Removing The Veil 2
In our last article we saw that the we presently (2008/2009) living in a time typified by Noah’s stay in the ark on Mount Ararat as the flood waters receded and later Noah removes the covering from the ark and exits the ark with his family and the animals in the ark with him to replenish the earth.
This week, we will see how the covering is removed and ‘Noah’, his ‘family’ and the ‘animals’ exit the ark.
As the flood waters recede from the ark, those in the ark with understanding begin to ‘see’ spiritually more clearly because the spiritual death in the air around them is decreasing causing the ‘eyes’ of their understanding to become more enlightened.
Ephesians 4:18 ESV They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart.
Ephesians 2:2-3 MKJV in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience; (3) among whom we also had our way of life in times past, in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the thoughts, and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Luke 11:34-36 AMP Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye (your conscience) is sound and fulfilling its office, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound and is not fulfilling its office, your body is full of darkness. (35) Be careful, therefore, that the light that is in you is not darkness. (36) If then your entire body is illuminated, having no part dark, it will be wholly bright [with light], as when a lamp with its bright rays gives you light.
John 8:12 ESV Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.“
John 1:4 ESV In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
When the veil of the ark is finally removed, the spiritual darkness in the air around those in the ark is totally removed, so they now see the Word clearly under the covering of a spiritually perfect and mature leadership and no longer darkly as spiritual children as they used to before, receiving the same light that is on this perfect and mature leadership.
1 Corinthians 13:10-12 ESV (10) but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. (11) When I was a child, I spoke like a child; I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. (12) For now
(as children) we see in a mirror dimly, but then (as mature men) face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
Numbers 12:7-8 CEV But my servant Moses is the leader of my people. (8) He sees me face to face, and everything I say to him is perfectly clear. You have no right to criticize my servant Moses.”
Psalms 133:1-3 AMP A Song of Ascents. Of David. BEHOLD, HOW good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (2) It is like the precious ointment poured on the head, that ran down on the beard, even the beard of Aaron [the first high priest], that came down upon the collar and skirts of his garments [consecrating the whole body]. [Exod. 30:25, 30.] (3) It is like the dew of [lofty] Mount Hermon and the dew that comes on the hills of Zion; for there the Lord has commanded the blessing, even life forevermore [upon the high and the lowly].
When they leave the ark, they now go into the world to take this feast of the light of God’s wisdom to remove the veil from the ‘eyes’ of all nations, effecting the discipleship of the nations at the end of which this age will close!
Isaiah 25:6-7 ESV On this mountain the LORD of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. (7) And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations.
Matthew 24:14 ESV and this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come
