Fields Of The Wood
Its Vision Being Transferred From The Jews To The Gentiles
Is Now Being Written With Gentile Prophecy
And Gentile Ministry On Jerusalem Acres
On July 5, I visited the Arise Shine Marker in Fields of the Wood and, of course, some of the other markers. My purpose was to carefully read the four tables of the written vision -- in the open court -- that contained Paul's statement in regard to transferring the vision from the Jews to the Gentiles.
The Apostle Paul was the only representative for the Gentiles to be placed in the written vision in the Fields of the Wood with his own words written on the tables showing the transference of the Holy Vision from the Jews to the Gentiles. If one will carefully read the tables of the twelve, early apostles, that I searched out of the Scriptures and placed in the Arise Shine Marker, you can see that Fields of the Wood transferred the vision that was the Jews authority to the Gentiles. But in Jerusalem Acres the vision on tables of stone being transferred to the Gentiles is described so that it includes the twelve tribes of the Gentiles and twelve princes (apostles), fulfilling the last Scripture on table number four in the Arise Shine Marker. This is where Paul stated that he laid the foundation and another buildeth thereon. Let us read the Scriptures that are written on the four tables in Fields of the Wood that transfers all the glorious vision from Fields of the Wood to Jerusalem Acres in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Number One - Paul Speaking (The Vision) - "For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jew's religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the Church of God, and wasted it (Galatians 1:13)." "Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the Church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood (Acts 20:28)."
Number Two - Paul Speaking (The Foundation) - "And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone (Ephesians 2:20)." "According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder. I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon (I Corinthians 3:10)."
Number Three - Paul Speaking (Falling Away) - "For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock (Acts 20:29)." "That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled...as that day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first...(II Thessalonians 2:2-3)."
Number Four - James Speaking (The Return) - "After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build up again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up; That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things (Acts 15:16-17)."
However, Fields of the Wood still has its sacred and glorious meaning as the Jews were the first to act out this vision in the Early Church, but, never before has a complete vision been set-up in the Gentiles as it was February 13, 1957. It has been a little here and a little there until the vision of all has been revealed which is the vision in the Gentiles spoken by the prophet Habakkuk in chapter two, verses two and three, and I quote, "And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make is plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie; though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."
