X. The Church coming out of the Dark Ages
        When reviewing Church History unto our present day, it can be clearly seen that God was revealing 
        to Luther (1517 AD / Reformation) the first, of seven principles of the doctrine of Christ 
        This study compares them to the seven locks of Samson's hair, before it was cut off 
(Judges.16:19). This
       first principle 
(beginning / rule)
 was "repentance from dead works, and of faith towards God.Luther
        preached this truth and
rejected the authority of the Pope and the selling of indulgences (temporary
        pardons) for sin. Luther taught that we have forgiveness of sin only through Christ's blood 
(Rom.3:24; 5:1,
 He taught that theBible is the sole source of Christian truth and denied that the priests had
        any more power than that of the layman 

A. Repentance from dead works and faith towards God (Heb.6:1) 

              Our works are "dead works" because before being "born again" we were "dead in trespasses and

              sin" which makes all our own efforts "dead works" (Eph.2:1, Col.1:23, Heb.9:14, Isa.64:6 / 

               Heb.9:13, 2Cor.6:17, Lev.5:2).

The first lock of hair. This is Justification in the redeeming, (1Cor.6:20, 1Peter.1:18-19 [Num.31:50,
sinless blood of Christ our Passover (1Cor.5:7-8, Rom.1:17, Hab.2:4, Eph.2:8-9). This
              truth had vanished in the spiritual decline of the Church by 350 AD. (Review: IVX, N) This was not an 
            "accidental find", 
that Luther stumbled across. It was the Sovereign hand of God because the "natural
              man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he
them, because they are spiritually discerned"
(1Cor.2:14 / 1Cor.1:20-29, Rom.8:7).It was the 
              deliberate (purposeful, intentional) hand of God upon Luther proven according to the
              God's divine nature 
(1Peter.1:4) cannot be denied (2Tim.2:13). He cannot deny His patterns!

  1. This truth compares with the Feast of Passover
                   Passover was a "beginning of months"
(Exod.12:1-2) for the "Church in the wilderness" (Acts.7:38).
                   It was God "calling out" a people for His Name. The "Reformation" was a calling out from the Church
                   of the "dark ages" (the Church of the spiritual decline), the Roman Catholic Church.

    2. However men built Denominations around this "present truth"(1Pet.1:12)
                   Denominations that formed out of this restored truth were the
Lutheran, Episcopal and
Presbyterian Churches.


Note: During this time Erasmus (1516 AD) had placed the Word of God back into the Greek, eliminating the corruption of
                  Clement, Origen, Eusebius and Jerome from the 2nd. and 3rd. century. (Review: Phase 1) The Catholic Counter-Reformation 
                  movement often condemned Erasmus as having "laid the egg that hatched the Reformation."

                  Compare the period of time from Wycliffe, Erasmus, Luther and Tyndale with the Church at Sardis,
(Rev.3:1-6) and the
                  Parable of the treasure in the field. (Matt.13:44)
        When Luther saw that the "Just shall live by faith," it was like Samson being released from the "prison
        house" of the  "dark ages." However Samson's eyes had been "put out" (The people of that era were Bible  
        illiterate. i.e. ignorant, uninformed, untaught. Note:
2Pet.1:9) This caused the Philistines to be confident that  
        Samson (the Reformation) was no threat. This caused the Philistines / religion,
 to make "sport" (i.e. mocked) 
        Samson / the "Reformation
 (Judges.16:25, Judges.16:23-25). This is evident in the Council of Trent (1546 AD) 
when the Roman Catholic Church declared that Jerome's Revised Latin Vulgate was the Word of God, and 
        rejected the Greek Text of Erasmus, and the truth of the of "Just shall live by faith."
(Review: Phase.1, Page.2,
VII) This making sport (or mocking) has continued unto our present day. 

             Note this recent "mocking" statement by the head of the Roman Catholic Church. (The Church of the spiritual decline and dark  
              ages. "Pope Benedict XVI released the primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document...that says other Christian       
              communities are either defective or not true churches and Catholicism provides the only true path to salvation." (USA, Oregon
              Register-Guard INTERNATIONAL Wednesday, July 11, 2007 AD. p.A14)

​           What they (the Philistines / the Church of the "dark ages") did not realize was that God had purposed to
           use Samson / His Church in spite of his short comings 
(Judges.13:1-5, Eph.3:1-12, Heb.6:16, 2Tim.2:13,
            Num.23:19, Jam.1:17).
 They failed to see that his hair (his separation unto God, his strength (Num.6:1-12)  
was growing back!

XI. The Anabaptists (approx.1522-1800's AD?)

The second lock of Samson's hair. This truth was lost to the Church in the 2nd century and replaced
          (cut off) with infant baptism by the Roman Catholic Church. Infant baptism was
 practiced by the

          Lutheran, Episcopal and Presbyterian Churches. The Anabaptists / The re-baptizers came along approx.

           1522-1800's AD? Now the Spirit of God was calling out a people from a people and opening

          their understanding (1Cor.2:1-14, Luke.24:44-45, Heb.13:8, John.16:15) to the truth of Water Baptism

          by immersion (Matt.28:19, Acts.2:38, 8:37-38; Acts.10:47; 19:5). This was according to the  blueprint

          Jesus said, "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: (found in the pattern of

         God's Word) for they shall be filled" (Matt 5:6). The Spirit of God will "guide" them "into all truth"

         (John.16:13, 1Cor.2:1-14). 
The Red Sea was next in the "ensample" (type / pattern / model)

​       A. The doctrine of Baptisms (Water Baptism)                
1. This compares with the "Red Sea" in the blueprint
                     Moreover, "brethren, would not that ye should be ignorant, (of the "ensample" i.e. type
                     how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized
                     unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea"
(1 Cor 10:1-3).
                   a. Note the faithfulness of God to His pattern ("ensample")

                         There is no variableness, (not double minded) neither shadow of turning"
(James 1:17-18) with
                         God. Even "If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself"
(2 Tim 2:13). He
                         CANNOT deny His patterns! It is His "divine nature"
(2Peter.1:4). When we "hunger and thirst" after God, He
                         will only draw "nigh" /near
 (Jam.4:8) unto us according
                         to His patterns because this is His "divine nature." This
                         is why Water Baptism was the next restored truth,
                         because it was next in the pattern.

  b. The Red sea buried the old life 
                         When we are Water Baptized we are "buried with him by
                         baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from
                         the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also
                         should walk in newness of life. For if we have been
                         planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be
                         also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man (i.e. Egypt) 
[41] is crucified
                         with Him, (Passover
1Cor.5:7-8) that the body of sin might be destroyed, (the "Egyptians whom ye
                         have seen today, ye shall see them again no more forever"
Exod.14:13) that henceforth we should
                         not serve sin"
(Rom 6:4-7).

                2. Denominations that formed around this truth
                    Out of this restored truth came, the
Baptist, Methodist, Evangelicals, Church of God and the Christian 
Missionary Alliance. (Note: There are many splinter groups that developed also) However God was
                   not finished
 building according to the pattern. The pattern calls for entering into the land and 
                    the building of Solomon's Temple, where the Church in the wilderness would would "move no more."
(Gen.12:1; 15:13-21, Deut.12:1-12, 1Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19, 2Chron.5:1-14, Ezk.10:18, John.2:18-20,
​                      Matt.17:1-5; 23:36, 1Cor.6:19-20, Eph.2:20-22).

    a. Now there is a division

Two groups (camps) that have developed in the
                         restoration of the Church. (The "called out ones") 
There are those that accepted "Justification by faith,"
                         and another group / camp, which accept "Justification
                        by faith and Water Baptism
 by immersion." The
                         "Justification by faith camp" fought against the 
                         "Justification and Water Baptism camp" just as the 
                         Catholic camp fought against Luther. 

​                  b. There is still more according to the "ensample"

                         In the "ensample" (1Cor.10:1-11 /blueprint) Israel was
                         brought out of Egypt, to be brought into the Land
(Deut.6:23).  The Red Sea was not the end of Israel's
                         journey, and neither is the truth of Water Baptism!
                         There is the "mark for the prize of the high calling of
                         God in Christ Jesus,"
(Phil.3:1-14) the fulfillment of the Land, to the ultimate purpose, Solomon's
(Gen.12:1; 15:1-21, Deut,12:1-12, 1Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19, 2Chron.5:1-14, Ezk.10:18, Matt.23:36,
                           John.2:18-20, Matt.17:1-5, Eph.1:22-23, Eph.2:20-22).


                              Note:For the next three centuries(1500's -1800's AD)there were two Bibles. The Roman Catholic Bible which
                              comes from the Revised Latin Vulgate of Jerome's, and the Protestant Bible which comes from the Greek Text of Erasmus.
                              (The Textus Receptus, the text of the Reformation, the text that the restoration of the Church was based on) Review
Phase 1

                              Compare this period of time(1500-1800's AD) with the Church at Philadelphia, (Rev.3:7-13) and the Parable of the Pearl
                              of Great Price. (Matt.13:45-46)

XII. Next: The Pentecostal Movement  (approx.1900's-70's?)
            This is seen in the  Blueprint of the "church in the wilderness" 
(Acts.7:38). The Law, with

            the Tabernacle, Priesthood, and the Offerings (Exod.25-40, Lev.1-27, Note: Exod.6:1-3) was the next

            new "present truth in God's Purpose for Israel. Note: Up to this time there was "no  law" written

            on "tables of stone" (Rom.5:13-14; 7:7-14). In 1906 AD God restored the Church according to this

            same  Blueprint. Up to this time the focus was on the "present truth" of Justification by faith

            (Luther / Deliverance from Egypt) and Water Baptism (Anabaptists / The Red Sea). Now the Spirit of

            God was leading (John.16:13) the Church into the realities of "the righteousness of the law,"

            (Rom 8:3-4) "written on the fleshly tables of the hearts" (2Cor.3:1-18, Note: v.3, Heb.8:10; 10:15,

            This was the beginning of a new phase of God's plan in the "ensample" (type) and in the reality.
            Note: This new phase / division / present truth, carried "the Church in the wilderness" until the time of
            David, who was inspired by God to prepare

         A. The doctrine of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and the Pentecostal move

The third lock of Samson's hair. In the next century, in a place called Azusa St. in the U.S.A., 

                   there were people that began to hunger and thirsted after righteousness (Matt.5:6, John.7:37-38). God
                   honored their hunger 
(Matt.5:6, John.7:37) of drawing "nigh" (Jam.4:8) unto Him according to His 
                   pattern, His "divine nature" (
2Pet.1:4). He poured out His Spirit upon them as He did at Pentecost
(Acts.2:1) and restored this truth which included the Gifts of the Spirit and the structure of the
                   Church. (The Body of Christ, the "espoused"/ engaged Bride to be 
(2Cor.11:3, 1Cor.12:1-31). 

                   In 1906 AD a "national and international expansion...resulted from the Azusa Street revival ...at the
                   Apostolic Faith Gospel Mission...312 Azusa Street in Los Angeles...This building on Azusa Street became
                   a great spiritual center that for many years attracted rich and poor, blacks and whites, Anglos and 
                   Latinos, as well as many preachers whose own ministry had become staid"
[4]  (Note:
Gal.3:28, Col.3:11,
​                     Acts.10:34

1. This compares with "Mt. Sinai"in the  blueprint
                        The "day of Pentecost"
(Acts.2:1) took place 50 days after Passover. (Review: Page.1, V. A-B)
                        in the "upper room"
(Acts.1:13; 2:12) at Jerusalem which is compared to "mount Sinai" (Gal.4:25).
                        This is yet another confirmation that the Spirit of God is restoring the Church according to the
                        "ensample" (type 
[1]) of the "Church in the wilderness." (Acts.7:38, 1Cor.10:11)

                   2. Denominations that formed out of this visitation
​                        Out of this restored truth are the
Assembly of God, Pentecostal Holiness, The Four
Square Churches and the United Pentecostal Churches. (Note: There are many splinter groups
                        that developed also)

  3. This makes even more divisions as the Church is restored
                         These divisions in the Church were not the purpose of God, His purpose was that everyone
                         would move on as the Spirit of God moved. The division came by those who rejected the visitation /
(Acts.3:19-24) of God and stayed behind. Paul's prayer was that, "you all speak the same
                         thing, (the Word of God / His patterns) and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be
                         perfectly joined together in the same mind
(2Cor.10:5) and in the same judgment" (1 Cor 1:10-11).
                         His plan NEVER included denominations!His plan is to "bring us out" of the bondage of sin
                         (Egypt / Dark Ages) and "bring us in"
(Heb.3:7-19; 4:1-11 Review: Page.1, VII) to His ultimate Purpose.
                         (The promised Land and to Solomon's Temple 
(Heb.4:1-11, Eph.2:20-22).Review: Page.1, III.E

     a. To Summarize the divisions of the Reformation 

                         Jesus said He would bring division (Matt.10:34-39, 2Cor.15-17) His presence causes
                           people to reject or except His visitation. Remember: The Church in the wilderness
                           was NOT to stop at Mt. Sinai, (The "Present Truth of the Pentecostal movement) because
                           they had not reached "the place" (Solomon's Temple  
Deut.12:1-12) where they would be
                           planted and "more no more"

  God was not finished restoring His Church!  
There have been three locks of Samson's hair restored. (Justification by Faith,
                           Water Baptism and The Holy Spirit Baptism) There remains four more locks.


B. Next: The doctrine of the "Laying on of hands"
The fourth lock of Samson's hair. The "doctrine of laying on of hands" was realized in Canada 
               (1948 AD.)
[43]by another group of God's people, that "hungered and thirsted after righteousness"  
(Matt.5:6). With this came the understanding of the apostolic and prophetic ministries 
and their vital
               role in the last day Church. This time has been refered to as the "Latter Rain" movement.

1. It is the "doctrine of Christ" (who is "the same...today")Heb.13:8
                    Paul (who was taught by Jesus
Gal.1:11-12) told Timothy to "Neglect
                   not the gift that is in thee, which
 was given thee by prophecy,
                   with the laying on of hands of the presbytery
(1Tim.4:14). The 
                    "Laying on of hands" imparts,
(Lev.16:21, Acts.19:6) identifies, (Deut.
                      34:19, Acts.6:1-7)
consecrates, (Num.8:12, Acts.13:3) and sets members
                    in the Body of Christ as it pleases God.
(1Cor.12:18, Deut.34:9) It also is
                    used in healing,
(Mark.16:8-20)  for blessing (Matt.19:15) and in being
                    filled with the Holy Ghost 
(Acts.19:6). The restoration of this truth, at
                    this time was the Sovereign hand of God because the "natural man
​                    receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness
                    unto him: neither can know them, because they are spiritually discerned"
(1 Cor 2:14 / 1Cor.1:29,
It was the deliberate, purposeful, intentional hand of God according to the "blueprint", His
                    "divine nature" continuing to work 
(1Peter.1:4). He cannot "deny Himself." (2Tim.2:13)

    a. This compares with Israel being set around the Tab. at Mt. Sinai

                         At Sinai (which compares with Jerusalem / Day of Pentecost / Baptism in the Spirit), Israel ("the
                         church in the wilderness"
Acts.7:38, 1Cor.10:11) was placed / set around the Tabernacle as it  
                         pleased Him 
(Num.1-4, Note: 1Cor.12:18). This placement determined their traveling order and
                         everyday function and prepared them for the journey that would end at Solomon's Temple
(Gen.12:1; 15:1-22, Exod.1-12, Deut.12:1-12, 1Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19).

       b. God was restoring His Church back in preparation for His Bride

                         At Pentecost the first century Church was "set" (Review: Page.1, V.A-B) around the "true
                         Tabernacle that the Lord pitched and not man"
(1Cor.12:18, Num.1-4, 1Cor.10:1-11, Rom.15:43,
                           Heb.8:1-5; 9:1-26). 
This placement determined their traveling order and everyday function and
                         prepared them for the journey that would end at the reality (fulfillment) of Solomon's Temple.
                         (i.e. a "holy temple in the Lord"-
Eph.2:20-22, 4:11-16; 5:21-31, Gen.12:1; 15:1-22, Exod.1-12,
                           Deut.12:1-12, 1Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19) 
This structure / order would be the "present
                         truth" until they came into the land and David's Tabernacle.


​​             2. There have been no denominations formed from this visitation / refreshing
                    However, out of this restored truth there developed independent Churches, (Church Families,
                    Network of Churches etc.) with Christ as the  head (or He should be head) of each of these Churches
(Eph.1:22-23, Col.1:18).  

                    According to the
blueprint  our generation is now living in the reality (fulfillment) from Sinai until
                    the time of David's Tabernacle, from 1906-20?? 
AD.(Review: Phase.2 Page.1) This is why there is  
                    no History written yet in our Encyclopedia's or an History book, because we are presently living this
                    portion of the 

                    Note: Sinai was NOT the end of the journey! God was NOT
                    finished leading Israel.
(Deut.6:23) God is a finisher (Luke.14:25-33)
Phil.1:6, Eph.5:21-33)!

                    While this restoration was taking place (i.e. Samson hair being
Judges.16:22-30 Review: Page.2, IX) the Philistines
                    (i.e. Man's wisdom, intellect flesh, philosophies of man) "mocked"
                    Samson / the Church thinking they had the upper hand.

 C. There was a new thing / transition that was about to happen!
               Since 1906 AD the "present truth"  
(2Peter.1:12) of Pentecostalism (Sinai) carried the Church for the
               next 60-70 years (?). This was illustrated in the 
blueprint by the "Church in the wilderness" after they left
               Sinai until the time of king David 
(Num.10:13 - 1Chron.13). When David became king, he ushered in a new
             present truth
[44]. This was the "Tabernacle of David(1Chron.28:19).

                Note: Up to this point the Ark of the Covenant was only available to the high priest once a year, but now
                it is being made available by king David in time of need.

This was the  NEW present truth! 
(Review: Page.1, I-IX)This would stretch everyone of the the "Sinai / Tabernacle of Moses movement"
                of David's time, just as it did for the Pentecostal movement. (1906-70's AD approx.?) This NEW present
                truth was the "Charismatic Movement" This was where God poured out His Spirit on the Denomin-
                ations of the Church world, making His presence available to those outside of the Pentecostal 
                movement. (i.e. The Sinai movement) 

                Unfortunately this visitation went the way of all previous moves rather than "coming out from 
(2Cor.6:14-18) the denominations, people stayed and mixed in the Charismatic visitation with the
                "philosophy...vain deceit and the tradition of men" 
(Col.2:8) and made the Word of God of "none effect"
 (Matt.15:6,9).  God's intention was to incorporate the truths of Pentecost with the new present truth,
                not to go backwards and put new wine into old wine skins. 

   1. In the "ensample" (or the blueprint / model) 
                                David did not ignore or do away with the Tabernacle of Moses, the Offerings or the Priesthood
(1Chron.13:3-14; 15:1-29, 1Chron.16:37-43; 23:26, 30). It was still needed. The Spirit of God will
                                NEVER deny the previous truth that has been restored from the Reformation until our present
                                day! God always goes from "glory to glory"
(2Cor.3:18). "Line upon line" (Isa.28:9-11).

    2. At this time of "refreshing" came the "pattern" of music and worship
                                David said, "All this (the pattern of worship) the Lord made me understand in writing with His
                                hand upon me"
(1Chron.29:18, 2Chron.29:25-27). This pattern for music and worship in the
                                House of God was the standard from David to the Cross 
(2Chron.5:1; 23:18; 29:25-26; 35:15;
                                  Ezra.3:10; Neh.12:36). 
After the Cross, the apostle Paul confirmed this pattern for the New
                                Testament Church. Paul said he would "sing"
(1Cor.14:26, Eph.5:19, Col.3:16). The Strong's
                                Concordance #5567 says, "to sing" is to twitch or twang, i.e. to play on a stringed instrument, 
                                (celebrate the divine worship with music and accompanying odes): KJV - make melody, sing
 Note: Rev.5:8; 14:2; 15:2 - Harp / Lyre - a plucked string instrument.

                      3. Look at the leading edge of the Church in the last 40+? years
                                This has NEVER been seen in the Church since the Reformation. This matches the pattern
blueprint). The revelation of Worship did NOT come until king David. The only reference to a
                                song was Moses,
(Exod.15:1-21) and Miriam who danced with her timbrel, danced and sang 
(Exod.15:20-22).  There was nothing until David.   

XIII. To Summarize: The Reformation until now
             Almost five hundred years may seem like a long time to restore the Church, compared to our lifespan of
             70 years+
(Psa.90:10). However we must remember that "one day is with the Lord as a thousand years"
(2Peter.3:8, Psa.84:10; 90:4),making our lifespan of seventy plus years (Psa.90:10) about two to

             three hours before the Lord[28b]. No wonder Peter wrote "For all flesh is as grass and all the glory of

             man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away" (1Peter.1:24). Don't

             be as the "scoffers" in Peter's day, who said, "since the fathers fell asleep, (died) all things continue as

             they were from the beginning" (2Peter.3:1-9). They made the mistake of measuring God's "time table" 

             by themselves (2Cor.10:12) and their father's generation. God's "timetable" is far greater than our

             generation or the generations before us. 

​                                                     Seven locks of Samson hair


                1. The first lockof Samson's hair

                       "Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying
                        again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God..."

  a. Martin Luther / Just shall live by faith 1517 AD

                              From this move of God there developed the Lutheran, Episcopal and Presbyterian
                              denominations. Some out of these Churches, stopped here and did not allow the Spirit of God
                              to lead them into all truth concerning the doctrine of Christ 
(Heb.6:1-3, John.16:12, 1Cor.2:9-14).

   b. This compares to all with Israel being set free by the Passover Lamb

                             In the  blueprint  (pattern, model, sketchy outline), God's purpose was not to stop there,
(Gen.12:1; 15:13-21, Exod.1-12, Deut.6:23; 12:1-12, 1Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19) but to come into the 
                             Land promised to Abraham.

    c. At my salvation, I am crucified with Christ my "Passover"(1Cor.5:7-8, Exod.12:1-15)
​                             I am not to stop there! God has a purpose for our lives to conform us to the image of Christ,
   (Rom.8:28-28, Eph.4:11-16)  which is foreshadowed by entering the Land and Solomon's Temple.

      2. The second lock of Samson hair 
                        Therefore "leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying
                        again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine
                    of baptisms..."
(Water Baptism)

a. The Ana-Baptists (The baptizers by immersion) 1522 - 1800's AD
                            From this move of God, there developed the Baptists, Evangelicals, Methodist and Christian
                            Missionary Alliance Churches. Some out of these Churches, stopped here and did not allow the
                            Spirit of God to lead them into all truth concerning the doctrine of Christ 
(Heb.6:1-3, John.16:12,

         b. This compares with the Red Sea
                            In the  blueprint  (pattern, model, sketchy outline), God's purpose was not to stop there,
                              15:13-21, Exod.1-12, Deut.6:23; 12:1-12, 1Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19)
but to come into the Land promised
                            to Abraham.

  c. When I was Water Baptized, I was buried with Christ(Rom.6:1-6)
                            This buried all the old crucified life as the Red Sea did to the Egyptians. This was not the end! 
               There was still more!

              3. The third lock of Samson hair

                      Therefore "leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying
                      again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, of the doctrine of
(Holy Spirit)

  a. The Pentecostal Movement1906 AD
                           From this move of God there developed the Assembly of God Churches, the Pentecostal Holiness,
                           The Four Square Churches. Some have stopped here and not allowed the Spirit of God to lead
                           them into all truth concerning the doctrine of Christ
 (Heb.6:1-3, John.16:12, 1Cor.2:9-14).

    b. This compares with Mt. Sinai             
                           In the blueprint (pattern, model, sketchy outline), God's purpose was not to stop there,
                             15:13-21, Exod.1-12, Deut.6:23; 12:1-12,  1Chron.17:1-15; 22:1-19)
but to come into the Land promised
                           to Abraham.

      c.  When we are Baptized in the Holy Ghost 
​                           I was resurrected with Christ to walk in newness of  life 
(Rom.6:1-6; 8:1-11).  This was still not the
                           end! There is still more!

      4. The fourth lock of Samson hair
                     Therefore "leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying
                     again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
 of the doctrine of
and of laying on of hands...

         a. The Ministries and the laying on of hands / Prophecy / "Latter Rain" Eph.4:11 
                         From this move of God there developed many fellowships, independent local Churches with no
                         Denominational headquarters.

    b. This compares with Israel being around the Tabernacle
                        Some have stopped here and not allowed the Spirit of God to lead them into all truth concerning
                        the doctrine of Christ 
(Heb.6:1-3, John.16:12, 1Cor.2:9-14). 

     c. This is being placed by God in the Body of Christ(1Cor.12:18) 

                                                                     Note: At the same time the truths of Repentance from dead works
                                                                     and faith towards God, the doctrine of Baptisms (Water Baptism
                                                                     and Holy Spirit Baptism) and the Laying on of hands were being
                                                                     restored, the Church of the (spiritual decline and dark ages, the
                                                                     Lord's of the Philistines) were making "sport" (mocking) God's 
                                                                     purpose. (Samson / The Church of the Reformation

​                                                                     The evidence is in the Council of Trent(1546 AD) and the the 
                                                                     introduction of a new Greek Text (1881 AD) to mock the Church of 
                                                                     the Reformation.
(Review Phase 1)

                                                                     Unfortunately some of the "reformation" have "mingled themselves 
                                                                     with the people of those lands..." (Ezra.9:2)  They have not remained
                                                                     separate unto God. They have "turned aside (Judges.14:8) to touch, 
                                                                     taste (Col.2:21) and look upon the vain deceit, philosophy and traditions
                                                                     of men." (Col.2:8)

                                                                     The Church of the "dark ages" failed to recognize this
(i.e. Samson's hair of his separation unto God (
                                                                          Col.2:21, 1Cor.6:15-20, 2Cor.6:14-18)
 was growing back. They failed to
                                                                     recognize that he had been "set...between the pillar...upon which the
                                                                     house of Dagon, (i.e. the god of this world -
2Cor.4:4, 1John.2:16) stood" 

                                                                     (Judges.16:22, Judges.16:26-29). This would eventually bring about their
                                                                     defeat (
Gen.3:15, Col.2:15 , Rom.16:20, Rev.4:1-2; 12:1-17).
               The Church, like Samson shall fulfill it's destiny and overcome and destroy our adversary (Lucifer,
                serpent, devil, Satan) when we come to the end of ourselves.
(Judges.16:28-31)  "So the dead which he
                (Samson) slew at his death (to himself) were more than they which he slew in his life"
(v.30 / Rom.6:1-11) 
                (i.e. When he was alive to himself). The same will be true for the Church. Up to now the restored   
                Church has been like Samson, experiencing a victory here and there, but the affairs of this life entangle
                and are choking
(Matt.13:22) out our spiritual life. (We are like Laodicea - Rev.3:14-22)

                Nevertheless God's Purpose was to use Samson in spite of himself. The same is true for the last  
                day Church 

​                There still remains three more doctrines in the doctrine of Christ. (Heb.6:1-3)

                5. The Resurrection of the dead. The fifth lock of Samson's hair .       
             6. Eternal Judgment. The sixth lock of  Samson's hair and       
             7. Going on to Perfection. The seventh lock of Samson's hair.

                These all have to do with laying down ourselves. Paying the "full price." Taking up our Cross and
                following Christ. Not my will but thine be done". These are all foreshadowed in the "ensample" (type) of
                Solomon's Temple.

                These remaining steps will be fully explained in
