Evangelistically faithful

In Matthew 24:45, the Lord declares the following:

 

"Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?" (Matthew 24:45)

 

The word "faithful" was translated from the Greek word pistos, which, just as in English, is derived from the word for "faith" (pistis in Greek). As we have shared before, the part of the soul that is most directly related to faith is the heart, for it is where it resides. As we have also shared before, the ministerial endowment most directly related to the heart is the evangelistic endowment, for it moves the hearts of men to place their faith on something or someone. Hence, we can conclude that a "faithful" person is one who is constantly responding to God's evangelistic nature, constantly having faith in (i.e. believing) the things and thoughts that God deposits into his heart.

 

The connection between the word pistos and the evangelistic endowment is emphasised by the fact that, out of the 4 Gospels, the one where it appears the most is Luke, which, as we have shared before, is the Gospel written from the perspective of the Evangelistic Ox Face. To gain a better understanding of this connection between pistos and the evangelistic endowment, let us consider the following verse in Luke where it is used, translated as "faithful":

 

"And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities." (Luke 19:17)

 

The phrase "a very little" was translated from the Greek word elachistos, which is the superlative of elachus meaning "short". Interestingly, Luke 19:17's parallel verse in the Gospel of Matthew, Matthew 25:21, uses the word oligos (meaning "few") to express the thought of being faithful over little.

 

"His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." (Matthew 25:21)

 

The fact that the Spirit of God uses elachistos instead of oligos in Luke has spiritual significance. As we have shared before, the evangelistic endowment is related to spiritual "tallness", meaning that evangelists are by nature "tall" and aiming for "tall" things. Therefore, an evangelist must go against his "natural inclination" in order to be faithful about "un-tall" (i.e. "short") things, especially if they are "superlatively short" (elachistos). As we have shared before, the endowment most directly related with "little" things is the apostolic endowment, meaning that the phrase "faithful in a very little" in Luke 19:17 speaks of someone who is responsive to God's evangelistic nature, all while remaining sensitive to His apostolic nature (which focuses on the importance of "little" things).

 

The word "over" in the phrase "authority over 10 cities" in Luke 19:17 was translated from the Greek word epano, which is derived from the words epi meaning "over" and ano meaning "high, up". The fact that the Spirit of God uses epano, instead of just the word epi, emphasises the evangelistic nature of the verse, since it once again points to spiritual tallness (and not just to jurisdictional authority) over a region. This contrasts with the parallel verse in Matthew 25:21, where the Spirit of God does use the word epi in the phrase "ruler over many things".

 

The reference to having authority over "cities" in Luke 19:17 once again points to the evangelistic endowment, since "cities" in Scripture are a spiritual reference to "kingdoms", and, as we have shared before, the evangelistic endowment is one of kingship and conquest. Hence, when the Lord speaks of giving "authority over 10 cities" in Luke 19:17, He is speaking of someone who has been given authority to evangelistically conquer and stand tall over a large region. By contrast, the parallel verse in Matthew 25:21 emphasises "designation" to a post, as shown by the Spirit's use of the phrase "I will make thee" in Matthew 25:21. By contrast, Luke 19:17 says "have thou authority over 10 cities", as if to say, "Go ahead, take them over; conquer them if you wish; they are yours for the taking", just as Jericho was handed over to the sons of Israel.

 

As a parenthesis, it is worth noting that the spiritual tone of Matthew 25:21 is more geared towards rightful assignment than to empowering a great conquest. By contrasting faithfulness over a few things against eventual authority over many things, the Spirit is emphasising how someone who endeavours for righteousness in little things becomes the rightful, best candidate to hold a position where he can continue applying and enforcing righteousness over many things. This correlates with the apostolic, Lion-Face nature of the Gospel of Matthew. Due to their judgement-centric nature, apostles are prone to doing the right thing no matter what, regardless of whether the matter is large or small. With regard to their "evangelising" abilities, apostles tend to convert small numbers of people, but their work lays the foundation for evangelists to come later and convert large numbers of people. Therefore, the Lord is, in Matthew 25:21, saying to the apostles, "Even though you appear weak and small and incapable of having authority over much, your faithfulness in applying righteousness over few things will cause me to expand your realm of influence, for, by your faithfulness, you have established yourself as the ideal candidate to exert your influence of righteousness over much." This corresponds with a person who is promoted to high positions of authority in a company because of his constancy, even if he is not seeking those higher positions or being faithful just to get promoted".

 

Apostolically wise

The word "wise" in the phrase "faithful and wise servant" of Matthew 24:45 was correctly translated from the Greek word phronimos, which is the exact Greek equivalent of the English word "wise". Therefore, it points to the apostolic endowment, since that is the endowment most directly related to wisdom and judgements. This connection is emphasised in the following verse, where phronimos appears translated as "wise men":

 

"I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say" (1 Corinthians 10:15)

 

Interestingly enough, phronimos appears in 9 different verses in the 4 Gospels, appearing 7 times in Matthew and twice in Luke. This is no coincidence, since, as we have shared before, Matthew is the Gospel written from the perspective of the apostolic, Lion-Face. The fact that the only 2 other verse appearances of phronimos are in Luke (amongst the 4 Gospels) indirectly points to its linkage to the word "faithful", since, as we saw above, that word is most directly related to Luke and the evangelistic endowment.

 

From all of the above, we can conclude that the phrase "faithful and wise" points to both the evangelistic and apostolic endowments, which, in turn, points to "angels" since, as we have shared before, angels are apostle-evangelists. Therefore, those who are "faithful and wise" are those believers willing to engage in angelic activity, executing God's apostolic judgements and forging the evangelistic expansion of His Kingdom on Earth.

 

"Male" conquerors of the moon stronghold

The word "servant" in the phrase "faithful and wise servant" of Matthew 24:45 was translated from the Greek word doulos, which, as we have shared before, has the connotation of a "slave" and is directly related to the prophetic endowment of wilful sacrifice. In other words, it refers to believers who are willing to surrender themselves unto God, sacrificing their personal goals and agenda so that God's purposes on Earth may be fulfilled through them, even if it means paying a high, high price.

 

From all of the above, we can conclude that the phrase "faithful and wise servant" actually points to the 3 "male" ministerial endowments:

  • Faithful ➪ Evangelist
  • Wise ➪ Apostle
  • Servant ➪ Prophet

 

This means that a truly "faithful and wise servant" refers to a believer who has fully embraced the "male" nature of the Spirit, living a life that endeavours to submit the "female" soul under the "male" Spirit. This means that it refers to believers who are antagonistic towards the soulish, pastoral matriarchy that dominates the Church and who are constantly engaging in proactive, angelic activity against it, fully aware that the Kingdom of God cannot be manifested on Earth until the pastoral-matriarchy stronghold on the Earth is torn down. The Israelites knew that the first stronghold that had to come down before they could begin their full-blown conquest of the Promised Land was Jericho. In the same way, the latter-day conquest of the Earth by God's remnant requires that the pastoral matriarchy within the Church be torn down. Thus, it is no coincidence that the name "Jericho" literally means "its moon", since, as we have said before, the "moon" represents the soul, whereas the sun represents the Spirit.

 

Currently, the soulish moon dominates the sky over the present-day Church. The moon's light is "kinder and gentler", allowing for enough darkness to carry out soulish activities with no fear of being judged. The sun's light, by contrast, is "harsher" and less "forgiving", exposing the wrinkles of old-age Girgashite traditionalism and the ugly stains of Canaanite anti-righteousness. God's "Sun of Righteousness" is unwelcome in the moonlit, matriarchal Church, for it reveals qualities in God that they would rather ignore:

 

"1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." (Malachi 4)

 

Notice how God's "sun of righteousness" (v2) is mentioned in the context of a "day that burns like an oven", consuming the arrogant like "stubble" (v1), a day when those who "fear His Name" (v2) shall "tread down the wicked" (v3), a day when God's judgements shall finally be remembered (v4), a day that God calls "great and dreadful" (v4), not "happy and pleasant", as most believers would wish, a day when God will smite the earthly with a curse if they are unwilling to yield to the light of His Sun (v6). It is utterly amazing to this writer how most preachers who preach on Malachi 4 are quick to focus on two small parts of this chapter: the "healing" in verse 2 and the "turning of fathers to their children and vice versa" in verse 6. This once again reveals the SSMS syndrome that we have shared on before, a syndrome that the Church operates in as it cherry-picks the parts that they find pleasant to their souls and utterly ignoring the entire surrounding context.

 

If matriarchal believers were willing to embrace the "male" Spirit nature of God, they would realise that the "healing" of verse 2 is not referring to believers being healed from pneumonia and arthritis and that it is instead speaking of the Church being healed from the corrupting spiritual sickness it has suffered from for some 2000 years. Yes, in the latter days, as the Church is finally healed from its spiritual corruption, healings in the natural realm will be manifested on a massive and persistent scale never before seen in human history, but that will be an outgrowth of the deeper restoration that God's remnant crave and that the rest of the Church could not care less about. This is why Malachi 4:2 declares the coming of this healing to those who "fear His Name", for they are the ones who care for it. As this healing comes, the Lord shall attend to the deep wounds of the remnant who have suffered so greatly at the hands of the vicious, externally-loving matriarchal Church. They shall be the first to experience healing in the natural, and, as they are vindicated and raised up to take over, they shall release spiritual and literal healing upon the Church and the entire Earth system. Hence, we can see how most pastors' focus on the word "healing" in Malachi 4:2 is so shallow and out of context that it completely distorts God's intended message.

 

By the same token, the word regarding "fathers and sons" in Matthew 4:6 is taken out of context by matriarchal pastors who see it as nothing more than a gooey, feel-good message of soulish "family reconciliation". The rest of the verse, however, does not convey such a gooey, feel-good message, as shown by its warning that a curse from God looms over those who decide to fight what God is intending to do. Those in the Spirit know that Malachi 4:6 actually refers to the days when those who are supposed to fulfil a "fatherly" role shall finally do so, and that those who refuse "fatherly" actions shall finally be turned towards them. As we have shared before, Hebrews 12 clearly shows that a true "father" carries out discipline, i.e. judgements, on his sons so as to forge a righteous, healthy nature in them. Those who have been supposed to carry out their "fatherly" duty, however, have rejected to do so because they love the soulish affection of others more than they love God's righteous nature. They know that speaking of "judgements" turns the soulish away and that a message of "grace", "prosperity", and "unconditional forgiveness" is more popular and draws bigger crowds. That is why they are willing to turn their brethren into spiritual bastards devoid of fatherly correction, bastards who grow so accustomed to the lack of fatherly correction that they lash out in vitriolic anger at anyone who so much as dares to talk of Fatherly judgements from the "New Testament" God.

 

As shown by Revelation 12, the weak remnant souls who are willing to submit the soul moon under their feet and be covered by the spirit sun are made to suffer great persecution, especially from those who claim to be acting on God's behalf but are actually working for satan:

 

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars" (Revelation 12:1)

 

"And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child" (Revelation 12:13)

[The phrase "man child" was mistranslated from the Greek word arren, which literally means "male" (the word "child" does not appear in the original Greek text). Therefore, arren speaks of the strong, "male" Spirit nature that the woman (i.e. the faithful soul) has brought forth on Earth to rule over the Earth's atmosphere, even as she remains in lowly weakness and under intense persecution.]

 

"I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of satan" (Revelation 2:9)

 

"Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee" (Revelation 3:9)

 

"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake" (Matthew 24:9)

 

"They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service" (John 16:2)

 

The Lord's therapy place

The phrase "hath made ruler" in Matthew 24:45 was mistranslated from the Greek verb kathistemi, which is derived from the prefix kata meaning "according to, throughout" and the verb histemi meaning "to establish". Therefore, we can say that, more than the connotation of "lordship" that the translation "hath made ruler" conveys, kathistemi actually has the connotation of someone who has been set in a position and given the necessary authority in accordance with the breadth of responsibilities that have been assigned to him.

 

Interestingly enough, the word "household" in the phrase "hath made ruler over his household" was translated from a word that is not etymologically related to "house" or "home" at all. In fact, "household" was translated from the word therapeia, which literally means "therapy".

 

The Spirit of God only uses the word therapeia 4 times in the New Testament, once in Matthew 24:45, once in Luke 12:42 (Matthew 24:45's parallel verse in Luke), and in 2 other verses. The first of these 2 verses is the following, where it appears at the end of the verse, translated as "healing":

 

"And the people, when they knew it, followed him: and he received them, and spake unto them of the kingdom of God, and healed them that had need of healing" (Luke 9:11)

 

Notice how the Lord's first focus was on speaking to them "of the Kingdom of God". This goes beyond the mushy, escape-from-hell notions that matriarchals associate with the "Kingdom of God". As Yeshua spoke, He was emphasising the Kingship of God over the souls who were hearing, prompting them to surrender to God's rule. Unlike the Church's matriarchal pastors, Yeshua was less concerned about the souls' temporal needs and more concerned about them surrendering to the reign of God, who is Spirit (John 4:24). After offering the option of submission to God, Yeshua provided natural healing to those who had shown themselves receptive to God being King over their lives. The Lord did not perform His healing indiscriminately, as shown by the fact that Luke 9:11 declares that He healed those who "had need of" healing, and the criteria used to determine this need were Spirit-based, not soul-based.

 

It is also worth noting that there is an important detail that is lost in the translation of Luke 9:11. In the phrase "healed them that had need of healing" at the end of Luke 9:11, the word "healed" was translated from the Greek verb iaomai, whereas the word "healing" was translated from the Greek word therapeia. As we have shared before, the word iaomai speaks of a deeper kind of healing that deals with the (spiritual) roots of the illness, whereas therapeia has the connotation of relieving symptoms. This means that, as the Lord was attending to external symptoms, He was also dealing with the deeper spiritual roots of those ills, roots that had been made "accessible" to His hands after those involved had opened their hearts to the Kingship of God's Spirit over their souls.

 

The only other verse where therapeia is used in all of Scripture is at the end of the following verse, translated as "healing":

 

"In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." (Revelation 22:2)

 

This verse appears in the last chapter of Revelation and is a manifestation that follows from all the judgements carried out on Earth, including the utter banishing of satan and those who enable him. It is only until then that the river appears, along with the tree of life, bringing therapeia to the nations of the Earth. This again emphasises the Lord's focus on removing the spiritual roots of unrighteousness before proceeding with full-blown therapeia, i.e. a full-blown treatment of external symptoms.

 

Now that we have considered the verses where therapeia is used, let us consider the word on its own. The word therapeia is derived from the word therapeuon, which literally means "to serve, to restore to health". Hence, it has a strong connotation of "nursing" someone back to health. As we have shared before, the ministerial endowment most directly related to the "nurse" functionality is the pastoral endowment. Therefore, the word "household", or therapeia, in Matthew 24:45 is related to the pastoral endowment, which provides therapy to the Church's weary souls in order to help them recover from their battles against the enemy and from the damage inflicted by past unrighteousness, whether it be the soul's own unrighteousness (put behind through repentance) or the unrighteous actions of souls around them.

 

As we saw earlier, the phrase "faithful and wise servant" in Matthew 24:45 points to believers who have fully embraced the "male" nature of the Spirit. Therefore, when the Lord speaks of the "faithful and wise servant" being established over His therapeia, He is speaking of the 3 "male" ministries being placed over the "female" pastoral ministry, which goes against the matriarchal Church's tendency to submit the apostolic, prophetic, and evangelistic under the covering of the pastoral endowment. It also speaks of exercising pastoral therapeia from a "male" foundation. In other words, instead of belittling the pastoral when compared with the "male" endowments, Matthew 24:45 speaks of the importance of exercising it without losing awareness of the need for apostolic judgements and evangelistic conquest, along with prophetic sacrifice that is willing to surrender and become a slave of God.

 

As we also saw earlier, the phrase "faithful and wise" also points to believers executing "angelic actions" on Earth. Therefore, the Lord is also speaking in Matthew 24:45 of "angels" ministering to their brethren in a pastoral way. This correlates with passages such as the following:

 

"Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him" (Matthew 4:11)

 

"And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him" (Mark 1:13)

 

The word "ministered" in the 2 verses above were translated from the Greek verb diakoneo, which has the connotation of a waiter who provides others with what they need, as shown in Acts 6:2, where it is used to speak of "serving tables". Therefore, we can say that diakoneo points to the pastoral ministry, since that is the ministry most directly related to serving and providing, i.e. to waiters providing service to patrons. Therefore, we can say that the angels mentioned above came to provide pastoral support to Yeshua's soul after He had endured the wilderness and satan's temptation.

 

This connection between angels and pastoral support is also implicit in the following passage:

 

"22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented." (Luke 16:22-25)

 

It is worth noting that the word "comforted" was actually translated from the Greek verb parakaleo, which, as we have shared before, speaks of prophetic exhortation; this correlates with the fact that John is the Gospel out of the 4 that is written from the perspective of the prophetic, Eagle Face. Even so, it is clear from the passage's context that Lazarus was being provided pastoral rest and comfort after his soul had suffered through a difficult existence. Therefore, it is interesting that the Spirit declares that it was angels who carried Lazarus' soul to that place of pastoral refreshment, which emphasises the subtle linkage that the Spirit of God makes between angels and pastoral ministering.

 

From all of the above, we can conclude that the pastoral word therapeia in Matthew 24:45 speaks of believers with a strong "male" angelic anointing "descending", shall we say, to perform pastoral comforting that is "female" in nature. As they "descend" to perform this "female" functionality, they are to impart from their "male", "angelic", spirit nature to those whom they are ministering pastorally. This means that their "female", "soul-nourishing" work becomes an opportunity to strengthen the "male" spirit nature of those whom they serve.

 

Transcendental angelic support

The connection between "angels" and pastoral ministering also reveals another important spiritual principle, a principle that can be discerned as we once again consider the following passage:

 

"6 And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. 7 And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands." (Acts 12:6-7)

 

Notice how the angel appears inside the room even as the door was closed and guarded on the outside. Notice also how the angel was able to prevent his presence being detected by the 2 soldiers sleeping to each side of Peter. All of this points to angels' ability to project themselves past physical barriers and into the presence of the persons they are sent to, even overcoming the barriers of hindering souls (like the 2 soldiers). This gains greater relevance when considered in the context of the following passage:

 

"34 Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. 37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? 38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? 39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." (Matthew 25:34-40)

 

Notice how this passage speaks of providing for someone who is in lack of something in the natural realm, which once again points to the pastoral endowment. It is worth emphasising that those being provided for are the "little ones" with whom the righteous King identifies, calling them "My brethren" rather than "My subjects". The natural difficulty in identifying these "little ones" stems not from any "sin" or "unrighteousness" in them, but rather from their external weakness. In other words, these are righteous men and women who carry within them the "royal blood" of the righteous King, even when they do not appear to be "in good standing" with the King due to their natural state of weakness and powerlessness. The natural mind is unable to understand that this state of weakness is not the result of "lack of merit" but rather the result of how the soul system is so bent on enabling and exalting the unrighteous, suppressing and attacking the righteous in the process. Why? Because the soulish are naturally inclined to support anyone who enables their soulishness and to vitriolically attack anyone who enables the Lordship of the Spirit over them.

 

It is worth mentioning that the 6 states of lack mentioned by the Lord in Matthew 25:34-40 refer to 3 levels of support that we are to provide to our brethren who are operating in righteousness:

 

  1. Hungry and thirsty

    These speak of provision at the "body" level, i.e. at the level of material needs.

     

  2. Stranger and naked

    These speak of provision at the "soul" level; i.e. they speak of providing for the soul needs that the righteous suffer, especially as they are attacked by the matriarchal system. As upholders of the Spirit over the soul, these men and women become as "strangers" in what should be their own home (the Church), which leads to ostracism and the difficult soul effects that come with it.

     

    In the same way, these believers become uncovered by their brethren (i.e. naked). Anytime that they need someone to vouch for them, all the matriarchals around them take one step backwards and say, "He is no friend of mine; I do not know him; he is on his own". Anytime that they need someone to defend them for their courageous opposition to the soulish system, their matriarchal "brethren" prefer to join the accusers in condemning their actions, declaring them as lacking the "virtues" and "values" that they would like to uphold. This is what is happening, at the time of this writing, with Donald Trump and America's Republican Party. Led by the worthless bastard rience priebus and the traitor paul ryan, Republicans and conservatives recoil in disgust when they hear Trump speak, joining their otherwise-enemies in shaming their own potential nominee. A fool may laugh with soulish scorn at the mere suggestion that Trump is like the poor and weak brethren described in Matthew 25, but it is worth emphasising that, in terms of dirty political clout and support within the Republican Party, Trump is indeed a poor and weak soul, a man ostracised by the Party's elite as someone who does not belong with them because he does not share their corrupt-dealings mindset. He is such a stranger to them that they are willing to uncover and shame him at the slightest opportunity, stripping him of any Party clothing and exposing him to the vicious liberal elements that dominate America's media. If you still doubt any of this, just consider how the Party elite came up with clever schemes to steal delegates away from Trump, all as he watched in powerlessness and as others ridiculed him for not embracing the dirty political tactics that evangelical weasels like Ted Cruz are carrying out. As we shared on Twitter at the end of last year (2015), Trump is being used by God to tempt people into revealing their attitudes towards Him and towards His spirit-centric remnant. Worthless pieces of excrement like r.p. (rience priebus) and the rest of the r.p. (republican party) have earned for themselves God's eternal abhorrence and an eternal shame that they will never be able to shake off. 200 years from now, to be called a "rience priebus" will be the equivalent of being called "dog excrement". If he is indeed "saved", he shall stand in the furthest edges of the human universe, forever banished from coming within 10000 kilometres of God's presence, and anyone who is forced to engage him will feel as someone feels after stepping on dog excrement on the street. This writer apologises for showing restraint in pronouncing God's sentiments towards such scum, but expressing the fullness of God's sentiment would require words and images that would be too graphic for younger audiences.

    {As a parenthesis, it is worth mentioning that the above paragraph was written many weeks ago (around April 2016), some time before God gave Trump a surprise victory in the Indiana Republican primary, which forced his enemies Cruz and Kasich to drop out of the race. As he stood at the podium in Carmel, Indiana, it was more than evident that it was God who was granting him a supernatural victory that no one expected, a victory obtained on the shoulders of a suffering remnant. After this, however, Trump chose to remain on his path of "deal-making" and "reconciliation" with those who supposedly lean to the "right" yet attack him with more vitriol than they would a radical liberal. Yesterday (17 May 2016), Trump committed a "last-straw sin" by allowing himself to be interviewed by the spiritual whore, the Irish (Gad) traitor megyn kelly on her new show on the Fox broadcast network. Instead of shunning her and anything remotely related to the Fox News Channel, he has continued to reach out to them all, to the point that he was willing to give megyn kelly's new show a big ratings boost, even after she has openly unleashed snarky, vitriolic, and pre-planned attacks against him. Prior to this, it was reported that he had held a meeting with another Irish (Gad} traitor, little paul ryan, even after he had publicly denigrated him a few days earlier. By reaching out to these Jezebelian Irish whores, Trump is not winning them over to righteousness. There is no repentance coming out of these animals' mouths. They are only using Trump to position themselves for the future, exploiting him for their personal whorish benefit, yet Trump refuses to understand this. As we shared in the last few tweets we posted in 2015, Trump had already lost a great deal spiritually for pursuing this path of "reconciliation", reviving those whom God was killing through him. His presidency had already been stripped of much spiritual glory, and his recent willingness to exalt the unrepentant Gadite Jezebel has eliminated him from being a full-blown remnant believer and a president of transcendental impact. He will still act as a measuring rod whom God will use to justify or condemn many on the basis of how they react to him, but he, in and of himself, will not achieve the spiritual standard that he is carrying over him and by which those who attack him are judged.}

     

  3. Weak and in prison

    These speak of provision at the "spirit" level. A person may be provided for materially, and he may also enjoy an acceptable measure of soul support, such as a loyal family that makes sure that he will not feel like a stranger or feel uncovered when attacked by his enemies. This material and emotional support, however, falls within the category of "needs" and does not include one's "wishes" and "desires". As much as one's basic "needs" are fulfilled, a person's sense of fulfilment remains minimal unless he can expand beyond his realm and conquer. Such expansion is difficult, however, when the person is in a state of weakness or when he finds himself forcefully restrained by difficult circumstances that have somehow been placed around him (i.e. in "prison"). Thus, when a righteous angel ministers to the "weak" and "imprisoned", he or she is helping him to overcome the limitations that prevent him exercising spiritual expansion and fulfilling the righteous desires of his heart. Even if such a person continues to appear weak and a prisoner after the angelic ministration, it is a spiritual truth that the ministered person has been enabled to go beyond the limitations that chain him and to carry out mighty feats in the Spirit, feats that shall be manifested and rewarded in the latter days, when all that is hidden is finally revealed. After such a ministering, the wishes and desires in the person's heart begin to be fulfilled. This happened in a literal sense when Peter was released from Herod's imprisonment. He was able to go out and continue his evangelistic work, his enemy Herod was given a death sentence and defeated (Acts 12:20-23), and he was allowed to speak one more time in the book of Acts (Acts 15:7-21) before the brunt of the apostolic work was fully handed over to Paul (for unrelated reasons that began in Acts 6).

 

There are deeper levels of understanding embedded within the 6 states of lack listed by the Lord in Matthew 25:34-40, but they fall outside of the scope of this posting. For now, it is worth emphasising that the Lord has given us the spiritual ability to provide pastorally for each of these 6 lacks in the lives of remnant believers all over the world. If you embrace God's "male" nature and begin to carry out God's "angelic actions" on Earth, you will become equipped to transcend physical limitations, like an angel. You will be able to project yourself spiritually and enable literal provision in these 6 areas in the lives of God's remnant.

 

Service that stoops down to look

The connection between angels and pastoral service is also subtly present in the following passage:

 

"11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into." (1 Peter 1:11-12)

 

The word "minister" in verse 12 was translated from the Greek verb diakoneo, which, as we shared above, is directly related to the pastoral endowment. Notice how the Spirit of God uses diakoneo to speak of people serving others without serving themselves, which runs contrary to the nature of matriarchal pastors, who always serve others with the intention of possessing their souls' loyalty, meaning that, at the end of the day, they are in truth serving themselves. As we have shared before, angels are "soulless spirits", meaning that they have no interest in gaining soul communion from the spiritual work that they perform. This is why angels can perform pastoral work without any hidden agenda, serving others without seeking to benefit themselves. This is the reason why the Spirit of God mentions "angels" out of nowhere at the end of verse 12 right after having mentioned people diakoneo-ing with no self-benefit.

 

There is a deeper principle in the passage above, however, and it lies inside the word "look" at the end of verse 12, which was translated from the Greek verb parakypto. Interestingly enough, this verb is only used in 5 verses of Scripture. The first 3 times parakypto appears, it is used in the context of people "stooping down" to behold the empty tomb of the resurrected Yeshua (Luke 24:12, John 20:5, John 20:11). The 4th time it is used, right before 1 Peter 1:12 above, is in the following verse, translated as "looketh":

 

"But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed." (James 1:25)

 

Notice how parakypto is used in the context of someone who is drawn to the "perfect law of liberty", which points to the New Covenant, where believers are free to have direct interaction with God Himself and where believers are free to expect great manifestations of the Spirit through them (Acts 2:17). This state of possibilities has been made possible through Yeshua's death and resurrection, as emphasised by the verses where the Spirit of God uses parakypto prior to James 1:25.

 

In light of the above, consider now the following verse:

 

"34 And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage: 35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: 36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection." (Luke 20:34-36)

[The word "children" is a poor translation of the Greek word huios, which actually means "son" and in no way denotes child-like "smallness" or incomplete maturity]

 

Notice how the Lord declares that the sons of the resurrection are like angels. This reveals that, as we parakypto the perfect law of liberty and Yeshua's resurrected nature, we begin to act more and more like angels. Considering that James 1:25 above emphasises people who put into practice the perfect law of liberty, we can conclude that James 1:25 points to the believers who not only accept the law of liberty as a "theoretical truth" but also act on it, using their New-Covenant freedom to carry out angelic actions in the spirit realm in order to enable the Kingship of God on Earth. Fellow believer, if you wish to manifest your angelic nature, keep "stooping down" to parakypto the resurrected Lord's empty tomb. Keep looking down into your heart and realise that the Lord God's resurrected nature is inside of you, and allow yourself to be moved by the perfect law of liberty that has been activated in your life now that you are a son or daughter of the living God.

 

Teacherly nourishment

Now that we have considered the word therapeia ("household") in Matthew 24:45, let us consider the word "meat" in the phrase "over his household to give them meat". The word "meat" was translated from the Greek noun trophe, whose most exact translation would be "nourishment". In other words, more than speaking of satisfying a short-term physical need, trophe has the connotation of providing something that produces long-term benefits. To get a better understanding of trophe, let us consider the following passage, where it appears in verse 14, translated as "meat":

 

"12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." (Hebrews 5:12-14)

 

Notice how trophe is used in the context of teacherly provision. Notice also that it is used to refer to strong, mature nourishment, as opposed to infantile basics. Notice also that this mature nourishment results from providing "word of righteousness" (v13). Righteousness is strongly linked to judgements, since judgements are the means to separate right from wrong. Hence, "righteousness" is most directly linked to the apostolic endowment of wisdom and judgements. This connection to the apostolic is emphasised by the fat that the word "word" in "word of righteousness" was translated from the Greek word logos, which, as we have shared before, speaks of apostolic judgements. From all of this, we can conclude that the teaching embedded in the word trophe has a strong apostolic nature, meaning that it is substantial, maturity-inducing nourishment because it is full of apostolic wisdom that fosters a judgement-making nature in those who are fed it.

 

As we have shared before, the teaching endowment is a "female" endowment, meaning that Matthew 24:45 is once again speaking of "male", spirit-centric angels carrying out a "female" functionality. Because of their submission of the soul to the spirit, these "angels" are better equipped to provide teaching that is not tainted by pastoral, anti-judgement contamination, teaching that contains a strong dosage of "male" apostolic wisdom that is foundationally strong and uncompromising.

 

The phrase "due season" at the end of Matthew 24:45 was translated from the Greek word kairos, which, as we have shared before, speaks of spiritual doors of opportunity and to timing that is furthered by prophetic actions on Earth. As opposed to chronos time, which ticks on regardless of anyone's actions, kairos time only ticks forward when God's people act prophetically and carry out the necessary actions on Earth, fully aware that the Lord's salvation of the Earth is "near", within reach of those willing to seize it and release it into the Earth.

 

In conclusion, we can say that the Lord points to all 5 ministerial endowments in Matthew 24:45:

  • ... to the evangelistic endowment in the word "faithful"
  • ... to the apostolic endowment in the word "wise"
  • ... to the prophetic endowment in the word "servant" (or "slave", doulos)
  • ... to the pastoral endowment in the word "household" (or "place of therapy", therapeia)
  • ... to the teacher endowment in the word "meat" (or "nourishment", trophe)

 

In Matthew 24:45, the Lord is therefore speaking of His "male", spirit-centric angels carrying out "female" service in His therapeia or "place of therapy", providing apostolically-disinterested and prophetically-sacrificial pastoral service, as well as providing nourishing teaching that is full of apostolic wisdom and prophetic fullness, awakening believers to the doors of opportunity that are there to be seized evangelistically.

 

The fact that the Lord phrases Matthew 24:45 in the form of a question, asking "Who shall be like this?" reveals the fact that such believers are indeed hard to find due to the soul's matriarchal domination of the Earth. The Lord is broadcasting the question out into the spirit realm, and He is waiting for someone to say, "Here I am, Lord, send me":

 

"6 Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar: 7 And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. 8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me." (Isaiah 6:6-8)

 

Conquering to teach prophetically

Even though this series of postings focuses on Matthew 24, and even though this posting has focused on Matthew 24:45, it is important to make a "temporary digression" and briefly consider Matthew 24:45's parallel verse in the Gospel of Luke:

 

"And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?" (Luke 12:42)

 

Even though this verse looks very similar to Matthew 24:45, and even though it uses almost the same words in the original Greek text, it contains two different words in the original text that give it a very different spiritual texture. One of these words is oikonomos, translated as "steward", which differs from the word doulos used by the Spirit in Matthew 24:45. The word oikonomos is derived from the word oikos meaning "house" and nomos meaning "law". Hence, it has the connotation of a person who sets the rules in a home environment. As you may have already imagined, the English word "economy" is directly derived from oikonomos. Therefore, it is safe to infer that oikonomos is strongly related to administrative duties, as when a person administers a household's finances and ensures that they are properly spent in the necessary areas. As we have shared before, the endowment most directly related to attention to details and to the frugal and efficient use of resources is the teacher endowment. Thus, we can conclude that the word oikonomos most directly points to the "administratively-ideal" teacher endowment, which takes from the repository of laws and wisdom it acquires from the apostolic endowment in order to administer an environment.

 

Having said this, there is another, more subtle, side to oikonomos that is worth considering. This comes from considering the other places where oikonomos is used. The next time oikonomos is used after Luke 12:42 is in the following verse, where it is again translated as "steward":

 

"And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods" (Luke 16:1)

 

Notice how this verse speaks of a rich man who has delegated control of his estate to his oikonomos, meaning that, for all intents and purposes, the oikonomos was like unto the owner of everything when the rich man was away. In other words, in the day-to-day operations of the household, the oikonomos basically wielded the same power and authority that the rich man himself had. This correlates with the following passages:

 

"39 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: 40 Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou." (Genesis 41:39-40)

 

"1 It pleased Darius to set over the kingdom an hundred and twenty princes, which should be over the whole kingdom; 2 And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage. 3 Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm." (Daniel 6:1-3)

 

As can be seen, the role of oikonomos has a strong connection to kingship, for an oikonomos at his highest level becomes like an "acting king". This means that the role of oikonomos requires an impartation of the evangelistic endowment, since that is the endowment most directly related to kingship and conquest. This connection between oikonomos and the evangelistic endowment is reinforced by the fact that, out of the 10 times that oikonomos appears in Scripture, it appears the most times (4 times) in the Gospel of Luke, which, as we have shared before, is the Gospel written from the perspective of the Evangelistic, Ox Face. Interestingly, oikonomos does not appear in any of the other 3 Gospels, having its first appearance outside of Luke in the following verse, translated as "chamberlain":

 

"Gaius mine host, and of the whole church, saluteth you. Erastus the chamberlain of the city saluteth you, and Quartus a brother." (Romans 16:23)

 

Notice how oikonomos is linked to the word "city" in the passage above. Cities in Scripture are a figure of kingdoms, which once again points to the evangelistic endowment of kingship and conquest, since evangelists are the ones best equipped to establish cities and have dominion over them.

 

From all of the above, we can therefore conclude that the word oikonomos used by the Spirit in Luke 12:42 (in place of the word doulos used in Matthew 24:45) points to a fusion of the teacher and evangelistic endowments. Whereas the Spirit sequentially points to the 5 ministerial endowments in Matthew 24:45, He chooses to de-emphasise the prophetic endowment in Luke 12:42 by replacing the prophetic word doulos with a teacher-evangelist word. There is a spiritual reason for this, as we shall see below.

 

Besides replacing doulos with oikonomos, the Spirit also replaces a second word in Luke 12:42. Whereas the Spirit uses trophe ("meat") in Matthew 24:45, He uses the word sitometrion, translated as "portion of meat", in Luke 12:42. This word is derived from the Greek words sitos meaning "wheat" and metron meaning "measure". As we have studied before, wheat is most directly linked to the prophetic endowment, and the concept of "measurement" is most directly related to the teacher endowment, since that is the endowment most directly related with evaluating and testing and with maximising efficiency, which requires a propensity for measuring. Thus, the word sitometrion (just like oikonomos) points to 2 endowments, in this case, the prophetic and the teacher endowments.

 

As we have shared before, the perfected evangelist becomes a teacher, and a perfected teacher becomes a prophet. Hence, the word oikonomos points to an evangelist who has allowed himself to become a teacher, and the word sitometrion points to that teacher allowing himself to become a prophet. All of this gains greater perspective as we consider the following passage:

 

"1 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. 2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. 3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem." (Isaiah 2:1-3)

 

Notice how this passage speaks of the "mountain of the Lord's house" being "established in the top of the mountains" (v2). The "mountains" speak of a stronghold being established in the spiritual atmosphere, and, as we have shared before, strongholds point to the Amorite spirit in a negative sense and to the evangelistic endowment in a positive sense, which, in turn, point to spiritual kingdoms. Hence, the Spirit of God is speaking of the Lord's Kingship being established over the Earth. This connection to evangelistic kingship is emphasised by the fact that Isaiah is called "the son of Amoz" in verse 1, given that "Amoz" means "strong", which points to evangelistic strength.

 

{As a parenthesis, it is worth mentioning that the 4 "major prophetic books" correspond to the 4 Spiritual Faces: Isaiah is an Evangelistic Ox book, Jeremiah is an Apostolic Lion book, Ezekiel is a Prophetic Eagle book, and Daniel is a Man-Face book}

 

Considering that Isaiah 2:1-3 is written in the context of God's Kingship being established on Earth, it is interesting to consider that Isaiah 2:3 speaks of the nations flocking to the "mountain of God", asking to be taught His ways. This means that God's evangelistic stronghold is to become a teacher outpost from which God's truth will flow. This reveals an important spiritual principle: true evangelistic kings turn the kingdoms that they establish into places from which new ways and new systems are taught. This is why the true great conquerors in history always establish strong educational systems in the kingdoms that they forge. Consider Alexander the Great, for example, who established Alexandria as an outpost that went on to concentrate the most advanced knowledge of its day, and whose kingdom imbued its conquered nations with the Greek culture and way of thinking, laying the necessary foundation so that the New Testament could be written in Greek and understood by a wide portion of the Earth's population centuries later. This means that Alexander the Great's direct and indirect effects on education enabled the future flow of spiritual things throughout the areas that he conquered, which points to the prophetic quality of Alexander's education-affecting work.

 

Consider also Napoleon, who instituted educational reforms throughout the European nations that he conquered. As indicated on wikipedia.org, Napoleon established a well-organised system of secular and public education that removed the burden of stale religious traditions from France's educational system, producing an education engine in France that outperformed the rest of Europe, prompting others to emulate it. Hence, it can be said that Napoleon's educational reforms also had a lasting prophetic effect, for they helped to eliminate the last strongholds of anti-prophetic, Girgashite influence that the catholic Church had on European education.

 

In short, a true evangelist sees the kingdom that he builds as an opportunity to establish a vast and high-impact educational system that will strongly influence the lives of those within the conquered territories. In doing so, the strong-by-nature evangelist perfects his endowment by entering into the realm of the weakest ministry, the teacher endowment. Ironically, as he does this, the true evangelist helps to perfect the teacher endowment by enabling it to reach a prophetic dimension.

 

As we saw earlier, Matthew 24:45 delineates the 5 ministerial endowment in a very distinct, sequential fashion. Luke 12:42 also points to the 5 ministries, but it does so in a more "roundabout" away in order to highlight the evangelist-teacher-prophet triangle:

  • The evangelistic endowment is directly referred to in the word "faithful"
  • The apostolic endowment is referred to in the word "wise"
  • The teacher and evangelistic endowments are referred to through the word "steward" (oikonomos)
  • The pastoral endowment is referred to in the word "household" (or "place of therapy", therapeia)
  • The prophetic and teacher endowments are referred to through the word "meat" (sitometrion: sitos pointing to the prophetic and metron to the teacher ministry)
