the exact Scripture for you, it talks about Jesus healing us or being healed by Messiah in Isaiah 53, that is the meaning of the word, to sew together, and I do not know whether it is the same Hebrew word or not, as I said, I apologize for not looking it up, but the spiritual concept of being healed as expressed in Isaiah 53, is expressed as the concept of being stitched up, of being stitched back together with God, because we became ill and we died when we were separated from God, so the solution to every problem that we have in this world is to be sown back or stitched back together to God through Jesus Christ the mediator, that is the answer to every problem that we have. Praise the Lord.
We see that these Rephaim are people who are cured, giants who are cured, what are they cured from? If you recall, Scriptures in the book of Revelations, they are cured from the deadly wound that was given to the head of the dragon, we are supposed to be dead but we are not dead, this whole fallen Adam, we are supposed to be dead. We are dead if we are not reconnected to God we are dead, but look at what we have done in this society, okay, the spiritual death resulted in an agrarian culture where, going all the way back cave men had to hunt for their food and grow food had to work every day to gather their food, there was no refrigeration, life, all life completely circulated around finding food and shelter, that is all that people were able to do, seek food and shelter, no stimulation of mind or spirit whatsoever, they had to survive, and that was, so that is the curse, that is the condition of someone separated from God, but with the carnal mind and being sown together with a pagan deity, okay, intelligence did come forth, fire was discovered and we have all kinds of benefits, the greatest most obvious one is the medical society which is not of God, it is Satan's healing, just look at their emblem, it is the staff with the Serpent wrapped around it, that is not God's healing, it is the healing of the Serpent, you know.
The one who is healed, the one who received the deadly wound and was healed is the first Adam who died, and he is healed by sowing himself together with an entity that is not God, that at least has the power to give some comfort in this world apart from the comfort of God, so that is who the Rephaim are, they are men who have received spiritual power through union with a pagan goddess, just as we are joined in spirit to Christ, they are joined in spirit to a pagan goddess, in this case Ashteroth. Praise the Lord, Ashteroth Karnaim, and that means the double horned, it is a symbol of this deity, Ashteroth is the double horns, I did not know that, and also the Zuzims and Ham, and the Zuzim is Strong's #2104, and it is talking about an aboriginal tribe of Palestine. The word aboriginal usually means the first tribe that was ever there could go back to before the flood, you know we have the aborigines in Australia, you know, this is very ancient people.
Ham just talks about a region in Palestine, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim. The Emims means terror, it is Strong's #368, and it means terrors, and early Canaanitish or Moabitish tribe that were terrors, and their city or their land is called Shaveh Kiriathaim, and it comes from Strong's #7704, it is the plural of plain of a double city, it is a place east of Jordan. This is a really interesting translation that the Lord gave me here, "And in the fourteenth year after the corrected kings fell upon Chedorlaomer, they smote the Rephaim. We see that the corrected kings have risen up in spiritual power, the first thing that they smote was their own carnal minds and we see that in, let me find that Scripture. I had jumped ahead of myself, I think it is verse 6, it is verse 6 that we will read before verse 5 just for your information, it says, "And they rose up', this is the corrected kings, "they rose up in spiritual power in their thirteenth year and they smote the one who originally dwelt in the cave of the second energy center, but now dwells in the high place of the carnal mind, even Satan the strong support of the heathen kings who manifest their power through their speech. We see that when they, that was verse 6 if you were looking for it, the alternate translation of verse 6. We see that the corrected kings when they reach their thirteenth year, they rose up in spiritual power and the first thing that they did was fight Satan within themselves, and then after they smote Satan within themselves, we read in the alternate translation verse 5, "and in the fourteenth year after the corrected kings fell upon Chedorlaomer, they smote the Rephaims." After they smote Satan within themselves, then they went after the giants, then they were going out and smiting all of their ememies, they smote the Rephaims that were near to them, even the giants that were cured when they were sewn together with Ashteroth and the Zuzims, one of the original tribes of Ham, a region of Palestine, and the Emmims the Canaanitish tribe that tried to acquire the double portion by building a city that would reach into heaven.
We found out who the people were that were building the tower of Babel, they were called the Emmims, the Canaanitish tribe, is that not interesting? They found out who they were, very interesting. We see that the corrected kings are getting aggressive, they received spiritual power, they smote Satan in themselves, they overcame Satan within themselves, they went out and they attacked the Rephaim and I am not sure who the Rephaim were, probably some entities within themselves, you know, and then they went out, probably the Rephaim were Leviathan, they probably, as soon as they received this spiritual power, first they smote Satan, then they overcame Leviathan, I am just guessing now that, that is who the Rephaim were, and then they went out and they smote the kings that were keeping them captive, there is no way you can ever defeat your enemies that are outside of you until you first defeat the enemies within. You have to defeat Satan and Leviathan within yourself before you can hope to defeat people who are your enemies, that is just a truth, I am sure that you have heard that before, praise the Lord. Let us go on to Genesis 14:6, King James, "And the Horites in their mount Seir unto Elparan, which is the wilderness."
We see that the corrected kings also smote the Horites, again that is an aboriginal Edomean, which means, this is one of the original, Edomea has to do with Esau, and then the nation of these Edomeans is Elparan, and there is nothing interesting in that, I think I mentioned this earlier today, what is significant about Esau is that he was a thief, I know that the tradition says that Jacob was the thief, but Esau was the one who was spiritually criminal out there stealing people's energy, and Jacob, you have to get the spiritual translation of some of those verses because Jacob was doing what he was told to do you know by spiritual authority, praise the Lord, Jacob was the chosen one, the reason that Jacob stole the birthright to whatever degree he stole it because Esau first gave it up to him, the reason he deceived his father was that Isaac who had the authority was deceived by Esau, deceived by Esau or overtaken by Esau's spiritual power, or Esau's mind control, and the Lord, it was not the will of the Lord that the blessing would be transferred from Isaac to Esau, it was not the will of God. It was not Jacob's natural mother who spoke to him, it was Binah the spiritual mother who spoke to him, I may have the wrong Sefirah there, it has been a long time since I studied that, but it was a spiritual entity that had spoken to Jacob and said, Go in there and do what you have to do, now I do not understand it completely, you know, I am not going to get into that message right now and maybe I even had insight when I preached it that I do not recall at the moment, you might say, Why would it be necessary for Jacob to deceive his father, would there not be another way that would not be deceitful to accomplish God's purpose? I want to tell you brethren, I cannot give you details but there have been things that the Lord has told me to do over the years that if someone came to me and told me that the Lord told them to do it, I would have great doubt, but if the Lord tells you to do it, you do it, you just have to make sure that it is God, and I cannot explain it to you better than that, I just cannot. Praise the Lord. I just know everything that God does is righteous. We are looking at some of the words in verse 6, and we have the word wilderness here. The Hebrew word translated wilderness is Strong's #4057, and that can also be translated "speech" including the organs of speech which is the mouth and the tongue.
Alternate translation verses 14:6, "And smote the one who originally dwelt in the cave of the second energy center, but now dwells in the high place of the carnal mind, even Satan the strong support of the heathen kings who manifest her power through their speech, Satan's power is manifested through speech. Now, brethren, let me remind you, that speech is not, there are forms of speech other than verbal speech, verbal speech is the most obvious form of speech. Speech is communication, there is mind to mind speech, there is telepathy, there is body language, there is all kinds of, multiple kinds of speech, and when you are dealing with spiritual principles, verbal speech is usually the last thing that is thought of, usually it is spiritual speech, mind to mind communication, or spirit to spirit communication, witchcraft is spirit to spirit and sometimes spirit to mind communication.
Let us do all six verses here at this point, "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel, king of Babylon, Arioch king of Ellasar in Asia, Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal the expression of Leviathan the formidable king of the nations, that these kings made war with the Bera, king of Sodom who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment, that is the merciful judgment of God, that is what we call in the New Testament the white throne judgment where your sins are revealed, and with the wicked Birsha king of Gomorrah who was chastised by Jehovah's righteous sowing and reaping judgment, Shinab the king of Admah the father who turned to his other earthen side and was altered and the illustrious Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, the spiritual gazelle who had the mark of God, and Bela the king of Zoar who was brought very low so that Satan within him could be swallowed up. And all of these corrected kings were dissolved is Satan's spiritual sea, by Satan's witchcraft which exists in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died." Even though all of these kings had their sins exposed and were corrected, they were still, their spirit and their soul was dissolved, they were still under Satan's influence, that is what it means. "And these corrected kings who were in right standing with God", well I do not know if that is right, "And these corrected kings", I am going to take that out, because I do not know that they were in right standing with God because they may, we will find out as we go on, that some of them were in right standing with God, the ones who received the correction were in right standing with God, but then there were some kings who were corrected and did not benefit from the correction because the wicked was not plucked out.
Let us take this out, and these corrected kings served Chedorlaomer, king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, but in the thirteenth year when they became a spiritual man, they rebelled and when they rebelled, the smote, and this is how they rebelled, they smote the one who originally dwelt in the cave of the second energy center, but now dwells in the high place of the carnal mind, even Satan the strong support of the heathen Kings who manifest their power through their speech. "And in the fourteenth year after the corrected kings fell upon Chedorlaomer, they smote the Rephiams that were near to them, it is probably Leviathan, even the giants that were cured when they were sewn together with Ashteroth, and the Zuzims one of the original tribes of Ham, a region of Palestine, and the Emmims, the Canaanitish tribe that tried to acquire the double portion by building a city that would reach into heaven." They tried to get back to God with witchcraft.
Verse 7, Genesis 14, King James, "And they returned, and came to Enmishpat, which is Kadesh, and smote all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites, that dwelt in Hazezontamar." Enmishpat, Strong's #5880, means fountain of judgment. We see that judgment is coming forth, first spiritual power is imparted, then a warfare and then judgment comes forth, and this word fountain of judgment, it comes from #4941 which can be translated a verdict or divine law, and that comes from a further word, #8199, to judge or to pronounce sentence, and we know that this is the ministry of the sons of God, this is the ministry of the spiritual male to pronounce judgment. The word Kadesh is #6946, it means a place in the desert. Let us see what we have got here.
Alternate translation, Genesis 14:7, "And righteous judgment came forth from the corrected kings when they returned from the desert." Where is the desert? The desert is the same thing as the wilderness, when they were attached to the carnal mind, they were in the desert, they were in the wilderness. "When they returned from that place, that spiritual place called wilderness, after they were delivered from being dissolved in Satan's sea, these corrected kings that dwelled under the palm tree", I did not give you that word palm tree, where did I get palm tree, it has to be in one of these words here, it is the word Kadesh. We are told in the King James, "And they came to Enmishpat which is Kadesh", and the word Kadesh is Strong's #8946, it means a place in the desert, but it comes from Strong's #6947 which comes from #2688 which means palm tree, a place in Palestine, so that is where I got palm tree from.
Alternate translation, "And righteous judgment came forth from the corrected kings when they returned from the desert and these corrected kings that dwelled under the palm tree smote the whole country of the Amalekites and also the Amorites." Now you may recall that not too long ago, we did a study concerning the Scriptures where Jesus said to, I think it was Nathaniel, I saw you under the tree, okay, and that tree turned out to be a palm tree. We discovered that although it does not say it was a palm tree in the King James, we discovered that it was a palm tree, and that the significance of being under the palm tree is that you are part of the root of the tree and that when Christ is in you, Christ is the grafted, we have the grafted Christ, and you have the root of the tree, you will recognize every other person that has the grafted root. That is the significance of being under the tree, you are part of the root, and the witness, the Scriptural witness that I gave you is Judges 4:4-5, "And Deborah the prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time. And she dwelt under the palm tree of Deborah between Ramah and Bethel in mount Ephraim: and the children of Israel came up to her for judgment." Here we see all the way back in end time in history, a woman having the, I do not know how it could have been the imparted anointing, I do not understand that, somehow a temporary imparted anointing, I do not want to get into it on this message right now, I certainly do not understand everything, but she was under the palm tree, she was not the branch of the tree, she was the root of the tree, somehow she was the root of the tree, and the children of Israel came to her for judgment, they came to her for righteous judgment, they came to her for truth and solutions to their problems, which always involved the exposure of sin. We see that it has nothing to do with your physical gender, it has to do with the manifestation of Christ in you, if you have a male manifestation of Christ it has nothing to do with your physical body, and it is the anointing that should be honored, not the physical human being. Praise God.
Genesis 14:8, King James, "And there went out the king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar;) and they joined battle with them in the vale of Siddim;" We see that the corrected kings, they received correction, they received spiritual power, they threw off Satan, they threw off Leviathan, they threw off their other enemies and then when they are free, what do they, and they throw off the yoke of, I cannot pronounce his name, Chedorlaomer, they threw off his yoke, and as soon as they are strong enough, what do they do? They become the confederate of Chedorlaomer, they become his confederate, they used to be his slave, now they are not a slave anymore, now they are big strong soldiers, and they become his confederate, to do what? To do evil in the world.
We see that the people of God who have attained to spiritual power, some of people of God who attained to spiritual power misuse that spiritual power, that is what this is all about, if they misuse their spiritual power, they might use it to dominate people, they might use it to get wealth, they misuse it. The spiritual power is given to help God's people, spiritual power is given to set other people free, spiritual power is given to glorify God in this world, to do the works of God in this world. Jesus of Nazareth went about doing good, He did the good works of God in this world, He raised the dead, He healed the sick, He fed the hungry, and He disseminated the seed of Christ which would ultimately set humanity free, that is the reason you receive power, not to join yourself with some heathen kings who are out there robbing and stealing and looting. Praise the Lord.
That is the Scripture, I am not attacking anybody. That is the message the Lord gave us today. "Went out", Strong's #3318, that word can be translated to escape, to get away, to pluck out, proceed to pull out, to shoot forth, or to spread or spring out.
Alternate translation, Genesis 14:8, "But after Bera the king of Sodom who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment, and the wicked Birsha king of Gomorrah who was chastised by the sowing and reaping judgment, and Shinab the king of Admah, the father who turned to his other earthen side and was altered, and the illustrious Shemeber the king of Zeboiim, the spiritual gazelle who had the mark of God, and Bela the king who was brought very low so that Satan within him could be swallowed up", all of these kings escaped, and after they escaped, who do they escape from? "They escape from Satan, and the Rephaim which is Leviathan and the yoke of the physical oppressor, Chedorlaomer. After they escaped, they joined in the battle with the enemy kings in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that the first Adam fell into when he died."
A lot of people, I have seen this happen, people come to the Lord with severe problems, I have someone in mind right now, the whole family was in crisis, they came to the deliverance church that I was attached to, and they all got delivered, and then they went out and they went into a worldly life, let me say that again, I do not know that I made that clear, there were spiritual problems in the family that were preventing them from having a normal quote unquote normal life in this world, so they came to the Lord, and they got their spiritual problems fixed, but then instead of going on with God, they went back into the world and had a quote unquote normal life in this world, and did not press for God any further, is that bad? Well I do not know, maybe some people are not destined to go any further, I do not know, but if you are destined to go further and you do not, then it is sin. Praise the Lord.
After the corrected kings escaped, instead of strengthening their brethren, then they joined with the big shots of the world and became like them. Verse 9, Genesis 14, King James, "With Chedorlaomer the king of Elam, and with Tidal king of nations, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings with five." This verse 9, it is the continuation of verse 8, we are being told that after the corrected king escaped, they joined in the battle with the enemy kings, and these are the enemy kings that they joined in battle with, Chedorlaomer, king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal, the expression of Leviathan the formidable king of the nations, and Arioch, king of Ellasar in Asia, these four enemy kings joined with the five corrected kings, the king of Sodom, the king of Gomorrah, and the other three kings whose names I do not know off hand. I guess I chose not to amplify and put those names in here for some reason, because I am repeating these names so much I guess I just thought it was enough.
Verse 10, King James, "And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits; and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah fled, and fell there; and they that remained fled to the mountain." When I first picked out this study, I thought that there was a correlation between this word slimepits and the slime that we read about in the Zohar in the previous message to this, A Wondrous Edifice, but I see that there is no, well I do not think that there is a correlation at this time unless the Lord shows me otherwise, I am going to have to pray about this, I do not think there is any correlation that I can see at this time, but maybe there is, I do not know, but right now I am going to say that there is not, because I cannot, there is nothing that I can explain to you at the moment, there is no way that I can correlate this word "slimepits" as it appears in the Hebrew to what we discovered in the Zohar, but I will pray about it before we get back to it, the next time we get back to it, if there is a part two of A Wondrous Edifice, I do not know if I am going to get back to that series or not, I may just make all of the subsequent messages different names.
"And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits", this is very interesting and very typical for the King James, that the translations really do not make any sense, that the translator's license taken is intense. We see the word translated, let me say this first, and the lime was full of slimepits, in the Interlinear Text, we have Strong's #875 which translates, a pit, not a slimepit, a pit, and that word repeats twice, it says, a pit a pit, and the King James translators take those two words, the #875 repeated twice, a pit a pit, and translate it, full slimepits. The word slime comes in from the next English word, it says "full of slimepits and", the Hebrew word translated "and" is Strong's #2564, which comes from #2560 and it means bitumen as rising to the surface, and then another possibility is slime, slimepit, but it really means the rising to the surface of bitumen, which is talking about oil, it is talking about oil wells, is what it is talking about.
I am suggesting to you after praying about this verse, that the Hebrew word that should be translated slimepits, this is the Hebrew word that should be translated slimepits, Strong's #2564 translated "and", but we have translated it the oil of the anointing, the oil of the anointing bubbled up and rose up to the surface.
Alternate translation, I have a few words here, let me just go over this with you first, the English word "fell", we are translating that "cast down", another legitimate translation of the Hebrew word, and that same Hebrew word translated "fell" that we are translating "cast down" has a second meaning called "divided", so we are going to translate that word twice, and let us see what else we did here, that is basically it, oh the word "fled" the Hebrew word translated "fled" we are translating it "escape", "sought to escape" in one place, and I think we translated it "escape" in the second place. Then the word "remained", "and they that remained fled to the mountain", I do not know why I do not have the King James number for that, but let me tell you that the Hebrew word translated "remained" means to overflow, it means redundancy, it means repetition, overflowing, and that is how we will translate that word, the Hebrew translated "remained". This is what we have:
Alternate translation, Genesis 14:10, "And there were many black holes within the black hole." That is a translation of pit, pit, remember I just explained that, Strong's #875 appears twice, pit black hole, pit black hole, pit black hole, and the Lord told me that, that means there were many black holes within the black hole, this whole world, this whole universe is in a black hole, and each human being is a black hole, so there were many black holes, there were many black human beings within the black hole that this universe is in.
Our universe is the world the Leviathan rolled out in this world. There is something that is very interesting here that I do not have the answer for you, I am just going to put it on the message, it just caught my eye that Leviathan rolled out a flat world, you know this is really not a flat world, it is a three dimensional world, and when I did my studies in quantum mechanics, as by way of example and by way of teaching, the physicist writing the book talks about a world called flat land, but it is a two dimensional world, and he compares the two dimensional world to the four dimensional world that we live in and to the ten dimensions of String theory, and the eleven dimensions of "M' theory, and I just did not have the time between services to check out my physics books and see why the Scripture would call our world flat land when it is a three dimensional world, do you understand the question, do you understand what I am saying? The translation that has come forth here is that this world that Leviathan has rolled out is called a flat world, based on the meanings of the words that we have been looking at, and it came to my memory from when I studied quantum mechanics, basically String theory, and M-theory, that the physicist, in order to help us understand, String theory and M-theory talk about something called flat land, and that is a two dimensional world, and they talked about what life would be like if were living in a two dimensional world, called flat land, okay, but our world, actually it is a four dimensional world, if I said three dimensional world, that was incorrect, we have height, width, depth and space time, it is a four dimensional world, so I am looking at the Scripture calling our world flat land, and I am wondering if there is any connection to the flat land of the physicists which are talking about a two dimensional world, so what I have to do is go back into my physics books and see if there is any connection, it is not unusual and not uncommon to see a connection between spiritual principles and principles that the Lord has led me to in my studies of physics, but this is a mystery, the flat lands of physics is two dimensions and the flat land of the Scripture is four dimensions, something is wrong with this picture, you know, and our world is not flat right?
Aside from the space time we are sitting in a three dimensional setting right now, so why would the Scripture be calling the world a flat land? You know, and Lord willing, I am going to get into my physics books and see if I can find the answer, if I can find the answer, then Lord willing we will discuss it on part two of this message, praise the Lord. Here is our alternate translation of verse 10, "And there were many black holes, many human beings, within the black hole that the first Adam fell into when he died, that is this world, the place where Leviathan rolled out the flat land of this world. The anointing of God rose to the surface in some of the kings, this is some of the kings that had their sins judged, and the anointing, now remember the corrected kings have gone bad, they are misusing their freedom. Would you say that there are people in this country today misusing their freedom? I think there are people in this country today misusing the glorious freedoms that we were given by God through this country. The corrected kings were misusing their freedom, therefore amongst the corrected kings, there arose up some kings that had the anointing, so the anointing of God rose up in some kings to do what? What does God do when His people are misusing their freedom or misusing their power, what happens? What does God do, what is the solution to every problem?
COMMENT: He sends judgment?
PASTOR VITALE: He sends judgment, absolutely, so the anointing rose to the surface, to do what? To bring judgment on the kings that were misusing their power and abusing their office because when you have power with God, you have a spiritual office and all of the responsibilities that are associated with that office. The anointing rose to the surface in some of the kings, and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah sought to escape from their righteous judgment. What is another way of saying this? And the kings of Sodom, the kings that had been burnt in the fire, the kings who had received what we call the white throne judgment, the correction that comes from an anointed man of God, who not only has the authority to look into your heart and see your sins, but has the authority and power to help you overcome them, if you will just submit to him, those kings of Sodom, they fled when they saw the judgment coming, they did not want it, okay.
They had already experienced the judgment, they were burnt. This is really interesting, I do not know, there are two possibilities here, and I think it is possible that these kings could have had their sins judged and they could have been delivered and escaped, just like the Scripture says, and then now that they are powerful, they do not want the judgment anymore. I have met people like that, people that are desperate, cannot get off of drugs, cannot get off of alcohol, desperate, they will confess to anything, just that we should help them, and then when they get strong and become socially acceptable citizens, they do not want the judgment anymore. Either that, or they did not want the judgment from their fellow kings, we are not told who executed the judgments on these kings, we are not told where the judgment came from, we are not told that they got it directly from God, we do not know where it came from, but now we are being told that the judgment is coming from their fellow kings, and they are running from the judgment, they are seeking to escape from the judgment, unless the Lord speaks to me as I preach, I do not know whether they were running because they would not, because their pride was so high that they would not take it from their fellow kings, or they were running because they simply thought that they were beyond correction at this point, they had escaped and were powerful and were not willing to believe that they needed correction, that would be the Pharisee you see, not willing to believe that they needed correction, so they sought to escape from it because they did not believe that it was rightfully being directed towards them. The Lord is not speaking to me so it could be any of these things.
At one point in my preaching, I thought that perhaps that some of these kings had received the white throne judgment, had, had their sins exposed but that judgment had not done them any good because they never repented, never confessed their sins or repented, but I do not know that, that fits anymore, because we are told that these kings escaped, so the judgment must have worked for them initially because they escaped from their captives, so they must have gotten some kind of deliverance, unless it was the deliverance that was without repentance. I do not know, I do not think so, I am really, my guess would be, and the Lord is not telling me anything, is that these kings received deliverance and they got well and they became strong and they became Pharisees, and they were not willing to see that they were misusing and abusing the power that God had given to them as a part of the their deliverance, I am going to have to go with that for now.
The Kings of Sodom and Gomorrah sought to escape from the righteous judgment of their fellow kings, and the result is that they were cast down in that place where? In the Valley of Siddim, in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out, they were cast down into the lower world, and they divided, which is another translation of "fell", they were divided from Jehovah, "but the kings that the anointing overflowed from, the kings that were executing the judgment, they escaped from the enemy kings of their carnal mind, by ascending into the mountain of God." The mountain of God is one of the higher energy centers, I remember reading it sometime, according to the Kabbalists what that means, and I do not recall at the moment, my guess would be that they ascended into Tefirot, but I am not sure.
We see that there were two categories of kings, there were two categories of judgment, the whole world is under the sowing and reaping judgment whether you know or whether you believe that there is a God, or you know that God, the whole world is under the sowing and reaping judgment, and then the next stage of spiritual maturity is that you come under the white throne judgment where a person of God reveals the hidden sins of your heart and helps you change your nature and if that judgment is successful, you become a gazelle of God, you become someone who manifests at least in some measure the nature of God, I believe that is where I am now, I am certainly not perfect, but there is a lot of Christ in me, and then the final stage of the process is that Satan is swallowed up in you and you are in full stature, and your carnal mind is completely dead.
We see that the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah broke up into two groups, one group that the judgment worked for, and they became righteous, and the other group that the judgments did not work for, they escaped, they escaped from their oppressors, but their heart was still wrong. The kings of Sodom that the anointing overflowed from, these were the men who had gone on and become expressions of God, Christ was formed in them, and the oil, the anointing was flowing forth, and we have that in the church today, we have a large percentage of the church walking around with some faith in Jesus Christ, even some miracles, testimonies of miracles, and all kinds of good things that have happened in their life from the Holy Spirit, but their hearts are still evil. Then we have a category in the church of people that have escaped from Satan's plans to destroy them, who have gone on to the next stage, and they have become the gazelle of God and they are manifesting the anointing, and the anointing is male, the Holy Spirit is female and it is water, represented by water, the oil is the male anointing, it is Christ, and Christ the man is coming forth in the earth today, and He is coming forth to judge the female church, and the female church is fleeing from the man or the bridegroom, whatever you want to call Him, the bridegroom company, the female church is fleeing from Him, they do not believe He has authority, they do not, if they do believe it, they do not want to submit to it, and the result of running away from the male authority that God has sent to judge your sins, is that you will fall in the valley of Siddim, and whatever spiritual ascension you have attained to, you will lose, and it does not say how far down you could fall but you will certainly lose what you have and you will be divided from Jehovah, or divided from the glorified Jesus Christ.
These judgments are visited upon the sons of God, I do not know if that is the right word for them, let me take that back, these judgments are visited on the members of the church that have escaped from Satan and Leviathan but will not submit to the judgment of the male believers, the believers that have the anointing flowing through them, the believers that are the gazelle of God that are sent by God to judge the sins of the female church for the specific purpose of bringing forth the same life of God in them, that they too may become gazelles of God. The church is running from the man, and the whole concept of judgment of sin is an anathema to them, and they are fleeing and those who flee will fall and they will fall down into the carnal lifestyle and to the carnal lower Sefirot, and they will be divided from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Yet, the kings that anointing overflow from, escaped from the enemy kings of their own carnal mind, by ascending into the mountain of God. Wow, the anointing just tripled in this meeting, is anyone aware of it? The anointing just tripled in this meeting. Brethren, the Lord wants His church judged, not to hurt us, but to deliver us so that we might become gazelles of God, walking manifestations of His wisdom, His life and His power to bring deliverance and healing to God's people. Will you run from the judgment or will you submit and receive what God has for you, the reason the anointing just tripled in this meeting is because this is the message that He wants preached, and as I told you earlier, maybe twice in this message, this message is not restricted to people who will hear it or read it after it is transcribed, this message is going into the spirit, it is in the airways, it is the time for the judgment of your soul, you must recognize that you are not in the image of God, and you must begin to distinguish between your sin nature, and the Christ nature can go on, and if you do not go on, if you flee from the judgment, you will fall into the lower realms of this carnal flat world and you will be divided from the Lord Jesus Christ, you will lose what you have, you will lose the female anointing.
Right now you have the female anointing and the Lord is saying, Come up, come in to the male company, but you must have your sins judged to do that, if you flee from the judgment, you will not stay where you are, you will fall down into the carnality of this world, and lose your relationship with the Holy Spirit. This is the message that is being broadcast into the world today. Brethren, I do not know how it is going to manifest, and I do not like being a bearer of bad news and this is not bad news, but I tell you that very few people are going to respond to this message, and the result of it is that heavy judgment is about to fall on the church. I do believe however, that after judgment, and that judgment, we now know what it is going to be, the Lord is not putting sickness on you, the Lord is not putting you in car accidents, if you have some tragedy, some physical tragedy or infirmity in your life, that is a manifestation of the sowing and reaping judgment that has come upon you because of sin, this is not the judgment that is coming upon you because you have failed to have your sins judged, okay, there is a connection, if you have failed to have your sins judged, then Satan has legal ground to execute the judgments of the sowing and reaping judgment on you, but God has not done that to you, because you have refused to have your sins judged, can you hear the difference, can you hear the difference?
The judgment from God for refusing to have your sins judged is that, as we will see in the next verse, you will lose spiritual food, you will lose access to this message or ability to understand it, you lose your spiritual food and you will lose your personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, that is the judgment, that is the consequences for refusing to have your sins judged.
If you wind up getting sick or something else like that happening to you, that is the manifestation of the sowing and reaping judgment that you have opened yourself to because you have stepped out from under the protection of the Lord Jesus Christ by refusing to go forward with His plan. Is there anyone that does not understand that there are two different manifestations of judgment there, do you have that? Is that okay? Do you understand that? Okay.
Well I am glad this is the end because I do not know how much longer I am going to be standing under this anointing, it is very, very thick.
Verse 11, Genesis 14, "And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and all of their victuals and went their way." Please let me point out to you that it is just the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah, now there were five kings, there were five corrected kings, but it is only the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah that are under judgment right now, and in verse 10, it says, "and the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah sought to escape", okay, who were the other kings, where were the other kings? Maybe it is, well the kings are the ones that are doing the judgment, see.
Remember the kings of Sodom are the ones who are the white throne judgment, the king of Gomorrah is the one who had the sowing and reaping judgment, and there are two more kings okay, one that became the gazelle of God where the judgment worked for them, so they became the gazelle of God, and the other category where the judgment worked for them and Satan is being swallowed up in them, and of course the fifth king just identifies that all of these kings are descendants of the fallen Adam.
It is just the, and I think I have to make it clear to you again, that I do not think it is correct to say that certain people experienced one manifestation and another group of people experienced another manifestation, these are four stages of the ministry of God to all of the descendants of fallen Adam, and we all go through all stages, I believe we all go through all stages, the whole world is under the sowing and reaping judgment, when your time comes and the Lord calls you, you have the opportunity to have your sins judged which is the white throne judgment which is Sodom, the sowing and reaping judgment is Gomorrah, so Gomorrah, the king of Gomorrah is wicked and that is referring to the whole carnal world. By the time you get to Sodom, you are little less wicked because you have come to the Lord already, and your sins are being pointed out by a man of God, and then you go on to the next stage.
Look, if the judgment of having your sins pointed out works for you, you go on and you become a gazelle of God, but if it does not work for you, if you have your sins pointed out and it does not work for you, then you are going to the next stage of judgment which is that you lose everything that you have had from the female anointing, and you lose your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, which is a strong judgment that is designed to bring you to repentance you see, so you can either go the easy way or you go the hard way, but the next stage of development with God is that you have to manifest His nature, and either you are going to manifest His nature because you accept the exposure of your sins, and you do what you need to do to submit yourself to God to have your nature changed, or if you will not submit yourself, you go under a heavier judgment which is designed to bring you to repentance through distress, okay, but the next stage of development is that you will express the nature of God, and that is collective humanity will express the nature of God, we are His creation, we are His wife, we are His property, and this time period, this event whereby we are expressing the nature of the Serpent will come to an end, it will not go on forever and ever, it will come to an end, the Lord Jesus Christ will acquire His wife, will rescue His wife, and marry His wife, bring her into submission and she will manifest His nature either one way or the other. Praise the Lord.
We see in verse 11, again, only Sodom and Gomorrah are mentioned because the other two forms, the other two groups of believers who are under judgment are the ones who are judging the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah. Praise the Lord. The kings James version of verse 11 is, "And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah and their victuals", that is food, "and went their way." Alternate translation, "The enemy kings of their carnal mind took all of the spiritual riches that the corrected kings had acquired." How can I say it is the enemy kings because they fell down into the lower Sefirot, they fell down into the lower realms. When they sought to escape the judgment, they fell down to the lower realms. We have somebody right now who sought to escape the judgment, and she has already lost the food, she lost all contact with this message, she no longer goes into the website, I think it is because she could not understand it, so she has lost the food, see.
The enemy kings of their carnal mind took all the spiritual riches, her carnal mind now has her energy, whatever energy she was putting into a relationship with this deep message, her carnal mind has now acquired that energy. The carnal mind took all her spiritual riches, all of the spiritual riches that the corrected kings had acquired when they submitted to Sodom, what is Sodom? The white throne judgment, the exposure of their sins. The enemy kings of their carnal mind took all of their spiritual riches that the corrected kings had acquired when they submitted to the white throne judgment called Sodom, which is Jehovah's corrective judgment, and all of the spiritual riches that they had acquired from Gomorrah, which is Jehovah's righteous sowing and reaping judgment, you know some people do learn lessons from the sowing and reaping judgment, some people do learn lessons from the sowing and reaping judgment. If you are a young girl and your mother told you not to have premarital sex and you went out and you got pregnant or you got AIDS, you may not do that anymore, you may have learned your lesson. If you steal, and you wind up in jail, you may have learned your lesson, you may not do that anymore. We see that the believers that were judged by the sowing and reaping judgment, they also took all of their spiritual food, and carry it away into Leviathan's household.
Everything you lose will be absorbed by Leviathan. When the Lord sends judgment to your soul and He puts a rod across the back of Leviathan and Satan, when Christ Jesus boils Satan, Christ Jesus acquires the energy that Satan releases when she is boiled. When we sin and we run away from judgment, Satan and Leviathan and the carnal mind, they acquire the energy of Christ that we lose. I hope you all know that, that is an old principle that I have been teaching for years. Praise the Lord.
Here is the whole alternate translation, Genesis 14:1-11, "And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Babylon, Arioch king of Ellasar in Asia, Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal the expression of Leviathan, the formidable king of the nations that these kings made war with Bera the king of Sodom who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment, and with the wicked Birsha the king of Gomorrah who was chastised, Shinab the king of Admah, the father who turned to his other earthen side and was altered, and the illustrious Shemeber the king of Zeboiim the spiritual gazelle who had the mark of God, and Bela the king of Zoar who was brought very low so that Satan within him could be swallowed up.
And all of these corrected kings were dissolved is Satan's spiritual sea by Satan's witchcraft which exists in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that Adam fell into when he died. And these corrected kings who served Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem", and these kings, you see they were corrected, they had experienced the judgment, but they were still bound and in servitude to Chedorlaomer, and they were still dissolved in Satan's spiritual sea by Satan's witchcraft, "and these corrected kings served Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, but in the thirteenth year when they became spiritual men, they rebelled." Let me just go over that with you, they had their sins judged, but they were still dissolved in Satan's sea, okay, they had not, Christ in them had not acquired Satan's energy so Satan was still powerful in them, and because Satan was still powerful in them, they were still in bondage to Chedorlaomer, the king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem.
When the thirteenth year came, when they became a spiritual man, the rebelled, and righteous judgment came forth from the corrected kings when they returned from the desert, and that is so interesting, the thought that just popped into my mind is that John the Baptist came out of the desert when he came to baptize and baptize Jesus. "And they returned, and righteous judgment came forth from the corrected kings when they returned from the desert, and these corrected kings that dwelt under the palm tree, smote the whole country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites."
We see that to judge righteous judgment, you have to be connected to the root of the tree, the branch will not do it, the Holy Spirit will not do it, you do not have authority to judge sin in the Holy Spirit unless the Lord gives you a special dispensation and a particular situation, but most Holy Spirit preachers do not judge sin. "And they also smote the Amorites, and they smote the one who originally dwelt in the cave of the second energy center, but now dwells in the high place of the carnal mind, even Satan the strong support of the heathen kings who manifest their power through their speech.
And in the fourteenth year after the kings fell upon Chedorlaomer, the smote the Rephaim that were near to them", I believe that means Leviathan, "even the giants that were cured when they were sewn together with Ashteroth, and the Zuzims, one of the original tribes of Ham, a region of Palestine, and the Emmims, the Canaanitish tribe that tried to acquire the double portion by building a city that would reach into heaven, but after Bera the king of Sodom who was burnt in the purifying fires of judgment, and the wicked Birsha the king of Gomorrah who was chastised and Shinab the king of Admah the father who turned to his other earthen side and was altered, and the illustrious Shemeber the king of God, the gazelle who had the mark of God, and Bela the king who was brought very low so that Satan within him could be swallowed up.
After all of these kings escaped, then they joined in the battle with the enemy kings in the flat land that Leviathan rolled out in the midst of the black hole that the first Adam fell into when he died, and when Chedorlaomer king of the land occupied by the descendants of Shem, and Tidal, the expression of Leviathan the formidable king of the nations, and Arioch, king of Ellasar in Asia, these four enemy kings joined with the five corrected kings, they became confederates, and there were many black holes."
That is interesting that they became confederates, we were just talking about that off the message, how so many unions today that started out and got their power by protecting the workers have now joined in the power structure, have joined with the big power structure in Washington and that they are no longer really doing what is right for the people, this is exactly what this is talking about.
"And there were many black holes, there were many people within the black hole that this universe is in that the first Adam fell into when he died, the place where Leviathan rolled out the flat land of this world. And the anointing of God rose to the surface is some of the kings, but the other kings of Sodom and Gomorrah, sought to escape from their righteous judgment, and were cast down in that place and divided from Jehovah, but the kings that anointing overflowed from escaped from the enemy kings of the carnal mind by ascending into the mountain of God, and enemy kings of their carnal mind took all of the spiritual riches that the corrected kings had acquired when they submitted to Sodom which is Jehovah's corrective judgment, and from Gomorrah which is Jehovah's righteous sowing and reaping judgment, and they also took all of their spiritual food and carried it away into Leviathan's household." I have glanced over the next verses which Lord willing we will do next Thursday, and I see that even after Abraham who typifies the male anointing or the believer with the male anointing, even after he goes out and defeats the enemies of the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah, when the Scripture tells you what he retrieved, what Abraham retrieved, it does not include food, Abraham did not get the food back. Let me see if I can find that Scripture for you, let us see.
12 And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods and departed.
13 And there came one who had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew, for he dwelt on the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and brother of Aner; and these were confederate with Abram.
14 And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house (three hundred and eighteen), and pursued them unto Dan.
15 And he divided himself against them, he and his servants by night, and smote them and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus.
16 And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot and his goods, and the women also and the people. KJV
He did not bring back the food, all the food that was lost is still in the possession of the carnal mind, you have to get your energy back from the carnal mind by judgment, you have to be judged again, your sins have to be judged to get that spiritual food back from the carnal mind, why? Because that spiritual food has become a part of your carnal mind. Brethren if you eat a steak, that aspect of the cow has become a part of you, can someone come and take the steak back from you? It has become a part of your flesh, the only way to get the food back, is to go through the process of judgment again, and melt down that carnal mind and get back the spiritual energy that belongs to Christ. Praise the Lord. Are there any questions or comments about this? Yes.
COMMENT: I have two, the first one, you were talking Deborah, and her roots who were next to the palm tree, well I read a study on the palm tree, and the palm tree represents righteousness, and as tall as the palm tree is, the roots go down deep into the ground the same length, and that if a palm tree is ever blown over, it is the only tree that will spring back, so in other words, it is just not going to be destroyed.
The other thing was, you were talking about in I think verse 10, or even the beginning of 11, and you were talking about the spiritual gazelle, I felt the Lord took me into Matthew 25, and the spiritual gazelles were righteous, they judge your sins, and because they judged your sins, they had the oil, they were the wise, the unwise did not completely judge their sins and had no oil, and that is what I felt that Lord was saying.
PASTOR VITALE: Well that is excellent, because you may recall that at the beginning of this message, I told you that this message and this series of messages that we are doing, I intimately connected to the concept of Lot's escape from Sodom, and also to the account of the ten virgins, and we will definitely be doing that comparison in a future message, it is the same message, it is the same message with a different parable, and the account of the ten virgins is exactly what is being spoken about here, thank you very much, okay, anybody else have anything to say? Praise the Lord. God bless you, I can hardly keep my eyes open, I just want to thank the Lord and praise Him for His anointing and thank Him that we have been, really we are deprived of this anointing for almost a whole year because of witchcraft in the congregation, and I just praise Him for visiting us in the name of Jesus. Amen.
