The New Gentiles And The Next Revelation Of Christ[Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3] [Part 4] [Part 5]
PART III -- The Sorting And Formation Of A New Lineage Of Faith
VII. Receptors And Rejectors Of The Next Revelation
I can't tell you specifically what the imminent next revelation of Christ will entail. However, based on my observation of past prophetic patterns, I can tell you quite a bit about the surrounding conditions that will prevail when it comes. I can tell you who will receive it, who won't, and the nature of the movement this revelation will produce in the earth.
- The Recipients
The essence of the next revelation is that it will be centered on those who have least connection to the church and have been the most removed from the original revelation of God in the west. It will rest on those most hardened to the Christian gospel. As in Paul's day salvation came to those furthest from the God of the Jews, so this next revealing will come to those whom evangelical Christianity has written off as its most bitter opponents: the New Gentiles.
Who then are these New Heathen to receive the New Gospel? We are talking about the dead, amoral, immoral, computer-savvy secular humanists, agnostics, atheists, gay and pro-choice people who inhabit the darkest towers of power elitism: the professors of the ivy-league universities, the conspirers in the closeted halls of government planning the New World Order, and Wall Street's financial architects of world economy.
There is a hidden planting of the Father today, - a sheep seed in the heart of the secular world that the church knows nothing about. It is hidden away in the houses of Rockefeller, Kennedy, world bankers, and government bureaucrats. It is a seed the Lord specifically ordained to be untouched by the trappings of Christianity and its fading gospel message. They are people who have never set foot in a church, nor ever will, except perhaps in a way an ancient Gentile might have occasionally visited a synagogue.
Despite their godless sterile surroundings, God has planted a hunger and gnawing in these remnant Secularists for truth, - a truth which the church does not display, and which their own failed beliefs in moral relativism cannot satisfy. These are a hidden sheephood who know there must be an absolute reality, but they know they haven't found it and they know that, (as the wise of this world can plainly see,) Christianity does not bear it either.
- Who Will Reject the New Revelation, and Why
Have I offended you by the description of the people who are going to welcome the next revelation of Jesus Christ? Aren't these the people who are going to bring in the New World Order and the Mark of the Beast? Aren't they the ones who will reap the ultimate judgment of God as Revelation says? Are these not the mortal enemies of the evangelical church and the Christian gospel?
Absolutely right! These people answer to all these things. That's why we have written them off. They're too smart, and "we know" that God only saves those with little intellect. They're too rich, and of course "we know" God only saves the poor. They're too up on the technological revolution, yet "we know" God is only going to work through those who avoid the latest technology.
But though the mainstream church may not recognize it, God has a different idea about this hidden sheephood. That difference is what will cause many in Christianity to reject the new revelation. Consider:
When the Jews refused the first revelation of Christ, they did so for a number of reasons:
1) the new revelation did not come in a way that they could see maintained the supremacy of Moses,
2) the new revelation did not exonerate their sub-culture before the heathen Roman work nor did it give them that final elusive victory over the Gentiles,
3) the new revelation was received by the very heathens who rejected their sub-culture,
4) in receiving the gospel, the Gentiles did not become Jews as a result, and
5) out of jealousy, the Jews rejected those to whom the powers of God came, powers of which they themselves could only tell past stories, and powers for which the Gentiles never labored through a long cultural history to obtain.
These same factors will be in force at the next revelation and will cause Christianity to reject the salvation of the New Gentiles:
First, the Christians will be unable to reconcile the new revelation of Christ with their interpretation of the New Testament and of the End Times. As well, because the new revelation won't focus on what Christ did 2,000 years ago, it will not have the sound of the classical evangelical message. Therefore it will be rejected as a false gospel.
Second, the new revelation won't vindicate the evangelical sub-culture before the world. Nor will the new power of Christ give Christianity that long awaited victory over the new paganism. Hardly any "kingdom" school of theology that teaches the eventual victory of the church over the kingdoms of this world will be able to accept this new revelation.
Third, the majority of people who receive the next revelation of Christ will be Secularists, agnostics, atheists, New Agers--the greatest opponents of Christianity. Because the church has written off the possibility of the salvation of these people, it will not believe that the message to which they have been converted is of God.
Fourth, these new converts will give up their godless secularism to come to Christ, but they won't be converted to the church as we know it. They won't gather in buildings. They won't even call themselves Christians! They will continue to reject Christian sub-culture with a passion. Yet their lives will bear the clearest image of the Lord Jesus ever seen by mankind. But because they won't be converted to the church, Christianity will reject them and the new gospel.
Finally, the new revelation will infuse these converted humanists instantly with the perfected combined powers of the complete Word and Spirit that all the restorations and revivals since 1517 have labored so long to restore, and still have not brought to perfection. Like the parable of the vineyard workers hired at different times, all the Bible-based and Spirit-based movements up to and including today's Prophetic Movement will reject this new salvation out of shear jealousy of what the New Gentiles have received without having worked for it.
VIII. A New Body For a New Revelation
The prophetic implications surrounding this next revelation of Christ are staggering. This staggering comes because we expect an ultimate restoration of the church of this age. But God is working at establishing an entirely new body and lineage of faith, one which today's church only prefigures.
Wherever there is a new revelation of God, there is a new body of people developed around it, a new lineage of faith established in the earth. That new body transcends the enmity between the old body and its past persecutors to form one new body. We saw how Abraham's revelation led him to transcend the rift between the Shemites and the Canaanites. The first revelation of Christ led to the transcending of the Jews and Gentiles through the church.
So it will be at this next revelation. This time, the enmity between the Christians and the Secularists will be overcome. The new revelation and body will be marked by a number of new realities.
First, the new revelation of God involves the revealing of a new name of God (see Ex. 6:2-3). Through the Old Testament, God was known as Yahweh (derived from YHWH, the unpronounceable sacred name). In the New Testament, we came to know Him as Jesus Christ. Well, at this next revelation of Christ, watch for the Lord Jesus to reveal Himself by one of his many as yet hidden names (Rev 3:12). It is this new name that the converts from the church and the secular world will take together upon themselves.
Second, the new body that forms around the new revelation also receives a new name. In the Old Testament, that body ultimately came to be named Israel, after the grandson of Abraham. In the New Testament, that body became known as the church. Now, at this next revelation, Christ's body will receive yet another new name. It will not be called "the church." Yet, the new name will subsume all the past names of Israel and the church.
(It will be this body that realizes the prophesied restored union of the Jews to the Christians under its umbrella as together they share this next new name. Remember, many many of the greatest secular humanists and agnostics of this day are of jewish heritage who will be instrumental in bringing the Jews into this new revelation.)
- The Next Apostles and Fathers of Faith
When this revelation arrives, it will come first to a remnant among Christians who will become the first apostles to the secular world. These apostles will bridge the gap between the Christian sub-culture and the New Gentiles. Through them, the new lineage will become established. Some will labor more among the Secularists as Paul did. Others will labor more among the Christians. Each set will be working toward the bringing together of the new body. But they will all bear the same new name of the Lord.
Again, it's hard for us to conceive of a new body! After all, "we are it," aren't we? No, we aren't it. We are only one stage in the ongoing development of a people of the Lord through many ages still to come. Yet this is going to be the greatest hurdle for those apostles who are called to labor among the Christians.
At the first coming of the Lord, Peter, James, and John majored in ministering to remnant Jews who were converted. Yet these Jews still tried to hold onto the partiality of being jewish. It was still tough to believe that the Gentiles were not becoming Jews!
In the same way, God will do a great remnant work among the Christians and will raise up apostles to them. But as a new body, they will have to accept that they are not restoring the church nor reinforcing Christianity.
Instead, they will have to leave the churches to live by the new faith, joining together with the new Secularist converts. As Peter, James, and John eventually ministered to all men, so will those apostles who start out in Christianity end up laboring equally among converted Christians and Humanists.
Ultimately, all men will have to leave the church totally behind in one way or other. The works that are built among the Secularists will not have this problem. They will not resemble the church in any way as we know it. Into them many former Christians will flow, but they will not pollute this new work as if to return it to being like the present church.
The works that start among remnant churches meanwhile will begin with a remnant seed possessing the new revelation aided largely by an influx of converted Secularists from without who will bring utter transformation to these churches. However, any attempt to harness the new revelation of Christ to the church will cause such a work to die.
- An Aside: Implications of the Next Revelation for the Northeastern United States and Europe
For generations now, New England, as well as the Northeast in general together with Europe has been written off by most promoters of church restoration since 1850. Except for minor dents by deeper life ministers in the late 1800s, a few new evangelicals in the 1900's, and a scattered faith or prophetic church here or there, these regions have been avoided by all the great evangelists and faith healers. (When's the last time you ever saw Charisma magazine advertise a major conference in New England?)
Nobody in their spiritual right mind wants to come here to minister, never mind live here. Would you? There's a thorough blanket of oppression both over these states as well as Canada's maritime provinces for which anybody bearing the message of the 4 Spiritual Laws is no match. Of all the United States, Christianity has its weakest ghetto here.
I can't think of a single strong church of any stripe in this region (and believe me, I've been around.) The devil's secularist hold has kept all ministry here emaciated, and has locked out everybody else from the rest of the continent from getting in. As for what is here, the outer society doesn't even know the evangelical church exists!
But what the devil has meant as his showcase of the church's defeat and his prototype for the world, the Lord has meant for the protection of a hidden seed who will come forth, untainted by all the pollutions of Christianity--an incubator of a new salvation that will eventually penetrate every secular humanist stronghold through the globe.
Right now, when we look at the Northeast spiritually, we see a burned out field. And that's exactly right. There's nothing, not even grass. All growth has been sterilized. But a burned field is the first sign of Spring! We bum off the dead grass in advance of a new planting. The Northeast is a spiritual burned field, ripe for receiving--not a restoration, not a revival, but a new revelation of the Lord Jesus on which the next age will be established, a revelation to be received and promoted by those who have had less than anyone to do with the church.
We will be utterly surprised by who will receive this revelation. It will be a revelation so powerful that Secularists, including atheists and New Agers, will receive it. Think about it, people from Harvard, Brown, Yale, and Dartmouth will have a burning word and Spirit so powerful that they will take on the New World Order elite single handedly:
- Converted university professors, financial analysts, world government planners will become formidable foes of the great world system they once helped build and which the church could only throw talk-radio stones at. Walking in Paul's steps, they will demonstrate a redeemed intellect as never seen before, enabling them to become the apostolic foundation layers of the new living teaching that will accompany the revelation of Christ. Their past philosophies will be converted to a bedrock Truth that will challenge the knowledge of good and evil in those still mired in the ways of Christianity.
- Converted New Agers, witches, and warlocks will be among the new apostles and prophets of this next revelation. They will defeat the powers of their former comrades in open contests. They will demonstrate powers of the world to come that make all Pentecostal revivals of the last 150 years pale by comparison. Converted ex-Pentecostals and ex-Charismatics will learn from them!
- Converted liberal Democrats, labor unionists, and corrupt politicians will go on to do what the socialists and humanists hypocritically professed to be their social causes, and which the Religious Right didn't give two hoots about. These will outdo the welfare state, bringing education to the poor and freely distributing their wealth with the underclasses.
Even some otherwise irredeemable gays and abortionists will be converted through the new revelation. They will receive a new salvation the power of whose righteousness will answer a lawlessness that Christians could only picket.
