Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages

Rock of ages cleft for me………………………………….change this to Rock of Chalk, carved for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee
Let the water and the blood
From thy riven side which flowed
Oh, be of sin the double cure
Cleanse me from its guilt and power
Nothing in my hand I bring
Simply to Thy cross I cling
Nothin’ in my hand I bring
Simply to Thy cross I cling
Naked, come to Thee for dress (come to Thee for dress)………..This speaks of a Mikva
Helpless, look to Thee for grace
(Oh, look to Thee for grace)
Vile, I to the fountain fly
Wash me, Savior, or I die……………………………………………………..Purify me for Body Salvation
Rock of ages (ooh, rock of ages)
Cleft for me (cleft for me)
Let me hide myself in Thee
Rock of ages, cleft for me
Let me hide myself in Thee (in Thee)

Ask and ye shall receive


Ask and ye shall receive.

Elijah never encouraged Elisha. In fact, 3 times Elijah tested Elisha. Elisha answered him, “As the Lord
liveth, and as thy soul liveth, I will not leave thee”. The sons of the prophets tried to discourage him.
Elisha always answered “Hold your peace”. There were no elders in the church to encourage him. He
couldn’t run home for a rest. All he had was his own determination.
When Elijah was ready to go, he asked Elisha “Ask what I shall do for thee. Here is Elijah this great man
of God. Elijah had stood in front of the King, withheld rain, and defeated 400 prophets of Baal, etc. Elisha
wasn’t modest. He didn’t say I want half of what you have. No, His answer was I want twice what you
have! And he got it.

Don’t be bashful.

Are all Christians the same? The Bible says no. They are not the same. Some press toward the mark for
the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus, while others are willing to just go to heaven and
avoid hell.

Romans 9:16 says So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth

So press in for the high calling and ask God for it and also mercy.
Revelation 22:21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen

A better light!


A better Light!

Moses tabernacle in the wilderness is covered by a cloud of glory. There are degrees of glory in the

After the sun rose high enough to reach over the linen fence, there was a reflection from the shining
brass of the laver and the brazen altar. As the sun rose, the light grew. The priests of the outer court
were busy with activity. But that activity had to end with the sunset.
It is the same thing with our Fundamentalist Churches of today. Salvation is wonderful and brings great
light. This is a realm of the Spirit. There is a lot of activity with faith and the Word. Praise God! They get
souls saved, they teach Calvary, and they teach holiness.

However, when you go in the sanctuary, you are not affected by the setting of the sun. In addition, the
blood from the sacrifice from the outer court is taken into the inner court and sprinkled upon the
furniture there. Those in the outer court cannot see the light that is in the inner court. The light from the
seven branch candlestick shines on the table of showbread, and the altar of incense, reflecting the light
of God’s divine nature, to those priests who minister there daily. There is no natural light here. The roof
is made of linens, ram’s skins, goatskins, and badger (dolphin) skins. In addition, there are no windows.
This is the realm of the spirit filled Body of Christ. The ministry of this place is Spirit given, Spirit
revealed, and Spirit operated. Without the light from the candlestick, this place is in total darkness. In
addition, when the Body of Christ losses the oil and light of the Holy Spirit it is a very dark place. In spite
of the glory of the Spirit, it is still an imperfect place. It is now time to move to something greater.
Let’s pass through the final veil into the most holy place. Here we find a light far greater than either of
the others. Here there are no windows and no candlestick. This is not the natural light of man’s
understanding. It is also not a flickering light of an imperfect Body of Christ that needs a fresh supply of
the Spirit daily to keep the flesh from taking over. This is an eternal and perfect light, that brings the
fullness of His knowledge and understanding and presence. Here there are no failures, no death, no
defeat. Hallelujah! Not all priesthood, or ministries come to this High Calling. This is only for “sons”. This
is the Melchisedec ministry. This is our inheritance, bought for us and paid for by our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are His inheritance!

Romans 8:29 says For whom He foreknew, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His
Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Romans 8:18 says, For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared
with the glory (thinking) which shall be revealed IN US.

Where is the glory to be revealed In heaven? In the sky? In angels? No in US!
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of

Out from that veil will come a company of sons who will have the message of the everlasting Gospel, the
same message Jesus preached, and will do the works of Jesus and even greater works. They will
manifest the glory of the Father, as Jesus did. They will have the Spirit without measure, as was given to
Jesus. There will be no limit to the power of this Sonship.

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;
and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
You might even call this group of people the Melchisedec Company.
Certainly there will be judgement on earth. But 1 Thessalonians 5:9 says, But we are not appointed unto
wrath, but to obtain full deliverance and salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

All Israel will defeat death in one day!


All Israel will defeat death in one day!

When reading Joshua know that chapter 2 is about Rehab, chapter 3 is crossing the Jordan river, 4 setting up the stones as a memorial, 5 is circumcising all the males that were born in the wilderness and chapter 6 is about defeating Jericho. 

I just want to talk about chapter 3 here. It says as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the ark of the Lord, shall rest in the waters of Jordan, the waters shall stand upon an heap. And as they  that bear the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest, the waters rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, and those that came down, failed, and were cut off. (That’s the bad guys) And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.

The ark of the covenant is a symbol of His glory and His presence.

The waters were rolled the whole way back to Adam! The water didn’t roll back until the priests got their feet wet. It was the time of harvest. Therefore, Feast of Tabernacles. The river Jordan is a symbol of death. Jesus was baptized there fortelling his death and resurrection. To come into the land of promise, there must be a crossing of the Jordan river. This means death to self, but it also means to defeat natural death. There is a priesthood that bares His glory, His presence. That is the Melchisedec priesthood. After the feet of the body of priests come to rest in the middle of the Jordan river, then all Israel will defeat death, cross Jordan and enter into their inheritance. The promise was given to Abraham, paid for by Jesus, but remains in heaven, until it is revealed in the last days.  

This will be a corporate body salvation. All Israel will defeat death in one day, only when the priests of Melchisedec carry his presence into the middle of the Jordan river. 

In the next chapter we set up a memorial for that body salvation that we just received. And in the following chapter we get our hearts circumcised. 

That is baptism, memorial and then circumcision.

I am going to explain that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. And the Holy Spirit is righteousness,
peace and joy. We all knew that. But let’s add the Father brings justice, judgment and holiness.

Jesus: the Way, the Truth and the Life

(John 14:6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father,
but by me.

Add to that,
Holy Spirit: righteousness, peace and joy
(Romans 14:17) For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in
the Holy Ghost.

Add to that,
The Father: judgment, justice and holiness
Right now our world is crying out for justice, judgment and holiness. We want judgement and then
justice in our government, Congressmen, Senators and presidents and for the bad guys. We want
holiness in our role models. We are all tired of the sex scandals of our past presidents, politicians,
football heroes and Hollywood stars. We all want to get rid of the pedophiles and cannibals. We all
want the same thing right now. But we don’t even know that we are already united. And this cry is

(Isaiah 5:16) But the LORD of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified
in righteousness.

(Justice, Judgement, righteousness Jeremiah 23:5) Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will
raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgement
and justice in the earth.

(Justice, Holiness Jeremiah 31:23) Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; As yet they shall use
this speech in the land of Judah and in the cities thereof, when I shall bring again their captivity; The
LORD bless thee, O habitation of justice, and mountain of holiness.

(Justice, Judgement, Peace Isaiah 9:7) Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no
end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgement
and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
(Justice, Judgement, Righteousness Isaiah 56:1) Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgement, and do
justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

Do we get rid of Jesus because we got the Holy Spirit? NO! We add the Holy Spirit to Jesus. Do we get rid
of the Holy Spirit because we have the presence of the Father? Absolutely Not! We add the Father to
the Holy Spirit and to Jesus.

You: spirit, soul and body.

Jesus heals your spirit. The Holy Spirit heals your soul and the glory of the Father will inhabit your body.
But if you don’t have Jesus, then you don’t have any direction and you lie. If you don’t have the Holy
Spirit, you are not at peace. And if you don’t have the Father then, your body will be judged and you will
lose it.

Aren’t you glad that you have Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Father?

I am!

Why pour three times


In modern synagogues they dunk three times.


These are the verses they use.

Leviticus 15:13 And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself
seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and he shall be

That is a purification for the body.

Leviticus 16:19 And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and
hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel.
This is a purification from society, we only care about what others think with our soul.

Leviticus 16:30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may
be clean from all your sins before the LORD. LORD = Yahweh
This is a spiritual purification.

I think this is what John did to everybody else he baptized. Still Jesus didn’t need any of these

What is a Mikvah ?

A Mikvah is a ritual purification, it is Jewish tradition.


Leviticus 15-6 And he that sitteth on anything whereon he sat that hath the issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even. 

Leviticus 11-36 Nevertheless a fountain or pit, wherein there is plenty of water, shall be clean: but that which toucheth their carcass shall be unclean.

You also need to be made pure after menstruation, after having a baby, after touching a sick person, after touching a dead body. Most men use the Mikvah every Friday afternoon. There are many many reasons to purify yourself. If you are unclean, you cannot go to the tabernacle and worship. You must purify yourself first. 

If there is a drought, you cannot worship! Wow!

Umm so we are dirty and we need to be made clean. 

Let’s just talk about this water.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 

While the earth was without form and void before creation, the spirit of God moved on the face of the water?

Water existed before the rest of the world was created. In the beginning there was God and there was water. I know, I know.  John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. So He made the water first. Just stay with me here. 

Genesis 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 

Genesis 1:7 And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Now we have under water and above water.

Genesis 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 

Then He takes the underwater and gathered it together.

Genesis 1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering (mikvah) together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. 

God is rearranging the water because He is making space for something else. Two different things can’t be in the same place at the same time. So, God had to make space for the air and dry land. So God causes the water to recede. That contracted body of water is called a mikvah. 

So, when you enter a mikvah you are leaving man’s world and entering God’s world. You will find God there. A mikvah needs to be filled with under water (groundwater) or above water (rainwater). No tap waters. However, it is not the the water that purifies you. This water is just a symbol, it is the means. It is because this is where you encounter God.

However the ocean and rivers are Kosher! 

Why is this water so important? It is much like amniotic fluid. This water must be perfect to support new life.  Psamls 91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of El-Elyon shall abide under the shadow of El-Shaddi. 

During Jesus time there were many stepped pools, used for purification. Archaeology has discovered them all over Jerusalem and Quamran. Archaeology has also found many chalk vessels near the  immersion pools. 

Nowadays there are mikvahs in the basement of big synagogues. You cannot use a bucket to fill it. Because man cannot tamper with the water.


Psalm 29:3

The voice of the LORD = Yahweh

Is upon the waters: the God = 410 – 352 – 193 = Almighty God = El Shaddai 

of glory = heavy riches

thundereth: the LORD = Yahweh

is upon many waters.


That says,


The voice of Yahweh is upon the waters: El Shaddai of heavy riches thundereth: Yahweh is upon many waters.

That is waters plural. So I can baptize you in the swimming pool!


When the warm waters of the mikvah envelop you the stress, self-consciousness, sadness all melt away. Mikvah is silent, sensory, dream-like. This is a soul cleansing.

We did it. My friends came to my house and we went down to the pool. We pushed one of my friends in a wheelchair. When she got there she said, “help me up! Help me into the water.” We were surprised because we thought she would just watch. But she wanted this God experience. Another lady had on a long dress and she didn’t want to get in the pool. But she said,” Can you just pour the water on my head? “We did. You see God will meet you where you are. God will come to your level. And God was there. It was a very beautiful experience.

Sanctify, Hebrew 6942 in Strongs, prim root, be clean, consecrate, dedicate, hallow, holy, keep, prepare, proclaim, purify

Sanctify, Greek 37 in Strongs, make holy, purify, consecrate mentally, hallow, be holy. From 40 sacred, pure, blameless, most holy

1 Thessalonians 5: 23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

1 Thessalonians 5:24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

What does sanctify mean?

Justified is for your spirit, Sanctified is for you soul and glorified is for your body.

1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption

That says, God made Christians, wise, righteous and sanctifies us, and this will redeem us. 

Wisdom, righteousness and sanctification are all for the soul. 

2 Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth.

Now that says you have been chosen for salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and Truth. Now I thought sanctification was for the Soul?

1 Peter 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ; Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.

That also said that sanctification is for the Spirit. 

Ephesians 5: 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word

That says the word will sanctify you. 

Corinthians 6:11 but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.  

That says you are washed in your body, or maybe your Soul is washed.   

St. John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

That agrees with Ephesians 5:26.

Leviticus 20:7&8 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God. 8 And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them: I am the Lord which sanctify you. 

In conclusion, Santification is for the Spirit, Soul and Body. It is purification.

Jesus turned the water into wine


We now know that when John the Baptist baptized Jesus in the Jordan river, he didn’t dunk him. He used a chalk vessel and poured the water over his head. Chalk is a soft stone. It is carved. This is not pottery. No one would use these for eating or drinking because chalk dust would get on the food or drink. Just wouldn’t taste good and be gritty. 

So Jesus went to the wedding in Galilee. This is where Jesus turned the water into wine.

Mary his mother was there and so were all his brothers. Mary was very upset when she realized that they had run out of wine, and she said Jesus do something. You see Jesus was her oldest son. According to Biblical Archaeology Review magazine, as the custom of that time period, the wedding feast was paid for by the groom’s family.  Therefore, I believe that the groom was Jesus biological brother. Mary would not have said or done anything if she wasn’t a key figure at the wedding. When they ran out of something she would have smiled politely and not made a bid deal about it. But she did make a big deal about it, so I believe it was one of her son’s that was getting married. 

And Jesus said, no I won’t do anything. Jesus was having a good time at the wedding, and he didn’t want to leave the wedding and go into town and buy more wine. And he didn’t want to ask any friends or servants to leave either. So he said, my time has not yet come. But then after some thought and prayer, Jesus saw that there was another answer. Just turn the water into wine and Jesus wouldn’t have to leave. John 2:1 – 10, Matthew 22:2 & 25:10, Luke 12:36 & 14:8

John 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: 2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. 3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, they have no wine. 6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.

Firkin – Strongs 3355 = a standard measure, from 3354 to measure, from 3358, a measure.

We don’t know how big this measure is, only that it is a unit of measure.

If you get sickness in the pot and it is a clay pottery pot you have to break the pot. Not so for a stone chalk pot. It will not hold sickness. It is pure.

We have found that chalk is a neutral. It is a base. If you have too much staomach acid, it will help. It pulls toxins.

What were those purifying pots doing there? you. The bride and the groom were purified before the wedding. There were 6 pots. Three for the bride and three for the groom.

The servants knew that it was taboo to use these pots for food or drink. John 2:9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom. 10 And saith unto him, every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. 

And it was good.   

When John baptized Jesus (this was a ritual purification), he used a chalk vessel. He used one hand and poured the water over Jesus’s head. Small pot. If John used a huge pot, he might knock you out on accident!  At the wedding there was three pots each. Makes six pots. 

At the wedding they were small pots. Didn’t matter. They didn’t run out. Wine is a symbol for the Holy Spirit, and His is never ending.

The chalk vessel was carved from a chalk rock or stone. 1 Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

The chalk vessel was carved from Christ!

Under the cloud and all passed through the sea

1 Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2. And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3. And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 4. And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 5. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 6. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 11. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 

The moral here is that even though they experienced a wonderful saving baptism, it didn’t make a lasting change.


P.S. Robin Bullock (a modern-day prophet) prophesied that the Choctaw tribe (native American) (pronounced Chalk tall) will expose voter fraud. We use a chalk vessel in purification. Isn’t that interesting?

what did John say when he baptized Jesus

What did John say when he baptized Jesus


First of all, why do we baptize? Answer, because we were told to. 

The Great Commission 

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

When you study baptism in the Greek there are two words. Baptizo and bapto. The clearest example that shows the meaning of baptiso is a text from the Greek poet and physician Nicander, who lived about 200 B.C. It is a recipe for making pickles and is helpful because it uses both words. Nicander says  that in order to make a pickle, the vegetable should first be ‘dipped’ (bapto) into boiling water and then ‘baptised’ (baptizo) in the vinegar solution. Both verbs concern the immersing of vegetables in a solution. But the first change is temporary. The second, the act of baptizing the vegetable, produces a permanent change. When used in the New Testament, this word more often refers to our union and identification with Christ than to our water baptism. For example. Mark 16:16 ‘He that believes and is baptized shall be saved’. Christ is saying that mere intellectual assent is not enough. There must be a union with him, a real change. Like the vegetable to the pickle! Bible Study Magazine, James Montgomery Boice, May 1989.

The moral here is that even though they experienced a wonderful saving baptism, it didn’t make a lasting change.

Pickles are so funny! I don’t know why.

1 Corinthians 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2. And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3. And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 4. And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of the spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ. 5. But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. 6. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted. 11. Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 

We believe that when John baptized Jesus, he did it by pouring from purification pots as was the custom of those days. 

The first pour is, for the priesthood. We die in proxy for and with the saints who have gone on before us, the dead. Including Jesus Christ being the firstfruits of the dead. 1 Corinthians 15:20 We raise in proxy for them. We raise in power. 

1 Corinthians 15:29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead if the dead don’t raise? Why did they bother getting baptized for the dead? 

Ummmm I wonder what the context was for that. Let’s look and see if we can make more sense of that. 

1 Corinthians chapter 15, paraphrased:

Verse 3. Christ died for our sins. 4. He was buried and rose again. 5. He was seen of the 12. 6.  He was seen of 500 people. 7. He was seen of James. 8. He was seen of me, Paul. 12. We all preach He rose. How can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead. (Sadducees don’t believe in resurrection of the dead) 13. So if there is no resurrection of the dead, then wasn’t Christ risen? 15. Yep, Then all those people who witnessed him are liars. 16. If the dead don’t raise then neither did Christ. 20.  Now Christ rose from the dead and became the firstfruits of the dead. 21.  Death came by man (Adam) resurrection of the dead came by man. (Christ) 22. In Adam all die, in Christ all be made alive. 23. Christ the firstfruits, after that at Christ coming. 24. Then the end comes, when He gives the kingdom to the Father God, when He shall put down all rule and all authority and power. 25. For He must reign, till he puts all enemies under his feet. 26. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 29. Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead if the dead don’t raise? Why did they bother getting baptized for the dead? 32. If I fought beasts, what did I gain? If the dead don’t raise? So let’s eat and drink because tomorrow we die. 33. Don’t be deceived, evil communication corrupt good manners. 45. Adam was a living soul, the last Adam a quickening spirit. 51. A mystery, we shall all be changed. 52. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 54. Death is swallowed up in victory. 55. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56. The sting of death is sin, and the strength of sin is the law. 57. But thank you Jesus Christ! 58. Keep on, your labour is not in vain in the Lord.   

Paul was trying to teach the Sadducees about the resurrection. When we die with them, it somehow makes it easier for them to raise again. 

This might be a rehearsal.


The second pour is, for the prophets. We are baptized into one body, the body of Christ. 

1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free, and have all made to drink into one Spirit.

I was thinking about the school of the prophets, and I remembered that one time I went to an IMAX movie. I watched schools of fish move in the water, when they turned around, they all did it at the same time. They did not follow each other. It was not like a chorus line. They moved in unison. They explained that fish have another organ that people don’t have. I have prayed that God would give me that organ so that we can move as the body of Christ as one body. But it won’t help unless we all get that organ. Anyways, now I see that we will all be fish but not necessarily the same kind of fish. There will be whales, dolphins, neon tetra, Nimos, oh clown fish, lol, trout, bass, muskie, minows, etc. All moving as one fish. 

Isaiah 52:8  Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye. When the LORD (Yahweh) shall bring again Zion. 

You see that says that the body of Christ will behave as one body. 

As Lance Wallnau says, “As One”. We are one body of soldiers, just like in the movie “Gladiator”.

Corinthians chapter 12, paraphrased:


Concerning spiritual gifts, don’t be stupid. 2. Gentiles got carried away with dumb idols. 3. No man can say that Jesus is Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. 4. There are different gifts but the same spirit. 5. There are different administrations, but the same Lord 6.  There are different operations, but the same God. 7. The manifestation of the Spirit is given to profit everyone. 8. One is given wisdom, another knowledge, by the same spirit. 9. Another faith, another healing, by the same spirit. 10. Another miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, tongues, interpretation 11. They all work by the same spirit 12. One body, many members, being many, one body, same with Christ. 13. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, bond or free, all have been made to drink into one Spirit. 14. For the body is not one member, but many. 15. The foot can’t say I am not of the body. 17. If the whole body were an eye, then where is the hearing? Or if the whole were the hearing, then where is the smelling? 18. God set every member in the body, as pleases Him. 20. Many members, one body. 22. The more feeble members are necessary. 23.  We bestow more abundant honor on the less honorable and more comeliness on the uncomely. 24. Pretty parts have no need, God put the body together, giving more honor to the part that lacked. 25. There should be no schism in the body, everyone should care for each other equally. 27. You are the body of Christ. 28. God put in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, healing, helps, governments, tongues 29. Are all apostles, prophets, teachers, miracle workers 30. Healings, tongues, interpretation? 31. Covet the best gifts. And I will shew you a more excellent way.  


This may also be helpful when looking at the circumcision of the heart. Colossians 2:11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; 

Here we use the Holy Spirit to save our Soul.

The third pour is for the Kings. God makes an oath. This is for Body Salvation.

Hebrews 7:21 For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord (El Elyon) sware and will not repent, Thou are a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec. 6:17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: 18. That by two immutable (unchangeable) things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: 19 Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, even after the order of Melchisedec. 

Our forerunner is Jesus.

Hope is for body salvation.

We are priests, prophets, and kings. We shall be baptized in all 3 offices and have the responsibilities of all three.


So let’s recap. Here is what we say at the first pour, This is for the priests. We die in proxy for the dead. We raise in proxy for them. We raise in power. Christ being the firstfruits of the dead. Spirit salvation.

By the authority of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I now baptize you.

Here is what we say at the second pour, This is for the prophets. We are baptized into one body, the body of Christ. This is for soul salvation.

By the authority of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I now baptize you.

Here is what we say at the third pour, This is for the Kings and body salvation. God will now make an  oath that will bring you into the order of Melchisedec. 

By the authority of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I now baptize you.


A theocracy is when God’s law is written in our Spirit. And our Spirit will control our Soul. This is the goal. 

At this point I hope for a physical manifestation of this body. I hope immortality. 

Forever in His Love

P.S. Just in Acts, Jesus followers are explained as, reasoning, arguing, persuading, examining, devating, disputing, explaining, defending, refuting, convincing, proving, but most of all persuading! Let’s go do that.
