“And I looked, and lo a Lamb stood on Mount Zion and with Him an hundred and forty and four thousand having His Father’s name written in their foreheads” 4 …These were redeemed from among men, being the first fruits unto God and to the Lamb,” Rev.14:1-5.
As stated before, we can see clearly that the telling of ‘lies’ is not just words but a ‘nature,’ that which is natural and the characteristic of certain beings. So to say the devil does not stand in the truth simply means its foundation is not on the Word of God. Now the Word of God is the nature of God, which is the reality of life (John. 1:1; 6:63), the foundation-Rock that we are standing upon (1Cor. 3:11; Matt. 7:24-27).
Telling us that anything outside of the Word of God is satanic and destructive. Hence, the devil is a murderer from the beginning because his nature is opposed to that of God.
He destroyed Adam and Eve by communicating to them his own nature (Gen. 2:17). They got deluded by believing into the fantasies of the devil in their soul. They got into wrong imaginations outside of the truth that was revealed to them by God that they should not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
In other words, do not try to be double minded, be singled eyed unto me, receive of my life and live by it. So to hear God and to be doing something else is death. For you cannot excel in either realm, for none becomes a foundation.
What are we saying? To say that the 144,000 have no lies in their mouth simply means they have been able to overcome the influence of the beastly-serpent. They are no longer influenced by its nature. They have been able to overcome the power of sin and death. For “by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Rom. 5:12).
And so here in Mount Zion, we see the overcomers of the impurities of the Adamic nature standing before the lamb in glorious ecstasy with the new song of the redeemed.
A NEW NATURE FOR A NEW PEOPLE IN MOUNT ZION
I want to declare to you that what we are talking about is possible in this flesh. It is not when you get to heaven, but as you live your life here on earth. You can be free from the deception of Adam in your soul realm; and so overcome all that is called death as you come to Mount Zion, the church of the living God.
Even as the Word says,
“And there shall in no wise enter into it (the city of God, new Jerusalem, the Church) anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life,” Rev. 21:27.
By implication only those who have received the incorruptible seed of the nature of tile Lamb are the ones qualified to be in the City of God.
But why do Christians still tell lies and die? you may ask. Because there are ‘sinners in Zion’ who are fearful and hypocrites (Isa. 33:14), telling us that what those outside of the Kingdom receive is still their portion. For “outside the city (of God) are those who strayed away from God, and the sorcerers and the immoral and murderers and idolater, and ALL WHO LOVE TO LIE and do so,” Rev. 22:15 TLB.
Do you see what I am saying? There are a thousand and one Christians who are still involved in living after the life of the old man, which is deceptive and destructive, the enticing world all around them. The only way you can survive is to live after the power of the life of Christ within.( Col 3:1-5) For that which is external is deceptive and imaginary and has no reality (1John 2:17).
