The Mystery of Iniquity

Seventh Thunder July 14, 2018

People love to judge others, in the courts, on social media in general, and especially in comments sections of newspaper websites. People cannot help themselves, all the while unwittingly condemning themselves to what they know not.

Genesis 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

Because what people don't know, is that this world is the prison we have been condemned to, the actual place of judgement, and what blocks us all from understanding that, is the flaming sword, which blocks the way the tree of life.

Matthew 26:52 Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword.

The knowledge of this world, and our own thoughts and feelings are that flaming sword. We live by them and we all die from them.

Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

It's a harsh teaching, but people have to watch what they say, whether in person or anonymously. Unfortunately, without having the Father's righteousness in you, that good treasure from heaven, you will continue to sin using that bad treasure which is of this world.

Matthew 12:35-37 A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

Illness, disease and suffering all exist for a reason, and we're all on this Earth because of our own unrighteousness, and the more unrighteousness that one has in their hearts influencing them, the further away they are from understanding these things, because of whole point of the gospel of the kingdom is to break the hold the soul in a man has on the spirit, so that we may attain peace and life.

Luke 2:35 (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

Since the soul is the wicked one, and the gospel of truth reveals what it is in us that works unrighteousness.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

We believe we're sheep, and yet we're ravening wolves, and we talk a good game, and yet the same evil is still in our hearts ruling us, and even worse trying to rule and control other people. We can't see those armies that compass our spirit, because we have already been recruited by our own hearts and serve its cause, since we believe they're what makes us who we are.

Luke 21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

Those armies which compass Jerusalem's bows will be broken by the very knowledge of the fact that we're a spirit, which is a parable of Jerusalem.

Isaiah 62:6-7 I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the Lord, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.

As the Father renews our mind, our spirits, Jerusalem will fortify it walls and set up defences, so that there is a watch all over the city, resisting all those enemies of our heart, those wicked thoughts and imaginations which compass our spirits about.

Psalm 37:14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

They'll be left desolate because we will be able to see their invasion and resist them, in the spirit.

Luke 21:19 In your patience possess ye your souls.

This is the persecution of our own hearts, the tribulations we must all face as we begin the battle to possess our own souls and once again have our spirit in charge, so that those wicked thoughts and intentions of the heart no longer dominate our minds.

Psalm 37:15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

Once the true nature of our souls are revealed, our spirit can take steps to overcome its iniquities, and as said below, they're a mystery.

2 Thessalonians 2:6-14  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Everybody wants to have an opinion on something, especially when it concerns matters that don’t concern themselves. They sit at their screens criticising other races, cultures, crimes or appearances. In their own mind they're superior, and yet they know nothing about the world and how it operates. Somehow people forget the real reason they're same planet as rapists, murderers, warmongers, thieves and liars. Do not be fooled by the wisdom of this world, we all have hearts and we all draw out bad treasure from it, suffering from the consequences of the iniquity within us, and in our blindness, not knowing this mystery of iniquity at work in the world, we're all causing others to suffer along the way.

Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

They're no exceptions to this. All who haven't receive revelations and had their mind renewed in righteousness by the Father are evil, a term which is much more broader than most will care to admit, lest it would expose their own evil.

Matthew 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Keep this in mind, someone had to be sent into this world to teach all people about their own evil and the goodness of God. So clearly being good in mind, body and soul isn't as easy as people like to believe. To expound on that, the Father has to gift all people that spirit of goodness which is from Heaven.

Matthew 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Believing in God is not seeking God, and believing in the name of Jesus alone won't help anyone. In fact, since belief is of the heart it will condemn you, and you will be deceived by the hearts of others along the way.

1 John 3:20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.

The Gospel of the Kingdom isn't about thinking good things, it is about transforming your spirit into the good thing. So with the spirit that needs to be transformed, DO as Jesus said to do, and seek God first.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

People do not do that, and instead they think reading or hearing the words in the Bible is the knowledge of the kingdom being added to them, they think their beliefs about God and Jesus makes them righteous. They're those that see and cannot see, and those that hear and cannot hear.

Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

You can't understand a foreign language unless you learn it first, and the language Jesus spoke of is 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.

Unfortunately, people knowing only the flesh will only know and understand the words of the flesh. They read Jerusalem and think of the place called Jerusalem, not hearing that Jerusalem is a parable and similitude of the spirit, by not the very image of what it speaks. The shadow of good things to come.

John 8:43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.

Which why we have so many silly physical rituals, holidays, traditions, doctrines, buildings of worship and obsessions of places that come from all religions.

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

We need to learn to read the scriptures with the spirit, so that the words of the Bible are made plain. Meaning that what we read are no longer parables and similitude's, but are plain upon the tables so that people may run with it.

Habakkuk 2:2 And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

In short, the Bible needs to be unsealed so that we can truly understand the words in them spiritually.

1 Corinthians 2:13-15 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. 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 he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.

So Jesus came to teach people about the new way of the spirit, and about the Father, whose spirit within us all is the sword of truth which cuts open those seals so that we maybe instructed in the ways of his righteousness.

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.)

Righteousness which the Father gifts us, righteousness which purifies our hearts and most importantly makes our spirit clean.

Isaiah 35:8-10 And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

We cannot do this alone, nor can any man teach righteousness. But the way to it, like Jesus demonstrated can be given to man. Fools will not walk on that way though, and the fools are those who love their own wisdom, like King Solomon, who twice turned away from his God.

Isaiah 29:11-14 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

And it is the devices of a man's heart that deceives him and blinds him to the knowledge of the spirit. It is the very things that people think, imagine and believe which takes them down.

Psalm 10:2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined.

And those devices belong to Satan, the adversary whom all serve unwittingly.

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

An adversary so crafty and cunning, above all other beasts of the field, that in its craftiness has made all people, especially the religious believe he is outside of them, and to the none religious, have them not believe in him at all. To be frank, whatever you believe in, he wants you to believe, you are his, and are in his prison, his world.

Matthew 5:25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

The adversary is Satan, learn of him so you are not ignorant of his devices. Imagination being one of them, thoughts, and pride being just a few of the others.

Matthew 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

The judge is the soul itself, which people use to judge with. All of the contents of the heart of man.

Matthew 5:26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

So as said above, since we're ignorant of the heart of man, the mystery of iniquity is already at work within us all.

Job 9:24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

He is within, who he is, is Satan.

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