CHRISTMAS TOWN IN HEAVEN

NostalgiaXmas - Lance Russwurm

Believers ask me a common question during the winter holiday season. What about Christmas Town in heaven? What do I think about those who have seen and experienced Christmas Town in heaven?

Know that I write this in obedience to the dictates of the Lord’s heart. First, please allow me to make it clear that I support all believers, especially the leaders in the Ascension in Christ movement. What I am about to detail is not meant to be against any one individual. I believe that all believers can be deceived, including leaders. That’s why it’s important for all of us to always remain humble and teachable before the Lord. I also want to clarify that we can all be “off” in one, two or more points and still not be classified a “false teacher,” “false prophet,” et cetera. If someone is sincerely seeking to measure up to the plumb line – Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) – we all have the grace to learn. Great grace to us all!!!

I’ve watched, prayed and waited to do this article for a few years now. A couple years ago, the Lord told me that He was going to redeem Christmas. So, instead of assuming what that meant, I asked Him to show me and remained opened to whatever He brought my way. This year Messiah Yeshua made it very clear to me that Hanukkah is the redemption of Christmas, because the Messiah celebrated it and we are to do as Jesus did, if we want to be made into the Messiah’s exact image. Please refer to the “Doing What Jesus Did” and other articles below.

Additionally, this year we had a MM Facilitator (Mystic Mentoring in Christ Facilitator) have some questions about God’s heart in regard to Christmas and Hanukkah. After we had a short discussion about it, everyone in the MM Group Ascension laid down their own understanding, selfish agendas and soulish desires on God’s Altar. Then, we ascended via the Blood of Yeshua to focus solely on the Father’s heart. I teach everyone that discussions before and after a group ascension usually affect the ascension; therefore, we are to be guardians of holiness. This particular ascension group was taken to the Lord’s Wall of Remembrance where we got to gloriously experience Yeshua and His friends celebrating the Feast of Dedication. In Hebrew, Hanukkah means dedication or re-dedication. You are cordially invited to join in this ascended reality => https://vimeo.com/246039449 and check out the post I wrote about it => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/12/07/wall-of-remembrance-reveals-joining-the-messiahs-table/.

We cannot overemphasize that the only one identified in Scripture as celebrating the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah) is the Messiah Himself. “And it was at Jerusalem the Feast of Dedication, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the Temple in Solomon’s Porch” (John 10:22-23 KJV). Even though Messiah Yeshua is the only one plainly shown as celebrating Hanukkah, if you study the term “Solomon’s Porch” or “Solomon’s Colonnade” or the “Portico of Solomon,” you will discover it’s a place of miracles where all believers met. So, not only did Messiah Yeshua celebrate Hanukkah, but it is implied that all believers do too. Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/31/all-believers-meeting-together/.

Please check out what I am about to share with you with the Lord Himself. You will have to lay down this issue on God’s Altar first in order to properly hear His heart. The Bible declares that love covers a multitude of sins. The positive edge to this verse has to do with forgiveness and confidentiality. The other side of this two-edged sword communicates that soulish love literally covers the sin it loves.

What about Christmas Town in heaven? Check with the Lord Himself, but I believe that I have been clearly shown that Christmas Town is in the “second heaven,” which is a false heaven that unsaved New Agers ascend to through their own soulish desires. This false heaven looks so much like the real heaven(s) that believers should be extremely cautious to NOT ascend other than through the Blood of Jesus Christ (Hebrews 10:19). Additionally, believers should never ascend according to their own soulish desires, but focusing on the perfect will or perfect heart of the Father. We can all get off from hitting the bull’s eye of the Father’s heart, if we do anything through our soulish desires.

If this wasn’t a corporate concern affecting His Pure and Spotless Bride, I probably would not have been directed to speak up. Ultimately, this issue and all issues of the heart are between you and your God. Hopefully, my speaking the truth in love can assist us all in our quest to become just like Jesus – the Messiah.

One of the last points that I’d like to make is that Christmas tethers people to the false Messiah (Metatron Mithra) with his demonic control of space-time. Believers are meant to be unlimited. When you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, God placed eternity in your heart. Why would you choose to be bound by 3-D space and the 4th dimension of time when you have been prepared for immortality?

Recall that Yeshua celebrated Hanukkah, not Christmas. Leaders across the spectrum of both Christianity and Judaism are reluctant to tell you a hard truth that will set God’s people free to worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth. The first Anti-Christ specified in Scripture (Antiochus Epiphanes IV) celebrated Christmas, before it was called “Christmas.” He placed a Greek sun god idol on God’s Altar on December 25th; and then, sacrificed a pig on it. Jesus celebrated the antithesis. Hanukkah literally celebrates the overthrow of Christmas on God’s Altar (the overthrow of the love of Christmas in our hearts). See https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2015/12/02/yeshua-celebrated-hanukkah-not-christmas/ and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/new-jerusalem-connection-to-the-messiah/.

If you want to follow in Enoch’s steps where this mortality puts on immortality, then this is a huge key to it all. Enoch came to me, gave me a thumb’s up sign and said: “Happy Hanukkah.” Then Enoch added: “It’s an end-time message… one of them.” As the heavenly golden scribe, Enoch helped me write two books where I fulfilled the vow I made to Yeshua’s face three times.

Blazing New Wine of Hanukkah: Bridal Restoration of DNA book => https://www.amazon.com/Blazing-New-Wine-Hanukkah-Understanding-ebook/dp/B010MHNZMK/

The vow I made to Yeshua’s face three times was I would tell the Christian Church that “Christmas will be the golden calf of America.” Messiah Yeshua and the Archangel Gabriel gave me this divine message about a year after Yeshua epiphaneously came to me with tears in His eyes telling me: “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart.” He paused to let that bombshell sink in, as I was seated near my family’s Christmas Tree. Then Jesus added, “Come out of Babylon. Lay down Christmas, for I WILL have a pure and spotless Bride.” I didn’t hate Christmas when Jesus came to me with this message. I loved it. When I asked Him what to do after we laid down Christmas, Yeshua told me: Do what I did. John 10. I was literally clueless at the time. For more on this true story, please check out http://wp.me/p158HG-4E and/or http://wp.me/p158HG-kH .

Know that celebrating Christmas is not a salvation issue. It’s about the pure and spotless Bride and eternal rewards. I will include an abundance of articles for your perusal below. And by the way, many people have testified that the presence of the Lord comes in the room when they read SANTA-TIZING, which I prayed for every day for 10 years as I wrote this book, because I knew a genuine move of the Spirit is required for this message.

I pray that the spirit of wisdom, understanding, knowledge and revelation speaks to us all.

Give em heaven!!!

NO COST TOO GREAT FOR THE BRIDE

bride-cliff-balance

Have you ever encouraged yourself? Have you ever considered that encouragement came to be before the foundation of the world? Throughout the years when things have gotten difficult with the pure Bridal message God has given me, I have repeatedly said, “No cost is too great for the Bride.”

Recently, I have received several messages from confused bridal hearts who only want to do what is right in God’s eyes. They are hearing Christian leaders rail against those who preach/teach against celebrating Christmas, and they are hearing the opposite from teachers like myself (hopefully, without the railing element).

This article is for the sons of the Living God getting confused through mixed messages given about celebrating a “Christian” Christmas.

Each of us are on a unique path. Christian Leaders are no different. A Christian Leader may be a forerunner in many things, but not in others.

I know that I am a forerunner in this Kingdom Day to give the Christian Church two messages from Yeshua (Jesus): “The mixture of Christmas grieves My heart. Come out of Babylon and lay down Christmas, for I WILL have a pure and spotless Bride,” and “Christmas will be the golden calf of America.” (Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-kH.)

In this vital work for His Bride, I have gotten extensive help from a golden scribe angel, which I found out was Metatron (Melchizedek Enoch) in 2014. Here are some articles about that http://wp.me/p158HG-G4 and http://wp.me/p158HG-FY.

I want to point out that on the fourth day of Hanukkah in 2014, Enoch came to me and shared many things about Christ’s Bride having pure and abundant oil. Then Enoch smiled at me and wished me: “Happy Hanukkah!” He gave me a thumbs-up sign, and added: “It is God’s message in the End Day… one of them.” I thought how interesting that Enoch told me this when I knew he had helped me pull together the “SANTA-TIZING” message (i.e., write the book SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up). Now I understand. Enoch was encouraging me as well as speaking to those alive in the End Day. Remember “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter 3:8).

Did you know that it wasn’t that long ago that genuine lovers of Jesus recognized the paganism of Christmas? Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-DB. No person is infallible, not even our Christian Leaders. As you have probably noticed, not all of us are ready to lay down our sin at the same time.

Unfortunately, most Christian Mystic teachers are currently leading people astray in regard to Christmas due to their personal love for it as well as their unwillingness to believe that their Christmas worship is less than pure. Every believer in the One True God is called to personally examine the lamb of Christmas that is offered as worship according to the plumb line of Scripture. This includes Christian leaders and teachers who have an even greater responsibility for not misleading His flock.

I literally cringe when I hear Christian Teachers leading God’s people astray due to the idols in their own hearts, and I ponder how I must have been guilty of this as well. Lord, please help us all!!! Search our hearts, cleanse us, and make us wholly Yours! Soon there will be undeniable proof as to God’s heart in regard to coming out of Babylon and laying down Christmas.

A genuine examination of both history and Scripture shows us that Christmas falls far short in the purity requirements for bridal lovers of the King who desire to be Wise Virgins.

Doing Christmas is not a salvation issue. It’s about maturation, our rewards and becoming a precious part of His pure and spotless Bride that resonates at the exact same frequency as Yeshua.

If you are confused about what God thinks of a “Christian” Christmas and genuinely want to examine the evidence that demands a verdict, I encourage you to purchase a copy of SANTA-TIZING: What’s wrong with Christmas and how to clean it up => https://www.amazon.com/SANTA-TIZING-Whats-wrong-Christmas-clean/dp/1607911159. Over ten years of full-time research went into this book, which fulfills a vow I literally made to Yeshua’s face. I vowed three times to our Beloved that I would tell the Christian Church that Christmas will be the Golden Calf of America.

Each of us will have to personally give an account before God in regard to our worship (Hebrews 4:13). I believe that Christmas is actually the ultimate test for bridal hearts. It’s literally made in the exact same image as the Golden Calf after all.

If you want to truly hear God on this matter, you will have to lay ALL of your personal desires on God’s Altar in regard to Christmas (i.e., die to your own desires); then listen to His heart. Else you will hear the idols of your own heart, which sounds so similar to God’s voice that it is scary. I’ve learned that lesson the hard way.

P.S. Know that when you ask God questions, there is His permissive will versus His perfect will. God’s permissive will is for immature sons and those who want to do whatever they want to do. God’s perfect will is for mature sons and bridal hearts. Therefore, it is better to ask God questions like: What do you think of Christmas? Does it grieve Your heart? Does Christmas really come from Babylon? Is Christmas a golden calf? Etc. Rather than permissive questions, like: Can I celebrate Christmas? You get the idea.

May you truly hear His heart in this matter, because so much depends on it; including the redemption of your DNA, being transfigured like Enoch and personally marrying the King of Kings (literally becoming one with Him).

Ultimately, this issue is between you and your God.

Give em heaven!!!

CRUX FOR GOD’S DWELLING PRESENCE

Glory

In the beginning God created a pristine garden and a perfect man (Genesis 1:26). This perfect pre-fallen man was a tri-parti being: body, soul and spirit. His perfection was a body clothed in righteousness, a soul that housed the dwelling place of God, and a spirit that constantly communicated with his Creator. Take note, because His people are returning to this heavenly sweet spot, which is our primordial state AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING.

Let’s review the “cherubim” classification for the New Living Creature of Melchizedek before we go into how the shekinah glory (His Dwelling Presence) remains in you and me. Please refer to the TAKING ON COMMON UNION series: http://wp.me/p2k1dQ-i9.

Scripture tells us that CHERUBIM:

[1] Mark the spot for us returning to our pristine primeval state. They stand at the entrance of the Garden of Eden with a flaming sword which turns every way to keep the way to the Tree of Life (Gen. 3:24).

[2] Mark the Dwelling Place of God, because He “dwells between the cherubim” (Psa. 80:1). In God’s Dwelling Places that have been built here on earth (Tabernacle, Temple and the New Jerusalem), cherubim are the most frequently sculpted, engraved, & embroidered figures made according to a heavenly pattern given by the Lord Himself (Exo. 26:1, 26:31-33; 36:8, 36:35; 1 Kings 6:29-35; 2 Chron. 3:7).

[3] Carriers of God’s throne, which is the seat of His divine glory as well as His royal power (1 Chron. 28:18). Cherubim make up the foundation of His fiery chariot throne that bears God’s Kingdom here on earth (Dan. 7:9; Ezek. 1:22-28; 10:1). God’s royal priests set out for the goal of the high calling to become just like Yeshua — the High Priest of the eternal order of Melchizedek. His Melchizedek Company is the Messenger that will facilitate the kingdoms of this world becoming the kingdoms of our Lord, and His Christ (Rev. 11:15).

This is the context that is essential to understanding the requirements needed for the Lord’s special dwelling presence to stay. His shekinah literally requires holiness. People have tried to boil holiness down to a formula of dos and don’ts, but that will always miss the mark because holiness is a love issue. Doing what Scripture prescribes for holiness taps into the prerequisites for which God’s Presence can dwell among us, but we must always take into account that His people’s hearts must be totally engaged when we seek to lovingly obey Him.

Believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob need to consider that the shekinah glory dwelt in the midst of Israel for generations: “The people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption of sons; theirs the divine glory…” (Rom. 9:4). First century believers understood the biblical holiness requirements, which facilitated God’s dwelling presence. When the Holy Spirit fell at Pentecost, the church experienced His manifest presence. They additionally sustained a multi-generational revival for more than three hundred years, because they understood how to live in God’s presence.

For the church to sustain His awe-filled presence today, we need to accurately grasp His minimum requirements for purity and their relevant application in our lives. Please let us learn from history, so we don’t repeat it. God’s dwelling presence departed from the Christian church when the pagan holidays were assimilated into it. Historical proof is seen in the departure of daily miracles from among them. Scriptural proof is spelled out in Ezekiel 8-11. We are not going into this passage in detail today. Please note, as you personally read it that God’s presence slowly and sorrowfully departed, for He longs for His people to repent so His presence may return or remain.

“Son of man, do you see what they are doing … things that will drive Me far from My sanctuary?” (Ezekiel 8:6). The four idolatrous practices listed in Ezekiel 8:3-5, 9-12, 14, 16 originated in Babylon, and the Bible says that they are detestable to God. BTW – These all have to do with pure worship. Today, we will only peek at the fourth and most detestable practice in His eyes that drives Him far from His sanctuary: “So He brought me into the inner court of the LORD’s house; and there, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about twenty-five men with their backs toward the temple of the LORD and their faces toward the east, and they were worshiping the sun toward the east” (Ezekiel 8:16 NKJV).

The fourth and most detestable practice was performed in the inner court of the house of the Lord between the porch and the altar. The inner court symbolizes those who are intimately acquainted with God. The porch is a place of traversing back and forth. It can be akin to a heaven and earth connection. The altar was a platform of sacrificial worship, where worshipers endeavored to meet with their God. So these twenty-five or so men, who were bowing down to the sun with their backs toward the temple of the Lord, were His close companions. They were people who knew and loved the Lord; yet they still grievously bowed down to and worshiped the sun, whether they acknowledged the fact or not.

It is not until Ezekiel 9:3 that the departure of God’s presence begins. His shekinah glory moves over His fiery chariot throne – a set apart remnant of His people. Then, His shekinah glory is carried by the Living Creature from the inner court to the threshold of His sanctuary. The Lord hesitates there to see if His people will notice His leaving. Will they repent and welcome His manifest presence back? He waits, then in Ezekiel 10:19 God’s glory moves further away to the eastern gate. He waits again. His people still won’t repent of their idolatry, so God’s shekinah glory moves out of Jerusalem (the city of our God) across the Kidron Valley to the Mount of Olives (Ezekiel 11:23). Then God waits again for the people to turn from their idols. Where’s does Scripture say that the Lord will return? The Mount of Olives both spiritually and physically (Zechariah 14:4).

The pagans in the fourth century recognized their own solar cults in the church’s adoption of the Nativity of the Unconquered Sun (Mithra’s Winter Festival). They recognized the church assimilation of their pagan practices in the orienting cathedrals to the east, worshiping on “sun day,” and celebrating the birth of the sun god deity at the Winter Solstice. Throughout antiquity, all sun gods across all cultures celebrated their birthday on the ancient winter solstice – December 25th – before the Roman shift in time. The Catholic Encyclopedia even documents that the Nativity or Mithra’s Winter Festival has a strong claim on our December 25th date. Never mind the fact that Constantine had the Vatican built atop the hill where the Mithras cult worshiped the sun. History records that it had become common practice in the fifth century for worshipers entering St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome to turn at the door, put their backs to the altar, and bow down to worship the rising sun. See Ezekiel 8:16.

When the Lord says that “Christmas will be the golden calf of America,” He is telling us that it is idolatry in His eyes. The Lord has given each of us the responsibility to prepare a place for Him: “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (1 John 3:3). His shekinah glory cannot dwell where there is idolatry; therefore, His dwelling presence can not, and will not, coexist with this golden calf we call Christmas. Idolatry is the crux that determines whether His shekinah glory will merely visit His people or dwell among them. If it’s your heart-of-hearts to be part of Yah’s glorious Melchizedek and Bridal companies, you will have to pass through this fire.
