Captivity

Seventh Thunder February 25, 2018

Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Sin is our unrighteousness, our knowledge of evil amongst the good, and like pure water which has been mixed with dirt, the whole body becomes defiled, and so it is with the spirit. Our purpose here, the meaning of life, is to become pure again, like we once were before we desired the knowledge of evil. 

Proverbs 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.

Unfortunately, being prisoners of sin, we seek to capture others into the way of sin, whether it be through politics, religion or philosophy. With no exceptions, the way of man is sin, even if in their own minds they think they're good and holy.

Proverbs 20:6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

Those who deceive themselves will deceive others, and truth comes not by the word of man. Even the words of Jesus were not his own.

John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

So while people stand around singing songs about Jesus, and having people pray to Jesus, praising his name in vain, they have neglected the most important thing. The Father whose name Jesus came in.

John 5:42-44 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

As I've said many times on these pages, none teaches about the Father, but the Father himself.

Matthew 10:20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.

And Jesus merely taught people how to turn to the Father so that they could receive his spirit, so that they could do the Father's will, and not their own. Now the Father in a man wouldn't need to call himself a Christian, Muslim nor anything else now would he?

Matthew 15:13-14 But he answered and said, Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

They have brought another field and have planted plants in a land that is not theirs, which will be left barren, by pestilence and famine. The pestilence being the wisdom of the world, and the famine being the lack of knowledge from the Father.

Matthew 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

So that others can come across treasure hidden in the field, and sell all that they have and buy that field. The fellowship of the mystery, a mystery hid in a field.

Ephesians 3:9-11 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church (The word Church has replaced the word Ecclesia in the New Testament, and so should read those called out by the Father to receive) the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

And what people should be selling is their knowledge of the world, which rules over them. Especially the knowledge preached unto man by the Churches who have been corrupt since their inception.They have added to the book and taken away from the book, and so receive the plagues of the book, which is War, (The lack of peace in your mind) Pestilence, (The things of the world which corrupt the mind) Famine (The lack of knowledge from God) and Death. (Not knowing your spirit, since it is dead to the world, and cleaved to the soul of good and evil, lost in its unrighteousness) As said, the dead will bury their dead.

Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

With that said, none are held captive forever, some will be first and some will be last, but few in any generation will FIND the way, that mystery hidden in the field, but all will in their time. That is the GOOD news, not the eternal damnation which the religious leaders have added to the New Testament, for reasons most atheists know.

1 Corinthians 2:7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:

For control. It why the MYSTERY is hidden so it cannot be corrupted, and since it is hid in God, one must turn within to him in that secret place of the spirit, so that in spirit he can reveal things to you openly. Because once you have it, you can see it as plain as day in the Old Testament, because that veil upon your hearts will be removed.

2 Corinthians 3:14-17 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

Which is why not one jot of the Law and the Prophets will pass until all is fulfilled, because currently all are held captive by their own hearts. 

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

The Father knowing this, is patient in his work on us, and is all forgiving, and with the Father's righteousness which we should seek within, in all sincerity to improve our mind and our attitudes, our spirit is slowly renewed in his grace, as he helps us develop our will to overcome the wiles and wickedness of our evil soul. His purpose is one, and his will is one.

Luke 17:33-35 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left. Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 

So you have to make that two, one, because one is of the Earth, (Mammon) and the other is of the Spirit, (God) both need to serve one purpose, which is the will of the Father.

1 Timothy 2 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.

This is what the Father desires, and this is what will happen to each and every one of us. We will ALL in time be granted the knowledge of truth and return to Heaven. But, as Jesus said, there is no way to the Father by him. Meaning by doing what he taught us to do. This is the foundation of the GOOD NEWS.

2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

Without the Father's help we're subject to the soul's wiles he has cast upon ALL of us, deceiving the whole world. We need the Father's help, and this is what Jesus was sent to teach, we need God to overcome Satan's deception, that veil that he has upon our minds. The wicked thoughts and imagination of the heart, that we erroneously identify with as our-self. We know not what we do, and with God, we can learn of our heart, resisting Satan and overcome it.

Isaiah 25:7 And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the vail that is spread over all nations.

Learn what manner of God we worship. If the God does bad, it is Satan, and his knowledge of evil, if the God be merciful and forgiving and all patient it is the Father. It is good to have that in mind when reading scripture, because the Lord God was a crooked God, that ends up destroying his crooked creation when the way of the Lord was made straight.

Isaiah 27:1 In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

Do not be fooled by the many contradictions in the Old Testament, most of which are because people mistakenly believe that they're reading about one the one good God, instead of the crooked Lord God.

Isaiah 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.

Ultimately the Bible itself is about the fall of the people through the Lord God and their eventual redemption through Jesus.

Romans 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.

The apostles knew the following, so why don't others? Is not because it is not preached in your religions?

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Jesus himself said he was the Lord, but of course biblical scholars state that the Lord in the Old Testament means something different to the Lord in the New Testament. And of course, they're those who believe the Lord, Jesus and the Father are one and the same being. They're not to be blunt.

Matthew 21:2-6 Saying unto them, Go into the village over against you, and straightway ye shall find an ass tied, and a colt with her: loose them, and bring them unto me. And if any man say ought unto you, ye shall say, The Lord hath need of them; and straightway he will send them. All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them,

Even Satan himself tempted Jesus, to make him his captive, by offering the rule of the world.

Matthew 4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Because technically the Lord is the God of that crooked serpent, his creation, which is why by his word, that great sword he destroys it.

Job 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

And again remember the nature of Satan. He is a deceiver and a destroyer of truth, and uses the knowledge of good and evil within us to do just that, which is why the Lord who was crooked and made the serpent, has to be the one to eventually destroy it, because only he can do that, because he created it. It is not to be underestimated if it can tempt its creator. Keep that in mind.

Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Also remember who the King is, and who the Prince of this world is, who works within the children of disobedience, which most think is everybody else but themselves. Another crafty deception by that subtle serpent. Remember how it works, it can make people hallucinate, and hear voices for example, nothing is beyond its imagination. It creates all your dreams, and formulates your own character, even down to what you will believe or disbelieve.

Matthew 24:23-24 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Trust me, your own hearts contents can manifest in front of you, and convince you of almost anything, not to mention they're those who can use that power to deceive others, either knowingly or not.

2 Corinthians 11-14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

This is Satan's world, and he'll speak and tempt people with the good and evil of this world, through anyone not of the Father. Even by producing so-called spiritual miracles which can further mislead people. Just look what he did to Judas, and before that, he desired to sift Peter like wheat.

John 13:2. The evening meal was underway, and the devil had already put into the heart of Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus.

ALL of us are connected to Satan because the heart, the soul in a man is Satan. One thing in all people. A great city of which we are its inhabitant, held captive by his will.  And throughout the Bible they're examples of the Lord God, hardening the hearts of people, because it was his device that he created, to give us the knowledge of good and evil, which we desired in the beginning. The Father desires to break the hearts (soul) rule over us so that we do no more evil, and only do the good of the Father, by doing his will. You'll know them by their fruit.

Jeremiah 24:2-3 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad. Then said the Lord unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said, Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.

All thought, imagination, dreams and emotions are of the soul, they're the evil figs which we do eat and act upon. As Jesus said, we know not what we do, because we are enthralled by the soul and it's contents. The soul whispers to our mind in its voice, making us believe we are the soul, that its thoughts and ideas are our thoughts and ideas. It is like psychosis or schizophrenia, but silent.

2 Samuel 22:31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.

Without the Word of God to educate us, we are forever lost. Hence why we need revelation from the Father to help cleave our spirit (mind) from the soul. No person can do this for anyone, no one but God. Faith in him is what leads the way, he is our armour and shield, and his word is our sword, slicing through the deception of Satan, revealing the the truth to our minds.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Without it, we won't know our own soul, and continue on the path of unrighteousness.

Job 9:21 Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.

Revelation reveals it to us, renewing our mind (spirit). Currently most of us just believe we have a soul or not, and even when we believe, we just blindly worship our own hearts (I trust in my heart, I listen with my heart, etc), not knowing that we are a spirit, and in ignorance of the fact that the heart is in fact the wicked one. Wicked and deceitful ABOVE ALL THINGS, a heart that no one knows the nature of. Who can indeed know it? Those who turn to the Father, and are divided asunder from it.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

That counterfeit spirit, which is the soul that rules over us, holding us captive, so we receive all this crooked serpents plagues and partake in its sins.

Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Yes, we've put this abomination of desolation, in the place of the spirit where the word of God should be, in that Holy Place of the spirit, and thus the soul continues to deceive all the minds of mankind, blotting out the glory of our spirit.

Daniel 5:20-21 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him: And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will.

Think of it this way, while trying to see the soul as something separate from yourself, a person can suffer from psychosis, hearing voices, which then tell the unwitting mind to go do this and that, causing great harm. A person can dream and suffer the worst kind of nightmare. A person can suffer a horrible experience in life, and the soul recreates that feeling time and time again, reliving some past horrible event. This is receiving the whore of Babylon's plagues, drinking from her cup of abominations. That is what we must come out of, and we can't do that unless we FIRST recognise what we are dealing with. The soul is Satan, and its many devices are used against us ALL.

2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

In fact this soul seems to do anything and everything to keep our mind from peace. Fear, deception and destruction are at the core of everything it does, and the only love it knows is of this world. And look at its fruit, this Earth, and our own experiences here within it.

Galatians 1:4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

A lot of people have even turned to drink and drugs to get some relief from it (Not knowing from what they're trying to escape). Others love the world and themselves, so much so that it is practically impossible to even contemplate anything outside of their subconscious (soul's) range. That is the captivity, subject to the soul's thoughts, imaginations and memories, which it uses against us, to keep us from knowing exactly what this world is.

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

The love of this world of flesh profits no one, and few there be that enter through the straight gate of the spirit.

John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.

It is not an easy path, and it's a narrow path. It cannot be figured out, or intellectualised, since those are functions of the soul, along with memories, which work against a person. But the payoff for one is death (including reincarnation), and the other is the resurrection from dead and to be free of this world forever.

Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

If you desire to stop being an unwitting captive in Satan's world.

2 Timothy 2:25-26 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Keyword, recover. His will being the soul in a man, which is the snare itself, which has come upon ALL of the world unawares.

Luke 21:34-36 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on ALL them that dwell on the face of the WHOLE earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things THAT SHALL COME TO PASS, and to stand before the Son of man.

Come to know the evil that is within us all, and seek FIRST the Father's kingdom and his righteousness to overcome it, so that we too can know, not only what is within ourselves, but what is within ALL other people, so that in the end we too can be like Jesus and the Father and thus being above judging others, and learn forgiveness for ALL down here in the furnace of affliction, understanding in full that people know not what they do.

John 2:25 And needed not that any should testify of man: for he knew what was in man.

So in a shadow of GOOD things to come, and not the very image of, that Key of David. Be like the Jews, who the Lord through Moses released from captivity in Egypt, and brought them out of the iron furnace that is the soul and this world, into their own land, which is Israel, aka a shadow of Heaven, through the Father via Jesus.

Jeremiah 42:12 And I will shew mercies unto you, that he may have mercy upon you, and cause you to return to your own land.

Released from captivity after having been corrected in the flesh, our spirits refined like silver in a furnace.

Isaiah 48:10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
