A Vision of This Ministry
Seen on 27 June 2001
At about 8.30 a.m. on the morning of Wednesday 27 June 2001, I was shown an intense vision by Yahweh. This was the first (and at that time only) such vision that I, or anyone else, had seen about this HEM ministry, though we have had hundreds of similar manifestations about the wider ministry of NCM and NCCG. So this is rather special, both for myself and for those of us who are labouring to spread the word of HEM Patriarchy and Polygamy.
I found myself standing in the centre of an immense bonfire. All around me were flames but I could neither feel the heat nor was I burned in any way. The fire seemed to grow more intense by the second so that in moments the red and yellow flames gave way to a roaring white heat. The heat was so intense that at times it was hard to see. I could not see what the fuel of the fire was because it seemed to be burning me in some way. And yet I was not consumed but, to the contrary, seemed to flourish in it.
After a very short while I discerned a ring of what appeared to be bales of hay lined up in a circle around the centre of the fire such that they were actually touching the fire. And yet they, too, were not consumed, even though this was the most combustible of organic material. Indeed, after a while they seemed to actually be in the fire, but still they did not burn. It was then I noticed that what I was looking at was not bales of hay but tightly packed bundles of wheat. There were many of them, all arranged in a ring around and actually within the white hot fire. After no more than about ½ minute, the vision ended as suddenly as it had begun.
There wasn't the slightest doubt in my mind as to the meaning of this experience - it all seemed so crystal clear. Our God Yahweh, the source of all we are as believers, is a "consuming fire" (Heb.12:29). Fire is a scriptural metaphor both of purification as well as of judgment. The bundles of wheat are the gathered and separated saints at the last day before Yah'shua (Jesus) returns.
Yahweh showed me something interesting afterwards as I searched the Scriptures to get confirmation and further understanding about this vision:
"Then Eleazar the priest said to the men of war who had gone to the battle, "This is the ordinance of the law which Yahweh commanded Moses: Only the gold, the silver, the bronze, the iron, the tin, and the lead, everything that can endure fire, you shall put through the fire, and it shall be clean; and it shall be purified with the water of purification. But all that cannot endure fire you shall put through water. And you shall wash your clothes on the seventh day and be clean, and afterward you may come into the camp"" (Num 31:21-24, NKJV).
We are told throughout the Bible, and especially in the New Testament, that we must be baptized (fully immersed) in both water and fire (Mt.3:11; Mk.1:8; Lk.3:16) in order to be fully acceptable and clean before Yahweh our Heavenly Father. Whilst water can only clean the outer man, fire (the Ruach haQodesh or Holy Spirit) is what cleans the inner man. Water baptism is a symbol of fire or Spirit baptism.
But there is another element to this cleansing that should not be overlooked and which the text in Numbers brings out, namely, that only metals like gold and silver can be purified by fire, whetheras other less resilient materials like cloth cannot.
Speaking of the last days, Yahweh said through the prophet Malachi:
"But who can endure the day of His coming?
And who can stand when He appears?
For He is like a refiner's fire
And like launderer's soap.
He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver;
He will purify the sons of Levi,
And purge them as gold and silver,
That they may offer to Yahweh
An offering in righteousness" (Mal 3:2-3, NKJV)
The sons of Levi were the priestly class under the Old Covenant but under the New it consists of all those who are true believers (1 Pet.2:9) and who are making their calling and election sure (2 Pet.1:10; Phil.2:12).
Water baptism, which is enjoined upon all new believers upon profession of their faith, represents the 'alpha' or beginning of our faith in Christ. Fire baptism must therefore represent (at least on one level) the 'omega' or final stage when all the dross is burned out of us and we are completely pure.
A distinction needs here to be made between jurisdictional (legal) and personal (actual) salvation and purification. Whereas we are covered by the blood of Christ and are, from Yahweh's point-of-view, clean and sinless, from the moment we accept Yah'shua (Jesus) as Lord and Saviour, this continued covering, and our ultimate right to partake of the Tree of Life, is always conditional upon our walking in the commandments through His grace (undeserved loving kindness). The definition of end-time (and indeed, all true) Christians is this obedience coupled with faith in Christ (see Rev.22:14; 14:12; 12:17, etc.):
"Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of Elohim (God) and the faith of Yah'shua (Jesus)" (Rev 14:11-12, NKJV).
Although these things shouldn't need to be said, and although such scriptures shouldn't need to be cited to Christians, in my experience there is so much carelessness in terms of discipleship and such poor schooling in the Word of God generally, that we must. For many are today being deceived by watered-down gospels that teach nothing more than the 'water' stage of purification whilst liberally talking about the fire they think they have but which, by their works, they betray their complete lack of (Jas.2:18).
There is therefore a major difference between jurisdictional salvation (initial and continuing salvation by grace) and the salvation which comes about through active discipleship, which implies throughout the Word complete and utter obedience to, and reliance on, Yahweh our Father through Yah'shua (Jesus) His Son. Those who rely only upon the water of grace for their cleansing, and refuse to be obedient to the commandments (and so fail to demonstrate their love for Christ through their works - Jn.14:15), cannot pass through the fire of purification which will perfect them and entitle them to their full reward. "But all that cannot endure fire you shall put through water" (Num.31:23) .
The evidence of fire baptism is not, as some claim, the manifestation of a particular gift such as tongues (irrespective of whether this is the true article or just a fake), but a complete and full life in Christ that is the reward of commandment-keepers.
The reason (or at least one of the main reasons) why Patriarchy and Polygamy are so disliked amongst the modern Christians is not so much because they have been brought up in false Greco-Roman tradition which handicaps their vision of the Christian life (though it is a factor), but because they do not want to be obedient disciples. As the HEM website demonstrates conclusively, patriarchy and polygamy are an integral part of the Gospel of Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) and their practice evidence not just of obedience but (because it is firmly linked to it) salvation as well.
What this doesn't mean is that you have to be married polygamously to be saved (or indeed married at all). Rather, if a false doctrine is being taught about patriarchy and marriage (defined biblically as one man married to one or more women), then souls are going to be waylaid in their discipleship and risk being spiritually shipwrecked. Where it becomes a salvational issue, as is made clear elsewhere on this site, is where women are denied plural marriage because of the Greco-Roman monogamy-only mindframe and who are thereby forced (because there are so many more godly women than men in the end-time Church/Messianic Community) to marry unbelievers in order to fulfil the creation mandate to Adam and Eve, and so risk losing their own salvation - and that of their children - under the inevitable pressures that follow from being married to pagans.
The "Priesthood of all Believers" is not, moreover, conferred in its fullness upon the profession of faith any more than a new convert, who receives a calling to be a Pastor from Yahweh, is immediately ordained to be one (1 Tim.5:22). Time, training, spiritual maturity and apostolic acceptance are first required. More likely, a new convert will not even be aware of such a calling but only as he matures but will serve in other capacities beforehand. Our giftedness is not immediately made known to us but often comes only as the result of the development of other gifts.
As we grow in Christ we similarly become aware of sin-areas in our life which, though jurisdictionally taken care of by Christ by virtue of His death on the cross, have not yet been taken care of in our actual lives and still require repentance and working-out. This becomes much harder if we are not being obedient. A person who relies on cheap grace and thinks he will be repeatedly pardoned for wilful, habitual sin will, in the process of time, experience a withdrawl of the Ruach (Spirit) and an end of grace, because he is knowingly rejecting the source of his salvation. He is avoiding the fire and relying only on his water baptism (assuming he has even been obedient to that commandment - many are not) to provide him free passage to heaven.
The whole concept of Patriarchy implies a code of behaviour on the part of husband and wives in marriage and of the saints in the local fellowship or congregation. It does not imply a relation based only on feelings or the "Spirit" (how conveniently the two are confused). Polygamy, as this website shows, is an intimate expression of the relationship between the saved and their Saviour, and reflects back on the marriage relationship. It implies a process of perfection which can only come about through progressive spiritual burning.
There are no New Covenant Levites in the sense of there being a separate "class" of ministers because under this covenant everyone is called to be a minister in his or her own area or call. There is no Priesthood-Layman divide as may be found in many churches (assemblies) today because everyone is a minister. This does not mean, of course, that everyone has the same office. Like Archippus we are to "take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it" (Col 4:17-18, NKJV).
Like any job in any walk of life, it requires labour and perfection. There is a continual learning process. To do it well requires that one goes about it in the right fashion. A friend of mine was recently telling me about a gardner she employed who was very skilled indeed but never did what she told him. In the end she had to fire him. As disciples and ministers of Christ, we too must be sure that we do things in the right away and according to instructions otherwise our skills, however brilliant, will be of no avail. Obedience is here clearly seen to be the condition of heavenly approval.
There are many wonderful Christians doing great things in the Name of Christ but who stubbornly refuse to admit either patriarchy or polygamy. They will, at the last day, be "fired" too:
"Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'" (Matt 7:22-23, NKJV)
There you see the condemnation from the Master's own mouth - lawlessness. A person who rejects one part of the Gospel because he does not like it, or because it runs contrary to pet (yet false) beliefs, which rubs against the grain of tradition, is herein declared to be "lawless" - one who is not subject to Law, one who will not obey the commandments.
Like no other Gospel principle, Patriarchy and Polygamy separate out the lawless from the law-abiding believers. Indeed, they pretty clearly demark many of those who are true believers and those who are believers in name only.
It is a wonderful thing when a man gives of his life energy to be a diligent pastor, or an evangelist, or a deacon, or whatever - or when a woman gives of her life energy to be a good wife to her husband and mother to her children - but if both stubbornly and rebelliously refuse to acknowledge Yahweh's clearly stated rules about headship (patriarchy) and polygamy because they do not "like" them, what does that tell us about such people in terms of obedience?
Nobody pretends that the Gospel is all smooth-running. There is a cross to be carried, but it is not as hard as it seems. Yah'shua (Jesus) tells us that He has done the hard bit for us (praise the Lord!) and the rest is "light" in comparison: "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light" (Matt 11:30, NKJV). For men and women steeped in liberalism and feminism, patriarchy and polygamy seem like nightmares from the past. But they are wrong. These gospel principles, like all the others, are liberating, because they are the truth: "and the truth shall make you free" (Jn.8:32, NKJV).
I believe - and this vision confirms it to me - that the reason Yahweh is restoring polygamy at this "late hour" in the Church's (Messianic Community's) history is because it is going to be one of the principle means of sifting the obedient from the disobedient, the true believers from the false ones, the true from the dishonest, and the submissive from the rebellious. It is, admittedly, only one of those principles being restored but it is nonetheless a key one.
There was no pain or fear in that fire, just as there is no pain or fear in the place where Elohim (God) lives, which is also fire. Ordinary clothes burn up in such an environment - you need to be made of sterner stuff ... of gold or silver. The issue then boils down to this: Are you (men) sons of Levi, properly submitted to Yahweh, walking in your priestly office in fear and trembling? And are you (women) the wives of the sons of Levi, properly submitted to your husbands, walking in your priestly office in fear and trembling? And are you both willing to have all your false ideas and notions about Christ fully burned out, and will you walk in His commandments as He says you must to be acceptable to Him? Or do you merit the label, "lawless one"? Did you know that the Antichrist is called "the lawless one" (2 Thes.2:8ff, NKJV)? And did you know that rebelling against any category of Yahweh's Law makes you an antichrist - one who opposes the plan of Christ? (1 Jn.2:18; 2 Jn.1:7) Did you know that you can be faithful in everything except one thing Yahweh has said and become, as a result, faithless in all? (Jas.2:10) God forbid that you should throw away so precious a salvation because you resisted His demand that you be obedient in all!
You Christian women who cannot find godly monogamist men, go and find godly polygamist Christian patriarchs and place yourself under their covering, and raise up a godly offspring like the patriarchs and their wives of old! You men, who have been shying away from your calling to be patriarchs, or who have been approaching the calling with false motives, get your act together and become a son of Levi! Do it now!
It is my unshakable testimony that those who oppose patriarchy and polygamy (even if they are not called to practice the latter) are opposing Christ and His salvation. They are placing themselves amongst the lawless of the earth who will be burned up at the last day. The message of Patriarchal Marriage is no quaint "appendage" to the Gospel for a few cranky Christians who ought to be satisfied with the monogamous way of life but is an integral part of the whole Christian/Messianic way of life. Even if you are not called to practice polygamy yourself (it's only for a small minority of those with leadership ability), you should be enthusiastically proclaiming it from the housetops because of its spiritual integrity with living a life in Christ. Patriarchal Christianity is Christianity!
Whatever you may feel about such a bold statement, you at least owe it to yourself to study this website carefully and find out the truth of the matter. What you will read here will undoubtedly shake you up, man or woman. The issue has little or nothing to do with sex but with the whole fabric and tavnith (pattern) of creation. The issue is a correct vision of the message and life of the Lord Yah'shua (Jesus). Life is marriage, and marriage is life, and that life is polygamous. There are no singles and there is no such thing as "monogamy-only". There are only those who are waiting to be married and those who may find themselves in families with one or more wives.
Will you go through just the water or will you go through the fire too? Will you have a quiet bathe on the outside or will you let Yahweh-Elohim, the Lord God Almighty, burn and purify you from the inside out? What exactly do you want from eternity? Will you take everything that your Father in Heaven has to offer you or will you refuse it and settle for 100th best? What do you imagine this life is actually about? Why are you here? Is it just to make some passive confession of faith or is it to discover and live life to the very fullest?
If it is your desire to have Yahweh unfold your life to its fullest potential and lead you to a place where you may possess complete joy, happiness, peace and satisfaction, then you have got to work for it, and let Him clean you out.
As you will discover on this site I have come to some pretty radical conclusions about this life and the next one from my study of Scripture and my personal encounters with Yahweh through living polygamy. My conclusion, which I think you will find persuasive if you believe the Bible 100% and are open to all the light and truth that is within its hallowed pages, is that in heaven there is nothing but polygamy! Most Christians think they're going to be singles there because they have not understood Yahweh's wonderful plan for His children.
May you, the reader, be blessed by this website. Please have Bible in hand and a good Hebrew-Greek lexicon because you will need them. Please also be prepared to "unlearn" much of what has been taught you which is not biblical. With this thought in mind, it is my prayer - and the prayer of my wives, and the prayer of those who are in this ministry, that you will enjoy a feast of fat things (Is.25:6) and have the "surface of the covering cast over all people" pierced and thrown off so that you may see the truth in crystal clarity:
The Lord of love bless you all.
"And in this mountain
Yahweh of hosts will make for all people
A feast of choice pieces,
A feast of wines on the lees,
Of fat things full of marrow,
Of well-refined wines on the lees.
And He will destroy on this mountain
The surface of the covering cast over all people,
And the veil that is spread over all nations.
He will swallow up death forever,
And Yahweh-Elohim will wipe away tears from all faces;
The rebuke of His people
He will take away from all the earth;
For Yahweh has spoken"
(Isa 25:6-8, NKJV).
