To give some color to this age-old Black & White Picture of “Painting” a good, honest, sincere, and Godly person with various shades of fraud, hypocrisy, malfeasance, sleaze, and lechery, is a ruse whose “Sleight of Hand” lurked about in the ever-darkening heart of Lucifer, then, when cast like lightning through the heavens to the earth (Luke 10:18), strategically veiled itself in the soft summer shade of Eden, where it gained a “Foothold” in the MIND of man, became a “Stronghold” in the HEART of man, and now rules this Present Evil World through the deeds of the perverse, demented, ruthless, HANDS of fallen men, ♥ MASTERS OF COZENAGE ♠, who have the unrelenting habit, strategy, if you will, of accusing the good and the godly of the very things that they themselves are guilty of. ♠ MASTERS OF COZENAGE ♠  Its victims range from Abel to Noah, from Abraham to David, from David to Christ, and from Jesus the Christ right down to you and I. To this very day, this wicked ruse abounds! However, those who are “In Christ”, as were the fore-mentioned Patriarchs, know full well; “IT” HAS BEEN JUDGED!!!  …and though it doesn’t seem so, “… in a very little while, we will see them no more, forever²” (Psalm 37:10)

How so, you say?

Well, “IT” came down the pike like this,

“When He – The HOLY SPIRIT – “CAME” – through the “Baptism” of the Holy Spirit with the EVIDENCE – He Convicted the World of Sin, of Righteousness, and of Judgement.” 

Of SIN! Why? Because we DID NOT BELIEVE HIM.”

“Of RIGHTEOUSNESS, because HE HAS RETURNED TO THE FATHER”… (and sent His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, bearing forth the TRUTH, the innermost Being of the Father, to dwell within us, LEAVING NO ONE WITH AN EXCUSE, for HE is available to each and everyone who DESIRES Him, no matter who you are or what you are, His “OFFER” is to whosoever will). (John 14:26, 15:26, 16:7)

“Of JUDGEMENT, because the very moment HE CAME OUT OF THAT GRAVE with the KEYS OF DEATH AND HELL the ♠ MASTER OF COZENAGE ♠, the Prince of this Present, Evil World was defeated, JUDGED and CONDEMNED….Therefore, when The SPIRIT of TRUTH comes, (and He has come), HE will GUIDE us into ALL TRUTH.” (not a little bit, not a smidgen, NOT JUST WHAT WE MIGHT AGREE WITH, not just enough to build our own little religious structure to get us by and make everything alright while we live a contradictory life with one foot in the “ways & means” of this present, evil world. No! “IF” we, indeed, have received the BAPTISM of the HOLY SPIRIT, with the EVIDENCE, HE WILL DO NOTHING LESS THAN GUIDE US INTO ALL TRUTH, ALL TRUTH, ALL TRUTH – THE WHOLE COUNSEL of THE WORD OF GOD. Consider this closely: He (the Holy Spirit) shall GLORIFY the LORD, NOT MAN!!! BEWARE OF MEN WHO GLORIFY THEMSELVES, NO MATTER HOW HUMBLE, BENEVOLENT, FRIENDLY, CHARISMATIC, OR KNOWLEDGABLE THEY MAY SEEM, ESPECIALLY THE ONES WHO THINK THEY ARE GOD’S GIFT TO MANKIND!

And just HOW will the HOLY SPIRIT GLORIFY GOD? “Why, He will, throughout our lives, take of what is HIS and make it clear to usHe shall DECLARE TO US (not to some gainsaying Peppermint Prophet or Prancing Peacock who claims to be, not only our conscience, but also an interpreter between us and God, or to some “Visitor From Doo-lally Land” who loves to be called “Rabbi, Rabbi, Father, or Teacher” who dearly loves the Uppermost Hand and Chief Seats in the Fellowship, NO!!! For (“IF” WE ARE “IN CHRIST”) we are ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST (Family) who have but ONE MASTER and that MASTER is CHRIST, {Matthew 23:6-10}), AND, IT IS “TO US”, “TO US”, “TO US”, “TO ARMS”, THAT HIS “SPIRIT” WILL DECLARE THINGS THAT ARE TO COME.” (John 16:8-14,²wcv)  …if, indeed, we do BELONG to HIM,  “…He will, THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES², DECLARE TO “US”, THINGS THAT ARE TO COME, AND ARM US WITH WEAPONS THAT ARE MIGHTY TO THE ILLUMINATION OF DECEIVERS AND THE TEARING DOWN OF SATANIC STRONGHOLDS CONSTRUCTED AGAINST THE PROVIDENCE OF ALMIGHTY GOD AND HIS CHILDREN OF THE PROMISE” (2 Corinthians 10:4, Romans 9:8, ²&¹wcv)  it is a WALK of WAR in the REALM of the SPIRIT by FAITH!

And so, what is this Character we are to bear forth that all these Masters of Cozenage, which have greatly infiltrated the American Church today, from the influences of the Church of Satan, and his One World Order, to the cajolery and snow-jobs of Religious Scallywags and Charlatans who come to make merchandise of us, (2 Peter 2:3) right on down to the peril of enigmatic False Brethren (2 Corinthians 11:26, Galatians 2:4), not to mention the soft-soaping of the Lukewarm (Revelation 3:16)…what Character is it we are we to bear forth that all these spirits of deception, Masters of Cozenage, might themselves be exposed, overcome, and brought under the feet of the Children of Promise in these very confusing Last Days in which we live; of which the Scriptures say, “If these Days were not cut short, even the Very Elect will be deceived? For False Christs and False Prophets shall arise in abundance² displaying Lying Signs and Wonders to SEDUCE even the Very Elect…” (Mark 13:20,22)  Just what “Character” is it that we are to Bear Forth and Walk In that will put these Masters of Cozenage under our feet?

The answer to that is, the CHARACTER of CHRIST! And the ONLY WAY we can truly BEAR FORTH and WALK IN the CHARACTER of CHRIST is through the BAPTISM of the HOLY SPIRIT and FIRE (Matthew 3:11, Acts 1:8, 2:38,), and there is ONLY ONE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, and that IS the ONE that BEARS FORTH THE EVIDENCE, the GIFT of TONGUES. (Mark 16:17, Acts 2:4, 1 Corinthians 14:39) There are no different degrees and various versions of the BAPTISM of the HOLY SPIRIT & FIRE, there is ONLY ONE, and it is He alone, the HOLY SPIRIT, that can illuminate deceit, surpass the limited understanding of the human mind and open up the Realm of the Mind of Christ to us! When praying In The Spirit (in Tongues), this Gift EXCELS, taking us far beyond the realm of our own wisdom and understanding deep into the limitless Wisdom and Power of God in the Mind of Christ. (1Corinthians 2:4 &16)  And how do we RECEIVE SUCH A WONDERFUL, POWERFUL GIFT? By laying aside all the Doctrines of Men along with our PRIDE, and  SEEKING IT? (Matthew 7:7,8)…which brings us to a Song written by a man upon whom the Holy Spirit descended and resided all the days of his life (1 Samuel 16:13); a warrior, a king, a singer-psalmwriter, a type and shadow of Christ to come, a true prophet! He penned this Song some 3000 years ago. It is a Song of David, a Song of the Preparation of the Heart that it might Receive ALL that God wants to bless us with, so “That our Faith does not stand in the wisdom of the men of the world, but in the POWER of GOD that we might SPEAK the Wisdom of God in a Mystery (Tongues) among them that are perfect (In Christ); A Mystery (Tongues) ordained for our glory, that we might glorify God,” (1 Corinthians 2:5,6,7) which brings us to  Psalm 26  

                                                                     <<A Psalm of David>>

  1. JUDGE ME, (Woe! Take that one to heart)! (You go praying this in ernest and you best brace yourself²). Judge me, O LORD, that I might walk in my integrity; because (if)² my Faith is IN YOU, O LORD, I am in no danger of slipping.

  2. Weigh me in the balance, O LORD, and by Your Fiery Touchstone², you know, the One who owns the Refiner’s Fire², purge my thoughts and my heart!

  3. For Your Lovingkindness towards me is forever before me; it is Your SPIRIT alone², O LORD, that enables me to walk in All Truth.

  4. In like manner with You, O HOLY SPIRIT², I will not sit amongst the vain, nor will I assemble with what is false.

  5. In Truth, and in deed², I do hate the company of evil. I will not sit in the congregations’ of the Harlot, amongst doctrines of demons and doctrines of men². (Selah)²

  6. You have washed my hands of such nonsence², O LORD, and they are clean; so will I spend my days with clean and lifted hands round about Your Throne², in the Secret Place of the Most High!²

  7. That I may, now and for all eternity², on my instrument of six strings², sing Songs of Thanksgiving, telling of all Your great and mighty wonders.

  8. How amiable is my Father’s House², MY HEART², wherein do dwell Your Honor and Your Splendor, and Your Spirit.

  9. Abiding there, are the Spirit and the Truth², therefore, my soul shall never be gathered with the souls of the wicked, and so, taking this into account, why should I fear that my life may be trodden underfoot by bloodthirsty men,   

  10. Masters of Cozenage², whose hands are full of bribes and whose souls are stained with the everlasting damnation of the blood of the innocent, the downtrodden, the righteous and the deceived².

  11. No! As for me, I will Walk in the Spirit², in the simplicity, the mercy, the Grace, the integrity, the Power, and prosperity of my Lord, which are mine indeed, for I have been redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb Slain!²

  12. Because of You, O LORD², my feet now stand upon the High Terrain in the Congregation of the Righteous², in the Secret Place of the Most High², that I might bless You, O Lord, all the days of my life!²(Psalm XXVI,²wcv)

 Wherein, like the Apostle Paul,  I can truly say, “O, Death, where is your sting!?  O Grave, where is your victory!? (1 Corinthians 15:55)

“Though I have been backbitten by the envenomed doctrines of men, and though I have been in great peril of false brethren (2Corinthians 11:26), as well as mauled by the malice of the Harlot, and though I have been pursued by those who know nothing but lies, slander, and cruelty, I shall never be driven from the House of my Father! O LORD, judge between me and my enemy, though I am a warrior, I have not repaid them evil for evil! Lord, raise up Your Hand and scatter these Strange Children, these Masters of Cozenage².” (1 Peter 3:9, Psalm 144:7 &11,²&¹wcv)

Blessed be the Name of the Lord

Who teaches my hands to war,

And my fingers to fight!

You are my Goodness, my Fortress,

My High Tower,

Who else in the world would I trust,

Who else in the world would I trust!?


Bow down Your heavens,

Come down and walk amongst Your kin,

Raise up Your Hand, Lord, and scatter

These Strange Children!

Cast forth Your lightning,

Bring ’em down neath the Feet of Your Son.

Lord, we want to be shed of

These Strange Children!


Consider My servant, Job

Who, while in the Dark Night of His Soul,

Satan came to call,

Yet Job refused to fall and through it all

I restored him one hundred fold!

Where else in the world would I go to restore my soul,

Where would I go but to the Lord?


How we long to see Your Kingdom come,

How we long to see You will Be Done

In this Land that we Love, this Land that we love!

Walk beside us, and guide us

Through the night by Your Light from above,

Who else in the world would we trust,

Tell me, Who else in the world would we trust?


Bow down Your heavens,

Come down and walk amongst Your kin,

Raise up Your Hand, Lord, and scatter

These Strange Children!

Roll out Your Thunder (Judgement),

Bring ’em down neath the Feet of Your Son.

Lord, we want to be shed of

These Strange Children                       {From the Song, STRANGE CHILDREN ©wc} 

The heart of man is a twisted thing, and much to his chagrin², completely impossible to be searched out by the man himself: Who then², is able to discern its motives?²  I the LORD alone² am the Searcher of the heart, the Tester of the thoughts of mankind², so that I may, on the Day of Judgement², give to every man the reward of his ways, in keeping with the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:9-10)

God bless us, each, and every one, with “Hearts that are continually searched by the Holy Spirit”, thus, making “double-dog-sure” that there is no “strangeness” in us and that we are, indeed, abiding in the Secret Place of the Most-High and that the Secret Place of the Most-High does, indeed, Abide In Us!
