If any man has ears to hear, let him hear....

    Peace in Christ.

    The Lord mercifully comes in this time of the severe famine of hearing the true Word of God to open up the Scriptures via the Spirit of Truth sent from Heaven to speak to our hearing ears….and we are to take heed on how we hear for more heavenly knowledge will be given to those who will truly hear. He speaks the heavenly knowledge of the Scriptures to our hearing ears. It is a “supper” that we are to eat of.

    If any have ears to hear, let him hear.

    Mark 4:23-25 KJV
    (23) If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
    (24) And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given.
    (25) For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.


    He that has ears to hear, let him hear.

    Mark 4:9-12 KJV
    (9) And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
    (10) And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.


    Those who will hear will be given the mystery of the kingdom of God but those who are without….outside…all these things are done in parables.

    Those outside will stay outside of the heavenly understanding of the Scriptures and will not be able to enter in to understand.

    The natural man in his parable understanding of the Scriptures will not enter in to understand the spiritual things that He will speak. The Scriptures will stay in parable form for those who will act in their shallowness of the flesh….being quick to anger, quick to speak evil, etc.

    (11) And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
    (12) That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.


    The natural man will not receive the things taught in the Holy Spirit for they will sound like foolishness unto him ….and so he will not be able know them as he will stay “outside” that understanding.

    The things of the Spirit of God are spiritually discerned….that is, we are to sow to the Spirit when we hear His voice speaking so that we may enter into His understanding instead of behaving in the flesh with natural man’s religious pride, contentions, wrath, envy, strife of what they will hear.

    The natural man will not enter in to know anything and what little he will hear will be removed so that he cannot believe in what he hears.

    1 Corinthians 2:12-14 KJV
    (12) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
    (13) Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
    (14) But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.


    But happy (blessed) are they that do His commandments. They will have right to the tree of life and will be able to enter in through the gates into the city. They will be able to enter in to the heavenly knowledge of the heavenly city.

    Revelation 22: KJV
    (14) Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.


    Outside are those who will continue to act in the flesh in unbelief towards what they hear….His testimony to the churches. They will continue in their handling/preaching of the Word of God in deceit and will continue preaching the doctrines and commandments of men whereby many hate one another over....being like the world in their denominations.

    (15) For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
    (16) I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.


    The Lord comes to teach His learners (disciples) who will come unto Him when He shall “open His mouth” and teach them.

    Matthew 5:1-5 KJV
    (1) And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
    (2) And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,


    Happy (blessed) are the “poor in spirit”….that is, poor in breath as they will not speak many words in response to what they hear Him teaching. They will be quick to hear what His opened mouth will teach and will be slow to speak (poor in words….poor in breath….poor in spirit) and slow to wrath. The wrath of man does not work the righteousness of God.

    (3) Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

    Instead of laughing in mockery at what they will hear Him speaking, they will mourn and so shall be comforted in what they hear. They will not act in pride.

    (4) Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.

    Happy are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. They will not act in pride towards what they will hear Him saying but will humble themselves.

    (5) Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

    Happy (blessed) are those who are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. The “supper” is the receiving of the true sayings of God….the true interpretation of the Scriptures.

    Revelation 19:9 KJV
    (9) And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.


    They will hear in belief….receiving the testimony of the Lord Jesus (the true sayings of God in the Spirit)…and will set to seal that God is true. No natural man will receive His testimony but will continue to receive the preaching of the earthly man in his earthly understanding of the Scriptures.

    John 3:31-34 KJV
    (31) He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.
    (32) And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.
    (33) He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.
    (34) For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God:
    for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.


    His learners will be found remembering to let brotherly love continue and will be able to open unto Him immediately when they shall hear His voice that will come and knock.

    Luke 12:35-37 KJV
    (35) Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
    (36) And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.


    Happy are those servants whom the Lord when He comes shall find them “watching”….awake to the righteousness of God….as He shall come forth and serve them the meat of the Word of God.

    (37) Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

    For God resists the proud but gives grace unto the humble.

    James 4:6-10 KJV
    (6) But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
    (7) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.


    The meek will draw near to God and will cleanse their hands and purify their hearts in the blood of the Lamb. They will humble themselves instead of mocking in laughter in unbelief of what they will hear.

    (8) Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
    (9) Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
    (10) Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.


    They will be able to “eat” of what they hear for they will take of the blood of the Lamb and will cleanse their hands (the 2 side posts of house) and will cleanse their hearts (the upper door post).

    Exodus 12:7-9 KJV
    (7) And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.


    They will eat of what they hear in this “night” of no understanding and will have faith in what they hear: “roast with fire”. They will be hot and not cold as they hear His testimony.

    They will keep the feast of brotherly love (entertaining those strangers who come in His name to speak His words of spirit and life) with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth and not with the leavened bread of malice and wickedness.

    They will eat of what they will hear with “bitter herbs”….turning their laughter to mourning and their joy to heaviness. They will be afflicted and mourn and weep.

    (8) And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

    The believers of what they will hear Him teaching will not eat of it “raw”…that is, with harshness. They will not react with harsh words in unbelief and will not “sodden at all with water”…that is, they will not flow evil words out of their mouths in the boiling wrath of their heart.

    They will instead have faith and will eat everything in haste that He….the Lamb… shall speak and will not leave anything.

    (9) Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

    We are to eat of what He speaks….girding up the loins of our mind as we hear the disclosure (revelation) of Jesus Christ . We are to be found of Him in peace….having our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6:15).

    Exodus 12:11 KJV
    (11) And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD'S passover.


    Thus we shall eat it….the disclosure of Jesus Christ who opens up His mouth to teach us…and we are to be found of Him with the “loins of our mind” girded up…being sober and not be found “drunk” on the wine of wrath of which we forget to do His righteousness.

    1 Peter 1:13-16 KJV
    (13) Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;
    (14) As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
    (15) But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
    (16) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

    Peace in Christ.

    We must put away leaven out of our houses...

    Exo 12:15 KJV
    (15) Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.


    We must purge out the "old leaven" so that we may be a new lump (1 Corinthians 5:7)....in other words, we are to no longer keep company with those who are called "brothers" but are covetous who are preaching things they ought not be for money's sake. They have the Father's wife....the church...the called out...by making merchandise of her with their "preaching"...using feigned words to do so.
    We are not to eat with such in our gatherings when we gather together in His name. We must not sit together with them.

    'No manner of work shall be done in them". (Exodus 12:15). The holy "convocation" (Hebrew "miqrâ' "="called out" or "meeting") must not include those who are "working" within the church....preaching for a paycheck.

    Every person must work with his own hands outside the holy gathering for his earthly needs (as Paul showed us being a tentmaker).

    No manner of work shall be done within the holy gatherings. The only acceptable work is to work with our own hands outside of the gathering in order to eat.

    "....save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you". That is, the work that must be done SEPARATE from the church so that we may eat.

    Exo 12:15 KJV
    (16) And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.


    No manner of work shall be done in them (the holy meetings). Every man must instead work for his own food alone outside of the gatherings. With quietness (not preaching for pay) they are to work and eat their own bread.

    2Th 3:12 KJV
    (12) Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.


    We must withdraw ourselves from every brother who will not receive this "tradition"...transmission...of the original apostles of Christ who said to follow them in working with our own hands to support ourselves. We must purge the old leaven from our midst when they will continue to not obey the commandment to work with their own hands to support their own earthly necessities.

    2Th 3:6-10 KJV
    (6) Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
    (7) For yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;


    The original apostles of Christ did not eat any man's bread for nothing but instead worked hard night and day with their own hands to support their own earthly necessities.

    (8) Neither did we eat any man's bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:

    The original apostles of Christ had the power to eat from those they preached to but did forgo that power and now their "tradition" is binding upon all of us after them to follow their example.

    (9) Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.

    This "work" must not be within the church but outside so that we may eat...working with our own hands to support our own earthly needs.

    (10) For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.


    If any do not obey the apostle's word by this letter, we are to note that person and have no company with him....purging out the old leaven.

    2Th 3:14 KJV
    (14) And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.


    Again, we must not keep company with them.

    1Co 5:11-13 KJV
    (11) But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.


    We must pay attention to whom we are sitting together with in our gatherings and put away from among us those who are preaching for pay...who are a "hireling". We are to judge them those who are within the holy gatherings and not those who are outside....to purge the old leaven in our midst as a church.

    God judges those who are in the outside world....in "Egypt".

    (12) For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
    (13) But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.


    The LORD judges them who are in the outside world....the "Egyptians". We don't judge them.

    The outside world and its lusts are perishing as we speak for no flesh is being saved in the world. The "firstborn" = the natural body as the mortal body is first born into this world. It is a blank slate before we begin to speak and have a personality.

    Exo 12:12-13 KJV
    (12) For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.
    (13) And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.


    The "firstborn" is the natural body that is perishing under the judgment of God.

    1Co 15:46 KJV
    (46) Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

    Peace in Christ.

    We are to cleanse our hearts (the "lintel") and our hands (the "two side posts") in the blood of the Lamb so that the "destroyer" (meaning "to decay") will not come in unto our "houses" (our mortal bodies) to smite us.

    The outside people of the world (the "Egyptians" so-to-speak) are being destroyed as we speak. This is an ongoing thing for everyone from the highest position in this world to the lowest is being destroyed....from man to beast (the brute beasts of men). No flesh is being saved.

    Exo 12:23 KJV
    (23) For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.


    And we must not keep company with those who are preaching things that they ought not be (the doctrines and commandments of men) for money's sake.... of which they preach for in the hidden covetousness of their hearts.

    We are to withdraw from such....to deliver such an one unto Satan (the "destroyer") for the destruction of the flesh that is going on now by the "destroyer" in the world.

    1Co 5:4-6 KJV
    (4) In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
    (5) To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.


    A man must not be taking advantage of the church....the "wife". A little leaven leavens the whole lump. One bad apple rots the entire group.

    (6) Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?


    They "defile the flesh" when we sit together with them in their churches.

    We commit "fornication" when we sit together with them in their preaching things that they ought not be for money's sake. We become ONE FLESH with them in their destruction of their mortal flesh. We sin against our own mortal body when we sit together with them as we are being destroyed along with them. Our mortal bodies are bought with a price and so we must glorify God in our mortal bodies by not going to keep company with the covetous pastors who defile our mortal flesh.

    1Co 6:15-20KJV
    (15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
    (16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
    (17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
    (18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
    (19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
    (20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

    Remember Achan who was covetous and so Israel could not stand before its enemies.

    Jos 7:11-12 KJV
    (11) Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed my covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff.
    (12) Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you.
    (13) Up, sanctify the people, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith the LORD God of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you.
    (14) In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which the LORD taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which the LORD shall take shall come by households; and the household which the LORD shall take shall come man by man.



    The LORD smites the "Egyptians"....those people of the outside world....and delivers the "houses" (our mortal bodies) of those who will keep the sacrifice of the Lamb.

    Exo 12:27 KJV
    (27) That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD'S passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.
