The Apple of His Eye…
Part 2 The Mountain of the LORD…
Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. (Zec 8:3) KJV rough [roads made] into smooth roads. 'And all flesh will see the salvation of God!'" [Isaiah 40:3-5], After 7 years of patiently waiting on the Lord Jesus [Mal 3:1] (Luke 3:4-6) Christ, I reminded the Lord how He had said that He would make His eyes my eyes so that I could see what Jesus is about to be revealed and He is calling for a He sees. people who will prepare the way before Him. The Lord wants every mountain and high hill of the church and One week ago, on the 28th of June 2008, while the Holy all mankind to be made level and every valley to be Spirit, through the gift of discernment, was ministering filled in and by His Anointing, which, like water will cut to many people; the Lord Jesus Christ opened my eyes through the dry land, just as was written by the to see into the spirit. I suddenly saw many visions, prophets, John the Baptist, Isaiah and Malachi: “A which were confirmed that day. Many people came voice cries out, "Prepare in the wilderness a road for forward and spoke of the same words or visions, which the LORD! Clear the way in the desert for our God! (Isa the Lord Jesus Christ had shown them that day. 40:3) GNB Seeing into the Spirit…

After 3 days of seeing into the spirit, on the 4th of July Then the Lord took me into the heavens. We passed 2008, on the day of the crescent moon in Jerusalem,
the Lord took me in the Spirit. I was flying with Him, like an eagle, which soars through the heavens. We soared together over mountains and rivers. I saw a river which had cut its way through the mountains. While I was in the spirit, some one came forward and shared a word, which the Lord Jesus Christ had given: “Prepare the way of the LORD; be making His paths straight!" 'Every valley will be filled and every mountain and hill will be levelled, and the crooked [roads] will be [made] into straight [roads] and the

the clouds and travelled to a place, which looked like a great Mountain. Here the Lord Jesus Christ taught me many things about the truth of following and worshipping Him. This Mountain reminded me of the Mountain that the Lord Jesus had showed His servant Rick Joiner, as he had written in his book: “The Hordes of Hell.” In a very short time the Lord Jesus Christ gave me understanding of many scriptures, which I never understood like this before. The Lord explained how we could breakthrough to Him when

we are unable to come to Him. I suddenly understood that the true worshippers must worship God in Spirit and truth, because God is Spirit. Moses met God at a physical mountain and God revealed His Glory also to Him through signs and symbols. The writer of the book of Hebrews explained this spiritual mountain saying: “For you have not come to a mountain being touched and having been burnt with fire, and to blackness and to darkness and to a whirlwind, and to a sound of a trumpet and to a voice of words, which the ones having heard begged [for] a word not to be added to them. For they could not bear the [thing] being commanded, "If even an animal touches the mountain, it will be stoned or shot down with an arrow." [Exod 19:12,13] And so terrifying was the [thing] being made visible [fig., the sight] [that] Moses said, "I am terrified, and trembling." [Deut 9:19] But you have come to Mount Zion and to [the] city of [the] living God, to heavenly Jerusalem and to countless thousands of angels, to [the] festive gathering and assembly [or, church] of first-born [ones] having been enrolled in heaven and to God, [the] Judge of all [people], and to [the] spirits of righteous [ones] having been made perfect, and to [the] Mediator of a new covenant, Jesus, and to [the] blood of sprinkling, speaking a better [thing] than the [blood] of Abel. Be seeing [that] you do not refuse to listen to the One speaking. For if those [ones] did not escape, having refused the One warning [them] on earth, much more [shall we not escape], the ones turning away from the One [speaking] from heaven, whose voice at that time shook the earth, but now He has promised, saying, "Yet once more I am shaking not only the earth, but also the heaven." [Haggai 2:6] Now the [phrase] "Yet once more" clearly shows the removal of the [things] being shaken, as of [things] having been created, so that the [things] not being shaken shall remain. For this reason, [since we are] receiving an unshakable kingdom, let us be having grace, through which we are sacredly serving God in an acceptable manner, with reverence and godly fear. For indeed our God [is] a consuming fire

[or, [is] as to His essence consuming fire]. [Exod 24:17; Deut 4:24] (Heb 12:18-29) In the time of Moses no one was allowed to breakthrough to God, because the price was not yet paid by Jesus Christ, but now God, through the blood of Jesus Christ, the Anointed one, wants all man to breakthrough to Him. A time is now coming when God will not only shake the mountain of Moses, but also all that which we have trusted in. While I was in the Spirit, I realised that there was another heaven or dimension, which is far higher and better than this earthly and perishable world and age. Right at the end of the age, just before the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, God in His mercy, has now opened these things to me also as His apostle and messenger. What is this Mount Zion which Paul spoke about in the book of Hebrews? All the prophets have prophesied about this Mountain of the LORD. Consider the prophet Isaiah who prophesied and said: “Then over Mount Zion and over all who are gathered there, the LORD will send a cloud in the daytime and smoke and a bright flame at night. God's glory will cover and protect the whole city. His glory will shade the city from the heat of the day and make it a place of safety, sheltered from the rain and storm.” (Isa 4:5-6) GNB Even Isaiah knew that the Mountain of the LORD would be a shelter and shade for resting for the people of Israel. “Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.” (Isa 8:18) KJV

Isaiah prophesied about Jesus Christ and those who truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the would come after Him, who would be signs and holy mountain. (Zec 8:2-3) KJV wonders, like Isaiah who walked naked for 3 years. Even the sons of Korah have seen this mountain: The Psalmist also prophesied about this glorious <A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah.> Great is the mountain saying: <A Song of degrees.> They that trust LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be God, in the mountain of his holiness. Beautiful for removed, but abideth for ever. As the mountains are situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, round about Jerusalem, so the LORD is round about on the sides of the north, the city of the great King. God his people from henceforth even for ever. (Psa 125:1- is known in her palaces for a refuge. 2) KJV For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by The ancient ones understood what this mountain together. They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were referred to. They said it was a place where those who troubled, and hasted away. Fear took hold upon them trusted in the LORD God would dwell forever. It was there, and pain, as of a woman in travail. Thou breakest also a place where God would be like One who surround the ships of Tarshish with an east wind. As we have His loved ones. Thus, He would be like a wall of Fire heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of around about them. He would be like a pillar of fire in hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it the dessert. This is the same symbols which God gave for ever. Selah. We have thought of thy Moses and which Isaiah also used saying that He lives lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple. in a Flaming Fire and a dark cloud. According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of This agrees with the revelation which Paul the apostle righteousness. Let mount Zion rejoice, let the also has saying: “…the only One having immortality, daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments. dwelling in unapproachable light,… (1Ti 6:16) Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the ALT towers thereof. Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the And generation following. For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death. (Psa “For indeed our God [is] a consuming fire [or, [is] 48:2-14) KJV as to His essence consuming fire]”. [Exod 24:17; Deut 4:24] (Heb 12:29) ALT But the question is what is this Mountain of the Lord? Even David said about it: “Yet have I set my king All the ancients said this was a the Mountain of the upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: LORD, which was holy and no one who is unclean can the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this come into it. How can they come into it if it was a day have I begotten thee. (Psa 2:6-7) KJV physical mount? Consider the Word of Zechariah the prophet: “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous And for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. Thus saith the LORD; I am <A Psalm of David.> LORD, who shall abide in thy returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his

heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved. (Psa 15:1-5) KJV And <A Psalm of David.> The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

Thus this King of Glory is none other than the same God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the God of Moses, the God of David and all the holy prophets – Jesus Christ. Truly our God is holy and lives in a high and holy place. He needs to be greatly revered, exalted and worshipped in this, His holy mountain: “Exalt the LORD our God, and worship at his holy hill; for the LORD our God is holy.” (Psa 99:9) KJV But what is this mountain of the Lord? This is the Holy kingdom of God. It is the place where God lives, surrounded and worshipped by thousands and thousands of angels in joyful assembly. It is the place where the awesome throne of God is set up. It is built on pillars or principles, which were explained and understood by all the apostles of Jesus Christ.

Jesus had always spoken to us of the secrets or mysteries of the kingdom of God in parables. To those who were His friends He would reveal these things in detail. He said: “No longer do I call you slaves, because the slave does not know what his lord does. David said that we should ascend into this hill or But I have called you friends because all which I mountain of the LORD! How can a man enter a heard from My Father, I made known to you.” mountain if it is not a spiritual mountain? Then David (Joh 15:15) KJV prophesied to another generation that will enter into this great mountain. He also speaks of another day in Jesus loves His true bride and wants to reveal Himself the future, that is, at the culmination of the age of grace, to her. He has tried to explain many things to her, but when we will ask this awesome King of Glory, who live she has remained ignorant, but now a time has come on this holy hill, to come and take His people out of this before the time of the end when He will reveal Himself world at the last trumpet: “Lift up your heads, O ye to mankind in the new way of the Spirit of Jesus Christ. gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the For God is Spirit and His true worshippers must King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? worship Him in Spirit and in truth. Jesus once said: The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in "The Spirit is the One giving life; the flesh does not battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, accomplish [or, benefit] anything. The words which I ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall have spoken to you are spirit and are life! (Joh come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of 6:63) ALT hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah. (Psa 24:1-10) KJV Thus, all that Jesus came to explain is Spirit and if obeyed they will be life to us.

Peter explained it as follow saying: “For this very reason do your best to add goodness to your faith; to your goodness add knowledge; to your knowledge add self-control; to your self-control add endurance; to your endurance add godliness; to your godliness add Christian affection; and to your Christian affection add love. These are the qualities you need, and if you have them in abundance, they will make you active and effective in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (2Pe 1:5-8) GNB This was the same experience that our forefather Jacob experienced when He saw angels going up and down a glorious ladder as was written: “He dreamed that he saw a stairway reaching from earth to heaven, with angels going up and coming down on it. And there was the LORD standing beside him. Jacob woke up and said, “The LORD is here! He is in this place, and I didn't know it!" He was afraid and said, "What a terrifying place this is! It must be the house of God; it must be the gate that opens into heaven." (Gen 28:12, 13, 16) KJV Jacob called it the gates to heaven and the house of God. Jesus said to Nathaniel: “Do you believe just because I told you I saw you when you were under the fig tree? You will see much greater things than this! And he said to them, "I am telling you the truth: you will see heaven open and God's angels going up and coming down on the Son of Man." (Joh 1:50-51) KJV Jesus Christ prophesied to Nathaniel, and all those who would trust and obey the word, that they would see the Son of Man standing at the top of this stairway to God. This is the Way to Jesus our Beloved saviour as Peter said: “For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (2Pe 1:8) KJV

Therefore let us enter this mountain and pavilion of the Lord with righteousness which leads us to His holiness, so that we may be transformed from Glory to Glory with ever increasing glory, becoming like our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. May God bless you on your journey and path of finding the way to the Our Heavenly Father of Glory!
