This is the Word of the Lord for The Church RIGHT NOW!!

"The BURDEN of the word of the LORD to all of Israel by Malachi and Deanna Rae Parsons".
                                            THE BOOK OF MALACHI CH. 1-4

I have LOVED you, saith the LORD. Yet you say, Where and HOW have you loved us? Wasn't Esau Jacob's brother!? saith the LORD: And yet I loved Jacob, And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage a waste for the dragons of the wilderness! But Edom (another name for Esau) says "We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places! Thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall build, but I will THROW down; and they shall be called,"The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD will have indignation forever". And your eyes shall see it, and you WILL say, "The LORD will be magnified around the border of Israel" HA! If a son honors his father, and a servant his master: if then I AM a Father, where is mine honor?! And if I AM a master, where is my fear says the LORD of hosts from all of you!! ALL you priests, that despise my Name.You say, "Where and HOW have we despised your name? You offer polluted bread upon MY altar!! and you say, "Where have we polluted YOUR alter?" It's in WHAT you say, that makes the table of the LORD contemptible! And if you offered a blind sacrifice, IS IT NOT evil? and if you offered a lame and sick sacrifice, IS IT NOT evil? Try and offer it right now to your Governor; and see IF he would be pleased with you, or even accept you as a person? saith the LORD of hosts? And now, I pray that you, beg God that He will be gracious to you!! This has happened by your own means!! Will HE even regard you as a person saith the LORD of hosts?? Who is there, even among YOU that would shut the doors for Free or for NOTHING? nor would you kindle fire on MY altar for Free of for NOTHING! I have NO pleasure in you! saith the LORD of hosts, and neither will I accept an offering at your hand, neither from the rising of the sun or even until it's going down, INSTEAD my NAME shall be great among the Gentiles!and in every place incense shall be offered to My Name, a pure offering!! for my Name shall be GREAT among the HEATHEN (hello!), saith the LORD of hosts. Because YOU have profaned it, (HIS NAME) when YOU say such things! "The table of the LORD is polluted; and the fruit that is there too, even the MEAT is contemptible! You also say, "Behold, what a weariness this is!! and you just snuff at it, saith the LORD of hosts! and you brought that which was torn, and lame, and sick; YOU HAVE brought this offering to ME, should I accept this from your hand? saith the LORD. But CURSED is the deceiver, that has in his flock a male, and vows it, and sacrifices to the Lord a corrupt thing!! for I AM a GREAT KING, saith the LORD of hosts, and my Name is a dreadful thing among the heathen!! And now, ALL OF YOU priests, this commandment is for you! If you will not hear, and if you will not take this to heart, to give glory BACK to my name saith the LORD of hosts, "I WILL even NOW send a curse on you, and I WILL curse ALL your blessings: YES! I have cursed them already! because you already DO NOT take this to heart!! Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread shit upon your faces, the VERY shit you produce after your solemn feasts; and it will only take one man to drag you away to it!! And you WILL KNOW that I have sent this commandment to you, that my covenant might be with Levi , saith the LORD of hosts (the tribe of the High Priests) My covenant was with him for life and peace; and I gave them both to him because of the FEAR HE HAD FOR ME. He was afraid before my NAME. The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and and equity, and he did turn MANY away from their iniquity. BUT the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at HIS MOUTH: for HE is the MESSENGER of the LORD of hosts! But NOW you are being REMOVED out of the way! You have caused many to stumble at the LAW; you have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts!! So BECAUSE of THIS, I ALSO make you contemptible and abased before ALL people, in accordance to the way you have NOT kept my ways, but have been partial in the LAW! Have we not all ONE Father? Hasn't ONE God created all of us? Why do we deal treacherously every man with his brother, by profaning the covenant of your fathers? Judah (The Christian Gentiles) have dealt treacherously, and an abomination has been committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; because of Judah. (The Christian Gentiles) THEY have profaned the holiness of the LORD which they at one time loved, and they NOW have even married the daughter of a strange god!  The LORD will cut off the man that does this, the master, the scholar, or even if it comes out of the tabernacles of Jacob from him that offers an offering to the LORD of hosts! And ALL of this you have done over and over again; You cover the altar of the LORD with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, as if there is any regard for your offering that exists any more, or that I would receive it with goodwill from your hand if there was. Yet you say, Why? Because the LORD has been A long standing witness between YOU and the BRIDE from your youth, against ALL who have dealt treacherously: EVEN THOUGH she is YOUR companion, and the wife of your covenant?? And wasn't it HE that made the two one? If ONLY you had just a residue of the Spirit. So there could at least be one left? That HE might seek a godly seed! Therefore YOU BETTER take heed in your spirit! and let NO ONE deal treacherously with the bride of their youth.  For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that "HE HATES the hiding away in secret: like one who covers the marks of violence with a garment, saith the LORD of hosts!!! therefore YOU BETTER take heed in your spirit, that you DO NOT deal  treacherously!!You have so wearied the LORD with your words! And Yet still you say, "Where and HOW have we wearied you? "When you say", "Every one that does evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he takes delight in them! or, Where is the God of judgment? Behold, I will send my messengers, and they shall prepare the way before ME!!: THEN the Lord, whom you seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the MESSENGER (JESUS) of the covenant, whom you delight in: Behold, HE shall COME, saith the LORD of hosts! But who of you may abide and stand up on the day of HIS coming? and who shall stand when HE appears? for He is like a refiner's fire, and like a washers soap:  And HE shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and HE shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may finally offer to the LORD an offering of righteousness. THEN the offering of Judah and Jerusalem will be pleasant to the LORD again, as in the days of old, and as in the former years. And I will come near to you to judge you; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false testifiers, and against those that oppress the laborer in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and those that turn and look away from a stranger, and from doing what is right, and that DO NOT FEAR ME, saith the LORD of hosts. For I AM the LORD, I change not; that's why you sons of Jacob are not consumed!! Even from the days of your fathers you went away from me and MY ordinances, and have not kept them!! Return to me, and I will return to you, saith the LORD of hosts. But you say, Where and HOW shall we return? Will a man rob God?!! Yet you have robbed me. But you say, Where and HOW have we robbed YOU? In tithes and offerings!! You are NOW cursed with this curse: for you have robbed ME, and this whole nation!!! Bring NOW all the tithes you have collected into MY STOREHOUSES,  those collected so that there would continually be food for MY household, YOU test ME!! NOW and THEN! saith the LORD of hosts!! DID I NOT open for you the windows of heaven, and poured  you out a blessings that there wasn't even enough room to receive it all!!? And I  rebuked the devourer for your sakes, that he did not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither your vine that cast her fruit before its time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. And all nations called you blessed: for you were a delightful land, saith the LORD of hosts.BUT, Your words have been proud against ME, saith the LORD. Yet you say, What have we spoken that is SO BAD against YOU? "You have said", "It is ALL in vain and a farce to serve God: for what profit "DO WE GET" for having to keep HIS ordinances, and for having walked mournfully before the LORD of hosts?" And now all those that "are called" that were proud will be HAPPY; yes, they that worked wickedness are being set up; yes, those that tempt God can be delivered. Only THEN and IF they fear the LORD and speak often to one to another: and the LORD hears it, and upon hearing it a book of remembrance will be written before HIM for them that fear the LORD, and that think constantly upon his NAME. And they shall be MINE, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I have formed all of my JEWELS; and I will spare them, as a man spares his own son that serves him. Then you shall return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serves God and him that serves HIM NOT. For, BEHOLD, THE DAY IS COMING, that WILL burn like an oven; and all the proud, yes, and all those that do wickedly, will be stubble: and the day that IS COMING shall burn them ALL up, saith the LORD of hosts, that there won't be left root or branch. "But to you that fear my NAME shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and you go forth, and spring FREE as calves released from the slaughter stalls! And YOU WILL TREAD DOWN THE WICKED; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I do ALL of this saith the LORD of hosts.You NEED to remember the laws of Moses my servant, which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,with my real statutes and judgments.Behold, I will send YOU in the spirit of Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And YOU shall turn the heart of the fathers back to their children, and the heart of the children back to their fathers, if you DO NOT I will come and smite you with a curse!! Amen!!!

Is "Once Saved, Always Saved" Biblical?



  First off on the topic of Once Saved, Always Saved, I would like to state that all we can offer for a debate on this issue is what is already clearly laid out for us ALL in scripture. We will attempt to stay only on what we believe to be the obvious interpretation of scripture on the matter and not twist or manipulate words to try to force our view . If you ask us if the teaching of "Once saved, always saved" is a biblical concept, in all honesty the very first scriptures that pop to mind are:

Ex 32:32-34
"Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin--; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written. And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book. Therefore now go, lead the people unto [the place] of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them".

Deut 9:13-14
"Furthermore, the LORD spoke to, saying, I have seen this people, and Behold, they are a stiffnecked people: Let me alone, that I may destroy them and blot out their name from under heaven: and I will make thee a nation mightier and greater than they".

Deut 29:20
"The LORD will not spare him, but in the anger of the LORD and HIS jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven".

Psalm 69:28 "Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous".

Let's take a closer look at this word "blot". In Hebrew it is machah and in Greek it is exaleipho and both are translated as "to destroy, to blot, to wipe, to wipe away, to wipe out".

(We would like to point out that a name couldn't be blotted out if wasn't written there to begin with.)

So starting off right here with these scriptures, the obvious conclusion is: You CAN have your name blotted out of The BOOK of LIFE.

Then you might begin to argue "These scriptures are awfully Old Testiment and may not even apply to the Book of Life" to which we would reply: In Revelation 3:4-6 this blotting out sentiment still resignates loud and clear when Jesus HIMSELF is speaking to the Church of Sardis:

Rev 3:2-6
"Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God. Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have NOT defiled their garments; and they shall walk with ME in white: FOR THEY WALK WORTHY. He that overcometh, THEY shall be clothed in white raiment; and I WILL NOT BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE. I will confess his name before my Father and before the angels".

So, how can the LORD blot out your name if you believe that once it is written, it cannot be removed?
Based on the testimony of scripture it might just be possible that the teaching of "Once saved, Always Saved" is a doctine of demons intended to keep us complacent in our walk with Christ, and the perfect pacifier for our flesh. This type of thinking tells us that we can live anyway we want and still enter into the promises of God. Just because we confess Him as Lord, does not mean we have made Him our Lord. Our fruits prove this and they will be tested..


"You must bring forth fruit worthy of repentance" said John the Baptist in Matt 3:8 and Luke 3:8 to men that were relying on the promise given by God unto Abraham. The promise that his seed would forever be blessed. John said that is wasn't enough for them to just be a natural seed, and so claim the promise of their inheritance, they were required to take root and bring forth fruits that were worthy of repentance.

Luke 3:8-9 "Then said he to the multitude that came forth to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to [our] father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. {worthy of: or, meet for} 9 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: every tree therefore which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire".

Bring forth fruit worthy of repentance? Let's ponder what that might mean based on scripture?

Matt 7:15-20 "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them".

Matt 7:21-23 "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. On that day many will say to Me, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophecy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?" And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness".

Luke 6:46 "Why call ye Me, Lord, Lord and do not the things which I say"?
(This shows Jesus speaking to a person that calls Him Lord, but doesn't agree enough with Him to actually do what He says.)

How could the people in Matt 7:21 and Luke 6:46 after walking in the gifts of God fail to enter into the Kingdom? Jesus said that although they showed outward displays of power they had not become aquainted with the true power of walking in relationship with HIM. How could they have been deceived enough by their outward demonstration of power to actually try and reason with Jesus for their entry into the Kingdom? It is possible they believed "once saved, always saved" and continued to live a life that didn't reflect Christ at all, and kept right on believing that God had qualified them due to their spiritual abilities. God's gifting and His calling are without repentance, that means that you can operate in them whether you choose to serve God with them or not. Saul was still able to prophesy after God had utterly rejected him, so don't be deceived by those that appear exeptionally anointed in the gifts. It in NO WAY is a gauge to the relationship that they walk in with God. The bible says that the fruits of wickedness are obvious and we were NOT to overlook them.

1 John 2:6 "He who says he abides in HIM ought to himself walk just as HE walked".
(This is self explainitory.)

1 John 2:3 " Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. He who says he knows Him and DOES NOT keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him".

Luke 13:23-37 "Then said one unto Him, "Lord, are there few that will be saved"? And He said unto them, "Strive to enter in at the straight gate: for many , I say unto you, will seek to enter in and shall not be able to. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, "Lord, Lord, open unto us"; and He shall answer and say unto you, "I know you NOT, or why you came"? Then shall you begin to say "we have eaten and drank in your presence, and you have taught in our streets. But He shall say, "I tell you, I know you NOT; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity".

Matt 5:20 "For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed [the righteousness] of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven".

James 5:19 9 "Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; 20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins".

This scripture clearly shows that James is referring to a brother in the truth and not an unbeliever, and gives all followers of the truth the mandate to inform the one who converts the erroneous brother back to the truth "that he has saved a soul from DEATH, and shall hide a multitude of sins".

2 Tim 2:19-21 "Nevertheless the foundation of God stands sure, having this seal, The Lord knows those who are HIS. Everyone that nameth the name of Christ MUST DEPART FROM INIQUITY. But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, [and] prepared unto every good work.

Rom 11:19-2 "You will say then "branches were broken off that I might be grafted in".Well, because of unbelief they were broken off, and you so stand by faith. DO NOT be haughty, but FEAR , for if God did not spare the natural branches, He might NOT SPARE YOU EITHER. Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in [his] goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.".

But wait a minute? Fear? Cut off? Can one fall from grace?

Heb 12:14-17 "Follow after peace with all men, and holiness, without it NO MAN shall see the Lord: Look diligently, lest any man FALL FROM THE GRACE OF GOD; lest any root of bitterness spring up and trouble you, and by it many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know that afterwards, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Heb 10:26 "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins".

Heb 6:4-6 "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come; if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and cause His work to be shamed".

Fall away? What does that mean?

2 Thess 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.

Falling away from what? The Grace of God, like it says above in Heb 12:15

Matt 24:13 Mark 13:13 "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved".

What is all this enduring the bible speaks of 2 Tim 2:3-4 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of [this] life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

Mark 4:17-19 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are caused to fall into sin. And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Why does Paul say in Phil 2:12 "We need to work out our own salvation in fear and trembling"?

Paul says in Heb 5:13 "A new convert is not familar with the teachings of righteousness". However, in Eph 4:15 he says as followers of the truth in Christ; we are given a mandate to GROW UP in our salvation. Those who continually ignore the leading of the Holy Spirit into a grown up life of righteousness (which really has to do with walking to the best of your ability in agreement with how you believe) will soon become callus and will no longer be able to hear His leading.
Eph 4:14-15 " That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ: }

There is also this scripture in Rev 2:1-29 that is very telling on this topic of once saved, always saved:

"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot : I would thou were cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot , I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

So, how can you be spewed or blotted out if this teaching is true? Remember Jesus was speaking to the CHURCH of Laodicea. He was speaking to lukewarm believers and not to unbelievers.


Let's take a look at this scripture in Revelation 3 again.

Rev 3:4-6 "Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have NOT defiled their garments; and they shall walk with ME in white: FOR THEY WALK WORTHY. He that overcometh; THEY shall be clothed in white raiment; and I WILL NOT BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE".

Why will He NOT blot out their names? Because they walked worthy. How? They didn't defile their garments. How did they avoid defiling their garments? By living a life that lined up with what they said they believed (their testimony). What do these garments they washed represent? Our garments are the representation of our relationship with Jesus.
A perfect example of garments being the testimony of our association with Jesus, is in Matt 22:11-14 where the King invites everyone to a wedding banquet, but once the King comes to inspect the guests, He sees someone among the invited guests that is NOT wearing wedding clothes. The King askes them: WHY ARE YOU NOT WEARING WEDDING CLOTHES? The improperly clad guest is speechless because he knows he is without excuse and gets kicked out to where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. All because they were not wearing wedding clothes?? Harsh! Wonder what those clothes must have represented? I believe it is safe to assume they represent our association and relationship with Jesus. Like verse 14 of this story says "many are invited, but few are chosen".

Let's take a look at these final scriptures:

Rev 12:10-11
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Revelations 7:14
"These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes (garments), and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

Who are they that came out of the great tribulation? Those that have washed their robes (garments), and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. When did they make them white? During the GREAT TRIBULATION. How did they wash them and make them white in the blood of the Lamb? By OVERCOMING like Rev 3 says about the church of Sardis and Rev 12 says about those that will overcome the accuser of the brethren during the great tribulation. How did they overcome you may ask? Rev 12:11 "By the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony;and they loved not their lives unto the death"So, by not loving their lives unto death, they demonstrated the word of their testimony.

This is why we believe it says this in these scriptures:

Rev 13:10 "He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints".

Matt 10:22 "And ye shall be hated of all [men] for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved".

James 1:12 "Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him".

It's not enough to confess Jesus with our mouth; our walk and our lifestyle must line up with our confession when HE returns or we will be forced to put our money where our mouth is, so to speak. The final demonstration of our confession and the only way to wash a dirty robe white in the blood of the Lamb is to love not our life unto death. In otherwords be willing to give our life for what we say we believe.

We believe this walk of faith in Christ is very much a training ground. If we are not willing to lay our lives down NOW for the things we say we believe, how will we EVER be willing to lay our lives down when the greatest and final deception ever concocted by the devil is being presented before us?


1 Cor 9:27 "But I keep under my body, and bring [it] into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway".

Prov 27:19 "As water reflects the face, so one's life reflects the heart".

Please pray and read thoroughly through every scripture presented. Wisdom is found in the council of the wise. Let us ALL work out our own salvation in fear and trembling and pray and ask the Holy Spirit to help us rightly divide the word of TRUTH.

Naked and Unashamed


Naked and Unashamed



Why is it so hard for us to be vulnerable and transparent in our walk with God? Why do we insist on walking out our lives in some area of secret shame? Deep down it’s the fear of the Lord that causes us all to hide.

1 John 4:18” love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love”.

So, why do we hide behind people, and busy ourselves in activities to try and forget what we know we are afraid of?
I believe it is because we are afraid of God and His judgment and as a civilization we have been programmed into believing the holier you appear to people, the more respect and authority that is entrusted to you. The more respect and authority you have; the further convinced we become that we’re in good standing with God. It’s in our nature to feel inadequate outside of God’s grace, and it is also in our human nature to seek out stronger people than ourselves when we feel insecure or afraid. We unintentionally admire those that walk in what we perceive as a purer relationship with God than we ourselves walk. We want someone whose judgment we can put our trust in, when we feel insecure about our own.

2 Cor 3:1 “Are we beginning to praise ourselves again? Are we like others, who need to bring you letters of recommendation, or who ask you to write such letters on their behalf? Surely not.”

The problem with this is; we tend to measure a persons’ holiness or piety based on their outward displays of Christianity. This can be dangerous, because we tend to overlook the obvious instructions laid out in scriptures for each one of us as individuals and turn over the spiritual reins of our lives to men and woman that we, convince ourselves are much more qualified to hear from God on our behalf. What happens as a result of this delusion is; most men and women that are man ordained pastors are not spiritually mature as shepherds and will not attempt to assist you in your struggles, and we then become blinded by their false humility and begin to believe "If God doesn't call me out on this, No one needs to know", which in turn only broadens the gap of sin that separates us from the will of God. So we continue to walk the walk and talk the talk and cover over every inward struggle that we walk in, to chase after higher positions of spiritual authority that we have convinced ourselves are the fruit proof that we are doing GOOD with God. This secret shame covering that I am speaking of is the very thing that keeps us all from really connecting as brothers and sister in the family of God. We forfeit the supernatural power that comes from confessing our sins one to another, because it has been subjugated by a man made institution that we as Christians refer to as Church. This was never God's plan for us. If you look at the very first book in the bible “Genesis”, you will see a story unfold about Adam and Eve and how it wasn't until they were made conscious of their sin that they realized that they were naked. Up till this point, being naked was a good thing. In fact it was how we were designed.
Gen 2:25 "Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame".

It was only the understanding of the vulnerability of being exposed in contrast to the condition of being covered that caused them to be ashamed of their nakedness. In simpler terms: Once they realized they were no longer in good standing with the Lord, they saw themselves as naked and became ashamed and sought to find items of this earth (fig leaves) to cover their shame.
(We all seek after things of this world to cover over our shame)

Gen 3:3-10 "At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves. Then the man and his wife heard the voice of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden.
The Lord God called to the man saying; Where are you? he replied; I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid myself. Gen 3:11 "Who told you that you were naked?" the LORD God asked. "Have you eaten from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat?"

Notice this is a two part question the Lord asks Adam: He first asks "WHO told you, you were naked? Implying that SOMEONE told them of their nudity. The Lord was not ignorant of man's recent encounter with the serpent; HE knew exactly how things transpired. Just like when He asked Adam "Where are you", do you honestly believe that the Lord didn't know? It was a heart question that Adam heard the Lord ask in the garden that day, a question that we all hear when we are hiding from God. "Where are you?" is not a question concerning our geographical location, it’s a question that cuts straight to our heart and speaks to our sin and asks "whose voice are you listening to now?" Where are you? Means: "if you are no longer walking in accordance to MY will, whose will are you walking in accordance to? For you have moved outside of MY will". His question about WHO told you, you were naked? Makes it evident that a person’s nakedness can only be perceived if SOMEONE tells them they are naked. The Lord could have said "How do you know that you are naked?" but He didn't. He said "Who told you? You see, I believe that it is by our human desire to seek after forbidden fruit (knowledge and experiences prohibited by God) that cause us to forget the will of the Lord and follow the voice of both our enticer and our accuser. We follow that voice when we allow ourselves to believe that God's commands for us to avoid and shun certain things is unfair and somehow unjust; so we take it upon ourselves to test God's word by doing the very things that separate us from Him and ultimately move us farther outside of His will for our lives. The devil will entice us with the imaginations of the possibilities of sin. Remember, sin starts in the mind. He convinces us that we MUST have what we have been denied by God. And deceives us into thinking, it's almost our right as a child of God, to be able to partake of ALL the fruit of His creation. The moment we reach out our hand to take of the tree, we are no longer following the will of God. Once we have eaten the fruit, the very first taste of knowledge is guilt. You feel guilt because you understand GOOD; and you feel guilt because you understand EVIL. Almost naturally our first instinct is to try and share that guilt because the weight of its consequences is comprehended by our new found knowledge and we try to entice someone else to fall in order to share the weight of our foolish decision. This was the very first thing Eve did after eating the fruit, the scriptures say that she gave the fruit to her husband and he ate it also. It was then that their eyes were opened to see their nakedness. Their nakedness was perceived because they stepped out of the will of God and were no longer covered by God’s grace as ones ignorant of sin. Now, not only did they know what sin was; they understood what it meant to turn from what is good and choose evil instead. This is why they hid themselves amongst the many trees in the garden. This is very similar as to why some go to large churches; often times, it’s to blend in among the masses. The Garden of Eden in Hebrew means the Garden of Pleasure. The Garden represents the earth and we are its trees. Numerous times in scriptures the Lord compares us to trees i.e. :( you can tell a tree by its fruit) When we know we have sinned we hide ourselves amongst the trees of the world in hopes that God won’t see us or our sins in midst of everyone else’s. But we as children of God will always hear the voice of the Lord walking in the garden of this world calling out to us “Where are you? whenever we stretched forth our hand for that forbidden fruit. Satan is called the accuser of the brethren. He accuses the saints before the throne of God night and day. His goal is to get you to step outside of the will of God, so He can turn around and use it to condemn you before the Father. Hence, the “who” in the Lord’s question of “Who told you, you were naked?” Is most definitely Satan. It is Satan that shows us our nakedness outside of God’s will and causes us to want to hide from God and from others, and many times from ourselves. Its Satan’s job to remind of us of our fallen state every day, he wants us to forget that Jesus shed his blood as an atonement for our sins, past ,present and future. Jesus is our covering; He covers our sin so we can be naked and unashamed. We see this demonstrated through the act of the Lord fashioning garments of skins to cover Adam and Eve’s nakedness in Gen 3:21.

The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them”.
Blood was somehow shed to cover their nakedness or rather their consciousness of sin. An animal of some sort was sacrificed to make coverings for their bodies. The scripture does not elaborate on what type of skins but we know that the Lord himself fashioned the garments out of skins as coverings for them both. Jesus and the blood he shed for us, is all the covering we will ever need. If we eat the bread of His body, and we partake of the cup of His blood which represents us sharing in the cup of His suffering, then we prove that we agree with His words, even when we can’t seem to get our bodies to line up.

Romans 7:21-24 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?”

Romans 8:8-9 Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ”.

The bible says in John 1:8: “If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us”.

Romans 3:10As the Scriptures say, "No one is righteous--not even one”.

Jesus came to cover our nakedness once and for all. We all have areas that cause us shame in our lives. The object is not to look upon another’s shame; we are to look away so to speak. Let me give you an example in scripture. A little further ahead in Genesis there is a story about Noah getting drunk and passing out in his tent naked and his son Ham walking in and looking upon in his father in his shameful state. Look at how his brothers Japheth and Shem handle the news of their father’s nakedness:

Gen 9:20-27And Noah began to be a farmer, and he planted a vineyard. Then he drank of the wine and was drunk, and became uncovered in his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment, laid it on both their shoulders, and went backward and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were turned away, and they did not see their father's nakedness. So Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done to him. Then he said: "Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants he shall be to his brethren." And he said: "Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem, and May Canaan be his servant. May God enlarge Japheth, and may he dwell in the tents of Shem; and may Canaan be his servant."

The reason the Lord tells us not to judge another man’s standing with the Father on whether “he will ascend or descend”, is due to the fact that; in our flesh, our judgment is skewed. We can only judge by the outward severity of sin because we cannot see the condition of a man’s heart, only the Spirit searches and knows the condition of a man’s heart. Prov 16:2 “All a man's ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD”. Let me give you an example in a manor I believe Jesus would:

Who do you believe God would consider the worse transgressor? The non believer or baby Christian that is not acquainted with the teachings of righteousness Heb 5:13 committing the sin of murder, or a pious seasoned Christian person that commits slander against his brother by bearing false witness? Do you see what I am driving at? We have to always have the statement “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone” always playing in our minds when we happen upon someone in a shameful condition and not go announce it to the world. Because, WE too have our own shameful condition and only God Himself knows whether before Him we stand or fall. In the case of Noah’s sons, the hearts of each man was revealed. Ham after happening upon his father’s weakened and shameful condition went immediately and told his two brothers of the news. Shem and Japheth handled the news like true Christians and demonstrated the true love of God by covering Noah’s nakedness without looking upon his shame. When we approach one another ‘s weaknesses with this heart attitude, we will be just like the man in the parable Jesus told about the Good Samaritan that demonstrated what a neighbor was and what being a neighbor meant.

Luke 10:25-37
Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he said, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?” He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.” But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, And who is my neighbor?” Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan while traveling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, ‘Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.’ Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

The Devil comes to Steal, Kill and Destroy. He is roaming to and fro looking to find someone along the pathway to overpower and rob of their inheritance. It is our job as Christians to look upon our brothers and sister in the light of Christ’s mercy and God will extend the exact same mercy and grace upon us. This is how one is able to walk naked and unashamed. When we are lead by love, we are lead by the Spirit of God. When we are lead by the Spirit of God we are no longer under the condemnation of our nakedness through sin and death. We find ourselves covered completely in the Blood of Jesus and ultimately defying the power of sin and death.

James 1:25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

The word in Greek that is translated in this verse as looks intently is parakupto and it actually means: to stoop down to a lower level to obtain a better view.

In Greek this scripture more accurately translates as:

“But whoever stoops down and lowers themselves to perceive the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it; they will show that they have not forgotten what they have heard, by doing it, these will be blessed in whatever they do”.

If we truly remember to do unto other as we would want them to do unto us, and Judge the way we want to be judged by God; then we can truly walk about in the garden of this world and be completely naked (honest and transparent) and unashamed because we know that Christ is our spiritual covering, fashion by God’s own hands to cover our nakedness just like in the Garden of Eden.

I pray this article causes us all to stoop down and lower ourselves to get a better view of God’s perfect law of freedom and learn to walk naked and unashamed just as we were originally designed.
