Greetings to all those seeking and searching for the Spiritual Truths in God’s Word.
In the book of Revelation we learn of two marks: the seal of God and the mark of the beast:
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16-17
He causeth ALL to receive a mark. What mark will you receive - - - the seal of God or the mark of the beast? Again, I ask you, will you receive the seal of God or the mark of the beast? Let’s look again at the book of Revelation:
“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.” Revelation 15:2
We must get the victory over the beast, over his image, over his mark, and over the number of his name. But how do we get this victory? There is only one way. We must become overcomers. We must overcome our fleshly desires, our anger, our fears, our pride, our unforgiveness, our hate, all those things that are unrighteous and unholy before our God. Only then can we be victors in Christ.
In Revelation 14:4-5 we find that we must not be defiled with women. Women represent the apostate church. So we must be careful not to be defiled with the precepts and doctrines of the church system. We must become the firstfruits who are producing the fruits of the Spirit in our lives. Our goal should be to be found with no guile and without fault before the throne of God.
In Revelation 7, verses 2 through 4 we discover:
“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”
God is waiting for His firstfruit company to come forth and serve Him with their whole heart. Only those who are sealed with the seal of God will be protected when the coming wrath is poured out upon the earth, the sea, and the trees. We need to search and try our ways and return to the Lord. We need to purge ourselves as Paul tells us in II Timothy 2:19-21
“Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.”
How do we purge ourselves so that we will not be a vessel of dishonor? We must change, we must overcome, and truly repent. We must prepare ourselves and sanctify ourselves unto honor. Only these will become useable vessels unto the Father. John tells us in John 6:27
“Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for him hath God the Father sealed.”
What is the meat which endures unto everlasting life? It is the deeper things of the Word of God, the Spiritual Word that God is desiring to reveal to His people. But, sorrowfully, His people are not ready because they have not overcome the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.
John further reveals that it is those who partake of the meat of the Word are going to be those whom the Father seals. The word sealed means “to set a seal upon, mark with a seal, for security: from satan, also the name of God and Christ stamped upon their foreheads.” Paul tells us in Ephesians 1:12 – 14:
“That we should be to the praise of His glory, who first trusted in Christ. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory.”
Ask yourself this question: “Can God trust me and put confidence in me? And most of all, can I put my trust and total confidence in God? Is He your all in all? Is He your hope? Or is your hope in government, insurance, or in yourself? Again, we find in the book of Hebrews:
“But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”
If we do not believe, trust, hope, and diligently seek Him, than we will not be pleasing in His sight, and there will be no reward (no peace, no joy, no love in our hearts).
Paul further tells us in Galatians 3:14:
“That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
The only way we can receive a blessing and the promise of the Spirit is if we believe. And if we truly believe we will prepare our whole heart to receive God’s seal marked in our foreheads. Paul goes on to tell us in Romans 8:9:
“But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His.”
Ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit , if and only if the Spirit of God dwelleth in you. That big word IF changes everything. IF the Spirit of God dwells in us, we will be in the Spirit. We may think or say the Spirit of God dwells in us, but we might ask ourselves, “Is there a blessing in our lives? Is there peace? Is there Joy? Is there love in our hearts? IF we have His Spirit, He will show up thorughout our whole life.
The question may be asked, “What is the prize of the high calling of God? Paul tells us in Philippians 3:14 – 17:
“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing. Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
The prize is the seal of God in our foreheads - - - our minds - - - revealing to all those around us righteousness and true holiness.
May you strive for that righteousness and true holiness in your life and receive the prize.

The Coming Forth of God’s Son Company
new order is coming forth in our day. Those who are being separated,
dedicated, and pure before God will become part of the tribe of
Spiritual Ephraim, the body of Christ. The name Ephraim
shall be double fruitful".
is raising up His "Son Company" who will be double fruitful
in the earth. This
is going to be a very special group of people who will declare as
“That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death;” Philippians 3:10
These will become God’s young men who are willing to suffer with Him. Upon these, God is going to endue the Double Portion Anointing. God is desiring to bring many young men into His glory. Paul related to the church at Colosse:
"To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:" Colossians 1:27
The riches of God's glory that has remained a mystery is now being revealed. Paul revealed this mystery to the church at Philippi:
"My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you," Galatians 4:19
Yes, God is desiring young men who will travail in birth until Christ is formed in them. When Christ is birthed in us, He will consume our whole being. Then everything we say and everything we do will exalt His glory in the earth, our earth. This is our hope, our only hope of glory.
God's glory will be revealed in His overcoming saints. Matthew reveals a hidden mystery:
He sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them
likewise. But last of all He sent unto them His son, saying, They
will reverence My Son." Matthew 21:36-37
believe when Matthew recorded Jesus' Words, he was speaking of Jesus,
but Jesus did not come at the end of the age, He came at the
beginning of the Age of Grace.
Who is the son Matthew was speaking of? It is the Son Company that is going to be revealed at the time of harvest. Paul reveals this Son Company to the church at Rome:
This Son Company is going to be manifested at the end of the age. This Son Company will complete the job the husbandmen have failed to do. The whole creation is waiting for this time when God will bring to maturity that which He died for. His purpose in doing this is so He might have a people who will come to the full stature of their example, Jesus Christ. This is a great hidden mystery:
the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but
now is made manifest to His saints: To whom God would make known what
is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which
is Christ in you, the hope of glory:” Colossians 1:26-27
"He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be His God, and he shall be My son." Revelation 21:7
It is only the overcoming sons of God who will be His heirs, and it is only the overcoming sons of God who are going to inherit all things. The Apostle Luke gives us further insight into those who are the Son Company, the overcomers:
"For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for My name's sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish." Luke 21:15-18
The Overcoming Sons' Company will be part of the two witnesses Jesus revealed to John on the Isle of Patmos:
"And I will give power unto My two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.;" Revelation 11:3-5
These two witnesses will prophesy for one thousand, two hundred, and three score days. This is the three and one-half years when God's wrath (His judgment) is going to be poured out upon the earth. Jesus proclaimed, ". . . if any man will attempt to hurt them, fire will come out of their mouths and devour their enemies. . .". This fire is the anointed, Holy Spirit inspired Word of God that will come forth with power.
The prophet Joel informed us of God's Overcoming Son Company as His army:
"And the Lord shall utter His voice before His army: for His camp is very great: for He is strong that executeth His Word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it? Joel 2:11
The Lord is going to speak, and direct this Overcoming Son Company. His camp (His army) is very great. Those who execute His Word are very strong (mighty). The word executeth means "to accomplish and to do His work."
Yes, it is going to be God’s Overcoming Son Company who will be the two witnesses sent to minister when the Lord pours out His judgment and wrath upon a sinful and godless world. Joel continues to proclaim the mighty deeds of God's Overcoming Son Company:
"They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on His ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in His path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded." Joel 2:7-8
Nothing will be able to touch God's overcoming two witness army. Even if they fall upon a sword, they will not be wounded.
"They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief." Joel 2:9
No obstacle will be too great for God's overcoming army. They will carry God's Kingdom message to all those whom God has chosen - - - to those who love God - - - but have been robbed in the church system. The prophet Isaiah proclaimed those to whom God's army will be ministering to:
"But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore." Isaiah 42:22
Isaiah is speaking of those who love the Lord, but have been trapped in their prison houses of their religious systems. These will finally hear the message of restoration by those in God's army who have the ministry of reconciliation. God has promised to take all His overcoming Son Company under the wings of His protection. The Psalmist declares:
"Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;" Psalm 91:5
God's army has nothing to fear from the arrows that fly by day. God makes more glorious promises to His Overcoming Son Company:
"Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee." Psalm 91:6-7
Disease, famine, and the sword will have no affect on God's glorious army in this last day. They will be in the midst of those who are destroyed in God's judgment, but His army will suffer none of these things. And as the Psalmist declared:
"Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked." Psalm 91:8
The day of God's judgment is near at hand, but God's glorious army will not be affected by all the destruction they are about to witness. This is the time God's Overcoming Son Company will be glorified. Those who remain in their Adam sleep have no idea what God has planned for His son company. Paul quoted the Old Testament when he disclosed to the Corinthians:
"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him." I Corinthians 2:9
The power to become sons was given to all that believe.
“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." John 1:12
who believe on His name can have this power in their lives if they
desire and ask for it. God gives this power through the "Cloven
Tongues" of fire to cleanse our lives so that we may come into
sonship in Him. As we see in Revelation:
that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and
he shall be My son." Revelation 21:7
