KEYS TO TRANSFORMATION
By Behold I Come
Yahushua's Holy Spirit has expressed to me to remind His people of His urgent instructions. All who are followers of Yahushua, Jesus the Messiah must very carefully examine every shred of teaching or prophecy that
you accept as truth. Just because something 'sounds' good, holy or believable does NOT make it so. Just because a person is popular or posted all over the Internet does not mean they are hearing clearly.
message a person gives must ALWAYS AND CONSISTENTLY speak of Yahushua's sacrifice, the need for repentance, and focus on Him and His Word. The only way to know truth from deception is to know the Word yourself, because it is in this way you can know, or be
intimate with Yahushua. His Holy Word is pure truth, and anyone speaking anything but this, or even a mixture of it is to be avoided.
There are so many voices now saying they have heard from the Lord.
Many, many deliver mixed messages because they read and watch so many others that say they also hear from the Lord, and this only serves to engage the mind. The body of His church can be easily confused and very distracted by all these different messages.
Yahushua strongly recommends that each of His children study the scriptures as often as possible so His Holy Spirit can write His Word on your heart. His Spirit will give you the discernment you need when you are obedient in this so you will not be swept away
in a world gone crazy.
Pray about fasting from the Internet and looking at anything prophetic until you have disciplined yourself to immerse in the Word of God. Learning the deeper meanings of His
Word will help you immensely, rather than searching the Internet for 'a word' from man. Soon enough, we will not have the Internet to get a 'word' from anyone from the Lord, so it is IMPERATIVE that you learn to receive from Him yourself. Things are changing
so incredibly fast, Yahushua is urging us to be prepared. The Word and abiding in Him is our only hope when all else crumbles. We've been taught and warned and we need to obey. Tomorrow is never guaranteed.
pray about seeking Him more earnestly, spending less time in the world and on the internet, and more time learning of Him. He does not disappoint! Will you know His will for you and understand how He is speaking to you when all that is left is your Bible??
Do not simply believe the words I post either without always studying the scripture that I list with each message. It is His Holy Spirit that will confirm the message, not me, not my internet reputation, only His Spirit through His Word. Please have printed
copies of the warfare prayers and as many of the messages that you are able. We're out of time.. J

Matthew 24:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
I am the Door, the only Way, the Gate through which you must enter in to reach My Kingdom. A door means there are keys given, but only to those who walk with Me. Mysteries will be revealed to those who walk in obedience. I open the Door to those
who walk by faith. Since I am the Door, the Portal through which you must enter to know the mysteries I will show to you, I provide these keys necessary to open this Door, this portal, so that things not of this world can be revealed to you.
I wish to give you further revelation as to the keys you have been given, My beloved ones. Keys open and keys shut. There are keys of knowledge, and keys can be applied for greater wisdom to be granted. If you receive My words and hide My commandments
within you, if you walk in the fear of the Lord, if you will be open to My wisdom and pray for understanding and knowledge, it will be granted to you. Your free will choices utilize keys in the spirit, that either open doors or mysteries to My Kingdom, or
cause them to remain shut. There is a law of cause and effect in this life. Every thought, word or action has an effect, sometimes you will see it manifest in the physical, natural world, but there will always be an effect in the spiritual realm.
Remember how I have talked to you about paradigm shifts? The power that is available to you through your obedience and faith in Me can only be understood if you understand that My presence in and through you will alter
everything around you. My presence in you shifts frequencies that are of a lower nature into a higher one, resulting in an effect that you will soon realize more fully, once I completely indwell you.
is granted to My righteous ones, to take the keys, using My authority, and walk through Me, the Door, to achieve a greater maturity, a greater revelation, into another dimension and higher frequency. This will release My glory in this realm; it will bring
truth where there is darkness; it will set captives free from the bondage of the lower realm and cause Heaven and My Kingdom to come to earth as it is in Heaven. It is by faith that you take these keys and gain access to things previously unknown.
I will not force a choice on any soul, and therefore you must freely make the choice to stand on the solid ground of My Word, fully submitting to Me in every aspect of your life in order that I then will move on your
behalf, as your will aligns with My will. When this alignment occurs, the impossible becomes possible and I then bring the supernatural into the natural, in and through My instruments of righteousness. When you walk by faith and not by sight, I do the work
here in and through you that you were purposed and sent to do.
There is also a frequency or vibrational shift to this walk of faith that occurs in your very cells as you give permission for your temples
to come back into alignment with your Creator. Energy and great power are released in the natural realm with this shift when you learn to apply My spiritual blood sacrifice, pure Truth unveiled, in these temples you reside in.
You were created in Our image, made of flesh and blood but yet spirit. Your spirit took on a vehicle just as My Spirit, One with My Father, took on a vehicle of flesh and blood to show you the Way. I am the Way. I came to free you from the curse
of the fall of man, and I took on a fleshly form in order to have My flesh die, and then rise, so that My blood, which is the blood that carries Life, could be applied to the mercy seat for you. By doing this, I made a way for you, who are under the curse,
to be set free, by the Truth that I embodied and manifested.
Here is truth- the life is in the blood, and your DNA is divinely designed, because you are made in Our image. When I rose and My blood covered
the mercy seat, access was granted to you, a way made through Truth, through Me who is perfect Truth, to free you from the curse and to show satan that all who are made in Our image and who choose to align themselves with Me will be set free. I overcame death,
not just death of the flesh, but spiritual eternal death. I was the example of eternal life, transforming from corruptible to incorruptible.
When the fall occurred, the light of My love, and My Truth,
was greatly diminished on the earth, but especially in My creation, those who We had made. The temples made of flesh no longer completely resonated with their Creator, on a cellular level, and the Light and Truth that I AM, was not able to be fully activated
and functional in this realm as it was meant to be. There was a corruption, and because of sin, this prevented man from operating in his fullest potential. Truth was veiled and deception entered and grew.
knew that if he could corrupt through sin, and then mix serpent seed with the blood of those in My image, My blood which holds the Truth and is the Life, man would walk in darkness and never find the Way which is Me. He is manipulating the blood of life now
even more than ever before, furiously and aggressively, as artificial intelligence is being implemented everywhere. His goal is to destroy all those made in My image through this corruption of the blood, by altering DNA, so you will be spiritually lost forever.
He believes he can destroy the seed of Messiah in My people.
This is why I came in the flesh, to reveal Truth, that eternal life is in My blood, the blood bought sacrifice, and all who believe in Me as
their Redeemer will have eternal life. Use these keys of knowledge to reveal this truth in your own temple.
I am My Word and My Word is Truth. Therefore when you apply the Word, My Truth and My Blood in
every aspect of your life, changes occur not just in the flesh, but in your spirit. It is in this way that you bring yourself back into alignment with Me, activating the DNA I have placed in you, that carries My light and My Truth and which shatters all darkness.
Applying My Blood to the door of your heart, walking in My Truth and My statutes, allows the brilliance of My love to flood every cell of your being and transform that which was carnal and dead to that which is alive eternally. It is in this way that I remain
enthroned on your heart and nothing evil can enter in.
Another key to understanding, of knowledge, is to then implement this revelation to all aspects of your life. By frequent repentance, seeking Me,
and living in obedience, your application of these truths consistently, will then literally transform you on a cellular level. As you continue to stand on Truth, implementing it, you move from glory to glory. This is known as transcendence. You are leaving
a lower frequency and shifter higher, closer and closer to your Creator.
There is a great deal of power and authority that is released when one of My children walks in this way. I release to you who are
walking this way, all that is required for your journey with Me here. The higher you choose to come into intimacy with Me, the more I release to you. The Father of Lights gives good gifts to His children and the storehouses of Heaven open! This spiritual discipline
and application in your life will continue to allow the release of blessings and gifts during your journey here, until I come for My first-fruits collectively.
Your transformation is an ongoing process
of continual sanctification and purification by refinement, and a constant free will choice to walk in complete faith, standing on My promises. I have told you before, a moment by moment mikvah is required, an ongoing repentance and renewing in your temple.
As you stand on Me, the Rock and your Solid Ground, every thought , word or action and its effect will then be just as I have designed it, for My glory alone. It is in walking this way that you shift the paradigm, the dynamics of all around you and all you
come in contact with, although you are at this time not fully aware of the results of this shift.
You are taught to be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Be circumspect and prayerful about each
and every thing you say and do, and your destiny will unfold before you as you come into harmony with My will for you. I tell you that you must be born again, and even this has many layers. This rebirth I speak about must be something you commit to each day,
in every moment. I only said what My Father said and did what I saw My Father do. Are you not to do the same?
I gave the example while on earth. Walk in My footsteps. Take up your cross, and follow Me.
Trust Me and obey. Manifest My presence here on earth. Glorify Our Father in Heaven in every breath. Love as I have loved you. Forgive as I forgive. Have mercy and mercy will be shown to you. Pray for your enemies and those who persecute you. Freely give and
it will be given to you, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give to you. Be holy as I am holy.
If My impact on earth as the Son of God, can have the effect I had when I walked this
earth, imagine what the effects will be when all My remnant walk in this way, fully glorifying Our Father in Heaven! It is then you will remember My saying, you will do all these things and more! Collectively, My presence in all My chosen throughout the world
will change the world forever! It is not only a personal transformation but a transformation of the earth as Heaven invades.
What you are seeing now in the natural play out is not your reality. It is an
illusion, designed by satan to deceive you into believing lies, and to prevent you from walking as a son or daughter of the Most High. If you continue to live in sin and your focus is on the darkness, judgment and hopelessness, that is all you will know. Continue
to commit sin and you are the bondservant of sin. So you see, when you choose to serve Me with all your heart, soul, mind and strength in faith, this allows the use of the keys I have given you to then be able to perceive a better way, My way, My design for
all that is happening, all that I allow.
My remnant have their complete focus on Me and the fulfillment of My Word, and therefore are looking towards the things of Heaven, of home, and not of things of
the earth, which is soon to pass away. My desire is that all would be filled with the joy and peace I give in the knowing that you are the generation which will see My soon return! I will bring glory and revival in the hearts of My people, and the darkness
that I will allow now to rule over the lands will only be permitted for a short season. Then the whole world will know, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that I AM THE LORD. You will see this day and rejoice, as the ending for My beloved is not
one of despair and hopelessness, but rather a transformation into a new beginning, the eternal shift from mortal to immortal, flesh to spirit, as I move you from glory to glory!
I cannot stress to you
enough, be so very careful what your eyes see and your ears hear as fewer and fewer across the earth speak My truth. The darkness will continue as I said for a time, but truly I tell you I am about to do something in your days that you would not believe even
if I were to tell you! I will set the world on fire with My love manifested through you, My chosen ones. You will run and not grow weary, you will see the rewards for your faithfulness, you will have recompense for all the enemy has stolen from you, and I
will heal you and prosper you. You will see your enemies defeat as you perform signs and wonders in My name. This day is upon you My loves, this is why your positioning remains so crucial. Do not look to the left or to the right, only look up! Your redemption
The King is jealous for His beloved and I am coming for My first-fruits. While judgment by famine, pestilence, disease, war, and the beast system rage all around you, I will hide you in the shelter
of My wing. My angels surround you on all sides, and no harm will come to My sealed, My anointed ones. My grace is enough for you and preparing you for what is now here. Pray to walk in your full measure of faith and for wisdom discerning what I am speaking
to you and it will be given. Pray to be used mightily and it shall be done. Greater is He that lives in you than he that lives in the world.
Although it appears that the enemy is prevailing, there is a
reason this is occurring. From the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. It is time to for My remnant to take their full authority and position in Me and use the keys which I have provided.
As I have said before, there is a great separation occurring, as the winnowing is taking place. All those who refuse to obey Me and seek truth, which has always been available, will now be separated from those who are closest to My Heart. This is My design,
so do not lose heart, the key is your perspective. Set your mind on things above, not on things of this world, and watch will I will do! Yet another key for you to activate if you have not already.
you are in a season like no other, and you have been chosen for this time of now. Walk with the faith that moves mountains and you will receive the crown of life. My Kingdom is not for the faint of heart. My Kingdom is for the over-comers, the strong and courageous
in spirit, who worship Me in spirit and in truth. It belongs to the meek and the humble, the contrite of heart and the servants, for it is you who the world scorns and rejects, ridicules and mocks that will rule the nations as kings and priests. I will bring
the haughty low and the low I will raise to positions of honor. I will bring recompense where it is due and truth will reign.
So rise up My men and women of valor, rise up and use your keys-it is time!!
John 10:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved,
and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
26 Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall
be loosed in heaven.
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest
for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God.
99 I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation.
100 I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.
17 If any man will do his will, he shall
know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
34 And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever
will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that
resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord God. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.
31 Cast away from you all your transgressions,
whereby ye have transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost
part of the earth.
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach
deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
2 Corinthians 5:7
7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also
without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.
11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree
12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.
1 John 1:7
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
1 Corinthians 15:53
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the
earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit
offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
2 Corinthians 3:18
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough
to receive it.
2 Thessalonians 2:13
13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation
through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
2 Timothy 2:21
21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet
for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work
8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing
of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
115 Not unto us,
O Lord, not unto us, but unto thy name give glory, for thy mercy, and for thy truth's sake.
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have
loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
13 For he shall have judgment without mercy,
that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely
38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure
that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
1 Peter 1:16
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily,
I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will
hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
17 For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not
be remembered, nor come into mind.
34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
21 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.
11 For it is written, As I live,
saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
1 John 2:16
16 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.
25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee
15 The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge
5 Behold ye among the heathen,
and regard, and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall
renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
23 And whatsoever ye do,
do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
7 For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
17 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
3 Long time therefore abode
they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.
28 And when these things begin
to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
2 Corinthians 11:2
2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused
you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall
be thy shield and buckler.
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the
wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt
the earth and the sea,
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
2 Corinthians 12:9
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure
1 John 4:4
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I
say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I
will give thee a crown of life.
24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
15 And the mean man shall be brought down, and the
mighty man shall be humbled, and the eyes of the lofty shall be humbled:
16 But the Lord of hosts shall be exalted in judgment, and God that is holy shall be sanctified in righteousness.
30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
