As the crystal Waters from the threshold of the throne of God continue to ceaselessly flow, the father of good and perfect lights (God’s New Testament Gifts To New Creation Souls - Jam. 1:17/2Cor. 5:17) continues to deepen the saints in the syllabus and nucleus of Faith and love that will reproduce the image of His Son (perfect light –Heb. 1:3/Rev. 21:23) in us and bring about the Lord’s many appearances (Heb. 9:28/2Tim. 4:8/Tit. 2:13/Acts 1:3/Rev. 1:7), long before his second coming (Matt. 24:29-31/1Cor. 15:52/1Thes. 4:16/Zech. 9:14).
- Blessed are the EYES that SEE what the Spirit is SAYING to the churches (Hab. 2:1/Matt. 13:16)
- Blessed are the EARS that HEAR the frequencies of the PROPHETIC TESTIMONY OF JESUS being trumpeted from the throne unto many people, and nations, tongues, and kings. (2Pet. 1:19/Rev. 10:11/12:11)
- Blessed are the HEARTS that would COMMUNE with such COMMUNICATIONS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS until they become FAITHFUL KEEPERS of the SAYINGS of the LITTLE BOOK (Rev. 1:3/10:10/22:7) that’s hidden within the super epistle called the BOOK OF REVELATION
The attached is meat in due season (Ps. 104:27), painstakingly put together for those who have been blessed with a hunger and thirst for ‘good things to come’ (Jn. 16:13/Heb. 9:11/Matt. 6:33)
Ministration #4 (Attaining the Perfect Light)
Text: Rev. 1:16-18, 22:8-9
In this scripture, we see the progression in meekness of John the apostle. Firstly, after he saw the angel who was fully representing/signifying the Lord’s Person, John fell down at his as one dead (Rev. 1:17). His appearance speaks of the Lord. He was not only sent to deliver a message, but to reveal the message.
That angel was a sign of both the Person who sent him, and the message he was sent to give, and so he had the ability to manifest the Person of the Lord, as well as reveal to John the message which the Lord had sent through him. He had a sword in his mouth that represents the Lord’s two-edged sword which holds custody of the Divine will. The Divine Will is also the testimony of Jesus and the primary work of the testimony of Jesus is to slay us. Every encounter we have with the Divine Will or Testimony of Jesus via the spirit of prophecy slays us, that is the reason why John was slain by that sword (Heb 4:12).
Rev 19:9-10 And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
Here is another level of meekness that John came into: he fell again at the angel’s feet to worship. After all these slayings, in chapter 21, he was ushered into the new heaven and the new earth. NO CREATURE CAN ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD EXCEPT HE IS SLAIN. (Rev. 13:8)
Rom. 8:36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
The essence of the testimony of Jesus (the will of God) is to slay man and raise God in the soul. This is clearly revealed in the experiences that John had by this encounter. Before he met with that angel at the Island of Patmos, he had been dying and he had come into some levels of death, but the encounter at Patmos was designed to finally annihilate him. When he returned from the Island of Patmos, he was called ‘John the divine’. There was nothing of man in him; he had been slain completely. He had come into all meekness and all lowliness, with no iota of the dragonic nature left.
Isaiah 14:13-14 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Satan’s fall started from a thought (Isa. 14:13-14). Certain transactions were going on in his heart though he did not utter them, but in the realm of the spirit, our hearts thoughts speak louder than what our lips utter. That is why Jesus said, ‘I am meek and lowly in heart’ (Mat. 11:29). Satan had intentions which he did not verbalise, but God can x-ray the heart. He is the One that tries the reins and the heart.
From Isa. 14:13-14, we can see that the word ‘I will’ speaks of the will of Satan. It shows a nature that is elevated in itself, self-seeking. This is contrary to God’s nature. For instance, when God was going to create man, He said, ‘Let us’. God is meek. Jesus says of the Holy Ghost, ‘He will not speak of Himself...’ and Jesus Himself could do nothing except that which He saw His Father do. We also see in the holy Scripture that the Father handed over all judgment unto the Son. These beings do not seek their own; they are selfless and depend on one another. That is their civilization, and if they are like that, we ought not to be different.
The philosophy of ‘I will’ is of Satan. That is what he sells, and that is what he has used to train man. To varying degrees, every man on earth is self-seeking, self-conscious, self-elevated, self-dependent. This nature is anti-God because it cannot do God’s will, and Satan knows it, that is why he floods the earth with the philosophy of ‘I’. It is so obvious that everything on earth is about me, myself and I. Even we believers are not exempted; we seek God for our own gain.
That kind of nature that is so focused on self is that of a stiff necked soul which cannot yeild to God. In the Old Testament, the Israelite were called, ‘a stiff necked people’. That is the work of the wicked one. He has erected man (homo-erectus) so that man cannot bow and as a result, man cannot pay obeisance, he cannot worship and that is the philosophy of Satan.
Isa. 14:15 Yet thou (Satan) shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
Though man has bought this Satanic philosophy, the Lord is now bringing salvation to man. He is causing this prophecy of Isaiah to be fulfilled in us and in our time. God is cutting down those ‘I’s in our souls by the sword of the Spirit so that this evil might be treated. The Lord Jesus is gradually taking us to a place where we will no longer die but live forever more, and it is the activity of the sharp two-edged sword coming out of His mouth that will bring this to pass. God will increase that activity until all “I’s” are cut down and we will narrowly look at Satan (Isa. 14:16) and say: ‘are you the one that did weaken the nations?’ Amen.

Ministration #5 (Attaining the Perfect Light)
Rev. 22:12-14 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
Jesus says, ‘I am the Alpha and I am the Omega, the first and the last’. The concept we have about the first and the last is that, He is the One who goes before us and the One who is behind us. It’s good to know He is always there to protect us, but that is not exactly what the Spirit is trying to communicate in the book of Revelation
Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the End, First and the Last, are descriptions of a particular kind of God’s work which Jesus is. Jesus is the alpha work and the omega work of the Father. He is the beginning and the end of God’s work.
Works are done by revelation knowledge. Revelation is simply understanding. When Christ is being unveiled, man begins to diminish, because man must decrease until he is no more. Christ must increase until He becomes the all in all. THAT IS WHY SOME PEOPLE DO NOT LIKE STAYING AROUND MINISTRIES THAT ARE FOCUSED ON THE REVELATIONS OF JESUS, BECAUSE IT WOULD TAKE THEIR LIFE FROM THEM.
Man wants to remain. He does not want to give way, but man is cursed (i.e. limited) with the nature of sin, and the only way that curse can be taken away is when the man is slain, and the new Man Christ is built in his place. It is only in the newness of life that a man can remain. Anything that is old is cursed to pass away because it must be Christ and Him alone.
He says, ‘I am the Alpha and the Omega’. That means in Him is both the beginning light (the alpha light) and the ending light (the omega light). That is why the Bible says, ‘All the promises of God are in Him yea (the beginning) and amen (and the end). The alpha and omega light can also be called the good light and the perfect light (James I:17), or the good word and the word of oath. That is all that God is made up of. In the revelation of Him, there is the beginning and there is the end.
THE BEGINNING OF HIM IS DESIGNED TO BEGIN THE END OF MAN WHILE THE END IS TO FINISH MAN FINALLY. GOD’S INTENTION IS TO COMPLETELY ERASE MAN. THAT HAS BEEN THE WARFARE, AND THAT IS THE REASON FOR THE ALPHA LIGHT AND THE OMEGA LIGHT.
Any other work that is not initiated by alpha light is no work. Work here is not that which a man can do for God, it is that which God does in a man. On earth today, men are being worked upon by different spirits with all kinds of lights, and they are not even aware of it.
There are many things that men have understanding of, but few have the understanding of Christ which transforms a man into the image of Christ (Eph. 1:16-17). There are revelations even of things in the realm of the spirit which men hold, but actually those are not the unveiling of Christ because they do not operate by the principle of Christ.
There are certain lights that can raise a man and such man would be glorious according to the definitions of this world. That glory is a work wrought in that man by reason of his interaction with certain lights, but no matter how glorious a man appears on the outside, if he is not the work of God, such would pass away because there is no other work except that which God has done. Jesus puts it this way to the Pharisees, ‘Every tree that has not planted by my Father will be uprooted’.
Any work that is not wrought by the revelation of Jesus Christ is unacceptable to God, and such will crumble, it’s only a matter of time.
Rev 3:2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
The saints in Sardis were not perfect before the Lord, meaning that they came into good works, which is the beginning of the revelation of Jesus. That revelation had accomplished and wrought some works inside of them but they had not yet come into the omega work.
THE ALPHA WORK IS A GREAT EDIFICE. THAT IS WHAT MAKES UP THE EPISTLES WRITTEN TO THE GENTILES. Paul began to pray for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him because the Ephesian church had crossed into this alpha light, and some work had started in them (Eph. 1:16:18). HOWEVER, GOD EXPECTS SUCH SAINTS TO CONTINUE UNTIL THEY GET TO THE FINISH (OMEGA) BECAUSE THE STANDARD IS CHRIST, AND CHRIST IS BOTH ALPHA AND OMEGA.
WHAT THE LORD IS DEMANDING FROM OUR GENERATION IS BOTH THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA LIGHT. HE WANTS TO BRING US INTO PERFECTION. He cannot bring us into perfection when our past spiritual attainments remain our reference point. Most of the time, when He speaks to us, we interpret it according to what we see another person do, but the Lord is changing things. The order of spiritual operations is being defined strictly according to the already laid down pattern, which is Christ, the Alpha and the Omega.
God’s desire is that we become like His son, and this desire has been birthed in the hearts of diligent seekers all over the world. All we want is to inherit Him and be conformed to His image. When God begins a good work, He continues until He brings it to perfection because He is faithful to finish it.
Sometimes, we think that we have heard it all, and we stop journeying, but we ought not to stop until we enter God’s rest, which is the omega light. You may think that your works are good. The Sardis church had a report of being alive because they were a church with access to revelations, but by the Lord’s judgment, they were dead. As long as they had not crossed into omega work, they still had some dead things in them, and even some of the life in them was about to be lost, hence the Lord warns them to strengthen those things. The only way such souls who have walked in the alpha light can be strengthened is by entering the omega light.
This shows us clearly that a soul who has only the alpha light still has the tendency to die; i.e. such can turn or draw back (Heb. 10:38). After we have tasted the good word of the Lord, we should press on into the word of oath which is the dimension of complete sealing. Let us believe God to continue in the Son until we reach the end so that we might be perfected. Amen.

Ministration # 6 (The Inner Stature of the New City)
Text: Rev. 21:1-12, 22-24
Every believer has been ordained to walk in the good works of God, but a man cannot produce good works until the revelation of Jesus is given to him. There are works that a believer does before he begins to receive revelation, but when revelation knowledge begins to visit such, another kind of work (good works) begins. That work progresses as the revelation progresses in him. In our day, the Lamb is shining a light that will kick starts good works. If we receive and obey His light, we will produce good works.
Jesus is Alpha and Omega. He is the beginning and ending of all revelations. When Christ is revealed, all we see is God. He is the full expression of God. He is the work that the Father wrought. In Christ Jesus, the Father built and showcased Himself. So any believer that either lacks knowledge of His essence and the lights He bears or lacks the revelation of Him as the Alpha and Omega, will neither understand nor produce good works. (Heb. 1:3)
Gen. 1:26And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
In the beginning when God was to create man, He said, ‘Let us make man in our image and after our likeness’. The original intention of God was that man would eat of the tree of life and thereby, God would produce men who are lambic by nature. What is now called ‘the old nature’ was never meant to find expression on earth. Man was created to be meek and lowly, but what we see today are highness and loftiness, haughtiness of spirit and proud looks. If Adam had eaten from the fruit of the tree of life, we would not have had to combat another nature.
Rev 5:12 … Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
One great blessing that we should desire to come into is the revelation of the meekness of Christ! It was meekness that enabled Him to lay down His will and take up the will of the Father. When He came, He said; ‘Lo I come in the volume of the book, it is written of me to do your will oh God’ (Ps. 40:7/Matt. 26:42). He could of Himself do nothing. What He heard His Father do was what He lived for because He did not come to the earth to do His will but that of the Father who sent Him (John 5:30, 4:34).
This is how Jesus came into worthiness. He fulfilled all the will of God, and NEVER FOR ONCE lived for Himself. As the will of the Father was being revealed to Him, the Lamb was being slain. When Revelation Visits A Man And Such A One Yield’s To Its Demands, It Gradually Begins To Slay The Man. He who is being slain is also being conformed into a kind of person that will be worthy of power, riches, wisdom, glory, and honour (Rev. 5:12). The nature we secure after we have been slain is what makes a man worthy of divine attributes. That is why the New Jerusalem City (the overcoming bride of Christ) in Rev. 21:2 appeared with the same glory of the Father upon her. That was a conglomeration of saints that conformed to the image of the Lamb and was therefore made worthy to wear His glory
Heb. 13:9 Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.
God is looking forward to seeing men who are compatible with His Person, whose hearts have been established in grace (Heb. 13:9). There is a grace that comes from the knowledge of the Son, Jesus Christ, who is full of grace and truth. He received so much grace from the Father via all the judgments committed unto Him (Jn. 3:35, 5:20). Those judgments are gracious substances that configured Him to be meek and lowly, and those are the substances that can get us established also. Meekness and lowliness are the work of grace.
For us to do God’s will, God has to work in us. His work in us is initiated when He begins to flood our hearts with the revelation of His Son. That revelation then brings to us the grace of our Lord Jesus which in turn makes us meek and lowly, not only in words, but in heart. Meekness flows from the heart. A person could appear humble, talk humble and even act humble, but his heart is highly lifted. That is why we need to trust the Lord to get our hearts corrected and established in grace.
Meekness and lowliness are elements of the divine nature and only the Lord can work them into a man. No man can claim it because it is not a gift or anointing; it is an anointed (separated) lifestyle. It is built in us only as we keep hearing (Rev. 2:7/11/17/29, 3:6/13/22) the Lamb, and receiving (Jam. 1:21) His light which is able to turn a man into a lamb. That is why Paul said, ‘I am not ashamed of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to them that believe’. (Rom. 1:16).
Naturally speaking, meekness and lowliness are a taboo to man, the same way that pride and a haughty spirit are an abomination to God. People consider you foolish when you are meek. Even our biological parents fought to cultivate in us the attitude of standing up for our rights, and defending ourselves, but this is not the way of the kingdom.
God is saying that we should not resist being cheated or taken for granted. He would have us desist from fighting for our rights. This is the nature of Christ. When He was reviled, He reviled not again (1Pet. 2:23). When He suffered, He threatened not, rather He committed Himself to God who is the righteous Judge. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and He opened not His mouth. HE NEVER DEFENDED HIMSELF EVEN IN THE FACE OF DEATH. He prayed for those who tortured Him. This is the standard that God has raised for us and we are to receive grace to come up to it because truly it is completely a work of grace. Man can never attain it.
Eph. 4:1–3 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is the ALPHA and the OMEGA of meekness. That omega level is what Paul calls all MEEKNESS and all LOWLINESS. We graduate from one level of meekness to another, and the meeker a man becomes, the further he journeys into God. We get grieved when God begins to introduce us to the beginning courses in the school of meekness, but we need both the alpha and the omega of meekness and lowliness to come into the worthiness of our calling (Eph. 4:2).
Jesus is the Alpha and Omega of all meekness and lowliness, and He is the light of the future city (habitation of God in men). In Him lies the power of life and immortality. The realm of immortality is the realm of His rest, and when a man has learnt of Him, such would find rest for his soul (Math. 11:29). The essence of learning Him is to configure His Lambic nature in us so that He and His Father would be comfortable to dwell with us and rest in our midst forever (2Cor. 6:16d/Rev. 21:3). We are the glorious place of His rest and the glory of that place is the same glory of the Lamb upon His Bride who has been adorned with the very image and likeness of her Husband.

Ministration #7 (Attaining the Perfect Light)
Divine nature is the only nature that God can trust because that is the only nature that can receive all that He is. That nature is built in a man by the light of the knowledge of Christ that is why a saint should seek His light and hold it dearly. When we are granted the privilege of access into the riches of His knowledge, which is His light, we should find grace to hold it and follow it to the end. Heb. 2:1/3
There are two dimensions of the light of the Son: the Alpha and the Omega. The beginning point of entrance into Divine nature is the Alpha light, but until a soul comes into the Omega light, he could still be corrupted. Only when the earthly things in the soul are completely removed will the soul be crowned an overcomer (Rev. 14:3d), and that is when the Omega light has run its full course in the soul. God’s intention is for the saints to enter the divine state, a realm beyond all creatures, where we become immune to death. In such state, the soul is so lost in God that he can no longer fall back into flesh. He has entered a realm beyond being pulled or tempted.
Armed with knowledge of the promise of the Father unto us, Peter warns the saints to be sober and vigilant because we have an adversary who knows what we are racing to become and does not want it. Satan hates to see us completely turned and sealed to the end and he is afraid to see men come into such dimension, but that is our lot. It is possible to attain this because Jesus has opened the door for us to enter.
Rev. 2:25-26 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
What the soul has is the work of Christ which has been done in him by the Spirit of the Lord, and that the soul ought to hold fast because it is so precious. That is why the adversary would do everything to make a saint let go of such work. When life continues to increase in a soul, Satan gets afraid. He becomes more violent in attacking the saint, but it is the responsibility of the saint to hold fast the grounds which the Lord has already conquered, and not yeild them again to the adversary. That is how we overcome him, by receiving and keeping the works of God from alpha (the beginning) to omega (the end).
Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
We overcome death with life. The more of life a soul acquires, the more of coming over death such would manifest. Those who overcame Satan in the book of revelation did so by the life (blood) of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony (Rev. 12:11). They acquired so much life that they came into life more abundantly, which made them higher and superior to Satan and the things he offers.
Rev. 22:3-5And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
There is no reign without the throne of God. There is a constitution of power that flows from the essence of God’s being; God in Himself is a throne. In the book of Colossians, Apostle Paul said God made principalities, powers, might or dominion and thrones. If God made beings and called them thrones, it means that they do not need a physical seat to express their powers. By the constitution of their make, they can express thronic abilities. Col. 1:16
If the angelic beings who are described as the works of God’s dominion are called thrones, it means that cherubims and seraphims are thrones also. The former are kingly thrones while the latter are priestly thrones. God Himself, who made them all is the Throne above all thrones.
Thronic ability is the expression of the dominion of an entity who is constituted a king. A king is a throne and out of a king flows dominion. The Lord rides on the cherubim (psalm 18:10), meaning the Lord rides on the highest thrones, but God wants to ride on something much more higher than that. He will need to bring forth greater thrones that’s higher than the ones He is riding upon now. Anywhere you find the throne, you find God because God sits only on the throne.
Every throne needs to submit to a higher throne. (Eze. 28:14, Isa. 14:12). The Bible says Jesus is the head of all principalities and powers, but it also says that the head of Christ is God (1Cor. 11:3). Christ is submissive to God, so God rides upon Him because Christ is the throne of God. He is the best platform for God to fully express. God has expressed Himself in time past, but in Christ He finds uninhibited, unlimited expression, for Christ is the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person.
As children, God wants us to become what his son also become. He wants to make each of us a throne, and for that to be achieved, a process of training must be initiated because it takes a meek man to seat God, and it takes time to make a meek man.
2Thes. 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
Sin is weaved in a mystery. The word ‘mystery’ means secret. It means that a mere preacher cannot handle it. Only a mysterious being can stop a mystery, and it will take the mystery of righteousness to stop the mystery of iniquity. Sin has started working since and it has a place where it is going to later end. Something is not allowing the mystery of iniquity to prosper the way it should; i.e. God.
1Thes. 2:7-8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
That wicked one is the antichrist. He is the full stature of Satanic work. He is called the man of sin because he is the perfect work of sin. He will receive the complete works of Satan. As God is working in men the power both to will and to do according to His pleasure, Satan is also working in men both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
God’s works in us are greater than the works of Satan, and each time we gather as saints, it ought to be an avenue for receiving the workings of God, which is Christ. CHRIST IS GOD’S PROJECT FOR THE CHURCH. He must be built in the soul, and every minister of the gospel ought to be committed to no other project but this. Some have dwelt on the milk of God’s word and that is in order, because it is a preparation for the beginning of the real work of God, but in this generation, God is raising able ministers like Paul of Tarsus, who have mysteries of unseen works. They would teach the meat of God’s word and thereby dismantle secret works of sin and build secret works of truth. These are they to whom the endtime task of New Testament ministry is being committed, and any ministry that is not aligning to this order (milk and meat) is working against God because such a one is not building according to Christ’s pattern.
God does not only want to begin His work in us, He also wants to finish it. The work comes to the finish as we walk in it. When we take steps according to the blueprint of what has been laid down in us, God’s work grows and increases, and when the work is perfected, it is an awesome spiritual edifice. Such a soul has become alpha and omega, a throne that can carry God.
Zech. 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
God is king and He rides on the meek. This is exemplified by the the kings of Jerusalem. They do not ride into Jerusalem on horses or chariots; they ride on donkeys. In those days, when anyone rode into Jerusalem on a horse, nobody took note of him, but when a man rode on a donkey, the people would celebrate and put down their palms for the ass to tread upon because that was their king. The meek king rides on a meek animal, and that is the donkey or ass. The word ‘ass’ means beast of burden. It is a connotation for a kind of person who can saddle God throughout eternity, a throne entity.
God is making a throne for Himself where He will sit and reign forever, and that is the reason why He trains us in the way of meekness. Those who will be built with the strength of Christ to carry God through all the ages will be meek and lowly men, ordinary men whom the world cannot reckon with. The throne of God will not be constituted by the elegant, the eloquent, and the powerful ones because God cannot ride on a horse. He needs something much lower. The ass is lower and slower than the horse. The horse is higher and swifter. You cannot run through ages when you are too fast because you will not be able to endure the One Who is riding on you. What the soul needs to bear the King in patience and endurance, not in swiftness.
The horse has a kind of strength, swiftness, but the strength of the donkey is endurance, and that is greater because endurance is eternal life – that which lasts. Endurance is a manifestation of the spirit of might which will enable a man to suffer long and forbear (Eph. 3:16/4:1-3). A Donkey does not complain but a horse does because it has its ways. That is why it said that, ‘You can force a horse to a river but you cannot force it to drink water’. A horse can do a quick job, but an ass can endure through a journey and never complain because it has a Lambic nature (a meek nature). Such nature is a constitution of the throne.
Anyone who will be built according to the pattern of the Son of God must be decked with these two substances: PATIENCE and LONGSUFFERING, because they are the courses of the testimony. He who has passed the course of patience and longsuffering is he who can keep testimony. Such is stronger than Satan because endurance is stronger than Satan. That is why the testimony of God through which the saints overcome was called, ‘The Word of His Patience’.
God does not sit on anything that does not have a testament. HE SAT ON THE ARK OF THE COVENANT BECAUSE THE ARK ENCLOSED THE TESTIMONY, AND TODAY GOD IS MAKING MEN, WHO LIKE DONKEYS, WOULD BECOME PROPHETS ACCORDING TO THE NEW TESTAMENT, WHO WOULD CARRY HIS BURDEN WHICH IS HIS TESTAMENT. God wants to ride on such men, because He has chosen to ride upon men in the midst of His city, the Lamb’s wife, the New Jerusalem. (Rev. 21:2/10)
