“New Wine Skin” #8

We have arrived. It has been a journey. The Apostle John was exiled to the Isle of Patmos for preaching Jesus, but we have arrived at the Isle of Passover! There were many excommunicated from the church because of preaching Passover!

There are those who say, “What can we do about it now? Surely it doesn’t matter anymore.” But is it still in your  New Testament Bible? Yes it is, both Book of Acts and !st Corinthians 11. Did Jesus set it as an example? Yes he did. Did the Apostles teach to continue it? Yes they did. Did the early church fathers do so? Yes they did! But as the church headed down a bad path with Constantine, around 300 AD, it seems Rome had finally won their way! So should we stay on that path? Are we justified in such a course?

If you have sailed this far with me, then you know most of the points I just mentioned, and I have but a little more to give. If you missed all the evidence laid out thus far, simply read backwards all the “New Wine Skin” articles, and you will find that it is true, the Apostles taught to continue a Christian form of Passover, and the early church did for many years, but it came under attack by bishops of Rome, and it was the beginning of the end, and now here we are today.

Many Bible experts think that Jesus did not teach us much about how to actually have “church”. Jesus was birthing the church but did not teach the details of running it, or its exact form, but I say he did! He did it in many ways! He showed us every day! As he walked about, as he ate meals and had fellowship, as he loved people and helped people and taught the Kingdom of God to one and all, as he had church EVERYWHERE as natural as a flowing river. Even as the Book of Acts church immediately had a heavy emphasis on fellowship, meals, Lord’s Supper, home meetings, and the Word. I wonder where they got that from? The evidence is beyond denying.

I strongly believe the Lord’s Supper is also God’s instructions as to what His church is to be, as if a holy template laid down for all to see and practice. The Lord’s Supper is a perfect picture of God’s family and fellowship. And it even included a devil to be exposed! That Supper is rich and overflowing with teachings for having church!

But we have short-formed the template and short circuited what church is meant to be. Is it too late? Or can there yet be a last days revival? And if there is to be, should we not go back to all the original templates our Lord set for us? Not simply the Passover meal/ Lord’s Supper, but all the templates! I think we should give the devil a spiritual heart attack as he sees a remnant, a powerful remnant coming alive in the old ways again! Is God asking too much of us modern Christians? It’s all in our Bibles.

Many Prophets of God have said this last Passover was very significant because the COVID 19 had forced people to stay in their homes as death haunted the streets. There had not been a Passover like it since going all the way back to the original one in Egypt! All the way back to Moses! And now there are Prophets looking at Pentecost. May 31st. If this last Passover was significant, might God also have plans for this Pentecost? Have you made yourself ready? 10 virgins are predicted to awake, but only 5 have the oil that poured out at Pentecost! Could there be a supernatural refreshing?

Over a year ago God showed me we were crossing a spiritual line in June of 2020. I haven’t said a lot about that because it’s hard to explain. I was on a 14 day separation to God in a special place, and I was watching the Orion meteor shower of 2018. How long is an hour with God? I felt God asked me that, that night. If my math is right, it’s roughly 42 years. And though we have been faithful to doing Passover for three years now, I never thought about Pentecost till this year! And the very next day after Pentecost, begins June! We cross the line on Pentecost! Wow. I’m still shocked by it all. Like I said, it’s hard to explain, unless you have ears to hear, and most don’t.

I have been preparing for Pentecost ever since I was made aware of this. I fast and pray each Friday. I will do so again this next Friday as we enter the Pentecost weekend. I love the way Jesus never forced anyone to do anything. He offered them wisdom and truth. Some of them were wise enough to lay hold of God’s many treasures, and many were not. This too, is the simple template of God’s church, and now we have our last piece of evidence to give before this blog site moves on to whatever God is planning next, but we will remain “Soul Sailors”. This has become a permanent theme of this site.

Okay…if you Google > “Christian form of Passover”, you should be able to find Wikipedia —- “Passover (Christian holiday). At that site you will find quotes by both Melito of Sardis, and a man named, Apollinaris who wrote things during those times concerning the practice of Passover, still going on with the church, at that time. But following those quotes is a subtitle of “Excommunication for celebrating passover”. In my mind it’s hard to understand what would be so evil about the Lord’s Supper/ Passover that would be grounds for excommunication. This is more evidence of the bad path we were on! (And maybe still are?)

Anyway… this is the information under that heading: “Christians who kept the biblical Passover were considered Quartodeciman because they kept Passover on the 14th day of Nisan. Polycrates of Ephesus, was a late 2nd century leader who was excommunicated (along with all Quartodecimans) by Pope Saint Victor for observing the Christian Passover on the 14th of Nisan and not switching it to a Sunday resurrection celebration. He, Polycrates, claimed he was simply following the practices according to scripture and the Gospels, as taught by the Apostles John and Philip, as well as by church leaders such as Polycarp and Melito of Sardis.” (Next paragraph.)> “According to Catholic Encyclopedia, neither Jesus Christ nor the early church leaders changed the Passover celebration to Easter. In fact, the Jewish feast was taken over into the Christian Easter celebration.”

And there you have it, folks. One last confirmation that some kind of a Christian form of Passover was continued by the early church for many years. Has God changed his mind? Has the Book of Acts or 1st Corinthians 11 changed? Might he be pleased if some of us got back to the original templates our Lord set?

I have set the sails of our small fellowship according to the old maps of our Bible. I am also remodeling our house to better fit what I believe will be a people waking up and looking for such places of simplicity. We are under no law requiring us to be experts on this Passover meal. God sees our hearts, and we do a simple form of it that we find to be rich and rewarding. Jonathon Cahn helped us understand more this year, and we implemented some of it as best we could. But most important is our hearts towards God and coming back together in that simple blood of Jesus family relationships. Simplicity is one of the templates our Lord gave us. Church Everywhere.

Modern church does not easily fit the old templates of the early church fathers. These things are a problem for them and the large amounts of money they need to keep afloat. They do not want to talk about these things, and all the while they look more and more like the church of Laodicea everyday. But we refuse to change the set of our sails. The sails of many churches today are set for the “great falling away”, but as Israel said when God challenged them to walk in the old ways… “We will not.” (Jer. 6:16)

This ship may look awesome, but what is it’s destination? Where is the set of those sails headed? Are we too caught up in fancy and powerful looks to be concerned about destination?

Fellowship of the White Path 7/15/18

The Mind Matrix / Helmet of Salvation

BattleisReal-1

We all live in a “Matrix”, a “Mind Matrix” of our choosing, of our own construction.

The movie which made this word so famous, “The Matrix”, in which Morpheus comes to Neo offering him… TRUTH… REALITY… A CHOICE… A FORK IN THE ROAD… Escape from smoke and mirrors illusion… Virtual Reality, but not REAL!…the choice to continue living a LIE… a FALSE ILLUSION so real you could not tell it was not real… a FALSE REALITY you have been convinced is real… or to WAKE UP!… ENTER ENLIGHTENMENT… KNOW TRUTH…FACE REALITY…even though it may be HARD… but live to make a REAL DIFFERENCE!

I’ve been looking forward to this subject.

Welcome to this week’s “Fellowship of the White Path”.

As we just finished looking at the Belt of Truth in God’s Armor of Light, we will now move to the Helmet of Salvation, but how can we examine what protects our head and mind, without realizing we also continue the study of the Belt of Truth?

What is the MATRIX in “YOUR” head?

Anything less than the TRUTH is the beginning of our Fall! What we don’t know can hurt us! Even our innocent unintentional misconceptions can lead to failure! We should always be seeking more TRUTH, greater light, because only TRUTH sets us free!

BUT WHAT IS THE TRUTH YOU HAVE CHOSEN? THAT IS THE WORLD YOU ARE LIVING IN, WHETHER FALSE OR REAL. THAT WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN LED TO “BELIEVE” IS REAL.

There is so much to be considered and discussed on this subject. And what is the truth of it? For that is what we seek. We’re going to spend some time on the Helmet, because the Helmet is a MATRIX, the MIND of CHRIST. Every decision we make, every action we give birth to, has passed through that matrix, OUR MATRIX, before manifesting into the earth and creating, influencing the world we live in, the life we live. If you hate the life you live? Something has to change in that matrix of yours before anything else can get better.

OUR MATRIX IS SO REAL TO US! It may look, feel, taste real. The “Experts” may say this is what’s real. Everything may be shouting at us THIS IS REAL! THIS IS WHAT “I WANT” TO BE REAL! But unless it is also TRUE, then it’s NOT REAL.

Sometimes…for some people, it seems…it is so hard to know what is true, and what is real. A virtual reality is exactly that, because it seems so real! The more “truth-like” it is, the more powerful it is! We are convinced we know the truth. There is no need for change in “us”. Christians are just weak people who cannot face the fact we all die, so they create a “happy place” to go to. But the truth is, there is no God, no heaven, no hell, no life after death, everything is a dead end street. It’s that simple, and that is the “matrix” millions of people live in. It is so real to them! Life, a dead-end street!

I am not one of those people. That is not the matrix I believe. In my world, that matrix is a lie sending a lot of people to a very real hell! Because of my matrix, I am motivated to create such a blog site as this with the message of “AWAKEN”! LIGHT BE! My matrix causes me to walk in Priesthood!

My brain frame is very different from that of mortality. I have a Biblical Matrix in my head which I have spent many years constructing through much study and testing. You may have a Science Matrix. Actually, the two are not necessarily incompatible, not in my matrix, anyway.

But you may have a Worldly Matrix, or materialistic, money hungry, power hungry mind frame. There are a billion different mind frames, perspectives we can have. Every one of us a very unique individual, but in the midst of all this comes a great teacher, a teacher like none other, a teacher very hard to rationally explain his effect on history, and he boldly declares with no hint of doubt or apology that the TRUTH is what sets us free! Hhmmm. (Do we agree with him on this, but ignore many other things he said and did?) If so, you have a “glitch” in your programming.

HIS word challenges us to “be transformed by the renewing of our minds”! (Rom. 12:2) We are even given a list to “think on these things”. (Phil. 4:8) And to have the “Mind of Christ”! (Phil. 2:5-8) We are also told to be Born-Again. To intentionally choose God as our Father if we want connection to our Creator. Whaaat? Many laugh at all this like they laughed at Noah.

But if you’re a Believer of the Bible, then your perspective on everything begins changing. Your brain frame is changing. What you see yourself living is completely different than those who simply walk in flesh and blood. The “Holy Spirit Matrix of God’s revealed Truth” is a powerful mind frame transporting you out of mortality into Eternity. Transforming you from a thought process of flesh and blood to one of SPIRIT. We now live in a different Kingdom ruled by a different set of laws, and a very different freedom, a very REAL FREEDOM. Life in the Spirit!

BUT HAVE YOU BEEN TEACHABLE? AND WHO HAVE YOU CHOSEN AS YOUR TEACHERS? HOW EXPERT ARE THEY? HOW DO YOU JUDGE “EXPERT”? A PAPER HANGING ON THEIR WALL? HOW RICH OR SUCCESSFUL THEY SEEM TO BE? HOW GREAT IS THE LIGHT IN YOUR HEAD? HAS IT GIVEN YOU A PRIEST MATRIX, OR KING? (King is a false teaching, a mistranslation. Check it out.)

The Matrix (mind) of Christ is Priesthood. Anything less is a lesser light. Some of the teachers you have filled your head with are not as expert as you thought. Perhaps they have a Money Matrix? Perhaps they are led by pride, or power, or other teachers they thought were “all that”, and they want to be “all that” too. And to “that”… the TRUTH is that pride goes before a fall!

THE HELMET UPON OUR HEAD IS EVERYTHING! It’s not optional! It determines your spiritual success or failure!

This very real challenge has been called the “Battlefield of the Mind”. This is where it is determined what we really believe and who we really are, and if we’re really following Christ, or not. Jesus said many call him Lord, but do not what he says. He told those to “DEPART FROM HIM”. (Not words I want to hear.)

How about you? Even at this very moment your Mind Matrix is deciding how you feel about what I just said. And out of that you will decide if there are changes you need to make or not. You will decide if you like me or not. Possibly label me a quack. It all depends on YOUR reality. But is your reality REAL? Am I a quack? Or someone God wants you to listen to?

Just because your chosen matrix may put me in a “quack file”, does not mean I am. Only TRUTH determines all things. Only God will be the judge of that. I’m not concerned about YOUR TRUTH, only GOD’S TRUTH. And I function as a Priest of that truth, that light. So the more we have the Mind of Christ, the God Matrix; then the more we will be able to file things correctly and make wise and productive decisions we will not later regret. We will successfully walk the path without end, as Priest of Christ. Is this the reality that completely dominates everything else in your head? It should be. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God!

But if you examine your matrix and in all “honesty” decide there is a “truth gap” between what you claim with your mouth and what you actually live in your daily life, then here is your chance to WAKE UP before it is too late.  I have much to say on this subject of the “Mind Matrix” and TRUTH. Let us put on the Helmet of Salvation, the Mind of Christ, the God Matrix! And know…each piece of this Armor are so inextricably connected…the Belt of Truth…the Boots of the Gospel…Breastplate of Righteousness…Shield of Faith…Sword of the Spirit…Prayer and Supplication… that the whole Armor are one…even as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit…ARE ONE!
