BUILDING A POWERHOUSE FOR THE LORD PART TWO
SEPARATION / HOLINESS
The age to come, the victorious church, the restoration of man and all creation is very real. Positionally God made this promise available to us through the resurrected anointed one, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The word Christ means anointed. We know that oil in the Bible is symbolic of the anointing. In fact the word anoint in the Strongs Concordance is 4886 meaning "to rub with oil". Through Christ's resurrection from death, He is now not only the anointed one, but He is the miracle oil, the oil or anointing that breaks the yoke of Satan and is victorious over death, hell and the grave. He is the Word, the Truth, the light of Israel. He is the life force, the power, the energy, that ignites us and gives us the light to see eye to eye with God and enables us to speak the same language. He is in us, as all the above, causing us to change, causing us to become more like Him and preparing us by filling us with His anointing or the miracle oil for the final victory. We will be as the five virgins that were prepared to go in to the Bridegroom in the parable of the ten virgins. There must be unity however and there must be love.
To be able to enter the eighth day we must truly be as one, a whole complete body without cracks of division that would allow this precious oil to escape. We must be holy as He is holy. Core people hear me. If we touch what is unclean we become unclean. If we touch what is not born again, we become as one touching the dead. Remember, those not properly baptized are spiritually dead as well as those that were baptized, but remain, or return, to the things of the world.
Let us read Haggai 2:12-14
12 "if one carries holy meat in the fold of his garment, and with the edge he touches bread or stew, wine or oil, or any food, will it become holy?" "Then the priests answered and said, "No." (Even if you are holy you cannot make an unclean thing or person holy by touching it).
13 And Haggai said, "If one who is unclean because of a dead body touches any of these, will it be unclean?" So the priests answered and said, "It shall be unclean. (The unclean can touch something and make it as unclean as them.)
14 Then Haggai answered and said, "So is this people, and so is this nation before Me, says the LORD, and so is every work of their hands; and what they offer there is unclean.
Isaiah 52:11 says:
11 Depart! Depart! Go out from there, Touch no unclean thing; Go out from the midst of her, Be clean, You who bear the vessels of the LORD. (This was instruction given to old Israel who carried vessels of oil, now we are the vessels that not only carry the oil, but the Creator of it! How much more does this scripture to be clean apply to us!)
2 Corinthians 6:14
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? (All that are born into Adam are lawless. They need to be taught to be different and born over to not be cursed.)
In fact, unbelievers are not just those that are not baptized in the name of Jesus, but also those also that do not believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit with evidence of tongues. Then there are those that do not believe in God's government comprised of the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. The Word tells us they are in darkness and lawless when they refuse to receive the Holy Spirit or see and be covered by God's government.
2 Corinthians 6:17-18
17 Therefore "Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you. (Adam's whole race of people fit this unclean category and so does their religious system!)
18 "I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the LORD Almighty." (If we are separate from them.)
Revelation 18:4 is loud and clear.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, "Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues.
So, the warning is to come out of the religious systems with their false doctrines and immoral standards and separate from her people. Why?
RELIGION ROBS US OF POWER AND VICTORY
We must be a separate people to be a powerful people. We must not touch or be a part of one that is of Babylon which incidentally is comprised of the denominational religious systems, the world's mystery religions, or anything that claims to be Godly but loves the world and still aids the governments of man symbolized in the Bible as the Beast.
God has always warned Israel to not mingle with the people of the land, meaning anyone that is not Israel. We are to be kind and minister truth in case they are one of God's intended sheep that will leave Babylon and set an example for them, but to be involved beyond that is very, very dangerous. Why? Because if you have anything to do with their traditions, holidays, or any of their religious beliefs that are not based on truth, all that is promised to you in the Bible is of no effect. It makes God's promises null and void in your life as well as in the lives of those caught up in it. There is no anointing or approval from the Lord to hold the enemy at bay.
Mark 7:13 tells us:
13 "making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down.And many such things you do."
Again hear what I am warning, if we involve ourselves with the world's religious and their people, we lose our anointing and we are wide open for the enemy to attack. God has warned us over and over in scripture, so people of God, don't be angry at God when things don't work out the way you want them to. We let the enemy in through our own stubbornness and disobedience. Through lawlessness we create our own defeat.
SAMSON SET AN EXAMPLE
Read how Samson insisted on relationships with those who were not a part of Israel. It ended up blinding him and finally costing him his very life! We can oppose religion, expose religion for what it really is and try to lead people out of it, but we must never hold hands with religious ones so to speak until they do actually come out. Religion will blind us so that the truth does not make sense. Like Samson, we will lose our power, anointing, the call on our lives, and eventually end up dying spiritually. Samson's parents even tried to stop him from self destruction.
3 Then his father and mother said to him, "Is there no woman among the daughters of your brethren, or among all my people, that you must go and get a wife from the uncircumcised Philistines?" And Samson said to his father, "Get her for me, for she pleases me well." (Back in those days the parents arranged the marriage contracts.)
Judges 16:1 shows us another time Samson involved himself with foreign women.
1 Now Samson went to Gaza and saw a harlot there, and went in to her.
In Judges 16:4 we see him marrying for the second time and again he chose a woman that was no part of Israel.
4 Afterward it happened thathe loved a woman in the Valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah
She was a Midianite. Intermarriage between Israel and outsiders incurred God's wrath even in Moses' era, and a plague was brought on all Israel.
6 And indeed, one of the children of Israel came and presented to his brethren a Midianite woman in the sight of Moses and in the sight of all the congregation of the children of Israel, who were weeping at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. (They wept because so many of their people were dying. It became very apparent why the plague was upon the body. It was because of Israel's involvement with foreign women and their pagan religion).
7 Now when Phinehas the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it (the relationship), he rose from among the congregation and took a javelin in his hand
8 and he went after the man of Israel into the tent and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her body. So the plague was stopped among the children of Israel.
9 And those who died in the plague were twenty-four thousand. (God is the same God. He hasn't changed His mind a bit! But let us get back to Samson).
You see, Samson's great power was associated with his separation to God as a Nazirite priest as symbolized by his unshaven head and beard.
Judges 16:16-17 begins to show us how he would see calamity and misfortune, and finally defeat because of his disobedience.
16 And it came to pass, when she pestered him daily with her words and pressed him, so that his soul was vexed to death,
17 that he told her all his heart (he confided in her), and said to her, "No razor has ever come upon my head, for I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother's womb. If I am shaven, then my strength will leave me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man." (As he lost his natural covering, he also lost his spiritual covering symbolized by his long hair and beard).
When his Midianite wife had him shaved by the Philistines he lost his power, and the enemy took him captive and blinded him. They actually put his eyes, bound him up in chains and made him work for them (He was to work only for the Lord).
Judges 16:19-21 tells us how she accomplished this.
19 Then she lulled him to sleep on her knees, and called for a man and had him shave off the seven locks of his head. Then she began to torment him, and his strength left him (the covering of God was gone).
20 And she said, "The Philistines are upon you, Samson!" So he awoke from his sleep, and said, "I will go out as before, at other times, and shake myself free!" But he did not know that the LORD had departed from him (how sad,God turned away from him and he never even knew it. Now the devil moves swiftly in on him through these people).
21 Then the Philistines took him and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza. They bound him with bronze fetters, and he became a grinder in the prison.
He finally paid them back in the end, but he lost his life doing it. Samson is dead as are all the people from that era, but the spirits that operated through them are alive and well today. Those that refuse to separate and walk obedient to their call are just as easy a target as was Samson. The unbelievers today are also ready and available to allow the enemy to manifest through them to destroy those they befriend. All that happened to Samson will happen to the rogues of this age as well!
Judges 16:29-30 relays Samson's final revenge.
29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars which supported the temple, and he braced himself against them, one on his right and the other on his left.
30 Then Samson said, "Let me die with the Philistines!" And he pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead (those that are not Israel remember are as dead to God) that he killed at his death were more than he had killed in his life. (Samson learned his lesson too late. Many, it's sad to say, are about to experience the same lesson in this age).
SAMSON MARCHED TO HIS OWN DRUM
Samson was not in unity with the rest of the priesthood, nor did he see eye to eye with God. He was a proud man that thought he could mingle with the enemy and not be misled. He became unclean because of touching the dead however, and the Spirit of God left him because of his disobedience to the vow of priesthood and the law of separation. This should be a warning today, especially those called to priesthood. It is a fact that God's people are scattered through the nations and yes we are to reach out to them and minister the gospel. But, before you really let any kind of friendship develop, make sure they have an interest in the Kingdom and that they will abide by God's command to come out of Babylon. If they don't, they will remain spiritually blind and never understand truth, and you will be unevenly yoked! You like Samson will be touching the dead and end up with much of what he experienced. You will feel the hand of God draw back from you as He won't touch what is unclean. The anointing leaves and you will begin to feel very dry and distanced from God. The miracle oil will have slipped away through the cracks and you will be no part of the end time promise. The enemy will have his way with you.
So for the power and authority of God to flow that can stop the attack of the enemy in our lives, we must help tear down Satan's house (the body of Satan) and separate from his people and their religions. Israel must speak the same language of truth and see eye to eye with the Lord as well as with each other. We must band together all the more so as the day draws near and serve Him in one accord allowing heaven and earth to be in harmony once again. Satan struggles and fights to collect as many as possible to his side and he doesn't care how he goes about it. He plays dirty, he has no rules. He is the lead law less one. When we break God's laws we are on Satan's side whether we mean to be or not. Jesus on the other hand is the law. He is the Torah and it is Christ in us that is our hope of glory. So let us be obedient ones that hear His voice. Instead of becoming the lawless let us like Him become the law. Let us be vessels of honor, separated, prepared, filled with the eighth day miracle oil, and united to form the body of Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:7 says:
7 But we have this treasure (Jesus) in earthen vessels (us), that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
Let us, as the united body of Christ, become one big powerhouse, the House of God. Let us shine the way for the remnant to come from Christianity to the age of the Church Eternal, the Church Triumphant. Let the weak and dying in Babylon see this great light so they can pull themselves out and find the way into God's Kingdom.
Children of God, we have been given promises from God Almighty that belong to us as we are Abraham's seed. Promises of restoration, provision, joy and peace, life eternal. Promises of no more death and dying, not only for us, but all creation. Isn't it worth giving it our best effort to become vessels of silver and gold that can pour miracle oil over all that Satan tries to do? We could break his yoke of evil completely off of this planet. That anointing could stop sickness in its tracks, stop hunger and lack that is so prevalent in other countries. This miracle oil could make the whole earth a sweet aroma to God and the people on it His treasures. We could become His perfect, healthy, happy, eternal jewels, His family. People, animals, along with all creation, are still paying the price for what Adam and Eve did in the garden so long ago. But, as I stated earlier, Jesus through His death paid the price for all our sin that was required by spiritual law. Through His resurrection from death. He defeated both hell and the grave. He was the total victor over all the power of the enemy. Now it is up to humanity to receive that gift of power and authority that He passed on to us, and walk in the holiness and separation it requires by spiritual law to manifest that total victory to this realm. It was all planned for before the earth was formed. Let us come together as the body of Christ to become that Lighthouse, that source of authority and Power that restores all things, renews all things. creating a new heaven and a new earth.
