My orchestration is complete in you in that in fact you have been crushed and fractured as a diamond brushed and honed , thoroughly ground into My existence and pleasure and I wear you as My Signet ring of power and authority in My Name .
Therefore only and all you do is by my hand and in My Name ( JESUS ) of the strictest obedience wrapped in the gold and silver of My glory tested in the fire ( COALS) of My Testimony ( JESUS ) and Salvation of My ways , for My words are Life breathed ( received ) and exhausted "Sent Out" for you ARE My "Sent Ones" (Apostles of Truth ) and I AM your Lord , God and Savior of your ways and now "As My Word " ( WATER ) The "faucets"( FACETS) , Voice of many waters of My wisdom , knowledge and understanding resonating My Fear and Power Shall be released through "YOU" ( IN ME ) in the winds and fires of My Testimony ( Spirit of prophecy ) and covenant ( Blood ) with and to My Children of Light as " The Gem of Understanding " ( Rhema ) in The Revelation of " All I AM IN YOU " ( RUAH ) .
For Now is My time and the " Pendulum of obedience " ( Lion Of Judah ) sweeps now " As " My 7 eyes searching to and fro , for My " Beloved ones " ( Bride ) I call My own that I find together " AS ONE " ( BODY ) in the Unity and Fear of the Lord walking and waiting upon Me " The Rock " ( FOUNDATION ) and Cornerstone " ( Grace ) of their ways abiding in my " Joy " ( Blessings ) .
So take heart " My Heart " ( LOVE ) upon " you " ( New wine skins ) For I AM your "Gem" ( INHERITANCE ) and " reward " ( NEW WINE ) "alone" ( MENORAH ) as you "listen" ( OBEY ) to My "voice" ( STAFF ) upon and between the "wings" ( ROD ) of My Love .
Daniel 6:17 A stone was brought and laid over the mouth of the den; and the king sealed it with his own signet ring and with the signet rings of his nobles, so that nothing would be changed in regard to Daniel.
Haggai 2:23 'On that day,' declares the LORD of hosts, 'I will take you, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, My servant,' declares the LORD, 'and I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you,'" declares the LORD of hosts.
Exodus 25:22 22There I will meet with you and, from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim that are upon the ark of the Testimony, I will speak intimately with you of all which I will give you in commandment to the Israelites.
Deuteronomy 33:12 12About Benjamin he said:
Let the beloved of the LORD rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between his shoulders.
2 Corinthians 1 1-2I, Paul, have been sent on a special mission by the Messiah, Jesus, planned by God himself. I write this to God's congregation in Corinth, and to believers all over Achaia province. May all the gifts and benefits that come from God our Father and the Master, Jesus Christ, be yours! Timothy, someone you know and trust, joins me in this greeting. The Rescue 3-5All praise to the God and Father of our Master, Jesus the Messiah! Father of all mercy! God of all healing counsel! He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us. We have plenty of hard times that come from following the Messiah, but no more so than the good times of his healing comfortwe get a full measure of that, too. 6-7When we suffer for Jesus, it works out for your healing and salvation. If we are treated well, given a helping hand and encouraging word, that also works to your benefit, spurring you on, face forward, unflinching. Your hard times are also our hard times. When we see that you're just as willing to endure the hard times as to enjoy the good times, we know you're going to make it, no doubt about it.
8-11We don't want you in the dark, friends, about how hard it was when all this came down on us in Asia province. It was so bad we didn't think we were going to make it. We felt like we'd been sent to death row, that it was all over for us. As it turned out, it was the best thing that could have happened. Instead of trusting in our own strength or wits to get out of it, we were forced to trust God totallynot a bad idea since he's the God who raises the dead! And he did it, rescued us from certain doom. And he'll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing. You and your prayers are part of the rescue operationI don't want you in the dark about that either. I can see your faces even now, lifted in praise for God's deliverance of us, a rescue in which your prayers played such a crucial part.
12-14Now that the worst is over, we're pleased we can report that we've come out of this with conscience and faith intact, and can face the worldand even more importantly, face you with our heads held high. But it wasn't by any fancy footwork on our part. It was God who kept us focused on him, uncompromised. Don't try to read between the lines or look for hidden meanings in this letter. We're writing plain, unembellished truth, hoping that you'll now see the whole picture as well as you've seen some of the details. We want you to be as proud of us as we are of you when we stand together before our Master Jesus.
15-16Confident of your welcome, I had originally planned two great visits with youcoming by on my way to Macedonia province, and then again on my return trip. Then we could have had a bon-voyage party as you sent me off to Judea. That was the plan.
17-19Are you now going to accuse me of being flip with my promises because it didn't work out? Do you think I talk out of both sides of my moutha glib yes one moment, a glib no the next? Well, you're wrong. I try to be as true to my word as God is to his. Our word to you wasn't a careless yes canceled by an indifferent no. How could it be? When Silas and Timothy and I proclaimed the Son of God among you, did you pick up on any yes-and-no, on-again, off-again waffling? Wasn't it a clean, strong Yes?
20-22Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In him, this is what we preach and pray, the great Amen, God's Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident. God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us. By his Spirit he has stamped us with his eternal pledgea sure beginning of what he is destined to complete.
23Now, are you ready for the real reason I didn't visit you in Corinth? As God is my witness, the only reason I didn't come was to spare you pain. I was being considerate of you, not indifferent, not manipulative.
24We're not in charge of how you live out the faith, looking over your shoulders, suspiciously critical. We're partners, working alongside you, joyfully expectant. I know that you stand by your own faith, not by ours.

Do you see my children you are the ones “I see” doing my will and this is the wheel in the wheel that drives my will and you are not just a cornerstone but a hearth and fire for me to others, warming and releasing the wells and wellsprings within others now driven to do my will as you so know my children I see you as one, this wheel within my wheel and kingdom for “now” is my time and my now is yours as you do my will alone.
These are times of struggle but persevere my children for the prize is great and I AM your prize eternal and it is my kingdom that lies before you in faces in need of Me !
15 Now as I looked at the living creatures, behold, a wheel was on the earth beside each living creature with its four faces. 16 The appearance of the wheels and their workings was like the color of beryl, and all four had the same likeness. The appearance of their workings was, as it were, a wheel in the middle of a wheel. 17 When they moved, they went toward any one of four directions; they did not turn aside when they went. 18 As for their rims, they were so high they were awesome; and their rims were full of eyes, all around the four of them. 19 When the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up. 20 Wherever the spirit wanted to go, they went, because there the spirit went; and the wheels were lifted together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures[a]was in the wheels. 21 When those went, these went; when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up together with them, for the spirit of the living creatures[b]was in the wheels. 22 The likeness of the firmament above the heads of the living creatures[c]was like the color of an awesome crystal, stretched out over their heads.

” My sheep “ Jesus really means that read exodus 23:20 and numbers 12 ! Wow now that release the fear of The Lord that is the beginning of all wisdom .
Sagan taught a course on critical thinking at Cornell University until he died . . . He was Jewish but was there a veil ?!
If you have seen me you have seen the FATHER ~ they are one
The fear of the Lord is the begining of all wisdom and understanding so you cant know Jesus truly if you do not reverence the Father !
Isaiah 11:2 and he delights in the fear of the Lord !
My love for you is tremendous so remember all you do in My Name ( Jesus ) and for the purposes of my will alone , void of all your intentions shall be fulfilled in the timing of my kingdom in an eternal manner for I reign supreme and it is in the acceptance of this knowledge that you enter my gates and abide in my presence . And it is this that surrounds you as you abide in my will . Thus I shall never leave you or forsake you as you remain in me and my favor !
Joshua 15:23 ( the verse I received ) 23 Kedesh, Hazor, Ithnan,
Kedesh There are three towns named Kedesh in the Bible. The first one is a Canaanite town conquered by Joshua. Another Kedesh is a town in south Judah (Josh 15:23), and a third one is a town in Issachar (1 Chr 6:72).
The name Kedesh comes from the verb (qadash 1990) meaning to be consecrated, hallowed, sanctified.
The name Kedesh means Sacred Place.
(When asked merely if they accept evolution, 45 percent of Americans say yes. The figure is 70 percent in China.) When the movie Jurassic Park was shown in Israel, it was condemned by some Orthodox rabbis because it accepted evolution and because it taught that dinosaurs lived a hundred million years ago—when, as is plainly stated at every Rosh Hashonhan and every Jewish wedding ceremony, the Universe is less than 6,000 years old. [Carl Sagan, _The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark_, p. 325]
I would love to believe that when I die I will live again, that some thinking, feeling, remembering part of me will continue. But much as I want to believe that, and despite the ancient and worldwide cultural traditions that assert an afterlife, I know of nothing to suggest that it is more than wishful thinking. The world is so exquisite with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there’s little good evidence. Far better it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides. [Carl Sagan, 1996 in his article In the Valley of the Shadow Parade Magazine Also, Billions and Billions p. 215]
The politicians and the religious leaders and the weapons scientists have been at it for a long time and they’ve made a thorough mess of it. I mean, we’re in deep trouble. [Carl Sagan, A&E Biography interview]
Life is but a momentary glimpse of the wonder of this astonishing universe, and it is sad to see so many dreaming it away on spiritual fantasy. [Carl Sagan]
In many cultures it is customary to answer that God created the universe out of nothing. But this is mere temporizing. If we wish courageously to pursue the question, we must, of course ask next where God comes from? And if we decide this to be unanswerable, why not save a step and conclude that the universe has always existed? [Carl Sagan, Cosmos, page 257]
Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense. [Carl Sagan]
Many statements about God are confidently made by theologians on grounds that today at least sound specious. Thomas Aquinas claimed to prove that God cannot make another God, or commit suicide, or make a man without a soul, or even make a triangle whose interior angles do not equal 180 degrees. But Bolyai and Lobachevsky were able to accomplish this last feat (on a curved surface) in the nineteenth century, and they were not even approximately gods. [Carl Sagan, Broca’s Brain]
We should be teaching our children the scientific method and the reasons for a Bill of Rights. With it comes a certain decency, humility and community spirit. [Carl Sagan, on secular morality]
One prominent American religion confidently predicted that the world would end in 1914. Well, 1914 has come and gone, and - whole the events of that year were certainly of some importance - the world did not, at least so far as I can see, seem to have ended. There are at least three responses that an organized religion can make in the face of such a failed and fundamental prophecy. They could have said, Oh, did we say ‘1914’? So sorry, we meant ‘2014’. A slight error in calculation. Hope you weren’t inconvinenced in any way. But they did not. They could have said, Well, the world would have ended, except we prayed very hard and interceded with God so He spared the Earth. But they did not. Instead, the did something much more ingenious. They announced that the world had in fact ended in 1914, and if the rest of us hadn’t noticed, that was our lookout. It is astonishing in the fact of such transparent evasions that this religion has any adherents at all. But religions are tough. Either they make no contentions which are subject to disproof or they quickly redesign doctrine after disproof. The fact that religions can be so shamelessly dishonest, so contemptuous of the intelligence of their adherents, and still flourish does not speak very well for the tough- mindedness of the believers. But it does indicate, if a demonstration was needed, that near the core of the religious experience is something remarkably resistant to rational inquiry. [Carl Sagan, Broca’s Brain]
In a democracy, opinions that upset everyone are sometimes exactly what we need. We should be teaching our children the scientific method and the Bill of Rights. [Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan]
It means nothing to be open to a proposition we don’t understand. [Carl Sagan]
There are many hypotheses in science which are wrong. That’s perfectly all right; they’re the aperture to finding out what’s right. Science is a self-correcting process. To be accepted, new ideas must survive the most rigorous standards of evidence and scrutiny. [Carl Sagan, Cosmos television series]
I worry that, especially as the Millennium edges nearer, pseudoscience and superstition will seem year by year more tempting, the siren song of unreason more sonorous and attractive. Where have we heard it before? Whenever our ethnic or national prejudices are aroused, in times of scarcity, during challenges to national self-esteem or nerve, when we agonize about our diminished cosmic place and purpose, or when fanaticism is bubbling up around us-then, habits of thought familiar from ages past reach for the controls.
The candle flame gutters. Its little pool of light trembles. Darkness gathers. The demons begin to stir. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science As a Candle in the Dark]
If we’re capable of conjuring up terrifying monsters in childhood, why shouldn’t some of us, at least on occasion, be able to fantasize something similar, something truly horrifying, a shared delusion, as adults? [Carl Sagan, The Demon Haunted World, p. 109]
If some good evidence for life after death were announced, I’d be eager to examine it; but it would have to be real scientific data, not mere anecdote. As with the face on Mars and alien abductions, better the hard truth, I say, than the comforting fantasy. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World, p. 204 quoted in 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt, by James A. Haught, Prometheus Books, 1996]
If you want to save your child from polio, you can pray or you can inoculate....Try science. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World, p. 30, quoted in 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt, by James A. Haught, Prometheus Books, 1996]
Since World War II, Japan has spawned enormous numbers of new religions featuring the supernatural.... In Thailand, diseases are treated with pills manufactured from pulverized sacred Scripture. Witches are today being burned in South Africa.... The worldwide TM [Transcendental Meditation] organization has an estimated valuation of $3 billion. For a fee, they promise to make you invisible, to enable you to fly. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World, p. 16, from James A. Haught, ed., 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt]
In Italy, the Inquisition was condemning people to death until the end of the eighteenth century, and inquisitional torture was not abolished in the Catholic Church until 1816. The last bastion of support for the reality of witchcraft and the necessity of punishment has been the Christian churches. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World, p. 413, from James A. Haught, ed., 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt, by James A. Haught, Prometheus Books, 1996]
If we long to believe that the stars rise and set for us, that we are the reason there is a Universe, does science do us a disservice in deflating our conceits?....For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science As a Candle in the Dark]
At the extremes it is difficult to distinguish pseudoscience from rigid, doctrinaire religion. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science As a Candle in the Dark]
Avoidable human misery is more often caused not so much by stupidity as by ignorance, particularly our own ignorance about ourselves. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science As a Candle in the Dark]
Think of how many religions attempt to validate themselves with prophecy. Think of how many people rely on these prophecies, however vague, however unfulfilled, to support or prop up their beliefs. Yet has there ever been a religion with the prophetic accuracy and reliability of science? [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science As a Candle in the Dark]
Is it fair to be suspicious of an entire profession because of a few bad apples? There are at least two important differences, it seems to me. First, no one doubts that science actually works, whatever mistaken and fraudulent claim may from time to time be offered. But whether there are any miraculous cures from faith-healing, beyond the body’s own ability to cure itself, is very much at issue. Secondly, the expose’ of fraud and error in science is made almost exclusively by science. But the exposure of fraud and error in faith-healing is almost never done by other faith-healers. [Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science As a Candle in the Dark]

evangelicals don’t know Torah well enough to be theonomists
Evangelicals do not need to be ( Theonomists)”pharisees” as Hart or Macchen for they are as Solomon Beloved of God “ Jedediah’s “ God’s children \o/ .
evangelicals dont know Torah well enough to be theonomists
That is a quote from the 9 Marks interview with Darryl Hart, "Being Faithful in a Secular World". Recommended.
Evangelicals do not need to be ( Theonomists)pharisees as Hart or Macchen for they are as Solomon Beloved of God Jedediahs Gods children \o/ .
You realize, don't you, that you're making no sense whatsoever?
Heh. We agree. ;-D
Once again, you directly assert that the Lord speaks to you, and, in His Name, you assemble semi-random English words as if He uttered them in the order in which they are presented here. These “locutions” make no sense coming from the mouth of anyone, never mind an omniscient God! It doesn’t help your case that “God” seems to speak in English with decidedly poor grammar skills! Putting words into the mouth of God and claiming He literally spoke them is blasphemy, no matter how well intentioned the words might be.
You are either a false prophet or, as Hamish said to “Stephen, the Crazy Irishman” (who also had two-way conversations with God, BTW!) upon first meeting him in the movie Braveheart: “You’re a madman!”
Jesus “ The Cornerstone of the Catholic church , evangelicals and body of Christ , whoa body of Christ evangelicals dont know Torah well enough to be theonomists
Evangelicals do not need to be ( Theonomists)pharisees as Hart or Machen( works)that won’t get you into the kingdom of God only the kingdom of man and man pleasers !
For they are as Solomon Beloved of God Jedediahs Gods children \o/ just like all those that hear his voice in humble abide at Jesus feet doing the Father’s will not mans .
That makes sense huh !

Get a good night's sleep, and try again.
Meanwhile, you might profit from reading "The Addiction to Religious Euphoria", and the various documents linked from that.

FIRE BY NIGHT
“Reflections Upon Reflections” [of The Father’s Heart]
....”You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go”.... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
KORAH’S REBELLION REVISITED: THE DANGER OF IDOLATRY
Words of prophecy:
* “Idols” are anyone or anything that one exalts above Me.
* It has always been My first and foremost desire to fellowship with each one of My children. Did I not create Adam for that very purpose? So you can see that even before the fall of Adam, in his rebellion, I first desired fellowship with My creation above ALL else. It is for this reason that judgement falls swiftly and hard upon those “delegated authorities” who rebel against Me in their heart [through their continual pursuit of self-glory and self-sufficiency] - for, in doing so, they SURELY misrepresent My Character and the deepest thoughts and intentions of My heart towards My precious children. In this most critical hour, all those who are in a position of delegated authority must heed the example of Korah, and those who rebelled with him [Numbers 15:37-16:50]. For truly I say to you, in this last hour, those who “choose” to align themselves with Satan and his lies shall reap the burning fire of My righteous indignation! For indeed I am the same yesterday, today and forever, and in Me there is no variation or shifting shadow, and I shall not deal lightly with those who lead My children astray - away from the intimate fellowship with Me that I so desire to have with each one of them [Jeremiah 23:1-32].
* For one to “succumb” to “peer pressure” is for one to be held captive by a “spirit of idolatry”.
* If any one of My children truly desire to receive all that I have for them then they will have to “systematically” lay down every “idol” in their lives.
“systematic” - organized; a series of orderly actions [actions ordered by the Holy Spirit];
* It is an inherent tendency of the flesh to choose leaders which “they” then set their eyes upon in “worship”, rather than fix their eyes upon Me. It is most important for every member of My Body to abide in “intimate fellowship” with Me [the Word], and thus keep their hearts in tune with all that I desire to accomplish through them - free from the various spirits of idolatry whose main goal is to cause wrong “focus” [allegiance or dependence] in the course of one’s spiritual walk.
* If one fills their lives with “things” and people that are not of Me - and therefore are not “profitable” towards the carrying out of My Will - then, until they “empty themselves” and separate themselves from these idols [which are the clear product of self-desire] I am not able to bless them fully with either the divine connections or the things that are “profitable” for the carrying out of My Will for their life and ministry!
* For My children - My “called out ones” - to develop a close relationship with Me, there needs to be an “initial” separation from all “carnal” [emotional] attachments; for unless My children have put aside “all” of their “idols”, they will never come into the spiritual “positioning” [ascension - abiding] that will empower and enable them to minister the truth in love to all who have crossed - and who will cross - their path.
* One must have a “propensity” for change [yieldedness to My Spirit] if they are to succeed in this final hour. Many of My precious children have “plateaued” in their places of comfort, and unless they forsake the idols that they have affixed themselves to then they will begin to slip further into the darkness that they have opened the door to. Truly I say to you, have I not issued the command, “Little children guard yourselves from idols” [1 John 5:21]? And did not My beloved Son state that if one places anything or anyone above Me that they are not fit to serve in the Kingdom [Matthew 10:34-39]? This is the time wherein I am calling those who truly love Me to forsake every element of procrastination in their lives - for many have buried the revelation that once burned brightly in their heart. But if they will set themselves before Me in the “inner chamber” in this hour I will surely bring all things to their remembrance by My Spirit and, in acting in obedience to His still, small voice, they shall surely gain a swift and superabundant entrance into the fullness of their precious Kingdom-position, in Christ.
“propensity” - a [super]natural disposition; or tendency; inclination towards;
* The only thing that will counteract “idolatry” [the placing of people or things above their relationship with Me] in the lives of My children in this final hour is a heart “wholly” given [Luke 10:27] to My Will. For it is only a heart wholly given that will cause [empower] one to be positioned properly [both spiritually and locationally] so as to not be ignorant of Satan’s schemes - “rising above” them, and victoriously overcoming him at every turn.
....”The LORD also spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel, and tell them that they shall make for themselves tassels on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and that they shall put on the tassel of each corner a cord of blue. It shall be a tassel for you to look at and remember all the commandments of the LORD, so as to do them and not follow after your own heart and your own eyes, after which you played the harlot, so that you may remember to do all My commandments and be holy to your God”.... Numbers 15:37-40 NASB
....”Now Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took action, and they rose up before Moses, together with some of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, chosen in the assembly, men of renown. They assembled together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “You have gone far enough, for all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the LORD is in their midst; so why do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the LORD?”.... Numbers 16:1-3 NASB
....”Then He said to me, ‘Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them. For you are not being sent to a people of unintelligible speech or difficult language, but to the house of Israel, nor to many peoples of unintelligible speech or difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. But I have sent you to them who should listen to you; yet the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, since they are not willing to listen to Me. Surely the whole house of Israel is stubborn and obstinate. “Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. “Like emery harder than flint I have made your forehead. Do not be afraid of them or be dismayed before them, though they are a rebellious house”.... Ezekiel 3:4-9 NASB
....”I have been hurt by their adulterous hearts which turned away from Me, and by their eyes, which played the harlot after their idols”.... Ezekiel 6:9 NASB
....”Therefore, behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes; some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city”.... Matthew 23:34 NASB
The “spirit of idolatry” will always be “allowed” entrance on the ground of one’s desire to serve [worship] “anything” or “anyone” [including themselves] before the Father and His Word [His Will - as revealed by the Holy Spirit]. In other words, if we are not prepared to give our hearts “wholly” to God THEN it is certain that we will allow “ground” [the ground of self-desire] for this spirit to deceive us and, in deceiving us, influence us to worship [serve, give pre-eminence to] “idols” that will, in turn, take us further and further apart from the Father - and His perfect plan for our lives and ministries. The deepest motivation of those who participated in Korah’s rebellion was not only the fact that they, themselves, desired to have a more prominent role in the leadership [and, thus, were jealous of Moses] but also that they reserved the right [in their own thinking] to worship [serve] God as they chose - with no regard to God’s “divine requirement” [Luke 10:27; 1 Peter 1:15-16]. In other words, when God spoke His message through Moses [commanding the people of Israel to remember all His commandments, to do them and not to follow after their own heart and their own eyes, after which they had played the harlot], Korah and the leaders became offended. Why? Because the Word of God spoken through His prophet had cut them to the quick and exposed the deepest thoughts and intentions of their heart - and so, to “justify” their own actions, they were “compelled” to denigrate both the servant of God and the words that were spoken through him.
“denigrate” - to speak damagingly of; criticize in a derogatory manner; belittle; to treat or represent as lacking in value or importance;
TAKING OFFENSE - THE SURE SIGN OF A REBELLIOUS HEART-ATTITUDE
It is only a rebellious [”religious”] people who become offended at the absolute truth of God’s Word and, yet the Father continues to send “His delegated authorities” forth in this hour to minister the deepest thoughts and intentions of His heart - and to expose the wickedness and the sinfulness that have kept the multitudes from the “pure” worship and fellowship that He so desires. In this most critical hour He is calling “all” those of His children who have fallen into idolatry to forsake their idols [and the deceitfulness of sin that can so easily beset them if they allow it to] and humble themselves before Him. For it is only as the children of God truly submit themselves to the authority of God [the absolute truth of God’s Word] that they will come into the place where they are able to fully receive the words spoken by the true delegated authorities - who have been raised up to help them enter into the wondrous inheritance that the Father has provided for them, in Christ. Many, through their foolishness and hard-heartedness, have continued to pursue self-glory and the praises [approval] of men and, thus, they leave the Holy Spirit on the “outside looking in” - having forsaken true [intimate] fellowship with the Father and His Word in the “inner chamber” in order to carry out their own agendas in the midst of God’s people. This has led to much strife [through pride and jealousy] and division in many areas of the church at large - a strife and division that has, for the most part, left them powerless to set the captives free or to defend against the schemes of the Enemy in their midst that are aimed at keeping them under “his” control. Again, in the church [up until this time] many have rejected God’s true “delegated authorities” for exactly the same reasons that the leaders of Israel did, as they continue to “maintain” their desire to worship [serve] God as THEY choose instead of how God has ordained it in this final hour. Thus, they have come to view “anything” or “anyone” outside of their own preconceived notions and mental ascensions to the Word [Will] of God as NOT being from God! In this hour, as the holy fire of God is poured forth through a holy people, it is certain that we will “once again” be able to distinguish those who truly love God and those who do not - those who truly serve God and those who do not [Malachi 3:18]. Therefore, let each and every one of us “allow” the Word of God to do His perfect work in our hearts so that we might ALWAYS be found humbly considering the Will of the Father for our lives - in ALL that we do and say!
....”For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart”.... Hebrews 4:12 The Amplified Translation
Jesus reached out his hand and wrote twice and this was to fulfill Jeremiah 17:13 using the Pharisees when they wanted to stone the woman ,
Jeremiah 17:13 (King James Version)
13O LORD, the hope of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth, because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
Jesus wrote the pharisees names in the dust !fulfilling the above verse !
Even today the pharisees of today are in this same place “ returned to the world they covet !
