The Way We Walk
"Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.  Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.  Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil". -  "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", PROVERBS 4:25-27; Philippians 3:18-19.
I had a dream this morning and in it I was walking on my hands, something people normally do not do. Then I came to a messy kitchen area with a dirty, greasy floor. I did not want to walk there especially since I was walking with my hands. At that point I heard a voice saying "many walk even weeping, but they are enemies of the cross of Christ". Then I heard the title spoken: it is not that we walk, but "the way we walk".
Walking on one's hands is unnatural for men in this life. The natural man walks with his feet. But when one is a priest for God he can do supernatural and allegorical things that are beyond the human imagination. Under the crown of Heaven the priest of God becomes God's hands. He himself is God's left-hand and the right-hand works through him. Thus Heaven walks on its hands in the earth! The earth has been described as God's footstool and God has said of His children, "I will dwell in them and walk in them", Isaiah 66:1; II Corinthians 6:16. This is especially true for God's human priest. Thus while Heaven walks on its hands, God walks simultaneously in His feet in the same earthly priest! All men walk on earth's surface, a thing which devils cannot do, Isaiah 8:20-21, 14:12,21, 29:4-5; Matthew 5:5. It is not so significant that men walk, but it is important how men walk.
The "living dead"
Sin and demonic works have created a shocking phenomenon for new arrivers in Heaven. They discover that devils have made "zombies" out of most human beings. Because the holy and righteous ways of life from the Father are not functioning in men at all times, men have been described as "dead to God", Matthew 8:22; Ephesians 2:1-3. Indeed "the wages of sin is death", Romans 6:23. Because of sin active in the behavior of most human beings, they have become the "living dead". Here is some "walking advice" from Paul: " This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.  For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.  But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.  Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God", Galatians 5:16-21. The "living dead" practice the slave works of sin at the bidding of demonic "Egyptian" slavemasters, Matthew 12:43-45; John 8:36-38. No wise person should want to walk as a "zombie" to a bunch of pint-sized, midget, fake-spirit "tools". If we "follow me" (Jesus), then we can walk in the spirit as "lively" men. " For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;  And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled", II Corinthians 10:4-6.
"Men Are Beasts"
Men have been described as "beasts" because the demonic "Beast" has transformed too much of human nature into the behavioral response of devils in an attempt to damn all humanity with them, Psalm 49:20; Acts 10:9-16,28. As a result too many men walk as beasts. Savage, wild animals prey upon one another and cannot live in peace. They roar, growl and stalk the weak around them and cause fear and tension. Because of control by the real "Beast", men do these same things to their neighbors in our communities and among our fleshy nations. The law of the jungle persists, that is, might makes right, and only the strong avoid poverty and subjugation. I will use one obvious example to illustrate my point: Yugoslavia and the madness happening there! Beasts lack true understanding and that is why Jesus informed us that men are spiritually blind in this world. Walking as a blind man can result in a fall or a tumble in a ditch. And devils are expert at creating ditches for men and stumblingblocks to make us fall.
Walking with one's nose to the ground and leading one's body is a walking style exhibited by dogs and other preying animals. To accomplish this activity most "nose-following" animals walk on all fours, the equivalent of human hands and feet. The nose imparts knowledge to the brain of the beast and if a scent smells good the beast will try and locate the source of the smell. In human beings these are men who are led by knowledge of what seems to be right. The major problem with this is that in this world one cannot "judge according to appearance" or "judge after the sight of the eyes and the hearing of the ears" because there is an invisible WAR going on and relying on such sources for information and judgment is very deceitful, Isaiah 11:1-4; John 7:24. So men who follow their nose (knowledge and human intellect) will be deceived by the invisible nature of this WAR. They do err in judgment as "beasts" (walking on all four) with little understanding, Psalm 49:20.
In our HEADLINE it states that there are "weeping ministers" who shed tears in order to influence the thinking of their audience and to convince them of their great piety. We know of two such instances among now fallen televangelists, Jimmy Swaggert and the Bakkers "whose glory is in their shame" and "they are enemies of the cross of Christ". Maybe you do not want to think of them as enemies of the cross. OK! Then the devils "mastering them" and leading them are enemies of the cross. How many weak Christians lost faith in God and Christ because of their deceitful ways? How many agnostics and atheists felt vindicated because the actions of rogue "weepers" in the ministry gave religion a black eye? You simply "cannot serve God and mammon", nor can we afford more Judas priests in the ministry enriching themselves like Balaam by use of the name of Christ! . Beware of the "boo-hoo-ing" minister. And if you love God, serve Him and stay out of the bed of Jezebel, Revelation 2:12-16,18-23. You cannot serve God and become drunk on the wine of sex with women, Revelation 17:1-6. Those who are drunk on sex with women spend much time on all fours. They do very little walking at such times. Men walk upright on two legs and the true "man of God" walks upright in his conduct, Ecclesiastes 7:29. So it is not that preachers preach, but what and how they preach. NOW HEAR THIS: " While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.  For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.  For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.  But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire", II Peter 2:19-22."
Walk Like a Man
A man is supposed to be the most intelligent among God's creatures below. Man does not walk on all fours, nor does he have a tail. Because we are supposed to be led by the angels in this WAR, we should be wise. Adam found himself to be quite different from all the creatures when God brought them before him that He might name them. Every one of them had a mate except Adam. You can guess how this made him feel from God's words just before He created Eve. But Adam and Eve did not quite get to the tree of life. Instead devils gained an entry into our ears and our minds by way of "knowledge of good and evil". Knowledge of good is "OK", but it is the "and evil" part that has brought us captivity, death, and misery throughout our generations. It was here that the nature of beasts was first foisted upon man by the "Beast" himself called the devil and Satan. Noah and his family were the only "men" in the ark. They were outnumbered by the animals. As we said before, it is understanding that really sets man apart from animals, Psalm 49:20. But if a man acts like an animal (lacks wisdom and understanding) Solomon wrote that "they are beasts", Ecclesiastes 3:18. Indeed Peter saw men in general in a vision displayed as beasts on a sheet, and in his vision it was not stated that there was one man among them! What a shame! Psalm 14:2-3; Acts 10:9-16,28. Even Peter lacked understanding! God had to convince him that those so-called "gentiles" are His children and his spirit brethren! Paul walked like a "man of God" when he learned this. He grabbed the torch and ran with it! Acts 17:24-28. Paul was one man who walked "upright"! Because the four major races of humanity are as "beasts" in Peter's vision, the Four Major Archangels over them are parabolized as a calf (Phanuel), an eagle (Michael), a lion (Raphael), and the Man Gabriel. These mighty Archangels do not lack understanding, but because the fleshy men they preside over lack it, these angels are depicted according to the description of their subjects. There are very few "men of God". But Gabriel can make a "beast" become a man, (My son)! Daniel 9:21-22; Revelation 4:6-7. He can also make one stand "upright" like a man, Daniel 10:10-11.
The Walk of the Crippled
It is imperative that all "men" beware of how they walk. If you are a "man of God" like Jacob was, take heed to what you do! Devils will challenge all true men sent by God and this challenge will last your entire lifetime on earth. There is no discharge from warfare with the Dragon except the grave. Remember Lot's wife?! You cannot walk away with the Holy Spirit from the entanglements of this life and look back with a desire to reclaim some rudiments of this world. The story of Elisha, Gehazi, and Naaman has some "understanding" for you! II Kings ch. 5. A pillar of salt does not walk!
Now when Jacob was returning to his Father's house (an analogy of one returning to God) he went to sleep. Jesus has taught us that it is not a good thing to be asleep in this earth, even if it is nighttime, Matthew 25:1-5, 26:39-41. But while Jacob slept a "figure" came upon him and wrestled with him in the darkness. We know something about wrestling, and we know who our opponent is. It is the spirit prince and power of darkness! Ephesians 6:12. But Jacob assumed he was wrestling with an angel. But this was no angel of God. The Suns of God arise with healing in their wings, not pain and damage to one's leg! Psalm 19:1-6; Malachi 4:2; Revelation 10:1. This so-called (fake) angel wanted to get away before the sun came up. Because the sun consumes all darkness, darkness cannot maintain itself in its presence! Neither can a false Christ, an imitation angel, or a God-pretender have power when the Sun of God arises in our hearts. Jacob's problem is that he had been sleeping in the night and he got jumped! His reward for His trouble was a wounded thigh. After this episode he had to walk "halting upon his thigh". While men sleep, they see dreams and visions; they hear voices and receive "unctions"; some even speak in tongues ... and they will swear to you that they are dealing with angels! But what were the circumstances surrounding Jacob's tryst? Esau was coming to meet him! You know what happened between those two! So how did Jacob really feel about Esau? Did he love him in his heart like a brother? If your heart is not perfect with God and ALL MEN (ALL YOUR HUMAN BRETHREN), you also may walk spiritually "halting upon your thigh" because you cannot walk in love and brotherhood before God who can and does read our hearts!
Jesus came to undo the crippling works of devils in the lives of men. When he touched men, the maimed, the lame, and the halt straightened up and walked right. This work is the very direct opposite of the devious work the fake angel did to Jacob. When you analyze a work or try the spirits, do not be like Jacob. Compare everything to Jesus, and let him be your rose-colored eyeglasses by which you view everything else. Gabriel taught me to view everything through God's balance, Jesus the right-hand and the Holy Spirit, God's "upper" lefthand. They form the "balance" that he uses! Revelation 6:5. Now if you cannot feel within your heart that all men are your true spirit brethren, and if in your heart you maintain rudiments of anger, hatred, bitterness, and indifference to some because of race, creed, color, or their false religion, or that "they are sinners", then you need a touch from the hand of Jesus. Let his words and his ways remold your thinking, behavior, and outlook. I am sure he can make you straighten up your act and walk "upright".
It Is Better to Fly
If you are a "man" before God, why walk when you can fly!? Walking from one point to another takes time and if the distance is far, you might get tired and winded before you arrive at your destination. Here is what can happen if you wait on God: " He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:  But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint", Isaiah 40:29-31. I personally prefer the flying chariot of God. It has awsome speed. It is as swift as lightening and moves with the speed of light. If you are in the bosom of the Father and covered with His feathers (the Archangel's wings) then you can ride the high places of the earth and move around in heavenly places. " As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:  So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.  He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;  Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape", Deuteronomy 32:12-14. But if you want to do all that, you must get really close to God. You cannot impress Him with what you are not, PROVERBS 16:2. He will measure your heart every step of the way in every situation wherein you may find yourself. God is not like men. Self-flattery will get you nowhere. He will prove you and reprove you in the heat of trial until your mind is the way He wants you to be.
In a dream I saw myself walking on my hands. I was content to do this until I came to a kitchen with a dirty floor. I did not want to walk there. I refuse to cook in a messy kitchen and my children can attest to that. And the Spirit of God does not like dwelling in an unclean temple. When you work with God or rather when God works with you, anything is possible allegorically speaking or realistically in spirit. How men walk in the earth is important. Most men lack spiritual wisdom and understanding and are like beasts before God. Some are led and mislead by their noses and technically they go about on all fours. We were seen in Peter's vision as a bunch of animals. Peter did not mention one man among them. Peter himself lacked essential understanding which is why the Spirit began to enlighten him. One can become a man before God if he can get proper understanding. "The Man Gabriel", God's designated Teacher, can be very helpful in making a man out of us if we can become his students. Every man must remain alert while in this life. There is a WAR going on between us and the Dragon and there is no exit from the battle except the grave. It is God's "understanding" that sets men apart from the other created creatures. When we understand, we love all they way God does. Racism, hatred, indifference, and a lack of love for all has a crippling effect upon men. Some are lame and halt upon their thighs as they walk because of dissembling of their hearts when it comes to love and the brotherhood of all men. But God can fix anything. If one is a man of God, why walk when you can fly?! One must be very close to God to accomplish this, spiritually speaking. The priest of the Most High God does it all. He walks on his hands and feet. He runs and he flies. When God is with you anything is possible! But if you cannot fly, then walk with Gabriel. You will be a MAN, My son!!
