The Two Hands of God

Very few Christians are aware of the difference between
the right and left hand of God. For the most part we have
taught that God is a one armed or one handed individual.
The thought of God having a right hand and a left hand
should not be strange to us. In the Scriptures we find
the right hand of God mentioned many times, and the left
hand of God is mentioned on just a few occasions.

A lot has been said as to the meaning of the right hand,
but few have any understanding or revelation of the
significance of the left hand. First, let us look at the
meaning of these two words, right and left. The word
"right" as used with "hand" is generally the Hebrew word
"yamiym" meaning STRONGER, MORE DEXTEROUS. The word for
"left" is "smowl" meaning DARK. From the meaning of
these two words it is very easy to understand that God's
right hand is His strength and dexterity, or His
wonderful ability to do all things. The implication is
that the right hand of God is the GOOD HAND of God, doing
GOOD things.

The Psalmist confirms this when he says in Psalms 16:11,

"In Thy presence is fullness of joy; at Thy RIGHT HAND
are PLEASURES for evermore"

Again in Psalms 118:15-16,

"The voice of REJOICING and SALVATION in the tabernacles
of the righteous: the RIGHT HAND of the Lord doeth
valiantly. The RIGHT HAND of the Lord is exalted"

To which the prophet Isaiah adds in Isaiah 41:10,

"Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for
I am thy God: I will STRENGTHEN thee; yea, I will HELP
thee; yea, I will UPHOLD thee with the RIGHT HAND of My

But, as we have noted, the left hand in the Old Testament
means DARK and from this we can readily understand that
it signifies the opposite or what we call bad or evil.
The left hand represents the DARK SIDE OF GOD. This is
the hand of God so little understood. The distinctive
work of these two hands is graphically portrayed in the
wonderful parable Jesus told of the sheep and the goats.
Jesus said in Mat. 25:31-46 (NIV),
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the
angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly
glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and
he will separate the people one from another as a
shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put
the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you
who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the
kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was
thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a
stranger and you invited me in,
I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you
looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we
see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you
something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and
invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When
did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you
did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you
did for me.’

“Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me,
you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for
the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave
me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing
to drink,
I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed
clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in
prison and you did not look after me.’

“They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry
or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in
prison, and did not help you?’ “He will reply, ‘I tell
you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the
least of these, you did not do for me.’
“Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the
righteous to eternal life.”

It is important to understand in this parable that this
separation of the sheep from the goats was brought about,
not on the basis of whether one had accepted Jesus Christ
as his personal saviour, but solely on the basis of
WORKS. Everything depended entirely upon what the sheep
or goats had DONE or had NOT DONE. There was nothing of
faith or a spiritual experience connected with this
separation. The sheep were set on God's RIGHT HAND
because of the fact that they had done something. They
had given meat and drink to the Lord's brethren, clothed
them, visited them, and comforted them.

All of these things the Lord said they had DONE TO HIM.
But the sheep confessed that they had never seen Him, so
how could they have done these things to the Lord? He
answered, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one
of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'
All of this is a kind of ministry performed unto the Lord
Himself and it brought all of these people into a
separation unto the RIGHT HAND of God! This brought them
through an entrance into a Kingdom prepared for them from
the foundation of the world.

This kingdom was not to be some far-off land of ivory
palaces, golden streets, beautiful mansions, white night
gowns, wings and harps, where there is nothing to do and
all eternity to do it in. THIS IS A KINGDOM. And because
it is a kingdom it denotes ruler ship and advancement of
all kinds. It indicates the bringing of a great many
people into a higher realm. But the people who had never
done all these things mentioned by the Lord were
separated unto the LEFT HAND of God! They received no
kingdom. There were no rewards for work done or
attainments reached. They entered into the dark side of
God where they were put under Kingdom Authority and were
placed in a process of fiery judgment to receive

There is a lot of revelation truth in these words of
Jesus: "These shall go away into everlasting punishment."   
The word punishment is from the Greek "kolasis" which
means simply, punishment. But it comes from the root
"kolazo" which sheds precious light upon the nature of
the punishment. 'Kolazo', according to Strong's
Concordance, bears only two shades of meaning, namely,
'to curtail' or 'to chastise'. To "curtail" means to
restrain as a person is restrained in jail or a child is
restrained when he is "grounded" for a week because of
some disobedience. 'Chastise' has one simple meaning
according to Webster's New World Dictionary: to punish in
order to correct, usually by beating.

It should be clear to any thoughtful mind that the
subject here is not meaningless, sadistic, unending
torture, but PURPOSEFUL CORRECTION. While the King James
Version states that these goats go into 'everlasting
fire' and 'everlasting punishment' that is not quite the
meaning of the Greek. The Greek word here translated
everlasting is 'aionios', and aionios is the adjective
form of the Greek noun 'aion'. Aion nowhere means
eternal! Its simple meaning is 'an age'. In its plural
form it means 'ages'. This fact can be unquestionably and
incontrovertibly demonstrated from numerous Testament

Now, once we understand that aionios is the ADJECTIVE
FORM of the NOUN aion, a simple little sixth-grade
grammar lesson should once and for all establish the
exact meaning of 'aionios'. A noun is a word that tells
what you are talking about. A noun is a word that names
something, a person, place, thing, quality, etc. Boy,
water, tree, age (period of time), truth are nouns. An
adjective, however, is a word that is used with a noun to
describe the noun. It is a word that tells you what kind,
what color, etc.

If you wanted to tell about the hat a woman was wearing
you would describe the hat in some way. You might say
that it was a large red hat. Large, red are adjectives,
words that describe what kind and what color the hat is.

Some words are both nouns and adjectives, that is, the
same word can be used both ways. Sometimes the adjective
form of the word is identical to the noun form, while at
other times the spelling is slightly different. But
anyone with even an elementary knowledge of grammar
(English or Greek) knows that the meaning of a noun and
the meaning of the same word in its adjective form MUST
CORRESPOND! It cannot have one meaning as a noun and an
exactly OPPOSITE meaning as an adjective!

Let me illustrate it this way. If we say, "John is in
college," the word college is a noun. But if we say,
"John has sixteen college credits," college is an
adjective, modifying the word credits - telling what kind
of credits. Now we all know what a college is, so we
understand what kind of institution John is attending in
the first sentence. Since we know the meaning of college,
when we come to the second sentence we have no difficulty
understanding what kind of credits John has - college
credits. No one in his right mind is going to read that
and conclude that John has just finished kindergarten, or
that he has a diploma showing he finished sixteen lessons
in leather craft at the YMCA, or that he has $16.00 worth
of credit at a department store!

College as a noun and college as an adjective cannot have
altogether different meanings. They mean the same in both
cases! And yet men who should know better tell us that
the Greek noun 'aion' means an age, or ages which is
TIME, and then proceed to explain how the adjective form
of the same word, "aionios", means exactly the opposite -
unending, everlasting, ETERNAL!
A child of ten should be able to understand that is not
so. The adjective 'aionios' modifies two nouns in Mat.
25:46: punishment and life. It tells what kind of
punishment and what kind of life Jesus is talking about.
It is ages-lasting punishment and ages-lasting life, or

Now I can hear someone protesting, "But isn't the life we
have received from God ETERNAL LIFE?" Certainly God's
life is eternal life. But we have received that life
injected into TIME, so that the inworking of that life
through the processing's of God is experienced in
relation to TIME rather than ETERNITY.

Let me explain. Anything that is absolutely eternal is
not only unending, but is also UNCHANGEABLE. Anything
that changes in any way is not eternal, for in the change
some characteristic is left behind and a new one
acquired. In every change something ends and something
else begins, at least in form. That which dwells in an
eternal state knows NO CHANGE. Change is possible only
in that which is limited, imperfect, or not fully
The Lord declares of Himself, "I am the Lord, I CHANGE
NOT" (Mal. 3:6), and the inspired apostle says of Him,
"with Whom there is no VARIABLENESS, neither shadow of
turning" (James 1:17). But we, in our spiritual life, are
STILL BEING CHANGED! "And all of us ... are constantly
BEING TRANSFIGURED (changed) into His very own image in
ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to
another" (II Cor. 3:18,      Amplified). Thank God! we
are being changed! The life of God that has been
deposited in us, which is His Word, is perfect and will
never change. The manifestation of that life, however, is
subjected to a process limited by our understanding of
His Word. The manifestation of that life is in a limited,
imperfect, underdeveloped stage, and in some measure
immature. This is why Paul said in Rom 12:1-2,

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of
God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable
service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye
transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may
prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect,
will of God."

God has dispensed that life into us in a time frame and
through a process of time with its experiences and
revelations, the spiritual life may be perfected and
matured and brought to the fullness of that which HE
HIMSELF IS. When the process is completed and we are
fully conformed to that life within us, we will see Him
AS HE IS and there will BE NO MORE CHANGE.

Complete eternal security is known only by the overcomers
who have fully and forever conquered every vestige of the
world, the flesh, and the devil, having been conformed
into the image of the Son. Of these triumphant ones it is
written, "To him that OVERCOMETH will I give to eat of
the TREE OF LIFE," and again, "He that OVERCOMETH... I
will NOT BLOT HIS NAME OUT of the Book of Life" (Rev.
2:7; 3:5).
The inference is clear ... until this "overcomer" state
is attained, it is possible to have one's name BLOTTED
OUT of the Book of Life. That could not be ETERNAL LIFE,
for if it were absolutely eternal it could not be lost!
Little wonder then, that our Lord says to the Church at
Smyrna, "Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give
thee a CROWN OF LIFE" (Rev. 2:10).
It is my deep conviction that He speaks not of the death
that takes this old body to the cemetery, but the death
that comes by the INWORKING OF HIS CROSS until all that
pertains to the realm of carnality has been completely
and forever dealt with. Then, and only then, are we
CROWNED WITH LIFE His life reigning within without
interference or possibility of defeat!

The life we now have is a progressing, growing,
conquering life - the LIFE OF THE AGES. It is life that
has come by the quickening of our spirit by His Spirit,
giving a new beginning, and the potential to become, in
due time, all He is. But I am sure all of us must confess
that there is much progress to be made in our lives and
much growth and much transformation to be experienced yet
before we stand in Him in the fullness of that life that
needs no change and no further development.

Only faintly now do our eyes behold the splendor of that
ETERNAL REALM which lies before us, but if we approach
softly with reverence and godly fear, the Lord of glory
will meet us and will be a Father unto us and we shall be
the Sons of God in whom the Father shall unfold the
fullness of His life, mind, will and glory. Paul told
Timothy in 1 Tim 6:12,

"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good
profession before many witnesses."

By FAITH we lay hold of the eternal life that has been
deposited within us. However, this is not a name it and
claim it proposition. The laying hold on eternal life
kind of faith is this. We know that as the continual
unveiling of His Word to our understanding renews our
minds we are being changed into His Image. This is a
process that He puts each of us through to purge us from
the world. This process cannot be bypassed by Faith.
Jesus said, "Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting
( aionian) fire " The Bible in Modern English by Farrar
Fenton reads, "And these He will dismiss into a LONG

Rotherham's New Testament says, "These shall go away into
age-abiding correction."
Young's Literal translation says, "And these shall go
away to punishment age-during."

How sobering are these meaningful words of truth,

"And He shall set the sheep on the RIGHT HAND, but the
goats on the LEFT. Then shall the King say unto them on
His RIGHT HAND, Come, ye blessed of My Father...then
shall He say also unto them on the LEFT HAND, Depart from
Me, ye cursed!"
But just what or who are these TWO HANDS OF GOD? The two
hands of God represent two aspects of God's dealings, two
ways in which He moves and acts to accomplish His
purposes. We can readily see from the parable of the
sheep and the goats that God deals through both POSITIVE
and NEGATIVE forces. The right hand of God speaks of God
moving and acting through POSITIVE FORCES, while the left
hand of God denotes God moving and acting through
NEGATIVE FORCES. A key to this vital truth is found in
the words of David in Ps. 111:7 wherein he states,

"The works of HIS HANDS are verity and judgment."

God has two hands, one of verity, and one of judgment.
The word "verity" is actually in the Hebrew the word for
TRUTH. Thus we see with one hand He is bringing forth
truth and with the other hand of His judgment He is
moving to bring us into harmony with truth. What
beautiful co-ordination in all the works of His hands!
Every time God initiates a new phase of His purpose, He
then brings forth the measures needed to bring us into
alignment with that purpose. If He can do this through
POSITIVE forces He will in the dealing of His right
hand. But if corrective measures are needed He will
stretch forth His left hand and bring negative forces
into action to teach us the necessary lesson. How often
we pray for God to stretch forth His right hand of VERITY
because we are hungry for blessing and truth, and He
graciously imparts.

In speaking of the corrective judgment brought upon
Israel by Babylon, the prophet cried in Jer. 51:7,
"Babylon has been a golden cup in the Lord's hand"

God used Babylon as a NEGATIVE FORCE in HIS HAND to
discipline His people. John saw the power and love in His
mighty right hand in Rev 1:16-20,

"And He had in His RIGHT HAND seven stars ... the seven
stars are the messengers (ministries) of the seven

Again we see the working of HIS TWO HANDS. In the one
hand is Babylon, a golden cup of fury and judgment, a
vessel of wrath. And in the other hand we see seven
stars, light bearers, positive ministries, vessels of
mercy with a quickening word, through whom He shall
reveal His truth and glory to all nations!


That "all things are of God" is declared over and over
again in the Bible. Did not the Lord say to Pharaoh, that
wicked man of rebellion against all that was of God Rom
"I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might
display my power in you and that my name might be
proclaimed in all the earth."

These carnal little heads of ours cannot ascertain the
infinite wisdom of God's mind. God is in all things, and
is responsible for all things, including all the so-
called evil things as well as good things. Is it not a
fearful thing to say that evil is of God? There is
nothing fearful about this view unless the TRUTH is
fearful! I would not be surprised if some of the
compatriots of the prophet Amos may have thought he was
speaking blasphemy when by the Holy Spirit he said in
Amos 3:6,
"Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not
be afraid? Shall there be EVIL in a city, and THE LORD

There are untold millions of Christians who do not like
to believe that ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD - including evil.
They much prefer to believe, as the harlot system has
taught them, that God created good, and the devil created
evil! Why, Oh why can men not believe the simple,
unvarnished Word of God? We even have God's own Word for
it - His positive statement that HE CREATES EVIL. Isaiah
45:7 says,

"That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from
the west, that THERE IS NONE BESIDE ME. I am the Lord,
and there is none else. I form the light, and create
darkness: I make peace, and CREATE EVIL. I THE LORD DO

And in Isaiah 54:16-17,

"See, it is I who created the blacksmith who fans the
coals into flame and forges a weapon fit for its work.
And it is I who have created the destroyer to work havoc;
no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will
refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the
heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their
vindication from me," declares the LORD."

Brother Dave, are you trying to tell me that God creates
evil? No! God is trying to tell you that He does. He is
sovereign! There is no other sovereign in all of
creation. I have shown to you what God, Himself, said
about this. Now, what are you going to do with this
information? More than likely, you are going to have to
change your understanding of this and admit that God is
guilty. No amount of trying to get around this can change
what He has said about it.

You say, "Surely it cannot mean that GOD creates evil,
sin, sinners, devils, famines, pestilence's, calamities,
judgments, wrongdoing!" The word here for 'evil' is the
Hebrew word 'ra' which is used throughout the Old
Testament to denote wickedness, sin, and all other evil
things. In some five hundred passages it is so used!
You must realize that it solves most all problems to
realize that all the forces of good and evil are directly
under the HAND and CONTROL of God. Then we can see that
God has PURPOSE in it all, and that no evil forces can
ever go beyond the bounds of the limits set by God to
accomplish His purpose. It is not even a question of how
much God PERMITS. The fact is that God creates just the
right amount and kind of evil in order to bring His will
to pass fully and completely in all He does.

But let us UNDERSTAND! The good that God uses COMES OUT
FROM GOD. Also, the evil that God uses is CREATED by God
only for the purpose that He has for it. The Bible states
that God IS GOOD, IS LIFE, IS LIGHT, etc. Nowhere does
the Bible say that God IS EVIL, only that He CREATES
evil. There is a vast difference. Once having been used
of God, He then brings it to naught, or as is often said
in the bible, “It came to pass!”

One of the fundamental laws of creation is that an
OPPOSING FORCE is necessary for growth, and to produce
strength, stamina, and endurance. Any living thing that
grows up without any opposition is weak and powerless.
God's NEW CREATION must be strong and powerful, and
anything that desires to be strong, or anyone, must
wrestle with a force that is contrary to them. Any man,
who wants to develop muscular power and be strong, must
spend weeks and months and years in vigorous training
doing heavy exercises, lifting heavy weights, using the

A plant that grows in the greenhouse sheltered from the
winds and rains, pampered day after day, may grow large,
but it is inherently weak, and if suddenly exposed to the
elements will wither and die. But a plant that is
constantly exposed to the fierce winds and pounding
rains, burning heat and chilling cold, is strong and not
easily destroyed. Likewise, if we would be the SONS OF
THE MOST HIGH we must be STRONG in the Lord and in the
power of HIS might!

Our Father wants us to be strong, so He has wisely given
us WRESTLING PARTNERS to wrestle with, so we will become
strong.   These are NEGATIVE FORCES (thank God for them!)
that come from the LEFT HAND of God. Some of these
adverse things are the principalities and powers in the
heavenlies. Paul said in Eph 6:12,

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities and powers, against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in
heavenly places"

There is a great and magnificent future ahead for the
Sons of God and a great work our Father has for us to do
in the ages to come and He is preparing us and making us
ready for the high and holy place He has for us. Can we
ENCOUNTER are working together for our good - to develop
the strength, character, wisdom, and power we must have?
The chastening and judgments of God, too, are negative,
though they do bring forth a positive result. The
positive work of God from the realm of His right hand
lies in the inner anointing, guidance, enlightening,
etc., and in the five fold ministries. The Lord has set
these in the body for our exhortation, edification, and

However, there is the work of purging, pruning,
discipline, dealing, and training that must be fulfilled
in each and every one of God's Sons. The positive work of
God is wrought directly by the Holy Spirit within or by
the Spirit through His anointed ministries. The negative
work of God is brought about by Satan, his co-horts, his
instruments, and the whole negative realm of evil. All
the people, things, and happenings used in the chastening
and judgments of God are of Satan's manipulation.

For example, if someone is opposing us and causing us
trouble, this opposition or trouble is directly the work
of Satan. Again, a thief who steals our money, or a fire
which burns down our house, is the work of the adversary.
If someone is obstinate, rebellious and sins against God,
and as a result becomes seriously ill, this sickness is a
work of the devil. Therefore, all the people, things, and
happenings involved in the discipline and judgment of God
are measured to us by God according to our need. But the
one who is manipulating and acting upon us in order to
harm us is Satan. Actually, if you want to study this
deeper, James said in James 1:13-17,

“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God:
for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither temps he any
man: but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of
his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust has conceived,
it brings forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, brings
forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren. Every good
gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down
from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness,
neither shadow of turning.”

The whole problem is caused by our mistaken identity and
the double mind ness we have. We see the left hand of God
revealed in the life of Job. God had blessed this man
with great wealth and a large family. He had seven sons
and three daughters; He owned seven thousand sheep, three
thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, and five
hundred she-asses. His household was very great with many
hired servants so that this man was the greatest of all
the men of the east. The only reliable testimony we have
of Job's true state of being is that spoken by the Lord
Himself, and HE declared that Job was a PERFECT AND
UPRIGHT MAN, one that feared God and eschewed evil.

Perfect yes, but UNTRIED, UNTESTED, and UNPROVEN, as Job
himself witnessed in the midst of his ordeal, declaring,
"He knows the way that I take: when He has tried me, I
shall come forth as gold" (Job 23:10).
His perfection remained to be fully proven, tested, and
demonstrated. Now, what does God do but deliberately hand
over this perfect man into the hands of Satan to do his
worst upon him. It was because God desired to test Job
that He brought forth "the smith to blow the coals upon
the fire."

Please note that it was not Satan's idea to persecute
poor old Job! Oh, no! It was God Himself who brought up
the subject! There Satan was, presenting himself before
the Lord, appearing for duty, and God asked, "Where have
you been?" Satan replied, "Walking up and down in the
earth" (no mention of Job at all). "Well, Satan," the
Lord asked, "Have you considered My servant Job? Have you
noticed that he eschews evil and fears God?

You can be assured that Satan HAD noticed Job, but he
wasn't doing anything to him. Satan responds, saying,
"Have You not made an hedge about him, and about his
house, and about all that he has on every side? You have
blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is
increased in the land. But put forth Your HAND now, and
touch all that he has, and he will curse You to Your

Did Satan ask permission to put forth his OWN HAND and
touch Job? Not at all! He said, YOUR HAND," or "God, you
put forth YOUR HAND and touch him." But he challenged
God to stretch out HIS HAND and that if HE touched Job
and took away his blessing, Job would curse Him to His
face. And the Lord said unto Satan, "Behold, all that he
has is in YOUR POWER; only upon himself put not forth

Can we not see by this that Satan was the NEGATIVE FORCE
through which GOD WAS MOVING UPON JOB. Is it not clear
that this was the LEFT HAND of God as He was working with
Job to bring him into yet a higher place than he had
occupied before? Though Satan moved swiftly against Job,
GOD WAS DOING THIS and His intention was to do Job good.
This was not Satan acting out his own little plan in
rebellion against God, but his authority to do this came
only as God allowed him to act!

In the second chapter of Job we find all this repeated.
Again the sons of God have come before God to report on
their activities, and again Satan comes among them.
Again, Job is presented to Satan by God as a perfect and
upright man. I now quote from Job 2:4-6.

"And Satan answered the Lord and said, Skin for skin, yea
all that a man has will he give for his life. But put
forth YOUR HAND now and touch his bone and his flesh and
he will curse You to Yopur face. And the Lord said unto
Satan, Behold, he is in YOUR HAND; but save his life."
Now Job's body will be wracked with disease and tortured
with pain, and he will lose his reputation before all
men. His good works will be forgotten and he will become
the object of ridicule from those who were formerly his
friends. I would like to draw your attention to the
magnificent words which reveal Job's reaction to all
this. Job 2:9-10 says,

"Then said his wife unto him, Do you still retain your
integrity? Curse God and die! But he said unto her, You
speak as one of the foolish women speaks. What? shall we
receive good at the HAND OF GOD and shall we not receive

Notice! Job never did recognize any such person as Satan
in all his trouble. He recognized ONLY GOD in this and
said that even as he had received good from the HAND OF
GOD was it not logical that he should receive EVIL ALSO

What faith! What marvellous UNDERSTANDING! Job actually
attributes all this evil to the work of God. He doesn't
even recognize Satan as doing anything, no sitting on the
ash heap moaning, "The old devil has been after me all
week!" It will be an appalling shock to many precious
people to learn that in ALL this Job did NOT SIN with his

We have every right to conclude from this that Job was
speaking the absolute truth when he attributed all this
evil to God. What he had said was right in the sight of
God. No place did the Lord rebuke Job for his words in
any way. In fact, in the end of the experience God said
that Job had spoken RIGHTLY of Him and ALL OTHERS HAD
Job said in Job 19:21,

"Have pity upon me, All of you my friends: for the HAND

Whose hand touched him? The hand of God! WHICH hand of
God? Why, beloved, it was the LEFT HAND of God! Job knew
that the hand of God had not been laid upon him for good,
but for evil. Prior to this experience, Job had known
nothing but the RIGHT HAND of God in good and blessing,
in the anointing of God.

The nominal Church and its preachers try to make us
believe that Satan conspired to do all this to poor old
Job by his own design. But the truth is that it was God
and Satan was only the LEFT HAND of God, or the negative
means God used.

The nominal Church has no knowledge at all of what they
are talking about because they know nothing of the ways
and the workings of God. They have exalted Satan to
godhood, giving HIM the glory for all he does, and,
indeed, in most things, they attribute more power to him
and praise him more than they do God! Ignorantly these
foolish ones talk about poor little God "trying" to do
this and that, while the shrewder and smarter devil slips
up on God's blind side and demolishes His whole work.
Rubbish! Don't believe for one moment that anything in
all God's great universe in not in the control of HIS
HANDS or part of His plan.

God IS GOD, He IS in full control of every sphere of
activity, and Satan himself is under the province of God.
May the blessed Holy Spirit enlighten our minds to
perceive the truth that Satan has no power at all except
that which God delegates to him. If you believe that
Satan is a problem to Almighty God, then your God is
entirely too small! It is true that those who would be
Sons of God MUST OVERCOME HIM. But when that purpose is
accomplished, you will have been fully dealt with by
God's LEFT HAND so that you might be exalted to a place
of eminence, glory, and power at GOD'S RIGHT HAND!

The left hand of God is manifested through a people who
are in the kingdom of darkness. The right hand of God is
likewise revealed through a people, the Sons of the
Kingdom. Thank God! we are not called to be a part of the
left hand company.
Paul said in Col. 3:1-2.

"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the

Jesus said in Rev 3:21,

"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"

Psalms 118:15-16 says,

"The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the
tabernacles of the righteous: the RIGHT HAND of the Lord
doeth valiantly, the RIGHT HAND of the Lord is exalted"

Although at this time there is humiliation and suffering,
there is coming a time of exaltation, already experienced
within.   Although today it seems as though not much is
happening outwardly, yet there is a time approaching when
GOD'S RIGHT HAND COMPANY shall step forth in the fullness
of the power of HIS THRONE and there shall be a
manifestation of the "greater works" Jesus spoke of. When
on earth, the firstborn Son suffered reproach and finally
death - but where is He now? Exalted to the RIGHT HAND of
the Father, far above all principalities and powers, and
every name that is named, not only in this age, but in
that which is to come. He passed through a season of
shame and reproach, but dwells now in a glory that can
never fade. And there is a place with Him and in Him for
all who overcome, a place of glory and eminence and power
at the right hand of God for all who move on into God!

I was led to post this in response to your article.
Thanks for revealing the truth.
It is true that the sleeping church will undergo discipline at the hands of Babylon but Daddy has a bigger purpose and all will be turned over to Him in the end. What is soon to come will bring an end to the divisions within the church and cause the real church to emerge through the fire. (without even smelling like smoke)

June 6, 2007 4:05 am
I awoke from sleep, and the conversation went as follows:

I am the Righteous Judge. When my judgments begin, it will be like in the days of Job. He lost family, house, he lost everything; yet he was righteous. He did not love me because of what I did for him, but for WHO I AM. I alone see and know the hearts of men. Do not judge anyone but yourself. Fix your eyes on me. You must love Me more than friends, possessions, or even family. If all is taken, will you still be able to love me, and not curse me as Job did? When others are judging you falsely, will you trust me? This is the ultimate test. Will you pass? There will be a double blessing and a crown of honor given to those who pass the test. Warn the people. I am sending my judgments. I am the Righteous Judge. I have spoken.

O Daddy, I ask for mercy in your judgment. I ask you to give me time to warn the people. I ask for divine appointments with the people who desire to know truth. I ask that as I speak you anoint the word that it becomes a consuming fire in the hearer so there will be no excuses. May it burn in their hearts and minds, and for those who are yours may they feel your urgency to the degree that they warn others. You are the Righteous Judge and you are perfect. I thank you that mercy always triumphs over judgment. Lord I understand why you must do what you are going to do. The church has been asleep for a long time. Help me to sound the alarm. Many in my own family including my husband and children live their lives as if you do not exist. Open their eyes to see, and their ears to hear. Each is responsible for his or her own heart. O Daddy use the words I speak to pierce the heart and bring conviction as you did with Jonah. We are an evil people, and we live in a nation that would deserve judgment.

You are right. I will give you a little time, but only a little. You must begin at home warning the people. Tell them I love them, but I HATE SIN! I will no longer ignore the way they live. They must repent and turn from their wicked ways if they are going to survive what is coming. It will come as a flood with little warning. Only those whose hearts have been previously prepared (or sealed) will be able to make it through.

O Daddy, as I remember, Job was fervent in prayer but his children were taken anyway. No one can repent for the sin of another. We will each be responsible for our own hearts. We have each been given the same opportunity to know YOU, and the question is still the same. WHOM WILL YOU WORSHIP OR WHAT DO YOU WORSHIP?

This is correct. As the things that man has placed their trust in begin to be taken away they will become angry and curse Me just like Job's wife wanted him to do. Who and what they really love will be exposed for all to see. When the heat is turned up, what is hidden beneath the surface comes out. Listen carefully. This will be a real distinguishing mark. My chosen will still have joy in the midst of the chaos. They will not be angry and depressed because they will know that this is necessary for Me to test the hearts of man; I tested My very own Son before bringing Him to glory. All who truly love Him and know Him will pick up their cross and follow Him. Just like My Son, those who have My heart will pass the test and will pray for the ones who use and abuse them.

O Daddy, I desperately want to pass the test. For the joy set before Jesus He endured the cross despising the shame. Lord teach me to endure the cross, and to despise the shame, but still be able to pray for friends, enemies and even family members who do not understand.
I will because you have asked. Many people ask for things or wealth but few ask for true treasures as you have. You are my beloved daughter in whom I am well pleased.

Thank you Daddy, but I know that all that I am, and all that I have become is simply because of your grace. You have said it is, so I know it is true. Your grace is sufficient for your strength is made perfect in my weakness.

This is correct. Weakness is not failure, but a door of opportunity to see whether you will show others what you can do, or allow them to see what I can do through you if you simply submit your will to mine.

O Daddy, I know this is true wisdom and I thank you for it. I know, it in my head, but am not convinced I know it in my heart.

Correct again, but by the time you come through the fires of testing you will not only know this by heart, you will know Me by heart. Our hearts will beat together.

Thank You, Daddy!

You are welcome, Cindy

An hour later He said,
Your greatest hour of need will be My greatest hour of glory!

Thank you. Cindy and Julia.What a word Cindy.I was just
reading yesterday in Jeremiah 1:57 Babylon hath been a
golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth
drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore
the nations are mad.
I honestly did not read all of this article before
posting. I read bits and parts because it was so
lengthy.I felt lead to post anyway.I came back later when
I had more time and read the whole thing.It is speaking
of what some call universal reconciliation.George Hawtin
from the latter rain movement believed this way.I printed
his article According To The Purpose out years ago.I put
it on the shelve because I did not quiet understand his
view on hell.I thought it was heresy.But in the back of
my mind I thought maybe I have to many traditions as I'm
sure we all have,everyone who has been taught by
man.George Hawtin wrote,"Some will immediately ask me
whether I do not believe in hell. My answer is very
definite on this point.I most certainly do believe in
hell,but the hell of the bible and the hell of human
tradition are not the same thing at all.The hell of
tradition is punitive,hopeless,and eternal,while the hell
of the scripture like every judgment of God is
corrective,remedial,and restorative. I do not understand
enough of this great truth to make broad claims about
it,but I do want to say that the whole doctrine of
eternal punishment stands on the shaky foundation of a
misunderstanding of the Greek word Aion."and then he goes
into detail about the translation of the word Aion. This
is something that maybe god is wanting me to study
again.I only want what the scriptures say and not man's
opinions.Every thing I submit I submit for discernment.I
fear God too much to say everything this man wrote is
truth.Everything needs to be weighed with the word of
God.I have received some spankings from his left hand and
I certainly do not want anymore.I am learning obedience
through suffering.I only want to obey him.I received this
article yesterday.I thought it went along with this
article concerning his right hand.
By Glenn Jackson:
Always remember that you are seated at the right hand of
the Father with Me [the Ascension Life], and that "any"
manifestation of Satan is a form of death - but also
remember that death is "under your feet" as you abide
[dwell] with Me!

        ...."The Lord [the Father] says to my Lord
[Jesus]: "Sit at My right hand, until I make thine
enemies a footstool for Thy feet. The Lord will stretch
forth Thy strong sceptre from Zion, saying, "Rule in the
midst of Thine enemies." Thy people will volunteer freely
in the day of Thy power; in holy array [the splendor of
holiness] from the womb of the dawn [the "inner
chamber"].... Psalm 110:103 NASB

        ...."For He [Jesus] must reign until He has put
all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will
be abolished is death. For He [the Father] has put all
things in subjection under His [Jesus and His anointed
one's] feet"....
1 Corinthians 15:25-27a NASB

        ...."In the way of righteousness is life, and in
its pathway there is no death [no death can remain
standing]".... Proverbs 12:28 NASB

        ...."And He raised us up together with Him and
made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with
Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in
Christ Jesus [the Messiah, the Anointed One]"....
Ephesians 2:6 The Amplified Translation

        ...."Jesus approached and, breaking the silence,
said to them, 'All authority [all power of rule] in
heaven and on earth has been given to Me".... Matthew
28:18 The Amplified Translation

        ....'"Behold, I have given you authority to tread
on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the
enemy, and nothing will injure you".... Luke 10:19 NASB

        ...."If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word;
and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and
make Our abode with him".... John 14:23 NASB

        Fellowship with the Father and His Word in the
"inner chamber" on a daily basis takes one to [and
empowers them to "abide" in]{plain the "spiritual
positioning" [the Ascension Life - the place of absolute
authority in Christ]spoken of in Paul's letter to the
Ephesians - "far above" the positioning of the Enemy and
his forces in the heavenlies. In this place, one is not
only NOT ignorant of his schemes they also experience a
continual flow of revelation and Wisdom to devastate both
he and his forces, continually.God bless.

Hi Karen,
I did read the article and could relate. It bore witness with things the Father has shown me. It will all turn our for our good in the end if we are truly (In Christ).
He is making all things new, now all new things. The enemy is a tool of refining in the masters hands but He has no power the Lord does not give him or that we give him because we fail to understand who we are and what the death and resurrection of Christ paid for.
Be Blessed, Karen.

I am glad you received understanding from what the Father has given to me. The important thing to remember is that the Father is not coming to judge people, but sin. We do not wrestle against flesh and blood.
Daddy's desire in judgment is to separate the sin from the sinner, and to show us what we love and worship.
I bless you with peace and understanding in the days ahead. May the Father pour out on you the revelation and wisdom to bring heaven to earth in the sphere of influence you are called to impact.
In Christ,

Thank you Cindy for your response.Yes father is coming to
judge sin.He is judging everything out of his church that
is not of him.Sin brings death and the last enemy to be
conquered is death.He is putting death under his feet and
we are his feet company.As in the book of Rev 1:15: And
his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a
furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.My old
pastor said when ever brass is mentioned it means
judgement. I also remember Job feeling like the sky was
brass.Like you said it will turn out for good in the end
if we are in Christ Jesus.He is amazing he works
everything for our good.God bless.
