08-20-23 God is Thought. The brightness of our revelations depends upon the correctness of our doctrines, our building blocks, our Godly thoughts laid one upon another, ascending into the mind of Christ. These study notes are archived at


tribulation = Gk: [GREAT] pressure [to conform: Rom 12:2]:

affliction, anguish, burden, persecution, trouble.



(Zech 14:1,2) Behold, the day of the LORD cometh [“For our God is a consuming fire (Gk: to consume utterly) Heb 12:29], and thy spoil [Heb: booty: prey] [goods, possessions, but ultimately thy thoughts, i.e., your real eternal booty for both God and Satan is the thoughts of your mind which] shall be divided in the midst of thee [i.e., your spirit (spiritual thoughts) and your soul (natural thoughts) shall be divided (separated) within you]. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken [Gk: caught (in a net, trap); captured], and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity [for perhaps a relevant parallel, half of the United States is now being held captive under evil messengers of ungodly thoughts (under Satan’s thoughts)], and the residue [Heb: remainder, remnant] of the people [(good news for us)] shall not be cut off [Heb: consumed] from the city. 

1.    (Zech 13:7,8) Awake, O sword [“of the Spirit, which is the word of God” Eph 6:17], against my shepherd [against false teachers in the pulpit], and against the man that is my fellow [against nominal professing Christians vs. true confessing Christians], saith the LORD of hosts: smite [Heb: strike: wound or kill] the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand [of correction (cleansing)] upon the little ones [babes in Christ]And it shall come to pass, that in all the land [Heb: in (all) the world] [having a present population of over 8 billion people (souls), or 8,000 million people (souls)], saith the LORD, two parts [two thirds or 5,332 million people (souls)] therein shall be cut off [Heb: to cut (off, down or asunder); by implic. destroyed or consumed] and die [Heb: to breathe out, expire: be dead, give up the ghost]; but the third [part, 2,666 million people (souls) in the world] shall be left therein [i.e., the “rapture” is not a physical ascension, but the “rapture” is a spiritual ascension, i.e., we are being raptured now, step by step, revelation upon revelation: 

a.     (Gen 28:12) And he [Jacob, a type and shadow of we who have become Israel] dreamed, and behold a ladder [Heb: a stair-case] [of steps, “ladder” is mentioned only once in the Bible)] set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels [Heb: messengers (messages)] of God ascending and descending on it

b.    (John 1:51) And he [Jesus] saith unto him [unto Nathanael, a type and shadow of us], Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open [Gk: opened up], and the angels [Gk: messengers (messages)] of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man [i.e., upon Jesus Christ, and upon we who are in Him; i.e., Jesus Christ is the only ladder to Heaven]

2.    (Zech 13:9) And I will bring the third part [that’s us] through the fire, and will refine them [Heb: to fuse (metal): melt, purify, purge away] [the dross: syn: rubbish, trash, garbage, scum, waste] as silver [a valuable precious metal representing salvation and Jesus Christ in the Bible] is refined, and will try them [Heb: to test (especially metals)] as gold [Heb: to shimmer; gold] [a valuable most precious metal representing God in the Bible] is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God
