The End of the Matter- Part 2:
The podcast can be found at:
“Becoming Beacons of Light to this Generation”
Philippians 2:14-16 AMP Do all things without grumbling and faultfinding and complaining [against God] and questioning and doubting [among yourselves], That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world, Holding out [to it] and offering [to all men] the Word of Life, so that in the day of Christ I may have something of which exultantly to rejoice and glory in that I did not run my race in vain or spend my labor to no purpose.
Paul’s role was to be a father to those he mentored, and to pour himself into them, to make them into the next father’s of the faith also. His personal joy was to see them grow up and to successfully become the new leaders.
The fruit of the Spirit within us is the Light that shines out of us to the entire world. God is removing the spots, the wrinkles, the wood, the hay, and the chaff from within us, which are the hindrances to our inner light. Every inner blockage is being pulled out by the root, to reveal Him (the Light) as our true root!
When we grumble, complain, fault find, question, and doubt: our own inner light dims, and our public witness is also tainted, which causes those around us to also be affected. (See above verse...)
John 8:12 Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
The “light of Life” flowing within us, which is seen visibly through our lives by others.
Acts 26:18 to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
John 11:10 But if anyone walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him.”
Ephesians 2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—
2 Corinthians 4:4 For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers’ minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.
Ephesians 5:8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.
The unveiling of our hearts before men; what is resident within us will come out.
The fruits of the Spirit (Life) are supposed to be manifesting outwards from us, for all to see Jesus!
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
***John was called a burning light:
John 5:35 He was a burning and shining lamp, and you were willing to rejoice for a while in his light. ESV
AMP: 35 John was the lamp that kept on burning and shining [to show you the way], and you were willing for a while to delight (sun) yourselves in his light.
To sun ourselves in another’s light means to benefit from their light, to enjoy or bask in their light, to celebrate in his light for a season; to let them do the work while you ride on their works.
***We are also called a burning light: (Again, another 12:34!!!)
Luke 12:34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 35 Keep your loins girded and your lamps burning,
2 Peter 1:19 And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts,
***The Prophetic Word is likened also to a lamp burning or shining within us in this new season!
A new day has dawned: It is time to rise up, and to move by faith in obedience to Christ!
Isaiah 48:6 You have heard [these things foretold], now you see this fulfillment. And will you not bear witness to it? I show you specified new things from this time forth, even hidden things [kept in reserve] which you have not known. 7 They are created now [called into being by the prophetic word], and not long ago; and before today you have never heard of them, lest you should say, Behold, I knew them!
Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. 2 and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.
Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Matthew 5:16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
As I was finishing this message, the Lord said, “Today is 01-18”, the Lord then said, “go to Ephesians 1:18:”
17 [For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, 18 By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), 19 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,
You are pregnant with the prophetic promises of God, pregnant with Light! The Lord then said, “go and look up the words “pregnant + promise,” so I did: Another 1:18!!!
Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place under these circumstances: When His mother Mary had been promised in marriage to Joseph, before they came together, she was found to be pregnant [through the power] of the Holy Spirit.
Luke 1:35 Then the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you [like a shining cloud]; and so the holy (pure, sinless) Thing (Offspring) which shall be born of you will be called the Son of God.
2 Peter 1:17 For when He was invested with honor and glory from God the Father and a voice was borne to Him by the [splendid] Majestic Glory [in the bright cloud that overshadowed Him, saying], This is My beloved Son in Whom I am well pleased and delight,
It is time for the Father to be seen and heard through your life. It’s time to give birth to the promises! He is going to flood your heart’s eyes with light, so that you can move in harmony with Him. It is time to open up fully and let Him live through you!
I finished typing up this message, and I looked at my laptop, and the clock said, “1:18 am!” - AMEN!
I then went to bed and later woke up, and looked at the clock, and it said 1:18pm! - AMEN!

“The End of the Matter- 01-16-15”
The link to the podcast can be found at:
Core Scriptural Text: Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
Ecclesiastes 12:13 All has been heard; the end of the matter is: Fear God [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is] and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun] and the whole [duty] for every man. 14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.
Bryce was born on 12-13-14:
Name denotes the nature of God’s intent:
The Lord would name the prophets children in a parabolic way to reveal what He was going to do with the people and in their lifetimes...
"Bryce" means: Son of a nobleman. Swift. Force. Strength. Valor.
Let's look at: “The end of the matter:” (The nature of God's intent for man)
***The very foundation of our faith; the beginning point of our growth and maturity; the goal to aim towards:
1. this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation
2. the object of God’s providence, (God’s forseeing care, guidance, direction)
3. the root of character, (James 3:2)
4. the foundation of all happiness, (spirit, soul, body- in harmony with God)
5. the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun]
6. the whole [duty] for every man.
See: Micah 6:8, Lev 26:12, Deu 10:12, Jer 7:23, Gal 5:16, and Eph 2:22…
*** James 3:2 For we all often stumble and fall and offend in many things. And if anyone does not offend in speech [never says the wrong things], he is a fully developed character and a perfect man, able to control his whole body and to curb his entire nature.
The Glory functioning in our midst to bring us to the end of the matter:
Ecclesiastes 12:14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.
· The bad- to remove everything that resists His Kingdom and ways
· The good- to mature it and to build upon it, His Kingdom and ways
*** The Lord is showing us the end, from the beginning. We are at the end of one age, and the dawning of the new age before us. He is showing us what He wants to do, where He wants to take us, and what He will accomplish through us, so we can cooperate with Him.
Daniel 7:27 And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heavens shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions shall serve and obey Him. 28 Here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my [waking] thoughts troubled and alarmed me much and my cheerfulness of countenance was changed in me; but I kept the matter [of the interpreting angel’s information] in my heart and mind.
“The interpretation of the matter:”
Daniel 5:24 Then was the part of the hand sent from the presence of [the Most High God], and this writing was inscribed. 25 And this is the inscription that was written, mene, mene, tekel, upharsin—numbered, numbered, weighed, divisions. 26 This is the interpretation of the matter: mene, God has numbered the days of your kingship and brought them to an end; 27 tekel, You are weighed in the balances and are found wanting; 28 peres, Your kingdom and your kingship are divided and given to the Medes and Persians. [Foretold in Isa. 21:2, 5, 9.] 29 Then Belshazzar commanded, and Daniel was clothed with purple and a chain of gold put about his neck, and a proclamation was made concerning him that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom.
Footnotes: Daniel 5:25
For many people it may be difficult to understand why all the wise men, the magicians, the soothsayers, the Chaldeans, and the astrologers were unable to translate a few simple words, especially when Daniel’s prescribed education in languages was the same as their own—and he had no difficulty translating.
The answer is that any wise man who was present there probably could recognize the four inscribed words, but only the uncompromising man of God—who knew God through daily fellowship and communion with Him, who was so dedicated to Him that God could speak to him and through him—only such a man could tell what the words really meant.
Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) are those who dare to be a Daniel!

“The 3 Stages of Transition and Ascension Vision – 01-05-15”
The Lord gave me a vision that is parabolic in its meaning for us all. It speaks of the challenges and the transitions which the Lord will allow to come over the church in the next three years, and also speaks of the release of the wisdom of the deeper purposes the Lord has for us within those necessary changes, which is intended to force us all higher so that we can fulfill our mandates for the Harvest.
I saw a silver plane flying high in the sky, and it was encountering weather problems as the fog was hindering it’s view in the air. The pilots were forced to use their navigational instruments for their view was limited through the window. I saw that they were getting really close to a large mountain just ahead and they needed to gain more altitude to miss its peaks. At the last minute one of the pilots saw the mountain as the fog broke for a minute, and they panicked and pulled hard on their steering gears, and the plane started climbing erratically in a hard pull.
The plane just clipped the tip of the mountain with its underbelly, and the mountain tore a long gash under its body as it tried to go over the top. As this happened, the plane’s skin was literally unzipped and peeled off by the scraping, but I saw that the plane still did manage to make it over the mountain without crashing, but it had lost its outer skin and some mechanical capabilities in the process.
I saw that as the skin was stripped off by the impact, a red outer skin supernaturally came around the plane. The plane was still able to fly, but it had been physically changed by the encounter with the mountain. The pilots and the passengers were shaken up, but the pilots were more cautious now in their flight. The fog was now underneath them, and they decided to continue on with their flight. They flew on nervously, wondering where the new red skin had come from. They wondered if they should radio this in or not.
I then saw another mountain off in the distance, and I wondered if the pilots would see this one ahead of time. I could see that the 2 pilots were discussing the previous impact, and were checking out all of their other systems one at a time, and were also pre-occupied with also keeping the staff and passengers assured. One of the pilots finally looked up and he saw the next mountain, and signaled to the other pilot to start climbing. The other pilot was amazed at the reality of another mountain, since this was not an area for multiple mountains.
He began to pull up on his levers, but the plane hesitated and the pilot frantically pulled even harder, and finally after some resistance, the plane started to climb. The previous climb and accident had caused some issues in the mechanical system they failed to notice. The other pilot started to tell the staff and passengers to buckle up and stay seated again. The plane groaned loudly under the hard, steep climb into the higher altitudes, and it also clipped the top of the mountain peak, and again just like before, it’s under belly was sliced into.
The plane violently shuddered and the skin of the plane was being ripped open even deeper and torn off by the higher winds. Eventually the pilots got the plane stable as it again barely cleared the mountain without crashing, but there was obvious changes to the plane after this impact that caused them to be alarmed. Wind was now blowing loudly through the cabin, and this caused things to be tossed around and luggage was even tossed within the plane, much to the passengers and attendant’s dismay. The pilots were about to radio for help when an amazing thing happened.
I saw new skin grow over the plane again, and this time it was a radiant translucent color, much like a skin of milky light, that also shimmered. The pilots were now beyond shocked, and the plane now stabilized and the wind stopped blowing within the cabins. The mess that was made inside the cabins was now gone, and the passengers were all dressed and nicely kempt too, and were amazed. Everything was swept clean inside, as if nothing had ever happened. The passengers looked out the windows to see what had happened. The pilots did not know what to do next, but decided to keep going to their destination since the plane was still flying and everything was okay.
I watched as they flew for onwards awhile, then I saw a magnificent mountain just ahead of them. It towered at an even higher altitude than they were currently on. This mountain was also made of the same translucent milky material as the plane was, and it radiated light from somewhere within the mountain. It was now getting dark, for they had been flying for a long time. So the pilots headed for the mountain, climbing steadily as they went easily, because it lit up the sky.
When they got nearer to the mountain, they pulled on their instruments again, intending to go over the top of this one too, but their instruments didn’t work now. There was no response at all. They looked at each other in amazement and wondered what to do now. They could not steer away, and they could not go over the mountain. They then realized that they were all on a course that could not be changed. I wondered what would happen to them as I watched. I then saw the plane fly right into the mountain and disappeared. The plane and the mountain had now become one.
*** The interpretation is obvious.
There are challenges and changes coming to the Body of Christ (the plane) over the next three years, 2015 to 2017, which will force us all to climb higher in the Spirit, but which will also strip away all religious facades, masks, weaknesses and sins. There will be a period of the removing of all carnal/soulish wisdom and worldly learning that we have been influenced by, and the removing of any baggage and mistaken ideals which hold us down to the lower levels. The Father is going to strip away all than hinders us, all that we rely upon that impedes us from going higher. He will also remove all that is not currently needed for where we are going.
Man does not build the Mountain of the Lord, but it is built by God, and it functions upon the Eternal Kingdom principles of the Father. There are new lessons, which we will have to learn as we rise in each new level. This course change ahead of us will restructure the church from the way she currently operates. It will also bring the newly birthed Habitation into full alignment, and will mature her into what she is truly to become in our generation.
It is time to hold things loosely, and to ask the Father for Hs council. If we heed the council that comes to us from behind the veil, we can navigate these coming years easily and without a lot of impact to ourselves personally. If we ask Him to change us now, we will soar through the transition phases into higher realms unaffected. The transformation process will shake many, so we must help those around us walk out the changes. It is time to build, and to move in and with His Kingdom, on the earth. It is elevation time!
Ezekiel 17:22 Thus says the Lord God: I Myself will take a twig from the lofty top of the cedar and will set it out; I will crop off from the topmost of its young twigs a tender one and will plant it upon a mountain high and exalted. 23 On the mountain height of Israel will I plant it, that it may bring forth boughs and bear fruit and be a noble cedar, and under it shall dwell all birds of every feather; in the shade of its branches they shall nestle and find rest.
Micah 4:1 But in the latter days it shall come to pass that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established as the highest of the mountains; and it shall be exalted above the hills, and peoples shall flow to it. 2 And many nations shall come and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob, that He may teach us His ways, and we may walk in His paths. For the law shall go forth out of Zion and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 3 And He shall judge between many peoples and shall decide for strong nations afar off, and they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
