5. THE VISION WITH THE OUTLINE OF CHRIST’S GODLINESS
My dear brother! My faithful friend!
The Holy Spirit mightily testifies to my heart that, after the reading of this prophetic book, many Christians will feel like Bartimaeus just at the moment he began to see. They will finally understand how great the difference between reigning and serving is. Once and for all, they will comprehend that the price of reigning above is paid with the serving below. And the meaning of starting to live with open eyes before the Lord is no other than to withdraw from the places of desolation and curse forever and abide in humbleness, meekness and thankfulness to God and to the abundant Grace that saves them.
I will not hide from you that, in the childish period of my faith, I have also been overshadowed by the inscription of Pontius Pilate. I have sung songs with exceptional royal self-confidence. I have watched many video-cassettes, full of the vainglorious spirit of America. I have even triumphed at the view of the prestige, the prosperity and the lustre of the first hirelings, whose conferences I had the misfortune to visit in NDK (the National Palace of Culture in Sofia, Bulgaria).
Today, fourteen years later, I notice with deep sorrow that whereas the servant of God walked forth and reached the heights of Mount Zion and the innermost circle of God’s Presence, all those religious kings have been walking away in their retreat from Lord’s Covenant. So, their churches have become like the malodorous incinerator of the immense religious meat-chopping machine. Since, it is this Babylonian stench that will be attacked, when the Angel of the Lord commands the Heavenly birds to eat the flesh of the kings, the flesh of the commanders of hundreds, the flesh of the commanders of thousands, and even the flesh of all people, free and slave, great and small.
Today, fourteen years later, I see with horror that the church kings have sunk very deep in their wickedness. Some of them built very expensive church buildings, deceiving their flocks that namely this is the general vision by Heaven. Others hid themselves in welfare, which seemed to be ordered from a western catalogue. Third decided that God is weak to keep and protect them and appointed for themselves bodyguards, swelling the staff in the church registers. Just imagine this:
The limousine of the church majesty stops and stout boys, who are well-trained in judo, wrestling or eastern fighting skills, quickly go out through the back doors. They hurry to open the door for the leader, who fixes his necktie with self-confidence and goes out of the car, in order to go and meet his worshipers. And they cannot even touch him, because the bodyguards should always do the duties, for which they are generously paid…
Brother, it is typically in a royal manner, is it not? These are typical religious aristocrats, whose prosperity and prestige you can compare only to that of the worldly notables and businessmen. Is there any problem for these leaders to open their bibles under the delighted melting regards of the deceived sheep, and then to start preaching them about one… king David, for instance? It is now a biblical example, now royal and now sufficient to pump up their royal self-confidence.
However, why does each of these Babylonian kings want the rank of David, but none of them wants his heart? Why does each of them suppress the fact that whereas David was a king before the eyes of Israel, he was a servant before the eyes of God Father? Did not Father call His excellent psalm-singer “My servant David”? Did not He find him through His prophet Samuel, in order to pour over his head the Holy Oil of His Heavenly benevolence? Then, let me tell you, my brother, that the only reason for David to be “a man according to God’s Heart” was that, being a king in duty, he remained a servant in his cordial vocation; not only a servant among many other servants, but one who humbled his heart before the Eyes of the Most High. He humbled his heart to such an extent that, at one moment, he provoked the disgust of the royal daughter Michal, who could not swallow his serving and hissed like a snake:
“How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, going around half-naked in full view of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!” (2 Samuel 6:20)
Do you see, my brother, how the royal self-confidence looks at the serving according to God’s Will? This self-confidence determines the servants as “any vulgar fellow”. How was it possible for King David to afford “a fall”, which is typical only for servants? However, read what the answer of the humble servant of God was:
“It was before the Lord, Who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when He appointed me ruler over the Lord’s people Israel – I will celebrate before the Lord. I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honour…” (2 Samuel 6:21-22)
Could the royal daughter with a heart of a snake understand this answer of David? Could she swallow up her hurt pride after she was filled by the whole possible contempt for the servant of God? Of course, she could not! That is why the next verse from “The second book of Samuel” is so explicit:
“Therefore Michal the daughter of Saul had no children to the day of her death…” (2 Samuel 6:23)
My brother! My faithful friend!
I will be extremely sincere and sharp in the prophecy, which Lord gives to me against all the vainglorious churches. Full of the Holy Spirit, I will prophesy against them the words of my Lord:
“You, vainglorious churches, are Saul’s Michal before God’s eyes! You like the proud reigning and hate the humble serving; therefore, your doom from my God and Lord is to remain fruitless and barren forever!
God’s Infant Immanuel will never be born in your wombs, since you are full of the poison of a cobra and hatch the eggs of a viper!
God’s servant David will never rise among you, because you would immediately kill him with your contempt! What remains for you is to be ruled by Saul and to be deceived by Amalek – till the moment, when the Furious Anger of God Almighty overtakes your earth kingdoms and defeats your earth prosperity!
Let Father and Son through the Holy Spirit testify to this prophecy! Let it become a sentence in the hands of the Judge and in the Day of His Judgement! Amen and Amen!”
So, my brother, let me tell you something more about David. The reason for me to do it is that the second outline of my Lord and God is Godliness. And this – to be godly – means for a servant to always please their Master. If we turn back the thread of David’s genealogy, we will surely reach the Moabitess Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi. As I hope you already know, the meaning of the name Naomi is namely Godliness. Do you understand now that, in the family of David and Jesus Christ, Godliness has always been like the green leaves upon each newly sprouted twig? It is so, so that this Godliness may reach the Branch That was the Offspring of David and the Bright Morning Star.
More than eight years ago, Jesus visited my heart with astonishing Grace and Perfect benevolence. A fruit of this coming of His was the book about “The Church Ruth”, in which Lord prophetically traced the way before His servants, by whom He will preserve His last Living Church on earth. Let me remind you of a single sentence from this book, in order for you to be convinced that my calling to be a Heavenly servant and a prophet of God has not been moved a single jot away from the purpose of Christ’s outlines. Here are the words of my Lord and God:
“Whoever has ears, let them hear and whoever reads, let them understand! This book is My last cry to your hearts! I will surely speak to many children of Mine, but everything will repeat over and over again the prophetic visions and revelations, which are written here!”
Nine years later, and with the testimony of a hundred and thirty books more, the servant of God will call you again to serving. To this serving, however, I will also add the denial from the inscription of Pontius Pilate, who slyly incited many church leaders to play kings, when the Heavenly God needed servants according to His Heart.
Nine years later, the sentence in the hands of the Heavenly Judge has become a flash of lightning from God’s Eternal Truth that will destroy the generation of the wicked ones and will determine their doom in the fiery lake.
And, who is that crazy and mad man, who would reject the appeal of Jesus and would harden their heart, in order to thus remain bound by the ropes of deceit? Who is that one, who is darkened in the spirit of their mind and lacking in reason to consider that a deed, which has not been broken and destroyed by the furious efforts of the devil of many years, cannot be the deed of a single man, but only a personal appearance of the Trinity and the whole Heaven? Who is that madman, with a brain, eaten through by deceit, who cannot find a place for change in their heart, in order to consider that the weakness of God is mightier even than the mightiest strength of Babylon? For, what did the descendants of Diotrephes do against the servant of God? Did they break him down, in order for him to fall and be unable to stand up anymore? Did they corrupt his mind after years of sorceries and abuses? Did they darken the lightness of his face with widely spread abuses and repulsive lies? After all these years, did not the written word come true? And namely that:
“There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord…” (Proverbs 21:30)
Then, what else can the faithful ones of Jesus do, but rejoice in the Salvation and the Redemption, which Lord does for them through His servant? Here, I tell you, my friend, this book is Zion’s miracle of miracles, Light in the darkness, a quake in the religious dungeons of Babylon, which will free all the captives of Zion. So that they may climb up Lord’s Mount and be servants and Heavenly sacrifices of the Almighty God. Therefore, let me continue now with the following vision from the home of Apostle Paul, where I kept abiding with my spirit and heart.
In the moment, when Lord incited me again to become a participant in the vision, He spoke to His Apostle, telling him:
“Paul! Take now the second precious stone and let My servant touch it with his hand! So that he and, through him, My Church may see by which vision from My Gospel I confirmed you as My personal servant, who always pleased Me and remained godly. For, all My brothers and sisters must know the outlines of My Godliness…”
Listening to the words of Jesus, Paul approached the window of his room with a smile, taking the second precious stone. After that, sitting upon one of the three-legged stools, he excitedly told me:
“Stretch your hand, prophet of God, and touch together with me this precious stone. For, it is a vision of the Holy Spirit from the Eternal Gospel of the Lord…”
Having closed my eyes with extreme reverence, I stretched my hand to Paul’s one and touched the Heavenly diamond. Then, Light went out of the diamond and enveloped our spirits. Here that we instantly found ourselves in the Gospel of Jesus at the moment, when He was going into the region of Caesarea Philippi together with His disciples. While we were looking at the Lord, His Robe grew brighter and thus His Heavenly outlines appeared. Then, the Saviour stopped His disciples upon a height. He raised His hand, pointed at Jerusalem and started talking to them, saying:
“I must go to Jerusalem, because the duty before My Father calls Me there. And, as I enter the city, I will suffer too much from the elders, the chief priests and the scribes. Then, I will be killed by them. And, on the third day after My death, I will rise from the dead…”
While Lord was speaking these words to the people, who were gathered around Him, the devil suddenly crept behind His disciple Peter. He attacked Peter with suggestion and deceived him to see Jesus as a King with a gold crown, which was entirely becoming to His appearance, to His power and to His presence. So, in the heart of the fisherman, Jesus was really reflected as a King. However, here that the word, which was prophesied by the Saviour, hit namely Peter’s imagination. And the devil, who had remained hidden and elusive, began to whisper in the heart of Christ’s disciple, telling him:
“Should this crown fall from the head of Jesus, Who you love by the whole power of your heart? Should the Life of the Kind Teacher finish in death, which is only becoming to a robber, or should Father give Him the Kingdom Israel and raise Him as a King? Should you remain speechless now, when Lord tests how strongly you love Him? Should you remain speechless, Peter? The words of Jesus that it was not flesh and blood that revealed Him to you as Christ, but it was Father from Heaven that spoke to your heart have not trailed away from your ears yet, have they? Should Father let His Son die like a robber, or should He make Him a King of Israel, as it is becoming only to Him? Was not this the reason why you and all the children of Israel expected Messiah? Messiah, Peter! Messiah!”
I was listening to the whisper of the devil and it seemed to me so real that I even feared that it could possess me. Then, Paul squeezed my hand and quietly spoke to me, saying:
“Unless the children of God understand that the whole Gospel of Christ reflects the titanic clash between serving and reigning, they have read it in vain. Since, everything, which the devil told Peter is Truth, which concerns another Kingdom – in a different place and in another time. Here is where the destructive power of his cunning lies. Therefore, see now what the fisherman Peter is going to do…”
I was looking again at the vision, when I saw Peter biting his lips to blood. Then, some unknown audacity made him pull the sleeve of Jesus’ mantle and take the Lord aside. Here, in a rebuking voice, the fisherman spoke to the Lord, telling Him:
“Far be it from You, Lord! This shall never happen to You…” (Matthew 16:22)
Peter’s words instantly made the outlines of Jesus’ Godliness blaze with Heavenly Light, as if they had exploded. Jesus looked through Peter and struck down the dark pupils of the devil with the brilliance of His eyes. Then, a sharp Sword went out of Lord’s lips. A lightning bolt flashed out of the Sword and hit Satan’s heart. The words of the lightning declared:
“Get behind Me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to Me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns…” (Matthew 16:23)
Then, in an ardent Voice, He told His disciples:
“Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow Me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for Me will find it…” (Matthew 16:24-25)
At this moment, Paul spoke to me again, saying:
“What do you think, Lord’s servant? As an Apostle of Jesus Christ, where did I find the strong desire to become godly and please Father and the Son? How was it that I reached that moment of my apostleship, when I wrote:
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me…” (Galatians 2:20)
“Oh, Paul! You must have been too inspired by the vision, which Lord gave to your heart, just as He is giving it to my heart now. And, having understood that the clash against the devil is a clash between serving and reigning, you yourself have become a servant of Jesus Christ, in order to lay down your life upon God’s Holy Altar…”
“And how was the servant of Jesus Christ about to oppose the whole human control, in order to perfectly preserve the outlines of Christ’s Godliness in his heart? Is it easy for you to resist the human control and the human aspirations, by which Satan incites you to disobedience towards God?”
“Oh, Apostle! Like Jesus I must get used to looking not at the people, but through the people. Since, Lord did not look at Peter, but through Peter. He did not say that Peter is a stumbling block to Him. He did not blame Peter at all, but He saw the tempter, who was hidden behind His disciple…”
Paul smiled at my words. After that, he spoke to me again, saying:
“Here is how Jesus taught me, Lord’s servant! He not only taught me, but let me testify in my message by the following words:
“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the One Who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the Gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from Heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under God’s curse! Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the Gospel I preached is not of human origin. I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ…” (Galatians 1:6-12)
Now, on the page of this prophetic book, the Apostle of Jesus Christ will turn to the last churches and will reread the word which was written to the Galatians, but in the spirit of the last abominations and the last terrible retreat from Lord’s Covenant and from the outlines of Christ:
“Listen to the Apostolic Voice, churches of the last time:
I wonder why you abandoned the One, Who called you to serving, and thus easily passed to a false gospel and earth reigning. This is not a true gospel, but the deceit of Pilate’s worshipers, who confuse you and who want to pervert the Gospel of Christ. However, if someone preaches you a gospel, other than the Gospel about the serving of Jesus Christ and His Sacrifice on Lord’s Cross, let them be under God’s curse! Just as I told it in the prophecy of Lord’s servant, so I will repeat it as a Voice of the whole Heaven, and as a fateful warning by the Council of the Saints and by the Judge of the living and the dead:
If someone preaches against the Image of Jesus as a Servant on earth, let them be cursed before Lord’s Face! For, they have been perverted by the dragon, the beast and the false prophet, in order to preach deceit and to sow lie! And to you, servants of the Lord, I order:
Always keep the outlines of Christ’s Godliness and never please people, but always please God! For, only the one who pleases God and Father can remain and abide as a servant of Christ!
Today, you will witness the last titanic clash between the Sacrifice and the inscription, between serving and reigning, between Godliness and servility to men!
Blessed and Holy are the servants, who remember that they should listen only to the Voice of their Master! Blessed and Holy are the lips, which are anointed by the Holy One and which preach the Gospel of serving, which is not human, but God’s one!”
After these words, the Apostle of Jesus pointed again at the outlines of Jesus in the vision. He embraced me and told me in an innermost Voice:
“You have been born to live in the most troubled, but also the most glorious time! It is a time, when on earth nation rises against nation and kingdom stands against kingdom! Notice, however, that never in the Gospel did your Lord say that serving will stand against serving. And this is so, because the servants of the Lord live hidden in God’s Holy Presence.
Far above any authority and power, might and domination!
Far above the earth fights for power, money and influence!
Far above the abomination of desolation!
Far above – as Sacrificial oxen upon God’s Holy Altar!
Abide there, Lord’s servant, in order for you to serve the Eternal and Holy God with joy and thrill! Let the outlines of Christ’s Godliness, by which the Heavenly God keeps your heart, shine there!
Thus, at the Moment and the Day, when everything ends, I myself will invite you into my home, in order for you to share with me the whole treasury of visions and revelations, by which Jesus blessed your heart!
Now, let us return to the Lord again, in order for you to receive as a gift even the last of the precious stones, which concern the outlines of Christ – the stone of Lord’s Humbleness!”
After these last words of the Apostle, the vision stopped and I sat down to write everything pure, Holy and precious, which poured out of Lord’s lips and out of the spirit of His righteous servant! Amen and Amen!
