Good morning guys, thanks for the prayers
I love you all, my net family.
First of all, kudos for Beloved Servant for finding that link for me to use.
Second, no one has to believe me, but this is a true story, and those of you who have heard it before, please bear with me.
When I first came to the Lord 23 years ago, and isolated myself as far as reading materials to a Strong's and Nave's study bible for the first two years of my walk, spending hours upon hours every day pouring thru the scriptures, and looking up the original language. The things that Eby talks about, HE taught me during that first year alone with Him and the Book.
In fact, He taught my friend and I together, but I had no phone at the time and so wouldn't talk to her for a week or two in person, and to our pleased shock, found that He would teach us the SAME THINGS, every single week, but independent of one another, and in different parts of scripture.
Now the funny thing is, we thought we were the only ones He was teaching these things to, until my concerned aunt, sent me a book some woman wrote about cults. As I went thru the book, she listed names, and what each one taught as the foundational beliefs of their ministries.
I finally came to one Kelly Varner, and read all his foundational beliefs. With each one I was saying, "Yeah, God taught me that, that's ok." So with a shock, I realized she was saying my friend and I were were a cult, based on what HE had taught us!
So I called my friend up and said, "I have good news and bad news; which one do you want first?"
She said, "Let me hear the bad news."
I said, "The bad news is, according to some woman who wrote this book my aunt sent me, we're a cult. I don't understand. How can we be a cult if we have no followers???"
She said, "Give me the good news, then."
I said, "The good news is, God is teaching this stuff to someone else; now we just have to find some woman named Kelly Varner!" (turns out Kelly was a man
Now some things have been expanded for me in the years since, as recently as this summer, but the core principles remain the same. Each revelation from God will always build on the last revelation from God, IF indeed it was a revelation from God.
The reason things don't "line up" at times, is because we have unconsciously accepted some "revelation" from men that was NOT a revelation from God, and so the True Builder rejects the "stone" that was laid.
This is because it does not fit the pattern shown Moses in the mount, OR because it is a true layer or course of "stones" (remember the PRIESTS had COURSES?), BUT it is out of season for the hearer at that time, so He will not quicken it to them yet.
This is true for any revelation, and is the reason why many don't receive UR at this time as well, because the layer of understanding they need to receive it, has not been laid yet.
A city is multiple habitations, and we ARE that city, ie. multiple habitations of Him, and that city has walls, made of stones, laid one layer at a time.
Now man taught us to keep cattle (things yoked to the flesh realm that do works, as opposed to the Spirit whose yoke is light/understanding) from our youth, so it is always a good idea IMO to ask the Lord to cleanse us of any man-made idols we were "fed" along the way, that neither see, nor hear, nor speaks to us the way the Spirit does.
