Michael Jackson Justice: 2017

God: Reconnect to Him

The Conspiracy against God is about "The Word", and the profaning of His Holy Name within us. Adam fell in the garden, breaking the direct connection to God. Jesus, the "last Adam" was a quickening Spirit, the Word made Flesh, and the only one with whom we can re-establish our relationship with God. Michael's story is still unfolding. He is the one who is, is not. But Jesus is the only name given under heaven by which we must be saved. Many are trying to rewrite HIStory. We were given a help to instruct us. Learn more "here".

In One Body


Spirit in the Flesh





And he spake to them a parable; behold, the fig tree, and all the trees;  when they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.   So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, Ye know that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.

Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.   Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.


His words shall not pass away.  Are his words in you?

We are in the last time.  That’s what Peter said when he still walked in flesh.  This is what John said in his first letter; and that is what Paul said to the churches, after he was chosen to bear His Name.

To “bear His Name”:  It should now be familiar to you what this means.

The “angel” who “goes before thee” in Exodus would not forgive their transgressions if they provoked him because “My Name is in him”, said the Lord to the exiled Israelites in the wilderness.

Saul was shown by Samuel “the Word of God”, which according to He who sits on the throne in Revelation 19:13 is “His Name”.

Ezekiel, called “son of man” by the Lord, was told to “lie on thy left side” for “the iniquities of Israel” 390 days; and “lay on thy right side” for “the iniquities of Judah” for forty days.  His exact words were to “lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it”.  So then the lawgiver, Judah: “for forty days and for forty nights, the law was on her side”.

Jesus, the only begotten son of God, pure in word and Spirit, was “given a name above all names” through the inheritance:  He was the shepherd, the “stone of Israel” which stone was engraved by God, made of a woman, made under the law so he could redeem us from the law.

Paul who was once “Saul” was chosen by Jesus to “bear My Name” on the road to Damascus, after which, when he was blinded, was taken to the house of Judas, on the street called Straight, in Damascus.  There he prayed for three days eating and drinking nothing; and Ananias was sent to restore his sight.  Paul then sequestered himself for three years, learning from no man, but through the Holy Ghost the truth in the scriptures.

Other prophets were chosen throughout the history of man to bear “His Name” as they were “shown the Word”, which David loved because that Name “is pure”.

The days of the “man of sin” are here.  He has yet to come out of obscurity, where he was once in fame before he who letteth was taken out of the way.  The covenant was revealed in the parable of Psalms.  In witness of the whole world, his sanctuary was polluted, his face and form marred more than the sons of men in a vessel that would bear the iniquity and the spots of a plague in the walls.

Jesus is quoted in both Matthew and Mark on his stressing the point of the last days, when men would be deceived by the twisting of scriptures.  Here, regarding the wicked who stands in the Holy Place, in a place where he ought not, Jesus cautions us to understand the prophecies of Daniel.



Daniel’s Beast

Daniel was a young man in his youth during the Babylonian exile.  Nebuchadnezzar, chosen by God to bear the nobles of Israel, favored Daniel.  Daniel escaped death in the lion’s den, endured the treachery of the envious, and was shown the visions of the end times probably in more detail than any other prophet aside from Ezekiel and John the apostle.

Daniel is also the one who refused to eat the king’s food, and asked instead for fresh vegetables and fruit for he and his three friends.  This reflected their observance of the “law and ordinances” in the “Book of the Law”, spoken of in Leviticus.

It was through Daniel’s interpretations of Nebuchadnezzar’s dreams that the foreshadowing of the years of the beast was recorded, in Daniel chapter four.  Not only did the “seven times” that Nebuchadnezzar lived as a “beast” symbolize the “week” in Daniel 9:27; but we know this is the time of the “beast” because Daniel 4:31-33, Psalms 106:20 and Romans 1:25 specifically associate the “Ox” with what happened to the Law or the truth of God in it, and Daniel’s “beast in the field” eating grass.

The “beast” and the “Ox” are associated directly with each other a total of seven times in the King James scriptures.  That is an interesting number considering the seven times tribulation in Daniel and the seven years of the “beast”: both Nebuchadnezzar’s curse, and the last days.

We know that the “truth of God” was changed “into a lie”, and that “they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox”.  Tracing the changes in the language since Eliakim requested the Syrian language through the Babylonian exile, we know that the “Taw/Tau” was the Ox, and that the “violence” they’ve done to the law was to the Aleph, which now resembles a modified “X”: exactly what the Phoenician “Taw” used to be.

The Aleph now resembles the Taw, and the “Taw” now looks almost like an exact duplicate of the “Cheth/Heth”, the eighth letter meaning “fence, room, chamber” or “to protect”.  Tav/Taw means “mark, sign, or cross”.

We now have the letter of the Beast, and we have the “mark” associated with it.  Jesus endured the cross, and defeated the enmity thereby.  Remember that Jesus said “the prince of this world commeth, and he hath nothing in me.”  This has not changed.  Jesus suffered the “death of the cross”, “bearing his cross”, “enduring the cross”.  The cross of Christ is the cross of “offense” = Taw; and also the “power of God” = Aleph.

The “Tau/Taw/Tav” is the “mark of the beast” (the ‘X’).

Revelation 7:3 and 9:4 reminds us that the 144,000 which are the elect are sealed on their foreheads; and Revelation 14:1 and 22:4 tells us that this “sign” or “seal” is the Name of God; and the Name of God is represented by the “Aleph”: the “beginning and the end” of “Abba”, the Father.

This letter was at one time the “Y” but is now on it’s “left side” for the “iniquities of Israel”: “XY” = “Taw/Aleph”, because “God made man to be upright”, and “what was written was upright” – Even words of truth, which they changed into a lie to worship and serve the creature.

Abba is the “greater love that hath no man”, and the Aleph represents the breath of God/Life.

Abba is four-letter palindromic word.  The corrupted YHVH when correctly pronounced with it’s true letters (right to left: Cheth, Beit, Cheth, Aleph/Ayin) sounds like “uhb-ha”.   The word for “Love of Christ” in Syriac is translated into English as “ḣubba”.

The “Ox” has haunted Israel since their transgression in the wilderness when Moses was on the mount.  They forged a “calf” of gold as in image to their God, but it was the image of the one they worshipped in Egypt.

This also reflects the corruption of Laban’s herds and flocks in Genesis 30:35-42 by Jacob, in toying with the “Book of the Law”, transgressing it in Laban’s herds to “weaken” them.

Because of this there were twelve oxen in the temple Solomon built, which held the brazen sea: one for each tribe of Israel.  When Solomon left God, the temple was ransacked and destroyed.  The Ark of the Covenant went “missing” as it was supposed, and not mentioned again until Paul in his letter to the Hebrews.

Between Solomon’s temple and the ministry of Jesus, the Holy One of Israel and our Redeemer, the Book of the Law was found.  The wall was repaired and a house was built.  But the house was built with unclean hands.

Now we are in the times of the people of the prince, spoken of in the prophecies of Daniel.  Here is why Jesus saidhe who readeth, let him understand”.



Michael and Shiloh



Shiloh is mentioned in the blessing of Judah given by Jacob to all his sons in Genesis 49.   From Judah, he said, would the scepter not depart, “nor a lawgiver from between his feet until Shiloh come, and to him shall the gathering of the people be”.  This is an end times prophecy for Judah, not just for the time of Jacob’s life.

During the period of the Judges, both Shiloh and Micah are mentioned.  Micah is a prophet with his own book in the minor prophets of the Old Testament. 

And in the opening of the Book of Micah:

For the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good: but evil came down from the Lord unto the gate of Jerusalem.  O thou in habitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast: she is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.   Therefore shalt thou give presents to Moreshethgath: the houses of Achzib shall be a lie to the Kings of Israel.

The “beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion” and “the houses” shall “be a lie”.

This reminded me of Eve.

Micah reveals part of the mystery of the “remnant” of Israel, and the “daughter” that “travails to bring forth” for which the “beginning of sin” was bound to the chariot; the “first lie” in the garden.  Micah also reveals the “travail” of the daughter of Zion, which is the other “mother” with the wings of a stork in Zechariah 5.

Now gather thyself in troops, O daughter of troops: he hath laid siege against us:  they shall smite the judge of Israel with a rod upon the cheek.

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from old, from everlasting.   Therefore he will give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forthThen the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the Lord, in the majesty of the Name of the Lord his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.

This passage is about the daughter of Zion and the man child, when he “stands” to feed in the strength of the Lord; to the end of the chapter .  The daughter of Zion brings him forth before her travail; and gives birth before her pains came mentioned in Isaiah 66:6-8

There is a reason that the daughter of Zion and the “beginning of sin” is mentioned in the book of Micah.  According to the scriptures, the daughter of Zion and the woman in Revelation 12 bring forth the “man child”.  Michael withholds the dragon from entering the Kingdom of God after the man child is caught up to God and to his throne.

The name “Micah” means almost identically the same as “Michael” . . . without the “El”:  Micah means “Who is like the Lord”; and Michael, “Who is like God”?  Micah gains the “El” as the “Archangel”; and the “Ark” is a vessel for the “Name of the Lord”.  Micah and Michael:  Two tabernacles, one within the other.

We know this because the “Ark of the Covenant” and the “Prince of the Covenant” are the same “safebox” for the “Word”, and “His Name is called The Word of God”: therefore the “Archangel” is also the “house for the Name of the Lord”, which is Bethlehem; and Ephrata, which is the same as the City of David; and Zion.

The same “safebox” was in my dream, encased in brick facing the outside of the three story house where I found the secret chamber with the ladder and two filing cabinets.  And when I laid on the ladder in the center, I knew I would not be seen and would be safe.

The story of Micah foreshadows also the setting up of the abomination of desolation.  Judges 18 records the event of the setting of an image of Micah in the House of God, which is in Shiloh.  Shiloh becomes desolate and is cited as an example in Psalms 78:60 and Jeremiah.



By both David and the prophet Jeremiah, the house of Shiloh was forsaken by the Lord, because of the idols that Israel set in the house of God.  David said:

For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their carved images.   When God heard this, he was furious, and greatly abhorred Israel, so that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent he had placed among men,   And delivered his strength into captivity, and His glory into the enemy’s hand.

Raise your hands if you believe that the “tent placed among men” is a pole and cloth, material tent similar to what the Boy Scouts camp in.  Remember our entry on “Shiloh”: the name Shiloh means “he whose right it is”; which is mentioned in Ezekiel 21:27.

Jeremiah’s reminder echoes the same:

But now go to my place which was in Shiloh, where I set my Name at the first, and see what I did to it because of the wickedness of my people Israel.   And now, because ye have done all these works, says the Lord, and I spoke to you, rising up early and speaking, but you did not hear, and I called you, but you did not answer,

Therefore I will do to the house which is called by My Name, in which you trust, and to this place which I gave to you and your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.

to head the words of my servants the prophets whom I sent to you, both rising up early and sending them (but you have not headed),   Then I will make this house like Shiloh, and I will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth”.

But that is not the end of Shiloh, because the prophecy of the gathering of the people to Shiloh had yet to happen; and don’t forget, God will restore Israel and Shiloh will be used to do it.  God said he would make “this city a curse to all the nations of the earth”.

The “curse” goes forth over the whole earth in Zechariah 5:1-4.  And who redeems us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us?  Galatians 3:13 – Jesus.

The “curse” was written into the “Book of the Law” (Deuteronomy 29:21) just as the blessing was written into the “Book of the Law” (Joshua 8:34).  Righteousness would manifest the blessing, and transgressing the law would manifest the curses or plagues of the law as a natural consequence.

Also remember that God turned the curse into a blessing (Deuteronomy 23:5; Nehemiah 13:2).

This would be the very reason that the Ark of the Covenant would be built; in which the “Book of the Law” would be placed: in the side of it, which would be a witness against us because it was the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord our God.

In the story of “Independence Day”, a “virus” was uploaded to the mother ship.  When activated the virus spread to all the other ships and took them all down. 

Thus saith the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; for your sake I have sent to Babylon, and have brought down all their nobles, and the Chaldeans, whose cry is in their ships.

This is not far from what will happen with the curse that goes forth over the whole earth.

Micah, Michael and the daughter of Zion are intricately connected to the chief cornerstone. 

Understand: Jesus overthrew the tables in the temple: and the first shall be last and the last, first (Mark 10:31).

The serpent was the father of the lie.  It was Eve who the serpent deceived into cursing herself.  The enmity was brought forth between the serpent and the woman; and it is here where he will make his last stand.

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure.



The Middle Wall



Do you know what the “enmity” is? 

What is the “seed of the woman”?  Why was the woman’s seed specifically called out after the transgression in the garden, but not the seed of Adam?

“Enmity” is between the serpent and the woman; and between her seed and the serpent’s seed.  Why is Adam’s seed not mentioned?  So the enmity in all came from the woman.

There are eight mentions of the word “enmity” in the King James Bible.  It is mentioned first in Genesis 3:15, where God puts enmity between the serpent and the woman, and between it’s seed and her seed which bruises it’s head; and his seed bruises the heel of the woman’s seed.

In Luke 23:12, the enmity between Herod and Pilate was eliminated the same day Pilate sent Jesus to Herod.  In Romans 8:7, Paul tells us that the carnal mind is enmity against God.  Ephesians 2:15-16, Jesus abolishes the enmity and in James 4:4 we are told that friendship with the world is enmity with God.

The “enmity” is abolished in Christ.  Jesus abolishes the enmity and breaks down the middle wall of partition between us.  The enmity and the “middle wall” are the same.  It is the veil of the covering, the “stumblingstone” which is the “chief of the cornerstone” to all who believe in him: this is in Zion.  This is the “covenant” God made between Himself and Abram, who became Abra-/h/-am.

Before I found any of this in scripture to test my dreams, I had the dreams.  In a room I had to crawl into, to get to Christ who was waiting for me to find him, was a wall.  After he held me and told me “keep the faith and keep your eyes on me”, He proceeded to drift back from me until my reaching hands hit a flat surface.  I could still see him beyond the wall as he continued to say to me “Keep the faith and keep your eyes on me” until the wall became opaque and I could no longer see through it.

The deceivers are out there in force.  They stalk and direct conversation away from things they don’t want you to know.  Against scripture they have no defense, so they instead accuse you of being deceived.  Once they reveal themselves by the fruit of their actions, you are no longer addressing them; but others among them that have the love of the truth in their hearts.

1 Thessalonians 4:13 reveals that “the Lord himself shall descend with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God” at the time of the gathering of the elect.  They are one.  There IS no other way to interpret it, it says what it says.  If it meant something different it would say it that way.

God is one”.  The scriptures declare this.

Jesus prayed in Gethsemane that those that God would give him would “be one, as we are one”.

Paul reveals that we are made one in Christ; so to assume that the angels (aside from those that fell), are not one with God is a contradiction of scripture.  Even in the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, he said to those he created “let us make man in our image”:  Not because there were other gods, but because the angels were “one” with Him.  There was no enmity before the temptation of Eve.

John also reveals that when we are called up, “we shall be like him for we will see him as he is”, and Jesus  said we “will be like the angels”.

Reminded of this fact evident in the scriptures, remember that in Daniel 12:1 Michael stands; and there will be a time of trouble upon the earth like there has never been since there was a nation also reiterated by Jesus himself in Matthew 24:21.  And at that time shall all of God’s children be delivered, everyone that is written in the book.

Jesus is not mentioned here, because Jesus and Michael are the same.

In Daniel 10:21 we are reminded to know that which is written in the scripture of truth: that the only one that holds with the angel of the Lord is “Michael, your prince”, because in Zechariah 4 and Revelation 11, he is one of the two “faithful witnesses” that are the anointed cherubs through which the Word of the Lord comes.

In Jude 1:9 Michael is identified as the only one mentioned by name as the “Archangel”, and he withholds the devil from the body of Moses.  Jesus is not mentioned here because Jesus and Michael are the same.

And in Revelation 12, the war in heaven takes place after the man child, whom the dragon sought to devour, is caught up to God and to his throne.  Jesus is not mentioned here either, because Michael and Jesus are the same. The scriptures are inarguable: Ark of Covenant

Remember: the “witnesses” who are the “olive trees” in Revelation 11 and Zechariah 4 are “the Word of the Lord” to Zerubbabel.  They are one with the angels of the seven churches by pipes emptying the golden oil out of themselves to the bowl, the candlestick and the seven lamps.

Remember also: That the mercyseat, the cherubim (the anointed cherubim/witnesses) and the veil of the covering are all of one piece on the “Ark of the Covenant of the Lord your God”.  These things did Moses make in the earth, in the pattern of the things in heaven.

Angels, Arch or otherwise, are also “vessels for the Spirit of God”.  They are sent to you, in His Name; just as they came to Lot; just as they came to Moses in the burning bush; just as they came to Daniel; just as they came to Jesus to minister to him in the wilderness of temptation and just as they came to Paul and many other prophets and saints.

In Revelation 21:17, the angels shows John the measuring of the city of God, that it was “four-square”, one hundred and forty-four cubits in “the measure of a man, that is, of the angel”.

There are many that will refute you, either out of treachery (for they are sent by those who know, but shut up the kingdom from men) or out of ignorance; (because they were indoctrinated by the writings of the early infiltrators into what have become corporate churches).  However, they cannot do this using scripture.

Those that are “in Christ” are one with Him.  If you believe you can be one with Christ; then there is no reason to disbelieve that the angels already are one with God, if we are indeed to be like them in the resurrection.

Jesus was the Word made flesh and the Word is God.  We are made one with him through faith in his blood.  We are vessels: hosts for the Spirit of God.  We are called by “His Name” which is “the Word of God”.  Understand this, and you will understand how Jesus was “made to be sin for us, who knew no sin”, and has “redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.”

The “man of sin” in 2 Thessalonians 2 is the vessel/host once inhabited by “what withholdeth”.

The “beast that was, is not yet is” in Revelation 17 is the same vessel of the man child, the “prince” in Daniel 12.  The polluting of the sanctuary of the prince of the covenant, the placing of the abomination that maketh desolate, and the cleansing of the sanctuary whom the Lord will “consume with the Spirit of his mouth, and destroy with the brightness of his coming” takes place in one man.  And the scriptures declare that as well:

Paul to the Ephesians:

But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were afar off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.   For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;  

Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;   and that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby.

Reconciled unto God in one body, by the cross: the “beast” and the “ox” and the “cross”: The Taw becomes the Aleph as the kingdoms of the earth become the kingdoms of God.

Moses said of this “middle wall” of partition:

The Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb.   The Lord made not this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even us, who are all of us here alive today.   The Lord talked with you face to face in the mount out of the midst of the fire,

(I stood between the Lord and you at that time, to shew you the word of the Lord: for ye were afraid by reason of the fire, and went not up into the mount;) saying, I am the Lord thy God, which brought ye out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.”

They were afraid by reason of the fire.  We are refined by the fire: We are baptized not just by water, but by the Holy Ghost and fire.

Moses stood between the Lord and the Israelites at the time, to show them “the Word of the Lord”; just as God made a “covenant between me and thee” to Abraham (stone of stumbling), the “H”/h/ and what would be the chief corner stone or “head of the corner” in Zion.

Michael – “I’m gonna be exactly what you’re gonna see . . . Am I the beast you visualized . . .”, lyrics to, “Is it Scary

Michael is the vessel in which the salvation of our God will be witnessed.  His soul is not upright in him, but the just shall live by his faith.

It is by grace are ye saved, through faith, not the law.  The seed of Abraham was through the righteousness of faith, not the law.

Jesus said to Mary Magdeline “touch me not, for I have not yet ascended unto my father.”

The iniquity will be consumed.  I witnessed the brightness disintegrate the iniquity before I was blinded. 

Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.   Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned:  therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.   Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:  I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore I will bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

One body, One man in Zechariah 1:4 and 2 Thessalonians 2:8:  The beast that was, is not yet is in the vessel of he who was taken out of the way: caught up to God and to his throne, so that evil is revealed.

Therefore, wait until the man of sin is revealed and do not go after him as Jesus warned in Matthew 24 and Mark 13. Not until after the tribulation of those days: the time of trouble like there never was since there was a nation spoken of by Daniel the prophet.  And you will know it when it is here:

And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.

The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.

If one is fortunate, they will have cross their path once in their lifetime, someone who shows them the Word of God, as Samuel showed Saul the Word of God.   That someone for me was Michael, surnamed Jackson.  It was a prayer answered the moment before I prayed it.  I will never, ever forget it nor will I cease being thankful for such a blessing.

It is also a historically established pattern that the majority of the people are predisposed to deny your testimony based on what they have been taught to “know” about the Word of God.  It is these very people whom we are called to counsel.

If you could for one moment discard the kings and merchants of the earth, your “need” for them and the trappings of this world; you might get a glimpse of a man whose soul is separate from what was completely constructed for purposes that are not wholesome. Seems like “the world” had a role for him.

What Michael was, was innocent.  What they will try to reconstruct him as will involve the body but not the soul, for that was caught up.  What he will be . . . is “written in the book”.

I know who Michael lived for; He was an anointed witness for Christ, and he witnessed in Word and in deed.  You remember this when you see someone else standing in a sanctuary once inhabited by him: the man of sin.  “I just want you to recognize me in the temple”, he sang in “JAM” (Jesus, Abba, Michael): 1 Thessalonians 4:13.  It’s in HIS-tory.  And it’s “in the Book”.

Also remember, the “flesh profiteth nothing”.



The flesh profiteth nothing.   But they will try to establish their vision using the sanctuary of the “prince”, but it will fail.  And that is also “in the book”.

Because Ye Know the Truth


The Last Game
No Lie is of the Truth





Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.   And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.  

Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.   They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us:  but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.   I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.”

From across the table, one facing the other, their eyes stood firm to one another in invisible challenge:  the Baron and the girl.

It was the same table, holding the same offering, and the same pawns in the same game:  He had all the answers to questions she had already asked.

He asked her to “choose” but the table had already been turned.  It was the last game.

They had both played before for different stakes, in a different time, wearing different clothing and bearing different names.

She looked at the board, familiar with the pieces.  The conclusion would be different, and she wasn’t afraid.  She knew what was in the house.

“Should we flip for the first move?” said the Baron to her.

She glanced at the board, then again met his eyes.  What she was waiting for wasn’t there, but it would be.  How she did in the game would be key.  “It doesn’t matter” she replied, “the first move is your choice”.

With a hard glint of amusement he asked, “Do you remember the rules?”

“It’s been a long time” she said, “but I remember each one”; and she recited them as she pointed them out.

He bore down on her with a level stare, “I know your fears” he said to her.

She regarded him a long moment but said nothing.  What she feared he had no power to control.  She thought to reply but said nothing.  She met his gaze with an open expression.

His eyes remained on her.  Intimidation mingled with loathing had no effect on her.  Despite the contempt he felt, he couldn’t completely hate her and he didn’t know why.  The standoff continued.

“You know this is the last game?”  He asked her.

“Mmm-hmm” she replied, “I’ve been waiting”.

He smiled.  It was not a pleasant gesture.  “This time it is different.  You lose the game, you lose your life.”

She looked up into his face.  This time she smiled and it was genuine.  “It’s the same lie, isn’t it?  Please” she said, with a sweep of her arm.

After a long pause, he lowered his eyes from her face to the board.  He reached and moved the first pawn.

She saw the move, glanced the board over for a moment, and then moved one of hers.

After each move, his eyes met her face.  For once he couldn’t read her.  Her face revealed nothing: no fear, no ego, not even what he would consider confidence.  So open was her expression, he could read nothing.

The game continued.  Each took pieces of the other.  The clearing of the board was slow but steady on each side.

She was good; he was better.  He had been playing for a long time and she was just warming up.

During a brief pause, the prince wondered the point of the game.  She was going to lose.  He already knew this.  Why was she even playing?  Where was her fear?

“Your life, miss congeniality; miss ‘fight for the truth’, Did you think I was joking?”

She looked up at him.  She already knew how it was going to turn out.  “You know the house doesn’t always win.”

He smiled, “I expected more from you” he said, “I can’t imagine you would throw the game now”.

She took a breath of impatience and held it.  What she wanted to say was kept from her lips.  She was told.  The vision was sure.  She knew what to do.

He leaned across the table, resting on both arms to lean into her face, “play the game like your life depends on it, miss!”

He didn’t know that she would. 

She moved.  He moved.  This was a charade he started.  He knew she knew it. She continued the play, without anger, without battle.

She looked at the board.  There were only two possible moves left.  She looked up at him and said,

“Don’t you remember?  You made the first move.  The result is going to be the same regardless.”  His face for once, was blank.  She continued,

“Remember . . . please, it’s your turn”.

He pulled back and looked at the board.  He wanted to savor the moment.  He searched her face.  The only emotion he could find in it was peace and it enraged him.

He moved his piece.

She stared at the board for what seemed like eternity.  This was it.  She didn’t expect the struggle but she knew where it came from and her faith shut it down.

She slowly looked up into his face.   He waited.

She moved.

They stood across the table from one another; neither of them conceding to lower their eyes.  His face was afire with vainglory and gloating, but in her peace it had no power.

She said quietly, “And he said, my kingdom is not of this world . . .”

He again leaned over the table, slowly.  He brought his nose within inches of hers.  He titled his head slightly, boring into her with his eyes, “check . . . mate”.

She didn’t move.  There was no fear.  She could see her own image reflecting back at her in his eyes.  She said, “there are no walls in the game of Chess, did you notice that?”

He stood up, crossed his arms over his chest, “It is finished”.

She smiled without malice, for she knew she had been fulfilled, “Don’t you remember?  That’s what you said before they pierced you . . .”

Her voice was fading toward the last words of her sentence.  A split second of dread he felt when he realized the point of the game. 

Her words were the last thing he heard before The Light came through the roof of the house.  Then he remembered . . . 

I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.  

Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?  He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.  

Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.

These things I have written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you:  but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth,  and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
