  1. I am wondering if you can explain the difference if there is one in the different translation of Gal.2:20. KJV
    “I am crucified with Christ never the less I live……….the life I now live I live by the faith of Christ”
    The other translation do not say the faith of Christ.

    I love this teaching and I have been deeply blessed by the Kingdom teachings. Thank you

    1. I cannot speak to why some translations for not include that statement since it is clearly in the Greek text. The Greek word used is “pistis {pis’-tis}
      Meaning: 1) conviction of the truth of anything, belief; in the NT of a conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, generally with the included idea of trust and holy fervour born of faith and joined with it 1a) relating to God 1a1) the conviction that God exists and is the creator and ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ 1b) relating to Christ 1b1) a strong and welcome conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom of God 1c) the religious beliefs of Christians 1d) belief with the predominate idea of trust (or confidence) whether in God or in Christ, springing from faith in the same 2) fidelity, faithfulness 2a) the character of one who can be relied on. It is translated as “faith” 239 times in the KJV Bible.

      If the difference you are speaking about is “faith of” and not “faith in” it can simply be the way the translators are interpreting it. “faith of” could be a contrasting to the faith of the Pharisees (from the School of Shamai) that were misapplying the Torah command for circumcision by stating it was the requirement for salvation rather than the work of Messiah.

  2. And Yeshua said take up your staff (of authority) and follow me… People interpret it as cross, as if we could suffer like Yeshua did and stone for our sins when He already did it for us for once and for all. What Yeshua is really saying is take the authority I have given you in my name and follow me!

    1. There are many layers of truth in Jesus’ statement. The Greek word used is “stauros,” which is used from the Cross. Some researchers believe that Cross goes all the way back to Babylon in which Semarimis would crucify her enemies. This would call us to be the resistance against Mystery Babylon. Since the staff of Adam became the Cross, it is a call for believers to crucify the old nature daily and follow (i.e., walk with Messiah). The authority for outward spiritual warfare was given after His resurrection in the authority of the believer — the is the staff of the Second Adam (Messiah).

  3. Yes, Cain was the first priest of darkness. And yes, Hasatan infused Eve’s DNA, somehow altering it(epigenetics, or whatever). Same thing we see happening today with all the vaccinations, Chemtrails, microwave cell towers, GMO’s, fluoridation, etc. It all has the capability of altering Benei Adam’s DNA… We are living as in the days of Noah.

  4. Thank you so much for having this conversation ~ especially about how to reach this generation and identifying that the whole “enamored with one’s emotions” (being wussess!!!) can only be dealt with by the power of the Holy Spirit ~ I feel so helpless and lonely . . . The mind bending programming that has taken place is becoming beyond repair unless an individual personally is taking note of their condition and desires to fight against it ~ Christianity has taken hold of the ring in the pigs snout as you say of self-idolatry ~ idolizing one’s emotions and feelings beyond what is healthy or life giving ~ Shalom

  5. Awesome website with great study and content!

  6. I’ve heard Dr Lake speak on this aspect of Genesis a few times now but I still remain confused and with question. Genesis 3:1 says the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. Firstly, I take this as the serpent was created with the ability to deceive (to summarise the context of my question), how do we later on in scripture link Satan to being the serpent? I’ve read elsewhere that the serpent would have been used by Satan/ under satans influence, but if this where true it seems to have contradiction to God making the serpent cunning. So I have to ask, why would God create this creature? God knows our weaknesses in our mind therefor would fall prey to deception/lies. Dr Lake says the serpent wasn’t in Eden until Adam sinned and didn’t keep to the garden, I don’t see this in scripture though and would appreciate a point in the right direction. Really hope you can help clarify.

    Note: I was able to find this interview on blogtalkradio as the video in the post isn’t working

    1. Dr. Lake did not say that the serpent was not in the garden until after the fall. In fact, he says the opposite. He wrote an entire chapter on this subject in his book, The Sheeriyth Imperative. The Nachach, used that eventually became known as “serpent,” was actually the name of the fallen angel that appeared to Adam and Eve. In its historical entomology, “nachash” eventually became used as “serpent”. However, the best definition is DRAGON. It was a fallen seraph that appeared to Adam and Eve and tempted them, not Lucifer.
