Naaman’s Journey to a Body Change, a Mystery of the End Time Bride
As believers in the revealed word of the hour we know that the body change and rapture process follows the pattern set out in I Thessalonians 4:16 of a Shout, Voice, and Trump of God.
The ‘Shout” was the sounding of the end time message by the 7th Angel to the Laodicean Church age around 50 years ago, we are now well advanced along the journey from this today.
The rapture process that began with the declaration of the end time message is now nearing the completion of its cycle, very soon we will witness the resurrection of the sleeping saints, then those of us who are alive and have remained faithful to the word for this day will put on glorified bodies, and together (as the complete bride body of Christ of 7 church ages) we will meet the Lord in the air. This is not a fairy tale, but an unfailing promise of God.
If we look back in the bible to the story of Naaman the leper we can also find this same process of shout, voice, and trump patterned through this story because Naaman was a gentile that came under the sounding of a message and prophecy of an Elijah/Elisha anointing for the purpose of receiving a body change.
In this story of II Kings 5 we find that Elisha is a prophet to the gentile Naaman (we have also had prophet to the Gentiles in our day), and so Naaman types the gentile Church that receives a body change under the message and ministry of an Elijah spirit and anointing.
II Kings 5:9 So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha. Naaman came from a wealthy gentile kingdom, a type of this rich Laodicean gentile age today.
10 And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, - a messenger carries a message, the message of the hour, which to us in this day is the shout of I Thessalonians 4:16 - saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. A promise made to Naaman of a body change under the voice of the instruction and revelation of the message spoken to him.
11 But Naaman was wroth, His opinion and attitude toward Elisha’s message at this stage of the process was not right, he needed to have a change of attitude and understanding towards the message of the hour or he would never have gone on to receiving his healing and body change - and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper. He wanted to see a performance, a public show like that of the 1st and 2nd pull ministry of the Prophet of this day, not understanding that the 3rd pull (The revealing of the Word) was not to be a public show.
12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? Some denominational churches may look better and even cleaner than message churches, “aren’t they just as good” was his reasoning - may I not wash in them, and be clean? Denominational teaching won’t wash you clean.
So he turned and went away in a rage. His “feelings” were hurt, he was making decisions based on feelings and reasoning instead of obedience to the Voice of Elisha’s message, his wrong attitude towards the word nearly cost him his new body.
Naaman was now at the Voice stage of the journey to the promised body change that Elisha had prophesied. The shout (message) had already been sounded, and now he was under the sounding of the Voice or the instruction (teaching) stage of that message.
Naaman had to now progress from the Voice (Teaching) stage of the journey to the “Trump” (Body change) of the journey.
13 And his servants came near, (the servants are the 5 fold ministry) and spake unto him, (they preached a few sermons to him) and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? In other words, why don’t you just obey what the prophet said, rather than coming up with excuses (about why woman shouldn’t have to grow their hair long, or why the men can’t wear shorts and simple instructions like that).
Naaman was a hearer of the revealed word under the message of Elisha’s 3rd pull ministry, but there would be no body change for him until he became a doer of the word, so before he could have a body change he needed to progress from a hearer of the message to a doer of the message.
14 Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: He finally came to a place in his heart with the help of the 5 fold ministry of his gentile servants that his attitude had change towards the word of God, he fully surrender to the will of God for his life and went from being a hearer of the word to a doer of the word, - and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.
His flesh was turned back young again, a perfect type of this end time gentile church age bride that will receive a body change under the ministry and voice of the Elijah/Elisha anointing and prophecy where their flesh will be turned back to young men and young woman again.
We can see that the journey that Naaman travelled on from Shout, to Voice, to Trump, is the same process and journey that we are also on today.
Full obedience to the word of the hour was the vehicle that carried Naaman to the final stage of his journey and promised body change.
These types and shadows were mysteries in the Bible that have now been revealed under the ministry of the 7th Angels message after the opening of the 7 seals to show us the process and stage of the journey that we are on in relation to our promised body change for this hour.
This story reveals to us the response and attitude that we are to have towards the message of the Elijah’s spirit Voice of this day if we are to also manifest a body change at the end of this age.
May we all take heed to the instruction of the true 5 fold ministry of this hour who are trying to encourage us to fully obey the revealed word. Obedience to the word of God is what transported Naaman from the Voice stage of the journey to the final Trump (body change). It is obedience to the full word of God that will also lead us to the final stage of our journey to the body change and rapture cycle.
This is not about legalism, nor is it about following a big list of rules without making mistakes, this is about an attitude and a love affair with Christ the Word, and a willingness to do all that we can to walk in the light and become doers of the word of this hour.
