The Order For The Sons of God
Words of Rose are Bolded
“If you have any intention of not going all of the way,
you’d better not hear the message.”
Rose M. Aluli
This message was given
To the Church
On July 31, 1979.
The Order sets forth the requirements of the Sons of God.
Do not read this message until you have fully determined that you are going ALL THE WAY with Christ.
This is how serious this message is to the Church.
This is not what you call a hard message. It is just absolute facts of the Bible. I want you all to relax. It is just strictly scriptures of what God demands of Sons.
For I have no man likeminded, who will naturally care for your state. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s. Now is that the talk for a Son? That is a different realm because the Sons will not seek their own, but they will seek everything for Jesus Christ and of him, and for others. For all seek their own, not the things which are Jesus Christ’s.
For indeed he Timothy was sick nigh unto death: but God had mercy on him; and not on him only, but on me also, lest I should have sorrow upon sorrow.
Because for the work of Christ Speaking of Timothy. he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me. He was working so hard for the cause of Christ that he neglected the care of his own body, and it almost took his life.
Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe. Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision. For we are the circumcision, or Hebrews which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. He had no confidence, not even in his own flesh. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more: Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee; He had a lot to boast of. Amen. He was a true Hebrew, Amen, of the tribe of Benjamin. Concerning zeal, Now here is where one scripture says they had zeal without knowledge. And he had a zeal without knowledge, or understanding. persecuting the church He thought he was doing God a service because he thought Christianity was false and Christ was not true; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. Concerning the law he was blameless. He walked absolutely after the law. We don’t walk after Christ in that kind of perfection, and here he was, walking absolutely pure after the law. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Now do not tell me that he did not have to do some changing and give some things up. Everything of his past had to go, all of his teachings. And he sat at the feet of Gamaliel, the greatest teacher of his time. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, I hope we are getting a hold of this because we can do no less as Sons. We can do no less. No less than that. He said ‘for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus.’ Amen. And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, That is what he had under the law, was his own righteousness. which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, Not faith in Christ but the faith of Christ because he followed after Christ in the faith that Christ had in the Father, knowing that he was the Son of God. And we have to know who we are. Amen. We are called and chosen Sons of God. the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; We want to know him after his resurrection with all the power, but we do not want the suffering. Am I right? But he was desiring the suffering because he knew that through suffering he could attain. Now suffering in the flesh alone, without the Spirit or without following Christ, to suffer the reproach of Christ, unless he followed the Spirit into these places, it would have been accounted nothing unto him. But he was seeking after this power of his resurrection and the fellowship of his suffering that he might be made conformable or be formed into that Christ like life.
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended or captured of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 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 anything ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, Now he realized he had not attained to that place of perfection yet. 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. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: And we know in other gospels why he had to speak this way, because they refused to follow after the Spirit. Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly Or their own desires, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in The Spirit, or in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: Now we know that Paul and the rest of them, God didn’t lift them off to some other planet, but heavenly places in the Spirit. And this is what he is talking about; when Paul was caught up into the third heaven, he did not go anywhere. Amen. But the Spirit was revealed to him, the high order of God, the very highest order of God. Amen.
Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. And we know that we cannot do this. Our job is to obey the Spirit. Amen.
And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life. Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. In other words, don’t be anxious. Be moderate in all things. Don’t be anxious before men. Amen. Be careful for nothing; Or don’t be anxious about that. but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, He is showing us how to live here whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, This is Paul. do: and the God of peace shall be with you. Do you hear what he is saying? He was following Christ to the best of his knowledge, and he was not ashamed to say that. But I am going to give you a real disappointment after awhile. I hope you can bear it. Out of the scriptures. It will all be scriptures. But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity. Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I don’t think we have reached that yet. Do you? I know both how to be abased Or to be put down, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Or to be made low and to be made prosperous. Amen. It seems like we have to go through these things in life. We have to have the experience of these things if we are really going to go on and really know what he is saying here. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Not just some things but all things. Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction. Or help in my affliction. Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity. Now this is the verse that I want you to see. Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. That the reward might be added to their account for their giving unto the work of the gospel; that Paul could go forth in the gospel and preach the gospel. This is the law of God that anything that they do bears fruit.
For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the gospel; which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, This is the Word that brings forth the fruit. as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:
For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
Now this is what the Lord had shown me: the law of grace versus the law of the Spirit.
Did you know that there is a difference between the law of grace and the law of the Spirit? Did you know that the law of grace is for the believer in the nominal church, and that there is a great difference between that and the law of the Spirit for the Sons? There is a great dividing line in the scriptures. He gave me many illustrations today to prove it. There is the gospel, and then there is the kingdom. They are entirely different. And yet you have to come through the law of grace to obtain the law of the kingdom. This is why every once in a while he will bring someone out of the church system because he has called them from the foundation of the world, and they have been with God from the beginning, like the scripture says, to fulfill his work upon the earth as kings and priests unto him in the kingdom. We are entirely different. It is an entirely different message. And I will try – with the help of the Spirit – to show you what our callings are. This is why I said if you do not feel the true calling of God on your life, you won’t even understand. But we will be responsible, for us who do understand.
I John 2:1-2
He is speaking to the church. My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: and he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. Now what is he saying here? There is a church world that the blood of Christ constantly covers their sin because they are just walking in the flesh realm and following after salvation. They are not called to the high order of Sonship, and so they can just kind of goof around. You see people getting by with a lot of stuff, and it seems like all they have to do is ask God to forgive them and they are forgiven. And they go right on their merry way and the next day or two, they do the same thing over, but they will never grow, because they are not called into the order of Sonship. This is an entirely different order. And believe me, before we get through tonight you probably will wish you were never called, when you see what the scripture says about it.
I John 2:12-14
I write unto you, little children, because your sins are forgiven you for his name’s sake. I write unto you, fathers, Wow, now that is different. because ye have known him that is from the beginning. We come out of the Father. Do you remember the scriptures? We come out of the Father. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father. In a way they do, if the Lord decides to reveal him to them, if that is his plan. I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. The Father hath begotten us. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, You do not just hear it and then go on out to do your own thing, but the Word of God abides in you. and ye have overcome the wicked one.
The children’s antidote… and you know what an antidote is. If you take poison, you have to take something to counteract it. Amen. So the children’s antidote for failure is Christ’s blood and grace.
I John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. He completely blots it out. And having lived just in a saved state (and I praise God for that because it gives me a knowledge of this having lived without the Holy Ghost in just a saved, washed, born again experience), I know that it was impossible to live free from sin, absolutely impossible, because I did not have the Holy Ghost and the power within me to help me live an overcoming life. I did not go out and do any gross sin. Do you understand? But, I mean, it was just impossible, the temper and the misjudgments and everything because we were not led by the Spirit. If we confess and recognize our sin, he says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
…though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; All sin is forgiven at salvation and thereafter, if confessed, while we walk in that realm. Now look, we are in the grace realm here, just the grace of being saved, Amen. The church is obedience to faith. Now the kingdom is obedience to the Spirit. Do you understand? Am I getting it clear? The church order is obedience to faith, the faith of Christ. But the kingdom is obedient to the Spirit. We are not led anymore just by sight and by what we hear around and by preaching and so on and so forth. But when we come into the kingdom realm, then we have to be led absolutely by the Spirit in everything in life. We are Sons of God. We have to walk after the Spirit. “For as many as are led by the Spirit are the Sons of God”, and Sons also of the kingdom of heaven, which is the same thing. This is a new relationship for this hour.
Now, we have heard these scriptures over and over until they do not mean anything to us. We do not know what they are saying. But the Lord let me see today what he was saying. For as many as are led, I mean led, by the Spirit, really led by the Spirit, continually in everything that we do, we have to be led by the Spirit.
Now as we get on in the message, you are going to see how important this is and how we cannot come into the kingdom unless we are strictly led by the Spirit. This is a new revelation for this hour to bring forth perfected Sons for his glory.
We do not know the way. The only thing we know is the Spirit, and the Spirit knows the way. We do not know the way to perfection, but the Spirit knows the way to perfection and he knows how to bring these Sons to glory. God will deal with each one of us differently than with the church in general. Every Son is going to be dealt with differently than the old church order. Now since many of us have come out of church order, don’t you see that there is a new life, a new walk, a new way that we are being led even though we do not understand it all. We do not know it all, but yet we know that it is something different. It is entirely different. You go back into the old church order, you will find out you are unhappy there. There is just something that is not right. We are used to the freedom of the Spirit and to see the manifestations of the Spirit and to feel the life of the Spirit.
He disciples us as a Father with his Son so we might inherit his kingdom as did Jesus. Now the same way that he disciples us, he discipled Jesus the same way, that he might know the Father. So Christ is our example. Amen. Christ had to know the Spirit, and he had to follow the Spirit even into the wilderness after he received the baptism; and be willing to be led of the Spirit right into the wilderness to be tempted, that he might learn to know God, the Father; that he might learn to know the voice of the Father. And we have to do exactly the same thing. We have to follow the Spirit wherever the Spirit leads if we expect to inherit the kingdom with Christ. Our relationship to God has to be exactly on the same basis as Christ’s relationship was to the Father. Now if he is our example, if he is our elder brother and if we are going to inherit everything with him, and he was a flesh man like we are flesh people, and if God is leading us into the fullness the same as he led Christ into the fullness, then we have to follow his pattern by the Spirit. He followed the Spirit. Now we cannot look at Jesus Christ and read about him and try to follow in his steps. That is a lot of baloney. I am talking about the Spirit. We have to follow the same Spirit that led Jesus Christ when he was baptized in the water and the Spirit come upon him that took him into the wilderness. And we have to be led by that same Spirit and give ourselves completely, unreservedly, to the Spirit of God, who is the only one that knows how to lead us on in to that place.
Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, The Spirit. if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have lattained, or apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 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, As far as we have gone. 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. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) Do you see what he says? There arethose that are attaining just to earthly things, not following the Spirit, just earthly things. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Which is the Spirit. Now we have been apprehended by God, now it just says that we have been apprehended by God to grow up into the fullness of Christ. That is what our calling is for.
What the Spirit wants us to know, that we need to have an understanding of the scriptures and that is the difference between the church world and the Sons. There is a straight line from scripture to scripture, all through the scriptures.
He is bringing us into this relationship with him now. This is the most cautious time in my whole lifetime of serving God to where I have to be very careful of the scriptures, that I don’t misinterpret the scriptures and I have to follow the Spirit very closely in everything that I teach, to make sure that everything is of him. Amen.
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. In other words, if we are not led by the Spirit, we are not Sons of God. We are just children of God out here, playing in the marketplace. Amen. Right? Now do you understand that scripture a little better? About the children. Amen.
Howbeit when he, Now this was before the Holy Ghost had come into the people. the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: This is a different relationship than grace through faith. There were many that had been saved up to this time, but Jesus was telling them, “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you into all truth.” So we have that promise when we receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and there are many that will be filled with the Holy Ghost and will be overcomers, but they will not be ruling and reigning with Christ. I found that out today in the scriptures. There are many Holy Ghost filled people in the churches. They won’t be overcomers, but that is a different realm again. But the called out Sons are called to rule and reign with Christ. There is a different relationship than grace through faith, but perfect obedience to the Spirit within. This is what the Sons of God must walk in: perfect obedience to the Spirit, not just halfway. Many overcomers, as I say, will walk in the Spirit, but they will never grow into perfection into that, “Be ye perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Those are the ones that are coming in, the called out chosen ones of God, Amen, called to be Sons.
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. Now no man that I know of up to this time has kept every commandment of the Father like Jesus did. But he is giving us a secret here, or a recipe, of what the Sons of God will be.
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. We will not come into this place of abiding into his perfect love until we are purged from the flesh and the flesh desires. Now the Spirit will direct us into that. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. Now no one has attained unto the fullness of the joy yet. But Jesus dropped these good little nuggets here and there so that we would have an understanding as Sons, and it is just now being revealed in the last few years. And I say such revelation in the last few months that is going everywhere, not just for this little group, but everywhere you are hearing of revelation coming forth concerning these things. This is my commandment, Jesus says, not the commandment of the Father under the law. Do you see what he is saying? This is the new commandment that you love one another. Remember when he said, “I give unto thee a new commandment?” So, we can’t hook this up with the law or grace. This is the commandment of Sons, for the Sons. This is Jesus’ commandment. And this is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Moses’ law was not what Jesus was following, but he followed the Spirit of God the Father because he was the Son, the first fruits, Amen, the first Son.
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: Now I know I walked in this realm. I only believed what I heard, what some preacher told me, and I was as happy as I could be. I was like a little child just tickled to death of my salvation. Praise God for that realm. But my, I didn’t want to stay there. I don’t want to stay where I am now. I want to finish this race. Amen. Henceforth I call you not servants; Now the Sons are not servants. You remember? He said, “Even though they’re under governors and tutors, but someday, they will become full heirs. for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Now that hasn’t happened yet, has it? We do not know all things. Amen. But it is coming. Ye have not chosen me, We had no choice in this. We had no choice to be called into this realm. but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. It is coming. We have not attained, or neither has anyone else attained, that anything that we ask for, the Father will do, because we would ask out of the flesh. But when we get a full knowledge of him like he has promised, then we will walk in the Spirit like Christ did. These things I command you, that ye love one another. Now the Lord said today, “The law of the Spirit is much more strenuous than Moses’ law.” You think they had an easy time? That was the hard way they kept the law. “But the law of the Spirit is much harder, much more strenuous,” the Lord says. We are going to find that out as we keep walking with the Lord.
Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust He says, “I say, I say.” Here is Jesus’ commandment again to bring in Sons. This is the walk of Sons. Remember now, we are talking about Sons here. But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Because this Spirit that we are supposed to be following would never lead you into lust. It would lead you into purity and perfection. We are not following the Spirit if we are looking after these things that way. Amen.
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Under the law. An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. Jesus is bringing us to the place where we could stand like he did and have our beards pulled out, to be slapped in the face, to be spit upon. That is the work of the Spirit to bring this soul under subjection to God. He does not do that to punish you. Amen. But it is to break the will of the flesh, that we can be subject to God and to the Spirit of God, which Jesus had to go through, that the flesh would become nothing, that it would be willing; that he could even lay down his life if need be for the Spirit, by the Spirit. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. This is going to be some people, isn’t it?
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say The commandment of Christ. unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Now here is for the Sons. So was this other.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. We are coming to a place where we cannot even have the privilege of having an evil thought. I saw something when he said this. Now you can go to your pastors, you can go to your own natural fathers, to anyone in a normal church, just a church, and they will laugh at you. They will say, “That was just for Christ; no man can attain to it,” because they won’t understand the law of the Spirit. Amen. But it is the Word. When it comes right down to it, you cannot deny in verse 48 when he says, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Now we know we cannot attain that after the flesh without the Spirit, but as we follow the Spirit. We cannot come into this in the law of grace or under the law of Moses; it could not be done. But it can be attained by the law of the Spirit. Only by the Spirit that dwells in us, as we let him have his way, can we ever attain unto this perfection, attain unto the fullness of the Sons of God. And as a Son, God requires the same from us as he did his Son, Jesus.
Do you think he is going to send his Son here and put him through this hell on earth and require any less of us? No. No way. We must assume this responsibility. This is one reason why I said tonight, “Boy, if you do not want to go on, you had better not hear the message.” Because we answer for what we hear, and if we say that we have committed ourselves to the call of Sons of God and do not walk up to the light that we have…
Suppose we have accepted this call and relationship to the Father. Most of us here have been willing to accept it and we make bold remarks about how we would give our life, and so on and so forth, for Christ. We have to. Amen. I do not mean a physical death. Some of us may have to. Paul had to, but I am going to speak on that later. What happens if we turn away and follow the command or wishes of our parents, relatives, pastors, husbands and wives, or children and so forth? What does the scripture say will happen to us? If we disobey the Spirit that calls us to do something, or to commit our lives, and we listen to anyone but the Spirit; we have to be totally committed to the Spirit. We are not debtors to the flesh. Have you read that scripture? We are not debtors to the flesh. We are debtors to the Spirit. We are not debtors to any flesh. Do you hear that?
I don’t care if it is your mother, your father. Jesus says, “Who is my mother and my father?” Remember? And so on and so forth, “And my brothers and sisters, but him that doeth the will of the Father. They’re my brothers and sisters.” So we cannot come in to be brethren of Christ (and he calls us brethren); he said he was not ashamed to call us brethren; and we cannot become brothers of Christ unless we become followers of God just like he did. There are too many scriptures on it. We are just kidding ourselves if we think we are going to get by any other way.
Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, we have left all, and have followed thee. And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, Now you would think that he would say, “Stick to your family,” wouldn’t you? You would not expect this out of the Lord. But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; He threw it right in there with them, didn’t he? and in the world to come eternal life.
Now here is what Jesus thinks of us.
And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom The kingdom. Amen. The kingdom. of God. Now that is pretty plain. If we start out for the kingdom and we just decide we are going to quit, I want to tell you, there is something that is going to happen to these quitters and I am going to get to that pretty soon. We are either going all of the way once we start in this kingdom realm, or we are in deep, deep trouble. Is there an antidote for us who have failed to obey the Spirit and our commitment? Is there any way out? Is there any way out, whatsoever? Now, we found the way out, that antidote for the grace in the children. See, we found that out. It is the blood of Christ and the mercy and, “O Lord, forgive me,” and then they go on the street and play some more. And they are in that realm, but they will never attain unto the kingdom. God is looking for an army that will absolutely obey his command to follow the Spirit, to follow God. And he is going to have one. He is going to have this army. Amen. And we will come under full command of the Spirit, absolutely obedient, absolutely obedient. We cannot vary in one point, not one point, or we are not fit for the kingdom. I said, “Is it grace through faith and by confession?” No.
Now I want you to get these scriptures because they are very, very important.
For it is impossible Impossible. for those who were once enlightened, Now look, there is a difference in being saved and being enlightened. Amen. There is a difference in having your sins forgiven and going out and committing sin and having the grace and the blood of Christ continually cover your sins in that realm than it is to be called by the Spirit, Sons of God. For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word Which is Christ. of God, and the powers of the world to come, Some of us have tasted these powers, haven’t we? Amen. We have felt the powers of God in unusual manifestations of the Spirit. Now that is what he is talking about. If they shall fall away, These that have come into these places such as we have. to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
For if we sin wilfully Willfully. after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, Remember he said the truth. This is what it is all about. there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. And what are the adversaries? Self-will, lust, carnality, flesh. No more grace. No more mercy. No forgiveness. Is that what the Word just said? Seeing we crucify Christ afresh. Now there is some hope for us. Do not give up. But I want to tell you something. I do not want the way that the Bible says we are going to get by with, because it is a fearful thing. It is fearful once you are called to the high calling of God and do not accept it and take your own way.
If we can understand that this is God’s Word, and this is what we are going to be judged by. This is the very word that we will be judged by, right here. And if you know that you are called to the high calling of God – and I do not think you would be here unless you were called to the high calling of God. I mean it.
For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every Who? son whom he receiveth. If you want to be a Son, just remember, you are going to get whipped and chastened because he says he “chasteneth and scourgeth every son whom he receives.”
Now I know that he has received me as a Son of God. I know this, and I know that I have been chastened time and time again severely through the years, and it just draws me closer to him because I know he is doing the work that he said he was going to do in me; and I know that I can come in no other way because I am a no good flesh person with an evil heart. And this has to be done away with by my subjection to God by the Spirit. This is why I like to lay out in front of him and say, “Lay it on, Lord. Get rid of it. Get rid of it. Just get rid of this flesh.” Because if you know you have to go through the fire, it is better to just go through it. Ask him to put you through it. Why prolong the ordeal by sliding around, Amen, and trying to play games with the Spirit? If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; If ye endure chastening. But now you can back out, but woe be unto you if you do. If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? I have to keep referring you back to the two orders of God. The orders of grace and forgiveness and faith to past that, into the order of being led by the Spirit. They are the Sons of God. They are the Sons of God. And there is no other way we can come in, but by the order that God has ordained. It is not my order. This is the order that the scripture says that we have to go by. But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, All the Sons. then are ye bastards, and not sons. You do not have a father. That is what a bastard is. You just do not have a father. Amen. Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? He is the Father of spirits that will lead us into this complete Spirit life led by the Spirit and you cannot get in there any other way but by a knowledge of Jesus Christ through the Spirit, by the Word, through the Word. For they verily for a few days These natural fathers. chastened us after their own pleasure; but he God. for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Do you see why we have to be chastised? That we might become holy like he is holy. Amen. Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised Or trained thereby. We are trained by chastisement. This is the way we are trained in the Spirit, as the Spirit leads us into chastisement that we might be perfected and learn how to follow the Spirit. So our relationship as Sons is different from that of children or church realm, entirely different. I will guarantee you because I tried it, that if you go back into the church realm, you will just, well, you will just dry up. You will lose all your desire even, if you stay there, to even become a Son. You will lose your desire to ever go on to be kings and priests unto God. And first thing you know, the things that were taught to you, will become like nothing and you won’t even have faith in him anymore and you will just go on back and you will be back in that realm, but watch out. There is something coming for you if you are called to be Sons and you have made that commitment and have not kept it because the scriptures show us that.
It says, “What is the antidote? Though we cry,” now here, if we turn back, he says, “Though we cry in despair and repentance,” though we should, if we turn back, “And we cry to God with all of our hearts saying, ‘God forgive me, God forgive me,’ there remaineth no more sacrifice for sin.” If you do not believe it, go back and read Hebrews 6:4-6.
Even though you cry for repentance.
For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance;
Because there is no repentance. seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
His grace does not come down to remove it. He does not come down to remove that sin, but he says, “You just look for the judgment of God,” which we read in Hebrews, the 10th chapter. There is nothing but chastisement that can come to you after that, but we are still afflicted. As you go from place to place (and I have seen people that go from place to place to place), looking for a deliverance, looking for deliverance. They go and they have had a thousand preachers lay hands on them, maybe, and they go away full of despair with no deliverance because they are trying to find it through repentance and there is a Word that tells you how, that we have never been taught.
You cannot find, once you break away from God, once you have been called to the walk of the Spirit and chosen of God to be a Son of God and you go away and do not fulfill the call – this is the thing; it is disobedience; that is the sin – once this happens to us, to ever go back to repentance, you cannot repent your way back in. He says there remaineth no repentance. There is none, Amen, but the fearful, looking for the judgment of God. They are still afflicted and live in despair and I have watched it. The antidote for the church people does not work anymore. It just does not work. The antidote is not the same, but chastisement and judgment.
But the children, can go ahead and get healed after they confess and go on as before because that is the order. That is the realm they are in. I know. I have been there. Man, I would get up to the altar when I would do something wrong or say something wrong and I would just cry and say, “God forgive me. God forgive me.” And man, he would just lift my spirit and I would just know, “Oh, thank you, Lord,” and I could just feel all cleansed and good. But you try it now. You are going to find out it is a lot different. You have to go back to that commitment. But Sons of God will be chastened until obedience is learned by the things that he suffers. That is scripture. Amen.
And I have seen Sons of God that were called to be Sons, leave the ministry and fall under afflictions because they would not walk after the Spirit. Now God promised that he would not put more on us than we are able to bear, Amen, but it is going to cost you something: never to return. Though chastened by God until they again come into obedience. They have to go right back to that place where they left off obedience. God has not changed one bit from how he was to the children of Israel. Go back to that place of commitment that you made to him.
But they are never the same. They seem to always be under affliction of some sort until they go by death; either absolute death to the flesh in natural death or absolute death to the flesh to all desires. Amen, but it will never be the same. I have watched them come and go through many years, those that had the high calling on their lives.
I did not just start teaching this message yesterday; I have known the Son of God message for at least twenty years, that I have watched those that were called Sons of God. I have known for at least twenty years that I was called to be a Son of God. We have taught this message for years, but not the same. I did not see the difference until today. How God has the grace for the children and the chastisement for the Sons, without forgiveness, because you are a chosen vessel of the Lord and have failed to keep your vow, or commitment to the Father. When you make a commitment to the Father, he takes you at your word. He takes you at your word. He says it is better to have never made a vow than to make a vow and break it. We can be healed, but we will never be restored, because he says so. We will never be fully restored, but we can be healed if we go back and do the work.
I have watched some preachers; this is what I am on because I am a preacher and I feel like I have to pick on myself first, Amen. Once they are called into this high calling, and if they do not go back, maybe they have gone to tending a bar, or grocery clerk, or whatever, but they are miserable. I have watched at least a dozen of them that I know personally, that this has happened to. They say, “I am going to quit the ministry. It is too hard.” Things are going rough because there is a little chastisement coming against them, and a little fire. It would get a little hot, so they quit. So they have gone to selling insurance; one sold insurance; another man bought a grocery store. I know all kinds of them. But there was nothing but trouble. God did not bless them in anything that happened. They were nothing but under bondage and fear. I know of a couple that tried to come back and went into the ministry. And I only know of one, (and I am not too sure of him because I have lost track of him,) but about ten years ago one of them that I know actually made a try at coming back. And his ministry was not the same, but he was trying to really make a dedication to God again.
But remember this judgment of God. This is the Word of God and it has to come to pass. But the chastening hand of the Lord will be lifted if we go back and do what we were first told to do. But it is just like a child. You might chasten that child, and he might come to the place where he is obedient, but you are always going to keep an eye on him because you have lost some trust in him. Amen. But we cannot come back by repentance. I want you to know that. If you break away from God once you have made that commitment, you are going to be under chastisement of God.
