Levi vs Melchizedek

Date: 01/01/2021 Issue Number: 390

The competition between flesh and spirit, which we studied in the last FFI, extends also to the priesthood. There are two priesthoods, one fleshly and one spiritual, who are contending for authority in the Kingdom of God. Both set forth their claims, but only one will win its case in the end. The competition between Levi and Melchizedek to inherit the priesthood should be viewed in the broader context of all other struggles between flesh and spirit. This gives us a better perspective, knowing that each set of co…

Kingdoms of Flesh and Blood

Date: 12/01/2020 Issue Number: 389

There are two main perspectives in life: flesh and spirit. The flesh deals with biology, or genealogy. The spirit deals with law, because “the law is spiritual” (Rom. 7:14). Those who do not understand the concept and purpose of law tend to believe that the law is carnal and therefore should be put away. In the contrast between flesh and spirit, they put the law in the realm of flesh, as if law and spirit are incompatible and contradictory. Yet Paul claimed that the law was spiritual and asked in Rom.…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Canaan

Date: 11/01/2020 Issue Number: 388

The chart above shows graphically a new revelation that we have received in the past month. I covered it in my talk on October 9 at our online Tabernacles conference. Not all of you watched the livestream or the video afterward, so I thought it necessary to send it to the entire FFI mailing list. This chart shows how the world (represented by Canaan) is about to get out of Cursed Time and get on to Blessed Time in 2024. Between now and then, I believe that the Holy Spirit will be poured out worldwide, causin…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Hosea

Date: 10/01/2020 Issue Number: 387

The prophet Hosea provides us with a snapshot of Christ the Redeemer of Israel. He was told by God to marry a harlot (Hosea 1:2). It is unclear whether she was harlot before Hosea married her, or if she became a harlot later. Either way, she fit the type, because the sin of Israel did not suddenly appear after God married the nation at Mount Sinai. The harlot was named “Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim” (Hosea 1:3). She soon left Hosea and followed others that she thought would provide for her and p…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Daniel

Date: 09/01/2020 Issue Number: 386

Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel were contemporaries who lived about the time of the fall of Jerusalem in 604 B.C. Ezekiel was a prophet to the house of Israel in Assyria, Jeremiah was a prophet in Judah, while Daniel was taken to Babylon in the first wave of exiles to become the prophet of those Judahites in Babylon. Perhaps the most important “snapshot” of Daniel is his role as the prophetic type of the overcomers living in the captivity to the beast system. He is our example as to how to live in a…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Ezekiel, Part 3

Date: 08/01/2020 Issue Number: 385

Ezekiel 44 gives us a snapshot of the priesthood in the Kingdom of God. He shows us that there are actually two kinds of priests: idolatrous and righteous. The prophet starts by forbidding foreigners from ministering as priests. We read in Ezek. 44:6-9 says, 6 You shall say to the rebellious ones, to the house of Israel, “Thus says the Lord God, ‘Enough of all your abominations, O house of Israel, 7 when you brought in foreigners, uncircumcised in heart and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in My sanctuary…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Ezekiel, Part 2

Date: 07/01/2020 Issue Number: 384

Ezekiel 37 gives us a snapshot of the Kingdom in its prophecy of the resurrection of the “dry bones” of the House of Israel (37:12). Most Christians today mistakenly point to the State of Israel as the fulfillment of this prophecy. Ezek. 37:12-14 says, 12 Therefore prophesy to them [bones], “Thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I will open your graves and cause you to come up out of your graves, My people; and I will bring you into the land of Israel. 13 Then you will know that I am the Lo…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Ezekiel

Date: 06/01/2020 Issue Number: 383

There were three distinguished prophets living at the time of Jerusalem’s destruction at the hand of King Nebuchadnezzar. Jeremiah prophesied in Jerusalem and saw its destruction; Daniel prophesied in Babylon as a captive being trained to be the liaison between Babylon and Judah; and Ezekiel prophesied to the Israelites in exile who lived north of Babylon in Assyria. We have already seen a snapshot of the Kingdom from Jeremiah’s ministry in Judah. Now we will turn to Ezekiel and his ministry to the f…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Jeremiah

Date: 05/01/2020 Issue Number: 382

Jeremiah began his prophetic ministry in the 13th year of Josiah, king of Judah (Jer. 1:2) about 628 B.C. He gave the people and the kings in Jerusalem the word of the Lord until the city was destroyed in 586 B.C. Jeremiah’s ministry to Jerusalem thus ran for 43 years, which appears to run parallel to the 43 years from the start of Jesus’ ministry (30 A.D.) to the fall of Jerusalem in 70 and the final battle at Masada in 73 A.D. It was 43 years from 30-73 A.D. For this reason, Jeremiah’s prophec…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Isaiah, part 2

Date: 04/01/2020 Issue Number: 381

The last half of Isaiah (chapters 40-66) shift the focus from the destruction of the Kingdom to the restoration of the Kingdom, from warning to comfort, from the casting away to the regathering of God’s people. It is here where the prophecy in Isaiah’s name emerges clearly, for it is all about the salvation of the Kingdom and its people. The introduction is seen in Isaiah 40:1, 2, 1 Comfort, O comfort My people,” says your God. 2 “Speak kindly to Jerusalem, and call out to her, that her wa…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Isaiah, part 1

Date: 03/01/2020 Issue Number: 380

The prophet Isaiah was a type of Christ. His Hebrew name is Yeshayah, a combination of Yasha and Yah. The word yasha is the root word (verb) that means “to save.” Yeshua is the noun, “savior.” Yeshayah means “Yah saves.” Hence, Yeshua (Jesus) and Yeshayah (Isaiah) mean the same thing. Isaiah’s commission is given in Isaiah 6:8, 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me.&rd…

Snapshots of the Kingdom: Saul and Solomon

Date: 02/01/2020 Issue Number: 379

I have often talked about Saul as an important type of the church during the Pentecostal Age. Yet before he was crowned king on the day of wheat harvest, i.e., Pentecost, he was actually a type Christ, prophesying of deliverance over the devil through the power of the cross. Saul’s coronation took place in 1 Samuel 12, but he was a type of Christ in chapter 11. 1 Samuel 11:1, 2 begins that story: 1 Now Nahash the Ammonite came up and besieged Jabesh-gilead; and all the men of Jabesh said to Nahash, &…
