9-16-2023 Touching the Dead

Messiah said to them, The Lord has made a border between us and those who have no part in the Lord, so that their spirit does not have a dark affect against our spirit or the spirit of our entire believing family. And let our public decision for the Messiah be a witness between those who believe and those who do not believe, so that they cannot accuse our own family one day of no longer having any part in the Lord, either, because our spirit was unconsciously leavened by having intercourse with those who were dead in their spirit.

The light of the body is the eye: therefore when your eye is honest, seeing only those things that are true, your whole body also is full of light and is in integrity; but when your eye is evil and not honest but self-deceiving through your self-interests, your body also is full of evil and darkness. So be aware and watchful that the light which is in you does not become darkness. For many are wandering in darkness that they have deceived themselves into naming "light."

And He said, If your whole body be full of light, having no part in darkness, then the whole part of you will be full of light as a candle lights up a dark place. No one, when they have lighted a candle, puts it in a secret place, neither do they hide it under a cover, but they put it on a candlestick, that those who come in may see their way by the light that is shining from it. When your light is actually shining out from the Spirit of Messiah within you, and not from yourself, everyone knows it. It cannot be hidden and the world will not praise it. This is why those who love darkness, depart from you when you shine. If they do not depart from you, then you are not shining. You are in their own darkness with them. If you are shining, those who have a dead spirit will actually force you away from them, for they love darkness and they love death. They might appear to be momentarily happy with your flesh, but when the actual truth shines out of you they become uncomfortable and expel you from mutual contact with them, as they run toward the darkness of their self-justification. Speaking well of one's self is always revealed for what it is.

Do not have mutual contact with those whose spirit is dead, or the dead become death to you in the spirit and you are caught up with their deceptive testimony and you become part of their error, and then die yourself. For a soul who touches the dead body of anyone, shall have the effects of that touch for seven days. Those who are dead cannot praise the Lord continually but only speak of their own things; they go down into spiritual silence. The person who wanders out of the way of understanding shall go to be with, and remain, in the congregation of the dead. One naturally joins the congregation of his friends, those who are like him. A man's society is who he is himself. And remember, the dead know nothing at all. The mind of Messiah is not in them. They can only celebrate their present party for the moment, sound their horn for a bit, and mourn when the week begins again.

Peter said to Yeshua, I have dirt on me but I will not let you humble yourself so much as to wash it off my feet; I will do that myself, since my feet are not all that bad anyway. And Messiah said to him, If I do not wash even your feet from the residue of this earth that is still clinging to them, because you resist me in your prideful "humility," then you will have no part with me, you will be alone. I must wash your earthly love away continually, in order for you to continually be with me where I am. I have no part with those who are able to be at home in the dust of the earth or who walk around comfortably in it.

Do not mourn the righteous souls whose bodies have been put in the grave, for they have finished their sojourn in this present world, but mourn those unbelievers who move away from the Spirit of Messiah and leave you. But do not mourn more than seven days or their deathly spirit will come back and molest you. "Through the air" their dark spirit will come as a haunting, and will leaven that which you have. A leavened loaf does not know it. It is quite alright with itself.

There is an evil among all things done under the sun in this world; there is one event common to all who are evil: yes, the heart of the sons of men in this world is full of evil, and madness is continually in their heart while they live, and after that they all go to the grave. Death is all they will ever get from their madness.

But to those who have been unconsciously affected by their contact with the dead, and now hear the Lord speak to them, they shall arise; together with my body, the body of Messiah, they shall arise. For I, and those whom Father baptized with me into death, are passing through the final death to self into the resurrection. Awake and sing, you who have dwelt in the residue of earthly forms, you who have dwelt in the remnants of expecting prophesied events to come in a certain way, in an earthly imaginable way, instead of in Father's current way: for the refreshing dew of seeing in a new way, and living in a new reality of Father's current sight, only, has come, just as the refreshing dew appears on herbs with the dawning of the light.

The earth will cast out those who have passed through death into the resurrection. So come, my people, enter more deeply into your private chambers with Father, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the abhorrent things in the earth escalate to their final destruction. For, look and see, the LORD now comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their satanic evil madness which has gone beyond all that is humanly imaginable: the earth also shall no longer be able to hide her guiltiness, and shall no more be able to conceal those she killed with her earthly spirit.

Therefore Messiah says, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead, for the dead are their present reality. But the Spirit is presently yours. It is not your work to have mutual contact with the dead, and walk and talk with them as though they were alive, lifting their dead selves up in your own mind to your own measure. The Spirit's Mind is the only measure, especially at this crucial time.

Those who have passed through the final death and resurrection, neither marry, nor are given in marriage any longer; but are as the angels which are in heaven. For those who shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage.

One who makes a contract with the world, with one who is dead, cannot easily escape, for the creditor constantly approaches and demands payment or has some expectation. Do not make contracts with unbelievers. Don’t be unequally yoked together with unbelievers, for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness or self-righteousness? And what communion has light with darkness? Oil and water cannot assimilate as one.

Neither yield the members of your body as instruments of unrighteousness for sinful contracts with the earth to become indebted to it: but yield yourselves to Messiah only, as those who have arisen from the dead. Yield your members as instruments of righteousness to God only, as part of His body alone. Knowing that Messiah being raised from the dead dies no more; death has no more dominion over Him. Neither shall death have dominion over you.

And Messiah said again: If anyone comes to me, but loves the lives and opinions of their father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yes, and does not hate their own life also, they cannot be taught of me. My brethren and sisters and family are not those who possess the flesh, but those who possess the Spirit. They are my family and none other. Going to church and hearing nice things about God out of the mouths of those in darkness, is hateful to the Father of His Son, Who sacrificed Himself for the purpose of causing us to ascend with Him. Whoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also is the Son of man ashamed, who has come in the glory of the Father with the holy angels.

Wherefore, my brethren and sisters, my family, you also are become dead to the rules and customs of those who are earthly, by the body of Messiah; that you should be married to another, even to Him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God as He does. And if the Spirit of Him that raised up Yeshua from the dead dwells in you, He that raised up Messiah from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you, just as was done with Yeshua.

So truly the nations are now angry, and God’s wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that God should give reward to His servants the prophets, and to the ones set apart by God, and those who fear His name, small and great; and should destroy them which destroy the earth in their satanic madness.
