Welcome to Excellent Valley.
The Sword of the Spirit
is the Word of the Infinite God Almighty
(See Ephesians 6 verse 16 thru 17, Hebrews 4 verse 12 and Revelation verses.)
Paul writes in 2nd Timothy 2 verse 15; Study (that is be diligent) to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the WORD of TRUTH. The wise of heart, will hear the whole of the matter presented on this website, before coming to a final conclusion. (See Proverbs 18 verse 13.)
Why Call Me Lord,
Lord and do not the things I say to do?
The Almighty's Love enables the members within Christ's Covering Body to flow together as one in the Truth
and the Way of the His Holy Spirit through the Sanctifying Life giving Blood of His Son, the Christ of God's Salvation Love.
(See 2nd Thessalonians 2 verse 13 thru 17, John 13 verse 34 thru 35, Matthew 26 verse 26 and 1st Peter 4 verse 8.)
This is a an expanded introductory web page that contains within the web site two free E Books that began as one. In time, with God's Spirit of Grace, the one book was extrapolated and expanded into the two apologetic works that together stand on the Truth of the WORD of God. Both books have been enlarged, and remain open for communication modifications. Being in Love with the Truth that is Christ Jesus, the writer hopes that any changes in the communications of the writings will augment our understanding of the unfailing Truth of God's WORD.
It was through several night visions, that the Holy Spirit of God gave to a very insignificant person within Christ's Body, the beginning inspiration for the apologetic writings that are maintained freely within this web site. The principle manuscript is called "The Doctrine of Life, in Spirit and Truth". In years past, this was the primary work that was inspired by visionary revelations given to the recipient through the Light of God's Holy Spirit of Truth and Grace. Working within the apologetics of the writings, there are three significant visionary dreams presented by God's Holy Spirit of Truth. The Grace of the Spirit of God, gave clarifying revelation, of God's Spirit of Holy Unity within His Word that is essential to our set apart fellowship within the Body and Life giving Blood of Jesus Christ. Hopefully the cutting edges of the Sword of the Spirit of God, will be allowed to pierce the hearts of all of the called people of God, and present to them a better view of the expanse of God's New Covenant of Love in Christ Jesus. God's Love is to be received in God's Communion Grace by each of the faithful members who reside within the One Holy Body of Christ Jesus. The faithful members of the Body of Christ are to be sustained in fellowship with Father God Almighty, and with each other, through God's Holy Spirit of Life that is One with the cleansing Life Blood of our only Savior Jesus Christ. God's Covenant Word of Salvation Grace is in the New Blood Covenant within His only Begotten Son, Christ Jesus. God is Love, for while we were yet sinners, He gave His only begotten Son, so that whosoever believes upon Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
However, we see today, the divided churches that are drunk in the vanity of their own worldliness. (See Ecclesiastes 5 verse 10.) Now stumbling together in the same stupor, these churches fall into one pile of false liberty, loudly proclaiming that their god is a god of unconditional love, whereby, anything its rebellious children do is right in their god's eyes. (See Isaiah 5 verse 20.) In this absentminded church, there is no daily denial of self and the taking up of the cross. Therefore, this church of confusion takes the Word of God out of context, manipulating scripture to their own worldly interpretations that dismisses any accountability for the self satisfying sins committed by its double minded people who proudly sit in their Sunday pews. (Consider Romans 6 verse 1 thru 6.) Can there be any wonder as to who this vile malevolent deceiver is that appeals to the vanity of man kind? (See Romans 6 verse 16 thru 18.) Yes, it is Satan! But, the Only, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty, the Creator of the universe is not mocked with the slight of hand of a sinful church that loves to be mired deeply into the wide open pant pockets of this dark world of violence. (Consider the false preachers in 2nd Peter 2 verse 18 thru 22.) In these linked Scriptures, Peter ends his sharp rebuke with: For it had been better for them not to have known the Way of Righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn (away) 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. (See The Words of the Sower.)
Now, if the reader has viewed the previous highlighted Scriptures, then what is the fullness of that form of doctrine?: It is Father God Almighty's Word and not My Doctrine, says the Lord Jesus Christ. If you love Me, (then) you will obey what I Command. (John 14 verse 15.) Those that love the Lord will, with their humility and Thanksgiving obedience to His Sanctifying Words of His Grace, be made free in their conscience from their current sins of the flesh, and able to worship the Almighty God in Spirit and Truth. The Truth makes the repentant believer free to live in God's Grace through His Spirit in Christ Jesus, and thereby live in the imputed Righteousness of the Word of God Almighty? (See 2nd Timothy 3 verse 16 thru 17 and Psalm 25 verse 14 thru 15.)
I AM the Good Shepherd, and I know My sheep, and I AM known of Mine. As the Father knows Me, even so, I know the Father, and I lay down My Life for My Sheep. (See John 10 verse 1 thru 18.) I AM the Door, and no one comes to the Father, but by Me. Think beyond the vanity within the human mind of flesh, and now begin to reason with the Gift of the Mind of the One Spirit of the Living God Almighty that raised His Holy One from the dead! (See John 14 verse 6 thru 10.)
The Grace of God is unmerited, for Almighty God's Grace works through His Spirit of Holiness, and is extended to repentant sinners who are called to the Lord in humility. The Sanctifying Grace of the Spirit of the Almighty God provides to His redeemed, the covering refinements of His Love and Mercy that is in the Body and Blood of His Holy Son, Jesus Christ. Blessed are they whose iniquity is forgiven, and whose sins are covered. (Selah.) The Spirit of the Love of God encourages faithful believers in Christ Jesus to acknowledge in humility the sinfulness in their flesh. Then with thanksgiving for His unmerited Love and Mercy, they might rejoice in receiving Christ's Living Communion Offering of His Body with His Life giving Blood for the Sanctification of our natural being. When a person genuinely admits and relinquishes their current sins of their flesh to their Savior, Jesus Christ, then the Spirit of God, Who is One with the Blood of Jesus Christ is faithful and just to cleanse the sin, with the Spirit's Life giving Communion Blood of Jesus Christ. The guilt within the conscience of the saved is assuaged with the balm of the Spirit of God's Love and Grace. The righteousness that is in the righteous life giving blood of Christ Jesus will cleanse the believer from their unrighteousness. (See 1st John 1 verse 7 thru 10.) Those who say otherwise are standing on sifting sand and not on the solid Rock of the Word of the Holy Spirit of Yahweh God Almighty. (See Matthew 7 verse 25 thru 27.) For God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have communion/fellowship/koinonia with Him, and walk in darkness, we are liars, and do not follow the Truth (Jesus Christ).
The other manuscript is titled "The Beginnings of the Mystery of Iniquity", which presents an understanding of the Scriptures dealing with the mystery of iniquitous sin with its corruption into death. This book will address the satanic warfare that has been taking place against God Almighty, and against the Sanctity of His WORD of Salvation given for the redemption of lost mankind. In its fullness, this book will also begin to answer hard questions that will expose some of the vain viewpoints that are perpetuated from behind self manufactured pulpits. Of course, heretical view points are seen in the Eyes of God Almighty, and He will repay. So then the end purpose of the two principle manuscripts is to reveal God's Eternal Light in His Scripted Word, and answer tough, controversial questions that reveal the churches' ignorance of the Infinite WORD of God Almighty. This book, "The Beginnings of the Mystery of Iniquity", deals with the Satanic warfare that continually persecutes humanity and assails the WORD of God. For this cause, the Almighty exalts His WORD of Truth even above His Holy Name that is blasphemed in the thoughts, words and deeds of supposed intelligent beings.
The two following books, seen below, are important for the reader, but all of the other enclosed manuscripts, when scrutinized in whole, will produce a greater clarity to humanity's profound need for Almighty God's Great Salvation Gift of His Holy Spirit within the Christ of God. The Body of Christ Jesus is One, and the confusion of the enemy does not reign in the Truth of God. Has the church of the full Gospel failed to present God's full Gospel Covenant to the people of the pews?

The risen Christ Jesus said
to His disciples: Thus it is written and thus it behooved Christ to suffer and
to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins
should be preached in His Name. (Luke
24 verse 46 thru 47.)
of Vital Importance:
The writings presents a synoptic understanding of the Letter to the Hebrews and shows conclusively where scripture is taken out of context that breeds confusion leading to heretical posturing. The Letter to the Hebrews is speaking to the new Jewish converts who are vacillating in their understanding of Christianity to the point of a return to the animal sacrifices in the Mosaic Covenant. Reevaluating the Letter to the Hebrews will dispel the false notions that are taken out of context to satisfy the vanity of our human nature. The reader will discover why the Ecclesia's Communion Life in the Body and Cleansing Blood of Jesus Christ is dismissed as insignificant and unnecessary by many churches. With Communion's dismissal in the Life of the the people of Holy God, then God's Way of His Holy Spirit of the Truth and the Life of men, is also dismissed as irrelevant to the fallible mind of religious philosophers. The idolatrous flesh of man remains a contradictory presence, even in the Face of God's Salvation Gift of Life. Woe to those who make the Truth of God a lie. (See Revelation 21 verse 7 thru 8 and verse 27, etc .)
The perfection of God's Word does not change, but man changes the Almighty God's Infinite Word to justify their ignorance of His Infinite Holiness.
There are twopreparations for the 7 day Jewish Feast of Unleavened Bread. The first preparation was at the beginning of the Passover ordinance on the day of Nisan the 14th with the evening removal of yeast, and then during the daylight hours, there was the slaying of the Passover (meaning the lamb).
The second preparation was for the presentation offering of a gift that God required of all of the men of Israel to bring on the day following the High Sabbath Feast of Nisan the 15th. The presentation offering is a gift by each of the individual men of Israel that is called the Chagigah. Jesus Christ, the true Incarnate Word and genetic Son of Man/Adam, presents Himself to the Almighty God, as the sinless Passover (Lamb) (Chagigah Gift Offering).
Jesus, in the Person of the Word of God, is the True Bread of Heaven, for the Messiah came down form Heaven to die for the sins of the world. Jesus Christ, the Word of God, must fulfill the whole of the heart of the Torah. At His last Seder with His Jewish disciples, Jesus/Yeshua orchestrates God's required Jewish Feast of Unleavened Bread, where He brings to an end the original covenant in the sacrificial blood of animals, and then the Creator of all substance institutes the New Covenant in His Life Blood.
The True Bread of Heaven was crucified to death during the daylight hours of the 1st day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Previously Jesus stated that He, the Son of Man must be in the grave 3 days and 3 nights, and not the religious 2 and a half days.
The Infinite God Almighty, Creator of all things, seeing His
creation of time from its beginning to
its end, would not have selected from the Julian calendar the day of December
25th, for the birth of His Only Begotten Son. The day was a pagan
holiday of Rome
called Dies Natalis Solis Invicti. You can not sugar coat the myriad of pagan traditions
and trappings of this world of sin and death, by calling it Christmas, and make it palatable to the Mouth of
the Almighty God of the Living.
1: Israel's Feast day of Shavuot, first marked the birth of the nation of Israel.
2: In God's Time, Shavuot would mark the physical birth of Jesus Christ,
the First Born of the Eternal God. Thou art My Son: On this day
have I begotten Thee. (See Psalm 2 verse 6 thru 7 and Hebrews 1 verse 5.)
3: Then, in fulfillment to God's Word, the Feast of Pentecost/Shavuot
is celebrated as the First Fruit birthday of the Messiah's Ecclesia/Church,
with the Almighty giving His Holy Spirit of Grace to His people of
new born Faith in Christ Jesus.

The Rapture Fallacy is Pierced thru with the Cutting Edge of the
Come let us reason together; and together we will investigate the unfailing Truth of the WORD of God through the Spirit of Prophecy. If you have been taught and/or teach of an early rapture with a painless escape from the wrath to come, then you will need to reevaluate the WORDs of our Lord Jesus Christ and His servant Paul. Primarily, you should know for a certainty that it is impossible for the apostle Paul, a bond servant of his Lord Jesus Christ, to contradict the Prophetic WORD of his Master, for the Truth is Jesus Christ, and No lie is of the Truth. (Consider 1st John 2 verse 21, and 2nd Corinthians 13 verse 8.) Secondly, the tribulation wrath is that of Satan and the reaping of the consequences of sin itself.
The specific WORDs of Jesus, the Christ of God with us, (Emmanuel), which are written in the 24th Chapter of the Gospel of Matthew, Luke 21 and Mark 13, all reveal the same sequential events that will happen from that day of Christ's prophetic WORD until the end of days. We will attempt to present God's Salvation timeline within the 24th Chapter of Matthew, and will set in appropriate places, "the many clarifying Scriptures", which are layered also within the writings of the Book of Revelation. Again, the WORDs of Jesus Christ stands for ever: For the Testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy, and God's WORD from the Lord's Christ does not fail in one jot or tittle of the Law and the Prophets. The Truth will prevail in all time. For reproof click on the Premature Rapture Heresy.
The unseen soul within the blood of man, is the natural force that is the life of man. At Baptism, by the Spirit of Yahweh the God of the Living, our dead souls are reborn by God's Spirit of Life. Many pastors ignorantly proclaim that animals do not have souls. In spite of this parroting teaching, the reader will see that the soul is also God's definitive unseen identity of the natural life force within the blood of all breathing creatures in God's creation. The wise reader will come away with a vital understanding of why the soul of man must be born again by Holy God's Spirit of Life.
For the Life of the Flesh is in the Blood.
Infinity will forever leave the finite mind of man stumbling over the unfathomable: For the Almighty with His Word of Truth, created all things, visible and invisible. Therefore the incomprehensible Infinite God Almighty declares through His Eternal Word of Truth that; The secret things (that is the unknowable of the Infinite) belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed, belong to us and our children forever. (See Deuteronomy 29 verse 29.)
The Infinity link presents a short synopsis of the Word of Salvation for the uninformed and the lost in me, myself and I.

Tsunami of Sin's Returning Judgment
On February 1, 2015, it was revealed in a visionary dream that a Tsunami of man's sins of violence is coming in its full force, and its beginning judgments are already being seen within what consensus Christianity calls the church. (See 1st Peter 4 verse 15 thru 19.) The Lord Jesus Christ has called His Church/Ecclesia to be light in the world and separated from the violence of sin. But tragically the church, which is to be light in a dark world, has recessed into the shadows of that darkness, with its double minded conformity in league with this sinful world of violence. Do you not know that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Therefore, whosoever will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God. (James 4 verse 4.)
This Tsunami is the return flow of man's violence of sin, and will try the faith of the many, as well as the self centered mindset of this dark world that perpetuates the violence of sin. We reap what we sow. Perhaps, when reviewed, the above Tsunami dream can be dismissed as a night fantasy without relevance to warning judgments from the unseen Creator God of the universe. If the people will not hear and repent, then the heavens and the earth will always hear the voice of the Lord and respond to His Righteous Word. For the skeptical, the cumulative warning signs are even now being witnessed in the physical world today and have been seen in the heavens above.
The sorrows of sin in this world, reaps a flood of tears.
: A great earthquake under or near the seas creates every Tsunami, and as in every Tsunami, there is more than one great wave of destruction. The return flow of our own self serving judgments will not cease until the whole world is consumed in its own choices that breeds the disruptive violence of catastrophic sin. This Tsunami speaks of the variable forces of destruction that brings forth the return consequences of mankind's violence of sin. (For behold God's Lips are full of indignation, and His Tongue as a devouring fire; therefore God's Breath, is like an overflowing flood, and the flow of the flood shall reach tothe midst of the neck, and will sift the nations with a sieve of vanity: For there is a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err.) (See Isaiah 30 verse 27 thru 33.) The people of this day, are like any stubborn mule or braying donkey that has a bit in its mouth to be driven by its satanic slave master into the briar bushes and thickets with dreadful consequences. (See 2nd Timothy 2 verse 25 thru 26.)
This universe is of moral substance created by the supremely moral God Almighty of all goodness. However, in the end, the non stop violence of humanity's sins in this world will spring back to judge all of humanity. For know this also, that in the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, being covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy: Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, without self control, savage, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the Power thereof: From such turn away. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the Truth: Men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth. (See 2nd Timothy 3:1-8.)
The above prophetic scripture, when read in its full context within second Timothy chapter 3, will continue to warn the discerning soul of the artificial form of godliness that is present among us: Ever learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth. Men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the Faith. The whole of this scripture is bearing witness to a Corinthian church of impotent flesh, led by men laden with sins of iniquitous unbelief, "Having a form of godliness, but denying the Power Thereof; therefore they are "reprobate concerning the Faith; from such turn away". For they are vain men led by the flesh, who deny the Power of the Holy Spirit of God that would produce true godliness. Therefore, there is no accountability to Holy God from this form of a self serving church that reveals its complicity with the world that perpetuates the violent works of human flesh: Now the deeds of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, moral impurity, promiscuity, idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and anything similar. I have told you before and that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5 verse 19 thru 21.) Who is Paul admonishing and warning again, if not the church of unbelief? (See also 1st Corinthians 6 verse 9 thru 10.)
Sin's unabated contagion within the willful flesh of mankind, even those who say they are Christians, does not end with one act of a man or woman's wickedness, but sin's call once acted upon, has repercussions that have an accumulating affect on offended mankind, and with each shameless offense, the violence breeds the escalation of more violence. Both the unrepented and repented acts of wickedness are continually spread throughout this world of darkness by the prince of darkness: For from the beginning of its existence, sin's corruption continually breeds violence in the flesh of man, and the contagion is spread exponentially among all people of the earth. The escalating dark acts of yesterday are evident in any time period of the today's and of the tomorrow's. Consider the warnings in Hosea 4. So it will be: like people, like priest (of today) ! As well as the warning in 2nd Peter 2 verse 18 thru 22. For the dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
Consequently in the end, Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty, the Righteous Creator and Judge of all things of His creation, will pour out from the cup of His indignation, the overflowing return of the just rewards accumulated by the self indulgent creatures of human flesh. Those overflowing rewards of sin, will be harvested by the people of the world, even according to their own chosen ways. (See Psalm 11 Verse 5 thru 7, and Psalm 75 verse 7 thru 9.) In the end, Life and death shall hang in the balance of choice. The cup of God's indignation is full to the brim and has been overflowing in judgment of the nations. Is this now the time when the Righteous Almighty God of His universe will turn His Hand of leveraged protection, and pour out of the cup of indignation, the full force of the wicked violence of this world of darkness? (See Revelation 14 verse 6 thru 7.) Time is running out of time: For the wrathful power of sin, Satan, with his horror of wickedness, will come and fully wreak his havoc upon this darkened world of iniquity. Even as it shall be, the Only Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of the Living, and the enemy of death, will continual to give Witness to the sinner of His Infinite Righteous Power that also bares His patient warnings that calls for people's repentance from the corruptive power of sin, and their full turn toward the Almighty's mercy by submiting to the Grace of His Spirit of Life within Christ Jesus.
For there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars, and upon the earth distress of nations, in bewilderment and perplexity: with the sea and the waves roaring: Men's hearts will be failing them for fear, looking after those things which are coming on the earth: For the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (See Luke 21:25-26.)
Holy God Almighty is the God of the Living, and not the god of the dead!
All that hate the Wisdom of the Only Eternal Almighty Lord God of the living, love death and shall be consumed in their choice. (See Proverbs 8 verse 35 thru 36.) The choosing of the only God of the Living, the Creator of all things, should be the order of every beginning day.
The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who
can know it? I the Lord search the
heart, I try the heart of the mind, even to give every man according to
his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah

Nine Eleven, 2001
Night Vision - Warnings of Whirlwinds of Judgment.
In these writings, there are two prophetic night visions that give warnings of coming Judgment, against the sins of the United States. The events of Nine Eleven were prophetically visualized in night dreams in December of 1999, 21 months before the twin towers came down in complete destruction on the morning of September 11th, 2001.
This catastrophic event was a warning to the U.S.A., and the whirlwinds in the dreams are a continuing harbinger of God's judgment against this nation's wickedness, and will remain an effectual testament to the world during the many perilous days that follow. Humanity, with its self serving idolatry, can not serve both God and your own greed (mammon) at the same time ... you will either love the one and will hate the other. (See Revelation 3 verse 14 thru 20.) Any tower that man builds to magnify his stature, God will destroy.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: For the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (See Luke 21:25-27.)
In this article we will present evidence that
the Lord Jesus Christ celebrated the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the
eating of the Passover on the
evening of a Blood Moon. Later
in the morning of that 5th day of the week, Jesus was judged and then He
was crucified at mid-day of that same day. During the crucifixion
and the death of Jesus the Christ of God, there was a miraculous total
eclipse of the sun that took place, and darkness covered the land. An
impossibility that the two heavenly events took place on the same day?
Remarkably, the series of
tetrad warning Blood Moons and solar eclipses have occurred during a 68
year period, and is now approaching 70 years since Israel declared its self a
nation in 1948, and was first recognized as such by the United States in 1949,
and then recognition by some other nations.

A total eclipse of the Sun will be seen crossing the whole of the United States on August 21, 2017. From the west to the east darkness will pass over the land.
