But I want you to notice that during the OT times, the light was not clear. Jesus was the light. When Jesus came on earth, in the evening time, he brought light. The evening time was his earthly life. This is when he gave us the light of truth. It did away with that cloudy day which was not clearly light or dark. But the mixture was not cleared up until the Day of Pentecost. Then those Apostles, to whom Jesus had given understanding, brought the evening light and made it clear.
That was the mixture of law and grace, or the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. That is the darkness. Jesus gave clear light, in the evening time. Yet in this ‘day’ it is speaking of, which is the life of Jesus, this light was not clear until the evening time of his life, for he had to teach both law and grace. See during the OT times, law kept the light from ever being clear. Now Jesus had the light, and the light is shining in this darkness, yet this darkness is mixing with the light, and making it not be clear. At the resurrection this LIGHT became totally clear. This is the LIGHT which is now shining clearly.
Eze 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.
See here is another prophet declaring that the Day of the Lord is a cloudy day. It is the time of the heathen. This is when they crucified Jesus. So in all of this the light was not clear nor totally dark. The Day of the Lord is the crucifixion of Jesus. I know this message will be very confusing to you. I know these things have been hidden under the darkness of carnality. But just take this a bit at a time and study it and pray for truth. Else you will never see these glorious secrets of the deep things of God. Now the sixth seal was the same cloudy day of the crucifixion of Jesus. Always keep in mind that God smote Jesus. He was smitten of God. God turned his back on Jesus and let the sins of the world be upon him. See, In Jesus was both life and death, light and darkness. On the outside, or human flesh, Jesus was first-man Adam, or carnal, mortal flesh. This was the earth without form and void. But inside Jesus, where the Word and Spirit of God dwelt, there was light, or heaven. Now I know what I am fixing to say will be a big stumbling block to almost any and all who ever hear this. But it is solidly taught in Scripture. The outer man, Mary’s son, was the anti-Christ. Human flesh is anti-Christ. It is contrary to God and is not subject to God. Jesus took on himself the likeness of sinful flesh. This outer shell had to die and be born again. This was accomplished at Calvary, when God smote Jesus. Mr 6:3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.
See, those people were looking at the outward man and they called him the son of Mary. They did not see the heaven inside this earthly man. The outer man is the son of Mary. It is human flesh. Jesus was a man. But inside this man was a son of God, and this son of God is the heaven. Each true child of God has this same heaven inside ourselves. We have the Earth outside.
Jesus’ soul then went into hell fire. He had to destroy this likeness of sinful man, first-man Adam. This is why it is so very wrong to say that Jesus, the man, was God. You will never, ever see truth if you hold to this lie. Jesus had to die to self. He had to crucify his own human life. This was done each day of his life, not at Calvary. At Calvary is where God smote the sinful anti-Christ. I am NOT saying that Jesus did sin. No, he lived a perfect life. But in humanity, he was first-man Adam. This rebellious state of man had to be destroyed. So inside Jesus was heaven and earth, life and death, light and darkness. These had to be separated. The separation occurred at the resurrection of Jesus.
Now back to the dark, cloudy day. Remember that Jesus is the Day. But this day has become cloudy. Also it is showing that during the OT times, the light of God was only cloudy and darkly. The Sixth seal was Calvary. Watch: Rev 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; Re 6:13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. Re 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
The shaking of the mighty wind was at Pentecost. But let me show you about the dark and cloudy day which is right here, at the sixth seal. Eze 34:12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
Zec 13:7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.
The two above Scriptures, tied together, show that the crucifixion of Jesus, as the sword smote him, was the cloudy and dark day in which his sheep were scattered. Eze 32:7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. Eze 32:8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.
Now that clearly is the same thing, the sixth seal, or the crucifixion of Jesus, but is also pertains to the casting out of Adam from the Garden of Eden, at the time of the flood. The ‘heaven’ in Jesus was covered, the sun was covered with a cloud. This cloud was his human flesh, which is now considered to be the sinful beast. At the time of his death, darkness was upon his land, both naturally and spiritually. The ‘sun’ inside him was covered and no one could see the brightness of the glory of truth he carried inside himself. The moon, (the law and flesh) was not giving out any light. The stars, God’s ministers, were not giving out any light. Jesus was not giving out any light. So in this dark, cloudy DAY, the sheep were scattered.
When I teach these kinds of deep messages, truths which have not been taught before, (that I know of), I must of necessity, give you many proofs, or no one could possibly understand these things. So now I will show you a great mystery proving what I said about the outer man, Jesus, being anti-Christ. And I will certainly understand that most of you will have trouble believing what I am going to show you here.
Eze 32:2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations, and thou art as a whale in the seas: and thou camest forth with thy rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and fouledst their rivers.
In order to get the truth of Scripture, you must understand that when it speaks of people such as Pharaoh, it is only using this person to show a spiritual truth. This is NOT speaking about any real Pharaoh. Each of the above words have a hidden spiritual meaning. It is revealing spiritual secrets. Being a young ‘lion’ is revealing this ones nature. A lion is a conqueror. He destroys and takes the prey. A whale is a secret also in Scripture. It is NOT speaking of natural lions or whales here. It is not speaking of the natural sea or rivers. Rivers and seas means nations of people. Rivers also represent the Holy Ghost and the Word of God. Out of your belly shall flow RIVERS of living water. The River of Life is the Word of God and the spirit of God, which gives eternal life. It is these kinds of rivers it is speaking of here.
Jesus said as Jonah was three days and nights in the belly of the WHALE, so shall he be in the heart of the EARTH. Jesus is the LION of the tribe of Judah. Keep this in mind. Now look at what this ‘lion’ did. He came forth with his own Rivers. He troubled the waters of their rivers and fouled them. Thus he brought them into a cloudy condition, of not being clear about anything. His teachings of Grace fouled the teachings of law. He seemed to ‘attack’ the Scribes, and priests, and all the religious leaders of his day. His teachings were contrary to all they believed as Moses taught them. Thus he fouled their ‘rivers’ or teachings…(Ye have heard that it has been said……BUT I say unto you).
Eze 32:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will therefore spread out my net over thee with a company of many people; and they shall bring thee up in my net. Eze 32:4 Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee. Eze 32:5 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the valleys with thy height.
What is God’s NET? Jesus was always showing the disciples how to use the net to catch fish. But He told them I will make you fishers of men. The kingdom of heaven is like a NET. It was cast out into the ‘sea’ of mankind and caught of every kind. This is the gospel NET here. A company of many people signifies that the NT Salvation went to all peoples. All peoples took part in casting out this NET of the kingdom message. The fowls represent the people. Those of ‘heaven’ are those who serve God. They remain upon Jesus’ message or his flesh. They eat what he gives. God laid the flesh, or spiritual meat, or Jesus, upon all the mountains and valleys. Thus the ‘fowls’ all came to the supper of God and ate to the full. They were filled with the FLESH of Jesus, the LIGHT OF LIFE.
Eze 32:6 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou swimmest, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of thee.
This prophecy was telling Jesus that I will place your blood upon all the land and all the rivers shall be full of thee. This is how life was given to all the world.
Eze 32:7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light. Eze 32:8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.
The above is for when Jesus died. The heaven inside him was covered with darkness of death. His sun of truth was covered with a cloud and the law which he had was now dark, not giving out any light. Everything was made dark over the land and over him as he died.
Eze 32:9 I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known.
The entire earth of his day was troubled or vexed with this matter of the crucifixion. God brought the destruction or death of Jesus, into all nations and countries of the world. People who knew not Jesus were now brought into Grace and salvation, as they heard and believed the message of the death of Jesus.
Eze 32:10 Yea, I will make many people amazed at thee, and their kings shall be horribly afraid for thee, when I shall brandish my sword before them; and they shall tremble at every moment, every man for his own life, in the day of thy fall. Eze 32:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The sword of the king of Babylon shall come upon thee.
Many people, over the whole world, and their kings were horribly afraid because of Jesus. God’s Sword was brandished before them, as He smote Jesus. Their trembling or fear, was the great ‘earthquakes’ which took place there, in the day that Jesus fell. The sword of the king of Babylon had come against Jesus, as God allowed the Romans and the Jews to kill this man-of-sin. (Now don’t go getting on the wrong track here. This man on the cross now has the sins of the whole world on him. He is now the scape goat for all the world. God placed him there. Until you can grasp this hidden truth, you will never ever understand the book of Daniel.)
Eze 32:12 By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to fall, the terrible of the nations, all of them: and they shall spoil the pomp of Egypt, and all the multitude thereof shall be destroyed. Eze 32:13 I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the great waters; neither shall the foot of man trouble them any more, nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them. Eze 32:14 Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to run like oil, saith the Lord GOD.
Verse 12 speaks of the ministry of the Apostles, as they tear down the walls of Babylon or Egypt. He has now given us the great waters in truth and will not allow the beasts (sinful man) to trouble our ‘waters’ or truth, anymore. But notice the next great verse! Then will I make their waters DEEP, and cause their RIVERS to run like OIL.
Now that is great. It is the truth, the DEEP again being clear. The OIL is the power of the Holy Ghost bringing truth to light and LIFE. This was fulfilled at Pentecost.
All of the Word of God was fulfilled at Calvary and Pentecost. If you look for the answers elsewhere, you will find only confusion and error. And unless you learn the above truth, you could not possibly ever understand Daniel correctly. That is why all the teachings going before on Daniel and Revelation and Genesis, have all been wrong.
Now at his resurrection, there is no more death, no more darkness, no more mixture, so the LIGHT is good, and has become clear. Now the LIGHT has been separated or divided from the DARKNESS. Now they will never be mixed together again. Now we can see clearly how to find life, the light of the DAY STAR SHINING IN OUR HEARTS. Glory to God! [Lu 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Lu 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.]
See here Jesus opened their understanding. This means he gave them the LIGHT clearly for the first time. He had told them of the OT writings of himself, but they had not understood. Now they understand or see clearly. He took away their ‘darkness’ and gave them pure LIGHT or truth. Thus the Spirit of God was moving upon the face of these waters. Here is where he divided the light from the darkness. Here Jesus no longer has to mix his grace teachings with law. Here Jesus is no longer in a mortal body. He is pure light or life now. The mixture has been done away with. Death has been abolished. Law has been abolished. Glory. He that has ears let him hear. If you cannot ‘hear’ pure GRACE in Scriptures, you are still mixed up in this tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which is death and darkness. It is the NIGHT. You walk in the night, you stumble. The Word of God STILL contains the message of both law and grace. Take heed HOW you HEAR. Paul taught both law and grace. But he separated them to those who can hear.
Praise His Holy Name for such glorious revelation! Shout for Joy! If you try now to mix law and grace, you are into this cloudy, confusing condition. You must come into the LIGHT to have LIFE. Only Those of us who have come into the light understand the difference between law and grace. This is why most people can never see the difference between law and grace, they are still under that cloudy day. They have not repented and been baptized into his death and been resurrected into his life. Only in LIFE is this LIGHT shining clearly. This explains why Jesus told his disciples, Ye are the LIGHT of the world. We will get to that in Day Four.
This is why Lucifer was called the son of the morning. He was created as a glorified man in the image of God. He lost his glory and went into darkness, when he rebelled and sinned against God in that Garden of Eden. Now I dare say this truth is one of the main reasons people will fight this pure truth. They do not want to ever admit that their first father, Adam, is this evil one. Nevertheless, the truth shall stand eternally. Adam was the Son of God, in the image of God. He was therefore the son of the morning.
When you study Daniel 8, you will see that a goat comes up to destroy the Ram. After this, the goat becomes great. Now read this: Zec 3:1 And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
I know that unless you are truly receiving revelation from God, you will think this is about an earthly man called Joshua. But no, it is about Jesus Christ. Jesus is called by many names in Scripture. This is a secret which keeps many from ever really understanding Jesus or Scripture. This is about Jesus. See that, Satan standing at his right hand to resist him? That is the same as this goat which comes up after the Ram. It is Satan’s kingdom again taking over after Jesus died and set us free. Law again took over the church. If you think this is not about Jesus, read on: Zec 3:3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. Zec 3:4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
Zec 3:5 And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the LORD stood by.
So what does it mean, Joshua was clothed with filthy garments? It is Jesus at the cross, after the sins of the world were placed on him. It also represents this human flesh. The fair mitre is that crown of thorns they put on his head and the gorgeous robe they put on him in order to mock him. That is what this is speaking of. Also it is about the selling of Jesus by Judas. They set a price on his head. But see that he was given a change of raiment. This was his resurrection, when he was given a glorified body.
Here is where this was fulfilled: Re 12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
Here Jesus was clothed with the sun, or this great light in Genesis one. He is now in full truth and glory. The moon, or flesh and law, are now under his feet. This crown of twelve stars is the twelve Apostles. It calls him a woman here. Why? Simple. He is the wife of God to bear other sons of God into the likeness and image of God. Besides, the tree of life is called a female: Re 22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. Re 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
Here is that great RIVER flowing again. And here the tree of life yields HER fruit every month. She is bearing children every month.
Zec 3:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. Zec 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.
Zec 3:9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. (This is Day One in Genesis.)
See here that Joshua was told that if he obeyed God, he would be set up to judge God’s house. We know this is Jesus. The fellows that sat before him were the Apostles. They are the ones who were a wonder. They were men wondered at. They are the ones Joel spoke of in Joel 2, who were for signs and wonders. Those seven eyes on that stone was clearly Jesus.
Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Ge 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Now I have already explained about the darkness being upon the face of the deep. Then the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters, so? OK, Revelation 17 shows the waters to be the peoples of the world. So, the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the people of Christ at Pentecost. This is when and how they received the Spirit of God. See when the Spirit of God moved upon these waters, God said to them, Let there be light and they received the knowledge of TRUTH or LIFE. They came into Grace and found Light. So there was LIGHT in all the camp of Christ. The Egyptians were in darkness and the Israelites had light all night, as the pillar of fire (Pentecost) stood between the two.
I told you that the sixth seal was the time of the crucifixion. Here is more proof of this: Lu 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Lu 23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. This matches perfectly the sixth seal. OK now, here is proof that the darkness which was upon the face of these waters, or people, was Satan: Ac 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. So this clearly proves that the darkness is the power of Satan. So Satan was blinding the people until Jesus brought us light. This happened on the ‘first day’. It is the life of Jesus. This power of Satan, Adam, was blocking the deep or truths of God from coming clear. This was the darkness upon the face of the deep.
I found this Scripture very interesting concerning this VOID: Nu 30:11 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. 30:12 But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and the LORD shall forgive her. Nu 30:13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void. Nu 30:14 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them. Nu 30:15 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath heard them; then he shall bear her iniquity. Nu 30:16 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, being yet in her youth in her father's house.
OK, now, we are this youth in our father’s house and we are this wife. Mankind made up all kinds of vows, doctrines, bondage, laws, etc, to bind us with. But if our father or our husband, (Jesus) hears this and makes it VOID, then he must bear our iniquity. He did just that. He took our iniquities upon himself and VOIDED our bondage. Thus he took on him this void and redeemed us from man’s own foolish bondage of laws. He bore our iniquities in his own body. Thus his ‘earth’ or body was a void. But for those who refuse his redemption, as revealed in Acts, then he allows their bondage to stand and thus they are not forgiven. Their sin remains. They are doomed to their darkness and blindness, bringing death to their soul. This is the fate of all who cling to law.
I am showing you this is how you need to study Genesis one, or any other Scripture. This will help you understand Daniel 8. Daniel 8 is about Genesis one. It is about the evening and the morning. It is about Zech. 3. Put it together. There is also mystery as to what the ‘first’ day means. What does the ‘second’ day mean? Now I know almost everyone will mock this and say I am just imagining things. But that is why they never get any real truth or revelation. They think all these words have our English meaning. It is not so. These things are totally spiritually discerned. I will show in another part of these messages that these things in Daniel 8 are not what people think they are. I will prove that it is about Jesus, not some earthly person who lived down in time, as everyone thinks. I will show you how to prove these things when I can get that part written up. But for now, this is a lot to study. I have finally finished this on Feb. 22, 2007.
