The Sword of Spirit is the Holy Spirit indwelling man. This is the light that ushers every man into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. John 1: 8-12
However, without the recognition of the ‘Sword of Spirit’, the Word made flesh, Christ Jesus as the identity of every man, woman, and child on earth, damnation ensues. This has been the cause of every discord in human experience
So this moment the question that might arise, “how do we take it to our daily living”; how do we lift up the Sword of Spirit; how do we recognize Christ Jesus in man”? To lift the ‘Sword of Spirit' in a battle against every mortal form that confronts you, is to acknowledge consciously without quivering that Christ Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, to the exclusion of every mortal form. It is the steady acknowledgement that Spirit is All, that besides the Holy one of Israel there is no other. This truth realized in consciousness is our amour and shield against the darts and arrows of the amorite and midianites army.
Moreover, the darts and arrows may be in the form of a witch raining down curses and divination or even a terrorist shooting and detonating bombs; however, never accept the form; never accept any place that Christ Jesus is not omnipresent; reject with utmost vigor every temptation that denies the Allness of God. Therefore, where the witch or terrorist stands only Christ Jesus the begotten Son of God is there. This truth realized in consciousness, strips off the mortal form allowing Christ full expression and harmony is revealed. The activity of the seeming witch or terrorist dissolves. So when scripture summons, ‘suffer not a witch to live’, Exodus 22:18. We are admonished to lift the Sword of Spirit, the WORD and slaughter any and every appearance of a mortal form, in the sole realization that Christ Jesus is the reality of individual being – my being and your being. To be alive to Christ is to die to the personal me, he, she or it.
Therefore, when Christ Jesus is accepted and acknowledged as the only Presence where any witch or terrorist stands to personal sense, you have suffered the mortal form not to live. The scripture further admonishes, ‘Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath, and behold everyone that is proud, and abase him’, Job 40:11. In other words, take thy rage, the Sword of Spirit, by beholding Christ Jesus in a proud person to abase him, to strip him of mortality; then will the Father confess to you that ‘your own right hand can save you’, Job 40:14; then will the Father remind you that this World is your sole responsibility to overcome, by acknowledging His ALLNESS in all thy ways. As a child of God, you must not bear false witness against your neighbor, by knowing him, her, or it after the flesh. It is your sole responsibility to abase a proud person, be it a terrorist, witch or a robber; to strip off mortality from a person, revealing Christ Jesus the reality of individual being. There is no mortal anywhere, only Spirit, Christ the reality of our being is here, there, everywhere; And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. Colossians 1:17.
Moreover, if the witch appears in form of a vampire, a terrorist or any form of discord in human experience, always confront it with the ‘Sword of Spirit’, by realizing that only Christ Jesus is present. Only the Life of God is present. It is your Life and the Life of the infinite universe. There is no other life. Every belief in mortal life, the false sense of life is non-existent, without the Activity and Law of God to support and maintain. In doing this, harmony is revealed.
Please know that secrecy is our watchword in realizing the Truth of being. Your left hand need not know when your right hand is lending out the treasures of heaven. In other words, do not confront an appearance by shouting or muttering from your lips, “You are the Christ”. Instead, this must be an inner knowing, a realization of Truth in consciousness that Christ Jesus is the substance of all form, and the Father that sees in secret will reward you richly, by stripping off the appearance, revealing Christ Jesus the reality of our being. Therefore, you can preach it but not discuss it. Let the world not know you are living it. Finger on the lips must be your banner as you walk around the world living this Truth that Christ Jesus is the reality of individual being – your being, and my being.
Moreover, the scripture reveals that Christ constitutes individual being. He is in you and He is in me. Therefore, we must look through the appearance, even the witch, vampire or terrorist, and behold Christ in him or her, to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience and acceptance of Christ Jesus. Whatever knowledge that God has given us is for edification, beholding Christ in man, and not destruction, judging after an appearance, sowing to the flesh. To know any person after the flesh is like throwing a spear at that person; it is to pierce Christ Jesus again and again. Holy Spirit through brother Paul cautions, “For though we may appear to walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh for the weapon of our warfare is not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down of strongholds, casting down argument and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God (humanhood), bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ. Do you look at things according to the outward appearance? If anyone is convinced in himself that he is Christ, let him again consider this in himself, that just as he is in Christ, even so we are Christ’s. For even if I should boast somewhat more about our authority, which the Lord gave us for edification and not for destruction, I shall not be ashamed- Corinthians 3:3-5, 7, and 8; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Besides, when you criticize, judge, condemn, or praise any mortal form, you fall short of the Mind that was in Christ Jesus, which is the only goal of existence. The people we encounter in our lives are our mirror, our consciousness made visible. If we see evil in them, we are seeing a reflection of the evil within us; if we behold Christ Jesus in everyone, saint or sinner, then Christ is enthroned in us and as us, and we are suddenly at the right hand of God, sited in Christ Jesus. That was the experience of brother Stephen as the stones of criticism and judgment were hurled at him. If Christ appears (to the consciousness that has opened the door to Christ), we shall see Him as He is.
Herein is revealed the law of transformation by Spirit through brother Paul, “But we all with unveiled faces, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the image from glory to glory, just as by the spirit of the Lord “, 2 Corinthians 3:18. When our faces are unveiled, we behold the Lord of glory, the reality of our being; when we realize the capacity through grace to strip off mortality in a person, by beholding Christ Jesus in them, through the mirror of our consciousness, our soul or heart, and in that degree we are transformed. Always, the veil is mortality, so we are to rip it off with the Sword of Spirit, the Word; we are to unveil it, by realizing Christ Jesus in the seeming appearance. Nevertheless, when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away, 2 Corinthians 3:16. We are to reject mortality in ourselves and our neighbor as we behold them through our consciousness, through the mirror of our soul. In doing this, we are transformed into the image of the Lord from glory to glory.
Moreover, what you are seeing in others is externalized outwardly in yourself; what you do see in others is deeply rooted in yourself. So please see Christ Jesus, the beauty of the perfect universe, and Christ appears where the mortal form seems to be. We do not have any choice but to keep the WORD that the Father gives to the Son – ‘I Am in thee and thou art in Me’, John 17:21. It is an eternal decree to be realized and treasured in our heart! There must be a conscious effort on our part to recognize the Alpha and Omega, Omnipresent Christ in ourselves and in our neighbor.
Always, we are to emulate our brother Stephen (in forgiving seventy times seven) as he realized the Christ of his being, knelt, and cried with a loud voice, “Lord, lay not this sin to their charge, Acts 7:60, when such adversary meets us. To behold Jesus Christ on the throne is to come to that place in consciousness where you behold the everywhereness of Christ Jesus, in the good and the evil person, as well as the good and evil condition, as the stones of death are hauled at us. Therefore, seek that the eyes of your understanding be opened to see Christ Jesus, the reality of individual being where every form appears to be, and your ears to hear the still small voice in the face of every seeming tempest, fire, or earthquake; “It is I, be not afraid”. John 6:20
Please realize your joint heir‐ship with Christ and with every other person in the world. There must be conscious acceptance of every person on earth as a child of God, as the same branch of the Tree of life, regardless of the person’s awareness of this Truth or not, you must always forgive seventy times seven. You must be aware that the last thing your five senses will never admit is the fact that your neighbor is Christ Jesus, that the thief on the cross is Christ Jesus, that the prisoner is the Christ, that the prostitute on the street is Christ Jesus; that even the supposed witch or terrorist is Christ Jesus but veiled to our flesh and blood consciousness. You remember that Christ Jesus is the Alpha and Omega, to the exclusion of any and every mortal form. Therefore, Spirit is All, and not the form. This is to have faith in God, in the Invisible.
Conversely, the adversary presents to us appearances of good also. But do not succumb to them either. There is no good or evil appearance but Christ. Never accept the form. Do not judge after appearance, “henceforth know no man after the flesh”, Corinthians 5:16. This is to sow to Spirit and the fruit thereof, eternal life here and now. The stakes are high, and that is why the Angel of God is bidding us in the eternal now to come up hither, upon the mountain of the Lord, where Christ Jesus dwells, by continuously keeping the Word and living the Truth that God is All.
Our Most Loving Father sees only Christ Jesus; the single eye of Jesus Christ sees only His Presence where human eyes are beholding the prisoner, the thief, the prostitute, the witch, the terrorist, and every other condition or appearance, unlike God. You must be aware that Christ is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and end of creation, Infinite and Omnipresent. The Presence of the Alpha and Omega is the exclusion of every mortal form. Therefore, there cannot be Alpha and Omega and a form coexisting together. You must not judge after appearance but judge righteous judgment, by sowing to the Spirit, by realizing that only God is present; that besides our Most Gracious Father there is no other. Your conscious awareness of the infinite nature of Christ Jesus is your only protection from whatever danger that might occur in human experience. You must accept the Truth that God begat only one Son, Christ Jesus, who is the true identity of every man, woman, and child that ever walked, is walking, and will walk upon the earth. Therefore, instead of sowing to the form; instead of sowing to an appearance, no matter how shattering, luring or pleasing, Christ commands, “Judge righteous judgment.” In other words, ‘know yee no man after the flesh’. Always let our judgment rest in God’s begotten Son, in Spirit. This is the inner meaning of ‘thou shall eat not of the fruit of good and evil.’ Genesis 2:16-17
The conscious awareness of the infinite nature of Christ Jesus is to dwell in the secret place of the Holy One of Israel, thereby abiding under the shadow of the Almighty. Like the eagle, you fly over appearances in the lower realm of mortality, unto the dwelling place of the Holy One of Israel - the Mount of Zion. Your dwelling place is on the mountain of the Lord, which is Christ’s dwelling place, the kingdom of God present here and now. ‘A thousand will fall at thy side and ten thousand at thy right side; it shall not come nigh thee.’
Therefore, no power in the universe can offset the perfection functioning your being forever, except as you sin against the Holy Spirit, by rejecting the gift of God, Christ Jesus, the reality of our being, in yourself and your neighbor; by denying you are a spiritual being, the child of God. Do you see why the gospel must be preached to present every man, woman, and child perfect in Christ Jesus? Do you see why you must be a true witness to the infinite perfection of God present here and now? You must bear witness to the Truth of being that God alone is present – a Jehovah witness who can stand up to any appearance needing no defense, no physical sword, amour or shield, in the sole realization that Christ Jesus is the substance of all forms; who can confront the whole midianites army, without physical sword but with Light of Truth and Trumpet of Spirit, by realizing that the Holy One of Israel is Omnipotent; who can confront the blazing army of pharaoh here and the seeming tempest of the red sea there, in the sole realization that only the Holy One of Israel is present. So as appearances or any condition unlike God rear their heads at you, lift up your spiritual sword and strip off the mortal form, take no thought but be still in the awareness that they cannot happen in Spirit and therefore cannot happen to a child of God, and you are never less. You coexist with Christ in God.
So who is on the Lord’s side, Exodus 32:25-35? Holy Spirit is demanding from us in the eternal now as was the case through Moses to the children of Israelite at Sinai a few centuries ago. Only the Levites gathered themselves together unto him.
27 And he said unto them, thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.
28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men. Not different from what happened when Peter ministered unto the people that… His word pierced their heart and three thousand were converted. Acts 2:41
29 For Moses had said, consecrate yourselves today to the Lord, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day. Exdus32 :27-29
You remember the Levites are the priests of God unto the children of Israel and essentially ensure the restoration of the temple as a house of worship. In other words, their function is to realize that there is a spirit in man, which is the lamp of God; to ensure that the lamp (Christ) in the temple of the living God is on from morning till evening, by realizing Christ Jesus as the reality of individual being; to receive the Word (Christ) of God within and share it without, holding no one in condemnation or criticism, by stripping off mortality in a person, by beholding and acknowledging the light in a person. According to scripture, the roles of the Levites are:
The Lord said to Aaron, “You, your sons and your family are to bear the responsibility for offenses connected with the sanctuary, and you and your sons alone are to bear the responsibility for offenses connected with the priesthood.
2 Bring your fellow Levites from your ancestral tribe to join you and assist you when you and your sons minister before the tent of the covenant law.
3 They are to be responsible to you and are to perform all the duties of the tent, but they must not go near the furnishings of the sanctuary or the altar. Otherwise, both they and you will die.
4 They are to join you and be responsible for the care of the tent of meeting—all the work at the tent—and no one else may come near where you are.
5 “You are to be responsible for the care of the sanctuary and the altar so that my wrath will not fall on the Israelites again.
6 I myself have selected your fellow Levites from among the Israelites as a gift to you, dedicated to the Lord to do the work at the tent of meeting.
7 But only you and your sons may serve as priests in connection with everything at the altar and inside the curtain. I am giving you the service of the priesthood as a gift. Anyone else who comes near the sanctuary is to be put to death.” Numbers 18:1-7
Therefore, as the Levites of the Most High, the scripture instructs us to use the SWORD of Spirit, the WORD to slaughter every appearance of a mortal form, by realizing that only Christ Jesus the reality of individual being is present. As we behold Christ in a person, place or condition, we separate mortality, revealing the WORD of God made flesh – Christ Jesus who is the only Presence there. This kindles a separation in us from the world, in the same way, one literally takes away the alphabet S from SWORD to reveal only the WORD. The sole purpose of the ‘Sword’ is to bring death to edom ('consciousness of ‘flesh and blood’); to bring death to humanhood (the enemy of child of God): the sword of the Lord is bathed with blood, it is covered with fat – the blood of lambs and goats, fat from the kidneys of ram, Isaiah 34:6. The fat is the choicest part of the meat unto God, which represents the WORD of God.
Therefore, Christ Jesus is all that is there where any physical form is. Thus anyone or anything coming close to the sanctuary of the Living God where we stand, we put him, her or it to death, by beholding Christ Jesus in him, her, or it. As the Levites of the Most High and as the pure in heart, our sole function on earth is to behold Christ Jesus the Word of God made flesh in every person, place, or condition, to offer unto the Holy One of Israel an acceptable sacrifice.
Your understanding will improve when you come to the full realization that God is All, that besides God there is no other; that evil of whatever form or nature is impersonal; that the accuser of brethren, the enemy, as seen in the scripture, represents ‘our false mortal self’. The false mortal self unceasingly blasphemes that man is not a spiritual being, that man is not the child of the living God, the Holy One of Israel; that besides God there is something else or somebody here or there. Our false mortal-self attempts at all costs to stop us from living in identity, in the full awareness that I am the Son of God, co-heir with Christ Jesus to all the heavenly riches.
Therefore, please say no to every witness of the false mortal-self, of the evidence of the five senses; say no to everything your eyes see, your ears hear, your body feels, your tongue tastes; no to everything you perceive. The only effort we must make is to prevent the creation of false images in our minds, by accepting that only Christ Jesus the reality of our being is present. An image that you create, any shadow that you cast has no power than the power you gave it. However, you believe it has power. You believe in it and it is your belief that fools you because of the ignorance of the individualization of Spirit. The Holy One of Israel has individualized as man – you and me.
Cast abroad the rage of thy wrath, and behold everyone that is proud, and abase him’, Job 40:11.
