A Most Mysterious Temple

The Greatest Secret

THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST

Part Thirteen

This is from my book “MYSTERY OF CHRIST”

I would hope that everyone would attempt to totally disprove what is written here. Show where Christ refutes it all, or He did not say it, or that He did not mean it. Not by your “theology”, or your “bias” or your “opinion” but rather by hard Scriptural statements. You eternal salvation depends upon it…

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 distance between CONVERSION and REGENERATION is known as the strait gate and narrow way. It is in reality the distance between your conscious mind and your Holy of Holies.Regeneration can only occur in the Holy of Holies of that individual.

The people worship Christ with their mouth or we could say they speak with their conscious mind which controls the mouth, but their INNER HIDDEN HEART is far, far away. They do not even know it is there because they refused to ENTER IN to find out.

The strait gate and narrow way expose this INNER PERSON to the conscious mind. Remember when Paul said, “We know we have been crucified with Christ”? It is fully experiential. You will know you are dying within while very much alive without. That is why Jesus commanded you to PICK UP YOUR CROSS. He was commanding you to walk the narrow way to this most mysterious DEATH.

So then, what has all of this got to do with the narrow way? The strait gate and the narrow way are the JOURNEY THAT ONE MUST UNDERTAKE THAT takes you from your conscious mind, all the way through the subconscious mind and RIGHT INTO YOUR HOLY OF HOLIES. It cannot be done by you alone; it must be done by GOD THE FATHER AND THE HOLY SPIRIT. It will not be done unless there is proper response to the call of God.

Matt 22:14

14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

So here we have another sharp division, MANY are called, but FEW are chosen. How is this possible? There are millions of Christians in all sorts of denominations.

These are the MANY. Now out of this group known as THE CHURCH, are two categories: OVERCOMERS and NON-OVERCOMERS. Look it up for yourself in Revelation Chapters Two and Three, where Christ wrote short letters to each of the seven Churches. In each case, you will find a reference to OVERCOMERS and NON-OVERCOMERS.

Now if you look up the word OVERCOMETH, you find that it means TO HAVE FOUGHT A HORRIFIC BATTLE WITH AN ADVERSARY AND TO HAVE WON THAT BATTLE. Now compare that to the word STRAIT and then NARROW. Do you see? This is not some easy say a simple prayer to get saved CONCEPT, this is a major battle with an adversary who is named SATAN, and HE REALLY IS THE GOD OF THIS WORLD.

Most people do not realize that there is a powerful attraction to this world, and the things of this world that is broken only by entering in and continuing until one find Christ. It is a battle against this strong spiritual attraction one has to this life, this world.

The MANY are the non-overcomers. THE FEW did as they were told to do, and they entered into the strait gate and walked the narrow way. They did in fact battle Satan all the way in. Satan owns you, and he has no intention of letting you go. He will do whatever it takes to keep you in his grasp – and that is why, when one really begins to study their Bibles, Satan will attack. He will attack you with your brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, relatives, anyone and anything to keep you from “continuing” in the doctrines of Christ. I call it “NEGATIVE CONFIRMATION.” When you are attacked in this manner, it appears to come out of people and friends for no reason. It is all negative and usually very hurtful.

Most people, when this opposition and persecution comes, will then drop it, and never go back. They will not continue in, abide in, or remain in the doctrine of Christ to FIND THE TRUTH THAT SETS THEM FREE.

I believe that the Tabernacle/Temple construct tell us that this huge battleground of “who owns who” is found in the INNER COURT. It is totally dark in there except for the LIGHT OF GOD. This is why no human being can get out of Satan’s grasp without the HELP OF GOD HIMSELF.

God is greater than Satan, and the Holy Spirit is greater than Satan. But make no mistake, Satan is a dangerous, mega intelligent adversary who wants to take you to ruin with him, if for no other reason than SPITE, because he hates THE HOLY TRINITY. He will use every trick in the book to keep his ownership of you. One of his favorite tricks is FALSE DOCTRINE.

We get letters from people all of the time that tell us that Paul, for example was an imposter, a liar, a deceiver. Also, Peter for that matter. Then of course there are those who claim that Jesus is the ANTICHRIST. On and on it goes. They are blown about by every wind of doctrine.

 They rip the Bible apart because it does not agree with their preconceived concepts, biases, prejudices and “isms.” If Paul, for example, goes against their theological bias, then he must have been some imposter, an antichrist.

These are they that will NEVER come to the light of the truth because they cannot come to Christ as a babe, but rather consider themselves “wise and prudent,” that is, “theological experts.”

This is how Satan gets into a mind, develops a mindset within that person, and that person is a literal and real PRISONER OF SATAN but it not aware of it. To break that hold, they must do what Nicodemus finally did – understand that they know NOTHING OF SPIRITUAL THINGS, HUMBLE THEMSELVES and come to Christ as a child. Few are able to do it. We know that because FEW ARE ACTUALLY SAVED.

This is why Jesus said He came to set the captives free, to unlock the prison doors. He told you how to do it – remain in His doctrines, labor for the meat that leads to eternal life. ASK, SEEK, KNOCK, AND STRIVE, to fight the good fight of faith and become an OVERCOMER.

He was referring to the STRAIT GATE and NARROW WAY. He was referring to COMING TO THE LIGHT to have your deeds reproved. He was referring to the BATTLE you will have with Satan.

Remember Satan took Christ up upon a high mountain and showed Him the kingdoms of the world. Christ did not tell Satan he was lying, that he did not own them! Satan does in fact own THIS WORLD. He owns it by LEASEHOLD. Jesus knew that. That means that Satan is STILL in control over the minds of men. This is why John tells us this:

1 John 5:4

4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

This battle that has to be fought is so important that Christ refers to it, as we have said, in every letter to the seven Churches. He refers to is by using the word OVERCOMETH, AND HERE IS THAT DEFINITION:

TO SUBDUE, TO CONQUER, TO OVERCOME, TO PREVAIL TO GET THE VICTORY.”

It means that you are in a fight, and it is a real fight, and you must continue, abide in it, and eventually you will PREVAIL.

You have two major adversaries, Satan and your hidden inner secret heart of hearts. Both are antichrist. Both hate Christ with a real passion. That is why mankind invents all of these “religions.” It is Satan’s way of DIVERSION so that this real battle for the soul does not take place. If he can keep people from understanding what the real battle is, then he has won by default. This is an inner soul/spirit battle with your jail keeper.

This is not a minor skirmish, it is a major battle, a real war. That is why Jesus said that no one could come to Him except the Father drag him. This why Paul said, “who can be against us if God be for us?” God is GREATER than Satan. The Holy Ghost is GREATER than Satan. Christ won that victory at the cross and made an open spectacle of the adversary. Satan gets his ground because we give it to him, because we will not take the power Christ has given to us to OVERCOME SATAN and his DEMONS. Now let’s get back to the tabernacle/temple:

In the HOLY OF HOLIES was the very presence of God. This LIGHT hovered over the ARK OF THE COVENANT. Inside the Ark were three items of extreme importance, all of which play a major role in TRUE SALVATION.

1.      The 10 commandments – rebirth puts them into the heart. Rebirth brings LIFE.

2.      Aaron’s rod that budded – from death to LIFE.

3.      Manna – The hidden symbol of DIVINE AGAPE as is “water” in many places.

Do you see now what this is really all about? When one literally encounters JESUS CHRIST in an esoteric and Gnostic encounter and accepts His offer of salvation, what happens?

1.      The LAWS OF GOD ARE PLACED WITHIN THE HUMAN HEART, the LAW OF DIVINE AGAPE, which is really what the 10 commandments are all about anyway!!

2.      Aaron’s Rod that budded – something DEAD that came ALIVE. What did Jesus say? The true believer passes from DEATH unto LIFE.

3.      Manna – the LOVE OF GOD that flows from the believer to a lost and dying world.

Do you see how the Shekinah Glory represents the LIGHT OF CHRIST? Did not Jesus Christ command us to COME TO THE LIGHT TO HAVE OUR DEEDS REPROVED? The way we come to the light is via the strait gate and narrow way. And did He not say that the many would not because they loved their SPIRITUAL DARKNESS and would not come to the LIGHT OF DIVINE LOVE?  If you COME TO THE LIGHT, have you not had an experiential encounter? Would you not KNOW IT?

Rev 2:17

17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Of course, once again this is extremely Gnostic and esoteric, because only the ones given the hidden manna and the white stones know about it, and we know that only THE FEW obtain unto this. In order for all of this to happen, does not one have to actually ENCOUNTER CHRIST? Does not one have TO SEE? And how can they see and understand if there is no MANIFESTATION OF CHRIST? How can they even know what the NEW COVENANT REALLY IS unless it is shown them?

The fallen human race was given a choice. They can remain in the world and perish along with it, or they can reconcile themselves BACK TO GOD through Christ, the ONLY mediator and savior ever given.

 There is no other name under the heavens by which anyone can be saved. They must enter in at the strait gate,and walk the narrow way unto death and the pit and there sit and wait for Christ to come, or they can refuse all of it and go into eternal ruin.

It is that simple, that blunt.  They can travel from their own “outer court” go through their “inner court” and find their hidden inner antichrist spirit and do something about it, THAT IS OPEN THE DOOR AND LET CHRIST TAKE THE SEAT OF GLORY.

As I have said, DARK/LIGHT which means from the DARKNESS to the LIGHT, and as Paul said, we see through a glass darkly is posted at      and is free. If you have trouble getting the link to work, call us at 1-800-257-2672. Prove it wrong. Prove that Christ did not say, that He did not mean it, or that is does not apply to all of us.

  1. You and I have a similar background, to which I don’t speak of much. God bless you for doing so. It has helped me and hopefully others (if anyone is even reading these truths anymore).

    That is the only reason we put these truths out here. It’s not to be boastful about our experiences at all. It is in hope and in prayer that someone else might be encouraged; to realize they are not alone and there is forgiveness from the Lord. All He requires from us, is obedience to His commands.

    I still carry the burden of shedding innocent blood, but because of the strait gate and narrow way, I will ultimately be forgiven for what I did. I just wanted other women (and the men who may have encouraged them) to know, if you repent and become obedient to what Jesus commanded, you have an escape from eternal damnation for the choices you made. That’s all I wanted to say.

    In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not. (Matt 2:18)

    Thank you my dear brother, for your words of encouragement to me. 💞

I call it “NEGATIVE CONFIRMATION.” When you are attacked in this manner, it appears to come out of people and friends for no reason. It is all negative and usually very hurtful.

    Once the Lord showed me the truth of His gospel, one of the first things I knew I had to do was leave the church (Baptist) that my wife and I were attending. It was the broad way and we had to come O-U-T. My wife went along with it for about 2 weeks, and that was enough for her. She went back to the church by herself; oftentimes, leaving with a terse, “See you later Mr. Pharisee.” This was in the Fall of 2012, and everything went downhill (in our marriage) from there.

    There were many hard things said and done in those days, but the Lord gets us through. There were two times that were particularly hard. The word “Sisera” was used in one, and “9-1-1” in another. After this, I determined that it might be necessary for me to literally walk out, at a moment’s notice, with the clothes on my back. Somehow(!) I came across a “waterproof Bible” on the Internet and ordered one. I put the waterproof Bible and an umbrella in my briefcase, ready to walk out if necessary.

    As it turned out, I never did have to WALK out, but after about six months of “living” like this, in a deteriorating marital state, I decided it was time to pack the car and leave. I packed it with the idea that I may never be back. I drove off in July, 2013. We had been married just over three years at that point. To those who knew us, we were the “perfect Christian couple.” (For anyone who read my comment in Part 12, this was the sweet woman that I “had my eye on” in the house church I was attending, a “life-long saved Christian woman”).

    To make a long story short: we never saw each other again nor spoke again. I received the final divorce decree from her lawyers a couple of months ago. So, we were married just over ten years; three years fast asleep on the broad way together (and “knowest not”); and then seven years totally separated, a strait gate and narrow way apart.

    It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house. (Prov 25:24)

    So, what happened? A careful reading of Stewart’s blog post explains it exactly: it’s the hidden inner man, manifesting, and destroying. The spirit of Satan himself, tucked away inside the unregenerated man’s (or woman’s) hidden inner man, pulling the strings like the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain.

    At the time, I did not really have a good clue to what was happening. I was just trying to survive, and it was the Lord who got me through. I was SHOCKED at the things coming out at me. But that is the power of Satan. It is not a joke and nothing to be trifled with.

    Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1John 4:4)

    And she couldn’t really help herself. We are all under the power of Satan, except we are not. This satanic bondage and blindness we are in (fallen mankind) helps explains verses like these:

    Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. (Luke 23:34)

    And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. (Acts 7:60)

    So, I ought to be likewise toward my (now) ex-wife. And my hope and prayer is that the Lord delivers her (and me also). Maybe we had to be separated first before the Lord brings a great deliverance of mercy to us both? I don’t know. Things too high for me.

    And what would the wife’s name be in this “perfect Christian couple”?

    But of course….Mary. And so it was.

    May the good Lord bless her and deliver us both…wicked and rebellious sinners against the most high God. Amen.

    • How bittersweet that this is

      Part 13 of Chapter 5

      The number 13, in God’s economy = Rebellion
      And of course, the number 5 = Grace

      Your witness today Peter is heart-wrenching from a worldly sense and yet ultimately a blessing in the spiritual sense. I know that sounds terrible, but to me, this story is like another betrayal related to “the church” in a sense. That you chose the true calling of God is the blessing: that your “other half” couldn’t is a shame.

      Not many marriages survive this process; mine didn’t and it was painful. I think it’s what they means when they say, this is where “the rubber meets the road”? The calling upon God’s chosen ones is intense.

      Jesus said He didn’t come to bring peace, but a sword, right? I don’t think it was just for the world at large; it was also very personal.

      Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. (Matt 10:34)

      But once again, God bless you for putting yourself out there with this testimony. The strait gate and narrow way are not a joke; it is a life altering experience that only a few survive. I think that’s why Jesus said to count the cost of something that was given to us freely.

      For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it? (Luke 14:28)

      For me, this post is bittersweet, for a completely different reason.

      The one child I allowed to come into this world and have the breath of life, was born on Friday the 13th. He was beautiful as God created him, with all his fingers and toes and I gave him away to a loving family 💕 The number 13 followed me around most all my life and because of that firstborn, I always considered it a “lucky” number. Not realizing what that number really stood for. It fit me perfectly, now that I do know.

      There was another one who wasn’t so lucky; who I chose not to allow to have the breath of life. I was sure after that, I was condemned to eternal ruin. It wasn’t until I discovered, through God’s grace (number 5) I could be forgiven, IF I chose obedience over rebellion and responded properly to that amazing call. I had no idea how gracious God could be…

      But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth. (Ps 86:15)

      So thank you Stewart for continuing with these postings. They are wonderful lessons to be reminded of the reason we have a “Coss-Walk” at all, as a beloved friend calls it.

      God bless both of you for what you do to enrich God’s Kingdom and those who seek Him out.

        The Lord has shown me that there can be a positive side to numbers too.

        Jesus plus his twelve disciples/apostles = 13.

        Thirteen cities allotted to the house of Aaron:

        All the cities of the children of Aaron, the priests, were thirteen cities with their suburbs. (Josh 21:19)

        Thirteen bullocks start the feast of tabernacles (and a verse 13):

        And ye shall offer a burnt offering, a sacrifice made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD; thirteen young bullocks, two rams, and fourteen lambs of the first year; they shall be without blemish: (Num 29:13)

        You and I have a similar background, to which I don’t speak of much. God bless you for doing so. It has helped me and hopefully others (if anyone is even reading these truths anymore).

        Another quote of truth from Stewart’s blog post:

        Most people, when this opposition and persecution comes, will then drop it, and never go back. They will not continue in, abide in, or remain in the doctrine of Christ to FIND THE TRUTH THAT SETS THEM FREE.

        ______________

        The story of king Manasseh is one of my ensamples of the mercy of the Lord. The Bible outlines his works, yet ends with this (a verse 13):

        And prayed unto him: and he was intreated of him, and heard his supplication, and brought him again to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD he was God. (2Chr 33:13)

        So there is merciful hope for all of us, if we turn to the Lord.

        For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. (Heb 8:12)

        Satan and his minions will whisper to us otherwise of course, but:

        What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Rom 8:31)

        …and we ought to just believe God.
