Lord’s Prayer–“Which Art in Heaven”–He Is from Above, Not Beneath

Our Father is the God of heaven. That is a profound thought that is easily passed over. In other words, the true God is not born of the imagination of earthly man.  This is what we are to take away from the words in the Lord’s prayer, “Which art in heaven.”  There are “gods many, but for us there is only one God.”  These “gods many” are conjured up by natural unregenerated man–“cunningly devised fables,” false conceptions of Christ.

And the masses are deceived.  “Satan deceives the whole world.”  How can he do that?  “For Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness” (II Cor. 11:14-15). But every “Christian minister” will tell you that they are a teacher of the truth. Just ask them. But they all cannot be right because they disagree so wildly in their doctrines. So we must ask ourselves: Who then are Satan’s ministers who speak about Christ and yet deceive the whole world with their teachings? Since there is no idle word in God, somebody is fulfilling this word right now!

Wait a minute.  Paul has just said that Satan will come as a messenger of truth and light by having priests, pastors, and preachers bringing forth sermons about Christ and His righteousness!  Satan’s ministers will be preaching about Christ in the last days.  But it will not be the true “gospel of the kingdom of heaven.”  It will be “another gospel” other than the one that the apostle Paul preached.  It will not be from heaven, but it will be from beneath.

It will be a gospel concocted by the vain imaginations of natural thinking men.  It will be based on “what God can do for you,” and not “what God can do through your vessel.”  They will claim to be His servants, but at the end, He will say, “Depart from me you workers of iniquity.  I never knew you.”  You wanted prosperity instead of Me. You wanted your spin on the end time and not My timetable.  You wanted a rapturously easy way out of the hard times ahead and not “to endure hardness as a good soldier of Christ.”

This false gospel from beneath will emanate from an “earthly, sensual, and devilish” wisdom and not from heaven above.  This false gospel will spout “in Jesus’ name” but their hearts will be far from the God of Heaven and far from His heart.

This false gospel comes in many colors and flavors.  Most people shop around until they find a church with their kind of “Jesus” in it.  Most depend on the pastor to do their studying for them.  Few dig deep and “prove all things” with the Spirit’s help. This false gospel of Jesus is not from our Father, which is in heaven.  It is not from above, but from beneath. {Note: Church is a way station only on our pilgrimage to the Holy City.  We must eventually leave the way station, grow out of it, etc.}

Our Father and His plan of reproducing Himself in His sons and daughters is from heaven, not from sinful man’s imagination of what they thought God meant.  No, our Father emanates from the finer spiritual dimension we call heaven.  He is far above the selfish, conniving imaginations of un-spiritual man trying to be religious, leaning to his own understanding.

His thoughts are not our thoughts.  “It is a heavenly vision, a heavenly faith, a heavenly destiny, a heavenly plan, a heavenly purpose, a heavenly blueprint, a heavenly way, a heavenly thought of a heavenly Father, who is above all this on earth and is in us whom He has called”   (quoted from The Unveiling of the Sons of God  https://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/ebook-the-unveiling-of-the-sons-of-god/ ).

We must keep this in mind in our communication to Him because He is “Our Father, which art in heaven.”  He’s from above and not from beneath.     Kenneth Wayne Hancock

Parable of the Tares in the Field–Who Are These “Children of the Wicked One”? Part II (Conversations With the Seer)

“Wait a minute. God is saying in this parable that both the good and the evil have to grow together in this world. You mean that God is allowing the evil to exist in this earth?”

“Exactly. You must realize that God is the One who created evil in the first place. He says through Isaiah point blank, ‘I create evil.’

“But why would He do that?”

“Go back to the parable. ‘Let both grow together until the time of the harvest.’ The children of God grow along side the children of the evil one. In fact, He said that if you were to get rid of the evil prematurely, then the growth of the children of God would be halted. They would be ‘rooted up.’ It’s a paradox, it seems, but we need the evil out there in the world in order to facilitate our own maturing process.”

“Surely not,” I said. I could not believe what I was hearing. We need the evil in order to grow in God?

“Oh, but it is true. Remember what He said: ‘My ways are not your ways; my thoughts are not your thoughts.’”

“If I were God, I would just get rid of the evil ones, along with the suffering and pain and misery.”

“But we are not God, and this profound mystery of evil persists, and we ponder it, and we deal with the evil in our own personal lives, and this is what helps us mature and grow in God. His Spirit within us grows as we overcome the things that the devil and his evil intentions throw our way. This is why there is evil out here in the world. And on a worldwide scale, this is why we have ‘children of the wicked one’ growing more powerful each day.”

“So Christ is talking about literal people walking around on the earth whose father is the devil?” I asked. The words sounded unreal and other-worldly and frankly, a bit hokey.

“Let me ask you a question. Do you believe that there are children of God literally walking around the earth right now?”

“Yes, I do.”

“Then is it a stretch to believe that there are children of the wicked one doing the same thing?”

“No, I guess not? Well, who are the devil’s children?” I asked.

“They are not grotesque monsters that you find in the movies. They are the leaders of the people. In Christ’s day they were the Pharisees and the Sadducees, the members of the Sanhedrin council, the spiritual leaders of the people.  They were rich and high up on the social ladder in Judea.  Remember what the apostle Paul said that Satan would transform himself into angels of light.  They come in God’s name, but their hearts are far from the true God.”

“How do you know that?” I asked the Seer.

“Because Christ called them out.” The Seer turned to the gospel of John and began to read. “‘You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him…He that is of God hears God’s words: you therefore hear them not, because you are not of God. Then answered the Jews, and said unto Him, Say we not well that you are a Samaritan and have a devil?’ (8: 44-48). Christ says here that the religious leaders of the Jews have a father, who is the devil. And that they are doing what their father the devil desires for them to do. The devil was a murderer from the beginning, and his children, the high priests and Pharisees and Sadducees had Christ crucified. They tried to kill Him many times before the Crucifixion, but He would slip out of their traps, for His ‘hour was not yet come.’(John 8: 20). Christ told them, ‘But now you seek to kill me,’ and ‘You do the deeds of your father’ (8: 40-41).”

“He really let them have it.”

“They were the leaders of the people. They wore the long robes of the day and claimed to know God, but they were the children of the devil and were doing his bidding every step of the way. We are talking about the high priest and his followers, who were in collusion with the Romans, the central political power in control at that time. Isaiah said, ‘For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed’ (9: 16). And so it is today. Paul said, ‘For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms’ (Eph 6: 12). The devil is that spiritual force of evil in this world, and he has taken up residence in the ‘rulers of the darkness of this world’ system. It is our task to search it all out and find out who is our real enemy in this world, who really has the power in this world system. Then the mystery of iniquity will be solved. Then we will know who the tares in the field really are.”

A Kingdom Divided Against Itself–Satan’s World Crumbling

Satan has a kingdom, and it is coming down, even as we write this.  More banks are failing while more governments are borrowing trillions from central banker thieves, thus putting the people more in bondage.

Satan has a globally connected kingdom–actually many national governments who are enslaving their people through corrupt economic practices.  For the very central bankers who were supposed to “prevent the people’s elected representatives” from making a mess of things, are now the very ones selling us all down the tubes.

But we sons and daughters of God must be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”  We must know the “wiles of the devil” as we are admonished by the holy apostles of Christ.

So let us realize and believe what the Holy One Himself said about this present world system.  The “wicked one” and destroyer of men is plotting now through certain rich men how to consolidate his power over all nations (see James 5: 1-6).

Satan has longed for the day when his “one world government” is realized.  It has been many centuries in the making.

Satan’s Kingdom Is the “One World Government” and the “New World Order”

Christ taught us that Satan has his own kingdom.  “If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?” (Luke 11: 18).   Earlier we see during the temptations of Christ, Satan saying, “All this power will I give you…for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.”  We see by this statement that the power of this present world system is Satanic and the power thereof is given to men from the wicked one.

Satan is the “god of this world.”  He is in control, for now, of all the power of the governments of men.

But Satan’s kingdom is a divided kingdom.  For instance, the West is at war with the Middle East; Christendom is at war with Islamic fundamentalism; capitalism is at war with communism/socialism; Hindu India vs. Muslim Pakistan; tribe against tribe; culture against culture, ad infinitum.

The United States is going into the One World Government.  Both Republican and Democratic Parties are taking us there through very similar policies.  Ever notice how neither decries the Federal Reserve System’s stranglehold on our economy.  Remember George Bush I’s  speech gloating about the “New World Order”?  What sheer audacity.  And what do the sheeple do?  Nothing.  Not a whimper, not a word.

The Difference in Our Two Parties

Here’s the difference in the two parties.  The conservatives want the USA to be the leading voice in the One World Government.  The Liberals want to weaken her, redistribute her wealth, and strip her of her power and make the USA just another third rate power, like a middle of the road European state.

And it is all heading that way–the way that biblical prophecy has proclaimed it to be.  The world will fall under the spell of a charismatic ruler, the Anti-Christ.  For seven years he will hold sway.  But the phony peace, held together by grey duct tape of lies, will fracture because of all the evil selfish egos, and Satan’s kingdom will disintegrate about the time of Christ’s return to set up His kingdom.

He’ll set it all aright here on earth, establishing a 1,000 year reign of peace.  And He will be using His sons and daughters as His administrators and ambassadors sent to the far-flung corners of the globe, spreading His love, hope, and righteousness.     Kenneth Wayne Hancock

The Old Serpent Deceiveth the Whole World

    The whole world is deceived, according to the Bible.   “Satan deceives the whole world” (Rev. 12:9).  Satan not only deceives individuals, but has deceived whole nations (Rev. 20:3).  Consequently, leaning on this world system in any way for guidance, truth, or sustenance is futile and dangerous. 

    So, what are we to do?  We must examine ourselves in the light of the written word to see if we are really in the true faith of God.  We must “purge out the old leaven,” getting rid of old worldly concepts and ideas that Satan has used to deceive the people and nations of the world.

    Since the world and its nations are deceived, we can look at what they support and see what is suspect and needs to be gotten rid of.  For example, look at our holidays.  The world system supports Halloween among others, and all are blatantly pagan (  www.1911encyclopedia.org/Hallowe’en ).   

    You can have Hallowe’en in schools and yet your children cannot pray there.  You cannot teach creationism or intelligent design and yet, children are encouraged to celebrate Valentine’s Day, which was a Roman fertility and purification festival held on the very same day, February 14 ( “february.” Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary. MICRA, Inc. 02 Jul. 2008. <Dictionary.com http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/february> ). 

    Our government is deceived and corrupt.  It has left its first love-its Creator.  The original settlers, the Pilgrims, came here to “establish the kingdom of God nation in the earth.”  Now our government has become the servant of a cartel of rich international bankers. 

    Our Congress in 1913 created by law the Federal Reserve System.  It is not “federal” nor a reserve.  Its very name is a lie.  Nor is it “of the people, by the people, or for the people.”  “The Fed” is a private corporation with around 300 shareholders from the richest families of America.  It creates money out of nothing but wood fibers and ink.  Then it lends these created dollars. 

    Our government borrows trillions of these dollars and then it takes our hard-earned money as taxes just to pay the interest on that debt!  And who gets those billions?  The shareholders of the private corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank. 

    Because “the borrower is servant to the lender,” the U.S. government, as well as all governments, is a servant to the rich international bankers, who are running things on the world stage.  The presidents, premiers, prime ministers, congresses, and parliaments of this world are the lap dogs of these internationalists.

    And we the sheeple of this deceived world, drunk on our own self-importance, are being led down the shopping aisles, tempted to get more, buy more, and covet more material things–things that satiate our fleshly senses so that we cannot perceive what is killing us.

    The old serpent, the Devil, has definitely deceived the whole world.  The people are deceived because they don’t know what is going on.  And the nations are deceived because the leaders actually think they are going to get by with going to bed with the rich bankers.

    But a few will see through the lies and sin of this world system, and they will “come out” from it, and they will be separate.  They will be the vanguard of Yahweh’s Kingdom that’s coming soon.       Kenneth Wayne Hancock

“Thy Kingdom Come”–The Gospel of the Kingdom of God

The true gospel is the good news of our Father’s government literally coming to fill the whole earth with His righteous ways.  

Christ in this section of the “Lord’s Prayer” teaches us the importance of the Father’s kingdom.  A kingdom is a literal form of government headed by a monarch.  He is the King.  Thy kingdom come…in earth as it is in heaven.  His kingdom already rules in heaven; shortly it will rule completely on earth. 

This is the good news proclaimed in the four gospels in the so-called “New Testament” of the Bible.  Many scriptures back this up.  “Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel” (Mark 1:14-15).  Believe what gospel?  The “gospel of the kingdom of God.”  He is saying, God’s government is here.  Because it is at hand, you need to repent from your old selfish life, and believe this good news of God ruling on earth. 

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matt. 24:14),  It is this gospel, this true gospel of the kingdom of God that must be proclaimed throughout the whole world before the end of the age will come.  The gospel that is going out now is another gospel of Christ–one of salvation, a salvation that usually does not include the death on the cross of the person’s old self (See Romans 6:6…( http://www.yahwehisthesavior.com/yahch27.htm ).  Salvation is precious but it is just the first step.

In the next verse, Christ quotes the prophet Daniel concerning the end times.  In Ch. 2 Daniel saw the Father’s kingdom coming down out of heaven smashing the world system to pieces. 

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms.”  These are four literal, political, historical world governmental systems–Babylonia, Persia, Greece, and Rome}.  At this present time we are seeing the last revival of the old Roman Empire.  Think “Euro, the EU”.  We are coming to the end of “the days of these kings.”  “Thy kingdom come.”

To God’s faithful, this collapse of the present world system is “good news.”  To others it will be “bad news.”  Good or bad, the Father’s Kingdom is coming in a fullness.

We, then, should pray with this grand and glorious vision that Christ had, when He taught His disciples to pray.  A vision of an earth free from corruption and cruelty–free from addiction and selfishness–free from hunger and desperation–free from greedy leaders who cast the poor in chains of lies and deceit–free from husbands and wives betraying those who love them the most–free from broken-hearted children thrown out like trash by selfish parents–free from the evil that rapes and pillages every soul on earth–

This is the gospel of the Kingdom of God.  This is the good news that will fill the earth when Christ comes back and sits down on the throne of our invisible Father.  And His sons and daughters will sit alongside Him in His kingdom right here on earth.  And He will dispatch us His princes and princesses out into the ravished earth to rebuild and restore what the evil ones wasted.

“Thy kingdom come” evokes much about the glorious vision God has for His earth.  We need to pray toward this end.  He told us to not ask for things for ourselves, but rather, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you.”  Kenneth Wayne Hancock

“Our Father”–The Father of the Sons and Daughters of God

God is not everyone’s Father.  He is the Creator of all, but not Father of all.  I’m just saying; that’s what the English says.

Christ told the Pharisees, who were very religious, “You seek to kill me, a man that has told you the truth…You are of your father the devil…a murderer from the beginning…a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:40:44).

We see, then, two spiritual fathers at work in the earth: “Our Father”  and “your father the devil.”  And to help the sons and daughters of God, Christ left us the salutation in His Blueprint Prayer, “Our Father” to distinguish our Father from their father.  (To read more on them and their father, see “Children of the Wicked One” under “Recent Posts”).

The words, “Our Father,” also signifies an engendering by God, begetting several spiritual offspring.

The LORD (Yahweh in the Hebrew), told the prophet Jeremiah, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee” (Jer. 1:4-5).  God knew Jeremiah before his earthly conception and gestation!  And God chose him and ordained him a prophet before he “came forth out of the womb.”  Jeremiah was “born from above”–begotten by God long before coming to earth.  Jeremiah was in the very heart of God–and so were we, His sons and daughters, before the time of our earthly, fleshly sojourn.

Our Father “has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world” (Eph. 1:4).  He knew us before and has pre-destinated us “to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Rom. 8:29).   He has given us a destiny to be like Christ before the world was ever founded.  This is nothing less that God’s purpose–reproducing Himself.

And so the cycle goes: seedtime and harvest.  God the husbandman has great patience waiting for His children to grow up until they are “conformed to the image of His Son.”  He will endure the “vessels fitted unto destruction” in order to create His “royal priesthood,” His ruling offspring.  This is our destiny, ordered for us by “our Father.”

For make no mistake.  Christ told it like it is.  He warned that in the last days, many will be deceived by false prophets and false teachers who lead the sheep through the wide and broad gate to destruction.  They are wolves in “sheep’s clothing.”  They show themselves as God’s spokesmen, but are really modern day Pharisees, whose father is not “our Father.”

And to the many who are deceived by them Christ warns: “Many will say to me, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity” (Matthew 7:13-23).  They mouthed a bunch of half-truths but didn’t do the will of “our Father which is in heaven” (v. 21).

There is a lot in the phrase “Our Father, which art in heaven.”  We must begin to pray with the understanding of His words.  It is a great privilege to call Him “our Father.”  Not everyone truthfully can.   Kenneth Wayne Hancock
