Meeting in the Air
By: Jo Smith ~~~~~~~ August 7, 2020
In order to understand Scripture you must read it SPIRITUAL. You must learn what the ‘carnal’ words that you read really mean SPIRITUALLY. Else you are carnal minded, (natural interpretation), and that carnal mind is death. It is enmity to God.
Here is the spiritual meaning of the word, AIR, according to Strong’s concordance:
1) that which goes forth, army, war, warfare, host
1a) army, host
1a1) host (of organised army)
1a2) host (of angels)
1a3) of sun, moon, and stars
1a4) of whole creation
1b) war, warfare, service, go out to war
I am not going to look up and quote many scriptures in this message for I want to get it done quickly. If you ever read it you will know this anyway.
Scripture says that we meet the Lord in the AIR and so shall we ever be with Him. It also says that satan is the prince of the power of the air.
So this cannot be speaking of up in space or any of that carnal stuff. Air is warfare. Air is where the battle is going on.
Air is an army. This is the only thing that has ever made sense of this to me. Now I see it. Wanna and I were studying this today. She asked me what the air is. I said I do not know right now. We must study it and seek for the answer. We did and God gave it to us as He promised to do.
I wrote a good, long message years ago called, There must be war. And this is so true. We must be at war with satan and his lies and his lying preachers and churches. They have taken away all knowledge of any truth. We must bring back the truth so people can truly be SAVED.
Believing lies is not going to save anyone. Church folks who are tiny babes, just run to some meeting and watch a show, listen to someone else, pay someone, go home forget it, are not fit to be in any army. You must be deep in the truth of God’s word to be in this army. Hebrews tells us that you must have your senses exercised to discern between good and evil, to be deep in the word, to not be babes, eating milk. But you must be able to eat STRONG MEAT of the Word, to be in this army.
When you think that meeting the Lord in the Air means being snatched up off this earth and carried off to some ‘yonder’ land, you are into fables and lies. A person believing this lie cannot possibly be in any battle with Satan.
The word, CLOUDS, means a large crowd. The Word said, the weapons of our WARFARE are not natural, carnal, but Spiritual. So you must have a spiritual mind and know the word of God, be strong in faith, bold, to be in this army of God, to battle Satan and his army.
Genesis 1: 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.
Fowl that fly above the ‘earth’ in the open firmament of heaven. Not the Heaven where God dwells, but the heaven where these Witnesses sit. Apostles were that first group or cloud of witnesses and they were the fowls flying around in this firmament.
The second group of witnesses will be the other fowl flying in the air, fighting that battle of the Lord. We are now fighting this battle, trying to bring you fish of the sea out into the open wilderness. Then you can stop feeding your BEAST of the field that is robbing you of your money and eternal life. He is that evil one that we must defeat in order to win this battle or war.
Until you understand these terms, spiritually you will never understand what Scripture is telling us.
2 Peter 2 King James Version (KJV)
2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
False prophets, bringing in damnable heresies, covetous, make MERCHANISE of you.
10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
natural brute beasts,
The above are the BEAST OF THE FIELD. See that it also identifies them as CLOUDS? THEY ARE wells. THEY ARE NATURAL BRUTE BEASTS. These are the BEAST that Scripture speaks of. Yet almost everyone of you are looking for some mysterious ONE person to show up and that is the beast. Nothing but deception.
They lie, cheat, commit adultery, all the while lifting themselves up as your pastor, prophet, minister; but they covet your money. You must PAY THEM. This is the MARK OF THE BEAST. He is a BEAST, and follows the way of Balaam who loved the WAGES of unrighteousness. It is unrighteous to take pay for a supposed work for God. It is the mark that this person is a BEAST.
Proof that they at one time learned the way of righteousness; (but they sold out for lust; money).
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
Now let Jude also tell us what the BEAST IS:
JUDE: 10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. [Look at all the identification here: they covet reward; they are spots in your ‘feasts’; they are trees, waves of the sea,,proving they are part of the SEA. They are the sea and you are a fish in their sea. ]
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage.
See, again saying they are BEASTS, running in the way of Cain and greedily after the error of Balaam for REWARD. This is that PAID PREACHER. He is the beast of the field and is set for total destruction. When you pay them and listen to them and believe their lies, you also have that mark of the beast. Let no one tell you it is some foolish computer chip of any other manmade devise.
That paid beast is who is deceiving you into believing that you are going to be snatched up off this earth and go off up to heaven to be with Jesus. But let Scripture tell you how Jesus comes to us:
11Thes: 1: 7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
2 Thessalonians 2 King James Version (KJV)
2 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. ~~ [this is your paid beast or pastor; he sets himself up to be worshipped or idolized and you love it].
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. ~~[I am revealing them right now.]
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
This clearly says that Jesus will come AFTER the working of satan and his lying signs and wonders. He is coming in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who know not God, but paid that preacher to lie to them. They will be damned for believing that lying mouth. This is when Psalms 149 will be fulfilled. This is when we go out to meet Jesus and join him in his Army to battle satan and take down the evil kingdoms on this earth and cast them into that lake of fire. That BATTLE, or war, is the AIR that we are caught up into. We are not leaving this earth to go anywhere. Those CLOUDS are the great crowd of WITNESSES, who will be in the army of the Word.
See that is said, we are gathered to him, when he comes to earth in this flaming fire. Gathered to him. How can you miss this? Not going off into space; gathering to meet him here, in the air, which is the battle between satan and his army and Jesus and his army. It is clearly taught in Revelation. No excuse for all these lies to have almost every church person on earth deceived.
Jesus told his disciples, ‘I will make you FISHERS of MEN’….. thus clearly identifying those lost masses of folks, to be the sea and the fish in that sea.
He has also clearly identified that BEAST OF THE FIELD as covetous men who make MERCHANDISE OF YOU. They are wolves in sheep clothing, lusting for reward or MONEY. They must be paid to tell you a thing. All that they tell you is LIES TO DAMN YOUR SOULS.
The Witnesses of Jesus, are the ones who are deep in the Word and strong to be in the battle, are the FOWLS OF THE AIR. We are the ones who are able to battle in this warfare and defeat satan. It is that battle of Armageddon.
The coming as a ‘thief’ is described in Joel 2. It is this same cloud of witnesses, going to battle against satan and snatching some of the saints out of that lukewarm church. He said we come in at the windows like a thief. We are going to reach into your eyes, spiritually and bring you out of that destruction.
We who are in this army, are not in darkness that that day should overtake us as a thief. We are of the LIGHT and know what time it is. We know that Jesus is coming and we are going to gather to him and defeat every sinner off this earth. Then the whole earth will have rest and be quiet. What a glorious day that will be.
The woman in Revelation 12 is this mature group of witnesses. We will be given two WINGS of an EAGLE to FLY. We will be the one who flies into the wilderness and saves those deceived sheep. We will be the fowls of the AIR. The AIR is this battlefield. It is not off into space. It is happening RIGHT NOW. I am battling satan and his lies and lying paid preachers right now. I am screaming, get out, stop your idol worship. Stop your lies. Stop paying that preacher; it is the mark of the BEAST. It is their mark that they are the beast of the field who will be taken and DESTROYED.
