End of Days: Nothing Hidden, Increased Knowledge, Pouring Out of Holy Spirit

We are in the Last Days. If you cannot see this, I am sorry. I will pray for you. If you are a believer, simply seek and you will find. Yeshua promised to his believers that nothing will remain hidden from those who seek (Luke 8:17), that in the Last Days His knowledge to us would be increased (DaniEL 12:4) and that He would pour out His Holy Spirit upon ALL FLESH (Isaiah 44:3, Acts 2:17) Can any of these truths be denied?

I had little deeper understanding of these Scriptures and all others, until the promises made to us began to come true. Those hidden things and mysteries of His Scripture are being revealed, and the Holy Spirit is consuming those who are seeking, resulting in an increase in knowledge that can only be explained as supernatural. It is all around us. It is there for your taking if you want to do the will of GOD.

Some time ago, as I began a fervent effort to learn and understand, I was shown Luke 8:17 (KJV) – “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.”

Before I get into a deeper explanation of that verse, it should be known and understood that the ground work for verse 17 comes from understanding verse 16 (Geneva): “No man when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it under a vessel, neither putteth it under the bed, but setteth it on a candlestick, that they that enter in, may see the light.”

Simple, right? So, what does this mean as it may pertain to things hidden and the mysteries of EL’s Word?

The light of the candle is GOD’s WORD. Psalm 119:105 (Geneva): “Thy word is a lantern unto my feet, and a light unto my paths.” In this context, “word” (H1697) means speech, language, and commandment. GOD’s commandments are a lantern unto my feet (H7272 – to be able to endure and follow) and a light (H216 – an illumination, luminary) to show us the way we should go.

John 1 tells us (Geneva): “In the beginning was that Word, and that Word was with God, and that Word was God.” The “Word” (G3056) means Logos – all things said and done by Christ/GOD. God is the Word and the Word, by association is the light that must be set on a stand for all to see. John 8:12: “I am the light of the world…”

Looking at verse 16 of Luke then, we see that “no man” when he has “lighted a candle” (the Word of GOD), should hide it. This commandment (a lantern unto my feet) means no less than three separate things. When we become a child of GOD (converted, born again), we have the Almighty’s “Light” within us. We need to let that shine. It also means that as we discover GOD’s Word, our light gets brighter and we need to set our lamp to a position for all to see never squelching it or covering it up. And third, men of authority (scribes, Pharisees, lawyers, church leaders, etc.), should never hide GOD’s Scriptures from us for their evil and sinister reasons.

Jeshua sent a grave warning to those who hid His Words and those who have done so since the beginning of our time. Luke 11:52 (KJV): “Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”

Understand what this says. By hiding GOD’s Word, those criminals took away our “key of knowledge.” By their thievery and deceptions, they prevented us from understanding fully His Word and the “mysteries” of his Scriptures. The world leaders are evil and are led by Satan. They have chosen not to “enter in” (experience the fullness of GOD’s Word) but they hindered all those who wanted in.

As all part of GOD’s plan, he promised us that all of His “LIGHT” (WORD) would not remain hidden. Luke 8:16 explains to us, not only the importance of growing our Light within us, but the consequences of “hiding” His Word (Light).

With this better understanding, we can move on to Luke 8:17 (Geneva): “For nothing is secret, that shall not be evident: neither anything hid, that shall not be known, and come to light.” WOW! What a promise. Let’s look closer.

Those things we might believe to be secret will become evident. Consider the “churches” of religion across the world. For millennium they have instructed in what they believed to be truth. Their thought-to-be “truths” have not contained all of GOD’s Word, i.e. those things deliberately hidden by man to keep us from the “keys of knowledge.” To those who have deliberately hidden GOD’s Word, Jeshua says, “Woa to you…”

Won’t these false teachers, yes, those who have wrongly taught false doctrine, be surprised because what they thought they were safe with in keeping secrets, shall become “evident.” Evident (G1212) means manifest, clear and unmistakable. Their sin will become evident (manifest, unmistakable).

“Neither anything hid, that shall not be known, and come to light.” These evil people and those who are misguided, not growing their light in the Light of GOD, will discover and I’m sure they will not be very happy.

We must then continue on to Luke 8:18 for the full measure. Luke 8:18 (Geneva): “Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given: and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which it seemeth that he hath.”

Pay attention to “how ye hear” (G191 – give in the audience of; hear; be reported; understand). The old saying goes, “you are what you eat.” Eat GOD’s Word and hear what the Spirit of Truth has to say. All those that “hath” (eyes to see and ears to hear from the Holy Spirit), to them “shall be given.” Given what? If you have the Holy Spirit and are seeking His Truth, then you will be given MORE of his mysteries, hidden Scriptures, knowledge, understanding through the pouring out of His Spirit, as we are seeing in these, the End of Days.

Further read; to those that do not have GOD’s Spirit dwelling in you, not only will you NOT get more, “…that which it seemeth that he hath,” will be taken away. That’s serious stuff right there. This tells me that you are either all in with Him or you are all out.

I spent about 60 years of my life wondering if there was more to this religious indoctrination. The “keys of knowledge” were hidden and in most cases, kept from me. But, the Scriptures promise that if we seek (Him) we will find. What a promise. NOTHING will be kept secret from those who “hath” the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit abides in those who have been “converted.” We know the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit knows us and hears our voice. We can seek and find.

Acts 2:17 (Geneva): “And it shall be in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh…” There is ONLY one way that we can have access to all those hidden things and the answer to the mysteries that will solve all of our problems and answer all of our questions – through the Holy Spirit. The promise is made that in these, the Last Days, GOD will pour out His Spirit “on all flesh.” This will be your last opportunity to grab hold of everlasting life. For those that “hath” his Spirit will be poured onto and in you. Seek it and you will find. Your spiritual knowledge in Christ will grow and will strengthen and with it your knowledge will be increased.

Daniel 12:4 (Geneva): “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book till the end of the time: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” GOD instructed Daniel not to reveal all that he had seen and written down. He was to leave it until such time as the Almighty EL decided some of his children were ready to read it/ hear it (if you have eyes to see and ears to hear). How do we know it is time? How do we know the end is near? Daniel says, “many shall run to and fro.” Tell me if the world is spinning out of control with many “running to and fro” not knowing right from wrong. If you do not see this, you are in trouble. Get it right, I pray.

But we are not to worry. Daniel also promises “knowledge shall be increased.” This increased knowledge and pouring out of His Spirit is important in the Last Days. It is the only way we will be able to stay on course and endure to the end.

Isaiah 44:4 (Geneva): “For I will pour water upon the thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thy buds.”

Are you thirsty? I know there is a lot of “dry ground.” His floods are upon us. Quench your thirst. Receive the pouring out of His Spirit. Accept the blessing from Him upon thy buds.

All power and praise to the Almighty EL.

A Man Clothed in Fine Garments

From the Gospel of Thomas, verse 78: “Jesus said, “Why have you come out into the desert? To see a reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in fine garments like your kings and your great men? Upon them are the fine garments, and they are unable to discern the truth.”

Let’s examine this verse as it would pertain in this post-normal, strongly Satanic-influenced world/society.

Jesus asked, “Why have you come out into the desert?” What is the desert in this spiritual context? The desert is generally a waterless place, void of life, i.e. a place lacking the true spiritual knowledge of the Word of God.

Jesus wanted to know if they (you/anyone) came to “see a reed shaken by the wind?” Why would there be a reed in the desert? Maybe this “reed” is “dressed in fine garments,” disguised. A reed is something that is most often found in water (Word of God). It might appear that you are trying to find something in the wrong place. Water is not in the desert.

Let’s look closer at what a reed is. A reed, one generally found where there is water, in ancient Egypt, these areas where reeds grew in the water were called a “bulrush” or “bullrush.” There are different species of reeds, but in Egypt the most common reed, from the bullrushes, were identified as the source of papyrus – according to Etymology Online: “…bullrush, popular name for tall rush-like plants growing in or near water (in Biblical use, the Egyptian papyrus).”

We know that papyrus was used in ancient times for paper, scrolls, to write things on. It is actually where the term “bible” comes from: Greek, biblion (paper, scroll).

It then appears that what Jesus is asking is if you are looking for the Word of God (Bible, Canon, i.e. reed), where there is no water (Word of God). But also, Jesus describes the “reed” as “shaken by the wind.” If this “reed” is the canonical (readily accepted scriptures by order of church leaders, Scribes, Pharisees, lawyers,) Scriptures, it is “shaken” by the wind of the Logos (God’s complete word/doctrine).

Evidently, the seekers came to the desert to find their (man-gods) kings and great men, who are all in collusion to bastardize the Word of God and to hide Truth from and deny as many as they can. These kings and great men are described as wearing “fine garments,” i.e. well disguised in what they do but incapable of knowing the real Truth.

And yet, we insist in turning our hopes to these corrupt kings and great men wandering the the desert, being shaken by the Almighty EL.

Seek (the complete Son of God) and you will find. He won’t be in the desert.

Revelation of Peter

Last night I was reading a remarkable work of Scripture from the Nag Hammadi Scriptures – The Revised and Updated Translation of Sacred Gnostic Texts. From Codex VII comes The Revelation of Peter, a most precise writing because the words come directly from Christ.

I would like to provide some of the highlights, which is difficult to do because the entire piece is a highlight. Note: Any emboldening is mine.

Jesus Christ, the Savior, and Peter were sitting in the Temple. Jesus said to Peter, “Blessed are those who belong to the Father, for they are above the heavens. It is he who through me revealed life to people from life. I reminded those built on what is strong that they should listen to my teaching and learn to tell the difference between words of unrighteousness or lawlessness and words of righteousness, which come from the height of every word from the fullness of truth. These people have been enlightened in good pleasure by him whom the principalities sought but did not find, nor was he proclaimed among any of the generations of the prophets; now I have appeared among these people as the Son of Humanity, exalted above the heavens, among a huge number of people of the same nature.”

Jesus and Peter are threatened by people coming at them with stones. Jesus reminds Peter that these people are blind and have no leader. He tells him if he wants to know what it’s like, to put his hands over his eyes and ears. At that moment Peter is blessed with the real knowledge of the Savior and because of that he understands that while he hears the voices of the priests and the scholars “praising you as you are sitting here,” he is, once again, reminded by the Savior that these people are blind and deaf. Peter is then told to, “Listen to the things I am telling you in secret and keep them. Do not tell them to the children of this age. For they will denounce you during these ages, since they are ignorant of you, but they will praise you when there is knowledge.”

Even though many will hear the Word of God and follow it, they will revert back to their “error,” as the Savior called it. Jesus tells Peter, “Those who have associated with people of error will become their prisoners, since they are without perception. But the good person, who is pure and upright, will be handed over to the dealer in death, in a kingdom of those who praise a Christ of a future restored world. And they also praise people who preach this falsehood, people who will come after you. They will hold on to the name of a dead man, thinking that in this way they will become pure, but instead they will become more and more defiled. They will fall into a name of error and into the hand of an evil deceiver with complicated doctrines, and they will be dominated with heresy.

“Some of them will blaspheme the truth and proclaim evil teachings, and they will speak evil against each other. Some of them will give themselves a name, for they stand in the power of the rulers: the name of a man and a naked woman of many forms and many sufferings. And those who say all this will inquire into dreams, and if they claim that a dream came from a demon, which is appropriate for their error, they shall be granted perdition instead of incorruption.”

“Evil cannot produce good fruit. Everything, wherever it comes from, produces what is like it. Not every soul is of the truth, nor of immortality. In our opinion, every soul of these present times is assigned to death and is always enslaved, since the soul is created for its own desires. These souls are destined for eternal destruction, in which they are and from which they are, for they love the creatures of matter that came into being with them.

“But immortal souls are not like these, Peter. Still, as long as the hour has not yet come, an immortal soul resembles mortal souls. It will not reveal its true nature: it alone is immortal and contemplates immortality, and has faith, and has desire to renounce these mortal souls.

“People do not gather figs from thistles or thorns, if they are wise, nor grapes from thornbushes. Something always stays in that state in which it exists. If something is in a bad state, that becomes destruction and death for the soul. But the soul abides in the eternal one, the source of life and immortality of life that these resemble.

“All that does not really exist will dissolve into nothingness, and those who are deaf and blind associate only with people like them.”

“Others will wander from evil words and mysteries that lead people astray. some who do not understand the mysteries and speak of what they do not understand will boast that the mystery of truth is theirs alone. In arrogance they will embrace pride and will envy the immortal soul that has been used as down payment. For every authority, principality, and power of the ages wants to be with the immortal souls that do exist. The powers have not been saved or shown the way by them, though they always have wished to become imperishable. For if an immortal soul is empowered by a spirit of thought, at once it is joined by one of those who were led astray.

Many others, who oppose truth and are messengers of error will ordain their error and their law against my pure thoughts. Since they see from one perspective only, they think good and evil come from the same source. They do business in my word. And they will establish harsh fate in which the generation of immortal souls will run in vain, until my return…”

Some will create a mere imitation of the remnant in the name of a dead man, who is Hermas, the firstborn of unrighteousness, in order that the little ones [True Believers] may not believe in the light that is. These are the workers who will be cast into the outer darkness, away from the children of light….”

“Still others among them endure suffering and think they will perfect the wisdom of the brotherhood that really exists, the spiritual fellowship with those united in communion, through which the wedding of incorruptibility will be revealed. Instead, what will appear is a mere imitation, the kindred generation of the sisterhood. These people oppress their brothers and say to them, ‘Through this fellowship our God has mercy, since salvation comes to us alone through this.’ They do not know the punishment of those who rejoice at what was done to the little ones, those who watched when the little ones were taken captive.

“And there are others among those outside our number who call themselves bishops and deacons, as if they have received authority from God, but they bow before the judgment of the leaders. These people are dry canals.”

Those who have ears to hear, let them hear.

Words and Names

From the Nag Hammadi Scriptures, the Gospel of Philip, 53,23-54,5:

“The names of worldly things are utterly deceptive, for they turn the heart from what is real to what is unreal. Whoever hears the word “god” thinks not of what is real, but rather of what is unreal. So also with the words, “father,” “son,” “holy spirit,” “life,” “light,” “resurrection,” “church,” and all the rest, people do not think of what is real but of what is unreal, though the words refer to what is real. The words that are heard belong to this world. Do not be deceived. If words belonged to the eternal realm, they would never be pronounced in this world, nor would they designate worldly things. They would refer to what is in the eternal realm.”

Come Out of Her My People

From the Gospel of Thomas, Verse 21: “Mary said to Jesus, “Whom are your disciples like?”
He said, “They are like children who have settled in a field which is not theirs. When the owners of the field come, they will say, ‘Let us have back our field.’ They will undress in their presence in order to let them have
back their field and to give it back to them. Therefore I say to you, if the
owner of a house knows that the thief is coming, he will begin his vigil
before he comes and will not let him dig through into his house of his
domain to carry away his goods. You, then, be on your guard against the
World. Arm yourselves with great strength lest the robbers find a way to
come to you, for the difficulty which you expect will surely materialize.
Let there be among you a man of understanding. When the grain ripened,
he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has
ears to hear, let him hear.”

As has been interpreted by one how has ears to hear: “Mary (The age, who cannot touch him until his higher-level is revealed) said to Jesus, whom are your disciples like? He said, They are like children (The Elect) who have settled in a field which is not theirs (The world). When the owners of the field come (Jews and Christians; the buyers and merchants), they will say, ‘let us have back our field.’ (Religion; excommunicate the Elect within them) they (will) undress in their presence–(That is, they remove their religious clothing, or affiliations) in order to let them have back their field (Christianity, Judaism) and give it back to them (See Revelation 18:4* come out of her, my people…). Therefore I say to you, if the owner (The Father) of a house (of Israel) knows that the thief (Satan) is coming (To steal God’s Word and hide the keys of knowledge–verse 39**; Luke 11:52***; Luke 11:52), he will begin his vigil before he comes (By revealing his plan to the Elect of the Early Church) and will not let him into his house of his domain (The true Church) to carry away his goods (Scriptures, keys, and mysteries). You,(Disciples) then, be on your guard against the world (Which has taken over the religious institutions). Arm yourselves with great strength (The couching of the upper in the lower) lest the robbers (of God’s Word) find a way to come to you (and steal the keys and hide the upper meaning; but its image remains safely preserved and couched in the lower), for the difficulty which you expect (The loss of the upper-level meaning) will (surely) materialize (The mystery is to be subverted and lost for 2,000 years). Let there be among you a man of understanding (To restore it). When the grain ripened (Fell on tilled soil and produced 120-fold), he came quickly with his sickle in his hand and reaped it. Whoever has ears to hear (Like the man of understanding), let him hear.
